No US Open for Nadal; Olympics Re-Lived: 2004 Athens

"Fellow folks, and welcome. Once again to the tennis podcast and the latest edition of Olympics relived, we've already lived through the Olympics nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, three to the two thousand in Sydney, and we now arrive at two thousand four Athens Olympics return to it, spurs place one, hundred, four years earlier just before we get onto reliving. Olympic things a little bit of news to one since our last weekly tennis actual tennis based podcast couple of days ago. The knees we've had is the entry list is out for the US Open. And Rafael. Nadal is not on it. He has made an announcement that he will not be playing the USA Open. It is for health risk based reasons, which I think we'll. We'll respect that obviously disappointing for the tournament that that won't be their first. Grand, Slam with neither federal known adult, since Nineteen Ninety nine on the women's side nine. If the world's top turn on the entry list, it's only a number one ashburn on it. Obviously, entry list does not mean list of players that are actually definitely going to play. But it's nonetheless, you know this early stage, a bit of beast for the US Open, and the other bit of News we've had is that. As entirely expected at the Madrid Masters and premium mandatory tournament has been canceled. I. Mean the writing on the wall. That as we discussed on Monday, but it has been formally cancelled. We do understand there's a chance that Kitsch Buell, which is tournament that must get mentioned on every tennis podcast apparently. Might. Now, move. Back a week to take up that place in the calendar where Madrid. We're going to be of I said that quickly enough so that we can move onto Olympic stuff. Is Seen as possible. I mean there are a lot of good players. All over those interests, and as you say, who knows how many of them will end up playing but him and we we knew that the likelihood was the Dow wasn't gonNA play. There was maybe a little bit of doubt about that. When Madrid was canceled perhaps Nadal might have changed his mind, but you said it's at the time you felt that if it was a view on the virus itself and not wanting to travel and it's not going to change and sure enough he made it clear that it was because of his concerns over the virus, he just feels the world isn't ready for that and he's He's not comfortable to travel. I did sort of slightly Riley. Smile. When I saw the pressure relation, the US not even including the dowels name in the release, not even acknowledging that they're defending their reigning champion was not actually going to be there because of the decision he taken and yet they did mention that Roger Federer wasn't going to be there because of his injury I thought that was poor. I think just acknowledging the champion would have been a classier thing to have done, and actually I noticed in Chris. Clarity's piece overnight in the new. York Times that he spoke to the tournament Director Stacey Allaster who? took a completely different tack and pay tribute to refer and said, she looked forward to returning and I think that that is certainly the right way to of played that. But yeah. We've also seen one or two notes overnight of the protocols that the USDA plan to. Employ for covid nineteen testing, and if somebody tests positive in a team or an or apply themselves, the play will just be removed from the tournament and we'll have to isolate and. The words of James Blake really came back to me are upon reading those rules of just what it might take even for the tournaments if it had a lot of. People testing positive in having to be removed from the drawer. How many Coulda draw take you know this? This something I hadn't really considered before and if you're staying independent accommodation, so electing not to stay in the. Official bubble hotels. Then you have to pay for and be responsible for private security to monitor your bubble adherents. which is intense but space slightly reassuring. But goodness me, it's. Any ad, the question remains unanswered of of what the threshold is for that tournament. What's what stage does D stop treating individual cases and start saying as a? Hot Sports that needs to be needs to be shut down and his depressing is that. Prospect. is they they need to have a plan for that scenario?

Tennis is back; James Blake discusses the challenges

"Hello. and. Welcome to the tennis podcast. It is Monday the third of August twenty, twenty and two. There is tennis actual tennis. Not, exhibition tennis competitive tennis featuring plays, we've heard of playing for ranking points and prize money. We haven't seen any of it yet. It's just been. It's just been qualifying for the weekend but at the Palermo WPA event does get underway the main draw in earnest. Later on today David's Matt I, Give You Tennis It has suddenly occurred to me that we were together when tennis was last to think. Remember when we were watching. Dubai. Was it when Jovic Matt. Watch. Kim Clijsters Return in my lounge. Yeah. That feels like a different lifetime. I. Think. I was. Kind of the last weekend of tennis, which was the Davis Cup qualifying which. Never, find run event, which is taking place to eighteen months after they. After they, qualified for it. And the even then there were. It was kind of in the background there were rumbling signs of covid nineteen. I think the airport I was at in Hungary actually had a case and they shut the airport down and but then two days later everything just shut down it's amazing how quickly it happened. Just. Tennis tennis is back and it came back with a tennis way because I think the first day of qualifying in Palermo ended gone to am in the morning. kind of like we're doing this again. Given there's no crowds to worry about a no corporate lunches to around the there is no excuse for that is the because he can stop playing at eight am. And you can play on his you can play on his many courses is as you want or need to I mean how how it is? So tennis is it like comfortingly reassuringly tennis. is finishing yeah but also stupid. We stopped terriers and your we. When you didn't go to the airport because Indian Wells was canceled. You had a fully packed suitcase. State fully packed for some time. What is status? Is still my bedroom floor it hasn't been unpacked is had items removed from I would describe it now as haw full. Because Yeah I've removed you know the old parachutes. Only items only items with an elasticated waste obviously because lockdown But yes, all items with an elasticated waste have been removed from it. And all items which you might have to wear a Nike shoe with awesome accessories they remain in the case. Keeping most of. My bedroom floor. I said I said I would leave it the like Tracy unmade beds for the duration of Tennessee's absence and I'm a woman of my word five months. Yup. There's no. Mouse. No no mouth. Remembering the mouse, the other day and thinking was that dream It was that feels like a different lifetime. The masses in the suitcase I know why inspect that regularly? Don't you don't joke about that because that is that is those are the dark thoughts 'cause my mind when I'm trying to get to sleep. So. Yes. My suitcase remains on unpacked a spouse. Now I should probably technically go to unpack it this afternoon before three PM, which is when right the main draw of Paloma starts in the UK. Literally part of the Furniture Knob? Yes. Okay. I will. I will consider that we WANNA pitch empty. I mean that will just be a pitch of an MTC case day K. Okay, sure and case with just a mouse corpse at the Boscovich. It's It's the content that everyone's waiting for you. Welcome. Seven terms of tennis. News from this week, there's been no sort of big bombshell news. The deadline of the thirty first of July has been put. On the US Open confirming. Wants him four whether or not? It was going ahead? We haven't had that sort of concrete hundred percent confirmation. From the US Open from everything we're hearing as much as the little concerned around a concern around everything we're hearing suggests that with a heck of a lot of regulations in place in and details of those those rules and regulations have been. Leaking sporadically of the last couple of weeks, it will be going ahead. I mean seems to me that the only outstanding detailed in terms of it being categoric is. The quarantine situation on reentering the you and I think I mean in some ways that is I don't know whether that might even be made easier by the fact that it sounds like Madrid isn't going to happen anymore in this is not quite such a rush to get back to to Europe in order to play the very next event.

"In September nineteen forty four thirty one year old N. w. c. p. activist Rosa Parks met met with rape survivor rec- Taylor in Abbeville Alabama local police tried to stem roses advocacy attempting to intimidate and even threaten in her into letting receives case disappear the moment she was back in Montgomery Rosa returned to the end of Lacey Pe- office and explained the encounter counter to their President Edgar Nixon in response to the police's tactics. Rosa and Nixon founded the committee for equal justice for the rights of Mrs Mrs Resea- Taylor as subgroup of the N. double. ACP This committee was comprised of a dozen leading black activists that were dedicated to making taking Taylor story public knowledge. They sent dozens of letters to the office of Alabama Governor Chauncey sparks urging him take the case to trial in one letter Rosa wrote. I know that you will not fail to let the people of Alabama know that there is aqel justice for all citizens roses efforts paid off and the incident was picked up by local newspapers then by press around the nation by February of nineteen forty five Alabama. Governor sparks was forced to take action. He reluctantly agreed to launch a second can special grand jury investigation into the crime but the special jury ultimately brought no charges against the accused rapists. Rosa was furious all her efforts had stirred up public support an outrage but Taylor still couldn't secure justice one by one. The frustrations of dealing with inequality on a daily basis started to build up a year earlier. Rosa Rosa had had a memorable encounter of her own. The Montgomery bus system was becoming a lightning rod for political controversy in part because of the extreme lengths they went to in the name of segregation for example bus tickets could only be purchased at the front of the vehicle meaning meaning all riders had to use the front doors to buy their ticket but Montgomery buses also had segregated entrances one for white people at the front and and another for black passengers at the back when a black person wanted to take the bus she'd have to board at the front purchaser ticket then and leave and re board through the back doors. The ridiculous policy served no practical purpose. It was only there to embarrass an inconvenience black black riders on a rainy day in nineteen forty-three. Rosa boarded a public bus in downtown. Montgomery reluctant to go back out into the rain mm-hmm. She instead walked directly back to a seat without exiting and re entering through the back door. The driver James F Blake was is infuriated. He ordered Rosa to exit and re enter through her designated entrance twice. Rosa refused so oh blake grab. Rosa dragged her outside and threw out into the rain before she had a chance to process what had happened. The bus pulled away a stranding her. The whole ordeal was incredibly traumatizing for Rosa in her autobiography she wrote. I never wanted wanted to be on that man's bus again after that. I made a point of looking at who was driving the bus before I got on. I didn't want any more run. INS is with that mean. One Rosa wasn't the only person who is sick and tired of discrimination on the buses in nineteen fifty five fifteen year old girl named Claudette Colvin was riding the bus home from Booker T. Washington high school in Montgomery. The bus was was crowded that day and cove and was asked to stand so a white woman could take her seat. Kovin refused the bus driver ordered cove and and to get up but Kovin held her ground this escalated to the point that the police were called and Coleman was arrested at at that time Montgomery had several contradictory laws regarding segregation a symptom of the push and pull between civil rights activists and the racist cyst establishment so one law not only permitted but required the bus driver to have cloven arrested while another protected cove ines right it to any seat. She wanted the N. double. ACP had long been looking for an opportunity to challenge the pro segregation laws and have them formally formerly overturned in Co.. WTN's arrests seemed like a perfect opportunity to bring Jim Crow all the way before the Supreme Court however the Organization soon learned that the teenage Kovin was pregnant out of wedlock. This should have had nothing to do with her case but at the end of the Lacey Pe- feared that juries would be less sympathetic to an unmarried mother with stakes so high they didn't WanNa take any chances chances the organization raised funds for coal WTN's defense but chose not to try to make her the new face of racial inequality. They'd have to wait for the next arrest nine months later on December first nineteen fifty five forty two year old Rosa parks boarded Ed bus number two eight five seven. It was about six. PM and she was on her way home from work at the Montgomery Fair Department Store. She paid her affair and sat down in an empty seat in the back section. She wasn't paying much attention as she boarded and didn't notice that the driver was was James F Blake the same driver who'd kicked her off the bus the previous year for not using the back door for the next three stops the bus traveled along its normal route more passengers got on and the bus slowly filled up by the time the the bus reached its third stop outside the Empire Theater. The whites only section at the front of the bus was over capacity. There was no seat for one. The white passengers in the front so blake stopped the bus and told the first row of black passengers to stand up so he could make a new row for the white writers. He said Y'all better make it light on yourself and let me have those seats. Rosa hadn't planned to make a stand that day but for whatever reason something snapped she later explained. I was not tired physically no more tired than I usually was. At the end of a working day how old I was forty two. No the only tired I was tired of giving in the rear of the black passengers stood up up Rosa didn't she later wrote when that white driver stepped back toward us when he waved his hand and ordered us up and out of our seats. I I felt a determination cover. My Body like a quilt on a winter night. Rosa remained in her seat staring at the driver. Offer Blake squinted back at her. He asked her again. Why don't you stand up. She replied. I don't think I should have to stand up then. She moved to the window seat. Further away from the Isle Lake asked her again if she was going to stand up Rosa again refused blake threatened to call the police. Rosa responded you do that so blake aac place the call while they waited. Roseau remained firmly planted in her seat. She tried to ignore the judgmental glares from the other. The riders assured that she was in the right eventually. Two policemen arrived at the scene. Blake explained the situation and Rosa was was charged with violating chapter six section eleven the Montgomery City code which enforce the segregation of public buses. They took her off the bus and drove her downtown to police headquarters along the way. She asked one of the policemen. Why do you push us around around. The officers. Response was simply. I don't know but the law's the law and your under arrest. Rosa was allowed one call at the station which he made to her husband Raymond. She told him that she had been given even a court date on December. Fifth Raymond was worried but he was also proud of his wife from making stand he promised her he would find the bail money to get her out of jail soon N. double. ACP Chapter President Edgar Nixon arrived the same night Rosa was sent to jail AOL Edgar paid her bail and had her released by then word of Rosa Parks arrest had spread to most of Alabama's black population. Rosa was an upstanding member of the community in many were astounded that she of all people would be arrested for such a minor offence offense. Edgar saw this anger in his community as an opportunity to get people mobilized later that night he visited the parks home and explained a plan to Rosa she could be the face of a new activist movement and as Rosa listened to Edgar's pitch. She felt hope spring in her chest. She was about to spark the historic. Montgomery bus boycott up next. We'll hear how roses work transformed the civil rights movement now back to the story. The black community in Montgomery Alabama was outraged following Rosa parks arrest on December first nineteen fifty five the N. double A. C. P. wanted to capitalize on roses case raising awareness as they tried to overturn Montgomery's segregation.

Daniil Medvedev claims first Masters title in Cincinatti

"The world's best men's tennis player at least at this moment is deal medvedev going into last week. The twenty-three-year-old russian had made two consecutive tournament finals here in washington d._c. And then in montreal then this past week in cincinnati he we used huge first and second serves and really solid for hands back ends to beat world number-one electric in the semi finals and divvied viewed goffin in the final to win the biggest title of his career and move up to a career-high number five in the world behind only jovic rafael nidal roger federer and dominic team stephens hero. The eighth ranked stefanos citybus. Thank you is owen foreign his career against gets medvedev seats apostol ben rothenberg last week than medvedev plays sloppy adding. It's good sloppy. He can make you miss without your understanding how you just missed you. Miss shots that you don't mess. That's deep kind of. I watched medvedev in d._c. So i have a good sense of how well the dude is playing but i it didn't know before i saw a pretty oblique tweet on sunday. Is that three years ago medvedev was defaulted from a match on the second tier challenger tour. You're in a match which was played on clay and savannah georgia medvedev. Who was then ranked number. Two hundred sixty in the world was playing donald young young as a black american can player in the first at the chair umpire. A black woman in sandy franch went down to the court to check the ball mark on shot medvedev hit. There was close to the sideline. She called the ball out giving young the point which led medvedev mark. I know that you are friends. I am sure about it. After the game was over french called over tournament supervisor advisor medvedev was quickly defaulted for what the united states tennis association later referred to as questioning the impartiality of the umpire based on her race. There is unfortunately precedent for that incident in two thousand one. Australian lleyton hewitt claimed that a black line judge at the u._s. Open was calling foot-faults on him to to favor hewitt's black opponent american james blake. I've only been foot-faulted of one end. Look at him. Look at him. Look at him. Mate hugh had said look at him. I and you will tell me what the similarity is. Get him off. The court. Look at what he's done. Hewitt was not penalized during a match or afterwards the u._s. Us open tournament director brian earley who you may remember as the guy who came on the court during last year's yes open final when serena williams demanded to speak to the terminent director during her her conflict with chair umpire carlos ramos early ruled that there was no violation of quote grand slam code of conduct and that quote the evidence events was inconclusive as to the intent of mr hewitt's remarks to the chair umpire q._a. for his part said i come from a multicultural country. I'm not racial any way at all. Though hewitt didn't get sanctioned. John mcenroe called his on-court statement unforgivable. It has indeed followed hewitt for his whole career areo still hear people mention it when hewitt's name comes up medvedev's words have gotten less attention because they came in a minor league event probably also because he wasn't yet well known when it happened as far as i know medvedev has never commented on this <hes> the incident did get brought up in two thousand seventeen when at wimbledon medvedev eh opened his wallet and started throwing coins at the base of the umpire's chair to make a not so subtle point about the empires bias alleged bias towards his opponent it

I'm sure they don't even want to go seven. They would rather win six. Milwaukee. Boston would be fun seven for everyone. Not makes so many heart attacks. Yeah. Had enjoy. But.

And then by the time he's like an almost like an distressed asset when he gets to Houston in two thousand sixteen and all of a sudden, then the minute start to click new seventy five game sixty nine games, sixty eight games. And but you're still seeing like he's more of the spacer. He's more of the like somebody else breaks down the defense and kicks to him. And then he attacks against them being sort of shuffled up. He's never not really like the primary guy actually doing that breaking down or getting the usage at that same level be and nor nor should he have been in a team with harden like that. But do you d- you watch giver, flip channels when the all America gives around and watch us? All oh, you mean like McDonald's games? Yeah. I not really. But I I know that when he was when he was coming out, and he was going Indiana. It was like this guy's revolutionary, right? Yeah. And the guys from that era. I think you know, you had three years in a row where Durant was in the six game like his. Class and then Gordon's class was oh seven and then the oh a class were all the guys that were in the draft, basically. But the o seven game is is fascinating. Because there's a bunch of good guys in it. And for some reason when they pick the teams, so this is the two thousand seven east team the players, you would know honor our JJ Hickson. Johnny Flynn, Dante green Kosta Kufa's OJ. Mayo nNcholas and Patrick Patterson say all right. I know some of those guys right Dante who believe when the first round of the big three draft last night.

So quickly on unto rant who's been out of his mind here for two weeks and this happens every so often with him. He's you know, one of the best twelve to fourteen guys ever. He is one of the best four forwards ever. And every once in a while he'll go on a hot streak, computer. Like, whoa. You know, who's really good? Kevin. Oh my God. Well, he's really good, man. He's one of the best offensive players. We've had why do people constantly have to be reminded that? Kevin Durant is one of the best basketball players who ever had. What is it about him?

So we wanted to skip to the thirteen or the real dramas I want I want to address one thing jer. Jodi, explain Michael bear pick. I guess. Oh, no, not yet. Okay. Not yet. Okay. Kate you Acadian Kawais the forwards with. Yes. Okay. So we're we're set there. Yeah. Have you said you said we had the same other than I have kyri Damian Lillard in Durant Colli Leonard and beat right? Okay. Kyri is an interesting choice in this regard. Statistically, there is no argument. He deserves second team are sure. And some of them seen him play a lot. This year is played at a higher level than I've ever seen employees. There will be voters. And I know some of them who are going to live him off second team because of the drama. He is created within Boston. And there's some people there's some people who are gonna leave author team. I think for that. I thought about it discussed it, and I I actually respect that. I understand that. I factor that stuff in. I think it's important to think about. Anthony Davis is not going to make anybody who's all in BAT. Now. That's an extreme example. Right. Jimmy Butler is not gonna make it. He deserve it. Anyway. Right. But those are extreme exists factor for people that I think it's a fact, but to me kyri has outplayed all these other guards. Yeah. So dramatically. Here's just one stat the last we know their offense is dead without and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, right shooting numbers. You can read them off shore the last three minutes of gains when the scores within three points kyri is twenty nine of forty nine from the floor that fifty nine percent and unless forty six in fifty minutes, and the thing that makes it even more impressive as somebody who sees them a lot is that don't really have another option like in the last few minutes of games. It's basically we give kyri the ball not. They don't have other options, but their offense essentially, give me the ball and get out of the way and like Hari make place, right? And so to your point if you're going to be twenty nine for forty nine in that situation when everybody knows it's coming on top of. It. I mean, it's it's been incredibly impressive. And to your point. I think kyri on his play definitely deserves second team in while the thirteen guards are probably the hardest on VH rice of ever had. Which will get to in a minute. I think he is clearly with Lillard on the second team on. Yeah. He's the fourth guard like Lillard above him, right? For all the cultural yellow sitting reasons are being alluded to if you wanted to put him third team. I don't I mean, I think he has done damage inside that locker room or his free. It's hard to separate sometimes a player in a player's situation. So like what his free agency have inevitably. 'cause like his Kev is also just a lot of the Celtics locker room. That are weird. Yeah. Has Kevin Durant done damage to the warriors? Just by being a noncommittal free. Right. That's not fair. It's not fair. No Kyrie's had other stuff. Evan. I'm going to give you my third team. Yeah. Third NBA, which is the toughest part of the ballot. My guards. Our Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal. Okay. My full words. Okay. Are the Brian James and Blake Griffin K?

"He still has more time to do that. But that that blinds comment because he's expected to be in camp with the as who drafted him in the first round last year and gave him over four and a half million bucks is a signing bonus on February fifteenth the NFL combine is February twenty sixth. He's now projected to be a first round pick. According to some NFL executives even though he'd be the shortest quarterback in the NFL since Doug Flutie at five nine, and everyone's got an opinion on what he should do. I think that's kind of silly because these are high class problems. He's gonna make an insane amount of money through endorsements. He's got to do one or the other because you can't be a quarterback in play two sports doesn't really work that way. And. The scrutiny is going to be on him either way and the as are considering ponying up ponying up even more money and using a forty man roster. Spot just to keep him in baseball and major league baseball so badly wants to get a Heisman Trophy winner to choose baseball over football that they sent marketing representatives to the meeting that the as had with their draft pick because they think Murray could be really good for the business of baseball. But if he can be a starting quarterback in the NFL the fame of being one of the thirty two in the NFL as a Heisman Trophy winner. Who was a first round pick in baseball. That's a level of fame that baseball just plainly cannot give you Bryce Harper can make more money. You can make more money playing baseball than football. That's undeniable. You can't be more famous. Not anymore. Like that air of baseball is gone whose most famous player in baseball, Bryce Harper. He's not as famous as the top ten quarterback's probably in the NFL is just a different level of fame. But there I am projecting my own sensibilities, maybe collar Murray doesn't care about fame. Maybe he's worried about CTE. Maybe he wants guaranteed contracts. Maybe football's is true love, and he doesn't care that. He's more of a long shot because of his height. Maybe baseball is true up. Maybe he thinks he'll be able to play both. I have no idea. What I do know is there's no wrong decision here. Now, if he busts out of the sport that he chooses, okay, fine. But that'll be playing the result where he sits right now. NFL teams are saying first round pick baseball already made him first round pick both options make him generational wealthy. And people are just projecting weird stuff on them as if there is a wrong decision right now. And there's not eight five five two one two four CBS Miguel in Portland seems the. Disagree miguel. Thanks for calling the Dante Parkin show. Thanks for having me. Thanks for taking my call real quick. So a comparison he was the number four sick, right and baseball. I think ninth. Nice getting let's say two thousand fourteen Michael Conforto, Oregon state outfielder. He was sick same agent. He got three million dollar signing bonus and went straight to the majors since then his salary is only two hundred thousand just under four hundred thousand five hundred thousand six hundred thousand just for about five years. All right. Okay. And he went straight to the big leagues. All right. He went straight there fake highway doesn't play football. They you know, four years in. Let's see what he's really. But that's Marcus mariota. James? Winston Blake Broncos. Does what's going to happen? Then you're going to get paid twenty million dollars five year option. There you go. If you want money. Hey, go football. No, no one's gonna hate. You knew what you left you'll be good either way. But if you want money say, go football. All right, man. I appreciate you. But the football contract isn't guaranteed and the baseball contract is you're right. The money that the sport would give Cuyler Murray as a first round pick in football is actually more than baseball. And he gets to go to an NFL city instead of Stockton single a ball wherever the hell that is in the system. So. If it's me. Danny parkin's. Right. I I I like football more than baseball. Be it's safer than really it's ever been to play quarterback. So I wouldn't be too worried about that. I'd go for the money and the fame and being twenty two and twenty three years old and living in a cool NFL city as opposed to riding buses for the next few years in the minor leagues. But those are my sensibilities because if Cuyler Murray turns into a gold glove caliber center fielder who gets on base forty percent of the time. Lorenzo Cain signed a where he signed five years eighty million bucks with the Milwaukee Brewers Lorenzo canes. The top forty player in major league baseball. Eighty million guaranteed to not get tackled. Pretty pretty good. So you're right short-term first round pick in the NFL more money. But what if you slipped to the second round, then it's less money, and you're getting hit and the team's not as committed to you and the fifth year options, not Asai. But I don't know if money's the number one thing what I keep thinking about is very simple question, which will make you happier. That that simple. What will make you happier? Do that sport. You're going to be financially secure either way. Eight five five two one two four CBS Mike in San Fran. You're on The Danny Parkin show. Thanks for calling me. Right. Yeah. I think I'm closer to your point of view on this. Just some names maybe like say PJ Upton Charlie Blackmon, those guys are going to be earning seven figures eight figures fairly early in their career and like you say if they make it to their tenth or twelfth year. It's likely they'll get as much money overall or he'll get just as much money overall. As bill. No more. I think the one area that I'm not sure you're putting as much risk on has. There is is what do you tell the NFL teams? In other words, I I would be happy to see him go through the combine go to spring training play a month or so in a minor league city see what he thinks baseball, and then decide whether to actually sign with whoever drafts him. But if you tell an NFL team that you'll go in the fourth round. So I don't know how to get around that, you know, without making a commitment to the NFL team that you're not gonna play baseball under any circumstances. He can't. It's just that's already come and gone. He was drafted as have his baseball rights, even if he goes and plays football. And I appreciate the call. And then in three years, he gives up football the as still have his rights. His service time clock hasn't started. So. The Oakland A's have the draft rights Cuyler Murray the baseball player, and if he is going to play baseball football teams not gonna draft him. So that's why he's gotta make a decision right now. Now, he could delay baseball. Give football shot. And if it doesn't work try to start a professional baseball career at twenty five twenty six years old. He could try that. Or in theory. He could delay a football career and go play for the as in see if he works up the ladder quickly and how he's just any professional baseball. And then we've that and go start of football career, but he wouldn't have to enter the draft. Then then he would just be signing as a as a free agent. So that's why he's gotta make a decision relatively soon. Because no football team is going to draft him to be a quarterback. If he's also playing baseball. He's going to have to start training for one of his professional gigs sooner than later. But that's why this whole thing is so fascinating. We'll keep hearing from you put a bow on.

I wanted to watch this moment here we're gonna freeze it off the rebound all five rockets are trying to stop you on us. And they can't do it. There's nothing you can do he sits eleven look at this crazy athleticism. There's a reason why he's one of the top players in the world, very next possession hardened. There's the patented jump back with the he leads the league and stuff back. You know that George hill you have to stay up on that force them to be a two point four force into drive. Handles are fun to watch rockets around nine now, ten seconds on the half of the rocket lead is five although. Push off greenie if it doesn't matter the once you allow him to find his rhythm. That's where you're done. He was six at sixteen for three rockets at any point fourth quarter. Now, the bucks lead is and what happens almost looked like he did it on purpose. Let's hear from harden afterwards on the whack to the head so noisy covering hurt. I don't even know why these ball somehow found came back into his hands. And I know how having. Bucks up. Fifteen. I can't believe he just got up. To get him out of the game. You gotta hit him in heaven with asking. Yes, anyone's up stick at one Janas face on the other end. And so the rockets are down ten here, we go next possession Hardin again from the wing rockets within seven and they're working their way back onto Ford ago Janas watches nice feed for Bledsoe who scored ten bucks backup seven next possession. The other way, we go harden. No. But he's going to get it back and watch him throwing it up and Clint cappella throwing it down and cappella have to be an author, but how about that bucket? Wind down for James harden cappella eighteen points, thirteen boards under three minutes to play now. Same score pardon around brogden. Yes. Forty two points eleven board six assists for hardened rockets down just three but under a minutes ago. And there we go the bucks with footed away, honest with the dagger. He scored twenty seven points twenty one boards five cysts, and he wins the showdown. For me was just another game. While they winning to be honest with you, I know by winning on doing whatever it takes out there and help you see may just leaving everything on the Florida everything it sells on how North American long us. But I just he wants to get around that pain, and it's pretty difficult. Let's slow down a little bit. But overall of the four quarters of the game, we we we put our butts off in.

Tariffs threaten Apple's China success

"Apple shares have been trending down since President Trump warned. Last Friday that he was ready to slap tariffs on virtually all Chinese imports. KCBS is Mike HOGAN said the tech sector would be one of the hardest hit. Apple shares started tumbling after President Trump tweeted that the tech giant should make products in the US if it wanted to avoid tariffs on Chinese imports tech experts say the tweet shows the president doesn't understand how the supply chain works, for example. If you look at something like Apple's air pods. These components that they get are strung out all over not only China, but other parts of Asia that are then put together, and then manufactured over there. Tech ATL is Tim Barrett with creative strategy says despite being impractical producing iphones in the US would make them prohibitively expensive.
