"And he's focused and he's determined and he works hard and he comes out here. He competes and it's been a really cool situation to have zack. Justin we also have kyle. Trask and these guys get out here. Every single day and we have k. Castillo as well the stanford transit mississippi state. But these guys get out here. And i mean it is just a competition every single day and you can see why a guy like justin fields was able to play on such a big stage. You can see why when he goes in a playoff game versus clemson. He wants that he wants those moments. And it's been an awesome experience for me to be around him to be in the film room to get up on the whiteboard and talk through everything you know. The team that gets he brings to the table. What is the one thing that might have surprised you about justin upon meeting him. I did not know that. Justin had a background in baseball and just very athletic guy like you watch him on tape and you just see this strong powerful like so hard to bring down in the pocket. I was so impressed. When i got to talk through with him. What he was going through what he's having to process within his ability to make plays and he just looks the part of a guy that when he walks in the locker of your alpha. That dude just looks apart but it was so cool for me to know the back story of his life just how involved he was in baseball baseball. I played to me right off the bat that just as a coach i see. Wow there's so much i can do with that background. All these guys that come from Other sports immediately you know. Oh my gosh if he has this background. Here's what i can do if he has this background. So it's been really cool to know that about justin in push him in some areas because he can make those off script you know sliding left the tough throws because of that background that he has and so to me. That was a really cool thing to figure out and then apply that to our practice building some of our workouts for guys like just builds. I had watched him through these last couple of years. I knew about and when he went to georgia. But i don't have that interaction with until he gets here and just watching the way that he approaches things. He's already approaching things like a true professional. He's here early. He asked to get extra time in you know he gets an opportunity to to to prepare for his interviews. he calls me on the phone. And says hey. Can you help me kind of prepare. This offense can you. Can we go over this again. Because i want to nail it. I love more that baseball conversation. You know but to me. It's a positive right. There's a lot of positives you take from that and we talked earlier. You mentioned matthew stafford and you talk about cuyler. Murray and baker mayfield baseball but to me. Let's go back to. John elway for crying out loud. This is not a. It's not a bad thing to have that baseball on your background. I think john beckett good job explaining that explain it and i think the bigger thing was john belk talking about the alpha personality. Justin feels displays. When he kind of walks into the room he walks in with a level of confidence that you can tell. He's an fleet guy. He doesn't shrink The fact that they are working together with a bunch of notable quarterback wilson. Couch rests caja kostelic..

"It's a really weird semi flashback. Here for the punisher say nam cashback. I mean if you didn't already know his deal you'd think he was just spacing out in about kites micro is they didn't have the music you just be like just thinking about kites happy place you listening to me. He's like god micros going on a rant again and he just didn't do killers family. It's all implied. My wife my wife choked on my wife jo on the straight. You didn't get or i guess. We got strangled strength. Got strangled strangled is outside choke inside that makes sense. Maybe it was a kite runner situations. You got like knifed. God we're gonna rip on. John belk a lot in this episode offers shitty acting but i love the line read for what he says wrong wrong. He's it it's excellent. That's exactly what i've in this to fight monsters then they. They show a clip of the twin towers like. Oh no. we're not allowed to remember that why wasn't move on. I mean it is a little bit of foreshadowing. I really don't wanna talk about it so. Nc as they transition to show you that there at the airport that's very clearly reused animation from the chameleon episode those are the very beginning of the chameleon episode. I think we used it as one of our Title guards naked under the trenchcoat. Wish i was wondering the same thing. He shows a lot of chest and they never really show whether he's wearing pants. It's just darkness under the trenchcoat for the legs and then mariah asked green your ceremonial accounting. Wait he no. He only wears that. He's definitely wearing socks like the guy who bangs with socks on black dress socks. Tell whether he's wearing khakis or nothing under their new year's a shot him getting off the plane before he makes act. What is actually a pretty good little joke here but then you could see through his trenchcoat like those legs go all the way from here to there just what he wears on airplanes. Just a trenchcoat. it's way more comfortable. Just free ball in it. I think that's a crime is is the nineties. That's the way to get through security. The fastest just be naked. Just be naked when no metal detection. Just walk through the airport trenchcoat. That's it so does he still have his powers he doesn't because he goes on a little bit of a awkward tangent about how he lied to not have the super strength of a scientifically created madman anymore and they starts calling her calypso. Mike calypso justice. Shitty joke does the on hans without his main. I took it more than just the barest forgot six pluto tummy brocher ceremonial hunting garden.

"john belk" Discussed on Niners Nation
"I think that those four guys they know they can trust each other to keep their mouth shut because nothing is leaked out of this regime that they didn't want leaked out in four plus years that they've been together so i would bet those four guys no but i would also bet the only those four guys no i would doubt they like d'amico ryan's defensive coordinator knows you know. I i don't think the rest a coaching staff knows. I don't think scouts. No they are perfectly not telling anybody anything i would imagine. That's the case in. It has worked well so far for this regime. You know people keep telling me people are texting me. Hey what are you hearing. what are you like. I have sources but people are texts. They may in there. Like i don't know i'm i'm worried. It's going to be mack jones. How are all these guys wrong. Shefty in more and all that stuff. My response to them was pretty obvious. Like where were morton shefty. And chris simms when the niners traded for jimmy garoppolo or traded for trent williams or traded to force buckner or pick brandon or picture von like any other moves the forty niners have made. Nobody's been able to predict so. I'm not worried that the insiders now you know don't know what's going on because they haven't in the past. There's going to be a lot of people that look really stupid when this draft pick is made and they're going to be in defense mode of while. no. I said i was hearing that. Yeah from somebody who's not connected. Oh i i had my son tell me so that i could say i heard it. And then there's going to be the people who ended up being right but let's not give them credit because we know damn well. They weren't told they were not told. They took guess they got a one in three chance of being correct. Like it's just stupid to me that people are seeing this and then going. Ooh that means that they're actually taking that. No they don't hear anything from anybody. Credible they're hearing it from people that don't know anything. I'm not hearing anything from anybody. I'm just trying to look at the facts of the situation. What they have said what they have done. And how that applies to the future and make my best guess. And that's why i think it's just in fields. Because they made the move up to number three. They said that they were discussing. You know four or five other pick. They went all the way up to three. Because i think they knew what the jets were doing it to. They went to three because they want the guy that has elite skills and to me. That's just in fields. shannon is talked about. He doesn't have a type about how you know. His views on quarterbacks have changed since he's become a head coach. When i put everything into the bucket and i just look at. What's going on to me. Everything points to justin fields. But that's not because. I'm hearing anything from anybody. That's just my assessment of the situation right in in this one assessment. I have of the situation. Look this is a team that is drafted people that they purposely never scheduled a workout with In years they could schedule workouts just so that nobody would know that's who they're targeting if they traded up because they knew absolutely matt jones was the guy that they wanted because so far what we've seen since they traded up isn't very good for mac because didn't have a very good day. He has not hire john. Belk which screams alarms to me. So if they did know that that's who they wanted because he's done nothing to win it. Then i don't see how shannon attending that day because he wouldn't want to give that signal out he would just stay away from that pro day but instead he made a big deal of attending that pro day and everybody knows including him that he doesn't attend very much for draft and because he prefers to just stay at home and keep researching and doing all that stuff because he doesn't get much out of going to the protas. The protas are a lot more about the gm's chitchatting with each other and laying the groundwork for draft deals or other trades. That are the could happen so to me that signals. If they knew that matt jones was the guy when they traded up. Why would kyle shanahan be at that product. And if he wasn't the guy when they traded up. What is matt jones done to earn it over the other guys nothing. Yeah and you're right the point about back to. He's now working with john. Belk john back. He's clearly shanahan's guy. He has said so publicly on the record that they are friends that they talk frequenly. He's worked with every quarterback at the forty niners hat on their roster last season. While i guess not just johnson. But he's worked with garoppolo and molins and Cj beathard he knows the system intimately and all of a sudden about three weeks ago which is pretty much when the forty niners made the trade. The number three trae. Lance started working with john back so to me that shows that the forty niners were debating between those two guys and not mack. Jones like that is a massive massive indicator to me. The forty niners. You know sometimes. Play coy with stuff. But this is something that you can't really hide. You're either working with with john back or you're not and mack. Jones is an to me that means. He is not in consideration. I don't care what the betting odds say and yet also got a mention. Zack wilson. I think zack. Wilson is an option. I don't know if we would be over. Justin field to trae lines. I don't know where they rank those three. But zac wilson also works with john belk now. That one's longer kind of like justin fields where they kind of purposely sought out john beck and hired him not because the niners said saw the time. The niners didn't have the third pick in trae. Lance is the one that yeah it's pretty clear. He hired john back just to try to be the number three. Pick but zac. Wilson also works with john beck so i would think he's in the running for number three. It's just almost definitely not going to be the case. Where he's there at number three. I cannot wait. We are a week away. I i want all the speculation. I enjoy the speculation and talking about it. But i just want to pick to be made because i think i'm going to be right and i just want whoever it is. I want to be able to focus on the future on. Okay we've got our guy. What does he do. Well what does he not do. Well what will he do better here. You know how. Can i envision him interacting with the rest of the offense like i just wanna be able to pencil in that guy. I want to be able to draft that guy madden and i'm ready like let's get to it. I'm ready. did you see the thing tweeted really early this morning. About espn's draft kit thing that according to espn. There was something like a ninety eight percent chance that justin feels it was going to be available like eighth overall. Something crazy like that so it was this thing that you basically you say. Are you picking in the top in the first half of the draft or the second half. Okay first-half are what position. Are you looking for quarterback. What type of quarterback are you want him..

"Vargas. And people loved it. So see I've been thought about that they need to go head into take that belt. You know what I'm saying that Joe do that fight in Madison Square Garden if we could get. Seats on my God at the garden. Love at the garden. Man You're long on under caught. If all the main event Elvis, I can't front. Maybe it's belong who's going to be fighting the nail bellows from from. You know if he could knock this dude out now he's showing his powers real because I don't think this dues ever been knocked out plus he's a decent fighter. You know young man they got to put this car together. That's on the car to resign, which was arial. This. Amount come on across memo now you wishing I. Know. Nine promoting I. wish man go with. I, was wish I was that easy. Now we could bring your diamonds back though. You know dominance adamas look like he's done. He lost that one time like your mouth retired India and that's the thing. But when fifty five dollars is one American dollar, you'd think about you if you stack and you just send it back. Making so much and your country. You know people by they building houses right away. There's no tax on the land. So some people just like you on good I'm done I'm I'm I'm I'm chilling right here by my river but anyway, what else are we talking about what we got? What we what we got last couple of subjects. Like a UK. To. Include Watch I. watched the show. So we obviously going to talk Goeman and Williams and then obviously. Jason. into. You got to. Start. With that thing because I don't. I just realized that actually L. surprise really hurting. So there's actually a managed by a Shitty Finkel. Saw I I was actually very surprised to hear that That was cool. I it is an up and coming kid is like. According to Dominic, Ingo like famous like trainer out here in the UK is last project, right? So is the last like you know kind of kids that has come from his Jim that it wants to take from that level all the way up to channel titles, world champion. So and and after that is done like investing in boxing light goes me just be like two or next issue about the people that he did that like account broke, for example. So I mean we call him talk too much about the opposition level that he was in their wave. is going to be I guess I trying to make his market like one sixty, eight super middleweight division and it'll based on makers opposition. It looks Nice but he's supposed to do that to those kind of guys. So I I can't really just be jumping on the the hype trend too much older signs are looking good by you have like. a good fighter with a good. Trina with like a promotion that is like behind him and a manager that tells me that you know is looking ahead and to. You know am I gonNa make my name in the US right. So having like a Shelly Finkel as a manager is an unusual move in the UK but a smart move especially in that one sixtieth division. So the only thing I can add to that is that. If trains you know I'm GonNa pay attention ingle also trains William who we talking about later and he trains used to train anyway and not to train Kelly Brook for the Crawford Fight and the last thing I'll says that I, hope. I can look like Inglewood Day because I bet you he's he's my age or older. Older ordered. My man guns insane. It's crazy. No. Seriously I'm out the screen shot with him and Leon Williams insane. So my take A. Wait I notable yes. So might take on his Williams demand definitely looks department he he looks like you know what? I'm saying Nice Taw strapping young men. You know what? I'm saying handsome good talker good sense of humor in the ring. He does good combinations was doing four and five combinations to the body was gone up to the head. He's working the JAB. Beautifully he could take parts his re Iq for the level that he's at he showed his I Q I'm really excited about this kid man I was watching fighting it just brought me back memories of like jerk has occupied. Type of fighter that will he could be obviously with the competition. Going up, he can show more of his skill set but yet he something to look out for and remember until you really Hutchinson man out of the Ain't good. He fights with his own style mixed in a little bit of with the ingles style united and and they have all reason to be high on this fighter and I'm not surprised. Shelly figure got his head all he really Hudson's business. You know what I'm saying making happen. This is It was an amazing fight to watch. He's definitely at amazing fighter to keep watch up to keep notice of also I can't remember his name was trying to remember his name, but there's another fighter that was on the card He's a cousin of Prince Naseem Hamed you do you remember his name maybe? He was an undefeated fighter. He was out of the. On the on the on the. Right to upset. You said. We need to double back You know obviously, I've seen the quick knockout the Jambek I can't pronounce his last name. He's going to teach us how to pronounce it but I'll tell you this then. We could. We could just call him. Khazakh style is his nickname. First name is John Belk witches is in to. Thicken he's nine in no five Cao's. He's the WBO global. In the WBZ, continental America Champion You know he's an Asian champion he's trained by Buddy mcgirt. He was on the ESPN card and we we forgot to talk about his very fast and brutal knock cow of I don't know who he knocked out, but he slept them. ass. Up Style. Yeah. But that does the thing that I think. So I I I'm GONNA GONNA take a passer is name like so exotic Nitpick Alemka newly. So alum, Cannoli Celo but yeah, I mean like again, right we talking about it eight an old guy that has like some in Oh hi behind him a little bit bag that we d Hutchinson is so I guess like we we have to give him like the same kind. Of credit especially getting spectacular knockouts like you said, right so on that's on that platform same way whereas we hyping up like Elvis way we have to hype him some way we have been Obama with Hutchinson, right so middleweight division Sims, you know there is like. Another guy from Kazakhstan India right. So another punch of from Kazakhstan. So shuttled to not country just like you know being a hotbed for boxing since forever. But now on on a professional level, they've always been a big so country. With like a good tradition in boxing but over the last six seven years or so we've kind of seeing much more study fights out there and they all have that you know power that we talk about right. So as interesting interesting to know that he is science atop bring but managed by eagles cleanest who has you know Loma, Chanko and And and Alexander. And all those those eastern Europeans. Almost all the Russian guys but not all of them. Were couvert, for example, is now under him? All right. So the talk about the other fight on the card routine moheb Fazal Deen. God Luke Jones Fazal dealings, cuzner prisoners inhabit he's had an off and on career he's been Professional for four or five years. These had you know fights here days only had about eight or nine fights and he taken on Jones. Who is also one of those blue collar. Working man who fights and he just needed opportunity. You know he's been on the end of wrong decisions and Fazal. Deen was pretty much. This. was his this he he was supposed to win this fight. Despite. Putting himself on the stage right so because You're always going to run stories they all you know is a cousin of Prince Naseem Hamed's but the reality of it is like is not really a fighter has been making a lot of noise in now in the. Circuit many apparent. Apparently everybody knows him on the circuit they're lying they. You know I'm studying. Easily.

"In the NFL Pro Bowler TJ Hirschman Zodda foxsports NFL analyst also works out with a lot of these guys knows his stuff. You know. I'm looking at this stuff and I'm looking at. All these players you've worked out just in Herbert. Let's let's let's re address this. You've worked out with Justin Herbert you like him a lot, right? Physically if. I've never seen before you. He's big. In his arm is just unbelievable. You would have to see. You can't even put it like I played. I've been around all the best quarterback I've never seen anybody physically. Throw the ball like he does nobody Joe Berle. You worked out with him. Yeah. What do you think? I like Joe Joe is a super confident. and. What really sold me was the last couple of weeks it was raining almost every day. I don't think he'd do one bad ball and rain. Everything was on the money, and so joe is on. Be a really good quarterback. Just temperament is confident and it shocked me in the rain. Everything was on the money. Would you make it to as tape and his pro day on film? So, what physically a talented player just the injury history! I'm any tower. Hetty not been hurt. Shinjo borough would have pretty much been fighting for that number one spot, and they probably still are I thought it was impressive considering. just having surgery when he did coming back from a hip injury. Putting network into a super super super talented is just a matter of is his body got hold up. Our pro as overrated. Fro Days are holding rated in okay. I'll give analogy. and. We'll just talk quarterbacks for distance. If, we have a final final exam college professor. Let us take the test through to four times we should. scorning on that final, and so that's what's going on especially with quarterback is. They practiced this pro day time and time and time again with the same guys that are going to be running around so when it's time for the product. They're going to perform well because they already practice. They've already taken big Zam before actually taking the exam, and so it's rehearsed. Georgia palm would have run. JOE's product Trent would've run in had ran to as pro day, John Belk and those guys they did run Justin Herbert's pro day and so. You're you're taking exam for to actually down? What was your day like? Pro Day was a number one. It was it was different. At Time Oregon State. We didn't have an indoor facility, so we went. Outside ran the forty. It was freezing cold. went back inside that the jumps and that was it no routes in so myself Chad and a couple of other receivers. We went up to US's pro day. they wouldn't let us work. Also the coaches. We went down to Dorsey High School. Reject the field in the roster. They all came down here. How about that? The receiver just on film and I think there's a bunch of good ones. But when I look at Gerry, judy an icy, his explosiveness, his first four five steps. It doesn't even look. He's pulling away from lsu defenders from Georgia guys from Auburn Guys I look at him and I think he's so much better than everybody else. What do you see having played the position for a decade and pro football. It's not a millette people in on a secret, not seeing any some some, though this some good trainers. Judy number one was she was fortunate. He's trained with some guys that know what they're doing down there for it I will say that he's the guy he's trained with. Those trainers really know what they're doing. The key to plan receiver is not as I four steps is his ability to decelerate his ability to stop and put his foot and ground. She does that better than ninety percent of the guys in the NFL now. Like his ability to stop. Is. Unbelievable, he could be celebrate. He can stop with the best of them, and that's why he creates so much separation. Is there another receiver. Let's take Michael Pittman. At USC not a burner I told somebody I a GM on the East Coast Call Me, today. Any he said WHO's your most underrated player in the draft? We were just joking around and I said you're gonNA think I'm a homework, because I live in L. A. I said I think Mike I watched Michael. Pitman's Dad, he was tough as a five dollar steak and I said Pittman. Tough kid, he walked onto US's a true freshman, and was a great play making special teams guy. He's gotten better every year at USC. USC Several Years has had great coaching. Take Michael USC. What you? He's not a burner. What do you see? Man so I guess I could be called a homer to I'm privy to Michael. Pittman because I just happen to be working with. Talent is exactly what man. Pittman is a worker. When I tell you the worker, he could have one leg and he'll call you and be like. Go workout like he got a root canal. In the morning and we worked out two hours after. A root canal, and now what is prize for people like underrated Pittman can decelerate. He's big. He's tough. Pittman is going to play ten years in a league because he can do what I just said about Judy. She can decelerate if you can decelerating create separation. You'RE GONNA. Play in the NFL that's it's about it's not about how fast you are. Can you stop? Can you stop like a Ferrari or you? Stop like a car when they screech goes. If they make that much noise when they stop not going to be successful, you need to.

"I'm all for being patient okay if he's not if if it's not close and he's not ready and colt mccoy is nowhere near able to even be backup. Do they need another quarterback. You can still put up backup if if keenum gets hurt and you've got to put them out there with a truly protected simplified simplified game plan. You can do that. Come on i he. I don't see by the way him being so far removed from playing being in an n._f._l. Game i believe time in his in his thoughts talking to gruden and everybody that they don't think he's anywhere near ready and that's fine but we haven't seen a guy that scared that skittish that looks like he can't do it like he can't go in there and hand off or throw quick bubble scream he could do that three three you know ten times a game if required and so you don't think he's got a little john belk enema no. I don't think he's got any john on beckenham. John belk needed five pairs underwear before he went out in a regular season game. He was so frightened and terrified no askins. I think i'm doing a worst case scenario situation but i think i think it's the worst case scenario that could easily happen and and i just don't think you want to be forced to play. This kid at quarterback before you think he's ready. In other words. He needs to be third quarterback back. The third quarterback going into the season and if cole mccoy is not your second. You need another quarterback okay well. That would really if you think about this. Okay think about think about in the next few days. Colt mccoy is just unhealthy they throw them on i r popper whatever or or or they released him or whatever and now they go out and sign who who are the veteran quarterbacks that are available like right now. All are there any veteran quarterbacks that haven't signed. You know like wh where's jake locker. These days like who's out there right now. You know where's where's tyrod. Taylor is he on a roster josh josh mccown. I think aaron just got picked up by. Somebody who lost a quarterback didn't he. Yes he ah yes. He did the jets. I want to say no the eagles the eagles by the way tommy imagine this imagine they signed trevor simian if he hasn't signed with anybody brock osweiler if he hasn't signed with anybody imagine the colin kaepernick discussion. Why didn't you sign up for nick. They don't need any of that. If cold can't go oh dwayne haskins is the backup and they're going with two quarterbacks okay. I think that would be crazy reaction to that to them. Signing well they do actually have a quarterback on the roster the guy clendenin or whatever his name is yeah yeah and knuckleheads. There's always mark sanchez. They can put a jury in alex smith and have the emergency quarterback. Did you see alex smith long long before cole. Mccoy is walking around with one of those medieval type things on his legs. You don't believe that we love cole. Don't and we like alex too. I wanna both to be healthy but look to me. I'm not a huge keenum fan. I am a bigger keenum fan than i am. A mccoy fan <hes> <hes> they're both dead ends the sooner you can get this guy ready to go in and be as you know is competent is either one of them the better for this franchise moon forward. I did the you know the go ahead the funny part. Though is the sooner you you do that and i think this is the way you're thinking the sooner you know whether he can play quarterback or not the sooner you can move on from him and draft another quarterback next year. That's part of it. That is now now. I i don't know how much look it would have to be really disastrous right. You know he'd have to start it would ten plus games in appear to not have any chance of developing into a guy and i doubt we're going to get that with him. First of all everything we're hearing and i know we heard this about r._g..

He auctioned off the bag of flour for the for for two hundred and fifty dollars. Dollars right for the the sanitary commission. I think it was called which was this non partisan help organization serving both sides of the civil war. So regardless of where you stood in a civil war. You had to be behind the the sanitary commission. And so that in itself brought people together so he auctioned off this this bag of flour for two hundred fifty dollars and someone else outbid and and auction did again. And so they they kept auctioning this this bag of flour until they raised something like eight thousand dollars in the original auction. Thank you. Eight thousand dollars also gives you a sense of during these silver rush. Dave just how much money people had to squander for things like this. And we're just enjoyed the the the sort of frenzy of spending their money for this cause on this ridiculous sack of flour. So when the the sack of flour, then traveled to Virginia city, they were so burned by how much their neighboring town could raise for the sack of flour. They tried to outbid it. But they could only raise five thousand dollars, and they're they're public. Shame was was severely. Ding divide us and long story short this sack of flour procession of the sort of guilt wagon with Mark Twain, several other people on it made its way throughout the website where all these little mining towns, and it keping auctioned off again, and again, and again until it finally arrived in San Francisco, and then ultimately made its way across the country to the I guess the San Francisco the pardon me, the Saint Louis. Agricultural fair, and it raised something like two hundred fifty thousand dollars at the end of everybody enjoyed telling stories, and that was fun for them as they were on the frontier, they also did a lot of dancing. What John's book does is it recreates original more moment with Morton and Winthrop, and the the clash of how do you live in America, are you formal and buttoned-down or do you live for the day and take a day off now and again and clearly Mark Twain was in both both camps. We need to mention however, simultaneously with this wonderful tale of tricksters, and how much money we have and living wild we develop Jim crow. How is that American fun? Oh, well, are you talking about the rice? Character of Jim crow upon whom the the Jim crow laws were based because Jim crow was on black face minstrel character created by this this white person TD rice performer who represented sort of all of the bullion, but also irreverence the people feared in African Americans in antebellum period. And so it was safe to watch. Jim crow be irreverent and be erotic and playful on stage, but he also represented this threat that came to justify what we call. Jim crow laws because Jim crow laws were in place to keep Jim crow in place. It's character fund is a way of talking about how America goes through liberation transformation. We see it in the seventeenth century in Massachusetts, Plymouth rock. We see seen in the eighteenth century breaking away from the English masters. We see it now in the nineteenth century with the African Americans. Pre a preceding the before the civil war. There's a moment of transformation it's going to take a century of laws, but the joy is part of sedition John how to say this. It's rebellion sedition. It's defiance. It's all those things with a smile on its face. Yes. Certainly I I would say probably more defiance more revolt more rebellions than necessarily tradition. Though, many would see it as as such depending on what laws being broken and how near and dear that law is to the people who defended the after the Astra theatre ride. I wanna mention that. Because it was also mid-century and to make sure that American fund also involved criminality. When it was thrown in as a contest between European culture, some actor McCreadie performing hamlet onstage and American culture, which was Edwin Forrest performing hamlet onstage. Why did they riot? Well, they right because these are basically fan bases. These these are kind of football thugs as we know them today. And that's how these so-called Bowery boys, which was a pretty well intact. Subculture of kind of volunteer firemen and second generation mostly Irish emigrants, but also various ethnic, and they kind of defended of their their actor Edmund forest against McCreadie. They considered to be weakish. So what what we have in the this putatively fun event is a kind of more an example of how how sucks, and you know, riders can kind of let let loose with their their more criminal inclinations in in. Given the right or wrong circumstance. In other words, there's always a threat of criminality. And when it crosses into that it ceases being fun, and and can become the opposite of what was originally intended. Definitely. And I think that that that threat is is is right there in the in the grain of whatever sort of event, or our culture, you're looking at here, you have a self regulating crowd that has enjoying everyone else's fun as much as their own, and they're kind of acting in a more communal sense as opposed to a self serving and violence. Professor, this is for centuries. We must go fast. Industrialization of the of Coney Island. We go to to out side groups in the nineteen twenties the roaring twenties because of the car it roared along one group, we've mentioned the dancing of the African Americans the invention of the Lindy, but the other group I wanna make sure we flag. This is the new woman the flap. How was that fun? How is it? Presented. Okay. Well, they're the kind of the the granddaughter. Daughters of the the new women of the eighteen nineties in nineteen hundred zero the Suffragettes who, you know, the the term was originally coined, but whereas the Suffragettes were more of a a reformist group, which which you know, kept it very kind of domestic morals and attitudes of flappers wanted to have every bit as much fun as men have been having over the centuries in America. And so they flaunted it they they drank and they've smoked invented the most wonderful slang, the proved to be much Whittier than their male opponents, and they also did single out men as being whether killjoys or thorough Tehran's kind of kind of their opponents. So they they went toe to toe with them and through fun. Whether it was drinking and Speakeasy or dancing Lindy hop themselves. They showed their real political force with them. What you write emasculating wit, it meant to stab into the culture and. The culture the culture recoiled. It was frightening it recoiled, but it also was tickled. I mean, everyone kind of loved the flapper unless a hated them Harry Crosby. I have to flag him because he seems an excess, but there's a moment in which he has poetry enemies Jay's related to J P Morgan. He said. As an aristocrat, and he's also self destructive uses cocaine aerobatics sex threats gunfire. Eventually commits suicide at the ram at the Ritz. Of course, he represented an extreme kind of fun was he admired was he venerated? Well, that's an excellent question. I'm not sure if I can answer that one accurately, certainly he was he was a very popular figure. You know? He knew anyone who's to be known among the Hemingway and FitzGerald Stein's, and whatever, you know, the the ex patriot and northeastern American art world, and he was he was a great player among poets. But he was also this extreme hedonist of the most individualists sort and kind of lived lived for his his own tastes in dalliances. So he keeps chances a nice counterpart to a lot of the more communitarian fund that there was also on the he certainly makes FitzGerald seem like a Scribbler come to the loop. Exactly. All right now a detail about this period. Chaplain creates modern times, it's a talkie in. There are the two characters the trap talking and the Gammon played by Paulette Goddard. What did she represent? Oh, polite. Goddard? Well, she was a girl who the kid, right? The girl from the war. She was she was the the the most abject figure of the depression, except a wonderful thing about this movie, which was kind of chaplains swansong as a silent film star because. Yes, it was a talking, but it just it just had a couple of lines of speech, and it and it was Chaplin's first speaking role. And when you say that ridiculous song. Waiter, but Paulette Goddard character the kid and the tramp himself were kind of the the refuse of American society who still in spite of of their their poverty and their objection. Their homelessness are always running from the law manage to have a great deal of fun possibly because of it. The fun in the movie is it's threatening. Is it meant to be a challenge you mentioned at one point. They had an original ending for the Hayes sensors in Hollywood polit garnered going to a convent. So did that the end of that movie frightened people? Well, I think the movie itself. Could have frightened people. You know, people are especially in Hollywood, quite thin skinned in the days of the the Hazak in particular kind of ran scared of that even may west herself. But I think it's reading to to have a kind of an anti-capitalist communist. I mean, right there that original titles amasses. Message to it. And he ultimately defied everyone's fears of the film, and you know, they go off smiling into the sunset, and you know, even as they're being pursued getting away from Winthrop and Bradford one more time American fund is the book four centuries of joyous revolt.

Now, let me ask you this. We didn't touch upon this. Where did you get the pictures for the book, and who took the pictures, John give any credit photographer took the pictures? Really? That was going to be whoops. There goes my mind that was going to be my second. Guess I guess I guess I should say guest as people we have on the show, and you'd have to look at the book because to be honest. I can't remember her. Okay. But I I don't I don't remember if I ever met her in person because again being out of commission during a lot of that. Right. I'm Bob worked directly with her the night. Your timing was good. I told Bob that whole fall he took. You know, what he's milking this big time. I wanted to mention though that this time of year, if you are it depends where you are in the country. But I'll tell you if you're in the San Diego earlier, southern California with the rains, we've had it's the perfect time of the year for working out in the yard weeds. Come up real easy. If you've got pull we sure, but because I'm moving I I'm digging up a lot of things and transplanting them. And you have to move roses timing here the perfect time of year. It's a great time of year for moving almost anything except tropicals. You know, you don't really wanna mess with tropicals during the cold months, but every doormat correct? Well, it's not only that they're dormant. But because they're sensitive to cold weather, if you damage the root system and get a toast. Yeah. And you get cold that goes into that and bacteria starting and root rot. Just not good news. I'm very familiar with your backyard and most of your plant material. What is the biggest plant tree, whatever that you? You have to move that you're going to take with you. That's going to be a challenge. I think there's one I'm not sure I can move Tigers going to help me move some of this stuff. But one I would like to move is a trachea carpet. Tequila, tequila. Okay. It's a dwarf windmill palm and the one in my yard stance about. Five feet tall. But it's forty years old. I'm going to imagine very slow growing. And it's reached it's height after forty it'll keep growing, but slow it's five forty years a lot. So that that is maybe the biggest plant that I would move. But I also have some Australian grass trees that I grew from seed, and they're they're virtually impossible to find. I don't I don't think tiger. You've probably never even sold any internet thing since we're talking real estate, John. My next question is this you've got people that you sold the house. They've agreed on the price. They're going to buy it, right? How did you negotiate that backyard in terms of they know what you're taking in? What's gonna stay first of all? I I well, I'm showing him around. I determined how much do you really know about plants, and they they're from Florida. Okay. So they are kind of used to tropical things, and they like evergreens, but I mean, they're happy with Bert paradise. And sure the typical stuff like that. So I did they said now everything's staying except the pots, right? I go y'all pots are going to be gone. And then there's some plants in the back that I wanted to go up, which is where these Australian grass desire and things like that that they would never know that they were gone. Just the whole empty area that whole back areas kinda you get into no man's land. And you're like, okay, whatever let's go back. Right. What's GPS to find the house? Well, congratulations on this failed. It takes a little pressure off heavily started construction yet. No, k still empty pallets still. Yep. Okay. There's a lot going on there. And. The area. I thought was going to be my rose garden right now may not end up being a rose garden because of soil. No, the soils excellent. But my wife wants some type of cash crop to help pay for water and stuff and right now, we're investigating on growing coffee on the property, but the most ideal part of the property for coffee is right where the rose garden was going to be and they can make. Hey tiger. Let's see if we can answer a question real quick. Yes. Mona had also asked know of any good grow lights to use for indoor during the winter. What do you look for to make sure it's adequate? Now, I was looking there was a company that made a lot of good just kits residential kits for grow lights called hydro farm. And I was just looking at their website to give her a make and model of a kit that I suggested, but it seems like they moved more into commercial grow lights. Yes. So I don't I don't necessarily know of hydro farm would be the best choice for a little kit. But Mona the one thing that you want to consider for grow lights for winterizing houseplants or bringing other plants inside. Is that I they they produce a lot of really good LED lights now in the LED ones. Give a lot of different wavelengths in light, which are really good for just basic houseplants. Some of some of the grow lights that are out. There are meant for commercial growing. You know, there there's you know, the different gas lights for lice and lights things like that. But if you're just looking for a simple house plant or indoor plant light kit. Look for an LED one. They're real easy to use. They don't get too hot. And they produce a lot of different wavelengths for light which are important for the plants, especially if you're keeping him indoor through the winter, and you can leave them running for long periods of time without completely draining your electricity Bill as well. So I wish I could give you a name and a brand of one. But the one source that I had that I was gonna suggest I don't think produces in a residential. You're more commercial. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. You know, if you really want to find out about grow lights, go to any hydroponics store. Oh, yeah. Well, they're all setup for growing plants. Yeah. Yeah. And and now it's legal to do that feel comfortable to walk right in at all the cannabis growers. I mean, they they knew everything that was required for lights any pa- Melfi. So you can do the same thing. And now like you're saying with the LED lights, there are friends Steve Goethe was involved in an operation where they were growing tomato crops in warehouses, and they were lighting plants from the side and the top. So I if you grow tomatoes commercially and get production out of a warehouse, you'll do fine lights. Yeah. There's there's a lot of solutions up there that that shouldn't cost too much. No. And I was going to say that same thing as if you go to a hydroponic shop. They have they have nice little home kits right at, you know, aren't you expensive easy to use you just plug them in and put a timer on them. And they're good to go. So it used to be though, and I'm not sure because I haven't been involved with the indoor lighting for a long time. But back in Michigan when we would setup lights additional lights for house plants in the winter. It was always important that the light source was very close to the plant. You know, like you couldn't put a light in the ceiling inhabit light up the plants below the plants when it really benefit from that very much. So what you would need would be to be within six to twelve inches from the top of the plan. I don't know if that's still true. Yeah. Because I can pick Chanel the indoor hydroponic growing right into the lights are all hunger. Oh, yeah. Grow low. Exactly. Yeah. That would make sense now. But you know, if it is a lot of people will take a shelf a shelf. Unit like metal shelving units stack all their house once on that. They'll mount a a light. Exactly. And you know, that usually works out, really. Well, if you do the LED ones, you don't have to worry about 'cause they used a lot of heat, and they are close, and you're running your heater in the in the wintertime because you wanna be comfortable you can make it too hot for your plan. So the LED fluorescent tubes, which weren't that hot coal burning flares. Right. As we stepped us think they were called full spectrum. We're the best. So yeah, Mona check a local shop. But I think for years situation. Probably an LED little light van would be really easy to use them. Like, we said mounted on the shelf in LA last forever and their lot cheaper. Well, they're getting cheap. Yellow pages. I mean at shop they are kept. We need to do that. You're probably within five minutes of applause. Video where she lives. We don't know where Mona lives. That's true. As I recall it in Utah. Listen, east county east county. They were the first ones to go ahead. They're so that'd be fine. Mona. Okay.

Redford is Eli, your most ASI quarterback? Yeah, definitely. Who has the most asked defense was the most asked defense Redford that would probably be some combination of the falcons and bucks together so bad. What about the chiefs though? Chiefs defense is pretty subtle, ask for sure like they can't really tackle or do anything else, right? But in this case, I'm kind of okay with it because that means Mahomes just throw like ninety times a game just to Duncan everyone in every single play, which is like indisputably. Awesome. So I'm okay with them being asked like maybe it's a tactical s. situation on the on the merits. It's ass. But one small thing though is that that they're so good on offense now that it makes the trade of Marcus Peters seem a lot dumber in my opinion because they had had Peters on Sunday night. Maybe they win that game. They probably don't win that game, but still would have been something right now. There's just nothing on that defense outside of Justin Houston, which is not good. Oh, and who's the other pass rusher. D. Ford? Yeah. Yet the to me the like what's frustrating with the Peters trade, especially in. Context.

Who will be the first coach fired Redford and should be greeted, but they're not gonna do that. No, we'll we'll probably be Dirk cutter. I mean, I wish you would be Vance Joseph as Broncos fan. He's going to be like super fired after the season. 'cause I don't see a way really packing it in in the middle of the year, but yet Dirk cutter is bad. The Broncos are so annoying, man. He also call for his own firing too. Did he he? But they also they just gave up. Mike Smith is a sacrificial lamb Mike Smith who will go back to being a mafia extra or major league umpire, of course, about a pink boy for sure, absolutely. Has worn a pinkie ring at some point in his life. But I actually, I think I think Joseph is more likely to be cut particularly after tonight. When this podcast is they will be playing, I believe, a cardinals. If they lose that game, I think Joseph is out and then go ways already. Can we despair moments thought for how awful Bill O'Brien is and how amazing it is that he's still got a job. The red zone shit is like fantastic. Real of one real. They have so many good players. How could you possibly be that bad at that thing with the guys that they have on their team? Like I would a better job, but I would probably just tell like, I'd be like you guys figured out, it's fine..

"Like tyrod it seems like it's gonna play darnold oddly, the conversation is really moving towards the start Louis Riddick on TV on sportscenter. Last night was just like it's ridiculous. If Donald doesn't start for the jets, which is pretty aggressive. We did. We literally did this with Blake Bortles one year that's where was he has a good literally the second preseason game, and he looks good, and he hits open guys and he's looking great institute threes and we say it is an abomination. If he doesn't start week one, and then we rush them along. There is a value in, I guess, not redshirt rookie quarterback, but at least giving him five, six games to sit through most talented quarterback under the age of thirty five right now as Aaron Rodgers. And he sat from multiple seasons stirs something to that. He would not have been the same. I think GV Tom Brady sat for multiple. He'd be sat for William the mortar, the quarterback under age forty, two sat for multiple years, so I don't see Donald sitting multiple, you know, I think you're not gonna playoffs this year. Sit for six, seven weeks, learn professional. There are not guys. There are not enough practices to get good at being an NFL quarterback. That doesn't happen. Training camp is so watered down. Now that clerk Lyn NFL live on us. Going, I keys. You have to learn to say. And so I haven't seen you this animated since he got the two zero one opo thirty minutes. It was the most excited I've ever seen. Thank you. Okay. It's I've went so many titles and all my sports. All I have left are now. No, but there are no more today's. They're just not enough literally not enough hours in the day to play quarterback the NFL level counter. Yes. I four games of the jet schedule. Detroit at the trait Monday night, seven, ten pm home for the dolphins at Cleveland is the first three. And then you got Jacksonville week for at Jacksonville. Oh, you wanna go against the best defensive by don't, but I like those first three. If you were going to start him those first three or like kind of nice way. Strategy, actually let him play against bad teams and throw them account of the wolves whenever go. When I was in college that I covered jazz and seven dolphins and their whole thing was when was John Becca play? And they were waiting. They threw Cleal trend, green and try and green got concussed almost immediately was ended his career then throughout Cleo lemon. And the whole thing was what? What defense are going to start. John Becca turns out, did matter, turns out, John Belk sucked wasn't John Belk. Like a second round pick. He was guess who I saw yesterday Cowboys camp, John Belk, Elman. He's a private quarterback coach. Now you would you wanna learn from John Karr we all fantasy which one of those teams scares you at the trait home for Miami at Cleveland. I think Detroit's a little bit better than people think they are. So I'm not going to Keiser who's just at the Detroit, they always have talent. I think Matthew Stafford will one day inherit the earth from sort of upper generation of quarterbacks. I grew. I just don't think it's going to happen in twenty eighteen guys. It officially happened. I'm excited for football. I started thinking about them. NFO. Here that started it, but I started thinking about the Monday night jets at the trick at four o'clock, west coast time. I'm Ed. I mean, I'm always. The minute I saw Donald throw, one preseason touch out. I was like best sport around, can't believe back. It's yeah, at called Sean yesterday because I had to talk to him about a fairly urgent work thing. And he's like, Kennecott you back in an hour much in the jets. Okay, I get it. You've never had a. I was getting emotionally connected to my guy. Bill. Does Sam scare you at all gal that your dynasty is winding down or soon to be removed from the Tom Brady Bill bell, check era hopefully within the next ten years? Yes. Are you frayed of Sam? Yeah, we were just talking about it one of these years. The pets are gonna go six to ten, and somebody else going to take the vision. The biggest reason nobody is taking the division. Well, two reasons that three reasons, quarterbacks jets, dolphins bills. Yep..
