"And you worked in hockey with the golden knights and with UNLV and then you joined the bananas, the spring and have graduated to director of entertainment, which is a great title. So tell me a little bit about the baseball background of yours that you mentioned and then also how your previous jobs in sports and also, I guess your background in dance prepared you for the bananas Java. Yeah, so I didn't think there was a place on earth where I would combine my hockey baseball dance resume quite like it has here. But no, like you said, yeah, I grew up playing baseball my whole life all through high school. I was planning on a pretty high level and was fortunate enough to get a couple of offers here and there. But nothing quite to where I wanted to go and then I also was playing hockey throughout my life as well here and there. But one, once I got to school, unfortunately, I was medically disqualified due to concussions. And so that pretty much put an end to the baseball dream of mine, but throughout high school I had started performing, performing in dance with my two older sisters Lisa and Lexie, they were both involved in musical theater. And they are having a show called anything goes, which is if you're familiar with your musicals, it's a tap dance musical. And so they wanted to get me involved. And I got involved, started taking tap dancing. Back in my freshman year. And just kind of continued on that route. And I fell in love with it. And so I knew that there was something there with dance. I started taking more technical dancing with ballet and jazz and modern and all that kind of thing throughout my junior and senior year. And then when I went to college and I got medically disqualified, I switched that over to dance. And I just kind of went along with the performance and choreography aspect, which was awesome. You know, performing in front of crowds and learning about the history of dance and all that kind of thing. But shortly after, it was around my junior year is when the hockey team came to Vegas. And it was really interesting because I knew I wanted to be involved with it, but I didn't know how that was going to happen. You know, it's kind of like, yay, they're coming now what? So an audition for their promo team in ice crew and having that hockey background, it was pretty it was pretty much a no brainer to join those teams. Did the audition went really well, I was fortunate enough to get a position. And then after the first game, we did our first game and they were short on stage managers. They didn't have people that could set up everything that was going on. So myself and a couple other guys, we took over that role in that first year. And never looked back, and that's kind of where my entertainment and sports passions started to grow. I was under a great leader. Johnny Greco, who's now with the Seattle kraken. He's been a great mentor to me since day one. And he's really pushed that love for sports entertainment. And then as three years, three, four year three and four go by. It was time to take that next step and it wasn't really sure where I was going to come to until February 17th. I was playing golf at revere golf club in Las Vegas Nevada. I'll never forget I was playing with my parents and I get a video message from a 9 one two number. Who the heck can this be? Take a look at it and it's a man in the yellow tux. And thankful is an understatement for that connection to have happened and him wanting to just have the conversation and we had the conversation. And here we are here down the hatch and not looking back. That's for sure. It's been amazing. So this is an undeniably fun way to interpret the game. But I'm curious how you guys think about balancing that fun and the entertainment value that you're getting with maintaining some semblance of baseball as we understand it. And I think we talk a lot on this podcast about how different baseball would be if it were different. And we often arrive at things that we find to sort of stretch a bit too far. So I wonder if there's maybe a better way to ask this question is, have there ever been any rule changes or structural changes that you guys have thought eh, that's a bridge too far. If we were to do that, we would stretch baseball beyond even what banana ball will tolerate. Yeah, absolutely. And it comes back to our core values of who we are as a foundation. We say it every day. Fans first entertain always. So no matter what we do and no matter what way we stretch the game, we want to make sure that it gets back to being fans first. You know, is this really fans first? Is this really what our fans want? And is it entertaining? Is it really doing that and getting to that final goal of fans first entertained always? And absolutely. We're very big in the what if game? So what if the third inning was a circus? You know, what if we throw these ideas and Jesse and I have gotten really good at idea creation and throughout the season, we're doing ten ideas a day. We have a repertoire of 200 plus promotions. We're doing four new promotions every game which include player walk ups, player celebrations, new promotions, in game, and during our pregame. You know, we have a full script that is longer than a lot of proteins, regular script just for our pregame. So yeah, and we're always stretching it and there's always those there's definitely been some interesting ideas that come along with that that maybe stretch a little too far. But that doesn't mean that that idea became a diamond in the rough. And for example, with banana ball with the showdowns, the original idea was that it was one on one. So pitcher versus hitter. No field or anything like that. And we're finding that there was no way that the pitcher could get off the mound and go feel the ball and get it home in enough time to for a player to get around the bases. It just wasn't happening and it wasn't creating that ideal that perfect scenario. So we looked at the showdown and what is the perfect scenario of the showdown? Well, either pitcher strikes out, celebrates or there's a hit, and there's a play at the plate, and it's this really awesome moment. And, you know, you feel the tension in the crowd of the ball coming in and then it's making a play at the plate and boom, he's safer he's out and everybody goes crazy. So that wasn't happening with it just being the pitcher. So that's when we implemented the Fielder. So the Fielder aspect of it of having a guy be on the infield grass taking off once the hit is made during mobile last year, one of the most electric plays I've ever seen in baseball. And I've watched baseball my entire life this play was just unbelievable. We have a guy that's one of the fastest human beings I've ever seen in Malcolm Mitchell. He's playing behind the mound at ball gets head out to the wall and it's like there's no way that there's going to be a play here. This is too perfect. He takes off in a dead sprint, gets to the wall fields the ball throws it in a perfect relay, play at the plate and he's called out and everybody just goes nuts. And that's like the perfect situation. That's the perfect scenario. And it evolved from asking those questions from the beginning of what if the perfect scenario happens? So there's no such thing as a typical banana ball game, I guess it sounds like it's different from day to day..

It made me focus even more just understanding the resources that i want him to be exposed to such as books such as knowing at some point one may be bit too early but understanding how the internet could be used to take advantage of opportunities in exposure to new amazing things of the world has detrick fingertips and my my hope as a father is to make sure that he understands all the opportunities that exist through literature and connecting with the internet so he to explore in a safe way. I bet you're reading them already every night. You're only twenty eight. Your football career was cut short by a knee injury. What's your vision for yourself here. And the and the foundation going forward. I hope is to do similar activities. As i am at this very moment. And that's representing a greater cost that extends beyond my time on the football field daily. I advocate for literacy and with this partnership with a cox in their connect to compete resource. Gives me another opportunity to connect with my community and hopefully expose them to a resource. I think is beneficial to their long term success in our growth as a community in country. You know we've talked about the need for children and education but or adults it can be equally as important and in this day and age when so many people so many jobs are available for working at home families need. Yeah that's i mean you're absolutely right in. That's why this resources so astounding. It provides that opportunity to kind of break down. Maybe one of the obstacles that families may face internet access is not as accessible as one with thank in certain environments now. Twenty five of low income communities don't have access to internet in. This is a way to kind of solve that issue or work. At chipping away On it so. That's why. I'm advocating for this. That's why i hope people take advantage of it to make sure that they to have the same opportunities as.

"Bowl champion wide receiver with new england patriots and founder of the share the magic foundation. Thanks for being with us. Malcolm i appreciate you having me on. I'm looking forward to our conversation. So my give us the overview first of all of what the share. The magic foundation is all about a credit. Share the magic foundation and two thousand sixteen. I graduated from the university of georgia. I grew up a reluctant reader or striving reader to say let through some challenges. I realized that in order for me to reach my full potential as a human being those essential for me to adopt reading into my life and from that moment on i've been on this journey to encourage other students especially those who've grown up or grow up into communities that i experienced as a child i believe through reading can succeed in find our way out of hardship and that's why i started share the magic foundation and as we've just seen the people who are viewing you've written some books too. Yeah well. I always say i read a read so many books. It encouraged me to write my own and i just wanted to share the stories with students. Here's the here's the honest truth. The truth is while at the university of georgia realized that as an athlete so many people would gravitate to whatever message i sent if i decided to send a good message. People would latch onto that. If i decided to send a bad message people will latch onto that. So with this epiphany that reading could unlock the potential of our lives. I decided i would write books in hopes to send a good message to children around the world. Tell me about your involvement in the issue of the digital divide. Yeah well today. I remember growing up where the internet was seen as a luxury. I'm you know those with the fluent backgrounds could have access to the internet and devices at home but today that that's much different. The internet has become a necessity of for children to reach their full capacity and productivity in our society. And that's why. I think this partnership goes hand in hand with my focus literacy hoping to expose children to the resources needed to ensure.

"And what was your first thought when you guys were like game was over you guys. Were crowned champions. What were you thinking man. At some point throughout the game. I thought to myself you know. This can't get much worse so might as well give it all. I have and i think i don't think players admitted it but i think that's some approach that we all took. It's like okay this this look terrible but let's keep fighting because Device is not enough and at some point throughout the game. It's it's still hard to explain. How the momentum just shifted drastically in once. James white crossed the finish line and we became super bowl. Champion is just as unbelievable rush of emotion. It's beautiful when that happens because you've acquired or accomplished something that can never be taking away man and that's cool So it was fine. I definitely get definitely still. it's Some negative feedback from the falcons fans here in atlanta. You got that ring man so kudos to you gang. Congratulations for being part of such a prolific. Seen that like like. I mean talk about what we you know in the beginning of our conversation. We're talking about never giving up and you and your patriots never gave up. You're honest with yourself. I can't get any worse than i appreciate your honesty. But you're like now. I just got to give it all my all. I can right because why not right. So it's not gonna hurt me one way or the other. If i give up or if i don't give up and i keep on trying so that's another great life share with your son right so i love that now. We got the fatherhood quick five favorite film and again. I know he super young. But maybe you don't have a favorite family movie or favorite show right now but is there like a favorite family movie. You can't wait to watch with him when he gets to a certain age. You know. jasmine oakley's mother has been a drilling him with mwana. So i'm going to consider that his favorite overly right now. Do you love the singing. I'm like man we've got you know what he actually loves watching football too so he can. He can be throwing a fit. We but on On sundays on monday night we put on some football and he'll quite sit down. I think he likes to color in the movement. Lebanon so this this year. Answer might pertain mwana. But like favorite family song that you guys like to dance. Who was a family. Do you guys have one mickey mouse clubhouse yes that's a plastic right there loving Really love watching that in the morning. So we'll get out to that dog down twelve and ten.

"My kids were toddlers. We would have like flat shards for like basic math but then also to like apple or car or truck whatever. The case may be sounding out the words so spot on right there one more question before we get a little About talking a little bit about your time in the nfl. Move onto the fatherhood. Quick five but like again. I think you're a very creative person. I love how people like yourself. Have that creative part in their brains. You mentioned you author of two books and all that but like talk about your creative process when you're writing kinda you have a similar formula for the la- the first two books and if not that's fine but like what is your creative process like when you look into start storyboarding a books are very i start from louisville real place kind of identify and There's raw emotion or belief that's inside of me and think about how that story can be To make up a word. I'm about to make up a word Vicente ally for a young audience to maybe absorb so for instance. When i wrote my very favorite book and whole wide world. It's built off this very real experience of me being a struggling reader as a child and growing with that fear And then i say okay. Now that's real. But i can't tell the story that way for child to completely understand. So what can i read in to the storyline that a child may be able to resonate with. And that's when you see me start introducing the idea of sports I think at some point talking about dinosaurs. Mott's there's kind of things kids can identify with. And it's always important for me to close on on a piece of encouragement. So i would say if i had to do another three bullet point three things would be start from a real place Infused fitch and with encouragement. That's kind of how i do a picture. Book setup cool. Thank you very much for sharing that and of course a big fan of football and the nfl jet in general. Just talk to me. I mean you played at the university of georgia another powerhouse in the college football world but talk to me about your transition from college to the nfl. What was that like process like for you. The level of responsibility and accountability was through the roof So i went from the university of georgia to the new england patriots. And i think bill belichick has a reputation for having a tough system to absorb and apply immediately. And i can tell you it's He earned that reputation. Because it's not easy the amount of responsibility and accountability that he places on the players I had never experienced But i commend him because it not only made me a better athlete but made me a better person. Thank you very much and also too. I think people especially i mean you went. You went to school in georgia. You're from georgia. So people atlanta must appreciate your success but also like the super bowl that you patriots. Against the falcons like bittersweet for you talk with your friends you know atlanta and in georgia but greatest comeback in super bowl history. I remember you know. I grew up in new england. I'm a forty niners fan. But like growing up in new england. I knew that talking to my friends. They're like it's over my. Hey man bella check is like one of the best like you know you're mentioning time adjustments and all that you guys came back like at that moment where you guys started to come back and you guys win over time and pulled off a victory. What was it like to pull off that win..

"Own decisions and freedom to Break the cycle of poverty that your family might be in. So that's why i started. Share the magic foundation. That idea of literature being this thing. That can unite. I saw not on the premise. What's right or what's wrong but give us the ability to all understand. Each other is what. I began to write and talk about the inspiration for my very favorite book in in the whole wide world. Yes my very favorite book. In the whole wide world is my second book printed by scholastic publishing house. And i wrote this book to share with children that i understand the difficulties with reading inside the book. The character mentioned some words being too big on both speak to thick some sense way too long. And you know that's the truth of my reality. I grew up Very scared to read aloud in class And it just intimidated by all the words on the pages But my very favorite book in the whole wide world with kurds kids to overcome that fear because there is a book out there that can help us all accomplish. Our goal and if the book doesn't exist We can ride it for ourselves. Nice i yeah. I i love the the passion again for from that you have for reading and writing and just you know encouraging others. I think elastic was smart to team up with you to embrace moral holiday. Yeah no doubt and so talk about you know for world reading day. How about something that parents can do to help. I mean 'cause you've been helping kids with your foundation to find their love for reading. Some kids might like science fiction books or some kids might like nonfiction. Books are biographies or stories about cats. Or whatever the case may be like you said. There's a book out there for every person. But what are some of the ways that you have found that you have inspired kids to embrace reading. That parents should probably listen to because i thankfully my wife and i are very blessed with our daughters. They love to read like they have off today from riding virtual school anyways. But like they're just off. My wife. And i work from home and it's like all right. Are you guys doing their reading books. So it's like all right cool so that's awesome happy with that but for you like what are some of the things that you have found that are key success for encouraging kids to read. Let me first. Answer this question by acknowledging. Not an educator note that i get my degree in education so i don't want to sound like i have the answer i can tell you what worked for me as a child growing up in an underserved community. And what i've noticed.
"malcolm mitchell" Discussed on The Art of Fatherhood Podcast
"That idea of never giving up and you know it's always things are not always going to be a hollywood ending right so there's going to be some good days bad days but never giving up because i mean if you give up and there. Isn't that drive. So i think that's a great value and you know this is well as i do as as being a dad where you feel like you might have all the answers and you wanna be the one. That's teaching them about things i have to but we don't. We don't have all the answers right. we don't. i think that kids can show us that and for you. What is something that your son is taught you either about yourself about life. In general within two days of him being in our world. I realized i didn't have all the answers. So it's an hobbling experience being an athlete and having son accomplishments kind of foster. This idea that i knew what i was doing. And sometimes that's a good place to be but oftentimes it's a bad place to be. Because you stop trying to learn. I think when oakley came about it forced me to continue to learn and grow as an individual and like i said like we both realized that we do not have the answers. Now all we can do is continue to Try to learn more so we can position our children to be in a better place than we are. No doubt and one more question before we start talking about your book is i think you're a perfect Got answer this because you're right there in the thick of it so to speak. What is one big piece of advice. You'd offer to new dads listening to this patients because fathers at the beginning are not useless useless but needs to be more supportive than anything else and just finding patient and knowing that being a dad has extremely high value. That may not be seeing immediately. So you know. Enjoy the ride for the first month or year and now that you being there is a very big deal well said yeah i mean i think you're spot on because there's a lot of things that of course the the spouses doing the mom is doing for for the child that you just like all right what can i do what can i do. What can i do right. But like i think you're spot on where it's like the data's roles at very important and then trust me. There's gonna be times where maybe you're needed more than the mom right so Spot on answer right there man. I appreciate that and again. I gotta say said earlier. But congratulations on your book. My very favorite book in the whole wide world of course pulling where people can purchase this. I love the passion. You have reading and encouraging people through your foundation share the magic to find that passion and reading so talk to me a little bit about why you started up Share the magic but then also to kind of to talk a little bit about the inspiration for my very favorite book in the whole wide world. Sir yeah started. Share the magic foundation in two thousand six. After i graduated from the university of georgia a child i was not a reader but once i got to college i immediately realized the benefits of reading it provided Social mobility very high critical thinking skills. And just the freedom to to build your own interpretations. The situation was invaluable asset. I consider it a superpower times but the truth is in certain environments in our country the understanding of being literate in reading. It's not of extremely important and i would. I grew up in one of those environments. And i realized i wanted to give back to my community. That gift of reading because it to me represents freedom freedom of choice and freedom to.

Drew Smith from Missouri pass into the front court two pence, and they feed Brown in the left corner. He works against Garcia dribbles to the left edge of the lane at the elbow. He'll shoot with the contact knocked down the 14 footer. And he got Garcia because he created the contact. Not necessarily Andrew, but he got the call Andrew with the second foul. And Brown back to the line for an and one e would say that's kind of a dirty way to play the game. But that's a good way to play the game, actually. Garcia was close enough and the offensive player kind of Lured him into the contact. Georgia will substitute now We'll get Garcia out. Tyronn McMillan comes in Jackson Enter comes in Hornet's back in and they joined Wheeler and Johnson on the floor. Now that there's a leak just above this and where they play that way all the time.

Hashtag you, J Dog talk, Kevin at the real Butthead. Yours truly at Jeff Dance Lor TV. Okay, B. Let's start the second hour off giving credit to Kyle Trask. He had a Heisman caliber performance yesterday for Florida. 30 of 43 for 474 Yards, four touchdowns and the pick six could've been too The Bulldogs ravaged by injuries all over the defense in the secondary on the defensive line, wide receiver and running back and on the flip side, what Trask did George Ahead, struggles behind center, the Bulldogs and nine of 29 passing for just 112 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. And here's a number that really stands out 3.9 yards per attempt. Florida average 11 yards per attempt. Yeah, you know, and they did that most effectively through the air. You know, we had color callin and you know he's talking about We can't you know you're playing quarterback. We're blaming Performances from a lot of people on DH. It's not like we're hiding it. We got just thrashed on defense with the running back out of the backfield. They made good passes downfield on the two corners. They were in position. It wasn't like they were getting beat This cut. They made the place and we didn't and Trask had a great game. But I am officially done with talking about Florida players ready to move on to the Missouri Tigers. This coming Saturday went nine minutes too long. To be honest, I'm talking about the Georgia Bulldogs beat Mazu. Go, 82. They get back on top in 2021. There is no alternative plan. No, no. And Missouri's gonna be Ah, tough opponent. You know, coming off a week off there, a little fresh were not fresh it all We've got a lot of injuries. We Probably gain a couple of them back this week. We'll probably get some bad news later on the day that a couple of will be gone for a couple of weeks. So again, it's the opportunity. Not only make place and to put yourself in position to make plays, but we just need guys to make place. We Made plays this week, but we did not execute them, and that's what I'm saying. When you make a play. You get behind that defender the balls in the air. There's an opportunity for that play to be made. The execution wasn't there. That's what we have to work on this week. We've gotta execute those place so we can take advantage of the opportunities that we create. You talk about the injuries to didn't think I'd see And I certainly hoped I wouldn't see a year with injuries as bad as 2013. That's when we lost Malcolm Mitchell. I guess our first play of the season when Todd Gurley had the long touch general Todd got hurt. Keith Marshall got hurt Justin Scott Wesley Michael Bennett. I think this year is is even worse, just with the numbers there, But we'll see if the dogs could pull it together this week, get refocused on Missouri and find a way because in this season and it's been a challenge for everyone, but especially for teams that did not have that continuity and in George's case. A reworked offensive line, a new quarterback, a new offensive coordinator changes at wide receiver there not having that spring practice, hitting those teams that had a lot of turnover there. I think a lot worse of those teams that did have stability. Yeah, it's how you react to him. I mean, and you know we've got capable players in there, but they're all lacking that one. Great word experience, and we're getting it through flames and fire right now and good and bad, And that's how he grows. A football team. Georgia take a step back, absolutely took a step back.

You know they're back in front of us right now, atleast for this season right now at this moment, and that's something that you know, George has got to work on as a whole.

"malcolm mitchell" Discussed on Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin
"Evan, let's feast on some minicamp notes, and I want to start with some running backs. And in particular, some former Georgia running backs we finally found out. Mystery that is Sony, Michelle. I don't think this came as much of a surprise to me. I mean when the guy hadn't been seen in a few weeks, knowing what is history was. I thought he probably had to get his niece coped or they're doing something there, which to me it just baffles. My mind again that the patriots took him in the first round like taking a running back where the known degenerative knee in the first round just seem so against everything that patriots. Do it's really interesting. But he was a good player for last year. And they won the Super Bowl. So what do I know? Yeah. Yes. So the first we heard about Sony, Michelle's new problems was really right before last year's draft Mike Lombardi and Mike Mayock then of NFL network now, of course, the raiders GM they were both talking about it before last year's draft. They said that they were some concerns that Sony, Michelle had an arthritic knee, but Michelle never miss time in high school or college with with the knee injuries. You know, he goes in he did miss time as a freshman at Georgia because of a fractured shoulder, but never with the knee. But, you know, I think it was discovered it was probably discovered at the combine I remembered, he had to go back for the medical check. And he re injured that same knee in training camp. He missed the preseason and week one it was characterized as a hyperextension. But man, he, he missed a lot of time. I think that he might have had an initial knee scope. During training can't last year, and then he got healthy, and he got into shape and he took over and the average nineteen touches per game with twelve touchdowns over the final fourteen games, but you did not make it through the season unscathed, and as we just found out and it happened kind of late in the process because patriots beat writer said had seen him on may twentieth on the practice field. So he did not have the scope until late may slash early June. So I mean it's not like he just got it taken care of right after the season, I think we could characterize this as a setback to patriots clearly had ongoing concerns even after how strong finished about him. They used a second pick on Damian Harris. They're bringing back James, white James white as the most secure role in the backfield. Rex Burkhead has also back there. Paid money to get back Brandon Bolden who's going to take up a roster spot. A fifty three men in a forty seven man or whatever it is now. Forty forty six forty five forty six man roster spot because he's so good on special teams. So this is, you know, this is the toughest that we, we've had the patriots backfield to sort out in a while, usually it's just three guys. But now we have like essentially five, and maybe even sixty if you want to count James Devlin, because he does count as a running back and he's going to be on that on the, the game day actives list. So I'm moved Sony, Michelle down from my RB eighteen to my RB twenty four and I moved up Damian Harris so that he's like right on the fringe of the top fifty running backs. Let's get to another Georgia running back, which, by the way, you know, just as an aside, Alabama, always gets a bad rap for this, you know, guys coming into the league beat up, but you'd think about, like, Mick Chubb with the tornadoes, yell in college, Georgia, Sony, Michelle came into the league with the g-gender of knee. And now he's had it scoped again. Girly had the tourney yell in college. And as the degenerative knee. I mean these guys are all like underage twenty five I think girlies what like twenty five twenty six so it's not just Alabama where you know, you can get a pounding, which what's ironic, by the way, is that girlie came into school with Wu's it, Keith Marshall and they totally rotated like his three years, and he missed a lot of year with tourneys yell and Sony. Michelle and Nick Chubb came in the same year. So you'd think that, that would really have lessened their chances. Is to get these major injuries or to have the wear and tear, yet it didn't they still are all, you know, coming off injuries or have had significant issues. Yeah. You know, another guy Malcolm Mitchell at Georgia came in the league with kind of a similar situation. He unfortunately had to retire recently, but it really talented guy who came into the league with major injury and specifically concerns. Again. We've talked a decent amount so far about Todd Gurley but Todd Gurley did not participate in OTA slash minicamp and what I'm still leaning on with regard to Todd Gurley is just the tangible evidence in. That's the teams moves GM's coaches. These guys can say things to us that really aren't truthful, and press conferences in combine interviews. They can lie straight to our face, but they can't lie to us in their transactions, the Rams, matched the lions restricted free agent offered. A Malcolm Brown, the traded up for Darryl Henderson, in the top seventy five and I, I feel like they've told us multiple times publicly whether it be through, Ian Rapoport because. You'll less needs wife is CARA Henderson. She worked at NFL network for a long time, you know, NFL network, NFL network is based out in LA. You know, they have really solid Rams connections. And whether it be through, Ian Rapoport or the Rams the Rams publicly they've told us multiple times at Todd Gurley is not going to be the workhorse that he used to be. So right now, I have Todd Gurley kind of going back and forth in the Rb twelve Rb fifteen range and every time that I look at my rankings. I think I think about moving him down further. I haven't drafted him once so far this off season. Some people are saying this is a chance to get a value on Todd Gurley. I'm not sure what do you think you think that this is a situation where people are overreacting and Todd Gurley is going to be just fine or what you re on the situation Ross? Well, I thought the best point made so far was made by j d who is the Rams color analyst on the radio and his friends with Todd Gurley where he basically said, they've got a plan they're going to manage this because they want to try to make sure Todd is explosive all year and he said, I forget to cope, but he's like you're not going to see him out there for fifty sixty snap. It's going to be less than that. So really, there's a several factors. One is how the knee feels how the younger and other guys, Malcolm Brown Henderson do when when edge there snaps when their reps if they're really flourishing. I think you'll see girl even more spot duty because I think they want to save them for the stretch run in the playoffs. If those guys are struggling you might see more of girly earlier. So they wanna make sure they at least get to the dance. Get to the to the. Chance. But really, you're just betting Evan on. You say it's a volume game. I just don't think the volume's going to be there for him. So you'd be betting that he's going to be very effective on fewer touches then he's gotten the last couple of years. Yeah. I was listening to Pat Kirwan kirwin on Sirius XM radio talk about situation too. And he thinks is going to happen is Todd Gurley. He's not going to be able to work out as much she's not going to be in his good shape. You know, he's going to get in the pool, but he's not he's just not going to be optimal form. And you know, maybe the template that in one of his best games last year was the playoff game against the Cowboys. Next set next. Ten stats had that is his most explosive game all season in wanna say he had sixteen or eighteen touches in that game. So that might be the template for where they want him from a usage standpoint. But you know now they have other guys are they really have four backs that they can use? They've got Todd Gurley. They've got Malcolm Brown. They resigned. They've got Daryl Henderson, who for whom they traded up. They've also got John Kelly who was looked pretty good in the preseason last year. So they have a lot of options there right now a lot more options than they did at this time last season. And I think it's, you know, yeah, I think that we're just gonna see his his workload scaled back and I think that he's going to end up being drafted really. She should end up being drafted as like an Rb to this year. Let's get to another running back a guy. I'm very familiar with for multiple reasons one watching every snap of his at Penn State and number two, now that he's with the eagles, and I thought maybe I was at eagles many camp on Tuesday, and I thought, maybe, you know, they'd been saving mile Sanders and hoping that he could participate in mandatory minicamp, but probably the smart decision to give that thing six more weeks to heal the hamstring that he pulled so that he can be ready for training camp. And I don't think it's going to affect his availability for the season. And I know there's a long history of running backs as rookies that have success, I would just say it's not easy. Anybody has ever rookie? We'll tell you it's not easy. There are some nuances some things you have to learn especially in the passing game. And to miss everything in the spring, it's a lot. I mean he'll be behind. I don't know if it's actionable, but I think it's just something to note, especially when you've got Clement and Smallwood and Jordan Howard and those guys still there they seem to like this Boston Scott as maybe a. Darren sproles type of role so we'll see how quickly mile Sanders can play catchup during training camp. Like I said, I don't think it's enough to move him anywhere from where you think of him, but I would say it's absolutely something the monitor during preseason games which would be what's his health like in the preseason is, is y'all way back in the hamstring. And then also, you know, does it look like he's clearly the number one guy or one and one b with Jordan Howard. Or is it seemed like they might bring them along a little bit slower just because he missed out on a bunch of reps in the spring. So that would be my take on mile Sanders. I don't know if you have a different one. Now mine is very, very similar don't like the idea of any rookie missing reps in the spring basically missing the entire spring as mile Sanders did the hamstring injury. I mean you can get out of shape. I think. Because how many tales have we heard this happened Joe mixon a couple years ago? Now, many tales have we heard of rookies incoming rookies having you know, like a soft tissue injury. Not being able to get on the field, not being not being able to do anything really except for hit the bite because there's not a whole lot. You could do you just have to let it heal with rest, especially with a hamstring injury. So in my experience,.

I'm tandis Presley the Super Bowl brings a lot of superstar talent to Atlanta among the athletes who made the trip it's a Super Bowl champion. Georgia BULLDOGS who is putting together his own championship community team, Malcolm. Mitchell says reading created for him a path that led him to become a Super Bowl champion three years ago. Now, he's working combined the excitement of the Super Bowl with the magic of Redick. Mitchell is a former Georgia BULLDOGS and New England patriot is former bulldog teammates and a bunch of NBA greats were all in when he said company readers for Malcolm's share the magic foundation. It was an event he hosted earlier this week with former Lieutenant governor Casey K goal when I was in college. I found out that reading was probably the most important thing any person could do to give themselves the best opportunity Theresa. Their full potential to pull the most out of themselves. Reading makes you challenge. Whatever thoughts you have. And I think because of that you began to open your mind to experience new things Rita can take many places reading just gives you the ability to communicate effectively like we are right now. And I think it's very important. And it was very important for me. Once I noticed the magical pals of reading that I spread on to every kid, I possibly could. And it was just the goal from my from that moment moving forward, and that helped me come up with the magician's hat, a children's book that I wrote while I was at the university of Georgia to influence kids to read because I truly believe that reading can help us accomplish every dream. And I believe truly changed the world. Now, would you got to Georgia? It wasn't that. You could not read errors that you did not in your opinion read well enough to do the work that you were going to be expected to do is is that is that a fair assessment? That's that's a very fair assessment. It's not that. I couldn't read at all or would have been impossible to get into college. But it was I wasn't reading effectively, and I definitely was reading on the level that I should have been in. That was clear for me to see what's I sat in my classroom. I never forget I was an English eleven two. And this girl beside me began to read the passage that the teacher was requesting how to read and I heard or read and all I could think was. There is no shot accurate that will. And it just made me feel a fear. And it made me realize that I wasn't being the best person. I could be because I wasn't truly being the best in every area of life that I possibly could. And a majority of that came from reading now Mackel told me a little bit about your parents. And their encouragement of you along the way to get you to where you are today. So grew up in a single parent. Household just my mother, and she is the reason why I am who I am today. She has never told me anything it was impossible. And every time I've reached for a goal playing football reading books become an author. She has always encouraged me to do whatever was necessary to get that done. Well, growing up, you know, we faced some financial troubles that made her always have to work. So I understand where or parents like my mom loved their children and want the best for them. But there are some challenges that they face. Well, they can always be around. There are many young men who perhaps experienced what you experienced sitting in class next to the lady who read the passage as requested and you're thinking, wow, I don't know if I can do that. Or if I could ever be able to do that. And because of the opportunity of being a student athlete at the university of Georgia or anti-cholera university in the United States would have just been like. Okay. Well, I'm I I know what I'm gonna do. So I'm just going to do what I need to get by. And that is not the young man, you were that is not the man you are today. What was it inside of you that said I had to fix this. And I gotta fix it. Now. You know, what have been easy for me to say? I can't really like her. But she can't catch a pass like me, you know. But for me. The most important message. The my mom's ever sent is become the best person, you can possibly be not the best athlete. Not the best student. Not the best lawyer docked just the best person you can possibly be poor the most out of yourself. And while I was sitting there. I realized that I was not doing that in that bothered me, and I wanted to fix it. And from that moment on I started reading, and I tell you my life changed from separately. Deciding to read books read, effectively, it's just it's magical. How the transformation takes place. Now, my brother was a walk on player at the university of Georgia back in the day way. Before you, I remember what his schedule was like how in the world. Did you find time to write a book with practice rehab class? Reading everything that's expected of you to do you wrote a book as a student how? Just shift my priorities a little bit, you know, instead of going out or watching SpongeBob on TV. You know, I sit down I'll try to think of an idea for a book. Well, I had to finish my work early yet the work done while I was in class instead of after and to make good enough grades where the coaches will take me off of the mid list. So that extra free time would be freed up for you to go off and do other stuff that I'd like and. You'll always find time for the things that mean the most to you. And at the time getting his book done for kids to read was very important. Tell me about the magician's hat. Where'd you get the idea to write a story for the kids? So the magicians had act majority of it comes from personal experience inside there's a magician that comes to the library to teach kids a couple of tricks. You know, but his favorite trick of all is showing kids through reading they can accomplish their goals and become the best person that could possibly be and make their drain free. And that's where reading there for me. I tell people all the time that reading first off the book in itself was a dream come true. And I happened to reading going to play football for the patriots. As a dream. Come true. You think and I'm and I'm one hundred percent positive that happened because of reading. And that's what the book is there to encourage kids to do just give reading the try. And I promise you, it'll take you wherever you wanna go you're doing reading rallies with young people. Tell me about those album reading rallies is actually a program. I sit up through with Malcolm programs, and it's going to school and do an hour long pep rally for reading hence, the name reading rallies, and I go in high energy and just motivate the kids as much as I possibly can to get the understand that reading can truly help you read and can be cool. And I go in and those books and every kid gets a copy of the magicians had those books are funded through our share the magic foundation, which allows kids to get the copy take it home keep forever. And it also helps with book ownership because majority of kids don't have age appropriate books at home. And how do I know that's true because I was one of them. And I love how in the magicians had when he does the tricks now giving too many spoilers that the child reaches inside the hat, and you think something different is going to be pulled out. But in fact, the child each child pulls out a book, a book, just for them, whatever their heart desires, there's a book out there to help them reach that goal and get in the way, you structured your story. There's always got to be the bad guy. You know, the smart alecky kids in the back. Who's like is this isn't it? This is a scam. This isn't magic and you turn that on its head to don't you, Malcolm? Yes. Because you can't the the trick is in great part about that moment in the book is that you can't trick yourself. Your heart knows exactly what you want. So when the magician acts the kids reach inside the hat, and he tries to trick the magician. The magic comes from within. It's truly not the magician after all. In case, you're just joining us. We are in studio with the acclaimed author Malcolm Mitchell his book, it's a children's book. It's a delightful story. It's the magician's hat and as in case right, Malcolm, Mitchell, former university of Georgia wide receiver Super Bowl champion, Malcolm Mitchell. What kind of books do you like to read? Now the last a while of fiction books. I just love books that can sweep you off my feet and take me to an entirely different place. It's an entirely different universe. You have plans to write another children's book. What are you thinking about? Yes. I actually signed a three book deal with scholastic publishing. So I have two more to do with them. And I always like to add a little fish in my books. So they'll always involves some truth some fiction, I blended together to make a fun cool story, the fun cool story. Tell me about the 'lustration I love, and we wanna make sure that we give due recognition to the straighter that you work with on this tell me about how that was JoAnne. You communicated your vision. And then she made this really magic on the pages. Alright JoAnne is phenomenal. She's she's actually in Amsterdam. That's where she lives. Wow. The time and the publisher scholastic connected both of both of us her. And I and I share my vision. I said the book is the magician's hat. I wanted to feel and look magical. I want the pages to be full of color, very, vibrant. And I want a couple Dr pages here and there to throw it off. She did exactly that. I can't be more happier with the way the book turned out and every vision that I have for the book. She definitely put down on the pages. What is it that you want young people to know if they don't remember anything else when they get a chance to be with you about reading, and why reading is cool..
"malcolm mitchell" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"I know is. I don't care what happened before twenty eighteen. I only care about two thousand eighteen Tom Brady had his greatest season ever in two thousand eighteen really. And I don't even care about their their film breakdown. How they came to top five all I know it was his greatest achievement of his whole career. And it's the greatest quarterback career in the history of pro football. And you have to look at the overall impact and the degree of difficulty because I'm going to tell you. You actually agreed with me on this Bill Belichick provided the worst defense. He's ever provided Tom Brady and they're nineteen years together. This was the worst and Bill Bill check eventually provided Tom Brady with the worst receiving core. He's had in any of his nine thousand nine seasons in the National Football League. And you agreed with me on this last week on both accounts. Right. Am I right about that? Because this year was there a Brandin cooks know, Danny amendola. No Martellus Bennett. No, Malcolm Mitchell. No Dion Lewis. No all gone in camp. They try Eric decker. Then they try Montgomery Jordan Mathews from Vanderbilt and then they try Kinney Brit cut cut cut. And then what happened Julian Edelman was gone for the first four games and only in the last two weeks. Have I seen him reestablish a little bit of the burst. He used to have. And that's what Tom Brady had to deal with all year long. By your account. You're the hall of Famer tight end. You said rob gronkowski has hit the wall gel of self. He's still hurting run. Can't John doesn't want to take a hit anymore hands or going bad because he's flinching. So that's become a liability at the tide in position. Right. And you talk about their running game. Would you say they finished fifth in the league overall? But why would I want, but wait a second? Guess what? They finished twentieth in yards per rush. Is that good? That's not good. So that doesn't really help you when you're twentieth and yards per rush. That means you keep handing off handing off handing off and you're going nowhere fast. Does that help him yet? Despite everything I just said without the Miami miracle or we should call it debacle. The last play the game at Miami Tom's house of horse where he played his best game of the year three hundred and fifty eight yards passing and three touchdowns and no interceptions. Without that last crazy play allowed in large part by Bill Belichick. He bears. The most responsibility said the Shannon yard without that one. Play Tom Brady right now owned. The number one seed in see that's his greatest achievement and he does have the two seat. He does have a by any as. The tooth Seton in spite of Tom Brady really mentioned in spite of where this help I'm going to talk about LeBron avid Noel, he's got. No, hell, no. He left here. How about this? What what happened in the last game? Why don't we just see against the jets Tom Brady had to throw eleven targets at Chris HOGAN who over his previous eight games this year had fourteen toll target's and it gets buffalo. The previous week had zero targets it came to your dressing only three wide receivers. I gotta throw eleven.
