"And you do a one time only. You go in, there was no trickle. It was one time, you know, the NFL can afford to do, hey, let's try that. Let's do that this year. Hey, we'll wait till next year. Baseball went, nope. Here it is. We're going to throw it all into the blender and mix it up and hopefully it tastes good. Let's see. I mentioned Bryant gumbel's going to join us coming up, get a couple of phone calls in here as well. By the way, the Milwaukee Bucks are the favorites to win the NBA title they were blown out by 41 points against the Celtics last night. Here is Giannis talking about the performance by the bucks. If you don't play hard, they're going to kick out some of those that did it tonight. One by 40. If you don't play hard, and if you don't go out there to make a top for them, they're going to kick out simple as that. There's no level of concern. It's a fact. You know, so now you have this in your head. And it's up to us to see how we're going to deal with it. You know, are we going to play the same way? And if we play the same way, go have the same outcome. How is that possible? That you lose by 41. Boston's good. And I'm 41 points better than Milwaukee. Drew holiday scored 6 points in the loss last time. That's one night after scoring 51. And I was curious what's the lowest scoring game by a player immediately after scoring at least 50 points in a game? Now, minimum playing 20 minutes in the follow-up game, the last time somebody scored less than 6 points after scoring 50 in a game. It's 2016. So it's not that long ago. And a well-known player.

"I mean, a lot everywhere, which was great, and I loved seeing that for the that's where me and my ego and the pod come in. I was happy to see that. But it really is funny this whole weird podcast world, which I've been doing for so long, and I still don't know how it works because you have a guest on who you don't have any expectations for. It turns out to be one of the better ones you've done. And then gets picked up everywhere. So I thank Greg gumbel for that because he's not on social media. Again, like I said, and I hope everyone out there enjoyed the interview. There was great. And you said that before. I forget which guess, but I've heard that before from you like, oh, you didn't expect much to come of it. And then all of a sudden it blew up. So I guess you just never know. And even I noticed that that was, I think they were talking about on the fan too. Referencing somewhere. Even I noticed that that blew up that Greg gumbel interview. That's great. And you know what's funny about it is gumbo is one of these guys, so the whole reason I ended up booking Greg gumbel is because I'm watching the tournament one day, sitting on my fat ass on the couch, not doing anything. And I'm like, this guy's been doing this for a long time. Let me do a little Googling here. Wikipedia. And I see that he was 75 years old. And my mind was blown. I'm like, he said, first of all, he looks like he's 50. And he's 75, and then he said he's been doing the studio for the tournament for 24 years, which I would have said he was doing it for like ten. Like I was like 24. I'm like, I gotta get this guy on. What am I doing? And you know, I thought it might be a little bit of a challenge to get him on because he's not on social media, so I'm sure he has no idea who I am. But it worked out. So I was very happy about that. Very happy. Yeah, it's a great spot. And definitely a change of pace from having Tim dance or Joe buck on every week. Well, once all of the once all of the NFL madness, that's all for us now. Now we can sort of branch out the guest list a little bit, which is, you know, the tournament was a perfect week to have him on. Yeah, so that'll be good. I'll be complaining about I have no guests coming up now and we just have baseball going on. Well, the NBA playoffs now get all the MBA people on. And we'll do that..

"And contemplating how you can get out of apple picking and thinking about running in front of a moving bus. And you see that the Giants are up 24 zero. Are you going to then go home and watch the game on DVR? Yeah. I wouldn't want to. You have to stay off your phone and you can't do that for more than 30 seconds. Yeah. I'm thinking about getting a flip phone. A whole nother topic. I want to detach from the smartphone, but I don't think it would be. I'm not going to ridiculous conversation. You're not getting rid of your iPhone. This is pure nonsense. I'm not even going to get it. You work on radio and TV. You're not going to have an iPhone. I know. Well, the point is even if I want to, I don't think that I could, right? How could anybody survive in business today without him? I would love to see you too with a flip phone. The first time you got to send a text message and you got to hit the button four times to get the E you'll throw it. Remember all those famous scenes in the famous Sopranos episode pine barrens when Pauly and Christopher stuck in the Woods and they keep trying to call Tony and their phones keep cutting out and Tony's always throwing the flip phone. That'd be you once you have to send the text. So let's not even engage in this ridiculous conversation. Doing the overnights on the fan this week, did you get a lot of Will Smith Chris Rock calls? I was on my first show of the week is like Monday morning 2 a.m. so it's really Sunday Night. So I led now, personally, I wanted to do it for a while and I led with it and kind of mixed it in with the NCAA final four. I did not get a lot of calls. I got some, but I did not get as many as I thought. And yesterday, so Monday night, I was talking to somebody in the hallways at CBS portrait, you know, show that you've done before filling in on the network there. And he's like, oh, the slap heard around the world, wall to wall. So local, it doesn't play as much. But nationally, CBS sports radio, he said that's all they were doing. That makes sense. That makes sense. Will Smith needs help. The speech was worse than the slap. I don't understand how people don't like go watch that speech. That's not a well individual, but whatever..

"Of ahead of the curve with having fans back and doing it, but I'm here in New York where it's been like now I'd say a month, three weeks where we feel like COVID's over. Like you don't want to say it because of a jinx, but the mandates were lifted and have you noticed anything different anything different than the last few weeks it shows or live events or anything like that with the pandemic fully in the rearview mirror and stuff like that with a live crowds. I mean, I think there's just a little bit of hope, you know, everybody like, especially in the like we were in Toronto this past weekend did some shows there for the first time since we've been back at touring live. And so we had to cancel some in December because the omicron had popped up and everybody was getting sick again and it was like, you know, just to be there and have that it was a very cathartic feeling for these people for the first time in Ontario getting the opportunity to come and do this again. So I just think that's kind of the general vibe that I've been sensing. It's just when you get out there for the first time and really just get to let everything go, whether it's a concert or WWE, you get this catharsis like, yes, this is life. This is life. We get to live it again. And so there's just a hope and a feeling that not only is there a light at the end of the tunnel, but we're like, we're opening up the door. Again, like you said, let's knock on wood and hope that that's the case. But it's been very nice. You really could not have said it. You really hit the perfect word for it, cathartic. I went to my first concert a couple of weeks ago. And that is the word I would use. It was weird at first, but that you hit the perfect word for it. It was cathartic..

"For sure. And we'll get into the storyline, but I got to ask you, I know you're a big sports fan. I know you're a big Chicago Bears fan. I would assume you're a huge cubs fan as well, or is that a wrong assumption? No, man. Light socks. We took this. Cardinals, baby. Okay. We've talked about this before, and I have a terrible memory. So I mean, it's obviously atrocious that your bears and Cardinals explain it again now. It's clashes. I mean, you just do with your family does, man. That's my grandpa, that's what he did. We watched players games on Sundays in the fall in the winter, and then the cardinals games were on the spring. I never questioned it when I was a tyke and once it's ingrained in your system, you can't betray your grandfather. Well, it goes two ways either you join forces or you go against them to bus balls and beyond. Yeah, I had my moments in football in my teenage years where the bears were awful. And I was like, why aren't we rooting for the forty-niners? I'll root for them. They're the sexy team. The era, you know, Steve Young Jerry Rice, all those guys. And so I had my fling with the niners, but then I came back around. I circled back around to Chicago. This was a big NFL fan. When you do these, you know, the big shows like mania SummerSlam, et cetera. And they're in these, for instance, this WrestleMania on Saturday and Sunday WrestleMania 38 on WWE Network is in Jerry world in Dallas. Obviously, a landmark stadium in the NFL. So if he is an NFL fan, do you get pumped up when you're in these kind of venues? Oh yeah, that's awesome. I mean, first of all, we live for the stadium shows. I mean, this year I think more than any we're doing a ton of them, which is incredible. For just the stature of WWE as it is. But I missed the Jerry world WrestleMania 32. My knee was still in flux at that time. And so this will be my first opportunity to really get to do that. And so I'm really excited. To get out there, to experience what just the screen, what it all looks like, all that good stuff. So yeah, anytime we get into a huge stadium, it's a blast for me. So let's talk about you specifically in mania. The interest of full disclosure for my listeners. We're taping this late Monday afternoon. Podcasts will come out Wednesday. So Seth still has Monday Night Raw. He had a meeting with Vince McMahon Monday morning..

"For you. Oh, so here's a question. Now, we're going to get into Russell maniac. We have a lot to get into WrestleMania 38 Saturday and Sunday, WWE Network, peacock, and we got to get into Seth's opponent. We don't know what's going on. But I'm just curious about that because a lot of people in their work lives. I sort of subscribe to this role and I hope my bosses are not listening, but do it and then deal with the ramifications afterwards. Now you, obviously, now with the hair, was that a thought to maybe do it and deal with it afterwards or there's no doing that Vince always finds out what's going on. No, so it's one of those things where another thing I subscribe to, yes, you know, apologize later as much asking for forgiveness as much easier than asking for permission. But also another one to ascribe to is you have to pick your hills to die on, right? Of course. And some things are not worth that confrontation. And the last thing you want is on the biggest night of your career, essentially, you know, for your boss to not give two shits about your performance and is only focused on one aspect of your costume. Right. And so I'm very collaborative with Vince when it comes to stuff like that. And I didn't want to surprise him in that regard. And it wasn't a crucial part to the presentation. It would have been cute, but it wasn't worth it, you know what I mean? Yeah, definitely. You got to pick your battles. All right, so we've got WrestleMania 38 Saturday and Sunday. It's now a two night extravaganza. Let me start with that. Before they went to the two nights, I guess maybe last year the year before it was the first time they did it with two nights. That was a really, that was getting to be a really, really long ass show. What was that like for the superstars? Well, the longer it got the worse it was..

"How does health have grew up in Chicago, cold as hell? And so I'm here where I enjoy the climate and temperature. But I've always been a hockey fan. I can sit down and watch a hockey game between the two worst teams in the league. On television and get tremendous enjoyment out of it. And I still believe this. Hockey is the only sport. Where you can physically see the uptick in intensity in the postseason. I really believe that that you can look at a game like, oh yeah, that's a Stanley Cup. Right, right. And so would I be able to handle play by play in a hockey game? I don't know. I have a great respect for those who do because the names are a little bit tougher as you go along. You eventually learn it anyway. But I just love the game pocket. Well, Greg, I appreciate this. I had it blast and we have the final four coming up this weekend on CBS Saturday. Yes this year. Oh, TBS TBS that's right. They switch every year. So it's Villanova against Kansas, 6 O 9 eastern, and then North Carolina duke. That's got to get you pumped up, right? Nobody do I just had it all. If he doesn't wear blue, everybody will drop dead of a heart attack. They should be good games and it's funny. We just went through the whole Saint Peter's thing and the problem as it always is. Everybody loves an upset. And but later on, there's a price to pay for that. And that team gets to a higher rated and more talented team and a lot of times the spanking happens as it did this time. But it's still a funny thing to do. We'll all be watching you on Saturday and studio with Charles and Kenny and Clark Kellogg and yeah, there'll be a couple of eyeballs on duke North Carolina. So don't mess up any names then. I'll try not to. Thanks, Greg. Appreciate it. Thank you. Sir, we got your test results back. And give it to me straight, Doc. You have to listen to the podcast ridiculous.

"Game. 38 was a much better football game and the Patriots went in at the buzzer with a kick. But I understand the importance of it. I do get a lot of questions about why I haven't there been more, and I want to ask, you know? It's not my call. But I do appreciate more than anything else to me. I've always appreciated the opportunities that CBS has given me to represent them. And I don't take that lightly, and I know a lot of people don't get that chance. So when I have gotten the chance, I have always felt that it's pretty big bear that standard bearer thing to do. And it's something that I've always treasured and I will always look. Now you were the lead NFL play by play man for CBS for several years back then. When you see now what's going on with the salaries of all of these people, do you say to yourself? If I, you know, if I was in a different era right now because this has gotten, it's gotten crazy the last, you know. I will tell you crazy. I don't have a feel, any need to be jealous of it. I have been treated really nicely and have always, I've always been appreciative of what I have been able to do for a long, long time. So I think that until that doesn't apply to me. I think that what does tickle my thought process is I've never felt in my entire life that there is an announcer who can bring someone to the TV set to watch a game that that viewer wasn't already going to watch. And I believe that the only thing that a broadcaster can do is chase people away. I know this for a fact because I won't name them, but there are three or four announcers. I go, oh, I'm really interested in watching. Oh, nope, click going. Because I would love to.

I think probably was, I think it was probably almost a year. Accordingly acquired WNBC and then you became a huge Don I was fan because he saved you. Yeah, I met him once. I met him once. It was interesting. You know, I just thought of this when I mentioned I miss. I was gonna save this for the very end, but since we mentioned I miss I'll bring it up now. I was on your Wikipedia page just for some research purposes. And it says in your Wikipedia page that you're a huge Howard Stern fan. Is that true? I'm a super fan as well. So have you been on the show? I have. I am a student. I was pissed at myself for not knowing this. I don't understand how I missed this. Well, I don't make it a habit like a lot of people did. In fact, it's been several years because let's face it, there are some arrows flying from time to time and although he's been always been very kind to me, I don't want to push that and there are some people who come away from that show a little bit wounded from time to time. But he has always been very gracious to me and I always enjoy laughing and you know when I'm in the car if there's something if there's something else that he's doing that I'm not interested in I'm listening to stand up uncensored stand up comedy on series exam and I'm a big I'm a big fan of comedy. I've gotten to know some comedians that I enjoy and it's but yeah I've been a hard fan for a long long time. I had no idea. I feel like we have a bond now. You mentioned comedy and listen to this serious station and comedian. So I'll ask Will Smith Chris Rock, you thoughts? Certainly an overreaction and out of place, I think. I didn't know about it. I was on a plane on the way back from New York Sunday Night when it happened. And I love hearing stories like this. When someone doesn't know something the entire country is obsessed with. So yes, tell me, take me through. You finding out about that. Well, I get off the plane and Davis, texts me and he says, did you see Will Smith went all juwan Howard on Chris Rock? Straight line. You're kidding me. And then you look it up and it's all over Google. And everybody's got the clip. On call for, I don't know that I think at least pick on a guy your own size. I think someone had a great line that said, if The Rock had been on the stage, would still be in his seat. But my.

"It's so typical of so many things that you don't appreciate how difficult a job it is until you do it. And then all of a sudden you're up to your neck and the only thing that people at home see is they're watching their game and then you pop on for about 30 seconds to update that someone threw a touchdown pass and Philadelphia and then they sent you back to the game. In the studio, you get there about 7 38 in the morning and you do a little note reading and research and so on and you make up and then there's a production meeting and then there's a rehearsal and you rehearse from about a quarter to 11 until the show goes on at noon. Then you do the entire news show everybody else takes a break. You sit there and the first update that happens, you've got to do that update into the game in Baltimore. Then after that you've got to do that same update into the game and New York, then you've got to do that update into Atlanta. And by the time you finish all of the markets, something else is happening. The problem with being the host of a studio, if you really love football, is you don't get to watch football. You're getting a highlight here and a highlight there. And you really do that throughout the entire first half until it's time to rehearse halftime. Then you do have time that you do the same thing during the second half until you begin to prepare for the 4 o'clock checkups. And it's the same thing all over again and then all of a sudden it's 7 30 in the evening and you're done. You really are not sure what happened until the end of the day. So did you ask CBS to put you back on games after that? Because you felt like you weren't. No, no, I don't know, I enjoyed it, especially with Bradshaw. Who taught me everything stabler didn't teach me. I was going to say we talked about Charles. I mean, what a nice little thing for you to work with Charles and Terry Bradshaw I would imagine you have some Terry Bradshaw stories as well. Yeah, we do. You know, either Barkley, stabler, Bradshaw, you can just put the nameplate wild child in front of them. It would apply..

"You had a great honest moment. I think it was last year's tournament when they CBS and Turner were doing they had these dancing characters coming out and your hosts had a dance with them and they cut to you and you look like you just wanted to basically drop yourself into the ground and never be seen again. My stance is CDS pays me for a lot of things, but one of them isn't to be a fool. I wasn't going to get up there and act like a fool and other people can go and have fun and do it. But I have my limitations at times. To move away from the talk about your career for a little bit here, I mentioned 50th year in sports broadcasting sports media. How vividly do you remember your first sports media gig and tell people what it was if you don't mind? Well, I began, I.

"But there are some people who don't, no matter what happens, they don't want to be taken away from their game and their team. So in that era, you weren't going to please everybody, but so you tried to please most in this era, of course you can please everybody because everyone can find their game itself somewhere where it's on. Right. Well, and the problem. I mean, if that system was going on now, okay, so you can have a one seed playing a 16 seed and the one seat is up by 30 and CBS wants to switch out of it to get you to a more competitive matchup. But if the spread is 31 to 32, people don't want you to switch out of it. So I think the sports gambling today is, you know, if that system was still in place, that's where you'd have a lot of angry people coming into the mix. Well, you're right. Because back then, you didn't, as recently as that seems to be, you still didn't have the tools to be able to keep up with what's going on. Now you can just look on your phone. And keep up with the team that's going on. The thing that we always left at wasn't a laughing matter to the people involved though, Kentucky is a prime example. Kentucky could be leading by 50 points with a minute to play in the game. Don't you dare take their video. They are sound away from their game and switch it somewhere else. We'd get up. It was Helen wheels. So this is your 24th season as the studio host for CBS. The way it set up today, what's the biggest challenge for you or most difficult aspect of doing the tournament? I think keeping up with everything that's happening at a time, especially those first two days of the tournament where there are 16 games on Thursday in 16 on Friday. And of course, towards the end of the evening, you kind of just start getting used to who's who and what teams and then 24 hours later it's entirely different names and numbers and uniforms and everything else. But it's a matter of keeping up and look, it gets to be a little chaotic at times because you want you to do an update here and then quickly do this update over here and I remember one time years ago, multiple cards and notes and papers in my hand and it's a voice-over and I said, let's get you back to Indianapolis and then our producer Eric Mann in my ear says great. We don't have any games in Indianapolis. It's a few year way through. I think everybody recognizes at least in our business they recognize the chaotic nature of it. The fans, all they want is the good clean feed of what they want to see. And back in the old days, what they wanted to see wasn't always what they got. And then on top of the chaos, you have to deal with Charles Barkley now. Well, give me, how has it been for you when we talked about CBS teamed up with Turner to present the tournament and then.

What excites you about Justin Fields and the bears Right now, I think for for the Bears on and for for a lot of people, it's not just Justin Fields. It's uh, when any team that picks up a youngster coming out of college, the Jets with Zach Wilson and Triple Lawrence in Jacksonville, you're excited to see if the potential that you have witnessed on film and in game action transfers. To the National Football League that you know the talent is there, but that's never a guarantee that that someone's going to make it and they're in. You know, John as well as I do. The reverse is always tricked out. Brady was 1/6 Round draft choice. Come on. You know, that is in retrospect crazy, but it's a fact so and you always know. Remember Ryan Leaf Ryan Leaf was the number two draft pick overall. He had a strong strong arm, but as far as accuracy or mob. What was that was his name LaMarcus Other. The Raiders picked JaMarcus Russell JaMarcus Russell could stand in front of a barn 25 yards away and still not hit the bar. I went into town. I met in town one day and I was looking at the statistics prior to a game with him, and his completion percentage is below 55% of the order you nuts. How are you gonna Are you gonna win football games, completing less than 55%. Even even guys who were losing football games are averaging 60 65% completion. So, so it's so it's so there's never a guarantee. But what I think that fans need to be excited about is that he has the potential, and he has the promise to do wonderful things on the football field, and I think it's going to be a thrill for fans and there's gonna be some losses and mistakes along the way. And, you know shame on us if that takes you by surprise, and you get describable by that, because it happens with everyone. The people are going to watch, and I think they're going to be pleased by his abilities and hopefully for the Chicago area. They'll see an improvement in their team and then and then promise for the future. What's your number? One concern about the Bears right now. Oh, I don't know. I I like their coach. Um, I'd like I'd like their team any time. I've had a chance to do them in the last couple of years. Um, you know, I think the number one Concern is to continue to build on past. You know, Here's the Here's the thing, too, You know they had They had some rough ups and ups and downs with Mitchell. True whiskey and and its stall the progress of the team, because when you make Draft pick, and they went out of their way to get Mitchell true Whiskey When you get a draft pick that high you wanted to work like The world. Is dependent on it and and and it doesn't always happen that way. And yet you don't want to bail on a guy too soon, but you don't want to over hype it anyway. And I think they went as far as they could. Um And that means continuing to build on the things that you've accomplished in the last couple of seasons. And from the Bears point of view. It's probably isn't there A lot of the fans say, Well, it's just it hasn't been that great, but I think that the progress that they've made there is significant and and and the the Problem they have now is how to work Justin Fields into the mix without taking a step backwards and he has to learn the Bears have to learn with him. But also they're gonna have Andy Dalton leading the way for a little while and trying to trying to continue to build on a record and teach this youngster at the same time. You like that signing? Well, you know, you had to do something because at that point they didn't know what they were going to do in the draft. They knew what they needed. They didn't know whether that they were going to get what they needed. And a guy like Andy Dalton in it, And I don't mean to denigrate it. Any dog is a fine quarterback. He has been a fine quarterback in the league. For for a long, long time. You just happened at the misfortune to play with the dreadful Cincinnati Bengals. And then the fact that that he was out there and available. I don't think that the Bears could afford to wait to see what was gonna happen with the draft. I think Andy Dalton would have gone to someone else. By the time the draft came around, and so I think they made the decision that they had to make, and I don't think it's a bad decision at all. Greg Gumbel here on Sports Talk Chicago. Greg, What's wrong with baseball right now? Oh, you mean other than double header games going on Lee seven innings or or or extra inning, starting with a man on second basement. It's absolutely ridiculous. It's just stupid. Absolutely stupid. It's not the same game that I grew up knowing and loving the very fact that But that they have these these But Thomas is the dumbest thing is the warnings to both benches whenever there are pictures that are too close to the hitter. Another done. Another thing is what will the player that the catcher is really not allowed to block home plate? Why would that be unfair? You know, there's no more. There's no more trying to take out a short stop at second base to avoid it, You know, T eliminated double play..

I'm well, It is great to hear your voice. Take me back in time to the days of a little Eric Davis running around, Maybe on the playground Who was playing baseball? What? What Got you interested in baseball? What did you love about the game as a kid? Well, uh, actually, number one. Uh, it was It was a gang that my grandfather paid. It was dream and my dad created came that my uncle's played all of the black men in my life. Um Play baseball, and that was the thing to do. That was our favorite past time going all the way back to celebrate. That's what stickball came to. So having said that Uh, it was always a part of me. And regardless of whether you had nine guys or or three guys two guys, uh, you just wanted to swing the bat. That was the ultimate, uh, competitive game was Can I hit this round ball with this round back, and I've just gravitated to it. And the more credit tomorrow Love We all grew up with favorite players. We mimic their batting stances. Did you have AH, Favorite player Growing up my favorite family? Well. Fraser of the New York Knicks was a big basketball fan and It was great for me because in 87, I had a chance to go on. Good morning America with Bryant Gumbel and Walt Frazier was there because I I Ward number 10 as a child on the way up through high school. I had my Afro, my kid. My sideburns couldn't get the way he is. But I tried like hell to get my Firebird, but he was that he was the first player That it was black or white, but he was the first player that I saw. That war, his athleticism on his flea. I mean, because you know he worked the he had to have to coach. He had the Rose voices He had all of and that was his swag. And that's why they called him, Clyde. So that's what I gravitated to, But from a baseball standpoint, I could do anybody I was Pete Rose. I was wondering where I was really amazed. I get all of that. And a zoo kid. We didn't have the instruments that we have today. I couldn't see Willie play or or go to Google it and find his his highlights and things of that nature. That's when Tony Kyu BEC and Joe Guys, we all know what the game The week was so inspirational because you've got a chance to see the highlights. And here the, uh, the legs and kind of put a face to that. So once I started to be a part of that Then I started to flap my wings like Joe and I did a lot of the thing that most kids wanted to do in the sixties and seventies. Eric what's what's changed over the years? How was how were other sports being basketball or football or soccer? Able to chip away at the game of baseball in and grab kids to their sports, and and what? What should be drawing? Kids to baseball these days? Well, the excitement of How the fans view the sport. If you talk about basketball, and you talk about baseball, uh, it's a difference in the dynamic of the fans who would turn basketball games. The black fans that train baseball games, even at my high school, even in high school, we would sell out the gym for that. The barbell. We get eight people for baseball, so historically, it was never something that was attractive. You didn't walk around in your baseball pants. And in spite that the mall's hard to be cool off the diamond with baseball here on and then when, once you started to have a few tournaments and the way the MBA and the NFL marketed the game It became a fashionable stat for the black Youth of America and then hip hop transcended into when the jerseys and doing different things and so the kids could resonate with that. It was cool and then for you to play basketball, and then you get a Free pair deters horse, Nike the sudden he wanted to be a part of that. So the cultural organization behind The youth was not marketed with baseball. It was marketed with basketball and football. So the athlete He's still there. He's still being gold. He's being grown to a certain level in baseball. And then once you get a certain age, basketball or football takes over and when you don't have that male figure in your life It is hard for that mother to to raise three boys, and I'm just using that everything and to work two jobs to put food on the table and then try to figure out which one to get my kids in school baseball historic. It was not a D one sport where they was. Bringing black kids to college to plays a most like it when the college either they walked on their parents paid for something. So it was easier for them to say you got a favorite sport in order to get an education or to further your education, basketball or football added that baseball didn Even today. If you look at college basketball in college baseball is predominantly back. If you look at college baseball outside of the swagger, HDC used predominantly white I think there's clearly some young guys today in the game who can carry the torch of the game that Fernando to teach juniors and and you've been around one who's on the minor league level with the Reds? Hunter Green, who seems to really get it and have a passion for giving back to his community, and then the baseball community. Give me your impressions of your time around Hunter Green. Oh, honey phenomenon. 100 is one of those red kids that you see that ahead of their time and just not citizen toe. But Miss Lee, how he views the world. His parents did a phenomenal job of him. Even as a high school stud. He wasn't a third and stuff. When he could have easily been that, But he wasn't brought up with those type of mannerisms. And he cares about people, not the state of other kids, Don't but he goes out of his way. To make sure that he's a role model for kids, even though he's still a baby yourself and for him to have that intuition about how he wants to be remembered now. That after he made a whole lot of money and want to Cy Young and won a World Series and all that kind of stuff, how he wants to remember He's taking that bull by the horn at the young age, and he's building his resume, as well as building other kids up to either follow him or even even go side by side with him.

As Bryant Gumbel rightfully points out. They would have never have done that with another troubled member of Augusta. No, but because it was Tiger They felt the need to publicly They called it a public whipping and Bryant Gumbel using more colorful language was like Look, Tiger deserved it from his mom. Tiger deserved it from his wife. Tiger deserved it from his partners. But who? That to Bryant Gumbel saying this? Who the hell are you? Who the hell are you? Dude from Augusta to be publicly published publicly admonishing Tiger Woods. When, as Colin and I said, when they show this group of Ah, Augusta members, I'm thinking to myself you hypocritical because you know, there are members of that organization that have probably cheated on their wives done worse than Tiger and just don't have the notoriety. Tol have it be public. And that out of everything. I was so angry. And then Bryant Gumbel put words to my anger immediately. I just found it. Gross. I just found it. He's a machine. And that's really what kind of does this this documentary it humanizes him. In a way that I don't think has ever been explored in that way. But then then to turn around and Yeah, to take off course.

You know, it was really like This whole phenomenon that I That whenever a celebrity cheats on their spouse Listen, there's I'm not saying that that it's right. But the public treats it like they've murdered someone. I mean, that's the level of like verity and on social media, and just like you write them off. It's like a non person and they don't exist in like, you know, people make mistakes, but but I hate it that it's always that level. Of like that. They've done something that is in equal to something like, you know, assaulting or murdering someone. It's just that should be a private thing between. Thank you, your wife into it again, your kids.

The Legend of Coach O
"Why this much emotion coach such a big game? They beat US eight years. I got tired of your no so I mean it was time I told the team tonight. We taught allied. If you follow college football you probably know that voice. He belongs to a guy who's loud road tough in might be more suited for his job than anyone in America. LSU head coach at Oberlin today ahead of Monday's national championship game against Clemson. We tell the story of a man who seems like he was built in a lab to coach football in Louisiana and why despite that. It's actually surprising that he ended up there at all times. It's Friday January tenth this is espn daily presented by Dell Small Business David. How's it going is going quite it will mean a thank you for having me David Hale writes about college football for ESPN so your story is about coach? Ed Osea Ron really the legend coach. But I want to start by talking to you about perhaps his most noteworthy characteristic which is of course his boy to get to where you wanna go see like you have to go undefeated you have to beat Alabama you have to keep on going and then you have to win Sec Championship then you got football playoff oilfield so if you start thinking about my favorite thing in the World David is being in a room and watching someone here at for the first time because because it really never fails to shock. Anyone who's hearing we knew was going to win that game. Today we started Monday. NO-GO windows gape go. Don't you want to write his autobiography. Just so he can also do the voice over work. What's on the menu at the odor on household today? What are we got cocoa? My mom made a special gumbel but it was on. We'd better win the game. It would just be so wonderful. One of his first jobs was at Arkansas. As assistant strength coach the players there thought he was pranking them they. They didn't think that anyone actually talks that way. And they couldn't make heads or tails of what he was saying. Either it was. He's just he would get excited and start saying things with this gravelly Cajun accent and then he pointing the direction and they would just go do whatever was in that direction because they had no idea what he he was saying but he was saying it loud enough that they were afraid of him and it was only after like he'd been on the job for a month or two that they were like. Well I you know he's kept us up a long time. I guess that is his voice. We love the voice. Everyone does now but it at times says constant now. Yeah he's coached in some places that are not Louisiana. Yeah everybody talks about how he is Phyllis you but he was in Miami he was in Syracuse. He was in USC and and his last stint in USC he came on to replace place Lane Kiffin as the interim coach there had some success at USC. And I think there were folks there who would have loved to have given him the fulltime job because he had that success. But there were also folks Has Been reported by numerous folks I think including Bruce Feldman that the voice was one of the reasons you couldn't hire him as US's sees coach because you're the voice of the program. You're the face of the program you're the identity of the program and that's not USC right that's not La. Look at how he talks. He's not the model of USC so we can't hire them and there's a lot of folks at USC or probably kicking themselves for that exact thought process now. Well the voice is a perfect fit for Lsu else you I mean just about everything about co is a perfect fit for Lsu. It's almost like if you reverse engineered a coach based on Louisiana Anna Football. It would look sound and act like him and he's got roots right. In the state of Louisiana. He is from the Food Perish. It's bio country. Outside of New Orleans. His Dad grew bon shrimp boats ways just every bit the sort of central casting version of what we think of as Louisiana. You know if you've watched waterboy you kind of have a rough idea of what I think it owes runs. Background is one of the great anecdotes that his mom gave me. Okay so he was in second grade and broke his leg and the doctor fitted him for a cast. It went from foot all the way up to the upper thigh and he picked up some trudges out there and play football on crutches and about every week or so she would have to drag him back into the doctor's office to get fitted for a new cast because he would get it so dirty and muddy and mucked up from playing football in a full leg. CAST I'm sorry they let a second grader. Played football. I don't know that even let is the proper word there so much as he just went and did it So he kept playing in high school then college got to high school and he was a full grown man from day one one and he was a big guy and went to college as a defensive. LINEMAN ended up at Lsu for a year and hated it because for the first time in his life football ball was hard he was not having immediate success. He was not playing routinely He was being forced to go to classes. He wasn't super eager to go to and and he left. Lsu went back home and thought maybe that's the end of college football. And I'll go get a real by job like my dad and I'll go work on a shrimp boat and turns out. You may be surprised to learn that working on a shrimp boat is much less fun than in football And so I think that was you know when you talk to his mom that summer after he left. Lsu went back home to work. Real jobs was was a lot of ways sort of a turning point for coach. Oh and that he got a taste of what life is like when everything is not being handed to you to. How did he end back in football? He decided he needed to go play football again which meant he had to go back to college which was not really his favorite thing but he decided to go to northwest Louisiana State. That's where he finished his career and then went looking for football coaching jobs and the first job he could find was as a strength coach and soccer. Yeah shocker this. Like three hundred pound beast of a man finds a strength coaching job. And the job. Java's with Arkansas. Ken Hatfield to coach the time Ed walks in. And he's this beast of a man and he's got that voice and he's so excited and he's like I don't know if he can do this job but he sure looks the Bart's so we're going to hire them and tell you ended up getting into coaching. He worked at Arkansas for a little while and I think he really wanted to to do something. More than being the strength coach the ends up landing miraculously enough at the absolute heart of college football in the nineteen eighty s and early nineteen ninety S. Which is at the University of Miami? They celebrate a Miami the Hurricanes Complain and the coaching on the same staff. Tommytucker Ville tougher telling me they were. They went down to Key West on vacation. You want one year and they're in like this Nice restaurant having dinner and get the talking about football technique and overrun so excited about it. He likes slides tables out of the way and gets down the three point stance and he's trying to explain technique to to top Ville and he's like pushing tables and chairs out of the way and like diners are just looking over gawking. At what the heck is is this man doing your. But that's just sort of the approach that he brought and I think his time at Miami really offered him an opportunity to prove that ed behind that bluster and the Raspy gravelly cage invoice that there is a guy who really knows a heck of a lot about football. How did it go for him? In Miami off the field not great. He was someone who went out a lot. Drank drank a lot and the things that you could get away with when you're twenty northwestern Louisiana you don't get away with as a coach on the staff of one of the premier programs grams in college football. And so you know the story that really I think ended up up ending his career involved him being a bar. T was thrown out of the bar for being too intoxicated and he was not happy with that and ended up getting into a fight and legal proceedings. Happened in that essentially was the end of his time in Miami but I think it was also sort of a wakeup call for him so when he gets away from football ball it was a lot of ways probably very much like when he went back to work the shrimp boats after leaving. LSU Is that he kind of realized. This isn't the life that I want. This isn't who I WANNA be. I don't think that he shies away from those. Oh stories now. He's still shares them with current players in in the way of trying to relate to them and going through it and a lot of ways has probably been in what pushed him to turn things around and become the person that he is.
Rams-Saints: Marcus Peters vs. Sean Payton 'gumbo' beef history
"As long as talking about guys that don't seem to Cernan at all. Let's go to Marcus Peters. Your boy Rams cornerback who got into a nice little beat the Sean Payton during the regular season Peyton publicly talked about how he wanted. Michael Thomas stuff feast on Peters and Peter shop that quote, keep talking. We'll have a nice little bowl of Gumbo. Close. Quote. Peter's followed up this week with more Gumbel talk. But deleted that Tony Peters. Gutless Lee now blames everything on the media, but you're not buying. He's given up this grudge against painting the saints. Are you people don't give up grudges trust me? I know you have known me for forty years, and you know, the people I hated that. I know thirty five grudges you have kept these you want to keep these Rudge's. No, you don't the most significant thing in. All of this to me is that the Rams are not putting Peters on Michael, Tom. Well, putting the came to leave on my play that I so okay because they don't want feast time. So that that to me is significant you can't drop the grudge. You have to hate took a coach who talks smack to you. If you're a player in your prime. You have to coach I don't care if the coaches only. It only. Took him down him down. And if you're Peters you have to want to either lay Michael Thomas out at some point during that, I'll tell you you're not gonna get the chance to the sideline situation as they say. I'm just interested to see if anybody if the if the Rams can't come up with a structure a scheme and the personnel employed in that to slow down Michael Thomas because that's the key to this
