Vin Scully Was Woven in the Fabric of the U.S.A.

"I think I can say with great confidence that this guy was the absolute greatest of all time. And more than that, Vin Scully was woven into the fabric of the USA. Once again, a standing ovation for Henry Aaron. Though the confrontation for the second time, Aaron walked in the second inning. He means the tying run at the plate now, though we'll see what downing does. Alice about delivers and his low ball one. And that just adds to the pressure. The crowd going, downing has to ignore the sound effect. And stay a professional in pitches game. One ball and no strikes, and waiting out for your deep and straight away, fast forward is a high 5 in the deep left center field, but they're both back to the city. That was Vin Scully, calling Hank aarons milestone milestone home run. When he passed Babe Ruth for the most career home runs with his 715th Homer, Vin Scully, the beloved voice of the Dodgers for 67 years. Passed away at the age of 94.

"And, uh, the fact that his roots we're talking about one of somebody even idea the greatest Major league baseball player of all time. That is roots of firmly entrenched in the Negro leagues. Starting as an 18 year old kid leaving Mobile Alabama to go join the Indianapolis clowns in 1952, as you mentioned Skinny, cross handed hitting shortstop. When Mr Allen's case, he was a right hand hitter who was hitting with his left hand on top. That, of course, is enough to doctor the fears that you break your wrist Sitting in that matter, Henry Aaron was not going to cover off the baseball in a highly unorthodox fashion when he gets to the clouds that good right hand on top. And the rest, As we say is history. So, yeah. So for so many who come to the museum, there's this wonderful, almost non descript photograph of him. Standing at the train station about to go leave to join the Indianapolis cloud. He must have weighed 100 and 50 £160 you know at that time, and he looks a little bit afraid. And yet there was also kind of look like okay, he's destined for greatness. You know, and he has a bag, a little duffle bag at his foot. And he told me says, Bob, I may have had Changes of clothes in that bag. Dollar 50 cents in my pocket and a ham sandwich that my mama had made me going to go chase that dream. It worked out pretty well for the happen. That's a great story. Bob Kendrick joins us this morning on the show, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City. How about the staff that Hank Air and you could take away all 755 of his home runs? You still have 3000 hits. I mean, how amazing of a baseball player and a hitter was Hank Aaron. Great here a great here too, And I think sometimes that gets often overlooked. Because of the home run. Actually, That's one of the most remarkable stats of all take all seven. Unfit five home. Other ways still has over. 3000 hits his total base record. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say we'll never be broken. His R B I record will likely never be broken. He was a great defensive outfielder. He didn't get his just due because he played the corner outfield and you know, so he didn't play center field like really Did Willie the great lily bass? Ondo. That's the glamour position, but he always made the right throw. He always prided himself on being a student of the game. Steady. Good game just did everything right. He could still bases. You could still the whole lot more bases. You know if you wanted to. The Braves really didn't want him to steal a whole bunch of bases on, so he just did everything great. He was just a model and a pillar of consistency. But his numbers will never truly define who Henry Aaron Woz. Henry Aaron just happen to be one of the greatest human beings that ever walked the face of dessert. We'll just have to be one of the greatest baseball player. You ever walked the face of this earth on so what? We look at Henry Aaron to civil rights icon. Henry Aaron to philanthropist, humanitarian Henry Aaron, who dedicated his life. To try and help those who have been marginalized in this country gain equality on and that's the Henry Aaron that you know I will remember. And it's also the Henry and that the kid from Georgia got a chance to share again. Ah, platter of Gates, barbecue ribs with them every time he saw me, and he and his wife would say You didn't bring me the real review. A great life lived. Hank Aaron, one of the greatest life's ever lived Hank Aaron, and one of the great things about the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is that the community and the city of Kansas City Completely embraces it. And Buck O'Neil So many people around the country Remember Buck and his smiling face part of the baseball documentary by Ken Burns, and he was such a face of the museum, but the museum has picked up steam every year and every decade. And you've seen that and you've been front and center for that. Patrick Mahomes recently is really adopted it as one of his own as well placed that he loves going to baseball teams come into town to play the Royals. They often times will go there. Football teams well coming into play the chief's what type of evolution has the museum gone through in recent years? It's been amazing. It really asked. I mean, you think about this local grassroots organization that started a tiny one room office in 1990. Historic 18 design, and Kansas City wants a very problem, prominent African American community during that era of segregation, But like a lot of communities it had died, and here comes little Negro Leagues Baseball Museum to not on Lee Come along to preserve and celebrating, educate this piece of baseball and Americana that few folks knew anything about, but also at the same time, try and resurrect. This wonderful community that had a kind of died and when we started Buck O'Neil and other local Negro leaders who were still with us at that time that say they passed on. There's not a single player left in Kansas City. They literally took turns paying the monthly rent to keep that little office open. And with it our hopes and dreams of one day building a facility that would pay rifle tribute to not only one of the great chapters in baseball history, but what now? Thousands and thousands of visitors each and every year..

Can we talk quickly about him is a ballplayer because he that those are things that sometimes I think, get for gotten because he became so much larger than that. But Hemo sent me a slew of numbers here mean Buster. Let's talk about Hank Aaron is a ballplayer, first and foremost. And incredibly well rounded player. Someone who you know was just the Metrodome of power in a year after year after year, hitting 40 homers, he actually you know, While building toward that record of 755, he never hit more than 47 homers in any season. But he also was a great defender, and he was a terrific base runner of you know, he helped the Braves when the world Syriza and 1957. I've always thought of Willie Mays being the greatest major leaguer. I think Hank there and it would be in the top three. You know you someone when you would see him in person in retirement, it reminded you this was you know, baseball's greatest slugger was not a large man, but he had these unbelievably strong and quick wrists and you would hear stories. From his peers from Bob Gibson from Sandy Cove, fax, others talking about how how dead dangerous it was the pitch him inside because of how quick those wrists were. He was a terrific all around player that came in part from batting cross handed when he was growing up, and when he played in the Negro leagues, and that helped produce incredible hand and wrist strength, and I can I can talk to two other quick things. As far as him as a player if you took away all 755 of his home runs He would still have 3000 hips, is the only member of the 500 home run club in baseball history. Who could say that and of him?

"Which days you thought about that impossible view for for Fran, Chester Martin Brennaman and his first game behind the Mike to call Henry Aaron 714th career home run. Let me give you a call or tie of sorts. With between Henry Aaron and the Reds, Dusty Baker. You may remember, I do this. This feature called 10 teammates and a hat where I left. My name's great stuff. It's a great segment, and so I could one with Dusty Baker and, you know she played forever and mounted. So there were a million names in this hat. He pulls out 10 names, and one of them is Henry up proceeds to tell the story of how he was an 18 year old kid and the Raves wanted to sign him. Um, his mom didn't want to decide Is Mom wanted Dusty Baker to go to college. So the Braves had Henry Aaron make the pitch to Dusty Baker's mom. For wise. He's inside a professional baseball contract. And not go to college, and Henry Aaron said that Dusty's mom, Listen, Listen, This is Baker. I will take care of him like he's my own son. I will make sure he goes to church. Make sure he goes to bed early. I'll get him up and make sure he hasn't breakfast. And that's what Henry Aaron did for 18 year old Dusty Baker when he started out his professional baseball career was on the field. With Henry, and when he hit that home run from the Braves, Dusty Baker, Dusty Baker was on deck. Dusty Baker was the on deck hitter when Henry Aaron hit number 7 15 and who was the young part second base that first designated it was a home run. That I don't know. You got me on that one. Let me give you a hint. He later died of Riverfront Stadium and home plate, Boy, I certainly remember that incident, but now I'm drawing a blank on the name of the Cherry Empire. Harry. That's right. He was the one to second base called it. And then what was 74? I think it was 1996. I'm like that. About 22. Years later, he died at home plate, and I'm thinking And then they had the big ceremony on you might be too young to recall if you're a young man, but in 1974, they stopped the game outcome. Bowie Kuhn, who kind of order that he playing the game. There was Pete Rose, Johnny Bench Henry Aaron, Tony Perez, Joe Morgan, Dusty Baker all there, and they did some sort of ceremony on the field. And Henry said, you know, kept saying, Look, let's play baseball her and then enough for this and the guy who was over this 3 74 Mark and left Center field. Sitting in the third row with a glove in his hand at the age of 12 was Brian Combs. How about that? Brian comes got the tickets the day before from Bob Braun, who was doing a TV show broadcast it. Also here he went on is a 12 year old boy dressed his Mr Red with a big job he's gonna bring in the photo and Bob Brown said here, young man. Here's two tickets to Mars game. It was in the Philly Market Parade, and Brian comes watch the ball fall more less at his feet. Picked up by an UMP picked up by a cop in his first year name. Police officer Clarence Williams of CPM because he was a rookie cop. He was the guy in between the wall and the frame of Riverfront Stadium is like 6 ft. Separation and and he was like he was like in an alley and he heard a ball was hit. He heard the yelling. Had no idea what was going on. He couldn't see He was like in the vice and and the ball came over the first wall, hit the second wall, then bounce back to hit the wall that 3 74 Mark and the ball landed at his feet and he picked it up. S. O'Brien comes looking down at Officer Clarence Williams with the baseball She probably gave back to Henry own car. I see did yeah, a certain famous Plum house man. Send someone out the left center field to see if they could find the ball and the cop in uniform is holding the ball. And said, Would you give that back to you so sure. I'm on duty out. You can have it and the ball is now on now in Cooperstown. Did. Officer Williams get anything exchange? Did they give him a base? Yes, they did. Thank you. Henry. Aaron signed some things and gave it to the police officer. And the rest, shall we say is history. Nice. You know, I have a brother named Mark is actually my stepbrother. So we had different parents given Grandparent's his grandfather gave him an autographed baseball signed by Henry Aaron. Which he had displayed. We shared a bedroom, his kids, so he had it displayed in our bedroom. And then one day we were out playing catcher playing baseball in the neighborhood and we lost the ball. No. My brother ran upstairs into our bedroom. He grabbed the autographed Henry Aaron baseball, and that's what we played with and you know, naturally ruined it. Well, what it would have been a very valuable piece of memorabilia. We stupidly you know, played catch and baseball with in the backyard, destroying it. You may recall 2 to 3 years ago, baseball designated the four living greatest baseball players of all time and an All Star game. They were Henry Aaron, Willie Mays, Johnny Bench and Sandy Koufax Co fax at a baseball scholarship to you See Johnny Bench played here is 17 year career. And Henry Aaron had all these marks and milestones in Cincinnati. The only one that wouldn't connected us was really amazed. So the four greatest that ever lived. Three of the four have great connections to Cincinnati, and one might say, Pete Rose would have been on that list somewhere. But of course, he's been more less banished from baseball and that Zorro NPI roast, so no matter what happens down hard There's a Cincinnati connection, everything. Everything in the world ultimately gets tied to the Queen City. I know last night. You ready for the big question? I am. The Mount Rushmore of you See Bear cat basketball. All men off. Say all men. Yeah, we're gonna have four Mount Rushmore. You see men's basketball Go. The Mount Rushmore. The top four Tripoli players. No coach is correct. Okay, well, the big O is obvious. Kenyon Martin..

"We'll break down the game and get you preface Sunday's NFC Championship game. Its target Sampa right here on news radio WTMJ. I'm excited about that all this morning. We've been talking about the incredible career and legacy of Henry, Hank Aaron. Obviously, Braves brewers Just all around gentlemen, and a great human being. Joining us now is Brewer's TV announcer Brian Anderson. Good morning, Brian. Hey, Good morning, A sad day, A sad week for Wisconsin sports fans, But I wanted to just I've been talking to your beat writer. Time. Hard, hard record and others about the legacy of Henry Aaron. What is Henry Aaron? Meaning in your life and the things that you do when it comes to sports? How does he play into that? Well, I mean, it was. He's an icon for one. It's um you know, Milwaukee obviously had a beautiful window of his career that they were able to Claim him as one of their own. And you know, the 57 World Series Championship team back to back world Syriza. Um, for me. He's The I would say the number three most important player in baseball history. I think Jackie Robinson's first I think Babe Ruth the second and then I think Henry Aaron. His third, So he's an icon on the sport. Um what he went through, You know, I was very fortunate Tonto. Meet him and spend some time with him and Get to know him. I think when I was a kid, I must have written a book report on him about every year. That's right. Hank Aaron. Jackie Robinson on Gale Sayers were my those are my go to book reports, you know, from From first grade up till seventh or eighth grade. So Yeah, I mean, you did. Baseball stuff speaks for itself. The longevity the career, Um It'll never be matched. You know, I still believe he's the authentic home run king, but You know what he endured? You can't tell Hank Aaron story without I'm talking about his place in history, especially in the civil rights movement and post civil rights movement when he was dealing with the same kind of threats and was having to perform in his job under the same kind of pressure that MLK have to deal with and he's trying to play a baseball game and you really can't Talk about Hank Aaron and his grace and the man that he is without recognizing what he endured and what, what he went through. Just even be able to perform the game, which is hard enough, but to do it with all of that stresses he was pursuing. Babe Ruth's record, So it's a huge loss and just Great man. Just a few weeks ago, he you know he publicly received the vaccine because he wanted that's right. Others to know that it's it's safe and he wants. He always had that in his mind. Like I'm going to be an example. I'm gonna be an example by my actions and almost up to his dying day. He was like that. You know, one of the things I love the word opportunity, And I think Henry Hank Aaron used opportunity to do and say things about what he experienced as part of his legacy, and that that will live forever. But I also was talking early with a guest and I used the term recency bias and we're all guilty of it in sports. The current players are better or whatever versus the older players, and when someone passes away, it's a chance. I think for networks and stations to tell the story of Henry Aaron, not just the sports stuff, which is amazing. On its own merit. But the stories that you were just referring to dealing with racism, incredibly sad stories that let's be honest, weren't that long ago. Mm. No and one of the images that comes to mind and I never had the courage to ask you about it. I wasn't sure if it was ever appropriate. When you know the occasions I had to be with him, but One of the images that always struck me and still to this day. I think about a lot was the scene as he's rounding second base after he hit 7 15. Um, While he's playing for Atlanta, 1974. He's rounding second base, and then these two white guys come running on the field, and I think we look at that video and like, Oh, you know they weren't that great. But at that moment Imagine what had to be going through his mind. Imagine what his mother who was in the stands and his father. When they see him hit the home run. He's rounding the bases, and here come these two guys, young guys, why guys running across the field? Because the context of that is leading up to that member. There was an entire off season. Um, that he was one away, so he finished the year he didn't get to the record. He had to go through an entire off season. 73 to 74 then tied the mark on the road and Cincinnati. And then broke it shortly thereafter in Atlanta, But remember like who had entire off season and he shared this later on, shared a number of the letters and used to talk about this with his former teammates. And you know, Bob, you cur. Tells the story. Well about You know the death threats he got and just the anxiety every day of thinking that People were actually going to be pulling this off. He didn't have a security detail. They didn't call in the National Guard for Hank Aaron. He's just living his life sitting on the cusp of this record. For an entire off season. And getting all of these threats, and then it's just building and building and then he finally does it and he's rounding second base and these two guys come running on the field. Now, these guys they just wanted to love on him like they just wanted. Be a part of it. They have no ill will intended, but he certainly wouldn't have known that. And his parents certainly would have known that I think about that image of them and everybody else all the security who were there and you know our late friend Craig Sager was actually reporter. In that moment. I met him at the on deck circle when he came back in On..

"Yeah, Here's the pitch by downing swinging. There's a drive in the left center field. That ball is gonna pay outta here. It's gone. Home run champion of all time on it's Henry Aaron. Works. They're going. Henry Aaron is coming around third, his teammates right home plate and listen to this crowd. One of the greatest moments in the history of the game. Hank Aaron passing Babe Ruth as the all time home run King. And then, of course, Aaron would go on to break the all time record for home runs. But if that's all you think about when you think about Hank Aaron, you are missing out there was so much more to Aaron than that. He's the all time leader and runs batted in the all time leader in extra base hits the all time leader in total bases. He's fourth and run, scored third and hits Nothing about that. The man who was known for home runs is third all time and hits Pirro's Ty Cobb and then Hank Aaron. 20 time. All Star. Three time Gold Glove winner, A two time batting champ off first ballot Hall Famer. I mean, similar to Wayne Gretzky and that it's easy to forget just how good he was at everything. Is Ernie Johnson said quote. There's always been a great comparison between William Mays and Hank Aaron. I think a Los Angeles writer said it best when we were playing out there and the guy wrote quote Hank Aaron does everything that Willie Mays does. But his cap doesn't fall off. End quote. Now, if Hank if all he did was rack up crazy stats. That would be an amazing impact. But he was also again so much more than that. He came into the league seven years after Jackie Robinson. And when the Braves moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta before the 1966 season, he transformed the entire city. As the iconic Andrew Young told Terence Moore quote. His coming here opened up the town significantly. That actually was then Mayor Ivan Allen's plan that Big League sports would bring a big league attitude to the city of Atlanta and was right about that time that we started the campaign of the city too busy to hate. So I've always said that Hank Aaron made a contribution to the successful desegregation of Atlanta. He did so very quietly and very effectively and quote. Again. Think about that for a minute. Everything that he did on the field was amazing, but his impact in desegregating Atlanta was so much bigger. And that doesn't mean that it came easily right it sure as hell did not come easily. He received countless graphic specific and vile death threats over the course of his career, and especially as he approached Babe Ruth's record. According to Terrence Moore, he kept the worst of the worst in his addict. Dusty Baker's friend told Mork quote. Since I was so close to Hank, I had to look a lot of that stuff. It was terrible, but he was still carrying himself with honor and dignity. He treated white kids and Latin kids as well as he did the black kids. He treated everybody good, regardless and quote. Like there are no words that could do justice today. Hate that he received And the way that he dealt with it, just like there are no words that can really sum up. What he meant to the game is a player into this entire country is a person you're going to hear quite a bit about Hank Aaron over the next few days. And I'm going to bet that even the biggest Hank Aaron, fans are going to learn something new. Maybe something about his career. Maybe it's something about his life. Maybe it's something about his impact on civil rights and the fight for equality. I guarantee I guarantee in the ensuing days, you will learn something about him that you did not already know. Because that's just how big he woz how great he was and how many different areas of American life that he impacted. The fact of the matter is there's no way I could personally Foy do justice to him in this space. I would say this. If you haven't already I would suggest you read Howard Brian's book, The Last Hero, A Life of Henry Aaron do that. And then you learn so much more about Aaron, the man and his role in baseball, his role in society and how he felt about that, because it wasn't simple and it definitely was not always comfortable. Aaron was one of the greatest baseball players to ever walk the Earth but is, he told The Atlanta Journal Constitution back in those six quote, I would just want to be remembered. Somebody who tried to be fair with people. It certainly was that And so much more. So I had to start a Friday with a really sad don't like that. Lot. Hank Aaron has passed 1 806 368686. You're more than welcome to share your thoughts as well. Those are mine. In addition to that It's a big big sports weekend NFC Championship Game A F C championship game, Connor McGregor making his triumphant return of the cage. The big head James Kelly, making his triumphant return to the jungle like he does every single Friday. Has been taking some now. I think he's gonna get right. This is his get right weekend. Also in the NFL. I want to talk about Dan Campbell. So yesterday we got into it pretty flee and was only based on one sound bite that I'd seen now that I've seen the entire presser. I'm not going to say that my opinions changed dramatically. But to a certain extent, I'm still not exactly sure what I was watching with this guy yesterday. You know the next Vince Lombardi or the next Hannibal Lecter? That was a weird presser. Weird is normally good. That was just weird. Might be good. Scott might be a great coach, and then again, he might not be. I know this. That pressure will stick to him No matter what. Then you've got the case of Eric. Be enemy. Like the enemy. That's another job that he missed out on. He missed out on the Philadelphia Eagles job Now we went to the Texans deal. The enemy was actually talking about it openly yesterday, and then somebody else came to his defense. Alex Smith. Also an update on Gronk. Tom Brady hasn't used Gronk is much I thought that he might. But then again, Brady's got so many different weapons..

"Obviously, when your first game as a big league announcer In his very first game is, you know Marty Brennaman made this historic call that ball of God believe Henry Aaron has just tied rose home run record of 714 days with a cloud over the 3 75 marker in left field. And then, of course on 37 16, and you know the rest. But that was Marty's first game and there to witness history is as Hank Aaron Henry Aaron tied Babe Ruth's record. Go on to beat that obviously, too. On, You know, that's what remember from baseball fan's perspective here in Cincinnati. Um, but you know, it was a social movement before social justice is the thing he was fighting for this and the one I'll leave you this comment as remember the passing Hank Aaron Day. So he tells this story back in the early 19 fifties, and then he was playing for the Indianapolis clowns of the Negro League. And they were having an office, a rain delay or whatever it might be. He was in a restaurant behind the stadium there in Indy. And they were having breakfast as a teen. And as they waited for the rain to stop, so they go to the ballpark and get ready for the game that afternoon, they heard. Plates breaking in a kitchen. And he said that was the worst sound I've ever heard in my life. I still even those later years can can remember in my mind that sound of breaking glass and even when he heard things break throughout his life to make him cringe because what they were doing then in the early 19 fifties in that restaurant Is that in and I think they're in D. C at the time As a matter of fact, so here they are in Washington. Land of the free home of the brave. And they were destroying the plates. They were actually breaking the plates. That had touched the forks. The forks that had been in the mouths of black men. He said that if dogs have eaten off those plates over Washington used them, but because they were black, they actually physically destroyed the plates. That Henry Aaron and his teammates eight on on that day. Has someone who wasn't alive back then. In being relatively older now. Can't even fathom that I can't even Can't even get my mind around that thinking. So, Yeah, We've got a lot of stuff. A lot of things We have to do it make things fair. There's no doubt about it. There's issues of accountability as well. There's a lot of factors in this whole thing. Not making excuses. But going, you know, for those who believe, man. Things haven't gotten better. Well, I mean, Just think about that. I, You know, it's so foreign and so disgusting to me personally. But I can't even comprehend that that would have ever happened, right? You know, we talk about people who are deniers of history, for example. Deny that the Holocaust or 9, 11 are all these things that ever happened. You wonder why? Because it's um It's just so shocking and just so wait. What? No. Come on, man. It was in a movie. Now that that actually really happened. Hank Aaron, the Hall of Famer dead at the age of 86 today known and one of those rare people who are known much more more what they did, I think in their impact after playing baseball than they did on the field for Ah, Long career of 21 years anchor and dead today at the age of 86. Get a time out in and speaking of the issue of race. Well, here, here we go again because they're individuals who are going to make something racial that shouldn't be And we'll get to that. The difference between black and green just ahead. 700 wlw Friday morning,.

Giants need win, help to reach playoffs after loss to Padres

"There were 7 18 7 wins 18 losses against teams that were over 500. If you look at all the playoff teams there, eight wins 20 losses. How far can these Giants go? If they do get into the playoffs? And what are your thoughts against his three game Dodgers series? The first round if and when they get to l. A on Wednesday? Well, I don't know if anybody would pick the Giants to win that. I don't think it's it just it's just not not a reasonable way to think. I mean, the Dodgers were the best team in baseball there 25 games over 500 there one through nine with power hitters. They've got Kirsch on and bueller lined up. They got a bunch of right handed pitchers, you know, adjust in May and Johnson against the Giants, right handers. Stacks up really kind of comically. One sided, however, Marty, it's baseball, right? I mean, what's the point of serious when the first one, but if they be Kershaw behind behind God's man, I mean, you know, that's that's the great thing. They go in your record book? Look up. 1951 look of 1962. Yeah, and this is a you're going to write it. I hope it's Giants Dodgers. You'll write a great story that you will write an amazing story. About about how these teams have played before and how the Giants were written off before to the very last pitch, and they ended up winning and winning penance by doing it. So my feeling is Bruce. You got a lot of lefties. The Dodgers a lefty oriented. We've seen what Kershaw was done before. It's a baseball game. That's all it is. Anything can happen. Yeah, three runs in the first inning off. Kershaw is like, whoa, what's going on here? And all of a sudden, people say, Gee, we didn't see that coming. Yeah, and it's very I wouldn't say it's unique to baseball. But you know if you get an NFL Matchup kind of the best in the worst. He had a pretty good idea how it's going to come out or an MBA. The Lakers are playing a team that's you know, they can't win a game to save their life. If you had a fair idea, but the baseball and we've seen it so many times. You can just knock you on your own your song on your seat her off your seat. What's What is it? Something like that happens. It's the shock. That's it. Come on the Mets and the Orioles 1969. How about that? Yeah, the miracle Mets. They weren't supposed to get there. They weren't supposed to beat the Braves, then Henry Aaron, and they did. And then next next thing, you know, they win the whole thing. And you know Cleon Jones and Tommy and me and Tom Seaver and all of a sudden the team that have been so unbelievably bad. It's like, Wow, these guys are really good, and it turned out they They were very good for the for the next several years, But that was that was a miraculously kind of thing that you know it goes back to the miracle Braves, you know, back in 1919 14. That's correct, George Stone, the miracle Braves. Yeah. So The history of baseball. It's filled with great stuff like this and completely improbable development. So we will watch with great anticipation.

"By Ohioans for energy security. all right coming up after one o'clock is good friends Dave Lapham will be here to talk to break down the bangles and in a mall watching nine the game last night they came to me the I know many in football say but we don't need the four games previously six games the preseason football we don't need that I'm watching really a pre season game between the bears and the Packers that matter no it looks so bad. and because none of the NFL players stars when a risk tens of millions or billions of dollars of the value of the franchise is getting people hurt but it won't want the entire month of September be like a pre season game that's kind of how it's been over the last couple years why and and and inevitably somebody two or two or three weeks through all right the column or do the talk show topic about how the product isn't that good and then we get to late October November and the product is fine it is the pre season lucky you saw with the Bengals this year and I I like what they did because they protected themselves from a health standpoint as well as they possibly could we're not gonna play guys we're not going to we're barely gonna play Joe mix in the LA rams last year didn't play any of their primary offense of guys in the pre season and they hit the ground running they were the best team in the NFL I thought for the first six or seven weeks of the season Zack Taylor came from LA so he's employing similar strategies but you're saying that around the league right now you saw with Aaron Rodgers Aaron Rodgers did not take a snap in the preseason he certainly didn't look like mid season form Aaron Rodgers last night I think you have teams that are willing to kind of just get through that first month and hopefully you survive and round your team in the shape around your team in the form and work on things during games that count as opposed to doing it in games that don't count no question but the bank was if you had to pick one place not to play. in the National Football worst case scenario for Cincinnati about I'm in Seattle yeah I think that that's where we don't want to play and that's what they and their only a ten point dog which is amazing to me I don't bet you're probably maybe you and I were not a gambling dog you can apply this to the Seahawks and the eagles this week at Philly is getting ten against or is laying tight against Washington Seattle is laying nine and a half since nineteen eighty three the biggest underdog in week one is just twelve and twenty three. the biggest favorite my my apologies the biggest favorite in week one since nineteen eighty three is just twelve and twenty three twelve and twenty three so the odds are bringing in big numbers. for week one look up no this is this is a buzz saw I mean it's a bus offer a thousand different reasons number one a great quarterback the team that runs the ball exceptionally well the Seattle Seahawks ran the ball more than any team in their own building last year thirty five plus thirty five plus carries per game so they're gonna try to run the ball the Bengals run defense in recent seasons has been Porras what. defense of the offense of line well we'll talk about that in a second so you have that to begin with you have Russell Wilson against this group of bangles linebackers you have a bangles offense of line I I haven't seen any update on Cordy Glenn today but the office of one is to be generous a work in progress going into the loudest stadium in the league and by the way you don't have your best wide receiver. this is the the the absolute worst potential venue and maybe opponent you could ask the bangles to play under these circumstances in week one do you recall the first time your heart you're heard Marty Brenda hand I do well when was I don't I I do too I did to him was much much much much after you did you you heard of in seventy four April fourth yeah ugh for me it would have in the summer of eighty five where were you if anyone is in my grandparents breeze way in Taylorsville Kentucky. I'm not I I I do remember the fly do you remember that because I have a a weird memory I got Henry Aaron I got the home run to right yeah I don't remember the game I don't remember I remember specifically it was that they were on the west coast member the Reds in the National League west there on the west coast all the time like a Saturday afternoon the plan a four o'clock game my grandfather I wrote about this for the athletic back when Marty announced he was retiring my grandfather sitting there smoking his pipe my grandmother reading the newspaper and I'm listening to Marty and Joe I'll never forget that you know they did it when I don't number the dates but I'll never forget in the first inning of April the fourth Henry Aaron bow eek June said he had to play at least two of the three games you comes up it's a home run you know made the two adults after Henry Aaron hit the home run was dusty Baker one of them yes. the other would've been Davey Johnson bingo about the two Reds manager Bryan and Jack Billingham was on the mountain and that he calls I think one was a strikeout one was a ground ball but what are the odds of two Reds managers and Marty's first half inning and April fourth nineteen seventy four the last two Reds managers to make the postseason. or dusty Baker yeah and David Johnson so it's historical moments and I said this about a half an hour ago when he started he wasn't Marty Brennaman now when did you become already running it's I've been I've been thinking about that and. there's something I'm kind of working on run trying to get to the bottom of that I don't know but everybody has you know their list of favorite Marty calls maybe it's forty one ninety two maybe it's J. Bruce clinching in two thousand ten perhaps it's perfect game Tom Browning eighty eight but but for me what I like most about Marty is the six to one game in the eighth inning in the middle of July when he still entertaining. Lauren seasons like recent years were listening was still worth it because of the announcer. that to me it out great play by play announcers always rise to the occasion to me it's I would think and I don't know this first hand it's harder to rise to the occasion. when it's five to nothing on a on a random may Tuesday in the in the ninth inning to still be entertaining to still captivate your audience and I said this to you before we we came on there's a handful of broadcasters and and your one of them's a handful of broadcasters this is the litmus test for me when I'm in my car if you're in the middle of telling a story or offering an opinion or doing something that has my attention and I get to where I'm going and I say in my car or I run inside and find a radio or listening device so I can resume listening I've done that with Marty I'll never forget this I'm with my wife now and I we were living downtown we had a an apartment there was one girl for the entire apartment we ran out of a a propane I volunteered to take the tank put in the car drive over to Covington get it filled and as I'm driving back Marty is telling a story it was about something he did in Ashland Kentucky with his wife it's just it's not even a baseball story and I pull up and I've got the tank and I've got people waiting and I sat in my car through the getting break because I wanted to hear the end of the story. you know first hand how hard that is to do I can't do that most of us cannot do that hold the listener to the point where they stop everything they said in their driveway they sit in the garage at work and they they got here how the sense or they've got to hear the punchline they've got here the anecdote or they have to hear more there's never been anybody I've heard on the radio who has done that better than him and I'm not even talking about describing balls and strikes a play by play I'm talking about being an entertainer two three years ago I'm listening to Jason all dean mon CMT and he says what he yes I do I watch and listen ever wow CMT foxsports fox news get jealous a little bit okay but I also watch MSNBC on I read The New York Times. and he's asked the question in this with sticks to me about Marty Brennaman. good questions asked J. Jason Aldean why are you so popular why do you connect country music fans and he said I have no idea he's I'm watching the other night America's got talent and I'm watching two or three this country singers. so much better looking than I am they move better than I moving they saying five times better than I sang. and he said I don't know why but it's something called it that I have yet it isn't about singing well or a lyricist is not about how you dance or how you move something about it that is undefinable yeah you know when you see it but you can't say in nineteen seventy four Marty did not have it yeah buy a seventy six seventy seven seventy eight he headed and part of it was his skills an entertainer is not so much of relator what's happening on the field he is interesting to listen to because of the stories that tomatoes when Joe thirty one years yeah I think today with Brantley I I don't mean this in a negative way Brantley is as close to Joe Nuxhall is anyone on the final broadcast you really yeah I hope yeah the Reds understand that the Jeff Brantley is really good and I listen to that stuff at night I I go to bed with a Marty and Jeff Brantley and I go to sleep and many times it's the lawn in the morning because I want to hear Marty in Jeff from the west coast at one o'clock in the morning in that that whatever it is you can't describe it in and verbiage but you know it when you see it and Marty because of his connection to the greatest era Reds baseball because of Pete rose and Dave Pologne because of September sixteenth nineteen eighty eight because he's the touchstone to our youth yeah that's the but the main ingredient as he's got it and you know it you could turn Marty on tonight I'm assuming he's telling that the series this weekend you can tune you could turn on Marty tonight and never had listened to him before and you will know within two minutes. this guy's an all time great things like you mean you don't you don't need to listen to four five complete games of you know instantly not and and you know we talked about this on on our show the other day you know he offered an opinion the other night about the Reds not having their heart in it and he said something about wanting for all to all it does is give up home run balls I think the other part of this is you know they they still have this in Milwaukee with Bob euchre but this year a of the clearly identifiable play by play guy who had he was part celebrity obviously a large part descriptor of the action but but almost the face of the team Harry Carey body..

"You know, who you who you just have a different level of respect for the things that they accomplished on the field for in this case. And being Jackie Robinson day. You know on Monday things they had to deal. Deal with off the field. And I think as as you grow older, there's a greater appreciation for all of that. And you can never walk in his shoes or Robinson shoes. But the more and more detailed stories that we've been able to read and be exposed to over the years about the things that they had to endure. I mean, your your level of respect and appreciation for that combination of humanity humility and the ability to do what they did with a glove or a bat or their legs. I think it only grows when you're around him. There are certain people, regardless of political affiliation. When they walk into a room, speak e realized right away. Like, all I get it. I understand why that person has this massive ability to connect with people to appeal to people you'll see when you're around him. You'll realize he is. Is he is the beacon in the room, regardless of his physical condition. And you just wanna listen to everything he says because the wisdom that he's gained over all these years, the my interactions with him were or were earlier when bud Seelig relied on Henry, Aaron the way a brother relies on a brother. I mean, he was his guy in so many ways he would use the popularity and power of who Hank. Aaron was you know to his advantage. They were very remain. I'm sure very close friends, but he made sure Henry Aaron and all he accomplished especially in light of an I understand see leagues complicit nece in steroid era. But he he made it quite clear. There was a line of distinction. Once that was exposed that. This is the guy that we all should should recognize pay attention to honor respect and you'll see Monday, y he buy he and so many others. Feel that way. I it. It's base Paul royalty. That's what it is Carl. I would agree with you on that never really talked about this. But I always felt like for bud. Yes. It was business to protect himself wall himself off from the criticism and try to explain his own actions. But I also thought it was personal because of because of his friend Henry, no question. I mean, their relationship through the Milwaukee organization. Yeah. And perhaps you're perhaps Seelig desire to distance himself from the thing he was associated with. Instead, I'm going to associate myself and stand by my man, my man, it's almost as if they're a separate two separate entities. One is Commissioner of sport. And the other is is human being to to my guy here. And to who I who I am and Henry Aaron meant everything to, but she still does, and he was not afraid to you know, to to recognize and let everyone else know that that was what I. Most remember years and years ago about Henry iron when when there was there was Aaron and Seelig never failed to mention, you know, Henry Aaron you you're going to it's a thrill. I'm telling you. It's a thrill to sit and hopefully associated with him on Monday. That'll be great Paul indicate. He said something in the podcast earlier in the week. And I've thought a lot about it since then, and you know, what I totally agree with this take any he offered that Aaron beating babe. Ruth's record is the most significant record breaker in North American sports because of all the men at that time, you know, the fact that baseball had been segregated and in seven years after Jackie Robinson Aaron breaks into baseball. And he breaks roots record despite all the threats that he dealt with during that time just plugging along every year. It seemed back in the baseball card. Forty home runs forty hour, forty four it didn't matter. He just plowed along in the beginning of one thousand nine hundred ninety four hits number seven..
