We're doing I wanna try doing this thing where it's very conversational. And we just go we just go. I was trying to do that yesterday led to some clunky moments. So yeah, no music music. And honestly, it's sensory overload in the studio already, and why are the Strobe lights going on what's? So you're going to the radio audience is probably gonna. Pick up on the left glasses. And I'm the only one in here doing just male first Johns through guts Weiner. Yeah. I'm john. He has somebody left a hat in here. And there's just Strobe lights going on. And I'm watching ESPN two or something isn't is going. Crazy right now. All right. So we doing you the radio audience is probably going to be hearing some screaming and Spanish, those are engineers. I don't know what happened. But this morning all of a sudden our studio lights just started Straubing. Okay. I and apparently, I'm not the only one that doesn't know what happened real low budget operation around. Everyone is panicking at eleven to fix it. The lights are blinking Strobe light yet. This can't go on really because we're going to go crazy. This is how they torture people in Guantanamo Bay. Oh, man. I was just gonna tell Jason you're complaining about the, hats and stuff. There are people that work in that studio where okay. All right. So it's not like I'm at goodwill, and there's just some stuff. But to be honest and can do a better job picking up his bleep, honestly as a computer here. Honestly like Billy's here today and tastic. All right. How you guys doing guys good? I mean, whatever I got a bone to pick with Billy. I got some issues with what's going on here doing this week Jason because they're on a by what the hell are you doing here? We're going to talk to you. Oh, the dolphin. Yeah. Yeah. Billy. I'm here to preview time. I thought we were I thought we agreed. I was gonna come back only when he was in like Philadelphia holiday special. There's not like somebody doesn't have like thanksgiving decorations at you can go live from. Full disclosure. There was an awkward moment last week where I take Jason as opposed to come in last week. And I had a doctor's appointment which took me out of play for the local hour. He was supposed to be in. So I had to retire at home and say, hey, I'm not going to be there. I think I think everyone knows that. There's just obvious tension between billion Jason Billy freeze out the involved parties. So that's why Jason wasn't here on an actual game week. And he's here on a BI week. Should we try to mediate this, Mike? I don't feel like this is going to be a healthy dynamic. That's you know, what forget it. No. I don't wanna mediate. Look you guys got to pick. It's me or him. You guys. Keep them to talk to my engineers, my background though. It's mere Billy. You're putting us in a tough spot here. Jason. So we're going to do a poll or? You have ROY picked me. I thought he was addressing me. I didn't realize I vote. All right. So we got one for me. Sweating back there, Billy. I'm sweating cannot it on here. It was like a Spartan race trying to get here at seven AM running through Miami Beach to get here on time. Is there was this Ganic accident on the palmetto when you're you're running when you're trying to run like ten blocks here even in the morning, you're running through all kinds of obstacles, you hurdling chairs people out. Somebody was just I don't know. Why is this? How you guys washed the sidewalks down here on Miami Beach, guys just spraying soapy water all over the sidewalk that is the thing here. I I almost like my almost bloom ICL running on that. And not just once a week. They do it every day, and they just they just like. Just flush out all the booze vomit out of the sidewalks with soapy water. That's how they do it. You would have had that weird Yuqing grant injuries. He okay. Because then look like he was out for the that looks like an achilles. So hardy had an achilles problem before that. So of course, that's right. Where your mind when the lights stop link? Yeah, they weren't you guys got it. All right. We fix it guys. Thank you close the door now. So we don't have to talk during the show. Okay. Thank you for your help. Still the only one in the studio, and I don't really we're all here though. Don't pretend pretend there's no all all of us are crammed into the studio right now shipping container thumping with you on a Thursday. I think so as you came grand. Okay. I don't know probably. But I find a really that worried about it. Well, look, bad and look bad. And then I read that he didn't need surgery. So I'm like trying to figure out why stopped running the route. Quite honestly, it does make me think of the bigger point for this season. People are talking about this team. Like, it's a real disappointment this team got injured. Yeah. Right. Like, that's really the biggest stories. We're talking about tannahill. Like, he's not that good. But his offense align got hurt. Then he got hurt. Then the receiver's got hurt. Like, it's pretty simple. Well with Tanna hill he got hurt while the offense of lying got bad. Then he got hurt. Then he's kept playing. He was bad when he kept playing and no one realized that he was hurt. And now that he's hurt people are still not using that as an excuse for his bad play. Right. Jason. Sure. This is the team that everybody is this thing. Are you guys getting getting punked, they're testing your radio accurate, and they're trying to in the middle of the sentence. Start flashing lights if you can stay focused and not doing well to do this with Strobe lights like the goal is. I guess just not to get totally distracted. It's a standing Gundy. Thursday. Also, that's what you do for him. He likes coming down. Stan Van Gundy. Thursday talking basketball before that though Jason leisure talking football, title, shorts Palm Beach sports, not a thing at all in any real way, Palm Beach sports thing page of you for showing some respect my own beach post. Can we talk about I what I was gonna say before Billy before nine AM has had a son kiss, which is okay. Maybe that's just his sugar to get his day going, but after the sun kiss he's now on coffee, and it's before nine am after nine hundred. Well, it wasn't when I when I wanted to say that it's not. Two. I wanted to say that like fifty seven it'd be funny or if it was a sunny delight drink that two billion. No, I have a banana though, I mean, why is that weird? I don't understand. I don't think I don't like coffee, and if I needed a little boost in the morning, I why not soda and he also has another Starbucks Coffee for after I'm all for that. Maybe billion I have more common than I realized happened. There is some common ground. Let's not even exploited might be. I have an ice coffee. But I I mean, I might leave it in the fridge, by the way, I have a question about the fridge now that we're on. And this is something no one's gonna care about outside of the. Yeah. It doesn't matter. We share a fridge everybody in the studio. I saw a fridge delivered here that I thought the TV had their own fridge. But they put all of their stuff in our fridge. Do they have another flare? Then. Are there food in our fridge, and then none of my food ever fits their? They had minds me of of like every locker room you go in where the best players the star players like Dwayne Wade type and Dominic and sue type they haven't to lockers yet have one. So Dan has two fridges. Well, no, not even this isn't even a dancing. So Dan has a fridge there which you can see to you're right underneath the fake jersey. There's a fridge in. Oh, yeah. There's a fridge or then we have like a communal shared production red bull free, which is tiny. And then the TV production staff has a big fridge. But they put all their food in our fridge. And then there's no room for our food ever is that in dance contract that he has three fridges. I don't know. I mean, I'm more outraged at they have a fridge they load up our fridge with water and their food, and there's never any room for food in that free the waters communal, but I didn't know about their own fridge. And that's kinda mess up that they're so putting food we have a little tiny red bullets. What's in their fridge? It it seems pretty big and the the looks on their face when I exposed them. What he was pretty telling they were there is started moving around the room. I'm like you guys have your own fridge. I feel Reuss us BRUCE'S to blame for this feeling Bruce. Let out a nervous laugh. Do you? Do you remember? So when they moved HQ from the kitchen set to this set, the kitchen said had like this iconic old looking fridge, right? They moved that over here. Yeah. It was like conic and for a long time that fridge was just sitting in the hallway by the stairwell, but it was plugged in. So I was using it and I had like back problem. So I had like ice packs and all this stuff in there. I was using that fridge and then one day the fridge disappeared after like six months of it just leaving it there. And I'm pretty sure that Cleveland or just got sick of that fridge being there, and they threw it away that could be all my stuff disappeared. But you have in there. I had a couple of those like nice, I gel ice packs. I think I had a water bottle in there. I was using it was plugged in. Why not use it? I agree. I would've taken that over there. Injured or a back thing. I said, they weren't you paying attention. No. Well, I kind of my is believed over from all the flashing lights and there's still going on. Yeah. This is a whole we are to do. I'm not kidding you. I'm doing a show right now with Strobe lights on these the lights are failing. I thought this was a gag. But I'm seeing now that it's not that you guys really can't we unplugged don't have working light in the dark would be better. Let's s Dan what we should do, Dan. What do you think do you? He's just shaking his head. No. He's not ready to talk yet. He's already lake Snell one AOL Cy Young. Who is that? Yeah. I just found out who he wasn't. We had a guest avail Bluejays. And no never heard that name before. That's fun. You're a baseball fan. The best pitcher invest of me best part of me going into that television studio and demanding answers as to whether or not they have a fridge was almost knocking chino the guy that was working on the lights off of ladder. There wasn't a sign. That's what can we get one of them to talk about this get Bruce? What are they doing? Fix this. But obviously it's been going on for ten minutes. Do you have pets? Do I have pets have a dog? Meaning you have a dog what kind of dog, do you can I really sure it's rest mog or something. Yeah. It's more. My wife's the what color is your dog white. No mine's black. Okay. There it fizzles. Again. I heard that. But I heard another thing that we might be able to bond over I heard like a week ago on the show there was there was a controversy over some rice crispy treats in the studio that someone still on we've had secret food that you still yet. No, I didn't steal. I don't know that someone else on ROY probably hard to focus right now. I did not do that ROY. Janecky? On this fridge. What's going on Janecky? Hi, how are you? Jason came in really mad that you have a fridge that no one knew about. You guys don't have a space for Fritsch. No. I know. But Jason's mad because Jason comes in here. Like once a week, and he brings food and there's always food in the fridge and Jason's like, wait a minute. I saw TV fridge. And I'm like chasing come down to relax, and he's all in huff. That's all accurate. I'm huffing. Well, we can we can we have a lot of spacing ours. Ours. Thank you so much facing. There's actually been a bigger one this time so few months ago, San just keeps getting keeps moving up and keeps getting bigger fridges while that's the life. Yes. You guys have had your own fridge. This entire time. People are still putting food in the small fridge. Jason's. Jason's failed. Will I had an idea with yours? Not I'm sorry. Mike, Mike, I can only tolerate this so long. I'm sorry. Your name is what Janecky Jaehnke. Okay. Do you not know who I am looking at me? You're looking at me like you don't understand is right for the Palm Beach post. Thank you, very much ignore him Janet's in West Palm Beach, Florida ever heard of it. Happy to have you here. So you should be. I don't think this is working on the way you think it is Jason after that. I don't know if I'll say the space for you. Finally, I'm not getting a vibe that she's impressed. Oh, do you know about the line for doing this age delights? They are on that. So yeah, this is actually this is set. This is like is this what you guys do with the lights when gronk comes in. I know it's too early time. Sorry that this is happening to janiking. I'm the one you should be apologizing to my goodness Jesus. Okay. All right. Yes. Sorry about that channel disoriented with all the Strobe lights in the female and the fame. Mike. Could you relate how difficult that is to actually do? Thank you Janecky. We brought in like the nicest person that works here. Oh, billy. I I do I have secret stash of food to. Yeah. Well, I live with three other people. I secret stash ice cream is the main one how do you hide ice cream? It's fantastic. I leave it in the bag from Publix and hide it in the back of the fridge. My kids don't know that we have ice cream in the house until they see the empty in the trash. Wow. Are you impressed? So you're depriving your children affiliate. Come on, man. I'm trying. Got a secret stash of Rice Krispies? I got secret stashes ice cream. We both like exotic fish do. What do you not are the Marlins and exotic fish? Quorum new uniform day today. I don't know. Shaming coladas. Do you like that Mike do you like the new colors there? All right. I I hated the old colors. So this is an upgrade. I think do you like them. Jason. I do I like it better than the maroon five logo. But I didn't I didn't mind Bill colors. I thought they were okay. What's your favorite color? Blue blue. I just like this game. Maybe grayish Brown. Explore jason. Ooh, Jason Phillies. What's your favorite celebrity couple? Oh, wow. Yeah. What's your favorite celebrity couple? Or I don't know. My wife does the grocery shopping. So I don't usually see all the magazines at the checkout. So I don't even know which ones they are which one is Ben Affleck. Now, he's still been athlete. He's working through stuff right now. We don't even know. I think he's with a playboy playmate that keeps urging him to go back into rehab real. Yeah. Okay. A playboy model so. What actors I like who's Daniel Day-Lewis Mary to that's not how this works. You just pick a celebrity and whoever they're married to its liberty couple it it's got to be too celebrities that are together say one in my headset for me to repeat. Hang on people. Yeah. I'll do it right now. John legend and Christie Teagan Chrissy, Chrissy Teigen, Chrissy Teigen. It's actually pronounced tiger. But everyone pronounces Teagan shabby saying tiger. No, no, Don Tuygan. No. That's not is this segment ever going to end. I think smoking always affected my daily life because I was a closet smoker. It really sort of controlled my entire day. My boss is the one that recommended jewel. So I decided to give it a try. You don't get any of the odor of smoking. There's no ash all over your car. I would say give it a try get the flavor and satisfaction of smoking without the mess of cigarette. Asher lingering odor. Switch to Joel check O J U, L dot com slash sports. If you don't smoke don't start warning. This product contains nicotine nicotine is an addictive chemical donlevatar been watching the show about swords where they make swords out of like junk yard material on the history channel. I'm hoping there's some new episodes of that I could see on demand. That would be nice forced in fire. It's called still guts, they give you like a random thing, and you have three hours, and you need to forge them piece of metal. Whether it's like a spring from a truck just a random piece of tractor. I need to get that into like part of a blade that they give you. So then after that the eliminate the person that hasn't done that the best is four people when you start and then the next Brown you need to give it a handle. And then the eliminate someone from there, and then after five days, you have three tests, and they come back, and it's more like strength tests and stuff, and then they choose the fortune five champion ten thousand dollars. This is our show with the stugatz on the ticket Strobe light update. The lights have stopped Strobe ING. They have totally stopped. I think we've fixed this situation. Now, we just need to get the same Van Gundy plane off the ground, which might prove to be a little bit tricky because we have less time to do that. Because we found out for Stephen a camera hit that was cutting into our prep time and even got caught in traffic didn't make the camera hit. So all these plates are spinning we're trying to get this good show off the ground. But my mind is veering because I got so upset at the Miami Heat last night. Even in victory was I the only one that did this. Yes, I was the only one that got mad at them for easily handling. The injured Brooklyn nets, dude, we lost to the wizards at home. We'll take any victory. We can get let me let me play for you. What triggered me? I saw this on Brennan Tobin social media feed. And I'm triggered play. This Tyler Johnson sound from last night after the game without getting like, you know, to pumped up ahead like we most of us got paid. Most of us got got good contracts to able to come back here. So what are we complaining about? You know, I think it was crazy before before any live got any money. We just some dogs, you know. And I think that's what the the beautiful thing is we had to just come together. And why it's so special to be with a group for so long is that we can really check each other. You know, we have we had real hard to hard conversation with one another. And I think today we went out and really just played for each other. Okay. Sounds great. Why are you upset on Jason leisure? The Palm Beach post is in studio with us because it's an admission of what we all thought we gave them their contracts, and they all got us satisfied with those. Contracts. They they were secure and they south being dog. Listen, they were dogs when they were unpaid. Yeah. And they got paid. And they were like we're not dogs anymore. We're not dogs. Let's become dogs. Again, we paid for the dogs. Did that not happen to you? When you got your title Johnson type, no raise. No, no. I double down working harder. Okay. All right. I'm a dog Silla Dillard still a dog dog. I'm not losing at home to the wizards. Okay. I'm so mad at that. I'm so mad at that that they all just have the self awareness about a year and a half too late that hey, guys, we should probably start playing up to our contracts because we were better before we got these contracts. Thanks, guys contracts. That are disaster. Did you see what they were chanting Tyler Johnson at the free throw line? Of course, you weren't watching nets eat. Why would you they were chanting? The nets fans because the reason why we have this albatross of a contract. Even though Tyler Johnson played well shut up bumpy. Twenty four points very efficient game at the free throw line. They were chaining offer sheet. You know, why? Because the Brooklyn nets are why we had to pay Tyler Johnson that much money because they signed him to that ridiculous offer sheet with the poison pill, and the trade escalator, and then we matched it. Hey nets fan. Why don't you relax yourself? TJ would be one of the best players on your team is it right now. But trust a good thing in golf. I don't know. Why just call them TJ? Why are we talking about golf you said an albatross of a contract? Yeah. It's a good thing in gonna talk about golf bird. But no, it's like an albatross around your neck. It's something that weighs you down. And was he always like this? Or was this did this happen? I know he's gone, and it's actually gotten worse. Okay. Get any money, man. Let's be real. Which one of which one of your crew here. Mike did start kind of losing their edge. Once the show really took off. I don't want to go down that path. I do. I don't want to go down that path. But let's preview the next game which is not this week. So it was Chris. What what's going on here with Brock Osweiler and his two and a half second delivery. I mean, just like it takes them two and a half seconds from when he brings the ball behind his head to release it actually think he's been fine. Because what do you expect out of Brock Osweiler? I mean, he's she's sitting around in free agency for two weeks this spring for a reason, you know, he's been he's been fine. Adequate backup quarterback. It's a general curiosity that I have is why takes him so long who had the theory of Billy. Did you have the theory that Brock Osweiler simply too tall? Yeah. I think Brock was tall. And that's why overthrows people at six foot eight he certainly looked to tall when he was trying to chase around that snap and Green Bay that. That was one of the most unethical plays. I've seen by a quarterback. You see the dolphins worked out who Paxton Lynch tall to? He's not as always one when in shorter. When are they going to bring in Johnny Manziel win is Adam gates going to say, you know, what nobody under doors until I'm the guy that understands Johnny Manziel. All I can fix. Johnny Manziel is way too short medium person. What's more doing? Can we get Matt Moore's he con man more just had to work. I'm thinking, he's on the beach. I don't think he is on a team anywhere wasn't going to work out for like the forty Niners. I think he's got a few met more had such a great NFL NFL career that is the life. I don't think it's done. You don't think you think he's gotta come back. Thirty three got beat up bad last season. He was really hurt list was. Yeah, he was suffering out. Bad foot injury. One of my favorite things last year was watching the way geese interacted with Jay Cutler, and Matt more because Jay colors boy. I mean, he will defend J color. They both the first day colors their color walks out on the practice field with his hat backwards and sodas case like like, they're in the same fraternity or something. And but Matt Morris of not what gays likes about colors Cutler does what he says Matt Moore's a little more of a renegade. And I remember this night in Baltimore where they lost like forty to nothing in Matt Moore. There's a like a real deep interception. And he walks off the field and him engaged. Just don't even look at each other case won't even like look his way when he's walking to the Ceylon MS dynamic. I miss a lot of the funding. Well, you just had me thinking about Jay color. That was the thing that we get him back. Honestly, Jay Cutler was better last year than Brock Osweiler is this year. I think really, yeah. I is that just an expectation thing because Brock is surpassed all expectations through where people. I think expected more from Jay Cutler, I guess they expected the color that was an Adam gates offense in Chicago. And they didn't get that. Are you buying that? Ryan tannehill is going to be back next week that he's gonna play any set. What they're saying. Let's game. That's the goal. I'm selling that. You're not buying up buying selling. Nobody here believes that ROY ROY this'll be a great time for Jason ROY investigative duo, it would and it's not happening. Why? Ten. Okay. So investigation solve. Well. What are you hearing about the injury-time now? Roy did it. Yes, clue if you don't know who who's gonna know Ryan tannehill has had this injury for six weeks or seven weeks. Now, it's a shoulder injury. It's a shoulder injury in his throwing shoulder every single throw. He throws hurts, and he expects it will probably be that way the rest of the season. So that's not a good starting point the rest of the season because he's going to have surgery at the end of the season or he'll on its own us. He says, no surgery. He says it's gonna heal with rest. But it hasn't the other thing too is like none of them can tell you that it has gotten. Definitively better during the time that he's been wrestling. Holo? Didn't Ryan tannehill hurt his knee and think it was going to get better with time and rest and didn't have the surgery and then five seconds into training camp. He tore his ACL. That is correct. It's so why would he of learned? Different body part. He he's it's. He's more. He'd been told that that he said, doc, multiple doctors have told them this isn't an injury that's going to require surgery where their doctors telling him that he needed surgery before he tore his ACL got both opinions when he hurt his knee. Yeah. And he he made the decision to try to rehab it. Instead of get the surgery. But the fact that it hasn't gotten any better that they can't tell you for sure it's gotten better hasn't gotten significantly better. In the last two months. That's scary to me. And you ask Ryan tannehill hate. Well, does it feel better has it gotten better? And he his answer was well, it has to write. How is this team? Still in the mix. That's what I'm saying. That's why I think Adam jas deserves credit. Yeah. How is this even possible? I know dolphin fans every time, Greg I know the pulse of the dolphin fan. Because Greg Cody puts out polls all. How would you gauge are you satisfied somewhat satisfied dissatisfied or very dissatisfied? So the worst, and it's always, very dissatisfied. Always doesn't matter even off of wind even when they were three now, very dissatisfied people are very dissatisfied with this, and this would appear to be an amazing coaching job. I think that this is a team that almost everyone including me thought it was going to be one of the worst in the NFL this year coming into the season ESPN, I think had him ranked thirty two out of thirty two coming into the year. And then after that everybody got hurt and they're still here like one game out of the playoff field. And as crazy as it sounds that the rest of their schedules. Not that bad. I mean going into Indianapolis has not a crazy game for their playing. Well, they they're still under five hundred three out of the last four games are really take play the bills twice it play the Jaguars down here. I don't know if that's going to be that's true. That games thought the Minnesota game is as tough as you thought though at the beginning of the year, right? Minnesota has. Game and the Minnesota Minnesota. Okay. That's a loss. Yeah. It's a loss. That's a loss. But I mean, there's a path here to nine and seven which that's remarkable in the right year. Gets you often scheduled talk. We're just we're going down the list and doing ws ELS. I'm glad you finally had something to contribute. Dan. You've been sitting here. The whole time shaking your head at us. Billy. We we haven't done Chris update. I know it's open. We're ready. If you guys, okay. Yeah. I d- what was it last son? The last time we did the last time the Chris Cody did this was on October first. So it's been sometimes criticized on the scheduled much ended up. So we don't want leisure the the guy who come out you can do to better at those better. All right. So let's expert. Yeah. He went to training training camp. Yeah. He went there multiple times like the guys around. All right. Did they there's watches the all twenty two film went there somewhere between two and thirty eight times on second. It isn't that rain. Yep. Figuring this out somewhere never been updated in a little bit. Can we talk about something else while Billy just mumbled? What do you guys think of holiday car commercials? Okay. They start to early. That's why when I see those. It's holiday time makes me happy early. The Lexus commercial or the Dubose on the car, and they run out and the piano. Like, yeah. You'll remember it's not remembers harbor fifteenth. Those always though, it's always like a Lexus or a Lincoln or something like really nice expensive car. I can't relate to that. Like, if I do that for my wife, she's gonna come out on the driveway. And there's going to be a bow on like two thousand three Honda Civic. That's not bad. That's not in bad condition, some miles on it. I I don't like seeing commercials with no one them before I've been moved to leave the house and put a jacket on because it was a little cooler. They should never play those commercials. You know, I think that should be the line in the sand that should be the marker like okay mic had to put on a jacket today. Now, we can start the commercials to make money. I would love to do a realistic one of those where I buy my wife, like Alexis SUV that we cannot afford with a giant bowl on it. And we it probably can't even afford the bow. And she comes out, and she sees it, and she's just like livid like what? Have you done financial situation with this responsible? Purchase part of the commercials, you taking out a second mortgage, and it would be it would be a commercial for like a financial company like financial advis. You not do that you arguing that. You return the previous lease. Well, over the mileage trying to haggle us make it for the common, man. And then they negotiate the bow the bows actually costs you three thousand dollars. Yeah. Yeah. Well, and the Bose used to it's also. It's one of those Lexus commercials. Do you have a schedule? You guys ready for the schedule breakdown since we did this last Chris was wrong about the lions and the Texans. But he was right about the jets and the Packers.

This is Dr show with stugatz on the ticket, as you know, we are not the most mature outfit at ESPN Jason leisure in with us from the Palm Beach post, but we have some serious office dispute going on here, and you heard about it earlier in the show, and then guys were talking about the fridge controversy who are we mad at because evidently, the shipping container doesn't have a fridge. How you just recapping for the audience yet? I know those were here for Boll turnover every fifteen minutes in radio you like to reintroducing. But right. That's why I know the reason I know the topic. So well is because of how closely I was listening to you guys in the first segment right sitting across from me. So who is who's mad at whom? Well, here's a quick recap for all of those who weren't listening, which of course, is a new Dan, you were listening. This is what's going on? There is a little tiny red bull fridge. That's the communal fridge in our quote, unquote, green room that ever had fridge there. I said it. Yeah. I mean, everybody's seen a red bull fridge. They're not big. They're you know, made to house read it on the poll is the red bull fridge. Then I'm with I'm with Gregg on. I'm with Chris on then forgive me, guys. I'm on so much medication. I'm doing this show. This is the first show I've done, I'm not sober. I am hopped up on all sorts of medication. I don't know how it's legal that anyone allows me near a microphone right now. Wasn't as bad as Greg Cody. So back to the fridge situation. We have this little tiny fridge, and it's kind of a communal fridges filled with lots of water, which takes up the majority of the fridge, and then everybody has to kind of like ram their food in there and TV has accrued like you don't see them, but TV has a crew of like eight or nine people, and they'll ran their luncheon their ram in it. So when you know, we have food that we wanna put in there. There's not much space, and then it dawned on us, wait a minute be got a fridge a couple months ago. And then we investigated and found out they have a giant fridge in their TV like control room that they're just not using. They're using our little baby. Red bull fridge to put all their stuff in. And then they have this luxurious fridge over there. That's empty. I blame Bruce. Like, right. We can say it. It's Br BRUCE'S behind all this it's right behind where he sits the fridge. I'm onto you has anyone has anyone been confronted energy. He came on Jason Lee called on the carpet. Made so uncomfortable that you need less weird. I was advocating for you guys. Billy, you were attacking your size the nicest one here, I retired. You don't want you as an ally of Rome. You've hit him with tea brew love. It wasn't like an affectionate, bro. You'd love to know. Probably what Billy keeps in the fridge. Wouldn't you? I find Billy to be one of the strangest eaters I've ever seen in my life from baby food. We talked about that too while you're here, Dan, we talked about what I had for breakfast today, which was a sun kissed then some coffee and some crooked does a sun kiss. Like you're talking like orange pop. Yeah. Okay. Other sunkissed? Would it be? Yeah. I'm from the midwest. I couldn't I couldn't picture. I was trying to figure if that was juicer pop. I wasn't sure. Now. It's pop. Okay. Stop calling it. Then I will not I'm going to argue. Hey. Hey that in the history of food combinations. No one has ever had breakfast. No one has ever had. Three things together as a breakfast. What cook does three of food croquettes is not a breakfast food. Wait. Oh, wow. Tailgate? You sound yourself Cuban card right now for real this aren't a breakfast or they if they're not a breakfast. What are they they are delightful appetizer? Oh, my can't be double is just like bacon can double as an appetizer. The restaurants that have that on the rich. Breakfast or an appetizer. And put on the poll has anyone in the history of food had for breakfast, coffee, a sun kissed and locate us put on the poll does Dan think of most things as appetizers. Just go to Twitter and put it up yourself, dude. You just have to type in the words. That's it's very simple. I don't have Billy privileges. I guess not really just took away the Billy privileges by telling you to put your own poll up. He simply rejected your ability to put a poll up. I didn't understand do you think that this public? Shaming is going to change the way that I am or eat because it's not going to keep eating, of course, has her money. Manage money respect it. The bananas on the side got into that yet. He will be coming. You will be getting to it are you generally healthy? I haven't died yet. He's not that's a plus. I mean, are you eating healthy there like a system? Here heats Burger King a lot eight three times a day breakfast lunch. And but it's random sometimes it's incredibly healthy thing from a ten of squeeze rarely is extremely healthy. No, even that. I mean, even the yogurt that I'm eating is probably really high in sugar, and it probably has like the paw patrol on it or something. Didn't they see you eating one of those things the other day like the baby food squeezed things of kale? Apple and butter. Squash. Kale kills never going to touch these lips get outta here. He'll I eat a kale and grilled chicken salad every single day for lunch every day. It's boring wash it down with a pop went into ice tea. I don't drink pup, hops. Not really good for you. Stop calling it. Then. You eat this your diet. Sounds just I try to eat white cereal and milk every morning child. We can't regret tried to eat adults here. I tried by cash cashier and stuff like that who cash e-. What is that Kashi? That's wrong. Cashews? You had cost shoes. That's hashing. Kashi cashews Kashi. I don't know what costs you. That's all just user nuts. Dan. Because you go on these health kicks shoes. They're not cashews. No cuts and milk. I eat a grilled chicken and kale salad for lunch. Every day pretty much every day pretty much, and then and then whatever I want for dinner. I feel like if I do a good job on breakfast lunch. I can have it ever. I want Kashi is gluten free. What do you want for dinner like like a meat and vegetable and starch like classic like steak asparagus. And they paid or something. I didn't think you guys could do worse than dolphins. Schedule talk. Arrived at the breakfast of Jason leisure talk the eating habits of Jason leisure tall. I don't view this as worse. I think Janecky would have been riveted by this. To learn something Janik is going to have restraining order on you later today. Are you guys going to are you guys going to figure out this fridge situation? What needs to happen? So that the fridge citrates. So that we can have the sad red bull. Fred, well, a public shaming is a first step and first step. I think was success outside of Jason making. And it's super awkward. I was trying to help so bad. I was sitting and I think the second step is continued public shaming and think we got our point across. Except I don't know because there's also a big fridge behind Dan over there. Does. It's not owned by. Yes, PIN. I mean, I come in here. And it's like you guys the lights don't work, and you don't have enough refrigerators. What's happening? Yeah. Dan, you remember when the Strobe lights we're gonna? I don't know how it gave them. That's why he's sitting there was this Bill. How are pushed through all of that? In the first segment. I didn't very poorly poorly would be the answer. When you send in this requests for them to send down another fridges. There's someone of the SPN it gets that across it like an accountant don't fridge for the Levin. I don't think we need another now where did with fridges we have plenty of fridges. But to answer your question, he could just say fridge now, and like another just show up and let you know what happened to the HQ fridge, Dan because we were talking about that it just kind of disappeared. It was in the hallway for a while. And then it was in the hallway anymore. Did the fridge that used from the kitchen the? Where I did with my dad. I don't know where that is Chris I love this idea of Dan just says like this ruler on high can just order. But also as like this guru, who's like, you know, I could get it for you. But you know, give a man a fridge. He has a fridge for a day. Teach a man to get a fridge. He has fridge the rest of his life. Speaking of that, Dan, actually bought a house for that fridge to be at like nothing else. Does have a house full of fridges that surprises. No one, right? No, I flew how many fridges do you have in your just go straight from meat locker to meat locker just opening things up and eating ice cream. I live. I live on a slab of concrete. And it's just fantastic. I get up and just opening. I wanna be rich. How're meat lockers sanitary? Right. Do you ever stepped into one of those just way too much open space? Really when you think about it even fridges I feel like they're a cesspool for bacteria. Why would why were you in a meat locker? Oh, you don't remember? How exciting it is. When you're a little kid, and you go to Cosco, you try all the free samples and you step into the meat locker to get your meat. Well, I don't think they want anymore. Now. It's vegetable. That's where they keep the vegetables. I think they have the meat somewhere else. But really there is like an extra cold room where they keep a lot of the produce. Yeah. And that is brutal in south Florida because you're walking around outside in shorts and a shirt, and it's ninety degrees all the time. And then you step into there. And you're just it's like a scramble. It's like how much asparagus and apples. Can I get and get out of here? One of the simple pleasures exciting. Honestly as a thirty four year old man who's married kids. You're one of the few thrills heard enthusiasm out of this voice on anything for you. Honestly, it's the little things, man. It's the little things that just really and like, I get adrenaline going. Like, can I get all the produce? I need out of here before my body. Can't take the cold anymore. You can make a show about it. You like grocery shopping. Yeah. Like bargain shopping. What does that mean logo like going for like good discounts? I started going to this place. All the you should look it up. All these the best. They don't give you bags because you have to pay for the bags, and if you wanna use a cart you have to put a quarter in the court. And then when you're done you put the cart back and you get the quarterback. I didn't wanna misrepresent my financial situation. I do make too much money shop at all. You know, all these the best get outta here. It's awesome. And here's the thing. Here's another tip about all the sometimes people don't feel like walking their courts back. So you can go through the parking lot get the court all the court you want as long as you're willing to put in the work. I mean, don't you the bag tax is an effective thing. They do this in Illinois that do they did this in Louisiana. Yeah. Where all of a sudden yet bogus. I don't wanna pay the ten cents for the extra bags craning everything into a bag. It's far more environmentally. I have a bone to pick with all due because I bought a bag yesterday that was advertised at seven cents, and then I check my receive, and they charge me ten joke. Yeah. All the get an attorney. Kashi? You've never tried Kashi. I don't know what it is. I don't know what to say. They make cereal and granola bars and things like that. I think I mean it is nutty. It's a what is it granola base? I keep eating cereal and milk. Even though I'm an adult, but I I'm not gonna sit there and eat like crunch, berries or lucky charms or something. Even though it's stuff that I like, I like cinnamon toast crunch. Yeah. But I can't in good conscience. Start a day as an adult with that. I can what's your favorite marshmallow when it comes to lucky. Charms the green ones, I think it's a hat, right? I'm a red balloon man, myself changing. They added like a unicorn one always exciting, another simple pleasure in life. One time. My dad had poker night at his house in one of his like friends who's kinda gross came over. And he ate all the marshmallows out of our lucky charms. And we found out the next morning. That's disgusting. I'm sorry. Sad too. Our friend who was kind of gross. Yeah. He's probably like smoking cigars, and you know, digging his hands around in our cereals nasty. Jason we appreciate you hanging out with us. Thank you. You're welcome. Do we though not so much? I think smoking always affected my daily life because I was a closet smoker. It really sort of controlled my entire day. My boss is the one that recommended jewel. So I decided to give it a try.

House Oversight preps subpoena for Trump financial documents

"This episode is brought to you by GS k. Each year. There are thousands of deaths from vaccine preventable. Diseases in the US. A GS K we develop and manufacture vaccines to help protect people against diseases like flu meningitis and shingles. And by exploring innovative technologies, we're working to develop new vaccines against diseases previously beyond our reach because the more diseases. We prevent the more lives. We can save the way chill matters show. Weeknights at nine stern on MSNBC. Happy Friday you made it. Today. A federal judge handed down the most lenient sentence yet against any of the defendants charged in the molar investigation or in any of the prosecution's that have derived from the Muller investigation is Dame was Sam patent Sam patent pled guilty last year to lying to investigators in a plea agreement in which he admitted or ranging an illegal fifty thousand dollar foreign donation into the Trump inaugural. He also admitted lobbying as a foreign agent without registering. He also admitted lying to Senate investigators about that. And other matters sim patent pled guilty last year. Prosecutors have since said he started cooperating with prosecutors even before he signed his formal plea agreement even before he pled guilty. They say he's been very helpful. Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington DC today explained that she would have considered the prison sentence for Sam patent. Were it not for his considerable cooperation? With federal prosecutors, but given the combination of the nature of his crime and his lack of a previous criminal record. And prosecutors wholehearted endorsement and appreciation for whatever it is. He's been helping them with all these months. The judge ultimately gave Sam patent today. Three years probation, and they five thousand dollar fine. And again, we think that may be the latest sentence of anybody. Thus far as Muller defendant that said with Sam patents case now coming to a close with him walking out of the courtroom today. A free, man. We the people we the observers of this salt scandal investigation. We're all still very much in the dark as to how his case and how his cooperation fit into the larger investigation. I mean, prosecutors said in open court and in a public facing court filing that Sam patent had been a great cooperator. He had a very willingly. And honestly, given them tons of good help with lots of ongoing cases when it comes to the details of what he actually helped them with what he actually told them. Those are all still a mystery s because there were all filed under seal to judge Jackson in advance of today's sentencing. So who knows if we the public will ever see those details unless and until we do we'll never really have any inkling as to what Sam Pratt, and was was helping with what Sam patent gave prosecutors that they thought was of so much value, and it's of interest because Sam Patten had ties to so many different elements of this scandal. He had connections to Cambridge Analytica. The murky and now defunct scandal ridden foreign firm that the Trump campaign used as their data operation during the campaign. Sam Patten had business connections. With Constantine Kalinic was a longtime associate of Trump's now imprisoned campaign chair Paul Manafort Kalinic himself has been indicted by the special counsel. Prosecutors have said in court on multiple occasions that they assess him to be linked to Russian intelligence San patent. Of course, also admitted to being involved in funneling illegal foreign money into the Trump inauguration, and we know the Trump inaugural is the subject of multiple ongoing investigations, including in SDN y southern district of New York, which has subpoenaed the Trump inaugural committee. Trump inaugural is also reportedly being investigated by multiple state attorneys general by at least one other US attorney's office and by multiple congressional committees was Sam Patten who illegally funneled foreign money into the inaugural was was he. Helpful to investigators or we're looking in any of those matters at this point. We do not know whatever he helped with is still all under seal. All we know is that prosecutors were absolutely delighted with him. And that is why he walked today with just probation and a relatively small fine. And speaking of ongoing investigations today. We also got this nineteen page filing. From federal prosecutors explaining actually to the same judge to judge Amy bourbon Jackson in federal district court in Washington DC, why prosecutors want her to reject a request from a number of media organizations, including CNN and the New York Times and politico in the Washington Post, all of whom are looking to have documents unsealed from the ongoing case against the president's longtime political adviser, Roger stone. Roger stone is due to go on trial in DC. This fall the media companies that are making this request to the judge they want unredacted copies of the search warrants that were executed against Roger stone around the time that he was arrested and charged in January prosecutors at the US attorney's office in DC tell the court today that these requested materials they understand why the news organizations want to see them. But they say in this filing today that those. Tone. Search warrants can't be shown to the public because of three things that would be adversely affected if the public had access to those documents number one, the first thing that would be adversely affected is the forthcoming trial. This fall in United States versus stone. It would affect their effectiveness at prosecuting Roger stone. Also, they say there are privacy interests for uncharged third parties, which would be affected by unsealing that search warrant information. And finally, they say unsettling that information would affect investigations that remain ongoing. What are those ongoing investigations? We don't know for the same reason that the same patent stuff was all filed under seal because it relates to ongoing investigations, and we're not allowed to see it. Same thing with the stone, the stone stuff, but because of all of those factors. Prosecutors are are saying no they're saying Roger stone's search warrant materials should not be released. At least not yet. We will see how judge Amy Berman Jackson rules on that in coming days. But in the meantime. We actually learned one other surprise fact in this filing from prosecutors tonight, which is about Robert Muller in this special counsel's office. We, of course know that Moeller three weeks ago submitted the report on his investigation to the newly appointed attorney general William bar attorney general William bar, then promptly threw it in a drawer and nobody's been allowed to see it since we'll have more on that later, but the submission of molars report three weeks ago. We are told that was the last official act of the special counsel's office. We will told at the time. The report went in the special counsel's office would be wrapping up its operations within days that its investigation was complete. We also started to get reports about what all the prosecutors and lawyers and FBI agents who'd been working in the special counsel's office what they'd be doing for their next jobs. We have since seen evidence. In court filings of all the ongoing court cases involving all of the indictments brought by the special counsel's office. Those have been being handed off from special counsel's office. Prosecutors to US attorneys offices around the country mostly to the US attorney's office in DC. We've seen all this evidence of how things are wrapping up around Robert Muller and his special counsel's office. But today little surprise at the end of this filing in the Roger stone case, we learned that one of the relatively high profile prosecutors on Muller's team men named errands Alinsky. We had previously not heard where errands Alinsky was going in terms of him getting a new job. But now, we know he has been named a special assistant US attorney in the US attorney's office in DC. So that's new information. One of Muller's prosecutors has essentially been transferred. He's been named a special assistant US attorney in the prosecutor's office in that DC US attorney's office that has been receiving most of Muller's ongoing cases. So a special counsel's office lawyer moved over to the office that is receiving all the special counsel offices cases, essentially to help them continue with their help them continue those prosecutions, the special counsel spokesman tonight confirm to us that. Errands, Alinsky has made that move as to whether or not we should expect other similar appointments were other people from the special counsel's office moved to other US attorney's offices to help with ongoing prosecutions that started with Muller. We don't yet know if any other special counsel's office prosecutors will do that so far it seems like errands, Alinsky is the only one. That said as we Mark today three weeks since millers report was turned in. And we remain in this remarkable period in American history. This remarkable sort of interim where the Trump administration has the Muller report. And they're not letting anybody see it. Trump's newly appointed attorney general William bar, of course, has been saying that he assigned a reduction team. Those were his words every Dexin team to cut stuff out of Muller's report before it's released either to the public or to congress Barr says that that reduction redaction team includes staff from molars office when the special counsel's office as well as Justice department personnel. This new information today, we got about Aaron's linski from the special counsel's office reminds us that we have actually no idea which staff from the special counsel's office has been taking part in this so-called reduction team that bar has been describing nor do we have any ideas who else is on that team. We have no idea what other lawyers or staffers from the Justice department have been working on those reductions as well are the other people besides special counsel's office personnel who are working on that reduction team. Are they career Justice department lawyers? Are they subject matter experts and experienced process? Shooters from the Justice department. Are they Justice department personnel who participated with special counsel's office in their investigation, and in these prosecutions or are they random Trump appointees who have been put into a room with somebody from the special counsel's office and everybody gets a sharpened pencil, and nobody gets any water, and you see who lives the longest and makes it out the door. I mean, how how is that process? Working who is involved on what grounds did anyone earned their role on that team. If what they're doing right now is censoring. The Miller report. We have no idea we are expecting some censored version some redacted version of Muller's report to be released to the public sometime next week if it happens over the weekend, I'll see you back on TV. I will be mad. I have to do that over the weekend. But if nothing else, please join me if that happens so that we can if nothing else commiserate about the loss of good weekend time for all the things we all like to do on our weekends. We don't necessarily expect it over the weekend. Everybody's telling us sometime in the next week. We'll see we'll be right here. As soon as it comes in. Meanwhile today though, Gregory Craig entered a not guilty plea in federal court in DC on two felony counts. Gregory Craig is the former White House counsel from President Obama's first time in office from his first year office, Gregory Craig entered a not guilty plea today after he was indicted yesterday on charges of lying to investigators about his contract with the Ukrainian political party. That was a client of Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, Greg Craig again, pled not guilty today. It was released on personal recognizance, you will recall that earlier this year, his high falutin law firm Skadden Arps entered into a settlement with Justice department. It included a non-prosecution agreement. The law firm had to pay a little fine had to say they were sorry had to agree to do some training. But in that agreement the law firm, basically blamed Greg Craig for all of it said, everything was all his fault. That was nice of them the firm because of that non prosecution agreement they are not being prosecuted. For what Gregory Craig allegedly did while he was a senior partner at that firm. It's just Craig standing alone as of today, he says he will plead not guilty. He says he is innocent. He says he wants to go to trial. So we shall see. And on top of all of that tonight oversight committee, chairman congressman Elijah Cummings tonight has announced to the members of his committee that if they have a problem with what he's about to do. They can come talk to him about it over the weekend. But unless somebody talks him out of it right now his intention is that on Monday morning. He is going to deliver a subpoena to a company called Mazari's USA. Now, Missouri is an accounting firm. That's had a long association with President Trump and with his various business interests, Trump organization executive and the president's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen, testified to Elijah Cummings his committee earlier this year about the president allegedly committing Bank fraud and allegedly committing insurance fraud by misrepresenting his assets and his financial standing to back up. Those claims Michael Cohen provided to Cummings as committee a few years of financial statements from Trump and Trump's business, including at least one that was prepared by. This firm Mazari's now Cummings and his committee started investigating Coen's claims as part of that investigation. This financial firm that worked with Trump czars. They expressed to Cummings in his committee that while they didn't have any intention of resisting the committee's inquiries. They would rather not respond to a simple request from the committee to hand over information. They would prefer to respond to a subpoena. Well, we now know they're getting a subpoena on Monday. And we now know this is exactly what they're going to be asked to hand over and it's sort of breathtaking quote with respect to Donald J Trump the Donald J Trump revocable trust the Trump organization Inc. The Trump organization LLC the Trump corporation, Donald J Trump holdings LLC, the Trump old post office, the Trump foundation and any parent subsidiary affiliate joint venture predecessor or successor of the foregoing with respect to all of those Mazari's is ordered by this subpoena to handover all statements of financial condition. Annual statements periodic financial reports and independent auditors reports prepared compiled reviewed or audited by Missouri. Their corporate predecessor, they will have to hand over all engagement agreements or contracts related to the preparation compilation review or auditing of such documents. They will have to hand over all underlying supporting or source documents or records related to those documents. They're also ordered to hand over communications between a specific named partner at the firm and President Trump or the Trump organization. I don't know what that's about. And this is the most interesting part to me at least the most intriguing part this subpoena, specifically directs Mazari's to hand over all communications, quote related to potential concerns that records documents explanations or other information provided by Donald Trump or other individuals from the Trump organization were incomplete inaccurate or otherwise unsatisfactory. So if there was any discussion within this account. Confirm that they were getting horse putty from Donald Trump or the Trump organization when it came to his assets and his financial standing the firm is now being directed by subpoena to produce any documents any internal communications that attests to any worries. They had in the firm any. Concerns or conclusions. They came to at that firm about the prospect that stuff they were getting from Donald Trump or the Trump organization was a lot of hooey. So this subpoena demands that those internal communications be handed over to comings and the oversight committee the subpoena is going out on Monday. And I think this is a big deal in terms of what kind of information congress is going to have to work from and it's myriad investigations of the president. We still don't know if anyone investigating the president either from the Muller investigation or from any of the attendant investigations that happened in US attorney's offices or in any of the congressional investigations. We still don't have any sense that any investigator looking into anything related to this president has ever had any substantial information when it comes to money when it comes to the president's finances, his business his taxes, and any other financial matters that might affect any of these scandals. If Mazari's is about the handle this stuff over for years and years and years of the president's financial matters and his businesses. This will hey, this'll be a big piece of information. But this will also. Ratchet up even further pressure on the question of why the president still will not allow anybody to see his tax returns. I mean, he tried to do this whole thing where he pretended that if you were under audit, you're not allowed to release your tax returns, even his own IRS admits that that's not true. The president's still sometimes tries to say that he still sometimes admits that's not true that appears to be inoperable as potential explication for why the president won't release his taxes. I mean, he's the first president in four decades to refuse to let anybody see his tax returns either as a candidate or as a sitting president. Why I mean, we know it's not the audit. Why what is he so worried about and I know it's just one thing among many that's going on right now. But on the taxes thing, we really are now in a totally unprecedented standoff in which the Trump administration appears to just flat out be breaking black letter law by refusing to hand over the president's tax returns after they were requested from the IRS by the chairman of the ways and means committee. There's a law that says they have to hand it over. Right. It is required under clear unequipped. Law that the IRS has to hand over any return, including a president's return. If that return is requested by that committee chairman in the way that it was requested this past week. They have to do it under law. The administration is so far just refusing. I mean, they're. They're trying to delay their implying they're reviewing it. They're implying there might be some grounds on which they might wage a legal fight over this. They really appear to have no legal leg to stand on at all. They are just defying the law says they have to do. I don't know what the strategy is there. I'm assuming their strategy is to expect that nobody will have the wherewithal or the bravery to try to enforce that law while they've just continue to flagrantly break it, but this is a direct clear legal confrontation between the administration refusing to do something loft there lawfully required to do. And nobody having any idea how that will be enforced. While the oversight committee is about to get a ton of financial information about the president that may shed light on why he's trying to hold those taxes back so on top of all that churn and drama all of that, which is all ongoing today, you may or may not have seen that a great newspaper in southern Florida called the Palm Beach post has also on top of all that broken a brand new story that is a whole 'nother level of oh my God. They did what? Now, I'm not sure if you've heard about this latest Palm Beach post story, but it is a doozy. And that story is coming up next wins. Hi, it's Katy Tur want to keep up with MSNBC while you're on the go subscribe to the MSN be daily newsletter. You'll get the best of what you've missed or in this unprecedented. Era of news, text MSNBC, two six six eight six six to subscribe. Have you ever had one of those? Very fancy cakes fancy desserts where it looks like a normal cake from the outside. But then you put your fork into it. And it turns out it's not a normal cake. It's a stack of a million different little cakes like like ten million like cake layers or crepes stacked up together with frosting or whatever in between. The apparently this is a whole category of dessert. I didn't know this existed before this year on my birthday, the nice, ladies, my buddies who work in hair and makeup room here in this building. They got me a cake like that for my birthday. It was amazing totally mind-bending thing. I looked at the piece of cake that they gave me a candle in it. And we sang and everything and I thought it was cheesecake, and then I put my fork into it. And I was like now it's ten thousand tiny little cheesecakes, I'll stepped on top of each other. This is the greatest thing I've ever seen a greatest thing I've ever put in my mouth. I had no idea that existed before this month. And that is what this new story out of south Florida's except it's not a million layers of cake. It's a million layers of weirdness one on top of the other that culminate in tonight's news story. I mean, it started with the owner of the patriots football team, Robert Kraft and a number of other rich guys getting picked up on prostitution related charges tied to a Florida massage. Parlor, what does this have to do with the president? Oh, no, no. This just layer one. There's more layers to come. We would soon. Learn that the original owner of the Florida massage parlor and alleged prostitution in question was someone who was a ubiquitous president ubiquitous presence at the president's private Florida club, which is called mar-a-lago the pictures of this woman with the president alone are their own distinct little level of weirdness for this story. Then you get the next layer on top of that. Which is the Miami Herald reporting that she seems. To be tied to a number of organizations that are sponsored by or affiliated with the Chinese government. And or the ruling Chinese communist party, oh, including the Chinese government inviting her to visit the visit of Chinese worship into Florida port au then we learn on top of that through really good reporting at mother Jones magazine that the same woman has been running a very very special kind of investment company, which has been marketing in China, the investment that she's looking for is a cash investment in her what her company will sell you. If you pay her is that she'll get you into mar-a-lago to meet the president or to meet a member of the president's family or to meet Trump administration cabinet members. Or perhaps you'd prefer a White House meeting. You could pay her to get one of those as well at least so said her marketing company. I mean, so at this point in the deliciously, Kate, we've got the massage parlor owner selling Chinese nationals personal physical access to the president his family and cabinet level. Officials in the administration while she is simultaneously hanging out at the president's private club taking pictures with him and working with the Chinese communist party, and the Chinese government in a number of murky organizations that seemed to have no real public facing purpose layer on top of that the arrest on March thirtieth of new lady we had never heard of before at mar-a-lago and a secret service affadavit that soon followed which explained the very strange tale of this woman inexplicably being allowed in tomorrow Lago while the president was on a visit there she claimed variously to be there for a UN Chinese friendship event, which was maybe something marketed by the massage parlor lady it was an event that was not happening at mar-a-lago that day in any event. She also told secret service officials at one point that perhaps she was just there at mar-a-lago that day to go swimming. The initial affidavit from the secret service indicated that the woman when she was arrested was not found to be carrying a swimsuit. She was found to be carrying four cell phones, a laptop an external hard drive and a thumb drive that they soon realize was infected with malicious malware, how did they figure it out? Well, secret service agent who later testified in court admitted that part of the reason they knew she had malware on this. Thumb drive is that while they were questioning her one secret service agent popped the thumb drive into his own computer it immediately began to install files, according to the Miami Herald's account of this testimony, quote, the agent saw that as a very out of the ordinary event that he had never seen happened before during this kind of analysis the agent had to immediately stop the analysis to halt any further corruption of his computer, we then learned that the woman was not just carrying the four cellphones. The laptop the external hard drive and the thumb drive infected with malicious malware that immediately starts installing itself. Once you pop into any USB drive. She. Didn't just bring those things on her trip from China to the United States, which resulted in her getting into mar-a-lago now in her hotel room down the road agents found that she was also storing nine additional USB drives five sim cards yet another cell phone that's five cellphones. Plus a signal detector, which is specifically used to find surveillance devices, like hidden cameras, also thousands and thousands of dollars in cash. She had initially told secret service agents at mar a Lago who questioner as to why she had the fourth the four cell phones and the laptop with her. She said she didn't want to leave valuable stuff like that in her hotel room just that thousands of dollars in cash that was okay to leave there. And remember besides she was just there at mar a Lago to go swimming. It's been a long time since I was a lifeguard, but I would advise you if you've got that many electronic devices on you don't try to swim today. The woman with all of the electron IX and the cash who turn. Mar-a-lago? She was indicted in federal court in Florida. She has been held in custody since she was initially arrested on March thirtieth. She's receiving consular assistance from the Chinese government. It does appear that she may have had links to the massage parlor lady who is offering to sell Chinese nationals access to President Trump through mar-a-lago that has not been fleshed out in any court documents yet. So we await any further information about that. But now look today at what the Palm Beach post has has piled on top of all of this stack. I mean, you thought you thought you couldn't take one more layer of weirdness. But but here, it's just just a thin. This is the Mayflower Hotel, which is very swanky quite near the White House in downtown Washington DC, this is a picture of an event that took place in the ballroom at the Mayflower Hotel the night before Donald Trump was sworn in in January twenty seventeen the event apparently featured hundreds of guests also an Asian opera star also lots of fancied a big fancy dance performance. It was a big gala event. This is from a Facebook photo which described the event as an Asian American Pacific islander inaugural ball inaugural gala to celebrate Trump's inauguration. It was hosted by two entities. A Trump campaign advisory board the Asian Pacific advisory committee to the Trump campaign, which was an adjunct of the Trump campaign. Also, a registered political committee, which is called the national committee of Asian American Republicans guess who's the head fundraiser for the national committee of Asian American Republicans. It's the massage parlor lady, of course, it is to attend to this inaugural. Co hosted by this Trump campaign advisory committee, you had to pay a bunch of money for the ticket to get in which apparently hundreds of people did. But there were also named sponsors of the event, according to someone who worked directly on fundraising for the event who was interviewed by the Palm Beach post today, those named sponsors for this paid anywhere between five grand and fifteen grand to be listed as a major sponsor of the event that person who worked directly on the vent says that all the checks from people who attended the event all the checks from all the big dollar sponsors. They were all made out to that Asian American political committee to the massage parlor ladies committed to the national committee of Asian American Republicans. That's who everybody made their checkout to everybody who bought a ticket all of the sponsors, and then all of the money promptly disappeared quoting from today's Palm Beach post, quote, thousands of dollars in donations flowed to an undisclosed undisclosed source at a Trump inaugural ball with links to China and dubious donors, but no finan-. Financial records, the lavish Asian Pacific American presidential inaugural gala, drew more than nine hundred people quote, but there's no trace of the money raised that night as required by law because the national committee of Asian American Republicans the event host is a registered political committee any contributions to that committee must by law quickly beat reported to the Federal Election Commission, but despite this gala event. No donations were ever reported. The committee's executive director. A Florida tech entrepreneur named cliff Lee told the Palm Beach post, this this is the greatest line in the entire thing. He told the Palm Beach post today that he knows where the money from this event went quote, but I don't want to tell you. Lee has drawn international attention as an associate of Cindy Yang massage parlor, lady the one time head of fundraising for the committee that hosted the gala her access to Trump through his mar-a-lago estate in Palm Beach and involvement in groups linked to the Chinese communist party prompted top congressional Democrats to seek a federal investigation people involved in the gala Yvette the inaugural event, again say that all the checks for this event were made out to the national committee of Asian American Republicans one of the people involved in the event said that there were definitely foreign nationals in attendance at the at the event, it is not clear whether some of those foreign nationals contributed any money to that event or paid to get in. Of course, foreign nationals are not allowed to give money to that kind of political committee. But regardless none of the money was ever reported anywhere. Nobody knows what happened to any of the money. This is one of the Trump inaugural galas. You had to pay to get in you have to pay to sponsor it. There were lots of named sponsors. What happened all the money? The only explanation from the people who were running this thing. I got an who have the what will on the one hand the Trump campaign adjunct group. Right. And then it's the Asian American Republican committee again with a league fundraiser is the Michelle massage parlor lady who was linked to the thumb drives at mar-a-lago lady. They're just refusing to say what happened to any of the money. They raised at that event. Quote, lead declined to say how much money was raised that night or whether any donations went to him, the embattled Trump inaugural committee or any of the other two dozen event organizers he told the post quote the money went into the right account legally. But I just don't have to tell you where that is. I just don't have to tell you. I am not sure how much taller this particular slice of weirdness can get before it topples over. But if this net relates back to the Trump inaugural with all of the ongoing investigations of the Trump inaugural already, including two US attorney's offices. I mean, that's going to be linked as well to the mar-a-lago insane Chinese spying story too. Seriously. Joining us now is Lulu Ramadan is reporter for the Palm Beach post who broke the story. Ms ramadan. I really appreciate you being here. Thank you. Thanks for having me, Rachel. So I let me ask you. I mean, I you can tell that. I think this is a little bit of a guns. Oh story. But let me ask you. If I got the basic details right in terms of what you were able to find out about this gala. It's connection to this political committee, and what happened to the money. Yeah. Absolutely pretty much summed it up. It's pretty complicated. But there is this inaugural gala, and we have no financial records to tell us where that money went for nationals attended. And we have no way of knowing if the money came from them came from from these sponsors, and who collected it in terms of the potential legal ramifications here, it seems like you've got a scoop on your hands. Here you in the Palm Beach post producing this today is the first time I think anybody's ever seen reference to this line of inquiry, but you do point out that the committee involved here that was the apparent recipient of all these funds. They are required to report all of their donations inefficacy filings. They've never reported anything related to this event. Do we know if the FCC or any other law enforcement entity is looking into this at all? So we don't know at this point. And they haven't acknowledged any open investigations as far as we know. But it is pretty recent this appears to be the first reporting about this. So who knows what lines of inquiry are going to pop up. You also mentioned that among the obviously people had to pay to get in. There was ticket price to get in. But there were also named sponsors of the event who paid seems to have paid several thousand dollars at least in order to be sponsors, one of the things that you mentioned in your piece is that the lead sponsor of the event was raided by the FBI just a few weeks after this event happened. First of all is there any is there any indication that there's any connection between that F B I raid, and what happened at this mysterious Trump inaugural gala, and do we know further with F B I ride rate was about. Yes. So that reporting was actually from Bloomberg business week. And we know very little about the raid insight pan thoughts I pan casino. But we do know that a month later some contractors who were hired by imperial Pacific that casino company were arrested for harboring or hiring foreign workers legally on tourist visas. So you can infer that it possibly had something to do with that. But interestingly enough these corporations and businesses that sponsored the gala a several of them benefited from a Bill that Trump signed into law a year later that actually assisted them and offered more avenues for hiring foreign workers legally, which essentially allow these businesses to avoid what we now know some of them did do and hire foreign workers illegally on tourist visas. It's I mean, we you're right that we don't know how these dots. Connect the dots. That you've been able to spell out with this. Reporting and connecting to other reporting. Here is we've got entities, including this rated Sipe pan casino firm, donating money to an entity that disappeared it. We have no idea where the money went. It definitely wasn't reported to the after that money was donated to this Trump inaugural gala. The Trump administration did take action to benefit those firms and others like them. Now. Nobody's accounted for that money. Still. And we don't have any sense that anybody's looking for it. It's just a. I realize it's a complicated set of facts. But when you line them up of chronologically in terms of who got what for what they're what they appeared to have spent their money on this is just a stunning piece. Luther Ramadan reporter at the Palm Beach post. Congratulations on the scoop, and please keep us apprised. Thank you. I'll do. All right. Much more to get to tonight. Stay with us. Yesterday, the founder of WikiLeaks was arrested in London. The United States is seeking his extradition on hacking charges yesterday, President Trump tried to pretend like he'd never heard of this week leaks. Let alone sung their praises hundreds of times on the campaign trail tweeted about them in numerous times, and frankly based the whole end of his presidential campaign on hyping in promoting WikiLeaks and its distribution of stolen documents that WikiLeaks distributed after obtaining them from Russian military intelligence Wiki who now I've never heard. I don't doesn't don't don't recall that was the president yesterday today. It was the vice president's turned to weigh in on this delicate matter it went poorly. The Justice department is now seeking extradition, and we're going to bring Julian Assange to Justice look work working with Chelsea Manning. Julian Assange was involved in one of the greatest compromises of classified information in American history. Literally put. American military personnel at risk and behold into account when Justice system. The president when he was a candidate was welcomed seeing WikiLeaks and the information that they got from Hillary Clinton is that change. I think the prisoner always is you in the media, do what was welcomes information. But that was in no way and endorsement even rebel unders we now understand was involved in disseminating classified information. The United States of America was in no way, an endorsement the president saying I love WikiLeaks or WikiLeaks is a treasure trove or saying go look at the WikiLeaks. I love reading the week of the talking about the mentioning the organization one hundred and forty one times at rallies alone in the campaign's final lump none endorsement, it's just this is a president. Who is a voracious consumer of information as you know? That's what he's known for right? He's just he's a reader. But I will also draw your attention to that thing that said there at the end we just play the end part again. That was in no, way and endorsement even organization rebel under. We now understand was involved in disseminating classified information. The United States of America. We now understand now. Now, we know I mean, well after the campaign now, we know that this was an organization that was involved in disseminating classified information back in twenty ten around the time of the whole Wiki leaks, Chelsea Manning gigantic hack thing that has now led to these charges against Julian Assange, Mike Pence was like what the number three Republican in congress that was kind of a scandal at the time the idea that WikiLeaks was involved in the distribution of classified information. We now understand was involved in disseminating classified information. We now understand that that happened in two thousand ten but you're only admitting to knowing it now. I think of myself as sort of a marathon news consumer, but I admit I admit Mike Pence is kind of wearing me out with this. We're now we now understand them to. We'll be right back. Attention attention, quote after consultation with my generals, my generals and military experts. Please be advised that the United States government will not accept or allow dot dot dot dot dot dot dot dot dot, new tweet, transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the US military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming dot dot dot dot dot dot dot dot dot new tweet victory that cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you with that series of vaguely incoherent tweets in July, twenty seventeen still fairly new president declared a new policy on who would be allowed to serve their country in the United States military. He surprise he surprised the thousands of transgender troops who seem to be serving just fine. He surprise military leadership would be trying to implement this new announced. By tweet policy. The new policy was fought over in the courts round after round for more than a year until finally in January, the conservative majority on the supreme court ruled that the president could impose this band that he had unveiled randomly on Twitter that day. And now today it happened. The Trump administration's official anti trans policy goes into effect in the US military today transgender troops are either barred from enlisting or if you're currently serving you are counseled on your failure to adhere to standards, and quote, given an opportunity to correct those deficiencies the advent of this new policy drew sharp reproach from medical leaders, including former US and military surgeons general who released a blistering statement today condemning the new policy, quote, we are troubled by the defense department's characterization of the need to go undergo gender transition as a deficiency. And by the addition of gender dysphoric to official lists of congenital or develop. Mental defects that include bed-wetting and disturbances of perception thinking, emotional, control or behavior. We've already expressed concern over the defense department's misuse of science to justify discharging transgender servicemembers and denying the medically necessary care, quote, here, we note that there is a global medical consensus that the need to undergo gender transition is not a deficiency or defect that stigmatizing transgender individuals in this way is inappropriate for US government entity, and that scapegoating and denial of medical care will compromise the wellbeing of transgender servicemembers who are otherwise fit and available for duty. Joining us now is Aaron Belkin he's counting director of the palm center on public policy. And he's the author of how we want progressive lessons from the repeal of don't ask don't tell Mr. Belkin. Thanks very much for being with us. Appreciate you making the time. So it's a pleasure to be here. Given your previous involvement in don't ask don't tell fight. And in fact, your book on the subject, I wonder how you see. Any parallels or lack thereof in terms of how this policy is being implemented, and the type of discrimination that it means. This is don't ask don't tell for transgender troops. And it's a day of great anguish for the troops. The Trump administration is claiming that this is just an unoccupied policy at won't harm the troops. But that's what we were told at the beginning of don't ask don't tell and we saw how well that worked out this policy will injure all transgender troops and effectively force them to remain in the closet, the idea of gender dysphoric, some sort of defect that makes you unfit for military service is something that the Obama administration took on dropping that term and used in that way and in two thousand sixteen and since then thousands of openly transgender servicemembers have been serving essentially without there being any problem. How is this going to work in terms of grandfathering people in who came out under the previous policy when the previous type of discrimination of when the credence iteration of discrimination. This kind was dropped by President Obama. So there are about fourteen thousand seven hundred transgender troops today and about one thousand of them have received diagnoses of gender dis fauria since inclusive policy was put into place three years ago. And the administration is pointing to the very small minority of about ten percent of transgender troops and saying look see how humane we are. Because we're gonna let these people remain in service and continue to continue to get medical care. But even for these thousand troops who are grandfathered. They're going to be burdens to by the stigma of serving in an institution that says that they are quote unquote, plagued by a deficiency and a defect. So even for the tiny minority of troops. Who are grandfathered? There's really no protection for them. Given the supreme court ruling that effectively allowed this to happen today. How do you see the fight shaping up over this? Obviously, I think people aren't going to take this lying down. I think the number of transgender troops who are serving openly and. Proudly and benefiting the military is going to create I think sort of an unstoppable moral force in terms of this being eventually overturned, but it's hard for me to see what that path looks like how do you envision it? Well, this will this policy will fail in the same way. That don't ask don't tell failed. It'll hurt the military and hurt the troops. And it's not going to last because the public won't tolerate a policy that hurts the troops indefinitely. But we can't predict know whether the collapse of the policy will be in court or in congress where there's no bipartisan legislation to protect the troops. Or perhaps if the White House changes hands, we know that when the White House changes hands if inclusive policy has still not been put back into place. It will be re restored very very quickly. But there's just no way to predict right now how this ban will crumble Aaron Belkin political science professor, author founding director of the palm center, thanks for being here tonight. There's a landmark day in a bad way. But. Thanks for helping us understand the applications. Appreciate your time. We'll be right back. If polling truly mattered at this point in the primary process. Joe Lieberman would have been the democratic nominee in two thousand and four and there would have been a president Giuliani in two thousand eight and Sarah Palin would have been running against Barack Obama in two thousand twelve polling this far in advance. In other words, doesn't mean anything that said, aren't you curious about this young mayor of south bend, Indiana. Who is surging up the polls right now polling third right now in Iowa and New Hampshire behind only Joe Biden in Bernie Sanders. Pete buddha. Judge is going to be here on this show for the first time ever on Monday night. I have never interviewed people to judge before. But he's having a moment. And he's going to be here for the interview Monday. They'll say, I never gave you nothing. Thanks for being with us this Friday night.

June 17, 2020

"Stay tuned after the show for a message from Pharma. Could Wednesday morning I'm Anna Palmer and welcome to your politico playbook audio briefing and I'm Jay Sherman next week. The Senate is pivoting. It's moving to consider Senator Tim Scott Police reform legislation. Yes, that's right. The Senate is clearing the decks for Scott's police bill one hundred thirty nine days before Election Day. This represents a new sense of urgency for the Republican leadership in the Senate which as recently. Recently as earlier. This week was saying they would not get this done until after July fourth GOP leadership believes it has its membership in line behind the legislation, and we've not really heard any significant dissent yet, so here's the question now. What Will Democrats do, but connell will need sixty votes to bring this bill up, so he needs it. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democrats to cooperate. The Democrats had leadership and caucus conference calls Tuesday and they didn't discuss strategy because they had not seen the bill. That's the position. They are maintaining that they can't make a play call until they see legislative text. They'll see the today and have to consider what to do. Here's what we know. Democrats have made it clear. They believe that President Donald. Trump's executive order is weak and many preemptively pegged Scott's bill as not going far enough, but their next step is a bit trickier. Can they refuse McConnell the ability to consider Scott's bill handing GOP convenient talking point that it was the Democrats who blocked police reform in the Senate that seems risky, given the moment the. The country is in Democrats could allow the chamber to debate bill and try to amend it. This would be the legislative process. Working there will be some tough votes for the GOP. And maybe just maybe it could lead to getting a bill through the Senate. The White House. Which oftentimes sees the legislative process is cumbersome, obtuse and unnecessary will need to be engaged here. Here expect Mark Meadows to be on Capitol Hill throughout this process the big event today, the House of Markup Bits, police, Bill and judiciary. Take place in the CBC Ten am. This may seem anti-climactic because the house already has the votes to pass whatever police bill it wants, but Democrats are under tremendous pressure from base to produce here further. Democrats are hoping to pick. Pick up some moderate. GOP votes when they bring this bill to the floor Peter, Baker the new. York Times writes. The president dismisses criticism of law enforcement unless it's his. Here's something to watch either cable scoop Tuesday night that the house will require masks in committee hearings bought.

So we'll say like dating guys, and you tell him I like, oh, yeah. I'm a sports broadcasters like that so cool. Can you get me a pitcher with ERO like, no, that's actually? Like, no, that's like, I hate you. Why did you go? Then then once it's like we're watching a game or they're like young and go with my buddies and watch them like cool. I'll be also at that bar watching that exact same giving. It's like, Ooh, I don't want. You like this is my thing. It's like, no. It's also my thing too. And then they don't like it. And then we break up, and then sports has been very difficult to date, but then on top of it too. I would imagine the comic because people aren't aware you also by his budding stand up committee. That's a traditionally very male world. And even though, you know, it's it's come some ways in terms of females being able to gain prominence. That's not really still most men. I think like to think of themselves as funnier than women in general on that. That's the whole joke. They're like, oh, yeah. Women aren't funny. And they can't be funny. When I do these open mics first of all every guy they're just talking about their hammer. Right. So. So that's the like, and they like that environment that they can just do it. And then they see me, and I didn't open mic once where I talked about the Super Bowl, and I talked about girly and lack of yards, then I'm not going to go with a jokes or whatever. But then guy came up and his joke was that he went to a party, and none of the girls. Understood what was going on in the Super Bowl. And so he said, oh, it's like an episode of the Kardashians. And he's to is. He was telling his joke looked at me. And he was like I can't actually tell the show because this girl just came up here and talked all about sports, and I was like, yeah, you're right. You know, what the jokes of saying that girls don't know about sports are over. Okay. Do about the car. Dash. They've had a hell of. Hell of a week, by the way. That's all. That's all publicity. I think it is. Trust me, it is. But they've had if you if you want to go down that Deborah. I assume at least one of the things you referencing is khloe and tristen and clo- reportedly. He's is reported all one word now with Tristan Thompson in north Theresa's Tristan. Okay. I mean, he's like khloe. He's he's I mean and also to how many Christians are you going to confuse him with the the new acronym. Fours. Name is now J T T K LeBron help some of that too. As far as Tristian Tristan carnations. That is true. But so Tristan Thompson Tristan Thompson Kardashian is hard ass. You. Hyphen as well. We've we've done that. And gave it to urban community. We call them t t k. So he reportedly I unless this has been just flat out confirmed hooked up with one of chloe's sister's friends, yet, I Jordan woods, and which sister, Kylie. Okay. Yeah. You know? Right. Her friend since the eighth grade. Yeah. Oh, but trail, but you know, that this is real by the way because I read Ken is no longer following tristen or the friend on Instagram. Yeah. That's that's a real thing. Oh, the next model. Now, the new episode of or keeping up with the Kardashians. K U W. Yeah. It's a shame by the way, the Kirk is in single because right now, he's he's into all the demographics can do it. All I blame a lot of that on my wife. I'm trying to go to sleep. And all of a sudden you hear the back. But no that is my like, what are you? And I get I get slept into what's going drama. It's like the NBA. It is right. Speaking of the NBA and drama the Lakers. Oh, yeah. All those all those radio classes, cook, man. That was a great transition, man. One could argue I'm self taught particularly well, but the Lakers with a massive win last night over the rockets won eleven one oh six lot of implications. From that we will get into that next. Also to obviously talk about this, very strange and a lot of ways very unsettling story involving Robert Kraft, the owner of the patriots Antica, Kim Manetzky. Julie Stewart Binks Kirk Morrison ESPN LA Sodano show, Andy Kim net ski Julie Stewart banks and Kirk Morrison in George we were talking before about how we're going to dress a Lakers. But actually, we're going to move ahead to Robert Kraft, and we are looking to hear shortly from jump Sinti from the Palm Beach post one of the papers that has been involved with his story. And this was quite unexpected of Robert Kraft being charged with two misdemeanor. Egner counts of soliciting prostitution. Yeah. This this broke today. He's part of essentially a sting like, and so it's clear Robert Kraft was not the target of the sting the place where he is alleged to have been soliciting prostitution is part of a sting and more than two hundred people who have engaged insects acts with the employees of these different massage parlours in south Florida are part of this arrests in part of this larger crackdown, and this is what really makes it frightening is that it involves human trafficking. Like, that's really what the sting is about. And that's what makes this whole thing really really messy and joining us right now to talk about this Moore is John Pesenti from the Palm Beach post, John. How are you? Arguing are you? Good good. I am I guess to begin. How did this investigation start like what what was the impetus from this? And how long's it been going on? Well, they investigation from my understanding is actually started with the department of health. It's damp to inspect all these stodgy parlors, and they went in there, and they saw cases and suitcases were opened that had condoms in it, and they referred that matter to the police against started the stopping men who were leaving the facility and asking them about it. And then they got a search warrant to run a a few days in January in which they could put actual surveillance cameras in the civility. And that's how they got these men. So this is something that has been forty five today. So John this has been going on for over the last couple of months they've had this investigation or is this year to year long investigation process. I think it started in October November. When from what I understand from my information. Talking with John Paulson t from the Palm Beach post and came in at ski, Julie Stewart Binks Kirk Morrison Julie here, just and I with the gimme, okay? So just wondering how it what way is this part of a bigger deal. Like is this just a tip of the iceberg of an investigation that could implicate many more people. Oh, yeah. They back the name. For the more people. And it's interesting that they're I mean craft the poorest with the most well-known individual. But we got a former chief operating officer of CitiBank we have some like. Eighty one or eighty two your whole at the you know Volvo bit about men company and. They. Yeah, we got we hear that. There's going to be forced to get names to be revealed how prevalent an issue is this in Florida in particular. I mean, obviously human trafficking worldwide problem at the big issue where that I think we have the we have the traffic and hotline calls and where the number three state in the country for setup line calls. You know, John also to as this story has now developed the investigation is still ongoing there will be more names. But when you hear a name like Robert Kraft today, you know, how did that shake up? I guess a lot of people not only in the community. But how does this investigation now Turney with other prominent names still left to be named? What what do you mean? I mean, you mean, you think in nerve it is that what you're saying. Is there more people like I is there. More of a sense of maybe local people, local, you know, whether there's politicians or local people who all knew about it. Because there's a prominent guy like Robert Kraft is there other people possibly are. Rumblings are rumors of people who could be named in this. Eventual investigation thing that struck me was at such a man of such wealthy me would end up at such a facility. Certainly if he wanted to have dalliance he could have. You know, probably afforded a a call girl of. You know, very expensive call girl. It's like he could've beaten at a five star restaurant, but he ends up at this place. It's like McDonald's and his limo driver drop them off and pick them up, and it's just very odd. It's also very odd declined health. Like, I mentioned some other executives there, and they're all kind of older, gentlemen. And it seems that there was some kind of communication about this one place. We don't know what it is. But they seem to be getting around in a certain age group certain kind of executive circle and that actually leads to the next question. I wanted to ask talking with jump cinci from Palm Beach post about the situation with Robert Kraft. The patriots owner being charged with two counts of missed misdemeanor. Solicitation of prostitution Sodano show in Chemnitz. Julie Stewart banks Kirk Morrison, it Robert Kraft is a name that's going to surprise a lot of people because of his prominence in the situa-. Nation eight from your reporting have you gotten a sense of no a better way of putting this. But like if this is regular behavior for him. Well, I can't I I haven't been able to confirm that yet. But we are heading down that after I mean, there was a situation in Boston that involves a very wealthy individual about the same age as Robert Kraft who being extorted by a prostitute. That name was gagged by the court and never came out. A lot of speculation was who in Boston who was crackles one of those games being bandied the bath. But there was never any evidence that it was him. So I guess we'll have to see where if that story comes bubbling back up from John you mentioned that sex trafficking is pretty prominent sort of in the area that you are and sort of in Florida for those who don't understand, you know, the parameters of sex trafficking in really what it means. What is the gravity of this situation? As also that it applies to Robert Kraft. The gravity of the situation for the people who are charged. Yes. And for him while, you know, for for a first offender most prosecutors are not looking for jail time. What they wanted do is educate. They're worried about STD's. They're worried about HIV and a demand that they, you know, attend to class, basically, that's it. And and then, you know, if you get caught again in your facing, you know, I think up to up to a year in jail, and then he could face up to five years in prison. If you get caught a third time, but you know, because of this you know, that this is part of a trafficking ring that could bring. New parameters into that you can send in Alaska specter, especially my that my sources say effectively, it's it's it's the prosecutor spiel that the men knew it was that these women were being exploited. And then last question for John we're talking with John incentive from the Palm Beach post. I couldn't help. But think about how this story with Robert Kraft, and these other of people being charged with these crimes is coming at the exact same time as our Kelly about to be charged. If he hasn't already the Jeffrey Epstein case being reexamined. Do you feel like we're maybe at a moment. Now, we're just the subject of human trafficking, and sex trafficking is top of mind. And there may be more of a determination to do something about this. Well, you know it waxes lanes. I remember a few years ago, maybe around two thousand eight that they it was also a big priority of law enforcement to make a dent in. This is the oldest profession so if if it's resilient so this kind of operation next seeing here has been done repeatedly by local law enforcement. We, you know, did I cover here over the years that clean them out. They come back. They clean them out. They come back. But I don't think they can get to the nut of you know, how they are rooting and enticing these women to come over here to be exploited. In the I don't know how it is in California. But the brothel industry here is vibrant. It's not hard to find a block here in south Florida. And they're pretty I mean, you can pass them by and you can they have certain side, you certain signals to the John that they're there. I mean, even with the closing a back page. I think that they're still flourishing John's Aaron strip balls all over the all over our county jumps into the Palm Beach post. Thank you very much of the time. Really? Appreciate it. Okay. Thank you. Just say really strange story involving Robert Kraft it. Yeah. I think it's going to turn out to be very ugly story involving Robert Kraft, however, directly he's involved with the ugliest elements of Stephanie something we're going to be talking about as the show progresses, but we will swing a back to something a little less heavy a little more fun. The Lakers their win over the rockets last night coming out of the all star break and the significance that I think comes from the way that they won into Kim Annette's. Julie Stewart banks Kirk Morrison Sodano show ESPN LA Nuku Nuku Nuku. With a couple of months, but I was gonna say OC Jackson junior who was on earlier with Mason, my brother, Brian. I remember him wearing a jacket for the release of his dad's. I guess most recent album is like a couple of months ago. So that sense, it's good good satin jacket, a sadness Iceland sound there to still make an album. Yeah. He's like, oh, gee like got the right beats on this album right album. Really right now. A couple beats you good. There's nothing that guy doesn't do like literally. He does everything from the music that got him started to running a basketball league. It's amazing. I mean, like ice cube businessman, be a business. You know, what's really smart about, you know, he he does a lot of movies involving kids, right? And now not. So you're not just known by me. And guys my age on house a hold of the. Generation after generation. Like, some of don't even know some kids might not know you wraps. It's funny. You say that Mike because my daughter is seven and like she knows basketball, and like the NBA sort of threw us, Moses. Because of what I do. But she doesn't have like a deep interest in it. Right. Sure. I exposures to who. Lebaron was was an episode of the cartoon. Teen titans. Go we're gonna Brana does self and like they kept referring huge. Yeah. They kept referring to MS superstar, LeBron James. And he was she was like five, and that's when she flirts realized LeBron exists. The minds of those kids right now sell them shoes in a day. You know, no question just like the Steph curry shoot, you know, even on the the the young women now he's handed make had to make shoes for yellow. That was a really good move that he changed that. But the gotta gotta gotta put it into the young minds. And that's why I love ice cube. Remember are we there yet? Remember that? Oh, yeah. No. He was crazy too. But then there was a different ice cube in players club too. What thing is usually. He's the family man or the gang. So we're going from Robert Kraft to play club and is to me. And then then we're going to Lakers huge win last one eleven one of six over the rockets. They bring themselves up to twenty nine hundred twenty nine they come back from down nineteen in the third quarter. You've got big games from Brandon Ingram. Kyle coups matter. Huge second-half Josh heart only had four points didn't even play till the second half. But he's energy in that second half changes on plus twenty two in just nineteen minutes. Reggie Bullock had a good game, Casey, Peden shoot. Well, but had some nice defensive plays. And then we saw LeBron go into activated mode. Guys activated in that fourth quarter. A lot of positives about this one. But there are also still some things to work on the fact that you're down nineteen points. Really kind of gets me like if we don't want to see a lot of miles go on the Bron don't get in that position in the first place. I think what I learned yesterday. First of all great win. Yes. It was no matter what. It's a great win. It's a huge win. It's not one that you to circle in your calendar. Say oh, man things changed here. But to start the second half of the season the way that they did coming back to me. It showed me not first of all we hadn't seen. We haven't. We had not seen this activate LeBron. Okay member. He's never done it this early before. I usually wait to the playoffs. But he's activating early. We got a glimpse of what that was last night. Because we also saw glimpses of vintage LeBron that we hadn't seen throughout the year consistently. We saw it in spurts. But for that. Would you say about a seven eight minutes stretch last night? It was lie. Fourth quarter, o- award came home. That's what you're talking about. Oh, oh, you've been hold known. Well in some ways, though, he has to hold out. Right. Because when you're at the beginning of the game would also I mean when you're talking about his age coming off this injure the most significant of his career with that mileage his mileage. I did a piece for the athletic. I'm brother Brian are covering the Lakers for the athletic before the season began taking a look at LeBron's mileage. It's insane. What he's doing? Yeah. Like, I mean, I'm not a basketball historian. But I'm pretty sure what he is doing the type of mileage that he has accumulated and still accumulating right now is unprecedented. And because of that like he's going to have to do some type of self maintenance as this goes along just to make sure he can preserve himself for the season. And not burn up. Also, the next three yet was the concern heading into this game was like everyone said, oh, we know. Lebron can do this in the past. We know we've seen it we've seen it. But there comes a point where it doesn't happen again. Right. And yes, maybe you decide in the fourth quarter. This is when I activate when you're down the nineteen points. You don't do it from the start of the game. Yes. It would be so much easier to activate if he kept it a little closer. Which if I'm the Lakers. I would look you know, because you have to learn something from game. I'd say let's not get ourselves into that position. Again share? We can be down ten point. We can be down twelve points. But we can't have to every game. Dig ourselves out of a grave. I think obviously for them still coming out of the digging themselves out of that grave going into the game. Andy, the one thing that I was asking about this Lakers team is the trust. Whereas the trestle into come from. I saw a piece of trust looks like yes, absolutely listened to Caspian, Los Angeles. This was the first time in a while that we've seen the Lakers look like an actual team. Just and especially over the last few weeks with the trade deadline chaos that clearly had everybody including the front office. Everybody Ron veterans kids. Everybody was caught up in this and they'd grown into a disconnected team that it was low on morale. And that point where they were down nineteen you're feeling like, okay. They were saying the right things Wednesday during practice, but are they still fractured? And that was a moment where they could have. Yes. And like when you were saying Kirk like the whole season doesn't change from last night. And you're right. But last night felt like a moment that maybe you're seeing things begin to change like a tangible moment that you'll look back on and say, okay, that's where the ship began to get righted. Yeah. And we talked yesterday about how we want. We all knew LeBron had to be the playoff guy or the activated guy. But we wanted to know what everyone else was going, right? We see Cal coups have a night like eat at Brandon Ingram was incredible. And you mentioned Andy just the other guys stepping up. That's what you need and the effect of playoff. Lebron and activated LeBron inspires those guys. So that's a huge moment going forward. I think the trust. I was wanting to say to is down the stretch. Who do I believe in who can LeBron dish to Brent Ingram had a great game? That's that's good. My only concern is that an you know random I want to see it on Saturday too. Yeah. Don't give me that on Thursday. We'll be that on Saturday to is one thing that's been really good because last night. Brandon Ingram went to the line fourteen times right in and of itself is impressive and he made eleven of his free throws. And this is not a good free throw shooting team at all. And Brandon Ingram has been historically over his career in the sixties. He's not been a great free throw shooter over in February and over like, maybe like the last ten games. He's quietly been hitting free throws. And as he should we should. You know, as he should be making these free throws. But like it it. It's the Chris rock you supposed to take care your kids. I get it. I think it goes back to, you know, before the trade deadline, you know, thinking about how how's he's going to get that stress out or. You know, man trae me, maybe we'll shoot some free throw. Let me make that could have been it. But I think for me one of the biggest things last night. We're just watching the Bronco for that game. And then also too. It was the trust into know throwing it out to Reggie bullet. We already know that going into it that LeBron is going to make the best basketball play. Right. And to see him to have faith in a guy who you just traded for last week. I mean, what trade deadline's what a week two weeks old now. Well, don't you? Veggie bullets mayor two weeks. And he he did last night while we've been waiting for these Lakers to do all season who was going to be the knockdown shooter. Who was going to be the guy that's gonna stand right there in the corner and wait for the ball to because when it's here, you gotta catch and shoot I saw that last night from Reggie book. That's the trust that I saw and LeBron talked about how they wanted to set a tone for the remaining at the time twenty five games of the season. Obviously. No, we haven't play home in a long time. So we wanted to get fans something to to cheer about an obviously, we know got ugly third quarter, but we just showed great neck rhyme. And I'd be able to get some stops builder to get on a break play good and the Laker basketball. So you know, we continued on a roll we got a two game road trip. And we want to try to take care of business in our I wanna go up there. He mentioned that it was likely in the third quarter. And I don't wanna be this devil's advocate here. Right bunch of Lakers homers. But I know you're going to say words van Kirk. But what happened in the first of all Lakers rash should be thanking this last night because also delivered a blow to the Sacramento Kings at? Oh, yeah. About the Lakers, so very very cheap. But what happened in the first half? Like it almost looked like the brunt end even warmed up like it was not many activation yet. It wasn't yet activated and Israel. Remember who they were playing to? I mean, Houston is a basketball. Yeah. I mean, I was telling you during the break like there's two sides of this low. Yeah. Yeah. We're talking Lakers. Like, hey. Great win. Awesome job. Lebron is activated. Our young guys played. Well last night. Let's keep building. We've got a nice little three games Nick next three games that are very very winnable against the pelicans away against. Yeah. We can win them all have slow four game winning streak to start this little last break season. That's the Lakers side of it. Because if you and I know Mike, I don't know if Mike I know you got your ties down there in Houston. I didn't pick up the Houston chronicle cruiser, the Houston, Chris gazette, Monica chronicle chronicle, I didn't pick up the chronicle because I know I mean, the people in Houston are saying the Lakers they stole that game from or foster fostered the rest stole that game from us where we're saying, hey, great game for the Lakers Houston saying, oh, we played a great game. We were up nineteen and the referee stole game. From the problem was you had time off with the all star and everybody talking about the last three weeks maybe last month on how James harden get away with anything. Remember the Lakers were remember the Lakers were in Houston putting their arms behind their backs. Then during the during the game gonna say pretty much taking a shot at the refs. So it's hard not to when you're a human your ref, and you come here. I don't know what the point was last on their minds the bad part of that last night. If you watched it late in the second half was it was too many makeup calls for the rockets. It was easy call for the Lakers, and then they would come back into a makeup call. It was just messy it it makes sense. James harden, actually, talked about Scott foster one of the referees last night and the rockets history with him Bush and oppose. Postseason. And was officiated in a couple of games, and is this lingering. And it's something that that's he looked for. Sure. Like, there's a it's a personal year for sure for sure person for sure, but I don't think you should be able to even officiator games anymore. H-honestly? No, no, not only talk about officials or anything. But I think just for him in particular like, he's he's different. I okay any truth to that? I'm sure Kirk can vouch to this having played in the NFL, and there referee's there and players develop relationships of sorts with the referees. There are some that you're going to like more than others. Whoa. We know going into a game by the coaching staff that I've been a part of my first couple years. I didn't those coaches didn't really do that. I had a couple of guys who are kind of old school nor Turner with my first coach art shell with another old school guy. But then I got like the younger generation got to lane kiffin, and I got to like Jack del Rio guys who were like guess what fellas today's Wednesday it's installed day. But I want to know who the officials were going to have this week. And we would have a sly that will come up on the big screen and a team meeting and say, hey, look, we've got this refereeing crew. And these are the. Synergise of what they call this season. Hey, look, I'm telling you defensive backs they've called the most passionate appearance calls this season. So DB's realized okay, we're not gonna be able to get away with this or this. They have a low percentage of holding call. So hey offense of line. You can you can probably get a little hole in there. But just like go don't make it to blatant. So it's just little things that you always wanna find it can give you an edge. Which is you know. And I said it's the same thing in baseball too. You know in baseball, you're like who we got up. Our who we got behind the plate tonight. And we got. Give me a day window stabbed or something. Like that. Not pull out when I was gonna say, that's a nice Pullman. But you're like, oh, he's got a scouting. He's got a small. Yeah. But he's got a small strike zone in the next day. You have another empire who's at the white strike zone. You know, what I mean in the NBA? I think James harden has San and it could be maybe officials because everybody's been complaining calc who's MS MS talked about it a lot of players have been talking about look with James harden. How do we defense this guy? If you aren't calling travels, if you aren't if you're letting him dictate and us to see LeBron James have the just the basketball since two now, you know, what just step in front of just stand in whose Mazzone right before that is way he took that charge. You gotta start taking charges. Now. I mean, look I guarantee that there are certain referees that don't like certain players or have sort of an acrimonious relationship with Syria. Tonight. Everybody involved is human Coronets part of human nature. It's part of work relationships. And this is alternately a work situation. Having said that hearing about a lack of referee love from James harden takes like five billion free Iranian his signature move is arguably a travel that he gets to like fifteen times a grenade name or hearing Chris Paul talk about his poor relationship with Scott fostering is like look I've talked to the league. I don't know what I can do about this. This is a guy who has beef with the entire league. Chris Paul gets along with nobody like Chris Paul complaining about somebody that no one can get along. With is like the height of irony. Are there's Canelo. Chris pollen was LeBron showed her on at sake. Chris Paul who is probably the dirtiest player in the league. Does. He Israel is really want reps calling these games. Like by the letter that guy would get tossed out of every game before the first quarter was over. Yeah. We knew that this is going to happen in a game. Like this like after all the players at all star break talking about James harden and the calls and and whatnot him getting away with so much. But I was I was looking up Scott foster today, and I guess in the LA times did a poll or sort of a study, right? Okay. Can you tell me what the results of that poll? They want to stay on. What we we got? We got some guests coming up. I want to make sure we douse teas that was that was keeping us on the clock. I at four thirty John bones. Jones is going to be joining us five. Fifteen Alden Gonzales covers the dodgers for. Yes. PIN? So we got got to keep the train's on the tracks and plus jewelry set this up nicely. Yes. If you want to hear the results of that study. So Donald show ESPN LA.

Go and i was like i guess i'll download it to relate to the youth and it was like you have to go to like the local like fuck and and i dunno pokemon center and mine was like a church like no this is some scientology shares trying to get you back to church she yeah yeah. Conscription is what's happening. I mean conscripted by the church and if that's the case then this man is the fucking pope because he was playing playing on eight different phones. Luckily though the driver he was not given a ticket because he wasn't technically moving. The car wasn't moving while he was using the phones but the state trooper was like tune. You gotta stop. You've got to put this in the back seat and move along the shoulder for emergencies urgency's on your on a highway and i've i've been on that highway. I think justice. I never been on a highway. It's it's a lot. It seems scary. There's a lot that's happening opening. I was on it recently. I think driving between the airport and tacoma washington and i had a russian driver who told me that he had had alcohol for the first time in two thousand twelve and now he goes to canada in buys cases of it so i like saw the origin of an alcoholic quick wow beautiful so beautiful next a new york couples luxurious vacation home in west palm beach florida. Only only in florida has been taken over by dozens of black vultures who are vomiting and defecating everywhere yeah. Did you think that's how that sentence would nope the palm beach post reports that the castle mono family i can't even visit their seven hundred and two thousand dollars vacation home that they purchased earlier this year in the ibis golf and country club law doc because there are vultures just everywhere apparently and the woman show van described the smell as so glad her name mishaan chaban cass amano yep that's so close to veronica mars character or as i pronounce it seal bon cast amino sure because that's how it spelt the woman said it smells like a thousand rotting corpses and that the vultures have destroyed their screen enclosures closures. They've overtaken the pool and the barbecue the few times the family has tried to visit <hes> they've had to park their car in the garage to avoid the birds pecking at them with their peaks to him the garage a neighbor says that the vultures tore through heard pool enclosure and they couldn't figure out how to get out the birds couldn't so the birds got it and they started freaking out she said imagine twenty vultures trapped biting each other and they can buy through bones they would bang against my windows running away from a bird that that was attacking them blood was everywhere. It was a vile vicious traumatic event and it was memorial day so no company i call it would come out to help me damn hum well. They did say this. This particular woman is a neighbor who has like <hes> who is ill. She has cancer and is like trapped. Vajpayee vulture god. This took a dark turn even worse. Apparently it's a third neighbor. Not the woman not the not the new york family and and not the not the lady. It's a third person who they claim is excessively feeding them. Oh my god stop. She said the neighbor has been giving them bags of dog food and even a roasted chicken which is you're giving birds. Bird do voters other birds probably but also dog food. What are you trying to do to these birds yeah. She's beefing them up. This is like a this is the pardon horror movie at the end when you realize like yeah. It's the fucking woman who's been feeding the rats. This is like a kathy bates character and also it's going to end by them turning on her but they'll all have a bit of her soul. <hes> <hes> the neighborhood sociation president said that they've warned the woman but they can't really do anything because vultures are migratory birds protected by federal law. Oh boy thanks things trump. This is all the government's fault they said the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission issued a warning to the neighbor but thus far she has ignored it and she won't respond to emails or phone calls people have suggested scaring the vultures off with fireworks fireworks are balloons a newspaper even quoted an expert saying that killing a vulture and having it stuffed in hanging in a prominent place would work because vultures avoid their own dead. The neighbor said that it's difficult to get a permit to kill hill protected bird local government at its finest vultures. Can i have a permit for that. Please <hes> just one. The woman said she even try putting out four fake owls that have moving heads and blinking lights but quote. The vultures chewed the owl. Well apart a rip. The heads off this is it's all funny until the birds come for all of us yeah. This is literally the alfred hitchcock. He knew he knew he knew and finally this. I'm just going to read the headline at the headline is sex. Pigs halt traffic back after a laser attack on pokemon teens know. What is this polka mom beat. We've got here today sex pigs so this is a story hey from. I think a swedish website so i think there might be some type of translation happening when they talk about sex pigs. I think they mean like pigs. Eggs like just like themes. Okay okay like i feel like a pig and sex. Culture is like you dirty little like a sex pig oh but they were wearing pig masks. I think literally i'm just okay so this is from the local sweden swedish news website so i wanna give them credit because i'm just gonna read the in sean. That's the name of the town in central sweden isn't known for pig mask wearing couples shooting lasers that pokemon egmont hunters before having sex by a water wheel but that could be about to change it was a friday night and the village of two thousand souls what if one person has multiple souls what if a couple people don't have souls what an ominous waste of words in writing i in the village of two thousand souls when two teenage siblings wandered out with their smartphones play pokemon go but instead of finding peak itchy you were skurdal. They soon came face to face in the park with a couple who must have seemed scarcely more real. They were rubber masks depicting pigs heads and they started screaming and waving a laser a laser beam hit. One of the teams in the face and the children rushed back home shaken but luckily unharmed all right. I leader being doesn't hit you in the face like a solid object. It's a beam of light. It's just like a pointer right. That's what they're talking. They're acting. They got beaten with like a bat yeah. They got a flashlight. A heavy flashlight shined on them and they ran norman told their mom in the next sentence they the mascot a shooters okay who also also t shirts labelled the king and queen were next spotted by incredulous motorists as had sex beside a hamlets water wheel wow. I don't know what that means. I bet i know what my halloween costumes going to be this year. I think it's a giant. What do you call that thing that like churns water wheel like a water wheel. Yeah i've seen senate in the beginning of hocus pocus. Yes house thackery gets into their house acharya yeah so basically these two like sex pigs were outside fucking each each other in a king and cream shirt happened to have laser these to these two kids come out to hunt for hokey mine stumble upon them gets slapped in the vase by a beam of light and then run back home to their mom but yeah the police officer was like pointing out someone with green laser can cause injury. If it hits the ice. This is what happens in sweden and it makes the news beautiful crimes. I beams of light will be banned in sweden within like a week but what about at the robin shows. I don't know how shall do it anyway. That's it for this. Week's whereas things i next we are diving into dating pet. Peeves saves dive deep dive deep doc deep deep tidy tidy tidy so so today we're talking about dating pet peeves obviously loyal listeners of the show slash anybody i've interacted with in the past six months knows that i have now thrown myself into to the abyss of the dating world. It's been awhile since we did a deep dive about anything dedicated to dating. I know we've covered dealbreakers breakers. We've covered dating apps but today i want to bitch actually about dating 'cause i've been in it now for bet and also so why this week wasn't a great one so we're going through and now i'm just gonna use unhappy our therapy which is basically what it spend spend the entire time but now we're just being explicit about it. The weird thing to me. This is going to be very stream of consciousness. I have stuff to talk about the weird thing to me. Is is the pattern that i usually follow. Is you match with someone on an app. You talk with them. If if you're if you like them like if you seem like all right maybe you move it to instagram or taxed. Instagram is particularly weird because then you'll follow one another or on any social media but then can you hear about them complaining about their dating life and it's like i'm right here. It's just weird. It's weird. It's like now. You're just an observer. They're like thoughts about how their dating life is going. So there are now people who i've matched with. They met that we follow each other on instagram and it's just a weird i a lot of the times i think you talk about dating you talk about other people and it really is is just a reflection of the person that's in it in what they're projecting so i say this all with the knowledge that you know i'm aware of that fact doc. My ipad teeth is i'm not really looking to date right now which i think the worst part is for me not being upfront about it if that's your intention from the beginning then fine if you're not ready to date say you got out of a relationship recently. It's like yeah. Maybe you wanna get out there and then you start going out with someone relaxed out ready for this right but but it's also a way to move on from someone is to like maybe you end up getting a crush on someone. You're not going to know that unless you go on a date or two right. I think the thing that i'm learning in general as has i've talked about before where it's like weird because i don't know sometimes. I'll go out with people and i'm like do they. Just wanna like oh. They've they've listened to the podcast or they've watched my stuff stuff in there like a fan and they want they just wanna like hang out but are are clear about that and then i go in thinking like oh. This is the date and air like we just want. I just want to hang out. I feel like the thing i'm learning. It's like i have to establish what is what we're both thinking as surly as possible and there you go yeah solution bats solution. We've learned we've lived. We've laughed and we've not left took maxed. I just i date small. Talk is exhausting to me. That's a major your pet peeve at just like just the fact that like there's so much god damn information that i have to extract from a person over like two drinks because apparently that's everyone's limit. I is drink way too fast for everybody is what i'm also learning if you put a fucking straw especially if it's a paper straw we only have twenty minutes before that straw doesn't exist anymore drink but yeah then then there are people who don't wanna get personal ad audits like we're just keeping it very topical. What is why don't even know what that conversation would be. Pop culture. Okay what what's your favorite fave movie. I the weird thing and this is another pet peeve about gay dating in particular. Is that like date. One is like so. Let's talk about our traumas. There was a tweet <hes> recently there was like it's pretty fucked that almost every state has at some point the co version of the conversation like so. Are your parents cool with you existing. It's like awesome yeah which is a yeah generally. I think the the the privilege thing about living in new york is that most people who are here are like okay. You've you've managed to here and are therefore like <hes> <hes>. I'm proud kind of thing. I guess so yeah. I guess that's what i mean but yeah i just. I don't know maybe like i've gotten too good at small talk that it's just like i can't. I just wanna get to the part where we were talking about real shit i can't i can't stand asking how many siblings everybody has. Let's just like i five minutes. Get that out siblings. Do your parents hate you. What was your first job. I don't know what people ask ask. This is a yeah. Each each sentence that i say in the steep dive is further proof that i'm the no man now next just the dance of figuring now aware to go on a date. I hey not a fan of experimental. I states. I don't wanna go fucking rollercoaster okay. I also just like who the onus is on. I don't know who responsibility it is to pick the place but every time they're like it's on me. I'm like why why is it my response the creative creative one you. You're isn't fun. Also they. All know you have a membership to soho house. That's where they really want to go and get a bird. I mean that is another item which is a weird status. Cues like unspoken references weird staff. That's like this this is this is my like status in the world's i mean i think it's particular to new york but yeah people i think they just like to name drop or or drop clues about their like connections in the gay world and it's just like yeah. I'm nothing i don't do it. I'm just saying i'm aware of and bring up harry styles on the first estate within the first five minutes not in the first five minutes brother <hes> he's more like my i dunno lover. He's also also my phone background so it does. It usually comes up when they're like that also ended eight there. Who is that. You don't know who that is right. You should know onsite yeah all right moving on yeah i mean i guess this is a personal preference but i feel like it's twenty nineteen. Were millennials. I value being able to hold a conversation via text. You know having a good back and forth. Via text is important <hes> gift usage. It's not too much not too little right right. An appropriate number of references memes perhaps <hes> a good mixture again this. This is not a replacement for in person interaction <hes> but you have to be good at that supplemental factor and i you know i carry the weight of of most conversations but that's just how iro next the whole aiko how. How long do you wait before messaging them after a date. I i hate bat thing just if you want to go on a date with them again just fucking message them right. I feel like it's like game theory. Yeah where it's like. The only reason that we're playing these games is because we're assuming that the other person is also playing them and if everyone was just honest it'd be so much easier. Wow there you go. There's the breakthrough in today's session right there. Oh yeah if i've learned anything in the last forty eight hours. It's that yeah i am i have adopted a policy of like <hes> <hes> radical upfrontness as early as possible probably a mistake but we'll roll with it until the next deep dive that we do about dating right unsafe everything. I'm saying today anyway. I will say in general the good thing about dating pet peeves as that the more you do it. The more you recognize you spot them earlier on and yeah. You know what you know what you're weeding out as mindy. My therapist likes to say it's all data data collection. We're just loading it all into a spreadsheet hitting sort and yeah which is true. We're all just numbers. Arse just wasn't zeros fallen down the matrix and then there oh he takes a pill and then we're in the dream and that's it for this week's deep dive next.

Yes yeah you've done so much written for a totally biased with former guests complainer w kamau bell he's he's so stared at two podcasts politically reacted with w kamov al and the blu brothers and has a netflix special warner relatives and end the documentary of the problem with up. Who just everything thank you i. I know we've talked doing this for a while so i'm glad it's finally happened. I i am you too so we start off by asking everybody. What is one thing you hate that. Everybody else loves shorts. I don't like shorts and i don't like short sleeved. Button-down serves yes but i can enjoy a t shirt but it just feels like i just feel for dickey's wearing especially i feel ridiculous wearing shorts and short sleeve button-down shirt seem so unnecessary as a product joh- naive wearing shorts i i would like to apologize to you and frankly the anybody else who sees me in shorts. What so i was told by when your producers before the show that you only recently started wearing shorts that true accurate when did not true. Is that true yeah that is actually true. I wore shorts all the time as a kid into <hes> yeah denim shorts oh yeah yeah denim shorts for sure <hes> denim cargo short yet did that to write that too with the loop where you would. I'd like to hang a hammer and yeah and then in college. I definitely wore shorts but i think it was. After i moved to new york. I don't know i just didn't see a lot of shorts and then i posted a picture at one point on instagram of me in shorts and someone asked if i was wearing skin colored entites oh jeez up because my legs were that pale geez. I was like fuck it. That's the last time i'm wearing shorts and <hes> but i have since embraced braced. I've embraced myself and so i'm yeah i just filled childish wearing them. It just makes me feel like a child and it's already hard enough when your job bob is stand up comedian and it's such a weird like a professional stand up comedian. Just sounds like you are yeah. That's not so like like the idea of wearing shorts just makes me feel so ridiculous. I just can look i. I i immediately transported back to being like like twelve again. Yeah it does sometimes. I'll like catch a catch a reflection of myself and yeah it is a little jar and yet uh-huh yeah. I accidentally recently performed insurance life really and yeah. There's nothing i think more upsetting to see than seeing like a standup person just for a long time talking to you insurance i agree. It just feels like wow you just could have been pulled off. The street think there was no effort. I want so it right yeah. I think i did a show at one of the improv. 's outside of l._a. There's <hes> on -tario you've ever yeah in oxnard is the other i like some really some really special places and <hes>. I didn't realize how long it would take to get there and i had to leave and it didn't have a chance to stop on my hotel so it's like. I guess i'm just performing when i'm wearing currently you didn't have like pants. It's in your suitcase or whatever it was. I already been there and i was like out for the day yeah running a time to go right yeah and i was staying in santa monica <hes> and it was like oh there's just no way didn't send someone to buy shorts by pants at the last minute and bringing it up like i just couldn't i couldn't do that. Cancel the show yeah. I probably oh you should have yeah. I mean i'm more okay with short-sleeved button-down shirt then shorts right. Did you have any other things you hate or. Was that <hes> yeah. I don't like batman or iron man. I know that we're going all over the place. That's fine now. We'd like to cover as many topics as possible. I just find those characters. It is really lame those two specifically yeah because they're just rich guys all like they don't have a superpower. They're just like rich guys. One paid for the suit and works with the u._s. Military in some way that iron man right and then the other one like works with the cops and is just a really rich guy with a car. It's just a really bizarre. It's not really a superpower. It seems very realistic to me right that some rich person will become vigilante and create technology to destroy that doesn't seem that far away. I don't like it yeah lame. It is i mean batman superpower whereas basically depression right right right depression and capitalism so he bought the biggest har- possible and an iron manage. Just heave feels like let's beyond their both republican. There's no doubt about that yeah. There's gonna believe in especially in investing in weapons and it's tricky yeah absolutely something they'd support like. I just can't like i don't know much about wayne industries. I just don't trust. I just feel like they're they're probably putting money the into coups and other countries. There's all sorts of stuff like. I would like to see what they're investing in. Yeah i wanna know his portfolio before i can fully support does bruce wayne character. No man okay so we've covered that i just wanna make sure i if there are any others i don't wanna i don't they wanna make you feel like you have to say more but i want you to say whatever now complaining about things is. I made a career out of it. What comedy is essentially lee is funding funny ways to complain about day to day things right. <hes> new york city new york city is complicated some from here yeah so i am from queens queen so i love it because it's home but like it's like but that's not i feel that's something new york. I live in yeah. I'm the new york of young professionals and people with dreams right and you know that's not like my friends from high school like a lot of most of them thought to say. They don't have dreams what they have kids n._j._i._t. New settled down. You know like whatever dreams they had at some point theralac. This is scary you know or or like i found someone to love of your foolishly avoided that as long as possible and so there is still a degree of i'm here for a reason i i want to succeed. I'm paying too much in rent. I'm just here so i can get a couple of stories to bring to my friends at home. At some point everybody in brooklyn meets quest loves somewhere where ya ya she just around. I feel like i've bumped into like eight different places in the last year and i don't know why they're always at its comedy comedy show. Oh is that this opening. He's ample hills getting ice cream true story at a house he everywhere but i feel like people pay like twenty twenty five hundred for a small studio in brooklyn so they can tell their friends back in omaha that they had ice cream with slow right. I relate. I feel like that's what i'm paying rent for you. So you grew up in <hes> where i grew up. <hes> throughout queens i grew grew up in jazz right. That's right and we just said that jackson heights floral park and jamaica right right your high school mascot is named after yes and how did that happen. I'm still jennifer now. I was in high school when it happened. That was the weird part like i was a senior in high school and there was a sophomore who really really he had like. He's like the only kid in the school. They had school spirit like that's not where our school was. It was like a nerd school. Everyone was was a public school and everyone was just worried about college and this could really cared cared about like the school and school spirit so he our mascot was the hawk but there was no physical mascot so he raised half the money and he found a business to match the funds ah-ha and then all of a sudden he was in this red hawk outfit like one monday morning. There's a red hawk like at the entrance and went to all the basketball games and he could name it whatever he wanted to name it and he named it after me because i was doing standup at the time that was cool and it just feels like that is jonas salk winter high school. He cured polio at that point. I hadn't even been on letterman like this is yeah salk. The hockey kind of rhymes is to like there is no you could give it a like a lab coat like it could be cute nothing. There's no reason to name it after me yeah but that's the way it's been then for twenty years. I guess i mean that is a big bird and i think <hes> or at least the pressure of it seems to be that you were trying to make a pun with bird bird and i was little i was. That's exactly that seems like yeah. You have to like what if you become like a serial killer or abbas point. Oh yeah i mean yeah. I mean they could just probably add an arnold weinstock solution and nobody really you know. I feel like we have founders day. Every year. More we go over the founding of the school and and we discuss like all the famous alums and stuff and like i'm a clue the aclu. Nobody really knows that it's named after me. Most people don't know y._m.'s. It's exactly it shouldn't be named after me. I'm treating the naming of the mascot as this is for life. It is a forever. It's a yeah it's something joan yeah. I do like to ask people about ah there. I stand ups about your worse bombs and you talked about a few of them. One of which you tweeted about was that <hes> pre you ever forget in bihar. When i got booed off the stage that would happen. It was an india right yeah. This was aetna. You were on a dance floor performing for young indian all that's a different bomb. Yeah okay yeah yeah a handful. Ah the one i was referencing was i was doing a tour of india state department. Obviously obama was president at the time i c. N. b. were in india and we're we're in bihar and allow the audience in the city of putnam did not speak english and it was a free show so they didn't understand. I don't think what i was saying being and i didn't understand what they were saying because they were heckling me in a language i did not speak but i i got the gist of it. I got the tone and i knew i had a cut my twenty minutes at short about like eight minutes or something. I'm like this is my best in your best interest for me to leave so that's what i thought you were referring to but the dance floor incidents vince incidents plural so i performed at the south there's a south asian american conference in the university of michigan's hold assad conference conference and they invited me to perform one year what i didn't know they asked me to perform on a dance floor because they were going to have like their south asian dance after and so all these kids dressed up in like gowns and nice suits and stuff excited to dance and i'm literally the only thing in their way me doing stand up on the dance floor was the thing that was like like in my way yeah and so i did the set it was okay. The sound around obviously wasn't good. It wasn't meant for performance. It's over with and find out late. I was doing an event with a nina delury. Who is <hes> the first ever indian-american miss america and nina had gone to college at michigan head seen me perform on that dance floor which was like so embarrassing uh-huh miss america saw me performing the dance floor and so i'm at this event <hes> years later with pri pera and needed lori and sitting on a stage and and i was performing. I'm like okay to not miss. American can see me perform again and there's a nice stage here but it was like a really big room far from the audience and like how is this gonna work work and they're like no no. You're not performing on the stage you performing on that dan floor closer to the audience and the next thing i'm performing on the dancefloor again. I bomb again in front of miss america nina devolutionary and pre berar who has seen it event since then. We don't make eye contact tech. I mean yeah. That's it's hard. It's hard when you have when you know the person that you're like okay. I might see this person and yeah she's i. I don't think she's ever see me perform not on a dance floor like i was. I want to tell most of my gigs are not on dance. Floors proper stages and is more more than zero is a pretty alarming. I mean the weird is i've been i mean that is performing onto dancers. Would i've been chased by bats twice at gigs gigs up my face. Just yes very these are weird statistics. I was at a high school the petty school and hides town new jersey. I was performing coming at us probably ten years ago and <hes> you know it was a friendly friend of the teacher there and it was a paid gig and i went there was a really fun. Show kids really smart all of a sudden sudden. This batch shows up and starts chasing me around and i was i was like what the base of 'em like. I went to public school. We have did you with this. Bestest bad like private school my ass and they were like that's just the bat that lives there and it's like that's not on normal all the feeder kids. That's just that bad that it's like okay and then i was in i think either in ottawa or kingston ontario -tario doing a show at a college and i was about to you know go on stage go backstage when when i saw a bat and i freaked out i'm like what oh i do and so i i went back into the dressing room and it's almost time for me to go on stage so i so i opened it and i sprinted towards the stage in the bat followed me all the way down the hall all star. Maybe stage rapid stop before i went onstage. Vascular imagine being chased down a hall by batman going onstage and pretending everything is normal right right right. I was not just chased by a bat right now for the second time <hes> but you you've also told jokes about getting heckled go to buy a procurer tracy morgan yeah <hes> what is the the brief synopsis of of that situation. I mean to be like like i say he heckled me. In my netflix special born your relatives still available but he honestly tracy just talks really loud now. It was at the comedy club the stand end <hes> and i was doing set and you know i i tend to yell a lot and passionate you know when i'm on stage in all of a sudden i here's someone in the back of the room going why g yellen so much he's like he's like the brown sam kennison wise lewis black in the special but it was actually sam kinison the browns sam kinison so much and you know i got off stage and it was tracy morgan and it was like holy shit like he just doesn't know how loud he is so after the show i'm outside and tracy comes out and he's like hey. Can i give you some advice and of course yes of course. I want that advice. It's like yo- you telling me that. I have a five minute bit that i don't have to write. I'll just say tell people what you said to me. Yeah and he's like <hes> too smart. These people aren't geniuses. They're not rocket scientists. You need to keep it simple then all of a sudden. I don't know why he decided to says elementary my dear watson. I love like he didn't need to look at you. Look look at what you look like. It's going to say look you which i knew what. I look like i'm like i think what he was trying to say is you. You look dorky. Oh you look professorial which i know and he's like if you walked out onstage and talked about lincoln girls asshole that would be hilarious. <hes> which is the advice i i never. I never quite followed <hes> but he but i did tell the story of him telling me that so in a way i kinda got the laugh off the idea exact tracy tracy so it does feel like i mean i feel like in comedy you kind of have to play into or at least acknowledged like audiences immediate perception of who you are or which i guess in some twisted way was his point but like this is a way for you to like like subvert that nobody you expect that coming from you <hes> and there's a reason for that because that's not what i do. It's not at all right but it's like yeah you know. If if you're sampling smart as you are small it also i think is funny because in his mind he had to be like think of an example of a thing and he could not imagine me either talking about or looking girls as the idea a of that seems so funny to him yeah yeah i guess hurry. Kinabalu would engage in anal lingus was beyond him. Have you end fair enough by follow up. Question was how often are you. Just you know face steep. Now i okay i wanna talk. We'll transition to our game game. We call and quotes elaborate which is <hes>. We found some tweets where you express. Your hatred took you to elaborate most. They're not. They're not <hes> they're all good stuff. This is sometimes you just know. I know somebody was popular in high school and it takes all your strength not instantly hate <hes> yeah i must have met somebody who is very attractive the handsome and charming and i i must have been very insecure at the moment ryan <hes> or maybe somebody <unk> said something the wrong way and that's all that too right there. Was something petty involved in that. I'm sure you know what i am. I'm a big fan of being petty ah to hold grudges. I like this. I think my like main weapon in for most of college was just passive aggression like the cold shoulder was my was my approach. Which is why. I only have a few friends that are who needs friends when you have all right now are heading to close to home <hes> but yeah. I don't know so. I feel you on that one. I think sometimes i meet someone and i'm like oh. I get your your this way because you were for homecoming king and ma good peak that early yeah i mean like i was well liked in high school and that way. I was popular not like popular opulent cool. I wasn't going to be home. We didn't have that but i wouldn't have been that yeah no. I don't think i was even well like if i'm being on. I was just such a nerd like like i wanted. I was a perfectionist <hes> yeah. I don't think it was endearing. Anybody yeah it. Maybe maybe it was just kind of like nerds thought they were cool. I just reeked of being not cool right right. I don't know so good for you. Yeah i guess i'm glad i'm glad you you were well like <hes>. Why did the worst men have to call each other. Bro attains the idea of brotherhood. Wow that's a tweet yeah. I i love the idea flexing. How are you brother like. There's something so beautiful in the idea of reaching out to someone and calling hauling them brother yeah i mean and whether to strangers on when you're close to like that's that's on the other and sister that saying despite the fact that we're not actually related. I feel that that level of closeness to you say idea of these bros. Taking over bro it's awful yeah. It's awful. I think you lets commit a hate. It crime bro like it just has. I think there's enough of a distinction between brow in brother though yeah but i mean bro does roll off the tongue a lot easier. I mean as we can't say bro like ryan burrow like has it gone like i wouldn't say it anyway but immediately yeah. It's not an option anymore. There's a the other term that gets to me his buddy body either something about what someone's like yeah. My buddy and i and it's like what i don't know. It just feels weird and i. I say buddy do a few people because they use buddy eddie. I i've been using it back. <hes> i remember marc. Maron called me buddy a few times when i was like probably in my early twenties gene never sat well. It always felt somewhat condescending whether he meant it that way. Okay buddy right buddy yeah ah there yeah there. Is that read that part of it. That's like it is almost like a placeholder. Were yes yeah <hes>. I don't know there's just it's something that's like what you call like a it's like the name of an infomercial product liberate you attached uh-huh child my buddy and me that oh yeah toy. I hate allowed parties. All my charm is neutralized that yeah my strength. I don't drink very much so my strength is being able to be in small groups of people where my wit might charm might my human decency right <hes> can <hes> can appear potentially dominated conversation yeah <hes> <hes> and everyone's happy when when it's allowed party with a lot of people and there's like drunken energy does nothing i can do like my strength is in like the things that come out of my mouth when people can actually listen to it once that's gone. What am i a guy that doesn't drink and that winds about things. I'm not amount yeah yeah. I was thinking about this because i think especially as a performer and you you know you sort of have like persona on onstage right that is maybe a little elevated and loud and like you know sure sure and then when yeah like if you go out with people they might expect that level of energy but you're at allowed place where it's like no actually real real. Me can't keep up with that. Oh and you're just going to not not like me and that. I've never really 'cause you. Just you can't have a deep conversation who can have a deep conversation. You know right while you're yelling like. I don't know i feel as if you 'thanasis should be legal. I feel like a two hundred people are living too long and why should they suffer. It's you can't yeah you're you're not able to really you know. I feel like that is not a hated in college. I hate it now. I feel like i'm in my oh. My god i'm elliot thirty thirty six is that mid thirties early thirties. I say mid thirty seven. What what's i think your mid until like thirty seven and a half yeah but maybe that you know that shows my my juvenile that i would even consider a half a half of even age to be a worthwhile worth discussing. I'm for it makes me feel like i'm slowing it down a little bit yeah i also. I'm a big proponent opponent of a half birthday at least thirty seven and a half years old. I wouldn't say that as my age but like today's my birthday like at wor sure yeah i am curious before before we wrap up because we didn't talk at all about the documentary but what is the most innocuous with pain opinion that you've had that you have gotten ship for. The most unoccupied is opinion. Oh <hes> there's been a few stuff stuff. I'm like shot like something like. I don't particularly like cats will flip out about that right ri- i mean i just feel like dogs or superior. I i am a hard agree from me. My brother has two cats and he tells me like if he would trade both them for a dog at any time. Yeah i mean like you know and i it feels weird weird for me to say because it doesn't sound like you can't racist or you have interest in castle. I've had you know i i have some friends who are cats yeah and if you good cats in my day <hes> and so there's that <hes> i made a comment once about how much i i hate the kids who took french in high school right like and that pissed a lot of people i guess that would be divisive considering the nature of the languages taken high school right. I just feel like it's so impractical. We live in like we. We have a huge spanish speaking population. We border with mexico way. Learn french jazz like well. You're gonna wanna paris. One day live in paris. You're going to see you're going to cameroon and translate. What are you. What are you doing. What are you using the french for. There's no practical use for french. Showy language they speak in canada and other neighbor these speaking montreal quebec in quebec i mean i don't know i am apollo like apologizing on behalf of these people joyce yeah quebec qua- people showing up but only speaking french spanish is the language of practicality <hes> you know. The french just feels like it's it's a showpiece language. Yeah i mean it's for show glacken speak french. It seems like <hes> like latin is one step appears in that briar. We took latin in high school but that was just for the s._a._t.'s really to impractical. I no intention of retaining latin canton right. Okay well before we let you go. Where can people find you end your work <hes> they can find me <hes> at hari kondabolu blue on twitter and <hes> instagram. I don't know why it was about to say facebook.

We're almost there at at the end of the show but first our chasers chasers are the good stuff that helps all the bad stuff. Go down easier starting with the t._v. We've been watching this week. Berry what you've been watching so. I haven't really been watching a lot of t._v. This week but there is a trailer for a netflix movie that is coming out and i have watched this trailer trailer. I think four times today already because i it just really speaks to me okay so it's called tall girl and it's just about a six foot tall high schooler and and i guess just how difficult life can be when you're six. I want to just point out. I am five nine and a half. If i've always been like a tall girl <hes> six feet isn't even like that crazy. It's like athletes yeah like models but not like mom but the whole movie is going to be about this this girl six foot tall high schooler and like like like the trailer. Has someone being like. How's the weather up there. I don't think legally we can play it for you here but please please just go to netflix instagram and watch the trailer. It's a great time <hes> so that's that's my t._v. That i'm watching this week. How 'bout you matt. I don't care about the play of really tall girl. I don't support bullying of talk <hes> i. I have been watching this week. It's not a technically a t._v. Show but i recently have been binging all of bone. Apetite heats videos on youtube. I've heard people talk about it on twitter before and i i didn't really know where to start. I'm still not sure if i started in the right place. Servants even what people are talking about but bone apetite does have a really great youtube presents and instagram. I'm assuming and they have a series on youtube called a ah gourmet makes and it's where a gourmet pastry chef named clair last name who attempts to make gourmet versions of snack for oh yeah. I've heard about this yeah. They're amazing and i love them and they're very like sweet and fine and easy to watch. Yes there are good mood boo booster even though they make me hungry i started from the very first episode which are shorter episodes but i think like i just got to the doritos episodes forty six minutes damn but it's just yeah g. She you know tastes whatever the whatever whatever the snack is and then attempts to recreate it and a gourmet way yeah often to disastrous results but <hes> yeah so. I'm very excited to to finish this particular bone petite series and then look at all of their other serious yeah. I think it's like the bone appetite test. Kitchen is the sort of setting and they have a whole bunch of shows that are filmed there. I got to check it out. What is your non t._v. Chaser so this is a follow up to a chase a couple couple weeks ago where i mentioned that i recently infused vodka with apricots from our c._f._o. Say which is the <hes> one of the more ridiculous sentences i've ever said but it's there it's true and i and i made a summer cocktail with my friend emily and with my boyfriend alex and it was like one of the best drinks i've had so just gonna tell you what it is you ready for this. We also good watermelon from the c._s._i. So we made watermelon juice and then we blended the watermelon juice with lime and honey and then we put in the apricot vodka <hes> <hes> and that's it and it was fucking delicious yeah so as watermelon juice honey lime apricot vodka autosound good. It was so good and we just had like one. You can barely taste that. It's alcohol because the apricot i will say one thing. I'm not good at is making cocktail. This is the for i it's probably the first cocktail of ever made and really emily made it but then i made it again <hes> and the first time we did did it without the apricot vodka. It was just regular vodka so really quite delicious and fun and made me happy a little tipsy. What's your chaser this week. I have a few well one was going to be baths but we talked about that which is related to my other one. Which is i mean. This is me being fancy but glad i had someone clean my apartment my god i've wanted that for so long. I only do it like twice a year but i don't love taking baths mostly mostly because my bathtub is gross right and so after it was cleaned. I was like all right l. Venture in so that's why that happened the weird thing i i use the service in new york <hes> and then of course. I was gonna tip this woman but she was like i'm done. Do you have a tip she lay it was like one sentence and i literally like didn't know what she was saying. I she had to repeat it three times but my hand was like in my pocket i was like yeah. It's just the most awkward thing i've ever experienced besides everything else so yeah i was just like i don't know i try to focus this week on like improving approving my the atmosphere of my apartment i got i got these bulbs for my lamps so i can change the lighting only. Does it go into different colors. I'm gonna have so much fun. Yeah i i've had like one or two of them before but never in my entire apartment and i like love them different different scenes that you can get like desert unlike spring blossom and the one thing that i was a little leery leery about was like i didn't think those bulbs could get light enough for me to be able to like actually see a reader things but like yeah they're actual light bulbs and they work as such approach so yeah a nice clean apartment but i could take a bath in and have nice lights in and most importantly a <hes> interview of harry styles and rolling stone came out this week. It's hitting newsstands september third. I think but yeah that cover shoot as really having to pick which which of those photos as my iphone background was pretty pretty tough. What did you land on.

It is f- issue week and we have. Jason leisure. The Palm Beach post sitting in studio with us once again. Thank you Jason for taking time out of your day to join us rock in with on Tuesday Thursday, it's what do we end today's really jumbled together for metering football season? What did we decide for Thursday's? I don't think we really have yet. We could go with thrusting with you. I'm not saying that I'm not saying no, don't. All right. We'll we'll go back to the lab. All right. I didn't say it with the right inflection like Christos. Now you want to try it again rock with you on a Thursday. Well, who's rocking with you? You gotta say, who's shipping container rock with you on a Thursday? Sound like nice. So some energy, you know? Yeah, it's you obviously cover the Miami Dolphins for the Palm Beach post and we'll get into whatever that was on Sunday. I saw your article and it was actually already rational. When you say saw my article. You mean like I didn't read seven forty five in the morning. I saw the headline avid reader there. I read it. I got some quotes from it. Okay. The dolphins are adequate. Wow, high praise that's highest for Jason. I mean, that is a compliment. So we'll get into Jason's article that I didn't even care to read right and the Miami Dolphins. But we start with Jimmy Butler. Watch fellas. There was news last night. They were mobile alerts happening. It was Mark Stein alerts. There were wo- JR alerts going. And the actual report that went on the internet was, I mean a bit of a laugher pretty one-sided glut watch Butler. You're shorting of Jimmy Butler. Okay. You gotta go back into the lab, Chris, you're on fire today. Now you gotta go back this. There's something there though by he's on the trail is just he's not far enough down the taking hacks. I love how Jason leisure likes you and ROY. I'm pretty sure he's pretty lukewarm on me, but we get along, but Billy, he absolutely hates you. There's no doubt about that. What's happening because here's the thing. Chris says, oh yeah, me and Jason went out the other day. And apparently he had coffee with ROY the other day and you and him or best friends always texting each other. Like what's going on. I feel like I've been nothing but nice to Jason. I feel like we're kindred spirits Bill, your adequate. I feel like we've hung out about the exact right amount of time which is you know, high and by when I come in here to do this, I don't disagree. I mean, I'm not a hangout type of guy to be honest with. I'm surprised that you are like I'm extremely friendly man. Contrary to everything that you guys have tried to put forward on this show. Like I, you know, like, do you have people in your neighborhood that run like, yeah, like I've run in my neighborhood and I'm like the guy like smiling and waving to everybody when I'm running around the neighborhood. I'm very friendly when I'm not one of those guys in my neighborhood. I don't have any of those guys. I feel like you do it ironically. No man. Jason actually covered the Miami Heat for a while before moving over to the Miami Dolphins. So we're going to start with Jimmy Butler the report from, whoa, JR. Was I always talking about loge man by the only thing I look for on these are Chang bums from Anthony Chang of the Miami Herald, how many Chang bombs have there been? Well, probably not any yet. Anthony's just getting started with the Miami Herald, but that's the guy you wanna follow for Miami. He's did. You just plug a competitor. It is I, I don't know if it's actually a competitor because you know, we we at the Palm Beach post, don't really think of the Miami Herald is competition yet. So the report was that it's Minnesota's preference to receive a huge unhappy named Chris, go ahead and say his his actual name. So the audience knows I will not utter it Assan Whiteside and Josh Richardson and a first round pick. Okay before Jimmy Butler and Jiang I thought you said before the show they wanted bam. Oh, yes. I'm sorry. Yeah, I'm sorry. I'm getting confused. Thank you for correcting me because I've actually talked to some people and the report was bam, j. rich and I for their bad contract and Jimmy Butler. And that's obviously not. What's happening, and we want him to have quit shopping when you when you were a kid, did you go to people's houses and enjoy playing with your friends toys because they were different than yours, things like that? Yeah. Can I can I play with some of the toys here in the studio, have a breaking news sounder that I can use. Yeah, go ahead and I hit the the ka Chung. Of. Got an Anthony Chang bomb, a Chang bomb. All right. Can we start calling things, Chang, bump, Chris, can you get that going? I've got Chang Baum in this Miami Herald article by Anthony Chang. He writes that ESPN's Adrian, whoa, generosity. Oh yeah. Really driven, what does that deal between the heat and timber? Wolves was not imminent. The two teams are very far apart right now. Eight Chang had at first though Jiang was the first to report Jiang was a first report. Chang Don was the breaking of the wo- dump road. The Timberwolves want a lot. Basically, Tom dibitetto wants a lot. Right. 'cause he's trying to keep trying to keep his job. Doesn't want to take a step back and that's understandable, but they, they're not speaking from a place of leverage. There are no other good offers out there. That's why you only really see the heat being reported. And I think the Miami Heat and no this. So from what I've heard is that the offers closer to Hugh Sean that be named and Justice Winslow what you see put out there by the Minnesota Timberwolves because really and you know this from your time covering Miami, very few things leak out of that building. Oh, man, they're airtight, and yeah, I found that the NFL is so different than that. And a lot of other NBA teams are so different than that. Am I the only one that's going to miss us on Whiteside done here? It seems like the rest of Miami is kind of done with this, but I'm, I'm gonna be sad to see him. Go. Oh, he does Billy is I was going to miss them, but now just 'cause Jason's on this side, I think I don't wanna be on this side like I think I want to be on the other side now. That's fine. Good. You're not exactly the ally that I want. I loved. I covered this on Whiteside when he started out. I loved that story. Man of this guy that came out of nowhere. This guy that originally tried out what the heat a few years earlier and guys like Batty a and LeBron or asking. I'm like, why are you laying down on the floor after sprints? But he kind of works his way back up. And then he's just like as bombastic as ever like Hassan Whiteside makes the climb from nobody to borderline star. That one season and his reaction is not like humble whatsoever. Not his reaction is like, this is everybody in the league's fault for not knowing how great I've been. This isn't like, I just became great today. I've been great for years and nobody realized it and the things he'd say were so bombastic like me to be remember. He'd score block and he'd be running down. The court pointed has Baynes. Yeah. Like what does that mean? What does it. And after games he'd be like, you know, I got more blocks than than Legoland, right that in your article or he'd always be mad at the officials are mad at Spoelstra. It only be upset at somebody and this is like two years ago. I mean, it probably sounds like something I'm describing from the recent season because so little has changed. But my favorite was there was a time where he was. He was always upset about being called for some what he felt was some phantom foul and he's like, there's no way I could have knocked that guy down unless I'm some kind of Djeddai master and I'm sitting there and we both kind of pause me and him both look at each other and just pause and looking at each other, and he gives it. He doesn't say it, but it gives me this look like, I, I know that wasn't the right word. Did I say the joke chrome? Yeah, you mess up the joke. He said he's a judo master. All right. I just did it. That's all right. He said he was at judo mass now. I get it and he looks at me and I'm like, this. He goes, I'm like assigned. Do you mean jet? I master and he goes, yeah, that's it right at that way. And your story. All right. It wasn't told great. I thought it was still funny. All right. It was funnier the first time when I told it. Yeah, off off air in the studio. Yeah. Well, I know a lot of people are frustrated with him, but this is why I like writing is because when I write something the wrong way, I can go back and delete it. Yeah, re put it the right way and but you don't get that man of, it's all good. It's all good. What's that? Harpo? There's a lot of pressure to be on the show like this are the biggest show in Miami and you guys are on at a time when people are already at work in not listening. Yeah, I, this is such an opportunity and I'm just I'm so nervous about blowing it and I just, I just did. Late nominees. This is a judgement free got in my head. No, no, no. I want to give you a hug, but I feel like you're not a big human coupling alverson that wouldn't help your fine you. You want to try it again from the beginning? I'd do it. Do it fix this post? No, no, no. Quite a bit, but you want to fix it for them. Not one one more shot to say it or we can actually start completely over. Okay. She I think container rock. And with you on a Thursday. I know a lot of people are frustrated with Hewison not be named, and he was very frustrating towards the tail in the last season, but that entire experiment has been a huge success for the reasons that Jason said, this was a guy that wasn't running in tryouts when he had an opportunity to make a LeBron James Miami Heat team, and he was chastised by Shane Batty. He was a guy that was let go by the Sacramento Kings. He was playing for the NBD l. and he was just a journeyman who's career never really got sorted. And now here he is max player and despite all that for that frustration that came at the end of last season. If he is a key part, maybe because it salary matches up. But if he is a key part in a deal that gets you a true sore, like Jimmy Butler, huge success for the Miami Heat, even if he isn't massive success. I think the deal is going to be closer to Hugh, shall not be named and Justice, but we have. What we have going on here is a culturally appropriate at standoff. One of those little fashion types, and there's no other team get in the mix except for maybe Sacramento. That's just there to take on bad contracts in return for assets doing the old Philadelphia model. All the pieces that I've heard mentioned in read about in these Chang bombs about the possible, Jimmy Butler trade, big picture. It's all really good for the heat. I mean, Justice Winslow was tenth overall, pick and in the NBA draft man. Once you get past five, six, seven, it's you don't know what you're getting anyway. And that tenth pick if you remember like they barely got it, they only got it because they lost our Brooklyn one or something, and they ended up getting to keep their pick and Charlotte, and some other teams made some very surprising picks headed them. So Winslow false them or Josh Richardson, for example, big picture. That's a second round second rounder? Yeah, Assan Whiteside big picture. That's a guy you just found somewhere. And so if you're going to parlay that into Jimmy Butler and a and a five. Year extension for Jimmy Butler s pretty good man. That's what you're looking for those guys to do. You bring up an excellent point, which Justice wins, because I know he is also one of these frustrating, Miami Heat players, and I don't think people really have the right perspective because they assume we'll he's a high traffic. Yeah, but in the NBA as Jay's head, if you have a player like Justice Winslow, who's going to have a long career in this league is a versatile defender. He does some other things outside of finishing at the hoop he can drive the lane. He can dish. He's a very good player. He's got to have a very long career. He's going to be a very solid role player for really good teams in this. Like that's assault. You nailed that dick in what is the NBA today? And people just point to tenth. And I think because Miami's an often picking that high, they point to him and he also felt this was a guy that was in to go maybe top five? Yeah. Yeah. Third or fourth people had high hopes. But again, if he's a part of a package that nets you Jimmy Butler, that's a tremendous win, Mendes win. I, I think he would rather see him go than Josh. Richardson, which is why you're seeing Josh Richardson's name being floated out there by what we presume is Minnesota. Because hell the article said, it's Minnesota's preference to get bam out of bio, Josh Richardson and I and unload that Jan contract. Was that in the wo-. JR bomb. That was in the Chengguan. Yeah, it was in the guy that typ watch Stein tweak. Okay, wait, I have him on. I don't have it. Chris warriors season is in thirteen days oaktown. Oh, we're on. We're on watch. Is this a thing? I was just trying to tease. I knew if I said Stein tweet, Mike, we get real excited. So she's trying to commercial breakers. No, just telling us this we're on, but watch again. Okay. You can't tease us that way. I saw my eyes though. I got you for Switzer Stein tweet. I was trying to figure that out because I thought I sent him to mobile alerts and the something slipped through the cracks. How many people do you have a mobile Lert for MBA. I have Schefter for NFL and for MBA I have Shams and I have, whoa, JR leisure. I don't have changed hangman and last night because sign is really on this Jimmy Butler watch. I added him to mobile alerts because I think my guess is he'll get it first Jason. Do you have anyone a mobile alerts? Yeah, ROY as again, boy, Kevin loved playing football. He lived in briefed. It wanted to go pro why he'd spent hours upon hours just practicing his touchdown dances at one day. Well, getting fitted for bifocals. He realized he was never much good at throwing or running or country, or even. Even kicking. Yeah, Gavin's chances of playing pro football. We're looking like fourth and long very long, but he did hear how DIKO could save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved. Then he did kind of touchdown dense, at least he was still good at that donlevatar. How'd you feel about that pretty good if you say so stugatz, what are you shaking your head about? Because I want to get out of here. The show with stugatz on the tickets FSU week, Miami hurricanes line. Did you see this went up to fourteen Miami hurricanes are favored by fourteen, which I believe is greater than the total difference between the two teams over the last four years, they've been separated by thirteen points over the last four years, and now the Miami hurricanes are favored by fourteen over a bad Florida state team that has a lot of athletes, but not very cohesive on either line shipping container rock Rockin with you and FSU week. I like it. I like it. Yeah, but we shouldn't use Rockin for Thursday's we. We need to find another another word before Thursday's. You still. Are you still managing man? This is called Micromax. We were trying to speak, Chris man. We were talking. His regular on creative self thumping with you on a Thursday. We go like that warmer like that better getting warmer, Virginia Wiki you guys ever have you. I know you're big UM fan. You've ever gone up to Tallahassee. Yeah, I won last year. You know, the Miami hurricanes. Haven't won this game this game and home since two thousand and four. That was the Brock Berlin overtime win. That was actually my first Miami FSU game that I had ever attended and we want it. It was in the obe- and since then I've been going to every home game in this series and I've been crushed every single time and recent years. It's been devastating, heartbreaking, fashion. I have gone to Tallahassee. I went to talahassee for the first time last year and we won that game. So I finally experienced my first win live since two thousand and four. So I'm hoping we can buck that trend because if they don't, they're season is certainly. Over, do you as a Miami fan? Do you have. Are you able to appreciate that the game day experience at FSU is cool. Like when the horse rides out and everything all their pageantry horses been atmosphere horses. Cool. Did you like are you able to like write a horses? The worst tradition in college football, throwing a spear at the the field get out of here FSU I can. I can say this having gone there now because I know what the knock is on the university of Miami, not really being a college atmosphere and not really sacking up to like the established programs out there way more fun, and it's much wilder at the rock in the parking lots there than it certainly is in Tallahassee that they won't. You wanna talk about a raucous happen. Fear. Nothing's Kuyper. Tallahassee does not stack up at all too hard rock in terms of game day atmosphere. Not at all. I mean, there aren't as many people as we did this last year. Dan, laughed at me and then Notre Dame came in here in Virginia. You the names again. The names again. Did you mean to say it the other way, or? I feel like they have frat houses and sorority house. Outside the stadium is a college. Paid as much for a hotel in Tallahassee when I was covering cultural as you would in like lower Manhattan. Yeah, it's insane. Yeah, it was. It was, yeah, it was ridiculous how it is. It's like, but it's not just it's like all up. The panhandle places in my throat is I don't know what's going on here. It's like places in Alabama, like all over the place. You don't get a hotel anywhere near Tallahassee. Okay. No, I understand. They're just sashes take your shot. They're they're, they're showing up to the game. It's just not. I thought it was this insane atmosphere like, oh, I'm not gonna leave here with my life. I went to the swamp when Tiba was there, and that was really impressive. Right. Was not impressed at all with the Tallahassee game day experience. It was a bad for to say team, maybe that played into it, but sacking up the two experiences I'd much rather if I'm visiting team right into Tallahassee tow Campbell them Hardrock hands down. That's easy. Easy. I think you're the only one that thinks it. Okay. I sound absurd, but I know people that work for US bien. Said outside of death valley in Louisiana that Miami Notre Dame experience was allowed to say is pretty good. So okay, I've been there call me liar, but that's just like one game picked out of like, no, Virginia Tech was out. I was saying this and when they have a roof that keeps the noise. Yeah. No, absolutely. I'm all here for the Hardrock stadium, slander pre roof and pre actually good football team, but it's a different venue. Now is what I'm saying is that's slandered. Just not delusion. No, you're right. It was absolutely worthy of the shade. It was thrown nationally before the roof before richt tricked, but not by you. It's a different place now and it's a different team now and hopefully they can throttle these guys. I'm not betting it because these games are always close. Even when there's a disparity in talent, Jason leisure, you cover the Miami Dolphins. I have to say that every time we're going to transition adults to to prove you're you're, you're bona fide. So the audience. Crushing crushing defeat at the hands of the New England, Patriots, the same loss. We've seen from this team for what feels like eternity. Your headline was very fair and just and rational when it came to this three and one Miami Dolphins seem to explain because that's all you care to explain hundred. The headlines, read it, Chris, you read it, right, I did. It was fair. And just he also said, this is a bridge season for the dolphins. Ooh, explain what was that? Not? Is that okay. I'm just quoting you. I'm not saying you're negative. I'm just quoting you bridge season. Is they like the Golden Gate Bridge or some flimsy, wooden bridge. Well, I don't know if we're in a. I don't know how to answer that. You don't like how I just take one America's infrastructure is crumbling. Okay. Is this a new bridge or is this a creaky old one that needs to be replaced? They're trying to get from the team that they inherited to the team that they wanna have. And Adam gates thinks you can do that in one year with the roster what it's gonna. It's gonna take a little. I, it's very rare that a team can do that hashtag bridge season. They had to unload a bunch of guys, man, you had to pay twenty two million dollars dead cap money to unload dominant suit. That's not part of the. That's not how you build. Really, you gotta tear down first and then start you gotta bridge, right? So in this, here's the thing like like they, it would have been very exciting for them. I think to go into New England and pull something off, but that trip is like on an itinerary. When you book the flight for that trip, it tells you get into Boston. Logan at seven dolphins get whipped at one the next day. You fly out at eight o'clock the next night. I mean, they never, they've lost. Ten straight years there and they always lose by a lot. They're not. I don't think they're season as much as they might talk about it sometimes and they always by the way, are comparing themselves to the patriots. They're always thinking of the patriots as what they aspire to. That's not who they're playing with. That's not the league that they're in this year. There's like five really great teams every year and unders about twenty after that. That are all okay. And whoever is the healthiest and pulls out a couple of one score games and maybe whoever starts three in one and has a little bit of a head start on some of those other teams are the teams that are going to finish ten and six and make the playoffs. And the dolphins have is good a chance to anybody else in that group. And I don't feel like that should be a bad thing to say about them. I think that that's only considered negative now because three and with three one score wins over teams that are probably not going to be in the playoffs that got everybody all amped up and got the expectations to an unreasonable level heading into New England game. I agree with everything that you're saying, thank you. So this is a bridge season at two. The team that they wanna be. I'm just unclear as to who they want to be. I think they want to be. It's, I think they they spire to be the patriot. We have a visitor, but they don't have the personnel for that yet. And it seems as though they're a long way away in terms of personnel, and that's gonna take several years. But in terms of identity, who do they want to be outside of fast. Well, that was the identity fast, fast away. My answer answering your question, you know, all right. They wanna be fast man. That's what they wanna do. They want to throw the ball bunch. They want to be fast. They have brought in as many fast guys as they can. So finesse team. Yeah, I think that's the goal. Yeah, definitely not that power ground and pound types. It wasn't New England faster. Was that the deal. New England's better. Can't pull a lot of that stuff off way too. You're convinced after a win over the dolphins, the patriots are fine. Everything's fine in New England. That's it because they beat the dolphins. Yeah. Well, no, that they're better than the dolphins. Okay. Yeah, I'm convinced after thirty eight seven that they're better than the dolphins but a but an elite team like all was fixed with that win over always think they're going to be that I do, but it start on four and you figure by the end of the year, they're going to be there taking down names last week of everybody was throwing dirt on the the patriots grave because you are ready to do it. I know Dan did it seven years ago in five Super Bowls ago, but, but I'm saying eventually it has to come to an end right eventually it has to come to an end eventually. But I mean, not this year find being surprised by whenever that happens because we always think that there's probably five or six years ago we thought that was going to happen. It's been a long time. Cameron wake. Have a good memory do. What did I say that got you in here of what it? What was there? Some. Is that go, wind, go head. That's all been here the whole time outside of the time, and I just didn't see him what come on. Forgot. Pretend does corner wearing the forty nine shirt FSU week like is wearing tattered Steve Young jersey from childhood did. I mean, I like it. I just don't understand. It's nice. It's a throwback. I don't understand why you're wearing it. Just like this jersey. Is now self conscious and embarrassed that Stu gods pointed out. I'll just narrate this. When did you buy that though? Because it's not from your childhood because it's an adult size I've bought this one is a big assumption there. No, it's it's. It's from somebody shouted. I bought this when I was in college. I want to say a freshman in college. Why Bill you feel like you just it last week or. I don't know when I first discovered EBay, he had a small like stint as jersey Mike, where everyday he was coming in with a different jersey and I feel like maybe this is from that rotate. No, no, this is this is I have photos of the ravens nine or Super Bowl where Iraq this. I can prove it. And this is why I discovered EBay, and then I just use it to buy a bunch of fake jerseys. We've all been there, right? No, we haven't bought a bunch of fake jerseys on EBay fallen for it. And then all of a sudden you realize that the heat color is not gold. It's yellow, like a canary yellow up in had. Are you ever embarrassed by Jersey's you head as a kid? Yeah, I'm embarrassed right now. I'm sort of embarrassed about my jersey. Mike stint Billy pulls. Yeah, I'm about to be a thirty three year old man. This isn't normal for a man to wear. It's weird for someone in their mid thirties, just decide, hey, I'm gonna start rocking jerseys to work. So people are running scams on EBay. That's what Eva is. Got me. Thinking explain how they do this again, Mike, what are the steps you just have to open up a shop and EBay sore and make that you have four and a half star credibility. It makes sure that on the news. It's like Ford. Ninety nine furnitures, don't don't put this under your real name or your show name or any of that guys. You or ninety nine per jersey and thirty nine ninety nine for shipping. That's that's the whole key. The whole deal. It's the shipping. Billy business plants Kobe today. Okay. Ninety ten split this broadcast is brought to you by the thirteen heavy machinery operators who Doug this radio stations foundation the fifty three ironworkers who the regard the twentieth cement workers before the floors, the twenty four lectures, ten elevator contractors, twenty three carpenters, nine plumbers, twenty Mason's twelve glaziers nineteen mechanical contractors and the hundreds of thousands of workers to maintain the nation's power grid and radio towers. Also, you can hear me say words like terms and conditions limited time or come see fresh trucks. Joe. Talkers and their doers. Timberland pro work. Apparel and footwear always do never done down lebatardshow. Now, what is happening with your wife? Divorce is happening. I took my wife truck to lacrosse practice last night. She said, listen, I'm low on gas, please fill it. Oh no, but a big of us, I'll just fill it up on the way back. Suddenly it's eight thirty pet's supposed to be over at eight. My daughter had homework and then night footballs about the start. Bingo. Stugatz I said, listen, you have more than enough gas to get the kids at school in the morning and get to a gas station to get gas and then come on. She said, be thing was reading. You have four miles of gas remaining, right? The school by the way is about fourteen miles away from the house. Oh no, I'm still not certain if she got the girls at school, I'm not certain if she got home. She called me at one point. Frank who's saying, what do I do when I run up gas? It says two miles ago. She could be surmounted walked to a gas station. These are show with stugatz on the ticket. It's the shipping container thumping with Yana Thursday. We got Jason. Leisure in studio. This is. This is exciting FSU week, Virginia Wiki? Yeah. I like it and it really the end, no look, we can build on dumping with you on a Thursday. And Billy nice little accent too it. It helped me energize me. Yeah, like a like a bird. Yes, loose or grandmother that fell in one of those fallen can't get up. We've talked a lot. It's already Thursday of FSU week, and we've talked a lot about what happened on angles week to Mike right angles. We always talk about Cincinnati week down here. Now they don't. We haven't talked at all about Cincinnati and we will in a second. But first we want to do a new segment, which in leisure. Really? Yeah. Oh, noted. Funny, man, ROY hit it. To take your phone bone, Jason Shire's joke of the day. What? What is this? You have to tell Joe? I just tell you have to tell a joke to us all right audience because you heard this wacky guy. It's actually when ROY and I hang out. We just tell each other little jokes like this and just giggle for say like everyone he hangs out with everybody. You guys should have a joke battle. Yeah. And why the evolution of this should be just you and ROY telling each other jokes. I like that idea. Do you want me to tell the joke for this? What do Alexander the great and Winnie the Pooh have in common. I'm stumped the same middle name. Oh, good segment. Thanks one that you'll killed. Did. ROY. Did you like it. Was okay type race. At all. We have for joke today. I'm tempted to do another one since ROY was. I mean. Jason, Jason, both to talk to Jason. Bring the Pete back. Mike, I bought the source yesterday. Oh, you did? Yeah, not a very good one though. Not only is this. The source terrible. It's also terrible. Landed that one that was great, ROY. Is fine. Never heard that one. Actually, ROY rolling back. Side-splitting humor from Jason Lee take for ROY when he says it's. Now that was it. We'll more you get one more. All right. Bring the Pete bag. You know, what elephants are Mike? Have you heard of elephants? Are you familiar with elephants. That's a good callback, right? You know why you never see elephants hiding in a tree. Why? Because they're really good at it. Way. Right, right, right. Right. When you call them down when you call them down, please come to the mic. I, I gotta get some feedback on. I'm on firemen. All right. We're onto Cincinnati. This is ROY of jokes, wasn't there's going to be a bad or not. That's going to be next at all. I mean, although I don't think that that's like needs any improvement. I gotta be honest with you. I'm looking at ROY screen and I see jokes on that score really think he's ready, not. Nah, I got review these jokes. No, that's actually out at the club. I sit next to ROY every day and he always has tab opened the jokes, always this poor for the course when it comes to ROY. So we're on a Cincinnati, isn't any people to write his jokes man. What do we expect on Sunday for the Miami Dolphins coming off of a throttling at the hands of New England, typically in the NFL I, if you're any sort of good and you have one of these performances like the dolphins head on Sunday, you tend to bounce back and certainly not play as poorly as you did. Is that what you expect going into Cincinnati? I think they'll play better because since he's not as good as New England, but Cincinnati's just like them. Did you realize by the way this is a battle of division leaders right now at both on top of their, they're both three and one. So they're both in the same boat. They're both in that group of like a dozen to twenty teams that are all just okay. And maybe if things go their way, they get ten wins. They get in Cincinnati, might end up being one of the teams. Yeah, I think we locked in with as for when when they get into that wild card race late in the season, we dubbed these matchups we were struggling to find an aim of for it because Miami Tennessee kind of felt that way. And these are Spiderman mean games. Okay. All right. This is one of those. I can see that. Hello. What happened? Why did the golfer where two pairs of pants? Why? ROY case you get a hold on one. That was okay. Wow, high praise, high praise. I enjoyed that. Jason on a pant, like in the on the panic meter from zero to ten, we're doing panic meter and we. This is about a specific issue offense align losing sitting and Kilgore is like, are we going to be? Okay, why is that? Why Drake has disappeared? That's going to be one of the problems man. When you rebuild your whole offensive line around Josh Sitton, and you lose him the first week, Chris, that would be bed. Awesome. Nice. Well, we, I sure the said yesterday on the air Kenyan Drake is still doing really well after contact. He's tops in average after contact, I think around four and a half yards. And this was he was tops in the league in this stat towards the tail in the last year when he assumed the job, he was like the number one fantasy back the last month of the season, and he's been really bad from a production standpoint, even worse from fantasy production standpoint. What's going on here? Because even if you have a bad line, wouldn't you want to use his skill set as a guy who can shed tackles and is a bit more versatile than Frank or is pass catcher, bubble screen, type guy, any of those kinds of things. And the biggest problem to me with Kenyan Drake is that he just not getting the ball enough McKinnon and part of that is I think when you have all these guys that they've brought in their whole thing is we don't just have three receivers anymore. We have this whole group of they've got four receivers. Have played a lot plus devante Parker, assuming that he's going to be back. Okay, healthy. Can we also have Mike is sick receiving tight end. They've got Frank gore and Kenyan Drake, they've got all these different guys, and I think there becomes this thing of it's almost like the opposite of what they did last year lesser. They're locked into using the same three guys. Now they're locked into, let's make sure we're always using everybody and getting everybody involved. Whereas Kenyan Drake might be worth getting the ball more than ten times a game between passes and runs. He's he's gotten the ball about ten or eleven times a game. And eventually at some point you got to figure out who are the best guys and they've got to get a bigger share of the ball. You mentioned devante Parker the hell, man. What's going on here? Domon Pirker walked through the locker room yesterday and he was wearing a stepbrothers t shirt. I haven't no respect for devante Parker. I did too. That's why I brought it up. It kind of gave me a hope of like, this is going to be all right. He's going to be alright. Down on now Billy, I didn't come on the show to listen to you. Men. They brought me on here to talk. Devante Parker helps you. People are down on devante Parker because he he's a first round. Pick who hasn't played like a first round pick. But devante Parker is six, three, two hundred something he's fast. He's a leaper. I mean, he can make plays for you when he's out there. He's not a number one receiver, but it helps you to have him healthy and on the field. He's not. And so if I'm a dolphin fan, I should relinquish the hope of him ever being one. I think we're past that. I mean the the problem is if you're a dolphin fan, he might still be that. But somewhere else realize how things always seem to go or just looking at the group of wide receivers that you have taken the tight end and of the equation. Training him as a China, not true receiver, even though I know that's not the NFL. You have a bunch of little guys and you have this one big bodied guy. I feel like you could use that even if he doesn't have. A blazing speed, even if he's been slowed by injuries, he can limit the margin of error. Well, you can increase margin very for you when you have a quarterback. That's not the most accurate on deep bowls, right? He's got a skill set and it's just I rating when you haven't had him out there on a consistent basis. Oh, definitely. And these injuries I don't wanna get into this is dangerous. But when you read just a blurb in a newspaper use injuries, don't seem all that serious. They see more nagging is this one of those things that they don't wanna put them out there that he can't that he is. So when when he's not one hundred percent, he's not close to the player he can be, and so they'd rather not risk it. Well, that's been part of the issue. Mike is not only because when you look at his actual games, if you look back to his rookie year, I think he played fifteen games this year is not as it's not totally defined by how many games he's missed. It's the fact that when he's hurt when he's banged up but could play, it's not an, it's not a toughness itch issue. It's an effective nece issue if he's hurt, if he's got a hamstring problem or a quadriceps problem like they're dealing with now, you can't count on him going out there and really playing through it and being affective through it. Right? And but some of these injuries have not been. I mean, the one that derailed him to start the season. He got his finger caught in somebody's shoulder pads and broke his finger in the middle of August. That's not. I mean, it's like, how do you get of his own way? It just seems like these are the types of things that happen to devante Parker doesn't wanna be hurt, wants to play, and they want to play him in use him that game. I think the one game he played against Oakland and he had two catches for forty yards. He had a long like thirty six yard catch down the right side. I believe it was. That's a good game for him with this offense. If everything else is going, if you've got Drake and Wilson and grant and stills and all those guys going and devante Parker chips in with one long catcher to catch it for forty yards. That's fine, right. I find that often I guess first round pick material, but the dolphins will take correct me if I'm wrong though. Chris, the frustration is when those other. Guys don't have it going, and we just saw a game where nobody had it going. You'd like devante Parker to step up and be the one that has something going for you. And he just hasn't been that guy. I followed Anthony Chang and I haven't received one Chang bomb. I sent him to alerts. I even had even haven't had repurpose somebody else's comment man. Dan's been in here the entire time, but now he's gonna talk forty, seven minutes into the first hour. You guys have finally given me some room to say something here. We're geeking. It's FSU. We. Everyone has to get out of the way I just wanted to come in and make fun of how you told that jeopardise story the judo Jeddah. I know you. Well, when you were sitting really big too. You didn't say anything, but I saw you snickering over there. But silently because I didn't want to embarrass you Dan, I think you're more of an insider than Anthony Chang, no fence. I know he's your valuable d do you? Does it do anything for you that I told it very well over there behind the glass before the show or no, you know what doesn't really count. I was hoping you guys would just make these in practice all the time. Then start over. I was hoping you guys would go back and just try to God knows I was. It's a good story. It's a good story, right? Very poorly told that's you can come to the Palm Beach post for great stories. Writer. I loved. I loved you riffing on the idea that this is why writing is so much better and easier because I hope back in fixing right now, I can't fix this. Give me some Jimmy Butler news dammit. I mean, they really want him. They, he's better skin, Dan. Yeah, yeah. Well, I'm asking somebody that knows that they really want him but not enough to give up everything in their youth and you know how they do things over there. Right? It's not one guy. It's five guys making these decisions. It's not one I know many of you think it's Riley and if he has to step in at the end. And there haven't been a lot of instances in the history of the team where he's had to do that, but Micky Arison got the final say on everything on everything. It's his final, say, Mickey, Nick, Andy Riley and SPO the five of them. Don't necessarily have to agree on this so there can be discussions with internally about, do we give up a young player that we don't want to give up and that part is playing out. Now I'm telling you that Winslow and waiters and Whiteside those guys that they would like to play with. You know that they would like to it in this value game oser. Those are there. Those are those pieces. It doesn't seem like enough. It seemed like Minnesota would want more than that put play with, but not enter a season and actually play with that's play with. They don't wanna play with like, when's I shouldn't say that about Winslow because they really value his defensive metrics there off the charts. Like if you look at his advanced metrics winslow's in exceptional defensive player. But what I'm saying is the fi- it's hard to get five people in this room to agree on anything. So now imagine five people agreeing they, they have to navigate what they're willing to give up for Jimmy Butler at a time when not a lot of offers or other are out there, and not a lot of other teams can compete with. If you're just sitting in the news at Aegean world turnaround ski reported last night is that it was Minnesota's preference. So right off the bat, we know where this news is coming from. You don't have to be an insider to figure that out. It's Minnesota's preference, bam, out of bio, Josh Richardson and a first round pick for Jimmy Butler and Jiang, which is really bad contract on their books and. That you just have to plug that into ESPN straight machine to know that on the surface, a team trae like that is not going to work, and yet it might be their preference Tibbs as preference, but it shouldn't simply not going to happen. There don't seem to be other teams in this game outside of Miami. Miami's the only serious name that you're hearing out there, but it's old players versus young players and it's win now with Riley and fibs. Both of them are wind right now running right now. I'm not waiting another minute and they've got their own issues in their front office where the owner and the coach don't agree on stuff. And what I'm telling you as it comes to this stuff, the Miami Heat, you always see them in public United, and I'm not saying they're not United on this one. I'm just telling you that their preferences are obvious to all of us. You know the guys that they'd be willing to part with, and that's not enough. This is this is the Pat Riley that I think that was all coach for saying Whiteside. This is this is the Pat Riley that he fans idolize because it wasn't just not even two weeks ago where you told me the plan was twenty twenty one, right? The plan was twenty twenty. The plan was twenty. One decade a with the big players are coming out twenty twenty one. There's one or two that it always changes. Mike. Like I remember this team was not in on Maxine Whiteside and then it was like it chain. And that was like within two weeks that was within two weeks. They were not in on Maxine white. They did not think he was a max player and then he was so this, this is gonna come down to if Jimmy Butler's going to be on the Miami Heat. Do you see a scenario in which they get bullied by Taylor and Tibbs and actually blink first because I don't think that's going to happen. I haven't actually had these conversations, but what I'd be curious about is what's happening with Micky Arison and Pat Riley specifically as it relates to do, we go with Jimmy Butler for one year at this age old instead of younger players. What is Mickey leaving? Nick Arison is leaving him bam, Josh, or is he leaving. Him old players that's to me the tension that you're presently looking at. Thank you, Jason.

No one knew where the storm was heading but there was a chance it could could hit the mainland. If it did Henry's farm on the shores of Lake Okeechobee could be endanger. The massive body of water was is prone to floods but he didn't pay the storm warning much mind Henry and his family had toughed it out through many storms before and they could do it again. At least that's what he thought. Five thousand miles away. A wave of super heated air blasted off from the hot Saharan Desert in Africa. The breeze blew westward. Across the warm ocean waters moisture began to rapidly evaporate as the air pressure dropped the beginnings innings of a tropical depression and it was gaining power fast. Soon it would make its way across the Ocean to Florida Henry Martin and and the other residents of Belle glade had no idea that in just four days time their lives would be forever changed and their town would would be completely destroyed.

It was one of the deadliest storms ever recorded in the North Atlantic basin causing widespread damage economic loss and countless deaths. Across south Florida and the Caribbean. This week will explore the region around Lake Okeechobee. And Track the hurricane from its origin in the Atlantic. All the way to its unexpected arrival on the Florida coast. Next week. We'll stick with the hurricane as it surprises. The townspeople of Belle glade will follow along as a resident struggle to survive and examine the complexities. He's and hardships faced in the aftermath of the disaster. Henry Martin was was a Tall well-built man with deeply lined face as a native of Fort. Meade Florida he was an expert on best farming practices in the region and how to manage flood ridden fields in one thousand nine hundred nineteen when Henry was thirty three. He made the approximately eighty mile journey from fort. Meade need to visit his brother near Lake Okeechobee. When he arrived at the lake? Henry couldn't believe his eyes. If he didn't know it was landlocked act. He might have believed it was an ocean named by the native seminole people. Okeechobee means the big water and big water. It was around seven hundred thirty square miles in size lake. Okeechobee is the seventh largest freshwater lake in the United States. It's so big big that it can easily be seen from space. It's also extremely shallow. Averaging about nine feet deep this means that during heavy rains the lake tends to overflow and flood the surrounding low lying fields just like the hurricanes in the sky above. It's hard to predict where the waters of Okeechobee be will flow next. But when the flooding recedes it leaves behind a rich blackened field of soil when Henry Martin saw this enriched the earth back in one thousand nine hundred nineteen he could practically feel the dollar bills filling pocket. He knew if he moved his family to lake. Okeechobee he'd be hitting literal a pay dirt. Two years later he bought some land and got things settled for the rest of his family. While Henry Henry was a family man through and through he was a Gambler at heart and the move to Okeechobee. Was the biggest wager of his life blinded the potential windfall. He didn't consider the disadvantages of farming near such an unpredictable body of water he'd be at the mercy of tropical call storms and their accompanying floods. This oversight would prove fatal when one of the deadliest hurricanes of all time came swinging. Right right into Henry's backyard but for the moment the future was looking bright by by nineteen. twenty-three Henry's new farm was established and the rest of his family was ready to join him. Henry's wife Bessie. Mae was used to her husband. Getting excited cited about his business endeavors. But she wasn't so sure about the move as they headed towards their new home they cram themselves into a boat to cross crossed. Lake looking out over the comb. Shallow Waters Bessie may felt a pit in her stomach. Something about the vast lake meter nervous bruce but she tried to shake the feeling as they arrived at their still supported farmhouse most of the properties around the lake were built on stilts because of the periodic flooding flooding. Bessie Mae was Florida born and raised. She was familiar with the area heavy rains and flooding and she'd always believe that building houses so close close to the lake. Seemed to be tempting fate. Putting houses on stilts wasn't the only safety precaution against flooding a dyke or earthen barrier was built around the lakes edge rising a few feet above the shore. The dike would keep. The House is safe. If the water level raised in case the lake did overflow a a new system of irrigation pumps worked around the clock to pump water out of the field and yet bessie May. Martin still wasn't convinced their new house house would be safe however she loved her husband and she didn't WanNa Dash Henry Dreams. What's more the kids? Were all excited about the move except Zip for seven-year-old Valve Martin who had a terrible fear of water. According to her father Henry hard work honor and faith or the three three most important traits. A person could exhibit. He wasn't going to let anything. Not even some flooding stop him from achieving success. There was no time to think think about potential dangers. He had a business to run and the harvest was fast approaching but even with his family helping. Winging Henry needed more workers he found them in. The form of Caribbean migrants. Like many of the people who came to America the workers were in search of a better life but that was easier said than done while Henry Martin treated his workers with respect and gave them decent pay. He was the exception to the norm. Most of the time non white migrants were forced to work for meager wages and had to live in squalid conditions in nineteen gene twenty. Three Florida was highly segregated. Memories from the civil war still lingered and racial tension was rife in lake. Okeechobee whites slid in the quality housing in the nice section of town while black people and other minorities were relegated to living an isolated shantytowns. These poorly built homes wouldn't stand a chance in the face of a powerful storm but the people living in them didn't have the luxury of planning for the future they had to worry about what's simply getting through each day for a while. They were able to get by without any major issues. When the rains got heavy the dike was able to keep the lake from overflowing overflowing that false sense of security brought even more people down to Lake Okeechobee? Fertile shores throughout the early nineteen twenties. Money's people flocked from the north to seek their fortunes in the sunshine state the warm weather easygoing lifestyle and financial opportunities were extremely dreamily attractive. To people looking for a new start new towns farms and building projects were popping up throughout Florida. The rich fertile soil surrounding rounding Lake Okeechobee was a huge draw to farmers like Henry Martin soon a bustling economy had sprouted all along the lake shores and all that stood between the city and destruction was a modest earthen dike and before too long it would face. Its first real test coming up defenses around Lake Okeechobee. Get put through their paces now. Back to the story. Despite the danger posed by storms and flooding Florida's new towns were booming in the nineteen twenties with some of the most fertile land in the state people were descending on Lake Okeechobee to build farms and seek their fortunes among them was Florida native. Henry Martin whose family had arrived in Lake Okeechobee. In one thousand nine hundred twenty three the Martin's land occupied stretch between the lakes southern shore in the Florida everglades. It was full of rich soil. Ripe for planting and Ripe for Disaster Astor in September nineteen twenty six a category four hurricane barreled through Miami surprising. It's unprepared residents with the winds at a minimum of one hundred thirty miles per hour. It's hard to imagine how such a powerful storm could have arrived so unexpectedly expectedly but at the time there wasn't much in the way of weather tracking technology most storm reports were based on I witness accounts alone for the nineteen twenty-six Hurricane. Miami based forecaster. Richard Gray predicted the fast. Moving storm would sidestep Florida believing they were safe. People Walk Ready. When the hurricane hit the city? The destruction in Miami was catastrophic. Entire buildings were destroyed. Three hundred seventy two. Who lives were lost with another eight hundred? Eleven reported missing over forty. Three thousand people were left homeless and hopeless. The damage was even worse up the coast along Lake Okeechobee. As the hurricane hurled up the Florida peninsula powerful winds blew in all directions actions heavy rain pounded the ground and the dike surrounding the lake broke sending floodwaters surging into town. Although the storm caused just a lot of damage to his fields Henry Martin's property wasn't permanently ruined. Luckily the wind direction had kept most of the water away from his land but his neighbors weren't so lucky many of them were killed in the floods. It was a dramatic wakeup call for the new residents who had moved there for fresh opportunities after this disaster the Florida Land Boom essentially halted in its tracks. Many newcomers weren't going to put up with another destructive storm arm. They packed up their belongings and left. Banks were bled dry. Local businesses were crippled. Entire towns were abandoned building. Projects projects were halted mid-construction leaving unfinished structures. Dotting the Florida landscape and yet yet for the people who remained nothing was done to prevent the same thing from happening again at the time. Most people believed that a storm. That outsized couldn't possibly hit the same area twice. Those who stayed by lake. Okeechobee were certain that they had already endured the worst mother. Nature could throw at them and for some like Henry Martin. The worst wasn't even that bad. His fields had been partially flooded but thanks to new pumping technology analogy it was easy enough to restore his land. He was optimistic. That if another large storm hit the area the pumps would save them again but his wife Vessey may disagreed. bessie knew that the Martin clan had gotten off lucky. But this would happen again and when it did she didn't WanNA WANNA be there to face it. Henry reassured his wife and children that it was all going to be fine. A bigger stronger dike was being built to protect them. It would the unimposing five foot high fifty mile long wall of muck. This dike would not break Henry. Martin was sure of IT Henry. He was so confident that he doubled down on his business ventures. He bought a tractor to help so the fields. He opened up two dry goods stores and he invested more more time and money into the burgeoning community around him by nineteen twenty eight just two years. After the hurricane the area was rejuvenated. New Roads from West Palm Beach brought more people to the lake. Electricity and telephone lines were installed. The devastation of the storm was nothing more. been an unpleasant memory with so many new residents the area around South Lake Okeechobee. Grown enough to become its own town under the stewardship stewardship of everglades local Walter greer the town of Belle glade. Florida was incorporated on April tenth. Nineteen Twenty eight by September over bill. GLADE was a hub of activity. Besides Henry Martin's two stores. There were two bustling hotels a gas station and plenty of houses. Shacks and neatly ploughed fields. Soon all of it would be underwater. After the Nineteen Twenty six hurricane. People like Henry Martin were certain. Such a powerful storm wouldn't hit the region again and many of the newest residents hadn't hadn't experienced a hurricane at all but had they known more about Florida's geography. They might have been more apprehensive jutting out from the mainland land. The Florida peninsula is uniquely situated between the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Because of that it's extra susceptible the dangerous weather hot winds swift ocean currents and warm jet streams all contribute to putting the area in the direct path of powerful full storms having lived in the area for hundreds of years Lake Okeechobee. Seminole people were all too familiar with the dangers. Hurricanes posed just when the warning signals went up in nineteen twenty eight. They were the only ones to evacuate the area. The people who elected to stay had too much faith in the power our their own community for many of them Lake Okeechobee had provided so much it was something to be loved not feared but on September eighth eighth one thousand nine hundred ninety eight the source of Belle glades prosperity would become the agent of its downfall that day an arid wind from the Sahara desert blue over the Atlantic Ocean. The heat caused the air pressure to drop drawing moisture from the Roiling Seas. The rapidly forming forming clouds rose high into the atmosphere twisting in a vicious circle from the howling wind pushed westward by the unceasing jetstream. This this was more than a mere tropical storm. It was hurricane still feeding often ocean of warm water and and it was very hungry. The first report of the storm came on September tenth from sailors on the S S. commack still nine hundred good miles from the Caribbean. The storm was still a ways off but that just gave it more time to grow enforce as dawn approached on September twelfth the islands of Dominika and Guadeloupe became the first victims of the hurricanes wrath. The storm showed no mercy. Seawalls were smashed buildings and crops were destroyed. The islanders did everything they could to survive. But at this point the hurricane was category three meaning its winds were between one hundred eleven and one hundred twenty nine miles per hour and for the sailors out at sea. There was nowhere to take shelter alter in the waters near the Virgin Islands. The S S mature was struggling to stay afloat. Captain Richard Horrid fought through the high cresting waves simpson heavy rainfall hodge had never experienced such high waves. Water crashed over the bow until the ship broke through the clouds into the bright sunlight. The C. still swelled but the air was calm. The S S mature had entered the eye of the storm. This was only a temporary reprieve. The barometric pressure was twenty. Seven point five zero normally. It should have been somewhere around thirty. It may seem like a small difference but it was the lowest air pressure reading Captain Horace had ever seen. This was one of the most powerful hurricanes in recorded history and there was nothing the SS mature could do but write it out. The the ship crashed through the wall of the storm rolling hard through each wave. Somehow it didn't sink but just because the hurricane ahead spared the matura that didn't mean it was done claiming victims after passing the Virgin Islands. The storm turned west-northwestward. It was headed for Puerto Rico inching ever closer to the US border after this. The hurricane makes landfall in Puerto Rico and then turns its fury on Florida now. Back to the story September Thirteenth Nineteen Gene. Twenty eight was supposed to be a special day in Puerto Rico. It was the Feast Day of Saint Philippi but for eighteen long hours. The I learned was caught in the throes of a hurricane during that time the storm caused unthinkable damage. Hurricane Historian J Barnes. It gives an anecdote about the terror faced in Puerto Rico quote. Many deaths were caused by zinc roofs. Flying through the air like sites San Dan was hurled from the beaches. Blinded people's eyes lightning crashed constantly and there was the continual roar of thunder in the crash of fallen debris in the initial storm. Three hundred twelve lives were reported lost but many more possibly thousands died lied in the ensuing. Weeks do disease and starvation. Half a million people were left homeless. The San Felipe base gone to hurricane wiped wiped out. Puerto Rico's renowned coffee crop destroying fifteen million dollars in estimated revenue over two hundred million dollars today because of this single storm. Puerto Rico would never be a major exporter of coffee again until Hurricane Maria in two thousand seventeen the San Felipe Base Agudo hurricane was officially the most damaging hurricane to ever hit Puerto Rico and once the storm left Puerto Puerto Rico. It turned its fury toward the Bahamas. And then the coast to Florida as the hurricane near the American mainland. The people of Miami Cami feared the worst. They were still recovering from the hurricane two years earlier. If the city was hit again it would be game over however hurricanes are highly unpredictable. And in this case Miami got lucky. The storm swung east toward the Bahamas. Leaving Miami out of the worst of its path it seemed like the danger was disappearing into the Gulf of Mexico a small bulletin in the September Thirteenth Nineteen Twenty eight edition of the Palm Beach. Post says much when Henry Martin of Belle glade read the bulletin the danger seems so far off it was going in the opposite it direction of Lake Okeechobee. But in reality death was right on their doorsteps on September. Fourteenth Miami Forecaster Richard Gray stated the re curving of the storm will take east of the Bahamas unless it changes changes its course and change course. It did the next day whether observers finally realized the storm might make landfall the headline headline of the September Fifteenth Edition of the Palm Beach Post read. Florida may feel the storm's path present. Cores will bring hurricane to lower our coast Sunday but even after that headline the post was still reporting that there was a chance the hurricane wouldn't hit this confusion using lead many people in Florida to assume. The storm wouldn't be a problem but by the next afternoon. A chilling and ominous sign was raised across southern Florida. The hurricane flag the hurricane flag was a black square inside of a larger Red Square. When two of these flags were raised it meant a hurricane was coming back in nineteen twenty eight before storm sirens or TV be news? It was one of the only ways to inform people of an impending storm in real time. But this last minute warning barely gave the people living along along Lake Okeechobee. Time to prepare. The storm was on top of them before they knew it. All they could do was take shelter hunker down and pray. In Belle glade Henry Martin and his family tried to prepare for the worst but hope for the best. Henry remembered the hurricane in Nineteen twenty-six dangerous but not catastrophic may be. This one would be the same his wife. Bessie may wasn't taking any chances wants the hurricane flag was raised. She started boarding up the lakefront windows but the fields were already starting to flood with rainwater. They couldn't risk staying in the farmhouse for long. Vesey may loaded up there eight children into a car and they headed for a more secure location. The families dry goods store in town. Henry was already there bolting up the windows as she drove away. Bessie may gave the farmhouse. One last look it would be the last time anyone ever saw it standing even before. Bessie may arrived neighbors. Were crowding into the Martin's dry goods store to you take shelter. Henry took them all in passing around coffee and blankets and hanging kerosene lamps as the sky darkened. Everyone settled in for the night night sleeping on chairs or tables ready to ride out the storm in safety but even inside the Sturdy Building Henry and Bessie Maze Sixteen Year roll daughter. ANIME was nervous. The wind was howling like a wolf outside. She could only hope that the walls were strong enough to keep the whole all store from blowing down even as the wind shrieked. Henry's mind was on his fields. If they were destroyed Royd it would cripple his finances. It would be nearly impossible to recover from that kind of damage but there was nothing he could do about that now all he could do was take care of the people he loved after he finished hanging lamps inside. Henry risked venturing out to take a look at things outside aside he ran into Lawrence e. Will the local gas station owner like Henry Lawrence had lived through the previous hurricane. He was convinced that everything would be fine. Fine this time but Lawrence's optimism was misplaced. The storm was getting worse and it had yet to even bare. Its teeth as the sky. Grew darker and more violent Belle glades. Mayor Walter Greer went outside to inspect the lake and the dike the waves were lapping lapping up. High just a mere two feet from the dykes top. But even in such dire conditions mayor greer was convinced the dike would hold had to. He couldn't imagine what would happen if it broke to reassure. The town's frightened residents mayor greer went to Henry. Martin store were to give an update. He told them that radio reports said that the storm would veer away from them reports by three PM on September sixteenth. Nineteen twenty eight. The power in nearby West Palm Beach failed by five PM. There was no running water. Even save shelters. The conditions would turn dire by six o'clock lake. Okeechobee had risen by at least three feet. Water water was flowing over the lower points of the dike canals and rivulets were flooding the rivers flow together over the flatlined fields and formed new new lakes amid the crops. Mother Nature was reforming her land. The man Made Dyke was overtaken and cultivated fields returned to their original forms at six forty five PM. As lightning crashed loudly above the words everyone had been dreading. We're finally finally said allowed in the glades hotel. A crowd of listeners huddled around the radio through the crackling static attic. A voice announced that a monstrous hurricane had landed right over West Palm Beach Florida. It was too late to flee the area many had left their houses exposed vulnerable. Some of them ran back to build up fortifications but most had nowhere to go. They were trapped as the hurricane moved. Inland the winds shifted direction. Curving in a tight circle sending its powerful winds to the South West as the gusts twisted over the lake. The water was pushed directly against the dike. The town's only protection the water piled up on on top of itself and formed a dome some twelve feet high overtaking. The five foot dike. It was only a matter of time before it gave way it was almost impossible to even hear the thunder over the roaring wind in pounding. Rain Henry Martin listened as the wind through debris the against the store's roof the scrapes and scratches echoing over. The people gathered inside and then in a moment the wind subsided. Was it over. Henry had to see for himself. He cautiously step to the front door. Then held out a flashlight light squinting into the night Henry could see the nearby canal had flooded and was filled with debris instinctively. Henry looked down. Water had started to seep through the floorboards. Something wasn't right. Suddenly in a great boom of fury. The wind roared back to life for the first time all day. Henry was scared. Truly scared. Water began rushing into the store store. He could hear his wife and children crying out behind him. He realized they weren't going to survive the night.

Mike, can you help Jason leisure here? I believe he is wearing stugatz headsets, and he said the first thing upon putting them on that everyone says, good God. This is so very loud. So we need to turn down stugotz's headset. In fact, Jason leisure. You could just give me thirty seconds of dolphins and I'll turn down your headset. I gotta get up to do it. So if you'd be kind enough to give your buoyant today because the dolphins are two zero. You've lived in this purgatory. Your dark soul, your your, your draped and deadpan. He's wearing a pink shirt, which I know shocked the shipping container. We didn't think that that that was in your spectrum. Yeah, Billy greeted me today with you. Don't seem like someone that would have picture. You seem like someone that would just wear different shades of tan, and I recognized immediately that that wasn't a compliment of any kind while grays also like different shades of gray, that's better. He wanted to what are we doing with Jason? Why do we not think he's fun? I think our perception of him is wrong by the way. Oh, I think he's very fun, but I think sense of humor is just cloaked in. I will appear to not be fun and therefore it will be more fun because it's funny when I'm not fun. You guys talk about the dolphins for thirty seconds. Dan adjusted two knobs and neither of them are your actual Nacho headphones, sound better right now. Everything's good now for me. Well, there's no music, hang. I'll fix something that's fine regardless, Jason Leisure's in with us. And what do you think of this as a tepid take here that if Ryan tannehill in. Is healthy. They are one of those eight teams that can be tended six, eleven five with a couple of bounces or seven to nine or six and eight. If they don't get those bounces botanic help plays a competent above average quarterback enough that you can win more than you lose. No, almost no matter who you put around him given that they've taken out all their names and just put a bunch of general football players, and that's general football players. But like the fastest guys they could possibly find. So they kept the fast guys. They had like Kenyan Drake and at all, and Kenny stills. And they add in Albert Wilson who that, I mean, that is number one asset. It's just how fast is a held back there fast, Albert, yes, as such a good nickname, Chris really is. Thank you. And is it not hasn't not called off on yet? Or has it caught on always forget to mention it, but it's good for a couple of people say nickname, he's is either fastest player. They've always had a fastly. They, they've all since Tony Martin the dolphins have always had a stuff. Fastest player who doesn't actually play as if he's the fastest play. Well, album fast. Albert, excuse me does play like he's. That fast. And so what they're doing with the passing game right now is that take Ryan tannehill who is competent as you said, which is not an insult, he's he's competent, they set up, they eliminate as much risk as possible as short safe passes to these fast players. For the most part, they take shots every now and then, but that's this is the idea of their offense is to just throw these short low risk. I roared passes the fast guys that can run all over the place. And if you can do that, that's a good way to that's a good way to win in some margins. If you just play like it's not a terrible, I if I'm going up against Bella check to just get a quarterback and fifty two of the fastest human beings, I can find matter their size. That's how you win with an okay quarterback. When you don't have Aaron Rodgers, which you know twenty five of the teams in the league, don't have somebody like that. That's how you win with an average quarterback and you think he's average. You don't think he's above average. I graded on a curve because I say the fifteen best quarterback in the NFL is not very good. And I think he's better than that. I think he's about league average. I don't say that dismissively. I mean, if you can find a league average quarterback than you're ahead of. Probably have. Can you do it with a league average quarterback? Can you do anything meaningful? That isn't an outlier with a bunch of guys in an average quarterback of nameless guys in an average find meaningful though? I mean, for the dolphins skin to the playoffs as meaningful there. I don't know that they would tell you this inside the building, but local, you know it. I mean, they'd made they made the playoffs two years ago and it had been like ten years before that. So just making the playoffs as a big deal around here. According to the forty times, she came grant is faster than our Wilson's Akeem grand clocks in at four point three. What happened with Albert Wilson at in Kansas City? Well, he was used differently in Kansas City, and one of the reasons why he wanted to come to Miami was he had he turned down offers to be the starting slot receiver in a few places according to him, Chicago buffalo, Baltimore, places like that. Decent teams, not none of those horrible situation. At least we didn't think Buffalo's gonna be horrible at the time, but Adam gates was telling him, you know, it's a waste to use you in the slot because of how fast you are. We need to get you outside. And predominantly, that's. Meant bubble screens and things like that so far, but they use them out of the backfield. These he can be used as a wildcat quarterback. He played quarterback in high school. He's a really good quarterback in high school up in port Saint Lucy. So I mean, he was just drawn to the creatively that Adam gates allows an atom data set himself up now with a bunch of pieces to facilitate his creativity. He's got all these different guys that can play different spots. I think even when devante Parker comes back, which would probably be this week, they're not gonna. Just keep the same three receivers on the field last like they did last year was just Landry Parker stills all the time. And it's hard for somebody like came grant to get in there. Now he's got all these movable parts that he can use in different ways. He was also odd-man-out in Kansas City to they had money to spend. They wanted to bring Sammy Watkins because I think maybe can do a little bit with ball in his hand, but you're not usually odd-man-out if you're that kind of great. I, if you're if you're a great player, you're not odd man out in Kansas City, and I know they're still guys are good, but you're is it that much of an insult to say, the Sammy Watkins is better than Albert Wilson though they wanted to upgrade. And I mean. Albert Wilson can be fine player in just not saying it's not. I wasn't. I wasn't objecting to that part. I'm saying that the dolphins need devante Parker to play like number one receiver. And if Albert fast Albert is going to be a game-breaker usually Kansas City wouldn't get rid of one of those. I understand that they have a lot of good players that they can do things with. I'm just I'm asking because I don't know. I'm not. It's not like I was watching the way our Wilson was used in Kansas City. I'm just saying, wait a minute. They got. They thought that they had plenty of help there and they didn't need any help there. I feel like with tannehill healthy, we know at this offense is going to be it's going to be in that twenty to twenty five point range. The question Mark is the defense. Is this sustainable? What they did the first two games or were they just playing to average offenses? I think the defense is going to get better. I mean, it will be you will face better offenses. I mean, they were fortunate to play Marcus mariota with his arm falling off and Sam darnold a rookie quarterback with the jets. But what they've done if you follow the money is that they've reallocated there. Spending, particularly on the defensive line. They've sunk all they've taken you take out sues contract earliest part of it because you take a huge cap hit. Let him go, but you reallocate all your money into defensive ends. You just think everything into where they're just going to send Robert Quinn and Cam wake and Andre branch Harris William Hayes. All those guys lead speed just meets has Russ Pash, Russ Pash rush, and that should fix everything. And as far as making everything easier for the linebackers making everything easier and coverage, and that's what don't have to hold their coverage Jones and Fitzpatrick. You've made your defense better if you're getting a better pastor and with. Yeah, plus with Robert Quinn and I've done with, I'm done with wondering if this is the wakes gonna fall off. I mean, I, I'm, I'm content to be surprised by whenever it happens at this point are their defensive line rotations because they seem to be really deep or they just getting those guys in so they can have all these quick bursts and everything that you're facing as an offensive line is just top speed peak, endurance. They're spreading it out. That's why they have. So many of those guys. That's why you have Andre branch, who's you know a second string defensive end is probably top five on on their books for salary, cap number, and that's why they would tell you that's worth it because they wanna have they wanna come in with a second line of a what they believe is a really good pass rusher and Andre branch and a former first Trump pick and Charles Harris. They want that kind of depth. Delaney Walker got hurt in the first game, and the jets don't really have a spectacular tight end, Jared cook is going to be a match a problem. He's still one of the fastest side ends in the league. At what point do we see the same sort of weakness that they've had over recent years, which is not covering the tight end because that's been ky-ko's responsibility. And what are they doing specifically to take that off his plate, Ellen gronkowski's next. So I mean, I I think they plan on using the safeties a lot to cover those guys. They plan on using Reshad Jones j. McDonald and mingka Fitzpatrick if they can. Jon Gruden got to be nervous about this week. Did you hear him yesterday the way says tannehill, Teini hill. There's an his name, man. It's Tanny hill, right? You know a lot of times when you guys have guests in on a show people in for the hour, they can. They can get their own guests and things like that. And I, I actually, I believe we're going to have Gruden on leader during this hour just getting together my notes, man, it's time for me with the local media. Always one of my favorite parts men, Jason, how you doing. We'll see later do do you listen to the local hour when you're when you're not in? Well, I'm usually round here. All right, right, right. I forgot. We're still pretending you're in on that. That's right. It did you listen to yesterday with the life ex? I don't know what life hack is. I've heard them talk about it a great amount, but I have you don't listen to us Billy. That's not true Billy. That's simply not true. And you know, it's not true. Billy has the best life acts. If you've never heard at Billy's are always like, you know, if you don't want anybody coming to your house or speaking to you or texting you. Well, here's a simple thing to do fake your own death and move to Argentina. You wanna know what yesterday's was Dan, all you heard it, but I'll just tell listeners at didn't hear yesterday's was the log into the first week for the first week. This is what it was. If you had a crowded bar and you don't want people around you, are they going people like on top, you spill a drink on the seat next to you because no one's going to sit on a wet seat. So you spill a drink there. That was the first one. Here's another one. The one yesterday. If you're in a crowded elevator, yesterday's was like, if you're in an elevator, give yourself a massive nosebleed. So no one will stand just start coughing, really simple solution. He's always coughing attacks, you know, sneezing attacks and no one's gonna wanna get sick, so they'll stay away from you. This hall in the seventy six, four, five, six hundred seventy. One vote for that. This is all stuff Billy would actually do is this is that a segment that's like it's supposed to be funny because it's bad. Is that the idea that's rude by we just judging by round of applause, the fancy to really be responding to it. Christmas are all like voidable things. Christmases are all like amazing about your windshield wipers. Like if if your windshield wipers are running out too fast, I don't drive in the rain. You have the more Chris speaks in night segment. The Maury proven to sound like I don't what's word for an idiot. Well, yours are also things that Ardy exist usually might. Yeah. Mike products, new applications. Like if you're out somewhere and you need a ride home, what you do is you download the Uber app? No. No. These are all about new apple. Roy's are helpful though. Roy's I found I find interesting minds. Mine makes way too much sense food working razor. Like real things. Rosie, only one playing the game, right? It might yesterday just said where pasties, if you don't like your nipples stickers on your nipples, what? What's your golden? All that. Any of you haven't heard any of this Mr. nipple with the product and it has nanotechnology. I'm looking at you guys. I'm still stunned speechless here. First of all, Billy. Can you play for him when he started talking again? Mike, because he did one of those Charlie things again where he can't get started the puppy on a floor and he's just running and running and running an saying anything and get it because it's funny, we could put it up against the Charlie thing, but I just want to just for a second, all of a sink into the amusement of you guys accusing me of not listening to the local hour when I'm sitting in the middle of it like, I'm, I'm right now sitting in the middle of it, and all of you guys are accusing me of not listening to the local hour like think about that for a second. I think everyone's applying their own sensibilities because there are days that we're not listening. What are we doing? We're also in it. Billy had coffee this morning, oil man, a Cuban Espresso, shy. Just been yapping about Westchester day at I've been. I've been sick, so I needed something warm. So I drank, I gotta Collado on the way in and I, I'm man. I got some energy today. Jason had any of those. If you've gotten indoctrinated to that form of Cuban culture down here in Miami where you have these shots coughing now I know what it is, and it actually sounds kinda good, but it's just like this is too much caffeine for me. Man. He went on this bizarre tangent about how liquid paper is essential when you're making swords and it went on and on for about ten minutes, give the people a little too Dan. If you ever making a sword using canvas, Damascus, go to commercial might donlevatar poppy, who is your favorite NFL player? Oh, Kiko gig was my man Geico. Yeah. So. Go home. We've got a surprise for you. Bobby, we've got a surprise for you here. Hold on a second stugatz alot poppy it's Kiko Alonzo right there poppy now. Bobby. Oh, yeah. If is. Crime. The Senate who went on. Title rice and believed to the reason Kiko Alonzo. Oh, and also some bananas disease lebatardshow with stugatz on the ticket. Welcome back everyone to the Jason and Billy show. Mike has had to step out for a personal situation, but you know, very big week for the dolphins there too. And all that Billy they're looking to go three and all would be the first time in five years or something like that. Yeah, Reno, they're playing the raiders this week, and we're very, very fortunate that the raiders are down here practicing for the week and we were able to get coach Jon Gruden who I've known for a long time. Wow, to come in in studio with us. He can't do the whole hour. He's here for a segment, but welcome coach Gruden age, Ason Liser one of my favorites. Absolutely doing your mo- Gill what a tree, how do we get them? Well, I know him. John coach Gruden John what he prefer. You can call me coach. John grew coach. Jon Gruden. I was watching yesterday, you know, back in two thousand twelve, you did your famous quarterback camp show. When you were looking for your spin, you had Ryan tannehill on there. I watched the whole episode. Looks like you guys have some some history there for the f- FCA you know what that's answering? No, no, I don't. I'm Susser. Pretend you're, you know, you all the film come on man. He'll seemed uncomfortable iron football coaches association. I, I would say you really enjoyed that show and Ryan did not so much. Did you come away with a different feeling? I was really surprised when I spoke through Danial because I was going over all this tape for the first couple of years, and I didn't see him under center at all. And then there was this gangly kid, you know, catching passes number seventeen, Danny hill. He's a receiver. Wow, that's wild. Then they put the receiver under center like a wild cat, and he's just been wildcat in the entire time. John. Tannehill Tanna healthy Neil played quarterback for South Carolina. You gotta look at that name. It's a soft EADS Haney there is neither. That's the sound of the going villas. It's hot over here mouth. Oh, boy. How's your week? Then president Miami where you guys going down guys find a field down the sunny land on the sunny land. Son doubles and thence on is a bit of a conflict when you ruined for home for the Delman rather route on God, but whatever the pretty good, we had a good week brackets and the as ready. Jerod cookman everyone likes it. Talk about their guard up playing. Well, Mark Cooper, not playing well, but I'm not really getting much credit for Jerry cooking with pretty good. Yeah, he looks great John. Have you taken out the the players for any cultural experiences he taken them to any restaurants or anything chasing lie germs, though. Abby s because I took them the my phaser local establishment. Have you ever heard of a little mom and pop shop called Bahama breeze? Now, let me tell you something about Bahama breeze. Okay. When you get over to the bottom of breeze or the onion ring dour this thing's four stories manages all, wow, it's pretty grays. Got like this bi-national dipping sauce. Okay. Let me tell you something. This Bahama breeze might have a future in this business and is a real local flair love those shrimp skewer still. That's a great local establishment. John, it says orders I worked there surprised that grew naturally makes the face in person. I thought it was just the thing he did on the football field. I'm always on always on Gruden face. It exists. Let me doing this face a lot because it's hot and the I'm on the visiting sideline, not a lot of shade on them. Well, what are they? Gonna fix. It seems a little unfair which I'm little worried that you that you gotta touch. This is working for you and Oakland. I'm hearing that a lot. There ear McGill and the first off you'll get my first go round with the Oakland Raiders man, nineteen ninety nine right nineteen ninety nine. I had a full back by the name of John Ritchie euphemism. John Ritchie. No, I don't have a John Richard right now. Okay. John Ritchie ain't walking through that door. John Ritchie as I'm walking through that door. Now I got a couple of pieces here. Couple players that I think I can turn into John Ritchie. But right now it's going to take a little time. I'm gonna need a little bit of patience. Okay. Putting game obviously not the not the looking through good for coach, Johnny, Gruden, but the you know when you when you struggle with the punning situation, you grow envious. We just played at mile high. They, they seem to have a pretty good. I don't know. I don't know where you get one of those. Mark king, even I offer him. He's a good player. What's this computer pack you have on your waste? It seems oddly big. Well, as micromanager I'm in charge of not only the Oakland Raiders at my stadium also in charge of everything that goes on at that stadium. So I got Billy being on one of the lines and one of them. I don't know what's going on with the wires, but I'm getting orders from a drive through arby's. They have the meats, kinda wondering coaches, you're saying you need to pass rushing and you. You had Khalil Mack. Was that here like he'll MAC junk Khalil MAG. Seattle is all Monday night football, man. I miss Monday night football over there. Working with. How did how did Shawn do Sean? How's he doing a love shot? Where's the attic Dutta? Yeah, Sean Monday night football anymore. About Mike, the Rico. Where's he at? He's doing a great job on to Mike. They brought back to Rico. That's great. The about Lisa Saulters she's still there, right? Yeah. Thank God. I love Lisa. It was my first hard hitting interview, and she has some pretty tough questions, but I'm pretty good at skating by these questions if you haven't noticed because I'm not answering that Khalil Mack question one one bit. They're dolphins have a couple of great pass rushers and you're gonna have to deal with those on Sunday. Offensively. They got Robert Quinn camera wake those guys are hard to find, aren't they game wake and Robert Quinn? Let me tell you something. Don't grow on trees. Talk about a Cam wake. You're talking about one of the premier pass rushers in this league is really to find one of those Lord knows the the Oakland Raiders were the devil knows because we're again practicing with sunny land sun devils. I can get over that this is while room for the devils. So yeah, they're really hard to find pass rushers and we've been really unlucky in that department. You're mentioning a Khalil Mack of some sort not really ringing a bell offhand. I can only go to the players that I have here, and I can only try to coach them up to the point that they are John Ritchie exhausted. Is this how exhausting is history? What goes in the Oakland Raiders. I got ten years of this. Then. Million dollars. So every time you guys want to crack your jokes, just know that this'll Bradley lasts about three years and then I'll become a Bahama breeze franchisee is your money. You said that you're not going to accept the money. If you're not doing the job, you're going to get fired before in in the in the. Between you and me, that was full lie. I'm going to take all of this money because have you looked into how much it costs a franchise hooters or Bahama breeze? I want to open up the world's first hooters Bama breeze franchise man. Can you imagine the una rings and that place? KFC Taco Bell mix ups. My favorite recycling only. We'd have the co contract because every time you go to Taco Bell, you just want the Coca Cola, but they only mountain dew man, that's wild. Now you've been rumored for a lot of jobs over the years. You finally took the Oakland job in that that ten year contract probably had something to do with it, but we urge it down here. They've always they've talked about you eight times taking the UM job, how come it never came together John. Well, I had a really good relationship with Kirby hocutt man. And let me tell you something. This Kirby hocutt it's gonna turn Miami around. I have a really good feeling things could work out for Kirby hocutt down here. Basically, one of the biggest problems was I have a very extensive playbook as you know, as you've seen, right, Derek, Carr. I know some fantasy owners are a little frustrated right now at the moment because he's. Not throwing the ball deep, you gotta match the three yard girl before you master the seventeen yard out? My right anyways, I digress university of Miami it. It didn't work out for one main reason. And that was they weren't offering me one hundred million dollars as sin, but I had the playbook already installed. Was it like a? Do you change your play calls to make them specific to where your coaching? If you came to take the UM job, would it? Would you still be running spider to y, banana or well? No, I wouldn't be run inspired why banana. I had a little special, you know, for the Miami team spider to why banana would it became palmetto bugs those e plateau. And basically it's just a Wagle play, but not a lot of teams, no English when you get into college football. So you go up there, you bark out all metal book. Those Latino, you're gonna confuse a lot of people. You, you seem to love Oakland, but your team's moving the Las Vegas soon. Looking forward to that move here. They have a hooters hotel be there to see it. Really. They have a hooters hotel. They have a hooters that's while made you the cheapest blackjack. It's like they have a Bahama breeze hotel. They had this drink, they're called a Maori. Wow, we and let me tell you something daddy. Likey who while John I know you gotta go, you got practice how you doing and I really don't have to go. I don't really practice that hard. Basically. I just as soon everyone has quarterback club nineteen ninety eight. That's my basic offense in their runaway goal single back off vents, but not for too long because that takes out John Ritchie, really, I formation is what we need to get back to. So I'm hoping that they just press ask Madden and then they can get a real grasp of what I'm trying to do here house, marshawn Ben, by the way, since he came back, I don't talk to them and we'll scared of him. All right. Well, I feel like we've taken up enough of your time this week coach ready for Sunday or no, not at all. Not at all. Ready for Sunday. Probably going to be on three really drama. Identify the Browns game is game that we really start turning it on, and maybe I'll sort throwing maybe five yards downfield game. Maybe his pass me a little by, but I'm hoping that I just drag all these games and mud that I sort of just bring all the muck up to the rest of the league man going to be a bit of a problem. However, here's what I have going for me, man, Miami Dolphins. They always disappointment out of really have to do much just show up and they'll, they'll poop the bed that's very rude John for you to come down here. It's also say something I've been kept keeping an eye on these Miami Dolphins from the floor. It was not. So not from so far really, though you doing Monday night football last year, you were in the dolphins facility last December for that you met with Matt Burke. The defensive coordinator I met with Danny's. I met with Danny hill. Let me tell you something about the to see he was super happy this evening Daniil and. We had a savage such a tremendous Haney. We Salish Liser shut up. Yrs Danial is the Liser guy weren't you cover in the heat last night. I was covering the heat them my God, Joe Hsieh that guy's a good reporter. You know? Why? Because it came from ESPN back from ESPN. Let me tell you, okay, they got all these Arpaio's. Now you see all these fancy RPO's there. I'm not even talking to larger all these Arpaio's mount, like that's an acronym workers in Akron that works w okay. That's the only acronym. Nina worry about what's that for w. stands for win. Wagle also stands for Wackle, but you know what stands for as well palmetto bugs those the Latino man that's Wagle play this year every we gotta change it up because dissipate the Wackle. What does that play waggled to the right or Miami? We rag a waggled that h out and then left. I believe that's portside them. That's what you saying in Spanish. That Spanish for left ports? Courtside four, four letters. That's I remember MO for, I'll be on a boat soon. Trust me going on now going to Jimmy Johnson's big Jill gonna. Give me one of those classic mode Jettas it's gonna be great. I will. Thanks for the time coach. I feel that we learned a lot today. John's get to see again, I love you is your come out and support us the Oakland soon to be Las Vegas? Raiders. I get ahead of that gate. It's part of my deal so route on your team going to lose, and it's not even going to be my fault. Village, you find that inciteful. I feel like I've learned a lot about football. I learned a lot about John. Oh, you're still here donlevatar. Definitively know who's. What's that music? I'm not sure. Happy and like what you're right. They're smaller. To gods. Another borough. It's cooking. Good, sir. Are fox. Deny up up. About our show with the stugatz on the ticket basin, leisure the Palm Beach post sports expert. Another do that has its finger on the south floor. Sports pulse is in studio with us today and covers the dolphins for the Palm Beach post as an excellent job. I think towards tail end of this hour one opinion down and get some like real hardcore football analysis. But I want that to be just like maybe three minutes long right now I want to give the Miami Marlins some attention because there she's in his winding down and this is the most excited I've seen Billy about the team and it's not even because I mean, overall Billy, it's been really disappointing season. I don't think that's fair to say. I mean, it's been what you'd expect. It's not like there's high expectations, so they've met expectations. I mean, I for some people, maybe they've exceeded expectations because they're probably not going to lose one hundred games which a lot of people said that they would. That's what's on the line. Basically as a as a season draws to an end. I think high fifty nine and like ninety two or something like that. They're not gonna lose nine of their remaining what twelve games eleven game. They're not. That seems entirely possible. It would only need to lose eight more ninety two. Yes. Eight. I mean, math yelich has made this season painful. That's the reason why he's still on the team. No, no, someone funny. We've got into this season thinking that Stanton was going to make this season painful and it's actually not staying even though he's playing pretty well for the Yankees. It's Christian. Yelich is the one that seems to hurt the most. Where did he go? He went to Milwaukee, seems to be one of the leaders for an l. MVP it looks like a brewer. He looks like a Milwaukee for to me, like I feel like that uniform looks good on him. What has you excited about the games? Baseball, Jason Yano I like baseball. I just while of the Marlins at all. What's your team like your socks that actually there in the same predicament, try not to lose one hundred games of possible. Did you like Ozzy in five? Yes. Yeah. He's at the White Sox. Yeah, not so much Marlins as that was was, who is that? Was their Ken something like general manager, he was always in Williams today. Did you like him or. No? Yeah. I mean, the team won a championship man. I liked everything. They had two thousand five. What's really honestly when you're on the local hour in Miami at this, what people have to enforce two thousand five white socks though? Yeah, man for Bobby Jenks a whole lot signal jank's Baggio was on that team. Let's see what, and I think he wasn't Tigers about done by though, but Tigers play Magli. Oh, on the way to the World Series. What are you watch the Marlins for when when like, why do I watch when the season's over for them, basically, in may. What are you watching? June July and August and September. Geez. For what? What are you trying? What are you interested in at that point by? What's the endgame? Why would you sit and watch that every night for what? For what reason? It's weird. Like I well, because I just I grew up a Marlins fan, so I'm I'm stuck with them. Mm-hmm. You know what I mean? Like what's my choice? If I grew up a baseball fan and grew Marlins fan, stuck with him. I will say this this year has not been my most active moral watching your like, have them on, and passively walk by check in and see what's going on. But it's hard to watch a nine inning game just because you know, kind of their out of it and for the next couple of years, I mean, they're they're rebuilding or building or whatever it is that they want to call it. So they're not going to be in it. But this weekend, Jason fan, appreciation weekends? Yeah, I love a good fan of fireworks. No, I don't. Maybe they shirts DJ Khallid. No, DJ. Cal was opening act guess with tonight as Jason go. The tonight tonight is throwback Thursday. They're going to do what throwback bobbleheads as I mean. Well, as far as I can understand, it seems like they have a bunch of bobbleheads left over from previous bobblehead giveaways, and you go and you just get a model head totally random bobblehead. I, I could be misrepresenting that, but that's how I interpreted. What's going on. And I love that have like leftover ROY, halladay, no hitter against us bobbleheads. You can go and you can get a bobble head. I mean, I have a lot of bobble. Do you collect things? You don't seem like a collector, you collect things? Not really. No, not. I don't have like a stamp collection or so. I I, there's some things I have from my childhood, and a lot of them are probably like game giveaway thing. Yeah, I've not been able to throw away, but they're totally worthless. But they have such sentimental value at a giant bin full of basketball and baseball cards. At my dad's house, I have so much like just random Marlin like there was a year for whatever reason that the Moreland giveaway was miniature billboards, and it was like replicas of the billboards that were on the expressway, and I have like a Carlos though Gado miniature Marlins replica billboard, and it says like one eight, seven, seven Moreland or whatever the numbers on the bottom. And he's like swinging. And it has like the catchphrase whatever the ticket sales thing was that you're it was it's probably the strangest giveaway. I think we have a picture what a. Mini billboard giveaway would be like, how would you display it? It's so it's like a, it's like a hard plastic and it's like long hair drying out with your fingers, and we're on the radio, the super long Stacey still doing with yard. You're still drawing it has like a base, no one can see you. I don't know how to explain it. It's it's a hard plastic, miniature billboard withstand, but I just have so much crap like that that I feel like if I went today to throwback bobblehead day, I'd get a bobble head that I might already have. I used to love bobbleheads for whatever reason you want to know a sad day in my life. Not really. I'm gonna tell you anyways. Here's a sad day in my life. I collected after two thousand and three World Series championship bobbleheads. So it was like the players like Josh Beckett, Pudge Rodriguez Juan Pierre. I don't think that I got one Carnoustie on who my favorite for some reason, but it was all of them because we'll chant because of the chant now I just liked him Jeff. Conan, Mike law had all of them and they were holding like the little World Series trophy. And at the I feel like I got him for Christmas because they're kind of expensive h. Like probably close to forty bucks. So I had them like displayed on a bookshelf and I was moving the bookshelf because there was like a few meters something coming. So I had to for whatever reason I'm moving the bookshelf and I left him at the top of the bookshelf and there is just the massacre and they fell off the top of the bookshelf and they all died. And I had them in a box and I was thinking of putting them back together on like I've just going to buy new ones and then I looked them up and it was like Miguel, Cabrera championship baba was like one hundred fifty bucks or something. I'm like, I'm not gonna spend that on his bobblehead. And then it was also like, wait, I was sitting on a gold, mine of just that part. What I thought was crap. Right? I don't think it could get much if I sold all my. I would tell myself that to minal fell apart. No, but I have do I have like from those? I have like Jose Fernandez, bobbleheads. Stanton, Bob, I have so much just like crap that I don't know what to do with. I don't. What are we? Are we talking about Gotha said Nick was on those whites. I'm looking at the Rosser right now. I was going to lead off with pod said neck, but I'm just gonna go with eighty and show Creedy Conoco obviously were you devastated when Burley left? We've all been looking at the. Two thousand four, two thousand five, Chicago White Sox, right? That's all we've been doing touted Dido Gucci. Yeah, that's a bad Dido. Gooch. What happened to Conoco? I thought he was supposed to be like a manager. I don't know. I never have socks fan Ross glowed at the former Marlin. Right, Ross glowed. Yeah, he was. He's a more specialised. Listen as show much this week, although I did listen to yesterday. Did you guys did you guys go nuts? When Wade said he's coming back, was that a big deal? And I wanted to ask you about that because he used to cover the Miami Heat well, and we tried to Jason career man, Billy kind of pooped. Get down on, well, he's down on the decline since twenty man. You're on the up and up your rights. I'm, I mean, I look where I'm at exactly this moment doing a solid job moving laterally right now. Stugatz just came through here while I was here and Mike said, hey, you want to join us. It's the guy goes. Gotcha. Goes. I got called, I can't. He's been here the whole time also, and then he said, and then he said the the the least truthful thing in the world. He goes, sorry, Aaron, Rowen pull hitter. Right. Nice. Solid poll hitter, Aaron, Rohan, Neal, Cotts. Yeah, you guys want to talk about Wade or maybe maybe wait? No, I do want to talk about retired, Burley's jersey. Right. Is that something that like Mark Burley's, jersey needs to be retired, then he was also a lot of money back between way for for a second. Okay. Oh, you had Duquet and who's a contract, people will go to those games this year. People will be excited. I think to get their last chance to see him. Why you. Oh wait. Yeah, Wade. Well, it's good to have something because I think with the offseason that they had, I think interest in the Miami Heat team was probably going to be at a low compared to I dunno, since two thousand, and this would have probably been the saddest feeling season, although they did get off the one in fifteen, but you're still kind of interested in what the team would do you know what this team is? Right. Right? So the only thing that really got your blood pumping a little bit is the Sweet Sixteen hashtag one last dance hashtag spite spotlight on, whereas it spotlight always on hash spotlight on that check. Wait three sixteen is there. I feel like I'm missing another hashtag whole league needs to do the right thing with Dwayne, Wade. 'cause I think Miami's going to celebrate him, Miami people are going to be thrilled to go get. I'm glad that he is playing his last season and telling people that it's his last season. So you know, this is it. This is the farewell tour, but I expect that like when they go to Brooklyn or when they go to Atlanta, it's going to be a big, I mean for him and they need to get him in the all star game. Yeah, Brooklyn. In Atlanta, you're naming cities that are usually predominantly, he'd home crowd -cremento Mike. All these places are going to be excited to see him. This is one of the great play. This is probably the greatest player in any sport in south Florida history. But it's also, I mean just one of the all-time great basketball player. I wanted to get your perspective on that and a guy that everyone liked I, there's been no controversy with the way. I think pretty popular. I think he probably. He played the villain on those teams. I know everybody sort of hated LeBron, but Dwayne sort of leaned into it a little bit more. Certainly liked playing the villain whenever you had the opportunity, but I wanted to get your perspective because even though you covered the heat, you're not a Miami guy, so you can kind of bring a sort of national perspective down here, Miami, we're always going to a freak out about twain weight, but you bring them in the national conversation. You compare him to Kobe Bryant and get laughed out of a room. So I'm a little worried that the rest of the NBA is sort of a meeting this with a of whole home. This Wayne Wade news when it's really one of the greatest, if not the maybe arguably second greatest to garden NBA history that's retiring then be, does this kind of stuff. Right? The NBA is all personality driven league basketball is a personality driven sport. This is a guy that is a national and global celebrity. He's going to be celebrated everywhere. He goes this year, you still follow the Miami Heat, not very much man, just loosely. I'm not getting paid to do it any. No, I understand you're. You are working fulltime. Mm job I've ever in the Miami Dolphins for the Palm Beach post. But Anthony Chang does. Yeah, you guys men and now that's a good. The Miami Herald had a great pickup with Anthony Chang, that guy's good. Well as good knowing what you'd like the son, I never had Anthony. Chang is really good. Knowing what you know about the Miami Heat's culture. We were having this discussion yesterday during the local hour and Dan sort of let it be known to us that the Miami Heat aren't too happy with a certain level of professionalism that waiters and he's carrying himself sorta post injury. There's all sorts of ambiguity about what he's allowed to do right now. The reports are, he's not cleared for any sort of basketball activities, but they're not necessarily happy with what they're hearing back from the waiters camp. This never seemed like a fit, and then all of a sudden it was working beautifully. And then he hurt his ankle tried to play through. It was a lesser player. And last year at the start, he was overweight, seemed to be satisfied with the contract elected for the surgery despite reports at the heat, we're sort of pushing against it. And now he just seems to be the Dion waiters that every. Everyone expected him to be when he signed here since he's not a culture guy, knowing what you know about this organization, it can't be long for this world, right? I don't know anything about Dion waiters particularly because he came after I left to cover the dolphins, but I, when you take Eric's bolster would say this thing sometimes which sounds kind of corny, but I think is very true of them. He said that their program is not for everybody and they say that in New England, I think they say that with the San Antonio Spurs and is true because you bring in some guys over the years that we're either washed up or nobody else wanted, like Sean Williams, Jill green reclamation Anderson may be, but even somebody like Greg Oden, Greg, Oden got the chances that he did, and Michael Beasley got the chances that he did and all these other guys I mentioned because they came in and they did the work and they lost the weight and they learn how to shoot corner threes they did what was asked of them. All those guys were workers. If you're not a worker and you're not gonna follow their program, they've really will not have time for you and they may be stuck with your contract, but air. Sure is going to have no time for you. I mean, he's not gonna play you the last ten minutes of a game. Like we've seen happen. Plenty of times Whiteside. Yeah, Eddy curry is another one that comes to mind actually for a franchise that has so many high profile reclamation projects that they get Todd for. They've had their fair share of disappointments in that regard has worked even I. He was before I got there, but most of the guys that they brought in while I was there, I, if not all the guys they brought him while I was there that fall under that reclamation category, they worked. They were there to try to save their careers, which I think is why Dion waiters came here in the first place what a staff ready Garcia, Jon garland, Dustin Hermansen l. do k. this is a really solid team. No wonder they won championship. He had a plug and play guy, Jeff. I'm I'm gonna. They lost one game in the playoffs. They swept Boston, would they lose that game to did. They lose it to the World Series lost the first game of LCS against the angels believe and then won four straight swept. The Astros in the World Series rebate, there's AJ peers Inskeep team. Oh Perez. Okay. So you cover the Miami Dolphins those Astros? Yeah. Yeah, I didn't like them either and get in on them. Part of it was jealousy. Was that the one thing? And I'm like, they're taking attention here that they got BELTRAN in a trait was it, and it really paid off of them. That's pools just own Brad lidge rate. We're like he'd hit the ball to them. Oh my God. Yeah, you cover the Miami Dolphins for the Palm Beach post. That's right. So I want opinion down and people are sort of struggling to figure out why the steam is to anno-. It's a beyond expectations. I think at this point and they're favored to go three, you know. So please, can you tell me what they're doing? Right. And what might be a little bit of fool's gold when it comes at you obviously mentioned the quarterbacks that they've played. These seams may prove to not be that good, but what are you seeing actually when you talked to guys in there? That's a concern, I think, well, they wouldn't tell you anything concern. Adam gates doesn't think anything's a concern publicly ever in the players are going to follow that. But there's some questions with the offensive line when you redesign your offensive line, and you say, well, we're gonna let Mike pouncey go. Who is excellent when healthy and the reason that's all gonna work out is because they pay all this money to Josh Sitton. And then he's gone at the very beginning of the season that offensive line is going to have to prove itself. But everything else I. I don't see why it's not sustainable. When you have Ryan tannehill back there, he's a safe smart quarterback gates likes these guys that basically you can program like a robot and they're going to go out and do what you program to do. It's not like Matt Moore where he's a gunslinger running around and you're not sure what kind of chances he's gonna take. Can I ask you a question about the well, I'm just going to ask it because we're short on time the RPO that we saw on Sunday. How much was that dictated by the game plan and the opponent in the New York Jets? And how much of that was dictated by the sittin injury is something that we're gonna see more now because it can count on the offensive line the same way that's run. Pass option by the way. Thank you. Well, I, I mean, firstly, it's Ryan tannehill. It's the ability that he has. It's the skills that he has. They want him to run. And one of the things that has made Adam gates say that this is the quarterback that they want to. They want to commit to for long term for several seasons is because he's got them ability. That's essential in today's NFL. All right. So we're going to see a little bit more of that. You would assume? I, I think just the that all your on, it's fantastic because it's it's an extra day. Namic and I don't think you can count on the same sort of clean pocket. We're very grateful. The Jason leisure. The Palm Beach post spent some time with us. We had in again soon. Maybe Jon Gruden not so much. We'll talk to you nationally.

You'll feel it during huge wins and heartbreaking losses on Dame, winning drive or on drives it in a post game Fender bender. This season up teaming up with AllState. The highlight these key moments to let things no, if mayhem can show up on game day, imagine what can happen. The rest of the week for expert advice call your local agent today. It's a tradition, unlike any other sad, dolphin, Mondays, sad, dolphin, Mondays, bright side. You didn't lose it because Voss wiler so two games in actually the spot duty that he had against New England. He hasn't been bad. He hasn't been Brock Osweiler. It's Monday, said off Monday and Jason leisure. He's making our said, dolphin Monday, even sadder by gracing us with his presence. Jason leisure covers the Miami Dolphins for the Palm Beach post. Thank you for joining us in Suto, Jason. You're welcome. Mike, did you invite me because we're talking about the dolphins are because it said here because it's sad. Okay. Said we needed to kick up. Sad. Dolphin Monday. I shall sad correspondent. We needed spice things up a little bit. Maybe he should. Come in only after losses. Let's do that. That's what we were doing with you. For the longest time, we would only check in with you after losses for the appropriate tone. One thing that brightened my day today was I came in here and I see you ROY, Chris. And when I didn't see Billy, I really felt what's an Anthony m for disappointed, happiness. There you go. What's that? Like, Mike, you guys need a fix your relationship. This is getting way too contentious between you and Billy and I feel like you have more common than you actually do. I think you have the same sort of sunny disposition about all things. You're actually a lot more similar than than we'd let onto the listeners. I wish you guys would give me a schedule of all the other times when he's gonna be out doing holiday decoration reports from New Jersey or wherever he is because skit you can schedule me right now for every one of those local hours. Well, it isn't a coincidence that you're in here right now because of that specifically because I believe whatever's happening. It's the feeling is mutual. All right. We gotta bring the energy up in here a little bit. Jason's got generally not great energy, Mike traveled, Chris, you know, it's a Monday. We gotta bring it up in here. I had a lot of energy on Friday. I think I should become the energy guy. Yeah, it'd be the energy. You're the guy off the bench. I question why the dolphins receive. I was at the game yesterday. I was getting all the details. They, they won the coin toss. You don't receive if you guys ever played Madden. I always receive on Madame, no. Oh, yeah. Have you. Defer. Thank you, Jason. You want to won that game on halftime. On the full Kris when you when you win the coin toss and Madden, do you kick a receive in just in general? Not even a man. That's just where I relate to how Emad annoys received to get the ball. Oh, you gotta have that. It's such a good feeling. Knowing you get the ball in the second. Half always defer, and deferring is a relatively new thing when I was growing up, teams always just elected to changed. Yeah, times have changed soon as we received. As soon as the referee said, the dolphins have won the toss they've chosen. I was like, damn it teams always used to receive a new lost right. Then I actually did feel said just now when I heard you say put it on the poll Chris. Yeah, that sounded like a like a foreign language like things just aren't right here to Chris put it on the poll when you play Madden to kick or receive after you win the toss everyone picks receive. That's not true. Everyone picks receive a fully. There isn't a video game player. That's like I want to set the tone on defense. That's not something that happened me this show. Actually, you know, I guess somewhat meat generally covered the game very well yesterday very thoroughly, Greg Cody was there in the press box. ROY was they're doing great investigative journalism that we can get back to later. I was drunk in the stands. Yeah, Yep, ROY, we don't do enough with you knowing that you're actually out there covering the game. It was the first you hearing of rhino might. We've mentioned it. It's just one of those things that there, but we we need to do more with it because you're one of the people that actually lends credibility to our our shenanigans not much well, speaking of credibility, there was a joint ESPN radio Palm Beach post journalistic investigation yesterday at the dolphins game. And if you've seen that will not allow there was a joint in the press box. All right. Thank you Christiane although I actually liked that one. I got your back. That's funny. But if you seen these movies like the post and spotlight and things like that, I mean, it was along those lines ROY, and I did some digging about the the woman, the security guard that Kenny stills inadvertently obliterated after that touchdown catch and ROY, and I were checking with sources. We were, we were going through back channels and getting background information and everything was going great in that endeavor, but ROY being somewhat inexperienced at this, I think that's the nicest way to put it ROY at one point declared to one of our sources. Don't worry all this is off the record. So now we, we can. Yeah, we now we can't reveal anything that we've learned why he just volunteered that all of it is off the record. I think it's probably sounded like a cool journalism type thing to say just kind of felt natural to you. Yeah, didn't actually. Oh, good. We're already into deep. So I think it's one of those things. ROY always wanted a chance to say, but just very bad timing. So outside of devante Parker and devante Parker agent, the get from yesterday is a security guard who is obliterated by Kenny stills hurt and actually shook Kenny stills up to now is he gonna play on Thursday. We're going to find some things out today. It's a really weird week for the dolphins, and I don't know if every NFL team does this. I think that they do. I would suspect that they do, but the dolphins won't practice this week. They not able to practice on after Thursday game because it's not reasonable to ask these guys advancing about Thursday game. Yes, that's what I mean. It's not reasonable to ask these guys to practice on a Monday or Tuesday following a game, and you wouldn't want to put them through an actual practice the day before a game. So we're not really gonna see any. Nobody really testing anything out this week, and there's a lot of injury situations that we don't know about the dolphins. Right? Yeah. And on the Texan side too, and we'll get into that later. Really fascinating stuff that they're doing with their quarterback, but you guys secure the get you an ROY, explain this to me, ROY. You descend to the bowels of the stadium where the security guard is getting treated as this after after the game. How paint the picture for me in the audience? I gotta stop ROY real quick, ROY. We'd not. There's not a single thing about this. We can divulge without getting sued. Okay, we'll try to explain this as carefully as possible. We know everything there is to know about this situation. That's right. However, we can talk about it. Right? So you can talk about the scene and how you got in place. You just can't go over any of your interaction because ROY, just volunteer heard that everything is off the record. I, I'm not even sure why you did that, but how do we team up on future projects and we'll get right, right. So you guys just mobilize and you. Decide you need to talk to this lady? Yeah, we had a pertinent questions that need to be answered. Unfortunately, screwed up, burnt burnt questions that I would've loved to find out to a found out exactly what injuries she sustained, how she doing. She going to be able to go to work. She could ask to be moved, what is she normally that close to answer any of those questions were? Unfortunately, I cannot put privately. We know we know ROY and I know, but tell you off the air what's happening right now. Just tell us even do that. Tell me, can you? Can you can you? Is this a legitimate thing that you? You said everything's off the record? Yeah, I did. I was your source. It sounded great when he said it sounded like out of a movie. Why would you? But if warranted, the actual Jason ROY journalism do. Oh, that was happening. Okay. So I out say, did you talk to anybody else that could answer questions, pressing questions that I'm listening to on south Laura radio this morning, which is, why is that wall so close to the end zone? Why is making. Money, so much more important than players safety. Why is she not looking? I feel like that one's fairly obvious. She has to look at the sands right as opposed to what's happening on the field. I'm pretty sure that the people on the field got things covered. I can't answer. I cannot give you the. We asked all those questions and I cannot use any of the answers that we got to those. You didn't cross references with anybody as an employee of the of hard rocks ADM. Does she wave any sort of legal. Ramifications here, any liability. Is there any legal liability on a hard rock stadium or when you sign an employee employees agreement, do you assume that risk? It was a question I was brought up on. Fortunately, I can't DeVos the answer. They will go. I got a question. What the hell was Matt Patricia, wearing long black pants, long, black shirt in like ninety eight degrees. I was sweating more just looking at him. Yeah, he was and he's on the sunny side of the stadium to where there's no shade until about five o'clock, which is useless. Yeah, they mean to do that, right. That's brilliant architecture. I figured that out it's intentional. So let's talk a little bit about the game because Matt Stafford was okay effective, but this wasn't the way that the Detroit Lions actually attack their opponents. They were gashing the Miami Dolphins with a run. I was reading a pro football focus right up on it, and apparently Kiko Alonzo had a very difficult game with miss tackles. Has this been something. That the dolphins have struggled with this year. I mean, I guess the bright side is a stop the pass, but that's just because the run game was so affected for Detroit while and they've not been playing from behind his often. So teams are more inclined to throw than they were last year, but this is a personnel group that has had trouble stopping the run at linebacker. They're a little on the smaller side which they would tell you is by design because you need those guys to be able to play all three downs and the impasse coverage. But there's some elements of this that I was kicking myself for after the game yesterday because I felt like we should have seen this coming with the defense. Their defense has been very flashy. It's gotten a lot of turnovers, but it has not been a steady play to play stopping the run defense. And if a team comes at, you would have expected Matthew Stafford to come in with a couple of turnovers, but he didn't if team comes in and plays a pretty clean game and doesn't allow you to erasing ninety yard drive with an interception in the red zone, then it's going to look a lot like this and they give up five hundred yards or so maybe a little less than that two hundred and fifty on the ground. Why? Didn't you see this coming. I was. I was blinded by all those big, fancy takeaways, Chris, I, I felt like they were. They were offsetting all that and I forgot that it's not just you can't just count on that every single week. I think we should defer to you a little bit though. Do you know Chris, Chris Cody? Obviously he was at the game and said he was drunk in the same Christmas at training camp. I mean, Chris has been around covering it from all angles double days the sandwich member of the media drunk fan. So he's he's run the gamut. And also specifically he's sitting in the end zone because yesterday he's sitting in section one thirty one because he wants that all twenty two viewpoints. Aki that that coaches us. Yeah. So can you break it down for us a little bit, Chris? Why was the run defense so bad? I was focusing on the wide receiver DB matchup smoke because it's hard to unless you're rewatching it on film when you're watching it live, it's hard to watch. You know, they did a good job. Gallaudet came in playing very well for them. Right? Yeah. And saving Howard did a good job Alber Wilson to was doing. All right. I was actually impressed with Brock Osweiler like I'm not doing this Bill. Thing where I'm saying that there's actually a quarterback controversy, but he's been really impressive. And I don't know why he's like he does. Is he Brock osweiler's? He shows you like a game or two of, oh, he can actually do this. But really he's just Brock Osweiler not recently. He hadn't been showing you the positives. He'd just been showing you bad Brock Osweiler. So it's good for him. He's so has this in them. He wasn't why you lost game. The defense clearly wasn't issue. The run defense primarily and the offensive line troubles were broken record. Tunsil tonsils plan very well. This season for Miami. He was solid by all accounts, but the offensive line is still a huge issue for the semen isn't even correctable. You're running out of bodies. I mean, when you talk about Tunsil playing well, that's just that's great, but that's just twenty percent of the line. And you've already lost two of your starters for the year, your center on your left guard? I think they were playing a third string center at left guard yesterday in place of Ted Larsen who was. I'm John. James has been up and down. I would say the last couple of years. So other than Tunsil and there's a lot of question marks there and they're con- they're, they don't. There's not anyone else for them to go to the next guy in line to play tackle by the way. If there's an injury is this guy's ex there who is enormous. He's gigantic six foot, nine nice, offensive lineman. But I, I think he's played one career game, so he's very untested. Well, I'm sure dolphin fan and sin at home or a little frustrated because you go up against Khalil Mack and that bears defense and pass, rushing and Miami does creative things with a personnel groupings. I bring a Nikko Leary. They're doubling Khalil Mack, the entire game chipping in with running backs. Sometimes putting lineman on them and they neutralize one of the better pass rushes in the league and then week-to-week. Why is it that that can carry over? Is it because Detroit does different things schematically so you can't just approach them the same way you can nickel Leary is being wasted out there because there isn't anybody to double. So. He's just blocking nobody in space. What what changed we tweak? They've got solid personnel, but they don't have any stars that are just going to erase deficiencies and they've got deficiencies there. One of these teams that's middle of the road just like the Troy choices. And if you boy, if you're middle of the road team and you're hoping to get the tenant, six, you got to win a home game against the Troy really need, especially in October when it's so hot down here, but they don't have this destructive pass rusher like Khalil Mack, who's going to change everything for you and on the other side of the ball, the counterpart to that is they don't have a game changing quarterback. That's going to override all of those shortfalls. So they're gonna have to hope that it holds together and come up with these creative plans that change week to week. And as you get later in the season, teams will expose where you're weak. And few coaches in the NFL would be this is very unlucky for Adam. Gates that in Matt Patricia, first year in Detroit, a team that they play once every four seasons, hap-. To be on the schedule this year and Matt, Patricia, and Adam gates know each other's game as well as any two coaches in the league. I know that voice you're hearing is Jason leisure from the Palm Beach. Postseason Sutil with us all day today covers the Miami Dolphins. We're gonna lean on his expertise. There's tons of interesting stuff to talk about. We haven't even hit on the most interesting aspect of this game, which is devante Parker agent going scorched earth on Adam gays, and this organization we'll get into that after the break support for the day.

It's a sad dolphin Monday. We made it extra sad because we brought Jason leisure. The Palm Beach post cover of the Miami Dolphins. Hello beat writer of the Miami Dolphins, beat writer of the Miami Dolphins, not not a happy beat up, beat writer, not not enough beat, just just downtrodden and Pete. That's what that's what I was trying to do. You guys have said a writer because there's such an early morning show, and I'm so unaccustomed to that. You said you get in here at like seven AM to do this seven thirty. That's that's I understand that. That's what the rest of the world pretty much does. Yeah. Yeah, alarm for like six thirty today to get here. It was awful. And I wake up in such a fog in the morning in general. That is not a good time for me. Do you wake up sharp in the morning or you're good to go the second. You wake up like you could do your taxes? Yeah, I wake up very sharp. I'm a very light sleeper, so I always have some form of consciousness going on throughout the night. You got you guys in the back, Chris, ROY, you guys do dumb things in the morning, just because it's the morning. Yeah, I'm really bad. I'm like that. Okay. Now, yeah, I'm not like the rest of the day though. You guys are good. So you're not really though with one thing one, there's there's one thing that I consistently do foolishly in the morning special coming down here. If you if you drive, I ninety five. They have the express lane, and I can't be the only person that does this in south Florida. I get duped so many times because it happens to be ninety. Five happens to be moving well at the point where you need to decide whether or not to get in the express lanes for seven dollars or whatever it costs that day. And so I'll be like, I think I'll be alright without it. And immediately you get over a hill and you realize you're not yet. Definitely taken the express. That's a rookie move by the way I did that, but I've been driving down here for years and I still do it because it's early morning and I just like my brain is an on yet. I like the first year we were working out here. I felt for that like a handful of times, but now all even get in the express late now because sometimes the express lane is like jammed up. Right? Like fully jammed at the time? Yeah, at the time. And I'm like, no, I'm still I still get in because I know it's just it's going to end in like a mile and then it'll be clear. And then in the regular traffic slows up right after I'm still falling for them. And the other incredibly dumb thing I did today was when I was getting ready to leave. I was like, I wonder how bad the traffic is, and I'm not kidding. You, man. I don't understand this. I'd like peaked out through the blinds in my front window like you would to see if it's raining. I mean, no, no. There was no traffic in our cul de sac at that time. You know what I get mad at when I do take the express lane. I look over to the other lane, get jealous of how quickly it's moving. I paid good money to move quicker. Than you and I am, but you're so moving a little too quick for my liking. So I do get filled with jealous rage sometimes. And also I feel often validated when it slows to a crawl because I'm like, yeah, that's why you pay. Do you ever make note of some like car? Like it's a green car that just went by. It's like. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. Yeah, visual markers. Yeah. The license plate frame sticker or something? Yeah, yeah, visual markers. You also I do that whenever car cuts me off. I'm like, okay, I'll remember this. And then I catch up to that car and I pass them. I'm like, well, why were we in such a rush five minutes ago here I am. I pass you. You're all sorts of complain and before and here we are same exact spot. You happy and proud about seventy year old lady. Just like not. She doesn't even know you exist and you're just like a ha- you ever watched thirty rock and Tracy Morgan. Like one time he has to get up early and he's like, I can't believe it. They got TV and food almost everything in the morning, and I'm like that too. Where I'm like, just discovering that not only are the interstates packed, but there's like there's something called school in the morning, which creates local traffic for you to even get to ninety five or the palmetto, oh, school zone. Zona terrible. You should just be able to fly through school zones, right? No, I don't think that works probably not. The best they might sit a couple. What do you want to talk about before we dive into the Xs and os Jason of yesterday's game. I have another take away at being at the game yesterday and the all twenty two point eight where you were the a couple of weeks back. We talked about the unsung heroes of an airplane or the wheels when you land there important? Yes, but you don't think about him. I found out yesterday the unsung hero of football game the ballboys that tossed the balls into the referees. These guys get some distance and they are accurate. This guy's like standing on the sideline. He does a nice little underhanded toss. Perfect spiral like thirty yards right to the ref puts the ball down. Like if we had inaccurate, there'd be wrestling trying to cut you. Notice you never see balls flying around because you take that for you take that like they must have tryouts or something. I think I'd be decent at it before the game. I was actually there often. They often do the underhand spiral. Yeah, which is very impressed. Absolutely. Take that for granted. I'd love to see like Chris Cody like Jon Gruden style quarterback camp for the ball or the ball, or just like a like a trauma like to see like a behind the scenes like the tryouts how they get those ballboys because they don't just take anyone 'cause you they must the way these guys are so precise, they must have extensive tryouts. I saw him doing trials once for the guys that run around with the giant flags. I know one of those guys, they do. I don't want much more details to that story. So I don't really wanna get into Xs and os because we did that the first segment, Chris, we haven't really touched on the voluntary Parker thing really bogged down in the technical aspects. We're so bogged down in peace. Okay. Big talking point devante Parker agent, Parker's frustrated. Dolphin fans pretty much see drafted. What is this? It's third or fourth. Listen, this is fourth season and after three years at wide receiver you need to start figuring it out and four years. Was this a bus of a pick? We can get into that later. But the main talking point was he was inactive. And after the game, his agent did something you never see an agent do. This is a statement from Jimmy goal, Demonte porkers agent. I am responding that coach gates is not telling the truth and is decision was an example of poor management and cost a team, the best opportunity to win. He continues attacking the health of my client and that is not acceptable. Parker is not only healthy but wants to help his team win. And the only real question that should be acid is how does ga- coach gays justify his own incompetence the team average only six point one yards a catch. They needed Parker active. He is completely healthy and was in full partic-. Station all week in warm ups, and in warm ups this morning, something smells in Miami is how he ends that this is. I mean not something that you see often in agent do does Jimmy Gould, Demonte porkers agent question for you, Jason. Does he represent anybody else on this theme that you know of? I'm not sure Mike. How contentious? Obviously, it's boiled over here, ugly in public. How how upset has devante Parker been behind the scenes? Does he talk to the media? Has this been something that's been brewing this catch the media covering this totally off guard. I think devante Parker is upset about how things of gone, but he, I don't picture him saying something like this, which is part of why you haven't agent say things like this for you. I, I don't see devante Parker throwing a tantrum or unloading on somebody in the locker room going on a tirade against Adam gates or something like that. What's interesting to me about the situation. Mike is you see them yesterday. Into the game with no healthy receivers there. They had two left on the field both point through injury Juki grant and Danny amendola, and they move at the end of the game while they're trying to win the game. They moved Kenyan Drake, the running back out to receiver and Kenyan Drake says, I don't. I can do it. I'm fast and I can catch, but I don't know the place at that position. So they're basically just telling they call play, and then they tell Kenyan Drake, here's the route for you on that play. And so he goes and does it much like you would just drawing a plays in the dirt with your friends? And now, especially with Albert Wilson? Probably out long-term. Now you need devante Parker. Now you need this guy to salvage your season there. Four and three and whatever you think about the dolphin season and its prospects going forward. They don't think it's a lost season at all. At four and three, they're still fighting. They still think they're pushing toward a playoff spot. And if you're trying to win this week's game at Houston, which is in three days, you really need devante Parker. And it's an interesting situation for Adam gates to be to be in a position where he needs a guy that he has obviously. Upset greatly over the last couple of months. Why don't understand the disconnect here? Like if he is healthy like the agent says, why can't? Why isn't he just like he's not playing so like they're obviously not playing for a reason. He's a healthy scratch. And you've seen you've seen shortfalls from devante Parker. You've seen a, he's not this great number one receiver that he was drafted to be picked fourteenth overall, what I the part I'm I don't understand, which I think is kind of where you're headed with this, Chris. Argue, all you want about devante Parker not living up to his draft status. He hasn't. There's not really discussion to have there, but he is good is good player. He does help you. It's better to have devante Parker, take draft and take salary cap. Take all he doesn't even make much money, but take all those things out just as a football player that you already have signed. He does. It is better to have him out there than to not have a mouth. Why? Why is gates lying about it though? If the agents telling the truth, why wouldn't gays? If he is healthy? Just say he's not in my, he's nine. It's started for us. I'm not dressing them. Why does he have to lie about it? If hypothetically, that's what's happening. I, you wonder if he thinks devante Parker, maybe can't handle hearing something like that. They got started without devante Parker this year because he broke his finger in training camp and so they get rolling with these other four guys. And then he starts to get healthy and they work him in to a plan that's already rolling and they're winning at that time. If you remember this started three, no, in many hurts his quad. And is it's again, it's a guy that there. They're not counting on devante Parker this season like they have in years past, they've got a plan and if they can fit devante Parker in if he contributes something, it's a bonus up until this point. Now you actually are going to need them on Thursday. Yeah. Well, you mentioned that they're going to need them, but fixing issues in that locker room with players don't necessarily fit what he's trying to do down here. That hasn't been a strength. Adam case. He usually shifts these guys out. It would be a revelation for Adam gates actually make this situation work with at now. Absolutely. Might you nailed it? Good talent has left the building in Miami and some of those traits. I think we're good moves, but you can't dispute the good talent has left in Miami at different times because guys didn't fit either schematically or attitude wise or a variety of reasons. Jordan Phillips j Byron, Maxwell Dhamma consume Jarvis Landry Mike pouncey. You have seen good talent, leave the building for a variety of reasons, and in some of those Scituate. Nations and were at that point with devante Parker right now. I think that the answer can't always be my way or the highway. When you're a leader when you're running an organization like Adam gazes sometimes you're gonna have to work things out with these guys. Yeah, so Adam gates is indeed a my way or the highway guy, which is odd because he doesn't give off. He doesn't have that disposition with media. He's not this dictator coach, but his actions are speaking louder than his press conference availabilities in this case. And he's absolutely that kinda guy, but he's going to need a body because you have a game here in about three and a half days against the Houston. Texans do Jason. Do you get a sense in the locker room whether the guys that are still there are buying into gazes theory, or are there guys in there that are like, man, all these guys are gone, like gays, come on, man? No, I think there's buying in their locker room right now. Not obviously maybe devante Parker would feel differently, but I think by and large, especially the key guys, the leaders, the best players on that team. I don't think there's, I don't think they've lost faith in Adam gates at all. I don't think that's what happened. Jason leisure. The palm. Each sports Miami Dolphins beat. You mentioned that Albert Wilson is hurt, how do they replace them? The natural place at minds veer to is to grant. They do some of the similar things have similar speed, but this is going to be quite the drop off. Isn't it? Nobody does. Nobody. Nobody not only Mike does no one on the team do what? Albert Wilson does. No one in the league has done so far this year, what Albert Wilson does leads the league in yards after catch and you go back to games ago to the bears game where he catches. I think it's a seventy five yard touchdown pass and a forty something yard touchdown, pass from Brock Osweiler both passes caught around the line of scrimmage, both passes that you could have made, and he turns them into these gigantic gains Brock osweiler's quarterback rating in that game on those plays shot from mid sixties mid nineties because of what Albert Wilson does. And no one else on this roster can do it. Kenny stills is a big play threat. He's hurt too. By the way, he's got to injuries, but he's more of a deep threat. You gotta throw it deep for him. That's how you use him best. Danny amendola guy catches a lot of passes, but he's not going to turn up field like our Wilson does. She came grant is the closest but she came grant isn't isn't at the level of our Wilson. He hasn't accomplished whatever Wilson has in four years in the NFL for Wilson and he hasn't. He hasn't had the opportunities. He doesn't have the experience doing that. That Albert Wilson has that shakes unleash. How many times have I said his name this segment? It said enough radio polish to chase and leisure. The Palm Beach post dolphins expert and beat writer. He's been in with us this entire Monday, giving us the best offense coverage in the market. Wanna get into some fun stuff. There's an interesting story with Sean why should break down the Texans, Mike? Yeah, there's an interesting story with a look at this polish look look at us. All right. Give us a call though. It seven, eight six, four, five, six, four, eight, three, seven. We want to have some fun which as in in the next segment. So do that seventy six four, five, six, four, three, seven. It is Tim Legler's, nine days, Halloween holiday, spectacular, bonanza today that means gear. KOMO who's been missing from this local hour. He's actually in New Jersey. He's going to be reporting live from Tim leg lifts real fast. Before we go to break, do you, what do you think of the idea? You know, we've had callers call in and say, what they look like? What if we have callers tell us what they're the Michael Jordan of it's just an idea of throwing it out there if you like, you can take it if not send it right back right call us tell us what you're the Michael Jordan of seven, eight, six, four, five, six, four, three, seven. We're workshop and things than this. My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom. My first experience with jewel. I do remember being like distance, good. It's it's it's like a cigarette, but not. I don't miss smoking at all. Like I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette Asher lingering odor make the switch and j. u. l. dot com. Slash sports warning. This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is new dictator, chemical donlevatar puppy who. Is your favorite NFL player? Oh, Kiko gig was my man. Oh, g go. So. No. Hey, go home. We've got a surprise for you. Blaby we've got a surprise for you here. Hold on a second stugatz alot poppy it's Kiko Alonzo right there poppy now. Oh, yeah. You mean. On the Senate who eloquent. Okay, rice. And the reason Kiko Alonzo. Oh, and also some bananas species donlevatar show with stugatz on the ticket. We're gonna get to your calls here in a second. Remember to start your call with telling us exactly what you're the Michael Jordan of you could be the Michael Jordan of making salad. You could be the Michael Jordan of taking remembering to take the garbage out every Sunday morning or Sunday night depending on where they pick it up leisure. Are you the Michael Jordan of anything? Yeah, I answered that last segment, sadness. Stilted awkward, radio, Mike, do you think? Should we give Dan some room? He's been sitting here, so politely while we do should we have to give a of talk a little bit here. Dane danza, Michael Jordan taking up room. Be on time. The Michael Jordan and blue cheese last week. We're going to get to your calls here in just a second one. Interesting. Note to the dolphins are playing on Thursday, quick turnaround for them. They're not practicing this week because it's a physical sport how AFC east was yesterday that everybody wins except the everyone loses, except just the way that they lose it home they did. Everyone gets dismantled and and the patriots get to special teams touchdowns to beat the bear all the rest of the division loses at home to the line. That's correct. The Texans are on deck. Texans are curious place with their quarterback because he is too injured to fly. He has a crazy store, all sorts of raising injuries to his chest tournament lungs, too dangerous to fly, but apparently not too dangerous to hop on a bus for twelve hours and face the league's most physical defense in the Jaguars Jaguars. This is crazy. I don't. I don't know how this is allow have they not seen the statistics on how much safer flying than driving. That wasn't. That wasn't the reason though. Chris, I think it had to do with the air pressure. We go out to jog a rib injury, doesn't he? We go out to Josh, John love when you go full. Oh, when you go full, it's the greatest and people don't know whether you're playing a character is, you know? Yes, you don't know. No, he wasn't playing a character that time that was. Josh, what are you to Michael Jordan of me, I am the Michael Gordon drinking beer. Now, that's my bad. Sorry, my dad's got that. Sounds like help. I do need help. My I got a bet from Cam and maiden when he was playing single, a ball here in grand rapid Michigan, they show what to alliance by the way, but I want to know what the price would be like on something like that and felt Ford market. You owe twenty dollars. Wow. What are we. Remember dealers like, what did he tell the wrong number. All right. We go out to David David. What are you the Michael Jordan of. I am the Michael Jordan of overthinking everything. Billy Gardell calling in and I will be spending the rest of my day overthinking every word that I said on this call. So. My question was I like cooking. I like having cooked, but I don't like cooking. I don't like all the prep and all the cleanup it takes. So I'd like never cook. Is there anything that you guys would like to do more but are too lazy to do. Workout, be better radio. What is the segments supposed to be? What are we doing? I thought it was like a Michael Jordan thing, but they're asking questions. That's how they start is this because on the local hour, leisure on the local hour, EP ADD two thousand eighteen. People need a bunch of different stimuli cancers be called. It has to be called with a point and then they've got to do a different thing and we gotta keep like giving stimuli. So we don't lose them to the other stimuli. I'm embarrassed that I didn't realize I was being played by Chris Cody back there. And Ed reminds me of yesterday. Somebody we were talking about the Shawn Watson, having to travel the way. Did someone in press box mentioned that he had to take a bus the game, and I immediately thought that he must have taken a greyhound. I don't know. Why would ever think that you thought that he'd liked picked? He went to like the bus station in Houston. He went to the greyhound station and obviously the worst part of Houston. And I mean only for a second, it wasn't like I continue to believe this for a long time and but for a couple of seconds later Resnick wait, no, that would never happen. You were in here asking me if I've ever been on a greyhound before the segment we'll. Yeah, because I've been kind of fixated on on my brought me back to my greyhound experience that had once riding a greyhound from New Orleans to Chicago back when I was in college and it was enough to teach me never to do it again. Well, but I think that Mike, Mike, I know that the framing of the narrative today is gonna be out, can Sean was not fly, and he has the play football. I'm guessing that he traveled in better comfort than any of us have ever traveled anywhere, like not a greyhound. Good. I'm guessing I'd like to get some reporting done on what was the bus he actually took because I'm guessing it was really nice and he came with his family and stuff, and it was a lovely trip. That sounds like a classic job for the Jason, ROY. Investigative journalism duo on it? Yeah. They like to mobilize in spring into action yet somehow midway through their investigation, they say, this is all off the record by the way. Now they, they didn't say it. I'm not here to point fingers, but it wasn't me out of the two of us. Listen, I'm not exactly. You know a season journalist on kind of a rookie. There's some new and I screwed up. Maybe don't say that next time you got the talent, he's raw. Then you guys tell the audience might be new to this, the specifics of what happened there. Again, if you don't mind. I mean you were sitting here listening to it when we distracted, I was distracted. I'm sorry. For the audience was home. You've never been on a greyhound bus heavy. Then I have been yes, really? Yes. When I took one to Atlantic City from Washington. Aw, man. That seems sad. It was on time ago or last month. Last week a to show lots and having to make all the stops at the greyhound sobbing at where you're at, Sarasota anybody get off and just waiting there. It's really a twelve hour bus ride, but it took them twenty hours man. That's that every part of a greyhound bus ride is the worst part, but that's the worst worst part is that it would take you a sixteen hour drive cross country from New Orleans to Chicago in a car actually takes low twenties like twenty to twenty four hours on a greyhound. Well, that is sad enough by itself. But now I want you to imagine what's on the bus that's going to Atlantic City. Like that's a special of greyhound to hell right there. I found it to be. I found my greyhound right to be unsafe foul smelling you inefficient up. Everything about it was the worst. There was one older man sitting there like a role ahead of me, eating chicken wings out of ziplock bag, and I can picture this like it was yesterday. I can smell it here. I can hear that same bus with all you brought them from home, I guess. Agreement, I was hungry. I had dietary restrictions. You're right l. Antic city go through, go via New Orleans. This guy is just eating chicken wings out our bagging just openly felt showing in between. I can't came from China's sitting in coach next to a guy who spent the whole trip eating some sort of fried fish thing that wasn't a fully cooked. I think this must have been some kind of like tough love thing for my parents to make me by greyhound ticket and ride back to Chicago rather than buy me a flight, which is fine. I mean, I regret their decision, but, but then they, you know, I would have thought coming up one way would have been good enough, but they they were going to stick to it. And I had to take the round trip back and we made it all the way to the end. We were in downtown New Orleans after saints game actually. So it was downtown traffic at that time on a Sunday afternoon. So this is like forty seven and a half hours into a forty, eight hour round trip. And we get in a standoff between a driver and a passenger. And there's been no security at any point getting on this thing. So you have no idea what anybody has. We are stopped in the middle of an intersection in downtown New Orleans. Having a driver passenger. Standoff. At the end of this forty eight hour journey. So you're not going to tell me what the sources thing was about the spotlight investigative team of ROY, Bellamy and Jason leisure sprung into action and talk to get that you want from that game? No, it's not the Monte Parker's aged. It's the lady that was in a collision with Kenny stills on a touchdown pass while the security lady while her back with said he was very nice to her as she floundered around like that. Look very painful football that he gave her. It didn't appear to help anything in the moment she might like later, but that didn't help her feel any wanted. No part of the football. Kenny stills was in pain trying to make things better by giving her a football and she had zero interest in Kenny stills as football, dangerous football when Kenny stills is in pain from hitting the security guard. Like what? Anyway, ROY and I got to the bottom of all of that. We got every answer you would ever want to know. We worked back channels and sources, and we collaborated ROY, Scott, a lot of great raw talent for journalism need. A little polishing. But once we had acquired all this information and then we're preparing to write the the expose, which in inevitably movie script officer, then ROY made one kind of once small error that derailed the entire thing. Glare, ROY at told one of ROY told our key source that don't worry all of this has been off the record for no reason. No reason. He just wouldn't say no reason. It sounded good sounded cool. That's a reason, gave them off the wreck. Why did you give them off the record when maybe they didn't want to go off the record? Listen, not all of us. Dan love retards or Jason leases out there. You know, sometimes sometimes people screw up, you know, as it works. Sorry. He was killing it until then though Dan, but you'll never know any of the details of it. Did you? Did you see a movie or something a little hurt journalist going off the record when someone wants to give them information can playing defense against yourself. Alf they felt safe around ROY. Apparently that really helped the situation that aside. It was a good team. So you guys were close to the store, you guys almost had it that close to head it owned it. Are we going to get the security guard on today? I hope you do. That'd be a funny segment to do just security guard that was hit by Kenny stills next, like, what can you guys get her? No and said, we're going out to New Jersey for Tim Legler's nine days. Video. I see this. I've seen cameras on his law on. It's very exciting to molecular is nine days. So how the weaned spook tackler bonanza it. Oh, it's a boo. Boo. Boo. Nans at. That's it. Hey, it's coming your way. The camera exciting.

Best/most disappointing Patriots so far

"Because he's been rigged the dog Patriots podcast with Nick cabins powered by bed us 879 bed us or been u s.com. Well here we are yet another crazy week in the NFL trying to figure out when the Patriots are going to play. Should they have played on Monday night? But yes, here. We are. It looks like the Broncos and the Patriots are going to play off Monday night yet again this coming week and technically it's not Monday night. It's actually Monday late afternoon early evening. Today is a clown who know what paid any more than a block eastern time kickoff. It's the Greg Bedard Patriots podcast with Nick cattles episode 12 brought to you by Bette u s.com Greg your thoughts of everything that has happened over the last couple of months since the last time we spoke. What day is this? Like? I don't know. It's weird. We were talking before we came on like part of the Allure of covering the NFL and not a lot of people know this about me, but when I was coming up through the ranks at the Palm Beach Post, I did a lot of everything I basically started at the bottom. I was an agate clerk which is the person who does like the page. Tool results on the back of the paper and things like that, but I worked my way up from the very bottom and to the point where I covered a little bit of everything coming up, you know from professional golf mm, you know NBA that I did everything and and I did a few Marlins road trips and baseball was my thing. I mean I played in college and and but you know, I also covered football and I and I remember the the the editors of the Palm Beach Post brought me in one day and I was like, oh crap. They're going to name me back up Marlins writer and I was just like, I don't want to cover baseball. I don't want to get divorced. I love my wife like I it's just it that's a hard hard life. And yeah football is much easier to cover down and have like a family and have a real life because yeah, they're crazy Parts like, you know, what playoff runs training camp like all that stuff but like during the season it's pretty much by the book wage. It's the same thing every week like, you know, you'll have a game on Sunday. Then you get the coach on Monday player day off and Tuesday, you do some film stuff and then you know, Wednesday Thursday Friday, you're in the locker room covering the team Saturdays off getting ready for the game. So every week is the same so that's great. But man all of that has gotten thrown into just a ringer this year and like I feel for em, yeah, I feel for everybody involved, you know for from the players to the coaches to the to the families and things like that. It's just it's it's hard like I don't think people quite understand and I, you know forget about the media like nobody cares and nobody cares about me and nobody cares about the media but like everything is they're all creatures of habit in this game and four. I don't think people I don't think people comprehend how hard it is to go what they went through last week. Like, you know, you think you're going to play on Sunday you practice through Friday getting ready. Yep. Everything's tightened up and then you play then it's pushed off to Monday to where you're flying out and back the same day. It's basically a 24-hour day. I don't think people understand how hard that is for a professional athlete that is used to a certain way and it's the same thing this week. I mean they have any Nick, it's Friday now about 11:00. They haven't even been in the building yet and they're supposed to play on Monday. I mean, it's just to me. It's just I just think the whole thing is absurd and and people know we talked about it the other day some of my anger and frustration when the NFL I wrote a column about it at PSJA. I just I just think that the NFL like we talked about before had the benefit of time and planning out of all the leaks and what kind of plan did they come up with it was we're going to do the same crap that we always do like screw a pandemic. Nothing affects. The NFL will be fine. We'll do that. Well, I mean, it's just the height of arrogance like wage did they really think Nick when they when they sat down and they planned that so watching what's going on with all these other leagues. Did they really think they were going to just skate through the season all 16 games? And I mean the way they they plan the whole season like I would have done and I put this in my column b s j I would have sat down I said, I would have said look. Every single professional sport has had to change or everyone's schedule has changed. They've all given away Revenue TV Revenue baseball strike down to sixty games NBA whatever they ended up playing in the in the bubble the NHL same thing if I were the NFL I would have been like, all right, let's be pragmatic about this. Let's shut this down to let's cut this down into portions. All right. First of all where we definitely need to try to do is get get the division games out of the way as soon as possible just so when it comes to the division, if we end up having playoffs, at least we'll know which teams from each division are the best we could just go with two teams from each division get the division get the divisional games out of the way get the one-off intra-conference by seeding. So for the Patriots, that would be the Texans and the Ravens. I hear ya those to the three divisional games and then have sort of you know boxes of four games off. Play games by just in case something happens for games by and then if you get to it, you play the other division. So it's the AFC West like the Broncos this week for the Patriots. If you get to that page get to that but everybody plays twelve games. There's three buys built-in and what I also would have done was I would have said for this season. We are eliminating the bye week cuz Nick what have you heard about them? We can't add a week eighteen week nineteen because God forbid the number one seed is off for three weeks, which the Ravens did last year to themselves. And so you eliminate the biodome year you go to eight playoff teams in each conference because We're not it's we're not going to know who the best teams are. Let's delete make it a little bit more of an open tournament for this year. And then so everybody's playing every week. Everybody's on the same playing field every week. It did the NFL do anything close to that? No, they just went with sixteen games full playoffs we're going to do what we're going to do and it's just I'm just think it's stupid. It's stupid. I mean it's been so reactionary and I think that's the issue when you're dealing with this the other leagues have been proactive. They've gotten ahead of it with different lands different ideas different contingencies, and it seems to be the case with the NFL that they're just going minutes a minute flying by the seat of their pants. So to speak in reacting to walk every situation in a different kind of way and it brings chaos. I mean we of course we talked to me on Patriot or just making sure it up as I go along. I mean, basically yeah. Yep. We talked about the Patriots here because it's a Patriots podcast, but look at the Titans and look at the bills and the Chiefs that situation the Titans are now going to play on Tuesday night fingers crossed if they actually are able to do that. They haven't been in their facility for upwards of 2 weeks. Now, of course, they've got to take a lot of responsibility because they're holding private practices at private schools, which just blows my mind off but you've got this Titan situation now they play on Tuesday. Well that now affects the bills because the bills were supposed to play on Sunday and then Thursday now the Thursday game is blown out against the Chiefs that's going to move to Sunday. It's it's chaos and it's chaos because as you're saying the NFL didn't really have a good enough plan, they weren't willing to be flexible and fluid and understand that this is different. They were stubborn they were arrogant and now there's a lot of shuffling and even at the point they don't want to tack on an extra week or two at the end of the season, which is at least something to try to get a job. Of this instead of going week-to-week and going. Oh, I mean what if listen we stay out of politics? It's not my realm, you know, I'm not paid to talk about politics and the whole world but let's just go by what scientists and data and doctors are saying it's likely that in the late fall winter months. This is not going to get better. It's going to get worse than what happens then I mean if we have a couple of teams and we don't know hopefully this doesn't happen because over all the NFL has not been on fire the NFL has you know, a couple of isolated issue Tennessee Titans is a huge issue. The Patriots thing is kind of a mess, but overall, we're talking thirty-two teams. They've overall been. Okay what happens if they're not okay in the late fall off, you know early winter months what happens if you hit late November early December and you might have four or five teams and what else is it's so obvious to me Greg. What is also obvious. Out this is you know, when you look at the late-week testing what happens when somebody tests late in the week, that's the problem. They're going to have because can test it on Friday night will be found out Saturday morning. Now the Jets today this morning, they have a presumptive a presumptive positive test. And now they've been sent home today. These late package is late week positives are almost impossible to handle and so it's going to be a mess. We'll see what happens again. The game is scheduled. It's Friday morning at 11 a.m. It's supposed to happen Monday at 5:00. Hopefully it does. Well. Let's move on though Greg Bedard Patriots podcast with Nick cattles here. Let's actually talk some football some patriots Awards. I mean, we're through the first quarter of season and why not you don't even know if we're having a game on Monday. Like let's have some fun. Yeah, right. So thinking of thinking of having some fun, I think overall this dog Is pretty much where we thought it would be big picture if you look at the schedule you thought okay, they lose that Seattle. They lose a Kansas City. I think they've played better than we thought they would and those games had been closer than we thought that they would be. Well, let's talk about some awards first. Let's start with the MVP of the patriots. Who do you got? I went with right now. I went with Lawrence guy and you could certainly make an argument for Cam Newton him missing the last game sort of contemplate complicates that page does quite frankly his performance in the game before that. Who did they play the Everything Is Like Melody together the Raiders that's right. He is not good in that game and they still ended up winning that game but I just think that you know, just stick it in felgers face. I'm going with Lawrence guy because look he doesn't have a running mate next to him in the middle of the month and they did a great job of stopping the run the other night against the Chiefs. That was the whole key to that defense of performance was they they had to stop the run with minimal minimal people test for that and Lawrence guy had to take on like two and three blockers at a time. I thought he did a great job and I just think this this team would be completely screwed with off. Lawrence guy in the middle there and I think that ties into your lease valuable player in a weird kind of way. Who's your least valuable player my lease valuable player right now and look it's not of his office doing we think I don't know. Nobody knows the man of mystery himself. Oh, wow. Only the man with a pony tail that goes down to almost his but that's the only mystery my my last image above. Oh Alan is him standing on the sidelines inside Gillette when they had that walk through during training camp and there he was with his glorious ponytail and just he was just standing there. He could he didn't do anything you couldn't tell anything but nobody knows what is you to stand there? Yeah. He's just who who knows? I think he's still standing there. He's probably just spends his time standing on the Gillette Sidelines. But God. Yeah. I mean he they signed him. He's supposed to be the guy there. They didn't sign Danny Shelton to bring in BO Allen and and you know right now it hasn't hurt them. Even though you know, you could make the argument that it has hurt them cuz in Seattle the run defense was a very good but he's yeah, he's my least valuable player right now. All right, your best offensive player. It's gotta be cam. I mean, I just think that through the first two games he carried this offense in different ways. Yes, we know now that the Seattle performance was a pitiful school because Seattle is like the worst passing defense in NFL history, but he still did a great job in that game. He threw with anticipation against the Dolphins. How long did it running with his legs? Hopefully he gets back in the building soon because I'd love to see what they're capable of with more work and with each passing week, they were adding more and more to the office. So cams my offensive player. Yeah. And from what we know we should mention Kamon Gilmore continue to be asymptomatic and in the NFL if you get too negative tests 12 a.m. Four hours apart you're able to come back. So it sounds like so far. So pretty good with can as far as it goes with symptoms and all that. We'll see if he's actually a part of the game will get to that in a bit later as well. You're disappointing offensive player Dalton Keen. Not that I had high hopes for this this a physical problem or is this now adult in Keene problem. I think it's adult and Keen problem because of yes, he had a neck injury at one point, but he's been off the injury report the last two or three weeks. And so this off now adult and I mean we talked a little bit about him obviously too much in the podcast going into the the Chiefs game thinking like, all right. Well, maybe this is a fullback game, maybe. Yeah. Maybe they were saving Dolton Keen for the Chiefs again. Unleash. Mm. Yeah man. Now that didn't happen. He was an active again. He's been acted inactive every week in Camp. He was 5 a.m. He was bit of a big puppy in that like he was all over the place and you needed sort of a pain to keep him pointed in the right direction, but he showed some progress and I think we'll get something out of him at some point. It's just yeah, it's been disappointing that he hasn't he's been active. He's been healthy. He's been a healthy scratch. That's disappointing. All right, let's talk about this guy because I don't think we've talked about him nearly enough on this podcast. You have him as your best defensive player. I'm talking about who chase winovich. Yep, the guy with the golden locks. That's wrong mister. Mr. Aliens. Mr. Terrible man. He's a various. Well, the thing is is like, I don't mind them. I do. I do have a feeling that he could get a little bit and I'm insufferable like the bigger he gets because the difference between him and Gronkowski is like Gronk never took himself serious like ever and what you saw with Gronk is what you what you God. But with winovich like he is keenly aware of and monitors like people's reactions to him whether social media the crowd like he feeds off of that stuff. And so he some of it's an act but I do look I don't really give a crap. I just care about him on the field and he's been a hell of a player to this point. He's done a great job. He's off. I would say he's gotten a lot stronger this year. He realized his deficiencies and the Run game last year got stronger as doing a great job at the point of attack and he's been a good pass-rushing mean. I think I think he's capable if he keeps his flexibility. I am worried a little bit about him that he that he might get a little bit stiff in the hips the the stronger he gets down more he plays but if he can keep that flexibility, I think he will be more and more of an impact impactful player in the outside. You know, I was excited to watch One of their rookies this year because I was reading all the reports from Camp about how Joshua he might not have everything figured out but he was showing up and he was making some explosive plays and he could maybe help with the pass rush but unfortunately for Josh through the first quarter of the Season you have him as you're disappointing defensive player. Yeah quite a very strange trip for him so far in his rookie year. I mean basically in training camp from day one, he was a starter inside linebacker and that's where he was all the time. We were out there as a media watching practice and then all of a sudden once we laughed something happened and Brandon Copeland was out there and Anthony Jennings was out there even though. Getting started to get more time once he came off the injury list and to the point where you know, who she was a you know, you're basically your one of your top draft picks off. Who was a starter in Camp and getting a lot of reps was a healthy scratch and week one now? He has had injuries all of a sudden a foot injury cropped up. Who knows if that's the Foxboro flu or what but he he just they've got nothing out of him and I am if you were to told me that at the end of Camp when I left the the black boxes open the media if you would have told me that Joshua is going to have no roll through the first four games of the Patriots season, I'd be like, you're crazy. Yeah, he must have gotten the season engine ending injury or something because he was out there all the time. It's it's mysterious and we look at this rookie class, you know, you look at all the guys that we talked about before the season we talked about who shall we talked about when the season began we've talked about even Jennings a little bit and The one guy that we really did not talk about a lot. It's because of the position he plays because nobody wants to talk about the fat guys up front but the best rookie so far. I mean, this is an easy call for you and everybody else. I think Michael on one who has been absolutely freaking terrific. It has been and you know in part of the reason we didn't talk about him is cuz you know, their offensive line was pretty much stocked especially at his position. I mean which Shaq Mason and Joe Toney were like, well, we'll never see this kid and so are at least in a little bit or and aluminum had a really good camp at tackle so long, you know. Yeah and so yeah, he's done a dynamite job. He was my best player in the last game. He's been up there just about every week when he's been out there now do I think that some of the PFF stuff that's out there about like, he's the best rookie and I mean, give me a break. I mean what a bunch of crap. I mean like really you're going to put some Reserve guard over wage. Who's the Joe burrow and becton the left tackle the Jets like really like we're not I mean, come on. Let's let's get serious but he's done. He's done a real good job. He's it's strange. He he plays a lot bigger. I mean he just is bigger than you really could tell in practice cuz we're so far away. But like now I mean, it's just humongous and I don't know how people are going to get by him. And the thing is he can actually move to which is yeah. Yeah, he's got that flexibility up front which is just big for this offensive line. And I thought it was a huge key on Monday night when you're watching that game against Kansas City, they're down three of their starting offensive lineman and you really couldn't tell and that's that's a pretty big deal as we move forward this month and last one as far as our Awards. Unfortunately. We talked about the best rookie you puffed up on renew cuz he's been so good now it's time to go after them. One specific rookie in his name is Devin asiasi. Yeah, just nothing out of them. I mean he I don't even think he has one target so far this year and and he hasn't played very much in. This is another guy who I would say about day two or day three of Camp got a lot of run in practice. And then from there it's been slow slide downhill form and the the only thing that I've been able to ascertain from talking to people around the team is just at some point for every rookie. It's not a rookie wall, but it's a rookie realization of where you are who you're playing against how hard it's going to be and for some for some people. Especially the younger kids you know of of today they don't really realize that you know, they've been used to things coming to them easy and quickly and they're not used to some kids aren't home. This this even goes for some of the kids I coach and baseball and softball and stuff like that. It's just they they they aren't used to encountering adversity and whether that's the parents doing this to them the coaches kissing their butts, but they're not used to dealing with adversity in some kids. Once they do encounter that adversity. They don't know what to do and whereas, you know, when we were growing up it was we were taught to push through that adversity and embraced the inverse adversity you're going to deal with it. That's what the best players overcome that stuff throughout their career. And right now, she's having a tough time with that he just is and they haven't as coaches. You have to find the right buttons to push to get a kid to push through that and so far they have it now off. Oh, he's he's shown that he's a good athlete. I don't know how much ability has getting down the field. It's okay. I mean, I would put them up there. You know, when I watch a lot of Tampa Bay games cuz of Tom Brady i c o j house out there and OJ Howard has exactly killing people down the field and I would say Assi Assi is similar to OJ Howard in terms of downfield ability. I don't I don't think they're that great. I don't think there's many great bands in this league anymore. And you know, so, you know, they have not lost hope for him. He's out there he's seems to get more and more time but they need something out of him or they're going to have to go make a trade. All right. We got the darts. What's hot what's not list coming up. We also get a break down. This Broncos game for a couple of minutes that's coming up on Monday late afternoon evening, but first choice, we gotta get paid. We want to get you paid Greg.

Yeah. Check them out Boston Sports Journal.com not but Dad not bsj Boston Sports channel. All right a couple of things before we get to that Broncos game that is coming up Greg. You've got to what's hot what's not list and let's first start with the things that you're confident in and Boomer Numero Uno that I see is one and only Josh McDaniels. Yeah. I think that Josh has done tremendous job this year. I know there were a lot of questions coming in. I think you know, Nick you were even one of these people, you know you Sports Talk types where you talked about you talked about, you know people with the most pressure on them. Yes this year with the Patriots and I think that McDaniels was on everyone's list in terms of pressure. Hey, no more tb12. No more go. How's it going to look is he just ordinary wage? You know, I think we know now that Josh McDaniels can pretty pretty much coordinate anything maybe even a Kindergarten class at this point. But I mean, I think he's just done a great job melding. In fact considering there was no offseason barely any training camp no preseason games and for them to be, you know, pretty productive on offense in every game in some sort of different fashion including with Brian Hoyer last week and people can say what they want about that game. I mean, but they had four drives with Brian Hoyer and George in for drives of eleven plays or more three drives a 13 place with Brian Hoyer against the defending Super Bowl champions, and and I know that there were some plays that were left off. In the field by by those quarterbacks and so you look at that and I just think that Josh has done tremendous shot and we've even talked I mean no Devin asiasi. No Dalton Keen guys that they thought they were going to have at their disposal James White has been out for games. I mean, the offensive line is in flux. Whatever. It is McDaniels has made it work and I think I think it's just really good on offense so far. I don't know. I mean with a shortened window a new quarterback really a new system what you call when you call it the juggling of what's happened early on in the season the offensive line stuff the running backs with Michele getting her I think he's been over all terrific. There's been some calls. There's been some calls that you shake your head at you wonder what's going on. But I mean 98% of the time McDaniels has been terrific. We don't have a ton of time. So let's get to the worried about list. Yep, because you know, we could talk about tight ends and we already talked about RC RC in Dalton Keen. I want to hone in on Julian Edelman. He had a cub. Drops on Monday night Greg again. He leads the league in the NFL. He leads the league in and drops since 2018. One of them of course was a pick-six on Monday night. You're worried about Juliet. Yeah big time. Yeah, he when I see and he's always had drops. But when I see the way that he's playing on the field the way that he's running his routes plus the drops plus sort of like his energy level. You know, I see I see an athlete that is sort of he's at that intersection where physically at his age and he's almost I think in like a week, he's like thirty-five. I think it's going I think it's going downhill for him. I think he's losing it. I think he's losing it quickly when you see receivers home start to drop balls that's always been an indication that it's that that that they're they're losing it and And I still think look I still think you can play good football. I still think he's a warrior just because he's losing it doesn't mean that he's just going to be incapable of doing anything. I just think I think it's going down the wrong side and I think the Patriots it might behoove them. If you can have a good performance here coming up at some point to maybe try to trade him and and sell high on him and off maybe give him the Tommy in Tampa or something like that. You know those guys kind of unity, it's do we think about dealing a receiver. I'm thinking about dealing for a receiver. Well, yeah. Well, yeah, I mean I would get a receiver or tight end but that doesn't mean that I wouldn't ship out of receiver. You know, if if you it depends what the Patriot Act of guttural schefsky and also Jacoby Myers cuz they're sort of the next man up and I thought Gunnar got off to a good start the other night with his first game, but I just think that like if you can get something for Julian Edelman at this point, I don't know if he's going to last the big thing is I don't think he's going to last season and so if you don't think that then you know, maybe try to get something for him. But I mean, I love Julian he's a boss not a captain on this team, which I think is another indicator of stuff that's going on and I would think about trading him and moving on and trying to sell them I get something for him and sort of start the process. Yeah. I think you need to add a not subtract there. Let's get to the Broncos game offensively Brett Rypien. We saw him. On national TV last week. He had some good he had some very bad on drafted quarterback. And then you've got really a number of injuries Courtland Sutton hamler fans. They're all Bank was banged up last week against the Jets. You're really looking at Jerry jeudy, and I know also you've got Melvin Gordon Phillip. Lindsay's probably going to come back this week. Yep. So you got a couple of good back and you know, you look overall Greg. I think your biggest issue aside from Brett Rypien would probably be the injuries and the offensive line here for Denver. Yeah. I just think they're I think their offensive line is terrible and I think they you know, they they haven't put Drew lock in a good situation and and always always had this problem since he's been there. I don't know like they do have some good players. I may look, you know Bradley Chubb is a good player and gorgeous a good player when he's healthy and Shelby Harris In The Middle on defense is a good defensive tackle just as Simmons the BC product home. Safety is a tremendous player. I hope I hope he shows out in this game a little bit because he is he's a sensational safety and people should get a really good look at him. I just think the old line is terrible loss. And you know, I was looking at the PFF ratings for them and they have Bowls the left tackle with actually a good grade and I refuse to believe that grade because every other time that I've seen Carriage bowls play he has been absolutely terrible and it Turn Style so I don't know what's going on there. We'll see maybe he's improved and we'll see that on Monday or whenever the hell they play this game, you know cushenberry at Center is just he's horrible and I mean they should just run right through there. They shouldn't have any trouble stopping this offense. I do think Faith shows, you know, he's always been a good coordinator. They have talented guys at all three levels on the defense. I wouldn't say they're abundantly talented, but they do have guys who can wreck your your day. I just dead. I think the Patriots should have an easy time in this game. Yeah, I mean I look at the plan going in if you're Denver's defense this year was to have those two powerful Edge rushers. You would have Chubb and you would have an Allure yellow with another injury. He goes down looks like he's done for the year. Although he says he wants to come back. But if he comes back it's going to be very late in the season pretty much useless at that point. So you lose Miller wage job is still trying to get back from the ACL year ago. So that pretty much blows up your plan. You've got a young secondary on the offensive side. I agree with you. The offensive line is not very good. I love Jerry jeudy. I think he's going to be a good one. He's one of the best route Runners I've seen in a long time but you know the injuries Courtland Sutton hamler Fant also, obviously they're starting quarterback Drew lock is not going to be playing in the game and it's it's interesting. It's an interesting plan by Elway because you go Young on offense, you put all your eggs in the Drew lock basket, but yet in front of the Young quarterback, you don't have a job. Very good offensive line, which which borough in Cincinnati to I mean, it's just I don't I don't get it. You're trying to get these kids killed start with the offensive line. And then yeah, it's it's just crazy. Yep. Let's bow our Boston Sports Journal member question of the day check them out over at bsj for $0.11 a day on their annual plan. Not only do you get top-notch analysis of all the Boston Pro Sports, but if you're a Patriots junkie then a membership at bsj gives you access to a ton of video analysis from bedad on the coaches film and direct access to him in weekly chats. Let's go to two DS 2DS wants to know Greg. Do you happen to know if Isaiah's Ubers hands are suspect. He's been active for two weeks has run to Jet sweeps with zero targets. Thanks for hosting these weekly chats. Yeah. I have one came up as soon as we're done with this but it's a good question in. The reason I picked this question is cuz I wanted to give people a little inside dirt about you know, one of the plays in this past game. So yep. So to answer your question to these yes, Isaiah's Ubers hands are suspect. He he was inconsistent catching the ball during during training camp. He makes some great catches you drop some easy ones, but I will say it appeared to me that Isaiah's Uber was supposed to have a Target in that game and it was supposed to be in a very big spot, but it looked like the quarterback Jarrett Stidham took things upon himself. And so so what happened was Nick, do you remember that? Fourth-and-one play there was like, I don't know about four or five minutes left in the game and they're driving and there was a fourth-and-one play instead them sneaked sneaked it you remember that. Yep. So if you watch that place and it's even more pronounced on the coaches film Isaiah super runs runs ago. He's the only receiver on that play he comes into the game. You're like, well, this is weird cuz all Zoomers done is rent jet sweeps and at the snap off Zuber flies down the field and he looks back for the ball. And so I don't know if Stidham had a two-way go on that. I've never seen that before in the Patriots offense or he just decided you know, what? I don't want to throw this past. I'm just going to sneak it but the Patriots were running a 4 and it and it would make more sense if Saddam was supposed to throw that pass because we're all watching the game where like they've realized what the score is and the time it was like Andy Reid's Drive in the Eagles Super Bowl ring. It was like they do know what's going on. Right? And and so I think he I think Saddam was supposed to throw that passed as Uber there. I think they were trying to take a shot and get a score and a New Jersey And get back into the game momentarily, but I think Saddam just decided to sneak the ball. And so, you know there you have it. They they I think they wanted a throat as Uber in a big spot. So his hands off Stone, but we'll have to see interesting. That's an interesting Little Nugget. See that's why you listen to the Greg Bedard podcast with Nick cattles, especially you listen till the very very end cuz you never know what kind of down you're going to get. We'll see if this game actually happens on Monday late afternoon early evening between the Patriots Broncos both Greg and I like the Patriots even you know, if I'm not out there they should still win this game. It might be a little closer without Cam, but we think they should get by the Broncos Broncos offense should have a very tough time against this Patriots defense until next time we'll recap the Broncos Patriots game and who knows it's 20 20 anything else that happens. It's it's nuts. It's crazy. It's the Greg Bedard Patriots podcast with Nick cattles brought to you by bet u s.com. Thursday

She's an entertainment columnist for the Palm Beach Post her writings been featured in the Miami, Herald, modern loss, many other places and shirt. She's taken up. Speaking engagements including an annual appearance at Camp Widow, which will ask her about. It's a program of soaring spirits, International Organization for widowed men and women that reaches nearly five hundred thousand people and a series of book. Club events were women. Now Leslie happens to live in my town. My city she is a local celebrity and now I have to say Leslie you. Jumped up to national celebrity because you were just on the today. Show with Hoda in Jena. How is that? It was really fun it was. Still I saw you walking? Out, so I am. Not feel about any of it It was really fun. It was interesting. We were supposed to have done it on a like in the studio back in April and then that was canceled. When things go bad and no one was doing anything in front of audiences, or whatever so We've found out a week before they have resettled it. You know talk about grief, which is obviously something that everyone is talking about right now grappling with so. with myself David Kessler the very famous grief writer, and he's really accomplished and I'm like. I feel like I'm the you know the circus clown? I'm like okay. I'll still yet was well. You know you talk to grief, but they also were checking in with you about resilience, and you are the ambassadors for resilience. You're right up there with the best of them. Thank you. So mostly, we want to chat about the new book. You've written called widow, a sad funny journey through grief for people who normally avoid books with the words like journey in the title. You're such a hoot so yeah, you know the book. Of course is a mix of witty humor and observations that the same time gut wrenching realities of of your life and what you've been through, so could you set the scene for our listeners of what's the gist of the story of black widow? Basically when people ask what it was about before it came out, it was like feeling Giddy in the year of magical thinking, but funnier black people. Oh and that's you know there you go. It's a book about widowhood. It's a book about. What happens after awhile since sort of finding your way back to whatever your thing is, it's about. Adoption and living with your mom again in aging and. Journalism and race and friendships and weight loss and Through everything probably like eight other things that got cut out. Editors like this is not the serious as April. So. yeah and I wish you'd actually had a little pocket at the back for a tissue and Heavy duty one because literally as people and I noticed that the first testimonial in the back is from James, Patterson and he had the same experience I did where he said Blackwood will make you laugh and cry sometimes on the same page. So, it was amazing. I appreciate that. Yeah, so, what was it like I know James Interviewed you and How how what was it like? Dealing with him I mean he's. Number one in the book publishing. He's a lovely person and I met him. Not long after I moved here because he email, he sent me a letter in a book, and he said I I've moved to Palm Beach I. Read Your stuff I think you're funny. Does like what's happening so. We. We haven't been like you know like Subaru. Best Friends, but he's been incredibly. Kind to me and he's given me. Advice the I see him every once in a while like. Just out like a movie theater or at a restaurant and I've had occasion to interview him several times the last eighteen years. So I ran into him last year, and he read my book and he was very helpful. And actually you know got some people And he was really complementary and great about it, and so when this opportunity came up to the event on Palm, beach, which was literally it was illegal for my book, came out and was right for everything crappy. It was nice to get an event there and it was actually a weakened. What would have been my tenth anniversary weekend of getting married at the same hotel colony I'm home beach. We got married on the wallet outside of the ballroom where we had this event. So it wouldn't and so many of the same people were there, which was really cool, if we were having our big anniversary party, but that wasn't there, and that's why party for both of us. It was fun. So. I, mean I have so many things I wanna ask you, but you know you you say in the book at some point, you have an established history of things not going your way I mean. Would you say the pandemic sort of? Putting the the the skids on your book tour. That category. Evans really sound selfish, but it was hard not to take it personally because I couldn't take it personally. People died right My life has been altered not in in the worst way I mean. I, didn't take my book tour, but I get to work from home. I. Live in a home. I have Wifi. I can more than afford to pay my rent. I can more than four to eight sometimes a lot. You know I could afford the expensive diet program new that I'm on to relate that I ain't so I have a lot of privilege in that, but it didn't go the way that I expected it to go, but it didn't go nothing with the way anyone expected anything to go, so I'm not alone and then yard was like for real for real. Yeah well, you've done getting a lot of press because the book speaks for itself in a sense, and then you, you help that along for sure with zesty personality, so you know we're creeping up on July, which makes it five since got past five years. Yeah, to light twenty nine hundred. So can I ask I mean? How you doing? I've well I. Mean I think that. You got the or as can be expected, but I think that. I I was speaking to a woman who I'm his podcast. I'm doing. A little bit. WHO's a widow earlier about this clear? Reasons whoever's reading is not. linear you know so. I have not in the same place I was. Five years ago. That happened, yeah! 'cause I am glad that I'm not. It would be great if I was still. Get Sad and I still miss him and stuff, but I mean. I have been able to move forward. Not Move On. Past but move forward. I mean he as someone. Sit Today. I will always be widow. You know even if they got married again, you know. When was high on the Hog and living at undisclosed place that I didn't use address. It can give the peasants from Turkey I have been widowed, and I still would have lost him, and they're still would have been that loss, and that's part of my story. You, know I'm I'm sorry that that happened, but I'm proud that he was probably wouldn't change anything about that. Other than him being gone. I wouldn't change change having been. In his life, even with a hurt you know. Yeah well aside from Jamie Fraser and Clara on out lenders. You know that people are like over their relationship. You had girl what a lot of people! Really! Seek and never get, and that is true love. I've seen you guys two guys. Together and I mean that's being something to you right? It really does, and it means and the sounders fatalistic, and this is the thing that happens on the hallmark movies, and we're like you about. The hot summer will show tomorrow, but I really did and I know that lot of people don't get that so I would like to find you know love again, but if I don't, I had a really good one. Get One. I'm not trying to be greedy except I am. I would like one. Thank you. And if that doesn't always happen so what he did. Yeah, and why not so little buddy? There Brooks He's about six now eighty. Six, he'll be seven in September. Cool and I love You talk about in the book how you chose his name now my kids, I have three kids and they. Their names all mean something I was married I to a Korean. Which is my name? My name is Kim. Brand Kim is from being there in a brand is the Englishman, but the children's first names also have meaning so. Could you explain how you chose his name? Scott says his name is name is. Brooks Robinson streeters orbits hyphenated. worked for. Evanston is the legendary Baltimore. Orioles Third Baseman and Scott Favorite player, and he that's who he is named after, and we actually got an opportunity. For about a month ago to be a part of a first phase zoom call with Brooks and coward skin, and any Murray and Ken singleton yields and. We'll my gosh. My hair just stood up there. It was really great because we just were at the end, we both live. We were muted, but at the end there were a bunch of kids from around the country. Corning Brooks because it's a big thing. There's a right of sports writer who said in new. York named candy bars after Jackson in Baltimore. We name our kids after Robinson. It's. There was there was one family who somewhere in Florida who had a brooks. A cal no brooks, a Rifkin and a Camden after Camden yards stadium, so it's like that's Hilarious, so yeah. That's funny well. I also. I love to that. You actually have name my daughter. WHO has a two year old is also pregnant with a second child in a couple of months hasn't revealed the name, but I had up to me and they I'm sure they have a name in mind, but you had a name in mind and when you held him as as newborn. You, said you know what that name doesn't feel like him. It, didn't he doesn't a Max? Weird, because we're going to be Max, and then we met map. We met him and let him. Know No, I mean. He obviously had a birth name But you know we decided to to change that He's routine. You know some parts of it, but his. He looked at him and thought. No. Not who you are I, don't know why. He just didn't feel like Max. He felt like a brooks. Any is a brooks I was like okay. You didn't like you know. Vitamin E. EARN EVEN WANNA call them. That's. Great! Yeah fantastic well, and that's that you know. I think because you are a writer in the entertainment industry, but I know you do Improv and the book like you said is. Funny as all get out even going through grief, and with some serious the whole series of impact on your life, but the fact that you can tune in and pull the essence out of situations I think that's just another example of that. So, you mentioned camp widow. Is that Kinda Morose, or is it really helpful in Bonn or I mean? If all of the things, if all things, could you go camp, widow, you know, but. There is something miraculous though being. In a group of people that get you that the defining experience in your life is also the defining experience in their life, and they're not going to judge you for it. They don't think you're weird. They don't have that initial thing that happens when you see someone who's grieving where you go. Oh, whatever everyone's like out? There and people are in different stages of healing. And at different times along their their time line. You know, but. It's it is. It can be very emotional. It can be really fun. Widows sometimes drinkers. it can be very huggy. It can be very dancey. There's always like an. Event that's like dancing and stuff. It's fun. I've been both and campus several times in Toronto last year and it's been the one all the camp. What's going to put online? San Diego been postponed we'll see what happens. But no, it's it's really wonderful and I always look forward to going to camp and also because. Going to want to. Toronto I met people that I'd never met before because. That's Canadians and new. Yorkers and new Englanders stuff to go to that one down here. You get more southern people. And also people who just want to be in Florida in March. Right right right well, you actually talk in the book about I. Mean You ask the question is? is a widow ever allowed to make jokes for one thing? You also referred to a new widow lifestyle. What what did you mean by that? that. was. And it's a joke in a way. It's like those phrases they use in advertisements like in your plea, single lifestyle and your new Florida Lights. Off Course and it's like in your new little is like Oh. That sounds like a stupid thing. It's not fun, but what I meant was his insult different. You know it was. One day I was married. Five minutes later. I wasn't because I was. And I was in the same place at least for a while in the same house. In the same job with the same friends with the same kids, the same mom but yet. A chunk of my life in ripped out and it really did change except for like I, said I. I'm fortunate enough that. Just like with you know cove, instead stuff these things. And I had my own job in my own insurance I had my own car. Beck account my own credit. I was not like so many widows that I've met from down here. Who are you know who were widowed? Not Been here eighteen years. So you know it goes back. Further the age of the people depending on where I met them, but you know women who, in their sixties and seventies had never. Had jobs outside the home didn't know what banks their money was in didn't know anything about their life insurance policies. They had to win. It'll be things they'd never pay bills. And suddenly, hopefully they're dull children. Get figure out how to do. They know the passwords for anything yeah? Not all of them, but that's a generational thing lifted depending on who you're talking about, and I was fortunate enough. If there's anything fortunate about that situation. I was fortunate enough that. I had my own. Autonomy in that way while it ripped out my heart, I also didn't have to figure out how to pay my rent. Yeah for sure. Well you know you you speaking of ripping out I mean one of the quotes. I wrote down from your book that just like got me was you? Said climbed out of Hell by the tips of my raggedy fingernails. And I kind of connect that to as I was reading your book I was writing down some of the names of the people that were your support system. Your family, your friends, Scott's family people that showed up out of the woodwork, and than the old diehards and so on, but oh my gosh they. Euro so well loved. That's really and I'm not even be self deprecating about it because there's times when people go. Oh. You're so great and everyone wants you. Out. What this whole thing what you know and I making to do that because I take this seriously and so precious. It would never sell short or pretend. That wasn't such a privilege and honor. To have connected with people who would go the map free you and I have many many people do the same for all you know, but it's It's very humbly. Cried much. Those are the part of the times when I cried in. Your book is like Oh my God. He showed up for her then only non she show. You know who I really got me. I just saw. Lovely absolutely lovely. Now live in intergenerational household. I do. What are some of the cool cool things you're learning about each other? Well I've learned that my mother Love Popcorn for dinner like a pope. She.

It's pretty astounding. Amazing that's wonderful. That's great now. Just shifting gears a little time. We have left a couple of minutes here you didn't mention. Maybe you'd get back in the game. I was thinking If you get out on the dating sites and all that stuff, I can only imagine hearing other stories from my friends. I think you should write a movie script when you get around to doing that. Write a movie script custom here adventures dating. Already. Five years I've already been and decided. I wanted to date. I just don't want to be on. The I deleted all my apps. Terrible terrible. If I, everyone I've dated. Not just since got the including Scott from Scott one has been someone. I've known for very, Long Time. I friends laugh at me, but like I go back to the recycle then. In a way that. There's something to be semi. Nice, meet somebody new, but at the same time it's there's something to be said for. Passes and having a history set up. So, I am. Dealing with. Knew you beat the newly. Fantastic.

The White House has invited House Republicans on the US MCA new NAFTA whip team to meet with President Donald Trump next week the invitation to that out yesterday to a few offices on Capitol Hill Trump's personal involvement here is a new dynamic, and it's notable elements in the White House pushed back on his last week when we asked when the president would get involved while he's now getting involved speaking to a small group of Republican members, but his top legislative priority. We've got a spotted Clarence Thomas. The supreme court Justice leaving lunch at the capital grill. He was greeted by TMZ reporter who yelled Justice Justice who do you like in March madness. He laughed and said, I like you Eliana Johnson and Daniel Lipman report the White House. Aides are struggling to see the president strategy. Thirty in his fights. With George Conway in the late. Senator John McCain aside from the plainly obvious observations about the McCain Trump feud, President Trump seems to be a bit confused on the substance McCain voted against a skinny repeal which wouldn't have repealed ObamaCare immediately. It was aimed getting the two sides the house and the Senate into a negotiation. Yes, McCain stop that. But it's completely plausible that the process would have gone sideways. If McCain had voted yes, there were other efforts to repeal ObamaCare after this that also blew up, but the president seems to have settled on McCain as a punching bag. Here's how McCain's allies are responding. The Kane institute sent out a fact sheet about the late Arizona Republicans life and Senator Lindsey Graham said yesterday that Trump bashing McCain hurts the president more than it hurts McCain and his legacy, but CNN's Manu Raju notes in a tweet the GOP senators who are up for re election in twenty twenty I've been mostly mum on Trump's attacks.

Surprisingly, lavish praise on Republican donor Paul singer at a recent dinner as he tried to other top GOP donors secretary of state, Mike Pompeo was in Jerusalem standing next to Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday and said, sadly, we in the United States.

Tua Will Start! What is the Fantasy Impact? (10/20 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"Dolphins are not satisfied as being three and three going into their five. They are going to to a tongue about loa after their week seven by Adam as their and Jamie Eisenberg here to break it down. Okay Jamie, first of all this talk about to you picking them up. he should already be owned in two quarterback in super. Flex. Leagues obviously to quarterback these most likely where the twenty percent roster percentages is. Most prevalent but in Super Flex Leagues. If he's out there, you should absolutely pick them up in one quarterback leagues. I'm not going to run to pick them up but you know I think it's worth speculating on if he's going to produce anywhere close to the level what Ryan Fitzpatrick was doing. So you have to wonder if the running rushing ability that he should be able to have an taking advantage of these receivers will have. The. Same sort of impact but you've got to see it I and it didn't talking to get easy for him coming off of his by week against the rams and his first NFL start. So most one quarterback leagues are not going to rush to get to talk about. Are there any quarterbacks say you consider dropping for him? Gardner men shoe? WHO's better long-term Derek Carr would you do put him up in that Rangers he lower? He's lower for now but he certainly has the ceiling to be higher. I, mean think about what we see from Joe Borough and Justin Herbert and the pedigree is there for him as well. So he has a good receiving corps when everybody's got find out about the vaunted Parker. Would that groin injury but I mean Parker Williams's Sacchi Miles gasket and that's as good as most of those quarterbacks that we're probably going to consider dropping and four and you know I think we'll run a little bit. We saw that from him in at Alabama is not like a extremely run heavy type of quarterback but move enough and I don't know I mean I think we're GONNA. See a lot of you know up and down game for the dolphins like we've seen you know for a good portion, the season. Well. Yeah look it's a weird. It's a bit of a strange move. People were kind of caught off guard. I did a twitter poll. Do you think the dolphins are making a good decision? Yes or no, and right now fifty two percent say no forty eight percent say yes. So. Very, split there, but the timing is weird. Yeah. Because their game out of first place in the AFC east the Patriots, we don't really know what to make of them and they could be better than New England even though New England beat them I don't think they're better New England but they could be in buffalo was obviously struggle a bit with two straight losses so. They have a better chance to be a playoff team with Patrick than they do too but. Is this the sustainable playoff team? No. So you make the move to the guys. I think they could have made the playoffs you they make the playoffs. Yes. Make a run. No but I. But who's going to be a better quarterback? This year is do we really think to is going to be better than Ryan Fitzpatrick and that's really the fantasy spin fitzpatrick is the number thirteen quarterback on a per game basis in six point per passing touchdown leagues he's had three pretty solid game between he's no he's had three great games with twenty eight or more points he said twenty or twenty one. Points twice and four points in week one. So that's tough to expect from to tongue loa and how does it affect Devante Parker Pressing Williams? Mike is Sixty miles gas. How about we start with the passing game? What do you think about the passing options? So I had we did the series on fantasy football. Today we had to beat writer from every team come on and Joe Shout at the Palm Beach Post asked that question you know we we expected at some point there will be a quarterback change. And I was always of the belief that those guys would struggle with two and Joe said, and Joe's great at what he does that to his accuracy. Should be better than Fitzpatrick's now obviously was seventeen year veteran versus a guy making his first nfl start. There's GonNa be some accuracy issues. But if that's the case. then. The quality of throws could be better for. The, dolphins guys as opposed to maybe the gunslinger mentality of the I don't give a bleep mentality from Fitzpatrick Zuma. Throw in the tight windows and give those guys a chance to make place. It's a downgrade of my mind. So you know I think this is the time to try and sell Parker especially since he's hurt. maybe not by in depressing Williams even if Barker's her and then you might be looking for another tight end since you need anyway on a bi week. So you might try and find somebody who can help you past week seven. Do you still consider Parker must start. Not immediately because he's coming off his by with two most likely against Jalen Ramsey. So you know I think we're going to take a game by game until we see how this looks. And he hasn't exactly been putting up monstrous numbers. He's been putting up good numbers. Part of it has been some of the game flow, some health law against Jacksonville, the blood against the jets. So. We'll see. Okay. What about Miles Gaskin Jamie's value up down to the same for him I'm GONNA say the Sane but if I had to, you know if you WANNA press me on prices down just because again, Fitzpatrick's different type of quarterback you know. So he's going to open up some things. Make things a little better but let's give dolphins offense line credit. They've done a nice job. Gaskin has done a nice job. You know he's been catch the ball. I don't think that's going to be a big difference One of two us to passes was the Patrick Laird in the garbage time. So at least through running back, if you want to hang your hat on something there John galleys, offense features running backs in the passing game. So I would imagine that something that's GonNa be a big staple of what they do. And then Kazuki with by right now do you drop them Maria keep him I would look to drop him, but it depends on who's available you know. So I'm not dropping in for Darren fell. So I don't think has a long-term. Doesn't have long term sustainability. I'm not dropping him for Berkshire. While I, there is a is a week replacement would hold. Isn't he the same as Darren fells? Know, what are? A must our Guy Jones Smith is out fells could be nothing. But what I'm saying is you're not going to drop Kazuki for for driving sticky for unless I, just need the roster spot and the. Gate so that those are two different things from might be but I. See we go Like I think you can drop him for Trey Burton, coming off their bye think you drop them for maybe earth. Smith. Coming off their bye. Guys that real. Well I mean Smith is basically. If you look at the highs and lows of Mike he's been met the last two weeks kinda right there now come on. Mike Sticky had a hundred something yard game the highs, and then there's the lows. Yeah the the lowest are interesting for a sickie because well, I can't compare them to the lowest for IRV Smith, he. Earth myth the last two weeks. and. The highs and lows of music. I guess. It's been consistent five targets needs to the last two games four catches fifty five to sixty four yards very encouraging stuff when you look at sixty. Game against. Jacksonville Fitzpatrick through twenty times game against the jets was just weird Yeah. Really Bad the Seattle game. Three games last four with fifteen or fewer yards I guess it was a little hard to defend that. But two games with ninety one or more yards. He's an interesting player. This is this is a really interesting move and it's it's kind of annoying. I don't really get it. If, you're again I was going back to the have better chance to make the playoffs with Ryan Fitzpatrick this year. But they're not going to go anywhere else. So. Do you set yourself twenty twenty one? and. Make sure that too is ready to go by then. Like I would've probably done this for five weeks from now. But the bye week makes it interesting because they get two weeks to get to up to speed. You also have to wonder if there's a trade marketing for. Fitzpatrick. And if I'm Dallas I would offer Dalton. And a pick for Fitzpatrick. And See if it's Patrick could salvage. All right. Well, we'll see if that happens we'll have more reaction to this tomorrow show. Tonight Switch Eight o'clock pm you WanNa talk more about to bring it on riding are twitch twitch channels which dot com slash F F today for Jamie I'm Adam theft.

What climbers fine when they reached the top a log jam of other climbers and you'll hear that chilling? Description tonight, overnight presidential by responding to President Trump tonight after the president targeted Biden, while overseas agreeing with Kim Jong UN driver bringing abandoned the hospital when the alarming moment happens that man apparently attacking him for not getting into hospital quickly enough that news conference moments ago, the woman who survived seventeen days lost in the woods, what did she eat, and how she slept in a bores den and the Memorial Day visitors who left this behind the outrage tonight over ten tons of trash? This is ABC news tonight with David Muir, believing, it's great to have you with us here on this Tuesday night, and we begin with reports of new tornadoes on the ground just a short time ago this time in Pennsylvania. In fact, there are warnings and watches right now from Texas all the way up to the northeast it has been relentless. And now deadly the outbreak now in its twelfth straight day. More than fifty tornadoes reported in just the past. Thousand four hours this one right here in grant county, Indiana. Tonight, the devastating scene across Ohio. They have now confirmed multiple e of three tornadoes winds up to one hundred forty miles an hour. Look at this homes in Dayton, completely destroyed tonight, schools and businesses damaged to and all of this. As we also watch a flooding emergency unfold across several states as well. That home right there, sinking right into the river near crescent, Oklahoma again, tonight, millions bracing right now for severe storms, the warnings outside Philadelphia just a short time ago and Alex Perez lead us off from Dayton tonight. Tonight, a white knuckle commute for millions of those severe storms. Now moving east. If you live in these communities, you want to get in your safe place, immediately after a deadly tornado outbreak overnight, more than fifty twisters reported in eight states. The national weather service, declaring tornado emergency in the Dayton, Ohio area para flash clear on the ground tornado hit our house. We were just sitting here, the new life, worship center taking a direct hit it steeple completely ripped off twenty five people adults and children in the aftermath five there within five ten seconds. It goes from dead quiet to a jet engine taken off. The fire department breaking down doors with sledgehammers searching for people who may be trapped look out for your maters, if you haven't seen somebody that, you know, fleas give us a call. This is what's left of Troy story in Dayton, Ohio, one of the hardest hit areas you can see this heavy metal fence completely knocked over and over here, the metal roof of one building wrapped around this tree neighborhoods in the storm's aftermath, appearing apocalyptic multiple e af three twisters tearing through the area to sad side. Everybody's going through all their stuff. Can't can't even imagine in nearby Selena widespread damage eighty one year old man was killed when a car crashed into his house back in Dayton in feeding the kitchen, the dining room and what's left Tammy king, and her husband grateful to be alive. We grab each other how each other and just thank God that we were still hearing surviving the storm in there. Basement. We are thinking about all of those families tonight, Alex's live from Dayton, and Alex. We can see the home completely demolished behind you cruiser still working to try to get the power back on for so many people now picking up the pieces. Yeah. That's right. David, and people here have also been told they have to boil their water, but I want you to take a look around here. You can see the rage of this storm. This is what's left of brick house. There are bricks just about everywhere. You look and if you look here, that's the living room couch. It's now outside the long frustrating process of rebuilding is only just beginning. David, and now we know Alex, thank you. We know many are bracing for more tornadoes. We'll have that forecast in just a moment. But there is also a flooding emergency playing out across several states. Several bridges were closed today. Rivers rising ABC's wheel car tonight in sand springs, Oklahoma. He's outside Tulsa it a neighborhood underwater. David entire neighborhoods are under water tonight. We have seen hundreds of homes that are swamped and the Arkansas river is still going up. We're just downriver from the keystone dam, where they're releasing enough water to fill three Olympic sized swimming, both every second that's caused this flooding in Oklahoma. And in. Arkansas, where they had to close to bridges down today with more storms on the way this could be a historic disaster by the end of the week. David, watching the flooding as well we'll car, thank you. Let's get right to rob tonight who's watching all of this, and this urgent threat involving tornadoes across several states. Rob. Yes. David another night of expansive storm coverage, including some of the big cities here in New York. We'll get it in an hour, but I'm worried about folks to our south including Philadelphia. Here's a storm watch cross all of Pennsylvania, but there's a warning up for just to the south of Philadelphia. I'm worried about Chester worried about Wilmington, Scranton has a tornado warning as out as well. And they're getting rough in Pittsburgh back through Kansas City, look at the western flank this over twelve states under watches currently, and you'll see as we put things in emotion. The western part of this does not move much Chicago. Cincinnati overthrew, New York, Philly, and DC get another pulse of severe weather tomorrow night, and all these threats include damaging wind, scattered hail, and a few tornadoes and course more in the way of rain, for, which nobody really needs David, rob Marciano who's been storm chasing for days for us. Rob, thank you to other news tonight, there was a developing headline just before we came on the air tonight involving yet another security breach at mar-a-lago, while the president was in Florida. Here's our chief Justice correspondent Pierre Thomas tonight with late reporting tonight, a college freshman admits to legally getting into mar-a-lago resort. While the president was there last thanksgiving, telling the judge, according to the Palm Beach post are wanted to see her far. I could get apparently pretty far the post reporting that eighteen year old Mark Lindblom was arrested twenty minutes later after walking the grounds. Prosecutors say he came to a beach access tunnel and simply walked in, even though he's not a member. And although he went through a secret service metal detector, Lindblom breach is, again, raising questions about security when the president is at the resort in March another incident in mar-a-lago when a Chinese national was arrested after allegedly telling security that she was there to go to the swimming pool. Investigators charge her with lying to the secret service and entering a restricted space. They've prosecutors say the college freshman uses cellphone, to take photographs and video during his time at the resort that cell phone was later sees David Thomas with us live tonight as well. Peer, thank you next to the emergency on mount. Everest a second. American climber has died. After reaching the summit, eleven deaths there, and just the past ten days a record number of permits of an issue this season, creating essentially a traffic jams on the mountain delays that could threaten lives and tonight, our James Longman is in Nepal with new images than the chilling description of what an American climber witnessed tonight kale at the top of the world. This stunning new video shows that crush of climate struggling to summit Everest eleven now, dead in just ten days among them to Americans, including sixty two year old Chris coolish from Colorado fin American Ed during was on the same climb team as coolish and described a frenzy at the peak a space. He said was about the size of two ping pong tables, side-by-side. Several times was elbowed pushed aside, shoved by people who are just focused on getting their ideal picture, or getting a banner out that they could take a picture of it was scary because if you lose your footing potentially you're going to slide off some. Coolish and the first American victim. Utah native Don cash. Both died on their way down after successfully summited both were experienced climate. That's not the case for everyone too many inexperienced people around the mountain, not only are we having more people are climbing at the same time, but we have more and more people, I think, over the years that are climbing without the experience. They need during describing climbing around dead climb on his way to the summit, the record three hundred and Eighty-one permits have been issued to climb Everest this year and because of bad weather over two hundred people were forced to summit on one, good day for the traffic jams. Create an hour's long. Wait in what's called the death zone where a lack of oxygen and exhaustion test even the world's best climbers and James Longman reporting tonight from Kathmandu, Nepal and James the climber you interviewed there describing stepping around that dead climber? The jam of climbers slowing their descent from the top really just horrifying stories and people are going to ask. When they see the pictures you showed there tonight. Why are they allowing so many climbers at once? Well, David, there are more and more talk groups, offering lower and lower prices than those lines. You saw there caused in part by inexperienced climates unable to use complicated equipment that causes knows of people to wait behind them in dangerous conditions. David James Longman in Nepal force tonight James, thank you. President Trump is back at the White House tonight after a four day visit to Japan where he took aim it is twenty twenty rival. Joe Biden while on foreign soil the president agreeing with what Kim Jong UN had said about by tonight, Biden is now responding. And here's ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl in Japan Donald Trump not only ditched, the tradition of American presidents of voiding, partisan politics overseas. He said he agreed with an insult North Korean dictator Kim Jong Hoon directed at former vice president, Joe Biden, Kim Jong Lynn made a statement that Joe Biden is a low IQ individual. He probably is based on his record. I think I agree with them on that. And then. In standing next to the Japanese Prime minister, he added his own attacks on Biden, but in terms of criticism that you're sort of supporting dictator instead of an American vice president. But I can tell you that Joe Biden was a disaster. Find waited until Trump was back in Washington before responding is spokeswoman, issuing a statement, ten minutes after Air Force One landed. The president's comments are beneath the dignity of the office to be on foreign soil on Memorial Day and decide repeatedly with a murderous dictator against the fellow American, former vice president speaks for itself. The Biden campaign said it was part of a pattern of Trump's siding with autocrats in Japan. The president also said he wasn't concerned about North Korea's short-range missile tests earlier this month to reckless contradicting his own, national security team drawl by the small missiles, no, I'm not. I am personally John car with his tonight from the White House. And as you reported there. John a job. Saying these attacks are below the dignity of the office of the president. Is there any response from the president tonight? Well, I asked the president about those comments as soon as he got back here this afternoon to the White House no response, but just minutes ago David he was back on Twitter again insulting Joe Biden making no apologies for what he said in Japan. In fact, repeating almost word for word what he said about Biden back there. The twenty twenty races here giancarl, thank you. There are new developments tonight in the widening debate over abortion, in this country, Missouri's only abortion clinic could close Friday, because the state is threatening not to renew its licence Planned Parenthood. Which operates the clinic reports the state says it is investigating quote a large number of possible. Deficiencies it comes days after Missouri's governor signed a new law that bans abortions after eight weeks with no exceptions. And tonight. The supreme court has issued a two-part ruling on Indiana's antiabortion law, upholding its requirement that fetal remains be buried or cremated. But keeping in place, a lower court ruling. That blocked. The laws banning abortions motivated by race sex or disability of the fetus next tonight here to the alarming seen a lift driver attacked here in New York City by passenger. He was taking to the hospital. The man apparently angry. He wasn't driving fast enough. It is difficult to watch and there is an investigation. Now. Here's ABC's Linsey Davis. Call. It's about ten minutes, and impatient. Lived writer gets physical you'll night. He is wanted by police in this newly released, dash Cam video. You can see the man pummeling his driver at Montana. The driver picked up to passengers in New York City on Thursday. Please. Throughout the ride. The male passenger appears to be in pain complaining. They aren't getting to the hospital fast enough. In front of the car the front of the agitated passenger. Then curses at the driver, excuse me. Man, if you're going to be respectful, just pullover right now the physical confrontation lasts about a minute. Just before the male passenger flees on foot. He throws a punch through the driver's side window. I was trying to do my best to steer and just pull over as much as possible. Luckily, there was no pedestrians in the way the driver says he immediately called nine one one and filed a police report, lift tells us, they do not tolerate harassment or violence, and they have permanently banned that passenger from the platform investigation now underway, just awful video. All right. Lindsey, thank you. One more. High profile decision from the supreme court tonight, the justices choosing not to take up a challenge to Pennsylvania, school districts policy on transgender students, the effect of that decision is that the bulletin school district Forty-five miles from Philadelphia will continue to allow transgender students, their own choice of which bathrooms and locker rooms they will use.

Will Patriots continue AFC East reign? | Greg Bedard Patriots Podcast w/Nick Cattles

"All right, here it is drag. Yes, we've been waiting. I mean we've been waiting for a long time going through the mess that happened last six months now, we're ready for the football season. They actually have a Patriots game to talk about will get into that game against the Dolphins coming up on Sunday at Gillette Stadium before we do I remind you the graveyard Patriot's Day cast with Nick cattles is brought to you by our friends at bet u s support Boston Sports Journal by calling one eight hundred seventy-nine bet you get set up today. Be sure to tell them Boston Sports Journal sent you I guess we'll start with your official Patriots prediction for the 2020 season. You've got them at 10 and 6 tell us about it. Yeah, so I went through the internet is a great thing Nick. They have these they have these sites where you can go and sometimes the internet's great thing. That's not so much that is true. Just avoid Twitter so they had Sites where you can predict every single week of the NFL season. So I like to do that just to fool around and see what happens and I came out with 10 and 6 for the Patriots. I actually at one point and you can sort of gauge the standings as you're going. I have them at 4 and 6 at one point. Yeah, and they were a couple of games behind the bills and the AFC East. I think I I think I had them splitting the season series with the bills, but then they reeled off six straight wins another one in the playoffs over the Steelers. They lost to the I think it was the Chiefs game. And so that's where I came out and I and what's funny is that I went back and I looked at when the schedule was was released like everybody does I went through the wage schedule and just said, okay just for you know Giggles I'll go through it and I came out with 10:00 and 6 also now I will warn people Nick that I went through my history log. This works General. Com of predicting the Patriots season and I was one game too generous each of the past three years. So that would leave you to you know, 9874 us math Majors instead of the tenants say exactly and and I will say this I think that's significant because I think I think 9:00 and 7. I don't know if the 9 and Samsung is going to get the Patriots into the playoffs even even with the new format. Yeah. I I think the way I went through it. I think the AFC West I think I also had the Raiders were making it. I think they have a little bit of an easier schedule. I think the north has an easier schedule the South will beat beat each other up as normal so they will probably have a nine and Seventeen emerge. It might have a couple of teams right around there the Colts, you know, and what have you so you know, when once I saw that once I saw I had them at 10 and 6 I went back and I said, yep. Let me just see what happens if I do make them 9 and 7. So I changed the week 16 Showdown against the bills to a bills victory that made the bills the AFC East Champion in the Patriots were on the outside looking in very similar to 2008. The last time they did not have Tom Brady as they're starting starting quarterback. So, you know, I I think that's an accurate number. I think I think you know right around anywhere from 11:00 and 5 to 9 and 7. I am not one of these doom-and-gloom guys. Yes, they have issues. But that's negating all the other issues that all the other teams have an office in in the coaching advantage. And so, you know, I don't know I mean Nick do you think that that's being too optimistic or do you think that's yeah. I mean, I think again, I think the bottom of the barrel for this team is 9 and 7 and that's the premise is always that you're healthy. If you're healthy, then you'll be better than not right. So if this team is healthy including cam who's one of the most important guys on the team Obvious reasons if they're healthy across the board for most of this season, I don't think 9:00 and 7 is crazy. I don't think 10:00 and 6 is crazy. I think you start to feel a little bit too. Bullish. If you bring up 11 wins, which is what need an 08 when they got hosed and didn't get into the playoffs that year as luck would have it but I don't think 9:00 and 7 is outrageous. I don't think 10:00 and 6 is outrageous. I think they'll finish right around there as well. I think they'll finish at 10 and 6. I think they'll win the AFC East and this isn't necessarily all about the Patriots when I say they'll go ten and six this is also about the AFC and this is also about the divorce. I can see them easily split with Buffalo. I can see them win both games against the Jets. I can see them win both games against the Dolphins. Maybe they split down in Miami, but I think they can win all four games against the Jets and dolphins. And then now you're looking at 5 wins already. Can they can they put together five more wins in a season with Bill Belichick Josh McDaniels and a healthy Cam Newton. I think they can log. With the AFC being so thin Greg, I think they will get into the playoffs and I do think they'll end up winning the division. And again, that's not because I'm blowing smoke up the paths. I'm talking about the bills. Well, I just can't believe in Josh Allen man. And until I see him play consistent smart football, especially in big games. I just can't pick that guy to lead his team to winning a dog in anytime soon know I completely agree and and I do want to buy into the Dolphins a little bit with what Brian floors and and Chris Greer are doing down there those let me ask you about flaw because you obviously have intense knowledge about the guy you've talked to a lot of people around him. I'm sure you've spoken to him a number of times as well. How good can he be? Like how good do you think they're sealing could be with him as the head coach is this a guy that gets them through that first step and gets them to the playoffs or do you think hey his ceiling is somebody that could end up being a guy where he brings his team to the dance eventually if things are put together correctly. Yeah. It's a good question Nick and you know Flores is an interesting guy. I've had an interesting history faith in myself. He's a guy who he definitely knows what the media is writing and it's not really confront you about it. Yeah. In fact, he confronted me after the was the Super Bowl that they won. It was the 20 know. Was it the Seattle one? No, it was it must have been the Falcons Central it was whenever Patrick Chung first came back to the Patriots after going to the Eagles for like a season and and he came up to me if they just won the Superbowl mind you and I'm in the locker room for like five minutes and I feel this tap on my shoulder and I wrote this at PSJA wage. If people want the the the full story but basically the long story short is he was saying like I I didn't believe in them like, you know, we did it we proved you wrong and I was like, what are you talking about? I picked you to win the Superbowl to go to the Superbowl for the season. I picked you to win the Superbowl this week and I had to do with a comment that I made on felger & Mazz in training camp where I said a Patrick Chung's to start off safety on this team there going to be a disaster and he he wanted to confront me about that memory. He stored that in the back of his head and say, oh, yes, he Greg Bedard. I'm going down. Yeah the whole season and I said I said, oh now I remember I said I said, yeah, okay, you know I give you credit but you know, let's be honest Patrick Chung did not Public Safety for this team and he's like he I said he played linebacker. So he plays safety you play I was like come on Flow, you know, you know, it's good. But anyways, so he he is that type of guy I am Do you think that that sort of feeds into my thoughts about him? I think that I think that he knows how to motivate men. I think players love the play form one question. I have and you see this with a lot of defensive coaches is and we've already seen it. He's already he's in year two and he's on two different offensive coordinators and it's not like he got some young Hotshot which is probably he probably did it on purpose because and I'm sure we'll talk about this at some point down the road, but I think one of the master Strokes of Genius that that Belichick had in building his program that other people don't really think about is that Belichick's a defensive coach, but he said, you know what our playbooks our Playbook and Nick Saban did the same thing when I am in Miami Nick Saban, he had Scott Linehan as his offensive coordinator his first year and Linehan left became the Vikings head coach, but he said we're keeping the Playbook and song. There's not a lot of you know, you're not changing terminology and all this stuff every year. It's one Patriots offensive Playbook and already they went from chatous the Patriots Playbook now, they're going to Chin gaily. He probably picked Chan Gailey because he's older and it's not like he's going to get a head coaching job. Whereas you pick one of these Hotshot kids. And as soon as they put up as soon as they put up 35 points game. They get a head coaching job. Now, you're Todd mcveigh's of the world to Matt lafleur's of the world those guys. Yeah. And so I think I think Forrest did that on purpose but also, you know, it's it's tough sell. I mean Chan Gailey hasn't been an NFL offensive coordinator since the 2015 2016 Jets and you know, he used to be one of the the innovators on offense. Now, you know, you gotta think that the game is maybe passed them by a little bit offensively. It's just gone to a different level can he do that? And and if he doesn't if he's not the right guy for two of what are they going to page? Somebody else with a different Playbook. So I think in many regards I think that Flores has a high ceiling as a head coach. I think he's already seen you're already seeing some of the you know, maybe we took this is or blind spots that often defensive coaches have and so that's that's sort of the question that I have and and we see this with a lot of coaches. I mean, even you know Harbaugh in Baltimore was stung in the dark, you know, basically on the border of being fired. Yeah recently until he stumbled into Greg Roman who who rescued him from Marty mornhinweg and that didn't change the Baltimore offense and figured out a way to get the most out of Lamar Jackson. Yep brought in Mark Ingram who was a perfect compliment in that backfield. They made Mark Andrews. One of the top tight ends in the league office. So I mean Roman absolutely I think change the trajectory of where horrible was going because up until that point the last four or five years. He was a 500 Coach. He didn't have a ton of success in the playoffs, you know speaking of coaching no job. Looking at the rundown that you sent me tonight Greg and you you have written down here that Bill Belichick is your coach of the year. Yeah. I just you know when I looked at it when you think about Tom Brady's Kong all the Cove it off doubts let alone the feels like it was a year ago. By the way, the Cova. Doubts was a year ago. I know but they also, you know all the guys get lost in free agency some of whom Bill C on Sunday with the dolphins. You know, I just think if Bill Belichick can go ten and six I think this is going to I think the way it came out for me four and six I do think they're going to start slow with all the changes but and then I do think they're going to get hot and I think that Belichick's guy he's he's wanting 2003, you know? Okay, I don't really remember the song stances with that team. I mean they were just one year away from winning the Superbowl. They didn't make the playoffs in 2000 to 2007. We all know about 2010 was a, you know, great coaching job. I thought it 2011 wage. Is a much better coaching job and I just think that Belichick doesn't get his do and I think that the circumstances is here. If Mick there is never been a season when the Patriots have been more ripe for the taking and this year and in Belichick finds a way to win the division again, first of all, I think Sean McDermott might just jump off a bridge in Buffalo boss. I just think that he should be honored for that and be much more impressive than say Mike McCarthy taking over the Cowboys not really doing a whole lot. I mean what improving them like a game or two? I mean, yeah, 8:10 and 6 would be a one-game slide, but in terms of the the difference in the team, yeah, it would be a very impressive season to me. Yeah, and you brought up the idea of I do feel like there's a lot of people out there down playing the Patriots this year doubting them even locally. You see people talking about six wins and seven wins, and there's not a lot expected I think from home. People with this team even from fans that I see on Twitter tweeting about this team not really believing that they're going to be a playoff team or you know, if they get to the playoffs it's luck and then they're going to fall apart home. But what I do find intriguing about this season Greg and I actually find it exciting and I'm trying to learn to embrace. This is the unpredictability. Yes, it's great what Bill Belichick and Tom Brady were able to put together and the two-decade run that they had was terrific but as a media member as a sports talk show host as a fan of the Patriots. You knew what to expect you knew precisely what this team is going to look like for the most part especially on offense in what I'm excited about this year is there's a lot of new feelings going on here. Like I don't know what to expect necessarily from Cam Newton. I can tell you what my expectations are. I don't know if he's going to fulfill those expectations, you know as Damien Harris going to become the guy in the back field is n'keal Harry going to show up and down. Consistent number two receiver behind Adelman. What's the young tight ends look like there's there's so many questions. I actually find this team very intriguing cuz I don't think we have any idea what this team is going to look like and that is something that we haven't gone through in a couple of decades with this team aside from obviously when Brady blew his ACL out. That's really the last time you said. Okay. Well, what is this going to look? Like? How can they adjust? What are they going to do? Can they be successful? Yeah. I think I think overall I think in all sorts of different regards to life. I think that change is good. It's reinvigorating and look I didn't grow up a Patriots fan even though from I'm from around here actually grew up with dolphins fan quite the coincidence. Hey, Jose Mourinho was my guy. What can I say? And but but I agree with that I will say that, you know, my whole family all my high school buddies from lincoln-sudbury, they all huge Patriots fans, and yep. I will say that, you know the past couple of years some of them have remark to me about like, you know, hey, maybe Brady should retire or you know move on just to you know, something different. I know there are patriots nice out there think that's you know sacrilege those crazy right now. Yeah, I mean you you had a great for so long. Why would you give that up until it dies on the line? And you know, I could just see you know, it just bought something different. I mean cuz pretty much every Patriot season has been the same it's been great, but I'm interested to see if Belichick can be great in a different way with a totally different quarterback and and then you know, we all know that Bill Belichick's one of the greatest ever but you know, Joe Gibbs one multiple Super Bowls with other quarterbacks coach Parcells. Did you know there have been other other coaches that have done it and I you know, I want to see if Belichick can do it. I think I think you can in these waning years and so I I mm. I'm excited to see it even though I didn't hate watching Tom every week. No. No, I didn't hate it either and I think it's a delicate balance, right? You want to make sure that you say hey, I enjoyed the heck out of the last twenty years ever. There is a bit of an energy. There is a bit of an excitement about this team and I think when you look at the energy of Cam, it's kind of funny. I think some fans have that kind of energy. They want to embrace that they want to feel something different and them to see how this all looks on Sunday. We're going to be Sunday before we get to a Superbowl over the place celebration. I'm fine with it. Superman said as long as you're producing and you're winning Superman all the time, I was fine with it. Well it in Carolina. I have no issue with that kind of stuff right before we get to a Josh at interview that yeah. I do want to ask you about a couple of things with this game coming up on Sunday. First of all three rookie starters on the offensive line. What's that going to look like? Yeah. There are a ton of changes with the dolphins. And actually I haven't even sorted through them on both sides of the ball. They have new place faces all over the place. I think all of them. Factors in and plays in with the dolphins and actually so they have Austin Jackson the first round pick he's yep. We're going to start at left tackle Solomon Kinley at guard and also Robert hunt at right tackle. So those are three rookies plus you have Eric flowers who was a disaster as a a tackle at the Giants. You have steadied headache Harris, you know, love you mean it Teddy birth was, you know did a nice job a solid job last year replacing Andrews, but and he's he's he's a captain in his first year so our land and Robertson, Illinois, but you know good pass-blocker not the greatest of of run guys, but I think you know for week one in knowing that your defense is going to be ahead of your office. I don't think Belichick could dream up a better scenario than you know, yes, Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to be an issue has been an issue for this team. They certainly have talent but with the Patriots doing all their sort of Amitabh And different stunts and twists and bringing linebackers and bringing safety's I think basically Bill Belichick wants to have those those rookies. They're basically their heads spinning by about Midway through the first quarter and I think that plays right into the Patriots and gives them a big Advantage another another thing about this game. That's interesting. And you know, I agree with you that young offensive or not too concerned about Fitzpatrick. I know he's had some pretty decent games against New England and he's done pretty well against Belichick All Things Considered, of course, it's always relative and we're talking about Belichick and his record against quarterbacks. It said I'm not too worried. I just I believe in this secondary. I think they're Elite and I'm not too concerned about Fitzpatrick putting up as much as they can now, it is interesting, you know, Stephon Gilmore. He pops up on the injury report. You know, what's that going to look like hamstring soft tissue kind of deal. We have to be ready for that this season. You never know. You can have a lot of guys that probably pop up on on the injury report with some juice. So we'll see the other part of this though. We already talked about Shane gaily the new offense of coordinator. But you know, you you have down here that Miami had the League's third-highest man coverage rate at 46% you think life is crucial with cans debut coming up on Sunday. Absolutely and I think this this sort of all folds into the biggest factor, I haven't all this and when you look back at home, whether it's Brian Flores last year beating the Patriots and week 17 Eric Mangini back when he's with the Browns Matt Patricia, the last time the Patriots played the Lions up there and you know, I got the snot kicked out of them by Patricia's defense these defensive coaches that have left the Patriots and have gone against the Patriots. They've sort of had the formula like they've gone against the offense they've gone against they know are you see this motion they're going to do this if we give them this look this is what they're going to take now with Cam. It's complete that that is completely off the table and I think dead. One thing when I started looking back at that week 17 game last week because I wanted to see all right. Well, they played them this way with Tom. How are they going to play in with Cam and what jumps off the page is dead. They are stacking the box and they are man to man and they are basically saying like go ahead Tom try to beat us with whatever they had out there and week 17 and finishing the receivers right punishing receivers making them, you know, trying to force them to separate and and be physical and try to make plays on their own and it usually did not work out. Well, yeah, it didn't work out but the thing is and we've talked about it before with Cam Newton floors can't do that. He can't go man pressure man pressure all the time 46% of the time probably in that game against the Patriots. I wouldn't be surprised if it was 70% off the amount. They played man in that game. They can't do it because if you play Man coverage on the outside and say the Patriots say in a lot of in their playbook they say, all right, if you see man covers wage You're converting to a vertical or whatever you got receiver is running down the field those cornerbacks turn their back Cam Newton sees that all of a sudden he turns it turns the corners ten fifteen yards easy so far as can't do what he wants to do and you combine the not being able to play Man coverage with floors no longer having the secret sauce and how to stop this Patriots offense took me. It plays right into the hands of Josh McDaniels and you gotta think like this is a time where you know, Josh is sort of been on the short end going against some of these guys now all of a sudden he has the advantage cuz he knows what he can do. Those other guys have no idea. Yeah a very intriguing situation this year to me is Josh McDaniels and there seems to be a lot of I don't know if it's pressure. I I would probably say it's pressure these expectations of oh he's going to do something funky. He's going to do something different. He finally has a guy that is more 2020 than you know, mm like he had with Brady dead. And Brady obviously again the disclaimer that we got to throw out there. He's obviously great greatest of all-time etcetera etcetera, but he played a game, you know, he played the game a certain way. And now you have somebody who brings a lot of different appointments to the field and Cam and it is going to be fascinating. It's going to be compelling to see how that all comes together with McDaniels before we get to the Joe schad interview. And of course we get the Boston Sports Journal com member of cross the day tell us about bet u s Greg. Yeah. Listen up Sports Bettors.

Let's go to the Joe schad interview with you Greg home. Back back after that and and give you all the Boston Sports Journal, member question of the day. We are bringing our popular on the beat. Section of Boston Sports channel cam to the podcast and the video this time around this is when we like to check in with a beat writer one of our old buddies from the team that they're playing a game of get the lowdown on the team and I'm very excited in this is actually you know, it's it's I would say it's fitting that Joe schad is the first person to be featured in Joe if you guys don't know Joe was actually my first beat partner on the Dolphins at the Palm Beach Post Jose at the Palm Beach Post still and after going to ESPN and doing great college football game up there, but welcome Joe and it's it's hard to believe. Let's see that was two thousand and four. I think it was four. Yeah. I covered covered the team the first time photo studio for so Dave wants that Nick Saban arrived and I left just in time just in time and I had been here at the Nick Saban Cam Cameron crap, but I God Say in this holds true no matter where I've been Palm Beach Post Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the globe Sports Illustrated everywhere. Joe schad is probably the best beat reporter that I have ever been around. I don't think I I certainly learned a lot from bottom again and Tom silver sign in in Milwaukee, but Joe showing me the ropes and what it what it means and what you need to do to be a beat writer in the NFL. I mean, it was a it was a rude awakening it it certainly whip me into shape and and certainly contributed to my career doing this. So thank you for that Joe. Thank you. So let's let's dive into this question. Number one is I think Patriots fans want to know they want an update on the Patriots that signed with thousands in the offseason. Kyle Van Noy elandon Roberts Ted Karras, you know, Eric Rowe is there I think a year before. Can you give us sort of an update issue? On how those guys to fit in and what kind of role do you see them having this Sunday against their former team, you know, it's interesting Greg. Kyle Van Noy was voted a captain by his teammates off ahead of Jerome Baker who gets pushed aside. He was a captain last year a Landon Roberts also voted a captain and these guys, you know, haven't been here long at all. Ted Karras also was going to be a key contributor. So all three guys that made fabulous First Impressions the Dolphins need Vannoy who will play on Sunday with a soft cast on an a hand to lead the team in sacks this year. That is what is the calling for him on and Roberts is really been a vocal enforcer type in Camp surprised me with how often aggressive and easy a stick and and and just mean he actually dolphins need that but I didn't know that that's what the Dolphins were getting. This. Robert guy is like he's dead. Yeah, like a fighter a knocky he he'd go around the ice looking to take someone's head off. And so he's going to be in on you know, run run packages. They'll go with, with another former Patriot. Yep on the passing downs, but forgot about him seven former Patriots players for former Patriots coaches. So 11:00 here. You guys only have one that's a consultant of some sort. So not a lot of dolphins going to Patriots lands and take care of stays the Dolphins hope that he'll be an improvement over Daniel Kilgore who was you know a good leader last year, but she really pushed around in the trenches the Dolphins figure to be Greg twenty pounds or more per man along the offensive line added some huge people. And so I'm going to try to run the football they were the worst team in the NFL by far rushing football last year, but they think that with Jordan Howard Matt breida and for new offensive line off All of whom are huge huge. They they think they can actually move people this year. That would be nice for a change. They've been so bad on the line. I got to tell you if Rob was one of my favorite players in the Patriots locker room and like in dog and he was one guy who would it's too bad. You don't get to be faced with face-to-face for them in the locker room, right? Yeah, probably not. He's more of an in-person guy and he's not afraid I will tell me that he's not afraid to call out media members and he knows what you're writing and I think Brian Brian Flores in Roberts have a unique relationship where I think floors tries to push his buttons. In fact, I remember one time. I talked about one training camp a couple of years ago. I talked about how Roberts could be on the cutting block and someone probably Brian Flores snapshot of it and send it to Robert's and he showed it to me in the locker room. And so he's got he's got a lot of he's got a lot of bite. He's also the same guy that said when he played fullback last year that he wage Knock em, effort faces off and and and things like that. So yeah, he is he's unique Teddy Charis is just a great guy, you know, good-good big strong pass-blocker, but not the fleet of foot in the Run game that was an issue for the Patriots. But you know, maybe the Run game will be different. And actually that's the second question I had for you. So, you know, we know Chad O'Shea was there with the dolphins came in here and kicked the crap out of the best defense in in the NFL last year when the Patriots needed a win Chad Chad O'Shea gets fired most likely because they needed a dumb things down because they're it's a rebuilding team with a Young quarterback with to a who's going to be a starter eventually. But so they bring back Chan Gailey do I think I think you and I he might have been on the Dolphins off the first time around back when we covered the team. What have you seen out of this offense and how different what what are the differences going to be from what we saw last year maybe in week 7 a.m. Man, honestly, it's hard to tell we've had no pre-season and we did watch some summer practices, but you don't see a ton of scheme stuff. I mean, I think they're going to try to log in on the strength of their players. You know, I think you're going to see Ryan Fitzpatrick still taking some shots downfield to Preston Williams and DeVante Parker. I think you're going to see a minimizing of the importance of em tight end position which means fewer catches fewer opportunities from Mike gesicki with somewhat of a fantasy darling for some of those fantasy football. Gurus. I don't see it off. I think they're really going to try to go a lot of a lot of power and when to a gets in there, they're going to lean on his strengths and I'm you know, maybe that's somewhere in November. You'll see a ton of walk ins and outs Slants and outs. It's going to be a quick throwing offense, but I think fits that just going to let Fitz do with Fitz wants to do, you know at the end of last season dead. The Dolphins basically admitted that fits had taken over the offense. He was deciding what to call and and he was telling his players what was best for the offense. So that decision to get rid of O'Shea was likely made prior to that upset. You know, I think probably when they're all in seven flow started thinking about a change. Yeah, it's it'll be interesting to see them because I was looking back at it today. And the last time that the Patriots saw chain Gilly was with the Jets in 2016 and Fitzpatrick was his quarterback and you know, I'm sure you've already got fired after that season that was bowls was there but they only managed 20 points total and two matchups against the Patriots. So it'll be interesting to see how they attacked him. Third question I have for you is just sort of what's the what's the vibe? We know last year was everybody's talking about them rebuilding. What's the vibe around the team do they think they could log? Be a surprise team in the AFC East or or and what's your opinion? Do you think they're you know a distant third which is the way I see them but I do think look I think a lot of floors and I think a lot of the way him and Chris career-building esteem and I think they could surprise some teams this year. Yeah much better Vibe. You remember was about a week before last season that the Dolphins waved the White Flag sending laremy tunsil and Cocktails away. Yeah and that about a week into the season they traded minkah Fitzpatrick. So it was clear that this thing was being torn down to the studs. And while there were a lot of undrafted rookie free agents who are ready to give their Blood Sweat and Tears to everything Ryan Fitzpatrick. He's essentially an associate head coach everything Brian Flores and his staff were asking there were a few veterans like a Richard Jones who would soon be shut down and sent away who were like really like we have no chance. Are you kidding me this year at least Brian Flores has a chance with the addition of 11 dram. Voices a multitude of key free agents including Vannoy and Byron Jones Greg. I picked the Dolphins to go 7 to 9. It's interesting. You see ESPN pick them at 4 and 12. You see her King picked him at 10 and 6. So there's a huge disparity in terms of predictions. I think 7 to 9, probably more seven or eight is a positive step in the right direction and then it's next year. But the Dolphins try to seize control of the AFC East question number for that I had for you is look the weather. It's the draft or from a to see a lot of changes with the dolphins this year and even in the coaching staff like we talked about with gaily give me one guy on each side of the ball who Patriots fans really, you know, that might pop come Sunday. Well, let's see. You know Malcolm Perry is a gadget player. He was a quarterback in Navy he can play running back and slobbers receiver. I can't say with certainty that he's going to dress on some day. I use a seventh-round draft choice and told us that bill check was very interested. He actually said he spent most of his time with baggage check and the Patriots prior to the draft. So we'll see if we can make an impact at receiver maybe all over the field. And then also if you can make a an impact in a return game from a pass-rush perspective, you know, the Dolphins got no pressure last year at all. They were among the worst teams in the league the loss of Vince Biegel to a season-ending injury certainly hurts on this guy named Andrew van ginkel spent most of last season on injured reserve. He was a late-round draft choice out of Wisconsin. He's look quite good job. He's stronger. He's faster. I think that van ginkel is a guy who might take on some of the rule that vehicle left due to the injury. Okay last question I have for you. What's your pick for this weekend? And an addendum to this do you think we'll see two at all for a series come Sunday? I do not think the Dolphins will use to it unless necessary. Obviously, they believe that you know, he can play in an emergency. Otherwise, they wouldn't have cut Josh Rosen but I still think in an ideal situation. This team doesn't get turned over to 2 until November. So you have 1-year separation between that serious hip injury and off and playing that the average top 10 quarterback is over the last ten years makes his debut and week for so if the Dolphins are off to a known three start, there's going to be tremendous pressure gauge. I can tell you Brian Flores doesn't give a shit. Yeah. I say that he doesn't I rarely use cuss words that I really wanted to emphasize that you know, they went after him at the end of last year for not playing Josh Rosen with three and eleven record. He put me in my place. He said, you know, you are not in the trenches with us and basically led me to understand. And the Josh Rosen was never going to be in the trenches with them. And so, you know, sometimes it's good to push a guy like coach Flores, you know, cuz he's not used to that and I think he he kind of revealing a little bit thereof of honesty, but I did think the Patriots to win on Sunday by touchdown think they're six and half Point favorite slash check, you know Vegas knows and uh, you know, I would not be surprised at all. The Gap is clearly closed between the Dolphins and the Patriots, you know, the talent level is not dissimilar. The reason I picked the Patriots is I think they're going to have a hard time handling Cam Newton's running and but more than anything. I think that Bill Belichick will find a way to exploit the three rookie starters for the Dolphins one at left tackle one of my life guard and potentially want a corner. I just found a Belichick will find a way to exploit those youngsters. Yeah. I just checked bet u s.com and it is still 6 a.m. Half I haven't made my full pic but I think I am going to I think I'm going to take the points with this one as well. Just cuz I mean, I think in my advice for the Dolphins is dead. They did last year getting a track meet with these guys cuz I think uh, from what we saw in training camp these Patriots. They need to lead they need to play ball control. They need can to be a factor in the running game. If they he's not going to win, you know, many 45 to 50 shootouts. That's for sure. And so I'm going to go with the Patriots probably by you know, seven as well might get up to 10 by the time I'm done with it but uh lot to see what happens. But hey, thanks buddy. Thanks for joining me on this. I'm looking forward to seeing you socially distance in the Foxboro Press Box on on Monday. And here we go another season. We made it good to see you. All right. It's time for the Boston Sports channel, member question of the day Greg. Check out b s job. For $0.11 a day, that's it eleven cents a day. It's obnoxiously cheap on their annual plan. I'm actually part of the I've been the annual plan guy. So there's some very beginning the boss Sports channel that's before Greg asked me to do this lovely podcast with him. You have access to Greg. You've got access to Sean McAdam my guy be Rob, Ryan. Dr. Jessica Flynn many more to come down the road here Boston Sports coverage the way you remember it. No clickbait. No BS no politics straight up top notch analysis of your teams from a team and company. That is all New England off our Boston Sports channel member question of the day Greg comes from Bad Axe 33. Maybe it's a Larry Bird fan. Maybe is a Kevin Faulk fan. I could tell you he's very active in our daily Q&A as he's off. He's all over my case. He's pepper me with questions. All right. Well good job solid job out of Bad Axe thirty-three Gregg. I know you talked about how poured the passing offense was in the sessions that you watched. However, could the reason be our wage? The Box are just so good. Like you said even Ross and Brian are good Duggar a rookie was very good early as well. So how much when you look at this offense the passing game struggles Greg, how much do you credit the defense versus how much you actually look at the offense and go they're just not good certainly a little, you know, Nick I just think that God I certainly had been watching football for for a while. So I I like to think that I know the difference and look you have to give the Patriots secondary a ton of credit app i m a r they're spectacular. I mean even like bad accent. I mean DeAngelo Ross and Miles Bryant are two guys that were released. I'm not sure if they're back on the practice squad. I can't remember our thoughts had but two kids who really did a nice job in Camp and made plays and and they were just so deep in the secondary and so yes, they deserve a lot of Chrome. They make things a lot tougher that being said you still should see flashes of big plays in the in the passing game. Those were few and far between much lower than any other training camp. I've been to Across The League, I think also I look at Cam Newton's sort of processing the game and it's on the slow side. And that is one of my big worries with Cam. It has been watching him in the past is you'll watch him on coaches film Nick and you'll say you'll even see the carbs which way it's going be like, okay. Well this guy's going to be open and like, you know, three step drop boom get it out and he's like three step hesitate then get it out. And so we saw a lot of that on the practice field is not very clean because is it because that's just a weakness of his is it that he's trying to learn the offense and it's not quite going quick enough in his head. Is it because he's trying to be too perfect because he's knows there's a dog Pressure on him and that he's got to prove to the football world that he's still a starting kind of franchise quarterback, or is it a combination of all those things? Like how do you feel how do you feel about his kind of mental about the game is football IQ and how he reads things when you look back at his past and and what you saw a can yeah, I I I want to say it's all of those things Nick. I just think that way he's a guy and you gotta remember this is a kid who played it Auburn under Gus Malzahn and that is one of the simplest College offenses that you'll ever see everything pretty much dictated for the quarterback. So that's sort of his base. Urban Meyer wasn't whole lot different when cam was originally recruited the University of Florida. The Panthers have never had a sophisticated passing game, you know, even with Norv Turner, they didn't make it very hard, but I just think it's I think it's cam Nick what you have most of the time with quarterbacks. You will see their birth. Anticipation throwers or they're they're see it and throw it type of quarterbacks and and the differences is guys read the coverages and they anticipate guys through being open. They throw spots in instead of throwing just to the receiver even Brady Brady wasn't that much of an anticipation thrower, but he knew where to place the ball cam. I think is more towards Brady in that regard in terms of he will hit spots and he is careful about where he puts the ball, but I just think that this has been a shortcoming of his home. I expect Josh McDaniels to bake that into the Patriots offense where he doesn't have to survey too much. He'll give him more half-filled reads so they can play a little bit faster, but it is definitely a concern going into this season and it just wasn't the Patriots great secondary. All right, let's go to the pit. Come pick em game for coming up on Sunday from the both of us. Thanks to age. U.s. And then bet u s is lying on the game. You mentioned this a little bit earlier Greg the Patriots -6 1/2. The over-under is 42. What would you tell the people that do here? Well, let's see. I I just think. I just think the Patriots being at home. They have less new parts. They certainly have a lot of new parts that need to be broken in. I just think this place to the Patriots Advantage I do home and like we talked about I think that the Flores knowing the secret sauce to the Patriots offense that is completely out the window now, so it's a completely different matchup between a former Belichick defense people and the Patriots and so for that reason, I I'm taking I'm taking the points. I'm going I'm going over that. I think the Patriots win 27th. 1727 17 which would put you at the 44 over the 42 it would mean that you lay the point you give Miami the 6 and 1/2 and you know, I think looking at this season it's so tough, especially in week one trying to figure out who's going to win and especially when you talk about spreads. I do think that things should be a little funky and sloppy early on I just feel like I'd go with the under here just because of the first week no preseason. No joint practices. Like you said, there's a lot of newness. You've got three rookies on the Miami offensive line. You've got all the things that New England's trying to figure out McDaniels and cam all that kind of stuff. So I'd go with the under but I also think the Patriots will cover here might be a late cover, but I just think it's Patrick against this Elite secondary. I do think like you mentioned earlier on in the podcast that because of that young offensive line with Miami Belichick's going to mess around with those guys going to screw around move some guys off. Before the snap and you know, I could see something like I don't know I could see 1710 I could see 2113 something in that area and where it would be below the age forty-two but the Patriots still cover so but I'm pretty confident that they will win week one and get off to a pretty decent start all things considering. Yeah, I think so too. I think this this is a really good opponent for the Patriots in week one the Dolphins. I think they're they're certainly on their way up. They are more talented than they have been. I think they're going to be a better a much tougher match up in the second half of the Season especially if to a is out there and part of the mix. I don't think he's going to be in the mix in week one not even 4-series. I think it's too early for that. But I think that this is a this is a really good soft opener for the Patriots. They need it but you know, look the one thing they can't do they can't get many shootouts and Fitzpatrick likes to do that. He lived. Get shotgun empty just let it go. That's where the secondary comes into play and and the Patriots are going to need that secondary to be the best in the league for them to get a win on Sunday and it'll be interesting because of course the lifetime Parker played against Gilmore things did not work out. So well noticed the van Gilmore so he's got something to prove. I think he's got a little bit of a chip. Of course. He showed up again on the injury report will see if he's even out their package has been banged up. We'll see how he looks a lot of unpredictability about the 2020 football season, but Greg and I we will be here throughout its entirety. We both like the Patriots coming up on Sunday 1:00 at Gillette Stadium. The dog has them at 10 and 6. I pretty much have them at 10 and 6 as well. We feel I think pretty similar about this football team heading into the Year everybody. Enjoy the football weekend. Enjoy Patriots. Dolphins will be back early next week. See if we were right see if we were wrong what happened in this game and then of course, maybe a little look ahead to what's coming up in week 2 till then it is the Greg Bedard Patriots podcast with Nick cattles. That's my last name. A catalyst I mean come on drive a. Nick cattles sponsored by Bette us check them out at one. 879 us.

Okeechobee Hurricane Pt. 1

"On September Twelfth Nineteen Twenty eight forty two year old. Henry Martin noticed a brief warning at the bottom of Florida's Florida's Palm Beach Post a tropical disturbance had formed out in the Atlantic Ocean. No one knew where the storm was heading but there was a chance it could hit the mainland. If it did Henry's farm on the shores of Lake Okeechobee could be endanger. The massive body of water was prone prone to floods but he didn't pay the storm warning much mind Henry and his family had toughed it out through many storms before and they could do it again. At least that's what he thought. Five thousand miles away. A wave of super heated air blasted off from the hot Saharan Desert in Africa. The breeze blew westward. Across the warm ocean waters moisture began to rapidly evaporate as the air pressure dropped the beginnings things of a tropical depression and it was gaining power fast. Soon it would make its way across the Ocean to Florida Henry Martin and the other residents of Belle glade had no idea that in just four days time their lives would be forever changed and their town would be completely destroyed.

And if you enjoy today's episode the best way to help us is to leave a five star review wherever you are listening. It really does help nope. This is our first of two episodes on the OCA- jobe hurricane of nineteen twenty eight. It was one of the deadliest storms ever recorded in the North Atlantic Basin Jason causing widespread damage economic loss and countless deaths across south Florida and the Caribbean. This week will explore the region around Lake Okeechobee and track the hurricane from its origin in the Atlantic. All the way to its unexpected arrival on the Florida coast next week. We'll I'll stick with the hurricane as it surprises the townspeople of Belle glade. We'll follow along as a resident struggle to survive and examine. The complexities is an hardships. Faced in the aftermath of the disaster Henry Martin was a Tall well-built man with deeply lined face as a native of Fort Meade Florida. He was an expert on best farming practices in the region and how to manage flood ridden fields in one thousand nine hundred nineteen when Henry was thirty three. He made the approximately eighty mile journey from fort. Meade D- visit his brother near Lake Okeechobee. When he arrived at the lake? Henry couldn't believe his eyes. If he didn't know it was landlocked he might have believed. It was an ocean named by the native seminole people. Okeechobee means the big water and big water. It was around seven hundred thirty square miles in size lake. Okeechobee is the seventh largest freshwater lake in the United States. It's so big big that it can easily be seen from space. It's also extremely shallow. Averaging about nine feet deep this means that during heavy rains the lake tends to overflow and flood the surrounding low lying fields just like the hurricanes in the sky above. It's hard to predict where the waters of Okeechobee. You will flow next. But when the flooding recedes it leaves behind a rich blackened field of soil when Henry Martin saw this enriched earth Earth back in one thousand nine hundred nineteen he could practically feel the dollar bills filling his pocket. He knew if he moved his family to Lake Okeechobee. He'd be hitting literal pay. Hey dirt two years later he bought some land and got things settled for the rest of his family. While Henry he was a family man through and through he was a Gambler at heart. And the move to Okeechobee. Was the biggest wager of his life blinded by the potential windfall. He didn't consider the disadvantages of farming near such an unpredictable body of water he'd be at the mercy of tropical storms and their accompanying floods. This oversight would prove fatal when one of the deadliest hurricanes of all time came swinging. Right right into Henry's backyard but for the moment the future was looking bright by nineteen twenty-three Henry's new farm was established and the rest of his family was ready to join him. Henry's wife Bessie. Mae was used to her husband getting excited aided about his business endeavors but she wasn't so sure about the move as they headed towards their new home. They cram themselves into a boat to cross the lake looking out over the comb shallow waters Bessie may felt a pit in her stomach. Something about the vast lake meter nervous. But she tried to shake the feeling as they arrived at their stilt-supported farmhouse most of the properties around the lake were built on stilts because of the periodic flooding leading. Bessie Mae was Florida born and raised. She was familiar with the areas heavy rains and flooding and she'd always believe that building houses so close host. The lake seemed to be tempting fate. Putting houses on stilts wasn't the only safety precaution against flooding a dyke or earthen barrier barrier was built around the lakes edge rising a few feet above the shore. The dike would keep. The House is safe. If the water level raised in case the lake did overflow a new new system of irrigation pumps worked around the clock to pump water out of the field and yet bessie May. Martin still wasn't convinced their new house. This would be safe however she loved her husband and she didn't WanNa Dash Henry's dreams. What's more the kids? Were all excited about the move. Except for seven year old Thelma Martin who had a terrible fear of water. According to her father Henry hard work honor and faith or the three the most important traits a person could exhibit. He wasn't going to let anything. Not even some flooding stop him from achieving success. There was no time to think about potential dangers. He had a business to run and the harvest was fast approaching but even with his family helping. Am Henry needed more workers. He found them in. The form of Caribbean migrants. Like many of the people who came to America the workers were in in search of a better life but that was easier said than done while Henry Martin treated his workers with respect and gave them decent pay. He was the exception to the norm. Most of the time non white migrants were forced to work for meager wages and had to live in squalid conditions in nineteen twenty-three Florida was highly segregated. Memories from the civil war still lingered and racial tension was rife in lake. Okeechobee whites lived lived in the quality housing in the nice section of town while black people and other minorities were relegated to living an isolated shantytowns. These these poorly built homes wouldn't stand a chance in the face of a powerful storm but the people living in them didn't have the luxury of planning for the future. They had to worry about simply getting through each day for a while they were able to get by without any major issues. When the rains got heavy the dike was able to keep the lake from overflowing flowing that false sense of security brought even more people down to Lake Okeechobee? Fertile shores throughout the early nineteen twenties these people flocked from the north to seek their fortunes in the sunshine. State the warm weather easygoing lifestyle and financial opportunities. Were extremely gramley attractive to people looking for a new start. New towns farms and building projects were popping up throughout Florida. The rich fertile soil surrounding rounding Lake Okeechobee was a huge draw to farmers like Henry. Martin soon a bustling economy had sprouted all along the lake's shores. An all that stood between the city and destruction was a modest earthen dike and before too long it would face. Its first real test. Coming up the defenses around Lake Oak Jobe get put through their paces. Hi It's Kate. I can't wait for you to check out our casts newest series.

Despite the danger posed by storms and flooding Florida's new towns were booming in the nineteen twenties with some of the most fertile land in the state date people were descending on Lake Okeechobee to build farms and seek their fortunes among them was Florida Native Henry Martin whose family arrived in Lake Okeechobee in nineteen twenty-three the Martin's land occupied stretch between the lake southern shore in the Florida everglades. It was full of rich soil. Ripe for planting and Ripe for Disaster In September nineteen twenty six a category gory for hurricane barreled through Miami surprising. It's unprepared residents we the winds at a minimum of one hundred thirty miles per hour. It's hard to imagine how such a powerful storm could have arrived so unexpectedly but at the time there wasn't much in the way of weather tracking technology eighty most storm reports were based on eyewitness accounts alone for the Nineteen Twenty six hurricane. Miami based forecaster. Richard Gray predicted the fast fast. Moving storm would sidestep Florida believing they were safe. People weren't ready when the hurricane hit the city. The destruction in Miami was catastrophic at a strategic entire buildings were destroyed. Three hundred seventy two lives were lost with another eight hundred. Eleven reported missing over forty. Three thousand people were left homeless and hopeless. The damage was even worse up the coast along Lake Okeechobee. As the hurricane hurled up the Florida peninsula powerful winds blew in all directions. Heavy rain pounded the ground and the dike surrounding the lake. Karuk sending floodwaters surging into town. Although the storm caused a lot of damage to his fields Henry Martin's property wasn't permanently they ruined. Luckily the wind direction had kept most of the water away from his land but his neighbors weren't so lucky. Many of them were killed in the floods. It was a dramatic wakeup call for the new residents who had moved there for fresh opportunities after this disaster. The Florida land. Boom essentially early halted in its tracks. Many newcomers weren't going to put up with another destructive storm. They packed up their belongings and left. Banks were bled dry. Local businesses were crippled. Entire towns were abandoned building. Projects were halted mid-construction leaving unfinished structures. Dotting the Florida Lord Landscape and yet for the people who remained nothing was done to prevent the same thing thing from happening again at the time. Most people believed that a storm that size couldn't possibly hit the same area twice. Those who stayed by lake. Okeechobee were certain that they had already endured the worst mother. Nature can throw at them and for some like Henry Martin. The worst wasn't even even that bad. His fields had been partially flooded but thanks to new pumping technology it was easy enough to restore his land. He was optimistic that if another other large storm hit the area the pumps would save them again but his wife Bessie Mae disagreed. bessie knew that the Martin clan had gotten off is lucky but this would happen again and when it did. She didn't want to be there to face it. Henry reassured his wife and children that it was all going going to be fine. A bigger stronger dike was being built to protect them. It would be unimposing five foot high fifty mile long wall of Muck DOC. This dike would not break Henry. Martin was sure of it. Henry was so confident that he doubled down on his business ventures. He bought a tractor the help so the fields he opened up two dry goods stores and he invested more time and money into the burgeoning community around him by nineteen eighteen. Twenty eight just two years. After the hurricane the area was rejuvenated. New Roads from West Palm Beach brought more people to the lake. Electricity ready and telephone lines were installed. The devastation of the storm was nothing more than an unpleasant memory with so many new residents the area around round South Lake Okeechobee grown enough to become its own town under the stewardship of everglades local Walter greer the town of Belle glade. Florida Florida was incorporated on April tenth. Nineteen twenty eight by September. Belle glade was a hub of activity. Besides Henry Martin's two stores ores. There were two bustling hotels a gas station and plenty of houses. Shacks and neatly ploughed fields. Soon all of it would would be underwater. After the Nineteen Twenty six hurricane. People like Henry Martin were certain. Such such a powerful storm wouldn't hit the region again and many of the newest residents hadn't experienced a hurricane at all but had they known more about Florida's geography geography. They might have been more apprehensive jutting out from the mainland the Florida peninsula is uniquely situated between the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico because of that it's extra susceptible to dangerous weather hot winds swift ocean currents and warm warm jet-streams all contribute to putting the area in the direct path of powerful storms. Having lived in the area for hundreds of years Lake Okeechobee Showbiz seminole people. Were all too familiar with the dangers. Hurricanes posed when the warning signals went up in nineteen twenty eight. They were the only ones to evacuate accu eight. The area the people who elected to stay had too much faith in the power of their own community for many of them Lake Okeechobee had provided so so much it was something to be loved not feared but on September Eighth Nineteen Twenty eight the source of Belle glades prosperity would become the agent of its downfall that day an arid wind from the Sahara desert blue over the Atlantic Ocean. The heat caused the air pressure to drop drawing moisture from the Roiling Seas. The rapidly forming clouds rose high into the atmosphere twisting in a vicious circle from the howling wind pushed westward by the unceasing jetstream. This was more than a mere tropical storm. It was is our hurricane still feeding off an ocean of warm water and it was very hungry. The first report of the storm came on on September tenth from sailors on the S S. commack still nine hundred miles from the Caribbean storm was still a ways off. But that just gave a bit more time to grow enforce as dawn approached on September twelfth the islands of Dominika and Guadeloupe became the first victims of the hurricanes wrath the storm showed no mercy seawalls were smashed buildings and crops were destroyed. The islanders did everything they could to survive. But at this point the hurricane was category three meaning its winds were between one hundred eleven and one hundred twenty nine miles else per hour and for the sailors out at sea. There was nowhere to take shelter in the waters near the Virgin Islands. The S S mature was struggling. Going to stay afloat captain Richard Horrid fought through the high cresting waves and heavy rainfall hodge had never experienced such high waves. These water crashed over the bow until the ship broke through the clouds into the bright sunlight. The C. still swelled swelled but the air was calm the s s mature had entered the eye of the storm. This was only a temporary reprieve. I believe the barometric pressure was twenty. Seven point five zero normally. It should have been somewhere around thirty. It may seem like a small difference friends but it was the lowest air pressure reading Captain Horace had ever seen. This was one of the most powerful hurricanes in recorded history and there was nothing the SS mature could do but write it out. The ship crashed through the wall of the storm rolling. Hard through each wave. You've somehow it didn't sink. But just because the hurricane had spared the matura that didn't mean it was done claiming victims after passing the Virgin Islands. The storm turned west-northwestward. It was headed for Puerto Rico inching ever closer to the. US less border. After this. The hurricane makes landfall in Puerto Rico and then turns its fury on Florida now. Back to the story September Thirteenth Nineteen Twenty eight was supposed to be a special day in Puerto Rico. It was the Feast Day of Saint Philippi but for eighteen long hours. The Island was caught in the throes of a hurricane during that time the storm caused unthinkable damage. Hurricane Historian J Barnes gives an anecdote about the terror faced in Puerto Rico quote. Many deaths deaths were caused by zinc roofs. Flying through the air like sites sand was hurled from the beaches and blinded people's eyes. Lightning crashed ashed constantly and there was a continual roar of thunder in the crash of falling debris in the initial storm. Three hundred twelve twelve lives were reported lost but many more possibly thousands died in the ensuing weeks due to disease and starvation. Half a million Leeann people were left homeless. The San Felipe Besa window hurricane wiped out. Puerto Rico's renowned coffee crop destroying fifteen million billion dollars in estimated revenue over two hundred million dollars. Today because of this single storm. Puerto Rico would never be a major exporter of coffee again until Hurricane Maria in two thousand seventeen the San Felipe Base Agudo hurricane was officially the most damaging managing hurricane to ever hit Puerto Rico and once the storm left Puerto Rico. It turned its fury toward the Bahamas and then the coast was to Florida. As the hurricane neared the American mainland. The people of Miami feared the worst. They were still recovering from the hurricane. Two years earlier here. If the city was hit again it would be game over however hurricanes are highly unpredictable. And in this case Miami got lucky. The storm swung east toward the Bahamas. Leaving Miami out of the worst of its path. It seemed like the danger was disappearing into the the Gulf of Mexico a small bulletin in the September Thirteenth Nineteen Twenty eight edition of the Palm Beach. Post says much when Henry Martin of Belle glade read the bulletin the danger seems so far off it was going in the opposite direction of Lake Okeechobee but in reality death was right on their doorsteps on September. Fourteenth Miami Forecaster Richard Gray stated the recording of the storm will take east of the Bahamas unless it changes its course and change course. It did the next day whether observers finally realized the storm might make landfall the headline of the September Fifteenth Edition of the Palm Beach. Post read. Florida Florida may feel the storm's path. President cores will bring hurricane to lower coast Sunday but even after that headline the post was still reporting that there was a chance the hurricane wouldn't hit this confusion led many people in Florida to assume. The storm wouldn't be a problem but by the next afternoon. A chilling and ominous sign was raised across southern Florida. The hurricane flag the hurricane flag was a black square inside of a larger Red Square. When two of these flags were raised it meant a hurricane was coming back in nineteen twenty eight before storm sirens or TV news? It was one of the only ways to inform people of an impending storm. ORM In real time but this last minute warning barely gave the people living along Lake Okeechobee. Time to prepare. The storm was on top of them before they we knew it all they could do was take shelter hunker down and pray. In Belle glade Henry Martin and his family tried to prepare for the worst but hope for the best Henry Remembered the hurricane in nineteen twenty six dangerous but not catastrophic. Maybe this one one would be the same his wife. Bessie may wasn't taking any chances. Once the hurricane flag was raised she started boarding up the lakefront windows but the fields were already starting to flood with rainwater. They couldn't risk staying in the farmhouse for long.
