"That's, that's an issue the products that right? But don't give me this look thing. No, it's just I don't look like I'm gonna talk about spring loaded locks than when I do I feel like start with that. Yeah, I know. Yeah. I'm not here to coach. But I, I appreciate. But if you're the type of brain to thinks about that shit at all. I think about, that's so beautiful in, in weird and different. Yeah. Share that with me. All right. Okay. Well, thank you that, I like that. I saw my confidence was built up with that. But then also slammed down with enough that pretty thing. But it's fine. It's evening out. But so the continues so the spring, loaded lock. It's such a. Hab habitual thing. So when you get in the bathroom, you click the spring, you forget, did I do that because you're not even thinking it's just it's habit. And then you're squatting on the toilet or whatever, like you're, I'm sure squatting, and you're also you look over and you can't tell if the spring loaded lock has been pressed internet. There's no indication. So now it's just a mystery. So either you just risk it. Please stop blocking. Who gives a fuck me? I mean, who cares because there's remember I've never locked it yet, because you're a weirdo you get off on that show on it and watch me try to piss with an erection. Why what, what I mean? Because if someone's going to walk in, and you sitting in the, that's, that's a psycho, it's different for dudes than it is for women because guys, you're standing, it's almost like a typical position, you'd be in. But for girls were squatting. We're getting our Watson. And if a lot of the time, there's my beef also is the bathroom. Door opens directly like into the restaurant, there's no buffer. Sure. You know, so big in New York. So right so small spaces opened the door. You're squatting someone eating pasta sees you. It's just it's like I'd rather not have that happen. You'll survive. There should be a there's universal. So you would think with the spring, loaded lock there'd be, you could see, like once his Preston, you see red. But there's nothing and then sometimes the spring loaded locked as even go in front of it's like an Audi belly button. It almost looks like an Audi even though you press it in. I'm very talented. If you're thinking about this odds are so are a million other women. Right. If I were you which I'm not thank. Thank God I will make a little small doorstop or that fits in the purse, it's great that says,.

Maybe you know, I don't know. But. So anyways, I was a wall, and it was fun to talk to people because I got to not show my face, but I you know, kind of product a little bit. But usually you are talked like. The mascot voice. Oh, I don't know how to do voices. Sometimes it's southern sometimes it's like Simpson's exactly nobody trained you to do that. Right.

"I was watching on the sideline and I was like, man's guy is like he's just he's super inciteful love everything that he's saying. He kind of talked about how his last year wasn't the year that he wanted to be why it wasn't. And I was like, dude, you are. I watch bangles games. Why? Because I wanna see, you do what you do, your beast. You're insane, and your thoughtful and smart. Like that's what they're very fun. And there's very few. It's such a team sport faces covered all wearing the same thing. There's such small tune to show any individual other than the player in or after you score. So imagine if you for the game. So have you worked keyboard comedy works in Denver. I've been there. I've not worked that you should work. Yeah. Well, yeah, that's like saying you should play Wimbledon right through Do the hate. the, hey, have you thought about the movies and no one ever not saying you should that should happen? I love comedy work. When we're there, we will tell them just just calm right now, all air. No, but the idea of that place like they en- really all the clubs that you perform, they treat you as the headline there, like you're the reason people coming in in see and bind drinks by what do you want to drink? What do you want to eat? Most beaches, this way they treat you really you end up going back forever? Yes, treat you really well, and that's the way downs guy should be treated them. And I think a lot of people like you already getting paid for shut up to me. This is why can't the Canadian football CFL's never gonna outlet. You're not gonna get more viewers more fans down in the United States CFL. They should just be like, hey, they're the no fun league where the crazy football age and every kick off each team gets a a dog, not a Rottweiler, but. Order collie touches your leg. You're automatically down like, and that's it. And we, we. A little bit a little strip of bake like put like inside of a chew toy like a treat, a little strip, obey. Skin, the football, and then boom. And now the dog's chasing after the guy, and it's five of crazy lowly. Everyone that comes to see fell game. You get healthcare. That's it. We're giving Healthcare's every Royds legal. That's what we do. You can instead of a quarterback, you get like a fire, the ball out of a shirt, Cam, boom, you know not to bring into sad, no, but John McCain, who was, you know, celebrate his his life and one of the things I loved about him was as a as a veteran. He was the one that set out loud. This is a problem that the NFL is getting paid by the United States military to do those flyovers, which we all loved until I realized, oh, this is a recruiting tactic by our military, John McCain, who was he was the one that pushed. He was like, this is wrong and celebrate that he that he would be willing to go against his party. John McCain, who was a was a prisoner of war, correct? Made friends very publicly with John Kerry who is not of his who was someone who is a veteran, who then came back and marched against the war. Yes, that he died. And with him goes all. That I hope not. Got. So last last sitting here with you guys. Hey, let's that's a star stiff. Some Dr. NFL seizes upon a staying in the NFL and the NFL is finally addressing the issue that need them to address. Finally, violent day are getting beer cycles. That's. Dressing the longline beer veterans you ever gone down the YouTube rabbit hole of watching fights in the NFL snap have not. I did. It's like I will never take my son to a game. Why? Because it is the bar at two five AM now as letting everyone out, but with more anger. Because if your team's losing or something's happening, it's just it's just a fricking free and it's a violent sport. It's just why it's not like NASCAR where maybe see a crash, I mean, but it's just a, you're watching violent and you're getting ready for guys to hit each other..

"I bet some people up top said, did you see what she was wearing last year? What is she going to wear this year? But I'm like your this is this is this should be called the Serena Williams. Dress code. Yeah, it is basically because no one else is pushing that envelope else's wearing a body suit. Yeah, you know, you're not gonna see that. All right. Let's let's move onto the Johnny football league or Canadian Football League. I don't know how much Canadian football you watch on a big Montreal away. Yeah. Yeah. Sketch Awad who's. Amilton outlaw. So the CF l. is now when pay rough writer rules rules, they are allowing props to be part of touchdown. Offish crocs this level, as long as the players don't hide it in their uniforms, no foreign object being removed. So they can take pull up from like a cheerleader can hold it or something, bring it on like. So sign of this is like the all negro wave at the roast battle like, hey, are you going to be the stadium eleven? No, I gotta go shopping. I gotta go. One of the score and then take a sledgehammer to a watermelon after. Way memory in loving memory of Gallagher, he's not dead. I wish you, oh, is he not look this and think about how about how races think about how big the Canadian end zone is? Right? Ain't ends up. There's a lot of real estate work, like Canada. It's not an end zone. It's a stage. Wide open, a lot open spaces, really white it is. But when you think about it, there is this is like them. I feel like it's CFL saying the NFL. You are the no funding. That's right. This is true though. Like I said, there's no no easier time being the prime minister of Canada just just say the opposite of Trump, right? It's just what CFL's doing doing it. And they're basically saying, look, do fucking lay down for you. Wanna lay down for. Golf is like a drop zone for your bother gonna have like a protest area, help yourself. You want. Here's some props, you ought to black leather glove for your hand. I mean, I mean, I, I want, you know, we know Scott Thomsen, aka care top. I think he would be. Isn't that his name look it up. He maybe dominates, maybe goes on the Canadian tour. Now, this proper for the sky is grey. If he's like doing the halftime show because of all the props, he just makes it work as I wonder what we'll see. I'm sure see a lot more prop bets. This. What I'm gonna say the NFL look at this. This is not gonna erode the game, not gonna make it bad. You're giving these guys CT and they're going to be eating out of a straw when they're forty eight. That's a fact about NFL. That should be one of the touchdown celebration. Shit eating straw, having a steak sandwich through a straw, which is what they're going to be doing an eighteen years. At least you can do is let them jump around and sign up football with sharpie. I never understood the animosity of the NFL towards its players. It's just like these. I know that you're -ployees, but it's just maybe the reason this. Is there your brand right? And if they're not who they are saying, like, why are people excited about the cease? This Serena thing that's happening wire. Excited about the season? Well, they're excited because of Tom Brady, and they're excited because of Aaron Rodgers their excited because of what these guys can do. Why saw who Pam Oliver interviewed aged green..

"She is the mouth piece for motherhood is the mouthpiece for postpartum depression. The reason why as far as you think about women's sports around the world. All right. Diana Trask. By the way in the WNBA is breaking all kinds of scoring. Okay. Scored twenty five points. She has like unbelievable playoff record. She's on fire. I guarantee you sixty seventy percent of all men don't even know who she is. She went, came from Yukon, unbelievable. Now she's in. I came into Phoenix. She's in the NBA and she'll dominate k.. There is a sport that men and women both watch that is a women's sport. It's called tennis. I do the joke on stage. I say, what other sport can I watch a men's match? The broadcast networks switches over to women's match, and I stay on my seat watching an interested and I love them. I watch tennis with my mother growing up and we could both be interested. I mean, if the I love that it's it's it is I think one of the more gender equal sports doesn't make it does the patient equal. I really do. I know they're playing last. They're not playing as long. It is equal in the grand slams which I think is good. Yeah, I think overall, the pace should be equal because by the way, length of match doesn't matter to people like people complain about baseball being too long. So the five John is ner three day thing. Nobody's policing. We have more that, yeah, most people like get it done in three. Let's get a men's only concern with that. I think it should be. I really do. I, I, I agree with you. Ninety percent, you think to the men's draws more competitive. And I think the five-set thing, but, but, but again, again, I, I mean, this is an interesting conversation for me too, but I want you, it's so it's based on hours of work. So now this is like an hourly thing. It's like now you play a long longer match. You should get paid. You'll pay longer because you thousand for each extra hour, you'd think what it really should come down to is is people that are tuning in and buying tickets, who are they tuning in what I'm saying? So believe you're talking about Serena. We'll just talk about muga Ruta last year or two years ago in Serena's always always brings us up and she should the women's final sold out before the men's final because she she, she was going to maybe that grand slam, and then she got tight, and yeah, so yeah. I, I. Yeah, if we're talking ratings, I think it should go by what the money that's coming in. Who are they trying to watch as far as like, men are playing longer, but then but then you start getting in within their physically bigger. I don't know. It's it's interesting conversation. I think it's great that we can even have the conversation we're so close already quality, which is yeah, which by the way is was the vision of Jean King genius tour and all that stuff from the gecko and it's a fast cigarette company was the tour. Remind yourself and like gin it like the Guinness Book a beer that's here. Like people got drug where like what? If we had the longest fingernails in the world and by the way, this is something that I think doesn't happen sports enough. I would love the French Open to be like, guys. We fucked up. Yeah, where whatever you want, we didn't US open golf do that this year where they were screwed up the course, we made it to heart. Got yes, Mickelson. Play when I nine beers. Yeah, I was like, dude, this is golf. This is you cheating on your tax, the anthem, fuck up there and let it roll off is, here's my question for you. Did the French Open do this to censor Serena, or did they do it because they wanted the athletes all dress, similar this attack on days veered? I think they feared the next step. I think they a circus..

"That's okay too. This Shelley quick hits. When as you mentioned before, when did the French Open become Wimbledon in this way? Isn't it? I think you're pronouncing are. I think it's Wimbledon. One hundred percent highness town lawn tennis club when it become because I'm curious to talk to you guys about this. Serena Williams wore the black catsuits. When did you last year? Last year at the French Open, and I think it helped her with circulation just so she sang and maybe does. I mean, you know, they've got those like copper sleeves and stuff with hybris. Iverson sleeve understood if any of that. It's the athlete think something works like it works. Yeah, exactly. The French Open seems to me like the more open open. The ranch is the French fashion. Every break like the town is the headline that I, this jurists asked you the headline. Every headline I saw was the French Open cracks down on Serena rare band, right, advanced. And so I, I'm a skeptic naturally, you dig further. So I dig further and it says, well, what they actually did was implemented address code. But then I'm thinking, let's dig even further than that. Did they implement that? Because they hate Serena Williams. I don't know the answer to any of this. I know a lot of my colleagues would say, which is this is this could be very race motivated. I don't know if it's race motivate, but I do think France. Francis like wear black people in the nineteen twenties went to live because it was like more open in night, correct. And if you don't want black people, you're not gonna win the. World Cup. So I thought the French hated the juice. I didn't think straightaways, but the other part about it, she wants to wear pay. You know what I'm saying? Pyre wanted to smoke during a match, let it out. Right? You could have open sex in the locker. So is it was this? Was this implemented to crack down on Serena, was implemented a crackdown other or other players going to ask yourself? Why? I never had a dress code up into this point. It is weird. It's weird because other players aren't wearing that you wanna wear what you're most comfortable in. Like the second I saw Lleyton Hewitt wearing like a backwards hat, like he was rushing aid at Michigan and like it was so weirdly on his head, like kind of like halfway back on his house, that stuff on your well, how about this? How like anything goes into? How about this? Let's talk about venue for moment the All England, lawn tennis club is a prestigious private organization that me and you cannot enter if it isn't for the week of Wimbledon. The French Open is equally as office here in. Bang, flushing. We can go play on center court right now. Can we sign up front? Yeah, I've done it. It's a public park, right? If a woman wants to wear a cab, lack hot latex, which I think would be digital. Yeah, I don't understand. I mean, just think about it from venues is it's a bad Luther say, has she responded she? I mean in a weird way. You say she clapback around. I don't think she clapback. I think what she essentially said was a great relationship with the French Open. I will do what they asked me to do in other words, clapback clapback but no. But I do think she what's clapback clap, cats, someone snaps back, somebody clap, but I think it's a, it's a slippery slope clothing. And I think it I, it's not necessarily racially motivated. However, I do think they're like, well, she wore that last year. Yeah. What's next? Yeah, we got to cut this off at some point zero t and lingerie next time, but, but by the way, but I also would love that this is what I love about tennis. The athletes get to express themselves. Yes, they're not. They're not forced to wear the same as their teammate uniform their sport. And there have been many examples of people trying to make fashion statements that actually impede their play. Yes, and it's coach. I should've warned that. It's you and I have always regretted playing Skiba. They were just a mistake. He lost your toenails. Good, six, thank God. They came back, but the, yeah, I this, this does this did come out of left field for me and also French Open. Like do you want ratings? Do you want? Number one number two who like I said before, nobody better be taking shots at Serena Williams right now..

I thought you were for us for our money were the funniest thing on there because you do something that we really love in which is this is their sporting comedy. So we're, we're alone. We feel like out there, you guys are alone. I mean, at least in in, well, you were collectively were your lonely. Each other, we often say is lonely than being allowed. No, but it was great, but you see the right opportunity comes along. Yeah, it's like in and you're working so hard to do and people like, where did Michael Kosta? Where do you come from? He's been doing STAN of this years. He's, you know, he's made a career out of the hustling like a motherfucker on this show. Working on this show pilots here. You know, people told me when I when Lewis black broke guy came out of nowhere. Like you mean the twenty three years before this that he's been doing stand up. Comedy just is such a silly part of our business. It is guys. Guys like you can't worry about it and you try to enjoy the journey. Sure. Because at the end, I think that maybe it's all we have. It's like sports though. You gotta have almost like a quarterback or a pitcher, or even even again, is what we love about. Do you talk about tennis? We love federal federal guess just smoked on a on a shot at a passing shot. As he goes to the net, maybe he's, he's winded is terrible. You gotta just forget about that shit merchandising or take one positive. One thing that you didn't let that feed you for the next. You need to be dumb. Yeah, I, that's what I think it is. I think it's easier if you're dumb and you forget stuff because if you really hold it all in and remember turn into a psychopath in sport and and also I think the other, you know the other acquittals was that's what killed on rocker. It is. Yeah, is that I think you have the seven train. You have to be open to whatever opportunities that lie anywhere within the world of what you're doing? Yeah. So I think about guys like who, let's take like Shah. McVeigh like great guy didn't blow up the building in Oklahoma City and my Timothy different. So Vince Mahorn brother, Sean McVay of football player played. You know, obviously where she played in college, he was saying to himself, you know someday there was a dream inside of him to plan the NFL. He not going to happen not big enough. He's not fast enough. He's not strong just so this kid right away starts going to coaching, and then it becomes a wonder, pinned head coach, Jon Gruden two point. Oh, and he does it. That's another avenue within this sports world. You know, you were probably all along being like I deserved my own show. We watch you were like you do deserve your on show. You should do that of this opera daily show comes up and you crush it, and then that may be is the pathway to, which is, I don't know.

Yeah, I'm gonna say joker. Yeah. I'm gonna, say joker and then and then. Women. I still don't think Serena jugglers has thirteen see what you said. Eight timbers has fourteen Jovic if he wins this ties Pete Sampras. I think that while about that. The could have fourteen French Opens for all we know. But all has like he probably has seventeen or eighteen or seventeen, and this is insane. It's insane. We're literally watching the best I think. So we're golden age of tennis. And by the way you got three guys that have over that double digit went. So it's not like you're watching seventeen vase and fetter has what like twenty one or twenty twenty one. Yeah, but all of them are. There is on John one person. So it isn't. You know you, you're watching the golden age of tennis right now. I agree. Twenty federal one finish twenty in seventeen thirteen deflects this greatest ever question. He's so they go, Joey. Just played at that. Don't worry. Don't worry. Meanwhile, he's just like getting closer getting like he could be like, but in a dollars for such that is, that is maybe the greatest accomplish when you think about, can I say my own them in the French? Obviously he's beat him in Wimbledon. He's beat Federer like he came up in the time of the greatest. Any still has like. Eighteen grand shows. Yeah, Grady is there's a moment of of Nidal back who's like underneath the stadium. I think Wimbledon and he's like getting exciting. He's pumped up.

"And by the way you will get a degree. Probably every parent would send their kid to stay. It'd be look, some women are going to get hit. Yeah, we're gonna get hassled winner. Gonna get hit in this program. We're gonna cheat on some tests if we can get away with it, God bless it. If we and if we, we win the big ten and we here. So we're trying to if there's problem solve, what we're going to try and do is we're going to protect our coach. Yeah. So that you guys have this guy is your coach for as much possible if yet, so that that means he's gotta throw us. Wife onto the bus. He's gonna do that. That means you gotta throw other ministers on the bus wolf, throw them under the bus. We don't give shit. This is the guy. He's the one who controls all the play. He's play caller. He's recruit. This is our guy. We're going to protect him at all costs. If they said that, then you would say, okay, fine. At least STAN. I understand why being honest. So, I mean, I do think that there is this, like, let's go up to the line and here's the line. This is where it's drawn and it for as long as we are are alive, sport and athletes will try to make the most out of the rules and everything they can to win. That's the steroid. That's the argument that, hey, this wasn't illegal. You made it illegal, and now we're, you know, at the time I was taking like tubs, drink lily, eating tubs of creatine creating was the was the late night. What I went to annoy play tennis freshman year. I was like, you know, hundred seventy pounds six, four. And our strength coach was like, you gotta start doing this creating thing. So I would do this creating shakes and I would go to my English class. And I would just like have I would just feel ill. Stomach aches and like take the shit in in the English department. And it was finally said, the guy go, can I stop doing this? I don't like the feeling and he was like, yeah, but it was like, you know, I guess I should push through, but it was just it's not. It wasn't natural. It's in your this. This drug is in your own body. Here. You can take ten million times more. No. Has it at this level for a reason play three at university of Illinois tennis. I'm not like, you know what I mean? I'm not, but these top guys who was the one into it varied over the years. But our number one was a player name Amir Delic, who won the NC double championship and the being sixty in the world on the ATP to how fantastic then regime ram played one and two. He's still playing on the tour. I had a friend whose kids my little older than you Mickey Chowdhury. Okay. He believed was there ninety to ninety four and played number one. I wouldn't know. I wouldn't know Mickey Chowdhury, but it's possible great Finn and then obviously the best tennis player to come out of Illinois as of late as Kevin Anderson who's currently six in the world as ING is higher than is ner. Yeah, he's American. He saw American South Africa, South Africa, so we can't like him. No, we can't leave can on. You can't even be friends now. I can't be friends with them, but when his wife Instagram messages me before his US open final and says, hey, we have an extra take. Do you want to sit in the box? You like, I'm here. Either will be sky for the daily show doing in the box. So let's do a little prediction. Then we'll take a break who'd predict the the men's and women's draw in their final joke. If it's just one that masters event, which was really fun for me to see and when he is competing and when he's got a little bit of that asshole, chip on the shoulder, it's great for tennis. Yes, I would love love love to see him win. So he's going to be in either Nidal or yours. They'll meet each other in the semi's in probably having looked at the draw yet, but. You know, you're talking about a guy who when he came on the tour, he used to default in the fifth set because he had asthma Novak Djokovic because such a pussy really? He was a Wigner, yeah, he was a pussy. He have breathing problems stop..

"But you have to give them credit because like you said, Pete Sampras like, I'm going to serve it twice. I'm gonna win every match he the pistons were like, if you're not gonna call the ship. Yeah, we're going to nail people. You can't get matter competitors for figuring how to win. That's it. You can't. They're like here. So by the same token and I'm gonna bring it to football, there's because I just saw that there was an interview with with Tom Brady and they're talking about this Alex Guerrero stuff with, you know, the guy who's trainer TB twelve and this guy. Anytime anyone brings up, he ends the interview and he's like, he just really gets up the phone. Again, we are machine guys. I want Tom Brady to to be the greatest quarterback of all time. Why? Because he comes from the school that I love and it just means very had didn't even start. No. I mean, he started the ad that was saints drew Andrew Lloyd, Carr promise, whatever Henson was. Hansen was the most decorated quarterback recruit that Michigan has ever had? Yeah. True. Most true. So who's on the cover of the news. Every day, like this kid from Brighton hit seven home runs yesterday, and it's like that was all baseball. Baseball. He was like, yeah, I was saying, but, but so Tom Brady thing is that like the idea of, here's the line, we're gonna go right up to it. Yeah, we're gonna go right up to it because you drew the line right here. Here's the rule. Yeah. You say you can inflate deflate the ball to this level. Yeah, and I'm more comfortable with a little bit softer. We just all our, I'm gonna go right to that level. Why? Because that is the line. And if he would have come out right afterwards and said, look, we understand that this is the line. We went right up to it as close as we could. We came to close will never do that again. That's our fault. I'll take the blame for it. We're not trying to cheat just trying to glitter, go to the edge of the rule that as a stylish by you guys, we fucked up. I'm sorry if he just said that, would there be any backlash whatsoever? None. I don't. I, I don't think you get suspended. I definitely don't think it's better for four games. I think it suspended maybe for one game maybe helped daylight. Didn't he like sledgehammer. His phone was all this faith. Your phone, your urban do that? No, urban. Just the Arab is Auburn said, how do I delete old text messages in the settings on his phone? Which by the way you can retrieve. I don't understand why the NCW doesn't step in right now and say, you know, we're gonna launch your own investigation here. Like we, we don't trust you to do it. Yeah, it's like saying basically was like, hey, we went through Republicans to investigate Trump there. What they say also that like the Republican committee is invest, investigated, Trump, Russia collusion found no collusion, but it's it's like when the cops, but also by the way, a Republican. So let me just also say but but true. It's like, let's have Mitch McConnell. Do a little run, run his investigation or no, let's have Muller. Run the investigation. Give you his findings. And then let's have Mitch McConnell, decide what the punishments going to be Honey. I know you think cheated on you, but I've done my own thorough investing. My friends think that. Okay. Yeah. This whole like it. I mean, again, the the again, the urban Meyer of it all the sort of like the program in winning is we, we said this on richeisenshow we said, if Ohio State would have come out as an institution said, here's the deal we care about winning more than we care about morality more than we care about. All we do is we care about winning this guy wins for us. We're going to give him my wall side of love. You know what you would have said he would have been like, there you go. Thanks, thank you for being honest, we care to winnings and we're and that's our first priority..

"It's mental type of thing. And I'm just like when we talked to Mike Taylor at the NFL network, we're like what being Aaron Rodgers and a mid level QB. Yeah, like adult yet, Andy, Dalton, he's like Aaron Rodgers can put the ball, the both a great they get here and Rodgers can put the ball in a tiny one foot by one foot desk where thing that either I have to interfere with the guy to get to. And either have to hope that they're not gonna throw a flag either. They miss it. They're not gonna like right, or I got to hope that the guy drops it because I'm not getting it. So is it the these guys, you all have this right tools and whatnot, but they just have that sort of, I think everybody has the same tools. Once you reach a certain level, not everybody has the same toolbox if you will. That's that's taking for my old task coach. Yeah, they can. You know, some players when it gets tighter test coach was Richard Willie. Was that you would train and very weird. Amazing, but they when the going when it gets tight, they almost relax. Yeah. Meanwhile, when it was tight with me with my tennis, it was like, oh my God, we have to win this point. This is a huge point. It looks like he's yawning some and and Pete did that the most boring tennis champion of all time Sampras his jaw was always open. He was just like just slapped south breathing a mouth, straight up mouth out there, but it helps. They just get relaxed that, yeah, doll was so fun because they're still so fun to me. He doesn't look relax. No, it looks the opposite. Because you can tell that either he was using it to him up, but he was exasperated the and he, yeah, he cared. Everyone's Serena lost to Kim Clijsters and she was talking about the other night on the stage, but she threatened the the, the woman who call the footfall honor. She threatened a killer something. They gave her plant belly. I thought that was so good for tennis, average fan. You need to see how much they care. They're gonna. She's gonna kill this like see, and they were like, of course it got racially? Yes, you know it was a, it was just like, look, she's she's the number one because she cares that much. Yeah, number one, that's one Venus. All of her beads fell out of her hair as it was. It's like watching at the supermarket, her purse just falls on your like, who is gonna help. She is bad. The next person she sees I hope is not our kids. He's gotta get hit. But I think that's why when I can't remember how many times has happened, but when Venus played Serena in the finals. It wasn't as compelling to watch for like it sucks win because they cared about each of which is also nice. Nice. But you wanna wanna wanna watch the finals. Does any other sport have that? Like even if the, if the Toronto's playing Montreal, like it's not like, oh, these are Canadian. I mean, it does anything that as Montreal team in hockey. I'm talking about hockey, but no, what I'm what I think is weird and I think this is my phone. It's it's throwing me off. What I think is bizarre and I go back to his string doctor. This is what people get upset about is like when they see since of all these, like a you like circuit games, guys, who sort of play with each other on like USA national teams when like an NBA game ends and there's my trash talk to whatever. And then guys are just hanging out. For generation? Yeah, bad boy, the pistons, but then I'm like, oh, we'll bre n- Dwayne, Wade have been planning as they were nine. They love other. Boat trips together. The the thing of it is in and I didn't understand this because I was the McEnroe hated Borg because for us growing up, that was like that we watch like when our parents went to go buy a Chevy Malibu up, we're sitting at George Weber shores, lever Chevrolet on olive street road.

Yeah, he's, he's 'cause I'm six four and he's, I think I think the average like six one and a half six to is like the perfect height for tennis, and that's what most world number ones of been right. Like I look at John is there. I'm like, you're gonna break your six move hers me that Curtis. That's all. Try to change the channel watching Kevin Anderson who made the US. He's buddy. He played Illinois. He's it's like, I, he couldn't max out his. He's he's at the maximum of his of his physical abilities. Right? He and I say that with the utmost respect shares, most athletes can't even come close to maxing out. Right, but he's six, ten only whatever, whatever it's around there. Same John? Yeah. You can only you gotta band at some. It's just so hard. Well, it's so hard because tennis requires so much of you. It'd be like a catcher in baseball. That was six. Six in there? Yeah. Progress, progressively terrible? Yes. Time their careers, their knees. They can't do that. They don't have kneecaps at the end of the because you bent down. That's what tennis is like. If you were playing, John is ner. Every shot to me would be right over than that drops force them to go low at the because I mean also clear out your calendar. John Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, you will still be playing John. Hoti I'm playing John. Janitors still waiting years. Everybody like new that match of Wimbledon that he won like seventy sixty and it was so bad for tennis. It was it was like everyone was tuning into tennis and it was so boring hill on on. It's like when they put the godfather movies all into one. And just chronologically put on it. I'm like it's no z kill Frago. I'm John. When does he. Yeah, I think he was are we are, but are we at a point now where we just Armin John is is probably one of the highest rates are best. He's the best we have, like, why can't we come up with another male superstar? Is TI what's the afro or is he American? He is busy. Who's the guy whose dad was the very good his dad and watch his dad was like the grounds keeper at a country club. Wow. And then he got all this time playing there for companies. He's, you know, when I played on the professional tour and let's be honest, that's what this is all about. We're here. I loved playing. I never really one. I never won a lot what juniors a lot and in in. And then as you progress up the ranks of tennis, you start to realize, oh, this is nearly impossible and you lose it impossible. It's just it's so competitive and you have to be so good and you're competing with the world. You know, like I'm upset that my rackets grip is off and then meanwhile, Novak's over there hitting serves between bomb raids. He's tougher and better than I. So it's mental. Oh, for sure.

"He's like, you look at how hard they've played and for how many years and he's he'll go down as the best clay clay court player in history. There's no question. I don't even think. I mean, I, I don't know why they haven't changed the court for. It's ten, ten times he's won the French. I mean it. It's. Yeah, is it good? Okay. Let me let me ask you this. Is it good for tennis or bad for tennis that the people who are dominating tennis now we're dominating it fifteen years ago. Gem saying, I think it's good. I think it's good who's coming up. You need them. You need personality would stay all have seen. You need someone who dominates enough that my dad who watches one match year, right? I know a doll. Yeah, but what's scary is like, let's say Kevin Anderson wins, one, let's say meals, row niche wins, one. It keeps going one. One. One tennis is going to go back to what his nobody gets. Yeah, but but I think like the American market for tennis is a big one and we haven't had who in America's arena. Mardy fish? Yeah. On the men's side, Serena is arguably Michael Jordan of tennis there is nobody who's even close wants to step up and be like by the way.

And she did have like her best rival got stabbed in the back literally. No. I mean, it's like. Listeners little. Back in her prime Monica sell that stabber and I forget his name and he sure men guy wouldn't even give him the credit of knowing his name. He did that because he was angry that Monica sell us was taking over number one of Steffi Graf and here's why fucking hate it. And also I gotta respect it. It worked. Yeah, it took out. Stephanie became what I mean. It's like nine, eleven nine. Eleven nine. Eleven. We want to change the way America. We wanna affect no of America. They flew two planes into buildings out and now flying is hard. Yep. This is twenty. Fifteen. Twenty were scared of things that that it worked. You want you want to hate them and you went home.

No, but the the idea that that Serena now is and we'll talk to, we'll talk about her in the quickest section of this, but the idea that she is now a mouth piece for mothers and women out. It's like shoo who knew that she would, you know member those the days of Tracy Austin. She play when she was like sick. Her career was like thirty s- thirteen to nineteen. And then she's washed up or Capri, ATI, four Riyadh. Yati won that tournament Hilton Head fifteen, and they gave her a Maserati and she couldn't drive. Yeah, thanks. In it. She just gives it to hide her. We. Caveat seem like the girl who like, yeah, let's get high with Capri Roddy. Right? Why can't we do that on the men's side? Why do I mean the fed has been there forever. I mean, I would tie you know the the LeBron discussion about is he playing too much. It seems to me like what's almost more important now in tennis is can your body withstand a long period of time? It's so hard to win tournaments of the more chances you are giving yourself more opportunity to give yourself the more you can fed. I don't know how he's not injured, how Serena has just been also in the tournament so long. Yeah, we'll whatever it is better to me. You talk about Michael Jordan? Yeah.

"All right, guys. Welcome back to view from the cheap seats. Our guest, as we mentioned is someone who who hits that little van diagram cross section area perfectly. He is brilliant comedian is on the daily show and he's also like top tier tennis player and sports enthusiasts, Michael Kosta welcome to the show. Thank you tennis shirt. I worked for me because that's what you were going to wear. This is the ban tennis are good friends out of Denver, Colorado, tastic indie band husband and wife. They're fantastic. We love them and I worked in honor of you. Great wore tennis now day. One of the US obey one of the US open. I watched an old US open match Pete Sampras I was on the tennis. Champ is like, where I'm at the other day. Sampras and Andre Agassi and the hate tween. The two of them we talked about on this show bubbled up during that like celebrity Ambien celebrity where I got the tipping impress you. I will say Pete Sampras impression, Pete Sampras who I feel like I don't know if you've met him pizza too. I feel like I have no personal relationship with either of them. So go for not funny at all. Like they're, you know, people who would know him in San RAs? Not funny, not does not have on Edberg. Seems like a guy would take his dick out at apart. Exactly. Pete Sampras has written a book and I feel like it's sold four hundred copies. What I mean like like Agassi's book was ghost written by the guy who wrote the tender bar, which isn't amazing. You know also an amazing. Yes. His name of that book yet a lot more shit to hide. Well, yeah. And you know, p p is just boring. Exactly. Also the game was created like it was a faster ball. It was a faster court, so, and he's going to serve and when everything I'll do that. Yeah. And after Pete, they started to make they slowed the ball down this really? Yeah. And then ten and know that Wimbledon change the grass so that it was shame different grass. So they get longer points Sampras and like Kevin Curren member, Kevin Kerr, South African had no other game extent like a monster serve, and he would have like forty nine as in a match, and you can't get mad at Pete for four. He. He was so good. The game said, we have to adjust the plane lowering amount. It's. Yeah, same thing. So Pete boring? Yes. Were one of the greatest ever? Yes. Hundred k book sold for hundred Cup. I mean now granted, it was a book about j. k. Rowling weird. What about the new created? But I love doing this and sports his greatest, specially for just the discussions. You can have about putting people now historical context because I'm constantly looking being like, all right, so Novak, just one? Yes. And you say to yourself? Weird. Where is he on the whole? Because like Roddick and I think we can say getting Roddick is now a verb Roddick means you were there at the wrong time. I mean, like I was, yeah. Could've with Michael Kosta to a party. There were a ton of hot women there. Let's say we're both single. I got Roddick by because he's such a good looking tall guy and a great personality. He got all the women and I didn't. So it's like you. You can easily get Roddick. Jovic could've gotten Roddick by adul- and better, but he did and he was starting to in the beginning of his career. And then what happened. I started eating vegan and it all gonna cry. Crowd chamber suppose sleeps in a cry, oh, Chamber, I, I don't know. But that is does seem like a guy who, again is one of those guys who like could veer into the land of bad boy like, hey, guys. Remember when he beat Roddick at the which I always love the on Mike in front of the whole crowd postmatch interview at the US open as we're on the precipice you as so he beats Roddick in the finals and everyone there is like, fuck you..

"It is an ad campaign about what will you sacrifice in order to because you care because con cabinet has sacrificed. A lot con current with the fact that he is is in order to believe in something you have to sacrifice. Everything I think is the basis of the ASO conquer in with the fact that he is now sort of the face of this Nike campaign and you know, you gotta give Nike credit. I'm not going to stand up and applaud Nike until they stop. You know, having indentured servants in Indonesia, like three year old kids lacing up soccer balls the second you stop doing that. Maybe we will stand up and applaud you, but this I will give credit where credit is due and say, okay, this is actually a pretty good gesture because you knew you're gonna take shit from it. The second they. Put it out there. You knew there'd be country music singers who are showing, you know, videos of their cutting the is out of their Rhody sacks. True. That was coming true. But what I'm saying is this this ad is essentially a rohrschack test is what do you see from this? What are you going to react to what you get out of this thing? Which is pretty neutral. I mean, obviously it's positing a lightning rod person, right? But the ad campaign it self is in showing images of cops shooting people. No, it's not showing images of gross negligence during war. It's not showing images of people burning flags and celebrating that it's not showing images of people throwing up lack power, fists left and right. It's not showing images of people protesting wars. It's not showing him. It's only showing images of athletes, so it's a pretty when you think about it tame add, what you choose to get out of. It tells us exactly who you are. It tells us where you stand and it tells us what values you have. If you watch that ad and start to tear up and go like, you know what? Yeah, this guy put it on the line. This guy sacrificed his career because he's not gonna play anymore. We're gonna play more. No lawsuit against the NFL which I was gonna say is the judge just ruled this week that they can go four with their lawsuit and literally bring in NFL owners because he's charging that the NFL and the owners colluded again, they all got together and conspired against him, hiring him, starring him because of this whole protesting that he sparked. And yeah, he's had some missteps. I don't think wearing the Fidel Castro shirt was the best idea. I think cloud your message and it hurts you what you're trying to say. I don't think wearing the pig. Cops are pig socks. I also don't think that actually helps you in any way. It gives more fodder to the other side, right? And maize makes mistakes missteps, but look, Nike's making a point. And usually when multinational corporations come out about something they go to the right like Papa. John's. Going after these guys like Chick-fil-A going anti. Yeah. Like when you when those things happen, that's usually where they land. So Nike, maybe this new trend for some corporations in raining. I have posited this and this lasting we'll say on it before we head into the break and come back with the great Michael Kosta and that is this. I do think that Nike has taken it on the chin a little bit from Adidas because out on the streets, kids are wearing Adidas and MD's a Niki's all those. They're wearing the, the yawn behind you. I made the the easiest are indeed is like a lot of cool culture. Sneaker culture is moving towards Adidas, but now you're seeing a lot of young African American, which I believe it's like a one point, seven trillion dollar business in the African American community sneakers. That's what I'd read somewhere that a lot of them are saying they are plotting Nike for taking the stand and they're seeing that as such. And so, yeah, there are a lot of Nike stock took a hit and went down three percent, and there are a lot of people were saying, I'll never wear Nikes ever again, really fine..

The Sklar brothers view from the cheap seats are weekly take the world sports, and it is over the wolf sports on what's going on with a great guests this weekend. It's apropos that we have him this week because he was he's a great comedian. He's on the daily show. He's a fantastic tennis player, and of course US opened his in full swing. That's right. No pun intended. No pun intended. As we record this on the Wednesday before the Friday that it drops. Serena Williams in the semifinals and the Dow just won a marathon match last night where he literally had a ridiculous comeback, and it's an adult in its shape you potentially Nidal Djokovic on this end of the bracket and maybe no now is nurse out, but maybe Jovic and a dollar in the finals. Maybe it lines up that way if it might work. So that could be a great finals and Serena's in the women's final, maybe Madison keys. That would be a great final. It's really exciting. I, I love this time of year and I love that time in New York when the US opened his kicking. So we'll talk tobacco cost. That and then later on the show, as we are sort of beginning the the NBA season isn't too far away. And of course the Lakers have got LeBron James LeBron James is in Canada here that I, I did not hear that Ryan breaking this news right out of the Lakers LeBron James. So we wanted to get Bill Walton's take on it. We have Bill Walton a voicemail that he left later on in the show. But first top of the show, the biggest news this week in the world is sports is earth shattering as far as sports goes because it is larger than sports and it is spurring debate all over the place. And of course, just like the whole issue itself. People are getting it wrong. We're, of course talking about con capture Nick appearing in the new Nike ad campaign, which is all about what will you sacrifice them? What would you sacrifice at? I would say, no, he's not Pat Tillman. He hasn't gone off to war, which everybody likes to bring that up. And by the way, Pat Tillman was killed by friendly fire, and he would hate to have his name being brought up. If you read the book that the guy who did John cranny Jon Krakauer did about him, he would not like you to be using his name. So all the people who are bringing his name up and using his name and he probably would. Have liked Colin Kaepernick. He would have appreciated his or would have understood the message that he was giving and not fangled it up and mangled it up into what you think it should be. So of course, naturally along party lines and the way and Ross racial lines. Really a lot of the times you got a lot of white UFC guys saying this guy's in idiot, and you got the white police. You have to general population the police officers association saying Nike and the NFL saying, were urging all of our people to stop using Nike. Then you've got the black police officers assocaitions. We don't agree with the white police off, so it's dividing the police along racial lines. What's insane is if you've watched the two minute spot in a highly recommend you watching the two minutes about you will understand that the the spot isn't about kneeling. The spot is in even about the protest. They don't talk about the cops at all what they talk about in the spot which of course, I'm assuming everyone who hates the spot has not seen spun, but what they talk about in the two minutes Bhatt is are inspiring stories of. People, whether it be Serena Williams out a girl outta Compton, whether it be LeBron James opening up a school, whether it be shaky, am I saying Shaquille team the the, the guy with one hand the phone with one hand making, you know his Mark in the NFL, getting drafted in the NFL, whether it be about any of those people. It is..
