Maybe Joe can help you 800. 8590957 give us a call right now. Jonah, and I'd like to begin the show with a little hockey story. As people know, I played hockey in one time, and it's about a good dear friend of mine for many, many years, and some of you will be very familiar. With Ted Lindsay, the terrible Ted. They called him 100 and £65 of dancing Dynamite with a short two inch fused and let me tell you that fuse could blow any time when he was planned the NHL hockey game. Head came from Kirkland Lake, Ontario. His father was a former gold tender way back in the twenties and thirties, and Ted Well, I once asked a mountain, the scars he had in this face, and I think it was on his face alone. 900 some scars he worked out with the Red wing team. 23 times a week down the Joe Louis Arena. He passed away here a year ago, and I had the distinct privilege, the honor of representing Ted in a women's Hockey League and Ted Back In the 19 eighties, there was 87 started women's hockey and Canada and the United States. When the girls got together and called for ice time to rent, ice time and Eddie Edgar Arena in Livonia and the man there said, Well, I'm sorry, we don't We don't rent ice time to Womens Womens hockey team. Well, that's when they got ahold of Ted Lindsay. He called Eddie Edgar Arena. And announced to who he was. And they said, Well, yes, sir. Mr. Lindsey will honor this request. And so the girl's Hockey League started and I had the privilege here just two years ago of being honored to represent Ted Lindsay, who was at the time To l to do so the first time in years and anyways, I went to the hockey games. They had a tournament, I think was six or eight games. And I had to drop the puck in honor of Ted and I had to present the trophies to the winners, and I had to go in the dressing room with the women to talk about how to use a dishwasher of all things that are key game and anyways, a couple of the women were scantily dressed that as they remove their hockey gear, that was quite an experience, but all the time I was there representing my good friend Ted. Lindsay and I asked him to dinner one night now, Ted, you know you were a total gentleman off the ice total. Gentlemen always sign autographs till there was no more to sign and talk and make those speeches and I said, but tell You were such a total gentleman off the ice. But you're awful mean on the ice, and he looked at me square in the face right by the eye, And he says, you know, I wasn't paid. Be a gentleman on the ice. So that's a little story of my little relations whose large in my life with Ted Lindsay, Terrible, Ted. We're going great hockey player and I have the privilege of also skating with him with the Red Wing alumni and several games and we had a lot of fun. Donald. That's the end of my hockey story for you Love your hockey stories. All right, we're making contact. We're ready to go with your phone calls. The number is 808 590. W J r. We're here for you alive Sunday morning, December 27th 6 13 am 800. 8590957. We're gonna go to London. We're going to go to New London. We're going to go that new London, Ohio Far first call Joe for question regarding a tap in microwave oven. This is Ty. Good morning, Ty. Thanks for calling And how may we help you? Good morning, doctor. And a merry Christmas and happy New Year to all of you and your staff. Love the show Love the hockey stories. You know, I have a question. I have a tap in microwave. It's approximately 14 years old. It's one of those under the Cabinet models. It's done good service, but lately lately, the last few months When you open the hatch. Whether it has been running or has been sitting idle. When you open the hatch. You will get A Something comes on and it's underneath. Where that little glass turntable is in there. It's not the exhaust fan. I've I've checked that out. It's I Unfortunately, I have misplace the manual for it, so I was not able to check it out myself. But I'm wondering if I've heard you speak of microwave ovens is having Several redundant switches. So you don't fry your brains when you're operating them. Um S so what happens is the turntable vibrates. There was something on under there. It doesn't spin completely. It just vibrates like there's something Motor underneath. It is trying to work even though you have not activated to microwave. Can you help? Well, number one. It sounds like that motor is bad that stir motor. They call it and why is coming on When you haven't even activated? I don't know the answer to that that zone the control factor. You have touched bad control on this right is not God dials. No, sir. Touch bad, All right, So there's one part of the problem that's starting to react. And so my first comment is sounds that's motor should What do you have a problem with the touch fat or not? When that motor's running, that should be nice and smooth, So that little motor which is rather expensive? I don't know exactly what it cost. That little motors rather expensive. You've got to take the microwave out. You gotta take the casing off of it. You got to get underneath the microwave, and there's only a couple of screws that hold it in place. Again. Expenses of factory We're talking about 14 year old microwave and you don't want to spend too much money. The other thing is on the touch pad. I'd like you to try something that has worked for several cars. Several consumers. Who have explained what to do, and they've written me or call me on the show and said, Hey, it works. And the factor is that the touch pad control senses the electricity in your body. And counter acts what it's supposed to do, so I tell people pull the plug on it. Let's kill the electricity to the microwave oven for one hour. Okay, not five minutes for one hour and then take a perfectly clean cloth. Dampen it. Don't soak it, dampen it with white vinegar. And wipe off that control pad completely and then dried with a piece of Kleenex tissue paper and let's see what happens there. If you call me next week and say Hey, works like a champ. Well, you did the right thing. Okay. All right. I will do so I have heard you speak of that. I will do it. When I get home from work today. We'll give it a shot. And if it if it doesn't care, the symptoms then I guess Mama's getting a new microwave. Okay. She'll be very pleased with that. I'm sure Thanks, Ty. He's very much take care. You take her? Welcome back. It is Sunday morning. It is 6:17 A.m.. And just like when Case occasion was on American top 40. He would.

It isn't remembered. Stay this Monday, December the seventh Every year. We remember what happened when the Japanese pulled off that that surprise attack some cultic cowardly, but it was it was a military attack at Pearl Harbor. On the state of 1941 79 years ago. And that was what led the United States declare war on Japan the very next day and let us to enter World War two s. I just wanted to mention that And thanks to Patrick out Royal Oak, who sent along a note and said, Hey, Just remember this is the anniversary of Pearl Harbor as well And he's absolutely right. That that is what this day is. We should never forget that. Or the brave men and women who who made our country So great bye bye serving in World War two that that is our greatest generation. There's a reason we say that and No. The Japanese with that attack on Pearl Harbor really opened up a lot of eyes and really committed America. Torto to the fight against the evil That was that was a parent over there in Europe. I mean, right will continue here on the Frank Beckmann show and let's welcome in Ah, long time friend. From my days back in the sports world. She's covered the Detroit Red Wings for a little while now, and she's done very well for the Detroit Free press. And she's got a new book out which I got to tell you is really cool. It's called the Big 50 Detroit Red Wings, and it's written by the Lady. On the other end of our wine. The beat writer for the Red Wings for the Free Press. Elaine ST James, who's joining us to talk about the book and I opened it up yesterday. Helen, I gotta tell you, I started reading some of the Mickey Redmond stories and that's later out of the book. But you know it was his dad who told him, he said, and you use he cited in your book always look for the greatness, and that's not just good advice for broadcasters and reporters. Maybe it's good for all of us that at this time in our lives, huh? Welcome to the show. Nice to be back with us. Thank you. I'm very happy to be animal. You will Frank. I agree, 100%, and it was very deliberate that I made that the last message in the book. It's the 50th had chapter. Um, Absolutely, I agree. 100%. It's a good approach to watching hockey. Whether the team is winning Stanley Cups or, you know when winning 17 games like they did last season, and it's a good approach to life and especially Yes, In this incredibly challenging year, I agree on absent looked for the good stuff. Exactly. It's not always easy to find. You know that. I still remember when Steve eyes and it was the captain. I go back to the to this point where When this is in the days when I was working in sports at the station would cover the Red Wings and one day Chris Ilic said. Hey, I want you You got kids, right? So yeah, my daughter loves hockey says why don't you bring into a game and he gave me his seats right on the first roll behind the net at the West End the Joe Louis Arena.

She wasn't very old at the time, and he wraps his stick against the glass right in my face. And she goes, Dad. He knows you like, honestly. Yeah, I think part of you know, I am so fortunate. To love what I do, and part of it honestly, is You know my one of my favorite things that any time I've written anything about Gordie Howe, my my mailbox is flooded with people sharing stories off. You know, it seems everybody who who loves the Red Wings has a memorable story about an interaction with Cordy. Similarly with Steve, You know, I think part of what makes the sports so great is how approachable the players are, Um, you know, I just don't think you see the the ego trips. You see another professional sports on DATs part off, you know, I mean, it's just just what makes them and you know, honestly was. It was such a I So enjoyed writing this this book, even though you know, in some way, I would have had way more time on my hands this year to write it And I'm you know, I would like to say if anybody wants a personalized copy. They sent me an email and agent James at free press dot com because, of course Unfortunately, book signings are not realistic, but it was such a joy to write this book and the publisher said, you know, coming around 70,000 words and I was close to 100,000 words because There's just, you know, this franchise is just so incredible. Well, sure. I mean, all you're going to say is Lindsay able on how and you got 50,000 words on then you got Probert, McCarthy McCarty and then and then you got ice cream in and on down the list and You know Scotty Bowman? Yeah, they're they're all parts that make up the Red Wings history. But I got to tell you, I I'll never forget some of the enjoyable times down there. The Red Wings also held a and I don't know whether people realize this..

"And providing Absolu- some mentoring opportunities and so The local chapters receive some some benefit from that as well and that's really been really defining part of this brand development. Is that you know there's some. There's an incredibly rich historic story that needs to be told just for new generation to understand who this man was. The second piece of it was beyond the brand. What's in the bottle really is a good product and it needs to represent something of integrity and all that and then there's the commitment to the give bath the cause and things we're talking about as well as then the sports marketing which is the idea that introducing this first to People in the boxing community almost respect as a sign of respect for Joe. Lewis meant and did for boxing. If not all Americans so it's really kind of it's been a heady experience in many ways and it's gratifying to see it from what I understand. Joe Louis and Charles is GONNA come in. Hopefully maybe you got some knowledge on this one from what I understand. The Joe Louis won something called the silver or a silver level or the silver award And and you guys getting involved with The golden gloves That level or that award was gone for a while and they brought it back with you guys in naming it for for Joe Lewis Trials. What did it because Joe Louis fought in the in the golden gloves right in back in and thirty three thirty four something like that you have beat on. Do you have a beat on on that part of Joe's history? Yeah I mean the gold gloves. Really how how he made his. I mean that's how you know. That's how a lot of amateur started made all if not most They like I forget. I forgot if it was off the time I had if it was one thousand nine hundred eighty four or nineteen thirty three but the the big thing was he wanted Detroit old gloves which was huge and then and then he went to Chicago for the one the big one was the Chicago Volk Gloves. And you won that. That's what really started. The you know. Propelled him what like certain. Really landing him The the The the the trainers and everything they start giving you know. Put money in them because they say that when he first started he was he was training on a diet of hot dogs and ice cream and then once he started getting once he started getting a real professional. You'll you'll backers finance years. That's when they were like no more ice cream and thought that's the big. That's the big thing. It's a huge difference and expect you know on in originally you know. He came up to a booster recreation in so he was. You know so. He's training in a room with two hundred other boxers Where it's like you just trying to try to you. Know get his hands on a bag workout in but then once you just shut up a lamb you such a huge difference to be able to have your own gym and you're like trainers that have been doing it for forever So it's it's You know Y- that's that's really. That's that's what catapulted him from meal the amateurism to the Professional. You know course we go. Pro is when everything starts the strict make money and all that some by the way Joe Joe has called me and texted me that he's trying to log in right now so I don't I'll kick any moment. He will arrive hopefully otherwise I will call him on the phone and hold up which we've done before we remember doing so the the the golden glove really. It's it's quite quite the turning point for him. That's that's really neat. That the there's support for it and they've bringing back Michael Dino which award. I'm talking about that. You guys helped The Joe Louis helped bring Bourbon back because p Peter was talking about talking about the you tell them what I was talking about the other day the silver medal. Yeah the brutal or never the poem in the in the boxing golden glove competition itself. Peter Peter had the story. He was telling me about it. I I I do recall it. It's not It's not top of mine sheriff. We know about the Congressional Medal of Freedom Right which is a bronze medal that he was awarded posthumously which was the original which have regular because I have one of the earth. This is what the original paint had was. And there's about About sixty cases so maybe three hundred something bottles throughout Michigan. That had this all the everything else has a new one. Which was the square that has the champ is back. But that medal was awarded in Nineteen eighty-one possumus possibly can't say that too much permanent. Why NEW HAVE A story? I do have a quick story about something. Joe Kinda did lead to which I think an interesting thing that never gets talked about like never like like this is crazy how it kind of comes up in this regard. 'cause. I don't think I've ever even really talked about it anywhere else but You'll the Joe. Joe Louis had such an impact at that time that like everybody. Every kid wanted to become a boxer. Like didn't even matter. The colors black white didn't matter. Boxing was the biggest thing especially in Detroit like amateur. Boxing was everywhere. There was a writer that made a comment. That like you walked on the screen. And he's right and it was like you get kinda nervous because Ucla kids like practicing boxing with each other. You know. They're all play boxing everywhere. And so one of the big newspapers in in Detroit that time in addition to the to the free will the big newspaper in addition to the Detroit News Detroit. Free Press was the Detroit Times which is just. It's it's my favorite newspaper of All Time. In one of the things that they did was they were always cre- they were rather than just like covered the event they would actually create their own events so that they would have the only exclusive down to cover it and so one of the one of the things that they ended up creating was an amateur boxing tournament in Detroit called the diamond belt buckle tournament in Salt Lake in suicide every age category like every age. I forgot how young it started but there was a whole like all these age groups and then there was And then there was like you know heavyweight flyweight and all that go way down so it was sort of it was created is like a is a wider like amateur thing. That was it wasn't as serious as the as the gold gloves. Gold gloves were the signature event but the but the diamond belt walk was just. I just love the idea. It's almost like a precursor the WWe humanity winning. You know winning that tournament no matter what age you are but you gotta diamond belt. Buckle says Troy Times champion and you get to walk into school wearing the diamond belt buckle. I decided it was a really cool thing. You know that all. That's that's cool that's cool. That's if I may. I may give anything I would I would. I don't never seen one in person. I've always seen like newspaper photos of it. So if anybody like listening to this or anybody knows anybody that's got a Detroit Times. Diamond Belt Buckle Udal from grandfather. Something I would love to see one in person that's-that's Charles around man. He's got these stories. He knows crap that nobody knows about. I just love. I don't know where you find information on that other where you know straight out of the newspapers so question for question for everybody. What are some of the things? What is the most surprising or inspirational piece of history? That you learned about Joe Louis and soft while you're doing getting ready to put to launch the Bourbon or partnering with Joe Louis. Urban or learning about the history of some of the most surprising or inspirational stories that you learn about Joe Louis. There's too many will first of all. There's the there's the the story that you know He. There's there's a sad broke after the story. Which is the you know the tax bill the the money that the U s pressure went after him for it was he was very generous. He gave away a lot of money to charity to people to help people and to the point where you know you may not have had the record keeping as tight as you know the accountants would like it and that dog until the end of his days and so you know but yet he persevered right yet. He did whatever he had to do. Which included you know obviously some decisions like the Rocky Marciano fight which was ended up being a career. You know embarrassment you know to the fact that he sucked it up and he lived in Caesar's palace for over a decade and speaking of crappy. Grandpa that I'm Ta- I'm talking about.

You're there and you're part of it and it was very intimidated. I was very wide eyed and it was very exciting for me and when Wayne was there did everybody no.

"At first the chant from the audience was familiar to Eric. We want eazy easy over and over again. He loved it why wouldn't he it was validation for all the hard work and the risk took investing a quarter million of his hard earned street dollars Indians his record label and ultimately the success of his group. He worked out his own version of the American dream for himself but the adoring you're in chorus gave way to a different ship it was also a song title which showed that the crowd loved the music putting out but this one was less satisfying more jerry it reminded him something more menacing confrontational it reminded him of cops back and competence the ones to pull them over a couple of months back yanked him from his vintage vintage. W Bug the one with the freaks come out at night. Lettering airbrushed across the back is slammed his face she side down hard onto the hood of the car who then told them upright spun him around to face the press the barrel of a standard issue clock twenty two straight into Isa's temple. They wanted the drugs they knew he was a dealer. What was it in clean of his act taken his talents to the music industry so the LAPD would walk away empty-handed now without making point incompetent dadis local drug dealer or rapper? Whatever the fuck they own the night they own streets not him for he was humiliating is being honest? SCARIEST FAULK OCE was next to easy on stage us now going by the name Ice Cube. Here's the same chant as he but he had his own memory winding up his heart rate is crowd yell back a phrase he had written he flashed back to the cops outside of the studio as as a members of NWEA has -cluded themselves into record their groups masterpiece. An effort took only eight weeks and costly ten thousand dollars to me. Those cops mint meant business just like maybe they recognize something that they saw themselves and unwillingness to take shit at all which is why they braced on the sidewalk when he asked why they were questioning again they threw him to the pavement stepped on the back of his neck demanded to know why he was just hanging out on the corner do nothing and they weren't buying the truth. Truth Decay was taking a break from the hard work of making a record not until the band manager Jerry Heller a white man came outside to squash the beef even even then the cops refused to accept the queue was an actual musician. After all rap was music it was fat or whatever it was it would save ice cube from the rage roiling being inside of the doodle lifetime of similar of it's just like this Dr Drey hated the Chan- it annoyed he just wanted to make music but the chance something about the pointed anger of it so direct aim straight at the cops from back home the same cops who did next to nothing to protect stepbrother or to find his killer that one's let them bleed out and die in the streets of Compton trade and want the grief within him stirred and that's a chanted yellowed in mind neither Dempsey rent the two other group members they had their own baggage to sort through the chant to them what it did to the others force them to remember where they came from. How fucked up life on the streets of Konta Mus pure era violence deadly gang members deadly cops a violent vice that squeezed into submission the cop scare them more than the bloods and the crips though but at released the gang bangers? NWEA were celebrities and not to be fucked within reason there were NWEA comptons. Greatest Exports Dennis Johnson who at the time was busy helping the Boston Celtics gang entry into yet another eastern conference finals but I digress. NWEA was easy ease brainchild a supergroup that included all the men currently standing ending onstage next to e plus lyricist the Dea Sea there are now NWEA. They were a supergroup with attitude the idea of a posse this deep was easiest easies their first real album straight OUTTA COMPTON was raised sonic vision reality raps over heartbeats come to life an album for over sixty minutes and it was hard to ignores ignores fresh spray from an AK47. It's opening salvo. You are now but to witness the strength. The street knowledge quickly smacks you in the face and then Palm Mosey with a sledgehammer be that somehow also bruce while hugh easy and ran kickoff. I have diverse at diverse line straight out of context detailing life life spent dodging violent cops in the streets of their home hood. There's no mistaking. Were these dudes were from and that was an accident drain. E wanted to rip their hometown. Just like East Coast Rappers Rep. There's except Compton wasn't exactly the same as Hollis Queens. The Bronx Compton was a war zone sort of properly do justice. NWEA relied on their own experiences in the street reality that they faced on a daily basis to inform the lyrics that meant violence drugs crooked cops and backward misogynist Attitudes Toward Women Aka bitches and Hos with no sugar coating they spit it out all over beats that hit you hard right in peppered everything with humor they learn from the blue comedy records of Rudy Ray Moore Red Fox parents five dot two adolescent music fan nineteen eighty-eight it all added up to something as infectious if not more so than aerosmith guns N. roses or any other mainstream rock blanketing airways time the violence and profanity it depicted in the lyrics made it almost impossible for radio to get behind the album an MTV outright ban their first videos but it didn't matter the record was too. Oh good the lyrics to real through the power is strong distribution for easy record label reasons records even stronger word of mouth news of this new type of Wild Rob. A reality rap with the press is fast calling Gangsta rap spread quick not only through urban neighborhoods and schools but through lily white suburban nick since small towns all across America and of course the gangbangers linked to it was their world come to life on record but what made you. Ua so revolutionary is that they embrace the persona of the gangsters they word objectify the gang violence they saw neighborhoods they were personifying. They were the bad guys long before Tony Soprano or Walter White five kids from contemplated okay to root for the bad guys they were tagging the antagonists the LAPD over on the East Coast public enemy may have been bringing the noise by commenting on social injustices but NWEA was cutting through the noise by playing the villain wearing the black hat shooting down cops wraps dealing wait in their wraps beating down rivals' wraps first-person fucking of the system had had enough with the drive bys census murders enough with the police harassment enough at the lack of opportunity but they didn't play the victim of car took a truly defied stance redefined the theater award fought back from music and made their way through their own fucked up reality by any it's necessary a motto coined by Malcolm X. Stolen by Darryl Gates and stolen backed by Nwea American teenagers eat it up they sold millions means of copies of straight OUTTA. Compton and EAZY was laughing to himself the absurdity of it all but not everybody thought it was funny the LAPD were pissed as police brethren throughout the country tonight here in Detroit at the Joe Louis Arena in front of upwards of twenty thousand people all seem to be coming to a head well eazy e Ice Cube Dr Dre Yellow and MC ran sat on stage leading the Channel Fuck the police rain down on them in front of twenty thousand thousand strong. They could feel the tension they could see it in the eyes of the cops and the crowd there are sensitively to protect the band though it felt like they were. They're more to intimidate into a press press. NWEA was worn before the show not to play their song fuck the police song and sparked a nationwide debate over NWEA's claims of police brutality polity and of what life was really like the streets they grew up on. We're Gangsta rappers really ripping the reality of their surroundings or just cashing in on the profanity violence police forces around the country to the song and its direct title as an affront many of them refusing to provide security for the group while they were on tour the lyrics for two controversial traversable fuck the police come straight from the Undergrad young got it back because umbrella and not the other color so police think the have the authority authority to kill a minority the lyrics go on the detail ice cubes first person account of crooked. LAPD justified beating on and quote unquote slaughter of the police release the lyrics were alive wire and on this night in particular the tension in the room and it feels like the song the group decided to play it might incite a riot the crowd would not stop channing title over and over fuck the police fuck the police buck the police fuck the police it was deafening and inspiring it was tied for the group to kick into one of their other songs. Gangsta Gangsta easy was ready. Queue was hoping for something more and dre okay was milling about hovering over his tables on stage yellow as always was due to fully awaiting direction from drain ran was wondering what the fuck was with the delay the crowd kept chanting cobs now nervously making their way through the audience to the front of the stage some of them uniform most of them undercover there on the scene in the crowd to prevent whatever the fuck was about to happen from happening draze is cut cubes across the stage he motioned him closer and when he got into earshot DRI asks you ready Cube said nothing just gave him an approving scowl on a defiant nod shouted come in on the two then fuck the police. This crowd loss itself screaming everywhere back in accused face cops looked visibly scared. They were outnumbered by the tens of thousands inside the song was killing and worth every ounce of bullshit abroad because it was real you can tell from the response it was undeniable. Kids loved it because it tapped tapped into something totally authentic totally unique. It was a look into an American reality that was under reported in the media. It was a crisis this reality of gangs and abusive cops hops a cycle of violence made it near impossible to find your way through to the American dream and it was pissed the fuck off just like nearly everyone in the audience which is why the the crowd began to write the sound of gunshots or what was later learn to be firecrackers set the riot off yellow. Her first onstage quickly fled fuck this pseudo protest songs with the rest of the group followed soup trying to escape backstage while the crowd towards shit up in the house but the members of n w were quickly corralled by the local cops and hauled him for inciting Ryan but in the end it all worked out the Detroit cops. Were not like the cops back home. There are more interested in autographs for the kids and they were pressing charges. It seemed like they had arrested them just to prove they could and the group was quickly. Let go cube even enjoy the cops. Maybe we can produce a soft for you. Guys Call Fuck. NWEA.

Smith Kline shown and I mean that proved prescient granted none of us predicted that Michigan was gonna take us you know a swan dive into mediocrity for a day you know nearly a decade there but but none the less it's he has been a godsend for the rivalry itself in the sense of Hey the Michigan state rivalry at night because it's fun again because I wouldn't call it fun I mean the no it's not fun it's it's much darker than fun it's it's intense and now that's not the word it's I mean it is that it was nasty yeah it's I mean it's become it's not always I would say you could always argue that it was the nastiest of the rivalries no no you don't think I always do look maybe it's because of the man that I did that lead us lead me on to that feel how how I had to we respect will end this is this is Sam Webb's hate for me we respect wherever we play okay when you walk on that field they work just as hard as you to play against you you give them that respect but you go out and do what you're supposed to do because they're not playing for me their plan for him over there you're here because I brought you here so you go play because I know what you can do that case closed in the deal I knew and are we winning this game you know what but it's not there yeah I mean look you saw me with Lorenzo white how we talk to one and not that we had to tackle one another anything like that but this is gotten nasty but it wasn't what would you say wind of the of the two two of those two rivals when you would play Michigan state or Ohio state who is the dirty your team when you would plan Michigan state which one fan base or or or team team on the field I'm not talking about because again just dirty put from what I understand you're gonna get sick you go get some now you go get some extra shot to Michigan state Michigan state was that type the with the jazz to your it was the nasty your rival that type of team yes the dynamics of again Michigan being a little bit higher right to pull at the time them feeling on a number of things but it's nastier what I mean by now it's not just that it's not just the teens it's it's in the fan base and now they're not afraid to I mean Michigan state fairs they've they've won their whatever you want to say they want and they're good they they will come in your face and that's why I think the freaking out now they don't know what to do now that they see the tides are turning this is our describe over over radio what I'm going to try I save the medium that was for someone posted from the I actually it's just texted but it's a someone posted the others that mean from the was a called see choppers or whatever it is that that way of you know the the dad and then the and then the sun you know dad like pointing the sounds like you know arguing back to dad's full on yelling than the sun's ducking from a chair than the dads you know pointing and you whatever you know you don't mean I mean I'm talking about so that same meme it starts off with the data's Michigan fans always live in the past the sun will be to twenty one seventy east Lansing last year also do ninety four yards the dad we had injuries besides we are eight and three against you since two thousand eight the sun getting the chair thrown at a but we're thirty three and seventeen against MSU since nineteen seventy and seventy thirty six and five overall and then the dad a response that's not the narrow and specific in the past that matter at eight twenty because that's that's I think part of it like you when you say the fan bases to like it is kind of accurate at Michigan state fans are so much more emboldened now than they were you know from when I was in school and everything like that like I never had you know even like bite my additional freshman year ninety nine Michigan state was the game that Michigan lost their you know and I have the you know that I had no friends that came later game I don't know I didn't watch it honestly I wasn't that's a I wasn't that into football back in back when I first came here I'm glad return your love baby okay yeah I I I could hear the games the home games from my dorm but and I watched some of them on TV but not much and I can't no recollection I didn't watch that game but and what all my friends that were at an issue and a lot of room and it was just like you know just member give them a call afterwards me like congradulations will get you next year they're like all things with school over glad that we want to you know was like it was that was it you know wasn't this now it's like I go to my high school reunion and that's the main it was actually fine but I've gone like five years ago when I was a writer and I remember going to my high school reunion and this is in the middle of Michigan losing you know twenty fourteen uhhuh I walk in and a bunch of my for those same friends Michigan state alarms were it was the day when you have state game alas there all up in my face being like how did you like that loss from earlier yeah right it's like whoa I just came here to catch up I didn't come here to talk trash about and they didn't and then they do the thing where they vicariously live through highest even then even though they're beating Michigan like you're gonna get your you know what checks tomorrow and it's like okay yeah I know I I've watched to see I was in the stands at Maryland you know all of our mission was to Maryland six days ago I am aware of what's coming angle but but yeah it is nastier like now in twenty sixteen they kind of almost the gates my point the one about to say but I remember twenty sixteen taking a picture of moderate London and John corn on the field they were high school teammates but the difference in the game I photographed but on the field every year twenty fifteen sixteen seventeen and eight now eighteen that's the only time that I've seen Michigan any Michigan and Michigan state players posing for pictures together otherwise I mean it's that post game it it there's no good blood what else Michigan Ohio state it is different that now that's a little different they can only do this at the big house because the highlighted a fan fan's strike the feel they want to get they wanna get sprayed with all of that you know pepper spray and everything like that yeah no I think the Ohio state police enable that a little bit too much I mean the last year was better because last year they there were a lot of bike cops out there that well way some people left early to some people left early on but the year but the two years before it when it was bad yeah but after the game like I've talked about this on the show in twenty fifteen like I watch does he kill Elliott be like wheres Jay you and like at put tears in my eyes a little bit seeing that type of stuff I know they're from the same region but he was going around J. Hugh yeah I wanted to hug Jay you I got a picture of that and I see that all every every time two years ago you know JT Barrett I had a picture of JT Barrett not people Jones giving each other a hug and I know that's not what Michigan beyond another lot of Michigan fans probably listen and this being like I don't want Michigan players to be to be how going on with the Ohio state you know what it's a little bit different now because in the world of recruiting and everything like these guys all know each other really well like they've all been in the same camp they've all you know but at the old you know the the all American whatever all American game they've come up like you through the ranks together so yeah they the teams hate each other but these players know each other really well and everything and you see these like you know game a game I have I took pictures of every Thomas in cage a hammer after the Penn state game you know like I remember covering caging either way is at Saint Mary's it also like that's cool when.

It was it was motto Amano and Ted played that way, he was a fighter. He was. He was a leader though. Who's a leader in in forming the players union, which deeply-rooted his boss at the time. You have of the Red Wings Jack Adams who back in the day was given credit for being the greatest general manager, the Red Wings have ever had Jimmy Deva Llano, and Kevin Harlan might have changed that some. Although right now the wings in you know, out of the playoffs for the third straight year can Holland's now taking heat from a lot of fans, and you've even got the calls of lose for who's Paul. He was the local product is considered the best player available in the draft a future star. But at any rate getting back to Ted we were at the Red Wings opener in two thousand sixteen and like we do just about every year now. Well every year. Go down, and we broadcast from now Little Caesars arena earlier. It was Joe Louis arena. The day of the Red Wings. Her Paul does show there. We do our show there and in twenty sixteen three years ago at the opener, we talked with Ted Lindsay about some some hockey stuff. And and I just wanna play that right now. Do you still miss playing? I mean, even now these many years later, do you still miss playing the game a hockey I live a little bit? Maybe in the past. I see things that happen in my career by the management. What this club that? I was with at the time. And the great players we add we should have won a number more Stanley Cup. Matter of fact, the five the Montreal what role that was after we wanted to nineteen fifty five. I know all these days because it's still in my head. But Jack Adams and back in those days. You already had one goaltender defenseman. Three lying your backup. Goalie was your trainer, right? Yeah. Right. Lefty wilson. Right. So he traded nine players away from our championship team. And we check in that to Glenn playing junior in Windsor. Only had maybe two years down the road. Bob gold would have to retire. So we needed to get another good defense when he traded nine players away from our team that's half the team in nine guys as people. You gotta have winters. So who is a better GM that was Kenny Hollander, Jack Adams Adams has always revered around here. No, no. When I came here and forty four. The veterans said that he was a bad manager. Of course, I'm innocent young and innocent. He's been here for since nineteen twenty six or twenty five. He must be good or he wouldn't be here. Well, I found out later took many years, but I find whenever of course, when I got involved with the players association. And glenn. Why he got traded to because Adams told him not to talk to me. And he told Mr Adams. Mr adams. He's never done anything to me. If I wanted to talk to Dr. None of cars down the road. He. Confrontation, the miss the Vezina trophy by. One goal or goals. And so the next year he's negotiating contracts and jank Adams gave a five hundred dollar as and when he's leaving his office is there's no sunny, he said. Don't tell anybody about this is we'll keep it between ourselves and Glenn had a great win. He said, don't worry, Mr Adams. I'm ashamed of to. That's too funny. So is Ken Holland. Then the SEM in Red Wings history. I would say so. The great Ted Lindsay, and that's high praise for for Kenny Holland, especially the Jimmy devil. Lana wasn't too bad either. Right. So at any rate, the great Ted Lindsay who passed away last night at the age of ninety three in hospice care. We get a lot more to come here on the Frank Beckmann show. We're going to talk to an artist and artiste coming up in our next segment. You just stay right. Where you are.

We have enough time for this thing. Stand up comedian. Yup. Entrepreneurs since he's shirts social media director for what brands mental heads and mentos do they ever since. I did some work for buffalo trace Wisconsin last year. Okay. Really? All right. Did I ever send you like the occasional extra tube mentos because? Yeah. A fan of the mentos member. Kamara couldn't play at Tennessee. Correct. Continue airhead the okay. So let's see there's that. And then professional troll is that the bottom I used to enjoy the troll back in back in the wrestling days when you're a wrestling fan. Not as much as I used to be. But in college. Yeah. In college, we were really into it. The stone cold in W O stone called the rock those days aim here, and we would pre internet. We would go to events and we would. We would share for the wrestlers that everybody else hate it. And we would make signs that were meant to upset. Whatever city we were in because we would travel and so that's why I feel like. This isn't going to the butthurt isn't going to stop because I can speak from experience. There's there's something fun about stirring, the pot. Yeah. I think you're onto that on Facebook. We were in we were in Detroit watching king of the ring, and we had sign that said support foreign automakers. In detroit. Oh my God. How did you get out alive? Well, we we got escorted out. Really? Yeah. You know in a crowd chance a whole like a referee or an opposing player hottest was at you guys. This was my fridge. Dave. Oh, yeah. He was conducting them like he was the music director of a chorus and they were between matches because they had him. They knew who we were because all of our signs hockey is fake. Long live rocky Marciano because we are at Joe Louis arena. And we got we got really into upsetting people. And even if even if it was funny, it would still upset people. We were in Louisville. This is maybe my favorite sign. We had a sign that said eastern makes a better. Which while still makes me laugh to this day? But see here's the best part. Z to upset people sluggers are made over in Indiana or they were at the time. So that's even better. But what's wrong with that? I mean that can you imagine some of that today? But think about this. What's so funny is at the same time. There are wrestlers that come out with a microphone in their entire job is to inflame the local because they walk. I mean, this has been going on since the the old Dave Brown, Lance Russell days when they would come out and just slam the city or Memphis it happened. It happened at the Royal rumble in Arizona two weeks ago. The first guy that was out there for the rumble was talking to everybody. And he says someone should take a picture and send it to the Diamondbacks. So they can see what this place looks like when it's full. Awesome. That's great. The other night. I was after the Super Bowl. This is something about I don't even know why bother talking to you. This town isn't even important enough to have a football team. I mean, it's just that kind of stuff, and I love that. But people cheer that on and and love that that face versus villain guy. I think it's putting wrestling. I think that's more. I mean, wouldn't you even though they they asked Gordon you out and chanted a whole they probably enjoyed that. That's the thing is no real to some people that it genuinely upsets them. Now. Do you think that what you did because you weren't a wrestler, and they expect that from them and their plan along in their in on that joke? They get they think that's okay. But because you did it as a fan different different mosaic take tanking personally part. Right. Where we started. Yeah. Bow. There's always gonna be that. It's still real to me guy. Oh, yeah. And and people there with their kids who are cheering for the wrestlers that they're supposed to be cheering for daddy. Why is this guy cheering for the bad guy? You know now he's got. Either explained it has like he's a jerk or because he's got a really good sense of humor. Well, I would tell you this. And you talk about that being pre internet. I would go to matches at Louisville gardens very certain the same ones came here to Cincinnati gardens before TV really was that big. And they did they were all house matches. None of a more televised and there'd be people in their seventies. And eighties and the first couple rose all the way around the ring with their canes losing their minds completely out of their minds buying in one hundred percent and the wrestlers would come out and spit on them and throw throw drinks at each other. And they cuss them out. Stupid old man. It was the greatest I always call it. The the Broadway series for rednecks because it was the greatest. The theater for the dumb, including myself. My gosh, it was probably like a well known at WWF or something like, oh, no. This was this was Jerry Lawler when he was still wrestling and Bill Dundee and those old guys gamble. You. Probably. Remember peels palace? Wrestling at peels how those people out boxing wrassling all kinds of stuff, but they bought in hook line, and sinker. It was so great and those guys had to just be laughing their asses off, but the back but to tie a bow on it. That's what I think. That's why I think there's never this isn't ever going to stop is that it's it's too much fun to upset people. Yeah. Easy. And now, it's too easy. It doesn't even have to be clever. It just has to be available. But you know, what it's not that sort of upsetting people. It's the overriding serious nature that people take every THEO. And it goes back to what we started the program with our people can't take a joke. Yeah. They can't. They can't just say, okay. Well, I want to invent a product called skin thickener. I do and I want to market it out just to thicken your skin because I think we've become a nation full of jellyfish. We really have you can almost see our veins we become so thin skinned. But that is perfect bow on Josh view. You nailed it. We're gonna talk to our last call right now or coming up here in a couple of minutes, George Vogel from channel five boss.

"Talk at Yahoo dot com. Let's go to the emails from Bobby and yet Salani, which would you prefer the wings making the playoffs are a top five. Pretty easy. It gets everybody. Judging where everybody is sending me or talk talk to me about or whatnot. I mean, everybody wants a top five pick. I mean, obviously this team even. They wouldn't do anything in the Stanley Cup playoffs this year too far away. So I think anybody would prefer. Agrees with me. I'd like to see him make the plants you never know. What can happen? This league is not pulling lot of telling the talented teams you have. Now, you know, Toronto's a very they're not gonna be trial. But travels got some problems. I mean, they're not gonna no no they lose a seven game series to Tampa in about two and a half games. I can't. I mean this team is right. And this team is so far away. The oh, I don't think it's far away. But I think that there's no way that they can win a Cup at all. But in two or three years, I think this could be something at the development of those draft picks come on and some of the younger players come up in the have come up and done. Well this year some. It's tough to get in. I once you get into this little cycle. So this'll be the third straight season. They missed the playoffs. It's tough to get back into the into that tournament. It really is. I mean, you see teams like Carolina and Edmonton, it'd been couvert near Zona buffalo looks like they finally might make it the now that I think they're out of the playoff picture again by tell you once you missed the tournament. It's tough to get back in there. I don't think that though nothing Toronto's going to be in trouble in a couple of years. They've got contracts that they're going to have to trade. Some guys are this summer. I think they're in trouble. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know this whole salary. Can't be wonder sometimes I like it. I like they should be. There should be some sort of provision where you can keep your own players. I like to care Dogana. Did it makes it it's a very competitive league like the turnover. I mean, you've got players moving. No, I don't like to say that. I don't like happening in baseball a little bit. You're talking about somebody the other day Ryan as far as baseball. They really have a there's a lot of problems with baseball. They need to fix first off. There's about seven or eight teams. And then it's everybody else. Nobody past the cubs. The Red Sox a Yankees Astros dodgers after that. Nobody else has a prayer of getting into it. That's what you gotta do. They gotta get a hard cap in baseball and get rid of this luxury tax and bowl like that. Careful as we'll never go player. The boys will never go for that. You'll never go for that. Oh, I don't know. So that's gonna be an issue myself. I could care less if they go for and I think the players make too much money day, not the money per guaranteed contracts for long term. I think that's that's why very few players, and they signed long term contracts live up to the contract very few. And then the games are too long. Yeah. You're going. I mean, those games are going what three and a half hours. We're not quite that bad on an average. But yeah. Down a couple minutes last couple of years, but not enough to make that much. Offense to I mean, you got the specialists and now in any shifts scenario. Well, what was it? What was the stand? I read the other day. There's there's more strikeouts than hits this year. That's right. That's I mean, that's because there's no approach will strike strikes. So little I look I learned boy there's a lot of problems they have to fix over there. You got it right and more strikeouts. Baseball because nobody has an approach with two strikes are very few. Do you gotta put the ball? Glenn? The bullpen is coming in throwing ninety nine miles an hour. I don't buy that. I think that the guns are juiced. I think the guns are used. I don't think they're throwing as hard as they say they're about four or five miles less. They got these scouts. Tell me. We get these fast guns to joke. A lot of them. Don't even use them anymore. It's a joke 'cause you really can't tell the guys throw ninety nine the really throwing ninety three ninety four. It's gonna be a rough rough year round here. I mean, nobody here. Yes, sir. Exist team's going to be. How do you want a phrase? I mean, everybody thinks it's going to be over a hundred losses. Sixty five to seventy. I think less than one hundred. I think they lose ninety two games proactive be lose Monette. I dunno. I mean. Pitching staffs. A disaster. The bullpen. Comey runs. Are they going to score? I mean, goodness gracious. Burgess wanna play they, but they can't do anything Mike Illitch in some ways did a phenomenal job here. In other words. He's ruined. This team. Just put I mean. Well, how the anybody's unbelievable ten year run? Yeah. Yeah. Bad. But yeah, I mean, the after effects of it it's gonna be it's gonna be pretty difficult right now. Did you think bear wants to play here? I think he does do you talk to the president of Florida's had give me back to Florida. I want I want back in Florida, but they can't afford about that that was never proven. Align. The vice president team admitted not the ex vice president I should say the team in the pistons wire the pistons where they are right now. I'll tell you this there is absolutely zero interest in that riots right around here. Well, here's here's why they went out and got Blake Griffin. And that was disaster. All you see is forty four points and he had a great game the other night, but he plays. No defense. They keep the ball too long. They run out the twenty four second clock. If he spent one tenth of what he does on offense on defense. This team would be better off their leave. Nobody gets up more paints points in the paint Drummond into some block shots and a great rebound. Can't treat Germany got. Nobody can rebound Griffin. Can't rebound. He's a little below average rebounded for guy his size, and he doesn't block shots and he doesn't wanna play defense. He stands middle of the side. Put your hands in the air, then put into the damn side. Now, why is it the switch to Little Caesars been such a terrible disappointment. It seems like really been better off at the palace. You. No, I don't think so. I like Joe Louis arena myself gets a little cold of the press box. I will say that. I don't have to tell you that you're up there all the time. Games ago too. I go to almost half the piston games some injured. Of course, I'm I'm out for a little bit. I almost half the game about half the games. I go to the remedies together a little bit more. But the crowds of a Little Caesars for the piston games. Rob aren't they? Redwings route drawing the pistons pretty good margin. And that is why I'm asking you round mean why have the has switched? I mean, why had the pistons? Okay. I'll give you the example people showing up in games a Little Caesars. I thought it'd be a lot better than it has. We gotta take some calls here in a moment. But I'm gonna tell you why when they moved down from. From auburn. Hills. I talked to us every fan I talked to they're not going down there. Raising the price dumb almost not quite doubling the price of clothes, and they don't want to drive, and they don't want to pay those high ticket prices for bad ballclub. And that's what they got. That's what's happening. What's happening? And that's that's a sad to think I've got more fancier in downriver in western Wayne and even in the city. There has been. I mean, it just hasn't camping. And you're right, nobody from Oakland County or northern Oakland County, and what about the ticket prices. And what about the parking prices thirty forty dollars fifty dollars apart? Yeah. That's rough. That's rough. Hey, let's take some calls. We got behind a break. But let's take some calls. Let's start off with Tim and Plymouth, you're on sports talk with Ted coffin. Hello, Ron Amtrak. I think my question is perfect. The conversation. Jeff had which of the major sports did you see X absolutely going bankrupt. I won't go to all right wings game for forty dollars Turkey. Sixty dollars or eighty dollar hundred dollar check that it's just not worth it, not entertain. I don't care what anyone says. And I like us that you guys actually a willing to talk about it. NFL stadium. NHL stadiums. Fall, but it's just not entertainment and for regular family. This isn't the Olympia. This isn't Joe Louis arena. It used to be a fun. I could enjoy watching these young players was an less expensive experience. And it's it's just not entertainment, and I'd like to get your comment and all that I agree with you on that. I enjoy the way too high way too high about it somebody the other day. He went on stubhub or somewhere to get the to get those four tickets for his family of four. I mean, they went on and got a deal, but it was still like about one hundred hundred and twenty five and I took it. So you're still five hundred dollars for about the tiger. So you're getting you're getting tickets for about ten bucks on stuff up. None of the Tigers. And you're getting for free and get a seat even though it's not a good seat, especially the Iran and Pepperdine easy going. Could you actually see a major sports we went bankrupt. Now, part of the reason is he my Money Train. Get some flow. Tim it really does. I don't think we'll ever see that. I think the one the the the sport that we could see some changes. Eventually, it's college athletics. I really think especially college basketball is more and more kids, go straight to the NBA, hop kids and bypass college one out. Yeah. I mean, there won't even be the one. And now, they're not gonna do the one. They just go straight to the NBA. I think that product might get devalued down the line, and may really could have trouble. But college football. I mean, that's the machine. Unless something changes, and you start, you know, start having to pay the players. I mean, college football that'd be disastrous because you play the players in all sports in one. You can't do you can't do that. No. I don't know. How you you? Couldn't say. The TV money just keeps. Yeah. One last issue. You see the? Head injury ever coming to light and football and hockey where that will ever be addressed by themselves. Speaking dressed, but not as a higher level like it. Should you got to concussions today and before years ago? Ted you follow hockey in bed sports years ago? It was a headache. That's all it was right? Not a concussion now. We know more about it, thankfully, we know more and more about him. It's pretty dangerous for me. I'm glad they raised more attention focused on it. You're right. I mean, I don't think anybody knew about it way back in the day. And you know, you read some of these stories, especially in the NFL, it's tragic. What's happened to a lot of those retirees that those leaks? But I think we know more about it. Now, it really is being addressed. I think more sure a little bit more could be done. But I really do think. Everybody kinda I paying attention to it and cognizant of it. And I have no issues right now as far as I think all the leagues are doing a decent enough job in terms of that Tim. Thank you very much for the call. Appreciate that. Thanks. You're welcome. Let's go. Let's take a quick break and take more.
