"They understand they're playing a game and the results don't really matter. They're a baseball club when you look at it that way, maybe they're the best run team in the league. Everyone else is unhappy most of the time. And maybe that would support the idea of, hey, Joan T, we like jonesy, everyone likes jonesy. Let's promote jonesy. I mean, that does seem to be a big factor in their decision making, which again, like loyalty to your people, can be a good thing at times, and maybe this is too cutthroat in competitive a business. Maybe we should all be a bit more laid back like the rockies and just try to have fun out there. Joe wrote, I don't know if I completely buy into this, but the idea 1° removed that the rockies simply value some things more than winning games makes sense to me. I can make a similar argument about the royals. I don't think it is an appropriate way to run a baseball team, but as a thesis for why the rockies do the things they do, it makes more sense than trying to explain them, using, you know, baseball analysis. I get the instinct to look to this. And I think that I wouldn't be surprised if there were other stated organizational principles and goals besides winning. But like, here's the thing. When Chris Bryant was pitched on being a rocky. A lot of it was the money, but I bet they told him we think you can help us win a World Series here. Right. You know, like I understand, but I think that sometimes and because we are so enamored with win Z ourselves. Maybe we are sometimes guilty of this. So I know I'm the pot calling the kettle black here, but like I think Connor Joe wants a World Series ring, right? Like I think Charlie Blackmon wants a World Series ring. I'm just picking guys. I'm like, hey, look at all of the rockies players I know, you know? Right. To Nelson lumet wants the World Series. Right, I think they, you know, I think Herman Marquez wants a World Series ring. So I think it is good to remind highly competitive people that there are a lot of things in life that are worthwhile beyond simply winning. But also, I think most baseball players, at least most professional baseball players and certainly most major leaguers are highly competitive people to the point that they could all be encouraged to chill out a little bit. I just don't know that the rockies have optimized the way to do that. And I think that losing relentlessly and getting made fun of on podcasts, I don't think that people enjoy that, you know. I think that they are like, hey, that feels bad. So, you know, there's a balance to be struck here. Like you want to, you want to feel like you have a rudder. You know? Yeah, right. And when rocky's ownership makes public comments about their competitive prospects, they don't say eh, you know? Yeah. We know we're not going to win, but we're all having a great time. Yeah, you wouldn't sub you lose some. Yeah, we're not saying that. They're saying other stuff, which is part of the problem. We will win, we think we are good. Right. Yeah. Joe points out in that newsletter that rocky's batters have the second highest ground ball rate of any team just slightly behind the cubs, which seems not ideal in course field. Now the pitching staff does get some grounders, but you'd think you would maybe want some hitters who hit the ball in the air in course field. So maybe that can be an action item on the new R&D directors to do list, but hopefully we'll leave the rockies alone for a little while. If you're still with us, but I'm sure many of you are just as aggrieved frankly. So you don't mind commiserating. This is cathartic for you. I hope. I really can't say enough nice things about how pretty that ballpark is. And at some point, I imagine you will actually get to enjoy watching Chris Bryant play baseball. Oh wait, I ended on a bad day. It's a beautiful ballpark, and I feel like when I have been there and sort of normal competitive settings, right? So like not during the futures game or what have you. They do a good job of having a bunch of different price points there so you can take your family to Iraqis game and get like a hot dog and a soda and not bankrupt yourself. So, you know, they do do some things right. Yeah. A lot of those just don't happen to be baseball at this particular moment, but remember when the rockies were really good for a little while, that was wild. It was fun. Yeah. Yeah, and it wasn't that long ago. No. You know? And rocky's fans, they support that team. I mean, I guess arguably if they all just had a mess exodus from the ballpark when the Iraqis were losing, perhaps they would put even more pressure on the rockies to get good, but you could say I'm in their some fan bases that, you know, they're fair-weather fans, I guess you could say, but understandably so, when, you know, like Oakland, right? I mean, when they're not putting a competitive product on the field and they're doing everything they can to alienate the fans, the fans don't show up. Understandably. Why should they? Rocky's fence? Maybe because it's just that the ballpark is so nice. The attendance is pretty decent even when the team is not. Yeah. Well, and it's like right there in downtown Denver. So, you know, that helps you get some spillover on your guests, but yeah, you know, I don't know. We don't want to make anyone feel bad. We hope everybody has a baseball team that puts a good product on the field because that can be very fun. We hope everyone gets to enjoy that someday. All right, looks to me. We could pass layers just ran the numbers for me. Lucas from baseball perspective using the pitch info tags. Looks like the only faster sliders they have on record than to grums 95.6, according to pitch info in that Sunday game, they have coded Glover throwing some faster ones, Manuel classe, Matt bush, just traded to the brewers. Noah's cinder guard. They are the only pitchers who have been clocked in the pitch tracking era with faster sliders.

"That was announced yesterday. With a cinematic trailer and holding back gameplay until just a really, really short glimpse at a very end is aliens, dark descent. New aliens game. Cinematic trailer and then the gameplay is like isometric top down squad based. And it was a little bit confused. Everyone was a little bit confused as to what it was. Immediately after real. I found the games official website and the Tina found its steam page. And it's actually more information there. So we actually have a clear idea of what it is. Yeah. But again, it's a situation where I think Justin was saying, a top down sort of it's almost looks like a twin stick shooter, even though I don't think it is. Maybe people might be less excited for that than if they think they're getting a new first person shooter aliens game, right? Anyway, the developer is $10 interactive, which is a French developer. I'm not familiar with. They have made a few games that I had never heard of. But I do think $10 interactive sounds a lot like the weyland yutani corporation from the aliens. That's how they got the gig. So the official description is an alien's dark descent, command a squad of hardened colonial marines to stop a terrifying xenomorph outbreak on moon leath. Lead your soldiers in real time combat against iconic xenomorphs, rogue operatives from the insatiable weyland yutani corporation and a host of horrifying creatures new to the alien franchise. And that last sentence gives me pause. Yeah. What? What is it going to be? You can't have, you can't just have him shoot an alien. Xenomorphs the whole time. In this world. It's fine. There's just the aliens. And I admit the prequels. The prequels have kind of after everything up. In the original alien, it takes place in the year 21 22, all that all that far in the future, they had never discovered another alien creature until they discovered the alien. And now in this game, there's just such a Grinch event. It's a shooting game. Like if something's moving over there, you just shoot it. And then it explodes in a pile of goo. And it doesn't matter. That's true. And I think there's another part of the description where they're saying that actually whatever your commands, because you can command your squad, obviously. And there's 5 different character classes and a leveling up system. So you're adapting what your strategy in your gameplay is and what you actually have accessible to you. And then apparently the enemies will catch on to your antics. So if you use the same strategy, they'll eventually start to circumvent it and account for it. So maybe that's why they wanted to throw in a couple of other enemies so that it's like adds an interesting strategic dynamic of maybe it's like flying. I guess I can crawl on anything so that doesn't really make much of a difference, but it have to be a different kind of combat tactic there. Apparently there's perma death and you can customize your squad and then develop your base to research new tech and improve your squad. Cool. So that sounds cool. And not just permadeath, but yeah, not just permanent, but there's a persistent world. So you can some of the strategy in each levels you can find shortcuts. You can create safe zones and then motion trackers that impact the level permanently. So anytime you're unlocking these things or creating these new openings or setting up traps or whatever, that'll change the way that that level inherently permanently works. So that stuff is interesting sounding. And then also it says carefully manage your soldier's health resources and sanity. To avoid mental breakdowns. I didn't read about the darkest and darkest dungeon in there too. So journal darkness too. So that sounds cool. I'll keep it open mind. That one's coming 2023. I don't know, Sam, what do you think of aliens, dark descent? Let me just say that I don't think I played a lot of good aliens games, but the alien pinball machine that just came out is so good. Cool. You should seek it out and play it. It is awesome. It's like a Williams era widebody size game, so it's wide. And it has the best looking. You can select alien or aliens, and you play games with their modes are based on that. And so they have one called fine jonesy, where it shows you several paths, and it shows the cat, the cat is jonesy. Let me just get that out of the way. Yes. It shows you jonesy's hiding in these places. But then all the lights go off. And so you have to remember where jonesy was and tried to shoot that ramp, right? Or that passage or that loop or whatever. And then the lights will come on and you'll see jonesy again for a second, but no, jonzi moved over here. You got to find jonesy. And if you don't find Joe, it's really sad. Because jonesy survives that, Judd jonesy is a survivor. Well, yeah, for however. Until the aliens. Only three. No, no, no. Aliens, she survives because she gets left behind at the beginning of aliens. Ripley doesn't take jonesy too back to the oh, really? Yeah. I thought jonesy was in the little pat carrying case. Not in aliens. Only an alien. An alien, yeah, yeah. Okay, so jonesy gets to live out her life. Apparently she gets adopted adopted by someone back on earth. Oh, that's a great ending. Okay. Yeah. Okay, well, no, yeah, this game like, I don't know, I'll give any alien game a try. I love the universe, and I think it's very easy to ruin. Oh yeah. I mean, everybody in the comments on our announcement when we wrote up the announcement was like, why didn't you just make alien isolation too? Is that not what we want? And it was such a powerful entry in the series, and obviously there's been many other missteps in the aliens history. But I don't know, it's so much more interesting now that I've actually read up on it and it seems more strategic than I was expecting based off of the three second gameplay we got. There are many more mistakes. In the alien franchise, may more missteps than there are hits. Across movies and video games. And yet we still love it. Oh, yeah. Yeah, great. I mean, I think it's just the best design and the coolest. I mean, alien and aliens are two polar ends of horror. And I.

"They're asking a lot of us to get in and out of it. So take us through game one here, jonesy. 14 goals total, including the empty netter. You know, as The Rain I talked about earlier in the podcast, I found myself, and I'm not this season Wiley old hockey guy, but I found myself at one point in the third period going, okay, this isn't playoff hockey. Like, what are we doing here? But from an American broadcast perspective on TNT, I mean, are you just loving it? 14 goals, lack of defense, four goalies in and out. All the shenanigans of that night? Yeah, it was a really crazy game. And you know, I think we're used to playoff hockey and tight checking, especially when you get to the Conference Finals. So it was a little bit surprising from that regard, but when you look at the two teams, that's how they're built. They're built to go. The game never seemed safe, even when it was 7 four is still felt like or 7 three is still felt like Edmonton would have a chance to come back. They never looked panicked on the bench. They never looked tired, which was surprising to me with the altitude, but I guess maybe playing against Calgary in the previous round gave them some benefit with the altitude there as well. But no, for an American audience, it's great. Fans want goals. They want to see the star players the star players all picked up points in the game confidence is not going to be an issue. The storylines aren't going to be about lack of production by any other particular stars that are being featured, including McDavid and McKinnon. So all of those pressures that can mount during a season are series have already been alleviated. So I think it's going to mean more goals. I think it's going to be more crazy games and the goaltender's aren't going to be feeling very confident by the end of this series. Jonesy, I wondered, I mentioned to Drake's earlier and I wonder if you felt it because you're standing right there. You remember when you played those games and there's almost like a tidal wave of something, either a lot of turnovers or a lot of goals or in the day, a lot of fights or whatever. There's like this tidal wave that goes through the game and you can't stop. The coaches are trying. You had the players and it just doesn't stop. Is that what it felt like at all? Yeah, that's a great that's a great way to look at it. There was waves of momentum that shifted in the game throughout and both teams capitalized on that. And I will say there was a lot more urgency from Colorado and period number three as far as defending went. Jared bedner was pretty animated behind the bench and pushing his guys, you know, stay with it, recognize that you're going to give up chances against this Euler's team. And when they're down, they're going to really go for it. So I got Colorado, you know, they bent. They ended ultimately didn't break, but there's going to be moments in this series both ways that offensively they're going to be challenged. And they're going to have to find ways to manage those moments and find a way to keep pushing their game the other way because this is not going to be about defense. It's going to.

"Becoming a fugitive again, we can part ways right now. Dillinger's face flushed red, and argyle felt the energy between them chill a bit. But he didn't drop his gaze. He wasn't afraid. But he wanted to avoid making a scene. In any sort of wavering on his part, would do just that. After a moment, dillinger relaxed. Look, I only ever wanted enough money to live comfortably. And have no worries. That's stuff in the papers about me being some big criminal mastermind is theater to sell more papers. Argyle didn't think that was all dillinger was. He knew the man's long and violent history, but he didn't interrupt. First time I went to prison was for stealing 50 bucks from a grocery store, so I could eat, 'cause no one would hire me. I was sentenced to 15 years and did I stuff I'd done after that? Robin banks? I learned it all inside. That's where all crooks learn the tricks of the tree. I was the meanest son of a bitch you ever walked out of a cell because I was so angry with the world. But I wasn't ever greedy, like Capone, bugs, Moran. I had a few wild oats. And I sewed them. Did some bad things? Sure. But it got way out of hand. I just won out of the spotlight. Like you. Argyle, listened for the cadences of a prepared speech. And heard none. It proved nothing, of course. Dillinger was good at acting on his feet. Meanwhile, the crowd behind them was cheering over a disappearing bird trick. Even Anna sage was clapping. Argyle then noticed godrich hearthstone looking at dillinger with speculation in his roomy eyes. And maybe that was good because argyle had an idea. He waved the man down. Dillinger, glanced over at the doddering wizard with the patchy white beard heading toward them. Who the hell is he? And old friend. That was an exaggeration. Say hello to John Dillinger. Held out his hand. How do you do mister dillinger? Or should I say Jimmy Lawrence? He tipped dillinger a knowing wink. Dillinger's face turned stormy, and he started to reach into his pocket where undoubtedly he was storing a piece. I don't like surprises. You should know that. The robber was heating up and argyle rushed to put out the fire before bullets started flying. Calm down, John. He's a good fella likely he was just eavesdropping, a simple enough charm isn't that right God drink. The other wizard flushed a Deep Purple. My apologies folks seemed much for conversation in this place, at least with the likes of me. I heard most of it naturally enough, though, always had good ears. So I did. Dillinger relaxed. A little. Look. Times wasting. Manhattan melodrama ain't gonna last forever. Can you help me or not? Argyle was about to ask godric if he knew of any helpful decoy spells with the other wizard put his hand on dillinger's shoulder and muttered something under his breath. Argyle blanked, and suddenly he was looking at two dillinger's. Identical, right down to the mustache. Clothing, and the bad surgery scars. Panic, argyle glanced around the room. No one else was paying the many mind. Except jonesy. Behind the bar, whose mouth was hanging open like a trapdoor. Everyone else was enwrapped with the man on stage throwing enchanted blades of light at a half naked woman. Dillinger touched his own wonder filled face and then godrich. It's like a carbon copy. It's better than that. Godric said. I'm you right down to the fingerprints and the blood in my veins. Argyle was still in shock. In all his years, he had never seen such a wondrous display of talent. And how in the world did you manage that contract? It's a not. I've been worried that for a while. He said. Even his voice was a perfect match for dillinger's. Didn't know it would actually work till I tried it though. Glad it did. Dillinger laughed. For your sake. I'm glad it did, too. Well, it's not like I ain't gonna die in a few minutes, right? This calls for celebration. Godric raised his hand to jonesy. Around of your best whisky for the three of us. The bartender almost needed to be told twice, but he eventually got moving. His hand shook a little as he poured, but like a true professional, he didn't spill a drop. A cloak of unease fell over argyle's heart. Why was godrich offering himself up so easily? The old wizard had obviously been in his cups for quite some time, and he had few prospects. The only thing keeping him in coin was performing the occasional magic show for the daytime crowd. But there wasn't a whole lot of action, or pay, and he was usually drunk by sundown. But was this really how godric wanted to go down as a Patsy for a gangster? The whole thing was tragic, but argyle seemed to be the only one troubled by any of it. As the two identical men beside him clean glasses, guzzled down their drinks like a couple of sailors on liberty. Dillinger slammed down his last. I feel like I should be paying you. Instead of our guy here, but I guess you're not gonna have much use for money with you're going. He reached into his jacket pocket and pulled out an envelope fat with money. You got a relative or something I got out here can send half of this too? Shook his head. No need. You're the one doing me the favor, mister dillinger. Believe me, I've been waiting years for an opportunity like this. If you say so, dillinger said. He handed argyle the envelope. There's two grand in there. Don't spend it all in one place. That was more money than argyle had ever received for a job. Combined with what he had saved up. It was enough to get him passage out of the country and have his bonds removed, with enough left over to avoid work for a couple of years. But not even this sudden windfall could set his heart right on this it was ironic he should feel this way, given how much wrong he'd been party to throughout his life, especially in the last 5 years or so. But this crossed a threshold. And was he relieved to find he still had a bit of moral center left? Perhaps. We don't have to do it like this. You've had a rough couple years, but you'll die out there. Those agents will look for any reason in the world to shoot to kill. You know that, right? Dillinger cut in. Hey. The deal is done here. It's a little late and frankly offensive to an egg after the money's been handed over. The old man made his choice. Argyle slapped the envelope bag down on the bar in front of dillinger. Keep it. I'm not going to take hush money while you let some old drunk kill himself for you. This is insanity. Grabbed argyle's wrist. He looked weak with his grip. It was like hot iron. Look at me, argyle pin dragon. Look me right in the eyes. Reluctantly, you obeyed. There was more power in them than argyle had felt from any wizard in centuries. Let alone since the ban on their kind was put into place. And he understood now that something far above him was at work. Stay out of this, said those doppelganger dillinger eyes. This doesn't concern you. I'm not as crazy as you think, our guy. I'm older than you. And I know what I'm doing. Regardless of my reasons, the decision is mine to make. Not yours. Got it? He held gadgets defiant and decidedly sober, gaze for a minute before he finally relented. The elder wizard was right. It was a poor display of ego on argyle's part to assume someone else's destiny. After a thousand years of life, it was a lesson that demanded relearning. I beg for your pardon. I let my emotions cloud my respect can you forgive the presumptions of an old fool? Godric released his grip and sat back. Of course. Don't be too hard on yourself. He looked at dillinger. I suppose this is goodbye. Joy, your new life. Jimmy Lawrence. The twin gangsters shook hands. And you, John.

"I out here? So lindros and lindros is thinking I'm not fighting Barbie. I'm not fighting me. I'm gonna fight this stiff. And I end up having to fight him. He hits me with like 18 rights in a row. And then at the last second, I kind of pop out this little left and the line's been kind of tripped him, and he falls down and I skated off right. And my arms in the air at the spectrum. Like I was the best man. I lost. My head hurt and everything, but I got one in. Booyah. Oh, yes. You know, it was great. That was my and then David poyle after the game told me he said, hey, maybe you should leave your gloves on. And I'm like, yeah, I will. I'd be happy to do that. I appreciate it. Thanks for the thanks for the support. Did you ever talk to lindros or driven opinion on if it was nowadays, maybe he wouldn't have come back then? Did he possibly come back a little early? I'm sure if you're seeing a few at that time, right? And I'm sure if you're him and if you're looking at the run we were on, you don't want to miss that. I know. I know, that's exactly right. And the whole playoffs have been out and they're that close to get the same. And you skate with you guys, obviously. He's probably feeling okay, but yeah, in retrospect it was probably too soon. Did you know that 22 of you a 117 goals were game one is almost 20% of your goals with game one is. Yeah, that's fluky though. I mean, some of them are probably made the game. I'll tell you my best game winning goal story. I plan for the avalanche Patrick was return to Montreal. Big night, right? So this is when you could put money on the board. It didn't go up against the cap. There's $30,000 on the board. 25,000 from Patrick Mike Keane at a couple grand, the GM had a couple grand. It was like 30 grand. And when I was in Washington, you score the game when a goal that's your cash, right? So I'm excited. So I get on the ice and I tip a goal and I made the score. I want to say it made it three to one at the time. We extend the lead now we're up 5 one and there's like 8 minutes left, Montreal scores. Now it's 5 two, right? I'm sitting on it. I got the game winner, right? If it ends, so I've never blocked more shots in my life. I was diving. I would have bit the puck with my mouth. If I had to. You think you're getting the whole third K? Yeah, I'm fine. So I'm like, this is awesome, man. So buzzer goes, game over. So I'm the first one in the room. I'm up there taking the money off. They go, what are you doing? I go, game winning goal, boys, you know, no it's not. What do you mean, they go? No, this is a team fund. We share it with the team fund. I'm like, that's not how we did it. And Washington, you know, that's how we do it here. So I lost out of that. The next night was my return to Washington. It was like you're signing more. So you don't spend between periods and spend time with my mind. I'm like, yes, I'm going to speed off. So the next night is my return to Washington. My first game back, right? Back to back games, so I put a dollar on the board. There you go, boys, you can fight over it after that. At that team party. Oh yeah. We lost. There were so everyone so fired up for Patrick. My first night back in 19 the good surprise on patty. I'm like, thanks for the help. That is such a good way to end this thing. You gotta get going. You gotta be serious. We'll have to get I think that we can just do this again. Just catch up more. Absolutely tremendous Jones. We can't thank you enough for having us here. It was nice to change up boys. The video and everything. And awesome interview everyone's gonna enjoy it and thank you for the hospitality. Thank you guys. Keep up the great work, man. We will do same to you. Wow man, absolutely the biggest thanks to Jones and his wife of the hospitality of that day and absolutely tremendous interview and also big thanks to the album organic showing up to show a little chicklets love a guy. We used to watch in the douche. Years ago was great to finally meet him. Never realized he was a Boston area guy, so I mean, Jones, just an absolute all time at the UK. I think that's so good. Easily amount Rushmore after the feedback for sure. That was, guys, I'm not gonna lie. I was in rough shape. I got buckled at jonesy and I actually hit it with RA outside. That was so much fun sitting and sitting down in the center of that guy. I was actually able to read about half his book. That's as much as I could get in in the short time. I had to read it. 6 years. But buchar gross talked about it when he was on the podcast and he wrote it folks and give it a read. It is fucking hilarious, just like him. Some of these stories, the fact that he could get away with it was fucking remarkable. It is amazing..

"Now I'm going wild the head spinning, right? And I'm like, is that close enough for you? And he comes over to me and he goes, you know, you're in April. Yeah. I said, but, you know, you're showing his guy, you know, like it's just I said some really bad things. I wish I could take you in personal. I just went nuts about it and showing he was a fitness not coach and he'd always do his push ups. He was in way better condition than I was. And they do sit up, so I told Keith, I said, why don't you go and help show me? I think he just finished his sit ups. You can help lift him up off the ground, you know? So that's really terrible things to say. So we're going back and forth and now I lose it and I go, why don't you get off the F and ice all skate the guys? And he left. And he went off the ice. And now I'm looking around. I'm going all right, now what? I know I'm in a lot of trouble. I don't think he was going to leave. Yeah, he left. So I started skating the guys. So all of us are doing the suicide notes, the blue line back, red line by blue line back, and I've never hustled and worked so hard in my life. So it ends, and I know I'm in trouble, right? So come off the ice and Todd button was the assistant coach at that time with shorty and Todd's waiting for me. He goes, hey, show me he wants to see a type like really? That's a surprising to me. So I have my shirt off, got my hockey pants on still on my equipment. My gut's hanging out over my pants. And I walk into his office and he's like, did you say that I'm such and such? Like some of the things I said you would never say to a boss and I know and you should never. So I said, yeah, that's correct. And so then he started going over how you get to the point where you're a healthy scratch and he's explained it to me. Here's what we rated you the last game two out of 5 key fed two out of 5. Todd hedge a two out of 5. I could hold on here. All three of you guys came up with the exact same number. I can't believe that these two guys have the same number as you have. You know what I'm saying? So I'm not done yet. I should have just shut up, right? So he's like, get the hell out of my office and I left his office. It turned into a long few days. I can tell you that. But how many games ended up getting scratched? Just the one. Okay. Just the one. And to be honest with you, the story gets a little bit longer, but we lost the next game in Boston. And now we're in New Jersey and we're staying at the embassy suites. So you can see everybody. Everybody's room, you know, you can see where everyone's at. We've been now we're losing. So he's like, nobody leave their room until you meet with us in the conference room. And then you can go do whatever you want to do in the day we're not practicing. We had a whole day off. So I'm like, okay, so I sat in my room. From 8 a.m. to 11 o'clock at night. So every player went in and this is hanging over my head because I'd had this outburst, right? So I get a call from Joe Juno. He says, hey, Sony asked me who I wanted to play with and I told him I want to play with jonesy. So two hours later, I got Michael pav calls me. Joni asked me who I wanted to play with. I told him I want to play with jonesy. Another two hours Dale hunter calls me, hey, Sean he asked me, I told him I want to play with jonesy. Because I had told him I want to be traded and I just said this crazy outburst. So at 11 o'clock at night, I get the call to come down to this conference room and show me an intimidating man. He's right across from any looks at me and he goes, you still want to be traded. And I said, you know, I did. But since all the guys called me and said they want to play with me right decided I'm gonna stay. So you've now tripled down. This is it. I just can't stop myself, right? So he looks at me. He looks really at the 5th head, fist, you know? He wasn't a handshake. He gave you a little fist thing. The hairy knockout. He was a German. He was way ahead of his time. He was a German germaphobe. That's why I did it. Yeah, yeah. So he gave me that and I give him this one. Yeah, you're bowing. Yeah. So I walked out of the room, I gave Keith Elena wink on the way out of the room. Back in the lineup. True story. Is that the craziest thing? And I was making at that time 300 grand a year. I thought I was rich. Like I thought I had a great money, but I thought this is like I'm set for life. This is what I was thinking. I was so brain dead. Now we know why shiny went after co host so hot. He was a fitness, not about the donuts. They can actually happen on the donut. So did it get awkward? Jonesy, the play had to play Jones at the agent. The agent handled it a lot better than the player. That's for sure. The agent chuck, he chucked the briefcase and that was it. But you mentioned in that story, branford Ontario. So I guess the most second most famous hockey player ever from Bradford. There's about 9 more ahead of me. Man, I've been looking at that list. I told Gretzky. I told I said, hey, we're the highest scoring duo in the history of the NHL from the same town. And then I looked it up, there's like 9 guys from branford ahead of me. So I need to claim that. Chris gratins from there. Oh no way. Doug Jarvis is from there. The Iron Man, it's incredible the number of records are held from guys from brantford, right? Small town, right? There's 77,000 people. I would say that I was probably the least likeliest to find my way to the NHL I played junior C hockey. I read your I read at least the beginning of your book. It takes me a while. You're the forward business. He fell asleep. I got the Cole's notes, but yeah, like you were never super hyper focused on it where you would take your summers completely off. You enjoyed just being around the guys, especially during your junior C days. You guys are playing 30 games this season. Yeah. So you'd be done by the end of March and you would take from them to training camp completely off what was the title of that chapter, beers and chicken wings? I haven't read it. I don't recommend anyone reads it. Well, it was a great 5 reading level, so I figured it was right up my alley. It is. It is, yeah, so I was yeah, I played hockey because I love playing hockey. And I didn't do anything else. I never thought of the show. Never, I was playing junior C hockey. I was 17 years old and 18 years old. I went back. You know, I tried out for junior junior B on a team that rob Blake played for in my hometown called the branford classics. And I thought I'd make the team. You know, I was a good hockey player through midget. I was good. I wasn't great. I was smaller, 'cause I hadn't grown yet. I was a late bloomer. But I just thought I'd make the team and they cut me. And I was like, oh, now what do you do? And then I got a letter in the mail junior C hockey in Paris Ontario. It's like 15 minutes outside of branford. I'm like, well, I guess I'll try out there and see what happens. So I tried out for the team, barely made the team, and then all of a sudden started the.

Sort of like, but I love the way that the musical director guy at the Kennedy Center, how they planned the arrangements, so beautifully because it starts out one instrument, and it grows, and then it grew to a small enzyme called singers. Then it grew to another small ensemble of strings. And then it grew to a larger ensemble of orchestra and brass, and another larger ensemble of choir. Then the bowler hat at the end of it was just like, that was the whole clincher. And the fact that Jason Bonham was drums, the son of their original drummer John, he tipped his bowler to them up in the balcony. All of that is why they were emotional.

"This comes from Adele anchors at IGN, a report from the information claims that discussions have already taken place over the prospect of a Fortnite film adaptation. Those talks have also reportedly formed part of a broader conversation at epic about the possibility of launching an entertainment division focused on scripted video programming as a way to diversify the studios brands. Epic is now seemingly in search of new ways to grow its library of game franchises as more and more gaming studios turned to filmmaking in a bid to boost revenues. The report notes that three former LucasFilm employees have joined Epic Games this year, including epic's new president of special projects, Jason McGowan. He previously served as the vice president of physical production at LucasFilm, I was executive producer of all the Star Wars films released by Disney. In recent years, Fortnite has doubled up as a virtual platform to host film screenings and musical performances with three Christopher Nolan films being screened for free at party royales big screen last year. Nolan also collaborated with Epic Games popular battle Royale shooter to debut the new tenant trailer on the platform and lead up to the films released. Laura, what do you think about this? I think this was always going to be coming. Fortnite has been such a big explosion of a brand so quickly that epics to the kind of company that wants to get more products going where they can. I think it makes sense for Fortnite more than it perhaps does for a lot of other video games that get ported to movies because like epic have done a fantastic job I will say in taking an online multiplayer shooter and giving it a plot that people cared about and through lines of narrative and have kept people narratively engaged with an online shooter in a way that I don't know any other company that has and I'm like, you've got a lot of people who care about the world building you've done and you're apparently very good at putting plot into things that typically don't. I can see them making that work. Yeah. It's interesting where I'm right there with you where this is an inevitability. Fortnite is one of the biggest brands on the planet. And I think that it speaks so loudly to younger kids, especially. And I think the idea of giving those young kids, more content to consume and more things to be obsessed with makes a lot of sense. Whether that's a movie or an animated series on Netflix or something. I think or both, you know? But this has always been a thing where there's differences between the video game IP that are turned into movies that seem like I feel like there's like three different categories. One category is filmmakers that know nothing about the games. They don't care. They're just like, we see an IP here and we feel like we can make some money. There's a story we can tell. There's that. Then there's the category of the people that are like, we genuinely care about the game and we really want this to work, but those are the ones that tend to not have the right budget, the right team, the right elements to make it all happen. And then there's this third one that's kind of just like, well, the IP itself doesn't necessarily lend to a movie, but if we just add a couple celebrity factors to this, it kind of sells itself. And I think that this reminds me more of the angry birds movie from a couple years ago, right? Yeah. Here's the thing. I don't doubt this will be stunt casted high heavens. It's gonna be entirely celebrity cast. I imagine it's probably gonna be a comedy. It's probably gonna be fairly low effort, but I think that at the very least, I think the epic knows they can convince people to turn out and see this because the number of people who when a new season of Fortnite starts will come into watch a narrative changeover between seasons, says that like there are people that are invested in seeing what they do narratively and they probably don't need to make too much of an effort to get people to go to the cinema for that. Yeah, and you know what's interesting too with being epic. I wonder, I mean, they've kind of proven that, especially with the Fortnite brand, they care, and they get it. They're constantly changing and adopting. I think the most interesting element of Fortnite to people like me is the kind of crossover events and getting other IP involved. I doubt that would be the direction that the movie goes, but there is this obsession in Hollywood of things like ready player one or space jam of just kind of like IP orgies. I'm the opposite to you. That's the thing I fear because I fear this just becoming cameos for cameo's sake that disrupt any chance of this having a coherent plot because like I think about the emoji movie, that was a film that two thirds of which was let's product placement jump between as many brands as we can, and it made that film unwatchable. I could see Fortnite going the same way. Like, oh, we've got to go have a little Rick and Morty time because we've got that character in the game. Oh, we've got to go over to this world now. And I could see I could see that coming badly. Yeah. I mean, what's interesting is as an outsider to Fortnite, I've said for years that I thought that there would be an animated show by now already. And so much of that is like, the fact that there's not a main character that I can think of for Fortnite, like just the one main avatar. There's certain things that are. I think it's a character called jonesy who I think she's meant to be the main generic blond man. Yeah, it's interesting that kids attach to that character though. Maybe they are. I don't know. I mean, he shows up in all of the narrative stuff between seasons. I don't know whether that means people are invested in them. I don't know enough about what kids think of Fortnite to know whether they actually care about that character or if they're just that I don't know play is as Thanos who I don't think being able to play as for a long time. Kevin, you are definitely the biggest Fortnite player that I know. What would you want from a Fortnite movie? Let me start there. What would you want and is there anything that would make you actually interested? There's 0% chance. I do not play Fortnite for the story aspect of it. It's the being it hang out with my buddies and, you know, just for the someone got pulled through a portal for somebody. Not at all. No. And in fact, I've missed I watched two event two of those big events, and then I missed the last one. And both times, I was like, this is like just disappointing and I'm no longer letting myself get excited for these events. So yeah, this is definitely.

And, Yeah, I wish I would have thrown that one away or just wanted to Jonesy right away, because obviously that changed the game turned again. So where did he and his teammates go from here? There's not much you can, you can say other than they beat us. They played way better than us. We played bad. I played bad and uncharacteristic of how we practice and training camp.

By the way, in case you're thinking about just sort of Bogart on down there and jumping in line. The vaccine is giving up on Lee to people with appointments. And anybody else who shows up we'll be turned away. So you gotta have an appointment and you got to be over the age of 70. Yeah, There's a new hotline to call to get registered and set up and it's Kovacs co or the last digits. I'll look up the rest. I believe it's 1877 Kovacs, co CEO of a ex CEO, but evidently this past Sunday went pretty good. Yeah, there were like a whole bunch of tents, right? I mean, like 17, or 18 tense. I think they tried it with 500. I think on Sunday present 1000 0. They did end up doing 1000. It's amazing. Yep. And after the first hour you see health added some additional directions for drivers. And then they listed another flag waver to point people in the right direction. So after the patients were vaccinated, they're required to wait in another parking lot for about 15 minutes, just to make sure that their body is He's going to tolerate the vaccination. Some signs they're told drivers to honk their horns. Put on their Flashers that they began to feel sick. And they had. What would you got roving people, their medical people that would go assist you.

But I have people who are In the health care who are my age who got really sick from who felt like they had the flu from it for a couple days and then put in there, then their final, right But they did get a fever. And they did end up having a really sore arm. And like they felt really nauseous. I could deal too sore arm. I mean, Eventually or choose to get sore arms. Not a big deal. You just don't want to get really, really sick. Yeah, so I mean, all of them survived, but it would they. Some of them did say they felt like they had the flu. Other covert stories. Some scientists are saying that dogs and cats may have to be vaccinated as well. To help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Hopefully, dogs and cats are last on the list. I got stopped kissing my dog, I think, yeah, I mean, I mean, really seriously because every single night I will. It's just sort of a ritual. With the pop You know, you put put both them in their little cages and say Good night brother heads and then the pup got to make sure the Sadie's doing good, so I literally stick my whole head and shoulders into the cage.

What in the H E double hockey sticks is not what we were taken. You got two minutes on the clock. I know I'll get the ball to the most dangerous quarterback in the history of the game. What What went through that man's mind to not go for it. It's called Analytics. I agree. I would have have certainly let Rogers have a shot at fourth and eight, even though, was that the eight What is called analytics and my guess is the very brief conversation took place and whomever is the analytics guy said to Matt Leflore numbers say, Kick it, and I think maybe it could have been that concise. But it analytics does not take into consideration the gut feeling of the coach. Um, it's it's purely a mathematical equation. And to me at that point, you're you're better off no matter what the numbers say letting Rogers have a chance to do even if they don't get it. I said this yesterday, even if you don't get it. You've got Tampa Bay on the eight yard line. You still have the two minute warning. You have all three time outs. And yes, you do. Then have toe stop him and go down to score and then have a two point conversion. I get that, but I just I said it at the time I would have let him go for it. Life. And real quick. Come on the Corona. Virus. This is my my personal opinion on it. You never remember Jason. How he'd be stalking the debutante. She would be running faster and faster, and he would just on Lee be walking, and then she would get into the safe house and he'd be behind the door. Yes, that's the correct wires. It's Friday the 13th, right. Okay, thank you, chief said. Not like the Geico commercial, Jason Friday 13. Yeah.

Well, there's been versions of it already around, right? Oh, yeah. Thank you See on the lice all before even Covert 19 are Corona vices, or you would see that it's Lysol cannon, the wipes. Don't you wonder now? Seriously because you know that At least I think it's safe to assume that there will be other viruses may be even worse than Cove in 19. I wonder how we're going to be prepared to prevent something like what we just experienced not only globally but more specifically in this country. And we we entrust to our politicians and doctors. On goes involved, too. Stay abreast of all that. Stay ahead of it. I mean, we don't We entrust that they do, but I mean, after this last go around, I just I've thought more than a couple of times like okay, like what's next year, the year after whatever. What's coming down the pipe. The pike here in Can we trust that the people that we Thought we could trust. They're going to be able to mitigate something like that A hell of a lot better than what they did This time. Don't shows you how vulnerable we are. And just how fragile life is. We're just just on this the balance of life. Is so fragile. You see what happened this year? And I agree with you, Dave something probably bigger. Will come.

A person is is much more important. It might happen. I don't know if this comic his name is gabriel. Iglesias fluffy fluffy is very popular. Yes of my favorite comics end.

"In new york was great plans to get that training a lot of actors. They do it the other way around. They go to college for a year or something or they go to they the acting fasten they go now. I need an agent. Carr's i'm ray. And then they struggled to find an agent. I i had the opposite experience which i think is very common at all at all but i think the the thing that you can definitely take away from. It is that you should takes some courses or classes in acting in. You should get some training these are. This is a technique after at the end of the day. Even auditioning itself is its own technique. You could master auditioning and really not even be a great actor so you gotta learn to take addition technique classes courses in also acting as well in addition to it. Because once you get the job you gotta know what you're doing on the stage you gotta know what you're doing in front of the camera you gotta know what you're doing voiceover microphone the all of these things so In if you're lucky enough to be in a major city you could get these. You can get these skills again. Take classes that will provide this for you and being in new york. It's full advantage of that in two classes for years and years and so that's how i got into it. That's amazing it's something that i've never had before because personally for somebody who has tried to get into acting. It's really hard and for some people you'll find that the hottest spot like you mentioned. It's finding an agent. Because when do that find them from. You don't know if you go you don't you don't know if you ask somebody to refer you to them so i catch your experience and though is the upper to show. It was hard in the long run. You went through a lot of additions. And whether s some that you really wanted to hook this edition and get the contra didn't or yes of course there was. It was many of those. They were mostly hosting auditions. That was really really really have a gift on the microphone. I can improv. Anakin do a back and forth with somebody.

"We're already late. Oh, man. So So on Christmas, huh? I told the kids we should watch a movie on Christmas evening because we work on the family's house and we were doing all the things we normally do. And I said I said, Let's watch the new Wonder Woman movie and Jones, he said. No, we have to watch a Christmas movie. Let's watch Wonder Woman on a different day. Isn't that a Christmas movie? Which one? You should have called me because It takes place during the fourth of July. But at the end, they shot an extra piece. That was Christmas that made it no that we want to collate. We watched. We watched Wonder Woman on New Year's Eve, which I'll tell you about. That's a separate story, but Um And I said, You know what? You kids have never seen die hard. Now, This is the age old question. If you wanted to watch a Christmas movie, Is it a Christmas movie? No, it's not. So leave. The director weighed in and said it was a Christmas movie. And it has been a long time since I've seen die hard. It came out 1988, and it looks like it, doesn't it? Doesn't then God bless holds up. Come on a little. It's pretty creaky. E mean part of it is just watching movies with kids when the entire movie would not be necessary if there were cell phones Like none of this would be a problem. Well, and the other thing to remember when you watch die hard. And if it seems creaky, remember it set the precedent. Oh, yeah, of everything else that was to follow. So, yeah, everything else that was to follow. Keep ramping it up in ramping it up, so it may seem creaky. I just remember these scenes where they keep cutting toe. To limousine driver or something, and it's just all of this nonsense. I'm just going. Why are they doing Argyle? Because they have to remind you that he's there. Argyle is still there and pivotal Bill Also remember, we didn't have as much a DHD back then we were able to linger on a scene and it was fine. But it was so fun to watch with them because you know the Of the minute. Hans Gruber shows up and they're all like, Hey, it's name Mr Cowboy. And Yeah, it little things like there's that scene when? When Bruce Willis throws the body off the top floor went like to get their attention is a great movie to watch with Children was wonderful. Yeah, and and you watch and it's a long Shot of this body, and it's a guy falling off off the building. And my son said. Is that a real guy jumping off and you can tell it's a stunt guy jumped off a building and They don't see that all the movies they see now everything is is e g. And they could tell watching that That's a real guy jumping off the building. And this is the thing. We had this discussion for geek show about Michelle Yeoh because we were talking about Star Trek Discovery. And Tony had not known Tony or Rebecca had not known what an ass kicking actress Michelle Yeoh is It was, and we're like, you know? Yeah, She's amazing, but go back and watch. I think it's super cop threes than is the one that she's in with Jackie Chan and you will see stunt men. Getting hurt? Yeah, left and right. And it doesn't happen. No CG and flying tiger, Hidden dragon or Crouching Tiger. Yeah, yeah, that she's great, real the real You know, on the ground? Yeah, Stuff is in the Jackie Chan super cop movie where she and she does all of her own stunts because they couldn't know that we're going to go back to the guy falling off the news on die hard. They show him falling for so long that they cut to the limousine driver commenting on it, he's still Fawley's look at that. No. And when, when Jonesy saw Alexander Godunov, you know Carl, the ballet dancer at the beginning of the show. She's like he's gonna make it to the end, isn't he? I said You just wait. You just wait. So we get all the way to the end. And, you know, you think the movie's over and Bruce Willis and his wife were walking out and the cop is there and And then did it and then you think Carl's dead, but he's not and Jonesy stood up. And started clapping. I they loved. It doesn't get to watch that with cousin Alexander Godunov, as matter fact, doesn't he get in the limousine and drive off with our? Yeah, sure. Still talking. No hard feelings. Let's go. Um, but go now to Netflix and search the movies that made us and they'll have our long documentaries about the whole bunch of different movies. Diehard is one of them and you'll find out about that whole Alan Rickman slowly falling bit. He was terrified of heights. And so the fear you see on his face is real Brickman. It was so fun watching that with them now coming up, I'll tell you about Wonder Woman. I'll tell you movie, not tow Watch quickly. For some reason, decided to watch this Kristen Stewart movie. It's on Netflix so just released this year. I don't know when they made it's called underwater. Oh, yeah way made that mistake too. It's terrible. It's just terrible. Not good, although I liked her in it. I mean, you know, Yeah. I mean, there's some kind of there's some kind of good kind of fun special effects, but it's a It's a movie. That's a lot of noise and a lot of special effects based on zero story No, there is no story. Nothing. Just off. Alright. However, on the other suspect side of the spectrum Soul Pixar. Oh, man. That's I, That's the movie of I said out of the two big movies that were released on Christmas Day through streaming services. There is one you should watch and that his soul really good, Jonesy's Josie said. It's the best Pixar movie She's ever since She loves it that Oh, she loved, she said.
