Today's Trivia question came to me I gotTa admit rather by surprise and I'm. I'm not sure if I'm framing the best way for you, but let's have added. What do Michael Jackson and Billy Crystal have in common they have an interesting musical connection and I invite you to figure it out I will have the answer to that at the end of the show. And just like last week this week show was the result of request by a friend of the show and patron Jeremiah Coughlan, who has been bugging me for a while to cover a meatloaf song and it was is the has aniversary this past week as recording this so I can't let the guy down or can I? Let's find out. Let me tell you. Let me tell you something about the Bat Outta Hell I was in high school year it released a while it is sold about forty one million copies worldwide. I'm pretty sure that about twenty million of them were purchased by the King's Park High School class of nineteen. eighty-one 'cause that thing was absolutely everywhere for a while our school held a lot of dance nights as Class Fund Raises One of the highlights of those events was the DJ firing up paradise by the Dashboard Light. While a couple of students with lip sync the song in the middle of a big circled, I would not be surprised if school administrators just kind of gave up and started handing out copies of the record two new enroll lease. the memories. Bat Outta Hell was born from the ashes of a musical called Neverland which was a futuristic rock opera based on Peter Pan Neverland was a workshop that Jim Steinman had created in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy four, which had been performed at the Kennedy Center. Music. Theater lab just a couple of years later steinman and meat loaf were touring with the national lampoon show around that time and they pulled. Three songs from Neverland that they thought were especially good and they began to develop them as part of a longer set of songs that they hope to turn into an album though songs were bad at a hell heaven can wait and a song called the formation of the pack which eventually became all revved up and no place to go but we're not talking about those guys. So let's move on. Battle a hell by the way, the opening track that was timings attempt to write an extreme splatter platter, and if you've heard some of these shows, recent episodes, you know that a splatter platter is one of the songs like leader of the pack where some youngster dies an untimely death usually in an auto accident and Steinman has acknowledged that the next track you took the words right out of my mouth is basically the cords from the WHO's Baba o'riley with the Phil Spector Melody overlake that spoken word introduction to the song on a hot summer night bit comes from Neverland it was specifically a set of wedding vows. And in fact when Bat Outta hell became Broadway musical, it was again US exactly that same way. All right. Let's zero in on Paradise. Shall we about half the songs on the album three out of the seven are basically about a teenager's view of life and sex including unrealistic views of romance mixed with strong physical urges. And while the traffic crying out loud has a line about Levi's bursting apart. It's pretty clear that paradise by the Dashboard light is the most upfront about its team. But we only get the romantic longing in the sexual tension were also treated to the consequences of that combination. Steinman is said that he wanted to write a car sex which everything goes horribly in the end and that's pretty much exactly. What happens here One of the backup singers on the album was Ellen Foley, who had worked with Steinman and meat loaf on the national lampoon tour. But most people will remember her today as the public defender on the TV show night court during that programs second season before mark post took over the role permanently. At any rate, Foley, was tapped to take on the female portion of the song. Now, the song is broken into four sections. Although if you look at the lyric sheet on the inner sleeve, it's divided into three basically combining the first two together. But I'm to separate these two for our purposes today. The first one has the characters thinking back to their high school days and hanging out in his car by the lake and things start escalating. Until we hear the boy saying over and over we're GONNA, go all the way. Tonight we're going to go all the way. Tonight's the night the vocal cuts out suddenly Liam the music takes on a bit of a funk breakdown at which point we move into part two. We're still in the car, but there's a baseball game on the radio and Yankees Announcer Phil Rizzuto is calling the ball game, which is obviously a metaphor for the boys attempt to get into the girls pants. On Only on. A LINE GOT Really. Fine. He's rounding dirt. Not. Letting. Second. Bottled Out, center at Agra Roy and. You WanNa find. Very calm. Day Say I think this is really make things happen. Pipe here's. What? Try. And convert. How? A pretty big laid off air. Up and. down. The first. Now, Phil Rizzuto recorded his portion of the record at the hit factory in New York City with Jim Steinman Meatloaf, and the album's producer Todd Rundgren at the controls now according to Steinman it was his idea to use the baseball metaphor in that part of the record but he and Meatloaf came around to using Rizzuto pretty much the same time because they were both huge Yankees fans and like to listen to Phil Rizzuto 'cause sometimes, he would say weird things. Run on the other hand. Thought it was a pretty ridiculous idea but ultimately ran with it. Resume was paid a flat fee of one thousand dollars to record his bit and that's it. He never received royalties or anything else. And what you hear on the record is something like the ninth take because Steinman felt that he wasn't signing excited enough and he needed coaching to get into the spirit of the non existent game. Now, also according to Steinman is the fact that rundgren forgot to bring any of the existing tapes to the recording session. So they didn't have the song for resume not here or for him to record against. So they told them, they would just wild track his recording and make it fit later on Steinman. Also said that residual Aston specifically is this is somehow dirty and they told him that it. This mostly matches up with zoodles later version of the story he said in a radio interview that he had his suspicions especially because. A very close one plus some of the language didn't make sense. For instance when you have to outs, no baseball team is going to use a squeeze play in a squeeze play. There's a run on third and the battles going to bump the ball expecting to be thrown out at first. But this gives the runner an opportunity to score if there's two out while the throat of I just end the inning and it doesn't matter what the runner does. Anyway. Rizzuto recorded the piece he collected his thousand dollars and that was that except. When the record came out, someone got a hold of it and took a copy down to resume who is working with Spring training for the Yankees played it for him and asked him for reaction. Rizzuto was upset especially since he was a religious fellow and sure enough he got some flack from conservative fans of his and he was forced to distance himself from the record afterwards although. He did have a little bit of sense of humor about it sometime later. Jim Steinman and meat loaf were invited to Yankee stadium to present the team where they platinum record for the album and they were in the dugout waiting to be called up when Zuhdi spotted them from the field and here is Jim steinman account of that meeting there was it comes running into the dugout from. Yelling. Steinman. Me Love You huckleberry. Why don't you tell me was dirty the nuns are never going to forgive me I, take more all only the church about this. He's really religious and he says average is telling me did you know that it's kids are having sex in the car holy cow I'll never get over my kids love it though my kids favorite. Baseball, sportscasting and. warned me this and rented about the nuns? Good pseudo now meatloaf is said that resume knew exactly what he was recording, but I'm buying Simon's account because it matches up. So well with resume does including the references to the nuns. After the baseball call we move into the third segment of the song with boy and the girl are in a debate, and this is where Ellen Foley takes greater prominence in the song the boy wants to go further, but the girl refuses unless he promises her his forever love naturally he stalling for time. So he tries to tell him that he's going to give her an answer the next day, and she's not buying it. The discussion goes back and forth and keeps escalating until finally he cracks and offers up the promise swearing to God and on his mother's. Grave the he'll love her till the end of time, and that carries us directly into the final segment of the record called praying for the end of time. At this point, we've moved back into the present and couple basically can't stand each other, but he's an honorable man and he's not going back on his promise. So He's just GonNa wait for the sweet release of death to get him out of his vow and the song fades out again, playing with the Stereo channels a little bit by having him singing on the left side and her on the right. There are three versions of the song out there. The full album length is eight minutes and twenty eight seconds. But on the forty five, it appears almost in its entirety fating almost immediately after meatloaf sings. So I can end my time with you still at about seven fifty seven, it's one of the longest songs to appear on a single side of a forty five RPM record, and then in some countries, the song is cut down to about five and a half minutes, which would also include the entire baseball segment being cut out. Before and move on from the recording of the record, it is worth noting that there are a few prominent musicians on this song I. Not before that Todd rundgren produced the entire album. He also provided some backup singing when you can tar work on this track. That's Edgar winter playing the saxophone. He's kind of buried in the next, but he's in there are. All, the keyboard work and that's definitely worth noting because there's an organ in the mix doing a lot of heavy lifting and I recall that the stealth MVP of this record making the whole thing just a little bit more soap operatic. baton you might recall as a member of Bruce springsteen's e street Ben as is Max Weinberg who did the drumming on this record? So it's small wonder that the alms overall song was compared to that of springsteen's work and run good is admitted that the songs jungle land and thunder road might have influenced him a bit for is also suggested that at the time he the project is almost like a parody of spring states because it was just salt operatic in over the top. Now steinman and meat loaf had a tough time selling the to a label ultimately getting onto Cleveland International Records, which was a division of epic. Of the problem was at everybody epic can hated it. So it was a minor miracle that they were able to talk the label into letting them make a video of the song. It's a simple performance clip although the audience is nowhere to be seen, and then when you get to the zoo portion of the record there some clips of vintage baseball plays cut in and out. we see Karla Devito lip, synching the girls part to Ellen Foley's vocals because by that time Ellen Foley had other commitments on it moved on and would usually be the onstage performance for the song. Anyway. But. The fact is the video is very effective and for a couple of reasons I. Was An actor I on a musician second and so he had a great way of playing to the camera when he needed to the other thing that made it successful was that he managed to mark at the video in very clever way. Remember this was nineteen, seventy, seven and MTV wasn't a thing yet. MEATLOAF convinced movie theaters to run thirty five millimeter prints of the film before the Midnight Showings of the rocky horror picture show, which was starting to take on cult status and in which meatloaf had appeared as Eddie. Today. Those prints are extremely rare and only a few of them are still in playable condition at any rate. The video proved to be popular enough that it managed to get decent airplay on MTV just a couple of years after the records release. Now. Here's the part that most people forget the song peaked at number thirty, nine on the billboard hot one, hundred chart partly because it was classified as a novelty record in Belgium, the song went to number two and it stayed there for five weeks held out of the top spot. The entire time by the village people's Ymca and I'm a little bit sorry that I didn't mention that when I talk about that song back in episode eighty, but in the Netherlands. The Netherlands the song became meatloaf biggest tent making it all the way to number one by the end of nineteen, seventy eight, and then it became a hit all over again ten years later in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight. And in the UK the song though it's well known didn't chart at all at the time. But when rock stations over there do special whatever top three, thousand of all time. Paradise by the Dashboard light is consistently somewhere in the top thirty. Now, I, don't know of any serious covers of the song was used in the TV show. But it has been used a couple of times in commercials not two, thousand, three. General Motors use the song to promote a twenty four hour test drive campaign call sleep on it. But the slightly crazier one is from two thousand eight when the song was reworked to sell at and T.'s go phone, the ad involves meatloaf himself as a father. Whose Son has asked for this specific phone partway through, you're going to hear female voice and that would be tiffany Darwish usually just known as Tiffany Popstar from the late nineteen eighties. And while you have to see the video for yourself, I'm going to play part of it here. This was ninety second commercial and only playing about the first. Phone. Has a limited talking. Surprise Bill. Ever doubted. into. A day I. Love. I think. I'm GonNa, I'M GONNA have to link that commercial in the website. 'CAUSE YOU HAVE TO I. I don't understand what's going on with tiffany she appears to be when I see here. It looks like she's carrying I. Think it's an entire leg of lamb and then later on, there's a dove you have to see it. It's it's just just plain. Weird. And now it is time to answer today's Trivia question back on page two I asked you what Michael, Jackson and Billy Crystal having common musically this is I'll admit a tenuous connection, but the answer is composer Rod ten ten. If you all the way back to episode fifteen, then you remember the templeton was the composer of Jackson's biggest single thriller from Nineteen Eighty to Templeton. A lot of hit songs and a few of them wind up in movies including ATV extraterrestrial and the color purple. But Templeton also almost all the music for the film running scared starred Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines as a pair of cops who are out to make one last big bus before they retire that soundtrack resulted in multiple charting hits two of them written by Templeton. This is the first one man size love. Maks the video for this song features the Band at a drive in theater and running scared as the film. They're there to see at the end of the video it's actually edited to look as the climax is performing in the movie itself with the band performing in a corner of a bar that's designed to look like the one in the film, and then it's interspersed with shots from the film that take place in the bar. And the other song would be sweet freedom Michael McDonald. Now the video for that Song Has Michael McDonald performing the song in Tropical Bar. But while it also features clips from the movie, the way climax does it's got a lot of footage that Gregory hines and billy crystal shot specifically in character for the video. So I, it opens with the characters reading postcard from Michael McDonald, and then all the sudden they're downing he west sensing and clowning around. With the bar patrons and singing backups for McDonald. So Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines. If you want to be more specific are tied to Michael Jackson and that they appear in videos for hit songs written by Rod Temper Tooth, and all of this came about because I was watching running scared the other night for maybe the hundred time and I suddenly recognized Templeton's name with fury in those opening credits. and.

Listen and subscribe on the iheartradio App Apple podcasts or ever you listen to your favorite podcasts. You come to brainstorm a production of iheartradio brain stuff. Learn Boban here. It seems seems quaint. These days to express astonishment with a wholesome phrase like holy cow. It's so common that we've probably all said at some point. Maybe as kids. And if your sports fan of a certain age you may even associated with baseball announcer Phil Rizzuto or Harry Carey Carey delivered particularly clearly memorable holy cow in his broadcasts so much so that comedian will ferrell often period carry on Saturday night. Live some some people even thought that resute oh or carry might have originated the phrase they were both in the booth in the early days of holy cow but not quite early enough. Russillo began announcing after his playing days. Were over his first season as announcer for the New York. Yankees was in nineteen fifty seven carries announcing career began in the minor leagues in Nineteen Forty. Three and he moved up to the majors in nineteen forty five but holy cow dates from before that. It's what's known as as a minced oath which is when you substitute a kind of maybe similar ish sounding word for a taboo word. That's why we have friggin thing. It and heck in this case cow is probably a stand in for Christ so the speaker wouldn't take the Lord's name in vain minced oaths have been around in the English language for hundreds of years the variations on the holy theme have been in use since the middle of the eighteen hundreds according to the Oxford English dictionary its this definition of holy includes its use as an expletive such as holy cow or Holy Mackerel the first instance listed for this variety of minced. Oath imprint comes in eighteen fifty-five with Holy Moses but what about holy cow specifically it does indeed have ties to baseball but back before Kerry and Rosetto where even born pitcher for the Sacramento Wolves. Thirteen was known as holy cow Peter's according to a report in the Sacramento Union that year. But not even auto holy cow. Peter's could claim to have invented the phrase since that same year the Lincoln Star in Nebraska. Bresca noted that player Manager Charlie Mullen said holy cow so as early as nineteen thirteen people were saying holy cow at least in Sacramento Sacramento California and Lincoln Nebraska. The thing is cows are famously held as holy in Hinduism. They're not gods and they're not not worshiped but cows are considered sacred these gentle beasts after all if more to humans than they take in the form of milk and its products like butter and cheese and manure which we can use as fertiliser. There were a few English language books on India and Hinduism around in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries which coincides with the phrase popping up across America. It's unlikely that baseball players were directly referencing Hindu religious beliefs in creating their new minced oath. But it it is likely that holy cows were something Westerners knew about around that time. And if you're a baseball player who just struck out again and you're forbidden from swearing by elite. Holy cow might start to look like a pretty good substitute for what you'd really like to say. Today's episode was written by Kristen Hall. Geisler and produced by Tyler.

This is banking reimagined. This is the Dan Le Batard show with this. To spot. Cass gods. I just got a glimpse into the soul of producer. Mike is inability to enjoy even a moment as the content machine continues to flourish during the pandemic. I can't even have a moment to enjoy something before. There's another fire to put out and so I walk in and Mike Ryan is saying to his computer. Thank you that was awesome. Thank you and and so I wanNA know. I'm walking in. I WanNa know what Mike. What was that what happened and immediately. Mike is dragged into some executive conversation about something with the New York Post. That and I'm like what is happening. Here why did you just go from so happy? Too stressed out. What was what were you so happy about. I was so happy about the local hour over. The last few weeks is pandemic has sort of forced us on the local hour to to rework how we do it and one of the really cool things that's come out of. It is me doing like a straight local hour with David. Samson and I love Nineties Baseball and early two thousands baseball and he's got amazing sword. He's the former. Marlins team president so readily available to tell these stories and great details the only executive in our stable or former executive in state in our stable. And even though totally understand anybody in Miami objecting to us doing anything with him. He's a bit of a content machine when it comes to giving us the executive perspective that you know. We've had Stan van Gundy around here. You've had all different kinds of journalists. The thing that we built around here you see that it's had a lot of different voices and perspectives. The old timing columnists and David Samson's the only executive we've actually had that can talk about real front office store. Oh Yeah I re- I remain conflicted. My only justification for it is I feel like I'm pretty good at calling him out on what I think is bs or what was bs at the time. And I don't let him get ahead of me on the spin machine but either way like we've been telling great inside stories about those world at that world champion. Marlins team and his time in baseball and it was leading up to this episode that We just recorded in great detail. He journaled the entire. Miguel Cabrera trade experience. So we'RE STRAIGHT SINCE BABE RUTH. Worse baseball trade since Babe Ruth he he journaled it. He was like keeping notes on how that trade came to be the worst trade in baseball his all the teams involved all the names involved the process of which he went to each team trying to leverage other teams against him calling an owner. That was really old. That desperately wanted to win a title. That never spoke to other teams names like Kershaw and camp and Billingsley and Loni and just it makes. If you're marlins fan you want to pull your hair out because of the names that they actually settled on which were ended up being camera. Maybe Angel Miller huge flop. But I'm really enjoying this marlins fan and is just someone that's just creating wasn't Bayden hop in that trade to hopper you find out you find out how bad and how it came about. How could that be your first contribution to the show today the hopper? I was I was enjoying the conversation between you and Mike and he said Burke Bayden up I happen to like the names that came back in the Cabrera trade and that was the first time a window is slightly open for me. I got right through it. I WanNa know more here because I don't understand what I walked into because I wanted to enjoy that with Mike. If he's just got like what what do you want to tell your sports friend more stugatz than hey I just heard they could have had kershaw an x four Cabrera and you're the only one who knows it like. I was denied that moment because I come in here. Mike was immediate stress face dealing with something. I don't even know what he's dealing with but he said New York Post and it made me laugh. So here's what I was dealing with. I was told. Hey no New York Post conversation. Which in all honesty. Why didn't I get that text yesterday? We did an entire show where we'd let with a New York Post story yesterday. That's right it was different. New York Post story was guy dressed as a gorilla that they didn't get into detail guy dresses and a grill costume ended up getting arrested walking wrong house. Let me check my notes. Like David Samson did because this could be about the the gorilla costume thing. But I digress. So I- relay that message to you. You tell me the exact opposite is going to happen. And I'm like how because like I have bosses but you also have bosses and I've run open. I'll tell you no no. I'll tell you how this is going to happen the ESPN's not telling us what to talk about that. That's never been case around here. Might I suggest you talk shirt. You you are the rebel with a cause. I appreciate that. Can you not talk about all of it or okay? Well I think a lot of the audience wouldn't even know what I'm talking about here right because it was a weird story in the middle of a pandemic audience knows to get an that. Tell you what to talk about. I'm perfectly fine with them. Telling me wants to talk about. I mean I guess that's fine but I just don't understand like that's never been the thing around here anybody who's followed us at. Espn knows that. I negotiate freedom not money that I negotiate the ability as a child of exiles to talk about the things that I want to talk about and so the idea that there would be a newspaper story and any executive. What have any issue with me commenting on a newspaper story about us when I'm in the radio content business like I'm not really going to ignore that one when the story is not flattering does when ESPN has fired. An employee for talking to the media about stuff. And then you get this weird story in the New York Post during a pandemic talking about whether we're going to be here anymore when we've got two and a half years of an expensive contract that we're tied into that makes it kind of ridiculous the whole the whole story and so to not talk about it. It's one of the objections I've always had. Espn doesn't like to cover itself the way that covers others. But Hell if you're going to do that to me like I'm a I'm a journalist. They wrote a story about us. I I called some people. They said it's not true. They said it's false. It's a false story and so like since when you think there's a pandemic that this culture around us that's wait. Let me backtrack for second. So we've always fought with parts of the machine at ESPN. There's a culture like a like a subculture of people who have argued against us having an animal guy. Let's just call. Let's make an executive one exactly where I would just can we can. We named the executive sports right sports sports sports short span so every edict. What do you WanNa talk about? Sports sports shorts. That's always what we're fighting against flirts. It's it's groot. All it says is sports and more sports more sports shorts so I like to talk about journalism and race and other things. Because that's one of the things that's interesting that. I'm watching during this documentaries. Wilbon and Kornheiser can't shut up because back when they cared about sports. This is the story. We're talking about now like when they really cared about sports when they were writing about sports instead of gas bagging about it like you could sit. Kornheiser wilpon down and they will give you. Nineteen hours on Isaiah Thomas because like they are right now in their element. Much like them. I to have gotten to a different place in terms of how I care about sports. I you know I got married. My life is very different. This has to be funded. There's no real reason to do it if it's not fun but if you're going to come at me during a pandemic with more sports like get. Outta here like the real get Outta here. What are you talking about more sports when there are no sports more sports more sports? I think you're burying the lead. That New York Post story. Grady might be coming back to radio. I mean come on just talk about. Can we just do this number one? I know that's not an option. But can you just stick to your name and no one else's from artist that's true? I think God's it's totally fine. You should feel pretty encouraged. You got the dinner next sports what's ESPN radio is presented by progressive insurance. The last dance continues this Sunday at nine pm Eastern on ESPN immediately after the show airs.

I need to explain to the audience at some point. What's going on because I wish we were televised today. There's just blanket fear on the face of my staff. We'll that in a second because Mike was just explaining the show to Chris. Cody so we'll get to that in just a moment but before we do the story that you just told us what percentage of people who are doing their jobs at home right now journalism jobs reporting jobs and they're making it look a formal and professional are wearing pants like what percent. Tim Kirch and I saw the other day that he was in or looked like he was in a suit. And I'm like man that's gotta be pain to be in your house and have to go put on a suit and come back downstairs and just sit in front of the computer. I'm guessing what do you think the majority or the minority of the reporters right male reporters on television. Do they have Shorts on down under. Because I've done the majority of television I've done in. My life has been without pants right and that was without a pandemic going on from the studios. Yes so people Weirdo. Because I'm a Weirdo. That's absolutely right. I don't even want to. I don't even want to wear a suit at at a place where you should be wearing a suit. I would say I would say. Eighty percent is a pretty good number. In fact I would say north of eighty percent of television personalities. Working from home or wearing shorts They've shirt a jacket tie but they are wearing shorts and they're doing exactly what we'll reeve said he was doing it. I gotTA deliver my report. It's a five minute thing and then I'm GonNa jump on the Peleton bike or something like that. Yeah I do think a whole lot of people are learning that they're just now learning all sorts of things about how different everything is going to be shortly like in terms of how we're working at home. A whole lot of businesses are noticing that they have costs that they don't necessarily need because of what's happening here where we can sit here what you don't even need a studio to do the show now and have it on television anymore. So I've got to imagine. Put It on the pole. Guillermo at Lebatardshow Eighty percent over or under on percentage of anchors from home reporting in suits who are wearing. Were not wearing pants. Because I think I might go with STU gods over eighty percent. I would go over ninety percent to be honest with that eighty. That's why I put the number there. You just said anything else. You would go straight tonight okay. But anyway so within the context of what we're talking about because Mike was just explaining the show to Christopher you just said like I've always laughed at the culture of sports because you just went from eighty to ninety percent. I've always laughed at like going to the interruption. Skip bayless locks himself in the dressing room because he doesn't want me to hear what his arguments are going to be or see them or cheat or whatever and so then they asked us patriots. A fourteen wins over or under and his argument was way over over. And so I'm like really. This is how we're GONNA do sports television and Eric Ride home. The producer vilely question was like yeah. Dan Put on a jacket. It's weird enough that we got you next to your dad and it kitchen. Your Dad's doing the show. His second language you agree though at fourteen when the number set there and your take is way over. That is Genius Eric. Ride home is a personal friend and I have not won the battle with him in terms of sports put on a jacket. I'm like I'm telling Eric Ride home. Hey Eric I'm sitting next to my dad in a kitchen and he doesn't speak English that well Why do I need the formality of at home? In Kirk Shing where you've told that story a couple of times and lost and all of it is how right skip bayless was because the Patriots went undefeated. That is correct was indeed correct. But can you explain to the audience? What you were trying to explain to Chris during the break because our show doesn't even work unless it's bumping up against people who sometimes don't like it if everyone at like this. This would be no fun at all at Chris was I mean. God bless Chris because he's adorable and they say in wrestling the the best characters are the ones that are true to yourself but amplified Chris himself all the time. He really really is. He's the lovable OAF and I love him. He's like all right. We're talking about the segment. That just happens like it. Sounds like we're angry with someone but I don't. I don't know what we're we're railing against something. But what are we railing against exactly? I'm like that's that's sort of the point getting into to degrade detail but the show really in its history has never worked with someone with power or many people with power and influence not getting it. It's a rallying cry for the people that love the show which you don't get the show it's on right about it you're wrong. It flatly doesn't work if people don't hate it strongly Chris. Cody has a rebuttal here. Because I'm surprised he wants to speak at all. The codes have been disastrously bad the last three weeks. Just show wrecking at every turn between them. Just a family dynasty onslaught upon the show and so. I'm surprised that he actually wants the microphone this time. Because I haven't had any evidence that any of you want the microphone during this. So yes Chris. What do you have please all? It sounds like a railing against listeners. That were coming at US saying. Hey you guys. You guys should have talked about this yesterday. So now we're the ones were delayed on it and we're saying that's right. We'll talk about anything you want. Just yesterday it's fair. I mean honestly it's because I was still hammered from my wife's birthday after getting trapped outside my house with a festoon of balloons and I didn't even know what was happening with the story. I didn't even. It's such a stupid story. It really think about this. The idea of leaking anything to the New York Post and twenty twenty the idea of caring about what a media writer thinks about anything in twenty twenty when everybody in the universe has a blog boy as the only person. That's actually been in a room with Dan over the last several months now. I can attest he had the whiskey knows strong yesterday. Big Tab. I look like Bourbon yesterday. What I looked like also festoon of balloons has not stopped being fun. Balloon would have been a funnier way to say that if I knew how to do radio at all can I just say something a about our show. You look at the radio landscape and this is once again me explaining our radio show. A lot of. It's people are on our national radio now that we're television personalities. People just decide radio show why I don't know some sort of talent contract dictates. I don't know why we've gone in this direction but usually when we were coming up is a show would start locally and climb and and be really hard to climb. It'd be a radio show that formed it's chemistry for over a decade and then it would reach the highs. It's why our timing and are nonverbal communication even though the pandemic has taken a chainsaw and a chain so it's wire show sticks out people. Don't get into radio to be a part of one show for this long. It helps us. You don't get to the point that we which we are. Which is the biggest sports? Talk Radio in the history of the world. We all know this without doing things right now. The show may end one day without doing things wrong without doing without doing a whole bunch of things wrong because we're just testing the boundary but my point is throughout. Every level of this shows climb. We've always had that we've always run against it. We heard it from the other sports talk station in town in Miami that we're taking really. I mean in retrospect offensive takes two to how manly we were just because we would like Tan before that before that xenophobic takes on everything. Cuban I wrote for the Miami Herald back when radio shows just took newspaper article to make all their content. Health STU GODS. I don't know a lot of people know. This stugatz was a producer. For Hank Goldberg. Goldberg Tires Show was just ripping me. Like what percentage of the show was simply stolen from the Miami Herald? Every day I would say especially towards the end of Hank's run. I would say like a good seventy seventy five percent of his show was about article that you had written. He did not like you. And that's why I hired you and look the Gupta. That's why it's actually a radio genius. Even though and one day we're going to be undoubtedly we're going to be on the losing end of the tug of war we faced. That's for our entire time. Hopefully hopefully I can get out before before someone does it to me but less you'd think that we haven't been in these tug of wars throughout what are we third deal with. Espn radio people have had power and influence there. That haven't gotten us the entire time out there we have allies and that's that's good system that ESPN has not having everyone. Uniformly agree that something works. Our show needs that foil. Like I've said but that day hasn't come yet. It might come two and a half years but it hasn't come yet. Prideful that felt prideful from Mike Ryan yesterday. Got I plan on doing this until the day? I die I yeah. I just think you're going to be doing it with Golick sports next. Your home is important.

So Stu Gods I wanna get to billy on something here that I think is funny but Mike Ryan spent that entire read of yours barking into his microphone. A bunch of complaints about Steve. Kerr why were you like you still care about sports? That way. Where you're sitting here during a pandemic telling Steve Kerr get over yourself. Knock it off. I like Steve Kerr but once you sit this year out or operating as if the season's over I don't want to hear that news right now. I'm like suge. I want to hear some good news. And by the way haven't the warriors been operating like the season's been over since game two of the regular season. When when when you have seventy wins Steve? Kerr talk all the time. We can't get enough of it. Shut up when he got fifteen winning. Let let's have the adults have the conversation at this point winners. You don't have a seat at the table. Bill withers get an opinion of free America. I'm good with our season being over. I am so proud of Michael Right now. I wish I can give you a hug. I really stugatz in that. You should be proud because he he is looking into your eyes and you're looking into his and that was him being you. You're allowed to have an opinion when you win seventy game shut up if you've got fifteen wins and Mike. Here's how you take it next level. How about you prepare your team as if the season is still going on because we have no idea what is going to look like when the season resumed that. If you'RE GOING TO PLAY REGULAR SEASON Game Steve Kerr and how about your have your team prepare? Because all these as by very very important in terms of seating in terms of who gets in who does get it. I don't want to hear that you're season's over. I don't WanNa hear that any season's over I want to hear that. You're getting prepared for the final stretch Rod. And we'll see you. Mix The playoffs of wins. The Larry O'Brien about that. I'm so with you. It would appear so if the season were to restart seth curry and Klay Thompson could be out there for the warriors. Will they know? So you don't get to talk. He has a podcast right now. You know that girl has a podcast right now. Carol Carol because he misses giving his opinion so much and usually I'm there because I've never had a reason to deny you your voice because you earned it with success but fifteen wins. Get the hell out of here. Well he just mentioned Pete Carroll and I was looking at billy you sent me a whole new list of looks like for Kirk Chin and there are some really great ones. You're never mind our tournament which we have to update but there are a couple of Pete Carroll ones in here are all of these things that I can read today billy because I've got an awful lot of them and I can't believe how good they all are like. It's just I almost do a tournament based on what you've just sent me here are all of these for today if you want. I mean read as many as you get to okay. I mean there were so many here that made me laugh but I won't do them with With Kirk Russillo has taken this as a compliment. Ryen Russillo looks like the friend who would stop a bar fight for you and have the people who he stopped by him. A drink right yeah. He's done it does Joe. Buck look like a super villains nerdy sidekick yeah A. Does Pete Carroll looked like a sweet man who bakes coffee cakes for his wife sometimes when she sat a long day as a pediatric medical assistant. And when you ask him what his secret ingredient his first coffee cake he looks at you and wings and says love. That's great cow. Looks like a lot of things man. He's a chameleon. Well he does. He look like this. The COP who answers the phone snapping his fingers with a raised arm as if to tell the rest of the precinct to trace the call. It's the kidnapper on the line. I got a bunch of them here and I'm GonNa get to more of them but we really should get out of the way here because billy has got Manny Ramirez News. And there's very little that excites billy more honest to God. It's a weird thing. I don't even understand your infatuation with Manny Ramirez all these years later. How old is he? Now where is he trying to play? Baseball Manny Ramirez Dan laboratories forty seven years old and he is trying to make a comeback in the Chinese Professional Baseball League in Taiwan which was the first professional baseball comeback. We may get mandatory soon. And you're thinking who wants to watch. Manny Ramirez the answers America because they just keep rebroadcast. The old major. Here's needs anyways so we're going to watch old games manny. Why don't we just watch new games of Manny does does America want more Manny Stugatz? Do you feel like you miss Put It on the poll. Guillermo Lebatardshow does America want more. Manny Ramirez. America wants anything I mean. They'll take manny. They'll take a seniors major league baseball tour. We'll take anything right now so dangerous that want to have people dying. You can't have a seniors baseball. No no crowd. Just the Alzheimer's get together. Based on Roy during a pandemic you cannot. You can call for a barnstorming tour. You do me a favor. Tell me Jose Canseco would not show up tell Ricky Henderson would not show up. Tell me Mark. Maguire would not show up to an old school baseball tour old. Timey players not in front of fans just for our enjoyment on that. Billy Barry Bonds can make his return to be Dan. Barry Bonds. Are they in the danger zone when it comes to demo because for some reason I had the late Joe Dimaggio rolling roaming the outfield for some I had the players being older? You guys are making them fifty. I like you guys. Were just doing eighties nineties baseball. I was still going to like Phil. Rizzuto Yogi Berra all the people. I mentioned that I'm guessing Nolan Ryan could still come in. We'll give you nine innings. I mean he'll complete gay putting it on the poll at Lebatardshow. We'll Olen Ryan still give you nine and also did I just I just one hundred fifty dollars in fines to guts. Because I- Yogi Berra Phil Rizzuto and I think all of these people are dead.

Because I don't know if the betting odds have changed but the last time we checked and some things have changed since then the last time that we check the Patriots were still the betting favourite somehow in the which made me wonder what the Hell would have to happen to that team for it not to be the betting favourite when their quarterback position seems. Correct me if I'm wrong here. More unproven than any in the League. More mediocre more more awful than any in the league right now. How can they still be the favored under those conditions? That those betting stayed the same so it looks like they've changed with the bills of the slight favourite now to win the AFC playoff team a year ago. Patriots Lost Brady. Obviously so it looks like it's changed a bit. I would say ballot. Check would have to leave to the fact that he's still there gives people you know all right so mike. Greece is with us now on. Espn radio covers the Patriots. What are the reasonable expectations? Mike for that team and for that position. Thank you for joining us by the way. Great creativity with you and I would say there's no expectation and no indication that that I've received that the Patriots have any interest right now in Cam Newton and there's multiple layers to that. I would say the first part of it is they have invested in. Jared stood them their fourth round pick from last year and he's shown them enough that they wanna see more. That's the first part of it in simple terms and the second part of it is financially what they'd have to do to to even think about bringing Cam. Newton is significant. They're very tight to the salary cap with about less than two million worth of space. So if they even entertain that thought they'd have to move a lot of pieces around and they don't seem to be inclined to even be thinking along those lines right now. What did you think was the most interesting morsel of Brady leaving Tampa Bay and all the subsequent explanations that gave so to me? I would say the most interesting thing would be that it's sorta he. He was the leader of that decision. Like he never came back to them and said Hey. This is what I have I would on the market like what? What are you have to offer me? So basically the the idea of being once he started talking to other teams he was gone and it was different than situations in the past where the Patriots have let some of their high profile stars foundational type players. Go Out test the market. And then they have a dialogue and sometimes those players come back other times they leave but this was a situation truly where there there wasn't that conversation. Tom was just out the door. Where did the media fail where to Bella check fail? Where did the draft process fail that the Patriots Sign Kicker? And nobody realizes until he's already talking that he's got a three percent tattoo. Well that's a a long detailed discussion and I would say what. Let's let's break it down here and we're talking about The kicker from Marshall who has a tattoo on his left arm that he is now saying he is entirely It's associated with the three percenters group That some described as a right wing militia group and my understanding is that it was an honest mistake and the Patriots did their due diligence and they truly believe that and so if we take him at his word then that's what it is. I'm not sure there is a mistake other than maybe like. He was down at Marshall for two years and says it was never an issue. So I think to me it's reflective of how once you come to the Patriots and the NFL stage. The spotlight shines a lot brighter and now it becomes a story so that's part of it. I mean there's a lot more to it than that but that's sort of how I would break down. They could be an innocent mistake but that stretches credibility a lot. I understand you're being objective. And you're laying the facts out there as as as what he's claimed but what he claims seems really empty. Like it seems you. That's not the kind of tattoo want. No matter how flippant you are about tattoos and many people are these days. Just super flip. And that's not something you end up usually by accident and if you do do it by accident holy bleep. Is that some bad luck Mike. Well I mean ultimately would it comes down to is what's in your heart as a person right and unless we know that really really not really because the people aren't complaining about what was in his heart as a person they were complaining about what was on his arm but isn't what would be on his arm reflective of that. I would say so which part of the problem which is why. He's the controversy on his hands that he does yes. And and so we will I think just responsibly. To drill down deeper and say who are you what is in your heart right and. I think that's what we're talking about right and and I think I think I see where you could look at it and say the explanation doesn't seem plausible and you can have skepticism. I think that's fair. I also think like to at least give. I don't see the benefit of the doubt but let's flush it out before we make a final judgment is probably what I understand. But that I guess what my objection would be in. This isn't your fault. But one of my objections and Bomani Bomani Jones. Wrote a very good article about this at the undefeated that attitude that you just articulated is why. He wasn't as more difficult questions on the first day and there were no follow ups and the journalism was so flimsy and bogus. Because that's what he says okay and we've come to believe when the Patriots say it. It's not always the truth. Yeah and and and I think I can definitely I always look from a journalistic standpoint. What could I do better right? And I think it's in that situation sure could could could. I have asked Moore. I put it on myself. Sure I could have. He got asked the question he gave explanation. That doesn't mean it's over you're still working on it. That was just a first opportunity to ask those questions. You understand Mike that I'm not taking shots at your work here right you absolutely and and to be honest. I look at it like this. I anything that you say like I respect it like I hold myself to the highest standard and and I always ask myself. What could we do better? I want to get to the truth just as much as anyone. Is it over now when he says look? I'm going to get it covered. I'm GONNA get removed. It's not even that I'm going to cover it up. I'm going to get it removed. Is that over now because there were a number of things like I could totally understand. I can understand actually a reasonable oversight that a bunch of NFL cavemen simply didn't know what a tattoo meant. It's just particular this organization as meticulous as you need to be given that you had a murderer in your huddle and the tattoos were clues as you've had bad publicity every stretch you know that you more than any team in the. Nfl has to make sure that that's not the mistake that happened on your watch in that region I think my sense. They feel confident that they did all their due diligence. Like this wasn't a surprise to them. I would say I think the question was this over. I don't think so because I think the perceptions out there and now as the young man is set himself like he needs to prove it with his actions right and so to me like we're going to find out what he's all about and what is in his heart by his actions going forward. Mike years the the real pressing important question. Eighty six celtics versus ninety seven bowls. Who Wins Love it? Love it? Eighty six celtics right in my wheelhouse thinking to myself in the driveway bird Hanes NS. Johnson Robert Parish Kevin McHale team. How can I say that was my team? You're so happy to get that question. He was so much easier than talk more about that. Thank you for being with us Mike. We appreciate it all right. Guys have a great day.

All throughout the vet. So Tim Kirk Chin is with us. Now we've got a lot of questions for our friend. Tim Kurkin very few of them baseball. Related what percentage of time Tim Kirkman will answer just about anything? What percentage of time to him when we are seeing you on the Internet in a suit. Are you at home not wearing pants? I wear pants every day. Were shoes and socks. Every day we bid over this I wear sweatpants everyday. 'cause they're comfortable and most of the things. I do from home and any. Tv I do from home is all his shot of the waist up So yes of always wearing sweatpants. I'm always waiting sweatpants. So what percentage of people doing the news right now because news reporter was seen doing the news and he was about to get on his Peleton or something so he did it in shorts with a suit top when you're watching this on and during this time during the pandemic how often are you thinking yourself. I think that guy looks like someone who's not wearing pants. I think everyone's wearing pants. I think very few people are wearing shorts when they wear a suit coat. Because nothing look stupider than a suit coat and shorts but I'm sure nobody is wearing the full suit. That dress shoes and dress socks. If they're only being shot from the waist up. Would you agree that Frank? Vogel looks like the Guy. On antiques roadshow.

Big Toe in a commercial for Athlete's foot cream know what the hell's going to happen with baseball. Tim like what is what is the most plausible scenario. Do you think well Dan a natural naturally? I'm thoroughly confused like everyone else. Who thinks he's got? The answer is making a but we have to listen to all the plans because one of the plans. It's going to be close to being good enough to us and that's what we're GONNA do. I think it's a guest Dan. We're speculating everyone. Speculating that somehow. Some Way and don't ask me how we'RE GONNA play baseball in July. I think we're GONNA play an empty. I'm sure we'RE GONNA play an empty stadiums. I'm sure they're going to be. Maybe just Florida Arizona. Maybe one other area but this week is the first week that a couple of people that I talked to guessing just like me started to feel like. Yeah this is. We're going to get this together but as you know Dan. So many roadblocks in the way that just when you get excited one week that a couple of people who should know were encouraged next week that that encouragement could turn into being discouraged. That's how this works. The narrative changes every week. If not every day does will cain. Look like a get rich quick scheme.

Mike McCarthy looks like an Elvis impersonator ready to sit down the toilet one final time after crushing that large post performance plate of Texas Barbecue on the walk from the stage to the bathroom. A God. Tim How how your day's been different you because the rhythms for a long time now you are. Somebody who put put writes the box scores down every single day. You keep your notes baseball. The timing of baseball something that has been a landmark in your life. For WHAT THIRTY FIVE FORTY YEARS? Yeah more than forty And yes I missed. Vox corners terribly in the morning. I don't know what to watch on television at any point unless Michael Jordan's on or something like that It's really weird. I have as I told you taken on this writing project which has taken an enormous amount of time so instead of sitting at my desk and going through all the box scores and doing my box score book by hand. Like a seventh grader I just right every day. I write every morning because before everyone wakes up that quiet this time around here so so and I'm used to working from my house of just not used to working from my house. You know forty nine days in a row. That's been the really weird part for me is you know. I think traveling's violation believe me. I don't enjoy traveling but it's been a huge part of my life and it's been weird not being anywhere but home for almost seven weeks. Jimmy Eighty six celtics ninety seven balls. Who Wins I think the eighty six Celtics win? I don't know how that both team has great. Is that Bulls team was. I don't know how they stopped that front line with Larry Kale and chief and Dennis Johnson Danny ainge. You could do a whole lot worse in your back court. Nobody can guard Michael Jordan prime. Nobody but if anyone can keep him under fifty it might be Dennis Johnson so I would say having never bet against Michael Jordan in anything on anything. I still think that Celtics team was a little bit deeper and that front line with three hall of famers was pretty darn good timmy. We were discussing earlier. That Manny Maria. Ramirez. Wants to come back at the age of forty eight in Taiwan and we thought because we are so starved for any sort of athletic guy here in the United States that I floated the idea to Dan. The guys that I think it would be great as long as they're willing to play test negative. Obviously they're not playing in front of fans. Don't you think that we would love? It would be a ratings monster many Ricky Henderson kids Saco mark. Maguire Nolan Ryan. Could still give you a complete game garage. Joe Joe Phil Phil Rizzuto Nolan Ryan Phil Rizzuto. Yes Bobby Mercer who else I mean. Timmy that will get monster. Numbers people would enjoy watching that with not. Yeah well people would love to watch. That guy's obviously 'cause they there's nothing else to really watch right now but back to something serious. You know this whole thing. That thing starts in baseball for you know until August the first and they're running out of time and all they WANNA do is have a two months tournament. There are people in favor of that. We'RE GONNA turn a baseball season into March madness. That's better than nothing and who knows if we might end up doing something like that. Yeah I think people are starved. I think they'd love to see Ricky Henderson play again because I'm sure he can still run the big differences though I believe is once you stop playing baseball for a long time. It's really hard to get it back. And yet you could put Larry Bird and a pickup game right now and he probably fourteen out of fifteen from the field because that motion never goes away. Does how long look like a Pencil? Eraser? Clinton hurdle looked like Bourbon. Tortune does Tim Kirk. Shin looked like the pastor who gives the celebrate celebrate talk to a Christian youth group and takes them all out for Vanilla frozen yogurt because quote. It's just as good as sex.

Espn radio all throughout the day. So in our sports lifetime STU gods there have been really as far as I can remember three major ego incidents that really derailed teams a big one so big that I wouldn't even classify Donovan mcnabb and Terrell Owens as one of them. The big ones the big ego blowups and sports have been. Jerry Jones with Jimmy. Johnson have been Kobe and Shaq. And have been what. You're watching on television right now where. You are all appalled at the idea that an executive believing organizations win championships and Michael is still out here in his hall of Fame Speech. Players Win Championships. You guys are showing that last segment. How the entire construct is built. Not In retrospect when we can all salute Michael Jordan because he conquered the organization. We all make arguments. On behalf of the organization. The player wouldn't be that organization if not for the organization versus the players. So now you find with the Patriots you find them in a position more than anyone that we've seen recently where they're saying to you if they intend on winning. Yeah we could do it any old way. We've been showing you any number of times. We just ran off. Tom Brady with something that felt like egos. So if you believe everything you guys were arguing last segment because the predisposition of the people listening to see not six championships and side with the organization. And what do you do with this from Darren Revell? Michael Jordan wanted most to sign with adidas quote. If you come anywhere close. I'll sign with you guys. Mj told me told them at the time because of a family feud time over control of the company. The German shoemaker. Adidas made no offer so I ask you this. If Michael Jordan goes to Adidas. Does he become what were celebrating in. A ten seer ten series documentary if it had not because Nike. Do it with anybody. Nitrile better neck. Nike's better at the marketing game than anybody. Never Mind sports than anybody. Well let me ask you this. Damn because you know how he's he's the biggest most popular athlete we've ever seen and his greatness cannot be disputed and so. I'm I'm asking you because the greatness was unlike any other great we've ever seen don't you think he has the same impact on Adidas that he did on Nike? How steph curry doing with all that game. Changing Steph curry is now Michael Jordan. Understand understand but he was on his way like he was on his way to being sort of the modern day version. If that team had stepped together like understood. Steph curry is not Michael Jordan. But I'm asking you the question your siting there with Michael Jordan. Under all circumstances you're saying Adidas Becomes Nike. That's what you're arguing right. I'm saying Jordan becomes Jordan regardless of the Shoe Company and yes I am saying that indeed is becomes Nike Jordan chooses to go to Adidas. Yeah because it was that special. That's interesting because I feel like you're forgetting all the marketing like Adidas doesn't do marketing like that. I think you're forgetting how much the marketing machine had to do with making him that because he wasn't doing it for himself he wasn't a colorful personality himself. I think you're you're also forgetting that Jordan provided them with that with the. I understand what you're saying but Jordan. His presence choosing Nike provided that with a lot more marketing dollars to then go out and market Michael Jordan. So and I think he would have had the same impact on deed as I really do. I think he would've brought that much income into Adidas M- you saw the special Michael Jordan didn't get to become Michael Jordan until he was winning the championships like that was deep into the Nike run. That was after years and years of the Nike stuff. And then then they banked on him and then they turn Lebron James into same version but like I think it's a good question Put It on the poll. If Michael Jordan goes to Adidas instead of Nike Does Adidas end up becoming Nike? Because you're you're giving next to no credit to the organization. They're still got you're giving up you know you're saying you're saying either one of them. The organization in both instances only needed the player to make him Michael Jordan. That Nike would have been what the film might would have been an afterthought that we'd know the name instead of the people run Adidas. Yes I don't know Phil Knight becomes an afterthought but yes I am saying whoever gets his foot whoever gets his foot and they're sneaker they turn out to be Nike. Just so happened to be Nike. But you did bring up a good point. Perhaps something I've forgotten them all the way that Nike marketed Michael. Well before Michael everyone a title and I I am not certain. Dita's would have done the same exact thing at the same exact way. Perhaps they would have waited until they finally won the titles and then started. The marketing campaign. Nike did not. They were doing it years. They were doing when he was still losing to the Pistons so.

We'll be an honor serving to people who I have never played in any reindeer games. It's Bob and Sheri. Christmas countdown is on today. We are exactly one week away from the Big Day. When I got up this morning I learned to cool things on my stay in history at? Did you know that it was this this day in eighteen ninety two that we had the world premiere of Tchaykovsky Nutcracker Ballet. No kidding. Isn't that cool week before Christmas. Christmas eighteen ninety two. And there's another exciting thing that happened on this day on this day in one thousand nine hundred seventeen the US Congress ratified edified the eighteenth amendment. Which of course was prohibition? We all know how that went up. Didn't work out well not workout out. Isn't it kind of crazy to think about that. There was a time when we tried to outlaw booze in the whole country now and now now baseball has approved marijuana. It's not on the on the tests unknown substances. Not for the fans in the ballpark fans. Now my to smoke weed and then sit around for nine innings plus. That's a lot to ask for a fan. That might be the only way you can get me through ninety minutes. Let's be honest this long day. There were a couple of other really interesting things On this day in my APP One of them was on this day in nineteen forty four Nazi fires in Amsterdam destroyed all the city's electricity plants on this day and then The TV show to tell told the truth the game show that premiered on CBS on this day in Nineteen fifty six and then also on this day in nineteen fifty six a man that I only knew from late Nineteen V. Commercials when I was a kid in Philly but apparently he had a whole other career that I was unaware of. WHO's this he signed on as the New New York Yankees Radio TV announcer Phil Rizzuto? Go resor. Yeah I did not know that Phil Rizzuto was anything other than a late night local. TV He pitched me in Philly kidding. Oh he must have done that after he retired. I guess yeah because when I was skinning when I was scanning through this day on my app and it was like on this day Phil Rizzuto fellers because that's all I know is from late night TV did. Did he play shortstop or second base shortstop. What's The for the Yankees? Here's another sports thing that I bet maxwell remember it was on this day. You're you're not old enough to have been there obviously but on this day in nineteen sixty one and Wilt Chamberlain scored seventy points playing for Philly. I've read that. Yeah against the Lakers. Seventy eight points. It's just amazing. Scored one hundred points points in game once. Did he really. He did On this day in nineteen sixty four it was the world premiere of the Pink Panther Cartoon. No no kidding. Isn't it interesting. How days so many things happen on this day? There's a book you can get This happened on your birthday which which is really cool thing. I I've never purchased one but I've seen them in gift stores kids on this day in nineteen sixty six the world premiere on. CBS TV. The of how the grinch stole Christmas you know you can go to store DOT NY Times Dot Com and you can order the front page of The New York Times on your birthday. Oh that would be fun gift. Yeah I thought it would be to at school On This Day nineteen in eighty four. The movie a Christmas Carol Starring George C Scott as Ebenezer Scrooge That era lots and lots and lots of Christmasy stuff on this day because we're we're a whole week away and now I will tell you that America's all time favorite Christmas movie. They did a survey. Do you want to guess what it is. Let me see America's all time UNFAV Christmas you know. My go-to is a Christmas story. But I don't think that's it. I think that it's National Lampoon's Christmas. No you're I guess was right. That's right is it really. Do you want me to run through the twenty most favourite beloved Christmas. You started with number one so just go down okay. Number one is a Christmas story followed by Charlie Brown Christmas. It's a wonderful life planes. Trains and automobiles home alone is number. Five the polar express express number six which surprises me only because the animation is a little creepy treason. Automobiles is a Thanksgiving movie. I think and so when I saw it on that list I was a little surprised is by that die hard hard as make it at the holiday they say. Oh it's not really number. Seven is National Lampoon's Christmas vacation number eight is home alone. Two lost in New York number nine is the shop around the corner number. Ten Santa Claus is coming to town. Number eleven is the Jim and carry version of how the grinch stole Christmas. No thanks number. Twelve Christmas carols from nineteen thirty eight number thirteen a Christmas carol from from two thousand nine. Can you. Can you pause for a minute. What the shop around the corner do you know what that is? It's a very evocative title but I I think. They remade it as community with Tom. Hanks Tom Hanks makes that makes sense. Offense number fourteen is a miracle on thirty Fourth Street. Number fifteen is a Christmas carol from one thousand nine hundred nine number sixteen I think. That's the bill. Murray Christmas Carol. Mighty nine hundred scourged number sixteen at Christmas Carol. Nineteen fifty one number. Seventeen is white. Christmas number. Eighteen is the original.

I had kind of a building. DM In my instagram last tonight and it was from a woman who said if there's not a war on Christmas why haven't you Bob topped about Christmas. We're used the word what and I looked at that and I thought you must. If she hadn't used your name I would have thought she tapped the wrong profile. Listen send that message because I felt we talk about Christmas nonstop around. You're using the word It's been the majority of our material for what three three weeks Chris. I mean I can think of a couple of times. We weren't talking about Christmas. There's Lori Loughlin and her problems royal family and their problems was that we don't use the word Christmas usually Christmas confidently although I do want to wish her a very happy Honda days. I do the war on Christmas. It's not being fought you gotta different battlefield on Christmas Hannukah Kwanza Festivus however and whenever and wherever you celebrate a word. We're onboard. We're on behind today's holiday. Jalali Happy Holiday kits people these days during. Yeah there's there's people who are angry they wake up angry are- empty look for a target. Right that's what she did there and then there are. People who the most important thing in their world is to have something go viral. Let me give you the example. This is the greatest example of that. There's a twenty nine year old guy whose name is Orlando Henderson. He's in Charlotte and he's an employee. Khloe it a wells. Fargo Bank apparently early this year. He gradually stolk money out of the bank full according to the Charlotte Observer and CNN and over over time he had stolen eight thousand dollars which meant he finally had enough cash to make huge stacks so that he could pose for for facebook and instagram photos with the eighty eight thousand dollars that he has stolen that eventually led the US Attorney's office to him and he's now been arrested for financial institution fraud. Nineteen counts of theft embezzlement misappropriation and twelve counts of making false entries in money laundering. All in all he's facing up to forty years in prison and a one point two five million dollar fine all because he wanted to pose with the stacks of money and make it go viral. He had a goal. You're always wanting to have A. He had the money they wanted for it to go viral so he could be famous well. He's stupid I think we have to. We have to own that. He's still young especially a young guy. How could you not put tune to saying if I- ARLANDO Henry Landau if I suddenly pictured with eighty eight thousand dollars in stackable cash? Someone like gets suspicious. You know. That's not the only only thing you post it I think I saw that.

He's a Moron Complete Idiots Laurent's in the news. I can't believe this guy is still alive. A guy in England was stuck in traffic last Saturday and he decided to spray an excessive amount of air freshener in his car with the windows up and right after he was thinking up the car but right after he finished spraying all of that he lit a cigarette. And he didn't let the car ventilate I. It caused a massive explosion that blew out his windows including his front and back windshields it also broke the windows of some nearby nearby businesses and the doors and trunk of his car were damaged to in photos. It looks like this car is total and luckily I don't know how he he walked away from it with just some minor injuries. If car stinks and you spray something in it to get rid of the stink and then you you light up a cigarette that you just what you just did. Science Needs to be taught in the schools. I think so.

And then after the game ended they hopped in the SUV went to a bar and continue drinking then they got back in the SUV and they got into an argument and they began punching each other. They eventually only got out of the vehicle and began trying to flag down passing cars whilst we each other and this is what brought them to the attention of the county sheriff's Office.

This song after twenty five years is number one on the billboard charts firing elite and so she had a big party Believe it was yesterday and in an invited all of her friends musicians and catered I guess uh her place she got like five hundred dollars worth of takeout and brought it and they had a little celebration for this song going to number one. I wonder what it was that all of sudden this kicked you know it's been around has been played every year with the last two or three years. It's become ubiquitous is thrown up the white flag we surrender and yeah. I think it's a great song. I wonder how many times in the history of Pop music a song has gone to number one after being released for such a long time. I don't think ever ever ever I feel like needle Sohn's before maybe a Beatles album Max's would have gone and I think there's another one but we'd have to you know you're supposed to winter. I mean there are songs. They went to number one but they like Oh the song that was from ghost that the righteous brothers sang unchained melody leave. That became a head again while the song the the twist like Chubby checker. That went to I think number one and then the next year because that dance became this big sensation number one number one again. Dan One year later is Mariah the first time in history that a song took this long to go to be. It's got to be unless it's a beatle album. That was you know re released because it was remixed. Whatever that that's the only other thing I could think of the other reason the song finally went to number one because it's a Christmas song? It has a limited window of airplay you know July to December. That's true because right after after the fourth I know we put up our trees. Maybe it takes longer for a song to get traction when it's a themed song like maybe David. Maybe but you have to move a lot of copies and get a lot of airplay be number one and you would think it's you know it's only going to be a song by Bieber somebody but he liked that that's brand new but anyway posted the greatest thing. 'cause this song makes me think of the movie love. Actually I know so. I posted the greatest this thing on our facebook yesterday. It's love actually for cats so you know that iconic scene in love actually were injured. Lincoln is outside cure nightly department in London. Any he held up a sign and he says say it's carolers and he plays the boombox Christmas music and he has the cue cards to me. You are perfect right right right okay. Well it's been re cut by some genius with way too much time on his or her hands instead of Curie nightly it's a cat fluffy black cat with this. Look on its face. Lincoln and the cue cards are saying you know even though you scratch my clothes and our chewing my headphones headphones right now. To me you are for fact looking woman. Put it together together. Whoever it was was they don't they don't work in this business because they had all day to get older anyway? I'll on every link that so that you can go see that it is it. Is Bob Lobban. Cherry for people with Heart Disease Asthma and cancer. The flu can hit hard. If you're not feeling well take your temperature frequently with the Exegen. Temporal scanner is Bob and Cherry so so it was either yesterday or the day before I was telling you guys what happened when I went into the store to buy a gift card The employee was like have you been coerced or threatened into buying this gift card. I didn't realize she was talking to me. I'm looking around as you. She's talking to then. I had to sign something saying that. I had not been coerced or threatened. Then it went to Walgreens to buy another gift card and had the same conversation and thought what the actual heck is happening here. Amy's with us right now and she knows all about this because she worked in retail in the whole loss prevention thing. Hey Amy welcome to the show. Amy Good Morning. So what's the deal with this so like what happens as and Obviously they are scammers and they'll call in they'll keep calling everybody's number until they get that one person elderly person who is convinced that they really worked for Social Security or the irs and will convince them that. Hey It's you don't go and get the gift card loaded. They you could be facing three years in praising raising or anything like that which my dad was a victim of it at one point because he has trouble reading so he was convinced that that letter really came from the IRS. Read the letter words or misspelled or whatever so it's obvious but when they go in and get that gift card and they have to call that person back and they give that person not only that gift card information now that person can wine either return for cash or two. They can use that gift card to make their own purchases online They even do that for retail stores. Let's say like maybe somebody had worked for a retail for but they'll call in and they'll be like hi we're from whatever their corporate for is and tell them you know we seen issues wrong with your register and they'll tell them go grab a gift card because they're going to make sure their registers at working right and they'll happen happen. Do all the prompts and it tells them exactly what by plush where they actually just loaded that gift card with maybe two thousand dollars or whatever. Good Greece so the person who's doing the scam does not need to physically have the gift card. They just being to know what those numbers are on that card. That's all they need and then they can use that to buy something. Yeah because I had a gift card that some gave me and I just I just used I just read the numbers off and put it in. I didn't know he's buying it online. Yeah Gift Card. So Amy The it was walgreens they wouldn't they have a limit on how many gift cards you combine a day. Is that for the same reason gets almost everywhere. There's two reasons because almost everywhere on your only a limit of so many gift cards or your limit of so much like money per transaction for Gift Card in not anywhere that sells gift cards now because like I said one. They're using them for stand in two they're also using them for for terret dot part. I'm not a hundred percent. Sure on what they're doing But like cell phones you go into. Let's say Walmart he can only purchased just to. At and T. cell phones during one transaction. Because anything more than that they actually have to. The company has to call and report it because it could be a possible terror threat You know I was at CVS last night. And I bought a gift card. which is you know we have all these kids? And that's all they want right and so in order took the gift card the CVs employee was like before. I sell you this gift card and give you a four and a half foot long receipt. I'm going to need to see your driver's license and I was like back it up sister. I'm not buying any SUDAFED. What drivers she's like? I need your license and so I gave her my license and she gave me the Gift Card and afford half foot long. Yeah did you see. There's a meeting going around online. Finally mice yeah great use for CBS. Receipts people are wrapping their gifts. So so Well that's interesting. People are horrible aren't they. There there are some people that are just absolutely horrible. However it's interesting? It's interesting that you said that the terrorists are involved with we forget. The terrorists need money to continue their terror. That whenever I'm such as simple minded pollyanna amy. None of that had occurred to me. No right and you know I've always said we have all of us thought that these people come up with these ideas that they make to go. Make these purchases or make these Bombs oddities cell phone. Could you imagine what our world would be if they would actually go and do something good. We say that we say that all the time when you you hear about a criminal whose devised this amazing plan to break into some think the guy the guy has figured out how to get into through locks through windows every a getaway away if the guy had just put that to good use job get a job to take all of those brains and all of that clever problem solving and do something with it.

We hated to pull you out of EH share with us your favorite Christmas memory. You know it was Gosh I would go back probably ten years ago and Right outside Chicago. I grew up in a house. Who's actually Jason Retour? Hillary Hillary Clinton grew up. Yeah Yeah just kitty corner from it's it's a lavish mansion by anything but beautiful setting snowing the holiday gathering's if you will with all of the neighbors person all family like a Christmas movie. I bet you all the kids drink downstairs because all the parents were upstairs and and Just the typical holiday scenery so and I go down to the basement where we have the pool table. And there's this cloud of smoke in. I'm thinking this this is nine one one. This isn't good. This is normal so I run upstairs upstairs to my dad. I said debt. You gotta get downstairs. There's smoke coming out of the wall and in. Wow It's pretty sure thing so we're all in. I don't want to have intoxicated variant really. I thought you were going to say I want to say the toxicology we just had one or two very pretty well lit be honest. I mean if you're getting pulled over the walls are on and fire. Well there was an. It's an older house. There's like this trap door where where the fireplaces on the second floor and they're the ashes fall down this pit which goes down second terrible plan. Ah I've never heard about this is it's maybe a house that was built in nineteen twenty or something like that and it's a pets that just gathers yeah. There's all this ashes. We never knew about that. So the pit caught on fire after a couple of decades of of of being there and again. We're all kind of Sh- knocker in all right. What do we do? Of course everybody's everybody's laughing and then the fire department shows up. The police department shows up. The neighbors are coming out in. There's an aunt in every family that is just yes. Let's let's just call her carol. You know she has a name yeah. Let's say she has a mustache in the story grows warmer Tim did they. was there actually a fire in the the Ash pit. I have another question too. Is this the moment that you all discovered that there was a trap door. Smoking pit in your home while the fire while you're not a police officer but the the the fire chief the came in and said it's trap door so we have a trip to order house so so he he goes down and pulls it open. And then that's where the fire was so the fire actually did go up the wall and so there was an actual fire in actual fire. Are they happy with. Let me just say good home inspector. That's always the house was the way what so all the time that that house had been built and that trap door pit situation had been there. No one had probably ever cleaned it nobody to win new. Who knew about that? You don't go in your wall so I I. It was a surprise to us. I don't WanNA say sobered up. I looked at the police chief. He looked at me and said you know give shovel said for what it goes for this pit. You mean the the ash whole could that bring smile to the face of a guy who's put out fires at Christmas shopping. This is a memory. Wow so so was the portal to hell Christmas. I couldn't believe it. Yeah I'd never heard of such a thing common in houses and bit it is. Let's go is going. Tell your partner that he's more of that. There's a fire pit trap door and every house. I've never heard of that either. It's it's no that can't be safe so maybe when the house was built heating it with the wood burning fireplace was thing Cole or coal. Yeah it was there. Yeah it was probably cool. So did they have to take their firemen acts and break through the drywall ninety. They went through the drywall. And they cleaned it out loud and it was It's not just the wall to everything.

There there are ten of these things and almost all of them have to do with airlines and In ascending order flights getting cancelled waiting to pick up your bags at the baggage claim. Long security lines at the airport. That's one that gets me. I start thinking about them on the drive to the airport flight delays getting to the airport and realizing you forgot your. Id I check my.

They finally gave it to you at that point. Well all my problem where I had to hand over my driver's license and they said we will check his phone when we take it out of the safe. Because I dialed it. It comes up is Sherry on Bob's phone and my driver's licenses Shero and they were like well doesn't look like it's it's the same person. Oh here we go with Bob and Robert so again.

There are a lot of celebrities. There but Brad Pitt was there he. He arrived at seven o'clock and he stay till the end of the party. Of course that means that they're making love at least three times a day. They're spending the next three hours cuddling and then they're going looking for a new house near a good school. Finally having that Fayard pride I love Brad Pitt. He's such a great actor but he's such a freak you know. He does an interview where he says. Well basically I spent The nineties stoned every day. You know alone because I was too shy guy to go out and I was. I was concerned about the way I looked. Come on Bradley. Show F after all of these Jennifer Aniston headlines and all of these magazines for the last seemingly twenty years he shows about the party and stays for five hours. It's it's a hoot. I think that The part of the reason we want Brad and Jennifer to get back together is it. It's the same story line that runs in some of our heads about the old high school or college boyfriend or girlfriend. Yeah that's right you know like oh can never get away from true love you know. Maybe that was the one. We've made eight all sorts of mistakes along the way. Maybe that's the one run run. So we root for Brad and Jen I mean remember when Facebook I popped not Nima. Were leaving their spouse right and left. They were high school boyfriend and girlfriend. I wonder if that's continued. Or if that was just like a a flash in the PAN. I'm sure you don't hear about it very much anymore. Because I don't think it's as big a novelty as it was. Do you remember when we did An appearance in Hudson in New York and we stayed at a downtown hotel and There was a high school reunion. There was a high school reunion that was being held in in the ballroom of it was. It's a small hotel but they had the high school reunion from the Local high school or somewhere in the area and It was like the twentieth anniversary and the people in the room next to me. I think we're at the high school because people came from out of town and and there is a couple in the next room I swear to God rejoin never you. He must have been the quarterback and she had to be the head cheerleader. Because I think they were really enjoying that reunion union. I guess that happened. She think that happens at every high school Reno Nodong. I've never gone to a high school reunion so I don't know what happens at the friend of mine went to his high school reunion just last year and It'd been actually more than twenty years. And he said the biggest problem was AH people who didn't wear name tags semi couldn't recognize now some of them as soon as he saw them look exactly they look exactly the same but some of them had changed for whatever reason the guys lost hair or they put on weight or whatever but there were there were changes to the point that you did not know who that person was and he said he was talking with someone for five minutes. Not Knowing who he was talking we was talking to but they knew him. Max Has Gone. Yeah were there people there. No you didn't recognize it all what they always have done it at the reunions is. They've always put your Senior picture on your name tag. Oh that's smart more than the way that way you know because a lot of times you know women their last names have changed and and whatnot so they did that in and that certainly made it a lot easier but were there people who wouldn't have recognized yeah absolutely might might friends the depressing part of it was not really. I'm not recognizing some of the people but as you went up to get your name tag there was a placard that said those will remember and pictures folks who who for one reason or another had passed away. Yeah and sometimes you. I'm GONNA guess you didn't know they passed and we got to get your name. Didn't you know and and all of a sudden Oh. He played eight on the football team. Yeah now with facebook you know that because like my graduating class has a facebook page and so you get updates on what's going on. Oh is that right. Yeah yeah that would make sense. Yeah with facebook. It would be easier to figure that out so you're never going to go to high school reunion. Probably not no. It's just never going to be a thing you know. It's just never been a thing. I mean I didn't have these wonderful high school memories. To begin with I hated it. You Know I. I'm very very jealous of people who we just had the Wonderful Sandy and what's his nanny Danny experience in high school. That wasn't the case for me at all. Should they got into college. I was happy man because I felt like an adult. I mean that's been part of my problem growing up in the restaurant business. You're around waiters and busboys waitresses and cooks and dishwasher around adults. You know you wanted to be an adult. I wanted to be doled. Who'd been it has no? It's funny I wanted to be an adult at the age of ten but look what I do for closed. It's the most child can fake. I'm wearing sneakers stories. I've only missed one and not because I particularly loved high school but I have a couple friends that always go and it's an opportunity to see them and catch up. No I think it's wonderful. I think it's great thing to go. Go to one you. Should you should commit to go into one. I need to go to one. Yeah no I think that would be. It's one of the most powerful women in radio. Yes in every one of you have that on your name tag. Just just put it right other IPAD. I've had to look look at the damn thing for a year. Now the love twenty twenty please come Read at once and you read it again. I can't believe this it's Bob and cherries and believe leave the well. Well well. facebook comes clean. They are watching you shop in stores and eat get restaurants. And that's why after you walk through I'll just pick what off top my head. You walked through best. Buy You buy anything but facebook seem. We know you were there worse. You Walk through best buy and you bought something on your credit card and now your news feeds including on Instagram are choked with ads for best Bri and that product that brand. You just bought. How does it work? Well the first way it's working and first of well. How did we get this information on? FACEBOOK has admitted it. Okay the first way it works is With your credit card if you have paid with your credit card that's how they know and here's why no. FACEBOOK has partnered with a bunch of different retailers and brands across the world to grab your data so they have to have a partner with the retail outlet and for retailer wants to target customers with ads on facebook it sends facebook details of what was purchased and with the information they have about the person who bought it So that the the site can match up the profile. And it's all done using the name on your credit card facebook admitted that they only need just a very few data points from retailers in order to create that custom audience for advertising. But there's a way that you can opt out and it's in your ad settings on facebook so How do you do it? You go to the ad and you can allow or not allow ads from partners KFC Dick's sporting goods. macy's these they're all some of the brands that facebook has admitted that they are partnering with well. Now you know why it's happening. It's not your imagination and they are not your friends. It's well now. Your friends are on facebook but facebook is a business. It is not your friend so if you go into your on facebook ads settings. There's there's some things you can do to opt out of that kind. Of Targeting. The thing is I believe that when you're when you sign into facebook you're you're kind of automatically opted into everything so you have to go and Cherry pick all the stuff you're opting out of the. Would you like to do that for me as we as soon as we're we're in the next song didn't I fix something for you. The other day did a very good job. Keep it up. It's it's so good to be needed. It's not your imagination and there are other things that are happening. There's other kinds of surveillance that's happening with your like your Google Assistant to stand and your Amazon Echo and all that kind of stuff freaky facebook has admitted. Yeah you got us. We're doing it. I walked out of a store in Chicago and I looked at my phone and they knew I was there and I had a whole bunch of offers. I hadn't even gotten out of the store. I I are already purchased what I need it. You gotTA disable your location services. Basically you have to leave your phone at home and put on it snugly fitting tinfoil hat and use cash and use cash. That's where we are now. See people have laughed at me for still using cash. I'm one of the few people I know you. And your husband husband me and your husband. Ah to the few people that I know who are still heavily using cash. I can't have cash because my youngest child has has been trained by law enforcement to be able to smell it so you know as you'd like it you now unfrequently and frequently. I have cash right so so infrequently I have more than ten dollars But I got a check in the mail for one of the girls and I decided to cash it and give them the cash to go Christmas shopping. So I've got the cash in one of those bank envelopes in my handbag and I came into the kitchen and Cara Mia alerted. You know she. She stood up her ears. Went up and she pointed. I was like Oh yeah she can tell there's cash see. I'm the only one in our house that has cash. My wife does not carry any cash at all and so when Hampton needs gas money he will come in and say I can't drive winless I can put ten dollars. Do you have. And he knows that I've got it right there. And then his mother who was always pushing him to get part time jobs and everything can't figure out how he's driving that car around because she is withholding money from it's it's like the miracle of the loaves fishes Hamptons Gas Well I wish they'd stop doing purpose vision in this world. I'll post this up on our facebook. We'll see a facebook allows me to do that and then you can go in and look at your ad sightings and maybe reduce the amount of garbage that you're getting bombarded with very good talk back teacher teach on the free and Sherry APP and leave us a message.

They called the Moscow rules. Now the name of a new book take co wrote before Tony's death so she has retired. How cool would it be? You're at a party or something and someone says so. What do you do? I'm the chief the skies. I'm getting gas. You never get to say that. I'm GonNa Guess you say things like I work in accounting hounding for the government which you're not allowed to say now why you and I would not be allowed to work for the CIA. Well that's not the only reason unfair but She's not retired so she's able to do that and she has a book. Sister and brother-in-law worked for them for years and they'd always go. We worked for the government which almost was code for your work. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I didn't know your sister worked for the CIA. My brother-in-law in charge of. Hr No but you can't you don't get to come come out and say it. No this is just another reason why I'm such a failure in families is well I mean. Look we work with. Can you blame them really. You're also the director of disguises. Max You guys are sloppiness. National Lampoon's vacation is coming back as a series. The National Lampoon. The National Lampoon vacation is coming to HBO. Max It'll be a half half hour comedy called the griswold and it will follow the family as they live their lives in suburban Chicago. It's being produced by Roseanne and Big Bang Theory Star. Dr Johnny Gillespie who played Rusty griswold in the nineteen eighty-nine Christmas vacation. I like it. I think it's got real thick. So what do you say that because because those characters are so clear I mean. It's kind of perfect. It's kind of your TV every week. If I gave you the synopsis this of a lot of iconic television shows if I said do you for example. I'm just going to pull this one right off top my head all right. It's going to be a show about this guy. Hi who works as an astronaut and his roommate who's a magical genius lives inside a bottle. Yeah I know but that was a long time ago. This is is now. Do you think that Clark griswold who is a genius at Inventing foods is going to be able to carry the whole think idea of national lampoon's Christmas vacation and European vacation was there was there was a focus. There was something that was going on a holiday. Vacations shows characters. Those characters can carry life. Fighting's why fight will you'll even know who the actors are yet. The concept is strong. What do you think Max I think it it is yeah? I think it's just because people got a group of people we got a millionaire and his wife We've got a movie star. We've got a professor. We've got the girl next door captain in the first meet wait wait. They're going to go on a sightseeing ride. They're going to get lost on an island and never be rescued and turn coconuts. Into Radio's millionaire have enough money for his own boat. You'd think because I'll tell you what I think Thurston held the third leg other. Millionaires cleaners was lying here. There's a lot of that going around so anyway. That's a couple of things and finally there is a marketing and company in Bolton England pulled the audit lab and they are offering to their employees hangover days. If you've tied one on and you don't feel well the next day you can call in and say and you use those words. I need a hangover day. They've been doing it for about six months. And they say nobody has taken in advance of it to the point where they say we have to kill it. So it's just their their philosophy is just beyond beyond is not going to get anything done here today. Probably be kind of like. Hey it's Sherry from the Bobbin shares show I thank you so much for listening to our podcast. We really appreciate you. You're the reason that we do it.

My first grandson Christian look so much like my daughter. Landon that it is scary. She has posted side-by-side photographs of herself when she was like two and and Christian and I mean they look exactly alike except the Ramsey has a darker complexion and Christian in has his complexion. Is Beautiful. Skin it. It just blows my mind and I can't get enough of these little movies that she's sending to me in the pictures pictures. She sends them almost every day. You know you know people hate to see me coming. I think now guess. I can't stop myself from showing his picture his little movie and then going directly to thin on the beach. So if you're if you're coming up to me you haven't seen me in a while you're going to be with me for a few minutes. I think they do nobody minds. Some people don't give me the The excitement back that I feel I need from those pictures. I'm disappointed in them. I really am damn dog is amazing leaping through the surf. The kid looks just like my daughter and he's smiling and at the end of the little video. He raises an eyebrow. I Barat well ask yourself this. Have you given people the excitement. They deserve when they've showed you dog pictures and baby pictures I might have. I might I might very well might have pumpkin. Not only I might have. I very well might have you think you might have their chief so So here's the deal. I'm going to see Christian in Chicago. I'm going Solo probably in January and Mary in February. A Landon has landed lacy Jewish. We'll reach all jewelry company on the side and there's a there's a show where you buy beads and stones and jewels all in Tucson every every year. It's great big show. People come from all of the world and she wants to go to it so Mary said I'll go with you and you can go to the show and I'll take care of Christian during the day because Mary just can't get enough of getting her hands on this kit. She so excited so She's going to go doing that. And then we're GONNA take Christian Christian this summer for a whole week. I think it's in July so that they can go on vacation. So how well I know but I was worried that he'll be sad that his mother's not there. Mary said that heat he won't be old enough to really feel that way as long. There's somebody is well and he knows he knows you guys. He'll be with people who love but he doesn't really. I mean. Mary got a little toy. Where a puzzle where you can pick a A block up. And there's my picture pick another block with her picture and then pick up another block in it's it's their cat jazzy. Don't don't put ideas in your head like he'll we'll be sad why you won't put that idea in your head. Why let me? He sees her every day and she's cooing with him. And you know when violent my little niece comes the stay with me. She's delighted you. You know what I might do. She's thrilled this. MOM has a one year old and the one year old would cry every time she left the room so she got three life-sized cardboard cutouts of herself to get him to stop and it worked. That's interesting that that would be enough. Should just push the next to the CRIB. She puts the cardboard cutout and the kids stops yet. But isn't that think about like Bruno little unsettling it is a little unsettling. Yeah Kit will be twenty five years from now. It'll be in therapy gone. You know I know. My mother loved me but she was so rigid in blank and would stare at just stared and the crew. I would talk to these. Mommy picked me up. I should just stare flat. Look at the clock. I can't have a relationship now. Yeah maybe I went to that. I am a little nervous though. I'm a little nervous. Mary was the one pushing for it. She said I want that baby for a week. I want that baby for a week. Nick and I said okay. Well that's fine. And then she turned to me and she said you're doing some of the lifts in to their Papa. I said I know I know I'm a little nervous about it. You've raised how many kids A lot yeah I mean come on your what are you nervous about. It's been a while the infant. My parents loved it. They loved taking the kids. As a matter of fact my mom would fly from Arizona here to pick Grayson up and then fly back to Arizona and unfortunately when nine eleven happened Grayson was sitting in Arizona. Do you remember I do remember. His mother went sideways number. At one point I don't care what you do but here's the keys to the car. Get in the car and go get me my baby. I want my baby now. What did you do We just had to calm her down they eventually. He was stuck for another week and a half it. was you know you forget eat. Nobody forgets September eleventh. But you forget how much uncertainty there was so people couldn't figure out what was going on now is a redone. Something else can happen. It was all conjecture at this guys were empty and silent knew it was bad it was and I remember Melissa. God rest her soul. Melissa was I expected. Talk to be required to walk across America to get that kid. She was out of her mind but my parents loved him. My parents same as a matter of fact my parents took him to California. All kinds of stuff. We're going to do that. It's just an infant is a different creature. I can relate to a three year old. Oh no this quarter. I do full stuff. It's Bob and Sheri the Free Bob and Sheri very acid instantly. Get the PODCAST. The I'm Bob and Sheri Fun size. How when you were planning on ah doing that makes no sense? I just remember when you were like in your peak golf fees where where. You're trying to play as much golf as you could. And so every birthday Christmas and father's Day you've got golf crap from well For some reason I guess because I have have some pet cats the movie cats which is coming out in I think about eight days. Now it's coming out the day after Christmas right. Maybe a week I. I've seen cats the musical them trailers for the movie gives me the willies. I don't think I'm going to watch the movie just because I have cats doesn't mean I want to decorate with cats where things spike cats eat. Cats go to cats movies you ungrateful but I did read an interesting and funny anything about the movies. So the singer Jason Derulo plays rump. Tom Tiger which for anyone who's seen the musical. Thank you and rebel Wilson who I absolutely love from the pitch loose. She is great and everything she does. She plays Jenny any dots. which is one of the other main characters these are their jellicoe leaves? We did an entire show. I think on my trying to understand the whole jelly and I still really don't have a clue. Sorry this article about when they were shooting the movie Vegan and rebel. Wilson said. You know it's an iconic story but there's no comedy in it and that's true she's She's very talented actress. Species brilliant comedic actress. So she was improvising stuff and one of the things she did to get into character was they would be in their costumes. And if you've seen the movie trae alerts alerts really kind of unsettling I think she would they be all in costume and beyond set waiting to shoot and she just kind of like worker. Way over to Jason Derulo Doc. And she'd let them know and she helped the director. Let her because she's so funny and so fast they let her improvise a bunch of lines. Who knows how many of them will make it into so so she could improvise? She was on the cat score. She he was able while there's dialogue in two improvising and J. Syndrome state. It's every double entendre cat comment. You can imagine. Yeah but the idea of seeing rebel Wilson in that may swing me over to it. Although I'll probably wait till it's on demand Corden I lo- I love James Corden. What's the you know He? He would be perfect for one of those cats wouldn't he What's the buzz about it? Good or bad. Has Anybody read anything about Not really why don't you shut up. I don't I don't care what. Why did I even ask that? I know why do I WANNA know. That's your heart your long lifelong radio train. So you know it is just to try to keep it going even though this is playing in the background. And I'm talking to you about the movie makes use Oh bony no such a delightful. Oh conversationalist it's instinctive and reflexive now for you. To just whatever is being said. You can count on Bob to lean in and go. That is fascinating. So you've been collecting empty barbecue sauce bottles for how long alkyl name is Phil that's true. I don't know if it was something that I had. Because of my upbringing. My codependence or something. Something that I just grew doing a job like this where you know. You're going to sometimes interview people and you're interested in what they do but once in a while you know maybe not so so much right. Would you still have to keep going. Here's why I know that it comes from your upbringing and not from this job. Your upbringing made it possible. Awesome for you to be good at this job. It all comes down for me to that moment when you and your dad and your brother. We're going to go for a walk in the woods and you pulled your brother. Aside said can don't let me talk too much. I don't want to aggravate it was you're where where of the fine balance. Conversely that was a long walk and very very. Let's bring it up at this time of year. Cats behind new ooh Ah get the free bobbins Sherry instantly. Get the podcast the on cast and Bob and Sheri Van Cise we. We got a Bob and Sheri citizens and today. We recognize Canadian Ryan Peterson. He lives in Ontario and he was on his lunch break when when he decided that he was going to be the man to rescue three deer. That were stranded out on the ice near Nora and Ontario. Rescuers said that the ice was not completely frozen and there is no way to get a vehicle out. There was nothing that could be done for the deer. Well but Ryan is that Ken do Canadian and he just wasn't GonNa have that. He wanted to help the animals anyway so he went back to his job. He was on his lunch break. He went back to work and got some rope. nope and the ice was really thin and not completely frozen but Ryan had some ice skates in his car and he strapped him on and he skated gated out onto the ice to where the three deer were stranded and he took those ropes and he lassoed those dear any dragged them him to safety while the two younger dear immediately as soon as they were on land immediately took off to go off the dose stuck around a little bit but God bless his food his ice skating last suing Canadian survival skills. That is so Canadian. It's so Canadian and classic Canadian Canadian fashion. When he was celebrated as a hero he refused to accept it? Shrugging it off as something any good Canadian with a pair of ice skates in the last Su would have done quite like that man or Molson. I say that's fantastic. The New York Post came out with an article about the top cities cities in the United States for new years. Do you want to know where they are. Just celebrate New Year's celebrating new years and it's based on you know the number of bars the number of liquor stores as the number of restaurants What kind of celebrations are going on so In ascending order they are Philadelphia. Miami San San Francisco Orlando Atlanta Los Angeles San Diego. Vegas is number three number two in Denver and the number one party place for New Year's is Trautmann North Carolina. It's New York's. I'm so when I found out that people wear adult diapers to Times Square. I was like wow. It takes the Glamour of well. I wasn't there for how cold it is and how crowded crowded it is right now. I'm cold it's crowded and there's nowhere to go up riches and there's no no. I've only done it once. I think I've told you when I was a kid my buddies and I without telling our parents took the train in from new haven to New York and it was scary. It was not only cold but we are surrounded by a lot of drunk adults and let me just say we got right to Times Square so we were in the crush and this is like at ten thirty at night and That was I think the first moment that I realized at the age of fourteen that there were some perverts in the world. That's how close humanity was. Well worry you the the lucky innocent to get all the way to nineteen before you discovered fourteen fourteen fourteen fourteen. Okay Yeah Yeah that's about that's about the age when we all discover them so I turned. I turn to my two Buddies Ritchie Chan. Paul and I said you know this is not as much fun as I thought it was going to be and we took the train. Back home to Richie's house. An appearance never knew that we'd even even been there and we watched it on TV. It's taken me like all my life to give myself permission to be Introverted person who doesn't want to wear an adult diaper and be cold in in a crowd and I'm not sorry not sorry like it's just not my scene to know the last couple of years if my memory serves me it's been miserable. The weather wise for the ball drop in New York as and it wasn't because I was watching. I think What's his name Anderson Cooper and the guy who does the housewives Andy Cohen Andy Cohen and their countdown? They look miserable who which show is it? That has Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg August that Ryan seacrest took the Dick Clark. Yeah I I have like a inexplicable fascination with watching Jenny Donny. Together I have no explanation for not a lot of energy. There's yeah and they seem very happy together and somehow they managed is to not look like two people that are freezing while wearing adult diapers. Don't you think watch the whole show. But I'll I'll turn it on and watch the ball job pushed you think it strange that it's still call. All Dick Clark's Rock and New Year's Eve. I mean Dick's been gone for several years. Now but he's he's that's what kind of brand manager. Yeah was that even beyond his life. It's still obliged to Clark if you change the name you lose like my mom you think. I think that's what it is. Yeah I do. I do think their whole swaths of the audience that like they understand. What Dick Clark's Rock and New Year's Eve is they know what to expect? Expect that makes sense like okay. Dick Clark's Rock and New Year's Eve. The minute you changed that name then maybe maybe you've changed the show to. He had he and his wife had a A condominium in New York City beautiful one evidently I was listening to an interview with. I don't know who the musician was but musician that Dick Clark new from way back and the guy said dickey's to let me use the the condo because he only used for two days a year and I was coming up and New Year's Day. That's that's what you show you're rich when you're going to be somewhere for two days and you say to yourself I can't stand hotels. Let's by yeah please. Yeah and and probably part of it I mean Dick had all the money in the world but part of it was probably. He just didn't want to be bothered. People coming Turan hotel although he was the friendliest when you did we were did meet him. Yeah Yeah well get your adult diapers ready his account down. Now it's Bob and Sheri the affair.

Download the free Bob and Sheri website or wherever you get your podcasts Blob and Jerry and if you've never listened to our odd cash which is Stuff that we don't do on the show can't do on the show or wooden for whatever reason that's fine that's fine Baba near happy to just work for free complete obscurity. So don't feel any pressure there but if you've never listened to it it's it's something different every single episode we. It's it's silly sometimes sometimes serious serious Sometimes there's questionable language or or topics that Perhaps not appropriate for broadcast. I well the the most recent episode that released on Monday December sixteenth. Two Thousand Nineteen That episode is called journey of souls. It's about a book that I read read About a therapist who works with people who deal with traumatic and unresolvable physical pain and various things in any way this therapist sort of Kind of not accidentally. That's not the right word but found himself specializing in past life. Regression with with clients using hypnotherapy and Bob thinks it's like that bogus but I wanna read a message from our listener. Susan who said I just listened to Monday's odd cast them so glad you're reading that book. Isn't it fascinating. I actually found a therapist who trained at the Newton Institute and I have an appointment with her January. She leads clients into childhood. Good memories back through the birth experience into the womb where guide usually shows up then back into a past life that holds answers for your particular questions then she takes you through the death breath process in that life and into a pass life review with your guide. It's a four hour process and I can't wait. She said the experience changed her life. And I'm so looking forward to gaining additional perspective. I just made my New Year's resolution for twenty twenty. I WanNa do you WanNa go to a therapist like that. Yeah I WANNA do a regression like I'd be interested in knowing how that turned out. Would you. Would you be willing to do that. I don't know I mean the idea about if I held your hand and took Zach's B.'s. Afterward would you be interested in doing. They have my attention. The is the idea that I regress into another previous life off is kind of scary because you don't know what that life would be. Everybody thinks that it would be benign but all of a sudden you're regressing into a situation where you are a fifteen year. Let me just make something up and this actually happened to some Americans. You're a fifteen year old boy and you're on a battlefield somewhere in the eastern part of America and you are fighting British troops. You're hiding in the woods and you're not even even old enough to shave and you're you're just barely old enough to shave and these troops are trained to stab you to death with their Muskets that have these long knives. They're trained to do that. You're fifteen years old and you're hiding behind a tree that to me. I mean those guys were amazing. They were brought up rough and tumble. So it's it's they weren't brought up like me you know The reference thing that I had experienced was lighting the dishwasher in my a father's restaurant. But suppose all of a sudden you're on a battlefield like that my God that would be scary or you're in a trench. Nineteen seventeen is a movie that's out it's about Battles in World War One. I mean most of those were killed. It would be terrifying. But here's another way to look at it and here's one of the great comforting comforting truths that Came out of that book that I read. Journey of souls Yeah you we could regress you back to flanders field or we could regress you back due to the battle of cow pants. We could regress you back to being a plague victim or a caveman. Getting your skull bashed in but the fact that you're here today tells houses that your soul is an eternal thing and that no matter how many difficult human lives you traveled through your soul continues to shine you and to be a part of the flame that is the creator. So yeah I might take you back and bayonet you but I could also take you down the hall to a programming meeting. And they bayonet you take chances with the English. Yes so the message here. Bob Is yes Earthly life is is hard and brutal and filled with pain but your soul is travelling through time. Maternity will be very interested to know how that turns out. I'M GONNA make an appointment for you to and then Zack's how's that. Thank you so much for listening to the Bob and Sheri podcast and the Bob and Sheri odd cast. We would love a few subscribe rate review and share it with a friend on facebook. FACEBOOK twitter instagram. Wherever you go and thank you again for listening?

Effectively Wild Episode 1545: Boogie Mornings

"Fast fast. Hello and welcome to episode fifteen forty five effectively wild a fan graphs baseball podcast brought to you by our Patriot. Supporters I meg rally a fan graphs and I enjoined as always Ben. Limburg of the ring are Ben. How're you doing? Well how are you doing okay? Well people join shortly by. Espn's John Blue Giambi one of the best baseball. Broadcasters out there I think we would both agree and he has been one of the American voices of the K B O for the past few weeks. And we're going to talk to him about that. Whole experience of learning a new league and calling games from thousands of miles away and what his setup is like and what the future of remote broadcasting is but just for a few minutes before we get to bootleg. I felt down a bit of a rabbit hole yesterday. And now I WANNA drag everyone else down with me if you will in Tulsa so we got an email from a listener named Andrew Morris History Professor at Cal poly and. He wanted to alert us to a book that he wrote about ten years ago. The history of baseball in Taiwan. It's called Colonial Project. National game a history of baseball in Taiwan but he also included a little tidbit. That really caught my attention and sent me on a search so he wanted to pass along something. That's on the back of the nineteen seventy five tops. Her Washington baseball card. We haven't talked about her Washington wild but he is of course the designated runner that Oakland Athletics Owner Charlie Finley. The visionary eccentric and mercurial owner decided to employees for the nineteen seventy four and part of the nineteen seventy five season and he was an accomplished trek star and he hadn't played baseball since high school but they stuck him in a uniform and they said Hey. Go run be are designated pinch-runner. There was some resistance to the idea because he had almost no baseball skills. And this guy was really fast of course but still there's more than speed that goes into base running and so people doubted that he could actually be a baseball player as opposed to just a sprinter and the returns were pretty mixed. Which is why. I really was sort of surprised to see that. On the back of this nineteen seventy five tops card so there are three sentences here it says signed by Oakland owner. Charles Finley strictly for pinch running duties last season and in fact. I think this is the only baseball card. That has a player listed at the position. Pinch-runner then the second sentences. Her was personally responsible for winning. Nine Games for the as in nineteen seventy four with speed and then it just moves right along without any citation or anything for that and says he's a holder of world. Indoor records for fifty yard dash five seconds flat and sixty yard dash five point eight seconds but really I kinda got hung up on that middle sentence there because that's a pretty bold claim. Herb was personally responsible for winning. Nine Games for the as in nineteen seventy four with his speed. The is won the World Series. That you're the only one ninety games in the regular season so this card is claiming without any kind of support that her Washington personally won one out of every ten games for the as that. You're which is a pretty bold claim and so I wanted to dig into how the card writer came up with this and what it could possibly be based on because I collect all of the examples that I can find of pre wins above replacement. Instances of people saying that so and so was worth this many wins or this or that was worth that many wins because it seems like before war you could just kind of throw numbers out there in when we did episode fifteen hundred. This is one of the things that I drafted that I like about baseball. Was that people would just come up with these wild estimates of what things were worth because other than the number of team wins. They didn't really have anything to to judge on. So for instance Whitey Herzog went said a good third base coach can win sixteen or Seventeen Games a season for his club. Scher Okay and in our side and the muscle there's a scout on Dawson's a better all round player but Omar Marino saves our ballclub fifty doubles twenty triples a year. That would go by most fielder. Said if you add up the value. Fifty doubles twenty triples. That's way more than any fielder could possibly be worth. And then there's an Ozzie. Smith quote where he said. I may not drive in one hundred runs each year but I can prevent one hundred runs from scoring against us. Which as good as Ozzie Smith was even that unless you're comparing to know shortstop at all that seems like a stretch and Phil Rogers. The writer relayed that An. Al Manager had told him that Yvonne Rodriguez saved the Rangers. One run per game which is a lot of runs over the course of season if he added up and in summer of forty. Nine David Halberstam. Wrote no one valued Phil Rizzuto more than Yankees pitchers off? Who's earned run averages? He was saving a half run or more. Which again if you do the math there. If he's saving all the pitchers on his team have run an IRA that would be an immensely improbably valuable defender. And there's one that fire. Joe Morgan highlighted in two thousand five. Where then twins manager Ron Gardenhire said of Louis Castio? He's worth fifteen wins. Potentially and guard justified. This saying we lost thirty one run games last year with Louise's ability to get on base steel run score runs and play defense. A guy like that can make a difference in at least half those one run games going the other way. That's SORTA shoddy math. Maybe but but that's the genre and I love these quotes because it's just like you could say anything and who could really disprove you because there was no real objective benchmark that you could judge against and there's also a earl weaver one where actually Roger Angell wrote that. He thought that weaver wins ten or a dozen extra games for his club every year on pure cogitate in and I guess we still don't have manager seems like a bit of a stretch. Anyway I have the small but growing collection of these quotes and so now I have added this tops quote about her Washington to my collection so I tried to figure out. Okay what could this be based on it? And I figured we'll nine wins. Maybe that's like the Ron Gardenhire. Least Castio thing. Maybe it's like. He scored nine game winning runs during the season. And so they're just taking a little bit of a liberty with the language here so I went through his game log because he only scored twenty nine runs in nineteen seventy four and using the same definition for game winning runs his game winning. Rpi Like the run that puts your team ahead and never relinquished the lead. After that I only counted seven regular season Games in seventy four when Washington scored the winning run and he played in five postseason games. But he didn't steal any bases there and Certainly didn't win any games single so I couldn't figure out unless I've miscounted. Report tops miscounted how they ended up with seven and I kept looking and I figured okay. Maybe someone else made this claim and tops just borrowed it. And so that's what I found in December twenty seventh nineteen seventy-four article from a wire service that was written by the Pulitzer Prize winning sports. Shredder IRA Berkow. It says Washington stole twenty nine basis last season and was thrown out thirteen times. He was picked off twice in the regular season and once in the world series manager. Alvin dark who has endured Finley fault? Roll says Washington by his count. One nine games for the as by stealing a base as a pinch runner which eventually led to the lead or winning run so I can only assume that this anonymous tops card writer was getting prepared for the upcoming season and trying to find something to write for the set and saw this Alvin dark quote that said that Washington one nine games for the as by stealing basis of pinch-runner which eventually went to the leader winning run and he just put it down there without saying manager. Alvin dark said it just sort of matter of factly states that this was the case and he didn't even if I look back at this seven games that counted when he scored the winning run. He didn't even steal a base in most of those runs just sort of happened to be there scoring that run so I don't know how dark was even calculating this whether he was including times when like Washington stole a base and then that somehow help someone else. Scores lead or winning run at. It seems pretty vague. Ni- only found one game when he scored the lead run. That wasn't the winning run so I don't know exactly how he came up with that number then it kept looking and I found a December first nineteen seventy-four. Upi story that says Reggie Jackson figures Washington one nine games outright for the as last season by stealing himself into scoring position manager. Alvin dark believes Washington should be credited with a higher total so evidently the nine game claim came from Reggie Jackson and Alvin Dark. Thought it should be even higher so I don't know whether they actually believe this or whether they were just trying to boost a teammate. Or what you think that. If they actually believed he was that valuable would have released him the following. May He definitely did not win night. Games for the nineteen seventy four as I don't care what you say. Anonymous tops writer. I have two things for this the first of which is given the Positi of his other potentially significant stats. It seems like you have room in the flair tax to just tribute quote. Seems like I should be able to throw it in there. Yeah space is limited but still. Yeah it's quite a clean. Maybe just prevent some support for that right. So there's that part and then as you were taking us down this rabbit hole. I pulled up his game logs for seventy four at baseball reference and sorted by win probability added and I find it very funny that the two games in which he accrued the highest win probability added for the as. We're both losses ONE AGAINST MINNESOTA AND ONE AGAINST CLEVELAND. So you know he is a fun and interesting. Historical oddity for sure but But one that perhaps could have Born a bit more context and explanation on his top Scud I would think so. Yeah in in that. First Article quoted. Where dark makes the claim about him? Winning Nine Games. It says outspoken critic of Washington Third Baseman Sal Bando. This was one of his teammates. Some of his teammates were quite critical of this idea. So Sal Bando said Yeah but how many Games did he lose? Which is a fair point. Sal Bando so it says dope believes that Washington was just taking up the space as twenty fifth man that a combination hitter field runner should have had and Washington. Of course never batted. He never feel that he never pitched or anything he really was just a designated pinch-runner and it's not even just that he was limited player but that he wasn't even that great doing the thing that he was here to do because like he stole twenty nine basis that year and he was actually sixteen times which is not really a great ratio. If your job he had one job and it was to still faces and not get caught and T- wasn't that great at that job so if you will get fan graphs stats for that season Fan. Grass has him at negative point. Four wins above replacement. Not Winning nine games for the as but maybe like losing them half a came and it actually has as negative in base running runs effec- s because he got caught so often and in terms of win probability added it has some just barely positive point one two so the stats that we have now said that he was essentially just kind of a wash. Which I think is what I enjoy so much about this particular quote compared to the ones in this genre that I said it earlier like Yeah Phil. Rizzuto might not have been taking half a runoff. Everyone's Era Ozzie. Smith may not have been saving one hundred runs in a van. Rodriguez may not have been saving run per game but all those guys were good. They were saving sub runs various. It's not really clear that her Washington was helping at all. It's not like he was getting on base. Every time he stole a base someone else was getting on and then someone else was driving him in and if he hadn't been there. Another runner sometimes would escort instead. You have to take into account. The pinch runner replacement level. How many hypothetically for someone like this. What is the platonic ideal of their stolen base? Success rate that we would except for us to look at this and say oh. This is an interesting way of sort of who constructing your Austria and trying to account for some very specific game states. Because I think realistically even a very good base runner and good base. Running isn't just pure straight line speed right. It's a combination of that plus instincts around sort of acumen so one hundred percent effectiveness is probably not realistic. But I think the number has to be fairly high before you sit there and say this is a good use of a roster spot. Probably what north of Avenue? Certainly north of ninety percent. Maybe as high as ninety five. Yeah I would say I was GONNA say ninety. Yeah and this is a conversation that we had about Billy Hamilton. Eight Times because he was not contributing in many other ways in Hamilton. At least was a great center fielder fight. He just didn't pace but when he first came up there was some talk about. Well how could you deploy him remember? Sam wrote an article about just how valuable he could possibly be if you always used him as a pinch runner and just used him at the most valuable times. And I think Travis Chick wrote something about that later just looking at. If you've maximized his value as runner how valuable would he be? And even then it wasn't really that impressive and it turned out that Billy Hamilton wasn't that great of steelers so which was kind of disappointing on top of just the disappointment that he couldn't really get on base but he wasn't really the other world leash stolen base artists that we thought he would be when he was in the minors. Either yeah I imagine that when rosters the roster rules for twenty twenty are announced and they have this taxi squad and expanded rosters that teams will probably for the most part use those extra spots on pitching because everyone's going to be pretty nervous about pitcher usage this year with the weird schedule and the spring training two point. Oh on what have you but I hope I want there to be one team. At least one team that decides to do a little experimentation around based running as a way to deploy some of those roster spots because I think it would be. This is going to be a goofy weird year anyhow. We may as well learn some stuff and potentially some good gifts. We want good gifts because you know what happens when you get good gifts as you get you get articles or you you at least get articles whether they're August depends on how are executed slow based running in that way. Yeah no I I love the terrance core type roller and so if we get someone in that role that would be great just Probably don't claim that he personally won games for a team season. It seems like a little bit of a stretch. It was a cool car though it was like a special card for him as a special unique player and this was actually covered in the great book by Josh Welker. Cardboard gods and he wrote about this experiment and he wrote about this card. And Josh said as recounted on the back of his nineteen seventy five card Washington entered ninety one games in nineteen seventy four. His first season in the majors he still twenty nine bases and was caught. Sixteen Times. This is not a good ratio and infect would be identified by present day. Baseball number CRUNCHERS US as counter-productive Washington's jittery unpolished improvisations on the base. Paths killing too many possible rallies to justify the occasional extra-base. Us did only until May of the following year adding more stolen bases in one more cut stealing to his all time record. When I was a kid I did not scrutinize the stolen base to cut stealing ratio but was instead mesmerized that these statistics were included at all at the time and throughout the nineteen seventy stolen bases. Were not among the statistics on any other card. I also completely believed the overheated back of the card. Space filling pros created a nameless tops functionary. Who wrote among other things that Washington was personally responsible for winning? Nine Games for the as in nineteen seventy four. My guess is that in a couple of these nine games. Washington merely trotted across the plate in front of a home run by one of the actual piece ball players on the team that in a few more of the nine games he scored after a series of events. Not of his own. Doing that would have led just as easily to escort by the actual baseball player. He replaced and that the Gamer to were his speed actually seemed to provide the winning edge. Where more than canceled out by his inexperience base running gaffes in other games and by his taking the place on the roster of someone who could say feel the ground ball or dump. A pinch hit single into right field once in awhile then again. His mere presence may have inflicted psychological damage on other teams by carrying a guy on their roster who could not hit pitch or field the as were in essence declaring to their opponents that they kick their asses with one hand tied behind their back and guess. That's kind true when they did and they win the world series and I did find a quote somewhere by her Washington where he sort of talked up that psychological advantage and he said the APP. That you're not counting. How many box I induced. Or how many pitchers iit distracted or the times when they caught me because there is a pitch out and I guess that's true but still not nine games worth so. Yeah it does make you appreciate. Just how unlikely it is that you have a player who would be able to. You have speed truly. They're only carrying tool and that they would sort of persist through baseball long enough to get in a position where they could serve this role on a roster. Because it isn't like we said it isn't just speed it's you know it's having good base running instincts and sort of knowing when to go and not to you have to be in a baseball setting long enough to develop those. But if you really can't hit enough that you would just be a pinch runner. The odds that you're going to keep doing that and not go. You know be attract star or go an NFL wide receiver. What have you seen very very low to me? So there are a lot of fast guys and we have baserunners in baseball now. Who are you know better and worse than others? But I think it's it's a stranger profile than even you might appreciate at first blush. I also am realizing that we have at Van Graphs. We have her Washington listed on his player page as D. H. A. Now I'm going to. Ask Sean. Dolan are if it would grow our database. Just terribly to have him have him change that pinch-runner because it's just wrong. It's inaccurate so there you go all right. So we're fact checking forty-five-year-old cards also pages and Sal Bando. I think was one of the players who were critical of her. Washington being even on the world series roster that year and he was vindicated because in game two. Mike Marshall picked off her Washington he just kept stepping off and stepping off and then he got him an. It's like again. That's your one job rank picked off. But you did an important moment. That video is actually online on Youtube. So I will link to it. It's got Vin scully. On the call and you can actually see. Reggie Jackson and out. Dark watching. Washington is picked off but evidently not making a mental adjustment to how much he was worth. Marshall is trying to take advantage of is. Let's say lack of maturity by stepping off the rubber twice now baking throw and the third time rate into Los Angeles Herb Washington a I Reggie Jackson Alvin dark watching intensely off. I knew he was going to try and take that leave. Mike Sue Quick for and he nailed him. He really set him up by stepping off the rubber three times and that was all part of it. Now Watch out. He's got him leaning on his right leg is hung out to dry all the way. Take it from another look. And it's simply experience maturity and luck. There he is dead anyway. It's funny that you could just kind of take players words for it or or managers word for it if they said so and so was worth nine wins. Well who was to say? They weren't because they weren't really basing it on anything and there wasn't really any way to disprove it at least without diving into this rabbit hole yourself and at that time it wasn't even like you could go woke up the game logs reference and even check that easily so. I sympathize but I added this to my cherished collection of people saying that someone was worth a ridiculously inflated number of wins so that's the story of Washington if you were going to prepare your own wall for broadcast of Seo game this card it sounds like would go on it. It probably would. And that makes an excellent segue into our interviews that we will be back in just a moment with poop shabby to talk about. Calling Baseball Games. From fire away is soon wrong. We are joined now by one of our favorite baseball broadcasters. Espn's John Woo Shabby you know him from Sunday. Baseball radio broadcasts Wednesday night baseball telecasts and now depending on where you are crack of dawn or middle of the night K B O Baseball broadcasts on. Espn two on various days of the week. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much I appreciate it guys having me yes. I got my nap in. And I'm I'm ready to pod. Yeah will ask you about your sleep schedule in a moment but take us back a few weeks before you actually impact on this baseball experiment. How familiar were you with the k? P. O? And had you watched? Cape YOKE GAMES BEFORE. I had not watch tapio gains before my experience with Korean. Baseball was from the Oh six and nine than there are the sirens by the way background where they're sitting so close to. Lennox to that the way it worked was six did the forest bracket in for WBZ. We did it remotely. So I had China Chinese Taipei career in Japan. We did six games from like a broom closet Bristol and then no nine. I went to Tokyo in. Did those four teams again and that year career. Japan got to the finals. So I think I had Korea five times so I will tell you that I did get at least a little bit of a sense of the level play. I got a sense for what it was like being hip deep in the names. Yeah and yeah I think I came away with a with a with a couple of thoughts that I guess but I and most basic was. They got some guys could hit so otherwise. I vaguely knew about the backflips. I I had an idea that there were a dozen teams. There are ten but I hadn't watched the league so I mean that's that's my thumbnail sketch on it. I I did not know on about O. I really knew nothing. And how much advance notice did you have you? Were going to be part of this broadcast team. And then how did you go about preparing for calling these games? I'm curious what resources you relied on. Apart from Mike Dot net which I think has saved many of us for making embarrassing errors as we have embarked on cable coverage but beyond that. What resources did you use and what help has ESPN provided to you? And then I'm also curious. How much of an obstacle it is to not be able to go to the clubhouse in talk to the people who are involved in a game action. I found out probably eight to ten days before the the opening of the season. I WANNA say like eight days was would the might might heads up. Officially was my boss called. We're talking about something else and in it. He said Yan came. You'll things probably gonNA happen. And then eventually I had somebody in my House. I guess the we had already started so I guess they were. They were in my head. Season opened may fifth so somebody was in. May Fifth may six. The they were in. My house may six setting it up twelve hours before the broadcast and as far as resources are research people send US stuff. You know the basically directed towards my k b o Dot Net Mike Abo Stats Baseball Prospectus. Had done some things. I clip those articles fan graphs had done some stuff as well got pointed to some different sites as it's gone on. I've connected with the with different people. Sunday Cam obviously on the number of different scouts. Daniel Kim who has over there who covers the league and is also a New York native. V grew up in. Bayside Queens. So He's been really helpful. I would say look the lack of information. Espn's done some stuff. I think it's difficult not being in the clubhouse but I would say the best way I could describe. It is that the. There's no one thing that makes it really challenging. Like if I had to do the royals and the rockies the way I'm doing it right now it would be hard if I was getting the lineups forty minutes before I pitch and I didn't control a single shot for TV and they just showed me the rockies dugout and just what face face face with no font help it'd be challenging if I got no update on if we just came back from commercial end. Hey there's a new pitcher on the mound for. I think that's a pinch hitter. That would be hard but all of that in combination with not knowing the names not knowing a ton of background on the players. Yeah it's it's difficult my setting day. It was funny fifteen minutes to air and I got a call that the game I was going to do have been rained out and we were going to a different game. So she's yeah so you just you gotTa Roll with it and I'm seeing exactly what you're seeing so I don't Have access to really nothing more than anyone else chats so that so that's one of the things so to me. You know I saw as I wanNA teach people about this league as I'm learning about this league I wanNA bring gets on. Who can inform? Add you know color to humanize the players. The stories as best we can but it's also are only baseball window so I wanted to turn it into a little bit of a variety. Show type thing. I've had some fun with pictures over. You know that I made a sort of like a backdrop set where I rotate the pictures in and out so I have a picture of Craig Counsel. Riding his lawnmower in full uniform. I have a picture of Rick Sutcliffe with his shirt off. I have a picture of my little sister when she was two with balloons. I on an audit. I mean. There's been some really good funny ones. But for the most part it's it's baseball centric with Comic Q. On today and I had a great picture of him quarantined with his hair. Just Kinda with you know a dead look. I put that over my shoulder by first broadcast of CAL. Peterson got his freshman year headshot at Stanford. I put that over my shoulder so I I have a wall and I tweeted out or put it on on instagram. So my my vision. Is You know that we'll do these games. And honor the Games and also talk some baseball and have some fun but if it's nine two. Yeah we'RE WE'RE GONNA WANDERING AND GO DIFFERENT PLACES. But that's that's kind of how we've been doing it. It's it's a real challenge. I mean it's really hard. I was going to ask you about the wall because I think that's been one of the sort of fun and unusual parts of everyone adapting to our current environmental seeing their at home. Setups and yours is. I think by far the most aesthetically pleasing that I don't bomb out your your fellow. Espn or by saying that. How often are you swapping stuff out? And how do you decide? What makes the wall I mean? I'm changing every every game that I do not every single picture but yeah I. I'm just trying to trying to turn and look 'cause I'm actually in the room right so like I have my big picture my buddy Tim sheehy who died of AL S. Some founded by charity are are Charity Project Main Street but then. Gosh have this amazing picture of Chris. Singleton from him when he's probably five and I just love the picture and then I just keep rotating different funny picks out. I have a side by side of me in the heat miser one on the Michael Kay show and don the Grech asked me about and Don league-record sent me one of him as a two year old sailor outfits or put that up there I I mean I'm I'm soliciting and and just trying to have fun. There's a great picture of that I got. I got when Aaron Boone got named manager of the Yankees. We worked together a bunch in fact. His first big-league broadcast was with me in the playoffs on the radio and I sent him. I sent him a gift for Christmas. Which was a t shirt from? The can peel substitute teacher sketch and attempt standing in front of the tree and I just I sent him the t shirt and said I hope this doesn't end up on the back. Page of the New York Post in the t shirt says you done messed up a wrong. So He's in that and I just keep keep rotating them out. Just keep trying to have fun at a great pitcher Larry Rothschild as a pitching coach Florida state and I Have some more and Yeah you know we're just we're keeping our fedex. does in business and Yeah we I got. I got a picture of Dan. Schulman with hair. That is incredible and Joe Buck with a mustache and on and on. So I'm I'm confident that it will keep keep getting better. I would say that if I'm willing to print I would say that I'm going to be able to continue to get my hands on good pictures of people inside the game of baseball. So that's what the viewer's seeing as you do the broadcast. So what are you seeing the describe your setup where exactly in the house are you what are you looking at or listening to because you've done remote broadcasting before but this is different from what haven't done much so like. I did that game. I did those games in two thousand and six and then I did a Caribbean League World Series Game in two thousand twelve. And that's kind of been it. As far as my setup. I have an IPAD. That is the camera and then I have an led light and then I have a laptop. That's probably I dunno twelve inches. And that's what the Games on the game is on on a zoom coal basically and then. I have a headset box where I can talk off air to my partner the producer the research guy but again it's it's just a lot and it's horrid when you know the other part of the equation is not having your partner next to you. You wouldn't think about it and you guys appreciate this doing a pod but if you're next to each other all the time the nonverbal is so important in terms of I'm about to finish I'm done I have a little bit more to say. Let me jump in here all that stuff. All those things go out the window in. And so you're you're stepping on each other and that type of thing so you know but on a basic level you know. We do the day Games on Sundays. Hard to see at least for me. It's hard to see. I'm having trouble young. You don't always pick up the baugh doing the and so guessing whether you know is gone or did he get it. Yeah it's IT'S A. It's a challenge. Yeah mega naive to the same thing. We're doing these interviews or Sammer. Whoever's on that day were messaging each other okay? I'll take the next question the next question. I have a follow up here. I don't know if you can do that effectively. While you're also going with the interviews like that's the thing we can do with the interviews but in terms of the play by play in the flow of the broadcast. It still going to happen. A little more organically so that's where it's it's challenging in the interviews. Our producer is doing that he is saying. Kyle's next have Ordos next. Boo HAS ONE MORE BOOZE. GonNa follow that part. We don't step on each other but as it relates to you know we again. It's not our feed so the pictures and they're replaying and replaying and read. They haven't tendency to replay a lot. Are we going to talk about that? Or are we gonNa talk about something else? So it's it's challenging. You can't organizers it. Quite the same way baucus for the day or night of a game. How early are you getting up or just staying awake or you? Are you a vampire night person now or are you taking? Pd's to stay alert. How are you getting through this very strange schedule? I at I think at some point. I was contemplating this the other day. I A starbucks close to make I like coffee just period. That's the and I now. I'm the Guy Walking around with four. Venti ICE coffees unsweetened in a tray. And they're all for me and I put them in my fridge and I have probably five different styles a beans and a bean grinder. So we're drinking a lot of coffee as far as the sleep schedule for the five thirty. The first three games were brutal because I the first game was five thirty followed by the next day's game at four. Am Fall by the next day's game at one. Eight dummy kilner so for the five now that settled in my my schedule. Roughly in Thursday Friday. I'm doing the five thirty. Am and then the Sunday at one am so for the five thirty games. I'm going to bed at nine thirty or ten waking up at two doing prep trying to get a lineup from you know reaching out to people trying to see if I can find a line up a little bit early testing equipment and then I call the game. These games have been long pets in four hour games. So I'm up. You know by two two thirty ish and then I do the game from five thirty eastern time to say eight thirty nine. Am and then. I usually stay up for a couple hours. Get something to eat. And then I'll sleep for like two hours and then get another four that night and then for the the One am game. I'm a by large. I'm doing six six to nine or so six to ten seven to Tan and then doing the game and then going to bed for five six hours something like that and then Sunday night. I'm getting usually you know the type of sleep like somebody. You know chloroform. The like in the movies where they sneak up behind you like a handkerchief or something like that. That's usually what that what that is like where the alarm goes off after twelve hours. My reaction is when I find the person that's making that noise swing on them realize. Yeah that's the alarm so even with the coffee. How hard is it to bring the same energy at unusual times and also I guess without the Electricity of being surrounded by a crowd? And I don't know if you have any crowd sounds or whether you're just hearing the broadcast but how hard does that make it? So here's one for you. I'll tell you this this. This is a funny one. There is some crowd sound. I'm not sure whether the stadium is pumping it in or the Korean broadcast. Feed that we're taking it from his pumping it and we're three weeks in and I don't know who's supplying that so there are some slight crowd. Remember that they still have their cheerleaders there so in home team hits. They're making some racket. They got their DJ and they're MC in their cheers and they play a lot of music. So I probably changes a little bit but yeah it's it's weird and I would say you're not doing a game at seven thirty in the morning. Just not yeah. That's not the the schedule on used to to be nodded. What else. So how do you think about balancing the play by play responsibility helping the folks at home sort of understanding follow the action versus the in game interviews that you guys are doing and I would imagine that you know having experienced broadcasting before doing radio? It's not like this is the first time you've had to juggle but this is a pretty unusual situation. So how are you balancing those things? I think it's hard What's what's I think we have to do it this way. Because I'm I'm assuming that the bulk of our viewership is getting baseball. Fix and I so I. I don't think you can call every game like it's game three of the AFC ass. I just don't we don't have enough information in order to do it that way like we can't totally honor the game in that regard as far as I mean I frankly I had a moment in the game. I did this morning where I mean. There is a new pitcher a new hitter. Shoop pinch runners into defensive changed and I didn't know any of them. Now I've worked hard. Junely has been so magnificent in helping me with pronunciations. And I really you write the names down in front of me. I feel like I have. I've gotten to a place where I I can do fairly well with look the sounds are supposed to be. I think I'm doing okay with that. I'm trying my best but if it's if I can't get my hands on the information you know and I'm calling The other thing is the commercial breaks are short. So it's seventy five seconds and you're back and then I'm in my external voice of welcome back John Shabby and Kyle Peterson. And my internal voices. Is that picture? That looks like a new picture is at a five twenty five minutes backers and a forty five minutes back and I'm looking at the roster and I need him to turn because I can't read Korean and a lot of these teams don't have numbers on the front end so it's hard and then as far as I mean. Look I trust myself in terms of content. Managing interesting is interesting. So liquid jared diamond on today. We gotTa do good conversation. Jared smart you know. So that's what we we did. I you know we have the players over. There have been magnificent about coming on during game like. Lg's playing in Tyler. Wilson did a half with us and it was wonderful. He was smart and interesting and human and justice he was great and then we also had comic you on and he's spotted super likable. And you're trying to use you on Tyler. The case you know. Fill in the blanks. It's it's not so easy so I think it needs to be done this way and look. I understand. We're not GONNA satisfy every I'm sorry I also like the other part is look my way of doing it is. I'm GONNA have fun. I mean I'm not I. I'm not GonNa do it when you know. There's two outs in the night Rhino hitter. But we're going to have some fun and we're doing Korean baseball at five thirty in the morning like Brad infrasonic. So like it's going to. It's going to be a little lighter. Sorry so for the people to get agitated. I think what's hard is that and you touched on it. Yeah I've done interviews and I've done both radio. Mtv where you're you're navigating that and it's a great great help but when the anchor is I players I mean heck the Yankees could play the red sox and if it's happening in front of me I mean I could probably do the games without numbers because I know the shapes and sizes of all the players so well. It's you know we do. These teams so frequently in my knowledge base is is there when you don't when I have to actually read the names. That way of doing it is a tiny bit more challenging. And we're not GONNA do it perfectly or at least I'm not gonNa do it perfectly. That's that's for sure but I you know my my goal remains the same when I'm broadcasting a game. I'm trying to make it smart. I'm trying to make it interesting trying to make it fun. Those are the three notes that I'm trying to hit every time. Mlb K B O. Whatever you know. And there's a need the the amount of ingredients for each that you're striving for is is different each time and look are there times when we've wandered from the play by play during. Kb Oh yeah we have and sometimes it's because the games nine one and by the way we do that as well right in a big league game but other times. It's just hard like I said there are times when I just. I don't have fresh on the field. I I don't I don't know who it is. So it's it's just it's it's not simple every game that you're calling is September with the royals expanded roster. Who are these guys like the way it can feel at times after the first game that I did? I thought we had a good broadcast but the way that it feels at times. My Metaphor is knowing. It's like gum log rolling for three and a half hours and I'm just trying not to fall it. Yeah despite there not being baseball in the states there actually is still a lot to talk about when it comes to MLB. So how are you thinking about devoting time to and they'll be topics because we have this huge question of whether we're going to resume play in how we're GONNA do it? And what the compromises between the players association and the League might look like so you have to leave those topics and as well. I would think we do but I'd also say so might. Might I guess. My feeling is charted. Yeah need articulated clearly. So they haven't presented something economically yet to the players. That specific right. So I'M NOT GONNA get into my personal views on it owners versus players in this format. You know what I may like that generically We're not going to navigate that I and as far as trying to break down the health protocols even I don't think we're even there yet so disordered you know I'm more interested in com- accused playing catch with a net is if it starts to get closer then. I want to ask him okay. What are some of the specific things that you're worried about right and that and that will get there so you know again? I I think that today we use it. As with jared. We talked about his books. Swing kings which is great but we also talked about just kind of the state of the game and some of the things you like about K B o like the way I break it down again. My opinion but where. Mlb is right now. I think it's going in a bad direction. I mean I I. I have a hard time imagining that. Even the Best Baseball Fan and I love it as much still now as I did when I was seven. But there's a train coming. I mean in terms of what's happening I put it is this. There are three things going on at the same time. That are bad and you can't have all three at the same time. You can't have the games getting longer. The amount of time between pitches getting longer and the amount of time between bowl in play getting long. You cannot have three if the ball's not being in play and the pace is slow and you're guaranteed to have it happen in a two and a half hour window. I think that would be tolerable. Not Advocating for two of the three in that spot. Okay I think that the sport would be okay but you can't have all three. They've got to address it preferably the balls in play more. It's happening faster and it doesn't take as long as it would be good. I think for the long term health of the sport for all three to be improved in some way so the yeah I just look I. I'm you know the Ombudsman to some extent right. I mean I I sit there and on the guy that determines what we're GONNA do and overseas it and so I I feel like look both of you guys I I am. We know each other. And but I'll I'll pay you both the complement of you guys both know what interesting is it's it's what your strength is and if you were being totally honest with yourselves like what do you think you're good at. You could sit there and and tell me all day that the different skill sets that you think you bring to the table but if you if you really take a deep breath and meditate band mag both of you both of you and you sit there and say what do you think you're good at both of you. Believe and in my opinion are very good at understanding. What is interesting? Well I think I am too like and I made that made stating that explicitly makes you sound like a jackass but I feel like I know what's interesting so I'm Gonna I'm GonNa try and continue down that path or at least I know what's interesting. Is it relates. The baseball not particularly interested in crab doped beyond was there consideration of having sort of a sideline person who is in Korea. Maybe not physically in the ballpark but sort of the scene. Who's been covering the League for years? And maybe could help out with this. Is this guy's backstory or is that just kind of too much to juggle on a technical level magazine? Okay if we are we allowed to turn it into two against one so now it's GonNa be me and you against Ben. This is where I say then I just explained to you. It's like log roll and I feel like you basically said to me. Yeah that's Great Book Juggling Chain. So my answer would be. I don't know whether they consider that. But but like another thing in the mix I mean look. We have guests. So that's that would be my. That would be my share my aunt. Yeah but like if they want to chainsaws journal chainsaws whatever. Yeah you talked about some of the trends in LB. That are maybe not spectator friendly. So has there been anything about K. Baseball and the style of play there that you have found refreshing or or different or front will what I like it. So here's here's what I would say I like is it's not like Japan where they're doing they don't do as much small ball is Japan They certainly are more three. Run homer centric. I'm down with that. So they're not trying to give away out but the ball is in play more right. The problem is the stuff isn't good enough in the defense isn't good enough so it's really hard. When the average fastballs eighty eight miles an hour they're good hitters and stuff gets hit and then the defense gets banged around but I liked the idea that they're trying. They're not trying to play small ball but it doesn't come with the cost of the strike out of the ball not being play. That's what I like about it Kinda related to that one of the things that Dan Kurtz such when we interviewed him was that he hoped American audiences would appreciate the for what it is rather than constantly comparing it to. Mlb At the same time. Mlb is the baseball context that most US fans have in are familiar with so. When do you find yourself utilizing? Mlb COM versus. Trying to watch K B O. Free of how it's run-scoring environment compares to the majors here. Or How pitchers might attack hitters or the quality of the defense. So yeah I mean there are a couple of things. One is yeah. Give the the cooperative Slash LINES FROM LAST YEAR. And we talk about how they deduce the baseball last year. It seems like it's going back in a in a different direction. I mean I think those are all things just to inform the viewer from fourteen to eighteen. It had a similar vibe. In terms of it was Homerun Palooza. Now People WanNa do the what level does it reflect and the thing if you really if you really break it down. I don't think he can do it that way. I think you take the skill sets each like for me guys can hit. I mean I think the the three four guy three four five guys are two three four five guys in both the lineups there are i. I would say every team has three guys that are capable of hitting on a big league team is what I would say and and so they can hit I would put I would put the offense at triple AAA ish. The stuff of the pitchers is not what you're used to. You know despond. Yay pitched for the whiz. Today and ninety three ninety four was like whoa right not used to seeing that and then. I think that if there's one part that's been disappointing it's been the defense on some pretty basic plays. I would say that that part has been that a little bit of a bummer. But you know look I still you. Don't we did the today? And there's a kid on the WHIZ BECO- com who is now at three weeks. I WanNa see him hit man. He's twenty years alarms. The first overall pick in a draft a couple years ago. He's twenty years old. He's got a thousand plate appearances in the K B. O. They got some. I mean there guys that can swing in there that are fun to watch hit Yuji Young. Who's The catcher for? The dyno's is a really good player. We've had Josh Lindblom on a number of times. He smart. He's funny he's likable. And he gives us great context on what's happening in the league so but back to what you ask. Yeah look you're GONNA YOU'RE GONNA COMP two major league baseball it's always gonNA come back to that but you're just trying to explain to people. Okay so what are you what you really watching here and we. We do our best but look it. It's baseball but still it's still cool and yeah when there are really good players. I mean like I said today. I was bummed out that we didn't get a chance to watch BECO- contemplate so that's you know that's that's part of what you're looking for. You're looking to to see who the players are. And I guess anytime you call any baseball game. You're trying to make it accessible to casual viewers but also not trying to turn off people who were watching baseball the time they don't need the basics explained to them every day. And so now that you've been at this for a few weeks and you've earned a lot about the league and people who've been tuning in regularly have learned a lot about the league. Where do you sort of set that level? As far as here's how much of the context you need to set up every time I think it just kind of feel I mean you. You just yeah. It's just it's feel. And how does the game go and I think that? Yeah it really depends. We've we've had weird stuff we've had you don't blowouts and walk offs and it's it's just it's felt extreme. Bullpens are a fiasco from at least. That's what they've demonstrated so far. So yeah it's it's just feel it's hard. It's hard for me to explain. I don't sweat that you know what I mean like but I still look. I will sit here. I'll talk about you. Know I mean Ben you would I got connected in our nerdiness you know from back your days at BP and obviously we both went to Regis speaking of nerdiness but but as far as you know when you're putting stuff in the context it's it's just it's important where I will doing a big league game. Say Hey so the two stats to correlate most with run-scoring or on base and slugging. And here's the slash line in the majors this year. So so if I'm referencing a guys there'll be a guy slug. Yeah I will still every few games say. Here's what the League averages. This year in these categories it. Just feel I I. I wish I could say that. I have a script on it but I think there's just a field to do that and yet you try your best to use the good word to make it accessible. You're trying while you've outlined a number of the challenges and I think inspite of those. You guys have done a really great job of putting this broadcast together. What do you think you've gotten better since you started doing? These K B O broadcasts. How the Log Rolling? Maybe gotten a little easier to manage. Well here's what I would say is that I think that you get you. Get the teams. I mean Don L. G. Now I think four times you know so. You really start to get a sense for Roberto Ramos. Although Tyler Wilson gives permission com Bob now but so You just start to get a sense for some of these guys get opinions on different players. A dyno's leadoff guy. Zeman will park is a nice player. I think that it's it's it's that automatic type of recognition of a player that that I think just gets helpful and it it it makes it a little bit more smooth ultimately. I think that really what's taking places. I I hope I really hope that these broadcasts can you to get better. I think just as we get more and more familiar with the players as guys you know it becomes a little easier for us to recognize the monitor monitors and not information but I think what it really is going to end up doing is probably probably if there's you know there's a decent chance that we're going to be calling games like this in some form some of the time for Major League Baseball this year. I don't think there's any question that there's whether it's for my house or from a studio that is not out of the question and I would say probably even likely I think that that that version log rolling is probably GonNa be easier because I have done this. And when you're calling game in person. Roughly what percentage of the time are you actually looking at the field versus the video monitor? And what do you most miss being able to see? Just pay? Actually being in the ballpark. Okay I get asked this question a lot I will. I will answer the question and it's anecdotal and you know I'm the one that subjectively gets to say they're actor is i. Guess some objective answer I will. It's different for radio and TV. But I'm GonNa do something that I've never done before. Give me a percentage guests that you have for radio and for TV each young so your guess would be. I look at the field. What percent of the time? And the Monitor. What percent of the time in radio in the field? What presented a time and the Monitor? What percent of the time on TV? Gosh well yes. That's right here. I told his to control this experience broadcast. That's right and now you guys are thinking now. Now you're you're basically you're broadcast green baseball. You gotta you gotTa answer on the Air Boob Chambi. I love talking third person when Shami is broadcasting. A game on the radio mega when boot. John is broadcasting a game on the radio. What do you suspect is the amount of time? He's looking at the field and the amount of time he's looking at the monitor when he's looked when he's broadcasting game on the radio and I'll give you a little extra time and re ask the question. Good mechanical device. What percentage of the time when bookshop is doing TV game? Do you think he's looking at the field? And what percentage of the time do you think he's looking at the Monitor? Got Guesses if you need more time to think our guess so I. I'm going to guess that on the radio it's sixty percent field forty percent monitor and that it's flipped for TV. 'cause you have to worry about graphics and bumpers in and out and that kind of stuff is that a terrible guess? No that's pretty close to say I don't get over whether her good. It's about as good as my guess would have been. Which does that mean that my guess would have been good but yeah. I was guessing that Maybe sixty forty or something. Tv for for field and monitor. Just because you're you're seeing what the viewer's seeing and you can look down at night Tennessee. The pitch and then I would think that on. You might want to look more around the ballpark. Just because you're trying to set the scene and people are not seeing exactly what you did. She seeing on. The Monitor aren't so my answer is on radio. I'm looking at the field. Probably eighty percent of the time of the modern about twenty percent of the time I just because and there are other guys that will work off of a Centerfield Cameron work off the Monitor. My problem is as long as I have a decent sight line. I feel good about pitches just off the field like I. Just I'm I'm basically find out what guys have. I know how hard they throw. I can look at the radar gun calling pitches is usually not a problem taking DC in Pittsburgh out of it when we're broadcasting from the Empire State Building and then you're looking at the monitor to fill in stuff so it's about eighty twenty TV. I would say it's probably fifty fifty but it's really more it's this it's it's so the play happens and I'm probably in the Monitor for the Pitch Close. Like seventy five percent of the time as soon as the pitches delivered on the field so it's monitored a field and then the play ends and then it's probably back to monitor so I would say it's it's it's closer to two fifty fifty so you guys were. Yeah you were. I mean in the range and the range is pretty solid. Meg feel okay. Not embarrassed no you define you see how awful it would be to work with me. I mean here delight bully down. Sell yourself shows. I am curious. You know one of the things obviously South Korea's in a position to play baseball right now where the United States is not. And you guys have spent time on your broadcast boasts amongst yourselves in terms of the folks who you've talked to sort of laying out for American audiences. The other societal factors that needed to be placed before play could resume and I'm curious how you thought about balancing that obviously in some ways that probably strikes a lot of people as a fairly obvious question and topic that needs discussion but it is not without some political overtones in the states. So have you thought about that Maybe not quite as much as I should but I just do it. Yeah I do I trust my judgment and just and just do it. I mean I look I live in New York City or so word at the epicenter of it so I I take this as very real you know in very scary and was really scary for a stretch. I have parents Who are in their seventies. So I mean I don't want to get into that too much but I also for the people that are asking. Why is Korea able to do it? They did a better job of mitigation and widespread testing. And Look. You're right. There's a political component regardless. But I will say that. It seems pretty obvious you know. The other distinction is testing in the K B. O. They make them take their temperature and as long as they're a symptomatic they don't test him they're symptomatic then they will test them. But I think that when you have three times as many players testing symptomatically is is kind of boss. Plus you have these. You know support staff that will clearly be cut down but I think look. I understand the implications but I've said it once or twice. Yeah so if you're going to do that it does need. You do need to make sure that it's right. You can't have the DIAMONDBACKS BACKUP. Second baseman getting access to test six times a week when somebody in the middle of Michigan who works in a hospital was exposed to someone quarantine themselves and as as symptomatic now and can't get a task. You know what I mean like you. You can't have that and I'm not looking to get into a greater discussion so i. I don't know that I've actually answered your question to be honest. I I just I. I think that they're they're little things. That seem obvious that that might be a little aditorial. But we're staying away from that. I'm not interested in stirring people up in in that regard. I want people to be safe. I want the sport to be safer one. Everybody be healthy. You know if you were one of the many baseball broadcasters who don't have any live action to call right now what would you be doing to stay sharp to stay sharp? Yeah just to kind of keep your skills honed. So that if baseball comes back you're you're rusty. Yeah that's a great question. I don't think I would do anything I mean. I think I would just end up being rusty's what it ended up being stinky and where you really noticed it on the radio. It's it's I love that I get to do both people ask me which one you like. Better they access different skills right so that I love being able to paint the picture and doing it being descriptive but being efficient with it. And there's a timing component that is so challenging but so fulfilling when you're able to really paint the picture and use the sounds in the ballpark so there's that but your timing can get really screwed up and then on TV. Because I don't have to describe stuff. I can impact the content more. I've worked with a great producer. Who knows my you know? Analytics Bent Heck had. It happened the other day on the cable broadcast Eduardo. When we were talking late in the game and remember team was down around or whether they were even and was a guy on second and nobody out in the bunted and so you know I made the point that you know. This is an anti analytics. By the way I brought up. My you know my run expectation table because really. Who doesn't have ron expectation table laptop desktop computer and you know just went through the percentages and. I love doing stuff like that. I still love doing stuff like that telling people look. Here's the the basic idea? This is how often you're expected to score this percent of the time with a man at third one out and this percent of the time with mad at second and nobody out so yeah there you go t think the experience of relying on remote broadcasts during the pandemic will make remote broadcasting just as a whole more common even after it's safe to call games in person and if it did what would you miss about being on site really did it You'd have to keep changing up the wall. That's a big ask keeping it light but on a real on a real note. Yes my thought is that I think that that. There's an element of this. How fat I mean this year. Certainly but in the next ten years. Yeah we're seeing the future and it bums me out. I Love Broadcasting Games. I like connecting with people. I like seeing Chris singleton making him laugh. I like seeing Justin wear. He's a radio producer when I do a TV game. I like making you know Andre Bruce. And AMY OUR CAMERA GUYS. Greg Logan all making them laugh jeff defined Jimmy Plateau our producer director for the longest time. You know Rick Sutcliffe and Dave Ross. This year it's going to be chipper Jones. I you know being next to them. Yeah I like connecting with people like telling stories. I think I'm good at connecting with people engaging in conversation getting good stuff out them and I just. I liked the human contact of the players. The coaches the. Gm's the managers the other broadcasters. I really love it I just do. I love getting a chance to see. I love you know going to the Yankees as game. Wildcard game a couple years ago when I'm on the field and I'm talking with Brian Cashman. And Billy being comes up and interrupts shaking caches hand and says so what's up cash out analytics shit at US tonight or what and and then and then waiting just to find billion say hey is it. Okay if I use that. And he'd says yeah and but I love that. I love that you know that finding that stuff is just and I love you know the analytical side getting good information and then after I mean look the Chipper Jones. Looking up at me in the booth starts with my curiosity and finding something on a fan grasp page and bringing it to him and then putting a coin in the machine and so that that interaction. I just I love it. I love seeing you guys laughing and met you know the next time I see guys. I'll start making fun of you. For how much of an idiot. I wasn't as podcast about asking you that dumb question and whatever but I loved that part of it I know it Corny but I like all of it. I mean. I'll miss watching baseball in person as well. Yeah but the connections with the people and the players and the stuff that I'm able to to get learn and in the process then translate to the fans is so much fun. It's so fun I mean you guys can relate on that. Kanye you just do it in a in a different way you do it the podcast or through the written word and I get to do it on the radio and on TV. Do you think that fans will continue to follow the K B O if in one? Mlb Action Resumes. I don't know the answer to that. I would have to think at least a little bit. I mean they asked the amount of attention that it's getting is crazy. I mean like it again. You know. It's the atmosphere that we're in but once it was announced that we were doing the game and I was doing the game. I mean for two days. My phone just exploded. Hey let's talk baseball. Let's talk about and I was like. Can we wait till I yeah? I hope it'll be big for international baseball. I mean obviously when he comes back will all be thrilled about that but this exposure and whether it's KP our c. p. p. l. just having it kind of be our sole source of baseball right now at imagine that produces some fun feelings rate if if you've gotten used to the players and the teams and you know the League a little bit now than naturally. I think you'd hopefully be a little bit interesting. I mean I absolutely will be like this is something that I will. I will personally stay connected. I mean I'm not saying I'm going to be locked in on it every day but it will be viewed from this point if they started. Mlb Tomorrow I would still have a curiosity and a connection Took Abo going forward. No DOUBT ALL RIGHT. So lastly may is. Ls awareness month. And as you mentioned you are very active with an organization called Project Main Street that helps people with ls deal with the financial burdens associated. With that season I know that your annual fundraising gala. That was scheduled for next week. Had to be canceled along with everything else. That's getting canceled. But how can people find out more and help out? I appreciate that. Yeah my buddy Tim sheehy. We grew up together in Rhode Islanders. One St on rolls around. It's called mainstreet so all the addresses for the most by may have changed it. It's mainstream. Is that an. Tim Thought of the idea that he's he's over my shoulder on the On the wall. That's one picture that will that'll stay the whole time. But yeah you can go to project street dot org its main. And then it's s t the abbreviation for streets project MAINSTREET DOT ORG. You could donate its tax. Deductible were five Oh one C. Three hundred percent of the money goes to people living with S and so ultimately in today's atmosphere you know the the economic impact of of covid nineteen yet. It's made it more challenging for people that have Ahah last to get care to afford care and so we raise money and give grants to help pay. Insurance will even buy your groceries by hospital bed a wheelchair and I gaze machine that type of stuff so I'm still trying to figure out I I have. I collected a number of things for an auction. In fact I have a a Peter Alonso. Polar bear cartoon the Kev Rochet did. That's over my shoulder on the wall that he signed and I'm going to auction it off but I have some other things and I'm not sure whether they do it in drips and drabs or I'm not sure but I have a bunch of stuff that I'm going to auction off but like I said anybody I mean ten dollars helps sits and it will go to a person that has the disease so I appreciate you Asking me about that in anybody. That wants to help I thank you very much. Yeah we will link to of those pages on our show page and in our facebook group and you can also find boob on twitter at Buksh Ambi- and of course you can hear him usually on. Espn two Colin Cape. Yoke Games and I guess we will let you rest your voice and rest your brain and replenish your coffee stockpile. You gotTA game coming up as always. Thanks guys thanks. So much for having me was great. I really enjoyed it all right. I WanNa share with you something. That Patriot supporter. Brian just emailed into us as we were putting the finishing touches on this episode. He is rereading the great book by John. Lords of the realm which we have mentioned and recommended many times on this show. It's about the history of labor relations and baseball and was published just before the strike in nineteen ninety four. I wrote a piece about its twenty fifth anniversary for the ringer last year anyway. Brian uncovered a passage that I had forgotten this toward the end of the book. And it's very relevant today. It says Michael Jordan was no less self-centered and no more virtuous than any baseball player and his income was considerably higher yet the NBA had marketed him. Beautifully as a genial superman in designer sneakers baseball owners obsessed with denouncing. The overpaid players. Never did that as agent. Scott Boris once put it. If the players were a can of Campbell's soup the owners would roll it down the aisle step on it kick it call it overrated and overpriced and then stick it on a shelf and try to sell it. This is kind of akin to what the owners are doing now for one but also it just goes to show that Scott Boris's way with words and appetite for analogies extends so twenty five to thirty years back at least the owners never change and neither does Scott Boris. That'll do it for today and for this week. Thanks for listening. You can't support the podcast on Patriot by going Patriot. Dot Com slash effectively. Wild Boeing. Five listeners have already signed up and pledge some small up the amount to help keep the podcast going and get themselves access to some perks. Brian Shores Dan. Patrick Morgan meet Gilman and Tom. Moham- thanks. While of you you can join our facebook group at facebook dot com slash groups slash. Beck the wild you can rate review and subscribe to effectively wild on itunes and other podcast platforms. Keep your questions and comments for me. Negative SAM coming via email at podcast. Bankrupts DOT COM or Patriot missile system. If you are a supporter thanks to Higgins for his editing assistance. If you're looking for some reading material you can pick up the paperback of my book. The key machine. How baseball's new nonconformists are using data better players paperback edition and the kindle edition including afterward. We hope you have a nice long weekend will be back to talk to you next week. The dances easy as well. Good must be easy baby to say this week thing. Viewed as easy as rolling Nov along Must be crazy but you make me think it's true.

Yeah, that would be Shining Rock Country Club in beautiful North you play golf club not well heavy snow is the host of TV in the middle every single day noon to 3 on the one and only workout even had Ross limbo filled in from the other day. You know, what's that all about? How did you get Rush Limbaugh a feeling for you? Push a button? Yes, something like that. You know, my first job in radio was engineering Yankee games. I worked at a little thousand watt radio station, and it was they carry the Yankees and I would sit there and wait for the you know, if they only count Phil Rizzuto top of the third anywhere to take a break and come right back for winning number for and I'd go suck I get all nervous. Which button do I turn, you know, throw some spots in there and Engineering the Yankee games. That was my first gig, you know, you mentioned that Adams because my six year old owners here and we've been watching a lot of baseball and what's the one thing we know about baseball on I love that kid wage to teach em young in once you get it in there. It never leaves that. Oh, yeah, that is really really true VB loans a lot about a lot of things but one thing I've noticed is that you are just as much of a baseball fan as anybody else. That I've ever known. I mean you you you've obviously been paying attention for a long time. Well, even my my six year old knows this now. I mean, why do we root for the Rays because the Astros are cheaters and because the Yankees by everything so you course you gotta root for the raise if the Sox aren't in there, right? That's true. And I am suffering the tortures of the Damned where the Yankee tattoo on my left ass cheek, you know, and that that I had to had to have done on neck in because that was a worse as a worst thing I ever did it was the worst bet I ever made, you know, the guy tormenting me live raid live TV Yankees are going to win the Braves were up two games to none. They won the first game like 8 to 1. This is 96. They won the second game like 9 to 3 months and the guy calls up and says, yeah who's going to win the World Series I said, you know, what if they do tattoo their logo on my button and four games later. I'm at a tattoo parlor back then VB you had to do it in a sure cuz they weren't legal in Massachusetts tattooed. You know, for some reason, you know, it was to nothing in that series, but Eddie Mathews wasn't walking through that door wasn't coming through that door for the briefing. That's right. Ken aspermont. He was nowhere to be found like aspirin and he has a Yankee statue on it right when that was again. That's awful. But sometimes you know, I can get a lot of action in bars when I make Bets with people, you know, it's it's weird in the in the chicks love it. They love it. Especially that wasn't done tongue-in-cheek. As you know, what time the New York girls are made a lot of nasty cracks about it the girl the Yankees when I lived in New York this brief six months. I worked at wnew I I almost picked up a couple Yankee girl fans. Just having that on my but it saved me a lot of effort into that line. Please tell me that line didn't work girls want to come on down. So how's it going over at the radio station? What's going on over there? I tell me cuz I'm not I'm out of touch with real radio in the Boston Market cuz I'm working in Worcester now at a rock station. This Adams and you've been here before yourself. I'm sure but I took last week off. We have a you know, we had to take some furlough weeks this year. And so I have some backed up vacations. I'm going to use it by the end of the year. So I look at my calendar I go. Okay, there's no presidential debate next week meaning last week, right and I'll take that one off so I don't miss anything. I don't like Lloyd Bridges in airplanes. Every single day loves you bring up Lloyd Bridges, you know, I used to watch his original TV show which was called Sea Hunt Sea Hunt was off a scuba diver, you know, and I used to watch it while Mike Nelson. That was that's right. Mike Nelson blue scuba divers, see how we stack called, you know, we used to say to other guys were, you know, ranked out your friends you drag if you give a I could wreck you so low I could read you out so bad you'd be so low you have to play Sea Hunt in my spit. So we used to tell The Neighbourhood kids before they would pull out the gun club. Issue, we've lost baseball player, you know you I've seen your tweets, you know, the baseball players that have died in the last I'm going to save six or eight weeks. That's crazy. I mean Joe Morgan, obviously the latest but Bob Gibson you would know better than I had Adams. You're a little bit older and I know you've been doing the Jim lonborg if you had one more days, yes, but if you've got one game with one team any point in the history of baseball and you get one picture to start again to finish it. It's either Gibbs Colfax right else in that discussion. Well, it depends if the other team has a good left-handed lineup, you know, they couldn't hit either of those guys. But Gibson listen to this I did a little research on this Vivi this page astounding 1968. We know as the year of the pitcher a lot of pictures had good years, but Bob Gibson listen to this okay with a 1.12 earned run average he's dead. To a nine. How did you lose nine games? Thank you. This I've been asking this question for a while. Like that's one of the great anomalies in the history as for it's insane last night to one game know. Well he lost. Well, that's right. What have you or worse than that? You know one nothing gaze. This is a 22 and 9 picture right now. Here's the killer in April and May he was fine. He took one point nine seven tra for the first two months of the season but his record was three and five now. I don't know how that happened. But he ended up 22 at night. So he's 19 and four months over his left. But here's the thing. He shut out the entire league for the entire month of June for the for the rest of the year June July August September. He had 13 shutouts. He had 28 complete games. This guy was un-freakin'-believable and he could also hit He was also a Gold Glove winner. Ninety nine years in a row. Well hit a homerun in game seven of the sixty-seven which I'm about four miles. My house is from the great Carl Yastrzemski, who was the only guy in the league in sixty-eight to hit over 300, which is another one of those things that'll never happen again in a such a weird thing. What kind of year would you as have had if the mound was what it should have been that's a question. You'll never know. Well the following year we had forty home runs in the year before he won the Triple Crown. So but that 301, you know finish second that Year Danny cater to 90. I mean that's that's a weird one to win the league for batting average three three of Gibson's is lost that year were as a result of his team being shut out. Right? Exactly. Well, you know the guy through 13 shutouts. I mean that should be 13 and oh it was it was just an unbelievable season and he was trying to remember Adams recently. Was it like seven or eight years ago King Felix won the side young and people were like the guys got a losing record, but he dead Blues and one or two to nothing. I mean the guy was dama. Yeah, but he wouldn't Bob Gibson. I was no one's Bob Gibson nobody. So Bob Gibson quote that you know, everyone's you always learn more about these guys when they pass away but Gibson's quote and they asked him about throwing inside. Yeah, and he said I never had to throw inside twice cuz they got the message like sure confidence in the braggadocio sickness of that sure. It's just beautiful and wellcome seen his follow-through. I wouldn't get back in there as confident the second time. No. No, he was he attacked the The Hitter with the ball really basically without hitting him. He was so scary. I know here's the thing the guy like him passes away. We forget the Tom Seaver died a few weeks before that. Tom Seaver was one of the one of the greatest pitchers of all time that's two-in-one. And then you say well, what about Al Kaline? Maybe the mystery tiger the best Tyger River except for maybe Ty Cobb these guys this like legendary names who today can compete come compare all these guys are dead, you know, and then of course Lou Brock you want to talk about Bob Gibson and the 60 Lou Brock won the 64 World Series for the Cardinals with Bob Gibson sixty-seven sixty-eight. They should have one if it wasn't for that big fat. Turd Mickey lolich took believable those guys. You don't need to drag Mickey Lowell. It's through the month. You know, what at this week we lose Whitey Ford and Joe Morgan. I spend a lot of time with Joe Morgan in the 07 world series broadcast booth in Denver and he was pretty good guy, but I was shocked at how little he was. He was like Jason wolf. It's a reference for five people. Okay? Well, you know what? He's got to get it off his chest. Let him do it Adams. That was my first, you know, I'm I was the same age as my son that you heard earlier in nineteen seventy-five thousand and that was my first input indoctrination into how Sports could be cruel number one, but I also how there could be teams that I don't care how many hundreds of years go by your job. Going to look at them and go holy smokes and that was the Big Red Machine that team was on stacked believably dominant. Yeah, they were stacked. They had they had like five Hall of Famers on that team didn't they often? Don't go down the list perception 773 you're like steam is that team was just absolutely nasty. Right and they had good pitching too and had a lot of guys coming out of the bullpen lot of left him to Don Gullett and all those guys that seventy-five team was wonderful and they had a personality of their own they were they were stacked wood stars as well. You know was the first year of fredlund Jim, right? So a lot of people Revere that team more than they do some of these pendant winning teams the Red Sox past few years. They just love that for some reason that other that team. It's a sentimentality get hurt in that series or didn't play in that series off the Rookie of the Year and the MVP. No, no Wilfred Lin played Jim Jim Jim Jim Rice had a broken arm Vern ruhle hit him with a fastball in the wrist broke his wrist watch. And he couldn't play in the World Series. And here's the thing. The curse would have been over VB. Yeah. It was a long time earlier if right cuz they call it all the lefties. The Reds were loaded with lefties am crushed left-handers in his rookie year and he couldn't play and it ended up being Cecil Cooper who was like three four twenty one in the series and didn't drive in a run still would have wanted if not for that bastard Ed armbrister of that son-of-a-bitch and that Larry Barnett that umpire I can fully booked in here right as he did. I don't want to say any weather desert is he is he dead Larry Barnett cuz if he walked in here right now and he wasn't dead would kick his ass for what he did with it at Armbruster Bundt. That's we have a cockatoo Loop speaking of dead people. This is something happened to Smitty today. Yeah, you ready for the died know he did not know but I heard him about 5 Seconds. Go ahead know we were talking about Smitty was he he has this song and we're going to play it for you Fred smerlas sends me this thing is that you know, it's an attachment. So I I open it up and it's all you'll hear it. Yeah. Anyway, it's a song It's a song by Bobby Boris Pickett. The original was by him the original so I thought how good would it be to track down Bobby Boris Pickett. I think he's a local guy who play middle of the song so he knows play the the covid-19. My job late last week when my co-workers all began to freak. They started cursing and began to shout back and said quite rudely as the boss threw me out. I need a covid-19 delight to us wear a mask off to do a simple task. Okay, so cool. So, that's me. That's that's the remake of the Bobby Boris Pickett song. So Smitty says to me on the phone, maybe we get them on, you know get him on as he gets out. I'll try to I'll try to track him down. So I didn't know so you wrote an email to I sent an email to is fan club, I guess. No, it said to contact Bobby Pickett. So you put down your name and your phone number or email address and I wrote a nice note here is we're going to do be nice to like come on the podcast. Well, he's dead. If you could get him on that would be hard. Then Mikey says he's dead. I look it up and says he died in 07 to 2007. We're thirteen years too late. Yeah, he you know Bobby Boris in a crypt kicker five. Remember the band now, he's kicking his Crypt from the inside cryptic her sick. He's from Summerville. We didn't know he was dead. But we're trying to reach him on the phone to come on the podcast man. I felt like God. Yeah and we have a special treat for for VB at the end musically at the end of this cuz I know he's a fan of the of the speaking to musically in debt. I'm not going to let this day go by without talking to both of you but I have argued about this in the past. But Eddie Van Halen. Oh, yeah, man, I cannot imagine in nineteen seventy-nine and nineteen eighty. You probably there Adams knowing you you'll attract tourists jump of this stuff, but I met him I met the Homeland some record some record Executives just sitting there and they go here try this one on for size and he puts on the first Van Halen album puts the needle down. He wants to go on what in the holy hell is this and that was how everybody reacted to that. The story is Ted templeman. The guy that produced the ban was in a club one night to see them cuz I told about them and he couldn't believe it when he heard it. He signed them up that night on the spot and they went in and they did that first album. I think it was in one session. They got all the songs done. Well, I think the thing about anything that I noticed was that he he didn't play the guitar. He let his fingers danced the guitar. He would just oh, yeah, this is from beat it, right? Yeah. I went to knock on the door first. His fingers would dance on the Frets, you know, and so quickly. It was like watching a master Irish step dancer. Yeah. I just you know, whatever your faith Van Halen song is whatever but like that that beginning to you really got me. I mean, that just is like whole my God first time you heard that sure. So heavy so loud so smacks you right upside the head and so perfect as just and you know, you can't take a Kinks classic like that and then redo it unless you're going to make it special and that's exactly what yep exactly and they were nice guys. They said it's been a bad Damned year. Let's face. Yeah when I met the band they were really nice guys except for David Lee Roth who was a ding. I mean, he was like a complete moron, but all the rest of those guys were really really nice that's so we've had we've had issue after issue with losing these Legends and it goes back really into 2019. You know, when when did we lose Tom Petty 2017 wage? Think it was I think so and it's just Bing Bang Boom man. And it's it's like it's like when Hendrix and Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all died around the same time all the people that sort of defined the musical culture the finest dispensary. I know VB doesn't care about this stuff going to The Dispensary, but when I when I go to the dispensary, I want to get something special. So I I go to the the one and only resonate on Millbury Street in Worcester now, I told you guys about the Blue Dream amazing. Oh, yeah. They got this new thing out. It's called dream. What's it called? I can't think of the name of it. You have short term memory loss. I really do but it's it's I'm telling you these the one thing about the resonate dispensaries that they have a whole bunch of different kinds of cannabis, they have indicus and they have sativas and they have hybrids and they have everything. What's the name of this? It's called dream something go to their wage. I resonate.com and check it out. And and I just honestly, I can't think of the last name of this one, but it's 24.6% THC. I could write a novel on this stuff. Anyway their menu dream. What's it called? Bensalem good thing we have unlimited time on this, you know, and the radio they give you 60 seconds took a Little Dream know, it's Mama Cass Dream Lover Bobby Darin Dream Weaver. That's scary, right? You can't get me you can't get me Dream Dream Dream On by Aerosmith Fleetwood. Mac dreams. Good ones just all by itself. Anyway back to the Mulberry Street resonate in Worcester. It's a fabulous place a clean. It's new. It's top shelf. Everything is top-shelf. The people are nice. And if you go to I resonate, you'll know the name of that strain before I do dream, baby. No, it's not Dreamed a Dream. They have here is Tangerine Dream know that's what she that's wrong. I'm looking at the website. No, you're not. Go further down dreams dream. It's it's a it's an offshoot of Blue Dream. I don't know I can't I have you tried. My grandma's coffee cake. It's really really good. I am reading today an article from Edison research. I think NPR commissioned this VB that there's a ton of those coffee tastes the shot here on there still in my phone. The top 10 spoken word audio topics. And by the way, this is a new trend to in the year 2014 79% of people listen to the spoken word got their their spoken word on either am or FM radio. And they were only eight percent got their spoken word on podcast. Well six years later, it's 55% listening to am and FM 19% on podcasts. What part of a trend is just moving on up here on this planet Mikey show down. Yeah. So anyway the top 10 spoken word audio topics include news and information. Yep. I did. Yeah, right Phoebe indeed comedy humor. Well, well, yeah fine. Let's another show movies and T Sports no food wellness and self-improvement Cong ly our show. Oh, yeah, you know, I'm working on self-improvement myself. I've just got to get more organized. It says I got I got a list of things here said where is it? Oh, yeah. Hold on self-improvement list seat right at the top. It's nice to get more organized. But are you going to have a podcast VB that we can join in on the other side of things like we can call you some night and bother you wage when he talked to Grandma's about that if I can get that sponsored by the way, it'll be my son and myself instead of if you wanna have a catch. Well, you won't have a talk about these crash and my son loves the game. Do you want me to what which kind of what flavor cake would they like your little ones to have they'll take them all don't worry, but the blueberries always okay, they like two blueberry juice. That's that's good news a couple of political issues. Cuz here's the thing by the way atoms, you know what my son's going trick-or-treating as this year. What even though? We hate him. There is no exception to the rule. He will be trick-or-treating his day. Bruce's Babe Ruth. Yeah, what would it be funny if he came home with nothing, but baby ruths baby ruths in his in his bucket. Write off Dad. I don't think people understand is going to wear number three as you going to be here is we got the outfit already. We've been we've been doing a lot of hitting in the yard cuz we can't go anywhere and does the called shot. He knows a lot about the babies read a bunch of stuff and he's always dad. Throw me one so I can babe. This one grandfather has a ticket stub from that game know that's his father was at it. I was talking to a guy that Adams knows well and Smitty I think you two, but the great Gene lavanchy. Yeah, we're having a little back-and-forth the other day on if you could fire up the DeLorean and go back to see one sporting event at any time. He plays I said it would have to be the called shot wouldn't well, I'd like to see who Adam and Eve what happens. Is that a sporting event. Yeah. Well it was that time who was a wrestling match know she came up when I guess I'd go back to see under the Giants birth. So the only I don't know man. I don't see that could have been bad exactly said they blasting Zone over here. You know, I only have one Babe Ruth Story I Heard it on this old guy. I can't remember his Tommy Henrich. Some old Yankee way back friend. He said that the the used car manager was pissed cuz Babe Ruth showed up Lee Miller Huggins was a Miller Huggins anything. So tell the story The Coach saying you have to talk to the babies. You hear you, sorry, She's coming through the right-field fence 5 minutes wages Gametime staggering through not even than player entrance. You just the quickest entrance. You can come any stumbles across the field get stressed coaches. You can talk to him if you better believe it after this game. I'm going to home. Serious talk with babe goes out goes three four, four two doubles in a monstrous home run. The manager says you still going to talk to him as he goes. Oh, yeah. I want to talk to so here, babe off the elevator. The magic says good game babe. That guy drank just a little he threw his his own freaking piano piano sa organ through his organ in the water. It's in Sudbury and we are in Sudbury doing this podcast just like that. It's that crazy. I've never Babe Ruth stories because I don't think people understand the stones that that guy had but he showed up one day at Fenway. He was a red sock and he said to skip I can't go cuz he was hungover. As you mentioned. He would enjoy a beverage on occasion and I forget the manager, but he said your pictures I don't care and you put them out there. So what did Ruth do he went out there? He walked the guy on four pitches, which he threw purposely high and then he yelled a what an F-bomb or whatever the equivalent job. That was at the UMP to get taught got thrown out. He got thrown out goes over. He smiles and waves at his manager as he walks right by him the guy brings in whoever it was who then sets up his 2757 in a route 27 in a row and it doesn't count as a perfect game over it was it really was technically which is unbelievable the great Babe Ruth everybody. Hey just a couple of ways. Yeah Grandma Adams like a real man this thing either I don't know Mike Adams look like your grandmother exact, Grandma's coffee cake in my mind. I got a gram in my pocket song. There's a big controversy this week about Gal Gadot the woman who plays Wonder Woman. Oh, yeah so still, you know, she's going to be Cleopatra in a new movie. Yeah, and she's getting ripped because people like how long it Israeli play an Egyptian goddess, and nobody know knew of course and Cleopatra wasn't Egyptian. She was Greek whatever right and Richard Richard Burton wasn't either his job. And I bet Adams is on me. It was with me on this ever been better casting a Hollywood than Liz Taylor as Cleopatra. It kind of defines the role, but she kind of got to go back and look fellas. I mean that's that's top-notch. I don't know, you know, I thought Eliot Ness played by what's his name the guy that would cause yeah Kevin Costner, you know, I ran into him at Fenway Park one-time Eliot Ness. Well, no not till you get old Kevin Costner guys that like beverages Eliot Ness. Go ahead. Well, I know I'm walking out of the ballpark with a camper from neck and and I walked by Kevin Costner and I knew I'd never met him and he walked by that little turnstile thing. He says hey Mike I go and walk outside. I go Hey Kevin, I walk out on my life met him and then I see my camera guy talking to him. He comes out he goes. Hey, he watches your show down in Martha's Vineyard. I said, oh shit. That's great. He and Walter Cronkite and the guy who played dead. Luke Skywalker, he watched it on Campbell. Yeah, he was too used to watch it on the satellite and Bill Cosby did to a boy right before you I'd probably leave that one off broadcast. He wants to show when he wage of drugs. It was another topic Levante and I have kicked around, you know, the conspiracy horse that you'd like to have definitively resolved. Yeah, Wisconsin are involved in the Cal Ripken streak or not. Oh Chicago wife. Yeah. Yeah. I don't that's a filthy little story, isn't it? They literally forced to rain out of ripped and wasn't playing cuz allegedly, yeah, the wife was with Kevin Costner. Nobody seems to know whether that was true. Yeah Ripken comes home and catch them because I thought you only Dance With Wolves. Wait a minute. Hey, the witness's right. The wait is finally over for football. It's back and I am poorly. I must say this past week, but you can do better than I did. Betonline.ag is the website if you want some betting action, you know, who screwed me the Kansas City chief that image No, I don't even say this in a commercial but those sons of bitches you that's the worst wherever sons of bitches when you have to pluralize it. It takes all the bite out of it. Doesn't it? That's bad. They screwed me and they screwed a life is across this country, but I'm not giving up. I still have a big piece of pie left from the week before about go after it this week. Yeah, you could wage or anything you want Wednesday Asian Championship Futures can bet on you know, how many hairs are going to grow on the head of your Brenner head to bed online in the under today. It takes advantage. Well, they don't grow after you're dead. You know, that's probably Boris Pickett BetOnline here online Sportsbook experts. All right, Bebe. Listen, this is this is for you. We're going to get this to you this song. Can I ask you a question before you go, please? Yeah. I've got a question for VB to I'm just curious cuz I like to know where people sit currently and we're just a couple of weeks away who wins the wage. Oh did not give you explicit or yeah, I mean, it's just too much if last week didn't show it to you. I don't know what else to change that can be a hundred different twists and turns in the next few weeks. So it's a full thing to call this thing right now. I don't know it's going to be exciting. It's going to be interesting. Everyone's going to be watching, you know, and in the same day in Japan off its erection date same day. It's no it's big over there. All right, here's one political topic for you because I saw this Amy Coney Coney Island getting a job interview today by the Senate. I was thinking the ACA the Affordable Care Act. Is that what it's called the ACA? I've always thought to myself. Isn't it? Kind of weird home? Like saying pre-existing conditions are the same as saying? Oh, yeah, although insurance company. I told them my car and I need you to buy me a new one. Could you just pay for everything, but you didn't have insurance off? I know but I had a pre-existing condition. You know what I mean? Isn't it taking your car after it's been totaled and getting it fixed? TBH I don't know I'm trying to process. Yeah, I don't need you. I was looking for Cricket used. I'm thinking about question one. No repair. Like I don't know if I want them to have my information like when is it going to give you a health insurance after the fact after you said that's going on already? Right? I mean that's how it that's but the big thing of the wrongness of all the gems are like they keep showing pictures of sick kids and saying are you going to strip this from the well, if it's unconstitutional wouldn't you want her to do that? Like the whole point that they have to decide whether you've done this properly or not, or does the end justify it? No matter what kind of be just catastrophic insurance for everybody that way no one goes bankrupt. Nobody dies. They get treatment wage. You can't just say oh guess what I got this thing now and I'm going to go and have it taken care of. Well, that's why can't you do that with car insurance is my point. We're waiting for VBS. I just got an update. My daughter is bringing two more stink bugs out of our house. We've only removed about seven hundred so far. Oh stink bugs onion, you know how long this time of year? And they do you have pine trees near the house. We got all kinds of Travis told these things that we have in the house for god sakes. I'm like what's going on around here? We have some like giant secret doors. Nobody told me about the mantis is a good luck. Tell the praying mantis. They can't pray unless they do social distancing with the other Craig's Manti. Is it Manti plural of that is anyway Matt Mantei nicely done in honor of Bobby Boris Pickett and VB and his great kids. We got Joe and Jerry Jerry trupiano and Joe Castiglione key with this just for you so we can be musically and culturally adroit. I was working in the lab late one night when my eyes beheld and Aries site for my monster from a slab began to rise and suddenly. Holy cow to my surprise figure the murders. He just a monster-man the Monster Mash. It was a graveyard smash the mash it caught on in a Flash. Just imagine they did the Monster Mash my laboratory in the castle East to the master bedroom off of that vampires Feast the ghouls all came from their humble abode to get a job from my electrodes Fishers the mesh the Green Monster Mash the mesh. It was a graveyard smash figure the marriage it caught on in a Flash. They did the dick radatz, Monster Mash song. I I I'm a secluded Wolfman Dracula and his son. Can you believe it the Saudis were having fun? I can't take it anymore. I think I just peed my pants here through Thursday. It's rather than dropping it turkey. Let's try that again. It's better to drop on the dookie. I didn't mean to say it again money is stupid.

Have you looked mass murderer manifesto is like full of memes and like trying to be? The culture too. Like, he was a loser funny. He was trying to impress his friends on eight chair first of all eight really come on dog. I was four Chan like plot nine eleven shit, bro. The world's really changing I feel. I feel. But those people like your life has no meaning people like I get it. But like life change just because I feel like Timothy McVeigh would look that manifesto. It'd be like means Mia these days, you don't have any fucking principles. I mean emojis you be to be fair. Remember, basically, Timothy McVeigh was an edge Lord because he caught his stick from the Turner diaries. So which was a popular novel written yet bowel went to Harvard. Right. And it was that's how they found him. Because the saying is you want to Timothy McVeigh went to Howard Howard Howard. This is true. So you were saying movies now. Manifesto? He's the proper diction on believe the saying is you wanna eat your cake and have it too or have your cake and eat it, too, which will save most people say at the other way around and they linked it to a paper he'd written back in school. Also because he was mailicious to new founded off of that. But I mean, and that was back when there was no internet shit. Yeah. That's the bugs me how people really saving typewritten. Like. Yeah. Listen to back to back to you know, what sad. What they did it save our major league baseball games.

This has no correlation with the Bronx, burn. Does. It really started of Yankee Stadium though. This is not a long con to justify the Bronx that at all today for hypodermic needle. Get your shit together. Don't forget kid. I two thousand kids on Sunday get free cruise. Day off like what's the crows was? Doc Gooden was like stop stop hogging. It. The Yankees top hiring drug addicts they were both on both teams at the same time. We didn't learn for the Mets. Under age is close to that. Cocaine is a social drug.

Use my surroundings like injury you. So I think that's why I didn't think was scary. But then again, like I watched lively videos, so I know real scary got no OSHA that forklift is gonna fall on me. Scary like girl. Leave your phone alone is not worth going on on the tracks changes. The train is. Got hamburger helper on my face. Oh shit. Yo yo shorty guy hit by the treaty. Yoshi OD. Next. Stop your Yoshi wild monitor your may for work though. These have I'm late for work. I can't okay, I'm sorry. My condolences shit like that. But yo my lobotomy job is very important to me. I would pay extra to MTA realistic about what the delays ours. They. We just killed the shit off from my bad. Oh, my bad. Look at look look to the right side. I'm moved to train back. So you can see like look down. Oh, look crazy. Right. Right. It too. That's why. That's crazy. Wow. So yeah. That's what we're doing right now. I don't know we got scooping up or some shit. I mean, I guess job like body grabber buddy with a shovel who who takes the tracks. I guess if you're doing like fucking community services shit. Yup. Hip put on the vests, and, you know, get busy. They got the fucking poll with the nail in it like. Poking a dick this shit like. Ramirez hand over their shit Ramirez. Get that toe. If you get hit by a train, your family should be able to Roger train for life for free for free, actually. Punishment? Yeah. Get triggered and also get triggered by the dam. True. Like the little vigil flowers. Art like, Dan talkable. I like. Come in come in the fan. You come over here. Your father got killed. That's it was crazy right for you. All right. You'll members on the front page of the paper hanging right here. But hey pool to six got killed a oh shit. Got an autograph for he died. That's crazy. Wow. Wow. Mom, doing MTA says the flowers Jennings can show Jason flowers the shape retreat. Mixed up the afterlife. We don't know much about people who die by don't do. They name the station. I guess reward someone for jumping from the train rescue. I feel like if you fall in by accident is if you like are like, yeah. Title joke in the train. I mean, like I feel like you will look at first reading, but how do jump if do jumping from the train as trains even say, oh, you've got China come through. What's the good? What's the timing on that? You got. He got hit by the train, or do you want the trains run you over like, what's less painless? I feel like I think I deal you'd wanna be standing in front of the train and train come at you full speed rather than like get hit by train because if you get hit by you're gonna fly forward, and you not necessarily like you can fly forward hit one of the beams you might fly for land on the third rail or some shit. But like I'm saying this because when the metro north comes to a station not stopping that's just doing like on a good forty if you get hit by that train. You are obliterated thing you turn into pink. Like, I'd rather you want that. I'd rather do that. Outta here. I think the worst is like you're standing there. And they slow the train down enough that the chain Connor issue. Then you just sit in. Just saying. Not even rooster. Like the tree hits. You. Hugh what stupid kill yourself stupid? Let's get the chance. They just put like the while airbag trains facts. Like can't you do that? But like fucking he'll work though. The loud sound is because and fleet so quickly not you back. Like sumo guys. Lately. Even better go the whole subway like a bouncy house. I don't know how we keep them inflated. But you know, now that thing's gonna stab with the when abroad, we don't you? No one's going to deflated. Escalator? Also, another another way these assays, the MTA, we get feral cats, the pull the trains. If you get like Jesus if get like sixty cats fed by the mice gonna build a giant like hamster wheel. That's like takes the entire length of the tunnel. And it's all the rats that you find in the enhancer will generate power would that bond and just casually garbage in their shit for them to eat. You know, what I'm saying you good? I think and I know this is like a tax it out of a rose. If you live on a station with a train starts you should have to start helps out to train push. Poche on the platform. Matt. And you hop in as to no more free you out of boroughs jar. I'm talking to you on it should be people pal. Like you start you start it. And then it goes downhill a little bit on the train, the people. If you go uphill, the people sticking, and you lose your stop isn't dependent on where you live, but depends on gravity like the chain comes to a stop at then you can get on and hope push again, we're not gonna we have Connecticut motion. We're not stopping until they get on. That's right. Okay. Right. This vicious seems very classes in able this. But we'll work. Also make every charter school. Charter school. That does sound expensive. Yeah. Charter school in new just like we're going to do like the Bronx o-. Exa cabinet. We never gave him money. Right. Yeah. Works. I mean.

Episode Fifty-Six: Baseball is BACK!

"They. Nine plus presents the baseball together podcast with your hosts. Blackjack Brad and Kansas City little big, breaking Blue Eyes, and now baseball together baseball family, welcome back to another episode of the baseball together PODCAST I. After a significant, absent and For. I am back. In back and Brad is here with me tonight. This morning whatever? Time. Welcome back. It's great to have you. Thanks man the MON freyre among freer. Super pumped to be here. Actually I M listen baseball family, we have. A boatload to cover in this episode Oh Gosh so much it's it's so good. We thought about maybe doing a timer, but. We're just going to see if we can hang. Okay, so we're going to hit you with current events. There's a lot to discuss. Baseball is starting. A everybody starts reporting on the. I Asked. So excited so happy. I have question for you Brad when you get the chance. Okay, or when I spring it on you. That's a TS here. We go then we're GONNA. Catch me up and then we are going to finish out this segment. Excuse me this episode of the podcast with a topic that we didn't know was as near, and dear to our hearts fill until the time. Toes brought up found out. Okay I'm rusty leads. Forward. Do it Brad Baseball he's beginning. July twenty three or twenty four we'll be opening day and we are going to have a sixty game season now. Obviously, that is significantly reduced for season. They're trying to jam it all into regular, chronological or calendar Timeframe and what are your thoughts first of all on? Not Extending beyond October. I don't I. Don't think they should I. Don't think they should extend beyond October even if they bring everybody to like A. Neutral site for the world series or anything yeah, because they should try to start next season as normal as possible. Yeah because who knows what's going to happen. After next season, we brought up before talking about the expiration of the CBA and Yeah Doomsday scenario. We don't have baseball in twenty twenty two so unacceptable it is so you should try to get as much as a season in next year as possible and I feel like the season is short as it is. You, don't you? Don't WanNa shorten at all as Nice as fun as it would be to have the world series on Thanksgiving. or Christmas as previously proposed right I, don't I? Don't think they should. They should stick to with stick to where their and and at that point you're going to be competing with. NFL. For ratings very likely possibly the NBA, even though I don't think they're even going to be starting until Christmas. It sounds like. But still like. The NFL's a Juggernaut. That's tough. That is really tough to compete with. Especially you get into Octobber. November. Two really are November. Especially December things really heat up. Yeah, that's tough to compete with on ratings and you don't WanNa go there. As baseball so. No, I think I think they're doing it the right way. October and in October. Do it. Look I agree with you. I had different reasons, but they don't matter anymore. Because artfully articulated yours. No give me a reason. Tell me why tell no, no I refuse. We're moving on Brad Ro. Have Sixty. Games this season. The way it's going to be broken down is forty games against those in your division, those teams and then twenty of those games we'll be interleague play and. I think that's a pretty even balance I. I kind of like the split. I think that that by doing twenty interleague games, though we're going to see a greater amount of diversity in the teams that we that are that are personal teams face the ones we watch right, so that'll be interesting to see. Will be, and it's not just random early either. It's the West the west central play. The central East will play the east that right. It's a very structured. They're try. They're really trying to limit limit travel. Yeah in the advantage in this case truly goes to the AL and NL because they don't ever have to leave their time zones. That's right, you know. The central is going to have a little bit of travel, but the west man guy he goes. Did He's an Arlington? Can I push that so box underneath you a little, please do please do because it's absurd spot you golly. A Texas needs to be in the central. Do some realigning. Add some more teams. I don't know what you gotTa do get Texas out of the West. I'm sorry I know you're in New, York, and everything west of the Mississippi is west, but man yeah. Middle America man come on. It is Middle America H. Quebec Houston Houston should be considered Middle America yeah yeah. They're so far east. Texas, it doesn't make any sense to me. Geographically you, yes. I agree with. It makes me some rules. Some rules really quick their roles that everybody needs to be prepared for and I now it's getting beat. The heavily. We probably have through this fairly quickly. The universal. D. H. will be implemented for this season twenty twenty. We'll see universal D. H. doesn't matter was league. You're in so sorry. Matt Bomb and some of your other. Lester. Three batter minimum so the rule now states and we've talked about this before, but just as recap, the players relievers specifically relieving pitchers. They're gonNA. Come in, and they're gonNA have to face a minimum of three batters or retire aside. Or get injured. Those were their options. Yep. That's it otherwise. They gotTA. Stick it out. Yeah, No position players to pitch. There's been on. Know what it was remember. They had that rule that they're going to implement. That rule is out the window position. Players Compete as needed. See, and that's why I was getting, too. I was going. Say The no. It's okay you covered it. We'll move on Brad. Any game that is suspended for any reason whether or otherwise we'll be restarted. They will not start over. They're gonNA initiate. Play from you know the point in the game where it was suspended. Yeah, and that's specifically for games that don't meet the the the the minimum criteria of a game of like. Like five inning by innings if they played five innings, whatever then they're fine, that can be a complete game, but if it's like three and a half innings, and they're suspended, they'll start from the three and a half innings. They won't start over like the typically would otherwise well said. That is a wonderful caveat. Okay the raid. Rules have shifted by about thirty days, but the only real major difference here, and then the only thing worth mentioning past that is that if you're going to trade somebody, the only people you can trade from or four is the sixty man roster which we're going to get into in just a minute, but. The. The the the the pool of available players to barter and trade with is severely limited to sixty players this time. everybody else stays with the club there with with the franchise's with and If player moves from the sixty they have to be on the sixty man roster on their traded to okay. Brad tells about roster sizes since that was gay Guay. So. So like you said there's going to be sixty man roster, which is basically going to be used like the forty man roster has been in years past. Yeah But the difference is is you cannot bring anybody onto your squad unless it's trade or I guess. Now I guess you can't. You can't replace somebody on the sixty manner. Ostra somebody who's not on it. but I I think it's only three anyway, so you've got the sixty man roster. But the actual like active roster starting the first day of the season is going to be thirty. The other thirty players are going to be. Away at another training facility, basically like expand extended spring training, but in the city where the team is so that they can act, so they can have those i. come in. Should there be an injury positive cova test anything whatever? So yes, so thirty players in the clubhouse for two weeks then it goes down to twenty eight players for another two weeks, and then after those two weeks ago down twenty six for the rest of the season which. Is what was going to be the standard for the season. Right the new rules so. That ends up being pretty normal They're going to have something that's called a taxi squad. Now what a taxi squad is is three players that are on the sixty man roster who will travel with the team? So that case there's an injury or there is a positive Kobe test then they can just go right in it. Take that players place right away. One player on the taxi squad has to be a catcher so for the mariners I saw. I saw yesterday or today I believe it was that cowl. Raleigh is going to be on the taxi squad. He's going to be there taxi catcher He is not a guy who was probably ever GonNa see any big league time this year unless there were significant injuries at the big level. But this year he'll probably get a chance. Yeah, because. In the thing that's Kinda. Cool by the taxi catcher is that they're not just off. They're not just off away from the team like everybody else a taxi squad is there actually with the teams? They can work in the bullpen stretchers. That's I thought that was pretty cool. That's something that they're doing so those guys can stay sharp and keep the chemistry with the pictures because you've got to do that, so. Now I. Wish they were thinking with that one. The Yankees are wishing they'd kept Austin. Remind poor buggers. I'm sure they are yeah for real. But to Austin Romance Credit. You know he'll have significantly more opportunity. In Detroit or wherever he is now I think he's still in Detroit right anyway. This season very exciting. Because I freaking Love Austin role nine. He's my main I do like the I like the role. Mind brothers, Austin particularly I. Think he's I. Think he's awesome. He's awesome. He's a good player. So. Let's talk about covid nineteen because that's still a thing gay. She didn't know still happening YEP. Maybe even spiking. Okay depending on where you Larry Oil. Yeah, that's right so baseball has gone to great lengths to facilitate the safety of their players in a staff. Anybody participating on field and off the field, but during the Games so if you're on the bench, right, you're no longer be sitting in the dugout. You'll be sitting in the stands six feet apart. That's a number of seats right I think. What is it three or four minimum seats apart? Something like that. Too, I would do honestly I do four seats to be. Say Yes, what I'm saying I. Think I think three. I think three seats is? Probably Eh, but yeah probably not gonna cut it, so they're going to sit a number of seats apart each player, and then when they're called up to start warming up or whatever it is, it's going to be very different. I'm really excited to see that sort of transition period. Those X. is how much sooner they're going to need to call guys in. What sort of Warm up that will. You. Know bring about I. Don't know I. I am really interested to see what that looks like every player will be. There'll be testing every other day. Actual like the swab the test, and if a player test positive one time they must then test negatively twice before they're allowed back into any facility at all. Not even the off site training facility where the remainder of the sixty man is, he is stationed in training. None of that I do think that's smart though I for obvious reasons and yeah. I mean. It sounds heavily precautious in. It is I mean that's the that's the and they need to. They need to be because we saw how fast everything spread. At the beginning, and then now with guys working out I mean there are. Seems like there's a ton ton of positive test. And even the NBA released a statistic the other day that sixteen out of three hundred to tested players were tested positive well, which is which is consistent with five percent, not not not to mention here where I am Clemson football. Players Clemson that are testing positive right now and it's like. It's madness so. Yeah there. I think lsu quarantined guys because of a nightclub outbreak and yeah, yeah, it's. It's. It's insane it's. It's bad news bears. If you'll pardon the the reference. Okay! Terrible okay so. Here we go. We can't baseball jokes. There will be. There will be no spitting of any kind. No dip, no seeds nothing. I think they can chew gum. I, don't if it's like put it in the rapper and then put it in the trash we've had. We've had players come out and say I. DON'T I. Don't know how to deal with that. And they. I don't know that they intentionally planned to violate this rule, but they expect it to be. To the selves, anyway to be in violation, and and I think this is going to be a really interesting one for you think about it. Do you think about it? As baseball players. You get so used to having something in your mouth while you're playing whether it is gum. At that point, you could be dip. Maybe those guys have been different for fifteen years playing bass, very likely or even sunflower seeds. You Know I. I don't how. I would handle the sunflowers. Thing I be tough. It would be super tough. Yeah I. Don't know but. What I'm interested in is how MLB is going to enforce that one. Okay? What? What are you? GonNa? Do Yeah, that's an automatic help. Strike to somebody. I don't know what the penalty is. A somebody's spitting. Yes, so we're GONNA see that's a pretty interesting and then everybody will have a temperature check twice every day. That's it. That's the covert stuff that you're probably wondering about so. The thing I will say about this season is that we've not heard any? Or should say it's been confirmed. There will be no expanded playoff. Situation which Radna agree is just asinine. It, does it? It doesn't make any sense to me that the owners would not accept. The players are like we'll do. We'll do expanded playoffs for you. You can make back some of that money TV deals that you're not getting fans orange like no, no! Everything's about money it until it's about money, and then it's not about money. Back off gate. Tell me how to live my life Oh okay? Okay okay all right Oh. My Gosh! It's the most areas thing, but anyway I just can't. I can't believe this I. was telling Brad and I was going to try to avoid this but Brad. We have just a minute left and I'm GonNa say this, okay. I demand I'm going to publicly announce that I demand rob Manfred resignation. I second that much. Maybe we can get. We SORTA CHANGED DOT Org. Petition. Okay. Get that Senate out to you because I don't want him negotiating the I'm saying 'cause we may never have baseball. Training to go she it. S His yeah, no, not not not okay. No and and I will. I will give him this. He did say the right thing this week. He said we've got to be better for our fans. Which I'm like that, yeah. Of course you do, that's a no brainer. Almost effect actually came out and said I know but who. Say, listen who told him to say it, and it probably Bob cost. Bob Costas. or Joe Tories like listen. All right. I've been managing clubhouses for a really long time. And it's not, it's not different. With public relations, it's not. Anyway, it's the exact same approach freak. Apologize to the people just be. Yep. You still can be in charge if you're humble. Oh my gosh, and with that we're going to take a quick break and we'll be right back when they're gonna Brad's GonNa catch me up on everything I miss.

It's GONNA be fine and it'll be okay. But we do have some catching up to do because there were a couple of things that were brought up on the podcast in his absence that he was kind of like, he texted me after basically like scolding made slapping my wrist for saying things. Like I was there to yell at you. Why are you saying these things I? Put some of them in the comments on the Youtube Channel. It's true. I tell when you were at certain spots as those comments or popping up. Yes! Yup, but so we're going to get caught up a little bit and. I completely failed I was so. Just enamored with the failure of Major League Baseball to get anything done any kind of cheating during that time I completely forgot to stick with the bureau so before we get caught up on any of our other meanderings and topics. Let's talk about some. Dude I'm listening I'm wearing my Yagi hat right now. Let me show the Nice. One of them. We have ten of these with the romanized letters on the shop. This is my. This is the black. Don't forget which team it is I just wanted to see the black lettering. It's it's black lettering with with. With red behind it I. Think it's I, don't know. Is that the wizards? Maybe the Katie Whiz I. Don't remember which one. FEELS LIKE KT whizzes right? Though that's what it feels, right. Okay. We'll say it's right anyway. But so.

That's what this is. How you spell baseball in Korean and we got it on a hats, very cool That's their NC Dino one. which now we have to talk about. We do because that is our K B O team that we chose independently of another and somehow we ended up on. The, NC, diagnose for our individual reasons, but anyways. That's right. Are Diagnosed with the Best K B O by far thirty, one and thirteen as of Friday, night June, the twenty six. That's right four games up over the womb heroes, and do saw four games four and a half over the deuce on bears users Oh Dude, these diagnose like they're just. They're dominating. They are better off pensively so much better defensively I think we jumped on the bandwagon and I'm going to see it through I'm GonNa follow it all the way through the end of the season because I want a Dang championship baseball. You need one you need one. Bad. What did I say weeks ago? When we started the K B O thing I said look. You'll learn I, said one of two things is going to happen, either I'm going to be humbled, or you're going to finally taste the championship. I don't know which one is going to be. And you know with my luck. Honestly, what's going to happen, is there. Stop don't say it. Stop. Stop it right now. Okay and we're moving on. Diana's best. Deal if you're not watching, you should. It's a ton of fun is fun. It's it's a little bit different, Brandon Baseball and a good watch. It's a great great experience and one day. Where are you going to travel to South Korea and we are going to go together Brad. We're GONNA. We're GONNA to an NC diners right? That's exactly right, Yep, Yep. That's how that's going to go down. All right. Okay so. I mentioned earlier that Brig was yelling at me on Youtube and in the comments section on Youtube and is because of my. My overrated player selection, I WANNA go. Babe Ruth. I've got bryce Harper number two. I'M GONNA go. Derek Jeeter is my number one. So those were my three. Most overrated players yeah. I went there I did go there. That's true. I, just I listen. You can't boo boo. You cannot pick babe. Ruth you can't. He's this Sultan of Swat loss of clout the. Loss of cloud that wimpy out here, no, you. You. It's just. So Maddie U. K? But Brig Ko all. No? You, really WANNA. Tell me he would come in. Today's game hit sixty home runs. We're not. Talking about today's game. But. That's why he's overrated. Yes, he was the best player in his era, but he's not the best player. He's not the best player ever best player in his era. Bro that the whole thing has changed since that's been one hundred years, everything is years. You cannot call the best player in a sport from one hundred years ago, the best player in the history of the game. I never said he was the best player in the history. Game I'm saying he's not on. The overrated list. Is what I'm saying. The only reason I'm saying he's overrated. Because people treat him like his game with translate to today and it would not. He would say. Babe Ruth would be. An average to slightly above average player today's game. You wait a minute. Hold on, heard me. You heard me right. You're telling me. Stop it! You're telling me. Babe Ruth. The Babe Ruth was not athletic, enough intelligent enough. Dedicated enough whatever you WANNA. Call it! To adapt and overcome and find ways to succeed in today's. He'd be a right fielder in today's game. What's what's wouldn't be right? How about this? Who is his COMP in today's game? Now that is a great question and I think the only person we can. I don't know. Actually. That's because part of me wants to say big sexy, but I don't know. But that's a stature is a statute. That says I will. I will say this. I think babe. Ruth was likely more athletic than big sexy I'll give him that all first shirt, and for those of you that don't know big sexy is Bartolo pallone okay. He he for sure was more athletic than alone net, and not that colonial athletic. He absolutely right nominee, but he's doing something. We Love Bartolo alone. Okay, we will never disparage big sexy, not one right in it. The Dude is awesome except for the whole PD problem, but we're not gonNA talk about that because we still. A little bit love okay. Here's the deal though I. It's a great question and I think you probably pose the question to further. Illustrate your point that there is no comparable translation of his stature and skill into today's game. Off off the cuff. To guys come to mind. Daniel. Down it. But only says of the last. Eighteen I'm not saying Daniel Vogel Bach is a great player. I like him right. Yeah, so you know what I'm saying and I saw. I. See what you're saying. Yeah, but. Tasks Sorber couldn't pitch. The way the baby could bro. I think anybody could vintage. Everybody pitchers in Red Sox, his dude, because of who he was facing. I don't care. And I understand. He's a victim of his era I understand that. Jerry only problem like he is I wouldn't even consider the top five player of all time. I'm not saying listen I'm not saying he's the top five player of all I'm saying he doesn't belong on the overrated, and that's and that's my thing is I'm saying that he's overrated. Because people still treat him like he is a top five player that yes, the name is hollowed. Because he was the greatest player of his era, he ended the deadball era I'll give them all that, but at the same time for sure cannot call somebody. The played in his time. You can't treat him like people. Do People Treat Babe like he's Michael Jordan? Because Michael Jordan was by far the best player. I should say by far. He was the greatest player in NBA history and I'm a Lebron. James ever now ever ever because his game train old any. Fast. Yes and absolutely and I would say listen I would say the same thing about Nolan. Ryan you could put Nolan Ryan into any situation on the mound any even in the dead ball aero before they had a mountain, and that dude would sling just gas. He's man that he he would go on hid. I don't care. You could put in fifty years from now. He's still gonNA, go, it's true. Yeah, no, I totally agree with you on that, so I see what you're saying is that people are treating the babe like he's the Michael Jordan of baseball. A is a problem for baseball. And be just is not, true. No I agree with that. But what I'm arguing is that you cannot. If you remove that argument, you still cannot argue with the fact that he does not belong on the overrated player list because he defined decades of baseball. Yes, he literally, and then, and then generations who came after him, who who tried to live up to what he put on the table. So the reason we have home run racist because of the Babe, the reason we care about about swagger like stand in the box or calling a shot, or whatever is because of the Bambino. Bro You cannot, you cannot separate baseball from its history. We are a culture obsessed obsessed with our own his. True even more so than we really ever cared to consider our future as evidenced. Recently and There's another rob man. But. What? What I'm saying is you cannot deny. that. You. You just can't put him on overrated player list. You CAN'T K-. That's all and I think it all comes down to your criteria for overrated player, personally with my criteria of an overrated player. He fits generally speaking probably not. Has It. All right, listen you have. You CAN'T and. You've already gone on the record and I'm not trying to persuade you and I'm not. I'm not trying to retain. It sounds like you're sidestepping a little bit. Which is fine. You're allowed to do that. I'm just saying. He doesn't belong on the transcendent list for sure unless you want to heavily weight influence, then absolutely on the I, there's a league is a league named after him, I'll give like I will full on say like the Babes influence on baseball was transcended the fact that there is a league named after him and the same argument I made then was that Steph Curry has eliminated the center from the NBA. That doesn't make him right a top five player of all time or no a transcendent player. Yes, he shoots three pointers better than anybody else. But there are gaps in his game. That would not translate to other eras. So okay, let's talk transcendence. Let's just talk inside, okay. Let's say. Let's say we're going to include transcendence as a as a bullet point as a requirement, okay. If you're going to say. Transcendence as a requirement, then you absolutely cannot called there. You can't do it. Derek jeter overrated. Yeah. Some people do and I did. I know. I listen to it. I I through things. It was undignified. May, or may not have been dipping into the anger phase of my grieving process. I'm just saying no as long as I can help you through the process. That was a service. Few people could have provided effectively you did. Going three jeeter one. Just Zip right on through leading your face. Just Bush were just accelerated and that's really. I'm grateful because I through those find. So so Brig. Let's. Let's get fully caught up here because I know that you've been itching to give us your three most overrated player well I. Don't know. Itching is the way to go, but. You're going to give us three overrated players. Yeah and I'm GonNa do it strategic. Okay, because why would I do it? That's right. So! Hey. I I I'M GONNA. Give you my number three. And I'M GONNA I'm. GonNa Move Erez here okay, and I'm going to do so on. Purpose I I'm going to go with John Rocker. I don't think anybody would disagree with you. Know partly because the nine plus VIP group and facebook they they voted John rocker's most overrated player of all time. I cannot disagree that he is absolutely deserving on overrated hundred percent K. I don't even feel like I need to justify that He has a war of three point five, okay? Literally also his his stint on survivor would just probably reinforce all of. Its terrible. Although apparently there are significant number of people who find him extremely attractive and that's that's strange, probably what he has going for him, right? Okay anyways. Only bring that up because I saw it on a list. That's it. I thought Oh. You interesting. Maybe 'cause I gotta give him you know. Get a sandwich positively in there. My my number two over players going to be a little controversial. I gotta go with current player. I think current players deserve some notoriety and some some. Place of section, maybe on the overrated listen, it was heavily discussed in the VIP group to include not only this player, but some other current contemporary players and I got to give it to Giancarlo. Stanton Yeah I think that that his one season in Miami with all those home runs, and all that everything was the MVP and it was awesome. It really was and and then he stumbled. Maybe drunkenly or whatever into this contract with New York and I don't understand. Is that contract was actually given to him by Miami and they're like Oh wait, we can't afford that. We've got to treat him. So that's what I'm saying. Man and I don't know what happened. I'm still confused all the thing I'm being thing with Stanton I. His swing is broken. But he's just so big and strong. The ball goes out anyway. He swings hard through like one zone, and if the pitcher happens to put the ball, they're. He's GonNa. hit it out, and that's why strikes L. Time. Right, of course you know, and I don't know if it's a some version of the hips, because he took that fastball, the face from known under the Mike Myers. Right that. That, maybe he said some version of the hips, but I don't think so I. Yeah, I. It's been a long time. I don't think that he does. Yeah. It's been a long time. And an whole literal identity change later I don't. I'm not sure I'm going to give him that one right now, but no say belong on the list. He he belongs on the list, and I'll put an asterisk next to his name for sure like like same with Bryce Harper, a lot of people talk about Bryce Harper, being overrated for sure okay I get that, but he's also made a lot of progress. Just in the last season when I season in Philadelphia and you gotta give him some props there, so so the I feel like the contemporary players deserve a transitional. Placement where whatever on the list. But I think Giancarlo Stanton. If he's not careful, he's going to solidify himself. Yes, and really really it. It all has to do with that contract because I don't think. That if you took all statistics I if you took all of his career, put it together. then. He doesn't belong overrated list. He doesn't belong in an underrated lists. He's kind of just kind of a regular ball. Player does pretty well sometimes and. Do you have a little bit of a problem. Other Times it was that one great season, and but now now the problem is, he's on the biggest stage ever, and he's got one of the biggest contracts ever, and it's not panning out, and so it's. He's a victim of circumstance. But, if he's not careful, he's going to find a permanent placement on. Yes, yeah, I agree. Because of the dollar sign and that's and that's part of the problem with this with these overrated lists is that? Some guys. It's fault of their own like yeah. He took the money, but it was offered to him. Can't blame the guy for taking the money, and I said that Bryce Harper is overrated, but it's no fault of his own. It's just simply because of all the attention he got. He was never going to be able to live up to that. So never. Yeah! I know it. With some of these guys. And Look, they're decent ball players. And the and they're going to. They're going to probably be great clubhouse. Guys in the future with some significant leadership billy lot of influence. We all know. John Carlos Stanton's GonNa have a career after baseball. We don't know what it'll be right, but the dude is. He's on social media. He's building his presence outside. Trevor Bowers, the same way who cares listen Trevor Bauer whether he decides whether he becomes great or or tanks, or whatever it doesn't matter I. Don't think he'll tank by the way and I love Trevor Bauer, but he is developing himself outside baseball, and I think John Carlos Stanton is doing something very similar And so I think they're going to be fine outside baseball. Yeah I. I can't blame him for taking the money. No, no, but I mean as far as the numbers in you know all that I think. Stanton's is currently over it now. You're. Are you ready for this? I'm ready to remember one. WHO's your tally? Never One? This is my initial nomination on the VIP, groups Paul? Actually is a Yankee. And I don't know if that's because I'm more familiar with the Yankees. Or whatever I don't know, but Phil Rizzuto. And I. Know that I'm GonNa. Get a bunch of backlash from some Yankee fans gotTA. Listen Phil. Rizzuto is overrated okay. He had one great season one. He was an MVP one time. And that was what nineteen fifty and and that's it. That's it. It took him forty almost forty years. Get into the hall of fame. There's probably reason. Shocking. The fact that he made it in all at all yet? Thirteen thirteen years in the big leagues, he only hit over three hundred two times. He's a lifetime to seventy three hitter. That's right so his defense. His defense was was great. But. I feel like. Maybe this is the real problem. Maybe the promise played shortstop. In pinstripes now. That's a problem. It is, but I don't feel like. You can be a two seventy three hitter and get in the hall of fame based on your defense. That's that doesn't drive with me. It doesn't it doesn't add up in it in. It's upsetting and and that's okay I don't know man I just think. I think the fact that he was born in New York. Maybe has something to do with it for notoriety on, tell maybe. There's a lot to be said there. Here's the real thing he wants. Seven World Series Championships the Yankees on all that at five six. Right seven and he was a five time all star. Because of his defense. Was a player of the year wants and what will not MVP for? The point is I. Think when you add up all his numbers he is. We're looking at a overrated player. Yeah Yeah. I would agree with you that say on everything that I'm looking at right now. We he did miss three years in the military, and that I feel like those are crucial years. Those were owner show years in his career. But at the same time I mean there are a lot of guys who missed because military that time well, and they were his year twenty, five, twenty, six, twenty seven eight years, yeah. So you're right there crucial, but at the same time played all the way to thirty eight. Point time to make it up I. Don't know I'm. Plus the. A little bit different back then the fifties, forties and fifties, and all that but. The point is I think Phil Rizzuto is my pick for the most overrated player of all time. There you go I can't fault for that. Don't disagree in. Well, that's great because I'll just continue to do that's. And that's fine. I'll accept that all our. But let's go ahead and and take a short break when we get back. We're going to continue a conversation that a brief conversation actually that I had with Kyle last week to brig heard and wanted to get it on when I asked what we what should have been done with Yankee stadium will be right back. Up The Take Lucia to? Buy Me some peanuts and Frag Chet-. I know US. Get back with Root for the. Take as day down when it says show. For Ed Swat. To. The Sierra at the own bomb all gain shop, kids, baseball starts nine process dot com. Welcome back baseball family in our final segment of today's episode, I wanted to weigh in on and expand the conversation that brand. Kyle have last week where they talked about Yankee Stadium Old Yankee Stadium. You see him. Yeah, all the Yankee Stadium as we all know old Yankee Stadium is the House that ruth built and it was. It was a cathedral of baseball. The only. The only Cathedral Baseball, but it definitely was among the Oh Jeez right? Right like I would go so far as to say, it might be considered the Notre Dame of. Baseball. Well said Sir because I mean. Yeah, like you've got Wrigley and fenway right also cathedrals, but none of them compare to the Yankee stadium well. I think those I would consider Wrigley. And Fenway monuments of baseball or Or something. Equally honoured equally hallowed. because I I. Don't want to disparage those facilities at all I mean. Either of them so I don't know. But everything I've heard everything I've read everything that I've been told is that they are just? Incredible and rich with history and dynamic in there. Just the texture of the facility, but that also what you could say about old, Yankee Stadium now rent old Yankee Stadium though. Just because it is what it is, it is. It was where it was right on the river and everything not that the new ones not I know is right across the street, but the old one. Was this. It was like you just. You know like. I don't know how to say it. A Cathedral. The know yet arm. That's well said. So. But anyways, when but kyle and I were talking last week I assume just. Honestly I, didn't write down any of those questions. I was going off the cuff with every one of them. And I want to know what he just came to my mind. Like what? What do you think they should have on him? And and I asked him because I've had an answer in my mind for one. Did they open the new one in two thousand and nine? Yeah, so since they started construction, and they mentioned that they were going to tear down the old stadium. I've been saying that they should have turned it into a museum. Like that's been my thing forever like I would love I'm not even a Yankee. Fan You consider me, Yankee Hater I would have loved it if. They hit turned it into a museum because there's so much history there, and that's what we WANNA. Do we WANNA build our Yankee Stadium Museum Yeah and and Brig actually has like an extensive list and I was going through. I was going through and picking stuff, and I was looking at at the list like the. It's like ninety percent of my stuff too so well, so let's just go through it so as a Yankee Fan. I had to stop. WHO's like? And that's the thing right because there is so much so I know it's unbeatable. Here's the idea now I think for me I'm considering this in terms of bronze statues and. Markers on the field, you know we will be maintained forever and I had I've just now returned from both the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the Louisville Slugger Bat factory and museum in the same trip, so. Within the last ten days so now I'm. I'm thinking museum I'm thinking honoring. Kim and I'm thinking visually about what this might be if they had. Kicked had maintained old Yankee Stadium and made it a museum like you say. So. What? I love about your suggestion Brad. Was that you would? You would keep. Those you keep the facility as is. Bud Turn it into a museum and then allow people to walk out on the field, and in the stands you know, make it accessible, and you'd have to modify some things obviously, but then there would be humans in each key part of the field. That would that would highlight or honor or immortalize I. Think is a great word. Whatever these amazing experiences were. Yeah and like the big thing is you know you talk about traffic on the grass and maintaining like get rid of the grass. Put in turf, pave it whatever you WANNA do. But make sure you have foul lines. Yes, you can have painted basis painted home plate everything like just recreate the field on whatever surface you decide on, and then like you said significant places on the field like you've got. Let's see what what's one here, pickle and brig okay. Through here hold on what Brad asked. The two of us to do is to develop a list of just you know whatever we thought might could be considered to be included in in the old Yankee Stadium Museum had it been a possibility, so we have this huge list and it's it's awesome, so how `bout? Let's just talk about Aaron Boone. Great example okay, because we both have that on our list. It's recent it's easy. It's game seven, two, thousand and three. It was one of my games of the week not long ago and. You could is. Just put. Make a thing whatever a bronze statues of fans! Cheering or something? In left field right in the bleachers where the ball landed in left field during that game when Aaron Boone came off the bench. And then. And then made history. Yeah well and I, and my thing has always been like. Find the spot where that ball land that's landed. Yes, put a seat! Put a seat there. With a description on seat back, and you could even put I. Honestly didn't think this told us now. You could put a speaker. Yeah, on the seat in the ground with the call and a video monitor. Even if you want to, yeah, yeah, have it right there, so anybody who either didn't see. It doesn't know about or just wants to relive it because. Anybody who's there is going to want to remove it. Let's be so you can see. You can watch it. You can hear it ever you WANNA do. And in. It's right there for you. Another one. Another one that I thought of was the infamous Pine Tar game. That was at Yankee Stadium. That was the royals against the. So have a seat where the ball landed, but also maybe like a display of you know. You'RE NOT GONNA get the Bat probably, but you can put a bronze version of the BAT replicated showed. You know this is. This is where the tar was. This is why it was an issue. There was too much. You know or are. They thought there was too much because stretch here explained the rule. A little bit have a monitor that shows. The homerun George Brett losing his mind. And the call and everything could even have George Brett. In bronze like this with his ends up. Storming out of the DUGOUT. You? Have to do with a little thing that says this is what happened. You know and yeah and. Like with that expression on his face would be. That would be amazing. It would be yeah. Yeah, you could do either one of those and it would. It would be fantastic. It'd be awesome. How about the flip? The flip at Derek jeter to. Two thousand. Oh October, third, deep, October thirteen, thousand one. Lint No! Yes, definitely you've gotTa have a bronze statue of jeeter going into foul territory with horror episode of waiting. For Right. But what what? Where do you put the ball? Do you put the ball? Indeed fingertips I don't know. I think you'd think. That makes much sense as anything. Or how about the time? How about the time Derek Jeter dove into this dove into the. Seats in. The third baseline. Yeah that would be an amazing statue I'll be on. The. He caught that ball dude. With the fans stayed up getting out of the way in bronze, Let's. Just think about it. Would be amazing if you're walking around with your sets on. Everybody has an APP right. There's an APP and you know in the. Code or or you, you download the APP, and you're like okay, I'm at this Oh. What is what is that about? And you click the thing and it pumps it through your phone or your headphones? And tells you. Dare to watch the highlight and you think. Oh, my Gosh, and they tell you the back story and you get to you get the full circumstance the weight of the circumstance. No Dude how `bout listen. Listen. Here real quick. Free so so a bunch of bronze statues could be outrageous. Right like decade could be was. If you're going to outrageous like if you have too many bronze statues, too many places like it could get overcrowded in could just be too much. Yes, so if you have like a plaque. There were non baseball events at Yankee Stadium. Death row like. Let's go September. Twenty Eighth Nineteen seventy, six. Maybe Muhammad Ali. Boxing. I lost it. Ken Norton a Yankee Stadium saying. You put put a plaque. Right? Were they had the ring? Put that out there and say this is where Muhammad Ali Mohammed Ali box. Can Kate Speaking Muhammad Ali? If you've not been to the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville Kentucky. You're missing the best museum. I've ever been to in my entire life. And you're not the first person I've heard say that. Good because it is the finest, it is the finest cultural historical. Museum experience of air experience in my life ever. been like four five times. I can't stop going back. It doesn't hurt that. The Louisville slugger bat factories like four blocks away or whatever it. That doesn't hurt at all, but I I kid you not I would go for that alone and. It's one of the things I would say. Based on the Muhammad Ali Center. Is that they have so they have ringside seats. They have a full canvas ring setup with a predictor, so you go on the mezzanine level where you actually begin on the second floor and you're walking around the level, and once you get to this canvas. There's a projector in the ceiling. Displaying fight highlights and interview highlights. Of Mohammed Ali onto a full-size canvas ring. On the first floor. That's below you. And then Sarah seats set up around them. And this is to my point where you there red velvet ringside seats, right ringside seats, and you sit there and this ring and you can toggle through. There's a little display board that comes up at the video monitor, and you can talk which fight you WanNa Watch. You can watch the whole freaking fight. That's literally sitting ringside. And and you could do that at the earliest. You can have places where you can sit and watch watch cartoons. Perfect game you. Leakey's win any of their World Series Watch. Them Watch Clinton World Series. You could yeah like the list is endless. Yes, of the possibilities with games, you could just just have a little spot in the concourse where you could watch. And maybe have a stand that sells old school hotdogs and one of us. What about what about what about if you're? What if you're sitting there in the bullpen? In deep deep deep Centerfield and you can play enter Sandman. then. Run on the field on your phone. Or on WANNA video board outside the on the you know leading out onto the field from the bullpen. WOULD THAT BE AMAZING? That'd be fantastic. And of course you've got to keep monument park. Park stays, and it gets updated with the one at the Niki state, not of course. Because absolutely, how about Lou GEHRIG's find each? Yes. Yes, that was the that was one of the ones that I referenced last week. You've got to have a spot that. That identifies. Lou GEHRIG's farewell speech for sure. Most definitely. let's see what else did. We have on the on the list. Game, one eighty one right. That's right. Was April, eighteenth, nine hundred eighteenth, nineteen, twenty-three against the Red Sox, this is the first game played in Yankee Stadium, in old Yankee Stadium. It happened to be against the red sox. And what did what did they do? He goes yard course. homer goes yard. Not just goes yard he goes. To win the ballgame. Of course. And that's why and you know. I'm going to say that's why the Yankees win so many titles because they played so many games stadium. The very first game was a wince. When the mariners moved into SAFECO. They lost my buddy, said well. That's too bad because that means, it's right. And he hasn't been. For. Okay I was thinking about bronze statues. Thinking wouldn't it be cool? If you had a bronze statue of Wade boggs out in the outfield, riding on the back of that horse with the policeman sitting atop. A Central Park Style and he's got his hand in the air like this wave into the fans in the mail that would be a killer bronze statue out now feel. I mean. Yeah, I still like I still like above all the visual that you painted of a bronze statue of George, Brett screaming out of the Dugout, I, seriously since you mentioned that I haven't been able to get out of my head. I want that they want then back. And just get a picture. That we can. Put It on the wall vinyl stickers of him coming out Doug at yeah. Put that in the background. For sure. For sure yeah, absolutely. percent. Hundred percent I mean we could go on and on and on forever with this, because like we said the history of the Yankees extensive, but let us know what you put in the Yankee Stadium.

Graciously aired our show and made it available on the media sites. You all know who you are. Thank you, thank you. And especially to Jacqueline Sylvia from J. s web solutions. For generously archiving our programs on my website, all you have to do is go to www dot. Branko events DOT com. Arrow down until you see Branko. PODCAST click on those. And you will see all of our archives programs from latest to earliest. Near Jackie all right. Those of you who are familiar with radio particularly Boston radio going back decades. Probably remember a talk show host on WBZ for many years. He did shows on the weekends at night. His name is Kenny Meyer while can. Has Been invited on our programs, so he's going to share with us is good wisdom. Knowledge of Radio and a lot of stories, because we always love Ken Myers stories that he has to share, he's very inspirational so without further ado, welcome Ken Meyer. How are you sir? I'm fine, Bob, how are you? I appreciate those kind words. I hope I can live up to them. I'm sure you will. Can you've you've done this for decades? So I have no problem with your your willingness to keep up. Welcome! Thank you for being on the show so. You don't know. Of course I did hear on WBZ on and off when I from the East Coast. But I'm curious to know sort of your upbringing. What what got you interested in sports? All my Gosh I have to go back to my. My Dad's so that. I'm originally from Rochester New York. And when I was growing up My Dad was a big baseball fan. And want to Rochester redwing ballgames. And Rochester at that time was farm club of Saint Louis. The Saint Louis Cardinals and He used to. Come home after Games and tell me about Satchel page coming in when when Miami would come into Rochester. It's at a Red Wing Stadium and When Bob Gibson Zana's way up to the majors to go to Saint Louis My dad used to see him pitch. He was also very friendly as a matter of fact with a relief pitcher before I was born in Rochester a Mac. and. Max Ser. Cotton is girlfriend and my mom and dad used to go out on the town once in awhile. And One Night Magazine or Deuce my dad joy a solo name Stan the man musial. Who went up to St? Louis and never came back. It was only in Rochester for two months and I just got hooked on Sports. And you know at that time. The Yankees are really big and there were stations up in that area the broadcast. Yankee Games and I grew up listening to people like Mel Allen. Who will always be one of my heroes, one of the best and Phil Rizzuto. After of course he played ball I was able to interview him when I was when I was still going to college actually so I've liked sports sports broadcasting all my life and. And I always liked radio I was lucky enough to get it on the fact that old time radio as we like to call it. was still going strong when I was when I was a growing up. I would still listen to gun smoke every Sunday night at. Six thirty and The Lone Ranger every Monday Wednesday and Friday. And when I was in school, I went to Batavia. my mom used to I was I was fans of soap operas. The Romance of Helen Trent and our Gal Sunday, and my mother used to take them for me, and when I would come home on weekends I would listen to both both shows and eventually get to meet both people. So that's how I I grew up loving radio all my life. I became very friendly with announcer in Rochester. WHO A great deal I can never repay. His name was Bill Gibbons and he worked at wls AM radio up there, which was kind of the equivalent of Wbz here as far as prestige in as far as power was concerned, fifty thousand watts, fifty thousand watts and he. Recommended in wrote me a letter recommendation to Graham Junior College in Boston because he had spent some time in Boston eastbound above the six or seven years in Boston and worked ironically at WBZ. So, I owed a great deal to him. He died. Much before he should have, he was only fifty three years old. And that was in nineteen, seventy three, but I still think about him, and and miss him to this day because if you WANNA. Talk about a mentor man, he was one of the best. So. Tell me about your Batavia. Days I'm curious. What what did you learn from there? That helps you get into your career. Brock ACA broadcasting career. I learned how not to be afraid of an audience. because. We used to in the lower in the seventh and eighth and ninth grades. We used to have what they would call speech families. And we would have to pick whatever we wanted to. And Get up in front of the the student body, and and talk about that particular topic. And, plus the fact that on Fridays there was a magazine called current events, and we had to do the same thing in our in our history class. We have picked an article. I mean some of the same article, but we had to get up in front of the whole class and recite it. And plus the fact I was in our senior chorus. and And also a member of our school dance fan. And because of that they would always be looking for a master of ceremonies when we would perform at school or Or go to different schools to perform. and. For whatever reason they always picked me and I being a ham never backed down, so I got used to being in front of an audience and. That helped a great deal when I when I went to college When I went to college, there was a school radio station there. WC as be which was which stood for Cambridge School of broadcasting. because. Didn't become Graham Junior college until my second year, but they still kept the call letters. And it was very interesting because one day. a gentleman named Bill Vac. WHO, at one, time was hard on our of our H. Track in Boston and on the Chicago White Sox at time and also did commentary on Wbz TV. was in the area, and I went to hear him speak and got a chance to meet him and. When he introduced me from the audience he got the call letters mixed up, and instead of me being from WCBS, be I, was from WCBS. And people thought I was a lot more important than I was, but I never forgot that. and. So let just of the experiences. I headed it at Grand Junior College. It was a two year school. I did not want four years because quite frankly. I spent all my time in Batavia I spent two years in college. I just didn't want to spend any more time in school. I want to get a job. And the timing was was absolutely perfect it turned out that one of my instructors. Was Friendly with the the program director? WBZ Radio Gentleman named Bill shoop. And they used to work together a W Y which at that time was a CBS? BOSTON! Ninety, five ninety, and so when I came to Boston, my parents and I came to Boston on a combination. Of vacation and to help find a job. Before you go down that road I'm curious about your college experience. Tell me about how how you develop as a radio announcer there and what accommodations? You needed to be successful how you got. We did I did. A sports show or sports commentary. On the radio station at night we would. We would pick whatever the top story of the day might be. And I would do a two minute commentary on it strictly off the top of my head. and there was a sports show in the morning. There was there was an hour program in the morning called calendar. And I would either do an interview. or or just a sports story off the top of my head, and it would get played on the radio station. And and that was that was what I did for the radio stations far as accommodations were concerned. was through a grant able to get readers. to help me go over material. That was not take all the books. Books that I went to college for that time were taped ahead of time national broil dress and they had some of the most horrible readers in the world. They were just awful, but know they read the books and. You know I was able to use that. And that was based I. Remember once. I I. Forgot what the class was I took a Braille writer. In the classroom. And I started taking notes in the teacher. Said you know what what are you doing? Well. I'm taking notes you. We did this all the time in school and there were maybe ten of us in a class used you. You can't do that here. You just can't. So. I had to meet with room with classmates later and get notes. And that was basically about it. So that was it as far as accommodations concern I I was the only. Student. That was visually impaired without site in the school. which was rather small there were only at. Twenty twenty five hundred students in the school saw. It wasn't exactly huge And You know it was. It was just a great experience. being able to be on the air and being able to I was I was friendly at the time with very coleman. We used to play ball for the Yankees and was one of their broadcasts so when the Yankees came to Boston. he arranged for me not only to interview him. But Out there manager and Frank Messer one of the other announcers. And one of our one of our instructors. At, the school was also an engineer. W WHY? Jerry Coleman, wasn't he? The same Jerry Coleman, who did a section of calling all sports back in one, thousand, nine, hundred eighty. I. Don't ever remember him doing calling all sports. He did a am was on these days. Not Not. I'm busy radio. Might have been another radio station. I remember listening to Jerry Coleman if I remember he correct duck is there. This is a jerk. Oh, to play for the Yankees right right? And then he went to manage for the San. Diego padres or something service. Manage the padres for a year, but spent most of his time. As our principal broadcast? That's what it was right so that would be Gerry Cole because I was in Boston at that time. I remember that jury Cullman Bob and that's funny because I don't but that that doesn't mean anything. But My my instructor at Graham who happened to be an engineered CBS radio? happened to mention the fact that when the Yankees whenever the Yankees were in town for zoo had a show on CBS radio. At the time. A five minutes show every night Monday through Saturday called. It's sports time. And so when he mentioned that he was resume, does engineer. I mean for whatever reason I just love Zuno I. Just thought he was great. And so I asked him if he would arrange. For the possibility of my being able to interview pseudo, And he did. He gave me a CBS tape recorder. He picked me up in front of the school dormitory. I was in at the time. We went to Fenway Park. I sat down with Brazil and talk to them for over half an hour. And The next day I play the interview for for wall. Dick Walsh was his name, and after the interview was over, he shook my hand and he said Kid. You keep interviewing like that and you're GONNA go places. So, that was one of my Great College I. It's funny because. There were a lot of people imitative. You who didn't think I was GONNA make it in broadcasting. Not, even my vocation. -CATIONAL Rehab Counselor sought I was GonNa. Make getting broadcasting and I can remember sitting in Fenway Park, interviewing pseudo and holding a microphone, thinking boy, if those people could only see me right now. And it was it was. It was one of the great sales. I had an and you. Don't forget the chance to interview. Somebody who's one your heroes. Pseudo was one of them and. It was one of my best experiences in college. So you, graduate graduated from Your Scholars Program and you talked about going to Boston partly vacation at partly a to find a job talk about that. How did you get your first job? Or how did that work? Well again we got together with. Dick Walsh who was the same Dick Walsh for arrange for my interview with pseudo. and. He arranged for us to see Milton. Graham was the president of Graham Junior College at the time. And it so happened that a gentleman named Lamont Thompson. was on the board of Trustees Graham, but he was also a vice president of broadcasting at WBZ radio. So Graham called him. And arranged for me to go meet him and talk to him. And I did must attack for a good half hour. And he said. Is there anybody before you leave? Is there anybody you'd like to me and I said Yeah. I'd love to meet Guy. Minoa who, at that time was hosting, calling all sports? That started in July of one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty nine. And so I met a Guy Manila who could not have been nicer on nicer man. You could not have found in your life. then. They took me across the hall and I met. Bill shoot was the program director I was in his office when he picked up the phone and call Dick Walsh at graeme. College and he talked to him for about half an hour and he put down the phone. He said Penny. If you can do half the things, the Dick Wells says you can. Be Ready to hire you which truck about eighteen months, but in February of Nineteen seventy-one I started working at at Wbz and lasted there for fourteen years. So talk about what? You got hired. What did you start doing? Nineteen, seventy one I started working for a character named Larry Glick. He wasn't character who is a character and he was one of these. It was one of these shows wear. Larry would make phone calls at two or three o'clock in the morning. And at that time he used I. mean you hear the call goes through? You'd hear him. Get the operate around the phone or he dialed a number of somebody that they the. A listener had given him and you know they pick up the phone and now. Hi, this is Larry. Glick we're on the air now on radio station WBZ. What happened was he calls somebody? I don't know the person was in. I think. And woke him up at two or three o'clock in the morning. And the gentleman. Was, not thrilled at picking up the phone and finding out he was meeting on the air. So he threatened to sue busy radio for invasion of privacy. And that's when they decided that. Larry Glick needed produce. I had come along and been interviewed by Schubert. And so they decided that I was the right person for the job, so I started working in hundred seventy one for Larry. Lick a gentleman that I worked for for about seven or eight years. So, what? What did the producer do that then? Out Larry had never had calls set up ahead of time. But that was partly my job, and also to make calls during the show. If Larry decided you know what let's all so and so there's a story here that he has a guerilla for. You know. Let's call him up. Well. I had to call them ahead of time. Before. They went on the air and say look this. Is WBZ NEWSRADIO IN BOSTON? Calling I I know it's the middle of the night, but we just found this story about you and our talk. Show host named Larry. Glick would like to talk to you for a few minutes on the air. So. Larry couldn't make those. Calls anymore, so that's what I did plus setup stuff in advance that we would find clippings for, or we developed actually a rather strong relationship with the national enquirer. Larry used to read it every night on the year. He go through the paper and. If, you found something that he liked he'd read it on the air, and he always gave credit to the national enquirer, so they in turn. If we found something that we liked, we could call them and say look you know there's the story about showing so can you get in touch with them and I would make the calls a headed time. And set it up so Larry. Go on the air at midnight and. l., let's say at one o'clock tonight. We're going to talk to so-and-so. In fact I can remember like it was yesterday the first person they ever called her that I. Ever Call was as a celebrity was Duncan Renaldo. WHO PLAYED THE CISCO? Kid On television? Somebody had written glick letter with his phone number. And we'd call them and. I can also remember for the first couple of days I was there I was there in the daytime, just getting the flavor of the radio station. And I remember super introduced me to a guy named Gil Santos. and. Santos said to me. Says you can get a hold of anybody he said. Is that true and of course? I took a big Gulp and said well I'm I'm really not sure, so he said well. Can you find Angelo Dundee? who was of course, AXING TRAIN? To write for Mohammed Ali. So is well I'll give it a try. And I sat there for a few minutes and thought well. I guess the best places to try. Madison Square Garden so I did, and they gave me the number of some gymnasium. And I called there and LO and behold Mohammed. Angelo Dundee was there and I got him into Gil Santos and he was the first he was the first contact I ever made I was stationed. So those are some of the early things that I started doing at Wbz Gil Santos, was born and raised in my city new Bedford Massachusetts. He was he was a wonderful guy and I can't tell you. I think at the time and the years that I spent there. was, it was as somebody once said in a book about the Yankees it was a great time to be alive in a great time to be at wbz because WBZ had gone just gone talk after being music for many many years. In fact, the the first radio announcer on BBC radio, who did the Boston bruins was a gentleman named Fred Kucic? Yes, who just happened to be my instructor it? It, Graham Junior College. They had a sports class. On Tuesday I hated it because it was on Tuesday morning at eight, o'clock in the morning was the only class I had like two in the afternoon, but I got up every Tuesday at eight o'clock in the morning. and. I'll tell you something else. I asked him for an opinion of the interview that I did with resute Oh. And he took the tape and listened to it the next week when we came back. He told the class about the interview and he played it for them, and he said now I want you all to write a paper on residuals career based on this interview. I get excused from writing the paper. So. How'd you? How'd you switch from from Glick to sports? Well Larry started working eight to midnight. And I had gone to the program. Director said Look I. I've been doing it for six seven years I. You know if possible, I don't WanNa. Do it anymore. You know I mean I I wanNA start living a real life. So then they decided okay. We'll haggard come in at noon. Book guests for the other talk shows and produce calling all sports from six to eight o'clock. With, Bob Low bell, and Upton Bill. So, that's how I got into starting to work in and get involved in sports and Larry used to interviews once in a while with sportspeople I remember when Yogi Berra got elected to the hall of fame. Larry decided. He wanted to interview. Yogi so I mean he was very easy to find. We knew lived at Montclair New Jersey. And it's funny. There was another time when Larry wanted to. He wanted to interview Jimmy Pearsall. who used to play for the Red Sox in who did some broadcasting in Oakland in Chicago? And so because somehow Larry found out that. Personal to listen to Larry's broadcasts. And Harem talk about hypnosis. So. I got parasol on everything and told him about Larry Glick and personal sentiment. Is Not that gets here and talks about hypnosis all the time. Yeah, that's him. So. It's okay I'll talk to him so before the interview. Larry said Hey. You write me out some questions. To, ask me personally said I don't know anything about him. Yeah, okay, Larry, so I did. And partway through the interviewer, Pearsall said Clicky said Hey. Excuse me. He said who were out all these questions. You don't know anything about sports. And, so you know Larry told him. And everything, but in Pearsall was great, he really was so every once in a while Larry would. Even if you don Dunphy one night as a matter of fact and the boxing announcer. And Dumping and I became friends because of that. As a matter of fact, I got him to play in a golf tournament up in Maine. And to play a the Joe. Lazaro Lived in Waltham, had at blind golfers tournament every year and I got Don. Dunphy to play in it. So you know Larry helped me make a lot of contacts. So? You were producing all this stuff when you go on year. I started getting on the air one night. When Larry Glick over slept Oh. He had gone dinner. And as he put, it had a couple too many glasses of wine. He went on to take a nap and didn't wake up until one o'clock in the morning. And of course obviously Jerry Williams. who was on for me to midnight didn't feel like hanging around. So he got up and left and I was. I was the only one left, so they? They put me on the air and then one night. They decided that I should audition to fill in for Larry Glick when he went on vacation. So I went on the air one night for an hour, and and they agreed that I did a pretty good job. And it's funny I found out. That night that you have to be yourself. You can't be something you're not I used to give you know when when I did it for that hour I. I did a lot of the things that they're elected. I used to I. Give a round of applause. To first time callers when somebody would call in I would say let me check. because. That's Larryelder to send you shoot April off. Did you shoot people off the air? That I did want to. That's another Larry Specialty. That's another Larry Specialty and that used to be funny because people would call up and they'd say Larry. Would you shoot me off the air? Learn? No, no I I, can't just oh, please Larry. I got to shoot me off the area. Okay, what would you look at your radio place? And then he would plan recording a couple of gunshots and. you know that that was? That was interesting. I mean Larry it was a lot of fun. He made me into. A PERSONALITY! The one thing about Larry. I did not like. Was He would never. Re, he was like Larry King. He would never read a book ahead of time. The Foreword Interview. But I shamed him into doing it once. I I woke up one morning about ten thirty eleven o'clock. In the that time Pat Whitley. used to have a show on. Either it was either w Amex might have been W I t s by that time. But he was interviewing. This guy who wrote a book called Ghost flights. Four zero one. And it was a book about an airliner that crashed. In the everglades in Miami. And supposedly other other eastern airliners were haunted by the ghosts of the captain and the CO pilot. So I heard that interview and I said Oh man that's that's right up alley. So I found out who the publisher was I called the publisher he got me in touch with the gentleman who had done. The interview named John Floor. So I talked to fuller one day off the air and he said now. Not One of these guys that's going to read the Book Jacket Lender the Synopsis On the Book Jacket, and then do the interview. Izzy and I said Oh no I. Don't worry. He's GonNa. Read that book from cover to cover. So I gave. Copy of the Pumpkin I said Larry. You've gotta do your fair, so you have got to read this book and he said why. I said because I told this guy that you were going to read the book. which is one of the reasons why he agreed to do the interview? Any any read it, and after the interview is set to learn that there wasn't that a lot easier than trying to do an interview without reading the book, and he said Yeah as a matter of fact was. So that to my knowledge is the only book that ever read I was GonNa ask if he had read more books after that one. I'll if you did. He if he did he did it when I wasn't there anymore. And But but he was very funny. He was unique he was he was a great talent. and everybody loved him and there wasn't will be only one Larry Glick. Yes, so tell me about you. went off your path, which is awesome as a great path? You Veer, too, but talk about being yourself. You said you had a lawyer to be yourself to be. Thank I just learned that. You know what works for Larry Glick. Just it didn't make me feel comfortable doing that. So I just decided. You know just decided to be myself and so I just I just did I mean i. if somebody told me they were a first time caller, I will say hello and welcome to Wbz I didn't sit there and give them a round of applause or anything like that. So that's what I meant by by being yourself you can't. You can't imitate somebody else. So you are. You're substituting for this. Glick Dude, who had remember I. Don't think I remember ever him actually. I was in new. York in other at the time, so and you presumably went to sports how that happened? Well, I didn't I didn't do a sports. Talk Show time. Thing. But I the first time I ever did it. Was At one time. VISI use to have calling all sports on Saturdays from eight to midnight. And in August of nineteen. one morning or sports director, a lady named Pat. Rando called me at eleven o'clock in the morning woke me up. and Said Hey We don't have anybody to do conal sports on Saturday night Can you do it? You mean go on the air. She, said Yeah. And I said Yeah I guess so. Of course I got the busy survey hours ahead of time. And met with whoever might. was, and of course got all the scores and everything written down. I was nervous. Scared my entire life as man if I blow this back to Rochester. and Luckily I got through. It one of my one of my instructors. from Graham College who was in Syracuse actually who was the dean of communications at Syracuse University I don't know how he found out that I was going to be on the air because I didn't call him. Sent me a telegram. Telling me what a great job at was, and what a great trailer was for somebody who went to gram junior college to be able to be on BBC radio at that time and I found out later. Because one of the people that we had on the air to help, break the ice as it were was Gil Santos goes with the Patriots who are playing an exhibition game that weekend in Buffalo so we could get on the air. I interviewed him for half an hour. And I found out later he went to our program director, and said you know what that kid has just formed to be on the air. And, so then when Larry. Liquid, take off, or they needed somebody to do calling all sports Or Whatever I was I was elected. So. That's how I got into doing some sports shows. On NBC radio, can I WANNA. Get into your own show because I know you had a show later on, but before I do, there's another name that I want to run by you. One of my favorites who used to do calling all sports one of the most knowledgeable, my opinion, he knew pretty much all the players on all the teams of all the sports, and he was just very very good like that and I'm talking about a gentleman named Ken Beatrice. Yes can vary. Trish used to be on the air on weekends. And then eventually he was on the air, and I can't remember the whole sequence of events. I believe is on the air during the week for awhile from ten to midnight. after Jerry Williams got let go, which was one of the biggest stakes easier radio ever made. Guy Manila started doing the program. which was called the world of Guy Manila. Any was on from six to ten in. Can Beer truce was on from ten to midnight? he was originally from Washington and I think went back there. I heard. And I don't know you know whatever happened to him after that, but yeah, he was very knowledgeable. He football was is. I think he was even a scout at one. One time. But football was his forte, but yeah, he was very good. He knew everything I remember when I used to go back to Perkins every Sunday afternoon. Because you know how it is your at Batavia, you know how it goes, and you go back on a Sunday afternoon, and and just nothing really going on except hanging around so I used to put on the radio around six o'clock. Hour on Sunday afternoons that Nineteen, seventy, six and nineteen, seventy seven. and. There were two programs at the time I. Think it can did. For the first hour he did, a show called the goal line. And then after that he did calling all sports. He up. I mean I remember him I didn't I didn't have that much contact with him I didn't produce for him or anything else I knew who he was I would say hello to him. when you know when he when I saw him, and that was basically about it I really really didn't. Excuse me I really didn't have much to do with him personally. Or anything like that, but one gentleman that I did get to know. And work with was Dick Stockton. Former red, sox broadcasts on Channel Thirty Eight But. He also used to work at WBZ. He worked in Pittsburgh. And came to busy TV. And he used to record commentaries That were aired in the morning. On on Gil Santos sports programs. He had a commentary in the Morning Guy Manila had a commentary in the afternoon. Singer allowed different yeezy back than they are today. And I became from very friendly was Dick as a matter of fact, I used to sit in the Br- in the. Studio when he would record his commentaries in case, I was asleep and missed them in the morning. So for while he. Did call in all sports on Sunday nights and he wanted me to produce the program. And of course, the first weekend that I produce the show. Nothing much happened except a gym name got hurt in for the year. And I remember. I was able to track down and get a gentleman named Sam Deluca. Was a color man for the New York giants. And I don't know how I did it. But somehow I got Joe Namus doctor to come on the air that same night and be interviewed by Stockton. And, of course, Stockton was thrilled because we're scooping everybody in the city. By getting this guy on the air so. I happened to be lucky and be involved in the middle. All kinds of stuff at that radio station there was nothing like a story breaking and being involved in like that one. Show I got to know. A So I got to know Dick Rather well. You know and he became a great success Z.. He He dropped calling all sports because. He was doing football as well and he just didn't feel that could devote enough time to and do a good job, so he left that and Then of course went to seem sm did a lot of staffers CBS, and as you said want broadcast. Did, the Boston Red Sox, and of course was broadcasting when Fisk. Hit that for matic home run in the. Nineteen seventy five world series and Always been noted for that, but any any work was Tommy, Heinsohn on broadcast. Ones CBS had the rights to them. And he he was a good guy. Use a nice man i. think he's now retired. God knows where, but I think he's retired somewhere and. Whatever is doing and I wish him love well added because he deserved. So you had your own show on weekends effect I remember. Wasn't around the early eighties I believe. Saturday later Sunday night. I believe it was. Started on on Saturday nights. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, nine. We had a great program director at the time named Dave Martin no relation to the announcer who broadcast words SEIS games through a matter of fact. But he was the program director and the Saturday night spot opened up, and he said he called me into his office and he said if you want it, it's yours and of course. Who could say no to being on the air on BBC radio plus a little extra money? And I had a ball. They let me do whatever I wanted. I get interview, whomever I wanted. is there are a lot of people that don't like the tape stuff ahead of time. But I didn't subscribe to that theory because number one. There are a lot of people that would come through the city that I wouldn't be able to meet in person on a Saturday night. 'cause they'd be all done with a tour. So when somebody like a done Sherry? was coming. Into Boston to promote his book. I would I would make arrangements for him to commence sat down for an hour and tape the interview in air on Saturday nights and I. Did that a lot with a lot of people? In fact I've got a bunch of tapes that one of these days I'm GonNa sit down and go through because they're all me and I'm Kinda curious to see what I did. Because I remember everything but being able to do that. Show was it was a great thrill and I always enjoyed. A you know. The the possibility number one is turn on a microphone. And in being allowed in people's homes was one of the greatest thrills in the world. And it doesn't matter what radio station Iran just the thrill of turning on the Mike and Being able to do that. Is something that. I can't really describe except. Wow, you know and and. Being able to do that and and meet people like Dan. Cherry Era Connie Francis are almost anybody. Frank Blair who was the newsman for a long time in the today show people people of this nature You don't forget stuff like that and and Beasley radio was a hotbed that time. Because of its fifty thousand watts. And you just never knew who was going to be in the station. Because busy like channel five and lake. Channel seven also had a talk show. Called people talking. And so when you would come in the station, sometimes, you never knew I. Mean I I met Ben Big Ben Cartwright from the Ponderosa one day on Green. On interview with me that I eventually put on the air, you just never knew who was going to be a vincent. Price's their Red Skelton was there why he Ford was there. You just never knew who would pop in and who would show up? So, that was one of the interesting things about working those hours because. you know like I said you just never knew who was going to show up. I can remember. Being in the station. somebody came over and told me that Artan clutter happily over Amisi TV. Now in nineteen, seventy-one Radio celebrated its fiftieth anniversary on the air. With Jerry Williams and for four hours a night five nights a week. We had anybody and everybody we could find in radio. And one of the people that we found was art linkletter. So when I found out he was. In busy TV I went over and introduced myself, and he remembered me and remembered the interview and I said look. Have you got a few minutes to come over to BBC radio? and. He said to me well. If we haven't got time will make time. So, he just got up and walked out of these TV came over to abuse the radio. Somebody told me later. They didn't know who looked more happy. linkletter me. So you just never knew what was going to happen. So I want to turn a quick corner. You are of course blind, and some curious about combinations, and how you? You adjusted to do things some things that. People might think you can't do. Well. One of the one of the things that I was able to get done. Boy I wish we had the Internet back then because men. That would have been a great help, but if I knew enough in advance that I was going to interview somebody. I would send the book home to my dad and say you know. Read this book for me. And he would read it on cassette. Send it up to Boston and I would listen to the book and do the interview There were other times when. I couldn't do that and I would call the publicist and I would never mentioned the fact that I couldn't see I just I. Was Not important at least to me, it wasn't And I would I. would say to look. Know, I'm interviewing. This guy just got. There's no way I'm going to be able to read this book if you were going to interview so and so. What do you are? The highlights of this book. And they would tell me and I would use that and do that for interviews and. That was really the only only accommodation that. You know they had to make. If I made a mistake in a programming, something got on the Air I would hear about it just like any other producer. I was treated just like every other producers. It was their. Blindness was never brought up lying. This was never an. Tell me about the technology used. Technology. Tapering quarter and a Braille writer, okay? Got It. Cool that was that, was it? So I'm sorry, keep going! No I? I you know you gotta remember when this was. This was forty years ago. Okay Braille, the Braille and speaks did not exist for a long time. You didn't have the computer You had a telephone and how you got the information. was was up to you and what you did with it was. Was You Busy, brought bought me a new Braille writer when my old one crashed. And You know they would? They would spend money Vibrio paper and that was about it. I was I was left to fend for myself. Everybody had a job to do. And they did it and I have my job to do, and I did it. That's the way it was so. When did you leave WBZ MID to late eighties? I left easy in November of nineteen eighty five as a matter of fact Carl sues and I both busy on the exact same day. he's had the morning show for years and. Years and years. People that said that he did Karl on the air, but they couldn't get rid of him because his ratings were so good. I can still remember them gloating over a headline in the Boston Globe one day. That said the Sousse to. The morning and that's when he was always ahead was just cain. WHO WAS W? H D H, why was their hatred for us. Just just didn't like the way he sounded on the air saw. When he was horrible though. But he was durable and he did his job. And he and he was number one in the ratings. He was number one in the ratings. He was one of the nicest people in the World Carlos adorable High used to have to wait Carl up every morning. When I got too busy I had found out that Larry used to call him on the air in. Wake him up. But when I got the busy glimpse at Hey, from now on this is your job so every day when I would call Carl, you'd sound like he was GonNa die when he picked up the phone, because I would always call about four fifteen, four twenty in the morning, and get us Oh, and of course I would always somber. Hi, Carl Horia. Can You do? How are things behind the? Band Carl. Just. On all this stuff and he would drive glick crazy because car would come in like at this exaggeration, he'd get off the air at five. Thirty Carl would commit at five twenty nine Q. Up for record with his with his jacket still on and sound like he had been there for hours. In you. Larry USA drive. Glick nuts because he could never do that, so must've been so. Carl in my opinion was a hard habit to break. Because as you said people don't like the way. He sounded on the air, but his ratings were good. That means it didn't matter how people felt. Exactly. What happened eventually, was they? They wanted. Management became very cruel later on as as time went by. And some of the people that helped build that radio station into talk station, and into what it was worn. Thera later on, and people weren't treated as well. They took off the morning show. and. They wanted him to quit, but they couldn't fire him. So they put them on the air at night it midnight. and wanted wanted him to do the show, and he did it for a while, and finally he did what they hoped he would do. He said I can't do this anymore I'm. I'm old enough? I'm going to retire and that's exactly what he did. And that Friday November I. Was Carl's last day and it was my last day. What had happened was. W E I had started doing a program call radio classics from eight to ten o'clock at night. and. They didn't have a regular host. They would get again whoever they could find to do it. Some people within the radio station They even got different. Neil city councillor to do it. One night and a friend of mine who I used to work with the BBC radio called me one day and said Hey, there's a story on the wire that says busy radio is looking. I mean ee. I radio was looking for a permanent host to host radio classics. It turned out that I knew the program director. At W. E. I used to work at busy FM at the time. So I called them, and we had dinner one night at the stockyard in Brighton as a matter of fact. And I found out later. That it came down to myself and or or Nathan. And they picked me so i. was offered the job I took. I went to be easy radio. Hardest thing I ever one of the hardest things I ever did. was was to leave busy radio after being there for fourteen years. But I did it. The people he I could not have been nicer. got to work regular. you know and go home at night. And it was, it was an plus be on the air every day except for Monday night football. Even we did that. They would let me take a show forty five minutes long, but still tape it and get paid for it and at one point. Through the magic of tape I was on the air seven nights a week. I used to sit home on Saturday and Sunday nights and listened to myself on the air. There was kind of a kick. I gotTa tell you. But That's how good he was. And they couldn't treat me better. We have only a few minutes candidate. I WANNA get your assessment on. The status of WBZ now as you know I'm not sure if Peter knows, but I heart WBZ and I always tell people who care to bring it up with me. That, why is iheart buying up all of these radio stations? Only to lay people off. What the heck is their goal? I'd I really don't understand it? I wish that IHEART was drummed out of the business. Somehow I knew. Because of what happened with friends of mine, other radio stations. What was going to happen when when I heard what busy somehow they didn't buy these e I. Don't know what they did. They got it in some kind of trade. I don't know the INS and outs of it. But I do know what's happened since they've taken it over. don't even I. don't even listen to be easy anymore. I of course I used to listen and beyond with Morgan White, junior. also. You are also on with Steve Lavallee. Yes, but not as often as I was were Morgan. And! Morgan and I would pick a topic maybe a few days ahead of time. And you know we would discuss it on the air like like. When busy was GONNA? Leave soldiers field road. He wanted me to come on the air and talk about memories that I had of being BC and people that we had met, and all that kind of thing which I did, or we would pick a personality that I had interviewed or or or a book that might have been written about. Say Ed Sullivan or have people talk about their favorite newscaster other favorite sportscaster. And we did it. And I don't know? Whether if Morgan, Larrabee be back on the air again. They told him that when this whole virus things over. He would be back, but I. know either way I heard operates I. I, have my doubts I My favorite time on wbz is from eight to midnight Monday through Friday. I enjoy Dan Rae and I know the end. I know Dan Rae. Fact! He is there and one of the reasons he is still. There is because he makes money. And if he didn't make money. He wouldn't be there but the way they treat. People are Rod. Fritz was supposed to negotiate a new contract. They call them on Thursday afternoon and said you know you're done goodbye. DEB lawler who had been there for thirty five years same thing you're done. By. Chance. It happens a lot in radio KEN. Even at my local radio station, we had a man on a named Pete Braley for many many years. All of a sudden boom he was no longer the morning host and nobody was allowed to ask questions that happens suddenly I. think it was contractual, but it happens almost the same way that you're describing. My left WBZ. They would not let me go on the air and do a final program. The only thing they did was let me take. Something ran the next night. Because Norm Nathan was my replacement. If easy radio, so I take I take the little twenty or thirty second blurbs something like well. I've got good news and bad news. The bad news is I'm leaving WBZ radio. The good news is you can't be in better hands. 'cause norm. Nathan will not be doing the program. And they played it his night as night on the air. And now that's the only thing that I got to do at these e e e, I was different. They let me do a final program. And say goodbye to the audience and which busy never did. And I'll always always disliked easy for that. I had some of the greatest moments of my life. Easy I met people that you dream about when I was there. But It was very sad that they let me do that When I left easy. The executive producer took me to lunch at the ground. That was my goodbye party. They gave me a sunny radio with a pair of headphones for going. We, are out of time. It was a fast our. But I really WanNa thank you for sharing your wisdom and your history with all of us here on in perspective. And We may want you back sometime. We really like having you on. You tell a lot of great stories and bring back a lot of good memories. Yeah, I agree thanks for meeting you for getting a chance to meet you for the first time and. It was a pleasure to meet you I. Hope You do a lot of the state of Missouri and. It was a lot of fun and I. Hope I'm sure we've been find. We haven't even begun to touch the surface There are so many things in so many people to talk about. Besides Gil Santos. There's Gary last year. Bob Wilson there's Johnny most. Of the sulfur, but We will have you back again. Can thanks once again? Thanks can. I appreciate it. Take Care Gentlemen. Tonight night now. Okay. We're looking good here, guys! And as usual I didn't show and I listen to the, and then I will definitely. Listening I listen to all of them at some level, but I used to love. Ken Mayor on busy I, was a kid and. You know you'd have the radio on the Abedin. All advocate that the the airplanes and Making all the way through a show, but Definitely put him on most weeks and. I never knew he was blind I guess. He said he was betrayed, whatever reason? That didn't dawn on me until later when I was at first known for few. Blind. Talk, show hosts that I recall listening to him on public radio. or Options Yeah Yeah. Yup. And I was a good choice. Yeah. Definitely he's he'll always be a good guest. I gotTA. Tell you that. Any doubt about that he's. He's made for a show like this. Bobby really is. Now that the first time we had them, yes, okay would. Well and he's willing to come back and man. If he talks about those people and Peter, you may may not know those are the actually know some of them those are guys that I knew a kid you know, and then in high school, and of course Gary Lapierre's. Things. He was always famous for always doing the the no slough announcements, and so you'd be on a snowy day. You'd be listening. We had the school. Superintendent wouldn't always close out of the towns around did. and. It was kind of a rare day when we have a snow day. Now I was. Well if we bring it back with, remember they. Not a local show off to find a way to broaden his stories, but they're. They're good stories and I don't know if we can broaden his stories. I mean because. He was just. Oh you have to do say things like He. was was. Was this so people don't. Here's the thing, Visi. Thirty eight states. That's a good point. That's also true Yep of course. Van has an incredible with a a signal I mean. Strengthening. Lucky spot on the dial. Two I think that's part of the reason. You might be able to pick them up eater not here. Not here. At night maybe. I'll try. Skips it night, but not during the day nothing. Yeah, anyway, all you have to make sure that people know who these people are. ERLA. Whoever you know and Johnny most was whoever you know so. That's a good point. We should make sure that bobby that you say a few words about each of these guys. If Ken. Doesn't you know and Say them before getting the show. Hey, remember, this is a national thing it just. Who these people were. We've reached out telling stories. Of sure he'll do it. Yeah, that's a good point of doing that. Because a lot of the sports figures everybody knows everybody knows zoo. And all them guys, everybody well remember I, do but people under forty. Don't so a well. That's a fair point to assure. Always say around. Phil Phil Rizzuto was this. Player for the Yankees was this. Easy announcer for the Yankees as well. You know that's all you say. The mighty who he is, that's all. It's not a big deal it to make sure we were. Away. Here's a note I'm Phil Rizzuto. They used them in a rock and roll. Tune back in the seventies. Yup Yup Nike. Except in that case, he's talking about two different kinds of blocking about. Paradise by the Dashboard. The One Now. They dubbed. Version, but they dubbed him on another version. Kaokoland base. That was. Oh. Yeah, almost dare try and pick them off now. Score and he was talking about Oh. Yeah, we'll see but that that was going to say about it I mean.

I feel like that Song didn't get at the foot. Should've gotten which should have gotten a US. Pop is one of my in the world right. That's came out. What eighty seven suns right? That was really when I entered my coming of age time for music. There's something about something about this song. There's something about this song that it's like this is when the eighties got serious playing around. We weren't doing fucking like you weren't doing Koch Goo Goo winning more that bullshit prime afterwards but yelling. No more Cindy lauper nonsense. We're doing it serious now and we're doing a forty two serious mark king. Oh Wow shit. He looks like the Alien Bounty Hunter. X. File it looks like a felled available from the German. Ss Yeah but instead he plays dance. Pop level forty two was a fascist. Dance pop fascist. Dance pop they need this fascist groove thing. They don't they. Don't not need it right trying to get stuff over here man trying to get himself together answering a bit of a night last night. A Little Li you can hear my voice we were at we were at the pub. We were the voice thing came from the patroon is not the pub I got. I got overexcited. Yelling socks that this one guy. Well the best part was every time somebody went to go for a free throw in our realm. Our area there about the shoot with yell sucks and then they go and it happened twice in a row for me. It was great. It was so good really good and yes I am. I'm having trouble up today. And that's hurting. There's your throat hurts. My throat does hurt. Would you like allows no?

It's back to people ask for it so you're no good but yet voice Voice is hurting. The I is the head was hurting earlier. It's all right now. I just had to have a down day just went out. How was a brunch boy? Oh brunch I went to a Cuban place in Troy that took me an hour and change to get my food. I know where you went. Yeah it was good. It was yes it was a good for Albany. Not the best Cuban ever had decor looks like it was done by Don Henley. Actually I love the I. The Look of the place is phenomenal. It just looks like your grandmother. Cooks was right from nineteen ninety-seven the California like everything's like they have like brass like polished brass like our chairs. Some places I think now though like the light fixtures and the art on the walls of confusing art on the Wall Street art and plus. It's kind of an industrial district. Yeah okay we're talking about. There's a spot next store that used to have shows longtime ago then the actual people who own the business imagine that got mad because people are sitting around their belts understood. Yes so yeah did that and I just couldn't really do much else today now known just I Lazy Find Lazy Day well Andrew. I'm really glad that you were able to bring global for to to to the forefront. Hopefully people listen to level forty two so last night we were watching. The poor turns on is zoomed in on a guy who looked like somebody who's very bad at basketball tall white dorky dude. His name was number twenty three. How dare he take Jordan's number first of all second who's he think? He is second of all every time he came by. Realm? Id Al Twenty three. And I think you heard me. He's doing pretty bad and the lucking during the shit. Stop this poor team. That Lou odd either flew drove from from Texas to complain Albany on a cold night in from Texas because I heard two men in the bathroom talking about them coming from Pennsylvania. But I don't usually take the word of men. I mean bathrooms as Gospel. So you're you're correct was a trip because it reminded me of like old. Ymca bathrooms there was no like you know when you go to. I mean this is from the men in the audience. Like all of you. The men in the audience. Where you gotTa Piss were the urinal the pissed off the urinal and there have a little partition. So people can't look at your deck. This place didn't partition. No you're just you're out so you had to do like the flame hold deck and then you're like holy he really like a convert your elbows. I really like blocking like let it fly. Man It's alright. Someone wants to meet gays. It's okay I mean what about what better place to meet gays than other very low broken bottom rung of professional sports. The very low local basketball game can't fill a gymnasium. Bayfield it it was a great game. It was a great game the elephant in the room shore with the Albany Petruno so yeah so yesterday I forget who handed us the paper. Sorry I don't remember who it was. But there's an ad for an Albany protrudes podcasts. Alds over tilmant drive. I'll burn the fucking place down. I just WANNA take a bigger ad next to it. I think it'd be really fun. It's very odd to me. A little bit of Chicanery. I don't know what that is. I listened to five minutes of one episode and I I am not friends obviously very strange. So what are they like the? There's not a lot to go on again. Listen FOR FIVE MINUTES. I was not. I was not in response to state. I don't know sponsors. Have that in common with dollar coming from Patriot. I'm suing that's it. I want that dollar. That's true so if you're confused don't recommend over time Dr. Anybody recommend overnight dry so we've got a Beasley. We've got a rumble with these guys. Be Interesting intellectual property theft. I'm going to have our lawyers tangle we should I bet we could Mostra better lawyers than they have. Okay we have a lawyer listening to US right we do. We must if you are a lawyer and you're listening right in and just say I'm a lawyer because I'm just I just and we must have a doctor to right. We have a doctor and I know I know for a fact lawyer. We do okay so you know all right. That's sick. Yes from the Mid West. But he's always quick to write in cool and I'm sure we have some other people's who plus people who were familiar with intellectual property triple in the entertainment Biz. I'm sure you can lend us a hand to strike down this inferior podcast. Who People Announ doubtedly become confused? You know what I don't understand about living in a place like this. There's a lot I don't understand this a lot but it's a very small town and if you have any interest whatsoever it's an even smaller town lake. Oh just about nothing. Then you know. It's a small town but if you like fucking guitar based music or you like I don't know coffee culture or chant. Your universe get so much smaller and you just run into the same twenty two people everywhere so with that being said how could we possibly ever sue a person in Albany and not have them come back and break our window? Well it's so small it's just doesn't make any sense. The new sue them harder aghast town where you can still settle things with with a push fight. I I do love. That is actually one of the things I love I. So there's there's a man who apparently walks up and down. There's there's one main drag in Albany I android. There's one there's actually drag I A and there's this one guy who walks up and down at like just being loony people actual menace. Yeah he he he seems like he's the kind of person that we'd never had in the past because people just surround you with rocks and throw them at you until you stop moving. The that was that was just how people handle these problems now. I guess this guy has a beef with nick. I don't know I think it's kind of funny. He's said that he wrote pass on a bike and just kicked him down really fund. Which is funny Nick Nick Ticket? Very as you should've I mean I'm glad he took it very seriously. Well he went and he got a restraining order on this guy. I guess so. He last night. This guy comes in and like Harry's on for a minute and he just gets bounced really quickly. Kicks the door a few times and walks away but then twenty minutes later four cops walk in like four six foot eight stormtrooper looking and it's fun as fuck because we are in a Bar. Full of people at the average age in that room was probably thirty three something like that. Who's a young young people to live in money hanging out like a time? That was leak stops as though we're all teenagers at a house party like everyone's healty late. I'm underage drinking thing going on. Yeah so four cups walk eight and the whole place becomes a mortuary we're cubs then a state trooper attitudes stop. We look really slow night in law enforcement but whatever. Nick FILLS OUT THE SHIT. He needs to fill out to let them know the restraining order. But then I was talked him like you know there's GonNa come a point where you're just GonNa have to break this dude's head open then. It's just how you have to solve the next like you. Don't WanNa do that. Well he he is not he is not a fighter and I was trying to convince you now. The guy is the human. Oh you know. Let's see get along stick and you just fucking top one. Go and you're far away. You just you just you put on your shit kickers and kick some shit oh executives house paints you run up on him with Shit. Kickers a has met suit. Just fucking go to town. I'm calling upon. I ain't gonNA W- own you said I'm coming upon you. I AIN'T GONNA won't. That's what he needs to do so I was trying to explain that I don't think he could. I tried to get. I tried to get nick to ask listener and friend of the PODCAST SCOTT J to teach him Brazilian Jujitsu. Because I think that'd be really funny. Jj I would love to watch him get choked out. It could really funny for the PODCAST. Nick Ace out by Royce gracie point was really good video. Still we know a lot of people who've done some interesting stuff. Yeah it's nice to nice to know more ambitious people and but yeah so. That's what I love about Albany's yet you can't just solve things by an breaking somebody's like Isaak it and that's dead now. I was like I had a couple of beers and when do kicking the door I I was like bounces off then. Nichols don't don't told me about the HIV. I don't WanNa do that. Okay no no because I don't like people mess with my friends or my friends. Establishments shocking bounces doodle. I'll put them in the street and is not do it. Sounds like okay Louis and then the cops got him on the going. I missed that part. I don't CARE COPS game. He came in just like Barry Obama said we got him did he. I remember Barry Obama came. I don't remember him say I remember some other guys saying it. No Barry Obama Zarate. Would we got Bin Laden? I was thinking about when we got Saddam Hussein. Yeah he got on the use in office when we got Saddam Hussein but now I think he doesn't But Barry Obama came out and said we got him. Yeah Yeah Okay. I do remember that which is Great. I I wish Ahmad last night and was told I could not who by who you know. Just people you culturally misappropriate. Yes but this is like yeah we down Afghantistan for twenty years man like culture right. Exactly you're going to tell a Chris Kyle. You can't work in radio of Chris. Kyle was here that you wouldn't say to Andrew Exactly Chris Kyle night. That's how I solve everything exactly. I bring up Chris Kyle. We've og must have tax shook Landreau. I thought you looked very sharp. Thank you version. I gotTA wear it every day. So get used to it because it has to become my culture song. I'm going to become the guy that walks around. I'M GONNA walk up I in drag up and down. It's going to be the weird guy and then if it'd been me in a full Shimon. Bdu's and a fucking an assault vest. Barrett fifty caliber take back. Solent ANDREWS GONNA go full Afghani. I'm pretty excited with a with a warn beard and Oakley Sunglass cool I though the the navy seals for all good. They had very bad taste and sunglasses. They had like Sunglass hut choice and sunglasses. They either seals. They can ask for anything they want. So I follow a lot of. I follow a lot of gun. People say weird right on on on both twitter and instagram. I follow a decent amount of them and for the most part we get along pretty okay until one of these guys will post a thing like date night with the wife photo of his kitchen and like his wife cooking like macaroni and cheese with hotdogs in it in the kitchen. Looks like it's It's like a kitchen looks like it was built from Home Depot cast offs or. It's like they got A. They got a flag made of Palate would on their wall and just like I don't even care. What the patriotism I care about your unbelie. You're like hysterical. Lack of fucking aesthetics is so offensive to me. It's unbelievable so that's where I break with with gun internet once it has to become personal post about music hall. Oh yeah the hell are you kidding me? Yeah even people you think you have something. You might just have that in common with them like. That's it that's no is whole paradigm shifts. No Oh these are my people know. It's just you might just have that in common sets that's at I do have to have. I know that it's petty but I do like people who have somewhat of the same taste in music as me and his need that to happen and or it has spawned a lot of interesting conversations. About why on Earth would you like them? I'm talking to a friend. People who I consider pretty close friends. I've said why would you like? Yeah I don't I don't get it and they have a great answer and that's fine because you can like whatever you WanNa do. Whatever you want but I see you and it's not great but who do I know we listened to level forty two featuring mark king. That's great that's That is fascist dance. Pop what I love about. Level Forty two. It's not that they did something about you. But they have toiled for years on the European funk scene who've God Asanga lessons in love which was the prelude to level forty two but before that they had a bunch of other like really wacky funk's white boy funk songs and you get you get away with that in Europe 'cause Fritz predominantly white and you could say. Oh I'M GONNA play funk music and better than anybody can play funk music and they'd be like okay but here you would be thrown away immediately began That happening we fuck. Who'd look of love?

Somebody met US on duty much I appreciate. I saw that it was very good. Music inspired. That was the when you sent me. That last night was when it was time for me to go home and I did not heed that I just kept rocking inferred for far too long. Let's get you into branch than people usually use. Brunches the -pointment yes. Assaf for Brown bottle flu. Which is what you were suffering from so that it help or hinder. No it helped. And I don't know why I should have been way more hungover today but I wasn't. I don't know I didn't really eat anything so like what you didn't eat anything brunch. No today debut last night. I didn't really anything so I was just. I was just going in hollow which is never a good sign explains that explains your level of sobriety. Yeah but I should have been worse off. I I I credit. Only drinking wine only drinking wine. I love everybody's getting into wine. It makes people very Like mom drunk. I've got a point and because I'm drunk you've got it made me I got stupidly. Socratic with people does night. Oh yeah you caught? You got some of that show. That's fun you know. That's my friend he can do no wrong. That's true we just I've seen you do. That's over so it was just like likes socratic Andrew through a big. Let him more or less regrets. You know it's no no time for regrets and you don't know I regret nothing. And they had a wonderful new should be any lennox about that shit speaking of eighties music any. Lennox never regret nothing. Jeff no more. I love us. Welcome broken glass rooms. I forgot about walking on broken glass. I think everybody did. They weren't they tried to make her a thing. Just didn't really take that. She had that did it. And that's like mom like why? Where did it go wrong? Like mom waking up at fifty like Paula Cole. You know we're all the cowboys gone any Lennox like well. Maybe you just discovered a new genre mom waking up at fifty mom awakening music. Well have all the cab all. I can't believe I've married Clark. Twenty and now I am thirty years of gone by and have fulfilled none of my personal goals beside having children Monday now that I have annoying teenage children. I'm not even sure that that was my goal. Just great sometimes I think terrible thoughts. Yeah Carson architect. But he got to do his thing. When do I get to do mine? The answer is Never. You never said that you blew it and you blew your life yet. One Life You fucking blew it. No I was thinking about that a lot. I recently withdrew and came. We came off of and withdrew from xanax. Talked about this. I didn't WanNa talk about it because I didn't know how to go and I want to feel like an idiot crawling back to my doctor and my hands and knees saying please. I'm on my hands and knees dog. Begging you need xanax pills but I guess you get into it right. Yeah Fuck. That's fine The past month or so. I have always talked about rock and roll. Doctor my doctor. My former doctor who I got I talked about getting dumped by my therapist. Those running it was rocking. I see okay and the thing. Is that Ronald Doctors. The two double edged sword for sure. And when you see I had my insurance at switched and I said well you don't take my insurance but can I still see you kind of talked about this. We talked about. We talked about losing rock and roll docked. Yeah this is the buildup where it's like. You can't see she did this thing. Where not only would she not see me but she would not prescribe me medication. Because she'd quoted didn't WanNA work for free. I don't know how it works as far as that goes as I said well D Like you seriously want me to go cold Turkey off benzes which is a really really bad idea. Read about anywhere. It's extremely bad idea. And she said you have to talk to your insurance company. There's nothing I can do very businesslike after seeing this person for six years. Very business like you said this before. Yo- your therapist is not your friend now like I know you think they are and they can buy friendly. But they're not you know you're paying their boat like that's what you're doing. I want totally figured out pretty quickly that this is one hundred percent of money thing and she actually doesn't care which is I mean. I'm not you can't pay me to fucking you legitimately can't pay me to care about somebody pantomime at all day. But sure. Yeah so so I went cold Turkey benzes and I was really really sick. For like the past three episodes past two episodes. But that's kind of a flu game thing for me and I've only recently maybe in the past week got my shit back together. And the Bummer is that I realized that I kinda didn't need to be on Zanex every day to begin with although as prescribed it doesn't maintenance drug and it made me a very reluctant to care about anything Yup which is not actually didn't work out that well at all. And what if you care too much now? I know it's something I I don't feel like I care too much. I feel like a Agean that right. I actually cared to the Reich. I cleaned my car and ship them all of a sudden lake. You go from being like I kind of like a bit of nihilist to two full on just hugging people on the street and yeah what if it just keeps going and made me feeling good just keeps going up. I become a hug me Guy. I was talking last night about how I don't believe in trauma and that if if something bad happens to you and it's whatever sets you into a direction where you can't control your output like you if you get an input because of trauma you can't properly modulate your output if that's true then that should stand the reason there should be the opposite person. The person who's something so good happens to them that they can't help but modulate their enthusiasm for life and those people that you really don't find them that often so I find people that feel guilty about being happy. That's a little different but yeah it's it's only skews negative. It never worked positive breast. So hopefully you can be that person. Now you're you're all fucking benzes and you just you just raising and raising. I feel like that now. Honestly the past week has been great. You know the woman who works at the Cumberland Farms No. I don't think that'll ever happen. I am always going to be me son with whatever that entails unbridled enthusiasm. Yeah exactly my father does unbridled enthusiasm for a lot of things. I do feel very much more enthusiastic about a lot of stuff that I think I remember being myself at one point and being into stuff. That was really weird and cool and to me and then they kind of went away. I felt like I've really felt like just another person for a little bit of time taking way too. Many fills and So I feel like me again which is great and I've always been sort of like A Gregarious Guy. I feel Kinda renewed when that. Did you wake up and look in the mirror and go? Hello me it's the real on. I did actually I was like no. I actually who I see in the mirror my room. I realized that taking Benza. Downers where we're dragging me down. And then when I realized like oh I would get depressed when I at the end of the day when the dose start to taper off and then I would upgrade to two and then so I was just basically medicated. Twenty four seven hundred. How good really no good and so now I've I've always been very good When my when my bipolar diagnosis wasn't completely flaring. I've always been really good. I like picking things as they come like all right. Well okay. Okay all right and I've gotten back to that. It's only been a week but I've gotten back to that especially at work and socially everything's great sick. Feel very good to saying everybody life. There is life after love has share share said. There is life after love of pills. So let's let's get you into that Russian hospital and maybe you can share a room with Jordan Peterson. And you guys can talk about coming off. Benzoate together great. I'm sure he's Oh jeeze if you don't have kids you that's not how life works. Oh boy no. We don't agree on. Don't believe you properly discharged your responsibilities yet. Like fucking okay. One thousand nine hundred dollar airfare to get here and they listen to as fuck JP. Who told you who told YOU TALK? Invited you all right. All of his. All of his arguments can be diffused with like okay. Well who invited you all right. Cool idea sick bro. Yeah there wasn't a bar like who invited you killjoy. You love your daughter. You Re re tweeted a bikini photo of your daughter all weird a little weird man whenever you're in there until like a weird advanced form of Fascist Kito. They're like we only eat. Meat raised on white farms. And it's really a look at my daughter. She's in perfect house. Do that'd my next Diet Fascist Kito person so so far this episode we've gotten fascist dance pop and now fascist just. I'm just preparing for life after KITA AFTER KITO. Virus now Corona Corona virus comes and takes your young holy fuck so we've talked about China a lot. We've not talked about Iran and Corona virus. Have you caught any of what's going on there? There's a whole other as usual. Iran's got a whole other thing which I love I liked it. They transferred what eight victims to a local hospital and everyone arounds solution to that was to burn the hospital down. Yeah that's really good very very primitive. It's pretty wild hot spot of also. I'm not against the idea. Listen My my ideal. Form of governance is lots of small places pulling off small experiments to see what works right now. We've tried building ten hospitals and five days. Now we're GONNA try burning down ten hospitals in five days at the end of the day we get to compare data building hospitals and five days. That's fine I mean it's Wayne was a strong word. They look a little bit. They look more like Oh I mean they're not ever Blinka. They're not they're not GonNa win the awards for architecture brutal as quick architecture but they did build fifteen hospitals and ten days Clinton crazy like that an architectural triumph which should usually don't have security walls around them. That's the sandwich will. I mean that say triumph of basically China put all of the construction companies in United States on Front Street being like yet. Why does it take turner construction or BB L. Ten years to build a fucking hospitals still rocking out? There still doing a union dude sitting around the coffee cooler or McDonald's fucking juice cooler and there's one dude digging a hole times a million days and your union beef you've got project managers. You have all this shit people at work talking about it. They're like they're going to pull that off without project managers. I'm like that's why they did it because there's no all the red tape was completely eliminated. I don't understand if that were true. Where are the project managers for everything that's happened before there were project manager for the pyramid's just went and did that shit on cocaine? Macho Pichu Syria's mantra that you think. They went on Coke when I did that Montreal teacher and all that Shit That was on coke cocaine. That's all I love that. That's great they really did. 'cause they you think makes you want to build ship. Cocaine will make you want to like organize your clothes and all that other shit so this went and did it got really tired afterward to the death and they drink coke to help all we got Diet Coke. Diet coke shortage coming. What's your wall because apparently the Diet coke drinking are coming is coming from China? Maybe the last name. Yeah so Okay there's also going to be a global riboflavin shortage. Oh is that right. Yes more importantly there's going to be a global Riboflavin shorted because most of the world's Riboflavin Stars come from China. Luckily I only eat meat from white owned farms. So I will be okay in this in this downturn. That's great you're like the wolves wolverines man. I don't really upsetting wolverines. This is going to be a little. I mean it's not really is not going to because there are many many many more people died of regular flu virus. So people like it's fine but this is a great experiment in. This is a weird Old Lady's movie experiment in Hype and the it's like the bread and milk reaction to a storm times. A million. The forgotten soccer lost like rough scene. I got ice. Let all my shit down. Because of that I switched all of my especially buying right. Now is the time that by you know well my on my IRA switched to bonds. Mostly but then I am. I am trying. I'm looking to buy low this week as I already paid my rent and this is my paycheck to do whatever I want. What else sick so I might buy low. I don't Know My Little Textbook Company.

I don't like their interface very interesting area but yeah so it's march march. First Leap Day was yesterday. No wonder I was in such a state. It was just say a lot of people. Hanson Astra logical reasons for Leap Day. Being the way it was like. Oh God anybody needs a psychic reading. You know some actually somebody on my time posted for some people leap days the worst day. Holy fucking hell what it's like. It's Mercury in retrograde times a times a million and a lot of people are gonNA have a lot of trouble navigating this day. Not Kidding people actually said that this is why I don't believe trauma exists. Come on knock it all giving it a good name by by marketing. People's fucking for your own to further your weird dinky and psychic helpline astrology. Business the funny thing too is like I'm open to any theory including theories about mercury being in retrograde like it's like other sure I'll listen to it whatever but y'all come on. Don't don't give me the fucking Encyclopedia Brown version. Thought in real I just I honestly. I couldn't care less. I think it's funny. I watch people actually believe this stuff so much whether sure whatever I because. I don't like to argue at all even if it Muslims just friendly. I believe this will. I believe I can do that. Shit all you see me out in the world. Chances are if I haven't done that yet. I'll do it shortly okay. I 'cause I'm so wholly dedicated people one of the fuck. They want that okay. Great I'm not going to prove you wrong or right. I'm just going to listen that that like people in art in relationships and business.

They're not gonNA fucking happen. You're not gonNA grab my sheets. It's not gonNA happen. That for some reason reminds me so last night tonight. Arts leapt at you and I were out. We're having a grand old time patrolman's we didn't have a grand old having a nice day. We miss a very a watershed moment. A cultural moment. That will never happen again. Bernie Sanders Lost South Carolina of duty. Really are you. Are you familiar with the Lansing Berg price chopper? It closed it closed for those of you. Who are not familiar. Which is I would assume.

The videos of their little. There was seven hundred women on one half of an eight and a half by eleven sheets.

Can we could drive out in our way. We could do that tomorrow. Go Do I didn't have that damn the Dan Baugh spree down my some questions. Yeah let's do it. Put out a call for questions. I saw that I got a couple. Oggi's what did I do know this. This is why we need an associate producer and we need somebody running the board. Who's the guy in the Joe? Rogan Jamie Jamie up. We need Jamie Paul that it's been three episodes now. That almost stopped the recording. Because I'm I'm just doing too much at once. It's Okay Right. Oh we have to do a buzzer check. Real quick forget to do that. Oh you're bringing that stuff up onto a buzzer check. Because I never know if it's up or not so we go good okay. We'RE BACK ANNIHILATION. Says is not imminent. We do some questions with the Buzzer. Plan aren't fucking on. Did you all move out by twenty two? I'm twenty two now and very different city of my partner but it seems almost undoable financially. Yes I had moved out by the time I was twenty two and we did it like when I was seventeen it was like eighteen but I did move. My first move out was to Olympia Washington. I'm not sure everyone counts right out of school. That was a weird one so I don't know if that counts because I had just left and then came back but so I mean life right now is undoable financially when you look at it and nobody's secure. I was GONNA say like you might be looking at a place that is actually financially undoable. I mean there's a certain point when you move anywhere you have to just look at the amount of money you have and say okay. I'm going to do. That's the that's the biggest problem moving somewhere else like. When I moved to New York I had like under a thousand dollars and I was just like okay. Well I gotTa make this happen. Just got a new move. Seven hundred must happen. That's it and you know sock first. Few months were very difficult. A lot of those months are really difficult allows you might as well. But who's GonNa do it especially if you've got a partner that makes it much easier? 'cause at least you can do it half the rent then just eat shit and and get like a one room sublet. You guys both live in for two months for like a couple of hundred bucks while you get jobs. Thought our new thing about living in the city. Sometimes you feel like you don't have a partner. Yes that's true. Your only friend is the city of Angels. That is true. The city living. Are you lonely? No only as I am together.

Live performance was super bad. No my God. I recently happened upon that the buzzer stops. Stop lying but this is worth listening to because it is like notoriously terrible red hot chili chilly. Chilly chilly chilly art. So we got a question. When you're looking said fuck I thought that was goody Google Bencher Guy Philadelphia Inquirer so. I'm going to do that while you introduced by Roseanne and Tom Arnold. No wonder their plan. Fucking love those. Sean Young really young shunted is trying to throw shade in our man. Paul is really bad a flat city. He's all screwed up into the John. Does this thing where he is. Always a little bit out of tune and I actually really liked it. I think we talked about. I actually think that is the one redeeming quality of this band. His guitars always just a touch tune. Which I think is adorable. The drummer there with no shirts on and it's just for one song interesting. They just never didn't even bring shirts. They just show up like this. This is their national television. Debut kind of there was a point like TV audio used to be very bad lake. I never just does not now so you don't notice but like live performances on TV. Where always awful. I mean. There's a chance they also can't hear each other. I think it's exactly what's going on because he can't play full blast. Yeah the one that did play full blast like the replacements weren't invited back. Yes Dr Way loud. Just play the fucking song in Van Gogh. Jesus how anybody playing a guitar or singing into microphone fences themselves art and you gotta rip it up. Oh I need to do things differently now.

Now you're in San Diego over ten years. I was there for seahawks. Winning the Super Bowl is the last time I was there. Wow but I have been there three four times in my life. I think I have no mental picture of this place. It's just missing and it's not like I just broke through implanted show and left like we got to his show took a cab to a different place and like oh. I should have seen a lot of the city seen missing. I got nothing. Because you're on the tour everything just rolls into especially when you get out that far there? I even took a train because the band left and I was still in L. A. and I took a train from La to San Diego. I still don't remember the city. Nothing I actually. That's not unusual theory theory. San Diego doesn't actually exist. Which does a sigh up. It's not real because you don't believe in this. Is that there. Maybe you're right. Maybe you're wrong. I don't know I remember how to get to. I remember specific things and remember how to get to Kingdom City Missouri. But I don't remember San Diego California United States places Kingdom City Missouri. Mean More to you.

The Hero's journey aspect is I find it to be extremely universal to all people as a week. Man Who is in using my daughter's tit photo I post it. My daughter's only fans link is live. Only friends hacked you see that. Oh Yeah I got hacked get hacked. Somebody went through the painstaking trouble of compiling a nine hour video of pretty much. Everybody on homeland. God I'm fucking pervert with an adderall prescription. Did and they're like we didn't get hacked and they're like well. How did this happen? They're like somebody put together a spice video. Which can happen so now. We can't really safeguard against that because we never thought that anyone would actually do that. But this is one of those things. Because like I've gone on record. I'm pro sex worker anti-system foster which is why I will never vote for Bernie Sanders and you shouldn't either mayor trump out of the race. That was that right. Wow breaking news the CIA.

Pro Sex worker definitely make money but once they all these people get on twitter about it and be like you're a piece of shit if you download the only fans leak beppe we work hard for our money etc and you'll get that but one of the things I we've talked about this one of the guiding principles I have in this life is don't go to a dive bar and complain when divy things happen like this city when you see the same thing. It's just that's how it goes when you're taking a bunch of money from people who are masturbating to a computer screen. They're going to do masturbaters things. And that's how it goes. These are the wages of the sex worker. I you know it's it's really no different than doing high interest loans. Usually you're going to deal with a certain kind of person. And they're going to have their foibles. So that's at Manono to tell you. Yeah there's going to be one Weirdo out there. It was going to spend the fucking whole month putting all the shit together. Yeah and he. I need the only way to get access to those videos is to pay for them so technically he paid for them.

Hour 1 Will The SCOTUS Hear Trump's Election Case?

"Way taco bells toasted to is back. Are you thinking what i'm thinking. They tend to lupu delicious love and now cinnamon medium break site. This is cool. we're all thinking. The five dollar toasted cheddar chalupa is back only at taco bell kevin participating locations for content global prices hours and participation vary tax. Extra foods freezes mr new york. Mark simone on w. o. r. to talk about the word snow forecast snow no accumulation. So don't worry about it. Hey we got lots to get. Did you watch said briefing. The governor cuomo did yesterday. I think we need a team of psychologists to go over that what you could see some of what must be going on in his head We'll get to president. Trump will get to the the legal case where it stands. What chance does it have. We'll get that coming up. We'll get to this new lockdown Re the end of indoor dining as possible but a little Well i it's questionable. Why you would even do that. We'll get to john lennon and a whole lot more so Here's the here's the latest. The these cases are on track may see some movement by the end of the day today or tomorrow in other words getting to the supreme court. This could happen You see you. Fake news will keep telling you what i blocked every round. They've lost every case they've lost it. Well that's good that's fine. That's what you wanna do. This is like bush v gore. You wanna lose in all these lower courts you have to get to the supreme court. That's where you'll get the decision you need and this is the big. If that's where if you're lucky you'll get the remedy that you need. So you got to get this. To the supreme court. In the case of bush v gore. It took till this week. And then it was december the thirteenth when they finally won their. I think that's Something next saturday. So the gut time later today. Hopefully at some point today the supreme court will decide to hear the case of the supreme court. I think it's remember the number. It's eight thousand cases apply every year to heard in the supreme court. Eight thousand cases. They take about eight of them. So it's it's about a one percent chance that you get to the supreme court but obviously this is a very big very high profile case. Now if you get to the supreme court what do you do. Who would argue. That would go before the court rudy. Giuliani obviously can't do anything. He's got a corona virus recovering. Doing nicely they say. No fever no temperature but obviously as to quarantine can't go anywhere and i don't think the supreme court is ready for a zuma meetings of that. The perfect guy would be ted cruz and ted cruz has volunteered to do it. Ted cruz e he was a lawyer. He was a solicitor. General of texas handled a lot. A big cases and he's been before supreme court a dozen times and he's one of you cases in the supreme court has offered to do it. he'd be perfect to do it. I don't know what's going on in the white house. They haven't been rushed in there and taking them up on the offer in a symptoms. There's a lot of egos involved Whether it's a rudy or whoever and legal team don't want crew's coming in No i think this is the clip here. Lou dobbs who is usually the smartest person in the room and generally the smartest guy around yelling at white house officials. Stephen miller on the president's closest advisers. Why haven't yet mmediately accepted Cruises off ronco. I'm so clumsy. I hit the not only hit the wrong cut. I changed a. You'll get it back. But for some reason miller again It's not up to him and maybe he didn't know the answer but it was quite an the reality is there this president right now is fighting and let's be straightforward about it. He's fighting all alone and ted cruz except up to say he'll argue before the supreme court. Why on god's green earth wouldn't the white house jump on it. Why shouldn't they have that right now. I'll just say this one of the thing. Though if three state legislators i outlined one correction save. I won't let you do this. I'm not gonna let you do that. I'm not gonna let you do that. I ask a question you and i. We're reasonably smart and decent fellas. Why don't you answer me. That's why i'm asking here stephen. Why don't you guys jump and salute ted cruz and say yes. We want you on the team now. My god this is not a time for her knee. Seen nonsense on the part of the republican party which is watching. It's blood drain into the streets. Because they're gutless for a while. But lou dobbs great show every day at five o'clock smartest around and if they're white house is smart. Ted cruz will be called over there today to get to work so the supreme court movement could happen today later today or tomorrow. Hopefully it gets the supreme court. Here's the problem they've got the case Boneless of the fake news. There's tons and tons and tons of evidence of illegal voting votes being thrown out not counted votes. It shouldn't be counted getting counted counterfeit ballots. They've got the evidence. Witnesses tons of it easy to prove in court. That doesn't mean you get the remedy that you want court might rule. Even the supreme court might rule Yes we've proven it. But it's not enough in numbers to overturn the election or it could be enough but Our remedy is no more dominion software. No more counting the votes on foreign servers or in the future there must be somebody from both sides counting every single ba. You might get a remedy like that. It's a big thing for court to overturn an election. And i i know it's the supreme court but they've backed down a number of times when it was just too much controversy particularly that obamacare decision robertson. The court wanted to throw it up and they didn't have the nerve to do it so they they created a very clever legal ruling. That s Part could be illegal. It was enough to hand it back to the states and let them figure it out. So that's the problem the probably win these cases. But it doesn't mean you get what you want to get out of all this so We'll see what happens by if you don't see some real movement by the end of the day tomorrow wednesday That's a problem The president working hard on all of these cases He's handled a million lawsuits. He was famous for suing people. The president's been in a million lawsuits and he micromanage them so he knows. Got a good shot at winning these cases again you might not get the remedy. But he's got a good shot at winning. If he didn't think you get any shot he would have. Pulled out. Like the sydney powell case greg case. But that's gonna take a year to figure that out so he knew that pulled out of that case so we'll see what happens today at the white house eight big vaccine summit as they discuss all this. Hey in britain in the uk today they are giving out the vaccines. I think it was a nine year old woman who just got the first vaccine today. i don't know if this is the way to go. They've decided they'll do the very elderly. I in this country in this makes more sense. You do the frontline healthcare workers. I i know the very elderly are vulnerable. But they can just stay home and be safe easier for them to stay home than help. Healthcare workers left to go to work. Take the train all of that stuff. So it's not the smartest thing but that's what they're doing the uk. The older the over eighty crowd. Goes i the queen whose how this. She's like ninety eight. The prince's ninety nine. They're going to get the vaccine at that age A okay if they want the vaccine but even the placebo could kill these two but I guess they're pretty so the vaccine will be Here I think by the end of this week. The fda approval will come and it looks like december fourteenth in connecticut cimber fifteenth in new york. They'll start giving out. The vaccines is a lot of doses. And again it's it's Frontline healthcare workers first phase one. It's five phases face to law enforcement People like that Face three it starts going to the general public who phase three is a sixty five and older or anybody with a serious underlying condition will get it and then face for You know you keep hearing. Only a million doses. That's the pfizer when this four other vaccines on the way so Added a there'll be twenty thirty million each month coming. It'll take till march to really really get enough of the population vaccinated so that We got some herd immunity. And everything's okay here now. The governor going a little crazy a little crazy. This talk about shutting down indoor dining. There is no evidence anywhere that these restaurants are causing cases as long as. They're careful as long as it's the indoor dining twenty-five percent tables far apart nobody is getting sick in these restaurants. The first person that we get sick of the waiters at every table of the busboy. None of them are getting sick. No evidence that restaurants are causing the so. Why is he causing down restaurant. It's the easiest thing to do. It doesn't make any sense. He's using the wrong numbers using a hospitalizations lagging indicator. You know the death numbers the least important numbers far as trends. That's a real lagging indicator when you see that death number that's who got the virus four or five weeks ago six weeks ago takes a long time first of all. I'm very few people die from coronavirus. It's less than one percent and also if somebody dies it means they've had it for weeks and weeks it's a lagging indicator And the same thing with the hospitalization you get it in your immediately hospitalized you get it and then you get sicker and sicker. Maybe a week later. You're hospital so when you see hospitalizations or that's people got it a week ago to should use the number of new cases every day. That's the the best indicator of a trend and again no hint. That anybody's getting listened restaurants. Why this big spike now. How come this past week. We've seen this huge well. Obviously it's thanksgiving. Everybody traveled for thanksgiving. They had all those restrictions meantime the airports report of million people traveling day. And i told you this weeks ago. Not only all this traveling but all these college kids coming home. They're generally a symptomatic. I know the college will tell you. They test everybody every year. And you can test these college kids and four hours later. Who knows what they're up to but All these college kids coming home. All that travel caused this spike. That's why it's everywhere all over the country. So this is thanksgiving spike. You're seeing right now and everybody's worried that we're going to we're going into Hanukkah starts thursday. Then you got the christmas season so this'll be another spike even more travel for these holidays and that means a huge january spike. So that's what Th there was a briefing yesterday. This was the most bizarre thing i ever saw. This was governor cuomo and dr fauci found. She has screwed us up more times. More ways in new york. He was advising governor cuomo back in january february and march. This out was getting everything wrong. It's one of the reasons. Cuomo shutdown new york two weeks too late he was listening to fao cheap so But again we need a team of psychiatrists to go over this first. He prints out she on their on. Zoom thing you can see out. She's up on the screen and cuomo then makes thirty minute speech with faculty just sitting there. Who talks at long and leaves the guy just hanging but then as they both talk and clowning around. It's amazing what goes through komo's head. He believes that he and fau she are like deniro. and pacino. now wait a minute. Maybe we enlist you. I'll do it with you. Do an ad telling new yorkers it's safe to take the vaccine to To you know put us together. We're like the modern day De niro pacino can be which whenever whichever you want you can be the deniro gene. Foul augury affirmative. Who who do you want the niro pacino. Which one do you want to her feelings politician. Good publicity hound media horace who they actually believe this Cuomo thinks he's deniro. Maybe deniro or he thinks he's pacino. Guess maybe he's al pacino in the irishman kinda old the egomaniac But i guarantee you foudy has never had a problem in his life where he's walking down the street and people think he's al pacino i guarantee and nobody was ever in restaurant looking at saying who is is it is. It helps you now. Nobody's ever confused these two for de niro pacino. Cuomo and ci. It's like a freighter corey own and found. She definitely phil rizzuto. He's just another phil rizzuto type. So they went over this Restaurant stuff i. I don't know why they wanna close indoor when we were talking about what the best strategy would be. We would say something like you know. Close the bars keep. The schools open is the best thing to do so long as you subsidize and help the restaurant hers. And the bar owners so that they don't go down and essentially crashed because of the economic strain but if we can keep those things on the controls subsidize those people as well as keep the schools open. We'd be in good shape you know. He does have cute voice rasping. That's cute it's lovable. When he never says anything never gives you a straight answer again and You gotta fake news covering this and not one reporter said the cuomo or there's no evidence of anybody getting sick in a restaurant. Why closing them down. Now here's the other thing All of this spike happened because of the travel because of thanksgiving gatherings in people's homes. Now that's dangerous. You know in a restaurant they take your temperature. You wear your mask but when you go to somebody's house family gathering of party whatever. Nobody's careful everybody's mask is often. You're all mingling all over each other but there's no evidence of a restaurant if you happen this dangerous spike. Have you seen what goes on in these airplanes two hundred and fifty people crammed into a little cabin of an airplane all sitting right next to each other. This coach seats. You're all on top of each other. You know if you're really worried about this spike. Shut that down for a couple of weeks and see if it makes a difference. You're in a restaurant. You ten feet away from anybody. You're in a coach section of an airplane you ten inches from So it makes no sense at all. it's gonna wipe out a lot of restaurants. It's just the people being able to go out to dinner. This is a five hundred thousand people working in the restaurant industry here in new york people's lives depend on this people's livelihoods. You'll cuomo always. Actually he wants to protect all the lives. He wants to save lives. What about life's you know. You may save their life but you destroy their life. You take away their business. You take away. Their livelihood destroyed their finances. You're putting people out of work so anyway we'll get back to this Lots to get to bill. O'riley we'll be with us in a few minutes. Check out the webpage. A lot of good stuff up there Take a trip back this. We're gonna talk about john lennon little boy that was the nineteen eighties of new york. Take this video. It will take you through the nineteen eighties. Who the big names. Where it was a whole different new york back then was quite a place in the eighties. Oh also you haven't seen the white house christmas decorations. malania trump first lady did a spectacular job. Take a look at the white house. Christmas decorations really beautiful. It's all up on the web page. Go to seven ten. W o r dot com slash mark. Seven ten w r dot com slash mark. Eight hundred three to one zero seven ten. That's the number under of the sleazy thing about all of this so quick to shut these restaurants down but not the gyms not the hair salons not anything else just restaurants he. This governor targets restaurants. But if if you've noticed watch saturday night live you notice. They have a live studio audience every week. How's that allowed. Why are they allowed to have a studio audience there Because they pull a little scam and the governor and everybody else. The mayor look the other way what saturday night live does is they pay the audience members hundred fifty bucks. That's a lot for a sit there and let them you'd have to pay people a lot to laugh those sketches but they pay the audience on saturday. Night live and that way. They're technically not an audience. Those are employees if anybody has they've been hired as roma's and that way to get around it but the governor on that where's the mayor on that. Oh you could say well. They're spacing them out. Yeah the six feet apart restaurant with. What's the difference. What and why would you let hundred people come sitting in an audience saturday. Night live and look the other way. But you won't let thirty or forty sit in a restaurant anyway. Let's take some calls since go to mara in nevada. Hey laura how're you doing. Golly how why you. I'm calling. Because i call him because i cannot believe a ninety year. Old woman was the first one to get the vaccine mark. I'm a ninety year old woman. I did look i know but ghani. I've been listening to you for so long. So but i if they came to me i would say no. No no. don't give it to me you give it to a teacher. The children have to get back to a normal life. What are you doing event. i'm a native new yorker but let me say this as a native new yorker. I'm very suspicious about why they giving the old people in nursing homes. Why there i are. They further testing vaccine from. What am i doing in excited there. Thanks for a take you cuomo. That's first of all. It's a lot of guilt on the part of andrew. Cuomo who certainly killed a lot of people in nursing homes now. He's trying to make up for it. Anyway let's go to david in queens daily there but marquez glow mark yes hey mark clowns things such concern yesterday. They the new york city sheriff's office yet there was no concern when the nypd was having spanish on their head. People need to understand that the new york city sheriff They've taken the oath. They talk in office. You're enforcing mandy super. Tyrannical governor not laws because the new york state assembly on march. Your defensive enemies of the people don't care all right thanks for talking about in. Staten island. That bar that max public that's defying the governor and staying open. And i'm a mac side but you're not handling this right now get yourself. An army of lawyers organize all the pubs all the businesses file a massive lawsuit against do it that way and if you just wanted defiant. Your strategy isn't great. You know you can't just open it and say what's he gonna do about it and send a hundred agents down there and close you down and take your license and never give it back alive can do about it taking a new courtroom where it belongs. Let's go to dr bob dr bob and long island. I know dr bob. Great surgeon this whole thing with the election. So everything's been a sham. it's a sham election. and unless the supreme court get's in gear they see what's going on the on the horizon. They may be swamped with additional people in their court which will destroy the court. The the techniques that we used during the election were unconstitutional. And in the way that They didn't follow the rules for the various states as well as federal laws. And what is the. What is the supreme court for but maintain constitutional law to maintain the constitution the department of justice and the attorney general. They have been dr bob. You're a surgeon. Do you wear when you do surgery. Where one of those blue surgical masks. Yeah we will Paper mass. So with the surgical masks we wear a hat. Cover a haircut at us which is usually paper or some people use cloth yes is considered good enough for surgery right to keep every first decades absolutely yes of course so obviously. It's a pretty good mass right. Dr bob thanks for calling. Let's go to mike in brooklyn. Hey mike am okay. Doing listen i wanted to ask you okay. You know Watching the media you know biden has been hiring you know. He's the first one to hire women for this and african american for that. Why is that hiring somebody because of race any less You know any any worse than than not hiring somebody because of race whatever somebody yeah no. It's a good question. I have noticed that democrats. It's all about symbolism it's all about narrative its create a fairytale or whatever this dr fauci. He's cute he's a lovable. He's got a cute voice. He talks like this and cuomo introduced by saying he's america's doctor. If you had a doctor that you'd find somebody else. The guy got everything wrong. In january february and march he screwed up completely at the beginning of this all through january. Always the virus will never come here. When it came here to february senate will go away till the weather gets warm in march. You saying that's nothing taken crew. He actually told people who take a cruise beginning of march middle marci sent. Don't wear masks. they don't work. How could he say this a. He's a bumbling klutz but again. It's about the narrative he's cute. He's america's doctor so it's the same thing with The first woman how is she any good. At doesn't matter she stuff first woman to to it's all about the symbols and fairytales narratives and when we come back bill o'reilly we'll talk to him next. What is the president. do now. we'll get to all of that on seven ten. W let's get the latest news. Here's noam label. Bill o'reilly yes. Got one of the hottest websites around getting tons and tons and tons of yours. Bill o'reilly dot com. You can get the tv. Show their get his column. You can get the latest book killing crazy horse. Already a huge bestseller you can pre-order the new book and it's right it's coming out killing the mob. Just go to bill. O'riley dot com bill o'reilly how you doing. I'm good i'm good. What do you think. Donald trump is thinking right now. He's thinking about what he'll do if he doesn't stay where he'll go. He's so angry. I wrote a column on bill. O'reilly dot com entitled the trump show packs up And a lot of people got mad very interesting. We did this last night on the nose in news. A lot of people very angry with me. Because i'm saying that. Donald trump will leave the white house on january twenty. And i say that because he will. I'm i'm looking at myself i go. Do you really think that. Donald trump's not gonna leave the white house on january twentieth because on monday Certification happens in in the constitution. Once the state certified votes then the new president or the incumbent. Whoever wins gets ready to take over now that has never been deviated from but there are people in in america who apparently believed that. Donald trump is going to have another four years in office. Now that being said is it fair. No was there voter fraud. Yes but it's gonna take a long time for that to be proven and you know this happened in nineteen sixty. I know you know this and in my upcoming book killing the mob out in. May i get into this. How the election because of organized crime was given to jfk. nixon. Really want it. And you. So i i look at americans and i want everybody to hear the truth. That's what i'm in business to do. But sometimes as you know when you tell the truth they don't like you they don't wanna hear it. We should point out. It's possible maybe it's a million to one shot but that they could argue from the supreme court win a victory or to get state or two over. It's possible even if it's monday well monday. Give people supreme court hasn't even accepted anything. Yeah they haven't even accepted the case so it's literally impossible to stop the state certifications by monday. Now in some kind of unprecedented action say those voting machines that were used all over the country. Then somebody said or somebody could prove that they were rigged. Well i think the supreme court might step in but that would be as you said a miracle. You'd have to prove that and it's not an easy thing to do if the president leaves on january twentieth when it goes to florida moves into mar-a-lago well we do every day when he gets up well. I don't know firsthand because donald trump is very angry at this point as he should be Because there were a lot of things that that happened that were absolutely corrupt So i don't know i and he's not speaking to even his family members about what he's going to do. That is not a topic of discussion right now. So i have to basically look at it from my knowledge of him and what i think might happen so this is speculation. I don't do that very much. So he'll he'll go down to florida. He'll become the ceo of the trump organization. Again but he's not going to be engaged. Day to day is gonna let us children do that. And then i think he's going to negotiate a media deal and my assessment is he's going to write a book and that's going to be tied into a television deal. Yeah so you. You'd he would sign with someone to do. Television commentary is not going to anchor a show and they would publish his book. Th that he would get forty million dollars. Who's gonna pay it. Rubert murdoch murdoch. They're the two of them are clashing right now. Really forty million now this this rumor everywhere. He's gonna start tv network. I don't think he would ever do that. Nobody would always gonna do and he knows. Trump is a guy who lives in the traditional television landscape Which is dying. And in the column. That i write. I say the only guy who could revive it even for a little while. Is donald trump if you look at the television ratings. For the last ten days i mean viewers are bailing out millions of viewers. Turn it set off. Trump could bring him back so it goes into business. Donald trump is going to get an immediate pop and a big one and trump's going to get a load of cash. So that's what i feel is going to happen. I'm i'm a hundred percent. Sure that news corp murdoch will make an offer to trump. Now you're correct in saying that. He is not happy with the performance of the fox news channel. I assume with rupert murdoch began. Forty million's a lot of dull. Yeah well Now what happens. All of the news is going to die because if five murder become present he's the dulles guy in the world beyond just probably won't even be around nothing will happen. What did they do. How did they survive. Don't well number one the news media and that's the that's why said that trump's show tax up because that was it for the last five years yeah donald trump every night round the clock radio tv. Donald trump donald trump. He's gone for a little while anyway. what do you do with biden so biden. I think. Didn't he have his leg amputated because he walked off or something. I the latest. I somehow but biden. You'll be in the white house but you'll never see him once in a while you might come out and wave at you not gonna do. You never get see the man and so what do they do. So i assume no. Just blame trump for stuff. You continue to do that. But even the viewers are gonna go tired of this. I'm gonna watch a dolly holly christmas or whatever is i. Is there any start attacking biden. Jesper something to do just to create some excitement. No chance none so what they do is anything that goes wrong in the country will be trump's fault so say the economy takes a dive. That's gonna be trump's fall. Say the code. Vaccine turns people into werewolves. That's going to be transformed by not gonna have any biden is going to be teddy. Roosevelt and thomas jefferson combined the greatest guy ever because the media put him in there so then never gonna make admit a mistake ever. So that's what you're going to hear. But again i mean every viewer is gonna listeners. They're gonna go. This is insane. I think they know it's insane now. That's why the tv news is losing so much audience so quickly because the drama is over the drama is done and when cova goes what are you what are you have. You don't have anything. Wow well here. Every should go to bill. O'riley dot com great website. You can watch the tv show You can get the book killing crazy horse. If you want of few people had bought it already Also the new book you can pre-order it now killing the mob. You can watch the tv. Show what he got on tv tonight. Well do anger in america. Which is an unreported story On both sides but particularly in the conservative precincts people are absolutely livid and furious with the whole country in the election in the corruption. And you hear it every day mark on your program. Yeah yeah. I mean just crazed with anger. So we're going to deal with that. And there's a way to channel the anger into something positive. I'm going to try to get into that. But first we have to acknowledge how angry at least seventy four million people are who voted donald. Trump will ever watch go to a bill. O'reilly dot com.

For the best. In a jacket right now with this virus, we got a rubber jackets. They stretch out a little bit. Be himself is a veteran of the broadcast industry who first came to our attention of courses how he cars producers slash side kick only to abandon the King of Boston, radio. To become the Fox twenty, five morning show Co host, and then to reemerge on the radio as superstar midday sandwiched between some other guys that I don't know who they are. That I know they're conservatives. VP in the middle from noon to three on W. Arteta. Oh, Boston every day success six eighty am right is that they get that right? That was pretty good. I should be an announcer. Much I'm not saying the coronavirus has been unkind to me Adams but you're old enough to remember my shorts. I'm wearing same ones that bill parcells used to wear in summer camps that would show that role under the lid of hands eight. Good. That's Nice I was still wearing shorts I I have I have one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, eight skid marks on these shorts what Michele mcphee call up the covid fifteen. Feet. Adam, settle a bet for me. Were you the one that parcel said you're the johnny come around here that was Howard Green. Our Green showed up he's going to be a big shot and cover the bill parcells, press conferences and was. Like. Who Are you? I haven't seen you around here were you a johnny come lately and gave him so much shit and it was beautiful and Howard never lived it down i. mean it was like I think parcells actually apologize to him later said. He. Didn't know who the hell Howard Green wasn't. You know what to this day most people don't know who our Greece's. That was. You gotta just you had to have been there at the time but when you saw that. You would forget and seen you around modules. Johnny Come Lately Dallas Book, four like people would him it up to the cameras ourselves ahead of his I'm that way. So I'm working at channel three in Hartford, right and I'm covering bill parcells when he's The New York giants football coach and I go down there with a camera. And back then maybe they didn't have this big setup where you know you got in front of a thing and said Dunkin donuts or staples and sat at a desk. The coach would just walk in and you throw microphones in his face. So here's this guy from channel thirty in Hartford. He was like a rookie and. Somehow, he got the first question bill parcells and it was after they had beaten the San Francisco Forty Niners in a playoff game down there in New Jersey. And he says to the. Cells he goes timely wind coach. Parcels looks at them like death and then he says. It's the playoffs he goes. Every win is timely and everybody just started laughing and the guy felt like a toll last wife which he was So how you been VP house those cute kids yours the kids are good I did something today you would appreciate atom. So you know about the doctor found she baseball card, right? Yes. Fifty one, thousand copies. Sent a record in the record previous more than doubled. The record for the tops does these specialty cards they only sell them for twenty four hours and they on or whatever. Event happened or whatever. So they do the Thao she one. Yeah, and it's over fifty one thousand the previous record was like nineteen lose bows. I didn't by Vouch E card however my son Owen who you have spoken to a couple of times. Yes. We've got this thing. I'm actually looking up at it right now we have this in my house. We have this big being that cuts right through the ceiling on our roots in our living room and we decided me and my wife a couple of months ago that we're GonNa that's the beam of greatness now. Retired numbers up there showed on twitter you got. Some good ones up there you know some famous athletes yeah. Babe Ruth is there and body or course Larry Bird Etcetera. But Ted. Williams is there for some reason Owen has taken to like Ted Williams is favorite. So everything like. Did. You see what time it is and I'll look over and o'clock I'll say four, zero, six always doing stuff like that today I didn't by the FAO G card but I went online and looked at it cost me a couple of bucks but I got him the nineteen fifty-nine Card Ted Williams meeting. Babe rubes you son of a gun. I've been trying to collect the fifty nine flare Ted Williams set for my dad who had it when he was a kid. Ted Too and I'm up to about twenty of the cards. You WanNa dig. That's the question because I was looking into this stuff and it's it gets pricey and. It gets Pricey I'm not. I'm not overly concerned about quality but. Is going to be completing set with card number I think it's sixty eight, the one where he signed the contract. Forget it forget it. If I can complete at minus sixty eight. I'm going to give it to them and it'll be all good. He'll be fine I think I mean so you can get that is a reprint for like five bucks. To get the original is gonNA cost you five hundred bucks they D-. Do you know the history of that card Adams Ben Can Hold that car signing the contract. Yeah. Yeah. Because it had a number on it. What would number? They'd had information on the contract. Public. My right would that be I think that is it yeah and I don't know that the general manager was seized that his likeness was used either but he's gone now anyway. But. Something they printed them and there was only something I think was it five hundred or might have been even the last of that set we'd the card and then they pulled the the sixty eight card, but they still sold the sets with no sixty eight. So there was a seventy cards however many are in the set eighty I think vs hardcore on this stuff. That's hard core. He's Phil Castagnetti at missing podcast. It's really funny because I'm looking at an Ebay right now Dr Fauci tops cards you guys were talking about. About ten of them sold today for one hundred and seventy five dollars. Credit you could have got him yesterday but yet to get in on it in the twenty four hours, you could them for ten bucks. But that's what everybody does is they buy them and they immediately she likes. Let's see if we can spin these things and you. What are you doing with a doctor FAUCI card? Well, you're GonNa Rub, your vaccine all over it when it comes out. then. You're going to have to. You don't know this. You saw the pitch obviously yes. That's really bad. He flattened the curve go ahead saying. So the lights yeah. I asked we had a guy call up today to be in the middle as your announcer said, yes, and he said I look I bought three of those and I said why he said well, I'm hoping that somehow I signed because if I can get him to sign those are going to be worth ton. I said you deserve anything on the back he said Yeah I'm looking at right now tell me what it says and according to him the card says Dr Fauci through something like a straight and true pitch. So the first game of the Washington nationals season and If that, we straightened true that I'm having A. Diet disease because really well, since he became famous everything, he throws out there goes really hardcore to the left. I waited hey by the way I think that it's going to be eventually a museum. Ted Williams' head is in a cryogenic. Container Somewhere Zona. It's a frozen tears on I think eventually there's going to be a museum of all famous body parts of different people who are dead who like okay. It's like come on over here. We've got telly Savalas as Dick and a five court pickle jar. It's right over there over those boiled eggs knowledge John Dillinger's package mean this is how it's GonNa, be some day because people are GonNa have that Macabre. Sense of I want to see isn't Napoleon's Dick in a jar in New Jersey. I, don't know. How would I know that look? Some Weird Shit and I thought that'd be something right in your right up your alley read. There was adams absolutely would know it. So I think that confirmed there wasn't. That doesn't exist now. So what was the big talk today? Because I got fifteen topics I can just throw out there. We could get like thirty seconds of VP on all these different topics and you won't even have to listen to his radio show middays on six eight, hundred keio. Well, ironically, there's plenty of sports on Adams I. Mean I'm really into the baseball season even though the red sox like a double A. Team at best buy belay they had Jim Josh osage pitching last night who's had the guy that's going tonight. As we record this, it's Tuesday night. His name is what Matt something he has. He has the same amount of big league starts that I do. You know what's cool about it in I know you know these guys and you're listening to ABC and Remmy Do. These games in try to like or attend is great they. You would have thought that guy last night that through the four scoreless innings you would have thought that cy young himself out there because they were so. Excited that a guy could actually get a major league baseball here how that was wearing a red sox. Warm. They couldn't. Stop praising the guy he's a couple of. Things as a reliever like okay. Like Oh, my God dot gooden's outs. I would five thousand dollars right now that no matter who they've got after Ivaldi dill league. Hitters that guy consecutively in a major league uniform just do now if. You remember the old line with the Indians insane and pray for rain. Yes. You've got to come up with one of those ear of all the in praise for. Two years. Man, that's gotta be some line that says, this is the state of red I. I hate to interrupt, but I was right. It's actually. A nice. Holy Penis is at the urology? Museum. Of Columbia, university in a glass case with the Napoleonic crest on top is. Not Have Gotten a Selfie with that is really small. Apparently, it wasn't properly preserved over the man's disease. It's been compared to over the years to a piece of leather a shriveled ill and beef jerky. His. Mother. Language too much but you put if you ted. Williams, what's remaining of him next to what's remaining of? Napoleon. What would you have I'd say someone Torres Bonaparte. Bonaparte like that. By the way, his mother used to say know you're you really are very small. That's like a that's a waterspout. Maybe you should have been a girl and the thing is to his first girlfriend said to him Ho looks just like a penis only smaller. Always says over well. All right. So let's talk about these topics. If you don't mind because I always appreciate your opinions because I know that even though you did vote for Obama. Once once. You've come around to the clear thinking way of thinking. Let's Talk the police you defend defend. Well did you watch the bar hearings today on? Tuesday? We record this attorney general in front of Congress which resume typical clown show times. But I thought the key line on the best line was when bar said. So where do you guys he's looking at Congress's this is where do you stand on earning federal building? We're cool with that. Let's set the one down the street on fire and. When did he? When did that become? Okay, you know. Courthouse, I. Who Look. Like looks like. The Guy who was Roseanne's husband until he looks like a small version of John Goodman is somebody he's kind of a look about little deputy dog in them to Jowl. Elton John Do Deputy Dawg impersonations you WANNA. Hear one. Slur. Jeopardy. Dogs. Muskie. Bends over here going what's the today's? I've just made a TRACI lords reference today in my producers we get into break and they said, what was that thing you were talking about and I'm just had assert. I got you on that one. I had to throw out my my visa. VCR movies have of hers because I found out that after she'd made them we she was. Too young she was. Making Fourteen Tracy throw them out. Can you imagine what a waste of? Crime. If you got caught watching it, right somebody was supposed to report you like and you were to they were gonNA come get you. That was a big thing at the time. TRACI, Lords wasn't she in that porn movie Yankee doodle Dandy I think she might have been. What about the but here's the problem with the police thing is that All these crimes are busting out in every single city. In America New York is a mess Chicago's worse than a mess. The crimes are going up they're letting people out of prison. They're letting bad people out of prison and they're saying you know we need fewer caps. I mean, what's wrong with these mayors? Kobe thing on this was last week you know the socks put up the black lives matter banner and s enemy Hey we don't think it's a political statement. No. No no, that's not a statement but meanwhile, the him fire department was already to take down their blue lives matter flags because they were told explicitly that that is a political statement. Can that be if the other isn't right? How can one not be in one is? That is the most ridiculous thing and that's what that's why it shouldn't be a put it in front got trump's place in new. York. They put it on the sidewalks that he put it in Washington DC black lives matter and I get it everybody gets by now we're all hipped what the messages were black lives matter but we're not hip to why it's not classified as a a an anti-trump or anti right wing Tai Republican thing when the opposite happens the other way, right? Well the socks of the thing that gets me to like. Okay. So you put up the banner that's fine over mass. Pike. But then the broadcast, like we have to see the center field bleachers covered in it, we have to see it below behind the mound. You keep telling us. It's just so obvious but then you keep jamming it down our throats every five seconds which never done with anything else afford right but you can't do it enough now like how long does that go on before? It's like enough already my guess is it's going to be a while you know and it's really hard to seriously hard. I don't think I know any individual person in my entire life and I'm not young who is in favor of racism. So it's like, okay when Martin Luther King was alive fifty two years ago. We all at least in my generation we understand and we get it and were on board. Why does it always have to be the kind of thing where? Did you say all lives matter? I'm sorry it slipped out. Well, you suck you're taking away our message. No, we're not. We're just saying that if you can't just put one group into that group in say their lives matter and then you can't include everybody on the black lives matter website and read the manifesto I haven't. Well, it's all about defunding the police. Breaking up the nuclear family, which is stupid. It's it's amazing to see all these signs around here and they're selling two sides of the story there glamorizing one half of it, which we all get see. That's no fortunate part about this whole thing is that they're really they're kind of. Melting down the message a little bit, and we're going to lose it. If they had too many things to their agenda, you're going to lose people as you go. The leaders are self admitted they came out and said there are trained marcus. So it's an VP do you own a gun? I do not know and with my with my third. Is a good thing I don't see would find out no matter what I would end up in A. My boys are ten and fourteen and I just yesterday as a matter of fact, went to the Massachusetts Firearms Training Course. and. I got my certificate certificate that I passed the course. Now I go to I go to the police and my my dad when he passed away left me to guns and now for the first time in my life. I have guns and it's kind of a weird feeling. Crosstalk. Well. I'm going to going to. Leave. I, can you your record? What record? What are you talking about? I have a clean police record. Well How's that possible? Well. The first of all the only time I was ever arrested was in a car wash in Connecticut in Nineteen, Ninety four and the date. That's enough. That's enough right there for some sheriffs and they're the ones that gotta tell you. They dropped the charges because it wasn't. My wasn't my we'd. Tiles cousins we do. So I, I have a completely clean I've past corey checks you know for school functions and all that stuff. But so I don't have a problem with that. But I have I have two guns. Now it's really really kind of weird. Now, I gotta go back to the shooting range in practice but you so. When it comes to the gun control issue. Then you're you've got to be okay with what's what's your number? Is it second? Second You nailed it. Must say Louis Story, right couple that daybreak into the gate and they start marching and they come out with their guns. Now, they look like Weirdos Teixeira addressed I'll give you that but they're now arrested because they were like, Hey, we're gonNA protect our property just so you know they have licenses to carry those weapons and There is a doctrine in Missouri called the castle doctrine, which means if you feel threatened or your property threatened, you can defend it with guns and somehow they got charged anyway Dion Lewis. She's worse than Rachel Rollins. Similar, similar. Very similar position on all these issues and what are these people do wrong? No one got shot right now the prosecutors both have source connections. Yeah okay. how about the Let's see. What do you think of Charlie? What is V. think of Charlie Baker's handling of the closing down of Massachusetts, the reopening process and win school. What do you think will finally get back in Session Oh God? How about that? One yesterday? So we're GONNA give the teachers an extra ten days to get ready for school reopening. They have five more weeks before we even get to the day. Why do they need another ten days but teachers unions man that was one yesterday where I just started rolling is gone. Okay. We're doing this. We're still playing games. Say Number is one hundred and seven days. Supposedly we're going to do one, hundred, eighty days. We're GONNA do hundred seventy. Adams I haven't gambled recently, but let me know draft kings posted that I'd like the under. and. They have to get construction paper you know magic markets and stuff the teachers don't. Get that stuff and they usually supply their own don't they? Hey I got a commercial here. Actually look at this Oh look at this sports keep coming back. We get in sports by the way. I.

All League what is the line tonight on the socks like is it? That a hundred to win two thousand. Betting on God today. Suck. Right now, and they had at first day. They hit like crazy and then after that, it's slow. What are we doing a? Let's see what else have we got here for V. Well, are there is there going to be an NFL season? Yes or now? If I had a call it right now who we were patriots had a couple of guys. Stay had six I know it was hightower and. Chung Chung. Annan vitale the tally. Six of them. Every day the talk of the nation Golden World Right now oldest another one. Yeah. Would it be okay the head like the substitute players like they did during the strike year remember those scabs they had planned member that. That was one of them. You're not flutie got in the NFL I nineteen eighty-seven how he started. Now what about the statue is being ripped down vp because here's what pissed me off. I was perfectly okay. You know they. They want to go after Christopher Columbus he's been dead five hundred years I said okay whatever. But when they when they started going after like to Abe Lincoln's on the world, you know the the people who basically around Mount Rushmore they took Teddy, Roosevelt off in front of the Museum of New York what the Hell's wrong with these people and See The the John Harvard Statue at Harvard got. Spray painted the other day devil-worship worship on it. The guy was a preacher I. Don't Think Devil Worship is actually accurate if you know anything about the guy. Sure, we'll do that just because the one that gets me and you guys probably don't know it but. If there's one statue in Boston that I thought was going to be safe. It would be the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial You know the fifty four regiment that i American regimen naval war. The newburyport news today has a thing complaining about it says, it's time to reevaluate it because what message does it send when the white guys up on the Horse in the African Americans are on foot and. My thought was will the message it sending is that's how it was. That's what happened. Yeah history is is not important anymore though is how what really happened doesn't really matter anymore, but when I see people facing the Lincoln Memorial. I say what? The Hell's wrong with you not Abe Lincoln. He's a guy you should deface right? Well the Christmas addicts statue was vandalized as well. The first guy killed in the revolutionary war, they didn't even realize. He's an African American. Don't they don't realize they just don't care they just like here's something ruined. Just destroy I'm GonNa Stay Wisconsin was unbelievable. Really. The biggest, the one billy the guy was like a known abolitionist who left all his money to the cause and they put a thing around him and they older thing I honestly don't think they know I. Really. Don't think it's truly. Ignorance more than straight malicious lack of respect for his they weren't taught anything. That's the history of his is lacking again I'm not like I disagree with trump on this, I don't understand trump. Fighting for these military bases named after confederate generals. That at all I thought he has a huge opportunity to do something. To say those ten go and here's the names we propose. But let's kick it around. Good thing. I don't get on that. You don't I'm not one of these guys that says, you don't give an inch on anything I'm fine with considered statues coming down. Why do we put those people up on a pedestal now but there there does have to be limited his stuff in there does have to are we gonNA be a statue lists society going forward I mean what is what I want to set up on set up a fake fake confederate soldier statue somewhere in Massachusetts where they probably don't have any anyway, it'll be. General do have one on that island. It's not a statue, but it's a plaque because some confederate soldiers are being held their prisoner and I'm talking about a statue bakers. Had A tiny little confederate flag on it, and so that's why that thing's been back and forth but nobody can see it because you got to take a boat, dig it I just want to see if anybody will attack this fake statue it's a fake person. It's you know core colonel. Ebeneezer. Corn holder you know and just put a confederate hang see somebody attacks it even though the guy never existed how would they know anything but You ben will back me up on although I maybe with your own virus, you've changed the look at him but you have the look of confederate current. Oh you. Yes. You get the hat Y you're definitely A. Guy Like man that guy's been through a couple of years at tough battles you can tell whether it's confederate or union yes. You should be a civil war reenactor. That's great. Thank you. You could easily superimpose that famous picture of grant when he's leaning on the trade as the only tree that's left standing grants leading. You could easily see atoms behind him in A. This isn't bad. Brand, we're winning this school. If I have to have a retirement career that sounds a lot more interesting than work at home depot with an Orange Apron. Let me see how about Trans Athletes Vp or do you think of the women that are the men that were men and then became women and then compete against women? And Girls. I been on the same train on this from the style we're GONNA NOT GONNA. Have Women's sports anymore I have a daughter that's nine. I have a daughter that's five not gonna be able to play sports because unless they play on the main fence baseball team, it's done that words going. It just doesn't it to me. It's the autumn it in. Unfair. You're let's say you're a girl you're seventeen. You're hoping to go to a good school and you're going to try to get attract. And you're like the second fastest person on your team or whatever, and you're working really hard all of a sudden here comes this dude. Who last year came in fifth in the boys division and he's going to beat you by eight seconds in your race and he's going to take the trophy and he's GonNa make you look worse in your record and you're not going to get that scholarship and you're like, why am I coming in last because this guy that to me that sounds so unfair and that should be immediately the Supreme Court you deal with that well, my neighbor sees graduated now but last year you the fall before was actually when they had high school I don't know if you're gonNA remember those am this March Day lost in the field hockey semifinals to. Said and they lost two one and you know who scored the two goals. The Guy on the team, and then the guy had a hat trick in state finals and they won the championship in my neighbor is up forever gonNA wonder would we have wanted if guys weren't allowed to play but they had this guy he was like. Earl Campbell out there just back on his way to that goal, and then he finally puts them in and they got knocked out because of that and it just it's definitely wrong. It's ridiculous. Here's one that something that's wrong to the hope people the P P P thing where the government is funding businesses that have lost money during covert. This is the worst story that I've heard yet that applies to that worse than that guy. There was a guy couple months ago. This is the worst. David T hines he gets four million dollars in covid nineteen relief loans from the feds. For his supposedly ailing South Florida moving business. First thing he bought a super-luxury Lamborghini hurricane at three hundred, eighteen thousand dollars. So he buys the car because he's got the money, but that's not all he did. He was arrested Friday by the way. He also spent thousands of dollars on dating websites. Jewelry enclose along with some stays at some high end hotels such as the fountain blue I mean this guy went off the deep end with the government's money a you've got to believe the best is on that. What's that? You see what he gave his mother what? Twenty five grand cash. Nice you're thinking among, but you've got four million bucks. And mom gets twenty. She's steal you. I hate you here's the good news I mother though they arrested him the pounded his impounded car because he had a hit and run accident and they gave him an ankle bracelet and they let him out on one hundred thousand dollars bail which just happened to have in the bank and he's they're letting him live at his mother's house with an ankle bracelet. So his mother's not only didn't get any shall we got twenty five grand other guys you gotta use that to feed the jerk make around breakfast What, what do you think happened there because one or two choices one is the guy genuinely thought somehow they were never going to catch him and he was going to get away with it or did he think I'm never going to make a million dollars in my life I just WanNa know what it's like and then I'll do the time I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt in hopes that that was the case. You only live once. So I. I hope I hope he buys his mother you know a Maserati or something. So when he goes down to seven eleven and a clandestine fashion at least he's in style this poor guy. All right. So Ben. Back me up on this. We all know about Lou Williams right. The NBA play stripper guy is that not Mike. Adams if my was an NBA player and twenty twenty. Plus going to strip bar I. Don't verse thing you do getting out of the bubble is you go I'm going to try and sneak in a quick run and then come back and nobody'll notice though.

This we move on hold on is that Gretzky stat you guys all know but that the craziest dad and all its or more goals than anyone else has combined points, right? Well more than anyone in the league.

It would appear as if the season were to restart steph curry and Klay Thompson could be out there for the Warriors. Will they know? So you don't get to talk. He has a podcast right now. You know that has a podcast right now. Carol Carol because he misses giving his opinion so much and usually on there.

Billy you sent me a whole new list of looks like for Kirk Chin and there are some really great ones here. Never mind our tournament which we have to update but there are a couple of Pete Carroll ones in here are all of these things that I can read today billy because I've got an awful lot of them and I can't believe how good they all are like.

Were so many here that made me laugh but I want to do them with Kirk Chin. Like Russillo has taken this as a compliment. Ryen Russillo looks like the friend who would stop a bar fight for you. Have the people who he stopped by him. A drink right yeah. Well he's done it. Does Joe Buck looked like a super villains nerdy side kick does Pete Carroll look like a sweet man who begs coffee cakes for his wife sometimes when she sat a long day as a pediatric medical assistant. And when you ask him what his secret ingredient is for his coffee cake to he looks at you and wings and says love there that's great p. Carroll looks like a lot of things and he's a Chameleon. Well he does he look like this. The COP who answers the phone snapping his fingers with a raised arm as if to tell the rest of the precinct to trace the call the kidnapper on the line. I got a bunch of them here and I'm GonNa get to more of them but we really should get out of the way here because billy has got Manny Ramirez News. And there's very little that excites billy more honest to God. It's a weird thing. I don't even understand your infatuation with Manny Ramirez all these years later. How old is he now? And where is he trying to play baseball? Manny Ramirez Dan. Le Carre is forty seven years old and he is trying to make a comeback in the Chinese Professional Baseball League in Taiwan which was the first Professional Bay twelve comeback.

So here's the headline and Stugotz. I'm not kidding you when I tell you that if you told me hey. Dan One headline for the rest of your career. One headline that encapsulates your thirty years carrying about journalism and entertainment and writing about sports. I think it's this headline this headline. Are you ready? Dan lebatardshow dares Miami station to fire him over. Censoring interview about Mangled Penis. I'm GONNA continue reading okay because I don't remember some of the details on this but this seems like a tremendous story like I would. I would read this story every time if this was a headline that ended up on my lap so Dan Lebatardshow got angrier than I've ever from the big lead got anger that I've ever heard him during the local hour on seven nine hundred ticket and Miami Thursday. The issue at hand was the. Dan Interviewed Miami Herald journalist. David Ovalles who wrote a story about how a local woman was going to jail for forty months after illegally performing surgery on a man's penis and M- angling it. Please read the story. This parenthetical as the full context is fascinating and also instructive. Lebatardshow became incensed audio directly. Above when unnamed management at seven ninety? The ticket threatened to pull his show off the air if they kept talking about the story and not about the cubs it was unnamed management. Does learn whiner like I. I wasn't protecting him from anything. The cubs in Miami. They wanted me to talk about the. Oh I guess it was well. It was game seven after the world series. Let's explain I want. I'm not sure he wasn't right now that I think about it but man I was angry. let me see here. I'm GonNa read some quotes here. I'm just so people understand like like what it is that I try to do with radio. And what is that? We try to do a route around here. And there some self serious stuff in here like grinning ear to ear while reading. This is God's and also wincing at what a gas bag. Are you ready? This right now might go to the morning show or might go to music and stuff because we've got someone locally already. Doing what Mike was fearing nationally which is threatening to Yank us off the air if we play it and one. I'm telling you that I value one thing around here. I love you guys. Love you guys and we're in the morning now because of you guys. Nothing matters to me more than you don't control what comes out of my mouth. We've got someone going crazy locally right now saying they're gonNA Yankus off the air if we continue to talk about this and what I'm telling you right now is fire me not only never do that again. But fire me now if you want to control me that way. I don't WANNA get up at nine o'clock in the morning man. I'm doing this for Miami and I'm doing this for seven ninety. The ticket yanked me off the air. Fire me now. Cancel my contract now. You can have your money and you can have your nine o'clock hour and I can get my sleep because this is infuriating. This isn't even happening nationally. This is happening locally. You do not control what comes out of my mouth. You threaten to take me off the air because I'm talking about a story. That was in the Miami Herald Man. Get the Hell Outta here. That's right they did. But it wasn't because of the mangled penis it was. Because I'm a mangled peanuts not because of this story involving the mangled peanuts but then I continued stu gods in super gas baggy fashion now on the ratcheting up the gas bag. Are you reading about to play the son of exiles card? Novak siles mangled penis the son of exile hallmark of the Empire. The son of exiles. This is what parents fled Lebatardshow. Yelped you will not control this. No you will. Not Money doesn't matter to me man. I love you guys. I don't want to be up at this hour now. You're saying going to control what I say at this hour one.

I did this show for free locally because of how much Miami and freedom matters to me you have to be bleeping kidding me man the move to go and Mosul no longer on the local or on that radio station so we ended up losing that battle but in terms of like Goto moves. Your son of exiles is essentially manage eurostepped. It's incredible go. Yeah and you don't hesitate. No well it's a. It's a move. I've grown very confidence with over the a lot of confidence with over the. This is your Dwayne Wade. Kie pump fake in them. Because they're gonNA keep jumping and leaning into it. Got You know how much I love newspapers and this comes from an old old time but the Baltimore Sun had one of the greatest corrections. I've enjoyed reading recently. Because this is what it is.

Here is the correction the images in the spot. The difference feature in the Sunday April twenty-sixth additions were mistakenly the same image and not in fact. Different the Baltimore. Sun regrets the error. Do you realize how maddening that is? If you're someone who cares about these puzzles and you're looking at two identical pictures of you ever played the Game Stugatz. That is that has to make that has to make someone feel like. They're going crazy if they're supposed to spot ten differences in picture and there are no differences and somebody could have spent three hours in front of that thing. Yeah I've never played that game I've I've never. I've never picked up a newspaper. I don't know what you're talking about. You don't understand you. Don't you've never heard of you've got to pictures next to each other. And there are slight differences in one of them and you have to pick out the differences between. That's not a game you've ever seen. I don't have time for those kind of games and I mean I have time for Football Games Basketball Games. I have time for sports. That's what I have time for.

Purchase only at advance auto parts for all the latest headlines and information tune into sports center on. Espn radio all throughout the day. So stugotz I wanted to talk to you about the Patriots. Because I don't know if the betting odds have changed but the last time we checked and some things have changed since then the last time that we check the Patriots were still the betting favourite somehow in the AFC's which made me wonder what the Hell would have to happen to that team for it not to be the betting favourite when their quarterback position seems. Correct me if I'm wrong here. More unproven than any in the League. More mediocre more more awful than any in the league right now. How can they still be the favored under those conditions? Those betting odds state the same so it looks like they've changed with the bills of the slight favourite down to win the AFC East playoff team a year ago. Patriots Lost Brady. Obviously so it looks like it's changed a bit. I would say ballot. Check would have to leave to the fact that he's still there gives people hope you know all right so mike. Greece is with us now on. Espn radio he covers the Patriots What are the reasonable expectations? Mike for that team and for that position. Thank you for joining us by the way. Great Pre to be with you and and I would say there's no expectation and no indication that that I've received that the Patriots have any interest right now in Cam Newton and there's multiple layers to that. I would say the first part of it is they have invested in Jarret stidham their Fourth Round. Pick from last year. And he's showing them enough that they want to see more. That's the first part of it in simple terms and the second part of it is financially what they'd have to do to to even think about bringing Cam. Newton is significant. They're very tight to the salary cap with about less than two million worth of space. So if they even entertain that thought they'd have to move a lot of pieces around and they don't seem to be inclined to even be thinking along those lines right now. What did you think was the most interesting more soul of Brady leaving? Tampa Bay and all the subsequent explanations that he gave so to me. I would say the most interesting thing would be that it's sorta he. He was the leader of that decision. Like he never came back to them and said. Hey this is what I have I would on the market like would you have to offer me. So basically the the idea of being once he started talking to other teams he was gone and it was different than situations in the past where the Patriots have let some of their high profile stars foundational type players go out test the market and then they have a dialogue and sometimes those players come back other times they leave but this was a situation truly where there there wasn't that conversation. Tom was just out the door. Where did the media fail? Where did Bella check fail? Where did the draft process fail that the Patriots Sign Kicker? And nobody realizes until he's already talking that he's got a three percent tattoo. Well th that's that's a long detailed discussion and I would say what. Let's let's break it down here and we're talking about The kicker from Marshall who has a tattoo on his left arm that he is now saying he is removing entirely It's with the three percenters group That some described as a right wing militia group and my understanding is that it was an honest mistake and the Patriots did their due diligence and they truly believe that and so if we take him at his word then that's what it is i. I'm not sure there is a mistake other than maybe like. He was down at Marshall for two years and says it was never an issue. So I think to me it's reflective of how once you come to the Patriots and the NFL stage. The spotlight shines a lot brighter. And now it a story so that's part of it. I mean there's a lot more to it than that but that's sort of how I would break down well. It could be an innocent mistake but that stretches credibility a lot like I understand. You're being objective and you're laying the facts out there as as as what he's claimed but what he claims seems really empty. Like it seems you. That's not the kind of Tattoo one. No matter how flippant you are about tattoos and many people are these days. Just super flippant. That's not something you end up usually by accident and if you do do it by accident. Holy bleep. Is that some bad luck Mike. Well I mean ultimately would it comes down to is. What's in your heart as a person right and unless we know because the people weren't complaining about what was in his heart as a person they were complaining about what was on his arm. But isn't what would be on his arm reflective of that I would say so which is part of the problem which is why he's GonNa controversy on his hands that he does. And and so we drove I think just responsibly. To drill down deeper and say who are you what is in your heart right and I think that's what we're talking about right and I think I think I see where you could look at it and say the explanation doesn't seem plausible. And you can have skepticism. I think that's fair. I also think like to at least give not want to see the benefit of the dope but let's flush it out before we make a final judgment is probably what L. And and I understand but that I guess what my objection would be. This isn't your fault but one of my objections and Bomani Bomani Jones. Wrote a very good article about this. At at the undefeated that attitude that you just articulated is why he wasn't as more difficult questions on the first day and there were no follow ups and the journalism was so flimsy and bogus. Because that's what he says okay and we've come to believe that when the Patriots say it. It's not always the truth and I think I I can definitely I always look from a journalistic standpoint. What could I do better right? And I think it's in that situation sure could could could. I have asked Moore. I put it on myself. Sure I could have. He got asked the question. He gave the explanation. That doesn't mean it's over you're still working on it. That was just the first opportunity to ask those questions. You understand Mike that I'm not taking shots at your work here right you absolutely and to be honest. I look at it like this anything that you say like I respect it like I hold myself to the highest standard and and I always ask myself. What could we do better? I WanNa get to the truth just as much as anyone. Is it over. Now when he says look I'm going to get it covered. I'm GonNa get it removed. It's not even that I'm going to cover it up. I'm going to get it removed. Is that over now? Because there were a number of things I could totally understand. I can understand actually a reasonable oversight that a bunch of NFL cavemen simply didn't know what a tattoo meant. It's just particular this organization as meticulous as you need to be given that you had a murder in your huddle and the tattoos were clues as you've had bad publicity every stretch you know that you more than any team in the. Nfl has to make sure that that's not the mistake that happens on your watch in that region. I think my sense is. They feel confident that they did all their due diligence. Like this wasn't a surprise to them. I would say I think the question was is this over. I don't think so because I think the perceptions out there and now as the young man is set himself like he needs to prove it with his actions right and so to me like we're going to find out what he's all about and what is in his heart by his actions going forward my gears the the real pressing important question eighty six celtics versus ninety seven balls who wins love. It love it. Eighty six celtics wheelhouse thinking to myself in the driveway. Bird Age Johnson Robert Parish. Kevin McHale team. How can I go against the eighty six team? You are so happy to get that question. It was so much easier than thirty talk about that. Thank you for being with us Mike. We appreciate it all right. Guys have a great day. Thanks for having me more sports next. It is time for the movie of the day is brought to you by red box. In honor of Daniel day-lewis his birthday. I present you my three least favorite movies starring Daniel day-lewis no. He's a method actor. He's very serious. He became a cobbler for awhile retired from the industry. My left foot. He was spent months using only his left foot. And real life. A thespian stu gods or you can shove that left foot number three least favorite movies starring Daniel Day. Lewis last of the MOHICANS Mohicans. You put a g in there for some reason. Mohegan deny there's no I did number zoo. The aforementioned my Fultz and the worst movie that Daniel Day Lewis has ever started there will be blood red box as top entertainment when you need it. The most will Smith Martin Lawrence. They are back in bad boys for life. Visit Red Box dot com for all the ways you can watch stugotz. How did you feel? How did the group feel about that conversation with Mike Reese the New England Patriots reporter because Mike Ryan was wincing a little bit about my end of it? What were your thoughts there? Are you talking about the Patriots portion? Where the Celtics Bulls portion the highlight your you al. You obviously as the best question. The one that made him feel most comfortable and the one that got the least surprising answer. Hatred Porter thinks the eighty six celtics. One I thought I think all the guys would agree. I thought it was a fascinating conversation. I think Mike handle themselves very very well my Greece and I think you did a good job of pulling back saying hey. I'm not attacking your work your reporting because I do think he felt like that for just a second so I think that was a nice nice touch by you at a nice job by you but I think that was yeah. I thought it was a very interesting conversation. I thought both of you guys and you yourselves very very well. And their argument to be made on both sides. I happen to agree with you. I mean I don't know that there are arguments to be had on both sides. I don't I I don't believe I mean what does not go ahead explain to me. What's the argument on the other side? Even though you say you're not taking what you're talking about the kicker in the Tattoo Dan it could it could have been. I'm not saying it is. I think a lot of people are saying. Hey it could have been a young kid and it could have been exactly what he says it is. It was a mistake I did something to it was a mistake. I should have done more research. I put the thing in my body and I'm going to take it off because it offends people but did beg for a lot more follow up. I would say I would say that if you're willing to believe that I'd ask you how it is that you felt. If you saw a black guy go into the league with a tattoo of Klansmen or some other symbol and then claim while he's standing up there. Hey I didn't know what it meant. I was unclear. I just ask you just look in yourself on that one. I'm not even telling you what the answer is to that. Just imagine what the reaction would be if a black person had that tattoo. How many people wouldn't be coming out with? Hey maybe it was just a mistake like a kind of said this and it's so very true. It is so so easy to be just a young kid when you're white. It's a little bit harder to be just a young guy on mistakes. When you're black lemieux very clear. I think he knew what he was putting on his body but occasionally it could be exactly that. Hey I didn't know I made a mistake. That's that's all I'm saying so I felt like the uncomfortable. Part of that interview is. Dan kept pressing on. Why aren't the journalists pushing more on this and just taking that explanation as possible reason not pushing that conversation more at least bigger conversation? Look Mike Reese is a beat reporter. He reports facts he is. He is directed to go to the team here. What they have to say the player what he has to say and put that information for people like Dan and you to discuss. He's not an opinion giver. We saw this with Adam schefter earlier in the week where he he felt uncomfortable getting his opinion on it because he is a fact based reported they do different things. And I'm glad that you pull back a little bit on Mike. Because it sounded like you were not attacking. It's not the right word but calling into question. Maybe his journalism when I think the audience and him his job is something that's different. It's an important conversation. I'm glad you and Mike Reese had it. I mean I really and I'm glad you softened everything up I I. My favorite part of that entire conversation was just the way that the weight clearly lifted off of my shoulders. When you stormed into the room with your I mean I find the space where everybody can look at me and said hey maybe eighty six celtics or ninety seven both the Stugatz wheelhouse of let me find the place where Dan's being uncomfortable and unlikable and let me get in here and dance baby back to safety and then the same run back to the shadows and say it's an important conversation. I'm glad I can make jokes all around it and never say anything at all and the shame of it is. This was actually a pretty good opportunity for sports because they're doing very interesting things there. Do you think Bill Belichick is a type of coach? That would tank an entire season Trevor Lawrence because I think anyone looking what they did in the draft in pre agency. They would have some real questions as wait. Are they trying to lose? I don't know if Bill Belichick is cut that way Mike. Greece told us they only had two point two million dollars to spend and that's affecting their free agency decisions in regards to Cam. Newton was conversation about Jameis Winston. Because the league's leading passer just signed a backup deal for one point one million dollars in New Orleans. I think tank in that division Mike as bad as it appears the Patriots quarterback that division so bag searches and put it on the poke at Lebatardshow. Is it even possible to tank better than the other teams the AFC East? Because I don't know that there can be more stinging indictment than the money telling us through God's the money telling you as buffalo has by consensus a strong off season when they never get those because the free agents never want to go to buffalo when. They're stronger than they've ever been in. They appear like a team. That's right on the cost of their just a quarterback away stu gods and and even under those circumstances sixteen lead on the road against the Texans in the playoffs. Great Defense probably the best defense in the entire league. Last year and Buffalo can't be a clear-cut favourite when the Patriots have the worst quarterbacking in the league. Like how is that possible? The belief in Bella check is so seismic and crazy that in no other circumstance in the history of the sport with that have been possible in any vision honest to God. It doesn't even make sense. The Patriots would still be favor. He is the most valuable guy as a coach. The Most Valuable Guy in that division division bad player or anything.

The Sporting Life with Jeremy Schaap

13:52 min | 10 months ago

Jon Pessah, Author

"This is the sporting life on. Espn radio and the ESPN APP. Here's Jeremy Schaap Yogi. Berra was one of the great baseball players of all time. One of the great winners in the annals of sport but he meant more to people than just a great baseball player typically would there was a lot of humor about him and some unintentional philosophy is well now lawrence. Peter is the subject of a new book by our old friend one of the great sports journalists of our time John Pasa. His book is simply. Yogi a life behind the mask John. Thank you for joining US Jeremy. It's my pleasure. John I let me start by saying Yogi Berra's one of those guys and I have like many people tremendous fondness for him and I think An appreciation for him probably more than most people Having known him a little and growing up in New York Being around him. E what more do we need to know about Yogi? Berra that we don't already know. Well I'll tell you I three I did. This book was my I got Yogi and nine thousand nine hundred sixty when I was eight years old and he was a roleplaying outfielder for very strong. Yankee teams very good role player but a rope higher. I use my father's favorite player. My father told me that this was one of the most dynamic baseball players he'd ever seen in his life and that's not usually the way we think we think of Yoga. I mean overshadowed by his persona so I really wanted to go back just at the beginning and just look at this tremendous baseball player and he was so much better and I'm a huge baseball fair. But he's so much better as a baseball player than I ever thought. I mean he was the best player on the best team in baseball history. Well he won those MVP awards when the Yankees were winning all those world series. They won the world series and forty nine fifty fifty one fifty two fifty three he was the MVP in fifty one fifty four and fifty five and this is at a time that mantle was coming into his own he was about to win the triple crown and fifty six. Ted Williams was still doing remarkable things. There was a lot of tough competition in the American league but Yogi Berra was the MVP and three of those seasons. What made him so great. two things one. He was just a tremendous hitter. Right from the start. This guy was twenty one hundred. Rbi to eighty three twenty hitter Out of the catcher slot where the catch was expected. Play defense and to call pitches and that was it and actually for the first year of yogis career There was there was a very very good chance he would have been outfielder. Not a catcher. And it wasn't until Casey stangl came in and realized if I have a hard hitting catcher Then I have something special and brings and Bill dickey fix mechanical problems. With with. Yoga pitchers hated pitching to him in his first two years. get cleaned up the mechanics And Yogi now becomes almost overnight the best catcher in the American league and one of the true talents that I had no idea how he had a near photographic memory of of Baseball. And he could tell you how to get somebody out in. The fourth inning was a man on second that we did it. Four and a half years ago Here's the right pitch and the players. Just you know turn completely turned around because that is an incredible weapon to have plus you as a field. Who's as good if not better than anyone? We're speaking with longtime sports writer and editor. John Pasa his new book is Yogi Life Behind the mask. Biography of Lawrence Peterborough. Probably one of the thirty greatest baseball players ever to live and one of only a few athletes North American major sports history with as many as ten championship rings. But when I think of Yoga John I think about some of the contradictions. You know one of the great athletes of all time but not in an athlete's body right. How did that lead people to misjudge him in the beginning? I think that his body I tell you this too One general one specific part of it literally changes baseball history. The the the general is you you look at him and you know equipment managers. When he walked into his minor league teams would give him a uniform to a ratty uniform because they thought he stayed to try out not that he was part of the team He just didn't look like an athlete. He had a toll person upper body. A short persons lower body Long arm big show's a hit his neck But when he stepped on the field He was just an incredible player. The Guy who was who is supposed to be the greatest judge of talent in part because he could look at a sixteen year old and figure out what it was. GonNa look like these twenty one named branch rickey greatest talent evaluate ever. He takes one look at Yogi and the size and tells them to lose face. You're no more than a AAA baseball player. And I need people who go all the way and so instead of a playing for the cardinals. He's hometown anti war. When the cardinals make the mistake pain from the ground Who who then become the orioles and this drives orioles fans crazy when I tell them that Yogi Berra in their his prime would have been catcher for the Baltimore Orioles He makes this gigantic mistake and he loves joke. Hours Yoyogi especially across the street neighbor. Who literally is six one hundred and seventy five pounds and absolutely looks like a baseball player and is very good but it wasn't Yogi Berra. The other thing. John Speaking with John. Pass up about his new biography of Yogi Berra and as I tried to suggest in our leading your the thing about Yogi bear. It's not just the on the field. Obviously but it's This aura about him and it and I was random a lot I interviewed on a number of occasions and there was this charm in this warmth about him although he could be tough but but people thought he was this guy you know who had this endless stream of unintentionally. Funny one liners and this kind of stuff. It actually interviewing Yogi wasn't easy wasn't somebody who actually fit the way that people people no thought of him right. You know his persona his public thing wasn't the real Yogi. Can you explain that disconnect a little bit and why it exists? Well I mean definitely wasn't Yogi was always A quiet if not shy person the only place. The yogi fell a hundred percent comfortable with on any ball field where he was always a best player and you could see through his life that people who talked for in Joe Garagiola who helped with Yogi ISM. Then it became Phil Rizzuto another. You know very talkative. Person His wife was eloquent Ron guidry later in his life be becomes the whisper and He he was just naturally that way. It was also the youngest of four. Bore isn't a in you know in five kids and then the Talian families fog you know as as most fathers of that era is ruled with an iron fist. And you know I think he learned to be quiet that way. Because you didn't talk until you spoken to. His father was a man of few words and all of the Of the of the kids In in Yogi's family were quiet sorts. But I think to. He faced A lot of discrimination. 'cause he was carrying and he faced a lot of abuse because of his looks because of his physical stature And because sometimes he would you know when he did talk a mangle the language and I think that Yogi just having such an appreciation for how it felt to be looked down upon and he could never bring himself to do that because he felt like and and that's first of all it's rare and people second of all it's really rare among athletes and Yo- gives just this guy who liked and love people and I think people felt that in just all instantly comfortable around him I saw. This must be twenty years ago. There was a there. Aren't a lot of baseball players. Who had one man plays written about them? That were actually performed on Broadway and I saw. I saw the yoga. Show Bengals Ara. I mean one of the great actors of the second. Half of the Twentieth Century Played Yogi. I did a story about saw the play. And you know I think Yogi never saw because you know it took liberties with the real story and a lot of it revolved around his relationship with Dale Dale. His son. Who's been on the show recently and it was about You Know Dale's addiction right all that stuff. His feud with Steinbrenner. Mostly the reason that And it was Carmen And unfortunately this Carmen does yes. I'm sorry Unfortunately this story didn't make it into the book. I end up having to cut sixty pages the book. But there's a terrific story of Kozara and you're right coming to Yogis House and talking about it and our figures. Hey I'm from Brooklyn I'M A. You know rebelled Italian. We're GONNA and they did hit it off but Carman Was against it from the start. And they have a second meeting at his museum where they're sitting there drinking vodka together telling stories about where it was like growing up during the depression. And you know if it was Yogi they you know they would have blast it Common walks in is very polite. Very nice you know Carmen. She was a charming woman And very politely and said I'm sorry but we're not going to endorse this. I gotTa Tell Ya I. It's funny I was. I was interviewing bank desire about the play and he was great and he's the only guy can think of who played two famous. Yankees in two different In two different productions about sports. Wow you got me on this one. What's the other one he did? Well I got him to. He didn't know was George. Halas in the remake of Brian saw. Oh and of course George. Halas played right field for the keys before Babe Ruth he was one of the right fielders in one thousand nine hundred nineteen before the founding of the NFL. I just had to throw that in there John. But as usual you you've done a spectacular job with the book. I didn't know that there was much more I could know or would want to know about Yogi. But you've certainly achieved that and he is such an iconic figure new such a great player and I think the book is a great service to to baseball fans sports fans and Yogis more than that of course wise Yogi more than that again. It comes down to his. Humanity was so accessible Advertisers Love them because people just looked at Yogi and and instantly light and trusted them. And as you know trust is advertising advertising goal he was also just. He was walking history. I mean the man lived through the depression and World War. Two the the the baby boom D- Moved to the suburbs. He was one of the first television stars. He was He did movies. Movie Reviews He wrote books. There's a great little museum in Montclair New Jersey about him. I mean this guy you know. Ninety years from you know from the beginning to end just lived phenomenal life and and with that Captives humility always just feels like a man of the people which basically is what he lives. even through all these incredible achievement That's a unique combination that I think that's why people are drawn to him. And you said not. Just not just Ron Guidry also Kelly trip. Uk basically his he chauffeurs. I mean He. He was friends with rebukes ball. Who was an all American quarterback in the NFL? They would go up to umass. And watch their sons play. Football Together Him and his wife and Carmen and Yogi they were. I mean you look at them. And they were so different. Computer is the prototype athlete. You know what is probably about six two hundred? Eighty five hundred ninety pound quarterback good looking and and and his best friends Yogi Berra and they they you know he lives in neighboring Bloomberg New Jersey. And they did lots of things together. John Passes. New Book is Yogi of life behind the mask John. It's always a pleasure. Thanks so much for coming on the show Jerry. My pleasure listening On things it'd be out of books and prioritizing when the taking new things hopefully early next week barnes and noble is probably the place to go. If you're out of books they sold out in the first day A lot of interest in baseball. I you know I'm GonNa gives Yogi and baseball. A lot of credit is a giant hole in my life where baseball is always on. And there's no baseball and it's just since I've been four years old and I'm sixty eight so that's a long time and and it's just missing and I think people are hungry for baseball and and Hungary to feel good and you'll use just a such a feel-good Carson.

This is Dan Patrick. Well, we did it well, yeah, we all did it. I did it more than everybody else, but we all did it. Yeah, breaking news. Let's not make this about us. It's about you, the listener and the viewer. We won the Marconi award the highest award you could win in this business. So second time we've been able to win it and humbled by it, and congratulations to all involve, particularly those behind the scenes who do this every single day and do it unselfishly. And of course, the danettes is well. So wonderful night last night, watching football, all of a sudden I get taxed and says you one. And then I realized that I didn't show up again for this award. And this started a couple years ago. Now this is the national association of broadcasters and the Marconi award is the highest award you can win. And I didn't think I was going to win, but you know, it's great to be nominated whenever I show up. I don't win, no matter what it is. I don't win. And at the time we were tied on our budget. And they didn't want me to take a couple of days off, so I didn't go and then we won. So what was that six years ago? Yeah, thought there and then got nominated to other times didn't win and then got nominated this year again. And I said to paulie, do we have a backup plan? If I, if I win, I just don't want him to think. I don't care because I probably care more than I need to and I should. And I said, you know, we need somebody to accept the award. And I mentioned that maybe one of my students in Orlando where where where this was held, the awards ceremony, the damn Patrick school sportscasting may be one of those guys could throw on us, you know, tie and Glover there and accept it. So paulie goes, I got an idea. Yeah, polling. So at the NBA awards down in Orlando, they have like performers, radio performers, guys who have women have very hits Nick fraud as a friend of the show, and he won American idol about five years ago. He was down there performing. So we reached out the Friday Onny and said, hey, if we win, would you run up stage and accept the award? Now we were trying. To clear this with the people at the NABC Marconi awards. Never got a hold of him. So I gave we gave Nick the green light to run up on stage hoping he wouldn't get tackled by security and he went up there for us and he, we don't have the results of the speech, but the American idol winner picked up throw force. And today's is friends with Nick Friday. High school? Yeah. And he reached out to him and said, look, if you go up there, here's a couple of things to say. I don't know what he said, but you know, we're waiting to maybe hear from Nick. Yes. The I team has learned that we have not been able to reach Friday on because he was out celebrating with our award all night. That's sorta premier radio parties. Those more Marconi parties, famous crazy. Yeah, crazy Vanity. Fair party. Yeah, I get it. It's the same. Like just like the and you know the Oscars, just a radio version of that. All right. Well, it was great night and certainly reflective of all the great work here that we've done over the years and certainly the other guys on, you know, the danettes as well. L. so my thanks and basically Brian secret. Oh, no. Now I'm just that your speech that would have been my speed you think today on LA radio, he's lamenting is another Marconi loss? No, because he's such a nice guy. You can't help, but like Ryan Seacrest even if you don't want to like him when you're around him and I was around him when I was at the Olympics, you can't help it like, and I don't think he's lamenting last. I looked Seacrest doing well. It's still very, very well very well. Yes taught Now Sean Hannity. Delilah demanded a recount that's not very good spor. No, it's not. It's not. I think Hannity was involved in some other things last night. Yeah, the other things to worry about then the Marconi awards. Yes, paulie, I wonder though Seacrest rich guy. He probably has a lot of mantles in his house. Yes, we'd probably numerous mantles. He's got room. He's got a lot of awards. I'll bet if he wants the Marconi you'll own it. Yes, I would. If it'll help him with his status with the Kardashians or whatever he needs. I'd be more than happy to help him. All right. Eight, seven, seven, three DP show Email address DP Dan, Patrick dot com. And to meet Friday. We also got a great guest list here. Bob euchre is gonna join us the legendary broadcaster. If you don't remember how big Euch was, you know if you Google Bob euchre just to he was his famous as John Madden. He had his own sitcom. He would be on Johnny Carson's show all the time just telling jokes, he wasn't. It wasn't a good baseball player, but he was great at telling you how bad he was baseball player and a comedian. Miller lite commercials of major league and UK has been broadcasting brewers games. I think for forty eight years, the brewers have made the playoffs five times. So he'll join us coming up a little bit later on, Greg Olsen Carolina Panthers tight end is the on the injured list right now. But we'll talk about the Panthers Panthers signing Eric Reed, and he had the collusion case along with Colin Kaepernick, but Panthers under new ownership went out and got Eric Reed who should be employed, Eric Reid's should. Employed before calling Kabir, Nick doesn't mean capper. Nick shouldn't have a job at Eric Reed should be starting in the NFL. He's twenty six. He's a very good player. Trent Dilfer will join us former NFL quarterback NFL network analyst and just where we are in the quarterbacking situation here with college with these kids. Now, in how entrenched part of this to getting these kids ready to play in college and you're seeing this now where if your junior senior in college, your job is tenuous because you get these kids coming in as a five star freshman, you had this Clemson, we've had this, you know, at Ohio State, and it's it feels like this is the new wave where you're bringing in these kids as freshman, and you know you're going to be transferring when your junior senior to play, maybe one more year. We'll talk to Trent Dilfer about that. Also, I want Trent to tell us what he seeing in Jared Goff now that we haven't seen before. So Trent does a great job in breaking down. Quarterback, so he'll join us coming up a little bit later on your phone calls are always welcome will come up with a poll question. Got a stat of the day. We say good morning to our radio partners. Thank you for all your support through the years. And I truly mean that today, especially today and hopefully you celebrate this more Coney award with us direct TV audience network channel, two, thirty nine. All of the great people do this every single morning. Thank you very much in the NBC sports network who has been very loyal partner of ours for years. Now, you never know when a team's going to take that jump from being very good to being great to being a Super Bowl team. We're four weeks into the season, and I know we tend to overreact, but the Rams certainly look like they're ready to take that leap. Now I still have questions about the defense and I'm sure the Rams still have questioned about the defense, but that offense were seeing maybe the reincarnation of the greatest show on turf and it just happens to be the Rams last night. Jared Goff showed everyone that maybe he's taken that. Next step, and I've talked about this with quarterbacks. You had the initial wave of success defenses then get a book on you, and then all of a sudden, what do you do after that? Jared Goff came in and did not have success in fact, whispers of being a bust. And then all of a sudden Sean McVay comes you and he can be the quarterback whisper. I don't care if he's in his head in his helmet saying whatever he's saying, Jared Goff is executing the game plan. And last year we saw progress. And then all of a sudden we looked at and said, maybe maybe he is better than Carson Wentz. Maybe he will be better than Carson Wentz maybe it's not, you know, Jared goff's going to be a bust. It's different now. Now he's got weapons there, but he is a legitimate star with what we saw last night. The ability to throw guys open is really important with quarterbacks when you take the next step. Because if a guy's open you hit him. But when you throw a guy open, that's different. You got girly. I think Robert woods is more one of the more underway. Aided players in the game. Brandin cooks, you got Cooper Cup, the defenses banged up a little bit, but that Rams offense looked so potent last night that it might not matter. They didn't get off to a heart hot start member when the Rams got to Los Angeles, they were boring. They didn't win, but even worse in Los Angeles, she can't be boring. They finally got rid of Jeff Fisher and Sean McVay comes in. And now you have l. as most exciting team most entertaining team not most entertaining football team most exciting team, and that is key when you win and you're exciting. When you win, you got star power. There they look great, the uniforms look great. It was a nice coming out party Thursday night FOX in town with Troy and Joe buck and they put on a show last night. Yes, mclovin. So you're saying if I offer the Los Angelinos tickets to the Lakers and tickets to the Rams, they're going to the Rams. No, yeah. I know it's still Lakers down, but that doesn't mean that they're not the most entertaining team dodgers do. It's still, yeah, dodgers down as well. But with the Rams of the most entertaining team right now, because there is the possibility that they're the best team. The Lakers aren't the best team. The dodgers aren't the best team dodgers disgracing scrap and try to make it into the playoffs. The Lakers may be a seven or eight seed this year, but the Rams the lamb Rams are legit. They are the mclovin club. Remember we were talking about moving up the hours of the Lakers games and you said the traffic would be a problem. People could not get to that game last night on Twitter at kept seeing like that was kind of empty at the beginning. That's a real issue. Well, five, twenty local start, but you have to do that for Thursday, Thursday night football. So can you really move up NBA considering that? Well, we wondered about that with the Lakers that you're, you know, we got treat. LeBron all of those games playing in Cleveland and Miami. You got to see him on the west coast. You would get to see him east coast. We got to see all those games. You started seven, seven thirty. Now you're going to be playing at ten ten thirty east coast time. You're going to be getting highlights the LeBron midwest and east coast probably west coast. You get the game, obviously. But I wonder if the NBA looks at this and says, can we get LeBron maybe earlier, can you? Can you do like a nine o'clock start? Can you? Can you do something that where the east coast is going to be able to enjoy LeBron James? Because that's the team everybody is talking about, yes, he LeBron flex schedule. Yes. Yes. Just him specifically wherever he's playing like, oh, no, you can bump up. Just absolute Bron what time he wants to play? Yeah, fritzy. Then you've got fans with tickets having to leave work like three, three thirty in the afternoon. Have any shot of getting their opening. Typically take sepulveda's Dan, you gotta take. Go left Fritz. He'll tell you how to get there back roads there, the harbor freeway, the one ten you'll get once. Got a sandwich at that deli fifteen years ago. Yes. Mclovin. I was gonna say, if you take last Yannikas story, different joke yesterday, like, oh gosh, it always comes down to sepulveda's Lousiana. And they're just a few of those exits that you're always talking about the sepulveda's pass. Yep. Oh, Dan, you haven't done that many times when when we all leave a whole of the hotel or the airport with fritzy, you see that Chinese food. I know I went there three times in one thousand nine hundred palace and play. I know we we, we drove by there. We were gonna go meet some friends and and fritzy takes pictures. He took a picture of the session one pallet. I ordered from there so much that one time I forgot one thing and the guys did back to me on the phone is that no dumplings. Embarrassing dumplings this places on a drastic hill. It's at the bottom of the hill lived about hundred and fifty yards up the hill. He could see it, but he still made the guy delivered to his house and walk up the hill. I've got things to do. I'm, you know, I'm in my actually. I don't wear my underwear, but I'm in my torn Elway journal. Write to go wandering around. Let them bring it. The Dan Patrick show brought to you by truecar car. Shopping can be confusing terms like dealer price, list price and invoice truecar shows you what other people paid for the car you want. So you recognize a good price when you're ready to buy new or used car, visit truecar and enjoy more confident car buying experience one hour until we have the second annual quarterback draft two years ago this week, fritzy shocked the NFL world with is number one, overall, pick number one. Pick in the Dan Patrick show draft. I am impressed with what I've seen the last two weeks, especially last night. Carson wins. He was very Peyton Manning with the way he was communicating and controlling the offense. And we. Okay. Now you get the quarterback for five years that that that's, you know, pretty much the parameters of this. You start right now with this quarterback who is going to be the number one overall, pick this year? Just fritzy change it up and go, Jared, Goff fritzy we'll have the number one pick. He's earned the right after being mocked. Two years ago is what have you done for me lately could get a little interesting. I know, I know. And that's what you did with Carson Wentz. He'd only played two games and you jumped right in head first? Yes. Mclovin. So this would been totally different if we'd had it on Wednesday. I think. Different after one which I said yesterday, that's ridiculous that we're so short term. We could have held this yesterday day of the game prior to the game, and I think it would have been different. I don't think fritzy I don't think Jared Goff would have been one of the top five quarterback stake last night's performance was a game to ya. Yes, it was. Yeah, Paul, Two years ago in our draft, Aaron Rodgers went fourth overall. Fourth, who were the two? Well, he was thirty two at the time, right? And you got him for five years, right? But you'd think he'd go even higher, you think he might be a one guy now who are the two quarterbacks other than Carson Wentz that went above Aaron Rodgers and our draft mclovin and you took them two years ago this week that I take Russell Wilson junior. The third did one spot before Aaron Rodgers. Okay. And the two spot Pearl off to Cam Newton. Okay. Those guys might be up there again this year too? Yeah, at their age. I get him for the next five years. So that's coming up in an hour. We're going to have our second annual quarterback draft and some interesting picks Cody Kessler went last year or two years ago. River Simeon led off the third round. Yeah. Fritzy when Trevor siemian. Yes. So the two years ago, Jared Goff went last in the fourth round. I'm gonna guess he's moved up considering ESI has Jameis Winston second round pick where was Marcus mariota. See, I took him in the end of round three Luca. It was a value pick value. Pick fits magic at and you're the no. And you're the no. My God save. Maybe if it was for the next five games, not the next five years. I, we'll take a break. Trent Dilfer will join us coming up. Things talked to him about including Jared, goff's performance last night. Why this big turnaround, which aired Goff aside from you have some weapons there. You got an offensive line, which is really the key, I think, but Gough given time and he looked awesome last night. All right, seventeen. After the hour, this is the award-winning Dan Patrick show.

Seven eastern kickoff, twenty Sunday night only on NBC. All right. Mclovin. What do you have or waiting for Trent Dilfer who will join us coming up? Okay. Can I start totally out of left field and then we'll get to some real ones Bob euchre's on in our three who is the most iconic baseball announcer of your lifetime. And I have a list from Bleacher report that has you at sixteen. Eighteen and decided to say something names ahead of a Marty Brennaman, Jack buck, Phil, Rizzuto, Harry Carey, Harry callous. Ernie Harwell in Scotland and VIN scully's number one on this list, the list is actually Scully one, Harry callous to and then Mel Allen is up there, but is Bob Yuka right in that list of the most iconic voices a baseball? No, I don't think he's an iconic voice because the brewers weren't very good. So you didn't hear his voice. He is a celebrity and his his best play by play, or is most known play-by-play came in the movie major league, but he was in has been a celebrity for a long long time. So I don't think you think of Bob euchre as a baseball announcer, even though he's a great baseball announcer, you think of been scholar, you think baseball announcer Mel Allen baseball now, sir, who's the most iconic of that group has been Scully and has been, or is Harry Carey sneak in because of the office of l. that he's a character. I don't either. He wasn't a great broadcaster. You know, later in his life earlier in his life. He was Jack brickhouse. I mean, there's so many great ones. Marty Brennaman so hall. Of Famer. Phil Rizzuto was a character. Yes. Yeah. Let's to say how how much of this is just based on where you grew up because as soon as you say, baseball announcer, the first person that comes to mind for me is Phil Rizzuto, but I don't know that he would ever make that list, but that's growing up as a child and learning the game. That's who I remember always hearing he's fourteen on this list. So he did make some though. It did. Yeah, yeah, polling. I would go Jek book from the scope of how the reach of the cardinals back in the day on KOMO Molex their cardinal fans all over the central United States, not just in Saint Louis. You can go to Arkansas all over the place and you even as a cub fan, I was respected Jack buck. Will you had Saint Louis? You could pick up Campbell lex wwl w with the reds with Marty Brennan at night, you could pick up a lot of these radio broadcasts. And I think that that that's where you had this expansion where you became a cardinal fan and you could have grown up in Tennessee or Braves, you know, when they had Ted Turner, when he created TBS your. Able to watch your your favorite team, you didn't have to be in that city? Yes. Mclovin. One thing that changed things was you with sportscenter. You would highlight Harry Kallis calls calendar. I was so proud is a Philadelphia in to hear you say that. So we got to know a little bit of the different voices through sportscenter. All right. We'll talk to Trento for join us coming up a poll question. Mclovin Woody hub. We get to Trent. Okay. We have Rams versus the field, and we have a Marconi related one that I can save, but we could start there who do you take Rams or the rest of the NFC as a favorite. So if you're four weeks after four days, look like who's going to get home field over them. So someone's going to have to go to l. a. and win in the playoffs. Also to factor in Garoppolo being out for the rest of the season, what that means for San Francisco, they were supposed to be an aide. Maybe nine win to in Seattle might not be as good as advertised in Arizona is not that good. The Rams could end up with thirteen or fourteen wins the way there. The they're built, certainly the offense defense like, I got questions, but you got a lot of time to figure that out. Trent Dilfer former NFL quarterback ESPN analyst in of Super Bowl champ with the ravens kind enough to join us Trent. Good morning. Thanks for joining us. How are you. I'm doing great. Dan yourself, I'm doing all right. I don't know how impressed I should be with the Rams. I know that we do overreact, but I'm curious as a former quarterback who played at a high level and you look at Jared Goff. What is the difference now with Gough as opposed to two years ago or even last year. Well, I think it's any time you're that perfect blend of talented, quarterback rape, play, caller skill, people around you. You know a lot lot of pieces around you. You're going to see this progression of a quarterback and the confidence come out. I think that's the biggest thing is total command, you know, soul coughing. So what he's doing, he's a very, very gifted player. It really bothers me when I hear people say just system guy like they minimizes talent. He's a peer. Pure passer has been since he was seventeen years old. I got to coach villa leave, eleven. I is tremendous feel for the passing game is playing of arm talent. You can threaten all areas of the field. He can throw it all. You can throw guys open. He can layer versus. I mean, he's really nothing he can't do with the football. I think it cow. He didn't have the total command of the position because of protection schemes. And now McVeigh and the protection plans they have in place and all the tools. They give him at the line of scrim. Image. He can play the game on his terms. He can get through the plays that he wants to get to. He can get himself protected. They have a great running game, obviously. And I, I think what you're seeing is is the fullness of a guy when you put the right pieces around them. I've, I've been really impressed like everybody else has this year, but I was impressed last year for a second year guy that had a rough rookie year to build to grow in the physician and win a bunch of games and be highly productive. That's what you're looking for in your quarterback. What would be your big concern with the Rams. Defense, probably. I mean, they're loaded personnel wise, but they play this that this has always been waged deal that he plays his style, a defense that when a team can attack the inside of the football field when they can get you when they can get a skill players mashed up on linebackers when they can get big plays against them, that that defensive scheme has a ten tendency to get gashed. But I don't, you know, they're gonna be playing from the lead. So with the lead so much. And like you just mentioned before I came on their division is so poor. I don't have a whole lot of concerns for them in the regular season. They don't come down to playoff football, and if they're built for playoff football healthy, they are at the end of the year and whether they can. You know, I think one thing you see the Rams is yes, they will run the ball and girly gets a lot of touches, but they definitely wanna throw it down the field like what they want to do more than anything else is great chunk plays in the passing game. I think when you get into playoff football. Ball, and if you have to go on the road and place them where bad weather, you gotta be stubborn with your running back. And are they willing to be stubborn with getting girly the ball and situations when they normally wanna throw it? How concerned would you be if you're a Vikings fan today? I'd be concerned, but I'm definitely not an early season panic guy anymore. The one thing I learned the last four or five years is September is still the preseason. You can. You can lose it in September, but you can't win it. I don't think they've lost it yet. Yeah. Yeah, they're, they're behind the eight ball little bit with last night's loss, but teams are still learning in September. Now with the limited off season practice with as little as starters playing the preseason. We see this every year and I've made the mistake of knee jerk, reaction and September. You really can't. Teams are just starting to figure out who they are. I think are Tober is more telling than September, but I would not panic as Viking fan. They're well coached. There are lots of good players. They've been there done that. I think they'll correct things have gotten in trouble this point. I think they'll be a contender by the end. Nine. Oh, that you've learned your lesson. You said over the last couple years, which leads me to the patriots, the patriots after a one, and to start at the patriots. Loose of the dolphins dot dot, dot, finish that sentence. I'd be very concerned, but I would write them off. They don't look the same, but they are getting that open back. They will grow offense. Ably I can see them trying to run the ball or bit more bothered me. The other night was not Bill to convert on third and short. You know, they're one of the better third short teams the league in the past. I think they'll fix those things with coach scar Nekia their offense and wind coach. Again, they're the team. You can never write off because they're all about development. They're all about how they are weak, nine more than what they are week, two, three, four. So their history alone would be would make me say, I would still give him a very long leash even if they're to lose the dolphins talking to Trent Dilfer former NFL quarterback also contributes to the NFL networks, Thursday night pre-game show with the Soling science segments. If I said you can have a quarterback for the next five years. We have a draft coming up next hour. And you could you could you could pick any quarterback and you get him at his current age, but you're getting for the next five years. You have the number one overall pick and you would take our, oh, well, hardest questions right now. I just doing this with Ryan russillo the other day I probably go with went and that's hard. I mean, there's there's seven, eight, good options, but I'd probably go with went. Would you take Aaron Rodgers at age, thirty four if you had him for the next five years. Probably not. And that was the one that probably not. This is the age. I mean, he's obviously one of the greatest of all time. He does things that you know literally make your drought, John drop every time you watch him play. But I again, there's this is one of the hardest questions at all football right now. And there's really no wrong answer between seven eight, nine guys, but I would probably go Carson one. Explain what you're doing with the NFL NFL players association the exclusive trading card partner there. What's the contest out? Yeah, maybe America I've been doing this for four years dance, really cool they every year they do Super Bowl, kid reporter initiative. So kids go out and buy their trading cards over the country. Some of the cards have a coat on the back. You enter that code. If you win, you get to go to the Super Bowl media night with me. I coach him up on that. Ask questions that go around to the boost. They get front of line and get to ask these players really cool questions. It's been. It's been a thrill for me to watch the joy in these kids spaces that they've been able to do it. But the surprising thing that's come out of it. It is you've been the media night a million times. These players are kind of done with it. You know what I mean? There's two hundred people at their booth. There's all these weird questions, but when they see the kid, they lied up. They love engaging with the kid. The kid ask some great questions. The player loves the kid loves it. It's been one of the coolest things I've been able to do in my post career with any America, and I just love the initiative and I love doing it every year. You can go to Panini kid reporter dot com for more details only view with this Trent because I know you're involved in these seven on seven and eleven on eleven and all these camps there. And these kids coming out of high school going into college. They're ready to play right away in these five star recruits. We just saw this with Clemson where you got Trevor Lawrence who's coming in and Kelly Bryant who's been, you know, a decorated starter at Clemson as a senior. You know, he, he's transferring. Now the, I guess the ability for these kids. Comprehend what they need to learn in college at that early of an age. And now we're looking at juniors and seniors where you might be expendable at that position, DEA sea. This is a new wave where the five stars are coming in and for two years or three years maybe. And then after that, you got another five star coming in and he might be expendable. Yes, I do think it's going to be a trend. Quarterbacks are just getting better every year. Think of it this way globally that this is the really kids now, it's been the first time in the history of football. Were these kids when they were eight, nine, ten years old could find as much quarterback information as you could possibly ever want out there between private quarterback coaches watching Amazon prime, Tom Brady, or Jared Goff in the Rams or everything we do at the Lille Levin will your eight, nine, ten, eleven years old. You have access to every bit of quarterback information you could ever possibly want. Then you're throwing a football, you're playing in seven on seven, you're playing in the fall, you're being trained privately. You're you're, you're learning curve has been excel A-Rated so much. Well, now you add all the talent. Now you're adding also the biggest strong toughest kid. Now playing court. Most athletic kids playing quarterback. It's kind of. The perfect storm where every year we go around the country and we evaluate about seven hundred fifty, two thousand quarterbacks, and we see now we call it the eleven, we do twenty four guys goes to twelve, but we see fifty guys every year fifty to seventy five guys that are so much better than I ever or that Tony Romo will ever was or 'cause we have all these quarterbacks come out and join us on the tour and they go, are you kidding me? These kids are so much better than I was. And these are pro guys that play twelve fifteen years the NFL. So you're just seeing waves of quarterbacks in high school. I live in Texas. Now I go to high school football games on Friday night and every week I go to game and I see a quarterback that was better than me. I mean, it's crazy how many good quarterbacks are. So you're gonna see every year. These colleges get somebody that has a chance to be really, really good. But who is playing now that you saw in highschool where you went, these got star written all over him or I'm surprised that he's got. Starving all over. Oh gosh, I can go down. I mean, eighty five percent of the power. Five quarterbacks are lead. Eleven guys twenty to the NFL early, eleven guys. I mean I remember seeing Sam darnold play high school basketball. That's how we found them high school basketball tape because he broke his ankle is junior year. We had him out of the camp and he might have thrown thirty balls and I looked over my personal assistant. I looked at Jordan Palmer. I said that kid's gonna plan the NFL. I mean, we see that Trevor Lawrence first time we saw him when he was a freshman high school where like that kid's gonna play in the NFL. Justin feels the first time we saw him back is gonna play in the NFL, Josh Rosen, oh gosh, Josh Rosen. When we saw him as a tenth grader, that kid's gonna play in the NFL. I mean, we see these kids at tenth eleventh grade and sometimes you just know. I mean, there's this no doubt be one. They're going to go to a great high, get coached well played, good people. They're going to be highly recruited. They're going to go to good place in college. You now have a long leash, meaning they're gonna give it. They're going to be given a chance. Chance to fail learn from their failure come back to succeed. I I would say are hit rates really, really high just because we get to see them relative all the other quarterbacks in the country. But is there going to be room for all these quarterbacks in the NFL. That's that's a great. This is going to be the most interesting draft. You can start this conversation right now because you have Herbert lock, Steadham Greer McSorley, who am I forgetting forgetting somebody all these kids are big time NFL quarterback cows, but there's no place for them to go and this year's drought. So to stem stay in school is Herbert stay in school because if it's lock and mcsorely and Greer coming out only is there is a room for more than three old Finley at North Carolina State. I mean, there's a lot of guys are really, really talented and they're just may not be enough seats for them to play in the NFL and all the good thing is some of them may get drafted later than they should. You know, two years ago, you might have been a top six pick. Now you're going mid to late first round. You get through to sit for a couple of years. I still think that's the best formula. If you're able to sit for a little while and watch and learn like Patrick Mahomes. So there's gonna be situations like that too. I'll say this if you're. Doc Prescott and Dallas better start playing better, start playing better. There's a lot of guy better start playing better because there's guys coming up that can take their jobs in a heartbeat, just like you're seeing in college football. Great, too busy with you.

Yes, bowling, Dan, you remember Trent Dilfer we just had him on, yeah, for NFL quarterback ESPN NFL network about four years ago. He dropped this white hot truth. You cannot lose games in the NFL and still win. Find anyone who's going to argue with that. That's true. It's absolutely true. Yeah, you know what? He doubled down in the last segment. He dropped this. You can lose it in September, but you can't win it and I checked. You cannot win the Super Bowl in September. It's only played in January or February is never been played September right season as that's what my research shows. Okay. Cannot win it in September. Okay. Ever. You can lose it in September, but you can't win it right. If tried to move it up and it interferes with baseball's pennant races and it's getting ready for playoff, be too much on top of each other. Yes, actually, you actually take you can't lose the Super Bowl in September either. You could just lose your chance to get their to boom way in the strike shortened year. The one where that kicker for the rest are you really going to do this to Trento for trail? I thought it was a great appearance, patron Dilfer, but argue with try to argue with his, I'm not arguing with it. Nah games in the NFL and still went like, there's no way the Vikings can win that game last is because they already lost brutal. Brutal me. It's a meet Friday. We just won a big award, Tony Friday. If we didn't think he had a sense of humor, we wouldn't tea's like, do we know he has a sense hope that he does so he can come on to get at some point. Well, we're gonna find out. We will gonna find out his sense of humor. When you say Trent, would you like to? Oh, really? I'm sorry, you can't. You can't lose it into timber. You can't win it in September. Yes, mclovin if would probably on. He said that young quarterbacks have access a lot of YouTube and see the Tom Brady thing is that really good? Create like a like a great quarterback seeing and a video I. Oh, okay. I'm good areas how they're so good. I, what he's saying is that you have so much information. You have quarterback coaches, personal quarterback coaches, there's so much information. There's how to videos there. I, I'm not gonna take him to task with everything. He said here. Yes, there is no question that YouTube and things like that are an unbelie, invaluable resource of education for stuff like that. And whether it's your a kid playing youth sports, and you want to learn how to throw a football or your forty year old guy trying to figure out how to replace this light switch in your house is the very first thing I do is go to YouTube, watch a video or two on how to do something, and then I go do it in my house so there. But I feel like watching Tom Brady, all access is not gonna. Like that's one thing to actually do it on the field, but I could be absolutely wrong. Yes, I've watched those same videos that seed wise on, I still can't figure it out. You can't even use a broom have gotten most books for dummies. Fixing the light bulb for dummies and all that just can't get it whipped up. Did you guys realize that the long snapper for the Vikings. Lost the tip of his pinky. Last night Kevin, McDermott he, he, he got his finger sewed up, and he came back into the game. She got caught in the helmet in Los, his pinky. Last night, the the tip of his pinky. Last night. I, I'm assuming that affects you as a long snapper. If you missed the, you're missing the tip of your pinkie finger there. So they just cap it the so it together the best they can. I have no idea. I, I don't. I don't know what it looked like. I 'cause we always think Ronnie Lott when when Ryan, but they just chopped his finger off, didn't. They of the tip of Rani's finger off. They were going to the playoffs and Ronnie Lotte headed damage, almost crushed pinkie finger and they said it was exposed in the nerves and he would not be able to play with it even if they covered it. So he said, you know, take a little off the top income, but it's legendary for Ronnie. Yes, it is. This is gonna be the greatest long snapper story of all time if you. Yeah. Now we know who is, you know his name now he's famous, but if you're around offense, lineman or defensive linemen Mike, they got fingers that like our turn signals like they, they're just in directions where they shouldn't be in none of a match, and you're just looking at these mangled hands here. You're going out. David deal when he came in and he's got one of those, Anthony moon has one of those. I'm curious. Why would you would have your fingers exposed at all? Like is there a way to protect your hands where you know it's more collective and and you might not be able to grab, but I'm curious if you're not allowed to hold that if I have something protective for you, you can't have mitts, but I'm curious about that with some of these mangled hands. I mean, they're brutal. I, what's the poll question mclovin. Okay. We have one for in-house. What's better? Winningham are koneohe getting emanated misery, nominated. Hammond hated your eminence. Or I was going to say, we have quarterback draft coming out. Should we ask the audience who their number one pick is or if we give the options, is that giving away too much to our competitors in the room? No, that's fine. If you want to do that fell put five guys. So would I rather win the Marconi or be nominated for sports EMMY? Is that what you said? Yes. That's where we're at in two thousand eighteen. I'd rather win the Marconi award. You know, it's, it's, it's the highest we're radio show. I, it's the highest award that we can win, then I can win nominee for sports. EMMY is great. It'd be nice to win one, but and that would be great as a TV show. But we we started as a radio show and we're, we're true to that. That's my true love is doing a radio show the TV aspect of it. All it is is just cameras that let you see what goes on at a radio station or radio show. That's really what this is. We just let you behind the curtain or fritzy likes to say, we like to show you. How do you make the sausage we like to show your sauce? Yeah, it's show this so people. All right. It's the second annual quarterback draft. It's coming up in about ten minutes. Also, Greg Olsen Carolina Panthers tight end Hannah storm call the game last night on Amazon will join us, and we're getting hoped to hear from the great Bob euchre is well final two hours coming. Yup. Football season is here and no one covers football like podcast, one sports, and we've got you covered on a daily basis with Dan, Patrick rich Eisen. This might be just a walk in the park RJ bells dream preview and Ross Tucker's fantasy feast podcast. They're just creating more work for me at this point.

Yeah so it was on facebook so I took it seriously and I went through all the bands of posted and I picked three that I liked. Oh good so. They're all a little bit different since going to be fun. I don't know you guys. You guys decided. This is a band called Jack. The joker I liked that I liked the name Coleman or the song's called brutal behaviour. We're GONNA be right back to talking about Meatloaf Dini rock and roll circus free. That exactly SACRA saw Scott shows still come to a face to truly new soon. I'm a grab grab Bernie. Partly I'd say Matt Talk Truck side June a breath fucking jet trump castle doing took final straw food. Jack Joker a brutal behavior and that is that song that's appropriate title for that Song because they go to a lot of different places there. The name of the album is not Mars. Volta Mooresville Volt. I like like everything. They've named her. Jack the joker. It's it's got a lot going on. Brutal behavior would be a good name for a band to. We cannot come up with a name for my batch ricky. We are constantly arguing in you. Know because you jared wants to call the ban twenty thousand. Metal Dixon like we'RE NOT METAL. Yes we are dicks. But we're not metal the rocky Cox often want you to call it. The twin and digs man could be awesome was a jazz band. That would be the best name the swinging Dick Right. That's pretty good. It's swinging I okay guys. So let's get into it tonight with this whole meat loaf and we're not talking about your mom. This is not your mom's Meatloaf Oh okay now. We all love her. Mommy love but his arm. Ause me love. This is the artist known as meat loaf. I I watched the classic albums today. Yeah it's it's great if you have not seen it. It's on prime. If you have Amazon prime you can watch it. And it's a lot of fun you can check that anyways. Who WANTS TO START? He wants to get into the thing. I Ki- Lil usually give some background by Keith. Whoever wants to jump in Candesartan go ahead good? Well we'RE TALKING ABOUT BAT OUT OF HELL. Tonight released October Twenty First. Nineteen seventy seven. It is the debut album by American rock singer. Meat Loaf also his first collaboration with composer. Jim Steinman and producer Todd Rundgren and has spawned two MEATLOAF sequel albums Bat out of Hell to back into Hell and bat out of hell three. The monster is loose. It's actually one of the best selling albums of all time selling over forty three million copies worldwide and it is certified fourteen times platinum by the way. I'm not explaining what that is. I've explained it a hundred times on the show As of June two thousand eighteen has spent five hundred twenty two weeks in the UK album charts. Which I think's pretty cool. That's a lot I wish it was. Us Charts but you case find to It's regarded as one of the most influential rock albums of all time. The songs have remained classic rock staples and I didn't know this part but I guess it was based on a musical that Jim steinman wrote initially in the seventies. Yes these were. Some of these songs were from that musical and some of them were like leftover ideas that he hadn't completely worked out and then flesh them out to do this about Peter Pan. I did not know that it was called Neverland. Peter one of my favorite stories ever. So that's pretty cool. He did it in seventy four and apparently it was a musical. That was touring in two thousand. Seventeen was supposed to come to the US in two thousand nine hundred and what? We're missing all that right now. Because I'd happened right now. Yeah Yeah and and yeah. They had met because Jim was writing for this this this musical and they were auditioning actors and the second he had heard. They had two hundred people audition and second. He heard MEATLOAF. He says he says for some reason it did not bother him. Didn't everybody else is like what Meatloaf? Wh what does this guy like? What what do you mean? But like he's Jim was like well I don't know he's a for some reason. It just didn't bother Mrs when a three hundred pound guy comes in and his name's Meatloaf like I was like okay. Well that makes total sense to make and he says he has. He's natural actor and he had a great voice. And you know it was like instantaneous. Connection what do you got Keith? You want to chime in Bro of Guardians father-in-law but that's a horror troop a true metal head. I don't Know Lily. Pretty much covered the whole gamut of shows over But and Harry out but I was surprised I was surprised to see how many copies of Soda I mean. I've listened to the album a few times myself. I mean I know the hits obviously more anything else under the album inside and out I think there are some definitely a lot of cool elements to the to the music. Is it definitely got rock? It's top it's progressive at times as a lot of different time you know tempo changes and a lot of like just kind of different interesting segues in the music. It's definitely got that rock opera. Sorta vibe of so it's yeah it's it's definitely one of the Album nothing just stand the test of time thousands. If you've never heard of before you let somebody hair like even a younger kid. It still sounds fraction. It's interesting you know what I mean. That's the only say about the album. It's very interesting. It's the music is just it? It's like a musical journey when you listen to that I mean it's not berry is not one dimensional. It goes all the songs go different places man. It's I mean yeah. I mean it's I don't know I read somewhere that the first month the record label wasn't real thrilled with it. I mean there is some lengthy tune on the album. But it was in the seventies. You could probably get away with that more. I mean even you know paradise by that. Were lights over eight as long but it doesn't seem that way because it goes somewhere if you yeah. It's a beautiful journey even with the Little thing without in the middle with degrade the Phil Rizzuto Yankee. Great go resume was on so let me just like I said it's and it's got some you know two out of three eight bad rock radio staples on there. I mean I I think. Probably one of my favorite tunes Ms Actually the title track. I think it's the album comes out rock and pretty good and it was a little bit then it gets back in like I said it got a lot of Different things going on in the justice sort of bounce off of that they were having a hard time finding someone to sign them even initially and they went to actually Clive Davis from CBS. And he said that actors don't make records and challenge diamonds. Writing Abilities and knowledge of rock music and the actual quote was. Do you know how to write a song? Do you know anything about writing. If you're going to write for records it goes like this. Abc ABC. I don't know what you're doing you're doing A. D. F. G. you don't know how to write a song. Have you ever listened to pop music? Have you ever heard any rock and roll music? You should go downstairs when you leave here and buy some rock and roll records. That was the quote that Clive told you that now now there is a famous story about them and I don't know if this was because what they did was what most people did was. They would take the demo and they would take you to a record label but they didn't. Jim and MEATLOAF did not feel that that would cut it. So what they did was they went and said you have to have a piano. And I'm GonNa play the piano and MEATLOAF guy's GONNA sing. Yeah we'RE GONNA. They loved album with just piano and vocals and there is a story that and I don't know maybe it was. The Clive Davis story that afterwards MEATLOAF was so angry that he flipped the grand piano over. They didn't say that during this story but I know Stein. I guess screamed up through the window. Fu Clive what are you know Blah Blah Blah? Well clubs immediate. Obviously Davis you know. GotTa give the Devil's major stuff. Obviously but He missed missed. You know I'd say Clap David. Little Song Bob. The record industry meaning really put up. I mean to. I guess that would probably discourage most votes. But it's it's sometimes. Sometimes different is good. And and the album's different. I mean it's like I said it's it takes you somewhere and I think it obviously resonated with forty three million people with probably more is porn so I mean it's just one of things where I think that you have to take. Chances and music Zambia. Music is not. There's no rules to music. Understand that people like to make it. That way betsy record company executives usually aren't musicians themselves. They just kind of know like they. They hear things better than a lot of people today. Think that okay. I know what's best for everything? Well valves the case. Then we wouldn't have anybody like you know like this album or you know or David Bowie or anybody. That went bowing was rhapsody. Right to push the music you know. I mean it's you have to take chances and if it pays off great and if it doesn't mean you have back to the drawing but I mean what else are you GonNa do. You know it's great that people take chances with music and you should continue to do that but this was something that was written at a time where you could take chances and it paid off form a I mean despite it being not successful at first it still sells two hundred thousand copies a year. So I think they're doing still you're still buying out of hell and it's like it's like it's like dark side of the moon. It's like sergeant pepper's timeline. It's like born to run. It's like you know you every led Zeppelin album. You know it's like people just you know there's always that next generation of people that discovered and WanNa hear it. I am the in terms of taking chances in music. Here's the thing and here's kind of the rule which is not really a rule. You can do anything you want if you can make it work and they were able to take that type of songwriting and it's not true that there aren't straight ahead pop tunes on it 'cause Song Right after Bat Outta Hell you took the words right out of my mouth is a straight almost like Phil Spector. Kind of pop tune. Yeah so that's not completely true. Yes battery powered by the Dashboard. Light for crying out loud. Some of those songs are really kind of goal. A lot of different places but there is. There are very compact songs. All revved up more straight ahead Pop type tunes. What I WANNA do is and I can't Keith. I want you to talk about this. Because let's talk a little bit about the personnel on on this record because Max Weinberg is played a big role on this inserted Roy baton both from springsteen's band and Todd Rundgren and said that you know you really felt that. When he heard the music he felt that like this is kind of what they were going for. Was it sort of early? Springsteen kind of epic type sound So what do you want to talk a little bit about some of the players on it and specifically Max Weinberg now was on a tracks? I mean he's definitely not on the whole record but some of the career tracks and I. I don't know exactly. I mean. There had detract number but I didn't write that down. But he's definitely on their nothing There's another drummer. Owner is some Wilcox. Forget forget his name but Max was definitely on a few tunes. You also got guys like Todd Rundgren on me. You can't really go wrong. Qassim SALZONE AND EDGAR. Winter was credited to fennel on track. You Three Yeah Incredible Vocals of Ellen Foley and you have a just a you know. It's definitely a some of the. Who's who at the time of really heavy studio. Cats can like play to this music. That's is a lot of music that can be intimidating. 'cause there's a lot of Juno Prize charting going on and you have to like get the set several field together for one song. So yeah I mean when you're GonNa go with that kind of bother me too definitely need some some top Guy Music. So Astor's there's some real heavyweights on there. And it's it's it goes to show. You just pulled off very well. And they were definitely gone for like you know Lorna students were going up in a springsteen kind of bobby. Let's do springsteen Song like Rosalita? Yeah I think you could compare it to that thing like really really. I hate the cold over the US bringing fan that is rates. Combo where it's like. It's very like did that. Just call me. Sometimes I think saw like or aren't road. Purposely like edits comes from jamming. You know what I mean were jamming and this is what happened. Let's take it into this direction. It's not so like scripted. So sometimes you can like improvise impo impetus. Improvisation becomes great ideas. You know that's Yeah Willie Wilcox Also penny that's was a was a play played with todd rundgren and Utopia Member regular. So that's probably how he he ended up on the project. He worked with todd and he also worked with holdouts. Yeah so I mean there's some that's some heavy hitter stuff right there and of course the amazing a Max Weinberg. Who was that was? Was he the Jay Leno Band Kerr number back? Weinberg was either drummer for the was either Jay. Jay Leno was that no no no kind of number of Ryan. Okay Conan. O'brien okay. And how did he handle? He had a late night. Stint as well so lily. Do you WanNa talk. Tell everybody about The lady who sang versus the lady. Who's in all videos needed? The Tory I do not know the difference. I'm sorry So Ellen full I know Ellen. Foley's the one who sang record. That's what I know. I thought for sure. Sorry no I did not do anything about the difference in the women. I Apologize Karla. Devito was she toward Ellen. Video Right Yes Ellen could not Ellen Foley could not tour she was just. She had other commitments because she was on the record. She got her own record deal so she was like. I don't have no time for any time for no meatloaf stuff and ended up going off and doing her own thing. And Karla Devito took over and is in the videos and he's pretty awesome and played with them live and she does a great job live and she her all the while her meatloaf never dated The the interplay on Paradise by the Dashboard Light got very hot and heavy on stage. Sure dead and she says you know she thought that like you know Meatloaf was trying to perform some sort of like you know throat exam with his tongue several several times when they perform that song. If you've ever seen the video I mean they look like they would only yeah. They're they're like really getting into it but she she went and she was a longtime a Tory member Wi with with the act but Ellen sang all the parts and so there's a little bit When Carl came and she thought that they were going to just you know put her voice in there and and and todd was like no. You don't get it. It's like mixed. They would have to take a whole thing apart. Not Going to work. We can do that. We can't we can't do that so you know so. That's Ellen Foley doing actually doing the singing. But it's Karla devito veto actually the lovely Brunette who who performs the videos and on tour so We're GONNA come back after we listen to see if I could see this bands. Right name right How would I? How would you said NOCCO The car? Bye-bye the carbide. Okay because I had it earlier and it just left me. Niqab this is try. These guys are from Bangkok and this treks called run. It's the only word I understand in the song. So you know I try to play at least one like actual metal metal song. So this is our metal metal metal song writer for the show. This is Ron Nick. Carbide and leukaemia rock and roll circus and Plan Nick Carbide run on Teeny rock and roll circus. I let me let me give you guys a little bit of what you can. Because I didn't I didn't do last band either. I like to take as we could find them to check them out We opened show Jack Joker and you want to go to facebook dot com slash. Jack the joker be are immature biard stands for VR five four nine and my gosh. We've that was. No carbide going to car by Dot Band Camp Dot Com and they've got a bunch of records out from Bangkok very cool ban. Good straight up straight up heavy metal music. You know no no bullshit. So maybe rank the tracks like For this sure now it'll be a little hard. You said hard. You can rank seven to one though. I suppose there's only this how many yeah that's interesting about the saw about the song but the album is there's only there's only seven songs which today might be an ep but when some of the songs are well for crying out loud. I believe almost nine minutes and you know it's a ballot and there's you know the first three minutes is just vocals and piano and then the orchestra comes in with the drums. So it's different in other like they do some of the the really stretch down. They really took us in different places again. It was an era. When this guys you guys are GonNa remember the seventies you had bands like led Zeppelin. Who were you know like very different? You know doing songs stairway to heaven and Kashmir which were long you know had a lot of different stuff going on you had albums like dark side of the moon which you know went all over the place and are considered classics so You know it was an era where there was about long freedoms of to sort of do and people's attention we weren't wasn't like nowadays you know what I mean. We watch a video for ten seconds and we want to see the next thing you know. You're not at the average attention spans twenty seconds long. Anyway I know anymore I mean I remember people would just sit down. And what are you doing? I'm listening to records. Yeah Well Stephanie. The people did on Friday night. I've been doing that a lot more lately. Listening Direct Welles. God I think late nowadays you could do that well it until the quarantines ever so until until exciting listened to your record damage. You could always do that rather than you can. Nobody does it. I mean I- Vinyl win the room that's like you know stack this high naughtiest boy in the plastic is I mean. I've heard the album a million but I just didn't have the vinyl copies who I buy it that sits in the plastic because I know it sounds like then now sudden. I'm like hey maybe I listen to that because Bano always sounds better. We all did you see. I don't know if you guys saw somebody has made a profit can plan on. It was crowd funded product that allows you to Qatar own regiment. I saw that I want any of this right now. You can create your own albums Vinyl Cutter. Make your own vinyl cutting. They can't do a whole lot and only does so many minutes but the company is like now that we have the technology together. We're going to you know God is cool. I want it could take your CDs. Isn't it crazy there's a time we'll take your CD's and put them on vital the other way around you know on CD you know? I have it on vinyl but I want everyone. Cd Now you know now. We're going back. We're going backwards pretty soon. Eight tracks and cassettes are back that that is definitely. I don't get that because I just got rid of a bunch of my aunt called me one day from Pittsburgh and was like. Oh you got a bunch of cases but cassettes here. I'm like just throwing away and are probably now hundreds hundreds of them. I think once missing is for people is the is the physicality of the music. That was a you know what I mean. We don't have that. Music is so music is fleeting now. Because you listen you doubt you stream it or something and there's no real like Tan. You have the physical thing in my hand. I can read vinyl notes. I guess you WanNa call them or lay there in bed. Look at all the pictures pictures and read the notes and everything and listen to the record. That's what you did. I know I haven't memories just like it was yesterday doing that when I was a kid. I mean what I did. Great on 'em anyways so let's try to do. Let's try to song ranking on this beach here. So what do you guys feel is their seven tracks. Shouldn't be too hard What's number seven? My numbers have an easy. Took the words right out of my mouth. That is like one of my favorites. Sorry it's not an yes my number number seven for crying out loud. It's too long for me. I think so too. I like can't wait. I'm not saying it's not just me. I mean that's a long lose and I hate to say this is. This is just straight up Dick mode for me to say. But it's there's no drums in it for the first five minutes can give a shit youtube because you play the drums. I totally understand exactly what I have to go with Keith. On that that is like it's a cool song but it's not there is a is a one on there just piano and vocal. But I really really love to the ballot on there But for crying out loud just didn't quite cut it forget. It isn't a bad sign. It's a great song but on an album that you know we ranking them. So what are we got for number six? My number six heaven can wait. That's I would put that a little higher. But what do you got for your monomer sixty written for the album? So they say I really. I mean it's just like you know You know all thinkers bats record. It's just there's there's better. Yeah there's no bad songs we're just ranking like is arbitrary. It's just what you may have somebody sitting at home right now. These people were frigging idiots. But I mean it's just our opinion it doesn't mean anything we now for for an hour a week. It means everything that's right bitch. So what are we done for digital? My number five was actually Africa in which you're number five all up. I go with that. I think we're going to start coming more into line here in the next in the last few here. So what's number four? Yeah all revved up as a good rock tune. It's a fun fun rock and I like the fact that they've kind of like do the double time at the end and everything but I just this one is actually supposed to be about Peter. Pan Is what I read this. You have some notes talk about something you could chime in this one's about Peter Pan referring to the Neverland musical that we talked about earlier The lyric lake the son of a Jackal on the leader of the pack is talking about Peter. Pan Himself is from steinman coming from him to me. It sounds like young frustration. But it'd be like over you know Wendy and all you know the whole thing. Okay Girls Window. So he got a number four. My number LILLIES NUMBER. Four was all revved. Up What is your number four. I got two out of three bed. Net that's what it's called outright and that in my opinion from here out the songs are all pretty much equal. Three Paradise took towards right out of my mouth and Bat Bat. Outta hell is the kind of stand out of all songs I mean that is. That's like that's like Progressive Rock there yet in light of genesis or yes territory. Almost some of what they do on that. But what are we got what we have for number three? My number three is actually two out of three in bed and so talking about to wish you should let you go. It remains meatloaf second highest chart hit in the US behind. I'll do anything for love which is not on the album. It stands one of his signature tunes with recurrent airplay to this day and it was actually the final song for the album. It was the final song it was done as an afterthought and the eagles were very popular this time and the Jim. Steinman wrote the song because he wanted to write a country song and the original. And there's actual vocal tracks and stuff like that. That are very eagle esque. That did not make it onto the final cut and if you watch the classic albums they play these tracks for you. And you're like Oh my God. This could be an eagle song like the way if they would've gone in a little bit of a different direction with it with the production and meet with a scientist a little bit different. They would done couple little differences the back of our holy crap but that was the idea of the of the song was selected. Eagles are popular. And the you know back in June assignments you always want to be cowboy when he was a little kid like country music and that was the idea of the song but when you know when got in the hands of the band and Todd Rundgren loaf and everything gets sort of more than became became filtered. Yeah it became. Its own thing meet filtered. It was meet filtered. Shit Yeah Would you guys is number three because that was what we got for number three? Kaethe you took. You took the words around my mouth. That's monomer through. Somebody can talk. That song actually begins with a spoken word. Introduction by Jim Steinman in Murcia. Mclean the spoken words. You through to the wolf. The spoken word section listened to you by Steve. Popovich was the key factor in accepting the album for the Cleveland. International records also epigraph records as well as a key factor in meatloaf and Simon doing together. So this was an important song even though it's number seven on my list. It's an important song on the album It was the it's really. I think it's a great and has that Ronnie Spector or that Phil Spector. Beat BOOM BOOM SH boom boom. You know be my little baby. You know thing in their total like you know. Oh my gosh to that Greg. Integrate helpline on. Yeah Yeah I mean. It's definitely definitely. Has that whole thing going? I wanted to say something else about the song. And it just slipped my mind but Yeah you'd be without even hearing any music it was. That was something that got them. Signed up the the word now. I don't care just stop right there. Well we're we're even though everybody. Epoch hated the whole album. This guy was like we need this. They and and Little Steven Van Zandt got them a meeting With with him so he could hear it now but I know what I wanted to tell you. Speaking of Jim. Steinman the album there. Jim Simon was lobbying for the album to be called. Jim Steinman ME I. Yeah I did know that and and I can understand for marketing purposes. Why the record label just was like. I've gotta work. Yeah so it does save. Its say on the album songs by Jim Steinman. Yeah so he does get a little thing about Jim is. He's gone on to write some giant hits for other. He's got air air supply. Selene dion of the Bonnie Tyler. The Bonnie Tyler. I mean like there's a ton so like he's nothing to be sort of like ashamed of I mean like he's just crank cracking ambassadors out. So what are we got for number? Two number two is bat out of Hell Keith. What your number is. There's a reason and this song was actually inspired by teenage tragedy songs. Like leader of the pack Terry Intel Laura. I love her. He wanted to write Jim. Steinman wanted to write the most extreme crash song of all time. No we're talking about paradise. Oh sorry no okay. Well that was. Are We talking about Paradise or Bat? I was talking about my number. Let's let's talk about. Let's go up first and we'll talk about that. It's the most notable for the length and the unique saw song structure. It has four parts in it became a stable of classic rock radio. The version on the album is eight minutes and twenty seconds long. The original version was twenty seven minutes long. They had to cut that back a little bit. Obviously for album sake while you say todd rundgren talking about it on the classic albums and he was like. They had all these other vocal things that they wanted to do was a whole they had worked at a MINNEAP. Broadway musical and then I mean time like four times and then you're done it's A. It's one of the longest songs to released uncut on on a forty five steinman. Said he now. This is another ultimate style. Steinman said he wanted to write the ultimate car. Sex Song in which everything goes horribly wrong in the end I think he really got what he wanted. I'd actually Like I said Yeah. It's fantastic. It's got the first part which is paradise. Basically the couple reminiscing about high school days The baseball broadcast Obviously The New York Yankees Announcer Phil Rizzuto broadcasting his part of the game which he thought it wasn't going to be as dirty as it was he was Super Mad about it after recording was so he's like really. We're doing this and then a part to let me sleep on it. Just as the male characters about to score the girl stops him and tells him the dirty isn't happening unless he promises to love her forever and marry her and then he tells her he'll sleep with her or he tells me he'll he tells her he'll sleep on it but let's keep going and she refuses typical women. Part three is praying for the end of time. We're back in the present and the male character cannot stand his wife anymore praying for the end of time ending his obligation to her and that is the four parts of the song which makes it. The unique. I'm MEATLOAF says that he human Jim worked had had a conversation where he told the story about. He dated this girl when he was living in Texas. And she he had. She had this red convertible with this amazing lit up dashboard. And we'd Parking. And every time he would they would be putting like crazy and every time he tried to like take a little farther she would literally say stop right there. There was. That's fantastic. That's my favorite line in the whole song. I'm GonNa tell you what this is. The only song anybody will ever be able to get me to do to with. Garry oak with an alcohol specifically Tequila. I need at least seven shots before I'll do it. We'll do it after seven shots of Tequila. You could ask any of my friend shots. Yup Verse First and foremost let me. Just stop you right there. Stop right there. I mean to say that I'm the heavyweight of drinking and everything else and I don't even know if I could drink seven shots. What that's that's pretty good. Tequila specific if I kill unloved. Akilah drinker so I'm whiskey. I couldn't. I'm not getting up to Karaoke. I'm going to go find my bed. No Toilet Aaron Been Gone. You ask my friends. It's been done more than once Keith any notes or any ideas on dashboard. Paradise Valley de Occidente Brilliant Song. It's probably probably like I said it's probably not rocket enough for my number one choice which is obvious but I think it's it's that's that's the kind of song that not everybody can right. Man That's just not given to you. That's definitely a well crafted. Thought out. I mean that's just you know that I have no idea how long it took them. The right that's on but holy Shit. I mean that's that's what freedom from parts. I mean it's just a lot of just. There's just a lot of interesting things on all works into one song. I mean it's it's it's it's actually very amazing that people can do like. I said it's I give them total kudos. One you have you know. Brilliant Writers and producers ipod round Jim mcgann on. They can definitely They hear a lot more than the average Joe so they can put that stuff together and then obviously top it off with Meat Luxury and Ellen Foley correct. Yeah Yeah great great vocals and Phil Rizzuto. Don't forget fillon even now yeah. Can It's brilliant song minutes? It really is. I mean it's nothing else I can say about it. Have you ever have you ever tried to play in the band is it? Is it interesting no I'm not? I don't know those bands I've been in probably couldn't I was in a band and we learned it did you. We did the whole thing but we were too afraid to play it out. We worked on it and we were just every time we would go to put it into sats really and we just you know we'd all look into and we we. We never played it up. We did we did work. I did the MEATLOAF part We had a female singer. She did the Ellen. Foley part and our drummer did to fulfill resute art nine and it was and it was. It was really fun to work out it was. We had a sort of watered down version. Granted we're four piece rock band so we didn't know we had to kind of do our own thing with we did it but we did all the parts but it was just too scary now. That would have been cool because you know nobody does that. Why wanted to do? I'm like nobody. Does people would probably really get into but in any case. Well the reason that was. That's my actual number one is because I just think it's super unique and I will sing it. And now he's kind of a super unique just like the song that we the key thing. I have for our number one which is bad out of hell so and I know I know we talked about this. And we're thinking maybe even doing a podcast on the so what what tell a little bit over but I started this but it was a song inspired by teenage tragedy. He because he wanted to write the most extreme crash song of all time originally featured on the unfinished musical Neverland along with heaven can wait. And all revved up I think it's a great opener to the song. It's like literally like about of Hell. It's like it's your. It's in your face red as soon as you listen to the song Or the excuse me and The lyrics CETACEA of evil with guns knives and bloodshot and the whole thing. And it's great. I think I. I think it's fantastic song however paradise me number one because it's unique Yeah it right in was kill Lily and I were talking about. Maybe doing a show where we talk about. We rate the top ten crash songs. Because I was whole thing. There was a whole. There's been tons of car. Crashes and motorcycle crashes stuff this is definitely be on the list So what are your thoughts on bat out of Hell Keith? Because both both you and is number one I think You could never have to put that song somewhere else in. The new would have been a disservice to the entire. I'LL MITCH IT. Came out swinging. It was definitely a have that rock vibe almost was progressive at times with a definitely interesting little interludes in the song it definitely showcases of neat lows powerful vocals industry arrangement is just not your typical pop song. So it's a it's a very interesting. It was to be honest with you. It was very hard to choose between that and Paradise. Paradise is a very unique song. And I think it's one of the most interesting songs probably ever written. It's just it's unique in. It's the pool that kind of stuff the I've never been in a band that had to vocals until recently though in the country band center in the pull this one off all you can try but it's just Definitely Song that. I think that if you listened to that song that arrested the album. You can see that takes on a whole that. I'll just takes on a whole different life song after song. I mean it's it's it's it's definitely crazy man like interesting. Every song has its own personality. They had They were four or five minutes into the song and Jim. Steinman was like no no no no. We can't be over because I have a whole other section. You gotta be kidding. Song has to be over. You can't write a song this long. And he goes now we have this whole thing and so they were producing putting out putting it all together. And they were nearing the end of over dubs and Jim had been asking. Todd Rundgren like we need like a motorcycle sound in the song. Yeah he went and so times like a and he says well. Don't you have sound effects so when Todd overdubbed his when he did his Guitar Solo? He's like I'll I'll make the motorcycles out that's all done with guitar and it is one. Take out of the hole that crash noise with Jani Bar and the picks scraping and everything and he goes right into the Guitar Solo. And it's flaw. Let's genius and if You Watch the classic Meatloaf isolates the track and you don't think about Todd Rundgren and some like Monster Guitar Player. But he's a bad ass guitar player right. I mean that's been the super super genius. Man I mean at Dude has put his everything he puts his hands on is going to be gold song great producer and apparently great. He's a great isn't a great musician. Yeah he's just born guys just doesn't get enough credit for what he did. He's been on so much offense and he's live time recipient. Obviously that's awesome to go. I didn't know that either. So anyways guys anything. We'RE WE'RE OUT OF TIME. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA get out of here with one band when we're done here but Any parting thoughts or ideas. You guys want to throw out there about Bat At hell in the next no one hundred and twenty seconds. I just think it's advocate at you. Definitely see a deriving from a musical. It's timeless it tells the story of Sex Lust and love. I just love it so I like albums to take you on a journey. And there's there are records like dark side of the moon led Zeppelin four Purple Rain you know. There's a handful these records out there. That just like you just you really when you start it you really want to go to the end just like I don't really I just don't want to just take the ride and that's one of the things I look and it is. This is an album that takes advantage of the art. Form of the album makes great use of that cited like we have a cycle of songs. And we want you to just relax and get into it and listen. Maybe you're going to jump up and down maybe you're going to kind of clench your teeth. Maybe you're going to get a little nervous. Maybe GOING TO BE RELIEVED. GonNa Laugh. The other thing about the album is and I'm not sure how many people pick up on this. Is Jim Steinman? Todd Rundgren of both talked about how the album is tongue in cheek. They know they're not taking themselves too. Sears they know that a song like two out of three. Ain't bad is kind of like what woman wants to hear that I watch the way I'm GonNa love you. You know like like that's an example of how like they were being there was. There was a sense of humor to it to absolutely brilliant Keith. Got The last word on Bat. Outta hell. Well I can say pretty much what you said. I mean it is a brilliant album. It takes you on a journey. I mean like most great albums. Do Anything to stands. The festival is don't be heard from the seventy of until they were. You can turn you know. Let your twelve year old nephew here at need likes it too. It's just oranim things where it just goes on and on two songs all have their own personality like I said before there well written well produced will play. And what else can I say a man? It's very powerhouse vocalist than an somebody must like because it did spawn. Two sequels right. Yeah Oh yeah so. We can talk a little bit at some point. We'll maybe we'll do a whole meatloaf show but pretty much. This is it guys Keith. Hawk Hawkins. Y'All right brother.

Espn radio all throughout the vet. So Tim Kirkman is with us now. We've got a lot questions for our friend. Tim Kirch in Very few of them baseball related. What percentage of time Tim Kirch will answer just about anything? What percentage of time when we are seeing you on the Internet in a suit are you at home? Not Wearing pants I wear pants every day. Were shoes and socks. Every day we bid over this I wear sweatpants every day. 'cause they're comfortable and most of the things. I do from home and any. Tv I do from home is all shot from the waist up So yes. I've always wearing sweatpants. I'm always wearing sweatpants. So what percentage of people doing the news right now because a news reporter was seen doing the news and he was about to get on his Peleton or something so he did it in shorts with a suit top when you're watching this on during this time during the pandemic. How often are you thinking to yourself? I think that guy looks like someone who's not wearing pants I- everyone's wearing pants. I think very few people are wearing shorts when they wear a suit coat. Because nothing look stupider than a suit coat and shorts but I'm sure nobody is wearing the full suit with dress. Shoes and dress socks if only being shot from the waist up would you agree that Frank Vogel looks like the Guy. On antiques roadshow. Who can't hide his disappointment when he finds out the prized watch kept in his family. Heirloom for generations was only worth twelve dollars. The Lodge expert telling him. This is Adam. Silver does Gary Bettman. Looked like the world's foremost authority on mortuary real estate. Say that that is really good. Yeah does Dave gettleman looked like the guy who says upping boom when things go right and then immediately follows it with a hand clap. And that's what I'm talking about Steve. Kerr looked like the waiter who squats kneels by your table. When taking your order and doesn't write anything down even though even though all eight or making substitution crush of you on this one. Are you ready? You guys already does. Bill O'Brien look like the anthropomorphic. Big Toe in a commercial athlete's foot cream. What the Hell's going to happen with baseball? Tim like what is what is the most plausible scenario. Do you think well Dan a nat- naturally I'm thoroughly confused like everyone else and anyone who thinks he's got the answer is making it But we have to listen to all the plans because one of the plans is going to be close to being good enough to us. That's what we're going to. I think it's a guest Dan. We're speculating everyone. Speculating that somehow. Some way don't ask me how we'RE GONNA play baseball in July. I think we're going to play an empty. I'm sure we'RE GONNA play an empty stadiums. I'm sure they're gonNA be maybe just Florida Arizona. Maybe one other area but this week is the first week that a couple of people that I talked to guessing just like me started to feel like. Yeah this is. We're going to get this together but as you know Dan. There are so many roadblocks in the way that just when you get excited one week that a couple of people should know were encouraged next week that that encouragement could turn into being discouraged. That's how this works. The narrative changes every week. If not every day does will cain look like a get rich quick scheme as Gardner? Minhsiu LOOK LIKE. He stole the bride from a local wedding and his racing to escape the bumbling local. Sheriff Mike Leach there. I've got a twist on the Mike McCarthy as an Elvis impersonator as well to God. So you ready. There've been some additions to this. Mike McCarthy looks like an Elvis impersonator ready to sit down the toilet one final time after crushing that large post performance plate of Texas Barbecue on the walk from the states to the bathroom. And my God tim how how. Your Day's been different you because the rhythms for a long time. Now you are. Somebody who put put writes the box scores down every single day. You keep your notes baseball. The timing of baseball is something that has been a landmark in your life. For what thirty five forty years yeah more than forty And yes I missed box scores terribly in the morning. I don't know what to watch on television at any point unless Michael Jordan's on or something like that It's really weird. I have as I told you taking on this writing project which has taken an enormous amount of time so instead of sitting at my desk and going through all the box scores in doing my box score book by hand. Like a seventh grader I just right every day right every morning because before everyone wakes up that quiet this time around here so so and I'm used to working from my house. I'm just not used to working from my house. You know forty nine days in a row. That's been the really weird part for me is you know. I think traveling's violation believe me. I don't enjoy traveling but it's been a huge part of my life and it's been weird not being anywhere but home for almost seven weeks. Jimmy Eighty six celtics ninety seven bowls. Who Wins I think the eighty six Celtics win? Why don't know how that Bulls team is great? Is that both team was. I don't know how they stop that frontline with Larry Kale and the chief and Dennis Johnson Danny ainge. You could do a whole lot. Worse your backward. Nobody can guard Michael Jordan prime. Nobody but if anyone can keep him under fifty it might be Dennis Johnson so I would say having never bet against Michael Jordan in anything on anything. I still think that Celtic team was a little bit deeper and that front line with three hall of famers was pretty darn good timmy. We were discussing earlier. That Manny Maria. Ramirez wants to come back the age of forty eight in Taiwan and we thought because we are so star for any sort of athletic competition here in the United States then. I floated the idea to Dan. The guys that I think it would be great as long as they're willing to play test. Negative obviously not play in front of fans. Don't you think that we would love? It would be a ratings monster many Ricky Henderson kids Saco mark. Maguire Nolan. Ryan could still give you a complete game garage Robert Gio Phil Phil Rizzuto Nolan Ryan Phil Rizzuto. Yes Bobby Mercer. Who else I mean Jimmy. Get Monster numbers. People would enjoy watching that with or not people would love to watch that STU gods obviously because they there's nothing else to really watch right now but back. There's something serious you know this whole thing that starts in baseball for you know until August the first and they're running out of time and all they WANNA do is have a two months tournament. There are people in favor of that that we're going to turn a baseball season into march madness. That's better than nothing and who knows if we might end up doing something like that. Yeah I think people are starved. I think they'd love to see Ricky Henderson play gang because I'm sure he can still run the big differences though I believe is once you stop playing baseball for a long time. It's really hard to get it back and yet you could put Larry Bird's pickup game right now and he probably fourteen fifteen from the field because that motion never goes away. Does how long looked like a pencil eraser. Does Clint Hurdle look like Bourbon. Church in does Tim. Kirk looked like the pastor who gives the celebrate celibacy talk to a Christian youth group and takes them all out for Vanilla frozen yogurt because quote. It's just as good as sex. Does Mel Kiper junior like a pilot from the nineteen twenties who was the first to fly over the North Pole. Spoiled Yogurt. Jared Goff look like the electricity is apprentice. Who suggest he can do the work for half the price as the other guy? The other guy is of course Jeff Fisher or does he look more like Jared Goff does. He looked more like he was gonNA join the military but he has asthma. Yeah I can always good hearing you laugh. Sir. Thank you for being with us. We appreciate it.

He amazed at any of the show was all three hours of the day of Lebatardshow was our Miami only hour and our best of podcast on the man and the ESPN APP and subscribe lebatardshow France podcast network featuring South Beach sessions stupidity and mystery create please rate ED subscribe. New episodes are posted every week. Wherever you get your podcasts the Miami. Our this week is really good. I mean I'll Hassen is mad at me for saying the David. Samson is the only executive we have in our stable. His texting me furious. I don't think of a mean. Even if as a front office insider I think of him as our goofy friend. I don't think of him as a former sons executive seriously put it on the poll at lebatardshow Amino Hassen our goofy friend or former former front office insider. Well we didn't really know at least I didn't. I didn't know a mean when he was actually in front office. I knew David Sampson. When he was the MARLINS team President and obviously David Samson now as he is not no longer the MARLINS team president so I could still see it. I'm with the enemy like I can't see he's just the dopey Fred that more than ever. Give me total credentials on this. But I feel like he was just a video guy that we made a front office inside. How high in the Organization of the sons did he climb? I know he had. I know he had access to seeing some things. But forgive me on my ignorance. How high in the Suns Organization did he actually climb was an assistant? Gm was the VP was. He I've been operating under the assumption the entire time that it means binitie. Spn that he wasn't assisted GM. Some point I could be wrong. But that's I could've swore I might be totally insulting him and I'm sure we'll hear from him. I do but I just think of him. The Guy on American Ninja Warrior who is falling into the Water. Not An esteemed front office executive so we. I guess at some point. We'll talk to yell at us. Explain to us what his credentials are. But do you think of him as an executive now. Because I've only known him as a friend and it wasn't executive David Sampson the reason that you get. When you get from Samson which is just unfiltered raw. Honesty is because David has no desire to go back to it and so he's not trying to anybody. It's it's unfiltered honesty. Except when he's lying like don't accept except when some aren't true but we do have an access that we're not normally getting in the way he goes over. The Miguel Cabrera trade is going to infuriate. What little of the Marlins Fan base is left? Billy have you heard this yet? Have you heard anything about what the MARLINS could have gotten for? Miguel Cabrera as a Marlins Fan. Who Cares about this stuff? But I don't want to. I mean I don't care how you messed up messed up. I got it or good cutting and we're assuming by the way you get Clayton Kershaw. You're going to figure out what to do with him. You would've just mess up that trade too so whatever the local hour no matter how little enthusiasm billy has for at the local hour and David Samson breaking that down is something that is worth listening to because a lot of people like to hear about trades that almost happen. We're just assuming that if they would've traded and got in those pieces they would've used them correctly and that's going under the fact that they misused the piece that they haven't got the pieces in exchange so like why would we assume that if they got Clayton Kershaw he would've turned into Clayton Kershaw. They were treated him for someone else. That didn't pan out the. It's the same reason these players is a problem. Okay and fair enough. But it's the same reason I thought you guys were interested in Ethan Strauss's story in his book about the warriors that the warriors had agreed to a trade of Steph curry and Klay Thompson for Chris. Paul and Chris. Paul screwed that up. And if we were to apply the logic you're applying there we would have just said well the the New Orleans team would have just screwed up steph curry and Klay Thompson. They never would have become steph curry and Klay that might have. I mean I think a lot of players. Success is being around the right thesis. Which is why Dan going to. The saints is going to be like Harvard. Education rescinded by the right piece. Now organizations win championships not players. I guess you side with Jerry. Krause your your Jerry Krause Sky. Yeah that's who you are This is not boding well for me. I hate doing this and I love a main but so far and I could be wrong again. I thought it was just A. GM was was is. He's been in an organization right Dow. It's assistant director basketball operations. That's the highest level. I saw but that's not all right. Put that on the poll at Lebatardshow Assistant Director of basketball executive or not an executive at lebatardshow because I'm not questioning a means credentials. I'm not he knows more basketball than any of us. By leaps and bounds. I'm I'm objecting to his characterization as somebody who had a lot of power. I'm going to Jack. Winston saying that he would get a Harvard education in New Orleans. Do you know how disrespectful this is? Bruce Arians Bruce. Arians has quite the resume he resurrected Carson Palmer's a career but let's just use recent history Janus you were just turned into the leading passer in the League and you get a Harvard education now on how to be a quarterback. What Shawn do it? Teddy Bridgewater teach them how to throw just five yards in. I mean I don't understand this. What does he Bruce Arians? He did so much for you. You actually have a record to your name. Granted you also have another record to your name which is interceptions. But that's on you Bruce Arians. Throw interceptions for you. You got a lot of yards. Thanks Bruce Arians. He's part of the thirty thirty club. I happen to think I wanted to apologize to James. Today because I said it should spend a year trying to find the new age it when he's in New Orleans. I Mike I happen to agree with them. It is a Harvard Education. Because not only are you getting it from Sean. Payton as a head coach. You're getting it from drew brees as a quarterback and I think a one year flyer with their clearly gonNA use tastes on Hill wide receiver running back and of course the backup is a great spot for Jameis Winston to learn not only from a guy on the field but from a guy on the sidelines. I I agree with James. It's a testament. Exactly how much winning a championship buys you. Because part of his Harvard Education is going to lose as a favourite in the playoffs. And blame the referees for it. Every year learned behind drew brees Teddy Bridgewater one gains. They changed the way that they've played. It wasn't fun watching Teddy Bridgewater. It was fun watching Jameis Winston. It's just such an insult on your way out to Tampa Bay. Why do that to Bruce Arians? He's kind of good at this and for us to just say. Oh Yeah Harvard Education and just assume that New Orleans is great spot because they won a championship more than a decade ago is insane to me. Here is the funny thing about that students. Like it is the funny thing. You can mock whatever you want in terms of areas credentials against Sean Payton's But Sean Payton. If he doesn't have onside kick he's fired by now like he's done a lot of losing games that we thought he was going to win. Since that onside kick in a super bowl they beat. Peyton manning like that. He is not that much better of a quarterback whisper than Bruce Arians is. He's not no but what I'm saying is Dan. There's a difference. Okay this time around you get to sit next to the professor okay. So it was. It was Bruce Arians but you were thrown into the fire and you had to execute and he couldn't sit there and teach you now you get stand next to Bruce Arians. In this case John Peyton Watch drew brees at had the teacher explain. Hey this is what he's doing. This is what makes him so great. Doing with drew brees. He actually got a Harvard Education from sitting behind Ryan Fitzpatrick because his play was so bad. Sop Making excuses. For Sean Payton Losing Game. After big game. What does he done recently to earn credibility with you what is ever done period more sports next though we're apart these days with sharing more so at Geico we'd like to say thanks?

So in our sports lifetimes to God's there have been really as far as I can remember three major ego incidents that really derailed teams Big One so big that. I wouldn't even classify Donovan mcnabb. And Terrell Owens as one of them the big ones the big Ego blowups sports have been Jerry. Jones with Jimmy. Johnson have been Kobe and Shaq. And have been what. You're watching on television right now where. You are all appalled at the idea that an executive believing organizations win championships and Michael is out here. Spitting it as hall of Fame Speech. Players Win Championships. You guys are showing in that last segment. How the entire construct is built. Not In retrospect when we can all salute Michael Jordan because he conquered the organization. We all make arguments. On behalf of the organization. The player wouldn't be that organization if not for the organization versus the players. So now you find with the Patriots you find them in a position more than anyone that we've seen recently where they're saying to you if they intend on winning. Yeah we could do it any old way. We've been showing you any number of times. We just ran off. Tom Brady with something that felt like egos. So if you believe everything you guys were arguing last segment because the predisposition of the people listening is see not six championships and side with the organization. And what do you do with this from? Darren rebel Michael Jordan wanted most to sign with quote. If you come anywhere close I'll sign with you guys. Mj told me told them at the time. Because of a family feud at the time over control of the company. The German shoemaker. Adidas made no offer so I ask you this. If Michael Jordan goes to Adidas. Does he become what? We're celebrating in ten series ten series documentary if it had not because Nike. I'll do it with anybody nightmare. Better Neck Nike's better at the marketing game than anybody. Never Mind Sports then anybody well let me ask you this Dan because you know how he's he's the biggest most popular athlete we've ever seen and his great news cannot be disputed and so. I'm I'm asking you because the greatness was unlike any other great is we've ever seen don't you think he has the same impact on Adidas? They did on Nike. How steph curry with all that game changing Steph Curry curries now Michael Jordan now? Dan Understand understand but he was on his way liking. He was on his way to being sort of the modern day version. If that team had step together like understood Steph. Curry is not Michael Jordan. But I'm asking you the question your siting there with Michael Jordan. Under all circumstances you're saying Adidas Becomes Nike. That's what you're arguing right. I'm saying Jordan become Jordan regardless of the Shoe Company and yes I am saying that Adidas Becomes Nike Jordan. Chooses to go to because he was that special. That's interesting because I feel like you're forgetting all the marketing like Adidas doesn't do marketing like that. I think you're forgetting how much the marketing machine had to do with making him that because he wasn't doing it for himself he wasn't a colorful personality himself. I think you're you're also forgetting the other Jordan provided them with that with the. I understand what you're saying but Jordan. His presence choosing Nike provided that with a lot more marketing dollars to then go out and market Michael Jordan. So and I think he would have the same impact on a deed as I really do. I would that much income into Adidas. You saw the special Michael Jordan. Didn't get to become Michael Jordan until he was winning the championships like that was deep into the Nike run. That was after years and years of the Nike stuff. And then then they banked on him and then they turn Lebron James into the same version but like I think it's a good question Put It on the poll. If Michael Jordan goes to Adidas instead of Nike Does Adidas end up becoming Nike? Because you're you're giving next to no credit to the organization. They're still got. You're not giving up. You know you're saying you're saying either one of them. The organization in both instances only needed the player to make him Michael Jordan. That Nike would have been what the film might would have been an afterthought that we'd know the name instead of the people who run Adidas. Yes I don't know Phil Knight becomes an afterthought but yes. I'm saying whoever gets his foot. Whoever gets his footing there sneaker they turn out to be Nike and it just so happened to be Nike. But you did bring up a good point perhaps forgotten all the way that Nike marketed. Michael Well before Michael everyone a title and I I am not certain. Dita's would have done the same exact thing the same exact way. Perhaps they would have waited until he finally won titles and then started. The marketing campaigns Nike did not. They were they were doing when he was still losing to the Pistons so the last ads continues this Sunday at nine pm. Eastern on ESPN immediately after the show airs.

We will update the polls in a second Stugotz but I am curious. Because I'm getting inundated a little bit and this is not surprising right. We butted heads with Boston for a long time and usually been terribly surprised. Even though we shouldn't be about what ends up on our doorstep when we bump against Boston but explain this to me. We were talking earlier about a controversy. That seems like a legitimate sports controversy. A Patriots kicker coming into the league with a three percent or tattoo and alt-right militia tattoo. And all. I've been saying I think is. Hey that deserves more questions that deserves more questions organization league when you're dealing with a team that had Aaron Hernandez and tattoos that were clues a team. That is always getting in trouble and has reasons meticulous reasons for trying to stay out of trouble and despite it is always in some kind of trouble. I'm curious why still get some version of this STU gods because I don't really understand the other side of the argument on this like? What are you arguing when I'm saying? Hey An all right. Militia Ted to. Oughta get more questions about it but people keep showing up on my doorstep with one of these. Why don't you ask all the black guys about all of their gang? Tattoos or Lebatardshow is here. Concern About Tatoos. Tattoos would like lead league wide examination by them. But you know white people or something push them on anything and you. Don't get the show. White guys deflections. Their version of hater or one of the many ist is to put you on defense. Another guy writes in Lebanon charge. I'm the son of exiles and I wake up obese on the beach where the woman. I don't deserve a job. I don't deserve surrounded by a bunch of indignant racists. I think that's your guys I think. That's you guys and plotting the bleep out of platitudes. Like explain to me. What I'm pressing on when you are pushing back on. Hey An all right militia. Tattoo probably deserves more questions You're pressing on Boston. You're pressing on a person who's asked the questions who I think people in Boston probably felt gave a heartfelt honest. Answer was a mistake. I'm taking care of it. I'm getting rid of it. It won't happen again. You're pressing on all that stuff. I agree with you. It deserves more attention. It deserves more questions. A would be getting more attention. It would be getting more questions. If it wasn't a kicker it was a quarterback. They drafted in that draft. We would certainly be asking a lot more questions. So I think the kicker factors head but I think people in Boston absolutely feel like he's explained the Tattoo and he said all the right things in terms of eliminating said Tattoo. I am presently racking my brain trying to think of all the black players in the NFL that have gang tattoos because that listeners sounded so sure of it. I'm really trying to figure out which black. Nfl players. I am getting so much that Mike as if like the argument is hey this bad thing that the white guy did the black guys do it to ask them questions about it as if this is a place where we have to make sure to find the quality as if the idea of a three percent tattoo on. Its face isn't dangerous. I forgive me like I just can't think of other high profile cases Aaron Hernandez was obviously one and became a story line. After the fact that we're also much harder to see than this ed to add it to Sean Jackson. We got dragged through the news stream because there were gang ties at a very weird time. That was almost being used as leverage in his contract situation but this listener seems very certain that their NFL players with gang tattoos and if there are sure call that into question especially during the draft process where you're infamous for putting people through an absolute ruler of background checks so yeah that should be conversation. When is it not but who are these players sir? But who are these defenders is what I'm talking about like if I can't place in front of you a story about hey. Three percent or tattooed deserves more questions without you bristling without you getting sensitive without you thinking. I'm race baiting me that I'm the one race baiting when the kicker has the tattoo like if I can't put that question in front of you then what am I allowed to put in front of you as a question because it seems like you're saying anything in play they're like if someone can be anti government and take up arms against the police if it comes to it like if you're you're down with that what are you arguing on behalf of guns or your own sort of biases and preconceptions. Especially when the kicker himself has said Oh I have to get this remove. This is not a representation of oil so everyone is in agreement. That it's a bad look yet. You're out here still defending it somehow on his behalf. I really don't I really don't I really don't understand the people who need to defend this but once he says wow. This is a bad look. I need to get rid of this. Then I'm asking you as a journalist one of the questions where you going where the questions. What are the questions that you would want? As of the GAIGER. They ended up asking them the next day in terms of like. When did you do this? When did you find out specifically about the what this meant? You found out today. You found out today what it meant like backup background questions. That sort of put the feet to the fire on the easiest things to gossip. You want to be in the league. The easiest thing to say is to say you would say this lie and cover lie and cover. Cover it up. Covers physically cover up the tattoo. He wants to play in the league. So this is exactly the public relations play. You make but you're the first one in your the first one who accuses everyone else of being a liar on this stuff. This is the one you want to buy like buying it at all. I was just wondering I think people feel like those questions have been asked and answered so I'm wondering past. They weren't the first day they were. Now get that. That's what the objection was. The questions came the next day. Bella check wasn't asked about it The questions were soft. The first people accepted on. Its face the explanation which seemed like it was total. Bs like seemed implausible. Even if you stretch to the to the extremes to believe that that was something that was a total accident. It's still a story. It's an important conversation. I can't believe I was a part of it but very poorly and sort of explaining why it is actually not usually a part of them like illustrating to everybody. Why it's useless to throw these things to you. Ninety seven balls.

This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Here's Jeremy chef our next guest was a Pulitzer prize. Finalist for commentary in twenty thirteen at Newark star ledger. He is novelist. He is an award winning columnist one of the most respected newspaper men of his time. We welcome to the show Mark Dion. Mark thanks for being with us. Jeremy thank you very much. Appreciate it marks new book new novel, which has just been released in paperback after its initial publication last summer is gods of wood in stone. Qurqus reviews said the national pastime is the backdrop for an incisive exploration manhood in modern American market, and why is sports in? This is a book to some degree about sports as well. Why is sports the prism through which we see so much about masculinity in this country. Well, I think that's a great question. And it's because you know, the athletes based on their skills are are are are thrust upon us as these God like figures, and and that is something I noticed even as a sports writer at the New York Post of in from the nineteen from nineteen eighty five to nineteen ninety. I saw that accelerate. You know, that the the way the guys were idolized, and and and also dehumanized. I think is really taken off from the time. I began as a journalist till now, it's novel and it centers around the intersection of two lives baseball player who's about to be inducted into the hall of fame and Cooperstown and a man who lives in Cooperstown who rejects in rails against some of the ways in which society is changing. How did you come to this story? Well, I'll tell you the the interesting thing this book took a long time to write, unfortunately. But there was an incident at Yankee Stadium between Carlton, Fisk and Dion Sanders in nineteen ninety and Carlton. Fisk was playing for the White Sox and St. on Sanders popped up the ball and ran back to the dugout and Carlton Fisk when he got up a Carlton Fisk again said to me rookie, we run them out in this league or something like that. And Dion Sanders spit on the plate of a what a back would you saw on the plate and Carlton Fisk jumped up and like was ready to throttle them. And that was when I got the very first nugget of idea for this book because when I broke into sports, and I think you've also had this experience. There were guys that were sort of the they were the they were the they were the bridge between the guys that had to work in the off season. And then the guys that like, we're. Multi-million dollar, you know, signings and Carlton Fisk was one of those guys he has served two years in the national guard before he could play professional baseball. So I started to get this idea about, you know, how athletes have changed and how the values of the value exports have changed and the interest in sports says changed I I started out in sports, Jeremy before there was an ESPN and watch just go crazy, right? So the blacksmith is sort of the, you know, antithesis of modern modern hero worship. But he's also the he's the embodiment of manhood prior to the formation of professional sports. You know, the kids would go to the village and watch the blacksmith bend metal and put his hands in the fire. And you know, that was it was the guy with the giant puff by forearms. So I think the collision of those two characters is very, you know, part of the great American mythology. We're speaking with Martino get about his new book gods of wood and stone a novel that has just been released in paperback you worked as a sports columnist and sports writer you worked as a general columnist in New Jersey at the star ledger. What are your mentors in the business old friend of mine, Jerry Izenberg who still doing it? Remarkably one of two guys who've covered every Super Bowl still doing a great job his column when Don Newcombe died a few weeks ago, vintage vintage, Jerry, but you also worked at the New York Post, and you got to see Pete Hamill up close doing what he did. How do you know? There's this kind of intersection of sports in general columnists, which Breslau personified in Hamble is well. How did your career move from sports to general writing on issues in New Jersey? Well, Jerry is my mentor of and my first book called the last newspaper man is actually dedicated to him. And I really got to know Pete pretty well when I was at the post covering sports, and at that time Pete was very interested in the whole Mike Tyson saiga, which I broke some aspects of. And he was also interested in Pete Rose, which I also did a awful lot of reporting on it and broke some aspects of that too. Relatives of some of the mail fraud. But so I always kind of wanted to be a general columnist, and I and I think that I saw sports change from the time that we we had greater access to athletes, and and then suddenly we only had access to their agents. And then suddenly we only had access to their agents secretaries. And so I began to feel like that little eating bird that rides on the back of the right Nassir is like, you know, I'm just along for the ride in this tremendous juggernaut industry and capitalizing on other people's fame. And by the way, that's what I love about. What you do is that you know, you find those stories that are not just based on the celebrity of the person. But the the humanity in sports, and I think that's that's great vehicle. So so for me, I similarly of but I branched out of sports, but I began. To look for what I felt was a more authentic type of journalism, and I decided to become a new side feature writer, and then a columnist here at the star ledger. You know, as someone who is seen the industry disrupted to such a great extent in the last twenty years. I mean, the complete dissolution of the newspaper model with all of the classified advertising going online decimating the industry. The emergence of obviously, online journalism and reluctance of people to pay for that as somebody who's given his life to two newspapers looking back at it. Now, how do you feel about everything? Well, I feel that the transition from text journalism from the papers to digital has been done successfully by you know, some of the big players. The the Wall Street Journal times and the Washington Post for smaller regional papers. I think a lot of them didn't have the confidence or courage to go to the the pay model. And so they decimated their staffs and much of what we see now at the regional level is, you know, lists sponsored content one of the websites in New Jersey. The other day had a story about, you know, should you? Try a a shamrock shake. And I'm like, you know. What are we doing? What are we doing here is this shamrock shake? I mean, I mean, I'm assuming it's green. But but what does it consist of beyond the green food coloring there? I don't know. Mcdonald's of Bonilla Mitch MacDonald thing. I should have known that that goes back a while shamrock, right? Right. Right. Right. We're speaking of Martino, and we're talking about the newspaper industry, and we're talking about his new novel gods of wooden stone. Mark Kriegel, another friend of the show and a friend of mine road of gods of wood and stone. It's not a baseball novel to stroke. What really afflicts American men disappointment? I'm assuming you agree with Mark. Why does disappointment of flicked us now? Well, let me first start by saying Moore left me a voicemail about how much he loved his book, which I would like to share with you, please. You can't put it on on the air. Oh, why not come on is it profane? Yeah. Right. Exactly. But I think I this. This is very interesting. Because when I when I when the agent bought the book or decided to represent the book, he said to me, you know, this is gonna be a tough sell because nobody wants to read about a couple of disillusioned white guys. So I said, well, that's 'cause you guys don't put anything out there for us. And as nearly sarcasm and your later, Donald Trump was elected president. Right. So without accidentally I had no idea that he was gonna run accidentally, you know, in Horace Muller Mueller. I kinda created, you know, a guy that would say we need something different. Here's something chain. No more politicians involved in last name surnames to have chosen. At this particular time. Right, right. Is yours is is it a is it a Muller or is it a Mueller because obviously Robert is a Muller. But but it was hard for me to tell from the book. The I think it's a Mueller Mueller based on the sort of the German pronunciation, and the German heritage of of of this of of of the of the character. So I think that, you know, watching my industry fall apart watching so much anger in the country, and the wealth disparity, and you know, guys getting downsized left and right. Yeah. I think there's a lot of disappointment in the country. And I also think it we lack perspective sometimes about how the rest of the world actually lips. And we should show more gratitude for what we have rather than what we don't, you know, decry what we don't. We're bemoan what we don't. But. And I think for the ball player. I think the Joe Grundig is the characters name. And I think his narrative is about the Elliott nation of celebrity, which I think you can really relate to how and people in Oregon, not if you if you're suggesting that I'm a celebrity, but certainly I've been around celebrities who've been alienated. You know, I'm sure you had your share of people walking up to dinner and be, you know, while you're in an intimate conversation with someone and beginning to tell you how much they love the show, the you usually they think I'm Adam Schefter. But I gotta tell you a funny story go about this. I was with Joe Passarge one day. And we were where there was some talk at three guys came up a bit said Joe you remember that play. Come on. I hope it wasn't Herm Edwards. Like, you would believe how he times a day. The tap. It's like I want to say, no what play you talk about. No. That was in me that was SIMS. Larry Larry csonka was the one who actually dropped the ball. That's right. That's right. I saw with with stars in my lifetime as as a as a sports writer. You know, the way the fans began to treat them inhabit, entitlement. And a lot of you know, venom started coming out of the stands and anger. And I think that this is this was interesting because it was as the ticket prices rose as it were as as was it because these guys were becoming in a more rarefied group. You know, my dad used to tell me, and I'm sure your dad told you, you know, how Phil Rizzuto and you Ford used to have used to sell suits in the off season and things Packers. They were shoe salesman. Those guys, you know, you need you. Did you needed another job? Right. The real salaries didn't go up for like forty years. It's it's true. And I think that somewhere along the line as much as people love. Sports. And I think you saw this with the kneeling football players, and you know, obviously, there's a racial racial element to this too. But I think people love sports, but they've begun to hate athletes. You know, there's certain athletes that are lovable and people like, but you know, there's just so many examples of bad behavior by athletes, and and these kind of stories that keep coming out, and it it's it's a really interesting conflict. You know that I see like, well, we have people come and cheer these guys on. But then when they get in some kind of trouble, or they're, you know, they're they're the ridiculed or Lampoon's. So that was one element of it. I mean, it's the same kind of Adam silver was talking about. And he was met with, you know, a lot of a lot of criticism for saying, you know, that athletes, you know, no matter how rich how famous, you know, the they're living in an age of anxiety in they're constantly, criticized, and they can see it immediately on social media. And it's it's it can make the miserable. Whether or not everybody looking at them from the outside says, you should be happy. I it's one of the conundrums of modern life. Yeah. And I think that that the the the the extrapolation to social media, you know, with that we've seen this the transcendence of cruelty, you know, that we that now now takes place, and so it's not now just a guy yelling at you from the stands. They just suck. It's you know, guys taken videos of you, you know, opinion behind a trash can or some. Something it's it's this constant constant ridicule. I, you know, if a guy guy gets in trouble video goes viral, and everybody's everybody's got an opinion about it. Sometimes there's no context to that opinion where or to what the video shows. And I think that, you know, for the the athlete in my book, you know, he he has witnessed this change and one of my favorite scenes in the book is when he knows his mother's in the stands. And it's the first time he here's somebody yell. Hey, you know, grew two you suck. And he's embarrassed for mother because in her world that is not a word that's normally used and and so there's this like real human element of the athlete like, you know, he wants to go up in the stands and throttle somebody, but he realizes he's just in this fishbowl. And I think that that that is really part of the theme of the book. Is that Elliott nation of celebrity that for these athletes once once they're retired? Once once he's going into the hall of fame, and he begins to realize all he is is who he was and that that's going to carry through the rest of his life. And he's gonna go to old-timers day and people are going to look and say Jesus Christ what happened to Joe critic. It looks like how you know. And I think that's that that nation of celebrity kind of watching that as a sports writer with interesting to make Martinez new book is God's of wooden stone. And it's been a pleasure having you here on the show, Mark. Thank you so much for your insights. And we hope to have you back talk about sports and society again. Okay. Jeremy, thanks so much. I appreciate it very much. Thank you. I'm Jeremy shop, and you can listen to new editions of the sporting life every Saturday and Sunday morning on ESPN radio and ESPN app. Beginning at six AM eastern time.

Yeah crazy love. Is the documentary on net flicks. Beat beat out of you. Yeah somebody's out of you but sometimes they're good sometimes good but it's very rare and most of the time you end up seeing them reset you you know what I mean when you when you go through like Universal Studios are not scary farmer would it. There's so many people that these would all be a great if you it's just you going through the maze and then you know you wait like twenty seconds for the next person but because you're just there with like a long stream of people people who knows if there was one at the Hollywood hayride and now is not the first time I went through that man. There was something that happened. It was so scary. They threw a garbage can at us or something. Like hit right next to the HAYRIDE. It's hit right right next to us.

But it's like there was. I remember like I had to think back like wasn't on the ticket. There was no when we bought the ticket. Nobody said just breath oh it's all strobes. Yeah that's scary. It's more just disorienting. I feel like I went on the haunted Hayride for the first time like two years ago and at the end end the last thing was all about trump like it was scared trump house blue. That was the year that skeleton. Yeah I wanted to skate over. Scandal auto skeletons not always the president. It's just a bummer. Yeah and it's every day anyway with as president boy.

I went to not not scary farm with Paul and Neil Campbell once checks out and what did they every every maze. I don't know how you know how because I don't know if you've been on the other side of have you scared people in mazes before a few places. Yeah in high school. We did a charity. One at the the school did one when I was. I think two years before freshman year and the report of them and anyway. So I've done over the years but you pay. You can always tell you you you WanNa pick someone you're going to scare and not the people are like. Oh very scary. You know you want it scare the shit so I don't know what it was but every maze that we went into. Oh every monster focused on Neil Not Paul they all just like like a beeline towards towards. Neil what's going on. What's happening in the one? I hate the universal studios and stuff. They can run right up to you when you're walking around. That makes me very uncomfortable that they can be just a guy. It looks like Zombie. Just like run or skates oftentimes. They're on those like Wiley sneak. Come up to do that. I don't know why scares you scary. But it's like why are they snorting because it scared you. Yeah I mean it worked the company there you go.

And she is the maddest I've ever seen her and she met her purse. Yeah matter than that purse and she like went home and didn't talk to me for a few days and and it was like it was her and then we went to the place I went by myself and he was. She would have hated it was we had to crawl into a dugout tunnel in the the ground. Some really liked those those places where they're like make you do stuff. There was one that I heard about where it's like. You walk into some weird room and then you'll see people having sex and the twisted and weird and then you go to another room and you and you get to lash on on you or your loved you get handcuffed and like a dominatrix comes over you and just just start spanky you and you have to like it. But I don't like the idea of being out of control I want to be able to leave. Yeah Yeah right I like it to be kind. I'm more of a show. Yeah I don't want to be looking into.

I don't get to God the three boys and then back so I put it out on twitter. I 'cause I really was so curious about about it I said should i. Is it dumb if I buy. Is it a bad idea. If I buy the soundtrack right. Oh Yeah and listened to it before that. I said You told me not to listen into. What's it called D. Hanson odor of? And then I did it and then I thought but I might have been more excited to see it if I hadn't. How did that affect you? Did you like him just as much I I liked to because I loved the songs by that point. I was really excited to hear all the songs I filled in a lot of the halls. 'cause I didn't know all the plot apartment. Yeah I couldn't figure everything out from the soundtrack because they leave the yeah. Well that's my that's my point is when you listen to cast album before you see the show you don't get you. Don't get why the songs are good because you don't know what's happening but here's the thing. Okay so people said you should. I listened to the original concept Al right because then you get the whole story. Yes you posted. Bonnie Blair made that all the songs or something boone. Her why we posted a screen. Grab a bag. I did post a screen. Grab they had like so. It was sorta like sometimes in a musical. They they make a an album about it. I such as Jesus Christ superstar Evita Compete. EAT NO EVITA. That wasn't a concept album. I I think it was the yeah so but no it was. Yeah it was just donau anyway. Which one and then they base a musical Haiti's down your find and I spoke to these guys are on their phones? It's Germane remain to this guy. Well he does a slap. Justin Vernon is Bona's goanywhere. Aveiro my word that Bruce Wayne is man one of the funniest things in Jillion dollar properties was Ryan gone. Andre Tarver doing one of the talking heads segments characters and so it's like You know he's like Bruce Wayne and he's like you know it's like Batman and Ryan says Bruce Bam right like how the idea that you would know of the fictional character that you would both fictional characters. I feel like that's Kevin Sessia thing i. I think it's a tremendous joke. Has I remember. We all wrote those before they happened. And I'm pretty sure Kevin that one via it's funny. It's a good one. Yes I will take the credit away from Ryan and transferred. Ah Good stuff good stuff staff. Anyway she wrote the music as Mitchell. Okay like the continental yes I love it.

What are the songs where people are just standing there not singing and not doing anything we WANNA be in it so the concept album is not the same songs things? It's just I think it's many if not all of the same sometimes apparently album and they'll do different things with it once it actually gets. Apparently there's a there's A. There's there's a couple of different versions. There's the concept album. Then there's the original Broadway cast and then there's the cast. That's I initial.

You caught up back from Japan so you basically started doing his instagram stories stories. I wish I was doing a rare. You're reviewing it right now. You and I would text each other's really got caught fire a little bit meanings a handful of people like when I do it took the tax chain. It's just me and her bachelor. There's other there's other topics you could tell me. You're watching your. Let me see if there's we've discussed any other topics duty to the bachelor on my story story in a in a quick amount of time a lot of scheduling stuff happened a lot of scheduling stuff between us and then a bachelor thing. I sent you a video about the bachelor slur when you were in Tokyo and then some gossip Oh boy about people. We don't know celebrities having celebrity. Oh and then you sent me these pictures that you took me where I'm I'm on my God. It's so funny with a snapchat filter. Oh no one I saw you posted the plus him again and then Oh and then we talked about Something that we can't talk about but We talked about how. How interesting is a lot of stuff here? A lot of stuff pollinate text about we have a private chain to do. What about so I? We're talking about twitter dot com and then Paulo. He sends me like dogs that I should follow through funny dogs on twitter's Vince one Owen. From all kinds of what's owens. Looks like a weird puppets tongue sticking out. Okay and I told I told Paul about this Japanese toilet. Experience common toilets so it's basically a rectangle hole in the ground. No I don't think ever seen it looks at a urinal laid down onto onto the floor. Taking these are women's restrooms mannered. They're just women's but I came across them in women's restrooms and I was was always afraid of that because when I went to Japan a couple of years ago. The first one that I saw when I was in the airport was this and it was a hole in the ground. Basically a hole in the ground bar on the wall and I was was like lean squad over the thing and it really intimidated me especially because I was really like the for like you were like I'm not trying this and then the first you you like hovered above it rose up to me the craziest to us but I was so afraid that I was going to get peace over myself if I if I just did it wrong. Yeah Yeah and then I told Paul about it and I did use to tell him I did it. They had to because I did great. But and what did I say in return. He was proud of me. I did it like a baseball diamond. Like they had like a little public restroom there and I went in and at that point. We've been walking so much we were talking about. How when you when you want to ten miles a day did the same thing and it was like my whole ministering the wrong shoes so my back was hurting so much and then I had to piece? Oh bad until I went in and I did did it. But I almost couldn't get up because I was squatting holding onto the bar but I would they do. This is the purpose I heard so much. That was Idaho with all of my no. So get up if you have to do a poll up to get off a toilet. What are we even doing? Is You know we're working our core. But I was so impressed by wondered also if and maybe someone out there can tell me or I could google but if the bar is more for like people older people or people who don't know how to use these toilets and if typically you don't need the bar if you know gas use the bar you know what I mean. Nobody was like you were sort of like you're in a rollercoaster. You is holding onto it. Well I mean if you're just squatting over something you don't need a bar. I guess if I was wearing a dress or something it'd be easier but if my the pants on I would get peeled I guess. How far do the pants go down to like knees or their pants? You mean when I pulled him uh-huh I pulled him down past my knees past your knees like what does shoes. I didn't pull them to the Hugh so between me and shoe Catholic normal for the pants over your knees as illegitimate questions and making you the picture you do you pull your pants all the way down has your okay Paul. Have you seen this where you go into a men's restroom voice and someone one of the urinal has their pants all the way down. Boy Yes a grown ass straight on earth would ever do that. What is the reasoning? If if you're out there and you do it and then you have some are doing well stop doing it but also we. Hey sorry but it's weird to see. There's probably got to be a reason. But like what. Just not getting pioneer pants. If you're going through the get it I also I honestly don't know it's it's beyond me. Why guys do that? It's crazy I also. I think it's still. I think it's weird to have urinals. They should be outlawed. Why can't you just have privacy? Yeah well I'm all for that I don't like instead of making that's gross when you go to the movie theater instead of having one big room. That has a lot of places for a lot of people to go to the bathroom instead. Make like thirty little bathroom. This is great. They should just just be all over the place surprise every movie theater. There's doors everywhere sometimes you'll be brickwall squall pups. That's fun sometimes the scary clown have you. What's the craziest? If if you've ever used the craziest toilet new ended up talking about this. I don't think that I've ever made even been on a crazy toil. I've never encountered a day. Oh Japan is all about. I want one so bad. Well I will say they didn't realize it when you're up and stuff. They're usually a separate toilet bear when we were just in Japan. I will say that anytime. You walked into the bathroom. It had a motion sensor that might lake toilets. Please me I warm. Does the press a button that makes like water sounds so covers the sound of you going. Oh I had a friend who when we were in a musical together we had a are dressing room. had a tiny bathroom and he always would like blast the sink on. Yeah and then sing. Because he just didn't want any noises to be. I don't think I would ask the other person to sing. I wouldn't WANNA be singing right but even but if we had this in America when you're in a public bathroom with stalls you could have sound going going to sound of like parts. Japan is so much better than America. Yeah I've always said that everywhere. I also use a hole in the floor. One time in France old restaurant downstairs base snapshot I went down there and they had was a hole in the floor. It was like a toilet hole but it was. They had seats. That explains isn't it was a very small hole in the ground. And they were feet marks and there was a house Moses hole like quarter size and shit in it perfect aim and and then there was a button or a foot pedal on the wall to flush and Water Air so Sifiso's pedal was crazy. Consider that there is a ton of toilet. Yeah Gimme some guys by the way back to screen. And everyone's like pointing turnaround i. I can't turn around. Oh the MIC. Won't that one. They're taught okay now. They're looking at pictures Lawrence. I presume that restaurant France actually in the what the listener is like wondering what was there. was there a bench tour sort of thing as just. It's just a hole in the ground like they take it out. I went and it was. It was what the toilet was supposed to be sure there was no elevation to it. It was literally. It was nothing like the Japanese one. It was just a whole. Would you recognize the phrase out of order in French. If you saw do not come in here. It's possible Americans shitting the shooting in our. That is funny because I feel like anytime. You're in a strange situation. You just go with it like I'm supposed to shit here lady ladies possible. I was somehow wrong but I don't think so. Where are you doing in France? That was on a trip my family I was like a teenager. Why are you interested did you? Yeah did you speak any French of the tunnel. I don't even know. Where did you speak it? I didn't it's still don't never will never will never will. Did you take a language or took Italian. I did that in college for two years but I did. Spanish from seven converse in Italian talion a little bit short and I got Sammy theather Biaggi. That's about it that was cool earls. I like I I like girls I like. I like A. You'll feel vomiting with a loophole. I want to go to Italy. Hungry like the wolf. No I just want pizza. Who My gosh? What is the next place on your bucket list? Italy is probably yeah. You've been there then. We went to France and England. And I'm sick of England sick of the English list. People love it. You like England anglophile and now I just. I've added still many English people recently. I'm just like God giving the bomb Tom. I was just remembering. We went to Paris for our degree for the common core the protest and I we went for our anniversary a few like almost ten years ago. Now now my gosh it was a while ago it was like like twenty nine.

Yeah Yeah I it was it got bigger. I was not again how could I could. I went to sleep after work.

And you're like hun or not honeymooning but like having an interesting Iran's you don't WanNa be like this sucks you you know. It was great. It was a great time. I forgot that that happened until January reminded me recently. That's how good a time we had but then I had to have it like essentially what do they do labbe and deflated. They land something.

Dr Pimple. Popper no go ahead. DALEAS IS YEAH I. I don't liked to do specific gender things but this seems like a thing that women are women really like some something about that. Uh I also liked to do that. I think it's because men have penises that erupt and so we're good on in that respect bar and women WanNa make make the pizzas I your you're grown grind term for what actually happens rob. I'm going to anyone you're and said I'm suddenly one of you. So scared when the ghouls were targeting him he just good stuff. What was the thing Neil said I remember? When we were touring? The balcony of the hotel room and it was about. India was nuts. Not Letting we not told this story we have. I don't think we on the bank all my best of a crime but which tells it all all these allergies shallow balconies. There's cool excited about these rooms. So we're getting into the car to go to the show and Neil all said anyone else go out on their balcony right and I think we all said No. Yeah we're like no because he was super windy and he said I did. He's always well. It was Wendy and it was cold and I was scared so went back inside. It was like yeah. I got scared I went back inside and like there was no reason why in Westwood go because it was so yeah but then he just wanted to tell us that he was scared. Air Did he got frightened but he doesn't get why it was funny. We were crying about it for ten minutes. We re acclimated probably astonishing. But I guess because I was like we all shared experience right now. You have to tell us what it's like. Yeah I guess he thought we all went out on our balcony would've yeah. He thought we were all going to go. Yeah so frightening scare. It opened our balcony saw. The weather laughed so hard. You couldn't stop. Yep I don't know it's been a while I feel it's maybe like that. That's that's special. Yeah I always get jealous when somebody's laughing like that and I'm not really thinking it says money but I wanNA laugh a lot. You know I hope you say to the person it's not that funny. Come on the best thing you can do. I hate that when someone buzzkill worst. Yeah I feel like I come close to it on this show a lot. I think I know Laura. Nah Yeah I'm going to erupt backward the secretary. I feel like I love. I didn't know what he's like. Why are you a secretary longer here? Bosses is coming into that. I get that euphoric laughing here where it gets very silly I yeah I agree. My cheeks are very sore right now. Who I'll bet the bikes squeezed Schormann? No I I love to look. I love to laugh loud and long and clear that's cool. I love to laugh. Did I tell you when I was in in high school and I say the rule. How many years after your freshman year is this? This was. This was three years after my freshman year and we did. We did that. Illegal version of Mary poppins called the practice fanatic. Before Broadway show. I did version of Mary poppins. I couldn't even tell you if we paid the rights. We definitely did not because you had to change so much. Yeah okay. Essentially this was the the movie script adapted for the stage. Yeah I did did Aladdin. The year after the Disneyland came out and it was not the Disney'll Adnan. Everyone was bummed. Yeah that sounds lame. Don't you dare not shut your eyes uh-huh and we did so this. I played Bert. The chimney sweep and he was called Bertha Chimney. Sweep in this. Oh you know every everything. Everything was his aim. Here's the thing was just entitled so no one who owned the rights to Mary poppins. We'd come. Is that what it was. They changed the title but at certain point to cover a big wardrobe and set change. They roll down a screen and they showed a scene from the movie. That's crazy nuts. It was it was not so. I'm playing birth chimney. Sweep we're doing. The uncle is an uncle. Albert is the guy you're the Lin Manuel Miranda Halsey. Well the Dick Van Dyke no linneman. Well the only version fair enough fair enough. I was yellow them in this and we visit we visit. What was the Meryl Streep Character? This was played by Edwin. Plays Uncle Albert who is related to Mary poppins. And he's also vaguely magical. But when he laughs chiefs feeling so then everybody starts having their flying over the ceiling. And so how did you pull that off for you on rope. Let me tell you. The kids hits the two kids and Mary poppins Ron Wires there on big heavy cables. which when they got hauled into the crazy? In retrospect I remember doing High School shows I think and maybe a college show where people were using the Foley fly system. Yeah and on wires and that in retrospect is fucking crazy eighteen eighteen in charge of well into of Peter Pan like the horrible Peter Pan that goes awry. It's like a school production and hot wires and it's so how funny this American Life I don't know but the kids basically keep going up when they don't expect it well this would be. It's like Mary. Competence will be standing there. You know very statuesque holding her umbrella and the raising of the umbrella was a signal for her to fly away right. Take me like Jerky is on my keep it together and act smooth. But but she's behold up on a rope. Yeah it's it's not like a sophisticated system right so the key. The two banks children and Mary poppins run their cable. They're all the exact same age. That's that's exactly right and myself and Uncle Albert are on wooden platforms like just columns. It's covered with black DUVA teen right to make it appear as if we're just floating okay so we had to like keep. We had to be sitting like this with our legs and arms out and so my stomach hurts so bad variety show because we have yet to stay upright to you know convey the allusion and it was really probably they were allowed to everybody People afterwards we're like how did you achieve. You thought you were actually lying. But you're are you a witch versus looking at you going. Oh He's sitting on a thing. You felt a responsibility. Your legs totally. It was led. Glad we will join you. Were like just just like look. I love to laugh I. Mary poppins old banker. Oh sure it's a good. It's a fun one and we're seeing half of the new one on the plane and it's worth seeing every and every other I UH-HUH I was enjoying it but I got tired of having seen the old ones I remember.

Everyone has a dream even dog dog stream. Yeah I think that dreams. What are you going to say? I don't know it's weird. That dogs have dreams in is weird. Because what are they really know. First of all I guess Idaho because they're like jerking around sometimes imply that's the thing about uh-huh anytime there's a fact about nature. I'm like how do you know that where they go. Oh a dog can do this this and this and this like well. How do we know we've never talked to a dog? We know we don't know maybe their bodies just tweets when they sleep. Yeah maybe they're dead at night and they come to life is it's like toys and toys. Dogs are dead dogs dead when they're out of your line of vision even their dead. I'll probably see it way. I Sir I'm way behind him. I pick SARS. Yeah yeah I loved the Toy Story Franchise. I'm sure I'll just wondering what was I. Don't know if you care. Yeah but WHOA four is coming up and then you're like oh well he story and I thought I wonder if you guys would go see that theater yet. I don't know if I go see the theater.

Hello and welcome to the independence. podcasts live from downtown town Manhattan New York City. I'm your host Austin Philbin. This episode the intersection between elite athletes and business. I'll be joined by. Hi Frank Zeca managing director at fess wealth and Ryan Cafaro a professional mixed martial artists. Elite athletes spend years honing their physical skills in order to compete at the professional level for many of these individuals training playing in recovering consume. Most of their physical and mental focus for this discussion will examine the elite athletes from a few different points of view. Frank Zaka a former collegiate athlete and now head of O.. F. S. wealth. We'll we'll discuss the tools. He uses to assist pros with the management and growth of their wealth and Ryan Cafaro professional mixed martial artists. Striking coach and breakfast specialist will discuss his focus and mindset as well as the lessons he has learned from helping train champions so before we go any further Ryan Would you like to explain what it means to be a breakfast specialist. That sounds interesting Well I posted that on my My instagram because I sort of had a thing for a while where every couple of posts out always posted breakfast photo and I you know like if you've ever heard of the rock talk about his anger and his anchor is being his history. Workout my anchor for a long time has been waking up and going through the ritual it making myself a very well balanced breakfast to fuel myself for the day so I had a tendency to shaw. My Breakfast Nice Gut it. The the focus of today's his episode is around the intersection between elite athletes and business as a general category. We'll get more specific into to wealth management financial services. But I think it'd be helpful for anyone that's listening contemptuously. For Franken Ryan just to give a little betty your background and what you do and then we'll delve into some questions that I have for the both of you so frank. If you wouldn't mind maybe give just a brief overview of S Wealth yourself and how you get to where you are Charleston. Thanks thanks for having me on the show I am the Managing Director Office. Wealth and we specialize in financial planning and investing for professional athletes. I've been in here for twenty seven years after doing a stint on Wall Street at various jobs and grew up on long island in Brooklyn the son of a New York City Cop. So it's been it's been interesting ride but we have a group of eighteen people and we work with two hundred seventy five professional athletes across all sports pretty much around the world great. How about you Ryan I am a professional. Well thank you for having me on the show as well. I'm a professional mixed martial artist. professionally National League type fighter And I currently am coach to some of the top. UFC athletes in the world. Including you know Frankie Edgar are you Satori eubanks Marlin Mariah's And I have been in the industry of professional fighting since two thousand nine so about eleven years now great. I think it's interesting when you think back similar to the evolution that we've had within the financial services area area and frank you can touch on some of those There's also been a a a fairly decent amount of what I would say evolution within the mixed martial arts community and for those that are unfamiliar with what that means mixed martial arts is just like it sounds it is a combination of different. Fighting styles deals that are utilized in either a cage or a ring and one of the most prominent brands That people might be familiar with would be the the alternate fighting championship or the. US's there's been quite an evolution of of that sport overall. They're gyms all over the United States now. But I'd be interested. Let's start with you frank if you think back to twenty years ago when you started in financial services to the way in which you're interacting getting with your clients today what are some things that have changed And what are some things that potentially could have predicted would have changed in some things that have changed that. There's no way way that you would have ever thought twenty years ago would end up happening within the wealth management space. Well the when when we when we started there wasn't a lot of public knowledge about financial planning investing athletes. Who just wasn't that much money? I work with a a couple of families that we have second generation Athletes who their dad or the MOM special athlete and now they are and the numbers are so different so it wasn't seen as even business financial planning professional athletes when we started we were really business. Madurese helping them Kinda hasten bills inducing taxes and then as the wealth started growing it became more of a more of a business. And there's been more notice on it from the big banks and people saying these guys now not make a lot of money. We have to do some stuff. So we've been lucky we just evolved. If you tell me what I didn't think I be doing and again I don't want to. I've been doing it for a long time. I didn't think that'd be texting. Twenty year olds about millions of dollars. And I didn't think I'd be. You know stays timing phone calls presentations. I'd never could have dreamed that I would have been doing that when I was getting out of business school and working on Wall Street back before cell phones and pagers and all that kind of stuff. But it's interesting that you mentioned that because if you think about the multi generational families that you have you could have had a mom or dad who made a very good living played at a high level in in professional sports and then had a son or daughter who are in the same sport but are now in a totally different well stratosphere so how how do you deal with that like what are what are some of the things in terms of challenges or issues that you now face given that professional athletes are making significantly more money than they were in the seventies and eighties so the the biggest one is all the press. Generally whether it's the the the the digital media or or the print media is always focusing on the athletes that went broke those are the stories even he. SPN Did a thirty for thirty ongoing broke pretty much so no one talks about the success in so the biggest battle is like you know the perception I all these athletes have. I have no knowledge. They all make bad mistakes and there is no way to handle it and we have not. I've not seen that mean. Our businesses evolved over time. It's been nice. Most of the professional athletes start by making no money to making a lot of money. So there's a lot of time in there to teach. There's a Lotta time to create some financial literacy in some exposure to things so it's not as sudden wealth as people think it is and I think that's important but for multi generational perspective with social media against us. A US read. Now you're reading about these massive successes whether it's like startups like like in like an uber or or facebook spoke Google and then you have these massive disasters whether it be like the stories of Mike Tyson or of no different athletes that have had struggles with there with their wealth. So that middle ground is just never covered and where we play and ninety eight percent of our businesses in that middle ground with guys. That don't make their money do their thing. They're near Kinda they're smart they learn and make good decisions great Surani said two thousand Nine Min contextual speaking two thousand six. The game was your backstage in a club with a bunch of other fighters warming up. And if you win you might make six hundred twenty five dollars or however many tickets that you can sell now. Some of that is similar today but the reality is there are celebrities like like a Conor McGregor or can't leave in the president a UFC. Dana white that are now become household names and fighters are making a lot more money in addition to money. When you think back to two thousand nine? What are some of the things that have changed from your perspective around the business of mixed martial arts well with with the The evolution of social media and and the change in the pay per view And this new you know the new sort of like his own model of the way that you can watch sports and watch fights every everything is starting to have like a a very dynamic ship People aren't becoming wing fighters in particular are becoming popular based on their social media not based on their actual skill set. Not Saying that. That is the only thing that's happening running. Because there are still very good fighters that improve and and move up through the ranks to become popular based on their skills. But I mean let's if you look at what recently happened happened on the zone boxing card. You had You had given Haney. Who is one of the greatest professional boxing prospects on his way up and he was on the undercard of to you respect so i? It's very interesting in the sense that you can. You can make a lot of money from this position. Where if you're a regional circuit fire you can still make money? It's it involves effort and involves putting yourself out there a lot more than than then I guess what would be previous so for example you know in two thousand nine. Instagram wasn't thing when I made my amateur debut in two thousand nine When I made my professional debut twenty thirteen you know? Instagram had just started. And now you know with with the people that I work with and the fighters that I've networked with but you know with with my following are created. You Know I. I'm able to collect a lot more sponsors and create business opportunities and you know because of my resume. I have people literally. So you just sending me direct messages on Instagram. Asking to hang with me. That's really interesting and I think it speaks to the fact that technology policy in all industries business Social what have you is definitely impacting the way in which individuals not only can market themselves. So but then can benefit from those marketing efforts Franken. I'm interested from your point of view. I I know we're very familiar with each other. And the things that you do for your athlete clients. How much has social The instagram facebook impacted not only their ability from a revenue perspective but again their concentration on being relying upon a sport or major sponsors to generate revenue versus alternative revenue streams that may be potentially people wouldn't even think about so. I mean I'm not on the marketing side of the business but I've worked with the agents and the markers with so many years it used to be that a company you would pay an athlete to show up somewhere and pay them. You know a fixed amount for their day And then it got to a little bit of likeness you you no you show up for the day but then they can use that that footage of those pictures for a certain period of time you get paid for that and now social media that footprint where you you know the the instagram. The twitter the the YouTube channel. Whatever it is that's driving most of the The revenue off off of the court the field the ring for for for many of these athletes that the corporations are looking at how the how they can influence and help drive sales because at the end of the day you know that that's that's sort of what it's about So it used to be again. The stars will always get paid. But you're finding this whole other group of athletes and people outside of sports. You know you just have influencers running around La and Hollywood doing their thing but you find that it you. You don't have to be a star in your sport you just have to be active on social media and how have a following. How have some sort of a message or mission in a attached to that we had a we have a client who played six seven years of six seven years of professional? Football got hurt. Had some injuries has some decent money put away and he's been doing some digital stuff with athletes kind of as a entertainer and kind of cool things. That's great traction. He has a whole second career making six figures doing that. Which is which is a pretty cool which is pretty cool transition from professional sports the rest of your life which You know in my business the key for all of these. All professional athletes find a way to transition from whatever. Sport is to what you're GONNA do when you're sport is over. And that's that's a really good segue which is not only the transition from professional athletics into quote unquote the real world but just some of the parallels between elite athletes and the mindset that those individuals need to have and then compare it to lead entrepreneurs and a similar type of mindset that those individuals would need to have. And so both of you. Are you know very. Oh well accomplished athletes in your own right but I think you also have the benefit above and beyond your own experience personally to have experienced training individuals frank on the financial side and Ryan actually training them in their craft. Now what are some things that you take away from these people all that separate themselves from being really good to being elite at what they do maybe Ryan. If you WANNA start there Ryan well well. It's interesting because what we've learned about. MMA and my sport in particular is that there is no right answer a lot of people. We'll do a lot of different things and maintain high levels of success even though everyone does everything differently Like to give you an idea. I've trained A. UFC Athlete Aquatic Aquatic Gazelle and. She is a very very successful female fighter. She's fought for the world title before and she's very meticulous about her expression. She's very meticulous about the notes she takes when she's training. She's constantly walking around with a notebook. she's constantly studying being evolving learning things. Like that and you can tell that everything. She does is very organized very well rounded in terms of like when she rests when she trained how how she's resting So I it's interesting to see that and then to also see someone like Frankie Edgar who train and to see his. His life is is almost very chaotic. In the sense that you know he's constantly running around taking care of his three kids but at the same time he constantly gets his working out soon and he he over trains like a maniac where he's always getting at least two or three workouts in a day probably seven days a week. But he's a bit of an anomaly in the sense that he has that sort of driving arriving and one of the moments that really stood out to me. When I was training Frankie once he was getting ready for a fight and I was holding pad form to throw a kicks and and he threw a kick and then sort of Winston? I was like you know your foot. Okay and he said you know bugging me a little bit. And then he threw a kick light 'cause he didn't want to continue engine to aggravate his foot and then some some switch went off in his head and he just started bombing kick with his leg is hard to cook for. PD So every fighter you know has some sort of different variation of what makes them great. And it's interesting to see the the difference between all these different fighters it's an and how they succeed. How successful lifestyle in and outside of the cage? That's that's a really good point. How about you frank? What do you think this I? I've seen three things. And they're they're they're tied to Certainly entrepreneurs and for sure the athletes work with. I do see I get to see a lot of the bills. What they pay eight for training so I know what they do but watching the most elite players I've worked with over the years three things? Stand out they work harder than everybody else. They just care more and they work harder and and whether a God given the best athlete or they're trying to make it they're harder workers they also pay attention to the details And this goes back to a Ryan was saying the elite athletes. We have our. It's nutrition training. It's stressing the little things that go into it. The the extra shooting basketball player the waking up at you know waking up at a different time to train if you have meetings has the other thing that will skip that for a second but those details matter the pivoting of their careers Over the course of being nineteen year old professional athlete to being a thirty four year old professional. Lathi your body changes in your style changes so you have to be able to adapt and pivot just like an entrepreneur. You Work Your Butt off. Things changed and second. This isn't working. We gotta to do this or you. Just can't run faster. Jump as high anymore so you gotta figure out a different way. We have an unbelievable professional basketball player. Who won the MVP EH and literally could have won the most improved player the next year? That sounds super counterintuitive. But when you all the best player and everyone's designed designed to stop you from being the best player. How do you maintain being the best player? You have to change something so that hard work the details in the pivoting and the only other other thing I would say there's a cool line from a an old Robert Redford movie and said you know when did no ability arc rate and he built it before or the storm and what I'm seeing athletes do today is a and we're doing this to it's in our best interest. Have our athletes play as long as they can in other words. Don't try to train when you're in your thirties do things when you're twenty four twenty five twenty six. That will allow you to play when you're thirty. Three thirty four thirty five ending Rankin improbably rank and agree and expound on that a little bit for sure because like if you wait till you're getting out of shape or if you wait to say you know it's probably too late plan for it get front of it and it's it's one of those three things that that I've seen from from are the elite guys that we work with to continue Hindi to that point and and make it specific to business. I think we all know People listening the best time to raise money. If you're a private business is when when you don't need it when things are going well more than likely There's not as much pressure to be able to go out and get capital. But what if you're in a a challenging capital market or economic situation and if you've over hired or oh you missed out on some technology and the company really needs money. I mean that's not the best situation to be in what you're talking about is laying down the foundation a proper habits early on your career so that you can have sustainability which is very similar to a business when we talk about building businesses. You have to think about not what you're doing today you've got a whole host of people frank. It's not like what you're doing today. It's building the business for the next. I five years for the next ten years and Ryan when you think about your career I mean we go back to two thousand nine if your desire or if you had made the choice to say I'm GonNa to give it one shot. I'm GONNA train as hard as I can. Twenty four hours a day seven days a week. And if I don't make it I'm out you wouldn't have had the sustained career. The you have had up into this point in many different ways. I mean you're still. When's your next fight? My next fight is November twenty third so I think what are we about a a little a shy of two weeks Out something like that two weeks out and it's for a title right. Yes it's I was supposed to fight the current ring of combat champion in who just pulled out about a week and a half ago with staff infections. Now I'm fighting for an interim title against a replacement opponent and that's fantastic so I mean this is something that you've been doing since two two thousand and nine amateur to pro and you've stuck with it. There are many people along that same life cycle. That would not have been able to do that are I. Just haven't whether they would could or should have they didn't and so it's a testament to you. I guess I would ask again coming back to the the whole parallel between business. I mean for you personally. What was that mindset? That allowed you to keep going in a sport where there's no guarantees for success. What is it that kept you every day waking up going to the gym eating correctly not going out and spending time doing things that you shouldn't be doing doing because they're unhealthy for you? What was it in your mind that you wanted to accomplish the kept going you know? I think one of the most important important things for me was studying the the people that beat me. And when when you when I go back and I look at the records of these guys for example I had a turning point in my amateur career. I was my record of time was to in two losses. And they put me against an undefeated amateur named Alex at the WHO's four now at the time and we fought at twenty three hundred arena in Philadelphia and it was an absolute barn burner of a fight. And you know. He ended up beating me by decision but you know we we. We brought the house down and people told me when loser draw was one of the most exciting fights they'd ever seen and he moved moved on and continued to be I believe seven or eight no as an amateur before he went pro and then as a professional he lost twice and he was not and then that was it he just moved on and and And you know I think I believe he runs a successful career teaching kickboxing owning an academy. Things like that but when when I lost to him I'm in such a way and then I realized you know if I can hang with these. You know these undefeated guys and and and do what I can in more than I thought. He was more skill than I am more talented it but if you look at careers now he's all into the pro and I'm fighting for you know my second shot at approach title and I feel like a lot of it is just is based on the fact that I was just willing to stay in it long enough. I feel like a lot and then when I was a professional and I lost my professional debut That guy wouldn't WanNa know and then colder. Today's well my record now is better than him. Because I'm despite the fact that I've lost to these guys. The losses are what what kept me going because I don't think I'm the most talented. I don't think I'm the best fighter I just. I'm willing to stick around a lot longer than a lot of these guys. That are better than me. And and it's just it's persistence and it's it's the long run. What about you Franken? You've like you said you've done multi generational final planning for families and I'm sure over the course of your career. You've had athletes who have signed huge deals with their on the team that was the the ideal spot for them. Given what they thought their skills could bring to that particular team and then for whatever reason it doesn't it just doesn't go well and I'm sure are you know some people even at the elite level and up and say all right. I'm just pack it in and then others take that as a challenge and go on to do. Oh great things. You have any experience with that anything that you'd like to share about the what is the mindset that helped the people that actually overcome overcome adversity. What worked for them? So I would say it's the it's the fear of failure more than the want to succeed is to competitive and in the competitive nature. And this is. This is where I feel like from a dealing with Mike Clientele the professional athletes. It goes kind of hand in hand when I played. I Played Two sports in college and I I was just I was. I was good athlete but more of a hard worker. I love the training. I love the fight. I love all that stuff. But I usually operated our out of fear of getting caught fear of fear of Of Not keeping your starting position. Whatever whatever it happened to be and there was no need for that especially in Highschool oncologists live more complicated but like there was a real need to have that fear but most of the elite players I have and the way they get through to the fear of failure on the they just they have such self pride and it goes back to that old adage you know i? It's easy to play. It's easy to play good and work hard in front of people. But what are you doing when no one's watching and you know go back to business or an entrepreneur like most most people will look at my job description and say wow. That's a great job like you know. Look cool that is you get to deal with. Athletes will at the end of the day. You actually came in Austin. I know you've been here right. You're in this office on most days of the week. This is far from cool. It's an accounting job. It's like it's spreadsheets. It's phone calls call it you know so it's just like you know it's just like the stuff that Ryan has to do that. I mean everyone watched Everyone watches a match right or the fight. That's whether it's on TV or the the crowd but no one seeing what he's doing today as he said before the call going from gym to gym stop eating at water during the workout that. That's that's that piece that keep going get and that's where the long game but the long game comes in. I think that I mean. That's that's an incredible point. Most of US I think most of us want to believe in this overnight. Success story where you see the individual whether it be in the field of a player battle with their hands raised winning the championship. Or even in business you know where a company goes through an IPO cells. People are made millionaire's in in you often read the headlines Millionaires overnight. Now look in both instances whether be athletics are businesses I'm I'm sure that someone could say yet. Here's a specific case where something happened overnight But the majority of the situations are not that it is toiling behind the scenes working really hard towards a goal that oftentimes shifts depending upon on the environment. And that. You've just gotTa keep going when I asked both of you. What were the key factors of the elite athletes that you worked with the examples samples that you gave were pretty straightforward out? Working are working harder than everyone else staying focused and Having many different ways to get to the same place which is being the lead. I think it all can be boiled down to an working really hard and so awesome and and so two to one sports story when one business story I was lucky enough to get to go to a dinner. that Jeff Bez a spoke. Oh Cat and they were talking about like when the beginning when Amazon was basically a bookseller. Right they were him in two partners. Were like on the floor in their office like boxing up books that were being ordered online shipping matt so that overnight success being the first or second depending on stock prices are the richest press in the world like yeah literally on the floor like boxing books books and people forget that the other one. That's the business side on the sports side and I use this with a I do a Lotta. I coach sports. It's kind of a hobby of mine. I like helping out young kids and being involved but they always talk about. They showed a picture one time where the highlight on their phone. That catch years ago that Oh Becca made in the back of the end zone with one on one hand right so I thought that was pretty cool. It's cool catching. He's not a client of ours but it's still local story the next week on the pregame shows in the NFL. They showed that Odell Beckham did make that catch but before every game. He's in the end zone and he catches like fifteen passes with his right hand in fifteen passes left-handed right. It's not luck that need it just. Isn't it anyway. I think that's a good point. I mean Ryan. Will we throw it to your sports. Specifically there was the Ben Aspirin and Hor or Hey Mazda doll fight that ended in very quick fashion in two seconds where Mazda flew across the ring and nailed him with the flying knee. You you would assume that that had been practiced win to So believe it or not I was actually in Las Vegas When I was talking about training Claudia she was on the undercard on that car and we were actually working out at USC? Foreign Institute and I first hand was watching a practice. That's lying nate right so so. It was quite literally practicing flying nate during the week and I was watching him you know slide back jump or at one point and at one point they brought it out later where he texted his coaches or coaches in Texas. His teammate. That Moslems gonNA run out and throw this flying need right off the bat and it was I. Ah I don't mean to Brag a little bit but I kinda or him Oswald before he did it because in twenty eighteen I would fought somebody named Jared Marcado and I watch tape on him and he said how when he starts every fight. He likes to run to the center of the cage. And it's sort of use that to assert his dominance like this is my cage and I listened to that in an interview and then I talked to my coach Aaron. And why don't we just sprint out with flying name in the face right off the bat since he runs to the middle and then and we practice it for a couple of weeks and then warming up in the back room. I was practicing like putting my hand on the cage rocketing off occasion during the flying me and my coaches like you know. If you're GONNA gotta do it do it and I was like Oh. I'm going to do it. And then as soon as the bell rang. I sprinted out real flying is hard that could drop them with it. I didn't get to finish in the first round. But I if if that had connected slightly to the right I'm probably would have had the fastest knockout in MMA history because it hit him one second into the fight right. I Maine so t to kind of summarize what we what we've all been talking about though the the moments the end results that seem so instantaneous or almost Hollywood ask in reality oftentimes from a business or even a sport sport like mixed martial arts where can be over so quickly or often the result of very careful planning very careful choreography a and that the end result whether it is a knockout or a sale of a business is actually the result of a lot of hard work and effort. And there's not really really an easy way just to get to where you WANNA go. It's it's okay to want something but it's very different to put in the work to get there. I have a question for you and this one for you Ryan might be a little bit more challenging to answer but you know how how difficult do both the view think that it is for athletes to move on and for you frank you know. How do you help? Individuals think about the next stage of their career Same thing for you. How are you Ryan thinking about the next stage of your career and What are some pitfalls that that can occur? Kerr as you go through this transition process from being a professional athlete to whatever your next year your career. So why don't we start with frank so this has been a big topic of conversation because I think that in my industry because the general rule of thumb is seventy percent of athletes go broke within three years of their career ending And those are usually. That's usually acquainted to again. Bad investments money being stolen lack of education the real truth there In my experience in talking to others that have similar the job to me in our in. Our industry is at dishes no second career and if you and the Mo the written in the papers as all the stars Tom Brady is and the people that have all this money but the most athletes just don't have enough money to play five or six years in professional sports then never work again so that that transition it is the most important factor. And what will you find. Success is is they had Who was just on? TV Phil Rizzuto. I watched the history of the Yankees Phil Rizzuto plates thirteen years for the New York Yankees. You know whatever seven or eight world championships. Yes you know hall of Fame All Star a couple of times. He was a broadcaster for thirty eight years for the Yankees. So he you three times three times the career span of being fresh I and he did that and this game. Will we tell most of most of the guys who work with keep he was able to get that job based on how how. He carried himself during his career in the city. He played if you as an athlete. You get to be around whoever you want to be around you get access to the CEO's the owner to Sweden owners to endorsers to just regular people who want to be around you if you're if you're a good person and you use those resources and you're authentic and people whatever the business happens to be and they like you you can set yourself up in that city for a very long time and that's the most important thing when you think about and again. I'm talking about the team sports. I Know Ryan you're you're pretty pull it. Probably the fight no money or a lot of money but the if the average athlete is for years in the average salary is one point. Five million dollars. It's just not enough money to have a transition so we find it. It's not really in the financial planning books but for financial planning for professional athletes transition in having a second second game plan is it has to be a priority. Yeah how about you Ryan I I would agree completely You know currently I would say for for mixed martial artists there. There aren't a whole lot of opportunities to transition into a job outside of martial arts if you do not do the correct things especially when you're in your car and career I mean if you look at some of these these fighters Also if you remember a Joe Diesel Riggs Yeah Yeah fighting on the same card as me and I and I'm thinking you know I'm like Joe Jewelry. I watched Joe Riggs fight in high school. What are you doing fighting on a regional promotion with Eh you know? Hopefully he doesn't listen to this because it sounds insulting. But point I'm making is that somebody of his calibre who's fought for the world title before shouldn't couldn't have to continue to fight on the regional circuit. That says one of two things to me then either says she didn't handle his finances appropriately or he still has that that fire fire. That just hasn't been a completely different issue in itself Eh. Needs to be tackled on a completely different podcasts. But the point I'm making it that if if you don't do the right things in the martial arts in martial arts community and in your career you definitely will not have a good future aside aside from maybe going into a bare knuckle. Boxing which is definitely something. I do not WanNa do when I'm fight right But I also agree a lot on on what what was it previously if you do the right things and you talk to the right people you network appropriately and you are a a genuine person. There are a lot of opportunities that can be provided You know my my team Paul. WHO's currently in USC? Now one of the top broadcasters and color commentators for the sport because you know no he had an acting background you know. He talked to the right people and did the right thing. Nail the audition and so you know. He's set for life as a commentator when he's done fighting fighting and and not a lot of people are are in these sort of positions. But it's like you said if you do the right things to prepare that you can You can definitely set it yourself up. You just have to be smart about your finances the the money that you do make when you have it and and to not you know go crazy and get sucked into the The party rock star lifestyle. I think you both use similar words which was authentic or authenticity and being a genuine and for me the way that I I look at individuals that are interested in becoming an independent financial adviser or becoming me a client of dynasty above and beyond the the process of getting them comfortable with what that means I I always say at some point. The reality is the job that I want to what I WANNA do as a person is help you make a decision. I want to give you as much information as possible. I want to be able to answer your questions in authentic way only because because I feel that if nine out of ten people don't decide to become a client at least those ten people will that received some information that might be helpful towards them in making a decision. And that's why bring that up because I think it comes back to if you're out out there and you're doing the right things and whether it's lending a hand to hold you know pads for somebody that are getting adding ready for a fight or it's being able to sit down in the middle of a house in Detroit Michigan And Talk to a family to get them comfortable comfortable around you taking care of their children's financial advice financial assets etc.. That's the extra level you we talk about this frank. You and I talk talk about this all the time. The the way in which people become a client as an athlete is not by looking at a website. It's not by you showing up after the first contract. It's by you going and sitting with mom and dad or whomever the Guardians are whoever. The coaches coaches are and letting them know that you're there to help and they're gonNA make a decision and sometimes it's hard to make that decision because there's a whole host of contributing factors other people involved but ultimately if you do the right thing and show up you have a much better chance than saying why is nothing happening or it's really hard to break into this line of business. Yeah I mean for for us. It's all in the. It's all in the details on the Front End Alameda on meet a family and went to great meeting and we have sort of a track record in the business and we know people we can point some clients but almost every new client that we work with I we try to go see them in creating sort of client experience and we're trying to see them once every three or four weeks while they're not paying us any money on the front end to build the bill to trust because the quicker weaken the quicker we can create some financial literacy and create the level of trust. The more we can do. What's right for the clients so on the front end? It's all about being being. They're getting you know again. It's not glamorous. It's getting on a plane. Hang out with mom and dad and understand the different family dynamic and talking to the player and US making they get it It's it's developing the trusting again. The same thing is if you're a you're a trainer for in Ryan can can talk about this as well. Well if you if you're going to train somebody in a different manner than what they're used to doing it. They have to trust that. You're doing it for them hundred percent and although you're getting paid I mean they will know me I'm Brian. I don't think you do it for free. You train people and you get fees right. Well you gave absolutely. You're something so at that point they have to trust. You know you're doing what's best for them and you'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA be there and part of being there is not when things are going. Well I found found also over the years I get the most I miss utility in the client relationship. Like I WANNA be the guy who's showing up a coin when you know kind of after an injury when things aren't going going well or you know instead of going seeing player in La or New York where you know a notch cities but you know. There's a lot of things for those players to do. Go see Milwaukee the Milwaukee in the winter or Indiana on a road trip with nothing to do sit in a hotel room and you can show up. I mean all that matters to get to the the final goal. The final goal is to be able to give great advice or the right training and how the player listen and act upon. You know your advice and that's expects it takes time to acquire that. Yeah what do you think Ryan. Yeah it definitely takes a lot of time to build up trust to to do something like that the the these athletes a lot of them have very small circles. Frankie Edgar as a small circle fulfill their heads small circle. They don't WanNa work with people that they don't trust and for you to to to break into that circle of trust I. It involves a couple of things I think it involves competency and your skill set in both confidence in what you teach and it also involves like we said before being authentic and being Jesuit because a lot of these people that are around yes-men all the time and they're around these people that just want to ride at the coachella successful athletes and when they're in it long enough. It's a matter of time before they start recognizing who is there to help you and who is there help sell right on your name. I mean those those are points and there's actually very direct relationship I think to due to wealth management by what you just laid out of how to gain confidence or favor from somebody that you're training right so many people say i. I like to get involved in the ultra high net worth space or I'd like to get involved with the athletes space rank. You hear it all the time and just like anything else in order to do that you have to be able to have a set of skills or competency and then you also have to be confident in those set of skills and be able to get to those individuals and then do it in a way that they can understand. It's a mutually beneficial relationship. If your whole press into something new from a business perspective in wealth management is simply to make more money than the likelihood of you having success in that particular segment is going to be limited but if you take the time to understand what really matters to a doctor her to a pilot to an educator and then you're able to develop a team An said deliverables that can help those individuals with their financial chill life. I mean that's it and it's when I say that's it I mean that's that's the hard part getting to that. Did all the toiling behind the scenes. That's what it takes in order to be successful in certain niches. I'm going to. I'm going to change gears prior to both you coming on the line. I had a conversation conversation. We were talking about how athletics is one of the last kind of meritocracy. There are I mean I'm sure again people could point to other ones and what I mean. More specifically about that is in sports. There's generally not a lot of uncertainty eighteen. I mean of course there's draws ties and things of that nature but mostly you have a winner and a loser and in business that that's not not that's not always the case. I mean it can be boiled down but I would argue that there are there's less transparency around what winning as an employee what winning as a business. What winning as any other number of variables means on a day to day basis? So I'll ask both of you. I I mean Ryan from your sport and frank from all of your experience within various sports. What are one or two lessons that somebody? That's an entrepreneur could learn from sports or from athletes or for many of the people that you work with. So why don't we start with you Ryan I would say that if if there's something that an entrepreneur can take away from the athletes Some some of it has to do with you know. Just just taking care of yourself I think that too many entrepreneurs get too caught up in in their business and their craft and then they don't take a step back and really make sure that they're they're maintaining homebase which is their body it seems Kinda superficial and but if you don't take care of your health and Your well-being your entrepreneur career is going to be very very short just like it would be as a pro athlete. You know if you're if you're one of the pro athletes that is ah genetic freak. That can eat McDonald's all the time. And you're continuing to do something like that your pro-career you're doing yourself extreme to service and cutting your career short by doing things like that. What about you Frank Ryan I? It's so interesting I mean. I'm not an entrepreneur. I don't feel like one but I've taken it. I take that art. I've taken upon myself for the last like seventy years to just stay in great shape for a couple of reasons one I've worked too hard into my if these that I wanted to enjoy the next twenty years and whether it's one of the trainers told main players might well how change from when I used to work out as a football player are in a Lacrosse player. To how do I work out. Fifty like look you guys got like core strength balance all the things you lose in your seventies start working on that right now so I've actually started. I'm doing that. And what I what I've found is the athletes. I work with really really liked the fact that I do that. And part of it is. There's so much younger than me. If I WANNA keep keep my client base I gotta be around for a while like we basically just say exactly what you're saying. I mean some of the clients. We signed this summer in nineteen twenty years old. So you you gotta you. What's the point of working so hard if I'm not going to be able to enjoy or do or give a go? Walk through an airport with bags and go see these guys in five or six years. So that's so I'm glad to hear you say that one of the things. I think that the entrepreneurs can learn from the athlete is and I don't care if it's a team sport guy or a individual athlete you you've got to trust your team and you have to build a good team around you obviously the GM's are building the teams around the around some of the Some of this star athletes. But you have to build a team trust them let them do their job. You can accelerate your job. I wish I was better at it in my own career. It's something I strive for. I'm just it's not very good at it but I've seen business owners who who do a great job of that so I think if you're a entrepreneur and you WANNA look at Roger a federal Roger Federer's team that's around him the reason he appears the way he does whether it's his look. His fitness talent. His wealth he clearly has a strong team around him that he lets them do their jobs. So that would be the biggest takeaway I would say and people kind of forget about what goes on behind the scenes for a lot of these. Allow these people. That's that's really interesting and I think it comes back to some of the comments that you made earlier ryen around the difference in training style in the inner circle of individuals. Joel's I would take it a step further frank. I would say that building the right team is incredibly important and obviously the foundation. Plus in a business and candidly probably even with will not probably definitely with sports. But then above and beyond that. It's like once you have the team in place. How do you motivate eight? Those people and I think one of the challenges that entrepreneurs have is that they assume that each person wants to be motivated the same way that they do now if the three of us were here in New York City today and we went outside. And we're like all right. Let's Go and find a gym gopher on or whatever we're probably very similar motivation which is we want to be the best out of that group or at least compete with the other individuals. We are in a room on the road. Whatever but that's not the way that everyone is built like there are certain people that shy away a little bit from competition or or who aren't motivated by someone screaming in their face? So I guess my question to both of you frank for you and then also Ryan for you is how do you find that. How do you find the right way to motivate people? What do you look for from a business perspective? Franken then for you Ryan again. When you're coaching people? Is there a different way Wayne which you interact with Klaudia verses the way that you interact with Frankie so why don't we start with you Ryan I would say that yeah. There's a couple of different athletes that I have to work differently with Like with someone like a Frankie Edgar who is an absolute like ah horse he just goes like with with someone. Came to. The biggest issue is actually not overdoing right because you have to. You have to have with with an elite athlete. Like Frankie so you have to know when to pump the brakes and went to not overdo it because Frank is one of those athletes that's so disciplined. And he's such a you know he. He just listened to his coaches doesn't has such trust in like talked about that. Whatever his coaches stay do if it's coach says they're all thousand kicks until you run yourself into the ground you might roll? His is but then he'll do it anyways so with someone like that. You really have to to to watch how you coach them and then on the other hand. If there's there's someone like Like a claudio or or in the case of like a very interesting fighter that I've coached as well as a lamp Palmer he just won the The PF L. dollars tournament ornament. Yeah yeah so I worked with Lance and Atlanta's another fighter. That's the he's very peculiar in the sense out of all the people I've ever worked with when when I show them technique and I say you know does this make sense you most people even if it doesn't make sense they'll sorta now they're really yeah. Sure looks sned in my eyes and goes no does not make sense. I don't get and I was like when I first happened. I was like. Are you mad at me like no I just. I don't get it so then I have to go back and re explain the technique to him in a way that he ultimately gets so the point that I'm making that you know you definitely do have to find a way to motivate different people in different ways but I think in the grand scheme of things if we go back to the team that you surround yourself with your not surrounding yourself with your team. You're surrounding on yourself with yourself in the sense that you are. We won't quote you the conglomeration of the top five people you spend your time with and if you don't if you spend time with you know a bunch of athletes at half ass things you're going to become a half ass athlete. So you need to make the hard decision even if you like this person to spend less time with that person to find someone that motivates you like a UFC newcomer. Sean Brady emotive. He's a psycho. He works out four to five times a day. Probably too much but I draw motivation from that because I always think about one of my doing on this day doing enough. Brady's doing a lot. You know what I mean so I I go back. Can I think about these things. You know Pulse elder rain. Rain Sleet or snow shows up even if he's super hung over after ninety party he comes in and his accuracy rips rips those five five minute rounds on passing. I've seen him in his best shape and in his worship and at the end of the day he still comes in and he rips five five minute rounds on pats. He's always prepared for a world title. Fight a five minute round fight because you always doesn't so it's like spend your time with the people that are successful and I feel like if you do that. It's almost inevitable pretty to become successful. I liked that I liked that frank so going. Yeah Ah gone back to your original question. I learned Reaching the the players who they're all sort of different and the way I was brought up when a dad is New York City cop he was he was great dad. Unbelievable opportunity gave us how hard he worked but he raised my brother. I exactly the same way my personal was yelled at me. I was GONNA prove you wrong rows GonNa say you know watch this and my brother would sort of shut down and he ended up playing other sports parts in. It wasn't for him being weak on my dad being mean or me being psychotic people were different and then I kind of looked at that early on career working with so many different players and then when I was coaching the youth sports I realized that it was the same thing. You have eighteen kids on Football Lacrosse team at your coaching. And you you have to one kid again you yell at him. He shuts down the other kid. Yell at you motivate the other kid doesn't WanNa play you have to coax him those those Emotional Channel Cooler high emotional quotient and understanding with people. Are It matters. I have two players that I work with who are very wealthy. Probably both walking into the hall of fame. They they have the the they're married the same amount of time. They make the same amount of money the portfolios they have or Russia the same. I have to have two completely different conversations. It's about the same thing with each one of them and it's hard to do because you have to be on the on your tillerson understand understand your audience a little bit but understanding that everyone Assesses information differently and how you reach how how you reach those people. That's what allows you to get the most you know again again. I'm not doing a Ryan's doing but how you get the most out of them or how you provide the most information we give them the most opportunity to see the right choices to make. I think that was the first part of your question. The the The the other thing that I think is is interesting testing between the athlete and in my world financial planning or anything is these guys should gold ribbon so some financial advisor would be very technical on the financial title side. I I just WANNA make. I don't make it sort of fun for them in a way right. So they're so goal oriented in use to temporaries in use to meeting certain objectives and in metrics that I just give them goals. I said you've got to save this much and I've found over the years when they don't save they're like Oh my God I failed. I didn't reach that goal. I didn't do as many push chops are I didn't take as many three pointers as I wanted. I had a client. WHO's spending too much money and I told them if you keep your credit card bill under X. amount won't I'll give you an extra twenty thousand dollars to spend this year? I mean I wasn't giving my money. I was giving him his own money. This player was actually texting me saying how am I doing. How's is my credit card spending? I WANNA I WANNA I wanNA show you do it. It's kind of interesting how they're wired. Yeah those are all really good points guys. I want to thank both of you very much for for joining me today. I I found this to be Super Fun and I really appreciate both of you. Thanks everybody appreciate it. Thank you thank you very much for listening to the powering independence.
