I would I would love that. I like to touch up on the two new foes on the Horizon League Produce Fort Wayne, and Robert, Morris, in the Pittsburgh area I mean that gives the Horizon League seven state covered. It's another big city into the mix. I think fort. Wayne Youngstown might be the smallest of the bunch attorney up. Probably yeah, probably Robert, Morris is maybe fifteen or sixteen miles outside of Pittsburgh, so it's it's when you go. Play them. You're probably not going to be staying downtown without by the airport I'm very familiar with Robert Morris because that's where the five star basketball camp was held for years, and I made many trips up there to attend that camp They've built a brand new facility for their games. Games, they they've had a lot of success. They won their league last year. That's a great addition. I was shocked I. Mean I had never heard anything about Robert Morris as a potential new member, so when that all happened? I was quite frankly stunned. apparently had been in the work some time, but I I wasn't aware of it. Neither was Chris. I talked to Chris about it. Even he wasn't aware of it, but yeah, they're.

But I mean planned twenty two regular season games. Is a lot of games and see that that gets back to. You know to be honest about it. I think what the Horizon League needs to do. If they're gonNA continue to have the tournament, be there determine our as to who goes to the incident tournament, but the team that wins the league should host the tournament this business of to where we went to Detroi-, we went to Fort. Wayne and I'm not. We went to Indianapolis last year for the tournament and the attendance is horrible.

You've been through a lot in your life. You've had real adversity. Real problems real pressure situations. You don't really get pressed over TV too much I've noticed you know what I mean I get a little stressed out before the show. I got prep stuff. Doom got the elements. Early. You know what I mean. You don't really get to press over television. There's a little press in your voice today. There's a little pressed in your voice today. I didn't like. that. Oh. My Copeland's. First off. He's an icon an idol. Number one number two to so many things that I just wanted to look in his eyes in here him say. Then I missed, but the other thing was. I wanted to make sure I pay him the proper homage he deserves. Because as we talk about civil unrest in social, social justice warriors. If I was doing an all time. Ranking Muhammed Ali would be number one. Jim Brown would be number two. All Time. I think that there is a a generation of people. Listen this podcast right now and again. It's not your fault. If you're under twenty six, and you're not familiar with Jim, Brown or or Crianza Jabbar what they've done off the field is there's a generation of people they're seeing athletes of today be vocal and be active, and they should look up what the people over your shoulder have done in the past, and the very similar sense in a much more tense situation. If you can believe it, and that's bill, Russell. Lew alcindor criminal will Jabbar. Muhammed Ali and Jim Brown. So couple of things I want to talk to you about. On the shoulders of the giants that I stand on and I'll definitely invite back on the show, and hopefully we'll have an issue next time, but you did a great job in. He said a lot of things that are going resonate with the public. I think so. Too things are very important to you. Voting in voters, rights and the right to vote the accessibility of voting. In the Detroit Pistons. And those two circles don't normally intersect. Intersect explain to the people exactly what I'm hinting. I'm really proud that the Detroit. Pistons and the Atlanta Hawks. Have opened their facilities. To be. Places where people can actually vote in the inner city. In this is major. Here's what. The Hawks and the Pistons play down. In their cities. Usually downtown in a major metropolitan city. especially one that's predominantly black. inner-city polling locations. Are. Remarkably worse than suburban ones. Are The difference between life and death. In the suburbs. They have older people. Working did not as familiar with technology and the machines. Amazon in the inner city, not familiar with the technol- in machines and he might get up to. The poll in the ballot doesn't even work. Doesn't even more. So now if you have. A professional sports team that's opening up its arena little caesars arena for people to vote. That twenty thousand people that that plays whole. Okay that chain that that that that that that is a substantial support in the more than a volt movement in order to get back, give back to your community and give everybody a legitimate chance to vote. And have their voice beyond. Travel Times the wait times the equipment that you vote on the conditions in which you vote. The ease and overall experience are so dramatically different in urban and non urban communities that I I just. Am One. WHO RECOGNIZE IT and I'm proud to.

As positive as it is at this time. And it takes. A lot of players. Unselfish. Being an intelligence about this to make it work, so I'm very happy. They optimistic about. And this movement comes during a time where we're all facing global pandemic with the corona virus.

So, There's been some discussion about changing the name of the Washington football team. We do not say the name on this program. Do think now is the time for them to change the name of that team in the NFL. You say the name. tell you. Things that needs to be changed. I'm. All for it. I think it's a consciousness. Been Era. You must make those bowl moves. And yes, I think they should change. Go why they changing it. Let's move on to. A world where and People eight people of giving her expect.

It's good to see all of today's athletes being so active, and is it true that your activism once landed you on the FBI watchlist? Do you know how they're. Doing trying to do everything.

Almost about to open up in Orlando and Dame Lillard has come out and said that he does not think that NBA players will follow the bubble. Rules Jalen. What do you think? been talking about this since the beginning here's the deal. They're young Aaron shape. Handsome enrich and you know what happens when you're not at work you're enjoying life in basketball is two or three hours a day whether it's practice or a game, and you still have your mobile device in your hand got. A smartphone can be a lot of deals to be a lot of videos to be alive. Other people getting caught up via social meet. Do you know what else people are going to be doing? Find a way to give people in that bubble that ain't playing basketball. That's going to take place. It's there's a lot of levels of this I think a lot of people sort of talk about it in a romantic sense that people will come in and out to break the, but it's not just that there's friends that you wanNA. See if you've ever been to a hotel, you spend the whole vacations hotel, and after you've been to the pool and you've ate at the restaurant and you've rented the movie in the room. You want leave like it's. It's not just romantic. You WanNa. Leave just physically leave. Leave the hotel that you're staying in and not just go to work. Hotel Work Hotel where Kotel. You want to try different food. You WanNa out like I just think that leaving the bubble is something that people will do for romantic other relations I mean romantic and other reasons, but will they get caught will be real punishment. Do they really have to quarantine? If such and such went to a restaurant outside of the bubble? Do you think they might turn a blind eye to that in terms of punishment? I don't believe so. You can't because the Koran is serious and weakest speculate all we want, but here's what we do know. Many states loosen restrictions. And the corona virus cases continue to rise so all we know the next two or four weeks could be a case study of whether this experiments point to happen or not happen so. Still a work in progress. Well I. Think this is going to happen. Because you think about the thing about the community. Creating people are tested, if not every day every other day, and it wants a positive test is recognized that person's quarantines that can spread the neural habits that people would spread without the testing, I think with that much testing and one hundred and fifty million dollars. They've pudding in to putting this on. It will happen. I. Don't think be many positive test is. Swing series the way other people think we'll just because testing so much, but there's definitely gonna be people coming in and out of that bubble they're not supposed to, and we will see just how hard the will come down on them and due to all of this someone who might walk out of this with a chat with someone who might walk out of office where the championship Cuco and he said. That getting a championship here would be the toughest championship. You could win. What do you think about that? I think. In various ways, you can say that it's the most unique championship of all time plan in the bubble. After doing eighty percent of the regular season, finding ways to play games for play in with the H. Spot, and then engaging into a playoffs, it will be the most unique journey I kit necessarily be the toughest journey, but how about this a all? Teams I was just thinking about this. The Los Angeles Clippers are the only one. That this is the best chance in the history of their franchise to win a championship. All Time. All the time. And, it's all. Like that that has never got to the finals or won it in is the jv squad and their old building actually wins it underneath circumstance. So one thing that I think about this statement and allow the team. We've heard leading into this bubble situation. It's not unbiased when you are a contender and you are the bucks and you the number one seed east all of a sudden. It's Oh it's the top. It's the toughest championship to win. This is going to be the hardest one to win, but if you're not in it like dream on who we spoke to. There's applicants. Say IF YOU'RE NOT GONNA go. It's like you know what we really consider. Not going because of the social injustice in what we can do, but if you are a you, if you are a champion contender, your, let's use this platform and fight for social injustice I. Just think there's a lot of bias especially when it comes to the championship and how hard it's going to be. In the Asterix, but the source on this one is someone who wasn't healthy. Win The NBA. Season ended or was paused and is now healthy, so certainly not going to be tougher for him personally with the time to get health. What do you think about that state? I agree because at the season was progressing he. He was dealing with the knee injury Lebron was. Gaining Steve on the MVP race. Now he's had a chance to recover. Think he's been fantastic. The entire season and deserves the MVP regular season, and so going into these playoffs is going to be interesting to see our surrounding cash shows up Middleton and BLEDSOE and if they're able to overcome what everybody's going to have to overcome as it relates to the sacrifices needed in the bubble. Let's see if they get not only uphold. The nobody wants to see in the league, but actually make it to the finals and see of Ianovski lead them to a championship. We'll see feels like both the eastern and Western conferences wide open. As ever as we head to Orlando, it is now time for news that matters..
Floyd family attorney says charge against officer should be upgraded to first-degree murder
"Well and I've been talking for days now about the the tragedy of the death of George Floyd at the knee of a police officer who held him down for eight minutes shot by the neck and he eventually lost his life and that man has now been charged with third degree murder second degree voluntary met involuntary manslaughter people are looking for more even possibly first degree murder I was listening to the the Florida attorney today talking on national television and discussing a number of things concerning the case and how they believe there may be some well premeditated aspects of this case but the reason I'm bringing it up on the sports show we'll get to that in a moment I have Greg dial is who is on the disk gets to the pitch for news line who happens to be an attorney at law and I I think it's very important that we don't lose sight of the story in Pittsburgh last night tragically we felt some of that violence that continues to spread from coast to coast am tomorrow night in my program I'll be talking in pretty much opening the phone lines between eight and ten and giving you a chance to voice your opinion and we all will on KDKA radio over the next couple of days but the thing that I really took away without watching Margaret o'brien talked to the mayor of Atlanta of course as I mentioned talk to the attorney for the Floyd family talking to other people like Melvin Carter the mayor of J. Paul Minneapolis if this is a story that is polarize our nation especially in the midst of this pandemic but when you think of calling Capranica those are people of color in sports and what they have done to stand up for the black race and minorities many NBA players were actually involved in these protests some of them returned to Atlanta where they grew up to to speak their mind and be a part of a peaceful protest that obviously turn very the ugly with a lot of violence there's been discussion of anarchist a white supremacist if you will who have rolled into various towns to ignite these fires literally and these horrible Ryan said for the most part many people but we're going to be peaceful protest so Greg the reason I want to talk to you as far as athletes this is nothing new I've seen Jim Brown and many others Kareem Abdul Jabbar Mohammed Ali obviously spent most of his life fighting for civil rights this is just such a very bad time in our country's history my question to you is when you think about what happened to Mr Floyd and there are many great law enforcement officers out there but one thing is for sure when you're dealing with many athletes many of them of the black race this is a concern into something has been a part of the sports world is a part of all of our lives and I think that we owe at least a segment or two because of your legal background and your sports background to talk about it and again no one ever thought that this would be the story that would kind of replace this pandemic even in the midst of the pandemic and it's a shame that it's come down to this but there's no way that you go anywhere right now in this region or any television station running radio station or a newspaper you pick up that this is not the story good morning good morning robin unfortunately it's really not a good morning I I wish there were different things to talk about generally enough for you guys you know I usually come in with some happy new year for you in the mornings but it it just feels like there's something gone wrong that the world is off its axis or something but but there's just seems to be more more bad news each and every day but we'll get through this we we are hearty people and we'll figure it out and and we actually you man elements need to be able to to figure out ways to pass these things out but it's very difficult and it's hard for for me a white man to to be able to express a what's the the people of all colors are experiencing in our country right now because I I'm not listed but but I do have your clients and friends said no we can't have a conversation about and try to figure out ways whereas the people that we can go forward and and you know put all these differences a lady somehow some way but but boy it's really just off for a sound doesn't seem like there's any kind of logical or reasonable way to proceed because the patch things up you know as I was watching the face the nation program I must tell you I really was torn whether or not I should bring it up again after spending the majority of the last couple of days talking about it and will over the next couple of days despite us having a June second primary it will be the topic of conversation during the open talk portion of my programs right through Wednesday night in some of the folks that I have scheduled for political purposes are perfect because a lot of folks are tying the political aspect as far as from local government to state government a national government it's all leading up to this June second primary so the timing is there but I just wish it was something else that I was discussing but I said to myself you know listen I've always been one to try to take the high road and have a peaceful outlook and not really try to stir the pot but this is something there's really struck me personally because of watching that video and obviously having many people in law enforcement of color and yes of course many of them are dear friends I understand that they too are frustrated because of what happened in Minnesota with this police officer all I can say is this growing up even in the turbulent civil rights era of the sixties the one thing that always brought people together especially on the playground in the neighborhood was sports and then I saw some of my sports heroes like Muhammad Ali my all time favorite also Jim Brown in there another scream of dole Jabbar who always stood up and spoke out but I must tell you it's just so sad to see something that is happening of this nature in twenty twenty that I experienced during the height of the civil rights watching the nightly news with Walter Cronkite seeing the black and white film footage of the fire hoses turned on young black teenagers attack dogs police dogs if you will that were put into that mode because that was the command they were given it's just hard to believe that we have evolved so many decades later we're sports's evolve where in the world now without sports we lost a hundred thousand people in this country and counting when it comes to the pandemic and this is on the front page and no matter how you look at it is just flat out sad to think we have not come that very far since Martin Luther king walked this earth and lost his life because of his fight for civil rights it almost makes you feel like robbery we haven't come anywhere you know we we're we're right back to where we started in the sixties in it is so sad to to have to be in a situation where where in hello to our address like that the only way they can can express those the end it is these were mostly protests that were peaceful in and well deserved and then they turn crazy because of outside sources apparently and no one knows for sure but it seems that that especially in Pittsburgh this was not something that was driven by the peaceful protests that started out in that that's bigger shame of it all in and I'm hoping that there is some way to find these people that came in there that that tried to incite the violence to to get to a point where we can catch them and get them off the street there's no place in our world you know Greg and I don't know if it's because when we were raised in one of the things that I've been stressing to my audience and I have been through it all I've been through rose Jonny Gammage obviously going back to the nineties up with Rodney king I have been on the radio talking about all of these things and how tragic they are and hoping that they would stop just like the school shootings that I go back to nineteen ninety nine covering the Columbine case the thing that I have come to believe it is all about what you can do teaching your children about how this is not how you act do not treat people of a different color race nationality religious belief other than how you want to be treated that's the way you and I were both raised in I'm not looking for us to get a gold star or a Pat on the back but you have to know is I know the way we grew up weather was on the basketball court or the classroom or just spending it time at home eating something that our parents prepare force and you looked across the table many times that person was black and I never looked at it any other way than just that a friend of mine enjoying a moment whether it be in school in that classroom or on that basketball court or on that of field of athletics and I think we become so isolated not just because of this pandemic but the world that we live in today that people have lost sight as far as what they need to do and how they should be raising their children and more importantly something that I've always thought was healthy a healthy mix of people from all walks of life we we need to get back to that if we want to survive this and move forward and be a healthier nation not so much for you and I but for your daughters and my children and generations to come yeah I can't agree with you more there has to be a way to figure this out there investors are seemingly every time an issue or an engine that comes up like this we often dialogue began everybody just kind of goes back to their quarters in as if it were a boxing ring what okay yeah we had these conversations but nothing gets accomplished you're nothing gets fixed and then you have another incident where were some law enforcement in the Milan in an attack on law enforcement you know they they're there for the better part of on everyone and probably more than ninety nine point nine percent all law enforcement officers in doing the right thing but the house in in increments and issue like this that seemingly are happening in the weekly Robinson it is these issues come up or that they go along if someone acts in a way

well the well what when I work in a shop in fabrication I make about twenty an hour but when I go out to the refineries it's about about thirty thirty six so little over thirty dollars yes yes Sir so twelve hundred S. on a forty hour week that's twelve hundred so about sixty grand a year and then do you do some overtime what eighty year yes Sir yeah that's that's in the neighborhood he married I am very what is it three years so you can stay home mom you sound really young I'm thirty three okay and how you've been a little Wilder professionally about six years that would be job and how did you get into that I mean I wouldn't show California given a bunch of trouble once and with energy all the time all the time product that cases coming out so I moved out here my dad said he'd moved out here imac to move out here you can start over I guess the over there and do whatever the hell of doing so I decided to run it but fresh how if you were in and out of jail in now your life is is on a solid track what changed what what what happened how did you fix that Feyerick people places and things Michael I left the environment I was in a gang infested became an ambassador for the longer we live there Eric you know hang out with people in my neighborhood thought hang out people from school and little by little dragon in the life and then I when I moved out here I don't have any of that it was basically just a change of scenery and then that book they made all the difference really really yeah the changes here he was with the main the main thing though the main thing I need to get away from that in that area what the hell is Mary I'm not gonna sit and have a couple clips of Europe but nothing like over there they are listening in some forty my dad always with you so I thought I would be getting interested in you know verified that I used to be a Democrat I mean they might believe the convo of his talent but my beliefs were aligned with them those names for you the more you rush Michael Irvin got into the you know conservativism mail certain concern about guys who you know republicanism and it is going to change my lifestyle my at my a little bit but it's my belief that politics is downstream of culture so you first had to decide what kind of person you are going to be what kind of values you were going to subscribe to and you're saying to me you were the same person in LA in here LA and Houston it was simply a question of fallen in with the wrong group meant you engaged in the wrong behaviors when you got out of that group you had some degree of clarity leave Democrat Republican out of it but yeah you you use then wanted to be a good husband and a good person and a good worker and a good American whereas that wasn't on on the table before exactly that that's a hundred percent right it was man I wish we had a thesis Fred I I I really believe that I see I visited prisons my brother used to work at one I see young people that are in trouble you know at every step along the way and I will tell you it's not because I fear becoming a crime victim myself it is because I really want people you sound to me like somebody who's confident and proud of the man that you are and I would love every young person to have that feeling because when you're in the house so when you're in the game you're not really proud of who you are you don't I mean and you know this you've been you've been on both sides of it I would love to be able you know if there was a magic pill we could give people tend to have the life experience because truthfully you're the exception to the rule you're not the norm if we don't fix themselves that's true okay little bit of that good the gun a little bit of listening my bad advice the first time I like to get the hell out of where I was yeah you have kids I have used that children that when when biological son yeah okay all right it it's amazing how those little ones will make you look at your life differently isn't yeah yeah Yeahs now all of a sudden they're not living for yourself you're living far you know we we all we all want our dad to be somebody we look up to and then when we become that add it changes everything because you want to be so you don't want your kids to have to go oh my goodness it's funny how right fall into bad decisions but when we think about what I want my kids with that what I want my kids to have to have a dad who made that decision what makes it really easy to make good decisions it was it could be argued like you have to be careful because if you through years old and a few years old they don't know what's good what's bad so I mean I could be I could be doing it live in the same way with him before and you'd be looking at that he was he just looked at the data matter what I'm doing really so I'd really be careful what I'm doing if you don't know the difference between what to keep and what to what to what's not good you know I didn't know I I actually have no you know I have a theory Fred we don't have to we don't have to encourage young black men to be Republicans we have to show them love we have to show them we have to give them guidance we have to show them how much opportunity is there we have to show them how much pride they can have in their own accomplishment and when you teach young people this when you demonstrate it when you open this door when you show them it's not gonna be easy I was going to give it to you when you show them and they begin to experience that for themselves you don't have to tell folks.

Andrew Luck's Retirement Highlights the NFL's Growing Problem
"Know what it wasn't long ago. I think it was last week when two weeks ago when mclovin said hey how about this poll question is andrew lock more likely to be an slight disappointment or hall of famer and this is when the ankle injury came. I remember it was the calf and then the owner robert say said i think it's an ankle and then i started to think there's more involved in this. There's more to this story. Sorry ben just glynn from the calf to a high ankle. I don't even i still don't know what he has but we know it serious enough that he announced his retirement and everybody's got an opinion on this. His decision to retire was a shock to the system for you know the the entire n._f._l. Nation when people say boy oy this is the most shocking football story we've ever heard i mean like new. No no no no how about we start with o._j. Simpson michael vick aaron hernandez. Those are shocking stories. Andrew looks different cat all right he is. He went back to college to get his degree. He could have left after his junior year. He went back to get his degree in architectural design. I believe he there are guys who are or football players and then there guys who play football most our football players j._j. Watt is a football player. Should he still be playing football. No no not at all but it andrew luck is a guy who is a guy who was good at playing football. I don't know if he's a a football guy and there's a difference in that but that doesn't mean he wasn't good at it or didn't love it. I just think that we're we're so unfamiliar. Oh you're with an athlete who uses logic where you go. What are you doing. Most football players in pauley had the analogy. Let's say you have a rock rock in your shoe. Most football players will continue to play in fact. Stop down on the rock. Where is andrew luck goes. How about. I just take the rock in my shoe. I mean it sounds logical. He just took the rock out of a shoe. Football players will tie the shoe differently like they'll somehow find a way. Hey i'll walk differently who care i'll take madison. Shoot me up. Whatever andrew lucked just said. I'm gonna take the the pebble <music> out. He's removing football from his life. Everybody has an opinion on this and when he started rattle off the list of injuries it makes a lot of sense but it's hard for us to imagine and by the way athletes are just commodities. We've moved on from all of these athletes. We don't care really don't care eric. Dickerson joined us in los angeles when we were out there and here's one of the great running backs of all time any looked great. I said the kind you look like you could give me a couple of carries. He said people don't realize the toll that this takes on goes. I slept in a reclining chair for two years because i had neck and back injuries. Nobody cares about eric dickerson's injuries. Nobody cared about jim. Mcmahon's injury his health. He thought about killing himself. We move on and andrew luck realizes that and yes he got paid paid and the reason for people to be upset and how do you do this to your team. And how do you quit on your team. I understand those emotions. I really do but i have to look at this and say andrew. Luck did what andrew luck thought he needed to do. Is it inexcusable to you know oh colts fans. Yeah i get that. I don't think he's saying boy. Watch what i'm gonna do. I'm going to set up the colts for failure now. I don't think i think that he had to process this. It took a long time. It's something you do you do well. It's your identity and maybe he doesn't want that is his identity and can you get away from this. You know the guys who had all the surgeries. I'm seeing all of this stuff here. Everybody's saying how do you do. I understand all of those emotions. Russians here but andrew lock did what andrew lucked thought he needed to do. If barry sanders was a quarterback and he walked away we would have abba bigger issue with what barry sanders did at age thirty-one calvin johnson at aged thirty. Jim brown age thirty. What are you doing walking away from the sport. Guess you've got a contract extension. There are a lot of questions. I have ranted you luck in this situation. When did you really know and when did you let the cold snow and what is the reason. Is there more surgery down. The road like you went through shoulder. You had and i put some of this on the colts by the way ryan grigson in particular the former g._m. What did i say for years. You have this investment. It's like having this unbelievable engine but then you have a car that's falling apart. You traded for trent richardson. You didn't use any lyman you finally went out and got quinton nelson and what happened. Andrew luck had the best season of his career. He had the fewest sacks. It's not something that takes a whole lot of thought. Hey how about we have a good offensive line. Chances are andrew. Luck might be able to play play a little bit longer but so many injuries and then you start to get down on yourself and you get in your head and you don't wanna go through it and and i look i couldn't play the game. I've told you if you ever watched a game on the sidelines. You never let your kids play. It is violent. It's more violent than you think because when you hear it you can close your eyes on the sidelines just listen. There's no way you go yep. I want to play play. I know we're macho. I know we all wanna play through pain. I did stupid things with my knee and my shoulder waited thirty five the years to get my torn rotator and i'm not even a pro athlete. I have an artificial knee because i was stupid when i played this guys out there and they're taking shots at him. He's getting hit lacerated kidney. He's got shoulder. He's got yeah. I understand all of these injuries. Do we want him out there. Yes because it's about us he. What are you doing to my fantasy team. Hey what you doing to my colds. You're you guys got a chance to. I understand hold loose things but this is something that we don't understand an athlete who says i'm gonna take a logical approach. He's a guy he's got a flip phone. He's got a book club. I mean he he's not your normal guy. Hi and we can't understand this. He's newly married. We can't understand this because all of us would go. I killed a play and make that kind of money and be a starting starting quite yes. This story is about us in how we perceive. This people didn't play wanna tell you they would play or how oh you need to play or. What's wrong with your your soft. You gotta take a step back and andrew luck. Doing i see all of this twitter chatter. Oh this is going to stay with him forever. I is very sanders. A quitter calvin johnson a quitter. Is jim brown a quitter right i. I haven't heard that i'd never heard somebody say. Jim brown's a quitter. Barry sanders quit walked down on the <hes> the lines how can you do. I guess andrew luck is a quitter but i'm guessing will move past this calvin johnson. Is he a quitter or see smart. I don't know i just i saw this reaction this vitriol that andrew luck how dare you do for this. He walked away from his team. I get i get it. He gave up on a sport. He excels at but no matter what people say. I think we can all agree. Andrew luck was outstanding when he did play and wishing luck and no pun intended with his life after football.
Andrew Luck, Joan And One Minute discussed on SportsCenter AllNight
"Of sports where Andrew luck has announced his retirement Joan I thought we were going to be talking about college football tonight is Florida holds on to beat Miami twenty four to twenty in weeks zero of college football camping world stadium in Orlando we had our many D. as turnover chain topics ready to go and Angela decides to retire one of the most shocking sports stories that I could ever remember Jalen it's got to be right up there I remember the night Barry Sanders retired and that was really shocking I remember being in school as a kid when Magic Johnson announced that he had HIV that's got to be I mean as far as just flooring you with news because it also had to do with magic self people always say Jim brown's retirement a year after going to a championship game and and be in really good to you know go hang out with rock hell well should make a bunch action movies is one of the craziest retirement stories ever but did this this one will crack that all time crazy list I'm with you on Magic Johnson and H. I. V. that rocked everybody's world and then the other one that comes to mind is Michael Jordan retiring after winning championships and then he suddenly starts playing baseball with the Birmingham barons so when those stories though have some other impacts you know with Michael Jordan you can always get into the speculation as to why he was really gone from the NBA and played baseball for a little bit of time you bring up Barry Sanders that seems to be a franchise issue with the Detroit Lions when it comes to putting a good team around star players and money Calvin Johnson actually has a similar situation on going right now with the lines this one to me is just sad it's sad it's disappointing in the sense that Andrew luck had so much going for him coming into the NFL he was gonna be ushering in the next wave of quarterbacks that we were gonna be talking about the same regard as Tom Brady and Peyton manning and as we've mentioned couple times already Peyton manning's actually gonna out last Andrew luck and that's where we are tonight yeah it's yeah we we use the word disappointing earlier when we were looking for the one word to sum up his career because neither one of us felt like a botched was appropriate despite the note a Superbowl absolutely not yeah one of the most ballyhooed quarterbacks of all time yeah he is a four time pro bowler he is he a hall of Famer I mean that that that is a double the rate over the next couple so how about slow down the hall of fame come on how about how about that give me one give me one minute Joe is Andrew luck a hall of Famer to give you one second no come on that is the one of the best quarterbacks of his era yes we barely saw what he was four time Pro Bowl well I backstabber I mean is there like a rookie wing of the hall of fame that we could put it right now that's a silly conversation in that I've seen it kind of pop up on social media but I do think that these silly conversation right now what's not so the conversation is what do the colts do going forward I think we're gonna be finding out more about Andrew luck situation in the next coming days and Adam Schefter broke the news is most definitely going to fill in some of these gaps whether they know how long this conversation going on but you do have the immediate impact of football not just for the call from cell to the division and what the AFC playoffs
"Be N._F._l.. Teams are in training camp but that doesn't mean every player is we've got hold doubts in key spots Saints Michael Thomas Chargers Melvin Gordon who else Yana can gakugei Jacksonville Trent Williams in Washington and of course Ezekiel Elliott in Dallas the big one big name that everyone's watching out there in oxnard California all guys that <hes> are heading into either the final year of their deal or wants some sort of adjustment on their contract before camp or the season starts so we gotta go through all these the person who helps us make sense of all this stuff is our own Adam schefter so Adam Una make this pretty simple. I will give you a name and you tell us the latest on that player. Start with Ezekiel Elliott of of the cowboys will Zeke Elliott has not shown up in Oxnard California side of the Dallas Cowboys training camp and they're going through physical today. They are basically supposed to be attending a team meeting and there's no sign of Zeke right now which tells you soup that it looks like at the very least Zeke Watch is underway and it certainly feels like this is going to be a hold out while the two sides tried to see if they can come up with a new deal for Zeke Elliott but no signs of him California this yet and no signs as of November by the chargers camp right now then this one is going to go on for a while the two sides basically have their own stances. There have differing pains. Nobody Gordon's value. I don't see this getting south anytime this summer I I think this one looks like it has a real chance to go into the regular season. It's time for Austin Ecuador and Justin Jackson and no Michael Thomas in New Orleans still you take the reading receiver off that team. The saints have offered to make them the highest a wide receiver receiver in football. It sounds like he wants to get to a very high threshold north of twenty million dollars a year. We'll see what they can get there where the saints a willing to budge but Michael Thomas wants to become not just a highest eight wide receiver in football but the highest paid wide receiver football by a long shot right now while we wait for Julio Jones deal to potentially come in later this summer Adam sit tight we we'll come back to you as as needed. We're going to go back and talk about Ezekiel Elliott though how important is even to the cowboys he's led the N._F._l.. Rushing yards per game in each of his first three seasons the only other players to do that in the ninety nine year history of the N._F._l.. or Jim Brown and Earl Campbell perhaps you've heard of them. Both of those guys are in the hall of fame name safe to say that few running backs have ever had a better start to their careers then has Ezekiel Elliott
C.J. Anderson says Todd Gurley was 'more hurt than what we thought' when he signed with the Rams
"Then we go out to Los Angeles and interesting a little bit of clarity surrounding the Rams and Todd Gurley. And you know, listen, we set at the time after the NFC championship game. And certainly with the lack of use in the Super Bowl. Even though there was the great smokescreen at the Todd Gurley was a great get a tremendous work in the Rams and were telling everybody that that he was. That was surrounded at game being a CBS event as we saw it that it's going to get his normal workload he didn't. And now we have a little bit of clarity is a C J Anderson attitude yesterday TASR by basically, saying, no, sir. Uncertain terms that you know, he was brought in Gurley was hurt worse than they initially thought. He was. L, and I've talked about this a lot as you said when this was going on in a poll season what NFC championship the Super Bowl and all this jazz. Girly weren't getting a lot of burn, you know. And I I'm not confused. But it's interesting to me that C J Anderson would say this publicly what a cameras face when you. Show McVeigh wouldn't say this like nobody else's was saying this after the Super Bowl after you've got your rear end kicked by the pats. Nobody was saying this about growing and that for him to say, I have no beef would CJ innocent. I'm just confused. Like, why wouldn't it's more about McVay? Why wouldn't the head coach status or the organization or Todd Todd Gurley? I understand you want to make it look like an excuse. I got from the athletes perspective. I think that's it. But usually the head coach will take the heat. He'll he'll sort of the athlete doesn't look soft. But let me say it. How do you come out after you told Gurley was said tell tell everyone all week long thou Gurley was healthy. Then how do you after the game? Then say he was what you gotta say that violation of NFL rule, you gotta figure something we've seen guys kind of finagle with this a little bit. They say things certainly there's ways you could skirt as you know, you got pre-game me a little banged up. Whatever I mean, he's got some soreness in wheel in something. Something's got. Had to be surprised at CJ. Girly and say, wait a second. You you couldn't run the ball because you were sore or your compounding the problem. Are you not? I mean, he lied to begin with right, right? Because girly clearly was hurt. He the the the whole notion that that Anderson was a better match up. I mean, it's hot girl. He's a top two running back in the sport. I mean, they had some some guys say, well, even at the Rams bay none as somebody had McVeigh talking about the matchup of C, J Anderson when you just gave girly what forty five million dollar extension, or whatever it was that was it. So I mean, you mean to tell me I'm gonna take a Jim Brown out of the game. Sanders out of the to get the backup some work because the fact that it can more north-south runner. No that that to me made no sense. So we all knew what the truth was tasked. But I don't think the Rams after they told everybody at CBS after they told everybody during the course of the week leading up to the Super Bowl that Gurley was a okay one hundred percent healthy after girly basically said as well after McVeigh said at that after the game after once again having little to no work or very limited work that saying well, listen all week long. Is he was about sixty percent. Well, listen the week. I don't think they could do that. I understand they face a massive fine. I understand what you're saying. And you're spot on you are. But the thing is, you know, this the week going into the Super Bowl the narrative Rams camp was loud and clear. Yeah. That you know, what I'm going with this Todd Gurley was going to run the ball. Todd Gurley was tweet now. But she loved the team everything he's rarely go, blah, blah, blah, talk girl talk girl Todd Gurley. And really he didn't do nothing touches in the Super Bowl. He did not. But isn't that TASR when you look back at a is not a case of gamesmanship could be it could be. But it could be it didn't work. I'm not telling you that could be right because why gave the patriots an advantage in their preparations. When do you want to make sure that everyone's a ok and one hundred percent healthy you want to sit in the notion of the pats have to prepare for one hundred percent Todd Gurley. Even though the Rams DOE that he's not. I mean, let's say what what Anderson said is basically what we all thought. I mean, there's nobody walking around gonna get a lot too at Starbucks and saying listen Anderson was I can understand why girly to got limited. No use. I mean, he was one hundred percent healthy. I mean, we we all thought that game. I I don't want to I. Yes. But for me, I was a little bit. I'm going to be honest. I know out here talking. I was out a little bit confused. I wasn't buying into the injury thing. I wasn't. I wasn't. I wasn't buying it. I think I said that here several times, I remember we serve as me. I wasn't by. Now, if CJ is telling the truth, and I was dead wrong. Now. I'll be wrong. That's fine. I felt like there was more to this than the guy's got an injured knee got guys hurt because there were clusters. They were burst. He would get on the field in the AFC championship in NFC champ should say in the end in the Super Bowl where he girly looked explosive. Looked awesome and bro. Nobody nobody. I didn't see maybe I'm slightly exaggerating. The bulk of those two games I did not see any member of medical staff on the sideline near Todd Gurley. And he was the thread of the broadcast. He was the conversation from the Rams offense aside where commentators for both those games will talking about girly. My point is I we've never really sure camera autumn a lot on the sideline, but we never saw trainer or anybody from the training staff talking to him. I'm not saying it didn't happen. But we never saw. Reported see that. But I mean lot there's I mean tasks we we've all watched girly run the football. We've all watched Anderson run the football would be a case of, you know, you're taking a top three players position out of the game for guy that just came off the cow graph. Yeah. No, no. I agree with you. Thanks. I know you know, that I know I know I it's just now I believe now we have regardless of what the motivation is for CJ and got some clarity. And he even said, you know, let's girlie one say, but it was the same knee that he got that. He suffered that he had the knee injury with when it came back to college. Right. Our it's the it's that day believes spring me. I mean, they brought him in. And I understand Anderson. Ran the ball. Really? Well, he did. And he's gonna get himself a job in two thousand nineteen in the National Football League and great for C J Anderson took advantage of an opportunity, but tasks we look at that game. And you say we'll house type girly not getting touches and it very similar a not not very similar. But when you take a starter off the field as we criticize the patriots two years ago in the Super Bowl when they take a quarter off the field. That's played in your saying. Why is he not play crown on a Sunday, and no clarity about that? Right dogs act. We we still don't know exactly. What went wrong there? And everyone says it was the match. Yup. That's nonsense. What a corner bells. Defensive place that doesn't play in the Super Bowl. You look down with girly. At least we have a little bit of clarity in terms of where that me wasn't where he was. And you're right. I I guess I'm just being thick-headed. But I don't think we'll go out and lie with do that. I don't hear is nothing a game for that. You know? I mean, he's actually protecting a guy that he's competing against that was on his team. You know what? I mean, the girl he's not going to be getting excuses. Right. Well, I respect that too. And here's what here's the other thing. It didn't come back to what the Rams, you know. Why didn't because Goth was brutal? Yeah. He really was. And you could say we want Cup. Cop wasn't there? You could say anybody can say what they want about Cup. And that and I know they have great chemistry. Goths gotta be a player with or without Carly or without some. I agree with you. And that and that gave them some cover. So I mean as bad as it was that scene girly on the field TASR. There were throws a GOP needed to me. And he was clearly undone by the defensive scheme by the
LeBron James of Los Angeles Lakers says NFL owners have slave mentality
"James went after NFL owners. He was critical of NFL owners during the latest episode of the shop earlier tonight Friday night where he said NFL owners, quote have a slave mentality. In the NFL. They got a bunch of old white men owning teams, and they got the slave mentality. And it's like this is my team you do what the blank, I tell you to do all we get rid of your all. So there's more of that. I'd like to see it in its content. I watched tonight on HBO. I'm not that critical of LeBron because of the show the show's a barber shop, that's what the show's all about with celebrities celebrities hanging out in a barbershop hip. Hop stars actors people they're having fun and his executive producer and partner. Maverick carter. Also Todd Gurley was talking business and rapper ice cube. So I'm not going to sit here and analyze every word that was said in a barbershop where a bunch of guys are talking. But the key question that we need to talk about over the weekend. Because this is a big story. My good friend. Chris Moore who was on before me said that this could be a news dump over the weekend. We might forget it. I disagree because we had the government shutdown. We have bad weather on the east coast. Everyone's traveling for the holidays, we might forget about it. We won't forget about this. Because LeBron James is the most important and biggest name athlete in the country with all due respect to Jordan Tom Brady. Tiger woods. It's lebrons world right now. But I think what you have to ask. And I'll ask it for you. Is what is LeBron trying to get out of this? Why would LeBron James want to pick a fight with Robert Kraft and Jerry Jones right to white guys? Really rich owners number one in one a who do a lot and are very inclusive with African Americans. Robert Kraft, obviously does so much good all the charity work. Did he does Jerry Jones all the countless African American players that he's had who got onto greatness who love him sit in the owner's box. Why would LeBron James do this? I'm trying to figure that out eight five five two one two four two two seven. But I'll tell you why he's doing it because LeBron's branching out of basketball. He's in the real estate business. He's in the movie business. He's in the music business. He wants people to know his feelings on this. But Ken, LeBron sit down and have a deep debate. And a discussion on this topic with Jim Brown Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Bill Russell some of the leaders when it comes to the African American community in sports in our lifetime. I think you can I think what LeBron was trying to do is make a point that. There are no guaranteed contracts in the NFL. But does he. Have to use the term slave

Bonkers bonkers rant and said, it was an embarrassment to the White House. This is this is an actual news coverage. Wow. Okay. I'm doing this for everybody. Who's watching us return their volume down? You can put it back up. Again that one is. Thank you. Thoughtful play by play and political analysis. You're not because that was an assault on our White House. We're not we're not how is Alice Kanye west. The black guy hugging a white guy. Talking about things that matter in America. How is that an assault on our White House to MSNBC just just out of curiosity thoughtful play by play and political analysis? You're not because that was an assault on our White House was an assault on our White House. Definitely not a mob mentality though by the left. No. That was you're not gonna get thoughtful analysis from thoughtful play-by-play and political analysis you're not because that was an assault on our White House was an assault on our White House. I'd tell you it gets better. Listen, more MSNBC, not just Kanye west is not just an assault on our White House. Now when when Bill Clinton was getting oral sex from an intern in the Oval Office that was not an assault on our White House. We're not you can analyze some of that stuff. That was said as we warned you at the top. There was a little bit profanity. We there was actually more than you heard. We were able to believe some of it out. But there was some of it. They make it in there. That was crazy. Connie said with my favorite. Yeah. How he talked about. He had a lack of male role models in his life growing up a lot of male energy and his house. He was drawn Tanaka was because of the male he put the cap on. He felt like a guy who could play catch with his is because he didn't have that opportunity. Which was stunning when he also said, you know, a lot of African Americans out there. They don't like the again, they don't like make America great again. And the reason being if you are anything, but a white male historically life wasn't better for you than it is in the current moment. It's stunning alley. The doctor say took place, and even if the president would say, this was just supposed to be a lunch. That's an outright lie. I spoke to the White House myself several days ago, and I do, you know, unpredictable congas, and they said, guess what? So are we this was absolutely oppress went down the way, you would think actually a meeting between the president tiny west. Jim Brown was browser by the way. Kanye, west said blacks, really. Like, you get caught up in the idea of racism over the idea of industry his comment to fight. Police brutality is to release the love, and he said said there should be in Chicago easy centers, which is the namesake of his Adidas sneakers. He said that the Naga sentiment is what gave him the balls to go for it and make so much money. I'm just stunned across the board. You I thought we were going to have a I thought they were going to have a conversation which we would follow up on in part on criminal Justice reform sentencing and prisons, which is by the way, a bipartisan really important idea. There was that was mostly nonsense. That was mostly nonsense because that man black man was conservative. That was an assault on our White House. Immediately after Conway, Wes. Oval office. Wow. Now is bonkers. If you thought you were going to get thoughtful play by play in political analysis, you're not well, we knew that. It's you guys MSNBC because that was an assault on our White House. You can't analyze some of that stuff. That was crazy. Thank you for that thoughtful analysis, which you promised us you not going to give us Shawna. You are on the marklevinshow Ben Ferguson, filming in Hello. Hey, ben. How's it going doing? Well, how are you? Doing good. I just wanted to say that as a as a black woman, a young black woman. I am so incredibly proud of Kanye west. He's speaking for the people like myself who are the the super styling majority. Right. I mean, there's like eight percent of us. There's something crazy. And and I think that there's more out there. And I think that we're winning we are actually winning. That's why the left is going berserk. That's why the the mainstream media is going bonkers as they called him because they know that if we get just a few percentage points more of the black vote it's over for them. It doesn't matter. They can say whatever they want to say they can keep pushing that that racist talking point that the Republicans are racist. People like myself are waking up, and I'll tell you something Ben I'm thirty three years old. I was born and raised a lifelong democrat. I was a liberal. I was an idiot. Okay. Ate up. All of that crap that they said me my whole life, which was that. You know, I couldn't get ahead that I would never be treated equally. I've never felt more loved than when I went to south haven, Mississippi, and I went to a Trump rally, and I wore that make America great again hat, and I totally your uncle, Tom. Now, you need to go to a mental hospital you need to go to a mental hospital right away. Right. Well, I'll tell you what you know, what mental hospital is better than the democrat plantation. And you know, what they look how quickly they turn on you. When you don't agree with what they say. And the sad thing about it is is the Macari sellers. What's really sad is? He's the slate. He's the person that they put up there to lie. The all of us for their vote. I disagree with that. I think I think he is a leader in the Democratic Party because he's able to marginalize until black people that they can't you can't disagree with the Democratic Party or you are going to be an uncle, Tom. And you're not going to be accepted in your communities. You're not going to be accepting your church, you're not to be. Except in your neighborhoods. But Ben, I'm talking to more and more black people. I'm getting out there. And I'm saying, thanks. I'm talking to people and people are starting to wake up it's little by little and you kind of have to probe them and ask them questions and things like that. But people are starting to say Trump's not that bad. He's not the racist that people keep lying and saying that he is your you ought to look at you ought to look at the just my scrolling down my Twitter feed right now, people that are listening to this show tonight who are telling me that they actually believe that Kanye west should be in a mental hospital. Mental health shaming someone the day after world mental Health Day. When Democrats tell me they care about mental health needs should never shame. Anybody to shame someone and use mental health to shame a person. They have no souls. They have no soul. And it's okay. If they do it. It's okay. If they do it. But if we slip up, and we say one thing then they're gonna crucify twenty four seven on. And it's bad. It's bad. Because you know, they run the media. They really do. We have a few people like yourself in the Mark Levin that are telling the truth. But for the most part, you know, they're they're bought and paid and they're on their and their brainwashing. People twenty four hours a day. And the fact the matter is look at the black community. All you have to do is open your eyes and see I live in Memphis, Tennessee, run by Democrats in a mess, and you can go to every single democrat city. Black people have got to wake up. They've gotta wake up and see for us to continue to vote for one party. It makes no sense on planet earth. When that party has done nothing for your school system done nothing for the prison system. It's done nothing for fathers, the lack of fathers in the home, the welfare state, and and people are gonna eventually wake up, and they're gonna look around and say. This party has never done anything for me. And when I did that I'm gonna tell you something Ben it changed my entire life. The moment. I was read to God bless you. Sean. Thank you. Great to talk to you. You know, you talk about unhinged. I got an article send to me earlier says you and your dog can now p all over Donald Trump, thanks to statues. They're set up in Brooklyn.

The former football great, you know, one of the greatest players ever. He's going to be with Cardi, apparently when they meet with Donald Trump because they both are Trump supporters, and they both have things to say about what's going on in the African American community and Donald Trump has talked to up. Okay. So that's the setup. Take a listen to what went down on CNN in regards to Conyers going to the White House. Listen to this. I issue with Kanye west is quite simple missed that anti-intellectualism simply isn't cool and Kanye west these issues, as you stated these issues that they're going to talk about our issues that are.

"Living room with sunny hill last week. We had Dr David topa Laskey. And he was talking about prostate cancer. And. I had mentioned to him and to you my radio listening audience what my ritual was in terms of trying to stay on top of it. And getting your your information to your doctor and getting your blood test all those kind of things so I had going in. But my blood tests, and I got my blood test back and my blood tests ended up being thank you very much. Very good. So that goes over to my doctor per Cal. So that he can evaluate it. And make sure that you my radio listening audience paying attention to your health. And by way of that is let you know that when we bring you good information, and we are able to do what needs to be done within the framework of that information. Maybe that will encourage you my radio listening audience to be able to do the same. So make sure you go in and have yourself tested and do the kind of thing. That you need to do and refuse to prostate cancer. I had mentioned the fact that this is the beginning of the thirty second year that I've been here at WIP. And with that I thought for a period of time, I will give you a little background and reference to how it all got started some of the people that have been a part of the many different shows that we've done. How they in turn have been instrumental in helping me to be able to bring to you. Information not only from sports, but from life itself and other things and taking the opportunity to make you aware. That if you say that you're going to do something. That you can stick to it. And do it by that. I mean, I've been here for thirty two years. I have never missed a show. And that's a part of who. I am what I do. And how I do it. Not only in terms of what I do here. But what I do with my everyday life commitment and then follow through. For example. When I started here thirty two years ago. Our radio station was located one thousand nine hundred Sampson. And I had a show at that point. That was between the hours of eleven and one. And it was actually a dead period. There was no real following to any large degree. And I was fortunate enough that I was able to pick up. You Maria listening audience and having a tremendous following. Of you over the years. And then you'd say to yourself. Oh, how did all get started sunny? Well. The tremendous human being was here who happened to be a person that identified with and we had a good understanding would never a relationship at that point. But actually we had worked together. At CBS when I was doing the NBA basketball games there. In his name is Tom Brookshire. Wearing number forty full of Philadelphia Eagles and bringing the would we were just talking about eagle players that brought the wood will Tom Brookshire. Brought to would. And. Tom along with his group headed up by its Snyder. Took me on the way. And asked me what I like to be a part of what they were doing here, which was the beginning to a large degree of what we now referred to as talk sports radio. And I explained to both Tom and Ed that hey, I'd like to be a part of it. So Tom said to me, what would you like to do? And how would you like to do it? I came up with this idea of the living room because I was thinking back to how conversations were back in the day. And back in the day when you had a conversation in your household. You had them and you living room. And when you had conversations in your living room back in the day as a youngster myself. You are not allowed to hear growing folks talk because it was wrong fo- conversation. But I always thought about the fact that you can have that kind of dialogue. And if you bought that kind of dialogue to a format. That it might be something that you my radio listing Gordon's would gravitate to what you have. So we were able to set up the concept. Of the living room, and then being able to have people come in initially. And being a part of that. For example. This is the thirty second year of the program. It also ties in with. The first player that I can identify with. That wore the number thirty two which is now a very popular number in sport. And that player's name is Jim Brown. And Jim has been in the living room on a number of occasions. Now, you think about this? When Jim Brown was at Syracuse, awarded number forty four. Which is a famous number to be worn as a running back at Syracuse university. I did not get the opportunity. And when I do see Jim I will find out why he decided that thirty two would be the number. And then that number would pass on to be one of the more popular numbers worn by athletes. Another athlete of that era. Wore the number thirty two I should put it out there for you. My listening audience to say give me a call and reference to who that player is. I will I will that was another player. Who wore the number thirty two and sport. He word in sport. Do you know the name of that player who also help to make the number thirty two extremely popular. Now along with that. We had a lot of early guests. Each week when I came on. I would be reaching into. The many different people that I had met. That I interacted with. And people that I knew. For the early shows. Mostly about baseball. Because you think about it thirty two years back baseball was king. So it was the cold store. Era. So in the wintertime, they would gather round what they refer to as the coal stove, and it would be up between these two had hot stove conversation about baseball. So baseball was a sport. At that point. That was basically twelve months of the year. So along with that I was able to have in the living room. Roy campanella. On a number of occasions. And for you who are listening in the area, ROY Campanella number thirty nine. From grass high school right here in Philadelphia. Started playing in the negro league. Three-time MVP and the National League had a short career to fold in baseball. Because of the fact that he didn't get a chance to come in until late by twenty six twenty seven and then was in a car accident cut his career short, ROY Campanella. Don newcombe. Also, a part of my early conversation in the living room. Joe black. Another the baseball players from the Brooklyn Dodgers. Ernie banks. Robin roberts. Sweet Lou Williams from the cargo cubs. Hank aaron. And Larry Doby just to name a few from that point of view. They were very instrumental in helping me to establish what I was doing at that point. And I would be remiss if I didn't mention the sweet man himself Sugar Ray Robinson. And another gentleman who was very instrumental in my early shows and taught me a lot of history of negro league baseball. He's no longer with us. Name is Mr. gene Benson. Some of you old timers know who I'm talking about from the negro league. He also told me very clearly. He said Sonny. The Willie Mays catch the basket catch Willie popularize. Mr. gene Benson. Did that in the negro league? And when I speak about Willie Mays. I'm at the studio on nineteenth. And since then and Willie Mays comes in as a guest and Willie Mays was my hero. My baseball hero and my sports hero. And I get a chance to meet Willie Mays personally embrace Willie Mays. And give him a tremendous hug, and he back to me. And I ended up having a relationship with Willie Mays that is a part of the journey..
