Disclaimer i am a nets fan but nets proper from new jersey. Not one of these You know. Johnny come lately fans that just because kevin durant is here all of a sudden. Everyone's wearing you know New brooklyn nets jersey in new york. what's going on with you. Hi how's how's basketball life. How is your life before we even get into. Who how you dealing with kobe. Howard you dealing with the house your family dealing kovin is everyone healthy. You know at this point is healthy The most lately come you know. It's been weird teddy though with the nba. Season starting literally in the middle of december I was one of the few people in the world that said that i didn't want to sing. Starts january that we can enjoy the holidays with my daughter. Who's here from florida. So that's why you know. I've been you know i've been wanting to do your show like you know your dad just like i. Am you know the time you get with. Your little ones is the most important time. And so i haven't seen my daughter says the end of june so these first couple of days with her i of went off the grid but i gotta get back. Started because tuesday's is opening night so you know we're getting ready and then covering the charlotte hornets With a mela ball has been very very fun in denver and the last month and a half or so have there been lavar ball citing with you know not yet we haven't been inside the arena yet I have not heard of a lavar being here yet. not sure what's going to happen But you know it's a different vibe here in charlotte extremely exciting up here Megan go back to saturday's first game. You know ten rebounds four assists a couple of assists were sportscenter worthy and then last night. guys first couple of baskets he at twelve last night To his assists last night were beautiful. Values one off the backboard. Sa- jalen mcdaniels and the three hundred miles bridges where he caught miles on his opposite hand for now you so it's exciting cannot wait to be in the building. I can't wait for the fans to be in the building. Because it's something so electrifying moment up here now. I can't. I can only imagine and this is not a knock or slight but small market team like charlotte doing really big thing this off season. You know it's. I don't know if it's from the profit sharing or you know But it seems like the great one michael jordan gone off the schneide and Signed a few players we know. He wound guy. Gordon hayward in the sign and trade That allow boston. Arguably the as we call ted thanos the potential thanos part of the What do you call on the wrist. i just got the final gauntlet peace potentially so Jordan went out and got. Hey we're to some people as overpayment. A lot of people don't like the salary but sometimes you guys spend money if you like you said small-market teams don't go out and get major free. Agents says we learned. Today you know a lot of the biggest fishing next. Summer's free agency will. Are there any more jaanus on the extension Ban side his extension. Jason tatum Donovan mitchell dear. Lebron anthony davis paul. George allowed the guys that would have been free agents in august or july. Whatever the season ends or will not be on the table so charlotte spent the money. And hey you know what gordon hayward looks looks really released. Bri- he looks like he's backing into utah. Gordon hayward mo- not boston. He looks like the utah. Gordon hayward that we saw that was an all star. You know not short time ago. So exciting Is really can this team. Put it all together They're not championship. I don't think so. But if they make the the playing game and potentially make the playoffs and make some noise they still have just about a little bit under twenty five dollars summer. Who knows it could be that final piece you need. I think i said to you last night via text message. I said as long as they're competitive. I think the fan base is going to really really Surround him and support him. The fan base is just want somebody that people will respect. And nothing gets kemba walker. You know kim. Milwaukee got more respect when he was in boston in the doesn't charlotte and all the years he put into charlotte. You know ted. I don't think charlotte's had a player of this magnitude lamelo ball with a media presence ted or tension. We're going back to alonzo mourning. And larry johnson nothing aaron. Nothing is a mek okafor. Gerald wallace in those guys the l. j. zoe in mugs era until now charlotte hasn't had that guy and lamelo ball steps in. The court was six million followers on instagram and three hours on twitter. And you know every time lamelo says something it's like even though he's a very is a mad very short words and i've learned this from the very beginning short words he has a presence around him and the more he smiling the more he looks good on the court is only going to be good things in charlotte and so i think the franchise deserves to have something it's been would you. Would you approve of the job. Mitch cup jack is doing with the hornets. I mean he came into a situation. What was a bad cap situation. the only thing that you know people will be upset about is how they did a handle nichols between contract. It's the they stretched it. So it's nine million over the next couple of seasons so it's gonna be three years. This show pay a nine million dead cap space. But so far. Mitch hasn't done too much. He was really trying to untangled what we're all rich. Oh ajay's borrego was his first hiring he's been solid. I mean when you say oh guy had twenty three wins a solid remember. This was a rebuilding job and this was a wrap for youth and development. And if you really want to look at the success of the hornets look what they've done in the second round they got devante grammar the second round. Who is you know should have been the most improved player in the league league. Or she got more votes in by the way They've done well with guys. Like coding artan and kayla martin. Two guys that were unheralded. One was the second round pick was undrafted. Free agent there now in the rotation. They hit big pj washington. I know it's hard to hit a guy in the mid lottery and he did well so they've done well so far. I mean nothing has been. You know out of the ballpark but ted your baseball guy. You don't need home runs to win every game. Sometimes though singles and doubles driving runs just as much as a long ball. So they've done well but what they have and i'm excited. It's exciting time. What's so let's get to you the eight hundred pound gorilla in the room and we're not talking about the means of James harden tonight on our twitter The question i had for you earlier we hear james harden is unhappy. the the. there's a plethora reasons why he's unhappy. Tell me what competitors teams would actually be interested in james harden a thirty one year old games harding with contracts. I don't know maybe hundred and thirty hundred and forty million million less For a very bold dominates player. I mean there's one thing about that is you're not you. you list. All what he is but one thing he did not list. He's as players in the entire. Nba he's a guy that even though he is bald dominant a couple years ago averaged right around easter average eight and a half nine six two game on a nightly basis. We has the ball in hand so he does get his teammates. Involved his mvp ted. I mean they were almost triple double years you know. And for his ball dominance years he still dynamic offensive player and still grabs rebounds. Of course you know you have to look at the philadelphia seventy sixers 'cause the daryl morey combination If they do trade. Ben simmons you still have hardened be together. That's still tap. I mean that's that's old school. Kobe shack type situation. Not be like that. But it's that same dynamic dominant big guy with an outstanding perimeter player that's how it works Of course you know like teams like the knicks will be interested because new york ixnay want somebody somebody to today's. I gotta jump in here. Danny and say today's big blow with janas. I if you're year are the knicks. Management leon rosen company. You're like what do we do. Because we've got a ton of money and still even worldwide west. It seems like known still wanna to come there. Well ted john. S isn't kentucky guy so worldwide westwood will become worldwide western kentucky. Guys have free agency that's Like cry cross town so I think that's the first. But i think when you look at like workin james harden go. I think the best fit if he has moved anywhere. Beyond which had is the denver nuggets. I love james harden with the denver nuggets. You can put him in jamal. Murray together. and what denver's what the rock is asking for his. You're asking for a young star. They want a franchise building blocks. They wanna cornerstone peace they wanna be able to acquire what draft picks they offered the ass reportedly for three first rounders with ben simmons in a deal with the sixers. So you're gonna have to acquire first round picks and also going to have to acquire guys that can be able to put the pieces around for the future so if you look at the denver nuggets for example michael porter jr. is arguably one of the most exciting most interesting players in the nba. He's six foot ten ted in college high school he was the most dominant player. High school was national. I think the best player high school the national player of the year Up in seattle the seattle area he went to missouri was the guy that was supposed to missouri program around hurt. His back spends first year on the shelf but he said the draft because the back injury. we saw. How talented you was. We heard about the stories in practice that he was just the best player in practice looking better than the guys on the denver roster include nicole. Kitchen and jamal murray suggestions and we lost danny four. All right listen you got supplier of technology no new when you look at the nuggets. The way constraints say you can get michael porter junior And that's a that's a franchise building block now. You don't need point guard because they just acquired jarwal they just got christian win the off season. You got demarcus cousins. So if you're getting gary harris back who's a very solid shooting guard. That replaces james harden his position also at the same time. Listen if you're looking for an intriguing. Prospect ted your old school. Manute bol his kid. Noble seven footer from it play ball at oregon for a couple of months is talented intriguing prospect. Or you can go after will barton. There are plenty of things that you can do to pull this off. I think the nuggets are a team that if they really could pull this off. I think it'd be a great favor. James harden outside of that. It's hard to match james harden because either a you can't trim to washington for bradley beal because he just left russell westbrook right. You can't them to phoenix for example with for devon booker because it doesn't make sense what dallas you can't put james harden together to save core. Does it doesn't make logical sense in every other team is not a championship team. You can't put them in portland because damian lillard. That's not going to work out. All the all available places for james harden and golden state makes absolutely no sense because even with klay thompson being out for the entire season you still to deal with klay thompson next summer. How's that going to work. Especially with the salary cap. Gymnastics and ted last heard was the milwaukee bucks. The buck's has gave away all their first rounders. The drew holidays right. So that means what you're gonna end up. Trading khris middleton and potentially drew holiday for james harden. 'cause i was about to say how soon could they turn a jrue holiday around and ship them out until like december or something like that would normally. It's december in a regular year. I would probably say. I think valentine's day might be the quickest. You can flip your holiday. But here's the they would. Drew holiday holiday brings the the the milwaukee bucks something they don't have enough get eric bledsoe but drew holidays. A twenty point game score and can get twenty points easily. He's also a guy that can play both guard positions and ted. He is a player. That doesn't have to be the number one you remember. He left new orleans. Grand ingraham's twenty. Five twenty games An all-star last year and they had zion and they had gone so drew holidays. I have to be a number one option and played exc- honest. You don't have to be one for drew. Holiday does bring the fact that he locked down in the second half. He's a lockdown defender especially with the certain team that starting to get healthy out in In your neck of the woods getting healthy you need all the defensive player you can get for a playoff series with a guy with a team. That's kind of loaded in the in the tri-state area. I don't mean saint john's basketball or seton hall. I'm gonna tell you this much in regards to james harden The first thing i think of is key. James harden away from brooklyn at all costs. You don't want that because you would severely had the guts team And then you would have the problem of hardened durant's ankari you put those three together if you're playing nba two k. Listen if you put you bitch who came together. It's a it's a great resource uk because you can't stop them but in real life. Those three with a brand new head. Coach steve nash with mike. D'antoni offense coordinator per se. That sounds like an offensive dream but a defensive nightmare and the only way. If you're brooklyn that she would consider trading for james harden. If you don't believe kevin durant healthy now as we saw over the weekend and his limits play on on a sunday night. Kevin durant looks healthy. He looks angry. He looks irritated as raider hoop. So i gotta call you out because you said ted no more than five minutes you know what no i can. I can be calling off my things reason. Why says because when you make kelly's injury you listen to some of the things that kevin said about how he felt. He didn't feel like he was at himself. But hey what we learned over. The weekend is at eighty percent or eighty five percent. Kevin durant is still better than ninety five percent of the nba In brooklyn brooklyn place. Right now where it's head. You put this team together. And with i'm talking without james harden you put this team the way the roster's constructed. If kirby goes down. Spencer din was right there. Okay kerris levert can be the third score that you need is going to start his growth. A potential james harden type situation later. I can see happening. Joe harris can shoot the basketball. You have a very good dynamic. Duo with jordan and jerry allen at center all you do is figure this out and durant is longest kyri. Let's direct control the end of game situations the nets. I don't know of a team in the eastern conference can beat the nets. And i love miami love milwaukee. but that's just way too much firepower. It's way too much. Say team could beat the nets in the eastern conference outside of the nets. it would and injuries injury. I think there's only one team is one thing that can beat them that and that's either injuries or cogut. As long as as long as kevin durant is healthy and kyrie irvings healthy. It's hard to beat them. Milwaukee's talented but milwaukee lost alive is depths boston. I want to stop you for a second one. I'd give a couple of shots. The pablo Brentwood joseph cohen said. Drew can ball off. Drew can play off. The ball might One of our favorites might patent to drew. Fits way better than eric. Bledsoe and milwaukee he also follows up with brooklyn with harden irving durant is more entertaining than a real housewives of the academy and drama. There's going to be thick regardless. I think the with just durant and kyrie before we go into an had you even touch boston Curry comments. I know it might put you in a funny situation But i'm gonna say from kyrie make any comments about pawns not talking to the media and then you know of course being fined twenty five thousand dollars. That's like a slap on the wrist for multi millionaire But he makes the turn around. His perspective is going to be the season is he going to be. Is he going to be ready to play ball with the media or is it going to be You know touching girls. I honestly think that you know when in in what you see having in time is it's been a situation. Where a lot of time carvings case. When he speaks you know if he speaks people criticize if he doesn't speak people criticize he's at this point his career wherever he says. It's going to be one way or the other. It doesn't make sense you know he's gonna have his people saying now. Mind you some of the things korea said does it make sense either okay. We're now. I'm not saying that. Everything he says is right but at the same time he does put himself in these situations with some of his actions and some of his some of the things he says now what happens is if he comes out there and balls out in brooklyn the then. Guess what everything he says. The media doesn't exist going go back. Yes if kyrie irving looks like the car mean that was in cleveland. I'm talking on the court. The year they won the championship. He's hitting shots. He is being the true. Robin to kevin durant batman. Then guess what in brooklyn destroys eastern conference which potentially could happen think s. What's had all. This is all watering the bridge. But a brooklyn gets off to a slow start in and he still not speaking to the media and kevin durant speaking the media on a regular basis. The fines will start coming. It'll start piling up. And then we might have a marshawn lynch situations. He might answer every question with I'm happy to be here. Okay listen right you know and the more at one of more calm. One of them were interesting. Things with steve nash. The other day speaking about you know kyri in the media situation he says i really haven't addressed cari about the media situation because kyrie's been such a great person and camp he's been he's been a leader in camp. He's been doing what we ask him to do. He's been following the system and he's you know joining way. He needs to in court so anything off the court. I don't need to worry about it and to be honest with you. Listen he's not hurting anybody. Yes i'm a member of the media. If he doesn't talk it is what is what can i do. I can only write stories. On what i write. You know with carey says something. It's a story if he scores five points. It's also a story so you know it's the catch me. I mean you know. I get i get why people especially people were millionaires. Just supposed to talk another night. Do you go to your job and talk every day. no you'll have to. Do you have to answer questions your job every day. it is what it is. He gets paid to put the ball in the basket. Cell jerseys sell tickets and win championships. That's what he gets. Paid max dollars for anything else to quote the saying is uncivilized. That's all is. And so. I said i don't agree with half the stuff. He says a lot of cases but people twists words he can say is greenhouse i- but the it gets twisted as saying that he loved he doesn't like green ninja turtles and he didn't say look like everything green so i get where he's coming from. You know. I hope the stance will often and i'm sure would enough finds he will shorten his stance and then listen. We can start getting short comedy cari all season. But i don't think this Media not speaking last long they will make him talk eventually that paycheck though. Twenty five thousand dollar ted. But just think about this you keep filing the nba. They're gonna hit you More and more. I mean now. The obligations speech the media. It's a. it's an interesting thing with that so players in kyrie's case why he had to speak so much last couple years because he's been hurt. Y'all got dressed in media but one time a week when you hurt. And that's at the team's discretion so he's been hurt for the last couple of years. Yeah talk his after. I think he's in the best possible situation with being the best number two in the league. And you have a guy. Kevin durant when he says something is Kevin rod so you have two guys who are lightning rods were misunderstood by the media and makes it perfect. So i guess i don't think kyri will. I don't think this whole not speaking last long because the nba will his paycheck. Especially now with there's no fans in the stands. There is no no revenue to be drawn in and everything players do and say the teams are basically banking on it. So i think i will say kyri kyrenia start speaking the media. Probably after the first of the year. I still but feigns still purchase jerseys of course because ten at night come on. He's got the best handle the nba. So what would you expect. People love people. Love kyri on the court is i. I also i compare it to kind of like lebron james. Someone's i said compare in subways. Don't make sample of people of people love on court. Lebron but don't like awkward. Iran is the same. Tim curry urban people. Love kyri when he's on the court but when he's off the court it is what it is. Charles barkley was the same way. So i want you to sell to me. I'm a boston celtic fan for the next five minutes. Sell james harden on the celtics Israel simple jason. Tatum and james harden be a great dynamic duo but my only concern is i would rather have jalen brown. Who's a little bit less a little bit more defensively than anything about james harden. Listen james harden will be the score that you to go into battle and Escort type situation if you need a guy. He'll get buckets make place. That's great I don't like the fit personally. I liked the team the way the way set up in ways now I just hope kemba walker saves healthy. But i'm not big on my big on james harden in boston. I'm really not. I don't like the fit. But i know. Danny age has been going whale hunting for the longest and you had like i said the the the stone i figured out. I'll give you his pocket. Which is a twenty-seven the largest trae exception the history of the nba tag which means twenty seven twenty seven and a half million that he can go. Acquire any contract with that up to twenty seven and a half million and doesn't count against the salary cap so basically a twenty seven and a half million dollars guy jail free card four for this year. They have twelve months to use it from the day of the trade. Okay what does it cover. Does it cover just one year. you have to. You have to make the money work going on. You have to have the you have to be able to absorb during that timeframe the contract last if they wanted to go trade for kevin love they can go for kevin love. If they wanted to know for andre drummond they can trade for it. Now my is up to the team where they wanna sit there and get destroy lit wrong with with the luxury tax. You know if you're boston they got tristan thompson. What happens if he's not healthy. You can go get andre drummond. Who probably should be traded from cleveland sometime. Before the end of the week. I think so for next couple weeks you can go get ted. If somebody gets hurt you can go. Acquire somebody's the golden state. Warriors used their trade exception to go get kill you bright when klay thompson went down so they when a win us that you know team sometimes use exception but ted. There's a reason why. Boston waited until the last minute to pull the straight off just so that they can get that exception so what. They gave way a budget. Second round picks that they'll never have anyway boston's always go for getting rid using draft picks have anyway so to get. That exception is the affinity stone. Danny h has got something up his sleeve and danny ainge won't use this thing In we get to the trade deadline because if he feels like he can beat the brooklyn. That's he can go. Beat the milwaukee bucks ted. There's a whole bunch of guys sitting out there that would love to be traded or there's a potential free agent. That's he needs to get rid of. It could create exception for them. It could be done. I don't think danny angel sell will sell this trade section. He will use it. How much will use and remember. It's only one player. It cannot used over multiple players. Danny age will have to go his big wheel hunting right. So there's a bunch of guys you can go after and make it work okay. All right Danny before we get you outta here. I have a question about the vaccine. African americans and the vaccine is kinda like oil and water. There's been a lot of talk about you know x. Amount of brown blind people not being interested in taking vaccine if you had to share a story with Are brown and black brothers and sisters out there on the reasons why you need to take the vaccine. What story would you share or go the opposite way and you know. I don't wanna put you in a box. I just want to know from you or would you. Are you for or you pro against i think for me i because nor how clinical trials has been in my lifetime existence. I have a bit of hesitation towards it but at the same time i understand that modern medicine has changed over the years when they did clinical trials. You know ted children. No i mean you back in thirteen hundreds me back in the eighties you know. The clinton weighed clinical trials for different. Different vaccines is different. You know is brian. I i understand how modern medicine changes you know how we do things for me. I'm a little skeptical of it. Of course. I'm skeptical with anything. Brand new is i mean i. I look at the vaccine like look at a new game console. Okay it might be great. You never know but there could be king wrote. It could be kinks that we have. So it's it's it's for me. I wanna see at least one or more so runs before you know. I i think about taking it but i can tell you this. I know members of my family that the second is available. They're going to get it there in the waiting list. Nine to go get it so you know i just i wanna watch and see how it plays out You know i. I'm not running to the first batch the same way. I don't run for xbox xbox. Let me stop. We both were. We'll try to figure those xbox lines out in november but but with the xbox playstation you know there's always gonna be myth steps. There's always going to be you know. Hit hiccups in the first batch. Yourself say by they say by new game console. After the first of the year the following year let them get the first six months kings out of it as part of it I just for me. i'm a little bit. I'm interested to find out how it works. And i wanna see the numbers but like i said if people weren't out to go get it i understand i'm not going to look at people differently beyond the way because everybody situations different i think for me is that i just wanted to see how the first batch goes you know. And then after the first batch you know just to see because for me i have. Health concerns I have a history of coronary embolisms. My hip replacement surgery. So i've got to be careful about things like this because i don't want any type of flare ups but it comes to me catch another p. e. me catching anything anything involving my body. Because ever since i had the embolism I must i may case potentially get one so i have to be real careful so. I'm a little bit more skeptical I i saw what happened with the peanut vaccines. And you know how you know the reaction to those two people. I think was england so i i look at those at look at myself. I say you know what i really want to see. What type of side effects comes with. Y'all wanna see it tested about tests. I wanted to see in in different people. You know people would not in not just brown people people who are just like myself you know who have the same situations i do so I want a vaccine as much as anybody else. Because i want us to get back some normalcy state now ted. We're we're in curfew at ten o'clock at ten o'clock at night we gotta be home between ten five otherwise getting pulled over you know and i wanna be able to go back to you. Know you know you're covering games. I want to go back into a press box and feel comfortable. I wanna go to a basketball game covering a game and you have people in the stands. But i also want people in the stands with the ability to be themselves again. Danny froze up. But i will tell you i'm with you big shoutout to bianca brown. Thank you for joining us mostly. Yes we do want the world to go back to you know the way it used to be twelve months ago but ultimately i think the more that we see the healthcare workers in i guess influential people. Meaning you know ex-presidents You know people that will inspire me. I could care less about it. Celebrity taking of a vaccine or anything like that but the people that we consider a world leaders People that is so funny this on a wrap it up by saying nurse who lives across the street from me She's she's a nurse at lenox hill hospital. She's getting the taken next week. So she's like the first person i know that's actually taking the bar the vaccine and you know i think along with this is hope That third quarter full hopefully full late full going to early winter that we can start to live our lives again. I think we lost dany. But i wanna thank everyone once again for joining late may parents. You can finally parents on the web. You got a late night. Parents dot com all different types of blog posts and articles. And you'll find our youtube page and twitter page so give it a follow. Give it a light. Wanna thank Tom of join us. We had some technical issues. Big shout out to to peter and to pablo and the the rest of the team there But i will tell you yes beyond guy. It is good to know that. I'll actually know someone you know. That's the one thing I will close with this my dad. Who's in his late eatings. Like that's one of like one of the things is heavy on my mind like okay. When is he going to get to take because the elderly. I think our next in line outside of you know everyone who's like Essential worker healthcare style workers. Next will be the elderly people so this stuff. This whole pandemic weighed on us. Very differently Keep the faith you know. Keep god first in everything you do and will be back in think next week. Thanks again folks.

But there is another nature science that we haven't really focused on all that much and i think it's high time we changed that because we didn't use this field of science to help the environment and save the planet and that's exactly what i'm talking about chemistry and that's why it's time to present a brand new segment to explore the secrets and wonders of chemistry. It's time for emma's chemistry corner all right. Welcome to my lab. I'm so excited. I've already got some bunsen burners going and my first experiment is in full swing with the help of our friends at basf. The largest chemical company in the world record to explore some of the cool things. You can do with chemistry. And i'll even show you some experiments. That real chemist do experiments thing you can do at home so let's put on your coat and safety goggles and get started quick. You're having no worries in are at home experiments. We won't do anything dangerous. I know what i'm doing. Well maybe every now and then. We will need. Help from a grown-up but i'll tell you when that happens. Okay one sec. I gotta check on my experiments real quick. Fix be studying. That'll do it. I making glow in the dark gel to help with my next overnight research. Excursion fingers crossed. It will work okay. so what. Start with a short introduction to chemistry. Chemistry is the science of matter. And what's matter. You ask what everything is made of. And i mean everything what you're sitting on right now and the floor below you everything. He touched the air that surrounds. You even giving your body all of it absolutely. Everything is made of different materials and these materials or matter are made of tiny tiny tiny particles called atoms. Tiny if you were to take one single hair there could be about two million of the smallest atoms aligned along its width. That's really small and adams can bind to other atoms and form something called molecules molecules are also really really tiny but the properties of these really tiny particles gives the bigger materials their properties properties. We can see or feel heard or saw something is disappear wet or dry even color is and how it smells or tastes so yeah. That's what chemists do they study these atoms and molecules and think about ways that we can use them to create new materials like medicines to cure diseases or find cleaner safer more efficient and environmentally-friendly waste produce the materials. We meet know it'd be cool. Let's finish today's corner with a small chemistry fun fact. Okay guys pop quiz. What do diamonds and graphite having common Let's the reason through one is transparent and shiny. The other is grand powdery. Diamonds are really hard so they can even cut medals but we use graphite pencils because it soft so can leave marks on paper possibly have in common well. Despite all these differences diamonds graphite bites have much more in common than you think. Do you know what it is. They're actually both made up of the same type of atom carbon and both diamonds and graphite are pure glimpse of carbon meaning. They only contain carbon. What makes them so different. It's just the way that these tiny atoms are arranged connected to each other. This really shows how important chemistry is both diamonds and graphite are made of the exact same thing carbon atoms but tiny differences can completely change her. Feel all right before we go. I just want to dig one sick and check in on my experiment. Let's see below. That seems that. I've created some purple. Gu i guess you okay. I think next time. I'll check in with my friends at. Sf before him. I know they are in all things. Slimy hey you can even check the show. Notes for linked tweet cool. Be kids left to learn about tiny things called polymers. And make your very own slime. Speaking of next time in the next chemistry corner will examine. How chemistry is related to biology. And how some creatures us very unique chemical processes to their advantage all right. I think it's time for a short break with today's i. Hannibal encounter story. Our first story comes from earth rangers. Evelyn at elvin hello. I'm i ranger evelyn. Hello i'm earth's ranger alvin. We live in coquitlam canada. High earth ranger emma. So i'm going to tell the story of when our dog saved us. We were in the kitchen. Play the my brother alvin. Then our dog started barking or we looked outside so huge bear. We called our mom. Then everyone in. The house came my grandma and know that so. She opened the door to go outside and see what was happening then. Our dog raged outside. He chased away the bearing. Save us all. That's our animal counter story ends. Well i must say. I was a little worried there for a second encounters between dogs and wildlife can sometimes be dangerous for both sides. Luckily the baron away but that it is better not to let your dog outside when a bears around. Thank you for this story. Evelyn in elven. Okay let's continue with our chemistry workshop number two. Welcome back to emma's chemistry corner okay. Last time we talked about chemistry and learn the chemistry is the science of matter. And because you listen to this podcast you probably heard the word biology quite a lot. I all aji is the signs of everything. That's alive from bacteria so tiny. You can't even see him to the trees in the park to the giant blue whale. Neil sheehan. Did you know that life couldn't happen without chemistry. It's to no creature would exist. If it wasn't for chemistry why is that well because all of the processes that happen inside all living creatures are actually chemical reactions. And what's a chemical reaction you might ask. A reaction is when material changes usually because it encounters other materials who remember the adams we talked about last time teeny tiny particles that all matter is made up of a chemical reaction is when atoms bind to each other to create molecules or the opposite when the bonds between atoms break. You can think of it kind of like lego pieces. Each piece is adam and when you put them together you create a molecule and the action and putting them together or breaking. The molecule apart is called a chemical reaction so back to why chemistry is so important to life. We'll sorry my stomach making noise. Wait that's a great idea. You can just think of what the food we eat. Adjusting requires many chemical reactions. That happen inside your body. But he's been chewing. It requires chemical reactions. That happened inside your muscles and the oxygen you breathe. That makes those muscles function guess. What eating chemical reactions for the oxygen to get to those muscles. And what's really amazing. The coolest thing of all is that many of these reactions are very similar in all living creatures. Doesn't matter if it's a mosquito or ben elephant so in a way when we look at living creatures we can imagine that in them. Millions millions of tiny chemical reactions are happening all the time without ever stopping. That said there are some living creatures that have taken chemical reactions to the extreme like next level and they can make unique chemical reactions. That can't creatures like chameleons octa pine squid in quickly changed their skin colors helping them to hide from predators. Hunt and communicate chameleons have these special crystals in their skin and if they changed the way these crystals are arranged their color changes heels in. Some fish have special organs. They used to create strong. Electric fields like batteries or generators a use electricity. They make two hundred offend themselves and just last year. Researchers found the strongest electricity generator of all animals. It's a type of in the amazon and it can generate an electric shock of eight hundred sixty volts and about one ampere. which is. It's a lot it's very sappy. It wouldn't cause harm to humans but it can definitely stun its prey. Ooh and then there's this beetle called the bombardier beetle that want it feels threatened. It creates a chemical reaction in its belly. That causes a splash of boiling. Smelly liquid. to come out of its rear as a defense. Look if you are an insect you sure wouldn't want to attack this beetle. And did you know that some creatures can create light and can actually glow in the dark for real. This is called bioluminescence bio for biology. And luminescence means light so i- logical liked. I mean you've probably heard firefly's bears so magical. But i have a really cool story about glowing. Bacteria you heard me right. Bacteria inside of squid fish. Why would they do such a thing. Well gives them protection. From the outside world squid's body becomes their own private habitat. But don't worry they don't cause any disease. Squid is actually really happy to have them. Because of these bacteria make the squid glow at night and allied a scrutiny. To glow you ask good question you see these squids hunt for small sea creatures at night but when the moon shines they make a shadow on the seafloor so they you can see their shadow and escapes if they have going bacteria inside of their own shadow disappears because of the glow so they're actually much less visible and then they can catch their prey. How cool is that. I wish i could go at night on working okay. Those were some really neat examples of cool chemical reactions that give some animals their special powers and it just goes to show you to really understand biology. We have to know our chemistry and time. We'll talk about one. Really cool chemical reaction. That happens in many creatures but doesn't happen in any animal. When i guess what it is stay tuned. Oh almost forgot next time. We'll do a real chemistry experiment together. Check the show for list of items. you'll need. Don't worry it's all stuff. You probably already have at home so now you know what atoms molecules and chemical reactions are. How cool is that. What's another quick break and check out. The next animal encounter story coming to you from earth ranger henry. Hello my name. Is henry. And i saw cool in a couple weeks ago. So l started when threads were forced of north carolina a break for lunch then yard and then a couple seconds. Later we saw oss bright line of fish in its claws. Wow an osprey catching a fish. What a magnificent sight to behold sounds so exciting or and henry. Thanks for your story. All right onto our next episode of emma's chemistry corner will come back to 'em chemistry corner. Welcome back to ms chemistry corner less than we talked about how chemical reactions occur in all living creatures all the time and how different use different chemical reactions. But today i wanna talk about one. Really important chemical reaction that happens in many creatures but in no animal. So in which creatures doesn't happen you ask. oh implant. algae and some bacteria that's right. I'm talking about photosynthesis photo photo. Synthesis synthesis his photo means light and synthesis means creation so the weird photosynthesis describes the way that plants can use like coming from the sun to create the food. They need to grow najib. If you could just sit in the sun and get all the energy needed chilling would be eating and eating with the chilling. It's perfect anyways. Besides all the foods that plans make by photosynthesis. There's another super important by product of this reaction. Do you know what it is is the oxygen we yup without photosynthesis we wouldn't have oxygen and that would be a problem so i think it's fair to say that this is a really important chemical reaction so how to plants do it. I mean how do they use light to make the food they need. They have special molecule in them called chlorophyll and that's the molecule that gives them the green color we see on leaves clear means green. Bt doubts in biology coa molecules are called pigments and chlorophyll is a type of pigment with chlorophyll is are able to absorb light energy and converted into telugu energy. Do you wanna see chlorophyll well. It's impossible to see molecules. Because they're so tiny. But today. I'll show you how we can separate the chlorophyll from the other materials in the leaf and check out all the different pigments in the leaf including chlorophyll so roll up your sleeves for our first experiment. It's called chromatography. You'll need a coffee filter a pair of scissors rubbing alcohol jar a pen or pencil abol with hot water and different types of leaves to be spinach or lettuce. Spinach leaves actually work really well but really any type of leaf you want is okay. It can also be really cool to compare between the pigment of different types of leaves. If you wanna compare between differently you'll need a few jars one for each type of oh and instead of rubbing alcohol you can. Totally use nail polish remover. Also please ask grownup to help you. Find her. Handle these materials. You can hit pause right now in order to get them and i'll wait for you here. Waiting for science is fun science with the gro- but talk the talk. The we're gonna find out what's in leaves. Oh you're back okay. Do you have everything cool. let's begin. Tear the leaves into small pieces like really small as small as you can. You can use a kitchen knife but careful or ask a grown up to do it for you. if you want you can also crush with your fingers. Put the pieces of leaves in the jar and poor a bit of rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover on top. So cover them completely. But you don't really need much more than this and then closed the chart carefully. Put the jar inside a bull with hot water and let it sit for half an hour. Lift the jar and sturt from time to time. If the water gets cold you can replace it fast. Forward to the future. After about half an hour liquid jars to become greenish or even dark green depending on the type of leaf. You're using using the scissors a rectangular piece of coffee filter paper. It should be a little longer than the height of the jar and his spot as possible. Wrap the tip of the paper over the pen. You can use tape to hold it in place and place it on top of the jar so only the bottom of the paper touches the liquid in the jar. Careful not to touch the jarwal and then just let it sit for an hour or two. You can keep watching it from time to time. Because like every scientific experiment the results can sometimes be unexpected. Paper should soap the liquid immediately but after an hour to you should start seeing stripes on the paper all the pigments from the leaf are in the liquid and when the liquid through the coffee filter paper pigments get stuck at different spots according to their chemical properties. So after enough time you should see you separate stripes on the paper. Each strike should have a different color. Ones should be greener yellow orange. You may see other colors too. It just depends on the type of leaf you used. The colors are all different pigments. The color molecules center inside the leaf and the green line is chlorophyll the pigment molecule that plants used for photosynthesis. This experiment was hard work. But how cool is it to see what things like. Leaves are made of and what enables plans to use light in order to make their food. And did you know that. Real chemist use chromatography experiments. Like this in their labs all the time it's true. Chromatography is a really useful method to separate materials from each other. If you wanna find out what something is made of. So it wasn't just a fun experiment to do but something that's really useful in chemical research and i'd even say that once you do this experiment you're well on your way to becoming. Chemistry sells well next time. We'll talk about one of my favorite topics in chemistry chemistry and the environment. How do use chemistry to protect the planet like we're rangers do and we'll definitely do another experiment. You won't believe the cool thing that we can do with red cabbage. Check out the show notes for all the ingredients. You'll need our next animal. Encounter story is from earth ranger amir and it arrived via email. Here let me read it to you. It says hello. Earth ranger emma. That's me i am. An animal encounter story to tell you today. One night my dad my mom and me were driving back from grabbing food at a restaurant. We were driving next to a field on the way back to neighborhood. When we saw a bunch of free little creature scuttling around on the road they ran into a ditch. And at first we thought they were a bunch of ninety cats on the road but it further inspection. We saw that. It was family of raccoons a large raccoon. Didn't look still pcs. And there were four youngsters. It may be four or five months old still with their mother. The mother started squeaking growling and two of her babies ran back door while the other two were hunting around for grubs and stuff. It was so cute and i will never forget it baby. Raccoons are so cute. I'm glad that you let them be and didn't disturb them any further. We need to give wildlife animals their space especially when we see them with their cubs. Thank you for your story with ranger amir. Okay back to our workshop. Welcome back to emma's chemistry corner in today's episode will become environmental scientists. environmental scientists. Study how we can protect the environment. Many environmental scientists are chemists because chemistry can really help us to understand ecosystems and look for ways to protect them. Chemistry also plays a huge role in creating materials. That can help. Protect the environment like Plastics or new kinds of equal friendly fuel. One important thing. Environmental scientists often do is going to different locations to take samples of the water or soil and measure. Different properties of them. Over time it can tell us how healthy ecosystem is a aquatic. Ecosystems like lakes swamps rivers and oceans are really sensitive to pollution and other changes in the environment and one of the major threats to aquatic ecosystems. Is city what city what when something is acidic. It can tastes sour. Like lemon juice or vinegar. Also in our stomach are really strong. Acids that help us digest our food so the opposite of acidic chemistry. It's called basic or alkaline. But there's not many outgoing foods we can eat. So it's hard to describe what it tastes like a good examples of alkaline materials. Daily life would be so aching soda and laundry detergent. Maybe you've heard of the term. Ph ph is a measure of if something is acidic or alkaline. Seven is right in the middle. It's neutral any number. Below seven is in. Any number of seven is alkaline. What's important is that a city level is really crucial for the health of aquatic ecosystems. Why well because many aquatic animals like algae coral and many other organisms can only live in very specific conditions so when the water around them is different than what they're used to it can get sick or die and when the water and aquatic ecosystems becomes too acidic many animals that used to live. There can't survive. It's true for small lakes and ponds but also for the oceans. Environmental scientist take water samples from aquatic ecosystems. Over the years to check how the acidity changes over time and they do so using something called an indicator. an indicator is a thing that tells them. How acidic or alkaline. The water is and in today's experiment. We're going to do similar thing we'll check. How acidic or outgoing different materials are using a very special indicator one that he's stupor high tech in various scientific and it's it's cap cabbage. Red cabbage wait a minute. What yes yes. Red cabbage really. I mean that's what it says here. My nose varies a mistake. I don't know you just going to have to try and see okay. So yes for this experiment. You will need one red cabbage and a big part of role. That contain boiling. Water will also need a few more things but for now. Just focus on the cabin. Take it out and tear a few leaves off into small pieces with your hands and put it in a big potter book for this part duly gronau. Ask them to pour boiling water into the pot and let it stand into. The water is purple and cool down. It can take an hour or so for it to cool so patiently. In the meantime you can prepare all the other materials you'd like to check. They have to be liquid or water. Soluble so you can dissolve them in the water. You'll need a few transparent glasses as well for each of the samples that you wanna check okay. So the first you put one teaspoon of each of the materials in a separate glass and then add pulled water to fill it up to the half the knicks you can leave the teaspoon inside the glass because we'll use it later. Ask to help you preparing these glasses with different materials because some are not so healthy. I recommend lemon juice vinegar. Salt egg white liquid soap and laundry detergent. You can also test other materials if you'd like remember one teaspoon of each in each separate grass add water up to the halfway mark and knicks. Just remember to label each glass what you put in it and be careful that no one drinks it by accident. Just stay close to your experiment. Hey oh it. Will you prepare everything. But i mean you can also pause. Wait wait wait any way. Well he gets up stuffing glasses glasses and stuff thapa deputy Everything ready cool. If the one of the cabbage leaves is nice and cold and purple uniform. That's great use labeled the poor some of the purple water without the leaves into each of the glasses and fill them then use a teaspoon to mix it and watch the magic happen. You should see the color of the purple water change. If you've used vinegar lemon juice chick turn pink if you use laundry detergent. It should become blue green in the salt liquid soap. An egg white. It should still be purple but a bit more blue in the glass containing the editor. So why is that. well remember the acidity. The red cabbage contains a molecule called anthocyanins. And it's a good indicator of a city which means that it changes its color. According to how acidic or alkaline something is the lemon juice and vinegar are sick so the anthocyanins and the cabbage water becomes pink. The laundry detergent is alkaline. So the anthocyanins becomes blue and the saltwater is neutral not acidic or alkaline so it remains purple environmental scientists use acidity indicators like this to examine water samples it helps them to know if an aquatic ecosystem is healthier. Not so we can understand it better and know how to protect it. But in any case it's nice to have this rainbow of colors one more thing. Don't forget to clean up your experiment. Every chemists knows the importance of a spotless lab. Stay tuned for our next chemistry corner. Will we'll talk to a real environmental scientists just a small reminder that if you did the at home experiments in one is share your results with us. Just ask your parents to follow earth rangers on facebook instagram or twitter and take the photos with hashtag. Emma's chemistry. I am really excited to see how your experiments turned out. Okay how about one more story for today. This time from earth rangers analogy from juno alaska. Hi my name. Is earth rangers and ali. I come from juneau. Alaska and my animal encounter was one time. It was at the glacier. We were heading back down. The ramp in on the side of the ramp was a big boulder like a big stone. And i was like look. Mom bear but momnents until the momma bear started. Walking across the ramp was her three cubs. They are big black bears and the cubs were absolutely indoor ball. Such a cool story a family of bears and they can look like big stones especially if they don't move that much and bear cubs are adorable. Thank you earth ranges analogy. Okay rangers ready for one last round of chemistry fun here we go. Welcome back to ms chemistry corner. Okay remember last time. We took the first step towards becoming environmental scientists environmental scientists as you already know or people who use science like chemistry in order to better understand our ecosystems and think about new ways to protect them similar to what we earth rangers do with blab coats and safety goggles now. After the coup experiments we did in the last two episodes. I started to ask myself. Is this actually. What real environmental scientists due to figure it out. I talked to professor hint. Who is a real chemist and environmental scientist and. She shared some of the secrets of her work with me. Let's turn to the call. I'm speaking with hynde alabama ashley. She's a professor at the wolford loria university and head of the environmental physical and inter facial chemistry or the epic lab. I things are speaking with us today. Thanks for having me all right. So i usually more of a biology gal but i just recently discovered my love for chemistry and now i know just an amateur bit. You're the real deal. Can you describe to us what you do sure. I built a chemistry lab at laurie to study chemical reactions in the atmosphere soil and water. I teach courses on these subjects and help students get an appreciation for how human activity affect the chemical balance of natural systems. Whoa that sounds really important. How did you become a chemist. Were you always interested in chemistry. Yeah i think you know. My exposure to science came through my teachers. I had outstanding science teachers in highschool the chemistry teacher in particular inspired me to ride research paper on the different types of pollution since then desio revolution. I found chemistry to be unique because it explained everything i was curious about. I remember the chemistry teacher in high school showed us an experiment called dancing spaghetti dancing spaghetti. What she brought a very long bicker and she ad in it baking powder and vinegar and she broke different spaghetti pieces into smaller ones that can fit and she added a food coloring to the mixture and then we saw the bubbling happens because of the action between vinegar baking soda. I've been spaghetti. Started to float around and she told us. Yeah this is the biggest. Do still in your heart. And so i so much fun to watch. That's wild. can you describe how chemistry lab looks like are. There are a lot of explosions going on well. The health and safety of anyone in give us the allowed is our top priority so there is no explosion. We had a very strict hilton safety protocol before going into the lab on hand on chemicals or starting january actions and we have to follow that for the call with our most senior person in the room. And that's usually me or another student that i trade. Oh fair enough safety measures. We talked about chromatography to episodes ago and did an experiment using a coffee filter. Is this the kind of thing that you would really do in the lab. Of course chromatography is a powerful separation tool that helps us isolate chemicals in mixtures with so cool. Okay before we get to the real important stuff. I got a trick question for you. What's the dullest element on the periodic table Let me think news think a line but interesting that you mentioned this one because not all elements and dictate able found in nature. This element is made in the lab and mostly used for research purposes and it is actually named after a scientist very neat. So let's get into some more serious stuff. What are the ways. We can use chemistry to help the environment. Chemistry is the science that help us make sense of the world. We live in the level of electrons. Atoms and molecules chemistry. We know what chemicals in the air we breathe an how much why again like carbon dioxide can trap heat through chemistry. You'll know how actions in the atmosphere captains chemicals and if these new can cause with mick climate change better or worse also chemistry you will know why. The oceans are getting more acidic because of carbon dioxide build up in the atmosphere at how that increasing acidity is affecting the chemicals in the ocean. That's uses to build their shells. Chemistry really helps us know. So much. And just talked last time about the problem of acidity in aquatic ecosystems. Now can i ask how your research helps to fight. Climate change in air pollution. We'll fix what asking me that solving climate change and air pollution and quiet data from experiments in the lab and the field and the use of powerful and super fast computers. So in my lab. We study the actions that we suspect could happen in the atmosphere and we provide data on half as these actions go and how they could affect atmospheric temperature done so interesting. Okay one last question for you. I usually my interviewees what their favorite animal is. But since her chemists. I'm kind of curious to know. What your favorite atom or molecule or chemical reaction is. Yeah i mean. That's that's a lovely question. I think my favorite three action is photosynthesis. How trees take cups you to water and use light from the sun to make oxygen and sugars. This action is opposite to what we do when we stuff to get energy to view our economy so plans do what we do but then reverse. That's right well professor. Think you still went for speaking to me. This was a great interview. I think you could say that. The two of us had a lot of chemistry. I agree thank you thank you i. That was so cool. If i wasn't a wild. I've researcher already. I'm pretty sure that i would have been a chemist. I hope you enjoyed emma's chemistry corner. If you'd more questions about chemistry you can leave a message at. Www dot earth rangers dot com slash. Podcast or you can email us at podcast. At earth rangers dot com. I would love to hear your questions. And hopefully i can answer them and if your episode well listeners. I hope you had fun. Learning about chemistry and doing the at home experiments with me. Now that we've finished our workshop. You're ready to start your journey as environmental scientist. I'll see all of you next year when we announce the winner of the pounder contest. I am already so excited for some brand new animal adventures in twenty twenty one.

US-China trade talks resume in Shanghai

"Today provide you with in depth news and expert analysis telling the whole story bigger picture the news you want to know on today China's central government expressed support for Hong Kong. Please and leader amid the deepening crisis. Donald Form Calls on the W._T._o.. To drop developing nation status for China Chinese Foreign Minister while he wraps up tour tour of Brazil and Chile as Colombian President has for Beijing and China's tech driven economy is growing. You're listening to world today a news program with a different perspective. I'm drawing in Komi Hour. We'll bring you in-depth analysis on these news and other stories listen following to listen to those episode again or to catch up from previous episodes. You can download our podcast by searching world today. Jonah has its support for Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam mm-hmm and police force as protests in Hong Kong has escalated and taken increasingly violent turn in risen weeks spokesperson for the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs the Office of the State Council young made the remarks at a press conference held in Beijing this afternoon young blame the few radical protesters for the violence saying saying the central government fully supports relevant government departments and police in establishing the rule of law on Sunday riot police fired tear gas and rubber bullets police at protesters calling for Hong leader Kerry lamp to resign at least forty nine people have been arrested for offenses including unauthorized simply and possession session offense offensive weapon for more on this. We are now joined on the line by Victor. Go our current affairs commentator Victor. Thanks for joining us. Thank you very much for having me so I can tell us more about or take away from this press conference this afternoon well first of all. It's a very <hes> good development that the spokesperson of the State Council Hong Kong Macau Office on behalf of the Central Government finally made a public appearance for more than eight eight weeks in a row of have being protestors demonstrations for example rioting storming of the covent headquarters <hes> <hes> legislative <hes> House and Central Government Rep Office for example binding all for the police officers finger attacking <hes> in the <hes> passengers in the streets in public places the situation in Hong Kong deteriorating and I would say it's no longer so called the protesters all aw demonstrators it is many cases outright rioting and <hes> deaf all this afternoon the spokesperson of on behalf of the Central Government finally <hes> take <hes> stand on this issue and I think the firm support that the central government gave to the Chief Executive Carolina of Hong Kong and the firm support of the central government given to the police force and police officers in in Hong Kong in exercising that duty to enforce the rule of law and to bring cows back to stability <hes> is highly <music> a laudable because it really gives a very good signal as to how the central government <hes> views the situation in Hong Kong and how much support and commitment all of the central government has to the Hong Kong government the Chief Executive and the police forces in Hong Kong <hes> and what the central government to be eventually do if the situation <hes> STU cannot be stabilized stickling forward so I think this is all oh very positive it's very much watched over by many people in the world and I hope people in Hong Kong at large and those this cool <hes> engaged in such and in many cases allow just say illegal activities in Hong call need to give full pete two of a spokesperson has spoken about and really recollect their sanity and <hes> abide by the rule of law in Hong Kong and and avoid pushing the situation in Hong call back into. I'm lucky and a complete abyss well. Let's who said these comments are actually the the first of its kind coming from the central government. This violence has been lasting for weeks but what makes Beijing feel that this is the time to come out and make these official statements first of all. I personally believe <hes> such a press conference <hes> it was long overdue you. I wish that if the press conference could have taken place several weeks ago all six weeks of call five weeks ago for all last week it would have been better however <hes> to give credit to the central government spokesperson for example from mainland China House perspective the Central Government's perspective whatever that is happening in Hong Kong is a major development. They really need to collect all correct information from Hong Kong. They need to put everything in perspective for example they need to really understand and study and research study all the provisions of the Basic Law for example all the aspects of the One Country Two system principal as well as practice and they want to make make sure that whatever they say whatever action they may eventually announced will be absolutely the correct actions and the speeches news and we'll be in comply complete compliance with the principles of the Basic Law and will give no doubt about what what the central government really stands for and we'll give those why engaged in illegal <hes> categories for example and and also Igal attacks of the police officers and innocent people in Hong Kong the real reason to believe why in the rump why down violating the rule of law why whatever they stand for is doomed and the central government will be able to give the full weight fleet of the Central Government in China the one point four billion people in mainland China to the justify the causes of the people in Hong Hong Kong in terms of protection of the rule of law and the protection of the One Country Two system as well as all the relevant provisions of the Basic Law so I would say the central government didn't speak lightly but whenever these speak they speak with the full weight of the Basic Law at the full weight of the Chinese people and the full weight of the Chinese government will indeed this is a very a complicated issue <hes> well. We know this all started from the extradition bell which has already been announced debt by the Hong Kong <hes> S._e.. Our government will why I have the protests further escalated and becomes more and more violent and why are they targeting the police. Though first of all I think as a democracy the Hong Kong the government has full rights authority to introduce bills for example in Mexico for the members of electrical review and eventually decide hi to adopt or not adopt therefore I think the whole uproar about the XTRA vision bill extradition bill itself is really balking balking at the wrong tree to stopped with Holcombe has similar extradition arrangements with about twenty countries in the world mainland China. The People's Republic of China China has similar arrangements with about forty countries in the world and if you look at the practice of many many countries or regions in the world to have an extradition addition is actually the rule rather than an exception therefore my belief is that sooner or later Hong Kong will have an extradition arrangement involving L._V. Hong Kong Macau mainland China and Taiwan for example because we do not want you end up with a situation where a person will maybe guilty not of a criminal offence for example can seek haven or hide in one jurisdiction <hes> beyond the reach of the law enforcement authority ordeal of the Judiciary Authority not the <hes> jurisdiction so sooner or later it will be written into the law of Hong Kong so this is one thing right now. There are people in Hong Kong while now pushing for all the other agendas for example Hong Kong autonomy on independence bring by the British for example they actually carry you as a flak for example the Union Jack Flack and <hes> they hurl role in salvation insult for example at mainland China of Chinese people obliged Cetera now allow me to say purely from the mainland Chinese these people's perspective all these complete insults to the Chinese nation and to the Chinese people and we cannot tolerate <hes> all such <hes> extremism among certain elements of Hong Kong and according to widespread information many of these so-called extreme elements in the illegal gatherings or demonstrations are taxed to the attacks of the police officers for example and <hes> <hes> injury the innocent <hes> civilians for example. I'll actually <hes> motivated and connected with overseas influences so we need to be very careful. It's not only purely a demonstration or gatherings of people in Hong Kong. Many of them were being taken advantage of we're being fueled by forces beyond the boundary of Hong Kong and there are people wherever they <hes> who do not want to see one country two system a succeed in the final analysis they do not want to see that Hong Kong and Tang's it's calm and stability and <hes> can devote itself L. to peaceful development and doing business and generate economic benefits of other people of Hong Kong. We want to make sure that the statements despite the spokesperson for the State Council Hong Kong Macau Affairs Office today on behalf of the central government will really give the right note to weather central government stands at how the people in Hong Kong really need to fully wake up to the absolute necessity not of respecting the rule of law respecting the police officers and also listen to what the Hong Kong government as a chief executive have to to say we want to save Hong Kong from degenerate into an abyss. We want to make sure the Hong Kong is a beautiful Hong Kong. Tomorrow's Tomorrow's Hong Kong will be even better than Hong Kong today. I'm the traducing the central government will take some actions to help Hong Kong restore peace and stability no as the spokesperson rightly pointed out and if you read carefully the provision of Basic Law of course there is a provision <hes> authorizing the central government to do whatever it is it can at the request of the Chief Executive of Hong Kong S._A._S. government to <hes> bringing the resources of the central government to help Hong Kong <hes> in terms of that show disaster relief or in terms of <hes> exercising <hes> stability Hong Kong to prevent loss aw civil <hes> older and stability for example and also to defend Hong Kong guest <hes> foreign threats all aggression however I think right now the position of the central government is that this up to today's completely still within the authority of the Hong Kong government the Hong Kong government chief executive carry on the police forces have the full confidence and the trust of the central government so so you do your job and it's not absolutely the time for the central government to step in. I would say there are still been a minimum loops before Oh you exhaust all the resources Hong Kong before that she executive off Hong Kong will make a official request to the central government for help now what was that request is made if you allow me to say then the central government can decide to sending the P._R._i.. L._A. False is all I would say <hes> the mainland's <hes> <hes> security officers all police officers to help the police these forces in Hong Kong and the <hes> government in Hong Kong to maintain stability and to prevent Think we have all the resources available but it is still not the time as in the judgment of the central government but I hope everyone Alko wake up to the reality that Hongkong dependent is absolutely impossible and whatever political views you have expressed them in a legal way way rather than challenging the rule of law transitioning Hong Kong or challenging the authority of the Hong Kong as a complement to our current affairs.

President Donald Form has caught on the World Trade Organization a-rated fondest key criteria developing countries saying that some countries are receiving unfair preferential treatment. He has singled out China in a memo two U._S.. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer saying that the United States has never accepted China's claim developing country status and virtually every current economic communicator belies China's claim he gave lighthizer ninety days to determine whether there's been substantial progress to what limiting the number of countries considered developing developing nations and said the U._S.. May Act unilaterally if not for more on those we are now joined on the line by Lucien Cohen former senior trait diplomat of China and he is now the managing director of the Dug Co Geneva and professor at University of International Business and economics of China Professor Lou. Thanks for joining us before the place well just from have appointing calling for this review the W._T._o.. Saying that Jonah and some <hes> other economies they shouldn't be receiving the special treatment based on their developing country status. Well Real. He's part is the version oh my hand trump pretty little ended up doing think that's kind of the economies should alternate jurors special treatment because they are deeper and richer. You're Kinda authors also have you on the hand and trying to yeah he's still vulnerable and they still be a big uh-huh development is still highly relevant patient differential treatment for right before <hes> both sides have paved devoted their purpose to and buy these papers on Kili regio percentage votes seems to have point you would say but from my point of view the key thing behind this is not about who have different donkey but rather about how we rebound the vice on the obligations that faithfully reflects to be confirmation Piccolo boy landscape members has no way of Gozo's reach more pragmatic and could basis for <hes> for the discussion and we got to pump it right now by with ooh very well but as I understand currently the W._T._o.. Has No classification system to determine and a country's a position like whether it's a developing country or a developed country and instead this was based on a self declaration system that it is up for the countries themselves to decide their status and their outage ability for for the trait benefits <hes>. Do you think there's a problem was does well. Ah One also quite different for different members some of them. It's up to us because they are very comprehensive concept that is extremely difficult to conquest with one or two pounds or you've always done in busted the economy word all Pawtuxet eighty-five falling behind the company or the Republic of Oriel Window. That's why the two years has always racing <hes> of developed countries favors and enjoys especially on defense for the police station of commitment for four other holidays a basic problem because to be sensible country as opposed to this addition hook and eyes so you also have up on Hong Kong tunnel WHO's more fleet on a lot of grief of which company so it is not about these countries enjoy special defense in the country so <hes> well actually. We asked you said earlier this is the underlying issue is actually about the rebalance at the rise and obligations about <hes> in a twitter shortly after the release of Komo trump accused he called the world's Richard economies including China of cheating the system at the expense of the U._S._A.. Hell fairus. I thought well this is definitely not cheating. What are the rules existing appeal over not how you could say of dirt observed in the eyes of trump is a result of previous and goes vicious led by the end of uh-huh? If you have a problem with he used to sit down and those three proved these rules ultra annual come by now is investing the office which is about Eh that's nothing has come out and he mhm while the trump said out of Robert lighthizer concluded that the substantial progress has had not been made toward overhauling the organization's nations rules in ninety days he would then stop tweeting these countries as developing economies and would also not endorse their membership in the CD. What would the practical effect of those changes? Well very preliminary. Deal has come up in two days always for me. It's hard to any real impact on existing structure or the right and because yeah I think that you have on the ongoing of those especially subsidy I wish <hes> as they were going off on one and suppose they should be improving by December this and this is a very potent element of innovation vacation to respond to S S disease to be development does not only peacefully subsidies also also be clear negotiations on combat <hes> and we also loan loss be numbers I including <hes> BS on both these these go fishing timeout. A lot of those countries are the it'd be developed from the domestic industries also these people they should be any potential also okay so you would if the company <hes> between the Wisconsin along with other for the only numbers many for those are gone or who wants to the deal it must be so. Do you think what we're seeing right. Now is is actually more of a U._S.. Dissatisfactory that is the fact that these satisfaction of the dougie Oh and also the multilateral trading system as a result of us more inward looking policy or do you feel those as it's more of a battle against China in seeking strategic and geopolitical dominance well once again my personally achieved. I think these are all based on the correlate veal if the person with the bill <hes> my conduit when you think about that he's under been listening the problem under the determinative of the Peculiar Tequila a video posted to the system actually the reason season system. Yes definitely a different political <hes> dumping and that is what is happening. Let's really and it's hard to see where and how the relationship and also I think it what do you think that both negotiation and the review and also doc plays politics should be awful believing over and and very briefly. Do you think this is going to have an impact on this ongoing trade talks between China and the US this real all before something memorandum many analyze and we spaces Edina Welcome back. You're listening to world today. I'm joing now. Global Survey where we look at what's happening around the world.

Dan Coast have become delivers a high profile figure to leave the trump administration is tricia. Stay in the country through people having killed and fifteen injured by gunshots at a food festival in California again is down and the police are searching for a possible second suspect according to Winnie's reports. Thanks GonNa Jonah's Foreign Minister Wong Yee has wrapped up a tour of Lenton America on Sunday Sunday which began last week in Brazil and ended with an official visit to Chile he returns to Beijing on the same day Columbia's President Yvonne Duquet a rights for three day visit to China which will include a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping Jonah is now London America's second largest trading partner with bilateral for trade at over three hundred billion dollars growing eighteen point nine percent over the previous year for more or less bring in juncture ship Professor Director of the Center for Latin American Studies at Shanghai University Getting Professor John Thank you so what's your takeaway from the foreign minister while news trip connected America where you know <hes> in the coming months <hes> in South America there will be two important to summit I want to is some bricks tummy and as the easy <hes> some eppink some meat so Chinese President Xi Jinping will go. Oh that's a tendency to be important assesments so I believe that <hes> why is going there to do some kind of preparation work for a president. Can you cook well. Jonah has overtaken the US as Brazil's largest trading partner was the Brazilian still soybeans and other agricultural products replacing American imports since the start of the U.. S. China trade war about a year ago <hes> but has pood- President Jarwal so Naro in a very difficult position when when he's a trump follower and he even accused China of trying to buy Brazil during his election campaign yes you're right before scenario Oh Kim to power he said <hes> something which was not so favorable to the China initially hip but we Brazil but now well he has in the presidential office so I think <hes> to me I would say he's he attitude. Oh He's position as being changed changed in <hes> more favorable way to what China you know <hes> pressing the bus inaugural promises to speed up economy fight against a corrupt pushing and the cut the crown rights well in order to stimulate economic growth. You need a mock it the AH foreign investment in China can offer kind of help so I believe that the puzzle narrow has become more and more realistic so now she has Bima saying something which which quiet which quite favorable to the future home China's relationship with him but we know that Ah U._S.. Secretary of state might compel has just finished his tour to lend in America last weekend when he visited Argentina Ecuador Mexico and El Salvador and during that trip Ecuadorian president compared the current situation to a fighting bitten to elephants saying that the ones who produce are the insects who are of course being crushed by the elephants in the attempt to evade them. What do you think that pretty much reflect how the current dilemma Emma Dot the Latin American countries are facing yes because China and of the U._S.? <hes> two of the biggest economies in the world so when the two the two biggest economies of I try to walk the other countries will suffer often more or less but however at the same time I think sometimes other King Chris can benefit in <hes> in how would did you say non not so <hes> so welcome away you know in the pastas Romance China has <hes> <hes> lots of soybeans from Brazil so in a sense we can say that the Brazil has benefited from just kind of trade the confrontation between the U._S. and China of course we need to stand. That's hoping that <hes> the trade negotiation currently going on between China under the U._S.. will bear nice fruits so that the world economy will not be negatively affected by that's right and Washington has also been accusing Beijing of sowing discord in the region through depth rob's <hes> the claim dot when Jonah does business in places is like lint in America it often injects coercive capital into the economic blocs rim giving life to corruption and eroding good governance things had you look at that <hes> I was kind of argument is totally wrong and also it's groundless boundaries. You know that you too many factors. Many countries America cannot make investments. They zinc need to foreign capital okay so now China is winning investments either so that will be a Kinda Wailing Situation Jim for both sides so I will say that to what the U._S.. Official said I just the groundless and wrong but what do you think China is truly looking for in US relations with Latin American countries like do you think it is perhaps want to to gain more leverage in negotiations with the US well let America has benefited a lot from <hes>. It's <hes> better relationship between our two sides and <hes> and I believe that in the future this kind of relationship but we'll continue to move forward well regarding this kind Hannah Valentine relationship yes <hes> we need to pay attention to the civil called the negative aspect over the U._S. affected the U._S. is concerned. Send about Chinese presence in the region of course just kind of consent is not so necessary. Okay China will not challenge the U._S.. Influence speculation China wants to push you forward SAUSA- cooperation between China <hes> <hes> and also let America so I was say in the future this kind of relationship but we'll continue to wolf all where we need to point out too that this kind of relationship is good for the U._S.. Okay because Chinese market Chinese investment can push forward Economic Grossman in South Awesome Erica and the Central America the Caribbean prosperous let America will cut illegal migration. We'll cut illegal illegal drugs following into the U._S.. So I hope that the U._S. will see this kind of relationship between China and Latin America good for the U._S. and very briefly win Columbia's President Vonda Kay is now visiting China. What is what is top his agenda well? She's trip to Beijing I would say is to further promote about it. The relationship between our two sides five years ago or four years ago Chinese prime educate you whether they're so seems to ninety eighty when countries set up diplomatic I think relationship in the positive for taking the bilateral relationship between the two sides of the moving very rapidly political economic and cultural culture aspect so I hope that <hes> just triggered by Columbia President for Beijing we will further boost bilateral ties between outside aside.

I'm joing official data shows that new industries new forms and new models of businesses play a more significant role in Jonah's economic onomic rose last year. The three gross engines contributed sixteen percent to the country's T._D._p.. Last year up zero point three percentage points from two thousand Seventeen Janis economy has seen a transformation to become an innovation driven economy was great potential markets. We had alone has driven a total amount of two hundred and fourteen billion yuan of information consumption in two thousand eighteen for more on those my colleague John Now what do you make of the new industries <hes> contribution to China's economy. I think he's playing one of the most important role in increasingly increasingly growing the economy and creating new job opportunity they are also playing the most critical role to disrupt the establishment to change the dynamic new used to be imagined that the fifteen twenty years some of the you know biggest S._O._B.. Dominated area such such a China Mobile China Telecom they they companies have enormous power and that's the banks was so new used to enjoy extremely you know privileged position but I believe that the dynamic changing slowly <hes> but overtime actually significant city of how we are doing business I do believe that the provide hope for the younger generation they provide the moment and for change <hes> otherwise it would not be able to move as fast as they dumped it was also the main force of the new industries new forms and new models also businesses are small and medium-sized enterprises as you mentioned so why are they so good at innovation innovation to innovative innovative to disrupt basically it's extremely difficult to change a large bureaucracy for any any large corporation they normally you know the Tino off. Many years of consolidation is teaching very privileged position where basically stayed they are because of your market position just comes money flowing and all the people throughout the organization would be skeptical of any you know removed any methods I mean new ways of doing things and the fear that they may you know code some negative impact on their in a good business so I I think a universal it cross borders cross country costs culture the any large organizations will want to suffocate you know they they changed and they worry that might disrupt their normal business owning a smaller ones. They need to survive. They want to disrupt. Maybe just go whatever you taste the they have the Chutzpah they have the drive. They have the culture between new way to make new things. What makes these in the new way so I know <hes> China has sold the establishment of a more than ninety new Unicorn companies last year with the valuation of at least a one billion U._S. dollars so just now you mentioned some but what sectors are the concentrated in? Why can they have such a high valuation? Well I mean ah ninety seven of and what's significant is that the number of these companies that are cropping up in China. Everyone expects the U._S. to have have these things because of the technical technological prowess of U._S. Universities Etcetera Etcetera but actually China's catching up <hes> last year one this one hundred fifty six four U._S. ninety seven for China that basically puts it in two thirds one third position in terms of the areas that they're doing. I I mean as as we talked about a lot of these erring in these kind of the Iot the big data cloud networks and if they're not not necessarily and the sharing economy if they're not necessarily they're they're using this infrastructure. That's in the Internet remember. The Internet makes things much more easier. You know I'm addicted to chat why because I don't have have small change in my pocket. I always have money when I need it. I can pay for what I want when I <hes> when I wanted on it I don't have to look in my wallet and say Oh. I don't have enough cash with me or goes to the A._T._M.. And get more cash. These are the kinds of things that the internet is good at. It's moving around large data. Now we're going to be entering into this kind of second phase or the next phase of the Internet and that is when you start having this this massive amounts of data gathered by sensors gathered from the Internet now it can be communicated real time with five G. and then it can be processed using A._i.. Algorithms to help you understand exactly what's going on to help you understand what the opportunities are. This brings much greater efficiency efficiency than the old days when it was you know literally since spreadsheets around and somebody would have to analyze them and then somebody would have to write a report to have to go up to headquarters and they'd have to make a decision now. We're getting to the point where these computers are smart enough to make decisions automatically. You've seen that already in stock trading trading where they have algorithms that are pitting against each other and see who can get there quicker and make more money so this is going now going down to the consumer end and what says Oh what challenges or risks are out there considering all the economic uncertainty is this year for those Unicorns and what kind of environment environment is needed to encourage the stops and innovation from the private sector. I think they are a lot of challenges out out there for example then these dramatically changing the consumer behaviors that a lot of people are relying on cell phones to do almost everything anything like I said we don't even need to bring any cash redoubts but what if there's any kind of natural disaster no headlights something like the the earthquake earthquake in the east coast of Japan when everybody was relying on a cell phone with all the transactions and the infrastructure was gone and then you won't be able the to really have any transaction <hes> and then time so those are the those those major disruptions of infrastructure could cause a lot of problems and and also I think it also pose a lot of health challenging for example the elementary school students the middle school students if you look at them right now almost just everyone of us the suffering from me appeal and that's because they spend too much time on the iphone and they still phones playing games addicted to something in entity like social media and that could cause them backlash so the reaction of the general public. All of these things are moving so fast. I don't think databases therapy as a whole is capable of dealing with this in effective way yet. We won't things convenient but at the same time we are not aw aware what the cost we are paid the society stumbles forward does Winston One managing director of Shipton Group Ltd and Honor Tongan Author Author and columnist speaking with my colleague John Come Yup survey shows on US younger generations tend to choose their college majors based on personal interests rather so then future salaries. Why is that we'll be back? I am on Koch Idea. I teach at the Aja Nilo University India Today has organized its programs and its on <hes> bringing in in a lot of views from all over it is an extremely good platform for information and analysis that I wish all success in the future. This is world today. I'm joing arisen. Survey shows Chinese young people who were born after the year two thousand thousand choose college majors based on their personal interests rather than future salary. It has quite the opposite compared with the previous generations. The survey household pulled over several hundred thousand students who have just finished choosing their majors from thirty one provinces and regions in China. The result shows that most students choose their their majors such as history archaeology and so on which are believed to face lower future income so why is there such a sharp shift in choosing majors for the Liane generation joining me now. Institute is my colleague the host of the weekly Raviv Welcome. Thank you joining us so first of all. Could you elaborate more on the most popular majors for the post two thousand students so generally there are two categories art majors in science majors so for the art art category the top ten most popular majors our history cultural heritage and Museology in Ultima Paul Anthropology English Translation Business English Chinese language and Literature Teaching Chinese to speakers of other languages classic for loss of of Philology in signs of criminal the investigation among them history and cultural heritage and museology enjoys the highest scores at the same time for the science category. Sorry <hes> most popular majors are psychology forensic medicine mathematics and Applied Mathematics statistics information and computing commuting Signs Pharmaceutical Engineering Pharmacy Pharmaceutical Preparation Criminal Science and technology and basic medical sciences so it shows that <hes> <hes> that first students there are really falling. They're hard and they choose their major space on their personal. Interest due to the most popular major for the art categories graced history which history graduates are facing low employment rate and low income but if they choose it that means they're really falling their heart uh-huh so how is that different from those popular ones for the previous generations so for previous generations the hot topics some majors could be finance especially because due to <hes> that China has wind as a rapid development in both economic status and I._D.. Technology analogy industry so just in the year two thousand nine China graduate at half a million students with I._T.. and Finance and other related degrees so it's not hard to understand why so many students in the past with choose these kind of majors INESSA for the major finance cities like Shanghai Hi Shenzhen and Beijing and so on are so called financial hubs making accounting and finance as apoe below major and what are the least favorite major for the young people that would be the popular majors for the previous generations such as <hes> Logistic Management Accounting Financial Management Auditing incapital rating and insurance investment off and ends related in at the same time. There's another interesting one. The those are the naval architecture turn Ocean Engineering Petroleum Engineering Mining Engineering so reports show that the two thousand generation is rejecting doll works are explorer factory jobs or the mining industries that requires a lot of labor works in a so another report suggests. Maybe in the future when <hes> most countries are facing aging population. The workforce is predicted to shrink rapidly so was this. It's the same situation for all provinces or all. There are some slight differences in different regions so those are there are a a lot of differences because for students their preferences towards certain majors are to some degree effected by the Socioeconomic Merriment Inner said this varies from place to place since every province is different such as for Guangdong and gentle provinces students who live there are more interested in pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Preparations Environment Engineering Ecology comparative where the students in other provinces incense these provinces enjoy fast development in these industries at the same time and it also shows that the development of modern society people tend to pay more attention in environment protection and ecology so that is why they're choosing this kind of measures in for some more economically developed places like jo-john down in Shanghai students are interested in physics Biology Chemistry New Energy and other frontier research areas

And Elon Musk strength four, zero to sixteen for Twenty Elon Musk. You have power of veto would you like to change any denominations? Now cold. I considered it. Did you really yeah. By. No which one to get rid of for Carol Burnett. So I just figured we'd keep it the same. Because I'm looking at her numbers and I'm just going up, we go on run on one thing it's trouble but they're just as bad. So. Well, I can't vote and Sabrina, can't vote. Mona Lisa Mona Lisa. They're the same. So Hey, which one. The one of the longer name goes. Thanks, you. Mona Lisa frowned or way out. She wasn't that pretty. Don't you talk about aunt May that way? Not Aunt made the real Mona Lisa. I'm still I'm Marisa Tomei Mona Lisa over here. I guess the Mona Lisa's really small to paint it is. It's like. Big. Make as big as your. Picture of the art it's a little bigger than that. Okay. It's not that big. That up, there is an eight by eleven I can put it in my printer. It's no, it's a little bigger than that. It is a little bigger than that. It's. And it's great when you go in there because it's got the whole wall to itself and the. Guardrail things and all that they put up like the stanchions. And everybody's just stands there and they hold up their phones trying to get the best photo of this tiny Mona Lisa. And just go. Wow, that is a lot smaller than I. Thought. It would be when I was a kid. That's how I felt about the what is the world's largest diamond? And Dennis Smithsonian and as a kid you're expecting like this giant. Yeah diamond and you get over there and it's like. Living. It's twenty four by tall guys. Oh. Well a little bit more like it's. got. Twenty four and a half thirty, it's thirty by. Size of. Air Conditioning. Filter. And that's a little known fact it was used air conditioning filter for awhile, and that's how they stole it in the Davinci Code. Yes. I remember that Yep Tom Hanks didn't tell you that part diddy. So I. Think I think it's funny that everyone wants to take a picture of it when there's pictures of everywhere like why do you need a picture show that you've seen the real one? But I can show them in the Lou. You know it was like my big thing was getting a picture with the statue of David when I was there. Yeah. I mean, there's plows now that I gotta get a picture while I'm there. If I'm at the Louvre I'm going I'm done I've seen it. You want to close up of his penis didn't made me jealous. Diamond is the name of the diamond and own Ferrier said he's like forty five carrots. Yeah. But it's still by it's. Like it's not. Like. Maybe four inches in diameter. But it's deep. Yeah. It's at eight like me. Who you putting? For Head of household. Eli Mosque. I'm going a Java. I'm GonNa Miss Cleo because you have no, you could have gone betty white. Carol. Burnett. And let's roll for what competition this may be. You. Get my bad rolls out of the way five, five for intellect. Got The bad rules out of the way. Now, let me roll this one. Right and your numbers Care Burnett. Intellect of nine role five for fourteen. Miss Cleo. Anti elect of eight and I don't know twelve. Twenty. On Musk intellect eight rolled at twelve twenty. And JOA has a intellect to six wrote a twelve for eighteen. So Musk and Cleo, you need roll off. I know who we should put up for no matter. What are you aligning all the sudden? Why Person? Can hear you you're you're so far off the MIC. A Cleo wins even though she decided to have that whole conversation without being recorded because that's how you do it. I'm big brother you have to whisper. But we're not filming this. I was whispering who are you putting on the block? I am going to do Carol Burnett. and. Anne hathaway. Surprise, you didn't pick Miss Cleo. Machine. This you know this is why I never win. And who would you like to play for you? All right. Three people to play. She's GonNa win at all. nope. Out Not out okay. That one is. Why we can't have nice things. You get that one now. Much take to pick there's like six people left. But they're all people who've been out there left. We should have put the players in. That makes too much sense. Yeah. It's like I'm at work. You're saying. Are you still picking I. Don't think. So you hovered over the bowl for quite a long time. She does that that's why she shujaat the Internet. That's right. Okay I picked Elon Musk. A Joh- I got Betty White. Competition, will be. A intellect competition. Oh wait. That's me. Okay.

There's definitely evil in your eyes. No I'm taking a gamble. No, you're taking an evil. I've never taken any walk. I am going to replace Anne hathaway with Betty White. Not who I thought. Betty White House told you who is going after. Hobbling. Over to the. But that's not who I was looking at because they're slowly showing more. I know but I'm telling you that one's bigger threat. Can someone put some oxygen on anyway. So, that she can stay in the game and be nuts reviewing threat turbo nuts removing her oxygen. Younger than Betty. White. I Canada and So I take put, they got one of the old people. Yes. Down to jail. This CLEO's head of household Laura. Panetta myself and. The, other one. There nobody wants to attack betty white no I just think the other one in real life nobody wants to attack. I. Feel like we can give it another round. See. That's what you think and then they slipped through the crack I think the other one can be taken out. because. You know who I'm thinking yes they do and they all right. bye-bye Betty White Betty white taken in an ambulance to the hospital. Soon needed a break anyway she's gotta go either hot dogs and vodka. But. You know what? You know who I was looking at. And I think that one can be taken out. That's fine. But he's GonNa put that one for how of household right now. Or Am I. Put Up. You're not roll out. A suspect. Wall. You're all fired. There will be no severance package. Zero is still the. million. Dollars Severance package I didn't tell you. The case you wouldn't be living in these wards. One bedroom household. On the show. Studio houses are thing. Okay. Good. Well, I'm called tiny houses i. do enjoy the fact that I can reach the kitchen here. It is nice. We have to do that. I'd never had to get up and go to the bathroom. During the show. The bucket to the right of me has served its purpose to you need to go. No. Okay. The bucket to the right of the. Purpose. Well, just remember what's in the glasses not lemonade. Well, you bastards I'm putting up two zero hour for head of. I haven't done in a while Jesse got going for it. I didn't even know we still there. Yeah I know that's how jail wins says the CHARACTER ELLEN GOES I didn't even know he was still there. You know I don't think he ever did well on the show. I I only know from the Bit Mr Pictorial. All right. Ladies to you know what? I'm putting up Miss Cleo notes Barbie. I can only one person you to people to choose from. Line. Through this last time. Man It's like a bad recurring. Carol Burnett. All right role for competition. Nine oh six. Intellect. That's how Sabrina has. Really Been Sixes, but she's really nine. This is a strength, right? Intellectually. It doesn't matter. He's that good. No bad. I'm rolling Laura. So this just is not working out well, the whole game jail. I know we both been like that I've had I had what one I had. Two good ones. That was me all last year for what the five rounds that you claim you are in. All right I didn't get addicted the first round last year. Just got her. Own, his intellects a five he wrote a twelve for seventeen. Barbie. While her. Intellect is a six and eight, three, four, nine. Nine rolled eleven for twenty. So all has. Nine enrolled fifteen. For Twenty Four. He's holding up. The middle feather to all of them. I had no part of anything less time. dopey conspiring over there in front of me. Yeah. Well in that case. Rapid anyways. is going to be. Carol Burnett. and. I'm going to pick. There's five people left I. Know, right it's between two. You know I'm going to go Jesse God's. Love That's 'cause Jesse got doesn't always crack a cold one with everybody. For My. Extra pick my job while because I have no other choice. So. When we're down to like having one person say I went had a household with like whoever's left us a one? I still have to put them up. I can still become head of household. Yeah. That's how I think that's how we've been playing it. Okay. Just making sure. I need a different one just getting stupid. Yeah their head of household right now. A ONE A two. A three crunch. All right. What competition are we playing? Four for strength no intellect to what I said that into my. So do we need to know who else is in? Yes, I picked Anne hathaway. I picked Miss Cleo. I picked Barbie. Wow Laura. You're stacked on this one. Yeah. So Sabrina. I've got one person. Let's see. Here we go. That's been me a lot. By by. What did they intellect rate intellect. Well. I'm not going to have much of a factor in this one. Son Poisonings making which. You've been sunburned for two weeks All right. So two zero AL has a intellect nine enrolled four for Thirteen Carol Burnett. Interactive. Nine, eighteen, twenty seven. Rigged. Jesse Gutter it's. Like a five I rolled a seven for twelve. JOA has a intellect of six role to five for eleven in hathaway until eight role two, three for eleven. Miss Cleo. And Selective April the sixteen for twenty four and Barbie and selective six role to thirteen. Nineteen. Pretty smart for hunk. Of Plastic. That's because she's an astronaut, a lawyer, a doctor, the president. Single mother, a divorcee, and she got all of the stuff in the divorce. SIXES under. Carol Burnett are you I'm removing myself. Yourself that's weird. I figured it wasn't GonNa win this one. So I will be back door and Miss Cleo. You're not thinking through again. Again. You do this every year. I don't think she's his biggest threat. Sure. She has these same stats that Mona Lisa did her stuck around or ever. Will you're not willing to talk to me. You have numbers sort of you. These same sheets I do and you put me on the block against the strongest person at heart of this game is you're allowed to talk strategy and you always talk strategy after I. Make my moves.

CIA has a strength of four road. Eleven fifteen. Carol Burnett. Sank three rolled or one for four. And Barbie by be has a strength of six enrolled than eight for fourteen.

He Lawn Musk pulls it out once again. Somehow. Feel every year you sit back and then suddenly Pulau wins at the end. I feel that's why I'm GONNA put up a Java and Carol. Burnett I feel like you do. which leaves. Barbie. To play. Let's see what the challenges. To sex intellect. At least I have a chance. Feel like that's she? Hit the bottle cap. That's how she's been doing it. She bounces off the bottle cap every. All already lawn. Gone eleven overall. Joe Has Twenty Four Overall Carol Burnett Twenty one overall and Barbie Eleven. A weird twist of fate I'm leaving. No. Barbie and Carol. Burnett. which leaves the question. Of Its She has been head of household and this is the first time barbies actually know. I was thinking of something else I got confused but Carol Burnett. But thanks for letting me play this long. Narrow your first year hey, we got to think that I choose really good people. We got this great game, but you're out in five. Six because I didn't go out the first round. To how now that we're down the three? How do we do it? To. Use The restroom you people get to fight over people He's a plus that I never. What's IT GOING TO BE? All right final head of house-. Bring a has it in front of her? So we have one should we have Sabrina roller to be impartial? Sure. We have Barbie Musk and Joe Joe. Not just any Jolla the. Wall. Headed Jolla in here before I never had a job before I always have a star wars care. You pick too Jolla time. If dot it was just sub kid t to person it's always a minor. Minor I never. Ever admit to. Eighteen so minor. He will in the movies he's very minor. He is. He's. He's got a brother in the books. He's got a breath new life with. The. Mandatory and even though it's not.

Nope, never there when you need it. Barbie well, Barbie has an intellect of intellect. It doesn't matter both numbers sex associated twenty one, she wrote a fifteen. Wow birdy comes through in the Clutch Yulon Musk. Intellect of eighty, nine for Seventeen So we have musk and ajar on the block. All, right. So power of veto. Sabrina. Strength. Strength. Great. Strength. Barbie. Has a strength of six? She Roll The sixteen for Twenty. Two. On Musk. He's got a twelve overall. Joe Has Twenty Four. put it out in the Clutch Navy and so we have the worst finale. Barbie Anna Jaw. You mean jails not going to win this year. For the first time ever Guys I really. Don't care who wins. Change. How do I know the truth because I picked my cast based upon getting eliminated in the first five rounds All right we'll take a break as we add up the numbers. Those points Head of household and power veto. It's the terms the winner I can already tell you it's to to you had to power vetoes I had one hundred household. Oh it's too too. So they have to vote jail and want to win. Okay. It's a secret vote right on a piece of paper. vote between doing a secret vote you say allowed Okay Barbie Barbie. So we're doing a secret vote. You couldn't get me my first. Congratulations Laura. You Win Big Brother Twenty twenty coronavirus addition. With the worst character to ever play. I Take Barbie. I really did. Has. She joins softball characters who I can't write like Buffy, the vampire slayer LEX luthor and there's one more. Here's one more. Who is my other one? I thought it was another wrestler all. Year I'll tell you. Didn't win but she definitely played spoiler for a lot of people. Who was the first person eliminated our big brother? Ever Hitler the Rock. Because, Nicole wanted to get rid of the rock. Because she went he's too strong but meanwhile, she had Zach F- Rod who has the strongest person out there and she made him even stronger than the Rock and I looked at Chris and I said, we need to get rid of Zach Ephron. He goes. Yeah you're right. We need to get rid of Zach fraud and it took us like four turns to finally do it but we finally got rid Zach because otherwise he probably would have won the whole thing and that year we was number two questions Zach Ephron strength the it wasn't super duper gigantic buff sack Ephron at that point it was shortly after high school musicals. Pre Baywatch Zach like right before watch came out where he was in super shape but he was not the steroid monster he is today. Up Congratulations Laura. As winner you have to by everybody around all right I already do that anyways. So Speaking of rounds. Oh. Me and he took my line. No new. Gutter Way Gray. Law. Way. Mellowing. Let us rate this beer. What is this again? It is from Hidden Springs Brewery there man child. PBS Jay Berliner. Alright Sabrina your first. it wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be. You always says. It. Wasn't as hard as a sour, but it was still like up there. It smelled like tricks. Six tricks like. Rabbit. But it was only like tricks that had been left sitting in a bull for some time without melt like they were still trick late yet because it was like that strong smelling. Like mushy peas. No. But Laura said it smelled like mushy peas with the first time she smelled it. Yeah, because you you got Pantley I just think she be smelled sweet. Well and it was like you got a sweet taste but then then kickoff peanut butter was in there. So it was. More Pineapple. No. Don't think about it too hard. Keep going. Explain later. So four. Four I'll go next. I. Wish it wasn't a sour I think I would have liked it a lot better. If it wasn't a sour, it's the tartness that really turns me off I. I like the flavor at first and then I'm I'm sucking in my cheeks. It yeah we would have raised this way higher if it wasn't a sour. I actually don't taste any peanut butter. It's like all grape smell the peanut butter does I didn't smell it. It's like tricks mixed with peanut butter. Tricks. Yeah. twix, Trixie Twix, it's one of those two things it's sixty tricks. I often put twix in my tricks when I eat them. I'M GONNA go. If. I'm having between the two or three I'm I'm going to because of this hour no sour probably would have given it a higher score to. Bore. Excited that it was a PB and J. that wasn't a stout because I am not a fan of stout would have been better as a stout and now I don't think. So but a lot of peanut butter chocolate in there. Yeah. A lot of peanut butter ends up being in a stout can of beer I typically like the sours better because I like tart. But I don't know of the smell was off putting to me. But? I did not like the way it smelled at all and I think taking a sip of it with the smell was not good so. I didn't think it was overly Hartley Chris. Did may cheeks never puckered lake once? but it still wasn't something that I would be excited have again I'm gonNA give it to like it was there I'll drink it but now A to beer master. I liked it. It had good flavor the aroma of the peanut butter in there it was really good and I. For a sour thought, it was really good. I don't typically like sour. So this was a pleasant surprise when I had it. Over I probably give it a four. Hour, I don't think I could drink a six pack of them in one sitting but I, think the drink ability is pretty good. And overall a decent beer. So far from you. Yeah. to. Well we survived another big brother. And most of us. Are Still Friends. I am not friends with any of you people anymore because I wanted my first win. But I guess my let my wife win. Three. I was so excited when my jaw was like. Had the high score. It did him no good. Because you people. I mean you people I mean you people He means US podcasters. So. Jail Win O. Win Jail Win and Laura. It let the history book show. I got second-place. Finally. I'm the first loser. Now they can play. First place is always the first loser. It's backwards master. Pride and being I out. Two years in a row guys see me as a huge threat and I'm okay with this. New Keep, telling yourself that you need to worry about your rankings and maybe you have some that fly under the radar. Even, when I have people that flew under the radar no, you get out. Yeah. Because Ron Weasley was like a six and a four. I. Still not. Under. The radar enough. Really, because it's always been lower than yours. And you that of one? been lower. Lower than what Laura has now yeah. Barbie was a six six new. Yes, and the whole reason Barbie flew under the radar so much because five and eight and nine and threes on somebody's. Kept sticking around entire list. Barbie. Barbie is twelve and Carol Burnett was twelve but yes, there you go. Barbie waivers was more in one category than the other and was the category that we were rolling more Barbie winning. This is like when Josh one real big brother, the guy who slam the pots and pans together throughout the whole season. I don't know what you're talking. He is the worst winter that year there's so many people. Winter. barbies a bed winner Roy but the jaw would have been a bad winter to sleep on the couch. Tonight jello would've been a bad winter too.

"He Looks Like A Fantasy Monster!"

"Hello there welcome to fantasy focus. Baseball beautiful thursday morning april fifteenth. Twenty twenty one We celebrate jackie robinson day. Seventy four years ago. He debuted for brooklyn with courage and bravery made history. Try to have a little fun on today's show. Welcome to tristan. Happy cockroaches kyle soppe. He produces researchers. And i'm merely eric caravel. Trista was a lot of fun last night watching carlos road. Don no hit. Cleveland could have been a perfect game. And i'm rooting for that. Because man. what a ride for this kid this. Nc state lefty who you know he debuted like five or six years ago and was always like i think two thousand fifteen. He was always kind of like on the verge of really being relevant fantasy baseball and then last night. He's throwing ninety eight ninety nine in the ninth inning. And i'm thinking is relevant now. What are your thoughts. Yeah i love the romance of baseball. I'll put it to watch a game like that. That brings up my spirits about this game after. I'm getting so aggravated about the increasing debate about the extra innings role. But that was a lot of fun to watch i was. I was crushed when he hit roberto perez with that pitch in the fut- because you know what that is a filthy slider that he throws and that thing just broke a little bit too far and caught him on the top of the foot and to see them lose a perfect game like that. What he was so closes is really rough but it was a great moment for him. You know i mean i know. A lot of people probably didn't benefit from it in fantasy. But i think it's a pretty big story because you mentioned he was headed for greatness before the tommy. John surgery if you remember you. And i discussed carlos for don on the show and i had mentioned him as my next clayton kershaw. I really thought that he had the kind of upside. And this is the first time in probably three years. We've seen even a hint of that first pitcher to throw a no hitter. John surgery was in two thousand and nineteen and again. This is a fantasy baseball show. So that's the first one. Since the time. I saw that on twitter so it must be right. I it was i within two years after. Maybe that maybe that is what it is either way like. It gives us hope that this can happen to somebody who who's had so. Many injuries had a shoulder problem for a while and that scares us a lot more. The knee elbow. So when you see something like that you're you get a little bit of hope. I mean joe. Musk growth through no hitter of the first week. Now you have on either. We're going to have like double digit. No hitters this season. The hitters can't catch up to speed especially in cold weather in april. And we're going to see somebody like flirt with a no hitter like all like every week literally. I am not even being facetious there. I just i. But i guess we should get to the point on road on like his next outing is monday morning. That's right monday morning in boston. Patriots day game. So if you're going to do weekly lineups. You've got to do it either sunday night or early monday morning eleven. Am that game starts and you can say whatever you want about lineups locking on a daily basis whether this rain outs or or games postponed. They're gonna lock at first scheduled game. That happens on a lot of sites loading ours. Now it's gonna lock eleven. Am whether they play that game boston or not. Are you using rodion. Next week his schedule is boston. Then texas and then cleveland if if all goes well and to those teams don't hit at all yeah and the texas was really the hook for me. I mean. I think my concern with the boston outing is just what we saw from. Just joe must grove coming off the no hitter. Four innings was eighty one pitches that he threw And that was a little when he was struggling. Laboring a little bit more through the outing. I think that could happen. A little bit with rodin. Boston has bats in there. That could present him some problems but most of my leagues lean towards the weekly lineups and therefore because wrote on we'll be aligned for the two starts. I would start him here. The other thing too is we gotta dig a little bit into what road on. Did i mean the guy average ninety five point two miles per hour with this four seamer. It's the fastest. He's seen at any point in the major leagues. His slider is breaking to a much greater extent. That it didn't in the past couple years. You could see that in the game if you're watching it and i think that because of where we're at in the season you need to grasp to any subtle changes. You see like spy away. The other thing too is. He's getting huge. He's getting a lot of extension on his pitches. He's releasing the ball a lot closer to home plate in addition to the fact that he's throwing it harder he's releasing closer it's giving hitters less time to react and i think that makes them a bona fide starter right now for fantasy. I don't know what the volume's going to be. But i've got him in there. I've got a minute for that game of got him in there for my weekly's and i think he got to get on board with that and any other pitchers who see who i've i've i wrote two of them yesterday who've made subtle changes you need to make the stash a case of where you and i talk about. Let's try and sell them high because value will never be higher. Not so sure. I don't think anyone gives you anything for him. I think you've got to get on board for the ride so not to give away everything you wrote about your excellent article on wednesday but i was cobb was on your list of ads and i found that a little surprising. So would you rather have rodin or cobb for the rest of the season and fantasy. I'd rather have done because think the stuff is filthier than yeah. It's easy to say that coming off a no hitter. But i do think when you're throwing ninety five you've got a slider like he does. All of his pitches look a lot better. And he's made a delivery change. He worked with his pitching coach during spring training to do that. There are more reasons. They're they're more more boxes. Checks checked by moving on to some other names christian yelich with a back. Injury continues to sit hoping to avoid the angeles daughters have already done it Are you concerned about yell. It's because he did not play well in two thousand twenty and now back for a hitter who we need power and speed from s. That's that's definitely worrisome. It definitely is and if you know anything about yellow twenty slumps he hits the ball on the ground more than half the time. He does have much less fantasy potential. And that's what scares me about the back issue so yeah. I'm a little bit alarmed seeing this half a houston's lineup is out with the co vid- But they can be back tomorrow. So safety protocols. Its safety brian. So you know like how i miss. Jd martinez hitting three homer game on sunday. Just you have to be aware of the news a season all the time. That's what's scary. It's a little different than like angleton. Simmons he's out for at least ten days because he is who he is So they'll have different shortstop mex- freed with a hamstring injury. He is where he was not pitching. Well ugly very ugly start to the season with fourteen earned runs. Twenty three hits in eleven innings. And you're much more often than i was Now i'm not a fan at all and atlanta's slumping this week. What are weird season. Like you know like streak you rise But your thoughts on freed. Obviously it all. Let's let's get right to it in an espn standard league. Do you use stash him keep him around or you just dump them for road on or cobb. I don't think you're in a position where you have to let them go. You probably don't have a full injured list yet. And if you don't. I would go out of my way to try to keep max freed around there. You look at some of the pitch election. I don't see any significant shifts. There's nothing here. That screams panic. It could just be small sample noise but if you had to do it you've got a full injured list. Dropping rodion is not an outrageous move in our standard game in the ten team. Mixed or or shallower concur moving onto a recap of where we saw already this week. Ramon lorry-owners running wild to multi games eight steals for the season a lot more than the last year and he ran a little bit. I mean he had like twenty steals in his first full season of action. But this is a pace well. The pace is crazy. But is ramon laureano going to be a forty steel guy this year because i would rank them in the top hundred. If i knew that this is this is why what he's doing. I mean they've got a leadoff guy. Mariano gets on base. They've got the mat-su corner infield after him scorn. You knocking him. In this is a different raimondo. Around it's pretty exciting. It definitely is. And i thought we would. See some rebound. I didn't see anything close to this. But what i like about laureano. And this is oakland's approach overall. They've got a lot of great defensive players as he is one of those ones whose defense is going to keep him in the lineup and a premium lineup spot. I love the aggressiveness. I think he's got the speed to back this up. Forty steals you throw needs thirty two more stolen bases to get there. That's not completely out of the realm of possibility. I would recommend people target twenty twenty five the rest of the year. But that's very good. That's a huge rebound. I wrote about some stolen base guys in my wednesday column there and no i mean this. This is a lot of fun these that he's doing this Adam duval's had a nice week a bunch of homers rbi I hate when people say slow. Start to the season. It was like one week where he didn't hit like his freddie freeman off to a slow start. I mean like it's so early. You can't really acknowledge anything. But i think in july we would never do it for one eight ten thing in july. We know what i'm always you know. He's he could be a twenty five homers fifty hidden guy even with miami. That's what he is right. So if you add him. Expect it'll be ebbs and flows but it will end up somewhere around. There could be more he could be. You know. i don't know this year. So larry i suppose but i i mean we kind of know what he is at this point. Yeah i mean mind. The matchups lean on the weeks with more games lena. The weeks he's facing weaker. Pitching road games where he's in good. Ballparks i mean that's divall is you adding jed lowrie he's hitting we knew he could hit once with the mets or his health wouldn't allow to but he third for oakland. That's a that's an. Rbi guy that's ninety rbi guy. That's third for oakland and they move olsen two fifth. Yeah the that happened. Did he pick up the ten. Th game at second base yet is getting. Keep an eye on. That folks are ruled. Espn is ten games in season. And larry larry's one game away but there's going to be other guys who who are adding. Nobody loses their eligibility overseas. But there are guys were adding eligibility everybody off the top of your head who's adding eligibility. That's important yeah. We have some. That added lowry very quickly on him. I was actually considering putting him at second base on my rankings but then realize he didn't qualify that makes it tough because he was only d. h. i. i. By a little bit. It's just the injury history. You gotta be real careful with him but when he's healthy is good the reds because of the infield shifting jonathan india picking up second base. Mike juarez suarez has shortstop yep wow that's a big deal and there was another infielder who picked up an additional spot. A hero hasn't gotten their first base. Not that you would use there But yeah i mean if he doesn't hit nobody's going to give me rostering them. Think marcus semi and might have picked out. He did get semi and did kind of life is short. Like there's some. There's he had lunch. He had short soon. Jarred wall should outfield. that'll be helpful So yeah to keep an eye on that all right so here. We go tyler glass now. Corbin burns apparently there was a poll. i guess on twitter about this From our friend kyle Who's the better fantasy baseball pitcher over the next five years and fifty four percents the glass not to forty forty-six for burns. I don't know about that. I mean. I still worry about glasnost. Staying healthy now. They both look mazing so far. I mean they're not walking anybody to striking everybody out.

I i love corden burns and so the personal bias is gonna swing in that direction for me. But i do think that's competitive. I'm with you. That glass now has shown us enough injury history over the past couple years. I understand why we are more scared. But his stuff is pretty comparable. It's top shelf. Cy young caliber when healthy. I mean burns in eighteen and a third innings against the cubs. Bad offense cardinals average twins. Excellent offense has allowed four. hits foreheads. Neria walk thirty strikeouts. That's an amazing start thirty days. No walks is amazing to do that. The person heard of yeah. I would take burns but not because of what he's done so far i just i. I liked him better to start. The season started for healthy. Did you did. You actually have burns ranked over glass now. I don't know but i think i did. I think i did. I think it was close but burns like top twenty and i don't. I don't know if i did glass now but let me look look. I don't even. I mean i'm updating pretty much once a week so we'll just see what i have now because that would tell me okay so you check that. I'm going to not have glass. Now ahead actually burns fourteen glass now. Fifteen so yeah. It was at the beginning. This is the thing with burns amazing breakthrough year last year and so far. I know three start sample. The underlying metrics on his roth stuff have actually approved again which is extraordinary if you think of what he did last year so this could very well be if he gets up to the two hundred innings pitched thirty plus start threshold. He could be a bona fide year. Over your scien- candidate a traitor for casey mayes league yesterday which is very unerring. Like trade for a young starting pitcher so far Well there were contracts involved so it made sense. I was trading. I treated a forty nine dollars. Bryce harper who. I wouldn't have kept my teams already out of it I got a thirty one dollar. Denver's and i got my is at eight and i thought that was fair You know. I mean it's not gonna help me win the league this year but if casey is emerges i mean like any looks like he is. He's throwing harder. Looks good so far. But it's early casey mice. Can you see a pathway to him. Being a top thirty fantasy. Starting pitcher for us i can. It's a big leap to take did not amaze spring training. You and i talked about that. But that last start he just had. He looked like a different pitcher and so far and yes small sample. The velocity bump is pretty darn significant. He'd be on my list. We're we're talking about rodin before about guys who've made improvement so yeah i'm i'm willing to listen and the ceiling is in that group. I wanna take my over rudin rest of the season. I'm not close. Mayes did against the twins and astros good line-ups an astros had their concerns. Blake snail stephen strasburg. Who concerns you more strasbourg. I think he's really hurt down Before we talked about that before it out a little bit is it significantly down. I'm taking. I mean look like snow. Couldn't get through the first inning against pittsburgh fine joe. Musk couldn't beat them fine. It happens but snell wasn't throwing strikes thirty eight pitches and couldn't get out of the first. That's a big problem. He's not gonna win a lot of games even on a very good team became co five innings. I think the difference here is i. Don't think strasberg's healthy as significantly down. It's matching the one one or two starts. He had last year. So that's bad. Sign all right clear sign. We need some song from you so sing it. It's the closer carazo. It's the closer carousel. Jillian nari weather's on the injured list and that's bad news That was an oblique. Strains we probably don't see him again until may and everybody's adding jordan mono but i think it might be raphael dough lease does it matter and is mary where they get the job. As soon as he's healthy there's no guarantee of that either. It matters because that team will contribute save chances but i do think that could lean committee. Unfortunately i mean as you mentioned dollas did get the ninth inning and key situation against the yankees. It could very well be just a division of save chances the entire year but that i'm on board with all three pitchers rest of the season. Who would you rather have. Kendall gravina seattle or raphael montero already blown three saves. You feel confident. Mattera keeps his job much longer. If he keeps giving up runs he's not giving up anything grave excellent. He's another guy in the list of subtle pitch selection improvements on board with that. It's hard for me to make the case for agreement over montero fun buying today for the rest of the year. But i it's you can make the case without graven to me like an older version of mary where the where this come from grade was never this good. He was a grandma guy now. Soaring hard statcast us made huge advances for players. In the fact that are looking into that you know good for them. I'm glad all right. I've been avoiding this. Craig kimbrel like really i just. I've been avoiding talking about him. Because i think that as as we say that he's safe again as top ten fantasy closer. Some really really bad going to happen but six innings no hits. Whoa only one walk ten strikeouts. His team can hit but he's not allowing anything. He looks fantastic. Are you buying this. You somewhat yes. I'm trying to remember the exact year here i think. Yeah it's the two thousand nineteen. I feel like kimbrel. The twenty twenty one is kenley jansen. Twenty nine thousand nine hundred. Maybe not quite to that top shelf level but you know. He's pitching better than johnson did. That's the year he blew. Eight saves at three seventy one era and you and i were getting so frustrated with them. There's no competition it's kimball. Job does absolutely no competition. The question is does does he. Just start walking tomorrow without warning whites the janssen coaster ride of two thousand nineteen. I guess so I picked up jimmy garcia league. It's pretty clear. He's the closer for miami and he can keep that job for a while yet. So actually feel pretty confident. Jimmy garcia keeps that job. I picked him up over luca sims. Who may get as. But i don't see a pathway to him getting like twenty five saves reds bullpen. Is pretty darn fascinating by the way. Three pitchers that i find intriguing fantasy purposes i. I don't know what they're gonna do at tj antone. I don't i don't think he's gonna start. Workload is long relief role. He almost had a four inning. Save and will great one out away. Tj antonio's the michael kopech of the national league. Yeah he looks fantastic. And by the way devin williams looks terrible. No longer set up man. For in. Milwaukee i yeah i am already cert- probably is and look. This is why you don't invest in keeper leagues in relief pitchers closers or otherwise. I saw people spend so much money in auctions on devin williams. And i'm like you're crazy not always not going to get saves. But there's no way he's going to repeat that. I didn't think he would be this bad so early. But like relief pitchers it changes so fast day to day anyway. That's enough of that greg holland. Kansas city you can't. You can't feel good about this but i don't know who the saves there do you. Probably he gets the majority but they've made clear signs that its committee based They got josh stormont back after that one. That's another guy. One day coverted injured list in. They've got wade davis there who i think. Got a chance at one point. They got scott barlow. Who's got the stuff to close. It's just a frustrating situation. Hollins probably relevant in the fifteen team. Mix where you have to get your saved and the al only all right time for the combo meal. Sing that one of you will be gumbo meal. Did did combo combo do. It's a combo meal whole run plus steel and he's dancing around like i see him on thanks to squad. Cast for helping us here. He's dancing around in his basement. And he's got to get into yankee shirt and like his fingers appointing like he's shooting someone. It's just amazing. What he's doing is on his little dancer. Okay you know all the thumbs and fingers and by the way to people asking on twitter while we don't use actual sounds of music. None of us are in the studio so we can't. We're all sitting at home in our basement. So combo meals tuesday charlie. Culbertson of all people had one. Which makes me think of josh. John was healthy. He would be texas rangers third baseman right now. Texas does not have a third baseman. They they moved the third baseman short. They traded their shortstop terrible andrus and now culbertson. Playing third base left these mostly. Yeah right but like i've junk hadn't brought. I think what what happened to josh. John let me look it up. He had an injury that sidelined more. It yeah yeah there was something. I haven't been a league and i was like oh good. Yeah i think it was a broken foot or something like a month. Plus so so. He won't be playing until june. So i'm not sure john contributes this year by the way. That injury was worrisome. Enough where did they had a cornucopia combo meals gregory polanco of course against moscow jazz chisholm. Who's so much fun and bogus. Shit that toronto middle infield man is is fantastic. I mean homer steals semi looks. Great shit looks great Bogus looks like a i. i wonder if we're ranking boba. Show where we do trade turner. Next season i really do. I'm wondering why i'm not doing it. Now why do. I not ibobi shut on my top. Ten of my rankings. I'm considering it. Oh i think you know why. It's just the samples if it were. What do i need to see like injury. We need to see more than whatever was sixty five career games coming into the feel really good about bo bishop in your cat now gonna earn that trust by the end of the year. So when you meant you can't tell me you can if you want. But i don't think you can tell me that. Trae turner will have more home. Runs a shot or more steals. It could either way. I think bobby shadow straight turn right now. Tell me that's wrong in the healthy games. You know you have them. Sure you've sold me on that. Why are we doing shit. Like number nine overall because we have not seen the level of performance and durability in him at the major league level that we have from trade turner now turner's miss some time but turner's got a longer track record. That's all it is well in my next update. I'm going to do that. And also union my new number one over. Mookie but that's the case worse bishop ranks present sheds top eight. I'm gonna move into like number nine or ten and turner's like seven or eight. I mean i think. I think we haven't seen enough. It's it's tax day or should have been tax day. So it's it's very early but to me. Bogus shut. looks like a fantasy monster like twenty homer thirty steal guy and maybe trae turner's twenty homer. Thirty-five still guy but not running that much. I i think i think that's returner. I know you know in a month. You could tell me i'm wrong. I'm an idiot. i don't. I don't have a major problem with that. There's a difference between the guy for one sixty two at on draft day and today going with the hot hand while you have them and yet on a per game performance i think they are pretty comparable wanted to say my next rankings. We'll have a kunia run. And i will make room for shot in my top ten because i think that's belong. I don't know who i'm pushing out. Well yellow job is no longer top. Ten that's one that i could definitely push your tux. I don't think he was just outside. Wasn't he look when he would have been close. I am twelve. He's moving down. You know hers out. If he was a candidate bellinger was not. I had bellinger way. I her way after you. I hadn't twenty seven and and smart freeman's eleven now degrom call bieber. I think they should move up. I turned five. I think deserves a spot you know. Maybe jose ramirez now. The cleveland line of so bad. I wonder for mirrors goes twenty-five and eighty and fifteen because the apathy around him. That's not a good lineup is what he's telling me. Photoshop versus francis curling door. Think i'm taking bichat now. I don't think there's going to steal a base batting where he does. You raise the question and we're dead on this. That i think lindores a bit overrated for purposes. Not doesn't mean he's a bad player. A player people think of them as one of the first five names off their head. That's not what he is looking at the schedule. Here and trying to find pitchers that matter thursday chris. Paddock's game is probably already started our muscles rain. I'm not gonna watch the phillies jake. Degrom zeal. strong know what watch the phillies scored. Four runs off the ground. When they couldn't hit. David peterson or wednesday. I didn't even watch i turned. I watched something else. I watched the seventy sixers. They are going to score. Four runs because that fits. The degrom never gets a win narrative. It's unbelievable how they don't score for him. Holy aureus at home against colorado. That's a given just a give in colorado on the road is definitely a match up to exploit everywhere which shows on espn plus tonight at home against texas. Texas can't score but i don't chills going five innings so a matchup. I mean tampa a very pitching friendly ballpark too. Yeah patrick corbin. Revenge game against arizona about are you using. That's after how he looked in the first game in this time are you because arizona's that's starting to like the nfl version of texas you take christopher walk. Goes on the deal. And you say oh. What look at their lineup. No cabrera's hitting cleanup no marseille walker. It's just it's bad josh Ross not doing much of anything and by the way great springs. Money tweeted us about spring training staff. We told you not to look at spring. Training stats josh. Ross was not going to be awesome this season. I mean who who were the other guys is portraying. They were just fantastic and we said come on. You know in fairness josh. Different pitchers are different yet. But you know what. I don't feel bad at all about being wrong on josh ross. Because he cost you absolutely nothing. When i met wrong. It's only ten days two weeks. He cost you. Yeah exactly. That's the thing but he's not playing. That's the problem. They're not gonna play him now because they have a healthy nick. I'm ed and they're good with rare when when a manager doesn't play. A guy is a reason this alexandra. Von that's ridiculous but like when a mannerism playing a guy like josh. Ross should be them everyday especially when they're not going on from that too but but the thing was real house asking change broad coaching. You're gonna play ross. Two weeks ago is how. I feel about alex today. You have got to take chances on guys who could develop and you need to be prepared to move on. And that's what role has cost you. And that's all mckinstry. Critics have mad. I did not get him in. Various leagues like now where. I needed stuff this year. But like keeper leagues. Like because. I think he's this year's j. krona worth. I think he's gonna hit. He's gonna play everywhere. Lefty bat not twenty homers not twenty steals to ninety with a lot of everything that is a play him a lot. So you don't have cronin worth keeper league. I should have gotten mckinstry. i just didn't do it. I messed up. Friday's schedule are. This is interesting one and this is for your value. Dfs option for friday night. Mike fulton knezevic Against baltimore look good against the padres and his last adding and frankie montage against detroit. Detroit actually scores now because akil dues especially it looks like a man. He's been great. Looks great. I mean i just i. I'm a little bit cautious but fulton vs montage and you think that's ridiculous but fulton numbers looks good so and he's probably cheaper on the f. S what are your thoughts on these. He probably is cheaper. And that's a key here. Is that if he is. I'm probably going to with these two one of as my second guy at a lower price. I i personally like montas better and the i'm trying to trying to see where i have a that. That detroit line. Compared to baltimore's at the time i had i'd say pretty similar not a lot of scary guys. Footballers got power santander types. You know i think baltimore more but who knows if really gonna hit twenty five home runs and that changes everything. Baltimore is baltimore actually. Detroit is the forecasters got detroit as the worst offense against ready okay. Mets course. field who've fund for mets hitters. Peter lonzo hit. A couple of home runs their joe. Casey on espn plus on friday night. Do not want casey even at city field. You'd don't want them. In course just heads up their game. It's gonna rain on thursday today. Grams gonna start a cores now. I'm not saying that's one hundred use of you have to use them. You use them anywhere you use them in a little league field. Come on jake degrom but this is the thing in. Dfs a lot of times the pro. Ninety s. I don't use them at the time. The pricing is based on. What they presume the starter would be so be really careful with assuming. That guys facing degrom are bargains. They could be being priced at the lower at the lucchessi level. Just be careful. I think that should be a drop lucchessi level saturday. Espn plus as luke weaver. In washington last outing was good. Seven shutout innings against the reds. Who sometimes score. And sometimes don't look over to me seems like somebody you would be interested. I know you have in the league and You know he should be good and he's not the right handed for don because he hasn't had the same years of injuries but look we're supposed to be really got us washington. I think the one you're thinking of trade him. But i do like him and that was the reason i had them. Yeah i probably would use them. I mean i don't think i'd use them in. Washington isn't one of the best matchups you could ask. You know he's kind of middling leaning to okay or here's an interesting name that you might wanna use over him. I'm per probably pronouncing his name wrong. Atlanta's right hander. Who oscar noah. He's at wrigley field. The cubs are awful offensively right now. That should change. But if have you are going to strike out almost literally half the time and they have no depth and bryant looks terrible resolute. Terrible mean to us. Noah's why noaa you know what i'm talking about. I'm not trying to pronounce it wrong but a is less adding was good. It was like ten strikeouts at wrigley are using them. And not just the offense in fantasy as well i mean. Are you picking them up for that outing. I think i would. Yeah and he did look good enough in the last adding Caught a little bit of it. That i'm encouraging you might as well exploit the the streak there. I know there's so much anti streak discussion but there has been some data to suggest that it's worth exploiting called hot streaks especially you know in a in a matchup space. I'm just not locking him in long-term baseball on espn app. Chicago pitchers are mentioned here. Maybe you know. The pitchers tristen but Watch the game anyway. Because it's baseball. It's the only game on at that time and it's on our But atlanta is a lot of chicago so hendrix. I guess we're waiting to see what happened the other day. This is the injury day where max freed. Spot was there so a tvd. They're talking. Bryce wilson probably and chicago's is where do they slotted in. Kyle hendricks does he come in. The series are dizzy series. So you know you're in a weekly you need a streamer for sunday tight head to head week. Let's look and see who's available here sunday. That might be available in your league. John gant at philadelphia phillies. Aren't hitting you know you can make that case. There must be somebody better than that for all those probably taken. If he wasn't. I'm out too soon. Ready paroles at this point. Your league john means texas. I mean if john means the us about texas for sure absolutely absolutely by the way his opponent in that game call. Gibson is on the list of some subtle statcast driven number. Let's look at better numbers. Didn't have one good outing. One bad let me. I want to look it up. Make sure i get it right but contact us down fifteen percent for kyle gibson this year. I'm i'm another case of three heating. He got one out in his opening start against kansas city. And since then he's giving up one run over. Two outings against tampa in toronto makes no sense. But he's not a strikeout guy right. he's a little more k. oriented this year. But it's a three start sample but again. Throw your darts. I'm not wild here. You're like if you need to load. I meet You know again. We don't know if he's available in your league or j rizzi second outing. This one's at seattle i. Do you trust jake. Good or bad first outing and we don't know who's playing for houston by this point. Yeah that's the thing we need to know who's playing for houston in that game so keep an eye on. The lineups are seattle's a good match up. It's certainly a top aide matchup. I'm a no one busy. I need to earn his spot in my line of before i had activated for anything. I think that's fair there. And by the way. Taiwan walker cores. I'm gonna say no now. He's looking good so far. But i'm going to say no because ignore the whole mets. The right off the mets pitching staff for the weekend. I grasp pitching. Then you have to get e and you probably have to use. Because that's the nature closers but you should you. Should it's only one inning facing the bottom line. Who knows by the way. Some that forgot to mention the carlos rodenstock earlier that collins in his fifteenth career game at catcher in the majors caught near perfect game. And you know we think of that collins as d. h. because he is in in espn fantasy and he'll get his couch eligibility soon but good for him. Honestly good for zach collins. That was pretty cool to have a guy who you think is not a good defender or framer or pitch caller. Whatever people think of that collins then he goes and he does that. I mean i don did that. But the catcher plays a huge role. People like any outing. Sometimes when he gets lit is because of the catcher sometimes when a pitcher doesn't no hitter because the catcher just let gophers that counts. I think it's fun i. I don't think we're going to see your mercedes. Play any cash. The season i think zach collins the backup there and and mercedeses schwarzer. Who doesn't play the outfield incredible. Incredible and mercedes is doing. I'm go every day. I said i think a week ago to seventy with twenty home runs. And i said he could be top ten catcher and i think you scoffed at that now i think a lot of people did i think it's fair to scoff. Have you changed your mind. Because i haven't. I think he can be a top ten catcher when i rang him against marina. Buster posey carson kelly. Why can't you do better than those guys i think. That's i don't even think it's bold to say top ten catcher. I don't think it's bold either. I put them nineteenth and my catcher rank is what did the update this week. and that's really a catcher. Not a far cry from the top ten status the the issue is just the career track record and that opposing pitchers will make adjustment it will. That's why i rang. Amore did but i'm with you. The high end is definitively in the top. Ten catchers and you and i mentioned he liked the all hundred kirks and to a lesser degree. Williams us to deal. Knocking gonna hurt you. You gotta be happy having your catcher spot. If either way kirk has only one hit and sixteen days or sixteen at bats and there was a homer. He's better than danny jones. He's going to take the starting catcher roll from him. At some point. I think kirk could be a top ten catches. The part of the problem is. I can't find ten catches from my top ten. I've got mercedes number nine. Don't want gary sanchez. i know. He's not striking out but i don't want him anyway. Let's move on now. Kyle comes in. He's got trivia hash browns. And lots of fun. Kyle hello to you again. what's going on. we've always got lots of fun. We'll start with the trivia. i want you to name. The four players have at least four homers and multiple steals. This season's i'm not asking you to go way. Back in the archives or anything like that. This season four homers two steals through april. Four tnt will get back to that in just a minute hash. Hashbrowns time jared watson off. It's time to if you're getting a rebound or worry when it comes to moncada in hero feels a little early still. I mean i watched your game the other day. I think more worried actually about moncada. And here's why because last year moncada looked terrible and everybody said oh because bokova well he looks terrible again and he's not making contact and he's like two hundred times a couple of years ago in a season and then he'd better three fifteen with like a four hundred bob and everybody's like eric. You're wrong okay. But if you look in moncada's batting averages for the past four seasons twenty-five three fifteen to thirty five to thirty one he's had his brady anderson season. He's had his average numbers. I don't know if you're mocatta to fifty hitter. I know that's gonna sound odd but if you're moncada hits to fifty twenty runs a season it doesn't do any bases i'd rather have kyle seager so i think we're all i don't want to jump off the bandwagon soon mocatta but i'm more worried about mocatta than sure. Tell me that's right around. I don't think there's a right or wrong answer to either of these players moncada's underlying numbers all look. They're they're dead on with twenty twenty which is a a huge concern as you outlined. But you know he's twenty five and i remember doing research on him that i thought there were pats to improve. He's just a streaky by nature player. And it's eleven games. I i would much rather have moncada than seager. Just because the high level is better than segers but i see your point that a heck of a lot safer to deliver you better. Final stats wrote allies. I i see your point there next for enough. Ross wants to know. If you like. Jared walsh dom smith both for the rest of this season and moving forward keeper leak. Love them both but dismissing my top hundred in fact i haven't ranked like number sixty and i had him ranked number sixty two months ago dom smith. Donald smith finished higher on the player last year. Then peter lonzo he's not gonna as many home runs but you can bet three hundred and okay. He's on field but he can hit. He died legitimate. Three hundred twenty-five homer which i think is more valuable than pita lonzo batting two fifty with forty homers. It's different depend depends where you need. Now jerry walsh to me. Looks like he's a to seventy thirty to thirty five run guy and i'm thinking jar. Walsh needs to be ranked top hundred yet. But he's clearly gonna play every day and it was embarrassing that he wasn't in the first week i mean honestly you're can play pool over them. I think jared rightful eligibility soon so to me jarred let me think who do. I need the rank jared walls near in my rankings. Because he's he's going to be ranked by me near the cop hundred pretty soon. I i am one fifty two so i already have a nice spot. But in my next update miguel drops to twenty. I'm done i've had. Enough walsh verse. How okay you're gonna think. This is wild but bear with me because i keep doing this on this show and every show right sadi's comps and you're like that's ridiculous but i think they make sense. Why is wall so different than matt. Olsen you're going to say because of history because he hasn't been do it for three years but what's the difference in numbers this year honestly like full of. He's not two weeks. Why can't you do that. Olson's been doing for the last couple of years. He he could absolutely do that. You have a way of scraping. The ceilings of players. And i can't disagree with that. It's best a narrow. You guys in an art game. I totally get it. The smaller league the more it makes sense to take is shooting for ceilings. Is the all in approach. But olsen has shown an extensive track record of hitting a leap power. This is the kind of guy who could. If it all clicks hit fifty home runs. Walsh is not come close to showing us that level of potential alison hit my weight. Last year. I just want to point out and walsh in september was arguably the best fantasy. Jared walls is forty three games of this. You're really going to buy in and a guy who's done. I'm not saying that. I would take him over. Also now i'm saying in two months you're gonna be looking at this and saying eric was right. Walsh can do what olson did if olsen ends up a to sixty with thirty home runs wall can do that. I might only be that yeah. You're you're missing my point. I don't disagree with that. However you're really going to take a guy who hasn't proven for a lengthy period of time. I'm not sure. I don't think confer wall so not dropping moncada for seger. I'm saying i think this is going to happen. And we're going to be thinking this way soon. Washes never made contact at the level. He has in forty three games. Never shown a track record for this is a complete monster in the minor leagues stressed. He was not our had one. Good year in the minors stor goodyear. Espn eleven hundred. Ps with thirty six runs in that one year in l. okay. Well i just look. Nobody's argument metals and isn't isn't better and isn't more has done this before. Jarwal is gonna hit to sixty with thirty home runs this year. That's what i'm saying with. How many hours thirty to sixteen thirty. I don't have a problem. I really don't think he has made the improvements that he's going to deliver that and he has a good chance of doing better. And you're right. The high end might be noticeably. Better than matt olsen's because of the batting average i think is true. Great as a to fifty to fifty five batting average. I need to see a little more evidence. Let's not contact by the way matt olsen over his last sixty nine games twenty twenty twenty twenty one to ten so with power but to ten. You don't rear to forty five hundred that also a career to forty five hitter in your arguing about jared while you tend. You tend to really discount the guys with fifty homer bona fide potential. Do you've starkly done that. And i get it. It's the nature of how you want to build your team all right. What's next market. Mcgown june seventeenth. That's gonna be our. Jared walsh i matt olsen update podcast. So make sure to tune in from today. maybe. I'm more apt to take chances on players. Then maybe tristan is and tristan leans heavily on three or staff. That's fair and then. I'm going to ask you this. You would never do that in labor. You would never do that in labor. I'm doing it now. And any dropping that olsen. I'm saying no off and labor right now would not trade i would not trade olsen for walsh. I'm saying i think they're going to the same numbers but thought meaning that we're also going to be that much better okay. It perfectly and i agree with you on all these cops. I keep saying the same way it's like of course that looks ridiculous on paper but in three months. It may not look ridiculous. That's my point. My two months one all carolina jared walsh legit. I will by the way. You gotta get credit for. Dominic smith that you're not scared by losing designated hitter period. I was down mc smith two years ago. And you know that so i was on before you were. I'm sorry but but you were correct on the fact that there's no d. h. Scare you know. I have an assembly. I love dominant asking a simple question. My ever right. Like i ever did you ever gonna ever give me credit on anything. I'm just wondering. I just told you you. You were dead on. Dominic smith and i blew it kyle. What's next max up. Sam wants to know what to do with andrew von and a twelve team league rate re patient. I think larussa. Obviously he was playing against lefties. Care careful about left field. He has to play mercedes. He does have to say these. I still think everyone's gonna hit now. I'm not saying he's going to be. Jared walsh boy von could definitely hit and there's no point in demoting. There's nothing to the modem to. There's no minor leagues right now. But if you ask me for the season. Numbers on vaughn. I would say to. Fifty with twenty home. Runs is more likely than whatever our saying Two weeks ago because he just might not play. But i mean who who you dropping them for if i dropped von for walsh. Yes when i dropped vaughan for who else have we talked about on tv show. I'm trying to think of like what i drops to. Yeah that's different. I mean what is andrew vaughn going to do this season like. That's my thing like snow. Sonos proven for power may not even be in the majors in a month. I'm trying to think of who you compare. Would you drive on for. Cj krone guests. Would you drop vaughan for carlos santana. Yeah points league definitely wrote a neat low versus von. That's a good one. Yeah that's just low lowest kind of even invite two weeks. He's been up he's been down he's been up again but he's gonna play every day. I don't know if you're going to fifty. Yeah i've got is more of a ceiling for this year. Then volant actually does like. Yeah maybe i think that's true. I i probably have very close with blonde. They had a nilo. And i prefer on because i think his skill set is hit tool is naturally better than allows more of the play for power allow could hit for a batting average and not knock nothing in texas. It's a tough call. But yeah i try to be more like another week. how about. another week on vaughn. We get back to it next thursday. I think. I think it's still going to be good. I don't think they would. They know what they wanna do. I think mercedes is screwing up vaughn. He should have been there d. h. Don't tell me playing left field gonna make it worse. I don't believe that. For a second. I i don't believe it on kangaroo sense l. Either i think will hit. I think he could play him anywhere. It but we'll see there's the guinea play third base. Your remember sadie uses. The is andrew vons problem. That's that encapsulates it. That is just now but if he hits playing left field nobody'll care field. He never should have been playing left field. It's the only way from they play. Now it's only way from the play and mercedeses problem. If look if dom smith play field enter complete left field. Both smith butchered ball yesterday. That was an error double. They changed it does was not a good left fielder. He's got play andrew von complain that field good enough to hit. Twenty home runs about two fifty. That's what i'm saying. I know just the smith comp scary because how long has it taken for them experimenting with smith and left field. That's years you can't sit them. And i know i just. It's so i. I hate it. I hate pitchers batting like nobody. Even batters aren't hitting pitchers out there. It doesn't work but this is the way it is no use complaining. What else we got kyle is finished up wants to know. Police act more of a homework guy now than he is a regular start. Kinda guy bilo. I can't explain what happened is actually said yesterday. He's really good. he's really good. And the white sox are good. They hit and exactly start before that pitched seven shutout innings with mary. I walk so now. You're gonna cut him. Know exactly sack is going to be a top forty starting pitcher this year despite the fact that he couldn't get out of the first inning barring schedule your playing him every time more of course i i don't i don't exactly second minnesota. I don't sit him against against the white sox again. I don't sit back and you know what you got late last night. So what admin a soda. The one in the american league that comes to mind that i am actually scared of his at minnesota. Look but i'm monday. You weren't scared exactly second. All this is a bad adding it'll give you fine. He's going to be okay. I'm scared of everybody. Who's at minnesota. It doesn't mean. I'm sitting them but you said top forty. Yes yes that's a. I think he has no problem. Getting the top forty you are. We already my top forty. No i mean. I'm saying that at the end of the year. It's not going to change. Nothing changes i mean. Look and see where. I have. And i might be wrong but i am twenty five. I love actually zach disappointed yesterday. And i have one of your teams and i'm like okay so i'll lose my week. But so what do you think. He becomes a top twenty. Started when you said really good. That's the that's the thing that i don't think my head. I think there's a kyle hendricks vibe there when kyle hendricks wasn't six this week where police is not a big strike out guy. But he's not a walker and he finds his way to getting outs. So i think there's i think there's a pathway to being a borderline top twenty starting pitcher. There were iran. Kyle hendricks highway. Is he does. He have cordoned burns upside now. Of course not carbon burns dresen has top five fantasy pitcher corbin burs in three months. We be talking about him in the coal the garage. You're gonna laugh at me for this. But quarter and burns has that upside. How am i gonna laugh at that. I love carbon earns court corbin. Bars might be in the top tier. Starting patchy you know. What in retrospect shame on us for not putting corden burns were walker buehler's in the rankings. Were already and moving into flaherty. I'm moving ahead. A nola corn burns in my top ten ahead. Of course he's there now he's there now. Honestly i'm i'm i'm all in and i think there's a pathway to where he's in the top tier starting pitchers right now. He's bieber he can bieber disagree the in the slightest i don. I love him kyle. We'll get back to trivia in just a second trae wanted sympathy shot. He benched ron known for a road on for last night and jd martinez the week before that hurts. We've all been there. I wanted to give him a shot up because the just really happens in fairness. He was scratched monday. And i think the only people who had them in our weekly going to starts when i look and skill and you would have used them. Daily looking at cleveland's launcher. You always would but in a weekly league. Yeah i wrote on somewhere. And i don't feel the least bit bad about not claiming a weekly. I better pictures in. There just happens. I'll bet he was active in at best twenty. Twenty five percent of the league's neck's out and could be just like us grow four innings and two runs or whatever must grow gave up this is. This is what happens in april. Baseball are back to trivia the four players with four homers to. I know this is all. I know this too because i download the stats every day. I mean i know. Toronto's middle infield done this already precipitous. Kunia is fantastic. One more of the forest guys tricky. I think it's otani good call for i did last year was gonna steal twenty bases and i think if he gets five hundred plate appearances. That's a that's a. That's a thirty home or twenty steel rightfielder. Just you know. Let's stop letting pitch just put them in right field. It's got the arm. Joe walsh out. There walls plays i. Oh yeah that's why you playing those books. It's a sunk cost and he's not bring fans out to this. I mean look hall of fame. Career all credit. Do him yati all these other guys cabrera but you. You know you can't play our pool halls Wash you can't. And i don't think they will down the stretch. If it's critical for playoff position that that'll be interesting to watch what's up. Who knows what managers want to. It's just the doesn't he. He has very loyal. He's a milestone or to to to chase. If i recall. Says i get it right now but in august september. Look i i would love to see the place mike. Trout is awesome. You know i think. He deserves to be a playoff more than a wild card game. Too and i think they can win that division. I really do think the air west white open you know houston looks awful and sometimes great sometimes awful. Every team phillies like half these teams. It's one week in great then on the road they can't score any runs. It's amazing what's happening early in the season so much mediocrity but i think the angels can we not division if bundy and copper legit like. Oh so much mediocrity. That's like the definition of the yankee season so far finishing this show by the way. Don't forget to check out the baseball. Tonight podcasts our good buddy.

The make this world that makes this place to make this community the make this society a better place to be. We've got a lot of things to talk about men in the world of sport today. I want to tackle some college football. I'm gonna get into some nba getting some nfl. Able wanna talk about even though the program. We've hit absolute rock. Bottom in the patrick ewing era even at the end of the program at the end of the podcast. I even want to get down and talk about what's going down with georgetown basketball team. They lost on tuesday. The navy seventy sixty two. I've got my thoughts and feelings about that so well that but those are the things that are going to be speaking about today on the podcast. But i want to begin with trait news in the nba. Russell westbrook traded to the washington wizards from the houston rockets for john wall and future first round draft. Pick houston that is the most paramount future first round draft pick protection on the first round. Pick that the wizards traded to houston and the westbrook for wall deal. They decided to cash it in in the twenty twenty Twenty twenty three. Nba draft pick is lottery protected. Twenty twenty four the pick. His top twelve protected. The twenty twenty-five pick is top ten protected and then if they want to wait if you want to wait all the way to twenty twenty six to pick his top aide protected then becomes two second rounders now. Jonathan fagin of the houston chronicle. He reported that westbrook wanted to go elsewhere so we can be himself on the floor man. Exactly what does that mean. what is he talking about. Clarify define a little bit more when he speaks about he wants to quote unquote be- himself. Are we talking about the wessel russell. Westbrook that won the where he averaged a triple double. Is that the himself. He wants to be at so that was income through the door and being that effective. I would like to see the be himself. Russell westbrook be the guy that the second year. When he was with paul george where george with the guy that was getting most of the shadow attempts that i wouldn't say was taking a backseat. But you know. He was starting to give more and more of the spotlight to paul george in terms of the acknowledgement that. Hey you know what. We're going to have the team that we want to have the best team that we can be. you know. i've got to be more than just sharing with paul george to give him a little bit more in terms of responsibility at least on offense with the oklahoma city thunder so with him going from houston with james harden and now moving over to play with bradley beal with the team. Tommy sheppard titley owns the such making a point with trade. That bradley beal is going to be the center piece. That bradley beal that franchise guy the bradley beal is going to be the russell. Westbrook of the washington wizards that Brooklyn no his role on a team in terms of saying look you know when everything is all said and done this state. The oklahoma city thunder the way. I had it for a couple of years especially after kevin durant left. This is bradley. Beal's team and i have to let him grow in that responsibility for for ever long. The bill was broke. Tear them is there hopefully for two or three years. But we'll see we'll see it was also reported. That houston was talked with the wizards about the potential westbrook for wall swap last month but was seeking more at a more assets which means that the two people the two players in principle were agree to wolman westbrook but it was just a matter of i guess the rockets i came out with the well. We need a first round. Pick in the whitson can be shepherd. Says it'll be. He's on manner grunfeld. Line here okay. Speaking new day new era new james. You know this is a this is going to be something else. But what sources told. Cnn was reported by age. Awards analogy that the gm. For the whiz tommy sheppard houston gm raphael stone. Had who hadn't talked two weeks on the deal connected once they afternoon and done deal. The deal was done within a few hours so basically once again. This wasn't the the goal where they were. Haggling wrangling over. What player should be traded or even the foundation of trade being west broken wall. That was there. But there wasn't something where you know you throw in this guy or you throw in that guy or the salaries were so are so similar a basically the same that there wasn't any need for to any need for any of the gm stewart talk about another player. Maybe bring another team to make the contracts amid the money right so it was just a matter of haggling over you know. What else are we going to give up. And finally it came to the came to the point where the wisdom okay. We'll throw in that future first round pick in. No you also have to give a shepherd. Kudos the fact that it is lottery protected because even what was broke. I don't think that the wizards be anywhere near championship material. Get to that a little bit later on. So westbrook is going to be reunited with former oklahoma city coach. Scott brooks spent seven years as a player and coach together in oklahoma city. In fact westbrook that was one of the main teams when westbrook remember came out earlier before training camp starting on was talking about. i wanted to be traded. And then i don't wanna play for houston anymore and james harden was talking about. He doesn't wanna play for houston anymore. He wants to be traded to the new jersey nets in the organization for houston came back and said hey you know what. We don't mind going into training camp on comfortable. I mean you got to come into training camp moping pouting throwing an attitude and everything that's fine. You can go ahead and do that. But we're not going to bail out to your whims. So far with james harden the rockies organization has done that with what was westbrook who they get bigger the less than less important player on that team said yes time for him to go and again as i mentioned before was one of the destinations that he wanted to go to the main. Destination was the washington wizards again because they thought a plane with bradley. Beal and being reunited with scott brooks the coach who had the most success to we had the most success with When he was playing for the oklahoma city thunder. So i'm on a memo saying i mean. How many players do you know out there. Who actually wanna play for the washington wizards who weren't drafted by that team. I mean no free agents are going to be going to washington terms of something of substance. I guess four community like the washington wizards russell westbrook brinson cachet. He'll bring some eyeballs. He'll bring some attention quite sure. They'll be a little spike in season. Tickets in terms of whenever they start bringing fans back into the arena. So they'll be lucky. Some more interest in dc with the wizards than there was in the last couple of years. Now one of the reasons why. The interest in the whizz went down the drain. So much was because a the team. Stunk out loud and be because john wall. The main player was in playing but now the gives washington a little foothold in the community. The football team stinks. I don't care what their record is in terms of where they are in the nfc least. The baseball team had a disappointing season. Hockey in dc is hockey. Georgetown stinks maryland. Pretty good insignificant. The wnba is the wnba. So i mean basically in dc or the dc area the area. Which is prince george's county moved gumri. County arundel county fairfax virginia. Northern virginia is the football team. And then after that. Who's ever who's ever up and down as far as the interest in sports in the dc area so at least this gives the league's acquisition at least seeing russell. Westbrook a washington wizards uniform as gonna make them better than they've been for the last couple of years and basically it's gonna draw a little bit more interest. So i mean you know let's not let's not sit here talk russell westbrook. Now we've but me. I'm not gonna sit here and talk about russell. Westbrook is washed up. He's done or he the shell of his former self. I mean you gotta remember last season. He was thirteen mold. Nba his only season with houston averaging twenty seven points. Eight rebounds seven assists per game. And he's thirty two years old and again everything that hovers russell westbrook mainly has to do with that contract. Russell westbrook playing a decent contract. Well then i would be much more. Hit parade type of trade for the washington wizards but will the company's russell westbrook the fact that he's going to be making one hundred and thirty three million dollars over the final three seasons of his contract with the player option for the final year so unlike john wall who hadn't played at all for the last two years because of injury he's still he's still old run three years one hundred thirty two million dollars on his contract at least with westbrook for the short term. We've got the better player and really what's the difference between wall westbrook figuring and they're both making the same amount of money so either way. The woods still weren't going to have less Less avenue or more flexibility. Whatever to make trades or rearrange the team or to do whatever and also because of the issues that existed between bradley. Beal in john wall. I was westbrook. Who despite the fact that he can be a little prickly he could be a little ornery he could be a little Let me say black manage of toward the media and such the teammates. It you know. Obviously he didn't get along with a james harden we've seen the beef with him and kevin durant when cagey decided to leave. Oklahoma city and go to golden state in the region were participating with because well you know he couldn't get along with westbrook because what brooks shot too much and he was ball hogging in that type of thing so that deal never went down. Because that's so that implied that russell westbrook was a band teammate. But there has been a lot of players who have played with russell westbrook guy doug mcdermott and the doc rivers kid Did a lot of players out there who talk rave about the type of team mate that russell westbrook is and if just speaking about the washington wizards right now. You had such guys as a rule tomorrow. Who's learning troy brown junior. Who's learning davis bertans. Who still learning the number one draft pick deadly denny avia who's gonna be a rookie straight from israel new culture new land new country all those type of things. I think in situations like that russell. Westbrook can be a major asset as a team. Victor deepal rate about how much you learn from russell westbrook the one year that he played with him in oklahoma city and how seeing his work ethic and seeing how we conducted themselves as teammate. He took those skills and he took that experience within the indiana and turned out. You know it turned out that over depot had the best year of his nba career and he gave a lot of the reason for that to playing with russell. Westbrook so and this situation. I think what's brooklyn really be an asset and you can also take bradley beal russell. Westbrook has been that guy russell. Westbrook has been the franchise player russell. Westbrook has been the face of the franchise. Something that bradley beal right now is learning how to do. There's another situation where westbrook being attitude. That team could be a positive. So yeah the one hundred thirty three million dollars for a guy thirty two years old. Who was a shell of his former self in the playoffs to win. This season reopened this past season. He had oblivious surgery or he has issues and the also was dealing with covert discard covert. So he came back so yeah. He wanted the same player that he was earlier in the season or midway through the season where she used in office because of the three point shooting them because of the way the space the floor allow russell westbrook to be sort of like a mini honest in terms of his ability to take the ball to the hoop and be aggressive. Score and sit above is because he finally skewed going ahead and shooting six three pointers a game coach. Mike d'antoni to the ball to the fucking who you know we're gonna we're gonna give you that i sell and for the left elbow extended right elbow extended. Just take it to the hoop and forced her will and do some things in during that time. Westbrook played great. So we'll see we'll see what happens. Because of the unique way that the houston rockets played. Think what brokers gonna have the lanes in the avenues to do what he was doing now playing with the whiz. But hey with davos bretons in the lineup. In on the floor hit with hit three-point shooting in the way that he could stretch the floor bradley beal within three point shooting shooting scoring the way that he can stretch the florida be able opportunities for russell westbrook to do what he does best if he can if he can just kinda calmed himself down from jacking up too many threes but again last season with houston twenty. Seven points eight rebounds seven assists. That sounds pretty good for me so here on world of sports i'm your host of wonderwall glad that you could be with us. What what does this mean. Now for westbrook in the wizards because short-term against the wizards to get better russ brooke better player john wall. He'll work better with bradley. Beal michael lee of the washington post. He tweeted that again. Westbrook and dc. That was a preferred destination intrigued about playing with bradley. Beal excited to With scott brooks you know bradley. Beal stifled play personality. Better suited for west brockton hardens. I believe because unlike up when russell westbrook half the ball. Dc bradley will be actually tried to do some things other than just stand in the corner and watch same thing that chris. Paul had a situation with in houston with james harden wear. When harden wasn't in the plate. You know but being dominated is still heavy as houston rockets. Offense was and how the ball dahmer james harden was or when he gave up the ball with chris. Paul chris paul called plays and james harden is about thirty five feet away from the basket watching and taking a taking a break and chris paul zane man. What the fuck are you doing. How the hell we're gonna score here do something getting play grunting action. Hell i don't know you might even get the ball to score. But that was a contentious point between harden and chris paul that when the play wasn't designed for james harden on offense he just kind of checked out and russell westbrook was candlelight. The same way. I mean it was like you know. James harden didn't have the ball. You didn't feel like playing offense. So both were some of the things that drove a wedge from the working relationship. Not only with chris. Paul and james harden but also. What's russell westbrook and james. So now the whiz you don't have to have that problem when westbrook has the ball and he's running plays and doing some things bradley beal. The best player on the whiz will actually be an actual participant. Even if the play is not being run for bradley beal the place not designed to get the ball. The bradley beal with eight on the shot clock had him. I so when and try to score that way. So i think in that situation is going to be much better but basically what does move is for for washington. They're just trying to make the playoffs and convince bradley. Beal to sign a long term deal when everything is all said and done so now. You have the whizz. Let me take this lineup. Here for the wizards you've got westbrook at the point bradley beal shooting guard really hot to more second year guy from gonzaga. He's gonna be at the small forward power. For whatever forward deva's burt towns the free agent acquisition a year ago from the san antonio spills he's going to be near the forward and then thomas bryant a guy who plays hard undersized center what was really under size of the nba these days bryant six nine six ten alabama indiana get hustles rebounds. Well good energy guy. So that looks like that's going to be the Watching towards your starting five westbrook hockey maura. Batons thomas bryant. Then you've got choi brown junior robin lopez than the via coming off the bench. I don't know i. I have no idea. I haven't been there. Lead practicing for the washington wizards haven't been able to smoke. Speak to south. Scott brooks wasn't in any of their meetings so this is just a guestimation on the starting five and the rotation will be but if you take a look at that and you take a look at that team necessarily playoff. Continue her west reveal. I mean that's going to be the foundation. That's what they're going to try to build around but take eastern conference. The milwaukee bucks miami heat boston celtics philadelphia seventy sixers. They got an upgraded coach. Doc rivers brooklyn going to have kyrie katie returning toronto still gonna toronto atlanta. They made some nice moves. Abor drafted pretty. Well they're going to be expected to make the playoffs lloyd price. I believe the state should be getting a little bit warm two disappointing years in atlanta as the head coach trae young. Hopefully he's learned how to play a little bit more defense and learn how to tailor made his game to something more than just an an one tape. So we'll see and you still have indiana. They're in somewhat of a transition going from a coach like dick mcmillan. Who was more ground and pound. Grit and grime. Lloyd up a memphis grizzlies type of thing with a landau hollis at the coach. Now they got rid of dick mcmillan houston rockets. Last year rubbed the eastern conference. Which means shooter but sheila bungee three. And how and high temple will everything like that. And i'm saying to myself you're you didn't make any offseason moves to fit that style of play in you still have two big men miles turner in Bonus rv bonuses kid. The demise of the kids day starts with a d. But does this a bonus kids. They're still two guys at the power forward and center position who are far front speedsters. And we don't know about victor. Ola depot has he recovered fully from the Injury that kept him out that That hampered him so much last season we'll see we'll see malcolm brogdon is going to be your point girl. I mean malcolm brogdon and not will be would call speedy so the transition that's going to be made from changing your style of play. Schematic require some type of personnel changes. Because the team in indiana has now then ain't gonna be happening but still you're talking about a guy. Tj warren who. I suspect now is going to be having. It's gonna be given the green light to score an average of twenty three to twenty five points a game and so i think indiana team that made the playoffs the last couple of years. I think those guys are going to be in there. Also so if you take a look at the top eight teams in the eastern conference in no particular order with starting milwaukee. Miami boston brooklyn philadelphia. Toronto atlanta indiana that means the main competition for the wiz is gonna be teamed like indiana atlanta orlando. Those are going to be the team's that'll be fighting for that seven eight nights spot in the nba playoffs in the eastern conference teams by new york. Cleveland chicago charlotte detroit. This still going to remain the worst teams in the conference. So that's the move. Move basically the washington. Wizards are building around bradley. Beal to sneak into the playoffs where they can get blasted by the milwaukee bucks or the boston celtics. And that's what the book tells. Van base hero windows rolled the sports host win the war. So glad you could be with us windows world sports. The podcast that you know. Basically the organization is more interested in being mediocre. Too good rather than tearing it down and trying to rebuil- from scratch. I would love to see. We know what the consequences were. If ernie grunfeld did that. Grenfell i came into the position of general manager at the wizards. The wizards were just drowning in bad contracts and bad players and bad everything so it on grunfeld do the good thing that he did was he got rid of a lotta the bad contracts and guys. You couldn't play. The bad part is he. Got rid of those guys and brought and other guys who had bad contracts and couldn't play in was an absolutely horrific drafter if we can go back and take a look at your beverly over over klay thompson. We go ahead and take a look at trading away for randy foye and mike miller instead of drafting. It's an undrafted steph curry and we can go on and on and on about the absolute dumpster fire the absolute horrific d minus f miters performance at the gm literally. Grunfeld gave us for the washington wizards in his gm position. Man should have been fire five years before he actually got fired. But this is water under the bridge but would like to see. What tommy sheppard. Who when he was assistant. Gm a guy who the you know. Leak officials and everybody else was saying. Hey when the wizards finally wake up when tetley owners is finally decided to wake up and be serious about his basketball team. You get rid grunfeld. That he doesn't have to go ahead and look for a high price guy or some guy the organization they have a guy tommy sheppard. Who can get the job done in that situation. So i would like to see. Tommy sheppard have the situation where he needs to build from scratch now again he was talking about. No no no no no. I'm going to go ahead and we're going to go around bradley. Beal than the widgets have turned a deaf ear on all the overtures to go ahead and from other team to try to get bradley. Beal i mean you take a look at someone like the golden state warriors especially when klay thompson went down. How beautiful that have been for those for that team the go-ahead make trade for bradley beal especially with those guys holding the number two draft pick There's other teams that also made overtures in terms of trying to get bradley beal but the wizards were like no no. I don't know if that was a tommy sheppard call. I'm quite sure about the titley. Yomas call in terms of no way shape or form. Are we trading bradley. Beal because we did that means. We're telling the fan base that we're giving up. No no no no. No that means you guys are trying to start over in another love to see the trade with made for bradley beal. We acquired draft picks and some young talented such senator at kent lake. Sam presi did with the oma city thunder when he first went away and he traded russell westbrook then. He traded chris. Paul and then in between trade paul george you see all. The jubilation of draft picks that the oklahoma city thunder have and they have a young guy that can build around and say guilty. It's alexander. I would love to see the wizards. Do what the new orleans pelicans do. When they traded away anthony davis and david griffin the gm. Of the pelicans gathered boatload First round draft picks and set the team up for you know the great opportunity to build a really good team. David griffin already being the architect of a team that will the championship was in cleveland. With lebron tyree and kevin love and such so i would have loved to have seen the washington bridge. Do the same thing now. Bradley beal wasn't going to get the same hall of draft picks as the Anthony davis but you try to tell me what the milwaukee bucks paid to get. Drew holiday that the wizards couldn't have gotten something even better for a better player who's younger than What the new orleans. Pelicans got just wish will have done that. But that's all the westbrook craters telling me that. Hey we're just gonna go ahead and we're just going to try to make the playoffs. Well what the big fucking deal making a playoff this year. A seventh or eighth seen. We're not as good as milwaukee. We're not as good as miami. We're not as good as boston. We're not as good as toronto. You'll tell them about long-term. Toronto has better players toronto. The butter upper management boston. The same thing you have. Jason tatum jaylen brown. You have daddy aimed at the helm at a better organization. That's a better structure that better foundation for future success. You have the best player in the walking in the nba. Arguably outside of the bron james and youngest addenda kupu miami you have that culture with pat riley erik. Spoelstra admitted the owner of that team. You have that solid foundation. Jimmy butler who still under prime along was an emerging superstar and bam on a value on a really good player in tanner euro. So you know that organization is going to be around for a while and be a player for championship for a long time. And you're talking about a market like miami. That's a free agent destination for the top tier free agents another obstacle that the wizards are going to have to overcome. The best thing. That you can do is go ahead and build around bradley beal by trading for russell westbrook again for short term. All right. it'll get a little buzz all right but as before several times in a year where it's not gonna be anybody understand or there's going to be few people in the stands drink be capacity and you know that the teams in the nba going to be losing money. Because the fact there won't be any by stands. And you're the wizards and you'll try to stink. What better time to start rebuilding process by sterling at ground zero. The they have it in the league in a ton period in the league with nobody can see you live play so sticking out loud so starting the rebuilding process now is not going to really affect you because you wouldn't have anybody in the stands at the beginning of the season to begin with so that's my only deal man. We should go ahead and try to make that deal trade bradley beal get some picks and start building around them. In tommy sheppard i trust but we didn't. We didn't do that bradley. Beal's a good player. Bradley beal's an all star bradley beal. Hm not putting them top ten definitely not put them up in Let's talk about now for the next three to four years bradley. Beal the somewhere between top. What do you think around eighteen to twenty five best players in the game. I bet i definitely not topped is. He's not making any of the all. Nba teams. i think he's i mean so if you're not if you're saying he's not making any of these three all nba teams. You're talking about fifteen players. So the he three spots away from being a player who's good enough to be on an nba team. That's pretty damn good. But you know what. That's not a player. Who could be a franchise player on the team that will championship bradley. Beal is not that guy. He's not lebron. He's not he's not staff he's not kevin durant before the injury just not players much better than bradley beal who have not won championships at the centerpiece of their team. Jaanus the best player in the east without question our top two or three player in the game right now. He hasn't won a championship yet. Jimmy butler hasn't won a championship. James harden who want an mvp has not won a championship. damian lillard. Mr clutch has not won an nba championship. One of the best players in the game. I know still young. He's only going into third season but the team. That is constructed around luca. He ain't winning a championship and he. Here's the guy who finished third and the mvp voting. Anthony davis had to go from new orleans to wa l. a. team lebron the willow championship. He couldn't do it by himself as being the focal point. As being the franchise guy on the team. Jason tatum couldn't do it chris. Paul couldn't do it. What makes people think. Then bradley beal. What makes tommy sheppard thing. What makes ten leona think that bradley beal is going to be that guy within the next three years. You're going to be putting in the russell westbrook and still have batons. And how'd you moron troy junior brown junior those guys. That's supposed to be a team that's going to compete with milwaukee. That's going to be a team. That's going to be able to compete with miami or a boston or philadelphia with embiid and simmons and those guys in the way that they've reconstructed their team to add a little bit of shooting. The wizards are going to be able to deal with that for the next three years. It bradley beal. If you're just on the team that's gonna be you know. They're their ceiling is making the playoffs and getting bounced in the first round. It going to entice you to stay. Now you've given up willing willingly draft picks. I dunno i dunno bradley. Beal swears he loved. Dc bradley beal swears he wants to stay long. Term washington bradley. Beal says all the right things. But i wonder if someone's gonna get the bradley beal a player an agent a friend. His girlfriend wife wherever his he's in a relationship with say you really want to spend the nex prime of your years your last big contract with this team your best chance to be a guy. The be as foundation piece to winning the championship two competing for a championship with this team. He'll be interesting but again. It sounds like i'm down in doubting the westbrook westbrook trade. I'm not. I'm really not. But still my dealers. He should have broken down. You started started from zero east as you still have traded bradley beal. If you're not going to do that. I mean outside jrue holiday. I guess this is probably the best thing that you can do. The gatt jarwal of the books. So we'll see we'll see looking bills contract here. He's still at three years on his contract. Last one of those the player option thirty seven and thirty seven point two million dollars and now with covet and now with all lost money. We don't know what the salary cap is. Gonna look mike so be likely will choose not to pick up the final year so he can become so we can have the security of a longer deal. So we'll see we'll see. According to what david ultra. This was ridden of the in the atlantic. David aldridge with talking about Wizards thunder leonsis had to make a choice between wall and beal and ultimately decided to stick with bill. Yeah you think he says told altered at the end of the day. This is a ted cole man. You know you're you're an employee so the owner says do what you need to do. The bill of team around bradley beal. That is the michigan given to. Tommy sheppard mission impossible. I love bradley beal. Good player borderline consistent all star. Now a guy you can build your team build a championship around the wizards. I'm telling you man happy. I'm happy that for the first time in a long time that you guys are going to be fighting scratching clone for a playoff spot at the very most. What twenty five percent capacity. Because that's the only at the number that the percentage of vans they could watch the team play whenever we get to that point. We're not gonna go back to one hundred percent capacity. We're not gonna go back like it was before the pandemic head. So the wizards battling and fighting scratching for a number eight number seven playoff spot when everybody followed basketball and dc news that they're gonna get boat. Loaded boat romped. Vote rammed by the milwaukee bucks by the boston celtics or by the toronto raptors. Or by the miami heat that will attend leonsis. What do all right all right man. You the owner but if it was up to me hey man seen some room at the bottom. But the new york knicks. And the chicago bulls in the cleveland cavaliers. Detroit pistons. Because we're gonna start that rebuilding progress la process. We're not going to be down there with y'all forever we're going to get up there quickly especially bam the festival with the nba. Draft being so Rich and talent next season will be sweet if we could. If the wizards could somehow get a number three four five pick in the draft and maybe get themselves a daily green or get themselves a kate killing ham or something like that a lot of these scouts and everybody you're talking about those are the players that are going to be real impact player players if they develop their talent and potential so i would have loved to have been in the position to stink out loud this year and be in a position hopefully with the pingpong balls to get rid of players really start the rebuilding process. But it is what it is. The washington wizards less make the number. Eight seed will westbrook. Beal we can do. It might be being online being migo me away. Wonder wallets wendell role sports. Glad that you could be with us. Capons migos gecas senora singer. Vitas go special dedication. The only reason why. I'm playing that song today today. I was a this podcast today. I did i did. A class is up to the class. A dance class over everything. Is you know at home. So i didn't go over but the school where the high school where i was. Substituting was located is located in extremely heavily populated hispanic area mexican area. Right next to close to las vegas boulevard and main street around. That area's a couple of blocks away from skid row. And i was i've been going there for years. Enjoy the kids. They break every type of stereotype. Like ooh you want to go down there that those kids and those kids are that blah blah blah blah. Those kids are great. I've never had any problem going down to that. School and dealing with those kids never had a behavioral problem. Nobody ever tried to do anything to me or no so nonsense like that so very comfortable going down to the school bag. The school too. so but You know so. I was doing this dance class right in the fact that the school is located in a heavily populated hispanic community about ninety percent of the students who go there are hispanic or mexican. So i'm supposed to be playing all of these songs in terms that they're supposed to be able to this that the other so we got down to the last period today and the teacher had given me some bogus information in terms of what they're supposed to be dancer to i'm guessing so the The little girl on girl down on the On zoom call or google meet linka. Whatever we'll ever it's called like miester to be playing that song. I was like well You know this is what the teacher is supposed to be This is what the teacher sent me. So what do you want me to do. We'll can we you know. Can you play us a song or can we give you a song that we can dance to that. We've been practicing at the other that we really like. Sure why not. I mean you know hey go fort all to get your moving and doing whatever last song of the day anyways where this you guys to log off and do what you need to do. So why not so. They gave me that song. L. to lingo. They were really good really good dancers and that was on a little bit very ignorant when it comes to My knowledge of the music and that culture. But i enjoyed it. And i thank them very much for giving me the opportunity to have a song that i really like. I have no idea what those guys are saying. Because i don't speak spanish lingo. Did it deteriorated deteriorated so that was hours. I had time listening to that song. What role the sports and with those kids get day to day. That's why i'm in a good mood. You know dance class over at the high school dealing with those kids. Good mood today. Dummy dummy sired up one who all the sports. I'm your window wallace. So glad you could be with us speaking before we get to some college football and some nfl. Football speaking about this trade with my beloved washington wizards trading away their. I guess you could say one of their most all the all time most popular athletes. I don't know that you can put him. I no one's ever going to be what's on once on sales the band especially what he did for the then. Washington bullets organization in terms of he was drafted by team. Won the first championship with the team in poland. The previous owner of the washington bullets was a huge basketball guy. I mean this wasn't something basketball. This was when the nba was still a mom and pop. Type of operation. Terms of ownership is concerned. So this wasn't a this wasn't a hobby for a poll and everything so for him to win that championship. That really meant a whole lot to him. So what unsettle brother that championship. And then they became mccolgan and they became a he worked for that organization until the day that he died. So i don't know if anybody is ever going to reach the level of importance and fame in washington franchise you the densify. Most with the washington franchise wizards bullets will ever you want to say Nba franchise like what's on sell. But john wall came awfully close. Gotta remember now just reading about guys. You've done to work for the wizards or for the bullets or from that station. Very few have been light. Homegrown i mean teen seventy eight to one championship. Elvin hayes was drafted by the washington washington. Bullets he was over in a trade. Bobby digits already to championship with the milwaukee bucks mitch. Cup check wasn't that shoot of a player. Tom henderson wasn't that huge of a player. So you know after. The bullets won that championship and then came back the next year to the seattle supersonics in five games. I mean there was some down times. I mean bullets. The bullet fever went from beaten the iceman to they couldn't beat anybody for a long time. And you have you know the situation with the ruling jarrell and rick. Mahorn the bruise brothers. And then you had a rookie dudley and then you know you have guys trying to win championships by just making nicholas. Trades with players passed the prime. That's when they watch them. Bullets bring dan round field from atlanta hawks way past prime. They brought in muslim alone when after a championship with philadelphia able way past his prime. So the woods bullets whatever the organization. The washington basketball organization was going that route for a while. And then you bring such guys. are tom. Google yada and rex chapman the trade. It's been a hodgepodge of bad moves and bad signings and bad players and really not much to cheer for and we went to really bad gm's was until was a horrible gm. John nash was a horrible gm. Bob ferry was. We had a stretch where it will. Bob kerrey unseld company for ferry shit. I don't know whether it's you had three. Gm's in a row that had to be the worst three gm's combined in sports history when you speak about. What's on sell. Bob carey and then john nash and just the buffoonery and just the bad news in the bad draft picks over and over and over again. I remember the year. I believe it was eighty four where we drafted kitty. Green in the first round over moses baloney and then we draft known that we drafted no no multi bogues in the first round and then we will ahead and drafted manute bol so we had the distinction of drafting the shortest player. Maybe a history and then the tallest player and then a history. All in the same drafts and think one year redrafted kennedy green. Six seven four eight fours over. I don't know some dining. Karl malone who turned out to be pretty good basketball player. I mean the The gm position for the washington wizards you can longevity. And the one great thing about the gm position of washington you can stay out loud at the gm. You can be totally incompetent. You can be a total failure and term the building a championship in terms of building a team. That's competitive with the washington basketball organization whether it was poland who brought in michael jordan to be the president of basketball operations and he decided to draft kwami brown with the number one pick and decided to bring in richard hamble richard hamilton already. There he read him off and they went to detroit and won a championship and brought rasheed wallace and he didn't do anything he ultimately wanted. Championship at the detroit pistons. So i mean if you're a gym with the washington basketball team professional basketball team. You can stink out loud and be horrible at your job for for a long time before ownership. Finally wised up and get in gets really your air. So that was the same thing i mean. A lot of for what's on sale was just because of what he did. You know there was a loyalty factor with a policeman. Who has the reason why he was allowed to be so terrible. As a coach. And be terrible as gm bob. Ferry danny ferries kid played here in the dc area. He wanted to mathis so there was a little something with that john. Nash came over from portland. I don't know why they kept him so long but he was ridiculously bad. So it was just been bad. Gm at the badge gm after badge em. So you know when it had fell who. I guess you could say. Really top them. All in terms of the ineptitude of the position that was required to build a championship brought in He drafted john wall not hard. What the number one draft pick year. The wizards won the lottery. And everybody knew what a brain in their head. That john wall was going to be there guys. The wizards drafted jump all them. Even career a real fun career you've been. He'd been the best player for that team. Probably in a couple of decades. So and john wall did a lot for chocolate city. John wall was himself in terms of you know not Hiding hit blackness. Not hiding who. We worked on allen iverson to the game where it might be know. My walk struck my speech. My ways might offend some folks at the lavish age from bouzis. But i'm just gonna be who i am. And when he turned out to be with a really good guy you can look pass. The ignorance are what you thought. Someone of the stature should look like so he did a lot for the community. You didn't lot for children. He was a really a guy who really cared about the washington dc metropolitan area now. He made his offseason home in florida. But still his charitable efforts in dc great. He really embraced the city. This is my town of a basketball player. This is my town so outside of i guess you could say that anybody. On the washington football team i get many with the exception of robert griffin the third the one year that he. Dc as quarterback for the snyder skins. John wall even more than alex ovechkin. What the most popular player athlete in washington. Dc afar professional. Sports are concerned. So this was an easy day. There's really wasn't an easy day. In the all accounts kevin durant and others have been talking than had been raving about how great john wall is looked in working out in the summer. And there's been some clips on twitter of him working on the miami and playing pick ball and any other me. He looks good. Looks good in them videos. But you know we don't guy hadn't played basketball and then be a basketball game in two years. He's coming off an achilles tear. He's coming off some pretty serious injury so this is going to be a guy even when you get the houston. The john wall who we know when love is not going to be that guy. He's not going to be playing seventy two games as the seventy two game season. I would doubt if john wall would get to sixty. He's not gonna be playing back the bags he's not going to be averaging thirty five minutes a game. He's not gonna be evident even closer to thirty minutes a game. So we'll see. We'll see. But i wanna thank. John wall being washington wizards fan for what he did in terms of being the man for the a wizards them back they did make it to the second round they did beat the toronto raptors a couple of years and make the second round. They had a very good playoff with the atlanta hawks when atlanta was number one dusty series. Where paul pierce bahauddin shot at the buzzer and chris. Broussard asked him after the game was over in the hype in fauria of just hitting the shot when crispell sarlos. Did you call bank in paul. Pearson i call game i call gain bitch bitch but you know until you know we got that and walled it. A lot to bring washington back In terms of basketball. Or so we. We thank you very much for that. But he's all his way to houston. We've got russell westbrook. We'll see what happens. We'll see what happens now. What does this mean for houston. Moving forward is james harden only be traded is james harden next to be traded. Is going to be pj tucker and then harden and what about. What about all the kid from indiana. Whose name escapes me right. Now eric gordon you thank you. What about eric gordon. What about these players shootin me building tearing down well what a high ranking source told the pm houston stance on hardens. Not change saying the team hoped to be competitive with him on the roster. The season and does not envision a scenario in which harden would be traded before the opener key phrase there is traded before the opener. And what the rockets would require for them to trade harden. It would mean a package that would clearly potential franchise corner still and massive picks picks package something similar to what anthony davis scott from from when the new orleans. Pelicans traded him to the la lakers and everything that they got similar to what the los angeles clippers had to give up when they themselves. Paul george and as i mentioned before i don't see anybody in the league having a package What the rockets are looking for. A young potential franchise cornerstone. I mean were going to be looking at jason tatum. Boston luka doncic in dallas trae young possibly in atlanta. I mean none of those guys are going to be available. I mean hell jason. Tatum just signed the contract. Max contract ego nowhere so those inattentive if that's the case for houston i'm sorry for james harden spencer dinwiddie doesn't cut it and cares liberte doesn't cut it so your desire to play for the new The brooklyn nets james. If that's what houston is going to be dead set on looks like i don't care how much you pout and moan and groan and not show up for practice and not do interviews and everything like that. Use the beatles. Eight no place. I mean. he's just look as i mentioned before the package you require for milwaukee to get drew holiday. It gave a three first round picks to pick swaps into rotation players. That's true holiday. Who can still be a free agent in the season. So there is no like super-duper one hundred percent guarantee that he will be staying long term with the milwaukee bucks. That's how much do you had to give up the get there. So if that's going to be the case for holiday what do you think hugh toronto asking for one of the best players in the best score. And he'll be right now as i mentioned before another podcast as james harden being the men on your team so far that has got to any championships. Scan them a lot of scoring titles but hell they pairing him. Dwight howard of at the time big term center one of the top players in the nba during that time after the buffalo was kobe and the lakers. That did last. They tried pairing in with chris. Paul that last after two years or three years they try perry russell. Westbrook didn't work after one year. Paul and howard m Westbrook all one out. So i mean what. What's the situation gonna be like with what the situation to be with. James harden and john wall cajon. John wall has a similar game. Chris paul in russell westbrook which means that when he was last last seen playing the best john wall is john wall with the ball in his hands. All the time setting up the office this sheeting the offense that's not conducive to what james harden does now. They have a whole new coaching staff. They have a whole new philosophy in the way the play offense no more shooting forty three game and thirty two pointers a game. No more james harden double dribble dribble dribble dribble dribble dribble dribble dribble dribble dribble shot clock running down double double dribble dribble. Step back three of twenty seven foot. Three pointer think. Stephen silas is going to be running that type of offense for the houston rockets. Number one is james harden going to be receptive to change number two even though james harden said. Yeah man you know. i'm down with I'm down with john wall. My preference is to play with john wall rather than russell westbrook. That's what won't announced. He said on his appearance on a espn's give up my greenberg show so he said yeah. That's that's fine. That's what i'll do all right. Okay exactly don't know what that means and john wall it's going to be a little bit. Tricky in terms of he's gonna be coming back and playing with a unique type of player led james harden again. We have no idea what type of offense houston is going to run. And the john wall. That was the best point guards in the nba. The john wall who was a starter for a couple of years in the all star game from eastern conference that john wall was the walk through the door folks. The player that john wall is really beginning with the player. That houston is giving john wall. We have no fucking idea. But i can tell you one thing. They read john wall while he was in physical prime. Those days are gone even before he got injured in started missing games. The skeleton import reports were of that His speed is starting to slow down again. He had to play basketball here the plate an nba basketball game. Since december twenty sixth of eighteen towards kelly's a year and a half ago now most players come back from an injury like that and twelve months. Kobe bryant did something that came back with. You know mama mentality so you know they also that mama mentality. Kobe was reaching this upper thirty. S mid thirty. Sell but john wallace pather. So who knows who knows ma'am and as mentioned before we was having a difficult time but bone spurs in his in missing significant amount attorney before the achilles injury. He missed a significant amount of time with that before he then towards achilles. So i don't know know russell. John wall biggest advantage prior was his physical gifts his speed with the ball in his hand. No one was going to be able to get Was going to be able to keep up with john. Wall and acceleration is starting to kind of learned the craft of when to Put it in fifth gear and wanted just third gear a fastball. Like a pitcher. I mean you don't have to ninety nine all the time. I mean you can throw a change up. You can throw a curve you fat ninety two when then when the when the count is a three balls and two strikes. Then you throw a heater and pull it down the middle or paid the quarters. John wall starting to do that in terms of learning shifts speeds and moves of the game but I don't know man i know. His fastball fastball. Now just might be ninety two. So i mean he still has three years one hundred thirty two million dollars left on his contract so for houston they had to get rid of westbrook. And when you're dealing with the gyns making that amount of money you ain't gonna be able to get him for anybody who's cheap. Let me the fact that both both teams we had two players who probably only two player that they could've traded for. Maybe chris paul with another guy. You wanna do just a swap for swap. But yet no. It was a situation. I'll take your contract and you can have my bad contract and to take my bad contract in the first round pick zippy zipper tables. Yeah this works but I think for houston again. Give him the position that they were in the fact that they gave up so much to get chris. Paul and the draft picks that they gave up to build that team that underachieved in terms of what their goals were. I think they did. I think it came out all right. I mean you had john wall. As i mentioned before we don't know what kind of player we're gonna be getting. We're not definitely not getting the the player that We once saw and his prime but shoot in did recoup one of the first round picks that They had to give up in trading robert covington. They get another picnic so they're starting to regain some of the picks that they've lost of at least the raphael stone the gm for the raptors starting to we build that way but for the team. I again the move forward. I don't know how hard in an giang wallers is gonna work in. I don't know what the mindset is of james harden going into camp. i haven't talked to james harden. i wasn't hanging out in l. a. Talking to james harden about the whole deal. I don't know i'm just like you. Man in terms of the opportunity to talk to j h the find out what his true thoughts and feelings are so. It'll be interesting to see this drama. Play out so if james comes in with a negative attitude. I mean who doesn't go. What jimmy butler deb. He tried to get him out of minnesota. I don't think that James has that personality. But you know this is again. What the latest all star. Who couldn't find long-term success playing with james harden and these guys were boys. These guys grew up in. La these guys were talking about. I've know russel's damon. Russell knows my game. We hang out in the summer. We work out in the summer and were boys and we played. Aau ball played year for oklahoma city and reunited and it feels so good and everything's great demand. Three hundred sixty five days later russell. Westbrook is like get the fuck outta here and james. Yeah giving the fuck outta here also accept. Don't send me to the same place. Were just in the russell westbrook. Because i don't wanna play for him. The russell westbrook said yeah the feelings mutual. So and the no ma'am marriage. We love each other but we just can't stand the beat around each other. Maybe it's a situation like that Give john wall is Dominant point guard. Westbrook and paul had there assist averages. Go down when they're playing with james harden why because harding taste the ball dribble dribbles dribbles and these rebels dribbles he dribbles and he dribbles and the dribble dribble dribbles and the fans yawn and the analysis groaned and the opponents. Come on man. What the fuck in james harden still out there with a shot clock going down from sixteen twelve to eight the floor and he's a dribble dribble dribble dribble dribble dribble over dribble dribble dribble dribble shot like or he did this a lot of times. I'm surprised at austin rivers era. Gordon never just went over there and said hey motherfucker nicomedes over the ball with two seconds on the shot clock. Didn't it's twenty seven feet away from the basket basketball the guy. I'm still at that ball. Go out of bounds. That'll be a turnover on you. You know i haven't said in my contract. Also and maybe i haven't send of saying that i have a certain percentage any shooting from the field for me to collect an extra fifty gram or one hundred grand the my contract and after dribbling the basketball for a seventeen seconds with a shot clock running down because you now have nowhere to go the pull up the shot. You're going to throw it to me with two seconds on the shot clock or i can't even create a shot where i can't even do anything i have to go ahead cadged hebron at the rim. Because you don't want your shot percentage you don't want your shooting percentage to go down. F you see k you so yeah. We'll look a little bit look chooses. Rejected lineup here. Wow john wall. James harden christian would with a good acquisition. I'll from detroit. Pj tucker eric gordon. How scheduled to be on the team when everything is said and done that's not a championship team is talking about. I want to build a championship. I want to build a championship with that really. That's the beat the lakers. That's gonna beat the clippers. That's going to beat the nuggets. That's going to beat the jazz. That's gonna be possibly an upcoming. I dunno the pelicans have way to go. But just taking a look at the end of the teams in the western conference. Houston going anywhere with that squirrel that squad. And didn't you hear james harden talked about. I wanted to win. Didn't you see. James harden turned down a hundred and three million dollar extension. This is the team that you're going to be building around with james harden that's going to have james harden all shit. I mean i was the play with kevin durant and kyrie irving because i thought i had a chance to win a championship in electric conference like eastern conference. But all hell you're to surround me with kristin t. tj tucker and john wall a limited. John wobble than hell. Let's start planning parade in june in houston moment but for what the the parade in houston. Don't the only parade is going to be in houston in june for the rockets parading. These guys outta town they after they either missed. The playoffs bounced by the denver. Nuggets or of the La clippers in the first round. And again i. How much are we asking john. Wall the play here. He's gotta be unrestricted minutes. He's not going to be playing back the backs. This is going to be a whole lot of game management's when it comes to john wall so even that situation james harden he's not going to have the james james wall we all know remember is walking to be a guy that just be you know on the second team we get that offense initiated that way so he can you know fit his skills his strengths and what. He knows because he won't be able to do that if he's going to be on the floor. The majority of time of james harden the john wall that we saw washington lake will be eligible to be happening in houston with james harden. It was similar to what chris bosh had to go through with. Lebron james is similar to what kevin love had to go through. Lebron james is similar. To what ray allen had to go through with paul pierce whenever you get these superstars and when they're coming over from love team you're not bringing your game. Wally brings his game over in having houston the way he plays. No no no. No john wall is going to have to adjust to the way james harden place and you can ask russell westbrook in chris. Paul that is very difficult to do. And at the end of the day it doesn't turn fruitful because the rockets don't wanna championship. mauri is gone. Mike d'antoni has gone so we'll we'll see we'll see what this looks like but i again because of the fact that what was going to be around for three years you won't go to trade russell westbrook for electric contract less money less years so that that was just the bottom line so you got a guy who didn't want to be there in the first place him out of town state yourself a million dollars you get the guy who's making one hundred and thirty two million. No john walls making one thirty three. I dunno whatever man. What's what's one hundred million dollars between friends right so you have a situation like that. John wall all right. We'll see what he can do as far as working with james harden but the key thing is the main thing is is recouping. Those draft picks that the rockets lost when they tried to build a championship around james harden. Now are the houston rockets. Going to make the same mistake that the washington wizards did are the youth. Iraq is going to continue to make the same mistake even though they were talking about now now not working with james harden we can win with james harden. Let me tell you something man the team. Y'all have right now for the houston rockets. Young coming close to winning the championship this year next year or the year before you better do right for the organization and really do what's right for james harden make everybody happy yourself end. James harden freight jeans. Get some draft picks. Get some capital start over the rally. The thirty five years old the two to three year plan to get the rockets in a position to where they can start making moves. Memphis is getting better. Utah signed donovan. Mitchell thinking about maybe getting them getting a contract for go bears. So utah's gonna remain strong yokich in japan murray for denver there twenty three and twenty five years old. The clippers have and paul. George even playoff p is better on a you. Know the clippers better than houston has man. Y'all better break this down now. Houston and when the time comes for the twenty twenty three twenty four season. That's when you'll start being players for teams of upward mobility to eventually start willing championships. When does world is sports on. Your host wonder wallace so glad that you could be with us. A lot of things get down on and discuss today here on a beautiful friday afternoon out here in las vegas nevada as i'm recording this in my town home which needs to have the kitchen needs kitchen. Kitchen needs to be cleaned Yeah got to get to that but yeah up here watching a little bit. Got my Tv set to the food network watching some diners drive ins and dives remain guy fieri. So i'm set. I'm ready to go on rip rowing ready to go. The one place that i went to when he did a show out here in vegas or when he Was highlighting willing. The pizza place out here in vegas. It was alright to beat them was all right but i would love to have the opportunity. I mean you talk about Food paradise on the travel channel and then the lafayette doing going across the country eating at all these places men man. Oh man talking about i. Love doing podcast. I love talking about sports. I love yelling and screaming and ranting and raving about politics and some other things man. But you're talking about a dream. Come true in terms of a great job and gaffey area making monday the fact that the goal that these countries and go around these places and try these foods some of that shit that they eat i would need like ninety eight percent of the stuff that these guys are cooking like yemen. Gimme some of that. Gimme some of that night to sit there and talk about his crunchy it delicious. The food blends wealth together. You get the bunch. The crunch you get the bite. You get the sweetness you get the tartness. Get the sweetness. Our and all that kind of stuff. I can bullshit my way through and good. Some good eaton's like that so my question. Is you know on chopped and beat bobby flay and all these other places where these guys bring up the food and they try them and they eat it and then give their critique of it. What happens to the rest of the food because they'd be so in some really likes them. Heian stuff some semi in food and all this kind of stuff and all of these ingredients and everything like these folks. Just take a nibble in the bite in a crunch in a in a chow chu and they start talking about. This is good. This is bad but like this. I didn't like that and this that and the other is like okay judge. Go ahead and switch your plate so like well what y'all gonna do with the food that y'all did y'all gonna throw it away. We got people in this world. We got people in this country. Hungary y'all gonna what that the film crew. Y'all gonna give back to somebody else. I mean i would have like a bunch of english folks. Maybe sitting outside the studios. It'd be like you know when you're done with this. I'll go ahead put this in a styrofoam cup or whatever. Give it to the homeless. Say bone apetite or something. I don't know. I mean brinson children who are hungry or something like that and let them eat the stuff that You guys don't eat. But you know tainting the folks on bobby flay you have the judges they take a couple of bites whatever and is like they give the critique and it's like okay that's good enough it's like well what the fuck y'all gonna do with the rest of the food. i mean. these folks are making four dishes and four plates and all this kind of stuff. So i don't know exactly what they do but i hope they give the somebody. I damn sure. Hope they ain't it away because number one. That shit is looking to damn good. Be throwing away. You're talking about being made by james beard award winners and iron chefs and all of these superstars of of the cooking industry is stop. You gonna throw that shit away or are you fucking nuts. Let me know where you are on that away. And i'll be right burger garbage disposal. I'll be right near the trash can and say. Now give shit to me. I'll eat it. I couldn't be a judge in any of them shows man. I couldn't be a judge at chop. I couldn't the guy's grocery games in hollywood bacon the other holidays bacon and all that kind of stuff. I couldn't be a judge because they'd be asking what i think about the dish nuts. I was still be eating. Guest tastes good to me. that's good. I'm tag visiting nurse. Thanks l. take. I really can't give a true description. I really can't tell you how good it. How ballot yet. I really needed another sample jeffrey security. And you're gonna finish yours. I guess. Now i'll take that i'll be he nurtured man. 'specially when you talking about forty five minutes between each meal the for them to cook the food and all that kind of stuff shit. You don't wanna turn down anything bobby flay makes. I'll be talking about beat bobby flay talking about. Yeah you to. Who don't want to finish your meal. I'll take that very much. All in the winter bobby flay eat ross chump. So there you go man. That's my thoughts on the food channel. Hopefully doing something with that food. That hasn't been eaten by the judges at there are sitting there going As alice boras. Shelly is sitting there going. Good deal no deal. Manila children who was just so well a sexy attractive woman. She is sitting there. Giving her thoughts. Amana fried tag and and Those guys just fantastic love myself. The flu channel mark murphy and those guys love myself. The food channel. When does all the sports. I'm your host window. Wallace so glad you could be with us getting back to some sports into football college football playoff rankings. Wonder this week number. Two of the. Nothing's changed more things. Change the more things. Say the same right you top seventeen. Remain the same alabama number one notre dame number two clemson number three ohio state and the before. Those are the top fourteen for the top four spots alabama beat auburn in the iron bowl last weekend. Forty third fully thirteen was your them folks in auburn alabama. Sitting there talking about how the hell hell no hell house still have a job. How the hell did we gave him a contract extension day. Forty two thirteen met. Jones threw for five touchdown. Passes didn't even need head coach. Nick sabin on the sidelines to do it. You tested positive for covid. Nineteen after showing some mild symptoms. He's still not back with the team wasn't back with the team. But everything's copacetic. He'll be on the Sidelines when alabama gets revenge in their game begins lsu member when lsu. I remember i remember. I remember last season when lsu beat alabama in. I said that You know with it. Orange iran ask coach as a recruiter in the location. That he's at. This could be the first time this could be the real program at least in the sec. Clemson miami you can debate whether which program is more elite as right now. What's program has been stronger. The last four or five years. Clemson and alabama clearly has been those two really nobody else. But i said after all after lsu beat alabama said that you know what man it or to run this. This guy might be the thorn in nick sabin side. This guy might be ultimately the rafeal raffin doll to nick. Sabin roger federer. You know what. I'm saying in terms of veterans. Seemed like he could beat everybody for a while except for nadal. The jovic came on the scene and he got better. Roger got older and now is basically a situation where you have no back and rafa in grand slams and i thought you know kirby smart might have been that guy to give nick savings and troubles. Wrong in the sec. And there was like it or drum. Might be that guy just the way. he's talking order. I've had a cajun swag tomb. Be like you know algebra nick. Sabin fuck nick saving. The i wanna beat his ass. A billion at home. I'm going to him at alabama and after the game's over on be talking shit. And you know you talk about football players high school football players in love that shit man especially you can go ahead and produce and the recruiting ground that louisiana's situated on in lsu the type of school that it is in the football program that it is an order to run as the head coach in in the recruiter. That he is. i mean. This is a situation where you know you know. Lsu could be that team that lately. I'm not gonna say says. Nick sabin the retirement but brings alabama back to the pack in terms of winning championships every single year. Instead of the allburn ascent of the alabama crimson tide. Being in the playoffs every year now could be a situation. Where for the next five or six years in a row could be. Lsu wrong boy. Was i wrong. That would've i. Didn't know joe burrow was that good. I didn't know joe brady. The offense coordinator passing coordinator wherever you wanted to call him for the lsu tigers last year. I didn't know he was important. And i didn't know the difference. I didn't know the discrepancy between head coach in recruiter to the seems to me like head coach or on average recruiter edwards run fantastic thought that any mediocrity that in order on had as a coach vic peekapoo a good enough staff together and go out and give themselves some really great recruits. Continue to be a school. That's going to be renting the top two or three every recruiting writing that. It really didn't matter how bad of coach or how mediocre coach in order on was just on talent alone. If you didn't get away of the coordinators the he can go ahead and be successful and well do the fact that they can pay Topnotch dollars to get themselves exit. Offensive and defensive specialty. Coordinators and defensive. Line coach is in wide receiver coaches and quarterback coaches and such just as a guy who could be the ceo. I mean how bad could end or drum b. that position for lsu the fall off they did. They're falling off falling off their fallen. All they are falling off. So it's like. Oh how much longer i mean You know the guys who are really listened to respect pat forties of the world and some others. I mean they bring up the name. Gene chizik of auburn. I mean yeah you look good. You're genius when you have cam newton that one year when you won a national championship and then a couple of years later. He's gone in. Auburn is Auburn is in the gutter and terms that there are opportunities and their position to win championships and being elite football program. The challenge alabama and with gus malzahn. I mean it's been a rocky bumpy relationship between the fan base. And the coach in the football program bonex sick and tired of hearing about bo knicks. Bonuses gonna be like other the stem etlinger for texas. I feel like he's been around playing football for that program for like eight years. The tired of bonus. I don't care about the fact that he grew up wanting to be an auburn tiger at all the bullshit. I don't care you ain't getting. It does quarterback this was supposed to be the guy the to be able to have auburn compete with the alabama's of the world hasn't happened so you know that's that's another deal that The the another discussion. I'll get into a little bit later on. Podcast but alabama remains number one. They're gonna blow lsu all that shit that at around talking about you. Don't think nick saving them boys. You think those guys didn't remember that you'll think they remember that shit man. They're about to their bill to get. Bum rushed at lsu on saturday so maybe they should have cancelled that game. Maybe when the game was cancelled the first time maybe it should have been like now. We're cool we're good. We're fine no about. We need to play alabama this year. We're good don't worry about it. We got enough donor to to You know take care of the losses. Ohio state still in the top. Four teams only played four games. Now that the possibly michigan state ryan day is not going to be at the game because he's tested positive for covert but the big ten is doing everything humanly possible that they can do. They have ohio. State the sixty seven so they can qualify for the Football playoffs cincinnati. Again cincinnati remains unbeaten and mike number seven the same place where they were last week. You know know know that there ain't no way humanly possible. Cincinnati is gonna be in the top four spots. No way. I don't give a damn what they do. They can go out and they can beat some teams one. Hundred did nothing for the rest of the season. It ain't gonna matter. Clemson notre dame one of the teams are going to be in alabama. They're probably going to be in a complete complete utter chaos happens. I still don't think that. Cincinnati can find an avenue can find a way can have directions to get themselves to be one of the top four teams to compete for the college football playoffs. It's called you're not in a power. Five conference go fuck yourself. You ain't invited we interested so you know cinderella. You ain't going to the ball bitch. So is like one of those deals so. When does the sports. I'm your host win.

Thirteen past weekend eighteen game for postponed or cancelled brings the total number of games cancelled or postponed the season to one hundred gotta make that money though right president you gotta make that money right. Aideed make the money right. We gotta make that money fuck. I don't give a damn how we get there. We those counters as the big twelve. The big ten. Sec sec pac twelve day of what the hell at the pac twelve one is doing the pac twelve. I live close to pac twelve country. Nike forgetting that conference is still playing football games or at least trying to play football games. Jeez so look. Some games postponed games with some significance again. The ohio state illinois game was canceled this past saturday after positive tests but the ohio state program again. We're speaking about the situation. Where ohio state needs to. There's no more cancellations. there's no more postponements. I don't know exactly what we can you. I'm sorry i'm nfl. Gene smith athletic director. I'm sitting up there speaking of somebody to say okay. Even if we do have positive tests what exactly can we do to either. A hide the fact that we have positive tests and to put them on the field and cross our fingers or doing something man because we ain't missing out on that check. We ain't missing out on an opportunity to play for a championship. All the huddle huckabee blue and all this other bullshit us in nebraska and all these folks from the big ten conference's wait around was talking about. We'll go play sometime else somewhere else. And all this other bullshit and now we're at the position now where we might not have an opportunity to play when if we're ohio state where one of the top four teams in the country this year. And we're gonna have. We're gonna miss out on the opportunity because some fucking copen positive tests. What exactly can we do to get around this. What can we do. Can we fudge. Can we cheat. Can we do something. Just in case state i have a plan. B hey man. I'm sorry you're putting children's putting minors health risk and young people and all that bullshit. Hey fuck all that bullshit would be intentions college football. The attentions of the conferences with to go ahead and see what we can do. The intentions of ryan day and the ohio state football players to play this season under any means necessary and when commissioner of the big ten decided that they were going to shut down the season the fans the parents the players the coaches there were him in hauling and yelling and whining and crying and do a lot of this kind of stuff. Fine motherfucker you've got yourself goddamn season. We're gonna finish his mother fucker hook or crook hook or crook crook crook crook emphasis on the word crook so ohio state. You wanted the you wanted to play the season fine. You're going to fucking play this season. You're one of the best four teams in the lean league. Fine we're gonna fuck and find a way to get you to the college football playoffs. And then we can ten fifteen twenty thirty years from now when none of this shit is significant. Is this today then. We start going into our conspiracy theories and then we start going into the bloody socks and then we can start going to the shooter on the grassy knoll and then we can start doing all that. Other bullshit and conspiracies and y'all can have documentaries and who delights and all this other nonsense as a right now. I don't give a damn. How many players had copay if they're walking in. They're breathing if they can play their fucking plan so hook by crook and that's the attitude. That's that's the attitude of the college football right. Fbi always been the attitude of college football conference who actually gives. The dale about their players are the ivy league. Not only did the i. League cancel the football season. They also cancelled the basketball season. Why i don't know because those schools actually give a damn about their quote unquote student athletes. The big ten dozen the. Acc doesn't the sec doesn't or they don't care enough. They care more on how much money they're going to be missing. More than the camped up the health and safety of their players. So fucking go all the fucking way with his bullshit though. Florida state has their second consecutive game postponed on saturday. There was a schedule virginia. Virginia was like now. We're good so now. The acc is now announced that you know notre dame and played wake forest and clinton only play one more game so instead of playing nine games attending or something like that just to make sure that one or two teams from the acc play in the college. Football semi-final have a chance to win a championship. Were just doing to strengthen the yards so wait for us. Sorry you went playing the schedule. Game against notre dame. What is gonna popo. Postpone that game. So basically notre dame has already secured a spot in the college football playoffs. Oh and by the way notre dame even part of the acc conference. They just needed somewhere to go though. The acc has notre dame on loan for year and they're bending over backwards and putting them with though vassal. Lean toward wooster vastly. Just for those guys all about the money all about the money and seizing with clemson davos. We need up there talking about the i. I couldn't understand. Dad got a little angry when the school clemson travel all the way down. Travel all the way down from clemson. South carolina to tally hassle. Tallahassee florida exactly not going from new york hannah lulu but you bring the team you brought the band but cheerleaders to money was involved in that trip so you get down there in florida states like Yeah sorry we cut some covert issue. So we're not gonna play or oh. I heard that you guys have some common issue. So we're a postponing. The game and deborah was like fuck that bullshit. You want to postpone this game. Okay fuck you know we schedule when shit unless you you bring back the money or give back the money we spent. Come on down here. you're gonna tell us that shit the date of when we get down there fuck you only one essence one respect i see dabbled sweeney is coming from on the other hand deborah. You're a football coach. Your doctor in other commissioner. You're not a president. You're fucking football coach. We don't do as you say you do. As i say now your team is going to go back down there. And you're going to play florida state. Now you can fucking go down there with the team or you won't lifted. Don't go down there with the team and you continue to have a stake and if you continue to speak and you continue to bury a problem i will fuck and bear your fucking ass all we we play ball here dabble because this conference bending over backwards to make sure that you have the best chance to get yourselves into the college football playoff. Oh yeah. That's big fat contract. You said i'm quite sure it has the bonus for you making the college football playoffs and also winning the college football playoff. So do me a fucking favor. Will you help me help you. Shut the fuck up. It's stop burying our other Ah brethren in the acc florida's data will ever just shut the fuck up and let us do what we need to do. All we okay with that the matter we okay with that. Dipa fuck ella. My office will get the fox kazuko or hang up the phone. Whatever but S been devils up there now look. They're dictating when we're gonna play and who we're going to play in all of this kind of bullshit know about that one. That's pretty interesting but again you know the act declared that the football it's gonna be we're gonna be changed some games and we're going to do everything that we can have. Clemson play notre dame in the acc championship game. Their think is being crossed at clemson. Now trevor lawrence and not dj cloud ola last name. I forget i apologize but He's gonna be at the quarterback position in that will allow clemson in some other other players on clinton's defense they're going to be eligible and they'll be able to play this game so that will be the difference so the aclu tuesday declared a series of college schedule. Changes that guarantees. Notre dame will play in the conference title game on december nineteenth. Now what the league said in the statement that said here that the league's athletic directors voted to preserve the integrity of the conference championship game. Embiid the covid nineteen pandemic by evaluating the league's top three teams based on a nine km conference schedule as opposed to a ten game schedule. So those teams are notre dame clemson and miami go based on the standings results to notre dame holds all tiebreakers and therefore security birth in the acc football championship game. Wow how 'bout that man the amend schedule content concludes the regular season saturday which means that notre dame syracuse and the clemson virginia tech. Those games will be played. The irish and the tigers were previously scheduled to play wake forest and florida state on december twelfth respectively. But then again devil through that little fit in that hill hissy fit. I was talking about i. I like the way the data when he was calling out florida state. He didn't go out player. Didn't call the coach. You call out. The administration by the coaches wanted to play. The players wanted to play to win was saying was just seven points. I'm not yelling at the coach. And i'm not yelling at teams. I'm not calling you guys. cowards. I'm calling your administration. Cowards so nice to see davo chemist that little bit in there. also so miami's Is going to travel the play duke on saturday and then they'll host north carolina on december twelfth. So again clemson. Beats north virginia tech. And right now. They're twenty two points favorites. They'll secure the second spot in the title game due to the head tiebreaker. They have over over miami which they want on october tenth forty to the seventeen to what happens to clemson loses to virginia tech the question. That means miami. Then must beat both a beat both duke and north carolina and the following week to secure a berth in the title game and if miami fails to do that Before that then. It will host virginia georgia tech on december nineteenth. If notre dame clemson or miami. Kim playing on saturday due the corona virus coming up those games could be rescheduled for december twelve. Th so i don't know man. I don't know i don't know i don't know it's just alabama is it just been a weird year. I don't know whether i'm dislike. Just hurry up and get this college football season over with or i don't know what my emotions are. Because it's like you start the season again in everything just thrown just outta wag in look no fault of college football and everything else fucking pandemic going on so labor day and everything. The tradition which i've been so accustomed to for decades is like thrown out of whack. So you don't have those labor day games you don't have those Top five teams in top ten teams playing each other. You don't have alabama going up. Because usc you don't have that stuff going on september there was a situation. Where should the big ten play should be ten. Not play and you had that rigmarole than you had the pac twelve talking about. We're going to cancel. Oh no we're not going to cancel the season i know. And now you have the mac and you have the mountain west and you have all these all these small mid major conferences. so the possibilities of You know a huge upset. That's happening in september. You know those situations are gone. That's one of the things that big college football so interesting. Is those early season contests and september. Would you have Mid major you know putting a weapon or beating a top twenty team or team in a power five conferences. Such like those such like them. I mean that wasn't as prevalent in. That wasn't as impactful as it was the season. And when everything is all said and done i mean maybe with the exception of notre dame i mean clemson alabama ohio state. I mean basically. That's what the season with four mainly get those three in. Everybody knew that those were the three best teams in college football. Everybody knew the way the schedule was going to be. Put together that those guys were going to. The clinton was gonna do what they needed to do. Even with the hiccup at notre dame the skype or still going to be in a position to Make it to the college football playoff. Everybody knew that maybe with. I don't know i mean shit who knows texas a and m. Maybe the shock the world but donald menzel was a walking through that door so it was like alabama for the most part of schedule that they had. They knew they weren't going to lose football games. it was just a matter of who was going to be. That next team wasn't gonna be florida. Wasn't going gonna be notre dame was going to be georgia which one of these was at. The time at the time was going to be michigan. Or what are you gonna be penn state when the big ten decided that they were going to Start the season so all of these things. It just seem. I don't know man. It just seem like to bullshit ish and it just brings to light brings more evident than anybody with a brain in their head and anybody who came out you know put you know what one plus one equals two means new that look. This is all about bunny this all selling myself. How much money does austin. Texas lutheran university of texas doesn't play. How much does columbus ohio lose financially when ohio state the play football games. How much money do college towns like. Auburn alabama in college station texas in norman oklahoma in stillwater and oxford mississippi and all of these places. How much money that the on much. Those omaha nebraska are in lincoln nebraska lincoln nebraska where the basket plays. How much does it tell. Economy take a hit when college. Football is not the session. Be damned the fact that they're wearing a pandemic bi dam the fact that when you're going to be playing college football that the numbers we're going to rise just because of the change climate and flu season and everything like that and we have a fucking idiot in the white house. Who really didn't give a fuck about how many people got sick or died. He gave a damn about his fucking punk. 'self so we knew this shit was coming and i guess you could say that. The only thing that we could go shoe was about that no one died. Thank goodness that no one got deathly ill. The no one was nothing on the doorstep of the grim reaper. the season that no college football player faced adversity. So in that case you can say that this college football season if they can continue to do what they're doing half the playoffs get themselves a championship that it was a success and you can go ahead and you can those conferences who make it to the playoffs to go ahead and you can cash those checks all about all about the money all about how much all about that. Five hundred forty nine million dollars that's going to be doled. That's how much according to the ncaa documenta team by usa. Today sports back in two thousand eighteen twenty seventeen the rose bowl sugar bowl orange bowl. Fiesta bowl peachable cotton bowl but the national championship game. They pay out a combined. Five hundred forty nine million dollars to conferences in schools. That was the school year of two thousand eighteen. Nineteen and you also have to remember the teams who play those games conferences. They divvy up about four hundred and forty four hundred and forty eight million dollars because ninety nine million dollars all that five hundred and forty nine hundred forty nine million dollars. Ninety nine million dollars of that goes to the lower tier schools so when schools are playing front of habit empty stadiums normally in the toilet bowl. And who cares bowl and the speidel title sponsorship bowl. And no one's gonna watch bowl and we're always doing this because gamblers wanted to bet on something bowl and the bahamas bowl and the hawaii bowl and this report bowl and all this other bullshit bowls. The that's where that money come from to help those bowl games pinstripe bowl and the california bowl and the sponsors sponsorship bowl that money the four hundred forty five hundred and forty nine billion dollars. Ninety nine million dollars of that goes to all those other bullshit bowls so those conferences that make the college football playoffs they get the lion's share that dobie so boom it under the bcs system the combined pay out of those six game plus the bcs championship speaking again about the major bowl game six bogus. That people actually care about the bcs championship game. That was two hundred. Twenty seven million in during this last year of existence in the twenty thirteen fourteen season and that but mostly due to espn which was in about seven point. Three billion dollars combined televise those six bowl games plus the championship during that twelve year period. So that was another. That was another. Rob added another revenue stream that That's coming into these days. So that's what college football is all about so been weird been uneven been awkward still interested but it's always still a reminder that college football student athletes holy shit that they're talking about nothing but bullshit you won't both the Cabrera n- miana window. Wallace women met the one language. Or what what. What language speaking here. Come on boot. que pas si. Yeah we'll talk about wendell's world of sports. I'm your host one. The wall was getting down. Let's go do this speaking about what's going on in the world of sports. I told you man man when you get a good day. I'm not. I'm not a parent so you know i'm not around kids around anybody to go to the pandemic but i miss school into the classroom. I miss with the kids man. I miss learning. I'm as well. You can learn a lot from the kids much before i told kim before. Look i don't have kids. So you know anything in terms of generation and everything. I've learned from y'all so if i'm walking around the classroom on these dropping if i'm in earshot up talking about what's going on with your lives or whatever in terms of anything that i can Compute and take into account when listening to young people. I'm trying. I'm trying my best. So i miss the i miss east dropping. I miss being nosy. I miss you know getting into the conversations. And i miss the teacher's aides. 'cause i always tell the teachers aides. Look you have two options here unless the teacher gives them something to do when i have to relate to them i say look. You've got two options here either. You're going to. I can read you a pass. You can go to the library or it. Looks like you only doing anything. If i have senior class if i'm substituting senior physics or something that's like these kids are also depending upon what school i am. I'm not met during the day of the kids are awesome. It's like look you know what you have two options you can go over there and if you know anybody here hang out with them. Top chitty chat and talk about what's going on in your life or you can go to another class. do some other worker. You can go to the cafeteria and hang out with your friends. You can do whatever because you know. Miss johnson miss smith is jones. Didn't leave here anything for you to do today. But i'm telling you one thing if you're gonna stay here you're gonna talk to me if you're gonna talk to me. I will be asking your questions. I'm gonna try to get you know they'll inside on what's going down. Was you know if you're a senior. Are you going to be going to college. What colleges are looking at. What's going to be your major what you wanna do. You grow up this any other. So that's what i'm gonna be doing now. My advice is to lie. And say i've got to go somewhere aren't really do something because i wanna talk. You're off because we got another seventy eight minutes to go. We can another fifty minutes to go. And i can ramble and i can talk so my suggestion would be for you. I could write your past. You can go to looming up with your buddies or go to another room where you can do anything you can to get away from me. That would be my suggestion. But i'm here if you stay here and if you're going to be sitting right here we're going to have a conversation because i wanna get knowledgeable. I wanna get educated and turn the younger folks. Were doing the peach. Sometimes they're like yeah. Give me a basket. The fuck out of here or there like school. We want to know. So so i miss one of the things. I miss about. Not being in the classroom and dealing in learning from the younger generation at all the motherfuckers. They'll be taken care of in you when everybody else. Everybody my generation when we get older and Yeah so. I want to find out what makes them tick. What world is sports. I'm your host wonderwall. Wallace so glad you could be with us. man Did you see history being made in college. Football saturday this past saturday vanderbilt kicker sarah fuller when she kicked off for the vanderbilt commodores in the second half of their game against missouri she became the first woman to play in a power five. Football game is kicking off really playing. I mean i know playing in a college football game but she kicked off with that really. That really playing. I'm just. I'm not criticizing i'm asking i'm asking that's all so. How did the opportunity come about the fact that because many people are saying. This is a publicity stunt and everything. I don't think that. I think the case bendable had a grand kicker opt out because the team stinks the and other kickers opt out because of the covid nineteen testing so they had to go into quarantine and they didn't have any kickers. This is the one that situation where everybody was rolling ready to go from the ticking standpoint and now ex coach derek mason said but fellas. We really don't need you this week. We're going to bring sarah filler. Because i need to save my job. Where owen seven. Where puget we stink and even at vanderbilt even in school like vanderbilt and did show something. So i need to. I dunno visit distraction. The feel good story. Whatever but any something to say my job. So you guys bombing us. We're gonna to bring in sarah fuller for the publicity. Don't don't think at all. I think it was a situation. Which was they needed. Kickers they had tryouts. She happened to be the best one. She just happened to be a female another all of that absolutely not raw. Nothing wrong with that so in doing so again. She became the first player. I i in the plano power. Five conference of a football game. fuller's normally a goalkeeper for the variables. Sec championship soccer team. When she tried out. So let me see jacqueline jacksonville. States ashley martin. In two thousand one became the first woman the score of the visual in college. Football the a college football game when she may three extra points and then new mexico. state's katie. Neither h an idea helped the age silent in two thousand and three became the first woman to score at the fbi levels. So i mean she's i mean getting katie fuller First person first female to play in a power five conference game but there were others before her in terms of females playing in a football game. And as i mentioned before. Ashley martin jacksonville state becoming the first woman and i guess you could say what still the first woman to score in a division one college football game when she made three extra points so miss fuller was deemed the special teams. Sec special teams player of the week on monday. And that'll be jason whitlock on. Because i do think this is a great situation to do a great deal. I don't think it was a publicity stunt. I think it was great. She tried out. She was the best one. I wouldn't privy to any of the Workouts i didn't know who else he was competing against so if the coach said that she would the best qualified most qualified will then see. Should there much as female male. And we'll give that. She's the best person for the job than she should get that opportunity then. She should be able to do that. So i don't have an opportunity and yes moving forward. We're always trying to move forward in a positive direction for everybody. Male female black white whatever. So yes i understand the importance and now women are sitting there talking about louis. Now i wanna be a kicker. Now i feel. I can do things. That maybe i wouldn't be able to do or wouldn't be able to attempt or wouldn't be able to try or would have been talked adult because now what she did and so. I understand the significance. I understand the importance. And i have no problem with doing that. I have no problem with her. Going to georgia with the team and kicking if sees the best one. That can do it then. Let her keep on doing it. I don't give a damn about the. The female gender thing never entered my mind. Is she the birth person. it's a bad person. Whoever the best person to do. That's all i care about. That's all i care about so kudos to her mom. My deal is It's like a okay. Where do we go from here. Because i don't think there's going to be a whole bum rush of females who are looking to trial four field goal kickers for men's football team thirty. Nfl or anything. like that. and i don't i don't know i i. It's a situation because of that. It's a nice story in a wonderful story but let's not have that. Take attention away from female sports who need more attention. You know what i'm saying. I mean let's have the opportunity of of a fuller being able to Kick in this in this game. Sarah four being able to kick in this game. Let's now have that transfer over to what's going down with the women's soccer team. You know what i'm saying because that's where i think. I'm not really interested in because nothing to happen. You're not gonna have women playing quarterback you're not going to have women playing offense tackle. You're gonna have women playing linebacker so my point is this is a wonderful moment in this great moment. Let's use that moment. Let's use that momentum. Let's us that That that impact list youth significance to now place it over to sports such as women's sports women's sports canal. Now get more attention or more attention than they deserve that. That's the only thing that i'm talking about. Because look the kick that she had it was it was really gender gender out of it all right because the metoo movement and everything. That's what you're talking about. Look don't be talking about. Oh she kissed good for a girl or she does well for a girl or she knows this. Wow that's impressive. Do due to the fact that she's a girl if we're gonna be doing now on taking gender out don't judge on a curve in terms of yeah you know what she did well for a girl out of the equation take a look at the kick you know analyze to kick. It was a low squib kick. Now you could say was designed by the coaches to limit the possibility of return but it travel only thirty yards down at the thirty five yard line so again which missouri was whooping on vanderbilt some fierce in ultimately won the game forty one to nothing which it didn't caught during mesa's is job but he was fired right after the game it was. It was pretty lame the kick yourself with pretty lame if we could it. Will it will really want to be honest about emma. Vanderbilt's currently eight the season. No one's giving a damn vanderbilt hasn't been heard from seen from cared about for a couple of years. Since when they started off i think they started off three a couple of years ago. And they played alabama the next weekend before the game. They were turpin and talking. Some nonsense like alabama better. Be ready in alabama be the two hundred fourteen and nothing some shit like that but others. I mean vanderbilt is a nothing program. If our football concern is consciousness relevance in the entire football college football landscape so hey you know what does female proved that. She's the best person for the job then pool. My only problem is is that the best person for the job. How bad are the kickers. Outside of the ones that are already on the team not being able to play because of covid issues. How many how. Bad is the kicking talent on the campus of vanderbilt university where she got the job. If that's going to be if that if that off with the best thing that came out of there in terms of a she was the best one what would the others like. How bad were the other kickers. Who tried out for the team. I mean how bad were there kicks so again. She expected to continue as vanderbilt place. Kicker on saturday georgia vanderbilt interim coach todd fitch told reporters on tuesday. That fuller is practicing with the team and will be on travel roster and We have to be. We have to be careful. We have to be careful. This is a fifteen minutes of fame type of story. I'm sorry i'm sorry again. I'm glad that she had the opportunity. Cool if she were the best one to do it then by means i have no problems at all whether it being the kicker if she with the best person for the job but come on man let's canas like start calming down on the social significance of this okay. I mean she still a female and it's still going to be some boundaries because she's a female that males cannot cannot go over. Touchy whatever did you hear about this bullshit about. She blasted her new teammates at halftime the halftime speech. Her what she she told. Espn courtney cronin. When asked did you really going into halftime lambaste verbally. Lambaste the football team. She was like. I just went in there and i said exactly what i was thinking. I was like we need to be cheering. Each other on this is how you win games. This is how you get better by calling each other out for stuff. And i'm going to call you out. I'm gonna call you guys out. We need to be supporting one. Another this you also added. She was a little pissed off at how quiet everybody was on the sideline. We made a first dam. When cheering and i was like what the heck what's going on and i try to get them pumped up okay. All right said nothing to do with the gender. Okay this has nothing to do with gender but just pretend just pretend not pretend. Let's go wheel rolled on this. If a male kicker who it just joining the team had never played the sport before from the men's let's say the goalkeeper from the men's soccer team at vanderbilt had one job and then he came into the locker room and started lambasting and started calling out teammates at halftime. What do you think the male football players at vanderbilt would have said in done to this guy what they probably would have said number one. Who the fuck are you number to shut the fuck up number three. If you don't shut the fuck up. I am going to black. I am going to go to shatter your jaw. Shut the fuck up and we will take turns each woah team take turns first telling you to shut the fuck up. No you replace your fucking kicker. You're not even on this fucking team. You're coming into here and you're going to be calling us out. Fuck you fell us get him. There ain't no fucking way a male kicker who just joined the team who had never played football before wasn't even all the team would have the nerve a kicker of all people a kicker the komo to the locker room i hadn't played the full game hasn't even done anything to go in there and start calling guys she it but because she the woman. But you know nobody's going to be. You know what guys going to say the things that needs to be said from this woman walking in here and talking about you know. We need to do this and we need to do this. And i can't believe you guys don't know how to win and let me show you guys. How the winning. Fuck you fuck you. You're goddamn goddamn soccer player. Got fucking sakes will be fucking shit. Shut the fuck up and sit the fuck down. That was should've said he come on man and again it had nothing to do with the gender. It's just a nerve. The lateral awareness. The eight. i guess from the political standpoint football kickers one of the last time you a kicker up there talking smack what was the last time in football at any level then a kicker was coming in their business and up there talking raises his voice in. Do some type of shit like that. Don't happen to fucking football. Because you're a fucking kicker unless you're a do guy. Let's wore a kicker in a quarterback kicker in a defensive lineman kicker in a real football fucking player ain't no football player who the kicker legally walking in there talking shit but because she's a female which one is going to be able to address her life he needs to needed to be addressed in terms of those role is shut your mouth at the rock said no your role is shut your mouth before i take it down to notable boulevard brownie drive. Wasn't even funnier fully was talking about after the speech. She said she had coaches. Come up to me. And say i've been wanted to say that for a while. Now those fucking coaches should be fired. You're coaches independent wanting to say that either you've been buzzing by the head coach to say you know what guys let it be. Don't go in there or you guys are too cowardly to spineless too gutless to go ahead and say something like that tell you have to put it on a place. Don't give a fuck about what gender she is but you're up there talking about well. We have a place kicker. Say something that. I've been dying to save but didn't have the guts didn't have the balls didn't have the permission didn't have the spine to go ahead and do it unites. No wonder you motherfuckers are. Oh innate nobody you guys have a wallet game. no wonder you guys. Aren't embarrassment. Sec football jeez man then someone compared what she did with jackie robinson in terms of breaking the color barrier in baseball. Oh my my goodness gracious. Stop stop stop. Stop stop please stop. Stop stop stop stop. please stop. please stop please. Stop. don't go up. She kicked off. She didn't make a tackle. She didn't catch pass she android plas. Pass block anybody. She made one play she. Then therefore sixty snaps fifty snaps twenty snaps ten snaps. She kicked the ball off once and it was ugly in the put the defense in a horrible position. Stop stop with the again. I am happy. I am glad if this can be a movement to where women is. Sports can better themselves get more money. Get more exposure. How about younger generations of females and do all those type of things. Hey more power to or good good. Good good great-great-great fabulous moment moment. Wonderful moment historical moment. Whatever but let's just keep the shit in perspective in less keep the focus on where it should be not the fact that we good golly miss molly that we have a female. Who's now going to be able to play a man's sport even if it's going to be just for one play for a couple of more game because of a pandemic situation. Let's let's use this now to focus on putting spotlight putting some on the women's sports. I'm not interested in a woman infiltrating and playing a man's sport i'm not interested in the uplifting and the availability that women will have to say when you won't play with men i can go ahead and play. The women may no fucking big deal about playing when the man playing a man's sport when fuck knew that i have a i have the opportunity to play the wnba. I have the opportunity to play in the pro women's soccer league. I have the opportunity to play the pro softball leagues opportunity to play female tennis wagging female and female golf which is just as financially possible and putin in fantastic the men so i don't need to go to the men to go ahead and do them. I can do just as well be just as happy and be just as impact impact not just for women but for people all over playing might female sport. Hopefully that is the lesson that is a direction that they'll go. I hope what role the sports. I'm your host. Wonderwall is so that you could be with us. Come on guys lintas you guys are losers. Played being being the goaltender for the sec. Championship women's soccer team guys. Need to be this. You guys need to do that. You guys needed a bit. Shut the fuck up and said down. Could you imagine me walking on the field with a women's soccer game at halftime me. Walk in and do the locker room. You'll need to do this. Women need to do that. How dare you got. You gotta do this. You guys can't do that. I would not. I would not be offended at all if those women looked at me said shut the fuck up get. I'll get alvin. Came here fifteen minutes ago and now he's turned. Tell us how to play soccer. Get the fuck outta here man yet. So it's again sarah fuller situation. It's interesting when does world is sports on murals to win the glad that you could be with us turning to your nfl. Some games of interest this weekend for me. Cleveland at tennessee. Both teams coming into the game with eight and three records on one hand. Tennessee's like air eight one. Three good wins against indy and the overtime victory against baltimore and the other side. You got cleveland. Eight and farinas like. Yeah an-and yeah we'll ever makes me say that cleveland has a lot more to prove in this game. It's eighty three team. But does anyone feel like this is really a true eight thousand eight hundred eighteen team cleveland. We're speaking about a strong possibility of making the playoffs for the first time. Eighteen years man well in the most sad sect dysfunctional embarrassing organization for the last eighteen. Twenty twenty five years. Jimmy has little owner coaches after every fifteen games feels like man you guys now in a position to end the long drought by any team currently in the nfl in terms of not making the playoffs. Play cleveland should be jumping for joy. Man that's to be one of the major headwinds for sports is concerned right now. Eight three but devil is in the detail and according to espn football power index or the fbi. Cleveland has the third easiest schedule in the league to date so the browns have no wins against anyone ranked in the fbi top ten. They only have one victory. That's indianapolis thirty four. Twenty three of anyone in the fbi. Top fifteen and they have two wins. The houston texans who they tend to seven in a game. That was whether you know whether played a role in indianapolis. Those are the only two once they've had get poland's opponents rain in the top twenty and then when you take a look at the three losses that they've had baltimore oakland and pittsburgh and they've lost those games by a combined score of ninety two to nineteen and then you think about the fact that they play close game against cincinnati jacksonville and philadelphia and dallas. Those betty you sit there and you say yeah and free. But i mean you know. Are they going to beat the steelers. Are they going to be the chiefs. Are they going to beat these teams that you know. I mean great that we're making the playoffs and don't give a fuck. You guys could play like you know if the cleveland browns were playing central high school. Or some shit. Like that mueller high school. I don't give a damn. You guys should still be excited. The fact that you guys are going to be making the playoffs and the fact that you guys might have the best running back tandem in the league by far you might have the best run back in the game. I know you've got another camera. You could make argument for and derrick. Henry you can definitely make an argument for in the delvin cook and minnesota. You could make an argument for but you're going to try to tell me nick. Chubb man nick. Chubb is a baller. Nick job arguably the best rolling back in the game. You're talking about a guy who was a pro bowler last season. Who ran for fifteen hundred yard. Well he's rush road for about seven hundred and twenty your so far this season and six touchdowns and he's missed four games with an injury and that israel offense kareem hunt. Who's you know rehabilitated. His career very nicely after the situation in kansas city which off the field incident which caused kansas city to say goodbye to him. He's rushed for seven hundred and six yards. He scored four touchdowns rushing. And he's leading the team four touchdown receptions and you had to doing this without your most talented offensive football player physically gifted offensive football player in odell odell beckham junior. So hey you know what excellent formula right here now. The key is going to be when you're going to have to put points on the board because if you're going to be playing the city if you're going to be playing pittsburgh that ball control might be nice but are you guys will be able to outscore a patrick mahomes. Are you going to be able to have it offense as that's going to have to put up at least twenty eight points against patrick mahomes. Are you going to be able to control the clock and control the ball against a defense like pittsburgh. I mean when you're speaking about a team might baltimore. I mean is a huge game for tennessee. Because you have to put a win in the column in terms of amen we can play just eighteen when we make the playoffs and now situation of if the cleveland. Browns made the playoffs for the position. This season of win so when you get to these games. I mean we're not gonna have the ability to fight scratch and claw and beat the cincinnati's in the jacksonville's of the world. Do we really have what it takes in. This will be a good answer in the game against tennessee. Especially a game on the road tennessee. On the other hand they won three forces losing consecutive games to pittsburgh in a while really game to cincinnati but sunday. They beat up on the colts even though they were the culprit playing with a couple of defensive lineman that were absent because the kobe the fourth of the bucket force being one of them Along with the game against the ravens in which they down over of a sudden two weeks ago the tennessee titans who were out in the playoffs situation now fast forward two weeks now. They're the number. Three seed in the playoff standings with five regular season games left derrick henry being a beast. I mentioned before about how good nick chubb is the first agility of many people who really know the game of football. Say that won't be an reasons why they would go with niche up over derrick henry in terms of who the best believe back over the better rolling back the two but derrick henry is the beast now. Your nick chubb can beat. You're catching the football and breakaway speed. And all those things he hit the line a little bit faster and all those type of things. But derrick henry just wears you down and again he ran for hunting. Seventy eight yards three touchdown. Twenty eight carries against indianapolis the week before. Daddy gets baltimore. You ready for one hundred thirty three yards including the game winning touchdown in overtime on twenty series of baltimore yet in the first quarter because of his style of running and you know him as a rolling back yet. Nick chop can Go ahead and do some things. Catch the ball out of the backfield. Do some things. Meanwhile you know derrick. Henry started that big boy had to get going and going so he's not nick. Chubb might be able to break back after carry number three kerry number four or catching the ball out of the backfield. Making something happened on the fifth of six. Play the game to put cleveland in an advantageous position. Because of that many people are saying that. The reason why they would go with. Nick chubb being the better bring back derrick henry but shit man i mean just throughout the totality of the game when you have to continue to hit derrick henry and europe undersized safety or your cornerback or something like that and you're going up against the big strong offensive line as far as the defensive line is concerned in linebacker such and you might have to be dealing with derrick henry. After the fifth carried the tenth carry the fifteenth carried. The eighteenth carry the twenty second carey. And you've been as far as the secondary concern with the other team you've been having to deal with the big bodies that right wide receiver in the tight end position so everywhere. You look at a skill position from the tennessee titans standpoint. you're dealing with big physical strong players that when you bring them down to the ground when you tackle them is going to hurt. You're gonna feel it. It might not happen the first time it might not happen. Snap sixteen might not happen in the second quarter. It might not happen on. Snap number forty six but at the game wears on and on and on and you have to deal with that brutality. The team that both resembles the stanford cardinal under david shaw when those gaffer in terms of the physicality of that team from an offensive standpoint. It wears down on and because of that you have the main wearer down. Which is derrick henry by the fourth quarter. Man after being in a game like this motherfucker Touch they gathered to tackle the guide anymore. I mean there is a don't want to when that time period cover. That's the time. When derrick henry starts motoring that's the time when derrick henry starts moving and grooving so it's tough. It's tough you throw in the fact that the resurrection of ryan tannehill continues going into sunday. Or what sixteen and seven. Since he became the star and includes three playoff win that includes beating the baltimore ravens fourteen to baltimore. Ravens breeding them soundly last season. That's a situation where they lead kids city seventeen nothing in the afc championship game on the road before it gives the exploded so bows garrett who is going to be back from being kobe. Nineteen list. It's going to have its hands full in we speak about you know now quarterbacks being impact players in the nfl you can throw in a aaron donald court from the defensive side of the field but myles garrett is right there. I mean he's right. Up there with the jalen ramsey of the world and those type of player the tj watts of the world and terms of the impact that he can have the type of a player that he is but because tennessee is more of a smash mouth football team. The guy who ranks third in saxony nfl might not be able to get as many opportunities because as i mentioned before tennessee wanting to establish the run. So it'll be an interesting game. I think tennessee is going to win. will there be any type of positively or will there be lead like i don't feel orange slices participation trophies. If the cleveland browns can hang a walk off the field by say you know what we can fucking play with his team. I mean how far will that go. If it's if it's a it's a close game of tennessee blows amount beats him up. Then you know. I don't know the morale moving forward for the matches for the cleveland browns team up for the organization and the fan base itself. But you know as i mentioned before with eight and three even though there are a couple of days behind pittsburgh beginnings behind pittsburgh and still having baltimore nipping at the heels. Despite the fact that they're not six and five It's a it's a game. Where if cleveland loses depending upon how they lose. I don't think it would be that big of an impact if they get blown out and like i said before it could be a bigger impact that way but we'll see what makes spring Wonderful as far as watching football concern when does willman sports. I'm your host window wallace so glad that you could be with us the other game that. I'm interested in the indianapolis colts seven and four at the houston texans for seven. You know that houston foreign three under interim head coach romeo cornell after going four with bill. O'brien at the head coach down i. Three of the four games were brutal. There's no shame and losing to the kids cities defending shop cheviots. No shame in the game. The luther pittsburgh's shaving in the game to lose the baltimore shaming the game duluth minnesota though was dropped at forum was kind of like bill. You gotta go. I got more mainly. I got fired because they realized we fucking traded. He tweeted out. Drew hopkins for who but since one at five after losing to a tendency in overtime forty two thirty six a game that they should've won if they wanna make the two point conversion and losing the green bay thirty five to twenty look after that juices beat jacksonville. New england detroit and between losing the cleveland. At cleveland in Element type game tend to seven. So they're they're sniffing this sniffing the outside the playoff spot. I mean two wins away from being a win away from being a major player in the in the playoffs. So who sean watching. I wanna keep saying the name. Because despite the fact of the record that the texans have i think that he is should be. I think that he should be talked about in terms of Mvp consideration if he continues to play this way not saying that he's doing to win it. But i think in terms of speaking about bringing up the discussion even for second. I think the way that he's playing. Despite the fact that three games under five hundred. I think the shot. The sean is playing that type of ball the where he should be mentioned and mvp discussions. He's been greatly ever since o'brien fired. He's been unleashed. I mean one. Twenty point three passer rating since week five which holds the rest of the season it would be the third highest passer rating among qualified. Qb's after week five and then fell history. That's been scully stat for you. His best wide receiver though. It's gonna be hard because bent wide receiver. Woeful there's going to be suspended each suspended for the rest of the season because he violated the nfl policy on performance enhancing drugs. And you're also speaking about the starting quarterback for the texas bradley roby. He's also done for the year because he violated the performance. Enhancing protocol for the nfl. Slow your speaking about t. y. Hilton for the indianapolis colts. Eating the houston texans for lunch breakfast and dinner and in between meals from what he's done in the sixteenth career games against utah call eighty five passes for over fifteen hundred yards and ten touchdowns and now texas houston. Texans don't have the best cornerback to line up against them. Bad news bad news bad news so look indeed. Didn't have their best player available again. The ford butler. He's still on the covert nineteen less. We still don't know if he's going to be able to play on sunday. But texans aren't some trouble taxes aren't trouble without wolf fuller on mean Sean turn him into a really competent wide receiver. Get detroit he caught seven passes for buck forty. But you're taking a look right now at the texans playoff position. I need a miracle to get into contention there one game behind the patriots. Two games behind las vegas and baltimore. Three games behind miami and indi who occupied is number six and seven seats in the playoffs. Seven teams the top seven seeds to make the play. Also they've got to be like some type of beta catastrophe With the colts in the dolphins and the ravens in even the raiders. For the texans to even think about making the playoffs. But as i mentioned before on my last podcast if detroit shooting and get to eight naacp seventy nine nine seven and sean continues to play like. He's playing another currently tie for eleven with the denver broncos but even if he can bring him up to ninth or something like that with a five hundred regular above yemen. Let people know that shawn watson was considered for. mvp let that shine glow in glow in global. Because the shawn watson franchise quarterback windows. World is sports on your host wanted to wallis of lead. You could be with us last game touch on in the nfl genes of interest. The la rams seven four played against the are at the arizona cardinals. Sixty five both teams coming off bad losses. Both on game-ending field goals arizona losing to the patriots twenty seventeen the ram lose again home. Do of san francisco forty niners over the twenty seven twenty four thirty twenty seven. Something like that so interested in the matchup between jalen ramsey and dr dre hopkins. That's going to be pretty good. I'm wondering if the rams are going to be able to run. The football against the arizona defense has given up one hundred and twenty three yards per game the quarterback for actually mentioned one time. What game with that. I think it was the game. What game afterwards. I talk about chi-wood murray being considered for the mvp if he continues the play like he's playing a game where it was getting buffalo. Where hopkins saved his ass by making incredible catch but He's he's got a sore shoulder so we don't know what's going to be about that so we'll see if Diesel beginning any type of running plays or anything like that. But that's the other game interested in the rams and the cardinals big game for both of those teams for the rams getting back to their perch atop the nfc west and four the cardinals to get themselves back into playoff contention. Wendell's world sports the podcast. I'm your host win the wallace so glad that you could be with us halo Time for beat. You pull almost superman cape time for me to take off the glasses time for me to go to the phone booth time to take off my shirt. Show the s on my chest time for me to Rescue chris collins worth boy. Mel boy made a very tamed. I'd say sexist comment during the wednesday afternoon broadcast of the baltimore ravens game against the pittsburgh steelers. He said i'm a fan everybody's event. I guess he was talking about the a pittsburgh fan base. Everybody's a fan. That particular the ladies that i met who boy. They had all had really specific questions about the game. And i'm like wow you're just blown away about how strong the fans are here in this town. Well oh man that just he let he let he lit that fuse and it went boom now. He mentioned the fact that you know. Hey everybody the fans here in. This town are unbelievable. The tactic they're great particularly the ladies. Unbelievable i can't believe it. Well who and killing him. The sports columnist for the san francisco chronicle. She tweeted so far. This year chris collins worked had made fun of wearing masks and seem stunned. That ladies know about football maybe the nfl could fill him in about their viewership demographics. He seemed to be a newbie to this game. All right all right. And i got news for you. Chris collins knows about evidently more about football. The new stop please julie. The coral the senior writer editor at deadspin she wrote on a site that titled dear chris collins worth i have. I have some really specific questions about your sexism. All right all right all right all right any apple g. The writer journalist Nfl mom she wrote let black woman to she wrote. Still shaking my head. That cosworth was shocked that women no in watch football and that we have specific questions about the game someone. Please tell chris we do have. Tv's in the kitchen. All right all right all right All right michelle martinelli. She writes for the win. Usa today sports very blog. She tweeted no dude seems surprised that women are knowledgeable about things. That's just a good rule. The follow whether you are talking about sports or woodworking or interior design or engineering or cooking or astrophysics or whatever. All right all right all right all right all right ladies ladies please condo calm down now. What calls were said new. I wouldn't have said it probably will kept to myself. I read this when over this. I'll be the first one to tell you as a guy who watches football as a guy. He loves football to the podcast. I when i looked up looked it up and turn the women watching sports. I was surprised. I have to admit i was surprised according to a terrace element of the boston globe. Nfl rating numbers continued to show. The women are the fastest growing segment of the league's viewing fan base. I had no idea. I had no idea. And let them make me a sexist. It didn't make me that. I think that women should be pregnant in the kitchen barefoot. I had no idea. I don't follow too much the demographics of who watches football and what watches football. My main interest in football is which teams are good which teams are ban can washington football team. Please do something to get rid of daniel. Snyder can the washington football team. Continue to lose. So we can get ourselves a franchise. Quarterback can shawn watson continued to play. Well pecking mahomes. It's amazing the. Las vegas raiders. Were doing their thing. Going to be allowed to go back to the to the stadiums who did what who sacks. Who made the both passing yards who've made the most impactful plays in the game from a day to day week to week military minute assessment and watching and learning and being in caring about the nfl. That's what i focused on. Who watches the game. Who doesn't watch the game. What gender race. whatever. I don't know i haven't really put too much time into checking the numbers to see. Exactly how many women. How many men. How many gays. How many lesbians. How many blacks and jews. How many republicans. How many folks from the north west coast from other countries have watched football games. I i haven't done my research on that. I'm sorry that makes me sexist and that makes me Whatever then guilty as charged by never really put that much thought an emphasis on women watching football. I i don't care if they watch football or not. I watched football. I don't care men watch it. I don't care black people watching. I don't care gay people like it. I don't care if he just like it. I know that i like it. I know it's a very popular sport. So fucking good enough for me. So i and you know what i think. That's also what chris coon was worth thinks. Only chris college were to spend a lot of time going over the fact of who watches football. And who doesn't. I shocked again. I have a lot of friends who are no. I have a lot of female. And they'll have a female friends currently goddamn it but you know throughout my long life here and most females that. I've known all that kind of stuff. They don't watch football they don't watch football out of the percentage of female that i've known about ninety eight percent of them haven't what don't watch football not interested in football. Could care less about football so there you go so the fact that these numbers are showing that women are the fastest growing segment of people watching football. Great fantastic wonderful awesome. But i had no idea foss fox sports executive vice president head of strategy and in lenox. Mike mobile said that we're seeing what we're seeing is not only women's viewership up but it is up at a greater rate than that of men and i men whining and complaining all the time. Because you know colin kaepernick taking the league all these other bullshit that they're gonna be watching football anymore. So maybe there's a situation where more men care about that stupid shit. The women do but viewership is up through week. Five at fox bowl ville said that the sunday nfl packages up nine percent of women viewers in the twenty five to fifty four demographic five percent among men and that the thursday night football package is up seventeen percent among women in nine percent among men. He's also said we'd been playing paying close attention to the trend among female viewers. Because i feel like is going to have an impact on our future goals of the business of the nfl. Not terribly surprised by it. Because i feel it's a trend. That's been a long time coming wonderful great but look i got an. I got something to say to the women out here who are going to bash. Who are raked. Chris collins worth over the coals. Who are gonna columnists sexist in all this kind of stuff for all of you women. Who are doing that. I've got two words for you.

Could you get worse this has to be. I mean we've had them bad losses in the last three years. I mean some embarrassing losses. But i don't know if losing to navy seventy sixty two on tuesday evening that if that's not the worst in euro is right there close and over beats beats getting blown out by the paul a couple of years ago but It's close six possessions path before either team got on the board start game. John carter falling valley davar blair in the act of shooting from beyond the arc so of course after about the first four possessions us going to be one of these games so maybe led twenty nine twenty six at the half. Georgetown finish the first half shooting. Just twenty five percent from the field. Missy tannen fifteen from three point range navy on the other hand. Starting nobody saw than six seven had twenty seventeen advantage on the boards at the half for the game. I think the outscored. Georgetown like forty two twenty two on a pain or something like that again jordan. Have anybody navy. Didn't have anybody over six seven second half a plane. Georgetown started off pretty strong. Navy hug around. Georgetown one into one of their predictable. Droughts where they couldn't make a shot navy then you know ultimately started playing like a division one basketball team so down to six thirty eight left. The play Davis sank a long three pointer to give navy league for the first time. They wouldn't relinquish it at sixty one sixty. They extended it to three on a gold term by timothy eagle. Hefei why in these fuck is. He's still playing at this point in the game. I have no idea then. A driving layup by davis gave the midshipmen a three point. Lead at the five minute mark. Sixty five sixty two then often missed three pointer from georgetown. Surprise surprise john. Carter sank a three pointer. Put it up. Sixty eight sixty two after me. Yelling screaming throwing kicking cursing the lord and everything else. david shredded the georgetown pivot with an easy basket that the three eleven mark did make it. Seven hundred. sixty two resignations set in. And i just said we're gonna lose to navy. Three pointer from jalen harris brought georgetown within six at two thirty to forty. Three mark buckling damn do but consecutive georgetown turnovers converted in the side for a seventy six sixty eight lead entering the final minute and i just hated everybody. Who's ever like on planet earth with the exception on my parents. Burrell davis m my goddaughter and his family navy shot sixty percent from the field in the second half georgetown which is five or sixteen for the three point line in the second half navy navy fucking navy not scholarship fucking navy. Had the two best players on the floor by a wide fucking morgan. Do you hear that. You're marco picket. Do you hear that giovane blair. Do you hear that jalen harris. Do you hear that to ball. Do you fucking hear that. Dante harris do you hear that cuba's hob navy done scholarship. Navy had two of the best players all the floor by mile. Kim davis and john collar forty eight points between them. Eighteen or twenty nine shooting from the floor. Eight of fourteen from the three point line committed one turnover between them navy navy. Scholarship devi patriot league basketball navy. Me could you imagine having those two guys. Let me if we could ship off. Jalen harris ingeba trade jalen harris in japan blair for ken davidson john carter. I swear we might finish like seventh or eighth a conference now with their coaching. Who knows but we didn't. We will do better with those two guys and we could trace seniors. How many people right now. Who are georgetown. Fans wouldn't trade demarco picket in japan. Blair for kim davis and john carter right now. I do that move twelve hundred ten times. I will do that. Move eight days a week. I would do that. Move twenty five hour today. I would do that move. Three hundred seventy days a year. Japan demarco picket. Each has seventeen points to swap has sixteen point seven rebounds. Now jalen harris did play. Well i mean. I'll give him that. He had double figures three or five for the three point. Line a step back three. I was like what the fuck you ooh. That pretty good so he. He did play well in the second. Half seven assists Limited turnover so jalen harrison. Wealthy did well. We did well on anybody but he did. Well but the team shop forty two percent from the field thirty two percents of the three point line for the game Coach doing i am. I'm back in your. I'm still back in your but that was a horrendous. Coaching game. i. I i don't know i mean that was bad. That was bad did toby. Clark has ten rebounds. The first game played seven minutes the second game. He didn't play the second half. I thought that I thought that Colin powell played better than to bile. Continue to go with him. Instead of playing a colin holloway. Why thought played pretty well. You couldn't increase kobe. Clark's i mean. It seemed like kobe clark mediate barrel. Have the same type of game energy guys. Rebound guys hustle A defensive guys. I mean i mean. He threw up some shots from three point line. I was like what in the holy. Fuck are you doing. Jamaica pig up. Threw up a shot right side. Second-half shot that hit the high backboard high backboard way outside the rim wasn't even close. Georgetown threw up some shots. That were mind blowing. -ly laughably unbelievably ridiculous. It was it was it was it was like it was embarrassing. They draw is like it was like if someone was playing. If kids is playing like a really sorry d three school in the d three player drove here like he was some five eight nine athletic guy going up against some first round. Nba lottery pick. And it's all right. Try to get off your shot without getting blocked any tried to do all these condemnations twisting and all this trying to stop all this type of movie flops. Shot in the ball wouldn't even come close to the rim. I swear i think counted for the game maybe injured or shot from georgetown. That looked like that note. No chance of going in it look ridiculous it was just mind blowing like how would you still a division one basketball player. You play your scholarship basketball player at a high major university. You motherfuckers can play no matter how bad you look. You can play great basketball players. But jesus flip for the level. That were playing. What in the hell with that clark julie. A vial timothy ego have paid dirty. Here's the bench players for georgetown shot for eleven from the field. Oh from five from the three point. Line one fucking point one point to mind no field goals one fucking point. I don't know man. I play what virginia at home on. Sunday. i'm gonna watch. I know we're gonna get our asses kicked. I mean what with gonzaga for most of the game with the number one team that country and looks really really good. Where we're we're gonna get destroyed. This is going to be a down year. I know this was going to a down year. Everybody was preparing for a down year in and look. It's one game. It's the second game of the season you've got nine. New players just started practice late because of the pandemic. You're living in ridiculous situations to where you go straight from the gym to your room. I mean this is just. I mean this year is just you know everything. It just thrown into wack thrown out thrown lawak so for all the years for georgetown. The have a bad team in that tried to improve and try to gain the maximum amount of potential from the team. I mean you put that in in a situation like this. I knew i had a strong indication. I sat a strong inclination that we were gonna lose to navy. But it's like saying it actually happening is like two totally different things. I know we're gonna get blue. I just wanna competitive game could keep the loss to what virginia between twelve in eighteen. I'll be happy now. Of course we'll lose by fifteen. And i'll be crying uncontrollably for like four hours afterwards but no seriously. My realistically is like just play hard. Just fucking play hard. That's all i want for you guys to play hard and coach pulling guys who are going to play hard. We ain't making the tournament this year. Yeah i know. I know that you want to win basketball games but come coach. I mean let's be real here. We go into the tournament. We don't even know if there's gonna be a term but even if there is a we go into the ncaa tournament where we pick land for a reason. You said it yourself that you were coaching the other team. You will picked this last soul. You know that there's no like you know there's no way miracle here putting in some guys from just wanna play hard even if they're not ready. I mean kobe clark. At basketball player has a lot of work to do in terms of his skill. Set especially at the offense have been with. That guy plays fucking hard. I mean he plays hard so if he's gonna be train wreck on offense knee might not know what to do defense and at least he's playing hard at least he's trying hard. I swore five. We're going to try hard. I mean what's the big deal. If we lose a fifteen or forty a loss loss. I mean there are no bad loss at this year coach. We ain't getting in the we get in the ncaa. So what's the point. Who cares about whether how badly we lose. We are not beating west virginia. We are not beating delicate. We are not beating creighton. We are not being villanova. Those teams are going to embarrass us. There is no rainbow. There is no ncaa birth possible. There is no avenue for postseason. Play there is no. We're not talented enough. We're not good enough. We're not experienced enough. This year's too fucked up to even try to try to you know. Get some talent from this group to make it to where we're even contenders it ain't happened. So let's just. I just wanna see the young cats coming into play. I fucking tj burger and let them get eaten alive. Putting jabbar's simply didn't get eaten alive a sibling the top twenty five or crew. Put them in a game and let them get eaten alive. Put cohen holloway. That's your roster man. that's your lester team. That's your squad for the future. You have a whole bunch of freshman to sophomore in the rest of seniors to violate doing shit. jalen harris. Give him some time to marco van. Okay i get it but man. Don't why you play those guys. Thirty eight thirty five minutes at the expense of kobe. Clark at the expense of a colin solloway at the expense of tj burger. I i don't know man you know i don't. I'm not a coach at great probably said oh you told you now okay. Good so look i. I don't know if it's your team you're in the practices you've had fifteen years of experience in the nba. You know much more about this team than do. It's just frustration. Talking is in an quite sure that you're more frustrated than i am saying with the team. At least hope team is so. You're doing a lot more to try to fix this problem. You're taking these issues in these situations home with you and you look. You're stressing out on this a lot. More than i am no matter how bad you get. I'm still going to be doing what i'm doing. This could cost you your job. So i get it i get it.
