How Covid Will Affect Sports This Fall

"One of the things that's on everybody's mind is the travel outlook for this fall. And really what we're talking about. We could be facing as soon as the olympics but all the way in to the fall football season so we're going to get a little expertise on that in the in the form of matt trout. Who joins us from. Sports travel magazine. You could check out a great article. He's got out there on sports magazine dot com talking about the latest sports at cove. Nineteen and really what everybody's trying to do. When it comes to opening stadiums to full capacity and matt. This is an interesting conversation and appreciate your joining the show. Sarah and i on. Spain and fitz have talked a lot about the olympics and some of the challenges. They're facing now is even japan. They're they're not sure that the olympics are safe so as you look at what every single league is trying to do to put forth the effort to put fans in stands. How confident are you at this. Point that we're gonna face what feels like a normal fall. I'm fairly confident. I think An thanks jason. Of course obviously for beyond. But i am fairly confident that we're going to be seen full stadiums In college football pro football all the pro spa sports by the fall. Especially you know you look at major league baseball. And and opening day Obviously the attention on texas rangers having a capacity crowd but everybody did have some restricted level of capacity. And you look at it now. And there's gonna be i think it's close to twenty teams by the fourth of july. That will be having their standing there. Stadium open at one hundred percent capacity. And i think when you go into the fall of the olympics obviously is a totally different animal because of the situation in japan. But i really believe that in this in college football season whether you're watching an sec. Game or pat close game or a group of five game that you're going to be seeing Stands that there might be one or two sections that are socially distanced but for the most part. I think you're gonna see everybody back to what it was. Almost in in in many ways a pre pandemic. Oh set up

Why Would Jaguars Sign Tim Tebow?

"We are back final hour. It's been a fun show. We appreciate you being here. A lot of conversation with my Mike smith earlier. We also talked to dennis dodd. Another conversation predictably has been tim. Tebow we've given you a lot of reaction on that in the mike cannon bom from espn former gm jets dolphins. He's been here a couple of times. He had this to say earlier today. On keyshawn jay will and zubin about understanding the signing. I don't like it. I just don't see the upside in this move. He's thirty four years old. He would be a backup. I just don't know of thirty four year old players that can come in and be back place special teams and you're taking away a roster spot from hopefully a young developmental player that could grow with a young nucleus obviously led by trevor lawrence. And to me this is probably through the lens of urban. Meyer saying a decade. And a half ago tim tiba was the most competitive guy i've ever been around and he can help set the culture. If i was in that building what i would be pushing back saying coach. That may be true but in the nfl as you well know. Players needs to be led by players. They believed can take them to where they wanna go and as a backup tight end. I just don't think tim tebow would have that same credibility as he wants dave when he was the starting quarterback in florida. He also questioned whether tibo could even makes a team. I just don't see how he makes the team or urban and he's a really good coach he he's been historically great college but i just don't know he has to earn a spot and he's given a spot. That's gonna cause a big problem because players weren't have a chance to win and again to me just putting on my lens of a general manager and roster construction if you're not a starter in the nfl with only forty six players dressing you have to play special teams so my question. is tim. tibor thirty four years old going to cover cover kicks that remains to be seen. Now if he doesn't earn it does a totally different discussion. But i don't think you could sign him and say hey. He definitely has a spot on this team.

"This is austin lane. He's a former. Nfl tight end the host of action. Sports jacks on. Espn radio he was joining. He was joining freddie and fitzsimmons about whether tibo is going to be jacksonville simply for his leadership. The whole narrative that tim tibo coming to jacksonville. Be an urban meyer guy and helping that locker room presence. i think it's baloney. I'm not buying into that narrative because what what guys look for in terms of leadership and guys buy into his guys that have had except you know leaders guys that you can say this guy the baller. I gotta follow him and watch. How does now. I've talked to many times. Tim is a fantastic guy. But i think the whole narrative of you're going to bring him in because he's a great locker room guys all right. Great there's there's tons of great locker got. There's tons of great teammates just like any locker. Rooms made up of all types of people. So i'm not buying that austin lane also talked about. What exactly will tibo be doing assuming. He makes the team the whole narrative. That tim tebow coming to jackson i understand that he knows urban meyer. They have a great relationship. I guess you know. Urban meyer bought a house. experts week. Sent tibo so even if he makes the team. That's going to be great e hollywood. Tv show Urban meyer tim hero next door. It's gonna be fantastic. It's gonna do all the rating. But i do think this. This is urban meyer first year and then i saw and you know he's bringing his guys in. I understand all that. But what earn myers gotta realize. Real quick is that. You can't take anything if tim people is going to make. This team is because tim tebow has earned a spot. There are no you know there is no. I like this guy lot. Let's give him a spot. That doesn't work like that players not locking them. We'll see through that day one so two hundred two things are going to happen either. Tim tebow is not the tight end which we don't think he is and i'll be honest. I'm kind of in that boat or tim. Tebow is a tight end. And he earns his spot and he gets that roster spot and that's it was not good enough during the roster spot. He's not gonna get it. Because of urban meyer gives him that spot. He's gonna lose that locker room in a heartbeat.

"Seems like mark. Emery is always in the news. We talked to pete thamel about him. A couple of days ago and since then pitas written Even more talking about whether the winds of change are not already in the thanks for the time. Let's let's talk about your latest on. When i was i was dumbfounded when i read your column because i swear. I rent a comment the other day. Some poo bear in the ncwa hierarchy. That said he was doing a good job and they were happy with him. Well hey it was interesting. Paul like he. There's a little bit like i know. I caught in the stock market. When when when the stocks keep going up they call it the goldilocks effect in in college. Athletics when someone who is perhaps not performing their job at a high level but still gets to keep their job is a similar thing. We're just all the all the factors surrounding them are in place so they can keep on going even if the results aren't there and we we saw you know most recently with larry scott out in the pac twelve where it was fairly unanimous Feeling amongst athletic director certainly in a lot of people out there that maybe it was time for larry to move on and he had a couple of key presidents especially the gentleman at arizona state and they make a crow who were were on his. We're on his side and he kept the job probably three or four years longer than maybe even more than that than than most people in that area would Would have thought he was going to in so the Mark emirate is that he is pretty much lost his constituency on the ground meaning he has lost the commissioners for shore at multiple commissioners going to estimate that least eighty five percent of them would like to see a change in the president's spot athletic directors. A little harder to judge. 'cause you're you're going from university of maine to miami and alabama you know eastern washington. There's three hundred and something in division one and there's d tuned. three as well But it's probably a fair estimate to say eighty five percent there want change as well. I mean let's put it this way for all the stuff that's come out about mark emmer. His anybody stepped up to defend him. I don. I don't think there's i have not heard or seen a you know a single person other than his bosses.

"paul finebaum" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show

"Dot com. We'll talk about the big news of yesterday in a few minutes. John has written quite skillfully about but john. I want to start with a couple of items that you mentioned in your column from earlier in the week and i'm going to get to auburn in a minute where things are always cooking. But you talked about lsu another tumultuous week for the tigers and you know they go to gainesville and then the university Announces the try to get through this with a straight face helped me please That is self imposing a bowl ban on school on a team. That very likely will. We'll do no better than five hundred and could do worse. You almost have to respect. How brazen is paul. I mean it's such a laughable move to enforce the ban win a. I mean as you pointed out record isn't very good and given all the challenges have had between opt-outs claire issues. It's hard for me. Imagine that what you wanna play a full anyway. So you had an opportunity earlier in the year to enforce a bowl ban on. They're kind back and forth. But the ncaa didn't wanna do it. Dan so we do it now. Everybody can just see now. They're trying to do so. Maybe it works but not believe the. Ncaa is incapable of critical thinking. I will seek out of see through that move there but certainly there their challenges employees in lsu right now on the other day a great story looking at that situation. The challenge is already really one of the teams that you look back on. It's harder. Mac tarts really remember a team struggling as much as lsu has with all the issues that come with that coming off a national championship the year. Before i was reading your column the other day. John and you talk about people within the industry insiders people that you talk to every day and you know talking about the future of that. Does ron and i did a double take. And i'm not naive. I feel like you know me and you pretty well but it's still struck me that a year ago. This man was the toast of the college football industry. The national coach of the year the national champion. And how could he be in trouble. And i asked that tongue in cheek because i did read your column. It just shows how quickly things can change. I think you know as well as anybody. I mean jean auburn situation. I think is probably the perfect example Esther how fastens can change. And you know if you're a certainly don't want to be compared to jean who is a very nice man but things didn't work out the end for auburn there and i think the challenge that faces that was similar to chisholm. Is that when things started going. Bad with And again it started going after. Gus malzahn left. What happened as you remember is that people basically gave malzahn credit for the national team. Of course if cam newton as well you started seeing just not really getting the credit for winning. That i'm already seeing some of that. Lsu in which people were pointing to joe burrow. Joe brady dave aranda as roy. The reasons for that national championship game and stuff starts to happen. I flicked the cases. Almost starring to be made as to. Why is ron doesn't deserve all the credit for the national championship. And why maybe he isn't the guy for the long-term future air. So i can just tell you. Within the industry there was a lot of interest around that job. No one expects it to come open this year but there are certainly some high level coaches would love a shot at it if it were to ever come open and they're not picking a decade down the line and they're thinking that the next year or two that job to come open especially next year continued to really struggle you see more opt-outs more transfers all of a sudden you start to cultural problems with some of the other issues that are going on there and it starts getting a little easier easier to imagine a move john not with us. You know you talk about the future in terms of ed- on what about the president for gus malzahn familiar late season conversation but this year the seems to be loud. Yeah i mean. I think back to one of my favorite bands talking heads. You know once in a lifetime and the situation is same as it ever was. You know it feels like every year we get to the end and you know it looks like is on the hot seat. You've got you know some powerful boosters trying to work behind the scenes to to see if they're move can be made and gushes kind of battle to hang on. We've seen it in the past when just kind of was on the ropes and then he beats georgia alabama and gets a massive extension so everything is kind of feels like on the table for auburn and like we said in the past ball. You should never make a decision purely just off of one game. But i do think this is important weekend for because a lost mississippi state given all the challenge. They've had this year Certainly would not pretend to a lot of positive momentum going into next year and no matter how much he says he thinks it's going to be a special year and i think you can never discount the emotion that comes with high level irs so a bad loss to mississippi state and you might see some people can to really make run at pushing gus out so i think this is certainly of a movie night. The most exciting slate of games this weekend. The game on paying close attention to is mississippi state. Let me close with another line. You had from this article a year ago. You talked about how as this deal was closing. This was in december of twenty nine thousand nine. This was really the first big moment for greg. Sankey since taking over i thought about that john and then think about where greg sankey is today with literally the weight of college football on his shoulders. He's gone from the commissioner of the sec. I don't mean to put words in your mouth. But i know how you feel to literally the most powerful and successful person in this in this place and in this platform. What does this deal on. Top of what he has done since covid. Where does this put him. Yeah i mean he's had a tremendous year. And i always think you know me. Well enough paul that. You don't wanna be the sec guy who just only beaten up You know how great the sec is but he deserves a lot of credit for everything eat did over. The last year avocado football season. This year i mean you know how tenuous it was embarrassed. Points this year in the sec. Staying resolved in working behind the scenes to try to keep the acc big twelve yawn or his well..

Of next week was SMU and Tcu they are. Going to postpone it because they discovered Kovin. Some stat personnel had it. So I mean we've seen that in baseball, but remember three or four weeks ago it looks like baseball was going to get shut down and. Now it's running along fairly well. I don't know but nobody expects it to be perfect but I will say Pat Forty, made this point about. Three hours ago The difference between today and four weeks ago is is stark. I mean we went into the weekend four weeks from a go. Tomorrow and it looked bleak everyone was saying football is done and you know It was done for for two conferences but everyone else has has has marched on. Thank you for the call. Appreciate it very much Brian. Up Next. Hey Brian good afternoon. High Oboe. Hey, there. Hello Yeah go ahead Ryan. I know I. Know Koreatown Town November? Oh well. We'll tell him to call us. If Alabama thirty four. And while you're, you're already making predictions. Matches up next Hey Mitch. Go right ahead. How Are you today Mitch? We were doing great. And I hope you and your watch how wonderful over the weekend. I I'LL DO I. Know who his backup quarterback is. I mean pace supposed to be almost as good favor. So if Trevor Get's we're okay. But. I wanted to do you agree with that both statements at the playoffs should not committee should not wait until the spring. To let the playoff happened. One hundred percent agree with him it would be. An injustice to those who are. Sacrificing and risking whatever they are risking right now to play football. And I'm. Not. Trying. To sound. Petty about this. But if you wanted to play football and compete for the National Championship, you'd better be out there right now not show up whenever you're presidents decide the coast is clear. You. Know I agree with what he says so Yeah and by the way I don't think anyone. I don't I'm glad he said it. The big ten in the pack twelve. Stole can't quite figure out what they wanted to do. They will have a rose bowl and good for them. The rosebowl, maybe at April or maybe may may never happen and they can hold the trophy up and I'm sure. depending on whether you're depending on the temperature that day I'll probably watch it but The regular season as far as I'm concerned ends on January eleventh, and that's when the College Football Playoff Championship will be. Thanks for the call. Really do appreciate it. We're heading to a breaks the to athletic directors at Ole Miss and Mississippi State will join us in the final hour together. Yes. They will be together to talk about specific causes air supporting. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast..

Finebaum show with me drew Franklin drew how are you. I'm wonderful. I'm like you. I love doing this love the callers I do not now let me I want to give you all a little behind the scenes because a lot of people probably think drew the Paul Finebaum Finebaum show is glamour like its Glamour because they see it on television and Paul sitting there and there's nothing better than when you turn on the S._E._C. Network you see Paul's beautiful face right in front of you because that's what you want you just want him. You want to look at him so they probably think hey when you also finebaum show that's gotta be amazing. Are you on television. We'll know when Drouin Eireann on the Finebaum show it's not on T._v.. It's radio only and we're not wearing suits. We are not as handsome as Paul Finebaum we both are we're not able to be on television but when I get dropped into this show there's a part of me that says okay. I'm going to a different world because Drouin are used to doing Kentucky Bay shows and then I host the E._S._p._N.. A national N._F._l.. pregame show and I'm used to those and then you get dropped into finebaum world and this usually happens to us about three or four times a year and I it takes me a minute to get up to find bomb speed because I don't know what you all have been talking talking about like on my show. Today we talked extensively about the fact that they found a hamburger on the street in Queens. I have a feeling that was not a big topic on Finebaum yesterday. Don't expect to come up probably not we can't talk about if you want but I suspect you don't so one of the things I like to do is I like to sort of ask. What have they been talking about so yesterday? Brad Edwards was was the host I try. I got my car and I tried to turn it on to hear what everyone was talking talking about and I turned it on twice and both times they were talking about the L._S._U.. Locker Room and believe me. What a locker room? I mean of all the locker rooms I've ever seen it is locker room tastic. They've got air pods and beds and like air people. You can charge your phone. Oh my goodness people are acting as if if you walk into the L._S._U.. Locker Room you immediately get into the year twenty three forty five and I love it but I can only talk so much about locker rooms. There's only so so much locker room talk. I can talk and at five fifteen. I have someone coming on the show to talk about the locker room. I'm going to save it for them. So what I did. Is You get assigned. A producer and these producers are wonderful young man we have Spencer Spencer and Alan and you hope drew when you get producers. They will welcome you to the show. Yeah that's their job. That's their job so the first thing that happens is Allen who seems like a nice young man. Allen says is what's the name of the host are no the call or one of the callers. I think this was Lynn is on hold or not laying. Excuse me Matt is on hold and Matt said WHO's hosting the show and would you like to know what Allen said yes. Mike Jones who Mike Jones now. The last name right got so immediately. I feel welcome. It's good to have Mike Jones Alan glad to be here with you my Jones so then I asked Spencer Spencer. Let me ask you a question..

"This is the Paul finebaum show. Best of podcast. And we say Hello to you on a Tuesday lot going on today. Some really good gas a lot of interesting phone calls. Maybe even more than we had yesterday. But one thing that's caught my eye is coaching. Oh, talking about layers sitting out bowl games. Once again, this has become somewhat of an epidemic. Well, maybe not an epidemic, but it certainly widespread. Ed ores Ron does not like it. He's old fashioned. He says the team should come first. Fashioned thinking to team comes first. But you know, I definitely understand that you guys a possible top ten pick. Everybody situation's different. You know, gritties follow ready that those a family decision that he made. So not to go against a decision. Here's here's what I think has got to be in your heart. You gotta wanna be practicing for fifteen practice. You won't be detained. If you don't want to be here. Don't won't you around about bad at it. They'll do a do agree with it, not necessarily, but everybody's different understood a situation. So this has become a big topic of conversation in in college football. When you think about it? Do you think it's a good idea or do you think like coach, Ron, you know, it'd be a team, I sport. I don't know how very many of us can relate to the opportunity to make a lot of money and perhaps. Get ready for that versus hanging out with your team won last time. Or does it say something about some of these bowl games? Anyway, one of the topics that will discuss the show begins now..

"If when Alabama was bad before Sabin got there, did they feel worse about themselves than they do today? Actually not. Here's Alabama football. I mean, there's Bryant and then they're saving in the interim was terrible. I mean, Alabama. How to coach, Alabama, a coach, Mike, do bows wanna championship, but got fired because he was having a relationship. Dennis Francioni came next and he was replaced by a Mike price who never got to his first game because he got into a scandal and then they had more more failure. But at every juncture, Alabama fans either would live off the past or look to the future. They are not. They're not a group that ever doubts who they are and what they are going to be. But but I think your overall point is a good one, but I will tell you one story, Harvey Updike back to him. I got to know him. Not that I really wanted to, but I did. He came to visit me once or twice. I actually visited him in jail and he, I asked him one time. It may have been in jail. I mean, he's in an orange jumpsuit and I said, Harvey, why didn't you do this? Why did you go to a store by pesticide and poison tree? He said, because I had to, I said, you had to. He said, yeah, he said Auburn, cheated to get Cam Newton. We were head of them twenty four to nothing, and and he called him scam. Newton scam Newton brought them back. And then they had the nerve to desecrate the bear Bryant statute at Bryant. Any stadium he said, and I had to do it. I said, you had to do it for whom I did it for Nick Saban. He said, because he couldn't do it himself. And I mean my, he was dead serious. He felt like he had done this. I mean, I'm sure a great defense lawyer could have gotten them off. I think in the end it was some type of insanity plea. I don't know what it was because the guy the guy was off his rockers to a certain degree, but a lot of Alabama fans liked him. They felt like he was standing up for them. Now the elites. The the, the elite alums who sit in the boxers, they wanted nothing to do with this guy. Remember rand, Joe Scarborough's become friends with this guy. This guy should be banned. So of course, he's banned. I mean, this guy back on campus, Joe, but that. That's the economy of a fan base. You always have the the upper crust. Then you got, and I relate. I mean, don't ask me why. I mean, I, we were not wealthy. We were middle class people, and I'm not running for public office on on some socialist campaign, but but I relate to the the average fan who who, who is scorned by by those wealthy people. And they say that this is a part of another part of what we do is they say the those who didn't go to the school have no right to cheer. That's ridiculous. I mean, this is pro football where everybody's a family if you want to cheer for Alabama because you live in Alabama, you you live in Kansas City. That's great. You're still the same fan as the guy who pays fifty thousand one hundred thousand for the box. We will continue in a moment with more of my conversation with Paul finebaum. But I, I want to tell you about linked in, you know, the right hire can make a huge impact on your business, and that's why it is so important to find the right person, but where do you find that into. Visual. You could try posting on the job boards, but can you.

"And so I regret, I wrote a column that gained some notoriety I, my first column was in the aftermath of bear Bryant's death and new era, and eventually I moved into radio, and that took a very long time as well. So. So I most people had not heard of me until I got to, yes, Pnn right before that. But so the career I'm loving every minute of this people say it must be arduous. I know. I mean, I'm in, I'm sitting in New York City. This is where I always wanted to be my family's from here. So I don't care what anyone else says. I mean, I I am at at turns sixty a couple years. I'm having the time my life at a time when most of my friends are long gone from the industry. So how how what were you doing before I knew of you? What were you doing on that? Tuesday before I woke up on Wednesday and said, Paul finebaum is someone I need to know and need to get involved. We were doing a radio show in Alabama greeny and it had expanded to a regional basis. And probably the most significant thing that had happened was Nick Sabin came to Alabama, two thousand and seven. I changed. Radio stations are ratings quadrupled. It was the saving affect that still going on in two thousand and ten Sirius XM picked up our show and it. It gave me an audience and voice to two people that had never heard it before they liked it. They thought it was crazy. It was a caller driven show. We, I say this with all the respect toward you, we were not Mike and Mike where we could grab the A-List guests. I mean, we were in Birmingham, Alabama. So we turned the show into a caller driven show and became an insane asylum. And all of a sudden he's normal people that had never had a voice or celebrities, and I am brace that, and I think that's really what happened. So the show goes national and things that you're on national series. XM is a great medium, but there's a lot of stations. Something happened in two thousand eleven that that probably was the biggest change. We had a guy call our show. He talked. He didn't really believe what he was saying he was. He was rambling on. And then finally, he admitted on the air that he had poisoned the iconic tumors oak trees at Auburn university here our that the iron bowl. Okay. And I thought where they put a scam, New Jersey owned, bear Bryant's statue. Well, let me tell you what I did. I went to Auburn, Alabama, Khalil, thirty miles away. You're not poisoned the to tumors traits that they, they're not dead yet, but they, they definitely will roll damn tied. Nothing happened for couple about two weeks later, the story blew up. The guy's name was Harvey Updike. It became one of the biggest stories in college football, and if you're not an Auburn fan and he'll follow the south, these trees are the are their religious experience for Auburn fans after every win. They roll them with toilet paper. There were tears and that that became part of a thirty for thirty by ESPN. Roll tide war eagle, which gain me some more notoriety. But the biggest moment of my career interestingly was because of a print article went right back to the beginning in two thousand and at the end of two thousand twelve, the New Yorker magazine had not done a piece on a college football person in about ten years.

"Welcome back to I'm interested. I'm Mike Greenberg and my guest this week absolutely fascinates me by the way I have had people tell me that I use the word interested too much podcast. I'm going to do my best not to people telling me to drinking game. Now, people are listening to the podcast and they're taking drink every single time I used the word interested and just as quick side, I have a terrible personal association with that because when I was in college, I remember going to the Wrigley field bleachers to watch a cubs game and we were, we used to do a beer and inning. And then we decided one game we were going to do a beer run, and the cubs gave up eight runs in the first inning, and I don't remember much of the rest of that day, so I must be careful with those things anyway. I digress the the idea here for those of you who are new to our podcast is that I just find interesting people and talk to them about the things that make them interesting to me. And my guest this week is someone who is a phenomenon that I don't know that I fully understand. But over the course of the next forty, five minutes or so, hopefully we will figure it out. He is the mouth of the south. He had hosts and incredibly not just successful, but I think important from a sports perspective, radio program, hosted TV show on the SEC network is part of college game day, which I think at this point is ESPN's most successful show most significant show and has become an incredibly important part of it. He's Paul finebaum and here's the way Paul I will start. Why are you looking at me like then I just can't believe I'm here, but anyway, keep going where where were you otherwise expecting to be? No, I'm just I'm loving this introduction. Okay. Well, that's good. Thank you. I pride myself on those. Here's how I would describe you. My knowledge of you. I've been SPN a longtime. I've worked in the media, a longtime, and I feel like on a Tuesday, I had never heard your name in my life. And on Wednesday, you are one of the three or four most important voices in the sports conversation. Paul finebaum. How did that happen? I, I would love to give you a dissertation that that sounded intelligent and well-thought out in even maybe a Ted intellectual, but but I don't think there's an easy answer. What I did greenie is I was a newspaper guy. I loved it. I never thought anything would be better than that. I felt like if I hadn't gotten to the New York Times by age thirty, my life was going to be over and it didn't work out. I got involved in some things, especially lawsuit that circumvented my career from progressing and I was devastated. So then I became a columnist knocked around Alabama, and it just kept moving down the road a little bit. And a couple years ago, it finally happened where people outside of a very small region began to to hear my name. So I don't. I know you talked a lot of people that that sometimes. Pinch themselves and they're not really sure where they are. I'm one of those because I've seen it from all sides in. I don't. I still don't believe that even though I love hearing what you said. I'm not sure I quite buy in to that description. Is the the loss that you refer to? Is that public knowledge about? I don't know at what happened. In another lifetime I was newspaper reporter. I was an investigative sports reporter. And we broke a story. I won all these awards that usually get you the next level. And I had a job at the Philadelphia Inquirer that I was about to go except the job on Monday, and they called me Sunday afternoon and said, we don't need you. We've just found out you were in a lawsuit, and it was one of the most devastating moments of my life that this whole career that I'd built from college came to an end and in some ways, I'm not sure I still have recovered from that because that's what I wanted to do. I'm glad now and see the state of the newspaper business. What year was this is in the early eighties also interviewed and Chicago. I thought that was going to get a job there..
