Abby Wambach: If you're not a good leader on the bench, you cannot call yourself a good leader on the field.
"Hey everyone. This show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. The scam is still working from home for the time being because of covid nineteen. Today, we have a very special guest joining us abby Wambach is here with us on skin from the couch she is a two time Olympic gold medalist, a FIFA World Cup champion, and a member of the national soccer hall of fame. Also, she hasn't slowed down in retirement she is now a New York Times. Author and equal pay activists. We I had the pleasure of meeting abby when we spoke to her wife, Glennon Doyle on the show in March and we dragged her onto the podcast as well, and if you haven't listened to that episode, go check it out. It's a good one abby. Thank you so much for joining us today. Welcome to skin from the catch. Yeah. Thanks for having me. I'm so thrilled and honored to be with you all on three different couches. Thou-. Before. We jump into our first question I have to tell you I was looking at our prep for this and there was one bullet in here. That has really made me laugh as I have to share it, which is that you used to have a special card that got you a free Burrito a day from AAA but it stopped working when you're retired that seems passive aggressive for sure to Poli what the F.. Yeah. So when I first got this card, it was Gosh I must've been ten years ago now and you know like the gold cards portly for life like essentially my name is on it and you guys don't know how I go way back. From the early days and I mean I would get a Burrito. Day You guys we're both creatures of habits. I respect this. Yeah. It was crazy and this is before we really knew how many calories were in each burrito. Bowl that I would make or Burrito early days. and. So then yeah, of course when I retired, I was super excited to still be able to get one free Burrito a week for year, but they never really checked up on it but then I think when I got a family when I married Glenn and attained. That you know fifteen dollar meal. Turned into a sixty five dollar meal or seventy dollars meal for the whole family and pull was like I. Don't know if we're GONNA keep floating this for her so. It was a good run while it lasted I'm sorry that you've struggled with that but I did make me laugh as read. So, we're going to jump into our very first question. We'd like to ask everybody it just skim your resume skin my resume. It's so funny because when you retire, that's like that's essentially what I've had to do over the last four or five years of my life since retiring from playing on the national team, and if people don't really know I played for a long time on our women's national team. So Ski. My life I'm the youngest of seven children I grew up in Rochester New York, and I went to the University of Florida and played soccer there for four seasons where after I was drafted number two by the way just remember this folks you don't get drafted number one. You can still succeed I was drafted number two out of college to go play for a team called The Washington freedom the best player in. The world at the time. Mia. Hamm played on that team and it really changed my life because we were able to develop a connection that then transferred into me getting called into the national team and playing on the national team in scoring goals in the national team, and then I had a pretty long career representing his country won a gold medal. I want a couple of medals actually I won a fee. For Women's World Cup. World. Cup. I should say it doesn't matter if you're a guy or girl that's pretty awesome in my retirement I have kind of taken on this activism role that when I play ironically when I played I was a little bit more like just go and do my job and we were going to show our activism rather than talk about it. But when you quit playing, you gotta actually transfer that. Because I can't play anymore I can't show it in the ways that I used to. So I've transitioned into becoming a public speaker and an activist and apparent and wife, and that is my skin. Has a great skin? What is it like to be really good at something where young 'cause I have? No clue. Yeah I mean it's confidence building you know I felt like. Okay. I know that I'm good at this thing over here but I think you know all of us have our little things right? Like no matter what kind of. Place we grew up or family we grew up in or what kind of trauma we we experienced as a child because we all do some of US feel like we're unlovable my case in particular some of us were neglected. Some of us were over parented like we all have problems inside of our family dynamics that for me really allowed me to and gave me the courage to propel in this kind of an individualistic career. So when I was young I kind of was a very big risk taker. I was a free spirit is what they called me, I think that's what they call children who don't follow the rules as much as their parents want them to and I think that the other side of that coin is I was really trying to get the attention of my parents, right. So the very thing that might have felt trauma or hardship from in my childhood is the very thing that made me successful. So I have to always remember that like as much as I as young as seven children. As much as all of us wanted the attention of our parents, I do think that kind of parent team actually shaped me and and allowed me to explore this competitiveness inside. In this drive and this embiid to go after what I needed and what I wanted. So I give a lot of credit to that form of parenting into that trauma
Fresh update on "national team" discussed on Skimm'd from The Couch
"This has to be happening to every woman in every industry in every city in every state in every country in the world. and. So that is kind of been the bedrock and the platform and the foundation of what I build my retirement around and above it's that moment my wife Glennon would call it the bathroom floor moment for me where I had to get real with what was going on and I've dedicated my retirement since then to bettering women's rights not just in sport but beyond because I believe that the disparities. In the gaps are even bigger and more life threatening in the corporate world. You know if we don't have enough women sitting at leadership positions in leadership tables than the products that those companies are creating that go out into the world that define and structure our world are going to be skewed towards males forever. So we have to get more women in leadership positions at every single company in our world. So. That's kind of been really great job security because I know that every single company in the world, maybe not yours is very skewed towards males in in leadership positions and That's just what I've been up to. So yeah. Hard night but like I said, I'm not going to be the victim. You can't talk about the Movement for equal pay without talking about women's soccer the US women's national team has been on the forefront for the fight for equal pay, and there was a lawsuit filed against Refund Twenty Fourteen, and then the lawsuit that the team filed last year against us soccer. I think what was so fascinating to watch is how you guys did it it seemed to be so united as a team effort. We get a lot of questions around negotiation. What did you learn from those experiences? One of the things that I've learned from just playing on our women's national team because even though these lawsuits are kind of at the forefront I think that you have to think more critically and detailed specific about why these lawsuits are even possible..
20 Minutes About A Smart Rowing Machine
"The day we have an interesting guests. Bruce Smith from hydro reuss. Why don't you just introduce yourself little eight? Great to be with you on the show and name is Bruce Smith I'm a Canadian living in America, and and the CEO and founder of a company called Hydro. What's grow? Yeah, hydro is a indoor rowing machine, and it uses some pretty revolutionary resistance mechanism technology to make it quiet, but the coolest thing. Thing about the machine. The part that we love the most about it is that we broadcast not fitness classes, but we actually take the experience of being out on the water rowing, and we have instructors out there. Who talked to you directly live on a beautiful twenty two inch, high definition screen with great speakers, so you actually experienced being out on the water and being part of a rowing crew you know from. From your living room or your bedroom or wherever you machine, so it's like having a penitent Kloss, except it's on a rowing machine that is extremely quiets why it whereas like putting us more broad, you know like almost feeding like you're dancing. Really off focusing on you know creating an immersive experience of being out there rowing exactly so we have trademark this idea of votaw reality and I love Peleton we have A. A time in the office they're they're totally great. It's really fun and it is. You said it's exactly right. It's like being at the club with your friends. You know you're not drinking or smoking, but you're you know you're listening to music or super photogenic people. You know it's fun experience and we love that that's great for us the coolest thing that we could think of doing to take this concept of live. Elo are and create an immersive experience so rather than going to the club every day for your workout, which is great, we can have great music and really really charismatic instructors, but you're actually out on the river, or on the bay, Miami beach or rowing by London, bridge, so, who do you think is it for? Is it like somebody that Audio Patent Than They WanNa? WanNa to mix up the workout as really somebody that is looking for different experience because they don't like going to a club, but they wanna have liberal quietness of actually being outdoors and row. It's for people who are looking for the very best experienced the best workout experience and the best way to connect with their friends, so Peleton has a leaderboard which is great. Great, but you're really competing. You're competing by yourself and you know not that many people have actually wrote out of the water in a boat with other people, but the experience of it is unbelievable. You're right on the water, but most importantly you're moving in complete rhythm with seven other people, Ya, howdy, howdy create that because if I'm Roy like, let's say like on. On, a big rowing team or like even dragon boating like a need to be in sync with everyone right because as soon somebody's out of things not working. That's exactly right. In human beings hardware. They love to do things in synchronicity with other people. It makes you feel better. It's like it's a genuine way of connecting and when you're biking, you know you're. You're like ninety five or one hundred beats per minute, and and really not moving in the same rhythm as as the instructor like you're having a shared experience, but it's not exactly the same rhythm when you're on the rowing machine, you're encouraged. It's actually really easy. You move every part of your body in exactly the same rhythm as the instructor, and so there's some brain. Brain science behind this you know the brain is an aerobic organ like a muscle, you not energy systems like like the rest of your body, and so every time you make a decision in your brain. You're using some energy, and so when you're exercising, you have to keep deciding to exercise and they're really really cool thing about rowing especially when you're rowing crew like. Like, not just on a machine by yourself in a room, but when you're rowing as part of a team, you turn off that decision making process in your brain, because the person that you're following the person in front of you is is making those decisions. You don't have to make them, so you achieve the state of flow much much faster and we know from. From our experience and I know from my experience as a national team coach that has it actually has a profound impact on people. It is the best exercise you can do. It's also US eighty six percent of your body's muscles when you're biking like forty forty five percent of your muscles with you have to use your arms and legs. It's like a full body. And your core and it improves your bone density also, so it really is like. If there was one pill that you could take, that would like. Make you friends and make you healthier. You take that pill. Of course. We feel like we've got that pill. We all would like that, but say so just saw. Listeners can really imagine how the product experience looks like so I'm imagining now you're sitting on a rowing machine and you have like a huge monitor of some sort right, and and you see an instructor like. How do you create that experience off? Somebody actually sitting in front of me. Somebody's sitting behind me and I'm not competing against. Against them, but we actually working together like how you create that certainly question, so this isn't like we didn't just go. Go to the river with some of our friends and get some go prost. We don't talk about our our workouts as we talk about them as episodes and we hired this really really amazing film team, and so we take all the experience that Hollywood and television. Television have created in the United States and we apply that skill in that art to capturing the whole experience of being out on the water, so we have four cameras. We have a team that is mixing and editing that you know. The most important part of this are two things number one is the rhythm, and so you never lose that rhythm and the instructor. Who's WHO's out. Out there with you is encouraging you to be in rhythm with everybody, and it's very very easy to follow like you do it instantly, even people who've never done it before within like two or three strokes there in the right rhythm, and then the other part is that emotional connection and two things contribute a lot to that one is music, so we have an amazing library of. Of Music and the other is making sure that when you're filming, you captured not just the rhythm, and the experience of being outside, and and the you know the environment of being out on the water, but also the eyes of the instructor is are the window to the soul, and it's it sounds trite, but it's. It's unbelievably true like you have to see. People's facing to be able. Able to read what's in there is and it, it's that experience being able to move your whole body in the same rhythm, AC- instructor and also connect with them. Because you feel what they're feeling, you know they're out on the water and they're excited about what they're doing. They're you know they're training for the US national team and they're sharing their passion for sport that they love. Love more than anything else, and it's really it is genuinely inspiring, and we thought just a crazy response from consumers, which is really encouraging, and

Washington's NFL Team to Change Name After 87 Years
"Colorado's Morning news. Well, they don't know what their new name will be yet, but the NFL team in Washington no longer known as the red skins, the team is officially retiring the nick name and logo After major public pressure from fans and sponsors, Team owner Dan Schneider says the replacement will be announced in the coming weeks. So what do Native Americans think about the change? Let's get into that with Native Ways. Federation executive Director Carly Bad Heart Bull Goodman Me and Carly and thanks for joining us. Good morning. Thank you for having me. We should mention your group is focused on supporting Native American activism and education. So were you folks pushing for this name change? Absolutely are the members in our organization have been part of the movement for the native for this for this change in our native communities have have many folks and Leadership positions many native youth and particular native women across the country for decades now, Carly I'm curious, because I I think that you tell me it's more important what you think that it's the Redskins as a descriptive if they were the Washington If you want to, say native Americans, or even the Washington Indians, which we can talk more about that that would be a want to say, less offensive. It's the descriptive. It's like a majority visit. Not now, That's the biggest thing. It's not so much if they're honoring them. It's the fact that no, you don't use that term. The issue is that our people have been saying for again for decades that the name doesn't on arrest that term. Andi, I would add that There are other teams. There are other names, including some of the names that you lifted that were also were also not in favor of the issue is when you have a community that has been saying for for generations for decades that we are not honored by the use of these names that you need to listen. You need to listen when our community is saying that this is not representative of who we are. When you come from a community that is Is eatin a history of lack of representation of misrepresentation. It is really important to listen to us and to you hear us when we say that it's important for us, and it's important for our kids that Any representation that is out there in the media is adequate, not only adequate, but is also a celebrating who we are not Ah, stereo type, not You know, I'm misrepresentation or, you know, not making fun of who we are. Let's go through some of those names. The Atlanta Braves say they're not going to change their team moniker. Chicago Blackhawks. Kansas City Chiefs Cleveland Indians should they all change. You know? Yes. Honestly, I mean, I mean that, as far as I know, you know the Redskin Sorry. I hate even using that term. I shouldn't use that term. I should not even be saying that name. They haven't gone public with any information on what their new name with their new local will be accepted, say that they hope to honor native people and the military and so it's really important that we're having this further conversation. Because again, even though the Washington team is talking about changing the name, there's so much work yet to be done both with their name and with these other teams that you that you mentioned the remains concerning these communities about about what this means about the The history of Blanding in a way that that is said to honor native people. Even after community members leaders Jaime Time again have said that these names do not honor us. So we're hopeful that that you know a new name. A new logo with the national team will not continue this native imagery or thing or themes. We're hopeful that the team as well as these other teams will listen to native communities come back and talk to us. We have been saying for years on DH will come up with new branding altogether. You know, it's time to do the right thing. Otherwise, at some point, honestly, they're gonna have to do it all over again. That the you know, make the effort now and any abuse and this perpetuation He's racist stereotypes. Once it for all against

And Angel what's your connection with Paraguay myself and my family lived in Paraguay between the year two thousand and five thousand fifteen well. You're going to be back this year if we weren't locked down as article. Yes, that is true. We had one week plan to go there and then we were unable to do that, so we're looking forward to rescheduling that excellent. And why should someone go to Paraguay? There's a beauty in Paraguay the people there. They definitely stand up to me into my family. We were received by the Paraguayan people when we moved there. So we were able to just be a part of a community when we were without family, so it was easy. the culture there is very laid back. The stressors are not the same as anything here in the United States different culture different life in a way, there's not a lot of pressure, and that's something that you can see in the people and see how they kind of take on their day. Another great thing about well. Two of the great things about Paraguay are a there's a variety of geographic zones. There are desert's. There are rainforest. There are waterfalls. There are huge rivers caves mountains. I mean it's loaded with a lot of that as well as many cultures Paraguay. Heavy history in the nineteen hundreds where? Wars going on around the world. This was a place of refuge, so many cultures came. So you have a the German culture? You Have Mennonite? You have Japanese you have so many cultures that are found in different pockets within the nation of Paraguay also nation. Paraguay size apparently is about the same size as California almost about the same sheep. Population it's heavily different, there's only. Eleven million Paraguayans in Paraguay. Okay, it's very unique, and it's also in the center of South. America's called the heart of South America beautiful placement very hot, one of. The, only South American country nut to be on the ocean. I think they share that title with Bolivia. Bolivia SHERP. You're right regardless of that. Caraway's full of water so the word. Paraguay means land of water. I did not know that okay. It's of shape out what means. Umbrella. Over there in Paraguay, you'd look up the sky and the clouds will be moving. The wind will get a little cooler, and you could tell it be raining. You can totally just tune into nature in Paraguay. Excellent and what kind of itinerary are you going to recommend for traveller who spending a week to two weeks there? There's a lot of Paraguayan culture in needs so I would hope that whoever would wanNA travel to pair would grasp some of it and one way to do. It is to definitely check out a soccer game. We'll see if that can fall any itinerary, it would be best if it's a national team. Versus maybe Argentina Brazil, some big name team go to be just shocked and impressed by the unification of the fence for this sport, so I would definitely recommend that I would also send an individual to so land in Asuncion from. Uh, whether you stay there not as a fairly good sized city it. There's a lot to see. I would. Urge the individual to travel to see that the estee which is totally on the other side of the country. It is about maybe five hour drive, and that's the city of the East so I'm assuming that it's in east. Molested, the reason why they go to see less because that's where Brazil and Argentina meet, and that's where Iguazu falls. Okay, the most water in the world is kind of collected there while there. You can also venture to eat thi- Boo Damn I think in China. They have the biggest with the most cement okay debut. Dam is the biggest down with the most water. It's an amazing sight. Both those sites are amazing sights from that location, so you'd probably do Asuncion a day. One of those days traveling to stay there a day or two from there might return back would be through in God. And God Nazione is one of the newest cities there. It's definitely old, but this is a city that has been more productive in regards to the population. It has really done a great job with the scenery. It's alongside the river bottom. I believe it is. And its neighbors of the city of Argentina on forget the name. Just looks beautiful, and it's just a new city. Buildings are all new the people there? They biologists kind of move there. So that's just a great creation. as He. As you venture from that city, you should go through the Jesuit Ruins, I forget the name of the city that you kind of have to go through that they're the ruins. There are pretty impressive. There's about maybe three to five locations. One can choose from along certain route. It's an amazing sight. You see the history. There's abuse obviously that you're going to be told in regards to. Things were built maintained and then removed. There's just a lot of history and from there you will then venture back to your stay in essence you,

It's it's really a bridge between the end of the wounded done era in college basketball in the NBA and what had existed which was really limited options for an elite high school player to do anything but go to college basketball. They put this program place. Two years ago and they started off with players they fell would be first. Round picks were highly regarded coming out of high school. One hundred twenty five thousand dollars a year would be assigned to League team and then you would enter the following years draft. They could not get anybody in that. I really year year and a half to commit to that program. A couple reasons. I think even more than the money agents and those who would advise high school players advised against the idea of going to the G. League where it seven. Let's say eighteen years old. You're going to be playing against grown men in there who played college who played overseas who've been in the NBA back and forth maybe mid twenties late twenties and they would hurt your intentionally hurt your draft stock where you be physically overmatched. It is a difficult lifestyle especially for young person. It's not charter. Flights it's not four seasons and Ritz. Carlton's it's the southwest flight connecting it midway Chicago to get the Iowa City. Adam silver was very moved by the fact that Lamelo Ball in R J Hampton to the top players in this two thousand twenty draft when to Australia next year take my talents to the NBA. Laura Hawks next year I will be going overseas to play an Australian basketball even with the New Zealand. Breaking choke deals in that five hundred thousand dollar a year range and there was not really an option for them. Here there are things we should be doing differently. So that for an American player who decides college isn't for me and I want to spend fulltime devoted to the game of basketball. That's my best chance to be in the NBA. There should be an alternative opportunity in the US spurred silver to push ref- Abderrahim. Who is the president of the G. League she and Rod Strickland Former all-star Mba guard who also works for the G. League in the NBA as part of this program? They've been out in the field. They've been out talking the families players and coaches and they certainly explained to Adam silver. We've got to change this program. So they updated this program specifically for players like Jalen Green. What exactly does it look like now. This is essentially a select team that will be comprised of the players coming out of high school and then veteran players who might otherwise be in the G. League who would get paid comparable salary to come play here. Play a mentor. Ship role to these players. Perhaps players on the back end of their career might like to who might have an I- already on coaching or working in a fraud office will working for the League and also realize that. There's going to be a great deal of scouting attention paid to this group of players. Nba and that. This might not be a bad place for them to still be seen as viable players right now. So that's the makeup of a roster. The coaches will be coaches that people have heard of with NBA coaching experience. Some of them former head coaches and they'll play a schedule that will include G. League teams but not a fulltime jelly schedule. So they'll play perhaps exhibitions against G. League teams. They might play national teams. Who might be touring from different countries? Different parts of the year. I was told they might go to Australia. Where there's an NBA Academy maybe play some Exhibition Games? There and stay there for awhile and train and move around and now the program became more appealing for the top level player. And you've seen now if you players make that leap when you say. It's more appealing in the financial. Incentives are better. How much better we talking? Well Jalen Greens deal with the G. League is around. Five hundred thousand dollars that includes incentives. I'm told that there's a base salary and then there's incentives for essentially just completing. Maybe it's a community service program or a life skills program things that are part of it that they disincentivize financially now. Every player is not going to get five hundred thousand dollars. Jalen green was a number one player in his class. And if you listen to John Devonian Mike. Schmitz are dropping analysts. And I listen to those guys. They tell me that he would have competed to be the number one. Pick in this coming draft and right now he's you know projected to be that in the two thousand twenty one draft so there was. I think a great credibility for the NBA The G. League to get a player that caliber come into this program that he might be a little bit of a Pied Piper for others but they're not going to pay all these guys five hundred thousand some of them the pay more than the one twenty five but they're really negotiating that and remember that. Those players inside endorsement deals. If there's somebody who wants to pay them to wear shoes jailing green again is is a player who see your companies have great interested Not all the players are going to get big endorsement deals and then there is a component that they will go back. There's a partnership with Arizona State and with the NBA. And you could go back and get your degree hate for by the League later on at some point and so those are the benefits of this for players who decide. They don't want to go to college or meetings. In some instances where players become eligible and can't go play college basketball. You mentioned that players. Who Do this can also get endorsement deals? Which at the same time this is happening the NC Double A. Just came out and said were exploring the idea of letting our college players also have endorsements with of course many caveats and limitations this being the NCW TC. All of this is being connected while the shaves but exploring for quite a long time. They always seem to sort of stay in exploration mode. And when you start to dig down into the fine print of what they talk about doing. It isn't what maybe the headline was of of trust. Release or a report about it. I will say this being a part of the. Nba's thinking was that they were reacting. I think a little bit to the Condoleeza Rice commission slash report which a couple years ago essentially said the NBA should do away with one and done. We must separate the college track from the professional track by ending one and done the NCAA stance was that the players who do not want to be in college. There should be an avenue for them to bypass college and that we should take them in here if they don't want be here and so the NCAA on one level has encouraged this of the NBA. Now part of the problem is the NBA and the Players Association. They have not been able to agree on the terms of ending one and done we call on the NBA and the N. Bpa power here to once again make eighteen year old eligible for the NBA draft so that high school players who were drafted may proceed directly to the NBA in theory. Both of them both sides the union. The League would like to end one and done. There was a sense that that this would have gotten done last year. But there are terms of an agreement that they can't come to to end it. And this may be shelved now all the way until the next collective bargaining agreement two thousand twenty four twenty five so for the NCAA right now like this is what they asked for and whether or not they loosen the ability for players to earn money in college or off lightness or however that happens then. I think that will impact this. But let's I still think there's going to be a lot of players who would rather go to college because by the way meaner if you WANNA get paid. There are plenty of places in college basketball that you can go and make money equivalent to what the Julius paying. And that's that's just a fact you're referring of course to the fact that it's an open secret that college kids get paid under the table. Me Knock. I've broken a few stories along the way. I don't think I'M BREAKING MATT. One of your with you right now.

Every young athletes experience every like i said myself when i was eighteen when i went to chelsea land lie not a lotta people notice but i i was going through lot of shit at that time because i was in playing for chelsea and if my mind though like at a neck light i never thought like because mentally being shaw shaw.

"But man, I don't know how interesting that is for the listeners surprise of all surprises were both predicting Columbia wins the Copa America. There you go. I I've been on a very bad role in terms of predicting waiters. I think the last two times, I was on your stoppage-time. I predicted very poorly, so, you know, hopefully, I'm wrong because I think if I am wrong that would mean Brazil mixed the final then I have to believe that if Brazil makes a final in Brazil that there has to be some fans support that I think fans would rally and be like okay now we're the final pretended like this is a big deal. And you know, it's funny, I just think that there was a thing, where like Uruguay has urging tina's number much like Columbia is like kind of has resulted number. Right. So I think that I would hope I don't think it's I don't think it's possible because of high predicted it, but it would be fantastic, if before the scope America run out the Brazil played argentino both these teams really need it and really don't need because one of them's gonna lose, and then that's going to be just like, devastating. I think that both the teams need just like like a third fourth place match just like a, a final, that isn't the final, you know, I'm sort of release of the tension. I think both of them just like proven to, like, at least to their home fans that they're like, they, you know that they have what it takes because I think that both Brazilian and Argentine advance or just looking at their national teams and just not feeling the blood, you know, they're, they're not playing with the blood next. The blood that was going to be my question to you. Fully bay in a world where Brazil and Argentina, both make it to the final is that something you're just like you just dread because it's just like a God, the stress is terrible or you like let's go the biggest of all big finals. It's gonna be a bloodbath. And hopefully, we would I I don't think I dreaded this time. I think I would've dreaded it in the in the world. Yeah. In World Cup, two thousand fourteen where think Argentina had the way better side than Brazil did. I would've ended as much in eighteenth Brazilian too much better than our Tino. But and now, I don't think any of the sides are like Brazil's strengths are. You know, not Argentina strengths. I don't they don't really match up that well I dunno. I like I'm not another. I don't fear there. But also, that's because just like I don't think Brazil has as much to lose as other sides have ethic. It's when you have a lot to lose that Argentina is the team you do not wanna play. Well fair enough. So if you're just dying to get, get going on this Copa America, which I certainly am the first game opens Friday, June fourteenth and it's Brazil against Bolivia that should be I mean, that should be a nice easing in start for you fully pay. I assume hopefully, hopefully and then we then we move onto game Saturday to game Sunday. It's gonna be a raucous ride, and I'm sure we'll do some another episode. Maybe after the Copa America is over. Reflecting back on it. I don't think we'll do an episode during but I think after it's over will maybe do a recap of the Copa America. Our thoughts on it. But, but Philippi, this was always a fantastic pleasure to be able to talk the part of the beautiful game. You know, the very best, which is Brazil, South America, and all the, the dirty and wonderful wonder that is the Copa America. It's you know, South American players make name for themselves. Just not the way that it goes down in Europe. It's a different kind of, of name making process. Fair enough. Well, I, I look forward to having you back on the show again soon.

"And I think without him as that kind of talismanic figure I agree that the Copa America kind of suits Chile, but I don't think they have it in them. I think they're kind of an old group, and that they're kind of past they've kind of past their prime in this, and I think it's a lot of these teams are in transition and chilies the team that should be in transition, but hasn't really started transitioning yet. And I don't I don't see it going well for them. What are? Do you think? Yeah. I think you make a all very good points. This is I think Chile has a of the teams that could win this. I think has the most approve having sat out of the World Cup to Peru. I think as a huge disappointment for, for Chile for sure. I think she was well, the in recent years would have Chile as third power in South America, which was something that they couldn't they kinda, I think it was rightfully so. But since then not only did they not qualified. They haven't really changed the formula all that much. But, you know, I still think that the doll is the mascot of Copa America. I think whenever you think about cope America, you gotta think about players like Vidal, and this is like this is their, their thing. So I think that a team that starts that has adult who is in Barcelona who is starting his finisher of matches. It is a strong you know, kind of rock to, to stand on. I do think that Sanchez is really not enough. Very impressive hasn't had an impressive year and no one else really has a lot of players like you know who were kind of protagonist in, in South America World Cup like Vargas. Not even on the the the roster. They still have the likes of Gary metal on ease law and Beausejour as I mentioned. So, you know, the same suspect, all they're, they're the only thing now that they're all lot older and a lot less impressive. So I do think that this group has enough wiggle room for for Chile to make it out because they're just tough there chilly still high. I, I do think that they still have the tough mentality that, that it takes in order to be successful in the Copa America. But I think that the, the, the this lion is getting a little old of the teeth aren't there anymore. Yeah. I agree with you. I. Like that. The teeth aren't this out there in the line, although in Vidal he still has the teeth. He's still got the except all. But dole on his own should just be a team. Over the dollar should just like construct, his kind of secession of chili and Bill team just like really dangerous looking players and he's he's he's sporting an excellent mohawk these days. I mean he's just looking more terrifying than ever so that counts for something counts for something. You know when you look at the other three teams in this group.
"national team" Discussed on Stoppage Time: Champions League
"But yeah, I mean, I think I think Peru is the maybe the more sound choice, but I dunno I'm feeling a spicy Venezuela. And they're having obviously, so many of their own issues that maybe this is the kind of thing that, like unites team and they make a run. You never know but I'm going to say Venezuela, second Peru third group, our group, B Orgeon Tina, the true nemesis of the world, Colombia Paraguay, and Qatar. So, of course, if you don't know Copa America invites to non South American teams and Qatar being one of them Japan, being the other in group c so groupie Argentina Colombia, Paraguay could tar. I would assume Argentina is the is the favourite but. Columbia, always make things difficult. How do you how do you see groupie going? I think this is a typical argentino group of death again if, if there is such a thing in the Copa America. I, I think you have to put you don't have to put our tina's favourite, but I think that. As all continue to be bully bullish on messy. Despite every kind of situation proving that that's not good idea, a when it comes to the national team in messy, but you know, he did have, I think, as I was, you know. Tooting about when I thought Celona was for sure gonna take the, the lead off of over pool. Wrongfully messy has had a stellar season fantastic season. And I don't think there's anyone out there on any of the teams that is anywhere near messy in terms of performance this year. So it's really open. And I think messy is the one player of the most. You know, the access to grind when it comes to cope America, I just remembered distinctly I think it was last one where it should allay one penalties where he made his penalty. And then, you know, the rest of kids weren't as fortunate ads, you saw the look in his eye when his is that to me, spelled like I am surrounded by idiots like I do everything. And no one here can follow up. Deliver at the same level as I'm living. So I think that the I think the opportunities wide open for for him to be the star scope America's. Okay. I don't really see anyone stepping up. And but, you know, I think Argentina is strongly in transition more. So I think there's, there's always that gap of, you know, are, you know how to sunset the people who are probably not gonna see another ruled Koper not gonna definitely gonna to World Cups and how to usher in those who have never seen a World Cup. Right. I think those are two extremes and Argentina is a little bit more on the stretched outside of that versus Brazil words like, well, a little bit more the middle or sort of still couple people have seen a lot of World Cup will probably be at the next one in a couple of people who are this benched, I think a little bit towards the little bit more towards the center Argentina's a little bit more stretched out NS think that's a little bit trickier, especially the defense Argentina's been struggling with defense ever since Arnold the times of ya'll. In Baltar Samuel ward. That was a tough defense to watch. I actually think I mean, I think it's going to be Argentina. And I think it's going to be Columbia. I'm not sure what the order is, I think Columba's in very side. Fucking Garcia apart. I think that I'm very I think HAMAs is a player that has magic with Colombia, I think, Quadra toe has that magic with I think that this is one thing that does have is the players to jive or connects and perform when they put on Columbia jersey in ways of don't necessarily perform off on the club level. I think that, that would make a difference America. How do you what do you make of Paraguay? Where are they at right now? I think the more the I think, has a lot more tradition right now than they do have depth. I think a lot of people when the payer while in South America and they, they think about her competitive, they're going back to those rookie Santa Cruz days, which are, you know, awhile fan. Yeah. Long since over impaired. Why has it made the World Cup since Ronchi Santa Cruz days? And so it's, it's you gotta if you're gonna be like, if.

"But I really think that, you know, result, I I, I don't think that the challenge comes at this stage yet. Peru is a side that, you know, we saw the World Cup held its own Guerrero is passed the whole doping ban, you know, drama that almost kept out of the World Cup and we know he's very important, and he's been doing fantastic for in the Brazilian league for Internacional. And so I, I think Peru will make it you know, I think in second, you could even go a little bit further. I think they're a very dangerous side, and they have the grit and they're there. I think the side that you cannot underestimate. You cannot turn off on, I agree. I think Brazil, I do think they're a little bit in flux. I think you know, as we'll see across the board. Fortunately, for maybe for everybody, I feel like everyone's a little bit of a transition. So there's no. I don't feel like any like standout runaway favourite. I do Brasil you're at home. Home. You have some extremely talented players, not that this is an easy group by any means. But you kind of have to finish it. I, I think that they are going to finish it. I, I agree that Bolivia finished in last, and I'm a real tossup between Peru and Venezuela like you. I was thrilled with Peru at last year's World Cup except for the fact that they didn't win any games. They played Peru. They play well that's not good. That's not a good thing to be classic. They played over three teams every essentially thirteen per group. Qualifying all you have to do is not lose Bolivia, and you're good shake. I agree. I do agree that, that is in their favor. Peru played, so well pellagra rare is there you got like far fine. You got a lot of very dynamic players who played played so courageously but they also just didn't have that finishing touch. I was the big thing during the World Cup. They couldn't put the ball in the net. They would have such great build up playing just skyrocket, or something along those lines. And they just they would let game slip out of their hands and Venezuela, not that I get to see them play that often. But they've got a lot of these young players who are thriving in MLS not that MLS by any means a standout, standout league. But you've got some players who are really making waves here in the United States, and I kind of wonder if maybe they don't have a little bit of psychological grit. To them where they just who thinks of themselves as the winner more. And I personally I'm gonna I'm gonna finish I think, Venezuela, or going to top Peru in some sort of gritty battle. And I think Peru, we're going to finish in third place just because of mentality issues. Interesting. I didn't notice this. Well had a lot of players. I think it's going to be an interesting matchup, like the kind of what I think, once, maybe once and for all, you know, kind of positioning MLS as like a league that helps you understand what level this team is coming in the level this team is at right. I think that right now it's a little bit of a mystery where you don't really know you know, if a player plays it the Seattle Sounders. What does that mean of compared to player who plays at Guangzhou ever granted China, or if they play in fine Ord another hole at a at least be understand, and position to MLS in terms of like are there is the league progressing, or not, because I think Peru has a lot of you know, either like Peruvian like league or South America teams. And so, you know, maybe less, I think I'm going be making strides and Neo catching..

"You have liked to see Lucas speed one called up in neymars place, instead of Willian, I think Lucas could be that player said that would be like this is my chance to shine. I we've spoken about this in the past back when neymar was an under Brazil's under twenty team. He was the third best player there. It was Lucas arguably the best player Oscar, you know, somewhere in China and they was like a like a flashy third. And so, you know, Thakur is a sport that just like some different kind of growth curves that are very different than name are naturally, outpaced, all of these still think that he's strides ahead of either of them to fight right now. I think Lucas has, you know. You know, I think he has kind of a, a point to prove to, to Brazil to taught him to himself, right? Because again like he had an amazing season at him. But I think he's moved to Tottenham was a punting from his G right tissue, like we don't need anymore. Go somewhere else. I'm sure. Yeah. I'm sure that felt like a step down to him when he went PS g to taught them, what now obviously pretty happy made the final and was a star along the way. But yeah, absolutely. I would have liked to see him. I think given the season he's had certainly deserving. Who I mean I feel like this is been. They're kind of raging debate since last World Cup who's your striker that you go to Gabrielle Zeus, or Roberto for me. No. So this is a tricky one, because I think if the last match played against Qatar, which started off really well, and then just ended kitchen started like started messing with the lineup. It just fizzled out. I did not I was a little concerned about which is going to do because. I think it's not even either of those, it's going to be Charlson interested in because he's been having a great Brazil run every time you call them up he delivers and he started Richardson center. He's had J sues on the right and name are the left ending switched. The name our went out, and he put an Everton who's probably one of the promising players in the Brazilian, but he didn't play very well against Qatar. Just never good sign. And so I'm a little worried about trying to play. Jay Seuss on the wings. And you know Jesus was, you know, very solicitous in the last World Cup playing the positions that you told him to play. But you know, not really, I don't know. I don't think just played the way he would have liked to. I think he's doing it again. So I actually think he's going to start with Jews Richarson and I don't know. I just point probably William. And. Because coaching is gonna play mid so that's, that's that's where he's going. And then he'll probably take out Richarson put in Bobby, who you know injury saw. And, you know, I think it's I think, Bobby is the odd men out in the Liverpool. You know, starting lineup of strikers. And so also, not a lot of faith in him, just point. So I don't know this not impressive not impressed. How much do you hope to see? I mean, that'd be very interesting, if we're Charleston starts, especially kind of in that. Yes. Central striking role. I mean so that's young player getting experience how much how much are you looking to the future saying, yeah, I wanna see players like Richarson and Dovid net is getting playtime. You know let's start building towards the next World Cup versus playing the more experienced guys now. Yeah, I think that's the right direction. Unfortunately, I think there's a couple things go against it. Which is again, I don't think the Copa America is co America's not the cradle. The future generation, this is not a I think more often than not the Copa America. Unlike the euro. Yeah. The euro is where like Latin American teams. Go get go. Pick your unfinished business. It's like after the World Cup. Everyone's kinda like some of them are down. Sometimes, you You know know. it's been awhile since Aleta American team has one World Cup. But, you know, they just go to cope America to just like Duke it out with each other versus. I think the euro is where like.

"The Copa America that, you know, it's not like hosting the World Cup. It certainly have a pressure. And if after the World Cup performance. And if you don't win this one. Yeah, I could see him easily getting getting the axe. I agree with you. We were so high on Brazil before the World Cup started in two thousand eighteen and you're right in the sense that they obviously, they lost. And it wasn't like it certainly wasn't like two thousand fourteen but they never really liked dazzled along the way. And so here we are, you know. Soon thereafter, and it's hard to be like, you know, you kind of feel a little burned in a way where you're like well is this is this team better than it was two years ago or a year ago? I don't I don't think so. Obviously name are is out, you know, that could be a whole topic unto himself. But we're going to kind of leave neymar loan. He's got. Clearly, some legal issues pending, which are not really, we're not really equipped to talk about wouldn't want to trivialize those kind of issues. I think you know that aside his head space at G hasn't quite been right. I mean he's facing a series of bands for various outbursts, and things like that. And I think he's just kind of gotten a little bit away from the joy of the game, but he's not going to be playing this in this Copa America. So we can kind of put him to the side, and I almost wonder if that's a little bit in Brazil's favor. We can get into that. But you look at their other stars right? Philippe coutinho. He's, you know, we talked about that on our Barcelona Champions League episode where it's like his, he's not thriving. Particularly will Brazil be an opportunity for him to reinvigorate himself. I hope so I think he's an amazing player. I'd like to see that you mentioned Roberto, for me. No, obviously just won the Champions League fantastic. He was in. Injured though for a lot of the season. And Gabriel j Zeus just won the Premier League. Good for him. But he was also kind of a secondary figure that season went on. It is. I agree with you. It's a little bit hard to get super hyped on this team. But I'm very curious to see I'll be honest with you when neymar was going into this Copa America. I thought this might actually end kind of poorly for Brazil with neymar out. I think it's an opportunity for other players to step up without that pressure of like I just need to get the ball to neymar, and I think that could actually maybe bring a little life to this to this team. What do you think about that? Yeah. But it's just not a very I don't know. The difference that losing losing a World Cup makes. Suddenly, these kind of a few of the pieces are just a lot less, shiny right now. I think you if categorically for the for the listeners that have been with us for a while they're going to be surprised when I say that I would argue Allison is probably our best player, right now both technique wise, but also like head space and kind of winning mentality. And you know, like with many other sports and other teams winning mentality is important. And no nowhere. Is that more important than Brazil? I think one of the things that resent sock a lot about when it comes to prison. Soccer is the world co the next World Cup starts the minute after this World Cup ends. Right. So we are only nine hundred days away from the next Cup currently. And I only see Allison as the with the head space, too, with a winning mentality that we wanna have by the time we get there, because Tadic working Alison, great, the only one a few exceptions, Daniel office, sat out for the longest time came back. I I like that. He's a captain. I think he has, like, we need someone to little bit more Grizz grizzly as our captain, to just keep a mostly, you know, kinda younger not very physically imposing team, still very competitive, but, you know, side out and also you know, a less than impressive end for PSG a pretty much, you know, failed to lose because they just couldn't flaunt the leader..

Honestly, I would not, you know, short don't against him. But you know what Barcelona can have them if they want replacement for Tiven, and they can tally and keep him from just United pretty please? But in a good segue here we got. We got Bala telly at Marseille. He's clearly gonna take French league by storm where different player is known to be king. And that's neymar neymars from Brazil. Let's talk about our first topic, which is the state of the Brazil national team post World Cup, two thousand eighteen the rebuild the kind of rebirth, the transition, however you wanna put it. I wanna hear Felipe your. An expert in all things Brazil national team. It's going to segue nicely into our topic on the Copa America. But let's get into how you see this Brazil team shaping up. Are you happy with the direction? They're going, well, first of all, seamless transition from Balata into Brazil very It's I. I. Yes. Incredible. I would say that I am not as bullish on Brazil, not nearly as bullish as I was heading into the World Cup. I think in general, and I think this is a thing that I want to show my hand too early. But I think there's a theme here of, you know, teams in the Copa America that are just coming from, you know, negative results a lot of these teams hiding early bowel outs at the World Cup in. So I think Brazil earlier not coming into World Cup. Brazil just was writing wrote in incredible high. We feel we felt you know, just untouchable. And, you know, I think having lost to Belgium Brazil, you know, Zil bled. And since then, I just think this, this illusion of like the side that you had put together that was, you know, bringing back, you know, Brazil soccer the way it was meant to be it's just became a little too, too unrealistic. And I think that if you now look at Brazil, not only as the club. The team itself. But also like individually, it's just a team of not winners losers but they're not winners. I think if with exception of Liverpool crowd, there are no, they're no, no impressive, winners, this year of soccer, Brazil side, and that's very concerning thing. And so between a less that, you You know, know. I think an honorable bow at Belgium Belgium, but just not a you know, it's just a oh Brazil, I guess, wasn't that captivating. And then just like a season where no Brazilian really made their Mark a not, I don't I don't like where we are. I think Mojo wise. And I don't think she is doing making the right calls. I think as a matter of fact, I think, kitchen is, you know, as typical in Brazilian coach fashion, a little bit on the ropes I if he doesn't win this one, I don't think he'll survive, you got to imagine I mean, Brazil hosting the Copa America that, you know, it's not like hosting the World Cup. It certainly have a pressure. And if after the World Cup performance. And if you don't win this one. Yeah, I could see him.
"national team" Discussed on The GaryVee Audio Experience
"Okay. And the questions everybody watching camera difference within the German American national team. Who do you want next American coach to be of the American national team, the business to be. And help each. How would you when you German? How old were you on the American team. Played. Was seventy eight eighteen. And then I is a twenty. So the biggest difference it is definitely. Education in tactically. Technically, because if I look at this like us us the countries so much bigger than shown me. Right. And I think that you as has amazing athletes, but they just know how to use, you know the speed, the power strength, because I'll say you better than the Germans in general is like concede, you know, sprinters, whatever. There's never winning by the focus so much on technically and tactical work. Actually invested money. The youth coaches and then lied to Dona. They go Saddam on basing kind of and from them. Whereas in the states, I think because it's not the number one sport of the country and then really interested in in debt, and they don't like to be bad in something which now since we didn't make the workup changed. My thing doesn't of investment going on. What about coach coach. So I think have interim coach in the moment. They've Sarah China history in amazing. I've to say, I mean, we drew against Brown's system month before they wanna work upright and eat them. You changed strategy of players, scouting and treatment, and he does a lot more on young players than in the past politics on. Phone number reasons which him have slag off because I came out and said they wouldn't players who already has pasta prime light Germano z because they wanna work for years ago. Some place of less than to start every game and that was wrong. And that happened with the states and the World Cup. So I just hope that the next miniature will be someone who focuses on a us and makes decisions based political base. I think you don't from somebody from the very outside point of view in the sport. But who watches culture very carefully. I think the most interesting thing about US but ball in the long term is to court things. One, it's the just the popularity of the sport is real. Like if you spent time in America fifteen years ago, I never saw a single kid in America where a soccer jersey. It never happened. Now, you see as many kids six to twelve wearing football jerseys. As you do seem them where baseball or outside of bath, basketball football, still, number one, but baseball hockey and proper footballer. Now, hovering around the same popularity number two, the Latino population in the US is so extreme and exploding that. I think the last names will look more like Brazil or Mexico things of that nature in sixteen for twenty years. But the resources are there. It just it's not religion like LeBron's playing basketball, not defense. You know. And so I think that that's interesting to watch over x twenty years. All right. One more question. Hey, so. Ten years in being super. What are you cues culture? Yes, from offense into his autism? Yes. We'll recently featured game initiate ablity. As you and you want to coach when it comes to owning a business in America UK you align yourself with. Rapids associate letting the culture that gigs and scatter the Jamie. And my question is what you want says we've been looking for when you talk to those artists to teach things about these. Yes. So, well, my dear friend here who's known me for a long time. I've always really loved hip hop as my Instagram over the last two years has exploded in parallel Mike Boyd who's always been close to me was freed up to really do strategy for me, and we took approach about eighteen months ago to get very serious about the emerging hip hop artists that we thought in a five to seven year window could become the Drake's or low wains. What would that mean get in the trenches of culture? The question is my thinking about that in a UK lens as well. And it's kind of interesting because maybe you've noticed this, it's probably not probably it's why we're sitting here right now. I've taken the approach in the UK and we're opening up Singapore in February. We're gonna open up Brazil..
