If you're not familiar with who jason is. Let me fill you in. So jason as you heard in the intro. He is an author of two fantastic books. By the way jason speaker. He's been a media professional for over twenty years. He was a producer on. Espn excuse me emmy award winning producer. Which and your award is where. Because i don't see it behind you there it's on the mantle downstairs to show everybody of course you've got to display of emmy. Don't you watch us me if i had one. It's doubt a above the fireplace in the living room. That's where nice nice all right place of prominence like that like that's right all right and so he also mentioned that he is a podcast host as well. He's the host of sports spectrum podcast and on that particular podcast you interview athletes and coaches and entertainers personalities. But give us you. It's a bit of a twist. Have just anybody on your show us right now. We could have every athlete. That's available but we're a little more selective. I think because the content that we produce is very don't call it niche content niche content. However you pronounce that word but we our goal is to glorify god and all that we do with sports spectrum and so the conversations that we have intersex sports faith and so if somebody is on our show you can you can guarantee that. Their faith is important in in their lives in an important part of their lives. So that's kind of what distinguishes us i think from a place like espn or bleacher. Report or fox is that we are very in I guess Intentional about talking about these players. These athletes coaches whoever. We have on about their faith. In jesus gotcha okay. And that's actually a nice little segue into something. I wanted to talk about briefly for you listeners..

"That's a new direction for all of us. I think that we could really take forward steps towards because I always for many years with my relationship with my father thought it was about what he had done to me. That what he was going through, I never cared about what he was going. Through I cared about him getting there so that our relationship would be better in that I would not have to deal with what he was doing to me, so it was about me and with empathy. It's changed, and now I'm looking at him from his perspective in thinking man, this man was suffering in a lot of pain for forty plus years, and when I saw it from his perspective and started to have that empathy, it changed everything, and so on my thinking, here is a new direction for all of us would be to just have a little more empathy, and I know we've been talking about forgiveness for an hour, but the idea of empathy for me led me to be able to forgive my father, and so I would say, let's let's be more empathetic, and let's look towards living a life of empathy wherever it takes us. I love that. His name is Jason. Romano, books called live to forgive by the way he's going to new book coming that justice come out come out, called the uniform of leadership, please.

So they have one child, my dad, and so those three grand for them like their third, second, third and fourth. and. We didn't appreciate that when we were little because we were just happy to.

In their later years to take care of us to get US whatever we wanted new when I went to college, my grandmother. Grandfather paid basically for my first semester edge first year college, so they they were more generous than any two people I've ever known and not just generous with purchasing him buying, but with their time. I think they saw their son my dad. Betty got a really bad path, and so they sponsor that my dad wasn't there for us. They felt responsible to pick up slack and they picked up the slack quite a bit. I'm grateful for them. There might know there are two of my favorite people ever my grandfather. It's my heat, wrote the greatest man I've ever known, and we miss them, but we I remember.

Forgive moving forward when those who love. Those we love hurt us and. The book is an upstanding read. You need to pick it up. It's I'm just telling you. It's if not for yourself. Do it for a friend so that you can learn more about. Really, the struggles that so many people through so many of us go through when we're dealing with people, you know abusive situations. It's going to really give you a lot of insight. I promise you. One, of the things that you said is dad's alcoholism pulled me deeper into two realities, you said an external reality, the unresolved issues in my dad's life and the problems they caused for those he loved which I couldn't control and then an internal reality, the unresolved issues in my own life and the problems they were causing for me which I could begin to knowledge and work through talk talk about those two realities. I. I would even add a third reality which wasn't in the book, but the reality of. My mom and my my grandparents, but my mom, allowing us to have a normal childhood, inexperienced things right and my grandmother to grab just taking us to the movies taking us to the toy store taking us to dinner like just normal things that could get kids get to do going out and playing with your friends going in the backyard of my grandparents house and having epic basketball battles with my brothers. You know that was sort of regular reality that I remember as of the good side of growing up as a kid. And then there was the dad reality towards the bad side of the sort of life that we were living, but the internal reality. What didn't really take shape until I recognized fourteen, fifteen sixteen, and we can all go back to those years and as we're starting to mature and get a little older and start to understand things differently than when we were little kids. When I really I tell people all the time, my relationship with my dad. But during those years was very confusing. And I, it's the first time I tell the story in the book of getting. Ready to go to a mets game with him on the mets fan, cardinals fan, take a bus trip down. This is probably when I was fourteen fifteen. We were getting ready to go and he shows up drunk and. Four, so it wasn't even the morning of and I had such anger towards him. I I really lashed out at him. and. For Myself, play the victim and to help. ME. How could you let me down? We have a game to go to hear. This was supposed to be our moment our time together. Just you and me. And in you, come home drunk and I remember hiding myself in going into the bathroom, locking the door. And just kind of creating this barrier. that was.

We all have a spirit inside of us. You'll hear people talk about you know. That we've got the spirit that lives inside of us that drives us, or that connects US peacefully or connects us with joy and happiness joy. Under the difference.

I have written you i. have told you a big Fan I am. The the book broke me down. I'm going to be really be honest about that. There was a point I. Dictate the Book Out Loud when I do the notes of the book. And there's a there's a point where on dictating the book out loud. Because my typing quite frankly slower than dictation and I'm reading these things out loud, and I'm finding tears rolling down my eyes, and of course you do, is you. Of course you have to go head? Poke me right in the chest and go, so what's hurting inside you? Big Fella and I'm like. Wow I. Wasn't ready for that, but it is a great book. It is a book. That I believe.

"'cause yeah like you said it's it's you don't have to agree with everybody but we were still called to love them and to be that light. So that's that's really good absolutely and by the way live to forgive is a pretty good book too. I hear so that that one too. This is great. Yeah I should have started with that right. How does an author not name his own book trying to name other books live again? I'm not check that own up also so said the last one What's your favorite Bible? Verse or quote you can pick one. Can I give you. You can all right so I'll give you a Bible verse in a quote so the Bible verse. It's my life verse. It's in proverbs. Three five and six proverbs chapter three versus five and six. And it simply says trust in the Lord with all of your heart and Lena on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Jim and he will make your path straight. So there's two levels to that verse trusting in the Lord with all of your heart and leaning on your own understanding so God wants us to trust him mm-hmm he wants us to trust him fully with everything we got and not lean on what we think we're supposed to do that. Goes back to the feelings thing Kalina on your own understanding and the second part is I guess what I would say that the launch part the walk part in all your ways acknowledge him him. That means God's with me wherever I go. He's with me. Whatever I'm doing I used to think? ESPN was separate for my faith that that was just my job but proverbs autumn's three six says in all your ways acknowledge him so that means take take the Lord with you wherever you go in the last part which I love which I've seen fully fully develop in my life is he will make your path straight now. The Path from a human perspective often is anything but straight but in God's eyes that straight path is his plan for us. We never really know that until we look back so that verse is a big one for me and then I quote real quick. Is I've been saying this quote a lot it's from CS Lewis and He says it's about forgiveness. I think and he said forgiveness is a everybody agrees. That forgiveness is a beautiful idea until we have to practice it and that is the idea of not just from forgiveness forgiveness perspective but from a life life perspective that we look at other people's stories journeys lives lived and we say that's wonderful. That's awesome but what I actually have to implement that and do the work myself. That's when the hard part begins and so if you're looking at somebody's journey to a job and you see that and you're like you know what I could do that I would love to do that. Looks like a beautiful thing and I have to practice it and put in the work and put in everything to get to where you're trying to get to. That's where the weeds are pulled from the people people just aren't cut out for that And in from a forgiveness perspective you know we all agree. That forgiveness is awesome when we see other people forgiving when we hear stories as a forgiveness but when we have to implement that in our own lives you know often that's where it gets really messy muddy because people will say but you don't know what I've been through but you don't know the hurt that this person has caused me and it's a hard thing to practice and implement things that we know are good and and and right and from afar seem really good and perfect and implementing. Those things can be really really difficult so I love that quote. It's been what I've been saying different speaking engagements for probably the last two years and it's one that sticks out to me. Yeah that's really good and I'm actually a teaching a marriage class right now on Sunday mornings in our Bible Study Glasson Lot of times what I'll say is we all see these perfect marriages in Phnom kind of sidetracking. But let's see these marriages in there so great and I I want that marriage and I tell them the class I say well it takes work. You know we can't just wish a good marriage or good relationship with their kids or whatever it is it everything we do it takes work it takes sacrifice and you know we. We have to put in the effort. Does yeah it's hard. It's very very hard and it takes work and you're only going to get what you get out what you put into it. You know you reap what you so. That's all right and you really if you're going going to try and do great things and accomplish things and even in your relationship with God like if you if you don't you're going to get out put in right. God doesn't go anywhere. We're the ones that drift in. Everybody thinks where did you go. God still there were the ones that went and drifted. But we're GONNA get out our relationship but we put into it you know and if there if we're not putting a lot into our relationship relationship with God and how can we expect him to really Respond in crazy crazy ways in in even deeper ways with us if we're not putting that effort in an on our side again it's not about effort in terms of getting to heaven in my opinion it's about grace and got his done but you know relationship is a two ways talking about a relationship with God a relationship with people. It doesn't just work. It's not a one way street relationships just not. That's when really it's in marriages. Two new marriages are one way streets. You'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA eventually hit a dead end in. That's when bad things happen. Yeah absolutely fully agree with everything you said for sure well. So what's the best way for the audience to connect with you probably social media or my website so you mentioned my website earlier earlier. Gabe it's it's simply my name. Jason Romano Dot Com and you can hit the contact button on there and if you write something it comes directly to me. There's nobody else. Let's reading or looking at it so you can reach me that way and you can also tweet at me or go to instagram. My DM's or are open. You can reach out to me whenever however you'd like I am. I'm pretty much at ninety. Nine percent response success rate and. That's not to Brag. That's just because I believe in responding to people when they reach out to you so so yes if they see or hear want to reach out for any reason in fact that's how you and I connected. He reached out. I responded and that's that's kind of how I try to do things things You know I don't believe in on just too busy. Sorry you're everybody's busy so when somebody takes time to reach out to you at least reach back out and acknowledged that they reached out to you. We can't always help. But you can at least be courteous. Yeah that's Great Yes oh to the listeners. Yet reach out and say hi to Jason for sure Well before we say goodbye if you could give the audience just in a few sentences Some parting words of advice parting words of advice Well I already gave my Bible verse which is often the advice I give which is seek first the Kingdom of God or trust in the Lord with all of your heart and all your ways acknowledge knowledgeable direct your path. I think I would I would say is the best advice that I could give to. People is to is to passionately. Love Kevin Serve others and I know this is kind of repeating everything that I've said But it's sort of ties. It back up in a bow is to passionately love and serve others. Love Love God and love others but to serve others to look at ways that you can make an impact small or big you know. I believe if you see a homeless person in your heart automatically gets pardoned in like That person's probably GONNA go buy a bunch of cigarettes or whatever Searched at heart a little bit and look at that person who might be standing out there. Because he's in a bad spot and have empathy. Empathy is is the game changer. I believe in life right now. Maybe that's the best advice is Seek others and look at others with an empathetic heart. Because we're all going through something that everyone else can't see you know and You know anxiety and depression are sort of. I don't WANNA call buzzwords. Put there there. There is something that's really come to the forefront a lot lately for a lot of people and and Unfortunately a lot of people up you know going down at dark path and not being able to come back and I believe if we could have empathy towards others. It would be such a giant game changer whether it's leadership in in politics in Washington whether it's in church leadership whether it's in businesses having empathy and seeing others from their perspective. What they might be going through when we do that I believe it opens up opportunities to really? We love others in a way that we couldn't otherwise so seek people with an empathetic car. That's what I believe that's amazing. That's great advice. Well Jason. We've come the end at Spin. Truly a.

"Is it. You'll be wanting to do good wanting to serve in the community loves the Lord he's on the Saints Saints are really good right now and he's playing really good football. That'll do pretty well. My guess is if If people find out about the interview but then you know I have interviews with other people that you haven't heard of the people who are like assistant coaches on division two basketball teams or recently we had a a a mom on who lost her son to cancer But there was a connection election unique connection there because she was a woman of Faith and because her dad was a coach in her father in law was a coach at Michigan and end coach football there and so the intersection of sports. Faith doesn't always need to be a ton of sports. It could just be a little connection of sports but the faith ass back. ACT The story aspect. Those are the ones that stand out to me and Whenever we can get one of those They're my favorites. Because they're the ones that most people listening can relate to. We've all been through tragedy on some level. We've all had to walk through you know Valley's at shadows of death as they you say in difficult times and difficult seasons and what is trusting. God look like through that and when we can get to the core of the heart of those type of you've stories that's when the connections happen that's when I get most excited because that's where God to me. Does his best work now. Football players can have have those stories as well because they're human beings and in baseball players to and hockey players and basketball players at all these athletes that we've interviewed on the show. But when you get somebody buddy you haven't heard of but you connect with. That's when to me that's like the everyday story and that the ones that I really enjoy most absolutely and those are going to help other people Whether they know them or not so correct. Yeah exactly great so you wrote a book Libro. You've written two books books. One soon one of them is called live to forgive. Could you tell me a little bit till the audience a little bit about about that. Yeah so when I was in this process of thinking about leaving. ESPN two thousand sixteen And by the way I didn't mention this earlier but it was probably in my favorite year of working at. ESPN was the year that I thought I was leaving because I got to work on Mike and Mike in the morning and be part of a really great show on a great team of people that was awesome but somewhere along the lines in summer of Twenty Sixteen I got a phone call from buddy you know in that process of networking and meeting meeting different people in the faith world and his name is Caleb Calton back he is a former pastor. He is an author as well and he wrote an amazing book called Messy Grace and Kayla. I had connected on social media and I just said Hey Mandy have like twenty minutes on the phone and we can talk and it was early summer of twenty sixteen and I was telling him kind of some of the things that I was thinking about with leaving. ESPN and just praying. That God would open up a door and show me what to do and then he asked me what else is on. My heart was a weird question and I said I really don't know I said the story of my dad has been one that I've been sharing a lot. You know lately with different people whether it's speaking or even just talking like you and I are talking gave and and it was one of those things where I share the story with Caleb and he looked very I didn't look at me but he he heard any said you gotta you gotTa write a book here Buddy and I laughed at him loudly in the parking lot at ESPN. I said I have zero interest in writing a book. Caleb there's no way this how don't even know how to write a book and I'm not a good writer I just no. I'm not I said I'm going to okay the writer but I'm not a book writer to me. If you write a book you need to be great at writing. And I've learned that that's not always the case when I look back now but you need to okay great and that was my thought and he said no man your story forgiving your father for all the things that he had done to you. Growing up with an Alcoholic Dad You know the the real difficult moments difficult times like that story that people can relate to and people need to hear and so oh after we hung up the phone he connected me with the literary agent and I just talked to this guy and that began the process of moving Forward with this book live to forgive and the book is about It's a it's an. It's about seventy percent narrative thirty percent application in the book. Is The story the narrative side of my journey through life with an alcoholic father that was verbally abusive that ruined his his own. Life and in many ways ruined the life of his family in separation with with his three boys myself and my two brothers Couple of divorced a couple of broken marriages and divorces Ruined relationships with his own family with his own parents with his own The cousins and uncles and aunts like lots of bad things losing his job so he had a really tough difficult life and after becoming make a Christian in two thousand one. I started to try and learn about forgiveness but I really didn't know what that meant in my own life. I thought yeah. Forgiveness is beautiful thing until I actually have to kind of put it into Practice for myself and I couldn't do it. I couldn't forgive my dad for the pain he had caused me. And my brothers and eventually time came in twenty thirteen where my dad was at his lowest point and I was able to kind of eventually forgive him and tell him that that I have forgiven him and begin a process of forgiveness so I learn learn about learned about forgiveness quite a bit over those three or four years there and And that's where the book idea came from and we put a proposal together and A publisher named core media out of Charlotte North Carolina. Got A hold of. It picked it up pretty quickly. I had a CO author named Stephen Copeland who helped me write the book and Like I said he's a great writer so it was it was wonderful to have him as a quote unquote great writer helping me. Tell the story and The book released in January very of two thousand eighteen In the process of this began in September of two thousand sixteen so it really moved quickly. Mace that. It might not sound like that's a quick amount of time I am but it really is in the book World Book books usually take two to three years so to write to put together to edit to to have it go from the beginning of your audion concept to the time when you're actually holding a book in your hand and we did this in a year and a half and everything moves so quickly in the process of writing this book and editing I had had left. ESPN so that was happening as well.

When you work with publisher you submit a manuscript and then they harvard like a you know? I don't know like a Thanksgiving Turkey. And they go through it and Sunday like a fine tooth comb. They're running right through the whole thing and trying to to try to make it the best that they can do because they have an investment in this book as well and so it's in that process process literally as you and I are talking right. Now is editing process but the covers out And that's something that they put together. The title is obviously out the uniform of leadership. And we're we're wrapping this thing up pretty soon here. I would imagine by the end of the year. We're really going to be looking at okay.

ESPN I really wanted to Kinda share stories of my time. Positive stories certainly not negative one of my time working at ESPN. So what did that look like.

"Shooting centerfield today Cameron center field. But let me introduce our guest here. Okay. Todd Hollandsworth was nationally rookie of the year in nineteen ninety six. He won a World Series with the Marlins this correct. He had a twelve year career major league baseball. And yet the highlight of his career was being a member of the nineteen Eighty-one cherry hill athlete at land little league champion people's banks. What did I have that correct? I think you do out, right. Yes. There you go. So you let me get destroyed because people people around here know, your major league career, they saw you play ball, some of them know that you grew. Grew up locally, and you were friends with on David growing up best of friends. I mean, that's what we were we grew up together. I mean many of the stories I tell on our air in Miami. You know my career everything kind of goes back to little league where it all starts for us. You know, we kind of kid each other, you know about what, you know, our kids are kind of going through what my sons are going through as far as baseball today. We when we were growing up, we had little league. We stayed together we played locally and and we learned this game locally. So we share that the love affair that we have with the game of baseball together. I'm not sure you're wear that rate, injures jersey local icon. I am. Okay. Good. Well, I'm glad to hear that. And from what I understand driving in that old station. Wagon back in the early eighties rate kind of imparted in you. Some of the tips that made you into the pro yours effort is absolutely look where I'm sitting I'm sitting next to him in booth. Listen, I paid attention. There's no doubt about it. This is about as smart as you're going to get when it comes to Philadelphia sports. And I listen, I good listener, drove carpool post-game cheese steaks, all the time all the time, we would do it all. And I think that's you know, I, I think back to my memories in in, you know, growing up here in cherry hill. And I like I said, I talked about it quite often on our air. I mean just being here and even watching the Phillies I talked to some of the guys on our team we're kind of local kids, and I think we, we have a kid who just went the other days that gallon and he said he grew up a cardinal fan. And I said, I don't know how you grew up in jersey, and you're not a Phillies fan. And I said, here's the thing. Okay. Well, I'll give you a pass. Do you hate the Cowboys and he said, yes? I said, okay. You clearly are from the Philadelphia area because you may not be an eagles fan, but you gotta know date the Cowboys while I was I told you before we went on the air today, the story about my son, David, and Todd were the two eight year olds that got picked for that team was Tim vulgar kids, obviously nine ten eleven year olds by the coach pick, two eight year-olds. And it was Todd Davis with the two littlest guys in at the end of the bench. But my mother and father came up from Florida to stay with us for a week. And so David headed game. So we went over to watch the game. And this is this sounds hypocrisy. But I'm telling you, it is a true story. My father sitting in the bleachers next to me, and we're watching the game and Todd comes up and even then as an eight year old he had a sweet left handed swing. He really did. And he comes up and I at bad. He hits a ball in the gap and really ropes it and the gap is eight year old and my father says to me that kid's gonna play in the big league someday. My father said when when Todd. Eight years old. And the funny thing is my father then took ownership of Todd's career moving forward. So Todd actually does get to the big leagues. He started following him everyday in the box scores that he would call me and say before I even a chance to look. Hey, Hollandsworth us three for four last night. So. You had a you didn't even realize it. But you had a huge fan of my father because he felt like he scouted you long before was Angeles. Dodgers do. And, and, and listen. I I'm so grateful for every fan that I have. I mean my, my childhood was so unique in that I spent every waking moment in jersey up until the day I moved away in your so I spent my high school years out, west actually, but coming back here that season those years when we and I would David two together were eight-year-olds on that team in growing up for me really led me to the big leagues. I mean it made me hungry for more because we were the smallest guys on the field. We, we probably were a little bit more talented than the other eight year olds and nine year olds. But we were playing with older guys, and it was a challenge for both of us. So we became really, really close because of that experience together with that happening. I was always even after I left Hungary to play with the older guys. I didn't want to be challenged by guys. It wasn't good enough for me to just be, you know, beating the kids or. Competing with the kids in my age group. I wanted to beat the kids that were older. And I'm sure David probably tell you the same thing I've seen David didn't play hockey and pretty good. It's good ball players hockey player. Fantastic. He was our first baseman. I, I mean, listen, we loved, I mean, I was just last year just actually had come across some video of championship game that we had, I think it was for my mother who lives out west now and has for many, many years. And she sent me some video of arch of a championship game. And he was our first basement, and I was left handed shortstop. So I mean it's, it's what we were doing. And and you know there were winning a championship, but it was interesting because we were the young guys then we became the old guys, but we've been doing it for so long. And we got to that championship game. I think for most of us, we were like it was a walk in the park, we'd done this so many times together tot. He was an awesome football player. I'm a great football player, and it's a shame because after halfway through freshman year he moves out west. Right. So he played freshman football and he was the quarterback also Arizona state. Right. That's where it ultimately was going to be. But it didn't, you know didn't go that way ended up going to the dodgers. So first of all, you don't remember this, I've actually met you once before you came to wing bowl one year. Right. Didn't you in Philadelphia? Maybe I think you did w table and I mentioned was very early in the morning, and one of us might have been drunk anyway. Interesting aspect of your career that Ray told me you were once traded forgave Kappler. Yeah, that's absolutely correct. There's no doubt about it. I don't even Texas trade. I believe I was going from t I was going from Colorado Texas gave was going from Texas to Colorado. That's right, right around two thousand and two. In fact, you're right. I. It's so funny that you mentioned that I've spoken with Gabe and talked to gave all we've never even mentioned it. And you just brought that up. Let me find here. It is. You were traded from the Rockies with Dennis raise. Yeah. To the Rangers, forgave Kappler Jason Romano, and cash they go well, there you go to give the cash there. So you know that was. That was his first that was his first movie in the American League his career up to that point had been purely in the National League. Dodgers in Iraqis. Got traded to Texas. I was looking up a little bit of this, because a lot of Todd's career I kind of remembered because I actually kind of like him as well. But I saw that one footnote. I said, oh, that's that is very interesting. The gape capital was part of one of the traits, you were involved with top people here. Don't follow the Marlins all that closely to their few things I want to ask you about everybody here. Of course remembers whore hail farro who got dealt to the Marlins with the, the young pitcher, six Sanchez before the season for, you know, Mutoko. I know how far we've been hurt with a concussion, but at just happened. Yeah. How's he been doing? He's been doing pretty good. I I mean it was in the same game. It was in Saint Louis just before we arrived into Philly a couple of days ago was hit on a back. Swing for Marcella zone. Go figure that Marcel zoo, a former Marlins though anyway got him on the back of the head. He also took a foul tip to the mask, and my understanding was, it was a mild concussion. We're really hoping he'll be back in seven days. But, you know in this day and age, you have to just Oltra ultra ultra cautious and careful with these guys with the contact and the exit velocity. And I'll tell you the backswing was probably at least in my opinion much worse than the foul tip. But both happened in the same game about two two innings apart. So just to be safe put him in that position. But he's been playing great for us. He said he's had a very, very good run. I know JT's been great here as well. It certainly makes some sense. You know from our perspective Jorges is done everything that's been asked of him in. We're a franchise that's growing trying to block. Awesome in bloom, and get moving in the right direction. And I think Jorges hey, fit bus in that he was the younger guy, even around here, and with the expectations being what they are in Philadelphia they've always been, but I think this is supposed to be a special year. Harper comes on board expectations are high. You still got Jake Arrieta and the group in the rotation. We thought that, hey, over the last twenty right? I understood. But I don't think expectations have gone downhill, regardless a formats on the field talk to our callers. They'll tell you, otherwise. The other guy trade was six no Sanchez. He's now in AA. I know you cover the major league team and don't know what you get to see her here. But I was looking at up. He's thrown fifty one innings this season fifty strikeouts nine walks. That's a great ratio anywhere. Six does done a very nice job. He got off to a little bit of a slow start in spring training. I think the organization was just alter cautious with him kind of slow stepped it to to begin the season. And he's often running now. He's doing a good job, you know, Todd you mentioned he was part of a world champion with them. Marlins and the World Series that Todd played in and the game that they clinched it game six of that World Series were both stark that was the one hundred World Series. So it was a big deal. And I don't even know if you realize this. But when you closed out the Yankees game six at Yankee Stadium. That was the one hundredth World Series game played in Yankee Stadium. Wow. No. I did not know the last old Yankee Stadium closed. The big house in the one hundred World Series. Game played there in the one hundred World Series. Well, listen. I try not to bring that up, too. Often my boss, Derek Jeter, so he does not. He he's fine with talking about all the great stuff. But I'm good with that, too. But he also has he's still, he's so competitive that even when you think on those things or even bring them up, just kind of gives you a little look like yet. Don't hit me there. That's not what I want to talk about. But it, it certainly wasn't exciting run that oh three group. Listen, we were going. Hey we're the wildcard team..

So I promise you this case keenum is finally reacting to John Elway and the Broncos trading for Joe flacco believe you me, he was as blindsided as the rest of the NFL and its fans, but he did at least get a heads up phone call from Elway before the news broke. Great conversation. So you know, what she didn't have to do. And I appreciate that. Definitely definitely shocked. It was it was a surprise for us. I think probably for the first day or so that's kind of what it was. But. For us. We're definitely disappointed. It's not something. We wanted wanted to happen.

So again, I'm in Pittsburgh at ninety three seven the fan hosting my show on the road here and the crew just came to introduce themselves. It was great. I got to meet Colin, and Chris and Jen and their producer match, and they came with a chip and dip contraption. Okay. This thing is John enormous like think about ultimate frisbee that one of those huge discs. This this particular. So it's big round plate in the middle. It has a little bowl where you would put the dip right or the guac Ord, mango, salsa, whatever it is at its decorated the top of the container has the Steelers logo and then the top of the little bowl has its own cover. And so it's also got the Steelers logo. And so now I want football season to be here. So that when I'm watching twelve hours of football. I don't have to get up to go get the chips and the salsa lime chips and mango salsa. I'm coming for you with my new Steelers chip and dip plate us. So thank you guys.

But it's good to meet you guys in person for sure one of my favorite things about taking the show on the road is the people that I get a chance to meet. And so I may talk to you or hear from you on Twitter social media or in the case of a lot of our radio affiliates. Their individual hosts will come on the show at times, but to be able to shake hands and make eye contact and have a conversation in person is completely different. So as awesome to be at the arena on Thursday night and meet Phil who is superfan. He says he's he listens to the show all the time. He was an usher on the media level. And then Paul who told me to sh- that he wouldn't make me pay for my medium meal, but he was a big fan of the show as well. And so the the dinner was on him.

"jason romano" Discussed on WBT Charlotte News Talk
"News talk eleven ten ninety nine three WBZ welcome back to. This show and some of. You may recognize that tune from mercy me and. Martin lard one of the singers former see me. Is one of the ones who endorse Jason romano's book live to forgive Jason is my guest today, there's that voice Just so thankful Jason you're. With me today talking about your pilgrimage of forgiveness about your dad in his alcoholism you're talking about the steps. You went through to help. Free your heart From your bitterness toward him and let's talk, about the third step recovered the first two real quickly then go to number three yeah so, the first two steps were, feeling the pain acknowledging what's happening in. In in this situation evaluating the trauma and allowing yourself to create boundaries and recognizing what's happening in in your life not trying to suppress it but to acknowledge that. It's very valuable. And, then the third step, which we've got to talk about is transforming the. Wounds transformation is, is such a powerful word because it's really what takes place for us When we enter, into a relationship, with, Jesus Christ it's transforming our hearts transforming our lives bible talks about you know being. Conformed not being competitive is being transformed by the renewing of our minds so with the wound has taken place. In the reason that we struggle with forgiving someone. We, need to transform that world it's a process for. Conversion that kind of takes place and studying that course towards healing and forgiveness and for myself the. Transforming. Began when I started walking with the Lord but, again as I told you forgiveness is a, process and even forgetting my dad it took me gosh twelve years after I became a Christian, until I was finally able, to forgive him but that's really what. It's about is transforming that wound from a place of pain to a place of purpose so that's the third step go into the fourth yeah please do go ahead The fourth, step is literally what, the books called lifted forgive it's forgiving the abuser, it's kind of, obvious, step but that's really the place where you have to kind of finally combat climactic. Moment right where everything changes and you say you know what I forgive you for me what I forgave my. Father it was finally a place where I recognize. That, me Jason Romano there Dan father still father of my daughter the husband follower of Jesus was no different than my dad in the, eyes Jesus was and how he viewed us, you're saying is as great as his my son, was his greatest season is as great it's his because I was used, to, have my dad on a level towards the bottom of of what he was going through what I looked, at my life is this guy worked, at ESPN and had a wife who is a beautiful wife, and we had a nice house with cars and I. Have my daughter and everything looks great but then I looked at through, the lens of Christ and I realized, wait, I'm wretched center and as messed up in in terms of the same that I commit as. My. Dad the one that. Tap when that happened I, have something that I'd never have for my dad before which was empathy seeing it from? His point of view and that's, when I was? Finally able to go to that fourth step which was. Forgiving the news that's powerful Jason and somebody once said that forgiveness is Is giving up your. Right for the other person to hurt, as much as they've hurt you and, I'm always liked that because when you realize that. You are as great as center as the other person is how can you hope the other person will hurt like you've heard. You realize you deserve the punishment just like they do and you give up your right to retaliate you refuse to, operate in revenge and that sounds like where, you automatically ended up completely I mean CS Lewis, has this great quote there's to be a Christian means to forgive the, inexcusable, because God has forgiven inexcusable you and that includes myself you everybody listening that's what's happened here where we, ask for Christ into our hearts and, we ask for forgiveness of our says he's forgiving inexcusable and, us so we're asking for that to become Christ like. For that new nature to enter in us and we have to exude, the way that he is for giving, us, that unto others forgive as we forgive You know and, that's what I finally was able to come to a place where the person that had to change was me not my dad I had, to forgive with, me I didn't have to have my dad it or do anything different to earn that forgiveness it was something that. I was supposed to do again it was a process but that was where we ended up Reno Jason I have two other quick insights from my years of pastoral? Ministry in my own struggles in life with having to forgive one is, that you leave revenge to God Romans twelve. Nineteen that we don't return evil. With evil but evil with good and as you give. It to, God you trust him that he's, the one who's able to take care of it and that releases it within your heart, the second thing that, I've really learned. Is that as you learn to share in the sufferings of Christ, Jesus absorbed the pain and punishment for my, sin on the cross even. Though he didn't deserve that sometimes we have, to absorb the pain of other people's behavior even, though we don't deserve it because that's what Jesus did in his love operating within us, allows us to share Oh sufferings and that helps, ultimately to set us free as well It really does and it's such a great thing and. And remembering to forgiveness must be granted before it can be, felt I write down, a lot, because we need to grant forgiveness but it's a process you know, you hear trust the process a lot sports with certain, sports teams and that's really what it is the process of forgiveness something that we, start by granting, and then we enter into a place, of really I don't know just. Understanding that, it is a process. Not something that takes place instantly it's. A it's a daily walk almost like a daily dying to yourself like Christ caused us to do a daily process of forgiving the person who sort of the book. Is live. To forgive moving forward from those, who have hurt us Jason Romano my guest today, is the. Author Jason is soon people can get the book online Yes they can get an Amazon.

To have Jason join us today to talk about his life and his present ministry Jason. Thanks for joining me David thank you for having me it's an honor to. Be on with you will Jason let's talk about your past who you are what's made you who you are, begin, with your early days Yeah so I grew up in upstate New York little. Town called Ravina New York outside of Albany. The capital of New York state and grew up you know I guess a normal kid in the eyes. Of what kids get to do parents were divorced. When I was six years old so I never really remember having. A mom and dad together in the home but sports was a big part of my life I certainly just normal intricacies of being a child. And, growing up my mom was with Iraq and keeping us sort. Of, on the straight narrow and allowing us, to experience the things that kids, get to experience certainly sports was at the, center of. That played sports loved watching sports look talking about sports with, my friend collecting baseball cards and football cards and kind of keeping my own little notebooks which stat so I was I was a, sports nerd from early on and that's kind of. What really kind of defined me if, you ask, anybody that knew me. A. Young age sports was the thing and you'll have to brothers that are both younger so I. Grew up as older brother oldest brother three and, just enjoy Loyd Mike my, time as a kid I think you know what. There was always this sort of boy, if you, will, that was there Certainly with a broken, relationship that, I have with my father, I didn't really start to discover that and know that until I was older but as a kid you know you knew it. Was there especially I look back and think about times as a kid and doing so many things that I got to, do experience, in my dad was either not around or if he was it was usually in a very. Unhealthy situation where he was probably you know. Drinking or or acting in a way that was not conducive to the, way fathers should act but sports is always the center of that and that's. What led me to college to study sports broadcasting and journalism and then eventually getting. A, job in the media working in local radio. Core I took a. Job at ESPN in two thousand and work, there for many years yeah. You were there at ESPN during its heyday it's absolute incredible growth, talk about that, for a second Yeah yes PF. When, I got there it was July eighteenth of. Two thousand you never. Forget your first day that's right And I worked there for almost seventeen, years and just the evolution. Of the place from the time I got there not just from a standpoint of the place build the amount. Of buildings they've increased, growth as, far as people in the growth as far as just the immense landscaping of the place you know it was. I think five buildings when I got ESPN, left it was about eighteen or twenty just campus the evolution of its growth it, was really, popular when I got there but it was mostly just the sports radio in. Sports television entity with the, web you, know starting to infiltrate into place into the lexicon of the way people consume, content but now when I laughed I mean I left my last job at ESPN was social media and digital media director. So you can see the evolution, because, social, media didn't even exist when, I started working there and then suddenly. It was it was a job. That I I was doing it. Grew immensely the popularity of so many of the shows and the personalities, that I worked with their it became part of people's daily DNA of what they. Were consuming when when people think, sports you know especially where to go with sports ESPN's the places we think about and that was that was evident I think in the work that I was, doing and seeing because I. Worked on the radio side the television side and then the social media digital media side you saw you know. You saw the effect, it was, having the amount of people that it was reaching it was it was quite incredible yeah bet it was my. Guess is Jason Romano Jason did work with, the SPN but he has a much more important work right now and Jason I, want to, give time for you to talk about that when we come back out of. The break working for sports, spectrum right, now interviewing Christian athletes all over the country and what's amazing to me is, you have been given a new ministry calling this a part of your pilgrimage that's outlined in your book live to forgive. And that's what I wanna talk Talk about today the very, pain you went through with your father. But the extraordinary opportunity that God gave you through his grace to a, new ministry calling I'm David Chadwick this is news talk eleven ten ninety nine three. WBZ t we'll be right back.
