Two slugging will now. We've added a couple more days of three more days of data to those numbers. Still the two fifty two average on base down a little bit at three twenty one. But slugging up to four thirty five so at three twenty weighted on base average since the all-star break here across the league and that big uptick in slugging percentage is what i'm really focused on here for. Today's show as we know. The strikeout rate is down the stretch outrageous down quite significantly since that spin rate. Crackdown to hold a with the foreign substances.

You know, like the like the sauce anyway, His name was Bearnaise. He wrote a book called Propaganda. But before that, he spoke about it. He wrote about it and Propaganda wasn't a bad word back then. And so what? And so Wilson decided to use him and Some of the surrogates. Propaganda. For what he wanted to do in World War one, the League of Nations race and the rest of it because Wilson One of the founding fathers of the so called Progressive movement was a racist in the sensation ist who Resegregated, the military And he supported the Klan.

You're constantly traveling. You know the thing that you're most people are worried about the least. Our politics on less politics are interfering with you. Being able to do your sport and so i would see it except for these top elite level extremely popular and successful athletes when it comes to money I would say the vast majority of athletes not looking to boycott The olympic simply because they put in so much time and effort and sacrifice just to try and make it to that single race. I don't see a boycott happening. Although i do agree with some of your points on an athlete's perspective I wouldn't support it all right. That's fair listen. Thank you for calling i.

Come twenty twenty two in stan greenberg. Democratic pollster is picking up the warning signs for the democratic party. Believing the media. Never believe your own press right now. The american press corps is the democrats press and the democrats are believing it wholesale there believing the propaganda while the republicans have done what they've united the party across trump anti-trump lines. They have found that voters are voting out of cultural concern and fear for their lives over. Defunding the police and economic protection jobs and that voters black white asian hispanic really hate the woke bs. They genuinely voters despise the racist politics of the democratic party. Voters have for years been told judge each other by the content of character not the color of skin and now the woke white elite of the democratic party or tell them no skin colors what matters and they know it's not true. You have the left pushing children to go to anti-racists camps where the white kids are told their oppressors and the black kids were told they're oppressed and the voters. They're not down with it. They see those same people. Burning the streets down across america and the left say well their fiery but mostly peaceful. They see the democrats wanted to back terrorist group in israel.

"They have continued. They have sustained themselves. They have mobilized they have engaged. They won and now they're ready for a break in. This happens to whichever party wins while the republicans having lost or further energize to win it all back and so they will rebound in the mid term. But there's a little bit more to if you go back to two thousand nineteen in two thousand twenty. The media did a series of fawning profiles of nancy pelosi. Nothing pelosi did could go wrong. Everything nancy pelosi did was brilliant. And we should have. More people like nancy pelosi. That was the media characterization. When nancy pelosi was obstructing checks when nancy pelosi was refusing to walk away from the progressive members of her caucus. The media thought it was all good. The media thought it was all right part of the media's problem is that they're in a democratic bubble and then gives the republicans a latent advantage because the democrats can't see what's coming nor can the media so for example right now as i mentioned earlier in have mentioned repeatedly the democrats are obsessed with the liz cheney donald trump fight because it highlights for them a division within the republican party a necessary division. They are renewed in their obsession with cunanan to paint the republicans as a crazy fringe. They are fixated on donald trump. At all times. I wanna keep you in the headlines because they know that a lot of voters don't like him and all of that. They are convinced. The republican party is dying in about to crack up. It is conventional wisdom now in washington. Dc in the media and the democratic party that the republican days are numbered due to internal fights and the division of donald trump show to fire up their base. The democrats say let's go full left. Let's inspire a progressive revolution in america. Let's let's go woke. let's go for broke back. The palestinians defunding. The police rearrange The values and priorities of america. Punish stay at home.

Different will get to what i was going to talk about. Black lives matters of course citing with a terrorist organization. Hamas will get there. But first josh crash. Our national journal has this. There are two different ways to judge. President biden's political standing. After i four months in office one could rate. His average approval rating of fifty. Three percent is healthy given the backdrop of political partisanship in the country in his predecessors inability to ever hit the fifty percent mark or you could assess it as underwhelming given that biden overall popularity ranks near the bottom of modern presidents and is poised to decline further amid a rough stretch of news. A newly released poll from the democratic firm corps survey battleground states and congressional districts. Lynn's fuel to the more pessimistic outlook for biden and congressional democrats conducted between april twenty-seventh and may third the survey finds that republicans are tied with democrats on the generic congressional ballot. In swing states and districts. I am if you missed it. This is from stan. Greenberg respected there were gonna pollsters say what you will about pulling but when stan greenberg does a poll that is a democrat poll on behalf of democrats and it finds bad news for the democrats regardless of the accuracy of the poll. You should pay attention. Republicans are showing more enthusiasm for their party. The percentage of democrats showing the highest level of engagement dropped from eighty five percent just before last year's election to fifty seven percent of this survey by contrast sixty eight percent of republicans. Say they're still highly engaged compared to eighty four percents before the election. Far from being a divided party wins look awfully united behind donald trump sprayed populist culture war driven politics the purging of outspoken trump. Critics like liz. Cheney from party is at dissuading traditional republican for maintaining their partisan affiliation in these battlegrounds republicans are holding onto more than eighty seven percent of the non trump conservatives a constituency more skeptical of the former president. Which is five percent defecting to democrats a clear. Majority of moderate republicans are also sticking with the party for next year was just thirteen. Percent preferring democrats republicans are also holding onto the softest part of their coalition while maintaining the enthusiasm of the trump base on this competitive turf biden's job approval rating is at forty nine percent with forty-five disapproving but the intensity of support or opposition tips the scales towards republicans. Thirty three percent view the president very favorably while thirty eight percent unfit very unfavourably. He's losing ground with independence. Thirty five percent of swing.

"Because so much of what donald trump said and did on the campaign trail was to say. These things will happen if joe biden becomes president of the united states. And guess what they're all happening. They're all happening. Donald trump if he were to run in two thousand twenty four could run on a see. I told you so campaign. I don't think leaving. Donald trump in the forefront of people's minds right now does much good because one voters realized. He's not president and to They see the woke. They see the riots. They see joe biden they see and fuel the crimewave and the inflation and donald trump's not there. This is all under joe biden. The media's desperate to help joe biden through this. I think it actually hurts. Joe biden concurrent to this major headlines today. Let me read you. The wall street journal report. The new york attorney. General's office investigation of former president. Donald trump's business now has a criminal component. A spokesman said tuesday night joining the manhattan district attorney's office probe and expanding a months long inquiry that until now had been focused on civil fraud. We have informed the trump organization that our investigation into the organization is no longer purely civil in nature said fabian. Levy a spokesman for the attorney. General's office we are now actively investigating the trump organization in a criminal capacity along with the manhattan. Da the manhattan district attorney's office is conducting an investigation into possible bank fraud and other potential crimes separately top local prosecutor in the atlanta areas. Probably whether mr trump improperly tried influence election officials last year the trump organization did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the investigation which was reported earlier by cnn. Now question Is this actually true. You have a spokesman coming out and saying so so possibly it is But saying there's a criminal probe if you're a prosecutor looking into this sort of stuff of course there's going to be a criminal element to it. This really is it. News per se but the media courses gravitating towards it. I do however think there's something else going on here. The democrats have internalized orangemen bad. The democrats fundamentally believe that donald trump is the villain.

"Cunanan is back at the forefront at a time the house democrats are pursuing a january six commission and it is of universal acclaim in the media outside fox that it is necessary and republicans are obstructing the truth and how dare those republicans you got andrew collide making his kind of dumb statement about tours in the capital in the picture comes out of him Blocking the doors of the house so they can't get in there. That was a unforced. Error on his part The media of course is coming after him. These are all distractions. They are designed to keep the discord within the republican party at the forefront as discord within the democratic party is growing they are designed to keep the issue in front of voters because november twenty twenty. Two is a long time away. They are designed to try to turn voters off to the gop as a way to forestall voters being turned off by the democrats. Who control everything in washington. There is a media obsession for a party in washington. Dc they have declared is dead and dying and controls nothing. We haven't had cunanan the news for months on end and suddenly a we're back to cunanan. Npr donald trump is not on social media. He's largely out of sight out of mind and suddenly. He's back in the news fulltime on a daily basis If not the liz cheney. Donald trump fight it's the Donald trump is going on vacation to new jersey fight and argument and coverage and nonsense from the media. This is all about voters. This is a well orchestrated plan by the media. I don't know that the average members media even understands how they're being played about at the upper echelons of the media and the democratic party. They do completely believe the more they can keep. Donald trump at the forefront of people's minds the more they can keep queuing on at the forefront of people's minds the better it is for the democrats. Now why is that. There's a lot of showing that your average voter doesn't particularly care for donald trump. in fact if anything. This is kind of a sign that the democrats are finally clued in on the fact that they did not have a great election night other than joe biden winning and they did so they didn't have a night because of the defunding police boom and the left wing agitation in the country but also donald trump had a bad night because he was on people's minds and people generally didn't care for donald trump. You may like donald trump but the average voter decided they were tired of him. A potentially starting world war three on twitter so guess what twitter and facebook band. Donald trump from social media. He loses he goes away. he's nowhere to be seen. he's not tweeting. The media can't report on his tweets. They they've got having they gotta having for their ratings donald trump in arguably helped the media's ratings and they've got him they think dealt the democrats as much as you can focus on trump and cunanan liz cheney you are helping the democrats so the media. I don't actually think they're right..

You know, and you know sometimes it's it's really really really I mean it's usually really really fun. It's just when you see someone like. Scratching their eyebrows at you, you know in the front row because of like my non take on big graphic design or my. Sort of like me, not take the bait on something and making fun of it, you know. I'm never going to call one out now. I mean don trump's different, but I don't need to go up there and bashing fell designers I've never done any of that shit. Whatever you know, but the thing is is like you know their stories, their stories, you hear one thing, and then you react, and here's how I applied that reaction to my life, and here's why it was good and there you know I don't know it's a weird I'm proud to do. It's fun to do it's you know it's fun. Fun, to go places, it's funny. Get on a plane. I get a lot done on the plane. You know I get a lot done just going back and forth and I like going to that town. Because then you know Mike Treat in Los Angeles last week. Was I got to go to one record store? You know that was cool and we hit a couple other things that we wanted to hit my girl, but you know she did a couple couple of for things saw some of her friends. And I did my job, and you know met a bunch of people and you know heard stories from. All over the world from Romania. All kinds of people you know and they're. get nervous that they don't even know you know like Like if they even speak. Kind of English. Of those kids? This is kid from Finland. He spoke better English nice. And yet you know it was really cool, man. You know so I. Don't know I really like it. It's it's fun it's been. It's not the big shows. It's the little ones. The little ones are have been really really really cool because. I went to a little school at Minneapolis, but they had big budget. They bring some cool people. What happens when you go to a shitty little school with no budget I go to a lot of those. You know because I'm one of those kids a lot of ways. I like to go I love to go share with those guys say hey, this is what I do and how I do it. It's no big deal Well. I know you said in the beginning who are a little nervous, a little scared about being on the stage and looking at people and talking about your work, but. Obviously you've overcome that, but. A moment that you can point to to say you know what I might be on to something that the story that I'm telling is connecting with people and I enjoy doing that and I think I should do more of that. I've had kids come up to me and tears, wow! And like they're like you know what. I was always told I was going to do anything about this shit and you showed me that you can be anything you want my only in your basement. But you can do it. You know because I. have to tell them go whatever you want. You have to make sure that you know part of that. Read the Hell you want is. How do you pay your bills? You know, let's just say that you never get to apply the thing like what's your favorite thing to make with graphic design on asset to a group of kids in there a couple of hands ago. And I'll say okay. Let's say you never get to apply that to how you pay your bills, so what? You still we're doing what you WANNA. Do the funny part about this is on dribbles and things and stuff and you know. TUMBLERS vowel shortages. How come future has no e? There's no listen the future. Skies, was there a Typo? Joke? Just, so you know. I I've had kids who are moved and I've also had kids. Come to me and say you know what you're discounting graphic design by being sort of like you know and I'm like you missed the point man. You are missing the point you wanNA, work, big go work. Pick see how that goes for me. I saw tasted it. Not that cool, you know. People come up to our threatened to you. Know but really the main thing is. It's got to be fun. It's gotta be chill. I love talking about working for. My buddies or something small. That was risky. That turned into something. Really really cool. You know because that does apply all of us. You know and too many times. It's the guy up there talking about the big, the bigger the biggest, the biggest where they want to go with the could have done. You know what I. Mean Right but. Like. I'm more conflict is to go up and not even show my work and just talk about how to think about this ship and gets a little weird like some kind of motivational speaker. She and I I WANNA show shift from the front lines. Here's how I solved something. Ban there you go. And that was there wasn't a penny and bolt. Here is something. That was a big job and here's how I solved. You know because that's a different thing than working for your Buddy I. Get it now you have to have you know nicer, e mails and an. Going to meetings and you know business. You know whatever you know your your. People always say it'd be but wait a second. You know when you open up your folder.

"Like I'm not doing allow new client work, even though it's my name or whatever you WANNA call, it gets a little bigger people coming after me and I'll stop them and say you guys. I'm working on a record now. From my buddies, heavy metal band, there's not a penny to be made, and they are. Put me through, and I love it so I'm just not the right guy because feel taken off to where it's at and the speaking in the Merch in the merge sales and the book was did really really well and. It's all shit. That wasn't supposed to happen. You know yeah, and then like. I have to be kind of careful. I don't want to go and take on way way way way way more. You know because there won't be any time less. I there's there is a balance to be struck, but. I can appreciate Your Dad's saying that you know you take care of your dad. I do well. He's taking care of all. He's been retired for many many years. So yeah, it's all it's all worked out, and would would you? Would you dad do grown up? You know we are first generation immigrants from Vietnam and so he when we came to this. This country didn't speak. The language doesn't understand the culture. So the very first thing he did was bus tables and telling us a story. I said that your waiter. He said no I wasn't a waiter. I didn't even speak the language, and then eventually I was bartending, and they saw that I can make some drinks and so eventually he wound up at. A. Gigantic Semiconductor company called applied materials in Silicon Valley, so he went all the way from being a guy who bus tables to being an engineer. A working on some super complicated stuff? so that's what he wound up doing, and my mom wound up working for IBM doing designing drafting things, so they're both in the kind of tech space. Yeah Yeah. Man Wow from Vietnam. Yeah so some of the things that I'm doing. That's why I asked you this question about. Your, parents understand what you did and do they encourage it because there's a lot of graphic designers out there are people who want to pursue I don't I'm not gonNA say art, but graphic design, and it seems just as might as well be fine art. It might as well be ceramics or something like that. Sure sure. I understand testing you overcome, and luckily they've they come on board like when when you become successful, it's hard to argue against that right and. What, if my mom and dad? And I? Have Buddies here in town. The Mom and dad say what do you mean you know? We want you to be a doctor or dentist? You know and I. Know Those pressure systems like you know man. We watch cooking shows. The parents are super hard on them. You know and it comes from like like they're always talking always breaking down and always saying. Like I disappointed my mom and dad when I became a cook, but now when they see me with my own restaurant like there's like some patterns you see there, you know. Yeah, and my mom and dad wanted me to be this I understand why because those are paths to security you know I. Don't think I don't think that's only mutual to you. Know this kind of people or something whatever you know I remember. My mom got having one foot in. Both you know Aaron. You're going to have to making living. I remember them, you know. My Dad explained that to me the first time I broke my skateboard like. These. We can't go pay sixty five more bucks. You know every two weeks You're going to have to have pizza job. And that was my first job. You know and it was thirteen years old. But it was this weird thing where it was like. I know other kids, the MOM and Dad. Just they just go. Grab it for him. And we, my dad just explained to me. This is how it's going to be I remember when I started to snowboard him explaining me like first of all, this is rich. People stuff. Okay, so you understand by going to a resort and Koukoulas to can resort, but we did. We were growing up. We were we. We saved our money and we would go out to someplace you. Do you think we wanNA live in Vail? We never could, but we'd go for a week and was like this luxury for us, and we would go, but here's how you are going to do it. You know and explain to me. But there would be the same push to say go out. And pursue these things, but you've got to be. That's. Designed because it was one foot. In the fine art. One Foot in the pragmatic you know and. We have to make a living. You know you have to make a living. But yet doesn't feel like something that was like. The Hook was dangled in just a good solid job job job. This guy's dangled big jobs in front of me branding jobs and stuff, and then you know like these head hunters. She's like you understand. You were GonNa make a hundred and fifteen thousand dollars a year with a possible twenty thousand dollar bonus Aaron said. Well. I made two hundred and forty grand last year. She was like what like she's discount just discounted it. You know like you. I met you. You said You'd never know this. I did you know some jobs? One hundred bucks some jobs for ten grand that shit starts to add up. You know and I did like one. There's a one year. I could fifty seven logos Oh. My God well I. Mean You have to understand? Forty, seven of those for your buddies. are whatever or like someone with a thousand bucks or fifty hundred bucks, but that's still fifteen hundred bucks. And I do the job for three grand probably about two months ago. I remember thinking well. That have to out quit bitch about having all that nice cable that we have. The hate pain, the three hundred, a month or two, hundred and forty, five, a month, or whatever but man. We have good Internet good cable and leak and watch all HBO's. I rarely watch those ones. I'm more I like deadliest catch. I'm hooked on. You know but A. You know like in that moment. I got a call him Friday for three grand. No on something done by Monday ish. You know a Saturday morning. I paid for premium cable for a couple of years. That's still how my mind works stuff, and that comes from my dad. You know okay. You know my first summer out of school high school. and. All the kids were going to all the festivals and troy in Chicago going down traveling's and he was like. You even have to go to some of these things that he said but. There's GonNa be some weekends. We are not allowed to go, but that's okay, because you're setting yourself up for this you now. You have some kickable to all that shit. You know, 'cause I I would go up to Alaska and make money. and. You know it'd be bummed around here. My friends have these awesome summers down in. You know the the West or In the Midwest or New York City, or whatever it wasn't here, I wasn't Alaska and I was missing the playoffs in a beautiful place..

"Underdog story is the thing that resonates because people see themselves in you. You're the version of them that they hoped to be in years, and you're not so far away that they feel like. They can't change that dream where you have these big design wigs like Michael Bay rules or Polish, and they seem to be too far away from us, and it's inaccessible. You come out on stage. You wear your trucker cap. Cap Your Jean Jacket. You talk about not wearing pants. Talk about your dog, your mom and dad old. You are the town you live in and just being all kind of rough around the edges, and that's what people relate to. They can see that, and then you do something that they hope they can. Do you know you're working on Lagos? You're working on cool projects for snowboarding skateboarding. That kind of stuff and That's an instant access to all these young kids that are coming in and I saw on your book You did the sketches for I think one for Santa. Cruz skateboards and the one was for Santa Monica Airlines were not as Culpas I. had that exact same skateboard so that the entry point? It just feels so familiar like you're one of us I'm not saying me, but I'm just saying the young kid saying God here's here's the people's champion. Wow that's a hell of A. Supposed to say that like a no. We stop say things. Like I remember when I put that those where I'm emulating Jim. Trying to re basically copying his work. You know I had to show that is how do you learn how you learn? How lines work and colors and stuff work? That's how I. Mean I'm so thankful? I learned it through like a wild ass, skateboarding and stuff it just was so beautiful to look at it and I love to show that, and then you could see my little versions of it. You know as the years kind of you know go, but. You, know it was scary to show that because I've had kids come to me and say. I own that deck. You did that work tunnel. No. I'm just I'm just learning thirteen years old, you know. What I mean, that's really cool to hear. Man I would I would hope that people just. See what I do and they dig it. You know the thing is is. You know. I went to a nuff heights. I saw the heights. You know. I saw them I met people from them. It scared me and I just pledged I'm not even interested. You know if that's the big leagues I want nothing to do with it and I will say. Michael Beirut is one of the sweetest guys ever met. I was kind of afraid to meet him because I just know how big is and this and that, but he has a Cleveland guy in on when you meet him, he's just you know he was. He wrote me one of the greatest letters about my dad when my dad. I don't know Michael Beirut, when I saw that coming, I was like. Is there another Michael Bay route you know, of course it's. And when I got to meet him I got to say thank you. That was such a nice let. He wrote me a letter and. I I'm a fan. You know and and Paul Scheer. She was very warm, and very down to Earth, but very frenetic, just got a lot of people working for her and stuff, and you felt that you know my two seconds with her to get a self year. Whatever the hell it was because you know I'm a fan. I'm a fan and she. At least you know she made so there have been a couple. You know where I'm not only to air dirty laundry. Some people would come up to you know who were. Not mean they just didn't have this. Don't give a shit what you do. They don't know who I you know what I am or what I do they just you know I, mean they're they're? They're busy and and that's fine. You know I, mean I, I, don't know it's just a weird thing. Well, the People's champion Holy Shit. What am I? What I? What I what I? You know you can. You can stay small. With your jobs and your stuff and still make a living. and. We need to hear a little bit more that because that's not really what the pecking order sort of dictates. You know you've got to get to the big job a big thing and I just remember being in the one job i. had whether like you know? Hierarchies and I've only had one job. You know and it might have just been mutual only to a specific only to that that environment or that group of people. But you know who was leaving at five every day. Well, it was your you know. The junior designers relieving at five I was still there late at night. You know and the guy above me. He was there even later, and that's just. That's kind of how people work, and that's the working styles are different. There's nothing really wrong with you that that's how you know. If I if put another way, it's like that's how someone gets ahead. But I was still. I was there late late late and i. just remember thinking like like I'm not getting any more salary thinking that. I'm just doing a good job. You know being a good little worker. Why would I put this time into making my own life and own brand in my own little go at this stuff, and that's where I really shifted gears like I I have the energy. I still have the energy to work late, you know. But instead of doing it for someone else who basically reaps a bigger reward, and that's called business that's called business. You know you know I remember I made a really good salary and when I put my month into leave. Suddenly, they found thirty or forty more more grand to give me until like entice me and I was like. was that forty grand I was working late last bunch you know whatever now here's the deal and it's not just the place that worked for. Places are going to pay you just what they can. And that's called business, but when I got free and I got out of that stuff. I could stack all the little shit and the other sneak attack was this I was doing with.

"Maybe it's ten years ago. Thing when you know you didn't have didn't take a lot to buy a little house. You know that's that's all gone rain the last three years. That's all that's all done, and and it's a bummer, but you can still come here. Get a good job and get a house. Sure, but the idea of the roadies buying a house anymore. That's gone and I I. I hate to report it and I hate to even talk about it, but it's just a weird thing to me. Because I love this town because a road could have you know a house if that's making even if that's making sense like it wasn't just the the guy who you know. The the hero of the band got to own the shit right now. Everyone had a little piece, and that's why I loved him. It scared me to be down. And so cal when I worked there, it scared me because you know man, certain terms I I had no path of how it was GONNA make it. You know what I mean I had no path. There was just like you know just just I mean. How do people get to buy some big house there I I? Still don't know you know 'cause I have buddies who are successful by any stretch. However you want you know, term it. But they they'll be renting the rest of their lives. And that's just I couldn't handle it. I mean if people are into that. There's nothing wrong with that. It just scared all right, so I might theory on this and you're totally right. It isn't an expensive frigging place to live for sure. But. I was listening to a piece. I think it was on. Radio lab, and they were featuring some other show and I can't remember the name of that show, but they're talking about how this American spirit of you know. If you work hard, you can make it. And then they started to do the study, and it was determined that where you live is more of a factor of how successful you're going to be than anything else so people who are living in metropolitan cities. Where there was a lot of room for upward mobility, they tended to better whereas people who lived in. The inner cities where there wasn't a lot of economic prosperity going on, it made it a lot harder for them, so my theory is this because we have friends and people, we coach all over the world and I. Don't want to come to La just. Like my small market and I said that's totally cool, but here's the thing. Here's the wonderful thing about living such an expensive place. Is You meet a lot of people who are really entrepreneurial risk taking and they're? They want to build something. They want to build their dream. No matter what it is whether it's an entertainment or any other industry, and so we get these chance encounters that are part of just the the network. Network that you build up now. That's very corporate speak. I'm sure all your fans room. What the Hell is he talking about? But that's where I get to go and meet literally I mean I've had meetings now with billionaires sitting in the same room in my office, and I'm like Whoa. We're breathing the same air. We're still the same people and I don't know if this would happen. If I lived in a tiny little town. And so that helps to pay for some of the expenses. You incurred living here in real estate is the most expensive thing out here. Yeah Yeah. Yeah I. Can't sit ever sat in a room with a billionaire so. I, mean I. Don't I don't know I. I'm a thousand Air Man? That's all I'm concerned about. I'm just I'm serious. I'm GonNa ruin with those guys. That's fine. That's fine I'm not concerned about who's you know who's got it? Or who does? It was just a such a fucking? Reminder down there that you'll never had it. You know it's a big reminder like this big. How how I? Don't know how these people got this thing, but we were looking for great. You know doctors I don't even know your real estate, people, or whatever and you know. Now. Now here you know. In fact I'm going to stop because I, it's just such a weird thing that our little town is like. You know it's changing a lot. It's changing. It's just you know an and I think you know if I had to pick all the cities again now. Why picked Portland's? Because it was small and it was crusty and it was. I'M NOT GONNA. See Real everywhere is real. You know no here. Was this a little bit less of a pressure system? Yes, we didn't have light rail or we didn't have this or we didn't have that. We didn't have the cooler. We didn't have the culture whenever who gives a shit about any of that. You know if you're sitting in traffic all day trying to get to it. That's just weird, right? You know when I went to L. A.. About in the fall. I did a talk and four hundred people are as vp and I was like kind of terrified, because that's a lot of people. and. Two hundred showed up, which was still incredible. Big Show, but you know. I remember being told like that just kind of a Los. Angeles thing man people you know the get done with work, and then after drive two hours get somewhere. They're not going to go. You know even though they got their ticket or whatever it was not even think there was even their even really paying tickets was just get your seat, you know. which was just sort of like? Yeah, that makes sense you your cross town and it's GonNa be a long way to get there and you know I mean I don't know. I'm learning like it more and more when I go down there. I'm learning to see you know when I was a kid, and went up there at Twenty, seven or twenty eight years old, and would go up there, and you know had to pinch every single penny you know it was really tricky I'd have to make decisions and say. I can't take this toll road. Like I have to go. You know whatever and it's just like. Man. I just remember having a check myself many many times and say I have no idea what it's like to deal with some rough. Shit. I'm lucky I had a good life growing up with a Mama. Take Ali. Sorts of things are good, mom, and dad and structure and. You know some highs and some lows and I'm worried that what I have to sit in a little bit a traffic man I mean. This is a very interesting place. You know very fast a little too fast for me, yeah! A buddy of mine came out from Richmond and he swore he'd never been La. We hung out to go on. A hike wants to eat a couple of places. Hang out a little bit and showed around town, and and he fell in love, and now he's out here. He's working for me. Now moved out uprooted. His family moved out so maybe next time you're in town. If you have the time. If you got nothing to do, and you've got an afternoon to kill, we can hang out and I can show you around. And I I love it. Here I'm originally. Lived up north in in in San Jose and came down to go to school, and it just slowly migrated. West says my budget allowed. You know I did it, but you know if you don't mind, I'd love to just tell you what I see in you that. I think other people see, and maybe you can say or no I don't think so totally I'm you know I'm I'm telling? You because I. Got So. Here's what I think I think. Coming from inside of you, this is this true authentic person that there isn't another version of you and we all kind of wear. These different masks that we walk around with I think that small town accessible..

"You'll be I. It's all kind of like money based stuff you know when I went out West as a kid nineteen, my mom and dad didn't really cut me a check. It was more like well. If you'RE GONNA, go do this good luck. You know we support. You have our blessing but there. There's ever been big bank account to tap into and. So appreciative all these years later is because I didn't need any of that Shit, you know. They had already taught me how to think creatively and taught me how to Ask Them for help if I needed help I. mean and usually it was like you know my dad helping me change brake pads or something over the phone you know I had buddies who had a mom and dad who you couldn't approach or when I was over there to hang out with the buddy, their mom and dad. Would kind of grill me. You know what my parents do. What I do or just. GonNa. Say you know. Why are you parking in the driveway? You know what I mean. That was the extent of someone sort of interaction with me. My Dad wasn't like that. My Dad, my mom and dad were warn people and make you a sandwich this. I'm just really thankful for that. And you know over the years. I would use my dad to sort of make fun of and. And mess with my travels or bring him out here and make drawings of him, or and just basically explore graphic design through my mom and dad, complicating every year I make my mom's kind of a graphic, a little birthday, graphic or something, and those things they all add up there all these sorts of like. You know I, don't I don't want him to be something that that's hidden away. You know so! I'm I'm really open about it and I understand that like Some people don't have that same sort of You know luxury with their mom and dad. Whatever you WANNA call I just I'm just really. They lost their MOMS and Dad Mom and dad's when they were young. I sounds to me like you have a really amazing special enviable relationship with your parents, and now that I'm hearing a little bit more of your story. I think the thing that is so appealing about us your willingness to strip it down and just to see it the way it is, and you know what if you don't like needle like me and I think the whole part where you talk about how old you are. From. Portland is your relationship with your parents. It very personal and I'm learning things from you is our watched and listened to you because I think a lot of people, there's their private life, and then there's a public persona in are working really hard to maintain that, and that's what's different about you. When you put it that way. It gets a little heavy because it's like when I think about it. If I had to like, go out. Like I'm a nightmare as it is fighting to go out like ramp that up more for some stage, persona or something. That just sounds so creepy. You know, but I I know I know I know because you know. I've been lucky to meet a lot of heroes out there sometimes good, sometimes a little weird for the most part, totally cool and they you know they sort of weren't what I thought they were going to be. And sometimes it's actually really fun, because sometimes unfairly either through someone's big name or whatever you. Think. You'RE NOT GONNA. have any time for you and then they do. And that's a good one other times. You know where you're. You're a gentle, little citizen and human being, and you know you go through the normal course of how you meet someone. And they just instantly right you off i. mean that's okay, too. You know I'm I'm I'm kind of up for whatever but yeah to go out there and do it. It is I I. Don't want to think about that part. You know because this story isn't about something that I tried to concoct and then in the night i. you know I sort of like turn that thing on and turn that shit off. No, this is my life. You know in the idea that if I can get ahead by coming in on Saturdays and Sundays well, that can apply to some kid and I wanNA talk about that. You know because that's how I did it. That's just. Just, the best way to put it I did it, and that's not what I was told I was told that you need to have account managers, and you need to have things and overhead and stuff, and maybe even decorum some sort of business acumen. Where like all these years later you know I love the idea of like client coming in here and being able to take a load off because they're instantly at ease, and that can just say hey. Hey, this is meant to be fun. You now take your. All the jokes about the pants and she aside but. Just be relaxed while you're here. There is none of this like you know. No one's. With. What is your most relaxed self if that's at home? You know when you get home and you're you know I saw a picture with your little boy Yup. Okay, so maybe your best time is with your your. How old's your boy? He's ten right now. I'm at ten. Trying to attain here is I'm trying to attain a life where whatever my my most comfortable moment was. That's where I'm working. You know, and that's my you know. It's like you know for a Saturday I know I'm supposed to go to farmers, markets and and. I. Don't know whatever other painful bullshit people do, but I love coming here because this is my hobby, you know and and a lot of ways. It was a hobby before it was a job. And I love to talk about that or talk like that when I'm up on some big stage, and just to kind of like you know, be a self deprecating as possible. Until someone meets me out, you know at a merch table or in the hall you know in. I'm I'm a regular person they can talk to you know. I think your story resonates so many people and you've built up almost like a cult like following, and it's pretty interesting for me to watch as a practicing graphic designer, but somebody who works on branding projects for other people. Can Do you know why? People seem to flock to you like this. To like pick it apart I. Don't know man I mean that's. That's a tough question. Because I would just hope that someone's interested first of all in the Wednesday of the graphics, they can up to my stuff and go. Why like this? It's not some inside. It's not over the ironic. It's not too cynical, you know my little kid would like this little piece of Merch. You know that there's an enjoyment quality like that's my first goal. At this morning I got into the shop and there was an email and it just this guy just slams me for my hat's first off. He said something like you know. We say something like you know the quality of your hats aside. No whoa man, and then he went into. Rip Me Apart and I. Just listen. Listen anybody else. The. Kid says you know. He says this doesn't fit my big head. I Want my money. I want exchange. He slammed me for the quality, and they're actually pretty nice. It's a hat, you know. It's a nice hat, so you know I've seen nicer hats, an obscene shittier hats. Our hats are good hat I'm not you know that's why I continue to make these things well and sell them and you know. He slammed me and then he wants to talk about the exchange here at that level. I'm getting better and better at just kind of regular back insane. Just send it back to this address and I'll send your money back like not even a thong. Whatever I. Just go right because you know I can just tell his character. You know like so fast now, too emails later. A kid had a problem with his poster. Ahead a little corner, Ding or something now we might have put that Ding or you know some dip shit the US.

I believe to say you on -pired the Jackie Robinson West Game Against Evergreen Park that ended up being One of the coaches Evergreen Park right of the kids out from Jackie Robinson West. Yeah so The way I mean. This is a national story. Jackie Robinson West. They made it all the way down to the world series. They Played Korea was South Korea. It plays South Korea. They lost so I mean if you remember that team if you remember like in Barstool Lor Big Cat was all like all the Games here now. Jackie Robinson West. It was a great story. You know not many teams you know from the inner city of Chicago. Make it that far and it's It ended up being kind of tarnished. I guess we could say because of this guy who kind of told on them and said these guys are out of district or whatever. But we'll get into that a little bit. I do want to start off with some general empire and questions So how did you become an up? I was at my Little League opening day parade and they just made an announcement over the microphone away.

Okay Yeah I was in purgatory for three years. I call it. I was up in seven and eight year old games strictly for three years. But I feel like usually people need to go through coaches pitches before you get to kids pitch right. Yeah so my literally doesn't have coaches pitch so they go straight indicates pitch at seven. They did offer like the four and five year olds. Four five six but So there's no like actual coach pitch. We'll hats off to you. I all for one summer.

I was assigned to the entire section so kind of just by chance so we were lucky to host that year. That Jackie Robinson was you know so hot. So He's more of a coincidence. I guess all really just I don't know being because they were. They were the good team so they lead to more people so ended up being because That tournament was being played in my neighborhood. So I- automatic so the guys that are running the tournament. We're from my little league. So they asked me to go on Puck. She got just kind of right place right time you know.

"Event the International Youth Sports while it might Okun Image of fun and innocence throughout its seventy three year history. The tournament has been plagued by scandal and on the afternoon of August. Twenty Ninth Nineteen Ninety. Two as spectators watched the Filipino team celebrating on the field after clobbering their American opponents. They couldn't shake the uneasy feeling that something about the situation didn't feel quite right. Welcome to sports criminals. Apar- cast original. This is the third episode in our March Madness. Special this month. We're counting down the top thirty one sports scandals from nineteen ninety. Two Thousand Twenty. I'm Carter Roy and I'm Tim Johnson in today's episode. We're going back to nineteen ninety two and the Little League World Series Scandal. Zamboanga city located on a small remote island in the Philippines is most famous for its canned sardine industry but in nineteen ninety two. It was the city's Little League Baseball team that caught the world's attention the team from Zamboanga breezed through the World Series Tournament. Demolishing everyone in its path until trouncing a squad from Long Beach California in the championship. Game fifteen to four from a gold medal in boxing thirty years before the boys victory represented the most significant athletic achievement. In the country's history they returned to the Philippines as heroes where President Fidel Ramos through them. A parade in the capital city and awarded them over forty dollars in scholarship money. Nearly everyone in the country celebrated the team's victory everyone except journalist Al Mendoza as a journalist. Mendoza's job was to tell the truth. Which wasn't always easy in a country like the Philippines twenty years before dictator Ferdinand Marcos had banned anything beyond state-sanctioned news and only recently after a regime change had independent news outlets resumed operation. Just a day. After the team's Victory Parade Mendoza published a column in the daily Enquirer with the heading mothers. How old are your children? He not only cast doubt on the ages of the players from Zamboanga City. But whether they were actually from the small town as they claimed to qualify for the Little League world series players must be between ten and twelve years old and the player must live within the geographic boundary of the town or city that his or her team represents for example. Boy From Austin Texas. Can't play on team from Dallas. Ten to twelve is also a tricky age because of the disparity and boys sizes and appearance at that age some of almost reach their adult height will others are still under five feet tall to Mendoza and many others the Filipino players looked too and too poised for boys that age after he published his column. The American League president fact sheet of questions to his counterpart in the Philippines to confirm the players were the correct age and if they were all from Zamboanga City in his response the Filipino. Little League president declared that all the players were of legal age but admitted that several from outside Zamboanga city had been added to the roster because the original players weren't able allowed to travel to the United States. He explained that Zamboanga City is a very rural area and that many of the boys were needed to work on their parents farms. Others had been too afraid to fly. He also maintained that if the substitution hadn't been made the original team from Zamboanga City would have beaten the Americans by twice as much but days later Mendoza and his colleagues revealed that excluding the eight players added to the roster from other cities the six players actually from Zamboanga city. Were all over. Asia anywhere from thirteen to fifteen years old and had assumed the identities of younger boys in town that the team had replaced their original manager with coach from Manila. A coach who couldn't even speak or understand the dialect used in Zamboanga City. Furthermore the parents of the overage athletes had also assumed false identities in an effort to maintain the ruse. Maybe the Little League Baseball could overlook the replacement of a few kids who were too scared to fly but when it came to systematic fraud perpetrated by multiple generations. They had no choice but to strip the Filipino team of its title and awarded to the boys from Long Beach for years. Alleman Dozo was considered a traitor. Someone who's reporting brought. Shame not only on the Filipino team with the country itself one that has wrestled with its own difficult history of corruption and scandal accustomed to corruption and lies from the most powerful politicians down to local youth sports coaches many. Filipinos refused to believe or acknowledge that cheating took place. And instead blamed Alman Dosa for the fallout and this refusal to take accountability only served to reinforce the cycle of cheating because in nineteen ninety-three one year after being stripped of its championship yet. Another little league team from Zamboanga City was disqualified once again for using overage players..
