"lynchburg hill" Discussed on The Morning Brushback with Dan Blewett

"You. They'RE GONNA value their front office employees much more than some replaceable ballplayer, and that'll be the end of you. He said. So here's my advice to you Dan. Do not under any circumstances mess with the front office women don't don't like just be cordial be polite but consider them romantically limits to you entirely how do you feel about that as good or bad advice? Great advice scrape advice for independent ball specially affiliated baseball's Basel Different. Those employees of the team are necessarily employees of the team that you play for their employees of the Minor League team that it. There's a separation of like jury ounce stay there year owned by graves not that little minor league right now not F-. Lynchburg. Hill cats on. Good. Advice though do not do not coop where he eat essentially. Yes thanksgiving always the about. There you go. Yeah. It's very good advice. The coach is obviously speaking from some kind of experience either he had a player or has himself to. I. Don't know he's definitely. SMART. Guy. He was being from experience in that he saw at least a couple teammates get either into serious issues or get released because of it ram he did said, he said he dated a local reporter which whatever. But even that is it even he said even then. Say Your meter a news reporter who covers the team and is very closely tied and well regarded with the team. They'll still be like Oscar that like that that guy's not playing well and he broke your heart get Outta here. You know it's just like you said, it's just office romance for athletes is it's it can impact your career for sure oddly enough my season there is a really pretty girl in the front office that I thought was really cute. She's really nice and I was like. nope. nope. NOPE nope. Donda. So any advice it's gray advises advice for I mean I got to imagine if I had if I had a corporate job I worked for. A state farm and I had an office and there was a good looking girl in the office like another agent that would be a conflict of interests and that would cause some issues with the boss if you're involved with a coworker in, it wasn't prior to working there. Well, and I think you also need to be really careful about the relationship and and like you and I talked about off air. Now, if you're like an office where you feel like there's really legitimate chemistry and like really like a legitimate disks, very serious relationship may be a long-term maybe of future wife or husband whatever. That's a little different and I think in the sports world may be still considered the same way either way you probably stay out of it, but it's like man this person I feel it could be my spouse one day. That's I. think a little bit different than rather dislike I'm to you know casually date someone or like I just WanNa sleep with this person. Where definitely stay away but this is like man, we really connected. This could be a serious long-term thing. Then you know the obviously office romances happen and like people get married for people that were 'cause you're in closed quarters. So it's not to say you can never work but us after an understanding where your hearts out I think to if it's because we we both of guys who like married someone in the front office like that does happen once in a while. But that's I. think wholly different than dislike sleeping around the front office is that's certainly a not a good thing to do I would I would stand by the rule of thumb don't pre Yes for sure. Just say better safe than sorry especially when you're talking about a career like the forget sportsworld if you're a NIGGA mutation, if you're climbing the corporate ladder neared got a well paying job in all of a sudden just decide like A. The, the assistant in the office next door looks like she might be fun. Okay. Well, how far how funny I don't do that not that fun long McDonald's CEO is in big trouble about that. Have you heard about that story? He had some inappropriate relationships with employees as the CEO McDonald's and got ousted, and then he apparently hid evidence of more. So he could keep a really large severance package and now McDonald's is suing him for fraud for uncovering that up. So more stories and why that's a terrible idea. Yeah. If you you're the CEO of, McDonald's like you've got to be making a couple shackles asserted out data minds outside the office. It's I'm sure you have enough at your disposal that you don't need a date, the secretary from. Zero McDonald's in. Salem Virginia. I don't know how in the restaurants in the corporate. In the corporate office. So let's let's shift the show media in the Golden Age. So what do you think it was the golden age of being an athlete Robert in how would you define define golden age here's what was say right now, the Golden Age of being an athlete was the was that probably. From the time. Michael. Jordan was a rookie to like ninety eight like it was basically George Michael Jordan was the golden age of sports and I'll tell you why. Social, media was was just non existent. You could be celebrity a very popular celebrity without being on blast in the news, but you're still at you but there's enough media to be well known. Also, let me let me let me extend like nineteen, eighty, four to two, thousand and four that twenty year span because I like to lump Derek jeters light early life into that because that guy is just the epitome of what professional athletes should be professionally both professionally and socially keeping their off off-field image just squeaky-clean. wiki. Clean Light never in the news and part of that. That would never say remarkable remarkable. But we're talking Golden Age radler there's no twitter. Like no one's out there with their camera phone snapping you if you to a picture of Derek Jeter, you had to have the big camera a near on your chest like ready to take one. You.

"It. Jazz. Life which. Russell westbrook. Didn't wanna talk about it. Did not want to have anything to do with it. For Russ, and I know a couple of days ago, he says I you know, I like to mix it up with the crowd. Can we not understand that? There is a line. No matter what a guy says with the crowd. We're not get that. Yet. There is always going to be some fun and give and take. And I remember when I was young. And there's always a story you go to a baseball game. There's a guy standing in right field. You try to get his attention. You try to f-. I do it. I've done it a minor league games. I've done in a minor league games. Walla host right here at CBS sports radio. I love to do. I actually got a new one the pitching coach once. You find out about you have a little bit of fun. You have a couple of pops were down to Myrtle Beach. They're playing the Lynchburg hill cats. Pitchers out there. Get a little bit worked up. We're trying to we're trying to get in get the old bio on the Wikipedia. Don't get too personal leave the mothers out of it. Try to have some fun. So who's going to be down there who's catch in see if we can say something? I don't think Tom actually knows the story. I'll tell this all of a sudden the pitching coach comes out. I know his name. I'm not going to say his name. He looks up to us like a little boy. Sober goes. Hey, you you pop it off. I says no he goes. Yeah. You think you were the one pop off to shut up and watch the game for whatever reason it came over me. And again, I was a couple of drinks in. Hey, why don't you worry about your pitcher is about to get blown up and stop worrying about drunks in the stands? Came down said, you didn't cost. I'm not gonna throw you out of here said, absolutely. There's a line cursing the line, you can have fun. But you have to understand that there's a lot in for the rest of the game. I was quite gotta be quiet had some fun. It's gotta be quiet ended up talking to the guy that kid who was playing right field ended up one who that kid is. Hopefully, he's going to have a nice twenty nine thousand nine season. A major league baseball now. You try to have some fun. But there's always going to be a line in just because you haven't expensive seat doesn't give you a license to be a dumb ass dumb ass. And there's always going to be a line where a player who doesn't know who you are. And he's the superstar is always going to be above. You just what it is. You came to watch in. You didn't come to watch you. It's over the Shane keys will guy in the name needs to be said. Because if I know who are Westbrook is, and I can go after Russell Westbrook and say that he bothers me for this that and the other and be critical of him and say that Durant got the best to him and say that Oklahoma city's worse off with him than they would have been with Kevin Durant. As of that, take needs anything. But if I'm going to say that and I'm gonna use Russell Westbrook's name. If this is a guy who was cursing saying slurs at Russell Westbrook, which obviously according to his Twitter when he got milkshake duck. It would have to believe that. He did I'm gonna use his name. So for Shane keys, all the guy who got kicked out of the state or kicked out of the arena for the rest of his life. And I need to know his name. It's just a simple license of what's acceptable. And what's not especially now because we are more on edge society? Now, I will say it's been years since I had fun in Myrtle Beach. It's been years since I've had fun like that at a ballgame getting Johnny Damon's attention. Getting other guys. Attention. The best your Manny Ramirez. David ortiz. Trying to get him to look up trying to get him to see something when you're up there in the stands trying to do that. It's been years. I'll admit that. And I think our society has changed. We're more on edge than we've ever been before rightfully so we're more nervous than we've ever been before rightfully so about our scenarios. And I think for a guy like Russell Westbrook. And for the fans, the situation has changed. And there's no wall and basketball a wall separates us from the field and football. Most of the time in soccer all the time in baseball. There's no wall that separates you in the NBA. So you're right there possibly in contact Ron tests taught us that he can certainly come up there and get you if he really wanted to lot other guys could. So what it comes down to now in two thousand nineteen is that while I was a goofball myself back in the early twenty tens I can't necessarily afford to be that way. Now in two thousand nineteen also that the enjoyment. Other people are also in my stance. Just because I spent a lot of money doesn't mean I can make an asset myself because I am also trying to take away from the enjoyment of the other people who spent a lot of money if Tom disagrees with Billy Jack disagrees with. Me you go right on ahead. But what it comes down to now is in in our society. If we're more nervous than we've ever been before if we're more connected than we've ever been before were this guy who would have been a no neighbor, and what it just got kicked out of the arena twenty years ago. And we never heard who he was we never want to talk about who. He was now gets milkshake duct you find out. Exactly who we issue. Find out the terrible things that he said Russell Westbrook in the past on social media, you find out where he lives you find out where he works. You find out all the background information. And you're about to find out the guy who got thrown out with them because he was saying some other racially charged things at Russell Westbrook. We need to be more responsible. What it comes down to is this. I think booing is perfectly acceptable. Cheering is personally acceptable. I think that encouragement is acceptable. And that's about it. The NBA is going to protect the brand. There was a time where if you went to the opposing place they're taking care of their players. They're taking care of their fans. If you're one of the visitors you're just gonna have to deal with it. You go into the garden. You're going to have to deal with what the garden comes with you. At you. Go into the great western forum, you deal with those folks you're going to have to deal with that Indiana could be a tough place to play back in the early nineties. You have to deal with that. Now, they're going to protect all their players. It's all about the brand. It's all about protecting themselves making the look better because they want to make sure that it's an inviting place for fans at every single arena that they're at all thirty. They have good fan-friendly atmospheres. And you're kicking lots like Shane Kiesel out of the arena for life. It's the same thing that what the NFL will do once somebody gets hurt in the bills. Mafia is the same thing with the NFL's trying to do because every single Monday, we see a video on busted coverage or we see a video on TMZ a some goofball getting in a fight in the men's room. The times are a changing sometimes it's fun to have the home field homecourt advantage home-ice advantage. It's a fun thing to do that. But we have to compare selves a little bit better than what we have been in the past five two one two four CBS. Jerry palm.

You didn't come to watch you. And so for the Shane keys guy in the name needs to be said. Because of I know Russell Westbrook is and I can go after Russell Westbrook and say that he bothers me for this that and the other and be critical of him. It say that Durant. Got the best to him and say that Oklahoma City is worse off with him than they would have been with Kevin Durant as if that take needs anything. But if I'm going to say that and I'm gonna use Russell Westbrook's name. If this is a guy who was cursing and saying slurs at Russell Westbrook, which obviously according to his Twitter when he got milkshake duck. It would have to believe that. He did I'm gonna use his name. So for Shane keys, all the guy who got kicked out of the state or kicked out of the arena for the rest of his life. And I need to know his name. It's just a simple license of what's acceptable. And what's not especially now because we are more on edge society? Now, I will say it's been years since I had fun and Myrtle Beach. It's been years since I've had fun like that at a ballgame. Get Johnny Damon attention. Getting other guys. Attention the best you Manny Ramirez. David ortiz. Trying to get him to look up trying to get him to see something when you're up there in the stands trying to do that. It's been years. I'll admit that. And I think our society has changed. We're more on edge than we've ever been before rightfully so we're more nervous than we've ever been before rightfully so about our scenarios. And I think for a guy like Russell Westbrook. And for the fans, the situation has changed. And there's no wall and basketball a wall separates us from the field and football. Most of the time in soccer all the time in baseball. There's no wall that separates you in the NBA. So you're right there possibly in contact Ron tests taught us that he can certainly come up there and get you if he really wanted to lot other guys could. So what it comes down to now in two thousand nineteen is that while I was a goofball loudmouth myself back in the early twenty tens I can't necessarily afford to be that way. Now in two thousand nineteen also that the enjoyment of other people are also in my stance. Just because I spent a lot of money doesn't mean I can make an ass out of myself because I am also trying to take away from the enjoyment of the other people who spent a lot of money if Tom disagrees with me or Billy Jack disagrees with. Me you go right on the head. But what it comes down to now is in our society. If we're more nervous than we've ever been before. If we're more connected than we've ever been before were this guy who would have been a no name, and what it just got kicked out of the arena twenty years ago. And we never heard who he was we never would have talked about who he was now gets milkshake duct you find out. Exactly who he is. You find out the terrible things that he said Russell Westbrook in the past on social media, you find out where he lives you find out where he works. You. Find out all the background information. And you're going to find out the guy who got thrown out with them because he was saying other racially charged things at Russell Westbrook. We need to be more responsible. What it comes down to is this. I think booing is perfectly acceptable. Cheering is personally acceptable. I think that encouragement is acceptable. And that's about it. The NBA's going to protect the brand. There was a time where if you went to the opposing place they're taking care of their players. They're taking care of their fans. If you're one of the visitors you're just going to have to deal with it. You go into the garden. You're gonna have to deal with what the garden comes with you. At you. Go into the great western forum, you deal with those folks you're gonna have to deal with that Indiana could be a tough place to play back in the early nineties. You have to deal with that. Now, they're going to protect all their players. It's all about the brand. It's all about protecting themselves making look better because they want to make sure that it's an inviting place for fans at every single arena that they're all thirty. They have good fan-friendly atmospheres. And you're kicking lots like, Shane key. So out of the arena for life. It's the same thing that what the NFL will do once somebody gets hurt in the bills mafia the same thing with the NFL's trying to do because every single Monday, we see a video on busted coverage or we see a video on TMZ a some goofball getting in a fight in the men's room. The times are a changing sometimes it's fun to have the home field homecourt advantage home ice advantage. It's a fun thing to do that. But we have to compare selves a little bit better than what we have been in the past eight five five two one two four CBS. Jerry, palm, CBS sports. Just over a half hour up next five burning questions can carbon on CBS sports radio. So excited to be the big dance. Thessaloniki very exciting guy. Kyle is a proud partner of NCWA March madness title, what kind of dog will be doing the rumba samba..

So who's going to be down there who's catch in see if we can say something? I don't think Tom actually knows the story. I'll tell this all of a sudden the pitching coach comes out. I know his name not going to say his name. He looks up to us like old boy. Silver goes, hey, you you pop it off. I says no he goes. Yeah. You think you the one pop off to shut up and watch the game for whatever reason it came over me. And again, I was a couple of drinks in. Hey, why don't you worry about your pitcher is about to get blown up and stop worrying about drunks in the stands? I sure came down. He said you didn't cost. I'm not gonna throw you out of here said, absolutely. There's a line cursing line. You can have fun. But you have to understand that there's a lot in for the rest of the game. I was quite gotta be quiet had some fun. It's gotta be quiet ended up talking to the guy that kid who was playing right field end up. No one who that kid is. Hopefully, he's going to have a nice twenty nine thousand nine season. A major league baseball now. You try to have some fun. But there's always going to be line.
