I'm just waking up and getting the pizza and chicken on those coach man. What do you think this new coach jon gruden. I michael thompson greg full names and i think that i think that he's doing a great job and if you look at hard knocks in you see all the things that i'm seeing you're seeing a coach. That's taken all all the time so they can't concentrate on the players. I mean you might get a story about a player once in a while but when jon gruden is breaking down and in russia the pastor that they wanna love rushing the passer man for this because you got rid of the guy that you're russia the peasant but we couldn't afford a man. He's a good player but that's just not. We shouldn't get into that now. John lewis. It isn't a crazy thing man. You gotta put that at money in the bank. We don't have that kind of money the raiders michael thompson. What do you think you know coach. I watch jon on gruden. I see how he's handling this antonio brown helmet issue. If you had to deal with fred bulletin a cough or or warren wells or cliff branch with a helmet issue. How would you handle it coach sneddon. I probably would have had those guys. Go out there without helmets. If you're the same if you've seen those guys off the field daryl lanos guys they probably public could use the helmets off the field more than they needed a minefield because i feel you knew where they were going. They knew the direction and off the field. I really we are going to happen. We you're listening to caspian los angeles to turn off our coast. It's it's our weekly hard. Knock segment the first michael so you've gotten a chance to participate in us now coach last night there was singing. They made the rookie sing and it was pretty bad. A what was your opinion of the singer well well. I thought the whole point is to just get up there and have the team camaraderie and when they started doing a hunter renfro recreation. That's the trouble trouble man. You gotta get better. You can't be you know lean on me when you're not strong. That's not good man. I although the week before i had trouble singing happy birthday remember that happy birthday. I don't know the word should have done it as a haiku man. We're talking to the coach of the raiders news on the day after a hard knock coach. Do you late on at night and dream about the super bowl matchup against your brother jay in the super bowl but i don't think they have a chance chance and that's a that's a big dream for him. I'd be his nightmare to my room but yeah j. J. got his hands full man he he doesn't have all set and ready to go like our theme is man object hold on a second. Give me one second. They buy that tonio brown still looking for a helmet with that dog and those kids from the seventies we coach. You're you're part of hard. Knocks last night followed you and your wife to support your son who wants to be a professional fighter. Aren't you worried that he's going to get hurt. Whoa how do you feel about one of your own kids becoming a professional fighter. Well you know i've been a fighter. My entire life just met a physically as opposed to physically man. I think he's is going to be fine. I watched some of those clips though might wanna keep his hands up a little bit more. They've gone down a little bit that whole time so <hes> support my children man so support my son deuce as becoming ram man and he man the movie coach. Now you remember your time in tampa bay. You hold on a second michael thompson. That's what i call yeah. I know it says name man. The only guy is going to beat out my son deuce for ram man or the juggernaut jay glazer mass.

She only clip we have is view yelling to get him out of the game because he was screwing up fake news man. I think that's one of those what they call those things those what are those videos that got where they put the other person's face on another person deep fake. That's a deep fake audio man who was a bigger wide receiver diva keyshawn or antonio eliot brown. Oh man i haven't even noticed antonio brown being any sort of diva whatsoever man although i haven't noticed where he is either can't find the the guy you can't notice them. Diva nate man.

You won't believe your eyes and ears. Every time i go in there i stay for at least an hour to see all the new stuff mir audio video the official audio and video retailer of the los angeles lakers mason and ireland e._s._p._n. L._a. mason and ireland show michael thompson information muster only coming up in fifteen minutes and fasttrack right after that michael the cowboys now have offers out to their three the highest profile players ezekiel elliott dak prescott and amari cooper. What are the office. What are the offer said well. We don't exactly steven jones jerry son and the cowboys v._p. Thinks all these guys should take less money less money so that dallas can keep all three. Here's what john said quote. I have a lot of respect respect for you know most agents i really do. I think they're trying to do the job for these players but anything sometimes they don't have the endgame that maybe the players should and that we do and quote so here's my question for you. Michael should players take less in order for the team to fit more guys under the salary cap and isn't it the agents job to get the most money. They possibly can for their client. Yes a know it all depends. Obviously tom brady's been taking a lot less but he's married to a supermodel. She's worth three million two hundred million by by now anyway <hes> batons from taking less money i guess but this is their first. I like if clay came to you and said dad. The warriors came to me and they said they want me to take less so they consigned draymond katie igwe dala everybody. What would you say <hes> you know the pennant how much less obviously because these guys are generation generational money and he was a situation. The warriors didn't do this of course yeah they a magazine max amount but if it came down to that and he was happy there and if he were status fire with the his decision eventually. I don't know i mean it was kinda. Kinda like that way but kemba walker this year <hes> he was eligible for two hundred twenty million bucks now he knew he was going to get that so he could have gotten anywhere from one fifty to two hundred in twenty million and the and he i heard he was willing to take one seventy five. That's a lot as a big draw as fifty seven million dollars from twenty one and i think the horn is often one sixty but it just wasn't enough so he took less four one forty to go to boston. He still going to be just fine right but in that situation <hes> so much when you're talking about where it's ten million dollars less than what you could have gotten vows in this situation and i was happy and i had a chance to win and continue to win and i was able to. I live frugally anyway. Even though i like my case i'm not a guy jewelries kind of cars and most bit and tat five thousand dollar suits boots. If our situation i was very happy where i was. I will take a little less to stay so we can keep the core together to continue to win rings. That's what i would do but it all depends on how much less if he's asking if if elliott asking for seventy five over four years and they come back with forty over four years that's too big a gap so you gotta be able to meet somewhere in the middle. What is being reported is that elliott has been offered a deal that would make him. The second highest paid running back in the n._f._l. More more than living bell but less than tied goriest around fifty that you know when you factor in the economics of it ireland and this is important to that that comes into play even window elliot will make a slightly less than girly. He's going to take home more pay than girly because he lives in a note income tax state for state state state income. Tax growing is paying thirteen percent on his salary so even though he comes on a little less than girl. He's actually making more money. I'll take it home more money than girly so you got a factor actor in texas. No state taxes rule to if if elliott says i'm not gonna play in texas and goes play a safe for the giants or in some other the office ten to fifteen fifty percent of state taxes you actually losing money so he's going to let me make an important point is only gonna count but let me make important because i count everybody else's money yeah about what you just said ou they you know but i don't think most of our audience knows it's not as the big of a tax advantage as it sounds like here's why why even you and i as broadcasters get taxed where where we do the work day but you so you and i have but that's they only play sixteen weeks a year if they make it to the playoffs and go up to twenty and then you know they near notice guys playing the preseason so for example when ezekiel elliott came and played in the first round against it was the second round against the rams last year in the playoffs the tax thirteen percent for that week because he played that week salary correct because he played that much yeah michael for me and you if you you and i you and i have to file taxes in all the states where we do games. It can't be that much ireland no otherwise he won't be bringing any money. No no no michael. He goes to play the giants. They probably like twelve percent over there. You get paid for where you play. What comes to call it. That doesn't sound right michael no this you have to file tax return turn. I do you or your accountant does he. You're you're you're a one percenter your community okay so for example. You and i filed tax returns. We have to a file. We have to fill out a w. Two in pennsylvania and new york and floor will not florida and texas tech's but in georgia and in in utah and in oregon and you know anywhere because that's where we did the work so we have to for that game we have to pay. Hey taxes in that state so elliott's making say one hundred thousand game. He's got to pay thirteen thousand dollars for that game and then when he goes to new york's i gotta give another twelve for that game when he goes back to texas. He gets it all yeah. That's how it works so when you go so but but michael steele he gets eight home. I'm game in dallas so he does make more money but i always hear that for m._b._a. Players like they say well. If you go to texas you. Could you know it's going to be much less. What's going to be for forty one games. It's going to be last <music> but when they play the kings of the warriors of the clippers the lakers they get taxed. They text us like you and i do so it's not a it's not as it is a significant tax advantage but it's not as big as as they might make it out to be now. Do you believe we're talking about a lot of numbers and mumbo jumbo do you. I believe ezekiel elliott will be in uniform anytime during the first two weeks of the season. Are they gonna play a couple of games without him. <hes> like talking about the day they got until next wednesday before of course horsa opening weak opening sunday so he thinks wednesday's kind of like the bottom line if he's going to play in week one <hes> so would you throw them out. There would season preseason. A lotta guys haven't played look at the rams guys in practice. He's been working out in. You know he's a now hob- oh yeah. He's a four year veterans so he knows what he's doing so yet. Put them right away. I think it'll get resolved before week. One dollar like he said this morning in keyshawn knows football anybody else around you times a million he he says it's all about a couple of million dollars probably usual bet mortimer. I say he will not be in uniform will euro and one dollar. I nine did not think he will be there when and they roll that around i it just doesn't make any sense for either side to cave now because they opened up against the giants. They meet the giants without ezekiel elliott in dallas. I'd have to look that up. I think it might be in new york coming up next buster olney e._s._p._n. Top baseball guy buster was here on sunday. He worked the <hes> the yankees dodgers dodgers series and so we could talk to him about that and everything else going on in baseball and we're about twenty minutes away from fast track michael information e._s._p._n. L._a. all right. We look forward this every week. A chance to talk to buster only brought to you by rex real estate learn why thousands are demanding more from the real estate agent and choosing rex to buy or sell a home visit visit rex homes dot com. That's r._e._x. Homes dot com and buster joins us now buster. How are you doing great. Get ready a stretch drive montego yeah now you are here over the weekend for what i thought was a really interesting series and the yankees were pretty dominant as a matter of fact. We haven't talked about this yet today. Buster michael and i but major league baseball came out today and admitted that on the saturday game the saturday afternoon game when brett gardner owner took out max muncie second base home plate empire called time gleyber torres was running home and that should have been allowed. They should have allowed that and that would have tied the game and the yankees could swept the dodgers but overall the yankees. Were really dominant in your opinion buster. If you're a yankee fan how significant is ended up your dodger japan. How worried should you be. I think it's more meaningful for the yankees it. They had a good weekend against the dodgers because let's face it. If the yankees play the dodgers and the world series aries if the yankees play the astros in the american league playoffs it's going to be about the rope-a-dope about the first five innings <hes> whether or not they can hang in there against teams that clearly on paper have better starting rotations because if they can do that if they do the muhammad ali for four or five innings in hang in there in the last four or five innings. You know he's five through nine in my opinion. The yankees have decided advantage over any team because of how deep their bullpen is <hes> and so the fact that that you know they got a good start out of james paxton. The fact that mingo vermont again showed <hes> that he's a low heart rate guy. He was very comfortable in a big game on sunday night and matched <hes> went toe to toe with clayton kershaw think it was really encouraging for them on the other hand with the dodgers look. We're not gonna know until we get into the postseason seventh and eighth inning okay. Do they have someone who can do that job a buster is it worth it for justin turner to appeal a one game suspension or they just serve it. All about the money doesn't want to lose no. I you know and he you know he's gonna be fine at some point but he actually doesn't lose <hes> a game check. Check from that the i. I think what happens in so many of those cases. Is that a lot of times. The union has filed the appeal before even really talking to the player <hes> <hes> and at some point when the player gets involved in the players and the manager decide okay. What's the most convenient for the team and i suspect that that's what's going on that. <hes> you know justin in the dodgers have talked about okay. You're gonna play on thursday. You're gonna play on friday and we're gonna have you off on saturday. That's the day you take your suspension or they can just appeal it and wait. Wait till they get to september. When the rosters open up the the dodgers won't be in a roster crunch cody bellinger is he the no doubt n._b. M._v._p. This year i think he's the front runner <hes> look christianity saw last year went absolutely crazy in the last month and the brewers are hanging on the edge of the playoff race so if if yellow chat a huge september and the and the brewers found the way in the postseason i don't think that's out of the realm of possibility but for me right now cody would be slammed on he he would be the guy <hes> you know not only because of what he's done offensively but his defensive metrics are crazy like the advantage that he gives the dodgers defensively <hes> <hes> and you know when he runs the bases. I think are two things that people haven't talked about enough. How close are we to automatic. Balls strike calls michael. I think that that's something we're going to see after the next labor agreement and we've talked about how the the relationship between the union and major league baseball's that's probably at its worst since i started covering baseball thirty years ago <hes> and there's a big mountain to climb in actually getting an agreement but it wouldn't all surprise me if that's part of what's discussed i <hes> that among many other issues at the you know the two sides agreed to go to a a robo strike zone. I personally <hes> look look. I mean if you're an umpire you don't want part of your profession taken away but i do think it would improve <hes> improve the product because we saw situations last night. We're just invert burland is unhappy with the strike call and he complains and there's an injection and <hes> every game that you watch now. If there's a borderline call the goes against a hitter he goes in looks at the video starts screaming at the empire i mean after a while that that stuff gets kind of tired and wanted to move along so so if the players association precision took a poll with the players in favor of going to automatic strike zone i believe so i and i and i only basis loose very loosely off <hes> a lot of conversations with players through the years. I think it'd be like eighty twenty because they're feeling in favor of <hes> a robo strike zone because i think they're feeling is is is that they just want. You know if the pitch that's <hes> you know one one pitch. That's just two inches off. The plate is called the strike. They hate increasing land players. <hes> just hate the idea of losing that advantage and they just want the strike zone to be called as accurately as possible and let's face it. These are human beings behind the plate and every game. We're gonna see stakes made buster. I've always this the speed the game up the purest greg bergman yell at me and tell me i'm an idiot but how about this. I always thought baseball game the relievers down there warming up for twenty minutes when when the manager calls them in why does it take eight war pitches. Why does this throw the first pitch and go i well. I think the rationale they would tell you who is that they want some warm up pitches to get used to the mound on in the middle of a diamond. It's funny because through the years of so many pitchers telling me that yeah while you have the groundskeepers who maintain the the mound in the middle of the field are the same ones who do the mounds in the in the bullpens sometimes the mounts can be different and so they just want that time time for adjustment but when baseball has talked about in a different ideas for speeding up the game your ideas one of the that has been discussed. I don't think it's probably at the top of the list. It's probably number four five and i wouldn't be surprised at some point if they actually do come up with some sort of adjustment to reduce the number of pitches at the pick guys take when they go out there. We're talking with e._s._p._n.'s buster. Only who was in los angeles over the weekend dodgers yankees sunday night at the ravine buster we will smith with the new dodger catcher on the show monday and i guess the best way to describe it is whatever it is he has it. You can tell talking to him. He's just he's gotta make up about him. He's next johnny bench well. Here's my question buster. I think they threw him in there at catcher because it was their best option. Austin barnes earns wasn't hitting russell. Martin was a little banged up but he's played so well. I'm wondering is is he won. The job is the experiment experiment over in your opinion. Yes and what we're seeing. The dodgers doing with will smith is basically unprecedented in baseball history. Okay <hes> because you know we've seen relievers. Come up at the end of the season have an impact francisco rodriguez. Maybe the great example that doesn't swell in nineteen eighty <hes> sometimes you see position players come up rookies and they'll have an impact toward the end of the year but the idea of calling up a catcher a rookie catcher to basically become the number one guy to take over a veteran staff for eighteen world series expectations this is not you know some fringy team this is is it team that's world series or bust and a hand the reins over to somebody that young as far as i can see looking back through baseball history it's never happened this late in the year and it says so much not only about you know his defensive skills which from talking with his college coach last week and <hes> evaluators basically been present since he was in high school not only about his offensive improvement which has happened gradually over the last three four years but it's also about his maturity and the name that keeps popping up time after time after time when i talked with evaluators <hes> is buster posey they say he's an buster posey and it's not only about the size and the skills skills but it's also about the demeanor and i know you sat him on the phone the other day <hes> and you could tell he he's very serious. He's all business. He's very bright by all accounts. He is tremendous accurate. Clayton kershaw was very complimentary about that but he he's not someone who speaks because he wants everyone to hear his voice. He speaks weeks when necessary and he's very serious about his work and he's got a lot of responsibility on his shoulders and says a lot about that. The dodgers entrusted him with the situation that he's again now and he can get a table at nobu anytime he wants to. Hey i says will smith probably that probably we're talking to buster on the okay okay buster. The angels haven't been getting a lot of fanfare their their season kind of spiraled after the the tragic death of tyler skaggs. They've really been unable to put it together so this week they called up. Joe adele and michael lives in orange county said if you seen joe adele play eddie said no singer buster. I don't think most people full have seen this kid play. He's twenty. He's the same age mike trout was when the angels trout. What do you know about joe adele that he's going to be a monster player <hes> that he is going to be someone who's going to be <hes> mike trout swing man for years to come and he's he is a high impact that guy. He's a tremendous athlete. He looks like <hes> middle linebacker playing baseball <hes> you know where it is incredible physicality and it's interesting this thing but when trout's signed last spring and everyone are so many in the you know the national media a lot of fans were like why would he consign himself to losing for years to come and i i laughed because i had gotten a chance to see joe adele play and i was like nah he he's going to have some good players around him and joel <hes> wherever tried hits in the lineup moving forward to whether it's continue staying the two spot joe. L. is going to be right next to him. At some point how good he is. Buster looks like a small market team like kansas city who the owner paid. Hey ninety six million dollars for is announced marketing some. Somebody's gonna buy for one billion dollars. Does this inspire other owners the cash in when they see what kansas the city's going for i do think that <hes> you know look. It's not only the royal it's actually over one billion dollars what <hes> what i'm hearing during <hes> believe it or not <hes> and we saw the marlins who have been a disastrous franchise in terms of their success in terms of their attendance and they sold for what over a billion dollars dollars and you know. They're gonna be teams it. I think there's a lot of speculation the industry about whether a team like the orioles might be for sale at some point they would be a not that withdrawal of interest <hes> you know people have always wondered at some point. Would the wilpon family ever put <hes> the mets out on on the on the on the market get but yeah shoot. I mean that's that's one thing we've seen is an frank mccord. The former owner the dodgers can speak to this no matter how you run on your team the franchise no matter what your attendance has been the franchise values and baseball has gone up so much that you're gonna make a lot of money buster lasting for you by. Where are you guys this week. We're sending baseball. Go this sunday. We are going to be in philadelphia got. The mets and the phillies both <hes> trying to hang on in the wild card race. Okay madness gurjin. Who we i know a little bit who you work on the games with had was in a column out here tom hofer who wrote in the l._a. Times this week and he had an idea that i guess john smoltz else has been pushing and i wanted to get your two cents on it. Vest gurjin idea is that in one thousand nine hundred one because there was a strike they split the season into into the dodgers won the first half and then they just reset and that's how the dodgers got into the playoffs. They played the second winter and then the dodgers eventually won the world series. Fest gurjin agent thinks they should do that permanently. Because then all these things you just mentioned a few of them kansas city baltimore florida all these teams that are pretty much out out of it by june. I would get a reset in the middle of july. I really like that idea. Does it have any chance of happening. I wouldn't be surprised because the one thing that baseball knows is that they you know for a sport that plays one hundred and sixty two games every regular season the fan base that they're trying to attract track to the twenty five and under they don't have that long of attention span right. They don't wanna wait six months for the result. They <hes> for lack of a better way to put it. I think they kind of want want to have what nascar as. Which is you know the the end of the race that the two laps to decide what's going to happen and again you put that on the list of things that the players association major league baseball need to talk about on not wild about it personally but i think from a business standpoint. It makes a lot of sense. The one thing though is is that let's face it a lot of these teams that are not contending like baltimore. They're not contending in part because they're tanking right and i hope that's something else that they address when they opened the next labor negotiations as as well nancy good point okay how fun in philadelphia we'll talk to you next week. There's only fasttrack right around the corner e._s._p._n. L._a. right mason in ireland show joe michael thompson is filling in for may soon as he got him back. Monday are no no tuesday. We're off monday for labor day and he'll be back tuesday so he's gallivanting around europe someplace the he went to croatia elston. Go around your backpacking easy backpacking. He's my mom follows him on facebook and she said he said he's posting some very nice pictures. I'm not are you a facebook no yeah in their mind so i don't have any you know i he's. He's in great dino where he is. I don't worry i have no idea where he is a lot of adventures that talks about he'll go around and toni kukoc over there from croatia is he's the most famous guy who's strange basketball player from croatia serbia serbia yoga just from where yogurt is from <hes> serbia serbia and bodies from serbia used to be yugoslavia serbia and <hes> pelvic pressure vic petrovic was croatian okay yeah but i think kuku it's probably surpass him as the famous famous although fetch what might be most because he'd kinda died young so he's gonna die like a legend vo john bogdanovich now. He's not as more famous coach coaches in part of the bolts. Hey mike. I wish you were traded twice. In your career. You're from portland san antonio from san antonio into the lakers. I was reading an article n._f._l. Dot com today you know the the rams signed clay matthews this year who's had that great running turning green bay and in this n._f._l. Dot com article. Matthew says the packers made zero attempt to sign hip he just i've got a phone. Call one day from the g._m. And said you know what man we don't have any money for you. We're going to let you go free agents football for and i thought to myself is that when you find out a team doesn't want you portland traded you to san antonio. San antonio traded you to the lakers is is that motivation asian for you like as class is going to be motivated to prove that the packers screwed up or is it just business and you just treat it like a depends if he'd get traded as a young guy guy. Matthews is thirty two thirty three now. Yes <hes> so he's kind of like on his last legs so he has taken his business. He's on a super bowl. He's old old and he's like me. A thirty three days guests a chance to join championship contenders eligible trade to the liberty to okay thirty two and i was just i'm from my picture house in the best shape of my life but when you're a young guy you get hurt more often because you still just starting on your career especially. If you had a good run there and also they just trade you and you don't expensive from portland traded yeah. I was thirty thirty one at a time. I come off of a good season did not expect to get traded news. You know we didn't have we didn't have mason in the irishman type. Type radio shows talking about speculating on our every move then back there in the <hes>. What was that the early early early until late eighty s so when when you were traded back then you had no idea it was coming because it was never know speculation on twenty four hours a day on the e._s._p._n. Or those kind of find out i was walking around the street in some some report attract me down and say he might be traded to the spurs. Were you think you're while you're on the street. You didn't have a cell phone. I know i didn't have a cell phone. I was in portland yeah yeah if for some reason they found me with downtown portland and some guy came into the microphone just got traded to san blazers didn't even trade didn't even call me now. They might call my home because you know back then. We didn't have cell phones. You may see with that time. I was single. Okay made it easy to make the move into whereabout wife and kids and all that stuff but yeah i was kind of shocked i got traded did not see that coming at all yeah so i'm i'm anxious to see what clay matthews has left in the tank and i would think that if the off the bench right i think it depends on on what the other teams offenses. This is the guy that cam newton. They opened the season at carolina. You'd want a guy like klay because he can go get. The quarterback sacks fasttrack coming up next all right a business owner.

Mason and Ireland [HR 1]

"Anything to talk about around. Here what a great weekend. We got a lot to get to people as Chris mentioned off the top there. Anthony Davis dropped fifty the Lakers the best record in the NBA Mason Party a tremendous success. Fun It was really. We'll we'll talk about about that. The Rams Win and look like the old rams you don't want it yes there now team. Nobody wants to play. Everyone's dreading if they get in in. We hope we don't have to play the rams five or still alive and and then there's mythical money yeah how about this. This this is great. This is shocking. Going down to the Y.. Okay so every year at the beginning of the year right at the start of the in January we each give we each get one hundred thousand dollars and mythical money Yup and the goal of the game is just finished with more than the other two guys it is. Greg Bergman skeeve Mason and meet me Yep and we just beck all year on anything you can bet on anything for twelve months Friday Greg. How much money did you have on Friday? Two hundred and forty four thousand dollars and how much money did I have on Friday six thousand okay. So Bergman is Nile Nile eating US and he's been killing us all year. Long Mason went out on the first game Saturday morning. Home of Baylor. Yeah Right Oklahoma Loma minus the night so mason finishes with what Greg five hundred dollars okay. Bucks out of the hundred thousand Mesa has five and then because Greg was so far ahead of me I had to bring back. My history is the parlay king. Yeah I had to try a hail Mary of of a parlay. That was so ridiculous that if I hit it I catch Bergman and if I don't I finished with literally one dollars yes it's I needed I did the math. I needed six teams to and what does it pay. If I hit Greg pays to I need to look. It's like two hundred in seventy eight thousand dollars. What one thing that gets me to pass per yup and then Bergman because I credit you for this because you're a good sport you did not sit on your lead and make no oh betts? You tried to put me out by. They winning yeah winning big Bet and what lost it for you. I lost in the first one ever my I bet was I lost the Rams I lost. I lost on the raiders. I lost on Buffalo. Okay so so you finish with what I one hundred and one thousand in the black. Okay I just wanted to be in the black. I didn't care about the rest but my hail Mary. There were three games in the morning and I go three for three and I'm thinking well I'm only halfway there and the way parties working. She gotta hit them all so in the afternoon. I bet against the raiders because I think Tennessee's the hottest team in football yep. Tennessee blows out the raiders. And and I'm four for four now. I need the Rams I bet on the ramps rams I am five for Ron here on Thursday. Do you know the rams were fezzes. Best of that. I didn't even know that. So here's as it did last year when it boiled down to mason an eye on the final final weekend of the year Mason Mason Slash show Yup for the month of December. He's leaving. You're going someplace exotic and Costa Rica so mythical money ends tonight at six o'clock six no say whenever the Monday night game in there is no you. Can't you bet outside. Joni Nice try own own anyway so okay vitamin vote I vote. I don't Greg Smart Okay. So fired over that eighty yes. He can getting fired no so bottom line if the eagles and what am I giving Greg Nine and a half nine just nine straight years. I didn't check the numbers which which was my fault. But so yet ni- all right because I didn't check the number. Okay so nine is the number if the Eagles win by more than nine Yup I I complete the greatest comeback history. You're dead last all year long right. But if they don't if they tank it or if he li- rises rises from the dead. Eli Manning quarterback tonight and the giants win or even stay within nine. Greg Bergman wins and not just by a little he he would finish with one hundred and one thousand masonry finished with five hundred and I would finish with one dollars. My two choices are finished. A Hey with one dollar or be with two hundred and seventy eight thousand. Is the thing dreams biggest Monday night. Football game of the year for us. So we're keeping an eye on that so we've got a whole bunch of stuff going on the fact that I'm even still alive is shocking but greg as I told you I had total confidence unlike Mason. I never gave us. That's okay because Mason conceited last week. All the team if he didn't even if he won his bet it wouldn't matter look. I always always give up. I quit with the best of always the Jimmy V. Foundation is never give up. Never give up. The Steve Mason Foundation would be always give up. What put working? I'm just just give up. I am just way too emotion when the going gets tough. The tough go to Costa Rica. Five hundred dollars all right so. We're keeping an eye on the Monday night game so but I want to talk about well. Should we talking about the party or about ramps. Let's go. I think we should start. Lakers personally okay. So here's the thing. Anthony Davis Right now. Yep is the most complete big man in the NBA. Some people would argue for Joel embiid. Some people were actually before the game last night. Arguing for Karl Anthony towns and he just devastated towns. Yeah I mean he just I think tanks finished with fifteen points eighty fifty and he only took like twenty twenty six shots he I mean he was like unbelievable the whole night Lebron head thirty two and he was six of eight from three. Yeah Yeah I mean. They're just doing everything right. If this team has a weakness it hasn't come out yet. They're twenty one in three now. The Oh eight. Oh nine team. The team that eventually won the title the team that beat Dwight Howard in the finals in Orlando started. Twenty one in three but they lost I their twenty fifth game. Yup so they can pass. Oh eight Oh nine Wednesday night in Orlando The other two teams that did it one of what up to twenty five and three before they lost. And then the all time laker record for start is the seventy one seventy two team. That started thirty nine nine and three right. That's thirty three game winning streak and this is somewhat ironic the Milwaukee Bucks Yup are the hottest schemed fourteen in a row. Correct they play tonight against By the way lack the clippers on Friday. They're and they're destroying people. They've innate so so there's a possibility when the Lakers get to Milwaukee a week from Thursday yep on the nineteenth. There's a possibility that the bucks will be writing like a nineteen game winning streak into that game and that the Lakers and bucks will have identical records. Do you know how the Lakers thirty three game winning streak ended no in Milwaukee Wi who Kareem abdul-jabbar. You're an Oscar Robertson. Yeah that's how the streak ended. That's which by the way is the longest win streak in not just basketball but in professional sports no. NFL teams have ruined thirty. Three in a row a Major League Baseball team. Nobody's ever no no hockey team. So in the four major like college teams at Ucla. One eighty eight probably went through but professional all teams. That's the longest win streak in the history of the four major professional sports and ended in Milwaukee. So great would it be if the Lakers go in there a week from Thursday the Bucks Riding Twenty game winning streak. How kind of sneaking up on the Lakers all time record? And then I op telling you I would put this Laker team right now the the way they're playing up against anybody. I don't think anybody can hang with. But it doesn't seem like they've had any weakness at all. Well how about this. This is the most surprising stat of all away from Staples Center there eleven. Oh yeah a waste. They don't lose on the road. I mean there are a lot of teams like the clippers are thirteen in one at home. Yeah on the road. They're like five eight or something. You know roads. Winning on the road is hard. Yeah and they're eleven and Oh away from Staples Center there. Eleven in one the road because they're one road loss was when the clippers for the home team at staples. They've not lost a game outside their own building. which is an this these are potentially? Potentially I like pretender. We also sure what Winnable Games Miami on Friday is going to be hard. This Friday in Miami but Orlando Wednesday should be a win Atlanta. They've already beaten Miami and Atlanta here right well. Atlanta's awful okay. So so let's say they. They win those two. Then they get Indiana. That's Vogel going back to Indiana a week from tomorrow next Tuesday. And then the Milwaukee game Thursday the nineteenth so they could go into that Milwaukee game game with a record of twenty five and three of against a team that would have a record of twenty five eighty crazy. I this portion show show brought to you by Lyman. Healthcare changing health care one person at a time. Kind of next my rans win last night. Blow the doors off Seattle. Technically in fact Seattle didn't even score or an offensive touchdown. Eight and five were still alive. That's coming up next for you Mason Ireland. ESPN LA fifty to go in the third quarter. Listen to the coliseum crowd. Try to lift their defense on third and seven from the rams forty one they send the blitz and it's a sack donald introduces himself to Russell Wilson also again eleven and a half career sacks against the seahawks this one Knox Wilson in Seattle back into their own territory. It's it's up fourth down football before we came in with a game plan. We've been playing together as a team couple weeks. We came out there and competed. Okay bye flying around and we did adopt. There's Aaron Donald and the Rams really suffocated Russell Wilson. Last night. He could get nothing going all night long and the Rams cruise cruised to a comfortable win at the Coliseum. It was a great crowd last night. Really loud seahawks fans were very depressed. I'm imagine no older than twelve years old would not shut up the entire game. I wanted to at one point. Turn around and say to his dad. Could you make sure your kid is a better sport. He was such a bad sport. Tyre thing seahawks fan really annoying well. The last word goes to the victor okay so couple of questions about that game she kid number one. What okay so what happened to Jared Goff off that now? He's back to look at last year's Jared Goff over the past week. What change? I think they got him out of the pocket. He seems like he's moving around thinks they went went to a no huddle. He's better in the no huddle he built. He gets confidence in the no huddle and they played faster. The other thing is the offensive line has just been better better. Run walking better. Pass Protection Savelli Bobby Evans lined up for Rob Haven. Stein has made a huge difference The line has been better. That might also be an answer to my second question for the first time all year. Todd Gurley went north of twenty touches. Your yeah three rushers. and Fi- four pass receptions. Our past throws out of twenty seven touches for girly. Does this mean that they were just load. Managing the whole year makes sense. I mean right. You needed him during the three game. Losing streak you need it. Even the steelers game. You needed them navy. Now that the rams have no margin for error they're just gonNA say screw it or playing. May maybe that's what it is but he. He's looking at the last couple of weeks. He's still has yet to break one hundred yards this year but as a had a to ninety seven yard games one ninety five yard game. Last night I think he had seventy four yards but are really effective. Seventy four yards and ran for a touchdown all right so let's talk about. What the rams need if if they're gonNA make the playoffs yeah they probably need to win out probably? Yeah if a six is. They're they're a game behind Minnesota. Yeah and if they time Minnesota so do they have the tiebreakers time based on common opponents they have the tie-break. Here's the problem. The rams play at Dallas Yup at San Francisco and then Arizona at the Coliseum. Yes the Vikings play the bears and the packers both in Minnesota go L. at San Diego Home Green Bay and home to the bears. So and it's very rare. We say this around here but here it is the chargers yet go need a favor. Go chargers need a favor chargers words. I have never put an order charges. help us out with this. We will be grudgingly talk about you for at least a week if you know. We never chargers if I I will purchase some type of charger memorabilia. I will honor you. We will not mock you anymore. We will not say you should move to Mexico City or London or anywhere else we will. We will treat you with the proper room out of it. We just need one favor. It's going to be obviously feel like a road game because it's in your home so we need you to rise with. The chargers looked great yesterday. Yes I did. We need that. If there's one thing I know about the chargers they never come through what yesterday they came through no. They don't come through when you need them. They ended Tom Coughlin's coaching career. Your Yeah Yeah. It's fine the Jacksonville Jaguars. No I'm telling you that's not the most far fish oil. It's not at all chargers. Can beat the Vikings they have launched rather games with the game. Aim on the line in the fourth kirk cousins or Philip rivers kirk cousins. No I don't like silk. GimMe fillers no. I haven't had a big Phil Phil played in a ton of having first year. The worst year no win on Kirk cousins has needed did to win Greg when he had that whole big. You like that game. There was a regular season game. This is the place like play. Shirt is the playoffs star. Now she says the play for the Rams Ram skid. They have no march for Minnesota's only three point favorite in that game and only only three point time on chart as as are on charges are never going to work out. Archer goes Schwarzenegger's used to say when he was governor go charge. Yeah go by the way this is an update could have impact medical money hopes. It is pouring rain in in Philadelphia pouring rain. Big Time rain let like every time they cut away to. They're they're all wearing raincoats. There's actually rain dripping in front of the camera it is swollen along ground. The Eagles say we. Because I have so much money on line here We are wet weather team allies and wet weather the other thing I did. I played the wrong quarterback and fantasy. Yeah so I'm going into this game tonight down seven and I have Carson Wentz so weird because I play the wrong quarterback and fantasy every week your last flight. Yeah you have no chance you know what. Here's the weird thing so I won draftkings. This week. I'm GONNA drafting slang was shocked with Raj and with Max Kellerman and Bill Wolf and a bunch of people. So I one that and I'm leading the champions round second chance league with all the listeners. So I- last place Mason is is showing some type of a research turned it around. I think are around Lenny. Bark are fans of the party on Saturday. Arnold Friend Bill. Douglas made an appearance Em. They're Lenny said I know you're thinking but I don't think that's such a good strategy and like tank last year and I got saquon the Barclay and it didn't work at all. It never has taken Christian. McCaffrey told if I if I had the first pick. That's taking it's where the Mason curse comes into the light so now next exchange Christian McCaffrey is going to be. There is no such thing as the Mason was that he was at the Rim game. Unless there's a big game game. It was a playoff not a playoff. They it had to win. Wasn't there all playoff games the NFL playing games all right Mason and Ireland. It is a a big Monday. Lakers with two dominating wins over the weekend. Rams with a big win last night a couple of other things. There is baseball news baseball. Assigning news that could kind of indirectly favor the dodgers yes and will explain that coming up as well as a recap of the Mason. Jason Annual Chris a star studded affair. It's like I told you at the party. It really is like the history of the Mason in Ireland show unfolds in front of you it it really does. It really does everyone. We've ever known. Yeah it's fantastic a CJ for a long time and she's fantastic. Yeah the update person. Yup Up All that stuff coming up for you Mason Ireland. ESPN LA. Here's Anthony Davis drive into the RIM runner. Good and he's got fifty his first fifty point game aimed as a Laker time out. Minnesota Lakers one thirty three wolves. One eighteen here's A. D.. I mean Nice while started off like that and like thirty didn't scoring secondhand so now it was just doing tonight Very well rested another great big towns A lot of the To your point you know you get up for some of those games. You know who who's hungry. You know trying to get wings and you know when you start off you know pretty offering floor. Just use the ball and it kept going in most of the times and My teammates okay. Give me the ball You know they were saying we fifty so at that point you try to go through the the term so At that point it was on my mom's house. I'm still trying to play the right way but oh I would definitely ultra-aggressive so Lebron couple things. Better Anthony Davis is fifty. Point came up. He did it without the three pointer. So that's an old fashioned fifty. Yeah like back in the days when we would get fifty yeah. He was over three from three Lebron. Who has six of eight eight from three? He was great had thirteen assists last night he leads the NBA in assists averages. Eleven again. Eight of those assists were to anthony any Davis which is the second. Most Lebron had to one player in his seventeen year career. So those two are just they have have meshed together. Yeah they can in twenty games. Yeah and and they just almost impossible to be. They're going to have to test coming up in the next two weeks. We're going to find out. Just how far. They've if come the first. One is a week from Thursday Lakers at Milwaukee. Yep Second one Christmas Day yes. Miss Days Lakers Clippers Zig and we assume everyone will be there clippers. Play play tonight sitting out again. Yeah they're going to be. The test case. Clippers are going to be a test case for. Can you really just flip a switch when the playoffs start. We'll wasn't Toronto onto that. He said he sat out. Twenty two games. Toronto was good in the Games. He sat out the clippers. Have not been good in the Games that he sat out Toronto at a winning record in those those games. I'm not sure if the clippers do I I'd have to look at it. I think seven they deny missed. You know so. We'd have to look that up. But but I digress a Saturday night was the annual Mason in one Christmas Extravaganza I was only there for two hours but I thought it was a booming success. Success was fun it was fun I was worried about how many people roughly came through there. Do you think I'd say maybe a hundred and twenty one hundred. Yeah it was right around running around one. Hundred Twenty is the best. We figured it was pizza and we went through forty-five pizzas when what was excellent. You've got several different current brands like like one time. You had domino's pizza with fresh brother. John's Bergman never found the pineapple pizza by the away. And they're looking for it. There was an apple pizza which had never be. All of the pizza was good. Yup and delicious. Yeah now it's also excellent food for a party where there's a lot of drinking going on. Yeah because anytime he started feeling like I'm Kinda getting drunk. You just went to pieces pizza. Yeah Yeah and you never ran out. No we never went back there. There was more pizza pizza. Delivered every half hour so pizza just kept coming and coming in common and in the end and we went through forty five pieces and there were only three eaten pizzas. Okay that's it all right so couple of things on Friday had had a fasttrack question saying who would you be most disappointed if you show up. He's coward ever show Howard never showed up now. Does that Howard now. Does that mean how you treat right. Do you treat the Mason Christmas party like we treat the show. If you sit in band you're out. Does he get an invite next year. You know what you'll have to cross that bridge meaning. He made the party. MVP was who. I will say the party. MVP was should know via with her antlers with Iran. Yeah she looked others. Firefighter firefighter with her She was great. Everybody I mean I you know it is. It's kind of like an almost is basically the station Christmas party because uh-huh but even more so it's more of like the history of Mason's name snack on our greer even worked with like Brian Long came from San Diego. That was really cool. You Sue do Jay. Simpson was our update person for for a while. Right she is fine. I met Lindsay. Theories has been the airline pilots. She's getting married this summer. Very antion say exactly. Enzi told me that she did not expect the rams to win on Sunday night. Say Guaranteed you. They're going to win. They're always play Seattle Lindsay wrong. Lindsey also also Lindsay's in a weird spot because I think that deep down she she wants the rams to succeed. It's better for business. Yeah I know but she has a wedding to plan. Yeah yeah social after the playoffs after the play offs. Then you plan the wedding and I said is it your wedding. Yes I go okay I can see where you have divided.

WOR Show is back on Lyonel officially back every Saturday morning. We we're we're letting you behind the curtain a little here. We thought we were going to lose that. Show we when we had programming changes and And cedars-sinai Sinai Workout Dot Clapper Works is sponsoring the show and it saved it and it's back on. Every Saturday dates we can still call them for provision so we can hear. Let's be honest. We were going to do that anyway. It's a Bundt cake with. It's like a Bundt cake with toothpicks in it and then a flag-waving over the top. I thought it was very nice. It's Susan here soon it came. Ah for awhile. Michelson was great guy when great it was very fun and few the listeners came up. I Charles Freeman I lieven. Let's go back and talk to them. But that's when Lisa Yanked me out of there after my third Mason Mule Toi Cook was there a great guy checks all the time and and then I checked Nevin Evan. For a long time I did not be Mona Nev- I did not speak to Ramona. I waved we waved at each other but I never talked to motoring ever talked at me the entire time. That's weird. She was there as well. We we see all the time we never see Nevin. Yeah no we never see Nev- my friends who ski great stand up. Comic Kathy. Landman never made an excellent point to Lisa Lisa my wife yes she said he at least whenever I see you. I think about the time that I went to your house. Greg were you working with us yet when I had the big USC UCLA UCLA Moonshine Party. All right I was. I wish at that. Yeah you were at the game. You missed it. I was not at that. Everyone a friend of ours was running being a company that sells moonshine and he had a bunch of it and it is still going on no business. Well know it very well could still be going on. He no longer long runs a big drinker that I saw it in a post game celebration for the dodgers one time. Justin Turner was big moonshine drinker. So nevin comes over to the House and Lisa. My wife says to him. Can I get you some moonshine. And we have like five or six different flavors. He Goes No. But if you'll take diet coke all have that and you know how my wife feels about diet coke yes so. She lectures Nevin on liquid death on liquid. Death tells them how it's terrible for him. It's terrible for his insides it's it's you she said and she's he looks at her and he goes this coming from the woman that just offered me ninety proof in Lisa goes yeah he kinda got me there by the way I remember most of the party until the very end when it all glen I I got there I went looking for you. You're nowhere to be found. Yes so I had a feeling that there was a adults only area there was. It was not pretty data back house was where are there was. It was great because the back house is where the magic happens it. Yeah the cannabis users were and it was right next to my mom and my aunt Linda. It's not Stepdad Leo. They were catching a contact high. They were they were They were excited through the entire night. Yeah it was fun it Sam Llegado was there and I waved to him and I never got to talk to you Sam. Yeah there were a bunch of blues. Yeah Yeah it was. It was great it was great. Thanks to I've rooted came out glad it worked out yet. Consuming success coming back. We'll tell you the baseball story. There's been a big signing in baseball. which could have a trickle down effect on the dodgers? That's share that with the net. That's coming up next Mason Orland. ESPN LA yeah. You know what we really don't because whatever happens is going to happen and it's the cliche but it's the truth because whatever happens in those other games. Sure you'd like things things the workout in your favor but the only thing that really matters is what we can do and all we can do is have a great week of preparation. Try to beat the cowboys and things workout usually Kinda. I've said this before. They I have a way of working themselves out. If if that's what's supposed to happen but we're going to continue to just focus on trying to play good football. Next week that Sean mcvay talking about scoreboard watching the rams win last night to Kgo. Eight and five Minnesota is one game ahead of them in the standings The Rams do have the tiebreaker. Basically the rams for all intents purposes I need to win out BARRING MINNESOTA TRIPPING UP A couple of times so if Minnesota loses once and we're counting on you chargers yes let's say the chargers beat Minnesota this weekend go rams James Win in Dallas. My mouth doesn't even form the words in there. Oh then their lives now. Do you think that Minnesota beats both the packers and the music they lose lose to the pack lose to the book that came in Minneapolis. Lose Pack Toward the losses okay. So that moved out. We'll see now. We really need the chargers. Yeah because we need to losses to buy a little insurance for us to San Francisco game. We'll tell you this told you we were not. We were never close. Listen Now San Francisco. But here's what you forget about that game. I went back and like read up on. That came a little bit. Yup Okay the final score that game. Do you remember twenty-seven all right there was a play in that game cory. Littleton had a pick six and he just dropped correct right so that let's say Cory Littleton normally doesn't drop it scores and it's twenty to fourteen. There was a play at the end of that game where Gerald ever was widely. Yes and Jared Goff messiaen's tenure jared Goff's playing better now but here's the thing we I only had one hundred and fifty seven yards of total offense. They were so not even close aide. Didn't run up a bunch of offense. I'm telling you the game was not as big of a bodice as you think. Now what's going to be harder. Is You got to do it in San Francisco but until this year mcvay. I think that I think that's a I ram niner game. mcvay lost was wondering wondering jared goff through for forty eight yards in that game. Yeah he was terrible but do you not agree that over the last two weeks he seemed to find out Saturday. Found it You you know once they started going to the no huddle anymore. I was doing the Laker game and I only caught it in a corner. I was the pick six bad all those awful he just didn't see. I mean it was just completely awful. They're take a receiver. Close right still somewhere right. Reckon around in his brain he still has some of that. They're still they're still there. But I mean you get girly. Going makes a huge different. The offensive line played much. Better you go to the no huddle. And all the sudden jared Goff looked like the jared Goff of last year. Okay so let me. Let me pivot to this baseball story. Stephen Stephen Strasburg the world series. MVP for the Washington nationals resigned today with Washington. He's GonNa get thirty five five million per year from twenty twenty through twenty twenty six two hundred forty five million dollars so it's six years to forty five. Yeah yeah that is terrible but the GM of the nationals came out two days ago and said we probably probably can't afford Strasbourg. and Anthony Randall. By the way I wanNA mention this because Greg just said in a mire there's eighty million deferred on that deal also thirty five million dollars a year but eighty million deferred. That's why it's six years to forty five right and there's a backload on that deal. Yeah and it it He covers age thirty one to thirty seven seasons and it blows away the previous record total value for a pitcher one more time and this. There's an interesting. The eighty million dollars will be paid in the first three years after the contract. So the dodgers were never gonNA give never and also nor should okay so and it also takes them out of Garrett Cole because Garrett Cole is probably going to get more than thirty five million and he's asking for eight or nine years which is not what the dodgers he opted out of four years one hundred to give you some bearings and even if the dodgers were to do annual average salary of say forty million a year for four years four years one sixty. That's not going to get it done. Yeah here he's got a chance to go to three hundred million. That's why Anthony Rendon is the play right. Okay okay so you because I t's earlier I said well it might be good news for the dodgers. Here's why the nationals have said. They can't afford both guns of the dodgers have always been on the the shortlist for Rangoon. As a matter of fact buster only has come on the show all season saying you guys need to keep an eye on Ren dawn to the dodgers Because according to Buster Anthony Ren Don is the type of guy who would take that deal you just laid out the four year forty million dollars. He would take aac one sixty because he doesn't WANNA play baseball for the rest of his life. Yep He's not in love with the game like other guys are he just wants to go to his ranch in Texas and right IRA and kickbacks kick back and so what we're hearing is Gary Cole- is going to be a a bidding war between the angels and the Yankees Probably Probably GonNa go to the Yankees but who knows already Marino has gotten crazy before. He's gotta get crazy if he wants I if he wants a frontline starter. This is the one he's got to go crazy on this one and and another name. I've heard that the possibility the angels weather they get Garrett Cole or not is hunting review hundred years is looking for the the angels starting pitching. Era last year. Yep Dead last Otani back this year right but they were dead Ed last and so they could go after both those guys the reason review probably doesn't work for the dodgers is that he wants four years and he kinda hamstrings them in the postseason because he's home in road splits are are way different and remember you can't bring him out of the bullpen because he's got that he's got a warm up a certain way so they've probably gotten everything they can adver you if he would come back on a one year deal or a two year deal. I think the dodgers would be interesting. This is John Hayman. The Minnesota twins are in one hundred and review also jays and dodgers see. Not The angels are not mentioned by Giacaman. I heard somebody. Somebody mentioned the angels today and the other thing I heard by the way I think it's it's very likely because he's a the ultimate creature of CABOT. We talked about his pre game ritual as he gets ready and his his between start ritual. He's a creature of habit. And most likely I think is going to stay in southern in California likes to hear. That's why I think the angels are a play and I still think the dodgers can get a deal done well. Yeah we'll see the reason ringtone becomes all of a sudden the guy the dodgers focus on is if you once for years and Garrett Cole wants nine years in Ren don't only once four. There's your give your money ren don't yeah there it is right there. So that's something to keep an eye on the The dodger by the way were you is a Scott. Boris client. So he's not he's GonNa take two years just to be a good guy. Although last year he just took eighteen for one who did re took an eighteen eighteen point three million dollars now to say young season but he was coming off a really good year. Were you is not one of those. I'm going to get every free last dollar. God did you see Rondonia voice client to yes. Okay also says that According to Ken Rosenthal Scott. Boras saying that you have to give a seven year range range for random seven year range for his go to submit their bids in the seven year range. Well that I don't know if you're as you're going to get it and apparently don't wants to retire by age thirty five so it's only six years because he's twenty nine so it's all very odd ruins to retire by the age of thirty five. So do I mean by the way him being wanting to retire by thirty dollars my entire by the age of thirty five yeah to the leases stage Yup. Are you going to retire from the show when I'm thirty five when you're thirty S I feel pretty good about that. I feel like twenty inches. I think twenty twenty one. That's that's it. Yeah throughout twenty-one all Racia- yeah we're scout wins Coming up next for you Sam Monson is GonNa join us. We'll break down those rams rams performances from yesterday rams beat Seattle. Also talk about the niners. who had a thrilling win yesterday? And the Patriots struggled again on offense they lose to the Kansas City chiefs. All that coming and we'll get an update on John's big tonight negle- pro football focus. Guys are coming on San Mateo just sent. That's coming up next for you may soon Ireland E._S._p._N. L._A..

Mason and Ireland HR 2: What's Your Quarantine Song?

"Seventeen ESPN Mason Ireland. Yes thank you. Chris Morales it was a great great night for me. I couldn't be happier. I couldn't be more excited that Shaquille O'Neal absolutely destroyed and it was him. Destroy John Ireland and George Sodano behalf. Last night I won the NBA Two K. Challenge and it was fun. Everybody the jumped on twitch. Everybody that followed on twitter. Thanks a lot of shows you how desperate we are for games. Were watching Mason Ireland Sodano run simulated games online but but it was a good way to pass the night especially winning. Was the most of all a question for you. I want to get to the last but I be worried about my lakers broadcast partner. Michael Thompson have you been reading string of tweets? He's been sending out over the last so I I have. Not as he is he lost it. Yeah he no he. He is tweeting about people at the station at our station. Most of whom these are people that that the audience doesn't even know. I'll give you an example. I miss going back to the Sales Department at seven ten and yelling at Mark Kates and Palmer and Trish about life issues Tracy Murray's always on my side. I actually like her another tweet. I miss even miss being yelled at by Amanda. Our boss manage she tough. She Makes Marge. Schott look like Mary poppins or payroll break. Shucks I even miss being banned from the Mason in Ireland show by Greg Bergman Bergman. The banner I listened telling me no get out with Mason's blessing Ireland. He's nice he's literally steeds. Like tweeting in a stream of consciousness. That is awesome. That is awesome. Good well that's what it's come to tweeting about people. Nobody knows eight so would you? Would you leave Clinton Alabama Clemson? I would stay at Clemson man I want to someday play games that Dabo Sweeney Stadium. I want to play in the ACC not in the SEC. By the way I think the Clemson's got more dominant program right now than Alabama has at this moment the reigning national champions. I would absolutely stay at Clemson. I would imagine they will match anything. Alabama is willing to pay. Yeah I think when you're when you're at the top of your game though like like he is. You need new challenges every once in a while you need to. You need to mix it up. You know one reason you've taken on a lot of different things and try to determine so have I. I mean I think that if your that successful I would imagine in the. Nfl IS GONNA come at some point to if they haven't already maybe they already have. I just think that you know what there's nothing else you can do it Clemson. He's already won multiple national championships. He's built a behemoth. I think that he may he may. Why go to another behemoth? Most coaches do it. I mean Nick Sabin did it Jimmy Johnson did. It didn't work for Sabin. I mean Nick. Sabin was very successful at Michigan. State People Forget that Alabama John. You want a national championship. Lsu Lsu and then went to Alabama right no then. He went to the Miami Dolphins. Oh I forgot about the Miami Dolphins and then left good Alabama. We'll see there's there's a long ways off from that. I'm all right till Lindy explain. What what your own Corona Virus Song means. How did you come up with this well? I didn't come up with it. It was just some random person on social media. You keep seeing stuff like what's your quarantine name and it'll like you're asking what you're you're mascot in high school is plus the last thing eight or something like that. Anyway were there is going around. That's like what you're quarantine theme song and I saw a lot of people answering it so I posted it on my personal facebook and so many people answered it and I thought it was kind of fun so so you did it for us right. Yes so what I did it for all all four of us and what it is. It's the number one song in America on your twelfth birthday according to the billboard charts or whatever so for me I would. I'm the oldest. So mine would have been in. Nineteen seventy five may. Sheeran seventy-seven right. Yep I got I got it down to the exact date so start with yours John if you WANNA play John's a quarantine themes lunch. Wow I got a mega scar. Yeah Paul McCartney is my quarantine song that make sense to you. I had never even heard of this song before. Have you ever heard of wings? And I don't think I mean and the mccurdy and abandoned after the Beatles Paul McCartney and wings this was one of their hits and I never heard of it on the list. I've never heard of before. Doesn't even like like. Oh Yeah prison for not at all. I liked the song to. I'm very happy with that. As my corn answer admit I've I don't think I've ever heard that song either. No makes you heard it. This was a big. It went to number one. Obviously right. It's the number one song Lindsey Little Kid. You were ten mace when the song came out now until Mason's next what's his okay. So here's Mason. Seventy seven was the height of the disco era. I'm guessing Donna summer for you. Maybe let's see. Oh Yeah. This isn't so great Song Hall and Oates. This was in their window mates were they. Were cranking out like not an album a year but like an album. Every six months they were so huge. Yeah Hall and Oates God out to this on your twelfth birthday. I actually remember this song really well hall and Oates I may have even owned the forty five for this song. All right so this is a great okay. Well so this is how much I like hall and oats like two years ago maybe even last year L Z and beadle Z granderson. Michelle beedle went to a hall and OATES concert and I was incredibly jealous. I would go to see how we wouldn't you go see notes that they're playing at staples center no beetle L Z. If you ever go to that again I want in all right so Lindsey would be next or you. I think I would be next. No no no essentially be next is one of the best songs ever. Wow Whitney wow well as we just got trumped. Yeah I'll tell you this song I remember standing a okay. I'll I'll tell story so I was sort of in the process of Coming out and I was. Do you know the neighborhood. Hillcrest in San Diego jonkers which is a big gay neighborhood. It's sort of like West Hollywood and I. I was sort of inching my way out and I was in a store in in Hillcrest when I heard this song and I thought that is the most because I knew the originals on the Dolly Parton Song. I thought that is the most unbelievable song it absolutely blew me away and I think it probably was number one for three months. I if well just ask you guys better voice than Whitney Houston. Is there anybody not in my opinion? Not My opinion either. She's the best I mean like. I'm a big Sinatra Guy. I think Whitney's better but in terms of singing a song man. She had a voice. I mean just remember. National Anthem was national anthem. Ever Yeah Whitney. Whitney's what A. What a sad sad story. That is the way that turned out. Front you've got a good one. Jared remember to song coming out during my twelfth birthday and you know trying to Holler at all. The girls earn a six or eight at work. Not at all remember. I just I actually just wash like the documentary on her. I think it was the one who documentary. Yeah Yeah Okay because I was Gonna ask you guys if that's any good. I just got who so I've been searching for stuff and I was going to put that in. My queue is really good. It's really good. It's really sad but my wash it with my mom actually like around Christmas time and I thought it was really really good and there's a lot of things in there that I mean. I kind of grew up listening to Houston like my mom listened to or not seemed like she was always on the radio in the car and stuff like that so yeah it was really sad. I feel really bad how everything happened. The funny thing about Whitney Houston is great. A voice could not dance at all talking about somebody who took notice okay. Put like fifty dancers around her in that Absolu- and remember that was the era of Janet. Jackson who is an unbelievable dancer and Whitney Houston I WANNA dance with. Somebody was just an embarrassing dance performance but a great song a great song. Yes he kind of does the Carlton in that Song. She does Lindsay. What's your song so mine. I love this song. It's fantastic but I don't even know if you guys will know it or would you wait. Wait this is a cover. No it's not no money problems the sample Diana Ross Song. I'm coming out. I think right yes. It is but the song in order problems by notorious. B I puff daddy boy. That's some story on funds right. Yeah Yeah Right. It's probably be. Id's best our biggest song most success biggest selling song. Yeah I remember like when this came out like trying to me and my friend making like our music video the song I remember he was out here all the time that Hook. I think Diane here was that Lindsay on nine thousand nine hundred ninety seven and it was Manny Ramirez. Walkup song you were born in what year ninety eight five eighty five eighty. I remember I was. Where were you gun navy five graduated from UCLA? Yeah I was. I was a sophomore bowling green in eighty five. I graduated eighty seven God. That was a long time. God we've been doing this a long time. Yes we have. You know we've been doing this. It very quietly came and went but our sixteenth anniversary at ESPN just passed. It was it was actually my birthday in to. What would it be? Two thousand six. We switched to we got back on. Espn two thousand four. Oh yeah two thousand four so that would be sixteen years six years if you want to and we had. We had ten years before that with the eighteen when you went to New York absolutely all right so by the way if you guys WanNa ask us anything while you're listening to the show at anytime. Hashtag ask Mason and Ireland keeping an eye on that. All the time has take Mason in Ireland and we haven't taken any phone calls today. Where a now that we got rid of. Bergman Lindsay is totally cool with taking phone calls so eight seven seven seven ten. Espn eight seven seven. Seven ten three seven seven six. You can call anytime you want. And we'll try and get I sub tweeted the Michael Thompson tweet about Bergman banning him and I tweeted out I agree with Michael Thomson. Bergman is the worst Bergman tweets back. I was smart. I recorded all of our conversations. Tread lightly my friend. Michael knows. You're the one that pan to anybody that has ever worked with us. Knows that are off air. Conversations would probably be the end of US so many. I was talking to some people and they have some technology. Where like it's going to be really fun when they finally get it up and running but it would give people the ability to like here commentary on anything like if you and I are watching Tiger King. Y'All could do commentary. Tiger King and other people could hear it sure so they said Hey. Would you guys ever consider letting people here what you talk about during the breaks and I said for a very very large amount of money and a promise that we ever get sued were covered financial? Absolutely absolutely I wanted to Before we go to break I wanted to pop the series finale. The very last episode of Shit's Creek is Tuesday night. It is my funniest show right now. I raced through all the first five seasons are on. Netflix and the sixth season is on demand. Now it's on the pop channel but you can get it. It's got Dan Levy and Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara and one of the stars Jennifer Robertson. She plays Jocelyn ship and. She is on my podcast right now. The culture podcast.

Yeah S. C. H. Itt and then Shits Creek and it is a grave reviews. People love it. Yeah you should a- strong. It's very feel good show. It's really funny but it's also got a really good heart. It's a really feel good show. If you're looking for something that the whole family can watch. It's totally family friendly. It's a it's a great one to get into. I ride it out for a couple of episodes and it will definitely pay off Ireland. You have you haven't tried it have you know. But you're like the fifth person who's told me to watch it.

Exactly what I'm doing now sitting around doing nothing. I got a lot done today though I did. Steve Mason Sleep in slept much longer than I thought. I had a good good sleep in today. Really good sleeping and I'm having great luck with handy normally but I'm having great luck with home projects. I have realists like four things that I would have said before this. I was incapable of fixing but the thing is two things I've learned number one when you have nothing but time your way more patient you know you figure oh I can do this in five minutes but if it takes you half an hour you're okay with it because you don't have anything else going on right number two anything that pops up anything that you have to do around. Your House is on the Internet all yet I. My garage door was jamming so the door wouldn't close. Yup and I realized what happened was. Is that the screws in the door. Jamb in the little thing that seals the door had come loose and I tried to screw him back in and they had no threads the threat had come out so I typed in lost threads on door. And there's a video of a guy showing me this crazy thing. We have about how you stick toothpicks in and use an electric screwdriver and everything gets repaired and in two minutes three minutes later the doors fixed so. I'm doing lot crap like that. Yeah I'm My Spanish classes are going. Good it's starting to come and really easy to roll see. This is SITA. Obama Espen Yokoun L. A. K. Pero Cuando. Booy may call CE- NECES- Sito of Lara Spaniel non-editorial see see Spangler Kitto Kitto. Who kittle Jeremy Monday? I want you want okay. Yeah Yeah So. I'm learning Spanish. I'm going to come out of this fluent in Spanish if it kills me very on religiously every single day and my goal is to someday make an appearance with high may on a dodgers game or you could just do it dare call who can do a great hymie. Hariri does a great may Harine. Yes he does yes he does somebody just Jason tied just astronaut Gas Mason Ireland. If you guys could pick your own song to express your personality. Basically he's offering a chance to pick our own walk-ups on what would you pick? I would pick imagine dragons radioactive. I would pick peace frog by the doors. That would be your walkup song. Beaver the hook. And that's all. Yeah that's such a soft song isn't it? It's no mellow no no. It's about people getting killed blood in the streets here in Chicago. You thought that was a soft song about the. I thought it was no What's the name of IT PEACE FROG? I thought it was. I thought it was peace train. Peace train is cats as Cat Stevens. I was like. That's the gentlest walkup song. Ever no no peace frog is about riots and you Jim Morrison went to Ucla and the doors are ucla band. And I would go with them. I let's get a couple of phone calls. Let's go to Maurici. Oh from van. Is Maureen keough urine seventeen? Espn makes them nine. Orig- going good we're hanging expect. I'm doing pretty good. You know I'm doing class online and everything that whole thing. It's pretty weird since I'm a music major but at the same time it's you know going with the flow. How how old are you Maria sue? I'm twenty four years old actually birthday on the twenty fifth on March. Happy Birthday. Happy Birthday Man. So you're doing online classes for college. Yeah I go to see certain music major. But we're doing our Mike groff forced to do it. So what? What instrument do you play? I'm base there. No Nice Nice cool. Yeah so what's up. What's going on in my my question for you guys. If you had a chance to star in a show like breaking bad better costs are occurred. What would you do like embassy? Would you start? I would honestly become an episode of the office being extra. It'll be cool so we can be. If it can be a show from past or present I would go to the West Wing. May as well go to the Sopranos. I'd go to one of those two. If I could be a show from the past or the present I would be a dramatic. Even though I'm Goo fall it would be a dramatic show. I got a good one for you. Okay you should You should be the guy who gets killed in the early part of breaking bad that they dissolve his body in acid member. That's good yeah and better yet. No No. That's that's from better. Call Saul is a prequel to breaking bad but breaking breaking bad early first-year spoiler alert. The show came out fifteen years ago. Don't don't ask me Jesse. Pink men kills a guy by putting them in the bath. He comes up this idea. I'm going to put them in the bathtub. Just poor so come in acid. And he'll dissolve but he doesn't think it through because it dissolves the body the TUB and goes right through the floor. Yup exactly everything that could be you mace. Here's here's what I'm going to answer since better call. Saul is still in production. And they're working. They're going to be working on season six. And since I've got a loose friendship with Tom Shaw who's one of the executive producers and the writers And we've had Peter Gould on the show. We've never had bits Gilligan. On the show I will say I would like to be an episode. Six of better call Saul. Call me guys. I'm ready there you go. Hey Marie. Ceo HANG IN THERE. Stay safe okay. Okay so let's take that call on line six inch Ian from Long Beach wants to talk about an NBA two k. Game last night which was our tournament which was won by Mason and featured a dominating performance by Shaquille O'Neal in what's going on man how you holding up. I'm doing great guys so I just wanted to say that I'm not really a big video game guy either a week. I watched the the thing on twitter. Because of you guys and I was just forward by the only thing that I would say would've made it better is if you two were doing the play by play. That's the thing I missed. Yeah you know. They use washing watching laker games. You GotTa have the chicks I view or the Ireland view yet and I was I was in. We're working on that. We're working on that. If we do this again a year from now we'll probably have that figured out or or one on baseball I would love to do the play by play on. Mlb The show. I would talk. I would totally do that in Ireland. Do Color I would do the play by play. I feel really comfortable doing baseball. Play by play yeah. Johnson talked about that earlier. That great if you guys did all time dodgers the would be valid. Be Great as well. So if you could make that happen we're denies commentating and Sodano doing play by our best sidelines or whatever. Yup 'cause you know last night he would just think complaining he was. He was very I thought he was very good natured today on the show like he didn't do a lot of complaining on the show.

Mark Hey holding up the guys doing fine. How about you guys. We're doing best. We can hope. Hopefully everybody say say out there. A big Fan of yours. I only primarily. I'm a long time. Laker season ticket holder so bittersweet here because I thought the Lakers were going to win the championship so might ask what went to Alaska Clifford game in the opponents house which is basically a home game for us because Laker nation always takes over liquid games as always I wanted to get your thoughts Today the news is out. Obviously Kobe is going to get into the hall of fame with Cagey and Dunkin. Who Do you think is if you guys up to you? Ideal to introduce dot Kobe into the hall of fame. Former coach player. It could be a former each if barring we probably going to be a family member. But that's or Jelly bean his father. So who do you think would be the perfect guy to enter his? Give his ceremony to the hall of fame on tough questions now. There's there's a question here that you may know. I might have to look it up. There used to be a rule that you're presenter had to be someone who has already in the hall of fame. Do you know if that rule still exists. I am not that might be but I'm not positive on that. Yeah I I can. Then you can even include that if you wanted to. If that's the case if you if you go with that rule if that rule still exists and maybe there would be a different rule for someone who has passed away the person who I would only root for this. If she was completely comfortable doing it and wanted to do it would be no Talia. His oldest dove. Wow Nessa was so great at his memorial and we heard from a lot of other Great Hall of Famers at the memorial we heard from Jordan. We heard from shack. We heard from the the best female players in the world who out who were there to kind of shed. Some light on G I if the rule still exists mark. It should be whoever Vanessa once. Vanessa should make this early June for her and her family but the name that pops into my head who is the guy who moved heaven and earth to get him would be Jerry West. Yeah the logo. Because he had such he had such respect for Koby and they had like a father son relationship. Kobe always spoke so highly of Jerry. Never really had any falling out like did with Phil or Sacher Journal. Many of the other teammates with Jerry. It was also he was really upset and bitter about the way that things are breaking off with them when they ended up letting him go and Jerry Like everywhere else. I think you can make the argument. He he's had the best player exotic a career in all of professional sports. When you look what are you as a player? Obviously who's willing to all time greats and then go into Memphis building that into a an excellent contending team and obviously what he did with the warriors filling them into a dynasty. So that's ideal. That's the first thing that came to my mind. What are you know I think Jerry West is the right guy? Gary West engineered that trade and really saw Kobe. I WANNA say discovered Kobe but he plucked Kobe out of that draft of that entire draft field and decided that is the guy I mean. He really did know Kobe. Bryant was great before anybody else knew Kobe. Bryant was great. And here's here's a great a great sidelight to that story. Jerry told me once that if you remember the order in which things went down he had to make room. He had to trade some players soon order to fit in under the cap and he didn't have shack yet. Shaq had not sit his agent. Leonard Armato had two offers on the table. One from the Lakers and one from the Orlando Magic. Which was the team shack was on at the time and the magic offer was worth more money. So the Lakers were actually financially a little bit less than Orlando. But of course offered better off the court opportunities but Jerry had to move some things around because the draft was coming up and he really wanted to get Kobe so he was. He was kind of spinning plates in two different parts of the room. And so what Charlotte wanted for the fourteenth pick or the thirteenth pick. Whichever coby was was widely coup was the Lakers starting center at the time so there was a scenario. That could have played out. Where the Lakers would have traded. Vlade Day for Kobe and then shack says no and they would have been left with no south But Jerry West said he had a couple of sleepless nights and body at the time was a really good player. And so Jerry said I'm just GonNa roll the dice and do it and was able to get both he got he got checked. Assign anti-trade for Koby believable. That was getting left point guys. I know you only phone call to take Just After the last six years you know so to bummer going to Laker Games. But you know to have the them have the Comeback Lebron play like ad just the whole teams. That Union Frank Vogel of coaching so fly a seemingly. Well I just hope everybody out there. You know just falls a rules so we can get back to normal seat up and hopefully we as Laker fans can get back to a staple center or even watched them win a title because I would hate to see this. Mvp type season for Lebron out away. So does everybody come on? Let's get it to go in the sooner. Everybody gets in line. The sooner we get back to the Lakers play guys appreciate it. Thanks man appreciate it. Appreciate a lot man the NBA Two K. Tournament has started. And what they're doing is they're airing game audio in the background and you can also hear both the guys that are playing. So that's awesome. Kevin Durant is playing against Derek Jones. Durant has the clippers. Jones has the bucks so I have a feeling what they decided to do. Was take take somebody. That's not your team because of the heat and a place for the nets so right now durant leads Jones. Thirteen to eleven in the first quarter. But it's up and running on. Espn excellent hey. I wanted to mention something if you are first of all following up what the last caller said I hope by now. We're all following the rules. Right in that by the way includes if you go out to a store. Whatever you now. They're saying wear a mask and make them ask if you have to make one but the sooner everybody follows the rules. The sooner we're GONNA get back to life and get back to sports and a lot of people are now listening to the stream from all around the world. I heard from somebody on twitter from Italy. Where the crisis has been really bad and he says listening every day. A lot of people are listening on their smart speakers now. So all you have to do is say Hey Alexa play mason and Ireland or play seventeen. Espn and you're smart. Speaker will play the show and as George said earlier those first couple of days when we were on the air and we're all broadcasting from our houses. I had a feeling most people were watching. Cnn or Fox News Channel or listening to Knx or something like that because it was all breaking news. Now that we've sort of settled into this and we've got a few we we know generally what's going on and it can be really really depressing. That more people are coming here. Listen to the show hanging out as as we kind of do what we're doing and we're going to try doing some different stuff next week on Monday. Chris Catan who is a Saturday night? Live alum is going to come on. He's also a big ramps fan. I've seen him a few rams games so really funny guy. We're going to bring him on and we'll go into sort of what. It's like behind the scenes of Saturday. Night live which is fascinating and then also if you are a Sopranos Fan Michael imperiously and Steve. Sherpa will join us from the cast of the Sopranos. They've started a new podcast. So we'll talk a little bit about the Sopranos which is one of the legendary shows of all time so we're going to start doing some different stuff. We'll keep you updated on everything that happens. All the potential plans to bring sports back. But we're also going to bring you just flat out entertainment out of the box starting next week so or I should say continuing next week. All right more your phone calls coming up top of the hour.

I understand that the second earthern go ahead okay. So one time. I'm at a Laker game and I was with a friend of mine. Who's an actor and he came on your show? I think one of my show cavendish Moscow. Okay on the show right so so Casey says come to a Laker game. Where we're going. We're going to Jeanie Buss like yeah. How do you say no to that? So Casey Casey and his sister are talking to Jeannie entire game. I got nobody to talk to you in front of me is still Sherman. I jumped down to see what a nice I spend the second half talking to bill. Sharman watching Bill Sharman. This was when he was a Carl Malone Gary Payton team okay and even Shaq and Kobe and I and I and I said coach I gotta ask you okay said I said your team okay. Versus this present team or versus last year's team not not included Malone and Peyton and he goes. Well I'll tell you. He says he goes Let's take a position by position in a seven game series. So I WANNA hear it. So he says That that in it head to head he would take shack over wilt because he said check had the best foot work of any ever seen this life right then then he and he goes around. He says I are already goes well. Gail versus Derek. I give it to gail. I said Yeah Okay me too. Everybody would and then he goes. I said Kobe Kobe versus Jerry and he goes. I don't know about that. One was so she was so gracious right but then but then he says but in a seven game series well known because he has to be neutral but but if as remember we didn't have a three point line back in those days and it was like I got you coach John Steve. Thank you for being out here my afternoon. Walk if you guys thank you so much. Be Part of it. Great talking to you. Thanks thanks so you probably don't remember this but Casey Moscow was in one of our favorite shows. He was one of the detectives on damages right so damages. By the way. If you're looking at you like legal shows like I do and you haven't seen it. It's probably twenty years old now. It's Red Talon. Close and roads burn are spectacular in this show. You know the crazy thing about Rose Byrne is she so damn funny like in Neighbors and in bridesmaids in you would have never guessed that from watching her in damages. She is such a great dramatic actress but happens to be so frigging funny. Yeah and And rose besides being funny. It looks great in everything. I mean everything she does. She looks great and good for her. Let's let's squeak in James from Tura on Line Five. Hey James you're on. Espn for taking my call. Man wanted to thank you. Guys for for people sane. During this time and last night was awesome. I love watching the LACI guys teams. Go Up Mesa. I don't know how you how you pulled one back. Four letters shack dominated. I just wanted to say I was fun. Seeing all the old time players wearing like the long shorts and the some of their mannerisms kind of acting more like we should day players and stuff. Let's give a kick out of cream. Kinda run it up and down the court like a player nowadays. It's a freeze. It's it's really crazy. How realistic it feels. I mean it feels you know. You're watching a computer game but really it does a great job of of making it look like it's real basketball. Yeah for sure that it was definitely definitely helped give a little entertainment value and I just appreciate all you guys who put together and yeah so the last thing. I don't know I think it was in the second game between you and John is a funny moment when when Michael Thompson. Just dribble the ball out of bounds. Yeah I texted Mason and I said I think that game started at around seven thirty and I sent a text to Mason. I said I think Michael thinks the game starts at eight o'clock James. Thank you for listening all in that. Let'S GO TO STEVE FROM SAN JOSE Steve. You're on seven ten. Espn how're you holding? Up Steve. Fine. How're you doing your boys? Everything's good man. Yeah so I've been listening to you a little more than ten years and I promise. There is no human. That's heard more Mason in Ireland shows in the past decade and includes you guys because everytime Rica or Nicaragua every time Ireland. You were traveling with the Lakers. I was still listening. But you gotta take last week. That was so bad. It's been eating away at my brain. Allow okay good. Yeah you said they should pump in crowd noise if they come back to the arenas and help to play with no fans you understand. What a huge opportunity that they would have to not have fans in the arena. We could finally get to hear them talk trash to each other. Are They GonNa take advantage of that? It's an opportunity. That's a really good point man. That's a really good point. You're right away here. The trash talk. You know what Steve. Now that I hear you suggest that. I think that they should absolutely start your way they should. They should start with just sound as they call it in the business natural sound will see if we can pick up any of that and if we can then forget the cries and if it's too weird after a couple of after a week maybe then you add credits but you're right. We should at least try it first to see no. It's a really good point. That's a really good idea man. How do you follow rate listening to so much Mason and Ireland? How even survive that? Oh Man I'm just increase your habit weird how many specials I've had to sit through. Just God I feel the difference between Brian Kennedy by their voice and that the burden that no man should have to carry. I'm telling you right. You're also one of maybe ten people on Earth that can do that including their respective wives. So good for you. Yeah NO PROBLEM GUYS. All right thanks man. You want to squeeze a couple more near you. Well Yeah let's let's get Rachel Realto. Okay Real Hey Rachel. You're on seven ten. Espn high. Rachel Guy Are you. Everything is all Ryan.

Guys live every day and like especially hearing about Myrna China's see about adopting a dog. I mean he doesn't go to could now and if she can adopt someone. It's a really good point Rachel soon as I get the green light to go out. You know we're supposed to shelter at home for for a little while longer but as soon as I get the green light to go out. I'm GonNa make it happen. We'll get her one. My brother is actually GonNa Foster Dog. My brother Travis's getting dog this weekend named biscuit. He's a six year old terrier and he's GonNa foster him right now so he's really excited about that. He's never had a dog. But it's a good time if you go to your local humane society or your local animal shelter. It's a good time to foster a dog and have a little company during this this crazy time absolutely. I have my dog to that. He's anxiously waiting for us to go for a walk. 'cause they just finished on. I wanted to wait till I got a hold of you. Guys recall sharing the love dog.

She's like one of the only people like traveling as much as you do. Yeah she shut down like everybody else. There's no traveling right now. Lindsey you're you're talking about trying to do the show from Cleveland Right. Well I was thinking about it but literally like five minutes ago.

I ladies and gentlemen when you think afternoon drive you think mason in ireland. What do you think of that one. Go back to the drawing board. You don't like that when you think afternoon drive you think mason in ireland. I still like the first one better or not that is hacky. Yeah yeah gravelly voice really sells hacky saving this parlay this big money money. You know what i what conclusion i came to yesterday was really smart to pay quarterback jared goff. I think it's really dumb to pay a running running back with the cowboys paid zeke elliott or with the rams stay tied girling todd gurley well. Here's the problem. He elliot is by far the best running back in the n._f._l. I mean he s in so if he sits out your chances of winning the super bowl are not the girl was until he has knee kamara. Maybe there's a there's a handful of guys christian mccaffrey mike but i'm with you. If here's the thing if the running back can catch out of the backfield if he's a dual threat you can think about paying them but it's a lot of guaranteed knives spanner. The career span is just not the same and what's interesting is so elliott's led the n._f._l. In rushing to out of the last three years with with demarco murray they just ran marie into the ground and then when his contract was up. They just let him walk over there. Obviously the thing that surprised me about the cheap deal and if you didn't hear about it it was today six years ninety million is he going to be in the league and six years. She million guaranteed in six years. Is he going to be in the league. Most these guys by the time they turn through through his age thirty one season girlies deal so zeke sixers ninety. That's through his age thirty-one season. He gets fifty million guaranteed girly four years fifty seven five. That's through his age twenty nine season forty five million guaranteed levian bell only got twenty seven million into guaranteed so he got the least guaranteed of the three big running back contracts but you know if you heard this you know i think it's been sorta joked about this idea that there should be a running backs union within the n._f._l. P._a. but you could almost make a case that there should be while here's what i would argue for if i was is the head of the players union because of this turn and this is what you're talking about that running backs are being run into the ground in the rookie. He deals wreck. I think there should be a running back exception the c._b._i. In other words you can pay running backs after the first or second year the you don't don't have to make them wait for years to get paid. I don't know if the owners would go for why do it. Why if you don't have to just think about logically. I don't want to pay a running back after two years. What would you pay elliott after he led the n._f._l. In rushing as a rookie and the only reason lead the n._f._l. Second year was because he was suspended. Zeke really had no options. The cowboys in this particular case blinked but if i'm if i'm drafting a running back i know that i've got him for his rookie rookie deal and to franchise years well by the time he gets through with his rookie deal franchise years. I don't need them anymore. Moved onto the next guy. That's what they did with tomorrow right right so so if your player if you're if you're ahead of the players union you need to address that that these you know that's a terrible way to treat your union members. The these guys are coming into the league twenty one and and basically being kicked out at twenty-five you've got to you've got to address that and say hey look owners we of an issue here running backs up become the battering rams of the n._f._l. They get hit more than anybody there. I can give you a long list of people and especially if girly and you got nick chubb in cleveland and you've got a who's the guy from <hes> new england. That has the bad me sony michelle right yeah so all three of these guys may may not see thirty. You need to say to the cba. Hey let's make a running back exception. Let's i know normally with rookies. We don't let them get paid until after their our fourth year with running backs. Let's change it to one or maybe two just to give these guys a fighting chance. It'd be the same incentive for them to be paid. If i'm an owner why do i i want to screw up my just just to give him the money early under no because you don't have to. You don't have to maxim but i'm just saying give them a vehicle. Give the the players vehicle to get paid and you can cap it. You can say you can extend running backs after two years but then cabinet for this deal zeke got <hes> today you would you like an intermediate deal. You'd allow right now zepa what i don't understand the insanity leading because he led the n._f._l. In rushing and he's twenty two right but but again he's under contract you now because it because he right now i've seen the union should ask for this right now. The players have no other option. He has to sign a four-year deal because that's the rule i'm seeing if you're the union you should say as they you know they want stuff run a young signed and a two year deal or allowed to go back to the trough after two years just running just running just running backs now. Is that equitable. It's it's it's better than what they have now because think about it but i'm a wide receiver unlike you don't get him. I wanna go back to the trump. Do atari montgomery did and learn how to be running back. You're not getting hit. Running michigan hit mourn born anybody running backs guys who are getting grabbed. You just carve out an exception and say if i was the union i would ask for a rookie running back. Deal is only only two years long. Well you know the the most of the players think there's a strike coming. Yes okay so after this season. They're telling their members stock up now a couple of things that can avoid the strike if they'd be willing to go to eighteen games which i don't think they're gonna do. I don't think the players want it if they eliminate the preseason and i think if they eliminate the preseason the players are gonna ask for extra roster spots rather than forty five man roster. Let's activate fifty three get rid of the taxes go. I let us let this page fifty three guys. The owners may say okay. Give us another playoff game because that's you know that was my solution a month ago that if you give if you add another wildcard wildcard round that the networks pay whatever you want for that yup and the owners can say and we'll give you a running back exception to avoid a strike because there's a strike coming if both besides don't give a little and so that would the union can go back to their members and say okay. Here's what we got. We got your more money. We got rid of the preseason. We staved off eighteen eighteen games and for you running backs. We got running back exception so you guys don't all die then when i say diet use that as a career your career doesn't die when you're in your twenties right gives chance so. I don't know if they'll do it but that's what i would ask for yeah. It's an interesting idea. I'm just not sure if i'm left tackle if i look if you live tackles are i think pay on average more than renting direct. They are so if i'm a left tackle and i know there's only so much of the pie. Why do i want when a car bomb more for running backs because you might go to the super bowl and that's how you get paid. You paid playoff money and it's become such a quarterback lead to to look what these quarterbacks are making. You know we were talking about elliott today and jared goff getting one hundred ten million guaranteed. What's mahomes gonna get guaranteed. If he has a number like pierre he's he's going to get two hundred million and i'm guessing one hundred and fifty of it guaranteed he would be the next see the next young up to get done today or tomorrow deck decks in the same boat as jared goff but they don't have to pay him they can they can make them wait right but i think that gets signed. Probably this week and mahomes could sign at the end of the season is gonna tear off or carson wentz. I don't think it will get as much as they did. I i i think he'll get thirty. Those guys got more like thirty two but you went back. Does he wins his winning. Percentage is really high and what are you gonna do. If you're the cowboys i i didn't even know who the backup quarterback twenty three touchdown passes. Do you even know the back of the cowboys is doing. That's true of a lot of teams. I don't know we we we have blake bortles. He's gonna do no i do know are my favorite teams quarterback backup quarterback yeah i mean he's a good player like i don't know who won glenn peterman glennon glennon one peterman still in the roster but he's hurt okay and they picked up a fourth quarterback. May i picked up to sean kaiser by by the way let's say you know how hard knocks ended last night. Let's see it lasts okay. Let's talk about it coming okay because there was some interesting things that happened and we didn't hear from coach gruden today. Nope not today today tomorrow tomorrow. We'll hear from coach nor could he was excellent last week very very what i heard. I heard his fantastic. I it's a fact refinancing dancing.

L._a. I if it's afternoon drive it's mesa ireland for for roy total two days now <hes> that's a dumb one too. I thought that was pretty solid. Did you want any thought him you need. These slogans organ that i believe now up hard knocks ended last night. Yeah i didn't get see i'm back to thinking that the raiders have no idea what they're doing okay right so oh 'antonio brown is obviously a very big part of hard knocks at last ribes in a hot air balloon. He screwed up his feet and cryotherapy cryotherapy didn't like his helmet micmac came out in the middle of it and said easy their injuries out yup so it seemed like the last two weeks they had finally resolved things. I think he's going to be in uniform and he's gonna play on monday night. So yesterday. Apparently may accent 'antonio brown a ladder ladder and in the letter he points out to him that he's being fined fifty four thousand dollars for missing all these mandatory right sure okay now. It's just a letter he does. I think they have to do that if they're gonna find him then they mean but why what are you doing. Why isn't the most important thing at this point stability. You'd think the cowboys are going to send ezekiel elliott that letter remiss miss more stuff than being tonio brown. I think antonio brown yeah i mean the guy is teetering on the edge as it is. Would you find awesome. Yeah i think i probably would would you find zeke for missile. I don't know the details. Of what zeke will you get fined. If you don't show up all right neither one of those guys showed up for some mandatory stuff yeah. I don't know if zeke is going to be fine is he. Well they're in the same boat if you find internal ran for missing mandatory practice appearances zeke mr mall too but if but eventually the cowboys tone to it but it was joe blow raider yeah he would be fine correct correct so i don't know how you don't find antonio brennan money in the tonio brown's scheme of things right but antonio brand senate out today on instagram and he said look everybody's gotta pay this year. They're messing with me. Blah blah blah. Come on man it if it wasn't this would be something else but let me tell you something about split. Here's the dirty little really good year. He's not worth this much trouble right. What trouble the entire game yeah all of this drama the entire trained in drama not catch the ball stretch to feel not worth the scored touchdown then you'll be worth it now so when they decided they're gonna find antonio brown. I'm like come on man and then like like most. Here's his instagram post when your own team want to hate but there's no stopping me now. Devil is a lie. Everyone got to pay this year so we clear yeah. I'm with let me repeat in yeah. I'm with antonio brown. I'm trying to figure out what he's saying when your own team want to hate but there's no oh stopping me now. Devil is ally period. Everyone got to pay this year so we clear all right. Here's a little more on this specific thing. Amy trask who worked for the raiders for for al davis for like thirty years tweeted today one note about that letter. The raiders sent antonio brown quite often teams. Do not seek to collect the fines. The letters are sent simply to reserve rights. I don't know the teams intent in this instance so maybe they're just doing it. You know maybe it was a legal thing right and then charles woodson responded to amy's tweet and wrote. I never liked her agreed with any fine letter sure i got from the team but probably deserve them. All this too. Shall pass can't wait for kickoff. I hope they don't find him. I hope this was just some. I'm loyal doing his or her. Josh mary because i don't think they're gonna find ezekiel. Elliott and i would not finding tonio brown and so another thing. That's interesting about devils. Ally lie man devil is ally. I agree now. Another thing that's interesting is that a lot of the hard knocks background stories. Yes we're about this wide receiver named keelan dos yes one who's from alameda elevator right yeah and was he had kind of cooper cup background avis caught like a million passes on a lower <hes> and then and brent musburger said this is the best you know brent calling the games on raiders radio yeah he said this is the best drafted receiver i've ever seen and he really looked like like he had was. The was the cool story so gruden make it know what on saturday gruden just cut him and then so they were going to invite him back to be on the practice squad yup and he said screw you. I'm going to jacksonville because the jags put him on their practice squad and said you got a better chance to play here so invested all this time i am in keelan dos in six weeks of hard knocks and they just cut them well. I mean just because you follow a storyline on hard. Knocks doesn't mean that guy's gonna make make the team you know. They're just creating a storyline. It's like those stupid. Reality shows you watch. It's like wait a minute. They're not real. It's like no one did not and i can her heartbroken when she got divorced after being married for a month the ones where the ladies get the apples at the end and all that business that you watch wait a minute the real well housewives are less than real. They're just following storylines found out today. I've got followed by the way i said. I said to one while we're on vacation. He's a real housewives fan. God bless one. He also watches vanderbilt and that's even vendor puppets that king of reality and i said it's like shannon's tattoo. It's all happened but in and he said how do you even know that and i said because that's from john ireland no idea idea no. She has on her forearm. He has a tattoo that says it's all happening. I dared lisa ireland to get that tattoo. Oh come on. I said even if it's a temporary temporary tattoo you should get it from my birthday temporary tattoo. She refused not even a temporary tag. I thought it was unreasonable. Exactly he's a fancy tennis player yeah now so i i i'm going to challenge. She's at the u._s. Open i know so i'm going to challenge to do a temporary tattoo and leave it on for at least a week of it's all happening. I don't think she'll do it cause. She's disgusted by that show but i in in these particular circumstances. I'm one. I watch him why she like could take 'em reliever yeah. I can leave <hes> yeah. You're making huge mistake but i was able to pull off at reference which was very impressive. So do you remember that they there. There was a guy one of our listeners who was an animator that used to mason ireland cards. Caesar's great guy named kevin smith follow me on twitter today kevin and sent out a tweet. I've got a follow up with him but he sent out a tweet that said hey me and the crew of putting a lot of work on this hope you enjoy it.

L._a. So i'm going to be at the coliseum saturday tonight to watch the beginning of the keyed in slovak era is in the beginning of the given slovenia's era the second half last saturday. We one right right. I'm gonna win so it's the continuation even slow this is the official coronation can start saturday night at seven thirty at the coliseum. Now remember seventy-seven dave another nike. This week came seven thirty yeah. The stanford game is a night game <hes> you would think but it's seven thirty starts in a row. That's kinda weird. <hes> so here's the deal. I try to do this on a pretty regular basis basis <hes> but if you've got a tailgate party outside the coliseum on saturday. I'm going to stop by at least one tailgate party so if you've got a tailgate party rock and at the coliseum on saturday for the beginning of the keyed in slovo sierra i will stop by all you gotta do who is d._a._m. Me you can follow me at venice mace and then d._m. Me with the tailgate party details and i will show up. I will eat some some of your food and drink some of your drink. That's very big of you to eat their food and now we had an interesting tweet from someone. This hurricane dorian is petering out a little bit but it's scheduled to hit the carolinas this weekend on north and south carolina along the the east coast in the rams play in north carolina on sunday ten a._m. Our time so we had greg reach out to who lindsey theory who covers the rams for us and does the rams report and ask if there was any concerns about the hurricane what she say greg. She says she hasn't asked anything at the podium but talk to tune exact who said there's no concern as of now we'll charlotte is not on the coast so it's it's right inland and i so i think but but whether certainly could be a factor could be winds and rain and all that stuff which i think would help the panthers because the rams shine mcveigh's oh aerial in his attack. Yes the rams gotta win a game where they're putting the ball in the ground then then you know malcolm brown and although you know cheryl henderson are going to have to step out the rams running game or so much of the rams offense is predicated on play action. I mean they need to generate. That's the one thing about todd gurley early and how effective he is and how valuable he is. How good malcolm brown isn't instead. What darrell henderson can do <hes> so much of the rams. Passing game is predicated on success in play action so they've got to be able to run the ball and by the way carolina is now running a hybrid defense. They're running a three four sometimes running a four three <hes> nobody seeing this thing yet. They're going to dust it off on sat on sunday so we don't know exactly what that's going to looks like two young offensive lineman now for the rams joe note boom and brian allen brian allen under center replacing john sullivan questions about the offensive line. I mean there's a lot to look at in this game <hes> but you're right. It would definitely affect things if there were a rain showers etc. I'm trying to think of you've you've been to every rams home game since they moved here since they moved here. Can you remember them home or road playing game in the rain. I remember the snow okay. I was at the snow game in denver yeah so that was a little slop. They've you know they've obviously played a game in seattle every year. I'm guessing reigned at some point. I want to say city played a game at jacksonville. That may have been away. We got it for year one but that was fisher writer one fisher the miami dolphins game. We watched the game just so when they blew in the last three minutes. I still have a picture of us just soaking wet and depressed way. That was a terrible terrible arable game but yeah no it'll be it'll be interesting to see earlier mentioned what heads no more weakens without football for the rest of twenty nine thousand nine right here. It's apple game on man. It's all happening is all half is all happening all right so i mentioned earlier that they're having all all these political things go on in parliament in britain breath. I don't know from breakfast brexit or whatever anything of this nature is yeah early so i don't want to go into detail in it but i just like the way they behave in parliament so i said there's a guy that yells oughta oughta. Here's a little bit of that guy older. This is real yeah. No wow from a movie that is that is officially him off. Uh oh <hes> we gotta steal that reason it all the way the knicks time. One of us is arguing with the other one. The third guy should issue <music>. That's how they do business in parliament that is excellent the order guy. I love that. I love that <hes> <hes> yeah. It's it's their parliament. You just get up and yell at each other which is not unlike i take. I imagine molly just yelled oughta. You oughta sometimes when they get out of control. I wish pita was still working on that show. She'd do it do it the well she never worked on that show was on get up. Who could we get to yell order on an e._s._p._n. E._s._p._n. Show would momodou it on the jump. She fills in on the jump. Sometimes momoa probably yell and steven jackson get in an argument has to come during a heated discussion or whenever like earlier today when everybody was yelling at greg because he wasn't betting right you were betting carl as and i was i just i just at that point. I was georgia. Do it on the jump or you could do it. During george rules in the joke also keeps coming in today for coming in today for purgatory. We'll play it for him. We'll get them to purgatory exactly. I that's track neck coming up next for is fast track. I generally am not a dressed up guy. That's to say the least but i do have five really cool custom-made indochino suits and there's no excuse now to where a suit that doesn't fit you're right when you can get a custom suit at such a great price <hes> and this is not your typical retail menswear place indochino indochino not no cell suits and shirts and blazers outerwear and more and every piece is made to your exact measurements for a great fit.

"All right mason and ireland show michael thompsons information. We welcome to the program allen sleeve with a host of lakers talk on e._s._p._n. As a twitter account giving him a chance to apologize all right and in his twitter handle is at lakers talk e._s._p._n. All one word at lakers talk e._s._p._n. And this tweet which he sent out sixteen hours ago what caught my attention should i was sitting the push sin. He writes alan wright's greatest lakers center of all time who got question mark. I'm going shack. He hates me. Already loved loved michael and i love you heard michael. Singing checks praise allan. This is of the many things you've said over the years k the dumbest thing you've ever seen. He's just another greatest liquor point guard magic or nick van exel how because all right because that's a great comparison shack ahead of who a man who could be the greatest basketball player who ever lived kareem abdul-jabbar barr. I give you a chance to explain yourself. Go ahead. We talked about this argument of if kareem is one of those players that probably got the least amount amount of exposure as possible. Somebody who's thirty six years old and that's not to say. I shouldn't do my learn in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine thousand nine hundred that that that doesn't it. It still doesn't mean that i i shouldn't obviously go do my research and everything else correct but kareem has to be if considered to be one of the greatest players of all time by far the least covered because fool most disrespected you you could save us most disrespected. Now's asking you this identity. We we were having this argument. Who was the best player during that showtime. The best player probably magic as i was in his prime magic made the other players better but the most unstoppable player was from a if you say the the the best player during the the showtime era was shack. I'm sorry was <hes> was magic. Then you're saying cream was the second best player during that tenure. I'm not making anything anything away from from korean right when i look at shack <hes> and those three n._b._a. Championships the lakers one shocked to me was by far the best player here and at that time in the league you could put on any team in the n._b._a. And they were going to compete for an n._b._a. Championship and that's not to discredit kobe kobe just wasn't at that stage of his career but i couldn't couldn't make the same argument in a different way if the if the showtime lakers had magic but not kareem they don't win those titles and if the lakers were shack jack didn't have kobe they don't know so kareem was on the lakers four years before magic there and look again. This is in in to discredit kareem in any way possible that you already did know the korean or a empty. The bottom line is kareem. I'm on a shack cat three n._b._a. Championships three finals m._v._p. There was no question that show these at that time you just said check had three n._b._a. Championships and three finals v._p.'s appease okay cream at five wait. A minute premed sick and he had six n._b._a. Regular m._v._p. Yes but he had six total corral one in milwaukee right right over the lakers so shack had four but i'm just telling you what i guess. Here's my question on what measure in terms of greatest lakers center shack better than korean yeah breakdown the fourteen years to eight years. I can't have an argument there right fourteen years for kareem abdul jabbar but if you look at the numbers shack was with the lakers compared to the numbers career with the lakers you can make some argument right here because <hes> cream had to shoot a bullet magic and a guy named james worthy. What about kobe bryant kobe bryant. That's okay. You're still as long as you're still making. A hat only have three n._b._a. Championships in had cream with first of all was the most unstoppable offensive player ever he was eleven times all defense kareem defend people used to say that wilt chamberlain was the greatest offense of senator everett and bill russell was the greatest defensive center and when kareem came along he was half russell half chamberlain right michael. You love shack. Oh love you cannot put him ahead of korean. No no shock wouldn't do that either. Even he has enough respect to say he's <hes> next to korean and my my purpose is not to disrespect kareem. It literally is i. I would say a player that even when i look back she'll type magic's my favorite player that i've ever watched right. I don't think there's enough pablo corinne because if there was it would be different because as thirty six year old i know kareem was one of the greatest ever do it but in my era watching shack i thought shack was the most dominating player that ever saw you didn't see colfax. Would you say he's the greatest lefty the dodgers ever the hat so how do you. How do you say that you weren't around colfax but didn't understand his history yeah but you cannot compare what i'm talking shocking and kareem. You're talking about two. I love the most dominating players to ever so fair kershaw. One kershaw doesn't have one cannot go down as dan marino and charles barkley and calm on low night with those players that never but alan. Here's here's another argument for kareem that i don't think you're figuring into the equation. Kareem was the best high school. We'll player ever not even close the best college player variety sixty seven and two in college and we're just talking laker time because i cannot but here's the thing i mean the championships john wooden and u._c._l._a. So before they both got the lakers they were very haired both number one overall n._b._a. Hey drafi yes. Then kareem comes into the n._b._a. And by any measure by any statistical measure offensively defensively of league all star appearances all defense appearances finals you name it kareem has more than check every single way you look at what he doesn't have have the ones that he doesn't have. He's got the five n._b._a. Championships. You said that he was the second best player on that. In that showtime era i would argue that both those players were invaluable invaluable and post-shave kobe needed both both cream and magic needed course what what title that koby until he got dwayne wade the one one one thing shack does have in that era is those three finals m._v._p.'s would which would tell me that he was obviously the best player on that team during that back to back to back championship kinship that doesn't make the argument that it's all said and done. Kareem is the second best center any of that stuff but i think you could stand here and make legitimate argument. That shack was the the best center. Obviously i'm not gonna say one of the centers because we already know that you do. We'll chamber wilt chamberlain naming there but he can't really even be in that argument for his tenure as a laker one one championship one finals m._v._p. Only played five years and if you look at shack verse kareem twenty-seven points a game to twenty two points a game twelve rebounds tonight and a half statistically weekly shack wins but they're six more years. Karim played as the los angeles lakers game shack sheck took the lakers to the finals four out of five years yeah yeah and one three of them. Kareem took the lakers to the finals eight times one one five. I mean by any whatever you compare that does that compare to mean that if if shack would have had fourteen years with the los angeles lakers had more trips. I can't make that argument. Michael thinks that michaelson nicholson shaq and kobe would have stayed together they would've they would've won. Multiple more longer shock was motivated. I always thought this. This is the thing that i always thought when you look at when you look at that showtime era if you think magic was the best player at that time and look. I wasn't even born yet but in one thousand nine hundred eighty when kareem went down with the injury lakers go to philadelphia adelphia win game six in agile johnson's rookie year and you're right. It's one game anybody can win one game but i thought magic was the best during that timeframe <hes> in the eighty s i look at shack in that that obviously that three pete for the lakers and making it to the championship four to five years the bottom line is during that stage age. You could have put him. Anywhere in the league team had a shot at n._b._a. Chip and that's the only thing i'm comparing it to yeah. I think that this is also your thirty six. This is also biproduct age age but greg. How old are you thirty five thirty six on sunday happy birthday early thank you. I'm great thanks. I'm chris center of all time. Greg is who kareem abdul-jabbar and and so how does i don't know because sla has these all these different stats that he's throwing out there and not realizing that just like real information the stats they've been so much but it's really actually watching the game beyond us the most important that is the fact that korean played fourteen years with the lakers. This is why if you say the lakers lakers greatest so many can make an argument for kobe not only because you want five n._b._a. Championships but but he was with the lakers for twenty total years you can make that argument over magic just because of his tenure with a laker so i get it at the end of the day. If if your arguments comedian does a bar completely makes sense i will i just say out of all the all time greats kareem has to be then the lease covered because yeah and probably the least respect him and elgin baylor mike. I think that if you're having an honest discussion if you're throwing out all like regional biases of who the greatest player in n._b._a. History is there's only three people who can be versus just three here. It's michael jordan bill russell and kareem abdul-jabbar wait. I thought he was gonna say wilt well. Wait a minute overlook wilt two titles and you ask that. I will say this john. If you ask today to somebody who's probably under forty years old. Yeah i think their top three is going to be different. Imagine magics and mine could magic because he made other players better but i'm talking about just one thing about this kareem. What did he lose one game in high school. Yeah two games in college jeff and i don't think he ever had a losing record as medically equalled leaning if you had korean they couldn't stop him alan. They took the dunk at a college basketball because of corinne. We need to reinforce the backboards for shack breaking so many over michael. What was it like to try and guard kareem like if you played defense when he score anyway yeah because <hes> i mean causey was unperfect miss a shot or two but if you let them swing to his last show was over that that hook was automatic silkair on. I'm gonna take away the hook. I'm not gonna let him swing into the lane which i try to do and make him go to the right shoulder the other way he had a turnaround shot like an akim lajoie's or he could just go up and under way karen mikhail so yeah counter move. If you took away his favorite rid move he found a way to score on and with his left hand also throw left and skyhook and go the other way. He was unstoppable and he hit his free throws exactly why that was the one thing you could say about about check. He was a fifty percent free throws so if he was killing you you could just found him. Kareem was way better for me to educate myself. How do i educate myself better on kareem. You told me to watch h._b._o. H._b._o. Go you can go to right now called kareem minority of one that covers his entire entire career and michael. I tell me if hyperbole i think from the time kareem was seventeen or eighteen years old when he was a senior power memorial going to u._c._l._a. To the time he ended his career with the lakers he may have been the most recognizable person on the planet knows him or ali. Ali was definitely the most recognizable person in maybe history because he was so tall so famous i i don't think he walks into any airport in the world and the mount rushmore most recognizable people outside of political figures. Everybody knows where the president or leader of a country looks like but as far as private citizen yeah he definitely would be in the mount rushmore most recognizable figure ever alone pele whoever the sokha god is at a time i had a friend of mine had kareem speak to a business class at u._c._l._a. and he needed a moderator needed an interview or so he asked me to do it and this was four or five years ago and so i sat down kareem at u._c._l._a. In front of maybe one hundred people and i said is i just started just out of curiosity. I started good at throwing out like the most famous people in history asking if kareem had met him i said. Did you meet jackie robinson. He said oh yeah i said. Did you meet dr martin luther king king yes. There wasn't a famous person from the sixties. That kareem didn't meet. He met bill russell at young age. He met wilt every he knew jim brown. He knew i mean critical figures malcolm x. The kareem has matt almost every famous person in the world. You know he was the clintons. Put him on a <hes> like a presidential advisory board. He's had an extraordinary life in that in that special. You brought a balanced on h._b._o. Kareem minority of one talks about that he's written seven books and i don't think any of them had one was a basketball autobiography and all the rest of them. He wrote a book about the harlem renaissance. He's is written books about art. He escaped airman. I believe soldiers. He is a fascinating figure. If we're just comparing basketball players i think think he's an and to your point earlier. The fact that he doesn't come up automatically and conversation michael probably has to do with the fact that korean did not love the the media and so the media didn't love him back right exac and this allen is where i will kind of turn towards your argument shaq was the greatest marriage of sports and entertainment aiman in los angeles since magic john oh yeah nobody understood the media and the l._a. Market better than shaquille o'neil he would. Did you know everything from his shock laws. I mean he would you know give nate he how he knew how to act before and after games he was playful and he was smart he told me once and i'm i'm sure this is still the case that he had not spent a dollar of his basketball salvage right that he just lived off his endorsement smart and he he still has some um you know he he ring the the video bell he has papa. John's aren't ships lined up the general insurance. He may be the smartest zero zero business. Let the other one would argue here but yet but he may be the smartest businessman slash athlete. That's come through l. a. It's either him or match and probably that helped from an exposure standpoint like you were just mentioning if korean didn't really have that person probably didn't even care for it than someone like me is making an argument that right. Maybe i shouldn't be making that argument well. When is the next addition of lakers talk yeah. What's the next stupid thing you can actually next monday. Bring this up next monday and let us know because i think the younger people all might agree with you. I i get a lot like you. Were just talking about on twitter. There's there's definitely a lot of older people that will call into anybody over the age of forty and even greg right. Who's who's the same age as you didn't like for you. This was like no hesitation easy easy without question pass el aguila the l. e. sports seen this is intriguing. Put the last one who was the most intriguing ono the greatest owner and l._a.'s ports dr bus or donald sterling listen about that guy mt so so is the argument you're making that shack should be compared to donald's no no no no let me help. No one should ed to donald sterling championships three three m._v._p. Shack a lot of people are gonna say shock but no. It's kareem are allan. Thank you mixed monday. The day straight.

L._a. mason and ireland today it's michael thompson and ireland. We got fast right coming up for you about half an hour michael. I saw this and wanted to get your reaction to it. Buffalo wild wings love them. Already is introducing introducing a new advertising campaign next week did encourages fans to get a football pre-nup. Here's the the idea you wanna. Watch your favorite team every week as as well as some other games you don't wanna miss you and your partner go to football pre-nup dot dot com and they've set up a whole contract now you and i we tell our wives because we work in the sports radio business. We need to watch all these kind of get away with this business but i grant you. I probably have tell michelle. I cannot miss this game right all right so thursday four o'clock u._c._l._a. U._c._l._a. cincinnati is thursday at four now. Greg lives in a house with his girlfriend and two kids so he's got other responsibilities. You and i kind of watch whatever we went. Let's pretend for the sake of argument that we needed to get a football pre-nup freenet. Here's how the if you go to that website. Here's out works we get to watch our team and or games without interruption but she gets something in return for each team or game that we want so michael in your football pre-nup. Jimmy julie says okay you can have have one team and you can watch every one of their games all right. Take the warriors and the lakers out because you get paid to watch the lakers and clay. She's gonna watch anyway so you get one team. It can be an n._f._l. Team it can it can be a major league baseball team. Be soccer team. What's the one team you're putting in the pre nup contract probably the chiefs 'cause. I love to watch patrick. Mahomes also fleeing the football around all right great. How about you. You got a contract with michelle. You get a team to put in team. I can't do that. That's not fair but that doesn't mean you can't can't watch the other stuff but this guarantees. You get to watch every game. This team in the pre-nup contract plays every game every a single game you could do u._c._l._a. And you would get football and basketball. You could do the dodgers and get one hundred sixty two you. Could you could do the lakers in a year. They have lebron and anthony davis but this whatever team you pick like choosing between my children yes but the guarantees you that she cannot give you something to do during one of these games games. What team are you picking. I think i'm going to go with the lakers because the dodgers that's too many games to ask for one hundred and sixty two games plus playoffs and all that kind of stuff so i can. I can get away with. I think with the lakers kind of missing u._c._l._a. Would suck <hes> okay so i would probably pick industry leander's red zone. Oh aw well the problem is though i wouldn't see any. I don't have any playoff games in the pre-nup contracts. Because the red zone goes up you could watch the lakers all the way right winning winning winning the n._b._a. Finals now we also get you get a game or two but let's for the sake of this pick a game so michael outside of the chiefs you get one game. You can pick the super bowl. You can pick the n._b._a. Finals you can pick the u._s. Open final. You can pick the wimbledon final. You can get something else goes into the pre-nup contract that no matter what you cannot be interrupted by your family. What game or event would you put in there. It would be the same sport but because this event happens prince a few times a year at put an esa whenever there's a mega fight coming on canal over kovalyov joshua versus walla walla versus this fury whenever the mega fight on t._v. allowed to watch it okay greg. You would probably a world series so you can get those or no. When would it be <hes> all n._b._a. Finals what if the lakers in the n._b._a. Funds you get them by taking the league but if they don't make it then this would guarantee you get to watch n._b._a. I i will watch the world series at the dodgers weren't in it okay so i would probably go the super bowl yeah me too. I know missing the superior. I don't care who's at my other exactly so so now. This is where it gets tricky now. Michael entertain the premise here. Julie gets to get something in return out of you. What do you think she would ask for. That's a good one. I mean she's not. She's a she's never demanding. She travels a lot but she gets something here yeah. She gets a chip in the game so she asks you to clean something to go on a trip with. I love you clean. I'm always cleaning. I'm a sweeper and dishwasher andrea too so don't ask me dude x._m. I happily clean up the house. <hes> go get her car service. What would you what what what is she not liked to do that. She would appreciate you doing a typical typical woman. She loves to shop. Can you say that these days so you can shop she doesn't she doesn't do it excessively well. She'll bayelsa so i don't ever denier of eighty she wants to do she can do but i guess if she wanted to. She wanted to go away for a weekend with some of my girlfriends. Go hang out. I'm i'm all for that so i don't. I don't have anything that she does and i say no don't do that. She loves the workout. I encourage workout as much as she wants so she whatever she would. She went up to any agreement with me because i'm fine right okay great. What do you think you're so. It asked for what she would ask me to. Basically put my phone away and take guys shut off. No twitter good one would be willing to do that. You can't because of our business great great just went what ten days you connected nanny. I mean okay nothing whatsoever so i can do that when i go away for those ten days but if it was like a middle of the work week and i have to shut up twitter and my phone i would be a disaster for me. What lisa would say to me and i never i know she'll tell you know golfing. Oh yeah when he goes golfing she would try and you're right michael. She would try and limited limited on this trip to tahoe. She said there you are not playing more than two rounds of golf wouldn't doesn't that make you miserable and what i said i said i said okay okay but i may try and sneak in third round so that you know so i think she came in she goes. I'm playing tennis thursday at four o'clock and i go. That's exactly what i'm playing. My third round snuck it in she would say she takes a girl's trip. She would say okay you get the football prenatal and nice games in return. I cannot say no to any girls trip out so she would like right. She's going to u._s. Open next week. She's going to orlando to play tennis in a tennis tournament next month yeah but of course she's going to new york with a friend of hers and my mom and her mom in january january when you and i are here on a home and i like it she doesn't she would say that would give her a hall pass to do whatever she wants. But if you want to go to this football pre-nup dot com it's actually pretty smart. Move by buffalo wild wings because they're trying to us once they get you to sign the football pre-nup and it's binding that one thing take your partner can't do is they can't ban you from going to buffalo wild wings. You get to go to watch the games there whenever you want. It was once a week. Why would a spouse deny her husband or a a significant partner that once a week <hes> it's not it's thursday night football college games on sunday sunday day all day we watch football and then monday we watch monday night football like the hard thing for you and i would be if they said was which one of those you want to give up ooh thursday saturday sunday or monday. I'd probably give up monday through thursday. Games are always better the saturday games that's five six seven games games college football sundays every team yet mondays mondays like leftover day monday i could i could do. I could do it on monday night football but then i would encourage her to go on a girl's trip. It didn't want to check that out. Go to football pre-nup dot com mason ireland michael thompson information s._p._n. L._a. mason and ireland show michael thompsons information coming up in about twenty minutes michael. We live in a society now. It's very polarized where a lot of a lot of people wanna cancel people that make mistakes like they say when people make mistakes you know a lot of this is is is politically motivated but it crosses over into sports. Let's say you're a coach college. Football coach at a major university of top twenty five school and a kid who has a marijuana charge on his record and already got in trouble once gets pulled over and he's got a gun in his glove box at that point. It would be a second mistake. Would you dismiss them from the team suspend them if that's all you know if that's he's not. It's not a bad kid. Here's the practice on time. He's got a marijuana charge already got in trouble once and now he gets pulled over and arrested for gun possession in his glove compartment which he's not supposed to have what how do you. How do you handle that if it's an illegal gun because you know some people can have a gun and have the permit to carry it right. I wouldn't encourage it. Some people have that right. If it's a legal if if is an illegal gun obviously i was spending. I would call him into my office. Have a nice serious talk with him. If it's you know let them understand that sun you hear on scholarship the ship you have an opportunity to really make the most out of your life. Get a free education who knows maybe get to the n._f._l. Our career and right now on your blow in it and <hes> but i would definitely suspend him. You would not dismiss them. Fouling dismiss three strikes in route. You do something stupid again. After this. I hate to throw them away especially ebbets nonviolent. Just throw them away but i don't know i mean it is a good question ireland. If you let me tell you why i'm not talking about somebody assault somebody obviously absurdly if he puts his hands on some on a woman or beats up a woman or something then you gotta go but if it's something that is non violent and just stupid to just throw them away i don't know i guess i'd give him another chance but he'd have to go through some kind of some suspension i i talked to the president of school. Talk to the athletic director. What do you think is <hes>. <hes> you know obviously he has to go through due process. He's got to go through the courts but because they found an illegal gun in his possession <hes>. I guess that's pretty <hes> pretty obvious what was going on. There and i say okay <hes> mister a._d. Mr president of the school. What should we do how long to suspend. I don't want to just dismiss it from the team and put on a st. Maybe some of the school. I pick him up but we don't know so. What do you think they they say half a season that's fine. You know who agrees with you. <hes> let me think somebody walks. I'd be surprised yeah okay then. I gotta think about who let's see someone who was surprising agrees with me. I'm trying to think of the grumpiest man sports nick sabin correct. Here's how here's the gropius man is board. Here's why i brought it up. There is a video making the rounds. It's kind of been given new life over the last few days about the fact that we now live in in an area in an era where if a kid of college kid makes a mistake something like marijuana physician island nonviolent that everyone is clamoring to get rid of these kids kick them out of your program program that blah blah blah. Nick sabin went on a ran a few years ago and people are pulling it out because everywhere every time. There's a report of a kid at a major university. Everyone gets on the coach to say get that kid out of your program. You got to cut the cancer out of your program. Blah blah blah sabin is a heart. You know he's the like you say. That grumpy staff is is coach series. He believes in second chances. Here's the rant that everyone is pulling out as there's these reports across the country these kids getting into trouble. This was nick sabin as the alabama alabama head coach a few years ago. There's always a lot of criticism out there when somebody does something wrong. Everybody wants to know how you gonna punish the guy but there's not enough for nineteen and twenty year old kids people out there saying. Why don't you give them another chance. I so i'm gonna give a speech right now. Alabama this like where do you want him to be guy makes a mistake. Where do you want him to be the only being street or do you want him to be here. Graduating you know when i was over there at nagorski moose and mohammed armagh played fifteen years for the carolina panthers play for me at michigan state everybody in the school every newspaper guy. Everybody was killing a guy because he got in trouble and said there's no way should be on our team. I didn't kick him off. The team suspended him. I made them do stuff. He graduated away from michigan state. He played fifteen years in the league. He's a president of a company now and he has seven children and his oldest daughter goes to princeton. So who is right. I feel strongly about this now really strong about all the criticism out there of every guy it's nineteen years old that makes a mistake and you kill them and then some people won't stand up for them so my question to you is where do you want to be condemn a life sentence or do you want the guy to have his children on princeton. I think he makes some really good. Points there and bring in particular. I think the age thing is is important when he's talking when you're talking about nineteen and twenty year old kids if i go back and look at the ten dumbest decisions i made in life at least seven of them would be when i was in college a little more and moose in mohammed. He's now the managing director at a private equity firm axiom capital partners a fermi co-founded bounded. He created the foundation for kids dedicating to improving the mental and physical development of children in his spokesman for the men for change in an organization which helps raise money for impoverished women's shelters. He's adopted two of his six children from ethiopia and his high school fitness center was named named after him after he donated fifty grand worth of equipment. What happened was saving wasn't actually the head coach when mohammed got caught with a gun that was george perlas airless who wanna savings mentors but when saving became the head coach the next year they all said you gotta get rid of mohammed. He's a troublemaker. He's good and and so save and said no. He's he's a good kid. I'm gonna suspend him in and make sure he gets straight. Which is why. I really liked your answer. You've gotta sit down and say you're blowing it. You can follow this path or you can go the other way now. It's a slippery slope because there is domestic violence in college campus. That's the line you can't cross in that when you have your initial meeting with your team before practice star or whatever and they're all in the same when we seem to me rooms there in that is an issue. You have to bring up with your team and if i was a head coach i bring us guys. I'm very tolerant man. I'll try to be a tolerant person with you. I understand you're eighteen nineteen years of age twenty years of age and we all make mistakes. We're not nobody's perfect perfect and i will give you a second chance if you you know do certain things x._y._z. Whatever it is but if you punch anybody if you punch a woman if you get into a domestic dispute with the with a co ed on this campus you are done. You have to understand that yeah we understand understand before we even have our first our first walk through or whatever if you get yourself in that situation at the courts take care of you but you will be off this team immediately. If you're that stupid to actually hit a woman and i understand even don't get into a fight with another guy on campus be smart enough to walk away. Obviously if someone attacks you you have a right to defend yourself but don't be the instigator doesn't out and get into physical altercations because if that happens then i can't stand with you yeah i i. It's you know we live in a world where second chances now are debated everyday like all these people that have been caught up in the me. Two skandal lost their career over it. Now these are adults alz twenty accusations though and but some of these guys can't come back and i think sabin makes a good point. You have to ask the question all the time. If you're we're seeing get rid of this person basically cancel them get. Where do you want him to go. Yeah what do you want me to do. Those are fair questions to ask okay coming up next. Michael has not on a show since team u._s._a. Lost in basketball snapping the world's longest winning streak are they in trouble for the world championships next week last mt about that and fast-tracking ten minutes e._s._p._n. L._a. Hey mason and ireland show a michael. Thompson is information and we're giving away tickets to the twenty nine hundred big big three championship. It's this sunday staple center. You can watch ice oh joe and the triplets joe johnson who looks like it'll be the m._v._p. This year take on stephen jackson and the killer threes. Here's how you can win. Call now eight seven seven seven ten e._s._p._n. Caller seven and ten win win four packs of tickets. The two thousand nineteen big three championship in l._a. This sunday at staples center tickets on sale now or catch the action live on c._b._s. Too at noon noon on sunday they got about fifteen thousand people that game <hes> yes the crowds in johnson's been great now all right so michael have you toward the morning show drew rosenhaus for those you haven't heard it this is it play curtis the morning showing the important questions asking them burning questions and committed to asking crew rosenhaus how he's doing drew good morning. How are you good morning. Good morning andrew aw early in the morning andrew good yeah yeah you know working hard kim john morning show with keyshawn l z and travis drew good morning. How are you weekday mornings from six to ten one andrew how are you. I just ran into morales in the hallway. He told me that to unedited really he didn't netted they. All asked drew rosenhaus in a row drew. How are you doing it over and over. I'm still annoyed that that is the most spectacular robo ever when mason i were doing morning shows you are literally half awake so you don't necessarily hear what the person next to you is saying saying it obviously all three of them ignored each other that is osso bucco. I mentioned big three and basketball speaking of basketball u._s._a. Lost in australia over the weekend for the first time since two thousand six. It's snapped a seventy eight game streak now obviously the best n._b._a. Players are not on this team. Almost everybody turned it down. Probably the best player in the team would be kemba walker occurs. You agree yeah. He's the best player so keeping that in mind now they came back. They rebounded with a win over canada and now the head over to china and the tournament is next week. Kyle coups aspect aspect kuzina second but who's got hurt and so he's coming home. He's not going to be on the team. Are they. Gonna win this. They're still the favorites. It's if you look in vegas but australia beat them. Patty mills had thirty points. Does the u._s. have enough firepower to win this tournament. Yeah i believe so so. I think they will loss it in australia. Even though it was just you know exhibition game just was show. I think that will come up and at mayo realize that these other countries are bleeding. They can't beat them and <hes> <hes> they came out and destroy kennedy today canada's have any n._b._a. Places for just cory joseph on it but serbia is going to be serbia. Spain and australia will be the toughest competition asian but i think that loss in australia woke him up. I asked this question yesterday. When brian was here brian kennedy. I can't decide how i feel feel about. Coups being sent home on one hand. I'm really disappointed because he was playing really well and it would have been fun for him to be on the team on the other hand. I'm kind china glad if he has any injury issues that he's coming home and he's going to rehab it rather than going to china twice in two months because remember the lakers offers are going to china go to china to travel tough ireland well thirteen hour flight and first-class. It's like living in an apartment in the first class. Okay okay so keep in mind michael l._a. Australia australia back yeah l. a. china lease l._a._n. Back l._a. To china and again elliott china tobacco tough out pilots do it. Well wait a minute. This season starts right after that later. I'm really excited about kuzina this year. I think in that first game australia when he went four out of five three and played really well. I think who's going to have a monster season as a laker fan. I'm not only it bummed out. He's got a wrote. The china wait a minute what they weren't any of the real players play on no they. I think they made a mistake not go. Uh-huh hurt durant gets a break recovering. Whoever thought guys who are healthy tyree going yeah. I thought all the guys who are healthy and in the any league players should be there. It's it's fun to collect these gold medals. You're not going to be doing it forever. <hes> i i would. I would recommend they do it. I've been around team u._s._a. These guys are treated like visiting heads of state <hes> they played eighteen minutes a game so the competition isn't that stiff except for a couple of countries so i don't think that taxing on the body at all is you guys. Is it harder to win the world championship which is next week or the olympic gold medal the world champions because there's more competition more teams twenty four teams in a world cup only twelve and the olympic games even though the teams are decently olympic as you had to play as many games and if so is it single elimination in the world cup <hes> you play play pool play i verse <hes> you go through your pool and then after that a single elimination once you get out of your pool. Who's the best is the best player in the tournament yeah because aziz thank you for greece. I guess this is plain for greece up. He had two of his brothers on the team. One of them got cut so i think one brother is still in a team within but greece is not a factor coast is when the lakers signed he'll be he'll be in camp. I think he's still not but greece's and a factor not gonna metal. I'll be shocked even with yana yeah. He's a one man team so i don't think the chance milwaukee milwaukee was legit now. They had good players roster but <hes> no the honest honest probably is the best player in the tournament the probably right so speaking on us and okay so there's two guys that are in this boat janas and ben simmons. Both of them had great years ears. Neither one of them can shoot particularly can shoot three. Can they continue to have great years if they don't ever learn how to shoot the threes or do they have to add that to their game they can they can continue they should add it and they probably will get better as time goes along. I don't think ben simmons attorney michael cooper from three or byron scott from three three but he'll he'll get a little bit better. He's going to shoot a lot of threes. Jaanus will get better. He'll ever be kevin durant from that range but you'll get better career about jason kidd. They said that about uh-huh has developed. That's true jaanus jaanus. I don't think let's turn to go k b but maybe you'll get better be more respectable out there. <hes> but that's that's why i i don't know that's why it's hard for me at. I don't understand why ben simmons isn't playing for australia. He's twenty one years of age. How do the best player in austria and not be playing for his team but anyway but i think they'll eventually get better both similar nebi three point shooter but i think he'll be be better from mid range as as his career roles no embiid in the world cup right because they don't qualify okay yeah. It'll be interesting to watch. You're gonna get up to two in the morning and watch some of these games. I'll tape. That's got a tough because i i wanna watch these games. By by the time i get on the internet i always checking. I find out what the score is kind of ruins but also watch all right coming up next fasttrack. I let me tell you about power pro plumbing <hes> now their power pro plumbing heating and air. They added eighty energy efficient heating and cooling system to my house.

Man you know flare at your hero. That's right every time he does. Come on t._v. Does nobody nobody could serve yeah. I think that's the biggest smile i've ever seen you have when our statistician doug mand surprised hugh and brought rick flair on with us at a laker being yeah i mean that that that was the the greatest laker game i've ever attended that that i was playing in no question about it to have rick flair ben that he actually knows my name because we've got that minnesota connection used to wrestle right university of minnesota well. Your name is retired in that building in the minnesota arena true true that is pretty cool yeah so michael's here for today and we've got in a bunch of stuff. <hes> shaq and kobe are added again. We'll get into that in a minute. A cocoa gov yesterday looked like she was in massive trouble. Then came back <hes> we'll. We'll keep you posted in the u._s. Open venus's out there right now playing the rams play tomorrow matter of fact programming note. Tomorrow dell's going to be sitting where you're sitting. He's feeling for mason tomorrow and we're only on for two hours because the rams pregame starts at two o'clock so fasttrack. Tomorrow is going to be at one o'clock but last night we'll start with this. The dodgers finally found their offense. They had been struggling. They scored eight runs in the first five innings michael prior to that scored eight runs in their last three games combined a four games combined a walker bueller eleven strikeouts six shutout innings and got got to win jack petersen a._j. Pollock homered both pollack and met beatty had three hits each but here's my question okay so we talked a lot about greg the the other way. You and i didn't think justin turner was gonna get suspended but he did so michael. We talked about in yesterday's show. How turner would be playing third base and the guy that threw him out the empire. Rob drake would be the third base umpire side be standing next to each other and dave roberts before the game came out and said no. It's a plan day off for justin turner. He's not playing so wanted to suspend them. Yes that's my question greg. Why wouldn't you if you knew you weren't gonna play justin turner what rather than and it's like zero attention of playing rather than deal with this appeal. I know my turner some money but nobody ever wins. One game appeals appeals no. Why wouldn't they just let turner serve. The suspension on this quote unquote plan day off. The only thing that i can think of is that it's all about a principle support thing. It's about the fact that he didn't deserve to be kicked out of that game. He shouldn't be suspended so he's gonna make it so that he doesn't get suspended event right. That's the only reason i can think of because it does cost them some money but he's probably going to lose and that means now. You've got to take him out of a game game that he was going to be helpful in last night. You knew he wasn't gonna play right so you might as well have just left them off. Actually completely agree with you but now it's going to be another scheduled day off in the middle of september like he doesn't want to give the money though it's probably what thousand bucks twenty five dollars what happens to be but he's also making a lot of money. He's not gonna win. Is i mean you never win one game. They can't suspend it to half a game. I mean reduce. Its you can reduce it to justify mine yeah but i don't think they will do you. I hope so but i don't no i don't think so all right so but the dodgers are begging the wind con they'll play another game in san diego and then they're doing something weird iceland san diego so i know this that the airport is in an area called point loma that super nice so they had <hes> airplane restrictions put in like thirty years ago. You can't take off after ten o'clock so in order to get to arizona they would have had to bus to l._a. And then fly to zona sur gonna spend the night in san diego tonight and flight arizona tomorrow even though the game in arizona is tomorrow night now that wasn't allowed in the n._b._a. It's not right likely michael and i always have my one time in all the years we've been traveling. Did we travel on a day game and that's when we had an airplane malfunction. Remember we flew to portland the david game because we had you may have already been up there but one day we were flying to portland after a home game and there was a mechanical problem with the plane so rather than stay at the airport for four hours while they worked on the plane everybody went home went to bed and we came back in nine in the morning and flew up there and then played that night and flew back <hes> but that that was an emergency so the dodgers are just. They're going to fly in day of now. They've got the whole day to get there and it's only an hour flight to phoenix deal so so five but i wanted to ask you it's so so turner is appealing this suspension that none of us think he should have got all right he he made contact with an umpire here but turner maintains and i think he's actually write that. The empire made contact with him. He was the empire was walking to his post. Game room and turner was in the path and the empire just kept walking and it was very incidental but michael. What's happening. Is i think these umpires because they're losing power. We can now review do any call that involves a tag or a or standing on a basal video review has taken all decisions out so the only thing they can do as as an umpire independently is call balls and strikes and if somebody gets them mad they can throw him out. This is what happened last night. In a game where justin verlander somebody people pay to see was pitching and his team was up at the time greg something like ten to one and nothing yeah it was nine signed nothing and here's what happened overlander for lender rocks and delivers a three two and family is this what toward right center resnick on his horse. It's passed and one hops. The wall on his way to second base is fan. He around second bubble put on the brakes. See thought about three but family settled for his second double of the night and justin justin verlander did he just get thrown out. There is a pitch right before at that verlinden thought was strike three and i think he sets up to home. Plate umpire pad hobart mark and hobart pasta and had happened after that double is now a._j. Hinch out there with hct and fair lander being separated by bench coach joe is spot bottom as well as first base umpire greg gibson as ver- lander has been objected from this ball game now michael he was ejected for saying something to the empire when his back was to the up so picture the empire standing at home plate verlet andrew who thought he threw strike three the pitch before that was facing centerfield centerfield and he was cussing yelling and he was mad and the empire said. I don't wanna hear anymore out of you. You're gone now. Here's verleger after the game as as an umpire. I think pattni's understand that this emotional game. I mean sometimes when things don't go your way you kind of let the note. I thought i thought i did it in a in a doc respectful away as i could with where motions were at as the players developing i kind of like i told him. I thought it was a strike. He told me those ball that went back and forth. There's a little bit and then i turn my back and express one more time that i that. I thought it was outside that i didn't think outside. He felt that that warranted injection. I i wasn't trying to be an antagonised. I was trying to get my point across passionately. Obviously this is a passionate. I'm a passionate player like i said my back was turned. I guess as he heard heard what i said and i think the language up a little bit but it wasn't <hes> towards towards my opinion of the call i mean look i understand if these guys are humans too. I mean they're back. They're doing their best job. I think that they're taught along the way to try to not <hes> escalate situation to deescalate situation and clearly. I was just venting venting my my last little piece. I had turned my back. I didn't even know ejected me until i was told i mean everybody could end better but i think those guys are supposed to be mediators all right michael now. This is something that you and i have talked about a lot. You made it through your whole career without ever getting a technical foul. You're never ejected. You never got a technical foul but i agree with earlier here. It's an emotional game this professional sports these guys are being paid millions of dollars. His back was turned the empire. I i don't think turner should have got suspended on monday night and i don't think verlinden should have been thrown out last night. Am i wrong not at all of these referees today n._f._l. Or n._b._a. Mainly baseball drive me crazy. How thin skinned they are and how quickly are to eject especially stars when people pay to come see people like verlinden pitch pitch all these fans in the stands and you got to be more tolerant. It's like eep verlinden says an n._b._a. Player say it's an emotional game emotions going to get the best of you. If you you utter a you know a little swearword or profane word so watch l. guy shut up now if he continues to be rachel and continues to be rate you i can understand you throwing them out but in and in the heat of the moment you gotta let these guys emotes some <hes> some some energy let him let them express themselves and if they get too belligerent then you understand why you throw him out but in the heat of the moment guy says it's a bleeping bad call. I refuse to tell us shut the beep up your big baby and right. There's a great clip from n._b._a. Suggest kersee bill walton is yellen grass occurs and kersee while the game is going on says shut up you big baby. Just play exactly i. That's how you came into places the same kind of bleeping call is that an reference. Tell you to shut up and now you say that now you get thrown out. It's just too thin skin. I think <hes> colorful language and arguing with umpires and n._b._a. Rests add a little bit more excitement and intrigue to the game. Believe me when when you see a referee and a player <hes> get into the ferstl look away they do this horrible. They all they'll go look at this. They all want to see it right and nobody can hear what they're saying. What's the baseball field. Lever one year was biked eight and he came out in every other word was the and they let him argue for like five minutes away. How empire was just say. It's so loudly with his face of centerfield and you're at home plate. How'd you hear what the guy says well he did and even if you do your job is not to affect the game in any way possible. It's just invert lander. You can walk out there after the inning and or you're you're standing right next to the doctor and you say hey if you're if if greg's pitching and michael. You're the catcher in the empire acquire. I would say michael. I heard what great just said about me and you've got to get to him. I don't want to throw them out but this is a warning. I'm warning you and him if he does that to me again. He's outta here rather than just throw you out greg simon ward winter. You're going to the hall of fame. People pay to see you. I don't get this yeah. Justin verlander said it best when he said you know they're. They're there to try and ease the situation instead of making it worse but i mean think about it when you're let's say you and your wife are having an argument and you walk out of the door and you start walking away from renew. Call her the b word which i didn't say you would ever do but you said something crazy like that bet she would get hit this g._b. So angering that would escalate it even more so than he shouldn't have kept going saying the things that he was saying even with your back turned it doesn't matter but the empires there to de-escalate not to elevate by the way if i'd etiquette in the head with a tennis right exactly referees a too too much into power trips. They think it's all about them and it couldn't be further not about at them. Here's the thing if i was an official in and these guys have hard jobs michael. We know you and i know some of these <hes> n._b._a. Officials integrate geysers two or three of them you plating blading it's leeann would exactly and workman but all these guys bill spooners great guy mccutchen who we know pretty well who's now gone up to to an advisory advisory role with the league. Money's a great guy but i if i was a referee i swear a guy would have have to grab me physically before it throw him. There's nothing he could say and at some point. If i felt like he had crossed the line i would say to him it michael enough yeah i've had it. We're not talking about this anymore. I don't wanna throw you out but i will if you keep going. Do you understand me but they don't go to that concede. Some guys will do it. They'll give warning and you know but you're right. If i was a refereed a guys use the f. word to criticize my call. You know it didn't agree with me on a call. I'd say okay calm down. Calm down now if you if you just keep going and going and going with all the fascinating obviously you gotta throw him out but i give them a warning. It's it's an emotional game. Guys got a lot in the line a lot of pride on the line sometimes the plan bad. They're in a bad mood and he may say the wrong thing. It's just give them a warning. Calm down in this in more than anything else. This is an entertainment product base wasn't entertainment product so i don't get to watch justin turner play now because an empire feelings hurt. Oh that's the worst also nine nothing in a six in the sixth inning where they were just destroying right. It was a beatdown right didn't matter he went done well vert yeah but virtually under was pitching a shutout. He would have probably been lost the game all right coming up next mason used to say mason and i both used to say if we if we ever came unprepared for a day of shows all we would have have to do in the first five minutes say all right. Why did the two thousand lakers break up. Shacks fodder. Kobe's your calls does next and it would be like every line to our checking. Kobe have kind of reignited it or have they. I was there with when the shock was talking about this game. I was there. I remember that i remember this game so well okay so we'll explain who else is crazy to michael thompson information. I'm john ireland another ring. Hey mason ireland show and somebody sent michael book. Let's see paul. Hoover lives in phoenix. Sent me a book. It's a soft cover as a basketball book says airballs bricks and swishes now jewish park. When's the last time you read a book. Jaws nineteen seventy five all right now last book i read. I'm not people think what an idiot no. I'm a bit i'm a i'm a voracious reader. I just like to read current events and like to read science novels about astronomy and science things like that but i'm not like people like they write books fictional or non fictional. I can't do that. I'm not a book reader never have been what about you. Are you. The big book reader love him last book you read. When is the last book. I used to head so he's no no no. I'm i will get in trouble if i if y'all get in trouble if i tell you i'll tell you off the life story of half no. I don't know i mean it was just talking about it the breath we can read it. We just can't talk about okay. <hes> books already yeah jesse. Am i in it. Yeah i am yeah who what did. He has an office as well. I'll tell you was complimentary. Yeah yeah of course the okay so so michael kintu people who are having an argument both be right. Here's something kobe said had. We played part of this interview yesterday. Here's something kobe said when he was asked about shack sit down interview. Just listen. Tell me if kobe's right who would shack if he had your work ethic he'd be the greatest of all time if shack had your worth beauty grace of all time by four. He'd be the first to tell you that for sure. I mean this guy. I was a force. I have never seen me. It was crazy guy. That's generally guys at that size or a little. Tim ed ed and they don't wanna be tall. They don't want to be big. Man is dude was he did not care. He was a mean nasty st competitive. He was vindictive me. He was yeah. I wish he was in jail would have twelve rings the first year we were playing. You can't post enough but they can't follow him so he kept going so ah throw the ball out to me. I'm not throwing so. I kept shooting them right so we're getting time out. He's like hey <hes> hey. I'm open my mike okay so we go out and say hey. I'm open come again. You got to boston man that get often rebound. If i miss broke all right so kobe says that it had if shaq had his worth worth ethic he would have been the greatest one of you've not the greatest player of all time is kobe right. Yeah i think so we've said this and i said this to myself <hes> shack with very playful or are you still very successful one four rings rings and he didn't want to put in a work in the off season the kobe <hes> obviously did shock came into the league weighing about three five. You remember his name an orlando. You look at those videos. You look skinny yeah now imagine if he could stay around that way. Not everybody puts on weight. Naturally issue body matures but a shack with a plate of three fifteen kobe's right he would have had at least eight wings okay so shock heard that what i just played and on instagram shack wrote about kobe you would have had twelve rings. If you pass the ball more especially in the finals against the distant. He's right about stag's fact so they're both right yeah. He's right about that. Pistons series. I was there courtside calling the game with joel meyers and <hes> shack in. I'll never forget this because i could add another ring wing. <hes> game three we were down to one harry's beside one and it was two three two format and go back to the detroit talk making four-game threat game. It was game four okay and we went down to two one in series so this game four. The lakers came on in the first half and shack was on a mission. I'm i'll never forget as you know you remember ben wallace ben williams was an excellent defensive like he was made out of bricks. Write him an rasheed wallace wallace boys for detroit. Both of those guys were helpless and i'd never seen a guy that big and strongly ben wallace be so helpless against an opponent shack was destroying them both they basically we're getting out of his way in that first half shack twenty-nine garden could not guard and could not stop offshot came out with the motivation incentive. I'm gonna win this game by myself if i have to. He was planning that in the first half so i think when liquor in good shape we're gonna win this game and go back to <hes> <hes> l._a. No matter what happens in game three or game five with the whole point advantage because the final two games will be in in l. a. a winning game four with a guaranteed the serious goes back to l._a. For game six and seven seventy four leaguers who who definitely on a chance to win six or seven anyway so the third quarter starts shackles just destroy he's in that kind of a mood. I want to dominate tonight and kobe came on the third quarter ireland and did not pass the ball. Shack wants came down a floor. Every time tried to win and try to win it by himself and this is tai schon. Prince was on him aleph again. There's stay sean. Principles on him and kobe could not make shot and not there. I think he might have shot twelve times. As many one for twelve and shack was basically begging for the ball and coby would not pass it to them. I was going crazy as arranger. I couldn't say it on the air but i send my so why don't get the ball a shack. He's a s- feels like dominating tonight but they will not pass the ball anyways way kobe shooting eight four twenty five five. We ended up losing a game. That basically series done for those of you. Thinking kobe have rekindled an old feud. Hold on kobe kobe. A couple of hours ago tweeted this. There is no beef with shack. I know most media wanna see it but ain't gonna happen ain't nothing you bet love there and were too old to beef anyway hatch tang three so i think they're having fun with a couple of brothers. Always you know fighting amongst themselves but deep down. They really love and have respect for each other. U._s._c. opens the football season saturday at the call seeming fresno state but something happened yesterday then then i wanna get your opinion on with one of u._s._c. scholarship players. I'll tell you this story next e._s._p._n. Mason in ireland show michael thompson in for mesa. It's hard knocks was last night yeah. The coach joins us in thirty minutes and in one hour from now buster olney joins. I'm just michael u._s._c. opens at the coliseum saturday night against fresno state. Now fresno state was good last year. I think they finished ranked nine thousand nine hundred country <hes> but the trojans are thirteen and a half point favorite with the bulldogs coming in here saturday night but yesterday u._s._c. see richard sophomore quarterback jack sears decided to leave the trojans and go into the transfer portal sear started one can he went to sam darnold high school seeing clementi and started a game last year when a g._t. Daniels was hurt and he was very good. He was twenty of twenty eight through for almost four hundred yards. He they lost that game thirty thirty five but sears played well. There was a quarterback competition this spring daniels beat sears out so sears has decided he has he was richard sophomore this year so he goes into the transfer reporter who have two more years to go play somewhere else if you were sears if you were one of his parents. Would you support decision since he's a quarterback. Only one quarterback can in play road you tell him he's technically because he's a richard sophomore already graduated from u._s._c. he he redshirt sophomore piled up enough you house where he's these kids yet he he may he may have a couple of courses left but he's basically done with his degree so wherever he goes he just going to be able to concentrate on football <hes>. Would you have told him to stick it out with u._s._c. or since daniels is also a sophomore get while he's why he's gotta go if your quarterback. He got a running back. We see any other position. You're gonna share time so you're gonna play but the only way he's gonna play us if daniels gets hurt or distinct it up against but no this is my son i tell him if you're not gonna play not gonna start then go someplace where you think you can win in a starting spot might be not to be as higher profile program as u._s._c. If you gotta go to a fresno state or utah state or something like that <hes> less a program if you have to but you want to start arching. You don't wanna waste your career the way aaron corp did remember when he came to the u._s. I'll never understand that <hes>. Let's see orange right yeah he. He's out of orange excellent excellent n._f._l. College prospect one of top in the country and he's in the state <hes> at the time they had mark sanchez was finishing up basically and then the matt yeah parking that was coming in who was everybody's all american heisman trophy favourite as an freshman coming in and for some reason erin cough still assigned to come here when it was clear that that <hes> s._e._c. added martin matt bark is going to be a new quarterback. I always thought why go to u._c._l._a. Incorporate a starter over there as a freshman right so that's the way i always think of these young blue-chip quarterbacks why why go somewhere place if you knocked on everyone believes they can go someplace going into a program. I'm going to beat that guy to start a once. You get there and you realize he's the same class as me and he's going to be golden. Boy i gotta go and play someplace else in the transfer portal is not without risk once you once you enter into the transfer portal u._s._c. than gives your for scholarship to someone else and you waiting and looking around correct and if you don't get one i guess if you're that good you gotta get one site. Thank some other school like i say most scholarships or spoken for. They've got to figure out drew. You know they got to figure out somebody's got to bring him in for next year yeah and and he goes in into into this report on sees what happens. I agree with you. I if it were me i don't wanna go someplace and since baseball cap yeah. I want an opportunity unity play even if it's a smaller school think especially exactly especially when you think you've got n._f._l. Caliber talent and so you gotta go play so who it was out of. The quarterback matt cassel another problem. He just sat on the end of the bench and he got to the n._f._l. And carved out a career but for the most career was just sitting there watching yeah and i. I think you only have one college career. If you're going to go and just sit the whole day coaches try and spin it well they should they should stick with their commitment and try and beat the guy out coaches who stick with their commitment. Take the next best job yeah. That's what i was just going to say. I i liked to transfer. It wasn't there when you were there. If you were at minnesota <hes> and you wanted to leave they would have made you pay for it with a year of eligibility. Gotta sit out but now that's no longer if you if you transfer you can play right away. No matter what on was if he i think he in the case of sears he's going to have to wait and play next year but jalen hurts played last year for alabama who went into the trance reportable and that he's the starting quarterback this year for oklahoma. Which i approve of russell wilson did that was at n._c. State and he left to go to wisconsin. <hes> and i'm i'm in favor of it coaches to it all the time. Actually why shouldn't players exactly should not sit. I should be able to transfer and play right away college. Weren't you michael well. <hes> yesterday you had in fasttrack had the question over why carli lloyd is not taking up her offered. Yes kicker vicar tonight to make tomorrow to learn how to make history the aesthetical place on stupid useless friendly game against portugal that means nothing whatever's a preseason exhibition one local n._f._l. Player has suggested that if carli lloyd takes up the n._f._l. On their offered that she will get trampled old. We'll tell you who it is next michael thompson information. I'm john ireland e._s._p._n. L._a. top of the hour or <hes> the coach the raiders joins us the day after hard knocks and less than an hour from now buster only joins us to talk a little baseball baseball michael. Yesterday we talked about carli lloyd from the u._s. Women's national team she went to eagles practice eagles and ravens practicing together so i'm not sure who invited the eagles or the ravens but it was in philadelphia and she kicked a forty yard field goal like it was nothing so they backed her up to fifty five and she she made that one too and on her i try and so a lot of people have suggested if the n._f._l. Or if the x._f._l. Were smart they would put her in a football uniform letter. Kick that would draw attention to the games in the sport. Joe would lead sportscenter and you had the story yesterday that her agent says an n._f._l. Lt offered deliver kick tomorrow night in the last night of the preseason and she turned it down because she has a soccer game a friendly a but keenan allen the chargers wide receiver heard this and here's what keenan allen tweeted carli lloyd kicking sound sweet till somebody blocks the kick and all of a sudden she's on defense would be like the stampede seen the lion king moving. She got a boot. Though is he right michael it. Would this be dangerous for cartilage no because she would they gonna feel. Understanding on on a team is on stand. Let's say a play does breakdown cat gets blocked or she kicks off <hes>. Let's kick ass block. She's not expected to go. Try to make a tackle. She'll just get out of the way and i don't think any guy would head hunt for anyway because that would look horrible doubled trying to put a block on a woman. She's the only one hundred forty pounds five foot seven or eight or something like that so <hes> she's a strong soccer player for woman but compared to a man she wouldn't be in danger because no guy number one is going to try to hit her and the number two. She's not going to go. Try to make a tackle at some guy does get the ball and starts run the other way. You sure she's pretty competitive. She's a world in class athlete. Non stop being so she understands. She is a woman and there's some football player picks up the ball. She knows she can't go. Try to tackle some guy on the football field ireland really who he thinks he's trying to tackle garo. Your premium really gary framing was five five and one hundred thirty pounds smaller than cars. She's not. She's a smart lady she she she knows physical physical limits. He knows no woman can try to tackle some guy a football field. That's ridiculous now. She says she's not going to do it tomorrow night. Why not she should have done it. It would have been a jury might do it next year. We'll see a social being invited. Someone few i think she wants to practice greg. Do you think it'd be dangerous for karl lloyd to kick an n._f._l. Game look. I think it could be dangerous and yes if she got hit. It would be pepper michael. What what are you saying right now. That's ridiculous. It has nothing to do with her being a woman or man or whatever if she ends up going after somebody and trying to make a tackle tackle then that's fine serious now wait a minute why the guy i don't want. I don't want to be so p._c.'s not hi one hundred and forty pounds how she tackles some guy to twenty when if it's corner what if it's name coleman. How much does he weigh. Look it up grace kelly i mean yes. I know he's like one eighty designing. She would have pads yes. She would have have pads on and she if that's after buddy and try like that's that's up to her with small quarterback five ten two hundred come on you think she got ah nicole bobek communist one hundred eighty pounds so much five eight one eighty eight point five seven one fifty one forty okay. Whoa okay becoming wants to comment on. This is going to get straight call about last night. I mean ah i don't think that's a good obviously smack design. Search boy on put won't be able to catch warfare houses and bronx not known a bit she would be in between him and the other goal line. Kicks gets blocked asks. You've seen a run. She's not as fast as him. No thank you by kel. He's she's standing in the backfield and how she gonna catch him no chasing him. Wait a minute. You know what what if she's in. What would you say she's gonna run down a quarterback who she's in between coleman and the goal line once you can. He's gone come on man. What's wrong with you people. I think you're underestimating the athleticism of reason a women's soccer player n._f._l. Player john. I don't know you sitting over there telling me that she's almost equal playing field with these guys. Have you been to an n._f._l. Game but you watch them on t._v. If you and i were on that soccer field she'd runs circles around us. Look look at us much better than all of us but yeah you're also underestimating the athletic abilities of females. You don't know what she can to michael. Are you one of those fear. Are you like john mcenroe. Do you believe that <hes> serena couldn't take a game off off man on tour of the hundred rank man. Let me see how all i can put this really yours. Mcenroe love and love what is wrong with you. You've been to a live tennis match lot. Have you seen a man for the women's pace and speed and they play with but i have you seen some okay. Serena is the right reverend maybe she she does serve well. Maybe she couldn't hit four perfect cerceau a._c. So yeah yeah. I guess that part is possible. Yes that can happen. I you're probably right but i wouldn't wait a minute. You can't just write off okay. Let's put put it this way. So would you like to do it or not. You can see the difference in the speed of a man soccer game compared to a women's what is wrong with you right but but how how she spent aspect one with an n._f._l. Quarterback and safety are you was eighteen and alan is saying is if there is a blocked field sadly a stampede heat starts going the other way and she could get caught up. I don't think that guy's gonna hit her. That's number one day. They'll know it's hard. I'm not gonna hit hurt. I don't have to 'cause. She's gonna catch the guy anyway. <hes> have no respect for car of course i do. She's a great athlete. She's a great soccer player. Perspective youtube knuckleheads like you guys is level played sports. I don't think that she can make fifty five yard field goal either in an n._f._l. Game it's a two step kick who cares okay no she could. I think she can master that. In fact you gotta get it off. Within two seconds you cannot make a five step runup what she did and that videotape learn look at the video again. It's basically a kickoff field goal. Why can't the time to take five steps tapa why she didn't go into detail she could have gone. Thirty yards steps a thirty five yard. She's gonna do that. Yes so for fifty five yards. Two steps are strong leg. They don't call them. Greg the leg for nothing of her lakes pretty strong to the his the. I think she could master the two step fifty yarder but no the other about you. Don't know about yeah. I don't know what be because think about it. You sound you china sound chauvinistic in the senate's. 'cause that's a physical differences between a man and a woman with a council of physical contact ireland. Do you think women can speed you think women should be boss level in combat in the military or no big issue shoot as good as me better yeah of course yeah so. I think it's all relative if you could. I think keenan allen actually as is a point that you know it's not the job of the linemen to identify if the person they're hitting is obvious that i mean look she. She doesn't even though she's coming. They're not gonna hit her and if you think that there's gonna be some athlete that just going to be a football players like i'm going to show up with her. In you know i ninety all really undefined seem to hit a woman might come on n._b._a. Because it's a team sport like there's a lot of guys in the n._b._a. B._a. Who can't score like we talked about. Ben wallace earlier benoit's at no offensive game not really know so. Could elena delle don if you if you put her on the wing and player with somebody like lebron who's gonna get double team. She can hold her own for five ten minutes right. Shouldn't you know basically put her in the wing and shoot yes. He can do that yeah but when a guy get went andre ebola or get up on it and then what but then she asked kganaka's passes she knocked out a ton of open shots of course they can do that but somebody else would have to be on the on the other team. That had no offensive. You could put her on c._e._o. Get out there in a preseason game. Let she six six yeah so she put the wing but she couldn't get around defender. Though that's not saying that she could get knocked out shot of kyle she can do that. Yeah yeah all right. Did you see hard knocks last night. I yeah i saw this greens usual. <hes> okay so <hes> the coach joins us coming up and buster only at one thirty michael information. I'm john ireland e._s._p._n. L._a.

Mason and Ireland HR 2: Guests Heavy

"Seventeen ESPN Mason island. What has gone on Tuesday next Thursday? Of course is the NFL draft get started? Everybody's excited about that. That's a great diversion for everybody. A lot of off season movement in the NFL is the NFL off. Season of free agency has gone. Pretty much. Eschede actually I think completely scheduled and we're going to talk to Bob Bradley a little bit later in the show but Adam schefter just checked in and we don't WanNa miss out on the opportunity to have Adam on the show Adam. Thanks very much for dot. How are you man? Hope you guys are willing. Shaef you to Adam and it's obviously going to be a draft like you've never covered before because of all the different moving parts. Let me start with this. The the teams can't cold in-person workouts. They're doing everything on Zoom. In your opinion how critical are those workouts in the process? How much of limitation does this put on teams that they can't meet in person and hold individual workouts? Is that a big deal or little deal in your opinion. Think it's a big deal. I don't think it's a big deal only because everybody's in the same situation so the rams and chargers can have their workouts with guys. Guess what the Raiders? Can't that she's can't nobody can show it places more of a priority and more importance on your scouting department and make sure that they did the work during the season. Scouted Games talk to coaches did their research in their working if they did what they were supposed to do on the year. I don't think it's a problem. Have they counted for the fact that what they would do if there was a technical difficulty for a team and they were not able to pick on time? Right listen I I know that there are these doomsday scenarios and whatnot. But the fact of the matter is there are various team officials various communications to the NFL. So if the GM's Internet went down he'd be on the phone with the coach and the culture turning the take or the operations guys. So it's not going to be like that it's not gonNA. I don't believe that the graph you go off with hiccups like all its pause. It like auto draft when you're doing a fancy draft hold on what's on this guy. We can't find this guy in the It's not going to be like that. We're talking to the Great Adam. Schefter Adam to vote is obviously somebody that everybody's talking about some people we've talked to you and then we've had on the show. Say He's a can't miss prospect that he's the best technical passer since Andrew Luck other guys say wouldn't touch him because of the injuries right. We'll GIG give us your feeling on a first of all would you take to based on you know and more importantly are more teams pro or anti too. I mean the the those are hard questions and they're not just simple answers. Would I take what I take to the first pick? No what I take to with the third pick after some maybe him. Who's my quarterback? I take two so you can't just answer the question just in a vacuum like that it. Just it's not that simple Do I try get him do I take him. Can I take them where I am? Has My team on a super bowl. Is it not WANNA Super Bowl? Have Success how porn is to take it like. There's so many questions so he would I take him? I like him. I mean I think is a really exciting prospect. I do think there's some medical concern amongst the teams I've spoken to How real that is originally. I I don't know but you know that that that's that's the deal and so again you just can't answer. That question is simple. Simple statement Marantz fan and season ticket holder and they've really jettisoned some talent this year. They cut todd Gurley. They traded brandin cooks. They let greg go but they've they have made moves. What do you think of what they're doing? And what is their priority? Do you think in the draft but I think the recalibrating a little bit. They've had to make some moves that they feel like are in court for their team. I I think that's they've a lot of holes. There's a lot of ways that they could go in this draft. I think that they still can use some pass rush L. They could use some secondary help. always use offensive line. Help With some of the veterans they have their Probably use another running back at some point in time in other wide receiver wouldn't hurt. I mean there's a lot of ways they can go right right and I think that you can't tell what they are yet. That division is obviously loaded. San Francisco's coming back fully stocked. Seattle looks like they're going to be good again and so they will. Do you agree with us? We think that might be the best. Division football with the improvements at Arizona made are we being homers or is it is it. A fair is a fair assessment of the NFL that the NFC West is the best division right now. A division paper. Maybe he wouldn't get much of an argument for me. I think that's GonNa be very competitive. Division I think Arizona is going to be improved San Francisco. Tough Seattle's yeah it's it's a good division The Rams have they worked out for them. But I don't know that this year you know Josh Allen is going to blossom and Sam darnold blossom and and and you know the quarterback. The dolphins draft doesn't take like you just don't know but yeah I think the West the NFC Wessel be tougher than it's been in recent years. Yes from top to bottom. Yes I agree with that. Let's talk a little bit about where the NFL stands in this. In this pandemic there have been plans floated the NFL seems intent on trying to do things trying to keep their calendar. Exactly as it is is there. Is there a scenario by which they do something different? Are they prepared potentially games without fans they can? They can answer that question right now and they don't have to answer that question right now and it would be impossible to answer it. I honestly think from my conversations people. They're really focused right now as crazy as this is on getting to the draft next week because it's such a complex complicated undertaking and. I think once they get through that they have all of me all of June all of July to figure out. Okay can we ever season came through any time? Whatever you push back. Are they going to be fans? And those football questions come off scientific answers. How widespread is testing innovate? Are they gonNA have antibody? Testing or player is going to be quarantined. Can they quarantine them? Do they need to do that? I mean there's a lot scientific questions that come wave before football questions in our society that will influence in dictate how the football season dozen untold. Adam. Schefter is our guest and Adam so here comes the draft next Thursday. You are one of several reporters who speculated whether or not it should actually be happening but now it is. Everybody assumes that they're moving forward. How are you guys at? Espn and we'll be on the air when you're doing it. How do you cover? This obviously is like for example. I'm guessing you're part of it. Are you going to be at home? Is Roger Goodell at home? Is Everybody at home to the bulb. I mean how do you go about covering something in this pandemic where? We've never really done it this way before the answer those questions. Yes I'm at home most of the FBI. My Trey Wingo will be in studio with a select. Few people he actually. I had him on my podcast. This week talked about it at length. What that'll be like for him It'll be a new experience for everybody and it won't change the way we cover very much but I will be home. It will be done virtually We won't be in a raucous energy charge environment that won't be hundreds of thousands of screaming fans. There won't be all the pageantry that comes along with doing the draft whether it's a New York or Philadelphia or Chicago Dallas Nashville. Las Vegas draft has gotten from a fan standpoint bigger and bigger every year in terms of a live event. It probably would have been the biggest. It's been in Vegas and so now. I'm going to be my house like I am everyday and everybody'll be in their house every day and everybody's adjusting. Yeah I don't think you you cover the event any differently. You know you're still tracking where players are going. What teams are doing? Who's rising WHO's trading up. Who's trading back with quarterbacks? You're going all the same questions that we all. WanNa now and so. None of that changes it. It's really probably just a simple function of. It's the only game in town now right. It used to being the draft John and competing with NBA Playoff Games or NHL playoff games or baseball Major League Baseball Games. Well there's no baseball. There's no hockey. There's no basketball. There's no nothing so I would think that people tune into ESPN next Thursday night to watch the draft and we all will be in fact. We'll be on the air live and and carrying your picks they come down. We look forward to watch them with you. Adamant thanks a lot for coming out. We appreciate it. Thanks guys be well stay safe. Thanks for having me Your Adam. Yeah it's going to be. It's going to be unusual because I think it's going to be probably the best ratings. Ever had right I would imagine yeah and somebody I think. Lindsay said it's on ABC Anton Espn Simultaneously. Es ESPN is also simulcasting the NFL on NFL network. That'll be the same feed and ABC as a separate one. Okay got it so. Espn will be simulcasting the NFL network feed and vice versa and channel seven. We'll be doing the the our network coverage got it. Yeah Adam said it's the only show in town by the way didn't he seem annoyed with us for some reason. He weighed with US NO I. He's annoyed that the draft is happening. I wondered even if we should ask them about remember. He was the most outspoken reporter. Not just in in sports but maybe he does not believe that this draft should be going on in the middle of this pandemic he. He just doesn't and he has. He's had an interesting background. I didn't want to open this up and make the story about him. He's married to a nine eleven widow. He's he's been through traumatic events before and I he just he's he's a reporter and a lot of people that agree with the Mace. That that this this draft could have been delayed for a month and wouldn't have made. It would have been just as easy to do this on. They're going to do it on the twenty third right. That's that's the twenty third of April that you could have done it on the twenty third of May just as easily. And why aren't we giving the country a month to deal with this extraordinary issue and doing the draft then but the? Nfl feels like they can respect social distance in and follow the rules and they wanna give us a diversion. So they're going for it and I think that if he sounded short I think he's he's doing interviews because it's his job and he works for. Espn AND WORRYING ESPN station. But he firmly believes that they're making a mistake doing this draft next week by the way I you know I mean. I think it's possible for us to do two things at once. I think it's completely possible for us to have this diversion and have the NFL do what it's going to do while the rest of the country is dealing with issues like this you know. It's I agree that you know we gotta get Bob Bradley in next on. Hold but I agree with you. I think it's I don't have a problem with an happening. All Right Bob. Bradley from L. Afc's coming up next for you. Mason Ireland seven ten. Espn so Adam. Schefter joining us there and we are continuing to keep everything upbeat and enthusiastic and optimism. This is a place for positively Mason Ireland show last year. I get the opportunity to be at L. AFC multiple times including being the honorary falconer. One night it was a great season for L. AFC the black and gold and one. The supporters shield fortunately lost to Seattle in the playoffs but a great season. All in all joining us. Right now is Bob Bradley. Who is the coach of l? Afc Bob thanks for coming on. How are you alright guys was? You're listening to the end of your last part. It's interesting as far as what things they'd be postponed. And what thing. Give us something else to look at and think about Bob. It's it's something that you're dealing with in your sport. You guys had just ramped up to get started. You obviously have one of the favorites in the League and now everything's getting delayed. How are you staying in touch with your players? Are you staying in touch with your players are in your sport? Are these guys able to go out and kick them. I guess you could do social distancing and do some drills. Are they attempting to do that? Or what's the status of soccer in this country right now? Our guys are doing a very good job. And I'd give a real big shoutout to our performance staff Gavin Benja field and Daniel Guzman Tom Joe. Because in order to keep our players engaged really an individual thing as much as anything Dependent upon where someone lives. What kind of space? What equipment they have that that directly says how much they can do some guys have a little space in can still take a ball and get out and do things moving and maybe a little bit of a wall play path is off the wall. Other guys not so lucky. But we're doing everything to keep them going Bob Argue proceeding your job. As usual in other words. Are you still thinking about opponents? Are you still planning for the season when it begins doing the job? I don't know about as usual You know a lot of looking back at at what we did. In Pre Season Games look like Watching other teams. I think do things that we look at to improve ourselves this whole concept of zoom calls. You know I'm on with my staff and we're putting up cliffs and discussing ideas and then you know crying in always with everyone on our staff to stay in postal player Bob. Bradley is our guest for those who you don't know Bob has has one of the most interesting resumes of anyone ever to coach soccer. He's been the national coach for USA for Egypt. He's coached an MLS. He's coached in the Premier League. And so Bob. You've seen soccer all over the world and coached all over the world. It seems to me and I'll get your opinion because you know better than than I would but it seems to me you guys have a very unique fan experience at Bank California Stadium this thirty to fifty two that you've created and the fact. It's almost from what we've been told. It's almost more of an overseas environment with the way that that has come together. Is it going to be tangibly different? If you guys have to play without fans the possibility of returning without fans is real. I know the discussions are going on and when I coached in Egypt and there was a terrible stadium. Massacre we played in a World Cup qualifier in an empty stadium and it was Irian in many ways said But if we do it this time round. It's it's simply because in these unprecedented time. It's a way to bring the game back and I think our fans as much as they want to be there on the inside and as much as much as we need them. I think we can reintroduce the game and feel like it's still away that we're all getting back together even though we're not there so It's not perfect but are really special connection. We have thirty to fifty two and really with the city of Los Angeles throughout this whole pandemic has only gotten stronger. I mean we've got so many members of our fan base that are on the front lines. Doctors Nurses Emergency Care Workers Drivers law enforcement and and right now. They're the heroes and so as much as they show up in a stadium and go nuts for us right now. We're in all what they're doing. Have you been party at all or the organization been party at all to way in which the MLS can potentially restart ways dates? All that kind of stuff. Yes John Thornton's been right in the middle of that and of course with some of our owners I think they're looking at all possibilities and on a national media call earlier today how I felt and I kinda said look. I can't wait to get started. Of course it's gotta be at the right time when it's safe and when that moment comes I don't really care how we get started. I just missed the game right now. I miss our fan. I missed a passion and in the right moment when we get back. It's going to be a strong statement that together we've mourned got through this difficult period and then we can find ways to move on Bob. Bradley is our guest. And I mentioned Bob. You've coached all over the world including in the Premier League which now is kind of caught on over here. I know you're stay over. There was brief and you were at swansea just for a little while but I was wondering as I watch those games on TV. Sometimes and then I watched the AFC games to me. They look similar. Obviously the players are a little more highly paid in the premier league in a little bit different. But it. But I'll ask you what's the be different is it. Simply skill. Level of the players are more to it than that. A there are different factors. You know if you look at the top teams in the Premier League obviously this year Liverpool. Who hadn't won a championship in a long time had put themselves in an unbelievable position to to win the league. The talent level across the board on their roster is still above ours and yes payrolls are higher. The Games in the Premier League Have a very high temple their physical. I think our league continues to move in that direction But we're still we're still growing and and you know we have a young team at L. Afc I think we have guys that are capable of In their careers playing in the premier league. And we're determined that we can continue to evolve as a team and as the league and then hopefully step by step get closer to the top couple of leagues in the world. Not that I want this happen. But did you take Carlos? Villa could play in the premier league. He can for sure so Carlos. A young player was at Arsenal and he showed his talent there but never broke through in in a big way And then he went to Spain real associated but I think everyone that has played with Carlos teammates guys that have been coached them. Everyone recognizes the talent and maybe when he was young as a first move coming out of Mexico maybe wasn't quite ready but I've seen him mature in so many ways but talent why Carlos could play in the Premier League for sure. But thank you for doing this. We know everybody's hold up and we appreciate you making a few minutes for us and most of all. We hope you and your family are staying safe guys. I appreciate it and to you and all your viewers stay a faith wrong and stay healthy. I coach thanks Bob. There is Bob Bradley Head Coach at L. AFC. If you've never been to an AFC game. I'm telling you it is a really unique. La Experience. The stadium is absolutely beautiful. We had Tom Penn on the other day and I was talking about. I had to really crazy experience. It was honestly am not making this up. A career highlight being the falconer. At a game last year it was it was as I was as buzzed and excited. I've been about anything I've done in the last decade doing what I'm doing. The crowd is unbelievable stadiums. Absolutely beautiful the thirty to fifty two. I got to go down and hang out with those guys. They are just crazy. It is just an all round success and by the way that stadium. I went to see Mumford sons last year at that stadium. It is great place for a concert to that. Is it's hard to believe when you're in there that the that the ruins were the sports arena. Used to stand in spot. Yeah it is in in one day. They're gonNA write a book about how you start a franchise and there'll be at least two chapters in there about the AFC and how they nailed it from the get-go really good. I coming up next. We'll take some of your phone calls. Eight seven seven seven ten. Espn and we have a ton of voicemails. Voicemail on the new voicemail line which is five three zero three seven seven six seven five three zero. Espn seven ten.

When was the hacksaw era a lot of our listeners? Don't even know who hacksaw is mid nineties. That's was the voice of the chargers and hosted afternoon drive at the station where we did mornings. He was a crank. Yeah he wants to build a raider fan to put a gun in his mouth and boy's head off why lost her in the parking lot after their show and I'll beat your ass. I think there is some kind of folklore surrounding him. So Oh yeah so he used to Lee would never he he he would never say he's a great guy but he was good but he would never say. I don't know so if you if you asked him a question he would always formulate an answer so one time. Mason dared me to call Lee show right before the draft and he said I he goes. My nephew is too. I want you to call Lee Hamilton. And ask him what he thinks of my nephews. Chances of getting drafted out of Ohio state. Mason's nephew lived in Ohio so I called Lee with my old guy voice and I basically called him in. I said in an ocean shied. I'm a big Fan of Buckeye and I'm wondering what you think. A hundred Jordan Big Lineman. What do you think his chances to go in the first round and on this show? Hangup initiation. I like that kid. Hunter Jordan Hunter Jordan as big. Nfl body.

It's like you yeah it was. It was great. All right such What else in the voicemail? Hey producer Lindy. My Name's Jim Wolf. The reason I'm calling. John said that in college football they use a kicking tee. They haven't used it kicking tees since nineteen eighty nine. Let John Know about it. Oh well okay so the reason I always say that is I think when they kicked the the record in College. Football is either sixty seven sixty nine yards. I think whoever did that used to t- that's what I meant to say. But I didn't know that I read of the along time ago when I was at. Ucla we had an all American kicker again him John Lee and he was so good he got drafted in the first or second round and when he got the NFL he couldn't kick because he couldn't kick off the tee so they got rid of it. But I think the record we were talking about long field goals one day and I think the all time record was kicked off a t. Yeah it was nine thousand nine hundred seventy six it was a sixty nine yard field goal in Abilene Texas and it was kicked by East Texas state. God bless 'em God bless them all right one more. What do you got? Hey Mason Ireland menzies art from Whittier and had a question for you. What's the definition of insanity? Now I know what you're thinking. That's not it.

Depends on the success actually basement club to last game. And then someone's guys let you stay on island it is seen L. Asean say like a big Fan of LLC but honestly you guys a quick question how kind of Coca nineteen rated about some of these you to go like season-ticket older deposits and contracts and all that very good question. It's a very you're in the middle of that. You're Aram season ticket holder. Yeah I already know I had to pay for my personal license because I made that guarantee every year. I've already paid for that but I've already paid for season tickets to and so they've got that money and I think they have that money until they until we find out if they're games or not but they're baseball finance. For example that have season tickets that have already paid for them and there are no games going on and I don't know if the dodgers are refunding that money or not. I don't argue portion of the money. No I don't think they are because I think Steve. Those games have been postponed but not cancelled so until they determine if those games are going to be played I why would they refund the money right so I guess there would be a pro rated disc pro rated refund based on how many games actually get played and they hold the money in the meantime right and if they can find a way to play them all then the Lakers and clippers and other teams? That are missing games all in the same boat. Take about it if a team was GONNA do something. Nice right now. They would refund that money so that people could actually live on it. There are people that are out of work right now and have invested in season tickets and they could really use that money right now if a team or an organization was smart. They would refund that money because so many people are unemployed. And give you the extent I give you the other side of that. Sure I. I can't speak for everybody but I know I talked to my one of my bosses at the Lakers yesterday. And he told me that their number one priority right now is to keep everybody safe and keep everybody employed which I thought was an extraordinary gesture on a the number. One thing that you and I've talked about software. The number one thing I worry about beyond health is the unemployment rate right as long as these teams are taking that money and using it to pay people and keep them employed. I have zero problem with respect with all due respect. These are billionaires who can afford to keep people on the payroll while also refunding their fans. Who are who in. Many cases are out of work and could use that money. Yeah it depends. I mean some some of these people are billionaires. But I mean like are are the Lakers the Lakers are a billion dollar franchise? Million Dollars probably is is the AFC. Billy owned by billionaires. I don't know about L. AFC I my insane. If I was if I was an organization and I was a billionaire. If I'm Mark Cuban for example I would find a way to do both things pay employees. Because I'm worth I don't know Mark Cuban's worth ten billion dollars and refund that money put money in people's pockets so that they actually can live and survive the season ticket holders. Yeah that eventually that money will be refunded but until they cancel the Games. I think they're just moving it around. There's no income. Nobody's making any money so I don't think there's any devious evil going on here but it is a dilemma that all these teams are going to have to solve the football. Like in the case of you. It hasn't come up yet. 'cause I'm bidding games cancelled correct but but in the case of hockey and basketball and MLS. I think those games are all officially postpone right but I mean ultimately there's going to have to be a pro rated refund if they wind up playing you know if they don't play the rest of the season if players say five games at the before they get to the playoffs and by the way the one interesting thing that came up this week was something Bryant Windhorst said on the get up the other day which is he like teams feel like they need twenty five days to get ready to restart the season which means that for example. Let's say it's July one. Well that means you don't go back to work till essentially August one and start playing games. So you've got to build in almost a month cushion from the date. You're clear to go to the date. You actually start playing. Yeah I imagine baseball's the same deal. I think they're going to have to Redo some many version. Actually maybe even more than a mini version of spring training. I was you know one thing that we assume is that guys have the facilities to be able to continue to train they. Don't I mean there are guys that live in apartments that have absolutely no space whatsoever? We saw even in the horse game. Paul Pierce has got an entire court in his backyard with the Celtics logo on it. And Allie I forget what her name is. Ali She wa- She beat Chris. Paul Yeah didn't know horse contest and a horse. She's basically got a driveway and Ricky Rickety basket so so it's it's not fair to expect you know every relief pitcher in major league. Baseball doesn't have a pitching mound at their at their house or at their apartment. So they're gonNA to need to go through spring training. I'm sorry what's what's that girl's name from the Horse Competition. I don't want to shortchange her. She she married while you're looking while you're looking that up. Let's get johnny from La in here. Hey Johnny you're on seven ten years. Pin Oh he's gone. Okay quickly Allie Quigley. Thank you very much. I don't think she missed a shot all night. Hey fetch hit us with one more voice mail before we go to fasttrack okay. Yeah my name is Jason. From Las Vegas longtime worse than their first time caller. I JUST WANNA say may siren. You do a great job So far windy. You've done a great job. I liked to greg a lot. He added a bit of us to maybe the old man show. I'm glad Lindsey does the same Lindsey FARC great job booking guests. Larry King was a huge win by biggest. Gripe I hear Ireland talk about it. More information does as well is grades. They preach his being divided known back in college. I would have went out more and you know not cared about my as and have issues with this any represent something so much bigger there. It's not a mistake that Ireland is the broadcaster for the Lakers. And has this radio show because getting those aides on him Much deeper and bigger saying I am yet to time management and values and How you know how to juggle a social life and the workplace and a school life even just the A and I'm sure you can agree with me with that. I hope you do can give a little more fun anyways. Everyone's doing a great job. There they go call. Cool thanks man. I respectfully disagree with that. I actually agree with him. I agree with him. I think you learn a lesson from getting a I think it. I think it requires work ethic and work ethic is something you learn in school. It's an it's an achievement. It's an accomplishment. Did I spend too much time on grades? Maybe I did I did a lot of other things I did plays at school. I was the president the fraternity all that stuff but I also devoted myself to getting good grades and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. It is an achievement. We probably shouldn't sit here and tell kids not to get good grades. I will tell kids the best tip I ever got. Don't let school interfere with your education. There are millions of ways you can get a college experience my GPA. In High School was three point. Eight my GPA. In College was two point. Eight and was really. Yeah and I make incredibly proud of that that that I did way more in college than just go to class because that's where you learn how to do everything so I did though I did the whole first of all I will say I did. I was president of the life. You were in a fraternity right. I was as president my fraternity as president of the Inter Fraternity Council. I was actually. I came across while cleaning out the garage my plaque for outstanding Greek man for my senior at Bowling Green I and I don't apologize for this but in high school I got one B and in College. I got one B. Yeah the whole time. I was there in college. I took a lot of classes. I swapped for the fence. I took a lot of classes that were really hard particularly when I was a freshman but the one thing I learned is you can bury yourself in the library for sixteen hours a day. Their kids there that do that. One of my buddies was Asian. And he said his mom. I mean this is the thing now. That's pretty common. You know that a B. is an Asian F. Like if he got to be that was to his family. That was an F. You know that that if if he didn't get a straight as a cry boy he was your big trouble Sherwood but I think as long as you get a full college experience into a lot of different things than then you're getting the most out of it but there is nothing wrong with getting as you don't have to apologize for it. No and if you're smart go for it yet. But I wish I would have spent less time studying and more time doing other stuff. Lindsey how is your GPA? Like three point eight at high school and then in college I was around three point l. but I said you were the same as me. Not really because so I went. I went to community college and then by the time I went to Akron. I just took most of my classes online or at like the remote campus so I never got that whole college life experience like I never lived in a dorm and lived on campus. But I lived right. I lived in Berea in the same city that Baldwin walls colleges and I hung out with a lot of friends there so that part of it I guess like I kind of experienced it but like I never lived in a dorm and join the sorority or anything like that. It's a cool experience. It's a cool experience to do the whole fraternity thing i. I made the best friends in my life people. I still talk to and in and hang out with to this day. They come to town. We hang out I made. I made some of my best friends in my college fraternity. All right next for you is five o'clock fasttrack Mason Ireland Seventeen Espn.

It's tails but he can still get the win tails he can't you can't expect the shutout in his major league debut by the way I did win last night. Twenty five hundred bucks I had dodgers is minus run with a late Grand Slam false charge mace according to sports those in Greg and Jay. You'll get a guest here as well according to sports illustrated rated. There's an N._F._l.. Team this year that is quote strong in all the right places quarterback Offensive Line linebacker secondary in coaching anything short short of a super bowl will feel disappointing end quote. They were turned twenty. One of twenty two starters made the playoffs last year are there to pro bowl rookies last season still. I haven't heard anybody picked this team to go to the Super Bowl not one person what what am I talking about Greg. I wonder if anybody gotta get. I want to say the steelers and they only lost Antonio Brown. Okay no J. chargers Rogers. No I think they made the playoffs. How about the Texans No? It's the Indianapolis Cost John so they've got. They've got good players a good G._M.. They get a good coach and they return lock. They Return Twenty one at twenty two starters to pro mobile ricky's. I don't Know Anybody Ping the colts. Do you guys know I think I love believed Andrew Luck for so long. I think Andrew Lock Doc is has a chance to run that team to the Super Bowl. I agree. He's he's hurt. They're not gonNA play at all in the CAF thing. It's nothing if nothing major if he's injured injured at any point in the year they're done yeah. They're done Casey it about most teams if the quarterback goes down there Andrew Luck is on often hurt so yes yes. He does have a history yeah colts interesting fouls check all right as John. Yesterday I was driving home from work and I saw a dog walking near my house without a collar and without an owner okay so what do you think I did I. I think you took the dog in but I'm trying to figure out what you did next. Did you take it to a shelter. Did you take it to your house. I will say you don't have the heart to take it to was shelter because you know it's a kill shelter. He took it home. I I pulled the dog into my car really really nice dog. I knew somebody absolutely loved that dog because he was groomed and everything but no caller <hes> so I went home and one and I tried to figure out what to do we wanted to see if he's micro-chipped and ultimately what we did as we went up to that intersection where I picked up the dog Roman through the street and we waited for somebody to come out screaming for the dog and that so how much time lapse between the time you pick the dog up and brought it back to the intersection about twenty minutes it's good and there was somebody looking for that dog and she could not have been more grateful he had gotten out of the yard. Why no caller I don't know the answer to that and I and not microchip it? By the way ten-year-old dog not micro-chipped his name was Mickey and but but we saved here's my question you know I always stop right. I see a doc do you. What do you do when you see a dog? Just roaming at an intersection or in the street has never happened to me really really yeah and I live in. I live in a development where everybody has a dog right. So what will happen is if I see dark but I've never see their inside the gates right off to worry and I never found a dog. That didn't have a caller yeah no. It's a weird one like I've called a couple of times in the village where I live. I've found a dog I will you know if I see the dog running around. I always have my phone on me right so I'll play with the dog. I'll call the number on the caller and I'll say normally you'll have an answer so last time I did this. I had to call there. Were two numbers and the first number there was no answer. I left a message the second number somebody picked picked up. I said hey this is gonNA sound weird but I'm in Manhattan beach and I'm playing with your dog I think and she was oh my gosh she got out. Where are you described it right? Five minutes later came and got the duck so with you. That's good ingenuity by you and one going back to the intersection. That's a helpful story because I wouldn't know what to do if the dog had no idea at all and it wasn't a stray. I knew somebody loved that dog. A rate was well groomed. Just didn't have a collar <hes> I mean there's a famous story about out. I saw a golden retriever hit by a car bloody one and I waited for that <hes> that owner to get there and they got it. The proper proper medical attention showed up at breakfast and I had blood on me. I was late for breakfast. I had blood on because I was snow because I was saving that dog's life. It would have been such a better story. If you said you would have killed some yeah no it would not have been greg ever run into this. I mean yeah whenever there's a dog happened. In Hawaii lower dogs just kind of run around we would always bring bring it in and see if we can try and find it but when I have dogs I take their caller off when they're inside the handle really yeah. That's a it's a normal thing to take the dog's collar off. They get out well the. I hope that's right you don't expect them to get out especially a ten year old dog. You don't expect it to even try and get out yeah. It was weird. I was glad we were able to facilitate data. Were Union see so this is a ten year old dog and a two year old dog yesterday Fedex Guy Knocks on my door. I opened the door and Reagan the puggle sprints out the door and in past years she'll just run across the street where there's another dog and try and get into into that house and steal the dog's food but I was I had a bag of chips and I went Reagan took a chip and he threw it back in the house. Turns around goes right back always go for the Food Freddie. <hes> prince just texted me said we're going to be dogs in our next life just found one name shadow last week. He was super cool. We called his mom and he got a back rub until she showed yeah always by the way this is a good warning people that are dog owners to put put an I._D.. Tag On your get get your dog house another thing what how would did you know where to look. It's always in the year I I don't know honestly. I don't know where it is. I think most dogs micro-chipped in the ear lobe like like a regular person gets an earring but you can go to a vet and they can trace exactly where that dogs. Are you in that case you if you but how would you have known that. Would you just look for the chip. No you don't need to look at the chip you go to the vet the vet in one no it didn't have a chip. She told us he didn't have a chip but no way okay when she showed right you pick up the dog doc yeah you go back to the house. Yes you look for a chip. You don't find you're not looking for you. Just wonder if the dog is Microsoft got because you don't necessarily see the chips. I'll check attack. The city of San Luis Obispo yes has a solution to all the debate over monuments with troubled legacies okay. Here's their new rule no more monuments to individuals living or dead. The mayor says says this quote. Why would we step into lifting up individual people who are undoubtedly as we all are complex and flawed anyone worthy of a monument mid would not want one in quote so from now on no statues ever right of people in San Luis Obispo? What do you think of this policy? Well first of all you say nobody would want one. I haven't met you. I mean right across the street. We've got monuments to WHO <hes> dodger stadium just announced putting up yeah. No I think there are people that you can safely put monuments up. I think it's I think that what gets lost is context taxed like the context of when someone lived so a good example is the John Wayne Airport where there is a John Wayne Statute right. There's a there's an issue with context there right because there was a an interview where he said some racist stuff and a playboy magazine. I think it's you got to really do your homework on somebody before you put up a monument. Do you know what monuments they took down. No I'd be curious to know which monuments they took down. I think it was a matter of they were thinking about putting one up. I'm not sure of who it was and they voted it down and they just said look. Let's make this easy. No more people yeah I mean it's it's probably safer but I mean there are people that absolutely deserve monuments false track all right. I've got another pet question. A seventy nine year old woman from Ohio was sentenced to jail for feeding stray stray cats. She was the classic Cat Lady Nancy Sigler was sentenced under an ordinance that makes an illegal defeat stray dogs and cats but she doesn't think she should have had to go to jail for helping animals she had been given two citations in the past and the third put her behind bars apparently was three strikes and you're out. Is this a gross gross misuse of our justice system well. We have a house near US where they're probably twenty five cats really yeah. The woman does the same thing feeds all the kids so it's turned into basically a cat ran right and I don't live next door to this house. It's like two or three streets away from you but if I live next door to it it might bug me. There were twenty five cats loitering around a nuisance it sure it is a gross misjustice. Hey I got an idea. Don't don't don't let your cats live outside. The House is a pet. Why do you let it outside? You couldn't do that with dogs. Why do you do with cats? I've never understood why someone has a wild cat hat that just shows up once in a while at your house and if you get up to like twenty or twenty five cats like this one house does I think it does become a problem so I I normally <hes> try and take it easy on law. Enforcement will do it again here. You're going to grow into the slammer. They're just enforcing the rules yeah. I don't know jail seems extreme to me. Nice fine might have been appropriate enter. But how about what would you do. I know what you're feeding stray animals who might not get food otherwise. I am always pro animal even if you if you had a house with thirty cats living next door you'd be okay with it. I I would call a social services at that point. If you're the crazy cat lady women locked up yeah talking out of both sides of your mouth their cat saver all right coming up next more fasttrack Greg Mason and Ireland E._s._p._N.. L._A.. I roll non with fasttrack John It's to you I'll time as half forty nine percent of working Americans would accept a job with no vacation time zero really if they were paid more according to a vacation confidence index survey millennials sixty three percent Gen xers forty seven percent and thirty two percent of baby boomers boomers and men fifty seven percent are the most likely to give up paid time off for higher salaries. The average American who had give up paid vacation nation for a salary increase would require a forty eight percent raise to do so so let's say e._S._p._N.. Gives you that offer. They will give you a fifty percent raise right now right but you get zero vacation time none you just get regular holidays off. Take the deal absolutely not greg. Do you take the deal fifty percent raise but no vacation hot fifty percent raise would make a huge difference for instance Ganic member no vacation but you you get likely years. You get sick days. You get and you get regular holidays Easter Easter you get whatever what else do we do in Labor Day Memorial. Maybe get sick. Okay that's fine. I I rarely take days off so I will absolutely do a whole week off next week's fifty percent raise but no vacation vacation days. I don't think I could do it yeah. I I'll tell you here's the thing if I was an employer. I would not want to offer a job without vacation days because I think people I need it to be good at work but what's interesting about it. Is I once went two years. Without I was working seven days a week I was doing I was a weekend anchor correct cal and I was doing this show so I was working seven days a week and I just didn't go on vacation for a year and a half. I just didn't work out. I was traveling with the Lakers cours summer I was I was just kind of getting my feet wet. I think is right and beginning. We're doing the show Yup and I was fine with it but I was younger now that I'm older I don't I think I would take it. I don't think I would take deal I want I value the time off almost as much as the money yeah. I was even bad at seven days a week when I was working at channel eleven and doing the weekend sports I just it just wasn't as good at my job so I I need time off to be any good at. I think most young people would go for it because they want. They need the money yup everybody north of thirty five you Greg thirty-five yeah. You're right on the window. I think everybody north to thirty. Five or thirty nine went the time off but if you're young and single angled ten years ago. I think you're taking this deal I but you know because you still get six seven days off and the ad you're sick day. She's still get twelve to fifteen days off here. I mean I can work five days a week. That's totally fine. I I'll take the X.. Not Seven employers. Some employers are starting to four day workweeks. The other four day work with finding the people are more productive when they ride as we ran half the Friday's anyways giving me the thumbs down shot on here in the Gulf all the hallway here on Fridays and not anybody showing up on Friday all right despite hinting that he was hanging up the boxing gloves of Rocky Balboa so fester stallone confirmed that he is currently working on a seventh sequel to his are lackey franchise rocky seven won't be a cred- movie <hes> It is a straight movie sequel that sees rocky befriend a young street street fighter who is an illegal immigrant in the U._S.. It has written by starring and will be directed by stallone. He also has another Rambo movie coming in out in September called last blood. He is seventy three years old. He's reviving worlds. It started in one thousand nine hundred seventy six and nineteen eighty two respectively. Do you want to see him back. In these roles or is he comically going to go into the well one too many times as he liked Jason or Friday the thirteenth or Mike Myers I from Halloween I will say this to you. See the two creed movies to create movies are awesome. They're great until he makes a bad movie. I'm okay with it. I've gone back and watched watched. I think all the rocky movies are decent. The originals probably the best one but the creed movies are great. Rambo feels like a little bit of a reach. I feel like a reach to me <hes> but the rocky movies who can blame them people love them and they keep going back to him if he's got more ideas than he thinks he can get them made. You know hard to just get a movie made. Oh Oh yeah why not why not I you know what if he puts out that movie you just described. I'll probably go see it. <hes> by the way last blood I think should be called very the last one very last. No you're seventy three years old. You're still working in the business. You're active tell you what very underrated was a movie called Rocky Balboa which technically would have been rocky six he did some acting in that. I think is rocky as stallone has gotten older. He's he's become a better actor still not sold on last blood. I'm not buying that. One is a little bit of a reach Greg. Would you go to rocky movie came out yeah. Absolutely I secrete to yet but I do want to S- fantastic anything rocky is always the first grade but it's still great okay last one for me. This is is kind of a version of the UBER facts game but it's a little bit different mason. This will make perfect sense to you because you lived in New York <hes> in New York one of the most popular tabloid features is page six gossip gossip column in the New York Post.

You're here for the veteran show. You're a veteran from the marines and <hes> you are next up here fasttrack Friday. Hey Christian by the way do you looking back on that Tattoo. Most people would say you know you either would be glad you did it or regret. In which are you. Oh I love it. I was telling friends and family that at the very least it's an experience I got to meet you as I is Greg was saying a minute ago. This is the third time I've come for one tattoo. I too and do people still react to it. Oh Yeah I've had a couple of years ago the text yeah yeah. We love that story yeah matter when Mason Jason got a tattoo my wife when said Oh he's getting one. I've always wanted to get one. I'll go with them. I she got a very small tiny one. I got a much larger one. It hurt like Hell Lisa. Lisa got like a little butterfly dragonfly Christian. Do you have other issues besides the Mason in Ireland and I actually don't even plan on getting. I'm not a big tattoo person anyway so it was a real real big risk for me when you guys had I set it up but took me Leone because an hour and I was like I'm doing it because when you're in the marines a lot of guys have tattoos marines right no they're starting to hampers donaldson together to to be an officer just all around they don't. They don't want to see that the military altogether wow okay. We're GONNA pass. This long. Hundred Review has just been put on the D._l.. Our I l. with a neck neck soreness Dylan Floro optioned destined may called up to pitch tonight in Tony Allen has been recalled. I wonder if gone sailing even went back to Oklahoma. You know he pitched what was a great three days ago. Yeah switched from Colorado says yes I think he went from Colorado to Oklahoma and now you came back. Well interesting all right so Christian floors is here. He's got fast track for the next segment Christian Russian. What are you get all right so looking at the three major leagues? If you could be commissioner of any of the league's I like seeing whenever leagues go through rule changes. I know that they're are implementing <hes> one. We saw yesterday where they did the challenge on the P._I.. If you could be in commissioner of any of these leagues what rules would you change a couple one for each league all too for the N._B._A.. But one for each league and you let me know if you guys thinking my ideas and you let me know what rules what are you. What are your ideas so for the rule right now? It's if if there's a pass interference it's balls place at the spot of the foul. I don't like that. I think it should go to what the college has at fifteen yards maximum. That's what do you guys think about that. I think is just to egregious of the penalty for for one time completely disagree with you and here's why let's say brandin cooks beat somebody on an out route and then guys just beat he'll just run to brandin cooks and tackle him because it's better than giving up a sixty yard play if he knows he's only going to get punished fifteen yards mace. I hate that idea. I like the pro rule better than ecology. Do like the pro rule better. It turns games around it changes. The fortunes of team really fast asked by the way I think the the review on pass interference is going to be a disaster. I agree. I agree glasses. I watched it and I went. Oh God they're going to you know what. What do you have to lose? If you're a coach if you you know they'll throw it's just going to slow the game down. So that's the first rule change I disagree agree with okay okay <hes> so for Major League Baseball for shifts <hes> right now. You can have extreme shifts if you want. I've heard thrown around where you can't allow the second baseman or the shortstop to go over second base. What are your thoughts? One hundred percent agreed these heavy shifts. I think are screwing up the game. Here's what I want to uh-huh Christian why when a like if the shortstop and sometimes even the third baseman moved to the right side of second base so they're just loading the shift heavy for a left handed batter. Why don't these guys learn how to just pop a bunch or hit a slow ground or down to third? It's an automatic kick. You know I think it even it comes down to like the little league stuff were on the lower levels. There coaching is probably changed to where there it's not. It's not necessarily a good excuse but there are things that even kind of trickled out by the way to to answer your question. I agree with Mason. I like that real. You're for it to against Jeff and by the way increasingly you are seeing guys. Pizza shift cody bellinger has become really really good at at beating the shift now that way Greg You watch a lot of baseball. Why don't players just hit away from the shift of I mean because it's hard to it's not even buntings a very very difficult skill to learn most guys? Don't learn it at all because it's it's technically an out. You're giving it away lake yeah but it just seems to me that if it's a it's a zero zero count and I'm at the plate and the whole defense is on the right side. I the first strike I see I'm just putting towards third and hope I can do it and you put it accidentally right in front of the catcher throws you out could be easy out. It's a very difficult skill to do okay so for the N._B._A.. I just think generally they have too many timeouts and I think I different times in the game. It throws me off and it. It's not as entertaining as a watcher do you. I think they should limit how make it less timeouts that a coach one hundred percent. I think they should cut the number of time outs. It is already have right yeah. How many is it not well? They you can only use. I think now the originally they used to have seven. I think they've cut it back to six and now you can only use thirty seconds. They've addressed this rule Christian not as much as they should but I would be in favor of limiting teams to two timeouts in the final three minutes. I mean the last two minutes take twenty ninety minutes. Which I think is a mistake for the league I think I think you want that to be faster? You wanted to be more dramatic. <hes> you wanted to to have some tension in some drama drama. I'm in favor of finding a way to make those last. Two minutes lasts less than twenty minute right so I asked Mason this yesterday Christian. What would you think about what what they tried to W._n._B._A.? all-star game on Sunday you can substitute like they do in hockey in other words if you and I are in the same team and you're coming in for me. All we have to do is tag. Each other in your in the clock doesn't have to stop Oh man the game. That's what makes the N._B._A.. Better than the other two leagues it's faster and so that would make it. What even I told me yesterday I would put that rule role in the G. League this year and see if it works I would wanna see what teams would build their teams in terms of depth because then it would promote that even more so moment amount of honesty here one thing? All three of us have to admit though is one thing timeouts are for is to get commercials in A._B.. Don't because the sponsors pay tons of money to get get in there so you'd have to find a way to get the commercials but I would argue. We all just watch the women's World Cup. They don't take breaks. They just shrink the screen and put that on doing a better job of this of just shrinking the screen and running the ad alongside the image. I think that's the way to do it well. I think that you nail it perfectly so yeah. They should do just that yeah. I hope hopefully yeah they'll train the G. League this year. Okay okay so I have so. I'm flying to Baltimore tonight. Actually I'm going on vacation. I'm I'm just flying it landing into Baltimore. Maybe think of the show the wire and then you guys like it so I have a couple of factor fiction really about the show so you let me know okay good. If it's factor fiction the original original setting was actually supposed to be in Flint Michigan which is also rampant with crime and local political corruption fact or fiction. I'm GONNA go fiction. David Simon is from Baltimore. Yeah Maverick. Davis Island was a crime writer at the Baltimore Sun so I think it was always supposed to be set in Baltimore. I'm going fiction yeah. You guys sniff out one. We we know a lot about I I imagining as you get all of this all right so the wire actually never want a single emmy. I think that's fact I think that is a fact. I don't ever remember winning an Emmy. It is a fact is how boy you look back now on all those performances I know yeah wow wow that's amazing right next. One only one cop on the entire show. All five seasons fired their weapon. That's interesting I. I'm trying to think of guys McNulty bunk herk carver. I'm going to say that's fiction. I think that's a fact and it's a fact yeah. It was press yeah right. Yeah got in trouble because he was a quick trigger. That's crazy to think about only one weapon fire any tons of trouble for it yeah right all right so the producers David Simon like you said had to beg H._B._O.. To keep the show on the air after both seasons three and four each season I think that's a fact I think he didn't get critical acclaim claim until after it was off the air I'll fiction. It's a fact wow how many more years I got three more okay so down to remains okay yeah all right cool so one of the producers Ed Burns alongside David Simon received heavy criticism for not having any personal or novels. We'll At the time told him don't worry the show's only gonNA last one season. I I'm up to I'll go first. That sounds like a fact. I think it's I'm going fact well. Then I have no choice trailing I will go fiction. It's a fact you actually should have gone back your lessons for two and a half three all right was a tactical error on your last one both characters Omar and bubbles are based on real people. I know bubbles it is I don't know about Omar. Omar was the best character great Michael Williams is actor. Yes you guys under the unique thing about Omar for all five seasons. What's the unique thing never said a cuss word? Oh why character who never cost I would have never guessed that I'm GonNa Guess Yes. That's true yeah. I'm GonNa say the fact is well. That was my last one for facts. No there were to make fifty fifty Germany more questions. Have you done done okay. Thank you question for tonight at ten thirty. Do you have to Zag.

It's fast track Friday and Georgia here and and Andy it's also purgatory <hes> one of you guys who who's got a quest all right so I'll start since the one of the big stories today in sports. Is that the Christmas Day schedule schedule has been released. Celtics Raptors Bucks Sixers Pelicans Nuggets Clippers Lakers rockets warriors are the games the five games. What is your your greatest N._B._A.? Christmas Day Memory <hes> mine is the year that the cavs played the Lakers. My Mom and dad were actually here for it and for some reason I remember fans throwing something onto the court. Do you remember home fingers fitness. Yeah that was probably my most memorable Christmas. I think we lost that game. The Lakers do not have a winning record on Christmas Day since staple center opened that being a particularly ugly loss actually with the foam fingers John you probably but you've been waiting so this is easy for me. Yeah the year injured. You're probably living there the year the Lakers traded Shack Tamiami. Their first meeting was on Christmas Day in staple center. Kobe scored forty two points but the heat won on the game right and it was I. I was blown away. How loudly shack was booed here? Was this guy who was just hailed failed in L. A.. He opened staple center. He brought him three straight titles. As soon as sable center opened and then he got traded away in two months later when he gets introduced the and I was watching to see how Shaq and Kobe would greet each other and it was they both watch each other than they slapped hands but did never looked each other in the eye Kobe he played great but to Wayne Wade played great and the and the heat won the game and I thought to myself that day I said wow if shack and wade get their act together the heater going to win the title and they did but that was that's it for me that day. That's actually the game for me too. I was I was at that game. The only thing is I don't remember shack shack getting booed like the way I actually remember it. Neither is shock actually got a fair amount of cheers in his introduction because that's back when everyone was still blaming Kobe for the whole thing being broken up. That's at least how I remember. Maybe I'm remembering wrong because it was a long time ago. I remember shack actually getting a lot of cheers and I eating like I've just had never heard check that could Putin staples center at all so any booze I was. I was surprised so mine is also heat Lakers game. It was I wanNa say Twenty twelve when Wade Lebron Bosch came here and they were the the back like five of them was like literally a dunk on my second year or calling the Games on the radio the Lebron Weight and Bosch. We're just doing everything the backward crazy alley oops and it was just an insane game from that perspective because they just like athletically were so much. It's better that day than anyone you're listening to Caspian. Los Angeles check all right. I've got a game in honor of Hobson shop coming out tha that's the movie Hobbs Sean Mason Movie Night Monday night at the movie and I'm proud of what is wrong with you start Tokyo drift. It's ooh skip Tokyo if you're GONNA skip one. It's such an awesome franchise it is it's fantastic so I've got a game with some trivia <hes> involving Jason State them or Dwayne Johnson you tell me whether the question is about Jason Statham Dwayne Johnson both both or neither and now here's the thing if it's a neither who the trivia is actually about is a different member of the fast and furious okay so it's Jason Awesome. It's stadium the rock the rock both or neither Youk select neither and can pick which member of the franchise it. Is You get a bonus point. Okay Okay and Gregor Ewan sure okay. I can't see Jay's now he's okay. I ran away this actor at one point early in his life competed repeated as a high level diver and actually harbored some Olympic hopes George. We did see yesterday oh I oh thanks for listening. Say it again high level diver was it. Stay Tham the rock both or neither. I'm GONNA say stay them. Yeah it is State Route Ninety three world champion yeah hopefully these aren't all in this actor briefly lived with his family New Zealand before returning to his country of birth John. You can go stay some the rock both or neither I'm going to say it's the rock say go go ahead Greg. I'm going to say neither but I don't know who that is. I'M GONNA say neither and I'll take a shot Paul Walker. I'm going to say neither even though the Rock did travel because his dad was also a wrestler but I'm going to say either John Ireland the only one who directly dwayne Johnson briefly lived in New Zealand now because of his father Eh this actor had some success as a child actor going back so far include a pampers commercial greg you can go for <hes>. I'M GONNA say neither and that's Paul Walker. I'M GONNA say neither and it's Michelle Rodriguez news going George George off. I'm going to say neither and I don't know who the hell I don't know man Pampers Commercial Ricky Schroder. I don't know what he has to be. Somebody in the stone is a few who's never seen one of the movies I've ever seen it Schroeder Hang Bergman scatter right shockingly. It's not Ricky Schroder John and Greg Bonus as well but the double bonus it is in fact Paul Walker okay so John and Gregor out ahead of this one this actor before getting on the straight narrow spent some time on the wrong side of the law and has some criminal acts in their past mace. You can go first. I'll say neither in Vin diesel go the same. It's Stadium Stadium. You're all wrong. It's both wow we had some issues. There Pass Jason Jason Statement at one point was a con artist sold fake jewelry and perfume and the rock as a kid. A teenager had multiple arrests were fighting theft and check fraud fraud. Wow this actor was discovered out of nowhere by talent agent and got some modeling work for the likes of Levi's French connection and Tommy Hilfiger. We haven't had a neither yet. I'm going neither again. We had one who was for Paul Walker. I think it's neither in its Paul Walker. That's yeah that's just going go at the Rock and I'M GONNA go with State Them Mace. The only one correct Mason Jason Stadium early in his career had some modeling work because because of this actors mother of has some Brazilian heritage the actor spent a few years living among other places in Rio where they became fluent in Portuguese John. I'll say the rock yeah. I'm GonNa go with the Rock. I'll go with the rock. I'll go neither and try this one for Vin Hindi so you've gotta half right it is neither the answer is Jordana Brewster. Jordana brewster mother was Brazilian swimsuit. Wow okay this His father yeah yeah I was GONNA say him so I'm going to go him. Go Look Greg. Oh I I'm GONNA say neither Michelle. Shell Rodriguez listening. Do we just moved to New Zealand for his father. Oh yeah that's right yeah. Yeah whatever okay it doesn't matter to go into that said neither Michelle Rodriguez. I'll go neither tyrese Gibson neither VIN diesel. Neither and I don't know so Donald Oh gets the double back. He's never seen a never met his biological father this actor multiple MTV movie awards for best fight and best action sequence but has never won. I'm going to say both I'm going to say just the rock. I'll say just state anthem. Just the Rock Greg Mason get this one correct. It is just the rock okay so stay them as won. The award is what you're saying stay. Have you ever been dominant this travesty. It is a travesty. I think someone should look into that immediately. Couple more of these. This actor has nominated for stunt segment to get their own Oscar Category Mace you can start. I'm going to say that stadium. Yeah go state them. I'll go both stadium everybody but John gets that correct. It is Jason Stadium and then the last one this this actor has every punch kick and Headbutt etc that they absorb <hes> counted over the course of these movies <hes> as well as every punch kick had but etc that they throw counted to make sure that they always dish out more punishment than they abso- that's the rock that sounds like the rock. I think that's both I think it's both to you. You're correct. It is not only both is also vin diesel. I just read an article in the Wall Street Journal. It is all carefully tabulated by people on all of their teams seems to make sure that none of them ever get beat up more than they dish out did use carefully tabulate the scores <hes> I did carefully tabulate the scores Greg One. I think no it's a tie between Greg and Mesa. You go seven each. I I got a question for you. There's a movie coming out this weekend weekend. With my low below Milo Ventimiglia Yeah Milo called the art of racing in the rain. It's based on my facebook. My wife's read the book <hes>. I won't watch the movie because I know it's a it's a tear jerker. I love pets. Do you think it's a tear jerker. I have known assume that's a tear. I'm assuming it's a tear jerker dome yea I won't Watch Marley and me because I won't watch that as a tear jerker but I would argue that garth Stein Arte racing the rain is not okay fine okay. I will not assume that I will watch <hes> my question to you. Is What's the best movie you've ever seen based off a book or a novel. Oh that's a great question easy for me. Go Ahead Godfather. Oh man that's yeah right book too. It's a great book well. I'll throw rose something different in. I'll say I'll say the exorcist. Oh that's right. I forgot the access is a great book. Godfathers great answer a Goodfellas is that based on again Nicholas Pledge Reggie right and also trainspotting. That's not about rape book blindside based on a book it is there's a good book. I read lots of books and Dressing Park was a book that was a great movie Michael Crichton Yeah What about George uh I I would go with the Godfather as well but I would say blindsides a good one. I've read yeah. blindsides really part of the reason godfather to is so good is a lot of the source materials is actually in the godfather like the only stuff that isn't in the novel is Tahoe. Yeah silence of the lambs Hamas her great bus. I've got got another one here. Obviously Chat Taco Tuesdays become a big thing Brian household right yeah. They're odds on the next guest yes appearance Lebron's Taco Tuesday at his house got it. Who Do you think has the best odds of everyone and in the N._B._A.? Of Being Lebron's next guest this is this is how you know I get a good yeah. I guess to Kyle coups. That was my guess also if he's playing this right. It's you'll see you'll get the best odds out of all of you if lebrons playing his cards right it should be Jaanus Mello. <hes> I guess technically you both win because cow Christmas third on the list <hes> behind Danny Green arena plus calculus was plus four hundred dwayne Wade the faith. That's good they go uh-huh by the way <hes>. I just got a tweet A. D. M. Yup fast. Track is my favorite show segments. I'm loving today. Do you do this every Friday or as I I just slow and that is the first time ever that is sent from the Great Jimmy Jam Day Jimmy No Jimmy. You're not slow. We've never done this before. George Sodano is the one who came up with this idea and we ran with it so <hes> so far so good I <hes> let's see purgatory more the final segment of fast track for the day Friday coming up next on fast track Friday Mason Ireland anticommunist ski and George Sodano E._s._p._N.. L._A. Purgatory fast-track merge one more segment and I think George Chat you all right fair enough. Today I was hosting the jump and David Griffin came on set the record straight quote and quote about his comments about Lebron as we've seen we'll have some of that on the Sodano show for people listened to but what is the moment you you wish you could take back in your life that you could set the record straight on like if you had one of those moments like it could be a personal moment with like a family member or a friend does the rate set the record straight me and my first thought was I dropped a couple of F.. Bombs on live T._v.. Go back on the back on Fox Sports West when we were doing the show in morning drive lie and they were very close to each other. Wow like legit Virginia. There's no bleep on yes. Yes Straight Mental Anthony Today. He cursed on yeah. That's right that's right. That's my first thought John. What about you? <hes> I can't remember ever told the story on the radio but I remember one time I was sitting on the Laker bus and I got a text from Gary video kind of like our travelling very said. Hey your bus needs to roll. He gets Gary was in the locker room because we you gotta get out of here tonight. We're getting really late so send your bus now and so I walked up to the Front of the bus and Mitch Cup check with standing on the steps right and he was doing an interview with a reporter and I said Hey Mitch Gary we gotta go and the reporter just lost it with me because he had been. I didn't know this but he'd been waiting get cup. Check on the record about something for weeks and it was happening right then and there and I didn't know obviously I didn't know and so he just let me have it rightfully rightfully so I didn't know any better right and Mitch turn around and got on the bus and left and I killed this guy's story so I ended up apologizing to him and everything was fine but that's I wish I would've asked I right and that's what popped into my George. What about you because I know how hard it is to get those things on the record when you're working on them and I screwed that guy that yeah I don't know I probably only had I've had a blow up with my dad? When I was <hes> when I was younger mistake like I never apologized for it my dad so the people don't know my dad had a stroke and lost his ability to speak okay perfectly signed that if you think about all the time once he loses that yeah so perfectly fine could rash cash rational b. rational thinking he could read he? Could you know he understood everything going on. Just couldn't speak and one of my last interactions with him was I was a young kid and radio trying to make money and there he had loaned me some money and he asked me because he was very proud person wanted me to be the same way like when do you want to give that money back no because he needed the money but you're right and I was like here's your bleeping money and I just through the money really and it created a huge the problem for months and I never got to apologize for him because then he suffers a stroke a few months later I apologize to them but I was never able to. I never have a discussion insure about it. Yeah so that's the one I would take back Andy. Do you have one after that story anything. I was GONNA say feels anticlimactic it was there was a part of me. When I grew up I played drums and I played it for a while and was really getting into it and decide things you never knew about? Antionette plays the drums yes and and I quit for reasons that seem incredibly stupid now I knew and she would have stuck wish I'd stuck with it because a I would have liked to have known how good good I could've gotten be. I think it would be an amazing outlet to have now right but if we called your wife would she agree no but I mean but it's awesome awesome because I thankfully I have not had too many family. Member blowouts or serious rifts like that before. I just think about certain things that I really. I used to enjoy that. I wish I still had more of right in my life and drums is the one thing that stands up. I'll tell you this since you've got personnel. Get personal. I I absolutely be rated. My Aunt Anna after she questioned end of life decisions with my dad. Oh Oh man I could understand. It was really rough and I you know I wish there was a way to repair it but unfortunately I don't think that can ever be repaired right. I've I been there but it'd be in everybody else. I wonder though I saw blurb on the on now regardless. I think David Griffin is a really good guy and I think that I haven't seen your show but I've got it taped. I'll go back and watch what he said on your show later but I saw somebody write a headline today. David Griffin gets is personal about Lebron and that might be good news for the Lakers Kobe used to do this. He used to get motivated. Jordan students used to get motivated any slight.

World Champs and they were having a good night. The Bulls were in the second night of a back to back and he hit a three and the Bulls called timeout and it put the Raptors Raptors up by like twenty three at the near the end of the third quarter and Derek said something like Geez. Mike you guys even GonNa play tonight and Jordan turn mangoes. What'd you say Martin does nothing nothing walked up? Love of Jordan heard it use it and the Bulls came back and beat them down. Martin said you know I learned a lesson that night I ain't he didn't say it to get in his face face or anything. It's like you said it to be conversational boom.

Mason and Ireland (HR 3)

"All right it's time for a fast track. We do this every day. At this time. I got questions for Bryant. He's got questions for me. Fasttrack is brought to you by our good friend. Dr Grant Stevens get your body back on track fast. Get rid of those unwanted inches freeze the fat with Dr Grant Stevens and his team at Marina plastic surgery freeze the fat dot Com all right so brian last year. Danny Green shot forty five percent from three his career forty percent three point shooter so I'm going to meet right in the middle will heads Danny Green shoots north of forty two and a half percent sales south south of it. I just did heads heads heads. You Win Him. I am I it's July. I'm optimistic mood. Everybody's GonNa Shoot for Casey. PEAS GONNA shoot over forty two percent. Everyone one is <hes> go ahead. You go first okay so this is a story that a lot of young parents parents of babies and toddlers will will will understand some driving the baby we got an eight month old tech <hes> driving her back dropping off the kids for camp she screaming and we go to eight months eight months because we go to our I plug into the thing we need. The PU can soundtrack to win we up who called me up and so that always comes around eighty five percent of the time calms down each of my kids they had their own music that would some reason would work right. My question is as an adult. Do you have anything that has that kind of effect on you. That isn't drugs or alcohol because the short answer is whiskey but that's not what I'm GonNa be like some. It's a T._v.. Show of something you read something you listen to write. Just has that similar effect on you because I'm wondering I couldn't think of anything for myself. That wasn't booze right. When does that go away okay? No this is a good question because I like to the first one of the first things they check. When I stay in a hotel room is does the T._v.? Have Asleep timer because I like to go to sleep while the T._v.'s on but I don't want one in on all night right so it doesn't have a sleep timer I just put on your phone as the sleep timer for a podcast right but so my why people use it a lot for hours yeah <hes> my wife has been laughing at me lately because for whatever unreason one show you can find about six different channels at about in between ten o'clock and one a m is two and a half men so I have gotten into the habit of terrible shame. We'll see I disagree. I like it but my wife wife agrees with you and she'll walk in and say oh no not again but so I think the U I actually have come round to your side. I'm automatically asleep within fifteen minutes if I put two and a half men on the T._v. that means it's a bad show good show good show. We keep you awake correct so that is okay answer to your question Greg. Yeah I mean just reading reading books will put me to sleep if I'm laying in billy calming feeling sometimes not even to sleep. She's screaming at two in the afternoon. We put on Winnie the so she stopped screaming. We can go about our day. I have things that make me. If I'm in an angry mood something that'll make me happy I can out real fast like okay so then we'd I don't smoke you. Don't Greg don't draws his happiness from stealing cable uh-huh steel frame Graham or sporting event. Could I steal now. Now made me happy you stop it but no I listened to if ever I WANNA get if I want to be happy I listen to either a sublime song or I listen to yellow Mr Blue-sky. Okay okay wow that is all that I think that's probably came up before you were born and Mr Blue-sky always puts me in a good mood always winnie the Pooh interesting all right Brian. I I can't remember you breaking bad fan sure okay Mason and I love breaking bad. It's like a top three ratio for us all time okay so in February reports started to leak that there may be a breaking bad movie in June last month both Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston got fans excited when they each posted a picture of the two of them together with the word soon all right then last Tuesday they each posted that picture again and captioned it with even even sooner so everybody's excited this week Cranston and Paul revealed what they were teasing they have created and marketed a new meskel brand of Tequila. Now fans are mad and many are feeling duped. They thought the two actors were announcing a breaking bad reunion instead. We've got Tequila. Here's my question are pulling Cranston guilty of Bayton switch here or should everybody just calm down and take. I think it's one of those things you you laugh you drive me and because they are obviously it's a little bit of trolling like you know you know in the end like they know what they're doing and what they're capitalizing on trying to make a little buck putting out the kind of getting some buzz around what they're doing and yes. It's obviously a bait and switch but it's a good natured Bayton switch losing the movie you it's fine and I will say this. I have met both Brian and Erin Bet Brian Through Mason Mason is actually pretty good friends with Bryan Cranston and Aaron. I met ETA charity event for successful actors. You will not meet to better guys. I mean it's impossible not to root for these guys. As a matter of fact the charity event I was at with Aaron. He's married to this beautiful whole woman. I mean not surprisingly but his wife is a complete knockout and she was at the event. I was to introduce our old buddy derrick. Hall you ever meet Derek. I did okay so a Derek was in line. A book. They're going to wife unfortunately have beat cancer so so this was a cancer event that they were being honored for all the unfortunately they beat it unfortunately the guy. I don't wish it upon anybody but so we're happy we're happy they're still here so errands. Wife was there to receive an award for a charity dirty. She started called the kind campaign and basically this was she noticed in highschool that girls were being really mean to each other like right out of mean girls and she said this is stupid. Girls have it hard enough often the world we're going to start a campaign that just encourages people to be these people were dealing with and you know so Kershaw's I'm going to go out and buy a bottle of Moscow that was that that is being put out there by Aaron and Bryan and have have a shot in their check all right so there's a guy in New Zealand. Did we mention you're listening that you are just reiterate. We're happy urkel on his wife or still keep that out. Okay all right so there's a Guy New Zealand named Chris and we're there. His last name is being protected. I am assuming for his own protection okay because he is the guy who who killed the prime minister's cat okay just send to arden as the Prime Minister of New Zealand and her cap got out one day and apparently this guy named Chris ranted over this was in two thousand seventeen intentional intentionally just into arden's cadmium paddles paddles does the cat was it'd be heavy. Come like many first pets do very famous George Bush or Barack Obama's dog right exactly our current president doesn't have pets so he doesn't have a first pet so he he didn't insane for a long time and he finally <hes> has gone public and fessed up and apologized to the art earns for running over their cat cat now two questions here first of all. Do you think it's a little odd that you can just live next door to the prime minister like close enough that their cat could be your driveway. Accidentally running over to me seems odd of course couldn't happen in this country. That's the president lives in the White House but yeah in other countries resident who's that it's the prime minister's living next door to me. The second thing is if you were responsible for killing the first pet of this or another nation. Do you think you'd actually come clean or would you just take that to your grave now. Take them like there's no way there's no way to get past that. You Become Steve Bartman. You can't get past passed it eventually. His last name is GonNa come out because people are going to go next door. Forget who Chris is and he's you may forever. The Guy who killed paddles <hes> Steve Bartman has never been able to live a public life after he interfered with that foul ball that kept the cubs from going to the world series even now how the cubs of what do you invited him back to be a part of the parade when they broke the curse. A couple of years ago wants nothing to do with it. If you become the guy who killed paddles the cat you can never live. It can't tell anyone no not telling anybody. I don't think I would I don't think I would have I mean I donate to some sort of pet charity or do something but I don't think I'm telling any rate named for a cat is named paddles because it's a rare kind of cat that actually has opposable thumbs so he called him paddles little paddles. Why not <hes> okay so I have to say so? I'll play one now and I'll play one after the break up. This game is called who makes more I have a list of college and pro coaches is all right. I'll give you guys to names you. Tell me which one has the higher annual salary Greg. You can play Jay. You can play number one Pete Carroll Coach the Seahawks or Doc rivers coach of the Clippers Greg who makes more Pete Carroll just got a raise the okay J. P. Carol Bryant but I think doctors gotta raised to Dock Brian Chemerinsky with quick answer. Pete now makes nine million a year which is lots of N._F._l.. Coach doc makes ten and now and so it's it's not the duck got a raise. It's that they didn't take away money when you okay when they made Lawrence Frank G._M.. So doc is in Brian has lead all right J. Mitra thanks chef ski the coach Duke or Jim Harbaugh the coach at Michigan Basketball Versus football here but Mike Shiftier Jim Eski Bryant Harbaugh Greg Harbaugh. It is Jim Harbaugh seven point five five for harbaugh seven point one for coach K. in other words. It's better to be a college. Go Fund me for coach K.. Okay couple of John's here for you. Brian Jon Gruden the Raider head coach or John Calipari the Kentucky head coach. This feels to me it'd be like misdirection because we all know that gruden makes four hundred billion dollars a year. Jay knows exactly what he makes for in perpetuity by the ways you make eleven jillion dollars for the next thousand years right work so I say Calipari all right greg I it's it's Jon Gruden. He makes ten. I think CAL party makes around six Jay Gruden it is Jay and Greg correct dancers playing the game and not the Game California are you makes just under eight million seven point nine five and his Jay said John Gruden's contract was pretty simple ten years one hundred million you made probably getting an extra three or four hundred percent of the table a hundred percent everyone in basketball man all right. I'm actually she. There's half a point <hes> okay so greg. It's back to you Mick Cronin the new U._C._L._A.. Coach basketball coach or Clay Helton the U._S._C. Football Coach Mick Cronin or Klay Hilton Greg. I don't think Helton makes that much. Mick Cronin makes around four. I believe so I'm saying Mick Cronin Jay. I'M GONNA say Helton Brian Break the tie. I think it's Helton but it's not by much. The correct answer Greg Bergman <music> Cronin makes exactly four million greg you were right in the number and Klay helped me three point eight so Greg S. three Brian has to Jay has one and we have to left Jay Nick Sabin Alabama football coach or Gregg Popovich San Antonio Spurs coach Sabin or Popovich Nick Sabin <hes> Brian. I will say saving Greg. I thought saving was the highest paid coach period so I'm GonNa go Sabin all three of us in her pop. Nick Sabin eight point three millions low Gregg Popovich. I think he's the highest I think Dabo Maze the only coach makes more than him at saving makes eight point three Gregg Popovich ten million for pop for us one and everyone's in it Greg Three Brian to j one j gets to go last and Greg S to go. I all right so I I mentioned so this is a little bit you know one of these because I already mentioned it but Jon Gruden or Dabo Sweeney Greg Jon Gruden you know what he makes or Dabo who had just I told you is the highest rate coach wow college football. Who is that's not fair? <hes> wow or Dabo. I think you're messing with me but I'm GonNa go with Dabo. Okay Jay gruden Dow Brian. I want to say Gruden. 'cause I WANNA win. I can't wait if I say the other one yeah. It's true the correct answer Greg you blew. It makes ten Dabo nine point three million dollars all right Brian Brian wins who many a brian gets the two and a half and he wins more fasttrack in two minutes E._S._p._N.. L._A.. All right we roll on with fast-track and Brian. It's to you false. Check so exciting. Turn my mic on all right so let's do this one John. There's a fellow in Florida because of course named Patrick Benson okay who has broken into a string of fast food restaurants. They nicknamed him the Hamburglar can he was caught because when he went into a Wendy's before leaving in robbing the place he stopped to make himself a hamburger okay because you know Wendy's is delicious my question to you not I would ever encourage you to compound the era of stealing from a fast food restaurant <hes> by also stopping to grill and get caught but if you were to do that at any restaurant that you that you go to where would you do that. Where would you stop to prepare yourself a meal before robbing the place because the food is just that good does it have have to be a fast food restaurant doesn't have to you can you can tell me your fast food and then your regular place fast food? It would be chick-fil-a. I just I would not have to wait in line behind twenty three other cars. I could just actually it's every time I drive. I told the story last week. When I was on my hiatus one day I was driving around and you were probably near? I was driving around at two thirty late thirties after lunch. No problem I mean torrents I pull into chick-fil-a and I counted ended Brian. I was car number twenty three in line. I quickly backed out and said if you're in line at chick fillet in Torrance and you're on the twenty-third car. You need to get a life. Wow couldn't you just you could walk in at that point right for a regular restaurant. It would be a steakhouse. It would be someplace like Fleming's downstairs or does take a while. You gotta let that grill heat up to like five hundred degrees I mean where are you going Greg. Were you stopping to cook before you get arrested. I'm getting Sushi. I Will uh-huh sit at a Sushi bar or the Sushi. You don't have to you. It's raw fish you just stuff in your mouth and leave. You don't have to cook anything. That's true actually Cook Yeah. We'll see me but in <hes> Mongolian barbecue I would get some good. Love me someone go. What's the answer for you? Chick-fil-a of fast food restaurants questions just so good but then in and out you know there's a good restaurant in Manhattan beach called love and salt that has all these crazy pastas. That'd be a good stuff like that but it's a good course. This happened in Florida <hes> when we happened in Florida Dave Berry. The comedian said that literally all T._v. shows should just be scripted in Florida because it would get channel endless amounts of content all right Brian. There is a new report by the London School of economics into children's attitudes towards the Internet. It found that kids overwhelmingly wanted a grand erasure of their online footprint to stop childhood mistakes affecting their future professor. Sonya Livingstone who led the research said children were generally outraged when they learned how much of their personal information is being hoarded online online and they want a fresh start when they turn eighteen in other words once you become an adult Internet companies would give you the option of erasing everything you've ever written on the Internet. Is this a good idea. You're a bad idea. I asked the girl who just posted that video overlooking the ice cream if she'd like to get rid of that right I think I think the idea of having a do over when you turn eighteen sounds fantastic. I'm not sure now again. I did not grow up in the Internet. I mean it would encourage. I'm not sure I'm really stupid stuff until you turn eighteen. I'm not sure who take it. I'm not sure I would want all my memories prior to eighteen memories. It's every day it's a grand erasure. In other words you do not exist online prior to your eighteenth birthday but it's an option you can take it or leave it but you you you cannot pick and choose so you still have your memories. It's not like it's not like Israel earlier in the show that generation if you don't don't have a picture of like you know look I keep track of pictures and stuff like that through social media posts up on facebook. I frankly very few people have actual lauren copies of picture. That's true I have it in the cloud. Then human human there is no cloud. The cloud is part of the grand erasure. No I wouldn't do that Yeah Greg would you. I don't think I would. I think it's going to be now down to Josh Hater said those terrible were not a good. Everybody gets drafted into the N._B._A.. We'll have to do it or or any sport like they'll all. If you go back into it game the other day I was texting with Mason and for some reason I was like in a car wash or something and I was scrolling through all this stuff. We've texted each other over the I if it ever got out we'd both be fired his so candid and so like talking about stuff that we would never allow that's fine. My texts no greg. He sucks stuff like that. You would survive it we wouldn't your there's anything bad on their about you. It's just like the the thing that would get us would be the night of the Election Mason Mason. I was having an absolute total meltdown while I was texting him stuff like don't worry it won't be that bad you idiot of course it's going to be this bad mobile but yeah I think a grand erasure would would actually be helpful too many good but like you would hope it's nice to have that option. If you know you need to go nuclear has been that you've been that irresponsible all right you guys remember or may they not remember the sculpture called mothered by the Japanese artists Kosugi a silo <hes> it was in two thousand sixteen in an art gallery in Tokyo now. If you don't remember it it became a viral sensation <hes> when this creepy looking sculpture was dubbed Momo really and went out over the Internet you remember this the the we're gonNA find out if she does but like the became the Momo Challenge Mama challenge itself was really awful and horrible and encourage people to hurt themselves and all these things it was terrible cake and it was fake <hes> but the the sculpture itself is quite real and now is going to be made into a movie a horror movie according according to deadline okay so the Momo sculpture is now going to be the core of a horror movie <hes> Momo No. I don't know what we'll go. Look it up John. You'll understand and so my question yes you are. Yes it's goofy. Lookin' checking doll looks a little something you'd see in a Tim Burton movie right that good good analogy. Is this good or bad for Ramona's brand because we call her moment. It's gotten I'm to the point now where they call her mo Mo on E._S._p._N.. One you don't want the first thing that Google's to come up to be that so it's not good for her brand. Is it bad for brand like for years Mason and you know how this would drive mason crazy it. It took him years. I think he said if you googled Steve Mason it would be a hockey goal the goal for the Columbus Blue Jackets and now if you google it I think he comes up first so it it is. It's no you don't want you. Don't want your name to be synonymous with a horror movie. Yeah it's not good now because the now especially since people put Mama Momo to and the name of the sculptures mother bird yeah could to answer connect dots Morono actually type in Momo in Google it comes up only with this Momo challenge if you put Mama Momo in in there is still <hes> first of all Ramona's step Google game yeah but if you type in Greg just memo just google the word Ramona and see if her it's either her or the or the New York housewife that'll Ramona's Ramona Elementary School Ramona Hall Community Centre City called Remote wikipedia Singer. First thing I first thing is St Basin Stats News N._H._l.. Dot Com okay second thing is Steve. Mason adventist Mesa's twitter feed their yeah third things Steve Mason Ice hockey wikipedia four things Steve Mason stats hockey reference DOT COM fifth things Steve Mason Lee prospects so he's got one but the next seven are all about the hockey player Dino just sent me a really funny not tax. He says I would pay money to see the text between you and Mason for the first four months of me doing afternoons before the a lot I don't I can't remember. I don't think it was ever that bad to other people besides Mason. I think it was very selfish pat. Was it bad for you. I don't even remember being bad for you really to read them one day. You can read them. It's like we we're. We're I mean it's you. You don't want anyone else ever to be able to read. Your text knows no other people. Will you know that we don't want to know that we were complaining about all right last one. It is a it is another game. All three you guys can play let me find it here. It is okay thirty years ago.

A rare blow do it for corrales seven and a half to seven Brian and Greg Yeah Bernie was another guy that when George was working for the Yankees chargeable jeeter and Bernie Williams and George would not shut up about any of them all right Bryan. You've got one more we done. I more <hes> Oh okay so we'll break. We'll come back. We'll play one more from you. <hes> Brian Information Mason in Ireland E._S._p._N.. L._A. All right so Brian Cabinet skiing for Mace. I'm John Ireland and you had a cushion. That actually has to do with a subject yes so we were going bring up. Go ahead we often I like to do is I'd like to give you the option of choosing things as we know we once table the Navy skype penis which we still haven't gotten back around to eventually will will eventually return to the subject of the Navy skype penis. I'd another one which we could do about a person who set of baby bird to an animal shelter via Uber because he was too drunk to drive who saved us. We will table that like the Navy skype penis it will come back at another time and we will ask this question because <hes> the Atlantic League have became the first American professional baseball computer. Call balls and strikes has happened last night at their all star game <hes> the plate Umpire Brian Debris our he wore an earpiece connected to an iphone in his pocket. The delayed the calls upon receiving from eight track man computer system that uses doppler radar and so you'd stand there and your crouch right and he would wait for the pitch come in the thing would tell them whether it was abolished and then he would call it <hes> that was it that's robot. We've talked about this in in for calling balls and strikes the idea of having a robot do it and he said it kind of went off without a hitch couple delays in calls maybe by a second or a half second <hes> and it kind. I've just worked with a big deal Brian. This is the future of baseball umpiring. I Greg. I would change to this robotic strike zone today I would have it installed at Fenway Park for the dodgers game tomorrow night night if I could the Umpire's union but it was on the show today but recycling about how hard it was to get a drug testing program past the empires are going to fight this but it is ridiculous to me that the the strike zone in major league baseball is determined by how big or small the umpire is. They should have an automatic computerized strike zone in if it was up to me what happened today I never agree with your baseball takes except for this one degree good tomorrow anymore. Robots generally in baseball we should but they brought needs to be there because the strike zone changes so often doesn't matter who's behind the plate. It's so even if they're big small doesn't matter they'll call an outside strike strike and then a ball on the very next pitch when exactly the same right now. Here's the interesting thing the league you mentioned Brian the Atlantic League is they've just signed a three year deal with M._l._b.. To try out a lot of new rules like this on a small scale they're gonNA try a bunch of stuff to decide whether or not they should be implemented in major league baseball. They can try pitch clock there and trying to right so I kinda like like you said you rarely agree with my ideas. I'd be willing to bet a large sum that you will well. Hey this one but this is. This is another thing they're trying in that league. In the Atlanta in the Atlantic leak once their second-half begins on Friday. Okay players will be permitted to dash for first base on any pitch in any count that isn't caught clearly by the catcher in other words a wild pitch to the backstop could and probably will be punished by allowing a runner on first base in other words. They're implementing away to steal first base the ideas you're encouraging pitchers to throw the ball more in the strike zone not keeping out of the dirt and all that kind of stuff. To move play along and you have situations where fun things get the happen in baseball yeah. So what do you think stealing first base yes or no totally fine with it. What yeah totally fine with the I._V.? When you first I read that is the dumbest thing I've ever heard thirty seconds as you know what I am interested in that you can still be caught? It's it could be it could be zero zero count. You have a runner on a wherever is happening but you have zero zero count the ball. All goes in dirt barely gets away. The guy takes off gets thrown out at first. That's your fault or you can make it and by the way you can steal home yep. You're allowed to steal home. I have no can't you steal. I can dodger ranch. You can thank you don't mean if it was up. I wouldn't aligned this idea. I WANNA sign. I think extra inning games are ridiculous so they go way into the night so great. Would you compromise with me on on this thing but Felix said he thinks starting in ending with a runner in second base is ludicrous is how about once it gets to the thirteenth inning. We put you'd rather go. Twenty innings rather go thirty five inning. No person wants wants to sit through. Not even the guys in the dugout want to sit through a game that long that is crazy debited. I mean somebody's gotta hit. I don't WanNa see a guy just randomly put on the second base with an out that you'd have you didn't deserve right by the way speaking of Baseball Andrew Friedman and <hes> was on the dodgers station last night doing an interview and he said something interesting shirt with the next E._S._p._N.. L._A. Mason Ireland show Brian Chemerinsky information a couple of couple of pieces of news. We haven't gotten to yet one and this is a <hes>. This is too bad. The Lakers made a run at Ron Adams a golden state's lead assistant who is considered to be one of the best assistance in the offensive guru own young Masuku. We know well is reporting according via E._S._p._N.. That Adams has decided to stay with the warriors. He's not gonNA which isn't surprising. Yeah Not GonNa join the Lakers Lakers of already have have kind of a super friends staff of coaches. They've already hired Jason Kidd. They've already heard Lionel Hollins. I think Brian they're the only team in the league that has three guys on the bench who have all been head coaches somewhere else right and this was I mean this is a point of contention last year with Luke Walton. The Front Office felt that Luke Luke staff wasn't good enough and they wanted him to make changes in it this year <hes> if he was gonNA stick around and obviously that's not something that happened and obviously there anymore <hes> Greg Bergman has a quick update to the licking ice cream story stories. You're joining US late. I had a story yesterday and fast track where a girl licked carton of ice cream in a store in Texas. She then resealed the ice cream and put it back on the shelf to be sold. <hes> Gregg wants to give her five years in prison. I don't WanNa give her any prison time. At all. So completely on polar opposites we put up a poll and and Greg fifty-three percent last time we checked agreed with you forty-seven percent agreed with what is the latest the latest is fifty three percent however what we were worried about Michael and I were worried about was that it would cause other things worse things start happening copycats copycats but in worse doing worse things. There's a guy now who's taking a video of himself taking a leak on corn. You know you're GONNA the field. Oh No no in a grocery store or that's that seems different to me well. It's I put it starts serious question here Florida. It's really good question okay so I mentioned that Andrew Friedman was doing. I was doing an interview with essay who used to work with David. Who Does the does a great job doing the dodger reporting at the the other station and David asked him at the trade deadline and Friedman said Greg that he said what to look for now is he said there are several teams that in these first or last two weeks before astray did nine trade deadline's on July thirty first that are either going to be in and have a chance to make the playoffs or going to drop out and he said that several of the teams that we think are going to drop out have players who we like trying to figure out what is that code for and so like for example the giants? I want out okay so that means bumgarner probably getting traded right the giants are seventeen seventeen and a half games behind the dodgers right bumgarner. Probably Time Will Smith probably getting traded right only Watson possibly to okay philly still in it how how about the mets forty and fifty thirteen games behind the braves forty and fifty are they out of how far back in the wild card. I'll look it up. That's a good question. The answer is yes. They're out because there's suck but that's okay in the in the American wild card in the bangles or six and a half out there. They're still in it. Okay the The New York mets. They're right Brian. They're they're seven games out of a wildcard teams or in between them all of them every every every team except the marlins these are over that many teams after ninety games have retained games under five hundred. Hey Greg. Can I say for sure. The giants are out there five and a half games out of a wildcard. Maybe not they're probably going out there. They're already looking around trying to move bumgarner. Trying to move will smith the idea is that they're they're gonNA just push off at this point because even if they make it in nothing's going to happen so I can see them going. There's other teams like the reds are only four and a half games back there therefore what is it forty one and forty six yeah they have. They have a really good strong lefty power lefty named Amir Garrett and if that could be a guy who's under team control for a long time could easily be a guy that they move but because because the reds feel like they may be in it. They're not going to move anybody right now. So Andrew Freemen's right. There's a bunch of teams that are about to just fall off and when they do that's when you pounds. I've always wanted to be a power lefty right now. That sound cool no are you right handed the half the reason I never been able to do there's great. I can't remember who it is but there's a guy in Detroit Shane Green okay. A Reliever in Detroit is like a one e._R._A.. Yeah they're twenty games out. We can make that move now. They control him. I think he's only got one year left on his deal to let me see the but these are the types of things you wanna you WanNa look for green is arbitration eligible okay. He's thirty and he right great. His era is one point zero nine. He's got twenty two saves. This is the type of guy that could move and so and by the way Brian with this July thirty first trade deadline <hes> teams are going to have to make decisions earlier. I taste of sneakier Josh Norman Star in it because I know you gotta go. Oh yeah this is interesting. I saw footage and this is on highly questionable. Josh Norman went over to Pamplona and participated in the running of the Bulls like was footage of him like jumping over bulls and stuff that got to be a violation of his contract. I win of your if you're an N._F._l.. G._M.. Do you care yes. I don't want him doing that. You know what I care about the only if he gets hurt gets hurt void his contract but right but I mean you don't want him doing that sort of thing. You can't control it. You're running the Bulls because I think it's cruel to the animals but that's that's a separate question can't control people from Living Brian you gotta let them live. If People Wanna run with the Bulls let them run with the Bulls of toward its way to get your contract voided. Though you gotta run with the Bulls. Nobody cares if you get I understand but I still get all right. You can do your Job Post goring and I guess coming up next a chair surf the Internet for Games the boated here both Sodano and Trudell are in Vegas covering summer league so they're going to purgatory you. GotTa get Outta here but I will. I will take the opportunity <hes> thank you for pinch hitting on such short notice welcome. We don't know if Mason's espy's hangover will last days of available tomorrow. Maybe I'll see you tomorrow purgatory next E._S._P._N.. L._A.. This is supposed poster be purgatory but both Sodano and trudell didn't show up there saying that he mike is saying that he'll be here any moment now so whatever he's on Momo time on yeah that I did. Sodano texted me like half an hour ago. He was all Gung Ho because he hasn't had a show lately. He's Shootin craps. He's playing. He's playing Pov- as well there are like Jack. There are no clocks in Vegas which supposedly from the pool which which makes it difficult but normal normally we'd be <hes> we'd be knee deep in in purgatory right. Do you think they actually pump oxygen into the ideals. I know for fact that they do. I've seen this weekend. I have a friend that lives in Vegas grew up. There has worked there for years. <music> says all that all that stuff is true. You know you'll never see clock. They pump air into the <hes> into the thing I it's all Vegas is brilliant at how they keep you in the casino. What's Your Vegas Lake when you go to Vegas if you're just going on vacation not for Summer League now for any of that kind of stuff I used to gamble a lot? You play poker a lot. The last probably four times I've gone to Vegas have been like Laker trips like we go in for a game or two and I've gambled almost zero. There's just so much to do now yeah. There's there's great restaurants and so many things we went to a good good barbecue restaurant when we were here two years ago yeah it it. There's so much to do now that it doesn't that it doesn't matter but there's somebody somebody show in in Vegas Vegas but I'm not sure who what's up. Hey there's Sodano John. It's been too long. I was just GonNa say you were all excited about. I saw your tweet this morning that you were excited to be back in the saddle and having a show and then you're late I was late because I was trying to wrap up a meeting for the game. I have tonight so in. Who Do you have tonight Memphis in Boston? So we have TACO fall again. Who's been the hit of summer league basically and who they say is going to have to earn his spot on the Summer League team so? So are on the regular season roster so chances are you're going to start the year in the G.. League which means some other team could go in there and get them. He's on on one of those <hes>. What did they call it exhibit Era Exhibition ten contracts where he didn't? He's incentivized to stay with the Celtics but if another team wanted you come in and grab him they could. He's all seven seven right like he's Yao Ming Tall Yeah yeah he's just under seven seven and he's an unbelievable kid. The more you talk to him. The more you understand how if he does end up in the league he's going to be able to handle all of this perfectly like he has had questions about his game questions about how tall he is questions about if he likes Tacos just because his name is Taco he's dealt with all the pomp and circumstance as well as anyone can at this at that age all right so you only saw Zion for a cup of Coffee R._J.. Barrett has struggled although he played a little better in the second half against the Lakers last night if you were if you were to pick the bed the most likely player you've seen and throw Zion out because he only played eight minutes in Summer League that could make an impression this year that could be first team. All rookie is who that's a great question. <hes> I still believe in R._J.. Barrett I know he's had a tough go of it here <hes> and actually played pretty well last night I had last night against the Lakers but he he just got the skill set to do everything but shoot at this point and I think the game is show wide open John that he's going to make it's going to be easier for him. I think the transition in the N._B._A.. Even it was college because let's not forget ecology still average twenty twenty one points a game even with Zion yeah so I think it will work out for him. There's a kid that Boston drafted by the way Carson Edwards yeah he had. He was one of the leading scores in the country. Guides outs the kid from produce so good and Georgia Indiana forty point tournament game. I guess he wrong about did he had a forty point tournament game and then here ear. He's been one of the leading scores and just offensively. He gets up in people to like. He's a bulldog so I think he's been as impressive as anyone. He's just a late first round pick but he has been fantastic and no John Moran Right. He's being held Al Summer League yeah. He's being being held out. There's a lot of guys being held out. The camera. Tish is also been held out here as well. There hasn't been that many guys but despite that the ratings have still been really good for summer league basically on par and I've heard that they were outs have also been really go. Yeah crowds have been fantastic. I spoke to warn Gerry and for people who don't know that is you know that is John Warren well and when you say I spoke to earn mcgarry you mean he spoke to you. Yes well that too and he is for people that don't know he puts this whole thing together. Every year. It's the fifteenth fifteen years and he's also the most important coaches agent there is in the N._B._A.. Unique the unique experience of being the agent for both Mike Brown and Mike Dan Tony when the Lakers fired Brown and higher <music>. You're Dantonio. I bet had to be weird but he so he he and I were talking about. This and it's just they've had packed crowds like every single day. I just think it's become its own phenomenon. Now here where fans from all over the world are coming here. I had someone popping yesterday up to me. We're in like a LAKER LAKERS ZIP up and him and his wife from Canada and they were just talking to me about the Lakers and they listen to this show and all our shows on the stream and yeah it's it's just there's so many people here from all over the world. It's just an incredible place to be now more so than than it's been even previous here all right George. We need you to weigh in on the subject that has taken over the show for the past two days the liquor yes okay so for people who are just tuning in woman in Texas licks ice cream out of a container in a store in a grocery store licks it puts the lid back on and puts it back up on the shelf they get this on surveillance video but even if they they didn't she was dumb enough that she had one of her friends shoot it on their phone and she posted it and it went viral so she likes ice cream puts the cap back on puts it back on the shelf and they think they know who it is. They think the guys who took the video Greg Greg Bergman the producer of the Mason in Ireland show wants to give this girl who has seventeen by the way George five years in prison minimum. I say don't send her to prison at all. Come up with some type of punishment that embarrassed there's in teaches her a lesson. What say you oh I'm with you? I heard you in Brian talking about this earlier. Like five years in prison seems excessive for a kid okay like she didn't murder someone and yes somebody can get sick. I understand that <hes> but there's no way you should give her anything but community service or something like that and maybe a huge fine. You're not ruining a seventeen year olds life over just a stupid prank. You aren't but greg. Bergman is what people are saying to do. Oh now. I didn't realize that she was seventeen when we first talked about all right to admit though your position you you you dial back a little won't you. I'll dial it back a little specially because she's seventeen but what is this doing is causing a much bigger phenomenon that people are doing now. People are taking mouthwash K. Drain mouthwash. I mean people were eating tide pods. Ok P soupy so you're not going to stop. The Stupidity is the point. I understand that we at least those people that are taking the type onto hurting themselves. Done I get I get it so you know what what's going have to happen for a few months is that every supermarket generally tends to have a security person or people gross doing the stuff in the aisles right like stock in the aisles. Those people just have to pay more attention to the frozen food section for a few months well no. There's people is not even the frozen food section. It's the produce aisle where there was somebody taking a leak on on all the Corn Greg. Your father came up with a much better punishment than you did. Did you hear that one George what she has to lick the floor the floor clean and then that's the end of it but I- I Greg Your your position is finally being exposed as extreme and ridiculous and by the way jar just about the liquor shockingly Michael Thompson is the one who came up with the five years. I like who wants to throw the book at. I mean Michael. It's so funny. He's such a goody two shoes right. It's amazing with him like people. Do we not know that his son Klay Thompson not that he would do this but I'm saying like you look at Clay's life and you look at how Boring Michael is and what approved by. It's almost like there's no way they could be from the scene elated. They did yeah that is very funny all right so George. I don't know George before he came to us at E._S._p._N.. L._A. Spent most recruiting Miami where you grew up in you also living there when Lebron went down there with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh and you were part of all that so there was this report earlier in the week George from Kris Haines a really good reputable reporter that the Lakers have decided to play Lebron at Point Guard but last night Ryan Ruko who you're working with in Vegas Summer League did a sit down with Vogel Vogel Title Says Not True Here's Ryan and frank how you envision the pieces fitting since there was already reports of the Lebron will be your point guard right yeah. You know everybody's sort of piece together style. There's no decisions made on our starting lineup. <HES> NO IMMINENT PLAN TO START RON. The point guard spot a lot of different laminate lineups and combinations. Have this have been discussed but it's really way too early for any of that. Now I actually believe Vogel. George Bonello think that Chris Hanes might be right because Lebron kind of turns into a defacto the point guard on every team he's on has any yes so I think both things can be true right and I was actually standing on the other side of that camera where Ryan and frank were talking at that particular point and I think that if you're Vogel you have no idea idea what you're doing necessarily or at least not definitively right. Let's put it that way. He may have some ideas on some things but definitively nothing has been decided at that particular moment but you're right. Lebron handles the ball like that's the reality of it. I think the way he took it was maybe just kind of maybe literally like Rondo or whoever or Caruso may be the guy who starts at point guard but in essence we all know as you pointed out that Lebron is the defacto point guard yeah in Rondo actually is a good playmaker playmaker. He's just not a good shooter and he's not great at at the free throw line but rhinos managed to have a really good career by just setting other people up so there may be lineups were Rondo and Lebron out there at the same time anyway. Oh Yeah yeah absolutely look Lebron Likes Rondo you know and clearly Anthony Davis and demarcus cousins like Rondo so whether people like it or not and I'm not necessarily keen on Rondo getting big minutes Rondo is going to be on this roster. It's just a matter of how how much he's actually gonNA play. The guy that I think is the most most interesting question mark on this Laker. Roster is demarcus cousins. He did an interview George last night. I know you're you're in Vegas but he he sat down with spectrum sports net yeah and he's he's Gone Vegan. He's lost twenty pounds. He says he's in the best shape of his career and this is a twenty and ten career center if he's even seventy five percent of what he used to be didn't the Lakers just steal him for a minimum contract Oh yeah. I don't think there's any question look I <hes> I believe that demarcus cousins in the right scenario can still be a really good player because remember that last year in New Orleans he shot I think like five threes a game and shot him at a pretty decent clip two twenty five game with twelve rebounds right so I think that he certainly still capable of being a an impactful player in this league but I just think that he needs to be in the right situation now. Any team Lebron to me would be considered the right situation because I don't much like Golden State right like I felt like that was a good situation for maybe like went to the spurs right that would that would be a good situation where he's not going to be depended on to be the guy nine nine or even one of the top two or three guys night in and night out but yeah I'm with you for three and a half million with Lebron on the roster and guys that he's familiar with Rondo A._D.. I think that makes a ton of sense. We didn't talk a lot about this on our show but I wanted to get into it with you. There are now reports that Russell Westbrook to Miami. He is a real possibility that is being contemplated by Pat Riley and Yankee or in that gang down there yup is all those guys they were here as late as last night. I don't know if they're still here but I talked to them about a number of things including this all right so. I don't know if I've ever had this conversation conversation you but people listen no Russell Westbrook's my favorite player to watch. He's as he plays like he's in a video game he sometimes it's extremely combustible and it all blows up in his face but you know he's always GonNa play harder than anybody else and he's always. Is GonNa play like he's like. He's a crash test. Dummy Mason makes fun of me because I always see he goes one hundred miles an hour with his hair on fire. You put that with Jimmy Butler a decent big man in Kelly Olympic and some other parts that aren't terrible. Doesn't that make Miami a top four team in the East happens yeah look I mean they one Russell Westbrook and Paul George One forty nine games in the west with a team that really couldn't shoot around them and a big man in Stephen Adams so if you put that team in the East there are fifty one team. At least I think so yes. I'm one hundred percent with you. Could there be some potential clashing of the EGOS and whatnot between him and Jimmy. I've heard that that's a possibility that those guys may not vibe but I think the one thing they can get on. The same page about is is that right is that they both have kind of the same speed when it comes to the way they play and by the way not just on the court but holding guys accountable from a practice standpoint and things of that nature as we all know the infamous story or he would Jimmy Butler where he took the third teamers on Minnesota and kicked the first teamers butts right. We know that story so those two guys were competitive hyper competitive standpoint make all the sense in the world. If Miami can keep most of its assets which would be like Bam onto bio or justice wins though and the kid they just drafted tyler hero. Who's having a really good summer league right now then yeah I think it makes a ton of sense because I think Olympic will probably have to be have to part in the deal but their way higher on Bam Bam outta bio is going to be a real player in this league so what the what the thunder one are expiring contracts and picks Ryo they maybe Miami may be able to make a deal where it's lopsided like when the Lakers traded for Pao Ghazal and they gave up I think Kwami Brown and Vars crittenden because at the time Memphis wanted cap they wanted flexibility and they wanted pick so there could be a fit here George Yeah yeah well? Here's what my understanding of it right now. They're kind of at a stalemate press and Riley Riley has basically said we don't need to give you any assets because Russ's contract is worth a ton of money and you're not you WANNA get rid of it annual so he knows they're going to want to do right by him right. I'm just out of loyalty because he was the one guy that chose to stay in free agency so he's kind of using that against Prestige Presi wants to out of the three of those young guys that I mentioned winslow out of bio or hero. Miami doesn't have picks that they can trade because technically owns those picks because those picks were traded to the clippers twenty one and twenty three now they have some conditions on them so Miami could remove some of those conditions to kind of sweeten the array it looks like drag each Olympic. Miami's is offering dragoj Olympic and either dion waiters or James Johnson and their theory. Is You know what you're on the hook for rush for four years. Two of those guys are expiring and the one that is either or only has only have two years left on their deal so you'll get out from under that a lot quicker wicker so prestige wants two of the three young guys Miami's not willing to give any in. That's kind of where we're at you know what would if I'm press t I if I can unload Russ I think Miami might be one of his only options and I would do it. I think he have the leverage cheer no agreed and and here's the funny thing. I don't know if you saw this on my twitter of you scroll down there was an artist on instagram who made like this yeah Russell Westbrook and Russell liked it on instinct Miami Vice Jerseys Jerseys or whatever yeah so yeah it clearly he wants to go there. Whoa just talked about it on sportscenter that that's his preference to go to the heat and I know Detroit is trying to get on that but you hear nothing about Russ wanting to go to the Pistons all right? We'll continue with more purgatory charges and Vegas at Summer League. I'm John Ireland in L._A.. E._S._P._N. L._A.. Purgatory I'm John `Iran in L.. A. And now both Georgia Dino and Mike Trudell joining us from Las Vegas where they are both assigned to cover the N._B._A.. Summer League trudell how you holding up doing just fine John outside the bathroom. Once again makes me feel comfortable yet. We're in the old mason in Ireland memorial spot. We'd be Mason and I I did many a show from there and so mike the loss last night for the Lakers means they have one game left. Yes one game which will likely be tomorrow. My hope is that it's early back to L._A.. Yeah no chance that's how Lakers always in prime time but I doubt it <hes> so yeah that most likely means it will be heading back on Saturday morning unless I can hop a late flight Friday night or something like that all right so win or lose Mike. That'll be their last game tomorrow night. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean they're so right now. The Lakers there's John are in thirty seconds out of thirty two teams here yeah. I knew they were on four so the only teams that advanced are the teams that finished with the top eight record so that seems like the wolves and the heat and a couple other teams that have played while here but now the Lakers will be in having the Constellation game and then back John. I'm actually leaving tonight because I don't have a game until Saturday night so I'm like you know what I've been kids for a couple of days yeah and I've been here for eight days man. That's a long time to be in Vegas so just to take my mind off of of it for thirty minutes. Mike were you able to get home at all during this whole run or if you go I usually I usually find a pocket to get back but I haven't yet so it's been I. I like it here. I just I just missed the family and I miss the Ocean. I don't blame you. It's Nice here today to ask you about the big story in the N._F._l.. In L. A. Day which is about Melvin Gordon of the chargers in what's fascinating about this to me is it's one of those rare stories where I've heard both sides and I. I don't know how this gets resolved because as I think they both have excellent points Gordon is under contract he supposed to make five million dollars this year but he is a bell cow. He was second in the N._F._l.. In touches for running backs last year they're going to run him as much as possible. They're going to throw on the ball and what he's realizing guys. Is that the tread life of an N._F._l.. Running back short and he's got to get a deal so he's told the chargers he's not coming in unless he gets a new deal. He'll play for five million this year but he wants the security of a longterm deal well after that the exact scenario that Levian bell faced with the steelers a couple years ago and he wants what the rams did for Todd Gurley on the other hand the chargers see what the rams did for Todd Gurley they gave him a long term deal. girly is now <unk> hurt. We don't know if he's even going to make it to the end of that contract Georgia. I'll start with you. How does this end so I think they're gonNA end up paying him but I would be very careful on how the contract is structured because I believe running back is the most interchangeable position us here? The average life span for a player in the N._F._l.. Not Lifespan as in real life span but playing lifespan is three and a half seasons the the problem they run into here. John Philip Rivers Philip rivers is aging this point. He's not GonNa you want to play without one of his best weapons behind him to kind of take some of the pressure off of him so I believe that's where the pressure will come to get a deal done more so than anything else Mike I think the rams if they could wish they wouldn't have given girly that deal because now he's hurt. They don't know how long he's going to be with them and they're on the hook for millions of dollars if you were the chargers. Would you pay Melvin Gordon. I it's you know it's easy to say from afar that Oh yeah I would just take the bill belichick position basically and say tough. You know work like this is how we're going to do it. We're not necessarily GONNA give you more money than what your contract <hes> provides. This is. If you want to hold out fine go ahead. You won't make your money <hes> but so I think that's the way that I would want to run things but I feel like it's always harder when you're actually there and you have the relationships in George mentioned Philip Rivers. What if he gets really upset about it so I don't know the dynamics that exist within the chargers structure but my principled stand would be you know unless that's the contract that had been negotiated is completely ridiculous that we're not going to Redo it well? That's a good point. You won't be you know if they do it for him. Then Joey Bosa comes up in a year. It's just it's just a matter of principle but there's a player sometimes exceed their their value and I think if there's a way to reward that with incentives and with other ways than great but I do think that you get into that slippery slope territory and especially at that type of position whereas greatest Gordon is running back cement you can. There's there's probably some undrafted undrafted kid that could come in behind offense applies an excellent point you guys if you look at if you look at the top ten rushers in the league last year there are a couple of names in there that you like Chris Carson from the seahawks. Nobody thought he was going to be among the league leaders. The only running to Georgia's point about shelf life the only running back over the age of thirty in the top ten last year was Adrian Peterson and he played for a bad team the redskins you could get they could play Austin heckler and he'd be fine but George you know you're the point you made about rivers. It's it's not just that rivers wouldn't WanNa play without Gordon. It's that they they could win the Super Bowl. They're in a contender window here and you know if they've got a Redo quarterback and they're going to have to rivers is almost forty if they think they they can win a super bowl this year or in the next two years if they're basically in that rivers window. Maybe you pay Gordon just because if you've got to train a new quarterback in three years you might not be competitive. Yeah that is absolutely the issue here. It's just to me it's a bigger issue about Philip rivers in their window and then trying to figure that out now I think that their ways to put some protections in the deal right like you can make it <hes>. They've done this before quarterbacks. Andy Dalton is a perfect example of this where it was like a two year deal even though it was announced as a four year deal because the third and fourth year weren't necessarily guaranteed right if he got caught by a certain date you know he didn't get his money. I think there's ways to do this and look Levian Bell played hardball and he we still not happy with the contract that he got from the jets. So it just isn't gonNA work at the running back position. I personally wouldn't pay running back because I talked about their even some wide receivers that I would hesitate to pay so so I think that you have to be an ultra special case at those two positions because I think those positions are positions of luxury and Ken running back can be more easily replaced than wide receiver but I think both can be replaced by what's coming up in the Sodano show so tom does gonNA stop by. We're going to chat with him about the clippers and the Lakers and what's going on in the league. Amine is going to be here. Zach Lowe is going to be here. Nick nurses running around so maybe he'll stop by <hes>.

Mason and Ireland [HR 2]

"Eighty oh that is such a Momo Song me me me was in the Momo business is accusing me the of being self absorbed I mean what does that say. Wow right if you're black. Maybe it's why you guys get along so well and decided. Maybe yeah. So if it happens again if Greg happens to be in my my seat and you're there will you treat him differently. Will you treat them in an equitable way or will it be like. He's part of the caste system and he's not at it your lower your elite level but once I got over my initial disappointment I was pleasant. Yeah Yeah yes you were. You were pleasant and I was nicer to Clinton Yates and I was too much nicer to me. Yeah exactly are me no joke. I was sitting there on her left and Clinton was on her. Yeah right and she was turned with her back to me and talking to Clinton Oh wow that's rough he's on. TV's on TV. I brought Clinton over over. Yeah well you got Clinton to do the show at the hoedown show. I did you guys on twitter. Lot Layer Oh really was clarence the guy who does the Lakers stance purdy down on your phone. Your party. The Clinton is a buddy he was just like. Yeah I'll come by. And he came by the couldn't Clinton says yes you know what's what you gotta do. Have you ever. Have you ever asked Clinton come on the radio and he said no no no he comes on every time but I like those types types of people the ones that always say. Yes okay school. Everybody has now seen many many times. The the Mason Uh Rudolph versus myles Garrett incident. Yep that we saw on Monday night football and the it has come out. Just play this. This is myles. Garrett had an appeal and by the way the appeal has been denied he will remain on indefinite suspension after having his case heard by an NFL. Arbitrator here's what Myles Garrett said something thinking that has got together and I'm not gonNa comment on so apparently in his appeal He insinuated that Mason. Rudolph used a racial slur her the NFL Say they have investigated and found. No evidence of that You know I find this because I I talked about this with Ireland. Yeah and I said are there mitigating circumstances in an incident like this. I mean it was an ugly incident indeed for the League. Dangerous Incident But are there mitigating. Circumstances you know and I. I would argue that first of Aw Mason. Rudolph did inside the whole thing. It was Mason Rudolph who tried to take myles Garrett helmet off for the reverse happened And now Garrett has insinuated that may be Mason Rudolph said something inappropriate used a racial slur the NFL has found no investigation education of that. But is that a mitigating circumstance. I think so. I don't think it means that you don't get punished for swing your helmet at him and you get punished less. I would've punishments from last year if that was the NFL. Investigation had found that. To be true. And I I kind of believe myles Garrett I don't know of Mason Rudolph said it. But he he heard heard it from someone. I don't know if it was Mason New Senate but like you don't accuse somebody of using a racial slur unless you heard racial slurs and you don't. You don't do that when you're winning rats. That's the weird thing about your winning the game winning the game. Why'd you go to this extreme action unless somebody or something has really really really excited? Yeah like I think if you're miles you don't even make the accusation unless you're pretty darn sure you heard that absolutely I mean he seems consistent with to you like that that quote was from the first night that it happened right. When when's that from was was from that night yes myles alsgaard just tweeted. Yeah he wrote something on tweeted out says. I was assured that the hearing was space that afforded the opportunity to speak openly and honestly about the incident that led to my suspension. This it was not meant for public dissemination nor was it a convenient attempt to justify my actions or restore my image in the eyes of those that I disappointed. I know what I heard whether my opponents it's a comment was born out of frustration or ignorance. I cannot say but his actions do not excuse my lack of restraint in the moment and I truly regret the impact this has had on the league the browns and are devoted fans so he is standing by his accusation. Yeah I believe him. I believe that he heard what he heard i. It's hard to know. Oh who said it so you know when they found no evidence of that. It's like okay. Well what's the evidence. What is the microphone? All of the field I mean they probably could hear something. Somebody was probably miked up or closing. The you know. It's it's kind of like direct probably has a Mike and there's a lot of things that pick up right I'm sure they took it very seriously. Play but they just can't find that evidence and I'm sure it sounds like Mason. Rudolph is really pushing back on that. Here's Mason Rudolph apology. Thursday night to say the least. It was an unfortunate situation. -Tuation for everyone involved. I considered a privilege not a right to be part of the NFL to be part of first-class representing the Rooney family in the Pittsburgh steelers and they fell short on that expectation last Thursday night So there was his apology from the other day. I I forgot not Monday night. It was last Thursday that this actually took place place Keyshawn Johnson was on. NFL live this morning talking about the The idea that What If Mason Rudolph used a racial slur if that changes the reaction to myles Garrett and the incident based on miles reaction reaction to the situation being a black man and knowing that whenever I've heard that word a word slurs on me I chance to act different and so two black men. They just one of those hateful words that you're going to act a certain way emotionally if it's ever saying okay. It would explain the disproportionate reaction. Yeah that myles Garrett had towards Mason Rudolph Yeah you know what it kind of reminds me of the malice in the palace when you listen to Ron R.. Test talk about it Part the reason why he got so upset is there. Were some racial slurs that he heard from the crowd but also like it was he just had a lot of the guy threw something at him. Really the guy in the stands like three minute just triggered something and when there's sometimes just triggers you soon as you hear something. Tensions are her high. It just triggers you and this is also a very brutal game where there's a lot of you're in fighter flight mode all the time anyway and so you're really good at controlling that so anytime time it steps outside of those boundaries. I think that's when you snap like that's when something like this happens I think the NFL is treating this incident like its own malice in the palace. Yeah it is. It's like the punishments are like way out of whack for you know historically like compared to like I think in miles miles is defense was like another player did this and it was like he got two two games or something. Yes I like. It was a national. TV game it was a prime time game. That was was a terrible look and I personally think miles His track record should count too. I thought they should have reduced his suspension. I thought it was too much. Yeah I mean I I saw this yesterday it was. I don't WanNa say it's not that bad. It was terrible but if there are mitigating circumstances dances That should count for Michael funches. What's your take on? It has a black man. I understand I think has a black man. You've heard it before your in your lifetime and once you here you go crazy like crazy uncontrollable uncontrollable crazy just like myles Garrett. Yeah I get it. I don't know Mason. Rudolph saying his lawyers issued strong denials. So maybe he didn't but I Dunno like the behavior for myles Garrett suggests he did that then. Yeah yeah all right coming up next for you Let's do This after the game last night Kawhi Leonard did something very very Colli i Leonard did you hear this. I did hear this so good. It's glad I wasn't waiting hour and a half for him to do. I'm sure yeah we've got that coming up next for your clippers did beat the Celtics last night at Staples Center also There's a huge expose about the new so-fi stand along the state of the NFL in Los Angeles. I read several paragraphs of it. Did you read more of that one than you do of my long stories. Yes all that that. That actually hurts yes I did. That actually hurts. Yeah I did. This was ribs. Wow Yeah sorry about Mason and Ireland. ESPN Yeah No. That's a good idea. That's an easy one Hey one hour from right now. Fifth Row Fridays pop quiz.

Have you heard any of our giveaways for fifth row Fridays lately. Yes not lately now. Okay so but I have heard them in. The past. People are taking notes that to a degree that I don't remember people. A lot of people are are now downloading. The they're listening live. Then they're going back and they're downloading the podcast and minute by minute or writing down. Every little nuggets nugget could potentially be on the quiz because this fifth row seats and the Lakers are good again and the Lakers are spectacular. So it really does mean something like one thing last awesome Here's the thing if you're not serious don't you're not gonNA win. Yeah you got no chance because Bergman's made can the questions so uh-huh tough and they're going to get harder per week harder per week. Yeah Oh that's nice. Good harder per week I saw last night. The the clippers were winners. They beat The Boston Celtics at Staples Center is. I'm looking for something. My little board. I listen to AH this. Which one is out here? It is three twenty two points. That's not it is it is. Is that okay. Okay here it is this is. This is the one to call attention to three twenty two points to so there's a sequence in the game That was asked asked to describe in his post game press conference and listen to the way he describes it through the dunk. You have on the block What do you let me say? But everyone say it's more of just the build up leading into that play while you were seeing and your thought process with everything Patrick thirty two ball took a tutor. Who Sort of pain and tried to jump high and dunk the basketball and Campbell got it coping for three nine jump demise to try to contest and I got a buck there you have it? There is a an extremely literal L. Explanation Fun guy about what coli actually did so I think that's Mark Medina from USA Today Day on Yup and fun guy. I've heard that like a couple of times now. I think. I think I was trolling him. Oh no question like I don't think that was like what do you want me to say it's like there's a dance in interviews like this right there. You know the question. Yes our are so you're leading people on the other night but I was just trying to get a good quote like I was curious Vogel. Let's say so. Like Lebron had his. Everyone was asking. Okay Tuesday night. Was the last team that Lebron needed to check off the list. So we can have a triple double against every team in the league. All thirty teams so all the lines listening with their. He's been great this year etc.. So everybody's just trying to elicit some kind of good reaction or quote. My interview style is very conversational but like when when they're at a podium. Sometimes that works there certain coaches. That'll play with you a little bit so like I just raised my hand. It was like frank like you said last game. He's playing at a at a level. Oh you haven't seen at the highest level Iverson. How long can you keep this up right? It's a very conversational. Like of course whatever question and like frank played along with me because because he knows I'm just I just want to listen to quote trying to get something from him and there is a tinge of. How long can you keep this up? I mean the dude is literally like about turn thirty five right. And he's playing it like peak level and defense structure wise and we've taken like interview classes and stuff actually. We took one interview class us. Yeah fifteen years ago so so. Don't do the things you're supposed to do. We still don't but how long can you keep this up is actually structured ruptured. It's a good question. Marks questions actually structured incorrectly. Yeah listen you take us through those plays in the actually all quiet to say is no no or yes like you never WanNa structure a question to where they can just say yes or no can you. Can I write and you. Yes I do Dan most people you ask that question. And they're going to do the dance and the answer is not a bad question right. It's just a matter of whether co I wants to play along right clearly clearly. Did Not know did not have no interest if you asked Lebron that question Lebron would break down the play into minute details. Sure because he has that kind of recall Paul yes. He has an incredible recall for details of a play. There were happening. Yeah remember a couple years ago and we are all like whoa the bronze genius because you remember it every year. I know it's mcvay. It is mcvay like very much so so that was almost a coup. Why doing the Anti Lebron there? That's how I took. It could've kind of a jerk. Yeah a little bit. Yeah Yeah also think about this. Let's let's let's refocus the context here. I don't know when he came out but he has been doing interviews. post-game podium mm-hmm interviews ninety minutes after sack is here Zach. Lowe's Oh my gosh. He's you're going to drop me in a second. It's huge Zach. Lowe's here my favorite podcast is the low post. I listen all the time. And they're all they're all your seats. You have a standing invite on this show. Nice me too good to see. You didn't believe I could get Zach Lowe to come. I told Zak doesn't do a whole bunch. Doubt he'll do our show. How rude would it be for me to just walk by on my way out of studio I already am and wave? Just leave when Ramona's asked me to come out. I got a few minutes lab. Look I'm already laid on a column. I might as well even later there. You go well. It's great to meet. Do listen to the podcast every time so I don't get fired downloaded a bunch of times. I love the podcast. So I'm just GonNa Start General. Oh you know where the Lakers station. Are you surprised by what you're saying. I am not. I was high on the Lakers. Probably higher than most people and I just thought the Lakers are very easy to clown my own for all the reasons we call on them but they have to the top five players in the league. They complement each other. They have decent shooting not great shooting but decent shooting around them like. That's a pretty obvious formula success now. Did I think they'd be this good. Maybe not defensively particularly I get this kind of minutes. Thirty minutes a game combined from Joel and Dwight at this level is the expected that so is that has been at Staples Center. How many nights in a row three four three three zero? It's a lot nice. What has jumped off the page at you watching watching those three games about staple center know about the teams? You're watching because some things jump off the saucer. Good well and there were back props to Laker fans by the way for booing the fans who spilled food on the court now back to power and spill was heavily booed and I enjoyed that from the Lakers. You know I think. Everyone's intrigued by the same stuff from the clippers. Having finally seen the real clippers. Just how devastating they can be defensively. How switchable switchable? They're going to be the evolution of how Paul and and Choir GonNa fit together and fit with the Lou Trez thing which is like an offense unto itself All that stuff is is interesting but it's early days for them. Did you get a sense from last night. How in the future? We might see a Lakers clippers matchup and how so it might potentially play it out. What that game might look like Not much more less than from last night in particular that would obviously be Incredible to having L. A. L. A. Playoff series put the teams at this level. But you know the issues are the fun. Things are pretty obvious. Right like the clippers have to the two best guys in the league to throw a Lebron right. If you'RE GONNA if you're going to create a guy at least make Lebron work for it. They have to do you think they're big enough. I think the second thing was who Anthony Davis. We'll we'll be the question and I think I honestly think one of the reasons. They really liked to green as they've seen. He has a Lotta history guarding. Ethel Davis. Night can do anything. I don't know but it would be interesting to see how the re-jigger their lineup to account for this monster. That's putting up whatever at night. What team has been the biggest surprise to you this year in the League right now? I can't believe how bad this mercer I just had doors work on my podcast about this. Like the Spurs started slow before last year. But they're getting smoked by bad teams and they're five and ten coming off a forty eight season almost WANNA playoff series for them to be this bad as is a little little bit alarming and all the numbers on the Spurs are really alarming. When you look at how did John Murray has come back like we all thought that was going to give them a lift like Dante Zhang Murray is supposed to be the next great spur injury and and when he's on the court they're giving their scoring fewer points to giving up more points like he's just isn't isn't working with what they have on the court and I don't know if it's because Aldridge and derozen don't fit with him rather to slower he's fast or whatever it is but it's just not working? Ah I mean he's playing all right. He's playing fine. I think but they're starting lineup which they've just changed last night. They put Patty into the starting lineup. has been a disaster. And it's just someth something isn't right you know. They're caught between identities but they were kind of caught between identities last year to But you know like it's not shocking that they're struggling they. They started slow flow last year but the the way they're struggling is a little a little weird. Are they kind of team. That I just haven't known the Spurs to sit back and just be bad like none of us have. Yeah I like looking at both of those contracts in those guys you could move to Rosen. You could move lamarcus Aldridge. I don't know what you get back for him. But you could get you could you could move them I think if there's a silver lining for them it's that they have all the evidence they need now that you can't double down on those two guys together together like you can't extend to Rosen. You can't like that's the if anything you go the other way and see what you can get one of them. I don't WanNa keep you too long. Houston Houston obviously is off to a fantastic start. They play absolutely no defense whatsoever. How do you think they pan out at at the end? Are they potential challengers in the West while their defense has been good since the first five or six games. They're like top ten in defense. Insensitive started correcting some of their abysmally. Bad mistakes I think James Harden is a problem but he and I also think Houston has not gotten enough credit for being the only team in the West to push the words at all and I'm talking to the Super Team Kevin Durant Warriors. No with no one else in the West even like they. They could've played with four guys and when some of those playoff playoff series. But you know we'll see they're a little banged up in a low thin and to me the most interesting question in the NBA for the full season is what is Russell. Westbrook Westbrook doing when James Harden has the ball and so far it's been decent but that the evolution of that will be fun so that while you have Zach Lowe here you have to ask him a little bit about how he came to Zach Lowe. Why do you have your story the interesting nobody cares about? This is that This is my favorite. I just leave Zach. Used to be like a cops and courts reporter. I used to be a high school teacher about that. Yeah Wow yeah. The origin stories fascinates fascinates. That's how he breaks down games like a cops and courts reporter that instigative right. The girls volleyball beaten the valleys. I covered high so I covered high school. Sports to That's how I sold gumshoes started. Go Yeah I had nope I would be. I covered high school football in Virginia on the side and I would be charged like charging plays and stuff. Yeah except for your taller. I can see over anything so it'd be like what line is. Is that the thirty. Two or thirty four doesn't matter I'll just kept my old stats. People like my sat's I would inflate them exact Zack. Thank you for for coming in my pleasure. Thanks for inviting me. All right seeking invite by the way the low post podcast. It's it's out there every week. Nick Sabin today Doris Burke and Kevin Arnovitz and I did Marcus smart a couple days ago. That's going to go next week. Goals smart like that neo in the Matrix play awesome. Yeah look forward to those All Right Mesa in Ireland. ESPN LA. So I'm actually kind of a Dork. ORC You're like starstruck Zach. Lowe came in here have you. This is amazing. What had just happened? There really doesn't happen with me. Generally speaking I mean I've I've talked to. I've interviewed a lot of people I know you have. That's why I'm surprised and I'm generally you know. Nothing really surprises me for some reason season because I listened to his. I'm a listener Yama Zach lowe listener. I had a different reaction and I was kind of starstruck by him. It was like you saw George Clooney. He come in wasn't really. Yeah it was Zach Lowe. Oma God I've asked Greg so many times to get back on on the show and Zach always says lightly says no he says No. I'm sorry too busy or sorry can't do at that time he does. He does a lot. Doc Zach today. Sorry it'll be gets back to you so that's good. I mostly just goes people. I don't I can't do you. Normally just goes people China about it. Just this gets tiring. Sometimes you just like you try to like write a whole explanation for them. I'm really impressive. I don't don't get back to you though Greg. What if I told you I do anyone at our station or if I know you personally I'll get back to you but if it's just a radio preacher I haven't met from you? You know whatever yes right. Sometimes I do sometimes i. I can't sorry I don't want to give you your change. There are people that we've asked for four. Oh I don't know one hundred times. Who always politely say no? Ken Rosenthal Ken. Rosenthal always politely says no but he says he always always gets back he gets back within like two minutes so I feel like I can continue to ask. I think it's like an automatic message. Novell savell sorry no lying semi automatic texts. I should have those on my phone. You should. That is how I could respond. -CATION message yeah. I should do that like what to do because a lot of times they answer is. It's not that I can't do it. I don't want to lie and say I can't do I could I just don't want to I I don't want to always be on. Could you could do affiliate radio around the country all day long. Yeah I think I think I'm at the point point in my career where my default is now. No thank you I appreciate the AC I do I do I do when I can but one I need to be on the phone for my job I need to be. My job is literally to talk to people. You know the one person I would say yes too because a lot of local people will ask me to do stuff one person. I would always say yes to Jim Hill. I would always say yes to Jim. I would always gotta yesterday. Jim Hill me to anytime I've you yes I will do that absolutely whatever you need. Yeah Yeah I was busy someday someday. Maybe I'll be on sports central. Would that be would be Jim Hill. It's a big deal yet. The he's like the dean of the Helen Thomas He is L. A.. He always gets. I always earned the right to always Jim Hill for like. I've been doing this for fifteen twenty twenty years now. I don't think he's aged. I don't either. WHO's Helen Thomas? Helen Thomas was a White House pool reporter who for years and years years and years was sort of the senior person and and the White House press room and she always got to ask the first question. Okay so yeah definitely Jim hill and everybody like like deferred to her. Yeah because they had so much respect for her. So that's how we are in. La Like we all if we're in an interview. Jim Hill standing there. And it's like he doesn't have the first question we're all like like something's wrong. Yeah what's going on. Something's wrong nobody look over it. Emily don't let me go coming up. Listen coming up next he is. Would we decide his. His record is nine hundred ninety. No the Fez Stif as IQ nine. Oh with his best pets. This year are gambling guy and he will give you another other best bet coming up next Mason Ireland. Espn La Ladies and gentlemen the most successful sports handicapper in America. Gotcha he is nine. Oh with his best pets this year. Can he extend that streak last week. He Ju I'm Oh yeah I was GONNA pick him league and it's it's a hard one to confidence points and again spread all my God. It's so hard. And he said I really liked the jets there. They got their getting two and a half points are they were great though last week so I said okay. That's my pick and I did. Sixteen confidence points on the jets and they blow them And joining us right now is The aforementioned Steve Fezzet Fez. What's going on? who was betting? The Washington redskins against the athlete. That line went all the way up to three in some spots. Can anyone explain that to me. They were home right back home. Washington Washington was home. Maybe and then they had the new quarterback back but they are Washington they had haskins so maybe they were a tremendous amount of talent and just as not ready for the NFL yet. And he's being forced in. Yeah and case keenum. It's the much better choice right now. Just right now at quarterback so now do you feel the pressure. Here is your nine. Oh Do you feel the pressure to extend this streak here in Los Angeles you know. beat the perspiration are pouring off my scalp. I'm like shack. Used to be on the free so so why don't we start. Actually Tonight's an interesting Game Indianapolis and Houston Houston's coming off that shellacking by the Ravens indies. Pretty good they're they're a They're on the outside. I think but still a playoff team. What do you make it tonight? So I am leaning to the favourite here Houston is all about the situational channel spot. These two teams played earlier in the year. Andy got the Windows Close Game Thirty twenty three and he did. Bring the pressure against Watson. That's how you beat Houston and and especially in the last two drives. Shut him down but it was a bad spot for Houston they just beaten the chiefs and Andy was off of by so I would argue. This is a good spot. Houston just got absolutely absolutely embarrassed against Baltimore. Baltimore will do that. You and with a short turnaround always favor the Thursday night home team anyways so if I had to bet it I yeah Houston is interesting with Houston getting embarrassed by the Ram by the by the Ravens. 'cause they're out here playing the rams this week and Baltimore looked like the best team in football in that game and I'm wondering if they really are that good or if you send just didn't just didn't bring it. I think Baltimore may well be that that good I got them as my number two rated even the NFL just behind the Patriots and two big differences. The defense wasn't good for Baltimore earlier in the year. And they got Jimmy Smith back they got a cornerback from the rams into that defense has been much better and Lamar Jackson. What a joy it is to watch him play is I re-design theory toxic to run any stop and shows poison? He looked back down the field. He is playing at an elite level. So I I don't know if you've gotten this memo But my rams are back we are back after that win over Chicago and I can feel the upset Bruin Monday night under the lights at at the Coliseum. What say you I say you are correct? See the rams a winning this game easily actually only got half the memo. The the defense is back. The defence is playing great. They've held their last four opponents. The defense has to ten points or less and because of that. I'm going to overlook some of the shortcomings that quarterback struggling in the like. Because let's face it. We a Green Bay. Get the Flu Baltimore. Four straight wins forcing forcing news on an average twenty. Three points if ever. There's a team that deserves a nice weekend in Los Angeles and to have a exceptional exceptional weekend. It is Baltimore despite what harbaugh tries and because of that I mean Baltimore just not looking past this game but maybe not bring their best effort and the rams need the game like blood. I like the rams. Wow yes you like the rams to cover or to win both and and this is a classic pros vs Joes game where the public loves the Baltimore. How could you not love Baltimore last week? They're playing after the last month and they're playing as good as any and they're like they're like the sexiest team in the league right now but Ramona. What have we seen in the NFL year after year? What news up comes the best teams? Don't go fifteen one. They typically go twelve and four and they lose four games and this is one of those games that Baltimore is going to likely not likely weekly but easily could live. I don't know if you know there's a We missed our trick there. USC TROJANS FAN and We're getting ready for the rivalry game tomorrow are I'm sorry. Ah It's Thursday tomorrow Saturday. USC VERSUS UCLA. The game is at the Coliseum home game for USC in their thirteen eighteen and a half point favorites The trojans are seven and four fighting to save fighting to save Klay home job which cannot be done at this point But what do you. How do you see that game so initially I was going to look towards? UCLA USC actually has possible path to the PAC twelve title game. And because they're fighting for the I can understand this line moods got up from twelve to thirteen an APP and that's frankly where the just how ratings roughly naked they actually make fourteen but the money on the total. I think it's been the sharp money it's up to sixty five and a half. Ucla has been playing much. Better on offense. I know they had a bad game in. Utah happens in altitude. Ucla the book on Amazon often get better throughout the year. I don't think that would be awesome. The money on the over all right so you agree with money in the over and who do you like in the game game. I would lean to thirteen and a half. Okay got it well. It's thirteen I. I don't know if you've noticed but in the background the USC fight song is in a war with the UCLA fights on. I was wondering what that background background. Noise I reckon sweet but not in the game you're just leaning the points on USC. I think you're going to win the game by fifteen points. I was going to wager on the thirteenth skies. Wow all right so it is that time boy. I I am a huge fan ahead of yours this week. You like the rams and you like the trojans now it's time Fez nine and no with your best this year. What what is your best bet this week? Detroit Washington under forty one points. I can hear people throwing things at me. This is one one of the worst games on the NFL card. It's all about cashing tickets. So think about these. Two teams compromise at quarterback Stafford effort very very likely not going to play so the the Bengal Castoff terrip address go has to quarterback for Detroit and Washington. We saw them go. Sixteen quarters quarters without scoring a touchdown before breaking through down. Thirty one to three against the jetson getting two of them. So Washington has a rookie quarterback. That's not ready to play in the NFL. So what would you do if you're the head coach. And you had one of those quarterback I'd hand the ball off and wait for the other team to make a mistake under forty one physics best bad as we attempt to continue the perfect season. All right. Hey Fez thank you very much for coming on. We appreciate it as always. Good luck with your best bet. Thank you guys have a great great weekend Yup YouTube. So there's Steve Fezzet that really is nine. Zero is crazy. That's really good. Yeah where where do we find. His other picks tech's we don't I just WanNa like copy all. Just just text him fix all right coming up for you. Mama. We did this earlier. But I want to do it again. I want you to take us inside. What it's like in the Lakers locker room after a game this year That's coming up next for you. Plus we've got our our fifth row. Fridays quiz coming up at five. Fifteen your chance to win. A pair of tickets to see Lakers vs this is Washington in the fifth row at Staples Center Day after Thanksgiving Mason. Ireland E._S._p._N. L._A..

Mason and Ireland [HR 3]

"Yes It is twenty twenty. This is the season premiere of Mason Ireland's Premier got all different stall new episode all new episodes including voting at some point a very special episode. I'll never do that. Yeah we well. We'll do it a very spent we we we all serious entire show. We've done very special episodes. Yeah always respected about Seinfeld. Zero very special about our lives differ segments for segments. Yeah we've ever done an entire tire Downer show. Now we've done an entire debt. Seinfeld never very special episode. Never anything where they tried to teach you a lesson or something with meaning. It was just basically making fun of themselves. Yeah that's true. Although I've had I've had very emotional shows here sure but not like the whole show even when you came out we didn't do the whole show. No no we didn't. It was just yeah in and so it L. At my dad episodes. What's yeah but those even then when our dads died because they died right next to each other we didn't do? We did like segments right which I think should always do. Nobody wants tune in at us to get serious for three three and a half hour. Oh God no speaking of which okay. So how much football do you to watch this weekend. all of it. I watched all the football all right. So we're great games. Climbs everything close. I have never. I've been watching football since I was a little kid. I've never seen worst decision making then then at the end of that Houston Buffalo Game I literally befuddled by it all right so buffalo is driving to try Ryan get the tying phyllis they're basically in field goal rain right and Josh Allen who had been great the entire jail apart takes a sack on secondary secondary so now they're like bordering on field goal range but they can still do it he takes a sack on third down so now it's a sixty yard field goal with like three minutes left. They're down three. Its fourth and twenty seven. Yep So thinking in my head okay. There kicker has made a fifty eight yarder. This is to tie a playoff game. May want to give them a shot to do it. But if is not pundit you still have all three of your time outs and stop them and then stop. You'll get the ball back and you'll have a chance to get back into field goal range and it's not fourth-ranked orange twenty-seven they go for it on fourth and twenty. Sean McDermott to coach. I mean she shown explicable guys get fired for stuff like this then he takes another sack. Yeah Josh Allen takes another sack on fourteen which makes zero sense even if you throw the ball hundred lately back in yourself okay. So the the buffalo has now because of bad coaching lost a game but wait Houston gets the ball yep and they. They're running plays to force buffalo to call their timeout and its fourth in one okay. Buffalo cannot score. They're going backward it off all right. So you're Houston it's fourth and one from the fifty. Okay Yeah you'll be making them gripe eighty yards or forty yards over. These are offenses a mess. At that point they go for it they go for it and they they run the dumb up the middle play. That all coaches do you too much. Yeah take it stopped. Buffalo gets them all basically at midfield. Complete two passes kicks field goal game overtime. I've never scene two decisions like that back to back. That made as little or something seven stupid as those two McDermott's again he's very well regarded. You might be coach of the year provoke. Buffalo had a great year integrate year. He's the guy that played against the charger. And I think Josh Allen is going to be a really good quarterback here too. I think he had the best weekend of any of the losing quarterback quarterbacks but the the best loser well but thinking about the the losing quarterbacks played pretty good. Yeah I mean. Drew brees wasn't great And radios okay. Yeah gesture now get thrown in there and couldn't do how is it cheap shot by the way the shot on Carson. The clowning Davey and cloudy now. If he was playing college probably would have been e. Jack dove down twisted himself and made a helmet to helmet hit Yeah that but those those two decisions made. I don't know if coaches just get freaked out because it's the playoffs or date. They think fourth twenty-seven I have to go for it right McDermott's the guy who played Nathan Peterman against the chargers in Carson WH- Peterman threw five interceptions in the first half Yup and he wouldn't put tyrod Taylor learn the game so I think he just gets a streak stubborn in a mini can't cure and and and there's GonNa be a lot of conversations about coaching you if you weren't with US earlier the rams decided they're not bringing back wait Phillips As their defensive coordinator net there now in the market looking for Defensive Coach and coaching is never been more scrutinized. Yeah and and the rams are GonNa stay internal I think Joe Berry is going to be the The defensive coordinator. I wouldn't be shocked. Act if they went out and got somebody that's more experimental but let's see yeah let's see Because the defense was not the issue this year for the rams it was really the case. So there's thirty the defense by the way the cowboy game is the game at all. The season fell apart. Wait a minute I. I don't think it's that simple. I said cowboys that's all right. We're cowboys I don't think it's that simple. I think that the one thing that thirteen and three rams at ten went to the Super Bowl even even the games they lost. They were competitive right. There were three games this year too at the Coliseum. Were the Amer in the Ravens right where they gave fifty. Yep they will I think forty eight to Tampa and forty five to the Ravens and then the cowboy game gave up another forty. Yeah so you I mean that's that's just but this surprise me there thirty teams in the NFL. Where do you think the rams ranked in defensive efficiency this year? I think that a thirty fourteenth ninth did they. Yeah so they weren't off. I guess it all depends on how you measure because I looked at the in total defense from next Gen stats. They were number twenty right but I think those three blowouts is what. Dylan's weighed in right that you know you can't you can't think of a forty eight points at Tampa at home. I mean there have a nationally televised game against the Ravens were. You don't show up the Ravens Forget it the niners forget it they they were not in those games. They were not close in those cases they were never in games. Totally disagree about the Niner's the number one the nine or so class in that game. Okay that that Game Jared Goff Mr Wide Open. I can't remember if it was higby Gerald. Everybody missed him but they they lost twenty two nine all right the game in San Francisco against the niners they had certain rate in the game. Patch San Francisco. Maybe that could save Wade. If they don't give up to third and six six grains correct They do that. I mean if I go back I mean and you know I flashed through this season because nine and seven and now making the playoffs is really a bummer. Right but I mean the Tampa game here of Seattle. Go Away from Seattle Field Goal They were jared Goff Turn the ball over twice. They went down twenty one. Nothing in the Tampa game The call in the Pittsburgh game where Jared Goff. I don't think is I think his arm was moving forward. They ruled it wasn't turned into a scoop and score. I mean they're you can dial al.. Okay that's what I say I project forward with the rams free second. This is a weird question yup in in the NBA. The answer no matter who the player is would be yes. It's a little harder than the NFL. But is todd girlies contract tradeable. Know what about this. What about for another? You know if you do a dance of the lemons for example like Adam gays does not want levy on bell and he's got four years left on his I would I would if I was the rams I'd make that trump in Bella still totally totally useful. Hold on running. But you'd be taken on Salary Levian Bells Contra and it's not like the NBA were i. It's it's different and the other thing is you hear about contracts and you say it's the the the term you need in the. NFL is how much dead money is on a contract. You hear all the time guy signed for one hundred million none. None of that matters. It's the guaranteed by the counts against cap rancher. These dead money number is about fifty. Milligrams have an opt out on the girlie contract after twenty twenty twenty one. Okay so what you WanNa do is find another team. That has somebody that they don't want that they owe a boatload of money right it. Is this kind of a wash. I mean Todd Gurley ran for seven hundred and Change Levian. Bell ran for seven hundred and change their kind of the same guy Todd Gurley did of I think eight touchdowns right and data Levian bell and it's going to be a hard contract to move but running backs. Are you know that's why nobody pays running backs running backs get beat up and get cut cut down and you got to move on and I saw les needs that. I don't regret the contract of Syria. I mean he has to got to and I actually think he probably regrets the contract. Jared Goff Yeah I mean you waited a year and you didn't I I mean I think what the Eagles could've done with the cowboys did. Yeah but I think the US with the Carson wentz contract and the rams with Jared Gov con Contract may have moved to early on both those. Yeah you would have gotten jared Goff at a much better number and now here's went with another season ending injury which is at each of his first. First two seasons. Yeah so that it's it's tricky. I think the rams need to make the playoffs next year or else then then this what happened today to wait. Phillips Potentially trickles into the front office so I mean I think they're not but they were one field goal away. Line is normally money in the bank from tennis. Think of it this way. They went twelve and four thirteen and three nine and seven. Yeah they've not had a disaster and both the Seattle Game Seattle and the Niner game in San Francisco could have very very easily win. Yup could've gone teams if think about last year. They won all those close games this year. They just went the other way. Do you like now i. It's man it's a coin. Flip up particularly in the NFC. I'll tell you next. I got an idea but I'll tell you next. Yeah I know the the right answer. I'll tell you next Mason Ireland. ESPN LA. Hey it's Monday. It's twenty twenty by the way definitely check out the new calm. Tom App endorsed by Stephen a Smith. Because nothing's getting isn't because nothing says meditation. Attention like says calm like Stephen. I thought that was a Saturday night. Live sketch even for called. FRY GONNA get in trouble for that but screw it. Well you know. It's like you're vase last year on doing last last contract last contract it it is it is interesting that it it all depends on where you work. Yeah Okay I played golf with James or the other day and he was telling me that Charles Berkeley says stuff on. TNT sure that he could never say on spectrum and if we set it on ESPN we would probably get suspended for example. I can say this was now. Wait a minute for example. You said we'd get suspended you'll see but this is not me saying it. I've been told by the away if something offensive happens I should not speak. I should get up and leave the room. Okay you can decide whether or not you want to get up and leave the room again. This was not me. Newest Charles Berklee. The Pistons played a game in Mexico City. Yup and they didn't show for the first half like they just got blown out in time. FARC Lee said it again he can get away with this and other people can Barkley said Ernie Charles. What'd you think of the first half Berkeley goes well? I got some friends in Detroit and all I can tell you is. They're hoping that they hurry up. And build that wall and maybe leave the Pistons on the other side falls through now. That's a good. That's a good line but you can't say here. No okay. That's it but that so if in some places you're able to have a license to ridiculously lose now did you watch the Ricky Gervais. Monologues unlocks Weinstein unbelievable. Unbelievable thing was the shots of the people in the ideal time hanks comfortable they were anxious had his and and then they would just cut back to Germany and he said I'm not doing this anymore doesn't matter matter. He had a beer on. Thank your agent. Thank your God and get the F.. faulk we don't WanNa hear any political statements and then like the first thing Russell Crowe wins and they read a political. He's brilliant brilliant man. He is brilliant. All Right so oh yes so. We're GONNA do this super bowl now. We've we've done eight teams. Yeah I think we're down to eight or sixteen now. That doesn't make any sense. You're down ever SAGANA foreign each conflict. Okay four so there's total of eight okay so new to this math. I think Baltimore's going I mean to. I think I think the Ravens are going. I'm all in on Baltimore. That's the best team I saw year. What's interesting is there will be? No Tom Brady. And no Ben Rothlisberger in the Super Bowl. Yeah who's the last. AFC quarterback to is it flacco to win win the super double other than Brady or Rothlisburger. Think it's FLACCO hassles lack. Oh Yeah Yeah. So the Mark Jackson. But but like who's left. Lamar Jackson the Home Ryan Tannehill Tannahill and who we leave it out. We're leaving out to Shawn Watson. Yeah I mean so one of those guys is going to be in the super bowl yet so I I think I think it's on our Jackson. I think Baltimore too. I'm all in on Baltimore now. The harder one to figure out is the NFC. I'm picking the upset here. I Hate San Francisco. I hate him. Kirk cousins no. No it may not be Kirk. Cousins knocks him out. But it will be Russell Wilson. I'm rooting for Seattle. And I picking Seattle really yeah. I'm picking Seattle. You go into Green Bay and win yes I do. I I have Russell Wilson versus Lamar. Jackson is a great super bowl. You know what Russell Wilson's record on the road is this year no eight and one the okay. Okay see you know where the one fact somewhere the one was. No you were there. Oh yeah was coliseum sir. I mean. They've just been. It doesn't matter that they plan they win. Everywhere the what after all is said and done probably we my second favorite team in the NFC is Seattle. Because because of Peop- I dislike Pete that's blasphemy. What is wrong with you know I? I've I've always in the same division. Oh but I I like Pete. raisman Manley was the coolest guy in a little email to his school. Now has clay Helton and and Mike Bone of course. Plus if Tommy lasorda went to the giants for some reason and giants this thing about I I don't i. I consider the niners to be a gigantic rubber. However I don't consider I don't consider illegal rivalry pete always treated a so well good guy? It's hard hard to not like Pete Carroll person over team never go nothing Reggie Bush knew absolutely nothing about horse not and and and as far as you're concerned neither did pete neither neither the the thing about the NFC is there's really no clear cut dominant team. I right the niners. You could totally see them losing. Yup You could see Green Bay. Lose in. Green Bay has not green based on fire at all Seattle's great on the road and now they have to play. Well you know what they could get the game at home if they Minnesota win. They get him. And I don't rule Minnesota. I think Minnesota could be San Francisco. Hey Big Game Kurt Doc. How one in really in his case one play can totally change your reputation that throw e put? That was a chimney to Adam. Phelan APP hype in the Air Right into his arm. I mean and then boom they get it in but but it just seems to me that the NFC is completely wide open Your your Seattle pick is not crazy but headache. Think it's probably Ravens niners. You like that you know that is why you mason. You've never heard that. No what's wrong seat all my gosh. That's kirk cousins. So going Kirk though. That's right when Kirk cousins was the quarterback in Washington. Yeah they had a big win at Carolina and he was walking by world media is camped out Yup and he told the story and Dan Patrick Show this morning. He said that he was super criticized size when they gave him the starting jackets everybody was in love with. Rg three and they said he goes to be honest with you. People didn't like me but I figured they would like that. They'd like the fact that we went on the road and Carolina so he did that in front of all the cameras and it just Kinda stuck and now they have cameras everywhere including inside the locker room so when he walked in last night after they won in New Orleans. Oh you got it all your t right twenty points a chance at the end but I got three words awards for you. I was really happy for cousins. He seems like a genuinely good guy. Hi who got overpaid. I know they paid them too much. Money guys like to see if you get overpaid. Yeah Castle Delaware. Viking fans are really down on digs Monta run. Yeah it might be worth every a penny he seems you know. He still drives a van that he inherited from his grandmother while he's like married first time. Yeah he's one one of those guys so I could see them winning in San Francisco Rams Fan from the time when I was a kid so I hate the Vikings. I hate the Vikings because of when I was a kid niners. The niners are the team that I raised rang. Hey but I also I hated the Vikings in the seventy s because they would always beat the rams when made them in the weirdest ways when it makes a little complicated for us as we used to work for John. Lynch's Dad. Yeah so we know young John a little not well but we know him. I hardly know him at all. And he's a good dude I met him watch and And and so it's John John Lynch even know who you are. That's a good question. Did I think so just because we were there for so long. But he wouldn't be. It'd be able to pick you out of a lineup. No no no. We haven't this discussion the other day. How many bill? Bill MacDonald Ni- discussion yet. You lineup the current Laker Ross. Kemp till toddler John. I walk out and stand in front of how many of them know our names. Lau were you would know better than I. I don't know what your interaction is as I mean I've been on on the team plane. I know you guys sit in the way back as my mom used to say with the station wagon you sit in the way way back which is still great. Yeah Bill Bill. Immediately goes is zero zero. I think he's wrong. I think coups would now. We've known him covered you know from. I think Lebron would know 'cause he's super smart. Yeah yeah he is. And then. My guess is Caruso who seems pretty perceptive yet would would probably know. Jared Dudley knows who we are. Do you think they would know. May from Media Day interviews you. The answer is zero's were some memorable media day anarchy as a one person. The one person who might is Lebron. Because you're from Ohio. You mentioned your mom. I say hi to my mom yeah. He's a sponge and he's super smart so believe it or not. If one person was going to get it it would be. You would be Lebron. Yup All right so hang on Friday. We're doing a block party.

That's how fast track is next Mason Ireland. ESPN LA all right. I official fast track of Twenty Twenty Mason. It's an Ireland show for the brand new season. The Premiere episode and John C Miami of Ohio Leads Louisiana Zhanna right now seventy three in big trouble. No I've only five minutes to go in the second I've got were Niamey. Plus fifteen th that you have minus V. No I have Miami plus fifteen. I'm in great shape in Europe Lynch side of the coin. I win my first bed of twenty twenty the other side of the coin. Miami collapses. I'm competing against you tales Miami Collapses Laura what is it did you hear tales. Yes so that's Laura She's new congratulations relations figuring out how to turn your mic on. which was an issue the other day but are how long you've been here? I going on two months going on too much. Why I I just meeting? You haven't been here for two months. Okay good good. All right. Aren't lost. Track Greg. Got It right okay. I'll start with this coach. Oh fifty year old Ed ordure on is maybe the best coaching story in all of sports this year leading. LSU To an undefeated record thirteen now your number. One ranking spot as the favorite in the national championship chipped USC head coach. Oh yeah but. They didn't think he could handle being the church head. Coaching passed him over. Even Lsu was rumored to Tom. Herman to replace place less miles before Herman decided to go to Texas and LSU settled for coach. Oh yeah as their second choice. It was hard to see this coach showing up. He was ten in twenty four right at Ole miss in his first head. Coaching gig Nice runner. USC He went six and two at USC before being passed over then six thousand two at Lsu before almost being passed over again. So I have a weird question I want you to listen. This for people who've never never heard coach speak pay attention to his voice. This is his actual voice. Greg give us a little coach. Oh everything's online and whatever things on the line I believe in a team but you know we don't make the game later this. This is an important game for us. Obviously to get women WanNa go when we take it a one game at a time. Okay right. So here's my question. Do you think ed or girons voice. The fact that he sounds like a cartoon character held him back in anyway. Anyway or do you think it was strictly as record. That kept him from getting to the top sooner than he did. I think his voice was pardoned. I do too too hard to take serious right and there's a little bit of being easy to caricature and let me point this out. He is a great rain guy. Great Guy and what people like we say this about Clay Helton clay on a great guy and when somebody is a really good guy for whatever reason you think will. Maybe he's not tough or he's not serious but can you imagine. USC would love to have right now and Lsu. If they had had Tom Herman Tom. Herman went seven and five this year. Yeah I mean well. He said coach always very easy to be happy for into root for now that he's working thinking about coach. Oh two is he's. He's a an unbelievably great recruiter right unbelievably good recruiter. And by the way if you've ever seen the movie the blind side yeah coach. Oh plays himself in that movie. He's the one who got Michael. oher gap the kid in the movie to go to Ole Miss. He had the inside track. Both of his parents had gone to old miss so he was a legacy but coach. Oh plays himself does a good job as chat all right in. The world of fitness brands are increasingly employing digital tact tactics to to attract new recruits in the classes that succeed in bringing strangers closer together seem to be doing the best among the developing field. One class has emerged as more extreme than the others others. Certainly a name. I'll say at once it's this. It's the skinny bitch. Collective now controversial highly selective. It's a British exercise is reserved Class reserved for the elite Russell. Bateman is behind it. A former writer turned personal trainer. He claimed the name of the female lonely fitness group was meant as a term of endearment a former. SBC member emphasizes how difficult it is to get in. You can't just turn up. I'm pretty sure they looked at your instagram. I am followers. You have to email. Say exactly why you WanNa go etc Why do we have? Why do we create these elitist gems and exercise programs and doesn't Abboud Z.? Jim Actually started defeat. Its purpose No no here's why you do it. Creating the illusion of exclusivity has always sold this. Did you watch any of the documentaries. He's on the fire festival. Yes the one in the Bahamas. Yes that was basically watch both of them. Yeah I did too. That was basically if you haven't seen in. There's one a Netflix one Hulu Lou. What this organizers did he was a con man was basically got the hottest models he could find to do a commercial saying? We're all going to be at this party and it's GonNa have concerts and exclusive waterfront accommodations. And it's GonNa be great and then just took people's money and never produce result right. I was an unmitigated disaster. People showed up down in the Bahamas. He tried to save it last minute. And it turned out to be a bunch of dodd matters fall prey to exclusivity and they try not to. I think it's so SNOB. I didn't go. Well hold on you do it and you didn't even know okay. Tell me where I do it. With your Ram season tickets. They date the soldier the highest level of access to get you the best seats in to get you into clubs and stuff like that and you paid more for it because you you knew you. We're getting exclusive benefits. I told you long time ago. I said once you got into business or first class you would. You'd probably get into everytime coach to Costa Rica right but I know got it now. I'm aware of it and I was able to use miles to fly one time but I won't. I won't pay for a lot of people will. Yeah I know a lot of people well when you get a taste of that lice. Oh frigging expense. And so that's why it's I don't think this gym is in is necessarily going or this program. This exclusive program is going to be the any more helpful or better for you than you would be. Just going to Gold's gym in. Venice bought the fact that you think it is right. Maine's they can market it and it's not and you can get you can sell the exclusive Jim in La now Ucla Hills for anybody can join right. Yeah Yeah it's Pricey I'm trying to think if there's there it's more like can you get in with an elite trainer like the Lakers strength conditioning coach. Gunnar Peterson has very practice. That he trains Kate Beckett sale and Jennifer Aniston and that you know that world of people right But so but but he produces unique results. When I'll tell you one thing I I also think an element of this is the idea of being in a class right up because there's a there's a group energy that happens when you're in a class whether it's a yoga class or God bless you twenty-three-year-old women who are going to a soul cycle? There's a vibe that happens when you're in a group or in a class and it sounds like that's also part of the appeal here fouls chack all right amaze name. Leanne Ashley is a thirty year old instagram model. That until last week had a live in boyfriend she no longer does. Because because of an Apple Watch nailing says quote one day I was home and he was washing his truck outside. I saw his Apple Watch going off buzzing in buzzing and buzzing egg curious because they saw a small square that looked like a picture of a girls but in underwear so I opened it she. She discovered he'd been messaging girlfriend of several months side checks his ex and that he'd been meeting with multiple prostitutes. Joyo hello So here's my question. Let's say you're a guy listening to this right now and you have an Apple Watch okay. You have an apple what I do. Would you continue to keep it or would you get rid of it. Knowing you your private life could be exposed At any time not necessarily that you're cheating like this guy did right but it's very easy if you take your watch off and throw it on the counter and you people over that they could see things that you wouldn't necessarily want the MRIs nothing interesting. I can tell them either I at the slightest bit interesting. My wife has all my passwords. One has all my passwords and vice versa. There's nothing going on but got greg would you Do you have anything to hide. Get rid of the Apple. Watch snow I can put my phone down and put. She has my password to my phone whenever she wants right. I would think though if you're listening to this and you're like this guy and if you're if you're if you're messing around technology can get you tiger woods. You know big mistake should never an apple watch. Would've done him in. He would have been caught years earlier. No one got. I forgot how to do. The data into that goings. New Star. Liner capsule could not dock with the international space station after a software glitch caused it to launch into the wrong orbit minutes after blasting off on. Its first test flight. I was Boeings. Chance to catch up with SPACEX NASR's other commercial provider. NASA has opted to shift on how it operates instead of owning the hardware. It now hires private a bit. Companies to take over NASA has ordered Boeing and SPACEX billions of dollars to develop made in the USA solutions. NASA says that by early next year they're going to be launching American astronauts on American rockets from American soil again for the first time since the space shuttle shut down in two thousand eleven now NASA has been exploring space on its own for years. Is that a good idea to privatize our space program. or The upsides downsides and how important is it for us as humanity to continue exploring space. If you study the history of space exploration what you learn is it's not necessarily conquering occurring space. But it's all the things that we've gotten from it. Yes for example titanium was invented in the space program and now we use titanium for safety ours ars in your foot and then my golf driver and you know every everything else So I have no problem with either of the things you asked about. I have no problem with them. Privatizing privatizing it. I think that that means you get all the best ideas and you just you use the open market to to find out who has the best stuff yup and yeah I would continue to explore space because other people are going to explore it and who knows what's going on up there. There may be a whole alien life form. That's looking at US ready to take us out like in the movie movie Independence Day. We got to be ready for these guys ready. Exactly yeah the things that have been invented because of space stu- stuff you don't even think of like scratch resistant. I glass land rights or the cat scan or led lights a bunch of different kinds hypothetic shoes. All kinds of stuff has been developed. Because I think it's important to get out there. I personally think it's important that we get to Mars. Heck Yeah I wanNA meet the Martians. Yeah I I know I want to figure out if Dennis Rodman is really from this plan. I'm pretty sure there may not be life there now but I think there was life there. Heck yeah might be right now might be a mason in Ireland going on on Mars. How does that change the world if we find out that there was life on Mars? I'm glad that it happened when I was older. I don't want to be. It's too crowded down here already. I always always wonder what it means. Wouldn't it bring everyb- like I always think if like a An alien race landed on the planet. Yeah don't you think we would all have have peace really fast. No wouldn't we all be on the side welby overcrowded more male than we are. Now fighting. Earth You know we'd be fighting them. We'd all be fighting getting the same battle. One that is Independence Day right we all we all got together all right more fast next for you Mason Ireland. ESPN LA yeah Rolling on with fasttrack in Ireland Steve False Tack Mace Win The NBA released the first round of all star voting results.

Mason Ireland ESPN. Yeah it was a great trip. Great great break. Look who's here. It's about the way I wanNA. I WANNA point some out. Yeah so The Bob Miller awards are coming up at some Lamar assessment. Are they tomorrow. Okay so I voted each vote. I voted for Allen's Lihua and Lakers talk as best sports talk show in L. and yet he didn't get nominated that so Agu nominates. No no you will you vote and there's three finalists. There's three finalists. We make the finals. I think we were kept out because we've one too many years in a row. Is that right so we're not even a finalist. I don't think so but I don't know nobody told me pretty sure they don't know Wayne allyn switched to this microphone. The phone over here is that microphone is useless. the 'cause we we win that thing Willie Max getting like a lifetime. Achievement was old enough to get a lifetime achievement award. He's older new Zoeller me is. He really seems so young because he like he's Peter Pans and effort. That's true he does so Alan. How're the holidays for you? Good great man. A Lot Yeah got a lot of these games. John Working more than I think anybody in. La Watch the one One advantage I have over John. Is The road games. I'm just sitting here John. Well although Al and I will say this that over the years we've had many hosts of the pre-game show including Steve Mason There was Dave Shore. There was the cabinets on the floor. Sadat Sodano did it a couple years travis to every year travis all the aforementioned people every one of them it's a weekend I'm not working due to games you didn't we're GONNA weekend. I missed I was allowed. It was in my contract. I was allowed to miss two games right plus a weekend. No I worked the weekends. I worked every game except for two new that year. Alan have you missed a game this year. No and I definitely don't have a leash to miss any games so I will be good for you that we desperately need berry was such a hard ass about that. I was like not allowed to miss. I was allowed to miss two games and that was By the way breaking news involving the Weight Allen we wanted all that year the but that was that was twenty nine maybe not getting the contract and twenty nine. It was twenty ten. We didn't have an eight nine and ten did we. We know we didn't have but the year they lost to the Celtics Twenty nine ten season that that season was the first year we had the year they wanted against Boston. Right Right I'm okay so there is this if you if you don't guess right away. Did you hear the news today. That one of the Lakers is going to be in the same contest. Yeah Okay Mace. It's not necessarily the person on the LAKER roster. You would think you know this yet. I do okay No I I don't know fries me Will you know there were people lobbing Caruso. I know it's Dwight Howard. He he wanted in two thousand eight. Why twelve years ago he was in it in? Oh seven Oh wait and would that one of the longest between we should look this up Greg. You'll you look this up. Would that be the longest between winning the passages probably well. You're span to win it. Will you know they were years ago. And this year they were lobbying that the the the official dunk roster has not been set. But I thought Rachel Rachel Nichols had a great idea. Put Vince Carter in it. Fantastic right now would be great But I would. That would be the longest between winning the dunk title. Well and it also Carter is the only guy ever in the NBA. He was drafted in nineteen ninety nine so he p played in the nineties he played in the ought Ziashi paid in the two thousand ten's and now he's played in two thousand twenty only player ever to play in four different NBA decade. That's crazy and good for him. Yeah Yeah and you can still dunk with with authority. Are you surprised John. Dwight Dwight soon this all star game. I'm not I do white has been at. I've said anybody. He's asked me the biggest surprise of surprises more surprising than their twenty nine and seven more surprising than Anthony Davis playing later defensive player of the year than Lebron and with this renewed energy I thought to white might be good. He's been great day as and last night to another example of it last night they blocked twenty Mitch shots and five of them were blocked by the white and Mace. He probably had another six or seven that he altered that you know. He made people adjust their shots. So He's been he's been the best surprise on the teams you know who won the slam dunk contest last year. Either view any three of you. Do you know who was here. Was it sack. Zach Levine. No no because he doesn't see loan out his knee. Oh that's right. He was who did win last year. Right exactly that's a great question. I'm trying to think. Is it a name that we would know. No one of those eastern conference teams. NOPE team is it. Is it like someone like Derek Jones. Ah who is it. Hamadu Diet Diablo. Oh Yeah Oklahoma City but That's Aww you actually could put the roster of every team in front of me and I wouldn't have got it wasn't him. Yeah yeah that's not. That's not what matters so it's not a it's you don't necessarily make your name. Why don't you remember when Shannon Brown? Everybody wanted to get Shannon Brandon and but he was offended by it. He'd like guys don't want to be known. Just as a dunker you know they look at it as like limiting right. It's kind of like when you're a character actor how beat being pigeonholed into one role. Right right so They they th some people don't go into the dunk contest because they don't want to be labeled as that that's interesting 'cause I mean think of a back in the days you know it was Michael Jordan. Dominique that was I. I know they were more than just dunkers. But it's just amazing that that's the perception of this today back in the day to three point contest. Will Larry Bird I mean they they. I think okay Appreciated this The All Star festivities at least clay Steph. Still do the three point contest. But I'm surprised that you can make a name for yourself By one in the dunk contest. If you're Hamadu dealing by the way that you know Dominique Wilkins one five years apart. He wanted ninety five one thousand nine hundred for Dwight. That'd be fun to see Matt Win. I only can. I can only think of one laker ever to win it. You guys know who was one lady won the Slam Dunk Contest. Yeah now he wanted but he was on the sons. When you want right this guy wanted in a laker uniform on really Greg did you know before you look it up? Is I care. Oh I didn't realize he was in it. Oh you looked it up now I did. We Stop Balan. Yeah who isn't coby. Coby coby Oh my gosh. That's right and he did the I. I forgot that he did it. The Clipper who won it before Blake Griffin yet in front of you. Now I got in front of me showing. No the clipper that wanted before Blake Griffin wearing sweatpants wearing long pants. Andrey is it Brent Berryman bear. Oh yeah that's right Brent Barry did it yeah I forgot I. It's so funny. I guess it's not important anymore. I forgot Kobe was even in the slam dunk contest. I think it's not important anymore. I think it's fair to say what I would do with with the slam dunk contest. And I've said it many times YEP is if you go on Youtube and type in amateur slam dunk contests some of the dunks. That guys are running around around. The country are spectacular should at least be an amateur division so wait a minute. How about this though? Halftime at a lot of these games has gone kinda stale like occasion using. You'll get like the. She's still doing her job at half. Red Panda Red Panda. Yes you get back from a knee injury. And she's still kicking her head. Quick change with the clothes. Oh that's good that's good but how about this okay. You have a tournament you do it all over the country Yep and then you do at all thirty. NBA Cities You have the top ten dunkers come out at halftime that that that finishing the tournament and you pick one team then you have a dunk contest contest with those thirty guys and the guy who wins that gets one entry in the NBA dunk contest when people talk about it all the time right so you have all the NBA players. Yes and then this guy that won the tournament and I said to somebody at the NBA. I would probably win. I said why not and he goes well. The players wouldn't like the spotlight being offered them. I go I don't don't think so. I think they when you watch like Alan last night at the game. A guy hit a half court shot for one hundred grand at the end of the. Yeah the Mandalay Bay a big shot yeah jackpot so Mandalay Bay puts up one of the MGM. Hotels usually does at the shirts. Mandalay Bay puts up five thousand dollars a game and it just gets progressive throughout the year and last night it was for one hundred rand and throw a baseball pass. He shot his regular shots Jolla shop. He did a jump shot. His name was Evan Brooks. He was from La Habra. Greg I don't know if you can dig it up but Michael and I actually interviewed him at the start of the fourth quarter. I don't don't know if that's in the system or not. But we found him and and talk to him now. He's is kind of cool story so he lives in the Habra for Christmas Christmas. He bought his brother two tickets to a Laker game and his brother invited him. So we you know. His brother was thanking them from getting a cool. We'll give for Christmas so they went. They walk in last night and the Lakers. Select that shooter at random which you WANNA try and he says sure his brother. I tweeted needed it out. If it's the last thing I tweeted if you go to twitter account you can see the video of it. A they gave him a shot at it he steps up he nails it and the guy that he hugs is his brother who couldn't believe But the point was going to make was that. When that happens the Laker the players are normally really happy for that guy? I think that if a guy in amateur guy came in for a dunk contest and did well was there. One time when a guy did the behind behind the head lean back and throw it over the mascots too. Yeah Yeah it's a place but Iraq and we asked that guy we said we said. What are you GonNa do with the money? He said I'M GONNA pay off my student loans and helped my mom. No that's great and we're quick what he would probably get after taxes. What do you think sixty? Yeah yeah take forty three good bye. Congratulations Evan Brooks for good job man. don't spend it all in one place. Sixty thousand dollars doesn't go as far as they used to. Oh you did you fat okay. We'll play when we come back okay. Cool Mason Ireland. Alan Sleep is sitting in the star. Dr Of Lakers Talk Mason and Ireland. ESPN LA ESPN LA Mason.

Mason & Ireland (HR 3)

"ESPN LA Mason Ireland. It's all happening fast track in a half hour John There's guy here by the name of Erin absolute and you know we always say Aaron Absolute Erin Name Yes given name on his birth certificate Erin absolute deserves a bunch of the blame check this out the rams have the worst offensive line in football for the year according to pro football focus left would be difficult to work into a rams preview and what we're did they give you prostitution excellent word it's called the mind of Mason we call it the mom and the morning show gave me the word for this week yeah we try and give me a word that we are of one point one now gotta give some credit to the niners their defense is an absolute monster and they are legit grams had been services for a year before he hits the free market and twenty twenty all indications are that the rams and Ramsey will do a blockbuster extension after the season hey it's the mason for Mason and Ireland every day at three o'clock sharp Parnu time on ESPN LA where we are tearing up afternoon drive in trade for the rams defense the rams acquired shutdown corner jalen Ramsey from Jacksonville on Tuesday that allows Wade Phillips to lock up a wide receiver Julio Jones and yesterday all done you're listening to Caspian Los Angeles all right so The morning show every week I do a feature for the Rams pregame show San Francisco Forty niners on Sunday a career worst day for Jared Goff he threw for just seventy eight yards with a QBR. And I'm not kidding acute man coverage then he can dial up the pressure on Matt Ryan the Rams Defense which was already pretty good just got a whole bunch better jalen Ramsey loaning out prostitution are eight so I let me think prostitution who they play there in Atlanta Atlanta I don't know how you got this in the seventy fifth and Brian Allen is number thirty one out of thirty three centers the rams gotta figure out a way to fix this offense of line in the end then there's the rams offense after Jared Goff's best performance of the year at Seattle he follows up with a disaster versus San Francisco he is getting and time for the mind of Mason or the mob as we call it for short a three game losing streak a devastating run for the rams and they got a weapon from the four hundred twenty two yards of offense per game this year Sunday they manage just one fifty seven but less need at a busy week pulling off a game changer Mason and Ireland tattooed on you you get to come in and ask a fast-track question excellent that's happening today that's having today that's an excellent life choices tackle Andrew Whitworth ranks thirty second among tackles this year that's middle the Fact Rob Haven Stein is seventy four out of seventy five offense of town because that means there is only been one tackle worse in two thousand Nineteen Among Guards Austin Blythe is seventy second out of seventy six and two meal these people say I'm a dreamer the only here is Steve Mason a dead last in the NFL in sacks and they have allowed the fifth most passing yards could be should be a good day for the offensive line the rams are only assertive probably has to be internal now this is a very favorable matchup against the Falcons get to the quarterback is not their strength in fact don't forget Mesa in Ireland it's all happening every day at three o'clock sharp our new time here on ESPN LA and the ESPN APP prostitution all right let me hear it I had a right here time to see what's rattling around in the mind of Mace by ha cannot say that I am not putting that in the Rams pre-game never know three-point favorites but I say this is a big bounceback week if you WanNa make the playoffs this is the spot you gotta win give me the Rams Thirty eight twenty no that was that was totally awesome you kinda cheated by putting it at the very end no he didn't actually say it he's alive that live edited an edited out it will not be in my pre let's say the rams have the worst offensive line in all of football now let's get to the quarterback prostitution Jerry long term or is it going to be a case of prostitution it's hard that might come on John Notarial but Mason I'm show wait wait a minute what what context did you do it that way just by itself is a drop no what was are they going to sign Jalen Ramsey the first of all we're talking about Zion Williamson I thought this was interesting so Zion Williamson I injured his knee I have a thought on why this keeps happening okay remember he blew out his shoe yes duke okay he's too heavy mace okay he's to eighty five and constrained meniscus he said what somebody told me what they're not telling us he's got a strained meniscus and Nike is concerned about his weight and live and I think he's about six eight yeah that's too big that's too much weight on your joints and I think he's going to continue to have injury issues if he doesn't play So Adam cut it unfortunately wow but I gave it a run Darsur gave it a run yeah on your oh that's right yeah probably the morning shows doing all right John we could circle back around to this that's probably the closest is that the closest cop designed Williamson Barclay Yeah Yeah except lighter there's never been a player with those statistics in NBA history he's the second heaviest NBA player behind Bobo on he is dead and do less work I'm all about Kirk Levy because they don't have to do anything for three and a half minutes so do less work is what you're saying Yeah Oh excellent I just can't figure out a way to do it just right in the middle you know that thing is like way too long anyway right in the feature for the pre-game show people shen of power and quickness so but he's gotTa play Lighter Barkley did it Barkley got his you're down and became a hall of fame they had like two and a half minutes in you may not have noticed exactly I don't I don't hear the early parts of the pre-game show if you're telling me they want him to use this opportunity to get some weight off of him so he doesn't put as much strain on any yeah whereas what I'm being told or Nike could make a shoe that doesn't explode it's not John you're right it's too long because it's very really wanted to be shorter behalf that long but it's all right in the middle this was when Charles Barkley came into the league he was this to in Barclay eventually slimmed down I think he has to play I think Zion has to play at about thirty to forty pounds designs got a little more embark who is a better shooter but yeah that's in terms of a of a of a body type that's absolutely the closest comp yeah and Charles slimmed way down he got his way down in Zion could could afford to I mean Zay like an offensive lineman he's gotta play more like a linebacker centers constantly have foot and leg problems whether it be Yao Ming or Sam Mbui or embodied or and you're the one guy who never had a you know like he Barkley was I partially says he's about six four Zion's about six seven six eight you don't trouble was Kareem because he was a Yoga Guy Karim was tall and skinny but did you know anybody who tries to play at two eighty it's man that is a very dense man but I think about it what and now your enemy planes at that weight right and players in the NBA for the first six weeks four to six weeks it's GonNa make a big difference yeah all right don't forget on Sunday the rams are in Atlanta Choson kirker there to do the work I'll get it in forty five seconds next week perfect okay fine you wanna go that short forty five seconds let's just keep playing up the bit yeah all right cool if not I will not let that by the way at you have to admit that thing was so long to almost fell asleep like a minute here's the thing in what is really really a do or die game I mean I think if they lose this game though the air comes out of the season I agree because they've got a bunch of injuries now keep Toledo's out troy hill is going to step into quarterback Josh Johnson the third is out he's uninjured reserve Taylor rap to help this there you have it well then Max's point there's never been a guy who puts that much stress on a shoe that had that combination early game was Pelicans and I forget who but that was that was the TNT double header. Yeah I actually think the Pelicans are going to be better this year they're going to be pretty good but I without him our last in the league in sacks they are fifth-worst against the pass I've a feeling jared goff is going to have a big day and he needs one right about now he's just too big yeah and you know I wanna see him play so I hope that it kind of takes some of the shine off opening night because he was going to be one of the in the in the double his knee and more people we talked to his knee is going to limit them for the rest of his career but that doesn't mean he can't come up with a big game or a big play every once in a while and maybe he'll come up with one Sunday right well and also he's the favourite to win rookie of the year But I'm going to be Lakers clippers and then Malcolm Brown probably out that means rookie Darrell Henderson will get some snaps and it sounds like todd Gurley will play sounds like Todd Gurley will play in that game but I there's going to step in and Safety Joe Note Boom Gone for the year rookie David Edwards Rookie now to that offensive line which has been awful so far this year last year again I just don't think that guy exists anymore do you yeah I think that for whatever reason it wouldn't be over they would still have a possibly getting but Atlanta's what one in five one and five and they've underachieved in almost every game they're one of like three or four teams that has two wins in the PAC twelve south so I think that I think we're stuck with chip for another year of course you it was a hot head coaching jobs or for big major college jobs maybe he doesn't WanNa leave Stanford but now they're so bad the when Jerry Goffman under pressure so if the rams should be able to figure this out yeah should work it should work the falcons for everybody that says Todd Gurley went to college yeah that's right I don't think we're GONNA see Todd Gurley from the that UCLA has beat Stanford Football and eleven years. Wow and the other thing is I think that David Shaw may have missed his window David here that I don't think he's going to be at the top anyone's listening more to you I don't I frankly don't think he's been at the top of the list for a few years roadlog how about your Bruins last night boy and rain continues here's the funny thing there now in the conversation for the PAC twelve south and they don't pressure the quarterback and here come the rams who they've when they've had trouble jared goff is their offensive line stinks it's been rose bowl that was the that was sort of the peak for David Shaw and they've they've drifted down ever since he was nine and four last year nine yeah I thought we'd we'd be able to get out of it but now I don't think so enduring Thompson Robinson actually that good yeah he did he did look good I lost a an over under bet on that game but I think he's now the days of him getting twenty-five touches a game are over yeah the days of him with a twenty all purpose touchdowns in a year those days are over by the way ucla all he plays versus the brand of football being played now in the NFL right he doesn't run that like wide open west coast offense that everyone's running as as go to chase center getting ready for Lakers warriors and this is one where we're not going to see a lot of the The Lakers who are expect you want no Danny Green Know Avery Bradley no region Rondo no Quinn Cook you know what that means green light for Zach Norville He has played for he made the South Bay Lakers last year after a local tryout invite people show up he made the team and five the year before they're three and four this year I don't think he's at the top of of NFL teams especially not the brand of football yeah you had twenty four hundred twenty four for the first half and they had twenty four in the first quarter what but there was no reason to think they were going to do that the they've only done that once all year right mash mouth guy and we are not in that era right now in the NFL we are not in smashmouth era the it is much more finesse game as much more an offense like cliff Kingsbury there was a minute there where he was going to be one of those guys if you go back to two thousand fifteen if you go back to twenty twelve he went twelve and two on the Stanford's really bad and DT are was supposedly not gonNa play until they actually got out to the field I was expecting him not to play yes supposed to be the backup and then the first time one and a half let me expand on that a little bit so if you take Lebron and Anthony Davis on the floor at the same time Yup in this preseason been on court together for a total of sixty four minutes okay so if you do that on a forty per forty eight basis like like than it is an offense or Sean McVeigh's or CAL Shanahan's than it is an offense like David Shaw us all right coming up for you in fifteen minutes is fast track cut to make room for a guy named Richie hearn who played in the last game and then they cut reggie to make room for Marcus Allen so they're using that last spot on the roster to kind of reward guys net efficiency would be a there's this thirty one how which is why people should be genuinely excited about Lebron orval strikes again yeah so I mean not even to White's plan could be a big night for Kacie B Yup and you know who I like so far is uh it Friday ads right Mason Ireland Espn La if you're just tuning in John Ireland is in San Francis- this is brother Kostas Gupo he's been playing really well so now he'd probably winds up at the South Bay Lakers yeah most of these guys and a half I'm getting all this from NBA advance stats right so they have a net efficiency of thirty one and a half a good the official list with the list of all the people were resting today yes all right no Lebrun Yup no Anthony Davis not white Howard no Javale McGee acres they are going to be a force from now through the end of the next three seasons by the way you know the that general manager surveys lighter weight so Steven A. Through in this nugget at the very end of I take today happened to hear it has something to say about signed we'll data tip from somebody it's like that but in terms of a pick and roll this is monstrous one of the wood the greatest pick and roll duo since who've been around for a nice nice are you earlier in the in the show I gave you those those numbers that are pretty staggering that the Lakers net efficiency is plus thirty eighteen forty three games averaged eight points giving them a reward tonight they're letting him play in an actual Laker game he grew up in Vegas he went to Stanford he's Bay area guy it handed the ball to Javale McGee who dumped it you have to pick your poison and I'm not sure how teams are going to defend this these two guys these two it's more athletic wear both well can get to the rim where only malone was getting to the rim for the most part was sitting jump shots but both these guys can hit jump shots exactly one hundred twenty two points a game and give up ninety point six that's where I got that number thirty one you can't garden with one guy he got doubled and gave the ball to Anthony Davis on the wing Anthony Davis got doubled and he just like he was dropping an apple in a bucket forty eight minutes what would it look like if they're obviously not gonNA play all forty eight minutes but in the playoffs you would come close they would average who stockton malone maybe Stockton Malone would be that would be the gold standard Greg drew me this when he's like yes so they're gonNA put him on the big club tonight and look for Marcus Allen to Jack up a few shot what about John Stockton skid cut he was cut yeah to make room well he was actually mystically be the leading score in the Lakers but I'll say this I said this to you a couple of weeks ago I think for the first time in his career Lebron's going to totals this year are going to be in the neighborhood of twenty four points a game ten rebounds a game and probably I think he could lead the league INA said average a triple double now that's not a overly bold statement by me is career averages are twenty eight eight an eight so all I'm saying is he's going to get to more assists and two more rebounds a game but I think the scoring number because of probably comes down and I think Lebron John Anthony Davis they I mean they're just there's never been another Laker do oh maybe Kobe would have been this way in terms of putting up others receiving votes you there sleeping on Lebron I don't think I think anything Davis the shine I think Anthony Davis might might coin I win my bet on Syracuse other side of the coin I lose it Erin Call it tools sales nice central hall of famers who are going to be together for what we think will be at least three years assuming the Bron- completes his contract and ad resigns with the very nice life decision by Aaron did anyone try and talk you out of it no that would be impossible deep berry white soundly and he has gotten Mason in Ireland tattooed right on his index finger excellent so as we always say here if you get strack we are joined by Aaron absolute who got a Mason in Ireland Tattoo on his index finger John it is very impressive so I think he's GonNa have eleven or twelve assists a game this year all right coming up next for you is fasttrack Mason and Ireland. ESPN like I'd here we go and it's time for Haynes the correct answer is Michael Haynes there it is joined the raiders mid the One thing I've noticed is in and I mentioned earlier that everybody's showing that highlight of Lebron flying down the lane and throwing that pass over his head or any greed highlight that was the nice to you thank you thank you got excellent pipes all right one side of the coin let's see is up seventeen to six on the one side the England in two thousand twelve or was it Michael Haynes coming from New England to Oakland in one thousand nine hundred eighty three I'm going to say to leap the favorite to win the MVP was Jaanus in the second pick was Anthony Davis Lebron James was among the squash excellent there you go Aaron it's to you okay so recently jalen Ramsey was traded to the rams during the season who was the last elite cornerback to be traded during the season and let his team to the Super Bowl in the same year I guess I think one of the Nice your your guest in our house and you're immediately betting check it was Aaron got the coin flip right we should have him open the gifts for highlight of the game the other day Ryan said it's one of his all time best okay so my favorite I light was when Lebron had the ball at the point and he dribbled left and so in two thousand and four K B o Man Willie Brown coming from Denver to Oakland in nineteen sixty seven a key to leave coming from Tampa to yeah I got one stock them alone yeah that's what they're that's what they're looking for I think they're going to be better than that because you have to Zach Lowe Bell South Bay Lakers yeah and you know along with a handful there maybe a guy gets a little run tonight named Marcus Allen no relation to he season let them to the super bowl so we're going to eighteen where he enlisted Hayes shut down the Washington redskins and only held them to nine point say go check I write mace or do you want to go you want me to go ahead okay Kyle Williams is a youth football coach in Philadelphia he knew he was dangerously close to breaking the rules think it might be Dion Dion Okay I'll give you a couple of choices because it's not diaz was barely coming from Washington to Denver older than seven prevent a team from going up by more than thirty points Williams said quote less than two minutes left Saturday morning when his youth football team the golden bears went up thirty two nothing the rules of the Keystone Sports League which features kids Mike Errands more nuance point which was let the second string kids play earlier in the game and then rely on your starters Egged over dislike for Phoenix arrived server in an interview on an Arizona Sports Radio Show Donigi devolved Tommy Nunez who is the group supervisor boy still scored however putting the team up thirty six to nothing now Williams is facing a possible five hundred dollar fine I understand the the reasons why but I I think you should let this guy slide I think he did everything he could to get that a five year old boy got the ball he ran towards the end zone as Williams ran along the sidelines repeatedly yelling for him to fall down the would've repeated that almost four MBA ref Tim Donigi admits a son Spurs playoff series was quote unquote afford this season ever started that any coach or team exceeded thirty points this would happen let's say you're the League commissioner do you go by the rule and is I think it puts San Antonio at an advantage question obviously Donigi went to jail sir fifty months in jail all that kind of stuff the hammer and nails life some of these kids are going to go on to lose to Nick Sabin Seventy three two zero you might as well who is to always throw those kids who don't normally play early in the game that way they don't jeopardize the game towards the end so a better coaching job by the coach poor kid to fall down I will say no penalty area what do you think will the rules a rule but as a former coach I would tell you the best thing that for the series and was always pointing out in the tape sessions of things to call against Phoenix in things to not concentrate on against San Antonio and he said suspend this guy or you're giving him a pass well why do they keep playing once it was thirty points will you keep playing but I guess you can't run up the score you gotta just do you think it's possible that other NBA refs have shaded things not based on a gambling but based on their dislike of opposing owners coaches or players. All right there's Michael Thompson a little love his answer thank you if you'd asked me beforehand what would Michael Thompson say right I don't hold it against this little kid for score and you can't ask the kid to go in and not get find and get a two game I think they should let I don't think so I don I read Dante's book he was kind of a rogue official who had a huge gambling problem but I will say this I think it's impossible not to have personal biases I mean all these guys grow up watching certain players searching certain teams certain coaches search fine now we have a guest commenter Michael Thompson has just walked in he's been listening to fasttrack unlikely you want to weigh in on there and I had the same situation ball up in Lake Oswego with my son she could team by more than twenty eight points and I blame it on the worst defying teach these kids listen in a two game suspension this is a huge deal in this league that they want sportsmanship and all teams were warned taste that good coach tell all second third string is in just basically go three and out the rest of the way and that that teaches the kids not to try to best that's just ridiculous possible to separate your feelings about someone and how you officiate them I'm not saying that it's necessarily because Mr Odom is the only Los Angeles leg to win the sixth man of the year award what current Laker has the best chance to win this year oh did I think for guys I'm not blaming it's hard to separate your emotions sometimes from what the right call should be so I think it's just human they didn't have a sixth man of the year award in the eighties if they did Michael Cooper would have won it several times because he's Michael Hooper was tailor-made over analyze him everything he did was a penalty if he scratched his head in an UN unorthodox manner he got a technical foul I absolutely believe that risk amendment appre has a premeditated agenda Aaron what do you think I think the -solutely do if we take our minds back to receive wallace because he was a fiery player referees would you know I more fasttrack coming up in two minutes own need for an award like that I I'd have to go back and look I think they started it in the mid eighties because if I remember correctly Kevin McHale did win at one who's a Dunkin had problems with Crawford Crawford these these rivalries or these dislikes these resentments build up and it's the leader in texts that year was Rasheed Wallace with forty three so yeah they they did not like she'd no I do think it's I think it I think it does happen Erin hd you all's check okay everyone will like this question since nineteen eighty three can get back on track he thinks they should sign Antonio Brown in an interview with one of five point three the fan in Dallas Irvin said where we might find help I don't care I don't care about media relations or a public relations nightmare maybe we should go pick him up for a week or in the back of your mind you know if you're a fan of Gregg Popovich maybe you cut them a break and if you don't like pop maybe you blow a quicker whistle but no I don't I don't think anybody during the gender in your hit one of the great stats of all time Mace one year the guy with the second most technicals in the NBA had twelve and the dog in reverse. Yeah Yeah I Antonio's Brennan's probably already been on the phone with Jerry Jones and the Dallas cowboys yeah I think that's the best role for Kuzma and not to correct your job but I did look it up and the first year was nineteen eighty-three to surprise Michael Cooper didn't win it either yeah he mm-hmm and rape so technically the cowboys could sign Brown and play him until that investigation is complete we all know that Jerry Jones due to the close it close it out then it never would have got to thirteen and nothing clay and trace played on a team up in football that used to happen maybe twenty eight to nothing but I really said the cowboys are not interested in signing Antonio Brown John Nobody is going to sign Antonio Brown this year I nobody a to end quote. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said last week or this week that the League is still working on its investigation into Brown and claims of sexual harassed Sell his mother to win a super bowl do you guys think he would consider bringing in Antonio Brown Aaron you first Jerry Jones has already here but I think Michael Cooper would they started that award earlier I without question excuse me I mean I think he's going to be in that role coming off the bench I think he's going to be one earlier had they had it but but the now you're correcting John I'm mean because I was shocked I was the energy I think he's GonNa find open shots I think Kouzmines is going to have a big year and I think it is as the Six-man what do you think are always the cowboys have lost three straight games after starting the season three Oh just like the rams former cowboys receiver Michael Irvin has a suggestion as to how the teen and are eventually going to try to make people stop doing it. Netflix didn't say exactly how they were planning to accomplish this and they didn't say when the crackdown would start consider bringing in Antonio Brown more than likely he had Michael Irvin go on TV and say get a balloon yeah that's good. This is me her hallmark password so I think I share some passwords with my mom but but she's the only one and by the way I think it all balances out in the end for example I pay for everything hey for Hulu I pay for net flicks I pay for CBS all access excuse me he's got a

Mason and Ireland [HR 2]

"The Rams are three and Oh home the Tampa this week Mason and Ireland what is going on. It's all happening and every week we get to talk actor. Johnny Hecker the all pro punter from the ramseys presented by first five California dot com johnny among being an excellent punter is also the father of young jet who is one and a half so he's right in the middle of jets I five years talk read saying it makes everything better johnny congratulations for three and a man how you doing. I'm doing great Maith Island. Thanks guys me on three now so we were talking about that. There's been a lot of nitpicking even by Sean I mean he he has a show on our station and he was on last night saying that he you guys definitely could do some things better but overall. If you would've told me a month ago Johnny that you you would have started the season at Carolina home against the saints an ad Cleveland and you come out three now. I take that no matter what it looks it's like what's your kind of overview of where the rams sit right now yeah. I think I'm right there with you. I think being able to to learn the lessons that we're learning you know early on the season at three and now is going to be you know huge success down down the road and I mean the NFL season every when you can get is it is monumental especially when no gets to the end of the year and you're looking up thinking all mad if we would've won this one this speed implications but sitting here at three and now we can't be too down on ourselves but you know like you said there's a lot of nitpicking going on through hungry team but we know how we can play and we have standard set for ourselves and expectations that I don't think we met yet so you know we're hungry to just keep getting better at really up. We lost another for second. Yeah just Greg in Yup. Get him back three three now and I think they're going for no. I mean I think they I think they should go to four no johnny back. Yeah sorry. We lost you there for a second but it sounds like you'll you'll you'll agree with Sean that there's room for improvement but three and three Oh right absolutely absolutely and and we know we know we have to get better. You know our schedule is only gonNA get harder as we go through season them. you know we're just doing everything we can to improve every single day you get that one percent better so towards the end of the season where you really hitting our prime. You're listening to Caspian. Los Angeles Rams Punter. Johnny Hecker is with us so yeah. I'm one of those fans. It's like nervous every week. Johnny and I'm I'm looking at it and I'm seeing the offense doesn't look quite like it has last year doesn't seem as explosive explosive. What are you seeing on the offensive side the offense aside? I'm usually kicking into a net. I know I see I see you kicking right right but I mean what what I'm sitting is is. I think you know solid outline player. We have three receivers that are capable of taking over you know a game at any moment and just key contributors and selfless players so while I think the production has not really been there. I think that we're really just kinda. Learning and a and like Kosher McVeigh said we're just we're GONNA do everything we can to keep improving and put ourselves. Get situation so I think we have a great mind calling plays and very capable bodies running low the plays that we're going to continue to improve so johnny I'm so used to Greg's aligned being automatic and that whole exchange with all you guys being automatic matic then when he misses one. I'm actually shocked. I mean I probably shouldn't be every kicker. Nobody no kicker as a perfect season but I'm curious what that's like for you you if you if you see him miss one. Do you know right away why he missed it or you just as shocked as me. I'm usually the shock as you. I mean there's there's definitely things that you can get the flight of the ball. You know if it's not flying end over end. Ask You something to do with contact but man kicking in Cleveland was difficult and I think now from that distance the ball just started out right in the wind just pushed it and it was a deal where you know how do you how do you started at the middle of what it had a chance to go in but it really difficult place to kick and Greg is still in my is the best kicker in the NFL. I think our organization feels the same way. We're never going to shy away from putting him out there. I know that he really is a weapon for us so johnny. We're new doing afternoon drive here on ESPN La. I don't know if you know that or not. We've been here just a couple of weeks now. Okay okay breaking news to me. Yeah Okay so you're here though so so we have to slogans that were working with one Mason Ireland it's all happening and the other is Mason Ireland tearing up afternoon drive. We sorta go back and forth. Do you prefer one over the other. I liked the inflection on it's all happening but also tearing up the afternoon drive. I mean that's just aggressive tone. Better people traffic GAM ride home are either one of your good with either the second one you're going up afternoon drive excellent okay right up the afternoon drive okay so I was watching most football fans. I watched a ton of college games on Saturday and I saw at least this hardly ever happens to you because you're like all Perron grown really good at it but I saw at least three punts in college football this weekend. Just completely get shanked like eight yards up eight yard punt five five yard punt when that happens what's normally the reason is it. Do you drop it funny to you. Kick it off the side of your foot. If you in those rare are times ever shank a punt. Why do you go? Why does what happens? It's it's the perfect storm of just everything that can go wrong with a plant usually dug on those I mean I'm not. I sure if you're you're bringing this up for a reason but I I did have a negative for yard park. My Senior Year of College Wisconsin. I was rolling out to the right so I was already kind of facing gene. The five line dropped the ball hit the side of my foot straight out of bounds and marked adopter negative for and that way but I didn't even know that right yeah fun fact you'd happens everybody. You can wait a minute. How can it be negative for it? Went straight sideways. It just went straight to the side straight side with yeah. It's it's marked from mark from the line of scrimmage so I mean it was technically forward like six or seven yards off my foot but so were you playing for Mike Riley when that happened. I was Russell Wilson was the quarterback we got. We ended up getting beat thirty five nothing because I don't feel bad about it but they'll play a blow to calm my confidence okay so we know Riley a little bit he was an assistant at USC when we started years and years ago and he's really one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Did he lose it with you or did he. Just say shake it off and go back. What was his reaction? I think I think he was kind of mystified. The go backwards he really wasn't too upset that I could tell my go-to upset and I I was I mean I'm always going to be my toughest critic but the the lumps you gotta take it a specialist and get out there and make the next Rep your best so this is. Is this your day off. Is this your day off the week. This is yeah about to tip the guy that just wash my car. Here at beautiful car washes get home to my family. So what do you you do.

You got a text the word roast to four zero seven zero five to get an invite. That's text the word roast post to four zero seven zero five October eleven commerce casino. Why would anybody have anything negative to say about me? Lindsay Lindsay Theory is here reviewed Matthew Berry moments ago singing praises she covers the rams for ESPN AND ESPN La. Have you caught up on sleep yet night. Games are tough. I do a lot of night games on the Laker Acre site. I don't know how you guys do it in the NBA. I do one week and I'm commission for day slept for three hours after that game the other night and got on a plane of course quarter delay over in Detroit because I'm a slave my airline miles right so can't get us reporters yeah yeah so caught up. I got a good night's rest field ready ready to go. What does that week four now four now you're saying during the break that you tend to agree more with Mace than with me we we have different takes on the I say when I looked at that schedule Joel and I saw the saints I thought that game was a coin flip? Because of how great they were last year I thought at at Carolina in Charlotte and at Cleveland against the new look browns I thought somewhere in those three games loss and if they got out of it three and I didn't care how locked they got out of it three you know but Mason's worried and you say that you think there's some things in our clicking yet yeah. I'm with maize on the drive here. I was actually going Gomez. He's going to get it. You're not you're not down on the team but it's okay to be critical. Things and I think the offense certainly leaves room for improvement. I was really curious curious to see what they're going to do against the browns because they had a nice pass rush but also the browns didn't have a single starter in the secondary which to me said Okay Jared Goff's GonNa go out there and absolutely absolutely tear it up with his receivers and the rams just to this point haven't been clicking on offense until late in the game at which point you kind of ask yourself okay. A defense wasn't as great as it has been. Where would the rams be and I get it three no need to truly panic but they're not being measured anymore on? Are they three no they're being measured on this is a team that can go to the Super Bowl and win the super bowl so the goal posts is kind of moving yeah you know there was a lot of talk on the the NBC's broadcast about about Cleveland putting six guys on the defensive line which is what New England did which is what the bears did last year which is even what the Lions did last year Matt Patricia Tricia did how described that dynamic and the way Sean mcvay is trying to work around it well. I'm really surprised that Sean mcvay hasn't really really kind of found a workaround yet just because that is what he saw last year especially from the Patriots they had seen it before but the Patriots are the ones who hadn't shown it and then brought the super bowl so sean McVeigh had a whole off season to try and figure out. How do we beat this but I think there's more things than just six guys up front that are beating the rams? I think that that offensive of line while they're very high on those second year guys Brian Allen and Joe Boom. I don't think you can expect them to step in Phila- Roger Zaphon even John Sullivan while he might have been declining physically mentally he was still very very smart did a lot of things for that team up front so I think there's a lot of things kind of working there and it also includes the usage of Todd Gurley yeah your article right now that's up on. ESPN DOT COM addresses todd gurley comment mcvay made last night that he is according to Sean not on a load management program but fourteen carries throw into him out of the backfield. What what do you make of the stance that the rams appear to be doing where we're all seeing something somewhat obvious and denying it all the way? I'm begging my head against the table when I read this stuffer here this stuff every single day because at one point. It's you know he's on my carefully scheduled monitored auditor workload during training camp one minute. Sean says he's going to practice every other day during the season todd later that day says no my practice schedules exact same. You guys have been there haven't would you in paying attention will then the next day doesn't practice so it's just kind of. We're circling the wagon here in every day. It's a new saying over kind of how they're managing aging todd and now they're not it's not a load management issue but if you look at this nap percentages last year he played an average of eighty five percents of the snaps week one through fifteen and now he's down to averaging seventy percent so this is your all pro back. This is the guy who's carotene the last two years if this isn't loan management than now the question really is why Sean mcvay not going to his star player in the fourteen carries this week but he does not seem like the explosive Todd Gurley. We've seen the last few years well any they're. We're not using them in the passing game which is where he picked up so many of those yards last season and it created such a dynamic scheme for the rams to be able to have todd hard coming out of the backfield catching passes to be able to hand the ball off to them and play action so to me like that's the part of this offense. That just looks amiss is that you just don't have todd girly doing his thing and I think when Sean came here in two thousand seventeen so much of the offense was predicated. I sound just like Sean was predicated around Todd Gurley Lindsay you sent out this tweet during the game rough outing for Jared Goff in his first nationally televised game since the Super Bowl. The narrative on him is not about to improve approve after this. I didn't think was great but I didn't think it was necessarily a rough outing. Why did you think it was? I think it because they get off to such a slow star and when you look at it Jerry under a microscope that not it's not necessarily fair but it is the way it is. especially has one hundred ten million dollars guaranteed sure I- Hi jared performed great last year Thursday night football perfect passer rating that Monday night game terrific and then the Kansas City game is that you're talking about Kansas City game yeah but when you go back to the Super Bowl that's the game everybody watched. That's when everybody just saw this deer in headlights look from Jared Goff now. This is the next prime time game and they wanna see was that just a fluke was that a one time off from him. The Super Bowl and the thing is jerry just didn't really look in command through the first half and through the second half give him credit because obviously stepped it up. I see one more of those fumbles were he's. He's got his arm cotton and yeah but I don't believe that us that more more than more than any quarterback case keenum did it last night. It happens but I believe so you could say it's Khalil Mack and then you look at Gotha and give them credit because he was getting hit quite a few times. He is tough. He never goes down with injuries but the bottom line in is when you become a franchise quarterback you're making hundred ten million dollars guaranteed I think the expectation grows right now if you look at his qbr down there he's seven shoe like that's not where we want to mentioning Jared Goff and it's all connected right so the the running game hasn't gotten gone which means his play action where he's normally at his best doesn't have the same credible. The offensive line isn't giving them a clean pocket because of they get three new. PC really do sound like the sky's falling following and the night but but they're all they're all connected. It's all one thing that's why the offense just in total isn't fire right and the thing is it's because because the expectation they have already said over the last seasons is so high I think for me where's or thirty five point. I know we're not here to watch defense but I perfect expectation really just because of how brilliant Sean mcvay is really just man use a lot of adjectives superlatives describe this team that's days but I expected did this offense to come out and really have some well oiled wrinkles that they added in the season to beat the men fronts and letdown yes so far all right still thirty no though all right Lizzie can you hang around. I can okay so we'll do. We'll do another thing with Lindsay allowed to talk about including. Where is the first loss on the rams schedule Yeah I? I don't think this week well. Maybe it is I don't know waiting to Mason Ireland. ESPN LA I Lindsay theories here are rams beat writer for ESPN and Mason Ireland. It's all happening here comes Tampa Bay Lindsey and their team with Bruce Arians. They actually played pretty well last last weekend. Kicker Mr Chip shot and they lost to the giants. What do you think the concerns are? The Rams would have with the bucks if any not not many looks like a wind has been been playing pretty solid owner todd bowles and don't forget they haven't Dhamma can sue blitz a lot can and sale yeah we still have if you look at the window Lindsey you'll see we still have a consumer care out and ESPN todd bowles loves to blitz. That's the only concern concerned blitz fact in that Carolina game he blitz sixty six percent of all defensive down so that's going to be another test for the offensive line and the offensive line might again be without Austin Bay there right guard is our second year starter so the rams do need him to come back because the interior where that line is not great without him. Denby had a couple of a couple of penalties in that game a couple of air blocks couple of air blocks yeah he he had he had some issues plan in place of Austin all right so let me ask you guys this the schedule now kind of turns after Tampa the the rams go up to Seattle play a Thursday night game against the seahawks then they get the forty niners then those are two divisional games Arizona's one is not good but of the other to Seattle and San Francisco who the rams more worried about in your opinion or who should they be more worried about well. We'll have a loss including a home loss to Pittsburgh but the niners surprisingly or three now the looks to me haven't looked right yet this season so I don't think the rams should be to worried even though it is Thursday my primetime spare. It's there yeah that that gets to be rowdy but the rams have done fine handling those situations they were in the superdome last year. They just one in Cleveland the forty niners while they're three now by this week which really weird time. This is the first week of buys coming up yeah so so for them to have a by is really. They kind of lose momentum when you're three now and I don't think that that's really a team. The rams should be too worried about yet either. I can't talk to them you can't they played the Pittsburgh steelers Mason Rudolph they were on the road against the bengals. They played it was the bucks already Yup Bucks Bucks Bengals and steelers so I don't you it's kind of hard to tell are the are the niners for real or they just kind of playing you know if they get those those two games if they get the tour talking about at Seattle and the niners in the coliseum they have a decent chance to do what they did last year and start seven or no because because after that they play the falcons who have really been consistent in the steelers who look broke angles in London the bengals and that's that's McVeigh against since one of his assistants right and so they have a decent chip they were under under mcvay. They've won both the international games right Lindsay. They have yeah they are. They're perfect it overseas. I don't think looking at the schedule the weight shaping up. I think they'll be fine against the steelers. I think I'm not impressed by Mitchell trubisky. Maybe Baltimore more yeah. Baltimore Gorgeous got handled by the chiefs pretty well didn't they bears engineers on Sunday night and remember the bears beat him last year. Mayors are week eight but the beep the bears offense. This season is not scaring me at all. Did you watch US matter you catching up on sleep. They looked good last night but they were playing bass. Key actually showed up three touchdown passes. It's hard to say playing the redskins. What kind of bench benchmark that is yeah? I mean you know the realistic the answer to this is they were eight no against teams in their division last year. That's not going to happen there. They are they're going to lose to the to the niners or to Seattle in one of those weeks. It's just going to happen. I would say they probably lose to the SEAHAWKS. Were the niners. The second time around is probably the seahawks because they're a team that traditionally gets. It's a lot better. The second time who said well then is the guys are going to need to play well in that game a week from Thursday because they've already got a loss in the rams in the niners don't their chances of making the playoffs if they have two or three losses in the first half of the season could really hurt them so we're going to show up for that game. You grew up in Seattle. I dead now the seahawks. I dead me Nargile were they. Were they good then they were not good in for a really long. One Super Bowl team was Shaun Alexander. How old were you in that I in college? I was just a freshman in college and do I remember that is because we had just won the National Championship Championship at U. Dub playing volleyball and then the seahawks came and still are thunder. They were finals. You're you're going to have the front page for the first time in years. We had the front page but then the Seahawks Fox knocked us off and go back and talk about bad referees at the Pittsburgh steelers won that Super Bowl and they might have I might as well wearing yellow and black well. I'm glad you brought that up because the refereeing has been. It's just been weird Lindsey there. Tom Brady sent that tweet a couple of weeks ago or last week that said I can't watch these games. There's too many penalties analysts and then the appeared to back off. I I mean how how much of this is a part of your reporting in when you're covering the stuff of how the officiating has been all over the map. I haven't really been doing too much reporting on it but I'll tell you even on Sunday night yeah Cleveland where it was just like flag after flag and it just is totally kills momentum of the game week one in Carolina it felt the same way where you're just the whole flow of the game is stalled because the flags are on the ground we had this conversation yesterday Masonite and in the NBA they talked to the rest a lot about managing the game in other words if there's a penalty on the left side of the field that has nothing to do with the play that went to the right. Let it go. You don't have to throw a flag on every single if a guy's holding thirty yards away from the play it doesn't matter but it seems like they're calling everything Vit- they are go ahead. No you don't have to do that and Kevin See for one of our reporters. Just came out with the story about how there's actually a call between the officials shoals and they were told some of these ticky tack holding calls. Let them go let them play which I would much rather see these guys play and have people left and right both both teams knock it in the calls have flags all over the field because it just absolutely kills does kill the game and the rams actually have been pretty good in the penalties -partment. They've only got twenty. The browns have been awful. It was awful. Bronze have been awful they they had so many penalties killed their drives and I tweeted at once and one of their fans went yes. Thanks for reminding us like we can already see it well. The other thing that I thought was interesting about that came that you were at. was that number one what was it like in the press box when they called a draw draw on fourth and nine people looked at each other like just happened that hadn't happened. She was it obvious Dan Laskey did a good job in the get up of showing this they ran the same when they had first and goal at the four to try and tie the game in the final minute they ran four plays all the same team formation and the receivers all the same routes in the same place four times in a row Freddie kitchen seems to be in over his head but it's hard I mean between between Freddie and Baker. It's coming WHO's actually calling. Some of those shots out there and you wonder a little bit was the coach maybe covering for the quarterback. Is that quarterback kind of going by the Sir Office. It's funny because I looked at the numbers on the pass block win rate and the Bengals line is holding their blocks for for two and a half seconds so lot of goes down to why is Baker may frown on the grounds why why is Baker knocking the ball off so it's kind of maybe a little bit of a a combination of things coming into play there and we should not bury the rams defense has been just fantastic outstanding they did a great job on the NBC broadcast on Sunday tonight showing exactly the havoc that Aaron Donald reeks in a backfield he was all over Baker Mayfield. It just went for one sack but he was is all over Baker Mayfield all night long by the way Lindsay you've been at every game he's ever played. Is it possible that Cooper Cup is better after the injury than he was before four down my mind my mind which it's unbelievable to watch it was unbelievable to watch him practice during training camp and think this guy coming off an acl injury but now to see him in the game. He doesn't seem to have lost any speed no-smoking first of all. He's he's in better shape than I've ever seen is so cliche to say right. He's bigger bigger faster stronger but he is truly in such great shape physically when you look at him he's fast and I think he must have spent the entire time just stunning cutting because he knows exactly where to be. He knows Jerry Nossa trust them on every single route and cooper just can read the field in fact he had that moment where Ah Brandin cooks was in the wrong position on the line and Cooper signaled him to get him in the right spot so that they could avoid an illegal formation penalty cook Cooper's quarterbacks meetings to he'll. He'll slip into there so this is just a guy who loves football now. I find myself asking when he's done playing like which who's he going to coach going to be. What's interesting is if you redo that draft a he was drafted in two thousand seventeen? He was late in the third round. He was the sixty ninth ninth. Pick I think he I think he goes late. First early second pack and it's funny I was writing a story about the the receivers the other day and all their salaries and Brandin cooks eighty-one million Robert Woods thirty four million of course over several seasons and then you get cooper copies on the rookie three million dollars poor guys making eight hundred thousand dollars yeah but you don't feel that bad form always makes me wonder what would have looked like last year had they had Cooper Cup through the playoffs option into the super bowl because he wanted without him. Yeah they came in one quarter of winning without him. He and Jared Goff have such a great connection outfield and that that's a question that floats around inside the facility to because they're very aware that that offense did not look the same without cooper so it's kind of what might have been so you've got a good feeling about Sunday yeah yeah good feeling about Sunday. Guys are GONNA start like eight no. I don't think that first losses come until they play. Maybe Baltimore awesome have become rams homer. Well they win win. They take the McVeigh's wins. That's why we can be critical of the offense exactly I'll leave you to I think three and three you are what you said. What your record says you Orlandi Bill parcells? Thank you for doing this.

There were some laker injury news. It started kind of trickle out today. Although the Lakers themselves have not sent any formal update of out yet but there are reports they the Kyle Kuzma could miss the beginning of training camp with that foot injury. He had Coosa out a tweet saying apparently the Internet knows me better than I know Oh me yes which would seem to indicate that it's being over reported but even if he did have to miss a small part of the beginning of training camp I wouldn't care joining ready for the start of the of course who's in his third year. He doesn't necessarily need training camp. I mean he's he's a good I mean seasoned player and and they has trained all summer with the team until he hurt his foot so I know he's in great shape. I'm not overly worried about mark. Stein who tweeted it. He also tweeted all signs point to Nike declining to match `pumas lucrative multi year offer to Kyle Kuzma reported here September Tenth Lining Up Poom Puma too soon unveil L. Kuzina as its latest star endorser. I actually think that Kouzmine could be the breakout laker earlier this year I know I know we're getting from Lebron. I know what we're getting from. Ad But I've talked to at this before those two guys both required a double team you train guard Lebron James with one person. He's GonNa Torch you. Yup and Clippers try to game last year to Guardian Davis with one guy. I think they use MANTRAS Herrell. Anthony Davis Drop forty-six forty-six on him Yup. You can't you gotta send a second defender and win. Those defenders come off. I think Kuzma is going to be the beneficiary and he's going to because coups coups on a lot of nights required a double team last year or he drew the other teams best defender for example. If they were playing Toronto last year quite Leonard would guard Kacoos when you know when he wasn't guarding Lebron and Lebron missed so many games last year Miss Twenty five games that a lot of times that main coups got the the a number one defender. Now you're number one defender has to go to Lebron you're number. Two defender has to go to the other one right and coups is going to get the number three define you know he's got knocked knocked down three point shots more consistently only thirty percents from three last year yeah but Danny Green didn't know any so pick your poison yeah either leave cosmo pen and he'll go right to the basket. We're Dunkin forty five percent from three last year yet. Jackie macmullan was talking on the jump yeah and she was making a point about when you match up the Lakers clippers and I actually think the reverse. Here's what Jackie said. The clippers are a better team well. They are and start with the fact defensively. WHO's GonNa who's who who's GonNa score against the Los Angeles Clippers? I mean it's it's incredible and the Lakers are going to be a work in progress. That's just the truth. Kawai Leonard is so much easier to plug in to any lineup then Anthony Davis you have to learn to work around Anthony Davis who by the way at the same time learn to work around a guy named Lebron James. That's a lot more complicated than taking Kawhi Leonard who skillset has just proven to be you just plug them in almost anywhere and he's going to be fine he just he just plans right into what they're doing and I would say the same thing about Paul George whenever ever you add a big especially in today's NBA and that is still would Anthony Davis is big. You have to learn to play with him. I just don't feel the same way about Koyi Wii the clippers I mean I think the defensive flip of that same thing you're talking about. Yes defensively WHO's GONNA score on the clippers defensively who are the Lakers using to stop guys on the perimeter how many Green Green Douglas Danny Green but he can't be in six places at once so can't play a lot of minutes either you get a load managed and and coups uh and Lebron just defensively last year. I'm sorry they were not acceptable. All right so here's the flipside of that WHO on the clippers is guarding a D. and Lebron right right okay so what Lebron and then let's say quite has a good game single cover Anthony Davis with WHO right Paul George Kannkerni Anthony Davis. He's not Tallinna know mantras tried to last year in eight hundred forty six on him. I every problem that Jackie and Brian Horse was the other guy on the jump with Rachel every every problem they just discussed you can flip the other way I mean we'll hear this. We'll hear this a lot and they'll be a season long version of this but these teams are very very close host. I mean the clippers and the Lakers are very very close and we won't know anything from that first night of the season because Paul George isn't GonNa play so we'll we'll get part of the clippers but we will not get the full complement of talent yet. Paul George himself personally hasn't ruled that out but I've heard everybody but everybody else at the clippers sing that it'd be it'd be highly unusual Ryndam either. I think Christmas Day everybody plays barring any unforeseen right so but every time somebody asks a question like Jackie just asked like a defensively our the Lakers can guard the clippers I I would counter with all right who in the clippers guards. I think on paper you talk about wing defender saved better wing defenders. They might be the best team I mean the Clippers Again Greg answer this question who on the clippers guards its mantras barrel and that's it okay last year. Anthony Davis is playing for the Pelicans not arguing with heroin. They're gonNA GONNA have to line up against him yeah. I'm I'm I'll take my

Mason & Ireland (HR 1)

"<music> ski what <hes> all right so the last day of mason gallivanting middle of grell. What do you want uh gallivanting around europe and i actually talked to mason yesterday when he was in budapest. I don't think i've ever talked to mason when he's been in europe europe and he goes over there a lot dirty little secret you guys don't talk that much no and like. We don't even talk when we're both in l._a. But the reason we talked yesterday is is where i want to start today. It's not very often that we lead the show with news about us but we are today for what seems like mason and i just a little background mason and i started doing radio together in one thousand nine hundred ninety ninety four. That's how long we've known each other. We we've got off and on and we've been at different stations and brian. We've been in every imaginable time slide and starting earning on tuesday this tuesday. We will no longer be in this time slot. We will no longer beyond from noon to three o'clock or for what we've been doing lately noon to three hundred thirty starting tuesday the station announce. If you've been listening in the mornings you may have heard starting tuesday. Mason and i are moving and we're going to be on from three to six thirty. We're going back to afternoon drive where we've been before and we like it. There and it's going to lead up to the laker games and and we're fine and we'll do well. They're a will cain who hosts a national show that you may have seen on t._v. Is now going to be on in los. Angeles canes going to be on on from noon to three so the lineups gonna go morning. Show travis ki l. z. leading into stephen a leading into will cain leading into mason in ireland. Now i know what your first question is. Where is sodano. Sodano is gonna come on after us so sodano is going to join extra purgatory at three o'clock so purgatory from today's sixth spot right so it moves from three o'clock to six o'clock and and then to donna will will do a show afterwards he may actually you just heard him filling in for stephen. A george may do even more aradio coming up. That's kinda yet to be determined and there may be some announcements for that so georgia's not going anywhere. He'll be on after us and so that's the new lineup starting tuesday. Now greg is coming with us greg we try. We tried to leave. You know your your wish was not fulfilled will cain is it's an interested in your work. They're not either nothing new so so greg. We'll still be part of the show the basically everything just moves three hours hours moves three hours everything right so if you're one of these people who you know just kind of grown accustomed to john and steve from twelve noon at your job or whatever just podcast i move your job if you if you listen to his podcast you just didn't get it a little later but what will be on starting tuesday at three now and a little background we we like to be honest with you guys so we're just gonna. I'm just gonna kinda. Let you behind the curtain for a second e._s._p._n. The actual company which is based in bristol owns two radio stations all right. They own a station in new york and they own a station in l._a. They own us so what what kind of precipitated this move is. They spend a lot of money. In these network shows. They sent a lot of money on stephen ed they sent him on a lot of money on will cain will cain has done very well particularly on television and it may it only makes sense for the network to to put will cain on in the second biggest market in the country when they own the station. That's why they're doing. The sodano didn't do anything wrong. Nobody did did anything wrong this. You know everybody says well. Why are they doing this. Why they're that's it were they own e._s._p._n. Us and they're spending a lot of money to produce use this team in the will cain show and they want those shows on in los angeles so mason going to three o'clock tuesday. Were were excited about it. We'll have more to talk about three o'clock tuesday now again. Being one hundred percent candid the only bummer that comes with moves like this is when you lose a local gl show a local afternoon drive show <hes> you lose some really good people along with it and we lost jae corrales. Who if you listen to this show. Is you know he's jason with the company one thousand nine years mason. I have jay's one of the few people that came from the old building. I remember they used to be next next to r._b.'s unlocked sienna over there and and see's candy when we were with kahlo s hanging out with with real wild and uncle joe benson. That's up building yeah yeah. That's how far jay goes and so people don't understand what j. does for this show and i'm back in here with him every single day and for him to not be there with me what what he does is what you hear on the on the radio besides the voices is him everything that happens else. That's because every time we play a game name that has voices or sounds and j jalen on his feet. He's he's. He's well liked the business and it's just i wanted to make a point of recognizing everything that he's done for for this. Show i called him. Yesterday talked to him for awhile he's doing fine. He's a raider fan. He's used to abuse but me and you now john. None michael funchess is coming with us so funny. It'll be working. The board welford the dodger for the raider fans right but we're going sixteen in regardless of j works here or not so we lost jae cross and and some of their voices that you're used to hearing are no longer going to be on the station of michael pearson. Who's just a great guy who producer donner shows no longer gonna be with us <hes> and <hes> we. That's the only bad part about the news. Is that every time you you do a move like this where you lose and local shows and you get network shows is you're gonna lose staff. Yeah sports radio was like sports. There are people behind decisions when coaching staffs gets fired tired or you know things happen and the it affects people and this is this is no different <hes> it's it too difficult business to work long time in <hes> and so those of us who've been able to do it for any stretch of time are fortunate and <hes> and they weren't the only ones it was. It was a sad day here yesterday because when when you when you lose a local show you lose and again. I'm totally candid here and this is the only time i'm gonna talk about it. You lose headcount. You lose staff. We had a couple of people in our social department matt matt and briana who you hear us talk about in the air all the time we've brought him on the air all the time you heard matt who they call shaggy in the morning show part of the show. Those guys aren't coming around anymore and up and so that's who i'm thinking about today i mason i are excited about the move will do well. We've we've been moved before we've been for there's a line if you had not mentioned mentioned anything to steve and just let him show up on tuesday and noone at noon and be like what's up right so we we <hes> we will the next time you tune in at noon monday.

He'll be here from noon to three mason and i will take over at three and we'll go three to six thirty. I sent out some details about this on my twitter page page. You can go to twitter at l._a. Ireland if you want to read up on it <hes> and if you don't we completely understand this is kind of inside baseball for a lot of you and when i can spend a ton of time dwelling on it but just know i'll mention the several times throughout the day that mason and i go to three o'clock starting on tuesday and that's where you can find us <hes> from here on out <hes> and <hes> we'll we'll still have our regular cast of characters brandon andy. I've seen going to miss a lot of shows doing laker games <hes> brian andy will still be here. Ramona is will still be here. You'll band still be here. You'll you'll hear a lot of those different people <hes> throughout but we lost a lot of good people yesterday yesterday that that that and that's that's the only bummer battle this so all right enough of that. Let's get to the regular show. <hes> we have a ton to get to the rams are done with pre season. They have to get their roster non fifty-three by tomorrow at one o'clock so probably greg during this a show. We're going to be hearing about some cuts. Yeah and the rams will will do that. The dodgers look terrible last night in arizona and in mm particular hint generaux looked really yeah and that's basically started the week on this john yeah we're finishing it on this and it's not good <hes> <hes> basically the he was the best pitcher in baseball from april through the end of july and in august. It's like he's exchanged uniforms with someone else. He's the one of the worst pitchers baseball <hes> he gave up. A season high ten hits ten runs. They let him up in the fifth inning. They had like four five hits off a monroe so get into that but i want to start with u._c._l._a. Who i think looked as bad as you can possibly look in year two game one of a coach's tenure and i don't know what to make of it but we'll get into it next u._c._l._a. Loses at cincinnati dis- chip kelly still. We'll know what he's doing because last night that looked look that look like is unprepared of a team as i've seen in years. We'll get into that ryan. Abraham will preview the u._s._c. opener. Which is tomorrow night ryan komo at twelve thirty <hes> we we the fez defecit coming on in the one o'clock hour our old buddy roy firestone's gonna come on at thread love that i'm so excited about that roy. He's got a new book out and royston ramona's podcast and by the way after today we we you know sodano is this is not gonna do this time slot after anymore so today were airing ramona's sterling affairs podcast in its entirety starting today at three thirty so all that to come up brian kennedy information. I'm john ireland e._s._p._n. L._a. mason ireland show brian feeling for me who gets back on tuesday when we go to our new time. I'm three o'clock tuesday. Stilling novica told them it would have been interesting so brian is as i've said many times on the show. I'm a proud u._c._l._a. Graduate greg is a big u._c._l._a. Fan so last night u._c._l._a. Opens this season at cincinnati and i actually had hopes for them because at the end of last year greg they looked decent. They were terrible in the beginning the us four or five games at row at the end of the year that team that looked pretty good. They were a good team. They actually you could see that. They were progressing thought gyp chip kelly and his first year it was gonna take some time and all of a sudden these last five games are starting to look good. I got some hope for next year and so <hes> greg said there's no ad ever bet any even mythical money on you at u._c._l._a. I bet mythical money last night a mythical money sponsored by the bicycle hotel and casino. We we do it every day around here. <hes> i lost two grand in mythical money but i don't even care about that greg. I just was shocked. At how unprepared repaired they looked and here's i i look here. I don't know i struggle with this and brian. I want your opinion greg you too. I struggle on how much is appropriate to criticize. Basically kids guys are playing like during thomson robinson in who is the quarterback at u._c._l._a. Had a great high school career in las vegas last year showed flashes last night looked really unprepared. It's hard for me to criticize in eighteen nineteen year old kid because i know he's trying his best but greg isn't it fair criticize chip kelly for not having him better prepared than that. I mean he during thompson robinson looked just off on yes. I think it's wrong to criticize a kid. I i've i i pride myself on not doing that any dodger or laker or anything like that but for some reason when it comes to u._c._l._a. Sports i just i lose my mind and i start and i tweeted something out and i said you suck d._r. What a joke. I haven't deleted. I don't know what to do with. I feel awful deleted or explain it this this is this is one of those things about college sports. It's like you do have to remember. They're not pros. We treat them like we. They are in in the sense because we advocate for them to get paid we we we we feel like a lot of these athletes deserve more than they're getting but the reality is they're not pro athletes. A lot of them are eighteen nineteen twenty years old. I think it's it's just like yeah john. You can be credited us. He was awful. He performed horribly as when he's not being paid. He's like he's in college. Well we we talk about college sports on the station asian and around the country and people care you can criticize the guy's performance because people pay to go watch and you you buy cable package so you can see these things and whenever i'm like people we'll make an investment it. Just it's should be personal like you know i for some reason u._c._l._a. It makes it personal but d._t. Are he had he was in the red. Zone twice and just dropped dropped the ball twice. It's fumbled here two fumbles. They lost both of them without being hit right and that's not chip kelly. You can't blame just drop fumbles in the red zone on coaching. That is a d._r. Thing i don't know if his hands are to just maybe just had it is everybody who has played a sport has had a day where you are just flat flat terrible right in everything you try is awful in. You know maybe wasn't a i. I'm not gonna lie didn't spend a lot of time watching u._c._l._a. Versus cincinnati <hes> forgot who who. I was working with today but you know the offensive line is in. It's the first time you're up against another team. There was a weird twists. Look like in three weeks i there. There's a weird twists in this game joshua kelly who is u._c._l._a.'s best running back we he was listed as probable for the game. We knew he had a sore knee so so it became fairly obvious after a few series and there was no joshua kelly that either either couldn't play or chip kelly just decided not to play him but when the interview chip at halftime the mcgrath the sideline reporter said what's going on with joshua kelly. Why haven't we seen him. He was probable and chips that well he hasn't practice a lot and we haven't been able to get a lot of his packages in there and molly said are we going to see him in the second half and he said we'll see <hes> so i don't know if chip what do you think is chip under any obligation to be honest about injuries. No i mean in the n._f._l. You have the n._f._l. Have two in college don't and so as as as is my understanding <hes> and so no not really <hes> but it but that's another aspect of it like if you don't have your running back and that's a big party off people think about chip kelly his asia have theo howard one of his best s. receivers. I didn't have garni homes probably the best corner on the team. Did you see people talk about and think about chip. Kelly is throwing the ball all over the place and this but you go back and look at those those it was really good oregon offenses. They ran the hell out of the ball. You can't offense it doesn't work. Let me give you some numbers and you tell me if it's fair this early in his tenure here to criticise chip kelly. They finished three nine last year so kelly got a pass. It was the first year but if you're judging by direction direction of the program i would argue city. It's going the wrong way. It's been ten years since he led oregon national title game since then he's he's been fired by both the eagles and the forty niners he's now struggling to rebuild both the bruins in his own career since two thousand fifteen his teams those three teams eagles forty niners now u._c._l._a. Have gone eleven in thirty three over that time he's been paid more than thirty million including shooting somebody e._s._p._n. As a commentator u._c._l._a.'s paid five point two million of that of the thirty million. He's now three and ten as the bruins head coach now brian. I don't want to be one of those guys. That says get rid of this guy one game into his second year. I think you need to give everybody at least three years but is it fair to the last night. There were penalties. There were turnovers. There were on greg on third down cincinnati on thirty seven thirty eight third and twelve wide receivers wide open wide open at the sticks just picking up first downs like they were candy which i don't understand because if you have those that much depth why are your d._b.'s not even near the sticks they need you. That's always there were five yards behind the sticks and having to come up and hit the guys and they were getting first downs without brian yard greg and i obviously are emotionally invest is dispassionate right in this in this case. I welcome that genuinely don't care k. in right so objectively okay because greg and are being very subjective lovely. Is it fair to criticise chip kelly game one into season two yes sure of course you can always criticize a coach and i think it's the trend in a where i would look at it as we used to. We would get on clay helton for penalties mistakes like that. You can control that. Those are things that your team as a matter of discipline ought to be able to <hes> to do the other thing. I just looked this as up the big place you question whether or not chip kelly's having the influence is in recruiting and i'm looking at right now u._c._l._a. Twenty nineteen football commitments their fortieth fortieth in the country. It's not great i mean i don't think you need chip kelly to be forty f- their sixth in the pac twelve dini chip kelly to be six in the pac twelve. You're paying them more than that right better than you know so i mean he used to say about chip. Kelly's oregon teams as well. He doesn't necessarily get five star recruits but once once he gets his system into place then they score points and run. Maybe a great they're not scoring. Points is that offense look terrific did and they said it during the game that <hes> chip kelly kelly when he was at oregon he had running backs. That could be a running back or wide receiver but this is a team. That's built around tight ends that can be fullbacks are tight ends. If you're basing your offense pence on tight ends that can be fullbacks. That's a problem you had three tight ends in that game. It's it's not the right type of but when you hired hired chip kelly do you want. Do you expect him to be able to be one of these guys. You're gonna adapt to any kind of thing because the genius of of his offense an offensive offensive mind is understanding how to score points not. I can only do it one way because we can only do it one way. It's going to take four years to get enough players who can work work in his system. Because what he's doing is a lot different than what the last guy was well what he used to do was pile up yards and pile up points and last night was not even close so we read you something. I'm from big lead. Which is a website sports website. I read a lot of the bruins were missing jesuit kelly theo howard in darning home thursday night but it wouldn't have mattered they were just straight out hustled out hearted and outplayed by mid major college football program. They showed absolutely zero fight against a team they should have crashed and it happened for the second in year in a row greg's affair. Yes it is fair they should they should have done much right away. The pac twelve is off to a horrible start dark garbage in arizona loss to hawaii in hawaii and now u._c._l._a. doesn't show up in cincinnati. If oregon loses to auburn tomorrow tomorrow we could. I mean it's like another year. Yeah another year where we're not kidding me and you lose the fresno state and and speaking of which our buddy ryan abraham dot com will join us next if you're not a u._c._f. Football fan and you root for the trojans. Stay tuned because we'll preview s._c. Fresno fresno state next brian kaminsky information. I'm john ireland e._s._p._n. L._a. That commercial break podcast is really worth subscribing all right. We talked about u._c._l._a. And how bad they looked. U._s._c. takes the field tomorrow night seven thirty at the coliseum and whenever we talk about the trojans we'd like to lean lean on her buddy ryan abraham. The owner of we are a c dot com. Are you a football dot com. I'm sorry ryan. Did i get that right u._s._a. Football dot com. Thank you and <hes> so thank you for coming on. I i'll do ryan did u._s._c. u._c._l._a. Game i did watch all the pac twelve games man i just. I was talking with gregg in the before we came on. It just doesn't look like it's working guy. I was a big advocate for chip kelly but something is not right u._c._l._a. Yeah i i agree and i'm wondering if it's too soon to to call paul kelly under the carpet but they don't look prepared. They don't look organized. They don't look like it looks like if you're if you're grading him on direction of the program. It's not moving winning the right direct. How's the wi fi over there. I don't know what it was like in cincinnati. We'll see the rose bowl <hes>. I don't know if you want the wifi. When the oklahoma i feel about you really shouldn't have told me about that and when we when we talked we talked about the boosted wi fi at the coliseum part of the renovations at anybody. Have i have latched onto. That is the great hope for u._s._c. Football well wait. A minute probably should so ryan. Let's talk about that. U._s._c. is a thirteen and a half point favorite tomorrow night against fresno fresno state fresno state was a pretty good team last year in your opinion should the trojans be favored by that much it was it was like ten at first and then moved with all the way up to almost two touchdowns and they went twelve games last year. <hes> jeff tedford is an amazing coach. He's the only coach the only b._s. Program that's ever gone from double digit losses assist which is what they were in two thousand sixteen that were won and eleven he took them to ten wins his first year and then twelve wins a second year so he went from double digit losses to two seasons of double digit wins. No one's ever done that before but they've lost a lot of production off that team. I still think jeff tedford coach team. There are much better on defense and he's known known as an offensive guy. They do a lot of their offense but i feel like they're going to bounce back pretty. This is gonna be a really good test. Good first step for u._s._c. because all the games are. We're talking the beginning of the schedule. This won't be pushed over but u._s._e._s. That's better athletes. I think that's why there's a thirteen and a half point. Favorites is interesting rienzi like some of these sometimes you look at these games. They become come kind of a referendum on how we look at these big legacy programs <hes> like you say if there's no reason necessarily to think that fresno state's gonna and drop off the face of the earth u._s.'s coming off a really bad year certainly especially by u._s._c. standards and has a lot of question marks about what team even looks like. What do you think explains explains the line well. I think you look at the talent there. It's it's pretty amazing. Still i mean we twenty four seven like talent composite index and their number four in the country behind you know ohio state in alabama and georgia i mean they still have a bunch of five star and four star players coming out of high school and that's makes it so inexplicable well how they lost seven games last year. It was that same kind of talent but i feel like they've made enough changes in the off season to fix some of those glaring problems the era of mason still on vacation but the air raid you love to talk about that. I feel like you know graham. Heralds gonna you know i think they're going to score a lot more points and it's going to be a much more efficient offense <hes> and then i think on the side of the ball. They're going to be better too so i feel like they've made. Some of the right. Changes will all come together and you know equates more wins. We'll we'll have to wait and see but they don't have time to kind of. Get used to things because the early part of the schedule so hard you have to start playing right out of the gate like it's mid season and we'll see if they're able go to do that all right the elephant in the room of course ryan and we're talking to ryan abraham from u._s._c. Football dot com is clay hilton. He lynn swann john is is described pretty much everywhere as a lame duck athletic director. There's new president at u._s._c. Lynn could go at any minute. Lynn is the one who hired clay and clay on a losing zing season last year at u._s._c. You're not allowed to have losing seasons. I think the only reason he kept his gig is all the uncertainty in the administration so let me cut to the chase. How how many games in your opinion does klay health need to win in order to keep his gig yeah i. I think it's more about if you win the pac twelve south. I think you have to to do that. Lynn swann was asked at the unveiling of the coliseum. What the expectations were he said winning the pac twelve and i think if you at least win the south which likely means you beat a really a good utah team in week four. I think that would go a long way for him <hes> keeping his job whatever happens on the athletic department so i think you win the pac twelve. Certainly that's going to help but like if you're in the eight and four don't win the south middle range. I think it's going to be really tough to do that because <hes> coming off the five and seven season. I don't think there's any kind of grace period. It's like you have to turn it around. It went now. If you think it's the most talented team in the pack twelve you made all these changes to make progress this year and you don't get up to that level where you're the the expectations are then. I think they might make a change but yeah. That's the big question going in john and <hes> we'll probably know a lot more after the first couple of games what this team looks like and which direction they appear to be going and ryan. How does what does the offense look like. I mean i know that we spent a lot of time talking about you know head coaches and offense coordinator and cliff kingsbury now graham harrell but like what are what should people expect to see on the field from j._t. Daniels from the running game from the passing game all of it so it should be less of a hero ball kind of thing we saw last year where it was like big player bust <hes> one of the reasons j._t. Got the job is because he was the most consistent he didn't really necessarily get more reps in practice but he would throw no more passes because he would throw schorr completions and keep moving the chains. That's something that's u._s._c. Offense hasn't done. I think that's going to help the defense a lot because if at least if you don't score you might pick pick up a couple of first downs but the short passing game really quick getting the ball out putting less pressure on the questionable offensive line at u._s._c. has i think j._d. Dan that made some pretty good decisions this fall. He's got a great receiving core to throw to and the x factor is gonna be how much the run game is incorporated <hes> in how how much they're used out of the backfield. I feel guys like steven. Kerr <unk> are listed as co stars both of them that can catch the ball out of the backfield and if j._t. doesn't see first couple reads open he might just dump it off to like steven carr in the flat and he could make a bunch of guys miss and make a big place so it should be more efficient offense where they're moving the chains and they'll take some shots but less kind of rely rely on that big play down the field like last year all right so you mentioned the wide receiver core it at the top. The look really good on raw. Saying brown looks really hey good tighter. Vaughn's looks really good this broom a koi story ryan. I'm wondering if you can kind of help. Explain it to our listeners. He committed to texas then he de. He committed he went. There said i don't wanna be here came back to u._s._c. Can he play right away like can he play tomorrow night. He actually enrolled at u._s._c. I then transferred to texas and then transferred back. It's really crazy. We've never seen that happen before. He's had this mysterious kind of illness that they haven't told us a whole lot about and we haven't even seen him practice in fall camp. They said they applied for a waiver to the n._c. Double a. to play right away. They did the same thing with chris. Steele who transferred in key was granted granted. He can play right away so he's actually listed as a co starter on the depth chart that corner but for brew mccoy. We haven't seen him a practice yet. He we haven't had the status of his waiver yet. They said it hasn't been approved so most likely since we haven't even seen them out there. He's probably not going to play this year but they could come back in the middle of the year. Maybe there are some time in the n._c._a._a. Said hey you can play right right away. I'm not sure if it would happen yet. They haven't come out there so most likely he'll redshirt this year and they'll be available next year but five star telling he was really good in high school and then someone that they could use because they like to use a lot of wide receivers often lasting for your ryan. Did the jack sears things surprise you. He looked good in the one game. He played last year against arizona state michael thomson. I talked about it the other day. He decided to put his name into the transfer portal. He wasn't going to start in front of j._t. Daniels at u._s._c. he did the jack sears news surprise you. I wasn't surprised that he was going to transfer. I was a little surprised he was fourth on the depth chart. He did look good in that a._s._u. Game and they simplified the offense for him. I think if they would have done that for j._t. Daniels he would have probably looked good too but project sears if he wasn't going to be the starter. He's going to graduate in december. I think transferring out makes a a lot of sense was he. The fourth best quarterback of the four i don't think so but most likely they knew he was going to transfer out so it's easier to put them there and i thought he might stick around in practice with the team for a while well maybe if one of those quarterback ahead of them gets hurt. He comes back but he's going to keep taking classes. He'll be on campus working out. He just won't be practicing with the team anymore. It's not a big surprise. I think he's someone that could go in the pac twelve and start for somewhere. I mean u._c._l._a. Look like they came in a quarterback last night. I was thinking the same thing that he he should just drive across the i ten and go to u._c._l._a. Ryan great stuff as usual. We'll talk to you again soon. Thanks good. Thanks for having me all right so we've talked about u._s._c. We've talked about u._c._l._a. What is going on with the dodgers particularly. What's going on within jenry you. We'll get into that next e._s._p._n. L._a. mason and ireland e._s._p._n. L._a. <hes> <hes> we talked a little bit about this at the top of the show but hinge in review who is greg's. It's safe to say probably still the favourite for the cy young award even though he's been awful if he's willing wayland. He's leaving the i._r._a. Trial right to yeah if he if he has a great september goes back to at least being somewhat good than yes <hes> if he if he falters if they keep playing him in september and he keeps being bad he'll lose it. <hes> review over in the month of august has just eat. He looks like a completely different. Ah guy then then the guy who pitched the first five months of the season brian. He's e._r._a. Had not been under two due since april twelfth. It was like maybe the very first two weeks of the season the last night he pitched just four into thirds innings this what greg was saying in perspective in his last fourteen and in two thirds so basically his last three starts. He's given up eighteen runs. He still leads illini era but it's now at two point three. I five and i was may twelfth. Not it's the first time it's over two since may twelfth greg. What's happened are you. I don't know he has just. I think he's overworked. He doesn't really see this much. Many in existed the most innings he seen and i think he keeps getting hurt. I mean the the dodgers aren't abusing him throwing augured sixty pitches and that's not the issue just he never pitches this deep into a season because he's always hurt for eight weeks he hasn't and now he's been so good deal ten for for the fake the fake i l is absolutely unnecessary listening. Yeah just give skip skip a start. Do whatever you gotta do but let him figure himself out and be good good in september so he's ready to go. I'm not here to body shame people but like he's doesn't seem like a guy who's built to withstand the rigors of a full season. Although he has david wells did yeah do you remember terry four yacht drink as much as what he does much as much feeling wells was sustaining sustaining himself in other ways but he he was so good early and he's been so bad in his last three starts and it's not like arizona's a winter world beaters matter of fact against arizona zona rio had been great all year yeah. He hit a below one e._r._a. Against arizona consul in tonight right yes and goslin has been very good good greg to your point. This is the second other than his his first season with the dodgers in two thousand thirteen when he threw one hundred ninety two innings this is he's already thrown more innings and he had us as a dodger yeah and he's thirty two so he's one hundred and fifty seven innings now through one hundred and fifty two in twenty fourteen so that's four or five seasons ago. You know he's younger. He threw eighty two last year one hundred twenty six of the year before that and four in two thousand sixteen right well so he he also i mean he throws six different pitches and he doesn't throw with very high velocity so he's throwing these six different pitches to location and so when he's not if he's throwing ninety miles an hour and he's not hitting his spot or he's using the wrong pitch and it's not going where it needs to go. He's gonna get blasted. Have we had any clips of of andy. Andrew friedman men like talking about him saying like you know. We know he's not looking but it's there. It's just on the inside. We just need to get it out like robbery that day. That's more of a dave roberts thing yeah. I'm sure that's another minute that starts because we heard that about kenley and it's still apparently still on the inside too much of it. I think with this. This is jarring. I think thing for dodgers fans and you know people like me have been watching all year long because they've gone so long without anything really substantial to worry about where you're emigrate. We talked about like you're making stuff up just to be concerned about but now it's two things if we use not review that changes the nature of the staff what you can do in the bullpen and if kenley is is not kenley that changes the back end of it and it's you know against a team like the yankees the astros these are not insignificant sports talk radio hot taking points points these are real things absolutely and but luckily for the dodgers that this is we are not even into september yet and all these things still have plenty of time to work themselves out. If we remember in two thousand seventeen the dodgers went on an eleven game losing streak at the beginning of september and everyone thought that's it the dodgers are done no team has ever made it to the world world series when losing eleven straight games in the month of september or at all season and they still made it to the world series game seven so it's still very much possible they could still get all the stuff fixed but now is the time i'm to get that would that would this year cost them homefield which significant they still have the best record in middle caught him. Probably they were tied tied with the yankees as of yesterday before the game so i just have to look at the standings the yankees are eight eight and forty-seven also still so so it's right they're all basically jockeying for for the top sprite and the astros lost eighty seven forty. It's all very very girl separated by basically one game or hayden forty eight for the dodgers eight hundred forty seven for the yankees so they have a half a half game review. I he looked so good early in the has looked so bad lately. It's like he's a completely different guy all right coming up next.

Though I mean I mean there's that whole Mason curse thing and I remember last week. We were talking about this game saying like you know. We had the feds on and he talked everybody into this. And if you're going to go to the game if they win it and you're there I would declare the mason curse over. Of course you went to the game. Not only do they lose but they got there. But I'm excited cited that you said something Ramona. This is a very good point by you. Mason was at a big game and they lost the Mason curses real. I got people sending amy messages on twitter. Saying some really mean things about you get mason the f out of the Coliseum. No getting mason out of there. What is he doing okay? I almost didn't didn't feel like it was fair to you messages. I will show them to you greg. Greg connects with those type of people outside of you the fans yet. Yeah well the ones who say mean things that is your following. You're following I personally following on the. Yeah the anger anger last week. He called and I was like just waking up and he was like I'm so sorry and I was like what and he goes. You're getting killed on twitter or something. You sat on the show and and I was like I am like nobody's even adding me Mike. It's okay I appreciate your concern. That was not sorry for saying happens. All the time have now based on his time not mine so I take that as a win yes mason. You are the problem. I think not the problem and when it comes to the curse game. They're not GONNA have a playoff game this year. So you can't ruin those playoff games last game in the Super Bowl right and I was at the cowboys. It's game we at the Super Bowl. I was super bowl. When did the Mason curse officially start? Oh apparently at birth there for some of the winds but then you also there for the most crushing defeats game seven. Can we just say shy of a championship. Yeah big game is going to be a loss right logic every single game. You don't wish championship there is going to be a loss if you were a nationals fan. You would have not been cursed this year. Yeah okay so amazing. Curse is the definition of confirmation information pious. If you use there is amazing curse anytime it fits the criteria for amazing. It's amazing curse. Show shake his confirmation bias. Scott absolutely they just absolutely got boat race. Yesterday Tara Lakers or not your phone. They're not for three and one. Thought about the Lakers clippers game. Yeah there was that one but I'm on a three game winning square when you leave it half and those are playoff games and those aren't big games. They need to be the big game like if you went to. Are you going to Christmas Day. Game against the clippers no goods from that. I'm not GONNA do. Are you gonNA go in March. They're going to be playing. Milwaukee I mean. That's a game that go. They're going to lose the playoff games. Let's not a playoff game but this but I will be at all the playoff. Ah Boy Oh boy you know if they lose if they go out in any round. That's not a championship. You are going to be blamed for any game that they like Mama says in this this whole twitter thing these twittering at you. Don't worry about it. I think it's like people say that. It's a real shame David made it. Reassure real at the roast. I'd a brighter. News Lakers win at San Antonio won fourteen four. They're not fifteen a two eight game winning streak. Lebron just Lebron thirty three points. Fourteen says four of seven from beyond the ARC He has been what he's been this year. Hashtag Vino now. Yes hashtag I know washed king but I think this this is like the Hashtag Vino year for him. This was like Kobe's year where he just was like unbelievable like everything was bad but Kobe was like he was thirty. Four are and I don't want to say how that your ended because I don't think I'm not one of those like load management people like Oh. His Achilles just died played too much now he just that happens. Sometimes People's people get hurt but he's like he's GonNa turn thirty five soon. Yeah it's thirty five season wow seventeen. Here's the MVP right now no question he's MVP. I mean if you I think honesty's a right up there and I think Luca Danni jets those the top three but I think it's Lebron of those. Three Janas gets hurt by the fact that he won last year and even though he's great it's a traveling trophy. Yeah it's a traveling trophy and the Lebron has the narrative hurt if this year yes he does. He's got the story story is in Luke does too but they're not leading the league right. And by the Way Casey P. has been really really good since avery. Bradley down the much-maligned Casey last night. Five of seven from the field three of five from beyond the ARC. And you know who just despises Casey P that they greg out Greg Birdman and the hoedown you guys you guys are all over. KCPT all the time. No okay yeah well yes. That's confirmation but you don't say anything when he's bad you know that's not true that if we if I go on there and I say that he's playing really well isn't that not not confirmation. I said not once but twice Casey P at the beginning of the year was a complete and utter disaster. He was missing. He was shooting on a free throws on L. on wears labs appraise so now beloved. Now since he's gotten into the starting lineup he has been really really good. Yes been good defensively. He's I've been hitting sixty percent of his three point shots he's been playing very good. Should be a lot of Kacie. P Love out there right now. There should be and by the way when Avery Bradley healthy he does Casey piece to stay on the starting lineup. It's been really good reload. Aby maybe shot really well. A kind of depends on what what every injury management is going to be like. Do you WANNA throw him right. Back out there to be guarding the other teams guard right away. I don't know we'll see soon as he's coming back from this But I I you know. I was talking about with Brandon Ingram the other night he was in town and he's having a good year for New Orleans. Great Great Hugh said of all the people on the Lakers. He keeps in touch with he actually keeps in touch with Casey pay. The most and I was like. Oh I didn't know you incase. EP were friends and he's like yeah. I think it's just a southern boy thing like you know Brandon's from One of the Carolinas North Carolina someplace into Carolina But they got along really well and it kind of made me realize like I don't think we have necessarily talked about Casey Pe- as a real life human being thing and players. Since he's been here like he's been like the object right. He's been this. He was the guy that helped you know. Get Lebron to the Lakers right. And he's the guy who keeps getting these contracts that fans can't believe or like it seems like he gets more and nobody really. He's just here because he has the same agent as Lebron or something right like he doesn't seem like a a person and finally he it was wasn't Intel. Dwight Howard of all people like called out everyone for criticizing Casey P and how how Dwight notice that case if he was getting demolished on social media. TV whatever it is whatever you want to say. He's always the guy gets you know kind of Criticized for not stepping up worthy of the spot. He has Dwight realized that and he seemed to kind of reach out and try to pick him up and say like the guys and now the guys in the team are all talking about it like like you know. He's really been criticized so like they're all very aware that he's the player that gets maligned criticized and I think that might be helping. He's like a person the now the guys in the team rallying behind him. Yeah against people are like I've already said it. He was a disaster beginning. He's made a lot of money for he hasn't been very good has not lived up to the amount of money that he's made a and now he's playing well okay Coming up next on a tough day. Hey Johnny Hacker Rams punter join us. That's coming up next. Hey It is Monday now. It hasn't feels like Monday. You not Monday. We're my arm I. It's not Monday at all.

What you're doing doing player joining us right now? Courtesy of I five is Johnny Hecker tank time with Johnny Hecker sponsored by I five. Your baby's brain doesn't require fancy toys or videos talking reading and singing are the tools you need talk read sing. It changes everything to learn more visit. I five California dot com Johnny. Johny thanks for coming on how you doing man. You guys aren't doing great Didn't get the win. Obviously that we wanted but got home got to spend some a quiet time today with my son which is always such an uplifting experience. So you know. I'm feeling good today. So today's an off day and you get to hang out with jet. Yeah we had. We started to go in and get kind of recovery lifting get the bodies move and try and flush out some of the you know the lactic acid builds up during the game for the for the real players but yeah then go home and then just have a a lot of quality time at home just going to shoot hoops. And then having a boy a great idea I relate to that like when you come home and you have a bad day and then you're like little little baby too it's like you Kinda you Kinda WanNa tell them about it. Do you believe what happened right. Like they're really not interested in absolutely they'll laugh I during the game or not during the game like I just had a feeling of man I wish my son. We're going to be awake when I got home. And my wife was saying the same thing after the game I was just such a UH calming factor. You know no matter what you do. They have no idea what you're doing for work anyways so when you come home. There's no such thing. As a bad day they love. You just want to engage you which is was what you know I five is all about so I'm excited. That'd be partying with them in the first place and you know it's such a true sentiment that I- I echo my everyday life. So wow what do you say about. How do you deal with that game? What was that like at the at the facility? I'm trying to think of how to even ask ask it. I mean I was at the game. It was a rough one. What what was it like at the facility today? Yeah I mean it was. It was a lot of business as usual. I mean that's you can't you can never let a team beat you twice and I mean you know you always you'll look at the teams record and the wins and losses. Don't show the scores. You know it's a deal where you got to put it in perspective man. That's an L it hurts. You have to kind of just accept it for what it is and of course the score being so lopsided and just Manziel all can be disheartening but You know coach McVeigh echoed it. And it's it's just a deal and we had to realize you know it's just one loss we can't let them Let them let the lingering effects of US getting down on our selves or being Unsure of or our ability of the team. Keep us from winning future games and I think we have a mentally tough group of guys that are chomping at the bit to get another shot at a a game. Here come this Sunday in Arizona on a sober excited and I think it's going to be a big game for Sunday Johnny. Do you guys talk openly about the playoff picture. Do you do you watch other teams. Look the standings or or what. What's the approach as you as you approach edited? Say he can. We still make this right I mean other has a team you know team meetings not brought up is such a week to week. mindset you know. Our focus is really on on the next opponent. But you know when we do. Have some downtime big. I spent time with Greg and shake our kicker long snapper You know we. We look at at a team schedules. And See. How things are shaping up so It's definitely something that's in the back of your mind and out of the team that you know we feel has a chance to be a playoff contender in one of those aims. You have in the back of your mind from the beginning of the season season. Kinda keep you have on it but he'll where we're at our destiny stone around hands and all you have to do is just just went out and and take care of business when we got Have you ever seen anything quite like Lamar Jackson. Oh Man No not really. I mean I've since I've been in the league. There hasn't been a player of his caliber. I think Yes with playmaking ability running the ball and being able to. I mean you see Russel Wilson Russell. Russell Wilson extends plays and and really stays back with the ability to pass the ball and then occasionally. We'll run where Lamar look into the gas. You first with the run and in break up something quick and then make someone miss the second level and busted for bigger game so Get to say that I've seen that before would be alive a eating credible. He's a real talent and they have a super talented offense around him. A bunch of big guys blocked tails off and it opens up it really good run game. We'll listen Johnny hard data. Come on but you got your priorities in the right place Spending spending the day with the jet which is which is Great And there is. I am not gonNA quit on this team I am. I am optimistic for For Sunday excited for the game. And we appreciate you coming on even though it's a tough day.

You gotTa have another opportunity to get better and grow and and keep stacking those days after letdowns and things about turnaround for you so jobs. We're not giving up as a team and I appreciate you you being behind us and we're like Brian. The thing's GonNa go where we take it so you know we're excited about the future all right. Hey Johnny thanks a lot man have a great week. Johnny Hacker brought to you by I five. Thanks when I. It's a good point. I like that. I like that Optimism yeah it's true like there's so many teams that you lose and you start looking at your playoff hopes and where you stand the eight percent. Whatever and then people kind of forget about you because they write you off and sometimes those teams like sneak back in because they kept playing a like your attitude back in sneak back back like it Mason and Ireland? ESPN LA Mason curse. Please Mason Ireland. ESPN LA and his fasttrack. Time by the way top of the hour is the coach. mcvay show less need is filling in for coach. mcvay veigh tonight as he starts to get ready for the game on Sunday night Momma one side of the coin. Let's see one side of the coin. The Rams Bounce back and win at Arizona on Sunday on the other side of the coin last night. carries over called in the air. Oh Yep flipping it. Yeah they're winning they're easily. They're winning. Come back and win by a lot. Yeah all right. I'm GONNA go first. Yes Hey macy Marie calendar's near me. Close which we just found out because Nevin called to put in a pie order pie right. It's where we get the Peiser Thanksgiving doc where we get the pies now so you can imagine the set me down quite a rabbit hole. Oh sure where do we get the pies now. So I'm googling last night best pies highs in the San Fernando Valley Maze are you a pie. And where is your favorite place. The best kind of pie that you can eat. Let me see I am Pie guy. Yeah in addition to donate guy in a donut guy. I'm sweet guy. I am a sucker for pecan Pie. Okay not everybody likes P camp. Just thanks basically all sugar sugary but I love it I do. Yeah do you you like it all the time. I can't remember the last time out of. He's so so what's happening CEJKA. What's happened with pies as I can tell you from going down this rabbit hole? Yeah is that they're kind of. It's like a new like doughnuts. Got Fancy like now you get the Bacon Jam donuts and the Pie has gotten fancy pies. Really fancy like we're just going to. Marie calendar's for the past forever. Twenty years getting pecan Pie and Pumpkin and apple and Cherry. Okay and we're we're not getting those now like you can go to like these republic of pie places. Oh you mean fancy designer designer pie. How do you think that's do? Do you think we should try like the fancy designer pies like the we're just GonNa go to stay with the bake stay with the base. Yeah stay basic. I'm all about it's not like I'm got to cook no like like when order donuts. Yeah I I just ordered regular donuts. GimMe a cake doughnut covered in chocolate. But how do you. You know that you wouldn't just like like have your mind blown by the Bacon. Donut not eating a bacon donut. It is really good. Luca Danni which is is now the youngest player in NBA history to top thirty points in four straight games youngest player to do it was Kevin Garnett. He has had at least ten assists and all four for those games when he was drafted. The perception was that Luka was a high floor. Low Ceiling Prospect He's only twenty years old team simply have no answer for him. Only active players who've had streaks of at least four games with thirty plus points and ten assists are Russell Westbrook and James Harden only other guy to do it since eighty three creating four Michael Jordan. Well here's a question. Yeah is Luca at twenty better than Kobe was at twenty ooh interesting question. Well Kobe I think he's scored more thing. Kobe twenty scoring more. Kobe was nineteen five and four Lorraine is twenty ten and ten. Yeah it's interesting. That's a good question because we know L.. How Kobe turned out correct exactly? So it's like hard to say. was He better than Kobe. Kobe at twenty was really good. He just wasn't Kobe yet like he had the. If you know the famous how old was he when during the Utah series where he airballs reopen. Yeah so he was he was still working on. It was even starting by that point. I mean he was playing. He's playing really well. Nineteen five and four the age of twenty. I think there was a savviness and like that Cobi already had back then That I just I think Luka to build that late game control everything I mean the other night night. We were at The Clippers Game Brad. Turner from La Times with asking everyone to be out about Luca Danni issues right in advance for their game tonight. And because the clippers is play in Dallas tonight and Brad was asked. Why Leonard Anti asked Paul George like what do you think of them and they both use the exact same term? He's the head of the snake like interesting I. And he's He's twenty years old. Steve Kerr that when they play at him he said he's playing like he knows he's the best player out there like there's that swagger that really only the great rates have like a lot of a lot of really good players have that too but they're not actually the best player on the court he actually might be And he believes it but it's hard to put him in the same sentence intense code because I know Kobe turned out. Does Luka have the potential to be the greatest foreign born player Ooh all time surpassing dirk yet dirk and would be the two yeah. I don't know Turks really good. Yeah change the game. We're looking at an incredibly small sample size. Yeah this is you know I mean I think what's interesting about Luca. Is that when he came into the League. Somebody's opinion I the dancers have the potential. Yeah he does he does but dirk really changed that powerful position he became. He's like the stretch for sure. Like he's that guy I would say he does because Lucas Point Guard and he plays like walking triple double he really at the age of twenty. Yep Now he's he's really really some balls check cash. Yeah that's a good question thank you I. It's it's hard to answer. That's all about fasttrack isn't about. Are you a pie guy. It's about like no no I like five I got another Thanksgiving one oriented. Good okay. Hey It's supposed to rain heavily on Thanksgiving here okay so my mom always hosts and we have all a whole whole bunch of babies. Come into this thing now. So which means that like. I'm sorry missing this this is GonNa be so like my brother has a kid now. My cousin the Nasdaq Kid. Baby Part. Yeah it's going to be lots of babies throwing food and stuff. Although the two youngest ones are still so young they don't have that right And I don't think there's enough room really for or as many people as we have plus babies who are going to be running around so this is greatly affect our Thanksgiving because normally we go half inside half outside you know. La How is the rain Thanksgiving Affect Your thanksgiving Normally go out to a movie outer after dinner That's the normal plan. Okay I think probably we just stay in now you hard to drive in the ranger hard to drive in the rain. I just think it's going to happen. Yeah okay with the wants family. Yeah yeah going to be mellow and Save I. It's kind of a bummer. Yeah you know the problem is everybody's driving tanks giving on on that date like we're driving on Thanksgiving Day so stay over in the rain. He stay over that night. You might have to to torrential rains until Saturday. Okay all right the top industry group for us are actually. I'm going to save that one. Because that's another Thanksgiving Amish. Seven time NASCAR NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson will take his last lap in twenty. Twenty Nascar is losing yet. Another legend as its fan base continues to Shrink Johnson says quote. I'm so thankful for eighteen. Incredible years of racing and NASCAR. The sport has been good to me. It is allowed me to do something I truly love. He wants I five championships back to back to back. From two thousand six to two thousand ten at two more titles two thousand thirteen and twenty sixteen and his seven Nascar Cup series titles ties him for the most of all time with Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty. Now it's no secret. The NASCAR is struggling since two thousand five. America's want second and largest sport has lost fifty percent of his audience at live events and online cheese can NASCAR survive losing yet. Another another legend and why has NASCAR lost so many fans that interesting. I didn't realize they were down that much. Yeah I mean they could survive etel just change a lot of empty seats now at NASCAR races. Yeah lot of MD.. But I think a lot of that is That's in the industry in general right. It's harder for people. Don't want to go to games or events right. 'cause kind of a pain in the butt all right. They're gonNA wait in line. It's expensive you gotta find parking. It takes forever to get into lots like the. TV's now are so good and people are just okay but let me ask you this. Okay but half the people are watching now but also just that. Yeah because you can catch the highlights in catch the highlights on youtube or twitter facebook social media To Watch the whole thing so sport in declined exactly understand why yeah. Did you have any idea greg. Just because they go left over and over again but I mean it was it was it was really big. Twenty years ago it really was. I know I don't really understand it. Because it should be the type of audience they usually go for is their. Aw See this okay. I College football was a sport that I think college. Football's done really well as compared to college basketball in the last like ten years all right and what is the biggest difference college football innovated they created a whole new BC bolt system BCS championship where they have the four teams that play now there's intrigue and then on the other side they have one and done now it's still they still have march madness. That's like the most popular thing that everybody gets into. But it's because but because they haven't dealt with this fundamental issue so I think you're right like NASCAR to Mealey's I used to know probably probably ten ten drivers Yup. I knew their names. They were on sportscenter all time they were covered with like the long beach. Grand Prix was the big thing that I know. That's not Nascar but that's motoracing motorist. Now I would know and I don't think they have the same visibility. I don't think they have the same star power. Yeah I don't even know where as many more I think we actually mayors. Yeah some of it. I think we may can't name a big driver right now. Jimmy Johnson. Yeah that was the guy. But he's done on like another Dale Earnhardt for right now. I don't know because that's the problem. Yeah Hey you need personalities you need big names and Jimmy Johnson's leaving. That was the point of the question. I Don- more fasttrack coming in two minutes Mason Ireland. ESPN LA. Wow Greg Bergman Birdman just said that he thinks the man delorean could be the next game of thrones how I got my Disney plus but I have not You started you go home tonight tonight. Watch their thirty minute. Episodes almost forty really. Yeah thirty to forty minute episodes. You'll love it. It's fantastic and it's something that you're GonNa WanNa talk about the next day and you're not schilling feeling no absolutely not Disney plus is fantastic every single night. Yeah last. It is so good everything in the Disney libraries. I'm almost to you fast track. So James Harden doesn't exactly like the idea of the mid season tournament that the NBA has been discussing with its players Association asssociation Ideas that there would be an NCAA tournament sometime around Thanksgiving kind of like they do. In European Soccer League's tournament the middle of the year to create interest. Because right now I guess it's not interesting enough and the NBA thinks that they can make a lot also allows them to eliminate some regular season games the eliminate back to backs all together and still make up for the revenue by doing this season tournament. So the turn it would be a group stage before six. Six Division winners and two wild cards would advance to a bracket sal tournament Harden was asked about this and he said what are we in College K.. PJ PJ Tucker then said I don't WanNa play for anything else. You Play Games to win an NBA championship period. So the only way this is going to happen if the NBA Players Association get in get on board with it. Do you feel like there is a winning argument to get the players on board with this midseason tournament. Yeah they call it money if this increases the if this grows the revenue for the sport If a grows the basketball related income yeah Then then I think players will get on board. Why wouldn't they? I guess they wouldn't. It is weird. 'cause everybody's just used to it like this and it's but what about if it means getting rid of back to backs and reducing the regular length of the regular season. They're talking about cutting back from eighty two to seventy eight game mortgage eliminating all back to backs. Yeah that is what it would do. Is it worth it to players to eliminate back to backs navy. Yeah that could be worth it. I've interesting though they've talked about that making the schedule easier on the road and I've heard a lot of players actually complain about this in some ways. They just WanNa get home. So so there's all these like off days on the road now That they didn't use to have and in some ways they would just rather just play. They'd rather just like you know. I don't WanNa have a twelve day road trip just just to avoid back to backs. They'd rather have some backpacks really. Yeah like 'cause you're just like stuck on the road you know with three days off in Sacramento or Indianapolis whenever it back to backs not prefer but like I think is sometimes in the in the trying to make the schedule better. They're actually is creating a lot of time on the road interesting. Okay in between all right. AIRBNB and the International Olympic Committee have announced a new partnership that will expand the availability of housing and host cities including in twenty twenty eight here in Los Angeles and could really in the costs of hosting the Olympic Games. The deal is quote economically empowering socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable said the AIRBNB and Olympic joint statement. The deal means that some airbnb houses this will be made available for visitors and workers. The housing options could reduce the need to build new hotels. Thousands of hotel rooms have to be built to house. Athletes in tourist worst wants the event has done. Cities complained about all the hotel rooms that go unused question first of all. Do you like this as an idea. Secondly have you ever stayed aide in an AIRBNB. And what do you think of that experience. I have so walk me through a walk me through it. So the idea is that 'cause you weren't listening a little bit but I wanna make sure I get it right right so in other words the IOC and AIRBNB teamed up to make more housing available during the Olympics. It's for visitors. Visitors though not for visitors right athletes will still have a village but visitors an athlete. I WanNa stay in the AIRBNB now. L. Don't know the Olympic Village is like really fun. Oh it's really fun. Yeah no it's like a lot of athletes just kind of want their own space and time and like when they're maybe maybe it's fun to be in the village after your event over yet. No you really want to be like for example when the NBA guys go. They stay away from the village and it's not the the same experience as being like one great big dorm room for every athlete from around the world. So I don't think that needs to be replaced because because I don't really really understand why they need to team up like AIRBNB already. Functions at the C. IS GONNA promote AIRBNB as an official partner of the. They just WANNA cut yeah. I don't know if that's the case. Do you know what I mean like. Doesn't it sound like they if they promoted than they take a little cut their official sponsor. It's like the Olympic Games ought to you by coca-cola and Chevy and AIRBNB so they'll probably charge more and then take a little cut out of it. That may be right. Yeah maybe right because like I think it's already available like Airbnb is already there and every Olympics do you. I've stayed in one. I don't really do it myself. Yeah I know. A lot of people love that I tend to find it like I like a hotel. I like room service. I like Amenity I like a little more amenities. City's yeah but I have stayed in with like you know we rented an AIRBNB UP IN NAPA for a Bachelorette party right like we've done that for me. I did it during the world series when the dodgers were playing the red sox and I really did feel like I was living in somebody's else's house house. Yeah which which was. But it felt like it didn't feel it. Felt like they were just there yesterday like there were creepy. There were pictures Mickey. The kid had drawn painted stuck to the hour later with magnets. I secretly eight ajar of their peanut butter. uh-huh notice that or not allowed to do that. You're allowed to you're allowed. I worked in an Giang. If there's food in that house you are allowed to eat it. They're leaving it for the next seriously. Absolutely but this I think these weird these people were living in this place. Yeah if it's there it's free game like when I when I was working on the podcast producer would fly out here and she'd get an Airbnb for a week or two working and I always go over there and it was like always like supposed to touch this. Guy's there's there's like stuff there like there's people start it's like I. I'm in a hotel room. I like the idea that I can just mess everything up. Yeah that's kind of the fun part. No it's weird. It's it's like people have their clothes in the cast and no it's fine with somebody else way better way to travel. It doesn't have to worry about hotel fees and all the different things that go with you just go and you stay there and you can go. Doesn't it feel like you're in somebody else's idea. I feel like I always really liked it. There's another one to virgo. which is advocate? Yeah which vacation rentals by owner. It's they're great. I did it for my brother's wedding and we stayed at. It's Gorgeous House with all these games. It was fantastic. It's the best way to go. Yeah I don't know it's not my thing I'd like amenities I like to mess. Up The room uh-huh cleanup. It's paying for that. We might just be kind of bushy. I know we right I I like also also. We're on business most of the time so like I don't know my company like that's part of it right.

We had a team high twenty five points and eight rebounds both individuals season highs as Portland. beat the Chicago Bulls. During one of the time outs he got a facetime call from his son. Cayenne who is up in the stands. That was a nice moment. I'm pretty sure that's a violation of the policy of my questions not to focus on that What is the funniest place you've ever taken a call or facetime Except for the time when we were on air I know that one. Oh that's great. Yeah somehow well. I have no idea how this happened so I was at the dentist. Guilt was a dentist of the shrink. It was a doctor doctor of some kind and I go to put my phone down and somehow I facetime both you and George while you were doing the show. Oh do you remember this. I don't remember that somehow I there's some weird gray where you multiple facetime if it's a group text and you call correct that's exactly what your tax and you call and you accidentally call all of a sudden everybody is on your face time. Yeah and they're like live live in whatever room you're in my mom but faced all the time all the time. She has no idea what she's doing or show. This is the when she faced times in thinks. It's a phone call. Yeah so when she's talking to you all you see is her cheek like she's holding. The phone doesn't unreal. She probably means to just call you to call and accidentally facetime because we don't really need to be on the facetime. No do not need that. Do you know George actually really I have mine. Involves him too. He was like texting me when he was gonNA. I move out here from from Miami when he first got the GIG out here and he was like. Hey we're moving to town.

I mean it's like I'm like on a boat coming but I don't like we were texting so it was obvious I was responding to him but then he called and I was like I mean it's it's not the same but you know he's like you can't not answer because he knows it your time you know face that my call. Oh call but like like you. Don't answer and somebody's been texting you. Then it feels like you're ghosting that that is correct and I didn't WanNa tell them in my techs Croatia. If I'm texting I think it means I don't WanNa talk to you on the phone. Generally I don't WanNa take calls. I don't WanNa talk on the phone just semi attacks. It's easy way to commute.

"I'm not nervous I'm not I'm not a scared I am not a worried now I actually was encouraged by a lot of stuff I saw yeah the clippers are really good at religiously so I'd like to start by saying all is well remain calm no I'm not instead we got seventeen post ops from Anthony Davis last night and the clippers push them further and further and further away from the basket your question was looks like to me last night even when the Lakers made the run and tied at eighty five to go to the fourth quarter the clippers to me like a team that had been together for awhile and the Lakers a couple things jump out at you but the big one that jumps out at me right out of the gate is that Lebron James had five turnovers and a couple of this Lakers could be like that they've had very limited practice time I think I was I was just pulling up the box score from last night and the thing and since the start of last year twenty two times now they're benches at sixty points yeah they're they're benches good there they've got a good coach that's a good team but waiting for it so Anthony Davidson the brain had to shoot outside shots and then Davis made some unbelievable shots but the one point Davis looked unguardable but nickless sixteen to nineteen it'll it'll be better when Kouzmines back it'll be better when Rondos back they have another ball handler at that point but their bench the clippers are vendor but they don't Wanna ask Lebron to carry the load at point guard and guard Kawhi rise any camp give me anything on offense I look bench points were guavas right that'd be zero no there was one because they called the offensive foul that wasn't an offensive foul turnover K. so you're here you're going with one yes six really mindy you mentioned this and after a while the Clippers go oh that's that's their mo that's all they're doing the problem always saw during preseason was pick and roll pick and roll pick and rolls deep man deep the clippers the best bench in the league last year yes Lou Williams went six man of the year award last year third time he's wanted and Mantras Herald finished second guard a D- The answer is everybody right it was everybody's there were a couple things Frank Vogel talked about that today practice Vogel said number one because in new player gets into a new system and the Brian if you go back and look at his turnover like one he kept dumping it into a D. dumping his treated as the stopper it looked like he was on them almost the entire game and there is no stopping by the brand to be the best we'll get in there and get some offensive rebounds eight zero well if he does that if he hangs out near the Rim it takes the pick and roll away because the defenders are all sitting in there okay good team it was just kind of feeling each other out and really the clippers were together for a while with the addition of their team plus Hawaii and the Lakers I'm were at critical moments late when they were making a run and you how many quite had no deaths I'll say one greg how many turnovers since then so did coli defense they were playing on it was like really good for for whatever reason they I think Casey was who's Rick Fox Derek Fisher Robert Ory hit open threes whenever Lebron and Anthony Davis get doubled and with a resounding loud yet John's finish tend to eight clippers yup but there was a point in the game or the Clippers at eight offensive rebounds and leakers zero so they made the judgment told JV eight new guys hold George in a Tuxedo yeah which was a weird fashion choice very weird look at succeed so I if you're a clipper fan you should feel really good and by the way is what I say we go higher low I will go a little bit I go fifty five forty five yeah I mean co- I grabbed a Mike at the beginning of the Game Gi started the game and they want it they had a problem early in they were way behind in rebounds the rebounds finished thirty four thirty two clippers and the offensive rebound has ever scored in his Laker debut was twenty seven by Kareem abdul-jabbar a record broken last night by Harry Peyton Wilt Kareem Magic Any Papa Ghazal the most points any player it was Danny Green Oh Danny Green Danny Green seven of nine from three or here's here's a stat that we read this during the game last night here's a stat that home games for the Lakers right and and we ask the question can somebody on this team turn themselves into the guy all right so Oscar the clever no people asking you this yeah percentage of Laker fans in the building versus clipper fans sixty five thirty five Lakers any green Danny Green scored more by the way you knew second on that list before last night Stu Lantz right I saw that stupid it's between going to a Laker game and going to a clipper game and I say going to a Laker game is like going to a really good Broadway show all right so thinking about the history of the Lakers yeah every every great player that has ever come through the Lakers so Karl Malone going to a clippers game is like going to Disneyland that's pretty good you know it's like you know there you'll see Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck and lights in the main street years more than any other team six and ten because they play him four times every year in the last five years that they've won twenty four twenty nine and ten over the decades while even aw I think by the way unbelievably entertaining game really fun game to watch almost like a playoff it did feel like it it did fan twenty-three in the first game ever played his laker but that's how rare it is it somebody would come off another team in just light it up yeah Danny Green did so I wasn't discouraged. The clippers played better they deserve to win I think the Lakers are going to get better when they get used to being remembered they haven't practiced a lot right they had to go to to China's they're they're twenty four and five over the last twenty nine the clippers because those are the years where the Lakers were down in the clippers are up but the problem is that the Lakers the proposed kind of kind of I was not thrilled with it win sickly bothered you I I hated losing to the clippers something what what if the clippers ever won while here's okay so here's something do you know the clippers have the best record against the Lakers in the last ten james when there were good plays made and it was crazy that's the first time I've ever been to see the The sizzling hot light show that they do at the Clippers Games when check the decks Ram game last year we went thirteen and they went to the superbowl into this year that they've won however many they've won ever many they've won not at every home game in Memphis and then we go to Dallas Dallas yes so I think it's going to be good but if you're a Laker fan I wouldn't be discouraged by anything you know it is Friday so you've got to be patient and then they hit an easy stretch right after the Utah Game I think it's Charlotte after that right they're going to be a lot of teams and you know what Lebron said after the game it's not a rivalry it's just won't get you know what you Lebron doesn't decide if it's where I've read the curse Mason was in the building when they won the title in twenty ten that was nine years ago right but would they have if there was if curse yet mason was you're the epitome of a fair weather fan weather fan I absolutely and we can we get Lou Williams Back Oh God score yeah score man but the the strange thing is so the best player in the court last night was quite yes in the second best player was Anthony Davis Yup third and I also think that this sixty two nineteen bench advantage for the clippers will self correct when Kuzina and run and and people were standing up and and and it was because there were so many laker fans there it was like there were let's go laker chants and cheers for both teams gain the middle and it's going to it's like playing video games I I tell people have people ask me at times what's the difference all right so I'm gary right so Sunday guaranteed would that we're good I'm boycotting while we sucked I'm back record than the Lakers absolutely on their their openers tonight Utah opens tonight and but date added some pieces added like Conley they give the Lakers game van decide if it's a rivalry in it absolutely is a rivalry I agree with Brian. It's an ornate in order for anything to be a rivalry both sides need to have one I'm not a bartender I don't know if you know that John that shocks me and I like a good mix drink while I'm watching games or at the end of a long day but if and pretty much every donkey name with drink works by cured it is my home bar drink. Works is a pod based premium cocktail machine where every potter own measure themselves by their record against the clippers. Well this year they're going to have to maybe if they mean the place safe never met in the playoffs ever but this year they're going to have to measure themselves by the clippers because China thinks set him back in the middle of the thing and teams are going to China traditionally start slow and I should prepare Laker fans or something that team coming in Friday is really Utah you and I both picked to finish with the IT'd be a bartender I'm bound to screw it up but now I can make Margaritas I can make Mojica's I can do an old fashioned like did during the USC game on Saturday great for parties great for the end of a long day and right now the drink works home bar is offering an exclusive offer for my listeners say fifty dollars off the retail don't get back because then rhino may go into the starting lineup coups will probably come off the bench that puts Avery Bradley into the bench lineup if they decided to start Rondo he's got all the ingredients that adds water carbonation chills it up I've got one at home you can pick the drink insert the POD press start in one minute you get the perfect drink it is so they won't be on Christmas Day it won't be as big of a disparity in bench where the cougars bench may get sixty points again because really good they are but I think the Lakers will get thirty or forty COM and remember my code Steve Five Zero please enjoy responsibly Mason and Ireland. ESPN LA I'd introducing the ESPN daily podcast. It's not a fee com use my code Steve Five Zero that Steve Five zero at checkout enjoy a perfect drink at home just like I do with drink works go to drink works why is it in your ear because it's the mason curse OJ Jackson junior talking about how's the Mason Mason Kirk will vans idiots if it was the mason and you you go to the Lakers it's the lion king with the exactly right but I overall I thought that the price of two ninety nine pay only to forty nine and get free shipping just go to drink works dot com that's T. R. I N. K. W. O. R. K. S. Stocks No Shea surprisingly he's giving him way too much of it yeah they're see a Friday at staples you're not going to that game are you really yeah player was Danny Green Danny Green then Brian and then Lou and then low yeah but but it was really really good good he was good I think the Lakers are going to be good I and give me speech and he got boo could not hear him in a clipper home gap if they're ever in a seven game series it says seven Laker Home Peter Algorithm it's not a score or highlight or even an article hosted by Unicom's the ESPN daily podcasts can take you deeper into stories of the moment the ESPN daily podcast. The Lakers last night minus two thousand I got a message from Clipper Darrell he says tell Mason dropping tableau yeah the reason you bought him is that for whatever reason you're a clipper fan and you want to see the other teams occasionally but if you sell is a shooting masonry and ten pushups you know Clipper Darrell made abets with like eight different people he is going to have a very good week he did hosted by Mina kimes available now on apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts we're on the until four o'clock today because we've get game to the world series a matter blue eight okay the well Yo in my forty more but I didn't I didn't and the ESPN loses another Oh that's right another analyst Yeah Ross played briefly for the I got it yeah I know I three I found another one and three clippers fans that did this. Let's say you have clippers season tickets yes didn't put any I told your Washington whenever Chanson is inviting mythical money because now the odds of probably gone way down and you lost money on mythical money by the way Mace they've they've they've eaten you got to win at home okay there's no such thing as a mason curse I just tell your giving him you're giving him way too much credit sell their Lakers tickets to Laker fans pay for their next ten games yeah that makes sense in the building flips to the Lakers wow cubs to hire David Ross yes his last six starts combined and George Springer blew the Game House Oh George Springer hit a ball to the wall in right field your laker tickets to Laker fans you can give her enough money to pay for like ten regularly right so all the clipper fans they do and Joel Madden has taken the angel shop so there's there's a lot of turnover yeah but anyway back to the world series I only caught a tiny bit of it it is part is going to be you actually shoving shelling out money for Clippers I decided never buy one get one do I have to do push ups whenever that Jackass says hi to tie last night so he was the it was the celebration where you think the ball is gone and it's not gonNA wind wound up costing I manage your it's been he's been groomed he was like a special assistant for him this year and he gets that whole he's got that analytics thing going on for him and thought it was gone unfilled Kunia ended up at second should have been third and he would come home on a sacrifice fly them run that would have tied the game well that's an it's terrible time for that what are you throwing your hands up for I don't know why we're talking baseball they do ten pushups and Greg do you lost I need to wear a Clippers Jersey and do the let's go clippers chance online at some points looking forward to that no are happening you know we don't have to talk about one thing for an hour and by the way there's things happening in this world series anthony ran don't could be a dodger next yeah added for you here in La Yes Stephen Strasburg pitching tonight they could go up to out yeah because nobody said they would touch Garrett Cole and Garrett Cole gave up more runs last night than he hasn't Awesome Carlo good for I heard cracking his elbow in the first one okay yeah that's right did you get ten or were you only I just don't think you ever played for the angels who played for the dodgers and he played for the cubs and this will be the first time he's ever been a manager so they're doing the same thing the Yankees did with Bret Boone and You know the warriors did with Steve Kerr they're they're trying a guy who who was popular in the clubhouse and they're going to get them in there and let them run the show so -tated because you lose into the clippers clippers irritate numbers clippers desserts wait no see I don't agree with that asking live there from three until six thirty tomorrow so if you're part of the thirty to fifty two if you're an L. AFC fan hey even if you're a Galaxy Fan oh one and one against the galaxy this year so tomorrow night's a really big deal it's the western conference semifinals and we will be broadcast here Cordell at all last night he was drowned out by the Lakers I did no kidding yeah they yeah the Laker fans but showed up that's code out fans don't show up we'll be broadcasting live right there at Bangka California stadium so make a plan to come out Aright Ladies and gentlemen I am the worst when it comes to me we'll we'll see Ross is a very nice guy he kind of kind of similar to Joe Madden intemperate yeah so that the cubs will we'll see there's a soccer game yes tomorrow night L. AFC versus the Galaxy L. Traffic is that Bank of California stadium but this is it because we're the pre-game show to the world series forty minutes La Neither of those teams are in La and we don't think anyone's going to listen to the station tonight I that's maybe they'll listen to the world because it was on our game but I'm boycotting the World Series Game Tuzon four five the pre-game show starts at four and we've got Arne apparently our bosses care because we're running tonight but our show to the difference between this show and every other shows we talk about whatever in a playoff game before no because remember this is only the second year for L. AFC but they made the playoffs last year didn't play the play the galaxy they are she always wants ten today you can do it anytime yeah okay he's dropping yeah there you go all right Carl comedian yeah we need we need visual evidence so Carlos Liceu from our social media team jobs that means more drafting more getting together with friends and here's the big thing more chances to win you too can be a champion you can play with last-place Mace it's I only round based fantasy football app that combines the best parts of daily and season-long fantasy drafts champions round splits the NFL regular season and postseason into four round.

ESPN LA Anthony Davis is I honesty sports I play ask ball I play fantasy baseball last-place base you're alone last now see football I'm alone in last bucket as a Laker and Lou Williams the former Laker in their here's Anthony Davis tripling in Patrick Patterson got around and put it up in a beautiful spin move by Davis. Am One in six ZIP now in fantasy I am literally last-place makes but not this year because I'm playing fantasy football champions round champions rounders snake is that those clippers have been together they've played together they just added right The Lakers when you look at that starting lineup last night I Leonard Up and the Lakers thinking about the first time Lebron played with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh that team started nine eight course Utah is Friday Utah's John and I both picked as one of the top two seeds in the Western Conference they added Mike Conley they added roster and there was a GM change we went from Mitch Cup check to Rob Lincoln middle of all this so you can't even blame it on on the front office or it just was the only guys are on the team a year ago were little O'Brian Jr Avail Casey p right that's it there are more guys who weren't on the team Aster Anthony Davis Danny Green Avery Bradley Dwight Howard Troy Daniels Quin cooked. Jared Dudley Yep this is a brand new team sure so you gotta give them time to get you the way it all came together yeah the Lakers are one of the worst three point shooting teams in the League over the past three to four years last year the Lakers ranked twenty ninth second to last after the game obviously helps he's embarrassed house Abra score but no we just miss a lot of shots you know a couple of shots Percents free to start so grab your phone hit the APP store and get in the game today it's one hundred percent free for six to sixteen friends visit Champions Round Dot Com Ayaan Bogdonovich they've still got ruko bear and Spider Mitchell it's nice roster that they've got and again I think one of the reasons why the clippers looked a lot better than the Lakers last I each other one thing I was really encouraged by last year it was really a staple of Luke Walton time here and I don't blame Luke for this because he doesn't go out and make the three of the five of them were not on the team last year and then off the bench three of the four people who came in off the bench or serve or slotted first game you know we were not you know down or upset you stand level headed series but right coming to listen to Mason Ireland for the Lakers so libertas where the world series years we're not talking well thoroughly angels going through the next game and they'll look at tomorrow forget what we can do better on both ends of the floor mix them adjustments and then get ready to daughter we'RE GOING TO UTAH. CBS for a free agent he could be your pitch for the next year so I'm definitely GONNA check it out tonight I am not and then tomorrow night actually for the five people who came in off the bench not on the train how to carryover Sir there there's Rondo from the game last night it was that played the game last night okay so Rondo enthused in play last year YEP thirty eight percent from three number two in the whole leak last night thirty nine point four percent for the Lakers in three point shooting percentage shot about thirty two percent from three last night to give it some perspective here the clippers were number two in the NBA the fourth quarter was weird the one thing that that I wondered about was Danny Green was white hot in the third quarter he was six for six from three in the third quarter and they took him out twenty two third quarter twenty three fourth quarter twenty seven and then as you mentioned second quarter forty really what it came down to was the Lakers until Sunday we'll see for homeowners Friday hopefully they learned some stuff they'll look at some film I think Frank Vogel will probably change substitution patterns a little bit last night Davis played thirty seven minutes that's probably a couple minutes more than you want him to Lebron played thirty six minutes well those guys disappeared in the fourth quarter I mean I think that Lebron one the first in the third quarter the war are the clippers won the second in the fourth quarter and more convincing fashion and the fourth quarter is where you institution pattern especially in the fourth quarter which weird well a lot it was a lot of Dudley it was a lot of Kacie P it was a lot of Quinn Cook it was to start the fourth now green ended up playing thirty two minutes so maybe that's free and offering fogel initially said I want to play about thirty minutes at is Lebron trying to get the ball to a d yeah so these are things that will work themselves out but I don't know if they'll work themselves out against a good team like Utah and Friday we may have to wait the Lakers decided to leave open at the three point line was Ju- Michael Green just garden there we want him to shoot it he made four out of seven Yep so in both the guys who were left open last night made the other team pay what Bryant after the game last night let's see Lebron what are we got here the Danny Green was seven of nine if you take Danny Green up they actually did not shoot well from right but you can't take Danny Green out because he attempted nine threes that's twice as many as anybody else if one thing we we didn't talk about is the Lakers lot forty points and that's and put that in perspective here's the amount of points they allowed in the other quarters first quarter awesome costly turnovers and we're making a run Myself I know I had three of them that was just very careless you know and they capitalize off of Jack Table just write it out until he misses actually when he came back in he still was hot you're still making shot so it didn't really cost him but I would have liked to have seen the hot streak player hard for example on the clippers mantras heroin Lou Williams played roughly that but no one else quiet only played thirty one ryan momentum it felt it felt like the Lakers had a chance to to take the fourth quarter instead they really disappeared but you also gotta put yourself in right at the start of the fourth because at the start of the fourth the clippers started three for three and the Lakers started over six. Yeah you know the weird thing is it was basically a flat footed and you know we have to be better at that and obviously forty points in any quarter as much you know down the stretch we have some we have some careless turnover they they do get deeper but if that takes time away from Lou or from mantras Herrell it might help less those two guys killed they did kill Zehi and where he is and he and he got thirty two out of them but when you're hot you're hot rebel Michael Thompson speak thing is you never get tired when you're hot yeah if you're hot it's like being in Kuwait and Lou Williams had a bunch for the clippers so that two points in the fourth quarter they were one of six from the field with four turnovers combined yeah and Frank Vogel Shoes Okay so what you and I are suggesting his fourth quarter put out there for the whole time Lebron at their put Danny Green out there. AD thirty seven really want to win that's the Corner WanNa win and the Lakers only got two points out of Anthony Davis on the bright so you gotta ask yourself where they tired did the clippers just concentrate on and what he hangs his hat on his customer service he wants to make sure that when you walk into either lexa Santa Monica attributed to Santa Monica you get a great deal and that you're treated great annonay de combined for six points in the fourth quarter no two was a two point I mean to from the field I don't know if they've had free throws or not but I think they had they had two points in the end twenty to thirty seven minutes twenty seconds Lebron thirty six minutes Danny Green thirty two minutes they really can't play anymore that that you play anymore net and they're just going to be dead veto last night they are going to be that much better when they add Paul George Yeah it's better and I also even deeper yeah but they're pretty loaded Jordan farmer they're pretty loaded guard so they had nowhere to put beverly and he was coming right out of Arkansas beverly last night like not knowing any yeah was there with Mike Sullivan and the car Guy People mad is the GM both Lexus Santa Monica and Toyota Santa Monica he runs both places I'm GonNa be the one if you're gonNA leave somebody open to three point line and he can catch and shoot that's who you want it to be right so you know because I didn't think when Cook Look Greg sampling the player the Lebron James Talking about the defense I think the second quarter like you said they they mason took shots we got to let the defense offense dictate our defense hundred miles in one tank for two sixty nine a month plus tax to sixty nine a month for thirty six months how how handed all that damage and thirty one right and Anthony Davis in the Brian played thirty seven and thirty six respectively I'll tell you what we saw the guy in

That's a at Glendale. It'd probably be the first choice but again. They're not going to be able to require that. That's really going to be a personal choice. Just give us your general reaction to this kind of Sir Real. All the their spring training games all sudden everything gets halted in the regular season is postponed or delayed. I mean. Give us your reaction to this. Well obviously it's a it's a world crisis it's You know it's not unique to our country. It's it's it's everywhere and you know one thing I I I know about the NBA The NHL or Major League Baseball or or any other sport they have access to people who are on the cutting edge and and know more about it than anybody. And I think when you when they make a decision like they have made across the sporting world when she double a. I mean you name it you know. It's it's really due to a lot of a lot of conversations. A lot of excess that You know you typically wouldn't have if you were me You know they they can go right to the people who are on the cutting edge of whatever the issue is and really get a a place in time where where the accuracy is as good as it can be and so for everybody to to come to the same conclusion really with about twenty four hours You know you know it's it's the right thing to do without without a doubt and you know that their decisions will be based on their own experience but also the experience of the people that are at the top of the thought process. Do you think that it was the Rudy Gobert situation the player in the NBA testing positive? That kind of was the domino that fell once that happened it almost seemed like the NBA immediately suspended their season and once that standard was set the NHL and now golf and every other sport and the Ncaa Basketball Tournament has followed as you look back on this was one when in actual player in this case in NBA professional basketball player caught. It was that probably the the point where teams had to had to eventually cancel everything. It's just a guess on my part I I think in the last twenty four hours thirty six hours. Everything's been ramped up and I don't know I don't think it was one player that ramped it up so to speak. I think it's it's people becoming more and more aware. I'm sure that Major League baseball the NHL NBA They're in contact probably for for weeks on end with trying to gain as much information as they could. And you know when you do have a player. Certainly it changes the dynamic some but if I had to guess I'd say that this cancellations pauses postponements. I think there were probably all in the works before one player positive fourth so theoretically and I know you're you're still doing you're still over a spectrum and doing Access Sports Net Being Scott let's just talk theoretically so the seasons delayed first question is you'd have to have more spring training before the season gets restarted. Right correct in in your mind. Is it smarter to shorten the season or do you try to get those games in just talking theoretically here well? I think one of the one of the things I noticed in the last few days I mean you see it. Whenever anything happens of magnitude that people are looking for like immediate answers. I don't think there's an immediate answer I think I can go back to nineteen ninety four when the world series was cancelled and Spring training was played with replacement players in about forty eight hours ahead of opening day. There was settlement. There had not been spring training for major league players There was a settlement about forty dollars ahead of opening day and they started. I think on April twenty fifth they had about a month of spring trading. Maybe a touch less and I think the season was one hundred and forty four yams. So you know. That's a little bit of a gauge Ready have spring training for a month pretty much. So you've already. You've got pitchers in sixty to sixty five pitch range of starters with tells me that they're a start or two away from being ready for a season If this goes two weeks they probably need an extra week. If it goes a month you're probably talking about more than an extra week. You probably talking about a lot more time and I think you know we don't know the answer to how long and I think that will go a long way. But you know for looking for a for guidance you talking about meeting a month back in In nineteen ninety four five for that season you looking at a month if you had not had spring training and you were able to to start up on. Let's say April first spring training. You know that's still two and a half three weeks away. So that's about the best. I can offers a how much you end up with. A what type of season you would have. I think that there's a good chance there will be less than one hundred sixty two games but again. That's that's all just distant guests at this point in time. We're talking Ned. Colletti former general manager of the dodgers still very involved over at Sports La and actually disembarked in the NHL for the sharks knits been around sports in in several different capacities throughout his life. Ned Settle an argument for us. Let's assume that the season does get up and running and in whatever form it takes Mason and I disagree about how the Astros are going to be this year. I think they have such a dark cloud over their heads. And there's so much bad Karma operating around that team that I think they're they're not gonNA make the playoffs. I think they finish five hundred but I don't think they're going to be the Astros we've come to know over the last three years. Mason correctly points out that on paper. They are absolutely loaded. They have everything they have hitting the pitching they have power. They've speed If you had to guess do the Astros overcome all this stuff. That's around their team and make it back to the postseason again and factor into this thing or do they implode. I think they make it back to the postseason not I'm not smiling as I say that but I think that they are. They do have a very good team and so many that division is going to have to step up and beat them and You know I don't know who who's adult did at this point in time But they are. They're very very talented team. They will have their cash. There's no doubt and a delay in the season is not going to club a massive so to speak. I think they're still. They're still going to hear about your body every road game. There's no doubt you know it is As a dodger fan it is so this this delay and obviously it's necessary and all that stuff but I was so excited for opening day on the twenty six than This team is absolutely loaded. I I've said on the show. I think it's possible that this is the best dodgers lineup in history. What do you think? Oh it's got a chance. I mean you know you go back to the fifties with the Brooklyn. Dodgers won the world series and fifty five and played in a A lot of world series in the first four or five six years in a decade and then when when they moved away and fifty nine now that that team was loaded as well. But I don't know a team that has so much depth just team. Does you know you look at the start you figure out who to starting. I mean that's difficult to do something difficult time doing that. Because they don't have enough players. Just one has a difficult time doing it because they have too many players not too many but they have. They don't have anybody that's a week out. They don't have anybody that's week offensively. You go all the way through it and then you get to the minor leagues and they're GonNa have more shit in there. You look at their pitching. You know. It's just there's a lot of it and they they built it. They built it show strong so sturdy. They take nothing for granted as evidenced by the best price acquisition. And got. I think is GonNa be as he's going to be a very good addition to that to that at staff at the at the end of games at some point I maybe not right here right now this year but in time. You're as big as he is and you throw in the low hundreds with a with a great sink tulips. Yeah hello to you. Know they have more than anybody. And there's no doubt Ned something or nothing that their rotation is heavily heavily left ended. Four out of the five guys at Dave Roberts mentioned in the starting rotation wait you know you've got Walker Bueller in there but you've got kershaw and price and Alex Wood in aureus. All left-handed can other teams load up against that or does it matter. They can a little bit but some of those. Those lefties have really good against against right handed hitting two and the game is different. You don't have pitched going seven eight nine innings and if you're GONNA have bullpen. It's probably going to be just the opposite dominant right hand with some left-handers but if you're going five or six innings and you've gotTa Heavily Right handed lineup and you've got you've got twelve or thirteen position players. Eight of 'em let's see. You could start a right handed edits when when the right handed reliever comes and you don't have eight left handed hitters to counteract. I don't think there's any issue with that. I also don't think you're GONNA see thirty starts From the fourth or fifth spot. Hopefully you'll see thirty starts in the first three but you probably won't see thirty stats from the Julio from from Alex Right and so that'll be a right handed starter there. You'll see stripling at some point. At some point you'll see may at some point again. It's it's well. We talked about a minute ago. They have so much of everything that don't mix and match they're not looking for the Atlanta braves from. Maybe it was ninety five right around there. Were you know their five starters and nobody missed start. That's not happening. That's not how the game is today. Yeah I last thing for a lot of people are a home right now. They're working from home or they're not going to work or you know we're all we're all spending time watching TV watching Streaming Give us the name. Are you binging any shows right now? Is Ned Colletti binging any shows? That's a good question. I'm actually in. This is probably gonNA come as no surprise. I'm actually finishing up the The Sopranos for the second time. Wow Nice is there. Stuff is their stuff you've noticed. Is their stuff. Notice that you didn't notice the first time no doubt no doubt. It's like watching the Godfather I've seen that about seventy five twenty two. Yeah learn something new you know. See something new That and the the Kamensky method with Michael Douglas Oh goodness you know I'm I'm not at their age. I'm Shirley climbing and next year. They are really funny up to really and give us the name of a movie that you think are not a lot of people have seen that they might be able to get on itunes or net flicks are one of those services. What movie pops into your head? You got me on that one. John Hartson can tell you from the network you start talking movies. I don't have any well. At least you're honest. Hey Ned thank you for doing this. I know it's a weird circumstance. All right thank you. There's a Ned Colletti Okay so when we wins at you coming on four thirty two in twenty minutes. Yeah I just looked at the top twenty all time movies like I just googled. Greatest Movies ever made a top twenty clearing according to their netflix would know highest rotten tomatoes highest rotten tomatoes score. It's got I've only seen to get out of here. Who GET OUTTA here. We'll pull them up again and we'll we'll throw you guys can tell me which which is my most egregious missteps. Sounds like there are. Some egregious wins in there. Mason Ireland seven ten. Espn John and I are going to be here every afternoon for you except next week Mason. Who is out of here? He's had him out long plan on planned vacation. So tomorrow's GonNa be a jump ball Tomorrow we're supposed to be going on vacation we originally originally going to go to Guatemala Decided not smart to leave the country as of yesterday we're going to catch a flight to Miami and spend some time in the sun. It's supposed to rain here all next week. as of today we are either going to drive out to palm springs or drive up the coast And go to like big Sur or catch a flight to Hawaii. You just in. Why no haven't been there in a long time then last year last year sometime sure my own the most. They haven't been there like I haven't been there in five years. That's a lot. It's been super expensive until right now. I'd vote Hawaii because if I could go anywhere. That's where I'd go have you been. I went there last year right around this time this week. Actually and fly there for like one hundred and a quarter kidding. Did you phrase in? The flights are completely empty and hotels. Hotels are super cheap. And you know you are stimulating. The economy is that that tiger justifying it. Okay good for you yeah. I just think we should run. That Promo Morales says we're not going anywhere. We'll be here. Get Morales to drop in except for me yesterday when you were complaining about going to the gym because it was too too. Much Jersey. It's we're all going to be here except for the gym is filthy. I'm sorry I mean. With all due respect to people at Sports Club. La and all golds and all. That gyms are filthy old which you haven't been to in two months two months. I'm I'M STILL. I still am kind of shredded. Still Kinda shredded just through so new producer. Lindsay says that you made a terrible mistake that I made a terrible mistake. You did secure you remember yesterday. I think it was yesterday. Maybe the day before we were talking about Westerns. I think those yesterday was did. I get the big difference. Seven song runs also my fault but one of our astute followers on twitter and thought it was a listen I got I got it all under control. And I've I've done some investigating the help of Chuck Wagon who's one of our listeners. So he cut his all up and broken down. And here's what John Originally saying claiming it was the magnificant seven song magnificent seven with Yul Babe's seven might be number one we. Yeah that's great. So here's the magnificent magnificent seven song. So what did I miss this year? Is the National Geographic Song? Like he said confused commitment that seven in the national. That's an easy mistake know. Were adamant that you didn't mix them up and just to even take it one step further putting the two together here. We go excellent piece of work yet producer Lindsay. Now what play them? And can you play the magnificent seven? I don't think I could even yeah different songs. Yeah Nice use of producing work. I did botched the nailed it by them followed you chuck wagon because of social media. It's very hard to get away with anything so I'm glad chuck social media's like better with all this virus stuff or worse does it make things better or is it making things worse. It always makes things worse do you. But there's a lot of good information on social media like if you follow the right things there's like really good stuff. How many people do you follow About six hundred I followed double that I feel like I'm getting all sorts of conflicting information on tweet deck. If you don't tweet decades very useful I have one column that just says news in it's just. Cbs ABC and NBC. And all those news people and I get good information out of that column like for example. Hbo's last week tonight. In real time with Bill Maher will be will Will temperature temporarily halt production due to concerns? I really love those shows for Bill. Maher tonight did they just do it with no audience? Everybody else's do. Would you do so no last week tonight or no bill? Maher is a lot of shows that are shutting down productions but but like a lot of them are still doing without audiences like Kimmel and foul you know put their shoes of dramas like one hour Single Camera Dramas Center shutting down even ones that are shot in Toronto by the way last night apparently Pete Buddha judge who was a hosted one of the late night show hosted Jimmy Kimmel yes Without an audience and one of his jokes just read in deadline. See this He was asked about running for president he said turns out. I was about forty years too young and thirty eight years to gay very true such a good job. Good for Mayor Pete. Yeah why is Kimmel guest? Having guests hosts now what happened? Kimmel take the night off. I mean maybe had schedule schedule. Time off you know who knows. Yeah we came on the show. I hope he's not Not Sick can get him on the show. I'm sure he's fine. I'm sure he's fine. I feel like anyone who's like famous has been doing a really good job of getting out in front of you know saying like hey by the way. I'VE KRONA VIRUS LIKE WITH TOM. Hanks did having Charles. Barkley calling up yesterday. In town. We know anything more about Barclay. Seen anything and I've been looking at. Have you been looking update? Yeah I've not. I've not heard an update. Either if you if you missed a Charles Barkley was on the TNT inside the NBA show yesterday and he was on the phone while they were interviewing Adam. Silver and Barclays said he had been experiencing system symptoms and had a corona virus test. But he didn't have the results of the test As of Four hours ago he told TNT that he's quarantined in his home which makes sense quarantine in his home by the way. Okay so it's coming now. Hope he's okay is national treasure. More and more teams are stepping at the Memphis. Grizzlies just stepped up to say. They'll pay all their arena employees during this work stoppage. Here's how not to issue a statement. Okay this is from the New Orleans. Pelicans when Zion came out and said he will personally. For the next thirty days pay the salaries of every arena worker. Yes The PELICANS issue a statement. That says Earlier this morning the Pelicans engage with management at Asm New Orleans to determine what the team could do to assist their employees. Well it's a bit more complicated being that the PELICANS are simply the tenant of the building the giving and helping this community in a time of need by Mrs. Benson and organization is unquestioned. When people need help. There's never a question of will be there. You're either doing it or you're not like the Kings Lakers and the clippers are doing it. The Memphis Grizzlies are doing it. The Cleveland Cavaliers. Are doing it right. You don't send out of saving. Says we always do the right thing? You're either doing it or you're not right does that. That's a very weird state. I mean we can't get a hold of gale but until we do we're going to say nice things about her and wait until we confirm so. They're not officially pitching in. They're just saying they all right. Steve when people need help there is never a question of who will be there. In this case it's Zion. I coming up next that Ginny naturally. Who used to run rotten tomatoes and now he runs movie phone And he also has a daily movie show or weekly movie show That's really good. He does it with my friend. Kristy Lemaire it's called breakfast all day. He's going to come in here. And you say okay of the of the top twenty movies on his old site that are listed as the best movies of all time in other words the twenty that have the highest rotten tomatoes score. I just signed another one that I have seen so I've only seen three from start to finish. I've seen parts of a lot of the other ones but I you guys are all have you guessed. Tell me which one I'm screwing up the most by never having seen because the top twenty s very famous shame. Yeah seventeen of them hasn't seen start to finish including number one. I got a text from my mom. She was pointing out that Her in not Stepdad. Leo Are Driving. Back to the desert ring and she. She wanted to point out how. There's no traffic out there. So she texted Leo. Doing seventy seven miles per hour at four o'clock on the two ten near Pasadena. My first thought is. Why is this? Seventy seven eighty year old man. Doing seventy-seven drive the speed limit. Why is he not driving? The speed limit is coming to me. Fair that's slower than probably I was going to say. That is the speed limit. Seventy seven is way over the speed limit. Isn't it for an old man all the what. What's the posted speed limit on the sixty seven seventy? He's right right there so it's probably sixty five right. The speed limit is never seventy so right is silent palm desert. I think my average speed was eighty. Seven hundred seventy the highest speed limit. We have is sixty five. Isn't it on signs? I know you drive faster but on signs with Leo Leo. If you're listening step on it yeah going lead foot go. You'll be home in twenty minutes and I just got a text from my mom. He's not eighty seventy nine. I met actually next seven ten. Espn yeah and a lot of you guys are at home. Maybe working at home. Or you've you get the kids at Lsu La. Usda is closed so maybe to be home And we're all going to be watching stuff on streaming and on demand on I tunes and all that stuff so The guy that I know that knows almost as much about movies as I do is Matt Atrophy who used to run right and compliment by the way. No ruins movie phone mad. I would take you in a movie trivia contest against Mason. I'm just having you know that almost as much I love that. Yeah all right so Matt Mason like you have seen every movie ever made he is. He's always laughing at me because someone who spends time on airplanes and has endless amounts of free time to watch stuff trapped in hotels. I've seen nothing so your old site rotten tomatoes. We went and looked at the list of best movies of all time of the twenty best movies of all time. I've only seen three. So we're going to run these by you and Mason. You guys can tell me how egregious my mistake is on a scale of one to ten all right. I've never seen Black Panther. How much do I have to see it? You must what the top twenty. That's not at the top. It's good but that's okay. It's really good parts of it. You should really be more woke. Okay I have not seen avengers endgame on a scale of one to ten. How much am I missing Matt All the rest of the movie. No never seen a marvel movie. Yeah then you're okay. Yeah I mean. He just doesn't watch the marvel he's missing out on a really fun. Collective national experience. Why got experience man? The marvel movies are fun man. I got vander pump roles to watch man. I don't have time for a marvel movies. All right so the third movie. I've never even heard of the third highest rated movie and Rhett Tomatoes. It's a movie that came out last year. It's called US Jordan Peele. There's something I gotta take and I can say this because I'm not there. There's something wrong with that last because it used to be waited and there's something wrong with that algorithm. It's all ommited than it used to be. Not Look like you guys don't get this. Is Sports Guys Understand? Averages and things like that like it's supposed to be that newer movies with more positive reviews. They're not supposed to be ranked higher than say older movies with lesser views. Because they were less got. Yeah so it's so it's a citizen Kane. For example you won't see on this list And it's probably number. Yeah Citizens Citizen Kane who was revised as though should be within the top five. Got It okay so I have not seen it. I actually want to see this because I saw the first three and liked all of them. I have not seen toy story for is. It is good as the first three now may know naked. Tory story three. I thought was the I I would be fine if the series ended their toy story. Three made me cry. All right Lady Bird I. I'm not even sure what that's about. Lady Bird is terrific. It is not about Lyndon B. Johnson's what it's it's really good drift directed by Greta gerwig stars. Sure see Ronin of very very funny Okay Mission. Impossible fallout never saw. That's like the latest in the in the mission impossible series right by the way. Let's be honest though Matt. All mission impossible movies are pretty much the same and pretty good. They're all good but I can't tell them apart like I don't know which mission impossible Matt I think the best mission impossible movie was the one where Philip Seymour. Hoffman was the bad guy. Do you agree that through hanging out of the plane? That was great. Yeah that was my favorite okay. So we're Matt. Where are you on the Irishman? I haven't seen it. I normally love those kind of mob movies I think. The CAST is spectacular. Am I missing out? Not Seeing the Irishman I. Well look like you know since we're GonNa talk about streaming stuff you might as well watch it right. Everybody's gotTa stay home It's a good way to kill three hours. No it's very good. It's very good is it? The Best Scorsese movie ever no not by a long shot. But it's very good. You know the one thing. I saw in the theaters because I wanted to see it in the theaters but then I also watched at home as a four part miniseries and it actually works as a really good four part miniseries online. There's like a a a a a description of exactly how you do it like you watch the first forty five minutes. That's episode one. You watched the second hour. That's episode when you're through the normally hate that I saw in a theatre I but then one wanted to see it and so when we watched as a mini series. I think it's really good. It's by no means the greatest. Martin Scorsese movie of All K. Then the two movies that everybody's seeing including me wizard of ice and citizen Kane both great. I've never seen you've seen you've seen citizen Kane. Yeah I find that really hard to believe. Yeah longtime ago what do you remember of Rosebud? Okay don't don't spoil it. Don't spoil it. Yeah you but you know what rose but is yeah. Okay say okay. Don't spoil it all right so Black Klansman I liked the idea. I like John David Washington. I like Adam driver. Never seen it. Madam I missing anything. You're missing something. That's a great movie mason like Black Klansman a lot. I thought Adam drivers fantastic Denzel skid is really really good spike Lee won the Oscar for best screenplay loved it. I thought it was great. Okay the next one Matt says the Cabinet of Dr Kelly Jerry. I don't even know what that is. Is that a foreign film. It is not a very very old or ancient movie. I think it was. I think it was a silent movie to. Yeah it's it's like nineteen twenty day Dow. You don't need the next one number twelve. Get Out I saw it and loved it. I think I liked it more than most people did. I thought in terms of creative inventive idea. That was freaking me out and was really well done. I'd love to get out of my overrating. Get Out Matt now know if anything. Anyone can do is underrated. That really is perfect. It's very rare that I will call a movie perfect. That movie is perfect and by the way. If you get if you loved get out Jordan peels. You might already mentioned it. These are nice. Similar theme US is Super Creepy. It's not as good as get out but I would argue. It's creepy than get out. What do you think that I think? It's definitely a Croupier weirder space. That get out but I think is the tighter fell. Okay great next. Who Do you know that said? That wasn't a great movie. I never heard anybody say anything. Negative about well it's ranked it's one of the movie in the context of like are you overrated. No okay good underrate. Good can't say anything. Good about that Bobby. Okay Spiderman into the spider verse is the most is the most recent one right who plays Spiderman exit animated. It is automated. It's Awesome Spiderman movie period. Adam you're in there applauding you've seen it. Oh it's amazing. It's like the animation style. It's everything about that. Whole thing's animated. Yes it's the Best Spiderman movie. I don't Care Tobey Maguire. Tom Holland or any of those guys. The Best Spiderman Movie For my money in order to the spider verse animated okay. I'll check that out. All right. Mason lives this next one matt. Mad Max fury road. I've seen parts of it. I haven't watched it start to finish. Are you a fan of that? Mad Max? V Road. Loved it and makes you say that to the Best Action Movie The Decade Right Best Action Movie of the Twenty First Century so far absolutely love that movie. The action is crazy. Nonstop crazy nonstop. Hey Matt before before we by the way we may we may lean on you a little bit over the course of the next few weeks sports. Give us the The name of go see it's not like they haven't moved all of those back to have you been to a movie since all this virus stuff but came out you know. I went to one last night and actually there were hardly anyone. They've moved all of the big movies back right so fast and furious guy. The next one got moved back. Milan got those back. All of the big relationship. It pushed back Is that to protect the box office more than anything else. I think that's part of it. Depends on the movie in some cases. Yes. It's definitely pushed the box office. Because they're worried about where those numbers are going to go. You know the film festivals are getting canceled The things like wonder con and San Diego Comic Con. Well I suspect it depends on how that's not scheduled till July but You know south by South West has a big film festival component. That that's been your with your with movie phone movie theaters and I own movie theaters for a long time. I'm not in the business anymore. Movie theaters have got real problems during this crisis right. Oh there. It's it's it's gotta be devastating. I mean it's you know it's an part of it is look at you like we could get into the minutia that it's less about you know it's not so much that the the money all mostly comes from the concessions right. Yes there's money to be made at the box office but not getting people into come and buy the stuff and you know people are GonNa wait it out. Now that you know look bounce back it will totally bounce back but it's going to be a few months yeah you don't ask me some earlier. Matt. We're talking to Matt. Actually if there was a big debate is really on for the past couple of years over whether or not filmmakers should release stuff on Netflix ending. The theater at the same time like they did with the Irishman so more people can see it. Do you fear that that because of this Covered nineteen that good movies may have to be released on net flicks instead of the theater. Couldn't have that effect. I think there's GonNa be some of that. What what whole sat back and Steve. No says is that the the the exhibitors theater owners still want that first three months bite me. I'm you know. And there's bigger money there than there has been on streaming I look to the distributors the studios would happily do what they call day and date release absolutely but The theater owners still carry enough weight. That hasn't changed. I would hate to be a point where nothing ever goes into theaters because there's a unique experience to seeing a movie especially a really. You know a scary movie and a big comedy place. So much. Different in the theater ever will at home That's just a unique experience. It's it's almost the difference between you know watching ship on TV versus going to the Super Bowl right. Yeah yeah that's A. That's a good way of putting one more on this list. I won't ask you guys about because I've heard a lot about it but I know nothing book smart. How good is book smart bookmarks Really Funny Really Funny Really Funny? It's if if you liked now I'm blanking on the name a super bad. Yes super smart okay. All Right Matt. Thanks very much for coming on. We'll do this guy told me breakfast.

Which is the big reveal. Yeah don't spoil it. It's like the sixth sense. Yeah I've seen that too spoilers for a movie that Old Yeah. I think so well for that particular movie. It's the whole it's the whole Adam. Have you ever seen the movie the sting? Yes okay I saw. You wouldn't tell somebody who hasn't seen at Lindsey. If you've seen the sting Redford and Newman definitely not okay. So have you seen citizen Kane? Nope Rosebud is nope. Okay so Lindsey.

Madison vs. Mason

"I'm Jeffrey Rosen Presidency. Oh the National Constitution Center and welcome to we the people a weekly show of constitutional to beat the National Constitution Center is a nonpartisan nonprofit chartered by Congress to increase awareness and understanding of the constitution among the American people people September seventeenth is constitution day the anniversary of the signing of the US constitution in seventeen eighty seven in celebration of constitution in day. We devote this episode of the people to profile of two of the most influential figures shaping the Constitution James Madison Listen and George Mason if you had to pick two figures to exemplify the fundamental debates over the constitution and whether or not we should have a bill of Rights Madison and Mason seem a good place to start and we have convened a two of America's leading scholars Madison and Mason to help us understand who's WHO's constitutional legacy and ideas were most influential and how they differ and how they complimented each other Kaleen Sheehan is visiting scholar at the University of Colorado Boulder and professor of political science at Villanova University Professor Sheehan is the author of many books including the superb James Madison and the spirit of Republicans self-government which I recommend so strongly to we the people listeners and the forthcoming Cambridge companion to the federalist Co edited with Jack Rakoff professor. She is a member of the National Constitution Centers Madison Constitution For all commission and has written about Madison and the media in a soon to be published and very illuminating essay coline. It is wonderful to have you on the show. Thanks Jeff. It's great to be here. I'm always happy to do anything the National Constitution Center and the work look you doing their floor civic education in America. I appreciate it and Jeff. Broad Water is professor of history emeritus at Barton College in Wilson North Carolina. Uh He is the author of George Mason forgotten founder which I just had the great pleasure of reading this summer and also so strongly recommend to we the people listeners as well as James Madison Addison a son of Virginia and a founder of the Nation Jeff. It is an honor to have you on the people thank you honor to be on the program Kaleen. I'm going to begin with solarge question. Perhaps the largest question constitutional law but I know you can help distill the essence of it for our listeners. We're here to contrast Madison and Mason what what were the core of Madison's constitutional ideas and what was the core of this constitutional vision well. I guess sufficed to summarize it as tersely as possible. I would say that his constitutional vision was about self government which included included both liberty instability the idea that you need a stable government in order to protect the rights and liberties of the people so that they'll have the opportunity to govern themselves. Madison thought that that the history of the world was a history of of humanity signing for the chance to be their own masters and so wait before the constitutional convention in preparation preparation for it he spent quite some time writing up a piece called vices of the political system of the United States and which he looked at the effects of the United States government under the articles of confederation and his goal was to see if we could find a way to correct those defects especially especially the problems of instability injustice and confusion as eat could it later on in federalists number ten and so in correcting directing these kinds of problems of of a government that splits powers between a central government and state governments government or what's called Federalism Battiston thought that if we did this properly we could find a way for the first time in history tree for the people to really have a fair trial at the experiment in Self Government Jeff Broad Water George Mason will be less chameleon to our listeners. Tell us why many scholars think that he was among the most influential members of the constitutional convention his Virginia Declaration of Rights both influenced Madison when he wrote the bill of Rights as as well as Jefferson wrote the declaration Asian of independence why was Mason so influential and what was the core of his constitutional vision. Mice was one of the older delegates to go. I know the Philadelphia Convention was already a major figure in American politics. He'd been an early leader in the resistance to two British policy in Virginia before the American Revolution as you mentioned was principal author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights which generally considered the first modern bill of rights also the principle author of the Virginia Constitution which was one of the first state constitutions and so he brings a great deal of respect and influence to to the Philadelphia Convention and he's particularly remembered for raising the issue of the lack of the bill of rights he didn't sign the Constitution. He was one of three delegates who state of the end of the convention. I didn't sign that sign the Constitution and toured the end of a convention early. I think on the next the last day he wrote a list of objections. The constitution and his first objection was that there was no declaration rights. I think having written the Virginia Declaration of Rights gave him a great deal credibility to trip to raise that issue and he goes on and become one of the one of the handful of really impressive anti-federalists leaders as a leader Peter of the anti-federalist of the Virginia Convention that have been called ratify the Constitution Virginia would say that he he is differences with Madison as audiences were huge but they were important. I I think Madison thought that he could construct a national government that would that would be representative as people I would act responsibly would serve as a check on the state government. and Madison are Mason easy to get confused Nice. I think it was just it was less optimistic about that. I think he he was more distrustful. Government at any level sometimes we think of the anti-federalist states arises is people that were simply post giving right or power to the central government and there's some truth to that one of the most interesting to me is. I study Mason's career. Mason was is concerned about corruption and even though the county level as he was about about the national level. My won't talk about that later but I think the different one of the differences between Madison Amazing. Simply Mason Mason did the local orientation and Madison but he was simply more a pessimistic outside about the ability to to to credit governments national state and local hell wouldn't ultimately become corrupt and oppressive fascinating and as you write in your are superb book like John Adams you say Mason feared a new republic could founder an unchecked individualism transient popular majorities in the inherent virtue of the marketplace marketplace all forces that were sure lead to corruption as they had in Great Britain and he Mason oppose the because he thought had gave too many powers to a popularly elected acted chief executive kaleen. Let's begin to articulate what the what the major philosophical clashes at the convention were and if the founders came to Philadelphia determined to create a national government strong enough to achieve common purposes such as common defense and regulating the national economy. They also wanted to be constrained enough to protect liberty. Why don't you jump in and try to ah the main differences and similarities between Madison and Mason when it came to those questions and maybe we could start with the powers of Congress well. I think that Jeff Broadway broad water did a very good job in articulating Mason's view I would it only add that not only was he one of the older delegates but he was one of the crusty your ones I think I don't know if Jeff would agree with that. You know make Mason and L. Bridge Judge Gary and let's see who was who was a fellow who said I may take a foreign power by the hand hand which Rufus King responded and and chided him that we were there to get a job done for the Union and oh it was it was gunning Bedford. I think appropriate name have asked another word about gunning Bedford because you sound so interesting well it's from Delaware and in fact his home now one of my students from Delaware during a break picked from the university went to find his old home and it's now masonic lodge so I don't think tours being it's it's it you can't tour for its historical value. As far as I know but I'm not sure haven't been there but Bedford was a was a real interesting character and I always thought he was appropriately named. I myself don't know too. Many people named gunning. Mason and Madison were both from Virginia and and in many ways they disagreed about much of of what needed to be done in the United States they both came to Philadelphia as part of the Virginia delegation supporting seemingly the Randolph Virginia Plan introduced by Edmund Randolph authen- governor of Virginia rate early on in the convention in fact it was kind of a preemptive move but some of the major clashes at the the convention of which Madison Mason as well as others of course would be a car had to do with how much power the national government should have and how that would affect both the rights of the states are as well as the liberties and rights of the people for example sample the delegation from New York state composed of three members one of whom was Alexander Hamilton whom I'm sure many of your listeners will we'll know a lot of bow or at least be able to see saying a number of songs about him absolutely and then lansing engaged now. Hilton was one of the people very much pushing for the constitutional convention and a full-scale Amendment Amendment of the articles of confederation whereas Lansing and Yates were cronies of then Governor George Clinton of New York in enjoyed Clinton was a big fish in the relatively small pond of New York state then and they wanted to keep as much power as possible at the state level fearful that a national government would really make them fairly irrelevant which by the way some thought was Alexander Hamilton's plan all along to make the states as administrative units as fairly irrelevant compared to the Hercules America would become now where does where does madison fit into this. Many people think that Madison Jason was pretty Monday hammel Tony in the seventeen eighty s and there's there's a certain sense in which they agreed very much on on what needed to be done to amend the articles and to put the noon fledgling United States on a firm footing but I don't think Madison was ever quite the the nationalist that Hamilton always was Madison always thought there was a substantial insignificant place for where the states are not just because of wanting to protect states' rights but primarily because it was federalism was necessary necessary to protect the rights and liberties of the people in an extensive republic. It's interesting that in general have more to say about this that that Mason to is also is concerned about too much power being given to the national government in the liberties. Nobody's the people being in jeopardy but I think for very different reasons than Madison. Thaw will jeff tell us more about Mason's view about the dangers as of too much national power what what were his concerns initially supported the Virginia plan but at the Virginia ratifying find convention opposed ratification in part because Congress might make service in the militias unattractive as a pretext for establishing a standing army and he objected to federal control of the militias so what was it about congressional national power in the Constitution that mason feared and really sort of follow-up Kaleen laughed left off. I think there are a couple of issues that the answer that question illustrate his differences with with Madison one is is an issue that would sound pretty archaic or obscured uh US Mason believed that Eh a two-thirds vote of Congress should be required to pass laws regulating commerce or foreign trade eight. He knew that thought that the north northern the northern states would have a majority in Congress and they map pass legislation that would say give them monopoly on American shipping to northern shippers he and the British in what they call the navigation acts which imposed comparable regulations on American commerce and Magin worried the Mason Mason worried about that Madison was not so worried about that and I think if I had to make Eliza maybe Mazen's top three concerns about about the constitution one was the power to regulate commerce. I think Mason supported a congressional Paraguay ECOMMERCE. I think most people saw that was needed but he thought it ought to acquire something like three fourths quote or or some formula with the gives us asa the veto another difference and this again a they seem trivial to listeners today. Mason thought that appropriation bills should start in the in the house representatives. That was the people's body. The people elected representatives. I am the Senate should not be allowed to amend alter alternate a Senate of course was selective state legislatures representative. The states did not directly represent the people and he thought that what they call the origination clauses are important mass and talk that was fairly tribulation and in the big issue I think convention and this is feel. Songkhla issue about state versus national power headed it with the issue of representation representation mass and mass and believed very strongly that representation in Congress should be based based on population and of course the small states saw that representation in it in at least one house of Congress should reputation reputation should be equal among the states in at least one house of Congress. and Mason was one of the few large delegates that supported what became McCain knows a great compromise or the Connecticut compromise he saw. I is perhaps ironic. He saw that if if the delegates couldn't reach some on compromise on the issue of representation the convention would break up so this delegate who ended up opposing the constitution supported the compromise is it allowed the convention to finish his work fascinating e you just identified these three crucial issues the power of Commerce the question question of appropriations bills which seems more technical but has to do with representation in the Senate and then broadly this question of representation all of which will prove to be central convention colleen. Let's put on the table few other differences between Madison and Mason. When it comes to structural constitution how do they agree and disagree when it came to the powers of the president and the judiciary well Madison what into the convention without a very clear idea of the the executive and his except in terms of the executive and the judiciary he was in favor of what he called a council of revision vision which he pushed for over and over again at the convention but failed to get that passed just could not support for that would have meant had he succeeded in doing that it would have meant that after Congress both houses of of Congress passed a bill that incentive it going just to the president to sign or veto it would go to this council love revision which would be composed of the chief executive along with a certain number of members of the United States Supreme Court? Maybe four something like that so the council might be you know an odd number. Maybe something like five. I've always found that interesting because of of what effect that might have on judicial review right would still the Supreme Court would have I think appropriately the power of judicial review but would they be much less apt to exercise it sense. They've really we already had members of the Rancho really already had their say in working with the council revision so that's one of the interesting things about Paddison view. I think I'm the executive and the Judiciary Mason was one of the people who when they debated the executive in and they were they were the convention was all over the place about what how the president the Jeff it is interesting because Mason Start Aww in a very different place I think if he'd had his way and again he's concerned about about southern interest and sexual interest he he he didn't pushed hard on this but his preference was that the executive might be made up of of one from south one from the mid Atlantic region and and one New England. There wasn't much support for that. I as I recall I think Hugh Williamson of North Carolina support that but there wasn't much support for that and it didn't go any nice and accepted the idea of a single chief executive although he did think that the president is he came to be known should have counsel to advise him the colonial governors of state governors all often had advisory councils or sometimes counsels. We have some real power and that was one of the masons objections to I don't think I think that that nice and had a very clear idea of what of what the president would do or how the president would be selected when he went to fill the the Virginia plan originally proposed at the the national legislature would select the executive. I Yeah I think Madison and probably Mason decided in the Crispin Bates. They wanted to president that was more independent. Uh of the of the legislature than that in came to support the Electoral College Mason again was was mainly concerned concerned that that southern interest be protected he really preferred hoped that they convention would adopt a three member executive executive with representative from the south mid Atlantic states and New England There wasn't much support for that. I think Hugh Williams of North Carolina's reported reported it. There wasn't much sport coat for that among the delegates and Mason didn't didn't push it he did want the president had an advisory council. Executive Councils were were common in the colonies and in the states he thought Oh that'd be another check on the power of the presidency did not favour pop collection of the of the president came to accept the electoral college allege as I recall in the during the ratification of banks that was not a major issue for from from Addis Information. Let's talk now about the the judiciary. Coleen Alexander Hamilton famously predicted that the judiciary would be the least dangerous branch Madison in the federalist most feared Weird Congress as an impetuous vortex that would suck all into its voracious powers but what was Madison vision of the judiciary and contrasted rested with Mason who in opposing ratification of the Constitution of the Virginia Ratify Ratification Convention said that the broad scope of the judiciary kyrie would not only render state courts unnecessary it will destroy the state government with Jeff. I think there's a the reason that Hamilton road all the federalist papers on the judiciary and Madison didn't this is something that Hamilton the lawyer and of course Madison was not a lawyer one of the few who was not a given quite a bit more thought to as I mentioned a previously Madison saw part of the role of the judiciary in the check and balancing role on legislation as part of the council of Revision Vision but he did not want either the president or the judiciary to have the final say the final say was to be of legislation was to be Congress as the closest representatives of the people and of course what what the Judiciary is very far removed fundamentally sourced in the in the power of the people but very far removed from anything close close to direct or even election by the people so madison because Congress was to be the most powerful branch of government government. That's where he wanted us to direct our efforts to check it. I think he like Hamilton was not as concerned concerned because the judiciary had neither neither sword or curse which the executive in Congress did in fact task have now jeff if I could just say a couple words about something that that our other Jeff has talked about that this mason as concerned about southern interest in in protecting those interests I find this very fascinating Madison and Mason both from the Great State of Virginia the state that will produce most of the president's for some time after the establishment of the new constitution but unlike Mason Louis so concerned about the rights of the state of Virginia Genu- particularly the southern interest and we have to remember that Mason and Madison were both slave owners though both of them said many times over talked about their opposition to the institution of slavery at the Convention when the when the debate debate seemed to be over the small states versus large states which took you know basically two months of the life of the convention before we get to the great compromise is on on July sixteenth odd Madison at one point stood up and looked at his fellow delegates and said you know this this fight this conflict. That's being expressed about the large states. Versus small states dates. That's not really what's going on here. The division in the country is between North and South Madison recognized is that the division even in seventeen eighty seven in America had to do with the institution of slavery and and this was something he was very very keen on trying to reduce to alleviate the tensions of breath. I wonder what Jeff Broader thinks. Basins plan would have done regarding that tension that conflict reflect between the North and south over slavery fascinating. We have two large questions on the table that I want to ask Jeff broad water. The first is Mason's objection into the judiciary. Why is it at the Virginia ratifying convention that he said that the federal judiciary was so powerful that it would destroy state governments then tell us about the plan that clean she and refers to when it comes to getting the interests of the north and south and what what Mason thought he was trying to achieve Mason was very concerned about the power of the federal courts who made that a major point in the Virginia ratifying convention he was worried or he did argue that the federal courts would swallow up the the state courts why he was so concerned. Maybe a little bit harder to Maybe a little hard question to answer but in the federal courts were given fairly broad jurisdiction over matters arising under federal law over over litigation between citizens of different states and he thought he thought that was too broad jurisdiction and of course it's a federal law was to be supreme over state law under this Spring Z. Clause of the Constitution and one of them we have to remember is own some of some of Mason's concern. Some of the federals concerns would same the almost paranoid us today today. I mean Mesa Mesa was concerned that Congress might just do some reasonable unreasonable things that perhaps a the federal courts would which is said in Washington in the capital of course Washington and been founded yet and you'd have to go all the way to the capital litigated case ace and it would be very expensive and disadvantage ordinary ordinary citizens but he does the federal courts is real and we gotta remember in in Seventeen Ninety seven seventy-nine hate. The idea of do short view was really not well established. The courts were just really can begin to assert themselves. I think you might almost say that. The constitution was written in Philadelphia. There was another constitutional revolution taking place in the states as is the courts became more became more assertive with regard learn how Mason thought the issue of slavery would be negotiated under his plan with for example those three member the executive. I'm speculating here. Mason never really addressed the the issue directly but as in his living in an era where slavery has not yet become the great moral issue. It's a it's a political issue and as it was really well into the eighteen hundreds and I think that amazing would probably save pushed pushed him on this that if you gave the north and south you know roughly equal leverage they they would simply negotiate some some political settlement settlement an amazing support the end of the foreign slave trade. He never complained about the probation of slavery in the in in the Northwest Territory. He was one of those founders who I think considered slavery necessary evil and was you. I'm willing to entertain the idea that at some point in the future some point future slavery can be put on a road to abolition as you suggest I mason was critical of slavery although a slave older himself he believed that the slave trade was an evil that he could not condone and the question of why he didn't free a few of his slaves as Jefferson did or freedom all is Washington did you you raise an and say as a difficult to answer you right. Mason never seen defensive about his glaring inconsistency in all likelihood Mason believed or convinced himself that he had no options coline. Tell us about the constitutional relevance of the debate over the future of slavery at the Constitutional Convention. What were the various positions wins and what was the meaning of the infamous three fifths compromise and was Madison's position versus Masons on this question act walks well. Matheson was very clear throughout his life that he thought slavery was a moral wrong and his notes on government that he writes right after the institution the new constitution he actually says explicitly there that in in the states in America were slavery exists the not really republics. They're not Republican. They are more aristocratic and oligarchy and the three fifths compromise at the constitutional convention that was supported by so many of the delegates north and south was not a new thing. It was a compromise already made under the articles of confederation. It was one of the mistakes that people make today is to think that the three fifths compromise means that those held in slavery were counted as three fifths of a person that is not at all with that compromise means. Madison is very clear that that all human beings WCHS including those held in slavery black and white and any color are full human beings. He talks about this in federalist fifty four for example that those who are held in bondage are seen in the unnatural light of property when what they they really are of course this person's so with the three fifths compromise meant was when the delegates from places like North Carolina south of Carolina Georgia especially like rutledge in the Pekingese pronounced to the convention that there are the the people of their states would accept the constitution on if would would not accept the constitution. If anything was done to touch what's the institution of slavery. If the other delegates wanted Georgia South Carolina North Carolina reported this the Union they had to make some compromise on that and of course they wanted to keep the union together because allowing North Carolina South Carolina in Georgia to to be a separate confederacy of sorts would not have free to single slave. The whole idea was to pull people together and work. You're in the future towards the elimination slavery or at least many many many of the founders explicitly said and they said it so many many times and set it on the floor of the Convention gouverneur more stood up on the floor of the convention you can see him tall and flamboyant and stamping his egg laid on the floor and shouting that slavery is the curse of Evan Roof. His King says something similar and you can just Z. People like Charles Coats were Pinkney and General Pinkney and John Rutledge maybe sort of shrinking in their chairs a little bit they never defended the institution Russian of Slavery Rutledge and pink knees on the floor but they did express the views of the people of their state that they would not accept at this constitution. If if the institution of Slavery were abolished they were absolutely clear on that so the other delegates knew that if they were going to preserve the union do anything about slavery in the future there had to be a compromise one other point on that that I think is interesting. What compromise means for this was that they were not. They understood themselves as not compromising the principal. They were putting forth a practical way to deal with this issue to keep the Union together so that slavery slavery could be abolished in the future now. Jessica fight the just say are one more word on Madison's view of slavery his his own personal view. Why didn't he free his slaves. I this involves some speculation. We know he didn't free slaves. We also we know that he had a spendthrift stepson that he was constantly bailing out for his younger wife. Dolley Todd Madison and I think that he was very concerned about up to Dolly's future when he passed away her financial future because of the problems her son had had presented. I think he hit from Dolly some of the debts he was paying for Dahlie son because pained her so watch now. There is some speculation jeff which is very interesting. I don't have any evidence for this but it's one of those sort of I don't know if we want to call it rumors or that that's been passed down for generation upon generation that is that Madison actually left a note that was read by others that had to do with freeing his slaves upon the death of Dolly it. Is that true or not. There's lots and lots of speculation about that but if it's true either the note was destroyed or at this point. We haven't found it. There's still many Madison papers out there that are yet to be discovered. I suspect because once again the stepson actually took some of Madison's papers and sold them so we're still finding writings of Madison and putting those that's together well. Madison papers yet to be discovered sounds very Davinci code like and I know that every we the people listener will be waiting breathlessly in their publication Jeff. Tell us more about this paradox of Mason on one among the Virginia delegates one of those who denounced announced slavery most vigorously on the other slave owner who didn't fail as the free his own slaves and tell us about about his position on slavery at the Convention. I think my son's position on slavery was very ares. Sumer to Madison's. You could probably read a quote from from one of them and you might not be able to identify which one it came from I think Mason thought slayers moral evil. He thought it was bad for Virginia's economic development. He thought it was bad for the character of Weinstein Lights on slaves. He thought they learned cruelty as a slave masters but he never ever freed. We never freed slaves. This is one area particularly where I wish we had more of a Mason's papers. Madison's published papers run to dozens of volumes mason didn't make much effort to save anything his published papers roundabout under by about three volumes but I I think that that Mason probably shared while I was a common attitude in Virginia and his Madison felt this way. Jefferson felt this way that the quacks and freed slaves just couldn't couldn't live together. They were two different they'd been to a too difficult history and they just wouldn't be able to coexist and until some way could be found to to separate the two races. Slavery was was not practical. There was also of course economic. You know the incentive Mason had I believe it was nine children survived to adulthood. He didn't WanNa do anything that would they would jeopardize their their future about by Frayne his flies but as far as specific comments during the convention then late in the ratification Asiana by the one point that I can remember where I believe he disagrees with with with Madison was the question question of some federal tax on sleighs and I believe Madison says and I think this is the conscious convention. They didn't laugh the idea because he didn't lacking admitting the constitution there can be property men which authorizing attacks on slaves would do that I think and in another another point point Mason says but not attacks slave imports would be the equivalent of a bounty on slice so they're both opposed to slavery but they disagree on the on the way to to to reflect opposition now when you when you get to the ratification convention Mason's position becomes a little bit harder to to maybe characterize because in one speech basically in one breath he criticizes the constitution for not protecting slavery and at the same time he criticizes the Constitution for making the slave trade to continue for another twenty years. The constitution said that Congress couldn't ban slavery in June twenty years after his adopted the only way I can reconcile although I mean you you could say expediency the binding points. He's he's trying to sue to be a slave. Live owners and people have reservations about slavery is he was opposed to slavery but he thought that that if the abolition of slavery should be left to the states again he wouldn't right wouldn't trust the northern majority to to to to to manage that process very interesting and that would explain the apparent inconsistency between his strong statements against slavery at the Convention and as you say his objection at the convention that it was not possible to tax slaves which interestingly trust with Madison's crucial claim the Constitution should take no position on whether there could be property in men and attributing that to his concern for states rights helps us understand a the tension between him and Madison. Let's turn finally to the central issue that divided Madison and Mason and one where Mason one and history thanks him and that's the lack of a bill of rights colleen. This is more familiar story to some we the people listeners but why was it the Madison initially opposed a bill of rights but came to support it and what was Mason's role in persuading him to change his mind well Madison a of course was opposed to bill right at the constitutional convention but during the ratification debates with people like Edmund Randolph and George Mason of Virginia persuading many of the people in Virginia or perhaps reflecting their views there ought to be a bill of rights in the constitution in order not to undergo calling second convention which Madison thought would be autism faster. We'd never get a constitution out of it. We were it was hard enough. The first time that he said publicly that he would support a bill of rights in the first Congress should he be there obviously elected as a congressman and that's precisely what he did early early on in the first congress of the United States Madison introduced a series of amendments that became known as the bill of rights now why was does he opposed to begin with and then agree to later. He explains himself on this. He was opposed to a bill of rights because he was very worried that it would mean that listing rights that you put that in the constitution these are the rights and liberties of to to be protected in the constitution that there would be a presumption that rights not listed would be considered writes not protected by the Constitution not protected tech under law and so that that would be dangerous to the rights and liberties of the American people. He said that in Great Britain government grants France rights to the people but in the United States it's the opposite it's the people who Graham powers to the government so all rights are reserved to to the people and to the states respectively so the idea of delegated or an enumerated powers that any power is not given into the government the government does have which is one of the reasons he wasn't so concerned about the judiciary because he didn't see them as being sort lord of runaway judiciary that many people think the judiciary has become and the twentieth and twenty first century like George Mason predicted did and the anti-federalist brutus predicted. They seem to have been right about that eventual a alternately now so madison thought that though if if we were going to have a bill of rights had to be done was to articulate these rights as clearly and comprehensively a handsomely as possible. That's why there's the ninth amendment that basically says don't assume that everything listed here are the only rights of the people so it's to make sure that we know that it's not government who gives people rights. It's people who give powers to the government that is critical in the American can constitutional system and it's part of a necessary part of what it means for the people to be softened the idea popular sovereignty eighty Jeff Brewer Mason in the bill of rights. This is his greatest legacy. He championed it from the beginning. He said one could be written a few hours. I at the end of the convention. All you have to do is cut and paste among the state declarations which in the end is precisely what Madison did a drawing primarily on Mason's own for junior declaration as well as others so tell us about Mason's vision of a bill of rights and why he thought it was necessary and what is the significance of his triumph on this question. Mason did raise the issue toward the end of the convention. It's a mystery why he didn't raise the issue earlier. an-and the timing was bad. I think by the time he raised the issue. A lot of the delegates were ready to go home. They'd been there for about three months but of course he was the perfect person to raise the issue because he'd written the Virginia Declaration of Rights and he I think he invasion and really a bill of rights sort of two parts one would be a statement of fundamental political the principles that all man I think as he put in the declaration were born equally free and independent they had a right to laugh liberty property property happiness and safety which of course Jefferson took to that language and became the second paragraph of the Declaration of independence and then Madison wanted to Mason and Mason WanNa protect certain fundamental individual rot got a prime most important they free religion which is an issue is very important and also important important of Madison and we've been talking about mass mass in Mason's differences but earlier in their career they were they were playing allies and one of the issues I worked together on which was to expand freedom origin in Virginia and so by seventeen eighty seven declaration riots were bill right is become something that most Americans expect expect to see in your state cost to Sion's and we got God's remember before seventy seven in the field healthy convention. Americans have spent roughly a decade Ryan State Constitutions. People people expected to see so mason raises the issue. I gets no support. It's noted down the unanimously and then toward the end of the convention Iraq's objections to the Constitution as opposed. I would have to be the first first written document and he begins with this complaint that there's no no declaration of rights and it became the anti-federalist most popular argument against the Constitution Anti federalist had a lot of raised issues disagreement among the anti-federalist list on different issues but there was general agreement for the now on the need for a declaration of rights and it put a great deal of pressure on on Madison Addison. Thomas Jefferson courses the American Minister to France this time Jefferson Rats Masson tells me think they should've added. It'd mill rise the constitution. The Baptist in Virginia are raising the issue because they want a federal protection for freedom of religion so he's under pressure from from them that becomes important when he runs congress lighter and the ratifying convention after they voted or out of the the constitution they're recommends the series of amendments including amendments dealing with with religion so is is calling. You said it's Madison. That actually puts them together when he's elected. The first Congress does really remarkable job of pushing them through. We're pretty apathetic congress but it's Mason I think that that that deserves credit for starting the the the momentum that little edited option the Bill Colorado and I had a good job explaining mass madison change in position. I want other factor. Dr In masses thinking when he gets to Congress he realizes that the addition of the bill of rights will go a long way why toward appeasing some of the more moderate anti-federalist and increase support for the new government and enhance legitimacy so he he's got a number of reasons to to to to change his mind and in a number of reasons going to oppose the addition of the bill of rights before the constitutions ratified well it is time for a closing thoughts in this utterly fascinating discussion about Madison Versus Mason and their influence in the constitutional convention action. It's too simplistic I think to sum up this rich discussion into viewing Madison as the exemplar of of federal power and Mason as the exemplar of states rights so I'm going to ask you first Kalin to sum up in in light of this rich discussion with the competing constitutional visions of Madison and Mason were well. I think for Mason I mean he does uh-huh facilities at towards the end of the convention why he doesn't in the beginning. I don't know maybe he just suspected that a bill of rights would be included in the constitution after after all it was Virginia and most of the state constitutions. He is just adamant that that's a problem and and many many many other people in the United States followed him including delegates at Edmund Randolph for one eldredge Gary for another that no bill of rights no ratification the constitution he just dug his heels in on that it's interesting into think of that day. September seventeenth seventeen eighty seven that we now call constitution day when all of the delegates you know Matt Ed once again for the last time before they adjourned sine die at what we now call independence hall in Philadelphia and they they walked up to George Washington's desks to sign this document but of course there were three of them who didn't sign it over to Gary Edmund Edmund Randolph and George Mason what were they. What was it like for them. When everyone else was celebrating everyone went to the city tavern afterwards down Second Street. What did they do. They spent that whole summer from May a until September seventeenth working sacrificing to make this new constitution but in the end couldn't put the John John Hancock as it were on the document you know it must it must have been awfully important to them to have the bill of rights. It's for them not to sign with their fellow colleagues and people they very much respected including George Washington. Turn that document that they contributed so much to the last thing I'd like to say in summary Jeff is Madison's most known for the structure of the Constitution the institutions separation of powers checks and balances some people call it a machine that would go of itself when you've written this the people in their character don't really matter because it's all these institutions and checks and balances set me for good government that was not Madison's view. Madison thought that the character of the American people what we believe leave what we cherish not just his generation but for generations to calm were always sort of paying forward that you can't have a republic without Republican citizens that civic education learning the tools of self government was most crucial the thing to not only have a republic but his Quinn said to keep it. This is the work of course for all of us not just then under for all of us today. Thank you for those eloquent final thoughts. Jeff brought order. The last word is to you if you could sum up the competing in constitutional visions of James Madison and George Mason that would be wonderful and colleen is right and and I think both Madison and Mason recognize the importance of cultivating civic engagement in in responsible citizenship. I think I think that the Madison believe though that the federal government could serve a role as a check on the states and I think that that Mason was so suspicious of government at any level. I don't think that he had much confidence any level of government. I want to check another one man. Madison in the federalist papers and elsewhere talks about the ability of the of the state's government deserves. There's a check on federal power. I don't recall Mason saying that so he's much more suspicious of government as a result. wants to really impose more restrictions on on the federal government. I think he'd impose more restrictions on the state and local governments if that they had been before in a state constitutional convention but he he wants to put more structural limitations on the federal that'll garment. I'll just give one example. We had chance to talk about. He was opposed the federal taxing power. He thought it the States Congress. Could I should've done on the articles requisition funds from the states and only the states refused to to to satisfy the requisition could impose taxes and there's just one of several kinds of structural limitations he wanted to put on the government on the federal government but I was that was that was amazing difference between but between the two they both believed in the importance of what we might call good citizenship but I I think Madison massenet greater confidence in the ability to to to to structure the responsible free government. I think Mason's ought to human nature being what it was fighting corruption in government. It would just be an ongoing problem however the gunman was structured. Thank you so much clench.

Mason and Ireland [HR 2]

"All right do you watch most of the game bears packers i did. I had it on mute for a while but it was on the entire time. Nothing was really happening at all aw yeah. It was really bringing but here's my thing that i took out of that. Mitch trubisky was awful and everyone's writing off today yeah but then reminding me we all wrote off jared goff. Matt nagy is a good coach well yeah and this is not not. This is not mitch trubisky's first years as third years his third year. I mean there's a difference between jared goff gone owen seven with twenty seven sacks in year one right and mitch trubisky in year. Look at where jared goff was in year three last year. I think thirty five touchdowns in twelve picks or in that in that general vicinity. I think trubisky trubisky was so bad last night that they now the jury's out on him. I mean the thing that last year they won twelve games. They were a forty eight yard. Phil goal away from going. You know winning a playoff yeah the double dunk and trubisky with that defense. Everybody said the bears are set. He looks so bad that i bet matt. Nagy in the back of his mind is telling his g._m. We can extend the sky. We gotta wait because is it an and keep this in mind. They traded up to get him yup. In the same draft where trubisky went to both to shawn watson and patrick mahomes went later right they passed onto shawn watson and patrick edrich mall. I mean steve. He didn't look could complete a he had one pass over twenty yards. I look it's really fun to overreact to game once when he was eleven and three as a starter last year he did throw twenty. Four touchdown passes versus twelve picks <hes> he did run on <hes>. He also ran <hes> for five touchdowns. <hes> i mean i it's it's i'm sure you're going nuts in chicago <hes> but it is still one game yeah and by the way and green bay didn't look better and green bay actually said one of their defense back accent after the game. We we knew trubisky was that we wanted him to have to play quarterback but i mean aaron. Rodgers didn't exactly light it up last now. We just you neither iraq. Did you hear sure oh no as a breaking breaking dodgers. Do the breaking dodgers news then <music> ads predicted on this show yesterday ken grzanich reporting that hundred and re you will be skipped at least one start art. Okay there you go they would say to he's had four bad starts in a row still might win the cy young award yeah but he's had four bad starts in a row. So did you hear the way referee. Tony called the very first first down of the twenty nine. I got twenty one thousand nine season. No listen to this had happened <hes> last night very i. I on the holding defense number holding technical problem defense. It's number ninety seven. How why did he do that have no idea where they used to have that mix that fun red <hes> red cashing yeah used to say fresh down was it was very very it was the first game of the one hundredth yes seizing like did you notice concert than al michaels and michelle. We're all dressed. I i felt bearing there so badly for them. I thought that was ridiculous. <hes> michelle's the only one who did it for the whole game. Yeah cons worth and michaels. I had a basically zoot suits on. I thought it was ridiculous off their coats. I would not have signed off on that and michelle. Michelle was dress worth like somebody like betty. Boop loop right look good. It was very much a period. I did not get that. I mean i get it but i don't it was it was better better in in thought than it wasn't practice. Here's one more time toni corinto defense number ninety seven <music>. He's laughing like it's almost like somebody dared him to do something that was that was the highlight of the game for me yeah right there tony karenni. I retain yesterday about a team that it made the playoffs last year. That's going to be out this year. Yes if the bears don't fix their offense. It's the bears because their offense was didn't even look like an n._f._l. N._f._l. Offense trubisky was either forty five passes. He didn't even throw for three hundred yards. It is the smallest of small sample sizes yeah. It's one game yeah and you know. None of these guys played in the preseason. They're probably not rare have one very sorry aaron rodgers dr where he took the team like ninety yards in one minute and thirty seconds yet after that he didn't do anything yeah all right tomorrow night u._s._c. versus stanford at the coliseum. Who's bet this game. I bet this game. I did greg. Did we all did you did john tournament parlor. Farley got stanford in my twenty five hundred mythical dollars on <hes> stan minus the two and a half minute minus mine is too good. We have at plus two and a half or stanford j._t. Daniels's out stanford's quarterback. Jay castillo is out. Keaton slovaks will get the start start for u._s._c. and here's the thing they obviously did not they. They did not open the playbook for him in the second half last week when he took over for j._t. Daniels and he was a little wide eyed as he was on the field. During that second half <hes> he was six of eight completed one long touchdown pass through one bad interception. They've they've got to go out there and open the playbook and run exactly the same offense that they would if it was j._t. Daniels they absolutely really have to or they're not going to stand a chance in this game but the air raid was kind of built for a kid like j. daniels who had a big arm. I don't know if this grand the air raid all through high school as quarterbacks coach coach was was kurt warner. He ran this. They ran the air raid at his high school out in arizona so he's not this. He's not a stranger to this trojan running running backs were were great and i think we'll see a lot of payet tomorrow night. <hes> the receiving core is fantastic for tyler vons michael pittman. I'm unrest saint brown. Vela's jones dynamic kick returner and stanford does not have a christian put vail jones out there to return kicks pocket seven to start the game just to throw everybody off. Can you imagine if they play the pocket sevens and the first u._s._c. returned the opening kick ninety yards last saturday but it didn't count because they had to guys wearing number seven thank c._e._o. Clay helton c._e._o. Of the program hey they still look better than u._c._l._a. Yeah yeah i mean i'd better look better than u._c._l._a. U._c._l._a. at home against san diego state eight point favorite not touch in that game yeah no i didn't. I didn't see it. I wasn't even here. I was on vacation so i didn't see the game but you describe it was just a a disaster was the hindenburg yeah. It was really really bad. Hey the rams have just released their injury report. Okay all right you ready breath ready for sunday first name todd gurley knee <hes> what's the word that comes after it participation status took scheduled days off in training camp after kevin modesto. Who is the the <hes> i went to college with kevin who is covering the ramps of the daily news this year. <hes> says his official status is available. Okay cooper cup on the injury report me <hes> but he <hes> his status is available and he'll play aaron neary. He's at the starting. Center is not ankle well. He had a fractured ankle in august. He's uninjured reserve mike at kaiser. He's the guy that has the torn peck muscle. He's out for the year justin lawler. You're foot had foot surgery in august. He is out for the year but that's it. That's the extent of the injury now i can. I just say the rams have tweeted out the injury report and they say no injuries to report. This is digging deeper. I mean right but the official injury report for the rams says no injuries to report. That's very different from what i'm very interested to see what how they use curly. He's unleashed. Just as far as i know. What does that mean how many touches that i look unleash means twenty-five touches there. You go twenty gene. We're in a fight by the way this is all spitballing because we don't know we got no clue exactly how he i'm just going to totally yes. We don't know how much it's him and how much it's malcolm brown stole malcolm brown in our fantasy draft. I got him in the last round yeah. No he's gonna get a shot yeah. He'll he'll score some touchdown. He's also so the natural girly handcuff right. I don't know who took earlier which which makes him valuable but no todd gurley unleashed. I'll tell you what why don't we go to carolina next next. You want to go to carolina next and talk to lindsay theory excellent idea already there. Let's do that. Yes she's already.

E._s._p._n. l._a. In ireland would is up today. Today is friday and it's all happening in an afternoon drive. Now you like that slow. I do well. I like it more for your cheating here to say caller up. I wonder if lindsay i'm i'm thinking lindsey probably doesn't share my passion for vander pump rule lindsey theory. Do you watch grander pump rules. I watch a lot of garbage t._v. But i can't say that that is on the list when you start you will. You don't think that launch you start. Both both lindsey both me and masons partner one are avid do not miss an episode of vander paroles fans and for some reason sheena gina one of the girls on their thought. It was important to tattoo the words. It's all happening all across her forearm which you can steal if you want what you are free to do that if you if you think that's a good look tempting. I think i might have happened. I don't play. I don't blame you so you're down there in carolina one of the big questions is ah the weather. The hurricane dorian has has. I know that it's in the region of the carolinas. Is it affecting the weather there at all. You know i'm actually actually not in carolina yet. I meant it's getting the hartsfield jackson international airport and waiting to get on the plane but from what i've been told that whether there should not be affected in charlotte charlotte all right so a lot of people anxious to see how the rams rebound because most of these guys lindsey the last time we saw him was in the super bowl and last last last night both mitch trubisky and aaron rodgers looked really rusty now. I'm trying to remember last year against the raiders in week. One jared goff started slow. Kinda came on at the end right yeah. That's how i remember. It started off a little bit slow but i think by the second half they definitely picked it up or sore. Are they worried about the fact that none of these guys played in preseason or are they allowing for the fact that it may take a while to get this offense up going. It's been a couple of guys who've said that there might be rusty there for a minute and a couple of guys on defense who's spoken about how they haven't actually tackled anybody to the ground all preseason <hes> and then on offense of course arthur's if you guys like hey might take a few minutes to get going but i don't think there's any concern or any real worry that their offense won't find rhythm at some point during the game okay so yesterday you wrote a story and the headline was todd gurley to be unleashed in carolina as it's very excited about this and lindsey and i know we don't write the headlines but he's repeated. May you know i don't write had life. I know i got very excited. Keeps yelling randomly unleash. Least i think very excited when i saw that headline to what do you think unless does the headline writer no something yeah well. I think that the headline <hes> we just get past the headline. I sean mcveigh is todd. Gurley would be on any kind. The snap count and mcveigh said no now. Let's let's examine that they didn't think that means that todd gurley is going to be <hes> unleashed like maybe twenty twenty eighteen todd gurley or twenty seventeen todd gurley. I think that that might take on a new definition this year because they have malcolm brown because they have daryl henderson so i think sean mcvay is being truthful when he says the todd gurley won't be on the snap count however i think that <hes> maybe be look of the rotation of running back will be a little bit different this year so we were trying to like project how many touches girly is likely to get lindsey and like you said in in two thousand eighteen twenty seventeen not me was a thirty five to thirty touches a game. Is it reasonable to expect that that's going to be between maybe fifteen twenty even if he's healthy yeah that's about what i i predicted. <hes> i think it's about fifteen to twenty touches obviously a few of those touches last season about three to five the game or catching passes out of the backfield so i think if you can say fifteen or twenty touches <hes> obscene more runs than as interceptions but i think that's a really safe number to go to my malcolm. Brown runs a lot like todd gurley. <hes> and he's that type of back darrell henderson is a completely a different kind of back. How do you expect henderson to be used. I think gerald used a lot like how taught is what i've watched. I've been really impressed with his ability. Catch passes out of the backfield. That is a difficult skill in running back. <hes> are known to be great bash opposite aramco and a great one and todd gurley but i really think that's how we'll see your henderson mused out there and and for two point malcolm brown i think has been so underestimated estimated the last couple of seasons like you said he's a strong runner. He's also guys that can catch passes out of the backfield so i think it's gonna be malcolm brown up for a sterile henderson in there but but i really think we're gonna see more dynamic usage of the running back from sean mcvay. I don't think she's going to the girlie show anymore. We're talking to lindsay theory who covers the rams not only for us support for e._s._p._n. Across the board she'll be carolina when the rams play week one against the panthers ten a._m. On sunday you can hear the game here on e._s._p._n. L._a. Okay lindsey. They've added a couple of big names to the defense clay matthews and eric weddell both who who have great reputations as being key players players in their past when they were younger or the how much should we expect to see those guys on the field huettl matthews. Are we talking every down. Alan guys defensively situation guys how much you think we'll see those two. I think their starters. I think they will be on the field most of the time now i do think there's a situations all dispelled simpson and the economy. That's out there on the edge that can come in also. They're going to find a way to use taylor wrap the rookie safety at a walking because they're gonna find a way to use him in the secondary for i would not be shocked if he comes on the field a little bit more but also we have to remember the eric. He's a single caller out there so i think he's gonna be on the field loss <hes> given that voted green captain so i think for wells production decline is there because he is surrounded by muslim dynamic playmakers in that secondary and then matthews is a pretty big impact off the edge lindsey you tweeted yesterday and you're the first person i saw pointed at you mentioned. That weddell is a team captain tin. Noticeably missing from that captains list was todd gurley who has been a captain for the past three years. Is that something or nothing in your opinion. The well in my opinion is someone who played collegiate sports play sports my whole life. I think it was something <hes> you know. You're a captain for three years and then in your fourth year. You're not oughta captain anymore. <hes> i think when you look at the rest or they had so many leaders and they added eric weddell this year keep delete voted a captain <hes> the other ones were andrew jared goff aaron donald and johnny hacker with no like those guys aren't old deserving captain but to me. It's just like it's it's after with todd gurley. You know i think he's fine. He's clearly not signed and they go they bring mouth and brown back and then they go raft after another running back todd practicing every other day and now he's not a captain so it's just like all these little things adding up and i think it is a big deal. Other people might disagree but to me. He's your star back. You're you put everything you have behind him and to not have a cabinet here just a little bit in the gray area one of the the big questions. I think i have about this team right now. Lindsay is the offensive line with joe note boom and brian allen stephan and brian allen at <hes> center. What have you seen seen from them. During training camp and how do you think they will replace <hes> john sullivan and especially john sullivan took training camp is kind of a place to get a really good evaluation them to their and their defense they are going against aaron. Donald most of the practices tis which i think aaron donald can make any even wind the quite silly but talking to their teammates talking to some of the guys on offense. They seem really confident and brian and dan joe. I think brian in particular is going to physically he should be an upgrade from john sullivan now johnson and they intangible and just how smart he wasn't communist how much experience he had the really hard for brian to duplicate or replicate the season <hes> some more of that responsibility will fall to some other guys <hes> joe boom. I think that he is on the rise. But of course you're not going to replay the brick wall roger apple there are so so that's not going to be quite a great lindsey. Theory is our guest lindsey last thing for me. Are they preparing for cam newton as if they're going to get a one hundred percent healthy cam newton newton played in preseason game. He hurt his leg. They benched him and said. We hope you'll be ready for week. One well here we are weak. One is in two days are the rams expecting newton to be his usual dual threat cells. They're not taking cam newton lightly. He wasn't on the injury report this week and they are expecting him to be a full. Go and those guys obviously know what a what a challenge whether he's running the football whether he's passing football on <hes>. It's a it's a huge challenge presley week one win <hes>. This is really the first football. These guys go have played since the super bowl so i don't think the defense is taken tim whiteley or planning running for any kind of contingency from the panthers offense on that front all right. Hey lindsey thank you very much. We're excited for the game on sunday and looking forward to your coverage also looking forward to see todd haad girly unleashed in carolina travel safe lindsey see. I got so excited about the word unleash. Yes obviously and what i would say to you is. She doesn't write that lines <music>. Five o'clock has fasttrack. Make sure here for that anyway. What time does our pre game show starting sunday four in the morning for ten a._m. Game it probably should what starts with pre game so we are so seven a._m. Yup what time is the mom. I don't have a confirmation when the mind of mason report is going to be.

L._a. sufficiently initially football season. I mean that was the first first down of the year last night during a bears packers by the way somebody suggests afternoon drive in ireland unleashed not bad gladys could as it's all happening. No i like. It's all happening. I also like tearing up afternoon drive yeah. That's stupid all right so i asked you to pull up a list of the games this yeah right so picking up set pick a team. There's you know there's going to be at least one in the first week. Pick a team. That's an underdog that you think has the best chance to win. I wanna see if we land on the same team. Okay underdog with a chance is to win the best chance to win so i'll hear i'll give you the okay. Falcons vikings the falcons. The underdog reds deals skins so i think we're gonna end up on the same team. Okay give me give me <hes>. I'm gonna go pittsburgh over new england yeah. I don't think that's i think that's happening. I think it's the titans the titans were you just hate cleveland. You you know brass. I actually like the titans. They were pretty good last year. I think marcus mariota is just a guy at this point but the debut but there's there's gonna be. There's gonna be an upset somewhere. It's going to be new england. Pittsburgh's going to beat new england. It's new england in new england. Yes maryland selenium rams shut up all right so the other thing is gonna ask you guys is do any of you play n._b._a. Two k. i do not play m._b._a. Time okay so fun. She played yeah okay so the new version of n._b._a. Two k. which is called to k twenty just came out today right correct launch day okay. Maybe no this great if you do sit this out but i just looked at the list of the top ten rated players ears in the game you know they do this fell. See you many of the top ten you can get it okay. I'll give you three strikes and you're you're out but there's ten players in the nineties space. Okay all right so lebron. Brian is tied for number. One with lebron is ninety seven seven and the ease at hyde with kawhi brian and kawhi so you've got the talk yes. Jaanus is tied for third. Ah ninety six one point behind the brunt with two others. I think anthony davis anthony davis is number. Seven a rating of ninety four four james harden his james harden is tied with janas. Take a shot at who the other guy is that's tied with hardin janas with a rating of ninety six neck keep in mind. These were based on how these guys played last season or most recently kevin durant correct kevin durant is the other one so that's your top five lebron coli at ninety seven yep jaanus harden and durant at ninety six now the knicks five. You have anthony davis and you need four more. I would think steph is in there. I can't see i would say steph. Steph is actually one spot ahead of anthony. Steph is ninety five all right so you're you're only missing number eight number nine and number ten. I would assume russell westbrook would be up in the nineties. Yeah he's going to be there. Your first christmas ten what lau <hes> paul george paul george number very good bye paul george with a score of ninety three so you're just missing a guy ninety two and ninety one damian lillard yeah correct damian loaded ninety two and you're just missing number ten and with the score of ninety one now. I wonder if you only have one strike we we we only one strike kyri or clay. What you know can't be clan. Well allow kyri. No it can't be insane but i would say kyri strike to <music>. No no. It's not no no hints. You should get it. Thank through this a little bit her okay. I'll give you a one hit eastern conference easterners <hes> what do you think <hes> what about <hes> joel embiid <hes> yeah joel pingo ninety one one so here's the less clay and both in russell westbrook. I wonder if clay it's affected by the fact that he's not gonna play because ransacking to play play and he was right there so it's lebron ninety seven jaanus harden into rant ninety-six curry ninety five davis ninety four george ninety three lillard ninety two embiid ninety-one now. I actually think embiid's should be higher. I think he should be higher than anyone. Would you rather impede or paul george. I i think in the n._b._a. Two can be more unstoppable. It's whether or not embiid can be healthy yeah same thing with paul george though i'd make embiid more like a ninety three or ninety four but other than that i can kind of agree circled around there pretty. Well good coming up next. Are we actually going to do. Are we gonna play the mom. I think we should we should play the market so explain with the mom is so every rams pregame show others feature called mind of mason which ireland has decided is going to be called the mom my mason mom now greg in honor of n._b._a. Two k. being released me. You will each give the mom a score really really be more like a ninety seven like lebron or more like ninety to like lillard or will it not get an a. We'll get a b. or a c.

I like to call it the mom now. What is the goal of the mom. We're going to preview the first mom here in play for the goal is to promote the mason in ireland show okay so i think everybody here at the station is doing like a little feature that will run during the pre game show and mind mason is just going to be whatever i think. I should say about the game okay so right. That's basically it's going to think it's it's going to hair line in the seven a._m. Our on sunday why why did i not get prime-time that every depends attend. The game starts arts. This game starts at ten. I wanted that nine a._m. When they play at like five o'clock on thursday you will you'll be on the two o'clock hour which is prime time but now is your opportunity to hear the i might have mason because let's be honest very few of you will be listening at seven a._m. Wake up early on sunday and then greg funchess and i will each give the mind of mason a score like they do the n._b._a. Two k. because n._b._a. Two k. came out today. Fund hit it. What's rattling around in the mind of mace minded people sam dreamer. The only here is steve mason. I this is the first mind of mason john riff incredibly site for the new season first off since the return of the rams have been a season ticket holder section six part of the ramle this year because of the renovations at the coliseum. I'm a now in section one. Oh five be so come by say hey anytime including the home opener next week against gnarly now i am still even after seven months. I still get sick. When i think about the super bowl i was there. We paid her own way. We bought our own tickets. It's and it was crushing so i'm looking forward to turn the page today tough game at carolina traveling across the country cam newton healthy the christian mccaffrey really good so as d._j. More now. I think there's going to be a bunch of points on the board this way the over under fifty and i like the over mike kita did the game is the way the rams offensive line especially brian allen and joe noteboo handled the new multi-front carolina defense sometimes four three sometimes sometimes three four but give jared goff a clean pocket let them connect with cooks and woods and especially cooper third and cup is officially back. I'm calling this one big for the rams thirty eight twenty three at carolina azer sir actually scoring this scored it on several friends first of all greg bergman. What do you rate the very first mom of two thousand nineteen the mind of mason feature well. I thought the beginning started off. Very fluffy wasn't okay to it for the beginning so i was very disappointed. That philosophy is fluffy. We were talking talking about how what you how you are upset about the game last year where section you were in. What was it wasn't. It was my mind. It's my mind has no substance to it. I wasn't a fan started already getting better towards the second half and because it got better on the second half i will give it an eighty three okay three. What is your assessment assessment of the first of may production value on this was very good. Thank you nothing to do with that. The music was awesome. Yes it kind of goes with your personality. Persson highly hand selected. It was selected by you yeah a couple points for good. I'm going to go with a ninety six or kevin durant turkey. Their focus is the funchess is my man. That's what i'm talking about. Okay so <hes> first of all you want to go before you away george. Would you like to join in evaluating valuating. The mom yeah i i did listen to it. I did love the music it is it does <hes> i thought much greg though you kinda came out of the box a little winey about last year and really was unnecessary because we're talking about this year so because of that eye doctor a few points but i gave you a solid ninety which puts you in an in alaska nice nice. I liked that. I liked that. I see the alliance live okay so i have several thoughts on the mom yup. I unlike my colleagues don't think the music fits you. I think the music is too mellow. I think we need it. Sounds sounds like something i would here. Do you have serious. It sounds like something i would hear on the bridge or on the yacht rock. The rock channel yeah very area yacht rocky sunk and you are more kind of your personality is more like indy. I think we need some chili peppers or some. I think we need some dries kind of all your you panic at the disco. That's a really good point now. I had nothing to do with music by the way i was lying. Okay take your points away fun now. Who who cares what section you're in the games. This is a road game that should have been in the next mom picking nits by okay. The the music needs to be more suited. Your personality polity save the come. See me in my section when there's actually a game in los angeles and most of all you failed miserably in what your or objective is. Which is what what did you what did i say first of all. Tell me what the objective of the mom is and what's the very first thing you said. What's my mind no. Do you remember what he you said. You said it was to promote the mason and you didn't mention the mason in ireland show. You failed miserably even if i just throw at the end i'm steve mason you you can hear me in my new afternoon drive. Actually that's a federal. You failed miserably. That's here jack give of the mom but having said all although i tell you at excellent enthusiasm yes i thought excellent name dropping. Yes dropped in several panthers and then fathered by dropping shopping in several rams. I thought that was excellent. I'm giving you a very solid but yet could be seriously improved eighty six eighty six. We're on the same page for a first week. That is not bad. I mean it's just ramping it up. We're just ramping up the man. I'm telling you right now. I'll give you three points out of the gate. If you promote our show ah next week that's legit complaint next folkets happening matter of fact that was really stupid. I think you should do it twice and you should do it in the beginning. Hey steve mason from afternoon drive three to six thirty. Here's what i think bub-bubba and at the end you say remember catch me every day three to six thirty minute time slot go go ramps and there's gonna be all happening at the end of it. Yell turn if you work order in three more points. Okay there so you could bring it up to a ninety two just by promoting the show and dropping your every friday at four thirty we will play the mom you'll get a sneak preview of the mind in case. You're not listening on sunday. 'cause some people don't and all in all i see on average okay so bergman and gave you the lowest grade. Eighty-three funchess gave you the highest grade ninety six synonymous. You averaged like an eighty seven in point five. That's pretty good. That's pretty good. You know it's weird is bergman has become like my nemesis. Everything i think and say he takes the opposite side. I mean it's kind of i supposed to be the producer of our show. Not my nemesis. I'm the producer of your show. I'm not the guy that just agrees with. You want funchess six. I will say this. Every show needs a foil. Yeah gets through. You're you're the he'll. Can we start doing something john where we start making him say things in the mom like yesterday to foia right yeah we would have have her say we would give michelle toy loves animals and she used to come on our show once a week to when she first got the sideline job back then it was i think think monday night football and then she moved to sunday night football yes and we we would give her a word that we told her if she puts it if you get the word in mason and i will each get fifty bucks to the humane society. We're totally weird random words. She got more in than we thought she would like. We would like we would always try and tie it to the region yeah i would say. Where are you tonight. She'd say i'm in minnesota and say okay work in the word nordic nordic right and she would do it yeah and or the diane. I'm work in the word corn bread right a we'd say you are in boston. Okay working tea party right and she'd go okay. I can work with that would give word sometimes. She just disgusted eurochecks she say should i got no shot by the roy on the mom. I can say pretty much anything not. That's how we're going to make the words extremely difficult okay okay. It's like so next week. The game is in new orleans. No it's here. It's not against the saints right. I'm gonna come up with a phrase that is going to be tough for you to work all right and it may involve a waffle house all right excellent coming up next fasttrack mason and ireland e._s._p._n. L._a.

Mason and Ireland [HR 2]

"It's time for fasttrack one piece of news that came down at the top of the show Walker Bueller will start game one for the dodgers in the LDS US which starts tomorrow at Dodgers Stadium. It'll be bueller versus Patrick Corbin and we'll circle back around the dodgers after fasttrack. Let's see one side side of the coin John. The rams the other side of the coin the other one the seahawks. I'M GONNA pick the Rams uh-huh. I just they look so bad on Sunday. I think that they're going to bounce back. We're going with the rams sounds. Bat Fouls Chat Right Mace in California classrooms. Kids can no longer be suspended from school when they talk too much plan their phones or even for a talking back to the teacher a new law signed by Governor Gavin newsom this month prohibits suspensions for willful defiance in grades grades four and five and bans it in grade six to eight for five years so if you if you say to a kid kid says hey hey. Steve Steve Shut up and do your homework and you say no. I'll do what I want to yard. My boss teach you can send the the principal's office. You can put them in the corner. You cannot suspend ler you cannot suspend them action such as chewing gum playing on your phone tapping happing feet napping mouthing off or being out of uniform may still bring consequences but you cannot suspend them. The idea is to keep the kid in school and not let them get days off when they screw up good hear bad idea to take suspensions off the table as a punishment in grade school so suspension is out you can suspend them but detention and sure you can you give him the breakfast club for two years him come to school and they're in a row who is that guy's name and the breakfast club that Nelson none of it. Who was the teacher that Mr the I can't remember that dude. He was also in trading places. That guy's a great actor but you can do that. What do you think suspensions off the table. I'm okay with that. As long as detention is allowed in other words make the kid comes to school Bergman. What do you think if some girl is some punk kid is is given Riley a hard time. They can throw them out of the class. He's he's giving your daughter hard time but they can't suspend him yeah. I don't think suspension should happen so I'm with. I'm with this what I am. What's wrong with you. Some kids just don't want to be there. What avantis birth is in your kid's class him be there. That's all they want. They have no choice but to be there. This really is breakfast. Nelson kept trying to get thrown out class yeah and they and they kept him around a person with another tension. Actually I liked just to make the kids come to school. You'll get a lot. I think I only had to do detention twice my whole. I I think one time principal vernon by the way Vernon and I got detention once I got once for being late to class and once I got I was talking too much and I got once for winging an eraser at somebody during a racer no during somebody in study hall once a weekday him for miss got. It would have been a better story if you hit. I know I know a little bit fouls. Check I the Korean tour has suspect Korean golf tour suspended current money leader Bio Kim for three years after made an obscene gesture to fans during the final round of tournament this past weekend holding one-shot lead on the sixteen toll of the DGB financial group Volvo Vic Day Goo Ga von Kirk for that tournament Aria Open in Gumi South Korea. Yeah Kim reacted angrily after cellphone ring off during his down swing. His drive ended up going about one hundred yards after the poor shot. Kim turned to the crowd flipped off fans fans and slammed his driver into the ground. He won the tournament but unfortunately the incident was captured on live TV in Korea. Is this suspension too extreme suspended for four three years. What penalty do you think in American Golfer would have gotten for the same infraction and should golf tournaments and force ruled that spectators can't bring their cell phones owns onto the course first of all the the the punishment so doesn't fit the crime here. If this happened in an American tournament they'd slap the guy in the risk with a five thousands dollar fine. This is the leading money winner on the South Korean tour and he won this tournament one. You're talking about after it was over a group Vol Victims Google young yet after it was over. He apologized profusely at one point getting on his knees at the press conference to apologize. This is such a ridiculous overreaction. If John Daly flipped off somebody in the crowd he'd get an endorsement deal out of it. I mean it'd be a small fine Nanno. We know you shouldn't make people have to put their phones away. Hey Golfers I golf. I go whenever I get a chance baseball players. Can you imagine telling baseball players telling the crowd to shut up and be quiet yet. I mean it's absurd. You can't put up with one click of a phone. He'll be like that Phoenix tournament commit. That's really one hundred percent of grain kinds. Annoy couldn't agree with you more and three years for this guy if if think about if you get suspended three years every time commute the F. Word Your career would be over would be done no. It's not an appropriate punishment and these people are snooty in South Korea and this guy you know what I think this guy should do. I think she'd come over here and we'll give exemptions to play an artur. Do you think it's something because I think it's really over the top. It's ridiculously over. Is it something something cultural yeah one hundred percent yeah they. They have better manners than we do. Absolutely I mean 'cause. I saw the guy on his knees. Begging for goodness and I'm like like if somebody did there you would not see them begging forgetting and in some of those cultures in a you know overseas particularly. It's very disrespectful to do anything embarrassing your elders right that that that's what and so maybe the fact that that this guy did it in front of old people and sponsors and TV yeah. I mean God but no three years that's crazy. Mace one year would have been too much yeah. I the if I if I'm the commissioner a fine and if if you want to send an example out of since he's leading money winner on tour tournament take the rest of the month off yeah okay now. That's that seems right to three tournaments three years crazy yes his chest a ridiculous overreaction. You're listening to Caspian Los Angeles on Monday afternoon. Mark Cuban tweeted this quote. Oh gotta say of all Media Subscriptions and I have a lot. The athletic is the most disappointing it's like they only hire fire the people they can afford rather than the best they can get when quote later. Cuban tweeted four thumbs up emojis to agree with this tweet from Kevin durant quote truth in the matter reporters have to ask better questions about the game. They have to get educated. They're educated on how to get clicks end quote. I subscribed the athletic and I like it a lot. I like the athletes but do Cuban and have a point here does the quality of reporting overall need to get better people just looking for clicks throw durant's comments out because he's overly sensitive and I think he views the world that way. It's interesting from Cuban because he's had some robberies with different writers in the past and you remember he was the when he he he pulled credentials. I know that he wouldn't let Brian or Andy. One of the KAMINSKYS get credentialled for a game because they were quote unquote just a web writer. You're right but that was back before the Internet was really big so I don't understand I. I'll tell you wonder if he has some grudge with the guy that's writing writing about the mavericks on the athletic. I I will say this. I like mark. Cuban have way too many subscriptions. I pay for Wall Street Journal. The New York Times Washington Post pay for the athletic. I pay for consumer reports. I probably have twenty five different subscriptions. If you made me prioritize them in other words Sumer reports yeah do like when you buy stuff you can get really make any time you have to buy anything you just go. You say I need to buy a blender. We'll give you the toddler lender like yelp. Hope you have to trust you help. Anybody can go on reviews on Yelp but here's the thing if you made me cut my my subscriptions yeah. The athletic might be the last one I would. I read it all the time. I told Tim Carney whose the editor in chief of that. He's a former Laker beat writer. He's up in San Francisco. I told him that it might be my favorite sports website. I read it nonstop and then like the the people they have writing in. La are great like bill orem covers the Lakers yeah yes brian right for the athletic you know Vinnie Bonnie your your does affect coverage the rams. I really like him. I think they're comparable the time now. I've actually cut back my media subscriptions like I finally I used the La Times so little cut the La Times okay so here's a funny story. I I will never cut the times. I've read it. Ever since I moved back to California after Termites sportscasting out is there's just not much to it okay so but here's a funny thing so I was still getting the paper delivered right and I realize I've just taken it and throwing it in the trash because I was reading it it all in line so I called him. I said I WANNA cancel my delivery but I'll keep my subscription and they said well how about just Sunday it. Just deliver the paper on Sunday and I said No. I don't want to pay for it. Just cancel the actual print paper and they said well what if I could give it to you for ten cents cents a week. I said for how long for three months so they told me for ten cents a week for three months but then realized I still wasn't reading the actual they just so. I have all the ads so I call but I wasn't even reading the ADS. I was just taking the paper and throwing it in the garbage so so I finally called and I said guys. This is a waste of paper. Yes it is and and I I don't want to contribute to that so please cancel my subscription and they said okay they still deliver it real even though I no longer pay for they WANNA brag about the circulation but I'm not paying the AD paying for my online subscription but that's it and like in the middle of the week. I'll get it just just weird weird but I I did cut it. I did cut it Oh it's to me fast track. Aright John Game Day operations officials at the University of North Carolina Crack Jokes at the expense of Clemson fans during their matchup pass Saturday during North Carolina played well to during being a break in the action the video board displayed individuals in the stands Clemson fancy with overlaid captions insinuating that they were bandwagon fans so like they showed a woman wearing clemson t t shirt and said thinks that Clemson is in Georgia another one they showed a guy in a Clemson Clemson Hoodie and it's the caption was thinks the fridge is just a kitchen appliance so they were insinuating that all these clemson fans were all new to the party already some Clemson fans have took it in stride others have denounced it as demeaning sending complaints to the UNC Athletic Department. was this funny or on the on the part of the school or people being way too sensitive can can my feelings are her kit.

We'll never ever write anything they you could even be perceived as as fun or goofy. I'd love it if the Lakers and the clippers has gotten a twitter war with their twitter accounts but it'll never happen why because I think everybody stays in the fairway.

It was founded in part with celebrity funding for Miley Cyrus Chris Chris Rock Rock and Mark Ronson for the first time in the country. Customers will legally be able to order pot as if it were a bottle of wine the pot can be smoked in pre we roll joints or vape even as the industry is grappling with a spike in lung damage and deaths linked to vaping so a couple of questions. Is this a positive is it of development. The Pot Lounge is it healthy for the country to pot lounges the way they have hash bars in Amsterdam and should they ever be the allowed to sell both cannabis and alcohol at a lounge right. Now you can only sell cannabis. You cannot sell booze there okay so I have no issues. I think marijuana should be legal. I'm not a pothead you you are the recreational doubt some some but and yet you'll going there this weekend long and strangely. It is one minute away from four twenty. Hey and when you happen to bring this up. I'm sure that wasn't a coincidence coincidence so I have no problem with it. I'm kind of libertarian and things like this. I have as long as you don't getting a car or you. Don't hurt somebody else. If you want to go to a bar and consume cannabis and I have I'm not going in there. Are you okay with cannabis and alcohol being served at the same place. I am except that I'm not okay if those people get in vehicles and of course of course so I will be grudgingly say. Let's try it now. What do you think there's a rule in my family. you can either drink or smoke but you can't can't do both. I think it is a very good rule for life. I am okay. You know it's weird. I drink but don't smoke you smoke but don't really don't really drink no. We're actually following that rule without it being in place correct. You're allowed one vice but not done both. Have you ever done both before I've never ever done both. It is not a fun experience. no. I've had thrown up very many times from the both well wait a minute. What do you think causes you to throw up having too much alcohol and then smoking. It's like liquor before beer. Have no fear beer before liquor never been sicker before making off raising smoke before then or drink and then smoke. It's a good thing to mix anyways but I actually think i. I wonder how many of these are going to be around. I wonder how many neighborhoods will permit a living presidents in Hollywood yet. I lived in West Hollywood for seven years permission. you might as we'll have a sign over when you enter the city limits as anything goes located by the way. I don't know that's why I asked you. I don't know the address my guess is. It's probably on Santa. Monica Boulevard down in in the kind of strip malls are yeah. I could be a sunset Sahil Brea. It's deeper into West Hollywood okay yeah. I'm definitely check it out. I think it'd be interesting. I'll chat all right. I was Miley Cyrus Sir. Yeah I was going. She is unabashedly.

Now I of course season handyman. Actually the opposite is true. I had no clue how to put the sink back together. So I did what Oh you should do. I called power pro plumbing heating and air powerful professional affordable. It's who they are. It's in their name power pros local.

ESPN LA I don't forget the Steve Mason Roast is coming up a week from tomorrow October Tokyo October Eleven Commerce Casino Greg Bergman says five hundred thousand people will be showing up for this road one million people you can text the word roast to four zero seven zero five to get your invitation. It's a commerce casino October. Eleven next Friday and let's see O'Shea Jackson Junior Mojo the cabinets brothers our friend. Dave singer a whole bunch more roasting me. Oh by the way birthday shoutout to someone Mason. I are close within Ed Greg. I'm curious if you know who this is. Do you know who Daniel Barrett is. I absolutely know who that is. You do not know Oh who Daniel Daniel Barrett turns one year old today. He is the son Oh yes yes yes berridge rich and Ramona Shelburne as we call them around here. A little baby may seem ace Daniel Turns one day happy birthday. Daniel Fleece happy birthday to Ramona Mona for that to Ramon Job Ramona on Ron Ramona's post on on twitter fleas said happy birthday nicely nicely yes fleet by the way if you're a chili peppers fan flee and Bill Simmons do a long podcast this week talking about the Lakers and his love of the Lakers and cool and and so if you're if you're looking for good podcast check that out flea by the way has been doing some real acting. I talked to him last year at a game he was operate a really good role in a in a movie where he played a bad ass last year but I mean like totally legit straight up really good actor actor of all the famous Laker fans. I think flea is the one who is consistently. They're the most Denzel goes to a lot of games. Jack doesn't come Jack. Nicholson doesn't come as much as he used to. It's either full flea and Anthony Keita's who are both in the Red Hot Chili Chilli peppers. Come to a lot of games but no one goes. No celebrity goes to more Laker games than flay movie. I was trying to think of is called boy erased raced and he was really really good point breaks. He was excellent in point. Wait a minute the remake three now he's in the original also really good and baby driver driver a really good movie love them all right so the dodgers made the announcement that Walker Bueller is going to start game one here is A. Rod on that decision to v the dodgers. That's rich people's problems right DOC Roberts to have Clayton Kershaw or Walker. I love the move with Walker Bueller. He's got terrific stuff. He's a number one. He's electric has high fastball breaking ball but even though he's young he carries himself like a veteran. He has an edge and a confidence. I Love Robert and the dodgers love that move so what that means is and Kevin Garnett wrote a piece for dodgers dot com today he speculated and you know his speculation is really good. that Walker Bueller in game one that kershaw would go game two ru through would go game three and Richhill Dave Roberts confirmed today is GonNa Start Game. Four that means that Walker Bueller could come out of the depend in game four or game five he could also start game. Five kershaw could come out of the pen for game four or could start dark game now. Both bueller and Kercheval could be available for game five and we expect Patrick Corbin will be the starter from the nationals tomorrow night. Patrick Corbin is left handed so let's see if we can figure out the dodger lineup that means. Aj pollock will most likely be in Centerfield Greg. Let me and left and then who plays centre bellinger's center Taylor and right okay does Muncie city play yeah. He's the first race ace now. Lux Alexis left handed ended this where Canadian k maybe or you can put Muncie at second base and start freeze free at first base right. That's another possibility seger at short. JT At third and and so the one in awesome mix who is who was the the pictures. I think there are two of them that we figured out Jed Jerko hits really well. He Hits Strasbourg well. He Hits Sherzer well. So what's interesting about that is he. We didn't expect he had a chance in hell of being on the postseason so you may not this is random speculation. I was just looking at numbers and what's interesting about that is Jerko a right handed batter and both of those pictures. I you just described a right handed. pitchers and the dodgers love to play percentage so mad bady has been excellent as a pinch hitter and beatty is left hand yeah so it's it's either. Jerko or baby's going to get that last. Probably the twenty fifth spot on the on the twenty. I five man roster but we'll get all these answers. Is it possible we won't know the dodgers lineup until tomorrow the Dodgers Roster Gaffe lineup in a pan roster. Yes we won't know the lineup obviously until we know the roster so I mean they're not gonNA leak it tonight. I mean you know in fact. SBN Tonight Dave Roberts said there's no specific there's no particular advantage to leaking in early or to putting it out early and I haven't seen the nationals put out their plan roster either no no. They're not GonNa do it because it's all gamesmanship. Everybody is going to wait until tomorrow. and again that Game Alana is starting a lot of Rizzo who who is does such a great job as the dodgers regular sideline reporter says Will Smith is catching bueller freeze pollock Taylor Taylor and Turner will also be in the lineup so greg that was your second suggestion that they'll replay freeze and they'll make muncie be the second baseman then uh right put Kiki there because Kiki's Kiki's. I don't think they're going to take months. They did that last year in the world series and it was a huge mistake taking muncie and cody bellinger not playing in games one and two mays. Here's something you were interested in that. Alana got put out Sunday's game between the dodgers and the nationals is set for seven forty five eastern four forty five Pacific so it's going to go head to head with Sunday night football and with the L. AFC game right. I don't know the time of the Elliott I was going to go to that L. AFC game to don't don't do do that anymore. Yeah I mean obviously I feel bad for L. AFC. They're at they're just in the middle of a bad time. No Sunday is one. PM Cam for L. AFC so you could you could hear radically if you're a real if you're real superfan you could do both yeah. I'd like to soccer. Games are tight two hours L. AFC's last game regular season game and villa has a chance to break the thing about it. Let's go to that game. It would end between three and three thirty. You just get up to dodger your stadium in that game starts at four forty five. No no they're on the road for that day was right there and watch your exactly all right coming up next we'll touch on what's going on with the Rams Mason Ireland. ESPN la..

I don't hate you bet against them. All the time. What are you talking about. This money is because you bet against Jason. I am ran not lie hater. You hate Michael Thompson. You hate the rams. I hate everything it's ridiculous. I love Michael. Why do you put restrictions on. 'em Tom to show last week Michael Thompson last week the ban is lifted poorly lifted it because you you get a lean medical money and you start making up. These BS rules like Michael thompsons limited to segments dumbest segments. That's the dumbest rule ever center for two seconds but that's it. It's over. I'm taking it off no band tile band so Bob Mason no ban Dan good yeah well. It's it's what you're just because you see it was rank was your wing man. All about Michael Thompson is and he's going to be here a lot this year because he's we're on the air and we're rolling right into pregant well that and I had a long talk with Julie at the at the Klay Thompson Charity Event and Julie Really Want Him the hell out of the house. Oh is that right yes. She's had it with him she. She loves him but she says come on okay. I mean I'm not used to having them around for twelve hours a day. Get them back in the studio Orland. What good are you every week. During Rams pre-game I do feel the mom of Mason which has come to be known as the mom and these guys give me a word that is difficult to work into the general flow of something like this okay so we we had a text exchanged earlier today so I'm Greg said Super Calaf racialistic. Xp Aldo Shas which is too easy way too easy yeah. That's it yeah I mean. He didn't know what was the second word second word. All I did was look a tip most difficult words to say in the English language yeah but I can't even say that word it is. Oto Rhino Laron geologist yeah no chance chance then what I gave Mason was the word in the says little iron into it says Quy Pavilion yes so Ceska we pavilion is word that is used to describe someone who is long winded or gay using like people say Howard Cosell was very sensibly alliens Cesspool Fidelia. So did you get any some one. I got one all right. Let's hear it breath what's rattling around in the mind of Mace by New Mace People Sam Dreamer the only in Steve Mason hey this is the mason for Mason an Ireland everyday from three to six thirty on ESPN LA where we are tearing up afternoon afternoon drive time for the mind of Mason or the mom as we call it for short the rams are coming off a disastrous fifty five forty loss to Tampa at the coliseum on Sunday Sunday too early interceptions jared Goff helped put the Ranson at twenty one nothing whole the offensive line a mess. The defense got shredded all that being said in the final L. Two minutes. They were still a touchdown in two point conversion away from forcing overtime before that strip sack and scoop and score at the end of the game now. It's a short week listening trying to coach Sean mcvay that may be better than waiting until Sunday. The Rams had no time to stew over the loss. It was immediately onto game planning for tonight. I talked a lot about jared Goff's terrible doubleday and despite a career high five hundred yards passing a lot of that was because of the early turnovers so Goff's performance really was a huge factor in the loss but Tampa damper which engulfs face all day long they recorded only two sacks but they had nine quarterback hits and thirty pressures that all falls to the offensive line which had its roughest fisk game of the season pro football focus rated the rams is the worst offensive line in the League in game for the new guys Brian Allen Joe no food of struggled Austin Blyth Rob. Haven Stein haven't been good either. The good news is that the Legion of boom has gone and Seattle has recorded only ten sacks so far this year so maybe this is the night where the old line can get back on track much has been made about the rams not running the football Sunday but a lot of that was a function of playing from behind all day Seattle number six against the run so it may be tough to get todd. Gurley gone again guaranteed that Seattle follows that same game plan that the rams offense has been seeing take away the edges takeoff. Take away the outside run takeaway play action turn jared goff into a drop back passer it. That's the way the game plays out can jared. Goff make better decisions avoid interceptions and protect the football. That could be the key to the game on the defensive side. Wade Phillips and his group just need to flush the Tampa game coming into it the defenseless third the NFL in yardage against so the pieces are there for great performance tonight. Seattle's offense has been solid there middle of the pack running the football led by Chris Carson Russell Wilson us off to a great start. You got to account for his favorite receiver. Tyler Lockett and a secondary option has emerged in will d'isly. I've watched the ransom against the seahawks enough to know that Russell Wilson is a little magician. You don't WanNa see Wilson in the final two minutes of game with one score lead. He has money in situations. I like that I say this is a bounceback week for jared. Goff better protection from the offensive line and a bounceback week for the defense to the rams are two point underdogs on the road. I say they win it. Final score ramps twenty four Seattle Seventeen. Don't forget the incomparable estimable Mason and Ireland show transcending transcending afternoon drive tomorrow at three and my being to Ceska Padilla Okay I've. I wrote several notes on this mom all right so first of all the music was better I did. The music sounds a little more Iraq going for you. Get points. You're incredibly credibly honest. Not only did you tell the truth about the offensive line you called them out by name which I was very impressed with so you get points for both of that it was too long. I think that you probably just kept started going and lost track of time like you do. When you live read yes so you lose a five points because it was too long and you referred to yourself. I hate when people from Ohio state say the Ohio State University and if you're okay with that so when you further yourself as the Mason I subtracted five points but but when you go third person it is no good so greg. I give him a solid ninety ninety five points for the Mason five points because it was too long and I don't think he put the end on sesame pedaling while I did. I think it's I thought he did my Padillia. Can you play just the in front of you have to go all the way to go. Yeah we'll get. We'll figure it out but at the same time I have even lower score because of well because you know it's because you spend so much time talking about last week. You barely talked about this week at all the there you didn't get into much about what's what would you give them. I went down to an eighty five all right so you get an average of eighty seven point five Dr Tomorrow at at the end up Dale Young No. There's no in there again tomorrow at three and my two CESKA petroleum their I drive tomorrow at three. Am I being too quick Fidel. Oh I don't hear the end I there. There is no points points card game next E._S._P._N.
