"Integrating the End Zone"

"Previously on the Tony. Kornheiser show amazing. That you are able to still do it just on the phone and So keep doing it. You're cute bring me smile. Tell you this I'm in my attic. Which is if the camera widened out. And you see what dump it is. I'm my wife is doing my makeup. I my beard is. I'M GONNA get like Letterman. I now look Brian like something that crawled out of obermann couch and I should not be on television. The Tony Kornheiser show is on now or is Howard cosell. One said he's unsightly and he said that about me. I remember that pretty well. The Corona virus can do a lot of terrible things. Obviously but one thing. It doesn't do this. Terrible visit apparently is not attacking tulips tulips in Washington. Dc or are out everywhere. You Walk Around. The neighborhood and people have tulips very very very lovely. Makes me happy this is today? Starting today is traditionally the greatest week in sports the NHL in the NBA have their playoffs. Basically set they may have finished the season by now. They haven't started the playoffs or they're in the last couple of games but everything is set. And you know what's going to happen? Baseball has started bringing energy to a tremendous amount of people who love baseball tonight Monday night. This is the final game in the NCAA's and then on Thursday the master starts and it's in effect the beginning of spring all around the country. It's the single greatest weekend sports and we have none of it. We've absolutely none of it and a you know a somebody who's a sports writer my whole life whether or not I'm on television podcast. I'm a sports writer. I have the clock of a sports writer and I just don't know what to do. David Aldridge is with us. David is younger than I but David has the clock of a sports writer his entire life. This is the best week. What are you going to do? I guess we're all going to sit in the Tony so like I sitting in last not what I want is not what any of us want. But they alternative is not a pleasant so so we have to do this and think about Tommy really. What are they asking you to do sit at home and watch TV You know not the biggest hardship in the history of tied It said that people don't get their sports I know that sports isn't brain surgery but it does matter to people it's important to people And especially now. It's important people because they want something else to think about for an hour to And I think for everybody's mental health it would be nice to have some sports back. But you know you can't have. You can't always get what you want. Some bad said that I can't remember rolling stones. Baby the rolling stones. Yeah your new favourite fan. Not Familiar with them. Yeah can you Can you work are? Can you work working? We're working we're trying Very hard to do different things You know we try to engage the raiders with some types of you know it's a lot of lists and things like that had Jersey numbers. You're you know every cities faith you know most important. Jersey numbers Mount Rushmore. And things like that. We're trying to do things with players. I did an interview with C. J. mccollum last week from the trailblazers about what he's doing to try and stay in shape. You know In the different things that he's doing now that they don't have the routine misset. Calendar mean athletes are creatures of schedule. They are what what to do where to be and they show up. They show up to work out to play this show up to an event where fans shop to catch the plane. You know I mean so. They must be going nuts with no schedule. You know this really. There's it's it's all on them and then they spend time with their families which you know most of them like I say in the abstract but when it every day like most of us she kinda go. When are we going to San Diego again? You know it's You know it's a challenge for them. It's very different world. I remember when Gary Williams Stop Coaching at Maryland. And Gary had four. I Dunno David Forty years maybe more starting as a player he had had the same sort of November December January February march every year and he was lost is lost and I you know. Of course you understand that because you have the athletes have this the internal body clock that says and now. It's time that I do this. And then that doesn't exist anymore. The work the work that you do the work that athletic does. I assume. It's all on the phone. Although I guess if you were a beat writer this would be driving you crazy. I said Oh sure sure. And it's it's telling Tony that a lot of the younger a lot of our younger writers You know they're not really familiar with the idea of working the phones. You know down the foreign concept to them like what do you mean? Get on the phone calling people. How do I do that so you have to kind of walk them through it? This is what you have to do you. You know. In our day we had we had rolodexes and phone in our phone books. And we look you know. Went through call people's numbers Adam stuff. That's what you gotTa do now. You can't just depend on showing up in front of people and and being able to do the work and kind of a scrum like most people do now and you know they were trying to get people to see that. There's a different way of doing it. There's another way of doing it that that can be affected. Mccollum's a bright kid. He went to Lee high. I've I've been impressed with him when I've seen him talk is he. I don't know if you got to this. Is he optimistic or pessimistic about when this renews again? So there sports well I mean. I think we talked a little bit about it because he's on the Executive Committee of the Players Union president. So we did talk about it a little bit and you know there. Everybody's got all these ideas but the calendar is the calendar and at some point. You don't have enough day you know. And and we're we're rapidly getting to that point with with you know all the winter sports whether it's the NBA or hockey. Or you know any of the other ones Can't be playing this year schedule in October. You know what I mean like. You have to go onto the next season at some point right. That's right Oh that's the dilemma. For All the sports leagues all the winter. Sports Leagues is. Do we have enough days to get in a representative playoffs? I don't think you have to do any. I don't think you have to have any more regular season games. I mean he played sixty five. I'm not quite sure how many hockey played but I would imagine. Hockey was even further in its schedule than the NBA was so. I don't think you even have to go back to have any type of regular season. This is like a lockout here to me. I mean they've had lockout years with sixty six games with seventy games and they had representative champions As long as you're playoffs. Are you know realistic And have a good number of games but you have to have a certain number of days to accomplish that playoff and you know. I think it's two months it. Maybe they can do it in less than two months. Maybe make the first round shorter. I've advocated going back to the mini series. This year. You remember that back in eighty two on first round. I'm not not because of anything other than you need to gain a week. Somewhere in the schedule you know and so The the dates you know if we get if we get back to the point where people can go back into arenas The days are difficult in the summer. Because that's when all the other things are scheduled you know that that can't be played during the NBA NHL regular seasons when in many arenas you know team sharing arena there every other night. It's the basketball game hockey game in college basketball. You know and so the things that you know. You have concerts in the summer. So those days are there too and they went to have their events as well so you just don't have a whole lot of day to get this accomplished. There are so many People who sit around and and officially sit around the league's want them to sit around and they sort of plan out what we could do. If we had this many days or that many days and would we isolate? Everybody would put everybody in hotels in Las Vegas and it goes on and on and on and on but the clock keeps ticking right and and you you know there does come a point where you say to yourself. You know what the season's done is done. And we're GONNA move onto the next one because you just you know that there's there's a there's a realism to what is going on that intrudes on on these various scenarios all of which are well intentioned and all of which are indeed commissioned by the leaks. Of course they are right right exactly and you know again you know. Nobody talks about okay. What happens if you if you start up again and you have a you have a second wave that's over you shut down. Now what are you going to have a team with four players play a game? Come on can't do that. You know what I mean so. That's the dilemma is that as fouled. She said you know the virus set the calendar. Not You you know that's right tells you when it's over you know so until until we have that. I don't know how you can possibly plan with any type of confidence that you're going to actually be able to accomplish it. No no I. I totally agree so you have. Do you have teenage kids at home? You have high school students at home. Have they tied you up and put you in your attic? I mean are you with them all the time or do you ever say I'd get out of here. Leave me alone. I mean actually work. It's been this way for a while. you know one of the first things that I wanted to do. When we moved into this house was finished. This attic was nice face And it was unfinished So do you do that yourself? Are you a do it yourself person all no no no because no no we had the you know renovate it had people come in and I gave him my money and And and so I have worked up here for a while. I had an office in one of the rooms that now assume younger sons bedrooms. You know had to have somewhere where it could work. Um So worked up here. And when it was with Turner they had a you know they had put a TV Cameron up here so that we can do live shots from up here Right so I'm just Kinda used to working up here so let's work that well and the kids are downstairs on their computers doing their remote learning. I guess what they're calling it but the schools are trying to do and so far so good. I'm Dianne works downstairs as well So it's worked out okay. This weekend was it was the first week and they've been on for three weeks and really every day. I find that this weekend was one of the first times that was really like love. You guys but yeah no weekends I mean for me. Weekends are harder because I don't have something to do now. It's just I just don't have anything to do. I have I do the podcast in the dining room. I do the television in the attic. I said to my accountant last week. You better write this stuff off next year which is on this. You know I'm here doing all this stuff now. Closed their yes and has been for almost a month yet. There's just there's nothing there's really sort of nothing and I walk out. I walk in the streets. I've been I have a mask but I have to say that when I've used it outside when I've used it to be honest. It makes me lightheaded I I. I'm not you know I'm not good with it but I do stay. I really do stay away from others. I'm out with the dog most of the time and just walk around other people and they walk around. Also you know you don't like people so there you go so it works. It works out the only thing that would be better is if I had the ability as people drove up and down my street to just stop them randomly. Kick them off the street. That would make me really stand to do civilian with people walking Raynham now. They're the only thing that that that has disturbed me about. The walkers is the younger ones of course on bicycles. WanNa get as close to us. They can in just one. Hey backup we get. Get away from me. I'm actually trying to get away from you. Because you're the one carrying this thing get Outta here quilmes. Exactly you sound good. I'll talk to you soon. Thank you David. County my pleasure. Thank you to David Aldridge. Boys and girls. We will take a break. We'll come back with Wilbon. We'll bonds out in Arizona. Whoa there are now nine states. That don't tell you that you have to stay at home. All the time Ryan Arizona is no longer one of them. I mean South Carolina still gives you the ability to walk around Arizona. Not so much so we'll talk to. Wilpon when we return. I'm Tony Kornheiser. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. This is the policy genius. Add there are things that we look back on we think. How did I get it so wrong? It might be wearing multiple Polo shirts. And popping all the collars. I never really did that dating that one person that one time you know that one. I don't know what was going to things wrong. That's just life but they're also things we can get right on the first try light shopping for home insurance and that's where policy genius comes in head to policy genius Dot Com. Answer a few questions about yourself and your property then policy genius will compare your policy against options from top insurers to make sure you're getting the right home insurance coverage of the best possible price. They save their customers in average of six hundred ninety dollars per year. Just doing that. If policy genius finds you a better rate than what you're currently paying. They will do all the work to get. You switched Yona cars well policy genius will compare your home and auto policies across different insurers and even mix and match savings. That's good. That sounds good so even if you look back on your triple denim days in distress you'll never be distressed about home insurance policy genius in just a few minutes. You can find your best price in a pie. Apply rather at policy genius Dot Com. We all get things wrong from time to time. At least we can get home insurance right with policy genius. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser. Show County Gordon Gun and Dan. Bern always makes us happy Dan. Bern dropped a couple of albums he said last week. One about baseball called rivalry and you played some songs from that and the other albums. Call Corn teammate. Pretty sure you know what that one is about. This is still the quarantine is through. He's very wonderful Dan. Bern he's on the show story songs like very much. Michael Wilbon joins us now. There are nine states in America as I said earlier. That allow you freedom to do what you WANNA do. And I think Arizona is in the many more South Carolina's still is Iowa's still is I don't think Arizona is are you in shutdown or no. There's something in between. It's not the shutdown that I'm hearing about other places having and there was not the shutdown say Illinois as or Maryland or Virginia. But it's you know it's not full freedom a lot of things that people don't my God why haven't they this and things each era Zona so We're sort of in the middle of that town you're supermarkets are good. There's food everywhere everywhere. I'm not the guy in the house but I'm you know target one evening for something. I can't remember what it was. I started at seven PM. It was empty in terms of people that that happened. Say in markets with this is a big market its biggest. That isn't happening city in cities where you have density and you have a target. You don't you don't happen to be 'cause I know just because I've talked to people that I I'm wondering what is like where they are. You know I got family members. Bob knows everywhere and I was talking with Texas with the ones that had land to last night. Just for instance and they were like what are you talking about? The you know? We don't we don't have that and you know density Cincinnati is a is a huge part of this and sort of being caught it or the ability to avoid it. And I'm in a place with no just just no density. What's away yeah Scottsdale Arizona. So I remember you know talking to my friend. Dr Eighty Cornwell More than three weeks ago and he said in city is the enemy. Trust me on this and I called him back on just you. You nailed this. Because that's what he was one of the people I call Tony. I said we're should I ride this out? And he said you got the place in Arizona. Go there 'cause you'll want to ride it out here and that again back to the beginning of this and it was just like every day watching reports. I'm watching. There's watching that I think that so I'm not GonNa say the grocery stores this is still you know. The United States of America and people are afraid and people are. We have the hoarding. It seems you can go to the store here and it seemingly get what you need for the most part But we're we're wouldn't two thousand miles from the epicenter of this. That's this is an interesting concept what I noticed and you grew up in Chicago and I grew up right outside New York City These are vertical cities Washington is not. It's not a vertical city. I live inside the district line and I live in. What is you know a fairly leafy neighborhood? I mean they're no apartment houses real close to me or anything like that. There's no particular verticality and I always noticed that when I came to Washington for the first time to work at the Washington Post and I just you know I used to. I used to have that quizzical stare when I looked around and I go. I'm not used to this city. This does not look like a city to me. Did you have that same sense when you first got here? I know because Chicago's not as vertically New York and you had like we. We lived in a house in the neighborhood. My neighborhood wasn't leafy That I grew up in Chicago. Chicago's different he where we know. There's just there's there's no place Not Not in America like New York Yeah but but but but it is. Chicago's sort of it. It's a great. It's like a combination of the two different areas and Parkland and the jury verdict. When people when I read people talked about the next hot spot in Washington and Chicago are two places that are often enlisted in that. Yeah that's not where some what I'm looking for but I can't I can't go to Delaware and ride it out. I mean you're not even allowed this remarkable thing. You're told I know you have a second home here and I know you pay taxes here but don't come please. Don't come thank you. Maybe cash next tax check. Wow that you know this sort of end mission that you know. We're not the point where we don't want you. That's a hard thing to hear right now when people are in I mean it's it's dire. It's already dire. Let's move on. Let's move on and we won't dwell on this and we'll talk about at this the sad thing but I mean Bobby Mitchell who passed away. Bobby Mitchell was eighty four years old. He was for people in Washington very heroic figure and a very close friend to your family. I. I was trying to do the math today. You pretty much have to be almost sixty five and up either. My age of Cindy bornes age. You have to be that old to have watched Bobby Mitchell play and have a sense of what he did. I mean I'm barely in there and I understand what the team Jim Brown and Jim Brown was a tremendous hero to me. So yes I have a sense of it but boy oh boy to tell people what Bob Mitchell did as a player you know. It's almost impossible to tell them. They're just they don't they. Don't get it right. Nobody gets anything about history anymore. I mean PEO people under fifty no interest in. Es I'm generalizing. I don't care interested in anything that happen before this morning so they don't care about any talk that long ago and I do Bobby Mitchell someone who who who while he did not grow up with Arkansas he with the School of the University of Illinois And he went to Bobby Mitchell and Dick Butkus and remix Sqi Are still those famous names at the University of well red grange at the University of Illinois and when I got to Washington and I started I started covering the redskins writing columns and the redskins bobby. Mitchell was the assistant general manager. So I am and I knew that I mean I. I knew of his history. I knew he was the first black redskin. At least the first person signed. I think they were. Actually there. Were three men who actually played that first game together in nineteen sixty. Three and So I knew Barry Mitchell. I knew what he'd done. I was with Jim Brown. I I knew those things and then Tony. Twenty years into my well. Yeah close to it into my life in Washington I date and then marry someone who calls Bobby Mitchell uncle bobby. That that's how close moe my the family married it to both Mitchell. I mean literally. My father-in-law has been besties two decades and so all the salt. It was SORTA weird awkward at Burs. I am you know covering Bobby Mitchell and then again. His uncle bobby in the House that I'm living it and I got to know him. I got because my father-in-law earlier I I played golf with them. I mean we talk. We sat we ate we. He's one of them. Just most tremendous people I've ever met and You know the great most Seagal told me this story One Night About going to buy he was doing column for The Washington Star and the night before. Bobby Mitchell supply his first game with the redskins having essentially been ordered By by Robert. Kennedy Bobby Kennedy basically said to George Preston Marshall. You'll have black players this season coming or we will put you out of the stadium. That's paid for with taxpayer money. Many of them black and the District of Columbia. That was happening here and so Babi Mitchell is would would most seagal at dinner Connecticut Avenue Tony and it might have been doing. Mos- guy comes over. He Interrupts Mall and Bobby having been Saturday night a Saturday night before Sunday. Game as excuse me. You didn't new redskins Bobby Mitchell. And Bobby says yes and the extends his hand so it was most. Seagal they stand up and the guy spits on. Bobby shoot you know you know. Welcome to town. Yeah Yeah you know stories like this but you don't think you know people that this happened to again. Get most people telling me this story. You know what I'm in my. I don't know late twenties. It's probably by the way probably not Joan knows it's probably dukes. They probably went to Dukes. Maybe it was down. Yeah you know I got to know bobby and you know people wanNA think of Washington. It's always unbelievable to me. The WASHINGTONIANS will say stuff like that. I don't want to cross the bridge. Go to Virginia. I don't WanNa live over there. That's the south Washington. Dc could be awful place for Black Person Buddy. Mitchell faced real bad stuff. They had to deal with he and his family and I know his family and I heard today for the win. His his his wife just a wonderful person and one of my mother laws. Very best friends and bobby was not bitter. He reminds you know. There are people who can't stand that and they get out of it and it's going to be traded. Outta here even even then there were limited options for somebody then with contracts and the culture of sport the way it was Mitchell. Faith bad stuff and Metropolitan DC. I know of it. I know the stories and he was just a wonderful man and he. You know one of the place where he pays bad stuff was Washington redskins. 'cause he should have been the general manager. I mean should have been the general manager in the nineteen eighties. It wasn't and he was. He was denied the chance. So I you know you know you know I. I am no ever never been a redskins fan. Ever 'cause I didn't grow up so it doesn't matter but part of it is. I know I know stuff that wasn't discussed in the nineties and the arts and now and Bobby yes was greatly accepted there. He is a hero to people like Darryl Green and Doug Williams and Joe Thighs men. You know a hero to them and you know. I know how much Sunny Jorgensen loves. Bobby Mitchell and sunny would hurt. I've seen tears and Sonny's is when Bobby Mitchell's Passover for stuff and this is stuff that I wanNA talk about it that they consider it a long time ago. They're not here. Washington yeah Washington. So it's interesting that that Shirley Povich the Great Shirley povich crusaded for much of his life to have a certain quality on playing fields. And Shirley got disgusted in the sixties. I think the line was somewhere in the early sixties where he talked about the fact that so and so and it may have been Jim Brown and may have been bobby Mitchell or maybe someone else. I don't know who exactly he was referring to. But he talked about the fact that so and so integrated the end zone. Four Times yesterday was based on the banned from the press box from attention doing that while. See and that's interesting because the press box is now named for who will bond who's at four surely Polish. Yeah so there. There's there's history. There's there's history. History is undeniable in history needs to be studied as you say people today. Don't history for them as last week last week and so you know though Bobby Mitchell just just unbelievably dignified gentle soul. I was. He was a great football player. Bobby Mitchell head games. That were insane. Bobby Mitchell gives you look up his first game for the Redskins. We'd have like a rushing touchdown receiving touchdown and the ninety return. Yeah I mean. He had unbelievable game twice sleep. We knew large in large parts on he did not. He's a great great player and much like the players who played against Michael Jordan in the main having played for Bobby Mitchell with Jim Brown. Jim Brown's the greatest so it doesn't matter how good you are. It doesn't Yeah Jim Price. The greatest you're in the shadow of Tim Brown that they could trade for him and now but ball in certain quarters thought it needed and then again one of the things just incredible sitting around just listening to to uncle. Bobby was him talking about his friendship with Robert Kennedy and Robert Kennedy would come and just call him and say I'm GonNa come pick you up and they needed to talk. They weren't sure what was going on with the phones in one thousand nine hundred sixty three four five. He would come by and pick up Bobby Mitchell at his house and they would drive and talk unbelievable. Yeah that's wonderful. It's a wonderful story body. It's great man. Eighty four years old. Ardell talk to you later from the attic. Okay right sounds good Michael. Wilbon boys and girls. We will take a break Jonathan.

Kornheiser show radio for the day is a song from. I think the best rock and roll movie ever that thing you do Tom Hanks's all over this thing. Just a wonderful wonderful movie. The leaders from Erie Pennsylvania Force. Niger wire where we have some. We have a sad reason for playing this even though it's such a good upbeat song. Yeah we love this song and we do love this movie as many happy trails to Adam. Schlesinger the musician mostly known as the basis for the group fountains of Wayne But in the early goings of that man he wrote this song. Sor personal exercises. That didn't think it would be selected by the producers to To be in the movie but Lo and behold it was so he was actually one of the backups. This song Are The are the people who sing? This song are they. The actors are the actors lip synching to this. The actors lip synching was a book by name of Mike Viola. I don't think he's interrelation of Frank Viola who saw that string music francophile great handed pitcher born on. Long Island by the way long island boy yet Franco but yes or no Mike Viola and Adam Schlesinger We're seeing on this one forum. Tremendous Adam sadly passed away last week. So we bring in Jonathan Karl and and he is one of the White House. Correspondents Lead White House correspondent for ABC News and works in the same building That I work in except that I now work in my attic and I so I should ask you this. He's written a book called front row at the trump show and we will talk a lot about that but how how is your work is the ABC News Building. Open it. Does it have a lot of activity. How is your physical work now John? Well the ABC News Washington bureau is open but it is a ghost town. And you know and I'm spending a good chunk of my time at home. I've got a little makeshift studio here in my office that consists of An iphone on a tripod and a light and an old flip phone that I used to get my You know the my ISP My earpiece But when I go into the bureau. It's I mean we have a skeletal. There is basically nobody in there except for you know security guard and you know somebody manning the news desk. Yeah that's I mean I haven't been in in weeks and there's no point. I now have a camera in the Attica. My House and there's no point in me doing it. I don't know about you but I assume I assume that the life of a political writer is not altogether dissimilar from the life of a sports writer. And you travel in packs and you have friends and you crave collegiality and I miss that so much and I wonder if you do. Oh absolutely I mean you know we. And and it's it's also it's with your because we do travel in packs. He spent a Lotta time with your competitors. So I've traveled all over the world all over the country with my colleagues from NBC and CBS CNN. New York Times The Associated Press All. Those people are my. These are my great friends. We've experienced You know we've experienced some incredible things together. We compete like hell against each other but but we are but we're really good friends. Now I do Tony go to the White House still although I am trying to spend as little time as possible there it it it's It's a strange experience because we you know. The president is having his daily press conferences. I go into the White House they take your temperature before you get into the White House grounds. They'd take your temporary again before you walk into the briefing room Which is Great? I find it went on. I have a fever. It doesn't tell me a damn thing about whether or not me or any of my colleagues coronavirus virus But it's it's an odd experience because you really you really just don't know you know a how safe the places let let me get to that and again. John's book is called front row with the trump show which is a really good title. I really liked the title. I have noticed in some of these briefings and I've read about it as well at the press corps seems to be thinning out and I wondered. Are they thinning out? Because of the fear of a particular illness or they thinning out because they have this sense that that this is the same every single day. I don't particularly think it's truthful and I'm not going to be here. Well it it it. It's more the Frankly it's more the The former I am also the president of the White House Correspondents Association which means that what what I've had to try to do is find a way for the White House press corps to continue to cover this story but to do it in a way that ensures that were not all killing ourselves and we continue to cover the story So we have actually taken some absolutely unprecedented steps The the the White House press room. Which is that you've been over there. I mean it's small. It's a small room But it is there forty nine seats and usually if you're there for a press briefing got especially one that includes the president and especially this president. It is every seat is taken and then you have people jammed in the aisles jammed in the back. It's one of the most crowded places you can imagine so we have had to take steps to say to our colleagues and to ourselves. Don't come unless you absolutely have to come. And we are now limiting the number of people who are allowed to come into that room during a briefing to fourteen reporters. We only have two people each one of those rows and we all take turns And you know even even like the big networks were not in there every day And and we take turns. Now you know the briefings we can get into the substance. There are certainly some huge issues there but but people are staying away as much as they can and some major news organizations have decided decided this a couple of weeks ago simply not to comedy more because they thought it was an unnecessary risk. So you know you covering the president of the United States and you can't you know that's it's a really. It's not that you're not allowed to. It's that conditions are terrible. And you know in in a lot of ways if you spend all this time with the president of the United States you are violating social distancing to a degree. You know you're surrounded but think about this. This is for for for most of us. The biggest story of our lives and and and do not be able to go there and and cover it. And you're right you look up at the at the podium and you see I mean. They've gotten a little better at this. Because we we've we're now we said so far apart. We're we're six feet apart. I mean you know it's we're pretty much in compliance we're not totally in compliance because the CDC says no gatherings of more than ten people are recommended so we have more than but we're pretty much in compliant put up at the podium the president's all jammed in there with with arguably the most important people in the country right now the ones heading the task force their shoulder to shoulder the oddest thing in my life. I look at that and I think well. Here's the Anthony Fauci -I in whom I have complete trust and he's being flanked by two people and I'm thinking you shouldn't probably be that close. It's like the supermarkets there are supermarkets that. Say if you're my age if you're seventy and up you can go there at a certain time and you can get all the food that you want except that they line you up. I don't want to be in that line. You know I just think that's insane. I think it's counterproductive anyway. The book I should ask this because I've written books while having written books collected stuff in my life. I don't actually write too much to ask but yours is written front row at the trump show and there's a schedule the way things are written in the way things are published in the way things come out and you all of these things were set long before there was any notion of a pandemic and I'm sort of wondering is a good time for book to come out or a bad time for book to come out. I mean I that my books release date would be March thirty first a year ago. No idea that this would be happening. It is it is a really strange time to be out with a book and I think this book is the most important work of my professional life. I mean I really I really put everything into it and You know I'm I'm I'm proud of it. I WANNA get out and I wanNA talk about it. I'd I'd scheduled all kinds of events To get out with with people and and you know and sign books talk to people answer questions gotta sell a baby. That's what you do. You GotTa Know Yeah and I was really passionately looking forward to it and let me tell you. We had one hell of a book party plan to in Washington and all that all that stuff canceled And it's You know I've I've done a lot of virtual events and I've learned a lot about things. like crowd cast and zoom and Instagram lives and all that stuff that I never really had dealt with before and and and that's been that's been interesting but it's it's such a strange thing. All the bookstores are closed. You Know Barnes and nobles you can order and do curbside pickup But by and large you know every bookstore in the country is is is closed. And it's been so it's been. It's been bizarre an in terms and then there's the question of the of the story itself. I mean I wrote this. There was a review of the Guardian. Did a review of my book yesterday and they call it call it a pre pandemic warning and I think there's something to that I it. Oddly my book which tells the story first and foremost in my experience covering this bizarre you know the thing that the country has gone through over the past five years from a very unique vantage point as somebody who has known Donald Trump for twenty six years and now is right there in the middle of it all But in some ways it is it feels more relevant than ever Because it it you see all the themes that I go through in. The book played out in vivid color. Almost to a cartoonish extreme Every day and the way he's handled this crisis. If my book had come out landed in the middle of the impeachment trial you know it. It would have felt a little bit off because I didn't spend hardly any time at all on that stuff. I mean I. I didn't get into the Ukraine a little bit but not much but I got into. How trump operates his relationship with the troupe. Truth the the way the people around him try to try to steer him or not steer him his management style or lack of a management style and all of it is playing out right right as we see is in in this crisis. It's it's so interesting we all When you write a book I've said this a million times in the main yearbook editor doesn't really help you edit the book. He's there she's there to sign you up and encourage you and give you an advance and pat you on the head a lot but the editing. It's always self editing or you're bringing somebody who's a good friend and you say please don't spare me just make sure it's as good as it can be. And then the great moments are the book parties or the signings or the interviews. I mean they're great. They're they're great fun even if they're even even if you think they're hard to do and if you think you're they're hard to do your fool because this is the greatest fun in the world and you you produce as you say you produce the most important work of your life and you know you don't have that. I mean I feel as somebody who's going through this is not to know I had the good. I didn't have the bad and so I feel badly that you miss out on that and you sort of have to scramble to do it another way just to get the word out. Yeah I mean it's you know first of all it's hard to even Feel a little sorry for for myself when you see the pain that people are going through. It's nothing but but I have to tell you. This was the this. I was preparing for this and done all this and the other thing is I was planning the White House. Correspondents Dinner which I wanted to ask about that. I got cable for ESPN. I got us a table. And now it's and we're going to have comedians. We were going to almost go back to the way it was right. I mean I I had Keenan Thompson of SNL lined up to to to to host. This thing. And I was working with him. He's such a great guy. Oh my God. He's such a guy working with him and a couple of writers he brought in we. We were redoing the whole dinner. I mean I had planned this. This is going to be a White House. Correspondents Dinner unlike any you've seen before. I'd ripped up the set. I brought in producer. We were going to really do this thing right. And and by the way I'll give you a little bit of a scoop I am going to announce soon That we are going to reschedule God willing if the scores passes We are going to reschedule for late. August and I'll have announcement. I hope when within the coming week on the White House Correspondents Dinner. But you know those two things. He's really two of the biggest things I'd ever been. Go on all right. Well John Thank you so much for being on the podcast. We do reach. We reach people who are smart and they have money and maybe by the book. It's front row at the trump show.

"Do you know what in Scotland UCF someone's dopey. Ho Knitted Really Hannitized on about Hong Dot one I think it means that you're just a bit stupid, but anyway that I don't know why I don't know. Why said that. When we're talking about you want. It was just coincidental. Hello Listeners Hello Alan. Cumming Hello World Hello Pry. It's pride month. It's home sapiens extra. This is where we read your emails your letters and your in scrimmages. We read out review of the week where somebody can win a T. shirt blue favorite review. And we do wormhole of the week. We take relax with another. Mike Coke compadres Alan coming. Can you buy a t shirt if you win it? Good Question Allen, because if you ever press dot com slash Sapiens, you can buy a t-shirt or sweat shirt. COMING DOT com slash shop descend exactly. That's where I said. If anyone ever says anything about island Oh. We'll just have coming to. Show! The answers there. It's my wikipedia. So, if we. Welcome to the show. Hello Christopher. How are you? Hi I'm good. Thanks how you feel like I've not spoken to in ages which is. Semi, true moving a cracker. Rice Crocker I thought you can say breakdown there, which quite frankly given this week I realized I'm very I'm this eating this vizquel I feel like I'm fiddling well ruined burns. My God wolf obsolete. Insane. Time insane mass in this country of Medica. Yeah. Because obviously you are in America, so it's even more prevalent. We've still been. Allen. which come to that later on the emails, but while island finishes the cracker. I mean. Someone is tweet that said this is pre. Some of the more intense stuff happening in America said twenty twenty is giving off serious season finale vibes. This is prior and what he's hoping got renewed. Someone said this great thing today that said you know pictures of fires all right in the White House. Eighty show. Someone said. They'll meet in two thousand sixteen when he got elected. You did not think this was going to happen. It's sort of. You elect a clone. You get a circus and he's now. Probably this will beginning on Thursday. He's now hiding in a bunker right true. When. There's a great new. Hashtag. This trying called Hashtag bunker bitch. Just annoying? It's absolutely. I mean the thing I. Think's interesting about it is The, way that. It's you know this is why this use different. Is it so so much by people realising the kind of? Institutionalized racism and the police force is just inherently racist in this country and and and it's so inherent. Suggestion is that we don't even notice it and so many things happen in I've just been fascinated by these layers upon layers of things that people are nice thinking. Oh, I see I'm. No one is born racist, but you are born into racism. Because of the society's is by Nature Racist. It's just fascinating an awful and I. I mean Oh. God, I just hope that at least the list could good could happen is that? In November there is. A government that actually. Has Some compassion anyway I? It's just absolutely the idea that he could get back after this. I mean he's done. He has. been citing violence, and how youth I'm fine, thanks, you know it's been a heavy week because I mean. Larry Kramer died at allow is going to make it a big event for the week. Then we've had the riots. Because of the murder of George Floyd and I've been reading and looking at. And trying to. I don't know if you feel. This assessment is a useful reaction. is going to go beyond the next two weeks and. The. The. I was looking at a couple of people who've said good things online that I thought. I would share because I. Think it's now is the time to listen and read. And listen. So some people who are doing good stuff on instagram for example. Monroe Bergdorf at Monroe Bergdorf is sharing. Really interesting stuff to do with black lives matter and At Dash, dot penman has done a slide show. Thing called George, Floyd how can I help from the UK? which is a a series of? Recommended readings accounts instagram accounts Rachel cargo. Loti miniature lobby, candies Braithwaite and Monroe Bergdahl. Get an upstairs downstairs. I bought one of those old friend. Do you know? What's so funny is known brings the Butler did answer that. My husband Buck And yes, there's some interesting stuff there which I think is good and. The conscious kid is another account which is shares thing called forty one children's books to support conversations on race racism and resisted giving Allen on my zooms green, because when you said earlier, you know people aren't racist via born into it the early. You can be talking about the stuff I think. Is You know? He's really cool and something else. That has been going on this week. been going on its beginning of pride month, and a lot of people have been talking about how stay was a riot started by queer people of Color. and. The solidarity we were shown by. People of color needs to be returned. Absolutely and also I feel it's really interesting. I feel like. I reached out yesterday a couple of people. Who I knew what I in protesting Eve's who we have. Lead no es mature. Yes, he's good at Jaipur on instagram. Yeah, he has been doing some really cool stuff, really amazing and I also. I'm worried for him. I mean he talked by. He was prepared to give up his life. And you know the the thing that's. So and so scary and especially more than ever right now. Is this idea that you are afraid just going out? Well like. In the man who was killed when joking I. You're just afraid to actually believe your host. Just being in the world makes your target a not an especially right now. I suppose less because so many people are. Of all colors and creeds and ages demonstrating I so I hopefully, people don't feel so alone, but I mean. I've I've thought that in the past, but even like smoking port. Cynthia Nixon the idea that I I've smoked pot on the street. Say My bar. I never I never wanted endings going to happen to me. If I were of color I could go to prison, or you know lose my life. If I mean there's just. This is it's taking it back to the very simple idea just being yourself and the world you are, you are a target and you are an object of. Of, hatred is backed up by. Society's rules. It's awful yeah. Well? I think we have to give an armament into Larry. Kramer's well, yes, laddy. So tell me what Dummy about Larry Kramer. Just as you took a bite of your. Had another zoom thing before this and they did a chance to eat breakfast. I'm starving. I'M HAVING TO RACE KICKS WHATEVER MY BREAKFAST! We'll have a chic usually within. Two this one one had homemade hummus I made with ramps the last of the rumps. And this one is. vegemite have a race crack with veggies everyday day. I love vegemite more than life itself businesses. The last time I saw. Larry Kramer was the chiropractor. Because we shared the same. The same kind of b-actor. But Explain who Larry Kramer is for those who might not know. was in a writer and an activist. and He. was kind of one of the first people to. Talk about. Aids to kind of like. Screech AIDS screech a boat. Important was for people to. Realize what was coming in to change the sexual practices into and he. He was always very contentious. He's. He started the GMAC agreements health. Crisis on, but then he kind of got booted of that because he was, he was kind of. It's interesting. I think his sort of Hem as a metaphor that is kind of similar to that guy. We were talking about the one who. You know. Go all all the prep for everybody that guy in London, in order for things to get done. There's a certain level of mediation and you know. Diplomacy and kind of getting people on board Laddy was into. That told that it was just like. Listen to me, here's the truth. Here's the actual what's gone on and I. Don't give a fuck about wh- any of you. Have to say. In sort of ticket slowly all that stuff. Just. A couple of minutes. But he, so he was, he got booted out with Jim Mitchell Danny kind of. Started or was one of the findings of act, up. which was already sort of? A Much more sort of militant activists movement about AIDS and the government's refusal to. A. Fast Track the medical things, so he was just its incredible person also. wrote a writer of great, not the normal heart. which is this play kind of? His. the the finding GMAC know these things, and he wrote a very controversial book called faggots that that's about. Life as he saw that time, and he just he never kind of shut up even when the normal heart was on Broadway again a couple of years ago, I saw him I eyesight handing out leaflets. and. I can't remember what it was actually. What signing the leaflets were four, but he's he was. Local chiropractor! Then I saw plenty so I was in this film. A few years go after Louis. where I play sort of older gay gentleman who had been knocked up. And it was directed and written a Kootenai Michael. Vincent Leo Stroh. who had be the knocked up and was this. Artist and So I think. With him, and also that certain this my friend, Anthony Johnston and What was interesting about young man and an older mine and Vincent was an older game on an anti younger gay, and they kind of came together to I was brought on to kind of. Make scripts. Up You know better I suppose, and so in the story, the story of the film kind of. Mid Art, what was happening in real life and I played the guy on. There was a young guy who I kind of you know I'm this angry man? I've got survivor's guilt by AIDS I'm doing this documentary, but my friend I'm kind of obsessed with it, and it's this kind of thing. The schism between generations of gay man is basically. There's a generation missing a whole generation that we lost to AIDS. And so there are mentors for those younger people, and also there's this kind of older gay man who like either node. It's like we do on the younger game in la well. We don't know what it's like, but don't shut us I. Don't just let us know. Try and talk to us, so it was a really interesting film. Lady was a very. Behind it and because he vincent or old friends, so he came to, it came to the screening of it. When it was kind of coming out. I just happened to be in the chiropractor. Nettie was in the reception and. We're talking about the film about to be released limiting the last. Couple of years ago, but an absolutely amazing mine. and. Took no prisoners and I love that. He yeah one of the pivotal people as to why we have the rights we have today. Shall, we take a look at messages in email Allen I would love to. Almost one this vegemite. Life back.

Say Your Name My head. Would like someone says Allen. I hear in my head Nicole Kidman saying to you Allen when. You were teasing her and Graham Norton. You are. Trying to. Remember to stories spring to mind. I opened that time when they went to what I was the. New York Film Festival and I was asked if I would be. The ambassador for grandma did you. Know I was the ambassador for. The for the filled festival. I'm sorry. And I got paid of money and as much as I could drink and also the. Company had Moyen Sean Dolan so I got champagne, blah, blah blah. I will add to do was to go to three parties the opening one in the ending one an. This other one in the middle. Premiers the film festival, which I probably would have gone to anyway I invite invited to them, and so I went along. I was taken along the crest line by the PR, and they said Oh, so what brings you tonight and I said I am the bus difficult Marnie and they want to go. Why you really here as? The Best Grandma. And I said I said. Maybe I should wear a sash. Saying Miss Grun Marnie and that's a good idea. I would joking. Anyway Middle Film was. That one by Lars one cheer dog. Ville or something Tocqueville Yoke. Something had to go backstage and before with all the cast. On it was like Lauren Bacall and all these people were and she. I've been thinking about her this week. Actually because I did an interview thing with Damian Barr Amazing writer. Of the thing. Called Shelf, isolation and talking about listening and watching. Betty Bacall telling stories, but her and one of the things. I saw this thing backstage. Hey, betty, how are you? I said. What was it like making this films would. It was awful. We had to go to Sweden I was wrong with that because they have mayonnaise for breakfast. That's what she's saying. Forced eat man is. But, anyway, I'm standing there. With the car. Backstage for they're going to be introduced before the film and. Nicole comes. She's an over the. She comes up to me and. She goes to me. In this film I was a I know. I. I'm here because I'm the ambassador regret Marty. Linguist I actually think she thought I. Just didn't realize I was in that film. And somehow stumbled upon the Green Room. And was.

System Spews Spews danger through ignorance and. And and and white privilege enemy him talking to both jetty and Melby and when Melby was on it, she talked about them. Having had a little donny owns. And that was. Looking for pictures of needing belt ended up. Talking are looking at lesbian expes action. That was the. Whole of the week what about you? What's your wormhole? Wormhole was what it started with snakes shut up. Because you had to sneak incident, that's right. Let's talk about your sick. And ended with Kate Moss. So I started looking so there. I am skipping around outside, my house. And I looked down, and there is a bloody snake standing next to me and how delivering. How did you feel vulnerable? I lost my shit inside on the phone to my mom at the time. Actually anyone fucking snake. And she went, didn't about it anyway, so then I realized when I and I went inside, took the dog inside shell the doors within sixty seconds, and then I said to. Say Oh. Gosh, you know what kind of snake that was so I need to Google, to see if I find a google image, what are you snaky was quite patent and quite colorful, so it's like poisonous. With my thing. But then. I couldn't find anything. and. Then I'm sitting there typing away. Half Hoffner later look around, no, sorry I look around because I hear a swooshing noise coming up the hallway, I looked down, and there is a snake. The same snake comes swishing into the room where I was it been. Had got into the House somehow. Oh my God. were. So anyway, the RSPCA came. They took it away. And said Oh a competent too far from the house, because it will be not very near its nest, I said God please into wellness and nest of vipers. Discover that it was a snake, but my wormhole was in my voyage of discovery. Little distracted because I started looking at snake identification. then. I was like what snakes eat because I was worried, it was going to Chinese the dog because the dog is very small. So then I was at what to sneaks e small which snake? Sneak if no I told him I. as if rats, it might try and buy a dog and slowly eat it. Who knows worried parents. which then took me on to light various cross, Nick Type Websites, which somehow ended up on some house and garden thing. which took me to late pretty towards villages, and then I'm sure I was on a piece about where Kate. Moss lives in the courts worlds. And then I ended up. This is when I woke up out of my trance on a piece called. Kate Moss my life slip dresses. which was genuine piece published? Invoke this month and I thought. Why am I reading this? Right here, yeah, so that that was. that. Was My wormhole and I pressed the next his. Anecdote we let.

The Tony Kornheiser Show

1:19:33 hr | 2 years ago

"I guess you can buy tube socks"

"Yeah. Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show. At least it'll be warmer here. You'll get to play golf spring training. You're going to see. So I've been trying to this is going to disclose a lot. I wanna push dad to spending some more time in Florida because I think in the next couple years he might wanna say spend six weeks eight weeks down there. I don't want him down there late. Polka. This can we find some place? That's not here where you can spend a lot of time. Florida's planes for dad again to shaped like a coffin. About. This is General George Washington, you're listening. Tony is it's like it's the fourteen hundreds and my son is trying to push me out the top of the castle. He can get twelve or thirteen months year. You've had yours. Retirement home. Just go die. Okay. Or do. You have the Cadillac. We are chatter. We're open for breakfast wheel. Nice crowd today. We're at the corner was concentrated early Waldron people. Don't. For us the corner of Jennifer street, north west, Wisconsin avenue northwest. We are full serve we are for profit. And hopefully today and tonight, we're going to have a wonderful event with the wall people. This is the last time I'm going to plug it. I hope there are the hundred people here out there more, but one hundred would make me very happy Waldron is a private equity group. They are money managers. They are in Pittsburgh there. The number one rated of financial group in all Pennsylvania, thinking, Tony. I don't need that. That kind of cash let me get to that. Let's have a free drink and have some orders someday. Maybe someday maybe and I wish this to all of you some day. Maybe you will have enough money where you'll be able to say, you know, what I've got a little bit of money here. I'd like to know how to invest it. I'm gonna tell you if you wanna go on each rate and start trading knock yourself out. I think that's a pretty sure way of having no money by five o'clock in the afternoon by restaurants. Don't do that losing don't do that. But I think if you engage professionals they don't have to be the wall. People be nice if they were if the Walden people meet some people tonight and get some clients, they're going to be thrilled but much in the same way that I would tell you not to take out a scalpel and attempt to take out your own appendix. I would tell you that here from you had a small surplus money. It doesn't have to be a lot. And you thought maybe I can grow a nest egg not like Albert Brooks did in that movie come of the American movie, which was so funny, whatever the name of that movie was not like that. And then you would look for financial planning. And estate planning and stuff like that. Don't be afraid of the words don't be afraid of the words. Meet the people say Hello. It does not necessarily for today or tonight. But the party is for today or tonight. It's a happy hour deal. I it's round five six seven o'clock come in come into chatter and join the fun question. Yes. If they pick up any clients get a little for the. For the. Do not do not. But but the possibility is that I can convince Matt to let me keep the restaurant open another day or two what I'm hoping for Deo and Rebecca hit we're here yesterday. They were from Perth Australia. They brought us a whole bunch of stuff whole bunch of goodies from Australia during one of those things that's knife a box of Tim champs. So when some people came in here today, I said I've got some stuff here who wants to gift on win. Tin Tam, one guy, I've been to Australia. Juggles TAM's like, I guess these are good. We also had crocodile jerky and guru jerky of given all of it out. I'm very grateful for people who care enough to to even show up and bring stuff from Australia to small points. Lost in America was the Boston America. It's terrific what Dr nest egg. What did you do to on this there? Yeah. And we were also out of the unidentified meet that we generally get from China anybody's traveling to China, you if you could purchase that and sending oh, I've got a few correspondents coming back from the tastic very successful. Not at all disappointing North Korea summit nothing was signed though. Everyone's going perfectly tone harbors going to play with the whole. Deal. Yeah. That's what he's a two year deal with an option for them significant yen. So we've done all that. And now, we can we can start the show. Chris Liz is here. Gary Braun is here. Michael Kornheiser's here Nigel will produce the show run the board. Do the news everybody is here, and we will devote we will devote the first segment to the Michael Cohen testimony. If I understand this correctly, it's three days of testimony. The first I'm the third testimony a private the second day of testimony yesterday was completely public. You could not turn on the news. You cannot turn on anything yesterday other than ESPN. You cannot turn on anything without seeing Michael Cohen being extraordinarily critical of his former friend and employer. Donald trump. Everybody knows everything that he has said we just to start in the in the sort of general way, which is. I understand. And I am please. Chris when I'm wrong, you say no that that that that. Okay. I understand. My God by his own words and deeds and others to be Aligarh. I understand that he is going to prison. Correct. Whether his does not appear now that the president will commute or. Unlikely. He's going to prison down the road. It might be a lesser sentence than was originally given. But it's three years at the moment. It's three years at the moment. I found it very interesting that one fat congressman yesterday thought that was a real easy ride three years. And I thought what you spend what you spend two days in prison, and let me know how application by the way that it was worth it for the book deal that he seemed to be on. He will get. Yeah. Who wouldn't do three years in prison for a book? I mean, it is so easy to sit there and say prison piece a cake, you do it fatso. Interesting. A democrat. I don't know who he was it was a Republican. That was completely. I believe his name is Glen graffman. So so Michael Cohen is going to prison Conesa liar. He's alive. Yes. In a court of law testifying against someone else. It seems possible to me that his testimony would be stricken because he's a liar. But yesterday is not a court of law. Now, yesterday's the court of public opinion. It is completely different whatever rules apply. Have nothing basically to do with the court of law. So we start by asking Chris. 'cause this is Chris job. How do we judge the truth in this? What was your general impression of what Michael Cohen said and how badly if at all was the president of the United States of America hurt by this? I think the truth of it is hard to judge because like many things the truth of it. Winds up coming out to what partisan classes you put on in the morning. If you watched any of the hearing, Jimmy. Jim Jordan was like he was essentially like, look, you're you're a liar and a thief or liar this child molestation. Maybe I'd look the other way. I mean, he's he is he is so Republicans essentially spent the whole time saying, you're a liar. You're starting to get a book deal disappointed. You didn't get a job in the White House. Now. And Democrats who had castigated Michael Cohen during the campaign because he was with Trump were suddenly thank you so much for your your imply, you're important testimony. This is one one reprint democratic member said, this is a real redemption store. Every story because he's literally going to jail. So I thought his opening statement which was reported the night before twenty page PDF if you would only read or listen to that you got the by far the most important stuff in there in there. He says Trump is lying about having never talked Roger stone about WikiLeaks. That's pretty big deal. He says Trump is lying. He said this before but detail that Trump is lying about the fact that he knew about in coordinated the payments to Stephanie Clifford, aka stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal these two women who alleged affairs with Trump in the mid two thousands that were paid off one by National Enquirer one by Cohen, which I'm just going to parenthetically no one in America seems to care about. I don't. I don't think that you look do. I think that Donald Trump actively sought to end run campaign finance law by paying these two women off in ways that were not visible publicly are easily visible public because he thought that that might make it more likely that he would win. Yes. Yeah. I mean, I think the southern district of New York has said that this is not just Michael Cohen, the judge who signed the plea deal said that some district York. Prosecutors said that Trump has a record of not telling the truth repeatedly. Do I think that Donald Trump is impeached because he made an end run around campaign finance lot. I I don't think. So I mean, isn't that isn't the end game that question will article peach? Yes of impeachment against the sitting president of the United States that's the whole game. Because the do you want Michael Cohen, right, legally speaking. Muller has Muller through rod Rosenstein Muller through Bill bar. The new attorney general has said we are consistent with the Watergate. And then the reaffirmed during the Clinton years that he's sitting president camping dated so on the legal end of things as long as Trump is president. He's not they're not locking him up and take him out of the White House. Okay. So so it's all a political conversation, which is the impeachment route it is maybe I'm wrong. Is it not impossible to equate what Robert Muller is doing with what Michael Cohen? These are not the same people. Right. No Muller is conducting. Yes. Some sort of formal and scrupulous invest well. Yes. In Muller is someone with a long track record of getting it, right and moral behavior. Head of that, Michael. Michael Cohen is a can like you can hate Donald Trump. Michael Cohen is eight liar liar and a bully and was Donald Trump's weirdly muscles for years. I mean, I should that. He wrote one sorry. One thing. I forget who Vonts hunter female female number. Expire. She was like have you threatened someone ten times? He's like, oh, many more than that off hundred many more than that. I was like what is going to. There was basically one week. They wanna week for ten years. Yeah. That's what you wanna do that. I'll break your legs and kill you to one of my one of my favorite things introduced like he introduces evidence like five letters that. He had sent of these many threatening letters. He had sent. And I think it was to Ford. Great. It's like never released Mr. Trump's records. Great. We will. We will end you. If you do that, it was like PS, Mr. Trump early enjoys Fordham, and it was so weird. It was like I hate to murder you that said you make a good Brockett. Just so weird. Yeah. I mean, that's the guy that he was like let's not turn him into a sane. At least part of why this is not telling the truth. This rates to my question. So name that kept coming up as being able to verify much of what he was saying. And someone who to my knowledge is not impugn Weisselberg. So chance was hoping with Scott chance ring us into sports that the committee and in an effort to sort of go down. These roads calls him in Allen Weisselberg. I mean allies should bring the money guy. Alain like, he's the guy who has handled the Trump organization finances from the beginning and still yes. So bodies are buried metaphor. And how. How can he not to take the fifth amendment sat on I don't he would fight? It would be my guess he has been talked to by believe bolt disowned issue New York animal or team, but not there's no plea deal. But he's not charged with anything. I just it's difficult thing. Because Michael it's like reading a book and realizing a work of fiction realizing that this is an unreliable narrator. Right. So it doesn't mean everything that he says is wrong. And in fact, everything he said could be right. It could be you just in his track record. If someone lies a good lesson for the kids Republic made a really good point. Which is like the last time you were here. Anytime you say this. I'm big truth. Xactly securely. Love was stormy Daniels. Sending a no that was three. Yes. Thanks for coming around on this. When you intrigue me, very, well, just do what sidebar on Matt gaetz and why okay just to be Matt gaetz is not on the committee, the house oversight committee. He strolls into the committee remind watching. Terrible things about Conan. Coens? I hope your wife doesn't cheat on you all your prison. Literally. That's what he said. He has sinced policies in deleted, the tweet and apologised again. But anyway, he stalls in the video to people who may have been offended. Walks in Cambronne and all that. And there's this interview and says well gates is there because he's interested in. He's hoping that they're going to let him ask questions democrat short hours. To let you ask questions right in the audience. You got anything we're going to wrap up here. We'll take your just there on camera takeoff. Awhile next. Call open lines, and let me just offer on this not by means of analysis. You're probably agree on the thing. Most people who went and I consumed more of this than I care to admit Gary watching that tape delay, which is really something. I. I don't think they're probably a lot of people who watch that. And felt like we as a country were winning good yesterday. I mean, the the number of Republicans who appeared interested in actually trying to investigate whether or not a crime was committed was one hundred percent of low for me and the Democrats to Chris it's television show, Mike. My honest, look if Donald Trump given who he is were watching this, which I know he was part of him would have said, wow. That's a good television show something like that put this. Because a lot of people are watching this. Let me offer one other note just as a public service to. Roy who said, you know, the minor sentence. It's not that was. Are members of congress and to mind, I believe is Jamie Raskin mentioned it is from the People's Republic. Oh, you know, you're going to get five minutes. Please prepare prepare. You don't understand? How foolish you look up there. No. Actually care much more than you think because this is their moment to shine. And I get hot teams behind right? Who are? More person. Davis. If one more percent of democratic side say are called individual one, Donald Trump. I was screaming said at fifty two times, they're not paying attention to the other lines of questions. There cramming for their exam. I thought that one other thing, I know we're long clay Higgins from Louisiana. It was. So Larry's he thought that he had true detective on earth, the key that unlocked, the whole thing because Cohen said he had been looking through boxes of of materials any it found this check this five thousand dollar check from Trump's they go to Higgins, and he's like, so these boxes they haven't been turned over to federal officials going. They radio he said, if you had this evidence, how come it hadn't writing they read it, my home house, my home, my hotel office, and they took thousands of these have been returned me and Hagans it just I just think that'd be interesting for federal investigators. Look like, what are you literally talk. How about that Mr. Fong? So this is what happens every every once in a while. I look, and I go I just said that you pay attention to the show. Anyway, let's break. We'll come back. Peter king. We're going to completely different when we're going to football when we return on the combine with Peter King. I'm Tony Kornheiser. This is the Tony Kornheiser show. A love the sad because it's well written in short, and that's important because when I used to be a writer, I was well written, but I was way too long February's and just about one supersize football game on spot. And by the way, this is the last day of February February isn't just about one supersized football game on Spotify. There are thousands. Of free sports podcasts. That agonize over the preseason the off seasons and the plano regular seasons of nearly every sport, imaginable, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, curling, and even hurling, and yes that is a real sport. Now. It's so easy to stay updated with the latest trade. Rumors the predictions in the scorching hot takes from some of your favorite games. Biggest names so take it one episode at a time and give one hundred ten percent of your attention to the thousands of free sports casts on Spotify. Because the best offense is a good podcast. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. This is sent us by Andrew, Don. Listener from New Jersey. How would you know, it was jersey? Does it sounds like we're? Chan is room roses, an indie rock band with a pop man Saudi song is called shipwrecked. I mean, you can you can almost see the carnival in the background the ferris wheel and ships voice. Wonderful ruby roast plays in my friend. Peter King from the QB from NBC. Like me, an alum of Newsday. And unlike me does podcast. I'm grateful for Peter being are you are you physically at the combine or doesn't even doesn't that matter are you there? No, I'll I'll be there tomorrow. I. Taking a full week. And then I just said, you know, enough of of wandering around bars. Twelve thirty at night asking head coaches three questions. Okay. I I don't know. Maybe I've not the the the people that I used to be. I like going to bed and at quarter to ten now. It's very good. I wish I could do that. I go to bed at a quarter day your phone. You phone is in and out. Are you in a car you sitting down one spot? No, I'm here in I'm here in my house by good, sit still let's start with a whole bunch of things the lead story yesterday for us the lead story in the combine which will get to as amazing. It's how all his mopping, but we're gonna get into that in a little while the lead story PTI yesterday was Nick foles, the Philadelphia Eagles who had a thousand different scenarios as to what they would do with Nick foles. Finally, just said, you know, what we're going to let them go. We're just going to let them go. We're not fooling around with this. I guess I'm asking for the explanation as to why they just let him go. And then I'm a three parter. Why did they let him go? Why are they so sure it's Wentz and not fulls? And where do you think foles goes? I think the best shot for foles is either Jacksonville Miami. Why I think they let him go with because done them a bunch of Stalin. And I think he's gonna have one shot. Now, he's gonna have one shot to be to be somebody's quarterback, Tony. And I think they wanna give him, you know, the best opportunity that he sees out there. And why hint over over Wentz? Yeah. Because I think they've event as a long term rate quarterback. And I think if you push them to the wall that they believe that Nick foles is a long term quarterback. I just hiding they fake that they caught lightning in a bottle a couple of times. And they think that won't whence is doubt the better guy. You know, I get that Mike, and I went back and forth about this. The. The the pro. And maybe in a perfect world wins is the better guy. He's hurt three years in a row. I mean, there are people who are injury prone. We gotta be pretty old. But if you remember Greg cook at Cincinnati, and you said, wow, this guy is great. And then he couldn't get on the field. Sam bradford. Sometimes just couldn't get on the field, isn't that a legitimate worry and for twenty five million dollars at some spending somebody else's money. But don't you think it's a wise investment in case wins can't get on the field. Yes, absolutely unequivocally. I do. But if you ask the Philadelphia Eagles, they had I mean, and and making stay you'd rather foles. If I told you that let's just say you can have person went and they felt as your backup quarterback or you know, air you can have Brandon Graham on your team. If you Pete Nick foles on your team, you're gonna lose Brandon Graham who is more than a solid player eater. I and I'm not saying absolutely is Brandon grant. But I'm staying at Nate would have to make a choice like that in sort of stripping their franchise of a good very good long-term player. Keep Nick foles this here. That's how they look at it. While I think they just view we're gonna roll the dice quarterback. Okay. It's a corollary question. And it makes me feel happy because I'm I get to say this, do you think John Elway feels dumb at the moment because he rolled for flacco. And maybe he didn't see this coming. No. Because I look I I think that a lot of people around the league are really they're trying to fascinated with foale's. But you know, he's had chances and again OB Kameda Fave and phones is not gonna to be really good initially. I'm not I don't know where we. I I've watched two times when I say that you gotta gifted size watch too many times for you know, for week for the time. He's not very good. I read on what it is in. What Elway in getting in getting Joe flacco is basically. Because I every the way is the next year but need a one a high on his wrongful about. Paxton Lynch, and he's gonna get one more quarterback to pay to get it way. Okay. We're peter. We're gonna we're gonna. Let us call you right back. Block thinking this is Bill from the five years. Peter, let us call you back literally within fifteen seconds. And maybe the phone connection will be better, and I'll vamp fifteen seconds because I mean, the the John Elway question for me is is extremely interesting. He's one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. He has fallen in love with the wrong quarterback for different times in being being really good at a sport. And in very particular position doesn't make you. I give you is Ahah Thomas. Isaiah Thomas was a great player. Right. But a failure as a coach, and as a GM I mean, it's not on as the own their their failed in every consider her executive cabal? Larry Bird has been successful. I mean, there are situated overs trace him. So we got Peter back. So we're going we're going to shift out of John Elway we're gonna go to Josh Rosen. Josh Rosen was the overall number ten pick last year when a five quarterbacks picked in the first round he ended up as all those guys did starting for their teams. He started for our Zona, the GM kind. Of Arizona and the new coach cliff Kingsbury of Arizona cliff Kingsbury quoted as saying before he got this job. Boy. Oh, boy, five the number one pick. I would go for Kyla Murray. Well, he has the number one pick. Josh Rosen is the incumbent starting quarterback in the GM said. Yeah, he's quarterback right now. That's what what do you make of that situation? Peter. You know, what I don't understand phony, in my opinion, the thing that bothers me about this choice is that airs cardinal only gonna get one opportunity to get his exit tuition, right? They have a higher Tyler. And I know a lot of people out there in the NFL world think that Tyler Marie is the second that putting wasn't oklahom- his height is that father him as a player. And and in my opinion. I think there's still live on Cuyler Murray. They gotta take them and they get what they get for Josh Rosen. Maybe they get a mid one. He knows what they get for them. But get other chance if you get a quarterback Paul love with object to getting another chance. Marinari limp. I would take that. Wow. Your phone. That's it's so wild. It's. So while we just had what sounded like a dragon. Roaring in the background. So DR DU. I'm I understand what you're saying. When you look at Cuyler Murray, whether he's five nine or five nine after five ten eight six three do you find him that tantalizing? Do you think that you do? Yeah. I think he's worth taking a tie as e would take a quarterback. Tony. I just won't make me to be. Attacking? Important one would Lincoln Riley. It'd be. A laugh here. To be high. I drive dick Baker Mayfield was number one. And he's going to be somewhere where we're way up there. Is often and all. And last year last dealer one all of the top sorta back in this draft. That really is five so with five, thanks, if he's just my opinion, you know. I mean, I understand that everybody every quarterback. That's the game. Watch the games and expect for I think about twenty minutes against Alabama when he was downright if he off his element last year. He was the best quarterback. And that includes after and, and I just I think you've got to take a leap of faith. Did they create Mayfield? And look what it did to them. No. They were great. Your phone is is awful. It's it's either our fall to the phones fault that it's never your fault. I'll try one more thing. And if it doesn't work, we'll we'll just say, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And I I wanted just go to Robert Kraft, you know, the league as much as anybody knows the league, I'm going to assume that Robert Kraft, even if he's found guilty, and I don't think he will be it'll be a misdemeanor, but the embarrassment level is enormous the damage to reputation the damage to legacy is absolutely enormous. Do you foresee any particular discipline to him I'm as far out there as you can be? I think they make him give the team to his kid, and you no longer see him in the owner's box. I don't think I mean, he meets us do that Nonni. I would be surprised if that happened. But but look dodgers Adele is very very big on how the public is league. Because he thinks that means everything and last Friday night and this past Sunday night, the lead story on the NBC nightly news with eight point one million Americans watching that newscast and with washing. Buyers, and and and you know with the with all the political cramped. We got going on right now lead Surrey on the NBC nightly news nights in a row who week nights in a row was Robert grass. Yes. And if it to me, I think he's gonna get suspended for some length of time. Let's say four to stick week something like that. I doubt he's gonna get speaking from. But who knows you choose to walk away? That's that's something. I don't know. I doubt it. I don't know that. Thank you, Peter. We'll get it. The next time. We do this. We'll get a better phone deal. I appreciate your time. And I will certainly if I don't see you before I'll see you over the air. But if I don't see before I will see you in June. Okay. Sounds great. Tony really appreciate valued at Dr Peter king. So we this is these things happen. I mean, we reach out and we do phone work. It's it's eighty thousand different things that can. Happen. It could be a bad cellphone, which we used to have with Bob Ryan, it could be weather. I mean it. This is my full you never know Russian. I if I didn't ever want to do the show again. That's exactly what I would do. Like, I was having trouble. Just so next time you could. For people who could work. Yeah. He thinks that Kyla Murray's worth it. Yeah. He thinks if you've got the number one pick you take in the trade. Josh wrote the comments by the cardinals GM like is gestures. You can keep it. Yeah. I mean is there Huby for now? I mean, if you're right if you're Tom Coughlin, you said the same thing about Blake born ice, but Blake Bortles has been criticized for years. Josh Rosen just sorta got so so I mean Josh Rosen is twenty two to. Watch him play is what I would say people get so messed up in the measurable. I mean you watch him play. He can throw from the pocket. He's pretty accurate. Yes. He's short. When the. For six eight house. He. I missing something pills. Russell Wilson five eleven. The thing you need to understand slightly Toler. Yeah. Cuyler Murray has been this height for awhile. He's been a quarterback for a while. He has learned to throw the ball without getting it batted down. Because if he got it back down every time, he couldn't be I think Peter say only five times he had pass bad as what he's doing. I mean, let's see what he measured, but he's not what I think's. What's the diff they're saying there's flu shoulda five ten Doug Flutie was that height and Doug Flutie was very effective quarterback on a bunch of different levels. It wasn't a grinding. Not someone you would take the in the top five. I mean, that's no one thinks it going beyond the first round. Or even be on the first fifteen. The issue is king saying you take him one to find him at one, right? Take him in one. Speaking of Doug Flutie, do I remember correctly. Didn't he drop kick for field goal and extra point? Actually, I didn't know if you know this Tony was at the game. That were in the end zone with John and Lou carnesecca were and sweaters. Long time ago outta here. We'll try and do this without phones for the rest of the show. I may never go to phones. Again. I mean. Last winter four printed statements. I love him at twenty five before we'll be back. We'll do news died. I'm Tony Kornheiser. This is the Tony Kornheiser show either.

Why can't I mean, everyone uses phones? Now, everyone uses cellular phones everyone walks around with phones all the time. Why can't the phones be better? I don't can't have the camera is why can't the phone need more cell tower, mynorthwest your? Minority that reminds me of the Louis C K bit when he talks about the guy who had the WI fi on the airplane. Did you ever hear that? He says he sits down next. This is ten years. This is ten years ago when we were allowed to admit that he was funny, and he sits down and they say, oh, and everyone will have free wifi on this flight. And the guy's like, oh my God. That's incredible. And they're up there. Thirty minutes guys don't work in the wifi goes out. And he's like, dammit. Why can't we have in CK says, you know, this is something that thirty minutes ago? You didn't even know existed? Now, you're like angry, but it's not flawless. So it's still pretty incredible. I try to Peter is standing somewhere several hundred miles away. But try and give the people the best show that you can try to give them. Show you anyway, can I mention this again, I mentioned this the Chris Miller of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation who brought in these fabulous. Yes. The shirt the hats and the lady Jackson Hewitt on just now vast. No that was like the fleece. He has a nice one correction. I believe his name is Chris Wilson from the CBC. Not Chris Miller. Simple. This wrong under sustainment. I know daughter's name was Anna, you know. Okay. Ryan, whoever it is Chris from the CBC. We are very grateful go in. Yes. As you talking about Alexa, a few moments ago. Just wanna do this public service for everyone? Alexa, commit self destruct sequence. Now. Right. That's that's every home. You have the proper voice Alexis self destruct mode. Mr Tony we start off with college basketball and lose by twenty. Yes, we lose to Hartford by twenty one hundred seems to have the Bearcats number this year. Nice note from Howard fineman today that Colgate last night one. It's twentieth game. That's more games. I think than Colgate has ever won. How it was very very Donald foil. Not anymore still have Donald flow. But they apparently have a transfer from northwestern wilbon lost somebody went to Colgate. And they've done very well. So congratulations. Are they still the red raiders that just the raiders now at Colgate? They're good question. We'll have to look at university in Hamilton New York and Hamilton university in Clinton, New York makes no sense. Yeah. And by the way, it just a great great effort from Sam the sham Sessoms thirty four points and the big potatoes Caleb Stewart twenty two points. But still you're saying the baked potato liked better potato can we call them the baked? But you know, what we? Dictator you wanna baked potato. Seven games would no one eight game. Simply the raiders. And I do want to point out the the big till this weekend, the eleven am start at main. So make sure. We can be that's tough traveling east. Nine AM Sunday morning. Start the Hoyas were winner last. Yes, the Hoi is beat to pull very Hanley eighty to seventy three number ten mile kit loses. But in a more surprising developing market loses. Just. Let's go to Bill. Are the two teams that we know for certain from the big east or going to go to the tournament. Others may go, but we are confident right? Chris that villanovan more can't guess they are both in. I mean, I had lost two or three in a row. They're not going to be. I was listening to Pat forty in you yesterday who he was the mazing so good, but Villanova someplace phone was solid Villanova at some point was considered the best Henschel one or two, and they're not any more. But but I think they are in Marquette the best team in the league has a player and Marcus Howard, who I think if they go to say, the Sweet Sixteen we'll get a lot of national attention because he's an amazing score on beyond that, man. Everyone else is basically five hundred or a little below in the conference and sixteen thirteen over only Saint John's as says did you see my Maryland law? Seventeen dependent. I was watching that game got bad at Penn State. They were almost audit at the half. They were out. What happened? What happened? I think it game forty two twenty it happen because gearing watched Maryland and that kid brutal Fernando is really good is. No, Bruno Fernando sophomore, actually. Into toe in the draft and Tennessee one Tennessee right at the by one point, right? Controversial call at the end of the game to the NBA. You'll wizards are winner. Yeah. The wizards won the wizards went to Brooklyn in one. And that's nice. There's there is one game of importance yesterday in the NBA, and that's loss Angeles Lakers. The Lakers, and we should probably talk about this a little bit. The Los Angeles Lakers beat New Orleans last night in LA the Lakers twenty two games left prior to that game. Probably have to win fifteen of them. They probably do and they were foreign ten in their last fourteen and giving up one hundred twenty two points a game. So asking them to win fifteen of twenty two is really a lot in order to make the playoffs. Lebron had a spectacular statistical game with thirty three points and Tennessee's. But here's what I wanna know. And I know that that Christmas big basketball fan as Gary a big basketball fan. If Davis didn't even play at the end of the game. This is a one possession game at the end of the game. Anthony Davis is sitting on the pine. He's not even playing is there a living breathing Commissioner in that league. I mean, Anthony Davis you're paying him to play basketball. We all understand that you're going to get rid of him at the end of this year. He's going to be gone. He will never play in New Orleans again except on those days when he asked to play there because the team. He's playing on is in New Orleans. But if you have any sense of the integrity of your league, what in God's name a my wrong on this one another trend in a win one of the top five players and in a fourth quarter. He's on the bench. It's a combination of they're not trying to play twenty years game. He doesn't play. The are they silver the great commission. What are you doing these things? Dovetail? But is there not trying to win and not trying to get him hurt? I assume that's what it is. Because they wanna be the tree for the one year that have left on the contract. Yes. But I mean, but what are we Gatien? Do you have to people buying tickets? And you none. But isn't this a function not to Adam silver deserve your scorn? But isn't the so-so function of Rich, Paul and the rich? He's not gonna play any means, right? The Leeming Rich Paul and LeBron James and Magic Johnson tried to publicly you million than warlords team into trading. Anthony Davis to the raiders, and and they lost on that one. They lost on that one. And Adam silver ought to be standing up is he afraid of the Bron 'cause rich polls his agent and his best friend is he afraid of him. And what does Adam stand on something other than saying stand on something solid and issue a judgement about this? Now, if you wanna say the judgment is they don't have to play at all fun. But stand up and say something say, so he had he had said they would be fine. Didn't he one hundred grand game? If they if they don't play him so now possession game. And he's not out there. Right. Right. But I mean, it's just it's a they're starting. I mean, I agree with you. I mean, I'm just playing. Advocate here. They're starting him. He's playing twenty minutes a game. It's not like people who played aren't peak doing the bare minimum to try. Boy, I mean, how do you know? Michael tell me I'm crazy, and Michael defend Adam silver and everybody loves a right? Everybody loves Adam silver. And then you can love Adam silver that doesn't mean every Michael Cohen. It doesn't mean everything he says, it doesn't mean everything Adam silver. Does is correct. It doesn't one other result worth pointing out was Dwayne Wade's. Did you see that ridiculous? A ridiculous banged it. In Bank did in banked in three at the buzzer to beat Golden State who they don't care and the Celtics Los at home again. And apparently there was video of Kyrie Irving being very very upset. And he had a nice game. Yeah. Yourself expand. You don't really think he's going to be there next year? None of this point. If you think you better what they're all in six when he plays lately. Yeah. And six when he does it threatening to. I know he's a brilliant. Brad Stevens terrific coach, maybe not now. Yeah. Maybe not maybe not. Does tony. We will go to the state of genius go to this. Yes. The less time, we pan Northam. She was preventing us from seeing what would have been the greatest video highlighter in one hundred years when a husband with about to get up moonwalk. Yes. Cardboard I could break dance on. So now, I guess it was an eighth grade to I think we need to set the self for people who have been not alive for the last month. Or so the top three elected officials in Jamia. Have no business being in their jobs. None of them to have one black face in another is accused of sexual assault. Story about that. So I guess eighth grade two through the the governor's residence and the first lady, Pam Northam. Did something inexplicable. I'm looking at the copy of this. And I still can't believe this. She handed raw cotton to a couple of children who both whom I believe were African American children and ask them to imagine being enslaved and having to pick that crop. I understand I understand. I'm going to say that you can teach a lesson on slavery and the confederacy and the agrarian economy and all of that. And you can hold up cotton. And you can say this is what this was about on a large level people, not given the rights of people and being enslaved. But if you're going to do something like this in the governor's mansion, you need to understand we got a hand this out to all the kids. There have to be white kids and yellow kids and Brown kids and black. You got to do it that way you cannot given what has happened in the last month to you and your husband and state. Yes, you cannot ever not be conscious of how it's right. Chris around with going to look at now, you can do it. But it's got to. Be done differently than that. Yeah. I mean, I would still not good in a vacuum. It's really bad. Given all the past two months in Virginia will her her restriction on her husband's moonwalking, also unacceptable. She did give a very long apology that said all three of these people regret that I've upset any right? Anyone gone? General their radio active next level, tone deafness, and you can teach that you know, you you can say let me try and bring you back to how terrible. It was just just while we're on the subject. I don't think we talked about this on Monday, but Justin Fairfax was the African American Lieutenant governor who is accused of two sexual so. No one wanted to during the democratic national convention into those. I'm sorry. He is the head of the state Senate effectively, and he gives the closing remarks. Lot gets out there. In impromptu rolls out the. I am the subject of a political lynching. It's like going where you talked to anyone about Saint you really record. What you say? And listen to it back. Like, what are you guys? Wait, by the way, wasn't into some poll taking a Virginia voters and the majority everybody they let him stay. Stay. They might wanna work on that slogan. Virginia is for something. Mr Tony, and Chris you'll appreciate this will I former Green Bay practice. Head coach Mike McCarthy heard this story now. Oh, yes. Sounds like it might be on T. He do you know what one of his jobs was a kid with? That was toll taker at the Pennsylvania turnpike. Yeah. Pittsburgh kid to stay on the bar. No that. Yeah. Likable in that regard. He shares something coming with with Chris Malibu drinker. Looks good looks charm and wit and also riding referees during during. Show officials from Polaski school district in Wisconsin filed a formal complaint against McCarthy a day after he was involved in an incident with referees following his stepson's high school basketball game video obtained show McCarthy following referees. As they made their way out, Jim. The. Officials confirmed the men in the video was McCarthy and said he directed what is called unsportsmanlike language at the referee football move, the older. Yes. Yes. Some things were said some languages use that we don't want an odd. Jim unsportsmanlike language thing else that we ought to hear. We're out here. We're out of here. We will come back old guy radio when we return. I'm Tony Kornheiser. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show county. Guy radio for the day. These are the monkeys the reason we're playing this is because we acknowledge the pass it yesterday. Peter Chapman a few days before we decided let's play something by the monkeys. And they believe is very lovely song. It is this is also the late. Great Davy Jones is doing a lead on this. Yes. Very often Micky Dolan sang lead. But Davy Jones has this one. I don't know. How old you feel about the monkeys? I found the monkey. Yeah. I don't think they were not great. Thank pleasant the movie they made head pet a little log cold. Yeah. But the music because they tried to veto the Beatles songs and this one by the way, it was written by John Stewart shortly not Jones Stewart of the daily show. Jon Stewart, a former Kingston trio and reach number one. Yeah. Sixty seven this is one of the big. It's tonight. Neil diamond wrote a bunch of the stuff he read a little bit meet a little bit you. I just so they were very pleasant. Yeah. Let's start with the circumstances beyond our control, which is snow tomorrow in the Washington DC area for about four or five days. Now, people have been predicting a very light snowfall that would affect the morning rush hour, but would have no lasting consequence on the area. As of last night around the six o'clock news, they were beginning to get the sense that it was going to be worse. This morning, Melissa. Malay- was doing cartwheels while doing the traffic because their kids could probably do. Snow? Angels and slide down some hill near her house. Chuck bell literally you had to yet to wipe. The drool off he was so happy to predicted. There would be a big snow the European model apparently has it being three to five inches redefine American model has one two three in the immediate in the immediate metro area less to the south more to the north and to the west Chris you're upset you're upset. You're upset. I here's the problem account people like us knows fun, blah, blah, blah. I have to do the exact same stuff that. I do when weather is nice. Yeah. That's right in the snow changes nothing in I've cart tires on my car from literally the seventies. Right. So it's still haven't changed those. Oh, well, every time I go in the guys like I'm gonna be honest driving has. Buzzer, news your opinion, you are older than we're hitting. Reading about it. Doesn't change anything. Right to do the same crap. Yeah. A snow in the city and significant snow and by the way, turning much much colder for the next week the first week in March aware, high temperatures are going to be in the low thirties just before Tech's with solidly in the high teens and twenties day long. What's it's March shouldn't be allowed to snow anymore. Can we on ankles still a potential Sunday night into Monday event to which was being report? I I'm just not I'm not a fan. People say the climate's getting warmer Chris hiding the story he lives south of the city where it's going to be eight coding, Gary his right to have somewhere. He's trying to get to save Ginny whereas offices, but Chris I'm not coming in here to do the show tomorrow. But I wasn't going to anyone show tomorrow. But I still have to go to the PTA show. I still have to do that. I would hope that by the afternoon. It would wanna know is the temperature supposed to ride I it's it's supposed to get away with. Sunrise, essentially, the snow or whatever it is supposed to stop by seven eight in the morning, and that's wrong all the time three seven to forty three. So it should melt. Have to shovel my tray of miss with every forecast. But I don't think you'll have any issue going to you. So when you say they have missed they haven't all missed because heaven she and on December seventh nailed our last snow February twentieth. Four eight inches and looking work ask now, he says March in like Lamm out like lion nail way. It's an angry lamb. I guess nails. So let me get to the thing that you mentioned in the last segment about Mike McCarthy. Yes. Okay. Did this leads me to I think a legitimate story. Not that that isn't. But Mike McCarthy now is a private citizen. He's not affiliated with any particular team. So his behavior is his behavior. Friend McCaffrey is the coach of the Iowa Hawkeye on he's a rave ING maniac because he the former Penn coach is that that that's not him though. That's dunphy. My he he was at CNN at one point. He's a raving maniac. He's been suspended two games. Not by the big ten by his own school for chasing down a referee. The other night screaming and cursing at him. He does this all the time. He makes Brian Kelly when Brian Kelly was crazy. He may go Ryan Kelley looked like he's sedated. Fred McCaffrey has he's this is local interest to us because Luke Garza who was an all met player at Moraine Michael's, alma mater. My former student right grade English did you have him. And he's a really good player. He said her young man, he's a D one starter. And this guy's nuts. What are we? What are you can? I just read you this just because I was looking up Fran McCaffrey versus Fred Dunphy. This is. Fantasies of say, hey, grad. Right. Speaking of your mom. Thank you, who's a pen grin McCaffrey sell. I know the second paragraph of this week a pediatric he previously served as head coach of Lee, high UNC greens borough Sienna McCaffrey played college basketball for one season at Wake Forest before transferring to Penn and now we get to the key part in his playing days, he acquired the nickname of white magic real. Okay. White magic for him. I mean, I'm not saying he's not a good coach because he is a good coach. I'm saying he's out of his mind, and they have to do something about this comments after all this. He said I said what I said back in the tunnel directly. I didn't want it to be public. I didn't say it on the floor in front of thousands of people. I said what she has done directly to somebody ended up hearing it. Okay. That's unfortunately, ended up hearing the guy who is everybody ended up here. He's sorry. The offended wild kilowatt. He needs. He needs anger management. I'm not saying you take away his job. I'm saying you have to you cannot be so wildly out of control as we have seen him. Right. Overtime, right. Yeah. That's not good. Here's something I want to get to I watched this the other night. I'm I'm one of the few people who goes to banks I go to banks into the Bank. I go in makes deposit I make deposits, I withdraw checks. I man rates. Little. All those up there is now I think its Capital One think it's capital. It is. It is. Banks that are not banks anymore. Cafe a coffee shop. Georgetown, the I one of those ads. I thought it was a spoof. I did. I was like some copy then show you that they have coffee. I guess you can buy tube socks. I can I get my cleaning done here. You're can you buy sporting goods? I don't really understand if it's a Bank. Why are you running away from the notion of the Bank and making it into Starbucks in in Seville in Spain? A can you you're all learn people to no one other than you in my father who by the way carries? My father carries her on hundreds of dollars an actual cats. No reason Arjun money clipper wallet money clip hundred percents. Like, literally a thousand dollars at all eighty bucks. My dad cares. A grand and what does he spend it on? He goes like Dunkin donuts like three times a week. He does not have money, but no one goes into banks anymore, and I guess they think that by putting a coffee place, you might go back in and do more business. Mike this on the experience giving you insights that you're going to sign up for another credit card that you even know what sort of debt you're carrying. But it's all just to try and get you in that door. Even if you to sit down go on public wifi and get your data stole from the Capital One website. And there's one right? There's a Chinatown cafe in Washington. DC Capital One cafes. We made this space for you our cafes or inviting places where you can Bank plan your financial journey engage with your community and enjoy Pete's coffee. That's P P E coffee. You don't have to be a customer get kimchi. So I could use their user wifi out. What is the purpose? Here's mike. What is the purpose of the Bank? It's so it's brand that makes clear it's it's solely brand sort of policy. Bank note does. Shop it doesn't. It's it's it's they are trying to be. Deposit money. Yeah. You can't do it. It's no longer a Bank. Thank biz say, this is the future of banking. What I say is what is banking to you banking. Is you either put in money or you take your the banker banking is divorcing the customer from their money. What banking? Yeah. So I go there. They are trying to make it. They're trying to make it more brand friendly. So that somebody goes in there. So if you're young you're in your twenties, and you're saying, okay, I want to take out a mortgage, you think of them as like, oh, yeah. That's the place with the coffee, right? Michael doesn't. I mean thought if you wanted to mortgage you'd listen to Ricky Fowley get a rocket mortgage. Free money coaching. So you can go in and do the thing we're offering tonight here where you can go in there and. Bank lately. Most of the people don't worry, my not in ten years of the people who work in banks on quite honestly, I don't know that you would feel all that confident. They're alone. There's nobody there when I walked into a Bank. They're so happy to see me his here. I did that recently opened the count for a kid, and it was literally empty here on. If I wanted coffee. I don't know like, okay. Let's just say let's just say I wanted to buy dinner that night. I wanted to buy dinner for the night. I wouldn't go to the CVS. I wouldn't do it wouldn't occur fashion with CBS will soon be basically hospital. Didn't they make changes? Like doctors some reports they're considering a name change to orchids of capital now. The truth is is that they don't care about you as a customer, just like they probably don't care about me at my they care about people Michael's age and younger that's who the going forth. So right for us. Well, this is totally they've already got you going in there. They got their claws in. But whose idea is who says here's a really good idea for something. We're at totally in the money business. So let's have coffee. I don't I don't know. How you get. You want things from the experience what we're talking about is the generational divide. Here you want and expect different things from the transaction. You your expect a transactional thing then and even Michael might be on the high end of of the target. But then that generation who expects to be a I mean, I wouldn't be wouldn't surprise me if they handed your trophy when you walk in there. Can experience. So when I say credit card, what brand do you think of immediately American VRS? Exactly. That's that's where my mind goes to. But that's from the branding that you might have seen in the seventies eighties nineties. When you were younger, you thought you made it professionally when you had the American Express one hundred percent when they accepted me as an American Express. I thought I was an adult, and I thought I had the possibility of success in America. I I if this if this experience can give them that brand loyalty over the next twenty thirty years where people are looking at their first mortgage their kids accounts, it's going to get them back into the banks where so many people have moved away and really all they're carrying his debit cards. And they're and they're young kids today are moving away from credit cards to right because all you're trying to do with a Bank is differentiate yourself in any way, shape or form that isn't we lost all of your money and we're going bankrupt. You know what I mean? Like, it's like what what's Wells Fargo Bank of America capital on. Will this one will be oh, it's the one with the coffee, and they want what they want with these kids. They go one of these out at the now spent eight minutes talking about it, which is a victory burly speaking four zero that's when they're targeting. Twenty two twenty eight's. It's not that they want savings and checking accounts, it's that they want auto loans, and mortgages and loans down the road. They're trying to build that brand loyalty related -ly. Have you seen old man in the gun? No. I have not old stickle going into a Bank movie out, right? Robber effort. You see space. I said. To older people. They rob a Bank he robs a number of banks for him. Yeah. That's the case with a gun. I'm that's his bit. He's a Bank robber charming. It's but it's an old timey kind of feel to it. Because he you know, like what banks does he does your does. He get coffee and any of these banks. There is no coffee. He doesn't he gets caught. Because he checking his Email on the free wifi answer, the Pang. Robbing the Pang what a terrible the supporter. Sorry about that. We'll have Email when we return on Tony Kornheiser.

The Tony Kornheiser Show

1:24:49 hr | 1 year ago

"Melt them down to candles!"

"Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show. I don't WanNa say it's a fascinating story because I don't really know much Out If anybody can talk about it's really oh it's so much fun to just widely speculate. You know without any facts. Yeah it's it's the one area of the world where journalism apply zero consequential. Call you up and say you got it wrong in the Tony Kornheiser show is on now and we continue to make the world safe from mindless wild speculation about the royal family with Tori Clarke Gene. McManus Michael Kornheiser Nigel. Who produced the show? Run the board. Do the news. Just let me clear the decks to get to the royal family of one thing because this is nominally a sports show. I would tell you that the one thing that happened last night that I think is worthwhile not so much talking about but mentioning. Mentioning is the Conn Women's basketball team which has been for fifteen years the gold standard even though they haven't won the national title in recent years. I don't think or maybe they have but avenue one with the dominating way that they won when Brianna Stewart was they are and others were there they lost last night at home to Baylor. Now Baylor has been the national champion couple of times. In recent years coach. Kim Mulkey was very fine. College Basketball Player got in a little bit of trouble a couple years ago when she stood up for Baylor in the in the Cesspool that was their football program but nonetheless there's no indication that she's done anything of a malfeasance quality and she's been terrific basketball they went to UCONN. They beat uconn seventy four to fifty eight and I. I can hear the sound of people turning off on this but just listen for a second beating Yukon anywhere anywhere. Anytime is a very big deal and by the way UCONN will play anyone anywhere anytime. There's not like men's college basketball where duck people now you complex. Everybody Geno AURIEMMA plays as everybody because he's wants to know what's out there for the National Championships. Because that's where he intends to be there. When seventy four fifty eight which I think was the worst loss in Geno auriemma career at at uconn at least in the last eight years for a while they really hold ahead at the end? Yeah Yeah they got a ninety eight game home winning streak Yukon. Last time I lost was two thousand thirteen. This is a ways back two thousand thirteen so this deserves mentioned right and comment. 'cause we like we like I at least I can't say we I liked you. Worry M I know a lot of people don't but what I like about him is he'll play anybody anywhere anytime I I like him because you like them anything about him and all that and you admire the program but I think this is good. For Women's basketball it was boring. It was for amateur fans like there wasn't much reason to check in because you weren't going to see much of games and now you think okay maybe there's hope for others Baylor has done well Notre Dame has done well over the years Stanford has done well a lot of teams South Carolina. I I think has done well. Maryland Maryland has done well. The last three years Baylor one last last year noted in the before that South Carolina before that and then it was Connecticut on a run of four champions. They've got the best players because if you are a great women's basketball player you WANNA play for Gino Auriemma because you're going to have a chance to win championships on. That's important because when you go to the pros it's not nearly as much money as the men and you have to travel overseas to do it most of the time so yes you WanNa play there and yes. He'll play anybody and yeah they lost. They got beat. They got beat down the stretch and I hadn't lost at home in two thousand thirteen and he didn't just play Sacred Heart Twenty Times as a year at home they didn't they played. You know. You WanNa come play. Not only will they let you COMPLA- at their place they'll go to your place play. They'll do that so I mentioned that and now we can get onto into the most important stuff similar family of the by the way to Binghamton when they traveled to North West. We'll play anybody anywhere anytime. Nobody wants. Simplest that we'll happily awfully play. UCLA AT UCLA. Don't really care to place not even your conference Nobody in our conference wants to play. What's new with the Royal Family Tori make an is evil evil? It's Megan Megan. It is all about money. It's all about money. They put out this announcement. They surprised everybody had been conversations with with the Queen and others of Williams in Queens. Not Happy She's not happy. They put out this statement that he's already to go. They had all their comments about the media. Ready to go. They make it very clear they want to make money. And that's what this is about despite getting funded by the state despite getting funded by Prince Charles they the state and Prince Charles have some control over what they spend in and how much they spent this way. They think they can make a lot of money selling. I guess they're Chachi Megan. I'm sure gene talked about this. Yesterday has some acting job in the pipeline. And I'm sure they'll have a netflix series. This is all about money and nothing else. Is that terrible terrible. Why is that because they're royals and you can't have it both ways you can't? What's the name of the place Nigel Frog more? You can't have one foot in fraud more. You have the veneer of being a royal but then be back in North America making money so you don't. You don't seem concerned with the great stress on the family. I zero concert on. I don't think it's all about money because they still have money it. He's got it from his mother's I estate. I think it spite. I think it's money and spite. I think you blame Megan as well. Yeah I do. I think kate was between being superior to Megan while she is and she is. She's the Megan. Didn't like taking a back seat to kate and maybe is much more more proper than Megan and that was hard on family owned moon bounces and when I come on but now line to the protocol and to that point but lot in happy birthday kate yeah right so that seems to be so again. I think every few minutes should just step in and say we are wildly speculating. We basically no nothing. We revealing our prejudices. But what did I read that. Harry Harry that William is really upset the that that they announced this the day before. Kate's birthday and I sat down and I thought I would know the name. I would know the date of my siblings birthdays. I'm not certain I would know the date of my sister-in-law's or brother-in-law's birthdays. I'm not sure that this was says deliberate as this piece in assume the New York Post because the New York Post and the wall you know so I mean what. What do you make of that what you make? I heard they leak did it. They did it as quickly as they did. Because the tabloids had the story in the timeline is that every met with Charles before now's Mary met Sally. No one Harry met Sally and said Look. We want to do this before Chris before Christmas Charles said write it up these Charles. His father proposal proposal legit chat so whilst he was on his six week six week break in Canada. He's rug this up sentence Charles and then requested a face to face with the Queen and he met with the Queen and the Queen was like gramma grandma and she said but she still you know Vito Corleone God bless Lilly she said look. We've been doing this a while. Oh she's good at it. He said we need to wait. You know we need to talk about this very complex thing. There's a lot of moving pieces in this. Yeah so don't say a bloody would would roy until we get our ducks in a row right. And then as Sewri said they got wind Harian and Megan win the thing was going to come out and tabloid so they sent a note and and ten minutes later they released it the phrase that was used for Charles and William was they were incandescent with rage. Now apparently the instigator of this is dead and the brother Yes. We're incandescent with rage. Yes over this announcement. Why that's you know lame on? There's another very simple one word explanation for Megan in Harry's behaviour. Greed millennials millennials with her avocado toast. I'll the so the over the holidays the six weeks there in Vancouver the multi gazillion dollar mansion that supplying somebody else because they need their privacy and they need to recover from all the stress. They're they're working on their flippant website with two PR firms that she had used in her lousy acting career. You really don't like her. But apparently it was oprah was discussing them. Yeah Oprah saying the council beginners. She's only grow. Yes time constantly areas. He's not you do this. You could be on your own. It'll be lovely to a year right. She's got the first interview Naoto. They've already talked about that. Yeah the with Gayle King I guess some of the CBS and it's all brands then CBS. Yeah so yeah. Apparently she was the one encouraging to do it and Michael Your their age. What do you think well I want to go back to Tories idea about? This is all about the money because I think there. There is a defense where some people might say you're creating all these trademarks inner. Doing all this as a defensive move to try and protect your family all your growing family particularly with the past that Harry has and is going to move it on your t-shirt business. Will I have A. I have a label fringe that I'm ready to go. I've already worked at all the kinks of already got contact with the US. PS If they want to go south of the border staples is located China. Jet Printer the DI MO twin printer. The point is at what point does the royal sort of office step in. And just say well you can actually benefit from any of these titles names James Because it's it's protected legally and I understand the whole ideas would be a restriction on the money they could earn. Yes I mean if you think about why you might have incandescent rage if you're the if you're the next in line to inherit everything this is it's not just your profession. It's it's your streets on their own but if you're if you're selling t shirts on the ornery. TORONTO DOT COM. Yeah they're out on their own. They're riding the crest of the royal wave here so in the old days and by the old days I mean what could you just look up the movie the Good Shepherd and tell me when the Good Shepherd was a good movie really good movie and that so in the old days in the fourteen hundreds in the fifteen hundreds in the sixteen hundreds they would simply kill Megan markle right. You disappeared helicopter whereas Megan two thousand six two thousand six those good old days in the Good Shepherd Matt Damon arranged for his daughter law to be thrown out of an airplane off enough with has taken with this. You're risking things So honestly it's going to land on Megan Markle at some point. Five me to Madame Toussaud's for ripping their waxed this. What already? Jesus forty just enough that wax down and turned into a canned last eight days. But aren't they aren't as a result of this. Aren't they more popular than ever as well as being more despised than ever. Aren't they Wallace Simpson dominating time. I don't know I mean everyone. I've spoken to. Now keep in mind. Most of the people I know in England are in prison right. They're all very upset with this yesterday. Yoko Ono yeah yeah I think everybody hated. You just is not Donald. Do I have to by the way. Well I would say if I were chose so you want to be on your own so the ninety five percent of your income. Guess what that's gone. Go get a job at Kinko's petsmart or wherever care so that's what you would do yes cut him off if he wants to be free be free and don't come back and by the way your last name now is Smith. Yeah Harry Smith GOTTA FILL OUT A job. Well he's worked on on NBC harassment. The harassment will it land on Harry. I think in a way but what happens if people like William more thinking I think I think they adore William and kate they do I really do and I think we'll it'll happen. Whoever said yesterday the over under for the marriage with Megan you know maybe five years at that point then will come sheepishly? You know the Prodigal son return home and you know marry somebody who went to high school with quickly works out yes exactly like a third cousin at some point out that no topic on this show in the last five years has gotten much as attention as this one. Not Tom Brady now because this is this good because this is what's fascinating is they are born prince and princess and stuff like like that. We don't have that here. It's not like remember the old days but we had the radio show when Britney Spears was flipping out and cutting all our hair off we with that for about autoweek. But I I. I'm not gonNA say this is endlessly fascinating. It is GonNa go away Charles. And William and the Queen Queen Elizabeth. Do you think they'll actually say something about this. or it'll just be left to the normal reporters Camilla tolmie or whatever her name ms who always reports on the royals that they'll just drop some hints and and it'll be okay to go after Megan markle well if watching the crown is any any indicator. Watch the Family Guy Television. But it's based on history. What if watching that is any indicator? They will not say anything until finally a desperate prime minister arrives on the threshold of the Queen and says has got to step up to the plate. They're not going to do it with big bad. Boris now they don't care about boar. How do you think the story I got leaked? I have no idea I'm just in term I would've assumed some agent of Harry and Meghan did it because they are the ones that are taking the action. I I don't know I mean. Did you say it could to come from the other side. I don't know I don't know I think from the family. Also you do you think he doesn't come from Prince Philip is.

It just seems that there is just such a load of talent compared to other industries like this podcast industry where none of us are any good. Wow Okay it's really. An Hornets joins us now. And I want to. Nigel told me that you went to the American film. Institute suit was at a dinner was at a conference was at some but it was something special and you WanNa tell us about it. Oh I'd love to it. It's actually a lunch at. It's the American in Film Institute's annual AF I awards and I'm on a jury for the film awards Sake give they. Every year they recognize the ten and finest television shows and the ten finest motion picture. I get to be on the motion picture jury and and then they honor the said work at a luncheon at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons or aw swank I gotTa Tell Ya and it's What's their swag? Always the Friday after new years and I always I call it the last civil day the last decent day. Hey because it's nobody wins. You know it's it's nobody is there's no first second third place. You're there because we love you you you sit and have a nice lunch and see all your fellow celebs and stars and creators and we say Nice things about you and you get to go home and you don't have to make a speech and there's no `Paparazzi there so it's kind of the last civilized day of award season and then it gets really nasty so a lot of fun. Well I sit with with my friends at at a five because the thing. Are you ready for a long story so I joined the jury this long shaggy dog story but but I joined the jury a few years ago and I was very honored to be included. Sure and and Bob Ghazali the wonderful. CEO OF F. I said you know we have. This is lunch you can come. You don't have to come whatever and a friend of mine who have gone to this before said. Oh you gotta go because it's really fun and it's very intimate head and it's just a fun seen so I thought well I'll go. I'll turn it into kind of a work trip and I'll stay in. La for a few days and get some reporting them. And when I landed. They have left an frantic voicemail. Saying 'cause back right away we need you. A flu had gone through the town. I mean everybody was was toppling from this bad flu. Including the guy from our jewelry who would stand up and read all the and COMU- to every film they they you you read something Nice about the film and then they showed a clip and they said please. Can you get up and do it. Meaning can get up and do it in a crowd full of with Meryl Streep and Tom Tom Hanks Steven Spielberg and you know I mean it was just like I was so nervous. I was secret AD. It's like you better use the dod. It's like what's her name. What's the woman's name bring make up? You know anyway so I do remember. That seemed Tilda. Sweden and Michael Clayton. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Okay Yeah thank you. That is exactly what it was but I didn't follow over over and they said Oh you did great. Come back and do it next year. So now that's my thing. Oh Wow views. The new. I'm the new person. Stands up there and tells them how great they are. Isn't that wonderful. Who who was there anybody there who you met who you chatted with just even briefly? The only you know what I do I have to say. Hey I I here's my. Here's my rule of thumb went in those situations unless I have something specific and helpful to say to someone someone I I tend not to go up and Chadema just to chat them up. I just I 'cause I just feel like you know they. They get it all the time. They don't need another person running up just to say they got to talk to Brad Pitt or something like that you know I did he was. It's really interesting though because I'm usually there early 'cause I am. I'm still nervous and I get there early early just to kind of do a little tech SPEC and all that and invariably there's like a little reception outside the ballroom and then people trickle in and there's a a Lotta schmoozing but like one year but invariably there's one person who's the first one and like the star you know wanders in and they're the only one there they're one year it was Sam Elliott and he was just standing in the centre of the rooms and I then I was like Oh my God you know say something and I. I had out to restrain myself because I just think he's the best and then the other day it was Brad Pitt. He just sort of walk in and stood and was looking around. And you know I. I don't know my tendency. Here's to leave him alone unless unless they have something to hear from me that they need you know or or or you can use so I really didn't. I didn't talk to them. I glad glad you have that job. That's a cool job dumped. Yeah we got the flu. Is he dead or did he recover now Tom. He's he's I think that's have compost a long long long time. He's a dean of Hollywood executives and he's very graciously I don't I don't know the machinations of all that but they are very the F. is great I have to say go to Youtube and see they. Every year they do a montage called the march of time and it's movies he's Over the course of and they take it so this year was twenty nineteen that we were honoring so every year that ended in a nine they. They showed clips of movies from that year and it is spectacular. Can I can I talk about some movies with you recently. Here you saw few. I've got Adam. I don't know that you and I talked about bombshell. If we didn't talk about bombshell I'll just make this very very brief. I tired of it because I had seen the Russell Crowe series and so it offered nothing new to me. The only thing that I would say about it is it made and Charlie Iran is amazing. Me She really is Megan Kelly. It's amazing to me I mean yeah. It's it's amazing but I would. I would just say this. I thought that sort of ROIC figure is Gretchen. Carlson her name and this movie made her into be not as important as Megan. Kelly I it was a little surprised by that and a little off. Put by that interesting. I think you can make that argument. I mean I still think her story comes across as her ROIC and there's no doubt out she's the you know what I think what it did is it showed how silo these women were and how you know that scene in the elevator later. That's in the trailer standing there. And they're not talking to each other which is just such a metaphor for us and for how we're kept apart from one another and Manipulated into into competing in unhealthy ways So but I take your point that in terms of pure screen time and focus and kind of showing us. You're right that was the show your role and that that was the that was a story. We were following good and Margot lobbying and I don't took anything away from get rush. You Know I. I came away with such a respect for Gretchen Carlson. And what did she was out there on her own And so I. I don't think it anything away from her accomplishment and she's but you're right that it wasn't her story I'm GonNa move on because I saw afford versus Ferrari and I need to get Nigel his screener back I loved Ford Versus Ferrari. I had one small complaint. I will tell you this. That Matt Damon is is a great actor and everything Matt Damon does. He is completely believable in Conway Christian. Bale this is a slight criticism. The only parts of the movie that bothered me. I guess is Christian. Bale when he's in the car alone and he's gotTa have I tics and lip chicks and he's got to show you. Hey this is me. I'm acting John. I'm in the car I know it's just me in the car but let me show you what I can do. And so that I thought the movie was a little bit too long but I love the movie. I know you did too. I loved it I just thought it was super. I just think it's one of those. It's just that kind of movie and I say this all the time you know that they don't make anymore but just it was just so invigorating. Funny funny well. The racing sequences were beautifully done executed. Frankly for my money. The best scene was with Tracy Letts as Henry's in the car. Oh my God that's one. I just I was like you have me. You know I'm yours. I thought it was terrific. And that's not going to get nominated for anything thing and I really liked that. Allow move on once upon a time in Hollywood which I saw the other night okay. Once upon a time in Hollywood is you know like I feel. You'll like I feel like Charlie Brown when Lucy pulls the football away every time I get to the end of a Quentin Tarantino movie. And he's gotta make apocalyptic can he's got to rewrite history and I loved inglorious bastards loved it but I can watch it all the time. I mean every movie ends. I mean. He's walking doc in US right down the line with the tate labianca murders and Charlie Manson right down line. There's a scene in that movie. Where Brad Pitt goes into see who is ultimately gently Bruce dern that's a great a main rate seen area but by the end of the movie you go? He did it to me again he did it to me. What do you think of that? I totally agree. I don't it I knew. I think I knew by the time I saw. I knew that it wasn't that it was going to be that revisionist thing what I don't get that. So I didn't I didn't feel Hoodwinked or anything. But I didn't I don't understand it you know. I don't understand what we're supposed to get from it. I thought the I thought the tone that that kind of sweetness of that ending did move me. And it was very bitter sweet wait and melancholy and kind of endearing that he wanted to wrench a happy ending out of that thing. I don't understand what we're supposed to do with this other than just be like. Yeah wouldn't it be pretty distinct so I find it kind of I kind of find June. You know to to use a twenty five cent where it just. It seems like a the film making is beautiful. This Matafi is gorgeous. I think Brad Pitt. They're great capiot and pit or great great. Now the the Leo scene with the Little Girl and and that whole that whole sequence. I thought was really interesting but I just at the end of the day. I'm with you I WANNA stand. I don't understand that impulse and don't understand what we are supposed to get from it. Okay we move on. We move onto a movie that I saw last night that I considered hundred percents vile one hundred percent vile I. It's not that I hated it. As much as the characterizations and the pace of it in the frenzy of it bothered authored me. Even though I watched even language bothered me and I watched every second of it uncut gems and I just thought. Are you kidding me with this. I mean this is the I mean you can say that Adam Sandler does a great job in a serious role down but his character is utterly vile as why the characters of I think everyone in in this movie what do you think well I was I was. This isn't experience as you know I mean it's like a pulse pounding it's a it's a Day in the life of this compulsive gambler the camera never leaves him. You're with them the entire time. He's on this kind of increasingly desperate and stupid self-defeating stupid everyone. Every moment compound his own stupidity two three four five fold so it just it comes uh-huh it just becomes oppressive you know in terms of his own desperation But you're right you know. I think it's a showcase for him. I I did think think I mean I did th again technically I think is very impressive Yeah that's one where the ending just I just was like come on. I did think though and you tell me about the way that they folded in that real life game you know. I thought it was really ingenious. I mean do you remember that. Yep that particular basketball game. Don't between the between the Celtics and the sixers I don't I don't remember it. But if you have the idea of writing something and Kevin it's going to be in your movie. This is why you put him in. I was really that was very interesting and intriguing and well done and I thought Kevin Garnett was really good. Good did a great job. There's a lot the people in that movie I didn't I didn't I can't say that I enjoyed them. Okay I was also watching it as an old man and realizing that the great divide in my I was it was presenting at various parts. What is commonly referred to as the hip hop culture? And I didn't get it at all I was like wow. I didn't get it at all. I now let me get to the the last asked one. Wow which is the weirdest movie of the year honey. I'm so impressed. Who Decides Who Green Lights a Hitler movie sixty years later this is Joe Joe Rabbit Joe Joe? Rabbit has performance by Scarlett Johansson. That is worthy of winning. Whatever award? Very much for Saints Tremendous Scarlett Johansson is is tremendous in this movie Sam Rockwell. Who I like in everything I like in this movie yet? But this movie is too weird for words I don't know if it's great. I don't know if it's just a joke now. It's great I loved it but you're right. This is a an audacious highwire highwire act. If ever there was one should we. Should we set it up for the listener so it takes place during World War One and a little I world war. What ties thinking? That's the big one team for two and a little boy nine or ten Has His father is away fighting. He's at home with his mom he has has become. He is one of those young people whose only grown up knowing Hitler and has drunk kool-aid and buys it one hundred percent and wants to be the Hitler youth in the worst way and it's about his journey Out of that or Willie go really grew out of it or Willie. Not and and to the point. Where he's taken Hitler on his imaginary friend that's Harvey the rabbit? And Hitler is played by the Director and the writer. TYCO I t I did such a better job with his name just now than I did at the actual So it's it's a you're right. It's a weird movie. It's a comedy. It's a coming of age comedy Hitler Bugler coming of age comedy. It's hard to deal with that. But you know but you know to the point where it af I last week at the lunch. None other than Mel Brooks himself showed up to sort of give the give the to launch the lunch. If you were to say some welcoming words and he said where is he gonNA tea and everybody pointed and he said you made a terrific movie. Oh boy yeah he kinda gave him anointment of like you know this is hard to do. I've I've done it now. You've done it and go forth and prosper and it was really touching moment but I do think it worked. I know that Some people find it in questionable taste. I understand why but here's why I loved it. I saw it through the lens of that that heroic mother that scarlet Johann Suze rate and she is watching this little boy teeter on the brink of moral disaster. You know and you can kind of see her trying trying to pull him through without making a big deal of it. That's writing and grow out of it himself but still guiding him gently to the right thing and as a mom I you know I think all of us as parents see our children you know they make dumb choices and you worry about them you worry about their physical health but sometimes you do worry about their character and now you worry about the choices they're making and that's where I that's what I saw it as an it moved me deeply and I just thought it was I did think it was hilariously a funny And for a good you know for good cause so I it worked for me but I understand. It doesn't it's not gonNA. It's this kind of movies. Never GonNa work for. Everyone Ezekiel about Pol Pot coming out with Pol Pot. But it's also got that kind of Wes Anderson very precious visual style that that some people are alienated from. But I thought it was just I just know when you when you watch these movies. You always find somebody who you love There is in this movie. It's not a spoiler situation and there's a little fat kid lost. He's the best thing in the movie. He's great he's just I don't know who he is little fat cat. I thank you and thank you thank you. I'm going to find his name and we'll do that next time. Van Horn a day boys and girls We'll take a break and we will have news but we will also have Jeff Mind James Carville so we really not going to have much news. I'm Tony Kornheiser.

James Carville joins us now. James was one in one last week. He had the bowl game right. He had the pro game wrong but he's twenty three and sixteen. You can hear James's podcast this right twenty twenty war room inside the war room twenty twenty something like that. That's correct okay. Okay good thanks Gabrielle. Now all right. So what do you got for us like. This is the most anticipated college football game of the century. Doc I will. I will agree with that. I agree with them. And if Lsu wins they will go down as the most exciting football team in history hundred fifty a history of college football. I don't know about that but you know really other team more exciting news team. Well I the the one thing that I would say is the liner Bush Bush teams at USC. I thought were were pretty exciting. And of course at my age OJ Simpson at USC. Whatever whenever exciting team wind and it will be the first team in History College football defeat? Seventeen when they play to win a top camp. They're not saving fabulous. Yeah it come on. There's nothing if they win this game. It will be nothing like it. In the history of flip. And Joe Borough has fifty five touchdown passes but he is the all time leading completion percentage in college football. He's played the hardest schedule. Maybe in the history of college football. All right I I you cope McCoy and running up the skull. CANTU STATE I. I'll give you. I'll give you these things. I'll give you these things and they're gonNA do it. You're going to give five and a half and six points five and a half so you gotta give or take okay. They've convinced me I. I'm took Catholic and to lower. I can't believe I'm seeing. This is all going to fall apart. You know I don't like lay if I mean they just they are really good. Clemson is really good to really good. Yeah I mean like in lost game. Two years it'd be Alabama forty four sixty. It's it's sort of not their fault that their scheduled broke the way it did this year but they destroy people and their quarterback is right there with Joe Borough the is right there and the only way you can be the best. Is You have to beat the best and after we got to do so if Clemson were to win this game you. It would be back to back championship undefeated. Yeah undefeated you. Can't what can you say all and what else you got in the pros. Yeah I Green Bay line four Seattle plus four if you had Seattle plus four. Yeah that's what I'm looking at at Green Bay at Green Bay and what's Minnesota at San Francisco Seven. I would take Minnesota's you take Minnesota. I went to the game I had to say I thought the saints are going to. I know that they were flat. I I too much into minnesotans performance but the difference pretty good and they they feel like a little bit like might be coming around here toward Lhasa Game. Green Bay I. I've Kinda like okay you you like Minnesota plus seven Minnesota plus like LSU modest five and a half okay. That's great we root for you. Please thank you James. Good luck with that. Got Beat a best most exciting team in one hundred and fifty year of college football. And we'll do what we'll do. You know documentary on that. Yeah yeah to the dock they will they will be many. Okay thanks James James Carville boys and girls who is completely enamored of Lsu as as as he should be yes. I'M WE'VE GOT Jeff Jeff. Marr joins US now. His his podcast. Everybody in America has a podcast. And they're all sponsored by me on these Jeff's podcast with Rufus. PEABODY is called bet the process and Jeff was one to last week but is forty three thirty thirty nine and one over the course of the year which means you bet with. Jeff Ma you make money. What have you got for us this week? Jeff I'm going to pick all the games including the college game. Good start with the first game. Which is Minnesota and San Francisco Just goes giving seven seven. Minnesota was really surprising last week. And even if you think about that New Orleans game it it really didn't seem like a fluke they they New Orleans islands was lucky to be in that game in the first half they had obviously the pace them hell long passing turnover And I really feel like Minnesota only let New Orleans back back in. That game was very conservative. Like All San Francisco's a team. That's over performed expectations all season But I think some points is too many career. I like the underdog Minnesota plus seven points. Are you worried about Adam Phelan. Having you know stitches in his ankle or something like that. Yeah I mean. I think that that's a concern. Obviously who saw last week. How big is that offense? And you know having playmakers that can make adjustments to make the plays lizzy stooge but. I'm hoping that he will be okay. Playing this game and and be effective because he I definitely do these important. What else take Baltimore Baltimore minus the ten against Tennessee? Obviously I was against Tennessee. Last week And you know they talk a lot on the broadcast about Burke Henry and Tannahill and all that but the reality Tennessee only scored fourteen points offense. They obviously got the last touchdown in Baltimore has been a team. That's good historically good. This year in terms of how they performed so I think ten which is a big number is is is not actually enough And I like Baltimore here my the Baltimore's been absolutely great and the thing about Tennessee has Tennessee tries to shorten game by handing off to Derrick Henry. Thirty Times a game. Baltimore's real good. They are real good. Uh I agree with you on that one. What else but I take Houston plus the ten Lou against Kansas City Obviously the line here is is is is a pretty big line because of Jason Looking Pretty Mediocre and Kansas City Having a tons of offense being super explosive in really feeling like they've they've gotten in there you know found their way but I think there's too many getting. Jj Watt back was was important for Houston On defense and I think that you know one more game under his belt. You'll be more effective this week Just I like this here. So you're not worried that Bill O'Brien will do three to five stupid oop things and take his team out of range. Of course I'm worried about that. I mean you gotta situation. Also where where Andy Reid contend to be pretty conservative in these situations so you could see You could certainly see Kan city when Where they get conservative towards the end of the game and could have could have won one by more but ended up winning only by seventy seven to nine points at the fourth one is Seattle? I've got plus four. You're maybe a different number at Green Bay and this is the one game where we think. Wow did Seattle's been so great on the road that maybe they can actually win this one outright. What you have in that one? Yeah I'm thinking we're four four and a half I I like Seattle. I Green Bay as a team that has sort of confused. Analytics people believe in They've consistently been that against by the sharp batters and you know there may be some sort of intangible that aren't being measured by analytic. Maybe they are simply glee better than their numbers say but I'm willing to take a chance on Seattle with the points against the Green Bates that I just don't think that great okay and let's get get to the college game that Carville James Carville believes will if Lsu wins mean LSU's the greatest team in the history of college football all maybe he's right if just because of the teams they would have beaten if they beat Clemson as well. Who Do you like in that one? I like Clemson. Actually I mean this is a listening to situation situation where you know. Let's say six weeks ago. This game has been played. The lion would've been clemson. Almost certainly would have been favored in that time. LSU is obviously done two minutes impressive things but to be honest Clemson has also and we forget that this is a Clemson team. Has this arguably the best quarterback in the country or at least the one. If you've lined up Joe Borough and Trevor Lawrence against other. I think it's a lot of NFL. Scouts would take Trevor Lawrence in front of Borough You get Clemson. You know playmakers which are I think better better than LSU's And you're getting five and a half points. I think this game should be much closer to even and so do I clemson will win. I mean I think they have a chance for sir. Yeah but if you're giving me five and a half points I'm definitely going to take on would you would you. Lsu were to win this game and would have beaten so many teams that at the time they played aigdirect in the top ten. Would you say to yourself. You know it's possible they're the best college football team ever I mean I probably not simply because they had some bad sometimes early on like they they gave up a lot of points to Texas. They gave up a ton of points in Alabama. Like they're not I mean I do think yes. They've they've beaten everyone that's gone fun of them I think we especially you know me we we overrated Oklahoma all season. They getting beat by a live team so if they go and they dominate Clemson. Maybe if this is a close game where they barely beat Clemson for sure. There are a deserving of the essel championship on a you know a great all-time team but I don't know if I would say the best about best-ever thank you jeff. Good luck with this. You lose them now.

Beat them than we are that's yes Some Ghani Mills maybe one of the mills brothers. Yes twenty two points. Sam Mills Sam Sam the Sham sessoms twenty and you held their leading scorer K J Jackson two zero points. Shut down the AMOEBA defense. That's how you do it right so big big win for you guys Some stuff going on around the NBA. Joel embiid is going to be out there operating on his hideous finger raunch they should do but they get a nice win last night with all all of the sudden don't seem to know how to win yes And was the coach the cavaliers. How do you pronounce his name? John Beeline who left. Michigan left a very cushy job at which he was very good to go to the pros to coach the Cleveland Cavaliers. The team hates him and they've hated him all year because I think he's a college guy they don't think he understands the pro mentality and the other day while referring to his team he called him a bunch of thugs oops Lund said. He wanted to call him a bunch of slugged but he said my assistance told me I used thugs so I just want to apologize for that. I you know it's it's not you know it's not gonNA work but if they already hate him. Here's just yeah that's right it's not gonNA work And did you want to talk about Westbrook. was that was. I just went back to Oklahoma City. got a real big hand. Yeah Yeah so so. He played that correctly all the way down the line. Yes can we talk about Pete. Dye passing away. Yes into Michael. Because he's one of the very important golf architects. Yes a he he passes away ninety four a sadly he he follows his wife Alice who passed away last year. And he's the father if he's the father of modern Gulf architecture you really have to look at the pair over the last couple of decades is how how they've returned to some of these very famous works and became a partnership she was involved in so much of the design and really the choices. Yes so Your son P B is golf designer to. Yeah yeah this when you first think of a die course you come back to the refrain of diabolical. And you think of a penalty areas that are extreme if you miss a greener going into a huge huge bunker but there is a balance of beauty with the difficulty. These became super famous because they attracted a lot of tour venues and so in tour players. Don't like having to make choices voices and one of the things that Di- did as he made you commit to your choice if you think about the most famous holy designed you're probably thinking of seventeen at T- saws. I absolutely where where you're looking at the. You're looking at the pond. The island green a win trying to get everything right any for off by just a fraction. You're in it destroys around but that's part of a larger finish. I think for for a lot of his career. He was not necessarily as appreciated as much as he should have been A. I think recently people have started to turn particularly because they've returned to a lot of those works and they've they've amended some of those issues right now you've had people some of the most famous architects like Tom. Doak who have cited sighted die as some of their main influences. So it's it's interesting to see how that does turn. We have whistling straights coming up next year. which is another one of his designs that will put his work back on center stage? But you mind if I just go to a quick positive story in the world of golf shirt right now. We have the Sony Open in Hawaii. I don't really want to focus on. The Patrick read cease and desist letter. Any the sort of bad news coming out of there but Michelle. We announce the other social media that she's pregnant with With her husband Johnny West who Jerry. West's son so this is granted his time you wear. It's impossible not to remember when she emerged on the tour as a teenager. Alid Indie two thousand four Sony Open and held around own and she's a struggled with injuries of the last couple of years but it's she's taking a few different career paths going into the TV Boucher work at the mass says she's great on TV. She is great rage. She has a wonderful humor and warmth to her personality that she shares on Instagram but really excited to see this next chapter anything. That's a hot woman store but I have another one for you. What We'll take you to Brenton Florida where Florida man woke up in the middle of the night to find another man sucking on his toes. Yeah say the police say the man we sleeping in his bed when he woke up and realized he wasn't alone he assumed he was being robbed and he told the intruder. I don't have any money and the intruder said I am not here to rob you. I'm here to chew you bubble gum in suck your toes. And I'm on a bubble gum. So that's when the man sounds like a canned line that sounds like something that actually just made that he said he did say I'm only hid. Suck on your toes. Yeah the intruder The men sleeping in the bed then punched him enforce them outside while whilst they rolled outside The intruder said he had a gun and then tried to get overly familiar with the man. The man continued hit the intruder for about thirty seconds before running inside and calling nine one one. At this point the intruder broke out the front window on the home and stopped the other man's car windshield until it broke. By the time investigators had arrived the man had disappeared the catch him they have not. They used canine but they were not able to track them down. So this to- sucker is someone Brayden Florida. Yeah that's disgusting. I think you'd have to wear socks with the sleeping side away. My dog hurt her foot today. Yes how was she. I know she's got to go to the vet. She do. She cut her foot. We were out in the back throwing frisbees and then I noticed when she came into the house there was a trail of blood every Tongji stepped and I had to figure out which port was. And it's a left front paw- And you know you try to DAB it and it didn't. She was limping. She how she doc was totally unaffected Ronnie Lott. She was totally unaffected by it We had to you know. Our carpets are filled with pawprints filled with bright red blood. I hope this stuff comes out with resolve. I don't know but then she began to lick her paw. Then it dried up a little bit and then we put and by we. I mean I put a band aid on her on her paw like normal bandaid no big a big patchy one and then Carol put Does around not gaws no. It's it's stuff that seals it you know that holds it down self adhesive tape of some sort. Oh and then dog began to holder older. pull up because she had you know Oliver Pharmacist. She said what's going on. Cut Put me in. Yeah so I I recommend Kenwood vet offer of a road fabulous. I I think that's where Carol goes where she wants to go. We've gone on and on and on which you're well all right Wish Chessy well and I won't even talk about my illness from yesterday. So and we'll get outta here. I'm Tony Kornheiser.

The smartest way to hire. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser Kornheiser Show Guy Radio for the day. This guy radio for the day. He said twice because Mike wasn't on completely the first time. This is Rod Stewart Stewart Maggie. May this came out. I believe in nineteen seventy one. And I know that because when I used to drive to cover the US Open which was then held at forest hills else in my Ford Pinto with personalized license plates. Dos Seventy two. I used to listen to this song all the time because I I love this song. We didn't have the choice of putting our own songs on radio at that point but everybody in New York was playing this Song Rod Stewart is a unique talent. Here's If you talk about the great rock and roll voices of all time. Whatever you list is Rod Stewart has to be on your list? I mean he's just tremendous. He started with a group called small faces. Anyone they went out on his own and was a big hit and Ian Poulter. Looks just like them for you. Golf Fans Judy loved Rod Stewart. Not Quite in line where you are. I would toss Brian over today for Rod Stewart. And I would even even when he does the great American songbook and screeches through a bunch of songs. I think. He's Great Yeah Big Fan. I this reached number one soul singers. Okay Rod so K.. Although Rod Stewart comes relatively close given the fact that he's a Brit to get not as close as Eric Burden to the soul line but but he comes relatively close certainly differently than Dave Clark. A- iceman up their butler. Yeah Okay Gervin. I don't think that the iceman let's bring in Mike Freeman from From bleacher report. Those of you who think the ice man is is George Gervin freemen. You know the ICEMAN is Jerry Butler right I did I did not know. Oh He's the ice man to young. It is man now. You're too young too young. No you gotta ask somebody who knows somebody else King Jerry Butler all right. So let's get there. A A lot of there are a lot of games that are going to be played. There's a lot of NFL news. There's a lot of stuff on the table moving right now in real time and then there's the most important the story in the NFL which has nothing to do with anything. That's going to be played this weekend and that is Freeman Tom. Brady what is going on with Tom. Brady yeah I think he's still sort of deciding what to do. I think he's GonNa play. I think the issue was where. Yeah it's not. It's not set set in stone. He goes back to the page. I think that's what's going to happen. Probably it's the best guess but Neither side is really really doing anything right now. They're just sort of taking stock. Seeing where they are Brady wants to play though Brady wants to play and and the Patriots decide. They don't want Brady he's GonNa play somewhere he'll be but what will probably happen is they will figure it out. And he will stay and he'll retire Patriot but you he really really wants to play. And he doesn't want his career in the way it ended so I think you're going to see them in the League next year. Probably I think what the Patriots but neither side right now sort of thing. It's almost like a game of poker. They're trying to see which one Who who wants to do what a- and is still deciding Tony so let's get to that You can you're saying now. There is history of this Joe Nemeth finished out with the Rams Johnny United's I went somewhere else. Joe Montana when still effective went to Kansas City. Peyton manning who couldn't lift his arm went to Denver but won a super bowl most of the time. I am one when older people and Brady's really old when they go somewhere. It's just for one year. It's okay but it's it makes you a little bit sad. You're putting putting on the table that you could. You don't expect it but you could see him with another team. I I look at it. I feel this way felt this way about Nemeth who wore the same number number twelve. I look at that Jersey with number twelve. I'd just I can't I can't see him somewhere else. It's it's really really hard to think. Because he's been there so long and done so much as a Patriot he's not transformed the position But I still think it's it's possible awesome. I don't think it's one hundred percent that he goes back. I just think I do think it's almost under presenting plays again and when you bring up all those other grades is All really good name. Ah especially Montana had a really good year when he went to Cassie did he. Yes he did And and here's the thing with Brady Tony. I think you know this. He you know pretty can still play really well. It doesn't it didn't look like at a time didn't but I mean I'm just. This is just my feeling when I look at that offense. It's just it just wasn't much there and he I think he he had the worst offense he's ever had as a Patriot so That was definitely plays a part in all all of that. I still think if you took Tom Brady gave him some really good weapons. He'd be incredible. I still think that I. I'm maybe in the minority. I duNNo. I'm with you in this regard if he gronkowski and Antonio Brown they'd win the Super Bowl there were not. I mean that would be really really good and you would not. We're not having any questions about this. And he I don't think there's any question he'd be back so that that leads to to this question and this is I think this is the critical question. We know where Robert Kraft is as we think. We know where Robert Kraft is that he wants Brady backed up definitely right. I want to. And there's every indication that Brady would like to be back so the guy with the power in this I think or maybe doesn't have the power. Maybe the coaches power isn't as high as the owners power but it seems to me the guy with the power bill belichick who is an unsentimental human being who has cut people and likes to cut people the year before they go down the drain and has done this with a variety of Patriots over a twenty d. year career to your knowledge whereas Bill Belichick. Tom Brady you hit on some really good points I i. With Robert Kraft Robert Kraft wants him back but Robert Kraft seeds a lot of the football power. Almost all of its ability. He lets bell to do what he wants to do. And it has worked worked out pretty well. The only time kraft gets involved. If there's something controversial player they wanNA sign Or something like that something. That is sort of out of the norm. Then he gets involved with pretty much. Have total run the football part of that franchise and you hit on the other big thing. History is Cut some ready to do one on your own Yahoo years early and sometimes most of the time he's right sometimes he's wrong what he's done with Brady goes against everything. He's done his entire career. Keep an older guy around but brady is so damn good. He has no choice he has to and he wants to he. They re he really loves Brady. He's just not good at expressing it and I mean if you saw in the NFL whenever he did where he embraced sitting down and talking it was like a love fest. They really do like each other respect each other. It's just not a real close relationship but it's a good one The data he is six wild caucus bell chick. His instinct is Tom. Brady's forty something years. I mean. We can't do this. Let's just move on and go to a younger guy. That's and what he does but I think he I think he is thinking Brady can still do it. I need to get people around him. We bring him in for another one or two years and see how it goes. I I think that's what he's thinking but you know you just would him. It's hard to tell because he he doesn't say much he is he. He lacks sentimentality in and these kinds of things. He's very very cold. This is the football decision. I'm GONNA do this. This is it and so. That's sort of Wild Cardinal. This will take sort of say. I think I think he's got a little bit of time left let's see what we can do or have become the delta that we know it's time to move on well one of the things that you look. The cat is the decision two years ago to let Jimmy Garoppolo go. I don't know who they have behind Brady. But he ain't Jimmy Garoppolo Jimmy Garoppolo still in the playoffs and sitting on a team team that that got a bye in the first week. What was the engineering on that one? Mike what was the that that is a really interesting point. Because I think embellish mind. He doesn't quite think that way when bill six mind he thinks I'll find somebody. Oh I'll how draft someone. I'll bring someone I'll be okay. I think he's he. He knows he's not going to get another. Tom Brady right. I mean they'll never be another Tom Brady. But but belts expand everywhere in everything and seen everything. He doesn't think I'm not letting Tom Brady go because I got no one else he thinks I'll I'll figure it out and many times he does now. It will be different with how Tom Brady. We'll see how that goes. But he he he. I guess what I'm saying is he's mostly pretty fearless. He doesn't approach things from a point of fear he approaches things from a point of I built teams. Built this team build another another one. I think that's how he thinks okay. Let me shift to another quarterback and I guess I found this unexpected but in talking with some people at the PTI Show yesterday. I didn't do it because I was sick. But we prepped at a little bit. There's some notion that drew brees might not return to New Orleans. I find that more unbelievable than Brady playing somewhere else. I can't imagine that you breeze and Sean Payton wouldn t it up again. Even though they've had three snake bit heartbreaking losses. This is in a row. Do you hear anything about brees. Not Coming back as possible. But we're going from DELTEC TO PAYDEN. It's polar opposite. Peyton aiden is an breeze. A very close. Yeah Sean Payton is a vastly under coach. a really talented smart guy. One of the best defensive mind I've ever seen probably in the history of the sport and loves drew brees and drew brees can still play so I think the only thing they wanna work. Ah The economics of visas CAP head is huge so there may be worried about that but that stuff can usually be worked out and I think some paying wants him back and I think the reas- wants let's go back. I'm not saying that'd be shocked but I of the two situation that one strikes me more as breeze would come back right more likely Only paid likes them so much. The only thing that was stopped at the economics I drew brees to still play. I mean here's the thing with both of these guys They're older are slowing down or they were they. Are they what they were ten years ago. Obviously not But they're still really effective the really good players so that's sort of what both he seems to think. And I know you don't pay thinking that Sean Payton's thinking I have a really good player. Isn't this one of the wildcard. He's got some good quarterbacks on that roster I mean bridgewater is fantastic. He just. We haven't seen him much but he can play so so. That is sort of the wild car with that. Situation was a little bit but I I think Peyton wants to read back and I think he'll be back there four games this weekend. This is the best weekend of the year because we we've eliminated the wildcard junk and now we have what we think to be the best eight teams Minnesota at San Francisco Seattle at Green Bay Tennessee at Baltimore more Houston at Kansas City. What is the most likely upset to you or do you see no upsets? Because all home teams are favoured. I don't see any upsets upsets I don't like the Viking senses Houston possibly but I just don't of the the wildcards always produce these kinda crazy moments but you tend to see in the divisional round the dominant team. Settle in and and I think that's what you'll see I. I mean we could come back here a week from now and the Ravens could have been upset but I just don't see them losing another game. I'm just to be honest. I mean the barring some kind of crazy injury. They're so good and they got so good so fast like overnight because Lamar Lamar Jackson but also they transform that defense into really fast powerful. Good defense So I don't see any upsets and I just I see the teams we think will win to not only win but the dominant and I watch them all this. Okay well we'll see In past years we've talked about the NFL's ratings going down the NFL's ratings are up across the board. They'd like really up. Why do you think that is this? It's crazy I I don't know and I can't really find anyone who could give me a really cogent explanation and I just it's I think part of it is some of it is just really good stories. They're just the. NFL has a lot of like controversies in crazy stuff and people like it. It's like a soap opera and honestly the play overall has been tremendous and they're developing a new crop of stars so some of it that Some of it is the scares of of. CT and head. Injury stuff has sort of Wayne and people aren't. We used to sort of look get it and I still do but some people used to look at football. Can't watch it anymore because I'm worried about what it's doing to those guys and now they've sort of gotten over that and they moved moved on from that so all those people who are thinking. They're not gonNa Watch football again or not watching. They are and they're not watching basketball basketball ratings down across the board down. Nfl Up in and and what. What the legal say privately is that They think people have decided that it's football as it not going to go to any of the sport just maybe casually but football's one they everyone's sort of settled on and it sounds self serving obviously but it's Kinda true I mean you you just mentioned. NBA Ratings. I think a lot of Americans have decided that and it's made this. This is clear for couple of decades but really now that football over. All the controversies all the other stuff. Yeah like the sport and it's their sport now. That's that's what I think. I think people have just sort of said. Okay we're done with the kneel downs and we're done with the protests and it gives us something we really like to watch even in the regular season whereas if you look at an NBA game on a Wednesday night in the regular season you wanna rip your your ears off you go. What am I watching? Why am I doing this? It has no meaning that that sport has no meaning till the playoffs and the NFL. I think has meaning weaken. We don't you. I do every every week every game really really counts. It's like one. NFL Game as ten NBA game. That's what I think. And and people and they and you and honestly just from covering week-to-week two week every day it I gotta say it's like compelling stuff I mean it's on the watch I cringe at some of the hits. I see happening. But it's still. It's still really compelling storylines and and I'll tell you too when you have guys like Lamar Jackson come into the league. It just AH wants to see Michael Jordan. So that's thank you frame and talk to you soon. Thank you guys. Mike Freeman boys and girls bleacher report. What why why does the second time today? You've done that.

Dear Mr Kornheiser their doctor. Dr Corn is your observations of the Moon's position the sky seeming to be higher lowers correct. And it was that we couldn't see the full moon today because it was too cloudy up similar to how the sun is higher in the sky during the Northern Hemisphere summer the moon's position in the sky can be higher or lower but it's not associated with any season. Just that the moon's orbit is inclined to the Earth's equator tonight. The moon will pass directly overhead for people near the tropic of Cancer. This is about as high in the sky as it gets combined with the cold clear skies. It makes me an impressive sight. The observation that the moon appears to move faster as it sets optical illusion probably because there are trees and other objects like the Little House to measure the movement by whereas the moon is high in the sky when the moon is high in the sky. It's harder to measure its movement. Thank you. That's very very good from John Davis in Murfreesboro Tennessee. I wasn't surprised to hear that. Prince Harry and Meghan leaving the kingdom but I was surprised to hear that they're moving to the big east from steep cy on burlingame California when Prince Harry and William served in the military they both use the last name Wales given their fathers designation as the Prince of Wales on a related.

So I didn't know that the night before you and mom had grilled hamburgers and hot dogs when you. told me that when I saw you in the morning. I like them so I didn't have to double down and Burgers and dogs for two nights and I come. They're very. They tasted very good. I was happy to see everybody. Not invited all that often, so I was very happy to go. Then wrote me the saddest text message the following more. Actually read it yes. Thing was that sad. I thought it was revealing not okay before I read it. You want me to read everything well. I don't know just the part about you know what I'm not good at. Oh. Yeah, this is everything was great. I don't know how to talk to small children. I feel badly about this. Five, thirty six in the morning is my grandchild and I. You know he's I don't really know what to say. Walkers down on the ground playing with some new presence playing with legos train set. Dad is sitting on an armchair, and there's just sort of cracking jokes at the expense walks outside. Yeah, that's what I do. From Elaine Povich who I assume is one of the Pope itches high attended by Zoom I saw a clip of you and will bond without knowing about it. I thought it was kind of Brusque and cut off abruptly I wondered why you both didn't get a bigger role. Now I know Elaine, see somebody else knew that to the University of Maryland Journalism Department did not practice journalism with Wilbon with me, so we're never doing. Something for that department. Yeah, so we're never doing anything again and we love Shirley. Povich and we love George Solomon, but you can't can't treat people that badly, and from Jim Flynn Cobra Connecticut Tony I'm catching up on old episodes. How did you video presentation George Solomon? Go. So. That's funny I found out today just looking at not before the today show. I was looking at Channel Four. News and it is apparently take your dog to work day. This is one of the stupidest ideas I've ever heard unless you're golf, course superintendent. So stupid to take your dog to work now take my dog to work because I'm working in my house on my dogs, living in a house and my dog is right now staring out the window. She had a very good day today. Seeing Nigel seen Michael, but no one can think this is a good idea. No one can take your dog to work. Day is a good idea can't be a good idea. Right stupid idea. From Brad Weiss. Who is our friend teacher of consequence? I too was once subjected to a mos- procedure and I. Wish you an equally speedy recovery. Mine was held at the aptly named Duke Mos-. micrographics surgery clinic never occurred to me that I might ask to avoid the waiting room as I got the lab results, which would have been a relief as I had my procedure at the tender age of forty something while the room was packed with a parade about. About Cocker's. Had I done so I might have allowed myself to note that the names of the rascals forming near perfect alphabetic sequence. That is the names Dino Eddie Felix Gene D E. F G as well as the names Brigade Cavalieri Cornish. Tonelli BCC d all begin with consecutive letters. No wonder you can't forget their ridiculous names. It's a built in the monarch. Where was I? Oh, yes, skin, cancer! Good Luck! I have another one from Randy Szymanski in done more Pennsylvania. Why am I reading these now because they they tickle me. I'm glad to hear your surgery went. Well does most Dan from microscope orange heads surgery by the way I am the associate athletic director at the University of Scranton. We are proud to call John Walsh alarm and I personally shocked that his support of our athletics teams didn't win that election that aside you may also be interested to know that the late Great Pete listen was the athletic director here from nineteen, fifty, three to nine, hundred, sixty eight, and you also coached football basketball and cross country here our. Our biggest athletics fundraiser is the Peter a Carlesimo Golf Tournament and Award Dinner, at which his son PJ PJ Carlesimo returns to present the award until epic stories. Each year we held the event at places like Sauk. Valley and Philadelphia Cricket Club where Michael has played many times in recent years. If you're ever passing through screen on your way to Binghamton or Camper, union, my mother grew up minutes from camp key. You'll note that's a story for another day. Let me know and we'll take you Michael to play Glenmore. National Golf Club a former WEB DOT COM tour. Stop where golf team place that's Randy Szymanski and done more, Pennsylvania. Another one. From Andrew Good, news for Mr, Tony and Binghamton, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, has announced it is leaving the Atlantic Sun Conference to join the America East conference although I. Don't know that Binghamton will be able to defeat njit. Yes, we can defeat them. Yes, we can. We can. Just so you know this should give you? The number of conference teams that allow all teams to participate in the conference tournament, and I want to get to something else before I get to the main course here, which is my complaint with Eddie Bauer? This game the twenty four game that I talked about the other day that somebody sent me where you you look at four digits on a license plate, and you add up to twenty four. I don't really understand how this game got any particular currency because following, follow me. The lowest amount you can have on four digits zero. The High Kosov Four. The highest amount you can have is four nines is thirty six. Check that for you so somewhere in between would be eighteen, which would seem to me logically to be a number that would be. Most. Apt to hit on a team, not twenty four because twenty four is is two thirds of the way up rights, two thirds of the way up twelve, twenty or thirty six, so I don't. Even I don't even know I. There is a twenty four. I've I've pay us to. I've counted to on twenty four hours, but I don't even understand the logic of the game. I don't know how it got to be twenty four. Have you ever heard of the game? Michael have up? Do you think it's just a play to a number? That's recognizable. You know twenty four hours a day or thinking about the TV, show, twenty, four versus eighteen. or You could try and go down the rabbit. Wow, not as to the likelihood that they play numbers in the sequence, are they? Are you getting more lows or more highs or try to balance it out where you might hit your eighteen more often right so since I'm simply O.. I, don't I don't take the logic of any of that. I don't really understand any of that, but it does seem to me that the middle of thirty six zero. The middle is eighteen. That would I think, but maybe not maybe mathematically that would not give you the best chance at all. Well, let's put it. Well I guess we could what you've already hit twenty four twice. Yeah was probably in one walk I probably had eighteen million times already because my let's try and check all right. I'll do that, so let me get to Eddie Bauer. Any Bauer makes the best t shirt in the world as far as I'm concerned I, Love Eddie. Bauer t shirts. The other day Eddie Bauer had the other day the other day. Memorial Day Eddie, Bauer History said. What kind of T are we talking? T SHIRT! No pockets hate pockets. Hate. Pockets won't have pockets on a t shirt he's. Shirts I'm searching through my wall to get the Eddie Bauer Card that I have your card carrying member. yeah, why do you have a random seven of hearts? That's the story of of dorna boast the magician who who had me rip the seven of hearts into little bitty pieces than an magically put it together in his own hand, so I carry that with me. I've told that story a thousand times. I have the Eddie Bauer. Adventure rewards card can have this card I've never used. It doesn't matter. I went online because you can only go online and Eddie Bauer. Because I bought stuff. They are sends me twenty emails a day. So, on the Moyal Day, they had a fifty percent off sale. Fifty percent off their T. shirts. T. shirts normally about. I don't know thirty five to forty dollars somewhere somewhere between thirty and forty I don't even know it doesn't matter. But I bought three. I bought three and the total price for everything at fifty percent off should have come to something like between fifty five and sixty dollars somewhere there. Trust my memory on this I'm trusting my. There is no special deal. If you buy three, get something extra no fifty percent off purchase fifty percent off, and they said at that time because of the corona virus things, maybe a little bit delayed. Okay, no problem, a little bit delayed. One of the t shirts has come only one. I bought three. Only one is come and I was built on American Express for twenty two dollars and sixty three cents. meaning. That the entire price is somewhere over sixty seven dollars. This is annoying to me. Because what I bought. It for was less money than that I not only haven't gotten everything, but the one thing I got was too much money. Right you following that I am, but you WanNa make sure that it's not being sent as two different transactions where you're might be, you might be paying tax and service fees onto different orders around Ab But I don't even have I have one shirt. So on the back of my Eddie, Bauer Card it says for more information visit, www dot, eddie bauer dot, com, no phone number. There's a phone number. I call they cut you off. They turn you. Call you press the right thing. Scream representative. They just blow you out. Nobody answers they say covid nineteen. Nobody's here. Leave US alone. They blow you out. Eddie Bauer Dot, com or Eddie Bauer Dot. Ca What does that California sure okay and When you or Canada maybe. When you write them. They say we don't accept email at this at this address, and they don't give you an alternate address. So what what? What is going on here, right? This is my point. What is going on here so I called American, express and I said I'm going to contest I've already paid the money I paid it in my bill, but now I'm contesting it because I think it's too much money, and all its if I only get one shirt, I know it's too much money. Right of. Are You following this Mike? Talking to myself here? I'm making sense my making sense on Bauer yes. T shirts I do but I even got the one with the worst color like the third one. Available to send immediately. Yeah, well, it wasn't immediate, though it's a month later, we're month from Memorial Day. I got it last week. Do you know so. I. Do I haven't complaint here. You do have a complaint, but I would like to see your confirmation email to see what exactly was the price of the t shirt and to see how much you paid for. I don't know any sort of handling shipping cost and you know might have been. You might have. Not been able to reach the free shipping. If say it was for one hundred dollars, get free standard. I've no idea okay so until I see that I don't know if you paid the right amount or not. What were the other colors? Does it you know a dark, grey and dark, blue and light blue, and I got the light blue and really wanted. Can I read one more thing? No one get out of here. This is from bells up winery. This is from Dave Spectrum Bells appointment finally happened my own David Aldridge moment last week I was out working in the vineyard all day, when finally got back, the woman to whom I'm related by marriage handed me a message that Tony beason had called to order some wine. My eyes immediately got wide and I said out loud I know that guy. He has a piano especially able. I started going into detail with. What that meant, but the blank look I was getting made it readily apparent that the origin story would take longer than I had at that moment, but anyways very here happy to hear from Tony for different reasons you see. We started our winery after moving to Oregon from Cincinnati, which you may remember is where Tony Lives as I've been chatting little the second. They hear about Cincinnati Past. The first question I get is not about graders. Ice Cream Skyline Chili it's Oh. Do you know Tony? I've had to say I didn't have any connection with them. Or so I thought so I called Tony back the next day. We had a lovely chat I was talking about. My family had come to be in Cincinnati in the first place. Namely the the company in Florida, my father worked for was acquired by Cincinnati Company and we relocated, and that's when things got interesting. It turns out. The Tony worked at the same Cincinnati Company and not only knew my dad will but work closely with him for years including. Including on a massive project in Japan that was the Bane of my dad's existence of course after this to call my dad, and he remembered Tony Hadley strangely though he was unaware of Tony's musical prowess, which is a shame, because my dad is a trombone player, and with my French Horn and Tony's piano. We could have been on the way to forming the TK. Philharmonic Anyway, thanks for being the medium for such a need connection. I really hope you're enjoying the wines.

You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. was sent to us by Angie Donald. is a long time listener for New Jersey. You can hear the echoes of this clocks favorite singer in this this is banned ruby roses, an indie pop band with a pop mentality indie rock band with a pop mentality. This is our song shipwrecked from our debut album some new paradise. I mean if you're listening to it and you don't hear Bruce Springsteen Elvis Costello. You've never heard Bruce springsteen and Elvis Costello right? Liz I mean that's. More Elvis than in in the attractions. You know the the the whole vibe oh. Yes, Oh, yes. So is Clark us and we are so happy to have her because there are two. Big Stories big stories in sports. That have to do. I should preface this by saying. There are only two stories in sports now one is the virus and the other is race. That's all there are. Everything comes back to them and I know this because I have to do this every single day. That's the way it is right now. Liz at the middle of both of these and has written extensively eloquently over the last week, or so on both of these, let us start with Nascar, and what was revealed to be by photos yesterday. An absolute news that may or may not I think may may coincidentally have ended up in the in the pits or the Barnes, whatever they call it of bubble wallace. But. It is a news the first thing I would ask you is what do you make of the immediate reaction and whether or not whether or not? It was over I'm not talking about overreaction now you know. What do you make of the immediate reaction of Steve Phelps the president of NASCAR and every single one of those drivers? They have absolutely nothing to apologize for or walk back. By. Their, heroes Yeah Yep particularly after seeing the image of the news I mean it had been described to me, and it was unmistakable that the FBI in announcing their was no hate crime in their press release announcing no hate crime, they use the term news four times in the headline of the FBI statement and the text of the FBI statement throughout the term noose was used. even in dismissing it. There's something. About seeing that image, it's not you know something you can read a couple different ways. It is jarring, and it is cutting its a stone cold news, and if you WanNa, tell me it's served another purpose that may be so their initial reaction I thought was tremendous particularly because. I covered USA gymnastics where the head of USA gymnastics got multiple reports of criminal behavior and put them in a file drawer for months for months. And only involved the FBI You know after multiple girls were molested by Larry. Nassar, so that is how you don't handle the allegation of a federal crime, hate crime, sexual abuse, whatever it may be, and you know given what NASCAR had gone through since it announced the confederate ban, the confederate flag display ban on the part of fans, June tenth given that they were going next to Talladega. Divorce? rough, you know. FLAG-WAVING Stop and their national tour in the heart of the deep South you knew this was not going to go over well, even though it was limited crowds when a crew member says, we have a new garage crew member for your only black driver. You go down and look at it and see what was shared with everyone else yesterday you. I I have nothing but admiration for the steps they took, which meant telling Bubba Wallace, the driver who was not in the garage, he never saw it then putting out a press release you condemn it as a heinous act and then the FBI is there the? The next morning and throughout NASCAR was transparent. They said what they could say when they were allowed to say it. As F.. B. I. worked, they weren't allowed to show this image, nor talk with any detail about what was on, and and even after the FBI concluded there was no hate. Crime Nascar said you know we're not done here because there was a noose. Noose in our garage whether it was directed at a single person or generically, why was it there A. B.? Why did people just like go? Buy It and you know we have a culture apparently where nobody sees a problem here, so there were a million reasons. NASCAR wanted to keep looking harder and they learned a bit more in their own internal investigation, but they. They haven't pinpointed who tied it which I totally understand why that's impossible to do unless someone comes forward or rat somebody out, and I can explain why that's harder to do than a lot of people think who watch too much TV don't understand Nascar and think that Oh, well, you just review the security footage which you don't really have but go ahead. Well it doesn't. It doesn't matter ultimately that it was not aimed at Wallace. That doesn't matter what matters here is that he's the one black driver, and just through coincidence It is in his in his areas, so his reaction is completely understandable. What I'm getting to is that in a matter of days NASCAR has sought to remake utterly its image in the United States at what might be at an economic cost to them. That is altogether possible and Steve. Phelps has done this. Been Courageous and every single driver and God knows Richard Petty I know the kids should petty. They'll call you the king for no reason at all, and they stood shoulder to shoulder with this driver again. I hope it wasn't aimed at him I. Don't believe it necessarily was. That's not the point. The point is the NASCAR. Drivers felt one of their own was being threatened, and they stood shoulder to shoulder, which is a lot. Unanimity, then you've seen in baseball, football or basketball on anything on anything NASCAR what you've covered for years and years and years. How do you feel about this? Yeah, so let me first. Say I, totally you. You spoke so beautifully there and so on point, and when you said the reaction, I thought you meant like with Nascar rushing to judgment because weekly, so that's all I've heard just on social media like from the total Kabbal of conspiracies who think it was staged and NASCAR has to apologize for calling it a news because it obviously was just a normal door poll and really by by now. You have no idea that the number. I don't look at that stuff. Okay, so to your point on the affirmative on the unity that response. Was All. You said in more so now. I've lost sight of the next question was what do I make of what the whole thing or you've covered this yet work? It has been cast in America as a regional southern. Forgive me, redneck culture. The actions of the sport and the drivers are anything but that yeah at the moment. And far greater in terms of unanimity than any other sport. Is this is this a sea change? was there all along? What do you think that no boy? This is so interesting It is really dramatic, and it is way ahead of other sports leagues, both in Word Symbol and deed so NASCAR I don't it deserves owns, and it's just a point of fact. It began in the south it. It builds on a southern culture of of. Soup up cars, and running them on dirt tracks, and through brilliant marketing, you know it became this Juggernaut, and then became a corporate juggernaut. It went through three generations of one family, and now it's being run by quite a bold and Kinda. Out Front president in Steve. So. One thing people may have missed for for probably twenty years at least fifteen years. NASCAR has tried to dissociate from the confederate flag. It has tried to get away from that heritage and has made clear. It doesn't want its fans using its brand as a backdrop for their displays of confederate flags, anything that could be perceived as as a hate so in like two thousand and two around their NASCAR. NASCAR are banned displays of the confederate flag on its car's driver. Uniform any merchandise. If you were vendor on its property, you couldn't sell anything with the confederate flag on it. That was done after nine, African Americans were slaughtered in the Charleston Church by Dylann roof in two thousand fifteen. That's when Nikki Haley took down the confederate flag from the South Carolina State Capitol at that point. NASCAR asked its fans. Please! Do not bring the confederate flag to our track. We don't want it. We don't want to see it. Please don't bring it so as you covered NASCAR over the years. You saw it less and less. It was not as communist sight. There's a core that is going to bring it and bring it proudly, and and the highest percentage of that core shows up at Talladega. Alabama at Darlington South Carolina. You know above all so the fact that a couple of days after Nascar took the ultimate step which they had considered for a long time, and and it was bubba calling for it that push them in this direction or or made them. Them realize this is the moment they had been discussing it. At what point do we tell fans what they can do? You know that's a step further you know. We don't want any part of it. We don't want you to bring it, but now we're GONNA. Say Fans. You can't bring this to our tracks. and you could say that was a moral decision. They want to be on the right. Right side of the issue. You could also say it's a business decision. We want to do everything we can to make our sport welcoming and comfortable for all make every family feel like you can bring your kids and a total craven corporate move. You could also say if we want to invite you know. David Aldridge Mike will bond you know influencers and the media. We want to invite the CEO of. Of Google and apple to show, what a great sport! We have why you want to invest in our brand why you want to put your logo next to our logo. Do we want to entertain you and you know I in a in a suite overlooking displays of the confederate flag? No, no, you don't want to do that, so what they did that was that no other league is done is said. What fans can and cannot do? This was not going to go over well. It was not going to go over well most of all at Talladega and that's where they were when this happened. So. It's a fascinating story. I think it's I. Think it's courageous by the driver's and courageous by the president. I just I want again. It does not matter that it was not aimed specifically at walls. That's not that's not the point. You can understand how bubba Wallace would hear about it and see it and go. Whoa, that was at me. Of course he would say that again whether it was was not. That would be in his DNA to say that so but. Thank God I. Don't read the Internet let me go to Novak Djokovic. The famous Anti Vaccine Novak, Djokovic who now finds himself with Corona virus? What kind of tournament did he run? What happened? What is this story? Yeah, yes, so tennis professional tennis has been shut down since early March. Nobody has been able to compete. Earn any money. Obviously, Novak doesn't need any money, but tennis has planned to to get back in business in mid August the thing the top players are pointing to. Is the next chance to win a slam so the US? Open supposedly will be held the first two weeks of September In New York under tight tight protocols, so you know commonsense tennis players want to shake off the Russ. Want to start competing and you can't really hit against a wall, but for so long so Novak. Who is from Serbia, organized his own little exhibition and invited fellow players to join him in this exhibition that was going to cover three Balkan countries Serbia Croatia and Bosnia Herzegovina like roughly a month long just three successive weekends you play these matches and it to to my horror, and the horror of anyone you know watching images or footage or cover looking at what was happening there in in in Serbia when the tournament opened. Zero. Effort to guard against the Corona, virus no mask wearing no distancing opening press conference there the players top three three of the top ten players in the world, seated side-by-side in front of a room full of reporters, no one wearing a mass they're. They're passing the microphone around then in the matches you know they're shaky cans draping their arms around one another then comes footage at the disco and Belgrade their slithering around. You know in a crowded dance floor. Floor without shirts I mean good for them having a good time, but this is the coronavirus. Nothing was followed You know one weekend Novak is taking bows for success. This thing is this is just so great. It has extensively some charitable purpose, and the players are happy playing. Forgot you know. Thousands of fans attend jammed into the stands. No, no requirement that they mask it all so you know midway through the tournament Grigore Dmitrov. Announces, He tests positive. he had not been feeling well during the tournament, so he has positive. At the moment, four players. including the world number one Novak Djokovic host architect of this tour have tested positive along with Novak's wife and two coaches and God knows how many of the thousands of fans who attended have tested positive, so they've canceled the tour. No back is taking well deserved criticism and He's taking it. He's he's getting well deserved criticism. His parents actually pushed back in blamed one of the other players for for bringing this virus to to their son's tournament on the basis of nothing so Novak's. I. Guess Standing Among Fellow players is not great and he's already kind of an outlier in many many ways as you say has a record for saying he doesn't really believe in a corona virus vaccine, and if one is developed, he won't take it and he was out front in criticizing the US efforts protocols for for their tournament and just extreme. Yeah I would just point this out that the worst person in tennis by Far Nick Curious you said that. Was Stupid. That guy can't stay on the court anywhere in the world because he's such a wildcard dope and he says Oh, the. Is. said it was really. Bad. He's the one who shared the video of the Disco Disco Ball. slithering shirtless partying he's he's only twenty five, and he is one of those guys. He is maybe the most talented talented athletes you'll ever see antennas and the most self-defeating I mean. He makes John McEnroe in his prime looks like a lamb, you know he is such a capable of such, brilliant and such utter utter self-destruction, but and he's only twenty five, so he tweets. Very self aware like. Don't come at me that I that I do stupid things. Look at this, you know He. He called it boneheaded even before anybody got the virus, and then he's like come on. This is ridiculous I mean he was smart enough to have no part of this tournament as wasn't a doll, as was teapot and a bunch of other pros.

The easiest question is where are we now? But the context of where are we now seems to me to be twofold one is. How does the current President Donald? Trump broaden his appeal, which seems to be at you know, add whatever number it is. It seems to be solid there, but no more and not enough. And how can he be in this position now? When the person he's running against Joe Biden is invisible like he hasn't said or done anything. That all so so that's the context. Where are we now? So I'll answer the second question I by. Whether by strategy or necessity I mean he's seventy seven year, old guy, and obviously by still. Kicking around the country as served on a Texas etc learned Has Largely been absent from the campaign trail. He gave a speech yesterday about healthcare. I mean He. He does stuff. But it's not a ton but what the effect of that is and again I. Don't know if it's necessity your strategy, but what it does. Is it China very bright light on Donald Trump. And Donald Trump does not benefit from having a very bright light shone on him because. He says and does. Lots of lots of things that you shouldn't do as a president whether it's you know. The coronavirus is GonNa fade away to George Floyd and protesters and You know these are just looters. Terrorists so by not being present. By now I don't think that he can do this the entire campaign. But he can do for a while I think when you say trump is numbers are basically steady. I I would disagree with that slightly in that. The last two days you've been state polling. Come out in swing. States Florida Arizona Ohio I, Alwa-. North Carolina Wisconsin Donald Trump is behind by eight to ten to twelve points in both polls them by the near times and by Fox News. it's by far his worst stretch of swing state polling that he's seen. You're right on that. He's never going to travel about thirty six thirty seven thirty eight percent approval. There's people going to be with them. No matter what but I would say he's in a worse place. that he has ever been before when it comes to getting re elected, there's no question about that. So how does he assuming you've gotta get to make it competitive into the mid to high forties? Because then it's within the margin of error. How does he broaden his appeal? What does he do? Well so there's what he could do what he will do. what he could do is stopped running a primary campaign in the general election. What he will do is continue to run a primary campaign in the general election. Because he's only got know, he only has the the one speed twenty. You're talking about a hundred five mile an hour festival Leon. Let's say let's got a ninety five mile an hour fastball, but you don't have any other pitches. It works for a while, but then you get to a point where. You get. Better, hitters in the pros and they can hit that because they know what's coming well. He only has the one speed. He doesn't have a change. Be Doesn't have A. he doesn't have a slur if he doesn't. He doesn't have anything anything but street old word Very read me I don't know if he signed any of the speech again to this group called turning point USA a conservative students grouping Phoenix on Wednesday, but it was. It was sort of like greatest hits of trump and that that's what he gives people now. He's like a stand up comedian. He's home business. Nigel can speak to. This could take off of their. Own His bits to the point where he. He's only getting those people who were at those rallies exactly what they want right to lock up and it's the China flew and it's you know he's giving them all that stuff. The problem is in doing that. He's turning off. Suburban women particularly, he's turning off older voters. He turned him up college. East wight voters, and without college educated white voters. Excuse me without those those groups. He has chance he. His base has shrunk from the twenty sixty election, and it wasn't barely big enough in that election. Remind people. He lost the popular vote by almost three Million Hillary Clinton. So, let let me get to to. Positions I would say for for Biden. There are two questions I have. Is. Why would he debate at all? I don't even know why he would appear on the same stage, with which at all and I really mean that and be the only thing it seems to me that can really hurt him is if he picks vice president that people don't want and he seems still boxed himself in by saying for sure he would pick a woman to be his running mate. Can you address both of those things? Yeah, I think the. Tradition is the answer to the first one. There's always been free presidential debates in the modern era since you know Probably Kennedy on there's been three general election debates between the. Candidates in one vice-presidents Bait now. You don't have to do that, you, can you? Can you know you can are out? So you know there would be some negative press, but again I you know I. Don't know how much that would hurt you I think it is evidence of where trump knows. He is despite him saying like Oh. We've got a lot of internal polls. Show me winning which I you know I. Don't think it's true, but It's evidence of where he is that he is now calling for Moore debate. He wants to beat by more. which if you remember a year ago, trump was the one thing I'm not sure. I'm going to participate in any of these debates I I may not do you know I may not do any of them, so the VP thing. Yes, you can. Can Get it wrong. John McCain got it wrong with Sarah Palin but I. Don't think and and you could ask your golfing partner. This I don't think Barack Obama thinks that he won the two thousand nine election because John McCain Sarah. Palin I, think John John McCain could've picked the greatest. BP candidate ever and still would not have beaten Barack Obama so. I think it tends to have less impact than we think. Even if you pick someone who's not seen as great I'm reminded George H W, Bush one with Dan. Quayle is easy. You know I I? Mean it's it's not decisive I. Don't think so I. I think bilateral will do everything he can to kind of. hide out for lack of a better word, because as long as the spotlight is on Donald Trump and says been shown over the last few months. The spotlight shines solely Donald Trump. People do not like what they see four, an I should say enough. People do not like what they see. So this is to me and I'm not a political strategist at at all, but I don't know how you run. When the other guy can say this two hundred thousand dead, people yup two hundred thousand dead. Were you. How do you run against that if I? I went I went through yesterday I went through all the things that trump is sad about the coronavirus going away. yeah, I mean. It's really stunning stuff you know. He said last Thursday didn't interview with Hannity and said it'll. It's fading away. It's already gone I. don't even like talk about it. in January twenty second he was asked about it and said it's in China, not worrying about it. We've got a total under control I mean. There's probably forty clips maybe more of him saying either it's not a big deal or we've got it under control, and that doesn't have that's with before you take into account all the clips of him saying we've had. We've passed when there was demonstrably false, and now saying I I've asked my administration the slowdown testing. Then his administration said he was kidding than he said he wasn't kidding I. Mean there's just so much there. on something that matters. A lot of the stuff with trump in the past you could save. A states were low. It's like. He said some things that trust. He's very the healthcare talk. This is take your dog to work day, so she's here, so you have to live with it. I'm just glad she likes to hear. I have to say I took those his barks of sent were. So, you know. He's made he's said and done a lot of things that are very questionable. Obviously, the thing that I think is different about the corona virus is there are dead people? This is not like hey. I don't agree with what he says in healthcare like I. Don't agree with what he says on Conservative, the conservative judges this is. There are people getting sick and dying and part of that is because this is someone who can't admit. He didn't get ready to start. And by the way kids can't do. The most basic thing that we know actually helps which is wear a mask when you were in public and you can't stay away. Some people as he is turn that into a stunningly to me and I think we will look back in at this. when books written about it and say, how could we have let this happen? Is Turns this into some sort of political flag. Or partisan flag that you wear that you know if you if you're. If you really love trump, don't wear a mask. I mean at this Phoenix thing. There's thousands of kids in this indoor thing in Arizona, which is you talked about on? Winston, this is not leaving his top spot in the country. Certainly one of the top three and no one has asked on its I. continue to say it has nothing to do with politics everything to do with public health. And yet that's where we are. So yes. I think his numbers combined the Corona Virus Response George Floyd response. We need to dominate the streets. You know these people are all looters and terrorists totally tone deaf, as it relates to what he has said in the past on race in the current situation in this country, those two things have combined. It's like in the perfect storm when those two storms combine off the coast, and you get much worse storm that that's what's happened to him now so hundred and thirty one days until the election so. Maybe he can pull it out I S. I remind everyone on the show anytime. I didn't think he was GonNa win and Twenty Six. So but I would say, he is a darker place electorally than he has ever been before, certainly in this race, and even in two thousand sixteen, so I will get you out of here on this, and it's not that I expect this to happen. But unlike Donald Trump. Who is a businessman? Not a politician. The overwhelming majority of people who are elected to the house, and the Senate, and gubernatorial races are career politicians, and they know how to count. It's a different way of counting. What is the likelihood that a group of Republicans get together and they say we're going down the drain with this guy. This is a no win for all of us. We've got to get him out of here. Is there any likelihood of that to you? is there is a person moody that conversations are happening. Sure. Could they do it? No. No because he's not leading. And what hold do they have on him? What what what what? What can McConnell go to for Donald Trump say hey, we need to out because you're gonNA. Cost US the Senate. Why would donald trump what what what? In, his life would convince you. He listened to that and how could Mitch McConnell make that happen I mean there's this whole twenty Fifth Amendment thing I just don't think down cabinet. And it is going to revolt against him and Mike Pence is gonNA. Revolt against him four months before the election I think that's a pipe dream. I think he is going to run, and if it is into re-election, and if the environment is numbers or anything similar to what they are now, he will not only lose, but Democrats will retake. Control the Senate and keep control the House. House Joe Biden. We'll have a unified Washington just like Barack Obama had from two thousand to twenty ten now. What happens beyond that? What is the post trump Republican party look like. Is there a post trump Republican party? Remember if he loses in November trump to run again and twenty twenty four grover, Cleveland, did it eighteen thousand and eighteen ninety two? So I mean it can happen. and I don't since Donald. Trump is going the way you know. I think we here's an entertainer. He's a provocateur or somebody who loves the spotlight. We talked about it on and off air a million times. That is not be profiled. Someone who says you know what I didn't win. Okay, the people want me. They didn't approve my policies I'm GonNa go. I'M GONNA. Go off and just live a private life. That's not he is I don't know that if he loses. He ever concedes like actually acknowledges he's lost. He Basically I. I think he'll say already. It was biased. He said that and he won in two thousand sixteen. He said three to five million people voted illegally so. I I don't know that you can have any confidence that trump admits he ever loses and I certainly don't think he will go away if he even if he does lose, but I think he is primed at this point to lose and not just lose but lose. To the extent that he will drag down some some of his With him, but as you said well, we're still a long way out. We're still in your own way out stuff changes. Stuff changes. Thank you, Chris. Thanks don't always good to hear from Chris. Cillizza boys and girls. We will take a break. We'll come back with jingle. We'll have some email I'm Tony Kornheiser? This is the Tony Kornheiser show.

While, we're young tramps like US baby. We were born to run. Thanks to Liz Clark in the Washington. Post things Chris Eliza CNN thanks to our sponsors as well simply safe and policy genius remember you can listen to us on apple podcast. spotify Google play radio DOT COM. If you get the show to I tunes, please leave us a review with all the beeping I like to think Liz was just driving around his neighbor to let everyone drives a tesla. There was a lot of beeping, wasn't there? Okay we have a lot of things about the numerology games and the license plates from Pat. Leith Rob Rogers Arkansas hearing Tony. Talk about his new license plate game over, and under one hundred I was reminded what a podcast was sound like if it were hosted by Rainman PSI now, wearing visors new thing for me at fifty five tour visors again. He pitches Wednesday from Dr Patrick Newman in Richmond Virginia your story with DC plates on Monday made me feel not so alone in my license plate. Plate numerology obsession in elementary school. We had a game. We called twenty four that Michael May remember which he doesn't in essence. Each card at four numbers, and you had to figure out how to combine the numbers using the basic four functions of Arithmetic to make twenty four I should have been the forest edge, elementary school champion only to be robbed on a technicality I yelled I got it when solving the winning card. If you think now at age thirty seven that I'm still bitter about that, result you. You better believe it. I still remember how that card was solved anyway to this day over twenty five years later I still try to solve twenty four on every license plate. Number I see a good played can make twenty four bonus points. If it is a complicated way there you go combining long held grudges numbers I again. It explains everything about my DC elementary school education that was trying to attributed to a TV show Pete in Saint Paul Minnesota. I really enjoyed the gambling segment in the last podcast. PODCAST, but I was a little confused if you hit one hundred. Is that a pusher win? I'll take under thirty for the next Red Honda. You come across. Put me down for fifty bucks from Jamie, Collie in San, Rafael California, and update about the odds of your license plate game from you San Rafael California based math correspondent I though it feels important to acknowledge that while unlikely you'd find the license plate some greater than one hundred where the first or third digit zero, it is not nearly as. As difficult as hitting a baseball. Everyone knows that's the hardest thing in the universe he writes. Put its galaxy, not the universe now for some odds with a bit of rounding, there's a fifty point five percent chance, and he played a some less than one hundred one percent chance of exactly one hundred forty eight point, five percent chance to some as greater than one hundred. That was my point all along that it's easier to go. Go high if the first or third digit zero. Then there was a ninety. Ninety nine point one percent chance the summers less than one hundred zero point, eighteen percent chance of exactly one hundred or zero point, seventy two chance of greater than one, hundred or seventy, two out of ten thousand. That's why when I found the Oh nine, ninety, two I just thought that was just tremendous. I'm assuming number combinations don't get printed due to being deemed inappropriate, but that may be getting too deep in the license plate weeds, even for you from Tom Swollen in Ann Arbor Michigan. Hope you're. You're doing well and staying healthy. During these crazy times just wanted to let you know I've been a huge fan over the years, and you've had a tremendous impact on my life I truly enjoyed listening to you on ESPN radio years ago and was sad when you signed offer the last time well, I got fire love, PTI, your books and your podcast you blend of knowledge in numerous second to none back in two thousand and three. My family and I stopped by to see you at the ESPN zone. Zone DC which the zone. Yeah, no longer in existence. We took a picture with you. My daughter Yelled Buja. You signed your book. I'm back from more cash. I gave you a Detroit red. Wings Golf Shirt and you gave me a bag of Mr B's potato chips the chips, but I still have the bag. It's a treasured memory again. I hope all is going well I wish you the best, and if you ever make it out to an arbor, you have an open invitation for round of Golf. Course University of Michigan Courses Very Nice from Chris, in Knoxville I chuckled listening to you, talking about the flushing of toilets at the raiders new. Stadium on Pto last week, the simultaneous flushing of enough toilets to serve sixty five thousand people might sound impressive to some, however as a facilities employee at the University of Tennessee. We do this every year before the start of the season to be sure, all of our pipes can handle that much water. My wife is also a university employee, so she comes down, and we flush toilets together, I can't think. Think of a more romantic date. Can you are? Stadium holds one hundred and two thousand people. A record attendance was over one hundred eleven thousand including staff against the gators in two thousand and four, but upgrades to premium seating a few years ago has us down to a mere hundred thousand folks. Thank you and all of your staff for doing the pot I. Enjoy it very much and just in case Nigel drops out on the call. Don't forget to thank the people at Bethesda bagels.

"Why are you shopping here?"

The Tony Kornheiser Show

1:00:03 hr | 11 months ago

"Why are you shopping here?"

"Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show. Tired and yet, very beautiful taste in women's clothing. My Mother's clothing was always quite nice. The terrible taste in men's vogue. He was one of those guys were straps with plants. There's one of those guys award like the same t shirt nine days in a row filthy disgusting. My father. How can this be? How can you? How can you wear this this as I would go down to his apartment and slam twenty on the table and say turn the air conditioning. was just. So. Hot. The Tony Kornheiser show is on now. This is why I have windows open in my house even when it's twenty degrees outside, just I don't like it when it's too hot though your house gets warmer every single year and faintly smells like old hallmark channel. Yeah and yeah. But I don't that's not my doing I'm running around trying to correct that I'm trying to be the anti-kremlin in this whole. Gazebo. God Michael is here six feet one inches apart properly social distance. I I guess I should start by saying that I did not watch not one minute. I. Did Not Watch one second of the debate I. Voted Last week by mail I assume it will be counted. I am not undecided I. Know what I'm going to do I didn't WanNa Watch it because. It does not bring out the best in us. It doesn't. So I did not watch a second of. Michael You did you Watch fifteen twenty minutes? No. I watched the first hour I wanted to see foot what it was like with the around the Horn Mute Button your frankly given that you PTI your anniversary Yom I sorta figured you have reality just sorta come out of nowhere throw the crinkled up piece of paper at the end of it so So yesterday was the anniversary we have now done nineteen full years on PTI, nineteen full years which is Remarkable on television to do the same show. Even if nobody's watching like nobody, it's still remarkable to do nineteen full years and I did. I was unaware of it if you would ask me. How many years have you done? I knew the amount of years. But if you ask me what was the anniversary date I actually thought it was in September. I thought we started about two weeks after nine eleven. We didn't. We obviously started in mid to late but. Doing the prep shows why don't even remember prep shows I, just thought we went on the air in other words. The official history of the is show I don't contribute to that because I don't. I, don't get the dates right? I don't remember anything about it. I remember saying to many people it wasn't going to last more than a couple of months I do remember the the target number for the show was in terms of ratings. If it gets, it'll be ahead. Yeah I do point three. was point three. The show that we replaced was the Roy firestone interview show that had been on probably for twenty years as well. and that was just you know it. Everybody got tired of that including Roy firestone I believe although Roy firestone and I are not close. So they told us if you had a point three you good 'cause that's what he got a point three. You get a point for your ahead. Then I added the line. If you got a point, five will carry around on chairs. Within the within a year, we were getting a point a to a one. So we were hit. And and I'm the most surprise will says, he's never surprised maybe he wasn't but I was the most surprised person on earth because I as I've said, many times, we had two years guaranteed and the third year at the option of ESPN. And I never I was just happy with two years guaranteed. I didn't quit my job at the post Mike didn't quit his job at the post we never thought it would work out. So it's all this many years and And it is. Now for me, it's actually a career. It's an unexpected. It's an unsought I'm very grateful for it, but it's actually twenty years. You'd say that's a full career. In the minds of most people. Not only am I not a newspaper Sportswriter I never was in the minds of most people I've been on TV, and that's what I've done is been on TV and maybe they know about the radio and maybe they know about this podcast but it's mostly television I got very nice messages yesterday very nice from among other people my friend Anthony Black who works for Delta. Airlines from Jimmy Crowley from Scott Sadler, who I played golf with from Pablo Tori from Luke Russet from Mike Rizzo and I got a phone call and a nice charming phone call from Scott Van Pelt. WE CHATTED FOR ABOUT FIFTEEN MINUTES So you know how long I going to do it? Well, as I said to somebody yesterday. To Bill Hoff famer when he wrote he, he was the first person to inform he works in public relations at. ESPN, he was the first person to inform me that it was nineteen years. I. Wrote How got I was going to retire today so I guess just retired tomorrow it'll make it easier. And he said, well, you can't retire nuts. But I mean I do I do think about it. I do think I'm old I'm seventy two years old I do think about Michael this is like. This has been going on essentially adult life. Yeah. Your entire. Mentioned how long it's been I went to college where the show had been on for enough years where it was you engine college in two thousand and four thousand force and we've been on, you're going down dormitories where people would come back. It was appointment viewing, and now you look at this your grandson read came to your house last week and went home and was in disbelief when we turned on PTI and he just looks like Grandpa Tony. Yeah see here. Yeah. No one you you look at this perfect storm where the style of your show you you you would never have considered yourself a TV person nor neither would Mike. But the way they're newspaper sports writers away that afternoon sports programming was evolving which you guys started the way that dvr was coming into its own, which was the the perfect device to capture that made late afternoon show for when you got home from work, and then really when when social media started. Taking off a decade into your show people were actually interested and wanting that smart dialogue I was reading some of the comments on the instagram yesterday and and people were just so grateful that you're not just another TMZ shouting show at each other or even when he do disagree and sometimes that's just for the show the disagreements but you're willing to engage in you're willing to to meet across difference. It's impossible not to to realize how important that is in this year. Yeah I you know. I'm I'm that's nice and I agree with all of that. It never gets tiresome. It's tiring once in a while, but it's never tiresome. I love doing it I love Wilpon. I love the fact that unlike other shows we'll bond can say something and I can literally roll my eyes roll, my head and go what are you talking about and that's good. You know we can do that to each other and he'll yell and scream I don't care about your statistics junk. Go, these are not statistics facts statistics. So that relationship is is good. There's not there's not an upper hand to that relationship. There are a lot of shows where there's an upper hand that that doesn't exist with us. We've been doing years you work together at the post winning when he was the intern twenty well, he was only intern for a year I mean he was hired the moment. Got There. Everybody knew he was really good. So I got there in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine, he was in the summer he was an intern in nineteen seventy-nine hired full time when he graduated in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty. So we worked you know twenty years together before we ever did this and I used to make fun of him when I was writing columns is to call Mike that toddler town wilpon and he always had a good spirit about all of that and we became pals and and now we have this incredibly long lasting career and. Then now, the only question is, when do we get out when do we get out but thank you to the people who've liked the show and? And who wrote and and said Nice things. I had one small thing to say Niger. You're involved in this are Powell Wendy Rieger I was. I was utterly unaware of this Wendy. Rieger had revealed a few days ago that she'd had open heart surgery. I think it was valve surgery, right? I don't know the details of it and she's going to go on television. She's going to go on television yesterday to talk about it and I started to watch but I stopped I, stopped watching because it wasn't her it was during talking about when you Rieger and I knew I had to take the dog out and I didn't have a lot of time. About it but I guess she's I guess she's well when I found out about it and I was utterly unaware I left a message on her phone and I did not I didn't expect her to either get it or you know respond to it and she has not responded to it. But one of the things I said was I bet you were the prettiest girl in the or that day and I did say that. You talked to her or you texted her Nigel Yeah texting back and forth I would. Say Hey I go through you do all right recovering she said thank you, Tony. Left great message on my phone. Love. Love you guys. So and she's she's out in her palatial spot in Rapahannock rapahannock rabbit Hammock rapahannock county. and. You know she's out there where her furniture's perfect. My God I mean she sits in the furniture. You just say, well, that was that's so well decorated I. Look at my own house. I just shudder at how often. and. How lived in it looks and like I know that like this is ready to move out is to reactions of people have when they see me one lately as if they know me they. Oh, my God, you're thin. Are you ill you dying and the second? Is You live like this? This, it's changed. You live where now it's you live like this. He lives like this I'm. I'm I've provided enough money for my children. I'd really like to live nicer. I'd like to live in something that looks a little bit nicer. MEMBER HEX I know yeah. Remember the Great Story Heck's we go there in the evening one day in the salesperson those people who don't know this. Let me just set this up hex was a prominent department store in Washington C. was a prominent. It was on the level locally of you know the local bloomingdales or macy's or something like that. It was not on the level of a Nordstrom's. A. Saks or anything like that. It's departments departments. Are you bring your getting every everything there from housewares to suits and I went there for clothing or you're going there for close? Say you get the you get the leaflets in the mail and you come home from work Michael we're going to go get you a shirt. Yeah. We're in the lower level. This is right by Houlihan's Brian. We're we're the little shirts and the salesperson comes up to you Tony Kornheiser. Why are you shopping here? You can't be this can't be Golf Ball it's a pinnacle you're not using a pinnacle. Kid Stole my ball can sixteen and a half thirty, four, thirty five. So why are you shopping here? Let's take a break. We'll come back with Jason Lockenfora and will force him to talk about last night's Thursday night game. I have not mentioned I will just mention this briefly a critical game in the world series. Tonight this critical of Charlie Morton wins this game Tampa is going to win because they've got more starting pitching that the only starting pitching that the dodgers have. Or bueller and Kershaw, they have to win four as you've seen with gone selene and may it doesn't work? It doesn't work. So they've got this is the critical game tonight. The dodgers have to be Charlie Morton and Charlie Morton his unhittable in the postseason he's like the third best postseason pitcher in office no to what the fourth or fifth didn't get. To lift. All right. So yeah. Jason Lockenfora when we return I'm Tony Kornheiser. This is the Tony Kornheiser show. This is the Indochino Ed. And it says finding clothes that that you just right can be incredibly challenging. I don't have to tell you this I've. I've talked about my clothing lately it doesn't fit. It just doesn't fit nothing. I have fits anymore if I put on my pants and I don't put on a belt and cinch it to like death level everything falls off. So Nigel, you can explain what it's like to get a made to order suit from Indochino. Yes. Fits me like a glove. It's fantastic I will bring over the yardstick. And a piece of rope to measure later today. So we can get your very own tailored suit Mr, Tony that's how I did it. You can actually go to a Taylor if you want, but it will fit you. So perfectly, I mean and you're gonNA look great you're GonNa feel great and you can design the suit anyway you want the lapels, get a Monogram, the interior jackets whatever you want.

This is sent to us by Kris Van Valkenburgh who writes what's the difference between a trampoline a Banjo you take your shoes off to jump on a trampoline. My friend Brennan Shafer Been Honing his claw hammer technique in his put out several albums. He has emailed you to get permission plays music on the PODCAST I? Think you guys are really liking. This is called Louisville Burglar. This is playing in Jason Lockenfora Banjos Great. It's the most distinctive sounding instruments just absolutely great Jason joins us now I'll just start with this because it's local for you and I know on your radio show you probably had to talk about this that Dez Bryant is actually going to join the Baltimore Ravens is that is that a real fact that this point it it's trending in that direction as we speak right now it's not official, but he's back in town they're giving him another look see. and remember they worked them out Geez tone probably to. Go. Yeah. Tees and. and. At that point you know. It wasn't no one was was blown away He looked like a guy who could still play in the league but how much of a difference maker right and we drafted a couple of receivers Boykin going into his second year we're going to keep him starting for now and you know what? Stay in touch and see where things go. Well, they badly need another. Element in the passing game besides mark. Andrews their tight in in Hollywood brown the there one receiver really can get downfield And I don't I don't think that this does move if they do it. precludes them from doing something else at the wide receiver position they're exploring a bunch of different trade options but the thing about the expanded practice squads is now it just gives you a lot of flexibility. You can stash a veteran there you can work them out and practice with them. For two or three, four weeks whatever it takes, and then you know at a certain point, you feel like he's comfortable with you know parts of your playbook. Are you think he's better than what you have in these packages are those formations. Then you can kinda you know, start bleeding them into your offense and and see where he fits at this stage of his career. I. Think he's more of A. A tight end type than he is really a guy who's going to win twenty, thirty, forty yards downfield I. Don't think he's GonNa hit guys with double. Moose but he can make contested catches. He could be an interesting target for Lamar in the red zone he could probably still high point the ball he knows how to box out he knows how to use. He can win hand fights. He's always been a strong physical guy, and one thing he's always liked to do is get down and dirty blocking. Well, these guys run the ball a lot and they expect a lot out of their receivers blocking for the running backs in their quarterback. So I you know is he going to be a game? Changer I don't think. So the other thing he provides this team is incredibly young besides Mark Andrews, pretty much. The entire offense is on their first contract they're all twenty, three, twenty, four, twenty, five years old Willie snead is like twenty seven. He's the elder statesmen I like Willie snead a lot. He doesn't have an NFL resume. That's GonNa Command. I think part of this move is getting somebody in there with a different energy with a different set of experiences at a different point in his career and chains that that that vibe up a little bit to bring another sort of dog into that group who's done some stuff in this league 'cause the Guy Ingram and it looks like he's being phased out in the run game. I will say this that for people who want small numbers on this Baltimore with the explosive offense that they have, they have seven touchdowns from the tight end position. They have only two in six games only two from wide receiver. They also worked out Antonio. Brown. Not officially but Lamar Jackson worked with Antonio Brown and his cousin Hollywood Brown don't tell me. You'RE GONNA look at him to. I if they make the move official I don't I. Don't know why they would. You know really spend any more energy on Antonio Brown bringing both those guys in with really sort of shock the system and trump yeah. I would be that would be a shocker to me but like. Do I think they asked about Adam stealing when they inquired quite absa bleep and Lutely do I think they'll sniff around on Golden Tate on Marvin Jones maybe Bouchard Perriman with the jets who isn't a big name but is a true burner who they drafted in the first round twenty fifteen. It didn't work out here but he looked good in Cleveland for a minute. He looked very good in Tampa Yeah. I know that they are being very proactive and seeing what else they could do. At that position. Let. Me Get to a couple of things that happened last week that surprised me just by the margins, Arizona. Kill. Dallas ran two, hundred, sixty yards on them. Tampa Bay killed Green Bay ran all over them I. mean this is to me. This was very those games were very surprising. Should I be surprised? I think the nature by which Green Bay lost and and the quarterback really I mean they got the early lead, which is what they're all about and Aaron Rodgers literally handed it back in two possession sequence that did that's we passes. That changed the tenor of the game and that allowed the bucks to settle into their offense and due to the packers what everybody wants to do the packers team seem to? Not Get there two games slow or through the scoreboard or through mismanagement you you run on them with any volume you can expose that defense i. mean it's there for the taking. If you WANNA, take it. If you WanNa go that route now when they're up fourteen nothing at the end of the first quarter, it's very easy to talk yourself out of it but. not a very good defense the pass rush which looked amazing last. September and October you know and it's it's dairy Smith impressment. Their productions way down. The overall pressures are down and they still can't stop the run and that's why I've always kind of looked at them with a little bit of a jaundiced eye because if they don't win the turnover battle and if they are trailing at half halftime I don't think they're gonNA come back with a whole lot of people the other Games really surprised me off thousands. The defense does nothing except occasionally. Get. Some saks like it's it's that's really all they seem to want to do you know. Mean all the Smith. My I don't know might mess around lead the league in sacks it's really not gonNA matter. How many of the SAX affected Games led to wins? It's kind of like what they on offense to hold lot of passing yards largely hollow because a lot of it was acquired after the game was in doubt and When they really need to play in the fourth quarter and close games, it's generally not there. Yeah. This leads me to something interesting the Philadelphia Eagles in their last two games. One against a good team didn't win were in a position to tie against Baltimore and last night there down a lot twenty, one ten, I think they're down or something like that and they win the game question wins looks terrible for three periods every single game and I know Wilbon hates him just thinks he's stinks to high heaven but the last two games in the fourth quarter Carson Wentz has been money. What do we make of that? I. Carson Wentz was really a one man army against the Ravens he could. They could not protect them and all you got hit sixteen times He got sacked the time they were starting. An offensive line that consisted you know, Kelsey and four guys who collectively I think have been eight NFL Games And he kept. Bombs a wet like he would find a match up he liked and they started going after Marcus Peters and he was taking an incredible amount of abuse to try to pick up chunk yardage and it kept working He makes huge plays with his legs. is this decision making still a little off? Yeah and and as part of it, the offensive line and a lack of protection. Yeah and there's a part of it him trying to do too much too often. Yes absolutely. But that's his football team they're going to run away with that division they have their by. They're coming. They're they're going to be as healthy as they've been in a long time erz still won't be back Sanders probably still won't be back but Jason Peters will and Dallas Qatar will, and that last night was sort of a preseason for a lot of these guys who have been hurt most of the year like the Sean Jackson hurt again. But they will have more options at the receiver position and some of the guys they have there are developing and Howie Roseman is maybe the most aggressive. GM in the NFL and he's going to trade for a linebacker or do something else to help that football team before the trade deadline. And I think that team finishes five hundred or above, and I don't think anybody else in that department. When's more than five games? that. Okay. Good good to know that by the way. The World Series Ratings were terrible the NBA playoff ratings terrible. The NHL player ratings were terrible. How have the NFL ratings been so far? The last Sunday windows have been pretty strong. You know even compared to recent years now across the board. I think things are a little down but everything's down and there've been some interesting studies just about overall sports consumption and where eyeballs are going and turning to because of the pandemic because of you know election that. Seems in. Feels like none other in recent history of this country Because, people are scrambling to figure out you know how can I work from home and how can I navigate my kids through school and some virtual and some are so I think if you view it through the prism of where we are right now and how different twenty twenty s many thing we've ever seen before. NFL is doing incredibly well, especially compared to other sports and it's still winning the night on Thursday night and Sunday night in many cases by wide margins is where it was in two thousand fifteen. No. But I don't know if we're ever going back there just because of how much the landscape has changed even just with technology between now and then and how many more people stream now and how many people are just consuming in different ways. I'd let me get to. A game this week that there's a fabulously interesting small statistic. Pittsburgh. Tennessee will play since the merger. This will be the sixth time that teams with records of five or better or playing against each other in the previous five games or in other words one, hundred percent time. The winner of that game went to the Super Bowl went to the super bowl when you look at Pittsburgh in Tennessee, do you see that? I mean I I don't think it's out of the question for those leads to represent the AFC City got to Baltimore. Yep Yep no doubt. But the titans now were were like over calendar year. With Ryan Tannehill at the helm, it is a robust big boy offense the running back picks up an extra fifty yards per game just by having tentacles presence there because you have to respect the downfield past game, you have to respect play action in a big way you have to worry about Aj Brown and these guys beating you for double moves and him putting on a dime. They they can score points and they can do it a lot of ways and it's not just you know ground and pound you although that that is you know ideally what Mike Gravel would like to do but I love the offense I'm still not sold on the defense but. There aren't too many teams that I that you know you feel like are truly balanced right now. The steelers might be as balanced as anybody. It looks like, David, Decastro they're all world guard is going to be back for this one and and he hasn't really played much football this year I'm interested to see that offensive line. They have got a little long in the tooth and some spots there and how that holds up but bet is looked very good. They need a secondary receiver to step up besides Klay pulled Juju Smith Schuster been a passenger Washington seems to catch a ball. You know every two or three weeks, but but that's really it. You see them show up at once blast play and then he hasn't no one else has really integrated regularly into the passing game and their defense they they lost you know. Their central nervous system, their Middle Linebacker Devin Bush. that. Tornadoes Yell you know next man up okay. This guy spleen I don't think he's possibly be close to the athlete. That Devon push was and the titans don't have their left tackle Lewan for the rest of the year start to affect them as the sample size grows. This'll be an old school game. You know they are to bare knuckle teams, I lean to? Pittsburgh. because. I do think there are a little more balanced and I have some issues with the titans defense but these teams are both legitimate and if either one. Messed around one a few games in January and got the Tampa I wouldn't be shocked. Okay, that's good. Jason Plug you plug your radio show as we always want you to do. Thank you.

He's fourteen thirteen in one. But I do have from Jim Flynn in Colebrook Connecticut this particular email Tony I have diagnosed Jeff Ma and he has what I found to be. TGI or temporary jets insanity. When he says quote I see value in the jets. If he does that again, I suggest you organize an intervention, your reaction to that just off the top. No jets with week Unfortunately. The that they don't seem to be very good. No. No, they aren't very good. That's they're the worst team in the league statistically and visually the worst. This this happened right and when this happened you, you will end up seeing value on the death I probably going to wait until. darnold comes back has flacco does not seem to be much more than a corpse so I'm probably staying away from them. Until they get darnold back but I think when Donald gets back there'll be some value on them actually. You liked Arnold obviously more than I. Do I think he's terrible I. Mean I, just think he's terrible. Will where do we stand on Wednesday? It's it's interesting. You would bring that up because we just had Jason Lockenfora on and we talked about wentz whence is terrible for three quarters. But in the fourth quarter, certainly of the last two games wins has been superman. So it's hard for me to be dismissive of wins. How that you? Know I I I you know the. Couple, of weeks ago, we talked you APP win debate. When do they pull the plug on winter when she and? My father said guys still have a ton of talent. I don't know what's going on like you said in the first three quarters of the game but certainly. That lasts throat of Boston Scott and the catch live. Insane. Yes he's five foot six. He's five six that you don't usually see that. All right. What kind of games do for us. We're going to take we're. GonNa. Fix game this week we're GONNA take, Dallas plus the one against Washington? Obviously, this is a pretty big reaction to what people saw on Monday night where. You know. Dolphin do not look like he had it the the cowboys not look like they had it and and they you know got blown out by Arizona. But. This opened dollars favored by three and his moved to Dallas. Now getting one I just think it's too many points I mean I don't know i Washington should be a favourite against Dallas in in any situation and I think dolphin will end up being fine I think people have the thought last last going into last week that he'd be fine and and I didn't really see that much to deter me I mean Zeke put the ball on the ground twice and in. Dallas. With defense was not great and Murray made a bunch of plays but I like Dallas Whistle one here. Okay. What else? I take the lions plus the two I. Think if you liked the lions maybe watched the game because it could go up but I liked Al Detroit plus the two against Atlanta. obviously Atlanta had a great game last week surprised everyone beating the vikings playing really well but Detroit has been a team they've walked to you know to good teams and they lost the to a Chicago team who's obviously than people think. But again, they had one and and they won their other two games against bad teams. So expect against the bad team and Lennon, they're gonNA win this game. You one with Detroit last week or the week before been on Detroit before one why? Jacksonville they dominate in that game and so yeah, it's definitely a team I'm looking to back right now. Okay next I'm GONNA take the Browns minus the three against Cincinnati Again, just like the testament to dislike makes too short. The bengals not being a very good team. and You know struggling bit offensively obviously people like for the only question here is, is Mayfield and his health. there are some concerns there but I I think this line to short hard to pass up taking Cleveland here. So yesterday on. We did a happy anniversary to a college game in which Mayfield mahomes played against each other and the offense was insane set records all over the place most combined yards by two teams most combined yards by two quarterbacks, Mahomes to it eighty eight times and gained seven, hundred, thirty, four yards, and then rushed for eighty five yards. It's like the greatest performance of all time at that point Mayfield was far better known. Mayfield had gone to Texas tech and left and had actually if I had the research right had hosted mahomes in his official visit to Texas Tech. I don't know that you even know this because it's outside of the bet, the process thing. But your sense of of how far mahomes has come and what you see mahomes when you watch him, what do you think? mean his skill set is insane like we've never seen a quarterback that's been able to make throw that he's been able to make and. You know I think. After his first year as started, there was just incredible. You know talk about him. I think the the interesting thing is we've had all these other quarterbacks coming into the league that have. That sort of athleticism but his accuracy and ability to buy time on plays and then make the throws. He makes I think he's the best quarterback in the league I would take him I would take him over Russell, which is which right now is probably the only the only person. That's close. Okay. What other games? New England minus one and a half over San Francisco this one's weird. New England opened. Over a field goal favorite, it's got all the way down to one and a half although New England looks like they're gonNa get a bunch of players back this week. some of the offensive linemen and some of the defensive players New England with terrible last week and yeah hopefully, there are many reasons for that like practice not not practicing. Practice Clare's San Francisco going to last week I mean last week you said they stumped and they but they beat the rams. Yeah, they played well against the rams, but they really just held on and that second half right the first half they kind of surprise them came out did a lot of you know they did a lot of sort of direction and tried to get to the edges with. tvos Samuel and get the ball to kill and so. I think in this game where they've got to travel all the way east and and you have a New England team that that you know like in this in this is sort of the ultimate. Fellow check era game versus Brady are game like in the. Radio, this would be shirt for sure be a game. The Patriots would dominate and bounce back. So without Brady and just spell checker they going to be able to do that to keep their pattern going. Okay, and what else you got. Two more I'm GonNa Take Jacksonville plus the seven and a half against. The chargers obviously Herbert's been great so far this year and and people have. High expectations. But he's still a rookie quarterback and and some announces is a fair amount of points for a team that doesn't seem. Ever be able to you know blow a team out or even keep their victory the team, the chargers because easily be what four and one right now but there one in four. and so giving seven and a half points to Jacksonville team, which is great. We talked about their hated them last week you thought they were slop. They, they are they. The point spreads is the great equalizer in seven and a half points is just too many points for the charges to be giving. Okay. What else and then finally we're just GONNA take the seahawks minus the three and a half against Arizona. Even, though Arizona had a great game against the cowboys. They actually did it all kind of on big plays. There's their success rate, which is something that people look at like the ability to basically convert third downs and have have play success. was very low and it was really just a big plays turnovers that made them dominate that game and I think it gets the Seattle, team? That has. The rest is is has value in Arizona Zoff a short week. I think this is this plays very well into Seattle hands to to win this game comfortably. died. So if people tune in Tibet the process, they can hear about this and college games as well or just Pro Games easily college and pro. I don't think they call it this week. 'cause we had a guest, but we do both typically. I was able yesterday to attack Wilpon on this thing to big ten and all of the moral superiority of the big ten about how they're going to protect all their students and now with the biggest outbreak of corona virus in the entire country, they're just GonNa dial in for the dollars and start their season again I knew you'd have been proud of that. Role curbs on only gonNA. Be Around for what November third the ones that wants to November thirteenth never we'll get to play right. Right. It's going to disappear. Thank. You Jeff. Jeff. Boys and girls. And again, the name of the podcast that he and Rufus p his bet the process I, have a little extra time I wanted to. Talk. About something that was in the paper today in the paper for me is the Washington. Post. The capital weather gang they usually pretty good right. Mike. Good. So Jason Salmonella wrote a piece in which he asked one, two, three, four, five, six, seven weather predictors. Go Pass Kip but jazz diplomat list seven people meteorologist I. Guess they're meteorologists what the outlook for snow would be in Washington now last year we had virtually no snow. We had less than an inch of accumulating snow and conversational snow you know. Yeah. So so great because it it really crushed Chuck Berry nothing that's no angels really check bell and crushed. Melissa. Malays can take your kids out in the snow. And all of that and made me happy. Because I don't like Snow I. Don't like to walk the dog in snow and fall and break a rib which has happened to me I don't like. It's personal. Yeah. I. Don't really like snow conversational attractive hallmark chance to Zibo. Snow is fine but shovel snow. No good. So, there's a guy named Joe Girardi who predicted ten inches, ten inches of snow, which I can live with Todd Crawford of the weather company which is owned by IBM predicted seven inches. This is all more than ten times what we got last year but not tariffs nothing though over the course of a three or four months periods, Cohen of atmospheric and environmental research predicted nine inches, Paul Dorian of perspective weather perspective whether this is scary, he predicted twenty point five inches any wrap around. Alberta Clippers they went point five inches saying many signs point to colder than normal conditions this winter across the northern us including the mid Atlantic region and the virtually snowless winter of last year is quite likely not going to repeat itself. Paul passed a lock from accuweather said, ten inches ten inches. I could probably live with ten mat rogers of the commodity weather group said ten inches well, and Dave tollerance of W. X. Risk. I don't know what that means. He predicted twenty two inches. Says it's a mistake for forecaster to solely rely on La Nina in their outlooks and that other factors support a snowy forecast. Notably, he says warm ocean temperatures offshore in the Pacific northwest are quote dramatically different from anything I have seen over the last twenty years on quote if these warm weather warm waters persist. Tolerance expects a zone of high pressure to build over the western united. States which would cause the jet stream to dive south and east quote. This would favor below normal temperatures and a stormy weather pattern but with the La Nina, most of those storms still stay north of the mid Atlantic. Well, that's not what he's saying. He's saying it's GonNa I'm just saying what the experts will these guys are experts. So so Nigel, feel about this I mean everybody's predicting substantive snow though only two people are predicting crazy snow. Yeah. The guys Bronx. was going to be twenty two inches. I think may do that just to say. Hey, look at me. It's going to be a catastrophe this winter and the other I mean ten inches it makes me angry unlike you Conversational snow I wanted likely falling outside my window maybe gathering on the lawn and that's it don't on the road so. I don't want to come not allowed to shovel it middle caught little twelve years you on swear snow sweeps. What am I think I think with everything we've got to see what what the the model show for Kip and would sort of drawing close maybe maybe get him on the next. Month or so to get his accurate prediction for us but no I see in my crystal two inches or less that's what I'm predicting. Predictions of ten inches over the course of the entire Winston onto these are nothing. No. I want someone to say we're getting a blizzard. We're getting it here and now. Last week here for you for the boys, I would have gone I want one snow at least I can roll the hammer up into a little snowball and have his brother, push him around snowballs at them. But nothing that's GonNa actually nothing that's GONNA turn parking into on my street into more of a mess than what had already is are you going to come here and shovel me out? Well, I'm already here for set times a week. So yes, I, have a feeling I will that would be great all ice for you that would be early and often yeah be how We're good. So we will take a break and we will comeback with email and jingle. When we return I am Tony Kornheiser. You're listening to the Tony. Kornheiser. Show. Comes Tony's mailbag gut serene male fact.

Let me get to some email here from will Shinsegi in Silver Spring Maryland I'm sure you've heard the famous Jackie Green joke about Sinatra. Remember we mentioned Jackie Green a couple of shows, but maybe some of your listeners haven't shaky used to tell this joke Frank Sinatra saved my life five guys were beating me up and I heard frank say that's enough. CECCHI said it was a two story and there were five guys Roland. Denny writes in I was working silver, Spring area Monday morning, and I noticed low flying helicopters. I was also curious what they were doing flying so low repeatedly do you think they could have been looking for the Naked Guy Walking. Along drug for you've got to be with his show a long time number way back from Gary Tuchman failure or Muck, and Fowler Maumee Ohio, your recent references to your at the turn payday bar brought to mind my father's forty year ritual of always sliding zag nut bar. In my golf bag whenever it was my honor and privilege to first caddy, then play golf with him. Until his passing I don't mind telling you that your simple references brought back an avalanche of memories of Golf, played and Zach nut bars shared at the turn with my hero while I also love payday bars the question remains what is the best non chocolate candy bar easy after forgetting to put a fresh bar in your bag for your first round of the year it's the one you find in your bag unopened from the previous year from me it will always be. Zag. Nut. From my dad from any, I played golf last Friday had to pay day bar the turn instead of my usual hot dog I was hitting the ball well on the front and continued to play well, enough to have my best round at twenty twenty payday bars will now be a staple at the turn and hot dogs will have to wait for fenway barbecues. I'm fifty eight years old when I turned fifty, there are parts of my body that I never paid attention to previously my eyebrows nose here here now growing like wildfire and require constant grooming about two. Years ago my feet went from size nine and a half to an eleven wide finding fashionable shoes that fit and don't make me look like an old man. With Velcro, straps uses as a challenge I heard about the great deal for the bass pro boaters on your show and they had eleven wides I ordered a pair I couldn't be happier until you sales guys contact the Hershey Company and G H.

From Al, Deluca in Griffin a few years ago I was playing golf with the customer in Evansville Indiana. It's a nice course but an old one, the lots of parallel hit my drive to the right one hole into the light rough as we were approaching the whole, the group playing the next all was departing from the general area of my ball. We could not find my ball needless to say we assumed they could not find their ball hit my bull two holes. Later we're on green getting ready to PUTT I've been down to mark my ball here thought I look up my customers on the ground. His head is bleeding and a ball is rolling to my feet. I pick up the ball and go to aid my customer. We stopped the bleeding we're headed for the hospital. When I look at the ball, it was my bowl. So not only did they hit my ball instead of theirs they proceeded to hit an errand shot with my ball and did not yet four to warn us to the uncoming shot incoming shot and hit my customer in the head with my ball. My customer was fine with a couple of stitches and he continued to buy from me. So all good you cannot make this stuff up. Ryan from Mercer Pennsylvania.

"The Squirrel Dilemma"

The Tony Kornheiser Show

"The Squirrel Dilemma"

"Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show. No I understand. How would kill what you write again? jogs my memory into something. Interesting I went to the flutie game when Doug flutie threw that Girard Falen in the end zone, one of the most famous plays in the history of college football. I was down in Miami visiting my dad and I wrote a column that day and George called me up. The next says what are you writing and I said well my writing I just wrote. He said that play was enormous. You're writing again and I had to write again and George was hundred ten life. This is General George Washington and you're listening to Tony Kornheiser. I don't usually do this and I'm doing it now and I hadn't even thought of doing it. That show we did on. Monday was a journalism class that was one of those masterclasses in journalism, in which you were able to hear from editor columnist and a reporter as to how they go about doing their jobs on a specific story I was really proud of that. I don't know if people stuck with it, because not only is it a local story in the Washington DC area mainly although it has national import, but. But it was a very specific journalism story, and it's possible that people didn't enjoy that, but as Nigel knows and Michael knows I enjoyed it and I thought it was very good and I'm very appreciative of their help. On the whole thing Michael is here on the other end of Uncle Denny's table and I'm going to open the show with a couple of things. I'm going to start with the sort of odd juxtaposition. Of the optimism over sports and the return of sports and the pessimism over the vast spread and uncontrolled spread of the corona virus, the NBA conducted like three hundred and sixty tests in the last week and got no positives of their players in a bubble. I believe the NHL conducted three times that many tests and to positives of their players in a bubble baseball to my surprise has had fewer positive tests, and I thought because they're not in a bubble. Baseball's going to start tomorrow. They're going to start, don't they're gonNA finish. Don't know if they're gonNA. Go straight through, but they're gonNA. Start the NBA in the NHL. They're gonNA start one in Canada and one in the United States and at the same time in the United States where there is absolutely no coherent national policy to combat the corona virus, none zero. It is being run in some cases by county executives. Governors mayors county executives block wardens for all I know in certain neighborhoods because there's no coherent policy. And the cases go up and up and up, and it's not of course. The cases are GONNA. Go Up, of course they are. They're being misreported originally as as as not corona virus, and they work on that. That's not the point. The point is that the hospitalizations and the deaths are going up, and that is directly attributable to the reopening of the country and the and the relaxation sation of strict rules, which is not happening in every. Every country, but it's happening this country because there's no coherent policy whatsoever. People are happy about sports. They're happy, anecdotally the Washington Post. The newspaper I worked for for thirty years. Put out a full sports section, standalone yesterday and a full sports section standalone today not tucked in the back of the style section. They used to have a Sunday section, but now they've got it each day. Because people want to have sports and sports is good. I spent my life doing it. It's good. But at the same time, the thing that we are most afraid of gets worse, which leads me to believe that the NBA should be running the country. You know what are they doing? They're testing massively. They're testing daily. We have the capability of doing I'm not gonna go crazy here, but all the things that we have been told for months and months and months are not true. Dr, testing capability if it's true that we have it then. Why aren't we testing as much as we should? And if you say well, the NBA has rich people and they can afford to do this privately. The government should be able to afford to do this and do it publicly, and and just let people know what they have. So the NBA is ready to go and they're gonNA go again. I don't know if they're gonNA. Go straight through, but they're going to go. And people are happy about sports and I'm happy about sports and at the same time. Governments, local governments are being forced to face locking down again. Maybe that's the best thing that can happen I understand. It's terrible for the economy, but death is even worse for the economy of any thoughts on this I'm just rambling. No, said about it. No I think there's two two ways to look sports. One is the very optimistic or just three. Which is where you're going to continue to see. We may have pro football that raising. Yeah, that's hard to hard to stomach, but he's looking at what's going on with baseball when you start taking multiple bus rides every single couple of days and And you look at what the Nats to get up to Baltimore, you're splitting. The team to three or four buzzes your staggering arrival times. And what is what is the accumulated weight of that going to do what we see that increase the numbers you look at the in some ways. It looks like they're at Club Med just playing lawn games as a running all afternoon. Cs there in the bubble. Yes, you are in the bubble, and they have the availability and the possibility to do massive amount of testings even look locally. What's happened during this heat wave where you've seen a huge percent of? Towns tights being shut down and then He. has corrupted because of the heat, and we can actually hold onto it, but then you actually have to look at ourselves, and how many of our neighbors have mild symptoms might even be a symptomatic might have come into contact and are still. Passing on getting the test, because they might not actually want to know. Getting a test if you can get, a test is probably smart. If you feel you have any symptoms whatsoever wear masks when you go to a gym where mask if the rule is to wear a mask doors where the mask, this is not anti vaccine. This is not a political statement where the mask protect yourself and protect somebody else. I watched the nets last night till it got rained out, loved it loved it, and they have no fans that. That that affects it. The broadcast isn't as good because there are no fans. All of that stuff is true. It's lesser quality and it's still great I. Don't Look I. Don't WanNa Watch Korean baseball. If I wanted to watch, baseball will be on cattle, WanNa Watch Siri soccer on care about it. I WANNA watch. American with Bacteria Sport Act. You're testing. Point the big story when you saw what happened with Freddie Freeman where he's praying for his life. For degree temp, what happens when it's in season and you see a cornerstone of your franchise have to step away for two to three weeks and a sixty game season. What does that do to the rest of the team? What do they do the fan base? Who is looking for this for some? Comfort as they're trying to, they put that I think they put that in one of the pockets that they have and they keep the other pockets open. I was thrilled to watch the last two nights to watch the nats and the OS. I think people around the country are thrilled to watch their teams. If you like soccer, if you like the MLS I think you're thrilled to watch. Watch it. I, just I I'm happy for this. I want to watch the NBA and I think that will be a diminished product and I want to watch it. Anyone with the six of five start knows fans. Why can't we have that every single? That's really good, so let me get to something else. This is a much more personal nature and have not alerted Michael about this. I hold in my right hand a small paperback. I will go into the paper bag in a second imagine i. am holding a small paper bag in my right hand. This has to do with tomatoes and peppers. I have planted for tomato plants. They are growing up and some of them yielded fruit I have planted for pepper plants. They're growing up in. Some of them have yielded fruit. The peppers that yielded fruit, the like regular bell peppers all got mushy and terrible and eaten by animals. I guess I don't know and I've had to throw out all the fruit nine on mine. This I'm happy to grow it. If, I was able to eat a tomato, or if I was able to eat pepper, I would be thrilled, but the growing it is really what I'm into I mean I'm just happy to go out there and see it every day and see progress in water at every day. I have some odd little small pepper plant that is releasing. Small narrow peppers that are probably hot peppers on some level that I don't really want, but they seem to be immune to animals. Animals don't want them because they're so hot that nobody cares. But, my tomato plants were my pride and joy. And each day I would go out and check them. And I would see because I. Don't have netting. I, wanted netting I. Don't have netting, but I had been immune to squirrels for a long period of time. Oh, no I, to tomatoes that began to turn the first two in the middle of the largest tomato plants. The squirrels when I checked yesterday at noon, they were fine when I checked yesterday. At five squirrels had gotten to them. Squirrels head dug holes in them. Squirrels had eaten them now I can save about half the tomato Michael Come look at these. Can you see then I can? They've been infested by Squirrel. Pause I hate squirrels. I, I will get no tomatoes whatsoever. Scorers will wait I. Guess Squirrels have a sense of color I guess know other blind I. Don't know I. Don't know, but they attack the tomatoes. When the tomatoes were less than a week from being fully ripe, they attacked them. Yesterday I wish I. Gun a BB gun, not a real bullet on because I would kill somebody now it'd be a mistake i. wish I had a BB gun and I sat outside twenty four hours a day one a squirrel poked its little fat. You logging sure I. Am you know into my tomatoes? I would shoot at it, and it would probably reset this just a little bit. Yes, so. So years past I used to dig a tomato pit for you in the yard and the Little House now that would be overtaken by weeds and I set up a perimeter of netting, and you were never able to figure out how to open up the netting, which honestly was just a twig in between the net I you need the netting over the top and not just. Just around the sides to these are flying squirrels I. Don't know I. Don't know I don't know, but it makes. It made me so I was so crestfallen last night. I said Oh God I fad watch the tomatoes, and they'd grown, and they look good fast forward to two thousand twenty. We come back from South Carolina in early April. It's still a very cold spring here. Here yes, so I- looking ahead to the summer I order you a beautiful plants heater sided plan or just two feet by four feet I. had this thing delivered? It was on back order because everyone's trying to turn into a farmer and I figured if we put this on the back patio, which is elevated gets beautiful son. We might be safe from the Squirrel. We're not. We're not as little well. Armaments can offer its ingestion. They broke in my heart. If if listeners can tell me what to do without killing them, and then you know and I don't even I'm not sure. Maybe it's big fat bunnies, but I don't think so I think. What Nigel well well two things first of all, let me tell you about squirrels and seeing color. Apparently they have died chromatic vision, which means they can distinguish and green from other colors, but can't tell red and green from each other so. Lucky jam yeah. Okay! Secondly in in order to control them I think we had this plan down years ago, but you never pulled the trigger. It's just a purchase, a bunch of Langa monkeys and let them sit in control your backyard. Just it's it. It got me so sad. Sad than angry I mean an initial burst of anger and sadness, because I've watched these tomatoes and I've looked at them lovingly and. I take care of them and and it just it is. It's sort of like Charlie Brown and the football. It doesn't matter what I do. I never going to get the put the ruined tomatoes in the paper bag because I looked at that with wide eyes thinking you, you harvested your tomatoes there a day or two from ripening, and you're just doing the final step in the paper. I'M GONNA. Cut Away the Schwartz part and see if I can save half so this is really just for the reveal. Put netting up. It's too late to put netting up I'd like you to put down then if you put netting up I. Know, I will just get confused and get caught in the netting myself. Back and We've been growing. What so we have the same time I got to those tomato plants. We planted Zucchini. Oh, wow, so we've had our first harvest because we were out of hand fallen. It's usually with the big beautiful yellow flowers, big beautiful yellow flowers. You have to put him in the right spot, a front get pollinated, Walker and the hammer love eating Zucchini so the first one he's parading at around the house and up and down the streets whoever can see it, and so we made him a nice flat bread with the Zucchini that he grew. I think that's great, but if you cared about your father. Sympathize with my position. On now it's not too late, but next year it's always next year. I've I've grown things for so I never get anything I mean they blossom. You did rere. Oh? That yeah, that pepper plant now I wish I had played the trick on. You've got you those ghost peppers, so no, they would've been I would've killed myself eating those all right so if anybody is listening out, there can help with this and send an email for next week I'd be very appreciative We will take a break when we come back Richard. Justice. We'll talk about the fact that we're going to have baseball. It's starting tomorrow. We're going to have it I'm Tony Kornheiser? Listening to the Tony. Kornheiser, show.

I don't know I'm trying to grow tomatoes. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser. Show. Is the little thing. Make me smile. Rainbow. While the heard from. And this comes from Karen frayed. Who writes my husband, Ross encouraged me to send in my song for the podcast. It's his favorite podcast first song I've ever written. He and I used to watch PTI every day. In fact before our first child, a mask and child was born in two thousand eight. We bid on and won Jimmy View. Auction Tab our head on a stick with him in it behind you during. He's almost twelve now. We're able to find the actual heads were on. Producers sent it to us after. Attach it to the email. Here's my song little things. Obviously, thankfully, it's not me. Singing was performed and produced by Jim Cristaldi from Nashville. Song Service Hope. You enjoy I. Can you pick that up a little bit more play more. Sounds like Brad days. Years Peyton Manning. Isn't that Nice? Isn't that Nice Richard Justice Dot? COM joins US now and I didn't think that I would get to say this. Having now watched exhibition games the last two nights. They're gonNa Start Baseball tomorrow. The nats are GonNa play the Yankees tomorrow. I don't know how far it's going to go. Through the season, but they're gonNA start. How do you feel about that? If the bullpen blows lead for the nets. Could you do special podcast Friday? Wanders swear gets into game. Or Sean. Mitterrand away. I feel pretty good about it but I. One thing I've noticed is that and by the way for a low low fee? You can have your picture on a cut out in the stands. In fact being a man of means, you can have the whole crew there you know sitting behind home plate at that's park and and and you. If you saw the any of the mets game at city feel where they have. Have the cutouts and home plate? It really helps the visuals of the game and makes it seem more normal, and then when a ball goes, you know into the seats or fouls away or something like that You're gonNA notice, but there's a different dynamic because the announcers. Visiting announcers are probably not gonNA be there. They're going to be things they're going to miss. In most cases, the baseball writers will not especially the visiting writers. two-thirds are are going to cover. Just a handful of games are no games on the road, and so there'll be things like defensive alignments. You Miss, but listen. It's been a long time. And we're GONNA get to see Max Scherzer and Garrett Cole. Throw Real Baseball's on Thursday and I'll take it I'll take whatever I can get at this point I, said at the opening of the show that I watched the nets game last night and I watched the Orioles Park. The night before, and there's nobody in the stands and does have an effect, and it has an effect on the announcing. It's not as passionate as you would like it to be. It's great to watch baseball, but I think that putting something at least from the Centerfield shot behind home plate, putting cutouts of people I know some teams were going to the giants were going to do that. Everybody doing that because I didn't know that with the nats. By the I assume the natural doing most teams are doing it. They're offering you a chance to have. Your Science was saying ninety nine bucks per seat. You've right right now. If you well that depends on where the seat is and I know you, you're a guy that would like to be in the in the diamond. Club seats. Chris Elizabeth Right over the. Nationals in for four to him, holding a glass of White Chardonnay would be an extra twenty five dollars. So. Let me let me get to. This is out of order, but you mentioned this on Tracy. Robertson Tracy and I talk all the time, and Tracy has done so much baseball and she was. She and I were talking last night after PTI about. Covering baseball. She said ask Richie. What is he going to do? Is he going to be at the park? Is he going to be his regular seat? Are they going to have food? IS HE GONNA have plexiglass? Is He gonNA talk to players before? Is he going to talk to players after his it just to be zoom calls. Not Everybody understands what it's like to cover a game. But why don't you tell people what in a non pandemic year it's like in a press box and what it might be like this year. Well they answered all her. Questions is probably know in a normal year you go there at two o'clock in the afternoon and you. Basically the clubhouse opens at three, and you wander the room you wait for for George Springer Match Chapman to walk by, and you have a chat with them or Paul Goldschmidt or you know anybody and you sit around with visting manager and. And the manager and the best part for me is the part during batting practice where just coaches and managers and players come and go and broadcasters and team executives. It's invaluable. That's the the the four hours before game. It's where you do all your work. There's not gonna be any of that this year, and in fact, I. Don't see the value of being at the ballpark. All the like I'm uncovering a cubs next Thursday I'm covering I. think a cubs, royals game, and I'll be nowhere near the game all the interviews you in in the press box you are to where ask your only him. Obese issuing only thirty five press credentials per game and I don't think they've needed those in most cases and all the interviews by zoom, no one on ones. In that that that's our new normal. So, it's not at all like what you've been used to or what I've been used to our whole lives, not at all right? It's nothing like that. You have no contact the best part for me of a work day. He's time those four hours in the that our in the clubhouse. Daddy's exactly right and like. After Games, I would hang around in the the previous era of Astros Baseball. I would hang around in there. With Craig Biggio Jeff. Bagwell embed office, and they would be watching games on a big screen, and it was a graduate school courses. They would just sit and banter about the game and the players, and and all of that there's not gonna be any of that, but everybody's adjusting to the normal like I found myself yesterday, going to the brewers archives and listening to yesterday's conversation. You know you know the people asking the questions. You know the guys answering the questions with their pitching. Pitching coach Chris, Hook and infielder Jed. Jerko Bob Euchre's doing zoom call today with the the big guys, and it's open to everybody around the country. What the PR staffs have said is if you're going to ask a question. If you're going to be there, let the be guys and I do this anyway. You know when you're covering the other team. Let the be guys. Get their nuts and bolts questions out of the way before you start asking Bob Melvin her Dave Roberts other questions. Road announcers are not going on the road like Ron Darling. WHO DOES THE METS Games? He's not going on the road. Yeah, he's. He's GonNa. Sit. He's going to sit somewhere and watch the the sort of universal feed. It's going to be the feet of the home team so like he's not all the questions like you're announcers. When you're on the road, your announcers are not going to be seeing the game in the way they would if they were there, right, it's different right, but I think more and more play by play. Announcers do even when they're in the ballpark. Because press boxes like in our arse space so highly so high in the air. Now I think a lot of guys. Watch the monitor and then look up to see the. The flight of the ball John Miller has been doing that for twenty five years. You get a better feel for the movement, and then you look up and look at the deal and watch the play on full. The cubs had an unusual play the other night where the announcer said and the bases are loaded wolf. The basis are not loaded. A Guy just scored, but you know all things considered, you know. I probably read the stories about the NBA reporters in the bubble confined to their room for a week it. We'll take it I mean after what we've been through with nothing to watch and I may. Look the country's in a different place. People have suffered far more than not being able to watch baseball, but it's good to have something that feels a little bit normal, and there's not many things normal than being able to watch a baseball dream Toronto will play where Pittsburgh I think they have worked out all. So now I. I'm not sure that they're going to be forbidden from playing in Toronto for the whole season. But certainly at the start, and and for the foreseeable future they're gonNA. Be playing their games in Pittsburgh I think they? They considered Baltimore too, but and that makes sense to put them. You know one of the things you want one of the things we we've learned from watching baseball in Korea the less travel you have, the better your chances of keeping everybody healthy test results right now are great, but it's a new dynamic when you put guys on planes. When you put them in hotels, you're going to come in contact with people, but so far. I think we're seeing it somewhat in the cut. You guys are wearing their math. Some are going to wear their master in Game Duchy. Some Orioles. Orioles had masks on during the in the field and at. Is, for the first time he's given up the toothpick and he's he's GonNa Wears Mask and I. Just because I think people now understand this. This virus can be beaten, but you have to be attentive. You are in a city that is one of the hot spots in the country in Houston. There are two Texas teams. There's a Georgia teen. There's an Arizona teen is five California teams. What happens what? The. The risk is higher. Is it not right I mean the astros announcer todd callous. He's Harry Callistus. Son announced yesterday. He's Kobe Positive Frenchie. of the Cordeiro a jet I'm sorry. Jeff Franco or the braves center. Said this morning that he is. He is tested positive, and it's going to be away for a while. We have to deal with. All of us are going to have to deal with this. You know they're. They're players that have tested positive or not with their clubs. It's going to impact. The general manager James Cliques at the race is GONNA come down to who has the fewest positive cases I I'm not sure that's right because they are doing a pretty good job monitoring things. But here if you live here, I think the the the medical. The Texas Medical Center. The largest medical complex in the country is over one hundred percent capacity, and I see you and you hear the stories and the suffering people are undergoing the way families have been impacted, and we all know people that have been impacted are infected and it. It's a wake up call. It's a it's. It's a slap in the face so and I. I think players understand that and I think we all are starting to understand. I'll get you out of here on this Gabe Kaplan kneeling. Would you think? That's her new normal hundred pence neal's last night. Kenyon Middleton the Angels Reliever I think I think it's A. It's an acknowledgment and we're gonNA. See it. We're GONNA. We're GONNA. See it in the NFL that. Players are aware now the the George Floyd murder has made us more aware than ever before, and I don't know why. This was such a trigger. Maybe it's because the video was so. So clear and so awful, but that these injustices these racial injustices have hit touch people's hearts in a way I, never thought possible for it was Gabes it was gay. Kappler's his his way of saying. Look the way we've handled this thing as a country is wrong and something has to change. People are going to be offended by it, but it is a statement and you're going to see probably players in every game. Unthinkable two three four five years ago. That a manager, a head coach would do it, and now I agree with you I think it's I think you're gonNA. See it a lot. I think you're GONNA see it a lot and I also think that you're to that the delicate balances for the man in charge to acknowledge the personal freedom for other people to not Neil and work that out in the clubhouse, what I'm saying? Yes, about listening to and Clayton Kershaw has has written a couple of instagram posts that are so touching about what he's seen and learned during the pandemic.

He music by emailing Jingles at Tony Kornheiser show dot com, okay Jason Lockenfora of CBS in his own Radio Show in Baltimore successful. Successful Radio, show joins us now, and we just had Richard Justice on, and I'm one of those people that wasn't sure. We would ever have baseball because the baseball players hate the baseball owners so much. That is not the case in football. The antagonism doesn't run nearly as deep, but I wasn't sure we'd ever have football because of what I considered to be like an ocean of droplets at every Seattle practice, and now it looks like. It looks like they're gonNA, start football at least training camp. They're gonNA start on a scale of one to ten. Where do you have it for actually starting a real real season? Because now there's no exhibition games. You know. I've always been of the mind that that. because. There's three hundred million dollars in it for each team. TV contracts alone. You know the shared national revenue. With that kind of the stakes that high. And with these teams, not sharing their their facilities with anybody else that you know they have. They can get in and get out whenever they want. Stadiums and training know training facilities and given that the players really want to to play. I always thought they'd do everything in their. Everything's humanly possible to kick this thing off. I, just don't know how long the band can play I think that. It's always for me been the critical question that wants. This machine gets rolling and you know how much sort of human capital it takes to keep the machine rolling on a daily basis, even when you're not playing games, even if you're just having meetings, even if you're just having limited practices, even if you're just using the backfield's. An hour, instead of you know whatever two and a half hours a day. You know it's it's not a bubble. If it's not you know hermetically sealed, it's it's not Orlando and you know. What in the NBA molested doing and. I just don't don't tone. It's a different sport and to your point You're rubbing up on each other. When do play these games and when you do start traveling and I just don't know what that's what that's GonNa. Mean not just for the players, but for the players families you know everybody's so focused on the players. What about the coaches? What about them you know the coaches who are who might have be diabetic or or might have respiratory issues or might just be otherwise More vulnerable. To this would if you know someone's? Parents get sick I just. There's so much unknown, and there's the numbers are just so massive. We start talking about how many people are going to be involved in this enterprise, and then you look at what's going on in some of these NFL cities. I just don't know how long it's going to be feasible or rash. Oh or ethical. But we'll see. We'll say. There was no chance none whatsoever, and you talk about the fact that there is no bubble football players, but there's no bubble for baseball players, and it looks like baseball starting tomorrow night, so so maybe football can as well I will say this and please correct me if I'm wrong. It looks like the owners are so desperate to play this season and make money that they will fold on every single thing. The NFL PA S for well I think we've seen that tied. Really start since the. Players took a page out of the MLB. Players book and and and had the coordinated social media. sort of PR campaign that. Hey, we want to do this, but these guys won't give us. They will create a safe atmosphere for us to do it. So! Excuse me yes on health and safety. certainly they've checked a lot of the PA's boxes. You know this won't be over till it's over and there are still some financial things that need to be figured out and. You know at the end it's it's always about health and safety, but it's also always about this money making enterprise. This is one of the biggest you know. Entertainment entities on the planet. And this is a league that for you know. Pre pandemic was talking about pushing towards twenty, twenty, five billion. A year in revenue, so yes, they still need to sort out. Some of the dollars and cents but right that they. I think that you know there's obviously the the the financial impetus to do this and I think there's also sort of. I! Don't want to say you know who Bris but. We're the NFL. You know what I mean. And if these dues play unless soccer down there in Florida and you know Major League baseball could figure it out and everybody else is able to launch debit. We better launch too well. That's that's what I think I thought it was brilliant to do the Hashtag. We want to play. There is traditionally far less antagonism between the football. Football players and football owners, then between baseball players and baseball owners antagonism, but it's not. It's not to that level. I can see because football careers are so much smaller. I can see football players voting to play and taking a shot at it. What I don't know that I can see and I think you agree with. This is going sixteen straight games. I'm not sure. how You keep that train on the tracks like that. Guys are going to get sick, it is it is going to be an issue and then again. I think a lot of people sort of get caught up in his narrative. While everybody does the right thing, we'll be okay well. Everybody your sort of a subset of the population might do the right thing, but if your state is on fire at if your city is on fire, if people who are in desperate situations can't get tested, and if there are no ICU beds, available and schools are an open, and and the public trust is suffering. Is it going to make sense in some of these hotbeds to have you know eighty odd players plus twenty coaches and You, know all the ancillary staff gathering in large groups at a time when some of these states. You know maybe back to where we were in Maryland in. You know late March you know which is, it's a ghost town and your pay huddled up in your house, and you're not doing anything as a community that. How can we have these football communities like how how does that? Make sense from a public health standpoint from a common sense. Standpoint I think that's where the RUB is going to hit road and. If, that's the case in even five of the states that they play football, and some of these states they play football and have multiple teams. I just don't know what that's. GonNa you know mean for the League, and and if we're at a point where those cities are looking like say you know. Queens looked at April. Are, we really going to have football practice down the street like I. Don't know I. I mean I I wrote down as a question, which has a better chance to finish the season football or baseball, and I don't know that there's an answer I don't know you're not in a bubble. The NBA is proving so far. I don't want because they didn't start yet, but they have no positive tests, because they have been willing to give up a big portion of their lives for their sport, baseball and football, either are unwilling, or it's just not feasible. Yes I think with football. It's just when you start again. Looking at the numbers and then looking sort of at the ripple effect well, you know if we don't want the people who are GonNa. Come in and help prepare and serve meals for these guys to be able to see their family. At a where where's the cutoff? Point for WHO's in and WHO's out and I I just think for football. Again because of the magnitude scale of the operation. It's it's just wasn't GonNa make a whole lot of sense But is that GONNA prove to be what they would have needed to have to get closer to sixteen weeks than they actually get doing it this way. I guess we Monday morning quarterback that when we get there, but but I. I don't really know again. In the is one difference Jason is one difference between baseball and football. Football can go forever. They own all the stadiums. Yeah, they can go till next May if they wanted to start again. Yes, yes, move the draft. It's all fungible. Absolutely. Yes, and baseball is an outdoor thing in cities noted it's not possible. It's different. Yeah Yeah. I do think baseball's got a better shot of finishing. Though because baseball will be. You know seventy five percent done by the time football players. It's I you know real games. Yeah Yeah Can I just leave the grid for a second. Shrek mahomes wants to have a throw off with Josh Allen Josh. Allen allegedly throws at eighty and Patrick Mahomes, eighty yards in the air, Patrick Mahomes says look if he goes eighty eighty five and he beats me okay good. It's a circuit so far there throw the ball so far. People would pay to watch that, wouldn't they? Absolutely people watch long drive contests right and yes, watch all kinds of sort of You know! Bizarre Athletic Endeavors Yeah I would be. I would be all about it. I. Mean I think it would be cool if they made like A. Golf Course for for those guys and you know you've got your drive, and then you got your chip, and then you see if you can put it in the hall I don't know how far you'd have to you know. Apart five would be I i. don't know you know. Six hundred yards. I I. Don't know, but. It would be yeah. I mean especially if you know. We're correct in that. It proves to be a bridge too far to get sixteen straight weeks of football. Then maybe they can create some of these one offs to at least give us something to watch again if we're back in the content abyss, but both those dudes have absolute cannons Mahomes is if there's accuracy element to this tone I think is that. Handicap and I think I think that's one way traffic. Patrick Mahomes but yeah. These DUDES WANNA try to chuck at one hundred yards. I'm all for. Just. You know we'll bought an I. Did the story yesterday and we both said? Why does Mahomes care about this? Why does he care, but he apparently does. I mean what twenty twenty five years old. Yeah, like it's I. Can you know these these guys are having some fun and I think that. The the whole social media aspect of this has has kind of made that fraternity camaraderie you even a little different, and they certainly more immediate that you can be spread out over quarantining during a pandemic, but still be you know five seconds away from interacting with anybody else in the League I think it's all in good fun and again I would watch it. I, don't get you out of here on this, and it's the question that we asked Liz Clark the other day after she'd written this story about the redskins and they're not. The redskins anymore excuse me. Five years from now is Dan. Snyder the owner of that team. I think probably yeah, I I don't know that you know anything else. That sorta consumes him or or gives him at least potential. For For success for to be able to say, I told you so i. just think he's so invested in this that. Anything else he accomplishes, and his other business ventures or media ventures, or whatever just pales in comparison to what it would mean to him to be able to wear a ring around and literally kind of tell everybody hates. Behavior will demand a change. I mean yeah, we can. We can argue whether it should, but the reality is the League is. Is Basically taking a backseat to his own attempts to pay. Through a lawyer he picked to invest. Investigating his organization I. Don't think the death penalty is coming and you know. I, there's no way that that law firms going to recommend that he divest himself now. No, that is an impossibility you'll get. The, League has said Yeah. That's fine. The League's name come on after coming in after the fact and say Oh. No, no, no! That was a sham operation. We need to reinvestigate it. That's not happening and he again to me. His mindset is always that he's in this thing until he can tell everybody you know, I was right and you're wrong. So No, I, don't I don't! I don't I. Don't think anything changes in five years. I mean the whole stadium. Thing will be interesting, and if this further complicates his ability to get that stadium, then that may be problematic, but I have a hard time seeing him selling that team of his own volition. At any point I agree with that, I do plug your radio show for people who? If you're. Wanted to in from two to six and you've gotTA radio. We are here for you inside access on one. Oh, five, seven, the fan. You can also listen anywhere tone anywhere in the world in the radio DOT COM APP wonderful. Thank you, Jason. Always appreciate it. Love. We'll take a break.

You will as well and I also want to recommend folks They can tune into the Adam Ferrara podcast as Michael Wilbon. Wilbon will be the guest this week and that trump's tomorrow everywhere that you normally get podcast, we encourage you. Check it out, or if you like it, so that'll just about do it for us today before we get to the mail bag, let me please introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste I laid traps, the troubadours who get killed before the reach Bay that is Michael Philip Jagger boys in house. Thanks to our guests, they. Richard Justice MLB. Dot Com and Jason Lockenfora of CBS sports. Thanks as well to our sponsors spoke post. In Brooklyn Frog in my throat and remember you can listen on Apple podcast. Of spotify Google play on radio DOT COM radio. Dot Com must do a lot of things if you get the show through I tunes, you kindly leave us a review. We have a bunch of things about Charles. Chips for those of you who remember Charles Chips. This is from Victor. J Char Lap of the Ford. Motor Company in Buffalo New York. My Dad was the local supplier of Charles Chips here. In Buffalo every Wednesday and Saturday I would get up early when school was. Was Out and helped deliver these chips, local restaurants and families. They had the one pound ten, and the even bigger three pound ten. They were the best chips around. They also had cookies and pretzels. Yes, they did the rest of the week he was a Milkman, delivering milk, juice, eggs, cheese, and a variety of frozen frozen foods to families, restaurants, businesses, and even ice cream stands. We used to fill the milk vending machines that were on the siding neighborhoods of milk vending machines. Sadly with convenience stores, opening and grocery store prices adequate. quit this business in the early. You save tens to reuse them, or did you send them back? No, you always save the tents and used them to for whatever you needed. Sometimes you would bring the Charles Chips Tins back to the distributor, and they would replace the tin and give you something else, but if you know in colleges stole things that's worked. Michael Goldstein writes yes, the yellow or Tan. Tins contained potato chips, but the browns had pretzels. Hey, man, what are we even doing out here from reese in London? Sure you worry that a whole show discussing the Washington football team, they really do need a new name is to local, but promoting chain of bagel stores that has three thirty, six, hundred eighty eight miles from my house passes without any such apology on a serious note, though great journalism is definitely a universal language, so hearing experts explain how you end up with important story on any issue is always time well spent from me. Incidentally I'm not. I'm sure it's not just football fans in DC who hoped this will be destroyed that breaks. The camel's back when it comes to Snyder's ownership. Yeah, but it's not going to be there. Quite a few fans of the Washington franchise in this side of the pond, who long for competent less haughty owner plus neutrals it would be a good reason to listen to your esteem friends for whole show again, thank you for bringing your own small amount of normality to those of us who are simply trying to adjust to the new normal Oh, and don't forget, but that's the bagels Nigel.

The Tony Kornheiser Show

"I love lamp"

"Previously on the tony kornheiser show. So then i got an email back quickly actually said hi tony. Thanks for reaching out. We sent you our chair because we're doing advertising and your podcast coming and this was part of the deal. We established with your team surprise. A comfy and luxurious chaired. working agenda. Have a great evening. So i i get the chair and i said to michael. Did you know about this. And we said surprise. The tony kornheiser show is on now. So let's go to the chair. Explain what happened to physically to go upstairs. The chair no explain what you did. Explain what she did the chair out of the box out of the multiple boxes in the box. We brought it upstairs and we actually have built the chair. Yeah you build the chair. I didn't build a chair. Yes so the chair is now in the computer room and it has more functionality than we ever imagined. It seems pretty nice feature. Yeah walker helped me walker and grandma. Carol came into the room to sit on the seat next to the chair. I'm stripping layers off because your house is so hot beginning to get that march summer just hoping lays on helping hand eat a little wheels shoved into the bottom of the chair going. When i'm bigger i can. I can help you build the chair when i'm bigger. Yeah so okay. The chair has a massage feature. But you also at the end. I ask at the end for when michael build something all of the spare parts. Just give them to me. I put them in a plastic bag. And then i put them someplace and i never never found again. Never remember where loyd you say that there is. There's things have to be charged so this is where it gets exciting. I don't know how to the size feature has a portable cord the charge it through. Say your computer which you will never do. You also don't own a laptop. No it would also charge through your power strip at the bottom of the computer so i don't know how to do that to have to plug something in only when it dies never turned this on. I'm never ever gonna should be turning to my left. And letting carol know how to charge the okay so now charged the chair. What happened to a normal chair. You gotta present though. Describe your present again. you're just shaming me. So i arrived. there is a there. Is a brown paper bag a package. That has a sweater and you've just been circling like a shark waiting for me to come in and see this sweater. This is j. peterman sweater. this is j. Peterman take on an errand sweater now. It's very important understand something. We talked about arran sweaters before. They're these three tiny little islands off the west coast of ireland very severe. They have a certain kind of sheep. They make a certain kind of will. They make a certain kind of sweater that goes into the history and create some for the aaron islands. Aaron i aaron sweaters are like bedrock their made in ireland. Where's this may. This would be made in china inspired by it's j. peterman sweater with the cop. I bought a few. I love the copy. I it is. It's the most pretentious copy. And i just think it's wonderful and i bought the sweater with great fear that it'd be terrible and it's it's it's very expensive actually but it looks pretty nice better than expected you still. You're focusing on price. And we came over human when you pulled liz aside the catalog outdoors. You were circling different colors. Which would work with my complexion. She goes what are you talking about. These sweaters yeah then. He told her the back around as to what the aaron sweater actually symbolizes. Yeah the dental water. And i can really see lizzie stitch. So you'll be identifiable if you if you go over the side. yeah now. The best way to describe the sweaters if you remember like this j. crew still around but it looks like it's early two thousand j. crew sweater that you know a college senior. Be rolling up the sleeve. Yes he can't study in the stacks so it looks so i'm happy i'm happy if you're happy i'm happy. You're happy unhappy this arrive before tomorrow when it's going to be seventy five. Yeah well okay. You can just wear today home and then forget it from larry marshall of the foothills collective in zanesville ohio. I get this box. And i don't understand what's in it and i opened up the box and there is an again. This is unsolicited. I'm this is too small to send back but inside tracy the protector. Yeah right like vlad the impaler so inside the box is what appears to be a paint can and a giant lightbulb. You know beautiful round lightbulb. Old fashioned edison. Yes with with an exposed filament. And you know a complicated philemon not just a single line up. And down a complicated zigzag filament and i put it in and i read this cop and by the way i must say that the most important thing is it has the logo of the binghamton bearcats wrapped around the base. The base of this old can paint. Can d- mr tony. A couple of years ago. I found myself in empty. Nester would some newfound free time. That sort of snuck up on me in an effort to keep the woman to whom am related by marriage and my good graces. I figured i needed a hobby. So i started repurposing things into nifty lamps cigar boxes antique coffee cans world globes etc and. I quickly found out that people would actually buy these creations from me so before i knew it a side hustle was born recently. I made a series of touch lamps by repurposing unused paint cans and putting logos on them for colleges major sports team etc. Since i often listen to the pod while tinkering my workshop it seemed nice way to say thanks was to make binghamton lamb for mr tony. I doubt there are many if any at all binghamton bears its bearcats. But it's okay. I'll forgive that. Bears lamb existence. And i will admit i might never have been exposed at school if it were. Not for your podcast. Having lived my life in kentucky indiana ohio. The new york academic scene is outside my bubble but now i know and we can say with a certain level of with a level of certainty that a binghamton bears lamp now exists. I realized the challenges you have electric toothbrushes and many other technological marvels of our time. So here's the instructions. Screw in the enclosed edison bulk. Yes and addison bulb michael plug in the electrical cord and touch the can anywhere. Don't try to figure out how it works. Just accept it if this proves too difficult. I assume michael can assist. We had we had the baby boy. Buzi you're basically like my nineteen month old playing with a rattle yes rattles anymore. But you're you're staring at this with childlike wonderment. As you you can increase the intensity of light entity yes. Yes yes if you ever want cool lamb for a gift or just a treat yourself i camp out over on a website called fcat. S why i've heard of that. Because i think elizabeth has sold jewelry on that. I believe that's two homemade earrings and stuff like that and bracelets it's me in about five million stay at home. Mom selling crafty stuff. But feel free to go there and search for foothills collective all one word and check out some nifty stuff in my real life. I'm a pastor. And if you don't already have the official pastor who makes lamps in his free time of the tony kornheiser show. I would like to apply. You've got larry. Thanks for the laughs in for being a steady voice. So i think that's really nice right. I think this is a really nice thing now. I i don't know what to do with it. I mean i i would use it as a nightlight. But it's pretty bright and it's pretty big today you don't have to roll over and tap the side. Yeah so. I don't know what to do with. They keep it where it is. It's really a great conversation piece. Well you and mom. Yeah not a lot of people allowed in the house. Maybe if the dog starts talking and what do you think she could activate the think she could buy banging into it pointing it so you want to tell the people about golf. Yesterday we played golf. Michael and i played golf. With steve and andrew had a nice really really nice. Time was so cold when we started. It was in the mid thirties. When we started driving over for the frosted teatime and i get the phone call from dads. Are you actually going over i. It's an appropriately so it was. It was cold windy but bright sky and just nineteen nice to get out and walk to play. The course of course is still under a winter setup. So you're playing a lot of interesting short. They don't normally play and it did. It's just a different way to see the course that you know so well particularly with the greens this type of grass just changes it changes color changes texture down all the seasons and it's fun to see it at this time of year so i had on not just one but two of those underarms shirts that that fits you so tightly that make you realize how fat you are and i had them. You didn't have any of them on. I two with them on. And then i had a sweater and then i had a vest over that and i had the leggings. I put on the leggings to keep my legs. Warm one of your pairs of pants apparently keep kept phone down the outer the pair of pants and then the enters as well. But i i was moving. You know like do you ever see when they say and frosty. The snowman learned how to walk. So i was living like that. You know sort of cowboy walk in front of the chemical goal. Yeah very mechanical. Walk actually didn't play badly. I i i think i putted pretty well and i think i broke ninety short course of the course that i play also. Yeah so i was. I was pretty happy. Any pre swing thought trying to keep your lifting so i Not dropping the club. Not my so. I had a really. I had a really good time. First time i played in a very long time. I had a really good first time out in twenty twenty one. Yeah yeah well. The day before. I went and played two holes triple-triple. That's not a good start. it's sort of.

You're listening to the tony kornheiser show. This is the solo soviet. And before i get to it. I want to read this email by john gilmore. Hello i'm considering using the tk show code to purchase a solo stove. But i'm wondering if these units provide enough warmth to offset dc winter temps or if they're better for spring or late fall evening. It seems that the design would cause all of the heat to be vectored straight up above the unit instead of out. My current fire pit provides a radius of warmth that extends six to ten feet but that is accompanied by the smoke that the solo stove eliminates. I've searched online reviews but have been unsuccessful in finding an answer to question. Any assistance is appreciated. Michael are we able to offer. John gilmore any particular systems in terms of actual feet. I can't give you that answer. But i think we can figure this out because we will be taking the trip. Yeah in lighting up the solar stove on those river river sort of front evenings. I i would say this. I think it's gonna. We rarely get those nights in this town where it's going to be well below twenty five for sustained periods of time. So i think you're fine in that same in that same. Six to eight eight hundred rounds they had before. Yeah oh sean on wilpon i. Let's do the stove. Ed i'd says host ad-lib talk about any favorite fireside memories. You have decent reason. Distant a recent fireplaces cold nights i love lighting the fires i put in i go around the neighborhood and i pick up pine cones and i liked the pine cones and i liked the would and i do it for about an hour and a half and it makes me very happy. That's indoors any any night outside outside. Protector of the fire and love. See this is what you do designed when you when you when you've earned another log. I i don't. I don't think that anybody from northern midwestern climates like sitting around a fire every once in a while and solo stove obviously makes us very easy. I'll read the copy. Oh the dog is parking solo stove create story worthy moments fireside fumes not included stainless steel construction designed to regulate airflow and burn more efficiently. So little smoke.

People you're listening to the tony kornheiser show. This is from samuel. Who staged paint samuel. He writes. I have a new song. That came out last week. Called your bomb which also includes the incredibly talent sealy johnson on vocals with me and i would love to play on the show. I'm twenty three years old living in richmond. Virginia i perform under my own name. Sam koi since i was thirteen years old and a couple of months ago. Rebranded to saint samuel following pretty dramatic image and sound change. I've agree in. it from vce. You have a full-time job working for tech company from home. I spend a couple of hours every night working on my music as it is a true love of mine and hopefully something. I can turn into career someday. Saint samuel again bomb is the name of it and plays in michael wilbert now as you people know. Prepare a lot of questions. And it's easy to prepare questions for wilpon on the day after the all star game and i wrote a whole bunch of questions down on the all star game and then something happened. That changed our lives of not dramatically. Or anything like that but something happened that change the course of what we're gonna talk about. Of course he and. I both watch the golf yesterday with different interpretations of different people. But as i was going through the dial after the gulf i went to espn and found something. So unexpected and fabulous that. I texted him and kelleher texted me and him and everybody got on this thing. Well bun describe what we were able to watch fifty years later. Yup fifty years ago. Today is the anniversary. Today is the anniversary of happened fifty years ago today. The fight the first fight madison square garden ali-frazier which is The greatest event of my life. And there's no doubt about it. It's the greatest sporting event. Maybe just the greatest event or nothing. Nothing nothing that has happened since is as good or as dramatic or is compelling or worth retelling or rewatching or reliving nothing. I was twelve years old when this happened. And i'm like a lotta people. I was able to actually see the fight Not in person. But i was able to go and watch it on closed circuit which we have the only way you can consume it in in in in the united states of america as far as i know and it cost i remember it. Cost fifteen dollars. Fifteen dollars in nineteen seventy one to go and see this fight and and don. I had my father. Can we go see this fight to three months earlier. Can we go through the fight. This is me and my father's my mother's stepped in and said no. No no. no no. You can't spend forty forty five dollars a week. Twenty five dollars. It was probably about a third of a week. Check of my of my father's salary so no you can't. You can't go see that. But on the night of the fight at dinner my father had placed tickets on our dinner plates. Wow and that's so nice. It seemed it. Were four of them because michael sunny went so my father's spent sixty dollars. I i i know. It's the most upset. I've ever seen my mother ever in my life at that time and we went to the chicago amphitheater to watch it on closed-circuit who was supposed to be in black and white but 'cause fourth because he had to spend like thirty bucks a seat to go see it in color at the chicago stadium but somehow the seeds got mixed up or something and for the fifteen. We got it in color. We got to every seat every seat everywhere. This thing was shown was packed. And you know it was the most devastating night of my life because hamad ali lost the worst night of my life to this to this day. Worst night as. I look back on what i felt. And so tony when i watched that i've watched the fight back. I don't know six eight times. Last night was the first one is taking me. Sixty two years old to watch the fight and just say to myself. Oh yeah i'll he got his butt. Kicked is taking me fifty years. I don't know about you but for me. I finally last night reconcile myself. That joe frazier landed more never hooks on it it just if people think is people listening to this. Who are you know. You know if you're under if you're under fifty eight e can't even remember it. People that some thing in their town was bigger. You know if you grew up in pittsburgh steelers your bigger either big to you when you grew up in chicago. Bears are bigger washington. The washington football teams bigger with as they beat the dolphins. No nothing was even close to this. In terms of worldwide importance of a sporting event not feel olympics. Not the world cup because of great britain. Were they think a lot of the world cup. Thirty percent of the people watched the fight. Thirty percent of the population of great britain watch. The fight was started at about two. Am in london so one of the things that you know is remarkable about it. Is that three hundred million people worldwide. Watch this and you say well. Three hundred million. It's not that many. I mean his three hundred million people in the united states but most of the world was not wired for closed circuit. They weren't wired if everybody was wired for it. Five billion people would have watched this if they could write. This is in a period of time. And now we will will. And i will sound old and we don't wanna sound old so i'm going to be as professorial as i can be. This was in a period of time. Where the most important in sports bar none not close not the super bowl not the nba champion. Not the world series. Champion was the heavyweight champion of the world. He was the most recognized figure in the world. Maybe including the pope because not every country is catholic. The heavyweight champion of the world. That's right. This was a fight in the greatest. Indoor sporting arena in the world between two undefeated people of enormous worth to their sports or miss worth. It had a back story. That i'm not gonna go into about the insults from our leaders. I'm not even going to bother to do that. It's unimportant now. But it was the most anticipated sporting event ever. It's really simple. Ever to that point because more people could see it. Because of the limited technology then could dempsey tunney dempsey. Tunney was close circuit. It didn't exist so you had a market for it. You had to incredibly worthy fighters you had a background of politics and social feeling that was important and you had a performance by joe. People said he was never that way again of course not. He rose to the occasion like nobody ever rose to the occasion. Casali was good. Even in the thirteenth and the fourteenth and the fifteenth round ali stood back and unleashed right hands and joe frazier was relentless and we watched this review. We watched it again with mark. Kriegel and joe torre and it was mesmerizing. My right mesmerizing. You can't take your eyes off it. I watch it again if it started. The telecast started down its first of all what happened to the two men and people don't understand they don't the politics of it you know so the heavy weight championship or the world going back to salva always did have something to do with. Maybe it doesn't anymore for the first time in. I live with the great white. Hope that was that was a that was an important part of the dynamic of heavyweight championship of the world. By the time we got to see what's going back jack johnson. Yes so and so you look at this and you say what are you talking about. Wilpon your idiot. The both fighters were black. No idiot great white out of a destitute man. Black man who wound up in philly but from mr mississippi. Tony joe frazier. Let south carolina. But i could be wrong. I told south of south carolina. Yeah yeah and and and the there's a there's an incredible documentary about the fight. That people should see if they think. We're exaggerating one. Word is called a nation divided. And i think it was on. Hbo and it set the stage for this fight. And what it meant to people why everyone watched every one not like. Everyone watches the bachelor. Every single human being watched this thing and it had a stake in. it hasn't opinion about it. We were tony. I was in Sixth grade and the teacher said mrs poll said everybody raise your hand. Who's rooting for. Joe frazier tonight and one kid. Linda owens i remember this to this day. Remember her name linda owen. She raised her hand. Everybody rachel from holly night. Thirty one kids raised their hand and then chased. Linda owens home from school like a mob chased her because she wanted. Frazier was not what you said. In black america in urban black america there maybe rural america. Not where. I live not in down in the south side of chicago. We also lived. Well you also you also need to remember this. There's a lot of young white people who are rooting rally as well. Because they thought he got hosed when he took away his title he at all was there and so you know to go and see this to see it and then to he who and of course tony as as we know it wasn't even the best fight as it turns out at the time. It's the most important sporting event on the planet again world cup. No no no no. No no no this fight and so. The thrilling manila turned out to be just because it was so violent and it was so incredibly. I dunno waged that the third fight turned out to be better. You would agree with me on that right. I would but there was nothing ever as stunning as a going. Down in the fifteenth round ali went down and you think oh great made long and he was the three. Yeah he was. He was staggered in the eleventh. He went down in the fifteenth. And that was the gasp moment because this is mohammed ali. And you go. I'm joe frazier. Joe frazier has never gotten enough credit for that fight. This just unbelievable gradients because there are people like me. Even the dogs i was twelve. Who share what i thought. You're in denial. Urine frazier denial. Yeah so greg greg. Bryant gumbel speaks so eloquently to this about how it couldn't have happened. It just couldn't happen because if all he lost we all love and that's the way that half half the country is fifty fifty. But you didn't have all the polling and sort of real people able to weigh in that you have now so you. You didn't exactly know who we rooting for home. But it was probably fifty fifty or along those lines and and gumbel branka talks about crying himself to sleep that i don't know what i cried myself to sleep tonight. I was off for weeks. The the notion that ali could lose this fight. You know of course. Twenty in kriegel says is very eloquently. I recommend to people you. There's no way this is only playing once it's gonna play over and over and over so good it's so good and i didn't even know was on so good and not only not how about. Joe frazier was never the same. Well neither guy. No neither. Neither guy was done. Yeah it's he spent all the money. He spent every ounce of energy that he had in that. No that's what i'm saying. I'm just using that as a metaphor everything he had he spent on that fight and there was nothing left as as good as he still was. Not only that. After that they had an hour long. Show on walter joost junior and the people he photographed and chris evert and kobe bryant and joe nemeth and ken griffey junior talked and talked and talked. And you went my god. I didn't know these people could talk like this. So interesting something totally. So i didn't watch the all star game. I'm sorry. I don't care even today. I don't care people how you can't say that it's an exhibition. It's nonsense the greatest event of my life and then it does sort of continue was. How can the celebration of coats you can course ali. But how can you tie that. People know to the tour photographer. Well 'cause he and life lifer how about the fact that they got him all. The i got them. All sports illustrated the great. They're the greatest late enough to see when joost photographed ali and frazier toward the end. We don't see that. No no. I was done but i was so happy to have seen this show to have heard these people. I was so happy. And the all star game i literally went over for like honestly five seconds and i said to myself. Why am i watching this. Why let me go back to over. I knew they had to get somebody had to get to one seventy. But then i said i said i'm not watching it and i just say this quickly I know we have. I watched kobe. Bryant talk all. He's very embarrassed i. I've talked to kobe. Bryant from i don't know maybe not eighteen to forty but i dunno two forty. His whole adult life and kobe. Bryant was brilliant. He was mesmerizing. Talking about the photography of walter ios and talking about just a pre at one point koby says you know there are pictures and then there's art. This guy was an artist and he talked about just sitting down with walter ios going over photographs and things koby himself and he clearly did this about a year and a half ago the after this interview took a long time to documentary. Yes and it was great. Chris evert. you're right all the place. Were great great be i. I got emotional. But so it's understandable to see precedes. The know that this person is gone and by the way when with tiger woods ever this great on campus. It's amazing to me. No it was amazing tech. Nicholas talking about how he got into golf that his father was a pharmacist had no they revealed themselves. All all of whom were very likable. They reveal themselves. i will just. Everybody knows that's how. I feel about kobe. My favorite moments with kobi's. Kobe would call you over and say that guy over there. I hate his guts. It was a it was a teammate. I hate him. I can't stand. Who likes this guy that just a right. The all it was it was that was tv yesterday. Kids if you can watch it the all star game. I if i could haven't chance if you have a chance to see either of both of these shows please do it right. I'll talk to you do that. All right michael wilbon boys and girls will get out of here.

I'm around like people who are twenty five or thirty i'm would. Hey you know. I feel pretty good about myself and then i see something sixty five year old person kicking my ass off so good competition. Jay bilas is sort of like an accountant in the sense that there is a period of time where you are busy. Busy busy busy accountants. Have that right. Before april fifteenth and yours is essentially the same way and just just from an overall standpoint. Because i know it's the job. I know and i know you love college basketball. You played college basketball. You great at it. Has this this season. We'll talk about this a lot. We're not engaged in it. We feel that we try to make ourselves engaged in it. But we'd never we never crossed the threshold into submerging ourselves in as we used to all the time. How about you. it's about the same. I mean i'm. I'm immersed in it because it's my job but it's not been the same and And i think the the difficulty for me has been the loss of community in the sport. That i didn't realize how much of my enjoyment for this from The sport came from the interactions with players and coaches day to day stuff. And my colleagues. I mean i can't even interact with my colleagues in more and And look we're doing everybody's doing the best they can. I think we we've all done a good job to get to this point but I i. I told a friend of mine the other day. It's like it's like if you went to a comedy club and it was just you in the comic and you're you're the only one in the audience is the same jokes and it's so funny but for some reason if you're not laughing with a whole bunch of people you lose you lose a one of the most important elements of the experience and i didn't realize what a community event I did realize. But i didn't. I didn't internalize as i should have. What a community event. A game really is second probably only do a A church service or something in and how There's a feeling of togetherness in a communal feeling. There's a real rhythm to it. I mean even if you are in a booth you know who the assistant directors are you know who the stage manager is you go into the truck. You know who the producer is. You may be alone in the booth but prior to that it is the community you talk about you eat together you drink together you you have a common goal to make the show as good as you can and if that is gone and we've had this npto and if that is gone you may be able to do what you consider to be a good show or even a very good show for the conditions you're working under but it never feels great in the way you've had that great feeling a million times right you've had that in your life. Yeah it's basically a do the best you can Feeling and and you know the only positive there has been is. There's no traffic after game everything. And so you get in your car and get wherever you're going right away and you don't have to sit traffic or wait around or anything like that so you don't have to deal with that stuff and then it has changed honestly. Tony's changed the on air part of it. That you if i'm doing the duke carolina game or you name the game and and there's a packed house and and the places juiced when somebody makes a steel and a dunk or something You know you let the crowd take it for a period of time and they get all the crowd shops and all that and now we don't have that so i if you if you do what you normally do you've left a bunch of dead air and and it sounds like you know. We're covering a practice on wednesday So you've had to change the way you broadcast games. And and that's been a difficulty in some of the game honestly There's no reason for me to be there because Because of all these protocols and i get it i'm not complaining about him to say and how it is it's like we've been the same distances of accrue. Doing a football game has been and so i. You know you're you're like. I can't even identify some of the players. I'm not exactly sure who some of them are. So you're at times. I've been calling the game off the monitor which i've now off the tv set that we have which i've never done that. That's been used only for replay. So you've kind of had to change the way you do things a little bit but but it's all you know. It's all part of the deal speaking your first point when i was doing monday night. Football the this is the importance of crowds. You can watch a game from your house and you can almost make it feel like it's normal without crowds but crowds play such an important part when you're broadcasting. Something would happen in football. And i'd be ready to say something and i would hear in my ear. The producer jay rothman and he would go lay out. lay out. because as you're describing jay you're describing the screaming from the crowd and and how even the people broadcasting the game have to be cognizant of that because that is that's the wave that carries you along and you don't have that now it's gone. Yeah that's the. That's the emotional part of the experience for the fan and and for the broadcaster to i guess but my rule for myself. It's not. It's not a rural. But what i tell myself as i over the years if if i if i have to raise my voice in any way to make my point Or say what. I want to say layout that that it can wait like nobody's at home after some great thing when people are jumping up all over the place you know going. I wonder what bill thanks. you know. They don't care so leave it alone and then when you get a replay later on praised the action or explain it or whatever you want to say but in the moment you just kind of have to leave it alone and sometimes the best thing you can do as a broadcaster so lay out a reminder that all the time game i think that's too and let and let the let the energy the organic part of of the play just takeover. I should ask you this because everybody knows that you went to duke. I think i'm right that you were on my cfc's first final four team on my right on that i long for i everything first. Acc champion. i ended up tournament team. i final fourteen. I number one team today. But so you go back with him and that program and all of that when you see duke and north carolina as they are now marginal certainly duke. A marginalized team is there. Is there any feeling internally that maybe we want to suppress but any feeling of sadness. No there there. Not a feeling of sadness. Just a feeling of empathy for any team. That's going through this. And and one of the things that i remind some of my colleagues when you know we talk about the carolina and some of these in michigan state. This year is Teams that have struggled at times and and it seems like we're always talking about them and and their their middling this year. And that's you know that happens but you know we're we're i tried to explain like this is the way the overwhelming majority of teams in the country. That's how they feel every year like it's a grind for everybody every year. The exceptions are duke and kansas and carolina and some of these teams against that and going over that that are winning all the time and when they have a tough year. We're we're like what's wrong with them. I what's wrong with them. It's sorta normal for the teams to go through this process when they're really young they struggle and they win two in a row and we think they've turned the corner and then they lose to two in a row we think the world's ending It reminded me when i watched them. It reminds me of my freshman year in in college where we started all freshmen. And you know we. We lost a lot of close games. We got blown out a few times. And we wound up having a losing record and And we turned it around the next year became you know ranked team every year from then on out but it was hard to figure out like how do we get out of this and And you know took the summer until we we kind of learned. You know we could regroup you can't regroup during the season it's really hard to do that and Know i liken it to you know you're in a fight You're in a fight and you're getting punched and the bell never rings it only rings at the end of the fight. And that's how that's how we felt. And i think that's how duke feels right now and You know we we. We sit on the sidelines as broadcasters and observers and writers and all this stuff journalists and and. I'm not saying we shouldn't do this. It's our job we should. But but you know it's funny we make these pronouncements and we have to be definitive all the time instead of their. Sometimes we just don't know and and with duke when jaylon johnson opted out. They're better off without them. People are saying they're better off and i was like. What are you kidding up. Better off without a lottery. Pick the and it's not his fault and then when they want if you games without him now of sudden you're seeing there are free and without him that proves it and like stop. Stop saying that. That's not true. It's not true and and it's not just one thing you can't just point to one thing and it's not and they're not a bad team now that they've lost three in a row. They're they're are decent team. That is struggling to win. Just like every most everybody else is. Just i at my age. It's just sort of shocking to me. What i grew up with as a sports writer. Starting when i was twenty two twenty three twenty four years old and before that when i was watching college basketball the notion that the acc and the big east are not great is just very hard for me to comprehend. You know it it. It really is yes. They're just you know you go but they are always great. Well they're not great now and it's just weird. I know it's very weird. And they're in the acc point. There's no there's not a single acc player award Final fifteen less so they. They've put fifteen finalists out right before the end of the season as we get to march madness not a single. Acc player and usually tony in our in our experience in our lifetimes. Your first team all easy. See your your first round draft pick and that isn't true this year. It's not and and you know we're we're flipping coins as to who's going to be first team lacey. Who's gonna be the player of the year and all that stuff That's usually not the case. Thank you so much for for being on. I hope to play golf with you at some point. And we'll call you from when you're in the bubble in indianapolis if you are you gonna go or we'll go to assume go no. It's too restrictive. I could actually accomplish more outside of it with Television duties and writing and all that other stuff because Once you're in the bubble. And i think some of this is because of optics. You can't leave your hotel and even the how about this. Tony the the people that are on the nwa tournaments electric committee. They're not allowed to leave their hotels. So they're they're going to be strict isolation and they're going to be no closer to the players than the fans that they let it but they don't want it they don't want it to look like the players are being isolated and nobody else so they're gonna isolate everybody and say see. We're doing it with everywhere the way we're doing it. Everybody what the schools did is on them. What the conferences did on them. This is us and And you know the some of the some of the committee members are like are you kidding. Like i can't even walk outside or take a jog that makes no sense but but that's what they're doing. They're they're going to be there. The committee members are going to be there for close to a month. Without being able to lea- leave their hotel unless they're going you know and they're hermetically sealed buses to the to the arena. So my god. It's like tom. Hanks in the terminal do not go outside. Go outside. that's america. do not go out. That's where we'll talk. Thank you jay. We'll talk to you soon. Thank you very much. Bye-bye jay bilas poison. Girls always a pleasure to pleasure to do this. Show today We will take a break when we return. We have email and jingles or jingles jingle and emails that works. I'm tony kornheiser. You're listening to the tony. Kornheiser show county courthouse. This is the michelob. Ultra read in sports. If you think joy only happens after you win think again. Look at the world's most successful athletes they don't spend all their days grinding away. They take the time to enjoy themselves. Like having michelob. Ultra with friends. Because they know that happiness is the key to winning and the joy is the whole game. Not just the end. Game in my life is a sportswriter and somebody on television. I can think of two teams that exemplify this more than others. And i don't want you to get the wrong impression because the be a professional athlete means you have to work very very hard at it. You're an extraordinarily narrow slice of accomplishment. When you reach the pros but having fun is important as well. I would give you two. I would give you the two thousand nine hundred eighty nets who every time. They hit a home run dance in the dugout and when they danced in the dugout. The cameras state on them. And it made all of us who rooted for the team very happy and there was a sidebar to that if atom meeting or how he kendrick were involved in a play that resulted in a run. They sat next to each other on the bench and they did a power shift as if they were driving car and that to give them great joy and gave us as viewers great joy. The obvious other example is the eighty five bears. Maybe the greatest single season team in the nfl when they put together the super bowl shuffle and everyone went. Oh my god you can't do that. That's going to jinx you. You gotta keep your nose to the grindstone. But no they were the best team ever. They went through the playoffs. Something like ninety one to ten and even wilpon knows how good they were. And i don't get angry when he says it so.

"There's no I in Jeanne"

The Tony Kornheiser Show

1:04:01 hr | 9 months ago

"There's no I in Jeanne"

"Previously on the tony kornheiser show and he wore you close. There's a big deal johnny carson. If anyone is old enough to remember and some are listening to me they remember johnny carson and remember how stylish. He was in a tagil stylish way and he wore a narrow jacket every once in a while. So that was big for pierre cardin. But if you're going to tell me that the creation of the nehru jacket is more important than breaking the sound barrier. I'm gonna ask you to leave the earth medicine. You're just as stupid to be on the earth. Tony kornheiser show is on now. And i'm sure jeannie mcmanus agrees with me on that and we'll get to her and a second. Let me just open by saying two things. One to greg garcia who listens. I did get the email. I thought i responded to it. Maybe i didn't respond to it. Or maybe i hit the wrong button and sent it to chef roberto dona which i do most of the time. That's very possible to and if you heard that small laughter in the background i welcome my son back. Michael is back from south carolina. Surprising me to be here today. Which makes me very happy. We're gonna open. We're going to have gene torreon and we're going to open with some news. And before i get to that i will say that when tori got on the phone tori tell. Tell the people what you said. When you got on the phone hook-up about jeannie. Why said i was so excited that we got to be on the show together. Today is spectacular. But i said you always referred to her as jeannie but women. She introduces herself to people. I hear her introduce herself as gene. So i thought maybe i'd been mispronouncing it all these all these years so so my reaction gene was that i just do that all the time. I say genie. Because i've always done that. Any never said to me you fool never said that to me. I would have remembered that. So are you okay with being jeannie to some and gene to most. And how do you think of yourself. I think of myself as jean. I have never referred to myself as jeannie. I grew up as jean at about age. Fifty people started calling me. She need this belting worth a compliment. And i think that because of the way it is spelled j. a. n. and eat many people and and i understand why think that you pronounce that genie but back. When i was growing up it was actually quite a common name in catholic schools and he name. My mother wanted to name me for a good patron saint and so that patron saint joan of arc. Why didn't you name me joan. That's my background mash. So yes sure. Okay so i. I wondered if this is a whole catholic thing. 'cause gene that's gonna be so hard to say blessed sacrament and busy georgetown visitation. Jeannie will be just too much fun for the nuns right. That's too casual to hit. Yeah that's right. Yeah there were some names that you were not allowed to name a catholic baby. It had to be a saint name. You couldn't name a baby. Holly no maybe you could. Well molly i mean it had to be a saint's name had to be in the canon of saints. So there's no catholics name. Justin austin or things like that that are not saints. Knows i mean you know back. Then the cosmos have saints was pretty large. It's been thin down recently. Some of these turned out to be apocryphal. Not real So so probably non often there might have been adjusted so this is what i was going to say is. My name is anthony. Nobody calls me anthony. I've never been called anthony. My mother did it when she was angry. But very very rarely. And i've always been tony at an advanced age. I have a name that ends in. That familiar sound toni. Childs name tori. You took the name tori and that has the same sound. I've always you know all of my friends. I have a friend from high school. bobby candle. He always refers to himself as robert. Everybody calls him. I guess now they call him robert. Because you wanna be an adult and the diminutive form sort of makes you more childlike. It's comfortable for me. But do you feel that way. That if you are jeannie you or somehow reduced and i really i mean. Come on at this point of smattering number of i think i think this is fair revealing tony. This is a new year's thing. We need to make shift and called gene as i started through it what she wants to be called. Oh yeah no people should be called what they wanna be called even if it's your holiness. If that's what you want people should be called that. I take that cemented genie in the washington post newsroom was said howard simon who has sent the managing editor so the second in command. The genie and i was not going to walk up to the managing editor. And say. Excuse me could you please call me. So that's how it kind of grew in the newsroom. Okay all right. So i got it i nigel. Do some news okay. We'll start off with some college football though coupla bowl games last night my god did you see. Did you see this guy kyle. Trask who everybody says is a heisman trophy candidate because he had a great year at florida. He threw three interceptions in the first quarter. He killed his draft stock. He went down around at least around. Maybe two rounds. Oklahoma destroyed florida florida's lost three games in a row. Oklahoma maybe the best team in the country. Right now they did. You watch any of that. Gene tori to watch but is wasn't a story to evening the smash trophy. Just gonna get to that. Wiscon- whatsapp wins. The vaunted duke dukes mayo oberle forty eight hundred eight and in the celebration. Afterwards they dropped. It's one of those crystal trophies in the shape of a football. They dropped it in it. Smashed into thousand pieces. They later claimed to have fixed it by attaching a tub of duke's mayonnaise on top of the base of the trophy. But this is what i was gonna ask. Twenty eight ounces. yeah did they. Did they coat the thing in mayonnaise so that nobody could have held it yourself a salad. Now yeah glass salad. I am a great supporter of duke's mayonnaise. What is it. is it duke zebra. Who's who's who's the duke in this managed. I think it's very popular in the. It was very fun for a while. It is better than helman's ace and didn't people like on a garden. Put it on the on the map if you weren't from the south i think that's how we yeah. I think that's how we learned about no-show granted no sugar to it. Oh michael tell them about your your your pilgrimage. Xp's we'll get to that. I need. I need more runtime for that. Go to my four chicken finger. Platter that i chasing the boys between the zacks fees and the burger king off exit. Twenty two okay. In what state were you as. North carolina north carolina. Okay tremendous because michael went out on a reconnaissance mission to find out about zak's be since we've had so many people from statesboro georgia proclaim. How great zacks spy's is because it is from state tried to georgia chicken sandwich. But they only had it on. Texas coach was which was just baffling to me. So i went with what i knew different. Spice blender they might find it a chick flick so gene as as a as a former food editor. Are you up or down texas toast. I don't know what texas toast is. It's gigantically thick bread. Take three pieces of white bread together with a lot of butter on it. Yeah it's really it's enough. It's a meal in itself but a bad meal. The bad news. I in my stomach. Yeah that's what it would do. Dodgers go ahead well. This is some sad news for me. Because i'm a fan of the boston bruins but very good news or at least good news for your washington. Capitals zunino of the format. Captain of the boston bruins. His signed a one year deal with washington. Capitals chara aged seventy nine will make seven hundred ninety five thousand dollars for washington things to know three things to know one is that he's going to be in the hall of fame. He's a great player. More appropriately for this deal. He 6-foot-7 he's the biggest guy in hockey is six nine. Maybe he's normal. He's absolutely enormous and he's one hundred years old. I mean it's doubtful. He can play very well at all but totally you go to all the games you must know chara from the bruins of him largely because of my children and who are bigger cap fans than i am and they're really excited and they thought it was great and it's only eight hundred grand or something like that. Yeah yeah tj. She's story very quickly. Sure so christmas morning are are wonderful. Children give brian and meet a cameo video. I think we talked about cameos before famous. People do these quick videos very personalized someone. You pay a hundred bucks two hundred bucks. Whatever is depending on how famous the person is. And they're very very well done. I am young devon gate. got me stormy daniels. Last year for my birthday score daniels did a very nice job So they can. Kim you video from tj. Oh she. i'm skilled performer. That's how come she did a good job. But go ahead please. She knows how to show up so is tv and he just wonderful video for. Brian texts being kept fans. I hear you've had loopier student jersey. Some i have which is saying something. Great christmas happy new year. Whatever really well done and we watch it. And i said is great and i looked at my kids who not necessarily plan ahead and i said how long ago did you have to get that. They said yesterday christine and it's his birthday so now i'm thinking to myself. How nice guy is he or how badly for the million at the cafe him that he morning hundred bucks. I'm chris disease. There's a lot of money cameo videos Lot of lot of money in this really bit. Tv actors who are famous in one scene. Yes i should do your the wheel. Tony's retirement income. That's good okay. What else you can go cook kicking in their kitchen do that. Didn't you always Tony celebrity lunches with people. No i hate celebrity lunches as gene. Well knows and i went on our first and last celebrity lunch together. Awful after after you order over. There's nothing to talk. What do you think about the nets offseason to catch what else melancholy. Happy betrayals mr tony. I'm don wells better. Known as marianne on gilligan's island passed away yesterday at the age of eighty two after battling covid nineteen. So i was not i mean. I know gilligan's island. I know what people looked like at that period of time. I am nod as enraptured of this particular show as many people. My age are I think she's probably the last surviving member of the cast team. Did you watch that show. Was that a big one for you. One second of it never know. Yeah i don't know tori did you. You're you're pretty young. you wouldn't have done it. Yeah i know. I think was probably winding up when i i liked it and i think wasn't it one of the first shows where there really was this ensemble cast and you can know them and they. It was as much their personalities as anything else throughout i was quite i guess they were like six or seven people away. Yeah idiot when i was. I thought maybe it was true. I think i thought it was a true story documentary. Yeah wh when it was on we were a one tv household yeah heart content that now but it was often the case back in olden days i understand that and then i guess your parents get to rule as to what will be on if you have one. Tv we had one tv for one car in one tv. Pretty much all of my life. Until i went to college. We had one car in one tv and we didn't get colored television till i was A junior or a senior in high school. We didn't have it you know didn't have it. It was no color as all black and white. What else nigel. By the way one smoker. Tina louise who played ginger. Is the laps. Living cast member. Good is good for her good for her. I have one final tori. Maybe your children can get her to a celebrity video for you next year. I did it. And i bet it's not two hundred bucks. I'm just fifteen dollars and carfare. Nothing tony this is what many people are describing as the perfect crime to take you to peabody massachussetts on christmas eve to a petco. A couple of into the store around four thirty pm asked an employee if they could play with. Elbino cinnamon ball python. How many of us have wanted to do that in our live. Play bino cinnamon ball python when the employees. That's against the store policy. The man said well. Then i'd like to just buy it. So the employees put the snake in a box brought it to the register area when employees put it on the counter. The man grabbed the box and he and the woman with them ran out of the store and they are still at large. As is the albino cinnamon ball python. That is the perfect crime. Well it's perfect except that there's undoubtedly pictures of these people at the register. Don't you think one would think i'm not sure. How high tech. I don't know if they have simply safe at petco. If they did they could just review. That video aren't there tom. Sniffing dogs around the honey. Yes we'll have to bring them up from the special duties down in the everglades. The hunting the burmese that but so that is the whole point. If they avoid florida they can keep this snake until the snake eats them because the snake will eat them right. That's snakes to lead them. It'll wrap itself around them crush them and eat them. Yes and the other spouse will say. I don't know why they did this. The snake always seemed like is so much juice one day. I'm gonna eat you all right. Okay thanks everybody. This is fun. I appreciate it. That's that's gene. Not genie anymore and tori. And we'll take a break. Thank you we will take a break. And we'll come back with jason lockenfora of cbs sports. I'm tony kornheiser.

It's ben in its shack. This is called took christmas and robbed done. Men writes every year. We talk about doing a christmas song and this was the year we wrote it for a yet untitled hallmark movie filming on the cape and then parenthetically add. Set your dvr. Carol wanted to slow version. But we send you the rocker. So you know they're really wonderful there f- and they send us stuff all the time and they're going to will play jeff mall later as well crooked coast. We're big fans of theirs. They play jason lockenfora of cbs sports. And and i'm gonna start. I'm going to do local. Just because i know you've talked about this on radio because you couldn't be in this area and avoid talking about this. What do you make of washington abruptly. And i think correctly. I can't correctly cutting dwayne haskins and nobody claiming him. Nobody wants him. what do you think. Well i think that the transaction was inevitable It turns out They didn't need them anymore. Didn't think he was one of their three best. Quarterbacks three most available quarterbacks around the Third quarter certainly by the end of that game when heineke rain around and made a few plays at that point he was completely expendable They weren't gonna fire him during that game but they sure we're gonna fire pretty soon after And they would have done it the previous week. And i shouldn't say they say ron rivera would have done it the previous week. If he thought that was the best thing that the the best move to make to try to win a vastly important football game and he decided that no. This guy might give me my best chance to win. And i need to. I need to explore that option and then reached the point where he no longer thought that and then it went from being a defrocking of captaincy and a forty thousand dollar fine to a termination and have a nice career. So go ahead. no no. I so let me. Just say this. As somebody who's watched him. I am so tired of people writing columns bleating for him to get another chance. He's had multiple chances. He blew every chance that he had. He had terrible behavior off. Feel terrible behavior off the field and he wasn't any good on the field. He wasn't any good so i mean everybody blames all the other people involved in this. How about blaming him. I read a story last night. I read a story last night. I hope to get another chance. And i'm really going to be better. You know what. He's johnny manziel. He's not going to be better. Am i wrong on this one. I don't know if he. Johnny mans out. Johnny manziel had some some demons And some some substance stuff going on. That doesn't have that but it's repeated bad behavior beaten. Well i'll say this johnny. I mean nobody was giving up on Menzel at age twenty three they. They just weren't He wasn't out of the league in sort of Expunged not even all the way through his second season I think johnny manziel play before he should've and same thing with with haskins. I think johnny manziel got caught up in some coach verse. Which i would say half can barely jason did him no favours by playing him when he did He got caught in a tug of war between the coach. Didn't want to be there anymore. and an owner who came this close the fire in that coach over the spring and summer. Excuse me The the year they drafted haskins. And no. I'm not surprised that nobody claimed. Because it's a lot of money on a rookie contract and everybody knew he was gonna clear. And then if you have some interest You can get them at your price on your terms Do i think someone signs into no frills deal Probably a multi year deal because if it does work out you wanna be able to control him for a while. I would not surprise me tone and then where it goes from there boy. I don't know there's a lot of variables he's got a lot of growing up to. It's gotta be the right group Around him but i i would just say this. It takes a village to raise a quarterback that village in ashburn has never. I mean you gotta go back a long time right to win that village last correctly. Aac you baited developed cultivated And stuck with a young quarterback so I gotta factor that in as well. I'm gonna give you all that. And i do think he's gonna get another chance but he whenever he does something bad he says. I'm taking accountability. And i'll try and do better than he doesn't really actually do better to me. There are two teammates from ohio state on that team. I haven't heard them say boy. He got hosed. I haven't heard that. I haven't heard from chase young retirement coin. I haven't heard it. And when they're in the situation they're in with their season and the coach is dealing with his health issues and you just laden egg against seattle and then the prevailing story that week is your social media and wasn't a strip club or wasn't in a strip club and doesn't even matter because you're still violating protocols and we're trying to stick together here and win this division title and we need you the most now and this is what you do. No one's going to come out and defend him. It was over here. That i mean i was reporting is much. It was just over week. Three when he got benched and ask for trade and that kinda sorta tried to trade him but not really Because they still weren't sure about alex this whole thing has been it would have been over by the trade deadline if not for this division being so bad if not for the this this somewhat miraculous situation with alex smith also comes with major caveats If not for you know kyle and getting knocked out for the season but yes. This was the end there. No one was really going to come out and be like we gotta keep this guy around any longer. But i don't know that those sins make him completely untouchable and other buildings. Do you have to do some homework. You need to talk to him either. Talk to people around him You need to get a sense of where his head is at and what. He's really what what how badly he does want this. His his his dedication his willingness to work. I don't know anyone even those in that building. Who least like him as a quarterback. I don't know anyone that thinks he's a bad kid I don't know anyone who thinks he's on a self destructive path. He's just very immature Not that self-aware. And he he he needs to be more of a self starter. Okay i let me move on to something else talking about people who will be different spots next year. What do you make of. Jj watt what do you make of all the things. Jj watt said about the team that he plays for. I mean is there. Is there ever been anybody who basically said. Could you get me out of here right now. More than j. watt. Look i reported before the trade deadline that he badly worn out that He would not. He did not want to return. I finally here in houston. He told a lot of people that you know. I'm staring at my football mortality. I have had a really nice career. you know. A lot of people say historically significant career. I have not played in any historically significant games. I am not at a on a franchise with the franchisor. It looks like it's close to playing any historically significant games at any time. I only have so many more football games in this body. And i only have one more year my deal and i know i might not pass. Something's physicals are some teams would have issues about my health at this stage in my career and weather. I'm worth seventeen or not whatever games i do have left in my career. I don't wanna be playing next december for another five win. Team play for draft pick That's done And i think this was as much as this soliloquy was about. What's going on with that team And how frustrated he is by it. I think it was also release of a lot of what's been inside him. Which is i care so much. People around here don't seem to care as much. This is another wasted season for me. Going nowhere playing for that guy. O'brien who we were never going anywhere under. And now they get rid of him and we we. We still can't win games. They're still all this palace intrigue about who's going to win the fight for kalmyk nares heart and mind and who's going to win the fight. For what coach we bring in and who he's going to have ties to and and who's his guy going to be and it's just not really about being the best franchise we could be win football games and i'm not going to attack the owner but i damn sure i'm gonna shine a light on what's going on in this locker room and this is why i don't wanna be here anymore. This is not professional grade. This needs to be better And i'm near the end. And i'm i'm looking around and i'm looking at the rest of the league. I'm looking at my brother and pittsburgh go into the playoffs. I'm looking at my hometown team. The green bay packers flirting with the one seat got four. winds right. can't can't endear him to his teammates. Cannot they must want him out now. Don't you think. I think everybody in the building new at the trade deadline that this was the ending. That mcnair was going to have to do right by this guy because he was going to make it clear that this was no longer smart for him or the team to have him. You know as one of its highest paid players in the final year of a deal where there wasn't going to be an extension and where he wants to go to a winner and i think you need someone who's given all he's giving her that franchise. I think you need to respect that. And they weren't quite ready to go there at the deadline because it would require the difficult trade to make with the contract with the medical in season with cove restrictions and everything else. But you got six months now before you play real football game again. And and i'll just tell you what i would have told you at. We ate at the trade deadline that he does not have a future in houston and he won't be there in twenty twenty one okay. I'll ask you a question about flexing. The eagles and the washington football team to sunday night. The highest rated show every week is sunday night football about flexing to complete losing teams into that. What do you make of that you know. I think you look at the schedule. And it's one game that you could move to that window and no matter what happens in any of the earlier windows. It's going to decide something. I foresee and just a weird way that this thing is played out this year Boy nothing else. I mean you couldn't be sure with with you. Know is is yeah. Pittsburgh cleveland looked at two weeks ago. But you know by tuesday. Tomlin said what everybody knew he would say. I'm gonna air mail my guys who play offs. Which i i could listen to mike tomlin. I would love to see him. Like say grace at thanksgiving. I could listen to mike. Tomlin read a phone book or not that those exist anymore. He's just the best But he wasn't going to play his guy. So what does that game look like and by halftime buffalo's not really gonna be playing their guys. So what would that look like You know jalen hurts is trying to win over that that job and they've got gotta look. There's plenty to talk about what the eagles with their season. If you're looking for backstories subplots aren't exactly what's happening on the field in washington come on. I mean you've got the quarterback who's not there anymore. You've got the nickname thing you've got ron. Rivera you've got alex smith of this redemptive story And maybe tyler heineke who last we saw him was shot gunning white clause and the xfl or whatever like you know it's not ideal tone. But i think you know rams against cardinals might mean everything might not. it also might be christian. Denver were against john. Wolford like that might be. You're starting quarterbacks. So i just think it was them you know looking at a situation where where we where we guaranteed to have significant playoff factors And while you don't have the cowboys on tv. I mean if they could get zoom anywhere around jerry jones. If he wins his football game you know sitting around watching this one. You get the about the cowboys at least so you know i'll be watching me to. It is by the way. It is pretty amazing to me that without a bubble the nfl season is going all the way through. But it does lead to this. Because of what's happened recently. With cleveland because of what happens in meeting rooms and people don't what happened in denver. I'm going to assume and maybe you will assume as well that when we get to the championship games in the afc and the nfc and then the super bowl. I'm gonna assume a bubble of sorts. Or am i wrong. I think teams will do their individ. I'd make teams will have the latitude to do what they see fit. And the closer you get to that chalice. The more you might be able to get full buy in from you know for a period of you know sick days between the the division title and the and the championship game where people essentially stay in a hotel or you know sort of quarantine to some degree I don't think the league is going to step in and intervene unless they situation you know. demands it I think as the field whittles you know. Everybody who's there still has the ultimate motivation and most teams most coaches most players. Most strength and conditioning guys have adhered to this thing. Pretty pretty you know Vigilantly so. I don't know that it's going to go there. I don't know that it's going to have to go there but obviously look we can have this conversation tomorrow and we could be talking about a completely different than what we see right now. That is the nature of this virus. So nothing is obviously guaranteed plug you radio show for us. You can listen to me meander and pontificate from two to six every afternoon. A lot about the nfl but not solely about the nfl on inside access on one. Oh five seven the fan in baltimore with my co host.

Carville left this show in anticipation of the election. He was proclaimed about the election. Election turned out. Good for him. I would have that cleared. There'll be a we think there'll be a new president on january twentieth and james we expunge james record because he was not. He was not fully into football when he was making picks not fully. In your back what have you got. You must feel good about the election. I feel good about georgia. That's been in my tombo. We'll get out of political realm yet. I got one okay. Okay okay thank are really good at at a seventeen to win the super bowl. I say that i'm home. I admit that remember remember. Remember michael thomas is coming back to the playoffs writer. That and we don't have the best. Receiving elite at least last year was the best. An elite that is going to in would probably kansas city. It was close game. We they'd be thirty to twenty nine druids at best fifty percent. We had no michael thomas. It's gonna change the whole way. That team place going into the playoffs with death running back probably in the league and land at least last year's best receiver. I more if i if i could take either new orleans at tampa bay to win over green bay or kansas city. I what i think. All in the problem. You're gonna have if they have play tampa bay again. They gotta beat him three times in one year. It's hard to eat hard to do. But to the to the ballgames games for now but i. I would really look at the saints at seven. This last i looked at with plus eight hundred fifty dollars which figures out about two hundred seventeen hundred. i think that's a good bet. I in gajah in cincinnati plan. Georges seven point favorite take cincinnati. Judge does not wanna play this game. They don't wanna play. It's a giant disappointment. I noticed that the peach our cycles of a home game but nobody goes to anyway. What the hell different inside. Sokaia ride natty is good on it as good as georgia under ordinary circumstances would probably not but he's not on their circumstances the one. Sec team. i would take is i would take. Am and later eight. Why do i say that. 'cause jimbo is pissed. I hear that he didn't get in. He's angry. He's acted ohio stakes in yup team has something to play ball and he is gonna use that. I don't generally like the fcc and these lessened ballgames because it's a solid happened. The florida bar and a half a lot of people stone laid it but they had plenty of people out. I like tulsa minus two michigan. I intelligence pretty good and again if you mississippi state you've just us more excited about my gang. They got more to prove. I think he's bowl games of two sloppy this year. People are not that interested in them. But if you've got a team that's motivated. I guess it takes us not motivated. I think that goes along with these things. Do you have picks in the in the playoffs. Depiction plans now. I do it. I can get excited about the nfc east. No no no. I mean i mean in the college football playoffs. I mean the alabama game and ohio state game. I'm just going to go with these three. Okay i get. Twenty points is a lot of me. That's a lot of points. i mean. Dog -pecially rated. I really like army. I really want to take on me. But to have the are flawed. Some kind of potential cheating scandal. And just be a terrible distraction just seventeen players on the team that are gonna play at a negative turn out to be lasted. We think that. That'd be a pretty big distraction. So i laid off all miss. You know i'm a big fan. i know. Yeah you've liked to army. An army had a really good year. That's a two loss team. And i had a really good year. Yeah great year. I and i really liked him. But i did. The cheating stuff worries me. You know you got seventeen players that that scared me off of okay all right so how would you. I'm concentrating now. All right before the thing that i like i said i can't i go for three but at least if people follow me to know i thought about it i don't mind i don't mind going for three but what i wanna do is get up ten minutes before and then pull three teams out of my ass. Thank you james. Thank you james. James carville boys and girls and we'll have to make a decision whether or not use that particular exit line which i like so much that i'm going to say yes we're going to do. That's really good. all right. is jeff ma with us or do we have to make a phone call. I think shown is calling as we speak. Okay james was wonderful i. I'm sort of surprised that he didn't pick of college. Football playoff games though. You don't wanna lay all that much. I if if i learned anything last night. I worry about i. now worry about. Alabama because alabama and georgia was a one touchdown game alabama and florida's one touchdown. Game and florida looked inept last night against oklahoma. Really again i'll say this again. Oklahoma may be the best team in the country right now. They lost the first two games and they were eliminated at that. But they're really good and alabama alabama's playing notre dame right. I don't know that they can cover. That's a big number. What's what's the number on the clemson. Game giving seven and a half. I see here just seven and a half on ohio state. Well that's because they figure. Ohio state is motivated because of what happened with dabo sweeney hitting them. Eleven in the last poll eleventh. So the game. That did the james pig texas. A and m. what ballgame is that. Who were they playing. Unc north carolina. Okay that's the capital and orange bowl. Yeah you didn't have to call it the capital one. It's lonzo jeff's with us okay. So we make the smooth transition of jeff ma from the podcast bet the process jeff ma five and one last week eight and three in the last two weeks the big sprint towards the finish the question that overhangs week seventeen particularly with games involving example pittsburgh which is not going even play. It's regulars in buffalo which by the second half may yank the regulars how is there. Is there a method to betting these sorts of games or you just jeff. Stay away from those games. Games are are tough. Because you don't know who's going to play in situations in the teams are are sort of resting players And and you think they may pay maypole players. It's hard to bet either or against the team simply because the market this is not knowledge that nobody knows right like this is already built into the line at some level and how the market and and how market reacts to something like that is better than than you as an individual. Can i think going into you know week. Seventeen there are some interesting narrative that you can look at right. There's these teams in these. You know must win or need to win situations and oftentimes what you'll see. Those games as those teams will get that throughout the week and by the end of the week that narrative that team needs to win has created value on the other side and so betting the other side late in those games tends to be a pretty profitable situation. Because there's a reason that these teams need to win. They're not they're not elite. They're not the best teams There's a reason they're not in the situation where they can rest players so Oftentimes again those teams become overvalued by the market. i think there's like eight or nine games with playoff implications at somebody has to win. And i said this yesterday. It is altogether possible in the. Afc that in eleven and five team will not make the playoffs that would just not make it which is almost unheard of although the patriots. The year that that brady got hurt were eleven and five and did not make the playoffs. If i remember correctly so who do you have for us this week. If i'm working from those teams we're gonna take cincinnati plus thirteen against a baltimore team that you know everyone is as is on board right now But again i think this line will continue to go up. I like cincinnati getting a lot of points right now. It's thirteen but i think it will end up becoming more. Okay i'm gonna take the bears plus the five and a half against the packers. Obviously the packers up looks great last week and generally look like the the best team in the nfc right now But the bears of played really well. down stretch They went from having serve. A dismal quarterback played all of a sudden having a pretty you know pretty reasonable quarterback play with trubisky back in there and This is a game that you know. Both teams obviously need. So i think motivation is equal. Obviously chicago needs a little more Because green bay's trying to lock in that first round bye and homefield but I like chicago getting the points here. Okay what else. Am i san francisco. Plus the six points. I just think san francisco is a team. That's you know again playing hard getting players back. No reason to mail it in this one Getting six points. Here i think is is Is value are on the niners. They showed last week that they're still playing hard And i think they certainly can keep this game within the six points. Okay and then. We're going to go with the eagles plus the one and a half again. Mrs going to be a situation where people are gonna say. Oh they're going to mail it and they're going to quit and i think it's you know a team that is still relatively young quarterback that is young. They're gonna you know they're gonna wanna win this game and we saw last week that Washington has this is having some struggles you know. Obviously they're starting at different quarterback in one that may be a little bit well rested instead of being at a strip club so that they'll be better situation potentially to win this game but you know you're still talking about an undrafted quarterback That that will be starting for them. and i'm just. I'm just not seeing where they should necessarily be favored in this game. Okay another one for us And then finally the giants Plus the three against dallas dallas is a team that everyone is now. Serve on board with Their game last week made everyone thinks that this is you know the elite towns of team that people thought would be you know one of the class near see but Giants you know. Have you know have a very very good defense. i think we'll give dalton some problems and We'll be just need to score. Hopefully daniel jones a bit healthier than he's been in this. This cowboys team can give up some point. So i like the giant plus three year. Do you have any thoughts on the college football playoff games every once in a while you give us one of those this year. I probably should have looked a little bit those to give out. I mean obviously the ball vizier. A little wonky. You don't even know ya. They'll end up getting played i it. It's hard for me not to like both favorites in in the in that game. Because i do think that that you know clemson and bama or a class above both of these teams. I mean i'm a notre dame fan. My my dad came over from china went directly to south bend indiana and And donna masters there. So i would love to see the irs well but but in every situation. They've been in recently when they've played an elite team like this. They've lost and they've lost badly and and i think this is a situation. Unfortunately where alabama is is historically great team And i think notre dame will have. We'll have trouble in this game. So i if if i were to take anything it'd be bama there and then certainly clemson proves it is proving that with the health of they've got me in the first time they played notre dame they had five starters out and ten you know obviously trevor lawrence which is big So now playing against in ohio state team which struggled to score struggled quite a bit against northwestern. team You know. I like clemson also to to cover the seven and a half so i both favorites and then hopefully a a great national championship game. I won't hold you to those picks. I mean i'm not gonna put them down but i just wondered if you had a particular thought about that. The thing i had said earlier is when. I saw florida last night. And they were so close to alabama in the sec championship game. It gave me reason to think that maybe alabama wouldn't cover. Kazadi is such a big number with notre dame. It's like i said if if if the big number you know the florida. I i heard you saying your thoughts on oklahoma. Oklahoma was is is a is a really good team and thing. That was different about them this year than any of the former lincoln riley teams is how good their defense was And that was an interesting game. Because florida opened his favorite and ended. I think has like a touchdown. Underdog or something like that. So it you know. There was a lot of momentum on oklahoma at the at the end of this of the season was thank you. Jeff thank you. We'll talk to you next week. Okay thanks starting jeff mob boys and girls his podcast with rufus peabody. Who apparently everybody who listens to this show went to school with went to high school with is called. Bet the process jeff. Mas dad picked up a degree at notre dame. That's cool that's interesting information that has nothing to do with him being a water polo player of course but Wonder if his dad played water polo and china wonder if they have order water polo over the world. Because well they have it all over the world because it's an olympic sports been olympic sport forever so they obviously have it all right. We'll take a break.

"Code Uncle Benny"

The Tony Kornheiser Show

59:20 min | 1 year ago

"Code Uncle Benny"

"Previously on the Tony. Kornheiser show. Speaking of interviews, there's an interview of Chris Eliza in Connecticut magazine. It's. Lengthy, it's mostly a question and answer how do you. How do you feel about the article? I. Mean. As a reporter I. Trust other reporters you know and they're like. Wait a friendly about. That always feel. Tony, Kornheiser show is on. Now when last we left Chris Cillizza, he was bemoaning the nationals grounds, crews inability to cover the field last night resulting in a suspension of days and days and days makes no sense a saver ship because it keeps the orioles from sweeping them and probably keeps the beltway, Mitterrand, Sean doolittle on the team. I would vote if it's my vote. I vote him off the island. Absolutely is awful. He's awful. This year he's got one out pitch. It's a strike if you lay off at, he's forced to come lower into the zone. Zone like alcohol count weight, and then whom drive it and then boom, and then he's done. So whatever however good. He was last year and he was very, very good. He is equally bad at the moment. The Nets are worse at the moment I don't want to get to local. There are some news stories and we will have Michael Wilbon on to talk to them beyond the Golf Michael and I will talk about the golf now, but the two larger news stories in sports at the moment are it appears now that college football is on the. The brink of saying no that the power five conferences are going to say I don't know that we can do it I'm not sure that we can do it. Maybe we can push through the spring that sort of up in the air, but that is certainly in play and the other story is the Astros went out yesterday and hit four different I. think it was four different Oakland players and you say the Astros, why would they hit people? They're the ones being hit. Well, that's the team of Mike Fires and Mike Fires. Is the Astros. Public. Enemy. Enemy number one for doing what for telling the truth about what happened with the Astros, and so there was a bench clearing Bra. I? Mean I get all of that I? Don't think the Astros will hit I. Don't know how you feel Michael I. Don't think the Astros hit another person all year outside of Oakland person or even Oakland personnel. Yeah. This. This is just an extension of what we saw through the late winter where baseball doesn't do anything and now baseball players who have been doing this for I. Don't know one hundred. Plus, years action. Do this is what they do. These are the unwritten rules of baseball that everybody who plays baseball understand. So let us get to the largest sporting event yesterday and the largest sporting event to this point. Since the corona virus reared up, and that was the PGA Championship, which is normally not the first of the championships normally is referred to by the CBS crew as glories. Last shot has been fourth and least relevant for a long period of time and I'M NOT GONNA? Not. GonNa, declare its relevance, but it was a great tournament in the sense that nobody ran away with it ever, and at one point yesterday though like seven eight people on the bats. Nine, on the back nine tied at minus ten for the lead in a major championship. What were your thoughts about the first thing you have to consider where this tournament was held in? This is just outside of the city limits of San Francisco or what you'd consider to be the downtown city limits, and you look at what was a huge outbreak earlier in the spring and he just kept wondering, how are they going to play this tournament here? Unfortunately, the way the four majors stacked up three of them happened to be. Right around virus. Epicenter Post through the euro early summer late spring timetable. He wondered they just can't get this done. So the fact that they were able to hold this tournament and I don't know about you. But I was surprised to see the amount of people on the grounds. It didn't just seem to talk to each other media just seem like people who are clapping yakking video maybe. Yeah. The. The lines are a little bit blurred, but there's definitely more that you did see the people who live just outside or outside of the walls cheering on more going go bears and all these a cal kid cal golden bears, US Sandy about this last week, which was, what would your feelings be if you could only win the PGA? Where does that rank and so much of it? It comes back to where where's it held, and then what does the tournament turn out to be. So if you go back to someone like Davis, love who wins a PGA at winged foot and what that meant around his career and family all of a sudden. That's very meaningful. Memorable Tournament. If you think about this one, the way they call him more Cala wins it on the. The back nine and who was against and where it was within the new cycle of our of our times are. Now this is going to be one of those memorable. PJ's it to of two shots that would be considered great in anybody's standard of great one was a chip on fourteen that gave him the lead for the first time and made those of us, sitting. Together and watching it say, well, I. Wonder if that won the tournament and then he won the tournament, he backed it up with the drive on a drivable two, hundred, ninety, four yard. Not drivable me driveable for pro. Golfers. Two, hundred, ninety, four, yard, par four sixteen that was on the right side. If it bounces, right, it's going into a trap at Tong shortsighted. It took left bounce and roll with a with an eight feet. He did not have to make the Eagle. Birdie is conceded and then he's up by two, but he makes the Eagle in these up by three at that point and the tournament is over and this kid and and we'll talk to chuck twenty three. there. Are Three kids out there. Matthew Wolf. There's Victor. Colin, more cal. They have all one already on the PGA. Tour, and this is the first major. This is only the second major. This kid played in any one and he looked terrific. His problem has been in the past. It's a recent pass because he's a kid problem has been putting. I don't know if Michael is putting. In basketball, you can get to be a better shooter. Shootings important, you can learn to shoot. In Golf, can you get to be a better putter? You can always improve, but you can't necessarily be a good putter. So Phil Mickelson is a great example of this late in his career. Most people start losing their touch on the Greens. He's always had that short game. He made himself a better putter, and if you look at Morakot with a thing, you always notice he stands over the ball along laws now traditionally. Someone who is such? A Good Ball striker tends to have a weakness may be on the Greens. You see this with rory and it's why someone like rory can ride those waves and Morikawa. You have to come back to that because it's the missed three and a half foot or to extend the playoff in the first event after the restart, and then you can. You see where he then went. He improved it. He then get set huge playoff victory over Justin. He had a twenty one footer yet to validate. Yeah. Birdie. After Thomas dropped. Fifty Sixty fifty footer so we'll call government Kornheiser sure those two shots on the back nine. We were talking Nigel before this casual Gulf in to get someone like camp to stay juiced over Major, you have to have what what order these almost tiger woods like shots about a month ago. Everyone was talking about how this kid has one now more times than he has missed cuts and you look at that chip in on fourteen that becomes the tournament changing. Yanni. Look at the drive followed up by the Eagle that becomes career defining and career changing, and it's It's just amazing to see how quickly these young players are not just winning, but contending every single week in part of his there, the crop of players who they're playing every single week. They can now and even saw with mad wolf who made a late run and had a couple of had the league that's tied for the lead, a couple, three, two, three three, but you can see how quickly they are able to change the scope of tournament. But it comes back to set up that driveable par four Paul. Casey said this in his comments after credit to the PJ of America for creating these dramatic moments in major championships. So we have a situation for those people who do like golf. We have a situation where in a period of time that feels like a blink of an eye eight majors will be played. I mean we're going to have four. Well No, we're not going to have the British open where eleven months. Yeah. We will have the US Open and we will have the masters in November, and then we will have the masters in Astra's back to back and months. You could. If you won two masters in a row, people would forget about Colin Miracle Winning this unless he wins the master's, but the master's is is a different thing. A different type of player is put in play at the masters. This was. This was fun to watch what I don't know. And Nigel. I don't really know if if you saw this when they went to break, they often showed that beautiful shot of the fog in San Francisco and then the skyline of San Francisco behind that, which is you know of the skylines in America New, York and San Francisco are the most famous and the most. Revered and evocative, and I don't know if that was ever alive shot except the first time and I. Don't know if they kept going back to it, but it was unknowingly effective. Think it was as Feerick, and when you think about that fog, we still have that marine layer. Listing over all of us and to have this tournament going on underneath that in to try and do it in the safest way. Possible. Did mean something I think it's impossible before you get out of this to not mention the other big story was Shambo to. Shambo. In terms of people out win if you're looking at the leader board after fifty four holes and you see the look in. And just the disdain in his voice as he was talking about Dj, you thought Okay Justin Johnston is. Relevant guide, Dustin. Johnson. Who was he? How many is he wants? To, win the second and Kudos to Roy for backing up saying. Just. To clear this up, DJ's a great player. In one, you have to be held a player, but he has twenty one tour victories, which is roughly three times what you have. And Jessica was a non factor after the first. He misses probably a fifteen eighteen footer for Birdie and he doesn't even make the telecast. I just spilled my water I o Paulo. Is trying to save this. I was going to go deep into dive, opened a bottle of water and spilled it all over my know. Ruining the ruining the ink, and now those needle notes, what are you going to ask Chuck leaving me? Adrift. To all I could ask chuck his. Birthday at least. The salad dressing like you do on your shorts. I have this problem with shorts that I have that I tend to. I'm not the world's sloppiest eater, but I'm not the neatest heater. As either figure. You'd over sink know and I spill salad dressing on shorts, which is impossible to get out and I put on a pair of shorts and I've washed and I've tried them and I've ironed and they looked Tara ever apply the heat. So I've tried to do the old trick with him. So before you do anything before you wash it, apply some of that, you know the heavy duty palmolive. Droplets it and let it sit to work we. Don't word droplets lately. Droplets. When he's talking about salad dressing, we're talking about the old school, Paul Newman Paul Newman. It goes everywhere. Yeah. Paul. Newman's salad dressing classic Italian Olive Oil. is every doesn't everybody use that am I the only one. I can't even if they don't, they should. That's clearly the best salad German I have I have so many memories as a kid where you'd have those wooden salad bowls the slowly you wouldn't let us wash it because I thought the oil seasoned it. Yes. That's what I was told when I was. One third of your age and bought. Those I've had I've had wooden. Yeah. I have them, but they're not in in the House I. Don't know where they are. I don't know where really anything is. And I'm I'm really upset that I spilled everything. I'm really upset. All right. We'll take a break. We will come back.

The answer to our prayers are song for the new Seattle cracking of the NHL Best Dan bug both will want an I hate that name. Mike, you hate the name don't you. It. Terrible. It's truly terrible. It's an invented nonsensical awful name just so stupid. Michael Wilbon joins us. There's there's a lot of things before we get to the golf I, do want to get to two stories that have bubbled up. That are big stories and one and you and I've talked about this. At length. That I think that the big ten me personally I think the big ten is the best academic and athletic, conference overall. Maybe I'm wrong. I've always thought that and I always thought that if there was one conference that would be the first to say, I don't know about football. I'm not sure we can do this to our students. I thought it'd be the big ten. Now there seems to be a boomlet going on Mike with a lot of conferences meeting and may be getting to that same conclusion. What are your thoughts? Well, they met they. They had a conference yesterday. I. Think it was big ten presidents. they did while they didn't decide anything Tony. I expect to see I. Expect College football to be canceled this week. postponed. Yes. This season to be moved digger attempt to move into the spring. And I'm fine with that attempt. I'm fine with it. I. Don't think it's realistic. You're not GonNa, keep college students away from each other. And we're talking about the entire community. And in most you talking about the big ten, so the big ten has. I'M GONNA say two of the four largest. School populations in America. Minister no Minnesota Okay and. I I would say that I was that that that Arizona State has got to be one of those biggest. But Minnesota's got to be one of them and then and then Penn state. No. How state we got three of them. Yeah. So. I I don't see it. I think I think the wants the big ten does that then effectively even the SEC we'll have to go along with that I think you're looking at a season can be postponed with the next forty eight hours, and maybe a lot less than that. I suspect that the SEC will hold out as long longer than anyone in as long as it can. But if all the other power five conferences go they're going to. To go to I, think if one goes they have at the big Tangos they have to. That's the cannot you know they? They're not going to be able to hold out in in this case I don't think. Tony. Now, this is different than we should point out. It is utterly different than the NFL where payers are played and these different decisions. These are these kids are not paid. Don't tell me about the scholarships they're not paid or not it. Is already looking the NC double. A. is already in a position to look like just a clown. to the point where I think the NCW is on the verge of extinction. Anyway. and. So. They. They're gonNA make these kids. Really. GonNa. Make kids play when you. When you just look at the world we're in right now, I don't think so i. Told you these zero chance to zero. Now, I mean I, before I was saying five, ten, percent zero, I think. It could be called. Today now I think that's possible. The other stories that caught my eye. And I'M NOT GONNA. Say It surprised me because Mike Fires is a member of the Oakland Athletics and he blew the whistle on Houston where he played. But the astros hit I think four different Oakland guys, and finally there was a brawl and I was saying before you got on the air. I. Didn't I. Don't think the Astros will hit anybody again and I don't think they'll even hit Oakland again. But I think this was this was a message to Oakland that this is what you did to us and we hate your guts. Did you sense that same thing? Now, I didn't think of it that way. That, you leave out that way. It makes sense I don't. I the whole Astros thing I'm just tired of it. I'm tired of them. I don't pay attention to it. It's like. I'm never going to some other episodes only in recent history where. You understand the layers of you understand that something's going to happen here's what's going to happen, and then I I just I to now I've tuned out to the Astros. Would for me? I tuned out baseball this weekend. Take out. Because my team is not even playing right and you had this, you had this last week. Yes. Yes. And Baseball because my team is better when it doesn't play. Teams. Play 'cause. Three but it doesn't make. After I tuned out baseball this week, which is scheduled for the cardinals this week. Yes and. Two days game canceled as well. Squats. Today. They win a new. Week. They're not eligible. Are you are you? Are you more or less confident that baseball will finish whatever. Scott. Goes back. The bus are only both are only said, two weeks before as well. Alternately did start that he gave a five percent chance of finishing five percent. that. May Have Been Strong I. Mean bustard knows what he's talking about. Baseball tweaks covers. And he looked like he was right. So I don't know how you just you can't. You can't do this every week, but but that's happening every week every week. There's like. Can't play how long can you have this? So let me let me ask you a different question, this feelings question and I ask you this. The, position you were in. you waited as a cubs fan. You actually waited your entire life for the cubs to win a world series, which is different than in Washington. You waited literally your entire life. The next year when the cubs were not as good. When the cubs had failures, they were still a good team, but they were not as Elsia Lcs, right? So I'm looking. Might my disappointment level in the nats and I understand is just two weeks is just enormous. I feel. Terrible that they? You know it looks to me. They repeat they. They just looked very bad right now when when the cubs were not what they were, how did you feel in those moments where you satisfied that you had won the world series or was that in the past and you and you cared only about the moment both you? Of course, I was satisfied a world series cut at waves almost sixty years. but and it was the way it happened. You know the way they want it. I was there for it. and I understood I thought they had a shot to win. They did because they got lcs again, they got their three straight years. So, it wasn't quite like this. There wasn't I mean, they had a chance, they beat the nationals. In the playoffs they I remember we lost, we lost the dodgers. And We'd beating the dodgers that before we beating the dodgers and the giants the year before. So he played them, didn't beat him. Okay. We were in there. You know, and we didn't have the first of all Tony, your disappointment starts with the way. The Dash don't even get to defend in a real way. No, they don't know. They don't have the glory of you know coming out that next season having everybody line up on the. On the on the foul line and introducing introduced when entire stadium and they didn't get the applause that they should have no snow. What's going on? That I had that full thing in the cubs were relevant for three still relevant. But it was disappointing last year because they just fell apart a little bit. But then they come out this year with the same nucleus and they jump off to the best start in the national. League. So it wasn't like. The, what's happening to the nationals right now? I. Would that would just kill me is that awful? My team is reigning champions and you don't get to act like it or be treated like it and you can't get. You can't beat the Orioles. You can't. There's not a season just not. My disappointment is more honestly profound than I thought, it would be. I don't get it because this is what we have this. No just. About the business of being. Of defending. That's right. Defending and being it being being called it every day. Feeling like he's got the defending champions and they're still good. So. You know I i. do feel for for Washingtonians that in that sense absolutely Tony Let's get to the Gulf. There's nothing good on television if you like golf as west coast majors because you get watch him until ten o'clock at night I mean you get to you get to sit in your house when it's too dark to go out and do anything and you get to watch television, you get to watch the golf. What did you think of the major? Are you? Okay with the result? What did you think of all of it? I'm more than, okay. With the result I'm thrilled with result thrilled. I sat and watched a lot of Post Game with more Collin and what impressive kid? He is not doing kid. Like the youngest guy, the only other guys who've won at that stage, we're Jack Tiger. Forget who the? Story Rory the fourth. It was great and field. He held off look telling. I don't mind history of golf is not as deep. History of baseball which I go, I, go back to when I was four years ago, nineteen, sixty, two with baseball and understanding. Feeling it with golf I have become. Appreciative. Of History and I can recite it. But I didn't feel it. I didn't like I. Didn't grow up watching Jack Arnie which old enough to have done I. watched it. I watched the kind that I was in the most of the involved. I'm saying that to say that the field is out there now. Man. The field is impressive. Yeah. These guys can win. They can beat you like. So when Tiger I had his, you know. Go walkaway issues in two, thousand, nine, ten eleven. I was just about depressed about sport. I was depressed about a sport. 'cause Phil couldn't carry that himself. Phil Phil did find anyone. Didn't you when the US Open but he fine? Tagger wasn't there and it was disappointing. It was disappointing. I'm not. I mean this is not to say that one other terrific offers out there, but it wasn't the same Tony. And it he wasn't the same it was lacking. It Ain't lacking. I. Didn't think about Tiger one time yesterday I watched tiger the whole weekend. They had the special groups. All you could go and watch it on ESPN, plus if you wanted to I, did not do that. I watch tiger and Phil. I. Rooted for them and then it was like, okay. That was nice. You guys. You guys have have a safe flight home. 'CAUSE now, the big stage doesn't include them mostly not entirely mostly. And it's okay because these do to good and they're good in a way that, I. I know when speed at the stage for himself for about two and a half years. Aurora had the state from. It wasn't as good. Those guys. One of Rory's part of it now, but it's not the same as more power and Chan Cameron Champion, Cameron Champ and Matthew Wolf and and still you gotta transition. Team you got Jason Day, you've got Paul. Casey. You've got guys who were established stars who are out there playing well. You got fee now who still young you got guys in their twenties, a whole slew of them and their great. Now. And man this, I didn't want anybody I'd miss, anybody I just I. Loved it. and. So even somebody who understands that my golf was defined by the end of Nicholas and Norman and all that and the beginning of Tiger and savvy and his prime. All that. Nick price and. Faldo. Fine Fine. Those guys are hall of Famers by the way. But the pack. The pack of guys, and maybe you don't feel as maybe they're going to be in and don't telling me I'm not I'm not a prisoner of the moment. I'm just not. Because I believe often stuff that happened forty years ago is better. It's yeah. No I. I. Think. There's a lot of really good players. I think if you go now Phil Mickelson was in his. Almost into his mid thirties before he won a major, he won five. If you take like age thirty, three n down, we have some great talent out there because Justin Thomas is part of that. Yes. Some great great town that I will ask you this because I know you have called a Bryce into Shambo villainous, were you more or less impressed with how he went about his business in this major because he came close. No. No. No I mean you, you could be the. He could people talk about the new Greg, norman he could be that. No I wasn't. This was this was his sixty six on Sunday. Pretty good. Okay, how many times was great on the weekend? He didn't win he north North got knocked out with some punches that were all timers. Yup, okay. So not Shambo had no. No, because this is not A. This is a golf course. Tony. Yesterday. He could have had he. He had about four or five chances. To be more college, they had to make shots and make putts and and put himself in establish himself, and no, he didn't and I think the field because I called him villainous Tony, cause, I, look I I live partially one golf course community. One Golf. Community. And I know people on tour. I don't. I'm not saying I know them well, I. I'm around enough. Guys on tour and talk to enough people in the golf industry. Currently to know that he is disliked. Now. He is damn good. He's also disliked. Is this fact not me talking about my feelings because I didn't even know about this stuff until about a month or so ago? Mostly. and. Tony Patrick Reid is like Santa Claus compared to this guy. The way players. The industry feels Pilon. Now, you can only feel that way if somebody's damn good a threat to win every week and Bryson de Shambo is that. Good, he's he's. Impressed with him yesterday. No, no. I wasn't I. Did. There were other guys. There were certainly the other guns Tony. Mean Matthew, Wolf is twenty two. Just turned twenty, three, I. Think Twenty, three, I, mean I mean you know these guys are all? So when the day started, you thought. Okay. Well, let's see what happens. I mean the the the one that blew up yesterday, the shocker kept. Kept. Kept Him I. Mean, I thought Dustin Johnson played well enough in the lead to win. Did. He was fine. He was fine. Tournament was not. We have seen tournaments lost this tournament was won. Was One contested. Young Young, Dude. That's what haymakers that's okay. Because was, but I'm saying people didn't people didn't backup kept backed up the rest of them were under part. That's right. They were under par. Even guys that you. You know. I know you're waiting to see what happens. Tony. Female Twenty. Feet played well enough on. Sunday, finally played well, and he did not did seventy three. He didn't know he did he not. Ricky Fowler didn't shoot seventy-three because he missed the cut. Yeah. That's Tony, you can be a young darling and Rickie Fowler is that and by legitimately. So you can be that and now just get just get back backhanded you can you can. I I. Loved it. Good. All right. I'll talk to you later. Thank you, Michael Wilbon boys and girls. We will take a break and we will come back. Chuck. Colpepper. Who covered the tournament for the Washington Post will join us when we return I'm telling me corn. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. This is a song called keep moving. Nia levonne is on vocals. Stephen Harley has written and arranged and produced. and.

How do they do send us your music by emailing it to Jingles at Tony Kornheiser. Show DOT, com chuck colpepper joins us now he covered. This tournament, and there's just there are a million questions Michael and I watched so much of this tournament. But let let me get to some of the otter questions before we tackle Morikawa and to Shambo and the implosion of Brooks Kepco. And as we were watching it chuck there seemed to be cheers every once in a while there seemed to be more people than we're used to. In these golf tournaments. They're almost seemed to be like a small crowd who were those people. There's There's volunteers, there's the guest, the players allowed. There's a coach. Sometimes, there's. There's that kind of walk. Welcome them sometimes. I think who are yeah. Who aren't you? Yeah. I remember in It's it was it was just about the same as. The other two terms. I've been to the memorial in. Ohio and the Schwab in Fort Worth. and. You know maybe. The at the end there. Say at the end of the Fort Worth, tournament, there were seventy three people beside the green I counted them. Think it was, and then it was about the same yesterday. Sometimes those noises you heard through the TV where from people who are outside the fences on the sidewalk looking through little gaps in these tarps in the fences watching, there's a long rows of them on some of the holes. So what what, what? I noticed, this is the first time I noticed this when a guy hit a good shot, he would wave in acknowledgement to the clapping and I guess you know that was a little bit new for me this year. But it seemed like they were a bunch of people. They're meant most of whom, if not, all of them were wearing masks, but they were not all. They didn't appear to all be officials, right? They just didn't. Right right. There's there's. There's they are PG officials, and as I said, volunteers and. Marshall's and There's. There's a lot of. Carts, their carts driving everywhere. Maybe wonder, this is the same amount of carts. That are always there, but we don't know it 'cause they're surrounded by people and trying to get around or just. You almost get run over a lot out there. Just right by the carts arts, the status symbols that these events. Yeah. If you've got your own car and cart and you're like a stood, you're an important person. Let me use a word that I have been very reluctant to use in other sports. But I'M GONNA use it now for golf just on what I've seen lately. There seems to now be a confidence that golf is GonNa, go that these majors, the remaining two are going to be played I mean I, get that sense that there's confidence. D You get that sense I do that like it's the entire feeling around it that it's working and that. Actually there doesn't seem to be any question at all that it's going to happen. You know we got tiger. And Phil yesterday talking about How they're going to prepare for wing foot in the middle of September and US Open. And it seems. Clear I didn't hear a peep of a doubt, the entire time. Do. You think it's the outdoor quality of golf. That, the ability to have a certain amount of distance that gives them this confidence or do you think it's no, we've we've played five or six tournaments. We're good. We know how to handle it. We have our protocols were good. I. Think it's. The. Latter one and maybe the latter one. Oh, something to the. Former one because you know, we're still learning how? How, the virus moves around and so on and I. But. I. Just get sensitive. It's confidence born of the you know the week to grind now of the tour this has been going on for since the. Early to mid part of June and it's gone well. So my son and I were talking about this about the US in being played in winged foot and Michael. You had that question about the influence of the Shambo on of course like that. If you just look at the leaderboard and looked at how distance played into the shaping of the leader board after the opening two rounds. Wing Foot. Excuse me could be at the just at the. At the forefront of this question, if if it set up where guys like dissemble can just carry corners and all of a sudden, they're saying the rough did not actually deter good scores. They didn't necessarily get away with birdies. They had to settle for Pars now, foot is more weld defended on the green with the contours and around the Greens. But if you're the US J. looking at how much distance played into that I, think you're a little bit worried. If you have say I don't know a dry spell in New York where you can't get the rough exactly where you wanted in six weeks. What do you think chuck? I think. I. Think absolutely I think and I think that's Why when Thursday happened at this course harding park out here and? I thought it was going to get mauled the whole time and around that, it didn't. The reasons why kind of varied Not Quite sure. If A. CONCISE EXPLANATION FOR FOR WHY The course held its own. You know as a as it went along. But you know I, think Yeah I think that's that could be a big concern there. Is the. Shambo. Feared by the PGA, the rise of someone like this, who may give rise to others like this? Does that put fear in their hearts? I don't. So because he's I think he's from what I can tell. Hard to tell with no galleries, but it seems to me like he's a guy who? Gets clicks for lack, of a better terminology. I'm just it just seems like he's the guy who You know who? Who Draws attention and they. They need that. So I think that there's a mix there. Maybe you would be. Maybe, it'd be worried about it. You know from a standpoint of. Of. Kind of blunting the game in some way, of course, in a big way. But. I think also, you know there there's the aspect where. He's popular. He's popular in a very American way. You know we like the we like to be dazzled. Will on? Hates? Him? Blind. People Awesome. People, love to hate watch him. Yeah, and the PJ's in the business of selling the professionals golf game. So they're gonNA like that. The US J. might be the group. That's that fearsome in terms of just devaluing skill. There was yesterday on the back nine of a major at one point. They were like seven people tied at the top. It was really crowded from a professional point of view. How do you do you sit in a room and watch that on television as opposed to try to follow somebody because there's ninety things happening in a very short period of time? That's right. There's A. I have this the fortieth major I've gone to and I, had A. I still have a big guilt about that. That on Sunday you have to sit in there in the tent and watch it on TV. I. Went to one. One time where it was the one mark, Calcavecchia one at Troon in Scotland and he? He made this chip in and it was before the Youtube days and I've still I was out following somebody else. Norman maybe, and I still never seen the chip in and maybe I should look at it some time on the on thing you know it's all these years later. I've never seen had to describe it. But I only through his words, you know if you go out there and follow somebody, you're gonNa miss something else. So there's only the way to do it. Yeah. The greatest. The greatest of all time Dan Jenkins said I look I can walk on Thursday, but you know this is my seat on Sunday. You're in. It was good enough for Dan was good. Enough February by the way and I. This is GonNa Sound a little bit dramatic. But Brooks. Koepka. Was a non factor yesterday. He went backwards. He's the only one of the real contenders who went backwards. Is this the end of the Brooks, kept them the Thala Judy? I don't think so but boy I was. I was completely shocked by that. It was the last thing I would've thought to come out of that day and you know. You, you follow it on Saturday night. The comments he made about stuff Johnson. Yeah? needling thing. I love that stuff I think it adds to the game I think if you want to. Do that I. Thought. It was. Playful in a way in a slight way and but also gamesmanship. So. I, I really liked. Within Two to follow that up with that with was really stunning. Because here's a guy who you know. He's. He's held off. Tiger when the crowds were roaring for him in Saint Louis and twenty, eighteen dj when the crowds were growing for him bethpage in twenty nineteen, he's He's shown some real spine. So for him to go out and shoot, I believe the second worst around played. Yesterday that was stunning style if put since those. Holds against those big names in the crowds. You also have dunking it a number twelve. Augusta when it looked like it was his in. The final seven holes, right? That's right. He put it in the water to other is put in the water and tiger, did not put it in the water. More cal, obviously. Obviously, the drive on sixteen is huge, but the chip in on fourteen when Michael and I were sitting here, Michael, you said to me. Do you think he won the tournament? Right? Then I mean, what did you think? Chuck? I thought the chip in on fourteen. The way it looked was what's dropped me, it looked like. He has a look at that does remind me a little bit of Tiger how he expects these impossible shots to go in and he he was not surprised. He didn't leap he the way he looked after it went in, just looked like all along that he had. He had sort of mapped it out that way and thought it was. You, know plausible possible to do that that he's he has really. Just compelled me with with the way he walks around the course since I first started following him. Little nobody's following all that long. But you months ago and I'm yeah, I. Thought that. That chip in because as you were called, the approach was was really insufficient, right before that it was. It was kind of it kind of decide and so two, follow it up with this verdy. When we think you know maybe he's in danger of a bogey here. and just the way he looked like. Yeah. Yeah. There was a chance that was going to go in. What did the pros think of the course because it looked like whatever else you wanted to say about it, the Greens were receptive to a lot of long putts I. Mean it didn't it did. It was not Augusta Greens right I mean. Did they like the course? Did they not like the course? Did they think it was worthy of major? I got the sense, they adored the course and that it was. Definitely in the category firmly in the category of where the major. When. You ask that? I. Think of what Paul Casey said about the sixteenth hole. He said, I, love. There's. That the course has gives us a whole like that where there's a chance for somebody to do something like more college did with driving the Green. You know it's and that it's in that position, you know that the whole is in that crucial position in the day and. And he I think they really liked the way that it was. Set Up, they really liked and I. Think, it was Mickelson call it a really underrated golf course you know among the. Sort of the San Francisco having Olympic, which has had the US Open. And then? Just down the way. So yeah, I, think they. I think they sometimes, you can tell when they're just trying to get. You know to make the good pr comment or you know I think they were few sip about. Nicholson, by the way on. TV on Saturday was better than anybody on TV in the last twenty and Faldo knew it. WHO's just to fill try sean that swing. Me Just. So obvious that Phil Mickelson wanted to do that how good he would be. I'll get you out of here on this. Wilpon and I are paid to make great broad sweeping generalities with passion that we don't believe in it all and we'll blonde as now there's a generational shift, but if you look at Hofland and if you look at Wolf and if you look at more cow and other guys who are still in their twenties albeit late twenty s, it does feel like generation Lee something is happening. Do you do you see it that way? Absolutely, there. There was that time when. Four guys were at ten under four, nine, hundred, and four, eight under and I think eight of them were between twenty, one and twenty, six, eight of the twelve. Yeah I think and. was was curious about what will said, he said he thinks he's twenty one played it Oklahoma state from southern California, but. That he thinks the caliber of the amateur golf now is just so elevated that people just arrive. as D. Shambles set of Morikawa. They they arrive ready to win. They're already ready to win. Yeah I mean more Cowan and I haven't said this out. Loud Soul. Say Out. Loud. He shot sixty four on a Sunday and made do spectacular shots on the back nine on Sunday like praise to him. Right. Right at. At a time when somebody was going to have to do something like that to get out of that log jam and who was it going to be in? You know who was going to do something that was bold and that was going to To enable him to elude that whole thicket there when the seven guys were tied at ten under it. So deeply impressive. The whole thing. That's what I thought too. Thanks, and thanks for doing this on. Very little sleep I. appreciate it. We'll talk to you soon. Thank you. Of course anytime. Okay.

"The Yellows and the Greens"

"Previously. The Tony Kornheiser show. So I can't play you walk the course. So cold and. At seven twenty two supposed to be a gorgeous day here in the mid. Atlantic by the second hold, it starts to rain. Yeah. By the time we got the Snack Bar eight dad has left the golf course he picks up on the back nine and he has a towel three Norman. SHAWL. Yeah. Yeah. Breyer Shell is he's wandering the rough. Waving hello to maintenance. Is General George Washington and you're listening to the Tony Kornheiser. So we have. Actual sports to talk about today, and we can lead the show in the way that we used to lead the show absent. Who would sit here? But Michael Kornheiser is here six feet away socially distanced properly. AD Uncle Denny's table uncle benny still being the CODA Johnny Oh for those people who want to shop and get a discount and I'm going to start just with a couple of emails. And then get into the sports is from Mike O'Brien from Boston formerly, Rivera. My girlfriend and I watched the last segment of PTI tonight and she asked what was wrong or the old guy with the old man hat sound I said, well, there hasn't been a problem with it until the last couple of days that it's the cable company, which is comcast the equipment or ESPN's full basically on an IPAD, the Tracy has to throw together because the equipment he usually uses is from Zorro and it's spelled as easy you. Are Oh, it doesn't Work Daryl from comcast came over to his house but don't worry had gloves and masks on and said everything is okay on comcast in but hopefully somebody will come by from zero today. Don't worry his face swollen just because he has to be so close to the IPAD sale I don't think my girlfriend got all this information because she just walked out of the apartment mid Explanation During Perfect Nation and Zorro won't come. Zero is so confident that their equipment is perfect that they don't feel the need to come over and check the equipment gotta respect the confidence Yeah. Okay. So we're on the IPAD again yesterday, which is disastrous but surely tracy or taking care of this. Well, it's no, there's nothing. No, we're not. We don't know what's wrong. Yesterday I went to sit down at four, twenty three and at four, twenty, five, the camera went out just went out. What are you going to do? Well, what are you going to do is you're gonNA use the IPADS. So thank. God. Tracy. was here also. Our best wishes to Steve Toss who is going to undergo some surgery today and who said to his grandson? who asked, what is grandson settle? What are you going to do? He said in this is a quote no different than any other day listening to Tony of course I will listen to Tony's podcast till I pass out. Well, there you go. That's really good. That makes me happen Steve Tusk. Good luck. Sports. There's local sports and there's national sports today the local sports I will be rather quick with the Washington capitals after firing todd ridden who was their number one assistant under buried trots and two years in a row got to the playoffs but failed to win. They fired him. That's pretty quick. Look on a guy who got to the playoffs twice. But they went out in the first round two times and in hockey hockey's crazy that they fire people five days before the playoffs start when you're in the playoffs. Crazy, Lou Morello fires everybody all the time and always wins executive of the year the Vegas Golden Knights. The most successful franchise ever in terms of expansion got to the finals. The first year got to the playoffs. Last year were on their way to the playoffs this year fire Gerard Gallant after about fifty games fired him put this Guy Peter Deboer just that's what they do. Well, the capital's hired. Peter Lavi lead and if I'm not mistaken and Nigel you a little bit more about hockey than I. Do Peter Latvia lead at one point was on the United States Olympic team or maybe even coachee United States Olympic team but I think it was older player on the United States Olympic team in Lillehammer I believe that's true but Peter La let has coached five six seven teams for four five six. Years each time and Peter Lavi lead has won the Stanley Cup. I think he want with Carolina. They never had a guy won the Stanley Cup before and I think it's a good higher right Michael. It seems like a good higher. Sure. No nonsense guide that ought to work well and ticket any of the Cat Davies Guy Walked staved off A. Limitation Double Ot last night last night, and is still active took over a team that hadn't made the playoffs a while and buried trots and beat the capitals and I think that that resonated badly on todd weird. I think people said probably a traitor something crazy like that lead is a good higher. I watched the nats last night till my head exploded. They're terrible. They may be and I'm not saying this for laughs. They may be the worst. This may be the worst season ever. By. A team that won the world series the year before. It may be the worst ever. They are in danger of being the worst team in the National League. By record they're in danger of that, and the worst is if you watch which we do and I have to admit I actually I turned away last night middle the game. This is not one of those nineteen thirty one. If you gave them another sixty games academic stink no big dig an even bigger deeper hole this offense. Takes every single pitch. Okay. They have people who don't belong in the majors keep them had a bunch of hits last night but I'm not sure he belongs to the majors. Garcia's belong in the majors. I'm not sure roadway still, but he's a great fielder. He strikes out all the time and he strikes out looking so often. You know. Eric. Themes he's useless. He's a a sunk cost. Yeah Annabelle Sanchez at this point he can't pitch in the majors anymore. It's over and he was wonderful pitcher for a long time. They're terrible. No hitter deepen the. Beltway Mitterrand wants to come back with this squad next year. If I get the deciding vote, it's going to be no. Just going to be no. Now, let me get to the most exciting stuff, which is the basketball playoffs. The Boston. Game which I watched in its entirety was a wonderful game by the way when Boston Loses Niger Your Boston fan aren't you Celtics Fan? I am indeed love love the Celtics Yeah when they lose, they lose close in the playoffs. They lose in overtime they lose on an unbelievable shot with point five seconds today lose close and they lost close last night and they had their best player driving to the basket to win the game in overtime and Bam out of bio of Miami Miami's sneaky good team and a sneaky deep team they're deeper than the Celtics. BAM, out a bio block, the shot clock can't complain and Miami which was down by twelve at the beginning of the fourth quarter, took it into overtime and then won the game Miami's got. Dragged can play Jimmy? Butler is the best player on the court and this kid tyler hero who couldn't even start at Kentucky. If you give him room, Johnny also had a back nine or ten assists he can bury shots from anywhere Miami's good. Boston's good. Miami's good. Good that's a good series and that's not the headline no, no, no, no, no no no. The headline today is the utter historic collapse of will bonds pick to win the NBA championship from one? Because they had Leonard and Paul George. The Los Angeles Clippers. Steve Balmer. Went into his very very deep pockets and pulled out hundreds of millions of dollars for Hawaii Leonard and Paul George. Now, I never thought spending money on July. Leonard was a bad idea Kawhi. Leonard has been the finals MVP for two different teams that won rings, San Antonio and I think incredibly last year Toronto. You know. This this will hurt co islanders performance last night in a game seven will hurt him but it will not carry over very long because he has a history doc rivers who is already the first coach Doc rivers will ban loves them because they grew up in Chicago, of course. Doc Rivers was already the first coach in NBA history to twice lose when up three one in the playoffs nobody in NBA history had done it more than once doctorate in Orlando and documented with clippers I guess, maybe he did it with some other franchise. WAS IT BOSTON? Did he lose three one with boss because we want to championship with Boston? Nigel he lose. In, Boston. By three one I. Don't think he did. But let me check on that. You ought to check that well now it's three three times because they were up three one and they had a lead in game five of sixteen points and they had a lead in game six of nineteen points and they had a lead in game seven of twelve game seven. This is why you spend money on. Kawhi. Leonard and Paul George who nicknamed Himself Playoff P.. and. Then came up with this in game seven. Four out of sixteen and ten points, he makes forty million dollars a year four out of sixteen and ten points. One free throw means he didn't bother to try to go to the basket. Why Leonard Six out of twenty two and fourteen points coup why Leonard and Paul George combined to start the fourth quarter the fourth quarter of a game seven old four nine. This way this will not stick to doc rivers. And will not stick to Leonard It will stick to Paul George. He's a loser. He's like James Harden in the playoffs it doesn't matter what happens. He's going out before you think he ought to go out he's he is a stone cold loser now and I can't wait for the show today can't wait like Bart Scott would say can't wait because will on things to Carson Wentz is a dog an overrated overpaid dog and I don't disagree with that. But he loves Paul George. Personally and Paul George is an overpaid dog at this point he's over. This is my wrong on this game seventy historic collapse Denver by the ways the first team ever to come back from three one twice I hope your camera works today you know. I mean Paul. George Come on you nicknamed yourself playoff t and in a game seven, you went n. four-fifths Sixteen and gave them ten points. and. He did. He's got a history of this. He's got a history of doing this even Carmelo. Anthony at one point set to Paul George, sure you WanNa give yourself that nickname are you sure? Because that puts all the pressure on on you in the world right on your shoulders Timmy Bon temps is going to join us I just WanNa talk to him about the bubble by after to about Paul George. Is this defensible Nigel's this defensible. Three times now with doc that's I mean I. Love to talk I'm talking about Paul George I WanNa Championship though Paul George. Wait a second see if any rings I don't think he does know play Leonard has to rings. Yes playoff is one of the worst nicknames you could possibly have in a situation self described. Self described. The way. This did it one other time with with clippers? Clippers. and twice now with the clippers. Yeah. So He's he won a championship with the Celtics. He's gotTa Ring. I. Got To. You know if this was the third time quite Leonard had done this you'd say. James Harden he disappears in game six or seven. When it's on the line, he doesn't win. You know I can think of another guy great in game six and not much in game seven locally. But Paul George has a history of this. It's not just once and one here we'll about I'm just GONNA. Say My defendant, your boy. Defend them by the way. Some other stuff on rivers holds the record for most game seven losses with a at snow. particularly. Great. Coach. there. Yeah. No. Within like a couple more those. I like duck. I Love Doc rivers now I think he's great. But. This is tough to have on your record. He also has lost in astonishing six playoff series after his teams have had a three two lead so. He can't you Bel Air Yeah he's. He's a belair today. He's out with uncle big Al Tha that. Oh boy. Let's get Outta here timmy good times Tim Bontemps will join us when we return to talk about life in the bubble is Tim Bontemps who apparently according to Brian Windhorst when he checked in the check in desk clerk said, and we have you here for seventy eight nights. I'm Tony. Kornheiser. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. Hey everyone. This new world we're living in has me and my family talking a lot more I mean we're talking about everything from how much greater was the greatest of all time than today's greatest automatic sour dough bread to football starting up again, it started up, come on, get new copy and trust me that last one's important I can keep watching my dog prance around the yard with a mouthful of Frisbees all day but I guess most people would rather watch football. Yes that's copy. That's a new line hadn't seen that before. That's good. But despite how talk if we all are the people that Lincoln financial want to point out one conversation that most people still have not had and that is about your financial plans. So do find time to talk to your loved ones about it because the more we talk the better we plan, protect and retire. That is why Lincoln financial is here to help you get the right questions to start your conversation at Lincoln Financial Dot Com. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. This is a song called gone. It's performed by will stamp. And we got a letter from Colin powers that reads like this. I feel ashamed to say that after being a faithful dedicated fan for years, I only recently was able to become law little while living the quarantine life working remotely from home. This couldn't have come at a better time to keep me company over the last few months in my personal one bedroom attic as such a big voice in my life I wanted to introduce. You to another and one of my best friends will when we were roommates opposite schedules as I often rushed home from ti he'd be working on his music playing her editing. Our schedules only allotted little time for us to chatter hang out, and most of that was me hanging in his home studio listening to them practice and fine tune his music as a up tim leaving for work and elitist for you and Michael on. PTO. This is called gone. Subtitle running away. This is good. Slow stamp. He's got a he's got an album out called the birthday the happy birthday EP. Very nice. Very nice. We'll plays music later in the show as well. we bring on Tim Bontemps from ESPN formerly, The Washington Post and before that of Saint Bonaventure University and I want to talk about life in the bubble because he's been in the bubble for a whole bunch of days now but before I do that. We have got to talk about the clippers last night in one of the historic gags of all time led by these self named playoff P. Paul, George Four sixteen ten points in game seven and combined with Leonard to go over nine at the top of the fourth quarter in a game seven, you watch basketball more closely than I. can you recall a bigger gagged in this? no. Tony there. There is not a bigger gag and I think NBA playoff history than this performance by the clippers in this series. I mean. If you go you go back and look at these final three games of the series. Clippers are up by sixteen points. Early in the third quarter of game five. They're up by nineteen points early in the third quarter of game six. and. They're up by twelve points late in the second quarter of game seven. And not only do they lose all three of those games they won't. Last. And they didn't make a basket until there was four minutes and fifty eight seconds to go in the fourth quarter not one basket for the first seven for the fourth quarter. I mean that was sitting watching the game like just laughing I was just laughing at the. Institute of this entire team they were down in the second half. In the second half, they're down fifty to thirty three down by. So this is a game seven. They have paid hundreds of millions of dollars for Kawhi Leonard and Paul George and what I said earlier Tim was Leonard has to rings and was the finals MVP two times including last year in astonishing win I thought Toronto and I don't think this will stick to him and Doc rivers. I know has now lost more than any other coach in history when up three. One. This is the third time he has done. This nobody has done it more than once but doc, rivers has a ring I think it sticks to Paul George I do I well, how what is pulled Georgia's reputation in the playoffs that Tony this sticks to everybody I mean this I mean you're right about George Right Paul, George I you know last night you know declaring that this wasn't a championship or bus season for for first clippers have traded every first round pick they haven't. So I think Buzi is in high school Yes. Bright Now to win a championship right now, this was a championship season perceive Palmer who is sitting at the game I was like watching and did not look very thrilled with the way the second half laid out for his team I mean. But the six to everybody I mean, why letter and Paul George Tomato ten, thirty, eight, last night while Jamal Murray goes for. Forty and Nikolay overseas a triple double and they lose in game and again it's not even that they lost in a fluky theories in the bubble it they were up double digits and all these games I mean I can't I cannot describe to you how bizarre it was to watch the scene just implode in each of these games it was the same thing to take a lead. bigly. Like all right they're. GonNa. Take care of business now, and then the nuggets who've our our down twelve or fifteen or nineteen. We're just GONNA turn around and come back and win the game and like. I mean they just completely demolished the team last night and like for people who aren't huge NBA Fan just doesn't happen in the NBA you don't have. Like the clippers that are you know basically the consensus pets. So win win. Yes just completely implode. I mean. This isn't a football game where you have like one day and things get messed up where you have a hockey goalie get hot or baseball pitcher get hot. This is this doesn't happen in the NBA. But I mean this I think this is all Poncho job it one, hundred, percent six. Paul George I think it's GonNa stick to co I Leonard. It's GonNa stick the dock for sure like you said, got three blown free one weeds. Remarkable I mean it really I it just it was incredible to watch really one other question then looking forward. Does this help or hurt the Lakers I'm sure the Lakers must've thought it was the clippers and the way they have played them. This year indicates that they really want to beat the clippers does this help or hurt them? I told you this. This is a huge thing for the Lakers I mean I mean Lebron. James you know you could go back through time and say that you know he was hurt by the cap spike in two thousand, sixteen have durant. Go to the warriors and had injuries. You know the Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love the year before right you could go back and say they were different points where he had some bad luck. Well, the the CS have party. For NPR. Okay. Yeah. I mean you look at these playoffs now I mean look I I don't think it's a fait accompli that the the Lakers are going to win the championship. But there's no question that they are now the clear favorite to win. And Okay if you without without Yang set a coupon in the box in the. Without Kawhi Leonard in the clippers in the mix mean, yes, I think Denver is a tough scene. They've proven that through these playoffs somehow. So playing when they could have been swept in the first round and the heat and Celtics are really good in the east. But. You know we'll Brian is the clear favourite to get a fourth ring, which is not something I anticipated saying in these playoffs, and now rooting for because he'd be the first guy to do with three different franchises. Leonard could have been but now Lebron still can be and I. You know I would for I. Let me get to the bubble. You've been in the bubble. How many days do you have a calendar where you're xing out days? How many days have you been in there so far? All the counters in my head and I have to say people have I probably had a dozen people are more recite back my own story that you've retold on the podcast after. Seventy eight nights. Yeah. So high. Yeah. That was. That was definitely a jarring thing here but today they fifty actually Exactly. This is the Fiftieth Day. But in my hotel room here at the. Disney campus. What is daily life? Like in terms of restrictions I mean I understand you can't leave but is there are there green pastures where you are or have you become sick of it? Have, you become sick of it? I'm not back on the farm on pastures yet okay but no I mean look I I I have pretty monotonous life. I would say I, mean I wake up every day and I. I I work out I go for a run. I come back I sit on the patio outside and I do work for. A few hours make phone calls, write stuff, and then I take a shuttle bus over to the arena and I watch whatever games are that day today there isn't happening any game so I'll be doing that but you know I, go over and watch and he's GonNa come back and then I do it again, I've done that for basically fifty days in a row. Okay. So let let me be specific about some things because I'm I'm sure you feel physically safe because I've talked to people from other teams who have left the bubble who felt physically safe there. But do you engage with other people face to face I mean or or you leading a solitary life? Well, I should of explain my situation 'cause I'm GonNa very bizarre situation compared to the bubble people. So there's people were in the bubble right like. WHOA, Gin Lee Andrews and Rachel Nichols they're all in the So I I jason. I'm Bob bubbalicious that testing. So I I. I'm in I'm in the second tier so I'm allowed to go to the Games. And Watch, the Games. From the stance, but I can't interact with people. in the bubble forget it like physically talk to coaches or players. I could talk to him and soon calls. you. You can't wander over to say even Rachel Nichols and say, hello 'cause you're in the Jason Bubble. A badge that says a Jason. So great but they're they're the bat I have a yellow. Credential. I couldn't Bryant word I don't know I have a yellow credential and they have green credentials. So when you want around who walk around wild world this fourth, Kansas, there's like. There's barriers erected. One side and the yellow side the other side it's Like being in an internment camp is fantastic. It is the strangest seven weeks of my wife for sure. So like I'll be walking on one on one side of the barrier and like Adrian or Rachel will be on the other side and will I wave and say hello and you know talk walk along the thing and talk. For two minutes. And then they'll you know they'll go their direction I'll go mike garage to laugh at you. They're laughing at too. You know that. Absolutely. Absolutely. So yeah. So I. Can Only Tim you can only interact with people with green credentials you have to eat with the Greens you can't eat with the yellows. All the way around farm yellow so I can't tell you. There's there. We have I have my own. They've been madman from here. ESPN is down here in a couple of other people and We have our own eating area. We can't eat with them can't be around them can't talk to anybody in there. It it's a truly. Truly Bizarre Existed all the way how often have you been tested? They get tested every day right? How often you bake tested? Every day. Twice a week. Every, Monday and Thursday, they basically don't care if you come down with it, just ship you out at that place. Yeah they. They initially I I think initially, they weren't going to test in this year at all, and then when the virus got much worse down here before things started things changed a little bit but we're in you allowed. Go ahead? No I was just GonNa, say we'RE GONNA call. So Sal They've fasting twice a week. I I do some to go back to your question earlier I do feel safe or something people in this hotel interact with each other because. It's 'cause we're all getting tested and we're here but. Kind of in the middle of nowhere on the campus. So there's not really anything to do. There's a golf course. Are you allowed to play golf with the with the Greens or do you have to play on the yellow course yellows get back Well. There's there's of course here is good I haven't. been sold. A mean of course, here is very good. I. Haven't had a chance to play breen is gone and played among other people And it's supposed to be good but other than that there's a golf course and there's a a restaurant or to the hotel. And I said, I go for a run outside but otherwise is not. Really anything to do. So you just Kinda you know you go go eat dinner with people and then go sit and work and. Watch the Games and then do it again the next day. How about the broadcasters? How Breen and Mark Jackson and guys like that? Are they green or yellow? Very yellow. So we're all we're I'm wrong at the same hotel, all the broadcast people. So I wa I was walking I was walking. I went to have dinner one day and you know Mike in an eagle and Kevin Harlan, we're auto table, which is a pretty pretty cool table since they those guys are all usually all different events never own the same place one day I was walking to go for Ron and and standing gundy work sitting at the table having lunch. to the odd thing to see So yeah, all all the broadcasters from. GNC and ESPN, and then some league people who are in the yellow tear all at this hotel. But I'm are you either angry or jealous? I mean what is your personal feeling about this particular hand of cards that you've been dealt? In what sense? Well I mean you're yellow you know I mean there's obviously a class, a caste system here. There's no question about that. Are you okay with it or do you have? Would you say no one yet really liked to be green I'd like to be green like kermit the frog. Yellow for caution and green means. Go I'm glad that probably a red credential you not allowed anywhere not allowed in the state of Florida Red Red Red means did out like the clippers get out home. No look I I mean listen. I Feel. Very fortunate to be down here and working You know especially in an environment as you know, as well as anybody where a lot of people are not working, that's why. You know so I mean I. I feel very fortunate to be here I mean it is a I can't describe to you what it's like being at these games with. You know one hundred people and no fans at these at these games. I. Mean it's just it's just incredibly surreal. to be at these games and watching the stuff with basically nobody else and this is a hopefully. Singular experience that won't happen again and won't have to happen again hopefully. I tell you as a viewer tim as a viewer. The hockey and the basketball. I am not upset with no fans I. Think they've done a good job with the virtualization of fans. I. Can live with it in baseball though it's odd football is terrible without fans football is the one sport affected most. Right. noticed. I noticed that over the weekend. Yeah I mean I I'm told the people here I mean, obviously, we both were for the end, but I think a the broadcast both PNC and ESPN have done an incredible job. Yes game. Like I've had lot of people who are home say to me. Hey I think I'm I feel like I'm watching a game. Basically any arena you know I mean, I, I think they've really done. A terrific job with it but yeah, no look I feel I. Honestly I'm not just saying this I, I, feel fortunate to be here and it's You know it's been a really cool assignment I mean yesterday I went and saw. The Celtics play an ethic overtime game and then I walked to yards and I watched the clippers the ultimate gag job of all time in the same day I mean it's It's been. It's been pretty neat to it's a pretty neat to be here for it like, yeah. Obviously I would be able to do different work if I was If I was in this green tier go interview when I was at the same time it's been kind of fun challenge for me to come up with. Ways to do my job. In a different way than normally would 'cause you're not going to press conferences and stuff but like I've described to people you know in the Truman. Show? With Jim. Carrey walks out of the sky at the end of the movie. I feel like I'm the white person at the top of the sky like working on the light bulbs at the top looking down on the show. Kind of power described my my daily situation that people here. 'CAUSE I go to these games like didn't like the second tier of the stands and I like. Fifty feet away from the court but I can't actually. See Anybody. Or Talk to anybody. So it's A. Very odd situation but been it's been pretty fun. I'll get you out of here on this. Is there anybody and you don't even have to name names or anybody who has come to you and said I can't stand this anymore. I'm out of here. I cannot live like this. It's thriving me insane. Not No not really I mean it's I mean there's very few people who have been here as long as me and Dave. Have I mean the two of us have been here for. The same fifty days and some of the people in the Bible have been here that long. No Adrian and Balik. I've been here fifty sixty days. Bengal Washington Post has been down here for that long but but yeah no, I mean look I think everybody generally feels. The same way that I do that, you know if you've covered sports, you cover anything you kind of want to be. There and be part of it right and this is A. This is obviously a very bizarre situation but you know it's one that you know. I feel like it's it's pretty neat to be part of and hopefully. I don't have to be part of again. So I'll wait for the next four weeks. Well, I mean Anita and I hope there's not another pandemic we can go back to having normal games That'd be nice. So you know I've got four more weeks from today is the the match a lot? It's Day I think depending on how the? Conference, finals and finals go so. I can make it another four weeks and then you know we'll wait and see when basketball comes back. But I hope to God. You're getting points from this hotel. I hope you're getting points I fear that you're not that I. You are right I think I think that I'm not but. Yeah. Well, but I'm sure listen we work for a very, very nice company and they'll still send you a mouse ear thing or something like that. They'll send you something. Thank you.

Can Base your picks on against the spreads in the first week of a season when there are no exhibition games and just no sense of what's going on you went three and four, which is it's okay. It's not great but you could have gone on seven. You certainly lost on the Washington football team which he had proudly picking against since I was and I am happy that Aaron Rodgers. Made. Me and not only that. So my packer buddies and I we decided this is what happens when Aaron Rodgers. Doesn't date a famous woman. This. Is it right? Get Rid of get rid of that issue and Suddenly. I said on the. Show that on Sunday evening, he should have gone into matlock floors office and said, I, hate your guts trade me by five o'clock tomorrow and go play boy. Jordan love. That's what should have done because he was great. He was great. They should've put up sixty I mean I was nervous in that game when he was eight seven, you're like wait a minute they've been down here three times only got eight points. This isn't good. Then So the problem that we have this week is we don't want to overreact to last week because there's still no gauge they won't. Right. You don't overreact what's the point of this segment we have to overtake. Okay. If you WANNA put it that way. Let's start with these games the LA. The La Rams beat the very overrated Dallas cowboys. They're always overrated the La rams now go across the country to Philadelphia, which suffer probably the most stinging defeat of the entire week last week and the La Rams. Are, getting a point and a half who you got I look at it talk about Iraq. I'm all over the ran I'll overreact on that until I I will say this the rams are going to be team to bet on early not late in the season they have no depth. Because of how all those superstars and all that that they had but. They look. They look like a looks like a well coached team and the Eagles don't have many people. I mean in fairness to them, they should put that game away against against the football they did your. And and and look I while I'll give the eagles some latitude because of a comedy missing pieces they had. I have no idea whether favorite. Doesn't make an order why but I just I just think. There's going to be market correction in all of these places. I don't know. Yeah look I was a little. You know I was curious to see how road teams are doing general traveling out of the bubble gum to a different city. I mean look I'll be honest I've gone to different cities just a couple of times during the. I've been nervous about it. I think about everything over word what am I touching what am I seeing? What am I doing and I wondered if some of the out of town teams with if that would that would be a problem that I didn't notice anything. I, we have a division game caroline at Tampa Bay both teams lost I don't think it was stunning Tampa Bay lost they're playing New Orleans but I do think they probably have to win. I'll tell you what was stunning Bruce Arians lit up Tom Brady said I. Hope he shows more grit next week Bruce Arians. How many Super Bowl rings you have exactly that you can say this the Tom Brady Carolina is getting nine that is a big number at Tampa Bay who you got I love Carolina here I think they're a good football team. A team, I watched a lot of that Carolina game. Reds. My Red Zone I'd I direct TV another student business Red Zone was on that game a lot because there was a lot of it was going back and forth. the raiders and Carolina both entertaining teams. Those are fun teams to watch. Carolina looks pretty good. I think bridgewater. McCaffrey, who's who you know they shouldn't be losing by two scores to anybody. I don't find that. So that and Tampa, where does Jameis Winston go to get his apology? Because because it looked Tom Brady looked a lot looked like he was gonna Jameis Winston impersonation well to pick six. Two picks and a pick six he's he's. He's certainly on pace for thirty thirty he's on. Is. Tom Brady is there in Tampa uniform throwing going thirty thirty? Then is this a Bruce Arians issue or quarterback issue? It made me were friends. Yes I understand but we I think we gotta go four Games I. Think we probably got to go four games and and overreaction week to let's go. Atlanta is at Dallas Dallas overrated Jerry Jones will have a stroke if Dallas loses this game Atlanta, which is a team that was relatively recently in the Super Bowl and has a very good quarterback and yet never wins anymore. They don't win anymore but they put up points, Atlantic getting four and a half at Dallas. They by they put they, they didn't look good I saw Matt Ryan. There was a point Matt Ryan rolled out and he got caught not by a superfast linebacker with kind of some plotting defensive tackle and I thought Oh Matt? Ryan? Maybe. You know. Maybe. He may be on the wrong side of the quarterback Kurt on that one If Dallas Loses this McCarthy is jobs on the line is not. From I'm sorry. Probably at one of the is Atlanta Atlanta might be one of the three or four. People will put up signs saying, bring back who's a previous coach Jason Garrett Bring Back Yard. So you can take Dallas Gimme Dallas they had homecoming. Okay. MINNESOTA. which lost to Green Bay, Minnesota's getting three. Indianapolis Indianapolis lost as well. I don't have a sense of these teams I just you know I don't me personally I'm not a kirk cousins Guy Minnesota plus three at indy. I'M GONNA GO WITH MINNESOTA SIMPLY I'll take Zimmer over over over the colts but you know it's interesting. You say don't have a yet. It's amazing how Philip Rivers looks like Philip rivers no matter what uniforms in and say that yes good and that's bad like at the he's somehow doesn't know how to close the game out they that's an and that was all the time with the chargers all the time they bleed they. You'd be like, Oh chargers man they could beat anybody. Yeah, and they can lose to anybody that's. That's what the cope. Philip rivers colts team just like that. So I agree with that I like their coach I like Frank Reich because I knew it was at Maryland I like them. I don't know about that Game Baltimore is giving seven at Houston Baltimore looked great against Cleveland. We have no idea of Cleveland's any good Houston was beaten by Kansas City that was ten or eleven days ago. So they've had a lot of time. Bill O'Brien is both the coach and the general manager he traded away de'andre Hopkin but but to be fair David Johnson had a pretty good day Baltimore minus seven. This will match up very exciting quarterbacks. Amar. Jackson into Shawn Watson who got seven's a lot well minus seven, which means a lot of this is a teaser candidate. Right? This is one yom's down for one point matchup of another team I I'm not gonNA get. After watching talking about overreacting Lamar, Jackson? Looked like he wanted to win the MVP with his arm this it's like watch him watch me throw the ball as well as I run the ball. I'm not getting the way that juggernaut until they lose till they don't cover. Multiple. mahomes black area. Jackson by the way at Louisville when he won the heisman trophy, really was a good passer really was a good passer. So this should come as no real surprise New England New England one and all with Cam Newton running fifteen times and New England running forty two times New England at Seattle. I think this is the Monday night game. New England is getting four Russell Wilson. Looked great. Great. This is tough game to pick. A. Really tough game. This is not the sneaky. This is a sneaky good gay, the the the the most interesting game on the board. I I'm very curious to see what New England's offense looks like week eleven and twelve after Cam. Newton's taking his head right I'll be seeing this. We've seen this Cam Newton show before in Carolina. It looks really good at times. and. Then, and then the then the hit start take a toll. Man You know in in the Ol-. If there were fans I'd be all over Seattle. GimMe Gimme. GimMe GimMe Gimme New England early, me really will help it. Really I'm now only because we have no home pre, I'm betting on the no home field. I would know, wow, would I go the other way on this and that's interesting. Okay. That's that's good and now the team that you casually referred to as the football team, which makes me laugh every. Football team. Just rolled up their ad Arizona where De'andre Hopkins landed Arizona beat San Francisco. Arizona looked pretty good. Washington is getting six and a half at Arizona. Are you going against him again for the second time I've not I murray did you watch him at all? Yeah. that is it looks like I'm GonNa date myself he looks like a guy and techmo bowl. He just sort of always running around always. He's always able to find open space. Good. He's good on. Anything. Over the line and yet he's not. Everything is there I? I'm just GONNA be a good game. I say the football team has quite the defense that's a legit defense and watching chase. Chase Kylo will be interesting but I I I'm I think I'm GonNa I. I think Arizona's a sneaky. There the there I'm I'm on that bandwagon with the rest of the you know, hey, they're the course of the NFC. So I'M GONNA. Jump to keep playing ailing for well. Yeah. If we'll on, didn't talk about them all the time I'd like the more, but it's just. So sickening about Arizona and demands. He likes even after Mitch like play the no he. He fell in love again with trubisky. In the fourth quarter but of course, that's a love that is not going to last. It's not going to last the whole season way. Our friend Bill Simmons brought up that as bad as twenty twenty what At, least the jet the Brown. Stinking you know. Shows you that some things never change continuity in life continuity life is important game by the way tomorrow night the battle of Ohio Cleveland and we use impressed I was with Joe Borough. I was even the bad. Pitch that was like pass. Pass that you think you're superman. You think you can make every play. It's good that that happened to him in the first game I. think that will mean that makes even fewer of those dumb errors. The season goes on he looked good to me. Is that to how? How about that delay on the kicker pulling his muscle? Oh, wait did I. Miss a kick? That was yeah. I can't really hurts my calf Shanka Potter missed. An easy kick you're going to tie the game you're gonNA keep going on. It's terrible. All right. Thank you, Chuck. Is Thank you Tony Chuck Todd. Boys and girls, and if we just gave you chuck todd, that would be enough but we give you more than Chuck Todd. Give you. Among. Watching Hanging with bud grant tap tap tap in his purple. To. Do not. Sometimes. Pennies at too much John. All right. Whereas reginal these days where did you go visit them Nigel? Well I actually went down to the zoo Mr Tony and he was not there I was given. To Zun Conference Him. So I zoomed with them apparently, he flew out to Los Angeles to play Belair Without Mike. Now they had a force him setup. John Malkovich and Bruce Dern. But now that Doc rivers is out, I'm not sure because one of those guys be the man I'm sure. By the way, the monkey on sneaky good. He's a three. That's great. I have to hit ten. Since. He was one in two last week one or two. Who's he got this week. So the first game of gave him was a Philadelphia giving one and a half hosting the rams. I was surprised. But this reginald showed me a photograph of him Tug McGraw Bobby Clark and Harold Carmichael Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro Together. So he will take philly and give the one and a half in that match I mean just say this filled loses this game it's going to be very uncomfortable for Carson wentz and Philadelphia. Uncomfortable, vary uncomfortable and maybe for Doug Peterson to and he won a super bowl. The next game we gave him was Seattle, getting four at home against the Patriots. In. This was a lovely little photograph showed me of him, Jim Zone, Steve Lodging and the X men Xavier mcdaniel Open croquet together I'm not sure where that was, but clearly, he's got Tyson Seattle area and I would have done this to. I think that Pete Carroll is almost as good. A defensive coach as Bill Belichick is and I think that he will know how to defend Cam Newton and I would have gone this way from Seattle chopped it and I would I'm with the monkey on this one. The last game we gave him was the Washington football team football team. Yes. Smaller. and. This was a lovely little video. He sent me of Him Ritchie, pettibone monk and Jake Joe Jacobi all on paddleboats right Jefferson Memorial. So. That's good. Okay. We're good We will take a break when we return we will have email in jingle and I'm Tony Kornheiser. This is the Tony. Kornheiser show. As Mail. House facts your no. Onis Mail. ooh.

SIPOWICZ, I listen to your description and Friday's podcast about travails of parking in the garage in the building where your doctor's office is located like you I'm old like you have physicians located in the building across. Wisconsin. Avenue from sacks and in the barlow just down the street like you I detest at garage here's a suggestion for future park your car in the large lot across the street attached to the many high end stores they're lot is completely outdoors yet is has more generously drawn parking spaces and is much less expensive than the building garage parking that lot, and then crossing the street to your doctor's office only adds a couple of. Minutes to the total trip. I'm not much of a sports fan but I, enjoyed the podcast nevertheless for the banter keep up the good work from greer Henderson Idea Ron I have no interest in the license plate game but I happen to see a Georgia one the other day I thought you might appreciate and it is it's on one Hyundai Sonata and it is from Fulton County Georgia and it is Buzi beal ot SI there's. Handed to Michael Matt Murphy in Mount Pleasant South Carolina, I went for a walk on the beautiful beach at Sullivan's island South Carolina where I have been after watching the bills, beat the jets on. Sunday, it was a wonderful evening that was beautiful sunset in the water was eighty four degrees perfect for an evening dip. On the way home we were crossing the bridge in between Sullivan's island and the Isle of Politics and I believe that's where Susan o'malley has a house over breach inlet. There were two police cars with their lights stopped on the bridge as we drove past I was shocked to see that the man whom the police had stopped had on a chatter t shirt. Window and give a TK salute or for Lucia Serie and support. We're on the other side of the bridge woman to whom I'm related by marriage. Why I had a smirk on my face I said the guy who the police were stopped. They had he had a chatter t shirt on. She had no idea. What was so I tried to explain to her further Tony Kornheiser failed restaurant hoping for the best for the guy in the chatter t shirt and thanks for all the laughs. HOW DID IT FIT? All.

"Now that's a spicy pepper"

The Tony Kornheiser Show

"Now that's a spicy pepper"

"Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show. And she's out early walking every day if I take the dog out. And I are out six or so she's out walking every single day when I don't see her I. Don't know what's going on yesterday i. saw her later in the day and I said, where were you in the morning and said Oh I had some hits from CNN early in the morning so I had to get ready. I may not be pleasant to look at for any of you. Believe me I try my best. The Tony Kornheiser show is on. Now this is a very exciting moment for me on this show my son Michael is seated distance properly six feet away from me at Uncle Benny's tabled. The dog has been out in the rain all morning and she's lying on A. Light. Colored Rug and ruining it. Later she will just bark and scream. we had rain last night and rain continuing today with a apparently some win because it. Knocked over it didn't break but it knocked over the housing of the big tomato plan is that fair to say? Yes. So this tomato plants now five feet taller. So it's really big and it just has your standard cage in the cage can only go as deep as the planter. So it's only about eighteen inches not all that's filled with soil. So we didn't have the heavy storms last night, but it's not surprising that the way to the tomatoes it was a slow fought support. So we need to take it off the railing of the deck because that would just. Make it easier for squirrels squirrels would not have to use any brain power whatsoever, and obviously the rain has washed away whatever ameliorative effect the Cayenne pepper may or may not have had but that's not what we're talking about today. Today, we are looking at a pepper plant, not the the two big pepper plants that I have that yield big peppers, big bell peppers. Every one of them is filled with fungus I did something wrong or something happened it doesn't WanNa the heat well, whatever happened happened but there's one small pepper plant yielding small tomatoes small sort of dwarfed tomato DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PEPPERS? I'm sorry. Maybe a difference between a Mana pepper and a Jalapeno pepper they are shaped sort of like that. Doesn't have the long sort of cone shape of a Jalapeno has the the narrow neck of banana pepper. So I, cut one that appeared to be ripe or relatively right because it was green turning to yellow, which means when it turns yellow, it will turn to read at some point. So this this is ready for harvesting I washed it I cut it with a small paring knife. I then put my fingers in my eyes and I can't see the heat is such. That I cannot see I'm holding this outcome passing the plate in passing the plate to Michael and we want Michael to just nibble on one of these peppers I would nibble on the yellow est one because I think that's the ripest one. That's why I went for water with you. I have water I don't I. So let me just say this I think this is a variety of a bell pepper. It's got it's got that shape unwise why am I is burning? Standing Outside in the rain for twenty minutes trying to save your tomato plant. Okay. So Now. So on the nose, there's actually a little bit of Heat I. Think this is. I don't. I. Don't know how I got this plan just take a small by Google. Did you get rid of you? Fully get rid of the membrane this there's no seeds. I'm just saying I took the seeds out of spicy. That's where a lot of it would be. So don't eat the membrane need on the side insane and Michael has taken a bite a small little bite of this. If Michael Goes over like the tomato plant, I I apologize. So there is heat this. It's not a hot pepper. This actually could be a banana pepper that the heat is rising right? What are those units called? To. US. British. Thermal. Units. Of the heat unit I don't know I. Don't know are you is your mouth exploding? No, don't touch the pepper, your skin your. Pet the. Dog Don't pet the dog. Oh. This is this is a hot pepper. Hot Pepper. It's not is it goes pepper it's not going to make you cry. You're not. You're watching for bread or milk you don't have to wash your mouth, but this is a hot pepper. Okay. So what do I do with down the road? Let's give them. It is yielding the greatest amount of unfunded. Fruit, and vegetable well that he can withstand. Wow. It's so are you tell me what happens later in the day? Why don't you take a bite? Not Not now a little bit later in the day did you wash your hands? I washed my hands. I did everything I just I don't WanNa touch my eyes anymore I don't know what is truly happened. But. The, it's called the SCOVILLE. Scale, this heat units kill. So S. H. U. is the unit on the SCOVILLE scale is that anything like the simple meter in golf fear? What's the scale of one to ten? Is that no Michael Michael's laid the pepper down on the would the would is joining I've already sanitized by heads. Now just to give you an example, a ghost pepper, which we think is one of the hottest peppers out there. Yes. Between Eight, hundred, thousand and one million on the SCOVILLE one, million, probably twenty to thirty thousand. Really that much. But that doesn't seem like a lot compared to goes pepper. Well, what about irregular pepper? Which is zero? Okay. It's more than zero goes. Yes. Could you if you went to a subway to buy a sandwich? Could you find these peppers I think I think this. If I looked at the way, it was cut if you cut it around the entire diameter made thin little rings. It would look like your standard banana pepper particularly with this yellow that's now coming through. Okay. All right. So You're done eating it. I don't really want anymore of this right now if I had you think you'll ever want anymore because I've got about fifteen of these. Well, you knew that I was dealing with some heartburn issue so I don't really want this right now. Okay. So maybe we'll give it to Nigel. Sinister. Some smile. Do not I just I just wanted to know what because you said to me you threaten to throw ghost peppers to kill me. Well, let's. Say, the ET planting went well. Okay. So last night I wanted to watch the nats. And you know around six o'clock or six, fifteen, six, six, thirty I got back with the dog and I wanted to watch the nats figured I'd get it around the second inning and it was already the seventh inning that started at four o'clock I was unaware I was working at four o'clock. You missed an uninspired feddie start. Okay. But then the bullpen came in power who I can't stand cannot stand him gave up a home run and then rainy who'd been doing so well gave up a home run. TORONTO. In four games against ads had like eight to ten home runs all solo home runs I believe. And then Hudson came in and was fine. He gave some contact. He did there was no role plays had to go to the wall not over the wall robots had to go to the wall and bring one back. So the bullpen is scary all the time I didn't see any numbers don't say that the numbers say the bullpens actually pretty good. A team that was hunting home runs any to ballpark that was playing pretty small for most of the series. Yes that's what he was saying that there was you know the the the ball was carrying. So the nats. righted themselves to a degree there now three and four they're off for a while because they had the marlins scheduled. They are off for the weekend which when they had lost those three in a row, you worried, okay. A bad team needs to keep playing again to rhythm and you'd figure okay the Marlins, you're gonNA get some wins you're going to at. least stay in rhythm but right now I don't know what the process is. I don't know why Soda Wasn't able to play I guess DC health had to approve his play as well. How can they not approve it? He's a star player. That's what we're GONNA see somebody in DC in the mayor's office betting on betting the under on the Nazis win. Always at was that what's going on 'cause then you had, you had a couple other players who have some tightness kendricks maybe that maybe it's good to have a hard reset, get Strasbourg back, try and do whatever. I don't know what they're going to do with the pitching in terms of how they WANNA lineup when they come back because it feels like they're. Able to start right because it's it's on five, and so you just wonder you have like six zero against the mets but you look at what happened in these last two games when they were the away team at their home ballpark. The great thing to see Carter key booms beginning to hit and he doesn't look lost him in the lineup that well, yes. Put Him in the lineup. Pogo. Davies him in the lion row blaze. Great fielder but he's beginning to hit and it's gain Bonifazio nowhere near him guys like Castro beginning to find rhythm and you and you realize why I mean because you've seen guys like this on everyone's feels like they used to play for the phillies or the more Castro played for the cubs and the Marlins Castro was pretty good and any hunts I I mean he's he's. Doing some damage, right. So the so the nets have made me feel a little bit better though their bullpen each guy in their last night who I saw scared me, and then this is this is the way of life with the bullpen. Honestly, because you expect them to come in and shut a team down, it doesn't happen with any particular. Mariano Rivera. Yeah. So anyway, The other thing I wanted to say was basketball had the restart last night was on Turner last night I watched. A GOOD PORTION OF THE NEW ORLEANS UTAH game without any particular interest in it but I sort of watched it. To See what would happen because we'll set how it was presented in such a great way. It was presented like a basketball game was fine. They had cut out they'd cardboard cutouts in the you know in the lower standards. So for a wide shot, you saw faces or something like that. The basketball was okay. design. Williamson play much. I can look minutes for you. Look minutes on. Zion. Williamson I did not watch. I didn't watch the clippers and the Lakers I got up this morning to find out the Lakers had won by two. I am rooting for Lebron James To win the championship I, it is my belief that a great player who is also a great leader will win the championship I. Don't think. Kawhi. Leonard is a great leader. No one thinks he's a great leader is a great player. The people at San Antonio didn't like him because he tried to leave the team. There are people out there. That are great leaders as well as players. James Harden is not one of them. I think Russell Westbrook might be one of them. I think Kevin Durant who I don't particularly like because I think he's nuts is a great player and a leader on the court. He takes responsibility for the ball on the court. None of them is as good as Lebron James doing that Lebron, James didn't even have a particularly good night, but it's team once so I will watch that. At, some point and we'll bond want to talk about this all the time the takeaway for me from the last podcast we did and my take away from basketball is the line that Brian Windhorst said about Tim bontemps checking in at the hotel at the Bubble Hotel and having a desk clerk say to him. We've got you here for seventy eight nights. That is one of the scariest. I've ever heard. We've got you here for seventy eight nights. That's what really. So, how are you? Are you able to speak Michael waiting for you to take a break fifteen minutes resigned six eight not much six eight is very good. Fifteen minutes not much You know the the NBA desperately wants him in the playoff mix because people will tune into watch him yeah. People will tune in to watch him. Thank you for not sharing the car story are no not I wasn't. GonNa do that. For Different Day. When you refused to pepper. So, we'll take a break Steve Sands will join us when we return he's in Memphis with the WGC not is he getting ready for harding park and and the object? Find out we'll ask him. We'll ask him where he is all right. I'm Tony Kornheiser. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. Here's the simply safe ad. Here's the thing about home security companies most trap with high prices, tricky contracts, and lousy customer support. So while there are a lot of options out there, there's only one no-brainer and that's simply safe. Simply safe's got everything you need to protect your home with none of the drawbacks of traditional home security. It's got an arsenal of sensors and cameras to blanket every room win room not womb. Sound like Bob cousy blanket room window and door tailored specifically for your home. Hello wound. That's an inside job. Professional Monitoring Keeps Watch day and night ready to send police fire medical professionals. If there's an emergency, you can set it up yourself in under an hour. You just peel and stick the sensors exactly where you need them. There's no technician required. There's no contract no pushy sales guys no hidden fees no fine print and all his starts at fifteen dollars a month. I'm not the only one who thinks simply safe is great us news and World Report named at the Overall Home Security of twenty twenty and just to be accurate. Here. The copy that was given to me whoever wrote the copy wrote actually I'm not the only one who think simply safe is great. No No, I'm not the only one who thinks. So if you're listening if simply safe is listening to this, your copy writer needs to be correct. grammatically try simply safe today at simplisafe dot com slash Tony used the code you get free shipping and a sixty day risk-free trial there's nothing to lose that's simplisafe dot com slash Tony simply a spelled S. I m. p. l. i. Simplisafe Dot Com Slash Tony. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. This is Patrice. Of the peaches and peaches in her. We played her the other day. She was great. Doesn't even come close. I got some emails here. About are one of them saying did you listen to the entire song at the end of the podcast? This woman is Great. So she also, Niger, she just sent us a couple of songs, right? That's right. Get couple more songs that will play both of them today. This is called it's going to be all right Yup it's GONNA be. All right. That's right. It's a professional singer kids. She's really good I'll read the emails later go ahead. She wrote this song after she and a friend of hers eight some extremely hot hot peppers. A very hot I wouldn't give. Well I these people I will give these types say hey. Pepper licking touch your eyes. Steve. Sands of the golf channel NBC joins us. Now there is a big event this week in Memphis. It is not as big as next week's then which I sort of want to concentrate on, which is the PGA championship at a public course harding park in. San Francisco California are you in Memphis? I am not in Memphis actually I'm right near where you. Go shopping and spend a lot of money in Delaware. Okay. Are you going to go to the PGA? Well. There's kind of a covert thing going on. So the travel has been limited I'll be working next week but not be actually in San Francisco that makes any sense. So this is what this is what a lot of telecasts in all sports are doing in all sports. The exception to the rule is if you watch the nats and you see carpenter and F P can't keep them away from the part that's the exception to the rule they're sitting next to each other at the park seems to be like one of those spit screens in between them sneeze guards or whatever that is. So so what does this mean for your sport your job and everybody's job Well I mean I'm just lucky to have a job. I think all of us are just lucky to have a job center. It's strange like when you're used to calling live sports at the event and then you're doing it from a studio, you're telling you from another place other than actually being then. It's just really really strange. I think the hardest thing and I think Jim, Nance I think CBS has done a fabulous job so far since pj towards returned of trying to find the right energy, it probably doesn't make a lot of sensitive audience but for us doing yeah, Yanno normally normally there's a crowd normally people normally there's a lotta enters at an event. So when their silence was watching Kevin Harlan last night caller NBA game with nobody they have Kevin, Harlan's always screaming and yelling cut it goes curious how he was going to find the right energy. And and I think Jiminez has done it very well at CBS and I think we're going to try to do that as well. It's a, it's a delicate. Mix of trying to make sure that you have the energy that you normally would have. But also don't have too much energy because there's no crowd out there and went up at ambient noise Tony. It seems Kinda. I don't know how you felt watching golf these last seven or eight weeks. It's it's odd to me to to not here knows with these guys had great shocks Steve. There's an enormous difference in watching a baseball game where they are piping in noise. Sometimes at inappropriate times but mostly at appropriate times, it's an enormous difference. You feel even though there's nobody in the stands you feel like you're part of telecast because there is at least some noise they don't do that in golf. I don't know if maybe they should. It's Nice what you say about about Nance. Because this is for people not in the television business this is. Really a big deal. If you are not with somebody, you work with all the time we'll bond an I can get away with it because for so many years he did so much travel and we are used to being apart and our chemistry does not suffer but I will tell you that when I'm in my attic and he somewhere else I am louder than I want. To be it's that strange thing where you say to yourself well, he can't hear me 'cause he's not next to me even though you know that's insane. You do it anyway and you and you miss a little bit. You don't you can't jump in in the way you want to jump in. It feels not as good as when you are together, you must feel the same way. Yeah I totally agree you know it's if you think of it in any type of business these days with zoom calls and teams meetings, all these types of things when you're watching television whether it's sports or news would you have that little delay and you don't have that ability to touch someone and I don't mean just physically I mean be with somebody when you have a partner say like if I'm in the booth and I've got an analyst with me where Jim Nance Casey Nick Faldo with case with Wilbad if it's just not, it's just not easy to. You know Kinda gather. Your thoughts but kind of gathered the correct type of energy. So you're not talking over in Saudi or not pausing too long doesn't seem as natural I give those guys a lot of credit It'll be really interesting to see how we go about doing it a once we start picking up coverage as well. By the way I noticed last week, I guess it was the Jim MCI bones was caddying again is, is he not on television anymore? Thou don't out he's doing TV, but he he's actually he's got a great gig. He's he's made more money during this pandemic than any of us. He was caddied for Matthews is Patrick when the PGA was Dublin Ohio for those two weeks the workday and oil, and now he's working this Memphis and next week at the PGA Championship for Justin Thomas Because Johnson not not the football coach Jimmy Johnson. The caddy for Justin Thomas is not one hundred percent healthy not covid related I don't think, but it's not a hundred percent healthy and he's working for Justice Thomas this week in next week so. It's It's been a it could be very lucrative couple of weeks for for Jim Bat before bones. He's a great guy. So let me get to the virus concerns. There have been a few people on the golf tour who have had to bow out one of them I know is Danny McCarthy because he's a local kid for us and Bob Dolan has been his teacher for many many years of owner Columbia So I wondered I haven't heard more people I. I'm wondering what do they do? Are they testing daily or weekly has there been more? Is there any particular fear because California is a hotspot state and everybody is going out to San Francisco There is no more fear I think the guy's got shared after Nick Watney became the first PGA tour player to test positive at Hilton head it was a run their about five days Like four and six positive tests, players and caddies. I think everybody was thinking really go kinda like ball with the Marlins gala of people with the phillies organization everybody's thinking Oh boy but baseball is still gotta plow through. Here's the as they try to you know. Navigate the waters of. The really nice job and Jay Monahan other future toward the commander came. GIVE BEGINNING FADE ON US Steve you're. Beginning. To say. Yeah. Okay. Go ahead. Go back to the Monte him point. So Jay Monahan came out and said, listen we have to learn to live with this and the players need to make sure that they stay in this bubble and they do it correctly and after a couple of weeks when they had those positive tests including the local. Kid. Danny McCarthy I think the PGA tour players and the caddy's realize you know we'd better tighten the screws year and and not go outside of this bubble that we have with the PGA tour as best they can. And there have not been positive cases in the last few weeks the not that the fear is gone away but I think the guys of realized we better not do things we shouldn't do go out and get a pizza maybe go out and have a drink kind of those things right and doing the first couple of weeks and I think that the guys realize that if they continue to do that and they had positive tests that could be. A risk of the game shutting down and that would have been bad for everybody and so far they have been cleaned so far. There have been no positive tests the last few weeks and PGA tour continues to test every single week. You can't get on the charter planes. You can't go to the golf course unless you tested negative and the and the guys and the CADDY's officials and everybody around the tour. So for the last few weeks. Since scare of about four or five six people. Ositive so far so good. So let me ask this because we golf we think of in a different way than we think of a team sport because it's an individual sport, we accept that in team sports teams travelled together there are buses there are planes they are chartered everything everybody sits together they travel as a team this to my knowledge. This is not true in golf is golf now providing a certain amount of transportation to sort of keep people in a bubble. Doing it as best they can. So unlike the NBA which sends it everybody to Orlando, for instance, puts them in the bubble and keeps them there. PGA Tour that there's no. Bargaining agreement there's no union guys come and go as they please you can play this week not play next week an employee the following week. So what the PG tour's done Is for those who are not claiming continuous weeks they've given guidelines of the players and the caddies and the officials of doing certain things as far as partition but when you do play consecutive weeks so say last week they played the three m open and now this weekend Memphis Apples to Memphis PJ torrance highlighted during this Cova period. A charter plane for everyone to be able to travel on one plane can't get on the plane on. Sunday night unless you tested negative prior. So they had those rapid tests and then when land in the next city, you also take another test to make sure that you're able to be able to go to the golf course the next day or whatever you choose two days later. However you go about your practice schedule The difference between team sports and individual sport like golf is that. Nick Watney per se. They Nick. Watney was the first place. He's a great kid. I'm not picking on. He was the first player to test positive right happened. Happened to not play that we prior Tony. So he flew on his own to Hilton head didn't play the week prior right? That's where it gets dicey. Because, he's The big big big players you know the cap gives Dustin Johnson Rory, mcilroy of the world they thought privately and not only do they fly privately but they bring people with friends caddies. Hurt, the case may be so it's really hard to keep a tight bubble engulf and like I said after those first few weeks when they had a couple of positive tests and got scared realizing that it could shutdown that continued the guys have really really tightened it up and made sure they follow the protocols that the PGA tour gave them when this all began at colonial seventy weeks ago. Yeah. Undoubtedly we're going to try and put you on next week prior right prior to the. PGA But there were a couple of player questions long-term player questions one of which may be answered books. Capco. May Have answered the question, which is what's wrong with Brooks Koepka by shooting sixty two yesterday were there concerns about him because he'd been bad lately. Yeah he is, and he's the defending champion in the PGA. Defending, champions this week in Memphis and the defendant ship tweak at the PGA Championship. In fact, it's trying to win the PGA the third consecutive year. On that. So he's trying for history next week. The biggest thing with Brooks is his knee isn't he is not right I don't remember when we were in Korea. Late last year and he hurt his be he has not been a hundred percent since and he actually got a little bit screwy there with his game when he was one what is wrong with brooks cabinet he's fine. His Games Fund is confidences there. I don't know if a one round will fix that. But boy, he looked sharp yesterday and he went and saw. That the course whisper in golf is a guy named Pete Callan. Michael will be familiar with him. He's a European born and lives over there. Golf coach. He's worked with a lot of great players over the years very under the radar not on tv not you know being talked about a lot. He spent a little bit of time with Pete Cowan recently justed fix things a little bit and boy did it look right yesterday? He looked great yesterday sounds like the antithesis of his old coaches work in the range every event. Yeah. That's why I said. Yes. Well, there are some guys who do that. Some guys want to get famous they want. There's nothing wrong nothing wrong. It's just different styles. One other question which is tiger who makes an appearance here they're tiger will obviously play in the PGA without playing this week. I did what do we think of that? Yeah, I don't know. Last time we spoke He had not played any of those first few events right and I said if he doesn't horrible then that means he's not healthy that something's wrong. Well, he did play the memorial didn't play great. But how do you expect to go out there when you're so rusty and not and perform well and he performed okay put nothing. Great. The long, GAP BETWEEN STARTS CAN'T BE DELAYED. For his consistency over four rounds his back is is going to be a problem, the rest of his career if he's healthy and can play four consecutive days freely, he's going to have a chance to win but occasionally, and we saw that a memorial a couple of weeks ago if the back acts up Tony he has no chance. Now next week most likely will be cool weather in San. Francisco would prefer it to be hot and humid because it loosens up that back however that we're thinking about tigers. So Great that he can win anytime. You want those champions these eighty second. Victory late last year in Tokyo he hadn't start deadbeat a start on the PGA tour in months. So he knows how to win inbetween long gaps of playing at the highest level but. I just don't see four consecutive days at harding park from from Tiger against the best players in the world of them who have performed and played at the highest level. The last few weeks to GET READY FOR NEXT IT'S So, different only, and you know this to practice at home. It's so different than actually playing inside the ropes with no fans it's a different still that entity that Adrenalin playing with that kind of so different I do not expect him to be in contention on Sunday after having said that he's obviously a fabulous player, he could do it. I. Just don't think having these long gaps between starts. I just don't think that that's a good recipe right now for. The also being generous when you say it'll be cool in San Francisco. It could be actually cold in August in San Francisco cold and really bluster. Thank you. We will talk to you next year so. The. Shamba weakened pairing at Audi grand more and tells, yeah, that'd be gone by the way. They're afraid on Thursday and Friday. The PJ of America gotTa put them together and actually don't they Michael They have to but they won't they're afraid that you. GotTa do it man? Let's give the people what they want. Let's sit. I, we'll talk to you next week. Thank you Steve. Daycare Steve Sand spending money in in Delaware. We will come back with Richard Justice when we return I'm Tony Kornheiser, this is the Tony Kornheiser. Show. This is a new read them. For this summer is here and that means warm weather backyard barbecues and lawn games maybe a different here which are great except when they leave my lawn full of brown spots in wheats. If we're being honest I'm not what you'd call it long guy except I'd really like to be in this is for Sunday lawn care. Services, and if you remember I, love nothing more than watering Liz. Laughs at me because I get full firemen pose hose over the shoulder and I, call it hand what I gotta hand water the launch because no, you're just watering the lawn and hand watering and then little booster comes out and he makes the sands we go through the lawn. So I went onto the Sunday website, which is very easy to find you type in your home address, and they actually do a soil report right there and they an overview of your yard and they actually put into simple terms. Your lawn is less than one tennis court. Heard it I. Yeah. It puts out plainly. But they do what they like a rapid soil test and then they send out what your law needs based on the area and they let you go even more micro because they send you a soil test kit. Swear my right now I have taken. A sample, cut your lawn. They help you grow your not help you cut. You're not landscaper. No, they helped my law nine. Best. So they send me the first bag of nutrients, which is going my lawn green up. Wow and I have to wait five lights at this. Oh I sort of porno. You can take because my lawn gets brown because the dog goes out on the. Well that was an interesting question. They ask you on the website he's going to file. You want this month mostly for for use because it's pet friendly is for your kids and I circled D I, want my lawn to be the envy of the neighborhood s and what's great is one of our neighbors occasionally listens to this show and I want him to know I'm talking about him. So. Sunday explained exactly what I was getting more importantly, they explained why and I didn't have to be a long care expert to understand. So again, I'm in the early stages of this, I'm waiting to give it its first feeding in between these storms. But I'll keep you updated. I thought I needed expensive equipment or a green thumb to make my grass healthy again. But now they're gonNA take care of it. So here's the call to action. You don't need to know everything about soil grass or micro nutrients to have a great lawn. So if you're not one hundred percent, sure what's your law needs to be green no worries just get Sunday visit get Sunday Dot Com for twenty dollars off your summer plan when you use Promo Code Tony Kaye Twenty at checkout get Sunday dot. Com Promo Code Tony Kaye Twenty for twenty dollars off your summer plan. Good job. Thanks. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. Kornheiser show. We. Once again, this is Patrice Hawthorne. A former peaches, peaches in her. Are Lyle of Minneapolis writes us while there has been only one herb fame. There have been seven different peaches over the years. Patrice. Hawthorne became the Fourth Peaches in nineteen ninety she performed in concert with her until a fifth peaches was selected in two thousand and two Patrice Hawthorne's towns clearly obvious. But she is the peaches that was francine Baker after a couple of years of performing with her Baker semi retired and was replaced by Marlene Mack on the Road Baker. Fully retired from the duo in one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy they go back a long time as a result her took several years off and spend time as a DC COP whoa heard was a DC COP returned to Music in Nineteen, seventy, six with peaches number three, Linda Green, they recorded shake your groove thing and reunited reunited and it feels so good before teaming up with thorn herb took another break from music and again turned to law enforcement this time of the US Marshall Service as a court security officer. This is fascinating to learn her music is spectacular. You can hear it in its entirety at the end of the show and don't be cowed by how good she is. If you WANNA send us your original music. Michael How do you do so industry music by emailing it to Jingles at Tony, Quinn as a show dot com peaches and herb, and to think that herb was DC cop. Richard Justice joins us now of MLB DOT COM. If you pick five professions for herb and peaches and herb, you never would have gotten to DC COP Right Ritchie never I would not have but you know what I know about. DC. COPS is always the first one to when I covered the redskins always the ones that wanted coach Joe to change quarterbacks. Exactly. I've had enough of this guy ripped. Quote he was the Super Bowl Mvp that was last year. I Megapolis read reminded me of our mutual friend Bud Shaw. The former Cleveland plain dealer. He said, he used to sit in the press box and look up and down and go I'm going to write the best column in if I'm GonNa be better than any of these SOB's. Transition five or six years later, he would look down on each side and go well, at least I've got the best yard. That's good. That's funny I. We're going to get to the Marlins, but before we get to the Marlins I, think we've got to get to the phillies because this this seems to be an abundance of caution unless there's something out there that I don't know. I don't think it's an abundance of caution I, think it's what you have to do when in this virus because it is. So transmission of all if that's a word that there is a fear that you you know, I mean the infection rate is exponential. So it is out of abundance of caution, but it is what you have to do for instance. the cubs are in. Cincinnati, they're supposed to play a five o'clock central game. It is raining in Cincinnati. What Anthony Rizzo tweeted and one of the things that's come out of this whole era of pro sports is players have a voice Anthony Rizzo tweeted. You care about our safety, but you're GONNA have us in this airless room for eight hours with each other. When you tell us, you want US confined to our rooms and you know in outside at the Ballpark the game was called after thirty minutes and it makes me wonder did Anthony Rizzo tweets have an impact on the cubs rookie second baseman yesterday Nick Nicole Horner said. I do two things I go to my hotel room, and then I go to the ballpark and the one thing they've told us is you can't go anywhere everywhere you go you risk infection. And I think what happened with the Marlins? and. Now to see to. Phillies, members of the Phillies Coaching Apple. Is is a cautionary tale. This thing is a wildfire and try to get a season in. You have to be cautious cautious cautious, and you still don't know if it's going to be enough. So now what seems to me true is something I hadn't considered before, which is that people will play an uneven number of games that this will pop up here and they are not just in the east and people will play an uneven number of games. Do you accept that? As fact is well, you have no choice. The marlins are two and one. Six, six, seven, win here in. Yeah. They're in the playoffs they get in they don't have to play again There's no choice on that. That's why they decided yesterday to play the seven inning doubleheaders. Look everybody it's easy in the and I know you don't live in the twitter verse the Media World, it's easy to say shut it down. The this this thing there was a decision made when wouldn't rudy, Gobert tested positive pro sports in the country was basically shut down as baseball prepare to return the reality was we're going to have players test positive. That's why we have sixty player pool and so how are we going to deal with that? The reality though is when you have a couple of a marlins test positive then a couple more than a couple of more. Your your your instinct is to be afraid and to say that's it. That's enough. Let's go home, but the effort is going to be we're going if possible we're going to play and where we're GONNA have to deal with this whack a mole someone called it on a daily basis and it's scary. It is scary. Is there any sense? As to win the MARLINS might get back. No and I don't know that there's a sense of the phillies are going to win. The phillies are going to get back I think they're gonNA. Is it I You know they're gonNA try. There's not a full slate of games on the schedule until. Wednesday well, what are the nets getting off now five days or something yeah? Yeah. So. Yeah. So four teams won't be playing this weekend they made up the Yankees and Orioles on the fly the the other part of it is. And I know you watch a lot. The gains have been really good spin grist to have I heard you say. The. I thought I'd hate it. I loved it. Loved it. Found myself just immersed in mets games and raise games just because we want it back but This virus is part of our lives now. So I was GonNa made the note that at least it's the same division with the Marlins in the phillies. But that's sort of that's crazy optimism thinking that it won't be did it won't show up in the Midwest or the West I'm being crazy Arna. Yeah. Yeah. It's. It's everywhere I mean it's all over. You don't know you know I mean there's one case the CDC believes guy. Swears through contract contact tracing he got it from touching a salt shaker now and I would say this. And a lot of ways. Baseball's being a model. How do what are what are the? What are the best best? Intelligence on controlling you test test test you wear a mask you do your best to social distance baseball done that in other than no players other than Marlins have tested positive but you you're never you're never out of the woods on this thing you're never. I'll say one of the unintended consequences I sent this tape to Nigel they you can hear everything that's said in a ballpark. And the other day when Joe Kelley throwing it the whole yeah. Here. Yeah. Here dusty Baker's thoughts on the matter. Della I will get to Kelly in the second I, just want to get to this one thing, I? Okay. Because we're watching basketball and hockey is about to start and they are in bubbles baseball I don't think can be in a bubble, but we just heard Steve Sands talk about golf in the you know and they try to be as bubbled up as possible. Is there anything further with baseball that that will restrict player movements to a degree that it will resemble a bubble? That's what they're trying. But when you have to get on planes and you have to go to hotels and you do have to get you know get back to the Niko Horner were saying yesterday I just do hotel ballpark said, well, buddy you do have to get from the ballpark from the hotel to the Ballpark someway and you're going to come in contact with other people. Floated the original idea of having bubbles, Arizona Bubble Florida Tech yes. Bubble. But the players just said you're you cannot ask us. To Go, away from our family for four four months, we're not going to do that and also I don't think logistically the schedule it was it was too hard. It was not going to work out. I think they can. Rob Manfred and the Union of considered every scenario and they've decided if it can work. This is the best way to do is a perfect. No, it's not perfect and it's scary and all of that. Let me get you brought up Joe Kelley. We'll abundant. I talked about this yesterday. Players are very, very supportive of Joe Kelley because players are very very angry at the Astros. I thought he at three and you cannot throw that pitch two Bregman and you can't just try and and just taunt career in the way that he did and then be so incredibly mouth my God I mean this was this is Joe. Kelly's war that clearly was was condoned. By Dave Roberts, which is why he went out for a game, what are your thoughts on that and going forward what will happen with the Astros? Well, let me just say this Joe Kelly is a really really good person and a respected veteran member of the baseball community and I think when you're going to do something like that, you almost have to have a guy. That everybody likes and everybody respects, and also a guy that you know what he's doing. They know what he's doing. We all know what he's doing. You know he threw behind now you know and you can say this this comes up one hundred times you shouldn't have thrown at his head at Bregenz head. You know that was a curb ought to. B. Be. Beyond that but you and I covered you know Nolan Ryan Bob. Gibson. Those guys threw up any and that's all the time tend to air it. Do I agree with you? No I was once after a game in Comiskey Park early, win and Don Drysdale in the bar back behind the press box got into a big argument about where is the best place to hit a guy one said the ribs wanted the by and That's that's the reality you would rather them throw down but guys are going to do what they're gonNa do let's just hope no one gets hurt I think the it's not going to be the last time you don't. You don't think it's over even though this is in effect a twenty, two game suspension. Set. A very harsh suspension but. and. Matt and that's the minimum now. Frank Robinson used to be in charge of discipline guy would throw inside frank would suspended for twenty games in the in the IMO they. Frankie. Frankie can't do that twenty that's too much and he go. Okay. Thirty Games. That was pitchers frank had a different look pitchers. I don't know I mean I can't imagine. It's going to be the last time in anytime a pitch comes inside. We're going to interpret it as a message. The Astros are in Anaheim today and You know we'll see that was going to be the first road trip Oakland in Anaheim and the original schedule and with the crowds there they were getting you're gonNA find out what people are gonNA get a referee living referendum on what they did in two thousand seventeen. Well I think baseball has said it's an eight K. minimum now, and if you throw at them again I think baseball's position is we've punished the team enough and I think players positions are you haven't punish the players at all right? Yeah. But I think you still have to go back to the circumstances one guy ratted the astros out that was my fires get to the bottom of it. Rob Manfred said I'm going to give the players WanNa know what went on and It's Hey, what happened here? It has stained the franchise forever. Absolutely to Richie. Thank you so much. We'll talk to you soon. Thanks. Which Justice instead we? Were guest oriented now but if you have sands and Richie and the other day if you have windhorst Passan. It works out. We will take a break.

If not, I could not more highly recommend going back and giving it a listen. That is a professional. So this is important. You don't even have to listen to the podcast just go back to the end of it and listen to Patrice Auburn and from Jim Flynn in Colebrook. Connecticut on the same topic Tony I'm disappointed I thought you were peaches. Grant Maguire who is the father-in-law of River Iris? Another great singer Grand Maguire is sending US wine Michael from bells up isn't that nice sending us wine we have wine. We're so happy to have. No Shame I. Well, I. Didn't ask you this what I mean it was nice gift. Shipping him a couple of thank you, bottles. From bells up winery, the two, thousand, seventeen, tight, and the two, thousand, seventeen candied. Great we've already got those. We're happy Jeff Boyd in Pittsburgh. It seems as if the number of solutions to your tomato and squirrel problems is larger than the number of tomatoes but I've yet to hear anyone state the obvious squirrel or any animal is hungry. They look for food your tomatoes fit the bill in the furry little ones are amazingly adept at finding ways to avoid obstacles. Here's the bottom line. All species share one instinct survival into animals the first and foremost aspect of survival is food. Don't eat you won't live. Your problem will be rectified by making sure the Squirrel has enough food. So the tomato is no longer part of their food quest. They love sunflower seeds cheap by a ten pound bag and spread them into your yard away from the plants. Preferably near some trees do not put into a dish or a pile, make them comb the grass for them. They will eat for hours and ignore your tomatoes. Can you explain to people what has happened tomato plant we already did. The tomato. Oh it did it fell again keeps but this is a great idea sunflower seeds. We should try the season. One's a little ranch. Let's see if they're happy if that makes him more. From Tim Simpson the senior pastor at the Green Ridge Baptist Church I've a funny Squirrel Story to share that came to mind as I heard about your tomato problems more than ten years ago I needed to have a huge joked tree cut down and removed from our backyard that tree had been a playground and resort for lots of squirrels through the years I happen to be in the backyard the morning after the tree was hauled away running from left to right across my backyard fence to treat a shed to squirrels suddenly had A. Crisis when the lead squirrel came to a screeching halt at the end of the shed roof he realized that huge was gone stunned in disbelief. He turns to his friends with human like look on his face of what the heck the second squirrel had to get a look from self and then did the same thing I turned back with that what the heck look. Suddenly the frisky carefree morning had been ruined. They slumped back the other way still muttering headed for a better place with tomatoes from Joe Arrow of course, from elegant city in. Maryland my car's five years old with under fifty thousand miles. I never miss maintenance checkups. Oil Changes One day about six weeks ago I started to my morning coffee. It felt like it was running on half an engine and the lights started flashing. I had told to my mechanic in about four hours later he called me and he asked me if I had a squirrel problem squirrels are always running in front of the house between the two big trees and under the car never even thought about that back in her heyday my cat would. Carve up about ten of them every summer and leave the remains under our front porch swing. But she's fifteen now no longer goes outside. So apparently, there's a box on the underside of the rear of the car that squirrels chewed through. That caused my car to run on half the cylinders than it usually does the little squirrel prank cost me almost two hundred dollars plus twenty dollars for the peppermint liquid mixture that my mechanic advise me to buy this spray underneath the back of the car every few days isn't that interesting from David Marzo? In Manassas Virginia. Thank you for continuing the podcast. You continue to make my day. It was always a thrill when I refresh my podcast list and see a new episode of the show up here, and we have three this week to notes to pass along even with that pitch I would prefer seeing Anthony Fauci coming out of the pen then wander swearing. And I'd like to think I've accomplished a lot in my years twenty years in the military PhD four great kids. But one of the things I'm proudest of as my social security number has every digit from one to nine keep up his great work and please stay safe if you're out in your bike, everyone is always do wear white I hate squirrels.

"Snow Angels in April"

"Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show. It's four Pete. I'm on the right side. It's port be dead in its four dead in. I got the last part of that round one guy. There's two people who make and won miss. And now it's for me to go back out one more time, and I miss I hit. I thought I'd get a great. But again, I hit it to the right and guide comes up to be later and says you take any time on that part at all and fates tiger. Thanks. This is General George Washington. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser. Alrighty, then we're live at chatter, which is at the corner of Jennifer street northwest and Wisconsin avenue northwest full service for profit restaurant emphasis on the full service and the four Brock. There's really nothing else emphasizing that particular comment, and we're open now. We've got David Aldridge here, and Tori Clarke here. Michael Kornheiser here Nigel's here to run the board produce the show do the news. But Nigel is leaving us on Friday. Where are you going priding? I have a court hearing taking a slight vacation take vacation. Vacation actually going down to Florida to see leopard. It's ten, but you never know. So so Nigel said, you don't we sort of agreed not to do a Friday show yesterday. Karen is taking orders, and it's in our ears because it's orders. By the way, she's at the table count is at the table with Joe arrow and Steve Lipton who are fabulous performance. Everybody should get to two of her best. If a Karen, right Karen's birthday. Take care. So where am I? So you're gonna take off and I decided not to do the show. But now I've decided to do the PTI. So I may as well do the show. So we'll bring in subsidy produce and Michael will do the news Michael has knows how to check them my flight and see. No, no, no, go on your trip. Have a good time. Tom get your plane right on time. I know. Do we have the producer's name is Wallace pip? Do we have the Cinco de Maya menu? This is this is our special menus Friday. I'm sorry Saturday and Sunday this week Komeito, which means food. Yes. There's chicken too key. Does there so pace which are not Filipino soup as Chris cillizza ridiculously said yesterday, there's soul a Verde dig polio. Which is a green sauce chicken there. Chiro fries bananas foster Chimi Changa and nachos dul say and the Chiro fries and the nachos. Dul say are are adorned with Mexican chocolate dipping sauce, which is to our restaurant. What corn syrup is to Bud Light. Yes. Or Miller lite or cores light or whichever one uses it. We're favor of corn syrup because for three hundred years. Everybody used it and we are in favour of Mexican chocolate dipping sauce. There are Margaritas. There are dizzy fizzy rita's which. Cuervo traditional silver tequila, fresh lime juice mint simple syrup, and Teijin rum. That's nine bucks. That's great. There's bottled beer, corona and Modell, all the twelve ounces or five bucks. That's really good for a right, Michael. That's good. Sure. Five bucks and the thirty two ounce. Corona familiar is nine bucks thirty two ounces. If you do the math twelve times three is thirty six thirty two is close to thirty six. Yes. So that would be fifteen dollars worth of beer on the regular bottles. But only nine dollars on Saturday and Sunday at chatter in other news from Denison university from Mike Croly, Michael please, explain my Croly micro is a freelance writer who works mostly in the Gulf space, but also in the travel world in the travel world as well any rights enclosed, you'll find a copy of my short story collection any other place. I'm aiming to be the official short story writer of both the podcast and chatter since we all know that literary fiction, especially short fiction is Luke. Has owning restaurant. I became a fan of yours. When PTI first premiered later found the show when I worked at a deadening job in Richmond Virginia that literally required me to cut and paste company descriptions into an access database Reginald could perform the task better than I since. Most of my morning was eaten up listening to you and looking for other jobs on the internet after brief eighties of listening to you over the air. I'm happy to have the podcast, and you and your crew friends back in my life. It's been a great source of enjoyment and a bonding point for my older, brother. Tim shout out in me. I'm hoping with a push from your show and its legion of Little's literally baby. I'll be able to have a reading politics and prose and finally be the lone author who can get to the bottom of why they shut down your dry cleaner or maybe, Tori. We'll just take pity on me and have me on her show to talk about books, including my own. The other copy of my book is inscribed. Michael has been kind and friendly to me talking golf the last year. I believe more golf less hockey is a winning formula for the podcast, meaning unleash, Michael so politics and prose, by the way in the news. Not simply for. Or closing my dry, cleaner and ruining my life. Not simply for that was rude. But for having they had a guide to a book, talk and white nationalism Nazi show. Yeah. They showed up and tried through megaphones to shout. Everybody down. Does this story in the post today, I handled it very well, Bradley Graham who was worked at for many many years. So I commend that story to you. But yes, yes, micro only can indeed be the officials short short short story writer, and Tori. This is a segue absolutely to into chatter on books who did you have last night? How was it? Did we have a good crowd industry? We had a crowd the beginning. I'm not sure where they all went. But we had a very good show. All others four. There was all the others. We had four of the authors of a book called. Yes, she Cam just ten stories of ten young women who worked in the Obama White House, and we had Andrea I'm going to get this, right and Nita and kalija and Taylor and one smarter and funnier and more engaging than the next. They were really good and really interesting, and we had a really good debate about whether or not it's ever okay to ban. Books generally, not good show. Well, what did you decide generally not only that doesn't that doesn't mean? That specific Michael the smart one at the table. Professor Kornheiser was talking about how Innis the there's a difference in in school. You have to think not about banning books, but what books are appropriate, and what books can you really use in work with to teach people, correct? Yeah. No. We were trying to figure out always making sure you have a why as to why you're teaching something or you're introducing it to a group of students or an age, but we're really trying to figure out the question ban is we ban such specific word why you might want to use that word or that idea over just introducing books at a certain staged or procreate time. So no that that that ended up being interesting with with the young woman who came in. It was the first time I felt excited about listening to political talk. There was still an energy that had not seen in this city a longtime. Yeah. Energy and passion, and they all work. They work for Barack. Geico Bama or Michelle Obama, Barack Obama. Okay. Yeah. Areas places and various positions and yet they were absolutely delightful. And we thought it was gonna be difficult to have four of them. But he got great cooked Nigel crackdown. The loss. Knew very well. Good. Monday. And this was this was marks idea. And I believe Michael your idea Abby Maslin young woman from Washington DC. Her husband several years ago, tragic accident he was attacked coming home from nets game and beaten badly brains severe brain injury. And she's written a story about what they went through his injury. What their marriage went through? It's really very very compelling. And she's on next week. There's too much of that. There's too much at sporting events. Now the guy at the dodger giants. There's just two people get angry, and they get drunk, and they pick on people and leave them in the parking lot for debt, you know. And that happens with a sort of increasing rate now at games, and it's just they're cutting off the hall, sooner sooner. Yeah, you know, this was this was a straight up rubbery. This is on his way home. It was Jayme related. Yeah. All right. Let me get into the actual show here. Which is we'll start with the NBA Philadelphia. This I will say the surprise me I have to pay attention to this because we do a television show, and we'll Bonn is in love with basketball. And so I have to have to be aware of cognizant of what's going on which was not hard with the Golden State Houston game, which I thought was a great game last night. I I sort of got out of this game because Philadelphia was up by a lot early by the end of the first quarter and into the second quarter, and I drifted away and went back to the nets game. And so I missed a lot of this. I will say I am surprised. I'm surprised that Philadelphia won this game. I understand that in the second round of all playoffs. It is more competitive than the first round. And so you you don't often see for four one in the second one you do but not often. But in this game, I didn't think that anybody could cover co Leonard. And in fact, co I Leonard had thirty five points. But it was pointed out pretty early in the game that Philadelphia win. Leonard went to the middle which he likes to do two and three people got his attention. So although he had thirty five he had to work for the thirty five. And what let Toronto down was they had Marcus Sahlin Danny green played sixty seven minutes got eight points. Their bench got two baskets too baskets the whole game. Well, David a well earned victory for Philadelphia. Surprised me you like you said second the only eight teams, and they're all good. So surprise, you would've wins. You know, so no they play. Well, they played very well. They did did a really good job of not just making quite work for his baskets. But they didn't turn the ball over as much Toronto. Didn't have nearly as many transition fraternities as they had in the first game, which is really their strength. Danny green did not shoot the ball. Well, had a chance to tie the game. Actually, Ricky Rubio shot hit nothing. Yeah. Wide open three to tie the game up at the end and didn't didn't make it. So but Philly played much much better thought Ben Simmons played much much better than he didn't game one and Jimmy Butler showed up. I mean, he didn't shoot the ball rate. But he was much more engaged in the moment in the game and scored thirty and hit a couple of big baskets late when they were hanging on Embiid. Embiid hit NBA, so they plan in laughed and his press conference as he does every single very scatalogical. Description of why he wasn't feeling well, Google it. If you want, but they played much better and Phillies a good team. Now there I don't think they're effort comes and goes their their focus comes and goes if that makes any sense, and so they were focused last night and play much better and Toronto didn't play as well as they played in game. Now, they did not sorry that I was a little bit surprised. Maybe I'm not supposed to be. But I was the other series is a series in the west in the in the lunch time forgot this is the series that if this was the NCAA's this is the series that would be on. Tru TV this is the one that nobody wants to see because Golden State and Houston is compelling sucks. The air out of the Western Conference. However, and I mean, I'm not going to watch this because most of those games are going to be on very very late. They do introduce you to players and the guards and Portland have been around a long time. But they don't don't get a lot of run. Because they start their games that seven ten thirty in the west and Denver Denver is a team where you can't you gotta be a fan to name the people on Denver. But they got this kid in the middle Nicoli Yokich who's very beefy sorta guy and God, he's good. He's really good. He he doesn't dunk. He lays the ball over on off the rim. He had last night thirty seven nine, and you don't have been who he is. No who. You have to be a basketball fan who know, David. Yes. Damian Lillard they're both very well school. He's he's he's from over there. I would get it wrong. So I would say Croatia. But I'll get some general. Louis mangas. It's good. It's a very compelling series between two very good teams, and people are very interested in your not interested into that's fine Sangram. Nobody's interested. Erica big basketball. If you ranked the series in terms of star power, you would rank this fourth Golden State and Houston would be one. I suspect alternately that Boston. The walkie would be to the Philadelphia Toronto would be three. And this would be for the thing about Denver is they were the easiest team to say, well, they'll lose in the first round. Well, they didn't and people need to remember. They finished second and for a long period of time. They were ahead of golden status. So very whoever comes out of this series. And I think this is Barclays point wherever comes out of this series is going to face a team in either Golden State or Houston that is emotionally depleted. Yes. Because that's that's. That's duke. Michigan state. Sure. And so the team that the Denver team or the Portland team twelve thinks and said so before the playoffs start that Portland was going to come out of the west. Well, again, they're very good team with very good players. They may and Lillard is a all league. You know, second team all NBA probably this year. So I mean, these these are star players don't now. Well, they. Yeah. I mean, I understand Charlton's point. But that doesn't mean that Houston Golden State wouldn't be favored because they went, and well, they should because they've done it before they bring they're used to playing emotional Golden State. Sure. Sure. And so they're used to it. And so, but it was a great game last night. I stayed up stupidly and watch the whole game. But it was a really good game between those teams, and it will be a really good series teams. I didn't watch. That's just me. We'll take a break. We'll come back. Jason lockenfora CBS will join us. I guess we will sort of wrap up the draft. If there's not allowed to do this on wilpon will not he will not engage. We will not engage. He will say the draft is stupid all reaction to the draft is stupid part of that is his belief that it's stupid. So that the NBA is more important. Pairs did not have a pick in the first. Mitchell Trubisky so sore. Draft. Everybody knows that. All right. So we'll take a break. We'll come back with Jason. I'm telling Kornheiser. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. Tony kornheiser. This is the books ad for mother's day. Don't know how long we're going to have this Pook sad. Because of the way I'm going to read it.

Nice. This is the Tony Kornheiser show. For twenty six years of slow. Joe arrow Steve Lipton can appreciate how good MRs they're real. This is Tim Wildsmith Nashville Tennessee song bones from his album, little armor. He said I sat down to write one day. And this song came out of matter of minutes when my girlfriend at the time asked if it was about her I did with songwriters have done for generations. I told her that was. This show, please give my best to the guy. That's a great Email and tells the story of rock and roll Tim Wildsmith playing in Jason lockenfora of CBS. Let's talk about the draft. Because thank God you will in wilpon. I I'm going to assume that the overall headline was Murray is that the most important thing in the draft. You have something else. I mean, I think it's the quarterback. So we can try to over think it I could sit here and try to give you a cute dancer and be real men. But like, it's the most important position. And there's a lot of drama and intrigue and subterfuge about them. And. I, you know, I think Murray has all the talent in the world and could be very successful. But you know, a quarterback of that size. There's there's not. There's not a ton of of empirical evidence to say they can succeed. There's not that many that have so that adds intrigue to it and makes an incredibly interesting. I mean this kid's a top ten pick in two sports. You've got no cliff. Kingsbury air raid is that going to work on Sundays, and then the corollary to that is obviously they Josh Rosen out a calendar year after moving up two tenths overall TIMMY would no conviction to draft them. And then obviously you throw in Daniel Jones and Gettleman and now he's under siege. In New York, understandably, so and you know, the Redskins take another crack at it. And then Elway finally gets his guy at the top of of day to so. Yeah, I think that will probably go a long way to telling the tale of this draft. What did you think of the way rose in went to Miami? With that lovely video just really really nice. You don't you're not only don't often. See you don't see it at all. What did you think of that? And I guess more importantly to his career if he had come out this year where I have been. I I you know, I mean how good is he he's definitely picked before number sixty two. I mean if you the Miami Dolphins. Whether he works out or not, I think that you have to nobody knows right? Nobody knows or the first fifty picks would I'll be home months here. Here. Right. It'd be the fifty best players out of the two hundred eighty or whatever. So the reality is we don't know. So I think what you have to analyze is the processes, and the, you know, the the sort of think tank that went behind this. And and where were they coming from and as groupthink, or is it somebody doing their own thing? And where was the value? And and is there sort of a method to the madness if you're Miami, and you really probably like next year's quarterback class more. But you're able to do your thing on Thursday night. And then on Friday, you're able to pick up extra picks from New Orleans for the future. Which is what it's all about the future. They're not the president and get last year's tenth pick at pick sixty two and the young man didn't get arrested. He didn't he you know, he didn't beat somebody up. He didn't lose his job. He he didn't throw a tirade. You know? He didn't throw a coach under the bus. He didn't demand trait. He just got caught up in the wash of an organization that was completely rudderless and adrift and was a mess from the general manager on down through the entire roster. You know, head coach included coordinators included. So if I'm by me, and I could buy that loan. Josh rosen. Yeah, it's a complete no brainer. I think the teams that should be kicking themselves right now the team Cincinnati. You'd takes a project tight end in the second round. And then, you know, Finley NC state top of the fourth to probably career backup at best. Why would they not take a flyer? Josh Rosen for less than two million dollars a year. You've got his rights for at least three more years, and he may be better than any don't. I don't wanna like overly dwell on this but cliff Kingsbury, I mean, he he's got a losing record in college. I know he had Patrick Mahomes. That's a great credential because that kid is fabulous. But they are they gave him everything everything. And as you say, and I wish Carla Murray all the best. But if he gets hit hard, I mean, everybody chasing everybody in the Washington area thinks of Robert Griffin just cannot help but think of Robert Griffin and kings berries. What do you make that? Well, the office of line was a complete failure last year. I don't see how it's markedly better. Now, they would say well, yeah. But it's a different type of quarterback into different types of you know, there's protection built in and there's his escape ability and all those things, but that's also when you get into trouble. When when you know when you when you do absorb some kill shots. It's when. You're outside the pocket one in around trying to extend place. We just don't know. I mean. We don't. I mean, the one thing I think that bodes well for him this. He has that baseball background three was attract guy. He was a straight. He didn't have the wiggle. He ran into kill shots. This kid is like a smaller. I say smaller like in the trunk more than like size because Russell Wilson's obviously. No behemoth when he to me is is got more. Russell Wilson them and knows when to slide in his natural slider knows how to get out of bound, and and and just has more side to side lateral looseness. I think he's a different type of athlete than RG three who was like a hurdler. But, but we just don't know. I mean, it's I think it's improved football team. But if he gets hurt, you know, what I mean God forbid a week four we five weeks six how much patience does ownership show there. I I don't know. Let me go to another quarterback quarterback. You know? Well, Joe flacco who has a marvelous record in playoffs mud. Hasn't done much last few years Denver. You know when John Elway signs him. He says he's just entering his prime and everything is great. And then he drafts this country. Lock is already in trouble in Denver. Yeah. He he had the same thing happened to two years in a row last year was picked thirty two this year took forty two doesn't for fly. It doesn't really matter in the end. Because while I think they want a red shirt drew lock if if. You know, Denver sitting there middle of the season. And it's a middling offense. And flat goes what he's been the last four five years, which is relatively beat up. Bottom five league and yards per attempt. Not super accurate. They're gonna make the change. You know, I just believe that because Elway in his heart of hearts, he looks at some of these prospects and season self and his love affair with drew lock was well documented for quite some time. You know, he's under some pressure to win games now because he's John Elway. And all the cash that comes with that particularly in that community. You get an incredibly wide swath to do your thing. And the fact that they don't really have an owner right now, certainly works in his favor. But yeah, they've got tight end. I right. And they feel like they have some pieces on offense not a whole lot of wide receiver. But they did run the ball filled. Lindsey. They have a good defense. They think they're going to win some football games. And if flacco. Looks rusty. And really the problem for flacco is now but for years since he got through a season. And I I don't know that that portends and ascending player or you know, somebody you can count on. He's certainly been beat up the last few years. I would say I if they play lock to suit they do so with trepidation because he's not ready. But my hunch is he plays football this year. Flacco goes from the frying pan to the fire place. The other Jason was there a draft you loved or draft. You hated where you'd say this team stupid knows doing. There was a lot. I liked there. Really were I found myself kind of nodding along a lot of these picks. And then you look at it within the context of what they'd already done and what their needs are. And with the market forces were, and and when the runs were coming on certain position groups, and you know, I kind of liked it a lot of teams New England. I really like what they did Baltimore. I really liked what they did. I love what Miami. Did. I even I love what Arizona did the kids got to be a player. But if you look at the totality of the draft. I think a lot of things fell the place for the deal out of things to teams stuck out his teams. I I didn't really like what they did Houston. How he rose for Philadelphia jumped them to get their tackle they panicked. This kid at Alabama state who who may be a great left tackle two three years from now. The problem is showed Watson maybe in a hospital bed vade need. How rightly big Dow. And they. Need to start winning games in January, and they made it known for weeks that we're going to move up where interested in moving up at somebody else moves up to take your tackle a couple of spots ahead of you down. And now the positions been been fairly picked through and you kind of reach a couple of times when you have immediate needs. And you know, your quarterbacks seriously injured two years in a row. I don't know about that one. I don't know. What is it Tampa as well? I know they love that linebacker, but they've got no outside pass rush. They didn't really address that they took some okay, you know, pieces for the back end of their defensive the defensive backfield. But nothing that stands out moving up. Take a kicker in the fifth round. You know, they took some projects. And that's another team Bruce Arians. I mean, he retired just a year ago because of health issues, you know, and now he's back after one year the booth, but he's trying to win. Right. Bleep it down. And I'm not sure how much better they are again, given Gerald McCoy away. I. I wasn't loving what they were doing. There wasn't overshadowing of the draft with the tyreek hill news. This is the second large star in a row for Kansas City to be involved in something. This has no video like Kareem hunt where where they cut him in twenty four hours. Where are we with tyreek hill, and and you know, what we're are. We with Kansas City will also signed Frank Clark was tossed out of the university of Michigan's football program for domestic violence. You can take it back a step further. I mean, this December first twenty twelve Giovane. Linebacker on their team, right chills. His girlfriend Cassandra Perkins goes to the team facility Neal's buying a car blows his brains out. You might think at that point. If you own the Kansas City Chiefs. Hey, I'm not sure I'm playing the football game. The next day. They did. But be you might think that at that point. Right. You huddle up and say, okay. No one saw that coming with this young man, but we can't ever go down that road again. So we're going to be super vigilant about individuals. With not gonna say character risks. But how about guys who have established histories of violence? Maybe we need to be super careful about who we bring in here. And let's try to go in a different direction. Even though no one saw this coming with with with Belcher. They've done these act opposite. They have had an open door policy with guys with characteristics. And even when they cut Kareem hunt. Go back and read the statement. It's not just not for what happened exclusively. Because he lied us about in the moment over how dairy it's not wait a minute. We can't have our best players kicking women in a hallway. They couldn't wait for tyreek hill situation to be adjudicated, or at least to get some clarity from the DA's office before they had a deal replace for Frank Clark. So what what what am I to believe about the Kansas City? I just I just know what I've seen for six and a half years now, which is an organization that continues to find itself in these situations due in large part because it's willingness to do things that will put them in this situation. Why is why wasn't tyreek hill cut a suit? As the thority said, we need to get this three year old away from him. He has no visitation rights even supervise we believe a crime was committed here. We're letting the mom see the child. With with supervision. We're not letting tyreek you'll see him at all. We don't know what we could prove right now. But if that like that wasn't enough to get cut immediately. You know, the audio of child saying that he did it. Wasn't enough. And they're introducing Frank Clark last Friday. Within what twelve hours the DA, saying reopening the case? So that I would what am I think of the Kansas City Chiefs. What matters and what does it matter? And I put all of that. And I wrote a column about this yesterday. I put it all quite hunt. The owner, he's the constant people. Like tyreek hill who punched his girlfriend in the face choked her and punched her in the stomach while she was pregnant in college. They don't get in the building and let the owner lets them in. He's awful lot of draft board. He was drafted in Kansas City. So what's the league going to do all venture put him on a Commissioner's exemplifies to some other such designation to try to, you know, put this on the back burner for awhile? But I mean, I believe in second chances and all that stuff. But but. Tyreek hill has no place in the NFL. I hope nobody if this is all the biggest hoax around in which case, I'm assuming we're gonna hurt from his lawyer by now, right? If that's not his voice, if this is Dr I'm sure we would have heard something by now. I hope he has no place in the NFL ever. Again. I can't imagine. He's back in Kansas City. But if you're if you cut him Wednesday, Tony can the owner now having just given Frank Clark over sixty million guarantees, can you now come out and say what we take this very seriously zero policy was your talking about how do you walk? All this like, how do you visit continuum there, and I'm not blaming him for these actions. But when does the Wendy you go out of your way to try to sure you get away from these people? They certainly haven't done that. How is the dog has copper? He's he's resting here on me right now. He's doing all right. I can't complain. That's better than the podcast these days, and I don't know what a little bit hiatus. I was gonna say. I was going say, where's you podcast? I talk to Jerry Coleman. We speaking. We gotta have everything. Come in here any day you want. I appreciate any. Thank you. Post draft. Thank you, Jason lockenfora who actually is not that I get stopped. But if people talk to me about the podcast, if there's any guests they mentioned, it's Jason they love Jason lock. And that's why I love that. He's still so passionate great.

This is the Tony Kornheiser show. This is from Sarah, Kurt who writes since we were last touch a lot as change back in January gave birth to twins, and Leo to helping me write this Email and imagine getting back into swing of things in terms of performing discovering, my new identity as a musician and a new mom, I thought I'd drop a line. Let Tony know about a fun local show coming up that I think would be totally up his alley if he can drink enough to stay away on may eleventh may eleventh is coming up in two weeks from Saturday. I'll be joining seventeen of DC's top vocalists to perform Joni Mitchell's blue and Bob Dylan's blood on the tracks in their entirety. His shows produced by new Meyer flyer, and that'll be at the Hamilton. That's downtown free. Tissues at the door, fun fact producer Ronnie new Meyer, really sent you a new mail bag thing that you've used a couple of times anywhere. Appreciate the continued support and be awesome. Tony mentioned the show to the locals every time you play some of my music on the podcast listeners who come out to shows. I love meeting them and discovering the connection. This is from her album or so it seemed and this is a song called what do I know? Inspired by the many, stupid, sexist comments. As a female musician, which is so lovely if people like Sarah curtain. If they want to have their music played on this show in its entirety at the end of the broadcast, which is usually better than the entire broadcast to skip to that. How do they do? So Michael, send us your music by emailing it to jingles at Tony Quinn other show dot com and the Hamilton is a great place. Yes. Yes. That's downtown Washington DC. Yes. And that is we'll plug that again because that's may may eleventh. Yeah. Week from Saturday. Okay. Do you have news? Yeah. I just wanna point out to Mike Crowly who is now the officials short story fiction, author college went to college. There's no copy for me. There's no gifts as tribute for me the book, that's a mistake. Yeah. That's gonna make good with me. Yeah. Yeah. But we love Denison. And we're very happy to have him on board. Tony has stone out with baseball stone of wealth for the nets last night. Did not end. Well, they the bullpen didn't blow it. Yeah. They score on the 'nother manager would have taken the pitcher now earlier six. Runs in the fitted. Yes. Yes. Hit hit hit hit. And they lose six three by the way. This is after and I was driving home by two outs blame Nigel entirely for this. When we are driving home from the book show, walk a walks in a run the pitcher walked walk. How graded bat get. Great it bad. So I look at look at Nigel saying, you might have to come over if the ship turns this, and I did not so wild pitch. Four hits Corbin was out there a long time in the fifth and nobody came in to help him out. Nobody relieved now usually say, well you you hate the bullpen. I do eight the bullpen your starter is it's working. Yeah. It's it's so clear that it's not working at that point. You gotta get out of that inning. They were up three that. It's only runs were only scored in eighteen possible. Half innings runs were only scoring two at some point. Don't you have to say it looks like the other benches picked something up in your delivery because they were hitting him hard. You know, I this is going to be a recurring theme for me at some point. But I don't know that the manager is on top of the circumstances. I just don't even those who are not major sports experts. I might be able to guess at that stage the game time to take this guy out. Why would he possibly leave him in? He's rate lefty starter spent a lot of money on each drawn to be eligible for the w you want to try and give your cleaning and you have to get through the fifth inning. It was the fifth end. This is a four-game stretch. And then you're going up to Philadelphia again, they lose the first clean meaningful series nine. And so yes, we've had two two outings where the bullpen has been spotless. But what is this? What is the impact going forward over the next six games that are still very important games? So sorting out the bullpen possible turnaround. The berry spoke of today. Will you had the chance when the eighth inning? You have bases loaded. Two outs and your favorite second baseman, Brian dosier. Who's now, I think kidding up close to one nine ninety. Pops up weekly goes out quietly pops up daily. Team. And I understand that. I understand that this show is a local by turns. I watched their games. I look at that team. I I don't have a whole lot of confidence that the right move is made at the right time. And that includes pinch hitting for people that seems one moved to late. Yeah. That's learning. How to win the last war? That's already been formed. Just that it's so early in the season in early and you can't make any judgments because it's really I think you can't get in the water to me, and it's April it's not too early when you have four teams competing for the east, and they from the start we're likely going to be separated by as few as four or five games. And now when you're already four or five games behind you have to start looking at months like may neighbor'll thinking can they go six above five hundred. And it does not look like they have the firepower to do go. And you have this thing with in dome. Where you you you wait, and wait, and wait and wait and never put him on the DL and he hasn't played in the weekend. And he played one game. He aggravated the injury. Why did you put him on a deal for ten days? Let alone up thanks where he has her hand up. Are we missing a certain someone with very tall hair? I believe I I know I don't want to. I was one of those people who said it not have to sign him. Not that it has to be done. But I think you're gonna miss them. And I feel that we miss him because that is a bad that everybody is afraid of account. Forty comes up that doesn't strike ask. Is a threatening band. And I don't know. Now, there's guys were hurt Turner and rend owner hurt. I don't know that they have a regular foreign five times a day threatening back. I damn well do. No, they don't have it like him. Yeah. They don't Harry, it's the threat and you look at who has been in that spot. It's going to be one. So to who's still so young. And you look at how he's responding whether or not throwing the fastball and when they do throw their essentially throwing it at his head like they did. Yes last night. And he is he is in a little over said he still producing, but it's not the threat to have the game change because he was protected last year by other people in the lineup. Advertise hard. I. Not sure I'm not sure got to spend three hundred fifty I understand. And I'm not sure the record in terms of wins and losses would be that much different. The games would feel different because if you had eighth ninth innings, you don't have Brian. That's all just tore. You were reformed for into Bryce, Joe Scarborough, bellow the clowns. Was stay with Washington DC. You're about task some compadres on the wall on the Wath the wall same right field. Some new inductees would just start off with that. I think everybody in this room is the most excited about former Washington Post fortress and komo's any buyer who will have on this week because the Kentucky Derby Saturday. Yes. Andy on this week.

You know, again, they miss I miss that guy a little bit just just say, we up the worst thing. I want to put your mind at ease. I know you had plans to to the Macy's in center. Rosa today. I'd seen I saw the mountain line. There was a mountain lion. A male amount line was napping in a planter right outside of Macy's. So vicious was not an insignificant cat fifty pound mountain line. Yes. Wow came in. They don't like to kill the animals. They liked to tranquilize them. And then place them back in the wild. There's snow recent to kill the Anna. Right. So they shot. One. Didn't take him down to three took four trank dots to known as me, bro. Yeah. He couldn't go down right away. But then then they grabbed him him. No, no, no. They released him. They think he was from a an era where it was. Yes. Creek near Santa Rosa plaza. So and they say often young males will do this because they don't have mom. They don't have the boot young girls. They do get same old shaggy. Yes. He can't shop online shop. Yes. Yes. He's working. He was just trying to get some trying to get an early do more walking. All right. We'll take a break old guy radio when we return a bunch of very small stories. I'm going to challenge you for the group coming up and Olga. I don't think you can name all the members of the band. We'll say I'm telling you. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. This is old guy radio for the day. He's at that point the young rascals, not even the rascals. Spend suggest that I can't name the rats. Dino Dinelli on drums, gene Cornish on guitar. Feels Cavalieri on the large Hammond organ any brigade with maracas. I've leave I've named at the rascals. Why we playing this song because this date in nineteen sixty six fifty three years ago? This song hit number one. Now, it was originally recorded by an honest name. Lemme b good. Who's actually really lemme Snell? And let me be good. Yes. Lemme by Johnny be good. Yes. Yeah. Let me be good like world b free. Yes. Yes. Exactly. Then is recorded with slightly different lyrics by the Olympics, though. I know you fixed and then in western movies Cavalieri heard the Olympics version of it and said, oh, we should try this to a alive thing. And it was a big hit live. So they recorded it so fields Cavalieri and gene Cornish still sort of tour a little bit as the rascals, and my friend Tom Jones, not that Tom Jones. Did a gig with them a few months ago and brought me back an autographed, you know, sort of like the brochure pro that they give out and both of them signed it cool. Fact Felix Cavaliere said he'd like to be on the podcast. It's hard to just put a, you know, I don't really know him to put him on the podcast, and then I would just sound like a fan boy. Let me get to a couple of things here. George mitchell. Vich who comes to the show every once in a while on Tim works in the US Senator George and is affiliated with writers series in Boston and Denver and San Diego. But he's lived his life in San Diego. He's San Diegan. I think that they are called. He wrote me I think San Diegan gone from anchorman. Dear. Dr k you said on the podcast Padres are bad team wrong. When Tim and I came to the show a couple of weeks back. Michael ask me about the Padres. I said the Padres will be surprised team in the NFL twenty six games in. I've no reason to change my mind, they have in in order one of the best defensive catches in the majors. They have gold glove winners at first second and third at shortstop. They have the games number one prospect who are twenty this is for not junior twenty in every game demonstrates why he's a brilliant fielder in an outstanding hitter. They have five outfielders any one of them could play for any other major league baseball team. But you only get to play three their bullpen is number three in the majors. And don't we envy that? And Chris paddock. They have one of the game's best young pitchers now. None of this. You know, because as we know your show is DC Centric doesn't keep me from listening every day. But it is what it is. However, the way they compensate for that is to read my notes, I try to cover it all is baseball notes fabulous inviting Michael wilbon, remember. Boy foot boyhood friend that was touching that was really nice and that was from yesterday's show remembering Kenny Arnold. But in fact, my sense is that the that the NATs they had a bad series against against them dolphin dolphin Moreland series against and I thought they were all terrible. But I guess the Padres are not terrible terrible near second place this yesterday. Right. So, but I'm just I'm just bringing iterating I'm bringing it up. This is more important than that dad's going through his phone in the call right now, I'm going to things to say one is my friend. Jody force dot who was a doctor in south Florida. Who listens all the time? Jodi said he called me yesterday. And he said I've done my due diligence. And I said what what do you mean? He said I have a lot of Canadian patients who come down for the winter. And I asked them about Toronto. And I said is it a mid western city. And they looked at me apparently apparently Canadians don't define their country in the way that Americans do with east coast westcoast mid west or any of that Canada stretches the length and breath of Canada from east to west is much bigger than the United States. Right. Yeah. Much bigger. Go willy to Prince Edward Island way out there Newfoundland way out there. So they have different geographical terms. I guess. But what he said was troubling to me because he said, well, I asked them what city do you most identify within the United States? And they said Chicago. Wilpon? I may oh will on an apology. What do you think is impossible the Canadian? Well, so what does that mean, they are Canadian ones that favorite jokes? What's the difference between let me get straight? What's the difference between Canada and yogurt? I don't know. At least yogurt has an active culture. That's good Christian. I love Canada. All right. Tell them a listenable. Melissa Moulay as you know, does the traffic early in the morning, dresses, the girls table point that out. Yes. So I'm I'm a big fan of the early four news with onion, and Melissa Molay an Aaron Gilchrist and Chuck bell often. Now that chino has left us fell was on scene of announced just chopping. I watched that show all the time, Melissa malay-. Is it fair to say Michael has been has been trolling me has been critical of me. I said Keshishian chess you up if you will she and yes, she and Chuck Bill salivate at at the notion of big snowstorm, knowing they business she wants to stop the sleds. She wants to go outside with her kids. Do snow angels in the snow and has said number of times on Twitter or insta- face. Whatever what what is the book? She said, you know. Like, Tony Kornheiser shut up because people like snow just because you're an old, man. And you don't like snow shut up, and Chuck bell has pretty much the same thing. 'cause I've been critical of them. I have been I thought they were doing the smile new. Killing me. So I get a note on Thursday night. I see it on my phone Thursday night at about seven o'clock, I'm home from PTI and on my phone, something forwarded from Gary Braun to bunny berko to me from Melissa Malays husband whose name is Jake shallot. He's a lawyer in town and said look Melissa turning forty on Saturday. So great if you could do something for it be very appreciative. It would be a great kick for her. Well, this is you know, this is Thursday night at seven in two days. And I can't really want you to come to the event. Testimony. Video in video. Normally what I would do is. I would write a script like we did for Tommy Friedman, Mike, and I would record it and Mike would do this for Melissa malay-. Although to be fair easing, though. Ideally, she is because he's not up at that hour. He's not watching that news. But I couldn't do that. And Bonnie was going to be off on Friday. So I couldn't do that. So I emailed her husband Email this guy. And I said, look it. It's pretty late notice. He said, yeah. I appreciate that. I, but if you come into the PTO show tomorrow, if you bring your phone, I'll sit on the set, and I'll say something so he did he came in. He sat on the set. I said rather nice husband had the phone. I said something to the effect of Melissa. I know it's you fortieth birthday. I want to wish you a happy birthday. What I really wanna tell you is how great it is. Now that we are into deep April. We're not gonna have any snow. Sorry kids the back into snow until. An happy. We're not gonna have because people don't want to be in the snow slows garb. I said a one do what people done in America for hundred years. Go bowling. That's what I said that what's great. Is that morning we went out and play nine holes. And we talk through what you might say in this video and all week long. Listen, I are planning to take Buzi down to the show. So he could parade around and take on Friday. He likes to take photos behind the heads on sticks to see if we can identify the boy standing up now the weather forecast had storms that afternoon. So I use that as the excuses. Why we we did not go down? But in reality, I was afraid to meet Melissa Malays husband because I thought he'd find out. I have a crush on her on on his wife is that right? You do. I'm sure not the first. Now, we know. So I get this Email from Melissa Molay. Mr Tony, I cannot thank you enough for participating in my birthday shenanigans. It was such a surprise to see you pop up in the video, and it just made my night, you a really sweet to taking the time to do something. Like that as I'm sure you get dozens of requests every day. Actually, I don't thanks again. The team was there and really got a kick out of it. So that was. Drag her kids into it. Kids. Making snow angels. That was nice nice this on the air. This other one that your show. It's your show outta Mandel data Mandel rights as the the he writes this dear Dr Tony I will keep this brief details to follow. This is something very special. I'm on the board of the Joe Nemeth legends of golf foundation tournament. This is the fourteenth year the event now you can't be my age and have grown up where I grew up there without idolizing journeyman. Those not washing news channel eight the entire history of the jets franchise can be summed up in this. That's all there is pointing the right finger in the air after that's all they've ever had one day. That's it. Joe name at number twelve with his index finger in the air. I did a story on Joe Nemeth many many years ago for now defunct magazine called inside sports, I met Joe name has spent a lot of time with him liked him. Very very much. There's nobody that I know much like Arnold Palmer. Nobody thought Joe Nemeth was a bad gun. They thought he was a nice guy and a good guy. I have a picture at home. Home that was taken in Phoenix airport of me, Joe Nemeth and Al Roker. I, you know, I'm happy with that as anything else in the world. So if you tell me there's a Joe Nemeth legends of Gulf down day interesting. This is the fourteenth year of the event is held at Bethpage state park. I think you know, it Zuno it, and we take four courses, and we have over one hundred celebrities we make a million dollars per year. Well, previously for the March of dimes and now for the Joe Nemeth foundation. The event will be held this year September eleventh and twelve attaching last us, brochures, can see what the heck I'm talking about. This year's brochure will be available shortly and says I'd like to invite you to join me, and my family wife, and parents at this year's event I've much to tell you about when time permits now, I do get invited to these. I never go to the I I don't go. 'cause I gotta work. I got this job. I got the job. I don't even know when September eleventh twelve but nine eleven whatever that is this year. But but but there's say last. Line in this. And it says, oh, by the way, I worked for Jimmy Dunn, and Frankie Alasia is a good friend and colleague of mine here in Durso is a golfing buddy of mine and my club on Long Island now. So is the lawyer right day longtime SPN lawyer, and I know him to say Hello. But but the great Jimmy Dunn, and Frankie Alasia Michael do you wanna tell that story you go ahead? Okay. So Frank when I was starting out at Newsday. I covered high school sports because that's what you do when you start out of new of big newspaper. You know, if you're a kid, you're not good enough to do anything else. And one of the great basketball players on Long Island. I was twenty one or twenty two years old, and he was seventeen or eighteen years years old at Saint Agnes, which is a great basketball school on Long Island was getting frankly, this is Rockville centre on Long Island. He was all Long Island. I team he went to Saint John's he started every single game for four years. He was not tall enough or good enough to go to the NBA. And so he went into. The money business. He went into the money business. At Wall Street. I had not seen Frankie Alasia and still have not seen Frankie Alasia for close to. Fifty years close to fifty years, but a couple of years ago, we were at the house of the great Jimmy Dunn who was taking Michael. And I in the great check volume into play Long Island courses and Frank you'll Asia's name just came up out of the blue and Jimmy Dunn says, oh he works for me. And he called him immediately. You can describe the rest of it. When dad goes down these deep dives into Long Island history. I it's it's only matched by somebody can go point for point name for name street for street. Yeah. Jimmy dunn. Immediately gets some on the phone, and you guys are transported back fifty years. Yeah. Essentially reading the box score high school. We're talking about how the town of Rockville centre, which had the public school south side and the private school Saint Agnes produced like nine or ten d one players in a given to your period good players. And it was a great thrill for me to just talk to him to just talk to frankly on the phone. And so the fact that atom Mandel knows him knows the great Jimmy Dunn knows all these people could convince me to go look wins in Thursday tough. That's tough. You miss some PT is now Wednesday and Thursday. You don't miss the NFL because the NFL days Monday in the NFL day is Friday. So I could probably do that. We could probably train us some more lay right news. We speak to let's say on TV. That's right right now. I stress. Yeah. Nice dress nice color. That's all I really had to say. I did. I don't have a though you should go on your deathbed. You're not gonna go. God. I'm sorry. I missed that. One Mellon not. I'm not a, but I'm also I'm not.

Andrew Weizman of chagrin falls, Ohio first time longtime as loyal little and current freshman Yale University. I feel obligated to clarify a few points regarding conversation from last Monday's podcast regarding the renovations at one of our libraries first of all the books removed from one library, not the entirety of Yale. Secondly, I certainly support those students who have protested the moving of the books, but I have to side with Michael and regrettably, Mr. cillizza on this issue, while the concerns of the students are genuine he'll currently lacks large space truly design for students to work collaboratively. And as Michael correctly pointed out, the wilpon hated analytic show that many of the books have not been checked out and quite a few years. They've changed the renovation plans to allow for the space to remain open in the fall and to allow students to choose which books will remain on the shelves following the construction. Also while the books will not remain in library. They're still acceptable for students via our library website in all seriousness. Thank you for years of laughter and the consistent references using conversation. Even though no one understands them quick shout out to my older brother Kirk.

"Posthumously??"

"Grievously on the Tony. Kornheiser show nineteen seventeen and once upon a time in America. God and I assume they'll be nominate Hollywood once upon a time. Hollywood were big winners winter. He knows absolutely insult disagree. Agree I don't really need to thank anyone road I wrote myself. I mean I know they're enlist of punishable faces but he's got a right to me. One step away from Raleigh as a very punishable facing doug this is General George Washington. And you're listening to the tune Kornheiser. We got snow in the forecast today. In Washington DC. We'll talk about that later in the show as I panic about the car that I had never driven snow before David Aldridge. Assia Torie Clarke has found her voice and she is back with us. Michael Cornell's you're sitting in a child seat. This is unacceptable. Well tell me tell me what happened why do you. Why are you sitting in a child? I've had the same chair since we moved to this out of date little studio and I come in today. It has no lever to go up or down. I'm stuck down. Is this not the chair you've been sitting in before no I think this is a personal affront. So you think someone moved your chair or stole your chair from the studio though no one is supposed to come into the someone's been staking out the studio knows where I sit and waiting for the perfect time. Do we have any accident. Paul easing no. We've known installed the The simply safe system with video cameras. Why don't we do that? We don't we advertise simply safe. Why don't why don't we actually get that hook up and put it in here? That would be fantastic because we would be able to record everyone. We want all the movements in the studio. That's call simply safe and in fact get that okay. I didn't five minutes with him last week question. Let's get that there's a chair over there. Not Do you want to big because Michael Sits in equality lacks here. That will take just one key piece of equipment. Yes right at knee level. Yes which the master lock one button. You know set questions if we checked out any British women if they come into the studio just thermostats Ralph we go. I'm serious. I don't want this bill bill. Did I ran into him in the in the hallway just a moment ago he said after the show. Let's have a meeting about the chair. Okay that's great right this letter. I'm just GonNa read you. The letter comes to my house. Yesterday opened up. It's a wedding invitation. The wedding of Morgan Rector and Blake prints on Saturday October. Tober nineteenth two thousand nineteen. So That's past four in the afternoons ceremony at the vineyards at duplin winery or Dublin. Winery in Rose Hill North North Carolina. You don't where Rosehill is north North Carolina Person No need. I Know Rock Hill South Carolina. I don't know Rose Hill North Carolina anyway. The letter who says the woman to whom I'm related by marriage and I would like to posthumously. Invite you to the Prince. Rector wedding on October nineteenth two thousand nine hundred and Roseau North Carolina at the duplin. Winery and I like David stumbled over the work posthumously. 'cause I I looked in the mirror I was breathing posthumously. Means you're debt. uh-huh means you're dead. You're not dead in a metaphor accents. You're actually physically dead. Billy Crystal said he has no health right. This is within driving distance so no no need to have a drug into his flight. The reason this invitations taking so long arrived us. We didn't know whether to send it to the restaurant. Formerly known as chatter or one of your several new locations. We hope this arrives none. The less you shows podcasts of brought numerous laughs through the years and we thank you for this. We wish you the best and hope you continued success and health. Why didn't have any help? So I was was dead according to this letter. PS My best man. Samuel Scott is the reason I discovered your podcast these loyal little and has been for many years with love. Shoutout Samuel Scott. Please see the included wedding invitation return envelopes. Should you choose to do so happy holidays. And thanks again. Blake and Morgan Prince so we can mail this out. Everybody who was here has assign this. I was a little disturbed at being referred to posthumously. Rosehill home of the world's largest frying pan. What who else was in contention stirred? Let's get the. Let's get the city together and try and build the biggest frying pan in America or the world. Anyway that came to my house which is a little unnerving a little. I was going to ask you address to the address of chatter but it actually cheer how came to my house. We have a lot to talk about today. nationally and locally will will hold off on the local will offer the snow forecast and the nats moves and other things. And we'll start nationally with Mike McCarthy getting a job in Dallas you should. I don't know if you should I to me as quickly as he got the job. In other words they had settled settled on getting rid of Jason Garrett but had made no public announcement whatsoever and and while people talked about the possibility. The of one of three college coaches Matt Rule at Baylor who. I'm sure Jerry Jones has watched locally. I think this is second year at Baylor. He was at temple. I think he was the Miami. Maybe as well I'm not sure about that. Lincoln Riley who's been spectacular success in Oklahoma and Urban Meyer. Who despite the fact that I loathe him personally personally is a great football coach and has won National Championships? The two places man like Lick Urban Meyer. He Ain't gonNA coach long but he's pretty any good coach. So all of those things are being bandied about in the media and they signed Mike McCarthy quickly they interview you to people they interview Mike McCarthy and they interview Marvin Lewis so they. Don't they interview Marvin Lewis to satisfy the Rooney rule. Because they want Mike McCarthy thank you can you know we can. We can talk about politics. All we want about the Rooney rule which is good rule even if it results in nothing because it forces people to interview the people but if I own a team you can't tell me who to hire you know if I love a guy like the steelers loved Mike Tomlin and they hired mm-hmm and those things happen but you know Dan Snyder loves Ron Rivera and he hired him. You can't force people to interview people. That's good you widen. Lighten the prospective cast of people. Who can work for you? But you can't if you own the team I don't think you can tell people to hire and it's clear they simply want it. They used Marvin Lewis to hire Mike McCarthy. So Mike McCarthy's hire a few things to say about Mike McCarthy. He won a super bowl. This stuff doesn't grow on trees. He went and one super bowl. He had two great quarterbacks at Green Bay to whole fame guys he had had red dwarf and he had Aaron. Rogers he fell out with Aaron Rodgers after a while as people. Do you know as these things happen. But his career record is like something like one hundred twenty five and seventy five. Yeah it's probably one of the top ten winning percentages of all time right. The packers candle. He did not do what others do. He did not pedal his rear end on television immediately. Like a lot of people do to stay relevant to to try and get another demand on television was. He's not very good on but you know what he laid out because he knew he knew somebody was going to give him a job. Because that record record is that record so you're GonNa get a job And if you think if you own the cowboys and you think Dak Prescott has potential to be a great quarterback. Those guys work guys worked with great quarterbacks. You can't tell me he didn't help them. He had to have helped them a little bit. So that's the higher and Dan. He's a SCHLUB. Mike McCarthy on you know he is but Jerry Jones a lot of people say well. You can't work with Jerry Jones. But if you don't want want the spotlight and Jerry Jones takes the spotlight that works out. David Tori thoughts. Fine good coach. They'll be well coached. I you know. It's good higher surprised at bringing Mike Nolan. I didn't even know Mike Nolan was. He's my age so I was still viable the defensive coordinator but it's You know that's a good higher. It's a solid higher. It's not like Jerry to hire kind of Schlub as you mentioned but but McCarthy's a very good coach so they will be you better coach than they've been in the past now. Does that mean they'll take a big leap next year. I'm not sure it's is tough to coach that team. Yeah the spotlight is on you. It's not a local spotlight's on you from everywhere. Well try it's it's everywhere Leslie so yeah so I have a question guys said and completely superficially when I know about this but it seems like such a different place in such a different culture than green. Green Bay He's he's born and raised in Pittsburgh right well. I don't even know where there I know. There aren't opening Pittsburgh. But if you told me this Guy Mike. McCarthy from Green Bay was going to Pittsburgh or Cleveland and Dallas. That's a national spot. And that's a buttoned up place and they're all spiff -I sharp and he's not so he's not got yeah culture matters. He's a he's a coach. I I think that Working for Jerry his hard and I think even though Mike McCarthy thinks thanks while I'll let jerry talk to everybody wants a won't bother me at all. I think it will jerry. Jones is omnipresent. 'cause she'll be scrutinized every second year in the gym. It's it's like being mcbean the quarterback at a cowboys. Yes the hardest single job in football. Everybody's looking at everything you do and everything you saying. It's not just what you do. That's something tough thing to do. Thoughts now the one thing that you you might talk about the culture shift from Green Bay to Dallas in terms of what what the teams embody going down to what the ownership structure looks. Looks like in the expectations to meet is comes down to. They're gonNA make some more big spends his offseason and the expectations are going to be sky high and you just wonder about other the other weight of winning you have. That's a half to win right now. Azoun as you'd now the division is going to be much better next. You're not going to say it's going to be you say what it used bodies. They're going to be a lot better in. Washington will have some stability onto it. Yes and the giant should have some stability to it as well and they might get hit right so you just wonder what then happens. How quickly does it deteriorate if they don't say when now? And how quickly does some rift what happened. The the. The question of the Aaron Rodgers relationship is going to. I think is going to grow if there is any question of the personalities clashing clashing between distant Atkins owner. Yeah no I guess Tori has. How many spots are left for urban? Meyer the to the giants in Cleveland. Most reasonable spot thought given Ohio state. Yeah is Cleveland. But you don't WanNa work with those people. Don't WanNa work with that owner. I mean you're going to be there very right right. You know. Yeah okay. There's one other one other piece of news in football. National Football to Tonga. Vilo has cleared for the draft Mel Kiper today puts him basically in the top five. Says he's the third best player on the board behind Joe Borough and As young and he says that the dolphins could take him at five in the charges could take him at six. I think he's damaged goods if Obama. GM and I've talked. I've a pick in the top five. I'm afraid eight is not that I don't want him at his best. Sure I do. I'm afraid he's had the same operation to either ankle within within a year and then he broke his hip on what looked like a fairly routine Tackle he broke his hip. He can't go to the combine physically. He's not not his doctors won't let him. You can measure them but the knock on do anything else. You draft him in the top five. So it's your ear tone many of you. Drafting a mayor draft in Richard. This year they'll be your starting quarterback in twenty twenty one. That's the plan would be my plan. Would you be afraid of making that pick. Because you think that he's injury pro would certainly have to look at every injury and see if they were one offs. Or if there's a if there's some sort of chronic pattern here but I don't know a hip scares me. Because Bo Jackson went out with you know now. Ankles don't scare me you get better from ankles but scares me. You know you gotTa look at that. The keeping his ankles plural. And you start to go away. Is there just a compromise system with them saying you gotta find out you have to really do your due diligence medically. I don't care. If he doesn't play combined nobody throws it the combat anymore quarterback's throw to combine anymore But you you do need to know about every one of these major injuries and why they happened. Draft is in April or May. I don't think he's not gonna be able to even have a pro day. No so you're drafting him on speculation. You drafted him on film. You've wash three years of film on Him. That's right not six months he can fling it. But that's also what the draft is if you're willing to waist or use one of those top to your picks on a quarterback you're drafting him on SPEC fifty percent of them do not pan out and now you look at the way. So what's the best case scenario. You get a franchise quarterback who's going to be the leader of your team for hopefully ten Chinese and maybe you can squeeze one or two championships out of that but have some good runs. That doesn't happen all that often. And now you're seeing how you have these second chance quarterbacks who are able to fill the gap if say you take the chance. Try and take him higher. Hope it works for the best. And if it doesn't I I don't like talking about bodies this way but it's just a body and you can plug in another quarterback until you take another guess on this with the Redskins ever get him no. I don't think so I would be shocked at this. They have the picket to They're not gonNA Follow Twain Haskins with another quarter. I wouldn't Rivera. I mean I you know He. He was not exactly glowing in his about Haskins but he didn't dismiss him either. I mean I it depends on whether you keep McConnell and now there's a lot of things moving parts and the owner is still the owner and the owner wanted. Haskins lashed likes them so I can't imagine they're gonNa go away from him. Don't you think they gave chase young. I mean the Guy I think defend I would a defensive coach. You see somebody who's in. Potentially Ron Rivera played linebacker for the BS. I mean this Guy Flips the board if he's as good as everybody said and he's local which is a problem because that's a second local kid that the owner can fall in love with and that's true so we'll see all right so that's what I thought we would talk about now begin with outstanding on. Yeah now we'll take a break when when we come back we'll do more pro football with Jason Lockenfora of CBS sports. And I'm Tony Kornheiser. Is that Tony Kornheiser show not so.

I've been giving you name an email by George Shepherd whose songs have been played on the Tony Kornheiser show multiple times. He can pull.

Yes yes who did email me himself saying yes. Oh God he's planning zone. That's sort of the deal of his hotdogs Jason Lockenfora CBS. Sports joins us. Now got a lot of questions following up on the beginning of the show where we talked about Mike. McCarthy your thoughts on Mike McCarthy going to the cowboys and what it means to coach not only under the scrutiny of Dallas and the entire nation to have to work with Jerry Jones for whom the spotlight is oxygen. What do you think of all this? Yeah look I think You know we've talked a lot about how much jerry fancies Jerry's roster at how much Jerry thinks of the Dallas football cowboys. I I think ultimately this is an indication of that Once again he thought about Lincoln Riley and Matt Role and some of these college guys who might have extreme upside and might be you know guys at the vanguard of not so much for rule in this case but more was Lincoln Riley Guy who's at the vanguard of everything going on and modern offense a football and someone who might be fairly revolutionary. Aren't you may also be a colossal flop. And I think he decided look for the team. I have which again he goes into every year thinking. He's got one of the best rosters in the league. Well well Mike. McCarthy makes some sense and guys one over one hundred games but in the playoffs a bunch of times. You know. Done good work with quarterbacks throughout his career even before he he you know became a head coach so for for Jerry. It's like okay. This might be a little bit plug and play and I don't want to take any risks. I don't want to put this in the hands ends of somebody who might not be up to the task. is it the most inspired higher in the world. No but it look. He's got Mike. McCarthy has a very a strong resume so I get it as for McCarthy side of tone I mean look he he's used to working in a situation where there's extreme separation of church and state. He wasn't a guy was able to go into Ted Thompsons Office when he was coaching. The Green Bay packers even when he became established coach. Bang on the door yell kicking screaming. I need this. I need that I need this. I need that not not that. I think that that's Mike's makeup anyway. But that was never going to happen. He didn't have an owner in Green Bay. You know you have. This is board of Governors Board of directors situation. You have a team president and you have GM but they're they they have extreme You know sort word of keeping football and coaching separate so this is a very different in that now he has a GM also the owner. Who's going to say and do any darn thing he wants but in terms of the the power structure and and sort of the You know the the leash that he gets the leeway way that he would get to flex his muscles one way or the other in that regard. It's not really that different. Do you think it will work with Jerry Jones. It's difficult difficult. It didn't like bill parcells after a while. Said you know what am I doing here. So to- define work. Wh what constitutes work working or being successful successful That you that you have shared understanding that while Jerry Jones has the power because he's the owner that he listens to you that his goals Are Your goals that he is not dismissive. And that you don't have to wake up every single morning going. Oh my God. He said that last night right w honeymoon period and then and also you know depending on how many games they win and specifically how many games in January they win there will also come a point. Where you're like God I'm sick of my owner slash? GM creating starting fires. Where there there aren't any? You know what I mean or saying something on the radio or something on. TV that was an unforced error. You know that now is a mess that I need to clean up in my locker room like that is certainly going to happen. I mean Jerry is not going to stop being Jerry. You know now at at age eighty or whatever he's Jerry degree and Jerry's mind again. This is a home run because Jerry picked the coach would happen not work like I. You know what I mean like Jerry. Stephen Stephen doing what they do. So He's GonNa think next year is our year next year is always our year But he's also showed himself to be incredibly loyal and it's not like Mike. McCarthy is a complete unknown to him. I mean Mike McCarthy for a decade was that owner meetings you know you Hobnob a little bit you run into people at the cocktail L. Party on the golf course You know so. I think they both know what they're getting into now. Do I think they're going to win. A Lombardi together. I I have my reservations because nobody really comes close to win Lombardi's in Dallas and it wasn't just about Jason Garrett was he part of the problem yeah he was but ultimately the team is is. I won't say never but very very very rarely as good as the owner slash. GM fancies them when the when that person's expectations are perpetually skewed. It makes life difficult for everyone. Let me go to some of the people whose names were mentioned and may or may not have been called but certainly didn't get the Job Kevin. I'm GonNa just go to Urban Meyer. Urban Meyer has vast credentials. It's in another form of football because it's college but they are vast credentials urban Meyer GonNa end up in the NFL this year. I'll just go back to what I've been reporting for quite a while. Now if he has any shot at all it's in Cleveland. I never saw him in Dallas. He was sort of you know shaking. It flaunt dance over in the corner. Hoping Jerry at the bar would catch his eye but was never going to happen. I I just. There's too much extreme You know blow up potential like That has the that that could be a total disaster. I mean that could be a situation where there's thirty year old men you know at the trade deadline going up to Jerry's office in a procession saying get me out of here. This is not what I signed up for. This is not professional national grade That doesn't mean it will stop. Jimmy has them from doing it. I just don't think Jerry Whatever whatever really consider it The only only college coach who's on the Panthers Radars Matt Rule and I haven't heard of any other college coach being on the giants radar other than that role. But Jimmy does have a strong relationship with urban Meyer. It goes back aways And that's a situation. Where and most Brown's coaching searches have been this way? They can't get some of the guys is they. Want it the beginning and then they end up hiring somebody who who you know frankly nobody else was high like nobody else in the League was hiring ruptured Linski to be their head coach when they hired nobody else in the League was I know there was always room. The giants might hire Hugh Jackson. Oh you better get in there fast. Oh I'm sorry that was not happening. nobody was hiring Mike Patton and nobody besides him. What Higher Urban Meyer? That does not mean that after he interviews these three other guys this week that he might not make a phone call to urban and ask him about these other guys and find himself an hour later hiring urban okay. Let me get to. I think the story that will be highest on the radar for the next five ons. Brady Tom Brady. What happens with Tom? I mean there's two questions intertwined what happens with Tom. Brady and in fact does bill belichick. uh-huh want him back. All is under SORTA Consideration All under review. My my reporting on this for again and months has been that there is a level of frustration from Tom in that man at age. Forty three I gotta do more with less us. You know what I mean like. When does the one does the script flip And why why do I have. I mean you just list their skill players and then start looking looking at other rosters. Tell me who they're better than like I might buy Jacksonville now I might buy that You know I'm I'm no I'm not GONNA by Detroit. There's not many like there may not be any when you really size it up and when you look at speed And the endgame breaking being elements or match up problems. There's none and they went from having a guy who was top ten matchup problem Gronk to nobody anybody would ever think about doubling. And that's an issue that's not going to change in one off season you know. And that his core Bill Belichick is they defense special teams guy. He doesn't embrace offensive players easily and all things being equal his assets are going to go to the other side. Because while I've always had had Tom Brady and he and Josh will always figure it out. Well Josh is leaving the building. Josh mcdaniels our offensive coordinator Atoms another year older. And I mean there's nothing there's nothing there you can hang your hat on and if you're Tom Brady and you're saying well you know this is my legacy at stake and I've only got a few years left and I want to do it someplace. Someplace where It's fun and I have a cast around me that I can depend on. Who can help me a little bit? That's not their Could could be the LA chargers and and that's the one that I've heard for a while. That checks boxes. Tom Brady on the family side on the business business side and on the football side. You can see Tom Brady in another uniform. Absolutely who who has left New England and it's all roses and cupcakes come by and he's sitting on Bella checks having a joint press conference while they quote Unquote Parkway's. That's not how it goes and a specially not there where you're fighting history. You're fighting goes. You're trying to get that seventh one however you can or or. You're trying to reinvent yourself from week to week and from on the Patriots side of it because of all the roster flaws that I just mentioned is a forty three year old chronically. A mobile quarterback the right guy for them. Or if we're not going to be able to all of a sudden get two outside receivers a young slot guy in case that'll mean gets hurt. Probably a running back Sony Michelle. I don't know if you can count on them and a center senator and maybe a left tackle or do we deal with some of those laws and find our twenty two year old. Who can run like the wind and can you know can can yeah? We'll make a few mistakes but he can move the pocket. We can do different things. We can reinvent ourselves offensively. 'cause all we really if we had Josh Allen with fewer turnovers. That's maybe that's all we need. We just need two or three explosive. Plays out of the quarterback a game and we can win with defense and special teams I don't know tone but it's all under review. It's being talked about on both sides. Judge Robert Kraft will try to be the great mediator. But I don't think there's any chance in hell of Tom. Brady doesn't at least strongly consider options other than the New England patriots for the first time in his career. That's a complete. Wow to me honestly. And he doesn't have much to work with. I mean if I believe that if Gronkowski had played Antonio Brown at played the full season they'd be in the Super Bowl the super bowl but superman's I agree with you completely. The crazy thing about Antonio Brown was thinking about this on the train ride home the other nights if Pittsburgh them now and I'm not vouching for him if I'm an owner of NFL team. He can't play for me. That's why this is the NFL. And he you know played for briefly. A A bunch of people still had the probably in the playoffs right. The raiders still had a five-way parlay to get into week seventeen without them if they had them they're probably the sixth seed if buffalo had remember they tried to trade for him and he nixed it. They beat the Texans. If New England had them and everybody other than craft wanted to bring him back in the building even after everything that happened the first time they certainly at least beat the titans. I mean it is it is kind of crazy I get you out of here on this. I was going to talk about the saints but I'm not going to bother I want to just to get your thoughts on Carson Wentz. WHO's beginning increasingly to look like a Shakespearean tragic? Yeah it's it's bad luck I don't know how else to couch it or explain it He's not doing anything anything wrong. He's not doing anything to Track this or to make this happen. It's just happening. And and sometimes I guess that's just the way it happens. And you know what they say. These things happen in threes. I mean I hope for his sake. This is this is is it Thought it was a dirty hit by clammy. I thought it was something that cloudy could've easily avoided at the very least And I I don't know tone He he's just he's just had a series of very unfortunate things happen to him physically on a football field I don't think he's injury prone I mean he got hit in the back of the head from guys he coming. I'm I'm excited to do the right thing. And just get down. I mean I just feel terrible form because he he he keeps getting to the stage. You know whether it's the playoff push on a team that you think could win it off or here where. He's finally in the playoffs for the first time and he has to exit the game with three yards passing through. You know no no no error or fault of his own It just I can't figure it out. You know what I mean. I I guess sometimes it it happens I. I don't think it can happen forever. I don't think that we know that. Oh this is the story of his career. That's who he is. This is what happens to him because he still you know very much at the beginning but I just I just feel terrible. I you know you you could see that he was up for it I thought that was going to be a heck again. It's still compelling football game but I thought it was going to be four quarters of him and Russell Wilson Plan. Anything you can do. I can do better and unfortunately for Carson. He didn't get that opportunity. I'll just say this enclosing that it makes me appreciate Russell. Wilson's ability to slide is so valuable. It makes me appreciate eight. He's a baseball player. Who knows how exactly but he does? This stuff does not happen to him because he slides earlier he does he needs. He's great at it as much smaller smaller different market than Carson. Wentz as well and I think as much is heat as Russell took coming into the league about his size I do think it helps them at times. He's a little more compact when he goes down. It's kind of. It's not like an accordion where it's opening up. You know what I mean. It just seems like we're also has a way of getting even smaller I agree yeah. It's just I feel terrible for Carson Man. It would have been a different football game. I think had he been able to play. Thank you Jason. You gotTa fuck next week copper for. We'll do thanks guys. It's the only show that says say hi to dog.

How would you get them if you wanted one checkout shop dot Tony Cohen of the show Dot Com rob copy? And we'll a happy to take your order. Terrific all right news. Well we'll start off with the association Mr Tony and much to my chagrin. The Washington Wizards beat Mommy. Levin Boston Celtics Ninety Ninety nine ninety four last night. I'm were you at the game. It was so this this is my question. I don't think the wizards are any good. But here's what I do. You think the wizards do they put a lot of guys don't even necessarily belong in the NBA. The G. League players and they play hard. They play hard all the time Did they've got these guys. I went back and forth. I watched a little here in a little there and they maintain this lead over Boston. Bradley beal did not play really Gotcha. More of their number one pick did not play The Latvian laser. I don't know where he went back to land on the bench. He doesn't play injured. These hurt it allows guys are hurt either people I have never heard of. I've never heard of them. Then they beat Denv Denver's good. They beat Tim Boston's could Miami Miami. They beat teams. They lose the teams. I shouldn't lose to but then I shouldn't say that they're not a good team there. The wizard what I would ask. Is this Scott Brooks looks what do you think. He's learning from what they're doing right now. Anything or when the players get back to they take forty minutes. I think he's learning that you have to you have to play. Young is to keep your job. Because that's the way they're going now and you can't sicher first round. Pick in mothballs for half the season like he did last year. And he's letting Troy Brown play now. Enjoy Brown's playing well and ish miss. They signed his playing extremely well. So it's it's been remarkable. Tony I mean the last eight days. They've beaten three teams who were in the top two in their respective conferences. That's pretty good for a team. That has no players right now. I have no players and it's not vehicles they have no plan. And you know you can dismiss Denver Denver. DEUCE didn't show up Okay but Boston showed it up. They wanted to play and have walker but the which is going really come on. You're talking about injuries. You're still brown and tatum theb running tatum and Marcus. Smart and all their most also guys Miami have their whole team so no they're playing well and Spoelstra said after the game last week when everybody was trying to get him to say how bad his team unplayed. He's like no. No Washington played. Well that's why they won the game so I look around at that team and I think to myself if I were Scott Brooks what I would learn is a more even distribution of minutes because you put these guys in for twenty minutes. They give you their hearts That that's that's that's I watched. They give their hearts. I don't think talent for talent. They're no good. But they're beating good teams because their most coaches his play their starters thirty three to forty minutes a game. There's nobody on his team. Good enough to play forty minutes a game get them in get them out right. Yeah and you you know. What are we been carping about about the was for years? They just don't they don't seem like they play hard every night. Well these guys were much less talented. Do play hard. They're happy happy for the opportunity. To of course I watched him so happy for them. A again Alexandros my knowledge. They beat Boston. They beat Denver. She said very good teams. They played some defense. Miami is as many more blocks last night and I'll take scrappy over talent and diva any day and they'll very scrappy the gay. I was kind of going back and forth last night but the first half really really good and Brian Nick went. Oh yeah well. There's there's no way they're going to hold on here and they held on the equate. I'm very happy for them. So The the one of the problems is if you put Mahim Ni and Banga out there at the same time zero point and talk about my God Banga Zero an in crushing Banga zero point. I'll know Bonga starting to score now. He started going to the basket. He's got a little spin little heart eight. No I think it's like fifteen at against instead ver I think the other night I mean. He's not going to ever be a great score but if he can score just a little bit he has so long defensively. Nobody has turned the corner on him all season. And he's guarded real people like Jamal. Murray like real people who can score in this league would it. Would it be feasible for them him to go out and get sort of that glue guy to rally them like Dwight. Howard is Marco? Foltz had a career best twenty. Five points is the magic for mark took out the Brooklyn Nets. Yeah that was. Yeah no so these are my questions. KILTER WHO's local here is had a horrible just could not have a worse experience. Being the number one draft pick Alpha and they ain't day felt right away he can't play and maybe he had injuries and maybe had psychological problems. Whatever he's now in the middle of nowhere is in Orlando? I guess yes but at twenty five last night which is a career. Hi and his shot which was like ungodly bad when he started with Philadelphia. You can't score twenty-five candidate anything right. He's he's you know he he went to your high school. He did what do you. What is the prognosis for him? He's fine I mean he's you know he's never going to probably be what but people hoped he would be but he will be perfectly serviceable. NBA Player probably an above average NBA offensive player for a very long time. And I'm happy happy for him because he whatever physical ailment he had. I'm not doubting that. He had one. I believe he had the EPS. That's yeah yeah. Yeah and he doesn't have that anymore because it's not in Philly and he's not the number one draft pick in Orlando. He's a he's just a guy they got. That's completely different. You know set of pressures that are off of him and so he can just play now and I'm happy that he's playing. I'm happy productive. Seems like he's doing well down there. I'd like him to stay down there you never know what the NBA people go. where the money is I? Don't know how much money he's GonNa want and how much they're willing to pay him. But I'd like from the stay down there because I think being out of the spotlight lightest a really good thing for him. You are unless you're Mickey Mouse. You're out of the spotlight in Orleans. Right what else Staying with the NBA. How about this kid Don Shit? He goes thirty eight points. Eleven rebounds Tennessee's he has now. I'm trying to get this stat right. More thirty point triple doubles in the rest of the Leah's eleven triple doubles this year. which is more more than anybody else? And when you think of triple doubles you always think of Russell Westbrook you know but foot Luca Danni teaches twenty years old. He's twenty He you went pro in Europe about fifteen or something like that. What do you make of this kid? Beast beast man. He is. He's he's the goods. He's legit great already at Twenty Twenty twenty great player American College No Kentucky. No no no no no no no no no but like you said Tony's been playing against war money he's great. He's one of the classify players in the NBA. And I like when they when they talk to him after the game about these like. I don't know what to tell you man I'm just I'm going out and then applying you know things are going going right. He's a very very humble kid. Yeah yeah he's not Singing in the key of me. Well he will eventually but he's allowed to watch and he's in the right spot and the reason he's in the right nightspot is because Dirk Nowitzki was in Dallas and understands when you're young and you come to America and you know what that is like and Porzingis's this is there and so there is. It seems to me that there is a support system for this kid. Oh sure what's there might not be somewhere maybe not Looks like Jeff Bostick is not a big fan of Twain Atkins on actually on the radio station. Just down the hallway will know we're in the radio station Maloney Maloney and Andy Police Yeah. ESPN six thirty care. Maloney an anti porn just said talk to bostick yesterday and he said just didn't think that that Haskins is the answer eh from what it is as he says but from what I saw the latter part of the season Haskins is not the answer. I just don't think he has great grasp on. Maybe he just needs more learning and more coaching. I don't think you can make any judgment. Went on somebody in seven games or whatever it is I think it is fair to say this that he didn't come in in light. It up now you know what. He's only played thirteen games. They get a chance. He's still awful lot to live and I think you I think if he's the starter next year you give them the full season and maybe even more than that to see what you've got because you don't Marcus. Mariota was the second pick in the draft And he had some wonderful moments in all of a sudden Mike. vrabel said we'RE GONNA go with Ryan Tannehill and he went. What what book but Ryan Tannehill Eighty three and Marcus? Mariota is on his way out. He's not going in Tennessee anymore. Yeah so you wait and you see you have to give people chances and see what goes on a now. They didn't hire you know the the higher they made Ron Rivera. He's on the other side of the ball so you don't know so we'll have to see then he looks Haskins. Maybe as a game manage. Don't do anything. No no I mean I. I just don't think Ron Rivera Knows much about quarterbacks in you can't expect them to whoever becomes the offensive coordinator that that is his responsibility to make this kid better to make him better. And if you can't you know you sit down in a room with the head coach and you go I can yes. Is it Boston. We got busing wasn't done there. He also talked about Trent Williams and was not happy. Be the Trent Williams had taken the stance of not playing and criticizing. The redskins felt that he had signed this big contract and he should've played in lived up to that as he said that this. This is not how things were done in my day. He was misdiagnosed. Yes right would say of all the people out there. I usually look at players and I go shut. Shut up not this guy. No not this guy. Yeah and it wasn't like this was actor. Says you should get your affairs in order that this was not oh. It's not a sprained ankle. It's a broken ankles. This is a very serious cancer thing. Yeah and with football Probably not going to get the job as offensive coordinator here in Washington former former defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is out in Los Angeles. Just WanNa talk to that very briefly on Wade Phillips I feel for Wade Phillips because we're the same age basically Wade Phillips and I Qassemi one seventy two last year. That's next Last year he was regarded as guru for the Los Angel Shrimps. Yes because of what he did with. Defense statistically defense was better this year The problem with the rams won that side of the ball. The problem with the Rams Rams Jared Goff one any good to the first eight or ten games and Todd Gurley didn't play Sean McVeigh's Nada Junior so so firing Wayne in Phillips doesn't seem to me to be a recognition of what actually went on there. You know I and what you'll hear as well game has passed asked by and he's too old and he's this and he's that you know I- their problem was their problem. Was Offense. Douse their problem. That's Sean McVeigh's domain. That was their problem album. I have one of a heart warming story for you. This is the Christmas meal story told us before the show. No don't think so. I got a text from about the Richard Justice. All what did he Lisa He sent me a Texas morning He tweeted out. The Washington nationals bought fifteen hundred Georgetown cupcakes to present to troops during their us a tour a Uso tour for twenty twenty. And I said that's fantastic whale uses. I'm in Rome. Romania right now with two nets in one trophy on. He calls the show. That's great if you're not on news channel and that's rich. Here's Ritchie holding a lovely thing to do. That's wonderful yes. We'll talk about the way we'll talk about nats in old guy which is coming up basically right now. I'm Tony Kornheiser. This is the Tony Kornheiser Kornheiser. Show Guy Radio Day mockingbird by James Taylor and his then wife Carly Simon giant giant. James Taylor Carly Simon real talent. Why we're playing this? We are blameless because on this date and this is not their rich but this is the original song Charleena's pop yes and by the way as a great cover and you don't usually get a cover rubbish song. I prefer the dumb and dumber cover. I was thinking I can't hear this song with that. Thank you Jim Carey in Was Jan yeah. We're playing this. Because the state in Nineteen nineteen seventy four Carly Simon and. Jt had their second child. Sarah Maria Maria Taylor who goes by Sally Taylor and as Hugh musician she is. Listen some of these questions yeah. She's I mean comes from good genes obviously but is tremendously talented They came up with his own To tape record rather because as Taylor had seen this in a live performance by China's an Charlie Fox at the Apollo Theater in sixty five and used to sing this just for fun with his sister and said hey this is a great idea. So yeah yeah they put it on. The fourth studio album hotcakes in nineteen seventy four. So it been talents I mean Carly Simon and James Taylor. Huge talents yeah. Had I told my Livingston Taylor story on this show is one of the James Brothers speaking of old so working the cable industry. They always say they've events everywhere and always have these events for the board where you go to some fancy house and there's a big party and they always bring in entertainment so this isn't some mansion in Newport Rhode Island and I'm walking in with some palaces were walking winding away to the mansion somebody says oh I hear Livingston Taylor's entertainment tonight and I set Livingston Taylor. Oh my God hasn't been dead for decades around the turn and smack into something that I'm sorry and he goes Livingston Taylor still alive. It was very good line so there were four to my knowledge. There was James. Taylor lived Taylor. Alex Taylor who I don't think survived and sister gate and all of them were in. Were in the singing business. James Taylor the first album ever on apple records and was produced by Peter Asher. I believe yes was sweet. Baby James I mean if you're my age maybe memorized every single lyric in sweet baby. James I mean that's he's a big talent on them. I've got I've gotten Siham. I know my son has gotten to see him I really think James Taylor is great. Carly Simon I don't know if she records anymore. She does anything but boy. She was the daughter of Paul Simon Right no no. She was the daughter of Norton. Simon I mean find. The book stored narrowly rich role and still went out and did her own thing. Yeah and was great. Yes that's great so anyway by the way one of the fun things is If you've seen certain films with McCartney and James Taylor McCartney calls him Jimmy Taylor Jimmy in his what he called him when he met in nineteen sixty nine hundred. Yeah so I We've done a lot of national stuff. I wanted to do local. I wanted to talk about the Matt's Kiss. I missed the nats and I'm hoping twenty. Nineteen world series champion. Yeah I'm coming coming to go. They signed Daniel Hudson. They resigned. Danieli howdy to a two year deal. Daniel Hudson was in my estimation over the last half of the season the most and perhaps only relatively reliable right handed arm in the nets bullpen And I I hesitate to use that sentence without saying there were two very reliable right-handers in the nonstop and they were reliable in their stink attuned. Swear Oh and southern thunder stricklin. They were terrible. Strickland is still on the team. I don't Barrow but I don't. I'd have no understanding of that late in the game very late. In the Game Sean doolittle a lefty became reliable reliable again. The Nets have signed recently. I was pleasantly surprised but totally blindsided on the starling. Castro signing had absolutely absolutely no idea they re sign as Jubal Cabrera Grech they have startline Castro. They just signed Eric themes From Milwaukee which means the end of the home runs at CNN. UNIMAT Adams correct because he's left handed first baseman. Now I think they have to and maybe even ought to God help me saying this sign Zayn Ryan Zimmerman and it's fine and put him out. They will put him out there again in a platoon Situation they are minus a third baseman. Their the defensive infield not counting first base because Zimmerman is a good first basement. Yes they're second and third. Well we don't even know who they are. But if it's if Kendrick is out there Castro I is a pretty good field Cabrera third too much this says to me. They're not going after Donaldson. They don't have the money. I don't know if it's as it says that they're ready to start the season if he doesn't sign and they don't have to make another corresponding move if doesn't sign. It appears that if they signed Donaldson they have to go into the luxury tax wrecks which they've said publicly. I think publicly they. I don't WanNa do. Yeah Right which I think is absurd for Tim noticed. Won The world series. You know It if you're here's if if you're not going to resign random because its cost too much. You didn't sign Harper because it cost too much. Now you're saying he won't sign Donaldson 'cause you go into the tax and I liked the moves. They they may talk like all the moves they've made but at some point you gotta sign you have to actually pay. Real money to Donaldson is a little bit harder. When he's on the record saying all things being equal I I would like to go back to the braves so there could just be a sense of we can give him an abide? We'll give him acts. You're not going to do X.. Plus one which is fine. It's a position. He has said that. He said he wants the braves fan. Would say all right. We've we're still in this with Minnesota Nets if you've said that why haven't you already waiting for somebody to do. Which I I? The last year people have spent money this right public public people spending money. Yeah so I you know look I wish they would sign Donaldson or at least make bring in a third baseman. Somehow whether it's easier when in these other guys which is any of them would be fine with me but I do like is it themes or teams I never know? I think it's I don't know it's not a river. He's not a very good first baseman but not a river and its is bombs hit. It went on for Shire's wild card. Yup Yup nothing. Yeah so You know good pickup Castro. Good pickup. So you know. He's a Rizzo under the radar. So Castro and I'd no idea Castro was available and he's pretty good on loved him and he's on the cups right we'll say is not that good. Look it looks more and more likely that he will sign Zimmerman on a short deal as sort of a friendly. Let's have you leave on your terms. Lets you be part of the goodbye tour tour for two thousand nineteen and frankly would be a good pairing with Ames because seems has a big hole against lefty pitching and you could see a split like sixty five thirty five percent and you do have of an Infield that will work that serviceable. You can have Kendrick You could have Cabrera playing third unum Castro playing third but the danger is what happens when you can't really established publishing everyday rhythm. It obviously helps. When you have a lot of these guys in Kendra can't play every day but what happens when you're playing three or four positions over to period does that lead to an increase in errors? Here's in Wingfield. How does that hitching? I agree with everything you're saying. I think that the formula for the nats is a little different than other teams. The nats have had the oldest roster last year. They're probably going to have the oldest roster this year and so- managerial you make accommodations to people. It's sort of like glowed management. And also they. They're not really defensive. Players you move everybody around not in the outfield but in the Infield and you live with it You live with it. The problem is with no bat like renaissance in front of Soto people. Just come pitch around Soto. Well maybe you hope that robe lace is becomes in his second big year a big hitter. Her I don't I don't I agree with that. Yeah it's it's weird it's a weird alchemy because you're trying to fill the sort of the the winds above yet you lose with condone and you have to do this edition by looking at the small pieces. They're making in the infield which hopefully they'll work out together but also the additions in the bullpen. And what was what. It was a glaring weakness now as a relative strength and you have to be impressed by adding Harris to that mix as well and just think when you compare that with the top three that they have. What does that mean for those three or four game series against the braves which they got basically skunked and you look at if you look at their record against the division they were terrible against the braves? Raves and the mets and the mets the mets late in the season was because you had relievers giving up home runs in the back end of the game and frankly the philly record is only because they were able to below five games in a four day period when basically lineup. So that's that's where you see those winds trickling back on their side. But it's it's a best is case. Everything works as it's supposed to and you don't have sort of injuries or people missing their numbers. Big Nats talk today I I long so I'm with you. Though I miss them I miss the Camaraderie of walking down the street and seen people with their nets gear. We opened up our nets commemorative wine over the high was by the way it was pretty good. That's still have mine in a very heavy added on sealed by Biol- Staying local there is The normal panic About snow first measurable Snow Coming to Washington. DC What's the boombox today while I'm GonNa. Is Nigel about all of this. I don't want to know what was reported yesterday. I WANNA know up to date. I've never understood. I mean we live in a big city. This notion of go. The supermarket can get milk. It went on limiting the Arctic is going to be a couple of inches at morals. And you don't need. You don't really need milk. You don't honestly Oh need milk number one. I went to the safe with the Social Safeway. And just before a rather large storm and that some bloke was running running around like mad with a shopping cart big hot seat a big Pumpkin and unlike a little bottle of mountain dew. That's it this. How is the latest capital weather gang? Say or what is what is yes. I'M GONNA look for today. We don't I mean he's not here he I don't think he had this hardtop for snow. I believe it was topper And that's that's pretty much we're GONNA get la- There's GonNa be some rain later on today that's going to change into wet snow and then we'll change over to adjusts. No they say it's GONNA end between probably seven eight nine tonight. Yeah I was Gonna say eight inches Pantai. Timing is the devastating back from Connecticut into sales. From where you are in the city it's going to be mostly to the north and the West. It looks like it's going to be in there saying we're from trace amounts to two inches but that prediction was earlier and I think when they've updated it. Seems like it's GonNa be even less than that as might be some on grass areas what we would call conversational snow. which is a significant? I'm not saying view. I think if you see an accumulation it will be on yards not on streets. I think north and west of the city you could see some slick areas develop you you know. Probably around like six and seven. I would think you know I'm telling you the coming back on. Connecticut Avenue at six o'clock in the middle of snow. What is normally twenty five minutes becomes fifty minutes back up from the Maryland border? I have gas in my car and I'll be okay just three ends. Go meet a friend for a glass Lhasa wine and had an early dinner and then in floor drive home. At Eight fifteen. There will be a nobody on the road. Well let's be the first snow outing for the new car. Yes yes Yeah concerned about your ability in this new car. No To hang out with Wilbon after the German Wilpon In town will ban has dinners and lunches. Che's every day this yourself to dinner with them and says what will bond us. He's always out. No he is he's always out with. Nobody loves being wilpon waist. Okay the bowls are finally over the ESPN. Now that's right. All the balls. We put on four four hundred Bolton. They're finally done last night. There was something called the learning tree bowl learning tree belonging and they spell the names right in the end zone. I Guess Louisiana beat Miami of Ohio and now it's over now. We wait till next Monday for the college championship ship. I I don't know why they delay like this. I mean I really don't because it gives them their own sage there it's all the cells will. ESPN owns. They could've gone last night right. They could have your little. I don't know I don't you guys talking when the show's last week you're you're bemoaning Tony. That the the big bowl games the rose bowl. The cotton don't have as much meaning Roosevelt. Who the mother child who recently drove through the night? Go to the Michigan Game. It might have been the dental floss ball for all. I know for those people and in the fans who go to the smaller schools in squirrels. Of course I don't I don't hate it I hate when we're bumped. ESPN two. But I accept that more people WanNa Watch live live football game than watch. You know a studio show. I I understand all that you get in at six and six. You win six. You get in if you don't get in to real real bad year you can't win. Six Games and Maryland terrapins at a real. You've had a mediocre year gives you something to be happy about at the end of the year and be hopeful for the next year. And someday we're going to have the Tony Kornheiser bowls small. The one thing that that is hoping is not the right word but it is amusing to me. Some of these stands hands are not even half full now. Well not even half your small school. You may not travel. Nobody really do. And you got so drunk. You missed the game This is directly to Nigel so I watched about an hour last night of once upon a time in Hollywood and I will resume watching that tonight right and I. I liked what I saw I. I will say this that almost every time. I see Leonardo di Caprio in a movie. He's a better actor than I ever thought he wants me. And I don't think he ever gets credit. It's SORTA like Robert Redford where nobody ever thought he was a good actor. Leonardo di Caprio is a really good actor. So I'm watching some of this and and I don't really know what it's about. It's sort of a love story to Hollywood by Quentin Tarantino. I don't really I know what it's about but I'm watching to Capri on watching Brad Pitt. And I understand that it's the tate labianca murders in its Charlie Manson and all of that stuff but in one scene Margot Robbie who in in the first hour anyway says almost nothing just dances she just cont. Did you see the movie. Yes just constantly dancing At one point she's dancing to a particular album. She's dancing too. Paul Revere and the raiders called spirit of sixty seven not seventy-six spirit of sixty seven and she's dancing to this song. Good thing. I have that album. I had that album great. I played it in College College. Ten Thousand Times Old Guy Tomorrow or soon as we can has to be good thing absolutely. Paul Revere. And the raiders. I know this movie is GonNa end badly. It's going to end badly but at least for an hour. I'm completely I'm intrigued. I mean same way with Brad Pitt. Better action when you think he is like these guys are good. They know what they're doing out there. So it's the Pacino part. I go what what do. Oh you do like that that. I didn't really understand Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt started out. Pretty Boys Right when they're certainly pretty poice was I was thumbing. Louise Yeah Yeah Yeah and I think it took some time for people to overcome that the capital was a child when he started and and I think it's easy to say you know to make fun of him when he first burst on the scene. One of John McCain's daughter Megan McCain shown had a big crush on him and I don't know how it came up publicly publicly but it did and McCain goes just send Raj this little whim seizing him. You really shouldn't say that public. He's got chops they really don't you love the I saw the movie sometime ago. The just kind of golden glaze over every way. It's filmed as beautiful you know you. I don't even know where they got all all the old cars from you know. It's it's the movie is set in nineteen sixty nine. The cars are legitimate. Brad Pitt. Like look a stuntman or something like that. He's he's and he's he's allowed lay. He's essentially Leonardo DiCaprio's valet and when you see where he lives when he goes to literally trailer in the middle of a dump go. Wow there's this one small wonderful scene where he takes the canned dog food out to give to his dog. And it's just a big blob Bob of junk that you would never feed your state of the Gambia. Yeah and it just. It's it's pretty good so far is more fun for me. So far than bombshell and I told you the other day about Joe Joe Rabbits just too weird for words run. I'm on saying some really good. Now koper Sasha Baron Earn Cohen's joke about About Rabbit he was time at the fearless guy as ricky surveys. He was talking about. What did you say it goes? And and now we're GONNA see the clip from the movie about the Nazi loving. You Know Young Guy who's got no friends. The whatever Nicos a social network. The story marks Acrobat. That's funny I thought Ricky travails great. He was great the guy in the post to rip them. Is it dope. All the critics ripped him. Oh they shouldn't rip them. I got a note from Phil Who's monitored show for us. What do we do babe? The lending trouble not the learning tree of the lending Who knows yeah again?

"Should we do the show a little later?"

"Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show. Now you're going to get paid. When I started started in clubs in Brooklyn and in the owners would be like stick around? I'm not going to pay the band. Might need some help there. There's all kinds of right at register. Sometimes it was a guy in a club in Brooklyn I started with and I was there the whole weekend. I was seeing these packing out the cigarette machine he goes. You did a good job you want time. Um You stuck the time. I know L. U. Money his fifty bucks. And what do you smoke again. You get the Tony Kornheiser show is on now. Thank you that them Ferrara for always making us laugh. That's very very good. Gary Braun is here. Gene McManus's here. Michael Kornheiser's Kornheiser is here. Nigel will produce the show on the board. Do the news the Great Bill Isaacs in his here. He's brought a couple of copies of Garry shandling book which is enormous. It's like the ways what forty pounds. So if you don't. I'm sure when you're done laughing. You can lift it and work out now. It serves a dual purpose. We are. This is a Wednesday which reminds me that next Wednesday. The day before Thanksgiving we will be at clydes that will be our fourth time at clydes maybe our last time we may go out with a Bang Hang. We hope that a lot of people will show up. It is the day before Thanksgiving and people who are in town from out of town and like the shell please come It's it's beautiful. Yes please they. Now the show a little bit later to accommodate say guests. Who are traveling? No hang on. Let me think about how what seems like Little bit later. What what does that mean? Would you buy gates. Eight eight fifteen eight. I'll start a crowd. Everybody wants to start at eight. I'll start at eight but I'm not going to go all day. I'm not waiting for somebody from you. Know upstate South Dakota just got off met. I'm not waiting on Meth. We're on it. Drove straight through on on Hoda so I got a diaper and I'm walking dogs timeline. It's an and I usually have the streets to myself. I leave. Leave the House about five thirty walking the dog and lately last two days. There's this guy walking his dog at around the same area at around the same time and my dog doesn't doesn't like his dog and so just sort of get out of the way and everything job not as big as check Jesse would rip. It's long Robinson that's roots lungs out so let me we go. We get to the well at one point. There was a woman last night. who had a dog Yuppie dog an fairly good sized dog though not as big as Chessy and she kept following? I would cross the street. She would cross the street. It's like what are you doing and I i. There was one point I wanted to say look we can set the dog settle analysts. If you want my dog will kill your dawn. Amano I mean. Let's I mean. Why are you so confrontational neighborhood? Crossing the street to avoid this an an an and she's anyway so we get to the corner and And Jesse stops and and I look up this too dear. They're five feet away to deer and one one big deer the other one a good sized ear significantly bigger than chessy like a deer but the one big deer not a doe though not a buck and and my dog and I guess maybe dogs do this but she just sort of regards words these things with curiosity. She doesn't tense up. She doesn't growl she doesn't go after them. She stands her ground. I don't I think she's probably a little nervous. But I'm not as nervous as I am and I'm pulling the dog. Let's leave the deer along because the last thing and I'm actually saying this is if the dog I'm GonNa Conversation because because the last thing we really want honey is for the day or two to run at US right at us. We've all seen that video of the network that rearing up on a tiny leagues and punching the hunter that so we don't want that so we it worked out fine. There was no problem. You know I think it was then when Jesse asked me if we could start a little late next Wednesday and I said don't you ever. You've never laugh at anything I say anymore. It's just means our words or hurtful Brian. I wonder why you wonder why clydes doesn't want to do business with you. Six Fifteen A.. So last night driving home on Connecticut Avenue. It's five to six okay. So the four lanes. It's four lanes north four wings North and and the the fastest. There's lights there's a lot of lights is a lot of traffic the fastest. You can go. Even if you're making a light is twenty five thirty miles. An Emmy just can't go faster than that in the left lane. Two cars pull out too. Low Low like racecar not race cars but they went they got up to you could hear. They must've gotten up to fifty five or sixty miles an hour and I saw them. We've we've I saw one of them. We've from the left lane to the second to the left lane. I thought what what are they. Have you ever been around something insane. It's insane it's actually clinically insane that you will you have to have a high performance vehicle to achieve that much room right. Go three three blocks before I guess to read like what are you doing. I mean they are endangering other people really care about them. I care about the other innocent people. Well Yeah Yeah. Because I mean when you're driving down the people on the The skies you know Cosa phone people just wandering through the streets. Yeah I we have nats. They drag racing or they were most following the other they were they were in the same lane beltway playing yeah crazy. Motorcycles at eighty five miles an hour with one one wheel what do you wish more space space. This was very very cramped. Do you have Harare partners. We run a look at them. I'm sorry I got no. I got to give the website. July's accent news. Free agent outfielder. Geraldo power has signed with the Yomiuri. Giants of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball. Okay so there's a lot of ways of looking at this are good. Is that Soro's team Jonah. Leave us yes throughout the district. Ti played for us. So the the baby ashort thing is gone and we hope Jean that no other player will try to recreate that. This is a magical moment and this ends the right way he. He doesn't go to another team in the major leagues. He doesn't stay here because in fact he can't play anymore really. I mean there's no real spot for him he takes with him this fabulous memory to another land piece of jewelry another land I mean. Does it work out better. I think it does not attempt to recreate create that vibe in that dugout is impossible so I mean if he were there and like listlessly waving a baby shark next season I it just would not work. He is given credit credit as the sociological catalyst for for all the great things that achieved. He is given credit for uniting the clubhouse. Not that it was necessarily divided but uniting clubhouse I mean he he and Sanchez Day made a Stephen Strasburg into an human hugged him that it was the entire two point. It was entirely spontaneous. What happened in that dugout? It was like a completely organic thing and and he started the dancing. Did Not I mean. I don't know how you couldn't be happy when she gets to go play presumably because he wasn't playing more than that he gets he's going to get paid. And when I first heard this. I'm thinking of the line from Les Miz. Just based on the other moves that are going to happen. He was the first of all the first of us to fall. Upon this Barricade Ryan you just think about what's funny. It's exactly what I thought you know. My worry is as soon as this thinking about starting the show later on good that I just going to wait till is about this as soon as the baby shark things started to happen and they're selling merch in the team store and there's the secondhand and stuff on the streets outside you just wonder there's zero chance he's getting any pay for that's right right. And if based on what the late summer they actually sold. Merchandise wasn't wasn't a Redskins t-shirt. Oh yeah no real merch being and if you look at all the world series stuff they were selling it has the baby shark with the trophy. So it's good for him to get paid. There's no way to recreate last year in terms of the culture and frankly the best thing would be let him go play a little bit get paid do a tour of baby shark in his personality and and come back. He's on he's thirty two but I think he'd be ready. He's a culture guy. He'd come back and be on some coaching so coaching I coach. I mean when you say he didn't get paid. I know this sounds ridiculous. Because he's I it's not money but he won the world series. He was a big part of a world series team without necessarily playing a large amount. I mean I I. I think that if you win a championship you carry that with you a piece of it forever. You reminisce about how great that was. If you never win another one well at least you on that one I mean I just think i. I really think if you're a career baseball player there's just nothing that can compare to. Winning a world series is back in the dramatic way. They want it and you know you know down three two and winning the last two games against a team. That would've cheated if they changed it. Obviously dead I mean and and these teams break up because people people want to go and they want to make hay while the sun shines and I it's understandable. It's not the same. It's not gonNA be the same team if if he you know. I think we all seem to think renaissance going to leave. A lot of people will leave. We certainly think don't is going to leave power by the way a presumably getting paid one hundred fifty five hundred fifty thousand dollars last year by the nets that's his career earnings according to how much Well I guess maybe not to you. How does forty six point eight million? That's more than more than I would've thought I would've thought he was a fifteen million dollars. He was hoping hoping that That the redskins would sign trying to help turn that clubhouse chemistry round that no possible. No Damn fine culture winning off-the-field redskins. We'll talk about that later. Here's a There's a democratic debate tonight. which is fantastic? Don't excellent I've I have I've got fifteen twenty. How many brands every once in a while you hear from somebody from out of town and the assumption that they make of course is that at this is you are living for politics in Washington? You are so excited by this. You are riveted by this. You are watching television all the time time. My friend Peter and Fort Worth you know was. He said something about vindication the other day because he knew Veneman had gone to Binghamton by the way he was damned impressive in undoing damned impressive and when he said we'd refer to me as lieutenant colonel. I like I thought of you and I said I figured out what I I like that Dr Cohen High. But I said I said to my friend Peter I I don't I don't care I mean you. It's here all the time you live with it all the time he just wish. Yeah and just let me know when it's done and whoever else is coming in and just your motorcade Outta my way right so it's so. Are you a normally in in years. This past I would. I would make appointment viewing for this debate tonight and I will not do you know but I've watched every minute of the impeachment hearings that to me is much more interesting than the debate. It's the pathology of the impeachment Haas that long long. OJ reference for your kids. So so I guess I don't WanNa say this is a gimmick but it is certainly not a coincidence incidents that NBC is having four. Women do debate. They'll be no men at all before women three employees of of greater NBA moderate and Monterey and in and out somebody from the Washington. Most what we make. Do we make anything of that too. We think that favor anybody does that hurt. Anybody is it just is it just so that. NBC can say look so we did which which is fine because never been done before. Oh I don't know I mean digital maddow has the best ratings and yes I didn't know. Oh that and cable in all cable Outta has the best ratings even beating Hannity none. Well I'm in in a way I could be cynical and say what we'll first of all I will say this at. NBC them as we do have a very good cast of women journalists and so if it showcases uses them as good all all the better and Andrea Mitchell certainly has earned her spot She's been doing this for very long. Time the cynical side of me. It's like okay yes let the women have the stage for a while oak okay. I mean I'm assuming you do who this one of the written. There's a lot of reasons you do about one of the reasons you do. It is to get attention and get ratings. You're in the television business. I don't begrudge that to any television show and they're all good it is it's a television rating to win. You want some you know bulldog sitting there. I don't know I mean if you're appealing if you're appealing to women women if you're saying this is for you as you know it's fifty percent of the country. Yeah yeah well this is why I think it's a little lame in because what you wouldn't do is have four men. You would not do that. Well you would have ten years yes but you you would not now so throw a dude in there. I don't I don't I don't like a little bit. You're young over the top. The based on how many debates we've had and how many we will have going forward. It'll just be interesting to chart. How changes the patterns turns of participation based based on who is on the stage? Because I think if I have someone in my ear I've been trying to frame this if I'm a male female mel whomever I'm trying to frame the so I don't feel like I'm interrupting talking. Over any of these moderators if I'm the moderators. I'm trying to get coaching to make sure that I'm not following into stereotypes. Types of viewers might have which is too soft on the on the town on the stage or too passive in my questioning. Let me that's interesting. I Yeah I think I think those points valid point I I mean I just the misnomer is that it's a debate. Just stand there in the show. It is not right right. You can't just twenty people are you know like when. Don't you want a bang your head into a wall when CNN puts eight people around is crazy Eh. This is more than twice that San. There's ten which is still too many but let me let me make one other the ten th. They didn't make the cut so they keep raising the bar. We need to pull out. Can they're going to raise it again. So the next one is presumably going to even smaller. It's like not Fedex Cup not knowing the field not to go armchair media critic but something else to consider and if I had to wager sure I would say this is probably will be among the lower rated debate and they've got an I say that only because people I think two genes earlier point people are going to WanNa watch the sunland stuff today. I would think and there might just be a little bit of fatigue from a a couple of hours of that two more this crap so I wonder if they'll suffer from that and it would be really a shame if that happens and it somehow attributed to this all female moderating panel won't be did he really well. It could be shouldn't be allowed. It's Wendy on this panel tonight when you match must see. TV Yeah Pat Forty sports illustrated will join us when we return. We'll talk about the new college football ratings playoff ratings which are not very much different from the old all college football Ratings talk about tour and what happens to two. I'm Tony Kornheiser. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show This is the end where it tells me to feel free to ad-lib the introduction with a personalized story.

You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show Kelsen. We played white trash cowboy yesterday yesterday by Dale. Allison this Jesus lives in Kansas. I just liked the name name is. I've spent some time in Kansas in my life. Not a whole lot Because most of the time when you go to Kansas City of course you're in Missouri now right across the river and you go to the Kansas City Country Club Upi put on your. Hi White Sox Michael and you play Tom. Watson's course and then you're in Kansas Jayhawk. Probably thank you. Dale Allison playing in Pat Forty. Now sports illustrated. We've got a bunch of questions about the poll from last night. But I want to start with two of what should what do you think what you will about an. I did this yesterday on the air and Wilpon said absolutely do not come back and play for Alabama absolutely not not what you may come back to get healthy and stay out of this draft but do not ever play again for Alabama could lose all the money. What do you think he should do? He has the option of going being in this year's draft getting out of this year's draft and going into next year's draft without playing or getting out of this his draft and going into next year's draft by playing again at in Alabama. What should he do you know I would? I would probably side with Wilpon on that I would. I would go in the draft I would. I would certainly not play another season of college football You know if if he bounces out of the surgery and rehabs well I- somebody's draft him and they're going to probably draft him pretty high And then you know if he may not be ready to play in twenty twenty in the NFL. He may be sitting out that season. I don't know but I would go ahead and begin the process of becoming an NFL quarterback even if it's From a limited athletic ability to begin with you're at least you're on a roster practice squad you know you're learning the game at that level but I you know I would certainly agree that I would not come back and play another year of college. The ball the one problem. I mean he's been fragile. Yes he he doesn't he doesn't run a lot and he plays the offense line and he's still been injured many times. That's the Benach and I don't know whether that gets any better by sitting out here I would just I would go ahead take my. Here's what can happen and I assume that there's going to be a lot of general managers who are going to to be wary of drafting him very high because of the possibility of fragility that you wouldn't have this guy for any length of time. You can lose pat if if if your number instead of being one two or three is thirty thirty one or thirty two in the draft order you can lose as much as twenty million dollars right off the bat. What if he's fragile and he full any believes he's fragile? I I would go in the draft right now because it's not going to get any better if he plays again but he can't even he can't go to the combine you know he's not going to be ready to do anything next year. So you drafting him on SPEC I don't know I think that hurts him economically comically. Where if if he sat out a full year just sat out and God healthy and submitted to you know examinations by teams? Maybe that would help them know. Well I mean it might it might You know the one thing next year. There's there's zero percent chance he's going to be the top quarterback taken because Trevor Lawrence's coming out You know if I were him though but I would begin the Rehab and I would go under this premise. Like I'm going to be fine. And if you want to know what I looked like as a quarterback there's twenty five games tape where I'm great right. You base it on that. And then we'll find you draft me in the first round and I'll show up and run you know in May or June or July or whatever I I that would be. I guess the premise I would operate under. Is that people still. You'll know that he's a really good quarterback And you don't get there. There's not much would show a year from now. Okay yes I can run fast now but The one problem. You're right though that I mean he's there's a very good chance he's going to give away a lot of money upfront. Yes get it back later deal get get it back later do you think and I i. You know him much better than I do. Do you think Nick Sabin will be influential in this or that tour and his family will just say we make our own decision here. Well I think they'll certainly listen to say even But I think they the ultimate decision will be with two and his family and you know my feeling is they. They've been thinking about an NFL future since he was probably eighteen or younger. And I you know. I don't blame him because he's certainly capable of that So you know I. I don't know what saved would tell him For sure but I might guess is that they will listen but not not necessarily be completely swayed by what he says okay The spotlight is on one player in the country more than any other player in the country. Somebody named Mack Jones. Who is the new quarterback at Alabama who It's impossible for me to believe isn't really really good because I don't know why they would have recruited them and put them the backup to If he wasn't really really good. Although I don't know how good what do you know of. Mac Jones He's you know. Four star recruit absolutely From Jacksonville who I think it was originally. He was committed to Kentucky and committed and when Alabama came after him He's played pretty well when his plight. He may not have the passing artistry that to a possesses. But you know he's been pretty good. He certainly knows Slouch Can Run offense the thing is you know are you. Are you ready for the pressure of the situation. Are you ready for the full speed of the situation You know he he gets. He started one game against Arkansas which is basically a dress rehearsal. Get another one against NEP. CBS team this week. But then it'll get very real at Auburn Galvin thirtieth. Yeah Yeah we'll see how good he is. Not only you know just you need to do. Is that an important game to try to win. Because it's a big game rivalry game and all that but but basically the your entire playoff resume. Now you're Alabama is. How do we look in that one Game Sam Horn? Yeah what do they what do they look like without too And against a good team and that'll be it. So let's let's get to that and your opinion of that if Alabama Beats Auburn and it is at Auburn. It's hard to win if Alabama Beats Auburn. Is that enough to stay ahead of Oregon and UTAH. The one thing that would really be in their favor you were there is Oregon lost to Auburn. Yeah I gala Bama would have beaten Auburn so I think that's a big shift there now. Utah doesn't HAVE THAT SITUATION WITH HIS UTAH. I didn't play them. But if it's Oregon you gotTA head to head against common opponents You know if you saw. Utah's very good very very good. There one loss was to USC ranked team. Yeah Yeah that yeah. I think that was important for their tastes that the U. USC Wendy into the rankings last week or this week You know it's still. It's not as good loss quote unquote good law says losing to Lsu. But it's not a bad bad law so it would be a close call. I think with the Utah Wins the PAC twelve versus a on loss Alabama. So let me get to what I think. Is The elephant if in the room or just outside the room. That committee is chaired by the Oregon Athletic Director. This is blatantly unfair and when he says well I walk out of the room. Well I recused might stop please menu with these people all year long. They have an opinion of you. I cannot believe that there's an opportunity to throw Oregon in there that they won't do so it W- what what is your opinion on that. Well yeah that's what these are human beings no matter what they say and they spent excuse me three days. You know week together in Grapevine Texas at this gaylord resort and they're not spending all their time in the room. They're eating pinner together or have an ice cream going out for a beer. You don't think that rob mullins. CAD IS GONNA maybe Seidel up and say you know we've had a heck of a year you you the PAC twelve is really kinda got short shrift in recent years and some of these people like there are friendly with him and have been. I mean Scott Stricklin Great Eight Athletic Director Florida. He's also on the committee. He's been friends with Rob Mullins furhter two decades. 'cause they worked together as assistant. He's Kentucky you know. I mean these people know each other. They have friendships. They have alliances So that's the whole thing. And yes you have these committees that are full of of eighties and other people that have teams that are very much involved. Gene Smith was on this Joe. Castiglione from Oklahoma was on there. You've got way too many people with way too many conflicts of interest. I involved in these committees that. That's exactly how I feel. I think this is rife with the possibility of of just scandal with this guy there and I mean no no he says oh no no no. I'm out of the room but I don't I don't care if he's out of the room he still in the room. He's in the room to every moment that that this thing goes on other than with Oregon they know we years did Oklahoma move up enough for you because they did not move up enough for me knowing you're looking at the rankings. Those the big loser probably was the the big twelve. Yeah there's still. They're boxed out by a lot of people. They still need a lot of things to happen for them. I think to get champion into the mix. It's now maybe those things can happen and Oklahoma would have a couple of you know significant opportunities left Oklahoma state's good team in a ranked team And then they would have presumably another game against Baylor. Those can help their resume. But still I think overall if you're the victim of you're sitting there saying we're up against it this year so let's let me get to that in in your opinion which is a better football conference the big twelve of the pack twelve. Oh boy you know. That's a good question. Shen I I would say. Probably the big twelve top to bottom is but there's just they have just a very white middle class you know. There's just not a lot at the top end that makes you say there's a team that beat a really good team. I mean I think by by the time this is over. You Know Baylor's GonNa lose a second maybe a third time everybody other than Oklahoma in that league's going to have at least three losses. If that's the case okay so yeah yeah you just don't point into anybody. I mean like if if Oregon and Utah play each other at eleven to one. I think you have a pretty good idea. Those are two very good teams applying a very big game against each other whereas vic twelve. It's like Oklahoma. Just beats a bunch of pretty good teams. I don't see if gears into college basketball because maybe you you have more information on this than I do. The James Wiseman circumstance at Memphis It seemed to me and we'll bought an I will bond said ahead Memphis one this easily and I said I don't know what planet you're living on. It seemed to me that Memphis caved in to the NCAA. Obviously because they were probably probably in my opinion afraid that they'd get some long probation and that would kill him for next year and the year after with with Penny Hardaway. What is your what? What is your assessment of what Memphis has done with James Wise Men and what the NCAA will do well? I would expect a decision on that very soon. they play Wednesday night against Little Rock. I you know we may have have an some resolution of how long he's out by that that game by tip off I you know I. I think there's going to be I you know. I don't know how many games he's going to be suspended but it'll be You know whether it's three whether it's six or whatever they're going to get him for the first three that they play. Okay Yeah when they when they stuck the middle finger up those will be added to whatever whatever the suspension would be and. Here's the problem for Memphis. Okay you'RE GONNA get James Wiseman back you know. I don't know January first middle of December. Whatever never the case may be? He's probably not gonNA play in your big rivalry game against Tennessee. You could have avoided all of this if you just played ball up front and sat him down to begin with and now you're going to have a major infractions case probably coming down the Pike Accurate University because you directly made the decision to play an ineligible eligible player until the NC double aid to go pound sand right. That's GonNa be the big long term problem for this is yeah they they may feel felt like they want. It may have felt good lead at the time. Ultimately I think this comes back in major allegations against Penny Hardaway and against me down I you know. I know that Mike thinks that someone just GonNa Waltz in and take over for the NCAA. His idea is that venture capitalists will get together with Jay Bilas and they will just they will just have this cool this coup. D'ETAT and I go I. Just don't I don't know what world you live in if you think that's going to happen the colleges like the NCAA because it has structure the comfortable with it you know what the NCAA does two things it puts on championships and it takes care of all the little headaches that nobody else wants to take care of or can take take care of and the ANC is run by a bunch of university presidents who take six weeks to decide what what kind of copy they wanna have in the morning. You know. They're all of a sudden just because a bunch of Outside business people come in and run. Thinks there's no way no way and by the way they're perfectly comfortable if you hate them which is good which is good doesn't get that. Thank you pat. Say Hi to all the swimmers for us all right. We'll do a break. It Down Pat Forty of sports illustrated boys and girls. We will come back with news news when we return. I'm Tony Kornheiser. Ju- listening to the Tony Kornheiser show.

How do we have the approval process? Where Robson's over design work designs for Tony to to sort of approve and just considered dead season? I've never seen him more critical about a piece of clothing. The size of the font type. I okay particular vision for this one. This one was a phonograph was a phonograph a large. It just seemed to me that that would be ancient radio. Not Old Guy Radio Radio. I enjoyed the Buddy Kaiser design from about twenty five or thirty years ago. where it was it was an old looking RADII? Me Radio was a real exciting. It's like a papal had it does it. Looks like an insignia on a Catholic schoolgirls blazer. So you're disapproving you need eager. You need say old old guy where you can hardly tell due respect to buddy so the actually the question at the heart of this is how much is that. We do the little who would buy. Yeah this shirt okay which is not you. Although you would wear the shirt I would would. They rather have a t shirt with a sort of front and center. Big Old Guy Radio graphic traffic and picture or do they want just sort of left breast plate little understated thing which is definitely your preference. What do you think Michael I? I'm leaning more towards the Big Lobes I think in a t-shirt you're looking for subtlety. which makes sense because it is yours very understated gentleman? It's a dog. It's a dog walking shirt. Yeah but imagine someone will. I had a brand new. Imagine someone walks into Clyde's maybe for nine o'clock show. They want people to know that there are two in their mail bag. Yeah Okay but you doing walking in now What are you doing we do want your name on the back of what you do with your home address call? I don't mean to spend so his or your money for you. You make one hundred of each to see which goes faster astor. Boom you got an answer. Well this is great because I'm texting with Rob Right now but I'm just going to say wait for the show. A- all right enough shouldn't be thousand no-nobody ten thousand one in some real raw data. That's a little house water them. I'm Tony we started this newscast to alert you about a very important event tonight at the wellness and Events Center in Newark New Jersey. That's right replaying not yet in in Jersey Institute of Technology like Jesus naming the highlanders island is yes so so the line on that game off the board okay. This much action. See if that's if there's a line on that game. Njit in your conference there is no. We're in the non conference schedule now of now. Thirty thirty five hundred seat arena cost one hundred and ten million dollars. That seats must be great. It's going to say they must be the best seats in the world. That goes there. Construction said Ms Is Johnny. We'll talk about Gun At hathaway. WHO's facing a possible suspension? After spit left his mouth and landed on another player. The other night Hathaway has has apologized. He said to be honest Well let's see. Where's the actual great apology? I regret doing it. That's the most I can say my emotions. I was pretty tied up up and I felt like there was delivered me from people who say the emotions just ran away from me. It's not who I am I so I didn't have any arms free on made an emotional decision that I wish I didn't but right now I'm trying to move on from it. Yeah let's not focus on the pad is there's nothing he apologize. Yes Sir This is great the coach what the coach's name reardon. Yeah Todd Ridden He feels terrible about it but he didn't have to talk to anybody. He's the first one to say. I want to own up to what I did. No He's not no he's not at all. I want to say that what he said what had happened was spit simply escaped my mouth and landed on the other guy this is nonsense. It's revisionist nonsense on the part of reared paid me out to be myles Garrett as a result look I don't care if they I would suspend them for one game but they'll have have to suspend him but let's not make it seem like he's he's the most apologetic guy work because he's not no he's not known I am a capitals Fan. I disagree disagree with you. I think you have to suspend him you. Can you cannot allow players to SP- you. You can't tell player willing to write a check. You can spit on Kim again. Can't do that game game players. Just try not to tell me that. He's sitting there in a confessional weeping about what he you did because that's what he's doing now to not get suspended by the way this just into the Tony Kornheiser show podcast newsroom. There actually is a line on the Binghamton Jit game tonight let's see looks like Njit opened as a thirteen point favorite late movements. Have Thirteen and a half total thirty. The eight and a half they are. They are two into two Binghamton one in three. That's an enormous thirteen. Total on this game was love the under the one thirty eight and a half you have to. Yes I think he loved the bet cats in that match. Don't you well. I love the bearcats but not necessarily in that one hour and anyone some of us. In this room upton yes but what can I can I give a shout out for my Alma Mater. Denison sure what did they do their football team meth. We're on the the non math quite yet. Isn't that like fancy word for deer. Meat Denison it is. It is fancy Jimmy which by the way used to get profiled all the time for being the only college that still ran the single wing and they would be they would never get a win. So I I read about a lot of pub. Yes let the in the season with a record of eighty two in the second straight eight win season and the third eight win seasons in two thousand sixteen. They've gone thirty one and ten with two NC. AC Championships congratulations relations. This story here. It's November Sixteen November twentieth and they've ended the season which is Pretty Noble Denison this year to the NBA Amos to Tony the debut the much ballyhooed debut Carmelo Anthony. Mack finishes four fourteen from the floor. Ten points in the blazes lose to the PELICANS. Pelicans one fifteen one five turnovers. He had five turnovers in twenty four minutes. He had no assists. which is his he? Shot got fourteen times and he made four them while he was on the floor. Portland was minus. Twenty was on the floor. They were minus twenty at that point and he's wearing double zero because he wants you to understand that if you're looking for me to play defense here's my number. I'm not playing any not once but twice. I am wearing being double zero. He had a lengthy explanation for why he was wearing double zero and somehow confused zero with infinity which. I don't know how did that. But a lengthy explanation which was so confusing that you read it and you go what what is happening here. We'll zero next. Two Zero. Could look like in forty eight. I think you'd be more likely confuse eight with infinity. 'cause you're Oh yeah you were on the fallen on the ground. When asked how he felt about playing he said and I'm quoting? It was cool. Then then he said we still have time to grow a meaning. I assume the not that he's wearing towards. He'll finish out the year then he'll be done. He wants as you know. He looks at his friend. dwayne Wade who had a victory tour. He looks at his friend. Lebron James who still great great now with any says what happened to me I wanNA. I WANNA play a little bit more. Portland is that was a game between a five and nine team in a four and ten team. I you know we're GonNa make and Mike is going to do today. We're going to do a whole segment on Carmelo Anthony and I'm not. I'm not able hawking. I'm just going to say what I mean. You know. He's not he'll score a bunch of points he will. That's what he does. I don't think he will significantly improve that team. I just I just don't i. Don't you mentioned Lebron second ago. He is now After the win over Oak City Lakers win that game. One twelve one of seventy is now the first plane. NBA History to get a triple double against every team in the league. Anthony Davis scored thirty four points. They won the fifth straight in and out twelve into. He's a story the season he's leading the league in assists. He is sacrificing what he has done. Great for fifteen years in order to make the team better to make. Anthony Davis happy. They have the best record in the league when they lost it. A clippers is in the opening game. Some people like Michael Wilbon left them for dead. Left them for dead. They've lost once since then. I don't know if they're championship team. Lebron James Is. I'm sure fueled by anger at Magic Johnson for just leaving him an anger at people who looked at him and said he stinks because they didn't make the playoffs and I think he's GonNa have. He's having a great year I think he's going to have one of his greatest years and the other story. NBA's James Harden who's he's averaging thirty nine points a game but what. What are we talking about here? Thirty nine points a game. Michael Jordan never did that. This kills Wilpon because if you mentioned anybody in the same breath with Jordan me we can me and I'm just saying that. He's scored the only person who scored more than that is wilt is wilt. Yeah Me James Harden seems to be unstoppable bobble and by the way playing with Russell Westbrook. Who's much better than Chris? Paul much better seems to work. You didn't think it would work. Seems to work Derek Games over five hundred. Yeah it's pretty good. When you've only played about twelve games pretty good Back College Basketball Games from last night of Virginia Ginny Beats Uvm. I know that brings you joy academy. Hey going yes. Can't wait for them to lose fifty five good England. Seven threes is a good team and The number six terrapins beat Fairfield. Seventy four fifty. Watch any of that. I had it on a little bit. It was hard to watch. Watch 'cause it wasn't particularly close but got anything I do have one more story Frank Sinatra and Harry connick. Junior had a little running years ago I was gonNA take one of. Them's not living Francis not with US anymore not signing anymore Harry connick junior was performing being in front of him and he never got nervous but for this particular thing because he was playing in front of all Blue Eyes. And that's right. He said it was an unpleasant experience because as much as I want to sing for him and everyone else I don't we'll get nervous but I was really nervous for that and I blacked out. I completely forgot the words I was with my wife. Then my girlfriend Jill goodacre And then we saw frank at the lift and I wanted to apologize. The job is to him so he goes up and tries to apologize Sinatra said I. I'm sorry a much better than what you saw. But Frank didn't pay any attention to what Harry was saying. He he just blew past them win over to Jill goodacre to held her face in his ends and said you're beautiful and kissed her on the mouth which now we can't listen to him anymore. That's terrible it my way. I was never able to sing again. It was probably unacceptable. Then it was a situation was interesting thing I think. My affection from the context made it hilarious four but obviously completely inappropriate Frank Sinatra can do what he wants especially Harry connick junior the highlight of his life. And I've seen him perform he's great. The highlight of his life would be to be compared to Frank Sinatra. I mean that's it's yeah. Everybody who's things like that wants to be compared to Frank Sinatra. You know and too so he blew it so what somebody all right. I'll we'll get out of here and we will have all guy radio when we return in which I will try to salvage this show by telling even stupider stories that I've told before. I'm Tony Kornheiser this. This is the Tony Kornheiser show so radio for this Simon on the set of Saturday night live wearing a Turkey outfit. The second the third show that they ever get usual that so good podcast. See googling googling this is still crazy after all those years. Here's this is Simon. I know I've read things that indicate that he's not what I'm going to say now but all of these disappearances always make me think very likable all the movies that he's in and doing wearing Turkey suit he's as a man after your own heart to dress off. Yeah Yeah I mean. I know that there are bad things that are said but he's a genius. He's written tremendous songs. He lived as it turned out. He lived on the same building or the same floors Lorne michaels. And that's how they became POWs and that's how we did this. I remember a couple of times on the show. He would just strip off a suit and he'd be wearing basketball shorts and he'd play basketball on the air and didn't ever seem to be afraid of making a fool all of himself because he had great confidence. He's tiny little guy. Yeah it's like five zero Fella say my country later in that in that program years ago was is that that was nineteen seventy six. That's eight yeah forty three years ago. A watch that I did too. I think Saturday night. Live until seventy five writes. It was early years it was like the second or third show in the entire. I have not. I don't think it was started in seventy five or seventy six But yet later in that show George Harrison came on and played with Bulls on. You know shot. How's that so that was that was from the album? Obviously still crazy after after all these years. Yeah well it's it's a great when they don't know who is it about it because one of his he doesn't write anything bad. No doesn't write anything. No mom doesn't didn't right. My dangling didn't write shell and they say it's about his ex wife. Peggy Harper could have been a former girlfriend Kathy Chitty or even about his break-up with with Garfunkel nobody knows really who's referring to win. That doesn't really matter. It's brilliant loose lips sink ships. I remember In the in the the old days of the style section when I first came to the newspaper And and the style section staff was just luminescence in essence I mean these people had enormous talent Shells and Sally Quinn. Meyer McPherson and Cynthia Gorny and and Linda Darling and Tom Zito Paul Hendrickson Michael Kernan. I'm leaving people out and we Mitchell I I mean every one of these people could write right. They were really really good Lynn Darling wrote a story about G Gordon Liddy and the headline was still living after all. These years always remembered that thousand great staff right. The editors great the editors were great. Yes shall be coffee. Jim McManus. Mary had doll in their united yet. I hadn't become an editor Gary yet. But they were all great yeah. They're just greatly in skirts play. They knew how to hold your hand. They knew how I mean. What an editor? It's not the only thing in editor editor can do. And it's not the only thing editor should do but an editor's gotTa know how to hold your hand and get you through the story. I mean when we talked some months back when j Levinger had passed away and I talked about him being an editor and just understanding how to get the best out of it. Not all the same. You know you're not. There's not one rule for twenty five team members. There's twenty five rules for twenty five team members and if you don't understand that as an editor you're you're not doing your job right that's fair to say I mean you got to treat everybody individually. I wanted to Well I WANNA get bill to just talk about it. Bill can can on the microphone. The Garry Shandling Book Bill and Garry Shandling. We're obviously very very good. Dear friends and channeling shellings book has been released. You can sit in the chair and would either of you like the book for this portion of the interview. Yeah you still will hold it for those penalties watching on his channel generally. Yeah yeah so I I just want to say they'll get closer to my customer. I I just want to say it's great to see you guys. You're listening to you all over the country bill. We're big fans of your wor. Yeah so yet Jet Appetizers got a book out. Editing Gary's materials it's a compulsive notetaker Gary kaput compulsive notetaker journalist. It's full of emotional thing. Pretend you're arguing. Supreme Orleans leaves. Funny Things You have his joke paths People and then also it's an oral history people talking about him and also also a lot of interviews with Gary and thinks he's written talking about the various phases of his life. And you're right it's about forty pounds and pre Calculus Calculus textbook right and it's half the size of a coffee table book. Yeah but it's but it'll crush the coffee table of the coffee tables made of glass. That's it's really I would argue. It's impossible if you have a pulse and if you're even well maybe even if you're not from an offensive impossible to open up and not what you can. You can hear his delivery in every line Nettie rights you can see him us really really great. He's really great page five. I grew up in Tucson on Arizona's where it's like a hundred and twenty degrees in the summer when day our dog ran by just burst into flames So thank you for that. I wanted on it to tell the story of waited a few days to tell the story. It has no impact. Now it's dopey Michael's looking at me laughing. 'cause I just refuse to tell me over the weekend I blew allow so here. So this is what happened in this was. And I'm I'm telling this story rather than talk about Ted Leonsis belief that the wizards are gonNA come back immediately. Not that everything is great with the wizards the wizards just great Well The star playing defense so of course they will because they haven't in ten years. Of course they will now. The coaches are really paying attention to defense because they give up a hundred and forty a game in regulation anyway so unless Saturday when I can't play golf when even when I can I am a I have OCD I mean I I make lists self diagnosed. Yeah I make lists. I do tasks I do tasks very well. I am dependable if I tell you. I'm going to be someplace at a certain time. I am going to be there probably surly I mean. I plan my life to accommodate those things which I want to do or need to do and in this particular case on a Saturday I wanted to get to the bank right around nine o'clock when the bank opens the bank that I use on Connecticut Avenue. I'm the only person who goes to the bank. You Walk in the bank and gets adds money right. I get money from the bank. Makes give them money and deposits. I get money back from the bank and they all know me because I'm the only customer they have. Have you ever go up to three weeks ago. Where have you been only? Do you ever win without any particular transaction but just to get a statement update. No don't they don't do that so I'm driving now I am. I am going West on Nebraska Avenue. I'm going to make a left and go south on Connecticut Connecticut Avenue for a block. Or so I'm GonNa pull into the bank. I noticed on Nebraska Avenue there are people lined up. I saw that too. There are people lined lined up on Nebraska Avenue and it extends down Nebraska past where the parking lot for that strip of Stores is past the bus stop. That's your favorite arts. There's gotta be that's where I get framing custom framing at that particular. That goes into that park. Yes I I was walking up there. I saw the same thing. I want to ask people what they were doing there. So I see this and it's going around the block. It was like waiting for stones tickets. It's going into politics and prose bookstore politics and prose and I'm thinking there's got to be a thousand people on this line. Well there's not fifty fifty one hundred thousand people it's cold. It's windy APP. It's nine in the morning and there's a thousand people so I'm wondering wandering who's there and I go to my friend John Connor who owns the BP station on the corner and what what's what's that and he goes out that's from Michelle Obama and I say Michelle Obama. She's there and he goes. No I said well what is it goes The first hundred people who by books first hundred people buy books are going to be able to get in on Monday. Night when Michelle Obama's GONNA sign one hundred books and and I go. There's a thousand people on that line and I don't know how long they've been going inside to buy the book at Thousand People in line. Because he shrugs the odd Give me twenty dollars worth again. It wasn't like a raffle. It was the first hundred I mean it was a raffle of one. Hundred can see how that line first hundred I on it so I want to get. I want to make sure you understand this. She's not there that day. Hi this is Saturday. She's going to be there on Monday. This is I've never seen this. I you a thousand people. I walked right past it because I was going to the Avalon okay. There was a movie about Leonardo Da Vinci and it started. Oh you serious. Oh was fabulous everything. I looked at that line and I thought thought what is. Is there a new Harry Potter book. I mean it was like that too. I'm not kidding. There's a thousand one so around the corner. Hi It's not that day. Hey It's two days later I understand though if you think you're going to get the opportunity to meet or two later but why if it's the first hundred why are people still deal with eighty Thrown out with a show. This is what I thought. She could be president of the United States America. That was my immediate reaction. I can't can't think of anybody who is running for president of the United States of America. who for whom that would happen? Not can't I can't the all these people in the debate trump no thought of thousand people not like that no none that neighborhood no never preserve and I honestly honestly thought she could be president because she people like Kerr yes they do now. She apparently doesn't wanNA run does no. I'm not the first person who says you can be president. People going up to her so you could be present. She doesn't WANNA run now. My position is different than other people's position. My position is I'm I'm sorry. You gotTa take one for the team here. You gotta run not up to you in a way. Not Yeah you're GonNa win you know it's going to be better because what we have now. I'm not let me get to political but I think that everybody understands that I can't I really can't believe even even those of you who think impeachment is proper here. It's not good for the country. This is not good. It doesn't make anybody feel good about themselves. This ridiculous process which is going to end with nothing happening because the Senate is going to be. I mean it's it's stupid would going on and on and on and it just seemed. Do you know what I mean Lina. I thought she could win. Moments her. Tom Hanks Oprah could win and maybe George Clooney would we put could ellen win. I think Oprah can win press Bob easy for them to win in the debate would go stop. They'll be people be happy. I just anyway. That's my store. It's not a great story but I was. I'd never you know as you say that you can imagine people waiting online to buy tickets to something. Yeah but this was was anybody even that day. was anybody trying to move the bike inside so it didn't get it rained on. Fortunately there was no rain. There was no rain on that particular day so I was in. Chatham she'd be on chatter on books. Do we know I hope so. The story on that long in the marketing Nicholson story which has been big stories written. I somehow think they've been underplayed. Yeah here we go. It's just news judgment. Okay Yeah I will just tell you that Monitoring Nicholson is defensive. Back for the Washington redskins and at some point last week a woman alleged to be his girlfriend with whom he had had. You know a relationship of some term right She was in his house and reportedly overdosed on some sort of drug and was delivered by Monte. Nicholson to a hospital will where she was pronounced dead and pronounced dead. No nine one. One call was placed in fact a call was placed to somebody else to say. ooh things are looking bad bad for her and then they took her in the car and then he played on Sunday. Which I you know I? It's a stunner to me. I don't know I don't know that there's anything more to this than perhaps an overdose. But they've gone through his house and they found drugs and of course his lawyer as any lawyer would say goats number that they don't belong to my client. It's never seen them before. Has No idea how they got in his house. But is this not a story that you want to know what's next like I wanna know what's happened and I would think that the team would have some sort of statement or issue some sort of concern I think they did. It really thought they. They'll some author. I think the father of the deceased was said of Monty. Nicholson eating McCormick. Komi Komi think I was in the original story Let's go to the microphone because bill is a bill is a lawyer. As as bill says old Tommy walks in. Guess who's licensed just got reinstated. Well not officially never young people in prison all of this country who for what are called overdose homicides right now. Prosecutors are bringing these cases when you give someone would you. You'd have to have given the drug right. You have to gear indication of how they're in the same same house so that's going to be the question and then you add in and it's a it's a negligence homicide ha and so when you add in not going to the hospital immediately that the whole the whole negligence picture creates an issue that this lawyers gotta pay close attention to so it's is is ready and it's been it's been written about. I just think it's Jimmy Builder. Bill Callahan the redskins coach. Or I guess he's termed interim coach still said. The incident had no impact on the a team decision to allow Nicholson to play. That seems like an odd. It's like of course it. Didn't you allow him to play almost just like well. We weren't going to let them play. But when we heard about this Yeah that's no. I'm sitting here going. I don't know I'd like to learn a little bit more about this. You will I bet. They wish they could just go back to being one and nine nine and no one paying attention again over. I'm expecting a real big story. I'm expecting what we call him. A traitor tick tock story. We'll see ya ought to talk meaning is at live my man. I'm expecting today but I'm expecting that story. Post headline was pills.

"The Aaaaaaaf"

"Yeah. Previously on the Tony Kornheiser show. Okay, fine. And I got the sense that something that just happened. And Rick got got word and had to talk to Frank and I come back in and Frank is incredibly expensive. Everything I asked us. Great like, wow is really really good. And I go back and write a puff piece. Of course. I read a puppies a couple years later rip born said to remember that I it was so weird. He goes I said to Frank. This kill. This. Savages people. Why are you doing this? The Tony Kornheiser show is on. Now what I was the writer a long time ago. We are live at chatter. It's a miserable day. We're at the corner of Wisconsin avenue northwest and Jennifer streets northwest, we're open for breakfast. We have one person in here right now. And I'm grateful because he is Derek lips from the United States army special forces, and he came all the way from Riady rains gave me a challenge coin. Let's not the kinda guy that did dissuaded by weather know, whether it's okay so wintry mix. Yeah. And he I gave him a shirt that I can't wear. It's a soccer shirt that says Kornheiser on the back, and we'll see how well that works in Saudi Arabia. We'll see if I'm well liked. Gary Braun is here crystallises here. Michael Kornheiser is here Niger will produce the show run the board. Do the news and Brian Polian here. Yes. On her. I am wearing the Notre Dame shirt that he wants send me and I wanted to Brian wrote a note last week does anybody need any gear. And I was too embarrassed to say this, but I will say this in front of him. He sent me a pair of under armor. Notre Dame issue with doesn't say Notre Dame anywhere on them, though sleeping Schwartz. These things are fabulous. They're the best Rian day, really. Abuse is those sold in the open market. I mean, I believe so but K shop in this is this is how the state of college football we hand up Djaama's. I mean, I don't know if I speak for most people I prefer even in the coldest of whether to sleep in shorts. Now, these things are tremendous Arvee suit for me. Well, that's. Nightmare told me that was a hard. Explain to my wife, though. Sending Tony Pajau totally fine. We're going to have Valentine's Day specials. Valentine's Day is Thursday. I think. Okay. But that's a week night. So we're going to have over the weekend. I'm told by Elizabeth and Ron we chatter thought you meant shatter Thursday Friday, Saturday Sunday, I think we're going to have the same special. I wish I knew what it was. It was explained to me last night. Michael, do you? Remember what it was? No. But like some food and drink great way to save face. When you forget that day. Yes. I don't think it ship parents to the rescue. Threat Taryn says a three course meal twenty nine dollars. Okay. So. So. I'll just say this if any of the courses involve desert Elizabeth last night brought over a white cake with chocolate icing. Michael fantastic to die people might think. I'm joking because I described her bread is the best bread. I've ever had true. I am not a desert guy. Fantastic. It's just great. So if she's cooking, desserts, you want to have something to do with it, a we apparently have avoided we have been lucky in the DC area to avoid the worst of this particular storm, as you know, the today show begins every single show with terrible weather that affects in their words. One hundred million people we hundred just getting basically rain, I went out of five thirty this morning. I put those things on my shoes. Crampons? I put them on in case. It was icy because there was a coating of snow wasn't. Yeah. Wasn't particularly icy. And it's temperature is rising here for most of the day to those people who are involved in ISIS worse than snow ice is the worst. There's nothing black ice is awful just awful, and it caused me to break a rib. So I'm being very careful when I walk by the way before we start the show. I just want to remind folks if you still scrambling for that great Valentine's Day present because it did sneak up on us this year. It always does I would say you can get gift cards right here to chatter that is the greatest local local that the greatest gift of all someone. So I wanted to talk about what I did over the weekend. I I didn't do much. I did have appointment viewing on the Duke for Ginny game. And I think a lot of there's not a lot of sports out there once football stop. If you look around you go what what I had a point guard. Chris, you know, it's just going to say at some point in. What if you don't know what number you think that did? Oh, we're gonna talk about because it's interesting to Duke game the Duke game versus the the alliance of American football. It's very today overlap. No Duke was a six. Brian's going to have to talk about later in great detail. The I was an eight o'clock tip. I think that's right. But it did is I was surprised two point five and Oklahoma sleep way. No, build up and Oakland like no network build up nuts. So no promotion, nurses, like the XFL, which they promoted. So we'll get we'll get to that later. We'll get to all of that. I watched that game. I thought that was a pretty good game. There was one incredible moment in that game Zion. Williamson has you're looking at the screen goes to your right side blocks jump shot could've put it literally on the mood hit it so hard. And I will was there. We'll talk to Wilbur later I texted wilpon ago. All my God. Did you see that Blake? Of course, he sought to block everybody in America saw that. Did you see the side view of it not the front on the side view of it? He. It appears to be they barstool posted it I retweeted in somebody said that has to be edited. It's I'll show it to you. It's it looks projector. Look, he's a two hundred eighty five pound guy with a forty four inch vertical. Leap. We've never seen this before. Nobody has seen this just watch this from the side. It's jari. He's I mean, fear. He's he's been there for so long. Just this is what he can do so six on them and put them next to the end date. All I did was watch golf. Now. The truth is the Gulf may be over as you hear this. I don't think so it is an it's an eight o'clock Pacific time start today. I think there's only two people left on the course. But I could be wrong about that. You're correct. Okay. There's only Paul Casey. And Phil Mickelson on. The course. So it may be over by the time you hear this. Phil Mickelson has put it out on sixteen. He got. Par Paul Casey still has to believe on sixteen three foot two inches remained for Paul case. Yeah. And if you think about it will still be three behind with two holes to go apart three and a par five points in a par-five. Phil Mickelson played out his mind yesterday, six hundred sixteen he was absolutely great. Now. What is the most interesting thing about it is they had very bad and strange weird weather in California say in that area of California, including hail that blanketed the golf course at one point snow angels. So it was snowed in Vegas. It was really. Yes. So it was two hours of a delay yesterday. Two hours of delay. I knew and everybody knew when they went out at two o'clock eastern. They weren't gonna finish. Because there's too many groups ahead of you. The last two guys are not gonna finish. Phil Mickelson not a slow player. Paul Casey, not a particularly slow player. No, Paul Casey still has an amateur and they're trying to play for the. So you wanna you wanna make sure? That that works out to Jimmy Dunn who was involved in that thing for the first three got some coverage on Saturday did indeed late was basically accused of being a sandbag by Nance by Nance, and by and by Faldo who know him very, well Notre Dame guy a total Notre Dame guy. I've told this story before about the gift that through Brian. We were able to give to Jimmy Dunn, which is seats from the Notre Dame stadium as they were being ripped out for replacement sauce them Jimmy Dunn Notre daring is it. And he said wow on that. And wow is very expensive for Jimmy duck sediments incredibly long, text and the text back got said, that's all. Because I'm sure he didn't think he played particularly. Well, in any case, we're watching I'm watching I'm watching I'm watching, and this is the heart of the matter when you watch this on television. You have no sense of how dark it really is in real life because the aperture. You can't it is really really talking. All you have to say. Wow, it's really dark here at eight thirty and it got really dark at five thirty and it's five thirty there. And it's really dark and Phil says I want to keep going. I got really good eyesight. I think we can play it's so dark. He looked jacked up attacking that play seventeen in just an eighteen with an iron. And then that'll be fine. And it will stop and Paul Casey looked at them like really, no stop and get out of here. Audience psychology. So you see the both touring pros are talking to slugger white the official walking down the sixteenth Phil's trying to use everything in his bag, which is the influence of Phil Mickelson the crowd the position he wants to get as many shots clear once the win, and she's great to the only the only thing that can get in his way as Jim Nance called. It was a big body of water on the left of eighteen right? And lo and behold, Phil has the ability to miss big. And he knows if I can just get to that tee shot hit an iron out there. I can make a bogey in the sick and win in the dark rather. But he can't make an eagle. He can't make a birdie and the ad. It's a Sunday. Where Paul Casey has if you think Ricky Fowler has trouble closing Paul Casey is worse closing. He averages over par on Sundays, given given their relative positions. Both players were correct. And it's interesting that CBS decided to air the full conversations because it's good. It was good. But if I'm Paul Casey, I really feel like the tour is hurt. My. Curated here because I decide I wanna market three three footer where I'm ninety percent under good conditions. The fact that it was hailing there that players have been out there say for twelve hours spike on bumpy greens sixteen which has a lot more sloop than anyone sees my percent, Mike down to seventy five percent. And then the then the tournaments action. And you have Peter cost is his his his coach mentioning his swing looked short. I'm not sure if it's the bad back if he's cold or if it's the pressure of trying to win, but he understands if I many chance I need to go to four and my best chances doing that. When I've had the rest when it's a little bit warmer when I've had when I've had time to prep for those shot, the other bad looked at that he has and this is no full. This is the way it goes. This is genetics fills about six five and Paul cases about five seven five eight and Phyllis towering over him. And Phil looks like not just the aggressor. But the tough guy who's gonna muddle matter what went in Johnston on sixteen looked like he wasn't even. Gonna Mark his ball. Just knock it up to because he knows walking home anything that can hurt me is our stopping right? So that will that will be going on as you're listening to this. I assume that Phil Mickelson will win. But but you never know with him. He could wake on and bomb to into the water. We're no nobody was getting their teeshot into the famous seventeenth pin high. You're playing back into the breeze. You're not gonna have that this morning. So it's much easier. Say for Paul Casey to stuff a seven iron to about tap in range, and Phil you can make a quick bogey there. And then then it's a new tournament. So if he wins rooting for fish, would you know, one quarter of his tour victories, come in the state of California. And and that's where the open will be this year. Yes, not does that not give him a huge boost doesn't terms of familiarity with the course, traditionally the setup for this February tournament where it's soft and spongy you're seeing balls plug on the greens really has no carryover for what you'll see in the open. But it is familiarity, by the way, one other thing that exactly seven o'clock, but was maybe exactly eight o'clock eastern. Yeah. Exactly. Eight o'clock eastern when you were watching CBS that was the end of the Gulf seven o'clock the end of the Grammys because they went to Grammy red carpet, and they went to the Grammy red carpet because unless fill, you know, unless he had nineteen holes in one like the leader of the Korean Republic unless he had that they hit the Grammys are going to crush that. And they were going to get a fifteen they were also moving away from the ocean in that time, they didn't have the pretty shots in the Pacific. So in any case, how can we did golf channel? I'm sure it'll be on a PGA tour livestream. You can get it on. You. Don't think it'll be live on the golf channel. Now day probably the golf channel have that off channel. So well off yet, it you don't get it as we said about the Washington Post good. That's the end of the first segment. Michael wilbon will join us when we return, I am totally Kornheiser. You're listening to the Tony Kornheiser show. This is the Sheri's berries air. I wish Tori was here. Tori, love Sheri's berries. It's just wonderful.

And I will redeem thanks so much for using on your show to the songs I submitted in the past one by John Gorka and the other by Liz Longley. I love the original music on the show. I noticed that the great Brown. Jim Brown went to the most recent Super Bowl. I saw several shots of Jim. And that gave me an idea. Jim turns eighty three on February seventeenth. So the terrific break-up song written by Pierce, beddis, fabulous title, just like Jim Brown. She is leaving great seemed to be the perfect song to play to say goodbye to football season. Happy birthday to Jim Pierce's terrific. He's written hit songs for Garth Brooks. And others buddies terrific performance zone. Right. Isn't that nice to have written songs for Garth Brooks, automatic money? It's just biggest biggest country music star ever of all time. Yes. Period of all fill. Speaking of Notre day. I mean on a terrible. What a weather day like today. Yes, sold it out. Thousands of people Michael wilbon joins us now. A lot of things we have a lot of things to talk about wilpon. We'll went to Duke for Jinya because we'll wife Cheryl is a graduate undergrad of the university of Virginia. But she is also a graduate of Duke law school who does she root for. And who does she try to get you a Mattie to root for working? Okay. Undergrad experience. Tony. She called him the best for user life. So that's that's like slight that hurts. Yeah. No, it doesn't because I same thing about my time at Evanston. But so so she she'll Duke them. She's she'll for Duke. And you know, she is. Law school classmates, Jay Bilas and Quin Snyder. And so she is a matter of fact, she and Bilas were chatty at courtside on Saturday before the game. We went we went very early young Matthew likes to watch warm-ups and layup line and all that stuff. And so it was it was quite a scene. I was gonna say is a star studded group. Can you tell people who was there? Well, he I mean, you start with the biggest star the universe and certainly in basketball, and that's LeBron James James with Rajon, Rondo and can't call. We'll pope and guys get short trip. The after the game because the game started at six game a little time because they played Phil yesterday. So obviously Charlottesville Philadelphia's not a long trip. And so those guys are there with you know, the bronze camp Rich Paul, and and guys, and so it was that was the case. And of course, you had one of duke's, you know, I don't know to me dukes of them do. Two or three things graduates for to for me. He may not be decorated his Christian late number Grant Hill to me is dukes most famous graduate, right basketball, but context one of them anyway, and Calvin Janet hill who are, you know, recognize obviously in this region in their own right? And you know, it was just it was a big don't don't think you've been to the arena got the new one not the new John Paul Jones. It's to me. It's the best arena in the country. Wow. Because it's not Rupp arena or or dean dome with twenty four thousand seats. I'm guessing I'm going gonna say it's fourteen it is just beautiful it's small it's intimate. And as it's my I look I've been every arena every arena and to me. This is the best renew the country to watch game and. Nailed it fourteen thousand five Ninety-three capacity. Well done. Thrill for me about celebrities thrill for me was I'm walking in. And I gotta wait shirl had to do something with something in the car, and I'm walking in and standing in the cold little bit and carpools up a figure this out. And it's Ralph Sampson speaking of most famous the most yes, the most famous Virginia. Yes. Yes. Other than Thomas Jefferson. In virginia. That's right. He founded so so let me let me get to this to to give people some context, you may assume that that people like the Brown James wanted to go and see these freshmen who are going to be playing in the league next year. But also the Brown James played on the Olympic team from might she chef ski and loves him. And is the only I would say the only coach that LeBron actually welcomed as a coach and listen to now the Olympics are different, obviously. But right might I mean, they're close Kobe. Yes. Yeah. And both those guys have have that circumstance that we did not go to for your colleges, and they they love she chef ski. And so for me, Tony so walk. There was Ralph and Ralph Sampson you walk in with first of all twenty Ralph like he's thirty five years old eight looks great good thousand great is enjoying his life. And I this is not my first time. I I go to Jinya time two year. And I want him seeing Ralph socially doing things shero there. And and tasha Williams the person who's responsible, I guess for my marriage since she introduced us tasha, I believe it was one of the, you know, obviously all players at that level and have have tutors study group and all that tasha was one of one of those Ralph. And so they don't think back with Ralph a long long way and Ralph is just pleasant and is fun to be around. And I saw him in and people that you know. You love their crate little little I've always liked Penn grad, and he went down to become an assistant coach at Virginia under Terry Holland. And then he became the for about a million years and was a steward of all Judas. Great successes. Yes. In the Atlantic department. So it was all of that was great in the old days as Mike, and I know and other people don't realize you had a coach, and maybe to assistance and Terry Hollands to assistance Craig little page in Jim Larranaga. And that was it not like like now with eighty three assistant sitting on the bench. So the players don't know where to sit. Yeah. Then it's just that you wrote that's on the road. The road probably recruiting. So do beaten Virginia twice home and away. This I won't use the word decisively on Saturday nights game. But Duke every time for Ginny got to a position where if they made the next basket, it was a real game Duke made a basket or made a steal. So if I don't go hi as decisively, I will say, they they beat them without a doubt, they beat them. I look at for Jinyan, Mike, and I think for Jin is one of the top five teams in the country where they are. I mean. First of all as far as I'm concerned. I've watched portions of almost all the games. The matter do play the a+ came to play their best game of the season. I can tell me they beat Kentucky by hunt. But that doesn't that's a game one that just and I think that's a neutral court do play their a+ game Saturday. They their eleventh in the ACC in three point shooting. Thirty one percent. Sixteen three at one point. Yeah. And so they played their game and Virginia had two issues. One Rome's little banged up. Right now, he played he plays. Well, but he's not healthy right now. And the kid I can't think of his name is d keep a he he had a concussion so for the concussion during the game. So to they Bank into each other to kiss. Thank you top five players and their best their most important players ties around their best pair most important lab. -solutely? He you know, they they weren't right? And so I don't know what this means that they're probably gonna meet each other again in the ACC championship game Duke loss last year. Carolina. I think in Virginia beat Carolina and the championship game new team. Obviously for Duke. Hasn't lost an ACC game in two years other than to Duke right there. Virginia is really really there at Chapel Hill their schedules tough night or tomorrow. Four Louisville games still left. So let me ask you this. Because we I I assume I assumed at the beginning of the year that you were right about this. But I'm going to ask it now Bilas went on the air. And he's an ACC guy Bilas said he thought the ACC was stronger than the big ten is no question. Those are the two strongest conferences. But do you agree with that? Because I know you're big big time. No, no. I think the big ten is best top to bottom and the tomato is important because I can't even I'm so sick over what happened with northwestern. Iowa young. They made a great comeback in the second half. I can't talk about that. Okay. So that's one question down scratch. Scratch back that that we can do that to Iowa and have fifteen point lead. And I was city late. Yeah. It it talks about the strengths of the lower part of of our conference ACC to me doesn't have that. So I'm an we can beat up on each other in a way that people aren't look Michigan's gonna lose a couple more games. It doesn't mean to me. I mean, it doesn't mean to me that they're not as good as the top. It means that they're challenging away to the ACC teams are not well, you do Virginia will are likely to lose a couple more than likely to. I don't know. Really? I don't know said four Louisville games. You must lose lose them. They have some games as a matter of fact, Tony they probably will which means that's what I'm talking about every firs again, you think the ACC is stronger topic, but the kondabolu Illinois team that's nine and fifteen but his beat Maryland. And michigan. State. Yeah. Man, Illinois, northwestern Penn State, the the records aren't good and conversely temple records in conference. But if playing another conference who told me that the other day, I talked to somebody NBA scout. Who who who does this sees everybody? And he says to me knowing what to north western. Hey, listen, if you guys in the Pac twelve this year, you'd win twenty two games twelve it's no good. So let's let me get to this the Williamson block, what was it? What was it like in the arena when he blocked that jump shot? I thought to the kid don't don't don't pump fake, dude. Do this shot. It was a bad path. And he caught it low and he had to go any didn't. He didn't. Hurry it like. Yeah. Do crowd. So there's no celebration of it. Right. But so that, you know, look things I am sin in person. And that's my first time. You know, he's a wonder of the world. I, you know, it's funny. You know, Matthew going early in these games we stayed late. We were laugh people out of the arena the laugh people out of the arena because we got the just go hang out with the do kids. Just hang out with them the big they're waiting for bus the plane, whatever they're going back that night. And so Matthew was able to go up, and, you know, kids came over p kids who watch the show trae Jones a delightful delightful, delightful, kid SMS, you introduce yourself need introduce himself, and I play point guard. Trae Jones's dappling them up and trail much bigger than you think. He is not a little when do comes out twenty. They look like an NBA team really not on the high. End where NBA teams all have four seven footers Duke didn't have that. But they have from the position of one through four. It's just like my God, really and down Williamson. You know, as Matthew comes over later that the he along with Mr. Barclay and LeBron James that's the biggest hand I've ever shaken. I said, yeah. Well, you he just engulfs us the biggest kid you've ever seen. He's not tallest. You know, he's having thick and goes forty four inches vertical average NBA player of average MBA height. But they they are they're impressive too. Because they just you know, would do the way they somebody says something real television, Dave separate Mirghani. And he said you like this teams likable, which I sort of took offence at knowing. Many people on a lot of teams. They're always likable in my opinion. This group may be a little different in there in that. They're so young player eighteen and yeah, they appear to be conduct themselves like young men, which and gracious and introduce -able young men, and I was telling I was just mentioning that to Grant Hill, and he was marveling at it. 'cause grant new he said, I was like I got to be like that when I was twenty one, you know, he's exaggerating because was probably that what he's talking about the parents. And you got a chance we got a chance to talk to the parents of these. They're just like just hanging out. And it was it was a great day for me for that reason. Much more than the game was the pre-game seeing the people that I've in some cases of known all don't Ralph Sampson my entire adult life, and it's great to see him as he is now, and you know, Grant Hill Tony of since south lakes high school. He was telling me about coming back to rest and having his jersey his high school jersey retired. And I grant you know for that game as well as Saturday. Where's to me? It was your wife's young tour. A said, no she said seventeen years of my basketball's enough. She's done. And I get that. I completely understand that. And so the pre the premium post-game stuff were the highlights of my day. Even those are pretty darn good game. Not epic like game. Darn good game. And there could be one more to come. Yeah. No. It was it actually was that had this thing from Tracy to tell you about. But you sucked the air. What did that? She says it state Representative Brad Halbrook of Shelbyville that's in downstate, Illinois Shelbyville. Yeah. Introduced a Bill urging congress to make Chicago own state co sponsored by Chris Miller of Robinson and Darren Bailey of Louisville, those are all downstate counties. I'm assuming says downstate residents disagree with you cog on gun ownership abortion immigration policies. We don't want them either to be my own state. So yes. And hoping is we can oppress them, right? So Tracy suggested you could become the governor Chicago good like that. That would be funny except that they're serious. There was a jingle few years many years ago four probably kid is a jingle jingle went like this trying to get people from Chicago to visit all those places you just named we wouldn't be found dead. And the jingle with something like this just outside your own back door. There's a place called Illinois. And I would say yes outside the back door. And I, you know, so let me just tell you.

I mean, we're talking about UVA their form review played with with route twenty. All the guy does is win everywhere. He goes. Yeah. He was. Deserves a massive amount of credit. He's pretty chill gone guy on his yacht in the Bahamas. Brian sitting there waiting. Hi, it's only for Lindsey Vonn, but she goes out winning a bronze medal final race of skiing career varies for Luca wrote a piece that runs on a one it's an actual appreciation of Lindsey Vonn Lindsey Vonn and we've talked about this before. And I'm Brian should talk about this. Because he knows the kind of pain that football players have to play Lindsey Vaughn goes down the mountain. There's no snow. That's is. Great downhill hair on ice. She's broken every bone in her body two and three times. No, calls only quit. She's only quit because she she's in pain constantly. This is our last race. And she won a bronze medal on her last race. I got a broken rib. It's a month. I hear you know, I can't I can't get down on the ground do anything. She races with broke football players when you compare like Lindsey Vonn and football players that Lindsey Vons in a in a category by yourself. I caught a little bit of it last night at the hotel, and they're talking about how one point she was racing without an ACL. And she's he didn't leave at home. Optional and what's really interesting is you can see when when a young man suffers an injury like that. You can see the mental anguish in terms of the comeback. And you will literally see a transition. Okay. The confidence is back. He's playing back and full speed. She's out. She take it back on those skis and go down that hill, she wiped out two days before it's astounding and somebody who works in athletics. You can't have anything but great appreciation for it. And and she ought to be celebrated. I mean, that's yes, amazing. She's thirty four years old if she didn't break every bone in the body multiple times, she do this. Oh, haunted her off to know mountain. I don't if you watch any any of her crashes. I don't understand. No padding. Smashing into things at sixty seventy miles an hour. I don't understand again. She gets up I fell on the ice among ago, I broke a rib July. This is the quote, she had you'd be interested in this vicinity. She's I'm literally tapped out, I can't cry anymore. I want to cry but it's dry. It's not easy thing to feel your bones hitting together and continue to push through it. But hearing about Tony Kornheiser persevering. She finishes with eighty two wins. We'll couple second only Ingemar Stenmark is there. She brought him in just Marquette like two and a half weeks ago earn Robbie rough not. Coke. Because of the nature of her sport. You know that it's so seasonal and regional and all of that. I don't think she appreciated nearly the way she ought to be appreciate I bet. I bet in Europe. She's probably doc star. She's given. Yeah. So okay. Go ahead. I know you wanted it took the latest with Bryce Harper many mature, what is it? What is it? They both signed with the nationals. Morning soon reporting, but the reporting well, the giants have appeared as you cut me on Roman this bond. They met with them over the weekend. Meeting the giants. Nobody's meeting apparently went longer than expected which was a good sign, and it appears the delay one offer shorter than he wants. Yes. Yeah. And there was a report that the Yankees may or may not have made an offer to many Machado. They suddenly met with him in joy that meeting, but there's no formal offer accurate report. They may or may not have thank hostile reporting. I've seen and I do a Michael fouls closer. But it seems to me that the biggest offer maybe to me when we know publicly, but the biggest best offer is made to Bryce the NATs. Offer turned out of years and money. Yes. In terms of what we know in a lot of that is if your team you're trying to keep any of those offers closer, I got news that bargaining chip. But if he were to go to the giants and get a short deal with a lot of money, it allows him to bridge himself to a future champion let let's say he does not win in San Francisco because they're rebuilding. He gets the city. He gets a big franchise. He gets a big market. He gets west coast. And then once he moved ones it's easier to move again can hand. Pick your team and your third say sink his contract up with Kris Bryant, and they can take their talents to south beach. There's there's one theory that they're just one of them is waiting for the other design because then once that guy signs will be a number of teams competing for the remaining place. Understandable is well everybody. That would be sitting here February about this. Nigel know what JD Martinez signed February twenty something last year so later. Yeah. Didn't seem to hurt him. But yes, I mean he signed in late February. So it is late. But Mr Tony, I wanna say Ellen Coney trails. This is somebody passed away after the show on Friday, but album Finney passed away great actor out Finney. We started out as Tom Jones did a million different roles five Oscar nominations. Erin brockovich. Did you see Miller's crossing? Yes. Yeah. It's a terrific terrific movie. Iraq thing I could be wrong in this. I think Miller's crossing was the first cone brothers movie. It is a cone by this gets the first one. Yeah. It's just terrific. Yes. Also, I don't know if you heard this about Warner Wolfe. Hear this. If you had him not facing. Go wrong. Eighty one year old Warner Wolfe surrendered Thursday on felony criminal mischief charges for damaging assign outside is Florida community. Now, why did he do this because he's been cling blending about? It for longtime says it's racist. The community's name is classics plantation states. And he wanted to remove plan is people who who knew about this more at what point did he realize that that was the name of the community that he bought into? See his mugshot. No, not not flat. Or no. Warner what me to her Noam them. Yeah. Like, a young Gary Braun? Yes. Damage estimated at just eleven hundred dollars. But it is a found is he going to jail. What state is that in Florida Florida's he going to jail. Kale doesn't say I don't think I think he agreed to pay for all the the damage repair. And then Kenny do it again, if you pay for it each time can continue right? Will they change the name? I think that that's probably up for debate point. And I know you are a lot of communities in a lot of states say plantation. I'd say plantation there is a city in Florida. Yeah. It's right near you know, it's right near Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale, plantation, Florida. My cousin Marilyn lives in it. I never I mean that was the name ever Kurt me. But maybe they could change that. I know you wanna talk about the Grammys didn't I when as long I didn't stay long with the Grammys because the only person I recognized was Michelle Obama nailed it. And I felt that she probably wasn't up for artist of the year or anything like that. I did see Dali Parton for some reef. But I didn't. And there was an illusion that today. Ross your friend, Diana Ross, Diana swimming. Yeah. But I didn't you know. I didn't know what I knew the guy in the post would be angry because he's always angry. If rap doesn't win every single thing, including the country music categories that guy gets angry. So I the Casey musk album that one album of the year is I mean, you have to kind. I don't know. Country. But she's outstanding and guy childish Gambino four. Yeah. No. I knew his dad out of the Gambino. Yes. And I knew the cousin Carlo Gambino channel.

Regulus and rice and peppers and onions and the rice had a tomato sauce base to the food was just great. Absolutely great. I was very very thrilled. Capital girl was fine. Thanks. Appreciate it. Yeah. All good. So here we go. As Brian knows. Although he was disappointed today that we'd the Notre Dame flag out. We are Notre Dame bar. We have the helmet. That's Brian gave us right in the middle of the bar. The the gold helmet. I would I would talk about I thought your season. I'm sure this tremendous disappointment at the way the season ended in the playoffs. But I thought it was a great great season. It was a wonderful journey, and I will say this the Mr Tony. I've been la- cheeser Ede a lot here in the last couple of years. Yeah. I've got I've gotten a bunch on our walk to the stadium on game day that forty to fifty thousand people and somebody will scream out cheery. I got it in high school in Dallas, Texas, a principal came running down the hallway, but the best one ever was pre game at the Cotton Bowl. One of the game officials. Came over. And said, hey cheese. Are- him. I gave him this. Look, he goes, how'd, you know, Mike, and Mr Tony as just lucky, you know, butt of all plays minutes later you were giving him a salute. How about something, you know, for the? No twelve now twelve now at Notre Dame as twelve anywhere is incredibly difficult. So there were there were as a result of what happened in the championship game not this year. But last year when Nick Sabin put into because he said, I gotta have this. I can't I loved Jalen hurts. I've gotta have this on on the field as a result of that two teams that made the playoffs. Two of the four teams have made the playoffs did the exact same thing. You did it and Clemson did it Clemson put in the freshman Trevor Lawrence and you put in Ian book. And and these are moves that I'm not sure would have been made five ten twenty years ago. Well, I think I think Brian Kelly deserves incredible credit and chip long our offense coordinator, and I was a I was a part of some of those meetings because on Mondays the three coordinators will meet with the head coach. And we'll talk about the week leading up. And and the discussion was had coming out. Of of game three. And and look Brandon wimbush should not been an average quarterback force. I think he was like sixteen and three or some twenty five. Same situation that takes that takes conviction. And I'll tell you what the other thing in this day and age, and I'm highly sensitive to this stuff because this the world I live in. But the way the Jalen hurts conducted himself in the way that Brandon wimbush wonderful conducted themselves are, you know, speaks to the quality of people they are their families. But and it's our world is very very small. There was a time that Ian book was sitting in my office as the head coach at Nevada offered him a scholarship, and I was very upset that he committed the Washington state, and he told me he was one hundred percent in what Mike Leach in the air raid. And then Notre Dame offered and all of a sudden, you know, but you know, it was it was a great journey. Our guys. To to go twelve and others pretty special. And it was interesting. We did the season ended with there's no doubt, Clemson house, credibly talented. Oh, Mr Tony that defensive line has got why would Nick or Daboh why go to the NFL where you only have one first round draft picky year when you could be Clemson and coached eight of a month Defensor at at, you know, an Alabama in any given year they've got four or five first rounders play. So. Trevor Lawrence is absolutely the real deal. And I I was shocked at how imposing physically me. He is a big Deutz Eliza like, I would call monster. Not the first time. The season. A little birdie told me the following thing said when you look at Georgia Clemson and Alabama there in a league beyond everybody else. Right. Yeah. And I felt that way. But I certainly believe in coach Kelly said this, I think we're closing the gap. And you know, we call it a little bit of grief following the game the rate Gary was there sponging off me like he does to take her. Unbelievable. But we're calling it out. It's it's a it's a three three game early in the ball game. We 'cause we cause a full full a kickoff. I think we've got it first and ten on twelve going in replay reviewed it and overturned it. And according to my father who has a lot of patients for fficials, really, bad bad term. But. You know, we lost our best corner in the first half. And you know, it just got going sideways a little bit. And then I shouldn't and Kristen probably everybody in the room to a certain degree feels this. I should stay off social media. There's nothing game. Obviously, we're we're really polarizing just, you know, listen, a loop better because he couldn't get it. He got waitlisted. Listen to solicit that Georgetown basketball fan who wants to bang on Notre Dame football fans. I got nothing. Oh, let's be honest person. That that the narrative for a week was pretty negative. And then all of a sudden you look at halftime of the championship game. And Clemson had score thirty one and literally on Twitter, you could watch the title wave. Hey, maybe Notre Dame won that bad after all. So, but this is a great run. And we got good momentum coming out of recruiting. And we literally have football practice in two weeks from boss. There's March first you mentioned your won't even be signed yet. You'll be your dad is running the F the lions of American football you over the weekend on CBS proper out rated the NBA which had a pretty good game. It had James harden. And Russell Westbrook. Pretty good draw and a good game that the players you wanted to see performed it hardened forty to forty five Westbrook. Triple doubles. It wasn't like it was relevant graded them with with with elite that I didn't think had had any promotion at all the it's a it's a. Great concept. My Charlie Ebersol started it. Son of dick Ebersol, former head of NBC sports got my father involved in it early. And like you Tony at the very beginning. I was like what is this? My dad is the busiest retired guy known just can't stop. But I don't want to call them the Commissioner his title is co founder and head of football. But he was involved in picking all the coaches, and the general managers how they I sat with them in the kitchen at one point and banged around ideas about how to allocate players because its regional the colleges are set up. So that there's regional interest for these teams a lot of the talk was about why did the XFL fail and some of these leagues and the reality of it. Is there the football wasn't good enough? I mean, the the fireworks and the concerts and the wrestling part of it. Yeah. Yeah. The phrase on that is all had. No. Yeah. And I think what people discovered this weekend and certainly last night. I watched the Aaron tone and Salt Lake that was a really entertaining football game. And the Zona quarterback is John walford who played in a record setting quarterback from Wake Forest probably is six foot six and a half. And and that probably disqualified him from some some people's boards, but he played great and the quality. Football's really, really good. I think their dream is to turn this into a league that college football now has gotten so different from the NFL that they need a place to develop quarterbacks they needed place to develop offense of line because the systems are different in half the colleges in America the quarterbacks don't have to call plane huddle. Everybody looks at the sideline. We hold up a sign in. In. So this is a place to develop young players and the numbers won't hold obviously. But I think that the quality football so good and it's fast paced, by the way, the play clock is faster. They don't take the long commercial breaks. You can watch a game in two and a half hours and the ball is being snapped. They've got some interesting rule changes sky judge that can essentially step in and correct any miscall it anytime. There's no kickoffs. Which you know, I I'm a special teams coordinator trying to legislate my job out of football. But know, it's I think I think it was a great debut. The numbers were good the numbers will sink a little bit. But I wonder because with the XFL they had ten million people the first yet and by the fourth week. There was no league on CBS broadcast this week. I don't know that in sports cable. But that's fine. It's eight teams is advisable. They don't wanna. Be the NFL. I think it's viable in this regard. And I don't think the XFL will be when it comes back because the leopards don't change your spots. It's going to be the same bluster, and it's not necessarily going to work. I think that this is viable is fifty million people watch the Super Bowl fifty million people all you need is five million of them with bedding to care about your and your coaches are household names six of the eight, and I think that's a tractive to the players because ultimately their goals to try and get back to the NFL. And. Yeah. Established the NFL coaches in Randy Mueller, Phil savage. I mean, there's some really really well thought of. Football people in this league. I will share with you. What story this summer? We we have a house family house on Cape Cod. All the kids are up there. We kind of do Christmas in July because we all work in football. We're never together for the holidays, and we're all up there Dunkin donuts coffee sitting around the table, and we had the they had the eight franchises. But had not picked the names yet. And we just sat around the table over munchkins spit spit ball names on my wife got for the eight fleet. Great for San Diego, a great. The the express, you know, and the the Birmingham iron. I mean, there's some really good names. So it's been fun to watch the thing. And God bless my dad's doing it. I think so. Yeah, that's what I wonder about is thrilled doing it. Or is. It a grieving for it. Just it's all over. He gets his football fix without having actually win or lose games on the weekends, which you know, that that's what ages us when you kill yourself. And it doesn't go your way. And in the fact that he can be around football people. And and you know as much as he's good at being a talking head on ESPN. But yeah, he he speaks to the Kremlin audience. Look, he's hey, you're making three different teams to Super Bowl. Yeah. I mean, I'm not, you know, again, Tommy Friedman, and I between us we have three. Well, we'll pull you wit three times three different teams. That's a big deal. I he enjoys the media stuff. He really loves the radio. He does he does Sirius satellite out of his house. And then he broadcast the games. Freeze penny loves the radio broadcast. But I know that, you know, this has been exciting for him, and it gives them football fix and what we hope it works out tone. Just a preview. At Georgia at Michigan at Stanford. We got sort of interesting. Temper twenty-first early in the season. That's gonna be. Makes the schedule ranked eight or eight or nine basically right in the top ten but at Georgia at Michigan San Francisco. Hey, man, we got spring practice on March first Georgetown at Bucknell.

Get a curse words. But it gets the job done. I look forward to yelling at solicit one day. Anyway, love you guys on more quick turn. After listening to the story on Thursdays news about the amorous auto accident. I had one question. I know the accident will show up on it. But where do you think they indicate hood humped on the Carfax from Jim Flynn in colebrook, Connecticut? Tony it sounded like you were confessing to prior plagiarism come to think of it. There were passages. And I'm back for more cash that were reminiscent of Ulysses. Molly bloom. Blue blue bell, generally Elber Ireland, Mike from Berkeley Jinya on Friday. You come into the two were wrong selectively occasionally close, although I suppose something that happens on a daily basis would be occurring in some sense occasionally in the same sense that the sun rises occasionally from Justin Campbell and in Lexington Kentucky one of the friends. I watch the Super Bowl with works for craft beer company here in Lexington and quality control. He drinks payroll day what a life when the Bud Light commercials about corn syrup came on. He scoffed they use rice in their beer. That's probably worse than corn syrup. He explained exclaim. So there you have verifiable proof by the director of quality control. It a Crafter company of using corn syrup, and you'd be affirmative action is better than what does. I'm again stunned stunned stunned about the campaign against corn syrup, but I like bowed light. And I think their commercials are fabulous fabulous Marvin Goldberg about six blocks from chatter in Washington DC, dear Tony discussion of hearing. Aides last week reminded me of friend of mine, recently, I met him for dinner as he sat down at our table. He told me just purchase the best hearing aid money could buy I paid over four thousand dollars. I said not knowing how much not knowing much about hearing aids. I asked what kind is it whereupon? My friend looked down his watching ply to court. That's funny. I need hearing. From a Tanya Assam in Chicago, Illinois. I'm quite surprised to hear you've given Jill Abramson such a pass considering you killed Carol's favorite ex-boyfriend every chance you've gotten meddling. You don't care about things in so far as affect you personally. But I cannot imagine you being that self absorbed. That's very very funny because because he tried to pass off Bob Dylan. She's got every two needs an artist. You don't look back as work take the dark out of the nighttime. She can paint the daytime black you start outstanding proud to steal or anything. She sees you end up peeping on Accua keyhole on your knees hurt somewhere for God's thought.

Bonus: Rainbow Magic at the Belmont Rocks

"Although, we like to think of our lgbt spots as permanent places that will always be there. The reality is they come and go after all for much of human history. People have been nomads moving from place to place today, writer and historian. Owen Keenan joins us to talk about the Rainbow Magic at Belmont rocks, a very public space in the heart of Chicago's Lakefront Park where gender and sexual non-conforming folks hung out in the sun to find community and a little bit of love in the early days of the gay rights movement. The Belmont locks are not what it used. Used to be, but so many people have fond memories of what the place was that Owen has started a community project. A place for us lgbtq life at the Beaumont rocks where people can submit their photos and stories of their time spent at the rocks. Listen as we talk about why the Gay Beach isn't the same thing. It's the rocks, the legacy of Chuck Renzo and I m L. and Jim Flinton, the baton club, and how Chicago became an international city of cross dressers and Leatherman, I'm foul swiffer.

They thinking visit cooking with drag Queens Dot Com, not just for today. But forever. Our guest today is historian and writer Owen Keenan. WHO's working on a new book? A place for us lgbtq life at the Belmont rocks, a community project documenting gays spaces as they change through time and space. Our. Welcome back. So what are exactly are the Belmont walks because of the season veterans? CHICAGO'S GAY scene. They're they're very well acquainted with. As a place where we could seek sex in the Lake Michigan. Lakefront share. Yeah. The rocks were the Limestone Block outcroppings between diversey harbor and Belmont Harbor, and there are also included the green that was to the side of that. I, think the the whole reason that makes the rocks interesting is that I mean there's the sexual aspect definitely. But there was a lot of social interaction that went on there to you. I think of it as sort of the Berlin. Wall. But horizontal instead of dividing people and brought everybody together to go the both of them were covered in graffiti. The great things about the Belmont rocks before the US, Marine Corps of Engineers Army of engineers. To call right, but they came in and and controversially they cleaned up the lake front and made it this modern thing that we see today in. CHICAGO. At the time, it was famously covered and all this wonderful graffiti that really captured the rainbow lgbt diversity embracing sexuality embracing life-affirming philosophies that were known for internationally. Yeah. So much of the graffiti was colorful they were. There were at Chiens. There were carvings getting just sort of sweet things like It would have the date and it would say on this date and K fell in love with crm. I know. You'd. Down on. Those a lot of also. Lot of sexuality and pictures of dicks with wings and rainbows, and but there were also interesting because they were kind of these tribal drawings at the same time. So it was. Like, it created this incredibly erratically charged atmosphere, but at the same time is a very social atmosphere. and. Most, urban environments have had that scene to some degree I mean, yes. In the age of hookup, APPS and the Internet, those scenes are sort of becoming an antiquated notion to some degree you look at. San. Francisco or new. York City with New York. City appears was very similar, but there's something really special about the Belmont Rocks Chicago wasn't there to me the down rocks most important because they developed. They probably came to a peak in the sixties and the seventies, and what's fascinating to me is that was this claiming of a public place people were out doors. They were coming together, and this was at a time when they're claiming public space out in the sunlight, and that's an in an era. When you know the borrows didn't have windows. If bars had windows, they were reflective glass or painted glass. was wanting and desiring to be private and hidden, and the Belmont rocks were those reaction to that, and so some degree it was, it was out in the open. It was where anybody could see this. Yeah. It was a, it was a really good metaphor for sort of sexual and gay liberation because people could be out could be together and they really built community I. Mean You re. Re, there was a very big sense of camaraderie because it was out in the open, but it was also in many ways. It was still kind of private because you're basically hanging around these jagged rocks at the time. Right. So you could or on grass nearby there. So for a lot of people may have been harder to kind of get to the grass was in quite private but. The. Rocks themselves. If you would stand at the rocks and looked down, you would think you couldn't see anything. But since the rocks dipped and had different caverns. All of a sudden. You'd be looking down in sale nobody's here, and then all of a sudden you'd see. A. Couple of guys get up from where it's like, you couldn't see. Your. Unless you're on a boat, you're not seeing anything there. I remember going to the Belmont. On Saturday in the middle afternoon in. The mid nineties here in Chicago, and there was like a guy showing his dick for everybody to see, and he's like look my back. It isn't a big hot. Standing there like some sort of neo drunken. Greek. God and rising from Lake Michigan and everyone's going Oh. Mary won't. See. The thing I. Love is that that there was so much of a claiming of that sexual power and just. Comfort in people's Skins, and. The fact of the rocks going away and that being lost and that sort of important. Pivot Point, I, guess lgbtq history was really something that drew me to this project because you could see this fragile piece of history disappearing. You know it's it's not getting any clear in memories and there aren't any more people learning about it, and so you're saying like it had it's kind of like in the sixties and Seventies. That's kind of like for for gay life here in Chicago. Is that kind of interesting that that was the area they went to. Town. Really. Didn't become a thing right until like the late seventies and the eighties. Say. I. Would say the Belmont rocks were also the that was and then more the sixties and seventies when I thought things got started. But since had been asking for submissions, I've gotten pictures from nineteen fifty eight. Oh. Gay guys hanging out. Yeah. So shared on social media, some photos that you had had, and that's ignited this project until about that. Yeah. I worked down in Lakeview and. It was when I started riding my bike to work. Maybe may I thought? You know I'm ten minutes early? I'm just GONNA. Take a detour over by the rocks. See what's going on and I hadn't been there and probably a decade. And it had just it looked like a landing strip. It was just very sterile. Very flat. And no one was there and it was beautiful day and no one was there. I took a picture and post on facebook same. Basically, the rocks are dead and I was overwhelmed by the response of people saying you know, Oh, I loved the rocks and all this stuff. So when I got home I, posted some pictures that I had of you know. Old boyfriends hanging out there, and you know different get togethers at the rocks, things like that, and people started doing the same. It's. It's really something that the were sort of this groundswell of support behind. It's the best kind of project because it's basically you just. put it out there, and people are really very passionate about their memories there and it kind of went on to win two different changes because at sometime in the earliest part of the century two, thousand two, I think you read is they'd gotten rid of some of the rocks and they kind of used other oxygenated more flat. But then most recently, the Army Corps of Engineers came in and just kind of like paved over everything. So you know it's so neat and tidy. Now, there's no real place to hide yesterday. Also more welcoming I. think that's part of the reason why the you know the gays probably went, there is not only they living nearby and it was probably the closest place they can get to to be by the lake. But also you know the straight people probably didn't want to go climb on these rocks exactly when it was referred to as the Gay Beach, it's not a gay beach at all just jagged limestone rocks that you could scale down to get into the water and it wasn't a good swim in the water, but technically, it was illegal. Because, they didn't want you swimming because there was no lifeguard or anything there, and one of the also the nice things about the rocks is. This activity could go on and because it was to the West, there was the lawn there. If the police came, you could actually you had a lot of warning. Go. Train I was there when that happened and people scream and stuff like that. It was like, oh It was it was kind of like the way and you read about this in books we used to have sex in in places. They're not supposed to. There's always somebody on the lookout for the cops coming in now and in public bathrooms or steam rooms or anything like that. There's always like someone you know. Everybody come corrupt up the. Managers. Yeah, there is a lot of that, and again that goes back to the whole sense of community him out of there. I think there was I think there was also a very different aspect to the rocks during the week as opposed to the weekend. I, think the week was much more. Cruzi and sexually active I think the weekends tended to be more social because it was probably more crowded. Yeah. Yeah. And so the my more is watching, yes. Yes, which is good or a bad thing. Never. Drag Queen Joan Jett Black who ran for president in one, thousand, nine, hundred to. Get on the ballot or what's what was the? How far does she go? I know that she was a writing candidate. She had there was had an article in the national examiner that was a you know a profile and. She got down on the Democratic convention floor meaning down on. Public public, city stunt, and it was. Up Performance, art? And Queer nation and she she and I lived together for about three months. After I was like just kicked her out. Impossible to live with but. She she. She would tell me all these stories about hooking up for sex at the Beaumont rocks, and she had a very fond memories of of the place and part of it. It was like it was in the evenings. You would sit there on the lake front and you know sort of discreetly connect with somebody who for economic reasons or cultural reasons didn't feel welcome or able to get into a gay bar. There wasn't a lot of that. I, think one of the the differences to is that I was always a morning person. So it's it's fascinating to me about how the rock seemed to go in different shifts throughout the year throughout different years. Different Times of day. A lot of people would go there after the bars would close. So. I find that fascinating but also the late at night late at night, and then like today in modern day right now, we we have what's known as the Hollywood beach, which is just steps away from home studios here, technically called if you're looking for it on a map, the Kathy oostrum and beach, and in some ways, the landscapes a lot in the sense that it's still very much the same kind of people that are going to it, but it's in the The evening when the sun goes down, there's not a lot of people there in the police are sort of roaming the area to keep people from being sexually active. Okay. They they're even the police go. You gotta go home. You can't. What did they say was riding my bike one time on the bike path and I think it was by the parking lot. Wilson is and stuff like that, and it was a lady cop off her microphone or whatever it is blasting. Guys g last chance for love. Out. I. Think, I, think one of the things to maybe that's a little bit different is the rocks I think came about because of that need to sort of. Express identity and it had this sort of circle. The wagons, kind of feel to it in that the community stayed very much together. and. It was. It was adjacent to the the gay community are the gay ghetto at the time hosted street. I think Hollywood beaches a sign of. It's more sign of assimilation and the people are very much. They're out in the sun, but it's sort of like a more inviting beach like anybody could come there the different when you happened upon the rocks. If you weren't part of the LGBTQ community. You got the feeling. You had just walked into something. I can't imagine. It feeling very welcoming. Sure. I mean, there is a guy who hangs out. We call them the Lizard. Man. Hold on, he might be listed. A. Nude sunbather and he Scott, the silent has been brutal to skin and he insists on sunbathing nude and so. This little fortress for himself out of sand. No. Out of a sort of. All around him and he's out pretty much every day during the summer and I would say that's pretty edgy and. A Lotta Gender and sexual non-conforming people weren't around naked and acting out I had tell one famous drag queen shed cocaine Oliver, her nose. I'd banish. And so she like. We've seen people passing out. We've seen a lot of Richard, street men and his inflatable Unicorn causing a commotion, and there's a lot of social media aspects to Hollywood, beach that we just don't have where everybody's documenting. Yes. And everybody's inviting the outside world to observe this, it's a very different space. It's a public. With. Outrageous LGBT, especially, game in. Sensibilities. Where's the Belmont? Rocks was extremely private. Yeah and I think I think I. Misspoke when I said assimilation, I didn't mean assimilation as much. Hollywood beach. Time period has become being gay as much or lgbtq is much less some. Isolating much isolating than it was. During, the era of it's it's more open. Now, of course, this the world we back them, we're wanting to fight for, didn't we get what we wanted, and now we're sort of like we're sort of like a dog that chases after the car nostalgia. Always Great. We got the car, and then we're like now what you know though Anina, there's that. But at the same time I started going to the Belmont rocks in the in the early eighties and into the mid eighties it started to change because the Belmont rocks also were the area that kind of. Experienced the whole HIV crisis in a in a really subtle or not. So subtle way in that, all these people. Who might go. Out. Sunbathing. Lesions were the first appearance, you a lot of times on the body, and suddenly that would start to appear. So you had like. A Like the end of the rocks was kind of like a the break of generation, it felt like to me and I think. It was a political statement to show your body when it was an healthiest form at the height of the AIDS crisis in the public space it was. But at the same time, it was for a few people, but at the same time, I? Think a lot of people in everyday life weren't that Weren't that brave. and. So they they they hid their disease. So they stayed at home or just maybe wasn't as appealing to go out in a bathing suit But I think a lot of times to that that whole generation I know with my pictures I can look through my pictures of the rocks and half the people are gone at least, and so the graffiti on those rocks also became like tombstones. Well, it became a really nice memorial to those to those people, and that's actually what I wanNA. Do a place for us as I really wanted to make this beautiful scrapbook sort of for the community not only to remember that place, but to remember so many people who love that place who just aren't here for whatever reason. I. Think you know the Belmont rocks. Sort of were a precursor to the AIDS memorial quilt and a lot of that graffiti had similar. Sense of reverence, the memorial quilt whereas is remember people that were no longer with us, and so a lot of the graffiti especially in the later years tend to to have solar similar function of remembering somebody who was part of the scene, who's no longer there. Oh, and there were several memorial services that sense I've opened for different stories and memories that people have wanted to share. That's been like a recurring theme to. Cleve. Jones. Stole the idea from Chicago. Basically thousand telling stories. Housed. Once again. So what if some of the Cassini? So you put a call into the community asking for photos and memories and stores. What are some of the things that people have sent to you or or have told you I? I have gotten so many stories. From people who just have incredible memories of of. Just, Wonderful Times A lot of them are very sentimental like I. Remember. This is where was it the rocks when I looked over and saw the most beautiful man I've ever seen, and we still celebrate our thirtieth anniversary of that day when we first met at the rocks things from that to that extent, all the way to What I got A. Quite, a few stories from women One of my favorites is. The first time I went to the Belmont rocks. I had to step over two lesbians having sex. Mad, it was other people as well. Yes. It was a very sexually active space for women as well. I. You know in this is thirty five years ago. So I'm remembering it as mostly gay men, but since I? Sent out a call to the community. I've been very pleasantly surprised at the number of women who who have great memories great pictures. Great History's great sex greats at bread. I'm the Roxie up. And I've gotten. I. Want to also include in this. I WANNA to do different news clippings to someone sent me something the other day. That's a news clipping from nineteen forty seven and it's about it's a it's actually a tragic death at the rocks and it's it's you have to read between the lines, but it's very clear. What's what happened? What do you think happened? People were party Nana vote and somebody fell overboard basically, but it's not only would do. People. Well, I mean that it's like in the Arctic. Oh, we'll say the gentleman owned the boat together. They lived together on, you know what I mean Yeah Code. So, how what do you think people because I think you also taught me earlier that you you've got US admission from like one, thousand, nine, hundred, Fifty, eight. Yes. Kick shares a picture those. Pictures I have. Yes, and it's very obviously a group of gay men Not. But you think like, when do you think games? Really I started hanging out at the Belmont rocks, the boy's town. The Gay neighborhood that we know now is like it wasn't always the center of Gaelic. No, not at all. Truthfully, I thought it was the sixties started doing research for this book, and then you know it's turns out that it's a lot older than that. It might be the fact of the. What we've talked about before is it was kind of uninviting It was sort of hidden in plain sight. One of the amazing things about the rock to me as well as the fact that. There's this LGBTQ. Lakefront and it's kind of in the middle of the city. I. Mean if you go to. San. Francisco. They're gay beach used to be I, mean kind of outside of the city, right? I mean. It isn't sort of you have to travel to. Yeah. Yeah. I. Mean That was one of the unique things about the rocks to is it was just right in the middle of the city law in most cities, they're Lakefront Properties are privately owned. That's true because of the Chicago. Fire. CHICAGO. Has. Is, win the rare situation that are lakefront, is public space. Yes, and it's what makes Chicago. Such an extraordinary city to be part of the city is criticized for not having very much green space when you look at the whole city overall, but we do have amazing park in the in the in the. Along the lake, but it's really like our biggest park. and. There's other ones throughout the city, but they're just not as big an robust and as well loved, and and so attended and such a such a close, and when you think about Chicago and you think about like you know when t television shows film the city, they usually film some of the more famous building. Yes, and then they do a lot of shots of lakeshore drive along the Lakefront. Frighten Lakeshore drive is so beautiful is because we have that public space and I grew up in kind of a city, Erie, Pennsylvania, that has a beautiful beach too. But again, it's removed from the city. So when I would see like images of Chicago and was like Oh my God, that's so amazing this building and then you have a beach right there. That's why I moved here and I I grew up in San Juan Puerto, Rico and to me it's Chicago and maybe West Hollywood. Are Some of the few communities in the world that remind me a lot of grants tour. wrinkle, and in fact, now Sandra say. There you grew up in, is now the new gay neighborhood of San Wow. You left a little trail of fairy. Trails me. Yeah, I mean. You know the Beaumont rocks wars. You have a very fond memories of it, but it was definitely a feel like. You. Know it was a bit of a dump and it was a treacherous landscape with those jagged rocks. And people all the time would twist and fall and break their ankles and and you know there is a lot of people who are on the fringes of society that they couldn't hookup for sex any other way, and so the the Beaumont locks was a place for them to be able to connect, and so you know you often had people from other countries or people who didn't speak English or people who are living on the streets hanging out there at dusk sort of looking for sexual activity I've also in doing this too I've I've been kind of surprised at how much and I don't remember this at the time, but like a lot of lgbtq youth would go there too. It was very popular I. Guess You know late in the evenings are. You can't go anywhere else as a hang out spot. Where we have now with the center on halsted that that scene. Would take place at the rocks? Yes. Well, when you're young, you might not have a place to stay. You might have money. So. Let's go hang out in the park with all your exactly, and then the later days on the Belmont rocks and became actually the parking lot adjacent next to it became very popular with African American youth, which again, you know the white owners and the and the people who own property in that neighborhood didn't like that either and so since then sort of they just clear out that whole area at night, just nobody can hang out there. I think you can use the lakefront path if you're on a bike or something like that. But other than that, you're not supposed to be in park after eleven. Oh I thought it was dusk. Eleven I think I might be. I think. But still it's part of it is like you know we tend to think of our gay neighborhoods as these fixed bases. They're just like our identities and our sexualities dynamic. I mean, there's a reason why the lambda. Change. At one point in time also represented gay people. But also to some of these places, you know stick around for years like you're saying, probably these guys from the forties we're hanging out there. If you go down to like Jackson Park people are still cruising for sex there, and it's like they've been cruising for sex since the park was built I do know as as we've progressed. And assimilation as happy. I, think that the changes happening much a much more rapid pace assimilation is such an ugly. Ugly Way. Culturally a culturally inclusive integration. Integration. Yes, you now assimilation means that somehow that we're like being sucked into the, you know the access us or the board and we're losing our individuality. But in many ways, it's not that gay people have really changed very much. Is that the rest of the world? That we've become a part of has become gay or straight people are getting into relationships, they don't have kids much and they're much sexually fluid. We. Think of. scruffy grinder are spaces to hookup for sex, but tender is way more popular because it's the same function for heterosexual people I'm I, think I think rather than assimilation. Maybe I'm more in a cultural way. I, think. I. Think. That LGBTQ. Life at one point was much more like a secret club. I think our club is much bigger now and I think our clubbed isn't quite as closed be as it was at one time, and that is a good thing that's progress. But at the same time, you do lose a certain Missing, yeah and a certain level of identity I think too because that's your identities closed as well. What do you make about this one? A Young Gay Guy? Who is no longer wants to say gay, he wants to say, I'm an ANDRO. That was a blog at came across, but I feel like I feel like i. read that blog edge, it pops up like every four or five years. I. Want to be identified as a game and even though I love man Commun-. ANDRO. File Lesbians in Los Angeles they didn't WanNa, call lesbians they wanted to be called gale. G. O. Y. US guys who don't like anal for guys who don't like anal and there was like a Lotta throughout history in maybe this is just beginning are living in a world that doesn't accept US embrace us that we internalize all that, and we're all of these wanting to have new words and new concepts to define our own sexual and gender identities. Yeah. That's interesting. I mean always think of it as. As, much more complex than needs to be in a lot of ways. I mean people, I think are all individuals they're all complex, but sometimes, I think there's too much splitting of splitting into smaller and smaller groups. It's just a Dick. SOCK IT SOCK? What would? You know what? Part of it is like you know, why is there this ongoing conversation to always redefine and re come up with new vocabulary to define? What is essentially the timeless concept of sexual identities? While you're asking me that. I, wish your story and wish. People trying to come to grasp with themselves and? They're trying to figure out what it is, and so they think some kind of new idea whereas other people are like honey we've been there. I think part of the people are looking for something that fits them. Really, well and I think. A lot of times. Any big term kind of you're like, well, they're kind of describes me, but kind of not. So I think people are looking for clearer descriptors maybe more recently, we've seen sort of evolution of the Word Trans and I it was transsexual. Then it was TV. T S transvestite transsexual with a flash that it became transgender. Then the word just dropped the SUFFIX. suffolks and just was war trans and Trans wasn't enough to put an asterix on it. Right to include Trans and everything else. Then now, we're starting to hear the word gender fluid gender, non binary, and it just these these words just keep on going you know and a lot of women don't like the word lesbian. Ellen. When she famously came out, she said Yep I'm gay and and a lot of young L. gender non conforming people and I use this word because I don't want to ascribe the word translated them because they don't want to use those words. Yes. The Rainbow Children, they. They have all sorts of language that they use to describe themselves and their. Throughout the course of my life and throughout history one word POPs up. That is the most hated word of all. Label. Do. We have to have those labels and you know this week. Announced the end of AOL Instant Messenger. Early. Days of the Internet, you know the concept of the like search engine optimization. Key words and tags me that arose because people are putting words in their profile that would show up when somebody else was searching for something similar to them. And so AOL being the sort of gated internet which we might get to. If we lose network neutrality again, it was this idea that in order to find somebody similar to us, come up with words to describe yourself in to hook up with somebody else and so now. Twenty seventeen. We have an ocean of words in an LGBT alphabet. But back in the day, we have very little words and language to find each other and to describe ourselves, and so it's really important right now and the passing and the ending of AOL Instant Messenger to really reflect upon. How much we were able to learn how to type fifty words a minute motion. Most of the reason why lgbt folks who are over the age of forty today can type so well you? Took typing classes although I did get a D., but a lot of us, I learned how to type through using all AOL Instant Messenger. You know grow Coz. If you wanted to get that Dick, you better type fifty words a minute or four. Just before we move on about that I, I think with the with the. The use of a different terms and with the. With the alphabet as well. I think one of the most important things is that it's just it's As. Long as it can make people feel part of stuff like if it promotes inclusiveness I'm all for it. No matter. It doesn't matter to me what you know what name anybody goes by. Or what they choose to call themselves. I. Mean I I I. Think. The main thing is that we're all in this together, it'd be curious to see if as the circle sort of keeps expanding if we all just. Like eventually all the labels and everything else just follow away because they. Everyone describes the same group. That Sarah Call Himself Omni sexual on the cover of out magazine. Sophie B Hawkins I don't remember Bar free. Exactly. Everybody every single person that I knew at the time they were just like celebrities are stupid. Not wanting to call themselves. It was radical for Ellen. To even say the word gay described herself. We just forget how and when when these paradigm shift, it's so quick to forget how radical use even for someone like Neil Patrick Count to come out as gay. I'm part of the reason he came out is because the Internet dragged him out. You know there were bloggers who were just like, Hey, we saw you kissing the guy at the bar, what's going on them and? Now it seems very commonplace for a lot of entertainers to talk about their sexuality, a very non threatening non-career destroying. Well, now, we question especially, when popstars one girls come out as bisexual? Like, are they really bisexual or they just kind of pandering to the gay? Katy Perry is lady Gaga Bisexual or are. They just want to be able to sell records? Exactly. Did you really grown like it? Wasn't really Cherry chapstick. We want a timestamps and receipts. What's the wildest ever saw at the Belmont rocks? Was it a big giant gee? I, never saw an orgy there. Now, I saw a lot of a lot actually at the rocks was about Voyeurism, an exhibition ISM in my in my experience I never saw actual penetration I saw lots of oral And I. was interesting too is like some people you know they'd be in your peripheral vision and some people. I just sit there and go like man, you had an active morning, Hammett. You you know. Like one person after another. Day Yeah Yeah. No. One would put her. Picnic blanket down. and. have set up some sort of contraption that allow them to blow jobs after blowjobs. Lawley was it was more that they were very, very clear. Visual clues like just eye contact and and it would. It would progress very quickly. The first time I happened upon the rocks I literally was. New to Chicago walking down a long diversity walked by the miniature golf place, the driving range and walked out to the lake and I got to the rocks and I step out there and it was literally like. You. Knew you just walked into the middle of something like you could feel that erotic. You didn't know it was there until you stumbled on it. No divine intervention. Rocks. Come to the rocks stay for the. Land. So What I mean, how do you think it just kind of faded from from the? World. Well I think basically that generation changed. I. Hollywood beach is much more appealing. Volleyball moved up to Hollywood beach was, which was a big thing always volleyball used to be down there used to be on the green. Area. And so. What I'm? I wounded Chicago on ninety five people told me that Hollywood beach was the gay beach. So I kind of went up there and I was like is this really the game beach because I think I was maybe they were probably on a weekend or something of weekday and I was just saying I, don't see many gay people there wanted that kind of like rise into prominence as the gay beach destination and thinking more the early nineties and non I know that in doing this, it seems like the Belmont rock sort of started. Dating quite heavily in the early nineties. So you probably were. The cutting edge 'cause. I. Heard about the rock still when I first moved here I did go. But it was like it was very sparse when I guess. So I was just kind of like a lot of people there. Maybe one guy hanging out with on Speedo kind of looking around on. I could go to their to the sand. Trying to remember what we all moved to Chicago Mark, the ninety, five, ninety, five in the summer of ninety six and undiscovered the Belmont rocks and it was pretty busy that summer and short every year afterwards, it just never was the same way as that first summer experience and to me was just like.

We went back into these private spaces to explore sexuality for the generation before me, it was very much done either in a gay bath house in a gay bar or a public space like the Belmont rocks, and I can see that because as soon as. I was sort of on the cusp of that because a lot of times what I remember is it going from very active at the Belmont rocks to suddenly everyone being on the? One nine hundred numbers that were dollar nine, just a dollar, ninety, nine, a minute. We're hotman. To meet. The Party, walking? Or not. Bloggers like Chris Crocker. He sort of would call African American party lines and creating these personas because you could be anybody you wanted to be on those party lines, you don't have to be who you were, and this is where it's sort of the exciting thing about the Internet and why young people think about their gender and sexual identities in drastically different ways because they're not limited to their physical bodies for their, it's their imagination. Isn't sure. And so you could be anybody you want to be and a lot of young transgender people actually explore that in a very first safe-space by going into forms or or or these marty lines and pretending to be women or men with fascinating subject. I mean, it is a huge generational divide. Between you know, the flesh and blood interaction to sort of your first taste of. LGBT stuff being online or? Now the Belmont Rockstar were Cruzi, but the easiest place, the Lakefront has got to be the magic hedge. Now, I've never been in there, which is they call it the magic, but it's the bird
