And i remember okay and melissa always say Chrissy would be your friend. Like you and chris Totally hit it off But we didn't go the same went to oakmont. Yeah so when. I went to also when i went to st mary's Chrissy was thinking about applying similar. Melissa reached out to me inside in christie.

And she's my godmother to so now we're god so and people think are related like even my own family on my dad's side we're cousins side so part of the fan. Yeah often i can. You guys confused all the time we know each other pretty well so basically what you're telling me is arranged friendship and then it just happened to work out now. I never thought about it that way but it worked out you know. This arrangement looks good years later. We're still here so it's rare. It happens in the us say jr. but i'm just really happy. We got set up our it. Let's let's get moving into some of our weird. Get to know your guests questions more than just like what's your name as into school. We want to really get to know you wanna find out what is your spirit. Animal mine would be adult thin like they're like playful funds like water agree. You have cell phone energy. I went back and forth on this one by as of recent especially since we're like inside. I think i'm a little kitchen. Because i like to find the sunny spot in my living room and dislike gonna take out your kitten like a like a dog cat. I really like younger. Sister survived. And i think that's just light that makes sense specific. It was good. She showed her work. That's all accounts. Spirit animal now. I'm not sure if you guys follow that closely on social media. But i did post a picture of zach spirit animal. The day and i was delivering a package in their. This huge just garfield size cat at the didn't want to go up to the door and take the package so instead. I took a pitcher Zach i said finally i found your spiritual so i put it on social media so you can see what i was talking about betsy that the cat looked back. It was really fun. Yeah it didn't like it walk because it was too for that but that's that's fine. I think that's why it made me think of you. Somebody keeps feeding it and was true. He's living the life. He's getting fed just delivery after delivery. It's a different kind of question. Spirit animals kind of our goto. We've got some really good answers on that. But this one you have a handful of trail mix you have ten pieces. I did a lot of research this week. And that's about. The average size is about ten pieces. In one handful what is your ratio of peanut raisin and eminem the perfect handful bite me. I really sweet. So i'd have to be half eminem. Cz yes so five pieces them and nego- go three peanuts to combo. Yeah i'm the type of person who leaves all the eminem's roommate go with and nine of an ems in one reason because i'm allergic to peanut. Also allergic yeah. That's my answer twitter. Go this is trail me why even say one raisin like raisins and it changes the texture a little bit you know i would take a bag of 'em's the answer to that. Yeah i think daisy was actually really close to the correct answer. But it's gonna be a distinct answer to this. Yeah you gotta go. It's four peanuts for eminem's in two raisins. Because you have to have the crunch with both the peanuts and eminem's have make sure you have a perfect amount of salt that mixes in with it. And then you had to have the kind of chewy with raisins. that kind of gives it a little fruity zing at the end fruit zinc looking to raise a lot of zine pep. I really thought that one yeah. I don't write it in the notes if i don't have an answer for it. Yeah he only writes down questions that he has a clever answer for got them. All in the satchel ready to go Get to know you guys all right and this is another weird try question. I have a lot of questions about this question. Are you gonna fly drive or take the train. how are you getting where you're gone fly. I agree like flying. Young people don't. But i feel like it means you're going somewhere fun. Yeah i'm definitely flying. I love planes and heights. Does not everyone can agree to that one but it feels like a special occasion. When you're flying when i go. I just had a lot of questions. We're are we going to ask. Flying like oakland was might answer. Always if you have to ask. you can't afford it. Just pick your mode of transportation. I think train would be the most fun. I think that would be the most fun too. Depending on how far it could be like. Oh are going to like paris. I don't think i want to take the train. I think. I wanna take the plane. But i think that one's the most likely to turn into a murder mystery. I think the best both important part in any travel now feel like they don't have to go through security. Feel like i can actually look at the window recognized something other than like but you do have to gerland. Train long-term train i have. They wouldn't true. I just picture of wild west like jumping on a train jumping off my horse. Yeah just you're jumping in with your little. This check you. How does not as thorough but jump on the train with a horse. They're still gonna check. I think he can get more hammered on a train. Though than any of the other ones too i feel. There's gotta be a string car. The altitude cured with the planes yet really only giving you those little tiny airplane byles boost and i think they're going to check you if you're hammered on the plane. They don't like they're going to be upset. You're hammered on a train. They might let you be the conductor. No rules on train. I'm not sure if that's try wanting to be a conductor. Think the question is trying. I don't know anything about train. Travel conduct first job ever. I did run train so toy trains. Or like i weren't johnson cruel pizza company and i worked in the arcade and i actually did run a train so my first job was ever was a conductor. Yeah i pushed a ride. I remember when that happened.

Sure so the giants community fund is the five one three nonprofit of san francisco giants and our flagship program is junior rants. And it's free non-competitive coed baseball and softball for kids and underserved communities and we're all over. We have leagues Across california nevada and oregon and we serve about twenty four thousand kids annually. So yeah prequel program with an awesome program. Now let's go to the end and just see the conclusion but let's talk about the beginning of the junior guys program for the two of you. How all begin to begins yes. Troy likes to call me i the. Oj you are actually started in college. I was studying abroad and My savings account was fast. So i needed a A summer job. Until i was looking at our college job board. And i just happened to come across giants program and I got interviewed and our boss. Shot up to bailey. Woo was like the worst. Starting a new league in citrus heights. You grew up in jersey is like i think you would be a really good fit. You're gonna have this. Boston troy And i came back from sending abroad and started right away and metro roy and we Have newly and it was quite the time. Show let me preferences a little bit too. I had just reference. It's like when you pick what you really So i had just started with sunrise parks and rec so this was the first league i hit actually run and is the first time that we had done it in a while. I think it'd been five or six years since decide to run the programs yoga. Yeah so mainly oh We're just going at this thing blind and we blink. I think we have like three hundred fifty kids or something like that. Something pretty big. I think we almost had four hundred. 'cause i remember our boss was like i did not expect you guys to have this like we ran outta stuff because we didn't have enough for everybody so we're trying to get through this program. Neither of us know what's going on after carrying most of the load for most of the season You let me finish. Daisy got really tired of doing everything. So feel troy's at new shanghai deceit in chinese food all day all day law. So yeah we we made our way through it was it was pretty fun and we definitely learned a lot. How did you feel about the season. So i can was great. I mean choice sat at his desk. Ally might wanna basketball play. Lot of just like standing around Looks good but it did look good. Because i did all the work. So but it was very sexy. won't be. We ran a good league. But this is at the time. Where chrissy and i are also becoming a lot closer Went to blue nami one day and daisy was like so you know. I'm working for the giants this summer. White and you know as giants fan. I think the end goal is always to try to work for the front office. Okay and so. I was immediately interested in. I had a wreck background. I had worked for the city of roseville and so dc said next year. I'm going to be moving to the concord league you should take by slot in citrus heights yet down. So the next spring. I went to oracle park and interviewed with baileigh erode and me the job on the spot because i'm reminded of daisy daisy. Two point. oh she's like at your hired will worked for. Yeah i think. I butchered that interview And so then. I was a scientists suggest heights. wasn't add blind this time. No but here i am. I like have that a student mentality. i'm like suit home working for the summer. And i walk into the office in troy dishes reclined in his seat. Like this nolan crissier just bright eyed and a. it took me like a couple of times with troy. I think jake was in office to to figure out their violent para got it. The next time. I came into the office. I walk in and like we. We're betting on to see how many minutes early you would be. Gotta who won one. Always say you're going to be like two minutes late. we're up early. Bet it we we had. I think he might have the file somewhere where we kept it so vile now if he did know But you know like the easy. I was an independent worker with no. We learned a lot of responsibility of like how to handle things on her own side of do like three jobs yourself. Essentially so to be fair. I mean a lot of name shaming on right here because it was a free program that we ran your giants also. I don't think i'm not sure if you because mentioned is a free program that these parks and recreations. They put together. So i couldn't usually a lot a lot of my hours because of my boss. Tgi todd gordon. He we had so many other. You know paid programs. That actually made the district money that i had to put a lot of my hours outweigh. So the hours. I was allotted. Wasn't that many. So i did my best to help the ladies out but they both were stars. I can see by the junior. Giants kept him on this. Kick nicest thing you know. He wasn't looking directly at you. My brother wink. Roy wasn't all that bad. I mean on saturday game days. He would bring a lake the hash browns from mcdonalds breakfasts remember like more shoes. I mean really. I know. I don't really mcdonald's but it was good and The last day of my season we hit the the the storage unit and she popped out and we made her do inventories What is it. Like to work for the giants. Now i know Daisy just does it you know in the summertime but chrissy can you speak to how it is working for a professional organization warrant shirt so i always say you know people ask what like what the giants i'd say working. I work with the best people in the business. And that's definitely the best part of the job. I mean yes. It's very cool to have offices at oracle park but Like our whole team work long hours but they make it fun and we're in the fun business and It's cool that our work goes towards the community rather than you know the players on the field which they're they're great but It's more mission based so that's so cool But there's there's perks. Thera- perks turks. So i gotta get stories yet. Yeah so my part of my role is coordinating in pre covid coordinating events for the kids to come to the ballpark And one event is the buster posey's glove giveaway and posey gives out thousand gloves to giants and we were running short on time one year. I think this is a twenty nineteen thousand nineteen an r. m. c. fell through and the before i call beijing like hey So do you want to. 'em sierra at the ballpark is like her. Not really thinking bunch of it slash what we were doing and so i get their crissy's like i made your script like here. It is remember reading through in a mike. I'm asking questions. I'm john clyde lewis so all the kids are going to be sitting in the stems and like put you on top of the talk of the doug doubt and like. Here's the mike at gosawx at like. She had the whole sound system of the ballpark on her face. And we have a video of it will have to send it to you. The whole crowd at thousand complicates screaming at the top of their lungs during a t shirt. Toss yeah it was it was it was. It's my daisy yes month. So what is the coolest thing you think you guys have. Been a part of being with the giants. 'cause i know as a commissioner while you guys really were but as the having the title didn't go on the field for a couple games Be rod as as you guys like. The caller has hooked up with some pretty awesome tickets where we sat a sweet one time for a cubs game and then she got us playoff tickets for cubs game and she's done some pretty cool things for me just being friends with her. But what are the. Somethings working for the giants that you guys have done. That's the most memorable So my intern year. So right after. I was embassador insights. I got pulled up into the front office as an intern. And i think this was like two months into my internship. I get a text about ten days before big play ball fundraiser. That we have every year and it was are awesome executive director sue. She said hey you know. We talked with our team. Would you be cool to share. You know your indices and report video that you need of citrus heights at the luncheon chelsea great and she's like okay Buster posey's going to introduce you. Is that cool. What what rewind dance with lucille. That's part of your job and so i said sure. Of course it's kind of like you know. I didn't know what to expect. It's a thousand guests. It's like all of the the giants for office really all the players. The coaches and you know senior in college up on stage next buster. Posey he says name twice was great day. And then i got to talk about such as aids and show the video of all of the kiddos from that summer that i dislike filmed on my iphone that year. So that is by far one of the coolest as my life and it all you know as part of the job but I always go back to that day. Have anything Mine's not as cool But one year Were short on fifty fifty raffles sellers so the giants jez raffle at the game and half the proceeds go to the fan. And i got to work actually playoff game versus the cubs and i got to talk to this group and they have flown out from chicago. And i basically like trick them into buying tickets for Fifty fifty raffles her life. It's for a good cause as they're Paying me someone hits like care. I wanna see was a grand slam if not a big to for the giants gave them the league in day. Were just so upset with me. That story especially here. Rub it in the the playoff game. I went to was the one game the cups loss to the giants that year which happened to be two thousand sixteen when the cubs actually went on won the world series so it was a pretty good year even though i went to a lost. They're in the playoffs. That comes to you of the giants zero percent negative negative forty percent after. You guys aren't booed him back. I do whisper. I mean. I didn't wear my world series champion dodger shirt at respect but i did wear the normal amount of dodger stuff that where we should've worn out it for now so we giant. Have you guys run into through your time. I don't know how often you is there. One giant that really sticks out as like the nicest coolest. I know there are some of them that are really into the junior giants funding than some of that aren't as involved. Which one would you say is your favorite. I ran into a one hundred percents before it was really nice. Said hi To almost new the scooter. But no you help. That wasn't event though with he date stephanie. On four house so they do I also see matt. Cain he's really nice to got introduced him at a commissioners event on we chatted for bit. I think that one. It wasn't an early as he might have been. I think actually yes cremate. Yeah actually no it was. Yeah it would have been there the one right after One of my favorite players. I've met. He's no longer with the giants but conley he came and was a special guest. That are willie. mccovey luncheon. And i i was helping out bailey. That's bailey's event and i had to go downstairs hop into nick's car helping park because he didn't know how lot a you know work because it usually park in the third slot men help block them back up to the event and he was super nice. Saudi let me my hunting gear like For some reason that always sticks out of my head he was very down to earth and cool guy but also gabe kaplan. I know it's not a player but Our new manager is awesome. A he also came to the willie mack About one week into his new job with the diane's an he stayed At that event and met every single family that was in attendance in states like an hour past win. We asked him to and he always you know bend over backwards to help out the giants community fund in him. This coaching staff created like at home home produce videos for the kids during the pandemic and he's helped out a lot. Yeah one last question before we moved to our favorite. Talk about ballpark food How has the covid pandemic really affected the junior giants. Because i know at least when i watch you guys do all the work. It was in person. Yeah the kids had go. There was coaches. They got the different prizes for doing certain things on each of the week health and a snack food or whatever the other ones were. obviously i paid Good attention but how. How is it different this past year. And how's it going to be different in this upcoming year this summer. Yeah that's a great question. So you know march fifteenth. I think was the first day we worked at home. And we our whole team hit the ground running including the regional staff. I mean the regionals were on early last year and we and matter of about four to six weeks took her entire program into the virtual setting and launch junior giants at home and so they were zoomed practices run by our investor team and they met twice a week. We did presley four seasons so sixteen weeks total of programming and We reached about twelve thousand kids in four different countries. Twenty four states Those coaching videos came in handy. Like coach enacting was dieting on her bed at her place with a sock ball on teaching. The kids like drills. They could just do in your own home And it was great to see the kids on the screen and know that they still had a resource through us. Yeah i think at at that time to kids were just so just like thriving for like wanting some sort of movement interaction so it was cool that they got to still have like a team And someone kind of leading them through some activity so that was pretty. They were really excited. Yeah and we were able to keep our you know. We partnered with americorps for the first time last year. And so we we're able to keep ninety ambassador on our team in employees Our whole team worked really hard so this year you know in twenty twenty one will definitely be bringing back junior giants at home or developing a four week spring training That will be virtual or also hoping that we get some kids back on the field if it's safe to do so so it's going to be league by league. They'll have to make the call and they saw no state regulations in what that's looking like that will we're hopeful that with some safety precautions we can get the kids back on the field awesome. That's awesome you can run the program. Virtually instill help out some of those kids. That are looking for something to do at home. I'm looking for anything to do at home. Let you not junior. But you are a little giants. So i think that's like so we're really close. Yeah that'd be part of your. We don't know that word me so pass out videos. i'm in. We do have some recipe videos. Make smoothies for kids. yes so sunday. The rescue smoothies. We won the food. I'm hungry can't say things like that. So we're into quick break and we're gonna come back with food court files right.

Chicken tenders gets is up there. So what are you looking for in a chicken tender. I want to know what the grading curve for. This is so if we can really judge your top three or not for just get a go everywhere else okay. The breading is really important. Oh yeah like how much or how little they put on. I think that's really cooking. I've a lot of burt. Chicken tenders life in. They are the worst about that. I when i when i went to the eighties stadium there were so you feel like i didn't get accurate Call yeah yeah. 'cause there were Temperature and then the chicken itself chicken like the quality of chicken. You can't have like two chewier to ringing in the breading. If it's too hard to buy into kate that it's gotta be a little moist. Good bread on the outside but it needs to be a good amount of chicken in the middle to catch catches be all breading. Yeah is there a preference for anything to dip your chip chicken tenders in beg ranch birth more. I like ranch. My son calls a bomb. He loved dab on that data triplets ranch on everything that i do.

I mean you can't go to oracle park and not get aguirre daily sunday yeah you like staples that much. I've talked to loves the crab sam. I'm not a crab guy. But i think the crab sandwich last semester. Do you like it i did. It was really definitely anything though. I will get whatever. Is the weird thing at the ballpark. That i couldn't get anywhere else. He's like a billy goat. Well oracle park is known for their food. And there's a lot of san francisco staples so if you go in line behind the bleachers and there's like clam chowder and then there's the crops sandwiches and another line and you can stand in any single one Those an an order any of that food you don't have to be in the clam chowder to get the clam chowder because everyone or Craps yeah the Line is always really long but three windows down. You can still get a crappy in. There's usually not align their. Yeah that's a secret it's a it's a hack all the people that listen to our show they're going to be now you Amend what else is good.

Hr time i was like last time office or you there. I was in the office day. Isn't i happened to be there when we got cream sandwiches. I think yeah. They're big on ice cream because usually it's like in the middle of the summer. Yeah what is the best thing they've ever brought in like. Oh you might not have been there in their heyday when they actually i. They weren't as elaborate cream sandwiches. I mean you can't really be. I'm a big ice cream. Cookie weeks scale so yeah. That was really good. I think that's the best one but other than that like the only other like exclusive. Eating experience for employees would be press tiny song game days. If you're working you can go up to press dining and their breakfasts sampling. Great bailey is a huge fan of the bacon bailey. If you're listening we miss the bacon to don't worry a reback soon Have like french toast. So what's your favorite place to eat around oracle park if you're not gonna be eaten inside which you guys probably do more often than not. Because they're in their work in.

Very san francisco but It's an awesome place to hang out The sangria they have great like pokey bowls. Have you eaten the. There's like an is that the new outside places like right in the parking lot there just past the bridge now so they closed at thousand called the yard So it's not that so you have to walk a couple blocks back but have you. Have you ever eaten at the yard before foreclosed high that a couple of tracks right there. Well i think that's all. We got ballpark food. That's plenty. I know we've discussed it a little bit before but we appreciate the insights you know if we ever get to go back to a giants game oracle parker even any place. Anytime soon would be awesome. I'm hoping sometime this year to who's who knows. I don't try to get my hopes up anymore. Absolute all right. Let's take a quick break. We'll get a little weird. We'll come back with you like the sweet taste of mountain dew. Do you like your vodka to be both inexpensive and flavored like melons. Then we got a beverage for you. From the minds of the host of the wildly popular podcast that shares. Its name we bring you the spivey special one part mountain dew three to four parts brunettes watermelon vodka one hundred percent fund. Drink one at your next party or at three. Am playing halo three. Please enjoy responsible. Grand all right. Let's get into pat. I we're going to start with my first question in this. Is the secret question spooky right. You're given super secret. Government clearance obviously in a room with a computer with a search engine. You get one hour. What's the first thing that you search for. What do you want to find out about. The first that came to mind was who assassinated jfk. Whoa that's a good start. It's a good song. I would like snell the conspiracy theories about it here. I don't even know if you could. Google search. This cure for cancer of is not like what if there is like secret davis they do have. Yeah that's like the missing component to the puzzle with a couple of minutes. He got like fifty five minutes left or other things. That's a good first one. I would want to know what really is in area. Fifty one there actually. Is the aliens or anything like that. That's why would start not go to the moon eccentrics about you i think i would start with I'd want to know everything. They found out about mar far because they feel like they're hiding something mars. We can't land rover like we've had like twenty three missions to mars where they either have satellites or something that landed on the planet. And if we're not getting all the pictures why didn't know that they take so long for them to get back like the one that just landed won't come back to earth in for another ten years rain. Yeah so like this sample that the rover just collected is not going to be back till twenty thirty one they won't be able to dissect what's going on. Ovid according teen. Taft will you gals wants to start with your grab bag question. I liked that question as a deep thought. Yeah that's a really good question. okay. I'm gonna go first so we've got inspired by your past episodes in just like on the topic of food ballpark food. So say you're kind of in life or death situation. She said insane. And in order to live you either have to eat a whole bottle of nannies ketchup or mustard. Which one are you choosing. I think that's an easy question for me. I think like we think a little bit differently. I think To have the same. I think we're gonna go catch up. Daga mustard really such a bad. Why hate mustard. So that's probably why. I would go catch up. Maybe i'd chug it down. You know with a little mayo you know just get a little schuylkill Helps the catch. Go occurred but i think ketchups to save is sweeter than mustard. So it's too much sugar. Yeah i would get do you. Patch up what about you chrissy. I didn't know i was going to have to answer this question at Probably catch up. She had thought those safest but thinking about it. I just hate mustard. So i wouldn't go mustard mayo. It's disgusting. Why known would pick may are out of those three no depends the jar size. I guess it depends on. How much mustard ketchup feel like the mayonnaise would have to be the smallest one for that to even be an option. Yeah would have to be like a couple spoonfuls. Even that could eat mayonnaise. Life depended on it. Looks like you've eaten a couple things right. They will alert. That's this energy. Drinking are acid chunk of a spoon. Spoon her yes. Yeah next one all right. You're watching and some wine For somebody else and they pull you into a talent show and you have five seconds to come up with a talent to on this town. Show what is your talent or like. You're the newsman park. A crowd is gathering in anticipation. And they mistake you for part of the cast in your shoved onto stage. I'd probably just start danson. I think it just depends like what kind of amusement park. I'd get the vibe of where i'm at you know it's like a hoedown i might have to see. I mean i might have to go country. you know. Countries smith to check out our talk. I'm on their singing. Country like an opera. Yeah price you gotta do. You gotta do what you gotta do. You know took a really good fake italian. Yeah always have pay let. Let's let's all olive garden. No bread sticks. oh that's earlier breadsticks at all. I think i would try. Stand up. I've just go for it. I don't think you can stand up accommodated. No i probably would to have a couple of sets already written. So i'd probably go with. That's the safest bet. Yeah and if you get booed off since part of the gig. Young giants for him. What would youtube go with. I'd go dancing. Yeah we're both on. Dan even as we just you know yeah. Yeah muscle memory routine from birth. There's no music going gonna start like popping and locking tap dancing. Yeah i can tap dance. Tap dance shoes. That's okay make any you could try. I would get like audience. Participation too late to do the whole bit for the buster. Posey glove giveaway you lucille. Where's lucille lucille. Us freeze dance like a a super elaborate. Like you pretend that you're a magician and you need help from the audience and you just grab like four people and place them in weird spots on the stage and then you just kind of walk off. That's what i do. I saw one of those visited like magician on one of those talent shows and he makes fun of magic. Basically he goes. Is this a picture of you. Hold some in front of him and it's a mere all right so i'm gonna try this. Grab bag thing out I haven't done it very well but this is gonna be elaborate. So you're gonna have to keep with my new pat out all right. So you're in a poor in your atta a bar slash tavern and it's called anchors so you're sitting in this anchor bar and in walk somebody with a treasure map okay. He handed you the map and he also says you're gonna get a boat he goes. You are going to have to go and find this treasure. But you can only bring one person with you and that person has to be one of these flavors of spices. What you have scary. Ginger baby posh. I can't think of the v eight depict take one of the spice girls with you on your treasured. One of the spice girls think little bit before sporty spice sporty. Spice that someone you would take with you. Do you have a reason for that yet. The show your work short. We're your teacher is like students that I would take her. Because i feel like we're going on new venture on a vo like some muscle like get through some stuff so like you come in handy undergo with posh spice because mary to the beckham right so she would have great resources you know. And she seems like an intelligent woman and you know maybe she brings the family along. You only get one person. Okay but you can. You know to shape a phone. She could face time. You know if you're out at sea. Like i'll just go with like she has the resources. Okay i like it zach. I think that's the right pick. I think pasha's the repick. 'cause i think she's the richest of all of them and i think she owns a yacht and i need to get to the church map place. No they gave you a boat. What kind of boat is that. That's the one you have to take. Don't worry about what the boat i wanna know. What kind of boat. It is so treasure hunt boat that you would take with a bunch of pirates but about how far away is it. I would say like three or four leagues like nine miles. Okay you could see it. I'm gonna go scary. And the reason. Why is i think she seen some things and i think if we run running to some pirates or you know some you know wildlife once. We made it to the island that we had to be on. I think that you'd be able to be really good with building shelter in finding food. And i just think did she seems like of the five. The one i'd want to hang out in relate to the most this yet the remember you have to hang out with this person on the on the trip strap. yeah. I think i would want to hang out with pasha. Maybe ginger would be fine or you'd be the most baby now baby doesn't know what's going on. She's like grab some of that. You're in the spice girls now. But i think she had a show or self the most. I think she would try. The hardest at the treasure map get has absolutely. She didn't come from baby like preteen and a heartbeat. Thank you finish this up with grab bag kind of. Take me off your weird questions. All why is it always nana boy band. It's a girl bands absolutely spicer around iconic all right. You're offered a magic potion. Why wouldn't i be the magic potion allows you to live. Five hundred years it also slows down your aging reverse Those down. So it would make the five hundred year like you're hundred age one fifth of the normal rate like opposite jack. Yes okay. yes adam of you. Seen that movie robin williams get before the spice came out before. They're born progress. Do you take the potion. do you wanna live tire. Five hundred. now we'll show you work. Is it love potion number nine or was it just makes me live longer. That's four okay. Girls you answer say no five hundred years is a really long time and everyone i would love to be know tasks are out. Say no i would say yes. Okay hi case you for new families. People heard years so your great great great great grandchildren jerry. Point so you like be in diapers to fifteen ash. We'll know starting now. Oh so. I get all right. Ty bari lived hundred sixty years approximately side be like one sixty one right now is every year is five years hop or i get five hundred more years at five hundred more years. Okay yeah i would probably do it like daisy said. I can find new friends new family. I wouldn't want to. I think it'd be hard now. But i mean i'd just used five years was really like one year to get over everything and then you know i would just move on learned a lot. Just think though if you were born in fifteen hundred you'd have to live a hundred years as someone between eighty and one hundred though. Why probably you don't have to worry about those last years. Usually i'm living to one hundred regardless. Yeah oh you you're gonna make it to five hundred. You're gonna live five hundred years. And the last hundred of them you'd be between the age of eighty and a hundred. That is a lot of candy crush knitting. I don't know if i could crochet that much as a lot of fishing though a lot of fishing most efficient matlock. i'd apple in five. Fifteen for best. Did not not i would not. I wouldn't watch everyone i know. Die and then do it like three more times. And i wouldn't want to be ninety years old for fifty years. That sounds terrible right answer. They're considering their question is a thinker. You don't like those. I like lady antebellum gonna take down. Destiny's child or your work type questions those are those are my speed not like also a listen to that one like i very. Don't think lady as gonna wiz. Who do you think's going to win. Does it show a hundred prefer. Everyone i've asked said this child. But i don't think you understand that there's two grown men playing three kids. He his hands in there too. And then the ladies. But i think the ladies would want to protect the kids that might get them in trouble early in the match. I'm taking two grown men over and the prime though beyond ceos probably a feisty michelle michelle's also precisely in kelly. I don't wanna do the lady in question okay. All right well.

Alex Dickerson: Why the Ball Flies at Oracle Park

"From labra doodles to grow nuts the world of hybrid so today businesses are taking a smarter hybrid cloud approach using the tools platform and expertise of ibm. The world is going hybrid with ibm visit. Ibm dot com slash hybrid cloud. Hello and welcome to the splash. I'm john shea of the san francisco. Chronicle and our guest is giants leftfielder alex dickerson. Who's kind enough to join us after coming off a fabulous season as one of the best hitters on the team. We discuss playoff hopes for next. Season is unique theories about why the ball flies out at oracle park in the first guaranteed contract in his ten year. professional career. enjoy high alex. Thanks for coming on the podcast. And how you doing everything. Okay yeah doing great Just hanging out here in san diego. Yeah great well. There's so much talk about right now. We're in the offseason but you have a contract for twenty twenty one. The reasons for optimism with the team you coming off a solid twenty twenty and levi ross dickerson entered the world. Just as last season was coming to a close. Congratulations once again. But what what's fatherhood been like for you. It's it's been exhausting. But for the most part i it's been every bit as rewarding as it is tiring of people the way they warn you about it. It's it's every everything they said it would be your extremely tired for specially those first six weeks there but he started sleeping through the night now seeing him develop everything and he's Smiles gonna get in the room and it really really brightens my day like a senate extremely rewarding. It's been a great time beautiful. The big news of the baseball week was the non tender deadline in you're eligible for arbitration In your case it wasn't simply about tendering you though it was signing a guaranteed contract for twenty twenty one and you've been pro ball for a decade now signing out of college in twenty eleven and this is your first guaranteed deal. What what's the comfort level. I mean there are a lot of people who say a I got a different approach in spring training. Because it is a guarantee i can work on x y and z instead of trying to put up big numbers. Yes i mean for me. it's a. It's extremely big moment. Like you said i've been doing this for ten years now and i think a lot of people don't understand how long it takes to get any type of guarantee in this game and i know that better than anybody with specially with my injuries and if i got to tell myself two years ago that this would be the result santer two more years and getting to this point Think i don't think i would have been. I don't think that alex would be surprised. But he had no what it takes to overcome that and get to this point in the. It's a great moment for me. It's great mon for family and anybody else met stabs doctors. Anybody supported me through those tough times and definitely a getting getting the contract. Guaratee is a great feeling going into spring training. The does take weight off your shoulders where you're not you're not. You're you're always going to go and compete. You're always competing for your job. But it puts it puts you in a bowl. Were for the first time you're concerned really just about opening day. You're not you're not in there. Like oh my god i gotta make this team. You're still going to compete like that. But at the same time you're able to have a little bit of that weight taken off in a little bit of patience with yourself especially for those first few weeks of spring training just to make sure everything's going smoothly. You mentioned opening day and it seems right around the corner. It seems like we've finished last year yesterday but you see in the giants next season. I mean you fell one win shy of the play offs and it was a team that finished a lot better than started Once guys started getting in the groove are getting the position insist that they were more comfortable with. How do you. How do you How do you build on that and are the playoffs realistic. Because that's what our hands eighty. Seven is a goal. Yeah i absolutely think playoffs a realistic I think we're confident is anybody that We we thought we were that. I had that game that season been longer. I think you would've seen even more improvement on our end. This ours like the trajectory. We were eddie end and we had a tough schedule. We played it pretty well and There's a lot to be extremely excited about the offensive unit. Like one through nine the whole batch. Almost everybody's back and it's just a it's it's a great group fun lineup. the hidden. there's danger all the way up and down at. There's a lot of patience and i. I do think the layoffs are realistic goal for us. We're going to add a couple pieces here at some point Like you're always confident when you have a locker room. This guys have multiple world series rings already on the fingers. They know what it takes to get there. And i'd say we're as competent as anybody in the west is a extremely tough division of padres. Dodgers are extremely good teams diamondbacks and rockies always put up good fights and but We we think we can hang with their with with anybody. What do you think you'll have to do to get a couple. More pieces Her a if you were the gm had quite yet. But but i mean you you did lose smiley. Anderson was intended. You bring it back guzman. The offense was better than it has been in a lot of years And you know. There's bullpen depth. Always but you know there's talk about maybe a left handed batter to lay low third. Play second with longoria solano. But what are your thoughts on the roster. I still think we already have pieces there to compete. I don't know where we end up getting more. But what we have already is already an extremely competitive group Having guzman back at the front of that rotation. I mean that's that's great playing behind him were gray games last year. The guy's got credible arms got great endurance to really put a team on his back and then as far as other pieces. You never know where we're going to go and what we're going to add. But i think the trackers especially over the last two years of our front office has been able to add and get good quality at ads. Good-quality innings guys. It speaks for itself and Ara eddie this offseason. We signed jason vossler. A guy i've played with without paso. I think he's going to be a big part of what we do. I got to see him firsthand. And these solid player could play a lot of a lot of places in the infield. And i think he's another guys just been overlooked in the grand scheme of things and you're gonna get to see a really good baseball player. Get out there competing kind of add to what we already do while it. You mentioned is he the kind of versatile overall well rounded guy who can do a bunch of stuff for you that the steam likes to pursue. Absolutely i like. I said i got to play with them for a month. And i'll pass on saw that right away a guy that has a good approach. Play just a solid baseball player. Play all around around the infield and he's gonna fit in real nicely with what we what we got going for us. Alex you embrace or is it always goal to be the full-time guy out there You didn't you didn't get many bats against lefties but is there a feeling that if you did if you did get an extended opportunity you would have the numbers because looking at two thousand sixteen when when you play more games than any you've ever had you had a higher batting average against left these unreas- yes so that's kind of a. If you actually dig back miners. I want to say almost every single year my entire life. I've always had a higher average left on left Always hit them. Well so i i do. I will always believe that. I'm a guy that can go out there and face them. I'm not a detriment. Any team facing lefties. But i think at this point in my career. the platooning aspect is more to get me off my feet just a little more and give give me a chance to stay healthier and i'm all for however they wanted design and i think they have the opposite if they need to put me in there against the lefty get the job. Done it really. I think the the main thing that makes it work as well as does the fact that whoever we put in on the right hand side against those lefties they're going to be better against lefties than me. It's not that i'm bad against him. But when you're on slater darren rough out. There is guys pulverized them in one. You're looking at driving in runs on an entire season. That's where they're looking at when when he gets the platooning. It's not that. It's not that i don't have competence or they don't have confidence that i can't face left. Latin one of those platooning situations is more. That the other guy we're gonna put in. He's gonna. He's got a really good chance. Go deep off on one thing. I never had track record left on left. Was i'd ever hit him for quite as much power in the way the games play now. I think that's where a lot of the runs. Wanna be generated. Okay okay cool. How much work have you done in the offseason. So far is that more of a january thing. I'll never forget like the dulles story Your your giants debut You know the monster game. You had a grand slam. Two run triple a sharp single. Gary crowley that i were at your locker early asked about it in your quote was due for a good game and i thought i'd never heard that from anybody in all my years in the game but i think it's an explained what kinda hitter you are You know and i. I soon found out. What kind of hitter is you kind of. Carry the team for a month or two there but Wha what what is the off season training like and you're hitting schedule normally. Yeah so for me. It's the barely portions. There's definitely a break. I always have programmed in there a lot of times. Because i'm nursing some type of injury at the end of the year. Thankfully this last last year did not have that. But i did have a kid for the first time. The first month ended up being a lot of watching him and get an acclimated to being a dad. Wall getting ready for my job. And then after that. It's these these next november december for me or a lot of kind of mobility. Just kind of feeling out. Make sure my body's getting balanced and then here in these next few weeks when i really started getting into what i call baseball shape for them. Picking it up a little bit at in lot more cardio just getting a feel for how my body's moving around a i've taken out a lot of really heavy lifting of never seen the benefit for it. It's always made me feel worse. And quite frankly i've never hit the ball further from anything i've ever done in the weight room. It's always come from getting a little more mobility just a little better a little athleticism so almost entirely eliminated that and kobe itself. Kind of push that even further this year but then a the the baseball stuff. I pick up in january. The hitting doesn't take me very long to feel competitive. Normally it takes within a week and then it's just about building up some endurance and i kind of balance that out some some years. I'll do it early january some mid and then the throwing throwing the ever since the tommy. John i start doing that here in the next couple of weeks just to get a feel for what i need to work on kind of build up strength there and yeah then the spring training kind of takes care of the rest. Were you really put a put into the coals. Get after it and get the full baseball. The atmosphere going a lot of times. That's where the difficulty as he's less first two weeks of spring training. Because you can't simulate in the off season being includes all day the up and down the meetings all those things they really do. Add into your baseball endurance. And there's no way to really simulate that for what we do in the offseason. We'll be back with more of alex. Dickerson right after this quick break support for this. Podcast comes from progressive.

Twenty gratifying. Was that did you do anything different to maintain the and stay in the lineup. No it was a it was its own build up over the years. I always say every injury i've ever had been. It's more just another learning experience. I think some people like to take a look at any injuries. All your damaged goods now. You're only going downhill from here. But i've only gotten stronger and healthier from all of these because you start to learn how your body moves better. You better prepare it and where your flaws were. So i wasn't particularly surprised my twenty twenty when as well as a did the only surprise. Was that going into it. I mean we were short spring training and not being able to do a lot of the things that i know i need to do and there was definitely hiccups here. Were there tweak. Somethin- where i know it could have been avoided. Had we had normal rules. And i could do. My normal routine. Were at show up at noon. I'm doing stuff for three or four hours. Then make work away in batting practice and all that but unfortunately with the tobin rules this year they took that away and that was the one that a nervousness i had throughout the season was. Hey i'm not getting these things i know. I need to do to stay healthy end. I don't literally they don't let us in the building long enough to get them done and there. There were some like some difficult times throughout the season. Especially early on but all of very happy with how i was able to kind of work with the trainers strength staff and get enough into where i was able to kinda push through the finish line and wasn't really limping toward it. Well what about your season. Twenty twenty was a career high batting average on base slugging euro. Ps was nine forty seven only belt in yes had higher opium With what did you take from that. And how do you build on a good run. There especially for alabama was for a month there but at times. I knew i was hitting the ball. Hard newest control the strikes on pretty well. There was a lot of bad luck in there. And i'm happy that the giants knew that and hung with me because around the league you saw you saw guys getting taken off rosters for doing what i did in the first month and i always thought that i had. I was nervous. Because you're looking at that as like man. They really going to do that. Thirty games in any season. Anybody can have stretches like that and you kind of expect on but they had confidence in me and then i was able to get extremely hot there for the second month and really built non this just the kinda taken what. I've learned the continuing the competing process. I do believe that the under sixty two games. You wanna still seem the product that i put out there. Maybe even a little better. Considering how much bad luck. I had in that first month tend to only have one or two slumps feel like that and then the rest of us just kind of a balancing act the rest of the year and Really it's just kind of staying that staying that trajectory seeing seeing how far i could push this forward and continue to compete on everyday basis. You're right not. Did you like the new yard you. The wall was brought in. The archways were covered. The ball flew off the bad. Like i hadn't seen since the early two thousand just just curious about that and whether it was a much of a topic of aggravation monkey guys now. So the defense thing is a bit overblown. They moved it in like six feet. And right centered still the furthest right-field right-center there is. I mean it's still so far out there in center. They moved it in like seven or eight feet. It may be a little low sibal in the gap. This and there might have been wandered. Wanda three or four balls snuck out for people this year. That wouldn't have the archway thing. I don't think that had any effect on it. I think that's too low to really affect flight on the baseball. Especially in such an open stadium at oracle. But i think what you really did see was our guys were top to bottom just hitting the ball much harder and i think the exit velocities and stuff like that would agree. We just had a great team approach. We had a great hitting group with with the staff. We had making adjustments for us. And i think as a as a whole the giants were just hitting the ball. Much harder than out of the ballpark. I don't think played into that much at all Maybe a little bit may be attended manley because it is like. I said it's huge. Were that thing was four. Twenty one before it's supposed to be under four hundred feet most ballparks. It's still way further than normal. It's still a pitcher's part but Yeah i i think it's more of a product of good quality hitting our end. Okay okay because i go back to that you you played that exhibition against the as in chattanooga came up a right handed hitter. I just don't see many balls by a right handed hitter. Hit to the part of the ballpark that he hit. And it's true that that doesn't happen often but the thing that the i don't think people realize Maybe they don't know his name. He's very well known for being able to absolutely massacre ball. Smooth right-center like freakish. I think more credit to him. They'll do freakish stuff. Same with ted teased. Did the same thing i think people are were looking for all the ballpark's changed but it now that that guy if you see some of his home runs throughout the season he consistently balls like hundred ten miles an hour. It's not lots of prizes capable of that. What about the ball itself. Same ball or with cold. You could make an argument. I think it's definitely. I don't think the ball is different from twenty nine thousand nine hundred twenty The ball that has less drag definitely travels better. I think a lot of a especially throughout the league the opposite field homer it used to be. You only saw big guys doing that. You're seeing a lot of smaller guys and more. Some of that might be swing changed. Some of it might be the pitching that much harder. But i think as an outfielder i can definitely say that in. But i've said this since two thousand sixteen like early twenties sixteen that the major league ball has always traveled much better than you ever saw in the minor leagues. There was definitely a huge difference. That was not being talked about then to the point when they finally brought it into aaa. You saw. The numbers skyrocket which i definitely anticipated in their the one balancing act. Pc hell hat was that yeah. The ball flew because the ballpark's for good to hidden but the baseball did not go as far and then when they add the change the baseball than it became a joke. So i think it's always in the big leagues traveled better. I don't know that got any extra better from sixteen to nineteen in the numbers will probably say different but it's always had less drag traveled better and that was very apparent to me said site like i got into the major leagues. How the giants in in particular in the in baseball in general at least until that final game of the world series stay largely free of nineteen. I mean there were the early cases with the marlins early cases with the cardinals but people for the most part seem to figure it out in it the whole season. Yeah i think on our end the really the thing was is if you just did. The protocol emmanuel even been as much of the protocol is just. You had to stay within your within your own team your own little bubble you had you had to stay home and really just avoiding the general public as much as possible and i think with our group. You didn't have guys at like at were eager to go out or any of that kind of thing in there's just a good focus from the get-go along with us fallin. The protocols helps a lot. But i really gets the when you look back at the season. The outbreaks stuff. I think there's probably some questions as the weather people were able to just follow everything as the as intended or whether they got outside of the bubble. You don't really know how these things get end. But i think with us. Everybody took it seriously from the get go and knew what was at stake. As far as you know our season we'd already lost a lot of games to to the kobe. Thing and i was just focused on staying in your mask on when you needed it on You know avoiding people avoiding going into the grocery store as much as you physically could avoid. Those kind of Distractions that could lead to you. Get an in contact with somebody. The added well you. You had that false positive. It's such a rare thing but it was an unfortunate thing. Wife is pregnant and people are pointing fingers until we realized it definitely was a false positive and looking back at how stressful was. I mean you're trying to get ready for games. And did you move on quickly. I mean with was there a lesson or is there a lesson for people in these times Yeah so that was one of the toughest forty eight hours ever dealt with the my life mainly because i didn't know it was almost like because of how well we were doing with it. It just did. The numbers didn't add up to where i could have gone in. If i would have gotten it a new. I would have had gotten it in san francisco where i was even more quarantine because i would staying at a hotel across the street and walking straight there and the fact that nobody else has positive like i was pretty confident. Did not have now. That said all the doubts start creeping in as this is going on and it happens to be in san diego the one time gotten see my wife and you know however many weeks months and so. She's the only person that was permitted to seize. She was only person did see but the test had failed. We showed up at two. Am and by the test. That was positive for was at noon. So i knew when people were trying to say that all i got at seeing family and stuff leaving my credibility is not there. It wouldn't have been possible for me to have gone and seen family in all those things and bring it in from the outside. So i knew that if i did indeed have a positive it was from within our own. Protocols was just seemed subaru unlikely but the stress of having to knowing that. If i did have it that would have given it to my wife who was about to go into labor week. And you don't end the hear all these horror stories about kobe pregnancy. What they're having to put some women in medically these coma so the stress of that in trying to clear us was miserable. I mean we took probably does it within a couple days trying to really confirm that did not have it then knowing that you have people looking at you like you destroyed the game in in the season even of nobody was doing that with me but i just had that feeling of manage screwed everybody over so it was unfortunate. It was terrible time. I'm happy to have got through it like we. We were able to do a very happy. That the That did happen at san diego. We had a lot of help from the padres. Doctors was well as their own. Their front office in ours really working together to get cleared back on the field but yeah it was a extremely tough time and wouldn't wish it upon anybody but very thankful that turned out. Alright yeah for sure. I can't imagine We'll just one last thing. There's a coup event coming up that you're involved with that benefits Underserved kids in the bay area and it's called holiday heroes at home. It's december eighth a tuesday. It's five o'clock yourself. I believe public sandoval. A mother's I think pablo will get a an award for his philanthropy but with what can you say about that of the alex. Yes oh it's an event to try to give back to underserved kids in the bay area. During this christmas time. It's a live event is just unbelievable. I got to do it last year. And you get that oracle park and they had all these events setup and there was a who's who of the niners. The warriors giants leg is the representation from everybody in the area was incredible. The experience was amazing and unfortunately with kobe Give that get that experience. For the kids. Out there the That's the downside of it. But the the upside is that now that we're doing it virtually this year We're going to be in a position. Where even if you can't make a door oracle go even if you're not in the area at the time you can join in and kind of take part in some of the festivities and anybody out there that wants to get it back to it. I think it's an incredible pause and it's gonna be needed much more this year than ever with such a tough year for so many families so Yeah it's just a great band. I'm extremely excited. Foreign excited to help get back to families that have had just a tough time wonderful. I mean you can go for more information to the website. Holiday eros dot org holiday. Heroes dot oregon. You can pick up tickets and you get some cool stuff in return. There's an auction at all kinds of stuff. And plus the feeling you'd be open these cans along but Yeah alex thanks so much for for being with us and best of luck to you. Approaching the twenty twenty one season.

Adam curry john devora twenty twenty twenty one winning nation media assassination episode. Thirteen forty one. This is no agenda. Taxable broadcasting live from opportunities on thirty three on the frontier of austin texas capital of the drove star. Stay i'm out of furry and for northern silicon valley where it's not raining. It's supposed to be raining. They say it would be raining. Everyone is going to be rain. But it's not raining the hopkin they predict global warming. I'm jesse dorothy. If you'd like me to shake the stick for california. I'm happy to do it if you want to make it rain we got rain. We know how to do. Rain can make it rain. Will we could use the rain because otherwise we're going to have is going to be bad enough fires because they do such a poor job of fire management nowadays. Hey was there an area blame that global warming you. We'll get to that. We'll get to the global warming realistic. Sure who doing the stick for california. All right what do we need. Is it a one shake. Two a half shake one one one have period one rotation. Gentlemen if you're new to the program these are official arranged six. They come from utah. they're handmade they. Are they real. They work. We are licensed professionals. Please do not try this at home. Pointing towards california. Ready three two one side. Good to the last draw. Let you do it. Hey i think there was an error and it was a weird one. Because i saw it. I didn't register. And then i check with my sister and then like oh my goodness did. We mistakenly put italy in in the newsletter instead of india regarding the covert outbreak. Now are you sure. I'm pretty sure. I go back and check. But i'm pretty sure i pulled this down from italy and then the stuff showed up on wires possible that original report was bad. Maybe i i screwed up. Let me say india's out of control. Let me just see what it says here. says italy in the newsletter. I knew was a mistake. Because i called willow unlike what the hell what's going on over there. Yeah no of course. I didn't understand it. I got to italy. reference from anyway did call willow. Who's in tusk. And she said no. It's exactly the opposite. Were were doing great here however She works for a company that has outsources in india and she said Lots of her colleagues have tested positive. some May or may not be sick but they are staying home. Their chief technology officer was briefly hospitalized. But i have two other reports from clips about indian from italy. But i will say this when i pulled down the italy thing and then went to look for photos. Loaded with photos from italy. There's dipoto in the newseum venice venice and look for all that and could not find it anyway so this is from From one of our we'll to those clips you just short notes. Part of my job requires working closely with our india teams another producer this week. One of the guys are work with us. Telling about how corona things are where he is. that's why he says very similar curfews in place places of worship schools closed. Nobody wants to go back to the office. Everyone's getting a pet because they're staying at home. I mean this could be any more like us. Everyone's getting pets but this report let's see updated my experience working with indian dudes named ben. Our company outsource some of programmers to feel free to share on the show. I manage a team of programmers and qa analysts work from india since the start of covert. I was waiting for something bad to happen with the guys working overseas since everything so close together over there and they take their religious festivals. Very seriously for some reason. None of the guys on my team got cobra throat. Any of twenty nineteen twenty twenty. They would tell me how they're stuck in their homes and had curfews and only allowed to go out on certain days to get groceries at the worst of the pandemic in the past three months. I've watched five our team members. Go down with covid. They would be out for at least two to three weeks and some just never came back. One of the guys who got quote covid miraculously ended up a new job after getting better. My point is simply that sing. Things seemed totally fine for a while but the last few months the virus was ripping through india. One of the guy said he was feeling sick. Got tested in the meantime he called the hospital spoke to manage told him if he had to be admitted they would have no beds for him or his family. The funny thing is this guy had a doctor living in his house who gave him some medicine and said his felt much better. He said it was the ready pack. It's the two cent ready. Pack that we've been talking about you bucks to bash. So what do we think. The way i see this It's very possible that this is a a strain people testing positive to me though. Just looking at the pictures looking at the store looking at the videos of people you know wailing away. I just feel so manhattan to me. You know with the with the video. I i feel very much the same and i want to mention something else before we go onto this forget i did. I do too little look at the tv. In the morning even assigned there's mostly just the Face the nation three by three. It was a very interesting report on on this stepping off the show. Some guy came wearing a detroit tigers. Had i don't know that was all well. Detroit is detroit is trying to get everyone to vaccinate. There's a lot of hesitancy there. So ooh yeah i feel. It seems it seems as if the current hesitancy which is broad based all across the country stuff and if they're actually beginning to document and it turns out because of the dates and every when it started once they they. They took the johnson and johnson vaccine off the market. That's when it began. What what. I think is that it. If you would there've been brainwashing the public at large thing all the vaccines are the same. Just get what. You can't get what you can get where you can get. We can get what you can. And so when they pull the johnson and johnson vaccine to this audience it said. Oh my god. This one's no good. They must all be good because of the connection between the three as yes. Can't get what you can. well did you hear. Did you hear the news report. That i think really turned everybody off of the vaccines. I mean. this was unbelievable. You when you when you do something like this on the news. I mean you should be fired and you should have to sit in the pfizer dungeon now. This is indirect sound so it takes a second to get accustomed to it officials. Vaccinations the only return to normalcy almost four months into the vaccination effort providers are beginning to run out of people who want be using you a small gaff from immunized youth and is what can i say that was good one anyway so back to the real point which was this johnson and johnson poll. I think triggered a real responsibility did not expect. I think pfizer's got to be kicking themselves. Yes this was just a you know an icing on the cake. Let's get rid of those guys while we're at it. And meanwhile it put the kibosh on the whole thing and and they're now all the reports locally which is but you always expect it from the get-go which is this shoulders huge operations in drive in theaters and all these lies and there on cars and they ended with the nurse comes on and she says You know if you just wanna come in and maybe you didn't like the idea of signing up. Come in don't worry. We're here. I come in there was a i mean yes. I heard scott gottlieb the former fda commissioner who is now on the board adviser. He was on cnbc several times since last time. We did the show and you could tell that he was like oh man no no. They'll bring it back and it's all good. He was he was kind of schilling. A little bit on the side of johnson and johnson just to get everyone's confidence back. I think you're right through pooch this report. That was stepping awful. This show is doing everything but begging people to take and they had all the stats and how many people had likelihood of getting hit by lightning. Blood clot was unbelievable. But it's too late you you screwed yourself. Think i think actually have a thirteen second clip of this about the reclassification of johnson johnson. I think what does this. I listened to hours of discussion among the advisory panel to the cdc and was blown away by the depth of discussion the seriousness of thought the degree of expertise. These are some of the smartest people on the planet. So don't worry when they when they say it's good to go. It's good to go. The smartest people on the planet smarter work for the government. Smart assess smarter than dr bill. Yeah baby yeah. Do you want to hear the detroit thing and you wanna go into india india clips. Andy eclipse was do those and 'cause this is i mean it's again to me sure variant. Yeah as possible People if this this is an npr report. So you're going to have to live with it okay. I'm ready for. And i assume that this is part of that. Whatever the knee supposed to be. Npr would have it. If you know what i mean. John was on point as usual what they were on their on. Something health experts have told us all along during the coronavirus pandemic that this is a global problem that a surge in infections in one country often accompanied by the emergence of new variants of the virus represents a threat to public health everywhere. India today confirmed nearly three hundred fifty thousand new daily coronavirus virus cases. That's a world. Records of the pandemic has broken record three days in a row. Now the result is that india's health system is collapsing hospitals are overloaded and experiencing widespread shortages of life-saving equipment and medicines. And here's lauren. Friar is in mumbai one of the worst hit cities. And she's with us now. Laura thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me michelle. What is the situation there today. While the number one biggest need across all of india right now is oxygen. Big hospital chains have been tweeting out these. sos messages. I saw one a few minutes ago saying they have less than two. Our supply left. There was one hospital in delhi where officials say an oxygen tanker arrived to resupply them six hours late and twenty. Five people died last night because of the delay. These are hundreds possibly thousands of patients dying like this every night and hospitals are trying to ration oxygen and the hold on a second hundreds possibly thousands dying every night. No it was twenty five last night twenty-five and then she just makes up some numbers jin tanker arrived to resupply them six hours. Late and twenty five people died last night because of the delay. These are hundreds possibly thousands of patients dying like this every night and hospitals are trying to ration oxygen and these are patients that actually beat the odds and manage to get a hospital bed which is a huge feat right now in india and then they die with doctors at their bedsides helpless. You can imagine how difficult this is for the medical staff as well and many of these deaths could have been prevented if india had better prepared for this. You know we are more than a year into this pandemic so skeptical i hate. I hate to say. I'm skeptical of these reports. Sure if people are sick we've got a mutant inter mutant warning sound. You know yeah people get sick and some will die t man. I don't know why now on your part this mention that she says twenty five died last night. Yeah then hundreds maybe thousands who knows dave she kind of Has a weasel weasel way out of this comment Because she will you'll hear it coming up at this whole thing is india should have been better prepared to this. Should be over wi prepared for what there wasn't article that may be related. Medical workers among themselves at corentin The us canada and uk among some of the high income countries actively blocking a patent waiver proposal designed to boost the global production of the covid nineteen vaccines and this is organized by. Believe it or not mainly india to what the article says. Is that these a whole rich. Western countries who developed vaccine don't want to waive the right on the patents in order for them to be made cheaply in their countries. Do you think it may be possible if we listen to the rest of these. Npr clips that perhaps this is partially a ploy to get a p wavered way the ip rights wave. So that they can jumping on the bonanza. Well it's interesting because it's a it's a twisted version of what you said that's coming up in this. The next clip was play part to you. Know to that and lauren. You know the reporting had been your reporting had been. The india seemed to be a success case with a number of new cases. Going down steadily. What happened. I mean why was india seemingly caught unprepared. Yeah and this just caught everyone. by surprise. i mean in late. January early february cases were at record lows. The government here declared an end game to the pandemic. You know in hindsight. We know it wasn't the end. Everybody went back to normal though. They stop social distancing. There weren't so diligent about masks and and scientists. That's not true. Just listen to what our producers just said. That's not true to say you know. The virus had not gone in fact new variants were lurking and they've spread it the speed that we've just not seen anywhere else in the world and i wanna say the numbers that were reporting are staggering of cases and deaths. But they are almost certainly an undercount because they're shortages of here. People are dying at home unable to get care. Crematoriums are working twenty. Four seven and prime minister narendra modi's facing public anger. Now that he himself in slow to act and he's only only days ago that he was presiding over huge political rallies with thousands of attendees. So what's the government doing now. We'll mody canceled one of his rallies yesterday to chair. An emergency meeting didn't another emergency meeting. Today he announced he's lifting customs duties on oxygen imports. He's also widening the eligibility for vaccinations. Starting may first but you know it's unclear how they will provide those doses because they've already run out. Okay interesting mody connection. There's a political aspect the thing that that really set me off a doubting this was an article from scientific american titled india's massive kovic surge puzzle scientists. He know what's in there. Lots of cases. Numbers cases Eight hundred fifty four thousand cases death numbers not in the article was just an online article Well yeah let me. Just see the date on it. Yeah scientific american and this this india thing just started. Recently i surprised a magazine is a monthly Normal publication cycle would have breaking news. But it seems like was exceed on is when i see magazine don't normally produce breaking news breaking news. It's just an artist. Breaking news is the new thing. We didn't talk about the last show which is a few days ago. Now they do have the kovacs vaccine there and india has done one hundred and twenty million doses on sorry. Oh that's interesting here. In this article they say mostly the indian produced version of the us oxford astrazeneca vaccine. But you know just when you put it all together when you when you when you have. I'm just gonna look china for a moment. Maybe possibly modi's a problem for them you know. They're they're cozied up to pakistan to now we get this mody element we get the same kind of cases cases cases for all we know that just jacked up the c. T count on the cases. I mean that's possible. People are dying in the hospital every single day in india. For sure you know when you're in there and you see the video and people of their mass down or off and they're crying the wailing and then let's show ten bodies burning at a cemetery. We're familiar with knuckle shit. So let's go to the three because i think this may include a little bit about the vaccines provide those doses. Because they've already run out. This was a point of pride. India's the world's biggest vaccine maker had been exporting vaccines and now it doesn't have enough for its own population. The biggest supplier here is pleading with the united states with president biden to lift in export ban on raw materials. Things like test tubes that they need to to ramp up production and so far the. Us has not obliged hasn't done that test tubes. Stop the clip. We make test tubes. I doubt it a but as possible we do. But what's it got to do it. The price of bread you. What do you need more test tubes. Seriously it's in. China makes a million test tubes at the drop of a hat anytime you want him. And i'm surprised. India which i'm sure has glass manufacturing could make damn test tubes but then the reason i stopped there wasn't actually double. There's a new reason. Which is the concept of this licensing. A problem that you mentioned earlier Which may have something to do with the way this report kinda off the off the demand here with the test tubes bitching and dimension that india does make most of the vaccines almost the most vaccines you get made in india which is something to think about This this is very very sketchy and not explained. Well and npr handles these stories. They got the correspondent right there and then they have the the the woman who's asking her questions white isn't a woman right now. Say what are. They need all these. What did any mo- more test tubes for. How did they run out if they're if they're the number. One manufacturer vaccine is isn't it. A continuous process is not a batch process. It's got a big. They have to be coming off the lying disallow. I am am i wrong. There's got to be a line of these little bottles. Flying out of the place. Now just stopped what happened. What changed guess what i be asking. Yeah i think we'll get the answers. Once we start to see a world leader speak and call for things but once we get rid of load is probably would. Yeah that sounds like a like part of the mission right there. yeah he was trumper. That's right trumper problems. Next if i ask you. Lauren what about you are you. Are you say down in mumbai. What about you know other gatherings. What about moving about the city. Sue moody has ruled out a national lockdown countrywide. Because it's just so painful for india's poor last spring. India's economy shrank twenty four percent under lockdown we actually had cases of poor migrant workers literally starving to death on the roads so lockdowns or regional and i am in under lockdown now in mumbai. It's very strict. Police patrol the streets. You can't go out for a walk. And social media has turned into a lifeline for people people trying to arrange hospital beds for one another trading phone numbers for doctors. I spoke a couple of hours ago with a friend of mine who has covid and is at home and has been calling dozens of doctors. Dozens like imagine being sick. And no one answers when you call nine one one and that is the situation. Thousands and thousands of indians are going through right now alone but that's because india come on imagine. You can't call nine one one well. That's india is positioning definitely. Sounds like position something up. Yeah well let's look at it from the pfizer marketing perspective and get a little update on what they're doing because they're not sitting still in fact they have put together quite a nice deal with the country of candy navia. Now as you know. They already have a petri. They made a petri dish out of israel and pretty much. Everyone is vaccinated there but Or you get the freedom bracelet of shame. But this is what's going down and can the navia more and more canadians are getting vaccinated right now. It's also important to planet head for the future. We've reached an agreement with pfizer for thirty five million booster doses for next year million in the year after include options to add thirty million doses in both twenty twenty two and twenty twenty three an option for sixty million doses in one thousand nine. Twenty four has has been a solid for canada goose. It's a good deal man. He's got options for twenty twenty four cannon avia in twenty twenty four pfizer as been a solid partner for canada in this fight against covid nineteen. And we're happy to be one of the first countries to secure an agreement with them going forward. These boosters were dat dumb the latest version of the pfizer this is. This is new information here home about these boosters. The boosters are different. East boosters will be the latest version of the pfizer vaccine based on research upgrade and they will help us keep the virus under control. So you remember we were joking about. Hey you got your two shots and now you have to have something shot into your every year every six months otherwise you'll deteriorate too when they say oh these will. This is the new the new vaccine. The new booster Keep him alive thing. Well it's possible so we keep them alive boosting drop dead. If you don't get the we We know that we heard one of the Tiktok influencers mentioned that. She had received several offers for thousands of dollars to do. Take talk videos regarding you. Get a little more if you're going into your arm but yeah it. Seems like a pretty good programmed. Most influences would hop on. And since you just mentioned the mass vaccination sites that you drive up with your car which no one is going to. It only makes sense at this influencers. May that her arena guys. Because i literally just rented a car for the day so that i can get my first eligible starting monday. I look. there's one appointment but it's at a drive through area. Only and i don't have a car but i was willing to a car so that you can stick a needle in my arm to get vaccine excited. I'm so excited. Woman should be shot and she. She followed the talking points. Perfect so i can get that in my arm. She did everything beautifully. Very well done the you know i would assume could be wrong. You could if in one of those big vaccination lots could walk up to the walk up to the people there. There's nobody there you have to rent a car rental car. You have to rent a car. You got to rent a car if you're doing this. She's now she's getting paid to do it. That's why it's horrible. And she's not disclosing it which is an f. T. f. t. c. violation but okay that we remember the. We remember the spokes whole ftc. By the way this has been going on on tiktok incessantly for at least a month or what month. What am i saying. Why don't you call jim jordan. I'm sure he'll talk about it. In congress for hours jen. Psaki glenn greenwald of congress. Right point that's a bad one. Jen psaki Lifted a bit of the veil of the three billion dollars that the federal government is making available to promote vaccination for those who were vac who have high visibility Here's a reminder of what she said investing three billion dollars to states and community based organizations to strengthen vaccine confidence in the highest risk and hardest hit communities and often people Think of that as just black and brown communities and that is not as you've noted that is also conservative communities white evangelicals. it's a range of communities around the country We're also looking for we've run. Psa's on the deadliest catch we're engaged with nascar and country music tv okay. So let's go checkout nascar. You recall that that. Nbc got a lot of this money. Nbc has a big celebrity star studded gala. Either coming or we missed it. i don't know so what. What else would you expect for them to continue with their spend their ad by they bought off. Nascar a superstar dale jarrett. They put him on the track next to a nas car with a big nbc logo on it. Racetrax like this are mary special place especially for competitive. Ultra much though for the last year. We've seen these stands be empty at these racists. We gotta get back to something. That's a lot more of our normal situation to where we have thousands of thousands watching these racists from the grandstands there with your friends with your family enjoying this time. I don't we go about getting back to that situation. Getting the vaccine. I've done my part. I did the research. I talked with my family. It was some very tough conversations that i had with my family but i had done. I know this is the way to get back to a much more normal life enjoying it where we can have fans in the stands once again enjoying what these drivers do as they perform a show and try to win the race kid. Sure you can't hear it as a driver when you're inside of there but when you make that pass for the lead and you're trying to win the race you know what's going on the net grandstand and there's not a better feeling at the end of a long day to get out as the winner and have those fans cheering he's gonna wind won the daytona five hundred of my family and friends. There wasn't a better feeling in my life super job there. They'll tell you. I'm really proud of you. Just exactly what you have told your. I told me all along that. So do your part is safe is effective. And it's easy to get Do the work. But he whoever wrote dead made a mistake a mistake in their script by think and of course he's got this type. Thing is a very thick north carolina accent but he says this the greatest when he won the daytona five hundred greatest feeling in my life until i got the show. S that would. Why don't these people ever hire professionals beyond me. Why don't they hire pros. Like message has been going out as. Oh i feel so great because i got shot or got to shot so i feel like a million dollars. I just got the nuts. Made me feel better than getting the shot. There is a wide open. it was like his size. It was you know a ten lane highway wide open. That line in now dropped it. Yeah i know. I know it by the way. Is this the best they can do fail. Jerry hasn't raced for twenty five. You well who else guy was gonna take that money and go against pretty much every nascar fan. There is whether they get the vaccine or not nascar fans don't like that they gonna take that shit next to nbc car please. I'm sure they have the they have the rights to the race. But come on and it doesn't really matter people because you know when you're in the seats you know you're going to be muzzled and now there's a clear divide over who is is in vaccinated at dodger stadium this weekend fans with proof can sit in fully vaccinated section but they have to wear masks on game day and it's not just the east coast west coast a what i had. Somebody argues be well. I think they should have have to have a a a one of these passports to get on an airplane because i don't want unvaccinated people sitting in the airplane with me and the response to that is a vaccine is so great. What you give a shit who sits next to you. You're vaccinated. why do you care unbelieva. Nobody has an answer for that. Well they certainly don't have an answer at oracle park. Either oracle park is starting to welcome back even more fans. And there's a special perk for those who are fully vaccinated their own seating sections. Dr peter jinhong is a professor of medicine and infectious disease at ucsf. He says even though all the people in the section will be vaccinated. There's still a risk. People may feel a little bit more than simple which is not the case The more civil knows you bring together even though they are vaccinated. It's not the same as being in a small group of that. Listen que- also have Think we also have the los angeles and now there's a clear divide over who is in is in vaccinate dodge them. Sorry i just did that one. It's it's everywhere you everywhere you're going to be in a special section with your mask with the matter. Which is ludicrous. ludicrous. Pictures all vaccinated. But you're and your weight your biscuit. This read together vaccinated. You're even go. You're the fourteen days out your vaccinated. Fourteen days out. You feel invincible. You feel that you beat the world where mass mask up. It doesn't make any sense. Well the bigger problem of course is the vaccine hesitancy as we now see supply outstripping demand. Nbc nightly news spent some time on it. It's more attention now. Turns to vaccinating. Children tells us about something called parent. Hesitancy oh no or how about parent protection. No hesitancy thanks. nbc. It is likely a matter of time before. Children are eligible for the covid vaccine. Will their parents be ready to vaccinate them. Would you consider yourself an anti vaccine. Her no like. I said my children have been vaccinated against other diseases. But ashley poindexter. Tommy says girls won't be getting the covid vaccine not yet. I don't feel safe enough if this had been on the market for ten to fifteen years and i had more data than i would feel more comfortable. A recent study showed more than twenty five percent of parents do not intend to vaccinate their kids. And it's not an emergency in the pediatric population. Among them registered nurse jessica brandis herself vaccinated against cove it. I have guy when you're old and a two and a half year old. And i i. I'm very pro. Vaccine but dot covered by team is missing from this report. I just realized nowhere. I think that they mentioned that. The emergency use authorization for eighteen years and older and pfizer dern and johnson and johnson are all lobbying lobbying the fda to lower that age. I think they should at least disclaim that and say that you know this. There hasn't necessarily been additional testing or additional study. I mean these were big trials right the thirty days sixty days ninety days and they. I don't think they've done that with children. At least i haven't seen the reports but they're asking for this exception to go even lower as moved as you to move this project. Five children are much less at risk from house and break down the science shows. The kids are not spreading it or cheering but herd. Immunity may depend on their. Vaccinations do transmit so returned to normalcy. Especially for children would require that we vaccinate children as well and arguments. Doesn't throw in some douchebag with ashley who got the johnson and johnson vaccine. What was your reaction to the news. The johnson and johnson was put on home. I felt like i was right back at the beginning of the pandemic a lot. She has concerns should find comfort in the fact that vaccine development is proceeding cautiously and systematically and evaluation of these vaccines in children is very systematic following. The vaccine trials in children closely adult. I can make my own choices about how i feel. I can put myself in harm's way with your children your more protective for now. She says she will need more convincing. Stephanie gospel nbc news. We're gonna there you go. So trials steph damaged. Message out to stephanie. Gos- kind of make these reports that a little longer. Anyway we know what the real problem is. It's obvious come on. Comes as the fight against. The corona virus may have reached a crossroads. Long waits for shots are now giving way to empty vaccination sites as vaccine supplies expected to soon outpaced demand. Some messed explanation sites are now allowing walk ins and drive ups for anyone. We're about the point. Where any american who wants to get a vaccine. We'll lonzo them can get a vaccine. And that's what you need to get to that eighty percent threshold for when life can resume back to normal. This is an interesting now. You just heard that if from tunnel like a asian dr No you need the vaccine to get to hurt immunity. I just believe that to be not true. And he's this guy is also saying well you need the eighty percent we get as he's kind of saying you need to vaccinate eighty percent of the population but isn't it herd. Immunity is one eighty five. Eighty percent has antibodies. It doesn't have to be from vaccinations. Correct yeah yeah actually. You're right in fact. There's an interesting report. I think i clicked it to which i think is worth playing. I mean meanwhile let me look up the heard because you know. They changed the herd immunity definition. We know or at least dictionary dot com did. Let's see her immunity. Never click the first one curry. That's the ad. Here miriam webster. I'm sure they're woke reduction. In the risk of infection with a specific communicable disease that occurs when a significant proportion of the population has become immune to affection infection as because of previous exposure or vaccination. You go but this guy says about at the point where any american who wants to get a vaccine can get a vaccine and that's what you need to get to that eighty percent threshold for when life can resume back to normal more than thirty five million americans. Forty percent of the population have received at least one shot but vaccinations are lagging in the deep south and parts of the midwest nationwide and eleven percent week over week drop. Some areas are refusing. Vaccine shipments more than sixty of the one hundred five counties in kansas. Turn them down this week because it would go unused if you look at the lowest vaccination rates in the country right now. They're overwhelmingly red states. I live out of that is due to a vaccine hesitancy and refusal among among us all the poll say conservative. Republican orangemen bed. Of course of course the republicans are gonna kill the country. Kill ya bunch of murderers. Yeah good morning. America or america. This morning they even had a map and now another potential problem in the race. Vaccinate thousands of appointments going unfilled the us now averaging fewer than three million doses per jay the lowest number in weeks the areas of darker blue on this map. Show where americans were resisting vaccine. The most which was interesting. Because why would you do blue instead of red. I thought that was an odd choice of file up. Yeah someone made a mistake. He tells details details. I have a clip. I want you to play this. This is Jose gupta the guy on cnn. The actor no. It's not jose now. Now you've confused me. What the hell is jay. Sanjay gupta jose. Jose comes he will forever be jose gupta that i will now discuss the booster shot that we talked about a little while ago. Recently there was a news article that basically talked about the study that showed there is great protection from the modern adviser vaccines at six months. There's still ninety percent protection. Basically is what the study showed. I think some people took that to mean that. That's that was your protection. That's how long the vaccine lasts. No what that really meant was we have dated now up to six months and at that point we can sort of say. Here's how much protection you still have. Which was significant. It could be that a year six months from now a year from total You could still have significant protection. And frankly that is the likelihood but we just don't know yet the way to know how long something lasts in. This case is with the passage of time so as more days on and we collect more data. We're gonna have a better idea. Some good news potentially though went back and looked at some of the sars data from the coronavirus from two thousand three and they found that even seventeen years later there was significant protection if people had been naturally infected people who got infected in two thousand and three even in two thousand twenty they still have had evidence of significant protection so potentially good news. There you know again. We'll see how long these vaccines last. We'll see the impact of the variants on all of this because there's a variant that occurs that is makes the virus is so different that your current antibodies aren't as protective that could accelerate the need for a booster or third shot. But we're not at that point yet. But that's that's obviously were a lot of people are focusing their attention. No not not you buddy up there in canada. He's he's idea. yeah now. I want to mention something. That's again not discussed the corona viruses mark by these spike proteins. Damn are in a vaccine is designed to create. have your own body create these spike proteins. Which is seems sketchy. Belkis where supposed to work great the spike proteins and then you develop antibodies against the spike proteins. What kind of variant covid or a corona virus have to get to so despite proteins don't exist because the whole method of gerona virus the whole mechanism of a grown of is no matter how it's very whether it's got you know an aids lincoln there. Whatever whatever it is. It's still going to have the spike protein. Yeah just like the common cold. If this vaccine works at all it should not all of them out. No matter what the variants shouldn't make a difference at all. Would nobody even mentioned this. You doctor now. You've got to exactly right right eight. Well if we were on any type of Platform that was run by silicon valley. This would be over. the show would be over. We'd be done with it because we fact checked out of existence and it turns out that it turns out that fact check dot org which is used by. I think In conjunction of the fact check network. It's a part of that Which is what. Facebook uses twitter uses. I think twitter uses them as well. Richard e besser who is the He's the ceo of the robert. Johnson would foundation and they happily donated a about fifty thousand dollars and Interestingly enough Some nice johnson and johnson stock and he was the former director of cdc and that's now funding factcheck dot org site check covid nineteen vaccination fact check division. So we've got. The pharmaceutical people have no real problem with former. Cdc director being involved in that but taking money taking money from pharmaceutical donors isn't that what do you call that conflict of interest will. Here's where i if. I'm on that side of the fence. I'd say start a conflict of interest at all trying to provide the public with good information and we would be the ones who know yes and as a conflict of interest through. You're getting paid. You're getting paid. Maybe they don't want to say something bad about them all. Don't be silly okay. I know. I'm a conspiracy theorist on Can i tell you. There's no way that's ever going to happen. Let's go back to abc this morning. Turning to the pandemic demand for the co vaccine is dropping across the country. A new city claim the us is now reaching a tipping point. I will exceed demand. Doctors say it could make achieving immunity more difficult. The biden administration is now offering tax credits to companies so that they can give their employees paid time off to get the vaccine the harder stages of vaccination here for the most part people who are very excited about getting the vaccine have gotten it and so we've got left people who either have a little bit of hesitancy or who are willing to get the vaccine but have logistical barriers to doing so interventions like the one the biden administration put into place can be helpful because there are a lot of people who want to get. The vaccine. can't take a day off of work the vaccine itself for the possible side effects. I mean they're going to have to do something about the messaging because it's leaking out. Although facing door. facebook did just delete one hundred and twenty thousand member group where people were posting stories of adverse reactions to the vaccine. But no that had to go. Jimmy door tweeted this poor jimmy for jimmy. I had my second. Madonna shot last saturday. I am still experiencing flu. like symptoms. Body aches mild headaches and waves of exhaustion. That come out of nowhere. Should i be concerned that this is lasting for a week. You should see the the reply as the replies to that. That tweet are hilarious. It's probably equal people are saying I just have to read some of these. Because it's too funny. You got people telling him you know like totally freaking out here. I don't think you need to be concerned. But i do think you should be thankful you never caught the virus because your immune system may not have been up to the task. Yeah hey wait. That's a genius response. That's like a far far big pharma response. It's a that that's great response. We'll see who. Oh well that's a steve cox independent candidate for congress. California district thirty nine. Hey jamie after my second moderna shot. I had the same thing. Plus low s p o two levels shortness of breath and fatigued yesterday exactly three weeks to the day of my second shot. I've now been diagnosed with bell palsy and among the cocktail good. Yeah oh yeah people posting that. What's going on with them. This outrageous is out of control and the fact that facebook would take. These people aren't being dishonest. Nobody's gonna say have bell's palsy out of the blue they don't have it no gosh man away from people out there wanna know bell's palsy which is a frightening thing to get your use you wake up with. It's something a nerve goes out or something happens on on one side of your face and the whole side is just numb and can't move and so you're unless you can this problem. Quick which grant glenn greenwald. Yeah he can stick Ill it can't stick. And so you so what you have is one side your face just sags like about a half inch and you see people that have had it and the one side of their faces sagging and it's really a and they don't. There's no real cure say. What do you exercise ways do next. Yeah what do you do to fix like. They're put electrical stimulation to keep the muscles. Go and there's all kinds of things but there's no real cure. It's just you have to be. I don't know how the adam and john overton adam john. My sister's friend works as an mri technician earlier this year. Mri technicians were seeing. What looked like a lot of positive breast cancer results so painful biopsies were ordered and they kept coming back negative after a while. They realized that people who had had the vaccine. We're getting false. Positives from the technicians. Essentially the vaccine made it look like they had breast cancer. My understanding is that the mri technicians. Now know what to look for two. They don't order so many unnecessary painful breast cancer. Biopsies out worst and this one. This is another good response if you're thinking of two from a friend of mine so take that for what it's worth from this producer. If you're thinking of taking the pfizer vaccine. I have close close secondhand information from someone who has seen two people go into psychotic episodes three days after the second dose. Both patients are elderly. Neither had a history psychosis. This is third hand info for me so take it was worth only passing it on I think everyone who takes the vaccine has some form of psychosis for sure whether you think you're invincible. Or whether you're thinking you're crazy. I mean either way psychosis there there is. I don't have the clippers new story last night in the bay area and i think it may be similar to what you just discussed Some guy older guy and they don't talk about the vaccine or anything else but this guy shot up aged in his house by himself. Is he wife and kids. But he's older seventies. I think and he shot up the house. He start shooting every gun. He had in the house all every round of ammunition. He was there for an hour. The cops couldn't get in there just kept shooting at at the wall. Dad's going outside and nobody else got hurt or anything but the house is just shot. This shit in the guy claims they'd locked him up in nuthouse. The guy claims you saw us a smiley face that was on the wall coming. I was threatening him. Wow and so he just just emptied every load head. Have pictures of this. Just a wreck has house. The maybe i mean it sounds like some sounds like israeli that same league so it was two weeks ago. That was crying that we need more vaccines in the government. Wouldn't give her more vaccines. No no we're not gonna play favorites with states even though you're democrat. We're not gonna do that. Just lock everybody down again. Two weeks later the vaccine now easier to get than ever before no appointments and needed it many locations in detroit a look. Fortunately people are not showing up a huge concern for the health department. Tweet decision whether they want to get back stated or win it. They will vaccine only for themselves for their family for their community today. During our time at one person just one came into vaccinated encouraged me to come down song coming down. The line. says he's here for a simple reason not only to protect himself but his loved ones like myself and other stuff hanging around my family starting today between nine and five these are the different locations you can go to in the city of detroit to get your back. See no appointment needed. The mayor's team will be taking a close look at these numbers during the next few weeks and as you can see they are already thinking ahead. There's the possibility that there could be more work to bring the vaccine directly to people with the neighborhoods vaccine squad here. Open up your door. that's still it's the way to go open up a you. Did you get your vaccine No yeah one of our one of our producers Came into came in to What airport jfk from people from amsterdam. Yesterday i flew from skip all the j. f. k. after border control and collected my luggage and employees of new york state handed me in new york state travel or health form. She said that. I needed to fill it out and give it back to them. I have flown several transatlantic trips during the pandemic and familiar with that form and the procedure. However yesterday i noticed two new questions. The first asked about travelers vaccination status as in an looking at the form here when we vaccinated two shots from identifies or one shot from johnson and johnson. What's the date and the second details of a covid nineteen diagnosis. These questions made me so angry. That i told the new york state employees. I refuse to answer these questions. My medical records private. None of your business and i received zero pushback about that. That's what she needs to do. I have a copy of that form actually used around the country because as will here shortly Sir honest of dog patch. Kindly sent me a comedy. I will post it in the next newsletter. And i will may be posted on the no agenda mastodon very nice network to cider and it does have a lot of questions about kobe. Let me just a short clip. I'm not quite sure what this was about. Many people are still eager to get the side even in the most unlikely places in chicago. This funeral home giving out doses. I get it. You don't have to go very far this come on. Why don't you come straight here. Also how how can you do. That aren't a funeral homes overwhelmed with dead bodies in this trucks outside and makeshift morgues in everything. Good point nano. Just come on down everybody to fred's funeral home and by the way corden the cdc. You don't need no mass. Nomo also tonight. The director says her agency is looking into changing its guidance on masks especially outdoors and among people who have been vaccinated as more scientists. Say the risk of transmitting. The virus outside is minimal. Oh no idea of the funeral. Home is a one stop shop. Say kovacs one stop shop and you can fill out a will on the way in there you go. That's how we'd run that show we feel out the for Kovic funeral services that we need some work so the candidate is is is really quite startling. And we actually. We had dinner with the former new banker's wife last night. And you know there were. They were surprised. You know the the kids actually in spain one of them and as it seems pretty lax down in the south of spain said he had no idea what's going on in the rest of the year. People are still curfews lockdown. Like bugs and said. Have you even looked at canada. I don't think they really pay too much attention to it is out of control. It is we have a email here from one of our producers. Who's working with the red cross on. He's under the phone bank For the canadian corentin hotels He says people are not being told that if they cannot afford to book a three day stay at a hotel when entering the country they will be sent to a quote quarantine facility which is just another hotel but instead it's assisted by the red cross. Here they will wait for three days for the test results and another three days sometimes more to receive a call from the quarantine officer who works for public health. This is if they have tested negative negative year. Negative six days lockdown negative. They do not have a direct line to reach this person and either to we the food. They're getting comes from a catering company. We do not know what is being served. I get many complaints today. That people have received a cold meal or no meal at all up until the other day they weren't they weren't even any red cross staff at one of the hotels to communicate with only public health. This is not a humanitarian effort by the red cross. This is an arbitrary detention. Red cross has been hired by the government to soften any blowback. They may receive from understandable angry people whose freedom of movement is being infringed. I will be handling in handing in my two weeks notice very shortly as things are only getting worse. I cannot sit idly by. This goes on while the money was nice. No amount of money's worth being part of this insanity side note. The vast majority of the people coming back to candidate at the moment from india. Why do not know but they are flooding into toronto and winnipeg. Now we know it's to infect you ask why so we can point to them exactly mody let them go. We have our weekly oregon hospital rona report from the four hundred fifty bed. Regional hospital By the way they've stopped a reporting staph infection numbers so that's A positive this hospital is in high risk rona zone because of all the supposed ronan cases rights are stooge oregon as four risk levels. Low medium and extreme. We only recently came down from extreme. It will be a long time before we come down again at our surge also note. The mass were not required at the hospital during early ronan thanks to shortages of add up the whole graph here. So here's the latest stats. Icu ninety nine percent full which is target capacity hospital overall ninety three percent which is a little below target capacity for regular hospital business Andy says not. Above numbers reflect our real capacity none of our overflow or surge areas are even open currently total number of covid nineteen admitted one thousand three hundred forty seven. Total discharged recovered eleven hundred and eighty total number of kobe. Deaths one hundred twenty seven the first number that total number of covid nineteen cases admitted one Thirteen forty seven and eleven eighty discharged recovered. Well sounds reasonable. Sounds very reasonable. It sounds like the flu. Hate to say it. I hate to sound like a republican. Or there's no flu cases anymore while there's that to let's just. Let's just stick on calgary florida canada for second. Do you remember the easter The easter servers are being held in the church and the cops came by basically shut him down and the preacher just yelled at him called him. Nazis until the clip. So they came back. They came back during service again. This is a shorter clip in the first time but they came back the same lady the same cops with guns with new fully uniformed Two of them with the with swat helmets on and here is the good preacher other registered can. This is sweet. You so you haven't wrong. You gotta do homework first before you come okay. You have a wrong to by looking like i just wanted to be out today. And then at least explain the order seventy order and then we can start at the back. No no you can contact my lawyer. Okay my lawyer takes care of this. It'd be interesting to listen to any word you have to say. I do not cooperate with gestapo. I do not like us. He's like sides. That's what you are brown shirts of or nazi gestapo communist fascist. I do not call up to my lawyer. You're not allowed here. You're not welcome here off. And i'm not going to cooperate with apple like y- okay. So he's not enough for. You talked a little bit about the order. I'm not interested in at least have a conversation. I'm not interested in talking. Stop was doing you coming to you coming to the placement. He's about to lose it to intimidate harass. I can make an appointment lady. Listen to me. We can make i day. I four days daily. Not days not doing the jags states. Peci backs off walking backwards. Electron on have a good day walking backwards you sick. That's what you rightly so you change uniforms to black because you're exactly acting like the gestapo all. Yes yes yes yes. Uniforms to black. I love that guy. Patty get definitely has the point of view. One of our producers did a big commercial for for the forthcoming Vegas reopening of a hotel there and our producer gave me little. Rundown of the bonanza when it comes to covid in entertainment and production till this. You'll like this because men again were missing out on an exit strategy. Here's an example of how much money is being made in the covert. Bonanza commercially did had a three million dollar budget so in order to do this not only. Is there testing every two days. We have a covert compliance officer. Covert coordinator a. P. p. e. kits for every crew member which are twenty dollars per kit. Which is a face mask gloves and small sanitizer of thirty dollars. Mandatory pcr tests. They won't accept any other kind of testing has to be pcr. And there's a hall monitor. Who walks around set tells you to put your mask on. And he's not six feet apart long story short three million dollar budget. Three hundred thousand dollars spent on cova testing and personnel. No one got sick. Ten percent of the budget. Manza to waste money. Bonanza nuts and while in central london saturday have thousands of course once again took to the streets protesting the lockdown in northern ireland. They tightened it up a little bit and Have added some additional issues. No dancing or live. Music will be allowed when pubs reopen outdoor areas dancing. like footloose. can't dance because the rona road. We know singing either. By the way when you dance the rona jumps off the onto other people. Oh jeez the troll says it was almost a million nocturnal run. A program says it was almost a million people in london. Yeah you know. It's not like that was reported anywhere. Just a couple of youtube videos. Were twitter style. This stuff gets reported. It's really pathetic it is it is G and i think that's about all that i've got for the rona today. They have one leftover. We have vaccine hesitancy that we know and It's the republicans fault so that's why the logical conclusion is when you know we're going to start seeing people die as they do and it'll be blamed on republicans and they'll be calls for the governor's to say stuff and it's just going to continue with this Idiocy they have no shame. Yeah you have to j. and j. as back national public radio report on the return of the vaccine. If it's anything that we haven't discussed go shortlist taking a look. It's race started distribution of the johnson and johnson vaccine federal health authorities gave it the green light julie chang for member station k. q. e. d. has more from san francisco on friday the fda the-they lifted the recommended pause on the use of the j. vaccine but bay area counties have yet to restart distribution of the single dose shot. Meanwhile down south los angeles county told vaccine providers they may resume administering j. and j. doses if they provide updated factsheet to recipients julie chang from member station k. q. e. d. What do you think is going to happen now. Is now that the vaccine hesitancy spell has been broken and people do not want to get it anymore. There worry screwed up they screwed up this yes. So what are they going to panic. Been in what are they going to do. Besides tell us they're going to do some sort of a reset a great a great reset and not the great one but the sort of a reset debt means a vaccine. They gotta get somebody it. Take this stuff I think the report. I saw this morning that clip because it was too late but the one. I saw this morning where they're starting to soft pedal. Everything always a mistake. You're going to start to backpedal on. Well we shouldn't have taken on the market off. The market was just too cautious. That's the way this'll be the messaging ideas or employ us you employees I would say we screwed up. When we took the johnson and johnson vaccine off the market. It turns out to be the safest of the group we. It was an abundance. They have to use this term and they've already used it abundance of caution. That's how much we care about the public and and these vaccines if there's one little thing we'll take it off the market but now it turns out that we should have taken that one off. We should've taken it can't ticket. They're unbelievably safe. These things. it was a screw up. And they're going to have to go with that and it just pound at home for a couple of days and get people back on track already too late. I mean isn't isn't the typical way to shame people into it. Isn't that what they're much better at. And to say you know. First of all. I think that it would be best to shame the red states. Jeff shame it doesn't matter. What the numbers are you already you pay. You've already played the clip showing that. That's what they're doing already right. So but wouldn't they just continue with that. I mean i don't think they can go back and say we all. We were too cautious. Nah i think something because this this this bad message that went out there is poisoned. Well well the pump the water out and put some new water in if i know these These folks and they are old school and they are behind the times on marketing. I think they'll try some some shit at the oscars tonight. Maybe they'll vaccinate. Robert deniro on stage or something i mean. That's that's where i'd be looking for it. No that would be dynamite. We'll see we'll do what we're going to watch the oscars we can stomach. I wanna watch to see who wins as the best director warsi. If that chinese woman gets this is hollywood. This is a turning point. Wait a malley. Wait a minute what What chinese woman. What movie nomad land. Don't anyone watch that i've watched. Dynamite is an excellent movie. it's on i think is on. I'm sure lou was going to say. I'm sure i'm sure it's not from a traditional studio which will piss everybody off. No it's like it's searchlight. slouch studio okay. But but it's you know it's a and one of the lowest spinoff things that they get to render physician themselves as independent spirit award movie. I'm guaranteeing a point eight rating in the demo. All the rating. Forget it and you won't be an asterisk. i dunno. i think. I'll do a point. Eight in the probably do. I'm going to give them five. Point five million viewers total. Just write it down. Write that down. That's put me down for five point six. what is this is. let's go back to this woman. This woman zhang bursar last name and she she wind. She's won everything. Nomad has been sweeping. What's her name chang. I donald trump. You can look it up or something to chat room annot She is they won. Best movie for the golden globes. They won independent spirit. They won the bafta. All they're just everything and but did we played the clip. We played the clip about her about a month ago when she after she won in the chinese. Such is the greatest thing since sliced bread than dug up an old. You remember this Dug up an old things she said in two thousand thirteen were. She's the chinese government lies right. I do remember that khloe. Here's a name chloe chloe. 'cause y'all y'all jacques-louis she. We played at old clip. But it's not important to just reiterate associate the chinese once. They got a hold old tweet. They decided that the she's now she's been erased from all. Oh so she can. She can't win she. She cannot win if she's anti. Then that's that won't do. So here's the issue She's been winning everything. But now we got the oscars and we also know that. Hollywood in the chinese are in bed together because of all the money they have in the you know the hollywood just about the money. What's going to happen if she doesn't win. But meanwhile is the old school of people that are in the academy. These old farts a lot of them. They don't like china necessarily don't like the way things are going. Are they going to get enough votes to get her the award. This is a big data. Minute wait a minute. You telling me that that the academy awards done by fair vote and actually held him as being rigged in this bullcrap but did they have to make a decision. Are they going to give it to her or the one that one out they have is the chicago seven movie which by i haven't seen it but by all accounts it's not very good but it's you know but it's black lives matter. Could there you go. that'll do it. You could give them the award and they don't feel so bad about not giving it to the movie that should get the award which is nomad land. And it's it's no-man's-lands a good movie. I've only seen a couple of movies. Recently no madeleine. That i saw a paradox. Zillah felt he sees moving history. Ccp's china's communist party's top propaganda body or state media outlets to downplay upcoming oscar ceremony according to the epic time. So that means that they're worried that she's gonna win it all in. Yeah well. this'll be a very interesting. I hadn't. I'm glad you're on hollywood's china problem in ongoing khloe. Zhao contra controversy. Ooh this'll be fun. This will be fun to watch. Who's hosting this. Do they even have a host or were they doing not gonna just say who knows whether i bet you. It'd be great if she comes on and she gets the award she goes. China is great. But that i'd like to thank you for your kurds.

Whoa whoa whoa. Whoa whoa man is a lot of. Whoa whoa woes. We've got the archive but but it comes from this. It comes from segments very short segment You know right now There's movement going on again about january six About the election in fact I have a clip an a minute. About what the audit that's going on in arizona But for january six january six commission. I think president president trump former president trump said that He felt that antifa should also be looked at as As possible bad actors in january six event and This is how that went down on the chris. Hey show he wanted to include antifa and the fact woah woah woah. He wants he wants. He wants to january. Six commission to include black lives. Matter is it's a double whammy this one. What an idiot. He's literally combining antiques. I am black. Lives matter without even knowing it at. I was taken aback by that this to him. Black lives matter and antiques the same thing. Yes yes wow and the fact that gets paid. This guy gets pay well over a million dollars a year. Maybe maybe more maybe even more. And but not as much as rachel motto. Who had this to say about the ongoing audit of the ballots is in maricopa county. But maybe all of arizona Which believe it or not. There's word now that actual watermarks may come into play which would be pretty funny. If true certainly months after after the proclamation and lack of thousands of sealed indictments so rachel motto was very very upset about this very upset that anyone's counting ballots. I'll tell you this arizona's like i said. I did not expect to be seeing to be covering again tonight after we covered it last night. It is obviously strange it's laughable in lots of ways but The president former president trump put out a statement today. Lauding this and talking about how this was going to reveal the truth of the twenty twenty election and citing a whole bunch of other states that are also going to now. Do this reveal the truth of the twenty twenty election and he's still maintaining this fantasy that he somehow one that joe biden isn't really the president anymore he's not legitimate president what the republicans are doing here. This process by which they are bastardising the actual secure election from november twenty twenty and they're going to produce some results that says that it was some other fraudulent thing will be used by the trump part of the republican party and the trump right to cast doubt on the two thousand twenty election among their most fervent supporters in a way that none of their failed lawsuits in the past have been able to. They got the actual ballots and they handed them to conspiracy theorists who say that on the mastermind or whatever. It is really. What is your clip of that That stopped they need to use. This up gets better gets better. Hold on it gets better the actual balanced. I can tell you a great. Can you start to clip over there. A little thing. She said there are very beginning. That i wanted to. Just you got your. I get it right all right. I'll tell you this. Arizona started like i said i did not expect to be seeing to be covering tonight after we covered it last night. It is obviously strangest laughable in lots of ways but The president former president trump put out a statement today. Lauding this talking about how this was going to reveal the truth of the twenty twenty election and citing a whole bunch of other states that are also going to now do this to reveal the truth of the two thousand twenty election and he's still maintaining this fantasy that he somehow one that joe biden isn't really the president anymore. he's not the legitimate president. What the raiders. Owner republicans are doing this process by which they are is now. I think we should be calling. Joe by the illegitimate joe biden. Illegitimate president joe biden. She say that listen again this fantasy that he somehow one and that joe biden isn't really the president anymore. He's not the legitimate president. Republicans are doing here this process by which they are bastardising the actual secure election from november twenty twenty and they're going to produce some results that says that it was some other fraudulent thing will be used by the trump part of the railway and the trump rate. Oh wait for listed on the twenty twenty election among their most fervent supporters. In a way that none of their failed lawsuits in the past have been able to do. They got the actual ballots and they handed them to conspiracy theorists. Who say that you know he went on is the mastermind or whatever it is that stopped. The they need to use to stop the steel. And i mean the craziest parts of the pro-trump conspiracy theory world have the actual ballots are going to declare that something. Different happened in election in the election and arizona. Then what really happened and that will become a lie that they try to live on and build on for a long time to come watch. This is ridiculous story. That will become very dangerous. Dangerous in the long run it will become words. Would when she what does she mean when she says. They took the ballots and gave them to customers spiracy theorists. Well i guess that's just who they name names. I want to know who these were. They get the ballots in were these conspiracy. Theorists that somehow received the balance. I wanna know well she rambles about jack. Shit this woman and there's a lot of things bubbling e kind of around this. I mean this weird stuff happening so you know. It's almost like a little rewind pulling the string back a couple of months and all of a sudden we get this new developments in the criminal case against maxwell she's charged with aiding and conspiring with deceased sex offender. Jeffrey seen in the alleged sexual abuse of four underage girls between nineteen ninety. Four two thousand four maxwell was arraigned today in a new york. Federal court on a new eight. Count indictment and this happens. I think the same day. Or a day. After the daily mail in the uk publishers pictures of delay maxwell and jeffrey epstein in the clinton white house hanging out these had not been seen before but just to make it. Crazier lynnwood was. Add some conference which i didn't know about but i've seen a couple of different people now on a on video speaking there. We are fear unmasked. I think was this. And there was a stage. And a lot of people there a lot of seemingly quite normal looking people and lynnwood comes out and lays this down which dr rachel maddow up all. I'm not afraid to talk about it. Dave accused me of being a non conspiracy theorists. Why because they're telling you that i'm a bad messenger. They're trying to attack me because they can't attack q. Q. is the truth. This is god's sake sin this videotape. Send it to hollywood. Hey clay send it to the house of windsor senate. Bill gates turned damn a luma naughty. Let them hear the truth. And whatever they do i do fear them at. Oh cindy to the vatican send it to the politicians that clinton's the obamas the biden. The bushes sings those people because they are involved. The trout sex trafficking time to go live. Adm it was big. And i actually cut down some of the applause. It was so long just like normal people now and then look nutty but he was when he was saying and hans nutty he do. This like sword gesture like do a q. Like zorro only a very interesting. I got to watch that whole thing. I've got to see what's going on. Just send me a link. You never know could. hey yeah. Crazier things have happened. Crazier things have happened either. Put the two of a rachel maddow on that guy in a cage match. Go have joe rogan. Do the color that will be fun. Wouldn't it right all right. Let's talk we do have to get a couple of these clips out of the way i do have the i will because i have a question to ask you This is the bush. The biden clips the Legitimate biden clips of afghanistan. How yes yes. Yes yes dr as you care from lascaux but let's play biden. afdc one. When i came to office. I inherited a diplomatic agreement duly negotiated between the government and the united states and the totally bon all. Us forces would be out of afghanistan by may one twenty twenty one just three months after my inauguration. That's where we inherited that commitment is perhaps not what i would have negotiated myself. But it wasn't agreement made by the united states government and that means something keeping without agreement with our national interest. United states began our final withdrawal begin. Began it on may one this year. That's when we'll begin. Yes oh yes. But that's a lot different than a couple of weeks ago and he says i'm not gonna do this because trump agreed to it. We're going out on september eleventh. That's what he said mistaken. No but he's still may start on may and then be done by a lot different than i'm not doing anything on may so what changed guy. What changed what changed but changes some legal eagle in a to look. We agreed to this. English signed off as a us government. We have to do. And i may i. I did get code. There was a code about this event. The came through on the media. Type code three. Sorry and we go. Selection of thirty. Three relics from ancient afghanistan are being returned to the country after being seized from a new york dealer. Authorities say was one of the most prolific smugglers of antiquities sculptures and other items from the second and third centuries aren route to kabul where. They're expected to go on display at the national museum. The thing museum where many artifacts destroyed by the taliban in two thousand one the afghan ambassador to the us as these items are returning to people who cherish their past and she doesn't expect the taliban if returned to power they would dare to destroy them. How about this so first of all you throw a thirty three in there. Were paying attention. So we're paying attention. They send the thirty three artifacts back. They start the withdrawal on the fifth. The taliban comes in smashes them up boom. We lock it down again. Sending ten thousand more troops that would be easy d- italian for one thing you. There's a there's a couple of things in there as to what she says. The afghan afghans like these things that are taliban wouldn't do. The taliban are afghanis. They've start with that premise. Right to they're the ones that are tearing the place up and so they're obviously don't have that much respect for these artifacts. Okay maybe there's something up you're right thirty three. Yeah but let's go to with biden not conduct a hasty rush to the exit. We'll do it we'll do it responsibly. Deliberately and safely and we will do it. In full coordination with our allies and partners who now have more forces in afghanistan than we do. And it's all yvonne should know they attack us as we draw down. We'll defend ourselves and our partners with all the tools at our disposal. Our allies and partners have stood beside his shoulder to shoulder afghantistan for almost twenty years. And we're deeply grateful for the contributions they have made to our shared mission for the sacrifices they've born. The plan has long been in together out together. Us troops as well as forces deployed by our nato allies and operational partners will be out of ghanistan before we mark the twentieth anniversary of that heinous attack on september. Eleven while he's kinda back to kind of back to september eleventh there. Yeah so we starts in may and then we'll be done. You know the other thing is i. I i i have to say during the entire. I don't care if a hated trump but there was no terrorism from the middle east. We didn't talk about september eleventh constantly. Like bush did and we just is just was a different world and then you know in our back to normal this is the new normal the normal old normal the all normal. And it's just it's like a head shays disappointing disappointing. And it's it's very distant repetitive. It's boring it's boring part. Three the main argument for staying longer as what each of my three predecessors have grappled with no one wants to say that we should be in afghanistan forever but then insists now is not the right moment to leave in two thousand fourteen. Nato issued a declaration affirming that afghan security forces would from that point on have full responsibility for this country's security by the end of that year was seven years ago so when will be the right moment to leave one more year two more years ten more years. Ten twenty thirty billion dollars more. A truly. We've already spent not now. That's how we got here in this moment. There's downside risks the same beyond may i without a clear timetable for departure. Did he say thirty three years and say did he no. I don't think so again by ten more years. Ten twenty thirty billion dollars more. Surely we've already spent thirty now. How we got here. And this thing is in this little spiel. He goes on about his predecessors and not had the guts to get out except for him. Trump made the may first deadline. It was trump to said. We're getting out on. May i did. He gets no credit for leaving. Biden's gonna take you know. We got. I got i got us out. There's begin downside. Risk to same. Beyond may i without a clear timetable for departure if we instead pursue the approach were america. Us exit is tied to conditions on the ground. We have to have clear answers to the following quenches. Just what conditions require to be required to allow us to depart by what means and how long would it take to achieve them if they could be cheese at all and what additional cost in lives and treasure. I'm not hurting any good answers these questions. Why is the president asking the american public these questions. Give us answers joe. We don't want to. I don't know why. I don't know what the answer is. That's why you were elected. Give us some answers to take some action so talking us so annoying now. He did do something very interesting. Which trump did not do. But i think this may have been an error on his part biden said he recognizes the the armenian genocide. Yes now this is a big deal. And and i concur that that was genocide trump if you recall never said genocide but he did say very specifically that the ottoman empire killed over a million and a half people The armenians but he he would not call it genocide. And i think that's probably because of what's happening now is air to one and turkey are pissed off. Don't know if do we knew this was going to happen. That's why nobody had the guts to do it. I think joe just be thinking just think it was a mistake. Well it's not. He's not gonna do much. That's a that's this level of mistake. He had the be told to do this or somebody or he always wanted to do it ever since he was a little kid. I don't know but he definitely did it. And so now okay turkey. Now we're gonna see what happens because turkey does not like this. This accusation te. Now what do you think they'll do about it. I mean where are we vulnerable right now. Who were they in bed with in bed with russia. So maybe it's trying to poke the russian bear. I it's weird man. Yeah i thought it was all year. it's weird. i have another clip biden clip. If you want to move on okay do you have any anymore. Biden's i have one but it's an old from one thousand nine hundred or so well. Let's play that it's always fun. This is. I've been waiting for the right moment to play but here it is. This is biden around nineteen ninety talking about packing. The court's president roosevelt clearly had the right to send to the united states senate in the united states congress a proposal to pack the court. It was totally within his right to do that. Tv violated no law. He was legalistically absolutely correct. But it was a bonehead idea. Yeah twenty actually could talk with the fluidity. I guess there was a couple of things going on. There was the global climate leadership conference which was hilarious as the put a picture. I don't know if you saw the picture. He has a newsletter course. The world leader with a mask on the yes. Everyone does all these world leaders in this in this zoom meeting. Whatever it was and one of them is wearing a mask. And that is you know who also Everybody had their flag in the background. We didn't there was no. Us flag behind blow johnson. Yes somebody else spent. Wizard is hours very annoying. So i'm not sure if this was before or after but i happen to know that this is a lie and i don't think anyone clued in the president or maybe even the white house doesn't even know what's going on in new york. I mean there's a of traveler. I've traveled eight hundred thousand miles distance being vice president not traveling millions of miles around the world of almost to every country in the world if i blindfolded someone and took them at two o'clock in the morning into the airport in hong kong. And said where do you think you are. This must be america's a modern airport. If i took him blindfolded you took to the laguardia airport in new york. You must think. I must be in some third world country. I'm john joking. Apologies for the one channel Laguardia airport just got a multibillion dollar upgrade if you look at the pictures of the new terminal is beautiful. Yeah it's beautiful on the we talked about this on this show from. I think good lesbian or somebody in new york was telling us that they're they're putting pushing the repairs and fixing and the modernisation of laguardia during the right because they don't have to worry about union strikes or anything like a some sort of a scanner. Some connection because what was it the school union or some top five months ago. He that clip. But i looked it up. Go look at the at the pictures of the new terminal laguardia airport. It's beautiful. i mean it's not a third world country. no but that clip. that's not a debt clip. Sounds like older. A joe biden from two or three. That's what i thought so. That's what i thought too but it was. It was listed in the stories as as what he said on wednesday. Sound like if you heard these clips. Greg's ohi agree and what i'm thinking. Is this the double because there are different energy levels with the president very different energy level. How do you think there's a double that has a different energy level. They got a guy. Okay anybody listening out there. Couple of shots and morphine into the double. Yeah knock him back a little bit. Slower loam down a bit williams. He's a little or any can barely walk walk of a guy looks like he's going to fall over. You need to do some work on that So let's go to the climate Conference the the world leaders. Why they're called leaders. I don't know but luton. We elect leaders. I guess instead of representatives they'll call them rulers dwelled barely barely. Don't bow joe was up. It's vital for all of us to show that this is not all about some expensive politically correct. Green act of Of of bunny. Hugging put it with bunny hugging driving at friends and colleagues and this is about growth and jobs and i think the president was absolutely right to stress that i want to leave you with the thought that we can go back from this pandemic by building back. Green up your free Bunny hugging what. The hell is ghani hugging. I'm not familiar with this term. I like it. I think as i tree hugging major greedy. The wall street journal reported on on the big climate conference and man. We are from the future only a little bit. We call it on the last show around. People also talked about bringing back cash for clunkers so thousand eight two thousand nine. We had this cash for clunkers program and basically what it is is that it's an incentive to take some of these older inefficient cars off the road jam and we can do that one again. I mean did that ever. Hey yeah all we have to do is go back to two thousand eight can listen old shows from two thousand eight. That's where all this stuff came from him. You know saved or created all that crap And just reiterating it and it's going to pop up after we have we have reverted not just a twenty sixteen. We've reverted all away. Two thousand eight. Yes set reset the two thousand we have. And here's proof will go back to What is this. This is the year. Well this is twenty seventeen but in mind as well into thousand seven. Al gore people are noticing the largest downpour in the history of the uk was just a year ago Last fall and there've been wave after wave of these downpours the sea level predictions and low lying coastal areas. Not least on. The banks of the thames people are now taking into account. I was in amsterdam earlier this week and believe me. They're looking very carefully at this in making this movie i. I went to miami beach. I saw fish from the ocean swimming in the streets of miami beach during the highest of the high tides. That's on a regular basis as john dirty as the fish. Flopping slopping on the streets in miami supposed to believe that the rare moments where there's some some fish on the roads which has happened once every couple of years some making correct me if it happens more often that he happened to be there bullcrap. Well this is now being cranked up in twenty twenty one. Cbs evening news. Every spring the cherry trees surrounding washington's tidal basin erupt in billowing blossoms of pink and white even their monumental neighbors can't compete yes beautiful shonekan neely who has worked this park for twenty four years. Says there's a creeping concern. I've definitely notice the water. A little higher every year due to climate change water levels near the nation's capital are rising faster than almost anywhere else on the east coast title vase in his hit hard because the land here is also sinking every day twice a day the tidal basin now floods at high tide and this walkway alongside the water disappears underneath it as the water starts to roll in where the sidewalk ends becomes. Its own tourists distraction. What's been the impact on the cherry trees themselves so in some areas. We've lost cherry trees. They've been flooded out if nothing is done. Floodwaters could also inundate the memorials to jefferson and martin luther king junior memorial could end up submerged in nine feet of water by the end of this line. Only going to get worse. Catherine malone france is with the national trust for historic preservation. Hit named the title based in one of america's most endangered historic places and recently asked several landscape architecture firms to reimagine the area. Some ideas call for long elevated. Walkways others would relocate entire monuments and let nature take its status. Quo is not acceptable here for a place this beloved and this significant place devoted history facing an uncertain future now in that report they give it away washington. Dc being built on a swamp. They say the ground is sinking. Yeah that's not the same as water rising the groundless sinking yes. There's a couple of things in that report that bother me one. Is this notion that we've heard this before. And they've re i heard it. We did it. You did a whole bunch of clips on this where parts of the world. We have global warming but parts of the world are the temperatures are rising faster year than play sells the tampa the temperature rising faster here. Why is anyone. Spot have these anomalies rising faster and the other one. We've started to notice now. The now we have this report were the sea waters rising faster in the washington. Dc area then. They mentioned they're sinking. But it's rising fash wife. Would it be rising faster. The oceans the ocean. It's it doesn't have spot where it's rising faster and we have the same thing in the earlier report on the same show where all of a sudden now in india they're having all these cases that nobody else is having this is. He's localized bullshit. Is an unbelievable. Here's an example from twenty nineteen about canada and climate watch. Canada is warming up twice as fast as the rest of the world. We had a whole bunch of those. Yeah we yes. A lot of were in the in the special put together But it's that this is not the way this big believers in sciences. What scientific about these ideas. Oh candidates doubling the and there's other places tripling the going up going crazy in these things that should be dead like the mystery spot in. Santa cruz is very weird to go there. As a pet peeve thing. no you're right. The watermelon head was out doing pr and stuff. It's his job and he's going to be the one shepherding at all. And he's he's the money he's the bag man. By the way. John kerry the bag man. Careful he's think he's just oh that's an interesting idea. Oh he's the bag man. Yeah cash sure. So he did a zoom call. Because you know we hate him from such a great quickstart. You said twice gang the net zero. That'd be hard really hard. And i just remind everybody that that will depend on whether or not we have some breakthrough technologies and make for innovations of one. But even if we can't the net zero we still have to get out of the atmosphere. Closest is a science on science. Hey trees screw ya. Science all the plants in the world. What he's an idiot that's climate czar. Of course he's an idiot. Gotta get carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. Get it out. Get it out because it's deadly. Oh my oh. Okay clipper today. How well. I wasn't even expecting that but you should. I should have been on the ready for that one. I appreciate it. I'll take two more to wrap up my bitter. The climate change This is just a throwback thursday of course it was earth day on this earth day president biden at a climate summit pledged to slash america's greenhouse gas emissions in half within just nine years. Yeah to save us from the apocalypse that aoc warned us about who started me to that. Isn't that weird. I mean he. Just that's just like to retz man just throwing that stuff out there The the nine years half and half no problem get carbon dioxide of the air meant they truly want to kill people to take the carbon dioxide atmosphere human right. Now we need to bring this to the attention of the children and the children have to be further indoctrinated. We have a new wave of children. These children longer in school. Then there's still on zoom classes and learning nothing so we might as well go attack them where they are most vulnerable which is on television. So let's go to nickelodeon and let's Let's do a little bit of a little bit of mind controlling here on the young children. Let's combined a couple things here so much fun to do. And let's teach him a new term blacks. Snow that pollutes hokey florida. There's cancer alley which is an area along the mississippi nickelodeon that talk about cancer alley. Which by itself was just. Whoa what are you doing black snow. The that pollutes hokey florida. There's cancer alley which is an area along. The mississippi river louisiana that's lined with oil refineries and air so toxic new york south bronx. That twenty percent of children have asthma. What do these cities have in common. They're all examples of environmental racism. Systemic racism were minority and low income communities are surrounded by health hazards because they live near sewage mines. Landfills power stations major roads in philadelphia. It's hazardous waste in san carlos arizona. It's a mining project that would dishonor and apache sacred site. That's right teach those kids. Environmental racism doesn't get much better now. I think he had the show title right there. Oh i should write that one down. I mean geez it's thick. It's nick news as you'll odeon pathetic viacom isn't it Stop near redstone. Stones daughter willa daughter. Now daughter. I know beautiful. Okay take your dad. Put him on. The list goes on the freedom list. Nickelodeon yes nickelodeon on the list. Put freedom list dot. Io wait a minute. You're supposed to be managing that. Give me the full list of stuff. Every i get stuck with this idea. I'm sorry baby me. Well let's just a couple of other things you want to get out of the way. I like the deny fight in columbus. Ohio where the cop shot one girls get about the stabbing another girl. Who shot one of them. Yes and so. It was a became a big. The big stink was made about that in giving Everyone getting in on the action including everybody on james. And you're your your next so accountability. But there's other stuff that is There's a couple of other people that joined in on this. And i thought this was district columbus ohio knife fight report comes from the epoch. Times guy in that footage. A police officer approaches a driveway. Where a group of people are standing very soon afterwards. A young woman who can be seen holding a knife appears to try to either hit or stab. Another girl who falls to the ground this knife-wielding girl then turns around and appears to try to another girl. That girl right there. The one in the pink. At which point the police officer fires gun and the knife wielding girl unfortunately falls to the ground later now by the way that girl has been identified now by her family members a sixteen year old mci of bryant and according to the columbus police chief investigators will now be working to determine whether this killing complies with the ohio state law which says that deadly force can be used to protect yourself or for the protection of third person. Furthermore the head of the department told reporters this. We have never been able to release video this fast but we thought it was important to share with the community to be transparent about this incident to let them have some answers that we can provide tonight. We know we can't provide every answer but it's important that we can answer some questions tonight now as of right now there have not been any new developments in the case and as you just read. The investigation is ongoing. But there's one thing. I would like to reiterate. The current political climate in this country has people giving you can say very interesting takes on this tragedy for instance a filmmaker over on twitter who has a verified. Blue checkmark road this heartache. Teenagers have been having fights including fights involving knives for eons. We do not need police to address these situations by showing up to the scene and using a weapon against one of the teenagers. Y'all need help. I mean that seriously. Furthermore valerie jarrett who was a senior advisor to president barack obama shiro. This on twitter a black teenage girl. Kaya bryant was killed. A police officer immediately decided to shoot her multiple times in order to break up a knife fight. Demand accountability fight for justice accountability. There it is again kind abilities. Her keyword to knife-fights. If you you start watching the morning shows and all this discussion while they had a social worker they would shot the girl and the social work with a broken up the fight some holiday see the video at all to the even watch it i i did and i said it looks like a bunch of people out of control in this one girl the knife he's gonna stab this other woman. She was mid swing man and another guy was kicking. The girl that went in the head in head also called nine one one and literally said get someone here now. There's these other people who are here. They're trying to stab us and kill my grandmother all so you know there's a nightly valerie jarrett in a bunch of these other people coming out and say well knife-fights that's normal. This is they're they're they're speaking for the black community. This is is the image that they're trying to portrayed at improve the situation. What's that knife fight at. Everyone does these. What's interesting is that is you know knives are completely outlawed in the uk for this very reason because young children young people were killing each other with knives knives. Our big problems still in the uk but not in america s. Just kid play just just because it's normal. It's normal on stabby. Well let's do a little bit of black lives matter stuff than while we're at it just quickly. A couple articles Tokyo olympics According to this is interesting according to the o the international olympic committee taking the need for black lives matter will not be permitted which i thought was the stop them. Well you don't wanna mess with the ioc. The us they are. This is their show. He you don't do that okay. You know what you're right. we'll see. it'll be very much. Probably like the a a callback to the was it the ninety seventy four olympics. When did we have the the black power fist raise. But though is sixty eight olympics dayton's awhile ago the longtime ago Patrisse cullors colors. Cu l. o. Ourse who is one of the founders of black lives matter who moved onto a new Truly a sponsored by chinese communist party to documents not bashful about. She has a new nonprofit. She's moved on from black lives matter which she also was was good and timely as we found out she owned several homes Some in the multi million dollars at least more than a million dollars by very uncomfortable.

A really it's obviously up land where they put the Look the little tomatoes something or other in their barbecue sauce which is vinegar based We both have clip. That works together a play mine. I know california and a high profile entry into the potential recall race for governor there. Caitlyn jenner says. She's throwing her hat into the ring. As a republican candidate to oppose democratic governor gavin newsom. Who's facing a recall. Effort from some residents that are pretty unhappy with his running of the state during the pandemic. This is such a truly great american story. That's great. I mean it's just so many minds get warped and twisted and don't know what to say and don't mind a more warped and twisted mind to get twisted and bill maher's report on this same topic about this for news. Caitlyn jenner is running for governor. That's exactly what it's like with. I'm just gonna say democrats and liberals someone started clapping. Found out he or she was the only one people laughing the person wilted away about this for news. Caitlyn jenner is running for governor. Anyone not clapping is clearly a transphobic. Finish my home monologue on. Take that one back. I know you think of her as a reality show star but come on people change. She is trans rested and ready. I mean she's got. She's got a great slogan. Take the sack out of sacramento. Because this is only happening because our governor. There's a recall which is stupid but we're probably going to do it california. We'd do stupid things like wow nothing stupid about a reno. That's why he's a california. I think maybe from back east but is one of the few states that allows this because there's plenty of people that need to be recalled now and again and it's a great mechanism to have at your disposal to get rid of people and he's thinking it's stupid. What is wrong with this guy a lot but what's wrong with ignacio back. Do more transphobic jokes. Paul jojo laugh riot. It's really interesting. Big liberal some liberal. I dunno get a personally. It's a brain freeze for them. Because here you you can't you can't even even look wrong at a trans man or woman without being excoriated. But it's okay if that trans man or woman is a republican hockey officer republican. They're fair game. I mean doesn't that just show. How sad and pathetic it really is. That's the part that i just need to highlight man's cheese kitchen. Get your story straight. The neuro donal. What's on her mind now to what could be a seismic shift in how the pentagon handles sexual assault and harassment complaints within. Its ranks just his salt sexual assault. Sexual say hustle. She says sexual assault soul the soul out of what could be a seismic shift in how the pentagon handles sexual assault and harassment complaints within its ranks. Who just plowed right through. It didn't stop ellen. De gem didn't stop at all. Now this'll be my last kind of important clip. I did want to get it in here. As we have a lot of amps joining the show as our asia millennial producers. We love you amps. We got him in the chicago area for sure You have a home here. No agenda nation. You always have of course except now we have to identify you as such. Because that's what that's what the left of america wants and of course we have anti asian hate which is the term. You can't just say asian hate. You can't say racism. It has to be anti asian. Hate which to me is even inc is grammatically correct because if you hate anti asian hate then just sounds confused. What you're saying is anti asian hate people who are anti-asian. Yes that's me. that's the way chromatic. I think that's what it means. But there's a couple things in this report. Number one is pay attention to where this anti asian hate is taking place. And then obviously you'll find out who was the catalyst and why this is happening a us. Think tank says about one. Third of asian americans worry could become victims of hate crimes. This follows a series of violent and discriminatory incidents mainly in new york and california. Where many people of asian descent live in new york on friday a sixty one year old man of chinese descent was pulled to the ground and his face was repeatedly trampled. His attacker had approached him from behind. The victim was severely injured. The pew research center carried out the survey of three hundred and fifty two asian americans aged twenty one or older eighty one percent of the respondents feel. Violence against asians has increased since the pandemic began. Thirty two percents say. They're afraid of being intimidated or physically attacked. The think tank cited several respondents. Saying the discrimination violence was fuelled by former president. Donald trump off the pandemic. So it's happening in new york and california but it's trump's fault okay why come on pew pew pew trump hugh pugh you can do better than that pew pew trump one last clip. But i don't think we can push this off and we have to push off one more thing. I have to remind us everybody out. There is listening. You're hoping for the best we have to push off the second half of the show and the dead cow is and all the rest of the alien stuff that we supposed to be talking about.

This is this is a this is a stop in cock your head like a dog moment. And that's what i did see was sitting on the couch with me which took at. I think the shock of it was what kept me from kicking her physically on the couch and see just kind of went on like it didn't happen nothing say like like it just didn't happen so But the more. I sat there the more the more i would sure i can. I can imagine cause me is the polite polite say we have seen the inward shor in so I to excuse myself from them for the rest of the night to keep from a treating her an adult sure but the the the weird part about it was like one if you if you said it and you didn't mean to say it The fact that we all pause hard pause when you said it should made you say oh shit what did i say yeah. I'm sorry because that's what i'm used to when people say the bear That they think might have offended you. Yeah is right away. i'm sorry. I'm so sorry i didn't mean to say that or at the very least what did i do. What is it exactly if you're unaware that you've done something wrong. What did i do. Is there a problem with that by the way we have. We have a recording of you. excusing yourself. Excuse me while. I whip this. And then he retired to his man cave so saturday sunday sunday morning. Rolls around Me and my girlfriend talked about it overnight but sunday morning rolls around and she was trying to decide where see what the fit into the conversation because her instinct is to protect but see that want to protect her per se. Well i mean protect from physical harm shore that's protecting from from consequences of your words in a so she They for the girls finally get up. And so i asked her the question you know like what does the word colored mean to you and she went silent and i'm on the couch so she said it when i asked her the question it was like b like her you in the kitchen see walked by behind that television so i couldn't see her immensely finally came to the kitchen table where her phone and she was best for her fall and i was like do not sit you. Sit there not addressing. This is not helping you as like so. You know you're not saying anything right. Now is the worst thing that could be Did he get back. No that was that was not him in a white woman tears. Jason is Jason will not be joining us tonight. The kid is screaming the internet connection. So damn man he's he's he's gonna try resetting everything but he's not sure why is his one gig. Fiber internet is having issues but it clearly was the audio was garbling which we've not had happened with him before Go on so like you know. What does this word mean to you. That like she sat there like he was catatonic for about twenty minutes crying. It was like we need there. Needs to be an answers. Yeah the i mean the there are way too many Options where women and girls will go to crying as when confronted with something because they're uncomfortable and if they cry then you'll be uncomfortable and then maybe it'll all go away and this is not one of those circumstances the those tears do not work with like if somebody died. I will show you some compassion. If you're moved by something in the movie i will. I might teach you about it. But i will understand it. But when we're in the consequent mode and you cried best it does not say yeah well if it would have been with. I'm so sorry. I can't believe i said that's another thing but to just completely shut down thirty to forty five minutes before that. Wow yeah and. I still got an explanation. Those who why she thought that was okay. I thought that was okay. Because i'm like you said it and you can't move in so that tells me that you thought it was okay to say you you're going to just slip it in and it was gonna be it was okay for you to say it so we still. I still haven't got an answer as to why where that came from right and so So that was what i said. I said you guys a message like is it. Okay put this bitch out for again. It was it came out of nowhere. And i'm like. I don't know what he's talking about so i don't wanna guess but That was That was my saturday. eat them my easter If you get a chance you got kids so there's probably be a while before you do this but we did go to the jack london state park which is up past the noma. I saw that. I thought you're on the old town road. My friend my friend. Milton said i was going to get killed. Like in the hills. Have eyes char But if you get a chance to go up there to the ruins of his ranch It is a beautiful phenomenal. It was like a fifteen thousand square foot ranch house. Wow made out of stones Ended up burning down And they didn't get a chance to redo it but what they did. The stone portions of what they did is still intact. It is just gorgeous. It's only it's only about a mile hike to from the museum portion. Which is the house that his wife actually lived and died in after him Is only about a mile hike. This like moderate height. Yeah well the two year old we can make walk that far. the The one the one month old probably gonna have to wait a few months before he's even able to. He's going to have to be able to hold his head up. Yeah in order for us to pack them in and do that sort of thing but yeah. I'm trying get out earlier today. I actually had both kids here at the office which was a child. I was challenging myself to see what it would be and the one month old blasted a huge meli shit just before my clients walked in and it blew out the leg of his diaper a so onto his jammies that he was wearing so it was a full of thank. God i have like a thousand target bags from picking from doing the Order pickups so the crab diaper went into one and then out into the dumpster and his jammies went into the other And he did well after that because he was he was pretty exhausted as one would be And the girl was pretty good. She was she was actually out harassing the The ladies who worked for my landlord was not here. They were they were. They were thrilled with it but It all went pretty well until he decided that he was hungry again. And i was feeding emini. Wasn't eating really great. So like all right. We'll pick this up later and he just went into his I'm going to be quiet. And i'm going to start. And then forty five seconds later full on yale the put jackson's children to shame county l. And then we went home but you know the client chef chef seas from the coming in hot. Podcast was able to record his full hour. We didn't have any issues in that. The issues with the young were before and after and the other one she was just really excited so like she started yelling. She running around outside of the office so it was all good. So that was that was the that was the big challenge Of doing that with kids. And i must say you. You're looking at felt over here. Well i have not eaten real food and seven weeks. It's the medically supervised weight loss program that i'm on. That is the wrong app to look it up. So yeah i've i am I'm down forty three point one pounds in seven weeks and a day. so it's It's been quite a journey. I've been cranky. The there will ever gonna warned us. You'll be cranky The first week. I started getting cranky the sixth week. Because this is chalky the shakes or chalky. The bars are chalky. And i just want some real god damn bought. I've lost forty three pounds in seven weeks. So it's like look. You're getting what you want it. So put your fucking head down and deal with it. Put your head down and deal with it because you're getting what you want it now when they when they went over the program again in our mandatory weekly meeting last week and we're like well the transition back to real food it can be anywhere from six to twelve weeks and i'm just thinking it is not going to be six to twelve six to twelve hours. Now it's probably. I'm probably going to take two weeks to transition back. Just because they're like replace a meal with food will the meal. These these meals are one hundred and sixty calories. And i have seven of them day. So am i gonna start fucking around one hundred and sixty calories of something. I am not so i want to be replacing probably to time and doing it that way. So i'm i'm thinking probably a couple of weeks like that and then going to be going back onto a a. You know clean. Lean protein fruits veggies a situation which worked for in two thousand thirteen. I did really well with that. So that's going to be the continuation to go down through. And i'm probably just gonna eat like whole thirty moving off of that. So yeah it's it's been a journey to do it while the kids will make you run now yet and my goal was said. I'm going to run the five k. Angel stadium next year. And then i found out. It's actually an august 'cause they moved so we'll see if i'm actually in good enough shape an august two run. If i know. I could walk it but i don't want to walk. I don't want to go to anaheim to walk a five k That's just me. i've done it. I've done that race. A couple of times. And it's flat. So i wanna be able to run it so speaking speaking of Speaking of that. I really want to get in to a little bit of baseball. Because these guys they're allowing fans at games but it's a smaller percentage and these guys stayed till the end of the angels game on april second. Look around you still here. Here's remember that oh and they won. So yeah that's what i want. I wanna talk about baseball because it's baseball season. And it's fucking awesome and the angels just wrapped up. I think they're playing now. They're playing the astros the next couple of days but they opened with the white sox and the white sox were one of those teams that did a lot of stuff in the offseason and they are one of the favorites in the american league so to have them come in for a four game series to start. And the angels are notoriously slow starters. They're my team there. Notoriously slow starters. They took three out of four. Oh wow a lot of exciting come from behind games a lot of stuff happening including on sunday night baseball on espn shohei ohtani Was the starting pitcher. He was also Hitting there was no they did not d. h. in the american league though he's a d. h. when he's not pitching so he started the game and hit second for the angels and here's he ended up going out in the fifth when someone slid into him at home plate. But here's what he did before that. Watch tonight as you mentioned alex. The expectations are just enormous eaten. Sit in all three games to start the season two to one. Oh one we are so desensitized to velocity right now but even one it's gotta get everybody's attention One is still going to grab your eyeballs. Institutue split. He followed a one on one with a ninety mile. An hour split finger into the shadow. Unhittable miss that ball by half foot and the reigning american league. Mvp another at one hundred olds off on a hundred one. Gone to start for dylan sears. Bring here he is hitting against shohei to for thirteen with a homer so far on this side of the scorecard i picked swinging four hundred and fifty one foot home. Run into the right field bleachers. Hear that one. Yeah i mean. He absolutely crushed that ball. That all happened in the first inning. Wow that was the first sitting. So it's an exciting time to be a baseball fan at least for my team. Not so much for a red sox fan because they got swept by the orioles And like i said fans are coming back but they are going to require some things before you can. Go to the ballpark for instance. If you wanna go see the san francisco giants at oracle park fan safe their commitment to the fans employees and the reopening of oracle park in two thousand twenty one. They require a negative cova. Test or vaccination proof in order for you to go into the park the non fucking around. They shouldn't be and it's an outdoor venue to. Yeah so all of this talk about. Oh hey you know whatever it's not real it's not going to affect me. I don't need to get vaccinated. Will you do if you want to do stuff. And there's going to be more and more things and people can go well. How can you require vaccination. How can you do that requirement. You put something in my body. Well if you'd like to go to an event they have every right to say are vaccinated and if you're not them you need to pass a cova test right now. I've seen people like os now. We're going with the vaccination Segregation like no. It's that's a self fulfilling prophecy. Yeah i get it right now. Not everybody's had a chance to get vaccinated. Yeah i totally get that as we move forward. Vaccinations or reveal like we mentioned april fifteenth. Everybody over sixteen in california will be able to schedule a vaccination. You cannot send your kids school. If they're not vaccinated. All the anti vaccine is going to hate that. That's i mean that's just the reality of well and they're they're testing right now kids to the if it save what the dose should be all thing. I'm just talking about in general. Oh yeah you know. You can't send your kids school man if you get you can though because there was a bunch of lobbying few years ago by these people who are like well this is this this and that's why we had measles outbreaks and whooping cough outbreaks. And all of this shit that we had erotica -ted because antibac- sers were like well. I don't have you can't make me vaccinate my child. Jimmy maccarthy told me that. Vaccinations cause autism. Jenny mccarthy was a co host of singled out on mtv. She's married to donnie. Wahlberg is she's not an expert on any and then I was going to say something. Oh and like i. I keep saying it. And nobody's listening to me. The next wave of lawsuits. Everybody's talking about lawsuits is going to happen from this vaccine. They going to be like the mess with e leona Yeah yeah but you understand how long it took those missiles. Only commercials come out. The next wave of lawsuits will be from people who contacted covert from an establishment. And if you don't think that this was gonna happen. Look at my track record. All the shit that i've said. Yeah i mean if especially if some place isn't following government mandated protocols. You roll into someplace. That is letting people be too close together. Not making them wear their masks when they're wandering around the restaurant or whatever it might be there is a lawyer. I don't even know this person yet but there is a lawyer right now. That is looking into how he can create a class action lawsuit or that he can get people that will file lawsuits against establishments because they did not follow the covert protocols. I'm telling you that it is happening. And that is going to be the first or the next wave of lawsuits that come out. Those are going to be the commercials that you're going to see an you're going to see them within the next year. I am telling you mark it on your calendar within the next year is going to be happening. You know what's going to happen. It's going to be coming from someone who is an anti vaccine and is going to be come and it's gonna as going to be from somebody like that. It's going to be coming from some asshole. I know for some asshole. That didn't believe it was real right. Oh speaking of which sarah palin welcome to the a sarah palin got covert and then she came out and said. Hey i got cova d- you should wear a mask. This is this is bad stuff. Well where have you been honey. It's been a year and you were one of those people saying. I'm not gonna wear math. Well now you got cove it. But i'll give her credit at least wins. She got covid. She stepped up and said. Hey everybody this is real. You should wear a mask unlike literally everyone at the white house last fall or they got an no but you remember when you were in high school and your teacher would give you some assignment at the last minute and everybody in your classroom you like. That's bullshit i'm not doing this shit. That's fucking bullshit. I'm not doing this shit and then you get back to school the next day and you didn't do it but all the muffler because it said i'm not doing this shit. Did it that you know that didn't that. That was not me. I i would. I would never left that. I don't trust anybody. But that's that's those are those people that's exactly they'll be those people that got. It is like the most workers in florida. They didn't believe it that are now paying santa's do they can get the fucking back say. Yeah it's it's a show. Let's shut down florida. We need to still keep making money but we need to be first people to get the vaccine right Sticking with baseball major league baseball announced on friday that it is relocating. Twenty twenty one all star game and mlb draft which were originally scheduled to take place in atlanta. They have now determined. They will be at chorus field in denver. The decision comes a little more than a week after the passage of sp two oh two. Which is georgia law. That president joe biden criticized saying that it will restrict voting access for residents of the state. Commissioner rob manfred said in a statement that the decision to move the all star game was quote the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport any see. He's not sitting there. But i'm gonna adam to the stream while he walks around As a sport and was made after consultation with teams former and current players the mlb players association the players alliance amongst others major league. Baseball fundamentally supports the voting rights for all americans and opposes restrictions at the ballot box in twenty twenty and it'll be became the first professional sports league to join the nonpartisan civic alliance. Help build a future in which everyone participates in shaping. In the united states we proudly used our platform to encourage baseball fans and communities throughout the country to perform their civic duty and actively participate in the voting process. Their access voting continues to have our games unwavering support. So i'm like all right. That's pretty cool. But now there's fallout ever. There were a lot of people like yeah. Mlb good job but there is fallout in. That fallout comes from the governor of texas. Greg abbott. He is now officially declined. An invitation to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the home opener of the rangers. They'll worried the home over the ranger might be the last game. They have for like ten days because they're going back with full capacity at their state opening day in day. Which is stupid. Major greg abbott. The governor of texas put up put out a same said major league. Baseball has adopted what has turned out to be a false narrative about the election law reforms in georgia and based on that false narrative the mlb all star game from atlanta. It's shameful that. America's pastime is only being influenced by partisan political politics but also perpetuating faults political narratives. This decision does not diminish the deep respect. I have for the texas rangers baseball organization which is outstanding from top to bottom by the way if i hear another republican use words like outstanding for shit. That ain't outstanding. I'm i'm gonna. I'm gonna put him down in the karma column for weapon i am. I am proud of major league baseball because of all of these these sports into these except for hockey. I don't really consider them sports. How dare you they. They have been the the least vocal on civic engagement And i'm not saying that they haven't been doing anything. I'm just saying that they've been the least vocal chur. The percentage of the percentage of african americans a major league baseball is one of the lowest of any of the professional sports. Outside of hockey is But this was a ballsy move in i. I applaud them for for an remember. What i told you guys last year about the brought it up a couple of weeks ago. Citibank did that That study eight point. Six trillion dollars is lost in revenue due to races of these people. All these corporations understands all of these corporations have this study and they understand. How much money did their lose it in this and they are going to bring us together recently so that they can make money if they don't do anything being You can get on board if you're a republican or you can keep fighting what they're going to do but that's what their goal is to get that money and if you know if if this is what it takes i i'll i'll take it whatever way i can get equal out. Yeah it's it's. It's a big decision jason. What what did you think when you heard about Mlb pulling the all star game out of atlanta. Good for them you know. I mean they were. They were quick to do it. Right in the think For anybody including governor dumb fuck it and cremated the mlb make some type of decision off of like information that's not factual or like anything that's really based in that they just decided to make. Just just you know here here say about policy like i'm sorry but they have warriors they have somebody that works the in legal in atlanta for the mlb for the braves knows this information. You get the facts of the situation. They're not making uneducated determination. So i mean yeah good for them and continuing the process of you know. And here's the deal. Georgia didn't have to do shit right. They went through. They made a point of the three recounts. They went through everything. multiple times. There was no voter fraud. None the republicans. Who run georgia from the governor. To the secretary of state stood up go voter fraud. They did the right thing. They did their job. As elected officials and then after a lot of people turned out and sent to democrats to the senate which partially that blame falls on trump via. Suddenly the georgia legislature decides. Well hale we need to do trump than about this. We're going to keep people from bringing food and water and land cute in that like using anything. Yeah well here's the problem in. Here's why they felt like they had to do something because the republican party is a dying party all across the country and the results in georgia are a canary in a coal mine of that well and part of this law they put into place is of the state. Legislature doesn't trust as doesn't trust the votes that came in from certain districts. They can pretty much cancel those votes out there. There's a there's a bunch of bullshit defied texas is another state that's putting to. They're putting the get the laws too. So that's why governor abbott says stepping out because he knows that he's next right But like you but the crazy thing is that the republican party in the nineties were situated to be the progressive party as far as having the first black presidential or vice presidential candidate the first female. Or the i wouldn't have been the first for our candidate for but the first black woman to be on a ticket as far as vice president like they were they were perfectly seated to be be that party and instead they double down on the racist. Yeah the big thing about the republican party is there are way fewer republicans in their art democrats republicans and independents are. Put them together. They are roughly about what. Democrats are in terms of in terms of popularity. But here's the deal. Black people are socially conservative. Yeah so if you and they believe in hard work like well that's not what the is tell me there's that would blue black people are a little black people forgiving. Anybody even more free shipping than any ink. It's not what the race tell me kareem in. They could've carved out bet slice right there in the middle. Sure where they could have been the party. Sure i mean they already have that with a good portion of hispanic voters. They coulda had this same that same but they love being not all of them but they love being racist so bad. Don't you understand. I get it but yeah it was it was it was set up for them to be. Oh my good they just. They just can stop referring to their black friends like. Yeah you know i know. He's a good one even an even president dumb ass the was set up for him to be the best he could have been the greatest president in the history of presidents if he had just win in work with the democrats do infrastructure. Bill got that out i i. We're gonna talk infrastructure. Who look and just moved. All he had to do was rolled down the aisle and he was gold. Big he was set a goal. Is this toilet setup to be as goal is a toilet shit and he fucked it all up. Catch that joke. Jason jason ready for august. Oh yeah bring it on. Baby is big things coming in august. Steve is what i have been doing since january night. All the evidence. I have everything is going to go before. The supreme court and election of twenty twenty is going by by. It was an attack by other country on news coming in. I don't know what they're going to do it after they pull it out. But it's how hey hang on. Hang on john trump office in august. Okay when see bannon tries to say hey. Hey you're talking crazy. This is on steve. Steve bannon steve bannon show. Like don't say colored that's a former crackhead and my pillow executive. Mike lindell with with his new theory. That trump will be back in the white house in august after they take down the twenty twenty election. I can't wait for his case. The court i cannot wait for depositions and discovery in discovery. I cannot wait for this. I don't know what they're going to discover 'cause he crazy. I cannot wait for this shit. He absolutely crazy are so. Let's move on from the my pillow guy. Because you know we don't have a lot of time and he's not worth anymore kid literally. Everyone hates ted cruz yes. I'm guessing his daughters due to after he blamed them for the whole thing. John bainer former speaker of the house. I really hated ted cruz too so much. So that when he went to record his audiobook he couldn't help himself. Freedom means you can be a genius and then new product the make millions of dollars in helps millions of people. It means. you're afraid to work your way to becoming the first year of family to go to college. It means you're free to reach as high as you want no matter where you came from. Even if you're a little kid sweep at a bar out and southwest ohio taken from me. You'll never know where you'll end up. That's freedom raise a glass to that any day. Ps ted cruz. Go fuck yourself. That's to be the new. Go fuck yourself a five again. Well the allies on us podcast have been fuck you ted cruz for for bit. That's theirs said that to jay. Read so he can So we can go out with that if he wants to. Wow yeah by the way the The narration on that audio book fucking terrible a sounds like he was. He had a he had had a couple. You know is he. The one that is Is working for the marijuana industry now. While he clearly was not then because he was up. Tight this uptight this. This is an audio book. Actually going to get. Because i can't wait to read or listen to this guessing that's an out But he he's 'cause he said everybody else was saying about the republican party Like that people just want to be in like they're fucking talk show host but where was all of this is it was developing. This could have and should have been cut off at the knees by the people in the republican party who actually were smart and gave a shit about this country and they let it happen. The figures ran for the hills. Ain't let it happen. Some of them retired. Someone do whatever there was. The tea party started this nonsense. Newt gingrich really started this nonsense. If you want to go back lee atwater who later died of brain cancer because karma catches up with a lot of people yes started this nonsense and it was ladies and then the nineties and then in the two thousands. We got the tea party. And now we've got these fucking morons. I mean i look at members of congress. And i'm just i'm just completely befuddled is to how these people got any backing to run for anything breath so i'm listening. I'm watching the documentary on hbo Yeah also So the three people that are pretty much is is a four people but the three people that are in the one guy who probably is q. Is a fucking asian dude who's playing fucking Like he's a running the art of war on people. Sure this best karate stances out in the woods. This is all mind. Fuck this is all mine. This is the dude this doing this. Well sure and it's and the other is a guy in a wheelchair who's who has like a a birth defect right who the only thing he could do was on his computer all the time. Great so this is the other portion of that he could have done something good with it but this but this is these are the people. And i'm like if marjorie taylor green or lauren bogert. If they actually were asked to spend any time with these people they'd be like fuck no. They would have nothing to do. They would have nothing to do with these people. And these are the people that got you doing all of his crazy shit. Yeah a marta taylor. Green posted a video furthering cross fit and added that that was how she was protecting herself from covid. The that's that's not how viruses work that the way she was doing those those pull ups dope. That was you cannot box. Jump your way away from kovic. Oh we were. Everybody was watching waiting for her to slip off the bar. I didn't even watch. I didn't even watch any. I watch like three seconds of it. And i went. Well this is stupid. I mean she's not even that great at it. I mean good for her and all but whatever what you watch at least ten minutes of the dot just still do. I'll do my best. Thinks thinks that we should do my best. I watched a couple minutes of of matt gaetz who his his under investigation of sex trafficking and when the new york times story came out. Last week tucker. Carlson invited matt gaetz to come on his show and explain what was going on. Tell us what the truth is from your perspective. It is a horrible allegation and it is a lie. Hold on hold the fuck on right. Now tell us what. The truth is from your perspective no motherfucker. The truth is not dependent upon perspective in. Don't bring up. this is my truth. Bullshit that i keep hearing from everybody from oprah to to everybody else now fuck you. There is truth and truth. There's not your truth and my truth. there's the truth. What happened as tar. Had to go off on a little tangent. New york times is running a story that i have traveled with a seventeen year old woman and that is verifiably. False people can look at my travel records and seventeen year old girl girl. Don't get the woman monica until you hit eighteen. See that is not the case. What is happening is an extortion of me and my family involving a former department of justice official on march sixteenth. My father got a text message demanding a meeting wherein a person demanded twenty five million dollars in exchange for making horrible sex trafficking allegations against me. Go away our family was so troubled by that we went to the local fbi and the fbi and the department of justice were so concerned about this attempted extortion of a member of congress. They asked my dad to wear a wire which he did with the former department of justice official tonight so he. My dad wore a wire. Hey if you're if you're thinking of whacking my dad. He wore a wire. I am demanding that the department of justice and the fbi release the audio recordings that were made under their supervision and at their direction which will prove my innocence and that will show that. These allegations are true. They're merely intended to try to lead my family out of money and this former department of justice official tomorrow was supposed to be contacted by my father so that specific instructions could be given regarding the wiring. Four point five million dollars as a down payment on this bribe. I don't think it's a coincidence that tonight. Somehow the new york times is leaking this information smearing me and ruining the investigation. That would likely result in one of the former colleagues of the current doj being brought to justice for trying to extort me and my family. What is the basis of that investigation. What does the allegation that really not. Very clear from these news stories. yeah again. i only know what. I've read in the new york times just went on a fucking rant about how this is related to that and that was related to that. And now you come back with. I only know what i read in the new york times. I can say that. Actually you and i went to dinner about two years ago. Your wife was there. And i brought a friend of mine. You'll remember her and she was actually threatened by the fbi told that if she wouldn't cop to the fact that somehow i was involved in some pay for play scheme that face trouble and so i do believe that there are people at the department of justice core trying to smear me providing for flights and hotel rooms for dating. Who are of legal age is not a crime. And i'm just troubled that the lack of any sort of legitimate investigation into me would then per mute would then convert into this extortion attempt by the way this all started. When bill barr was in charge of justice department. Yes so that was a whole lot of nothing. Then they wound to break and tucker. Carlson came back and had this to say saw matt gaetz interview. That was one of the weirdest interviews. I've ever conducted at story appeared in the news a couple of hours ago and on the certainty that there's always more than read in the newspaper. We immediately called matt gaetz asked him come on and tell us more. Which is you saw. He did think that clarified bunched. But it certainly showed. This is a deeply interesting story. we were following it. Don't quite understand it. We'll bring you find out. No they won't because fox news has not been mentioning. The matt gaetz story at all there are. They're still on hunter. Biden's laptop which by the way i'm told has evidence of matt gaetz impropriety with underage girls alleged that laptop and money do. The story broke after the story broke. The rumor was put out that he was going to retire from congress early right and go to work for newsmax which they've denied. Yeah so that story came out earlier in the day before this historic came up. Yeah fills me. Yeah no definitely bread like a couple days before this all broke that he was thinking about quitting early to be. Because that's what you really wanted to do. Fuck outta here. Do like that okay. Nine away wanted to quit. Now we know just ran for re you literally just ran for reelection. And you're like you know what i wanna to go on tax either. What have you watched. Amanda open. I did not get a chance to. You have to watch that opening this. It is crazier what i need you to do. Is send me a youtube link of the actual thing because it's so all over the place of the resigned watch. It was at the time. I'm on youtube looking for it. I'm like i'm not seeing what. I'm what i'm look what i'm looking to see because it's not quite right. It's like a little clip here. A little there and i don't record maddow so i missed so we're gonna find it as in the thank you because this it all started with a guy who he knew who ran for tax collector county. That story is fucking crazier is. Florida is florida corner on steroids. Yes and eat it. Is that fucking story itself. The way she it's The rock in Mark wahlberg did a movie called painting game. Yes it was terrible that this story is pain. Gain terrible crazy. That's how bad that's how crazy this fucking stories all right well. You mentioned crazy Biden has put forth infrastructure plan. And what's clear to me is one of two things either. Republicans have no idea what infrastructure is or they only understand infrastructure in terms of what would be infrastructure in seventeen seventy six one when the founders put it in the constitution. Because you know they did it was the anyway. Here's a rising star in the party and governor of south dakota with the white house today with all the governors talking about the specifics of this package and i was shocked. By how much doesn't go into infrastructure it goes into research and development it goes into housing and pipes and different initiatives green energy and it really is not an honest conversation. We're having done. Those things are all infrastructure this and if you don't research and plan and put in pipes then you ain't gonna have anything jason's head hurts jason's hitting brain literally exploded the back head there. That is the governor of south dakota. She lives in. South dakota in does not understand how pipes in housing are part of infrastructure. Corral would be very fucking afraid to live in south dakota with this person. Well i mean they. They handled cove it. so well. this meantime in missouri. There were a pair of anti massacres harassing worker. And saying fucking nonsense report. that's fine. jury is wrong. Myers i dude fuck off. That's that's what that's all you do. You take a step back so as not to be threatening with your mask on and just do this fuck off. This continued for quite some time of and then you. You salted me touch me. You'd assaulted me. He wants contemplate. Yeah i'm trying. The law passed this private poverty. We have already asked you to leave multiple time. Darren goes to me care and you can have rested involving me. I some police college poll. Why don't wait cry. A a i love how mad. They got what he called her. Do not call her. Karen youtuber standing outside a business. Hassling an employee about masks. You were asked to leave. And you didn't you kept rambling on with your fucking nonsense about masks causing cancer in viruses or smaller than than fabric. And someone called you karen. And you got upset. You fucking snowflake you fucking snowflake unbelievable thin skin. Fuck nugget late crime. A new man. She puts the q. And karen allen. There's there's a little more. How do you own on film. Get off the property okay. Require you to wear a mask is not violating human rights in any way shape or form. These are two of the dumbest people the dumbest people i've seen on the internet all week. I had a guy at a guy today. And take tock that was talking about. How stupid liberal. How dumb do liberals think they are. Guy was definitely wearing a shirt backwards. Sure maybe you just had. The camera flipped around his. No no no no. It was like the sure you could see right here where it says the my information about the shirt late now. He ended on backwards. Okay leary's bad news. The ban yoga alabama public schools is going to stay around a little bit longer because conservative groups are afraid that it's going to lead to a rise in hinduism without a will that buddhism yep definitely without a doubt that buddhism downward dog leads the hinduism. And then you know transplant like this. Get into the The transcendental meditation like all of a sudden. they'll be doing like the astro. Like the the the what you call when you place yourself elsewhere like when you're sleeping astral projection there'll be an astral projection. It's just slippery slope bro. Lake you into it gets you on all those other things and then then then then economy shows up. It's all over from there. There was a there is a positive group that was done in a prison in one of those states and the prisoners came out better after they did. It's a ten day silent meditation to the point where the other prisoners. We wanna do what they did. So they start believing started leaving the church groups and going to join those people you can do. Both you can do both. Yeah both but you can just do yoga to stretch and exercise. Gonna open your mind up road to those demons. Do the christians came out. Had the governor set down the program because of this shit so we'll also and also because they're thinking about things like they're like wait. We're just being sleeves slave labor in a prison. That's for profit. Rose too much got to keep them. Keep them down with christianity side. You know what i'm saying is and in and if you're doing yoga depending on what you're doing especially doing room yoga. You don't have time thinking about hinduism normally anytime i've done. Any yoga worried about getting into the pos and holding it. Exactly the party quickly. That's that's the biggest. That's the biggest one is like when you're doing yoga and a group. You're you're gonna rip. You're doing it wrong. Yeah you don't wanna be downward dog. And in front of a hot chick and ribbon afar is or or do i mean depends depends on anger.

The Accountability Call #76: Saying Yes and Opening Day

"Hi this is John and this is Chris. We're just two guys in their forties trying to live life to the fullest. And what better way to help us along our pat but this year our goals and ideas with a buddy. The accountability call is our way of helping each other. Stay on the track and keep us moving on down the road of life we. I hope you like it and thanks for listening for it's one two three structure at the O.. Ball Game Hey how are you my friend. It's good to have you with me down here for this edition of the accountability call in San Marcos Slash into Nita's California as we sit here enjoying the sunset and watching. Just you know the waves waves crash here. An instant Nita's at Moonlight beach is a day of fun for us for sure and I can't tell you fun it's been so far. Yeah we just asked your wife before. She left us to do this. podcast in the back seat of her car overlooking the beach. It's good podcast topic for us today. And she said more fun less work and I think we accomplish that in spades today not a lot of work but a lot of fun beautiful weather opening day baseball padres giants would have been perfect for me. If the giants won regardless the pomp and circumstance. It was awesome awesome. It really was. We started the morning guys just to break down. It's kind of a guys day. We got up and we did a nice little workout down core power yoga. Got My plug in for my You know my job. I didn't teach it but we worked out hard showered. They're caught the train the coaster right here Munai beach all the way down to Petco Park had a fabulous. Does breakfast at cafe to to to some of you may remember that at some are loyal listeners. Cafe two to two and then we walked actually got some scooters and scooted it on down to Petco Park on those little scooters that you can just pretty much die on weaving through traffic. That was fun. Went to the game. Padres win two zero short game but really fun. Lots of festivity and stuff. It's just really fun now. We took the train back and we're enjoying. The sunset here tried to record on the beach. Way Too Windy so we're in the back seat of a Honda Civic and that sounds really strange. It's the last time you've been in the back seat of a car. I think very good question I'm not one who likes to be even in the passenger seat driving let alone the backseat. I I have to be in control in those situations so it's been a long time since I've been in the backseat. How `Bout I let you have control now? Grown up now. We talked We've we've had some good conversations about Not only having fun but being appreciative and being thankful foil for for a lot and obviously today we have a lot to be thankful for and and saying yes as well right I mean it. There's so many reasons for me not to come down here to San Diego had US miles to down here I had arranged for you know. Put a little extra stress on my wife to get the kids to and from school and There's there's so many reasons not to do things but sometimes in the moral words of booger from risky business. You just gotTa say what that. And I'm extremely glad that we said yes to this. Even though it's just a quick doc day and a half trip You gotta do that every once in a while. That's what life is all about just saying yes and creating experiences and being grateful for those experiences. Yeah it's a lot of work to plan stuff and make it happen. Sometimes I agree with you finding a way to say yes and and now you wouldn't trade it would you. I mean it it just came together perfectly and yes. There was some hassle and some wherewithal a few dollars and whatever else. Our here is just been such a good time. I'm so appreciative appreciative. And thankful that you did this and we were able to get tickets and go down to see the padres giants game on. I don't know something. We'll probably always remember. Remember that time. We celebrating day at Petco Park. You know really fun. So that's that's what life's about. I think it's just having some experience sharing with others and You now I didn't mention this but my son Keaton in his four high school buddies were two rows in front of us. I didn't even know that's where he bought his tickets. He said I think we're around that section. He comes walking up the steps just smile. Like what the heck. You're right here. So they took the day off school high school seniors and went down to watch the PETCO Park festivities and watch the game name and so that's kind of fun to see. I remember taking the day off on opening day when I was that age and going to Sports Bar and watching baseball talk games having burgers and fries and probably sixteen cokes On Opening Day was really a fun time so this is fun for me and I'm glad you pushed me a little little bit to make this happen and we just did it right. And then there's all kinds of things we could be doing work wise and some other stuff but we made it happen and guys. I just think you just need need to do these. Things every so often and I'm thankful for you for coming down and again just showing my appreciation for forgetting a chance to do this kind of thing thing you know in our life we're so spoiled and so lucky and blessed we forget about that sometimes. We've got the resources to do something like that if you baseball tickets and liberal life in a fun way. It's a good time to be alive even though we've got a lot of political storm going on and everything else it's really a good time to to be an American. In my opinion we've got a lot of things to be thankful for so let's not shoot ourselves in the foot kinda straighten things out here and enjoy what we have and and make it a little better for everybody. Yeah I couldn't agree more. We listen to a really fun podcast last night driving back from the airport in which the guy was talking talking about being thankful and really making a conscious effort to think everybody. That is a part of you know his day and he broke it down to one thing that he really loves and can't live without which is his cup of coffee every morning and he said you know what. There's so much that goes into creating this cup of coffee so much that I have to be thankful for for this Cup of coffee. Be Right in front of me on my kitchen table every single morning and so he ended up kind of writing a book about this and traveling around the world thanking everybody that had something to do with this Cup of coffee and it's just a fascinating exercise that we could really get lost in how many people we have to thank and how many things we have to be thankful for. You know he goes from all right. The person that made mug that the coffees in The person that paved the road that painted the lines on that road that allowed the truckers to ship that coffee. I mean it goes on and on and on and on and you know I think if we if we do that if we take some time to step back and just say how many people were instrumental antle in this happening today. We're at PETCO. Think of how many people. It took to build that ballpark and the train. That we took to get over there the person that invented the lion scooters you know we had so much fun writing those scooters just so many people to thank and so many things for which to be grateful I just think it's really really important to kind of think about those things on a daily basis. And I really believe that if we do that then we start to look for things for which to be grateful a full hand when gratitude becomes part of your life. You're just you're happier always and so that's that's one of the things that I'm definitely taken from this very short trip. There's just being thankful and being grateful for so much that we have in our lives the more people you think in your day the easier it is to get into that gratitude mindset. I guess if you will and you know there's some studies lots of studies even said that shows that if you can get into that mindset the Serotonin levels come up your whoever you say thankful to is appreciative. And their their their mood. buse and then your mood boost because you know you rewarded them when they rewarded you with something it's just it's very nice To be kind and made it a practice right. We're all works in progress and we all need need to work on a little bit more but boy I watched you in action today brother and it was great just to see how you appreciative. You're to others and the kindness. You got back in return you know. It was so genuine that that was amazing so it's really fun. We got our hats from the girl walked in. We said thank you. And she's like you're welcome. You know it's like there you go and sometimes I'll tell you have to say his. Thank you and nothing else just like when someone does something Nice for you just say thank you and you can give a little smile and then we move on our day and everyone is kind of like that was good. That was a nice human exchange. Next was the next one and we seek it out. You kinda gets I don't know he kinda get obsessed with in the next little thank you. Yeah totally and we talked also about accepting that thanks and accepting that appreciation how many times Out of concern of sounding arrogant or not you know seeming humbled and we say it wasn't a big deal. I'm going to be no. Don't worry about it was nothing you know that takes away away from the person who is thinking you because they just mentioned it's a transaction essentially the person that is giving thanks is genuinely giving their appreciation which allows the person that did the thing that brought upon the thanks to feel that appreciation. And you know we need need to be okay. It's something that I'm definitely going to try to work on like when somebody says a genuine thank you. So you're welcome. Just let it. Let it marinate there. You know instead of don't worry about it was. It wasn't a big deal. No say you're welcome and allow allow like both people in that transaction to milk everything for that entire transaction if that makes sense so that's that's definitely something to keep in my mind for sure the habit of telling people when they complimented me Or said something Nice Rob said you're too kind to oh you're too kind and instead of thanking thanking them I would downplay it like. Oh you know you're you're being too kind you know and it's still a it's retort. That's you know it's not. It is not putting them in a bad mood. I don't think but I'm not doing it right. I need to say I'll thank you. You're too kind but thank you. I could do that. It would be better. I forget the thank you and so so now like just going to drop that line and just say thank you and you know. I'm uncomfortable with the compliment that I need to get over it. Because you know we gotTa tone and be confident and just take the take the compliment. Because you're when you tell somebody something nice you don't want to downplay it. You don't want him to say giving somebody a birthday gift. The Guy I was saying insane. I'm not worthy of this. Let me just dropped it on the floor. No no no. Don't do that to say. Thank you We went to that party a couple of weeks ago with my old neighbor and he had turned fifty three or something and got him a six pack of beer and some chocolates. He was so appreciative of it. Look this rain the you guys great. This is great thank you I love it. I'M GONNA try one right now. And he took the fridge and he popped open and he put the other five in the fridge He really liked that. I don't I don't know if he did or not but he sure fooled us. I spent fourteen dollars on you there buddy but he he was genuinely appreciative. And I'm like I can learn something from him right now because I don't think I get that excitement. Somebody gives me something. Why don't we there being kind? And it's birthday you know. So what the heck enjoy it right. Yeah totally enjoy it and yeah we did. We had several moments Even today during a yoga class The talented Jackal Michael and let our class and And I had to pay twenty six bucks for Dang Yoga class which isn't cheap and I definitely was kind of like. Wow that's I wasn't upset at painted or anything but it's like that's that's pretty steep. I don't even make twenty six when I teach it but gone seriously and so At the end of the of a fantastic workout just dripping sweat great music just great energy great vibe in the class and at the end. She's a massage therapist. I guess or something along along those lines and she kind of went around the room and as we were in Shiva she you know did some some head rubbing of Several students definitely me. She's like no. You paid twenty dollars. I wanted to make sure this is a positive experience for you. And it's put a very perfect cherry on top of a perfect workouts and you know we were getting dressed after it was okay. is she still out there. 'cause I WANNA make sure that I go. Thank her and gave her a high five and and she was You know it was something that she consciously did to make the experience as great for everybody that was in there as possible and she genuinely appreciated. It'd our thanks. You give her a little bit of a hard time for not massaging everybody but she was genuinely genuinely received our thanks and we genuinely genuinely sought out to give her that. Thanks and we just we have to be okay with both sides of that a little bit more and It's it's such a beautiful thing when it when it happens when we allow it to happen and just a quick correction. I gave her a little grief because she rubbed your head way longer than she wrote mine. I paid twenty six more dollars than for that. I like Geez I thought how long are you going to rub my friend Chris. What about me ever hear chopped liver but Not Jacqueline Fantastic class fun to do that. And they just showed up and and cruise on down to watch the major league baseball and of course you still never answered and my trivia question. I gave you fifteen hundred clues on it. we'll have to get off air because I don't want to give it away here but really just you know to tie a bow on a put that Cherry on top for me. Let's go have some dinner and finish out to this fantastic day. Then you know get back to our families and say thank thank you for allowing me to take off for a little while and and and you know not be selfish but just having an adventure with a friend and do this kind of thing and I a highly recommend you guys out there just do it. Just find something and and find a way to connect find a way to say yes find a way to get together with like minded ended people or some people. You don't even know yet that you're going to learn a little bit more from and I guarantee the least at the very least w something that comes away that you're like well. That was cool. I like that part about you. Know hearing that story about this or go to that place to eat dinner. I'd go back again. There's always something you can hang your hat on and And have a good time. Yeah I really like the way that you said all that for me. It's just say yes. Make it happen and throw the excuses off to the side every once in a while. Everybody benefits when you say yes. You know it's definitely like I said a little bit stressful on my family to be away for a few days but I am. You know reenergized It's great my wife. Sees that I got to do something fun. We've been sending her pictures and videos they go. It's so great to see that you're having a good time We have a tendency to feel guilty about a lot of things and we're definitely not saying taking advantage of anybody anybody but when you say yes and you have a positive experience and everybody in your life benefits from that positive experience. So I'm right there with you. Say Yes and I'm glad glad that we said Yes to opening day at Petco Park. It's definitely a day that I remember for quite some time friend absolutely.

I'm an invite people to a barbecue my backyard whoever shows up shows up and they have they'll have no idea that's my actual wedding day and then that'll be it like no one has spent money on their hair known as to spend money on buying address edison more thought to that actually beach thing so i mean yeah. I think what what about the wedding gave you that idea. I don't know i think it was just it's a lot you know it's a lot of planning and preparation and that even for the guests going watch me have the most elaborate wedding after i say this you are kind of like oh god here comes an insult you. How do i say that you like nice thing. Oh really you're you're you. It looks like i like nice things but i like to you like nice clothes and you'd like to be your hair and jewelry. Do you not not really the only julia i'm wearing right. Now is my ring looking through your instagram. I see you as like <hes> like a high. I like dressing up absolutely kind of booze. Usually you do not know me but like someone that likes to celebrate a grand grandly i mindless and if we're comparing you to me yes no van.

I come from an italian alien background and we the weddings that we do. The baptisms confirmations like everything is always so big and we sell it. We love to celebrate and for me. It's like i want to celebrate with the people that i see on a daily basis and that's the people that i basically see every sunday which is my family and my closest friends so i don't know this is just something that went through my head because it was a lot that day was to weddings and then the next day same day yes and it was an hour away. They were an hour away from each other end up working. The one of the morning wedding and one was an afternoon one was they were both in afternoon wedding but my boyfriend came with me to the first one which was my close friend and then i went to his his friends reception so i got to meet all the rest of his friends which was crazy because i think i was talking about it with annelies. Who's here hi girl which we'll get. We'll get the okay so she was like. I didn't know that you were you and josh dating for a couple of months. I think people think that we've been dating for longer than how long has christmas december jennifer march april may nine months july. Wow you're good nine months. No idea why i just said that oh yes so i i met the rest of his friends wedding so for me. I think it's so let me ask you this being with your boyfriend surrounded by love and weddings all these things that make you feel all these things. Yes yeah how does that does it. Put things into perspective for you at all like. Does it make you want to expedite the process a little bit more excited for marriage potentially with josh. I mean listen you know me. I've always wanted to get married. I've always wanted to have kids and i think for the longest time every time i started dating someone i thought oh. This is the person for me because in my romantic head. I thought i'm dating him for sure he's going to be the person may end up with but with josh. It's such a different feeling. It's a sense of of like i feel at home with him and yeah when we were at the wedding together. I can't wait for the day where i'm walking on the island. I just wanna see his face. The first yes i'm he sees me those thoughts that go through my mind and a couple of days later he looked at me when we woke up and he's like i'm gonna marry you honey. Can i ask a favour of you when you get married. Will you invite meteoroid wedding and not by jared. That's the favor that amassing like. I said it's going to be a small wedding so maybe no one's getting invite being. Josh go if you're listening to this. I'm going to do not disturb. The challenging thing for me is when i get married. Who am i going to invite me. Me does continue the trend of one percent income one so i guess it's going to go back to me now. Coming i mean as whatever i always feel like the left the one man that's out of the equation. I'm going to have a wedding and you're gonna be the only person in attendance. I love that was a call officiate. You're gonna officiate yeah. That'd be great. Okay cool so you had the weddings. You are incredibly incredibly happy in your relationship happy but now enough about meeting so we just watched the last episode of this well this week's episode on tuesday so so just for the listeners sake. We're recording this episode the thursday before <hes> the week after i dumped kaelin so we have not seen this episode of bachelor learn paradise but it has been that i returned back to paradise this week but again we have not seen the episode so we don't know exactly what happens and i can't really talk talk much about it. Let me just tell you this. I guess between the time of me leaving and the time of me being teased coming back. I think i can tell you what i did. I landed in san diego drove all the way to the grand canyon. I sat there for a couple hours. Thought about things listens to music listened to some lectures read. A book trump down to phoenix called one of the producers and said hey. I want to come back to the beach. What do you think this is. After how many days after you left paradise this was basically the same day. I think i landed in san diego and i called them and i was like hey guys. I'm sad you left and you had immediate regrets so this is the in between tween time between obviously like i think that's kind of appropriate right because i left on the show and i come back next week and so yeah. This is in between time and so yes i landed. I was really upset and so i called them. We figured out. I don't think i can get too much into the nitty gritty about that right now but again canyon thought about things called them. They decided that they would let me come back and such that you're gonna see next week is coming back which will be fun for us to watch. I think i don't really know how it's gonna go but my hopes are high and it should be at least entertaining chaining if nothing else but obviously next week after that all happens we can talk about it a little bit more depth because i have so many questions actually wrote a draft tokyo. Okay i wrote a a list of questions because it's so upsetting to see an i'm such a fan of dean and you know this so it's so upsetting to see the self doubt that you have about yourself and how you think someone else deserves more happiness and i like how kaelin puts you in your spot every now and then and she's like why are you making making that decision for me so i do wanna get into this but i guess we'll talk about it next week. When you do reappear hopefully she'll take you back. I do want to touch on that really quick. Can we can with one of the next segment. I think that the self-doubt is more of not that. I don't think i have enough to offer people but just that i'm not willing to offer the things that they want to. I see you know what i mean that just because i'd say in a mode in my life right now where i want to focus on myself and be selfish etcetera but i would love to touch more on that next week when we talk about that when and we're able to talk about that in more depth so next up we are going to speak with belo bachelor contestant and she's going to update us on her life life because she's been dating and it's getting can we talk about what's no wait. Yes we can talk about it but before before we talk about it story. The producer is looking at me with a stink face like we can't talk about one hundred percent. We can talk about and we're gonna talk about it before. We do that though we are going to take one quick break and then really dive into it with endless. It's not always easy to know what makes a date go wrong. It could literally be anything but one thing's for certain certain if you've got dirty gross stuff inside your home your chances for another date.

Thank voices purity. They keep that italy's philipson last time we talked to you we were in tahoe. That was like four or five weeks ago. Something like that is it. That's sure okay go weeks ago anyways philipson. What's going on in your life. Life has been good. Are we really talking about my dating. One hundred percent is the dating podcast lady yes. They have been dating somebody else. It was about a listen. Dean loves getting and he's really good at getting information out of people so it just warning you. Whatever you feel like sharing share like the bare for minimum. I'm not ready to dive incompletely with details but <hes> but yeah i met somebody and he's great and i feel like it's the first first time maybe ever that. I'm like wow. I'm worthy of. This kind of relationship feels yeah. I don't know if i i don't i don't know if maybe i thought in the past that like i deserve somebody this great and he's really me we met at a time. It's a very much like when when you least expect this situation it was right after during paradise and i was done with men for i was like i'm going to just take a break from dating. I'm not gonna date intel intel maybe the show's done airing and then you know slowly get back into things i had a couple of people that wanted to set me up with you know friends of the family or whatever and i'm like okay sure but not for a while because i'm just not ready and i'm taking a break and then i went out to be a wing woman basically for a friend of mine and she she started talking to these guys when we became friends with them and then just have hung out pretty much every day sentenced to to work out for your friends. No i mean that was like she she and and i didn't well. She actually did meet somebody but not that weekend so yeah. Things are good okay great so that was how long ago ish we're cusp it on to i'm to me yeah. That's great. It's always the most interesting time too because like you're trying to get to know someone. You're trying to figure out what they like what they dislike very weird because the show started airing like two weeks maybe after we saw how did you approach that within because i'm sure he knew that you were from the bachelor franchise because he is not he so far removed removed from social media and all that stuff so that's a great sign yes so i i just set it on the second time we hung out one on one or maybe the first time we hung out one on one. I was like i gotta be honest with you know what it was what the bat batch was remember if he did because my boyfriend still has so many questions. He has no idea what paradises yard. I says he's like oh. She's on. Why was she on it that she not find love and i'm like yeah. It's your whole thing how the conversation was as well but i think he was sort of aware of the show that doesn't know anything about it so and then how is it watching the show when you're on it with them. I like this allow. Allow him like you just said you're not watching it or actually. I have a really really hard time watching myself back on it so i wasn't going to watch it and then when i found found out that i was going through union i just binge watched every episode. Did you feel about your parts on the show so i actually i had seen my part just because my friends on the east coast would send me clips because i was i'd have panic attacks like minor ones before come you know knowing like tonight's the night that this part air so they would would send me my little clips on so. I got to see that in real time. What can we talk about paradise for a second. I know it's hard to put yourself back into that situation. Especially now that you're in a good relationship what happened with the whole chris bukowski thing so that that was frustrating to watch back and i don't like it's always hard because i don't know exactly really what i can say he he was really pursuing me that first week and they didn't really show our relationship at all and i you think it's frustrating watching it back in seeing be shown so one sided because it really wasn't and he really struggled with that decision that at night christina came in had a conversation with him in i i think i don't know what was going through his head but <hes> but yeah i think he was probably thinking. Oh maybe more serious than so. I don't wanna be like committing myself to her for the rest of the time <hes> but i just wish he would have had that conversation conversation with me because if he would have realized i wasn't there yet but resentment towards christine effort coming in and saying that i mean a little bit. I feel like whatever whatever she said to chris was the same thing. She said to blake when he was thinking. I i feel like it was the exact same and <hes> yeah so i mean but the thing is everything everything happens for a reason and i am a firm believer on that and i think that yes i was disappointed in the moment because i felt really gypped of the whole experience watching ching it back though and like my person definitely never showed up on the beach so you know it is what it is. I think i sort of went back this time thinking oh i'm excited to make more friends and be still open to the possibility of love because it sort of worked for me. <hes> the year before you know so the way i was hopeful but i felt gypped so we're than anything both comparing season to season. It's hard to because you were there for shorter amount of time in the second time around and but also you it's it's easier to kind of remove yourself because you got less attached to someone right. So would you say that like the first time was better. The second time was better in your experience. It's so and this is another part of just editing. That gets frustrating is i actually i really really loved high handled paradise this year. I felt like i went in. I was open. I talked to everyone which wasn't released shown but i did. I think they're wearing a ton of options for me and i actually did have a connection with chris and so so it was just an easy natural fit to just spend my time with him but <hes> but i still was happy with how i handled everything <hes> maybe some things done slightly different but i did feel like i did paradise the way i wanted to do. Pass this year even though it was only a very short amount of time to your point like you said earlier. It's hard to look back and regret read anything because you're happy now right so it's like everything happens for a reason. Obviously it's a it's a good place to be right next. I feel like my perspective on all of it is just so different and i'm really grateful that i met somebody who doesn't doesn't care that i was on a dating show and you know that i put myself in this crazy world you know i think that's a classic example of like you said. It's so cliche but i i really do believe that everything happens for reason like before. I went on the show i i fell in love with the guy and i thought it was never gonna find love again and i thought it was the end of the world for me. Then fast fast forward three years later on the show and i get engaged in i was at high and then the relationship ends and again. You're back out a low and you whenever you're at that point in your life. You think you're never gonna find the person that you you're meant to be with and i remember like one episode. I did my solo episodes girl. Talk and amy was was like you know. I think you have to stop trying to stop wanting it so much and it's so true i i kinda. Just said you know it'll it'll happen when it happens and then it happens bins in a way that i really never thought it was going to date someone. That's slid into my d._m.'s on instagram and that's exactly how it happened so amy. Thank you for the advice. Why couldn't hear you what i said. Amy thank you for the advice. Oh yes i can give great advice those who cannot do teach into practice tame anything i do but i can give people the best advice the best chill you've got this. Everything's fine. Just let it come to you. The universal take care in the moment. That's not what you want want to hear. Though in the moment you wanna hear like is not not chill and i've cried the last days in a row. I cannot take mount advice but i'm working on anyways. Thank you so much for joining us happy. We're happy that you're happy and let me say stunning couple yeah yeah. He's very good looking that we do. We get to see them together in their natural habitat. It's great to see an. I'm say this lovingly lovingly. I hope we never see you on another bachelor. Show again because i hope this relationship to end all but thank you for joining us and we'll see you on the bachelor service reunion show in a couple of weeks yeah okay of course over the listeners out there we have two more guests from iheartradio's hit new podcast how many think we have to the co host dmitri and rick and they are going to tell us dive into a little bit with them but before we do that we're going to take one quick break and then jump right into it with them. This is how many my name is books like. I'm gavin girl man. We got a lot to say. I didn't have a line after where we're try i to be honest with you as we possibly can without well without killing our own career cicis unscripted unfiltered raw zero five. You've used the phrase loosely gentlemen sitting around discussing everything you guys wanna know so intense seconds or less how many think what is education of all men different ages man code decoded abu. I don't know if i can say damn. I can't even follow that up the tagline yeah. Let's let's go with that. Helmet is available now everywhere you listen to podcasts. Tom chelsea handler and i'm launching a brand new podcast with iheartradio called life will be the the death of me and i'm gonna talk to all these different people my b._f._f. Mary mccormack. That's what we should call my book tour the apology for great idea. Sorry okay everyone on this whole. Pot cash would be called. It should be called with the orange because of the orange team in the book archie glad i went to therapy life will be the death of me me with chelsea handler listening subscribe at apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts okay we are back with two of the co hosts of the four hosts. There's five total full car. We have forty percent of how men think here with us. We have some facebook questions. Both we'll these gentlemen are married and so it'll be nice to have yes a male's married perspective on these questions and your greek feel like they have the same mentality same of way of thinking when it comes to family life and relationships rick and you're white and i'm having eban so we're going to get a lot of fifty okay guys before we start you wanna tell us about your podcast real quick. We have like a good idea of who we're talking to listen. I mean so one of the biggest questions out there as from women especially as what men are thinking they all you get together and you think this and this is what this guy did. This is what he said. This is how we reacted to something. How what was he thinking and it's like stop asking your girlfriends and just ask a guy so that's what we are. We're five guys on the how many podcasts that are willing to tell you exactly actly how guys are thinking. We don't always agree because guys think different things but we're willing to tell you what you want to know. The other thing about show is we're got were men at different ages stages stages of our lives so like i have two kids to meet you as four kids brooks has zero kids. He's just recently got married. Two years ago brooks it's like and gavin de gras for people listening may not given his hilarious governess his he's hysterically fantastic but he's he's a rockstar any single so certainly right brings that perspective which is kind of respect to relate to. I feel like i was saying you seem to have that single rockstar type of personality. That's the question let me diapers doesn't mean single. Oh look at this. This question is from becca. I want both the answer this as best you can do. Men still think about right there. I love even when i'm in a happy relationship in a committed relationship not in. I want them back. Wave just in a row random nostalgic way. Question is why their view to married men one or two kids on the four kids ever think about the first woman that you ever loved i would say yes i mean i. I think it's not like you're like the question saying is you're not actually using using that to take over your existing. Love your in relationship that you're in but it's it's you're you're not comparing by any means but you're you're touching on to those feelings you know and so what was is that experience like and so you you may be comparing it to what you're doing now or how that is but i think you're as you go through life and the older you get you sort of reflect back on certain stages of your life if you know what was like in high school what was it like college was it like right after college and there may be three or four different people that fell in love with two or whatever and i think that i think it's okay okay to do that. Yeah for sure. I think you want to you want to remember especially that i mean i don't think you should sit there and and peru's in your mind all your relationships or think back at them yeah but i think as they pointed out they mean you know not want them back to sort of way. I think you want to remember that special time and that special person that i mean the person that and they don't even a sexually they just say that i love so it's like the person that kicked off you having these grownup feelings. I think that's something you definitely have to remember one just because it's a nice time in your life but too because you like rick said you want to grow from that. Let me ask you this so obviously two are in love. You're married. Does the love that with our lives. I think and i actually love each other. It's i think you guys are in love with your own wives. That's obviously what i what i meant to say. They're the love that you have because i was quite love to like a feeling right so i was in love when i was thirteen eighteen but i'm in love with him twenty different love but it feels the same way like in my chest audi. Would you say that it's a similar feeling that you have that you get from it. Yeah i'd say it's similar alert but it certainly is more advanced and as you grow mentally it's like the love is different like you you. Probably you cherish it more and you're more more aware of what it does for you. What that companionship does for you. When you're young you're like oh yeah. I love this person and you feel happy to be around them and they make you feel happy emotionally but as as you get older you're like rating things. You made some good points there. Will the kids dropping stuff the other thing. I was going the ad that dmitry was like there's a lot more on the table right now right so you're you can't be thirteen or twenty-eight n._b._c. Google in love with somebody. <hes> you know that you have kids kids. You're you're expecting too as well and there's friends or and your wife so i would say the love is actually different. I mean it's still a love but but it's a different feeling and you can't always bring that back up you bring that back up in certain scenarios so like your first born you go back you go out on dates or you go on like a little. You know a ticket vacation together like those are things that i look back on. Those are the things that kind of bring back back some of that loving feeling. Was that a song was that gavin suit. I'm not sure but we'll give it to them and i think you're exactly right and as you get older life is life is tougher man like when you're young on your like i'm in love we love whatever going to a concert going to the beach but now it's like you have bills and you have responsibilities and you need someone that can that can be your partner under throughout that and that's that's really the difference because you have more of an appreciation for the love and support to take your both married. You're both in love. You're both happy for our listeners. Listeners who are experiencing heartbreak or who have never found love. Can you say that you could fall in love more than once in your lifetime. Sure course. I agree three to four. I fell in love with the girl in the airport. The other day get opportunities and he knows what are we taking mike just because i didn't get an opportunity to go on and on five dates with it doesn't mean i didn't see actually a funny segue into our next question. Okay from katie lee she wants to know. Where can you find quality guys. Dating apps is airports is at the gym. I mean listen. I found my boyfriend on instagram. <music> grabs a grim preferably guys that aren't married. You know i honestly i think the best case scenario and this is my wife and i met we met through a mutual friend. I think if you have somebody in common you cut out a lot of steps yeah so you already kind of vouch for the person for both people and so we met she was working with somebody that starts sound convoluted but she was working with this girl that i went to college with who started dating a friend of mine and then she she was throwing a birthday party and she she said hey bite this guy that i'm dating and some of his friends and i think you might like one of his friend and she was like oh. Whatever also this party up and that's that's how we met okay so you're saying the the best way to meet someone is through a mutual friend best case scenario okay. That's best case scenario. I think demetri <unk> our experiences is a little bit data to be honest with you you know nowadays as if you're twenty five twenty eight twenty three i think you whether it's their instagram or through tinder app or through some of those other those apps that that people use yeah i think that's an okay way to meet somebody and it definitely kind of cuts jason different aspects than having a common friend and and if that doesn't work try the deli counter at the grocery store. It's always a good one that is because you have a similarity. <hes> you know have a common thread and salted meat and see what they were really depends. The petco also next question all right rainy. Why does the guy texture. I invite you to hang out then leave you on open open for hours or days and looking at someone specifically when they plan time when the plan time comes around to actually hang out then they text you later and ask ask. When are we hanging out this and they invite you hurt. He's he's not he's not. He's looking for better options. He's he's at when he takes you that first time. He's he's at a moment where he's like. Ooh i i kinda wanna hook up or i come thinking about this person. He throws he cast a line out. You bite right away. He's like all right well. She's on the line. Let me see what else i can do. Let me see if there's other people out there. In then he that part bypasses and i'm not saying this is the right thing to do but this is what's happening in that situation that time bypasses and then he's like oh he's like but i i don't want it to be mad at me. Let me throw it out the hey. Why don't we hanging out. I totally agree with dimitri or it may not be that they're hanging out with another person. I think they're just looking for other things to do. You you know in the meantime. I was going to go to the ball game with my friends or i was going to go on a bike ride or one of the things like utech someone hang out when you're bored and you're not bored anymore and you don't really want to take time to hang out with them. Comes around. You're like actually i'm not bordering bottom line is. You're not a priority to him where he's like. I absolutely want to hang up. I'm gonna jump at the chance to hang out with you. That's we're also seeing tell the girl not to be too easy. 'cause the guy's one they want to chase. They do want to chase i but in this situation of that happens. I think you move on to a different guy. I don't think think that's yeah. I think so too yeah. Our next question is from megan. She wants to know if a girl were to offer up on the first date with a guy always by on the chance so sleep with her no not always. We talked about this recently on on how many think i think yet. There's i think rick's going to disagree with me because he did that day as well but i think i think yes guy obviously will want sex but when it comes down to if he sees himself with a it has a future with this person he may be hesitant. He may not want to rush into it because he doesn't want to. He never won as you said. We said in just a few minutes ago. There's something about the chase. There's something about exploring that time and taking baby steps in a relationship get interrupted real quick. I'm sorry because i'm trying to think of my personal experiences here and i've done into dates before where where i'm like no matter what happens. I'm not giving it up. Not nothing's gonna change my mind and i get into the to the to the zone dates going well. It gets offered offered up and nine times out of nine. I'm not i'm fighting and i've taken it. And how many of those girls have you married okay. It's a good point but still he's only twenty eight that but that's the point so yeah of course you doing that but when you don't get me wrong i know people that that went on a date i i had sex and they're happily married. It's possible but in some guys minds you don't when you think about settling down and you think about somebody being the mother to your kids. You don't want to think oh oh she was just too just giving it up our if you have that connection great but i also disagree with you again dmitri common to every show that dmitry and i are both aw i disagree with everything he says yeah i mean i'm coming from the perspective so basically if you wanna have sex go out with amy i'm coming from the perspective that if the date is going well and you're getting along with this girl and then you get to the certain point of of the date and everyone's kind of ready to play then let's go i agree with that. Take the point. I feel like the older we get. You don't have to make excuses for the decisions that you make in that at that time. That's true so if i wanted did with. I'm not going to explain when or how my boyfriend and i the first time we had sex episode me. We're not going to get into that but if he would have stopped talking to me for me. That's not someone i wanna be with because i want to be with someone who respects my decisions and if i'm making those decisions based off of we'll vanessa wants to do then that's the person i want to be with not because they're going to be judging me if if you know i'm sure guys have slept around the for and it comes down to like <hes> what's it called like what a guys are allowed to do versus what girls are allowed to do. Would you be fine. So would you be fine. If if you knew that your boyfriend had sex on every first date he went on. Would that be your okay. You wouldn't think anything confusing protection if a guy and a girl go on a date and they sleep together and that's enough of a reason for the guy to stop talking to the girl then that guy is not got a girl at the guy that did anyway but i don't mean stop talking. I just think it in a in that scenario. Would you have sex every time it was offered i wouldn't and when i was in college. There were times that i could have had sex and i didn't because i didn't want i didn't i knew i didn't feel that way about that. Girl and i didn't want her thinking that i did so but granted keep in mind. I've been married for fourteen years so times change and nowadays at rick's my age you can have sex you have it with anybody or anywhere. Who plug does mike okay next question's from ashley. Would you get engaged if you didn't have the money for a nice ring slash the ring your fiancee wanted so i'd say my boyfriend and i were getting married and for me personally i don't care. I was actually she added. I i was i was at burke yesterday and i was shopping around and the woman was like oh look in the engage at the engagement rings and i'm like how much is this like sixty sixty thousand dollars on my sixty thousand engagement ring. You could find the same ring somewhere else right. I'm like i for me. It's just it's crazy that the guy has to spend that much money i mean of course it's pretty but i think why not spend the money that you know spend spend the money on what you could afford and then save david on a house or saving for your children's education. That's exactly what i did so i knew that i wanted to propose to my now wife and at the time i said i don't we don't have endless list amounts of money but i knew i wanted to propose. I knew we were ready to get married. So <hes> i bought a ring that i could afford and i propose and then somewhere down the line when when we were doing better in our lives and we had more money for an engagement i surprise her and took her and we took the stone from that original ring and she picked out a new band and we put that stone own and so it's still has the original stone but she had a much nicer ring. Why because you don't have enough money. You're going to put off getting married. I didn't see that yeah. I agree with you to meet. You and i also think you that's something you can build upon so like you. Have you have a diamond or you have a story that you like and then you can make a bigger one soon as you know as you move on three months salary things things. That sort of thing is supposed to be three months pay really. That's what i heard old-timey. Get people to tell us if that's still a thing because that is just super from i'm well. How much is it ringo for. When i heard sixty thousand dollars was primarily based in him up on craigslist. Dollar ring is pretty common but you could get a great ring for five thousand dollars. The trick is like with with property. Find someone that's going through a bad <hes> divorce and they're willing to sell it for cheaper and if you don't care about like you know bad <hes> emoji or whatever goodwill or something maybe a thrift store go the thing is the design and not necessarily the size of swimming now that i'm like i'm always looking at women's hands to see what their rings look like some trying to get an idea media and i saw this woman that the diamond was in big but it was it was originally was <hes> like a teardrop or appeared pear shape with like little begets on the side <hes> but the diamonds were very very small but it was so original and beautiful diamond bam like it just depends who you are but that should not be a reason to not get engaged like that is his yacht bleep in my engagement ring was big meal lane thank you it was big. It was too big bucks. You can't mouth answers on a podcast because we can't get that rain. It was too big for me when she was describing the ring. You kinda shuttered for a second when you heard back yet. Were you thinking carbs. Who don't want to get back myra grocer okay. Lisa wants to know if guys get insecure. She says <hes> do they ever feel like a girl might be too good for them. So that's why they won't approach a girl or swipe on the app. What do you think i think so too. Yeah i think i think there is definitely get insecure. Weird already complex. I think sometimes i mean we're sitting here with you. Johnny handsome. I mean how do you not feel come on little insecure not like it. If <hes> woman is more successful than them. I personally love it. So what's funny. Actually is this girl. I did a little bit last year for some time is a very very successful commercial real estate agent and she says she's beautiful girl and she says she goes on dates frequently right and she would meet all these guys and she makes like five times as much money as they do in all of them would like shy away from her for it but that's like that's like literally one of the sexiest things you could possibly tell me like that's so sick that you're like a determined successful like driven person. Obviously i heard a lot of guys are getting insecure by her telling them that my wife is the c._e._o. Of a company of of a big company out to me that's that's hot hot like. I don't want her being like oh. How was worried like she. She is brilliant. She went to business school and i think that's a turn on and i have zero insecurities about that because if they're putting that much effort into their work they're going to they know what it takes to have something successful accessible so that can translate into a marriage as well and she knows how difficult it is to be a co host of a podcast then it is very challenging rick. What do you think <hes>. I think it's i. I get insecure about that. No i think it's actually a huge accomplishment. If the woman or the significant other actually is very successful i think it's i think it's a turn turn on. I think it's <hes> i think i mean why would you wanna have or feel insecure about somebody. That's working their own tail in yeah thanks great and in general i mean when we did our podcast and tahoe rick. Did it in a speedo so he doesn't get into that comes a lot of. I don't know exactly what it is but yeah. No i do because i saw him. I'm just saying it's impressive because a lot of practice. I don't know we have one final segment and rick obviously with your blessing. We i wanna eat her on. Okay peters your son. Yes extremely handsome thank you he's in grade eight so peter and i and i because all of us met peter on the elevator and i swear i was like this is like eighteen. You must be a senior in high school or something like that. He shakes my hand. He literally put my hand half because he's got the strong scrip. I've ever seen blown away by this kid. When i was thirteen years old i was like the biggest loser in the world and this kid has something that just no other has so we're going to talk to him a little bit and see what dating as a thirteen eighteen year olds in eighth grade is like nowadays actually thought he was a child actor when the elevator i was like oh what movie are you. If you know people who do know about the bachelor astra franchise. He looks like a many robert graham. Yes you said i i know i could definitely see. It's the knows it's the lips looking. Thanks you're saying that a peter was pulled from class earlier today. He was taking a history test but we pulled him out to bring him to this podcast. What is it like for you to be dating as an eighth grader. It's very awkward cord. Do you have a girlfriend yeah do record. You know about that. Why how many girlfriends i do. I didn't know about this one. I like that answer. Why is it weird today. That's an eighth grader later because everybody's going through puberty and you can be at different stages. So how did you and your girlfriend school. And how long have we've been dating for two years long relationships for marino for a year and have you guys kiss each other. You know okay. Okay okay playing it slow. I respect that a lot when you had your first kiss. I was in first grade. That's why god it. It was weird now looking back on it. It was i was in first grade nikki web early. Bloomberg remember named does peter effort comes to you for advice not now no no not anymore. No yeah i think in the future we'll we'll have the sit down but yeah i mean most of the advice that he's going through. He talked to as mother about in terms of the girlfriends and stuff. What is what is it like what their relationship you guys text each other. You talk on the phone as each other at school we text each other and school okay in at school yeah so there's not a lot of face time going on or hanging out on her saying well one time we facetime and we fell asleep on the face time then my mom got you. That's really romantic. That's cool saturday's that over the phone all the time because i woke up twelve and and there were also they didn't have they didn't have a minute but admitted that it was all right that's right so what is it about this girl that personality yeah. You guys have a lot in common yeah exactly four years very allergic to bees. Oh okay simpler time simpler. You know the older you get get the more it takes but yeah when you're eighth grade. I'll take a listen. I want to avoid these me too. Let's go hang out together honey are you do you until you guys go to high school or through high school and all that kind of stuff. Maybe i don't know he's we're only thirty one old. Yeah what you don't ask somebody at that age about how we should be asking you. I'm just trying to get to know him and his girlfriend a little bit better but so you don't know yet. That's at the end of the day eh. What are you gonna kiss her. You have any plans to her. I feel like us a common the moment yeah so how does somewhat thirteen <hes> how does a thirteen year old decide this. This is my girlfriend like what makes it your girlfriend. We just talk about it like. I think it's through time. Okay get to know the person so you're talking about it for a while and then eventually like let's just boyfriend girlfriend yeah and so if she was like talking to another boy you'd get probably pretty jealous not really know the confident. That's healthy. That's good. I don't know where he gets it from but all right well hey peter. Thanks for sharing about the relationship. We wish nothing but the best obviously because it's a little too early apparently only be asking her. If he's the one asking well listen. I think for sure because you know what it takes. The you know when you know the one yes you do now but that's my point. He's thirteen like he. He should be thinking eater. Reveal are they in stu- officials gladio hermano insta- official. What have you posted a fiction. Post your picture on your instagram. No no what are you waiting for. Well i don't know is that a true thing. Do are you actually officially dating when and somebody posted a picture of the person that then you'd get bullied get bullied. Why would you get bullied because you're being too romantic yeah candidate eight hundred and what eighth grade and eighth grade until high school for that listen peter when you want to know more about girls i know you wanna ask your dad just listen to the helmet think think podcast and he doesn't allow me to but at the time i would rather you. Have you know balancing. You know thoughts has just hearing because i know what your dad thinks about stuff. It's okay listen to the group. Okay maybe second dating to in conjunction with you.

We have to do to six stories there dozen starting with our number one this morning a bomb dropped m o. The show twenty one is coming to xbox game pass day one pulling from news dot xbox dot com where the right we're delighted to announce that the mlb mlb the show. Twenty one is coming to xbox game pass on day. One and will be available on april twentieth for xbox series x slash s and xbox one as well as on android phones and tablets via xbox cloud gaming ultimate members both. Mlb the show twenty one. Xbox one and xbox series x s standard editions will be included with xbox game pass so members will be able to play the best version of the game regardless of which console there on and with cross platform cross platform. Play and progress. You can play against others online and earn and use content across the platform and generation. You choose as he said from the beginning. This is an incredible incredible and bringing them franchise and more players and baseball fans is something that we at. Mlb and we'll be players inc and xbox are all excited about. We can't wait for xbox fans to experience the fastest deepest and most intense moment to moment baseball action yet with pinpoint pitching brand you feeling mechanics and gameplay styles. Xbox xbox gamers are in for in for a treat when mlb the show. Twenty one launches on april twentieth lucy. A playstation exclusive franchise not only coming to xbox xbox game. Pass wiz your reaction to this. I first of all. I'm british so. Mlb is a thing that has just never crossed my consciousness until all of this sony. Xbox not because i was i was. I was requested as you specific. Mlb things you'd probably know them. So i was wondering what your thoughts were on. Like the franscisco lynn door deal with the mets Being a huge contract three hundred and four three hundred and forty one million dollar million. Oh my god ten years what. We're crazy crazy for baseball. I mean that's that's just an obscene amount of money of sport. But i baseball has actually been to see the. At t. park oracle park. I've been to see the giants time and that was fun. What are your thoughts on. Buster posey as a catcher. Oh my god. Don't give you start them. Buster what i watched the unofficial bash brothers lonely island data. I've listened to the soundtrack a bunch of times. I'm not even joking when i tell you that. That is the limit of my knowledge like jose. Mark that album is true. And the weirdest thing. It's hilarious bury. You're you're you're the big Mlb person at kind of funny does this strike like what is this rack. you like. this is crazy. I mean less. Because it's like baseball and more just because i i. I said a very intense term when we were off air But this is like sony has to you know. Make this game like sony was in this relationship with them. Won't be and what would make this relationship even more fun if we opened this up to other people than mlb started hanging out with xbox and playstation can really go anywhere and then. I won't be an xbox or having this great time and sony has to sit down and watch it and it's it's just like they're in a bind here and it's really interesting to see how this goes down. He's saying the mlb started to invite xbox to like the nice box. Yeah the king at box and a sony's like back down on the bleaches exactly. It's great for xbox players but it is one of those things where it's just like man like i. It's it's weird to see what was a technically sony. I party up until this year. Dropped day one on game. Pass out to me it's like. Mb is calling the shots for this. Oh yeah like anything. I mean i mean it is still a first party game right like it is being developed by sony. San diego Is being published by playstation. But i think as pointed out by patrick. click on twitter It seems like emo is the publisher on the xbox side of things. Which i think is the big indicator for how and why this is happening like you know. I don't know if this is a a These are the tide shifting towards. Hey you're going to see more playstation first parties on xbox see more places. Your first partiers on xbox game pass. I don't think them that that's necessarily the case here. I think the case here is mlb. Seize the opportunity for xbox game pass which is a huge thing because i think that that points ford. That's point that points towards us things. Xbox game pass in terms of what that service means But i wonder if we're mlb thing of hey. This is a franchise that is coming new xbox fans it's coming you to xbox players in so for this iteration. We want as many people to get into it as possible and to do that. Xbox game pass is probably the most ideal Way to release the game so that this year xbox fans have a thing they can look towards go. oh shoot. this is an xbox game pass. I notice the big baseball franchise. I'm gonna try this out and then come. Mlb twenty two. That's when they pull it back and they go. Okay no now you gotta buy this thing now. We got you now now. Now we're to really you win real efficient. You know what i was gonna say. I wonder as well if how this came about now. I wonder about the timing. I mean xbox has been so vocal and so open with working with everyone and so it must have just been. Mlb giving it that final. Push to get this over the finish line. Sony has typically been more reticent to kind of play nice with others obviously. There is a little bit more Sony content coming on pc aquatic dream for example horizon training. And it's just. It's so strange. And i think even when we had mass achieve in fortnight and crato us in fortnight and seeing them on their different respective platforms. That was so strange. And i genuinely think that's just the beginning. I think we're going to get so much more of this whether if it's gonna be i can't necessarily i can see microsoft's saying hey if you want if you guys wanna have halo on sony platforms. That's fine. we'd be down with that. I still. I still think there's going to be that friction though but i think in terms of like opening the door you know so much more so many more games have cross play now cross platform play. I think this is going to be more and more of this. But it's so strange to see fest. He stuff i get my head i. I don't know this is going to be the foot in the door. And i don't know if this is actually like what's going on the back end like what people think because even greg pointed out that i think patrick clinic pointed out that. Mlb is listed as the publisher for station. So you need you need that. I mean like a force is huge. Is emma bay. I'm assuming that similar to fever and all the other sports regulatory people. But it's like they are putting the money behind this and i imagined it some executive. Mlb who's hey. My kids asked for an xbox this year but why kawhi on are wising. mlb on xbox and then just pushing that through their service that they probably only hear great things about because game pass socked about. It's always talked about. It was like the best deals in gaming. So they're like. Hey we should be a part of that. It's just one of those things around the other side. You got playstation plus and. It's like well nothing going on there. This week's game pass is something beyond just a great deal right like you know. Actually i'm going to pull in a question from a dissertation dot com slash. Kinda funny games just like you can't says hey guys i'm sure today you're getting a ton of does this mean game pass has come into play station. And the occasional. Does this mean sony games will become into the game. Pass day one questions today with all this. Mlb the show news over your opinions about what this could mean for. Future deals may game pass. This is probably a time deal and will be available for. Let's say six months on the service this would mean that not only. Is there a sales bump for just being sixty dollars on xbox and the game pass discount but more subs in sales is more people. Want to check this out. Is this the creation of a new game pass deal with xbox and other major publishers. Do you think we'll see more time releases. On game pass push the the scarcity scarcity mindset to fool is to not only bump up sales numbers even if discounted but player numbers in downloads. Even if it means sony looking bad to their own customers who are still getting it for seventy dollars. What are the possibilities. Does this deal kick kick the door wide open for as we are now entering the entering phase. Three of xbox game pass. Thanks the nato biologist. There's a lot here. But i do think the idea that we've seen lately. Xbox game pass making bigger and bigger moves in that not seeming to slow down at all. I think that. I think that is indicative. Something i think we're not gonna see see this slowdown. We just got outriders on game pass yesterday and the day after outriders comes out on game pass. We're getting it'll be. The shelving announced regained pass. I think during the year you're probably going to see more surprises. Come out for game pass And like you mentioned earlier right there like you know why now right like why. Why are they announcing this now. That's just coming around. And i think that's even that's that's also interesting on the side of this game about a month from release bear you. You probably do better than me and me. The show is coming out in like a couple weeks right. april twentieth. Four twenty four twenty in a few weeks and outriders game pass was announced a few weeks before they came to game pass like it seems that the closer certain certain publishers publishers deb's gets releasing their games and the more they they start to see. I don't know if it's optics or pure numbers. Or what but that switch seems to flip and it seems to be a. They seem to see value in game. Pass they see. They see it as a viable road to go down. And i think that is a mixture of getting in people's hands boosting player numbers With the game like outriders outriders doesn't seem to have a dlc or micro transactions. But i wonder if maybe they have that plan down the road that turns into a value opportunity for them for mlb. the show. Like i said earlier right like get the first edition people's hands and then later later down the road when you release it'll be twenty two or when you take this one off game pass in six months our our that pans out you then get that return you then have people return or by the game four or do what they want to do in order to actually continue to stick around for that game and become a fan of i think i think there's a lot there but i do think so much of it speaks to the power of what game pass is and for the sony thing right on the sony side of things. I think i think this is where this all this becomes the most interesting. Because i got another question here from it crashed in who wrote in john and said. This is the first time i was planning on buying. Mlb the shell replace. Asian go padres but with the news. The news the news coming from xbox it almost feels gross to pay seventy dollars to play it on playstation five at this point what are the odds of playstation having some sort of retaliatory move before the game comes out. It seems like so far. Sony has been asleep at the wheel for twenty twenty one. And i think that is kind of a like on the playstation side of things. It is kinda heavy when you are the the devs of this game. You are the ones who who've been publicly publishing this game for decades. You are the one putting in work behind making this thing and then all of a sudden your main competitor has the way better deal on obtaining this thing i i. There's a lotta friction. There speaks to the power of xbox game pass again. There's a. There's a harsh term that i use but has to just sit and watch Mlb an xbox have a lot of fun together they just have to sit and watch the entire thing but it's not like sony's can lose out unless because they will have been paid to put the game on game pass and if that gives them a whole new audience other microtransactions in mlb. If there is like the mode that i play. They don't I could see Some of the mode possibly having it but a lot of people on chat thing. Yes so yeah so. They're getting get money that way. And i do wonder so if there is you know i would assume that microsoft would take a cut of microtransactions if the game is being sold on that platform and you would imagine that perhaps may be. That has also been negotiated. So that sony's getting caught as well as microsoft like everyone's going to be benefiting from this like especially people who love baseball and have own xbox has been able to pay be it's just like it is so weird and we were talking about this on generation next last year which is like the show. We did about new console stuff where it was like. It seems like this stuff is always cyclical and. There's always just like between sony microsoft. There is this one front runner in terms of who's doing that. Pr better and for the launch of xbox one and a ps four. it was definitely sony. And they you know lent into that arrogant sony thing and they did the the infamous video. That's now kicking in the us. Which is the He has had shed games on. Ps four and handing shuhei handing over the the ps four desk. And now it's like you have this week alone where you've got nintendo taking killing. Mario and i mean honestly a shrewd move but it's to be expected from nintendo. Because that's what they've done four thirty odd years right it's like create this fake sense of scarcity. People will buy it. And that's what happened with mayra playstation. I don't know what they're doing. They're just like taking away. I mean we're gonna talk about this bit but like taking away tintri thousands of games from people and then go game pass at from xbox who just making these moves putting bethesda on that putting. Ea on that but also making these really strong moves to bring sony games on like just to basically take an a give as many games as they can get on that service and so it's so wild to see the the waves of this. I guess yeah do you. Do you think there will be any sort of in mitch. Crashes question right here. He asked right. You see the same sort of retaliatory move before the game comes out for. Mlb the show. Do you think there's anything play could even do. In order to kind of counteract game pass here so not so. I don't know with regards to like this. Game is in development but it's out in three weeks that feels like way too late for sony to go. Okay well this team or this. I don't know you know how Fever and peres in the uk Certain competitions would be. You're dependent and so. I don't know if sony even has the ability to kind of hold stuff back to their version at this point but i can't see for the rest of the year part of me wonders if sony's going to keep doing that thing where they try and get timed exclusives so know ghost why tokyo they always typically have a relationship with card previously destiny they would get exclusive content and i mean they did that with a vengeance macau that's panned out at all of the stops been delayed. But you've got to wonder if on these really serious like serious conversations happening at sony right now going. What can we do to compete on. Unless them closing the ps three vita stores is them working on their own game pass with their own legacy content while they're going to be doing for the rest of the because that just seems like such a bizarre move when when their competitors are building up these services around them. Yeah i see. A lot of people in shabby mentioning. Ps plus as a possible move. And i don't see it. Like i think if they were to make a big move that would be the big move to make right game out and launch game on Ps plus But i'm sure for sony still see the value in terms of sales at launch for the show right especially on the playstation platform. There's so many people that show up for that game year to year and for the show every now and then correct me if i'm wrong. I believe we'll be the show every now and then we'll come out for plus like later in the year or the year after the game comes out which i think is valuable trash because you get those first day sales and then also you get to double dip on people into the franchise later on but right now like i do see the xbox game pass move as a move to get people in as a move to introduce a whole audience to this franchise and make it feel anything that you can't miss out on because it's right there and it's free position doesn't have that for mlb the show right playstation fans. If you're if you're a playstation fan and you wanna you wanna play baseball game or like a baseball game then you are into the show like they got you. They don't need to make that move for putting it on putting it on. Ps plus. i don't think it would be good strategic decision because at that point. It's like what are you doing. You're doing that to satiate your fan base that might feel burnt because this this other audiences able to get it for quote unquote free paying for a subscription in order to get it. But i don't think that's enough of her playstation or it's actually make that for the people who like are casual baseball or like a casual gamers who only play like sports games and play. Mlb the show every year and stuff. Like that. i don't know if they're in like the no of paying attention to this kind of stuff so like they're probably already. Anyway you know so Yeah the the the. That'd be a lot of money. I would say That would be left on the table. Also i just wanna say to chat ice creams. It'll be the show last year for one. Hundred fifty hours was my most stream game. I play on that game. But there's so much you can do that game and avoid microtransactions. So i'm sorry. Oh in the know of diamond dynasty. Dorks d i played. I played and i never. I've barely touched ultimate team in the years. That played fe-. I couldn't i couldn't tell you much about meeting because i just play online seasons and i played with friends like that's great thing about sports games you can pick a mode and just get lost in it and not talk about anything else. Did someone say the stuff. I was talking about with sony giving all this stuff. They said its playstation. Now i was talking about like a game pass. Compatible at stuff is free and it's like all of it so it's ps now expanded. I i still struggle with the fact that they have. Ps plus nps. Now it feels like they should just be one. I'm surprised they didn't do that. Going into the generation. I think of my prediction. That would find a way to fuse them by. Yeah they're still. Ps now i'm very. I'm very curious to see how that continues to be involved because it seems like there's actually a player ship there there are people that are. There's a there's a high number of people that are subscribed to playstation now. Do use it which is not talked talked about as like as as people talk about game passes because game it feels like this bigger thing that is that is putting games there on day one. And you're getting the first party games there. And you're getting you get your xbox live what do you call it too and whereas playstation we're gonna set these subscriptions apart. And you know you have to pay different different things and it's like those still have games with gold correct though no it does. Yes but open cut in speaking of things. You won't have to pay for a story number two. You don't have to pay for each this year. I'm pulling from. Rebecca valentine at aegean the entertainment software association. The organization behind three is denying reports that some of the content at this year's digital e. Three event may be locked behind a paywall or report today from vg's conversations with multiple publishing sources stated that the usa plan to put out at least some portions of threes twenty twenty one digital show behind a paywall with with a suggested premium package price of thirty five dollars. The report indicates that these elements would be would be along the lines of game demos or some kind of other some kind of extra access and it does not seem to suggest that the conferences themselves will be paid content review report indicated that these plans might be tenuous as at least one major games company had expressed criticism of this plan this plan. Mvsa seemed willing to back down. Its prior reports have described a week long experience in mid june with three days of broadcast content as well as ongoing content after after via an official app. Ideas reportedly pitched have included key from major companies and award. Show a preview night media in business meeting scheduling media in business meeting scheduling via an app demos virtual booths and merch stores following this report. The officially through twitter account published a statement directly in response to this report that read quote. Three's twenty twenty. One digital show is a free event for all attendees excited to fill you in on all the all the real news for the event very soon and quote and a further more specific statement given dvd. See from the. Asa said that quote there will be no elements at e three twenty twenty one that will be behind a paid for pass or paywall and quote. lucy what. What are your expectations for three. This year like the themselves have not talked about it in detail and they will talk about it soon but it seems like right now. Okay well we can expect is a digital event and what we've got gotten reported from different outlets. Are you excited for three this year. Where do you stand with. All that i edt. I mean you know just selfishly. It's always been the highlight of my year. And i think honesty thinking back to the summer games fast. Playful all stuff. That happened last year. That for me was a rebid crushing. Like a really big shot in the arm of what was otherwise echeverri down. Yeah i mean it was so strange and on a c. e. three. I hope we'll be that sean again. I don't think you're gonna have the. It's kind of impossible to describe the kind of buzz and excitement of what being at a trade show like that is is like to experience because you in the room where stuff gets announced. He had the crowd screaming. You're not gonna get a crowd screaming if everyone's watching at home so i think it's still. It's still really cool to have these digital events. I think sony's Know ps five. Like the big conference they had last summer was like the closest i felt. But it's still going to be a very strange one but i'm honestly i'm glad that's kind of being opened up to everyone. I mean e three was going that way anyway making it hof business show off of public show. Yes they absolutely did not get the like the public show pot right it like. It was very very expensive. The lines too long. This rooms weren't set out very well. But blurring those lines and making open to everyone so that everyone excited is a great thing however that are gonna be elements of it. You can lose so we talked about it on console crew. That's going up. It should be up today. Actually gamespot where one of the really cool things about e three and any show like packs or games come is that you wouldn't you would compete like develop a competing for space. Some of them are gonna have these huge boobs that cost millions of dollars with like huge animatronic of and hundreds of pods. And then they'll will be like really cool indies or just like you know maybe one or two boots on the microsoft show floor and that stuff is what spreads by word of mouth. I remember the first time. Hearing about hotline. Miami was a games calm and was because a friend of mine was like put pint go in to see volva They weren't even in like a parking or anything. They just had this tiny little office. Now there's a game in hotline miami. Go play it and when you have these big huge online showcases. You are fighting for attention. And it's it's maybe ten or more one minute trailers back to back to back to back to back and that's why like nintendo directs. The indians i find them hard to kind of even focus. On what games are there because they just show them in such rapid succession. You get no sense of time. Yeah so that's what the biggest thing for me is going to be this e three. It's like how the attention is going to be divided between everyone. Yeah i think so. Often of the reels we would see at three presentations of a bunch of indie games. Back to back to back to back. That wouldn't even have like the name of the game or the or the developer. Anything attached right. You just see two seconds of gameplay onto the next one and it's like is that really the ideal way to show. Is this thing off. Like the seems like a way for when i used to prop up that. Hey their games here but was there actual games. You're showing that could be could be showed off way better if you took the time actually do them justice and maybe maybe three isn't the right Venue for that. Maybe doing that. In your own. Indie showcase or finding your own stream and finding only to do that is a better way to go. I think that's been a shift in terms of these video game presentations. That have happened over the last year. That has kind of helped out that a lot like we just got the idea. Xbox presentation last week that was four hours long been too long but at the very least i saw so many games from there that i had interest in or that i wanted to try out like narita boy came from there and i was able to download it and try it out. The new drink box game nobody saves the world was was showing off their. And that's what i'm looking forward to you in the future and there there are plenty of other games. I can talk about from there to that. Like the lawn mower simulation game. We talked about last week right. There's a there's a lot of stuff from their those men. This seems really cool. And then you look. At nintendo with indies playstation and how overall the playstation blog lay periodically will drop eight random indie game announcements. That will often get people excited and get people interested in which is a way to do it. And so i'm i'm i like that shift we're getting. It seems like each year now where things are starting to be placed out a bit better and Three being e. three is an mp three being what seems like. It's going to be this year. I think is fascinating. And i'm curious to see how they how they do it because i do not have that much faith in them right now. Maybe they could announce it and detail what it looks like. And i'll be like okay. Let's go but as of now right. The reports have gotten is going to be a three day digital event there are trying to partner up with publishers and companies to have their showcases there and it seems like an e three that is caught between trying to be traditional three but then also trying to adjust to the pandemic and what The industry is kind of evolving into you when it comes to digital digital presentations and so i think there's something there especially when they talk about games in the hand in the hands of people to demo. There was a report if i believe on the website where this report originated. They talked about partnering with possibly partnering with nvidia to deliver on demand streaming in order to demos. Yeah and i think that genius idea cool. Yeah the problem with though is that i. I think that could work out. I don't think that works out if you charge money for it. Which is what the original report was and it seems like they're going back and forth. We'll see what pans out. We'll see what doesn't pan out. But i think there could be some really good ideas there if they're able to stick to the right things and not be not feel. So what e. Three was in tryon adapt in a way. That's good for everybody. I think at the minute just seems like everything is so influx. I did see andy robinson from bg. See tweet will. We held off on this because we will wait for statement and then everything they've done is just completely under. Cut what we were originally reporting so maybe it just seems that the goal posts is shifting all the time and i mean we still. I mean we're at the beginning of april so there's a good couple months before everything that's locked down and if it's mid june where it's going to happen and yeah there's some time left. I maybe this is one of those things are just like it comes together the last minute i mean i've been involved in our e-3 planning up in games. What seven years. And it's like you start having meetings in january and nothing really starts to get booked until about me like properly like appointments and stuff gets booked at me so i imagine this is probably going to be a similar scenario. Speaking of the whole summer games mess is the story number. Three summer games vest day of the devs has been announced. I'm pulling from gabe gerwin at gamespot. Summer game fest event jeff. Keely began back in two thousand twenty three as he was canceled. Is back again this year and includes a special day of the celebration. That will highlight great. Indie games returning in june summer games fast will be available on major streaming platforms as well. It's it's official website. And if it's anything like last year's event you can expect presentations streams announcements over and over a stretch of several months. There will there will also be a musical. There will also be musical performances and gameplay demonstrations and assign a button on the website will let you know when there is additional information. Dave the dubs has existed long before summer games fest and is now in its ninth. Year developers interested in having their game shown can submit using their projects in this form using their projects. This form which ooh that type of can't tell. Projects is form which asked for a variety of things such as your subscription a video link any online game bills and if you have shown your games at other broadcasts within the last three months there you go the summer games fest trucks on does its thing. I like the idea of i them asking. Hey have you showing your game off in the last three months a big presentation because i was one of my pet peeves last year with all summer games. You see the same games pop up at each and every event and it's like all right guys we get it. You're showing off this game. we understand. Yeah i mean. I have you ever been to a day of the devs san francisco. I've not no so i went. It was like my first year. When i moved here and they held it at the alamo theater and it was just the most fun and you get to see these games that adjust. I think i guess because double fine organizes it to every all the games that were chosen had this great sort of just just unique double fineness to them like you could tell those guys would like him look would like them and it was just a such a fun event and i'm so glad the day of davos is continuing and i'm really glad that goes punish it with jeff and i'm just oh yeah and also someone on the chat to things in the chat. Someone said it looks like i'm looking at myself. No i am looking at the run of show. If i was looking at myself. I'd be looking down here. We're talking about reference materials. He excuse looking at an excuse. This guy have so many questions. I have so many questions. did you lend you his invincible comics. Or is this the liver just isn't this is my bedroom. It's just the bookcases. Okay i see. I'm looking at the runway show and the second thing someone did say i someone in the chat. But it's it's it's gonna the jeff said this whole thing is going to be like a wants now. It's not going to be the whole summer. It's to be a more protracted. I fell companies. Clinton is going to be like. That's because you played at all. I couldn't tell them to. You said it. And i was like i only blush on one side of my face. That's fantastic also only happens on a eat to only get a blush reaction at one side of my face so strategy. I don't have to worry about that. it's not a problem.

Like andy in the team that do incredible work at in amazing scoops and then actually put in the effort to do the big break down and houses like this like they become one of my absolute like i log logging in the morning and go check and see what's going on game saw dot com. And the yeah. I'm actually right there with the awesome especially in the last few weeks. I feel like they've been killing it in terms of getting scalps in terms of when we're talking about the whole three situation they have been the go-to source for that specifically and they've been doing great work so shout out to andy robinson. Shout chris school. You know who did this. report doing. The lord's work shoutouts. You story number five bucks. This sucks this said this. do you have. Do you have any playstation digital games that you have any memories of or any that you're sad to see leave the store so intensive stuff the digital definitely digital only. I'm not one hundred percent show. my vita is at home. But i'll tell you what i did manage to take from the office before we left lopez tv. It's not mine. It's the just aps ps tv. And so actually genuinely might do is see what i can do that. 'cause i call remember if you put an ssd cod download stuff onto it. I might see because my visa's is back in the uk. So i might see if i can get you know like persona for golden persona three portable and just see if i can go grab some games. We we play malcolm solid and i was gonna try and set it all up and get it from them but instead we just did. Pc but it might be a good chance to grab some of those games some of the old. Ps one stuff to that. I don't have the disks for anymore. Might be inexpensive complements the. Ps the tv was one of those purchases that i always wanted to make. But i just never. I never made because i had the thing and i do very often and it it always. It always sucks me up. Where i'll see a piece of hardware that is not doing as hot as it should and i'm like i'll see it on amazon on sale and every time i'm like it could be lower like you could go lower. I could wait for it like how. How much is this going to be in a couple weeks. And then i get there and the price does lower again. I'm like but could have galore there. Glow like that's that's the place. Each classic is the place that you can places you classic like one hundred bucks or something and then the price going down lower and lower and lower until it got like thirty dollars an hour. But could i get a deal though. I could get a deal on this and then ended up disappearing because they all sold out. Fuck i just got it for thirty dollars i remember. Ps tv launched and it was like kept getting cut kept getting cut and then they announced that they were cancelling it and it just went up when i think about hundred or something dollars two hundred dollars an hour those to someone in chat shepherd you can get nasty caught in download onto a ps leaving boom. The more you know the one the one instance of me actually being able to follow through and buying thing i think was the steam link. I think it was called the steam link. Oh yeah yeah. And like. I think i got that for five dollars at game. Stop and i used it. Yeah five dollars. I never used it. But i did get a An accord from it which is yeah no l. sick as a cheap way to get an ethernet cable. So i remember queuing at your game. Expo twenty twelve. I think it would have been twenty eleven acute for over an hour to get an onlive console never used it and instead just Used the batteries that it came with because my experts control about treated died. And i was like well thanks. I'll know if that's so. Let's talk about story number. Five legal starwars skywalker. Saga has been delayed. This from at t t games on twitter. They posted a statement saying all of us at games are working hard to make legal star wars. This guy works the biggest and best ever lego game. But we're going to need more time to do it. We won't be able to make our intended spring release date but we'll provide updated launch timing as soon as possible. I know this is a sad one. Specifically for courtney is looking forward to this one looks so delve. It looks like one of the coolest. Lego game ever just like the game playing. Like how like revamping everything. And it's like full like original voice acting and stuff like this seems to be like the lego game. Not just because it's star wars but like what they've been doing to build up this lego franchise across like the the marvel ones. Dc ones and everything It's an exciting. Lego game coming out. And so yeah. I'm said we're going to wait a little longer but they they can take the time To to make it in the vision that they intended was this supposed to come out and did a quick google. It was spring. I got delay to this though. Because i think it was originally supposed to come out spring last year because i remember seeing it got announced announced like when we were in quarantine last year. No it was it was e three twenty nineteen. Yeah i remember. I remember seeing it flow. This god this is a bad year. A warner brothers. Yeah it's not great like it's not like everything is being delayed from them. Yeah yeah no. One of those things is because like the. Yeah the were like is it specifically warner brothers. Everybody but warner brothers just had more tied to this year. We're already seeing you know Or we were supposed to see right. So yeah yeah. I think this is definitely video games. Just cross board from from all deb's where you're seeing. You're seeing a lot of games get delayed. This is a lot of people. I saw a lot of people. Were a little bummed about this one. Because i think this is one that people have been waiting for for a while by the pandemic with work from home and also with like seeing cyberpunk and i think that having that game be be the example of just just just make sure your game is polish and ready to go for your lisa. I think you're gonna see this a lot and this is another one in the list of games. okay blade. This year i think part shortages as well cannot yet commun- be understated. How much you know. The difficulties in getting new consoles not even just new consoles but like pretty much every single aspect of gaming and with brexit t t games are in the uk The renew import charges on stuff thanks to brexit and so it's just a whole omni shambles to use the front there's a shortage go on the shores. We talked about on this show a few weeks ago. That yeah that's been affecting everything and then like yesterday. I was listening to games daily. And they're talking about how the The suez canal blockage. Oh that delayed the The gameboy thing. That people are looking for the pocket. Oh that's why. Yeah that's that's why i got delayed. Yeah and so. It's a series of unfortunate events. When i say that. I don't mean book series. I mean legitimately series of leamington. The jim carrey movie. Jim carr- the james the netflix series. Which is actually very excellent. I need to get back to it because that season one was fantastic. He's in two and three are just good was really okay. Bat that's high. Praise high praise the ending of season. Three is like weird and whatever. But that's also because the final book in the series was like we're whatever. But i digress. We'll speaking of must watch. Tv news story story number six the last of us. Hbo series will begin filming in july. This is adam bankers at aegean according to the director's guild of canada. Last of us. Hbo series set to film. In calgary. i don't know why that made me laugh. Canada puts them respect on canadian. Direct is is just an unlikely source when you're talking about last week you know what i mean. According according to the director's guild of canada the last one was also. They haven't killed the last was. Hbo series is set to film in calgary from july fifth. Twenty twenty one to june eighth twenty twenty two as reported by cbc dot ca kagera union for film and stage technicians also confirms that the series is set to begin production this july. Dm canada just can't can't hold it in the adult. They got it all out in terms all these reporting news the last was. Hbo series will start at the main main laureate. Pedro pascal as joel. And game of thrones bella. Ramsey is the first easing said. It said to adapt much of the original game from two thousand thirteen but some of those will deviate greatly from its events call. It seems like it seems like. We're gonna get this in a timely manner than the uncharted movie. Thankfully the uncharted movie. I know they. They're in post production right but that movie feels like fever dream to me. Oh yeah feel like something that exists the toll. We've seen pictures from the set. We've seen pictures. Tom holland in costume. Etcetera etcetera. i just don't think it's been around for so long. The mark wahlberg was originally. Like maybe intoxicated nate and now he's so like that's how long it's been her. Yeah i remember when. Tom hall was announced as they and everybody was like two young now like well that means a grown man. Now you know like. I'm sure it'll be fine. It's so strange. And yeah i mean the last of us i think the the one big thing i've seen a few people in the chat hearsay like it's set to film For year yes. It is is it. Is it going to be filming for you or is that count is putting in you know pre production. Because i if if you're building cuge sets i mean maybe not even necessarily well. He might have to build sets to give it the full big post apocalyptic vibe or a lot of time for post-productions out that end and it's like a cross country journey so i'm sure that's going to take a lot of just like different shots. A lot alike different. Which mccall like going to different locations in in in being able to film in order to get that i get that feel of traveling all the way from one side of the country to the other way. I wonder how much that's going to be. It's very possible that they have set that time period because they can testify that That covert is going to be slowing stuff down. 'cause everyone's gonna need to be if not already vaccinated. Everyone's going to need to be tested frequently. You know factor in things like what happened with the batman that kept you know. Starting production people getting covid robert patterson and then the whole production being shut down for bed for two weeks and so it's like maybe factoring that in because a year does seem like a longtime. Yeah and a lot of people to chat or mentioning. They're trying to do that to capture the seasons which i will say i had a. I had that same exact thought before. When i originally read the story but then i was like That worth it not like would you want know filming. You're feeling for a whole year what you can do. You can simulate that right like fall spring summer you can just like just added the equates or something yeah or do that or they're not trying to boyhood this like boyhood and it's an indie darling because it was like literally the passion project of the director. This is still being ran by corporations who are trying to make every save money of effectiveness. There's no way that they're like. Oh yeah we'll let you guys do this for an entire year because you want the authenticity of the city of caesium. And here's the thing right it's wintertime riley. You get to winter and lasts west. Hear me out all right. Get the ladder. Tear a bunch of piece of paper and just sprinkle sprinkle and boom same effect. What how much money you just saved. Instead of instead of doing a year filming that trees save the trees. Save the trees the trees. I mean. that's what you'd see. That's a use for trees right like film production paper boom and you can recycle the paper. You could recycle the paper and back after you're done. Thank you awesome. We did it. We solved everybody. The last is part. The hbo series will be here. Sooner than you know. lucy. I'm very excited when the last series realistically does come out. But that's probably just so far away. If i wonder what's coming out to mom grab shops today. We're gonna look. I didn't prep you on this at all. No you did not know if you go to the line. Boom list of upcoming software across each and every platform as listed by the kind of funny games daily show host each and every week day did it. T t t t.

Arcade exclusive title from one of the world's finest developers of action games platinum games after being the first shop chapter of this title which had a surprise released today. I'm already intrigued by setting an art design which leaned heavily on traditional japanese folklore as well as it's surprisingly complex gameplay mechanics it stands out as a must play on apple's gaming service and then justifies the cost of a month subscription. If you're not a member already again. This looks really cool. The platinum game with a really cool art style commie us look just commie. That is that is the. Oh i didn't. I didn't hear the name of the game and i was like. Oh no kami siegel who comey's like one of my favorite games. All the time. And i saw a few tweets today that you know a platinum doing something and obviously platinum was forged from the ashes of clova who made economy commisson on worked on economy. And oh my god i mean. Obviously you know playing as well. I mean she. I mean this play character. Just sort of have ami's coloring but damn okay really cool stuff. L'arcade i'm very. I mean there was the mu weeks ago on. Ps lovey. where. Greg told everybody that goes to my game and told me to get an iphone. The still happening. I'm still not getting an iphone. I'm gonna rock my android. But i'm very jealous of all the apple arcade folks And so go get him play role demons. It looks up your alley and again very jealous. They all get have that. We know new dates for you and we got no deals of the day but bear you know. What would you got. We got a squad up of course go to page on dot com slash kind of funny games right in. Let us know the game. You're playing squad requests you have. We'll read them right here. Just alphonso alphonso wrote in with the squad up on. Ps five and xbox he says looking to play outriders. I play on xbox. Because i was afraid my. Pfi glitch when trying to carry over my demo progress the full game up for squad up on xbox or cross play with ps four slash five currently wrote here five and level. Seven if you wanna play with alphonso on some outriders are gonna add alfonzo with the xbox xbox usually speaks space beliefs that it speaks beliefs and on playstation five with the username speaks underscore. Sorry score i'm just. I'm refusing to respond to blessing until he admits that he put the links and last-second saying oh dude. I know it's a bit. I did put the leaks in before the show. I didn't highlight them. Which is the thing i usually do and probably was thing that often did not highlight them. So that's that's on the blue though. I'm always good at them. I don't think these were here. I don't know man. it's a conspiracy. They're they're they're all how close before the show. Did you add them. They might have been a lot saying. Okay okay. Google docs also alpha. Alfonzo mentioned here right. You're afraid of your demo. Progress carrying over. I as far as the outriders like dumb version of full version that should be the exact same processes xbox and so you should be fine. If you're scared you're scared. Don't be scared. Try it out. So i am on xbox. Can i transfer that to playstation. If i log in with my square x. account or do i have to do it again on playstation game yet to do it again. I don't think he can transfer progress. Because it's cross play. It is not cross progression. Gotcha okay i playing pyro monson. I wasn't really feeling. I do wanna try. What's the the class. Greg's playing tricks fixer. Really cool tricks looks really cool. I chris has lots of flashy moves that i did. I switched to texoma answer. Mainly for the turret. And i like it doesn't have that immediate. Yeah like satisfaction you get with. Trickster were immediately. You feel like a bad ass. But as i'm growing and developing more skills. I'm feeling better and better about my character. Because i just got a healing ability and again it's very basic i press are one and everybody gets healed but useful dying. I'm carrying the squad on my back. My shoulders are sore.

Enlisting listening later on podcast services around the globe We got one year wrong from md. Y who says hey. They're blessed and lucy a quick note on the show deal. Diamond destiny mode allows you to buy digital packs of players and generates a lot of microbes action revenue opening up opening up to game pass users allows for a huge opportunity for new microtransactions for both.

Kruk & Kuip Grab Some Podcast Pine

"Hi It's Bruce Jacobs Chronicle Sports Department pinchitting here giants splash today I have the pleasure doing Mike Crew Co and Dwayne Kuyper about their thirty years together broadcast giants games talking about some of their favorite moments on the air awkward moment or two and. How they're destined to have perhaps the longest lasting partnership in major league broadcasting, history hope, you enjoy it. Guys, this has been a real test for everyone in baseball players, the media everybody, and you know for you guys you're sitting there and Oracle Park. There's nobody around there's not even a game goading is even there on your rug asking came out of San Diego and. You know I think people would agree that in watching the telecast it's almost like normal and there's not even some plexiglass between you. I mean, what? What's what's it been like? Well, it's it's different and you know the biggest thing is we have a constant dialogue going on during the game that you know something will happen. We can hit the costs which you just look at each other and we can talk you know and it. Kind of. feels. Good to be able to do that with your friend will now out he's a glass between us. And, I, I can't hear that. Great. So he'll go. He'll go. No idea what we say. I missed that little pattern that we have. So yeah, adjustment. We do obviously hear what we're saying with the headphones but those little moments between. In the broadcast where we could hit our costs, which we have the conversation I missed that. So it's it's it's not as good as normally as but it's still great. Plus. Plus Jinx Week. We get the. We get the banter in between innings you know where you know maybe. Bruce Votes you did something and we need to talk about it to figure out what the heck is going on or. We can't do it. We understand that this is the way it is. And we're making the absolute best of it and we can't wait to get to the park to do it. That's the bottom line. Is Difficult as might be it's not that difficult. We still can't wait to get to the park that's point now, you always really missing. Is the. Three or two hours. Before the game where we have so much fun whether it be in the Dugout in the clubhouse at dinner in the lunchroom. Doing our scorecards all that has changed, and that's that's the two or three hours that I missed the most. Yeah. No kidding. And I'm sure there are some moments where. The Games it's a road game somebody hits the ball down the line but the the the camera doesn't follow it. You don't know if it's fair. Afoul. And there's a weird gap there well I. This is not a secret. I'll bet I'd said. On the ground. Floor as telling near Yeah. All that is is just a way of waiting to see what's going to awful. On Road Games. When the should on the ground, you don't have any idea if it's GonNa go through or not. The balls hitting the air. You don't have really idea if that somebody you're out of the park. So on the ground in the air so that the best you're gonNA. Get. With the phillies they had up. Richie Ashburn Whitey Ashburn. And they had Harry counts and they were a great team. It's an example of how a play by play guy watches. The game as opposed to a color Alice. I watched the Monitor I don't watch the field. Watches the Field Harry Kallis washes field. There was a time in. In. Philadelphia where there was a foul ball that went back behind the screen up towards the boot and Richie Ashburn is sitting there staring at the Monitor. The ball hits of rate the chest. You never see. Eric Cal. Starts laughing at him. Hell as pissed because. Very callous awarding. Your bigly. Your favorite thought you were going to catch the. He was bad because he he didn't give awards well. When we're here tonight abolishing fouled up, I'll go for the monitor not trained myself for years. Well, look up just so I don't get. Richie Ashburn right? Yeah. Because he could come back in the booth and he tiny smoke it ahead. With the giants are on the road and we're sitting up in the booth. Will be watching now here at Oracle Park it's guard. Out, there. Hitting back behind hope play in Arizona here. Sam. Cisco going. Look over the walls. So it's weird. That's when you know you're at a pandemic season right there. That's pandemic. All the way Oh, my God. Let me go back as you grew up in Wisconsin during a golden era for the Milwaukee Braves and with Earl Gillespie at the Mike and I'm just wondering. About Thirteen when you know when they're blasting and everything. But what was the influence there was? What was it like Father Earl Gillespie? Look in those days there. I can't remember race game on TV I. Mean the only time to raise run TV is when they were playing the cubs. and. In those games televised wgn. SPN Blaine. Walsh. were. They were your attachment to the game. and. They were bigger to me than any of the any other players I mean Hank Aaron Eddie Mathews here didn't get any bigger than that but real glaspie. At style of his own and I never listened anybody else. So I didn't know if Glaspie was good I just knew that he was my guy you have you tell me what was happening in turned out that he was really good. And then my. The beauty of Earl Glaspie is win. Atlanta braves, stole. Braves from Milwaukee. Earl the job in Atlanta and he said. I'm. Not. going. So stock went way up when he said that. Lesson. Yeah. That was a crusher. So for you, Mike, it's you know stricken Vince Scali for God's Sakes and you're certainly not gonNA nobody's ever going to be him but as new listen to this guy. And then get older. Once, you take from the way Van did a game that you can use. Well then then never. had. An analyst, he was his own analyst He was the color commentator he was the. Play by play guy, he was two guys in one. But any taught me baseball and I and I. Loved Him for it and I thanked for it i. got the. Thank you for that, which is free special. And? Thank him. Every year is better back for that. But what he did, which was so cool and I try to incorporate it. In our broadcast is said he was. He was fair. If if a if Stan musial or Bush chargeable if they did something, you know it was you know he would he would talk about how good they were. You would not be Labor Charlie. Neal. Air. No, he would talk about the abandoned itself. regatta clemente hit a one up topspin rock into journey deal that handcuffed. and wasn't a remarkable at by by Roberto Clementi, and basically there's two sides to every. There's a negative and there's a positive and it's And it's your choice you can make it broadcast negative or. Positive but in talking about the opponent when you talk about how good at opponent is. It makes it all that much better when your team guy does something good because he's just beat an opponent with credibility has learned that from him and it's something that. I talked about and we try to put it in arshile. Scrape because you guys clearly aren't aren't home I mean obviously, you love it when the giants win and everything else. But you total credit to the other team, and if somebody hits a three run homer, it doesn't sound like you just went to a funeral. Not. True. I mean here today actually go almost silent. It's it in you know John's the one that is really. East as it all the time. It's a baseball moment you have to at some point forget that it's against your team. The hardest. Time for us to be liked that was the O'Toole series. When Mike and I enjoy doing the Games on radio, it was hard to give the angels credit. At the very end in game seven. We had to do it. I mean otherwise I mean, what? What are you doing there so I, mean, we were really proud of our work in that Oh two world series given the fact that it took us a long time to get written. Some of us aren't still over it. Now gone they can still remember tearing up when whenever I was riding got. Very quickly. Type A lot of people talk about your voice and you know a smooth and mellow it is. How does Your Voice Up to Your Dad's? oh probably, very close to the same. Tumor to. Yeah I mean I mean, my my dad was a wonderful auction here and some of my favorite memories are listen him when he was young auction airing. But. But helps to be blessed with good pipes if you're trying to do this job. And over the years, your pipes get better. Mean I. Listened Games that I did in. The eighty, six, eighty, seven in a d sound like a different guy so. I'm not in the Harry Kallis mode were. Not Going to stop smoking because I think it's GonNa Affect my voice. And then eventually killed area right. So I do think your voice does get better over time. We'll be back with more crew can type right after this Before one. Gender confusion. San Francisco. Chronicle Arts and Culture Columnist Tony Bravo and I'm hosting zoom event reuniting four members of the fabulous drag theater troupe the copycats. Join US on Thursday September twenty four, as I talked to Fayette houser scrambling cold win roomy Mizzou and sweet pam tent about their legendary performances in the nineteen seventies incredible style and the ongoing influence of the troupe in Popular Culture go to SF chronicle dot. com slash membership for details. I wanted to talk about favorite calls over the years. Now, obviously, some of them come direct quickly to mind the bonds record homer winning the world. Series. Mike. When you think about some of the great calls you guys have had at last they're gonNa last with you whether it was a big moment or not, but comes to mind. Well, two, thousand, ten in Texas. Is One of my favorite moments but along the way there yet remember I go back and I hear some of these calls and I'm in the background going. I learned was you know get out of the way. that the play by play guy doing this is the moment. So we're going down the road in two thousand tonight learned that lesson fifty twenty years earlier and I just try to basically get to get out of the way of those moments and then we started having. Great. Great Mom. Great moment there was no greater moment. In two, thousand, ten and Texas the giants close it out and they won their first championship. And when it happened, I just stopped. Looked and listened to. and. It was beautiful. It was historic. It was concise. It was bitching? I was just. You Know Jersey. My is without moment with down but. It's called. That was just. second-to-none. About you. Also. Mentioned in two, thousand, two and Kenny. Lofton hit that single that sense. You guys to the world series I can't hear like we're. And it was. So you know you were so excited I loved it myself in kind of thing you mentioned where you were so enthusiastic that you're just letting it out, you know on the air. But. It's not something. I guess you know you WanNa make a habit of at that time. It sure. was worth it now it just happens you know I can't dog anybody because I love raw sat out Of It it was. It was fun but I think with our guys you get out of their way. Yeah. Put stands out for you in terms of calls that are really last month yet. Well, I don't think anything will get better when you win your first. World Championship. they they asked me. You know we did so many shows recapping that twenty ten season. I don't remember who asked me about. You Know How do you describe? How do you describe winning the World Championship and it was released? Finally over it. You know. Now we don't have to hear about. This organization ever have been through. So it was relief so that being able to make that call and then realizing that. In two thousand. Twelve. Gave had a chance to make the final call in twenty fourteen John. To make the final call. Here. We are three guys do play by play. We all get a chance to make. A. Final Call. So that was You know when it's all said and done that in a being very important. The bonds wome runs were all fabulous. A seven, fifty, six was. A special moment because we didn't know when it was going to happen in our fans were just dying for it to happen. and. then. You just can't. You can't ever swinging amiss if you're the play by play. Guy You. Know. The one night where and it's gone seven, fifty two. All the can we go. Back So you gotta get the numbers right but I've been really lucky I've had So many that That it just an overabundance in I'm always glad that I've had Mike's next to make those calls. Never think about what you're going to say when a big moment is. At hand or do you just let it come naturally? No I always said I wouldn't write anything down and. Write stuff down. Just because I wanted to make sure that the that the right thing we said. I didn't take out a smart enough to do it up about my head. Lord knows you're doing. Well. Yeah. how about awkward moments, and there's one little highlight reel of you guys were back. You go pretty much off the rails. It's like any vowels in their sir company Uber. which I know you exaggerated but. today-gallup. Got Him. A couple I I don't even know who that guy is that said that. Doesn't make any sense. There aren't any words. That I. could possibly use that would sound or begin to start like Dag yelled got him A. Day It's not drawing ball I. It's like alien came over and sin. Paul it. But it was so funny and hilarious that That it's one of our favorite moments together because it right away said. What was that? That's my favorite call. You almost have to resurrect that someday Oh. Got It. s by telephone ringer. Are you kidding me? There's I had one in Cincinnati. With Pablo. And it was Would it go? I. Drive down the right field. Line foul. Gone. It's one of those. You know. All right. So you blew the call. You. Walk into the clubhouse in Lopez and Crawford you've got. Play playing every five seconds Oh, my God. In there, and now they're they're like standing there lockers like. Smiling. I mean those guys charge your day Fleming, with his home run call renter is when he lost his voice. Would walk on the bus they played in the back. It's differ preview group as the play by play guy is a guy is really vulnerable. You're kind of reacting to a moment the moments you have back. Oh because. I forget the outsor-. Forget who's hitting your? Late. I was talking about. About. Somebody and this guy here is dad we were talking about. Dalton. Don't blur show. So I'm going this is don't more show it he. was, really, good player Gary Marshall had really a good guy at the player and he was a good guy he was really good and the guy who was hitting was. Nikola Okay just kind of just let me run out hoping. When I finally realized that Marcia was on deck. I realized I made the gas and then you kind of you know you can't go and do it. Only shot. Other way that was nick. You know. Dog Is really good. Friend you get. Yeah. Go back to one of the old stick lines that John Miller US exactly that homerun buster was cozy intense. Yeah hundred pitches really good friend finder. But you do that. You just say something that's completely dumb and. You know you realize as soon as you're saying what you do say it. A look over you look at you like. You're in the middle of this to help you can't. You know what happens agendas when you? Start out doing this. Those mistakes? In your mind or devastating. Because you're young addict, you WANNA be. Perfect. But we're at the point now where. You make mistakes. You admit it. And you go to sleep at night you know it's like the vans yet it you're GonNa make mistakes. Yeah. So you just have to admit you if you try to cover it up, you make it worse. So he just admitted, it's not a big deal. Yeah plus lots of lot. Simmons told us something when we were young broadcasters. And he told me and. I just didn't have a good game I. Was Good at end of the game came to put us on my show he goes hey, just remember one thing. You're never as bad as you think your. Body goes and remember you're never as good as you think you are either. And it was such. Great Wisdom. And up. So we kind of a we get over it quickly, but you know. All the time when we listen to Harry Carey. But your name or forget a name or was talking about. South software that had the right first name any give it the wrong last guy who played twenty years earlier what? I'm doing stuff. But jinx part of what makes talking about his. Is. Lawn Mike and the band spot. Lots of you're going to do some play by play right now. So take it. So he put Mike in the spot where Mike is doesn't want to do play by play. Doesn't feel comfortable doing play by play. And Mike gets a triple play. And that's what line put. His armor on would launch should have said is the set of. Mike I put you in that spy but I mean call triple play is hard to do especially on radio when you to call it right away. What's going on? The Cohen like this pop up to the second basically here we go. Here's the person's second nobody out in. Here's the pop up to Second Vegas you got the by. Any. and. Then he got. Out He was over gone on my God he goes. Hey. You got the outright. All right. So I, WanNa talk about some trademarks. The Star with grab some pine meat where that come from. Minor Leagues to sit. You know because every bitch and Was Pine was a pain bitchy Mike and. Every time somebody would strike out somebody would just say grab some pine. Meat new. Perfect. So we kinda spun that off. You know it became funded We still use it every once in a while but. It just right out of the by respite said sits. Very. First Giants Game One, hundred, thirty, seven years ago. Yeah, exactly. How about that night's catcher will be in the squawk putting down the signs. Well. I had a friend of mine who is a? He was actually he was hospital and I called him up. He had throat cancer. So he was. Like this. And he was an old catcher. So. That's how he described it. He Goes Aso's squad tonight was in the squad. In. Any time so I just kind of took it and it reminds me. You might remember day. What? I had. To do with your kids but I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that. Will they said Wes land the bat on in front of TV maybe later, his back legs crossed they start right before Christmas when they use it all the commercials. And they're getting all these new toys and every commercial there's new toys and every commercial after. After the commercials done he would lay there in the Florida say I WANNA get down and get that I to get that. That's what it is. Yeah.

John makes a big deal out of it because he says is better than bad it's. Better. Than Babbitt. It's the funniest. A t-shirt. Magic wand do better than Babbitt. Batting everything you would have. If. Every ball hit hard founded founded became a hit. Yeah. We tell you can just do thing was designed to. Describe what a guys hit the ball Harvard he's not getting any hits. That's the whole idea of the step. John Tag the Magic Wand. Do. Benadryl. was. Just took live is fun. Now crooked I covered a lot of tennis and I remember Bettina Bungie. You got her in there. Someone's Patina Hunky back again or what the hell was that. But. Really one of the most colorful guys we were playing with him. And he would come back as completely ticked off about. You know here we are. It's a one ballgame and to outsiders rare second base. Hit this, the Blue Texas leaguer and a drops it allows the the run-scorers. Behind, and Bradley would come walk into the DUGOUT. They're candlestick it. He goes I can't believe it. We get beat by some God damn not no. Even, if you don't know who it is, it's funny. That made me laugh so hard that we've been using it ever since. I think Bettina Bungie House like seventy four years old. The Rug Castle. How about the stand guy I know that's that's pretty common. Stink Stank Guy What's your affection on that one? Edition and you did it with with. Marble. Bernard. Yeah Yeah I mean look we've always a guy on your team. That's. That either. Gives a steak guy or the always together guy who your team that deserves the stank guy from the other team. A marmon just happened to be that Guy Ritchie really was like that if you got knocked down. A. Jeff Ken had stakeout on. Your. Eventually sank. and. Then there's one. possibly. My favorite someone yawning in the stands and all of a sudden I feel like, I'm GonNa Tarzan moving. Unbelievable. The very first time I. Did the Rhino Yon-. Over some guy that was yawning I almost fell out of my children. and. Then you know put it on the shelf for a year and then he did it again. and. Then we had the one I don't know if it was last year the year before where. It was a husband and a wife did it and we both? Know my Gosh Yeah. I started at the guy was yawning. I do to him and he's yawning his wife start yawning in which she starts yawning type does it for the first time that I've ever heard? And I heard better than better than Johnny Weissmuller. Tarzan Yell Thursday. Oh, I mean I can hardly do because I was laughing so. Can you give us a little sample just Lakes the guy that does. We gotta both fans. You're not gonna hear that very often. Oh My. Oh Man. Well, it's hard to have. Trademarks when you're the play by play guy without getting too Hokey you'd never do but. What's the origin of your of your specific homerun calling a high drive to left? It is out here. Then everyone loves how did that originate? Well, it all started with eats at high. He hits a DP out here. Now that was you know that that was the original at candlestick with Matt Williams. Gary over into this part But after bonds. You know it was hard to call home runs because. When bonds hit him you can say it's high. Because you do they were gone. Yeah. That kind of went away for a while morphed into. High drive to laughter. Hi Dr to Right. and. So that's kind of where that winds at now but as always going to end with the same thing. Yeah. And I, said you imitating something from long ago. That was just something you came up absolutely not lucky was all by accident. And and then people started to say you know what you do that all the time and. Then I think Larry's the one who said Yeah you should do that all the time and with your bosses that yeah, that you do it all the time. I, love the clip where they've your whole run call over your home run. WAS AWESOME WHO It was it was a great swing and was a great call. You can find it on Youtube folks were. Seen it once or twice. Pretty. Funny. Yeah. Should keep going. This guy looks like a power hitter for the future in my mind this. Or you know what? He should enjoy this. He made not in another one. Gentleman. This is going to be a pleasure I'll I'll end with this when when normal life returns they're sands in the parkin things are buzzing. What's the first thing you think you might do when you get to the ballpark maybe hug somebody for a minute or two or? Well. I think for me. I mean. Just been able to talk to the manager talked to Claire Face to face. And then. Some of our most funded you standby in the batting cage. Standing next to Mike. Steady next report to your sleep Hailu or dusty. Baker we haven't had a chance to do that you, Kappler. We only know gate through. You know we've met him spring training a couple of times that he was really busy. So I think just getting the feel of what it's like to be back on the field on the field that we do not get the on the field experience that we've had for forty five years. Nobody you group. Well behind the medication batting practice. That's. Has Forever, one of our moments. Dinner have dinner some believable. But the thing that I am going to look forward to most. In. It has happened with full House here. And somebody a home run and my partner makes it call and I'll take my headsets off and I'll lean out so I could hear. The Fan this. I've. missed. It. got a right down just putting air. The back of my neck is standing up and I missed. That's what big look forward to doing again. That's open sooner than later. Well, I asked the grant Doug Green Wall son of the Great Hank about broadcasting teams and how long you know. What T- lasted the longest you came right up with an Ansari. From. What he tells me, the record is thirty two years with Vince, Gully and Jerry Doggett going back to Brooklyn. So I think that records in jeopardy. Well. We got another ten for sure. There you go. No Yeah We hope you're right Jake's. But I'll say this we come to the ballpark doubt and we can't wait to get here and we take. We we. We treat this game like it's the last one where we're going to do note. And we will tonight. God. Bless you guys. going. To Real. Treat. And I won't see you soon. Wait. We're going to. We're going to get this thing underway I'm. Late. we need to get everybody back at the park. That's. All right guys. Thanks again you bet.

The Next Generation of Baseball Reporting

"I'm San Francisco Arts and culture writer. Tony Bravo and I'm hosting zoom events about the future of fashion after the major upheavals of twenty twenty join us on Thursday. July thirtieth. SF CHRONICLE DOT com slash membership for details. Hello and welcome to the giants flash I'm Henry showman giants beat reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle. My guest today is my counterpart at the San Jose Mercury News Carrie Crowley. Just twenty six years old Crowley has already established himself as one of the nation's best and most versatile baseball writers and multimedia reporters. He's talented tireless, and most of all, he respects his elders. We're GONNA talk to carry about his hall of Fame High School Football Career at Saint Ignatius why baseball writing was not his first choice and covering the team he rooted for as a kid and as a native. Generation San Francisco. Well, how low Kerry? How are you doing? We're one week into the baseball season. Are you ready to give it up yet? I'm not ready to give it up yet Henry I missed it so dearly and I know that it's probably not advisable that we should be doing this that we should be covering baseball as if it's normal but I just love getting out to the ballpark right now it is so refreshing to go out there and leave the house right now that if I'm able to do it safely and in a mask I. Pass up the opportunity. Okay. Well, that makes one of US ABBA interested in So I WANNA start off by just getting a little bit about your background. First of all I it just strikes me when I look at your by O- on the the mercury news page in like at the end of one of your stories, it says that you are a multimedia reporter for the for the Mercury News in the. Bay, Area News Group, and all that, and this is obviously something in my era. We would never have I have have become a multimedia reporter, but the one difference is when I went to school, you didn't learn anything but how to write and how to type in how to ask questions maybe you went to that little school down there in the desert what was that called? You I, imagine that your upbringing as she was a lot different than mine. I mean when you talk about multimedia, what what is it that you train for their well for starters Henry I actually did not major in print journalism, which was an option when I signed up to attend the cronkite school say I majored in broadcast journalism because I wanted to go onto television I wanted to pursue a career in a TV as a sports anchor or is a play by play voice. That was my dream growing up I always wanted to be the next John Miller, day flemming Duane Kuyper, and by the time I was all set to graduate and get my degree get my bachelors and Masters I quickly learned that I was not a very sought after candidate in the world of broadcasting and the writing internships that I did on the side to kind of pay the bills and college we're going to be my better bet to a career in sports journalism and so. I, was definitely trained in terms of bibliography and shooting sequences shooting standups. Of different things like that, and in play by play was really my passion when I was at school. So my formal written education came completely on the side from the internships that I did and it was kind of funny how I ended up pursuing a career in sports writing after spending four years and a considerable amount of money trying to television yet, and you know you, you do a podcast every day now which by the way stop it just just. recapping the game before and if you listened to it, it's almost done like a sports cast where you're talking and then you cut into the audio from the from the zooms that we do with the players in the manager I I would imagine that learning how to edit edit a video and audio when you were in college probably helps you in that regard. Does it not? Yeah it was critical to understand how to do that because I'm producing and putting the entire podcast. Together cutting all the audio clips and then splicing things together with a written script. So understanding how to work programs like adobe rush. Adobe audition. Dobie premier is foundational and being able to do this for me because we just don't have the resources to do a daily podcast. So if it was something that I wanted to do I had to do it all on my own and it's working out so far Henry but I will tell you when I was finishing recording Wednesday. Evenings episode live on Thursday at five. Am I finish up around one am and I was really wondering what the Heck I got myself into yeah. Well, I mean now you're committed for the rest of your career I mean, that's the problem. Now Y- you just explained all of the different programs that you use and what I heard was Bob. Blah Blah Blah. But I'm sure that some of are younger listeners to this podcast will know exactly what you're talking about and I. Marvel, even at the we we hire I, mean the people we hire now are multi media reporters especially for the gate not just to the gate I mean for the online portion of our website. You know we have online only only reporters in they better have video and audio experience coming in. Now going back to your broadcasting career, it's probably a little known fact 'cause you don't advertise it very often, but you did do some play by play in baseball release color work. Back East did you not? Yeah I was the play by play Voice of the born braves and the Cape Cod Baseball League for two summers and giants fans might be familiar because I'm sure they've read your stories, Andy Bagley Stories Alex, Pavlovich Stories, and. Plenty of others have written about all the giants draftees who came out of the Cape Cod. Baseball League Buster Posey's Jock panic brandon cropper brandon belt Tim, Linski they all spent their summers there before they got drafted and so it really gave me an opportunity to ingrain myself in the baseball community to get a handle on play by play broadcasting and it was incredible because I look across the Major Leagues Henry and the First Base platoon that my born braves team was using back in two thousand fifteen was the left handed hitter was Brennan. McKay who's now pitching and playing first base for the Tampa Bay rays is a two way player and the. Right handed hitting first baseman was Pete Alonzo who was the rookie of the year in two, thousand nineteen and so five years ago I was going out to elementary school fields or high school fields and calling play by play for no one. No fans in the stands and watching these guys tear it up and ultimately become a million dollar bonus guys right and You know of course, the scouts loved to go see the wooden bat leagues they have them in the Midwest they have they have an in anchorage, Alaska and Alaska because you know these guys are all hitting with metal bats and you can learn different things by watching them. On a wooden bats now you have been doing fill in work, it can be our So you're keeping up some of your you know your audio skills I mean, do you still have a dream at some point to maybe do television or radio on a full-time basis? I think absolutely that that would be my goal is to somehow do writing and radio or TV at the same time. I'd love to be able to cut back a little bit on writing and do a little bit more multimedia and cover bay area sports in the entire various or seem like that. But right now, I feel so fortunate to be filling in are on A. Part time basis I'm actually doing Friday morning show at five am so the. On a Friday morning will be treated if there are any at that time of day. So I, I've really enjoyed it. It's just a passion of mine to be able to talk about sports and to do it in the area where I grew up because quite frankly henry I I don't think that I would feel comfortable going into another market and talking about the local teams because I don't know their history and you can learn it but you didn't grow up with it. And that's what gives me in my opinion a little bit of an advantage here in the bay area is I was born and bred in San Francisco I grew up reading your stories in the Chronicle John Shea stories in the chronicle Bruce Jenkins Scott officer were to my favorite writers, and so to have that kind of foundational background was really critical for me to have have the confidence to do this and I'm saying that. I believe you're succeeding in spite of reading my article. I was going to ask you about your your upbringing a little bit now you know you're you're you're from San Francisco family obviously a tell us about your allstate of career as a defensive back at. Well. My career is a defensive back. Didn't last very long because I started there one game my junior year. I. Varsity starred ended up having an interception but the other team also realized that if they attacked me on every play their chances of scoring absolutely skyrocketed to an exponential degree in so I, moved over to the offensive side of the ball for my senior year and started running back and we were okay we went three six warning the regular season and in high school you get into the postseason based on your strength of schedule and so we play a really tough schedule we got in as the seven seed I got. Hurt and that was pretty much. The best thing that ever happened to my team is when I went down installed my current roommate as our new running back, he was the fullback at the time ended up playing in college as a running back, and he outrushed me in my ten games in the three games that he started in the playoffs absolutely historic performance for him are championship game was actually against Sacred Heart Cathedral Oracle Park in two thousand eleven the only high school football game ever played it Oracle Park. So I won a trophy there and in two thousand eleven I had as many championships there is buster posey. Well. Did get to play in the game at Oracle Park I did not I went out for the captain's coin toss because I was well trained in determining that we always wanted to defer going into the second half and that was something that was lost on a lot of players, but it was not lost on me. So I, it's funny I I don't know if you know Bonte Hill, but he's a commentator at I do ninety, five, seven, the game, and he was covering that game, and so he he did the lead up to the week for for the San Francisco Chronicle he was doing some San Francisco examiner work as well. He was stringing and he interviewed he came out to interview the players heading into that championship game and he interviewed me even though I was on the physically unable to perform list and we're GONNA play. But the coaches thought that I would be the best speaking representative at the time for the team and so I, ended up talking with Bonnie and that kind of honestly sparked my interest in pursuing a career millions for training. Absolutely I learned on the giants splash on bonds as the best I mean he he he was so good at understanding the high school sports. He's a local San Francisco guy riots no surprise at all right on in you separate your shoulder. I. Believes what? Yeah I did I separated my shoulder I could have gotten a cortisone shot and played but not advisable for an eighteen year old and as we found out not advisable for my team as as we just got so much better when I was Yeah. Yeah Modest Now Yeah how many generations back to your family go in San Francisco six. I like to stay the on my mom side. I, think it's six on my dad's side. It's five I like to say that we were here before the potato famine hit Ireland. So it was right around that time. Yeah. They came right to San Francisco and it is it has been this way in the Crowley and Hayden families in the eighteen fifties. Yeah. I don't know if we were a gold rush Californians are not specifically my mom knows the whole family history, but we have been in the city forever. So there's a lot of pressure with this the reason a of housing prices here too for me out and and making seven generations. Yeah I. Mean I. I don't WanNa I. DON'T WANNA get into too much of your personal life but you live like think in a house with eleven people out. I definitely like I mentioned. Yeah. There's there's five of us out here in the sunset district five blocks up from our high school and it was the the running backs who live here together now while shameless Crowley coming around I'm going around the Cape in eighteen twenty seven. While I mean, that's that's an amazing story. You really don't see a lot of sports. Writers who who are necessarily ingrained in the city that they're. They're covered. I mean A lot of them come from other areas because they've done an internship in a end up staying I mean aside from the fact that you grew up reading chronicle writers in examiner writers in what is or anything about having grown up in the city the things that makes you think that Makes you suited for doing the job you have now That's good. Question I think that just my family's history and my understanding of growing up and listening to my mom's stories of going out to Candlestick Park with her dad and watching Willie mays and Willie mccovey and her favorite players growing up, and then my dad talking about Jerry Rice Joe Montana Bill Walsh understanding that history before I was born really gave me an interest in that. But but the thing that I always go back to the gives me such an advantage round here is really having an intricate knowledge of the immune system because my mom would put. Me On the tervell when I was growing up at ten years old, she'd give me in a friend a ticket to the game when no parents are giving their their kids that type of freedom. But I love getting on Muny I I was obsessed with public transportation when I was a kid and I still somewhat am to this day and she would put us on Muny. We go to the Ballpark we'd sit in the bleachers and watch the game, and then we'd come home and they'd pick us up from West Portal station at ten, forty, five or eleven. Yeah you know I I talked to your mom when she told me that she kept give you one way tickets to the ball. Before we go to break here D. do you remember your first giant's game of the year and what happened I do it was June eleventh two thousand the day after my sixth birthday Shawn estes pitch and he pitched an interleague game against the Seattle. Mariners and he got shelled I informed Shawn Estes this last year when I was talking to him pre game at Wrigley Wrigley. Field we were just sharing stories about how I got into. This and his thoughts on broadcasting I said you know you actually pitched in the first game I ever attended. He goes out I do and I said what you were just awful. I mean you made it really hard to root for you and I think he had a pretty good sense of humor about that. He he does. So if I'm doing my math correct if you were six in two thousand that would make you sixteen now, right? Yeah. Okay well. We're GONNA talk about the giants now that we've got your history and we're GonNa talk about the first week of the giants season and we'll get there right after this. Hi I'm Joe Gear. Fully we're heading into the home stretch twenty twenty campaign, and if you WanNa make sense of the trump biden race and all of the other important campaigns and issues in national and state politics than join me on it's all political. You'll hear from some of the smartest people around from candidates, the journalists to experts, and I'll be there to. It's all political wherever you get your podcasts. Shulman here from the San Francisco Chronicle giants splash with mercury news giants beat writer can be our voice part-time Carrie Crowley. We're recording this probably about What about thirteen hours after Mike? Put One in the water to win the game I was not able to get out to the park last night I did watch the game and I'm just wondering first of all, what was it like watching a walk off homer at home obviously a walk off homer with nobody in the stands totally bizarre totally bizarre I won't get over that scene Henry from Wednesday night because we were both at dodger stadium last Thursday for for the first. Game of the two thousand and twenty season there were fans we knew it was going to be weird and I still thought that there was somewhat of an energy in the air that night maybe it was a, you know just the nostalgia for me of baseball coming back. Maybe it was the way the dodgers were piping in the crowd noise a little louder. But I did feel like there was a little bit more energy a little bit more intensity and life to that game, and so you get to the ninth inning on Wednesday night at Orca Park and the fog's rolling in you don't feel like anyone's going to be able to knock one out of there and then Mikey Stransky. Some celebrates and it was incredible to see the giants poured out of the Dugout and do their social distance celebration and walk off the field and that was it. Usually that that fans hang in the stands. There's the extended celebration there's the onfield interview with amy. there. was none of that on Wednesday night and I don't know that I can completely capture that senior or I don't know that it has sunk in. Yet that this is the reality. All I'm saying I didn't hear anything you said elevate. I just did it did seem weird. So. As we will record this again, they're three and three having split four games in Los Angeles and splitting. The first two games against the PADRES is there anything you've seen in the first six games which is now, which is you know one tenth of the season. That leads you to believe that they could be one of the sixteen teams. It makes it into the postseason. That's a tough question because four I would say eighty percent to ninety percent of these six games and I know work dealing with a really small sample size. But for the vast majority of these Games I've thought they'd look lost I. You know there were two games in Los Angeles where they didn't look ready they came and got boat by the padres even though it was a five three game, they never have a chance it felt like on Tuesday night and then for so much of Wednesday night it felt like it was gonNA follow the same script but Henry this team is showed pretty impressive resilience to come back and win the final two games against L. A. After back to back. Blowouts to have that late comeback with with Donovan Solano. Hitting the three run home run that was so improbable on Wednesday night for Salon to go deep at Oracle Park. So the fact that they've showed resilience during the first week of the season does lead me to believe this team can weather a storm and the first half schedule is really daunting. It's really difficult. This next road trip could make or break their chances to be quite honest with you but in Games Riley yeah. Exactly. But the fact that they've showed this resilience is a sign that they at least have to still be consideration for one of those sixteen spots in it's way too soon to write them off. Yeah, I mean. I'll make a statement and you tell me whether you agree with it. The strength of this team in twenty twenty is going to be a bullpen. Yeah one hundred percent I agree with that in seven days ago I would have completely disagreed with that. But there are a lot of young unproven and fearless arms in that bullpen and these are tough and when they're being used in small opportunities to get three to six outs at a time when many of these guys were former starting pitcher so I think that they're well suited to match up with some of the roster's they're up against. Yeah. And you know, I, think personally to the rotation once it sorts out has a chance maybe not to be top echelon rotation but not not not the worst either because Guzman and Smiley who are both going to end up starting I believe I mean th they're. They seem to they seem to be pretty good. They seem to have an idea and they both also seem to be guys who could benefit from pitching year I think some are. A getting him on track? The way he was last year is going to be you know interesting in Boy Tyler Anderson last night kind of showed that you know he may be captured talked about that. You know the are trying to prove they belong in the rotation and then an outing white tyler Anderson's last night. I'll let you know that he might have a shot I. Mean You you think we could see a rotation I mean it's my view anyway you know Quito Gausman smileys. And Anderson, before a couple of weeks route. I also would add logan, web at mix. Yes. I think that by the end of the season Logan Web has the potential to be the giants best pitcher. I really believe his stuff is that good but you're right about these guys in the newcomers in Gospel, smile and Anderson Smiley looks much more like the two thousand, thirteen, two, thousand, fourteen version of himself. He didn't. Twenty, seventeen, two, thousand, eighteen he didn't pitch in those seasons in twenty nineteen hundred back from injury and man he's got the electric fastball at the split can land for strikes. He could be good on any given night in Anderson really impressed me on Wednesday night because. Get the rough outing in Los Angeles. I just didn't think he looked quite ready to face the dodgers but he carved up that padres lineup. He's so good with runners on base that pickoff move is elite and I do think that if they're facing the lineup two times through and if they are limited to four or five innings at a time and turn things over the bullpen, then this starting staff can be affected. If you're trying to get more out of them I'm not sure that's going to work but that's not gave cavilers philosophy anyway. Did you like? Did you like Cueto's reaction? I mean. We had him on the zoom so you can actually see his body language before you know before I finished asking the question in English before Irwin even translated it. When I said, how do you feel about this new thing where you don't face two times through the more than twice through the lineup and he started doing things with his head like Really asking me this. Watching Johnny Cueto on zoom is an absolute treat and it reminds me I need to cut up some videos of Johnny Cueto on Zoom because not only does he understand Edrich question in English extremely well, he could also respond in English if he Is He's got a master the language. So it's funny that he's still uses the translator and I appreciate it because it's precise. But Johnny Cueto Yeah I think that the whole concept of throwing four to five innings at a time and only facing the lineup twice is something that he's struggling to wrap his brain around and you could tell from the the score Ramon assume call this. Early starting that that he agreed with but yeah So have you gotten any Joey Bark questions at all? Yeah I think that every five minutes. There's a new Joey Bark, question Andrea wh. What is the the Joey Bark question that's on your mind. Well, the joy part question on my mind is how do I keep answering the same question over and over and over when the team is never ever going to admit that this is a service time thing and you know absolutely that this is a service time thing but you saw Chadwick trump last night. Now he didn't get a hit and maybe it's harder to see in person when you're sitting behind them. From my view on television I thought he did a really good job behind the plate You know whereas whereas Tyler Heinemann may have been giving strikes away. I thought Chadwick trump actually a few strikes monkey could be a little quieter back there but but the point I'm trying to make is that the way caught last night and the way Has Been Hitting and I. I realized that in four hours, this could be obsolete because could make the move and bring them up because they're past the service time key. Moment, but they really don't seem like they're under a lot of pressure. Do you think agree that they're not really under a lot of pressure right now based on on Heineman and trump to get up here? Yeah. I I. Don't think that it's a decision that has Sony made today tomorrow or even by Sunday, I think that they can let joy bar. Take a few more at bats in the minor leagues and see a little bit more what they have and Chadwick trump because I agree with you. Henry I, actually had the TV broadcast pulled up in the press box last night so that I could see what trump looks like behind the plate and he was easily the best defensive catcher of the trio. Far In my opinion I mean he really did look like he had a knack for framing pitches that were on the edges of the strike zone and I didn't expect that because all we heard so far with trump is his bat is what's going to carry him potentially to the major leagues potentially to a part time role, and that was a pleasant surprise for the giants. But with the way that Haydn's been hitting with the way that they wanna, see trump behind. The plate I just think that you know you go ahead with those guys and then four days from now if you're not getting it, then you pull the plug Migo with joy bark for the rest of the year. But I think that they're not under the same type of pressure that they were entering the season that they are right now right on and you know at somebody on twitter yesterday said that while all of us beat writers are are good Your your guy, because you know you need you need a for the young generation and you're going to be the guy for for twenty years and you know what? He's not wrong I mean because the rest of US beat writers are. No I. Mean we could still bring it but I mean our time is short probably and I'm just thinking about you perhaps in five years from now watching giants team with Patrick Bali behind plate Joey barred at first base markle Luciano. Elliott Romo's guys who aren't even in the organization yet who who? Sign internationally or draft high kind of making up the core of the next contending team of the giants I just wondering if that excites, you knew if you'll be around long enough to cover that team. I think you'd have to ask the local employers if all around long enough to cover this because you know every every day I think you know there's uncertainty surrounding jobs in the media landscape, and so I never liked to get ahead of myself. It's honestly one of the reasons I really try and do so many different things. It's where I try to podcast. That's why I try to newsletter that sort of thing just to because if you're not adding value, you're going to be the first person that that gets the acts when these hard decisions come and our decisions have been coming in the media industry for. Ten to fifteen years and longer than that, and they're going to continue to come in. So it's depressing in one way that you have to. You know wake up at seven am and write a story after getting home at midnight. But at the same time, I also feel energized by it because I really do a love watching baseball. I love covering baseball and and I love covering at my home market I love being around people who followed the team forever and who have long-term perspectives of the giants organization. So when they see that you know the giants may be didn't put their their most competitive roster on the field. And Twenty twenty by keeping Joey barred out they're not afraid to call it out because they feel like his longtime fans of the team they're owed a competitive product and they can say what they want and I really do appreciate all the back and forth we have with people on social media even though some of it tends to devolve sometimes usually from me. So just last question here for you might have to think about this for a minute. It's something all every one of us who's ever covered. Professional. Sport probably as has thought about who is the one person player coach. Or whatever when you when you finally met them because of your role, you know you're finally able to meet them. You you Kinda were a little in awe is there is there one person you can think of? Yeah, I was Tim Lynch Tim To come at the twenty, nineteen Bruce Bochy sendoff I got to shake his hand and I. I got to have a conversation with him about You know him coming up and me listening to his starts for triple a fresno actually remember sitting around the computer and listening to the audio stream of lince competing, for AAA Fresno against the Tacoma rainiers. and. He he went back and forth with me he had a great story about his time in Fresno and Tim Lynch for me. Was that guy I'll always be in awe of someone who looked like the common man going out to the mound and just dominating majorly caterers and so I I really feel like I haven't had too many of those experiences but Lindsey Graham without a doubt was the answer. Yeah. Well, mine was Ted, Sizemore so I think you win. You'll have you'll have to google that one. I wouldn't I went a little. Okay. Thank you. Billy Grow Barca it's anyway Thank you for joining me Carrie on the giants flash and I tell the listeners here that this is going to be a little reciprocation because an honorable on your podcast I'm GonNa get to answer the questions you get to ask I.

Larry baer this is a good week to welcome larry onto the podcast because of course the home owners. Friday larry welcome. How are things going. Are the preparations coming for getting things opened up finally for fans on friday. Thanks susan things are going well. And it's i i have to say there's so much pent up demand i think both you know in the community but also within the giants organization to be able to welcome back fans and it's a believe it or not it's been eighteen months or so since september of twenty nineteen since Fans were last able to attend a baseball game. And you know it's gonna be. I think a a day and then the first home stand will be really a feeling of gratitude and a reflection that we've been through a lot and last year as a community Ballparks are really a way for people to come together. And though they'll be some physical definitely a separation and we'll be sitting in pods and we won't be literally next door to strangers was staying. In the ballpark. I think there'll be a great feeling of continuity and camaraderie and i think it will be emotional for me. I know when we get to Friday at one thirty five for the first pitch and even the the ceremonies Became earlier around one o'clock on friday afternoon. Yeah what sort of fun things are planned do you do. You guys have a few tricks up your sleeve with things to welcome fans back with. We do and a traditional form we. We're not gonna do too many reveals before the before friday but we are going to. Have you know. I think a really you know meeting full upset of ceremonies. That will recognize All that we've been through as a community and it'll be on it'll be upbeat also be You know recognize The her heroism. That has been just such a part of our community and a word that we were going to be using a lot. Because i think it represents our community Really well and that word resilience. And i think the folks that you'll see honored on opening day will be individuals who demonstrated resilience Through all we've been through in the last year and and You also a lot of gratitude for for for them. And it's the first chance for folks in san francisco to relate to get together in in larger numbers and and pay their respects and and data tribute antastic. Now i know that governor newsom just In fact before we start talking was it was mentioning that maybe sometime in june full opening of the economy i think mid june What is the hope level there that perhaps at some point you get a full stadium. I don't know if you can hear. But i'm knocking on wood right now and crossing fingers can't hear me crossing figures. Maybe you could hear the knock you on what. You're what what we're trying to do. Really susan is. We're trying to you know look to you. Know being better than april. June being better than may and it's we know it's an incremental process and we know the health numbers have to remain good We're really proud of san francisco. The bay area in general and the san francisco community specifically because their numbers have been terrific Compared to to other parts of the world and And i think terrific that's not to diminish the fact that there are certain certainly have suffered in our own community but relatively good and if they can continue relatively good and continue to improve. I think and we can show that the fans safe procedures at the ballpark. Which we believe are going. Make the ballpark. Arguably the one of the safest places you could be Outdoors that We're going to be able to get our ourselves to to a place where it's going to feel a lot much more like normal and much like the experience. We're used to for baseball a later in the season. And i don't wanna put a date to that whether it's the all star break whether it's june whether it's the second half of the season but You know we're cautiously optimistic. We can get there now. You you mentioned to me when we talked briefly The weekend that you guys were going to be looking at how the yankees homestand went because they have some of this similar protocols in place that you guys will have. You had a chance to talk to them. What were your impressions of how things went for them. Yes we we've talked to the yankees in the yankees. Have a new york. City has some of the same protocols san francisco Relating to being prepared to show a test of a negative test and left any two hours or poof vaccination and And wealth the with with the yankees. And what better than than They had forecast and everybody. The great thing is that the fans in new york and i think it'll be similar in san francisco. They understand it's not exactly going to be the same experience that we're used to gates and not the same experience used to at the concession opportunities as we as we do concessions online and and the various things but but but fans were willing to to know go through those different processes knowing that just like we were saying a minute ago that will come out the other end In a in a place that you know probably in twenty twenty one. Hopefully in twenty twenty one will be able to be Be back to a normalized situation so I think the fans have that in the back of their mind and and really really Encouraged by and want back to To baseball and in person and having been to a game as i know you have games Without fans it's just it's the game of baseball ha- has to really thrives on the energy of the fans and having the fans back even numbers of that nine thousand on opening day. Eighty eight hundred nine hundred That's a meaningful difference versus zero abs-. Absolutely i mean. I don't think the fans will ever be taken for granted by anyone again at on on the business side of baseball teams. Which are you run. I can't imagine anybody ever has taken for granted. But i've heard so many players and media members saying i missed the fans. You're set some of the games in scottsdale. How did you feel things. Went there with also limited capacity. Won't we were things went. Well we were very conservative. And i think that's if there's any message for the fans We are really looking out for your interests in terms of safety health and safety and We want the fans to trust us. And i think in arizona were able to test some things and the the distance seeding and the way to do concessions. While the protocols arizona were different than san francisco we we really doubled down and went beyond what was required Because we felt that we wanted to Just to make sure that we we had a safety for not just fans but also for our employees people that were working in arizona. A slightly older workforce also. And so i so went. Well we had it was safe and we expanded the number of fans that we allowed as overtime we started only the five seven hundred range and then we ended up in the fifteen to eighteen hundred range so we we tested all systems and create some good learnings for For when we open ear In san francisco and did you. You obviously able to go to games at oracle park last year. But did you have a out to we. Did our family had a cut out. i said it. When i when i went to a game i was seated. You know separate from my cutout. So i guess i was very duplicate But i i have to say that there was a i was happy to see. The games played but i have to say susan. I don't know if you felt this way that you know it was almost a hollow experience and it was sort of a sobering experience being there because i as i said earlier. I mean the energy of the ballpark and at the community feeling. And it's you know it's high fiving the person next to you when something good happens for the giants even if you may not even know that person right. You're if somebody's sitting next to you and the the family connections and everything all that that my favorite my favorite activity one of my favorite activities in the ballpark. I won't be able to do this. Initially this year is to walk through the stands and see you know mothers and sons and fathers and daughters and grandparents and grandchildren and high five them and and And just see that soak up the the energy of of a great community experience and and that was missing last year. And we're gang a little bit of that back as we start this season and hopefully we'll get it all back soon and And that's you know that's something. That's really i think. In many ways uniquely unique to baseball. And you don't necessarily have as much in the other sports. Yeah absolutely. I mean you know i i know so. Many people that have formed lifelong friendships. Just the ballpark from people. They sit next to regularly or you know round up talk into in a concession line or something i mean that's right also also the people along those lines at work at the ballpark. I've had our guest services. Staffer ushers and security kick takers ticket sellers the years who have got to know that the customers and they go to the their life events they go to birthday parties of customers and they go to you know bar mitzvahs weddings and and everything and you know and they get birth announcements in their seating section has a baby. I mean it's just really. It's really a beautiful thing. And it's an extends over over decades man. That's going to be so so great to see all of those people again now. Let's let's turn the focus to the team on the field. I know this is not your purview. That's of course in the the baseball operations people but so far. What are your impressions of the team. Is somebody who watches every game and And runs the whole shebang. Yeah well. I think we're pleased with the direction we're going you know. It's it's been a situation where we're trying to create a trajectory where As as some of the younger players that are going to be in the minor leagues this year or early start in the minor leagues as they develop were able to Stay competitive if the major league level and that's a that's something that's that's tricky Winning in developing but it's also We think with four hundred scott and gabe. It's also doable. So we wanted to be really competitive. Were right now as we speak with five hundred Beat the padres last night. We think that We have some really good. I play one year contracts on players and we also have some players who've been around awhile. Ooh have that there They've got a lot left in the tank whether it's Other longoria buster posey. And so i think it's that mix with the younger players that are going to be coming and some of the younger players who are here now. you know in the outfield with yeah's and dickerson and solano. So i mean it's it's an interesting mix and we think it's it's it is also a a team of good personalities right and you've got to know some of them. And by the way welcome to the giants. I just said that at the beginning where we're thrilled to have you You with us You know going for gold sleep for many many years. Giants beat writers by the way don't tend to come and go now around for decades the plan. That's that's that's like a play and talk to my boss. I guess the other thing. Susan is i i do. Think that The systems have been put in place as it relates to instruction idea. It's pretty noticeable that the that the improvement in the in the offensive statistics and the offensive approach through the hitting coaches through gabe. In through the folks that have been working with our position players You know that was noticeable last year and it seems to be picking up had four games. I don't wanna make too much out of four games but it it that peers to be picking up Where we left off last year and you know if there was ever a hallmark of the giants through the years long term. It's been you know a power hitting team if you go back to basin mccovey and bonds etc and Right now as we said. I believe we are tied for the major league. Lead in home runs. Yes that sounds that sounds right. I mean evan longoria. All by himself. I think practically so that i only make too much out of four games. But i think it's gonna be exciting and i also you know the we're going to be you know. We're we're versatile approach where If something isn't working or adjusting to be made in the middle of the season I think you've seen that far on and and scott or willing to do to do that and you know we're not you know we have some bumps on the road as you saw. We did last year. We'll we'll we'll adjust as we go. We'll be back in just a moment with more giants. Ceo larry baer in just a moment but a reminder you can find all our giants coverage and the rest of our baseball coverage at sf chronicle dot com to subscribe you can go to sf chronicle dot com slash pod. I'm wine critic esther moberly i'd love it if you join me for virtual tasting of the gold medal winners from the san francisco. Chronicle wine competition will meet award-winning winemakers taste few of my personal favorites from the six thousand entries from all over north america join me on april fifteenth by registering at sf chronicle dot com slash membership. You mentioned sort of the fact that your team is really getting this reputation for a kind of cutting edge data and a coaching staff that it can apply it obviously on the pitching side. That's the case too. I think you guys are attracting free agents. Who feel like it's good. Landing spot for bounceback seasons. Obviously gausmann last year in smiley. Now desclafani aaron sanchez. Guys like that. What are your impressions on. Kind of how how. That is all coming together especially with this. Very big very young coaching staff but Kinda right you know right in the mix with all the advanced technology and data yeah. That's that's a really good question. Because i think that where we are now in baseball it used to be sort of on the analytic side. It was drafted in the advantage. The competitive advantage was on hugh draft. Or how you evaluated. And now it's really become sort of the rio. Ground of competition is the ability to develop or the they'll the ability to take to take a picture or a position player and develop them in the minor leagues or actually help them in real time in the major leagues. And that's where the competitive advantages if you if you can do it and and we really feel good about The coaches on both sides of of of the ball. I didn't want to just you know. Highlight are hitting coaches. Are pitching coaches. Have been terrific. Any kevin guzman had a breakout year last year and quick i start this year And i just got finally we. We feel as somebody in that category. That has the ability to to really emerge and had a really good outing last night In san diego so we that's a. That's something that i think you know. All the teams are focused on that. You have to have the right folks to do it and we re really confident in the in the coaching staff. We have and with real. The by the fact that the coaching staff came back in total last year so there was one actually one one got recruited away but Pretty much twelve hundred thirteen. It's not that that's pretty. Get thirteen a lot but yeah it's a it's actually very impressive in there also young. It's sort of annoying except for exit invested. So they have to. have you know really good coaching. That's a strong investment for for the future. You can't have too much Too much knowledge no for sure now do business. Executives have favorite players. Do not like to play favorites. I mean you could cheating say mace. Do you do find yourself with you. Know kinda rooting for your rooting for all of them. Obviously but do you have favorites. I it's it's because you you develop relationships with the players through the years. Although i have to say when in the cove it last year and this year You know it's the the interaction is really confined to texts and emails and phone calls on so you know it's interesting. My favorites tend to be Not necessarily the superstars but the but the but the guys that go all out and And and really give everything so on the field so You know i. It's not expensive anybody else but I would say like somebody is a favourite because they did get to spend some time with him before Spring training was was curtailed last year. And actually when when he came over to the giants the year before and a trade is Dupond debone He's he's just such as let's love his story. You know from honduras which is which is. I the very very few players if any had ever come from endurance goes to sacramento is a Is you'll reveres brandon crawford in Growing up in sacramento. Because he played his position and saw the giants win championships with with craw at shortstop. And then And and even though Dubious is playing center field. Now which is great. His turned in to You know really good Center fielder his shortstop second base. Where was his position before. And it just. It's a great story. It's kind of like almost a You know a turn. Back the clock story to brandon crawford holding up the sign as a four year old with his dad at the games following the giants and saying save. Save my giants back in the nineties when the giants almost moved so I love the human interest stories in the way that you can sort of circle back. So those are the stories like the gravitate to and the people But you know there's so many other great folks. I mean buster and kristen posey and what they've done in conjunction with the giants organization and on their own with their own initiatives around Childhood cancer pediatric cancer You know he'll always have a special place in in our hearts for for the person he is as well as the as well as You know obviously the hall of famer. The is yeah and man. He looks rejuvenated this year. Ian longoria both that's Which is so great so great to see because i think when you see teams that do well. They often are balance you know. It's not usually an all veteran team is not usually an all young team. It's the teams that kind of get there at the end Tended to have that mix and you know and then you can also add to that mix. I know a lot of times. We did this with when we have fairly young teams fighting for the playoffs. You know whether it's adding a pat burrow or hundred pence mark scooter l. in the middle. So you can you know the team. Is you know susan. The team you start out with an april is very rarely team that you end up with if you're in a pennant race in september So you can add to that. Yeah now One thing. That is your purview. Being on the business side is Things that do deal with ownership and players in the union and all of that One thing that sort of looming. After this season i think you know where i'm going and it might be a little bit contentious after there were some contentiousness last year in developing all the protocols and again this year with the expanded playoffs in the d. h. conversations but the cba. What are your thoughts on on the next year. Cba and You know how how much of an issue might be or you feeling pretty optimistic about what i. It's hard to to lay odds. I've we've been through since i've been with the giants. Now he's been through four or five. Cba's and there's always at this time when you're a year out there's always the the sort of gathering the information coming up with the strategy and that's the stage were in doubt so i can't really handicap at what i would say is that You know while. They're their differences. I think we there's a lotta commitment from the owner side to you know to to have a system that works for everyone. I think there's commitment from the players side. And i'm optimistic that we'll we'll get there. It's not to be faster easy. But i'm optimistic that we'll get there and and Keep the game on the field for the for the fans. What about Universal d. h. Expanded playoffs i. Is it still possible at all this year. Or is that something. You think factor. I think you know. They're all tied to rule changes. We'll be titled cpa because the players as they should have you know. Have input on that. I think the one thing was clear. From last year and these were coded necessitated changes to the rules but also allowed us to experiment things like the extra enrolling with around second base and we hit already introduced the three batta rule. And even the seventy seven inning doubleheader second cable doubleheader Some of those were were well received by the fans. And so we're also you know to allow us to do some research and and sample fan opinion on some of those rules. So i think they'll be. They'll be a rules that will Discusses by the collective agreement and see where the players heads are. And see if you know just all in interested to make the game better a universal d. h. Same thing You know we haven't had a rule changes in baseball really If you go through the the other sports your basketball with the three point line and then f. l. with protecting the quarterback and baseball. It's been pretty much other than the original gauge in the american league. That goes way back into the nineties. this was Or before that even You know baseball has an rule changes so you know to tweak to make the game better for the fans I think is in everyone's interest. Yeah now and other area in which you wind up getting involved in everyone in ownership now kind of winds up getting involved as politics have kind of come into the game. Every sport at every level as the recent moving to the all star game showed And the giants have a couple of times had to address some issues with one of your principal owners. Charles johnson who a kind of step back a little bit at this point To various different political organizations. What what did you think of the way that the team handled that team stance on some of those things and are you concerned about this being an issue in the future. Well i think they look. The giants have always stood in the community for you know for on issues that are important to the community. I i go back to early nineties. When we took a stance on on aids and gay rights et cetera. Where and that wasn't something that the federal sports teams had done. So we don't we certainly don't shy away from it I think we also have to recognize though that you know people come to ball games to to enjoy an experience that maybe gets away from politics too. So you know if there's an issue in our community that's important. I know you know in the wake of nine eleven and not all issues that all sort of issues that are on our minds are necessarily controversial. Right so i remember in the wake of nine. Eleven people to the ballpark and you know when there was just a coming together. A communal spirit that You know that we were grateful to be. Americans grateful to be together and Y'all and and i was pretty scared In the days after nine eleven. So so we we look at. The ballpark is at town center. And as a as a place where people can come together and and enjoy a sense of community. We had a We've had for twenty years. We've worked with the With community leaders on violence prevention issues. you know the late to You know to Gun control and other things. So i think that you know. There's there's a role for the place ford and it doesn't have to be you know sort of a hard core hardscrabble politics either yeah Well let's let's switch back to our original topic. Which is the most fun the home opener. Friday what are you most looking forward to. At the ballpark. I'm most looking forward to the recapturing that feeling susan of of just he'll beginnings that opening day brings and this is times ten th the normal opening day. Because it's a it's not just over the winter is over and they whether getting nice and here comes spring and summer but this is a year of of of a really tough challenges in a community where most of us were if we could You know housebound or or you know. And some were worth some folks who are working in dangerous and risky conditions so what. I am looking for for two on friday as really a sort of rejoicing. All of that with all of that in rejoicing the and kind of reflecting on what where we've come as a community and and the fact that through a lot of us really you know vericose from human effort You know in in Healthcare workers and food service workers and in the pharmaceutical companies delivering vaccines way. Faster than anybody thought that That were were. you know. We've we've we're getting there. And i just a lot of gratitude and being able. Even though i can't hug strangers i can only hope people in my pod I'm gonna do virtual hug shoots. I do personal. Hugs to eighty nine hundred people. That sounds like a plan and garlic fries. I think that's probably that might be where. I had vigorous fries. And it's you know what's great is not just eating garlic fries. It's the smell. The guard become like the baseball smell. At least san francisco. I sure yeah. I can't wait. Larry baer thanks so much for joining us on the giants splash and looking forward to a very fun. I home stand for the giants. Thanks so much. Susan and Welcome again to the beat. And it's great to have you and i'm to our fans. It's just wonderful to have you back at the ballpark. Look forward to seeing you.

Fighting fire with fire

Seattle Now

Fighting fire with fire

"Hey, it's Patricia Murphy Wednesday, and this is Seattle now it feels likely resigned ourselves to wildfires, smoke and destruction just part of our lives now but it doesn't have to be that way for thousands of years. Native tribes managed land in the West and prevented catastrophic fires like the ones we're seeing today by using fire intentionally in a minute we'll talk with Ricco rourke about how prescribed burning could solve the West wildfire problem but first let's get you caught on. Forty five miles of US highway twelve over white pass had to be closed. Firefighters battled a new blaze yesterday other places are dealing with historically bad smoky air. It's so bad. The mariners had to postpone last night and tonight home games against the giants. They'll pick up the series tonight and tomorrow night at San Francisco's Oracle Park the hazardous smoke is expected to lift towards the weekend. Seattle City Council has voted to fund council members. Shama saw legal battle against recall the council back the measure seventy one several Seattle residents are leading the effort to recall saw want four six alleged violations including the night. She supposedly allow demonstrators into City Hall during nighttime protest back in June. And Dick's drive in is heading out on the Road Yep. The local burger chain is launching a food truck in November sort of hardcore fans may be disappointed to know you won't be able to get fries. If it still sounds like a good deal, you can vote on where you'd like the food truck to end up on their website. Like. So much of two thousand twenty wildfires are extreme. This year people have lost their homes and in some cases, their lives forests have always been managed but not always this way native tribes have a very different relationship with the land. One thing some tribes do is set fires on purpose to manage lands and make destructive fires less common. Rick Work is the fire field coordinator for the cultural. Fire Management Council in Northern California and a member of the Europe tribe Rick. Thanks for taking time to be on the show Oh. You're very welcome. It's my pleasure. So the term you use for fires that are set on purpose to manage the land is prescribed burning. What's the goal when you do one of these burns? For us, there's a lot of different objectives I started out with just our cultural resources, which is the Hazel we use for a baskets which would carry our medicine, our babies our food in the Hazel that we use is a fire adapted plant. We need the fire to pass through it to create new growth long straight shoots. Elevated in to habitat and prairie restoration and looking at the beneficial uses fire. Removing invasive? Helping purify water as so many things. As you know safety. Right and obviously these were techniques that were developed over hundreds of years. Can you tell me how a prescribed burn changes the landscape? The way we use fire and it's been for thousands and thousands of years for one of the few tribes that has not been displaced in northern America. So we've been here since the very beginning of time and we've adapted with this land, we adapted with fire and the land is at afterwards fire were. A fire culture people for California I heard a friend of mine say that we used to burn between four and twelve million dollars annually. Wow and it brings back our food sources and our animals and our medicine plants and. For me and my crew into folks who work is it gives us a connection to the earth. That is profound. To meet a client fire earth, it's like apply prayer. Nowadays there's such fuel loading the amount of conifers that are encroaching into our systems, stolen things off balance, and without being able to put fire down on the ground. It's Turning into this could flag. Of you know, it's not if but it's when it's GonNa burn to cite these other fires burning a super high severity, it can be. Mitigated. It doesn't have to be like this. I JUST WANNA make sure we're clear because for some people the idea that burning stuff to stop burning more stuff doesn't really compute. So why do we want to burn things to stop a bigger bird? Well. Some of the places where we go in, I literally have to crawl through the brush because I can't walk to put in our flags to brush is so thick that one eight goes echoes big. The the forest floor is just littered with one hundred years of debris. Some of the places hasn't seen fire one, hundred and thirty years. That's kind of like if your house was full of newspapers and you're playing with matches. You're going to get fired but if you don't have any newspapers in your house is probably not going to get a fire. Now you teach people how to do this you give classes how do you talk to them about it because obviously. Many of us were raised in a culture where fire has a very bad PR problem we don't want fire. So what do you tell people who are interested in learning about this kind of management? Well, right now, everybody's seen fire as a monster as the. CAN BE I don't WanNa go out and fight with fire. I'd rather work with fire. And use it as a tool instead of having to engage on this level and putting so many people's lives and property and Health risk. You know you may not even be around a fire and you're still at risk. Fortunately down where I'm from. Everybody wants out there. We know it's a part of the landscape were part of the landscape we insert ourselves into the landscape. And help manage it. And so many different levels and. The support that we get from our community and the trust that they allow me to do what I do. Is One of the driving forces that may be so passionate about what I do showing people the lighter side of fire. Tell me about your relationship with fire Rick when I let a match I, watch our burns. I Love Campfire Yeah as you start trying to. Just, be with Flyer to walk with fire through the landscape. It's it's humbling in its empowering and Sony different things that come along with his life changing. I'm curious how you see our current state of affairs is seems like we're at a point in history now. Where we can no longer ignore. The catastrophes playing out in front of us. So for a guy like yourself who understands this? What do you see six months from now? I see a lot of people. With big fear of fire. And looking at fired historically. Usually walks in the same place. Managing these fire footprints that were getting. I think is a really big step in it. Because now we have these huge areas where the fields are already gone. If we could manage that and then work around that. And learn from that. I think it's a good way to start. People educating themselves, reach out to people because you know people in the fire world. They're more than willing to share their knowledge. By fire, hose and have caches of of fire equipment around you name it. And losing trainings on what to do. You know 'cause removing fuel doesn't mean there's GonNa be another fire it could be a barbecue. You know. So let's be good neighbors and friends and family. You know. Let's pull together 'cause. If. We're GONNA fight with fire. WE'RE GONNA lose. We need to work with fire. That's really what I'm hearing from you is that our relationship with our environment needs to change. Yeah, it really does not just started relationship but our culture. We need to bring fire back into our culture. Because it creates an keeps ballots. And when things he'd overloaded neither direction that are balanced it's often bad's going to happen. Sums GonNa fall somewhere. Ricco Rourke I really appreciate your insight. Thank you.

I'm hanging in there now today. In our examination of big league ballparks will be digging into Oracle Park the home of the San Francisco giants long known as at and T. Park But we'll also be talking about the infamous place known as candlestick Park and look. Nobody knows those places better than Dwayne. Kuyper played four seasons in candlestick and has been a giants broadcaster throughout their stay in their current home. Type thanks for joining US and helping us. You helping a fellow farmer. That's exactly right and we still have the ongoing debate whether it's Holstein's Guernsey's and that that is going to go some day by arm-wrestling unconvinced. Yeah here's the thing the fact that you've got the Mike. How wrong you said GUERNSEYS INSTEAD OF JERSEYS? That tells you how little respect for you have for my jerseys. Okay right point. Well taken you around one now before we get going as I've told you we need distractions in this time. I heard you tell a story on. Nbc Sports Bay or twitter about a baseball brawl. That broke out. And it evolved. Your brother can you please tell that story again for our listeners. Because that was a classic. It's a law setting Bush Lady of in Saint Louis the giants point. I dislike each other a lot and My brother was playing collegiate summer baseball in Illinois and he had a day off and we were playing in. Saint Louis decided jumpers car and And you know come visit his older brother. Plus he knew that these chips meant that I was GonNa take him to the store and buy some closed and then make him look Dress up a farm kid as best you can because I was daddy without the cash. So only he comes into town. Play cardinals Obviously he's the same size as a in. My uniform fits him. He's fourteen years younger than me. I went into Franklin office our manager and I said Franken Glenn can he sit In Our dugout during the game and crank was like yeah. That's not going to be a problem except for the other uniform. He know. Just make sure you know that he stays in the dugout. That's all right. No worries so anyway. The game starts in its micro against walking into Harvard. Totally disliked each other and In the very first inning. Manny trio. Who was coming off a broken wrist and Har it's in the wrist and And I knew that was not going to be good because Mike was gonNA retaliate. And he hits and as soon as an steps into the batter's box and there's a fight this fight goes on this fight around for quite a while it was a good one and And you know we went on the field and we did whatever we do and off backing of the dugout. And I was sitting next to brother and really didn't say much other than you know you talk about the fight and In fast forward to Mike and I have breakfast both got the same. Louis dispatch both at the sports page. And we're both looking at a picture of the brawl taken from the press box straight down and on the field in clue site or to number eighteen. So there's two papers in the pile me my little brother and And by that time he had already left town. You know. There's the cell phones then. I wanted it to him. I WanNa say wha- what were you doing? Which later said what were you doing? And he said well the idea is there can't be anybody in the DUGOUT. If there's a fight so I didn't want to be the only guy sitting in the dugout also known I certainly wasn't GonNa pointed out to But that's how my little brother got introduced to a baseball brawl in Saint Louis and by the way the end of the story is is how times have changed the empires. Let both Mike Cuco in Joaquin Anti Har- go back out and which might gut the win into. Who got the loss of a massive brawl? Benches emptied in the two pitchers are staying in the game right at times of absolutely changed. I can't even imagine that would be social media picture of you and your brother on twitter in the same fight it would. It would be bad. I mean th th there would have to be some serious lion going on for me to protect me and him certainly from. Frank would've been the one that that would have gotten in trouble. And that's the one thing you didn't WanNa do is you know is wanting to be in trouble with that guy so anyway it. It ended up being a great story but something that probably should never exactly all right Oracle Park. What do you remember about the first time you walked into that park? Mike and I my critical and I walk in Park when it was seventy to eighty percent completed and And we got a tour and we got to write feel almost on top of the wall and right field. We both looked at each other and almost at the same time. Said this is going to be a joke. It is so short down the right feline. This is going to be a joke You know you eventually goes out to You know four twenty something into right center field. Centerfield was better left. Centerfield Fair you know. Three eighty five left field you know about as far as you can get but right field was a joke. That was our first impression. Season opened the very first home game. we still think that it's going to be. It's very unfair for touches to write failures. It's going to be great thing I did. Is they protected the short distance by putting that wall twenty feet high. So if you're going to get home runs at least you got hit it. High and And then you know the first game Kevin Elster ball people. It's home runs in the first game and then we knew we right. There's places a joke and as it turned out we couldn't have been more wrong. Almost impossible to hit home runs to right field The one guy and And almost impossible for major league hitters to put up strong homerun numbers in the park. We were totally wrong and a lot of things. We didn't take into consideration. We didn't take in consideration. The fog. The dampness the wind the wind blows through Those open archways in that knocked the ball down so there are a lot of things that That all of a sudden made. Rykiel who so? That's a long winded. Posted impression tied. What was your first impression? You is an artist. Yeah guys I think about the fact that Twenty years on they nailed it. I mean they got this thing right. The first time I visited there was actually for the two thousand two world series. So it's a little bit of a different event. But then as now I feel like the scale of the park and its materials. They really blend in seamlessly with these very unique surroundings every week type. We talk about a different ballpark and I keep bringing this up. The best ones have a very defined sense of place. There is no better defined sense of place to me than Oracle Park. Yeah and then you know what you throw in the aspect of A left-handed hitter could hit. Went in the Water. You could a ball could actually end up into water on the fly. I mean we have from the very first day. We have one camera that sits very high in the upper deck down the right field line and his only job only job is to watch balls. Land in the water on home runs by. I can say right innovators. But nobody's ever done it right. Ended Right So I mean that's the beauty of the splash home runs a record and you know when bonds was knocking them into what I mean. He did it thirty. I WANNA say thirty seven times That that had to be be right on thirty seven times. Yeah I I love the fact that There's probably more ways to get to this ballpark than any other in baseball. To your point you can take a kayak there. You've take a ferry. You can take like rail. You could go by car. You can go on foot It's real unique as far as that's concerned and certainly the views of the bay in the bay bridge the smell and the sites. They're just really really very very singular. Yeah it's IT'S PRETTY NEAT but type is we got ready for this. I was thinking to myself. You know how did you piss off the baseball? Gods that the two home ballpark. You played in. Where Municipal Stadium in Cleveland and candlestick? What was What was your worst Candlestick memory you know? I I it only driven by candlestick When I was with the the Indians at one time we landed in San Francisco to play the as instead of Oakland. And we're sitting on the bus and somebody said He. This candlestick and I was like that's the city So that was the first time I ever saw the first time I walked into candlestick. It was kind of like highly officials salt for the first time when they decided to challenge group piece of land. I walked and it was calm. It was semi was. Also you know eleven thirty in the morning so I really get a full taste of it until the first night game and then I was literally no unintended blown away and the first thing second is this game that we play is so hard. It's so hard to to finally get to the major leagues and then it's hard to play against the best players anyways and then on top of that you put us in a place where it makes the game even harder. That's fair you know you gotta pop ups. You've got the wind that drives out the infield. You've got bad hops. You got unfairness to left field for a right handed hitter. I mean Willie. Mays decided he's just going to go the opposite way and then 'cause he was watching he's thinking well. I gotTa do that to Right Field. So he started the right You just made the game harder and And you know God bless the players that that were successful there and giants has a lot of them because thirty days where it just wasn't fun and in as a major leaguer. We should be fun every day but that plays sometimes made in that fun. What are you gonNA candlestick? I went to one game. There candlestick it was in. May Nineteen Ninety two and it was in the days following the Occur few in the city of San Francisco and in many places in California after the Rodney King. Rioting so I remember going to a game there after having been cooped up in a hotel for a couple of days it was a turn back the clock game against the phillies. So you've got this pomp and pageantry and old cars and anti uniforms. So the game starts at one It featured a bench clearing brawl between these two teams and well the wind started swirling around somewhere in the middle of the game and by the end of the game. The temperature had plummeted without exaggeration. Twenty twenty-five degrees so I feel like my one experience there. I kind of saw a little bit of everything. It was incredibly memorable. Exactly what What Cape Live Kype I'm GonNa have you step. I've lost the last two quizzes and have you step in this week. Todd wanted to do the quiz With Taylor and kite going at it all right we got an ABCD here. So here we go and I have a giants question because of course the giants under manager John McGraw introduced this uniform innovation to Major League Baseball. Were they the first? Mlb Club to a where pinstriped uniforms to be decorate their belt loops to see where numbers on the front of their jerseys or D. where collarless uniforms innovation. What are they? The first wear pinstripes decorate their belt. Loops where numbers on the front of their jerseys or where collarless uniforms guy. You've got honors. What Year was under John? Mcgraw It was before your time. You know what I might. I might go with E. Okay Taylor what you got. Well I'm GonNa make everyone sick on here. I have no idea who John McGraw is. Oh definitely I don't think it's pinstripes. I'm GonNa Lean D with type is why it's a little bit of a cop out but I'm going I'm going collarless. Uniforms one was an educated guess. One was lucky stab. You're both right in nineteen six. The giants introduced the first caller was uniforms and I will. Have everyone know that. They read worlds champions across the front celebrating their nineteen o five world series title audacious. Wow and innovative there. You go brought in. Who brought him back The world champion part. No the the collar part. It was pretty much they it'd be it. Became this very comfortable. Good thing and everybody eventually took them on within about ten years earlier wreck collars contact with the white sox. Big Seventy yes. Yeah team the and they were ugly and and we won't even talk about the shorts. You're blessed better. Uniforms the most thankfully all right. I appreciate IT Jerseys Right Jersey's not cheese get right the next time. No Bra for one Dave. Thanks on all right. All the rules does play by play on mets games for us. And why is the point guard for what is considered to be one of the best broadcast boots in baseball history with Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez Gary thanks for doing this Thanks for distracting us. A little bit. How are you doing in the three of you? How do you keep it up during this downtime? All I'm doing fine. I mean there's spills from a personal stamp. I like an extended off season. Of course you know the world is in turmoil and at everybody's main concern but You know we're doing a little bit of work here and there we We've done a couple of play-by-play efforts on simulated games. Which was a fascinating enterprise. We do a facebook live chat every week on Thursday afternoons We've done some writing for the the S. N. Y. Websites so. We're trying to stay as busy as we can. And and Provide some content and just kind of Tread some water until we're ready to play baseball again. What are the simulated games? Like I know you gotta attention because you mentioned the Houston Astros at one point. Well I you know it's it's a fascinating thing I mean. I'm not a video game guy. You know my kids have played over the years but I never really participated in any of it and well. The first thing is that we were using MLB. The show and the first militant is unbelievable. I mean it's amazing. How much realism. There is in there to the point where there are times when you're doing the play by play of the simulation that you almost forget that you're not watching real people play and then something weird and Quirky happens and and you're kind of Snap back to reality but You know I I. The games all out faster pace. They eliminate a lot of downtime between pitches So If we could play actual Major League Baseball Games at the pace of the The the computer games. I'd be all in favor of that. So I WANNA dig into some memories with you. A big moments big personalities. You got a lot of attention for this great home. Run Call then. You had a few years ago. Give a listen to this looking for his first year. That goes up ten back there. The hits you do team is four textile art the dugout. This is one of the great comets in the history of Baseball. Total load has gone deep. WanNa say Gary. What are your member about that? Well there's so much to it right. I mean first of all you know over the years you come up against a lot of moments right and you never script the call but there are certain moments that you can't anticipate right. The team's going to clinch a pennant players approaching a a a an important record Late innings of a close game when you're waiting for that defining play a game all those statements. You're kind of ready for but the most fun things in baseball are the things that you can't possibly anticipate and this one certainly falls into that category but so much of it has to do with the back story. I mean here was Bartolo Cologne at age. Forty two Differently shaped player from most of what Major League? Baseball has to offer His flammable nature the ups and downs of his career and so he became a beloved figure to mets fans. Not The least of which was the fact that his at bats had become so entertaining mostly in a negative sense right flailing at the ball losing his helmet spinning around Sometimes going up there and just taking three strikes. Every at bat for Cologne was an event and this was his third season as a med now. His first year he had only gotten a couple of hits but he's really worked hard at it and his second season he had eight hits and so this was his third year and he got an incrementally better but there was no way on earth that you could ever anticipate him hitting a home run and you know as it turned turned out. It was the player every major league home run and also add in the fact that the game was in San Diego and there was a cadre of about a thousand or fifteen hundred mess and you can hear the cheering in the background. There normally when a road player does something extrordinary. You don't hear that kind of reaction but because This group of mets fans had travelled at the game. You had that as well so so much went into that reaction and and the the shock value. And the you know the whole way that Ron Darling and I reacted to the homerun. You can hear Ronnie Chuckling in the background through most of it it was it. It was a singular event for a singular guy and I think that's that's why we reacted the way we did and it was so great because you guys had so much fun with One of the great things about the work the you do. Is you go into the clubhouse every day like you as you know. There's some broadcasters who won't do that they kind of keep away from the clubhouse but you go in there just about every day and I'm curious to see if you remember seeing him after that for the first time 'cause I'm guessing you may have said something until you know Bart was a unique figure in that he how do I put this. Bartok's speaks English about as well as I do. But he's reluctant to do a lot of that publicly So you know. We had short checks but we didn't have a lot of intimate conversations. I have to say but he was beloved figure in that clubhouse he He kept everybody loose. He was so unflappable and all the players gravitated to him So to me. That's more of what his clubhouse presence was. All about. It was it was just about how how he interacted with his much younger teammates and how much they looked up to him and You could see from the reaction of his teammates when he hit the home run. Just help love was. What do you remember from two thousand fifteen the night that Wilmer Flores reportedly was going to be in a trade away from the mets and he began to weep on the field. Gazette certainly was something that we hadn't seen before. Well it was. It was different than I think it has to do. With the times and the way social media had Really taken hold. I mean we're doing the game. And we're looking at twitter and seeing every reputable national baseball reporter in the country. Reporting that this deal is done and that will merge been traded to Milwaukee for Carlos Gomez and because we knew it so did the fans in the stands because they had access to that same reporting the only people who didn't know it were the people in the dugout. Terry Collins was not aware Wilmer Flores was not aware and so he kept going back in the game every inning during this time period when we all thought that the deal was done to then at some point he becomes aware of it From a fan and now here's a kid. Twenty four years old. He spent eight years in this organization signed at the age of sixteen. Never known any other organization and he's starting to cry on the field and finally Terry becomes aware of what's going on and he takes them out of the game but that moment cemented Wilmer Flores is status with the fan base in a way that I've never seen before or since you know fan. Spend their entire lives rooting. For a particular franchise players come and go and they come and go among organizations to fans have great passion for that uniform and and that culture and to see a player feel as they do about being a part of that organization and do so so humanly. I think really bonded wilmer to mets fans in a way that that was not possible in any other circumstance. And you could see it then. The next time he played on that That Friday night against the the nationals. When he got a standing ovation every time he came to the plainy winds up hitting the game winning home run the twelfth sending which just added a poetic close to that game And really every moment dafter. That wilmer became a popular player in a way that I had never seen before. Yeah he'll be a guy when he's sixty five seventy years old. They'll bring him back to throw out a first pitch. Never he'll get one of the biggest years among mets fans because that is a legendary story Johan Santana hundred and thirty four pitch. No hitter what he remember. Well I mean for people who don't know the history You know the mets had had some of the greatest pitchers in the history of the game for their franchise led by Tom seaver. But you know also Dwight Gooden and David Cone and Ron Darling. And so many others. And for a franchise that had been known throughout a half century for its pitching somehow Quirky Lee. They had never had a no hitter. Almost became a part of the the Of the franchise that All these pictures some of them threw no hitters before they became met some of threw no hitters after they left none of them ever throwing one for the mets and this seemed like the most unlikely night I Habur member. Santana had capsule surgery in his shoulder. They had they were going very slowly with them in terms of his pitch count in fact. Terry Collins at said before the game that he was gonNA throw a hundred and five hundred ten pitches and in this game against the cardinals in two thousand twelve. He walked four batters in the first five innings was pitch count was getting up there so it was a point in the fifth or sixth inning. Even though he had no hitter intact that we're starting to talk about the fact that there's just no way he's GonNa be able to go nine innings because the number of pitches he's throwing then. Mike Baxter makes a great play in the field and There's a controversial call on a fair foul on a ball. Hit by crawls bell try and now you're starting to think well we're getting deeper into this game and you could see pitch by pitch the agony that Terry Collins was going through it because he is stood. What was going on that? As long as you'll hunt didn't allow a hit. He was going to have to make the decision. Okay leave him in there. Do I take him out? Far More pitches than we know is good for his arm and that became part of the dynamic. And then you'll start to kick it into ear. And he's pitching veteran veteran. Eastbound is up and have to tell you as somebody who is. You know not only been a mets broadcaster for many years. But it's been. It was a mets fan. From the time he was six years old and his seen most of the Games that this franchise has competed in I was convinced as as that observer that it was never going to happen that the mets would never have no. And you get to two out in the ninth inning. And and you'll haunt falls behind David freeze three and now and now you're thinking. Gosh she's at one hundred and thirty one pitches. He's three and no one freeze if he walks him now. What happens and he comes back and strikes Matt but it wasn't until free swung and missed at that last change that I ever thought it was even possible that that would happen and I'm just glad you know no hitters quirky things right. I mean All sorts of no names journeymen have thrown no hitters over the course of baseball history I'm just glad that win. The mets finally got a no hitter. It was a guy of the stature of Johan Santana who was You know one of the elite pitchers of his generation that he was the guy who finally got it. And you're right about how Terry Collins was tortured. I've known him since one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. He wears his emotions on his sleeve and watching that game and SORTA him physically reacting to what was going on You as a mets fan. Did He make the right decision? 'cause I remember talking to Terry. Maybe it was a couple of days after that and he was on one hand apologetic and on the other hand. He was like how I have to. I have to leave in I. How can I take them out of that game? How did you feel I? I think that if you ask Terry today he would still express regret about leaving him in the game. Now if what happened afterward you're actually Pitched a couple of terrific games. Later that month I think he's the rates scoreless innings against the dodgers. If I'm not mistaken but then once the calendar turn to July. Things started to fall apart for him and really he was never the same after that. Now you WANNA make the argument that the one hundred thirty four pitches contributed to the downfall of his career of I know none of knows enough about pitching physiology to to know that for sure. I will tell you this though that. I don't think you'll Hannah's a single regret. I think that if he to do it all over again that he would have stayed in a throwing those under three or four pitches to try to get that no hitter because it meant a lot to him. Same thing happened with David Cone. Nineteen Ninety nine you know. They had a rain delay when he was pitcher for the Yankees against the Montreal Expos He was warming up in the runway outside of the Yankees clubhouse to get ready then he comes back out and he throws a perfect game and It was soon after that. Pretty much straight downhill. But that's something that's always been meaningful to him. I saw David David Contra. One hundred and sixty six pitches in a game when he was with the mets Harrelson was the manager at the time and there was such a backlash to that. That the mets for years for several years after that stopped announcing pitch counts in the press box. Pete Alonso's emergence last year was unlike anything that I've ever seen a you bet around him Take similar what you saw. Well it's it's an extraordinary thing. I mean you know. We knew that that people Lonzo was a big power hitting prospect and If you remember he did not get called up in September in twenty thousand eighteen which I think surprised a lot of people because he had an extraordinary year but what we kept hearing from the reports from the minor leagues was that he was such a defensive liability that they were fearful that someone is to get hurt. Maybe him they if they ever put him at first base in a big league game So there was Then there was the controversy in spring training last year as to whether he would actually start the season with the mets. We had an extraordinary spring. Training was clear that he deserved to make the team and he was going to be a big part of it But you know with with service time issues and you know you go back to the Kris Bryant situation with the cubs a few years earlier there was every chance that he would be left behind but Rhody van wagon to his credit said if he deserves to make the team he'll be there and he was from opening day and from the day the season started first of all he turned out to be much less of a defensive liability than we thought second of all he was every bit the the power threat that we thought but the piece that. I don't think anybody could have imagined. Was THAT WITHIN TWO MONTHS. After the start of last season this rookie would not spend a day in the major leagues before. Twenty nineteen became the face and Voice of the franchise. Now I've been around for for a long time and and when I first started thirty some years ago there was no way no matter how successful that any rookie could have taken on a leadership role. The Way Peter Lonzo did it just wouldn't have been allowed in a big league clubhouse but things have evolved in the game to the point where younger players are taking more prominent roles earlier on their careers. Not just on the field but off as well and Pete in very short order became One of the the the leaders in that clubhouse to the point where at this very early stage in his career just a year in people are already talking about him as the next David Wright the next captain of the mets. And that's an extraordinary thing. I mean the fifty three home runs will be indelible and and Who knows how long their record may last might depend on the composition of the baseball in years to come. But the way that Pete Lonzo has taken the city and that clubhouse Into his own hands and Just he's been a remarkably human voice for this team and it's It's been extraordinary thing to watch. He's a he's a fantastic. It and and I'm very much looking forward to seeing what the next act is. Yeah we talked about the emotional wilbur. Flora's when you saw the reaction from Pete last year when he broke the record for Aaron judge on the field was going through your mind because I I you know what I always think of when I talked to friends and they asked me Batum I say the word that applies to him more than any others the word Ernest like that to me just describes him he is. He's genuine and and you know so many things that he did last year taking charge of Getting special cleats made for his teammates for the the game on on nine eleven So many Community projects that he spearheaded always seems to have the right word for the right time. He's just you know and and I mean we'll get his reaction when he won the the home run Derby it was You know you you there it. He's just he's just a remarkable and You know I'm just so happy for him all right. Let's do a little round of rapid fire before you go throw a name it you moment Jacob degrom well he's just the best As competitive human being as I've ever seen He was a He was a remarkable from the day he arrived in the big in the big leagues wasn't even supposed to be starting for the mets. He was a guy who kind of came out of nowhere but This this guy is as Competitive Human being overseeing and always done is getting better over his six years in the big leagues. I I can't imagine what's to come and you know. The only shame of it is that he started so late. He's going to be thirty two this year and He's got two CY youngs under his belt and who knows how many more he can put together. Before he's done Matt Harvey. He was a meteor man showing his brightly as anybody. Then he crashed are His his stretch from from the when he came up in twenty twelve through twenty thirteen when he started the All Star game in through that year was as dominant as anybody. I've ever seen and then to go down with Tommy John and to come back and throw more innings than any pitcher coming back from Tommy John. Ever throw in this first year back culminating and did that world series game five and Begging for the ball In in the ninth inning. He was extraordinary but Between injury and and some self inflicted loans I don't know whether his career is over or or merely derail but Nobody ever Starred as quickly and crashed as quickly as Matt Harvey and last one. Because you work in New York you get a lot of celebrities that come through city field and also through your booth. Give me a namedrop story about a celebrity. Who walked in? And you're like wow well I mean. We've been very fortunate to have Jerry Seinfeld in our booth on a number of occasions. So that's that's a special treat and of course You know Keith. Hernandez is on relationship with Jerry having Starting his own episode of Seinfeld and Keith gets asked about Seinfeld at least as often as he gets asked about his his baseball or broadcasting careers. But Jerry's been a great great friend to US and It's it's always a special day when we have him around. All right Gary Well. I appreciate your time on this. Thanks for helping to distract this. Thanks very much. Buster you stay will bleacher tweets already. Buster bleacher tweets four. Fry D first up. We Got Ryan mayor our mayor. One fifty one on twitter writes in. Does the current situation kill? Mookie Betts is chance of a four hundred million dollar contract. Seems like the market will shift a little bit after this. What do you think? Yeah no doubt Ryan. It's coming down. It's hard to know for sure. We have to wait for the dust to settle from what happens in summer before we know exactly the context in which he's GonNa step into free agency but just talking with officials around baseball. They do think that a lot of payroll is going to be pulled back. Dramatically Bob mcculskey writes in at Bob Makovsky one. Who's one living person that you've never met or spoken to that?

Astros Games he played when he was in college. Oppose really great defensive player I and of course President George W Bush was the owner of the Texas Rangers. He's friends with Tim Chen.

Last one up for the week centigrades at centigrades rates in. Hey Buster. It has been so fun growing up by the mud. Hens a minor leager got to see develop was curtis granderson. I will not do the pronunciation. He throws out there tweet but he asked who was a minor league player who you remember enjoying following before they were famous other the announcement Kazaa. I think it falls right in line with a minor league player who is named razor shines and when he was introduced the Ballpark in Indianapolis. It was easier. That's an occurred is. I'm sure as part of how they did that one for me because I covered in the minor leagues. It was really cool was skier barnes. You covered for two years us. A great guy played wiffle ball did pretty well against him by the way And after I left Nashville you want up having like five years in the big leagues and I was so happy form after a lot of years in the minor leagues he actually stayed in the big leagues for a time when the Detroit Tigers.

Farm Director Kyle Haines on Prospects' Challenges

"Does the anticipation of another desk lunch of baby, carrots and ranch dressing. Keep you up at night. Here's a cure, extra spicy and New San Francisco. Chronicle podcast by me Soleil how? Justin Phillips. You can subscribe to extra spicy now on apple, spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. Hi Everyone I'm John Shea of the San, Francisco Chronicle and welcome to the giants splash podcast. Our guest is Kyle Haines the giants director of player development who knows all about the top prospects in the sixty man player pool, the seven players drafted and the six who were signed as undrafted free agents. Kyle speaks of the challenges facing these young players without a minor league season, and what the giants are doing to keep them in baseball for. Thanks for joining US Kyle and we're we're. We're talking about today. The giants suspended workouts at Oracle Park. As we wait for tests from the weekend, but. Baseball is a major challenge these days and I'm wondering how you're doing. No first of all thanks for having me John. I'm doing good. I think we're all navigating just such an unknown. Environment and and world and his. You know it's like any other trying time. You just kind to navigate it the best. You can then come out at the end You know a little more comfortable so. Just very uncomfortable times and baseball's not immune to that, so we're all doing well and and. I know We're just getting through it the best we can. You and I guess the best part of Your Day is actually the hours at the Ballpark when there's baseball, but if I could but jump jump right into what people love to talk about, and that's Mark Luciano and I know you love this kid Actually. My final player interview in spring training eighteen year old, but seemed so much more mature got all the tools shortstop six to? He said he two hundred pounds now, and he was added to the sixty man player pool. I thought I'd give you a chance to offer some glowing comments about Marco Luciano. Yeah Nah. He's very naturally gifted kid and we're obviously very excited has been you mentioned his maturity? you know it's It's easy to get excited about Marco for sure and I think the the most exciting time for us. You know being able to get him in a low. Pressure situation, and just you know adapt to San Francisco and the ballpark can being around our major league veterans, and our major majorly coaches and you know having our minor league soccer minor league staff here in San Francisco in him, and this this is just great one that he's playing baseball working out, but number two is that he's able to to experience San Francisco experienced ballpark and You know hopefully become comfortable in this environment so that way someday if if he's ever called up here to the big leagues and in the near future there, there's a few less You know shocking. Thanks to him such as. Being the time in the city and I I'm the ballpark and things of that nature and seeing that third level now so. Maybe he's a little more. adapted to the environment. Well. You get to see what we don't get to see because the media allowed into the ballpark during these times during a certain. Segment of the day, so the earlier group, which includes all these great prospects come and go before we arrived, but I've heard some great things about Luciano at the plate and some of these other kids. How's he looking at the Big League ballpark? Yeah. He's looked great He looks strong healthy Some some of these guys. You just don't know what they were able to do. When they're home. He was able to still stay kind of working out back in the Dominican safely and you know some guys had very little or nothing, and some guys had a lot and. and. He did a nice job. Stand ready so He looks really good. honestly I think it's been. It's been great to see him out on field moving around. Excited to not only here, but also maybe get him to the the taxi squad site. Even work with more and. Being around these veteran players and picking their brain is going to be something that helps them a lot, but easily great so far and you know I'm hoping that at some point, the media's going to be able to get in and out you know. Watch him out on the on the field. Move around and and kind of get more first hand experience on the the. League's have been able to see for. A year plus now yeah, that's happening soon I hear, but there's also joey. Barton. Elliott Ramos and Patrick Beverley the first pick in last month's draft. These are all players. Invited into the. Sixty Man Pool Louis. Toribio, right yes, only be the one who gets the least pub of all those I mentioned How tough is it or was it easy of a call to have those people in knowing that? Some of them wouldn't even play in the big leagues, but it's just about advancing their development. What went into the decision making to keep those kids as part of the pool? Yes, I think. You know it's. It's never an easy decision to leave the people off that. We left off. That doesn't exclude them from being added at some point, but. At the same time. I think it was a no brainer that you know. Some of these young kids near the developmental reps in the experience that came I think in a perfect world. They'd be playing in their minor league cities right now, but with the. The minor league season, being cancelled and the uncertainty this fall about whether you know we're going to be able to do much with our our young minor-league players. It was important that that some of these guys got out and played a Patrick Bailey who you mentioned. Obviously, it's important that we learn him and he learns us that we can help them. Grow, but also he missed all fall. You know there situations like he missed the fall because It NC state because he had a yeah, I believe it was like a broken jaw right, he couldn't. He couldn't play, so he missed fall Baldwin into spring and spring got cut short, so it was important that he gets back on the field and his his getting some developmental reps, because otherwise he'd be almost a over a year with very little playing time if we would held off if if some happened in the fall so. that goes for Joey and in Romo's as well So you know Joey had stints cut short last year with a hand injury, and you know getting cut short. This year just just seemed like it was not going to be healthy for Joey so You know we made the decision to to go ahead and far on obviously when it through, and we picked a few guys that needed this, and obviously there's a lot more than these guys need it, but we only had so many spots. Yes, we can have joey. Bard is kind of a shame. You mention the injuries and now this. Not exactly the. The course that Buster Posey took a tenor twelve years ago. you know there's so many comparisons being drawn, but in his case only seventy eighty seven plate appearances above Class A and they were all AA last year. Never in any and AAA. So that was the idea going in for him to open in the League's. We were told, but but now with the shortened season and. You know the fact that sixty games at the big league? And he'll be developing, but also perhaps available. Who knows they have the universal the h this year? What do you see what bark could do for this team or this organization in twenty twenty. Yeah I mean I think in some regard. Joey probably could help the major league team. You know some regard that We also want to make sure that were were not. Cutting developed short so I think there's always gonna be that tough. Call about. When is the right time? To make sure that Joey is ready for the for the major leagues and ready to to be the best version of himself that he can be when he does. Get there and. you know I think that's going to be a debate probably all summer long to be quite honest is. A win is the right time and. It'll vary day by day, and that'll be a decision nine so. Far. Scott era, and and gave Kappler and others that will be bouncing off each other all the time so. you know there's no doubt that Joey could help in some shape or form probably right now but at the same time we also don't want to stall joys development by you know wanting to see him just in in the big lakes before he's ready. Okay makes sense and Far Hans, Eighty! Said something I've never heard before. You can never have too. Many catchers never have too much. Catching and I knew that about hitching I didn't know that about catching a sure enough. You Have Bailey. You have bark and you have posed in the big leagues. All Star and three time World Series Champs, so that's a pretty deep position in this organization now. How do you see that playing out with two catchers who are elite elite prospects And you know well decorated and on the fasttrack, maybe not to the big leagues, but maybe one day they'll be teammates with the giants. Yeah itself. These things have a way of playing themselves out and. you know who knows probably it seems like. We're looking towards A. Universal D. H. here soon probably, and you know honestly. Personally I kinda I. Kinda liked the national. League style. Not because I like watching pitchers hit I just always like how the pitcher spot is always seems. To interact with big innings and ended up playing apart and and you know creates a lot more of a jockey, but you know we're looking at that D. H., and and as we get the DA with buster and enjoy both being right handed hitters and and Patrick being switch vendor. There's ways to be creative to probably get enough playing time for all of them. This needed when that time comes, and you know these these situations tend to work themselves out and. Having too many good players. Is that good Crompton half? I San Francisco giants, obviously not the fairest thing for for those guys, but I think. Instead of looking for someone who's just adequate, enough and one of them each. You know having having too many good options to pick from is never a bad thing. We'll hundred bishops was your first round pick last year? And what is new with him? He tested positive for the covid before the sixty man pools were set, so he went into quarantine. What's his situation now in? Could we see him soon? Situation Analyses. His home and it will his home in Arizona currently. Corinthian making sure, he gets through his health protocols. The way supposed to he feels great. Talk to him pretty regularly I and He says he's feeling great, and he did the right thing he you know he. He knew he was exposed to someone who did test positive. He tested himself. What, while I was still feeling great, and and the test unfortunately came back positive, and he reported it right away, and He decided to. Shelter in place there, so he didn't expose other people and He very easily could have been greedy and hit from it, and and you know something like that, but instead he knew what the right thing to do was. He's feeling great. He's doing great. He's just unable to. Leave until we get through this. Protocol for for positive case and. You know I think the plan would be that once. We can get them cleared. Get Him healthy that we we can maybe somehow get him some register ups in if it's here if it's in Sacramento in that time or is. Okay and there are. Players who you know, some pretty big time prospects who are not on the sixty man pool Shan't Jelly set corey. Alexander Canario and many others How how do you monitor them? How do you know that they're doing what they need to do? and. How tough is it that they're really going to miss a full season because they're not part of this at all? Yeah, so I mean. We're still hoping for some fall. first of all which obviously get a lot of guys, some help with with wraps if possible, so we're still crossing our fingers on that as for Alexander Canario were actually gonna go ahead and add. He's San Francisco right now waiting out is intake testing just to make sure that when he arise that he's completely clearly. Of the nineteen and and he's feeling strong before he ever enters the stadium, so it's a process that every single person including myself as went through and Sometimes it can be a little slower He had to fly all the way in excetera, but he's. He's GonNa Join I. I believe here soon. and You know further pitching. I think it's. It seems like You know one one area that we really leaned on is trying to make sure that the position players are here getting as many development arrests they count on the field hitting and that the the pitching prospects than are much more able to stay. Home is still working whether it's in San Francisco locally where they're at so I know Sean is working really hard I. Know Seth Working Really and others as well that we haven't mentioned. On the pitching side, so I'd say in general, the the pitching prospects are are kind of guys that guy from sixty man through unfortunately, but we also feel like. They're development. Can still taking steps forward all much easier than the position players? Will have more of Kyle Haines right after this quick break. Does the anticipation of another desk lunch of carrots and ranch dressing. Keep you up at night. Secure Extra Spicy and New San Francisco Chronicle podcast by me so Leho the Justin Phillips Look. I I thought I was going to have to go defend ranch wholeheartedly right now, but. I see what's happening. I'll chill. I'll be cool. Leave it for next time. You'll hear that and more slander every week. Subscribe to extra spicy now on apple, spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. How serious do take those rankings? Because the giants are higher than I recall at covered the team for a long long time, and they've gotten a lot of twenty five to thirty twenty to thirty somewhere on the back end, but the you know the way you're drafting bringing in the international talent. You seem to be rising on the charts. Yeah, no, we're very proud. Obviously it'd farm system. One of our goals is not to not to win. The farm system rankings the win in the big leagues, so I think our hope. Is that You know we can. We can translate a Lotta. These guys and it won't be all of them. hopefully it all, but you know you can't count on on everyone turning out, but. You know if you can create a good. depth pool of talented players in. You got better odds of creating that next. Wave. Home grown talent or Or players that you know can can help at least challenge other players for jobs. and. you know obviously when you're when you're competing for so hard baseball. To build a good farm system because you're always needing to trade for pieces, otherwise, you're just living in free agency, and then you never pick in the draft so it makes are really challenging on the teams who are consistently winning to never make mistakes almost in any traitor or in in the draft, which is or the international signing period, which is really tough. It's tough to do you're GONNA make mistakes on kids this young but You you really, it's hard, it's it's really difficult to win an pharmacist at the same time, but that's up. We're GONNA TRY TO DO. We're very proud of our farm system, but. The bottom line is. We got a lot of really good players. The players deserve the credit obviously our our coaching and some change some player development philosophies has really. Helped a lot of those in between prospects like Louis Toribio at some of the Canarios who are. Signing. But, you know players make price, so the the talent of the players makes us look really smart the minor, leagues. The draft held last month we spoke about Patrick Bailey of NC state at number one, but a couple of other guys who really jump off and you took seven picks in five rounds because of the supplementary picks. having lost Madison Bumgarner and Will Smith. But Casey Schmidt Third Baseman closer out of San Diego State and in the fifth round. Kyle Harrison local kid out of Dallas. L. Lefty who was targeted for Ucla but seems like he is going to turn pro, but what about those two guys? Casey seems to be just a Jack of all trades baseball player. Great Kid I recently. Met Him during his physical role, briefly helped him sign his contract and see my great kid barely excited to get started. He's going to be a third base only for us so even though he did pitch I college team and was a closer i. he definitely probably has the talent to try it, but we really believe him as a third baseman and You know he's just a baseball player. That's that's the best way to describe them, not just Cornerman to. Only a defender only Henry can probably do anything on the field that he wants to do. Defensive Third Baseman who who should be able to hit and you know it's our job. Fire development is to to bring out the most that bat and from all indicators is. He's going to be a really good defensive third base from the first days in our system. Obviously he's got a press throwing arm ninety five off the mound so That's that's a good thing and then from the from the bow. We think there's a lot more there and a lot of good qualities that are there, and it's our job part of to make those things come out China. And then Harrison. Yeah Harrison Young high school left-hander with plus deal for pitching Plus Command Hum, he's already got a good good fastball. Low Nineties maybe can bump it up a little higher fee needed to. Good slider with a lot of potential on it with good command. Feel like we. We got a great prior there. Hopefully he's he's still still got to. Finalize details signed but You know when that time comes we. We feel really good about the player that we're gonNA. Bring in. And being a local kid to help. Support, the the the bay area and have that. Local. you know feel to. The team is always an added bonus. will at and then after such an unusual twenty twenty and so many ways the draft is only five rounds, but then the opportunity to sign anybody UNDRAFTED free agents is what they're called in. The giants picked up six of them. What is it five college kids and a high school kid from Washington but There's there's some intriguing talent in. They're just going down the list the pitcher from Illinois. Tie Weber the outfielder from North Carolina Central carter-williams Will Johnson pitcher from pepperdine. Read our Baca a catcher from Alabama another catcher, from USF here in town Robert Emery than high school kid from Washington and outfielders tyler foreigner. Might address a couple of those including the emery catcher from from USF, and and what went into those signings and woody like about these guys. Yeah No, we. Can you Michael Holmes isn't amazing job administaff. amazing their preparation for the draft, and then that helped kind of bring these these names to the forefront. Of. Guys that we wanted to target You know some teams. these all these kids eligibilities left to some shape or form, and and obviously with the drafting. Bonuses, Being Limited I think a lot of people expected. This should be this amazing amount of talent. A lot of guys could go back to school so i. think we really just narrowed it on a on a on on specific targets that we really valued? Instead of signing guys that are not going to get a try because you have Canarios. and. Guys like that. Who Luciano's who? Who are going to play next year and instead of signing guys that are are not going to get playing time. retargeted the ones that we really wanted in pursuit, those heart and yeah mean we feel very blessed to get the guys we got and I can legitimately say everyone that we signed was a priority target for us. to some degree and it was. Identifies as scouts people that you know we we really needed to have. the our back. Who you mentioned? you know he was a huge priority for us. took a little while. Off Jeez I'm going to. Bet. Half to answer that question. It probably was over. Twenty of thirty teams were pursuing him and. You know he's a catcher utility guy can play. Everywhere does a little bit of everything and we were. We were extremely excited about him, and and I don't want to single him out because I could talk about all the guys because a lot of the guys that we did pursue as well that we have as priorities did return to college, so you Kinda, tip your hat and you know they take their education serious. And they went ahead went back and they have another shot of next year's draft, but. yeah I. Mean I think there's some gyms in there? I know. I was excited about each and every one of them personally but you know on Robert, emery. We would be a fool to ignore what he did it at USF and and how good of a curry had there, and and not to not the key for feet and far Hans saying. Too, much catching his. We'll we'll inert let them enter the system and and see how he plays from there, but we're excited to have the local kid who had a very nice accomplished career USF and Very, deserving of signing with his hometown team. In. Deep. You know everything about the minor league you had in camp in February, and March and multi most of those are now off. The away from the game or doing things on their own in the game, but just not at Oracle Park with the other prospects, and now you have a whole new list of draftees and undrafted free agents. That you haven't had in this system, but now suddenly are joining the system. How do you monitor those guys versus the guys that you know that you've had in the Organization for a year two or three compared to these folks? Yeah! I mean we just compare the best became We're standing contact with them. We're trying to get video from the ones that are working remotely. From what I can. You know it's tough. It's tough. Evaluate these guys. Do we get them side by side and? And really see how they they compare to each other, but. you know we're just doing whatever we can at this point Some guys are progressing really well home gain in velocity, and really working on things that some guys are are kind of their growth, more stagnant so we won't really fully know kind of the effects of this this layoff in midseason. Maybe until next late next spring training after we gotta get guys all the same do and your same thing goes for the non-draft free agents. The drafted players where you know. They missed a huge part of their college season so. They're missing used development when those as well so There's still a lot of unknowns to be the now with with our players. The players that we recently signed. Sure before we sign off here I-. Jalen Davis so an intriguing I i. hear nothing, but good things from far Han from Gabe. And he did it all in triple A. and we saw a little bit in the big leagues. But how good can this young man be? Yeah I. Mean I think the sky's the limit? He showed us that last year between. The twins and AAA and in Sacramento when we made the trade there. He looked fantastic, and he got a brief a cup of coffee their in the big leagues, September and now he's got his feet wet and hopefully now he's ready to take off and I think he's kind of really came into his own last year, and and figured out a lot of things, and the hope would be that he's able to take those that he figured out in Aaa year and took a huge step forward. Announced Transition those to the major leagues which is easier, said than done, but you know now he's. He's got that rookie status already over with then called out he's. You know he's no longer having to carry that burden of my ever. GonNa play in the big leagues. He's He's played in the big leagues. And now it's just a up to him to go out and. Take advantage and seize the opportunity. That's that's in front of him and I think he's. The same player that we saw last year than he has a chance to be a a nice starting outfielder for us for a long time. Well Leslie Imagine how tough this roller coaster emotionally has been for you. Let alone the players, but how how have you dealt with it? From watching these prospects and spring training to having the game, suddenly shut down in mid March, two monitoring all these young players over the past few months to finally bringing them. Here in San Francisco and You know to to to monitor their progress, but I'll you know also to monitor those who aren't here? How's that gone for you? Because it's just a crazy twenty twenty for everybody, but you're overseeing the farm system and that's a whole bunch of people. Absolutely it said I mean I'm not. GonNa lie. It's been overwhelming at times for a lot of but you know this is what we do. This is what we signed up for and especially myself where? I think Mike Tyson always said everybody's got great plan until you get punched in the mouth and in a way we've been pushing her mouth by the by the pandemic here as far as plans go for the minor leagues and how we're going to operate. You know it's A. Big Part of what we do is being reactionary to problems that you can't predict and these these. This is a huge huge problem that we could not predict, and we've just been very reactionary and It's definitely not been easy. It's not been cleaned. It's not been perfect, but we're doing the best we can. I know that and I will our farm system and our coordinators and our staff How well they handled this whole situation. Our players I would put off up against anybody how we've handled this You know imperfect situation We're never going to handle it perfectly, but we're trying to handle in a very. Messy.

Mays the beloved former center fielder for the san francisco giants a hall of famer and a san francisco institution to celebrate. I'm chatting with john shea.

Thanks for coming on fifth and mission. I know you're a regular on giant splash but good to have you on this one as well and the news of the day. Is that san francisco giants legend willie. Mays turns ninety years old on thursday and is expected to celebrate and be celebrated friday night at the giants padres game at oracle park and it will be the ninety year old hall of famers first game since two thousand nineteen. You read a story about willie and his birthday this week. Can you tell me a bit about that story. And what you found out. Well thank you. Yeah ninety i. I everyone i always say what what is it. Fifty sixty ninety ninety. He makes ninety. let good. yeah jeeze. But i've just been blessed. I guess to have this wonderful association and relationships. He calls it a friendship. So i guess i would too with willie mays and i was over at his house to the other day and every time i visit him. It's not fifteen or twenty minutes. It's usually several hours. I wrote the book with him. Co author of twenty four. In which i spend a lotta time with it more than one hundred dollars overall over the course of a few years so this was kind of the same thing where i hang out with them and never really call it an interview. It's always a conversation because We start talking. And then i don't even realize it's an interview and then go back on my tape and i said well you know i. There were some good questions in better answers so The flow is always organic and fluid. Goes where it goes so anyway. From that conversation. I put together a piece that will run in thursday's chronicle which is the birthday. That's today and we have a big spread in fact pages and pages and pages it's really a keepsake this sporting green and we do for some good news. Hey you see a later Twenty twenty we have willie mays. And that's all that matters in life. Guess so the bruce jenkins got osler in and you know what we have dozens and dozens and dozens of short tributes by a whole bunch of people including barack obama george bush and bill clinton and condoleeza rice that i reached out to and when you reach out on behalf of willie mays usually get a reply. And you know. Huey lewis and bill walton in barry warriors in as giants and Own mind so It's it's loaded with great willie. Mays stuff that never been seen before so pick it up. subscribe online at all. So how did he say when you sign this week great. He's just wishes that he'd be able to get to a ballpark because he has not been to a regular season game since two thousand nineteen now he was in scottsdale before the pandemic in march of twenty twenty so he went to plenty of home games. He's always at home games. in the clubhouse hanging out with players managers coaches for office staff and media and he's just always accessible because he doesn't want to be on the payroll and get paid for something he doesn't work for so he makes it a point to always be there now in the past year plus. He hasn't been there because he's been sheltering like a lot of people like a lot of seniors and the great thing is willie. Mays is expected to be at the friday. Homestand opener and that will be willie. Mays appreciation night. I guess i just made that up. But that's what it'll be yeah huge pre-game tribute They'll have a cake. They'll sing happy birthday. He's turning ninety a close circle of friends. you'll see him on the field before the game hopefully That's the plan. So you never know with willie A couple of times where he wasn't even supposed to say a word that peter mcgowan's memorial and berry boxes Number twenty five retirement ceremony. He wasn't on the docket to saving. And next thing you know he's speaking Glorious words of wisdom for ten or fifteen minutes and the game is delayed route. Ten or fifteen minutes who cares. It's yeah you can talk as long as he wants. So how is the past year. been for him. What did he shelter in place. The whole time is he fully vaccinated. What do you know about his pandemic. Yes yes and yes sheltered in place and has been vaccine. Then he's roaring to go he Mrs. being in the clubhouse and that's that's his home but he also you know the world has changed as this story wrote the paper you'll see is Kind of touches on all of that and of course we've lost ten of his best baseball friends. Tim hall of famers have passed since the pandemic the great names hank aaron and bob gibson a whitey floor and lou brock and tommy lasorda and just on and on and on joe morgan. That was real. Hit because young joe looked up to willie raised in oakland. His father took him across the bay to steal stadium. Back in fifty. Eight fifty nine to see willie mays and the next thing joe knows. He's in the big leagues and willie calls him over and said a. Give me a call after the season. Come on and joe's thinking well that'll never happen but thanks a lot and next thing you know. The season ends in willie's call them and say why don't you come over here. You're gonna give me a call us. So i know you're serious at jogos over and spend a whole day and leaves the bags and bags of swag and gear here. You go from willie mays because all this morning goods department stores always gave him a bunch of stuff that he gave rated players and teammates but anyway it was tough because a lot of those people next so much to willie so it was a tough time but the thing with willie mays is always move on. It's okay this happened but let's get a better life tomorrow. And that's been his story knowing where he's come from Outside of birmingham you know the deep south and the jim crow era in what he's become and overcome and you know not not allowing the biggest to get their way and and the here and everything. The jackie robinson heard because he was side by the giants in the minor leagues just three years. After jackie broke the color barrier. So this is a living. Legend epoca icon. Ick figure that. We're lucky to have in san francisco to call our own right. Well let's talk about him as a player. Where would you say willie. Mays sits in the pantheon of baseball. Greats willie mays and there's everyone else i mean that's one way to the greatest oliver all around player in the history of the game and people would say well. What about babe. Ruth and i would say two things about babe. Ruth number one babe. Ruth played during segregation and never faced any minorities of any kind. So even though satchel page was in his prime he never faced them at a regular season game even though oscar charleston. The willie mays before willie mays was in his prime in the twenty s. He never played centerfield when willie. When babe ruth was at the plate in a regular season big league game so he was never able to track down. Maybe a triple that paid So it was limited competition because only white player so by the time willie came along. The game was integrated. It was slow especially in the national league. Where willie played with the dodgers and the pirates and the and the giants and all these other teams and throughout the sixties obviously The baseball was great. Pretty much because african american players In the national league in the sixties ended the secretaries now The second thing. I would say Difference between willie mays and they would say well. Babe ruth pitched and had world series records. It was a great pitcher before it became a great editor. And i would say to that wealth to newspapers in alabama. When willie mays signed with the giants said that willie mays is probably going to be a major league pitcher they actually projected he would be a pitcher in the big leagues because he had such a great art. So i yeah. There are a lot of reasons that willie mays is the greatest overall player. Who ever lived. And i think a majority of the people living today would say the same and he wasn't always a local hero. Can you describe how he was received by fans when he came to san francisco. You're right Nineteen fifty eight. The giants moved west and a lot of people from north beach. You know the italian community a lot of people in the media Beat writers columnists. Maybe we're a little skeptical of this kid coming out who was in his prime and the best entertainer in game. Why because joe dimaggio played centerfield in san francisco at seals stadium. And now mays was gonna come in and do the same. Even though joe hadn't played in the city for twenty years because he was just a teenager with the old san francisco seals of the pacific coast before he became jolt. Joe in the bronx. Well people thought joe was king and willie. You have to prove yourself. Well willie didn't always go four for four with four home runs. And that's what they remember jodi which he didn't but anyway it was a slow For great majority of people accepted him right away. Who wouldn't but it was just intriguing and interesting and amazing to look back and realize that not. Everybody took to him right away. But and short-term it was unanimous everybody loved lanes. We'll be right back. After a short break you can support fifth and mission and the newsroom that creates it by signing up for unlimited chronicle access at sf chronicle dot com slash podcast. And of course he endured racist housing discrimination when he tried to buy a home here in the city in one thousand nine hundred fifty seven. Can you tell me about that. Oh my goodness yeah. He tried to buy a house. November fifty seven moving from new york and he wanted to live wherever the team was. He wasn't gonna just You know move in and rent a place for the summer and then go back to his place new york. Whoever the team was going to go he was going to be established there and that says a lot because you don't always see that with major league players so he found this beautiful home up the hill near friends. Saint francis wood He was one seventy five mira loma and there was like thirty seven grand thirty seven five and bought the house and the owners found out. Well he's black. I'm not going to sell it. San francisco right and the chronicle actually had the story first with the headline and this is what the headline on november fourteenth nineteen fifty seven had across the top of the crop. Willie mays is refused. Sf house dash negro. Wow the what's it was all over the media. Mayor christopher comes by and say well hey if this has any problem you can come down to my neighborhood. You love my place until you know. No no no. I'm gonna stay here at one. Seventy five mira loma. Well why is it not just because willie and his then wife marguerite absolutely love the place but because of the next family who has come in a minority who was going to try to do the same well they would not have the powers willie mays would have and they would be denied. Nobody would write about it right. But because the chronicle did that and all the media outlets in town he became a national story was all over the place well the owner and the neighbors and the realtors everybody buckled. What's the news. Got out once. The negative publicity hit the streets and willie got his house eventually and good for him because he really paved the way for that community for other communities in san francisco you know to to be open to everybody as they should so i mean he was not just a great ball player but showed a united the keeper The you know a hero on many fronts and that's just one example and did he speak out. Generally about race in civil rights issues during the civil rights movement and jackie robinson criticized him for that book he wrote in nineteen sixty four it was normal. History integration baseball and he tried to get all the people black and white from the game of that time to kind of weigh in on their stories and Willie mays and maury wills of the la dodgers would not do it and jackie was critical of him specifically willie in the book and it was hurtful. And it's not that willie. Mays didn't want to do right for himself. For civil rights for african american 'cause at cetera but his father willie mays senior. Willie howard may senior told him. Now you gotta remember jackie from pasadena in a family military didn't negro leagues didn't get to the big leagues so as late twenties College education in multiple superstar. Ucla willie coming from the deep south signs out of high school. And he's he's a center fielder for the new york accent. Polo grounds went in less than a year. So these are different bracket backgrounds in. And it's not like willy's parents stayed together after willie was born but the dad. Maybe a lot more than the mom was there. All the time for for him and raised him and taught him about the game and made sure he had food on his plate and roof over his head and books and a playground and a gloves. And everything like that but Yeah it was It was difficult. It was difficult time but anyway there's so much history involved in willie mays going back. But i spoke with so many people for the for the up from twenty four reggie jackson even hank aaron and maury wills himself who is part of that willie mccovey cepeda a low all. These people have great anecdotes about what really did do for those guys. So well while. Jackie and maybe even hank aaron later in life marched with martin luther king dr martin luther king and an spoke out against racism. Willie did it in his own way in his own way. Meant pulling guys aside you know set set in The by example leadership All that kind of thing so he did a lot of stuff that people didn't know about. That's so. I really dug in on the subject for the purpose of the book that i realized how much he really did do like you. Joe morgan says there's nobody who helped me more than than willie mays. When i was a kid growing up. He said things you know. Make sure you leave the game better than you found it and and be a role model for the next black is coming up and white and black and everybody else just said do the right thing and and willie mays you know. Maybe more than anybody else in baseball. You know it exudes that positive energy to make people be better and racist. Less racist biggest. Be you know less than than what they were. Why would i go to a game as a racist and anti cheer on willie mays and the government looking mayor and so why the hell am. I got racist. You know. and that's when that's what he did. He changed people's minds. Bill clinton told me it's absurd willie. Mays makes absurd to be racist. And how is willie spent his life since retiring from baseball in baseball. Not really retiring. I mean you got kicked out of the game with mickey mantle A few years after he left the game he got inducted into the hall of fame. Nineteen seventy nine and a few days later. Blue and the commissioner kick them out of the game and later Mickey mantle the two greatest players that kicked out of the game. So why well associations with gamblers. While this isn't pete. Rose this is. I worked for the casino. I play golf with the client signed some autographs. And that's it in the contract. That says i can't even gamble. So these are you know crooked. Throw their own games or cricket managers throwing game us a couple of guys without a pension plan because baseball hat allow for nor did they have no big free agency. There was no agency. There were no agents at the time. They were just working for casinos and getting a couple of bucks. So anyway peter ueberroth comes into the game an ex-commissioner first thing. He does is his. Bring those guys back into the game in early. Nineteen eighty-five best. He ever did as commissioner and and That was easy. Pr book are you kidding me anyway. They were in the game and then a couple of years later. Nineteen eighty six spot. Larry the giants brings them back home to the giants because he had been working for. The mets is final team as a player up until the time he was suspended. So for nineteen eighty six until now. Willie mays has worked in the front office as an ambassador The special assistant to the president. Whatever you wanna call it is titled might as well be willie mays and that's all he really need to know at. What would you say. He means today to san francisco into giants. Fans will There's the golden gate bridge. And there's willie mays. I'm sure it's that's the right order though. Might be willie. Mays one and the golden gate bridge too. But i mean the there to people who really cheered more than anybody When introduced at the ballpark. And that's very von's and and willie mays And willie mays obviously Higher octave or two when when things get roaring because shoot very wanted to be willing various. Dad bobby played for the giants in the late sixties and early seventies as as an willie mays mentor him and then years later willie. Mays mentor berry. When berry was going through the tough times just with government hearings and delco and everything like that so it it's a full circle. And i think san franciscans realize especially now. I mean the older he gets shoot. He's always been number. One here is always been the greatest giant ever and you take it further the greatest player ever you know on anything and it's it's just so special that the willie mays around doing the things. He does through his say foundation. He's always helping kids. Willie mays clubhouse Down there at the Hundred the boys and girls club. The i mean there's a cable car twenty four th the statue right out in front. The address of the ballpark twenty four willie mays plaza. I mean he's fingerprints are all over the city and all over that ballpark and You know it's it's it should be and i. It's it's not going away and it will never go away and there's any willie mays scholarship. That's being announced today. Can you tell me about what that scholarship is four. Yeah so Willie mays and the giants and a couple of nonprofits Called live and free and one hundred percent college. Prep they're all in on this and it's it's scholarship program benefiting san francisco. Kids ninth graders Basically black youth living in the city who who You know might not be getting the breaks. Other kids that age are getting and there's going to be five awards every year and it's going to value about seventy thousand per in that class Highschool mentoring and and You know overseeing of all the work with working with the parents to educate them on their roles of getting these kids not only through school but into college and through college Because these these awards include like twenty thousand dollars scholarship so every year. They're going to give away five and the giants you know th they're keeping the door open say maybe one or two or three or all of these kids. One day could be interns and internships with the giants often lead to full time positions with the giant. So anyway it's it's basically helping the community by helping the kids and helping the family making more opportunities for people who ought to get those opportunities but don't necessarily get them unfortunately well as you mentioned before you literally wrote the book on willie mays twenty four life stories and lessons from the say. Hey kid that you co wrote with him. Do you have a favorite story or life. Lesson that you learned from willie mays That's a that's a good one. That's a tough one When i when. I look at all the time i spent with. Willie i i think of a time in which he looked at me and spoke about getting signed by the giants and Reporting to the new jersey. Trenton giants the class. B interstate league as you know nineteen year old high school graduate and like i said this is three years after jackie became dodger so he was here. All the abuse in the in the stands. You gotta remember he wet from the negro leagues. Obviously an all black league to to this to this Interstate league it's called. He was the only minority in the whole league. Not just on his team. So how could that have been. It was just some of these cities. They're going through through the south and willie looked at me and said you know. I don't know at that time if i was going to stick with it and is brought tears somebody. What do you mean not stick with. He said it was too much. And i imagine there's no willie mays imagine there's no bridge bentsen baseball without mazes america without mays and you think maybe going back to birmingham like dad work in the mills plan on. You know maybe return to the negro leagues Luckily for all of us you know. He persevered overcame abuse. He was receiving and and And turn the cheek like his dad told him. Don't say anything. Just just a be strong and move forward and eventually willie mays did say something but in the end he won the biggest lost. And and we're all that much better for it. So i i mean shoot. There's all kinds of lessons about perseverance and and pushing hard and being what you wanna to be in. Every chapter starts with a lesson from willie mays and shoot. I think that's the price of admission right. They're not here to sell books but But anyway yeah lifetime. Experience to hang out with willie mays and to write the book not just about his life. Stories learn about his life lessons. Great well thank you for sharing them with me today. It was fun to talk to you. We'll thanks heather. This was fun. We will have a happy willie.
