"So he was on second base, another Dodger was on first, a grandeur was hit to short. He wet the ball hit him, which, of course, ruled him out, but prevented the double play from being completed under the rules at that time, the ball was just dead the play was over. And so he broke up the double play by a sacrificing himself, now of course there is a rule that says that the umpire shall declare both the runner and the batter out in that situation. So you can no longer game your way out of a double play. So I was going to retroactively say that we should have drafted Jackie Robinson. However, I did further research about this rule change and it seems to have been prompted more imminently by others. I don't know whether Jackie pioneered this or whether he picked it up after other players did it, but there were other players who did it after him and it seems like if anyone deserves credit for actually spurring that rule change, it was perhaps Don hoke, the former major leaguer of roughly the same time. So in 1957, he was playing for the Cincinnati red legs and I will read from Wikipedia here in a game against the Milwaukee braves on April 21st, hook was involved in a controversial play that would lead to a change in the rules. He was on second base and teammate Gus bell was on first when Wally post hit a ground ball to short, hulk broke up a potential double play by fielding the ball himself and flipping it to Milwaukee shortstop, Johnny Logan. Hook was called out for interference, but post was given a single on the play. The day before, Johnny temple let bell's ground ball hit him with the same result, temple being called out for interference on bell being awarded a single. The two incidents prompted league presidents were in Giles and will herriage to jointly announce a rule change that declared both the runner and batter out if the runner intentionally interferes with a batted ball with no runners allowed to advance. Without the new rule it was sometimes advantageous for a runner to touch up added ball because doing so avoided a double play. So I don't know whether you want to give Jackie credit for doing it before those two did or give them credit for actually prompting this rule change more immediately. But as is often the case with these rule changes as we discussed, it's usually more than one player who is directly responsible for changing the rules. But that's something I learned about Jackie Robinson on Jackie Robinson day and then learned about that rule as well. Did you see Chris Bryant's comments about the service time manipulation roles in the new CBA? No, what did he say? He said he was disappointed that it wasn't named after him cause tiny got his rule. So Christian get his and I thought that was very funny. Fair enough, yeah. And then lastly, did a stop blast last week about hitters who had broken up the most no hitters and we talked about how, well, where do you set the line? Is breaking up a no hitter when you break it up in the first inning or does it require it being the 6th or the 7th or the 8th or the 9th or whatever. So we went through the number of players who had broken up the most no hitters after certain innings thresholds. But some of our listeners got even more curious about this and Patreon supporter Chris hanel proposed to frequent step blast consultant Ryan Nelson that they come up with this full no hitter subtracted probability model to do this more rigorously and comprehensively and find out just on the whole career wise who has subtracted the most no hitters are expected, no hitters and Ryan just went whole hog with this and I had nothing to do with this. I did not put him up to this. I just sat back and watched, but he came up with this whole thing where he went year by year and the probability of a hit and the probability of an out, given that run environment and then calculated the probability of the no hitter at every stage in the game. And he summed it all up and you get negatives if you are in a situation where you could break up a no hitter and you fail to and you get credit if you do break up the no hitter. Anyway, the upshot is that Joe mauer, who we noted, has broken up three no hitters in the 9th, which is tied for the most ever. He is on top with 1.408, no hitters subtracted or expected no hitter subtracted. So there are only four guys who have cumulatively subtracted more than one or at least one no hitter or expected no hitter now George Scott and Horace Clark, who we mentioned in that step last and then while he joiner and then there are some others we mentioned as well toward the top of that leaderboard like George Hendrick, but I will put that spreadsheet online because Ryan did a whole lot of work to do that. And if you're wondering who's on the bottom, it is Johnny Logan, former major leaguer Johnny Logan with negative .66, no hitters are expected no hitters subtracted, so he actually made no hitters more likely to happen. And that's because he came into a no hitter in the 7th inning or later 5 times. So he was up in the 7th with no outs in the 8th with no ads in the 8th with one out in the 9th with one out and then the 12th with one out and in those 5 at bats he had two pop ups and three ground outs, so those all tanked his stats. He had 15 plate appearances in the 5th and 6th innings of no hitters and he went one for 14 with a walk. So ripper Collins, the guy who professed that he was the all American louse for breaking up a lot of no hitters. He's 1079th on the list. So no, he does not really qualify as someone who did that. But Joe mauer deserves to be up there and if you have a no hitter going, then you really wanted Johnny Logan to be at the plate because he could help you out. So thanks for doing an enormous amount of math and sabermetrics there to give us this answer. Yeah, an incredible amount and admirable amount, perhaps an ill advised amount, but an amount we appreciate in a loss. All right, well, we have managed to get through my entire long rundown in outline here. I really needed it to keep everything straight. I'm going to need to come and go flow next time. I'm nervous. All right. We will stop there, although I see that as we were speaking, Ben clemons published yet another post about bases loaded intentional walks. And he calculated a different way in fact that it was still a bad idea..

"Que. You have now arrived at your destination and this is such a joy to do. Just checking. In as we said foley. Ba since all lost app said i wanted to do this for a long time but thank you so much joining me against a absolutely am excited though i do want to start. I love a good story. And so we're obviously focusing on nina lift and early zimrights journey. And so we're making bank. Paint the picture for me. How did you meet the team. Where's the meeting. Who is it. Wave provide that context. Yes so interestingly enough. Our best founders come through recommendations from our existing founders. The ramey met john and logan. Was that leah bosque. Who's the founder of task rabbit had been in the facebook incubator accelerator at the same time as john logan and in fact we have a picture where the johnny logan were helping leah put up her sign edge in this office and the result of that there were friends leah told me. Hey there's a couple of guys that you really ought to meet i had funded leah's my first check the year before in two thousand nine. Okay so you were introduced. Why did you have the first meeting. And was that like an unwelcome it. I find ultima meeting. He's that's a moment when you're like. Oh wow this is special was the meaning. Did you have that. Yes so johnny. Logan came into our office. Mike and i at the time we were subleasing space from another venture capital firm. It just if the picture. I'm just getting started in my venture capital career and i think i haven't even finished my phd. At the time. And i was largely pregnant. So i was due in. I think in april of that year and in our first meeting. I might pregnant. I have like this meeting on having and mike is. There was great about it was. We're also just starting off. What our career. I think probably. Jon morgan had gone up and down sandhill road and been rejected by a bunch of firms at that time and i also hungry to make investments. I don't have a name. I don't have a brand on. Which i'm sitting on and so i'm trying to hustle to find great folks to work with and so at this moment we cut together and i've been teaching all these classes with steve blank on customer development and here are two guys who walk into our office. There's a couple of things that were really drawn to one. Was they have this incredible story of why they're working on this so john Had joined logan on this journey on. Zimmerman and logan says he. Now i was in zimbabwe. I was really passionate about transportation and in zimbabwe all. These people can't afford to own a car so they share the ride. And i had been in zimbabwe back in two thousand six. And i remember seeing this. You'd see people piled into cars driving to different locations and so he was inspired by this but he'd been working transportation since the days in college. He was actually on the board of transportation authority in santa barbara where he had gone to college and then john at the same time. He joins journey because in college cornell. She had seen this class where this professor he talked about. How transportation changes the fabric of society in the united states. And you could go from canals to you know railways to highways actually how the physical infrastructure within a society changes because of the way transportation evolves. And we're at this moment where transportation is about to change because we have new software infrastructure with social networks. That might enable something new. And it's crazy to think at the time but like we haven't seen a transportation startup in fact we're looking at this business. We had to go and talk to the founder of zipcar to see what else is out there and literally. There was nothing really. No innovation had really happened since that period of zipcar in the transportation stays so really what we were interested in was this insight around a market. I totally agree advisable you mike for by insight development. I guess you said they're rocketed. Building on top of the new software layer social network. That idea that he changed. And it was actually mayfield. Your invitation when was it clear that change was made and needed to be made in the idea. I mean so. I think this is the secret to cede investing which is it wasn't clear for a number of years. We made our investment in two thousand ten and the actual sh- agent happen until two thousand twelve and so if you think a pivot in many people's minds just like a moment it's like the singular decision and it's like a lightning strikes. You know in reality. What happened with lift. Was that zimmerman. Through hundreds of iterations it starts off as a platform that sold to universities. Then it becomes a platform that all to universities and corporations at this realization of we don't have enough density of activity right if you stay within stanford campus fine within stanford campus. But you need to stitch together. How can you do that by stitching together. Facebook that was in palo alto in time and stanford kind of but you're never gonna get to the density that you need and then how do you make people more comfortable with paying for transportation. We looked at craigslist and people are trying out different longer routes. They're paying for being in a car with someone to go to lake. Tahoe or to la. So what is logan. do well the next week. he's rented a van and he's posted to craigslist that he's gonna drive down to la and here's the ceo of a company who's driving a van down to la with a bunch of people who've paid for spots in it just to see if that's going to be the secret to unlock more activity and so zimrights to lift was a process non moment. What did you learn about them in that process as you said there is a two year process with multiple iterations as you said that the driving to add a as it's been pretty unusual things. What did you learn about them as a team out process. There's an absolute commitment to customer fanatical desire for customer development. So a lot of people think customer development is like intellectual process and in fact it's hand-to-hand combat right. You're trying to uncover secrets that other people may not know and for them. It was real life experimentation right. The fact that john zimmer are when he was selling the platform to universities would go to a university campus dressed in a beaver suit to try to convince people to just engage with this plot for jason. Sounds for like it wasn't that they felt like someone else should do that work. They were always so committed to knowing what the customer desire was and how that translated into product for themselves and for each person who was in that organization really came alive all the time. I i love that. I didn't know about the bbc adamant. But i do have to ask as i always get worried day. I'm because in found have so much money so early that they need to the customer development process for a while they hired extensively beforehand just because of the proliferation of capital gina. Driving down to l. a. and vans and dressing. Bbc's we don't see that commitment as much anymore in my eyes. Do you share the same concern in that review in terms of the early money. That's now aloft. But i think that's what you look for now again. You're not always looking for the best idea because at the seed stage we often say we're not investing in a company because a startup isn't a company. It's a set of insights is development of a set of secrets that you have if you believe that whatever you're investing in the seed stage is stagnant than great. We should always just invest not best idea but in my mind i'm always investing in a set of people who are committed to process of uncovering secrets. And if you believe that then you wouldn't invest in the person who wasn't willing to own that can sorry this is convenient scheduling. What what questions do you ask to uncover the process. They go to those insights. What are the biggest questions that reveal the most in terms of that process. I mean like in the very first stages. I would love to have them even right up some of what they believe right so i love looking at the things that they will let go of the beliefs that even if the david came in unclear they wouldn't let go of. I like to look at what they believe in terms of their competition. Who is our competition. Why i like to understand what has happened. Historically that they believe it wasn't true in the past and is true now and so it's this abrogation of the idea as that. I think we concentrate so much. A building right and i think building processes and speed of development is really important but a second element that we also look for is the speed at which people develop their own insights..

"When he said to me Pretty say it. He's like you know. This is a big book. And i said yeah okay but it's not hard to write a really long shitty book is still gotta be good right so that was the that was a real challenge. One of flattering thing though to have met that man standards. Yeah i mean in. Henry was said i mean i walked up to one day. We're in cooperstown different occasion. I said to him.

Oh old buildings and whores become respectable if they stick around long enough. This is what we do. Brady if you stick around long enough all is forgiven and suddenly everything that like the world trade center is revered now. It was an ugly building in. Nobody wanted there when it was first. When when i went up he went. These towers are really ugly there an eyesore but now it's revered and so everybody now is talking about henry and how great henry is and how you know how henry was ahead of america and the whole thing and and even the guys who were like really rude to him like for example. There was this joe adcock in johnny logan. Were in the bathroom. One day there's adcock they're dropping n word after en worden you know. What are they want. You know any to be put in their place in the whole thing. And then they hear the toilet flush and henry walks out of the stall and adcock looks at him and logan looks at him and then they just keep on talking no apologies. Nothing they just.

And, you know, I remember being in the house say I gotta hang around the house for a while, because I'm not going out. I want to make sure CV hits the home run, and that's why the game was on national TV at that time, and otherwise you wouldn't see the Dodgers and Braves, but they got lucky that he hated that and that maybe the Tuesday or Wednesday or Thursday. They're worth. It wasn't ESPN back then? And Yeah, they had to put it put the game on and, you know, decided ahead of time and everything else. And so it was nice to see you. It was terrific and was like I said, It's one of those things. You always know where you were watching that if you're a sports fan, you know who you were watching with. We're watching it and what you're feeling at the time. There's no doubt 3123323776 out of old Town and George. Hello, George. What's happening? My friend. How gentlemen up? It's it's a pleasure to be with you The story of hammering Hank because I grew up in Milwaukee. My dad was died when I was five. But I end up meeting Hank Aaron. My Godfather. My brother's got father took me to a game. Remember the old team? You know, Warren spot on the map. Mound. Joe Torey behind the plate. What a team del Crandall, Johnny Logan. But any man was Eddie Mathews. Third. I mean, what an All star team, but You know, e wasn't a complete depression. I mean, if it wasn't for baseball, and maybe meeting such a great man, my dad was a great man. Two He ran the plant at General Motors that During World War two and we're one. I've made all the munitions for World War two and one and all of the different navigational bombing systems And he was just like Henry and find somebody to look up to. And it got me out of depression and Just made me think about how precious life is, and it is important to be good. But there's a lot of kids on the South side. You know that are going through a lot of hard times and I want to see you know, the White Sox show. No five year old six year olds T ball. I mean, that's what baseball is all about. It's a healing effect for the community and for Chicago. George appreciates call. It is, and I think the White Sox I mean if you get a chance Him. Anderson's a guy. You know the big story the other day, and he was out with Wildling Sylvie talking about. He's on the cover of R B I baseball this year, the video game that's coming out and the first time a White Sox players been on the cover. They had hobby bias was undercover. I think of the show the other game last year, and he's a guy decided. Listen, I'm buying in there giving me money. They're keeping me for a few years. I'm gonna live your long in Chicago. And he has done so many things and a lot of the guys in the White Sox and have done that the same thing And, um, you know, there's obviously been a big push over the last several years to get kids into it. But I think what needs to be done on the South side here is is a lot and be wonderful. It's Seymour. Kids and people do that. Just Getting a chance to meet some of these ballplayers and see that there You know, you may idolize, but a lot of times their normal people. They're nice, normal people. They're not, You know, Once you meet him, it's something you'll remember for a long time about how nice they are. And if they can ever rub off on some of the other people as we get older, they get older. They'll be wonderful thing. The other thing for it is that You know, we could do a whole show on. You know why kids don't like baseball, and Rob Manfred is gonna lean on field Epstein and try to figure out ways to make younger generations more involved or more apt to wanna Followed Major league baseball, You know, you know I summers where we just spent the entire day at the local park, right playing pickup baseball with, you know if he had Call your field of you never know to put enough guys on either side of legit game. Um, you know, we live for that right and Ciara's African American representation It's been written about and talked about. It's certainly not enough and It's It's shocking because growing up watching all the great African American players that you mentioned Billy Williams, Fergie Jenkins remember status sitting in the crowd and they're probably 100 of us after a game. Waiting to see the results for Can Griffey because Bill Mad locked was going to win the batting title, right, you know, and waiting for the sea. What was gonna happen? He did, and he came out of the dugout probably 45 minutes after the game had ended. And you know we saluted them, and I mean that that was just her from stuff. But baseball's got a lot of issues to try and only get young people following the game. But getting you know African American people in particular T want to pick up a bat and ball in play. I was. I know you tweeted this out or reacted to it on Twitter that Trey Young yesterday, talking about Honoring Hank Aaron and how they played for him and a young guy like that, who had met him and had the opportunity to meet him, But to be aware of it, and to understand that the shoulders that everyone stands on from the great people who come before us, right? Yep, There's no so that was that was terrific. That Not only he was aware, but he had the opportunity to meet Hank Aaron. And so he knew it wasn't just some figuring right about he actually met the man. So and the former, you know, here in Chicago, she worked here in Chicago, Kelly crawl. Now she's down in Atlanta, and she was the one doing the interview with him and before she even had a chance to mention Ain't garron. That was the first thing that Trey Young brought up after a nice game he had so on Ben. He went even further about how he had a chance to meet him and everything else like that, And it's nice to see players off that.

"You're listening to the best of WTMJ conversations. Welcome back to WTMJ conversations. I'm your host Jean Miller, My guest reporter and author Gary Tomorrow he's written nine books, his latest, a perfect childhood, growing up in the 19 sixties with baseball, the Beatles and Beaver Cleaver. And if you grew up in these parts with baseball chances are you were a fan of the Milwaukee Braves. Everybody loved and adored. Hank Aaron, Eddie Mathews, Johnny Logan. But then they left in 1965. And that left the mark something else that United us all back Then was sports still does today, obviously, But as kids, I mean, it wasn't just like something you did on a Saturday afternoon. The Milwaukee Braves were a passion or later on the Milwaukee Brewers, and I know you lived and died with the Braves. Did everyone in our neighborhood. All other boys played baseball. We just need a fan like games every day in the summer, where you know 10 or 12 or 14 kids would show up and we'd play, you know, for hours and so the brains where our heroes Think Erin Eddie Mathews weren't spying lucrative one time for a birthday party. I think it was frankly, What is Mom took us about six of us to a game and we sat in the right field the Sunday it used to be called before they built the right field extension that county stadium. Because you were you said the sun all day or thank you. Mom was r big hero and he played right field And so we were, you know, 100 ft. From animal or so when he came up to play his position in right field, and we for two or three or four n easy, we're yelling his name and yelling his name and he ignored us. Finally he tried it out. Maybe in the fourth and understanding we always name and he turned and looked at us and waved and boy Oh, boy you talk about, you know, indelible moments. I mean, you're right. I don't remember what I had for lunch history, but I closed my eyes. I can see Hank here and waving at us, and that beautiful Braves uniform on that green green grass and his smile just Old school sponsor. It really is. How dramatic was it for you and your family? When the Braves left? It was really traumatic was traumatic. I think for everybody who every Braves fan, in fact, my my dad. Years later, when the Brewers Ron, he say, the Braves went in today, or what time are brings on I mean he still calling the brains when they were the Brewers here for eight or 10 or 12 years. Yeah. I remember my dad being very angry, Um, saying that the bridge, you know, Solo Milwaukee to move to Atlanta. There was a lot of anger. That's what I think it was anger, mostly for people who understood. We're looking at the Older guys. We're looking at the financial aspect of it. But for kids, it was just crushing disappointment. Kids didn't care that Atlanta was a better market in TV right any better and all that kind of stuff. It's just like you took our heroes, and I can remember my dad just sitting on the couch cussing at the Braves because that move was years in the making, and he had called, he said. They're not going to stay and they're gonna be gone and he grudge. Watch him. He would just sit there and customer. Come on, Dad. That's our team. It's all we got. And you write to for years afterwards, there were fans who would not turn on a baseball game. That was one of the big things the early Brewers had to overcome. Was that anger it baseball in general, and that that feeling of being deserted by the Braves in particular? Yeah, You're right. Thank thank goodness for Bud Staley, bringing the pilot Seattle Palace to Milwaukee and 1970. Because I can't imagine being in a market all these.

Crunching the numbers twelve re appearances have ended in a win. Seventy four performers did better than their first performance. Twenty performer did the same. At one hundred, fifty did worse. Digging further into the trajectories performance. Took a returning winner dropping nine point seven positions on average. Even performers with an initial top five placement dropped average of nine places on returning to the contest. Overall. An Act that came back regardless of its initial placement dropped three places on average. Looking across the decades thirty-five percent be axed returned. Since two thousand ten has seen an increase placement in their most recent appearance. That's the highest rate of improvement since the seventies, but it's also the lowest amount of returning acts with only seventeen performers are group's making multiple appearances at the contest. So, what have we learned? Returning to the contest again, an either winning or even doing better than your first performance seems like a risky proposition at best. There's only one Johnny Logan for a reason. But it can be done successfully. Next year's crop overturning artists are in a hybrid situation though Schrodinger performance where we know who they are but having actually seen them compete yet. Should one of them win however adds another interesting historical footnote to the legacy of the talented eurovision performers who preceded them That's going to do it for this episode of the Year award.

"Washington by zebras. Even I'd slides even do I'd slide is live but I I my nearly died because it was so amazing. It is the covered end all covers of that song. I can't say I can't describe it in words how it made me feel their whole performance just like watching miscue so much just like so so news but that was a fantastic cover. Last cirque had some have really awesome. Cover two weeks ago. I think the latest Turks studio set up just like I want laser. I Want I want Surrey to to just do like a two hour. All your vision covers. Yes yes indeed show. I really hope that the home concerts concept is something that they hang onto even in non quarantine times. Yes yeah I could see that being a part of the Promo campaign. 'cause I would not be surprised if if things were running as scheduled this year I think dottie probably would have done a lot of the same stuff like he seems to enjoy working out of his studio so having that sort of fan engagement experience I think is bad brick great for everybody just thinking will not just the covers because the covers was a great idea even if we do get like thirty seven covers of Lena satellites for some reason. I thought that that was a great addition this year especially because we didn't have pre parties. It was a great way to feel much more connected to the artists. I was a great way to keep them engaged. Especially since we're not having a contest this year we are celebrating the songs and I think the connection that was made again. One reason that Belarus has shot up in so many people's rankings is because you see them making such an effort for something like the Eurasian home concert and it really endures you to them whereas you had Spain kind of participating where the guy was just a video of universal being performed but like they called it a special contribution probably because they were just like hey blah you want to do a cover. And I'm good by dislike. Did Not Return that voicemail. What happened to Imrie like he started performing Italy? Rollo and I was like I think you've bitten off more than you could chew. And that he totally knocked out of the park and I was like why was your live performance of. I'm alive not like this because if it had been you probably would have won the whole thing it. It blew my mind. He's been putting in a lot of work. I I still follow him and stuff but I don't know where going with that anyway. But he's still working on the craft and I'd be seeing some tweets during that performance second. Yeah he's been doing. A lot of local coaching are taking vocal lessons and works paying off good so I would love to see them figure out a way to do the covers portion next year with a little bit more variance out there like obviously there's a lot of planning involved and if you're picking the songs by Instagram poll you can't make voters not click you for you like. I love you for it but also heard enough covers of this year to last me until like twenty twenty four. Yeah like when we've gotten interesting choices of Song like K- no covering Atari. It's been great so it's like things things that are sort of outside the genre that outside the specific shade of Pop that yes an eerie covering hardrock. Yes exactly and I think the the other the recency bias also means that we lose some of the really amazing songs from Way Way Way Way way back like I would love to see somebody covered dancer vice or pooping song like there are some really fun ones. That artists could do a lot with. But we do get euphoria and heroes and Blah Blah Blah. If I if I don't hear another cover heroes in my lifetime. I will be happy with that. Yeah and it's been nice if they also been going into the back catalogue not just with songs but with artists the season finale which such way describing concerts but like the season finale episode. Where like they had like winners from the nineties and even earlier like. Oh It's I'm glad that they're still being invited to the family reunion. So yeah especially for Ireland's because they had such a run of dominance in Eurovision being able to remind people of that Research viewers may think. It's it's all just Sweden older Sweden but it. Sorry I'm a huge Johnny Logan Fan. So I I really just happen to be listening to Johnny Logan. He's very good. We because just thinking about how the song that they had asked fans to potentially contribute to. What's another year yes good? I'm glad that they're digging that one out because it's a very good one. They're just so many songs in the catalog that deal with pain and loss and grief and we've all been joking in the UK about Sorry storm and how. It's taken on a new resonance for many of us in the pandemic So when she performed it during her home concerts. You know we've been crying babies just because it means so much to us. I can't say the same Victor Krone storm so that was one of the best home concerts was when victor krone showed up in a lighthouse somewhere in like in a lighthouse works and all. I could think of was the movie. The lighthouse and I kept expecting voted. Walk in and yell at him and it didn't happen anyway or at least not that they showed. We're getting artists for twenty twenty one any other any anything on your wishlist for twenty twenty one. Now that we are sort of at the end of Normal Eurovision season twenty twenty or you bring Dadi back and Germany. Bring Bendik back. Yeah I I would like there to be more. We've selected the artists. Here's five songs for the National Final Type Finals. Sort of like what I think. Ukraine said. That's what they're doing with a and I have to think there are other processes that are gonna be using that sort of format as well so we know that. Lithuania has invited the Rupe back in some quality for their is I would love for them to have his deeply stacked of benches. They had this year where I'm rooting for like eight. Different things to win and somehow be allowed in yeah. Lithuania was such a blow up of a national final. Yes that is the appropriate. Describe it. Yeah I also think it's interesting that is just like now that we have this new ish process they now have this new element of. Oh well. There's the returning champion. Maybe other countries could consider having that be the process like this is like two years down the line where all right. The winter of twenty twenty one goes to Eurovision and they come back for twenty twenty two. It's like all right king with the mountain type setup like will Dhabi be able to take down on like that sort of thing and I would be interested in watching that okay as somebody who attended the Norwegian Melody Grand Prix Final in twenty eighteen where Alexander reback entered with. That's how write a song. I would be very much against this idea as an excellent counter example. Yeah I do think that is very fair and also looking at Melody Festival in when when you ren- and her powerful statements lost to Antoon Hagman. I I would hate to see upsets like that happening as well. Yeah I mean I guess like artists Egos would probably need to be consider Yeah I don't fully retract a fine if it were if it doesn't work for you don't do it also like if it doesn't work for the group that may also be even more evidence to the contrary so one thing. I would like to see in. Twenty twenty one is for Melody Festival into not send a solo male artist. This is going to be year. We finally got a woman after ages. And nope Yeah Yeah. Italy start paying attention to that also not doing great on that regard. Italy bring led back challenge and baby boo go just that we know that he's okay again. This is one of the joys of national final season that I try like. It's very hard for me to go into work on a Monday after people would be like. Oh what did you do every weekend? And I can't be like Bogo Hugo got and have it consumed me that entire week I was. I was fascinated by the drama. So this is why I love twitter. The twitter community to help me process these feelings. Let's see if it helps. I also cannot go into work and be like well over the weekend. I got real invested in in in an Italian song contest. And I'm very mad about doc- was such a great entry point because I could just send the video to people and be like this is great and they were like this is great. Where can I find more like welcome friends why I mean I appreciated Russell? Russell Crowe's a mentioned just like re tweets the fan just saying blogs on point. Thank you for joining us.

I was glad that I watched both Tuesday and Thursdays rundown of the actual songs. Because I didn't I did like. I thought that they were going to feature more in this. I wasn't sure what to expect going into Saturday's show. Yeah there was something that I've read About a month ago about how the show had to be different in a way So that insurance would get paid out from my understanding. They had to like there.

"Hello everybody happy while wherever you are on this glorious year revision we can came under your Eurovision Song contest fan you. I think you're even begin to it this year. Weren't you in in Rotterdam so? Have you been coping without the prospect of any sort of live dies than well getting Easter? Now Joel tennis being canceled Irvine being cancelled. Yeah I had tickets for the first time and it's law it was council but hopefully out next year and we had celebration on on the TV last night and had some Swedish food and some cocktails to kind of raise a bit of a glass to what what never happened. But but yeah I think I think you were watching us. Well Joe. You're right yes I was. I catch Lubbock came. I'm going to hold my hand up here. Johnny Logan he comes on the TV and have no idea who he is by turns out. He's he's pretty much the go of of the on contests Mariah a bit. Like the Federa of of your vision life. If you don't tennis you you at least know the name federal. Maybe Johnny Logan could could be a bit like that but yeah. I was quite surprised. You shouldn't you've never heard of him. He's one well three times twice as a singer songwriter. Say He is the kind of the winningest person in in your vision. I guess you could say but yeah maybe actually we can do a European podcast as well. But let's let's go to tennis because we're going to be looking at the Italian. Upn and top eight movements. The happened in rave the last few decades. And perhaps I should lead on this one job because I'm going start with a moment featuring the man himself rapper. One of surprise well yes and listeners. And said he'd rougher bear with us because we all see you're not the end of the alternative Casey's season I mean let's be honest because light Madrid. Rome is Dallas. Hi I think he's one like what nine titles zero something ludicrously say is as as hardly a surprise to kind of see him featured this list say yes came. More is was the first moment. We're WE'RE GONNA be reliving. Well I thought we have liquor two thousand five. Which was you know I play horses and really where he takes. The kind of took it by storm. He won the first time. Yeah his first of nine titles. I think back in five and so he came up against Korea. Who at the time I guess was probably the most to stop ish claycourter of over air or at least one of them very face competitor for sure but the final was another five-set Masters Final five-set thriller? It was over five hours long. Which if you think about now if they were doing that consistently Austin Final Monte Carlo Madrid. That would just be insane. I mean I actually am believe that they used to do this to be called with the but yeah it was. It was a real ding. Dong to one of the better word. Joe Six four three six six three full six and then rougher one at seven six on a law set tiebreak but think about this much. Rougher was a double breakdown and fifth say. Who's three lockdown Sakaria? Really could've gone on us up momentum going away and one but I think really is kind of weakest point throughout his whole career was was his mental strength and he kind of collapsed that combined with with. Rafa you know. Obviously he's attitude his diehard shoot. Never giving up. He was on like a sixteen match winning streak at this point and say obviously he. He had a lot of belief in his game. And but I think Korea would be very devastated after this loss at I think. Actually in his post-match she interceded say this was one of the hardest defeats of his career. I think it was interesting to is. I think Korea probably getting into this matching gains clay season. Yeah he's probably thinking. I'm beatable on clay call. There is no one else out there better than me and who comes along on the Dow eighteen year old teenage eh relatively unheard of and I think this match proved that even when Korea was playing his absolutely best tennis possible. That was someone else out there better than him and I think he was kind of disheartened by that and I think this much great show us. You said mentally he you know he wasn't as strong as some of his other competitors or I think when you're three love up Double in the fifth set us really should be closing that match out and he wasn't able to do that. I think that's one of the things we might associate with a player who you know as brilliant as he is in Korea kind of on the mental side of things. I don't think you could put him up there with the greats and I kind of look at this match. I look at the two thousand four French Open final as well where he Gaston Gaudio. In the final game was five sets but again crucially he was two sets up. He was six love. Six three up was unable to close out the the match. And you know he's probably one of these as you put in the category of greatest players never have one. Ud wonder if if he hit if he had won if he had won this final in in Rome beaten Dow that would have given him the confidence indicate and reinforce that belief that he was and he was at the time the best the best clay court player in the world. I think obviously that loss against scout and then going into this match against Rafeh just his. His mental side of things just wasn't subscription. A Rafeh had beaten him in the Monte Carlo. Final just a couple of weeks before this so again he knew he was up against and he kind of let it. Let it slip away to be honest with you and Yeah so I just thought you know. Obviously this was this was a great match and it was symbolic because again you have this is like the birth of of Raffarin. His kind of play. Call dominance in this. Totally kind of pulsing off of his. You know the best steak or two at the time we had people like Carlos Moya one Ferrara Cowdrey. Kara in a sort of all very good establish trae which just as soon as Raff kind of started working his magic. He'd I guess it kind of became almost impossible. Perhaps to argue against for being the best. Geico

I think we're at about sixteen percent share in the US thirty nine percent today. So just amazing really really thrilling thing. Just a competitor era. Fierce competitor, in some cases, they resorted to illegal just highly illegal tactics competition, Johnny Logan. I just spoke to that. They say they don't think about the competition.
