The Story of "Cocaine Bear" Is Coming to the Big Screen

"Everybody's talking about the new movie coming out called cocaine bear. Cocaine bear. I talk about this movie when it before I was a movie, but it was optioned and when there were attaching and director and there weren't even actors cast, and I said back then, two years ago, I can't wait to see this movie. Because it's based on a true story of a bear ingesting so much cocaine that he died. But this story is amazing. The story of cocaine bear begins with a body in a driveway. This guy, Andrew Thornton, the second was a paratrooper, a police officer, and a lawyer before he turned into he turned to drug smuggling. And he was moving loads of cocaine into America from Columbia, and he would take his sesta 404 up in the air and make these runs and he was having a ball. But law came to an end in September of 1985 when police discovered his dead body in a driveway and Knoxville, Tennessee, and he had been heavily armed, he had on a bulletproof vest. He was carrying thousands of dollars in cash and also oh, by the way, 77 pounds of cocaine valued at $14 million, which was stuffed into a duffel bag, strapped around his waist. And he might have gotten away with it again, but his parachute didn't open after he jumped from his airplane, and then authorities found the plane about 60 miles away and that began the investigation. Thornton had the directed the aircraft toward the Atlantic Ocean, and he settled on autopilot figuring, I'll jump out now, I have all the Coke on me and the plain old crash in the ocean and they'll figure the guy who was piloting it is dead, eaten by sharks, whatever. But turns out he wasn't the only casualty. In his final drug smuggling moves, let's go to November of 85, two months, a month later. Some hunter finds a dead black bear in chattahoochee national forest, a 175 pound bear. And right near that bear was a duffel bag that had initially carried around 77 pounds of cocaine. This bear came upon it. And he got into the blow, and he overdosed. And as it's already later figured out, by the way, the flight path was, et cetera, that this had to be the plane with the drugs on it, and the guy that died and they put it all together.

"On a college football Saturday like today, you can't help but think about being 19 again because they're partying in Knoxville. Paxton Brooks to hold. Chase McGrath for the win for the volunteers. On the way a knuckle ball. He got it. Brad nesler, the call on CBS is Chase McGrath's 40 yarder gives 6th ring Tennessee a 52 49 win over third ranked Alabama in an early candidate for the college football game of the year. It's the first time Alabama has lost a regular season game to an SEC east team since 2010 when it lost to Steve spurrier's South Carolina ball club. Locally, Maryland won 38 33 at Indiana, but hopes it didn't lose quarterback Talia tongue of iloa. Is he exited the game with an apparent knee injury in the second half. 25th ranked James Madison is trying to stage a rally of its own as it comes back from ten down in the fourth quarter to take a 38 37 lead over Georgia southern two minutes, 28 seconds to play in the fourth there on the ice, the capitals are looking for win number one on the young season. It is scoreless between the capitals and Canadians, that game can be heard on 1500 a.m.. And in the Major League Baseball playoffs, the Astros and Mariners are scoreless in Seattle heading to the 11th inning, the Astros looking to sweep that best of 5 series the Phillies on to the NLCS for the first time since 2010 after beating the braves 8 to three. I'm Brian Alvin WTO sports. I'm looking at TV right now and the Tennessee fans are tearing down the goal post. I guess it's pretty big deal to be Alabama. It is certainly a big deal, especially when you're staying undefeated like Tennessee. Brian,

It's <Speech_Male> not easy with <Speech_Male> the number of guests that we <Speech_Male> have. Let me check in with <Speech_Male> John from Louisville. Hey, <Speech_Music_Male> John. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> Hey, Paul. <Speech_Male> Congratulations <Speech_Male> again on your induction <Speech_Male> into the <Speech_Male> Alabama <Speech_Male> communication <SpeakerChange> Hall of Fame. <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> Thank <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> you very much. It was <Speech_Male> quite a night. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Great. <Speech_Male> I was going <Speech_Male> to talk about <Speech_Male> Bryce <Speech_Male> young and also <Speech_Male> want to get your picks on a <Speech_Male> couple of games. But first, <Speech_Male> Bryce young. <Speech_Male> I just have a bad <Speech_Telephony_Male> feeling. <Speech_Male> He's not going to <Speech_Male> play simply because he <Speech_Male> never warmed up <Speech_Male> during the game last <Speech_Male> week. And <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I think it was <Speech_Telephony_Male> a ploy by Nick to say, <Speech_Male> he wanted to <Speech_Male> come in. I never <Speech_Telephony_Male> saw warming up. So <Speech_Male> that being <Speech_Male> said, I think <Speech_Male> it's important that Alabama <Speech_Male> take the ball <Speech_Male> first if it can <Speech_Male> and that it has <Speech_Male> a <Speech_Male> ground game. <Speech_Male> Much like a <Speech_Male> Michigan Oregon did <Speech_Male> against superior <Speech_Male> talent with <Speech_Male> Ohio State last <Speech_Telephony_Male> year. <Speech_Male> Other than that, <Speech_Telephony_Male> they're going to <Speech_Male> lose. <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> It's a good point. Thank <Speech_Male> you, John. Really appreciate <Speech_Male> your con words. Brian <Speech_Male> is up next in <Speech_Male> Tennessee. <SpeakerChange> Hey Brian. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Hey, Paul, <Speech_Male> how are you? <Speech_Male> What's up, my friend? <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> One of the things <Speech_Female> that I think <Speech_Female> this Alabama <Speech_Male> game is <Speech_Male> has a <Speech_Music_Male> moment. <Speech_Male> And what <Speech_Male> do you think about that? Do you think <Speech_Male> that's going to happen? <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> Well, I certainly think <Speech_Male> he can have one. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> if he, <Speech_Male> if Tennessee wins this <Speech_Male> game and <Speech_Male> hinden plays <Speech_Music_Male> like <Speech_Music_Male> he would have to play for them <Speech_Male> to win it, I think he <Speech_Male> would be the <Speech_Male> leader, but remember <Speech_Male> one thing the Heisman <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> 7 weeks <Speech_Male> away. So it's <Speech_Male> not critical yet, <Speech_Male> but it's going <Speech_Male> to be critical at some point. <Speech_Male> Let's <Speech_Male> continue and <Speech_Male> Ed <Speech_Male> is up next.

"It's really fun to make this a competitive game again. I mean, in SEC, we say it means more. It means more to the fans when this rivalry is something great. Well, great. You said something to me a year ago when we were together and it really opened my eyes about Josh hyper because we were still getting to know him, but unlike some coaches who obsessed, there were coaches in this league and at Tennessee that I can think of a couple that lost this game before the season started. How was he different? Well, first of all, I mean, the culture that he's built and what he's done in the last year here is nothing short of amazing. From where this program was when he took it over 18 months ago whenever it was, so you know, we're sitting here at the top 6 team in the country undefeated. And if you would have gone 18 months ago and said, the tendency volunteers are going to be able to college football playoff conversation 18 months from now. What would be your reaction? I would have probably very quietly had you committed. Yeah. But the wild thing is, and we were just talking about this off air. Same players, I mean, you got transfers, you have some freshman plan. But it's just amazing what leadership and coaching from the top down can do to a program. I mean, we're playing with the same guys. It's really not a whole heck of a lot different. But what the vision that he's brought in, the assistant coaches he's surrounded himself. They love Tennessee. They want to be at Tennessee. And they're passionate about turning the saying around and restoring this place to where it needs to be. And they're getting there a lot sooner than a lot of people would have thought. Hence where we're sitting right now. But just what his vision and the belief and the buy in that he's gotten from the 125 guys on our roster in 18 months. Is incredible to see. And that's coming from someone who's played for three head coaches. And I've seen three completely different styles of leadership in all three of those coaches. But what he's been able to bring in and still into our roster for us to go out and put ourselves in a position that plays games. He says that every day at practice, he said, you guys have earned your right to play in this game. You guys have built this. You guys have built college game. Do you guys have built SEC nation? You've built the prime time slot. All the hype around the game has been built by you guys. And we're not here to bury old coaches because they've already been buried. But the point being, did they focus too much on where they tried to sell you something you already knew in relation to this game? 'cause everyone knows who bam is. Yeah, you know, I think just by different staffs, they're kind of outlook and how they approach some of these games was just different, right? I mean, you would be here saying that it was wrong because we weren't on the right side of that game and didn't end up getting a win in it, right? So if you looked at it from that perspective, you would say they took the wrong stance on it, right? But it's football, right? And however you shake it to be, you know, you're getting the same talk before you run out of the tunnel. You're watching the same film that everyone else is watching. But the culture and the buy in from guys on the team is something that in my 6 years of playing, everyone runs post routes and fade routes and slants and everyone's cover for football is football. But when you have guys that buy in and it means something to them, it's amazing to see what it can do. And I think it just different from previous years here. I just think you have a lot more buy in from that whole roster. And maybe that's momentum or maybe that's the culture and leadership. But it's there. Let me ask you about yourself because I am getting sad thinking about this being it for you. Unless they can get you an exemption and have to come back for a few more years. I mean, you really personify, you're kind of the everyman who we just dragged somebody in and you are that person because you are truly, there's no, there's no lack of enjoyment. And I'm particularly curious about how you are reflecting and it's still too early. You're about to play the biggest game, perhaps of your career, but it seems like you have not missed a moment on this campus. Yeah, you know, I'm from Atlanta, right? And I was never a Tennessee fan growing up. I was recruited here. And what this university has done for me has been nothing short of amazing. I am in debt to this university for how much I've enjoyed it. I love it. That's right. Yeah. But it's just a special place. And you know, I mean, the fan base here is second to none. You can't beat it. It knocks full Tennessee. I mean, look at this. I mean, you have the river. You

"That's what it used to be called. And we are in Knoxville and one thing that always happens when we come, we say hello to grant working the I mean, you're obviously a Tennessee football player, but that would not be doing justice to your world of entrepreneurial activities, but let's start with the football part of it, which has been like this week. You would think it's Alabama week, but you were referring a minute ago that it's for Tennessee, it's just another week. Another week and it's obviously been a blast to see the pomp and circumstance around the game. See, you guys come in town and game day coming down. But you know, I mean, heck, this is my 6th season now playing. And these games never get old. And I've played in 5 of them and this one just feels different, right? The momentum, the belief, you know, we're 5 O, ranked 6th in the country. And man, everything just feels right. I mean, third Saturday in October, beautiful weather. I thought really good feeling to be smoking cigar in that locker room the more night. Really good feeling. Let me stay on that because that's a major statement, there's been an urban legend reports about goalposts being ordered, which I know isn't true, but it seems like the cigars might be true. What was behind the scenes? I think I saw some goalposts. I mean, are the cigars already bought, or is that just they're ready to go, man? Oh, they are. They've been ready to go. We just haven't been able to break them in yet. At least 15 year old cigars are these new. I think at this point we had to get some new ones. I mean, I know you're not supposed to look at him, but you have carte blanche, nobody's going to come down on you, but do you, can you think about that moment? I mean, you've already been through it once, beating Florida was a big deal. Yeah. You know, you try not to, right? Because you never want to get ahead of yourself. But I mean, just with how many weapons we have with what coach hype is built here, I've just had such a good feeling about this one because we have so much belief foundation believes we believe. And you're just going into this game and the expectations, right? And what people's standards are, are completely different now than what they were 365 days ago, right? And it makes it more enjoyable for us when you're going out there and there's belief, you're playing loose and you know that we can actually go out there. You know, it's so cliche, but people I say, they put on their helmet and shoulder pads the same way you guys do. And it's true, right? Alvin doesn't special. At least I don't think so, right? But everything just feels right about this. Everything around the game, but getting back to the stage at this games on, like, you know, because you've covered it for filling. This is what the third Saturday in October is supposed to look like, right? And it's just so refreshing to see it get back so quickly with what coach will and the staff has done. I mean, you were here when it wasn't an outrageous comment. And I made it a couple of times. It just rivalry was turned into a joke. It wasn't. It wasn't a rivalry anymore. Right. It's been so unique because in just talking with so many people that have been around Tennessee football, whether it's fans, whether there's people in the building, you know, people kind of hate different teams. You know, you always hate Florida. You always say Vanderbilt or people that hate Jordan, there are people that hate Vanderbilt because it's in state. But just with the way games have gone in the last decade or so, your biggest rival is kind of shifted a few times, right? You have a newer generation of fans that really dislike Florida, right? You have an older generation that this game is the game you circle on the calendar every year, right? And just with, I guess, results have shaped up the last decade or so. We're coming back and we're wanting to make it the biggest game now, right? And it's just so unique to be able to get to play in these games. I mean, when you're at Tennessee, you're playing against Georgia, Florida, and Alabama every single year. And you could make an argument that every single one of those and it's each own way is a rivalry game. Yeah, and I don't need the wax poetic about old school because I lived it, but this was a different even when it was the top rivalry in the SEC. There was something that I think has gone missing with some of the other rivalries, especially Florida. I mean, there was genuine respect, fans got together. They went out together. That all the Alabama Tennessee hit the skids and the 2000s when scandal happened at Alabama and the finger was pointed at Philip Palmer. And it's never been the same since. Now, Alabama fans, I think, actually hate Tennessee. Tennessee hates Alabama. Yeah, and I wasn't a Tennessee fan, right? I mean, heck, I wasn't even alive then, right? When all that was going on. But you read the history of all of it, right? And you see the true hatred. Now with social media, it's exponential. You can see how it all shapes up. But just reading about the rivalry, some of these articles have come out this week about, what is the third start October? What's the history of it? And then going on Twitter and seeing Alabama fans talk about the game.

"The seminoles is they're getting Clemson with all the pieces finally coming together, Paul. We're going to get our first look at the Clemson defense in 22, with Xavier Thomas, Tyler Davis, Brian brizzy, all these future NFL D linemen are going to finally be together for the first time. And energized for the opportunity. So it's going to be a serious test. I don't think it's going to be a whole lot of points scored in this one. I think Florida state's chances to try to run the ball and win kind of a slugfest, but that's how a lot of games are in the ACC. You know, there's really not a huge margin for error, so it's just a mistake, ill time penalty, something like that is usually deciding games like this. Chris, I'd like to work the midpoint of the season and you seen pretty much not pretty much. You've seen everyone starting at the beginning of the year with the buckeyes and you've seen Alabama and you've seen Georgia. Is there any way to break this deadlock at the top that the pollsters keep struggling with every week playing musical chairs? Well, the good thing is we don't have to, right? Because they're all going to make the playoff. It looks like. To me, Ohio State's been the most complete team just because offensively there are no questions at all. CJ Sarah's playing in an incredibly high level. If you consider that Smith and Jake, I think it's the best receiver in the country and receiver play as massively important in the sport, hasn't even played barely four catches and they're still scoring 50 a game. Defensively they come around. So to me, Ohio State has been the most complete team so far, but obviously bam and Georgia looming and we'll see who that other team is going to be, whether it is Clemson, who would be favored to run the table now or Michigan, capable of getting in as a one loss team, but I think unfortunately it's still very top heavy this sport. There's still bunched at the top and I wouldn't have to be a pollster. I'm glad I gave up that vote a long time ago, but I think it's going to sort itself out on the field, which makes for a pretty nice bracket. You've been a long time host of the Heisman. And I realized in the middle of October, obsessing over the Heisman seems foolish, but at least the folks here at Tennessee feel like their man hinden hooker is finally getting a little bit of conversation, but you've also seen Stroud. Just talk a little bit about some of the quarterbacks you've seen some of the players you've seen and how that race is starting to materialize. Well, unfortunately, Bryce's injury turns it upside down. I think strat if you listen to Vegas is a huge favorite, but hooker's got his chance his moment, you know, right? I mean, the nation will be watching. You'd be in Alabama and you have something to do with it and you're a key guy in that. You can suddenly take a quantum leap into the conversation, then you need something bad to happen to Ohio State or Stroud. And listen, that could happen at any moment, right? Injuries can happen. Michigan can happen. I'm not handing anybody the trophy in October, but CJ's the favorite for a reason. Can I just digress Paul for one second because I'm sitting here in this place? Do you mind if I storytell for one second? I would love to hear it. Are you kidding? I have so many memories on this field of watching FSU Miami games, Seminole gator games, for the most powerful memory. I was just talking about this was the time that the late great Burt Reynolds. FSU legend wanted to fight me on that field down there. Bird had been convinced that I had made a joke on game day about his doors with Monte Anderson, pure mistaken it out. We didn't joke about stuff like that in the show. I could not convince birth that it wasn't me. He punched me one time in the arm backstage at the espys, like sucker punched me in the arm. So later, he and his college roommate corso and Herbert street and the bear were all watching the FSU game down here on the sidelines. I get a little too close to him. And he gets up in my face and says, you don't want to fight a 70 year old man right here on this field. And I said, no, no, Bert. You're right. I don't. Because I got two options, right? Paul, either either we get to fight again. I win. And I'm the villain, and I'm going to do my own version of the longest yard from the Florida state penitentiary. Or I get my ass kicked by a 70 year old guy in front of 8000 people. Those are two bad options. That's what we call lose lose. So thankfully, I don't know if it was somebody calm burnt down. I remained a Burt Reynolds fan to the day that he passed away, but that was just a weird memory. And it happened right down there. Among all the other good memories. I mean, was there any reason to suspect that corsair was egging him on or was this just the way Burt Reynolds rolled? I bet I said, I begged Lia, would you please ask your dear friend what is he thinking? Please tell him it was Lee, you were sitting there for every game day. Please tell him we didn't take a shot at lon Anderson on our show. But, you know, he Burt could not be convinced of that. And so, you know, it was a few. There was a Hollywood feud, Paul, I tell you. I tell you what though, Chris, I mean, I'm going back through the archives because the idea that somebody on game day. Now, by the way, that might change now with the current lineup, but I know back in the day when you were hosting, that would have never happened. We just didn't talk about celebrity divorces. We talked about a lot of stuff. That just didn't come up. Well, and nobody would poke fun at bird anyway. He is too iconic. Well, what a memory. Absolutely. That stadium of one of their more famous I would have been devastated if you had told me this later. I wish you would ask me about the fight with Burt Reynolds. Thank you for saving my day here. Chris, it's always great to see you, because you never know where it's going to go. I love a pause. That's what makes it fun. I wish I knew where tomorrow was going to go. But we all get to tune in to find out, won't we? Next week, we'll talk about Chris's near fight with Bill Murray on the set of college game day for this very game. Thank you, Chris. We'll take a short break. We are live in Knoxville, and we've got a

"Bit annoying. Actually, I think you might be accurate. You were on that O 6 team, right? No, I was not. Oh, okay. No, I just get confused on all the different teams that Roman played for that lost at Alabama. Wow. He's such an Alabama guy at heart. Roman Harper, Tim Tebow, we are off and running here. We are live from Knoxville, Chris Fowler was joining us in a few minutes. He's on Clemson and Florida state. He's been here a few times. Virgin will be here. The wide receiver. That's not all. That's just the first hour. We got a lot to do, including the Chancellor of the university of Tennessee. She will be here as well. Tod thought it would be secure to jog in the cheetah Savannah. Todd believed the big cat repellent he bought online was reliable. And now Todd is trying to be faster than this cheetah that can run 80 mph. But the good news is, Todd has AT&T 5G, it is fast, reliable, and secure, and he learned the best thing to do is stop running. And toss her the backpack with the beef stew. AT&T 5G, fast, reliable, secure. It's not complicated. 5G requires compatible plan and device 5G may not be available in your area. See ATT dot com slash 5G for you for details. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. So we had a little bit farther south to Tallahassee where Chris Fowler joins us. He's on the call tomorrow for Clemson and Florida state. And Chris, you corrected me during the break. I just imagine so many times you're sitting up here on hosting game day over 25 years at a Tennessee Alabama game and you quickly reminded me that was not exactly right. I don't think I saw those two teams play in Knoxville. I could be wrong. It was a lot of years, but we saw plenty of Florida Tennessee games there. I saw Tennessee play Bama, I really legion field, but I'm envious. I'm going to be a great scene. And I hope a great battle. I'll be

"Important. Whether he's great throwing the football or not. It's just about having that man in the huddle. What it means to you when Tim's in the huddle calling the play, the commander of the whole offense and team. He is that leader on that team and without him, I don't see them winning this game, not here, not right now. Guys, before you go and there's so much talk about the offense, but I'm interested in your thoughts Roman on Tennessee's defense, which you can pick out if you want, because it's all about the offense with them. But what do you see when you look at that side of the ball? I think they're much more improved. Everybody bangs and knocks on their secondary. I don't think their secondary is that bad. They're a group of veteran guys. They're in pretty good position a lot of the times. They just don't defend a couple routes well. And you know, I got a couple of tapes to show you guys tomorrow. You guys should tune in. But it would be willing to see an anxious to see how they tried these things trying to play out, but like Tim alluded to earlier, the pressure that they've been able to get up front has been surprising to me. And that's where I think that they've shown me that they have improved because I didn't think I thought the D line was going to be an issue. And it has not been an issue, especially last week versus you. They kicked their butts. And that was the difference. And just to be able to get one or two turnovers in this game, it would be massive to be able to get pressure on Bryce just to make him throw it away. Sup in the pocket. Just don't let him find that rhythm because he is so comfortable when he is able to take a 5 step drop step under the pocket, buy a little time and then he's so accurate, especially stepping up in the pocket. Don't let him get comfortable. Don't let him step up in the pocket. Get pressure right in his face and then see what he can do. And if he makes great throws, well you know what pat him on the back and you know that's what some of the best do. But man, at least get pressure on his face and make it hard on him. Quick, quick, final question here, Tim. Just we make so much out of stadiums. They're all different. They're all loud, but you understand the stadium better than most. How is this one different? It's loud. And when Alabama tries to go, no huddle, which I think they will, especially if rice plays in this game, it's going to be a lot harder to communicate. I mean, it's a 110,000 in whatever odd fans. And it is a loud stadium, and I think it'll be the loudest you've probably heard since 2006. It was a lot of stadium I played in when I played here, and they were mad because they said Brody Karl's knee touched, and he didn't, they booed for like three minutes. The only thing I got to say about this crowd is get over it. I am over it. They should get over it. But the biggest thing is the whole rocky top thing about 98 times. It gets a little

"Don't affect the game at all. Maybe a little, when there's a 110,000. Yeah, and the crowd will be great. You're going to affect the game, right? So the crowd, but they don't play the game. Yeah, they do. It's going to come down to execution and who plays the best tomorrow after. Who is playing in the game is what I want to know. And then I think another thing is, Tennessee hasn't been in this position in a really long time. No. And what I mean by that is playing in a game that isn't just a game where there's hype but actually really matters. Like honestly, since 2007, that was the last time they played for a conference championship and last time you thought they legit have a threat. And they are legit this year. And that's why this game matters so much. And it's going to be fascinating because what I really want to see earlier is how do they handle the magnitude of this game? Because you know it's different. You've played in super bowls. You've played in massive games where some teams show up in their prepared and you know band was going to be ready to go because I play in these every year. But how does Tennessee handle the magnitude and the pressure of this one? And they've only had one other opportunity like this so far and that's Florida. And they have a very well. But they also, but let's be honest. Florida. It's a big rivalry. So it's a big game. But the whole country is better. The whole country is watching this game. Tennessee is a much better team than Florida. And when you look at them, player by player, Alabama is probably the more talented roster. But Tennessee has played cleaner. They played better all year long. They haven't turned the ball over. They haven't had all the penalties in which Alabama has had. So if Alabama does not play a clean game. And that's including with Bryce young. They will not win this game. They must play a clean game, which means Alabama's got to play their best game that they've played all year long. So Tim, you're in the fraternity with Bryce young. We're just interlopers. What's the deal? What's going to happen tomorrow? Is he going to play? I have no idea. I have no insight, but my guess would be that he would play. I think an AC joint on your throwing shoulder is definitely hard to play. With it's definitely hard to throw with, but I have seen other guys do it, and I have played with an AC joint. For an entire season, it was on my non throwing shoulder. What's it feel like? I mean, again, a little bit different, but you know the painful. It's painful to lift your arm. Honestly, it's painful to lift it above your shoulder. It's painful to take hits on it. It's painful to fall on it. It's even more painful when it's your throwing shoulder and you have to let it rip. But I think that their training staff is really good. And he had an off week and I think he'll play. I think Alabama knows how big this one is. He will play. I would say he's going to play. You don't miss out on these games. This is why you come to Alabama. This is why you come to the SEC as the play in these big moments. These moments like this, it's also a great opportunity for both of these quarterbacks to have a somewhat early season Heisman moment. We've seen Bryce do it with Texas early this year. Hinden hooker has not had that solidifying Heisman moment yet. So that's what I'm looking forward to seeing is who kind of wins that battle. And for Alabama's defense, they got to stop Tennessee's run game. I don't think we give enough credit to what Tennessee is able to do. Running the football. If Alabama was able to stop Tennessee's run game with a lighter box, four or 5 guys in the box make henan hooker force hinden hooker to beat them throwing the football. I like to ask for Alabama. Let me ask you, I ask you this because Tim Tim's a clean player, you're an assassin. When you know the guy in the other team has this type of injury, I know these are things that nobody wants to say out loud, but in your position, if you're on the other side, does that change anything and I don't know if it changed anything, but I definitely want to test it out. I want to try and land on him. I want to try and if he's got that arm extended, I'm trying to tuck the arm and fall on him because that's how you really test out the AC joint. And it is a technique to it. If you want to do it, but I'm looking forward to it. In Tennessee, they don't care. They want to try and knock Bryce out of the game because they have a much better chance of winning when he's not in the game. Everybody knows that. And it's also important that Alabama understands that. That's why you need to run the ball a little bit more. Protect the young man early. Don't fall right back into the same trap of being a drop back team and allowing Tennessee to try and tee off on you. Yeah, I think to add to that, it is important to test it out. See how healthy is, but I also just think, as far as the game plan goes, Tennessee is a lot better when they're defense gets pressure on the quarterback. And Alabama is a different offense. When they got pressure against them, when they play Texas and Texas got pressure early, and the few times Alabama struggled offensively, I feel like it's because Bryce has been able to step up and he's had guys in his face, even the few drives against Arkansas that he didn't do play as well. It was because they got a little bit of pressure. And I think that's going to be massive. And Tennessee's been getting better throughout the year of getting to the quarterback. And I thought their best defensive performance, especially as far as pressure goes was last week against LSU. Tim, if young is ineffective or he gets, he's hurt and just has to come out. What's the situation in Alabama is in with millwork? Definitely a different gameplay. And I think you also have to have two game plans going in. You have to have a different game plan if milrow comes in a game. I think you need to have more zone read. I think you need to have more QB draws. You need to get him involved early with his legs if he has to play. Because he's a game changer with his legs, but we saw last week a little bit hesitant in the pocket, especially on third down. So I just wouldn't put him in those situations. And he's not as accurate or thrower. His guys were open at times. He couldn't hit them. And then other times got nobody was opening. Then he just had to run. So it is a completely different game plan. It's a completely different game. And if Bryce is not healthy, I don't see Alabama win in this game. I don't see how they do it without bright young. I think he's that

They are about as fired up as we can ever remember at least you guys can remember welcome to the program on a Friday afternoon, third Saturday, in October, straight ahead, Roman Harper and Tim Tebow both know a lot about playing a new and same good to see you guys. Let's just start with this game, Tim because it feels real. It is real. I mean, if you're gonna think about it from the Tennessee standpoint, this is a dream season so far, right? It is, if you're gonna say, what are the perfect things that could happen, leading up into playing Alabama? It would have been this season. You have so much momentum, you have a quarterback that's a Heisman candidate right now. You have all of the shows here getting ready for this game. There is so much hype. There's so much belief you're doing better in recruiting. You've had big wins at home and on the road. You're undefeated. Your number 6 in the country, and you get Alabama coming off a few major injuries. It's been the perfect start so far for Tennessee. I would second all that, Tim has hit on everything that's important coming from the Tennessee angle, but you also got to understand with all the hype all the excitement. None of these fans are playing. They do not affect the game. I wouldn't say they don't affect the game at all. Maybe a little, when there's a 110,000. Yeah, and the crowd will be great. You're going to affect the game, right? So the

"Work. And he's just like, dumping it. I mean, he's just. And then when he pulls out the Coke thing and just a little spritz, he's like, here you go, I'm like, thank you. Wow, yeah, that's all I need now. My two drinks went to they were like 5 or 6 drinks by the time it was done with that. So it was a good night. Nicely done. Hey, let's look ahead to Knoxville. Like you mentioned, because it's the only off week of the year for the Cup Series. There's like nobody on the list. You'd think a bunch of guys would be trying to do some dirt racing. Yeah, you would think, but yeah, again, off season or off weeks don't come very common this year. And I don't blame guys for not wanting to do any extracurricular racing right now. 150 laps, 75 miles on a half mile dirt oval and it's made of zuk clay. I looked it up. Okay. Well, that's a fact I didn't know about. So there you go. That's two things you've known this week that I didn't know. So there's that. I don't know what zook clay is, but that's what it's made of. You didn't go a step further and figure out what that was. I didn't care. That's okay. 7° of banking on this place. It's the sprint car capital of the world. You hear all like Kyle Larson and Christopher Bell always talking about Knoxville. This is the place. And the trucks are going to race there, holds 21,000 fans, place opened in 1878 as a horse racing track. We always talk about Martinsville as the oldest track. This has got to be the older track on the NASCAR schedule now. I know it's not Cup Series, but yeah, for sure. 1978. If I'm not interacting, I'm looking up with zook clay is that interesting? The first thing that comes up is a California soil resource lab. So that's kind of funny because you're based in California. Apparently they work on building or making this clay out of different slopes. I don't know what they have to do here. But yeah, so there is a specific Iowa black zip clay, which is found in the Iowa area. So I guess that's why it's at Knoxville raceway in Iowa. Wow, so science is involved. Yeah, it seems like that's the thing. All right. If you're into the national sprint car Hall of Fame and museum, well, that's right off turn two. Wow. That's pretty cool. And didn't Tony Stewart just getting ducted in that thing? Probably. I think he said something he would do. I think he'd gotten ducted like last week or the week before or something. All right, well, this is the spot. Okay, there it is. Let's take a look at the truck series point standings, time of jet ski is in 5th 45 back of the leader, then you got John Hunter Nemechek, Zane Smith, Chandler Smith, and Ben Rhodes is the leader by 5. That's incredible. Ben Rhodes, the champion last year, still leading things. It doesn't seem like he's had that impressive of a season. Until you look at the stage wins in the truck series, like my goodness, the guy can win him some stages. He has 8 stage wins already this year. Wow. And only 5 ahead. Yeah, the next highest guy only has 5. So there's a three point swing right there. But yeah, that's wild that he's got that many. That's a lot of stage wins. Yeah. I mean, he has accumulated a 139 stage points this year. The next highest is one 22 with John Hunter Nemechek. Nobody else has over a hundred. So he's getting it done in these stages, Ben Rhodes is getting it done. I am really glad being Father's Day weekend that they left us something to watch. Yes, because nothing is a bigger bummer than the whole thing being gone. Right. And I'll be watching some of this while doing the move and helping on Joseph shrigley at over here. I'm sure during some of it, but it is nice to have something. Because you got to have something to tune into. That they pick Father's Day is the big off week. They raced on Mother's Day, but not Father's Day. Yeah, I'm never gonna hear the end of that. 2022 will forever be the bane of my existence of my house because my wife will be like, well, they raced on Mother's Day, but they're not going to raise on Father's Day, huh? You think she'd be used to it by now. My wife is, she's like, you know what? I get it. So if there's a weekend, it's going to be NASCAR. Truck series and action this weekend and Knoxville as the series stands alone on Father's Day weekend Saturday 9 p.m. eastern on FS1. Boom. We got some rowdy dragon despite being a Cup Series off weekend. I didn't even ask him. He sent us a segment. I love that guy. Recapping Sonoma. I mean, he's the best. Which he was there, by the way. And man, that's his weekend. He was loved and had a camper, everything. He was telling me he was having a blast. That's excellent. We have him, no matter what, and he's gonna recap Sonoma.

"Was a step backwards from the gaunt brothers racing team, but now we're just two years not even full two years a year and a half later. He's the one laughing with a Cup Series win and that team looks pretty damned out all of a sudden. Definitely one guy was in his street clothes pretty early in the race. Bubba Wallace is getting interviewed. They're still racing. Yeah, that was a bummer he blew the engine on lap 9. Completed 9 laps blew it on lap ten, he was 96 points out of the playoff cutoff coming into the weekend. That's not what you want. A last place finish and a blown engine on a lap ten. That's not the way to get to your way into the playoffs. Certainly not. Absolutely. Pulse it or Kyle Larson. He was the winner from last year, led a bunch of laps, but later wheel fell off his 5 car. We're going to talk about the repercussions of that. I think we all know what those are at this point because it's been pretty much that's how it is. Daniels was checking out Expedia dot com for sure. Like instantly, I mean, he's got some time on his hands now. And then of course, chase Elliott, Cal artisan's teammate, the rogue course ace, we talked about this. He led a bunch of labs early in this thing, but pit outside the box and got penalized. Now fortunately for chase and his fans, so I know we're upset because this happened towards the end of the stage and he had to be penalized in the break between stage two and stage three, which sent him to the rear instead of doing like a pass through penalty, which would have made it where he would be like, you know, just a few spots missed at that point because it's a road course and things are strung out pretty far. But up until this year, the penalty for pitting outside the box was a one lap penalty, no matter what, no matter where you're at, right. So honestly, he got pretty lucky that that rule got changed in the off season. Oh, interesting, yeah, totally. They should have just, they should have sent the car back a little bit. He was just a little bit over the line. Well, that's the thing. And so they kept telling them back out back out back up and he did, and then they started working on it before he could get it all the way across the line. I don't know, it's a pressure packed situation for sure. Yeah, yeah, of course. And you can definitely talk about it afterwards and say, what were you doing? But at that point it was like, well damn, I'm sure they were thinking, we've already lost a lot of time. Let's just get it done. And we're thinking the full repercussions of it, but man, that was something. Let's take a look at the Cup Series point standings. We haven't done that in a while, but I figured, you know what, there's a break in the action. We're almost halfway through the year. Right, yeah, exactly. So with the break in the action, let's see where they're at and see where they're headed next. And all that stuff. I'll run down the first 5 and you run down the rest. We've got to Christopher Bell at number ten, then you got Alex Bowman with a win. William Byron with two wins, Kyle Larson with a win and Martin Shrek's junior in 6th, but he is winless. Yeah, but he does have some stage wins on his record. So at least he's got that going for him. But they're still rumors about whether or not he's going to continue on next year. So I think the longer we go without a win for Martin Truex Junior, that might play into that factor as well. So weird. Yeah, Joey Logano at number 5 with two wins. Ryan Blaney sent in a fourth. I can not believe the Ryan Blaney does not have a win at this point. He's been so good. I know on the all star race, but my goodness you'd expect him to have a points penguin by now. Totally. Kyle Busch, number three, with just the one win, which was kind of luck at the dirt at the dirt track of Bristol. It was kind of weird, but he's been kind of a factor in a lot of these races, just hasn't gotten it done. Ross Chastain with two wins this season. At number two, and then of course chase Elliott with just a few points at this point because things have kind of yeah, things have kind of sweltered and been kind of weird. What happened? Because at one point we were talking about him taking, you know, a vacation. He had a full race ahead. Yeah, well, things have kind of spiraled out of control form. Luckily, he had that huge lead because had he not had the huge lady being trouble right now, so he does still hold it, but it's a 16 point advantage over Ross Chastain now after 16 races tend to go until the playoffs begin. But yeah, so he's got one win as well, which came at Dover. But man, this is a tight battle all of a sudden, you look at how Roche Chastain's been performing. And now obviously he's made some people upset to this point, but he's been performing very well. You'll get chase Elliott. He's got a win and he has been running pretty consistently, but when you're running, you know, 5th to tenth, and you have issues, which he's had now for a few races. And the other guy who's running first to 5th is not having issues. That usually means the point advantage is going to swing the other way. Yeah, yeah, for sure. I just thought he had such an insurmountable lead and we were making fun of it for a while because he didn't have a win, but he still had that massive lead. Just shows you how quick this sport can turn around. For sure, and I feel like the broadcast team has not done a good enough job telling people about this regular season points battle because it plays into the playoffs. It's very important with the extra 15 point bonus for the regular season champion. Even if you don't have a race win, if you're the regular season champion, you're in the playoffs, so there's a lot to be had here. You got Ryan Blaney sitting forth. He's what? Just 25 points back. So if Ryan Blaney can work his way up to that point lead, if say we have more than 16 winners, Ryan Blaney is in the playoffs no matter what, even if he doesn't win. So this is a very important battle and it needs to be covered more. Definitely. Now up next for the Cup Series as we mentioned, they have an off week. They're in Cabo and other far off lands and relaxing and dipping their toes in the ocean and stuff. Then they got Nashville super speedway, 300 laps, 399 miles. That's going down Sunday. June 26th at 5 p.m. eastern on.

"You'd say that. But if we went through them, I'm sure we'd find something I'd go, ah, yeah, probably wouldn't want to do that again. You don't regret this last bull charge where you had the brain hemorrhage? No. Why not? It cause I'm okay now, and it was great footage. The producer side of me overrides the performer side of me. You know, I'm like, I don't know about this one in the producer size, like, we need the footage. I'm like, okay. It's a good take. Yeah. He's a good tape, then get that tape. Yeah, okay. Okay. I read that you've been going to therapy since like 2006. But that in all that therapy, you never allow yourself to talk about the stunts with your therapists. Right. Why not? I didn't want that part of me fixed because, I mean, this is what I do. Right? If I suddenly have an awareness of why I'm doing this, if I really get under the hood, I'm probably going to stop doing it. And I just didn't want that side of me fixed. And they respected that boundary and now I can get under the hood. What do you think would change if you did talk to your therapist about the stunts? Over the years? Yeah. Or even now. Well, and now it would probably be a healthy conversation, right? Yeah. But over the years, I just didn't want to mess with anything that was going to upset my role in jackass. So will you do it now? Is there a world after jackass what 4.5 where you're like, okay, mental health professional. I'm ready to talk about it. Yeah, I kind of have an idea of why I do what I do or did what I do. You have an idea? Will you tell me? Is it definitely has to do with, I think, self worth and in magical thinking and a pleasing aspect of me and needing that validation in thinking that maybe that's the only way I can get it. And I think I was addicted to doing the crazier stunts, honestly. There was an addiction there that I needed to be the guy to put everything on the line. And everything that came along with that sounds like you don't need the therapist. You're already there, man. Yeah, yeah, so I've reached the shore. So then this Johnny Knox will love today talking to me who has reached the shore and has perhaps begun to think about why you've been doing what you've been doing for 20 years. What would you tell the Johnny Knoxville just starting out 20 years ago? You know, I'm really good at creating chaos. On set. Right? And there was a lot of chaos in my childhood, fun chaos and some not so fun chaos. So I think I would pull young Johnny aside and try to be more specific where I created chaos. Because, you know. I needlessly created some along the way. Yeah. Last question for you because we're almost at the hour. I talk with your friend Eric Andre last year about his movie bad trip. And one of the big themes of that movie was that the average passerby, the average Joe out there in the world. They're good, and they want to help. And there's all these scenes where Eric Andre is out there acting a fool. And you see in the movie, everyday people are more than ready to help him and not laugh at him or hurt him or pile on. Right. And that was this beautiful poignant thing in this Lake crash prank movie. People are good, right? That was a big, moral of that story. And I know that you have said in other interviews, please don't try to intellectualize jackass. It's just stunts. I'm just doing stunts. But if Johnny Knoxville right now had to apply some bigger idea to jackass, some moral to the story, some universal truth about all of us that this show and these movies reveal. What would it be? It's not about the stunts or the pranks. It's more about friendship. And the relationship and the spirit of this group. It's absurd. And it's ridiculous. And it gets very dangerous. But there is a lot of heart that runs through jackass and I feel that that's why we still have fans to this day is people like hanging out with us and we remind them of the things they did in their childhood. So it's like, jackass is not only a family, our fans are part of the family. And we've done a lot of growing up over the years together. And I hope we keep growing up together. Yeah. I love that. You know, I'm watching the movie last night. There were these moments where these dirty men who had just almost killed each other, like smashed their penises like a pancake, or had a falcon meat off their genitalia, or shrunken milk on a roller coaster, projectile vomiting. And there'll be these moments after those stunts and those pranks were one of the guys will look at the other guys and just say, I love you. Yeah, and it's beautiful. And you are in this strange, beautiful way in the jackass cinematic universe. Your modeling a version of male friendship that is extremely pure and extremely loving without shame around it. And as one guy to another, I thank you for that. Well, that means a lot. There's a lot of love in jackass. It's not evident when you're just, but you sit back and think about it. Like all the things we talked about today, it's like we are 1000% inclusive in just, we love each other and you feel that and it's like all skate. This world, it's all skate, man. It's not them versus us, or it's like everyone's in this together. Sooner we figure that out, drop your petty. Yes. Thoughts or it's not love. Everyone's getting their smash. It's all left.

Well, and now it would probably be a healthy conversation, right? Yeah. But over the years, I just didn't want to mess with anything that was going to upset my role in jackass. So will you do it now? Is there a world after jackass what 4.5 where you're like, okay, mental health professional. I'm ready to talk about it. Yeah, I kind of have an idea of why I do what I do or did what I do. You have an idea? Will you tell me? Is it definitely has to do with, I think, self worth and in magical thinking and a pleasing aspect of me and needing that validation in thinking that maybe that's the only way I can get it. And I think I was addicted to doing the crazier stunts, honestly. There was an addiction there that I needed to be the guy to put everything on the line. And everything that came along with that sounds like you don't need the therapist. You're already there, man. Yeah, yeah, so I've reached the shore. So then this Johnny Knox will love today talking to me who has reached the shore and has perhaps begun to think about why you've been doing what you've been doing for 20 years. What would you tell the Johnny Knoxville just starting out 20 years ago? You know, I'm really good at creating chaos. On set. Right? And there was a lot of chaos in my childhood, fun chaos and some not so fun chaos. So I think I would pull young Johnny aside and try to be more specific where I created chaos. Because, you know. I needlessly created some along the way. Yeah. Last question for you because we're almost at the hour. I talk with your friend Eric Andre last year about his movie bad trip. And one of the big themes of that movie was that the average passerby, the average Joe out there in the world. They're good, and they want to help. And there's all these scenes where Eric Andre is out there acting a fool. And you see in the movie, everyday people are more than ready to help him and not laugh at him or hurt him or pile on. Right. And that was this beautiful poignant thing in this Lake crash prank movie. People are good, right? That was a big, moral of that story. And I know that you have said in other interviews, please don't try to intellectualize jackass. It's just stunts. I'm just doing stunts. But if Johnny Knoxville right now had to apply some bigger idea to jackass, some moral to the story, some universal truth about all of us that this show and these movies reveal. What would it be? It's not about the stunts or the pranks. It's more about friendship. And the relationship and the spirit of this group. It's absurd. And it's ridiculous. And it gets very dangerous. But there is a lot of heart that runs through jackass and I feel that that's why we still have fans to this day is people like hanging out with us and we remind them of the things they did in their childhood. So it's like, jackass is not only a family, our fans are part of the family. And we've done a lot of growing up over the years together. And I hope we keep growing up together. Yeah. I love that. You know, I'm watching the movie last night. There were these moments where these dirty men who had just almost killed each other, like smashed their penises like a pancake, or had a falcon meat off their genitalia, or shrunken milk on a roller coaster, projectile vomiting. And there'll be these moments after those stunts and those pranks were one of the guys will look at the other guys and just say, I love you. Yeah, and it's beautiful. And you are in this strange, beautiful way in the jackass cinematic universe. Your modeling a version of male friendship that is extremely pure and extremely loving without shame around it. And as one guy to another, I thank you for that. Well, that means a lot. There's a lot of love in jackass. It's not evident when you're just, but you sit back and think about it. Like all the things we talked about today, it's like we are 1000% inclusive in just, we love each other and you feel that and it's like all skate. This world, it's all skate, man. It's not them versus us, or it's like everyone's in this together. Sooner we figure that out, drop your petty. Yes. Thoughts or it's not love. Everyone's getting their smash. It's all left. Big thanks again to my guest, Johnny Knoxville. His film, jackass forever, is in theaters now. This episode of it's been a minute was produced by Jane west and edited by jordana hochman.

"If you're gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough. For the past 20 some years, Johnny and his crew have been offering up their pain for our entertainment. First on MTV, then in the movies. Is this the worst you've ever had to go boom boom? No, no. My pants at the fair. And Johnny's latest and perhaps best film. Jackass forever. Directed by Jeff tremaine. It opened at number one at the box office last month. I saw jackass forever, in theaters, and it took me right back to the before times. There's this moment early on in the film where I can already tell that I'm vibing with this woman like two seats down. She's with her boyfriend, but he's like afraid to laugh, but she wants to laugh. And I was like, girl, I will laugh with you. And there's this moment early on where we're both looking and we're like, huh? And she's like, huh? And I'm like, huh? And then I think we both say at the same time, oh my God, that Godzilla. It's a. And we both crack up. And it was so surreal. But my soul was just like, I missed this. I miss like connecting with the rando at the movie theater. And you gave me that, so thanks. Oh, that's great. You know, our movies are like that. Steve-O described is like, if you're going on a roller coaster, you don't want to sit on the roller coaster alone. You want to be on it with everyone else. And jackass is a roller coaster of a film. You feel a lot of different emotions during the course of a jackass film. Didn't I warn you? Explicit language all over this episode. Dear listener, it does.

"It's interesting to hear your positive story of growth. Your positive story of people and business is wanting to kind of and I'm going to compare it to another college town. And this is the sort of the emphasis I want to make. And I know you have the city Knoxville and those kind of things, but Athens Clark is sort of a combined government. But over the past four years and after this Clark county, it is basically turned socialist. And I'm not being a Republican exaggerate here. They actually identify as socialist. And they're wanting free busing, free housing. I mean, and you have the university of Georgia, which is the largest employer, everything in that county that is sitting there. And again, trying to say, look, we're trying to just make this here. What do we want? How has Knox county Knoxville area been different in a very similar kind of situation, smaller county with a large younger progressive base if you would. How have y'all avoided that or have you? Well, when you're looking at Knox county in the city of Knoxville, we're two separate political entities. And folks think that the counties over the city, and we're not. The cities, its own thing. Now there are some things that we do in the city, but that's very limited in scope. And the university is in the city of Knoxville. And yeah, it's exactly right. I mean, I love UT and I think UT ads tremendous value to our community. But there are some political differences. Especially. Within some of the faculty and within certain departments within the university. Now, what the university does for economic development is tremendous though. They have a great supply chain management program, which is a very beneficial here in Knox county, where 60% of the nation's population lives within a day's drive of Knox county. So logistics shipping trucking is a distribution centers are a big deal for us because we just naturally attract them. And then also when we look at their school of engineering, the ochres national laboratory, which is the country's foremost research institution is half an hour away. So there's a lot of synergy between the university and that organization as well. But politically, yeah, there can be there can be some issues. And like a lot of places what you see is we're like a donut and we're red on the outside and blue on the inside with the city. But the county is a lot bigger than the city. So we're about the county's 65% Republican. And the majority of the Democrats are actually in the

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason I know I've talked about amber alerts before, and they're very important and very beneficial at times. But I found because we live in Tennessee and we have multiple interstates running through Nashville. It's almost like you lose track of these amber alerts because they're going off all the time. Here in Nashville, we've got three major interstates, north and south, you got interstate 65, northwest to southeast interstate 24, and then from west to east or east to west interstate 40. And that means a lot of drug trafficking, a lot of people trafficking and a lot of amber alerts. We'll get amber alerts maybe three or four times a week about things that are going on just north of the border in Kentucky, somewhere over in severe Bill or in Knoxville, or Chattanooga over on the east side of the state, and you can't keep track. You want to believe amber alerts are good things, but I'm afraid that if you get too many in one week, you just lose track of them. The potential for the system is great, but I think they've got to try something different or fix something to make it that much better. Because I'll be honest with you every time an amber alert goes off, I tend to tune out now because I just heard one. Sometimes hours earlier.

Jackass Star Bam Margera Could Lose Custody of His Son

"Have you watched Bam Margera, the former jackass on his Instagram be it? Yeah, listen, if you're bored one night, just follow him and watch him become unhinged, repeatedly. He's really upset. He's not in the movie. A movie and a brand, he basically started with some other people. He's not in this one because of how many drugs he's been on and how impossible it's been to be around him. So the tough times for bam are not getting any better. Now his wife is asking for the custody of their three year old son, but she's not pulled the trigger on ending their marriage. That's a good thing. But if you've watched him on Instagram or listen to him, talk anywhere. I mean, how much can a woman take? So according to court records, Nicole boy, his wife filed documents the other day in LA seeking full custody of their kid Phoenix wolf. Of course, the name would be Phoenix wolf. It wouldn't be Tom Sean. It's Phoenix wolf. And she said, look, I'll give a band visitation, but only with a monitor. And I hope that monitor is not, you know, Johnny Knoxville, or Steve-O. But seriously, he can select the monitor he brings to see his son, and she must have proven it. But it's very interesting. You see, usually child custody issues attached to a divorce, but his wife made custody a stand-alone. She didn't follow divorce petition to end their 8 year marriage, and by the way, if you watch him on social media, she certainly has the right to do it.

"And a lot of putin wants the dawn bus. He wants to maintain crimea. He is going to continue aggressing there. And it's a war of attrition. what's what's happening is that putin has compared to a ukraine and compared to the the western forces that are trying to pull ukraine into nato putin has an unlimited budget compared to them and so putin can just keep putting armaments and troops on the border and just exhausting everything that comes out of ukraine and the nato forces want to have ukraine as of nato and nato wants to join or ukraine wants to join nato okay and this whole thing is about whose sphere of influence this little piece of land be in ukraine's or nato's the west or russia which is russia china the sino russo kind of connection there. And we're doing everything we can to bring them in nato. But the problem is nato has a clause in it that says no nation can join nato while they have an active conflict. Going on okay. So if you're in an active conflict can't join the alliance you have to join the alliance at a time of peace because the other allies are agreeing to defend you against future wars not to save your bacon in your or the ideas. You don't just join us when you're in trouble you join us and then when if you get in trouble where on your team. And so ukraine can't join. Nato can't bring ukraine in and so the un doesn't have authority there it's not a u n declared conflict and so it's it's literally the ukrainian government and whatever money they get from us or from other countries and whatever support they get because no one on who's not ukrainian can be a combat role there. That's support training advising other kind of role and The you know. They're going to be bled dry. And that's what's happening is that is that so much of the ukrainian economy is going into trying to maintain this war and It's causing unrest throughout the rest of the country and as that unrest spreads and the the whole country becomes more difficult it just enhances and strengthens putin's position that much more now. It's going to be interesting to see what happens there because the to speak of tony blinken. Tony blinken was the under secretary. For ukraine during the obama administration and tony blinken was very instrumental in bringing about the color revolution. That overthrew yana kovic and put poorer. Shinko in power. Okay and porsche was the guy prior twos alinsky guy. That's there now and so alinsky. When he got elected he wasn't supposed to be he wasn't our guy he was kind of the trump guy. He wasn't the the biden guy. he wasn't the biden. Blinken guy. You wasn't supposed to win. It was supposed to stay poorer shaneco because poorer. Shangqiu was pro-western right. They thought they wanted him to be the guy who helped ukraine move into nato. That was the idea. And now they've got this guy's alinsky there and it's a whole another deal so it's going to be interesting to see what blinken and those guys do because they know the ground they're better than than almost anybody and victoria newland is another person who at cape expecting to see pop up on the senior related to ukraine and ukraine policy She i don't think she's been joined the administration yet. So and we got on all that. From taiwan where the tony blinken is making. These moves that sound like the right thing. He's threatening china and the question on the table. As as as i said before digressed is what if anything would they do if china were to actually do something. Aggressive was the biden administration. Really going to Are really gonna send aircraft carriers more are really gonna launch planes off. Those aircraft carriers are really going to defend. Taiwan So the chinese foreign ministry spokesman Came out he says that the us worships that are there are engaging in provocations and send a serious wrong signal. the forces of taiwan independence and Says that we're the ones threatening. He's instability and He asked if a chinese warship would go to the gulf of mexico to make should go to the gulf of mexico to make a show of strength. And so this is. There's a lot of saber rattling going on and i. I don't know what's going to happen here. Guys but i i know that xi jinping wants taiwan i think jinping knows. He can't have taiwan any other way than by force. And i think that he's going to use the force. He needs to use to get taiwan at.
