"Yeah, so I think people don't know that they are generous music. You don't have to criticize or something because it's not what you are using. So when you see somebody playing jazz, just try it. If eventually don't like it, then you've made your choice. Like we said, it's based on preference. Well, seeing varda. They will just play the song at the beginning and then you'll be like, which kind of song. That gives you this rising. They don't want to know. That bias towards it is like, I know. Yeah. I even have two things. I think it's because I don't know Nigerians. We just were not open to new things. I don't know. It's what you know. So it's not what you know. You just don't, you don't want to have that. And then secondly, you know, you said Osaka that it depends on people that don't really have knowledge about. There is orchestra, you know, this is particular on the obsessed with him. The series on the empire, so we Caribbean. Yeah. So exactly. So I was obsessed with this. And this is a girl that studies music, split plays. So I was trying to look at the skinny and trying to show away those. Were playing and individual like David just amazing. So where do I perform in its life? And it was not as if I was just this weird gilda doesn't really listen to music. So in my head, I'm like, I'm bought. I mean, she plays, she studies the course and everything like that. So it was just like, you know, remember from other levels. So remember, I understand that would go to 2003. So Game of Thrones, it was still around that time. So for the finale. I can't tell you how many times I've watched the performance, even the ramen Java, I'm subscribed to him on YouTube.

"When I am public now you go to a club and then the music experience here is very, very different. Because more enhanced and then they are mixing it with the DJI stuff. But it's not my thing. So for me, listening to music alone is like the top notch on me. Yeah, I think listening to music in public. What depends on the kind of public like you said in the club. I don't like even like DJ mix like that, because I get into the sweet part of this song. Just as simply finish. I think this is amazing and probably is the thing because I get to do the music video by myself. It's my eyes. I can't hear you, I can't eat some happening. I'm just vibing to eat, and I'm looking at people walking, doing what you know, the other, just do music video, but you know what I mean? Because for me, when I'm listening to music, I get to be crazy. Yes. And it's so crazy to do. Well, you also trust me. No, I know I knew. I knew that. Yes. It's so crazy. When I was in secondary school. I know why is it going to school guys currently? It's like, there is to come in my school. This was sometimes seen as the comments in your reverse. I would literally be dancing on the road. I actually stopped feeling I was about to enter uni. Like when I came home for all it is to the actual report to my daughter like, this is your song. It dances on the route. It's all worth it. There's no music playing in my EA. Okay. I'm not the attitude. You can just imagine how that would have been like my hands on. It does mean. Well, of course, this is a podcast. Anyways, I don't know. I would say both because I enjoy music in public parties and with the DJ mix on everything. And then there are times throughout like to listen to them alone. Do you get? So but if it's like music lyrics, like deep, deep in lyrics, like a deal, a cheer on the rest of us listen to those ones in England because I want to listen to what they have to say. But when it comes to last class or Palazzo or you understand, I enjoy listening to them with people that can vibe with and just like say lyrics together and stuff like a new party or any club or something like that. Yeah, so both works for me. But I would say like the spirits like these days to enter. You know when we are like, when you are a loon, this is but to have freedom that you have. Yes. Listening to music within or like the downstairs, you do not know that you had like an amazing way outside. Yeah, that was smart. I struggled to hold back. Music I was wanting to ask. I do have it. I kind of hold back. You usually see my head. In my head, yeah. Yeah. That's how it's useful to me. So mister Osaka music is life. Yes. What would you have if you lost a few life? Oh, do you see your philosophy of life? Life is beautiful. Life is sweet. Okay. Life is a gift. Okay. Except it's okay. There was a picture we had in our House back then. It was just writing that about life. And I was young, I didn't really know that. Life is a gift asset.

"In and be like, let's say the painting scenario and we are working on it. And then I see an intersection with something like that. What the fuck? Forever. That's all whites. I think they have to just where do I see? Why Nigerians cannabis? Because we would know it. So we can't check it out. And also intrigues. It was a white people. Wrong. That's what I did. All right. Play the movie. I would pick. The movie and then be serious. For the movie, I don't want to pick a lot of movies actually I love movies. It goes from music movies. I don't think book is. So movies I would say the director Andy write that and to produce a it was agreement is dead. His name is Alfred Hitchcock. He was very good. It was very good. Very prominent one. He died a lot of movies, but I think one exception I wanted distinctive one was vertical. I did vertical. Yes. I love those two movies very well. If I'm dead, CJ was not really. I had to get creative. I just had to get creative with the hat. And so it was very hard because then there was nothing like the film can just go up to 20 minutes so you can't have an artwork for like 20 to 30 minutes without coating. So this was tough and you had to make good use of that and the action was so good and perfect and all of that. A lot of psycho very much is this kind of horrific trillion. Osaka is very scary. I like horror movies too. I don't read horror what I like watching oro. What do you want to get on now? It wasn't exactly horror no. Yeah, but it had this vibe. I spent a lot of time on Twitter, a big.

"Think Osaka said no. It's somehow spiritual. Once you connect to it, it transcends out of whatever you are doing before. Whatever the situation, music analysts give you an escape. You can always count on music to save you from. For the moment. Because you have to fix your problems, eventually. But for the movement, music can always see people from whatever via going through. I feel like it is an escape. Where I use it is as if wanting to do something and then you don't have this strength to do that. But I know if I keep lying down this window, if I am actually very tired, but if I keep staying there, that didn't be worrying about it. So to prevent myself from staying in bed and worrying about escaping, the old guilds are just please something. Am I just play any album? So for like, how many mornings now? I think since the exams, I would have just been drained on the side. I know how to play music and we bought my choice and I'll just keep me going to help me from the guilt. Yeah, I pull. Another thing is, it gives you this kind of, I don't know, strength. Should I say straight because when okay, I'm also watching it on social media. And I'm tired. It was like plug in that piece and just start listening to music. I can just do everything with ease. Why don't you not check in my body? Are you listening to music? You just want to stop. You just goes on like that. Yeah. Or like walking out slow and wanting to just maybe escape the pain. It's not that you still feel the pain. It's dead, just distract you. It's like, it's like an extra dose of Unreal Engine. Yeah. Exactly. You said no. So no matter what I was like, I just didn't like it. It's dry Abby. Yeah. Yeah. I was like, this dress a good dress, and I just didn't. Is it enough? Is it enough? Yeah, well, you know, since now, we are just present music itself. Dissecting music itself. Well, let's be particular because our major audience now, Nigerians. So how would we categorize this state of Nigerian music now? This state of Nigerian music. Should I say it's mostly hip hop football and stuff like that. We have permanent music shines now. Like when our boy did we do whisky and so I know that no mention of whisky fest.
Naomi Osaka Offends Swahili Speakers
"Naomi Osaka, the kind of player who is just a real big pain in the ass. I like to fire up cross court shot of her face, Naomi Osaka announced last week that she's partnered with LeBron James company Spring Hill to start a new media company. A media company from the girl who doesn't want to talk to the media. And you explain that to me? Naomi Osaka expressed the hope that it would produce TV shows and documentaries and branded content. Again, this is the fraud who doesn't like attention thrust on her. This is the woman who had to step away from competitive tennis for her mental health sake. She said, and then she went on to do a few magazine covers and went to the Met ball in New York City, dressed like a fucking peacock with feathers in her hair. Don't believe anything she says. Now get this, the name of a new venture, she called it Hannah kuma, what she said means flower bear in Japanese. Hold that, hold it because it didn't take long for the Japanese Haitian Osaka to discover, oh, that phrase has another meaning in Swahili in Swahili. I'm not even sure why we care about this Swahili content, but it's why Healy it translates to women with that of a giant. Let's not forget there are 200 million people who speak Swahili, which is the majority of East Africa. So dozens of losers on Twitter in Africa piled on her and they begged her, they urged Osaka to this reconsider that name. They called it offensive. Of course they did. Of course they did. Everybody's offended now by something.

"osaka" Discussed on We Travel There with Lee Huffman
"Go if I wanted to grab pizza in Osaka? I have to say I wouldn't recommend doing pizza in Japan. Although if you really insist, I would say, ask Italians who live in Japan. And see where they go. So if you happen to know any Italians or maybe ask online, where would you go to get your pizza fix? But I would also argue maybe okonomiyaki is in a bit like a Japanese pizza, so maybe that could be your pizza there. There we go. Gotta kind of sometimes you gotta be flexible with your definition of pizza, right? Right. Right on. Well, like we talked about earlier. I mean, you've written for so many different magazines, like time and so many others, and you've been on some of the other shows. I even saw that you were on the show with Anthony Bourdain, right? So you know so much about travel. What's one of your best travel tips? Wow, yeah. It's hard to say because there are so many different circumstances. Best travel tip in general. So you mentioned Antony Bourdain, who I adore, and he has a great travel tip or simply a life tip that I think is really apt. And that is to try your best to arrive early. If you have a meeting, say at 6 p.m., try to be there 5 45, 5 50. And it saves a lot of headache. Having a flight or something, something can happen along the way. And I realize, you know, why stress and hope that the taxi can drive faster or do I need to run to the gate? I think you can relieve a lot of the major stresses and headaches of travel if you aim to allow enough time. So that's what I do my best to do. And if you happen to be there very early, then, well, another opportunity to people watch or maybe try another food or even just get some work done or something. So that would be my major travel tip. Yeah, I think I need to take a little bit out of advice because I'm notorious for showing up right on time. And things happen. Life happens, you know, and everything else, right? Well, often put in Japan that timeliness is very important. So it's considered rude if you do not show up on time. So if you're meeting people in Japan, do your best to get there, not fashionably late. All right, well, carmina, I really appreciate sharing all these amazing tips for Osaka. I've learned a lot. Can you tell the audience a little about who you are, what you do? And if somebody has more questions about Osaka, what's the best way for them to reach on social media? Absolutely. I'm always happy to chat with people online and answer any questions. I have been vlogging about Japan travel, subcultures and all that since 2007, my site is la carmina blog, la carmina dot com or just Google la carmina. And so I have a lot of resources from over the years, firsthand stories from Japanese travels, restaurants, temple stays, gothic nightlife, fetish parties, all the craziest stuff. So I encourage people to check it out if they want some resources on the more alternative and hidden side of Japan. And in addition to that, I've appeared on a number of travel TV shows, including for Food Network, travel channel, CNN, NBC, and others. And I freelance for a different publications, such as time, CNN. Yeah, architectural digests, photos and different travel magazines. So that's what I do. You can find me at la carmina, also on social media. I'm on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, at la carmina, or just look me up. Google Cloud for media, you'll find online contact info and links.

"So you're a dancer. A model an actor an activist. You were the cover model on. The sports illustrated swimsuit cover It's a famous pop cultural institution.

"She was told you are often compared. I'm just remembering what it was often compared to the williams sisters. Maybe it's because you're black. But i guess it's because you're talented and maybe american to And you know this is the kind of thing where if you're a younger woman particularly if you're a woman of color your operating again with an ecosystem that was set up for men and particularly white men especially in sports like tennis and it makes sense that the media isn't necessarily going to treat you with the sensitivity that you or the sensitivity and the perspective that you might have and put the question that cocoa face just then. But you know Serena face questions that have been insulting for her She was hasn't won a handled i'm sure naomi's experience questions that she doesn't want to answer and Basically just athletes saying look finally have the power. I'm gonna. I'm gonna do this on my terms. I mean you can absolutely imagine a conversation between You know asaka a therapist saying look. If you don't wanna do this just say no. You don't have to say no to all of it. They know to the part that isn't working for you and that's what she did here And i it's actually. It's sad to hear the when she did kind of say no to the part of it. That wasn't working for her. That isn't the core of her job. She didn't actually get what she wanted. She's dropped out since osaka's departure. I see the tennis pro. Roger federer also declared. He was leaving the french open so he could rest up for wimbledon. do you see. Those cases are connected. And did the establishment respond differently to federer's exit versus osaka's I mean. I do think that i don't think that the That the cases are related. I think the concern of someone like naomi osaka. Who's so young. Her whole career ahead of her is quite different than i mean. I think they're they're similar in that there to kind of luminaries at the top of their field. But i think different in terms of power dynamics. And i don't i don't think that he's getting by any means the same sort of critique that she's getting and i think the difference there is a he's pulling out and giving very different reasons from what she was saying. I think part of the around sokha is that she was using The i guess it's an excuse or as a as a reason her mental health and it made the media feel like they couldn't touch her or comment on that without appearing To be part of the problem that she's talking about that's very yeah and that's very different than What that are encountered written about the different value that the pro sports were gives to people's mental and physical health right and if we were to start from square zero on federer and asakusa stories. In a way you could say they both Pulled out of the french open for their health The only differences osaka for mental health and and federal for his physical health to rest up for wimbledon. But we treat those things very differently absolutely and i think that's a really big Difference between someone who's thought goes age You know in her early..
"osaka" Discussed on Front Burner
"I want to take you back to a moment at the us open in two thousand eighteen. The trophy was about to be presented for the women's final a twenty year old naomi. Osaka had just beaten the greatest. Of all time serena williams it was a contentious game serena even got into an argument with the umpire. Romasis said game penalty correct. Quaker and as soko is named champion. The crowd booed she cried. She tried to hide her face. It was really tough to watch because you could tell how uncomfortable she was. It was supposed to be the celebration but it's so obviously wasn't i know that everyone was chained for her. I'm sorry like this. And you could see then. Naomi osaka discomfort with being in the spotlight. It was something that was made really visible this week. When she said she wasn't going to do postgame press conferences during the french open and eventually dropped out altogether. This whole saga has raised a lot of questions about the demands on athletes and the media culture. They in happen. I'm jimmy boisseau in today. Caitland thompson from rocket magazine is here. Walk me through this controversy. Hi caitlyn thank you so much for being with me today my pleasure. Thank you for having so the only asaka is more than just a talented tennis star. She's the highest paid female athlete working today for one and before we dig into this controversy at the french open can can you remind us of of what makes her unique as an athlete. Yeah i mean. There's a couple of different things i think for for number one. She's somebody who came up largely in the states The but her parentage is her father's haitian and her mother is japanese and she chose to represent japan a place that she was born largely because they were giving her more support as a junior and she really emerged on the scene kind of fully formed as a fourteen fifteen year old hitting tennis balls faster than many many had hit a from a young person's perspective in a very long time tennis threes auto attendant flood. I'll do anything. In my power get their southeast by and also was a pretty fully formed athletes even from the early years i think she established herself fairly quickly as a real contender. And then obviously as you note in two thousand eighteen really a full year and a half. After she'd begun playing full schedule professional tournaments found herself in a final against the greatest of all time the second time they played that season. Naomi famously paged serena and beat her very soundly. A couple months before in miami hitting from another world's dragging serena williams all around the court there really was thrust onto the big stage at the. Us open a lot of people. Thought maybe this one and done but she backed it up with a win at the australian open very quickly thereafter and then last summer won the. Us open again after having won another australian open. She's see-saw common so she's already won four grand slams and i think what really makes this. An interesting moment is her. Tennis court has been impeccable and really hard to argue with. But she's also. Because i think a little bit in part of the way she means so much to so many different people she's been positioned and has stepped into the role of being really a transcendent star. You know she's somebody who's been an activist. We saw her wearing black lives matter. Protest masks at seven matches at the us open last year and really educating an entire country of japan about the struggle in the us for racial equity. The point is to make people start talking. I mean for me i. I've been inside the bubble. So i'm not really sure what's really going on on the outside world. All i can tell us what's going on on social media and for me. I feel like you know the more re tweets the guts. That's so lame but you know the more people talk about it you know. And she somebody who has noted is is incredibly sought after as an endorser because she's so authentic. She's not somebody who comes with the same kind of media polish that i think is is really emblematic of yesteryear. She's somebody very fresh and very new and very real i think. Along without realness come some vulnerability which is kind of the perfect storm for what we're kind of left to parse now after this.
"osaka" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times
"Wherever. You find your podcasts. We're back helene. You wrote that. Naomi osaka deserves empathy. Not condemnation a message that stands in direct opposition to the quote shut up and dribble crowd. That has long dominated sports stretch and commentary but it seems like this time. You mentioned earlier with steph. Curry the sports world seems more understanding. If not just altogether accepting yeah. I think we've seen with kevin love the basketball player. We've seen it with So many celebrities. We've seen it with everyday baseball players. Zack grind key played for the dodgers. He was franken discussing. he had had some issues. he got medication or treatment. Or whatever he did and he's been able to go forward and be healthy and and happy and that's the important thing and again. I think the pandemic and this is something that Former tennis player pam shriver brought up to me when i spoke to her as she has three teenagers. Two of them have had mental health issues because of the pandemic because they can't socialize because everything is so different in new and i think it's become a more common and more understandable issue everybody It's not so remote. It's not like somebody is an outlier because they've had mental health issues. We've seen it everywhere. And it's more understandable. I think in people can identify more with their soccer and what she's gone through. What about current players on the tour. I saw no me's instagram account. There was a comment from venus williams suppor venus williams and other tennis legend what about some of our competitors cocoa goth who is an up and coming young american star also offered support others have as well I think serena williams said something to the effect of. I wish she was here so i can give her a big hug. I think the understanding is important. I think that we have to realize people handle stress differently. People are wired differently any crisis that you're in whether it's a delayed playing or a late restaurant meal you know some people handle it well. Some people go ballistic. You have to leave room for people to handle it. However they're wired to do it to come to the realization that maybe they need help to get help. If if that's the case where even talking about mental health and sports You know this past generation is pretty impressive. Dented in the total history of sports. So you mentioned kevin love basketball player sat cranky a baseball player Then i'm thinking in the past like not so distant past but still further like metta world peace the basketball player and then going way. Way back during pearsall yeah. That's exactly what i was gonna say. Jimmy pearsall baseball player from nineteen fifties. Who suffered a nervous breakdown than his struggles were made into a film called fear strikes out so when they talked about those struggles fans looked at them as like you know anomalies really sad cases. They sympathize but they just like oh you know they just broke down but that's obviously not happening now in this generation what has happened. I think there's more empathy. I think there's more room for empathy. And again i think we're seeing it all around us You know even Everyday people people who aren't tennis stars basketball stars have become frustrated had become depressed have become emotionally upset or during this whole pandemic Not having work or being forced to work when you don't want to or when you're not sure it's safe Forced to be to change everything you knew about the way you did your job and the way you live your life. I mean those are huge changes and again some people handled it better than others but just because somebody handled it differently doesn't mean that they should be shamed. Historically of course we see our sports. Heroes as gods gods and goddesses unassailable. They're not human them talking about their own struggles makes them very much human. Do you think this is good for The whole idea of sports heroes and sports worship in general. Absolutely i mean i think The real heroes are the people. The doctors nurses and the hero should be teachers and preschool teachers. And all that the way our society is structured. We make athletes heroes and okay. That's fine but i think it's completely healthy to see that. These people are flawed. They feel doubts. And like you do every day or i or anybody else can feel doubts. I think it's absolutely healthy to to know that they go through this and they can be role models in the sense of seeing naomi osaka. Give a name to what she was feeling to give it. The name depression. I think is going to encourage a lot of other people to take a harder. Look and go. You know what what i feel could be. Depression should get help. What should i do next. I think just to open the conversation and to make people aware that it's more common than you may think some people just hide it better than others To put it out there for athletes to say you know what i've had that two of i've experienced that i think can help.
"osaka" Discussed on The Current
"A young woman of color mixed race and in what is still a very white sport. How does that do you think Shape in some ways how she was treated not just in this incident but over the course of her career over the course of the past couple of days. People have been sort of pulling out questions that were asked. Not only her but serena williams as well and other tennis players who are women of color and some of them. Are you know. Sort of upsetting and shocking. They've asked naomi osaka. Serena lands that just because you're black you know and she identifies as being of japanese and haitian descent It's hard to imagine that her feelings don't stem at least in part from having to move through this white world as a woman of color And the way that she is treated you know we've seen male tennis players behave absolutely abominably and Nothing really comes with. It's certainly not an international conversation like the one we're having right now And and i do think that you there is a segment of the fandom and possibly of The people in the tennis world that really do not like seeing a woman of color. Tell them no and set up boundaries. And so i think that impart is probably what she's going through. As well you mentioned serena. I wanna play you. Something that serena williams said at a press conference. This was from the us open last september sometimes harder than others. Every day. having serena on your back is a massive target for the tour for press for stress. But as billie jean king said Pressures privilege so. I wouldn't want it any other way so i just try to think about how fortunate i am to have been in this position. Honestly to be syrian and it feels weird to say that pressures privileged. What do you think that says about about what we expect. From pro athletes. We expect a lot from pro athletes. And i think that we don't necessarily acknowledge them as fully formed human beings with emotions. I like i said. I think that people feel that. You should be grateful for the position that you're in that that they wish they could do that. Therefore it should be everything to you. It should be the most important thing in your life and again that that money solves all problems which is untrue and You know i. It's just a a strange sort of way. I think that as naomi osaka has gotten as she's gotten The pressure has gotten bigger for her. Maybe than she can handle right now and i don't mean that in a in a negative win but you know she rose to start on very quickly and people talk about her early days in press conferences. In how affable she wasn't how funny she was. That was before she was the highest paid woman athlete in the world. That was before she was the number two ranked woman in the world. Who would run. Forego land grant slaps. She is twenty three years old and dealing with the mental health crisis. And that is something that a lot of people can relate to unfortunately do not relate to it as well as they should..

"Josh. Levin slates national editor. This hang up and listen for the week of may thirty first two thousand and twenty one first two thousand twenty one. The week of may thirty first two thousand twenty one on this week show. We're gonna talk about naomi. Osaka withdrawal from the french open and what that episode reveals about athletes mental health and athletes and the press also discussed the fate of atrocious fan behavior in nba arenas and rebecca shuman will join us to talk about simone. Biles latest feats of gymnastics excellence and whether international sport a crats are out to get her. I'm in washington. Dc and the author of queen host of slow-burn season. Four david duke. Also in dc back in our leading arms after two weeks away stephan fats us author of the books word. Freak and panic. Hello stephan page all. It's gonna be a double dose of sport. Acquatic behavior got the tennis and gymnastics. So i'm josh. That's joel by the way i hadn't been introduced yet. But that's fine. It's stephens getting back jonah. You just getting. you're just getting your ceiling hosting you know. Threw me off. Yeah that's what we're trying to do to the listeners to actual panel. But it's good to know that we've good misdirection. We're all friends here Joel anderson host of the upcoming slower and season six and the host of slow-burn season three anti is on the west coast and a slate staff writer. Just going to throw things in in a random order because a lot of things. Yeah you went with six three normally but again. It's all all in service of keeping people off their feet. So that's i'm with if i Listeners slow-burn season six. I am. I going to be confused. If i haven't listened to slow-burn season season three. It'll probably be really difficult. Because i think if you go to the slow burn feed. There's nothing from slow-burn six yet. But but you never know you have to give it a shot. I'm still trying to catch up on podcast right now. So you just never know. Maybe she should go to the feed. Anyway if you're listening to this and see what's there and listen to it just just to see season five now last wednesday naomi. Osaka said she wouldn't attend postmatch. News conferences at the french. Open writing on instagram. That i'm just not going to subject myself to people that doubt me on sunday. She won her opening match and kept her word. The french open find. Her and tennis officials threatened to kick her out of this and future events and then on monday asaka withdrew from the tournament. She said she had suffered long bouts of depression since winning her first major in two thousand eighteen and would now take some time away from the court. Joel there's a lot to discuss about. The events of the last few days from athlete mental health as josh said in the intro to news conferences at big sports events to the treatment of black and women athletes the way athletes express grievances on the way that sports authorities respond to them. But i want to start here with the observation. That is pretty banal. But i think encapsulates all of this. This whole episode just feels so profoundly sad and also so utterly avoidable. Yes i think you know first and foremost like everybody. I hope that now asakusa okay and on the road to getting better getting healthier and getting the help that she needs at this point. You'd have to say this seems to be much more about her health than media access. Post-match press conferences so clearly tennis can wait for another day. And i should stay right up front. I think people know this if they listen to the show regularly that. I'm not much of a tennis fan. i'm not. I rarely watch it. With the notable exceptions of serena naomi and like a lot of black americans who sort of culturally removed from the country club sports. I've developed a rooting interest in their success. In it's hard that the sound of little paternal. When i say this but she's young and i've always sort of worried about her because she's always seemed a little nervous a little gloomy in the spotlight right like it was a chore for her and so yeah it was just sort of hard to not want to wrap my arms around her after the two thousand eighteen. Us open when she beat serena williams and started to cry. Because i think everybody's sort of wanted to see serena win a major and she denied her soon. It was like a lot of young tennis players. Sooner was her idol of chief. Up a little. Guilty for denying serena in that moment so yeah. I felt like a really close to her. I wanted to. Oh man. I just want to hug little niamey right. I'll say it helps a little bit. That actually looks like one of my friend's daughters but that's neither here nor there. But i think what makes the most sense to me here is that we take naomi osaka at her word. So if answering postgame press conference questions fuels are herself doubt in mental health issues. This she should take whatever measures are appropriate. And i guess though. I don't understand how they morphed into a larger about the utility these press conferences. She said it was a problem. She didn't say that she'd been in conversation with the tennis players about this particular issue. It hasn't been a concern echoed by other major tennis figures at this moment. At least so i think because people don't like the press particularly the sports press particularly the european sports in his previous treatment of black female athletes. That's how this conversation has taken off so it's like is it okay to just say that this is naomi's issue leave it therefore moment so i'm i'm with you. On thinking that naomi osaka hs health and wellbeing is at the forefront and should be made here but the reason that the conversation went the places a dead was because in her original statement explaining that she wasn't doing press osaka did use the first person plural. She talked about athletes. Collectively were often sat here. And ask questions that we've been asked multiple times before or ask questions bring down into our minds. i'm just not going to subject myself to people. The doubt me she also talked about. Press conference is In terms of less about mental health unless about awkward stuff. And more in that initial statement about on-court situations in about how they affected her ability to win matches and so the kind of re response that came was from the press. Saying you're obligated to do this. Stop complaining stop whining. But i thought interestingly from her fellow players talking about not being critical of osaka hang it in less kind of harsh terms. This is an obligation. We do this win or lose. And there's this kind of cliche joel right about what it means to be a sport like you should shake your opponents hand after a match and it was kind of i think discussed in those terms like if you win you should talk about it and be a good sport and you know on a your opponent everything but also if you lose you have the grace to appear in front of the press and answer questions and whether it's being tough for whether it's being honorable or polite or whatever kind of values that these are these are the things that we should expect of whether there are athletes. Are you know things that were taught as we're kids. And so that's kind of how it started off. And in the second statement steph n where. She talked about being depressed since two thousand and eighteen and when she talked about things in a much more kind of person and intense personal way i think the conversation and then shifted and you know i thought there was a there was a really good tweet from a woman named hannah wilkes. He said fun fact about depression and anxiety for this never suffered the times when it's most urgently necessary to ask for help.
"osaka" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"Been talking about the last seven weeks on the podcasts. Many of you have been following along. I've been seeing some of your tweets and some of your guesses on who killed aaron on maravilla town starring kate winslet The finale was sunday night You watched it. I think yesterday. Did you think you know we watched this woman. Kate winslet's Maher mar spit nails for six episodes. I mean she was. Just i just angry. You know not compassionate the series and then in the series finale. She turns into mr rogers. She didn't turn into mr rogers pretty much. She offered a shoulder to cry on anyone who would listen to her who anyone who needed it in the last episode. I thought that was ridiculous. That's the character jump. What was i thought was ridiculous. Well because she was coming to grips with the fact that she had not grieved over her son suicide. I get that. I just seem. I think it would be a more casual to go from zero. the sixty. it wasn't zero to sixty. Well i think it was. I don't know i mean. Even even as she tried to comfort it wasn't even comfort with her sons The mother of her grandson. I mean that wasn't like the the warmest or cuddly est of of of scenes. Even though she understood that she was trying She admitted that she was happy that she was going to be able to keep her grandson. I actually thought there was room for her to be even warmer in that final episode on a. But but anyway what did you. So you didn't like the finale. I'm guessing no wasn't that kotla. I'm not as excited about the series as everybody else seems. I know you know you know. Can we discuss the who done it. You wanna yeah. We'll just spoiler alert right now. We're going gonna talk about the finale of the show if you haven't watched it yet Then you'll want to tune out right now And if you haven't watched the show but you're planning on it because you heard so much about it and it really did get an incredible attention This show did Then you may want to tune out right now as well and with that We will talk about the twist in the final episode and neither one of us. Had you know who had it. Stephen king had it stephen king a couple of hours before the final episode had that ryan all right the twelve eleven or twelve year. Old son of lor and john going to be the murderer. You know he wasn't even on the board as a in terms of being able to bet on him But it was he. For whatever reason stephen king got it. We never even talked about him. I chill because that's because he was such an obscure calendar but he really wasn't he was he was lighting. He was hiding his father's secret and we knew that it was a very young then it seemed to be more than just infidelity. To may the fact that it degenerated into a who done it i think it automatically loses interest in may it reminded me of who shot. Jr their in the big dallas controversy of the eighties. I need more than a. Who done it. I watch eddie any hallmark active christie show to get done and there's more than a who it was a much to know you're to pick one of the most obscure character such easy to do. That's cheap okay. that one. you don't think did you wouldn't even think about doing. It is the one who did it. that's cheap. i love the final finale. I loved it I thought that it was a twist. That wasn't a reach which i was worried about. You know i that was part of look. You know brand stark in the final episode of game of thrones. A lot of people didn't see that coming a of people hated it and it was a bit of a reach in the way they got to. It was rushed and all of that and even though i liked game of thrones the final season. I didn't love the finale. I loved this finale First of all it was much more than a who done it show. I mean it was a it was a very good who done. It was a very good thriller It was really the story of of mare and her journey To you know sort of come to grips with the fact that she had not grieved for her son committed suicide and the relationships that had been impacted along the way And i thought that. I thought it was a beautiful ending in many ways ending the relate. First of all i think. The acting was outstanding I thought kate winslet. I thought the three women. Kate winslet and julianne nicholson and Jean smart were really good in this show. And i thought this scene with lor and mare at the end was was really it was an incredible scene And i thought it was very touching and very moving As far as the twist with ryan it was completely plausible. Not that we thought of it but the way they got to it was plausible It was obviously fit ten minutes into the episode. Tommy you do. Something else was coming. Because it wasn't all wrapped up with john. Trying to kill billy and then mayor finding out that it was john etc. Something else was coming. I we did not know what it would be now. There may have been a major mistake or a major hole In how they got to to ryan although people are telling me. Because i talked about this on radio this morning that i've got to go back and watch that scene but i thought that mr carol who called up at the end and you get to the fact that he had been missing his gun and i thought the implication that he'd been missing his gun and then it was returned with for a significant period of time. When it wasn't it was in the same night so somehow he went out saw that his gun was missing and then went out the following morning and it was back. Ok and wouldn't he in the midst of murder in that small town Wouldn't he have reported that. Somebody took his gun in the middle of the night while some people said he was old and he wasn't sure and he didn't really imply with with direct With direct lines in the show that that the gun had been missing for more just tonight. Anyway i i i. I thought that it was I thought that if it wasn't one of the people we talked about especially when we're talking about richard her boyfriend who you know. What was his purpose anyway. During the show there are a couple of things something he tells her. Oh lehman i signed a contract at the college. I'm going somewhere the mara we knew. What a shock him for lever. That was as it turned out. That was really an unnecessary part of the show. Looks some people said. It was unnecessary that we serial killer in the show actually wasn't provided a couple of thrilling episodes. And you know for a while you were convinced that maybe everything was tied together in that just separated the two events. I still think the whole chaban her daughter and the relationships that she was in especially last week when she was essentially stalking her new girlfriend via via text. I thought that that was a little bit unnecessary There was a moment there during the show where i thought it might be frank's new wife or it might be Or or that my guest from a couple of weeks ago that it was going to be lore was gonna turn out to be right that she was protecting You know the family and that will end and the end. John's being the father of this child I thought it was wrapped up in a way that was completely plausible. I thought it was really well done. And i thought..

"A toronto hasn't won a playoff series. Tommy in hockey since two thousand four. So it's been seventeen years since they even one playoff series At that's got that's got to be tough for people who really care about their team Which they do up there All right So naomi osaka for those. That are not big tennis fans. 'cause i don't think there are a lot of them anymore Not country. it's become very much a niche sport in the united states. It's still very popular Very popular around the world Especially in europe and south. America and australia naomi. Osaka has been a multi time championship winner. She's twenty three years old. she's japanese I mentioned forget if i did this with you or not. that sportico which is now the Forbes business version magazine john or andrew. Good friend Does a great job with sports business journal but sportico did this article last week. Naomi osaka in twenty twenty made fifty million dollars in endorsements she made fifty five point two million dollars when you factor in prize money. It's the most ever in endorsements for female athlete of all time And she was. I think fourth for the year behind lebron tiger and i think a soccer player I forget where she was but She had an incredible year off the court with endorsements anyway. I think we briefly talked about last week She she had a statement before the french open started that she was not going to do the required match. A media press conferences That she was meant to lee stressed by it. She was tired of of having people doubt her and press conferences. I'm she cited. She cited mental Stress and mental health issues but she was also in that original statement fairly critical of the media You know and sort of the repetitive Questions that put negatively into her head The french open disappointed with that decision. They they told her that she would be fined. The maximum amount for not doing media She won her first round match. And then apparently all four majors decided That they would start discussing whether or not. They would abboud her from the tournament if she didn't continue If she didn't live up to her responsibilities which include Doing media and before they took further action. She withdrew from the french. Open yesterday She withdrew and she had a long statement Guess i could read it. You know what. I probably should read it for those. That aren't Following the story she withdrew from the tournament. Yesterday saying quote. Hey everyone this isn't a situation. I ever imagined or intended. When i posted a few days ago. I think now the best thing for the tournament the other players and my well being that i withdraw so that everyone can get back to focusing on the tennis going on in paris. I never wanted to be a distraction. And i accepted that my timing was not ideal and my message could have been clearer. More importantly i would never tripoli trivialize mental health or use the term lightly. The truth is that. I've suffered long bounce long bouts of depression since you. Us open in two thousand eighteen. And i've really had a hard time with that. Anyone that knows me knows i'm introverted. Anyone that has seen me at tournaments notice them often wearing headphones as that helps dull my social anxiety though the tennis press has always been kind to me and i want to apologize especially to all the cool journalists whom i may have hurt. I'm not a natural public speaker speaker. And i get huge waves of anxiety before i speak to the world's media i get really nervous and i find it. Stressful always tried to engage. And give you the best answers. I can so here in paris i was already feeling vulnerable and anxious so i thought it was better to exercise self care and skip the press conferences. I announced it preemptively. Because i feel like the rules are quite outdated in parts and i wanted to highlight that i wrote privately to the tournament apologizing and saying that it would be more than happy to speak with them after the tournament as the slams are intense. I'm gonna take some time away from the court now but when the time is right. I really wanna work with the tour to discuss ways. We can make things better for the players press and fans anyways. Hope you all are you. You are all doing well and staying safe. Love you guys. I'll see you when i see you. Well look if she has if she suffers from depression and is treated for it Then this is very serious stuff. And i wish her all the best but the rest of it is just pure for shit absolutely for shit you now. I mean the way she handled. It was an her people. She needs us handle list. A woman who makes fifty five million dollars in endorsements has people making decisions for her and just have dropped this bomb on the french open without any any discussions before without any contacts. According to new york times. French open officials repeatedly tried to get in touch with her to talk to her about this and she refused refused. Any kind of contact discussion. It so i mean. There are pretty much left with no choice to do what they did. And i mean it's it's it's unfair to the other players. She separately from any of the other players in terms of our refusal. To press our cisco's they all have to do well she. That's not true she. She got a lot of sympathy. Doll said now. You can't do this year. Serena the one that matters in her sport with who who who have the same complaint serena who who was who doesn't like to be held accountable for her public Displays of of foolishness at best. Of course she's gotta bake bake. It's a good idea to not have to questions about the way she plays in what she does only on her terms. So i don't i don't take that one seriously but again you have a player the decide. They're not gonna do press conferences and the rest of the people to do them. That's an advantage or are you done. No i'm not done. There was a great new york. Times story about this. that A quote from billie jean king likes to say crusher is a privilege and repetitive questions are an inconvenience but also a reflection of legitimate. A with interest media coverage much of a favorable has helped asaka because the world's best paid the male athlete now. Okay Three things tommy real quickly before i get to a conversation more about whether or not it's advantageous or not advantageous for players and coaches and teams to have media to have traditional media..
"osaka" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"Don't want it. You don't need it but you're gonna get it anyway. The kevin sheehan show he. Is kevin times here today. I'm here Hope everybody had a great weekend. We both have watched the finale of the show. We've been talking about it for the last seven weeks. Maher town we will get to that we will get to the neaten the naomi osaka story From the french open. But i think we should start with the wizards who stayed alive last night. Beating the seventy sixers one twenty two to one fourteen In a game that to me. It's pretty simple. I mean if embiid plays in the game more than eleven minutes. The wizard season is over. I mean it's really. It isn't more much more than that. This is the easiest recap of a game of all time now. There are other things in the game. That i want to talk about But the bottom line is joel. Embiid got hurt. He's having an mri on his knee. Today eleven minutes. When he was in the game they were up by as many as ten he got two fouls called on gathered. Who started the game two fouls on len who came in foregathered and then he left the game. In the wizards Came back and even they trailed at half time. They took a fourteen point. Third quarter lead in held on for dear life against primarily. Seventy sixers backups. Because ben simmons was in foul trouble for much of the game If you watch the game on saturday night it was an embarrassment. I mean it was one of the worst. You know efforts. I've seen the one thing that i liked about last night. Even with him. Beat in the game. Tommy is that they actually came out and played with the level of urgency like they had interest in winning the game in extending their season but if embiid plays and place his normal minutes. The wizards are over there. Season's over that's the way i saw it. How did you see it. I agree with you. I agree with you totally and you know. Let's face it. Their number eight. See now who who managed to squeeze their way into being the seed and they're playing a number one seed so i don't know how are we could expect a. I mean much more than than what we've seen. This is the way the nba works. I mean the the the top teams the difference between the top teams. And the also ryan's is significant. But you're right i mean. The wizards are taken golf states. If embi played up there. And i know because he didn't play daniel gaffer even look more impressive when he played. But my my. My takeaway was the wizards better. Not screw up gifford and more better not either the development of those guys up because he gaffer. They've really got something they make they got a bargain in gaffer and he's got potentially be a real significant contributor to a good team And with hotter more and i just hope that you know as the organization does they. Don't screw this up. yeah they. I think they For next year And maybe even the following year have like gay team option on his rookie deal That chicago signed him to when they drafted him. I thought i'm not even talking about that. Talk about about how. Well he got it. You know. he's got to stay here for you know a meaningful amount of time So mean. I think effort has been phenomenal I thought hot schumer had his best game as a wizard because playoff game. And i really do like hot summer now so much more than i used to. I'm bought into hot summer. A being a potential future star not guaranteed star. But a player. Who has a chance to be. You know a eight hundred number two legitimate all star on a team something like that and you know if you think about beal westbrook and hotch chamara if he were to emerge quickly as as a star and a third star in the team. What would that mean. well it would mean Not a championship. It would mean forty five to forty eight wins year. Maybe a five seed in may be one series one. That's the upside with this team. No matter what hot shimmer becomes an. I'm more intrigued with what he can become now than. I was say a month or two months ago. the They're just not anywhere near the upper echelons of the eastern conference the stars on the teams in the eastern conference from the three that play in brooklyn in kyrie irving and kevin durant and james harden to even to be honest with you. The two that play in philadelphia. Certainly no one of the three matches embiid. Embiid is a true heavyweight star. The wizards don't have you know like we've talked about a top ten player You know milwaukee has won Held the hawks may have one when all is said and done. The celtics have won Anyway the game last night was interesting because first of all did you watch it. I mean were you watching it on. Tnt up because you're up in the poconos right now. But i watched it. The crowd was great now. I know there were a lot of philly fans in the crowd. I was told that by people who were at the game but the crowd was. You could tell that Through the tv watching it. I was shocked at the noise. That philly fans saturday night was even louder because they played so well but anyway. I thought the urgency was there at the fans were great Even if it was sort of a mixed track there were more wizards fans there than than seventy sixers fans. I don't think there's any doubt about that. But whatever Whatever the percentage breakdown there are a lot of philly fans there I thought hot shimura was awesome. I thought their intensity was awesome. But here's just an observation about this series you know neither westbrook or beal have played a great game yet. Bill is not played. well I you know he had a couple of big shots down the stretch at seven turnovers in the game last night and it could have been ten turnovers Last night westbrook was three for nineteen from the floor. They were combined twelve for forty two and for this series. I think bill is something like five for twenty five on threes. He was three for twenty coming into the game last night. They got lucky. And maybe they'll continue to get lucky in this series. This is a big injury report coming up this afternoon. Bee's tommy it's not nuts to say it isn't that if joel embiid somehow got seriously injured last night in his out for the series that the wizards would have a legitimate chance of winning any game that he doesn't plan now. Are they gonna win three more. Which is what they'd have to do to complete the time. Nba comeback. Nobody's ever come back from three nothing down. I doubt it. I think philly would be able to summon up enough there deeper in their bench To win one of these games but we would go into tomorrow. Night's game as example as an example in philadelphia. If joel embiid is out and the sixers be like a very short favourite. These would be toss up games going into it and the one encouraging thing again is that i don't even think bill has played a great game yet in this series. Now i'm not expecting embiid to be out I'm not expecting embiid. Be completely compromised like healthwise for the rest of the series. But i don't know And if he were to be out for or or not be anywhere near one hundred percent believe it or not. The wizards could win any game against them. Whereas before last night i bet philly last night laying eight and a half. I bought it down to eight. I thought they were going to destroy the wizards last night. I thought saturday night. We saw a team that was basically had quit. They got embarrassed on saturday night. The defense was horrible It looked like they were still more concerned about the popcorn incident and they were winning anything And last night at the beginning of the game. I think it was like eighteen eight early something like that and i thought yeah this is not going to go well and this is going to be another blow. I think they led by ten at one point in the first quarter maybe twelve and then embiid got hurt in the whole game changed around. I mean that's not a coincidence. He's that good that good. By the way. Tommy i had Tony massenburg on the radio. This morning and i've had scott brooks on a bunch and it wiped talked to both of them about embiid in gino. Both of them. How about this scott brooks played with akeem allies one in houston you know in the mid nineties on one of those championship. Teams tony massenburg in one of his seventeen. Nba stops. He played with akeem lajon. And when i brought it up. He said he said this when he goes. I definitely see. If that's where you're going. I definitely see the comparison in embiid's game to allies you on there. A lot of comparisons minus three point shooting..
"osaka" Discussed on The Mini-Break
"With the big story. Naomi osaka electing to withdraw from the twenty twenty one french open and rather than purse. Her words rather than again offer my spin immediately. I just wanna read all of you listeners. In case you aren't on tennis twitter in case you didn't have the chance to read statement announcing her decision. Here's how the statement goes. Hey everyone i. This isn't a situation. I ever imagined attended. When i posted a few days ago. I think now the best thing for the tournament the players and my wellbeing is that i withdraw so that everyone can get back to focus on the focusing on the tennis going on in pairs. I never wanted to be a distraction. And i accept that my timing was not ideal and my message could have been clearer. More importantly i would never trivialize mental health or used the term lightly. The truth is that. I've suffered long bouts of depression since the us open in two thousand eighteen. And i've had a really hard time coping with that. Anyone that knows me knows i'm introverted. And anyone that has seen me at the tournaments will notice that. I'm often wearing headphones. As that help stole my social anxiety though the tennis press has always been kind to me. And i want to apologize especially to all the cool journalists who i may have hurt only eo. Moussaka is a classy enough individual to apologize to people when she's speaking about something so personal that's me editorializing. But again you have to praise her and her class her grace. Everything about naomi osaka reflected in the statement. I am not a natural public speaker and get huge waves of anxiety. Before i speak to the world's media i get really nervous and find it stressful to always try to engage and give you the best answers i can so here in paris i was already feeling vulnerable an anxious so i thought it was better to exercise self care and skip the press conference. I announced it preemptively. Because i do feel like the rules are quite outdated in parts and i wanted to highlight that i wrote privately to the tournament apologizing and saying that i would be more than happy to speak with them after the tournament as the slams are after the tournament as the slams are intense. I'm going to take some time away from the court now but when the time is right..
