"What is going on? It is Tuesday and. New thing it's called a radio tinder and John. Let's. Let's play the opening for it. Smooth all right, so we will bring up a topic and John to neither John and I can either swipe. In skipping altogether or swiped right and talk about it. So. I will start I hear John. There are six million planets like earth. Swipe left or swipe right. Swipe left I. Don't care how many planets there are. What else you got is Russell Crowe enough to get people back into movie theaters. Swipe right I want to talk about this there Russell Crowe has got a brand new movie that will open theaters on July the tenth it'll be the first major film released since the pandemic hit. It's called unhinged in. It is described as a road range. Road rage thriller about a guy with a very bad temper, which actually sounds a little bit like Russell Crowe is this enough to get people to come back into theaters, or will people wait for Christopher Nolan's Tenet on July thirty first. Let me start by saying that I mentioned that a couple of months ago I watched Cinderella man. Yes, which is one ron. Howard directed it. It's about. Jim Braddock who is a boxing champion in the nineteen. Twenties, and thirties. Russell Crowe is so good in it. And the movie is so good that I think it's one of the most underrated sports music all time then Mace like a week and a half ago. Yep You know me Broadway John. I watched the movie Les Miserables Stop It. You did not want. Grow is so unwatchable bad. In Les Miserables and is such a bad singer. That I said this is the end for Russell Crowe. His apex has now come and gone. I, no longer think he can open a movie so I think people are going to wait for Christopher Nolan simply based on me watching les miserables. What do you think completely agree with you? I don't think Russell. Crowe sells tickets anymore I. Don't think this movie is going to work. I. Think it's too soon. I think people are more likely ready to go back into a movie theater at at a reduced capacity on July, thirty first than they are in July, the tenth, so I am calling this a flop. To you. All Right Mace our good friend Mike Trudell. is in a twitter battle with clippers, fans and Lou Williams Swipe left or swipe, right swipe and swipe right. I want to hear about that. Okay, so trudell made what you keep in mind that Mike like me works for the Lakers. Yes, he is a very big fan of Alex. Caruso. Mike and I also know Lou Williams, who played for the Lakers in his AAC. Great Guy lose lose a great guy, so Mike made the observation on one of his many platforms that personally in his personal opinion, he would rather have Alex Caruso. Then Lou Williams Reason being according to Mike, Caruso is a more complete player. He does everything he rebounds. He scores. He plays defense. He hustles Lou does one thing extraordinarily well? He scores so clipper fans got all over Trudell and somehow Lou. Heard about it okay, and simply tweeted this at two Oh three in the morning. At My trudell thanks I needed that. With a happy face with sunglasses on so a couple of questions here first of all. Is trudell right. Would you rather have? Alex crusoe or Lou Williams Look I love Alex Caruso, but I would rather have Lou Williams. Six Man of the year Lou! Williams Guy Gimme six man of the year. Trudeau's Guy I love Trudell. He's wrong about this Lou is. He's unguarded. You can't guard that dude when he gets going. He's a wonderful player and I love Alex To. Scrape a showcase second question. Lose. Just plan here, right? This doesn't give him motivation in any way, does it? No, a can't possibly give a motivation I mean. I don't know it would give Michael Jordan motivated. Lou has that Tim lose too good of a guy? Right where he writes every single grudge against every single person. He's not that guy, so he's right flew. Flew jumped into it. I am although I like that he did I. Think I did yeah I do I. Think it's a fun little exchange and I know factored. L. Thinks the world of him. So I think they're just two guys that know each other kind of going back and forth, but the clipper fans are all up in arms the Clip Mans what. You can't say Alex. Kerr's better than Lou. Keep in mind, folks, we're not. We'll be happy if we even see the Games. If we even get to play, so it's just. A Fun who would you rather and I think you make the argument either way all yours.

"And John Florio the co authors of a new book were in the ring. Joe Louis max Schmeling and the fight between American Hitler. This book is geared for young adults ages, ten to fourteen. It's from roaring book press, when we left off, we were talking about the outcome of the first fight in which max Schmeling surprise the world, the former heavyweight champion knocking out the, the young contender the hopeful. Joe Louis was expected to eventually shortly become the heavyweight champion the world championship at that time was held by James j Braddock who himself pits pulled off a stunning upset by beating max Baer, not to be confused with smelling, the heavyweight title in nineteen thirty five Lisi. How does how does Louis eventually get that championship before he even has a rematch which smelling Ella was background backroom deal? Jeremy, you wrote a lot about that in here? But to. It was crazy backroom deal that went that was that was the whole thing was manufactured between Mike Jacobs, Mike Jacobs, and Joe Gould, who is Jim Braddock manager at it wasn't really what Jacobs, which Jacobs bid to get Louis title was he gave up ten percents of everything he was going to make on heavyweight championship fights for the next ten years, just to get Louis into the rain. It wasn't even a question of winning just to get Louis the opportunity, he gave up ten percent of everything he was going to earn from heavyweight title fight it, so happens that Louis ended up holding the title for those ten years. So Louis pay ten percent of his income for ten years. I mean in a snapshot of that deal, which is a little funky, but in a snapshot Lewis gave up ten percent of his income for ten years holding the title, just gotten the chance to fight Braddock right of Mike Jacobs, never said never never claimed that the ten percent was coming from. Lewis is purse. But I it's all it's a little unclear and a little. Shady, where that ten percent was eventually came from Joe Louis wins the title from Jim Braddock in nineteen thirty seven he becomes the first African-American world heavyweight champion. They were African American champions and other divisions between that time in nineteen thirty seven but the first since nineteen fifteen when Jack Johnson, lost the title to Jess Willard in Havana, the second fight. It's so highly anticipated, the second Schmeling Louis fight. There is so much propaganda on the German side. Can you give us a sense of what the significance of that fight was for Nazi Germany, which at the time had been in power for five years? We see monumental. I mean it was, you know, Hitler was he was holding up smelling as the exemplar of an Aryan supremacy. And the fact that smelling had one in thirty six convinced Hitler that he was going to win again. And it was I mean the whole country. Was just on the edge of their seats. People were up in the middle of the night waiting for the fight to happen. It was at Yankee Stadium again. And I mean, it seemed like the entire country was just, you know, hanging on this fight and Hitler, just couldn't wait to prove Aryan supremacy. And, you know, don't forget, when one point to add to that is Lewis is going into that fight. He's only got one loss on his record to Schmeling. Otherwise. He's undefeated. So if you're rooting for Schmeling at that point, you're thinking to yourself. Hey, he's Louis looks on beatable. But, you know, he's got a but Schmeling Scott a shot he did beat them before. So, you know, it really made for even in boxing terms, forgetting all the other incredible ramifications of the fight just as a as a pure boxing fan. At that time, it was an interesting fight because you have a guy looks on beatable, but he did lose once this guy and here comes back guy again. So you never know what could happen. In a question going in was was it a fluke that Lewis had lost? Or that's melting had won it. It's one of those things too. Joe Lewis eventually rains heavyweight champion for a decade. He's widely considered if not the greatest prize fighter of all time. He's among the top three or four. But losing that fight early in his career before he was champion a devastating loss for him for so many millions of African Americans for so many millions of Americans who aren't African American were devastated by it. How did that loss? How did let loss affect the rest of his career? You know, because having that loss he might he might have learned some lessons that he was able to apply later. Oh, I think definitely I think I mean he said as much really he, he said that, you know, he was so young. I was twenty one or twenty two when he lost that I fight, and I think he said himself, that he learned a lot, and it was probably as manager, choppy Blackbourne said, it's good that he has trained. Sorry check choppy Blackbourne said it was good that he lost, because, you know it was a lesson for him. He also never said he felt like he was champion until he got to be smelling and that second fight. You know, he he said, you know as long as that losses on my record. I don't feel like I'm really a champion he needed to avenge that loss before he was able to move on. What are the great things about Joe Lewis? I mean, you know, this book, also serves as a biography at a sense of Joe, Louis one of the great figures in the history of sports in the US beyond in boxing and beyond it. He was such important figure. You know, we think of him along with Jesse Owens as a trailblazer, as among the first African American sports heroes who embraced by by white American by all of white Americans. You said, but by many people in white America, and eventually, probably by most of white America, and he approached his celebrity approached his championship very different than differently than his predecessor Jack Johnson. So what is there in the life of Joe Louis to be learned? That's particularly important for young adults as well. You know, it's interesting. They say different fun, his predecessor. He was also very different from his successor. You know, Mohammed Ali, who had a very different take on the way that well he himself. But that also that black America should should respond to what was going on in the country. And at the time of it was the Vietnam war, and he he felt early on. And he said it publicly that he saw. So Lewis was wasn't uncle Tom. And then he, he regretted that he had said that. But I think, you know, for kids today, it's really valuable to see the context in which the enriched, you'll Lewis was was born and raised and, you know, all of the challenges challenges, especially, you know, he was he grew up in Jim crow America. So all of the challenges that he had to face. I think you know, you have to appreciate that context in order to understand the individual terrific, new book for young adults were in the ring. Joe Louis max Schmeling in the fight between America, and Hitler about those two epic fights that took place in one thousand nine thirty six in nineteen thirty eight and also bad, Joe Louis the great champion who emerged from them. It's a pleasure, John and we see it's good to see that you're still speaking. Even though you're married, and working together. Thanks so much for joining us here in the sporting life. Thanks very much for having me. Thank you very much down me next on the sporting. Paul Goldberg explains.

"We just saw Deontay wilder fight for the heavyweight ship not long ago at two hundred eleven pounds. You know, it ends up being a draw with Tyson fury, and he's six foot seven Deontay wilder. I think six seven six six max bear six two and he weighs more. And he is caught pictures of him. He does not he is. He is ripped in a way that athletes were not right. Like that in he's two hundred and fifty pounds. He weighs more than Deontay wilder without being tubby. And Jim Braddock, you know, a former light heavyweight who somehow gets all the way up to like one ninety to one ninety three something like that for the fight. It's not a good fight. It's a pretty boring fight and max pairs clowning his way through it. He doesn't seem to be taking it seriously. It's his first title defense for some reason, he seemed well, there are a lot of reasons why he was ambivalent about the sport. We talked about Frank Campbell on shaft, but he doesn't show up in and Braddock Braddock winds pretty easily. Yeah. And you know, it is a beautiful story. Because again, maybe it's my recollection is not there. But but I remember reading that leading up to the fight Braddock said, I'm not losing this fight. Like there is no way like he was fighting for his life his honor his family. He was fighting for something much more beyond him. And you don't get to see that often. No, literally was I mean, you don't often have in a heavyweight championship fight a guy who is that where the the scent of desperation so recently in his nostrils, you know, I mean in your vital for the heavyweight championship of the world, you probably doing pretty okay for while at that point. You've been making money on other fights you've been getting bigger and stronger you've been accustomed to success in only success and Braddock was a guy who'd been broken. I mean broken, and there was no chance he was ever going to challenge anything like the heavyweight championship. Again. I mean impossible, and this would be everything to him. And he inspired so many people there were so many people pulling for him. But nobody really thought that he had chance gets max Baer who was five years younger by every metric was. Yeah. And shoot wear your man. It should have won the fight. And then, of course, I think it was by that point Schmeling had had upset Lewis, which was you know. Any six. That's right. Nineteen thirty six, and I think at that point bear did have a chance. I mean, you could argue he should have Schmeling. But by that point the war was really starting to ramp up in Europe. And again, maybe this isn't true. Maybe this is just sort of revisionist history. But he had a choice to fight Lewis versus Schmeling, and the logical choice would have been Schmeling. Right because he had beat Louis, but the sort of more American choice was you're gonna buy Braddock choice. Yes. Sorry Braddock choice. That's right. So so we fight s- Lewis. And I mean, we all know how the story ends which is Louis wins in that goes on to create the most dominant heavyweight in the history of the sport twelve years champion twenty five defenses. But the fight was more compelling than people expected. I mean Braddock put up a better fight. Well, as I recall he knocks down Joe Louis in the first round. Yeah. You know? And that's really the he would fight one more fight after Lewis one and then retired one in retired. But he the thing that Jim Braddock would I think he embodies is this idea? Whether or not you buy into it that there is something noble about that sport. At about the commitment required in about the dedication and about its code whenever that co you know, the code of courage, personal courage of total commitment of leaving their something. Honorable about fighting till you've got nothing left. None of that stuff matters. Max baer. That's the contrast to max Baer thought this was this was show business, and it was a way for him to make a buck..

"But it was a very gentle blow. It was almost a jab. It was the beating he took the hammer air that had made it possible for that. So all of this is to basically say when max Baer finally beats Premera, which he does in ridiculous fashion. I think there was ten knocked that's laughable laughable fight. Yeah. Bear looks invincible and he'd already beaten Schmeling, correct? He'd already beaten smelled. And there is no way that he was going to give mailing a rematch. Given what was going on politically again? It's it's been a while. Peter. But my recollection is nobody was interested in giving max Schmeling rematch against bear. Just because he wasn't really conc-. He was considered washed up finished. I mean when he beads Joe Lewis in nineteen thirty ridiculous. Washed up in finish. He he wasn't even part of the discussion. So they decided to take a tune-up fight basically with this guy who can't possibly win. Right. Well, what happens? Jim Braddock has been out of the fight game. He's hurt. He'd been light heavyweight contender late nineteen twenties. He'd lost his one shot to Tommy lock grin. Who was a great light heavyweight and at that point Braddock sin tire personal situation, really a falls apart and is professional Scituate. Not his personal really his professional situation breaks his hand can't fight anymore. It can make any money the depression hits. He is working on the docks. Cross the Hudson river from Hatton. He's desperate. He goes on relief, which that's a welfare, which that time in Braddock mind in minds of lot of people that was kind of humiliation taking government assistance, especially guy like Braddock would been so successfully been fought for the light heavyweight championship which was a. Big big deal in nineteen twenty nine in a way that it's not now and everybody thinks he's through he's finished. He's done totally kaput. But the interesting thing is by doing the work on the docks because he doesn't have the money for bus fare or cab fare to get from his home to the docks. He's walking every day twenty miles ridiculous. He's working as a stevedore, you know, hauling giant bales and stuff like that. Even with a broken hand. He builds up the strength, especially in his left hand. He'd never had a left hand before the right hand is broken. So he's building strength all of these things. It sounds like some kind of fairy tale or something make prepare him in a way, he hadn't been prepared to seize the moment, he gets the shot against up and comer named John Griffin. John corn Griffin on the undercard of the bear Carneiro fire, and he was not expected to beat Griffin. He was just an opponent. He was the guy who's going to be a stepping stone for corn Griffin on his way to fighting max Baer, but Braddock is. Different braddock. And he delivers against corn Griffin. Stunning. The promoters people who had you know, these high hopes for for corn Griffin whose name is still in boxing circles kind of stands for guy. Couldn't get it done steppingstone. It's almost like a Wally pip thing. And almost exactly you're later these hundred and sixty four days later, he beats beats a couple of more impressive fighters on the way sets himself up for a showdown with max Baer for the heavyweight title, which nobody gave him a shot. I believe it was eight or nine to one huge underdog eight nine ten to one hundred depending on who you ask which at that time was I think the most lopsided odds ever and a heavyweight championship fight. Of course, we're gonna come to one that's more lopsided in a minute in Braddock is this guy who's fighting for his family's got three little kids. He's got the wife. They're living in poverty living in poverty. When this rise starts after wins one of the fights on the way that year, you know, he goes he shows up at the relief office. I mean, it it almost. Sounds like it has to be apocryphal. But everybody said it really happy shows up the relief office in return returns the money. They have thirty five dollars whatever that he'd taken on government relief, and he becomes the people's hero. But nobody thought he had a chance against max pair who looked spare looked like an execution and he was plays. Oh, and he's a specimen..

"And for years I've been saying look, no, I'm right. I was right. I get a freelance writer. I'd written some magazine profiles here and there, and I always, you know, had this plan in my mind. I wanted to write a book. Dad wrote thirty three books. I'm gonna write a book and and I felt I had something to say, but I never had really the idea who'd ideas. So Scott said, hey, you know, they're making a movie about Jim Braddock. Nobody's ever written a book really bad Jim Braddock or not in a long time. Anyway, not since the nineteen thirties. What do you think about writing a book that might coincide with this film that's being made? I said. I, I love the Jim Braddock story. I love the max Baer story. You know what? I'm gonna do it. Finally gonna get off my butt and actually write the book. I guess I was three fourth time, something like that. Thirty three thirty four nights at you. I'm gonna do it, and I fell in love with the story and got sold the book very quickly who great editor at Houghton Mifflin, who some candidates and shepherded the project. And you know, I immersed myself in it, you know? And I look back now I wrote that book which did well, then at eighteen months later, I published a book that Jesse Owens triumph, which did nicely, and I figured I'm gonna do this every year. I'm gonna do this every year and a half like my dad did. And then. Life change? No, I got married. I re kids. I used to write those books between midnight and three AM pretty much now you know, I'm I'm asleep most nights by like ten pm, so feel kinda bad. I haven't. I haven't followed up on those two and they there were books that eve me, you know, it was a great experience and I'd like to do more in fact, right after triumph came out and she's seven, I was having compensated sounds like namedrop it, but he was friend even Halberstam calls me for about that. He says, disturbing. Sure. Mike, what should it be Davies after write a book about New York? Mets. Thank you. Rate story. I can't writable but he ate FLC's giants. Coal.

I'll show you the ropes and you know, you know, one of the a horrible tragedy took place within a week of that conversation. David of inside aren't Irk crash. rats, mortgage. And and I never got obviously, you know, horrible tragedy rate band, Rachel couple of great books that that that he came out with really long story short, I've, I've, I, I have not got around to writing the book that meant I'm not sure. I'm not sure where to go from here, but I've got some ideas, but you know, I, it's nice. I still take pride in those things that on my shelf in basketball accuracy can be the difference between winning and losing..

"So the American mind set has shifted radically and you can tell us a couple of ways. So he did you ever see the movies and rela man with Russell Crowe is about Jim Braddock. So Jim Braddock was this this over the hill boxer who basically had played out the string and was given a shot at the the world heavyweight championship, and for while he's on the dolts, the middle of the great depression, he's on the dole and he takes money from the from the federal government after he wins the championship, he walks back into the welfare office with a roll of cash, and he hands it back to the welfare office and they say, sir, you don't need to pay that back. And he says, yes, I do how many Americans today would actually do that. How many Americans today. If they made the money would walk back into the welfare office and turned the money back over to the welfare office. I think the answer is pretty close to zero. The most Americans don't have any sense of shame or guilt about taking. Money from other folks. They don't have any sense that if they could prevent it, it would be better for them not to take that money. I think people feel in the United States that they are entitled to money because the government is nameless faceless. See, here's one of the nice things about charity as opposed to the way that it works on the government to level the government makes it seem as though the government is handing you the money, the government has no money of its own. The government is taking from me and giving to you or taking from you and giving to me or taking from the future and giving a toss. Now the government is not a repository of magical money trees. There is no money forest, but the government presents you with the idea that there is. So when the government signs, you check, you don't have to feel guilty about anything. It's just receiving free money after all. However, when it comes to charity and their folks in my community, my Jewish community who received charity, they feel terrible about it. You can see that you can see they feel terrible about it. And I think that's a good thing. I think it's a good thing. I think you should feel bad about taking charity as long as you. Because that's what's going to encourage you to not stay on the dole is going to encourage you to get out there and work. It's going to encourage you to make a move toward prosperity is he can pay all those people back. If you see the money that you are receiving as a as a step toward getting your feet under you once again, so that you can pay people back too much better way of doing money and money is growing for free and that you can just take it no matter at any time at any place. It's just a lack of entrepreneurial spirit. And unfortunately, I think that that's the way that that we're going in the United States. That's example, number one example, number two. There's a lot of talk these days when for and by the way that this exists as well in places like Norway, so Norway, which is which is prized loved by folks on the American left and they nor the fact that Norway actually has become a place where the work ethic is starting to collapse. The economists wrote in two thousand fifteen Norwegians have coined. Verb to natve meanings. Get money from envy the states benefit agency. You see, you actually see this happening where people believe that they are entitled to things the very fact that we call these benefits entitlements as opposed to benefits is suggestive of this deck. That's point. Number one point number two, the idea of picking up and moving. We are the most mobile society in the history of mankind. It is easier to get from one place to another on planet earth faster than any time in the history of humankind. When we talk about our ancestors in the United States, we're thinking of people in covered wagons, taking six months to cross the country..

"That gives you pause about singling out one person is that simply the best way to illustrate the story of so many what a great question and i'd say i'm conflicted because there are so many stories that we may not know and there are stories that day that we do no captured indelibly brilliantly in the book one hundred two minutes by flynn and wire the to new york times reporters and i would suggest for anyone who would like to learn about nine eleven from the inside of the towers not simply from the monolithic images of the towers collapsing but the lives that were law austin side it's a masterpiece and there were many stories of heroism documented by flynn and wire but in this there's no attempt here to elevate wells above were to place him below anyone else it is just one story but sometimes as you know germany and i thought this was done brilliantly in cinderella man one story speaks to a time and i think jim braddock speaks to a time in our country a time of what was happening socially in terms of class and economy and a story that could bind people together and in his own way wells in the aftermath of nine eleven in the growth of his legacy in the most modest natural ways by people hearing about it and then sharing a particular parents with their children that that's why i think the story has spread the way that it has we're speaking with tom rinaldi doubt his new book the red bandanna life the choice and the legacy about wells crowder who died or nine eleven there is no mention until near the end of the book about those people who killed wells crowder and the other nearly three thousand people in nine eleven in the end it only comes up in the context of the mission to kill osama bin laden why that decision i think again of that's another great point jeremy into me the night the scene did you referring to the night that osama bin laden's death is made public do the booth through the presidential address by president obama that's rendered through one house in america walls crowder's house and alison hearing about it on television while she's in the living room jeff seeing it on television while he's downstairs in a crowder families basement they're simultaneous reaction coming together and the how they react to that piece of news that osama bin laden after nearly ten years has been caught and killed and i think their reaction speaks to the complexity if you will of.
