"The law was on the books and they needed to find a way to assert a the constitutional right to. Birth control in nineteen, sixty, five and griswold versus Connecticut. They essentially decided that case under the umbrella of privacy. So privacy is not explicitly stated in the Constitution. But. They use the ninth amendment and the Fourteenth Amendment to sort of cobbled together all of these rights and say, okay, this is a private decision between. A husband and wife to use birth control and the government cannot infringe on that decision cannot the government can't. Walk into people's bedrooms and decide what they do. So that's how they decided birth control. Then in seventy two, they finally made it legal for single women, and then when they were deciding Roe v Wade, they decided the right to choice also under the right to privacy saying it was a private decision between a doctor and his patients So essentially, they sort of decided Roe v Wade in part by basing it on a doctors right doctors right to privacy in a doctor's right to do what they believe is right. So. This unfortunately, I has been a problem for reproductive freedom because it bases are right. To control their own bodies to have bodily autonomy on this right to privacy that's actually quite vague and confusing ruth. Bader Ginsburg argued that if if the right to reproductive freedom could have been based in equal protection under the law. With the idea that you can't possibly be equal in this country as a woman if you don't have bodily autonomy if you don't have the right to decide what to do with your own body, the right to decide whether to have children or not if childbearing is obligatory. Then, you can't possibly be equal in this country I didn't know this until apply but the majority decision in griswold were which upheld. The right of married couples to use contraception was written by Justice William. Douglas. Who I found this out from your play at the time was having an affair with a college student. So what does that say to you that you know the decision was written by? All why men and that the majority opinion writer was having an affair. I I don't know whether they were using contraception or not but women were in the position until recently were decisions about. Their lives and bodies in power were being decided exclusively on Supreme Court level by men. Yes. it says to me First of all, there is a level of hypocrisy in our laws and on the Supreme Court I don't know if William O. Douglas and his girlfriend were using contraception or not. But my guess is they were and actually if you listen to the whole griswald recording, there's the sense that that all the men. The male justices. At birth control is something that. That people use. and it was legal in most states it was it was absolutely legal in most states, but the fact that they found it so difficult to figure out how to like how to affirm that it was constitutionally protected in spite of this in spite of the fact that like they all knew that. People use birth control, the fact that they couldn't even in griswold versus. Connecticut. Constitutionally Affirm the constitutional protection for single women to use. It is absurd given that it's something that everyone was using. It's so clear especially when you listen to the justices and if you listen to griswold versus Connecticut there clearly. So uncomfortable talking about this, the throats all the time it's like very torturous for them Heidi shreck speaking with Terry Gross last year A. Filmed version of her Broadway play. What the Constitution means to me begins streaming on. Amazon prime today we'll.

"Right, that your great great grandparents, the women you great grandmothers were considered quote good immigrants who are considered the bad immigrants at the time. So. So my great great grandparents and great grandparents Especially, the women were considered good immigrants because they just needed women to populate this area They were also white which at that. Know was considered quote unquote Good. Immigrant at the time that quote unquote bad immigrant was considered to be an immigrant from China. So there was there's a huge history of. Violent discrimination against Chinese immigrants in this country starting with in eighteen eighty two, the government passed the Chinese exclusion act which made it illegal for immigrants to come from China they decided at that time. That Chinese. Immigrants were dangerous that they were stealing jobs from. quote unquote Americans, and so they pass this law that was not overturned until nineteen forty three when China became our ally in World War Two And not only did they pass this horrible law but there was. A. There was so much violence actually towards Chinese immigrants especially in Washington state where I'm from there are stories of incredible violence against those immigrants since president trump has such strong. Anti immigrant. Rhetoric and attitudes towards. Certain. Groups of people. Like. Mexicans Muslims. I'm wondering what you've been studying this. As an adult as a teenager, what does the Constitution have to say about? Who Becomes citizen and what what is it silent about? The constitution doesn't have much to say about who becomes a citizen so the fourteenth amendment. Says that any person born on US soil and subject to the jurisdiction thereof is a citizen of the United States and the state in which they reside So it does it is very clear on birthright citizenship excuse me although it also has this clause. And subject to the jurisdiction there of. Is what the government used to exclude indigenous peoples from becoming citizens when the fourteenth amendment was passed. So dots a little bit confusing, but most legal scholars have. Come down on this side of birthright citizenship that that is a constitutional right? which as we know was questioned by the trump administration last year most people agree that there's no question about that. Birthright citizenship is our right. Beyond that, it doesn't give. Any guidance about immigration about how many people should be allowed to immigrate about where those people might be from. There's no language about that. The one thing I did learn while making this is that the Fourteenth Amendment does guarantee that immigrants be given all the due process rights that citizens have. So it uses the word person rather than citizen when it talks about due process, which is the right to a fair trial, which is the right not to be imprisoned without a fair trial the right not to have anything. Seized from you. So there are quite a few protections for immigrants in the Fourteenth Amendment that I question. I questioned right now whether those are being upheld. I think a lot of people have no idea. That people who aren't citizens. Would still have those rights. I don't think. So either and you know there's also in the I believe it was the. Might be getting this wrong. The Supreme Court also upheld the. Right of children of undocumented immigrants to attend public school, that's also a case that was decided so. Immigrants have actually quite a few rights under our constitution if they are undocumented and I think it's an important time to remember that and and fight for that..

They're beautiful, glowing color pictures of this person, usually behind a flag or outstanding on some beach overlooking the ocean or whatever it may be. And the opposition. The opposing candidate always has this black and white picture, and they just look about as ugly as they could look, might have noticed that I don't know it was on my TV last night. I'm not sure if was on yours, but it's if you haven't heard. We're three weeks out from an election That's today. Good God. Let's all pray for November, the fourth except, of course, the local radio and television stations that are making boo coo dollars from political revenue. Good morning, Scott Sloan off again this day. I'm can brew great to have you with us. You know, when someone passes when someone leaves this earth, Unfortunately, they're remembered for their accomplishments. And not necessarily remembered for the kind of people they are. If they are the obit, the obituary has it buried 789 paragraphs down who this person was what their family was. What he or she did to help make the Earth a better place before they left. And it's that way in sports, too. I I read the stories about Joe Morgan. Today, particularly the national stories about Joe Morgan. And they list is his myriad baseball accomplishments. And if you look at his career, it's stellar. I mean, someone called yesterday who was a member of Sabre? The the the It's. It's Bill Bill James, his group saver petitions. They They gather and they talk about baseball stats and negative arguments as to who was greater than this and who was better at this and all this and and and and and try to support it. From a statistical standpoint, his point was That Not only was Joe Morgan the best second basement of all time that you could make statistically a case that he was the best baseball player of all time, and I really didn't want to get into that argument with the guy or that that conversation because I thought it was unfair to cajole Joe Morgan, who had just who had just passed in the last 24 hours. And and secondly, it really doesn't matter because it doesn't get to the heart of what he was and what he meant both on and off the field. The statistics are there for anybody that wants to take the time to look them up. There are very few people that actually saw Joe Morgan in all lights, both on the field and off the field, someone who actually covered this team when it was at its zenith back in the mid seventies. And that someone is standing by right now on and ready to talk to us on 700 wlw about the great Joe Morgan. He's a good friend of mine. A good friend of our show and a baseball hall of Fame or himself. He is the now seemingly mythical. How McCoy Now of how McCoy dot com How How are you on this glorious Tuesday? I am doing wonderfully. Well, my friend. And how are you? I'm well anytime. Somebody that was in my my childhood or early adulthood or when Or before fandom gave way to business. It just really it strikes at the core of who we are, because it makes us reflect on our own mortality. Joe Morgan probably did not think he was going to die at age 77, but he did. And I just I just felt really empty yesterday because I'm never going to see him again. Never got to hear him. Talk about baseball again. Learn Maurin baseball in a one minute conversation with him that I that I did with anyone else. He was much more, though, than his stance. Was he not Oh, absolutely. And that's exactly what I tried to point out in my column that I wrote for today's paper that baseball players are always men, measured by statistics and not by the man who they are. And when you talk about Jill Morgan, you it it perfectly on the head. He was more than a bunch of numbers filed together. He was a great great man and You learn more talking to him? You said in one minute. Then you learned watching 14 baseball games. He was just probably the most intelligent baseball player that I ever covered. And just a great great guy when he was traded here when that trade went down. It was not a popular trade. I mean, it really was not a popular traded all in this town with a fan based Tommy Helms and Li Mei. We're leaving. And here comes Joe Morgan, who had who had resume at that point, But who was he? This was not something that took this town by storm. No, That was a no outcry, actually, because we may was beloved Tommy Helms was a local kid to Ah, uh, had done well for the Reds, and they wondered it was like when the retired Sparky Anderson, and that was part to you. It was hell. Who is this little 5 ft. Seven guys going to come in and and play second base for the Reds. His numbers were not that great for for the Houston Astros, and the branches did not. Think it was a very good trade, and it turned out to be one of the all time great trades that was a brash bunch. He and Rose bench. Perez, obviously, to a lesser degree, But that was that was a brash bunch. They were good, and they knew they were good. Your relationship with Joe As a writer, which can at times be contentious. Absolutely that egos in that clubhouse or massive NGO at one of the biggest ones, and he backed it up. That's the thing you know a cry foot. 70 probably wouldn't be scouted by a junior college team these days. But no, He was just a tremendous player and we got along very well. He was always a great guy to interview you went over to the corner and Riverfront Stadium and Jo and Pete Rose. Lockard side by side and they just talk baseball incessantly, and you could just stand there and listen to him. But in 1979, it was pretty obvious that Joe is going to be leaving the Reds through free agency and I wrote a column saying it was time for Joe to go nuts because he was not a productive player, not because he was at the end of the line, but the big Red machine was breaking up. And they were going in a different direction. They were going to start to rebuild. And so that's what I wrote. And the next day I walked into the clubhouse and He stuck his finger in my face and said, Don't ever try to talk to me again. Well, 35 years we did not talk way actually played when he came back and was a broadcaster for the Reds. We actually played a couple of doubles tennis matches and he was on the other team already didn't speak were on the elevator together by ourselves. We're both stood Standing staring at the door, never spoke. This went on for 35 years and about three or four years ago on a Sunday morning, it was me and Joe Morgan in the clubhouse and he was dressing in his uniform when she Like to do and go out and watch batting practice, and I heard this voice said how they how I looked around and Joe's the only one in the clubhouse. I can't be M that he walked or to me. Plucked out his hand. And shook my hand and I want to apologize. That was a terrible thing that I did was very juvenile, and I just want to apologise and I apologised back and said with You know we were both there, given our acted like a bunch of a couple of Children, and we had a good laugh about it, and I'm really really glad that That that happened. I would have been felt terrible that so he left us or he did. And our relationship ended that way. So you know, I always admired him and I told him When he apologized, even though we didn't speak, I always respected the man that he was the player that he was, and I was so happy that we patched it up. If you look at what he did when he was here with his with his numbers, his career I I want to say it's an inordinate number. It's almost like 93 94% of the time that he was in the lineup. Hey, batted leadoff and that's that's that's That's an incredible statistic. When you think that the first guy up is important, really, only the first time he's up But it really sets the tone for what the rest of the lineup will do when I hearken back to game one of the world's Siri's in 1976 Doyle Alexander on the mound for the Yankees. Two out Morgan homers and they go on to thrash the Yankees statement at bat. There had to be something special about the way And this is more for the under 50 crowd who probably did not get to see him play at all. There had to be something special about the way he approached that bats. Yeah, there's no doubt about it. I mean, the guy was practically impossible to strike out..

"By the Holy Grail. Banks Budweiser and you on the reds radio network. Looking back into the reds hot stove league presented by the Holy Grail Banks Budweiser and you d after at Taller fame and museum presented by Dinsmore will reopen the museum members on Saturday June thirteenth. That is this Saturday into the public on Saturday June twentieth visit Reds Museum Dot Org to plan your next visit we're visiting with Hall. Of famer Joe Morgan and boy it is a treat to have you on. Joe. Thanks so much for for sticking around for another segment with us and we're talking about you coming over from. HOUSTON. One thing that happened. That the story goes was a huge impact on your career, not just the trade but once you got here, you were Lockard next to Pete rose how much of an impact did that play on on you and your career? Or? Had A big impact on the in my career? I like I. said I knew before I got here but Sparky, let me back up sparking Aniston's should get all the credit for all of this because sparking was the one that told both housing and everybody what I do for his of. Why he wanted me here. And then when he got when I got here, you Lockard me next to Pete Rose and you know. That was just Match made in heaven so to speak and I was there with Pete every day we talk baseball every day and we just pushed each other every single day and so you know sparky like I say he deserves all credit but locking me next to pete was great. He did two things that was the first thing he locked me next. And I didn't even tell anybody that store until after I retired one day called into the office the first month right after it toward the end of Spring Training Nathan deal. I'm never going to give you sign. He said you've proven to me that you know how to play this game and you're GonNa always do what's best for the team. And that was a twofold. It was a blessing, but it's kind of a crutch to because you know all of a sudden. Now, every time I walked to the plate I've got to think about what's best for the team I couldn't walk up there with a clear mind just ahead I had to think what's best for the team there were times I had to try to get a walk times. I had to try to do something else for Sparky me that leeway our we. Look down at third base. So two players know. But only the two of us knew I never told anybody may have told somebody but I never told them into players anybody else that I was on my own in fact, Pete criticizing me one day I burn it with a runner at first base in a tag game and the left hand on amount and I can't back in many said, why does spark make you burn out the man who was the right thing to do? Like that but you know I had I had such great support here from all the players. Johnny. All the players and of course from sparking. So it was it was it was it was a perfect match for me. Well you made a few sacrifices regarded I, I know one of them was stolen base. You probably could have had. Yeah. More stolen his because once you got on second base you did try to steal third as was because he had guys behind you the drive you in but I know there was a time that you tried to steal home which what is bred for US ed. Yeah that's the thing. So Chicago and I don't know what happened I I as I say, I had a brain locks and I was on third base with two outs and took off home. And and I'm sitting there on home plate and spa, and Tony Praise looks down at me and he said, don't you ever do that again he said I'm GonNa Swing and I looked up at him I said yes. But the point was when I at second base, those guys could drive in and you have to remember this as a base dealer. You can't just take take take I couldn't expect bets parades and all those guys take pictures. So I could steal basis. So there were times when I wouldn't I would tell them I wasn't gonNA steal at take pick a fastball out man hit it and both come home together, and then there were times when the game is Tad Nathan Inuit run run down I would ask them to take a pitch for me and they always did it and then I'd steal the base and they drive me and so that's how I became a hero. Were there did you? Ever have instances especially when you're at first and you talk about it, they're a little bit but were there times where where guys would get frustrated with you as a distraction to the hitter when you're at first? Them not knowing whether or not you're GONNA, go. Not with those guys, bench would hit behind me sometimes, and then of course read I would tell them what I was GonNa do before I got on base where one run down I said it just give me the first pitch. If I don't still on the first bit, you go ahead and hit and they all did that and I usually try to go on the first pitch I did not want to take out of their hand. I didn't want them to be hitting two strikes, etc, etc.. We work it perfectly everything worked out well. For me as a base dealer and then as the guy that drive in ruts I look I could have stolen. Seventy eighty bases every year if I were just out there running, but that wasn't my job. My job was to get on base score run for the team getting score position in those guys would drive me and it just worked out well, that way I remember the star years and years when I first came to the big leagues when morial. Still a hundred and four basis or something Hammond Jim Getting didn't weren't speaking at the end of the year because. It felt like he was just you know you never had time to hit. It was always in boring Maury Maury and I, I was convinced told myself. I would never let that happen to me. Has Been a usual year to least Yeah. How how are you been through all this the quarantine and everything that's going on everything in your world Everything going my own with except I'm like everybody else I'm. Place and I'm you know looking at the world? differently. Now from the pandemic and also from the protests and everything that's going on. I say this in all honesty anybody to live in this country in the last hundred years shouldn't be surprised about what's going on. At, some point enough is enough and I think we've reached that point and not just in America all around the world I think people are looking at things differently you know so justice and everything else and I just think that we're going to be a better world for this. It's unfortunate but somebody always has to play a price before we move forward and it's unfortunate that that that has to happen but. I mean look back through history Martin Luther King John, f.? Kennedy all these people were had to pay the price for us to move forward, and in this case, it's been a lot of people moving for had to pay a price fuss to get to where we are but I think now this country and all the other countries realize we've got to move forward of the human race not just as individual. Ethnic. Groups. Very well said, yeah, absolutely. Well, said Joe and why thank you so much for taking some time to join us today always a treat to chat with you talk baseball here, your stories and boy this was this was a lot of fun.

"All right. All right. It's 12 9 right now. 700 wlw Bill Cunningham's on vacation all week. Look, I'll be here all week. On a different walking in here with the sun up on everything that's different. Waking up with the sun up is kind of different. Not waking up to an alarm is kind of different kind of nice. So for the week and had several things you know, set up and good to go, which we'll get to eventually. But then something happens that takes the oxygen out of the room. And catches you off guard. That is the passing of Joe Morgan. On DH. It's It's odd goes, it's been one of those years were getting to the point. At my age. The guys whose baseball cards I collected seemed to be those who are nearing the end of the of their run. Just this year. Lou Brock, I had, um Joe Morgan. I had Bob Gibson. I haven't Tom Seaver. I had him. 24. Maybe not. But I knew of him when I was a kid. And Joe Morgan, somebody I've met. Like I guess any of the others once or twice when I did. It was in the of the radio booth at the stadium. Andi spends a lot of his time there and is known Joe Morgan. The different levels in his career will be the cowboy Jeff Brantley. Standing by Jeff. Good to have you How you doing? Well, I was doing really good until I picked up my phone just a little bit ago. A tough guy, but it is and we're talking it before we jumped on. You came up for the Giants, of course and Joe Morgan was Giants broadcaster when you first came up a CZ well, correct. Yes, he Waas hey was working for ESPN, but he would come in and do some games with John Miller and Candlestick back in back in the day. And you know, that was really my my first connection with a with a childhood hero. I mean, I'm sure there are plenty of guys out there that I thought that they would hit better by flapping their their back elbow when they got to the plate. You know, I was one of them when Going up and thinking, you know, after watching Joe Morgan, do it, it worked for him. And you think? Well, maybe it would work for Mei. I mean, it's just it's just not. It's not a good, not a good situation. I mean, it makes you makes you just feel a little more human than you realize. You probably were like a lot of other kids who did that. And then their coach or manager said, What do you doing? Exactly? You're jaggery right now. And I'm sure that I know this because talking with Joe, but he got a lot of Comments for that, even after his career was over, and it is in his broadcast in time, and I know people would say, Well, what was the ultimate? You know? Why did you do that? To begin with? We all do this kids thinking it would help us. It didn't help us nearly as much as it helped you and I I guess it goes back to his relationship with Nellie Fox when he first got to the big leagues. Yeah. Guess Morgan had trouble keeping his back. Elbow up, Nellie Fox said flapping like a chicken will remind you to keep it up, and apparently it worked. So you know, letting a legendary way. Of course. Defensively he was, Ah, it was a heck of a ballplayer, too. But just over the years a number of Gold Glove silver sluggers MBPs world. Siri's champs. I mean, not many people out there with the sort of Awards and and I guess, accolades and opportunities he's enjoying life. Well, and then the thing about Joe is it wasn't just mean. We remember him for baseball because he was so great. You win back to back in the piece. I mean, nobody ever forgets. You mean That's one of the reasons he was in the Hall of Fame, but Your if you get to know, Morgan, just a little bit closer. I know that when Brandon Phillips was here, there were oftentimes that Joe would come down into the locker room and he wouldn't go in the locker room. He would wait back in and rich those office and he just sit there. 10 15 minutes kind of entertaining guys and then the whole the whole time he was waiting to To give Brandon some information about something that he was not doing or something that he was doing well, and I mean that's just the way the Joe Wass whether it was on the baseball field or whether it was with Baseball assistance team. I mean, whether it was on the board of the Hall of Fame, and there were just so many different things that Joe did throughout his career and a lot of them. Hey, never raised his hand to say, Hey, this is what I'm doing. You know, I need some help here. He just made sure that that it got taken care of, and he made sure that players got yeah. Yeah, and about the broadcasting the team with John Miller. They were just a classy combination, and they held down Sunday night Baseball on ESPN for about 20 years and That's a great combination because of the two personalities. I mean, if you knew John and eunuch Jo Jo played the straight man and John played It was almost a swap between color and play by play the way that they did the game. Yeah. And you're a broadcaster. Now, obviously other people you paid attention to over time that you emulated in any way or picked up a nugget from in any way. Yeah, I think listening to keep Jackson listening to Mel Allen. They kind of had that little bit of Southern Southern, I guess is the best way I could say it in their voice. It's a relaxed approach, very relaxed. The president's very relaxed approach and just kind of let you but the thing that I enjoyed about both of those guys is a kind of gave you a little piece of themselves as they were doing the ballgame and they weren't To overly serious about Every single thing that came up and there was a little bit of banter that went on during the ball game, and I just thought it was a great listener. And I think Joe and John were the same way. Yeah, no, it absolutely wass and the idea of teasing something to get people to stick around, is now everywhere in broadcasting and I'll be on line, but he was great in coming up with something just in the course of a game. You just John Miller or whatever. I'm making this up, but let's say with two outs there six ways to score from third. What are they? And they'd be like Sunday night and I got to go to bed..

Now they got together that same ball field for you reunion to talk about how their lives at benefited by that first game. And I think it's great and I was at a screening in Washington DC last Sunday, and I was with a couple of guys from each team and I have to tell you it was very emotional for me because as I said, I was twelve years old and I wasn't able to pursue my dream, making it to the major league. The kids, these kids and Florida were not in not a place in the south, but just Florida. They were not able to pursue their dreams. And I think it's film would it has eight, Aaron, you know, talks about it, David Johnson, dairy, Sheffield, and Cal Ripken junior. So it's a very, very well done still, and it brings out the motion and shows what these kids how that game change the race, the race relations ships going forward, not with these kids because. We didn't see each other all those years and they got together again, but I think the great movie, especially in this day and age when it seems like we're becoming divided them before. And I think the young people that watch this and the older people who watch it, I think they'll see that they do have a role in trying to bring both the racist together as though forward longtime coming film, and it was way too long.

"Here on the rich Eisen show how. Are you Joe? Well, it's your phone. You haven't talked to me. That's great. Joe Morgan way to start this thing. I love it. I love it about. I'm glad you mentioned. But you know the the healthcare was a couple years ago and I am perfectly fine now hobbling around a little bit on a needed. I got a knee replacement as caused some problems, but health wise doing great grad to topic. I'm glad to be talking to you as well. Joe, how much how much baseball you take an in. You watch taking it all in what he got for me. Joe. Yeah, I, I actually worked for the reds. I'm, you know, an advisor to read and I have been for a long time and though I'm involved, you know, with on a daily basis so to speak. And then I watched baseball because I love baseball. So yeah, I am familiar with just about everything that's going on. What do you think about to Joe? What do they out to the best player in the game? People won't give him credit and I think it's five, six or whatever. I mean, I don't know what else you can do. I mean, he hits home, runs driving runs. She stills basis. He plays defense and I, I don't know any scores runs. I don't know if there's anything else, but I really admire him just the way goes out his business and let's face it. He's won three batting championship. So I mean alleys other guys real good, but I think he's the best and most insistent. What's the reason why you heard most that you couldn't when you were playing when they join? Morgan camp won't. What's the big reason you got? They said you can't play 'cause you to that. That it wasn't any specific thing because I always had speed and believe in that when I was younger, I had a really strong arm because and I always hit the ball farther and again on you know. But it was just too small that I think that was the that was the thing it wasn't couldn't play. You know, I remember when I was being scouted, a lot of things with they men you at great little player. You know little was always included in one of the reasons I signed with the Houston Astros coat forty, five at the time was because they're scout never mentioned anything other than rate player. He's never mentioned little. So that stuck with me. It wouldn't have mattered because I had in my own mind what I could do. Joe Morgan baseball hall of Famer. Joining me here on the rich Eisen show lot of hand wringing last year about pace of play. Now it's about quality of play, and I gotta tell you pace play. I was never really concerned about because I'm, I was always gonna sit there and watch a game, no matter no matter what am I understand about. A younger generation. I am definitely more concerned about quality of play. I mean, the all star game is kind of a perfect example. Forty. Eight percent of the game was either a walk strikeout or a home run, and that seems to be the way things are going right now, are you concerned about a Joe? Definitely concerned because you know, we'll talk about, you know, when I laid and so forth. When I played, it was different. And today's game is different. I'm not gonna say mine was better of this is worse is just different and you have to get accustomed to what's going on. And I've been doing that. So to speak. It just bothers me all the strikeouts. You know, the home runs, you know, the fifth long Volvo people are going to try to get home, run home runs. You know the fact that there's just not much action. Even if the all star game. The greatest players in the game are out there on the field. I never saw great defensive plays in never saw guys running faces. I'd never saw body Stephen, all I always guys standing there gets home runs and. Hey, they connected ten times..

"We've got a trio of players at six under. We've got a trill players at five under a trio of players at four under it is going to be a fun weekend of open championship golf. We had a chat with Michael Davies. One of the men in blazers covering it for NBC sports. In our one we have done, jeez here, Tony and Lauren Dungy pro football, famous, Tony dungee, and is hall of fame wife, and they have written a couple of children's books. You can check out a team Dungy dot com. Jim gaffe again is getting set to join us here shortly. And we expect a phone call from Joe Morgan. Any minute right now here in our program baseball hall of Famer, Joe Morgan, whose name came up quite a bit in our conversation with Johnny bench. I mentioned this in our number one and talked about it. We. Talked about a gym with with Tony Dungy in our number two, and that is what I believe is going to be the most fascinating draft related story to play out on the NFL gridiron this fall. And that is what happens with Lamar Jackson and the Balmer ravens. What happens when you've got a guy who so dynamic that he needs to be on the field every single snap. But that guy insists on being the quarterback or being a quarterback being called a quarterback, and you've got a quarterback who's won a Super Bowl for you all be playing with diminishing returns since he signed a huge contract, but somebody who is your starting quarterback, what do you do when you've got Lamar Jackson and you've got Joe flacco and in that regard moments ago at ravens training camp because they're, they're, they're they're up and running. Eric Wetzel. I expect Joe to have a career year quote, unquote, Joe flacco talkin ready for this one on talk that he's energized quote. Does it matter what I say? You guys are going to say it comes from Lamar anyway. Also flacco I come in this building and I work and I'm not changing that in any way saying he won't get annoyed by Lamar Jackson questions. Ready for the quote. Why four here it is. Let's go because I think we're going to win on not going to hear about it and quote. I'm telling you man, flacco interception. He's going to be fascinating. Fascinating. Fascinating story. That's three fascinating and it all plays out against the Buffalo Bills at home week one when it starts after preseason, which will obviously lost the allotted Lamar Jackson, but we all know it only matters when Tomita ball in a regular season. So Jim gaffe again, a very, very funny man is new comedy, special noble ape is in theaters. He's also in hotel Transylvania three, which is the number one movie in America, but I'm pleased to be joined by somebody. I haven't spoken to in forever and a day. There's a ninety minute documentary called longtime coming about the nineteen fifty five little league state championship that I'm going to talk about with him. And like I said, it's it's somebody on through, it'd be talking to, especially since he had a health scare to say the least he is baseball hall of Famer and my longtime ESPN colleague, Joe Morgan.
