Chump Change: A Little Know Rags to Riches Movie That's Worth a Watch
"Chump change, not that I'm promoting a movie, I was in. It's in one of those movies you can't find too readily somewhere, you probably have to order it. I'm not telling you to order it, but it is a funny, it's a red to rich's comedy. Based on the director and star and writer, Steve burrows, who it's his actual experiences while writing the screenplay in Los Angeles, and he decides the only way to come back as an actor is to fake his own death, then make a glorious return. But before that idea pans out, this happened in real life. He goes on wheel of fortune, the game show. And wrote about it. He wrote a screenplay by being on wheel of fortune. And then Merv Griffin heard about the screenplay, which was making the rounds and merv of course on world of fortune. He was like, you can't write about wheel of fortune. I'm suing you. Or a cease and desist. And that got big play around Hollywood circles. Merv Griffin's suing screenwriter for using wheel of fortune story. And because of the heat on that, people then want it to hire Steve burrows to write a script. It's so sick this town. And because Hollywood is Hollywood, Steve burrows became a hot ticket as an up and coming screenwriter. A studio hired him to write a script about what happened. He writes the script and he's championed by myself and Fred Willard as his agent and manager. Or manager and agent respectfully. And we give him incessant notes on how to write it better, like as if we know, and Steve burrows let us improvise a bit his writing was great, but he let us go off of page a little bit and allow me to say some crazy shit. He's a try, try, let's see if it works. And at one point in one of my scenes, I gave him notes on his latest script revision, and I said something dumb like, I don't know, it feels like there's too much typing in this spot. Real stupid shit. But he loved it. After all the notes he got, he couldn't sell the script, you know what he does. He goes back to the original script that nobody wanted, the first script, the studio saw, and then they go, now you got it. This is exactly the way the script's supposed to be. This is like Hollywood is. It's insane. Okay? This is what happens. So it's a true story, by the way, this really happened to him. And it really gives you an insider's perspective of stardom and show business.

Well, you ask about how I got into all of this and I have no idea in some ways very Quinn. President Kennedy was killed 60 years ago, you know, nearly 60 years ago or a little bit more. You know, I like everybody else. I cried my ears out. I was a Purdue university as a freshman. And yet over the years then, I bought all this material about J. Edgar Hoover saying Oswald alone. Oswald alone all of that and everything else. And then I had a real break with this because I knew Melvin Belli, who represented Jack Ruby, who shot Lee Harvey Oswald. I practiced law with him in San Francisco in the 80s. And when Belle I died, I started to look into his life and times and I found out that I could have a book there. So I wrote Melvin bell I king of the courtroom. And what I found out was the alarming, a couple things. First of all, he was very close with the mafia, one of his main clients was Mickey Cohen, the Los Angeles gangster. You're talking about but more than talking about Bella, are you talking about Marvin belli was close with the mafia? Melvin bell. Melvin Belli. Bella. Yeah.

The Left Wants to 'Columbus Day' Thanksgiving
"In today's Los Angeles Times about how Thanksgiving should go the way of Columbus day. It should be noted it should be noted that you can not have the Thanksgiving. Without the LA times. Yeah, no, that's correct. It's not just Thanksgiving. Remember what The New York Times did LastPass over. It was, for every religious holiday, The New York Times, the LA times, I don't know about The Washington Post, but I would presume it would be similar. We'll write an article debunking the validity of that holiday. People who have nothing hate those who have something. And I don't mean, in terms of material possessions. They have nothing. They don't have religion. They don't have love of country. They have nothing, and they hate those who have something. I wrote about this many years ago in explaining George Soros. George Soros has no religious or national identity, and he hates those who do have a religious or national identity. The left is their identity is the identity of biology. And I don't even mean male female because they don't even have that. It is the identity of blood. That is the only identity the left has. The identity of race.

"los angeles" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times
"Dream. So there were formal and informal ways of doing this. I mean, some of the former ways with that there were these racially restrictive covenants that developers would put in to communities that were being built. We found an ad from 1925 in the times that touted that quote, the residents of eagle rock are all of the white race. There was legalized segregation that ensured that this sort of city of homes, which is a frequent theme among the boosters and what they like times in particular called what Los Angeles would be would only before white people. And Brittany that's when you started seeing the first catastrophic effects of overcrowding. Right, exactly. And we were seeing cases of house courts like groupings of small wooden shocks and sheds. It's often filled with four or 5 people per room. I mean, these were Mexican laborers who are crowding into these conditions, and that's when tuberculosis started to spread. And I think it's important to note, this is a hundred years before the pandemic that we're in now and this problem was arising in overcrowded homes in Mexican neighborhoods and Latino neighborhoods. It's the same as it is today. And so there was a warning sign for what was going to happen a century later in Los Angeles. And not only that, we should emphasize that a lot of our research found that these public health and political leaders knew that overcrowded housing was driving the spread of tuberculosis, which spread through the air just like COVID-19 is yet instead of realizing the housing was the issue in the conditions where the issue and the low pay was the issue for these Mexican laborers, they blamed Mexicans themselves, blamed blamed race and that will be a troubling
"los angeles" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times
"My colleagues Britney mehi and Liam Dillon just published a huge investigation on this matter. Britney is a feature writer Liam covers housing, both of us status, welcome to times. Thank you. Thanks so much. There's so many stories that the two of you did, great ones on issues, profiles, analysis, of all the people that the two of you talked to, who especially stood out. Yeah, so when we started reporting this story, we really wanted to illustrate what a heavy toll overcrowding has had on communities. For us, Leonardo Miranda and his living situation was the clearest example of that. Leonardo was a construction worker living in pico union. He caught COVID first, and he shared the bathroom kitchen and dining room inside of the main house, and from there it really started to spread. It spread to someone sleeping in the laundry room floor, sleeping on like three red cushions. It spread to a grandfather to his grandson, and then by the time that was over to people in the house had died, including Leonardo. If you look at me on those neighborhood, pico union, that's actually one of the most overcrowded neighborhoods in the country. They have an overcrowding rate of 40%, and that's in comparison to LA, which overcrowding rate is 11%. So there's a huge difference there. It actually is denser than New York City. And when you look at the COVID impact, I mean, there have been tens of thousands of cases, like nearly 16,000 COVID cases and nearly 300 people who have died of the virus, which is one of LA county's highest death rates. I think what was really striking about this whole endeavor was to understand the extent to which sort of LA development history led up to the point that a significant driver of the mass death, frankly, that LA has seen over the last three years during the pandemic is overcrowded housing and seeing how this sort of century of decisions that we've made as a region led to that was striking and deeply sobering and deeply troubling. We found the founding myth of modern Los Angeles is to sort of nation's capital of single-family homes sprawl, also ultimately led to this sort of cruel paradox, which is the region is the most crowded in the country and has been for quite some time. So how far back into LA history did you have to go to understand what was happening with overcrowding or how we got to this moment? What really in a sense the start of modern LA? Back in the 1880s, when the rail lines were connected here and a bunch of boosters where they were the Chamber of Commerce types or the LA times owners themselves and others sold this place in Los Angeles, which was essentially nothing into this potential Paradise. There is probably no single area holding so much of charm and beauty and the good things of life as Southern California. That got away from the idea of what was happening in east coast and Midwest cities of being having high density. From the beautifully designed Spanish type station at Los Angeles in the heart of the city of the angels, the thrill of Southern California is in the air. And the sales pitch of LA is this bringing the mix of all the things you can get in the cities. Fine buildings, huge stores, busy citizens. Your playhouses and your well integrated economy and all those sorts of things. A city which has grown faster than any other in America in the past decade, and which sees a constant day to day influx of people from every part of the world. With the space that you can have in the countryside, that was the deep cell. In the years since the turn of the century, Los Angeles has grown from a sleepy Pueblo to a vast seething metropolitan city. And that went on for decades and decades and decades and led to LA to be the place that it is. And what's interesting is when we think of housing in big cities, the stereotype is always a place like New York, you know, tall buildings, public housing, very dense. And yeah, LA has obviously and it has had that for a long time, but the defining feature for the city and the county is suburban sprawl, single-family housing specifically, Liam, how did that become the priority as a region grew? So that idea was part of this founding myth of Los Angeles. And I think it's important to note that this founding myth of Los Angeles was specifically designated for white residents to come here from other parts of the country when you talk about what the world was like for black families who may have been trying to escape Jim Crow laws and Asian families who came here to build railroads and ultimately Mexican families who came here to build houses and work in slaughterhouses and all the things in the early late 19th and early 20th century. The response among the power brokers in this city was essentially exclusion, you know, this single-family home dream was marketed and sold as something that would be predominantly for white residents to come here. And this idea Liam of like, oh, Southern California is wonderful. It's gorgeous. It's a Paradise. Historians call that boosterism, and as you mentioned earlier, the Los Angeles Times was notorious for that in a very specific type of boosterism. Right, so that boosters and was extremely prevalent. I mean, it's the idea of, you know, you could see from mountain to sea, you have your self get a house and an orange tree in your backyard and with a manicured lawn, the weather, of course, being the central sales point, which you know, frankly it probably still is today, but like, that's the deal. So we shouldn't underestimate how significant this booster campaign was. I mean, there were newsreels that were billboards that were postcard songs, cartoons, newspaper ads, and really they just sent this one overriding message to the rest of the country, which was come, you know? There was this ad we found from 1921 at the times that was titled the great Southwest. Then I'll just quote a little bit from it. Here where nature I'm bringing my booster voice. Here where nature has built her finest playground, man has added the material things that provide the comforts that make life worthwhile, thousand thousands have come to enjoy the life in the mountains near the sea and the citrus groves and amid the forever blooming gardens and yet but a fraction of the resources of this wonderful country have been developed. And so, you know, orange groves, you get your house, you get your backyard, you know, you get all these things and you can only get them with the best weather in the world in Los Angeles. These postcards that we have from that time period, too. It's all greetings from California from the land of hearts desire. It's the same thing talking about the orange growing, the fruit trees, and every postcard it had a house, so it's just this idea of yes, come here, and you will have your own house. But again, as the both of you mentioned, it was come here basically if you're white, but black folks came in. Latinos, everyone, everyone tried to come into LA, you know, starting in 20s and 30s, but how did Los Angeles make sure that people of color did not live in these white communities. And we're not able to get part of that boosterism

And so yeah, they want them gone. Why do you think what happens in Los Angeles? What's happening now in LA matters to the rest of the country? Because I know you think it does. Well, I mean, I may be biased, but I do think that what happens in LA eventually happens in most cities in the country. It's just that it happens here first. And I think it happens here first because we are kind of this like big experiment in some ways. All of the clashes that happen between people of different races, ethnicities they happen here first. You know, you go to almost any city in the country. I mean, I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. I lived in Indianapolis, Indiana for years. Yeah, I go back to these places, and I see the same problems there that I did here. They just have taken 5, 6 years for that to happen. Around homelessness and affordable housing in particularly. The same thing with race and ethnicity and how all of these problems intersect with race and ethnicity. Like, you know, black people, for example, here in Los Angeles and this is true across the nation as well. We are disproportionately represented among the homeless population. That's no matter what city you're in, that no matter what state you're in. Same with Latinos. Disproportionately, you know, shot by police, you know, like criminal justice reform. All of these things. And so when you have three council members confirming the worst fears of other people that they want to consolidate electoral political power and wield it and build it just for the sake of Latinos and not really care and do it at the expense of people of other races, particularly black people who are disproportionately represented among kind of like every

"It's killing me it's today explained we're back with Erica D Smith. She's a columnist for the Los Angeles Times. Erica, what went through your head when you first heard this tape? Well, first off, it's like, wow, this is racist. And I will say that the longer the recording goes on and went on, the more I was thinking, the more racist this is. And just how many different groups they managed to insult in an hour, kind of amazing, actually. But I also thought, you know, it kind of confirms a lot of the suspicions that I've heard among black angelenos since the redistricting process last year about some members of the city council namely then council president during Martinez and about how she thought about black people in about political power. And so, you know, it was kind of eerie in a way because I think I had hoped that a lot of what I was hearing was more fodder for conspiracy theories than reality, but I think that hearing the words hearing the tape, you know, it was like, it made it more real. And it's disappointing, I think. But at the same time, also not entirely surprising. The Los Angeles Times has been reporting on how as bizarre as the situation is, it's kind of standard LA city council messiness. Why historically has Los Angeles city council been such a mess? I don't know if I could answer the why it's always been such a mess. I think some people would say LA because of its size is almost ungovernable as something that I've heard quite a bit. But I think that when it comes to things like corruption in general or this broader question, we're talking about with power and the desire for power. I think it's in some ways maybe the policies and the way that we kind of apportion power. Like what's one of the things that's come up a lot with this recording is redistricting and the idea of drawing maps for council districts. And LA is one of those cities where the city council has a lot of control over what those maps look like. And so when you have the people who directly benefit from the way that maps are drawn, making the decisions in a lot of ways about the way that maps are drawn, there's bound to be some meddling and some efforts in some corruption there. Two things are happening in this conversation. One of them is that these three city council members have met to talk about redistricting. And as they talk, we hear them trying to preserve Latino power in Los Angeles. They want to keep themselves in office. And now it's on tape and we've all heard it. So where does redistricting stand right now? I would say they didn't just want to keep themselves in office. I think they wanted to really consolidate Latino political power across the city and to do it at the expense of other racial groups and particularly with this recording. It was talking about black political power, which I think is really the crux of the matter. These comments are not just vile, they're not just racists, they're also potentially legally problematic. What we have are discussions, not just about increasing Latino voting power, but taken in context, potentially also about diluting African American voting power. And that's where you get a potential legal issue. A lot of anger in Los Angeles is that not that Latinos want more political power, which given the percentage of the population that makes up the legion population. I think everybody gets that. But I think that the idea of doing it at the expense of other groups is what is so hard. And so upsetting, I think, to a lot of people. But as far as redistricting, I mean, I think from the public standpoint, I think there's a lot of mistrust in the redistricting process for some of the reasons that I had mentioned before about how the city council has a lot of control over what redistricting looks like where the maps are who gets what in their district. There is a couple of proposals out there right now. One of which would basically throw out the current redistricting maps, which were devised last year, and it came about in this conversation. They would appoint an independent commission to basically redraw the maps ahead of the 2024 election from what I hear and there's a lot of support for some sort of systemic change like that to number one bolster public confidence in redistricting to kind of address what many perceive as problems with the current maps. Things that this recording only highlighted. Okay, so when we ask, why is the city council such a mess? We get to Los Angeles is a very complicated place. And historically, that has been the case. Racial politics have always been a part of LA's politics. Frankly, just because the city is so diverse, particularly in the last 50 years. We are a divided city today divided on the basis of race and religion and on the basis of neighborhood on the basis of age, and it's about time that we begin to pull together. I think that when LA got its first black mayor in Tom Bradley, several decades ago, he won notably by building coalitions between black angelenos and Jewish angelenos and to an extent. Latino, angelenos. A college of conscience, a college of those people in this city. Or reject the politics of irresponsibility or reject the politics of corruption. Who are determined to see in this city, a government that extends justice and dignity to every man. And what came out of that administration was this notion or this idea that in order to implement good public policy in order to really get elected. You're going to have to build coalitions across racial lines because of the Strata of different demographics that are here in Los Angeles. That said, you know, over the past four decades or so, the Latino population has grown. It's grown to about 50% of the city. Meanwhile, the number of black angelinos have shrunk to roughly about 8% of the population down from about, I think it's about 17% or so. So on the one hand, there's this understanding that to get anything done in the city, you're going to have to build alliances. But on the other hand, there is this kind of fear that as Latinos grow in number in the city that political power is going to be given specifically to Latinos just because of sheer numbers and that they quote unquote won't really care about anybody else. It really is this kind of undercurrent of us versus them. And I think it all just comes back to this idea of struggle for power and how it intersects with race. And I don't really think that's necessarily any different than how it plays out across the rest of the country. I just think it's in some ways unique to LA because of who are the residents of LA. Angelenos will elect a new mayor next month. This is all happening awfully close to that election. Can you tell me about who's running? Yeah, so there's two candidates where the finalists who are going to be on the ballots. One of them is a Rick Caruso who's a developer known for kind of building high end upscale malls. The whole office market has changed dramatically. And we can convert a lot of these office buildings to livable units for the homeless. The other one is congresswoman Karen Bass, who is native angeleno, who has been in Congress for years. The state assembly before that. We need to house people quickly in temporary housing. Then we need to address why they were unhoused to begin with. Both candidates have called for all three members of the council to step down. That

"How many times have you heard the recording? Oh gosh, I've lost count. A lot. I keep on going back in to kind of hear different specific parts. Can you take us to that meeting? How did it start when did the racial abuse start? What was said about various racial and ethnic and religious groups in Los Angeles just give me the rundown as you remember it. The conversation is a little over an hour long, I think it's about 80 minutes long. And what's pretty unnerving about it is that it really cycles in and out from terrible racist comments and then they'll kind of get back to business on a variety of things. But the thing I think that people have had perhaps the most visceral reaction to in the city was the deeply racist way that then city council president nari Martinez talked about a white council member's young black son and at one point she's discussing being on a parade float with the boy who at the time was a toddler. And at one point says he deserves to beat down for having kind of misbehaved on the float. Around the corner and then I'll bring him back. Yeah. She compares the way that council member Mike bonnet and the boy's father handled his young son to an accessory. It's an accessory. And that's a point where you know, a couple other people are jumping in council member Kevin de Leo and jokes that it's like Martina is with her Louis Vuitton bag. And then councilman member of Martina is also calls him a little monkey in Spanish. Why is it time people? And I'm just like, oh my God. I'm always here trying to. And that's one thing that it's been a bit controversial because, you know, that can be in some Spanish speaking households a term of endearment. But once it's in public, I think even if she meant it that way, it's incredibly hard to separate out the use of that word from the fact that monkeys and apes have been used as an anti black racist trope for centuries. That's kind of one section of the conversation that I think is reverberated the most. But overall, they really take aim at a rainbow coalition of groups with racist or derogatory or crude remarks about black people. Jewish people Armenians, indigenous people in gay people. Anti black racism is one of the largest threads throughout the tape. At one point, Martinez curses the district attorney George gasco and says, he's with the blacks. And I think that kind of othering and that ugliness is something that comes up quite a few times beyond any of the isolated comments. So at a certain point in the discussion, they turn to the neighborhood of koreatown, which is actually now more of a Latino neighborhood than it is Korean in terms of who lives there. And it's specifically home to a great number of oaxacans, which are people from a region in Mexico. And in speaking about who lives in this area, Martina goes, I see a lot of quote little short, dark people. And then she makes some reference and I'm paraphrasing here, but it's a little bit like, I don't know where they came from. I don't know how they got there. They came out and got here, but. And then people are kind of laughing, and then at one point, she says, ten fail. Which is ugly. And this is something that is really sent shockwave through LA. LA is home to one of the largest concentrations of oaxacans outside of Mexico. And the community has really rallied against what was said and people from across the city of rallied in support of oaxacans. There was a massive rally on Saturday, but included oaxacan music, traditional oaxacan clothing, just celebrating the oaxacan community and also people kind of coming together to say, we do not stand for what was said. What was this meeting about? So every ten years the city draws new lines for its city council districts. They were talking about the redistricting process and also consolidating Latino power and drawing lines that would be favorable for them and their allies to be winning reelection. And this is a place where I want to interject really quickly and add a little bit of nuance. And this nuance is in no way excusing the terrible, terrible things that are said. It's just, you know, it's important to kind of understand what the backdrop here is. And the first thing to know is that in and of itself, it's not racist to talk about race during redistricting. This is a process, particularly in a multi ethnic city like LA that is based to some degree on racial coalition's jockeying for power and making deals with each other. So even you know saying a seat is a Latino seed or a black seat or a Jewish seat, that isn't inherently problematic. It's typically part of the discussion. It's what then got said in the context of that discussion that was so unbelievably racist. And the other thing to know is that and kind of a real undercurrent in this conversation is that Latinos have been underrepresented in LA political power. And that's a very real thing and it's something that's really shaping a lot of what's going on with their thinking as they're having this conversation. Who is the woman whose voice was heard saying the most offensive things on the recording? Who is nuri Martinez? Dray Martinez, who actually resigned from her position on the council last week, was the Los Angeles city council president. She was someone who wielded a lot of power at city hall. She is from the northeast valley. Which is actually a really interesting area politically. It's a very Latino working class neighborhood and there's a whole array of politicians who have come up and really established real power in California politics and built sort of their own coalition of people. They came up with. What is nuri Martinez's ethnic background? Knowing Martinez is Latina, she was both her parents. She was a child of immigrants, both her parents are from Mexico. She was the first Latina city council or is the first Latina city council president, which was a very big deal a couple of years ago when she, when she took her post. So we have this contradiction, which is there's a tendency outside of Los Angeles in places where I think people pay less attention to think Mexican Americans, they're all one group, what nuri Martinez essentially proved is no they are not, within the Mexican American community, there are lots of prejudices. She put voice to some of them. And then the tape comes out, there are calls for her to resign. She does resign. But not everybody in the room does. Can you tell me the timeline from when the tape emerged to the political fallout as you experienced it? The political fallout was pretty immediate, at least it started pretty immediately, but at first a lot of politicians issued kind of a first set of statements where they were not yet calling for resignations. And then I think within the next day or two, it kind of became very clear which way the wind was blowing and also the temperature in the city, which by that point was just blazing white hot and a lot of these same politicians issued another set of statements where they called for all of these people to resign. And this kind of kept picking up steam within the next couple of days. President Biden actually called for all of them to

"The Los Angeles city council held its regular Tuesday meeting today and we have to assume it was very awkward for all involved because someone we don't know who leaked a year old recording of three members of that council behind closed doors discussing redistricting, a dry topic that could have been kept dry except the three of them made racist xenophobic and homophobic comments about their constituents and their colleagues, and also a colleague's young son. Nouri Martinez, the council's president, resigned within days, you'll see O and Kevin de Leon are refusing to go despite calls for their resignations from president Joe Biden's camp and mayor Eric garcetti, the acting city council president has stripped them of their committee assignments and still they persist.

"The virtues of the logo that you covered the green monster with the 99 All-Star Game. Well, buster, I'm gonna correct you because I did not do the 99 All-Star Game logo. However, you would have been correct if you would have referenced the 90th anniversary of Fenway Park, logo, which was in 2002, and a couple of other things along the way. But David is an amazing man with an amazing story and I'm looking forward to getting up to Fenway. Sometime later this year, quite possibly after the all star break. So always a great trip, even when the Red Sox are scuffling along and not able to score runs. Yeah, you're going down bitter boulevard this morning. There's no question about it. Before we get started, we're talking about that game last night when they were shut down by the reds just as they were shut down by the Baltimore Orioles. Four losses and 6 games against those two teams. Hey, it's like it's as if it was 1975 and the reds in the Orioles were powerhouse franchises and speaking of which you and I talked about this a little bit before we jumped on to the last reds win at Fenway Park. Game 7 of the 1975 World Series. I was a very bitter young man then when that had happened buster. Very well. Very bitter ten or 11 year old. Yeah, I was 11 years old. I was pissed off. It was not a good situation. But time goes by, you get other bad memories, good memories of outweighed those. I never thought I would see a championship in my lifetime, much less for, much less be it three of them. So like baseball is kind of a, it's a metaphor for life. It's very forest Gump like, it's a marathon, not a sprint, and we shall see what we shall see, and hopefully the Red Sox can score some runs. I was telling June Lee about the city connect uniforms that were revealed last week, you know, in particular that one with the rockies, how my son absolutely loved them. What did you think? Oh, I love the rockies once. And you and I have been talking about this for the last year and a half, whatever it's been. And I know Julie loves to write about city connected forms. As much as I hate my Red Sox city connect uniforms, the Red Sox out there, looking like the yellow minions, I love the rockies. I'm a big license plate guy. All right, just like come at me here, buster. And I think that these uniforms capture something that is distinct and very Colorado and they get into the weeds with a lot of the superfluous details that no one is ever going to see. What's inscribed on the jock tag and all that. But the immediate impact of these and that green color, which you see a lot of that green color at beautiful course field, I think they nailed it. Yeah. That's clear, June, June, absolutely feels the same way. And I'm sure, you know, as we go forward with more of those, we're going to be hearing more from you about those uniforms. All right, let's talk about this week's phantom franchise. So buster, the St. Louis browns, scheduled a press conference for 1 p.m. on December 8th, 1941 at Lyman's cafe in Los Angeles, California. The big announcement involved the move of the moribund browns to LA, starting in 1942. The brownies had recently concluded their 12th consecutive losing season. And they shared a ballpark with the Saint Louis Cardinals, an excellent franchise that commanded the attention of their city. Brown zoner Don Barnes had quietly worked out the details of the moved west, which included a deal with the then minor league angels to purchase the team and stadium. Eager to have St. Louis to himself, Cardinals owner Sam Braden would kick in a quarter of a $1 million to help send the browns packing for the Golden State. The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce guaranteed a minimum season attendance of 500,000 for the first 5 years, including an offer to make up the difference if the guarantee was not met. Travel schedules were carefully worked out and barns lined up the preliminary approval of his fellow American League owners. The Los Angeles browns were set to become the first and it will be franchise to change cities since 1903 and the first big league club west of St. Louis. A permanent stadium was to have been built in Long Beach to host the ball club. On December 7th, 1941, barns arrived in Chicago, where a meeting of American League owners was to be held the following day to grant formal approval. However, that morning, Japanese forces staged a surprise Attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, decimating the U.S. Pacific fleet and cut a catapulting the United States into World War II. Barnes made his presentation to the league the following day as scheduled, but he asked his fellow owners to reject the proposal. Our dream was shattered, he later told the sporting news with the scare of a West Coast invasion we realized at once that Los Angeles was no place for the browns. The other owners agreed voting unanimously to keep the browns franchise in St. Louis where they won their only a pennant in 1944 before finally relocating to Baltimore ten years later and where they now play as the Orioles. But today buster, we salute the Los Angeles browns. They are this week's phantom franchise. So do you think Todd, I based on the information you have, they would have kept that name because as you said it, I thought, boy, that it would have just landed with a thud. And what we think of as Los Angeles today, the browns, and then I was also thinking that, yeah, the Dodgers nickname doesn't really work necessarily. Either that doesn't make any sense given the history of that nickname, but can you imagine? Well, it's interesting buster. Research the name of the history of the Los Angeles Lakers. And I was in LA last week. I saw silver Lake, not a lot of lakes in Los Angeles, but they're wearing Minneapolis where the Lakers moved from. And I found a quote from the, I believe, publicity director of the Lakers at that time. And he said, you know, why change the name of the team, the Dodgers kept their name when they moved to LA, the Giants kept their name. The braves kept their name when they moved from Boston to Milwaukee. This is what was done. And certainly 1941, no team moves to speak of in major league sports back then, very few, you know, I'm thinking NHL none in Major League Baseball as I pointed out. So they probably would have.

"Baseball for ESPN. He's been to a lot of games in Fenway Park in June. Last night, watching what Joey Votto went through, you know, hitting two balls at the absolute edge of the home run boundaries. First and right field on that wall that's in front of the visitors bullpen and then to hit the one on top of the green monster and have the same thing happen. I mean, would you back me up that this might be something you would never see again in the history of baseball. It might be the most unlikely thing that's ever happened in the history baseball. Yeah, because if you take like ichiro, for example, a dude who knows how to place a baseball anywhere. I'm not sure that if he just was tossing up a baseball and just trying to do this that he would be able to do that, especially because the outfield walls that Fenway Park are so weird to begin with like the one in right field is already so low compared to most ballpark and then obviously you've got the green monster and left field. To be able to place balls with that level of specificity and also have them bounce back, like the odds of that are probably greater than one in a million, one in 5 million, 10 million. It's just something I've never seen before, I mean, you rarely see that in general with just one of the walls. So you see that happened twice is something you just never imagined seeing happening. For one player in one game, right? Just crazy. And I mentioned in the open about how Joey before the game was being so specific, he was turning around and asking one of the staffers on the reds. Okay, how hard was the exit velocity in that ball? Tell me, what was that? And he's getting the news back, one O 6, one O 7, one O 8. So he was so locked in. I can't even imagine how he processed that game and what happened last night. It was better for him. I'm sure that the fact that the reds won for the Red Sox at four losses in 6 games against the Baltimore Orioles and the Cincinnati reds who supposedly are two of the worst teams in baseball. I can't figure out the Red Sox, June. Yeah, it kind of reminds me so far of 2019. And maybe a little bit more extreme than 2019 where the Red Sox were kind of middling around 500 the entire season, they would go through stretches where they looked like a team that could go into the playoffs and make some waves. And then they would go through stretches where they would lose games against teams they should win. So to see them drop all these games against the Orioles and the reds. It's like, what are you doing, guys? I mean, this is a team that made it all the way to the ALCS last year, had an off season where they add Trevor story. I think I was talking to some folks around Fenway Park a couple of weeks ago about how lucky the team was that the Celtics and the bruins were winning as much as they were going deep into the playoffs because if that hadn't happened, the pressure on this team would have skyrocketed, especially on Trevor story and story was able to kind of hit his way out of that slump and I think kind of helped ride the Red Sox into a streak where they were getting closer to 500. But there's so many parts of this team that I think are kind of exacerbating one another, the struggles in the bullpen, putting more pressure on the offense and putting more pressure on the starting rotation that opens a disaster. I mean, there's no way around that. I think people around Fenway and people who work for the Red Sox will admit that this group came into the season already thinner than they probably should be in a division that's as competitive as they are. But the biggest surprise has been Matt Barnes being as bad as he has been. And I've talked to some of his former teammates where they kind of talk about how he's a guy who is one of the most talented relievers in baseball from a stuffed standpoint, but he gets in his head so much, especially when he struggles that one bad outing can start to spiral into multiple bad atoms and then he's too hard on himself because he's putting more pressure on the rest of the bullpen and the rest of the bullpens already spread thin. And they're really relying on guys like Tanner how to be kind of the bullpen anchor to replace a guy like Garrett who's obviously down the rotation. They've had John shriver be very good over the course of the last few weeks. But Barnes is really the guy that I think is the key for this team to be able to kind of help at least relieve some of those bullpen issues. And they just can't depend on the bullpen right now to keep a lead late in the game. So if you're John Henry and that's your job now, I'm going to make you John Henry. Owner of the Red Sox. At some point in the next two months, you have to decide whether or not to be buyers or sellers. And let's face it. If the Red Sox decide to become sellers, they're going to be like a one stop shop for all these contending teams because they have so many guys who were potentially free agents in the fall and you start with Xander bogarts who could opt out of his deal. JD Martinez went into yesterday with the highest batting average in baseball, all those starting pitchers, you know, Michael waka and ridge hill and Nathan of Aldi, Christian basque as their catcher. If you are John Henry, today, what's your instinct in terms of whether or not you're going to be by or seller? Well, if I'm John Henry, I'm first saying Muhammad a lot to a deal for Liverpool. You locking him up. But I mean, I think you make a great point in that. The Red Sox have all these perfect trade pieces to help improve a contender. I think Xander is kind of at the center of all of this as a franchise face and the Red Sox fan base still despite the Mookie trade relatively going decently well not being a disaster for them in terms of the return that they got. That sour taste is still in their mouth. And this has been kind of a decades long relationship between the fan base and the front office. Specifically, the.

"We've got Luke robitaille, the Los Angeles kings joining us as our guests here in episode 17. Lots of chew on and headlines ring, which we'll get to momentarily, but you know I've lived in Ontario since 1998. So I love the weather because I mean kind of similar to Vancouver, I guess minus The Rain. We get our share of rain, but not like that. But do get to experience extended seasons, right? And we're spoiled in southern Ontario, especially because you don't see a flake of snow until the new year. And we got walloped on Sunday Night. And I was joking. I was talking to a buddy, and I'm looking at my snow blower in my pimped out garage. And it pisses me off to have my snow blower in my garage because you know I've got the floor as epoxy. I've got big screen TV, I've got plot lights. I mean, it is a beautiful man cave. And I'm looking at how much does an insider make. Yeah, well, when I sold my other hosts, that was priority one. I said, look, to haul, you can do whatever you want in the house. It's a three car garage. It's going to be built the way I want it to be. It's so do you have, do you have a golf hitting bay in there yet? I don't. And I've got my Keenan's old 1985 convertible Mercedes sitting in the bay that would be a simulator. So if you get one, would you be able to take a full swing in there? Yeah, you could. Yeah. Okay, so it wouldn't be like Duffy who put a simulator in his basement and he can only hit a wedge, otherwise he keeps hitting the roof. You wouldn't be that stupid, right? No. I think I've got like a lavender 12 foot ceilings minimum in there. Anyway, I'm making fun of the snow blower on Sunday afternoon. In the weather warning is out there, right? Be prepared. Heavy snowfall warning. It's right. Yeah, yeah, sure. I grew up in the prairies, but you know what we're going to get an inch of snow big deal. We woke up morning. And it was comical the amount of snow that fell. It was like it just went. I saw Andy petrillo takes a walk and he put a dog in the snow and the poor guy just disappeared. I'm like, yeah. Oh man, how deep is that? And it's crazy because you're ready for it and you're from the prairies and you've had bad weather and all that stuff. But when it hits, oh my God, like it's like you can't even believe it, right? No, you can't. And so I'm gonna call it the good Samaritan opportunity for me and my neighbor across the street Phil. So clearly we were sort of prepared because we have snow blowers. So I mean, that's two thirds battle. I wasn't sure mine was gonna start, so I gassed it up, it started out we go. I've got a, I would say a driveway similar to yours. So it's not a small driveway. Anyway,.

"Anyway. Lisa bloom who you may know is harvey weinstein's former attorney who actively tried to protect him from rape allegations. She bought the house. Lisa bloom proceeded to gut the house for a complete overhaul renovation. That means all of the beautiful historic detail is gone and look. I'm no architect but it seems to me if you buy a gorgeous spanish revival from the nineteen twenties that probably doesn't need much more than some cosmetic work and a lot of saging you want to keep the historical integrity of the house. Not lisa bloom. Lisa was like get rid of all of it. But then oopsy. After stripping the whole house basically down to its foundation bloom claims she then found out that bringing the house up to code would be too expensive cool. Maybe next time check with the city before taking sledgehammer to a one hundred year old house anyway in twenty nineteen. The house was bought again by some people who began to chronicle their renovation journey on instagram. It was pretty cool to follow while it lasted. Their last post was on february eighth. Twenty twenty one rumor has it. Someone bought the rights to the story. Which i guess belonged to the new owners of the house. Who knew that buying an old house. Granted you ownership to all the things that may have happened inside it over the years. The good news is whoever bought. The rights will probably have a platform longer than a half hour podcasts. To tell the story. So maybe we'll finally find out all the nitty gritty details. The weird time capsule the house at twenty four. Seventy five glendower's became though something tells me the audience that goes to see a movie about a gruesome murder.

"So we're talking about the battle of los angeles and no. We're not discussing the great album by rage against the machine from the early two thousands. We are discussing actually a real thing that the album was named after. And if you don't know that that's a rage against machine album you should listen to it because it's fantastic album actually so Let me frame this up for you guys let less frame it for you guys. Actually so picture this. It's the twenty fourth of february in nineteen forty two. It's been less than three months since pearl harbor. And it's also been one day since the bombardment of ellwood which is near santa barbara by the way. Have you ever heard of the number of elwood chat up until researching this episode. I had not heard of this in. And i guess i kinda i. I believe there were no fatalities in this attack. Correct that is correct. Actually i do some more reading about this. And i thought it was kind of cool so while not cool. But you'll get. I'm kind of like intrigued by it in a second so obviously pearl harbor happened. It's been about three months since that happened. So what happen here at the bar of ellwood is japan. Had a submarine Sitting stationed right off the right off the coast. They surfaced and launched. Just i it was like maybe a little over ten torpedoes They were aiming. I guess they were aiming for a particular structure. But they missed it entirely. They caused very little damage but the whole point the whole reason they did it was because it was also during a presidential address and they were trying to distract from the president speaking to the us so literally a few minutes into him talking they they surfaced. Shot a couple torpedoes and then Submerged again and went away. That's the environment of elwood right. It's like almost nothing happened. Yeah and i think. That's i think that's why it's not such a popular story and it's probably probably a lot of people haven't heard about it and that's because it was very small and there were no casualties so there's probably so many stories from world.
