Devastating Injury Rocks the Vikings
"Okay, Chip and James, got a lot to talk about here this week. But James, we're going to defer to you. It was a tough week for the Vikings. We could talk about this or we could just find other things to depress me. This was, it was weird. I'll tell you what. It was really weird because my dad was telling me and my dad are dead. When it comes to the Vikings, that's our thing. That's what we care about the most. when Um, I texted him, I know you can't tell if someone's crying over text, but I was pretty sure he was crying because not that, not that we were going to win a Super Bowl or anything, but we were turning it around and people were kind of getting excited. We had the chains, Kirk go back, all that fun stuff. Is there anything more devastating than an injury that's not caused by the other team? Oh yeah. Yeah. Okay. I have a question here for both of you. Before we get into your MBV candidate, now that's come in as quarterback, um, the, uh, is, is Achilles just the, the injury to juror this year, or is there a reason Achilles is becoming more and more problematic with quarterbacks with wider savers, anything else? Or is it just, just one of those years? I, I think it's just happened with two very high profile quarterbacks. Right. And anytime that happens, it's going to get a lot of attention. Um, but you know, and talking about the Vikings, Doug, I mean, what four weeks ago, you know, they're, uh, you know, they're one, two at quarterback and wide receiver was Kurt cousins and Jordan Jefferson, and now it's Joshua Dobbs and KJ Osborn, so I'm going in the right direction to KJ Osborn, who I think is a good receiver, but what's good is, first of all, Jordan Addison is now our number one receiver that man is he literally showed up the moment Jefferson went down. They were like, all right, let's just throw him the ball. Um, and that was because of cousins. Yeah, let's do, let's, let's just pay our respect because Kurt cousin is going to just 35 and be 36 next year. I don't know where he's going to be in his career. That's a devastating thing to get this late coming up in a contract season. Yeah, but he was literally at the top of his game. And that sucks because I know, you know, we can all joke about Kurt cousins, it doesn't play big, blah, blah, blah, but if you just took his numbers and didn't know that he was a huge creed fan and you just took the numbers and you just looked at those, yeah, you would, you would put him up with a bunch of other great players. So despite that, um, uh, the Vikings said, we're not going to do anything, no trades, nothing happens. And then sure enough, MVP candidate, Josh jobs shows up on our doorstep and, uh, he's going to take us to a Superbowl Nick Foles style. I'm certain of it. Cause it's the only way I can get through
People Will Always Judge You, So Let Them Judge You on Your TRUTH
"Are staying authentically ourselves in these spaces where normally you have to code switch yeah and I think there's there's there's this pressure that we can't use our slang our colloquialisms our bionics everything and I just saw the young lady who was in um sisters I think her name is KJ and she was saying how she would change her voice and she would you know put on airs and do all these things and it got exhausting at some point she was just like I can't do this because she wasn't being her authentic self and I said earlier today people are gonna judge you regardless so let them judge you on your truth let them judge you listen they gonna judge you anyway so let them judge you on your on your truth but the thing is what is your truth right and I think one of the things of being a psychotherapist is that a lot of people are coming to therapy when they feel like they've lost themselves and they no longer know who they are what they like what they want they just feel depleted and devastated often when they come to therapy and they don't want anybody to know they don't and you know I use a therapist from and still I rise which is a really great diverse company that has a therapist for every type of person and the reason why I chose them was that you know one I have a lot of friends who are psychotherapists who are social workers who are doing this great work shout out to y 'all and I didn't necessarily not keep it a buck didn't feel comfortable necessarily going to someone that knew me so well but when I found this organization one of the things that got me was that I was already paying insurance right and telehealth was costing me only $15 right and I was like well that's two trips to Starbucks for me or maybe less right and I was like I can afford to pay this $15 and have my insurance company a lot of people don't know that they can have coverage for therapy and choose the person that you you think will be best for you and you can try a therapist and and not work out you could go to a new one that's like I think sometimes we are just so afraid and when you said judge me on my truth I just want to spend a moment here because none of us are the sum of our worst days and our worst actions right you said it a different way but I think a lot about in the criminal legal system where I spend a lot of time trying to rewrite laws or change systems I oftentimes tell people like not everyone's afforded that second or third or fourth chance because they don't have the money they don't have a dad who's a senator who can make a phone call they don't have a great attorney they can't afford to pay one and so there's a lot of people locked up because their worst day came and they didn't have the supports and helps and resources that they needed

"Kind of, I'm just a cathar disciple. I mean, that's really because the packs are functional. And they fit like, I mean, they have something for everyone. It seems like, what just separates them? I think it's a combination of one, the product, and the people, right? The people are heavily involved in the products, right? They're a business. So they have to make money, but Aaron, a good example is this bedlam launch, Aaron and I want Aaron's air and test those bags himself, right? So they get a prototype that part owner and president and CEO of the company is wearing that backpack in the field like beating it up, trying to break it, trying to figure out weak points, trying to figure out if it's functional, like he is heavily involved in the development, right? He's not just some guy drinking scotch and collecting paycheck. And the amount of time that Aaron spends in the field, but their designer Ryan bender, he is, he's a freaking genius for I mean, he's a genius. But and he has some wazoo ideas and it's usually him and Aaron going back and forth to design a backpack 'cause bender bender haunts and whatnot, but Aaron's got like he's got the huge knowledge base so they kind of trying to figure it out, but I would just say it's the way that they build the product and the way that they test their products and then it's a 100% American made. Everything. Everything. They're not, they're not outsourcing, I don't think they outsource anything. Nothing. Which is difficult to do. It's super difficult to do. A lot of people complain about the price point and that's why the price point's high because they're paying American wages like American people selling the packs together. I mean, it's out of Wyoming. So the reason why people are complaining about these packs in the prices of them is because if you buy one of their duplex light frames, if you buy that, you're looking at like 450 bucks. And then you buy the pack after that, and you're arranging anywhere from, I mean, three 25, three 50, somewhere around in there. But after you have your frame, you just buy the pack. If you need another adventure or something, you just buy the pack. It's not like you have to go in by another frame. So I think there's an associated cost with an initial jump into a good quality pack. But after that, man, I mean, it's a lighter load to bear. Yeah, and it pays off too because the frame is so comfortable and so modular that the frame is like the that's what everyone's like. I don't have 400 something bucks for a frame and I'm like, well, once you get the front, the bags aren't bad. It's a two to $300 pack and you can get different packs and I'll switch them out easy. I mean, it makes sense. Because I run a 44 mag right now. For the longer hunts, or the two to four day hunts right around in there. But so why would someone, what would someone need the battle for? Because I'm looking at the 44 mag and it's really close in specs. But I know when I look at the specs, that bedlam would probably fit me better. For a hunt like that. Yeah, so the bedlam is the bedlam. I'm super excited about it because it's a combination of my two favorite backpacks. The reckoning, the reckoning is a backpack. They still have it on the website. It's got a full zip down the center, which I really love for load and quarters in like Elk quarters because you can unzip that sucker and then lay the quarters in there and get them positioned just right and then zip it up and get the compression straps just right and you can really lock that load in and golden area right between the bottom of your shoulder blades and the top of your top of your back. So that was one of my favorite packs ever and then the other pack that I really like from them was the cavern, which was an asymmetrical backpack. It was like half of the hoodlum basically. So it's very simple. Hoodlum, the pack that I had in Alaska. It only had one zipper pouch on one side, and then you had a zipper entrance, but it wasn't a bull zipper on the other side that was clean. So the bedlam kind of took that asymmetrical design from the cavern, which I stopped using the cavern because kafar stopped selling it and I got tired of messaging me saying they wanted that backpack and it wasn't on the website. And half of the time it wasn't. So I had to start using the pack that they actually sold. But they took that asymmetrical design with the one zipper pocket on the, I think it's whatever decides they're relevant, but with the one zippered like spotting scope pocket. And the clean side and then they added that full zip. So from the top of the snow collar, all the way down to that nalgene pocket, the pack opens up, like all the way up, which makes it super easy for packing or accessing gear in your pack. And loading quarters once you hopefully get an animal on the ground and got to start putting weight in there. And I think that's what I'm looking at. I'm looking at the design and when you say a clean side with a full zip, that makes a lot of sense for that. And it does not have a load shelf. Is that correct? It does. It does have a load shell. All right. Yeah, but you never use a load shelf date. I'm only, if I'm using a load shelf, like there's some, I went way too far into the Woods and trying to get as much out. I can in one rib. I don't like to load shells because if you're one, it's the way compression, the compression strap, it doesn't matter what backpack you're using. The way the compression straps are and those backpacks, it's way better to carry the heavyweight quarters and meet inside of the bag versus on the load shelf. The only time a load shelf is going to be something I use is if I've got all my gear and I'm trying to get all my gear and some of the meat out because I'm not probably going to get on the size of the animal, I'll probably not going to get it all of it out. But when you're doing that, even when you're doing that, what that does is here's your back, you put that heavy quarter up against your back and then you have all this gear way out here. So it really like the way that you're carrying that load is not fun and not comfortable for the taxing near that structure, like your frame. It's taxing your posture and that's why you end up in your back's hurting and everything else because you're not carrying your meat out properly and you're not planning ahead. And that's one thing that that was one of the funniest things that I've ever seen is him hiking Mike sitting here hiking out a full Caribou, a full Caribou in the pack you were using was the hoodlum, right? Yep. Yeah. A full Caribou in the hoodlum. And that was crazy because that pack had to weigh almost a 120 pounds. Yeah, at least. I blown that sucker out. That was unreal. But yeah, the bad ones knew. The badly, yeah. And the other thing that I really sold me on it was adding those pockets. They call it a hellbender style front pocket, which is just, it's got a little bit of stretchy, four way stretch material, and then they have a couple buckles where you can kind of cinch that pocket down in that pocket. It's good for like you got reindeer, you just figure out backpack hunting or your backpack rain cover or whatever you're hunting.

"Dude, just an outdoorsman. Probably the thing that I remember most about when I met Mike and my time in the Alaska on kodiak with Mike is his, he's a mountain goat. Probably one of the strongest individuals I've ever met. And he doesn't stop. I don't know if that's the military in him, or is that his just willingness to succeed in life, but my gosh, dude. You put me to shame, and I thought I was in shape, but not for a flatlander. I'm an okay shape, but dude, you're on another level. And you're on a new whole new program. So you're working with kafur, you're working with born primitive. And you're doing a mountain tough, which is an app based fitness program, developed for backpack country hunters, like if you want to get in shape for a hunt, this is the way to do it and tell us a little bit about what you're doing with mountain tough. So yeah, I don't I wrote an article about them and they gave me the right the article that gave me like a free year of checking out their app. So after hunting season, I started going through their program, and I'm going to pull it up too, so I don't screw it up. But I started going through their program. I mean, I kind of played around in the app and looked at their program. It was like, this is right up my alley, right? I like, I don't want to say I like CrossFit, right? But I like functional functional fitness or this was a goal, right? I've always, I mean, I'm in the military. So all of our fitness is always outcome based, right? We do PT every day in the army like PT is 6 30 in the morning to 7 30 usually. Now that I'm in the job I'm in, I get to do it whenever I want. But so PT has been a huge part of my life, so looking at the program was like, this is cool. They have like, they have a very rigid periodization and a really good structure to the program. So I started, I started after hunting season they had in season, they have an in season strength or in season maintenance program. So I started doing that when I had time and was feeling up for it because my body was pretty run down after hunting season. But then on the November, the February program is their backcountry hunter postseason straight. Yeah. That's like postseason, right? They're rebuilding strength. That's all like there's a little bit of while there's still a lot of cardio, but a lot for me. Not much of a fan of cardio, I guess. I love cardio. There's a good bit. So they've got they've got postseason strength, so I started the postseason strength program. I did that. I loved it. I'd like the way that it's not all the same. And I like the way the structure and the progression builds in the lifts and you're tracking your tracking, you know, you're tracking your one rep maxes and you're watching your stuff go up, like they give you instructions for every workout, like make sure you write down how much time it took you to execute this amrap workout. Or whatever. So you're tracking your stats. Now I'm in backcountry hunter spring training camp, which is their march to April program. They have an elite spring. I don't know. That's the same date range. Backcountry hunter preseason prep, I haven't looked at that one yet, but like the way the way that the programs are working so far, I'm a big fan. So I've been messing with it a little bit and I've really enjoyed it as far as like just keeping me just keeping me honest and building the right muscles because one thing that I notice every time I head out west for a hunt is my hip mobility and my hip strength. Like that seems to be the area where I have the most problems is in the hips and this does a really good job of building that foundation, at least what I've experienced is building the foundation, getting you more mobile and building that strength. Yeah, yeah. Like I said, it's a fun program if you like. It's a lot of functional lifts. It's a lot of you're not just been deployed to Afghanistan or whatever and we have prison gym, so all we're doing is like curls and bench press. And I get bored with that stuff really quick. That kind of working out, if I don't have a fitness goal in mind or like an outcome that I'm looking for, then I lose I lose motivation to work out. So this is a so far it's been a great program. It's good, man. I highly recommend it, it's mountain tough. For you guys who want to look into it, go check them out. But so kafar, let's get into that because they just recently launched their bedlam pack and it has been sold out, I mean, since it launched and it was sold out within what was it? Two hours or less. Under three minutes it sold out. Okay. Under three minutes. So you know it's a good one. When I get it, I get a text from Mike and it's like, have you seen this? And it's under three minutes, it's sold out, and I'm like, oh my gosh, you got to be kidding. What makes kafar different? And I know Aaron Aaron leads a great team over there, but I mean, with all the packs and there's a lot of great packs out there, there's a lot of people who are dedicated to a brand, but I got turned on to kafar when I started heading out west and it's just kind of been a standard for me.

"Baggara was doing a guard experience like ten minutes away from my house at a range right outside of the gate at fort Carson here where I work. And the videographer that was supposed to film, it had another hunt to film. So my buddy Caleb called me and he's like, hey man, we need a video guy. We'll pay you, go down there, we just need like, this is like gonna be a YouTube like a gun shooting Montage just capture the whole experience. Not really telling a huge story, super easy lift as far as video goes. Down there and film that worked with the entire begar team, the marketing team, some of the some of the engineers that designed the guns, customer service guys. I worked with the whole crew that the CEO was out there, former army guy, like went to dinner with him afterwards. So I worked with a bunch of their ambassadors or influencers or sponsored competitive shooters were there. So I worked with the whole team and shot video all day and took photos all day and got to know everybody and I guess they liked me and then they kind of looked at what I was doing on social media and thought I wasn't super, super stupid must be well, the thing about that is that I don't think a lot of the young people growing up right now in this age understand like how much of a negative effect their social media is when they're younger can have a play on down the line. And if you look at your social medias and I mean, it is a class act, it's you doing the stuff. It's not and you're having fun with it. It's not some corporate site where it's very tailored to a certain audience. It's just you doing life. And that's what I think is great about it. And you show your works throughout the history and you see the development of your skills. I mean, it's like you're stacking arrows in your quiver. Which is one of the biggest things that you can do. And I love the fact that you say you provide value to a company. Like, what are you bringing to the table? Because we see it every freaking day. Selling efficient lure and it's just TNA. That's all it is. What did you what value does that bring to the company? I see none of that in early influencers. Like if you want to call them that. One of the biggest frustrations to me is the whole influencer. Don't get me started. It's so frustrating. It drives me nuts. There's guys in the hunting industry that there's guys that don't know how to hunt, but Aaron and I were talking about this when we were in Texas, there's a guy that we all follow, I'm not going to say his name or anything, but we all follow and know of I found out like his first hunt was not that long ago. Yeah. He didn't really know what the heck he was doing, but that dude will tell you everything you need to know about it far backpack and how it should be used and where it should be used, but they don't have the experience to back it up. And that's the biggest thing that drives me nuts in the hunting industry. And I don't know that it will ever change. Is there's a ton of people that don't have the experience to back up the stuff that they're preaching or talking. I've seen there's recently a guy in the that's come on the scene in the industry and he's talking about how awesome this brand of screwdriver is. You've talked about it on a podcast like this that he does just in front of his computer, but the screwdriver is I immediately go look at his page and I'm like, all right, let's see, is he put any furniture together with that screwdriver or in this knife? Like how many animals have you cut a taking that knife into the field? No, you're just counting it because it's a cool kit brand and you're trying to get noticed by the brand. Then you've got people that pay for followers. Oh yeah. To me is just out. I think that's like a character flaw. Like they might be a good 100%. That's validation for themselves. They just have to have a big following because they think that just having followers get you in the door to some places. And some places it is, but it might not be the company that you want to be associated with. Yeah. They'll take, they'll take anything that comes their way. I know a lot of people that way. I would say the other thing is building a network, right? You got to be likeable and you have to add value, and that's how you build a network because if people don't like you and you don't add value or don't move the needle, watch you around, but as far as followers go, there was a point in my life, right? As I matured, I realized that doesn't matter. I was like, man, I need a ton of followers. I want more followers. And then who doesn't who does it deep down inside? We're all a little narcissistic, right? Like everybody likes a little attention. But I've come to realize like having the right followers matters more so than having a ton of followers, right? You can have a bunch of random people following you, but like I've got like if you got some key players following you and they see that you're legit, like you or John Barclay at sitka, like I've come to realize like I've got sure I don't have a huge following, but I have the right people following. The work I'm doing and they see the lifestyle I'm living in the work I'm doing and they're like, that needs legit. We want to work with it. Well, who it's always like, what's in life? Who you surround yourself is what's how your path is going to go. It's the people around you that are building you up. And I don't know why, but man, here lately, my Instagram page has been like, oh, hot chick is following you now. And I'm like, hold on a second. Something's not right here. And then I go look at she has like two posts, and I'm like, not today, Al-Qaeda. Not today. Not today, I exist. But hey, we're going to jump in here with a quick break, and on the other half, we're going to talk about some of the companies that Mike's working with. So we were talking with my current. We're going to talk about kafar packs. We're going to talk about born primitive clothing. And probably a little bit more about how he stays in shape for the mountains with mountain tough. All that, on the other side of this break. All right, thank you to our sponsors. Hey, the Ruger SFA are. I'm not sure if you're familiar with it because I talk on it here a lot. They're coming out with a 6.5 Cree more, which is really cool. It's going to be under 7 pounds in an AR platform. What this is going to do for you is those fans of that 6.5 creed more. This is your chance to get a lightweight AR ten rifle, all right? These don't come around that often, but Ruger has figured it out. And if you want to learn more about the Ruger SFA small frame auto loading rifle, you need to find out more at Ruger

"Is a sponsored hunter and absolute professional in every sense of the word and he's working with kafar international and born primitive clothing. So check them out. You're going to want to listen to this one. It's a little longer, but it's well worth it. Hey, I'm KJ, dedicated lifelong hunter here. If you've got an interest in all things honey, you're in the right spot. Whether chasing quail across planes Oklahoma or in pursuit of belt in the backcountry of British Columbia, you'll always find me on the hunt. All right, welcome to all you gun talk hunters. I'm your host, KJ, today, very special episode because it's my brother from another mother, mister Mike Hearn on the show today. Mike, how you doing, dude? Good buddy, how are you? My man, I'm doing good. It's always a good day to see your bright smiling face, but this episode is brought to you by Ruger, Ruger dot com to learn more and range ready studios. If you're not getting training, then you're failing life. Just get training and you'll win life and that's all good. So, okay, I've been trying to get him on for probably the last like month, two months, maybe three or four months. But my current traveled with me to Alaska. My first experience with him was dude, this big, this just giant smile running across the airport, like, hey, UK. Like that's it. And I soon found out what an animal he actually is. So my give the folks that give the gun talk hunters out there a little glimpse behind your life, what you do, where you came up from, just give us a little bit of some stories. Well, yeah, so I grew up in upstate New York, where the men are men and the sheep are scared. Everyone when I tell people I'm from upstate New York, everyone's like, New York city. Get a rope. No. No. It's dairy farms like the further north you go. The more the banjo music starts to play, right? I mean, it is. So you're from banjo banjo country. Yeah, you might have, I mean, I'm telling you, you might have the further the further north in New York State you go, it's like, I don't know what happens, but a paradox happens and it shifts. And you feel like you're in the Deep South minus everyone doesn't have a southern accent. Wow. Junk cars decorating the front lawns. It's real America, right? It is real, America. It's a great place, minus, you know, the gun laws and stuff. Yeah. But I grew up up there a small town, not a lot going on, right? Anyone that's growing up in a small town usually knows. There's nothing to do. So you either get out of town or you stay there and keep doing the same stuff, which I was getting in trouble because getting in trouble is one of the only fun things to do in a small town. That's how I spent my free time, so I ended up going to the military straight out of high school and then living all over the world and kind of reconnected with hunting in I was saying like 2013 when I finally got stationed at a base that had a really good hunting program because I hadn't haunted for like the first almost 6 to ten years of my career just because it's so busy going overseas to Afghanistan coming home training and then there wasn't I was stationed in Italy and fort Bragg, North Carolina and fort Bragg there's not there is hunting there but it's not great. It's a huge huge muscle movement to go out there and get onto animals white tail in that location. A lot of small gear not a big population into yourself. Look at that to fort benning and I could pig hunt and all year round, right? Like chasing pigs. Yeah, chase pink. They've got a pretty good whitetail population on the base, turkey hunting, so I was like, all right, let's do this, and then that kind of reignited the fire and I went kind of headfirst in it and trying to figure out how to make a living after the military working in the hunting industry or something that I live in doing what I love or working with rad people like you. I don't know about that, but well, I mean, 2013 before that you were doing a different kind of hunting. I mean, essentially. I mean, that's what you were doing. Yeah. 100%. So what was the military like for you? I mean, and you're still, you're still active, right? Yep, still active. I got about three years until I retire until I'm actually retired. I hit 17 years a month from yesterday. I will hit 17 years, so may may 16th basically. My 17 year mark. So I got three years until I can fully retire from active duty service. Really, I've been doing the math. I'm already thinking about it, right? Really? Really, it's like two years and three months until I can start my terminal leave or my terminal vacation, use the rest of my vacation days. And then I'm going to start, I'm going to do what the military calls like a career skills program. I'm actually going to go to Wyoming and I'm going to work for Aaron for the last 6 months of my career. It'll be an internship. And internship. Skills training. He's going to be hunting with Aaron Snyder. And I mean, I guess kind of transitioning into your hunting career and how you've kind of set yourself up. A lot of big stuff has been happening for you. You kind of wrote for black rifle coffee company. You kind of wrote for their content arm and then you recently got hooked up with bergara as one of their sponsored guides hunters, like kind of that program. Yeah. So I guess one thing that most people want to know and before we go diving into before we go diving into Kafka and Aaron and your work with them, one question that everybody always gets, man. And they ask me, wow, how do you become a sponsored shooter or sponsored hunter? What was your journey like to get there? Because it's not easy work and it's a lot of late nights because you're also a photographer, you're a videographer, you're an editor. You're a writer. So you're a man of many skills, but you found a way to make them work. Yeah. Yeah. It's a tough question to answer for guys. And I hate the term influencer or I ambassadors kind of okay, but I'm not a huge fan of a lot of the terms that are out there. I attach a negative. You're not an insta huntress. Yeah, yeah. I hate that. I hate that name. I don't got the chest for it, but no. I don't know, you're hitting that mountain tough pretty hard. That's pretty good. We'll talk about that too.

"White House apparently seeming to get a question in advance It had the name on this card Biden hat of the reporter a photo of the reporter and an iteration of the question that resembled what the reporter from the LA times asked Now The White House and the LA times would be fair or denying the story however Kayleigh I find that unlikely the denial I find it improbable and as David Marcus pointed out on Twitter Kayleigh I'm not sure what's worse They got the question in advance or they didn't and they can predict the idiotic press So well that they wrote the question before she even thought of it Your thoughts on that as a former press secretary Well I can tell you you can't predict the press For sure because my team did it they would sit in this area called lower press And while we would never receive the questions I could count on one hand maybe when a foreign reporter would give a question to try to get a leg up you know here's my question can I ask this But aside from those rare incidences you know my team I was talking to them today My former team I was like you know what do you think of this And they said we could predict the questions through hard work Like we would go read the Twitter feeds of the reporters read their stories and they're that predictable so we could predict it But for me as a press secretary I never had that level of detail I can't remember a time when I could have gone to Trump and said you're going to get a question on semiconductors as it relates to alliances You know they didn't bring me their questions because their questions tended to be why is your boss so evil or directly to president Trump you know why did you do X Y or Z terrible defamatory thing they would accuse him of But what I think happened here Dan if this reporter denies it will probably happen She probably walked into the press secretary's office said I want to ask about semiconductors I want to ask about alliances And KJ probably came up with a sample question put it on the card But what a blunder for The White House to show that he needs that level of detail to take two questions Dan It was only two two questions

"Some of the incredible animal communication that has come from some really reputable communicators that have saved lives, including my cat Omar, who I was told one day while I was on the radio from a pet communicator that I thought was just going to be a funny entertaining little bit that I needed to get him to the vet because his head hurt and sure enough I got him into the vet. I felt like the craziest person saying, you know, what brought you here today? Well, a pet communicator told me on the radio that my cats having headaches and I don't know what to do about that. And he ended up having high blood pressure just extremely high blood pressure, put him on some medication and he lived another ten years. So it's been an incredible journey of learning from so many people and learning from so many amazing cats in my life that I wanted to share it and hopefully my story can help your story of cat ownership or cat relationships be a little bit better because I think sometimes we just need a little help understanding them. That's incredibly fascinating and you know you're talking about understanding your cat listening to your cat with the reiki, in the news or in the animal welfare space about compassion fatigue, emotional burnout, really a lot of negative energy. Are you feeling that in the work that you're doing or in the context that you're seeing that people are just very emotionally exhausted at this time? Very much so. And we talk about that a lot. I have a Facebook group called KJ's cat club, which everyone is welcome to join. It's a safe place to ask questions. Bring out concerns. And talk about some of this. And working with my clients and understanding how ranking works, which I tell people, if they never experienced any kind of energy healing, if a hug has ever made you feel better, you've experienced energy healing. The reason that a hug feels better is because there's an exchange of energy that helps you feel better. And that's really what reiki is doing. But if we have, if we have a cat in the house and we're talking about, you know, a safe cat is a happy cat. Well, if you're energy is depleted or it is bouncing up and down or you're stressed, you're angry, these cats are feeling it. And so then it becomes this vicious cycle of their getting stressed. And they're acting out in their feeling and you're like, oh my gosh, I've already so stressed and all my cats peeing outside the box and it's like we have to take a second to step back and get the energy and our home to be as balanced as possible so that not only are we feeling better and are we replenished but that we're not projecting this onto not only our cats but any of our pets because they really really do absorb that react to the environment that we put them in.

I mean, the big 12 in general, if you want to bet on a team to win the title, it's someone in the big 12. Okay. So in my heart of hearts, like I said earlier, Kansas is the team. I can't get them out of my mind. They switch everything. They're so fun. They have this guy KJ Adams, who is, I mean, if I was the warriors, I would say we want KJ Adams to come here. He's a small ball 5. And Brady dick at both of them. Get both of them. Like, get both of them. I mean, Kansas is a fascinating group, and I think if it's not Kansas out of the big 12 Baylor, Baylor is a team that has my full attention, they got chacha back who is one of their best defensive stalwarts and I think they're going to be a really good team. I'm taking them off the hook. Maybe he has like 30, 35 point game. And he's going to say to one. Plus the chiefs just won. I don't know if that ties in at all. And we haven't had a repeat since Florida, you know? And even though this Kansas team, they lost Remy Martin, they lost O chiak bhaji, they lost Christian Brown, you know, they lost David McCormick. They lost a lot of guys on their team. They still have Jalen Wilson, who's one of the best players in the country. And they have two guys that could really get you 30 points when you talk about Grady and you talk about Jalen Wilson. Can I talk to you guys in Iowa at 40 one for the woman's title? Just to ride the king Clark bandwagon. I do feel like they'll have the most bets. Because nobody follows women's basketball, just like, what the machine. Yeah.

CNN Calls Out Karine Jean-Pierre for Lack of Transparency on Documents
"All people, a CNN, the most profane name in news. Oh, thank you, judge Joe Brown. CNN, as calling out KJ P, cut number 11. So you're claiming transparency, but I'm bringing this to you. You are bringing it to me. This happened in mid November. If you are indeed being transparent, why the continued trickle of disclosure around these classified documents. We have released multiple statements from The White House and President Biden's personal attorney has released multiple statements over the last month walking through the process and agreeing to be fully fully cooperative with the Justice Department. This is a process that plays out. We are responsive to the Justice Department's requests. We have been clear from the outset that the president will cooperate with every request of Justice Department has. And we put out multiple statements. Well, not true, not true. As a matter of fact, KJ has been telling us from day one that the search was complete and this is back on January the 12th take a listen, cut number 8. The search is clearly complete. They completed the search, the search is complete. He is confident in this process. You should assume that it's been completed, yes. After the search concluded last night, that search was completed last night. So what are they looking for today? K JP can't wait to hear her explanation of how all that went down. All
What's in the Biden Docs?
"All right, Mark, I gotta get your initial take on this news that transpired first yesterday. Now even more today, this guy having classified documents that he took as vice president and they're just chilling in his garage mark and in his Corvette, but they're locked away. They're locked away so everything's good. Yeah, well, first of all, the left will call you a conspiracy theorist for telling the truth. This is not hard to figure out. You've got a Republican controlled Congress now sworn in with a speaker who is vowed to investigate the administration. He knows his son's laptop is out there. He knows he's been committing crimes for his last 50 years in Washington. He knows those documents were there. That's why he had lawyers go to get them in advance of the upcoming investigations, they got caught, it leaked. And if you watched the press conference or the White House today with KJ P and watch the media who is now forced to report on this, it's almost as if they're asking questions of her now in the tone. How could you possibly have let us down? We covered you for Trump. We covered Joe Biden, the price cut point. Now we're forced to cover this. How could you possibly be doing this to us? It is not a stretch to understand that this was all, it's not a setup, Biden had this information. He knew he had it, his attorneys are in there taking it out for one reason. To get it out in advance of the upcoming investigations, that's why lawyers were involved. My question is, if you want to get conspiratorial about it, is what did they take versus what did they leave when the story leaked?
Susie Moore: The Media Agenda Behind Biden Classified Documents
"And that's interesting I mean we're not in the business of totally connecting the dots for you There are some liability issues but it is interesting to consider that there are some foreign issues that the Biden administration or before that he became the Biden administration the bidens wanted to keep I'll say safe And so took them But that whole the whole idea of what's going on right now sissy with this being compared to what they did to Trump suddenly the media is really interested in classified documents for the first day that this story broke There were all kinds of excuses flying across the media right The talking points had gone out It was like oh this is not the same as the Trump thing But now the media narrative and the media mood seems to have shifted a little bit I played a clip from Ed O'Keefe from CBS sort of having a contentious exchange with KJ P over this and the media now seems to be looking to hold Biden accountable for these documents and I'm not I'm not exactly convinced that it's an honest situation that's going on here What's your opinion about the media point of view of this situation Yeah I think I share your instincts on this The first thing that I asked as soon as this story broke early in the week was okay why is this coming out now Somebody has an agenda here Somebody decided made a determination that it was beneficial to get this information in this story out there It didn't just happen Is it people that are opposed to Biden running for a second term putting that agenda into play or is this something where it's being orchestrated by the Biden White House to try and get ahead of it And sort of mute the impact of it that I don't know But there's no question in my mind that there is some as you put it a river like an undercurrent here This isn't just fact finding and journalism It's something there's something else going on here

My question is, did you watch the USFL championship game? And what were your thoughts on the season? I know you didn't cover it, but if he followed it at all, I'm curious to know how you felt about the league as a whole. I followed it all year and from the first game up until the championship, I thought even the quality of play, of course, wasn't the NFL level, but there were still a lot of good things the league did write and provided a ton of great quality football. I am stoked for season two to come in 2023 cheers. Thank you, Jeff Boyer. I love your name. The truck is going well. I'm finally getting settled in to like how to work in this environment. I've done on the road a lot. I house at a farm. Go watch, look at my Instagram. I've been like all over the northwest. It's been crazy. Like I said a second ago, I'm staying at my Friends. Guest room, I'm actually really not. Like I've been there like for it's the default place I sleep when I have nowhere else to sleep, but I've been visiting friends all over the place. My family, my grandparents. I housed at a farm for week and a half. I've just been doing my thing, man. I've been running around. The truck's going well. I'm having a good time. I am really, really eager to get the stupid Canopy because I hate going in and out of houses. I can't wait to just be entirely in the truck full-time. Now, the USFL. I watched a bit of the USFL championship game, and then I turned it off at some point. No, I think I saw the end of it is what I saw. I was busy doing something else. Oh, it's on. I watched the end of it live. I didn't care to replay and watch the whole thing. Then I would later watch the highlights on YouTube. It was fun. It was cool. The USFL championship game, let's say this first, the Birmingham stallions beat the Philadelphia stars 33 to 30. It was a good game. What I saw, the fourth quarter was interesting and fun. KJ Costello played, he played at Stanford, and then Mississippi stayed in the air raid for Mike leach. He didn't do great, but he threw a touchdown, had an interception. It was fun to watch the guy play like at all. Now, so the game itself, good time, respect it. The league itself as a whole,

"You're a Broncos, saying about his performance there, too, plays this stand out to me, and I want to ask If they were under throws. If they were mistakes by Teddy, the first one he mentioned there with the KJ Hamler deep pass that Ben said that that he thought that was not only a bad spot for Teddy to throw the ball to. It was also under thrown. KJ should have come up with it. It hit him in the stomach, but we'll get to that. The other one was a pass down the sideline to Noah Fant. That was super short. Hit the defender in the back, basically, so I wanted to know based on what those two were. What did you know? This and what is what are we going to see the breakdown? Yeah, well, I mean, listen, I'm going to nerd out about the one that he under throws the thing because it's what we call Why shallow special, but it's also their deep pain or their Seahawk. Which they run. So much of So to me, This is like this is the you know, High five to Pat Shurmur, because it's like, dude recognize. Hey, we lead the league and running Cuba too deep, You know, Seahawk. Let's go ahead and throw shallows special off of it. And by God, it was wide open, right? We've got to hit that one. You thought, Teddy? I mean, you know he was picked right? Like He knows being well that he under through it, and that you know, should be a chunk play. The other one is the same exact play for Minnesota. Right? Everyone in the league. Run that right now It's easy. Read where both those guys Are really on. Hey, go ahead and take the roof off. But if you can't sit at 16 to 20 yards Well, we just so happen to have the one dude in the NFL outside of Tyreek Hill, who doesn't have to sit right? You have KJ Hamler like there's two people consistently on film who don't sit on the read, and it's KJ Hamler and Tyreek Hill. That's it. That's the only two guys in the NFL right now that have proven you know what I can just run by you. No matter what coverage you're in. And then bend 100%. Right, Heidi just under through that, right? That's not like, you know, when you have KJ hamler out there, go ahead and let it rip. But you better let that being referred early. I think You know again. I don't want to start like, Oh, Drew would have done this. But that is the one that drew hit in Minnesota. Right? And I think in terms of what does Teddy need to do? He just needs to get the ball out a little sooner And then obviously, KJ still needs to make that play. But when you're talking about It's not like a little under thrown to where I can slow down and still being tried and the receiver has to do the full 1 80 back pedal and then try to catch it while someone's closing on me. It's a lot more difficult than That people are going to make it out to be. No. Yes, it hit him in the stomach. But there were a couple like Mike Evans had on Thursday night. It ended up hitting him a stomach. But You know if you were to ask Brady after he'd say, Yeah, I threw it way too late. So that's you know, why would the window the way it was? It hit him in the stomach. But that's a heck of a. You know, we've all done distraction Drill. That's a Hard cast in reality. Yeah, I think that's the thing most people don't realize they're turning your body around like that. The ball gets in on the inside in on your chest like that. It makes that catch a lot more difficult. Teddy should have put it up and outside. You know, KJ was Wide open. I mean, wide open on that play, but you know, you got to hang on to that as a receiver to I mean, that's on your hands, ball hitting the hands ball, which gets catchable like that. You've got to catch those. And so you know, I don't want to nitpick teddy down because I don't want to Teddy hater guy, but that was that was a ball that, you know, looking in looking for things to criticize. That was one that jumped out. Um, overall, I felt like the offensive line held up pretty well, Um, I just didn't like the way they didn't get much push in the run game. Yeah. I mean, they really didn't I I ate I don't want to say that that was by design because you never design a run, play and not be successful. I do think that the Giants and this is like I haven't seen this since I've broken down like You know holy oak not to not to take a shot at Holyoke. But like you could literally get the Giants to auto check in the bear like just running 12 personnel out there, And I do think Pat Shurmur was running 12 personnel out there to get this single high coverage. And that they are front and then he should have just thrown out of it. Right. If you know a team's going to auto check you into something that stops the run. You should probably not run the ball. I don't want to say like, Hey, I don't want to fully bailout the line because there's situations where Hey, listen, we're big on big and we still need to get a push right? Like when you're talking like just team mentality and offensive mentality. You want to talk about that without being said as a coach when they spend a single high coverage. We need to throw the ball and I think You know, I really after watching the film and Washington the makeup of the game. I really wonder if we're going to see a transition. To a Broncos off and it is the first in 10 more traditional drop back or play action team because I do think what Teddy showed in terms of his decision making and traditional drop back quick game. And the play action, not the run action stuff with the play action that I think he just made enough Good decision to where you could really say you know what? I'm 1st and 10. Let's go ahead and throw the ball. Right, Let's turn into a team that we're gonna we're gonna, you know, have a modified running game by getting it to the perimeter earlier and I do think that we have to do to do it and listen. K. J. Hammond got to play a little bit more, put him in the slot and just throw a bubble. There's some stuff that you can do. To really alleviate if you start seeing these heavy fronts, and then, of course, like you guys know the second, they spin back and play too high. That was just run the ball because we have the numbers. That's exactly right. Actually thought overall, Teddy did a pretty good job, and I would love to. You know your perspective on it of of checking things out, getting his protections and, of course, Monitoring what they were doing with the box. But the question I want to ask you more specifically because you tend to be fairly critical of Pat Shurmur and some of your breakdowns. What do you think about the play calling? The past the man I mean, there's like tonight..

Why'd open all day long? Oh, you want to take away? Uh, Jerry? Judy, Okay. We're going to take KJ hamler and flip your entire defense around. And you know what? We're going to blow the top off your defense, and I couldn't believe that he dropped that ball. I know them all. By the way that we should just see. Like Drew like you complete that exact same pass. Oh, my goodness. Right down the same of your entire defense. And he dropped it right on KJ Hamlet, and he dropped the ball. Good thing we scored on that drive, but oh, my goodness does Oh, and he threw it. He taught me been, though more perfect than it was. I didn't know. I'll I did was like, Oh, you gotta be kidding me, man. That play was one of what? That was one of the players yesterday that we got to talk about. I mean, that was just That was crazy.

Dr Snyder, who said it may be a little longer than that, but good news. He's coming back. He's going to make his way back. This football season.

You know, I got to take you to the play man because it was one of the best plays of the entire game because it was a third down play. It was a third down and seven play. And of course, uh, when you go back and you look at it Jerry Judy was putting guys in the blender all day long. But on this play in particular Jerry Judy man playing number 14 3rd down and seven the cushion that he is receiving from defensive backs. And ability to get open, man. You just can't beat this kind of movement along seven. Now Bridgewater in the gun.

If jesus is the embodiment of god's love and god's holiness god made flesh human as they come. Why do we think that holiness. And fullness of life would reside anywhere else than in our humanity right right. Yeah it's like. Let's not try to outdo. Jesus just for yes. Yeah you know. We've been more shaped by the superhero gospel. But the real one with god who bled right. You know it struck me. Was this fall and it struck me. Jesus having a panic attack the guests so many off guard it. He was having a full on anxiety attack like nobody talks about that like he. That was a mental health issue. Like yeah that's okay like he. It's fine that like the way the weight of what he was facing actually affected him. Yeah and it and it didn't. You're right if it didn't affect him.

Oh no but he is tend to not really think of the humanity part he you know he knew everything you could fix. Anything could do all this.

That experience is one that repeats itself not necessarily in a circle at the same church. I live across the country in different place. Now but that. Every i'm that i come to the table i can remember. Jesus is broken body. And every time that i feel the broken us in my body no matter where i am whether i am what whether i've stepped foot inside the doors of a church or i am sitting laying down prone in a bathtub. The brooklyn nets in my body becomes a place of communion with christ and i can eerie that experience of being seen the solidarity of jesus's willingness to be broken. I can carry that by my very presence to everyone around me. I could become an instrument of his peace and an extension of his eyes. And look at the people i see in the face and show them. You're broken is welcome to the. That's i guess. How often spiritually formed by in and receiving other people's presents who have experienced that deep solidarity with jesus to yeah..

There must be there. There is going to be something good here for me and like have the courage to see it to look long enough right another interesting part of your book. I think that that kind of companions mine is the idea of getting back seeing yourself as not your body alone but at the same time not disconnecting yourself from your embodied saul and you talk about on page one eleven an emotional whereas kind of connecting that idea of you're going to process trauma that you're going to hold trauma in your body to. It's not just some memory that you can talk out and the okay everything's better. There's gonna be trauma that's non lingual that's going to be stored and have that fighter flight component to it and you say on one eleven. Emotional awareness is an underdeveloped muscle for many of us. One that can feel uncomfortable but us as you learn to use it as you begin using the functions of your brain to notice the world of your right brain. You will experience gains that. Make the cloud of suffering more navigable calm. More accessible and comfort more palpable. One way i walk many of my clients through learning to be more aware of their feelings as by having them pay attention to their thoughts and how they connect to their physical sensations as in the following exercise which is a little bit later below. We do not always have the time to walk through a full exercise like this but we can become more tuned to the distressing thoughts sensations and feelings. We experience when we take the time to acknowledge our bodies feel we learn the feelings we so fear are not quite as scary as we thought when we noticed them name them and breathe deep in their presence. We invite the peace of god into the place of our pain. And then you talk a little bit in these bullet points about feeling what those sensations of those feelings and thoughts are as they manifest in the body may be a tightness in the chest may be A reoccurring and.

"Now. Would you say that people who can do that. Better generally have had their own bunch of suffering or does it seem like We'll maybe there's just sort of people who are more sensitive to in an empathetic way. And i say this because i've noticed with people who want to sort of fix or attempt to fix advise is that they're actually uncomfortable about something that your situation reflexive them that they can't control. Yes yeah definitely. Yes so both i do think that blessed be the god of all comfort. Who comforts us of var frictions. So that we can come for others in any of their afflictions. That's true and so the places where we've walked into the cloud of uncertainty and learned that the shepherd is still with us. Are the places where we can walk with others. And not put our hand on their shoulder and say you're not lost but also i think that we can. The people that are safe and soothing in the middle of are suffering are those who have willingly gone to that place of silence and on knowing and uncertainty just in their spiritual life so the practice of silence and solitude people who have made that a rhythm are usually the people who can be with you and not have to fix you because they know what it's like to be with god and not have to bring anything to the table. I love how you say that you mentioned also about A lot of shame that comes from you know this is a lot of this is cultural and we pull on ourselves to about whether it's you know not finding healing or just feeling out of place or abnormal or alone. Maybe you can talk a little bit. About how shame has figured in two. Obviously you can't reveal the whole book or that would spoil it but it's okay but you know A little bit of the journey of.

"Bulls they drafted back to back wide receivers. They took no offense. God, Courtland Sutton. Right? I forgot about him earlier. Shame on me. They have Cortland son. Although he hasn't been a part of this, you know, most recent Uh, You know, push by the Denver Broncos to improve their offense. They've invested a lot, and they did it all. To get the best out of Drew lock. That's not working out. John Elway. Despite The ineptitude, despite how bad the last few years have been. Broncos somehow find themselves onto Sean Watson's wish list. And it is now incumbent on John Elway and George Payton and Kareem Jackson. Vic Fangio and anybody else who could have any impact on this? To try and make themselves the most attractive destination for just John Watson. And then they have to make themselves one of the best offers. Probably not going to be the best offer on the table. White if they can get close. To Miami and the Jets. Coupled with two Shawn Watson to sign. No, this is where I That's this is number one on my list. Maybe they could make it happen. I don't see a trade package that is too much for the Denver Broncos. I really don't I mean, honestly. Would you say? Absolutely. Positively no to Cortland Sutton. I mean, just Absolutely no You have Jerry Judy, you have KJ handler Eucharist signed Tim Patrick, Potentially If a guy you did, Shawn Watson. It wouldn't be my first choice, either. Maybe you could go multiple first round picks KJ handler. But I think that that would be overvaluing KJ handler. I'm just saying there are no there are no bad. Trade offers Bradley Chub, You want pass rusher? Bradley Chub. Re signed von Miller and we'll see what we could do. Maybe we get signed J. J Watt in that case. This is the essential piece of business that the Broncos have failed so many years now. To get done. You need to pass rushers. You may be shocked Bear it wants to come back. I don't know The opens Pandora's box If you end up with the Sean wants in What I All I'm saying is that if he's interested in the Denver Broncos intrigue, interested, smitten whatever the it is incumbent upon the Denver Broncos to now do everything they can in order to land him. And make the Houston Texans go back to just John Watson and go to their fan base and say We had this on the table and we said no. That's all you could do so you can't make the Texas trade him. You could make it really compelling. And Gruesome back channeling you can convince to Shawn wants in that Denver is the most attractive destination. It's in a minute. It's amazing opportunity that is completely come out of thin air. For the Denver Broncos. All this toiling all of the pain and anguish. And the son wants is is intrigued by you. The nicest thing anyone's said about the Broncos and years Not saying the Broncos end up with them, but they got to try their damnedest to try to make it happen. What's um, I mean, I like to play audio here. I don't like to hear from Jeff Brightest, but it just It enhances the segment. So here you are. Story number two. This certainly is not a total tear down and rebuild, like Um, you know, certain teams have chosen to undergo over time. I think of that were the case, you know, certain certain players would have already been traded. Right Or we would have, we would have made serious overtures to to move certain players in an effort to completely tear down and start a complete rebuild, so No, I don't think that we don't think that this is This is the case for for our situation right now. And that is Rockies general manager Jeff Bright. It's you know, his voice. It sounds like nails on a chalkboard when you hear him, but I play that audio from That blood letting a couple weeks ago. To tell you about John Paul Marosi is report that says That the Colorado Rockies or not. Engaged in conversation surrounding Trevor Story. Bite. With him being a free agent 2021. He could be a potential that could change between now in the trade deadline. Yep, right. It says it's not a complete tear down, but I think we're all at the point where we believe it should be. Should be like, what do you get you? You've already said that you're not committed. Adding payroll. You've done. You've shown that for the last couple of years, and you showed it and you've made every pandemic relating Excuse you can in order to Try to make us understand why you can't spend any money. And he just shipped off $50 Million or $500 Million. Whatever it was, Maya's will be 500. Dime is too much to pay another team for taking the best third baseman in the game off your hands. Look, we know you're not going to add to the team. You've signed Pudge Rodriguez, his kid and great bird. That's it. That's what you've done. They're both nonroster invitees to spring training. You made no other moves. So you're not going to get better? Right? Logic would tell you that I know logic is not part of the thought process at 20th and Blake, but They know they have to know They're not gonna get better after this. At least not better. Now, let's even live in a fantasy land. For a moment. That every one of the players that Jeff brightest got in return for Nolan are Renato turns out to be big leaguers and decent big leaguers. Everybody in that deal, Except for Austin Bomberg will not be on a major league roster and at least two years They won't That's how baseball works..

Coming up this week at the 2021 PGA Tour's back on CBS kept to Little Rory Little, Michels said. Lefty Fowler, head to Torrey Pines, competing at the farmer's insurance open and coverage begins Saturday and Sunday at three Eastern Noon Pacific PGA Tour, as always is on CBS, you know, let me give you a little. Let's see what the the leaderboards looking like. I know, Phil. I saw those watching the golf channel for a minute last night. I know that Phil was like, minus one. Relatively pedestrian. He's nowhere shuffling, I think was playing pretty well. Last I checked. Let's see real quick before we get to Stafford. All right, Let's see what kind of leader boy we're gonna have on CBS's weekends. You got out of Scott. All right. Adam Scott's there minus nine. You got Patrick Reid? Modesty You got John Rob minus seven Got Tony female. I mean, you got some store power as expected at the Farmer's insurance is a big event you've got. Who else is in the mix here? McElroy's within his modest four, So he's you know, just a front line away from being right there. Snickers. Yeah, Whatever. KJ Choi Sabbatini boy films to really bombed down market. Lishman, Pretty good player think he's from Australia. Mm speed is modest, too tied for 39th a lot of names there. So if you wanna watch some golf, I'll check it out this weekend for sure, CBS So Matthew Stafford, right, You know Stafford is You know, I always say this with Donald. And it's totally not comparing Donald to Stafford. I could only get only wish that you know Donald does or Delivers the ball like Stafford has so far, but I say a lot with Donald. You know, I need to see I need to see him with an offensive line and, you know, innovative coaching and the running attack in some perimeter weapons weapons of modern offense. Now, you might say, Well, those are excuses. Let's now take this over to Stafford because he hasn't won a lot. We had not won a lot and first overall pick. I guess it's 11 years ago was a 2009. I guess that would have been with Stafford. It was online. First overall picks was played for a long time. The bulk of his career is already written. His stats are tremendous. He's got a lot of touchdowns got a ton of yards. A lot of that stuff is empty. A lot of that stuff is empty. Not all of it is his fault. It is very hard. What I'm saying teeth to fully assess who Matthew Stafford is, and maybe more specifically if we're fully convinced if you give up a ransom to get him. Do we know that he's not gonna flinch in a divisional matchup or conference champion? We don't know that about staffer. He is just based on his his tenure. He's been one of the better fourth quarter clutch quarterbacks. In the NFL. Now he doesn't win a ton, but he is It's not like he's his statistics. They're going to scare you. The question is, you know, really with Matt Stafford. Is he better than what you have, like this conversations we've had with Shawn Watson for the last really three days. Is he better than what you have, and we could say, Look, probably 27 of the team's..
Patriots at Dolphins: Alain Poupart breaks down Miami's running game
"The Houston was really the only team I would say that actually through on the Patriots effectively this year and DeShaun Watson besides Russell Wilson all the way back in week two thousand. I am curious, you know, the Dolphins do they have a running game. Do you think that they can do that with because I don't see it, but I don't want to I don't want to be biased over here. Either way. I mean, there are 30 second in the league in rushing yards per attempt. They were missing their top three rushing leaders last Sunday against the Chiefs. What's a be perfectly blunt? None of them are impact players Matt breida came off the covid-19. Wednesday obviously he'll be back. When he hasn't made much of an impact after coming over from the 49ers in the in the trade Myles Gaskin is on the Cove in list and he's a nice story as a second-year seventh-round pick who laughs basically got a cup of coffee in terms of playing time this year and he basically became their feature back and he's got some ability. But in a in an Ideal World Cup gasket is your backup is now your future back in this is what the Dolphins are dealing with our offensive line. Also a good story much better than was last year. They're starting three rookies with Austin Jackson am handsome in kinloch. but when you start three rookies pretty much ninety-nine percent of the time you're going to go through some growing pains and their offensive line while again exponentially better than what last year is still not great. Let's say it's worked in like but they're not a whole lot of big old being open in the running game and you don't have running backs off will make a lot of things happen on their own. So there's a reason again there there are thirty-second in the NFL in rushing yards per attempt and complicating matters. This week is they have injury issue is that wide receiver position where they also have a lot of players but not a whole lot of impact players. So you mentioned might get sick you earlier I believe and now he's got a shoulder injury where we can't get any Clarity from Ryan Flores as to his status for this week. It's all we'll see is working on all that. But if you saw the injury really really hard to Envision him playing cards Devante Port Parker pulled a hamstring or had a hamstring injury against the Chiefs you came out in the first app did not return. He practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, so hopefully play it but then if he plays this carrying a hamstring injury. And then so who else do you have left after that now you're looking at your team Grant who is more of a return specialist and and then their shuttle pass receiver gadget Play type of player on offense. He's also got a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Chiefs game. And then the rest of the wide receiver Corps is rookie limbo Junior who played multiple positions at Kentucky. You have a Mack Hollins who want to sign as a special-teams standout, which he is. He's very going to special teams but more so than the receiver and then you have one of the guys being talked up being able to make a major contribution as Isaiah Ford who you may remember from his three weeks with the Patriots after the acquired immune to trade in his office. I knew he was he didn't play it down for the Patriots. I knew how long is not going to last year when he got up here and he said it is freezing. I need a winter coat, you know, what am I going to do? And I just said look, I'm sure he's a fine football player. I'm sure he could make an impact on the team that needs wide receiver help but this guy does not seem like he wants to be in New England right now. Well, no, but he plays at Virginia Tech. So I'm so he's not like dead. He's from Jacksonville plant in Virginia tag, so it's not like he's not he's never been the call before and the thing about Isaiah Ford and then it was often friends are thinking. Well, Isaiah Ford is going to come and rescue the the passing game and that like life. He's a really really really nice good. And he might be in the league for ten years because he's got a great attitude. He works hard doesn't see anything. He's not an impact player. And right now this is what they have their wide receiver Corps. If she doesn't play they have nobody who's going to really scare the Patriots defense and if you you throughout the city also doesn't play. I mean who makes things happen on this office on Sunday? So that that's a big

A Father's Story with KJ Carson, March of Dimes Ambassador
"K J Carson here. He's an ambassador with the march of dimes. And he has an amazing story that he's going to share with us and he has a lot of information about the march of dimes. I'm really excited to learn because I did not know how much they were helping out women and babies and families so it's really cool. The work that they are doing in Cagey got to experience it firsthand. So thank you so much for being here. Oh thank you so much for having me I guess where the beginning starts. Maybe Two days before our daughter was born and My wife was complaining of tiredness and so forth and we were really fortunate because The situation that we had for her healthcare included included a midwife and so that midwife had given us a card where if something had didn't seem right within a let's just call it a clockwise our someone from the midwife team get back to you so I said Okay. Well once we get back to our home which was about ninety minutes away Let me know how you feel. Maybe your medicine melted my wife's medicine just run out and so I thought okay maybe the worst. You'll need a refill To to kind of your because your body was depending on this medicine for your morning. Sickness so My wife wakes up the next day. And she's like I can't see virtually at all. Can you call the number? It's all like okay. Wow I've never known it to be this. So hit the pause button on that part of the story to tell from the father's perspective and I think every father should probably map out a route couple of them to get to the hospital and the time we're in the Washington DC AREA. If you knew how just absolutely ridiculous traffic is in the DC area. A hat and done this yet. Yeah so after calling the midwife They called back within about twenty five thirty minutes. It's a come into the hospital where okay absolutely. This is what I'm thinking. We'll get prescription for medication and So forth so I'll pause that part before we get to the hospital to say that my wife has been the epitome of healthy eating Not over indulging Had always been on. Medications has never been a smoker of any kind. I can't even get her to drink even the sweetest wine so she she clearly observes just virtually all the tenants of what a healthy mom should be But then when we got to the hospital It just seemed like we were there a little bit longer than expected and it turns out that my wife ended up with a syndrome called help It's an acronym acronym H E L P One way more people would know about is pre ECLAMPSIA but it's a severe case of P pre ECLAMPSIA and so my wife's blood pressure shot through the roof in the high to hundreds was the top number and we were just told. We're GONNA take the we have to take the baby today. And so my wife was only twenty nine weeks pregnant at the time and so our daughter was born two pounds. One ounces of two pounds one ounce And was in the nick you for one hundred and fourteen days She had a category four brain bleed and born with low scale cerebral palsy My wife did not have a chance to hold her her daughter for about four days because of the level of magnesium if I'm correct That was in her system and I was able to see my daughter because of the time that she was born. And because the visitation hours in the Nick. You which we're Kinda split in two times Were about to start so I was able to see her briefly for a little bit but our daughter Sarah was make you four hundred and fourteen days and it was just very tough to touch our daughter through a glass partition where book plexiglass. You know. Just giving her to reach our thumb. Grab our thumb or grab our finger But what was really fascinating about being in the nick? You were the other families in. How kind of Emeka is kind of this bubble of life where It doesn't matter what your walk is. What your beliefs are what your status is. Everybody's there for the same reason they're baby can't go home right away and so it kind of becomes a a small dependency in a way because you look forward to seeing the other families even though you're hoping just like everybody else that they can go home today with their child and so the march of dimes Was there for US When Sarah was in she's now eat When Sarah was moved from one hospital next to the Pentagon Over into an area of Fairfax Virginia The march of dimes had had a kind of like a thing for families where you can stop by. Wasn't anything mandatory. It was just the way to let someone know or let you know that. Someone's there if you had any questions that you didn't feel like you could ask a doctor or or or one of the nurse practitioners or one of the nurses that are in there Let's just say they dealt with the mental health side of it. If the Niki was the physical the march of dimes was there to help address. Some of the mental. And I know for my wife who could speak better about this but I know that it was something as simple as providing my wife a journal because as a husband and Kind of jokey way husbands are just notoriously known for like are you okay are you okay are you okay are you okay? And it's like I'm not okay anymore because you keep asking me but from a serious standpoint I just didn't know which avenue to walk down In terms of trying to get that communication with my wife of trying to understand why our child wasn't home And during that time when our daughter was in the hospital Literally inactive guide. A freak of nature happened where there was an earthquake that hit the east coast and it was like a six point. Oh and I happened to be over the hospital trying to let my wife know like hey look. Don't get out here. We don't know how bad things are. Even though nothing bad happened at the hospital but it was like okay. There's an earthquake. Are you okay at home? I'm wanting I'm going into the hospital as people are coming out and so So many of those different things that were going on that time while daughter was in the nick you The march of dimes able to provide even something as simple as a diary To my wife for her to be able to get her expressions in her thoughts out. You know again Probably one of the things that helped a lot and what I've learned from the situation is you know. Sometimes the foods that you put into your body can can exert exacerbate some of the stresses that are going on that. You're never really prepared for so. I really think that one of the blessings and everything that was going on was that my wife had already had kind of a a conscious thought of what she was putting into her body or not over stacking the foods into your body which you know I I would have no problem that they were. I knew there was one time she was like I'm craving mashed potatoes from KFC. And I WANNA Taco from Taco Bell and I was not going ask. Do you wanna eat this right now and it was just like okay. I'll be back in ten fifteen minutes. Is that enough time? It's just say also get one of those Green Mountain dews okay or the Light Blue Mountain dews. I'm like okay. You're really in his own but it wasn't an everyday thing and I think because that wasn't an everyday thing It allowed some of the mental to be able to permeate and be able to translate to the paper for her For me And I would recommend to any husband or father who's going through the same thing Try and find some things that you know may bring smiles to others During your free time I happened to start donating food to a food bank at that time. In fact that's exactly where I was around the corner From the hospital Earthquake hit and so But it it gave me a a sense of being appreciative. In spite of the things that are currently happening With me at that time. We're with our family at that time.
