"Jodie foster service in the panic room couldn't set the line. That's my goal whether jodie foster katie decky basically sounded like she was in so who who else is on. This is a little bit of a degenerate fantasy fast like fantasy and the waiver wire deep. Gotta get in the pool five. Am to train to go. Pick up miles austin on the waiver wire often. I saw them in vegas once. Who is on this list. Tj your dream list for our fantasy man you know. I have to take the break. Think that i really haven't i really haven't given much cleaner exclusive former guests slash friends of the show or it would make sense for us to have some type of relationship with them right right fantasy. What we saw. We tried to do a full peacock basketball. I don't think that turned out really. I also kind of screwed up by making it. Rotisserie little and weak the weak head to head and enriched was getting on you about it and i didn't want to be on his side like stomping you so i kind of like thank you here but you don't get in the celebrity league. The rich eisen celebrity league is this guy on twitter at wait wa eight. He might be about or something. I'm not sure if he's real but he tweeted out a photo of lou brock with an umbrella as a hat ab- rela. He has that photo in his phone. But again i'm not sure if it's a real person i feel like it's bought the guy who literally changed his name to. Hey ben lines not lot. I think i think this is part of the algorithm. They're listening to us. People are listening. There's surveillance they're listening on. This of that guy joined the celebrity fairness. I mean sure. Jodie foster just traded aaron rodgers to at wait one eight three seven only the rich. Eisen maitland her. Seventh move of the picked up another running back. Oh man ben lyons in for rich on the rich eisen show the show rolls on. Read gold medalist on the show. That's absurd got with michael because michael beasley on your top ten knicks of all time. Absolutely he's right on that list. Also magic lumpy never never played though for the team chris smith. Jr's brother got two million to chill lot of tau for the table. That guy he blew all two million in one thing. They think they said do christmas. Give you two million dollars. We'll give you four million tau dollars what he would have taken. You would rather have the next go-to tau and the door man would be like yo your coaches in the back with a table and they'd be like we should probably probably hit home. That's true got brockovich sheet rock massage. Oh in see michael beasley on on the nickel yellow yellow power injure israel. I believe i think so. I think he thinks he's a real guy hold on is that there's some michael beasley power ranger connection. He might be might train. Power ranger gloves. Dr j. your doctor. J. fan member. He had the infomercial of the gloves. Wilmer valderrama. They didn't have fingers on the end of them. They're like cut off. Gloves had appeared really stick on terms and training. You don't see footage of hoodie. Mellow working out in dr j. shooting gloves again hoodie. Mela was wearing a hoodie. So that was his version of conic. Is this man that he trained in a hoodie. So the next season the nba put hoodies on their warm ups. Yeah right you think that's real or is that just a coincidence. Heavy mellow became a thing. Wow this guy. i mean. It's his craft and changing his body. He's willing to put on a hooded sweatshirt to increase the sweat in his workouts. The dedicated athlete. He was forced to play alongside. Who guy bathe wine. And here's this guy was putting on quoted sweatshirts in order to train maximum efficiency so the nba recognize the greatness and wanted to improve the quality of play across the league. So they put hoodies on. Everybody's you can say. All this straight face is hilarious. But that's the great but mario. We did that once right. Healy bathed in wine. One time and that just became all the time. Did it twice because there was like one time when he did it and then some reporter from. Espn did it with him. I remember being accent calling my assignments to bathe in cabernet with doing here..

"Just take a moment around because that was something everybody in here was curious about the idea of issue going to get back to try and make another run at and you kinda gave michelle. Foia some side. I wish she suggested that maybe this was your last olympics in. Did you make that decision and winner. You're going to start training again for paris. No you know. I mean it was. It was totally vowed question. And i love michelle and i feel bad if anyone thought that i Had a reaction to that question at all because No i've i've always had my eyes set on on paris and I think i've been pretty clear about that. Over the past several years and I don't have my goals yet for paris. All i know is i want to be there and i wanna compete for team. Usa and in the next several months. I'll start getting into the weeds in terms of deciding what events i wanna target. What kinds of times. I wanna cheese What kinds of metals. I might wanna earn those kinds of things But right now. I'm i'm keeping my mind off of that as best i can and a little a little hard. Because yes you do you get out of that Right after after the racist from anyone and everyone so I i know it's gonna start becoming more and more of a focus for me over the next several months But for right. Now as i said. I'm still still letting tokyo point. Twenty-one thinking one addition to winning a ton of olympic medals you mentioned that you've won some weeks in fantasy football so katie. I'm very curious about your fantasy approach. You worked away you chime. Make a blockbuster trade how do you construct your ostra for fantasy. You know. I've been playing fast football With my cousins for a while now and Some people are a little more serious than others. And i joke with my mom. I think where the to that probably do the most adding and dropping of players and some of my cousins who don't do anything end up winning more games than than we do. So i think my strategy going into this fall is probably just going to be the to be hands off as much as possible and maybe even have some Some some spots empty on my starting roster like some of my cousins do some weeks and hey katie. This is tj. He wanted to say. Congratulations and since i'm putting together a richeisenshow fantasy football league. I would love to extend an invite to you to play in our league. What do you think i mean. You don't have to be here. We're pretty lax. But you know we do expect you to put a starting lineup in every every week so The invites they're all. I'm saying okay. I may be created some some trouble for myself at all sorts of invitations. Now this is what happens when you win. A bunch of meadows you get all types of pitches and people want to do business and they wanna invite you in their fantasy football. It's more so that we could say we have a gold medalist. Yeah it's more for us than it is for you katie. Just to be honest. But we'd love to have you you. You talked about inspiring the next generation of swimmers or just folks out there who are looking for that inspiration and you look at the performance. Is that not only. You had out there in tokyo. But your teammates The entire united states swimming program the men and the women. What do you think. is the impact of going out there on the olympic stage. How have you seen that inspiration. Be received in your own life. It's been awesome and i. I had so much fun with with my teammates We were together for four or five weeks and mclean olympic trials and the olympics and just had so much fun together and it. It's more than the medals and the records. It's those memories. And and those times that you spend with your teammates. But i i walked away with at least then and Really will remember for a really long time Just the reaction by different boomers when they have the performance of a lifetime or Just off the mo all the emotions and all the hard work that goes into it. It's so fun to see everyone perform on that stage and I already miss my teammates. It's only been a couple of days per we've been away from each other. But i really miss them It's it's so much fun and It's really such honor to represent team. Usa on that level. Katie the deck. He joins the show. She's partner with bic razors after the olympics on their game on campaign ben lyons in for rich on the rich eisen show. We've got this idea as civilians when we watch the olympic athletes compete and i know the olympic village is different this year. But we had this idea in her head that you guys are of milling abou- running into each other and so you're getting ready for a big race and you want to grab a bite to eat us. Run into carli. Lloyd trying to get a sandwich. Use run into devon booker looking at Some ice fers room. What's the vibe like the olympic village. Well i don't think the women's soccer team or the men's basketball team were staying in the village this summer. But yeah it really is like that I mean the some of the men's basketball players. I think came over on the day of opening ceremony to the village. Because i did get a picture with kevin durant and saw him in a few of his teammates And i know that there were a number of other big names in the village And you you just seen athletes from all different sports all different countries milling around as you said Just so many different body types You know you spot those really tall players And like all right there volleyball or basketball There are some cyclists that are doing their training in the village. So you have to watch out when you're crossing the street because you might just get run over by a a biker. Going you know fifty miles an hour. Whatever they're going And there's their speed walkers that are doing their training around the village and that's quite a sight to see So yeah it's it's pretty amazing. And i think i was surprised at how similar this olympics phelps to the two that i had experienced before this i mean of course. Everyone was wearing masks. And there were so many protocols in place but it really did feel like that. That village had the same energy that it did in london and ended rio when i went to my first olympics. Incredible stuff. congratulations katie. Were so excited for you i know. Tj's really hoping that. Join the fantasy for the rest of us. We're just happy that you're gonna give it another shot to get back in the pool for the next olympics in paris. Congratulations thanks for spending some time thanksgiving. Yeah thanks so much. Katie decky joining the show. Partnering with bic razors for the game on campaign inspiring people with self-confidence you know what it takes to get there on that olympic stage to go out there and compete with the whole world watching. It's incredible it's incredible. Honestly the mental health conversation's been big around this olympic candidate to have that confidence to go out there to do something that you train for for four years. He's got to get right in ninety seconds. There's nothing reset. If there's no start over mazing i don't like that jerry seinfeld bid to it's like oh you came in silver or would you. Would you miss the gun. Oh like tenths of a second. Hundreds of a second like the rest of your life you'll be thinking about those moments but man amazing. She's so incredible. Inter strategy and fantasy. Football is not a out starting lineup and then probably when the probably win the whole thing winners do winners win. I do like that. She is aggressive so in the past. He's been really aggressive and adding and dropping guys. It's kinda my strategy. That's the only way to win is to work olympian right there but also just the idea that getting back in the pool. I think it's so impressive with with greatness. Is that do it once incredible. Yeah do it again again. Do it again do it again. Another four years. He's gotta keep going. We demand so much from our athletes. It's remarkable and she's the most decorated united states women's swimmer of all time and the fact she had ten minutes to hang out with four of us. Morons is pretty sweet metal. We were. let's give ourselves around is on the way out the door. you always tell everyone. Thank always nice like you know she was like thank you. You're welcome you know. Breslow the dmv connection her. Kevin durant grew up in bethesda kevin's over there. He's dmv to the most decorated athletes at the at the olympics connecting pretty cool something in the water and katie and michael phelps area michael beasley. Who believes that. The yellow power power ranger is a real person and ban. You don't know this. But jodie foster here two years ago. And i asked her. I started play fantasy football and she jodie foster was down. We didn't do the league. Had jodie foster was. I'm hoping to play fantasy..

"Ben lines in for rich hanging out with the hollywood set here at the rich eisen soup kitchen. Great ideas to the sharks on shark tank any traction with find out what your parents passed app you got going to but i actually met the person that helped me Come up with that in hawaii. My roommate which i said. I was alone but i was with people kind of visceral at that point. Yeah but no progress in the app. No big fine. Find your friends on. It's great about that is it. Mike had told us that he had had this idea for years. And then having an idea and having a planned out to talk to that guy in less than twenty four hours with no production by me. If i had a human to help me planet hopefully outta humid here that in business if there was only human being who can help this idea for years and then after he did the pitch come to find out. That app had already existed for iran. Had known it was a perfect idea. We love he actually said after the fact one of the other sharks might have bought it. I thought it was a bad idea. Kevin durant go play in the olympics. I really did. I thought coming off the achilles coming off a shortened season a weird season. He's got foot problems already year. Fourteen thirty two. He's already done the olympics twice. I thought this is kind of a bad idea. Nope knows a great idea. A great idea because great. Go hand in the winning. The gold medal team ulan is fantastic. Every durant is incredible. He is without question the best basketball player on the planet. I don't care who's the face. The league the future of the league the most marketable all. He's kind of a jerk on twitter. I don't care nothing to do with it. We talked about playing on the basketball court was the best player on the planet close. It's not even close jaanus at an awesome year. He had an awesome finals. He's an incredible talent going to be a great base to the nba. Market bringing all types of different fans from kevin. Durant is the best hooper on the planet. Not even close again last core. Say what the rutgers say went dikembe in the olympics. Kevin kevin durant i would agree is the best score the best offensive player but does that translate defensively. Are you saying he's overall game. He is the best thing. We have a center on the team. Now we've got kevin durant. We'll have him protect our tallest guy. He's doesn't do that though but he can do everything. He's done it throughout his career. He's played defense. He's been he was a great shop locker for the warriors. And he's he's kevin durant. I'm not. I'm not any disagreement i k. D. is ridiculous. But i'm just sitting here trying to jazirah liability on defense. No like so. Many stars are definitely not. He knows everything out there. I think because when we talk basketball we only bring up the defensive side. We're trying to discredit someone right leg anytime you wanted someone. You'll go well but he does. He play defense. Like i do that with luke every now and then i admit i get caught up. I'll go yeah. He's great but he's not going to stop me from scoring ten. The fact is when. Someone's especially saw tony allen. We love basketball. We think putting the ball in the hoop and nobody does it better than kevin durant. So yeah okay. The team with my points wins. The game and kevin durant has offering the most points as entire career joy to watch him last night. We were clowning. Brockman on sosa bro. You couldn't stay off. I was laid sues down on the couch.

"So i'm i'm ready to be a part of that and Twenty eighth of this month is when we get to welcome back our four olympians. That were Board the eighteen. My chicago red stars team so welcome back as heroes and thank him for representing the tokyo and being awesome. That's incredible. I'm so excited to get out to chicago and catch a game. You know how much love i have for. I said the chicago soccer scene. It's in my family's blood. And i think it's so cool what you're doing with the team to have four olympians now coming back. That's a big deal. Not only for the organization but for usa soccer to have these stars continue to perform and be seen invisible and not. Just go play in their world cup or the olympics and kind of fall out of zeitgeist for a little bit just team you assay soccer talk to me a little bit about your thoughts. Not only on their performance in tokyo but their cultural currency in what they represent in the american sports landscape. Yeah i mean. I think not not grabbing gold hurt a ton and it is really difficult to be the team. Where if you win. It's like yeah of course and if you lose it a huge deal. It's an embarrassing right. I mean it reminds me of serena williams just talked about that in her peak years that like no one really bad it and i when she won again but if she lost with top of the headline. That's a tough position to be in. That's a lot of pressure. So i'm bummed on their behalf that they just couldn't put it together out there to get gold in tokyo but super proud of them anyway and i don't think you can underestimate their impact on soccer in america. Not just women's soccer like a lot of people their entry their gateway drug to premier league or mls or nwea cell. Or you know any soccer in a in a as an american has been the dominance of that women seem back to the ninety. Nine you know brandy chastain ripping her shirt off audi and ham and all those those early early heroes of ours and then in more recent years you then i call them instead of just aspirational. I call them instructional. I really do feel like we're all watching them. Not only be the very best in the world at what they do but then teach us how to fight for equal. Pay teachers how to be confident. And and like have that swagger as female athletes that so often we're sort of denied or told to be either lady like or humble. I don't want that. I want meghan. Pino on a bus screaming. I deserve this right. I want them to be showing us how to do that. Because it's been far too long where we haven't allowed female athletes have that kinda swag so Yeah i'm i'm a die hard obsessive of the us women's nashville team. So i'm looking forward to. I'm planning on going to the world cup new zealand australia. You win. my whole family was talking about this last week. My angie my aunt laura. They're going to be in charge of getting all the tickets. I went to australia for a mileage run for two. For for god's sake. So of course. I got to go for the the women's world cup. That is definitely happening for the line. Family for sure Spain joins the show chicago. Red stars co owner. You know of course from espn sarah. When would you like to see. Justin fields play quarterback for the bears when he and the team already. I'm not one of those people that needs to see him day. Wanted to prove some sort of point especially if the offensive line doesn't feel ready to protect them and support them especially if he doesn't have a good enough grasp the offense. I think we've just seen some some bad situations. That guys picking up habits getting happy feet seeing ghosts. They don't really feel comfortable and then they have to kick those and they get away from what made them great. What made them get drafted high. You know we have this conversation all the time in the nfl right. What is it better to let them sit behind someone and learn or to get started right away and they are examples of both right. You could absolutely throw the aaron rodgers and pat mahomes of the world and then you can look at guys that got thrust into good situation. That's the key. They aren't just good players but good situation. So if what you're seeing out of practice and we're we're hearing a lot of good things we we're hearing a lot about him learning really fast. His is football until i But if what you're seeing doesn't feel right especially against the rams week one go ahead and put andy dalton out there that's got you got him and you could use them and i would rather see that then. Try to prove some point with justin fields. If if he's not ready. I really and i'm i'm optimistic about the guys they grab for the offensive line. An added those pieces. But i need to see it in practice rumbling sound chicago. The bears might be moving. There might be moving from soldier field insurance so it i. I completely scoffed at it. Because this is this is employees. We thought the cubs try to pull a couple of years ago that they were going to go to rosemont. And i'm like listen. Let's just say you're about to sell off your entire team you're gonna want to hang onto wrigley field. Which is the place that gets thousands of people to show up no matter how crap the team is so we knew that that was a total bs kind of posturing to get the city to give them more concessions that they wanted. I thought that was all what was happening with theirs. And i still think that's the majority of this is coming at a time when they have contracts up and they're trying to get mayor lorry like with the rest of the city to give them more concessions on things that they want to build an ad but it is worth pointing out. That doesn't necessarily have the cachet of wrigley field not draw. The team is and there's tons of acreage in the burbs that they could build alongside of Abetting facility and all this other stuff so it's a possibility. I still think soldier field on the lake front in chicago itself. As opposed to having one of those you know burbs that takes the name of the city. But isn't actually. I still think that's what they want But it's not quite as ridiculous as the rosemont cubs. Wow that's that's interesting. I heard and i was like that's absurd. You say there will be some meat on the bone. They're the chicago bears. Mike klay outside of soldier. Feel it's crazy to the idea of watching. The bears play against the packers. And not being on the lake. Freezing as you have achie- achieve greater on your head. It just doesn't feel like it should chicago while you should never have used ever have achieved greater under. Had he's an even if you hate the says he's still just never wear a greater you're better than that But you know there's just the first of all it was a protected landmark so there was all that trouble with that then. They made some additions and that took away that status. But it's still right there on that museum. Campus there's there's nowhere to build really there. There's such a limited amount of space because it is right on the water and all those other things so that would be the only reason but again. I'm going odds are are were sticking at soldier field. Espn sarahspain joins the show. Ben lines for rich on the rich eisen show sarah also a co owner of the chicago. Red stars what was your favorite set at lala or you out there in the pit for tyler..

Now the all time record for goals by a female olympia is nine. A record that has stood since nineteen sixty four so what are katya decades chances of catching or breaking that record in tokyo so katie has a real chance to at least tie that record because she swimming in so many events so obviously she's swimming in the two hundred and the four hundred eight hundred freestyles. She won gold medals in all of those. She's going to be much more challenge. This go around. Australia has had some incredible swimming in the last couple of years. So it's not necessarily mainstay but there's three events that she could win gold medals. They the mild the fifteen hundred meter freestyle. This isn't event that had never been in the olympics for women before and it's honestly katie's most dominant events so that is for sure gold medal. Eight hundred is for sure gold medal. Two hundred and four hundred will be contested. And then she'll be on at least one relay so she needs four gold medals to tie the record for a female olympian.

"In the upcoming Olympic Games. So, Pete, I gotta ask you. How are you feeling about the Olympics? You know? Are you confident they are actually going to happen? Well, first off, you know, we we are very confident it's going to happen. Whether it's a conversations we're having with the IOC or are people on the ground in Tokyo. We have already we have about 140 people in Tokyo, which is a great sign, and I'll be heading over in the middle of July. I head over on July 16th. I'll be over there for about a month, but I go back to last year. When the postponement was decided, which, of course, made all the sense in the world and it was the right decision for for so many reasons and to realize that it was going to be postponed for exactly one year worked out well for us. We could plan for it. We could get ready for it. And quite frankly, so many of the lessons we learned over the course. The pandemic which is hey, we can do more from our headquarters in Stanford. We can do more from 30 Rock. We can do a lot from our colleagues home at Telemundo in Miami, so we will be doing a lot more from the U. S than we otherwise would be. But we'll have 1000 plus people over in Tokyo, obviously led by our, you know, Gary's and tell, and Molly Solomon and You know who's really going to be the face of the Olympics and Mike Tirico? And I think I think this Olympics in Tokyo really has the chance to be something incredibly special. Because in so many ways, it's going to be a worldwide celebration of all of us coming out of this prolonged hibernation and to see these great athletes, these men and women competing for their countries at the highest level, I think it has the potential to be like nothing we've ever seen before. And we have some amazing superstars. When you think about talk about transcendent. I mentioned Tiger Woods being transcendent. You think about somebody like Simone Biles, Katie Ledecky or were so loaded on the men's and women's side and track and field? We're calling it the United States of speed. So we're going in there with a ton of energy. I can't wait to get over there and Fingers crossed, but I think it's going to be pretty remarkable. There are a lot of interesting interesting challenges here One and it is just broke a few days ago that the organizers want The media members to wear GPS devices. So they can track them 14 days because of the coronavirus and all this going on now, Some people don't like that, but that's one of the challenges involved. Can you take us through what you guys have gone through trying to meet the challenges of this The good news about Tokyo? I was reading an article early this morning about you know, the vaccination rate in Tokyo is picking up The public feels better about the games coming there, So I think all of this is heading in a really good direction. You know, If this were just happening out of the blue, it would be one thing. But in so many ways we've been training for this. For 14 15 months. You hear about the pet of your entertainment? I think it was said that this will be the most profitable Olympics ever for NBC this to share that view. Well, I've been focused on the excitement of these Olympics. How we can bring these great stories to life. You know how we use the work that our team does so well? Led by Molly Solomon about introducing. It's one thing to talk about Simone Biles, Katie Ledecky. Some of the other great stars, but Many of the Olympic athletes or people that are our country is going to meet for the first time over the course of the our Olympic trials, which are happening right now, over the course of the 17 days of the Olympics. And if we can really bring these games to life, as we always do If people understand the celebratory nature of this Olympics games and how it truly is unique as I mentioned Has this great kind of return to maybe something that resembles normal over the course of the globe. I think they have a chance to be an absolute home run and really Be one of those great memorable moments in people's lives.

"For joining us. We're here each and every week for you at the same time talking to the biggest names in sports. I'm Jason Kelly. Along with Mike Lynch and Michael Bar, so guys when I'm not hanging out with you talking about sports, I'm still thinking about sports on doing some other stuff. This week was the annual year ahead conference for Bloomberg and I got a couple cool assignments, one of which was talking with Katie Ledecky. Of course, the wildly decorated widely celebrated and Rightly so. Olympic swimmer She was supposed to be in Tokyo last summer. Still hoping for Tokyo this summer, if the Olympics do proceed, she certainly training like she is. She swam at Stanford, and so one of the things I talk to her about was College sports and where we may be going from here. I competed two years in then suitable a for Stanford for some team, and I loved it. I really, really enjoyed it. We want two national championships. Stanford has a really great legacy of national championship swim teams, But it was our first national championship and I think 19 years that we wanted in 2017. So that was really exciting to be a part of I found so many new friends through cause something both on my team and another college teams, and I don't think I would be the summer. I am today if it wasn't for that experience, and I'm continuing to train with the Stanford collegiate team alongside a couple other professional summers, But I loved it and I'm it's hard to see how some colleges are cutting sports and especially swimming and in a couple A couple schools, so it's tough, and I really hope that college swimming and college athletics can continue to grow and that there can continue to be those opportunities for young athletes to reach for, And so what's your reaction? Specifically, you know, it's Stanford. I mean, they've had t cut sports there, which I think everybody Knowing the rich history there. I mean, 27 Olympic medals. I believe, you know, in the sports, the 11 sports that were discontinued. That must be difficulty even though swimming is obviously continuing at Stanford, but it must be difficult to sort of comprehended in many ways and to see Group in and a school that's been so successful in all aspects have to make those sorts of decisions. It's difficult. It's difficult to see fellow athletes, student athletes and coaches all these different people affected by those kinds of decisions. But I realized that those are very difficult decisions that aren't being taken lightly. And I'm sure you like directors around the country are Heartbroken that they have to do that and in certain cases, so I'm heartbroken for those athletes affected, and I realized that these are really difficult decisions and, ah lot of different factors go into play when trying to make those decisions. Do you think we need to rethink certain aspects of college athletics again? Having lived it? I mean, are there things that we should be thinking about the as, like mortals, you know, non college athletes or, you know, just college students and supporters of different universities. Like how How should we be thinking about this differently in your estimation? I don't know. I mean, there's so many different conversations. I think that are happening in terms of amateurism and professional is, um what collegiate athletics and I don't know the answer to it, and you know, I I lived through it. There's a lot of speculation of whether I should just go pro right from the start. And not going to college or what should I do? But I made the decision I made because I really believed in the value of making those friends being a part of that team and having that camaraderie and really growing in the sport through college athletics. That is five time Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky catching up with me for this week's You're ahead conference at Bloomberg. You confined the entire interview online at YouTube and Bloomberg dot com. I will say guys, one of the things we got into do you remember? Before you talk about college sports little bit last summer, that video that went viral of her swimming the length of a pool with a glass of milk on her head. Did you guys? Yeah. You love this first take that They ended up what went viral. First take Wow. Him across on across the pool with a full glass of chocolate milk Anyway. Got milk? Yeah, exactly exactly. You know, she raises it and you know that back and forth about college worth. We've talked about it a lot on this show. They're in danger, and in many ways that we've seen incredibly high profile universities, including Her alma mater, Stanford have to make some really tough choices. Something's wrong, Lynch E. If if that's happening, I brought this up on the on the show before the swimmers, divers track and field athletes gymnastic wrestling. Rolling volleyball. I'm trying to think they're all training grounds for future or potential Olympians. I mean, you can go compete on a club team. But there's nothing like competing against another college athlete and the best in the best of the best come out of there, and that's where we have gotten. That's been the pool for our great Olympic athletes and not not the basketball players. But You know the swimmers and the divers like the Katie Ledecky's, You know, competes at Stanford wins national championships. You know, I look at the Clemson and then their football facility. They've got a barber shop. They got a bowling alley. They've got a water slide. They administer golf. And they just cut track and field from men and woman and eliminated there, And that's not right. Something's off bar and end. It will be interesting to see if if 21 is the year where there's some measure of reform because it feels like the NC double a And its current constitution is that a bit of a breaking point Covert is impacted universities and colleges with students attending in different ways. Now there still will have maybe a zoom attendance but room and board That has been wiped out for a lot of colleges. So they're gonna have to find the way college is to make more at least shore up the bottom line, and unfortunately it comes at the expense. Plenty of what you said. All the sports. It's the nonrevenue sports. I mean, and that's the issue is that you know you've just seen this perversion as it were of, you know, in my opinion, what college sports were meant to be and yet You have these and I've talked to a lot of college presidents about this, You know, they are forced to make these decisions, especially around big time college football, but because they are such big revenue generators and sources of donations, not just to the athletic programs. But as sort of a gateway into giving, so the answers aren't easy, But when you hear someone like Katie Ledecky, you know, talk about it. It just reminds you as you say, Lynch, e that you know this funnel. That the colleges create to the Olympics because the Olympics are obviously about national pride. They're also about sort of preparing people to be, you know, successful humans in some ways, so in any case, check that interview with Katie Ledecky was a lot of fun. Catch up with her for the year ahead. We'll stay tuned coming up.

"Pennzoil Performance line. Brian Kelly noticed football coach going to join us in about 10 minutes and Katie Ledecky, Olympic dominant Olympic swimmer going to join us in about 1/2 a very obvious Dr Brian Kelly to see where we just heard from their aid Jack Swarbrick on the upcoming season. When or if, or when it may start, so we'll talk to Brian Kelly and where they are, but Katie Ledecky, such a dominant dominant swimmer should be swimming right now. If the Olympics were going on in Tokyo. It would be going on now, so it's supposed to be a year from now, so we'll check in with her. Now she's she's going to be probably next couple Olympics. She just turned 23 years old in March. And just unbelievably dominant but where she is and what she thinks of everything and the year wait now for the 2021 Olympics, so are really looking forward to talking to her. Yes, exactly. And the adjustment that she has to make at that level. We talked so much about athletes in their preparation for this season. But now to have your whole timeline and they planned so meticulously around all the events. They're going to do access to a pool during all this all the difficulties That you might face so we'll check in on that. We'll check in with Brian Kelly in a little bit, but we got to check in with the money, and I did make an error and all this because Mookie Betts did, in fact, go out and back up the Brinks truck on this one. It is a 12. It is a 12 year, $365 million extension, adding to the one year, $27 million deal that's got some things to parson it, But I said in a human year, it's technically an earth year. If a human was on Mars, it would still be ah, Human year But on Mars, the calendar would look a little bit. Offered their proximity to the sun. All these things. Yeah, we'll get into what he's making every Earth Day Ah, for the next 13 years, but Mookie Betts in this time or we thought, you know what we listen. Leagues are going to lose money. That's just the way it's going to be, and we have heard through the fight between the baseball between the players in the league. We heard Tom Ricketts from the Cubs say the losses are going to be biblical other owners saying We don't make much money as people think. You know what? We've heard that for a while, As far as I know, we don't make that much money, and we all laughed at it. And so the owners will get mock a bit today because ofthe Crying pour a little bit yet A deal like this goes on goes, so goes on. My thought is nothing has changed. It's just in the time it's happening. It looks a little different. The top the top money teams were still the top money teams. That's not going to change. There's probably a handful of teams. That could have paid Muecke backs this money, the Dodgers or one of them whether it's now whether it's next year, whether it's in two years they're going to be able to do that. So that hasn't changed so they can pay that amount, and most of the other teams can't or won't pay that amount. So to me, nothing is different. It just sounds different, because because of the pandemic and the money that will be lost this year, it's not home. It's not what you're going to lose this how much you're going to lose their just crying a little more poor now, But so they're going to lose somebody this year, but they still have a lot of money. Well, yeah, I guess that's the reminder is we hadn't had to hear them complaining about money leading up to this. And so now you're going to do that in one breath leading all of this amidst the global pandemic, but then still be able to go out shell out cash like this. It's a reminder that you shouldn't believe the people will be attached to their name when they're arguing with the guys with the M attached to their name. And a lot of this. I understand people don't like that in general. But remember who is closer to the place and represents more of your interest in all of this one. I understand. It feels like it might be the team's side but ain't none of us got long money like the billionaires that are involved in all this one, and so supporting them is never really the way to go. And why did Booky Booky booky man? Why not? One more week 9 45 Lookit Mookie Betts gets that 300. It will be 375 million overall, not 3 90 to explain that in a minute. Because on a per game basis, he's the seventh most valuable position player in baseball history with a minimum of 500 games according to war. What wins above replacement per 162 games. Babe Ruth is at the top 10.5. Then there's Mike Trout at 9.8 and you have Rogers Hornsby, Barry Bonds, Ted Williams and then Lou Gehrig. Mookie Betts are tied at 8.5 games. So he's one of those big money, guys. He gets it. The report is 13 years of 292 million, just for the sake of being accurate.
