Fresh update on "matthew" discussed on Bloomberg Radio
"Amy. Thank you, John. This race is being very closely watched with incumbent democratic senator Raphael Warnock facing Republican Herschel Walker. Joining me now to talk about all of this Bloomberg Washington correspondent Joe Matthew host of sound on with Joe Matthew, he'll be in Georgia covering this key race. Joe Warnock has been trying to pitch a pretty big democratic tent down there. This race really is not about party. But it is about who has the character and the competence to represent these students and to represent all the people of Georgia. And meanwhile, Herschel Walker has a different style. We need to tell him he's fired. Get out of that office. And then while we don't know what we need to do is tell him, don't let that door hit you in the right side as you leave the people offense. And let's start by talking about what the polls are showing Joe, let's look at the two candidates could not be more different. And some of the latest polls that we've seen this past week show that there's the margin is getting smaller. Yeah, there hasn't really been a lot of research. It's interesting. You ask about polls. We don't have a lot to pick from here. There was one from AARP over a week ago. Really? That found that found Raphael Warnock actually ahead by four or 5 points, but that was within the margin. And when you look deeper inside, he's Warnock is leading by double digits among young voters, 18 to 49. He's got a 24 percentage point lead over Herschel Walker. That is significant. The more the older voters are, the more they tend to lean towards Herschel Walker. Independence are also breaking by just about inside the margin again, four or 5 points breaking for senator Warnock once again. We got another one just a couple of days ago. These aren't often the normal polling agencies we hear from. This is Frederick polls compete digital and am political they have both candidates deadlocked and actual toss up at 50% each. Now let's look at some of these numbers. And let's try to break it down a little bit. And let me give you a bit of a story here, just some anecdotal. George's Republican lieutenant governor Jeff Duncan told CNN that he cast his ballot. He voted early. He didn't vote for walker. He didn't vote for Warnock. I finally so hard to believe. Called this the most disappointing ballot. Oh, you don't buy it. So you got out of bed that morning waited in line for an hour without knowing who you're voting for as the lieutenant governor. He had to write in. Brian Kemp, his boss, is all in for Herschel Walker. He's dedicated his entire ground game. He's stumping for him sharing a stage with him and raising money for him. Okay, having not done that in the midterm election cycle. He decided to do this for the runoff just to thumb his nose a bit at Donald Trump is what is how we see that, but his lieutenant governor has no idea who to vote for. Maybe you should wait a minute to go vote. Will he, my point, my question about this pardon me is the divisiveness that you've seen now in the division even within the GOP itself. Yeah, absolutely. Well, I'm not sure how much division there is at this point. Following the midterms, Republicans have decided they need this. There's a reason it's not just because it's fun to have one extra seat. If Rafael Warnock keeps his job, they'll be able to have a majority on committees. If Republicans get this seat, Herschel Walker wins, they keep Democrats from doing that. So there is actually a matter of business at hand here. It's not just having that extra layer of protection. It'll dictate the way these committees are made up. Republicans are all in on that, whether it's Lindsey Graham, Tom cotton, Rick Scott. They've all gone down there. Donald Trump, of course, picked this candidate. Now Brian Kemp is working overtime to get him elected. Things have gelled pretty well for Herschel Walker inside the Republican Party. One of the things I like to watch was especially when it comes to a runoff is how the early voting is turning out. Is that going to make a difference here, the turnout for early voting? That's the big question we're walking into next week with because if they have set a record for early voting here, we understand based on history that that tends to benefit the Democrat. So Rafael Warnock is feeling pretty good about those numbers. Only a 181,000 people voted early last weekend and we've seen these numbers tick up over the course of the week since. Let's talk about the money. There's been a lot of money poured into this race. Record breaking numbers. Does that make a difference? The more the more you spend, the more likely you are to win. It doesn't seem to be, right? You've got these guys within a percentage point, despite all the scandals, the abortion stories, the endless talk of vampires and werewolves, it's been a crazy campaign. And they are essentially tied. So it's hard to make the case for money, although I will say this if you back up a little bit to the midterm cycle before this turned into a runoff. Mitch McConnell was the one spending money on Herschel Walker, not Donald Trump, and if he hadn't done that, it might not have gone as well as it did for Herschel to begin with. He might not have actually gotten into the runoff. So money does have its time. The question is, how much Brian Kemp's money might make a difference now? Okay, so what are you watching for as you

A Meditation on Matthew 9:27-31 for Friday of the 1st Week of Advent
"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to Matthew, chapter 9 versus 27 through 31. As Jesus went on his way, two blind men followed him shouting. Take pity on a son of David. And when Jesus reached the house, the blind men came up with him, and he said to them, do you believe I can do this? They said, sir? We do. Then he touched their eyes, saying your faith deserves it, so let this be done for you. And their sight returned. Then Jesus sternly warned them, take care that no one learns about this. But when they had gone, they talked about him all over the countryside. What word made this passage come alive for you? What did you sense the lord saying to you?
A Prayer to Prepare Him Room
"My intention is not to villainous today's culture, which places a high value on comfort and security. However, culture today and of old, often prioritizes comfort of her holiness. Just like the influx of visitors overcrowded the accommodations in Bethlehem. We often overcrowd our hearts, moving Jesus to the fringes instead of the center. I propose that we prepare our hearts and minds this holiday season by reading the biblical accounts of Christ's birth. Matthew one through two and Luke one through two. Make these true stories a part of your family's existing traditions. Read them to your children and visiting family, talk about the light of the world as much as you talk about the beauty of the tree with its twinkling lights. Worship our savior king as you hum along to your favorite Christmas album. We're often too easily swept away in all the magical traditions, causing us to forget the true gift of the Christmas season. As we prepare our homes and families for Christmas, joy also prepare room in our hearts and minds, string the lights up, sit the cocoa and as you prepare room in your home, also prepare Christ room in your heart and mind this Christmas. Let's remember how the king of the world, the God of the universe, the word of God became a gentle and lowly baby so that we would have a way to be reconciled to God for eternity. Unlike the townspeople of tiny Bethlehem, let God's people everywhere prepare him room. Let's pray. Dear lord, thank you that even in an openly hostile, anti Christian world, we still have the opportunity to celebrate the birth of Christ. God, I know there is nothing inherently wrong with the Christmas traditions. But help us to keep the proper perspective and priority this holiday season. Forgive us when we crowd up space for you by being overly distracted with traditions. Help us weave in the biblical accounts of your birth to prepare room for you in our hearts as often as we make room for the Christmas decorations this year. Help us get creative and make it a point to use this time of year to share the good news of the birth of our savior. We love you in Jesus name. Amen.
A Meditation on Matthew 7:24-27 for Thursday of the 1st Week of Advent
"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to Matthew, chapter 7 versus 24 through 27. Jesus said to his disciples, it is not those who say to me, lord, lord, who will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. But the person who does the will of my father in heaven. Therefore, every one who listens to these words of mine and acts on them, will be like a sensible man who built his house on rock, rain came down, floods rose, Gale's blue and hurled themselves against that house, and it did not fall. It was founded on rock. But everyone who listens to these words of mind and does not act on them, will be like a stupid man who built his house on sand. Rain came down, floods rose, Gale's blue, and struck that house, and it fell, and what a fall it had. What word made this passage come alive for you. What did you sense the lord saying to you?
A Mediation on Matthew 8:5-11 for Monday of the 1st Week of Advent
"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to Matthew, chapter 8 versus 5 through 11. When Jesus went into capernaum, a centurion came up and pleaded with him. Sir, he said, my servant is lying at home paralyzed and in great pain. I will come myself in cure him, said Jesus. A centurion replied. Sir, I am not worthy to have you under my roof. Just give the word in my servant will be cured. For I am under authority myself and have soldiers under me, and I say to one man, go, and he goes to another, come here, and he comes. To my servant, do this, and he does it. When Jesus heard this he was astonished and said to those following him, I tell you solemnly, nowhere in Israel have I found faith like this, and I tell you that many will come from east and west to take their places with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob at the feast in the Kingdom of Heaven. What word made this passage come alive for you? What did you sense the lord saying to you?

Matthew Perry Is Still Using
"So I'm watching the show the view to see how Matthew Perry sounded and appeared to me because he was on the view the other day and this would be the third time I saw him since the Diane Sawyer interview. And some of you people on the free show don't know that I said, I think he's still using. I don't think this is a good ending. I can feel he's not being honest with us. I said that. About a week ago, maybe four days ago. And I said, I don't care what anybody else thinks. This is what I think about being around addicts, my whole life. I know they talk. I know their answers. I know the way they think. I don't believe him. He's trying hard, but I don't think he's straight. Sorry. And I'm going to hold hold firm on that. So today, I get an email from one of my patrons, and it goes AJ based on your recommendation. My wife and I watched the Diane Sawyer interview with Matthew Perry. My wife is a 30 year substance abuse nurse with a master's degree, she lost a child to addiction. But she's worked in several hospitals and built several hospitals in multiple states. So this is not just somebody who dabbled. It is what this woman knows. I say all this to inform you of her breath of experience and knowledge. As we watch the show, no less than every 5 minutes she told me to pause the TV so that she can let me know that all of Matt's mannerisms, speech patterns, words, stumbles, and chubby fingers. Hands, yes, they are 100% indicative of a non sober person. He said, we have no doubt that Matt is currently using and my personal prediction is that he will over those before New Year's Day 2023. Well, let's not. I hope not. And he closed by saying you did excellent reporting back when he was in the hospital. Better than Diane Sawyer did on that interview. That's good. Yeah, it's the way I feel. I'm happy to have somebody with so much knowledge in this field back me up, but those of you who have been with me for 5 years on the Patreon show know that I stick my neck out, I go out on limbs and I'm often right.
Some Perspective on the 'Friends' Cast's Wealth
"The Friends reunion has been delayed because of the coronavirus. It's not going to be available until late May. So let me take you on a quick class on perspective, okay? Aniston Cox kudrow Leblanc Perry and schwimmer are each teach going to receive between two and a half 1 million 3 $1 million to appear in this special. All they got to do is sit on their ass and answer questions. And they could receive up to 4 million for this brief reunion. That's four times what Jennifer Aniston already receives for each episode of her Apple streaming drama the morning show. She's got one of the highest salaries in the industry. So, you make a million a week on one show. You sit down on the other show to tell some fucking stories. Maybe you wear a white top so you nipples can pop out like they always used to. They better for that kind of fucking money. You better show some nip Aniston. All 6 of these cock suckers. All 6 of them are gonna be, you have no idea the kind of money they're making is astronomical. All 6 of these people receive 2% of the syndication income. That's about $20 million per person. Per year. In other words, every year since Friends has been off the air, all of them have made $20 million apiece. Now Matt LeBlanc has worked on two different sitcoms, which have been funny and great and he makes a lot of money. Shrimp has been a successful director. Matthew Perry's out some troubles, but he's had some TV shows that have fared pretty well. Kudrow does very well in movies and TV, Courtney Cox, of course, had cougar town, Aniston, high and away, far and away the biggest of all of them with what she's commanding now. The shell brings in one billion dollars a year for Warner Brothers.

"Do we need to be on retreat to access the depths of what you've been talking about in this conversation? Retreat is helpful, but I don't think it's strictly necessary. I feel like everything I'm saying is on offer in just the rhythms of our practice, but I retreat is for most people is indispensable in the development of some of the understandings and I don't think it's strictly absolutely necessary, but for most people, just the sense of what mindfulness is, the radical potentials of awareness don't usually dawn on people until they have some days of seclusion. And certainly in my own experiences, it was easy to think that I knew what mindfulness was, because I had been practicing for a couple of years, I think, before I sat a first retreat. But I don't feel like I really started to appreciate the multi dimensional depth of even what mindfulness is until I started to sit and retreat with some seclusion with these artificial set of conditions that help us relinquish some of the vigilance. I agree with that. I think you can get enormous benefits from doing mindfulness on a day to day or daily ish basis, but you can get even more if you go on retreat after the break Matthew talks about finding respite from lives that he says are lived and these are his words, smashed between the present and the future, and he explains the importance of distinguishing between true alarms and false alarms. Keep it here. Let's

"All right, we are back with Matthew McConaughey. Let's listen to one of the spots. And then we will have even more questions from Matthew. Here we go. Two parts long, branch. One part. Yeah. There's quite a lot to choose from here. What would you say was the most fun to shoot, which vignette as closest to your heart if there is one? I mean, the series of the short 15s and 8 where I am pushing the car going yeah, coming. Thank you. Yeah. Whatever non verbals and things like that makes no sense, but gosh, I want to be there. And I hope he's bringing me that drink. Those are really fun because that's just me playing around. We had a whole field. We had a cart and the idea of me having this classical cart with glasses and ice and a bottle of long branch on it, pushing it through a field without a pathway to wherever was just like okay. I don't know where that bar is, but I want to go. That was fun because we got like 5 spots. We got 5 assets out of like a three minute taker. I just improv and rift. So I like that segment a lot. Those assets a lot. I got to say as a whole as one that we planned on doing though. Was what if long branch was a horse? And I fancy myself an armchair auctioneer and a sort of, I like to imitate the people who call horse races coming around and going around the old banana. On the inside, but don't tell out of it. I love doing that. And so on the creative call, I think I said, what if longridge was a horse? And now and I'll do the, you know? Like, I'm calling the race. And then settle in the camera finds me and you see that I'm talking to myself. And then I go, yeah, I'd bet on it. What if there's.
"matthew" Discussed on 10% Happier with Dan Harris
"A Buddhist lens, honesty in itself is held as an incredibly high value. There are many qualities that are very esteemed in Buddhism and many kind of faux pas of ethical conduct that a person might make. And it said in Buddhist lore, that over the Buddha's many lifetimes before becoming a Buddha, he actually made all of the ethical faux pas that a person can make, except one. Which is saying that which is not true. And so there's a real high esteem for the importance for our well-being and that of others of not creating more delusion in the world by not speaking truthfully. And so if we're in a relationship at work or anywhere where we don't feel like we can be real, it may have tremendous consequences for our well-being and for the well-being of others. And so it's really important to look at, hey, should I be staying at a workplace where I don't feel like I can be honest and forthright. And so what I would wish for anybody who is thinking about, you know, what often people sometimes refer to as managing up in some ways in more direct ways, sometimes we do it in softer ways. But specifically in giving feedback to somebody who's in a place of relative power over us in the workplace, is that I would wish for you to build a relationship with this person over time where there's enough trust that you can give honest and direct feedback. And the thing that matters is the thing that we already talked about, which is centering the relationship first. And if there's a trusted mutual commitment to supporting each other as professionals and both people trust that, usually it's safe, even within a hierarchical pitched power dynamic between one professional and another to say what you really think, even if it's somewhat painful to hear. And so my overall encouragement is if you feel like there's people in your work life that you can't be real with, then number one, it's important to try and start to build the foundation so that one day you can. And if you don't think that's possible, you have to decide for yourself. Is it okay for me to stay in this role in this place of work with people that I don't think that I can be truly honest with or do I need to find a group of people that I can work with where I can be real? And just to say that this notion of how to be clear with people in feedback is something that we're going to be talking about and practicing in the work life meditation challenge with Matthew. Another thing we're going to be talking about in the challenge is Buddhist concept called praise and blame. Can you hold forth on that? Well, one of the things that I wanted to talk about in this challenge that we're going to do, we're going to try and develop a little bit of a healthier relationship to work, and to feel a little bit more balanced in the midst of our work life. And one of the things that I really wanted to focus on was a tendency that I noticed in myself and in the people that many of the people that I've worked with, which is a tendency to crave after praise that we haven't even gotten yet. And to fear blame that's similarly, we haven't gotten yet. And these factors of praise and blame are talked about in Buddhism along with a set of 6 other polar experiences like gain and loss, pleasure and pain. And fame and disrepute. It's not a word that people use very often. But, you know, it's like having a reputation tarnished. But so praise and blame are talked about alongside these other pairs of experiences that happen in a social context, often, not all of them, pleasure and pain happens socially and not socially. But their experiences that we can't run away from. If we're alive for long enough and usually it only takes, you know, a month to run through all of these experiences and some subtle way. But you're going to experience pleasure and you're going to experience pain. You're going to experience gain and you're going to experience loss. You're going to experience praise from people and you're going to experience blame. And there are things that the mind can really wrap itself around. And the thinking mind loves to try and use these things as ways to navigate and decide what's important and what's meaningful in our lives. And in fact, there are just things that are going to come and go no matter what. And often not totally dependent on our actions. Sometimes, but not always. So this lens that comes from Buddhism is one that sees these things like weather patterns that come and go. They're all going to be ever present in changing in our life. And with that kind of equanimous or balanced understanding, suggests that maybe we don't need to define what's good or what's bad in our life based on how much praise or blame we're getting. And I noticed this tendency in my own mind not just to love getting praised and hate getting blamed, which is how most of us relate to these two phenomena. But more than that, if I'm working on a project and it feels like it's representative of me as a professional or me as a dama teacher or me as a person in terms of my character, my mind can start getting into.

"On the planet, was not that we were strongest, but that we can communicate and collaborate. I think it's just something deep in our evolutionarily bequeathed wiring that feels relaxed when you share a burden. Yes. Yes. Yeah, I can totally relate to this. And just to say, I can mostly relate to the opposite. I mean, I really grew up in circumstances where I ended up internalizing the conditioning that the most laudable thing that I could do was to totally of my own power take care of all my responsibilities and succeed in a way that was attributable to me and meal home. And getting that message somehow, through the culture growing up, I showed up in my life as a working professional as an adult really trying to achieve everything under my own power and missing the opportunity to build meaningful relationships to ask for help to bounce ideas off of people to really utilize the benefit of being a human who's connected to other people. And it was really painful for me for a long time. And frankly, I'll say that I've seen that conditioning in myself way outside of work as well and it's been one of the things that has been a growth edge for me that I can say that has changed a lot over time is as I've become an adult. I've learned how to have a conversation with a good friend or a therapist or a boss when something's really troubling me. And that's not something that is naturally easy for me. And so one of the things that I just want to nod to is that for anybody who's like me, that really may be very uncomfortable to do. And the first times that you do it while it might be scary, ultimately, it really pays off because as you say, all the mountains get smaller. I think I heard you say something recently. There's a way in which you can think about asking for help as a kind of generosity because when people help you, it actually feels good to them. So you're giving other people an opportunity to feel good. Am I restating your view correctly here? You've got that right and this is pretty counterintuitive. I really had to learn this from my own experience. I don't know that I could have taken it on face value as just pretty words from somebody. But this is one of the most foundational values in the Buddhist tradition. And so in my own journey as a contemplative learning about Buddhist meditation practice, one of the things that I was taught and that I learned is that when the Buddha taught meditation to people, most of the time, the first thing he taught before meditation or even ethics was generosity. And he taught this practice of giving freely of yourself to others. And all of his teachings supposedly are about freeing up the mind from struggle and suffering and creating more well-being. And so the idea there inherently is that the act of giving and also the internal feeling of being altruistic, generous and spirit is one that frees up the mind and feels good to us. And as I practice that, I saw that for myself. And then eventually, as I started to have a really authentic wish for everybody around me to be feeling good to not be struggling to live with a little more ease in their life as I was starting to learn that it was possible for me to live with a little more ease in my life and it felt like that wasn't a finite resource that I needed to hoard for myself and really I thought I want everybody to be doing a little bit better. All of a sudden it was like, oh, if I am wishing well-being for the people around me, then I wish that they have the opportunity to be incredibly generous. And all of a sudden I started to see a behavior of mine in a new light. And this behavior was when people would offer me something, particularly help. I would say, oh, no, no. It's fine. Don't go out of your way. I don't want you to feel put upon. You don't need to do anything extra to help me out, and here's this condition. Again, I'll take care of it on my own. I've got it under control. And all of a sudden I saw that conditioning and totally new light, I saw you're just Matthew, depriving this person of the opportunity to offer something freely to offer some generosity to you to say like, hey, can I help you out? And to be met with, yeah, absolutely. You want to know what? I'd love that. In fact, I'd really appreciate that. You know, if you think back in your life any time that you've authentically wanted to help somebody and they've actually taken that in, graciously, it feels really good to help people. And so I had this shift in thinking that was like, look, may I never obstruct another person's generosity? And in fact, may I give other people opportunities to express generosity? To me and to.

"Your energies or your focus or your time and he's just calling for more obedience in that to to us what you have. Where has he been speaking to you so directly here lately because if you can identify that then look at what your response has been and is it actually that of a sin of omission. Yeah and i think that you could even take data step further in the payroll and ask where like the third servant is fear stopping. You know really true. Yeah i mean how many times has fear stopped. Any of us right. Yeah fierce huge. Actually when especially when you're called to do something that's just so frightening or just out of your wheelhouse or out of your character. Yes yeah yeah. That's a really good it's funny because You know. I had some texts this week as to what do you think is the weeping and gnashing of teeth This is the matthew thing he he uses a mall the time. Yeah and i will direct people if you want to know got questions which is just a great resource dot questions. Scott question dot org. I believe you can type in any question. And they have solid There's very few things that i just. I don't it doesn't resonate so they have solid so anyway but i had that question you know and as i was thinking about you know is this hell or is it the now and i i mean i think to some degree it is that of really just the darkness. If we're going to talk in a spiritual thing of just the darkness overcoming even in the here and now when we're not obedient we become more and more miserable and when and when we are shutting down the spirit of god in our life and the things that he's asking of us there is no fulfillment in there. And that is where. I think you know you think about. The darkness even can infiltrate our lives as far as our outlook and and everything else. And so i think personally that this weeping and gnashing of teeth yes for sure it is a reference to hell but i think that we experienced that darkness in the here and now where We go in because of our lack of obedience. We go into such a place of despair. yeah i definitely think that that's true and that's a terrible place to be. I've been there yeah.

"matthew" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"Like the rams were the fit for us looking at it. In the short term there it was. It was really exciting. Space on the recent past success you know. It had been a bunch of years in the playoffs. A bunch of years with winning records once the trade happened and it was decided that i was going to be there. I wanted to make sure that. I was pulling my weight when the los angeles rams created for matthew stafford this off season. They handed one of the. Nfl's biggest arms to one of its biggest brains head. coach sean. Mcvay and while stafford in detroit was pretty easy to overlook on account of the general awfulness of lions. There is no ignoring the quarterback. Now not in hollywood not win nothing short of a super bowl which will be hosted in. La this postseason would disappoint today. Seth witter sham takes us behind the scenes of how the stafford trade went down. Would it all says about quarterbacks in the modern era in how kabo apparently is the nexus of power in the nfl. Pablo torre. it's wednesday. August twenty fifth. This is espn daily seth. I've summoned you here today. Because you've written this cover story on matthew stafford who i have now learned likes to be called matthew and not mad. A mistake i've been making for years and years now and it got me thinking that i really don't understand anything actually about matthew stafford or is interior monologue. What he's actually like. But you do because you spent all this time with him and his wife and his new coach. Sean mcveigh what did you learn about. Who matthew stafford is prepared to take over this franchise as the new star in. La matthew stafford is in a lot of ways. The most famous lease known quarterback. In the nfl seth wicker shammas covered the nfl for espn for twenty years. And he's kind of been in this relevant franchise his entire career. The only way it could have been worse if he had been drafted by the jets. And i think there's a lot of football fans who have never seen matthew stafford in his twelve years in the nfl. Play a complete game. No not because of injuries. Even though he has had his share but because he plays in a franchise that is never on primetime television except for thanksgiving and at one point. I asked him. What do you want out of the rest of your career. And i found his answer to be very earnest in humbling. I just want to be successful in know those teams. You really remember those teams that have success get to make runs and and you know whether it's playoff runs bruhns all that but I play this game to try and win super bowls and That's that's what i wanna do. I would love to Have the opportunity to play in that game. Many times possibly can from here on out. You know you think about all the quarterbacks who have authored their legends in the twelve years since matthew stafford has been the nfl with these big playoff moments in he has none of them he doesn't have a signature play And i think that he's very aware where he is in his career in. It's one of the reasons why he wanted out of detroit. You ask him at one. Point piece seth you talked to him and mcvay about the sheer number of prime time games. That are gonna be on television for the rams. It reminds me about something that i don't really ever think about either. Which is that timeslot for. Nfl teams not all of these things are created equal and the rams are going to be very much in the spotlight this season. They're not only going to be in the spotlight. But they're going to be under pressure. Because matthew stafford went to the los angeles rams engineered a trade there for one reason and that's to play in a super bowl and sean mcveigh wagered. His coaching career on another quarterback the second time couple years now for the chance to win a super bowl and so they're not only going to be on prime time. They're going to be expected to perform on primetime. Yeah in your piece. Seth you walk down this metaphorical memory lane with matthew stafford. And it's a ballroom in suburban los angeles. He's doing the thing that all famous quarterbacks do at some point where he signs like a million pieces of memorabilia and you realize that this is him walking you through his football life. What was walking down that memory lane like it was really interesting. So i got to this hotel north of los angeles and i walk into this ballroom and there are just rows and rows and rows of memorabilia and i walk up to stafford and as i got to him. He was signing university of georgia. Memorabilia we got to talk about his time in georgia where he started for three years and left georgia known as a winner. Someone who had performed well in bowl games. And then he goes. I overall to the lions they were the first winless team in the modern. Nfl history they were owen. Sixteen team right. you know. He got to detroit win. The city was at its lowest in two thousand nine during the great recession. And i think that he took a lot of pride in his dream of delivering that franchise a super bowl. He showed some promises. a rookie. had a great one of the most memorable games ever on. Nfl films where he blew out shoulder. And through his fifth and game winning touchdown pass as time expired. Wanna be somewhere to go down on. The field is not getting up early on the ground. And hearing the time. I'll call for some reason in my head that clicked it. I had a chance to come back in the game. I you know the kind of moment that showed promise that showed that he was not only going to deliver as a number one pick but that he was a special number one pick and he ended up leading the lions to three playoff games. Didn't win any of them but they were kind of spread out in sprinkled throughout his career. And i don't think the lions were ever able to get anything going. Yeah oh hold on a second year. Because the lion seth. They've never made a super bowl ever so it's not entirely matthew stafford's fault it's safe to say on that front but the thing about matthew stafford that makes people think that he can be this savior type figure. Let's be very honest about it. Is his arm. Stafford beautiful sites staffer. How would you describe his arm. And what makes that thing special. You know. I think that everything. That patrick mahomes get celebrated for now throwing off platform the indifference to stepping into passes shifting his arm to different angles. Depending on what windows are open. Matthew stafford has been doing for twelve years and a lot of people. Just don't notice it because we didn't see it. We did see in that way not that often. No matthew stafford is the type of wondrous arm. That's allowed him to problem. Solve at a high level. That's a gift. That's exclusive to the great arms. The ball just looks differently coming out of their hand. And that's the type of thing that matthew stafford has had his entire career. He's always had that blessed arm. And the lion. Seth i mean they were blessed to have that arm for as long as they did. I mean this is the franchise that is most famous for early. Retirements of it superstars right. I mean this is barry. Sanders retiring famously. Early calvin johnson going to do the same and stafford. I think was the guy they hoped would survive the whole lions experience. But he's also the guy who was this quintessential winter at georgia as you say so him becoming the face of a quintessential loser..

"And the more you build it. The more becomes yours. You know their secret passageways the two of you know about and the stone on the outside becomes weathered in its own unique way and has all the markings the makings of your relationship. That argument you once had that thing you did for each other. The difficult time you got through the stormy weather becomes yours. That to me is a relationship. That's what becomes the one. Is that you build something together over time. The reason so many people were all opening ourselves up to her if we if we try in love lives but the reason people get her beyond what's necessary. The reason they walk into unnecessary suffering is because instead of valuing the castle that building all all will build with someone they value the connection they value the plot of land and the plot of land. Which to me is just connection. You meet someone. We have an amazing. And that's that's what you hear. Isn't it someone's treat me badly and what you hear from someone but we have such an amazing connection. It's like saying we have such an amazing plot of land. I don't care you need a relationship. Needs to builders yes so if some person building and looking at the land and how we're going to build on the land and the other person just like the other person's like having a cup of tea on the side of the road then you don't have a builder and it doesn't matter how great plot of land is is useless to you you have to stop valuing the cost over the connection and that to me is how someone becomes the one because they reveal themselves to be the best builder. You've ever met there working in that makes me. I really don't believe in soul mates or the wand. Just gonna find someone. Like i think you could have many ones and i think there's one person that's waiting for you. I was just loved the story of like you know. I met the one. How did you meet in college. You go so. Let me get this straight out. Seven billion people. The one firstly was an indian or chinese because lot of them. Why how why. And more of us not married to from other countries. Somehow the one seems to be the person act and went to your comedy took your same course and who happened to sit next to you. This is miraculous. Exactly i just. I suppose some people are more. Have more of an affinity with this kind of cosmic order. What about chemistry. Is that the same connection like such great chemistry or we have this great. And do you think you can create that with anyone. Do think it's a slow build that what's your take on it. I think it builds up to a point would his okay. I'm going to add one. Caveat is possible to be on a date with someone and not feel chemistry. Not because they're not attractive but because they are not showing any desire for us. I have been on diets in my life where i began thinking. This president's attractive i ended. The date walked away and felt no sign that this person was into me. There wasn't any desire The didn't i didn't feel like this person gave me any compliment or didn't like there wasn't even an energy from this person and then we get off the date and a day later they say. Hey i'd love to see you again. Like what yeah how. What was i on like. I was convinced this person didn't like me so now we don't have chemistry not because they couldn't be chemistry but because this for whatever reason this person wasn't actually showing desire desire doesn't have to be your so sexy desire could be more subtle than can be a prolonged look. There's lots of ways to show it but but when someone doesn't it's difficult for even potential chemistry to exist if there's two people showing desire for each other and within three dates. You're not feeling any chemistry. I do think it's hard to start from a place of having none. I think you can take some chemistry and build on it. But i think it's hard if you're starting from a place of having zero chemistry. Yeah i think so too unless you go to bed for the first time and it's unbelievable and suddenly there's a physical connection that you're like. Wow this i wouldn't have guessed that you and i had chemistry but when we touched and you'd like the same pressure i like an you fit with me in the way i wanna do things and there's something like that. There's something i hadn't predicted the. But i i think if it's not there at that point then saying that it's one day going to be there is is very very. I got that. I agree with you after the break i matthew what he thinks about sex on the first day don't go away. I've spent years telling you how much.

You are so worried on a date that you worry more about if they like you that if you actually like them. You're worried about your appearance. You know you're nervous.

We talk about how you can build chemistry and how that differs from connection signs it. Someone has actually invested in new ways to foster attraction without losing yourself with a person and the drawbacks of what matthew calls the one day wager. Oh well this person's going to be great once we get together once they realize i'm the one once they stopped drinking once they blah blah blah.

And i think then you know i never really found out. I mean you talk about kris hamburger a little bit back in the day. But how did you fall in love with sports at a young age will we grew up. I mean there was. Excuse me there's always some sort of ball in house at two older brothers. They were decent athletes. The middle brother pat turned out to be a really really good golfer We all played football up until the eighth grade amateur rather played like ninth and tenth and as far as we win So whatever season it was. That's the ball that we played with the football football baseball baseball. I took up golf later on played some tennis. Play twelve years of soccer You know that that's just the game. We played basketball. That was what we did during during the season. That's just what we did which the other neighbor kids did You know. I became early on up at longview texas but two and a half hours east of dallas. I came a what was then called the washington redskins fan which now called the washington football team and it was because of a few simple reasons that a four year old mine will fall in love with the team. I mean watching westerns with my dad. And i'm rooting for the american indians on horseback..

"Really have to mulch it because it fills in everything but everything has to compete in so the weaker plants are going to get pushed out. Yeah that's what i don't like. Yeah there are some that you just they just like take over everything and you have to. It's everything that you can do to try and keep. This is kind of how my corn flowers have taken off which i've never heard of somebody having to battle corn flowers. They're beautiful. But i'm telling you it's insane. How much that they're everywhere my yard. Yeah i think it's a good year for those because mine have been really been doing really well as as well okay. So we're talking about this because we started We are on a new series. And it's going to go for quite a long time about the parables of jesus and we started off with a very famous Parable that i think most people recognize. And that's the four soils. Yeah it's the pair of all that's in matthew thirteen which is where jesus introduces us. Parables in the purpose of parables. And so we're kind of going to jump around a little bit in matthew thirteen but this is where there's a turning point in the ministry of jesus. I think it's interesting. Don't you think it's interesting that this is what he chose to do in his ministry. This is the teaching style that he decided to go to At this boy. And what do you think. I think it's because we remember stories. We love a good story. Yes i do at least and you remember if it's a gripping story menu remember tidbits about or even the entire thing. Yeah it's a great way to reveal truth to someone who seeking And so obviously obviously in addition to it being you know these stories being interesting and engaging and intriguing they also have a hidden meaning behind them they have there's a spiritual meaning behind them and so Let me just say for the record. I'm looking right now in english gardens images that is my house. It is it totally. Is i like it though. I liked it. Okay so matthew. Thirteen the disciples come to jesus and ask him. Why do you use parables when you talk to the people. Jesus answered the knowledge about the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you but not to them okay. Let me stop you a minute was do you think why would they have asked that question. Why do you use parables. I hadn't thought about it until now but wasn't this a standard teaching practice or is this kind of a a thing that jesus introduced in in your research. Did you ever find out. Parables were using the old testament. They were not as much as this. Not as much as jesus that we're aware of right..

"Mr matthew tie welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. This is really awesome. Now you prefer me calling you matt right yes met and it's pronounced. Hi yes tie is. High was the origin of your last name. You don't mind me asking so so in chinese is actually pronounced tie psyche with. It's a common chinese last name But when my parents went to when they were raised in vietnam so they had that translated to thai. Okay hey jay is just because it's easier for people. I think rather than getting irritated when people don't say that's yes that that sound. These people saying that no not really they just either say i like a t h yes but or tie like thailand away but the correct pronunciation is now the accepted the way you you and your family preferred is tied high. Okay okay and you said. Your parents grew up in vietnam. Yeah there were They're were raised there. Okay and So we're we're chinese but I didn't really know what i was back. Then when i was little. I didn't know if i was chinese or amis or cambodian because my grandparents were from there to okay also. They grew up in in vietnam as well. Yeah okay so that's interesting we my family has migrated around the region For years It i don't know exact story Because i don't really asked that they don't really know either. My parents don't really know either. Okay but i'm Ethnically chinese ohio. My parents my family ethnic chinese We take a minor dialect called a do. Not many people speak that is like a very low percentage of people in china and china like one region. I suppose yeah one city. Okay down down in the south southeast part of china okay. The part that's closer to vietnam. Yes okay So i only met a lot more of these people when i visited singapore. And that's where my wife's from singapore. Okay so a majority seems like a majority of people migrated the singapore so. That was the first time that i've met a lot of people with your background with my background. Without language and i. I can speak it that well anyway so growing up. What did you speak my To my parents. I spoke to you. Okay they didn't teach me enemies. They know vietnamese. They cantonese didn't teach me. But you okay so they they only spoke to me and my siblings and do that a minor dial I suspect is so that they can keep their conversation private. I mean between between the two. It's very advantageous for immigrants to be able to talk in front of their children without their children understand. So they did that to you. Oh yeah and they still do that to you. Isolated still do. I've picked up a few words here and there. But you're getting a little wiser about me right now aren't you. That's cool so growing up. It was really english. You grew up here. Houston yes. I grew up here in houston So as english is my first language. Okay not really my myron dialect. I'm not really fluent in english. So i speak english and a little bit of my language with my parents. So it's kinda combination with to these beginning other languages a so. I know basic mandarin. Okay is that something you learn later on or growing up as learn later on. Yes i'll that.

Hell if you took a little five minute nap passenger seat. You'll miss the town. Wow that small. One high school three middle schools. But then that that allowed you if you were athletic right that allows you to stand out even if you're not white or black right. You're asian american athlete. But hey yeah pools not that big right and it's funny. I never really thought of it. Like that growing up in texas. Because i was actually forced in sports because my dad was an athlete he was. You know i you could say. I had a tiger mom that had me on a time schedule. Kumaon math piano lesson than the swimming pool muslim for eight years did all pretty much every sport every team sport and i stuck with team sports because i didn't like individual sports. I didn't like being in the water being alone. I loved being around teammates. Talking sharing capri suns in orange slices. And you know after after the soccer game in my dad was kind of a guy that always was intramural. Soccer leagues even in dallas. While having two kids myself my sister. Sally and so he forced me into it. He was like you're going to do it. You're going to be good at it. And i didn't like it. I really did not like sports in the beginning of felt forced if felt like you know i would much rather be hanging out. Maybe playing and sixty four mario kart or something with with my buddies is of having to go to practice practice. Was you know it's. It's a very disciplined thing. And i was rebellious at first but anyways yeah i ended up loving it. There was a transition for me where You know. Football and sports started to mean something more than just a thing to do or thing i had to do. It was very much a part of my upbringing. But part of my life as an adult as well and Coppell was a town. Were shops closed. On friday nights friday night out the game that lights in real life in real life in in the flesh in i love going back and so seeing that spirit. ten thousand people at playoff games. You know bigger than what i played in college you know in in that was the thing to like on. That's not fair. But i thought it would just progress and get bigger you know. And he's still going back. They people were huge. Mums on homecoming. Carter's in fresh cut grass and you see cows and and texas dallas changing always but i love those small towns that still have that spirit got ask you. Did you experience what we today would consider anti asian racism any kind of prejudice. Were there other. Asian americans other create americans in this town in your school. You know there. There was a couple. Was you know. I would say suburbs. You know very fortunate enough to have very hard working. Parents set allowed us to stay in a middle class environment and they had an esl program so the middle squad went to go capelle east broncos. They had esl for all the you know the students coming in. That didn't know english and my cousin was eventually part of that program and so there was diversity in sports again. You know. I didn't really i. You know there was sobering moment charles. Like oh yeah. I'm the only age here but when you practice every day for so many hours doesn't really matter when it comes to the playing field. You know what they look like on the outside. If they can put up a layup they can put up a layup and Yao ming was when i was a middle premiere. Asian athletes six two. So i had a six inch growth spurt and i had growing pains and there were times where people were like. Hey garba yao. Ming now okay. I'll mixed emotions about that. Those are the silvery moments. Yeah that okay. That's the way identify me. But yao-ming sick athlete right yao. Ming is you know he's carbon a new path and he was inspiration for me in people like that win. Who is vietnamese linebacker. Protect saying that's right. Play for the dallas cowboys. Yeah look fifty nine. Those are the guys you know. So i would prejudice. I was always welcomed on every team. I was lucky enough to either. Make the backup or sometimes get to be a starter. Julia wide receiver. I was tight end. Defensive end oh wow okay a play basketball because the height you know. I didn't have hands by. Coordination was late because grossberg than you had your beanpole with. No you're you know you're tripping on your feet and then they're like just put them on defense he just go tackle people. Yeah so. That's when i start playing defense men in linebacker But but yeah. Texas is wow such a sports. Heavy cultural may be even people called religion kind of place. Have you been no no i. I've visited austin. I've been the dallas going through the airport. I have friends in houston. But i've never really spent any time in texas. Gotcha yeah now. It's a wild wild place. I would guess that where you're from and stuff is one of those places that this last year with the shutdown and no contact sports right others. They must have been one of those areas that was really grinding against the restrictions because so much of their life is wrapped up in these high school level sports. Yes and man.
