Yeah, and what's interesting about this is, I mean, you see this and you hear this, and it's really no surprise. I mean, these are the same people that advocate for rioting, looting, committing arson in the name of social justice. And I mean, all of 2020, 2016 and on, they were calling for people to take to the streets. I mean, AOC after the roe V wade overturn is calling for people to take to the streets and that the court is not legitimate. These people have a history, okay? These people have a huge history of advocating and using violence against their political opponents. So it's no surprise to me that the same people that cry wolf all the time that, oh, there's a risk to our reality. There's a risk to our existence here because the right wingers are out there, the fascists are out there to kill us and get us. It's the same projecting. It's the same gaslighting. They literally do what they claim the other side is doing. And now they're taking it to the point. We all know this, Jack, what does swatting mean? It's getting people killed, okay?

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene 'Swatted' for Second Time in Two Days

"Got the message across the wire that. The MTG swatting. So we had our own yesterday for a first interview after she was swatted. She told us the harrowing tale. The fact that the police showed up with a tactical response and the fact that the caller to who took credit for the calls to credit for the swatting attempt called it a slotting attempt stated using computer generated voice that they were doing so because of her stance on trans children for attempt to ban trans procedures for people under 18 for children under 18 miners and that that was the reason they were targeting her like this. She was swatted again last night. The breaking news that we have is that, is that? Not only, obviously, that she's trying to ban the mutilation of minors and children in this country.

Jason Rantz Reacts to 'Swatting' of Marjorie Taylor Greene's Home

"Jason, welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. So first, before I get into that, you know, we had this major breaking story. We've got everything that's going on. Marjorie jelly green, can I just get your comment on that? The fact that we're now, we've now gotten to the point where they were trying to essentially S.W.A.T. a sitting member of Congress to potentially have them murdered assassinated, had all sorts of harm come to them because she is trying to ban the very procedures that you've been investigating. Yeah, I mean, swatting in a general sense is obviously incredibly dangerous. It puts the people's lives at risk when officers are being sent to any home, whether it's specifically the allegations in this particular case or anywhere else. You've got officers who are on guard. They can't assume that it's a swatting call. So they have to assume that there's potentially a threat there. And that, of course, brings up the tension even higher. If this happened to a Democrat, this would be a leading story, absolutely everywhere. And it would be about the white supremacists and the mega terrorists who were behind this, but because it's happening to Marjorie Taylor Greene, they're kind of giving it a pass. And of course, we know how the media generally operates in this world, and I would think that regardless as to how any individual feels about any member of Congress. We should be condemning this and we should be investigating this. If this happened to AOC, every single conservative should call it out.

"hernandez" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney

"Already buster bleacher tweets for a Tuesday T Jones is up first at T and J 6 two 9 T Jones writes and buster does losing two of three in Baltimore over the weekend foreshadow a tough year in The Bronx or is that just baseball Susan? I think you can draw something out of it. Look, in the Yankees playing against the Orioles, there is a special type of pressure, it feels like for any team playing Baltimore, you know, calling bikinis, talked about that last week. About how the Orioles will effectively potentially determine the winner of the American League. And the Yankees last year, I don't want to use the word struggle because they took what 12 to 7 or 12 out of 19 or 11 out of 19. But it turned out to be the difference in the division because Tampa Bay won 18 out of 19. And when you look at the lineups, it's kind of mind boggling. Wouldn't you say Taylor? Absolutely. It makes me think, I think I put a rundown last night. Do the Yankees have an Orioles problem. I feel like that's gonna be on sports talk radio. They do today. Yeah, they're lined up definitely feel stagnant early in the year. That's for sure. Billy flanagan at Billy Flynn is up next. He writes, and how many games at bats innings pitched or whatever can we stop saying, it's a small sample size. It's too early to tell. We praise the players that start out hot, but give a pass to the players that play poorly to start a season. Well, Billy, we can make a decision as reporters and fans, how much we want to react to, you know, last week we had a lot of fun with Stephen Kwan and his great start to the season, for example, for the guardians. I will tell you front offices kind of look at it as, you know what, we need to see about a week. Excuse me, about a month to 6 weeks of action before we start to determine actions on teens, rosters, lineups, players, that sort of thing. Our guy, Matt at kayaking Smith, quote, tweeted the athletics Dave O'Brien. Here's the tweet from Dave. For those wondering about the argument at the end, ump told Kenley Jansen, he was out of time and couldn't keep warming up, snitch said that was BS because they stopped him coming in to check for sticky substances as they do all closers and he needed to throw a couple more warmup pitches and then Matt writes in integrity of the game is important and the pace of play push is key for the league, but player health should be a priority, right? Shouldn't the league ease these rules, especially with such long bullpen walk distances in some parks. You know, I can do both sides on this. On one hand, yeah, I did what snits and we had the braves the day after that incident happened. And snicker felt like, look, give him a warning, do something different than the way he handled it right from the get go. And on the other hand, the rules of the rules, right? I mean, if the umpires are going to bend rules for one player, what happens the next time he comes up with another player. And the players know the rules. And Kenley does take time to get out of the bullpen. He takes a little bit extra time. So maybe by doing it this way, the next time he'll speed up. But it did feel like in that moment that Bill Miller could have handled a little bit differently. I like that we're analyzing the pace of these guys walks from the bullpen right now. This is awesome. Well, you remember, as an Orioles fan, you remember Lee Smith. Yes, I do. The clothes are of the Orioles who they would put a clock on him and how long it would take and to get from the bullpen to the moon. I think it was sometime like three minutes Taylor, does that sound about right? Yeah. That sounds about right. Damn, that is a long time. Speed it up, guys. Come on, Adam wolf at Adam wolford and writes, and hey guys, buster, in your time covering the Padres, could you have ever imagined the fan support the team is receiving right now, specifically their home opener the other night. Adam I had a great conversation the other day with the owner of the Padres Peter seidler and I said to him, he said, I never could have imagined the support like this. It is a great atmosphere in San Diego. The fans are responding to this team. I think the leadership of the team in terms of marketing the club and they've done a great job and, you know, Peter was very positive. He, of course, the grandson of Walter O'Malley and there's been someone who's done a great job. I think in terms of engaging fans since he took over the Padres. Max Moreno at max Moreno three is up next. He writes in hunter green throws 39 pitches at a hundred miles an hour plus, while awesome to watch, I can't help but think the human arm is just not made to withstand this kind of stress. Maximum with you like these days when you see radar gun ratings like that, you know, part of you is excited and part of you cringes a little bit, I hope he holds up the one thing I would say in watching hunter green throw. There's an ease to it. It's kind of like when the first time you saw her all this chap and throw. He just looks very comfortable throwing it high velocity. Last one for today, PK Steinberg writes in, dug up about two dozen dandelions today. What my GAR gardening above replacement. Yeah, what do you think buster? Yeah, I think it's like a plus 6. I think 18 dandelions a day in April is a pretty good ratio. So if you're doing 24, I think that makes you an all star gardener. That's awesome. I knew you would have a good answer for that. That's bleacher tweets, everyone. Hashtag bleacher tweets on Twitter and please follow rate and review this podcast wherever you're listening to your podcasts. That's it for today, my thanks to Tim, Sarah Sarah and Taylor, have a great day, everybody. Thanks for listening..

"That's what I'd say you're going to think of buck Martinez when you see that. But that's okay. You went on a Jerry West diet tribe and I love it. Well, I had to. I love Jerry West, I met him once, and it was one of the greatest days of my whole life. It was fascinating. All right, Jim, thanks for doing this great to talk with you. Okay, see you buster. This is the numbers game with Sarah langs. They're langs are reporter and producer from MLB dot com, Sarah how are you doing today? I'm doing great buster, how are you? I'm doing great. Thanks for joining us today. I want to start out with a bleacher tweet for you from Sarah Gillespie, sent this yesterday and I laughed when I saw it that this would have absolutely be perfect for you. She's at tape a typical faith, she writes dear bleacher tweets, I want to see some stats based on the height of KK socks talking about GK Hernandez. I have a hunch is batting averages high with higher socks. What say you, Sarah? Well, I wish we tracked this, you know? I mean, as a kid, I always used to think that players who had their socks higher would run faster on the base path. So I totally agree with her idea that it may be helping his game. But when this tweet happened, my father texted me. And said, good thing I taught you about. So that's from 12th night. We saw a production 12th night when I was like four years old. And the actor had really high up socks and every time a player comes into a game with high socks like that, my dad mentions malvolio. So we need to somehow unite he gave Hernandez and Shakespeare in place. Somehow, some way we need to track that statistic about the other sides, for sure. All right, let's play the numbers game. Number three number three is 8.4%. So let's say a Suzuki's chase rate right now. And he is off to an incredible start to his career. And it's not just a great start for anyone to a major league career. It's a great start to the season overall. That 8.4% chase rate is the lowest in the majors. And again, those are the first however many pitches he's seen at the major league level. He has the third lowest swing rate. And when he does swing, he's making a lot of hard contact and good contact and we've seen outstanding results so far. Number two number two is 1.07. So that is the mets rotation ERA heading into their double header against the Giants this afternoon. That is the lowest CRA by any team starting pitchers in their first ten games of the season since earn runs became an official Staten 1913. The lowest of any team and they don't have Jacob de Grom, and I know a lot of people point out that of course this group through a lot fewer innings and the team that they surpass no list, which are from 1963, 1920, 1913, but in a lot of ways, if you fewer innings, it's going to be harder to keep that ERA down because if you give up a run, it's going to balloon it that much more. Number one number one is 39. So that is how many hundred mile an hour pitches. Hunter green through on Saturday in LA. That is the most hundred mile an hour pitches in the game by anybody in the pitch tracking era that goes back to 2008. He surpassed Jacob de Grom, Jordan hicks, native Aldi, another game by the grand 39 pitches of a hundred miles an hour. So to put that a little bit into perspective, last year, with the fact that we have a lot of guys to throw hard these days. Only ten major league teams total through more than 38, 3900 mile an hour pitches for the entire season. And he did that in his second start and we talked about it last week. He had 2000 mile an hour pitches and his first start. And I know a lot of my mentions on Twitter have said, oh, he's going to need Tommy John. Oh, via low isn't everything. He's had Tommy John surgery. He is back at this level, and he is an outstanding slider, is not just about villa with him, but he has so much velocity. Would you agree with me when you watch him pitch Sarah? It's like it's easy gas. Yes. It's so effortless as the first word that comes to mind. It's incredible. I mean, these tall, he's big. And it just looks so easy. All right, before we go, I want you to chime in on the conversation on Joe Maddon's decision to walk Corey Seeger at the base of loaded. In the fourth inning. And that to me is such a key part of this. I can't, I can't wrap my mind around it that there'd be any logic to support this. You are an expert in probability and statistics and how it increases your chances to win. What was your take on this? Because I don't think any numbers would support it. I don't know that there's a number that's worth it. I was really shocked. I mean, if you go back at the other instances that we have evidence on, they were all late in the game. The very bonds one that comes up so frequently and the other time Joe Maddon did this for both in the 9th inning to try to prevent a walk off or go ahead, Grand Slam. I was shocked specifically at when it happened in the game. I really enjoyed Joe Maddon saying he was trying to hype up his team. I'm not sure I believed it, but I really, really enjoyed that. It was very funny. It was very him. But I really don't know where that came from. The best thing overall was the clip of it happening, which I believe the rangers tweeted out. And there's a moment where Mike Trout looks looks to second, looks to their realizes what is happening and kind of has a really confused puppy kind of look on his face. What's going on here? That's exactly right. And I think we're all feel that way after seeing that play out. All right, Sarah, thanks for doing this, great to see you. Thanks so much for having me buster. Bleacher.

"Boy, you know, if the Yankees have to play in Toronto without him, that would be a huge story considering everything that has gone on. Go ahead. Yeah. Another COVID season buster one way or another. I thought we were kind of past it, but this Toronto issue itself makes this a COVID affected season. All right, Jake arita announces yesterday he's retiring from baseball. What's his legacy going to be? Well, he had one of the great Cy Young seasons ever. He had a stretch there buster. I'm going to be close on this from like July until April of the following year where he allowed he hit more home runs free than he allowed to think about that for a second. He was so dominant during that period, it was absurd. You remember those that year buster when he struck everyone out. He didn't walk anybody. He gave up no runs like all the time. It was unbelievable. And to come from Baltimore where he had performed poorly, they questioned all sorts of things about him, including his manhood for him to go out there and be great for that stretch of time and pitch for a World Series champion is pretty cool, but I will remember the day I was in spring training with the Orioles and Brady Anderson, the mischievous Brady Anderson, you know him well, buster said, hey, Jake, Tim's here today. Why don't you show them how you can walk across a room on your hands. So Jane Carey had a guy on his hands, walked across Clubhouse on his hands. I don't think whitey Ford was doing that in the early 60s. I'm not sure I've ever seen a pitcher do that. That was pretty darn impressive. Man. He was. And I got to be there when he threw his no hitter against the Dodgers. We had that game on Sunday Night baseball. That was a fun broadcast and remember seeing his joy after that game. And I remember, you know, as that game is going along after two innings, I told Tom archer because it was a play early in that game. You remember, it was like a chopper hit to the second baseman, and it was scored an error..

"Just another reminder, way off target here, how good the really good teams are and how bad some other teams are. The braves won a couple games in San Diego and then they lost on Sunday Night baseball. They lose the first game of the series against the Dodgers, but there's good stuff on the horizon for them. Ronald lacuna junior starts his minor league rehabilitation assignment now. He's expected to play home games. We're going to next week and then the following week, he's likely returned to the major leagues and Tim. I think based on what I saw in spring training, how good he looked, how confident he seemed to be coming back from that knee injury. I think the impact from Acuna is going to be immediate. And I look at the braves and I know they're kind of slogged along a little bit here. I look at the braves and I'm like, this is a great team that's going to be maybe upper Ashland, we're going to have the Dodgers and the braves at the very top. There was a great stat going into Sunday's game that the braves were number one in baseball and hard contact from their lineup. And their pictures were number one in allowing the least amount of hard contact across the major leagues. All of that, with the return of Ronald lacuna junior, portends of good things to come for them. Absolutely. I mean, they haven't gotten going at all so far other than Matt Olson. I mean, Eddie Rosario last I look was like one for 26. Adam Duval had 38 homers last year when his first 35 at bats and not more without a Homer this year. Danny Swanson has struck out in all 12 games that he's played so far. This is all going to change. Those guys are all going to produce and then they're going to bring in the best player on the team. Now, Acuna junior, I saw him this spring two buster, I watched him take batting practice. It was ridiculous. If you didn't know he was hurt, you would swear he's a 100% healthy. The doctors naturally would not clear him to play. And even if he comes back just as a DH until everything feels right, then that's a tremendous bad to add to that team. And with the way they pitch for the most part this year, there's no reason not to really like where the braves are going to be going this year. Now, you said he's the best player on the team. I tend to think of him as being the best player in baseball. Not for you, where would you have him at this point? Well, I still can't put him ahead of Mike Trout, but let's not forget. Let's not forget what Ronald lacuna junior was doing last year when he got hurt. I mean, it was ridiculous how good he was, and he gets better every time he steps on the field. But I just need to see him play every day in the outfield before I'm going to proclaim anything. And let's face it buster. This is one thing the braves are not very good at right now as their outfield defense. That needs to be sure enough. And that can be done when Acuna junior gets healthy and can play center field right field left field wherever they want them anytime he wants. So give us your line about going to the ballpark every day. Give us that well, this is not exactly revealing, but I've said it a million times and I believe it. I was saying it when I was ten. Every time you go to the ballpark, you might see something that you've never seen before. How many people buster in their professions go to work saying, you know, something might happen today that I've never seen before. Something might happen that hasn't happened in a 120 years. And I'm going to be watching it tonight. To me, that's the ultimate beauty of the game. It's things happen and you go like this. I do this about four times a day every day during the baseball season. That's how beautiful the game is. And we had that the other day in the game between the angels and rangers, bases loaded, Corey Seeger at the plate for Texas, Joe Maddon managing for the angels, and this is what happened. And the.

"State law. We should dismantle the fact that indigenous peoples are seen as research subjects and areas of expertise rather than the scientists and experts themselves. From food or media and PRX, it's Latino USA. I'm Maria nosa. Today, Jessica Hernandez, on why we need indigenous environmental science. For Jessica Hernandez becoming an environmental scientist, seem like the most natural thing in the world, she had grown up learning about animals and plants from her grandmother in Oaxaca in southern Mexico. She loved going fishing with her father, where she always seemed to learn something new. Jessica felt that she already had so much to share with other people who were interested in the environment. But when she started studying marine science, things weren't so simple, all of a sudden, as an indigenous immigrant woman at a university in the United States, the knowledge she brought to the classroom was mocked or dismissed. Her professors had no interest in what she and by extension her family and her community had to say. Still, Jessica knew that she belonged any place where the environment was being discussed. Not just for her love of nature, but because she had seen how being shut out of the conversation had been so harmful to her and communities. So she finished her degree, but didn't stop there. She got a masters, and then a PhD in environmental and forestry sciences. She learned the formulas and specialized terms used in academia, and she confirmed what she had always known that what her grandmother and father had taught her was also a form of science. Now Jessica has collected her family's stories, historical accounts and other case studies in the book fresh banana leaves. Healing indigenous landscapes through indigenous science. She hopes it's going to change the way we think about environmental science. In her own words, here's the story of doctor Jessica Hernandez.

Old jennifer anandas. I'd say you should continue with a serious level of mistrust for those. Who are telling you what you need to do. What you can't do I can't even you know in fifth grade. I was told i could. Maybe aspire to be a teacher secretary or a nurse but otherwise being a mom would be great.

I didn't i didn't appreciate that It turns out that density housing is the most expensive housing we know how to build the about the complexities of steel frames and elevators and redundant life safety systems.

"Need to remind people how successful this pattern of Reducing pollution and protecting the environment has in fact really worked how successful. It's been Over the past years and and and stop already with the doom and gloom That you know unless we end capitalism which is not hyperbolic statement You know we can't solve global warming And and that's you know it starts with wait a minute in a you know in the nineteen forties. We already had error in southern california. That was so bad. People thought it was a gas attack from the japanese during the war and it was. It took us a little while. If you're out actually know this weird thing that happens in sky with he and and particulates from combustion and and my goodness who knew and certainly who knew that. A bunch of weird where earth minerals could be assembled into something called the catalytic converter and now this region is in attainment of the goals that we originally sent over the clean air act when there were there was talk about having to depopulate los angeles. Get rid of cars Once we figured out it wasn't the japanese and the gas attack so we have to be a little more humble. I think about what we don't know But also about the importance of continuing to respect all laws including civil rights laws in weighing what the appropriate environmental solutions could be. You know in in during the drought which california's has quite regularly Families are asked to reduce water consumption. Without question our household could most easily deuce water consumption by exporting. Our teenage son would've done it in a heartbeat. That's a ridiculous concept and no one really part about it or suggested but when you think about california climate policy and the she choi- would or a ton of cement imported from a dirtier coal based grid has zero. Ghg it's just a laughably absolutely absurd metric so let's just you know. Let's hold the climate accountability you know rally and call for honest math. Let's start with that and let's go back to a little bit of cost-benefit ranking. What are we going to get right now. Every forest fire season we're emitting krislindahl. Nearly ten million cars of pollution of rehouse gas into the air and we're also by the way strangling people from smoking. Relation and killing. People in fires is our more urgent public health prices. Then getting a handle on fires in california other than covert force. And and so okay. Fine we know. We need to do things differently. We we forested we you know. We cut timber for years and then we just stopped and we didn't do anything really manage for us. And now we gotta get rid of a lot of dead dying trees and yet we can't get our act together to allow those trees to be turned into pellets and burned for power which in europe counts as a zero greenhouse. Gas renewable technology but in california is considered a dirty technology. And that's just a matter of the prejudice and bias of those in environmental leadership positions on climate. Who find the idea of burning a tree even dead tree. it's otherwise than exploded. Caused far more pollution and even death but burning that tree or cutting it down. Even if it's dead is a nightmare just a horror of values based horror and that may be true that data's not environmental stewardship. It's not environmental leadership. And it certainly is counterproductive from a climate perspective We we we simply can't keep pandering to the lowest common denominator in the environmental worlds. That simply say we have to stop raping mother guy. There are too many of us and make a most of us miserable while leaving those wealthy enough to have home generators and solar walls of of batteries With the lights on and everybody else can just go to bed at eight..

"When i was reporting this episode i interviewed marlins shirley for hours my producers and i were captivated by his story. He was charismatic charming. We thought we had this episode ready to go until we did a routine check and found something in shirley's past something that had been overlooked in march two thousand when he was twenty one years old shirley got into an argument in his home with his ex girlfriend. According to the sheriff's report she wanted to leave but surely took her keys and refused to let her go. He grabbed her pushed her and at one point struggle. She said he slammed the door on her hand. He was arrested and pled guilty to a charge of gross misdemeanor assault about seven months after the incident. He was winning medals at the paralympics. As far as i can tell this has never been reported. He was never mentioned in any of the interviews or the glowing profiles about marlin shirley as he became the face of the paralympics in the early. Two thousands given that this podcast. We'll be exploring gender based violence. I needed to learn more my producers. And i tried contacting shirley's ex girlfriend but she in return our messages. She didn't wanna talk to us. And we respect that. But i still needed to reach out to shirley and ask if he would talk about it on the record. I wasn't sure how he'd respond. Would he be defensive hostile what he talk about it at all the important thing to me was to get on and actually talk to you guys. It's just man when you concert next violence. It's important that we hold ourselves and each other. Countable there's no way to put it softly. It was what i did and it was horrible and it was frightening. I did this. And i'm sorry listening to shirley i was kind of taken aback. It's rare to hear someone who's committed domestic violence especially a public figure talk about it with such candor domestic violence domestic violence. There's no level of not that bad. there's no excuse for any of it doesn't matter it was one time it only takes one time like there's all kinds of ways to get out of this kind of stuff i mean. Come on there is. There's no way. I want to get out of this. No way acts not even look at my family. If i tried to get away with it. Like there's there's just not going to happen. I couldn't live with myself. Had i done. And that would have been something that would actually haunt me. It was a horrible day horrible mistake and one that wasn't repeated shirley seems sincere. He appeared to take accountability. Doesn't excuse what he did but it seems if he learned from his mistake we looked around and as far as we can tell. There haven't been any other charges like this against him as we keep going here in dig. Deeper and oscar pistorius is story. We're going to examine his behavior leading up to the murder of reva steenkamp and how he responded afterward to. I think there are a lot of lessons to be learned here about how we treat our sports heroes. How we fall in love with their stories and how that causes us to overlook certain things about them and the real consequences of doing that in pistorious his case. We're going to piece it all together and by the end of this series. Maybe we'll have a better understanding of how he became an icon and how a tragedy like is murder could have happened. I'm tim ruin. And this is false idol. Next time he would bring a nation together. Where no matter your background your race your gender your religion when we talked about.

"Another way to think about it. Surely and frazier have one blade and one biological foot and pistorious has two blades the way they run the bio mechanics of it is fundamentally different because a blade is lighter than a foot. So what does that mean. In an actual race pistorious doesn't have full calf muscles or ankle joints which men he had trouble getting out of the starting blocks but once he was up in going he really got going in the longer races. Like the two hundred and four hundred meter when he had time to settle into his stride. He often ran better down the stretch like when he came from behind to beat frazier. And that's not all having to blades gave pistorious another potential advantage the opportunity to lengthen shorten yourself. I'm dr one i'm stuck. I can't be no taller on one side than the other histories can make himself taller. And shirley and frazier cannot there. One blade can only be as long as their biological limb and surely firmly believes the taller. You are the longer your stride the faster you run yeah i mean you just open up your stride foot. At least i mean this is a matter of an inch or two. It's matter of you know foot so you're taking you know. Say forty five steps in one hundred meter race and personal right. He has taken fifty one. I mean there's gonna be a difference there. This is why frazier and shirley were suspicious of stories. When he showed up athens when they noticed he looked taller. After this two thousand four games fraiche shirley both made comments in the media about his blade. Hi shirley framed it as an indictment against the integrity of their sport against the authenticity of their races. This we've got to our sport you know to wear. I think we have amputee saying amputees or taking advantages over each other. I mean that shouldn't happen. But in the same sense i it was a sports responsibility to hold up a standard and they felt us. At one point. The paralympics international governing body created a rule to keep bilateral amputees honest. They would calculate height for each individual bilaterally up. Ut kind of like how frazier did for pistorius back in north carolina. Any runner found to be taller than are determined height. Wouldn't be allowed to compete. But somehow stories has blades passed the test. They were sort of very lenient. And what i mean by that is that there was a huge range that they could fall under as far as the top end range and we're talking several inches. They definitely were using a calculator. He's six five guy can't compete against that when you have the perfect specimen athlete on top of it. Ananta cost of that was you know. Someone's only four your opportunity to have a chance to win a gold medal. So i don't wanna sound like i'm griping about this but it made it difficult for me at times. It's really kinda feel like. I wanted to always compete some of these races. But look these guys. Lost pistorious maybe. They were just salty right so i wanted to fact check what they were saying. I called francois vanderlei. Who's one of his stories is first prostitutes years ago. The inner told a reporter that frazier's calculations were too conservative implying. That that's why. The blades were heightened. But when i called him he told a different story he said pistorius did not heighten his blades before his first paralympics he said maybe story is just had a growth spurt. He was seventeen after all but in interviews pistorious attributed his fast times to his training and work ethic. Haven't changed my leg since two thousand and four when assaulted so any improvements. Since i started have not been from any aid or any changes made there have been from hard training and and a lot of sacrifice if this was such amazing piece of equipments in come thousands of other paralympic athletes on breaking world records. After pistorius became a star the paralympics actually saw an influx of bilateral amputee sprinters more blade runners and they did start breaking world records. Pistorius has world records. If you look at the record book for this classification the top nine fastest times in the four hundred meter dash are all held by bilateral amputees. One thing has been clear. Is that any bilateral runner. That's has been out there. All of them have certainly gone for the maximum height. There's no question about that in the end. Deepest raises blades. It's hard to say. But i do feel.

I think it was estimated. He was making like you know one to one point. Five million dollars a year for a disabled track athlete. That is just huge. He was everywhere right. It was the poster child of the paralympics. And he's this young good looking kid who's kicking it on the track. He's all over the media and magazines just. His name was on the lips of a lot of different people across the world to be an inspiration. Literally the times magazine says you one of the one hundred most influential people in the world. Not everyone was happy about. The story is dominating the spore. I was just holding on for anything. I could to lessen how badly i was getting. My butt kicked. Here's it wasn't like a meter or two meters. It was like ten eleven years. I mean that's it was huge. It was it was horrifying. I hated every moment of it. The public at large viewed pistorius as generational athlete a one of a kind star but marlins shirley he saw story in a different light. Nobody wants to be seen losing like that but not always a fair race more. After the break stay with us oscar pistorius was on the rise. He was establishing himself as the face of the paralympics but among his peers controversy was brewing. Let's go back to the two thousand and four games in athens. The stories his first paralympics ryan frazier told me a story about the first time. He saw his story as out in the warm up track. Pistorious look different than he had a few months prior when they had worked out together and then race near oklahoma city. I see this sort of blurred. Just fly by down the track. And i was like whoa was like who is that kid and as i got closer i realized it was oscar and i i noticed something different something very different and as i got up to him i realized it was just. He was clearly taller as like. You grew a couple of inches and he kind of laughed. He was like yeah. It was like you know. He said i didn't feel like my height was the appropriate height so we had some more blades. Senate i had a re cut in. Increased height frazier found that odd prostitutes have formulas for measuring. How tall runners blades should be based on the dimensions of the rest of their body. In frazier himself had calculated Would be height when he fitted him for those running blades. Ultimately what i came up with was that he would be between six foot and maybe up to six foot one and i want to say that. When he showed up in athens he had to be sitting at at least about six. Three marlin is a good one inch taller. The about six one and oscar was probably at least about an inch and a half two inches taller. The marlin surely noticed to meet you tall. I'm sorry i had. Because i have a photo of him and i his arms around me by the way i don't like six one six two and he's like residence his arms on my shoulders like a man child. In their eyes stories had shown up to his first paralympics super sized having gained maybe one or two inches in height then he ran down frazier in that thrilling. Two hundred meter qualifying heat remember. Pistorious got a slow start out of the blocks and still came back and won the race and then in the two hundred meter final. He was even better. That got frazier thinking when he beat me. And oklahoma city are times. were pretty much dead. Even from the time we laughed oklahoma city. There was only about six weeks between that point and athens. And so what dawned on me after the race was the fact that i was like well. It would have been really hard to have made those sorts of gains. Just were six weeks of training. And maybe the height adjustment could've played into that frazier's math is a bit off their. They're actually about fourteen weeks between oklahoma city in two hundred meter. Final and athens but still pistorious didn't have that much time to make that much of an improvement between those races. He shaved about three quarters of a second off his time. That's unheard of the story. Says career had just begun and already people at questions about his blades and whether they gave him an unfair advantage. These questions would hound pistorious throughout his career. Frazier and shirley were particularly sensitive to the subject to maybe because they technically weren't supposed to be running against pistorious in the first place see. The paralympics typically divide runners into separate classes based on the type of amputations they have but not with pistorious. Pistorius is a bilateral amputee. He's missing both of his lower limbs and that made him kind of rare. there weren't enough bilaterally. mtv's to feel their own race. And so the paralympics lumped pistorious and the other bilaterally amputees into a class with shirley and frazier who had a different type of amputation. Their unilateral amputees.

"After the two thousand paralympics it fellows if marlins shirley and brian frasure would dominate the sport for years the com- like shirley. Brian grow up dreaming of being paralympian. Brian actually grew up having both his biological fee. He ran track in high school and he played intramural sports in college and north carolina state in the early nineties. It was also during college. The brian picked up an odd hobby. There are train tracks that run right through the nc state campus in a few guys brainstorm decided they wanted to see who could hop the most trains at one semester even had a leaderboard in the hallway and at that point unfortunately my competitive side kick. Dan and i thought to myself. Oh i'm clearly the fastest guy in the sweet. I could crush these guys that this one night is sophomore year. Brian was in his dorm doing homework when he heard a train off in the distance ran out to the tracks. But this time everybody was just kinda standing back looking at the train. Like deer in headlights and they're like no way. I'm going after this. It's too fast but not me. I think i can catch this. I take off. Normally they run alongside the train hop on one of the latter's stay on for a little bit and then jump off but right when i went for the latter i slept and lost my footing and the train immediately jerk me off my feet i like go ahead and roll but i rolled back into the train and it came directly across the ankle on my left foot doctors amputated. Brian's left-foot lying in the hospital. He wondered if he'd ever walk again. And fortunately for me my prostate is was also an amputee himself and he was actually the one pushing me to set my sights on becoming a paralympic sprinter. Not only did he become a paralympian. He went to school to be a prostitutes to. I really felt compelled to be able to work with other patients to really sorta pass along that torch just like my first process. Did frazier would go on to get a job. With one of the leading providers of prosthetic legs. He was the unique paralympian. Who understood the technology that he and shirley and the rest of the sprinters were running on then in two thousand. Four frazier received a request from one of his colleagues instead. Yeah hey brian. There's this kid. And south africa's names oscar story as he's been following your career. He's really interested in getting involved in competing in the paralympics. But he's been running on these homemade legs san. let's try to get some running feet made for oscar. At the time oscar pistorius was an unknown. He was shimin ten year old kid from south africa. A bilateral amputee missing both of his lower limbs who picked up spurning earlier that year as a way to recover from a rugby injury then he started entering races and putting up some fast times. It was actually kind of common for top paralympic springer's to essentially come out of nowhere. Look at what happened with marlin shirley and so frazier invited the stories to visit him in raleigh north carolina. I remember walking up to their hotel. Room knocked on the door and oscar. Just kinda comes rushing up with this huge smile on his face a mouthful of braces and he just walked right up to me. Brian and i reached out my hand to shake his hand and he just came in for a big bear hug. And i felt like we sort of bonded just right out of the gate by then paralympian running on prosthetic legs. That look like blades frazier. Philip is stories with the latest technology the cheetah flex foot carbon-fiber running legs made by oeser. These are the blazes. Paralympian 's ran on the ones that pistorious would eventually make famous the ones that look like an upside down question. Mark as stories tried out his new legs. Frazier marvel that athleticism the ease of his stride. And i remember the first time. We got his alignment to the point where he could just really open up and sprint for the first time and i just remember thinking to myself. Oh shit what have i created. There's my competition for this year and the paralympics. Even so frazier took mysterious under his wing. They worked out together. Had dinners together and frazier top stories. All he could about being a pair olympia now. Histories need to see how his legs held up against real competition. He and frazier at both registered. Competed attract me hell near oklahoma city in the two hundred meter. Race frazier jumped out to an early lead. I remember in that race. I came off. Turn and you can always tell if an athlete's of close to unite then and with the prosthetic slot can here it to just kind of that. Thud the prosthetic on the track and at about the one eighty mark started to kind of relax a little bit and i was just gonna cruise on end and all of a sudden. All i hear was don't don't don't don't don't don't an oscar just goes right by the at the finish line. We got the dinner that night and he was like. Do you think actually have a chance to metal and the paralympics. And i was like well considering you just beat the fastest amputee in the world of the two hundred i would say your chances are pretty good. The two thousand four athens paralympics. Were only a few months away and to win. Gold destroys would have to go through. Both brian frazier and marlon shirley. When pistorius arrived in athens shirley didn't know much about him. Stories had only taking up competitive running eight months prior. I had heard about him. But i never pay attention to it. I was his own world. Damone thank. I really didn't even have on my radar then surely watched pistorious race frazier in a two hundred meter. Qualifying heat gun goes off and he's still in the blocks any looks like to the right and the left. Quick at the guy who's only gun guys like do go out and turn my head to the right and oscar is still down on all fours and he looked at me like what the hell just happened so felt like i had this locked up and showed about one eighty. I started to ease off. And then one more time. I hear that. Don't don't don't don't don't don't and oscar goes blowing by me again. And i have the up close and personal experience of watching this man. Take off. And noli catch brian. Pass brian and zoom down. The back end of the track. He's store the best we had world was nothing then. Pistorious beat shirley and frazier both in the two hundred meter final in one gold. The veterans have been put on notice. Pistorius had arrived. Pistorious is rapid success as attracted an enormous amount of media attention particularly in his homeland but historians as much a role model as the country's rugby or football players. Four years later at the two thousand eight paralympics pistorious swept gold in the one hundred two hundred and four hundred meter races. He had taken the crown from shirley he was now. The undisputed fastest amputee in the world and the international media was starting to take notice. Here's clare balding again. Timing is everything and as a movement is gaining traction and attention into its midst comes of young good looking talented athletes. He's eloquent and he's charming and he was winning everything over all distances in everybody's going okay. Who's this guy. Stories was running so fast. He had begun competing in races against able bodied athletes. His hope was that some day he could qualify for the olympic games. No amputee sprinter had ever done that before. He was positioned shelf as more than a paralympian. He was a trailblazer. Not only was he a paralympian that could translate to general sports fans. He just wanted to see a big event but also he could pop up on the front page of a magazine dressed like mortal and look like a film star. Oscar was able to take what pioneers of the sport like marlin and i had done and as far as scratching and clawing getting some sponsorship and.

"And this coach had a specific vision for surely he's looking in the high jump is kind of like. That's nice thing by see you. The vast personal role against sprang team like sprinting. And damn i got sprint. Surely had no clue then. The coach brought into a track meet for paralympic athletes for people with disabilities. I had never seen really another amputee or anything like that. And i will. I just couldn't believe i. These is were the slight insane. Amazing just don't like you would expect an athlete to be built their intimidating as hell. This coach introduced him to this whole new world for people just like him. These people look like professional athletes. All muscle tone the only difference they were running prosthetics to compensate for their missing limbs and they performed like professional athletes to their times rolling a few seconds behind their olympic counterparts shirley at found his passion is life purpose over the next few years shirley began training with top pair olympic sprinters and coaches setting sights on the two thousand paralympics in sydney. Along the way he met another american sprinter whose only a few years older than him. Brian frasure frazier was supposed to be the next big thing and the beginning. We weren't really that good friends and we just looked at each other as competitors. And i remember marlins showing up to a race in california and marlon wasn't actually competed there. He was just there sort of scoping out the scene and it was just staring at me. Like i'm coming after you. And and i just remember looking everything going. Who is this kid glaring at me. After that frazier and shirley would often see each other on track circuit. They were usually two of the best runners in a race. They pushed each other and in time. They became friends when they arrived in sydney. For the two thousand paralympics. They chose the room together. The decision seemed odd. They were technically supposed to be rivals going into the hundred meter final. They were two of the top contenders you know. I was the favourite at the time and he was certainly getting faster and faster and knew he was going to be my primary competition going into that race but that recent particular it was like someone shot him out of a cannon and i knew the race was over in the first three steps to the united states trimming streaming down the line for show biddle soon but did i win the gold medal. I broke the world record. I absolutely smash record of broken by three tenths of a second surely took a victory lap around the track basking in the cheers then later that night. He went back out into the stadium. I've got the whole olympic stadium empty. So i walk out to the grass area in the middle and I'm just looking up at the torch and his thing like he's to believe this surely left. Sydney having won the gold medal in the hundred meter dash and the silver medal in the hijo. At twenty two years old he become the fastest. Amputee in the world shirley's life changed overnight when he got back to utah. They threw a parade gave him a key to the city and declared it. Marlins shirley day president bill clinton invited him to the white house along with the rest of the us olympic team. I ask all the team here. So that i could forgive them for completely destroying my sleep habits for several weeks. I've got the president of the united states right side. I've got the first lady at my left side. And i'm putting the jacket on bill clinton and giving his speech at the white house. Mr president on behalf of the entire two thousand euros paralympic team. We are to have you as a teammate. Thank you mr president. Hillary and chelsea surely gave interviews and made appearances something keeps happening over and over. Maybe an engagement. Or i'd be on a live interview and he asked about how the special olympics were. It was oh good for you. Compete in special olympics. Of course the paralympics and special olympics are two very different events. The special olympics were founded in the nineteen sixties by eunice kennedy shriver jfk. Sister she created the event for people with intellectual disabilities and it's been an incredibly important event for millions of people. The idea for the paralympics starting late nineteen forties when hospital in. Great britain began organizing athletic events for injured war veterans. The general idea was to create event for people with physical disabilities in time. It expanded to include countries around the world. It became essentially another version of the olympics. Two contestants wheelchairs the from being sportsman by the late eighties organizers were staging the event in the same city as the olympics only a few weeks after the also gave it an official name. The paralympics the name paralympic. A lot of people. Think something's paraplegic. It's not permanent pickens parallel to the olympics. That's clear balding. She's covered six for the bbc and channel four tv networks in uk and. She's one of the foremost experts on the spore. She covered her first paralympics in two when marlon shirley made his big arrival back then. The games were nearly impossible to find on. Tv and she noticed. Journalists didn't take it too seriously. They treated paralympic athletes. Maybe sometimes still do as an oddity as a sideshow as a something that that must be owner. Let's find out how they lost their legs rather than. Let's find out what trainings been going. Like and who they see as their biggest rivals you know and i could see in press conferences. Sometimes athletes is start lower lincoln seriously. One country that was particularly lacking in its paralympics. Coverage was the united states at one point. Balding asked around about why that might be what came back was. Oh it's because we cover the special olympics. And i said but that's that's not the same then in the early two. Thousands here came. Marlins shirley and brian frazier to americans who brought a bit of star power to the paralympics. I would gave brian fraser in modern shelly. Lots of credit for making a bit more rock and roll. You know they made it interesting and fun. You'd watch them and think yeah. This seems quite cool. Actually i want to be a part of it. I wanted to be the world's fast santee in to matter. The world's fastest amputee. I was just gonna make sure that when people thought of disabled sports athletes built to penetrative hungry and be able to relate with people from all types across the country across the world surely recognized that the sport needed stars like him to help it grow the helps cement its status in the landscape. He won to espy awards. Sports illustrated wrote a lengthy profile of him and he landed a number of high profile. Endorsements visa home depot even mcdonalds. He'd come a long way from being that little boy wandering. The streets of las vegas asking for a happy meal thought that right on the base very happy meal and cup you know in america i was just sent a position where i just had a bigger vision of everything and i just wanted to make it larger than life by giddy endorsing cited. You know large companies. I felt it was a way to legitimize the sport but surely never broke through like he thought he would his time. At the top was ultimately cut short because justice his career took off a new challenger arrived someone who take the baton from him. Whether he's ready.

Going and i could just feel that little little tiny zinger in the back of my aquiles surely took his place in the starting blocks. He told himself. It's only ten seconds. I'll be fine and dislike that we're gone and my muscle memory just took over and is quick as race started. It ended marley here. Kuzma story has. The story is barely singleton at the line. What happened to shirley. He hit hard surely had ruptured his achilles midway through the race. I was actually really embarrassed. I just wanted to get out of there.
