The Game Before: One City's Soccer Obsession and Its COVID Crisis
"Same. Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks so much for having me baba so last year in february around this time the american sports world we were watching the coronavirus from afar and in march as we know the nba cancelled all their games and most of the other sports followed suit at that point too but around that time that same time the story emerged out of italy where corona virus cases and deaths were extremely high and the headlines. There they called this one soccer match in particular game zero and it was linked to a very severe covert outbreak and a year later sam. Frankly wanted to know if that was true. So we called you and you started digging and digging and you found an answer but also what feels like a much more interesting story. Yeah that's right. Pablo in the end. It's really a story about a team and the city that loves it so i want to start with that team oughta lot. Tell me about them. Okay so as you listen to this story. Pablo there's two important things to keep in mind about atalanta. The first is that this is a team deeply deeply ingrained in its city bergamo italy. The club is founded by a group of students in one thousand nine hundred seventy. Choose to name it. After the lava a heroin from greek mythology so for more than a century ought alana's been part of bergamo's fabric And you know what it reminds me of. Have you ever met someone from green bay and heard them talk about the packers. That sort of attachment. Like if you give birth to a baby and burgum. Oh the team they send you this tiny jersey and two bottles the formula. Imagine pablo the piazza in bergamo and strollers going this way. And that and every baby there is wearing a blue and black atalanta jersey atlanta's bad and batting atlanta but is no difference. That's a guy. I talked to you for this story. He's great his name's fabio piano. He lives in new york now but he grew up about a two minute. Walk from atalanta's stadium and says if you're from bergamo. Pablo it is your birthright to cheer for atalanta fabio's in his late forties now and when i asked him about memories of atalanta games he had a very very deep. Catalog probably was a nineteen eighty-two and atalanta a similan in bergamo remember that incredible crowd of people from land milan's the nearest big city. So bergamo was always in its shadow and was also incredible score because the match finished two. And you know it was my. How can you say the first time with me from motown facing against a big name big city vividly recalls the game would think about this a game from forty years ago. It's a tie not even a win. Just tying milan team to to to to lifelong memory for of fan.
Covid-19: Millions wake up to tighter coronavirus restrictions
"Flying to the us from the uk will be required to have proof of a negative covid nineteen test within three days of their flight. More than fifty countries have barred traveled from the uk or have put restrictions in place as britain's sees many cases of that new variant of the coronavirus. We want to check in on italy. Which was the first european countries to be hit. Hard by the coronavirus back in the winter and spring remember those unthinkable images in the sophisticated country of overwhelmed hospitals a nationwide lockdown in place between march and may people speaking and singing to each other from balconies on wednesday italy became the first european country to exceed seventy thousand deaths from covid nineteen just as italians were preparing for their traditional celebrations of christmas. The bbc's mark lowen has been covering the pandemic all year and joins us from rome by skype. My my mark. Sixty million or so population in italy seventy thousand deaths more than two million infections. How would you characterize the pandemic right now. I would say robin Is in still in a very devastating second wave which has torn through the country on the difference between the first wave and the second one is that in the first wave. You might remember that the it was really very focused on the north of it to the on the much wealthier regions in the north and like somebody around milan which were very badly hit but they did but it did not spread down to the poor south of the country massively as we go to that time because the if the hospitals couldn't cope in the north will then me in the south they went to naples coke but this time it has hit the south as well. It's the whole country Luckily over the summer where there was a bit of a lull in the virus hospitals actually increase their intensive care facilities and ah capacities so they have been able to cope better this year. With a second wave. They have not been completely filled but That they have been in a very very bad steady. The second way and As you say debts now. I've assembly thousand cases over two million and really all this country can hope for is a christmas gift is respite of in in twenty twenty one. Well we'll what form would that take. Is it the vaccine or people being vaccinated their. The vaccinations are going to start on the twenty seventh samba long ago the eu countries and The first in line will be healthcare workers on the front line. Those over the age as it is. I'm sure Where you are as well and And yeah that just absolutely desperate and craving this maxine because not only has the as the actual at the impact on on have human health so devastating but on the economy. I mean Back before the second wave really got very bad They were ready for costing any contraction this year ten percent. And now i think it'll probably be even even worse They got to impose tighter restrictions over the christmas period closing bars and restaurants and cafes the much of much of the christmas period and shops as well so the economic fallout and of course the social impact is going on the social repercussions going to be felt for many years and just briefly what happened. Is that the same as elsewhere here in the states people. Maybe just traveled more or carried it from one place to another. We remember in the beginning in italy outbreaks were traced to people going skiing alpine countries where they could trace it right down to the ski house and then bringing it back and now we understand. There was talk of closing borders between italy and france and countries where there are ski areas or testing people. Are you know what is the sense of what happened to bring a second surge. I think that there was a level of complacency over the summer when cases were just about a hundred or seven day As opposed to the twenty twenty five thirty thousand. A day that we've been seeing in the last few weeks So people rested on laurels. It's a flood open. Its doors to tourists over the summertime salvage the tourism season which makes up a tourism makes about that. He presented the italian economy and that lead to infections. Young people going abroad and bringing it back. People kind of congregating out in the piazza's were quite busy. So yes i think that. A pretty relaxed summa and a long way is being the last country in europe to restart. Schools led to two pretty horrific autumn.
What is the risk of allergic reaction to COVID-19 vaccines?
"See those they respect getting the shots, the thought is they'll be willing to get one too. And when we reach about 70% immunity meeting 70% of us have either had Cove it or have had the colored vaccine. We can finally put away the masks and hug once again. One of those respected people who got a shop this week is Dr Kevin Slavin, a pediatric infectious disease specialist who's also director of Quality for Hackensack, Meridian Children's Health in New Jersey. ABC News producer Joy Piazza. Rupert spoke to him right after he received his vaccination. What was that process like? It actually was remarkably smooth. We have because of the limited early distribution. We've identified highest risk. Health care workers. Should be in in what we're calling Phase one and they set up this incredible process where They can administer enough vaccines in a very brief amount of time in a single location. With everybody keeping their distance. Everybody masking. And even with the period of observation that's needed afterwards to make sure that they're no immediate side effects. The The whole process from walking in the door. Registering, making sure that I didn't have any of the screening conditions that would. That would be a reason not to get the vaccine at that point. Getting the vaccine and being observed for 15 minutes. That whole process took about half an hour. Every step work exactly the way it was supposed to. I didn't wanna sort of ask how you feel right now. Do you have any sort of underlying Grogginess or fatigue or pain at the injection site. Anything like that. So yesterday my arm was a little sore. So you know I could I could I could use it. It wasn't a big deal, but it was A little bit different from what I get with most most vaccinations, but that was it. There were these couple of instances of allergic reactions in the UK, and then there were two in Alaska. Is it something that folks should worry about? If they have allergic reactions to medicine or or food or anything like that? Should they talked their doctor the way that It looks like it has come up is for people who have had serious allergic reactions before and it's certainly not everybody who's had a serious allergic reaction before. But people who've had serious allergic reactions before mostly focusing on an awful axis, which is, you know the most severe form where there could be severe swelling and your difficulty breathing. And swelling of the throat swelling of the tongue swelling of the lips, all of which presents somebody from being able to really breathe effectively. I think for people who had to severe allergic reactions that that would be something to very seriously discuss with their physician, Bilton observation time immediately afterwards where your observed in a setting We're a health care provider can administer immediate treatment. If you have that that is actually really key for anybody who wants to get the vaccine but has a zit concern that if they speak with their physician, and it felt that it's safe, making sure that it is given in a place that can provide immediate rescue treatment for a severe allergic reaction, and then get somebody quickly to a place where they can provide ongoing treatment goes, that's gonna be the real key component for that. That's ABC News.

The way they do in the piazza's of italy francis journal thank you. It's nice to be here. you must know that. What is the phrase Adult chief arne and say yes we do. Nothing sweep to do nothing and it's really sweet to do nothing. Piazza what is it about that. So fundamental to the the reason so many of us travelers just love italy heart of the town. It's where everyone comes together. You go there to shop to do your business to meet a friend for coffee but you're also going to run into the plumber you haven't been able to reach or The dentist she wanted to make an appointment with. It's it's one reason. The internet hasn't gotten so crazy in italy. As has here because you don't need to be online you're going to see everybody in the piazza that morning and i think that the big sense of community comes directly from that. It's it's the living room of town it's like the town is the big palace and they're the piazza is living room. It is delivered. But of course it's The weather lends itself to piazza. Living people love to be out in the streets and in italy. People like the action. I always think when i go to hotel. I want it quiet. I'll go up a few flights of stairs. No one l. sacrifice the view to be in the backside where it's quiet at night but italian travelers. They ask for the noisy room on the front because they want to be near the action. That's probably true hoteliers. Tell me that. I always say i want a quiet room in the back in the go. That's easy because all the italian travelers the noisy room on the front. So you've spent thirty years in italy sitting piazza's having your cup pacino. What are some little France as the tips on on getting the most out of your piazza experience wherever you may be hanging out. I love the piazza life.

My novel women in sunlight. I go in town every morning. Have coffee and often see women sitting around the piazza writing in a notebook or sketching or coming up on their bikes. And i know those women are travelers there on a quest. They're looking for something and It was kind of imagining what they were looking for. That led me to write that novel. And i know who they are So the piazza for me is a place to really observe people and to participate in the comedy of life. The peculiar looking people the gorgeous people the whatever interesting thing that i spot usually goes down in my notebook and and a lot of people A lot of writers feel that way. You know cafes in paris wherever but there's just some things so today about piazza life that ally taking part in it. We opened this discussion. Where you're just saying you know you don't need the internet everybody's right there in the piazza it is so true. It's hard to imagine that if you grow up in america behind the wheel of a car all the time but in italy that's where people just gravitate and you've got the core of the city. Historically you've got church you've got the city hall you've got the hospital you've got the belltower has everything you need. And you've got all the time in the world you've loved the sound of your particular belltower and drenched in sun. You've got beautiful little restaurant. You know the restaurant to you. Know the bar east in the cafe. It's just really lends itself to the ill. Dorchi fernandez the. What is it the sweetness of doing nothing. Yes it does. It also keeps you in touch with a lot of people in a very direct way because you going in the wine store. You're going in the fruit kadurah. You're going in the little grocery store. You are shopping at very different places in the course of the morning We have a little outdoor market in our town once a week and we also have a big market on another day so that takes place around the piazza that's where life is lived people. Go to piazza. And i think it's just such a healthy way to live because you get isolated man. There's not the hierarchy of age.

But what's the purpose. Why do you. Brits willingly tax money to have kings and queens and princes printing around your country. I know that's a question that we always get asked his guides when we're doing our tours and yet one of the questions i always ask for members is put your hands up if you came on this tour just because we have a royal family. No one ever does that. We've got so much more to offer but the royal family are a big attraction for us as well because immediately. I'm sure if we just said prince charles prince william prince harry. Everyone has a visual of who they are because of the world media but for us as british citizens. It's a lot more than that. We're very personal about them.

Of course we've got queen elizabeth. She's getting old but she seems to be Still the metal name is did you of edinburgh also known as prince philip prince philip in their children so the eldest is prince charles who will be on next monarch followed by his sister. Princess own followed by his brother prince andrew. I'm also also a further brother. Who is prince edward. So all of these people are healthy and still in public Very match very much in the next generation. There's probably a lot of nieces and nephews. There is many nieces. And as we're speaking at the moment we've got three kings and one queen in waiting to go on the throne. What does that mean well. Basically what it means the next person in line for the throne when the queen dies will be prince. Charles right that will then be followed. By prince william his eldest son then prince william's eldest son prince george. Okay then we have his prince william's daughter princess charlotte. So i said that makes sense when the eldest son know if charles had an older daughter would she be next in line or is it still the old fashioned. Still be william. But when william and kate. Kate middleton who is william's wife when they were expecting prince george the eldest son. The law was changed if owner.

If you're wrong on somebody whose hands probably smell like Plato. It's the easiest Tom. Funniest And most embarrassing game show ever. Greater are you smarter than a fifth grader listen on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts? I want to talk a little bit more about fears because in fears. GimMe some of your standout interviews I'm fascinated by fierce. So fiercest so good fears, fiercest eight episodes but each one of them is like a mini TV show we hired actresses to do the characters of all of these historical women and we had casting calls it was it was very professional tribeca film festival good job with their stuff they know what the? and so we started out with the Chinese pirate. Chang. Isao, who is the greatest pirate who's ever lived I mean seriously the most successful pirate she was the most successful in terms of making money in terms of protecting her people in terms of beating the Chinese government terms of beating any government around the world and no one has ever heard her name. We hear blackbeard all the time we hear Captain Jack Right we never hear about Sheni Sow who was legitimately the most successful pirate in the world. So she's An an entire episode of fierce and we soundscape it with like battle scenes and like guns and it's just it's cool and exciting and so much fun. But how does one know which is the most successful pirates they're like Forbes or fortune I mean, how do you having I think that you measured by booty? She must have had some booty. Okay and is there like a recording of of booty somewhere be nice she also she also had the most ships. So she had the most pirate ships under her control like. Vegas Portuguese navy at the time, and it's because here's the thing. So she's a girl right? Former prostitute former prostitute whose a pirate and it's like I want control got your higher it fleet right? But so her things cooperation. So she got all of these pirate groups to cooperate with each other and become a giant pile or a union of pay. Exactly. Wow. But the coolest thing about her again severi female trait. She doesn't for about ten years and she's like I made a lot of booty and I'm going to retire and negotiate with the Chinese government to get them to give money to all of my men essentially like she made them civil service employees for the rest of their lives got them retirement funds and retired and lived out the rest of her life as a rich lady. I love that I love that I love that there's the community, the union, and then I loved it, there's the succession retirement plan because I will say it in my field and family law. There are so many really old male family law attorneys like in their nineties and you're. Going to do this rest of my life. No, I say to some of the associates at my firm. Do it. If I'm still here on I'm seventy remind me of this conversation there's just no way at a certain point you have to kind of gracefully exit while you can still remember the names of your clients in my opinion. Your children, right it's like Oh Kanye. Enjoying my life or your fellow pirates. That's exactly when is when does fierce launch? So fierce is out right now but what is okay we have all eight episodes of fierce are available now on apple podcasts, the iheartradio APP spotify wherever you get your podcast and they're really fun because each of them is a little is an hour long and they're totally binge -able and there's only eight. So it's it's like it's like a good long road trip besides now machiavelli pronounce her name the the. Chinese sow guy who gives us a few of the other ones I mean we probably won't have heard of them but I wanted to kind of be in our consciousness as we begin to binge listen. So you've got Jeannette Rankin Jeanette was the first woman elected to Congress in the United States of America and again also like someone shouldn't we know that name? Should we know? Yes. Yes and we don't we just we just don't. Well now we do. We. What year was that? What year was Janette I mean world. But rain. Was it in the forties or fifties? It was right before World War One. Okay here's and here's the other thing she was elected twice. And Chad asks fest because she was a so she was like as a woman I don't feel like we should be voting for war she votes against World War. One. Then she gets elected again votes against World War, two and then when the Vietnam War rolls around she marches against it in. Washington with a bunch of like young hippies in Gogo boots and Gina and no bras just love. And like just at margin. So also, on fierce, we have Dorothy ours ner who was one of the most prolific Hollywood directors of all time who you've also probably never heard her name she was a female director in a man's world and we have grace hopper who created the first calm the really the first computing language, the first language that allowed human beings to talk to computers right around world, War Two. Again, we talk about these tech geniuses all the time, but we've never heard name grace hopper and Christine Jorgensen. Was A transgender pioneer in America one of the first Americans to undergo surgery publicly and really changed the way that we talked about in the language that we used when it came to transgendered people in the United States and then we also have madame CJ Walker and she's a woman who was born to freed slaves and turned herself into one of the first female self made millionaires in the country which she does hair care hair care. Care and she she had amazing hair products and she was just she created the Avon Lady business model before the Avon lady existed. Amazing. Okay. So folks listening fierce at. You can get it on apple podcast. You can. It's on Iheart also committed, and now tell us about your new one joe about prolific. Would you do? All of. This is actually an exclusive I haven't talked about this in public yet. So I wanted to do a podcast look it's called under the influence and it's looking at the industry of mom influencers on social media. The good the bad. The ugly how it all works. It's the influencing industry is something like ten billion dollar industry now, and no one talks about the economics of it. No one talks about how it both empowers women and makes women feel like complete shit and so for eight episodes were doing deep dive really digging into the economics anthropology the sociology, how influencing industry works and what it looks like when we're. In a world where we're being sold to mothers as women constantly and a constant scroll I love it, and when is that launching? So dot will launch in the fall we wanted to be able to get out to do a lot of the reporting. We've done a lot of the reporting during quarantine during Tova and I had this idea because I was up at four in the morning breastfeeding my second baby rights scrolling through Instagram 'cause you've got one baby on the BOOB and your phone in your hand and all of a sudden I'm like I'm buying all of this weird shit and I'm like, why who, I?

Crazy. But the fact is I just like stories and I like good stories and I'm like when I hear something interesting I want to find a way to tell that. Story to as many people as possible in the world but the religious studies won the masters in religious studies trips people up. But it was because I was a celebrity journalist back in two thousand seven, which was a crazy God damn year. Yes. You know I was a celebrity journalist for the New York Daily News I was out in La you know Britney Spears having her breakdown. She's going after people with umbrella shaving her head and I was like I just WanNa studied Jesus. and. So I did and so I spent the next year getting a Master's in religious study and just kind of cleansed my palate of everything that had happened the year before and it was really nice. Well, let's talk about if nuns ruled the world ten sisters on mission I mean that's the good feet and because that fascinates me tell this is this is your nonfiction novel. Yes. Yes. So actually, if nuns ruled the world it came out my thesis For My masters Nyu I started interviewing a bunch of nuns about how they use twitter, how they were using social media, and at the time nuns were doing all kinds of things on twitter. They would prayed the rosary for you. There are a couple of nuns that were tweeting baseball games. There was one man who was a huge Pittsburgh pirates fan. It was called nuns on the bus they were travelling the country and it wasn't a called nuns on the run. It. Called nuns run trying to be original. Right. And it was. Just like bad ass women and one nun led to another none as that happens, I wanted I originally wanted to call I feel like every good book starts with a good title and I really wanted to call it bad habit. That we all love unpunished and the nuns didn't love that but then I found ten really interesting feminists sisters who were changing their little corner of the world and no one had told their stories no one. No one pays attention to nuns because it's like they're not women are not men there as sexual. It's like they could go run colleges and run hospitals and it's like what? WHO's it's a woman doing that I'm not done. This matter. So I had nuns that we're fighting for abortion. I had nuns that we're fighting for anti. Nuclear proliferation. Fighting for the era and they are incredible and we became really close and four of them were at my wedding for of the ten and two of them gave a blessing at my wedding and we're still on a text chain I remember when I met my husband I sent the nuns a picture of him. They're like he's hot and I'm like God if. We could go move this thing forward. Lake you.

Romantic Bridges and Little Museums of Paris; Burgundy
"Of the small specialty museums in Paris were allowed to reopen weeks before the Lou, but just because they don't attract the big crowds of the famous museums doesn't mean they aren't worth your time in just a bit. We'll hear why they can be worth. Including in your travel plans next time you're in town and we'll explore what you'll find in the peaceful countryside of Burgundy and easy giant from Paris. Let's start. Today's very French edition of travel with Rick Steves along the banks of the Seine, the busy river that winds through the heart of the city. Paris to me, it's the capital of Europe and you can never get tired of ten. I just love the way the THEMM lined through. The city in the city faces. It's river and I also love the way it's laced together by bridges that just give so much meaning to your wondering through Paris. Lynch Lima is a journalist for the New York Times. She's written books about Paris to her. New Book is called. The river that made Paris, and she talks about the bridges that lease together the right bank and left bank. In Paris Elaine. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me on your show I. Love The way your book. The Seine the river that made Paris illustrates the importance. To France end to Paris and of course, Paris was born on this end, wasn't it? Yes, there would not have been a Paris. Had it not been for the Senate and for the heels lessee tae the island that is the center, the heart of the city of Paris, and that goes back to Roman Times. Pre Roman Times Poetry Roman times absolutely now when we think about the send through the centuries through most of the centuries, it's been a mucky riverbank where. Where you've got all sorts of slime and sewer and garbage and poverty, and and then over the centuries built this wonderful embankment that sort of teams the river, and and makes it an elegant part of the city. Talk a bit about the embankment in Paris will the embankment of Paris really the way it looks like now was conceived in the nineteenth century at before that you could pretty much walk along the banks of the Seine and bring your cows and horses. Horses and dogs right into the river, your laundry, whatever now it's a little bit more challenging, although there are places right now in Paris that you can walk down into the river and go swimming if you're so inclined, but with this mighty embankment you also have elegant bridges, lacing it together to the right and the left bank, and one of my favorite things in Paris just to walk along the banks of the river, and in or cruise the river and enjoy the. The bridges I've got so many vivid memories of just being on the top of one of those river, Seine, tourist boats, and going under these glorious bridges, and the more you know about the context of these bridges, the more funded is to sail under them. Let's just go and there's four bridges that really come to mind from. Yes, I'd love to just talk about each of them as if we're cruising down the river and I. we come to the punt new. Means the Newbridge, right? It means the new bridge, even though it's the oldest bridge in Paris. And when it was built, it was finished in the beginning of the seventeenth century, it was a miracle was an architectural dazzling creation, because it was the first bridge that didn't have houses on either side, so that people would come to the pontiff and look at the expanse of the river. It became the heart and soul of Paris where. You would come and have all sorts of wild activities. You could join up for the army or by. Orange juice or have a tooth pulled or watch jugglers or exchange God. You could buy false teeth and glass is and wooden legs and life, poultry and skin whiteners, so it really was the place to be was a gathering place a Piazza for the city. It was. You know what that's exactly right? It's like a piazza in the shape of a bridge. Now when you said it had didn't have houses on either side. Are you talking like lined with houses and shops like the punt Vecchio in Florence and the London Bridge in. Exactly and that you finally had an open view to the river, and you didn't have these barriers in the shape of houses blocking your. Visual joy of Helseth Martavis city that has some pride because it's just a practical matter. If you had a bridge that you needed help, pay for and maintain. You'd rent out space to it and it would obliterate the fact that it feels like a bridge so London Bridge and the Punt Vecchio it would be lined by shops that were paying rent to the city, so they could have that great bridge. Bridge punt new F-. It's a piazza. That's great. The next bridge we come to is the punt art that right the what what does that mean, and how is it unique well? It's the bridge of the arts and I love this bridge. Because it joy. It's a walking bridge. It's a pedestrian bridge, and so it's a great bridge for picnicking, but if you stand front of this bridge at the Louvre. And look through a gorgeous courtyard, but not many people know about is called the core cafe, the square courtyard you can look through the arch, and you can see right across the bridge to the St to default on the other side of the river, which is where the economy foss says is head. You just feel like you've got this magical long view of Paris

"That'd be better especially when you have the complement of running backs. I think the rams will have without. I have fifty percent early. We're just having call. You have to change your name to something with an Algorithm Larry. We're not. We're not doing doing this. I I agree to some say. Oh well defensively. I would've loved for them to grab a middle linebacker definitely Greg. I thought that will be something that they would do. But you're teams are GonNa wait 'til after today so after today you can now sign free agents and it won't go against you in terms of your compensatory picked. Right because the Rams Lawson you know Don Dante Fowler in free agency so they'll probably get a pig back so today when you sign players after four PM Eastern one PM Pacific then. They won't count against the compensatory. Pick things so you can go out and get a veteran guy that can fit in. There's will so we're we're worried about the draft and I keep telling people George Greg telling people. I'm just not so sure how. This season rookies will have a substantial impact on teams right. No offseason program with no off season work. Ota's minicamps you're going to have a bunch of young players coming in trying to learn the offense or defense literally in a matter of weeks. I think this is going to be the year of the veterans. And if you don't believe me a look yesterday at what the New Orleans Saints did in picking up Jameis Winston to backup a drew brees. You're starting to see that teams realize that even the forty niners kidding. Trent Williams trae. They're getting young. I mean older veteran players who can help you right away instead of maybe somebody's younger players to make an impact. Let's go to the phones before I move onto the raiders. I want to get your thoughts on the raiders team. You played for John. Inventory wants to back Greg Up. He wants to give Greg A wwl. Go ahead John. Yeah all the reason why I want to do. That is because of coach for a number of years and when it comes to your graphics. I think they're going to get your best players in your top ten after that pretty much. Everybody bounces out. So when you're picking after that you WANNA fill spots you feel you need and then you're looking for the guys that are eligible people that you can't teach be better. I mean best example. Tom Brady wind up being the best one of climbing John John. That's a terrible example. The six round quarterbacks become the greatest of all time that's only happened once in the history of the sport if it was that easy tease to do it all the time I give you that but you want to feel your knee. Okay that we'll we'll we'll address. Let's address that okay. John we'll address. I don't agree with that. But thank you for the call. What was the what was the major need if we all before Thursday started or for the rams case before Friday started if we said the ramp. What is the rams biggest need? If you only had one pick in his draft you could draft one player. What with the rams draft running back that would have been running back. Okay got right away so after that you just Kinda go with the best player on your board. Sometimes you upgrade other positions. You don't have to always draft knee. That's what gets people in trouble. We got to draft a neat. Well what if there's a player on our board? Who's actually than another player in a certain area and we can upgrade at that position. I'll probably do that instead. Yeah I agree with you. I go best player available. I figure out the talent situation first and then find a place to put the Laura you wanted to weigh in on John. Ventura trying to back Greg Up. Yeah he was horrible. I was like damn. He didn't help you out at Greg Shining at your bag. It didn't work out so well. I wished today that I had that I was at the studio and I had access to the soundboard. I KISS UP KISS UP. Sounds because that's all Laura does if it's whatever. Oh George absolutely big kissing up sounds when I get back to the studio. I'm going to destroy Laura with this being. Wait till he's over to. I've got in your back. Remember the one time you assured she had you on the sweatpants out there. What Kirk before. We move onto the raiders. Are you okay wearing sweatpants to the grocery store yeah? I'll do it all the time. Thank you thank you thank you know. They're not interested in that with this heat wave though now no not now but a couple of weeks ago at the beginning of quarantine. Sweatpants Kirk. Yeah no no no. No no not during quarantine. This is all a tree corn. Anytime wouldn't go to the grocery store. Thank you thank you very much. So anyway The raiders what did you make of their draft why I thought the first round pick the first one twelve thought. That was a great pick. I didn't believe that Henry Rugs was going to be available for them at twelve. I had him going to the jets With you know for Sam Darnold but they went with Beck and they pick the tackle to help out their young quarterback with rugs available. I said this is who JON GRUDEN WANNA. And this is a a raiders. Pick right a four to seven. Forty one of the fast guys in this draft. Yes that was the great pick for them now. The only now the other pick pick nineteen. That's the one I scratch my head a little bit on Damodar Net. He'll be twenty four when the season starts you talked about Van Jefferson being a little older receiver. Arnett is going to be an older defensive back and I got a little heat about this on twitter this weekend older people but this is just. Kinda my opinion George but is sometimes feast or famine right. It's risk versus the war when you draft Ohio state cornerback. Because when I look at all apple right remember he Li- Apple. You could win Gary and Conley will die who was drafted high. Who's already on his second team in a short span? Not all how state cornerbacks are going to be Denzel Ward or even Marshon Lattimore. Right you know they can also be the other to like. We mentioned he. Li- APP or Gary in Cali. Are these defensive Bax benefeciaries of who the boasts the chase. Young's of the world right by those defensive. Lineman have helped out those quarterbacks. So that's why it's always for me just a little buyer. Beware on that but outside of that. I thought the raiders had outstanding draft. They've got their some of their needs. definitely met and I guess they have this pipeline between Clemson University in the raiders so now five players in the last two years from Clemson drafted by Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden. They love them. Some clemson Cleveland fail. Man You WanNa go you WanNa what is it. What was it that he said? He goes to a program to program when coaches all video. Yeah but the raiders had a good draft. Though they did they stuck to what they had to. And like I said the rugs pick is just outstanding. They needed somebody who can stretch the field we knew about last year. The Antonio Brown thing didn't work. Yeah so rooks comes in Hungary's ready to roll. He'll give them. I think that top top end speed. The raiders went out and got another piglet. Lynn Bowden junior running back quarterback wide receiver man. He's going to be a gadget. Guy For the raiders. So it's interesting. Draft for the raiders. Because they got a lot of talent and I think it's only only help them this season. I we're up against a Gimme a letter. Grade of Kirk Morrison's teaching skills right now at the Morrison School of Higher Education. Just a letter wall right. Now I'm on about A. B. Okay Fair working on my patience right right well thank you so much for stopping by. Kirk always appreciated. It sounds good always a pleasure. Thanks TO KURT. Thanks to me. Thanks to Lauren. Greg and you guys tuning in calling him. We love you. We'll talk to you tomorrow at ten..

"George specifics specifics. The specifics like you're trying to ask me to write all right specific words that I like that we've rattled you like we've told rattled you today. It doesn't take much. That piazza in his book. Said that Vince. Gully was crushing him. Because Vince said Hey I when he was trying to get his contract done with the dodgers he put on February fifteenth deadline and Vin. Scully was telling them like. Hey what are you doing with his self imposed deadline? And what are you GONNA do? And the way that he put in the book was the way the whole contract drama looked to them. Many of whom were taking their view from. Scully was that by setting a deadline insisting on so much money. I was demonstrating conspicuous. Lack of loyalty to the ballclub. Vince Gully was crushing me. Why how bad you say anything bad about. Vin was taken him out by the news. No he was just saying what? Are You doing why you go? What is going on with your look. I love Vince. Gully and do we know he's okay now from the fall like what was it. Seemed like he was okay. Right good yes and I know we all love Vin scully. But look there's a rule right. They'll be talking about another man's money man. You know what I'm saying. He was loyal to the ball club. Used my Kbia was not and if I remember correctly they offered him like a one hundred million dollar contract when one hundred million dollars was a gigantic amount of money listens to Liz. I know Vin scully. Just like the next guy. Okay he was the soundtrack to baseball as I was growing up. He was calling the world series. When I was a kid. Okay I was. I didn't live here but I knew I listened to him every year. Call the world series when he was doing it. So here's the thing and I'm gonNA open up the phones right now. Eight seven seven seven ten. Espn as much as you love in. Scully is it still not cool to be talking about another man's money. There's nothing that Vince. Gully can say Moro. I know you love Vin scully. I know you're a dodger fan. I it is it okay to talk about another person's money like that now. My money's my money in your mouth. I love in but I got hot. Take Shiloh George. I Love Van. But you can't be talking about other people's money man like you know what? I'm saying he wasn't saying like oh. You don't deserve this amount of money or that you all you're saying is hey. What are you doing with this ultimatum and February fifteenth deadline? It was nothing to do with the money. It's still it's still about money. It's about the contract wasn't it was about the contract saying are you loyal to the dodgers or worried about your money. Let's go to Gelato drew to help. Settle this go ahead. July drew drew Bergman here those fighting words or fighting Atkins when you were in about another man's money his bread his Lupu. Yeah yeah had chicken as Marshawn Lynch you know and I love but no you do not do that to another man. At all the time there was no social media. Then so people were like Piazza's right. They were getting most of their input from Vince. So Bergman dead wrong but he can use ramp to can you tell. Can you tell Bergman? He's taking now. He told Berkman King of that statement. That's a good drop right. They're eligible run back later. Bergman by Gillette or droop today just not my day or week or whatever you WANNA call it at this point. I'm not. I'm not going against Vince Gully. I don't care what any saying you have to go against him. I mean the man is a saint but it doesn't mean that everybody is infallible. Like occasionally you can do something that like. You're like okay. I don't agree with it. let's go to Ted and Fullerton. Ted How are you doing all right? Yeah I don't think it's bad for visual artists as on my talk about it. Yeah what's he doing? He's been laws team to the team. I get it but would you be cool if someone at your job. Blake was talking about your finances. I don't think that's cool. Well those under contract baby. I'm not under a contract. You know already okay. But what if what if what if you are the best employees at your job which he was at that time and someone who ate? Your boss is telling you a man. Why do you want to raise? We should all get raises. Then and you and your response can be one producing more than everyone right like. Why are you? That's not a cool conversation to have look at it that way but it was like that though. I mean he was asking him why he had a deadline on on his contract. I would have given on your contract Mica because sometimes you got to play hard ball with the man. You can't let the man keep you down. That's what they said in a movie. House.
About Antonio Vivaldi
"Antonio that's Italian for Anthony. Vivaldi was born in Venice in sixteen. Seventy eight then as the city with all the canals wasn't a part of Italy then it was an independent republic. Some records say that nobody was the oldest of six children but some say his family had as many as nine kids. Vivaldi's father was a barber who also worked as a baker and as a violinist. Vivaldi learned to play the violin from his father. We've all got something else from his father. Flaming red hair back then when a family had a lot of kids and not much money at least one boy usually became a priest. So that's what Vivaldi did. And because of his hair they called him the red priests somewhere along the line. We've all probably studied with musicians. Who worked at Saint Mark's Cathedral in Venice after awhile possibly because he had asthma? Vivaldi gave up the priestly. Duty of saying mass. Since Vivaldi couldn't do what priests normally did he started teaching music at the UH spit. La Della Pieta from the US Ballet de la. Piazza was not a hospital. It was an orphanage that was originally connected with a hospital. So that's where the name Auspey Dali came from. All the residents of the orphanage were female so volley taught and led an all girl orchestra bar people all over Europe heard about what great musicians Valdis students were. No one visited Venice without going to hear them perform their concerts. Where a huge tourist attraction? One of the most intriguing things about those concerts was that you couldn't see the musicians. Because they were hidden when they performed the audience just heard heavenly music coming from behind a fancy metal screen. Make It only guess what the girls looked like? Yvonne de worked at the speedometer. Della Pieta off and on mostly on for almost forty years composing religious music for his students to sing and hundreds of concertos for them to play. He wrote concertos all kinds of instruments but soon trumpets even mandolins at the same time. The valley had another musical career going writing operas. The valley is even more famous now than he was in his lifetime but his music was only rediscovered in the last fifty years or so. Today it's hard to turn on the television without hearing Vivaldi's music in some commercial or other especially the concertos spring from a set of violin concertos called the four seasons
So We’re Working From Home. Can the Internet Handle It?
"And with millions of people now working now taking online classes and sheltering in place at home the next few weeks could put quite a strain on internet service the big question it can the infrastructure handle it for a closer look Stan Bunger and sizzling Taylor spoke with John piazza professor of Kerr at Carnegie Mellon University and former chief technologist with the Federal Communications Commission can our infrastructure handle it that's the big question well the simple answer is we don't really know nothing like this has happened before luckily I I think most of the usage will occur during the day when it's not peak hour there is excess capacity so if we're lucky we won't exceed that capacity but we might especially in places like the bay area will just have to wait and find out until now the assumption had been that you know drive time as it were for the internet was the evening when everybody was busy streaming Netflix and Amazon movies is that still the case well that was the case two weeks and that that's why we have excess capacity during the day because they build to meet the the peak our needs we just don't know how much the daytime usage is going to go up if there are problems what would the first signs be or will it just stop no I won't stop you'll just see poor performance yeah for those of us and now I have to teach my classes hotline for those of us who are home working or or doing other things we may find that video for example doesn't work and if you're on a cable system particularly in the upstream is a problem if you are video conferencing the video you're showing is more problematic than the video you're seeing and we might have to go to audio of that half yeah and to be perfectly Frank just to share a story here we may have run into that very problem here KCBS yesterday morning when I tried to set up with a high quality audio codec from my house and it may well have been a limited upstream capacity from my house that brought things to a halt it's very possible so the question of which in the walls of somebody's house we're all on the same wifi network in any family structure other issues there too there could be we particularly actually the your in say an apartment building with ten walls and and and are densely packed you may actually find that the neighboring apartments start interfering with each other in terms of wifi that's also possible do you know if providers are doing anything to ease the situation I I mean they're they're they're changing some some of their their offerings to customers I'm actually trying my research team tried to reach out to some of the I. S. P.'s to to in the hope that they will share data with us particularly in the places that are getting hit first like Seattle and and now the bay area so we can learn and help the rest of the country prepare but if any of them are listening I hope they'll call me the cooperation that was John P. hopp professor at Carnegie Mellon University and former chief technologist with the Federal Communications
Ross and Carrie Meet Isis: Age of Aquarius Edition
"We got a hold of Isis aquarian via phone. She's in Hawaii. We had seen her at the source family reunion dinner but but we didn't talk to her there but she heard our show and she agreed to come on and talk to us and then she did it and it sounded like this high isis. How're you ewing doing Okay well thank you so much for doing this with us. Sure so isis want you tell us about how you got involved in the source family family to begin with I was living in. La Actually engaged to a famous rock and roll photographer. Rondo Shelly loved La. Look everything we were you were you originally from La. I grew up in the air force. My Dad was a military man so we lived in California before. But you know I basically basically lived Oregon California Hawaii okay. A real coastal girl. Oh actually we were living in Florida. My devastation it takes canaveral on. When was this that you are working with your photographer? Slash boyfriend in L. A. Mid Sixties. Okay actually hit meant what Jim Baker when he had three famous restaurants on sunset boulevard breath aware in the world and then the source and he was actually known as Food Goo. Jim Baker was an iconic Hollywood legend. Before he was even bother you owed. Oh Oh okay. That's news to me. In what way his restaurants were all very famous okay. Everybody went to his restaurants. They were shot as a curve. Her and he was you know he was La Player. He was very good looking and he was very inland with no one. BEADY and Steve Allen and it was the in crowd and and he was very well-known. Interesting Steve Allen of our ears so those those two people seem like unlikely. Unlikely friends because Steve Allen was sort of not very into the spiritual side of things. Do you know anything about that friendship while Jim Baker wasn't he didn't it really started his spiritual trip until he sold you old world kind of went on his journey and devise on each other before then. The way I described him Baker's he was the ultimate animal man. He's a man's man that he was lazy. And then now the women loved Kim Piazza Array of friends from Jack Lang to Paul Breaks. So well connected. When did you make the connection with him? Well when I hit lose UCLA. Before I met lawn I had gone to the old world. I was actually introduced to him and his wife. At the time I actually became very good friends with his wife. The store was kind of a whole put on us. Never really kindness connected we did we. Didn't you thought maybe a relationship or something might arise sooner than it did. It was a playboy and then I just Kinda moved onto another crowd and Net ron and then you know we were doing our studio. I haven't seen Jim in in a year or two. I heard that he opened. This restaurant called the source. It was the beginning beginning of this. That you chain restaurant that he opened up and we were looking for models for Jesus Christ superstar Mhm Booster we were doing and I love that I need some Jesus type looking people and I said well. I've heard that my old friend. Jim has him at this restaurant. There's a collection of Jesus wearing roads. I stepped onto the source doors patio. He came out looking like Moses. You know so close he wanted. Jesus and Moses. Yeah so you know is is women following him and beautiful young people at the stores and it was just like something happened I just I clicked. uh-huh never looked back. Did you have to go home and think about it and then return the next day just immediately a member it was immediately. I was Aw something happened. I would if it was if I knew this is what I was there for. I instantly blue that we had made agreements before incriminating and he confirmed that just like my destiny was that was it it was assets. What was the confirmation to just kind of agree with you or did he have some kind of evidence of that now? He looked at me and he said I. I've been waiting for you. It was like a cosmic snick download. And then he's voiced it. Okay yeah so I went back home and I told you on that. I was playing to join the first family way and I thought he would actually come with. Yeah I remember in the documentary. He was saying that that wasn't for him. Come with me. And he thought I was stark raving me now and he let me go thinking that you know in a couple of weeks I would be back but I didn't. That was that that next day you were having having Frist Bruce as a family and the sunflower and Solomon. Yeah that was the proof of Solomon and that to the studio and I got some cameras and I just started documenting. Because that's what I was used to doing. That started my path of being a family. Historian all starring in our guys keep her which is so cool and I think what really makes the source standout from so many other groups that you have so much documentation. How much of that is yours? And how did you kind of make sure that you yourself were included in the in the documentation. Well it was all mine. Basically I started it and then I was just with him all the time following him around and I became like one of the family administrators and Kinda hands the camera off to a Swiss. This brother only and by that time. He likes the whole thing being you know recording and he said this will end up saving the legacy and who has all that now. Does it take a good chunk of your house. How many photos yard? I you know she'll onto the art guys through forty some years of being here Hawaii. They started getting started deteriorating because the climate and just one day I well well you know I gotta figure this out. I gotTa do something and that was about fifteen years ago when I decided I was going to write the book. I never never intended to be the one that wrote the book but I couldn't get anybody else to do it. Some people were families didn't even know they were in the source family. They didn't Walker kids to know about the story. Okay so so how. Many of the former members G. think are still open about how they were in the source family versus what percentage would you say. Just kind of. Don't talk about it. It's buried deep in the past for them. Well since the documentaries a book and all the publicity the city and and we've had a couple of family reunions. I think everybody's pretty open to you. Know some people that that are negative negative to it and realization that we all came to and it was quite a shock to me when I think it was. We didn't all have the same. Mainly -ality is added censure thought through the Lens of our own being our own karmic experience that we had. y'All were on a different different paths with it so if we different people will get different stories everybody else. I'll have the same experience That's a really nuanced onced. Lovely view that you know we all have these different experiences and we might see them you know totally subjectively. I feel like that's A A little contrasting with some of the the ways that was presented in documentary where it felt more like father yoed is the embodiment of God and everyone in the source kind of saw him that way and he really was. What was the word? It was like your your earthly master. Something like that. So how do we do. Yes we you went through those phases through all phases from the beginning of the family we went to so many incarnations experience. The American Indian Chips the Hebrews. He took assuming everything he was on his path. Also listen incredible me but you know yes it got messy at times you know we were all all trying to figure it out including him he had to figure it out too. There was bends in the road. Yes you know. I think we all got a passing grade. We were a mystery school. We were just hippie. We were into the spiritual pursuit and it was new territory for him for all of us. Who is God? He was God to us. It's not uncommon to talk that way not uncommon to talk about being in our God goddess. Okay so what's he got in the same way that I'm God. Yeah Yeah so you know forty years ago that was just like new territory. We we saw each other gods. We saw each other spiritual beings

The Pilgrim Trails of Italy
"Hiking for a week or a month on a historic pilgrimage? Trail in Europe has become a popular Peter way for people from all over the world to rejuvenate themselves. It's gotten so that Spain's popular community. Santiago is even starting to feel a little crowded sometimes times. If you'd prefer a quiet or pilgrim route. Italy may have the answer. Sandy Brown and errands Italia have covered hundreds of miles on the historic walking trails of of Italy. And they WANNA help you give it a try. They've recently helped to found an organization called American pilgrims to Italy. And it's designed to help people like you would meet a plan. Pilgrimage hike in Italy in Sandy has written a detailed guide to tracking the way of Saint Francis from Florence to Assisi and then to Rome there joining us now on travel with Rick. Steves Steph's to recommend trails. That Saint Francis may have himself tracked Erin and thanks for joining us. Thanks for having US happiness. So Europe has these these venerable hikes. That are really long and it has these pilgrimage trails. That really have a a a little bit of a different meaning Aaron. What's the difference between just a long multiday hike in Europe that can be famous and established and a pilgrimage? Well to me pilgrimage signifies. This is a long walk to place of spiritual meaning and so to me. The first one that I ever did was the way of Saint Francis and so oh walking along pads in stopping in towns where he had been in there were stories about him had more of a spiritual context to it than just trekking. The camino goes to the supposed tomb of Saint James Ferried in Santiago de Compostela. Yes that would be the goal. People in the Middle Ages walked from Paris all the way to that northwest corner of Spain with that goal in mind Martin. Luther hiked from way up in Germany all the way to Rome. He was told to hike down there. It was kind of personal. What would you call it Sandy? A personal ordeal or a personal. I think you could say a pilgrimage also committed jar and then when he got to Rome he walked up the steps of this Accra scholar on his knees and had quite an experience. Enrollment was life changing for him so life changing that started the reformation. He did a lot of thinking and he got to Rome. I understand when when he got up to the top of those depths he kind of goes. This is all make sense exactly. It's a time when you think about these things. Isn't it now when we think about Italy. You guys are both specializing in Poke Mitch. Trails in Italy Saint Francis would be the the star of these things Send you wasn't St Francis relate to these pilgrimage trails well the VA Francesco Chess. Go the way of Saint. Francis is a modern connecting of the various different sites from Saint Francis Time and so for instance when he had a big experience the stigma experience at Santiago de la Berna. That's connected then with Google where he spoke with wolf and see see where he was born and had his last days. Okay so this is a modern. Lacing together of these stops people who want to get into whether they want to hike an excuse for hiker to actually get into the the whole life in the teaching of Saint Francis they would do this. Walk the name of your book is tracking the way of Saint Francis Triumph floors to CD-ROM. So that's what that would be. And then we hear about the FRANCI. JANA the via French ejecta is an historic walk. And so it's a little different. From the way of Saint Francis in terms of it was put together in the ancient world or in in the Middle Ages actually because there was a priest by the name of Cyrillic that was elevated to the episcopacy and he was supposed to appear in Rome to receive his Palim. which is the symbol of his office and so he walked with a retinue from Canterbury across France Switzerland down through Italy and arrived in Rome and then instructed his secretary to take notes of the way back and those notes were all contained at the Cathedral and Canterbury where they sat for thousand and years and then thousand years later people said well what is this and they put together the Modern Day via French agenda following that same modern modern day Revisit of this now does that relate to canterbury tales at all. It doesn't away because well. In case of Canterbury Tales they were ending at Canterbury Burri and the case of this. They were starting at Cantor. Okay now would. Saint Francis have actually walked on that trail on the difference. You know although it's very possible possible that he walked portions of it in order to get up to the community Santiago Kaz. He did walk. The community. Santiago did only twelve fourteen but the a piece of the way of Saint Francis that's historic that he was summoned to Rome by Pope innocent the third and he walked from. CCD Rome and ended up at the Saint. John Lateran Church. So that's one of the stops on the way of Saint Francis and it follows roughly his okay if you were so inclined you could leave a C. C. N. B. Meditating on in Saint Francis and his teaching and his experience all the way to Rome. That's actually the goal right and then the finishing point would be Saint Peter's or exactly what well we stop at Saint John Lateran But we end up at Saint Peter's then in my book I include the Pilgrimage Churches of Rome. Yeah as an option at the end because there are seven urban historic pilgrim churches. And it's about a twenty five kilometer walk and you hit. All seven of this. Church is quite an interesting walk in modern day Rome but touching on medieval medieval and ancient sites. Sandy Brown is the author of the CICERO trekking guide to the way of Saint Francis and Errands Italia heads and organization that prepares the American travelers to explore the pilgrimage trails of Italy. We have links to their websites with this week. Show at Rick Steves Dot com slash radio so sandy. When you come to Piazza del Popolo I I try to think of it? Like a pilgrim five hundred years ago. Yeah what do you think when you come to Piazza. No Popolo one thing is before you get there you would have crossed the Ponti Mill View. And that's a wonderful wonderful historic place because that's where the vision of Constantine was where the cost went back in three twelve or three ten or something. Exactly yes then and you follow the road in to Piazza del Popolo. And of course would you would say and what I would say. I is go into the Santa Maria Church and look at the car of Agios right right so that's a piece that you have to do and then we would want people to walk along the ancient streets that had toward the Vatican so so there's the street where they made the beads that go on the rosaries uh-huh and that's a street that we'd want people to go and sort of skirts along the top of the You you know a couple of other. Like Piazza NAVONA. Right on the way to Saint Peter's and if you're a pilgrim you would know that I go down this boulevard to that obelisk and then I looked to the left after nicey a dome and then I looked on there and I see a statue and you you would know how to navigate through the city by these long beautiful elegant streets that lead to great landmarks works. Yes and specially the pedestrian streets so by the time a pilgrim gets to Rome. They've walked maybe a hundred or a thousand or seventeen hundred kilometers commodores. So they're also looking for a bed and a cafe and Wanted to do the kind of walk. It'll get him in the most economical kind kind of way to their destination but then when they arrive in Saint Peter's there is a certificate that it can receive if they've walked at least one hundred kilometers. It's the equivalent on the Community Santiago. Is that Compostella. This is called the testimony. I'm okay and so that's a nice treat for us and I was going to ask you about this. I know when you go to community Santiago. You clicked this passport. Talk about the credential in the practical reason for that when you are a pilgrim in Italy heading to Rome so the credential or they called the credence Ya gala. It's of paper. That's like your passport. That's what differentiates you as a pilgrim from. Just anybody else traveling. So certain places. We'll give you discounts on your lodging. If you have your credential in basically every town you stop and you get a stamp along the way and then when you arrive at Your Final Destination Chan that sort of your proof that hey. I'm pretty awesome because I just did this. Really Amazing Walk and these are the stamps to show it in Rome. Is there actually a a regular place that you go and you can. There's there's somebody there and their job is to stamp this credential yes you go to the pilgrims office and I did not have to wait at all we went in. I was walking with with four friends and we arrived. We had to fill out a piece of paper and it was actually quite emotional thinking you know this is. My journey is officially Dinan. I'm filling out this paper showing where I started. And you get your final stamp and then you receive your like Sandy said your testimony them and then you have a souvenir for this gassing to remember and it's probably a beautiful moment

"For me. I kind of knew that initially when I first came pitchers kind of keep away from you and then when you pay for me obviously I was stronger. Longer hitter source physical so once I got my own and I had good power to right field so then generally the book against me was you know you have to pitch in inside inside. You can't let him get his arms extended so I started in second year third year getting more which is On the inside part of the plate and I that was all played as well so it wasn't like I was crowding played like some guys do a and so I kinda knew when a guy hit me pretty much knew in the big league level with the amount of control that these guys had it. I took one in the back or or in the arm. I kind of knew that they were pretty much doing that on purpose. Right and again. That's I mean generally I would say I mean of course from guys plummeted and if the ball movie gets away from them and and that does happened but And the circumstances of the game as well you kind of new that they're used to it. I mean you have that instinct and kind of they would ah usually. Wasn't that usually pretty actually right. And you've been on your behind the plate catching games and you're standing ending in the box. You know trying to just crush pitchers and I guess with the benefit of hindsight with all that is spoken about with unspoken rules and you know an eye for an I. Is that something that you've changed your view of as you've gotten older. Is that something that you never agreed with. Where do you stand on the sort of retaliation element and of of baseball? Well again. You understand and it's gone. See Whenever Lucien I think and the rules were different. I mean when I came up or even when I was a kid I mean it was just. It was different rules and I feel that generally the game kind of police itself. And they're usually wasn't. I mean there was some bad brawls of course and it was something that we all know really enjoyed. It was just unfortunately part of the game but It was pretty. It was pretty sort of obvious that like I said someone who knew someone was head hunting or or they were getting frustrated. They wanted to Get off the plate or take away team's momentum. Yeah it was. It was a tool. It was a tool to try to To take a team is I said you know. Make them less aggressive play. Make them a little less comfortable at the plate and then of course It was pretty much the the warnings and and the throne guys our the higher strong guys out automatically for hitting a guy just wasn't it just wasn't there and it changed the throughout my career and now today so you get hit in the head you get knocked out. You have a concussion. Does that change your perspective active. You know at the play. This is serious life stuff. Are you having conversations with coaches with doctors with family. You know is there. Is there anything you can actually do due to avoid something like that to alter how you are at the plate or is it just a byproduct of you happening to be very good at hitting baseballs. Well well it made me more determined. I mean not not just in relation to getting his head at that time but When I felt like I was was Thrown yeah I mean it.
