Being The Black Sheep Of The Family

"Hey sugar china outback back with the festival. China i just wanted to do this episode. i'm right now. Currently i'm always historic store and stuff but the name of this episode is the black sheep of the family so basically league on down for those of you who probably are unaware of what. That's her beans I'm gonna be truthful so basically being black sheep of the family The sense of belonging can fill existence acceptance by family members often feels more like a tolerance rightly or wrong. We get the distinct impression that our families are tolerating us because they have to but they'd be more than willing to approve of us if only we change The things that make us the black sheet are the very things that make us who we are. And we can't change them even if we wanted to so basically I know that. I am because ever since i was little. I was always outspoken I would ask why Kinda like my youngest son And you know i. I wasn't one of those children who were who's a follower or easily influence. If i did anything in my life. Because i wanted to or i was curious about it and so basically you know being the black sheep. You can always feel like whenever you have accomplished accomplishments Even with parents or family. Or you know what i'm saying Siblings you feel like you're accomplishments mean nothing because of maybe their responses like you can share you know one of your accomplishments and it'll be like. Oh okay that's good that's crazy you know versus Someone else in your family doing maybe something similar and it's like they're talking take and is like You know i'm not gonna fucking shakoti coat it but they're taking And basically of whatever you just really like even if you don't get labeled you know like when you're the black sheep you know what i'm saying i know that Me i'm the type of person i just have a of my own. I don't care where no one thinks of me. I don't care but anyone's opinions are yes. Everyone's entitled to their opinion as far as constructive criticism. I it's harder for me to take constructive criticism from person. That's not doing better than me. Now if they're giving suggestions that's cool but some people try to tell you how to do something and they don't even have their life together so it's like i'm not taking no advice from anyone who's not doing better than me because i want to take from someone who's actually has results mean someone who's actually living living that truth i don't wanna be Taking from someone who's not speaking from experience like as far as relationships goes or or Career that is my decision. No one else is like. I'm not taking. Nobody's advice unless they've already experienced it themselves and the black sheep is my my willingness to take to take a chance. You know what i mean. I've always been impulsive. I've done things you know what i mean. I've had experiences in my life. That i'm not gonna say that i'm proud of but i'm happy. It happened because those are the things that shaped me today. You know what i'm saying. And if i didn't go through those things i wouldn't be as wise as i today or you know what i mean. All going backwards because some people wasted their. My agents are doing start having a midlife crisis and do all the things that they should have been doing and their younger days. I mean also So there's there's always going to be a black sheep and then there's the golden child so You know the golden is the one that appearance praise and every time. There's something going on with them. There's like they're being dick suckers like they're so happy for them and they start what they're doing to make sure like saying if it's I like i have this term that Mothers from the generation Maybe two or three generations. Before me. I would say in their forties and They basically raised their daughters and love their sons. And when i say that. I'm saying that they were so hard on their girls but when it comes to their boys is like they can do no wrong. And they're there every step of the way and and and and and enabling them and babying and it's like that's why women have such a tough exterior now. that's why women are stronger than men. I don't care what nobody says. A lot of things that women go through or went through a man can't stomach especially when it comes to hurt especially when it comes to the lies especially when it comes to the catholics especially when it comes to the struggled a lot of men struggle because they want to because they're lazy women always find a way nothing. There's not men in this world at home. I mean but there is a lot of of of there's a lot of women who Who are really like better bosses than these numbers out here. Like own ways having hustle. Always finding and i'm not talking about public assistance or any governmental finds. I'm talking about actually hustling. You're not hustling selling drugs. But finding a new a new trade or finding a new way to make money legally you know what i mean while the men sit back and make excuses you know what i mean so being the black sheep it may sound like like the worst thing in the world but it actually saves you a lot like you're not you're not the family member that's going to take other people both it and stuff like that. You're you're basically going going to have a mind of your own. You're not gonna go for something just because they're family or you're not going to allow people to treat you a certain way because their family or a friend or or you know what. I mean or an adult of older generation. And you're to have your own you're going to do your own thing and black sheep stand out because they're they don't they don't know how to be fake was on their mind maybe impulsive risk-takers a lot of things that people are afraid to do they. Do you know what i'm saying. And i would consider myself that because i've always had on of my own and i don't have to have a whole bunch of friends to have a happy life like other people like other people that always constantly needs to be around a group of people in order to feel happiness like someone else does not pay my happiness. I can make myself. You know what i'm saying and a lot of people need that a lot of people are needy. I'm not that so. I would consider myself that. And then I'm not wearing this idol as a badge of honor. I'm just saying that you know. I mean i know you know when you know yourself. A lot of people don't know they that's why they struggle with life because they don't know what they wanna be they don't know what they wanna do m saying as far as me. I know that i procrastinate lot. And there's times when There's times when. I give a project like if i feel like overly taking my mom and i don't see them progression a move onto the next thing like i'm always finding something to keep myself busy because if i if i i'll go crazy if i can't keep myself busy or find something that i'm passionate about or interested in doing like a and that's what keeps me going like always finding something to get into to keep me busy to keep me grounded You know what i mean and basically. There's saturday reasons of why p. boost tends to create. But this is the these. I'm going to give you three sides that Your family has a black sheet so number one would be one member often over a long period of time. Seems her angry for no apparent reason. That's not a black sheep so let me explain. That would be someone who's actually miserable. That has nothing to do with being a black sheep. Plachy is who their leader two things on their own m saying they're not afraid to take risks like i said but when it comes to black sheep you'll tennessee family members talk back.

Download the free anchor app and go to anchor dot f. m. to get. It started later at about them. Because they don't go to the family gatherings or they. They are intimidated. Say things like oh well or she thinks she's they're better. They don't have to come around. No going to succumb to your bullshit your negativity just because you're family you know what i'm saying. They're gonna do their own. Fucking thing So they sent to call. Those people like a weirdo. Whatever the case may be. I am considered a loner. Like i can't deal but everyone energy yes. I'm a super friendly person. I get along with well when i see that. It's a constant friction. Like you always got drama on gonna bother with that. I have anxiety. So i'm not gonna make your problems my problems especially if i don't put my problems on you you know what i'm saying They usually don't invite this person because they're intimidated. And they know that this person might still the tension so a lotta times. You'll see a quote that says On night invited because they don't want me to pay attention but like i say it's looked black. Being bill actually is looked at in a negative way from first some people because they people don't like different. I noticed that a lot of people don't like different so when you give a difference of opinion or a different outlook is people tend to say like. Oh you're here or Because you actually have a mind of your own and not following a train and being the trendsetter They basically look at it as a negative way but You know what. I'm saying and to be perfectly honest. A lot of people want to belong like she don't have that feeling like you know mean they don't have to be accepted they going live their life But sometimes you do want to have family that actually consider you. You know what i'm saying. I i just went. They wanna use you or you know what i'm saying. They don't even have to be used you for money could be used for your energy because they're either super boring or they have that energy where they're used to being in a household where no one has to speak with each other. You know they don't eat dinner together. Everyone's allowed to go in there with the door close with no type of communication. Besides hi good morning was up keeping moving. You know what. I'm saying If you are a black sheep in your family. I just want to let you know that you don't have to get your family. Takes up to that you can give So much freedom to make your own choices in life you don't have to follow just because people put these these stipulations on their children where they want them to be doctors and lawyers and ain't even a fucking doctor or lawyer. You know what i'm saying like if they place these expectations and it's like do you even know what your child likes to do. Do you know what their what their favorite color is or what. Their hobbies are inflicting. Your dream on them which is definitely not who that's number one Being a black sheep could is like i said can be looked at in a positive manner because you distance yourself and talk to people. You don't allow yourself to tell with toxic behavior. Like i said just because the person is your family mother. Father sister brother cousin. You know what. I mean It makes you self sufficient because a lot of people in this world like that are fucking needy. They tend to to have expectations that they're not willing to to to to reciprocate. You know what i'm saying. So it makes you super self sufficient. Being different from your family could teach you independence and i mean you can trust that your family members to help you make choices. That would be the best to you. But they'll always be thinking about their own interests and you have your own interest. Basically like that's what sets you apart and Sometimes being black sheep. You don't even like to go to your family with problem. Because they don't have some people have a lack of interest like you could bring up something to them and it's like super dry and once you start feeling like that like you use this for like okay so you just wasting your breath just you know confided in you for no reason basically Being a black sheet makes you stronger. It gives you strength because you learn to deal with things. Pan h- had You you tend to deal with things head on like you don't have to wait or on somebody else to keep. It took to get whatever it is your agenda done. You know what i mean like i said your self sufficient it makes you eek like like i said a lot of people are running around like robots like mystery to or you know what i'm saying. Don't have them on their own. They follow whatever. The trend is there coles or people who they know nothing about. And i'm saying they look up to people who they don't even know what they really go through. Honestly you know what i mean. They're just looking at face. Value like a pitcher fucking. Whatever this louise whatever celebrities whatever It definitely shows coverage. Because you're you're you tend to Deal with things on your own. You don't need. You're not relying on anyone else. Especially when it comes to survive in this world like you know what i mean. You're not Like you know one of those people that won't call up and be like. Hey what should i do for this nigga you go look for. Look look you know. Look for the cure yourself whereas other people tend to parents still have they fucking birth certificates they social security that you've got to the thirty four years old so accident their parents. Hey you have this document. The they've they super self-sufficient What else was i gonna say So where blacks. originated from it was like born until a flock of white sheet and the black wool was considered like commercially undesirable because it provides and the eighteenth and nineteenth century in england and so the black color of the sheep was as a mark of the devil because they obviously was unique they and look like a cloned like the rest of the sheep. They considered an outsider. Because it wasn't white it was plaque. You know what i mean. So that goes into slavery as well So basically people who tend to use the word black sheep interrogatory way which is crazy to me because anything outside of the ordinary is always questioning. They believe everything else. You know what i mean. Because that's what they're used to. So who somebody who wants to step out that box and do their own thing. They basically they find odd. And you know what. I mean basically. So that's what i wanted to do is leave out with that. It's okay if you black sheep of the family you don't have to look for acceptance that's the these higher black sheep because you don't fill the needs to be accepted you know what i'm saying You would like to have You know show to get the same love that you you're willing to show because you know how to love because you know how you wanna be loved basically So i'm basically here to tell you like if you feel like you're the black sheep don't like is More things giant basically. So but again i want to chat with the definition before closed this episode so being the black sheep is like just being abol member of the family who does not fall in line with and they're considered the worst family member so they also they also Consider a black sheep. Someone who makes a decision has a reputation of of with their family unit. Like the rest of them may follow the laws and the person who is considered the black sheep of the family They said to be super impulsive. The army out while also use to describe Them drastically in behavior when they don't always have to be that way because wanting to to be on person and being impulsive doesn't necessarily make you a bad person what i'm saying They use the word actually to say someone who doesn't fit in. But thank you for listening can seem to to support my podcast ever member votes of me daily. I'm still in this inc. mac. Competition up until march Right now i'm compete in the top five for this round or whatever i think it ends like five days but thank you everyone for your support and i love you.

I'll do about anything one hundred bucks. I wanna see on skates. We'll all get together. We haven't gotten together as a show in a while. Well in a year and a half we should do it. We should do it coming up in july. So yeah there's another good one. There's another good. One just goes very underrated. I was gonna suggest dodgers game. But i mean i guess you could twist my arm for disk mode skating. Yeah i will go to dodger game anytime with any you guys. I'm like all offer go. And they play the diamondbacks. That's next weekend. The okay yeah. That's a win. That's guaranteed win night. The diamondbacks are so awful. Meanwhile guaranteed win night in san diego last night. Dodgers lost again. I fell asleep. We were up three two and blake trying and ended up playing. You a little bit for this. Because you you pooh-poohed the padres now never took them seriously and hubris very guilty of in regards to the padres has come back to bite you in the ass. Well here's my response to that. The padres are still behind us in the standing right but they were beating us like a drum. I'm way more concerned about the giants who are turning out to be a real thing. We're now four games behind the giants. Four games beyond the giants. The padres are one half game behind us but the giants are starting to look real. And so i was looking today trying to figure out what is wait. A minute morales just sent me what plachy wrote. This is absolutely directed at you all right. Here's what plachy wrote in his com. Today you can hear it from local radio. Personalities who openly brag about disliking the clippers while begrudging there every success. That is you use my name. Bill your same name. We had like a thought that bill was friend of the show. I thought we kind of moved past the whole negatively thing right bill. Well i think we are little. Here's another stations though too. Yeah bill bill gets around mine mine name so the interesting thing about ski and i was shocked by this when i went to lindsay theories wedding. Our friend lindsay theory covers the rams force. Bill plachy was the the reverend the assyrian the efficient. Yes and he did a fantastic job. If one and i ever decide to get married despite him taking a shot at me in whatever column he wrote in the l. a. times today i would like bill to officiate. Our wedding gifts that ever were to happen by the boss. Amanda in for roller disco. Okay so the wedding. I went to and denver last weekend. Is something interesting you know. You don't have to have a man of the cloth or a registered official. Be the lead of your ceremony. I got registered. Did once they think you needed to go through the trouble of registering. Yeah i think that anybody can. I mean at the end of the day. None of it matters unless you have the license they fill out at the county court do that you can bozo the clown officiate. Your wedding. i mean it hasn't greater so what did they do at the wedding. You went to got. They got like an old family friend and he was really funny and really good. Yeah that's that's what lyndon she got. Bill plachy is co worker from the la times who had a great sense. At least you don't need a man of the cloth you can just get married now. They'd always makes me think of David our friend. Our former producer. David singer who got married He's jewish and his wife. Patti is catholic and so their idea was have a both a priest and a rabbi getting together and who is late the priest of the rabbi the priest lake. I would guess the it would have been if i had to guess it would be a priest. Wait a minute why would you guess. It's the freeze like priests have a reputation for being late to thing does. Yeah no so we got a priest and so the rabbi started the ceremony and then the priests came up and he arrived he johnson and closed it. Sure he say. I'm sorry for being late. And he said Tonner and hold and all that stuff to cheese point. It's not just. This is a misconception that it's just radio talk show hosts right are mocking the clippers. Bill's smart enough to know that if you go to a public event and they put the clippers on display. Go to dodger stadium. They put the clippers on the jumbotron. You go to disneyland in. One of the clippers is there. They are openly mocked. Now this is coming from a guy who used to work for the clippers and has nothing against the my. Pick the clippers to win this series going to the finals. But you still think they're going to win this series gotta win tonight. They win they lose them out. This break year. Must-win rule can't say it's not must-win if they if they don't win but i still too was one of the great. What the bed moments in clippers history. I mean they had back had that game. Paul george paul george. What playoff p. What a moment. What a terrible for him. Let's see how the. I think the clippers also say it now The game is what three hours four hours away. Yeah i think the cooper's blow out the sense tonight. No sons are one point favorites. And they get chris cooper's by double digits. Yeah gimme the sons in another close and if they don't if you're right then the series is over. There's no way they're coming back from then. It's all done boy. I will as As bill plachy wrote about me this morning. I will openly brag about disliking the clippers while begrudging there every success. Although if you noticed. I dialed it back a little bit. Well that's because the man is sent out that email. That told us to stop bagging on the clippers. You know what though it's it is kind of that but it's also after that loss in losing that way like i was gonna troll that night. I had my tweet deck open after they lost. And i decided no i. It live stream punch lee. Didn't throw in when he was going down it they they were. They did it themselves. They reaped enough a abuse upon themselves. I didn't want rub them. I'm sure nice people who root for the clippers. I didn't want to rub their nose in it. So i didn't tweet and i've i've i've laid off a little bit. I mean i feel it. I've got your pain. You're down to and all that stuff. And i know there are people out there several of you. Both of you actually are really upset. You clipper fans say my name. Say my bill. Plaski say my name is bad press. That's mostly true. I just the thing. I'm gonna wonder just like i'm really gonna wonder how lebron and anthony davis stayed healthy. If the lakers could have gone back to back. I wonder what this series would've looked like if could've played. They would've won. Chris paul one at a time finals. Mvp to that team. I think they went. Yeah but chris. Paul has has chris. Paul has the best player. Never go to the finals. Yeah he hasn't played yet either. But i mean in the end nobody will remember. Well i guess really hard core guys like us the first thing. We're going to say when you win a title. Nobody remembers the circumstances surrounding. Nobody remembers it. When the warriors when their first title over the cavs that kevin love and kyrie irving both went out right you know they just remember that the warriors one injuries are part of the game. Availability is a big part of in by the way since ten. Different allstars went down. There's going to be a team that has never won the title win it this year. So there you go i b. It's the hawks. Won it in the fifties. Maybe early sixty the hawks. They pray young was so great last night and as such a i think he's just a charismatic star is a. I don't understand what milwaukee was doing. So what what atlanta. Close you watch that game but i i watched the last ten minutes all right so atlantic kept putting every time down the floor. They could put in trae young in a pick and roll up. You gotta decide. Do you go out on trae young and try and take away his jumper or guard him to keep them from going to the basket and shooting. Those floaters they for. Some reason came to the conclusion that they would just back up to see. What trae young's gonna do them wide open and he scored forty eight points. That was some of the weirdest defense i can ever remember seeing. I didn't understand why they kept backing up right. Then all trae young had to do is shoot it and he was seventeen thirty four yet. You know he show business too. I mean i'm not sure. Do you think we got four. Sort of unheralded teams that are still alive and the finals are going to be a zone thrown all time. You think lowest rated finals of all the time. Yeah me too me too. It's a fortune out. I think the star power helps. I think trae young is emerging as a charismatic superstar in this game but bigger than you with no not bigger than. Yeah well. I mean bigger than janas last night. Right bigger than janas. Last night. he plays the game with style. he's got a swagger about him which makes them really interesting. And i wondered last night. Is he the new steph curry. Or is that overstating it probably overstating it at this point but who knows. I mean i'll tell you this. There's not one person. I know who covers the league. Who thought that the. You're the hawks traded luka doncic trae young yes and there's nobody. I know who thinks that was a good trade but now starting to think. Yeah well i mean not even you. You wouldn't take over luca. Would you know no. But it's it's becoming a match deal. It's now a conversation when before it was just like. What are you kidding me. Yeah now it looks like trae. Young is going to be a big star. Yeah yeah it's a great great game last night. It was a fun finish. It was a fun finished to that game. These games the games themselves have been very good but because the teams are sort of unheralded while they are unheralded. The i'm not sure if the average sports fan is necessarily locked in the way they would be if it was steph curry or it was obviously lebron if it was the lakers if it was the warriors if it was a major they were major sort of market franchise teams. I think we would obviously have better ratings but yeah i think it's going to be a low rated series. Even though i think the games will be great. These teams all look evenly matched and i. I can imagine a scenario where three of the four could actually win it. Why did the clippers. Honestly i think any of the morning you. The three of the four can win it. Well that's because you you're a radio talk show host. Who openly mocks my name. Bill plachy say it same name. Yes all right there. You go all right coming up next for john. I did something last night. You are never ever supposed to do. And we'll tell you what that is coming up next. And then we'll spin the wheel of questions at one thirty mason ireland seven. Oh hang on a second mason's movie night is back. You go in a four pack of tickets to see the private advance screening of marvel studios black widow with me. And the whole gang here on thursday july eight at the regal cinemas in west covina join us which is going to be a fun night and an advance screening of the big new marvel movie. Make sure you're listening today at three thirty for your chance to win. Mason ireland seventeen. Espn ireland go through your calendar. Find out the date. You can go disco roller skating okay. Hundred bucks okay. And bring lisa lisa and have fun. We can do it as all gang. I'll bring one. Let's see whore. He'll bring brenda bassem and is going to be there. Chrystler allison is going to be there. Pick a date. It's all based on your schedule. All right i'll be there when michaels there. Oh god come on. The part of the team knows the picture. Michelson out last week with his bell-bottoms and his two tone shoes yes. I did awesome disco outfit. That sure was bottoms. it we should. We should all dress up spice apple of the sad thing about it up. I don't even have to change my work true. Yeah i gotta get one of those silk shirts. Everybody wore a silk shirt during the disco era. I saw last night. I did something john and whore. Hey and lindsey that you are never ever ever supposed to do ever. I was warming up a bowl of soup. And i left the spoon in the ball as i warmed it up in the microwave. It's in the microwave okay. I'm surprised did you get sparks nothing. It's a complete exaggeration. If you happen to put metal in the mike. I'm not advising you to do it but if you happen to put metal in the microwave absolutely nothing happens. There are several things that fall under this category that we as humans have been told you. You can never do that really. There is no consequences. If you're doing the biggest lie that people tell you is you can't talk on your cell phone on an airplane or it's going to screw up the navigate. Yes that's a lie because on charters everybody is when they get near a city. Yeah i mean i. Phones rang in the air. Before you know. When i've been on a private plane so that that's a big lie number one. Don't go swimming half an hour after you eat. That's another one. That was legal. I s that my mom. Whatever you want and then go jump in the pool that -solutely that was a big lie. I remember going to the lucas county recreation center and my mom would take a swimming and we would eat a sandwich and then she'd say now you have to wait a half hour a bunch of crap. Yeah but but the thing you did. I've put like a the wrong kind of bull in a microwave. And it's i've seen sparks metal bowl like a non microwaveable dish with metal handles or something. I saw absolutely nothing. I went back super hot same. Why didn't i switched spoons because the spoon did get hot But no. I was expecting sort of that thing that happened in american hustle where jennifer lawrence put the something metal in what she called the science of and it just blew up. I is expecting when i when i got there. I thought oh my god. I've left the spoon. Something's going to be nothing so if you happen to do it please do not worry about it. It's probably not that big a deal. Probably not that. Big a deal so ireland. I was looking at the giants this morning. Because the giants are now four games in front of the dodgers. And i'm starting to wonder if they aren't the real deal you know they Brandon crawford's having a really big year for them sixteen homers buster. Posey's having one of his best season brandon belt. Mike yastrzemski their rotation has been great. Kevin gosper is eight and one with a buck forty nine era. He's a cy young candidate. Anthony desclafani who came from the reds eight and two. He's got a shot to be really effective and a great bullpen. Our bullpen has a three eighty three eight zero. That is eleventh th the giants bullpen. Three point three. Five dodgers are fourth in which is great giants are third. They are eleventh in home runs. We are eleventh in home runs. The giants are number one in home runs and as a team were only batting to forty one. We are off to a very very underwhelming start and if you notice against good teams. The dodgers aren't great. They're very good against abbas below average teams yep but when a good team roles in they. Struggle in the padres is the best example of that. I still think the dodgers will figure it out because think about this for most of the season. Mookie betts has been hurt he cody. Bellinger's been out cory. Seager spin out. They lost in may for the year. David price one in the dl. Tony gone was in the deal. They've had a remarkable run of injuries. If they can get their people healthy. And i think by the end of the year segar. They're not gonna get dustin may back but they're going to seager bellinger just came back and but he's only played seventeen games and well but when you get those guys healthy then you have the real dodgers. So i think they're going to be fine but you're right so far. No great shakes. This dodger team is very with mookie. Betts he's only two forty he's he's has yet to be to the d. l. yet but bill plunkett wrote a big thing about this in the paper he ever since he suffered that back injury early in the season he hasn't been the same to forty nine nine homers twenty. Rbi sees a replacement level player. Right so i think i think is back must be bothering him. Yeah hopefully not through it. Yeah yeah so. I'm a little eight eight seven seven ten. Espn by the way phone lines are always open here. We'll take a call anytime anytime. Eight seven seven seven ten. Espn you can tweet us at venice. Mace mash at la ireland. And you can email us. Venice mesa at gmail.com. Although i've been really bad at following up on on email so far so john tonight is the night i think tonight is the night that the dream of the clippers comes crashing down. You think the suns win game three. I think the suns win game three tonight at staples center. Do you know many playoff games in a row. The sons of one no nine. They've won nine consecutive games. Yeah they went to straight against. The lakers are three straight against the lakers. They've won then. They swept their second round series. And now they're up to oh in this one so they've won nine straight playoff game so you may be onto them. Maybe their campaign is something right. Yeah but now. Chris paul's coming back so now corresponds a fantastic job. You know what. Tiffany cameron payne. He basically was there for anybody. He was a journeyman. He couldn't get off. The bench and oklahoma city couldn't get off the bench in chicago. Got sent down to the d. league wound. Something happened to him where he just woke up. I think he went to the same colleges. John moran i think he went to murray state. But he i mean sometimes the fear of losing your career. Yep motivates you and this guy figured it out. now he's probably played. This postseason is probably because he was great against the lakers. Sure this postseason. He's probably played his way into contracts employees. Yeah i think so. I think so. He's he's been key for them throughout this run and has made all the all the difference you know can i. Can i throw something at your. Nba jalen rose said about the olympic team. Know he's that. Kevin love is on the olympic team. Because if he wasn't it would be an all black team going to the olympics. That's really his thing. So here's his exact quote. Don't be scared to make it in all black team representing the united states. I'm disappointed by that. And i think what he's saying is kevin. Love is not one of the best. Twelve players right now in the world absolutely. Not but i had a completely different take than jalen. I looked at the team. Pull up the roster. Where's the size. I think the only reason they're going to kevin love is because they need his height. I don't think it matters that he's white. I think he'd matters that he's tall. Other than bam out of bio in kevin love. Do they have durant but he's not really a center. No durand not a center lillard item. Also how would zach levine. Right hand is a big. Yeah how would that team so you get more than one. Big in case draymond green plays like he's not a big but he played big but at least kevin love could like if you run into serbia and you have to guard yokich. Yeah then. I think kevin love gives you size. I find the suggestion that they wanted a white guy. Just a white guy to balance the roster as offensive. I don't think who else was interested. Who else got left off of this thing right that we wanted to play. But but that what. You're saying what you're offended by happened in. Ucla's in the sixties and the seventies all the time. Yeah but that was the sixties and the seventies two thousand twenty one but really think somebody who looked at and said hey. I think we need a white guy jalen dez. Yeah jalen i. I completely disagree with them. I do not. i cannot believe that. That's what they said that. There was a conversation with gregg popovich and usa basketball where they said. Well we got this roster jerry colangelo. He's wearing the roster but we need to add somebody out. There disagrees if you think kevin white kevin love was put on the team specifically because he's white. I'd love to hear that theory. Yeah as seven seventeen. Espn jump in here. Eight seven seven seven ten espn. I find that kind of offensive. You never know something on the wheel of questions could wind up being offensive that coming up. Yeah the wheel of questions next and no running much smoother now no idea what question might pop up on the wheel of questions. That is coming up next for you. Plus your calls eight seven seven seventeen. Espn mason in ireland. This is seven to ten. Espn i'm a very very closed relationship. I'll up there some disco for for disco night. Roller- roller disco ireland. We need a day needed from your homework on it. Okay so I think randy newport's online before we spin the wheel of questions randy. You're on seven ten. Espn what are you doing. Man the freeway boys. What are you doing. We're doing our little radio show we do. We've been doing for twenty seven years. I've been through about a long while. Thank you thanks. Excellent web made you call in. I just like to say you know what is all the white team and a wife on counselor was disappointing that they added a black person to list right so in other words it was the reverse right right. Dial would be fired immediately. First of all and it would be it would be an outrage country right okay when it's the other way because the other way is what the country has been moving towards ever since the george floyd tragedy. Yeah they think this is a case of seeing race where where it isn't necessary. I mean if you tell me that this guy. I wanted to play. And he's not in or it should have been this guy instead of this guy. I'd listen to that argument. But i haven't heard jalen say oh they should've put this guy on instead of kevin love and again like a few years ago in the olympics. Mace when you went to the olympics yes. Both of the gazelle brothers played for spain. Yes so you had to seven foot guys on the front line look again at that roster if you look at the roster just spit again it specifically for basketball purposes. What do we do. I guess we could go small and just try and and be more athletic but you wanna have an option to go big sheriff. You need to yeah. they needed. They needed that. A big and those available and kevin lynch played for team usa before he's got gold metals. This makes sense. I don't think he's going to play very much. No this this makes a lotta sense. Yeah all right. Let's spend a granny. Thank you very much for the phone call. We appreciate you and appreciate you sticking with all that time. I we do this every day. At one thirty we have got a gigantic wheel and in each spot on the wheel. There is a different question. I want you to visualize this. Okay so we have no idea what the question is going to be whore is going to spin the wheel right now do it. It is wow. This is so really tough hypothetical. Okay what is it you are leading one hundred people whose lives are in danger and you must choose between two courses of action. One would save only ninety people with ninety of one hundred right. The other would have a fifty percent chance of saving everyone but where it to fail everyone would die so let me. Let me think this question. Okay so you can either have a chance at saving one hundred people but it might not work or you've got a fifty percent guarantee. Does that make sense. Yes hunter you're rolling the dice. You try to save one hundred percent of the people but so you get her teed yes you got a better chance of saving half the people than saving all the people there you go there you go. That's that's thing i wouldn't. This is an easy one for me. Every life matters. So i would try and save everybody even though you could lose everybody up. If i get fifty you tell me. I got a fifty percent chance of saving everybody. Yup casualties or one hundred percent. Chance of having ten casualties correct but ninety would make it. Yup yeah. I'm trying to save everybody. That is so tough. Would you save the ninety nine teed or the or trying to save one hundred knowing that you have fifty percent chance yeah lindsay. What about you. I think that i would also try to save everybody because then if you choose the other option you're going to get into the other dilemma of who are who is gonna have to stay behind you go into the lifeboats. I don't like you know looks of you out there. We all make it or none of us make it okay so lindsay and you can't touch this question. Were all involved in a shipwreck yup lindsay you of a lifeboat. That can save you and two other people you so you can save me mason and hallway but one of us is out who dies myself all three of you guys. You can't pick yourself. That's the answer. That's my answer would really sacrifice yourself. I'd feel too bad. I've been guilty the rest of my life. You'd be alive. I know but i would be guilty. The guilt would literally kill me horror. What about you if you say. Let's with the group all of us or none of us know but what about with the lifeboat dilemma. With the life phone can save two of us but not all three. Who's the odd one out. Geez okay yeah in ireland. Because we'll continue doing this so wait a minute throwing lindsay. Wow that is rough. That's okay. I see where your allegiances or hey you don't take seriously ireland. What would you say okay. I'm gonna unlike lindsey. I who decided she would go down with the show. I think it's a cop out if you say to. I would kill yourself mace. I hate to tell you this. But we're the oldest. Yes we've lived full lives. Yes we half your the odd one out. What your picking me. Yeah because you're you've lived a full life lindsay and of most of their lives. Horia has a baby. We can't kill him right yeah. He's twenty years younger than us. A well you know. I think you're onto something because i throw you overboard. I full life lindsay or hair young. Yeah we just turn on each other. But that's my honest answer. I would by the way. I would try and convince you of it. I would tell you. Okay mace here's why i'm doing it. They have you. And i have lived great light like we had. We've been in the top one percent basically our whole lives. You know so. Let's let's let them have a chance and we're not by the way mace. Because we're both we've both done well in life we would be leaving plenty to our loved ones that we left behind and to charity. I got a bunch going to charity. Wanna when i'm dead. Yeah so i would. Matter of fact i would rochambeau with you to see if it's either me or us but i can't i can't what's rochambeau rock paper scissors. Oh yeah because i but it's gotta be me or you this out because we've lived the longest just came down to you too. I feel like i would have to throw me out of the boat. Because john has a child lindsey. I think you're right. You know what. I do not mind being the one that gets thrown by the boat. Yeah i mean if now years ago we would probably have felt different right. But i mean frankly. I don't know by the way to put this in a sports context. Yes like every time. A league expands. Yes they can only protect a certain amount of guys on the roster. Like it's going to happen happened in hockey this year. They're bringing the seattle cracking the crack and great nickname. So each nhl they're gonna have an expansion draft and each nhl team is going to be able to protect seventy five percent of their roster. So but the twenty. You'll be surprised who's who's on that twenty five percent it'll be some established like all star level old guys because they figure they're only got two more years with them anyway and like if the sun's yeah i had to go through an expansion draft there they might not protect guys like jae crowder and chris paul. Sure 'cause. they're older. Chris chris. Paul but there for sure protecting booker in aden and bridges and those dudes yeah On the lakers should be protected. Well you got a particular barton. Ad because they're really good but then caruso t h t and that's really all we need to protect right. And then all casey p p two. I love jared dudley. Great guy going to be a good going to be a good coach going to announcer wants. Gm yeah know. I say this lifeboat story goes like this. It's all about the family in honor of did you learn. Did you learn nothing from watching the end tanic. If you get greedy then you'll end up on a piece of driftwood and sink to the bottom like to the bottom. Exactly exactly if kate winslet just wasn't hogging the whole piece of wood. Leo could fit on that on that piece oil. Let them drop. There was room ridiculous. There was some selfishness involved. There hundred percent by the way fast nine is opening tonight. I'm not going tonight. i'm going tomorrow. You wait a minute you can go tonight like every at the average person off the street and go tonight yeah. Seven o'clock is the is the screening for everywhere. Seven o'clock screenings. I think it's like seven nine ten screen. Whenever i wherever it take off with my friends we make up some mythical thing to play for. Yes so today. My friend glen. And i were on the same team. We're playing this guy and his brother. We said we're going to play for the gross box office of all of the fast and furious movies. And how much do you think. That is Maybe two point five billion six billion. Wow and that's before this one. That's crazy six billion on that now from the trailer. Do you have by the way a little clip of van. Let's hear some vin. Always come back together. So they're bringing back. Everybody for this one thing happened to me. Once some some i was in a group of people we're out drinking and somebody said man vin diesel. That guy was going to be movie stars soon as you heard his name when he was a kid and some of the guy across the room goes. His name is marks glare. He's jewish guy from new york. And i looked it's true. He's clarisse from greenwich village. Count up for you. Something we thought was going away because of the pandemic john is coming back with a vengeance. You know talking about me. Tell me it's not handshakes we'll talk about it coming up mason. Ireland seven ten. Espn oh disco day. Thursday mason ireland seven ten. Espn what are you guys doing. Thanks a lot for being out there so ireland you and michael thompson have said all along during the pandemic that you'll never shake hands again. I was right. This is about shaking hands. Today's national handshake day and at that wedding last weekend i hadn't seen a lot of these guys longtime so there are a lot of hugs but there were a lot of handshakes to i don't think the handshake has gone away. Well what i do is if somebody sticks out there hand. I stick out a fist. Fist-bump see i've got no issue with handshakes anymore we're all safe. We're all good if you've been vaccinated you're good. It doesn't live on services we've always done it. got bow. That's yeah my favorite. How are you going back to shake hands with. People like arnold. I'm doing fist-bump For now i'm not. I don't i don't know it's a little weird lindsay shaken aunt. What do we do when we saw each other last friday at venice beach like hook. I've been at this wedding. I had one hundred people. The hug is still in yeah. I don't care whether it's handshake whatever people want to do. I'm not going to be like no no no like michael said michael do that for you. Somebody wants to shake your hand. He'll wave them off and be like kobe. And i'm like i'm not doing that. That's ridiculous what if it was somebody who michael like super respected cream jabbar. It was bill. Russell walked up to michael and sick at his aunt. Michael would immediately shake hands and then pull the parrella out of his pocket will admit that when the times i haven't been able to get out of a handshake like when somebody walk up to me with their hands out and i don't. There's no easy way to do it. I'll just shake and then asked michael to borrow is pure l. c. I went to the wedding a couple of weeks ago and we all shook hands. I just. I don't think it went away. I don't think the pandemic has changed life as much as we thought it was going to. Do you think exchange life forever like what what is what are the permanent changes that have come from the pandemic. I think guests on tv can absolutely be on zoom now right. I think that the way the way people generally good decide whether i'd like older people i know aren't going out at all. They've just stopped. See my mom and not stepdad leo. Going wherever they want. Yeah good for that. My my dad and his friends and my mom and her friends like they. They're back to normal going out she goes. You're stitching stitching club. Data last weekend.

I said my dad went to a ball game last weekend. Oh good but my mom. So she's making quilts and stuff and raising raising barnes all that kind of business that they know. Cross-stitching is league needlepoint. It's like a design on a pattern. She's obsessed with it doesn't she. Occasion like raise a barn or make a quilt.

Every friday night at the new art at midnight all these years later you can still see the movie that's to me. That's the definition of a call. Move now for for you guys teed you up on this your favorite cult movie right so when i hear cult movie i think of a movie that when it came out was really no big deal. Guess yet it's developed a cult following over the years yep for me. It's the movie office space. Oh yeah on cable. Every day somewhere and didn't do business when it came up back then was average now. If you see somebody in a restaurant you say. Are you wearing a lot of flair for a reason.

That's Why It's Called the Blues

"Passed between teammates are on review -able ham passes between teammates or unreviewed lable add demands on reviewable NHL things. If you saved enough, it'll move, everybody along, and there's nothing to see here, there is something with this panel. Let's go around the horn. Great credit is a look at night, maybe better. If it wasn't allowed, you know. How Jose one last night in overtime to take a few one series lead Meyer, the past his hand Carlson gets the buck, and that's the goal that's game how the reps missus counseled together and heard from the war room Toronto pan passes between teammates are unreviewed lable, quote, I really didn't get an explanation other than I guess, there's a different set of rules for two different teams and quote, Saint Louis captain Alex pitcher. Angela guess that's why they call it. The blues Sarah did Saint Louis get rob. This happened. Well, they call it the blues because of their history of disappointment, but they don't need any help disappointed in themselves from the officials, so. Oh, I'm Joe. Listen. You can't change the rules mid game. And so I think this rule will probably be changed. This is one of those moments like we saw with the saints in the NFL where I think the offseason will see change what you can be mad about is that the officials missed it. I don't know if that's what built. But can you call it a no look pass, if none of the officials are looking when you make it why. No one saw that. It was a hand best. Yeah. Yeah, that's. I don't blame them for being critical of what happened. The problem is that the only fix will not help this game and this series. It will only come in the future. And if you can look at guys who might be offsides who are uninsured in a play if you can track back to assist on every goal, but you're not willing to look at those assists in review them. That's the problem, get you haven't even said a word basically. And you have your best answered show history. Go ahead. Yes. Yes. Injured good answer for me. No. When will leave realize the fans just want to get it, right. They don't care if they changed their rules if they break the rules on the spot, they could have a lot easier time to fending breaking its rule that it would be defending this call. It should have changed. The call on the spot there. Somebody. Why isn't every go reviewed every John, the NFL's reviewed wise in every goal of every single game every hard every goal I think is what you're saying because every goal is review. Yes, you're saying every part of every goal and this gets me thinking, I'll turn to you me, too. What would happen if the NHL or any league because this is happening in every every every week, it seems like would say letter. The law says one thing, but spirit of competition says maybe we'll look at this and change this and we'll live with those consequences. Would it be better? If that were the case. Yes, it's easy to say. But it's harder to execute in practice. Right. Because if every part of every goal is reviewed where do you stop? Where does it begin? You could put ten refs out there and they still get something wrong. I think unfortunately there's nothing you can do a situation like this except change the rules, make it reviewable. And this is a lot easier by the way in the NFL example, which, you know had some controversy because happens all the time this doesn't happen that much in a game, I was actually shocked that it wasn't reviewable. Right. Whereas an asides call which actually affected San Jose earlier in the playoffs. You can Tim Lynch's offsides and get reviewed. We want you can slap a to your team with your hand. It's not reviewable. That's that's another point here. Bob Ryan, San Jose. God some calls postseason. How did you review everything we saw last night? I think it would be very simple to do. So, and I totally Dorsey idea reviewing every goal. And I also think that, that part of the flip side of that I don't want to be doing making arbitrary judgments, if you have a rule as bad as it is, you have to live with it, and you have to fix it later, and I'll give you exhibit go right back to tuck rule the foundation of everything that's happened to patriots good in the last seventeen years. It was a terrible rule fopr called and they got rid of it finally because commonsense availed but, but the same this, this is very simple. I'm told that the problem here would be that didn't he didn't bat it into gold directly. It was passed to it was to the past before pass. I e the second assist doesn't matter to me that was should have been that should not have been allowed but by. It had to be I'm sorry, anything to series goes on Bill Plachy. She. Oh, I think the blues, I think the blues out hit the sharks. I think the play shorts for much of the game. The blues have to learn what the people in New Orleans didn't learn. They have to get over this real quick and get back. I think blue will be it'll be fine. Saturday could be galvanizing thing for Saint Louis. If anything might be galvanizing for the sharks that every single round. They seem to be getting a little help. It's like you know it's meant to be right. Okay. All right. Possibly she asks rhetorically out loud. I'm still giving you that anti Saint Louis slammed you had to start Chicago. We'll move bucks one away. Raptors one hundred Lopez game forever. Jovi note, I swing to Ugo plash key. How much of last night was Toronto? Seventy two hours after game seven riding the wave of emotion from the shot and then crashing in the fourth from dead-leg, and how much of it was Milwaukee slowly asserting dominance. You know, me I picked Ronald win the series ain't Toronto's through the series. This was Toronto giving this game away, Milwaukee didn't play this. Well, the Toronto missing in the fourth quarter everyone not named Lowry over fifteen. They miss her last eight shots. I believe they just got wiped out fatigue set into with them. This will not happen in forward in the series will be more on even ground. They really held you on, on a scored one one or two field goals in the second half, they held you on his down. I thought they kept the books in check. They just again we're exhausted and fatigued at the end of that. That's what happened. They gave the game away. They should've won the game. But this is not going to in this series therapy. I don't know if it's as simple as that because it's not like the bucks were flawless, down the stretch a ton of turnovers they weren't perfect either. You're probably not going to get twenty nine from Lopez. Every game Phelan the at twenty seven in the entire series against the Celtics. So it wasn't like the bucks, did everything perfect. And the raptors let it get stolen. It was. Absolutely. A combination of both and I think Bill is right on the fatigue aspect, when you are over fifteen in the fourth of, you're not Lowery, and that's the other issue for the raptors. We've talked a lot about Leonard needing more support, particularly from Lowry. He goes out and gets thirty and you still don't win the game you have to hope if you're the raptors you can get that kind of output from him again, but actually fit did tire Toronto team or Milwaukee teen slowly asserting dominance that makes you think this is the way the series is gonna go. I think it was a combination but it had to be a tremendous disappointment for Toronto. Because their game plan on defense was perfect right? Shutdown janas. Make his teammates go to work Sarah's right? Prick lopez. I love slash mountain, but he's probably not going to repeat that reform, actually only scored six more points in the second half. The difference was Toronto scored eighteen fewer points because they were exhausted, right? Kurai over three from the field in the fourth quarter. I think Nick nurse played him too much in this game. And I hope they changed their approach to account to that because they need him in the fourth game, every postseason started quad, maybe could play more now he's playing too much, and that's a question. Bob. I ask you. Well, if we're worried about that, that is already a problem for Toronto. Wait a minute. Twenty second on those t twenty during the regular season, you would think that seventy two hours is a bonus. It's a big. Okay. It's a lot of time off. So I don't wanna hear about the fatigue thing. It was a basketball game. It's a league in which as Doc Rivers has famously said it's a make mislead. Okay. And the fact is they got. And you say, well, let's take away the star and let someone else beat us. Well, guess what? That's someone else did. And by the way, he's a guy that in his previous pre three incarnation average as many as twenty points a game. He's not a stiff he has invented himself into being gutter, you happen to have a big career game. These things happen, that's over. Vote teams have recent say, hey, we can beat the other guy. It's game one last response above their Bob in the regular season regular season. They're usually equal west. But walk you had a week to prepare for this. They sat around for a rest. This. Significant difference. It's a significant difference. Week is a detriment the detriment didn't look like that much intervene in the fourth quarter. That's built plaschke's point. We'll move on Glazer's warriors game to you are Terry Stotts. Bob Ryan you are game planning. So tonight, doesn't look like Tuesday night versus the warriors. What do you do? I think first of all, so I know what the tendencies are. And I find out early on how they're going to call this game. You can't have Klay Thompson running around unimpeded to go appoint eight point being the side of the court, a nice catch shoot with nobody would feed them. You can't let curry operate the way they let him operate if they're gonna play Vanessa gonna lose. I'm by the flip side of this is there guys could go out and get sixty themselves. They they're the other explosive backward. So they gotta make curry work on defense may Klay work because he's good. But make them work Bill class for something Bill. What do you wanna you wanna fulltime out? I guess fulltime. Yeah. Yeah. Portland has to do is they they were fatigue Bob in game one. They they've had ample rest. Now, they will. Oh, you're the right. Us enough for Teague again, in Bob, you just saying they need to be on curry more because they retired last time. That's why they're not they'll be CJ McCollum, minus twenty. He was all he was not himself in that game. They need him. And then he and his canter to get on, on to both of those players key figures down the stretch for them. They both disappeared in game one. They need those steroids. Bannon game plan performance that well I I'm calling traveling on Bill. I don't know why just because I felt like doing that. I think the key is actually need to focus less on the defensive side, because the warriors are going to get their stuff. Korea hasn't had games like that throughout this postseason every night. So he might not shoot quite as well. The key is offensive Lee for the blazers giving them back what they're getting and that to me involves putting hood into the starting lineup and benching amino hood over the last eight games as averaging fifty points shooting fifty six percent from the field forty eight percent from three he has been their third or fourth best player. They need to insert him in the starting lineup and start out strong so that they offensively are giving the warriors as much to handle as they're getting Muda comes. Well for starters, don't turn the ball over twenty one times Dame Lillard needs to look more like a little I eleven games we averaged thirty points a game not sixteen two games. And finally, as everyone's been saying, you can't defend Steph, like he is Kuti's. You gotta get up in there. They had a huge out in last game. They cannot do that again. They got no shot anybody ticking. If I were to score, you guys tomorrow with a mute or point, I would like to have that nobody's thinking. All right. There's your warm by herself next raucous. Take fulltime out meet up. What are you trying to do to me on Snapchat? It's like king Mira. I was throwing faced boy. Pub loney. Oriali. Those disturbing. We're back to around the horn coming to you from the Heineken river decades here seventeen. Championship your. I may peach Brooks Kabgayi setting the course on fire seven under and he was playing with Tiger Woods. He's nine shots up on tiger. Woods. Tiger nine back on his first ornament since the masters win. That was his choice. And you only play nine holes of practice at Bethpage plash. What are you buying? What are you selling from today's first round Brooks? And tiger I'm buying talking about the first round of the PGA we've ever done that on this show before the fact is moved to may tremendous, tremendous issue and make it relevant. I'm selling the fact that everyone thinks Tigers had a bad round. He's no good anymore. He hadn't played in a month break, he hasn't played in a month and that was his decisions. Anybody question his lack of practice the series, Sarah, please, go ahead. If you want to do that, or you can talk Brooks up yet, maybe, I'll talk about the guy said, of course. Three sixty part, both par-five could've done better said afterwards could have been a great round. So everyone should be afraid of that. But this guy is so clutch in majors, we're always gonna talk tiger. Maybe we should talk about a guy who's kind of doing something similar to what tiger did in the early two thousand times. I'm gonna talk about tiger. What classy said earlier that people are saying he's done. I think we're past that with tiger. Right. Where it's constantly this debate over whether he's done. He is fully back. He's just not back today is putting up. He looks Radic. It's just not his term. But it doesn't mean he's done willing to say it's over though in this twenty nine back, you could be done by lunch. Thursday afternoon. Okay. Bob ryan. How about you? No one's ever come from more than eight. Back in the eighteen in this. It's not about. Do. Oh. This is about a man who not. We talks to talk sprinted not walked to his sixty three actor. Dissecting the tournament field saying half of them have no chance. And then talked about the other guys without using the word. C. H O E. He implied. To the rest of his competitors doing flaxseeds joke AA, and that's why he doesn't see. And that's why he's the best guy in the world right now, which for the last two years, he's been. It's not about tiger. Woods. Yes. Really? Move on by herself to sport. The grizzlies possessors of the number two pick. We'll take John Morand with the number two pick. If Zion goes one that Jonathan davonte of ESPN, citing sources in my family, we call it gravy. Bob Ryan virus. Memphis. Letting that be known. This is like what the news by newest got go to three so they're gonna take them to. And now they want Mike Conley up the flag policy, what his thirty one year old self with enormous contract. We'll, we'll track you Bob this hot fire today for Bob Ryan. But you're saying it out. Loud, though, Plachy. They didn't need to say this tipping their hand in a way. No, they didn't Bob you say and they didn't need to run my flagpole that really increases trade value. That's certainly does one of the least fake it phony for a little while to maybe help give more from my colleague trade sarahspain. How about you? We don't even know if they're lying right? Because it's line season. So they could be doing this to try to see what people say and how they react to that doesn't make any sense to just lay out your plan when you could be taking possible trade offers or letting people think you're taking our J, instead, so it, I don't know, if I'm buying that we should be buying this yet. I'm fine with it. I think it tells us a lot about where Memphis is an organization right now. Right. Because they wouldn't get a massive turn for the pick. Unlike Zion, they may be able to get, you know, like a mid level veteran or something, but they're trying to go young. They are building around job and Jackson, I think that's their plan. They're sticking to it butter still three. We're gonna talk, some boxing anyway, Chevy the world. Welder. With this one, and I'm not planning on the life. Is on the line, with they know what that sounds like what is this is a sport. Isn't that a book? We're not asking each other that he faced with going on phone on demand. This is the oldest kill the man to get paid for it at the same time equal. So why not you wilder? I with max and then with a scrum right there, talking about fighting for his right to legally kill a man bills should boxing, feel like that's good, promotion or not so good promotion for while Brazil Saturday night. Sadly, sadly, it's tremendous promotion, I hadn't even thought about this fight until I saw that everybody in boxing, can pretend it's a sweet science. But it's exactly what wilder said it is live with the fast with reality. It's a great promoters. I think boxing, probably thinks it's a great promotion in the moment. It is. But eventually all this is going to catch up to the sport because we are all very precariously balanced on the idea that this isn't about something that is incredibly damaging even when death is in present. So adding the level of actual death is only gonna make us get there fast. Uh-huh. I think seeing those quotes together actually diminishes violence of it, because it's so clearly premeditated. He's trying to be a show. Many wrote it out before, and it didn't just flip out. That's a result. It's kind of harmless road. Road. If he really believes what he said, and he really is kind of guy, he certainly has chosen the right sport to tell like say fourth of morality of boxing goes, it's been debated forever. It will always be debated. And, and this is going to change anything people don't. I go there, I'll go, there wilder also I won't point said if he dies, he dies, which we were discussing before and the commercial break. And when we were discussing this Miyako sarahspain, had no knowledge of what if he dies eat is where it was from what it was. I'm sorry guys, totally unfair, but are not making the showdown. If you have no knowledge of Yvan Drago, and rocky four I didn't know either Tony. I didn't know either less doing this as well. Our might be the only person that showdown. We gotta go for scoring correction in the break. We'll see you which showdown next. If you guys dies obviously a line from rocky four. Tonight. Juris wait, we we're not we're not been here from you guys. So that's the moment question that is tearing our old out apart deductions for times in Spain now, plus keys. Twenty seconds. Bob's taking another time out. He doesn't know I have run her show into the rocks. We're going to go back to what the scores were previously, which means oh, last time if I can change you can change we could all change on fade Ryan showdown. Let's go one telling about the Dallas Cowboys here, quote, I wanna be a cowboy forever. That's with that Prescott said and quote, I'm not concerned about contract. That's easy yield Elliot said, Sarah, who should be Dallas priority when it comes to signings. I mean, it's gotta be dot Prescott because he's in the last year of his deal, you've had a winning record every year with them to postseason bursts. You can deal with Zeke when you get him, he's got two years left. I don't want to disparage two-time rushing champion. But of course it has to be the young quarterback who gets better every year, and has had a measure success already is only going to get better, both agree, which makes me feel better that you two are in showdown will split the point. We'll move on showdown to the Nick heroes. We've seen this from him before. I wanna know where it all went wrong. Now bob. And if you remember any of his other rants how high on the curios meters this well, I love this. I love it. So much to night by toss. Yeah. I here's the thing now he's thirty sixth-ranked player in the world. And everybody knows he should be a lot higher. He just will not grow up. But where it all went wrong for him was when he started yelling at the crowd, where it went wrong for real is the guy was like here, giant tennis ball, will you sign this good time for this or inside one of the caverns is still then punch. All right. Bob Ryan you in the face on here. But you are out of timeouts no more time outs to get to the good stuff every Mr Ryan. Everybody knows that this is a wash in strikeouts in home runs. I to tell you something happened benway's this week income the Rockies in sixty innings of out of sixty outs over two games, including eleven inning. They stuck out forty times almost fifty percent of their plate appearances were strikeouts. Forty seven percents about her back, and yet they won a game in which they were spanned twenty four times. This folks is the modern baseball game like it hate it. Nobody has a cure for it. Scout strikeout strikeout. Something. It is boring. I was looking for some night defensive place. You can't get them up the ball. What that's baseball. I'm sorry baseball. We still keeping score of at all to time out. Folks on twenty three and a half hour break. We'll see them all around the horn. Blue.

"Whoa. Shot. Fred guy, still Israel Gutierrez. What he page in bracket. Bill clash bragging about how perfect bracket looks. You wanna know why everybody's gonna perfect bracket because you pick. No upsets, people can also Ross per it is honor his face. Number five three a certain number of times. What he's best. Being Graaf Beth bronk ever. How does this ball now going? How is it going also backing up a bit anybody calls a foul in the body year? Also, also, anybody anybody calling push off here and buddy calling the shorts here. I mean, there's so many places and Aubrey reductions has not been value. That's the game as well shoes. We need all everywhere to survives Bill Plachy. How did they do it? What can we all agree due to the loss game? They should have lost this. It should have been a losing team has all doc. What has dumped not go in? How does how does not win this game? And also, can we agree? This is a blueprint for how to be Duke Duke will lose the end of this tournament. Mark my words, it will lose because UCF figured it out. You make them shoot threes. You get back off trade Jones was one for eight from three point you've stack the middle against him making be into the worst three-point shooting team in the tournament. You make them beat them beach from the line of that you do the same thing defensively guy sold the wants to jump all over go in front good. Thanks bill. We we know that's how you beat them and UCF had their change of the referees down the stretch swallow, their whistle wartime. Come all on on the taco fall that why cauliflower that's to making contact, and you can make the case for a chart, but UCF has himself to blame up for the alleyoop that didn't work out. You got about that. You gotta get the rebound on the mid shot. And then the tap in at the buzzer. That's what made it heartbreak because they had the chance to win that game. It was in Israel with. Did you say on Wednesday's show? Was that Duke knows they can't hit threes. So it's ok well, they didn't really hit threes and breathing aside. Just to advance your go ahead Israel. Yeah. And frankly, this UCF team is a very unique team, obviously with taco fall, and and Aubrey Dawkins there you got the inside presence that can't really let Zion. Do his thing naturally. And yet he still, you know, had a big night. I think it's preparing them for the rest of the tournament. And no Bill do not agree that they should have lost this game. Because they did win the game zion's very difficult person or player to officiate. And I don't think that was an offensive foul there. I think there was a lot of things that they just sort of swallowed the whistle on. Yeah. I mean, it was one of those classic NCWA turn me games. It's the reason why it's so exciting. But in terms of showing dukes flaws, we've already seen it. And if another team does this they'll probably shoot it a little bit better. But you know. Okay. Big probably in the middle of Israel's answer right there. What he page. Yeah. Biblically speaking after people watch this game UCF and fell that they decided that this is time to cheer for Goliath. And that's exactly what happened if I hadn't thought I'd found out of this game. Guess what you would have won because he would have gotten rebounded. There would have been no put back he was playing exceptional defense throughout and say as Frank said if they make the four calls the officials that they were supposed to UCF wins the game. But here's what ended up happening. They showed the dukes did that they were resilient overcome. Dukes Plaski, please back in. Yeah. Yeah. No. I think the bottom line is Duke is really asked them either one Mantilla sign Williams's only got they can count on. He took over at the end. You stop him. You're breaking all you want to. Cam reddish is the one that hit the three when they were down for them RJ Barrett that had the put back which gave them leave for good to me. There are two plays in this game from a strategy standpoint. They could've foul Dianne Williamson dribbling the ball with Duke down three with just thirty less than twenty seconds ago. Then if you're taco fall either foul, do not let him shoot or just say am here. Put on a highlight dunk the ball you dumped it we'll still have the ball and the lead by one. They did the worst thing a couple quick hits. Here. Three words are fewer, even if you want who are you rooting for your soul is who are you rooting for? Duke one hundred page there. Yeah. I have to win the national cable bracket aside. Nobody cares about your Haracic racking. I wanted the other team. Okay. All right. Plaski of a you are screaming for use. So layman for him come on come on taco fall in Aubrey. And you always root for the a man in turtlenecks not screaming for anything. I can't believe you right out. If you've got elbow patches. You're for NPR right now. Or if you're the killer from good Villers? All right. Also on the taco fall. I mean Zion. Verse taco really was something it wasn't that much of a mismatch. Or maybe not even could be a pro Frank. Is there a place for player seven six and that type of game like taco in the NBA right now? Of course, we know that the NBA has changed can shoot three pointers. Probably not maybe develop into that. Look at Boven on Philadelphia. There's a big guy that can come off the bench you could block shots for for a guy that size. He moves pretty well. He will find real how about you. He moves pretty well. But you're still saying for a guy that size. He does not move, especially well when the games a little bit more wide open in the NBA, obviously, he's going to have more trouble. But there is a place. He's been credibly impressed by the most stunning thing about it. Very like still not as heavy as an Williamson is got him twenty pounds at least on the list. Wait stunning. All right. I'll say one more thing can. We say if Duke wins at all like what he has on his bracket. Maybe UCF can claim a piece of the title. All right. Oh, I saw you. What you did there? You know what? Now that you guys like it. Now, I realized it wasn't that good of a line. We'll move on Tennessee Iowa was the other game. I want to talk about at least for having some Nadan. It's right. Tennessee was blown them out that needed overtime to hang on and address goldfield SEC player. He told coaches to take him out of the game for Kyle Alexander Scofield's, set himself, the whole tea and Tennessee one vice six how do you read that when he pays? Well, people talk about well, what was the locker room like how about the hotel room because they're roommates. And he actually it said, I will my roommate to be in there. I think it'd be more effective than I was in the second half. He's go fill comes out gets seventeen points. Only makes one basket and say, I was very unselfish. I think the Admiral could be secretary of the navy after that decision. I I believe the difference in the overtime because all the other players bonded and said that he's playing for the team. And that's what Israel how do you think it's received in the locker room? Yeah. I mean is your second leading score. And I think he's somebody that you obviously rely on. But they're pretty they're well rounded team, and it's not necessary to have him on there. I think if he is the guy that you are going to a regular basis down the stretch, then he takes himself out. Then you wonder if it's sort of a mental issue that he's sort of a little bit frail. But in this situation, it just seemed right? I don't necessarily agree with him saying, I couldn't really play the way. I wanted to with four fouls because if you just foul out, then it's the same thing as taking yourself out of the game. So I don't really believe that. But I do think if it's taken well with with his teammates. I don't think it was question of character question of mental ability, or whatever, I think he was good thing. I disagree with you. I think circumstances everything to do with the fact that he had four thousand. That's why he said, you know, what I can't guard the way I feel I need to on the weakness, but I will say this. I think he got little the hook. By the fact, that they won the game 'cause reports and the player would have gotten killed that they had blown that twenty five point lead. And then loss and overtime. That would have been a hard one to come back and flash if this were the NBA we'd be killing kid. But right now, I think it's a good move for him team may call Alexandra even said thank you for fighting for me this brought the team together. He was smart. He he said he couldn't play like one of the play. He did the right thing. Good. I don't know why anybody would be killing him NBA or college. Oh because gonna pay he's like he's like mine coach. It was right there. They lost a twenty five point lead with him on the floor. Is anybody think that they can't go on right here? Maybe they wanna take a back seat. I could bring in Ramona Shelburne or Georgia Daniels leading bracket right now does anybody wanna wanna sit for the for the fourth quarter rally for long, he's not leading those two games, which were great games, or at least finishes in the Tennessee. I will. Those two games aside. We got Marsh MC. Miss the Sweet Sixteen with four one four four three two four eight five and one tiny Nike university as your Cinderella. Every favorite won every round two game average margin in the forty eight games fourteen and a half largest in twenty years. So does that make for bed tournament? Frank. It hasn't been great. I think the Duke UCF game certainly safe things. But I look at Florida state the way that they've played they're kind of like the forgotten ACC school. They were terrific then give North Carolina credit and that guard Kobe white he was tremendous Carolina had to play small. They don't like to play that way. And they still ran Washington out of the gym and out rebounded them. They've Carolina been the best looking team for you. So far Frank. Absolutely. And I picked them the win. So oh, that's great for you. Gotta turtleneck on Cody eras. How about you can answer? Both question. Does it make for a bad tournament that it's all favorites? And who's look best so far? Well, I mean, I think what you want in those first couple of days. Those first couple of rounds is just the great endings. It doesn't have to be Cinderella. Although that sort of creates a story lines for the second weekend. But we haven't really had a ton of those. I do think the Duke game save that gave us plenty to talk about. I like Virginia getting over that hurdle, which is the first half against the sixteen and just really rallying. And just sorta together if there's a team that has a style in a way to win it's them. So oh, wow. That's intriguing from Gutierrez and what he page. How about you? I would take a bigger view. I think it's the SEC people talk to the big ten in the ACC. But you've got all bird talking about somebody. That's looking good. Bruce, Pearl has gotten the Tigers and Charles Barkley very excited about this. We saw Tennissee Kentucky and Elche. No, you love his brag. If he goes your brackets doing great. But I mean, all the favorites winning and around two is that a good thing is a bad thing. The TV ratings the TV ratings are huge. We got big match ups coming up people say they like Cinderella's, but the liked to watch goliaths and Gonzaga has been the biggest glass so far for me. They handle their business. They haven't broken a sweat, Gonzaga. I'm standing by my pick who's gonna win it all one more thing. No sister, Jean job Marantz triple-double having early in the and by the way, Sabrina UNESCO. Approves of it. She does in her sweet Jay Williams said John game could translate veteran the NBA Zion. Could be true Israel. It could hurriedly. He's got to be more sort of transferable game right now from college to pros. He's such a smart player. And he this is like in that first round game. He didn't even need to score. He was just going out there drawn the defense and kicking it out to open guys the entire time and getting sixteen there. So I think that translates obviously, the athleticism translate. I think Zion needs to learn the tricks of the trade if you will. And eventually if he does that he will -absolutely Sola. Florida state really shut him down in terms of him becoming a big story in this. He was outstanding. It's Marquette but market did have some bad results down the stretch and guard dominated league. He definitely is gonna make a Eugene packed especially the passing ability. But if you're gonna tell me is going to be healthy throughout his NBA career. I'm taking okay. But if you let's say a team in your local region Frank with the number one pick any pause on Zion here for rent. I think they're taking ion Williamson all the way. Maybe Phoenix doesn't Bill. Same question for you. Because I think feet Phoenix has got to take John Maranatha resign Williams the way he played easy. He's a much where he's not. He won't be the great business. He won't be the great sales job that Williams will be he'll be a better basketball player this terminal. But a lot of is twenty and ten the first to do that nineteen Eighty-four, you know, those those numbers in tournament. I think he's got absolute number one potentially page. It's with a question. I wonder about those two panelists that just talked if they really would try to push their teams that they cover in depicting for Zion. Not a chance in the world it so nobody that Brant number one because they once I out because of the market. Page seventeen. I sold the seventeen and sixteen fourteen take a break right here to commercial breaks as Mr. MPR TBS, their Franken stolen with no commercial Homer, say back. Well, you're right on. Back to around the horn. Brought to you by chase coming to you from the seaport district here. Seventeen. We start with the gronk retirement. And there will never be another one. We lost our only from the game through the spike to the mardi partying to the sensual voice. Telling lesser human not to eat tide pods. One. Will you remember most Bill, and where is he in the list of greatest tight ends ever? Can he'd be number one which is about eight half season played? I think a lot of people were women as the human face of the patriots. Robotic patriots was being over there endeared people in. But I think that doesn't overlook the fact that he is the best hide in every ranks third. Among tight ends in receiving touchdowns. The hunt Antonio gates twenty dollars. But he's the best tight in ever the playoffs by far is numbers. He's the best big game tied at ever fest title page. I prefer calling the MVP t most valuable tied in we've ever seen the game. I loved Ozzie Newsome. But in regard to how you remember him. He had fun playing football. It actually was the National League for him. He never deviated from that personality, and he helped the patriots with yours. Yeah. I'll always remember him. As just the perfect like frat, jock meathead athlete who did it and didn't embarrass themselves somehow doing it. We mentioned before the show is associated with sex act. And then you've got him in there with with Bill. Bella check in the strait laced patriots and still find a way to himself. I think I'll remember more of that than his actual negotia. Goso? Came back from some major injuries as well. Let's let's not forget that the last active. He made set up the winning score in the Super Bowl. So he goes outta champion. I think he's gonna go down as greatest ever. I do look at you know, Ozzie Newsome Kellen Winslow Tony Gonzalez, even Dave casper from way got on think he's wanted for me. I'm putting on and get an answer on greatest of all time tight end. I don't think. So I mean, he would have been if he played longer maybe, but just giving the longevity. I think he's the most talented maybe, but I wouldn't say that the best career. His departure affect the patriots Plachy wanna try answering them one. I know this ounce crazy because I say he's the best tight at ever. But the patriots are the best football team ever. And they will survive without all retirements on that team. That will hurt them would be Bella check. Really, okay. After everything you just said, oh, he's the greatest very replace hell, but I'm telling you I'm saying that page Billiton's are coming for them. And I think it is going to have a great effect on. He was uncomfortable. He actually caught to pass led to the victory in the last bowl Israel. But they won't I think Tom Brady needs security blanket more now than ever. And so he doesn't really have one. So they're going to have to replace them. Whether it be a wide receiver or another tight end. I think it will affect I sold. Tony I'll contradict myself as well. They did win Super Bowl. So you guys. Yeah. I'll keep somehow it'll greatest ever patriots will be fine without him. Rose to say the patriots needed who come back. That's always out there as well. You could pull the Jason Witten. Maybe all right security blanket overlook awaited blanket, those are pretty good fire sale to four hammering the Mets listen to this. Pitcher baseball. They should all just pay the already we're going to Sarasota and then to Syracuse. And then we're not going to New York. You'd think we'd go New York. I don't know whose idea that was. It's not a smart one. All right. Let's make this afternoon talk show Radio New York. Frank Sesa Syndergaard on everything go. I don't agree with them. Going up to. You've been in Florida for two months. It's for marketing. That's where your mind league team is it's a quick in and out. It's a workout. What's the what's the big deal? Yeah. Baseball wonders watts image problem. Go to Syracuse sell the game. How hard is it again spring training? You've been playing golf for months. Get over it page Bill you go to Cirque use it sell this show. He does what I. Died what he said and he's defending his teammate. He's talking about not his own contract. But he deserves it. So I I like we said you take three hour bus ride port Saint Lucie. I've done so. Thirty two guys take them you. It's not the greatest of looks for this Mets, and they're seasoned. Right. I mean, they're talking east talking openly about criticisms of these decision makers and everything else. I just don't like that. He saying it publicly like this. It's not that big of a deal to create sort of this. You know? I love when people have real. Say you don't like when guys actually talk when they as question. What do you guys? Frank cessna. Where were you the points where there for you? But now you what do you worry? You're not back. All right. All right. I still gonna break plans through out the year is to win one. Maximum security areas. Shoda derby leads game winning walk off mood raking at fort buzzer-beaters. Bill this good with this. Great. Or is this just a little too weird for your nation? Just tremendous that the weird part was Siachen was guarding him. What's the guy doing guarding him at mid court lie? It's unbelievable. So the tremendous shot from how's that for a reward? Ceac played great defense in that entire possession. Cat a great shot that he wanted to an it falls. And I just love that. This is the classic way to celebrate. Or to deal with one of those laws. Surrender calling please, please the dreaded as it is the surrender Cobra Kemba Walker next time you watch that Kim was walk walking away. The Jek didn't even see the shot ball. We'll move on. That was the best shot of Mark. Now, the worst ten seconds of Marci wizards stop flopping role here, the Thomas Bryant affair in order ranch them on the scale of worse to worst Israel. I mean, the rolling is ridiculous. The rolling should get you a second technical in an injection because you're just mocking the whole situation, but even just slapping the ball out of Kelly Lennox hands after the whistle is unnecessary. Is that a backward violation? Didn't he ruled himself over and back? So he should've gotten not only two technical fouls losses. That's all. Got jokes jokes saved them up. Now chase anything you want. At least one Israel TR is thirty seconds of faith. Man. Oh, man. I keep trying to wait for the time at the Boston Celtics are going to turn it around. And if you have any faith in them flipping the switch, I don't know what you're drinking because they haven't been doing it all year. It's always something. And now after their last loss to the Spurs projecting confidence saying, hey, I'm preparing for the playoffs. I like what we've got going. We've got some injuries note. This team has been a disaster all season, and it will continue to do. So in the playoffs unless we see some sort of change here.

Your Weather Forecast Update: Warmer Climate Will Be The New 'Normal'

"There is a change coming to your local weather forecast next month. The data that it's based on will be updated that will make the warmer climate literally. The new normal here's npr's jennifer. Ludden weather forecasters work off a thirty year average and it gets updated every decade right now. What's normal for temperature and precipitation is based on nineteen eighty one to two thousand ten. That's why we've all gotten used to this. Well temperatures for your friday. We'll be running about ten degrees than normal seven degrees above average yesterday. Look into tomorrow above. Normal temperatures will the past decade. Was one of the hottest on record mike. Pilecki of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration says that will show up in the new averages called climate normals. They'll drop the eighties and wrap in the twenty tens. It was a very substantial upward trend in temperatures especially along the west coast of south and along the east coast. He says there were exceptions. Oh you could go to fargo north dakota. That would be a place where it's actually cooled a little bit if that's your interest especially in the springtime but the fastest warming places. We'll see a real bump up in their averages. Amber sellin is chief. Meteorologist at abc fifteen phoenix. Where she says last summer was incredibly hot. We set a record of fifty three days at one hundred. Ten degrees or hotter. The previous record was thirty three days so it wasn't even close what's more she says. In the entire past decade phoenix did not said a single record for low temperature. Now oddly after the update in may some really hot days or nights could become officially cooler than the new normal sullivan's plans to take more time to explain all this. We're going to have to remind people especially this year. Hey if we're at one fifteen. That is five degrees above the average but remember this average has changed. This average is not what it used to be. That's important says bernadette. Woods plachy chief meteorologist with the nonprofit climate central. She says research shows people are really good simply resetting what feels normal and she sees danger in that were not aware of how much warming is happening on a regular basis. It's that slow grind. That's eating away at the changing normal. That doesn't give you the opportunity sometimes to sit back and look at what it used to be. Marshall shepherd heads atmospheric sciences at the university of georgia. He wonders if even using the term normal might be confusing and he agrees that for most the new weather. Averages will not impress when degree warming doesn't sound like a lot to most people. In fact many people say oh great. I can have cookouts in december more often but that steady warming has a big impact which he says meteorologist can help people understand. It helps fuel increasingly extreme weather. Wildfires floods hurricanes shepherd says other impacts are more subtle things like rising food prices declining water supply. the spread of vector borne. Disease is about things happening right. Now that are affecting their kitchen table issues their pocketbook their livelihoods and their health industries feel the impact to and for them. The official thirty year weather average is losing its relevance now is my policy says businesses want more recent data that reflects the risks. They face now. Energy companies to predict extreme heat and cold or take construction. They like to know. How many days does it rain during a certain period of time so they have a certain number of rain days that they build into their plans so for the first time this year. No noah will also put out fifteen year averages to help keep pace with a climate normal that just keeps changing jennifer ludden. Npr news washington.

USWNT Celebration!

"The all time record for most days celebration mode under sustained questionable levels of creation. Let's say you women's national team. An absolute Harris specifically have a shot at setting that record if they calibration fit for world talkers with our group of well our panel. We're talking mid level. That's we're asking is right now J._R.. Midland this parade rolex of various aggressive intense would ever decided to be as you would expect from this team. You can see all the equal pay a lawsuit as Harrison's. I G often the next step. Do what you have to do. Step outside yourself be more better D. bigger than you've ever been before four Sarah Spain. I loved your piece today on E._S._P._N.. Dot Com especially this part how this team stopped being aspirational and is now instructional. Can you please expound and described arrive. The moment we saw today yeah aspirational not just for kids which is what we usually talk about role models for kids but as a grown woman I'm watching them be unfiltered and unbothered by judgment. I'm watching them not care if the world is is judging them in any way they're using L._G._B._T._Q.. Swagger alongside athletes swagger. They're showing US how to play the game how to change the game. They're doing all the things that as women. We don't get to see that much like we see J._R.. Smith we see the capitals after Stanley Cup Win. Do something like this. It's not not just the game. It's the celebrating and owning of how great they are. That makes me think okay. I gotTa stop asking for for just a welcome to the party. I WANNA walk into the party. They're taking something that isn't necessarily even offered to them. In terms of spotlight while so many other things are sort sort of working against them. They're walking right through all those obstacles and just saying we're going to take it. We're going to be on top of the sports world in ways. We don't get to see that much with women and it's just also we were talking about this earlier the equal patients I was somewhere in that sea of people I heard equal pay more than I heard anything else at today's parade Saturday you want to address that it's complicated right. It's about how much money they give based on the World Cup earnings it's based on so many things but the conversation is going to be had and that's what matters and because they're unified unified in a group and demanding it which is what we saw before from the ninety nine team which is what we saw from the U._S.. Women's hockey team that unification is really the thing that's GonNa make the change and so as all the money that they are making right now for U._S.. Soccer Federation when it comes down to money you can't can't look at anything other than hard numbers and they're bringing that additionally the business right the business we saw adidas put a bonus money. We saw Luna Bar. Put a bonus as well. All those monies are complicated and we can get into that in a bit some cash bring you in here did your thoughts on this parade today and his team and how they are taking the next steps after this World Cup well they really are taking the next step and I loved a couple of things about Megara Pinos speech one. She's knowledge acknowledged. She's been both the victim and perpetrator for traders drives us all a little bit crazy and she kind of laughed about it but more importantly she said we need to love more hate last. Listen more talk less and with the exception of the talk last component on this show she's right about all that we all need to be doing those yet and when it comes to the equal pay element it should be not just is the women's soccer team going to get where they need to be. We all know equal pay for women across the board and all kinds of situations equal pay for minorities all of that stuff can. N._B._A. addressed by them because the conversation has begun. Can we flesh out that a little bit more page. I'll turn to you I mean there's been multiple conversations happening here and I guess it's important to to fix on one thing. That's talking about U._S.. Soccer Soccer Federation men's the team women's team what the pay is the numbers are all over the place then you hear about the global game and of course men are making more women are making a higher percentage of what the World Cups. I see your face right now what he paid you want to address that well in regard hard equal pay obviously that should happen as Tim said in both not only soccer but in terms of the entire country and the workforce that exist here but I I want to enjoy in entertain this moment and I think it reminds Hides Muir thirty nine years ago with the nineteen eighty miracle on ice hockey team at how that continued how that grew the sport how those players were able to be appreciated to stay and I think this this for example that we're seeing is going to continue in. It's not only going to affect women's soccer in this country. I think it's going to affect high school soccer and junior hockey of junior soccer. I just think it's going to have a profound result in effect not only on unequal pay on the sport of soccer and just basically a what's going on if you heard that speech the talk this morning that what's going on in this country keep telling people in Seren. I talked about this on a podcast that just speech civil and we're seeing disability may be being exposed by what they've accomplished. Bill plans for your thoughts. Yeah has any social justice speech ever been more relatable as any team ever been more relatable in in this area I mean with with with the factors Latinos on the team and that's an issue that they that soccer needs to deal with economic issue. The team looks like most of America. It sounds like most American acts like most of America and they celebrate the love. The celebration celebrations have been better better than the games were exciting into games because we're so human. I mean you know they're getting drunk. They're cursing their dancing poorly. They're shouting. They're underpaid. Everyone can relate to them and you're taking advantage of this moment. I'm so happy that that that they've turned this into a cry for social equity and social general in this country. It's so wonderful wonderful bookmark right now in the pay. I WanNa talk about that Social Equity and Sarah addresses to you in her thoughts at the podium today we heard from Megara Pino talking about listening and then of course if you WANNA see one way she's been very vocal in the past and you could say you should listen more Megara Pino or we're talking about. Civility and people can say well the words you used before saying you weren't going. The White House weren't so civil as other. How do you consider all I'll bet will well? She apologized for some words. I'm not sure which ones I will say that the only problem with trying to do a both sides on some issues is that one side occasionally is pushing for love and equality and justice and and all the good things things and the other side so often is trying to shout people down for asking for basic rights and I know that you can always look at someone like Meghan repeal and say you should listen. It's hard to someone who hates the very substance of who you are as they should listen to you for trying to explain your own humanity Tim. I just think it is important the whole part about listening no matter which side you're on none of us are very good at it. All of us are entrenched with our feelings on every issue. Listening is the key to every flashy democracies Missy S._C.. Standing up for who you are as messy I think I think I certainly can give them a pass for all that because this is how the process works this is how they relate in embraced by all of them everybody page our listen to this so I think that really you don't bring yourself. Off Down to the level of people that you're talking about and we're in this regard. I think that she did make a mistake by lower yourself to what her critics were saying. Thanks for your thoughts on that. Guys will have some more thoughts. That's a maybe post Megara Pinos full comments online today as well. We'll move on now for M._B._A.. News of the day why Leonard's clippers contract real years one hundred and three million maximum and the option here player option in the third third season bill those numbers in years change your view of his deal the risk the clippers are maybe taking. Maybe the risk wise picky. I was startled when I saw the numbers but you think about it. No really didn't change. I view the deal. It's a deal the clippers had to make take the bigger issue here is they're trying to get an arena built down the Inglewood and the whole process is going to be a full ramped up the next couple of years. They need to win now. They need to make sure the Lakers. Don't swallow him up now. They need to make their mark on L. A. and the N._B._A.. Now they have two years here's to do it. It's a risk they. They traded away everything for it. It's a risk they had the clippers had to take a page well. I do think it changed everything bill when you look at it in two thousand and twenty one those two players Jordan Leonard will be in positions to get fifty million dollars a year. We're talking about taking another step in the N._B._A.. Just a couple years from now so yes you felt this was going to be a team that was going to be together for three or four years with those two players and it's going to be a sense of urgency urgency as you said. Maybe it's based on a radio. Maybe it's based on that. The owner wants to win so badly and surpass the Lakers who've done their own job during the all season but I think that the details the devil's in the details here we see that this is not long term contracts. This is a pretty short term and they better get it done in a hurry l.. Show I mean I think you have to look at it. A little differently. We already thought Oklahoma City did a great job getting pretty good players and five first round picks to get Paul George there and now to know that it's a two year rental yeah. Both these guys are guys and both of them should you would think want to stay in L. A.. But can anybody say for sure what Kawhi Leonard or Paul George going to be thinking thinking in two years. I'm interested to see which teams are taking and clearing salary cap room two years to try to make room for those two believing they can get them out of Los Spain yeah. It's a star driven league and that's what we know like you can build all oh you want if you don't get one of those top players on your team multiple of those top players on your team. You're not going to contend so rather than putting in the work to gradually grow and build which is what the clippers have done now now they hit on the big names and that urgency is important not just because of the deal book deal don't really matter anymore. Anthony Davis says I want out and there's really no option and leverage for the team. He's out Paul. George just signed a four year Max and look. He's already out so this is the new N._B._A.. And it's unfortunate for teams that are trying to build and play a long plan but if you're the clippers you needed to get them and now that you have you need to win now to keep them. It doesn't seem that different than anywhere else slashing his love about the N._B._A.. The minute news breaks morning. Already people are saying wait. A minute two years Lebron has got two years but you know what the moment that's going to be banned. Words cannot bring up the Lakers right heard this on the program Niger Rink. There is no future of the it's always right now and I think that's that's that's what we're seeing with all these deals and all the player power. We'll be back by selling warnings brought.

All Star ratings up twenty seven percent so baseball frolicking in that also this week Burland Chin music about the juice ball players hourly talking about Labor. We're unrest players association talking about how the League doesn't market stars Bill plachy. Was this week a win or a loss for Major League Baseball Big Win for baseball the drama the home run Derby they had a conspiracy theory with the balls and introduced American a bunch of the new stars Rauluni Junior Junior Pete Alonzo Great Week for baseball conspiracy theory good thing for baseball. Is that what you're saying okay. What did you do it gets people talking gets people? I'm getting you silence right now right it was it was a major league twin. I mean talk about marketing. They were able to market themselves those junk players. They had a great hitting display at the home run. Derby did a great pitching game last night. That actually was on pace. He was less than three hours the entire weekend and let the young people play and that's exactly what they did. Let the young people play this was a win. This was a low scoring win with a lot of strikeouts first of all the Homerun Derby is still way too long and once again the best hitter doesn't win it just like Josh Hamilton didn't Oh yeah here. We go all right Yep Vlad Guerrero win because he's Outta gas by the last night sixteen strikeouts for the American League Great Pitching Beats Grading. We already knew that Sarah Spain yeah I agree. We're talking about it and that's what baseball needs the most. We're talking about the young players. We're talking about the guys homerun Derby the one million dollar prize was great for guys that are making about five hundred K. at gave them more incentive. We're talking about whatever's on Jock Peterson's next conspiracy theories C._B._A.. We're talking about all aspects baseball and it's such a regional talking about the good thing. I didn't realize this but you know your your mic layers or a on this. Do you think this can happen no real talent show no no no. I don't want her to real gay but it's fun to have all the Astros talking to Sarah Spain yeah. This is such a great thing for baseball. You can't do it in the regular games but in the moments that you do have personality coming forward that's when people fall in love with guys and decide that they want to invest in the. Tort beyond just live in the real not an interviewing not what they did with freemen while he's at the plate in a bowl coming. Tell the guy you have a mic on you. Don't curse and then you get you get those moments. Where's Steve Stay back or whatever whatever they're saying? That might be cool. We'll move up buy or sell to. I think it's pointless at the day to have rules that we can't enforce. I think it hurts the perception of integrity around the League people say well you have that rule so and it's obviously teams aren't fully complying. So why do you have it what he would. He buy sell from silver yesterday. I'm selling most of his conversation. He identifies a problem that he doesn't offer any solutions. If you think it is such a detriment detriment to the N._B._A.. Call a summit of the players and coaches and administrators and try to figure it out but as far as I'm concerned it's like Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid. There are no rules in a knife fight. There no rules in the N._B._A.. Anymore in regard R._J._R.. People go to treat each other toward Calcutta movement. I find that the commissioner has caused the worried but I'm not sure he's worried about the right things. When I say this? The players make too much money. That's not an old man saying the players make too much money. It's they make so how much money the bird rights doesn't that whole thing doesn't work anymore. They don't care if I make forty million a year. If I stay I make thirty five year. If I go somewhere else thirty five is okay yeah I mean it's monopoly money at this point right when Kawhi Leonard is a hundred and ten million dollars less than what he would have gotten if he'd taken that Max deal from the Spurs one hundred million less. I think he's kind of worried about this because the integrity is an issue at the same time. I think he's enjoying how impressive the N._B._A.. Takeover of the off season because we're all talking about it. We're talking about our job. It's all about it bill plans you have. Let's just cut to the chase. Let's start free agency the minute the N._B._A.. Finals ends that's all have no the rules. Don't work having a World League is great because players are so empowered. Let him be related to mark Morris Right. Can we talk about that really stick with the Spurs which was reported. He verbally agreed to really pull out and go to the Knicks which reported a possibility. What would that mean? Would that be improper. Tim Keller Show. Do you want to weigh in here. Well the best for the Spurs. They made roster moves into trade thinking that he was coming in now now. Maybe he's got this. This is an example players. Having power could be too much Sarahspain. Yeah I mean this is a tough one. If it's not actually written down to the spurs be making those moves until they've guaranteed that he's coming maybe not but at the same time I love player empowerment we also have to let teams bills and it's tough to build if guys can renege on contracts and get out of their contracts surveys showed that sweet there from Jared Weiss athletic saying this is somebody backing out in the contract like this should be suspended defense. A one year suspension. I think is what he wrote there. How do you hear that you know I hear that a silly? He didn't sign a contract attractive. I should've known a player like this. Maybe changes mind and again. Look at what happened to Jordan the Mavericks so mad at him. They resigned them a couple of years later and so you know teams have to get used to this. This is where the N._B._A.. After everything you said about empowerment and integrity what where are you on that if player were to break a verbal agreement as a Hollywood bogel said oral agreement is not worth the paper it's written on. He didn't sign anything new should be. I mean everybody on this program. Everybody watching this program has changed their minds at one point in their lives and if they didn't sigh you can get out of it. You Are Godfather here and somehow some way the young man's.

I don't like the twirling idea. How about a laser light? I'm not sure I like what's going on here. Tony already burdened by so many stoppages to look at oh.

The Mullens Revolution

Around the Horn

The Mullens Revolution

"Bill flash ski what he paid Sarah Spain and Kevin Blackstone for the last time in this reality today. Little matter of how far LSU dick Nolan's fescue being forty Niners history or best QB ever ever. Speaking of goat's Brady, verse Rogers, and really speaking of goat's Simone, biles doing the single greatest athletic achievement in the history of sport. One last time without be mentioned a reality. Let's go around the horn. Are you guys ready money today? This show better. Here's Tony really we start with the Nick Mullins revolution. It was televised to sixty three passer rating over one fifty so good. Last night is Twitter account was Berith mid gate Kyle Shanahan, and you'll never know until you see someone that is incredible advice. That is incredible life advice fake that people and have a good weekend. The six most exciting version sports going forward CD better. Nick Mones QB controversy. Also, the raiders, Sarah. Let me ask you. This was moans that good over the raiders. I don't wanna take anything away from him because you could put up a bunch of guys and have their first NFL start not result in at one fifty one point nine passer rating the game he put together that being said he was only pressured on four of twenty two dropbacks any only through zero passes and debate windows, meaning that raiders defense stinks. He still stepped up its. It's still an amazing story. But he was certainly not facing the most terrifying of opponents last night. Devon, black stone out of your view moans. Not only was it. Not the most terrifying. It was actually the most terrible passed in the NFL. They lead the league in allowed yards per attempt, which means nobody's ever around anybody that they're supposed to be covering their twenty ninth and touchdown surrendered through the air. So what you saw last night was par for the course with the raiders pass defense. So give credit to Mullins for hitting his open targets. But unfortunately, have to give them an Asterix because of who was playing against Bill Plachy. Yeah. I really so much want to give credit to this guy. What is so such a great story? You see him crying after the game? Do the stories about him credit working out piping? He was calling. Yeah. You know? But it's the raiders. And they didn't even you're saying. Satistics the easiest a life or quarterback in any game this season in differ for the entire league. So I just don't see how anything statistically Friday is the easiest show to score points at around the horn. And you don't see me raining on your parade. Nobody page you have more Friday wins than anybody in around the history. Should we put an asterisk on? All those no not at all. And I don't want take you away from him. And then you took stuff away. We got to Bill punishment going no fit spot that made you about defense. Oh, by let me talk about Molin does the only only panelists here who's ever been to Hattiesburg, Mississippi and covered games for Mississippi. Southern I'll tell you that his. I'm talking here. All Brett farve records of sippy southern. He said all the conference there to God does more preparation two years. He sits at home in the middle of crowd age and calls out Barcella plays. I think that if you're in canton, Ohio just all for show. He. That argument is getting to canton, Ohio in any way. If you're gonna say the names back to score you back. Let's go back. Let's go down a little bit. Thank you page. Woody. Let me ask you a question about this Jon Gruden he'd double down after the game on saying players are dying to play for the raiders that he's getting calls. How does that come off to you Sarah Spain? Well, I believe that's collusion. Right. If active players are calling and saying they will come to his team. But beyond that to me. I think I don't know that it's as much a shot as current players as just the reality that he's trying to create if everyone's talking about how terrible things are no cleaned. If everyone's talking about what a terrible job. He's doing. He needs to create another reality by putting out there. Many people are saying how great this team has many people are saying how much they wanna play for me. And he's gonna keep saying hoping that he can make it through. Okay. Let's not speak down on another reality right now when we're launching another reality Monday, that's prop that up a little bit Bill Plachy Nosair. Direct shot at his players. Instead of saying we have the answer here. We can figure it out here. He's saying other players from other teams are gonna come in and save us that really demeans everyone that locker room that's already dead already another tank tanking. Anyway, they all went out of there. I thought it was shameful that he said that and I thought of the fixes team. And again, this goes in the whole thing that Gruden clearly this is not working. He's like he was a great coach at one point. Maybe now he's just a TV star act like a coach, it's not working page. Woody. Thanks a lot. Check back Bill in into ninth year of his contract. Maybe he'll have this team turned around. I think we'll be around. I think people are calling him like me I could play there and people that are forty eight years old or calling him. And I think there are some players like Dez Bri the reach out 'cause they wanna play in Vegas in a couple of years. But why would he make something like that? Rain very hard on the players. He has there. This is a team that's in total disarray. But it's typical of what he was doing when he left the NFL is a coke love when you guys say total, disarray, like there's any other kind of disarray. Yes, disarray is total. They maybe the quote players are dying to play for. Maybe it's just dead players wanna play. We'll move on. Let's talk catty the question have you ever seen the number three team in the country? A two touchdown underdog at home. True story. Nixon was asked to be would kick a receive. And he said he hopes to kick ass. Woody what would LSU tomorrow to pull off the upset on Alabama? And if they do if they do what would it mean for college football? It'd be great because football they'd also jumped Clemson would be number one in the next poll and in in the national championship situation. But I think that in order to win you gotta take advantage of a Saturday night in Baton Rouge, anybody that's ever been with. No that that crowd with tiger cage. You don't wanna get anything close to either one of those? And Secondly, here's the got it survive the first half because they're going to miss their best defensive player white who was suspended for targeted. That's yet. Another stacked up again, they've got two first round draft picks in the secondary a, greedy and grant. And it's those guys can get interception our turnover, and and keep it close because I know this is not gonna make sense. But in the fourth quarter, Alabama being outscored this year. I know it's against four three players. In the fourth quarter as to even played in the fourth quarter. So when you're up sixty points, that's some place. You're never in this show. What he page. Maybe take you off the pedal. We'll bit sarahspain how about you. Yeah. Anybody says saying that is ignoring the fact that they're so far ahead in the fourth that they don't need to put their best players. And that's why they're being outscored more importantly what they need to do on offense is be patient with their run. Let the clock run down to keep their defense fresh and keep the ball out of his hands as much as possible. The one defensive issue of bama's been having been with past place to running back. So they need to push that and keep keep the clock running defensively. They're secondary is so good. They don't put a lot of pressure on teams. But they need to put pressure on to us. So they need to take some chances defensively actually press on that front frontline Kaby Alabama. Nick Sabin has played their games in death valley of all been pretty close. So to me that means what you need to do. In order to win is to create some turnovers. You gotta hope that that death valley crowd rattles tool a little bit. Maybe get a pick. Maybe you can. Flip the field. Maybe you can get a fumble recovery or something like that you need some sort of momentum. But the reason that is such a big discrepancy in this point differential from the odds makers because that's how good this Alabama team is unbelievable talent and the town. But it sounds like you're saying the games at LSU have always been close in this robbery. And maybe if you were putting something on this game would be leaning towards LSU pick. That not that brave. So how about you? How about you heaven you wouldn't take LSU in two touchdowns? I'll take LSU to win outright in this game. The waiting for somebody who won the race go round. They eighty four the last night seven games down there. They play tremendously at home to Alabama's only faced one defense in the top forty this year LSU is ranked seventh offensively I love, greedy Williams against two. And I love Joe borough in this situation and all the Alabama is has a little bit of we against the run. You can run against them. LSU run the ball control the clock off the field. Coach wins game. Go tigers. Okay. Clash she convince anybody hear what he paid sarahspain. No, no. I would just tell you savings been there five times. He's won four those games. But none of the hill have been over the over ten points. So. Kevin Kevin's hip to that. But it's okay. All right. Sarah. You're an absolute no, no else you in this game for you. They're not winning. All right. We'll move on NFL games in the week or two of them. Are just incredible Packers patriots. We'll talk about that one by herself. But we've got Rams and we've got seats. This is the one versus the two right now in the NFC undefeated team, and it's six one team, although everybody seeing Nick Mullins rear view mirror and getting a little panic leak may be catching up to the Rams or at least ask you. If you think that's the case three of the last four wins for LA been within a field goal Bill. We'll start with you who has advantage Sunday. And what is Rams have the advantage in the there already was stellar? They added Dante Fowler. They got a edge rusher. They needed their offense can be unstoppable. They've won big games on the road in places in Denver in Seattle. They can play in these conditions. There's better overall team in New Orleans. They have more weapons were ways to beat you. They got a coach that's all that's on the cutting edge. I'm taking a Rams filers plug in and play. And he's going to be good to go for. Yes. From the edge. Absolutely. What do you pay? I just don't understand Bill picking an LA team to win. You remember Bill? Good times. We've had a New Orleans, and you know, how long those to window every none of us. I want to hear more about that. What we're getting that going to commercial break. All right. Go ahead. The saints. The saints at home are invincible as far as I'm concerned, they rarely lose. They're they are number one. We know about girly. But the saints are number one. It gets run in the NFL this year. I got the best leading passer in the league this year. Drew brees. They've got a running game. They've got wide receivers. I think this is a bigger game to the saints because the Rams can lose. And you know, they've had three games to two and three they've won by. They're ready to lose on the road. Sarahspain? They are in fact, Vincent because they're ten and eleven and their last eleven at home. So that's not invincible. But that being said the reason part of the reason they've been so good is because drew Brees is getting unbelievable protection. He's only been sacked nine times this season, which is only more than last night in one game. But it's also one fewer than Aaron Donald sacks on the season. Which means that we might see some real pressure for. Drew brees. And I think until the Rams lose a game and actually full on lose a game. They will always be my favourite even in New Orleans. Give it absolutely. I mean, there's no evidence to suggest that the Rams would not win. This won't win this game. Bill pointed out, they have a better offense Bill went out. They have a better defense. And what no one point out is guess what they also have bettle better special teams top five in the league in that category right now, and they're playing what they world of confidence. And even if girly is taken out of the game somehow by by the same. They still have weapon. Okay. Speaking of a world of confidence. It sounds like the trip in Baton Rouge or New Orleans wherever you guys that pledge skied and paid shared in some confident moments. I wanna hear about this. We'll go to break here by yourself. Play for fifteen just get to the good stuff. Please go ahead and go what I hear about it. No. I can't I can't even begin to go. There. Don't remember. Neither. All right. We'll take a break your cellular side. So Bill I said put on a pair of my name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom my first experience with jewel. I do remember being like distance good. It's it's it's like a cigarette. But not I don't miss smoking. At all. Like, I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette. Asher lingering odor. Make the switch and J U L dot com slash sports. Warning. This product contains nicotine nicotine isn't addictive chemical. Packers patriots Sunday night Rogers Brady put. Electric. Show said unicorn talk leading this. Here's Tom Brady. Get you really this isn't the Super Bowl. This isn't a playoff. What he told Jim gray of Westwood One. Did say he was excited for this one. What do you buy or sell Brady downplaying the importance? Thanks for coming to be reality. Tony I am selling what he said. This is a critical game for the patriots for both teams. Obviously the Packers need to stay in touch in that division. And the patriots are chasing the chiefs. They might have to go to that playoff game in Kansas City. They may not get to the Super Bowl if they lose this game at home. This is an important regular season game. Because as what he mentioned the Packers are third in the NFC north right now it matters. Whether they win the game. But what doesn't matter. What happens between these two guys whether or not will affect how we see them. We're not going to change how we feel about Brady if he loses it doesn't take waive his brings and we're not going to change how we feel about Rogers. Could we're always gonna blame the team and coach around him for what he doesn't win. It's just a fun game to watch. This is truthful arrogance coming from Tom Brady, look he plays to go to Super Bowls Aaron Rodgers trying to get the Packers back into the playoffs for the first time in a couple of season. So he's absolutely right. That this is neither a Super Bowl nor a playoff. Yeah. Just Brady being smart. He doesn't want the attention on him or the team. He wants to call me, the low-key, and yours is going to be crazy enough as it is. This is why he gets the super bowl's 'cause he doesn't treat every game. Yoed out make a pick for the game. Will you got backers? Patriots. That's inanimate for four. All right. We'll move on by herself. Two. Got a motor the Bob. Firecracker? Magic Johnson was calling Luke Walton into his office following the Lakers win this two game road trip. Magic reportedly admonished Walton in an aggressive tone over the team sluggish start painting a picture of rising pressure on Walton latchkey. This is your cat by herself pressure mouthing on Luke Walton, I'm buying it. It feels like the end is coming near it. Just feels like Luke never really had a chance. He wasn't magic guy. He wasn't LeBron's guy. Jeanie Buss supports in. But she pretty much get your franchise LeBron now LeBron's working in conjunction with this. And I think he deserves the chance he has. They were sixteen sixteen at the end of last year. He was bringing young players along it's hard to adjust with LeBron James team is hard to figure out where who knows where? But I don't think he's got shot. What do you think the time line is here? What are we looking at your how much time I have? If this pressure is the Lakers fired both Mike Brown and Del Harris really early in the season. They're not afraid to do. It could come at any time. Come anytime who come this weekend? Yeah. I don't think this weekend. But he could come. It could come before thanksgiving. What he paid makes no sense. I'm celebrate the guy has great roots. As in his basketball career is family and coaching with the warriors. And you're gonna give him a full chance because you didn't hive what are they gonna do out there? Bill. Bring back the high chair, Phil Johnston grand. Who you gonna get this better than him with young players? I lou. I don't know what he's arguing with since Bill said, he doesn't agree. I. He's dealing with suspensions. Injuries a player who has traditionally when joining a new team taken a long time for that team to adjust to his presence. He's shuffling lineups. Because he's trying to figure out the older veterans or the younger guys who fits the best. He's doing what he needs to do to try to figure out this team, the problem as Bill said, it's even if we don't agree with an even if it doesn't make sense it. Sure seems like he's nobody's guy and most notably LeBron. So they're gonna go find the Bronx guy caving the long jetty for Luke Walton was shortened as soon as LeBron James changed addresses in welled up Laker Ville, and we all know that. So the fact that Magic Johnson with call him in and dress down or pro or suggest to him what you should be doing with the team is just really. Lou is a possibility or any other names anyone wanna say magic city come out and try to coach Steve and you wanna see that. So I just want to keep it's Laker land. Not Laker Bill. How are you? Move on by herself three. And this is a story that strikes credibly closed home to me Simone biles the goats we knew this ready, but her fourth world championship in the all around by margin that she'd never won by before. That's how big it was. And she did it after two goals, but while dealing with eight kidney stone Kaby you put this in the annals of history with Jordan, flew game Willis re coming back. It's one thing to have be sick in the stomach and have to do something or limp out onto a court for a couple of minutes and make one bucket. It's another thing to perform at a at a international high level with kidney stones, and you can't make this is unbelievable lashing. The most horrific words to use in a sense with kidney stones are vault balance beam. Yes. How does she do it? Which is worse hanging out with Blackstone having kidney stone at the world jokes. Fouled is got vault named for her. She didn't pull it all. But she has to do a half pipe physician somersault thing it'll be a mute sarahspain. Please save what he wanted to see where he was going with that. She hasn't lost a competition. She entered since twenty thirteen she's the most decorated gymnasts in history. She's only ever to win for worlds, and she did it this time despite falling and having kidney stones because she's that much better than anybody else. There's nothing to say about. Radio's instead of photos I had the right to the postage with row the word around for fun about LeBron or about Jordan or about Brady Rogers or Woody, and it's Simone byles head. It's Katy Decky at Serena Williams, and it's a whole lot of nobody you same bold navy and felt those people never lost any of their competitions. What he page. You wanna see where you're going with this? You're going to show well built flashing sarahspain showed up next. Tuck -nology truth brought to you by cold. Truth teenagers, can communicate entirely emojis. How my birthday party pizza slice kitten soccer ball pineapple truth. It's so easy to switch him. Save on car insurance at geiko dot com. Why are you talking about paper clips shoulder shrug high five wizard hat, what Goco fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more? Basque's sarahspain good look in huge second mental kings, one forty six last night Darren box with a thirty three minute triple double and they're six three. So young so fun so full of potential you remember when you were described like that Bill. Yeah. Yesterday. Tremendous. I think we ought to celebrate the kings while we can their fifteenth and defense fourteenth offense, go kings. Yeah. I think while we can't is the operative word because fourteenth and fifteen you know, the right around the middle. They're not a fantastic team. And they're probably going to sink in a great west. Let's enjoy Molly. Can I just like plaschke's embracing team the king while he thought he was going to be doing with the Lakers with the Sacramento Kings point for that Bill? Let's move on showed out number two. Montreal Canadian score two goals in two seconds left in the capital. This is N H L record. The second one was an empty netter. Helen, Preston, you, Sarah, I'm incredibly impressed. This is a record. That will never be beaten. You can't score two goals in fewer than two seconds. So this is a forever record. It's an empty net. Nobody was guarding the net. It's an empty net. They descended down the ice. I'm not that impressed. Empty records says plush, you know, what that's going to be the point that gives them the FaceTime. There you go Bill. I'm the big Louisville. Gotta hate to do this. But I gotta get profit Kentucky football big game this weekend. Posting Georgia elected in of chance to if they win the game. They will play at the championship. They have one SEC championship in forty two years. They got any snow junior running back a great defensive leads the nation type four points per game. I think he's got chance to win this game. I hate to say, but. Top tech team and know best get involved. All right here, we go. This is this is the last goodbye in this reality. This is the last time ever sitting in a chair hosting this show.

HR 3: A Different Lifestyle...

"Ask three o'clock crawl by the way. Not step that leo. I mentioned all the green shirts that he has his closet full of green shirts green shirts only. He texted me. He says he and my mom just counted seventeen regular green shirts various shades and twelve t shirts with green colors currently in the closet. There is nothing but green in not step deadly closet. Wow that he's loyal to notre dame he's super committed to that concept super committed i so John nudism is surging around the world. Now have you ever been to a clothing. optional place. once italy resort in italy. In where is that place. Where george clooney has house lake como. Yeah i talked to clothing optional for you to yeah. I went and laid down land. Share lisa was to my right and a family came in mom. Dad kids that were maybe ten innate boy and a girl and the mom plops down right next to me and takes off her top. Yep and i look at least then. I go come on step up your game no chance but it was like it was nothing. Yeah mean i so. So this is gaining popularity now and a lot of people. Let's face it was the last time you were real pants. Ones last time you were real close. The idea is according to this nature ism society which exploded during the pandemic social isolation has caused an explosion in naked living donna price who lives in scarborough husband. I got into a by accident when we stumbled onto a new speech. My husband hates wearing clothes and wanted to try it. I love swimming. I got into the water naked. I loved it that sold it for me. My husband and i don't work anymore and we live pretty much naked unless it's really cold just normal activities but you don't put clothes on. It's it's very freeing. People tend to make assumptions or judgments based on what you're wearing. It's a great leveler. There is no class no status distinctions. You don't feel as if you're being judged it is very body positive. Everyone is the same fundamentally under there. Even though we might be unique now. John what do you think the nudist. I'll tell you. I i used esa lindell lot. Which is up at big sur esselin. You're not supposed to talk kind of no no not really hippie joint that's like we're pete carroll went and where bill we're jon hamm is at the end of madman jon. Hamm is at the moment. it's a clothing optional. Place and i took the option every single time and there actually is kind of something free about it is a great leveler. Because everybody's see you're running around this place naked. Yeah no close. Nobody needs to see that out of me. I'm going with the bathing suit. But there is something very freeing about going to a clothing optional place. And i'm sorry that lisa did not take advantage of the because frankly that's every beach in europe is right is topless or optional topless. I don't need to be showing off my junk. I'm not really showing off. It's a great leveler. You're actually wind up not being that interested it's kind of the opposite effect lindsay. Whatever try a nudist style. I don't think i wouldn't try nudist lifestyle. But i think if i were to travel to one of these places where where everybody like. A new speech was completely normal. I would. I would give it a try but my question john when you haven't been to a clothing optional beach. I feel like. I've seen things on tv like movies. Or whatever isn't is it true that the nudist people kind of frown upon the close to people. I don't know i don't frown. Upon the right word. I think they They think that your pen up. You know that you're not. You're not going with the flow. Thought they just assumed that you were there as a creeper just wanna walk. Look at all the other naked people but you're not willing to get naked yourself so you feel like in that situation it would be appropriate to be a nudist but otherwise otherwise. I don't think. I would definitely not live my life. What about you and brenda. I don't. I don't think brenda will do it. Be honest no. I mean i. I don't know. I mean. I've been in locker room. So yeah he's fine. The dynamic mace you and lindsey arguing vehemently that reporters should be allowed back into locker rooms. Yeah yeah they should have access to players so for years if you went to cover a wnba game right. Like let's say. And i wanted to talk to shania goo mckay way. That works is i would go down to the locker room. I would tell the pr person. I wanna talk to. She would then go in get chennai chennai would either throw on sweats or if she had already taken a shower. She told her and she'd come out and talk to me. Why couldn't we do that with the nba and major league baseball nfl. You should talk to. Have you ever been in a locker room with ramona hundred times. So momo is actually relationship-building she's talking to guys who aren't being interviewed. Good reporters are talking to guys. That aren't necessarily at a podium. Taking questions right my question would be. Why can't she do that. They walk out of the locker room and they're walking to their car. It's a long walk. What you just reporters are going to trail guys to their car. Do people do it all the time. Yeah that's how everybody got kobe. If you wanted to have a private conversation. Kobe you just wait until you get done with his scrum. And when he walked out to the loading dock. You'd walk with them. yes plachy. He's probably got one hundred stories that way. I think it's weird that people have to be naked in front of a group of reporters. I've only nobody nobody even frigging notices. Nobody notices i think the players who tell you different really. Yeah because i think this is going right back to where it was the i will. I don't think it'll be this year. Oh no definitely not but next year. I think it's going to be a return to normal. I think again reporters are going to be able to relationship build. I've been by somebody who who knows. The reporters will not be allowed in. Nfl locker rooms this year. Yeah that's that's a terrible mistake. A terrible mistake on the part of the league. Although i don't think it's coming back in the nba either. I think it's definitely coming back in the nba. It's what reporters do. I mean you're taking your literally taking people out of jobs where you think these inside sources starr. I'm being told when you hear a reporter. Say i'm being told that. Where do you think that information is coming from well. I think that there may be a situation where they're going to be allowed to talk to players face to face of the locker room but i think now that teams have seen that they can get dressed in private. They're going to keep it. Yes see i think reporters are gonna fight like hell to keep this lindsay. What do you think. I think that i don't. I don't think necessarily matter where it is long as as reporters have the chance like some kind of opportunity to talk to them one on one because one thing with baseball when they do the the pre-game media saleability. It's usually like three hours before the game. So you have to get their super early and you. I've never encountered people getting undressed in that situation. Usually it's the post game. We're just getting out of the shower. If they are to do something with the timing or location. I don't know. I think that there's a way to do it. But they like mason said the exclusivity or the opportunity to have some type of exclusively is what reporters are going to fight for. I don't think most people want to necessarily give do interviews. One guys are getting dressed. But if that's the only time that they had to do to do it i wanted to. Just go back to where it was. I mean return to normal. What's what's wrong with returning to normal. I think there's a new normal. i mean. A lot of things have changed over time. Because i mean you remember okay so let me ask you this. All the restrictions at dodger stadium have been lifted. right if you're vaccinated you don't have to if you're not vaccinated jeff. Why aren't the reporters in the locker room. I i don't know the answer that the answer is because the team has him there are they or are they not. They're not backing locker room. No they're not back in the lock. No because i don't. I'm not i'm not a reporter so when i go to the game i go as a fan. So you're telling me that reporters are not allowed to go into the dodger clubhouse anymore correct as of right now. They're not but so. Let me ask you this. Is there a situation whether it's in any of the three major sports where you think is there. Is there something else that they can do where they can allow reporters to have the opportunity to have one. On one time with players they can go to practice yeah. I'm sure there's a way to do that. i just. I don't know why people don't want the world to go back to the way it was because working pretty well. Yeah the players. Don't want to get dressed in front of a union issue. Though union issue things do change over time because remember like i one of my mentor. Shelter knocker who wrote wrote for the akron beacon journal. He was like an nba in mlb reporter for fifty something years before he retired and he would always tell me these stories about how you know back in the old days then. The writers got to travel on the planes with the teams they. Don't nobody's allowed to do that anymore. It'd be a conflict of interest right so they used to be able to do that and they also used to go out to dinner with them when they're on the road and stuff like that. They don't do that anymore now. It's like the relationship between the writers reporters and then the teams like the players coaches has just changed so much over the years. I feel like they're just getting further and further and further apart. The only thing. I i'm not a big. I used to do locker room for sports net. La and so i. I went and interviewed players. And all that stuff. But i'm i'm not that guy. I'm not that guy that goes in and relationship builds. I'm talking on my ass. But people like ramona who i've witnessed in a locker room talk into guys and building relationships so she can later text them and say. Hey what is going on with this. What is going on with that. I mean that's that's an important part of a reporter's job so i hope it doesn't go away but ireland says it's gone ye continue to do that. She'll do it at practice. Okay interesting all right so tonight is the night. It's over for the clippers. John d. agree. I think so. I think it's over unless somebody. You know the clippers have been down before they were down to twice back and try lose. Been down three one before lindsey knows that and he's come back from three one so it's not a lock but i think it's over. Yeah i think it's over clippers and five sons and five was predicted the beginning and by the way. What will the finals be. Milwaukee phoenix looks. Like you win it. Yeah gimme milwaukee at six all right. I also have a clip. I want to play for you guys. That i can't i didn't know this was the thing and i want to know if i'm the only one all right cool okay. That is coming up dodger. Lineups out for the giants game tonight to give you that okay. Mason and ireland seven ten. Espn hey you want some big dumb fun other than this fast and furious eth- nine was fantastic on now. Here's the scary thing. Vin diesel went. On the kelly clarkson show and says that he wants to do a musical and furious. Oh god i'm like. Oh for god's sake it's already dumb enough to do not need a musical. This one is has reached. And i think they. They're all in on the joke like these things that these cars are doing are absolutely impossible. And that's one of the reasons. Why when all the action going on. I'm just like laughing. Could they're doing now. That's a great one. It's like it's none of it is credible. None of it is believable. But you suspend your disbelief like big dumb movie fun and i was really excited this weekend. That movie did seventy million dollars at the box office this weekend. And that's more pre pandemic numbers. Is that what it would have died. Prepaid probably pre pandemic. it would have done more but that's still a gigantic number. A lot of people went back to the movies so i thought it was really good sign. It's a really fun movie. The the one coming out this weekend is so frigging creepy. It's called the purge the forever per yes. I saw an ad for. It looks good. It's basically it's legalized killing right. Yeah it's just you can kill anybody. It's like the most disturbing thing in the world. Like i almost think i. I shouldn't say they should They should censor that but it really is disturbing most movies like that are disturbing. The concept of the original. One is kind of thought provoking in with the idea that one day out of the year you can. It's okay to kill people. I obviously don't support that but like the watch the movie. It is very intriguing because the reasoning behind it. But then when you say oh this is the forever purge so what. We're just making killing legal for everyone anytime. currently what it is and it opened already ireland. What you said you found something. Yeah all right. So here's the thing. I are you guys familiar with. Something called uncrossed ables. Those are delicious. what are they. They're peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were the crust has been taken off oh and they prepackaged and apparently this is a huge thing with indycar drivers because they can put them in their suits right and just eat them when they have a break. Here's how it all started. This is tony. Qanon who's from brazil and jimmy johnson. Explaining how this all started were doing a bike ride this drive for safety for safety charity bike right that happens around the daytona five hundred each year and i'm starving in the middle of the right and jimmy pool out of pocket uncrossable snack which i had never kneel which for people that don't know because i'm bloodied brazilian. But he was a peanut butter and jelly that he actually freezes in the freezer. Put it in his pocket and doing the right freezes and then you can just eat and since then think. It's it was so many calories. But anyway everytime i opened that thing it's it's it's it reminds me of jimmy. You should try straight out of the freezer. That's like a desert then. Okay here we go see another another layer. What in the world lindsay. You've had one of these before in delicious. They use me until. I started cutting back on sweets and bad foods. They're delicious. They're like my favorite thing to eat. I could eat like ten of them at once so good what. What is the point of taking the crust off while they make it into little pipe from it. Looks like they've crushed the sandwich into sort of a pie with no crust and jelly sandwich and take a circle cookie cutter and put it in the middle and pinch the edges. So this stuff doesn't have you ever had out of it rosen delicious. This is this is a thing for years. I've been eating them. Just been around for like two decades i eat. Pb and j. probably three times a week. It's it's a perfect thing from. Have you ever had an unprecedented. Never have but look at it. He said it's a lot of calories. One uncrossable is two hundred and ten calories with with total fat of eleven percent and total protein of seventeen percent so actually it seems like it probably isn't exactly what i do. It's a good middle the day grab something. Pick it up. I'm actually sounds like it's probably a pretty good thing. It's a little bit like all right. Go to text for michael roth. Yes we've had. Those sandwiches in the press room for three years are delicious. Right about this whole thing that i never had any idea about. Yeah they're pretty good. My daughter loves them. I love them. And it's the enough like if you have won. Incredible is that like having a pb and j. sandwiches that enough for lunch. Yeah i think he needs to of them. There are but be careful. 'cause once you take one you want bachmann. They sell them in boxes of light smallest boxes. Either six of and like i. I used to go through one of those in like a day or two. I'd be like oh if they get big giant box right yes so you can go crazy on him. Yeah no they look good. I now i'm getting all sorts of tweets ireland. The honey and peanut butter are the best incredible ireland. Those things are good. Smucker's puts them out. Yeah this is a poll. I just have a cultural blind spot for unquestionable. They've never had one well. It's in my wheelhouse now. I'm always looking for back when i'm trying. I'm trying to eat healthy right again john. I'm trying to cut some weight. Well this isn't sound like a weight. Cut not healthy no untrue. Two hundred and ten calories for a for a snack is actually pretty good. Like i get a breakfast sandwich. It's like three hundred calories. A peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The ones i get are two hundred twenty calories right the same its protein. It's some fat. It's some carbs.

Shawshank redemption. james caan was offered superman. So get a load of this. Costner turned down. Andy do frayne. Yep hanks tom hanks down and and brad pitt role and they were all doing other movies right. It couldn't do it. See some people. Some actors don't want to be part of a franchise like that like emily. Blunt may be one of those people. I think leo dicaprio. He's been offered multiple times a chance to be part of marvel. Any sort of superhero. Any sort of bad guy something like that. He now my scene well you don't they usually when you sign on for those movies. Don't they usually make you sign on for a few of them for for.

Yeah they ever demi moore. She turned it down. Wow we're known a writer was apparently considered didn't do it. Yeah tough one to turn down. Yeah were take time. I didn't dig that movie. I thought i didn't think it was an all realistic. I like pretty woman was realistic. No i don't think it's realistic why. What was unrealistic about it. Because she was a would you say she was a lady of the night absolutely was she's prostitute. And how many times does the guy actually go back and get with the lady of the night. It just didn't seem realistic to me. That was the point of it. Yeah that's the whole point of it was how he fell in love with her unexpectedly and not wanting to phone with someone. Yeah totally just never bought. It never bought it. I just don't think that would it's sorta like forrest. Gump never bought any of the stuff and forrest. Gump either okay. So have you seen the matrix movies. Of course you know the thing about how this would have been the role of neo. Yup was originally offered to sandra bullock. Wow and she turned it down and they gave it to canneries. Oh that's crazy would have been.

Espn we'll give a couple of you guys a crack at this.

A game mason ireland seventeen. Espn so far. In the month of june ireland has got a narrow lead on the actually horror as long as the head of me just one six. I've won four lindsay as one four. So everybody's kind of in this and it's worth two points today. Unfortunately this is a game that tilts towards ireland. But i'm going to do it anyway. So i will give you an example. I i am going to as an actor as a trained actor. I'm going to deliver a line from famous movie famous line. You will buzzing with your name when you know the answer. This is not one of them. But i just i just want to give you an idea of what's going to happen okay. I'm going to make an author can't remember you said the actor of the movie the movie okay. That was just a test. Fortunately you got it you. You're the one that seen the godfather lindsay has never seen it all right so ireland to get the idea. I do okay. I am prepared and ready to try and catch in the standing. Okay here is number one. Your is your buzzer toto. I feel any giant lindsay. Wizard of oz was devised toto. We're not in kansas anymore. Lindsey third quick to the punch there all right. Here's number two. There's no crying league of their own league of their own. Alan one lindsay one. Hey you have to scratch number three. A census taker. Try to test me. Once i ate his live john. Silence silence of the lambs. Yes census taker tried to test me. Once ate his liver with some fava beans in a nice not a bad hannibal. Lecter wasn't good but it was not bad. All right number four. I see dead people. Horry six cents six cents. Yes ireland titans. He won one number five. Houston john o. Thirteen those close. Houston we have a problem number six. You need people like me. So you can ireland goodman no interesting you're right. It is a very similar line but it is not that. Here's the full line. You need people like me so you can point your fingers and say that's the bad guy. Nothing now nothing house not a few good men. It's not a it's not a few good men what is it. It is scarface. You need people like me. So you can point your fingers and say that's the bad guy face okay. Ireland three three them one. Each to lindsey one. Okay here's the last one. I find your lack of faith disturbing frenzy lindsay star wars star wars. Yes so it's ireland three lindsay to whore. Hey want haram. Sorry you've lost tied for the leaves. You want to want to do the tiebreaker. Just for fun. okay wendy. I have lindsey lindsey. I don't know it's a shining shining shining up my life so far i will not let you f this up. I was going. Say peter pan until you're doing it on the that might very bad. I have no nicholson game at all. None i've never been able to do an impression of nicholson. Can you know horry now. Which is weird. 'cause nicholson's like your favorite actor from a movie. Yeah i hard guide. He's a hard guy to do an impression of don't you think he is but a lot of people have a nicholson and a lot of people have a christopher walken. I have no aim at christopher. Walking walking's kinda easy. He's on the words. I'll go ahead tell us you. Think of something to say Christopher walken unbelievably jay. More oh more does a great krizner rock and yeah yeah. It's a great one all right so at some point today i told a lie on the show just totally made out. I think i've got. I probably shouldn't guess until we let the callers. I think we've got to callers on the line. Who have legit guesses. Why don't you pick them up all right. So and if they miss. But i'm guessing one of these two will Will guess the same thing that that i did. okay. So i'm trying to get into china sam. Here's sam on seventeen. Espn hey sam just dropped okay. Is brian there. Brian you there. What was the line of the day. I think the lions that the matrix was offered well. First of all that was me that was wasn't mason and that was true. It's a good. It was true all right so now you guys get a crack at. What was the lie of the day. John ireland what are you say. Okay you told the story that you knew a guy when you work for the mud. Hens named steve maple. They told you a hundred different places to hide sticky stuff. I think the whole thing is made up lindsay. Do you have a guess. Nine was going to be about going to nudist beach. That's good that's good one. That's going to horry yom with ireland. Steve maple sounds fake to me. Man steve maple was one of my best friends. When i was working with the toledo mud did lindsay. Get it no. I did go to clothing optional. I was at esselin institute a whole bunch of times the correct answer bobby. Valentine never made a weekly appearance york random. There was never an altercation between benny and robin ventura. So what popped into your head by bennie. Ogbah quickly google. Two thousand mets and that name was there. That's very good. Yes there's your lie of the day. Now is i even thought maple sounds like maple syrup which is sticky. And i was convinced i had it. He had a he was a great guy. In fact every day we would play pepper and we played like pepper to the death and we were trying to get promoted temperatures. It's basically pitch and catch one guy throws the ball at the other guys a bat peppers it back to the first guy and we tried to get it out of the reach of the other person. Pepper it away from them so well. That's why you always see the words no pepper around the dugouts. Because they don't want people hitting the ball into the truth it's true. Yeah yeah pepper was a great game is a great game and steve. Maple fantastic i. My mom is probably listening right now. She knows steve maple. He's one of my best buddies. When i was working aaa so do you. Trevor bauer pitching tonight. He struggled a little bit lately but he still has a decent era. Yep he's still has a lot of strikeouts has trevor. Bauer lived up to his billing. That's a good question. You know. I think i would say yes but i'm i'm running the fence. I mean the guy's got a three. Let's see what does he got trying to look at his era. He's got a thirty to fifty seven seven and five to fifty seven. Sign me up. I'll take that point ninety seven where he hasn't been given a lot of run support. Eleven strikeouts per nine. I look at strikeouts per inning. He's got one hundred twenty nine strikeouts in one hundred and one inning. So yeah trevor. Bauer has been absolutely devastating but his last three starts have been less so and they're facing in this series. The dodgers are facing the giants in the series of dodger. Stadium two games. They're facing the giants best pitchers anthony desclafani tonight. And then tomorrow night is kevin guzman. Who is a cy young candidate. You could argue the desk. Lafont candidate to that by the way giants the you know the dodgers kinda got back on track over the weekend. So they're back. As the favorites to go to the world series are they. Yeah you know who the favorites to go to the world series out of the american league houston so it could be dodgers stroz in the world series. Again of the one they cheated signed me up. That is the ultimate show-business revenge series in history. Isn't it. that's the one we want. We want the astros them to flame up rather than the yankees. The yankees is kind of a heritage world series. Yeah but let's face it. We got dirt on the astros. We got dirt on them. We got a score to settle. They stole the twenty seventeen world series. How fun would it be to go to dodgers yankees game in yankee stadium during the world series. But could you imagine an astros. Dodgers game at dodger stadium in the world series. Nab app the jen that we've already thrashed. We haven't even seen it dodger stadium. Of course we have. I would rather see the you at the dodgers astros games at the world's not seen them deal with the ramifications of what i the astros not played at dodger stadium since they stole the. We see him booed elsewhere. Yeah coming into the month rate. Come and beginning of august early early august. Yeah we get the astros here. I rather see that than the dodgers. Play the yankees in the world series. For what it's worth there you go all right. Hey that's mason and ireland today. Thanks for listening. Coming up next for you is our state of the art afternoon drive show. It is sodano. L z. cap is back from south miami beach. That is coming up next for you. See you tomorrow.

HR 1: Is Justin Turner Over the Hill?

"I don't even know you i. I've seen love action people in this world. Those who have seen love actually in those who suck. He has leave the relatives in the second camp. He has a rock for a heart. John that is what chris is. He's got a rock for a heart. Unbelievable so there's so much going on. I mean a ton of stuff going on including including kevin o'connor from the wringer is gonna join us coming up here. Yeah you did a great article out. Excellent t h t article bottom of the hour one thirty eight titanic meltdown from one of the world's biggest stars and then at two o'clock john. How do you feel about justin turner getting a three year deal with the dodgers. What time is bill. Latchkey coming on coming on one. I'm coming on to join me to tell you now you want me to save it. Well i'm trying to decide what my position is. I'll be honest with them trying to decide what my position design is easy. You'll be tolerated until you can be replaced if they can get nolan. If they can get nolan aaron. I can't believe bills fallen for this heart. And soul crap that that never heart and soul crap is weird. It's actually real john. It just totally real never real it is. What are you talking about. The greatest players in the world get traded all the time peyton mann got traded. He was a heart and soul of the colts. I mean you. Heart and soul. Derek fisher got traded. John like in the middle of the night and nobody thought twice about derek. Fisher was heart and soul. The lakers interest harden soul. If you were to pull the players in the locker room they would say he. Is doug guy. He's the guy that connects everybody of course would until nolan aeronautic comes in and blows him away across the board. Can i okay in this scenario of yours. Can i get aaron auto by the way. Here's the thing he might pick one of the mets well. Jimbo said he's going to the dodgers. I know i don't know gyms kenya well. Those couple of weeks ago. He had jim. Oh we should get him back. the latest. The latest thing is no lin- rinaldo to the mets. As opposed to nolan renato to the dodgers. All right if i can't get nolan. Aeronautica shirl all have justin turner back. I'd take justin. Turner ahead of kris bryant. I don't think kris bryant any great shakes marta. Simeon is the guy that the dodgers are interested in who is a shortstop slash third baseman. Two years ago he did to hit thirty. Three home runs two years ago. But but let's be fair he okay so simeon hit thirty three homers ninety two rbi's in his last full season seven homers. Twenty-three rbi's what it turned into in his last short season last nine covid season last full season. Justin turner was to ninety twenty seven homers sixty seven. Rbi close yeah. They're in the ballpark. I do believe in giving the heritage contract. I do believe you reward somebody at the end of the day if they have led you the way justin turner has led the dodgers and by the way if you look at it realistically hit two ninety five this year with twelve homers and forty one. Rbi's it's not like you saying. Justin turner is over the hill. I don't think he's over the hill thirty six. Is he using your own words against you. Either ascending or descending which is it He's holding steady. There isn't a holding steady. You'd foamy there are only two choices. You're players either ace ending or descending which is it. yeah. I mean he's slightly. Descending descending aaron auto is sending. yeah so i mean if you can get it's all it's all what else is. What are my other options. Do i would i. Would i be mad if the dodgers resigned. Just turner no. He's a great guy. he's a good player. But if i can get nolan or not. Oh to replace turner by the way if i could. Trevor bauer to replace kershaw. You're not trevor our to replace kershaw. Wait a minute. Why wouldn't you. Who would you rather have next year. Gimme kirsch kirsch yet to have a bad regular season kershaw. How old is kershaw. Kershaw thirty two. I think what you want to bring back don sutton you want to bring back perm way when it. Hey come on. Listen when thirty two gets over the hill. That's that's a little extreme. That's a little extreme. What i'm saying is it depends. What their other are right. But you're you're treating everybody like they're just disposable. everyone is disposable. I learned that from you. I look. I don't know that when i'm talking about another team i don't understand it went on talking about money you'd be a horrible. Gm by the way kershaw to sixteen era last year three. Oh three year before to seventy three the year before two thirty one of our area year. It's a pop quiz thunder to i mean our now. If you told me i can have clayton kershaw or i would hear four year before last. Trevor bauer six point. Three nine era year before that three point seven ninety are a year before that four point four eight saying is. You don't trust his cy young year. Correct i think he's going to get five years from somebody and i hope it is not us. He's having really one accomplish season. Yeah andrew friedman has never been that guy to give out a five year free agent contract to somebody like don't you don't you john ward to mookie betts but i know anybody would have given it to vets. Don't you at the end of the road. When get a nice heritage contract from seven ten years they would the hearts and souls. Amanda would fire us tomorrow if she could get somebody better in here and she wouldn't even think twice about it. We already know that from the last meeting we had with her. She doesn't care about us. She cares about ratings and that's her job. I don't play no she. She is come around on us in fairness she has come around. I don't care azer. She hasn't you. And i will be judged on ratings and i'm friends with amanda if mayer for ratings down. The toilet were fired. If our ratings are good we'll get another quote unquote heritage contract. I wanna heritage contracts the way it should be for justin turner by the way this this argument and bills coming on later today. Bill plachy would you say two o'clock two o'clock you don't pay people for past performance in sports. You pay them for what they can do. Let me ask you. I know this is an extreme circumstance. Yeah but what did the lakers do. With kobe bryant. Kobe helped them win multiple titles. I mean they justin. Turner helped them win one helped. Yeah wasn't the main reason but he helped. Kobe was the main reason the lakers all their titles. Lemme lemme twists something on you. Justin turner in the postseason in the postseason is batting to ninety five with twelve homers and forty one. Rbi's career postseason when matters. That is a career. That's career okay. To ninety five twelve homers forty one is in the postseason out to me that means he's got a clutch gene man. You want the clutch gene. You want somebody who has been in the big moment somebody who succeeded in the big moments. That's that's rare man. We talked about it because if you only had the money if you only had the money to play turner who as you point out is excellent in the postseason yup or bellinger whose terrible in the postseason who give it to well. It's not. it's not apples to apples. No just say justin turner give it would give it a bellenger. Because he's younger. Yeah could justin. Turner is probably looking for three years. Forty-five cody bellinger is looking for. Two hundred million right. Billy don't requires million so we'll cory seager. These are decisions that should be made void of emotion. Can't you can't do it man. Look how emotional fan. And i understand. Andrew freeman is a number guy. He's a black and white guy. he's all that stuff but the reality is fans love justin turner fan. Justin turner was a huge part of their world series championship and all these division titles all in a row and by the way. I wanna point out that i i did one of those promo videos before the show and i made exactly the opposite case but this is the one that settles in my heart. I'm thinking with my heart like a lot of dodger fans and i want justin turner back. He is our guy. I'm going to read a quote from the tweet. From the great charles freeman who we know and love mesa's thinking with his heart his head giving turner a three year guaranteed contract now is stupid five million dollars. You would tie up till his age thirty nine season. You and bill. Plachy been watching too many hallmark movies. Wait a minute. You're the hallmark movie guy. But i'm the one who wouldn't pay turner wanting santa's wonderland mrs claus kiss. Somebody under the christmas tree are all those other garbage. Movies are just because you said that. I'm gonna get a hallmark movie named that exactly what you just say. Dare you crap on hallmark. Mrs claus give someone other than mr klaus kiss under the criminals like that. I think that my wife has gone off. She's gone off the deep end. She's gone round the bend so they say how's that she this. This came out of her mouth earlier. This morning show. Justin bieber's christmas album is fantastic. That's when you know you've gone too far. What's wrong with justin bieber. Have we heard anything from. I had to listen to the whole thing really. Jessie duarte doing the sale does is he. He does his own twists on traditional songs. Like he does. Santa claus is coming to town but he completely changes everything. The melody lyrics at one point during santa claus is coming to town. He says shake it. Shake it baby now. It does that mean that he wants santa claus to shake it. Mrs claus an elf. What does that mean. he's telling me to shake shake it. Okay here's the thing john. I don't know if you know this but not everybody is fifty five years old fifty six years old justin bieber fan. Yeah i think bieber. It's done some good songs. I loved esposito. One of the biggest records of all time. I think i will say this that when justin bieber did the third chair with michael and i yes here this is this is his santa claus is coming to town. Turn this up or hey. It's kind of a disco version of. Now what's your problem with that. That sounds fun. It sounds like it sounds now. This is such a departure for you earlier this week. You use the term back. Yeah now you understand why people would just no. I don't have anything against the beeps. But i think he's torturing this christmas song by the way whore hair. We going christmas music from here on out. Yeah awesome all right. Cool we're We're christmas music. So take that coast. We're now christmas music all the time. A better argument earlier in the show. That amanda only cares about ratings. Yup this from michael. That's not true about a man because me and trudell still don't have. He is one hundred percent right one hundred percent right. I've always wanted for will. Cain that was greg bergman's great contribution manages corporate greg's idea cain instead of thompson corporate greg. What were you thinking coming up next for. Kevin o'connor On the player that lebron james has had an ion since all the way back when he was in high school and a titanic meltdown from one of the world's biggest stars at one thirty mason ireland seven ten. Espn seven ten. Espn mason ireland. Is that bieber again. Yes you're more beaver. All right so Joining us right now. From the wringer is a guy who has written about lebron and his early impressions of taylor and horton tucker going all the way back to when i was in high school kevin. Thanks for coming on. How are you. i'm doing great how you doing. We're doing great kevin. And and kevin you're a perfect person to ask. When i saw your when he saw kevin o'connor on the story i was hoping we could track you down because my other job is i do. Radio play by. Play for the lakers. And i've been struggling in my own head to control the hyperbole. About taylor horton tucker. How big should i go. I mean to me he looks great. He looks fantastic. Potential jumps off the chart and this was kind of the point. Your article that they may have found something here but are we thinking. I'll just ask for your opinion are we thinking he's like kyle kuzma good jalen brown. Good jason tatum. Good i mean how good is it. I mean he's better than kyle because we can say that for certain in terms of his upside what can be as a player four and a half five years younger than coups all right now and to the product. He's made on the defensive end of a court from last year and during his rookie season after iowa. Stay where he was so bad on defense. That whole was bad on defense but from year one the nba to what we saw in the bubble to always saw again just now in the preseason. He's made massive improvement. There never mind the fact that he's taking smarter shots on offense like when you watch them in college you'd like this guy. The bucket he can score but he didn't know about like salt selection decision making defense and he's checking those boxes and it's only a second season i mean to me like he's somebody had love the draft because of all those question marks a lot of teams had rightfully so but the fact that he's doing all this this to me suggests that hey this is a feeling the making and he's only going to get better from here so reading your piece. It sounds like lebron had an early. I on this kid all the way back to high school right. Yeah i mean lebron is i mean i live. This connection happened. That's hard tucker aside with klutch. Sports and of course the lakers with lebron eighty and all the cups guys. There're one of the teams are willing to trade him to the second round and make it happen and vice versa. that sucker and clutch willing to go there rather than go undrafted like you see. Some prospects do so. I think that you know. The connection was lebron and clutch and the lakers organization winning team. Now i think all of that has played into a positive developmental situation for him because he went to a losing team. I hope you see him. Playing hard on defense. I don't think you'd see him making the positive decisions that he is isn't the court because it's so important when it comes to the success or failure of young players in the league and horn talker. I mean he could not have fallen in a better situation now. Matara like whereas the playing time for him to get even more developmental minutes against nba level competition on a regular basis. We're talking to kevin o'connor from the ringer he's written about taylor in horton tucker and and just tried to kind of examine. What the lakers have in the second round pick and you mentioned it kevin. That he's only twenty three weeks ago he was nineteen. I mean he just turned twenty so matter of fact he was the second youngest player ever to win an nba championship. The youngest was darko. Believe it or not and the was second but here you talked about playing time. It's gonna be kind of a dance for frank vogel and he talked about it yesterday. That it's a good problem to have but most nba teams kevin. And you cover the league as much as anybody you know that. When playoff time rolls around the rotations tighten up their normally playing seven. Eight nine guys. If t h t gets regular rotation minutes the lakers are going to have eleven. Rotation guys guys that played in the championship. Run or guys like schreuder mark assault. Wes matthews who you know. We're gonna play this year with that in mind that he's on he's in a rotation that's eleven deep and he just turned twenty years old realistically. How much are we going to see this guy this year. What what are you thinking for playing time for. T h you know i. It's complicated. Because i think we just saw in the nfl and major league baseball the the the complications of what we have now the pandemic and that to me makes depth all the more important. Because you're gonna have situations during the season where it there is inevitably going to be a positive case or even if it's a false positive or whatever else it might be. And because of the fact for the lakers also help it when it comes to just regular injury the fact that they won the championship just two months ago right. So you're gonna see nights. Lebron takes a night off. You might be nice for that matter where your soul take the night off and maybe instead of playing another big off the bench you instead could just play fight. Entailing horton tucker at six. Four seven one. Wingspan and damn depends on larger guys and play smaller overall but to me there's gotta be minutes for him even if it's not on a nightly basis where to come on a nightly basis obviously a longer term injury happened or to make trade because to me. The big thing about horton tucker development. Is he kinda makes coups ma a little bit more expendable. When it comes to any type of move that might be available whether it's a long term peace or somebody that can help now. It just gives you options. I vogel. I think a good call to have openly kevin o'connor from the ringer's with us mason and ireland seven ten. Espn so take a step back here. We are obviously incredibly excited about this. Lakers team They look like the very best team. I had the best team in basketball. Who who do they legitimately. Who can legitimately play with them. Nobody and i. I mean like i picked the league championship before the season last year and i feel stronger about this year than last year. I feel like you know you always want to look for other teams. That can you compete and have a chance. And i think the clippers got you know a little bit worse or not much better and dallas got better. But they're still not at the level of the lakers and know up and down the west at the nuggets. Worst looking jeremy grant. That's a significant loss. He's important for them. And you know. I think the lakers have separated themselves. Would their additions. And i'm not sure if there's some sense been i'll nationally about it but to me. They are declare favorite than to me the heaviest favorites we've seen since the peak warriors team could be special. Yeah i i'm i'm with you kevin. I think barring injury and you talked about the pandemic factor to barring that something unusual what happened with the pandemic or injury. I i liked this laker team as much as any team. And i've been been covering them in working with them for twenty years. I complete with you. Hey before we let you go because this is the big story in the nba and you cover the whole league. How do you think that. James harden thing ends. Does he end up staying this season in houston do they. Trade him sometime in the next couple of months. What's your thought on on where that goes from here. I think he's making the right decision to take us into the season. 'cause you have to give it a chance that it works as slim as data. Chance might be that he loves. John wall beloved cousins that he loves being coached by stephen silas. But with all that said i do believe everything i've heard from sources everything that's out there that we've been talking about is that it didn't have it all he will be traded. It's just a matter of when that would actually happen. It wouldn't shock me one bit if this is something that lingers to next offseason 'cause to me that's the best time to do it that's one more teams are going to be available at strong draft. You would see more teams. That aren't mentioned right now. Besides the brooklyn. Besides you know the philadelphia. But i've even miami. I think you'd see more team. Step up. which could only drive up the price for heart disease. You who player. But he's still one of the best guys in the league he's still gonna be p. candidate. Kevin we really hardcore show here. Obviously and one of the things we've talked about today is whether or not. It is cool for justin bieber to do a christmas album now. John is is not a fan of hater. I dicky's kevin. I think he's torturing christmas songs. Literally torturing the how do you feel about bieber's christmas album. I gotta give it a little bit. I pulled up the spot of violence saying it. I mean he's got some good song. Bangers santa claus town by beaver. I gotta listen to this. I'm not gonna win you do when you listen to that particular song. He will in the middle. Just start saying shake it. Shake it baby. What in the world is santa claus. Supposed to shake. That's when i bed. You're not lie. Maturity realized that listen to it take it rip off review on twitter. Something let no. It's it's out there. it's out there. Kevin takes a lot for coming on. We appreciate it. man. Kevin bolinger yes. He's okay within. Here's some banks on that john. Look at that. i don't know why. Why the bieber hate. I'm not hating. I'm saying that he is murdering christmas songs. Not even torturing he's murdering this speaking of murdering there is a major hollywood celebrity. Who wants to kill everybody. Who wants to kill everybody. We got that coming up next for you. Then at one forty lebron talking about how his situation in two thousand ten. Cleveland was different from jaanus in milwaukee. We'll get to that also and at the top of the hour. Two o'clock sharp. Bill plachy is gonna join us. Should the dodgers resigned. Jt justin turner. That's all coming up for you mason in ireland seventeen. Espn go bibs is rocket lynch. What do you think of the beep. I love bieber. Yeah i've never. I've i've rarely heard his christmas songs. But they remind me of like an old navy commercial. It's true they do. This album is ten years old. I would definitely not be opposed to him. Updating it you know doing a new one you know that mariah carey song. What's her big christmas. All i want for christmas all i want for christmas is number one again. It goes to number one every single christmas. It's like the ultimate classic christmas song by the way a put there by love actually just correct correct. Absolutely right All right so yesterday we got this. This audio and this is a major time hollywood celebrity. He shooting a movie in europe. This is tom cruise shooting movie in europe. And i don't know it's mission. Impossible seven or eight or whatever it is and he's got very strict cova guidelines on the set and nobody is to boast to get within six feet of each other so he saw somebody to guys within three feet of each other and this is how he went off porn in utah. I've seen anywhere politics. You people are losing playful. That's what i sleep with every night. John does this make it. Do you think he comes off. Well or badly okay. I want you to answer first. And you'll understand why when i go after you but i was curious what you thought i had this. It was funny. I sent one clip and use. The clip is longer than that like two minutes. Did a great job of cutting it down to under a minute. But what do you think of his rant. I think he is a complete and total jerk talk about punching down in class. I mean these guys are working on a set. They were long ass hours. They apparently got within three feet of each other is what their reports three. What i heard was they were both looking over the same laptop without mass. Okay god is what set him off. But honestly you wanna talk about a hostile workplace. You wanna talk about an ass. Tom cruise is that. I think he comes off. Really really badly in this thing saying. Oh see serious about kobe no. He's not serious about treating the people that he works with. Well wow i could not be more opposite view on. Wow i thought this was how and this is by the way. I think this is pretty consistent for you. Because i thought when when justin turner tested positive for covid then ran out on the field and started taking pictures without a mask that this was going to be the type of reaction to justin turner. I thought somebody was going to go off like this because he. He knew he was positive. These are people that very well might not have had cove it you know but justin turner knew he was positive and was out on the field running around but your reaction and you take covert more seriously than most of my correct. So so your reaction was. It's the world series. Cut him a break. I think that it was after the world series to write. Your opinion was no big deal. Get pass made a mistake. I know everything shutdown down. I mean industries are shut down completely right now. I think he comes off here at somebody who gets it. He is treating the people he works with very very badly. So one was on the set of something Last week and they have a covid compliance officer. Okay and that's the person that goes around into guys guys guys. Nope can't can't get that close together. That's the way that supposed to work. It's not supposed to work in a swear late in rating wearing of employees. I do. But i don't swear at people i don't call you a an effort. That's essentially what he's doing with all of his the people. He works with and honestly. I always thought tom cruise off the air. When he's not making movies was a really nice guy always thought tom cruise. He seems like he treats people well. Club samples is ben. Goes a lot of been lions. He goes on a lot of those junkets invinci- he's great so a friend of mine. Who was a unit photographer on a tom. Cruise movie was very excited. One day because tom long after the movie was over had sent roses to her on her birthday. Now that's where my idea of tom cruise came from. I was like what a nice guy. What a nice guy that is now. I'm like what an ass. What a jerk. How can you treat people like that. How can you just be rate people like that. It's one thing to say guys guys guys guys to close it's another thing to call them m efforts and all that kind of stuff. Well i don't know if he directly call them. That i think he said he deals with the studios and he's trying to keep people employed and try and i. I actually thought that. I guarantee you. Nobody's gonna lot like when you have a coach that screamer i guarantee. Nobody's going to violate the covert rules on that mission. Impossible said again. I mean it depends how you want to get your point across like when the lakers were winning. Kobe was the bad cop. And derek fisher was the good cop so kobe would come and yell and he would be the tom cruise in this situation and then fisher would come in behind him and go you know what he is so different people have different ways of getting their points across. I thought cruise comes across as somebody who understands the seriousness of covid. And who gets it. Lindsey what did you think. I don't know i guess i'm on the fence and i know that's not a good position to be in but not take a spot. We need a hot take me take. I think he's right. While i've been subject to being treated really crappy by people. I work with. I feel like in this situation when you have people dying. Is you know at the rate that they are. I feel like he's he's kind of especially when you know there's a lot of people that don't have jobs and here you have an opportunity to be working and you're you could possibly blow it by not following the rules. Just follow the rules. What do you think. I think he's right idea with some of that stuff in the workplace. Ninety guys like being rated that right base. What's interesting about this. Is you used to be that guy. I mean it's been a lot of years since you are true. I was just going to say that. I used to be a guy who berated people really did and so i think it again in this situation. It's different because i was treated very badly. When i worked with some certain people in the past who is it. Who is it. tell us. let's just be between us. We won't tell anybody who is no. It's just i think again. He's spending a lot bigger than that you know like this is. They're talking about a national pandemic here. He was talking to me about that over something like coffee or even even anything. I'm doing like oh i didn't like the way edited. This is what you did that. Then of course you'd be a horrible human being but he's just he's doing it because he doesn't want people to get sick and died as wanted to production to get shut down so people don't lose their jobs so if i'm tom cruise and i see that i'm like guys guys separate you can't be that close together. Thank maybe he already did that. Yeah you don't know if that's something he already tried. It didn't get through. I just i just what a jerk. Nobody even somebody goes off like that. He's tried to You know it's the old you get more bees with honey. He's tried to do it with honey and it didn't work well. That's a hell of a stick. He's waving yeah so you got to come in with the big guns yeah All right. I can't believe we have a different take on that. That's amazing to me now. Could actually even disagree more. I thought good for tom cruise because nobody else has taken this seriously. At least he is. I ta- coming up next for you. Two thousand ten. Lebron james and cleveland decided to leave decidedly yesterday. He talked and yana. Senator kubo decided to stay in milwaukee. Lebron pock yesterday about how those situations are different. And we'll play that for you next mason ireland seventeen. Espn singer beeps sippy wrong with you. Mason ireland seven ten. Espn so we're we're playing you. Every cut on justin bieber's out today just yet just to just to irritate them. So so yes. Of course. this week yana. Senator gupo signed his five year. Two hundred twenty eight million dollar supermax contract with the milwaukee bucks and lebron was in a similar spot in two thousand ten when he had a chance to stay with the cavaliers or bolt for miami and of course he took the miami route. He talked yesterday at practice about janas decision. Not being similar to what he went through in two thousand ten. I'll novak relate to his situation. All of our situations are different totally different. Actually they've tried to build something great for him and obviously they did enough to keep them there. And great eddie. Stand air he's committed franchise and you know and that's what it's all about so but i don't think my situation situation we have no. Similarities is totally different. John what do you think. I think i think it was exact same situation because wasn't workday the number one seed. What didn't cleveland win. Like sixty games the year. Lebron left that a great year. They had a great year and this is picked him to go to. Weren't they the number one seed in the east and most people picked him to go to the finals and then they landed up getting upset by. I think it was orlando. And that's one of the years. The lakers won the title. Yup a little bit similar. But i mean no. I don't even think they're little bits. I think they're precisely similar will wait a minute. Here's the thing didn't hasn't jaanus has been in milwaukee for seven years like lebron was. There's only been there for five. Well i signed a super max extension. You would know the contract situation better than i do. Think he's i think he may have changed. Lebron was in cleveland. Lebron came into the league in two thousand four and spent seven seasons with the cavs. I'm pretty sure jaanus is only spent five with the bucks. My argument with lebron leaving what was always. Hey seven. years is a heck of a commitment to somebody. If you can't get a team built around lebron in seven years it's every bit his right to go somewhere else. no. I'm not going to dispute. It's his right at of course it's his right i would never dictate to a player or say no. You shouldn't do that or yes. I'm i'm completely for players having self determination. So that's not the right. It's just it is what happened. John is choosing to stay in a smaller market. Entrusting an organization to build something around him. And he's going to do that for the next five years. Legrand was was in that spot. He elected to go to miami. And i'll fold them for that. He wanted to win and he felt like cleveland was not a place that he could win. Or cleveland was not a place where he felt that he had a chance to win. At least in the short term so i do understand that part of it but the situations are very very similar. Okay what about this angle of it. Jaanus or lebron went to. He was playing for dan. Gilbert right by the way seven years jaanus in milwaukee the same identical okay. So lebron was playing for dan. Gilbert who didn't respect the up. He went to miami to play for micky arison which is one of the most respected guys in the league. Pat riley runs all that for under any immediately went to four straight nba finals and won two titles. You'll notice it when he went back to cleveland. He did it. Even though he didn't respect gilbert he got them a title anyway sure and then he went to another good ownership. He went to genie the so. Maybe that's part of the difference to lebron wanted lindsay. You would know better me dizzy. Possibly just wanted to get away from dan gilbert. I think that's part of it. But i think it was a lot of things i think. He also wanted to experience. Because you know growing up in akron in playing. In cleveland like yeah. Everyone wants to play for their hometown team. But a lot of people equate it to him like going away to college like he wanted to experience playing in a big flashy market and going to mar miami and being able to party and butte famous people. And all those kind of things that you don't get in a place like cleveland. So i think it was a lot of things combined. So here's how identical it was jaanus and everybody knows this. It was it was out there. Miami was creating room to sign you. Honest so you talk about pat riley. You talk about micky. Arison you talk about the exact same management situation. He could have said well now. I think miami's a better situation instead. He decided to stay were he was. I wonder about this. And i get your take on this. I don't think milwaukee's gonna win a championship. This year I think it's unlikely. I don't know what it's going to look like withdrew holiday but i find it hard to believe that. They're going to be on par with with the lakers or with any of the other power teams. They'll likely get a number one seed but they still have that ultimate problem of of the defensive building a wall and making janas shoot from outside you know is he lacking some competitive gene in other words is he not saying. I want to go where i can win. I'll just stay here. I don't know i wouldn't accuse him of that. I think that just like i would never blast a player for exercising. His right to be a free agent chirp. I wouldn't blast him for staying. They've won sixty plus games every year. He's been now. This past year was cova kneecap. But they won more games than any other team in the regular season. They were the number one seed until they lost to miami. So it's not like he's staying for a check you know. It's not like they. You picked milwaukee to go to. The finals from the gecko last year. A lot i did. I did and now i see the flaws in that team. Yeah say he must see the flaws in the but he can. He's the only one who can fix that. He's got to work but he's got to develop an outside shot. Yeah i just. I think it's interesting. They are parallel situations. In the way. I know i i obviously circumstances personal feelings organizations all. That kind of stuff is different. But it's kind of the same decision. Lebron chose to move on to miami where he won championships. And jaanus is staying in milwaukee where he hopes that they can put a winning team around him or pro two championship team around. How much better do you think they're going to be withdrew holiday. I don't know they are going to be better at all. I mean they've been the best team in the two years running. They have nowhere to go but down. Yeah so i love jrue holiday. He's an la key player ucla guy. I think he's great. is he. That much better than eric bledsoe. Can he be the second best player on a championship team. So that i mean it remains to be seen. I don't know going back to the conversation. We had with kevin. O'connor i don't know if anybody can beat the lakers this yeah i don't think so either. Big they can play small. They could play fast. They could play slow. They can play. Bully ball with lebron. Ad the other night when they when they're making threes like they were against the clippers on sunday when they shot a shot. Seventy two percent right. I mean who beats that righty. No he's been that team. So i'm i'm in agreement. The one area that. I think they may be slightly. Worse is room product protection down low. And i know they've got a d. but they relied on dwight in jail for that and just watching mark assault play. He's different he's a five but he's different from jbl and dwight he's more of a stretch. The floor guy than he is a rim protector. So i think they may suffer slightly rim protection from the group. They've got now. Maybe but that's minor. That's like a breastroke on the mona lisa. Because i think it's a beautiful team. But but i think that's the one area that i think could be slightly worse on defense. That's generally my thought and really really better on offense. I think that team is going to score like crazy coming up next for you. What are the dodgers do. Do they stick with justin. Turner signed him to a three year deal or do they move along. Bill plachy is gonna join us from the la times in just a minute. We will talk about that and also john. I've got a bet for you today. Excellent i want to see if you've got stones to make this bet. Is it a mythical money. Bet i don't main it may or may not be. We'll see where we get with it. We'll see where we get with mason in ireland seventeen espn.

By the way did you see the report yesterday on which. Nba player is most recently dating and instagram model. No i would assume all of them were. Who's the latest wit.

Have you officially broken off with the creepy guy back and forth where she tried to break it off. The creepy guy wasn't getting the hint has he. Has he texted you today. I haven't got a text today. Okay good i mean we. We literally only texted each other like four times so there was never anything to break off. It wasn't sixty two times. No guy but i. I do have thirteen unreciprocated texts from him. Thurgood come on get the hint dude. At some point you gotta get that lindsay eight india all you gotta do. If you don't want me to bug it send me one. Stop bugging me. You're out delete you from my phone so many people in there anyway. We got so much coming up there. Such interesting stuff today. Did you watch the. I wanna get into politics. But you watch the inauguration. I did all of it yeah. It's really here here. Good political who is that girl from. La who read the poem. She was stunning. She's been the star of the inauguration. So okay so you don't want my reaction. She's twenty two right. She gets done reading that poem and i looked beautiful. I mean it's a beautiful poem. I looked at least that man. I wish it would have paid more attention to poetry in. I don't have that club in my bag. Do you know no. I can't i can't i can't write a poem to same. Limericks yeah very good at limerick limits are easy for me but poems. I've never really tried. It's actually really cool though every four years we do this thing and it's really cool and it's an american tradition and everybody today feels you know like i should. I don't wanna. I don't wanna yada yada that. That poet her name was amanda gorman. He's actually a really good story. And you should google amanda gorman. She was biproduct valet. She's she's the youth poet laureate. And i don't know why they picked her but whoever picked her just hit a grand slam she was she was fantastic. So we got a lot of stuff coming out today. Bill gared buddy bill. Plachy is gonna stop by at one thirty. Two o'clock dan graziano is going to be with us. Espn nfl insider. Were giving away a thousand bucks this week. You gotta be listening to two o'clock for our lakers back to back freeze that pays part one at two part two to fifteen to thirty a chance to win and on top of that in the third hour of the show. Three o'clock i just. I just had this idea that what we're gonna do is john. You're gonna say the thing you most love about me and the thing you most hate about me. Yes you're not going on the u you and lindsey and i'm gonna do the same with you guys and then lindsay and hey are going to do it too. So we're going to get kind of personal in our three o'clock hour today. It's it's in honor of jared goffin sean mcvay. Vs marriage counseling. Yes loo- according to several reports and certainly why from the nfl network was the one who first coined that phrase that the two of them need marriage counseling. So we're going to do. Basically an open counseling session. Basically now it goes with us. It will determine if whether or not sean mcvay and jared goff have a chance to make it now. Here is sam. steve walsh sandwich. The steve wash from nfl network. I think he was on with george nailsea last night. You have gerry goffin sean. Mcvay need marriage kind. We know john wolford came in and you know they were excited about him. Jared goff got hurt in the way he performed then he got hurt so i think a lot of people are wondering is there are going to bring a veteran type of quarterback to push jared goff this off season or to at least have that threat there as a backup to see if they can elevate gough and people. I've spoken to said basically at this moment. The relationship with golf and mcvay not great. They need marriage. Counseling is one person said to me. I think this is something that they're going to be able to work through. But there's gotta be some healing and that's not. Just what jared goff's injured thumb so weird because for the first couple years there was this idea that jared goff was an extension of mcvay on the field. You know. he's in his head. He talks right up until that fifteen second. Mark and jared goff executes and this year was the first time that i've heard mcveigh throw anybody under the bus. And he did it. Multiple times with jared goff and. let's be honest. Jared goff got benched in the seattle game in the wildcard round of the weekend. That wild card weekend. I mean he was healthy he wanted to go and mcveigh opted for wolford and i think john if wolford had not suffered the head injury that he did in the seattle game he probably would have gotten the start in the game of the second game of the playoffs. The divisional round against green bay. What do you think i. There's no doubt in my mind. Yeah this is something that you've kind of come around to. But i thought from the beginning bill. Plachy is coming up by thought from the beginning. Yeah they're wolford gives them a better chance to win. And and whether or not you agree with sean mcvay thinks that you know sean. Mcvay has thought that since wolford played that one game against arizona insurnace. A wolford couldn't have done anything in that green bay game that would have saved the day like roy though. Yeah would ruin them in the green bay game aaron donald donald who by the way was named defensive player of the year this year in the nfl. My official my official response to that in aggregate ahead and. Okay yeah da. That's my official respond to that. We never get aggregated. We're not aggregate on ireland. Espn la win. When asked when jared goff or when your dad was named nfl defensive player of the year official comment duh. Yeah amanda gorman has has has phrases in poems and she's very she's very eloquent. Yes my response. Da da below. Beto just sent me a text. Amanda gorman this morning when she woke up yes had twenty five thousand followers on twitter. Yep after gator thing she's up to six hundred and fifty thousand. That's it's called me your moment right. That is a phrase good for her good for her. And i'm sure she's gonna do all kinds of poems on one hundred two hundred and forty character poems witter. She does yeah. She's great. yeah me too me too. And yeah i was thinking today and god bless the guy who's doing it but would you ever want to be the leader of the free world. Sherwin went at no seriously think about it. Honestly no jam thing about i would i. Would i would surround myself with people smarter than me but you know one. Yeah why not. You know i have said and people think i'm joking about this but my congresswoman is Karen bass who. I think is just a fantastic representative. I think she was on the shortlist to be the vice president and Almost became our senator replacing campbell harris. If she ever said. I'm doing something else i honestly would run for. Congress i think it would. Would you give me your fifteen second platform your elevator pitch on. Why should vote for you for congress. Okay lille we'd federally and everybody under fifty thousand dollars a year pays no taxes I think you're in trouble. Why what do you. What your position on immigration immigration. I'm for a path to citizenship. I was disrupted. So yeah. you're i mean you've got to work out who gets who gets the no taxes and who doesn't you. You've got some hurdles. There will pay more taxes. That's the rule. I would vote for it. Just because i know you know i agree with all your policies. I'd rather have a guy. I know in office than a guy. Don't yeah i know what i don't know. I want to leave the radio. I isn't there a deal. Where like is there. Still that rule that equal time rule. Yeah i don't say. Espn radio show than espn offer. Three hours a day to your opponent. yeah. I don't think you can run for congress and be on the radio for three hours every single day by the thing. I don't know as what if iran as steve mishaan ski and on the radio. I was steve mason. Oh people are people figure that out. Yeah no people figured out. Yeah no but. I always thought i would. I'd be interested in doing that. That would be a great third act. You ever think about your third act john. Yes i'd like it to be retirement. Yeah that's your your third act. Is you retire will what i what. I've often a realized over the last probably three years. Is this idea of working two or three jobs. My whole life. Yeah has burned me out to the point where i'm anxious to get off the ride rather than continue the right. You're anxious to continue the right. Yeah i'm looking to continue to do like. I do my podcast. My podcast is going to continue long after off the radio good. That's that's going to be my thing couple of times a week cast. Who knocked me off as the most downloads on your podcast. Or did i get it back when i interview. You got it back when you interviewed me. The most listened to podcasts culture. Podcast and how many roughly have their manner. Viewing me what's up. How many roughly have you done. I've done ninety five all right. I wanna know when someone eclipses me because then it's gonna be round three. Yes i need to for my own ego. Have the top spot. A close second by the way was the bryan cranston podcast. Well the fact that. I have anything over bryan. Even temporarily might be big moment in my life. Exactly that coming up next. Hey i'll tell you what gilbert arenas said something really interesting on some podcast or some ways in zero eight zero and. I don't even know where we got this. But it's interesting. He says the question is would. Michael jordan have won a title with those cleveland. Lebron teams in other words. If you subbed in jordan for lebron and he's got a really interesting answer. Plus bill platform is going to join us at one thirty mason ireland seventeen. Espn yeah many of you sliding into my dm's. All night. I just love mason and ireland. I wanted say that listener for many years. First time ever in your dm's you guys are great. Hashtag rams house ramle stuff in. Dm so yeah you can always dm. Actually you can also add. Don't wanna give that one on escape out my. Yeah no no. You'll use to give out your g mail address. Yeah it's may it. Yeah whenever that. Venice mesa gmail.com. You can email me to then. It's mesa gmail.com i so This is interesting first of all you get to your passing information because that's fan. This is really interesting. So i couldn't figure out why so many people were asking me. Wha what's up with. Trevor bauer and the dodgers and it jeff passan about an hour ago. Put the pie. Jeff's not one of those guys that throws stuff up on a wall and to see if it sticks was so he's legit. I jeff wrote this. The dodgers are monitoring the market for right hander. Trevor bauer and could be a player depending on the price. Sources tell espn focus for the dodgers. Now remains a right handed infield but bauer in the dodgers remain a possibility as this market develops then then alden gonzalez who re tweeted passes tweet and writes this. Only mookie betts. Mookie betts is currently on the books beyond the twenty twenty two season though cody bellinger and walker bueller will be expensive by then. Bauer would blow them past the collective bargaining threshold in twenty twenty one but a short term high average value. Deal is always appealing for them for a talent like that. So let's connect some dots here. Yup trevor bowers from valencia. Yup went to ucla. He is the reigning league. Cy young award winner. He was unbelievable last year. The market's depressed by a pandemic. Nobody's really offering. Dj lemay. hugh got a six year deal. Yeah by the way just just in there. I was surprised. George springer. Six years one eighty. That's that seems lower than i expected but no pitchers have gotten those long deals that i hate the six seven. C samatha type deals if trevor. Bauer doesn't have a market for a long term deal like nobody's offering five six years. The dodgers will get interested in a hurry every big free agent that signed the dodgers have. Were always interested if they could get him on. Andrew friedman works on the deals. He's comfortable given four. Yup he he two or three. He'll do heartbeat sure but he's comfortable giving for. I think this is a real possibility i. I'm not saying it's going to happen. But hey were five weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting and things. Michael brantley it. There was a rumor he was going to sign with the blue jays. Jaser really going big. It's over he signed with the astros the show and came back to him and said if you signed yet so deals are happening this week. I think bauer could sign in the next seventy two hours. And if he does. I think it could be with the dodgers. I'm not saying anything but it makes sense to me. Let me throw you something. This is the actual dodgers starting rotation and the question is who do you actually up. So buehler's your one kershaw sure to julio maria who's fantastic and the postseason your three. I would assume david price nineties. Yeah you're this is what i'm saying. Euless you to say. Julio hulu is your. I would assume david prices your four decimation five right. Isn't it overkilled at trevor cy. Young award either off either. Julio destined goes to the bullpen and by the way in the world series was unbelievable as a reliever money. So you could turn them into ganja wants to start but just same thing with dustin may doesn't mean julio he is really weren't post-season starters. I know they started some games. Peach started two games in the postseason but they were primarily used in relief role in relief. Yeah yea they were putting together. Those twenty seven outs as a little different. The postseason history reagan's trevor bauer. Just i mean it's just a padres dodgers arms race. Yeah in the padres intended the padres have sneakily gone about their business in. The postseason added joe moscow of the other day whose i i think it's a totally respectable starter. They they traded for blake's now They also traded for who's other started that they got blake's now jaws grow the guy who speak for the dodgers the darvish yu darvish That's right who who was coming off a really good year with the cubs. People joke about yu darvish but he actually had a really good year with the cubs this past year and the dodgers really the bullpen is going to look very very similar to the bullpen. We saw last year. I mean kenley you know is in there somewhere may not be the closer blake training. They signed he feels more like a closer possibility. Corey can able that. They got from milwaukee they signed. You still have risen grabher. All you still victor gonzales. You still have joe kelley. They signed dylan flora. They still have adam. Clark they still have scott alexander. And now he's gonna be addie morrow you could be adding dustin may or julio so you think they'll be they'll be okay hey plachy coming up tell the gilbert arenas oh yeah so gilbert arenas appeared on the complex say that lindsay the complex sports podcast complex is a sports website. The complex sports podcasts. That's okay complex. Sports podcast and listen to what he said about about Lebron james the reason that i feel lebron's to go is because during pressure times he still makes the actual right decision versus what us fans and the public wants him to do you know. And that's what separates know him from jordan. Kobe where you give jordan. Kobe mills caffeine's. They wouldn't have made the pile. They wouldn't have made it to the championship. Because jordan wanna just average sixty to hell with it so he's saying that those calves teams with jordan would not have been as successful as they wore with. Lebron what do you think disagree. I think jordan and by the way those calves teams still had kyrie irving and kevin love down three headed monster. That's why they made it all those years. When is that the teams that he's talking about the or is he talking about lebron's first stint in cleveland because those were some pretty bad team but he only those teams lindsay only made it to the finals. Once that was that team that made it once with with all those. Lebron only made it to the finals. Once before left for my are and and he got swept by the spurs. But that lindsay's right. That team was awful. That was the team with mike. Brown coached them and they had booby gibson. And a bunch of other gifts and lebron basically put that team on his back. But i think jordan and kobe would have found a way to get to the finals. They were just forces of nature. I mean if you go down the top five or six scores in nba history. Yes all those guys got to the finals. I think the point is i. By the way. I agree with you. I disagree with gilbert arenas but it is true that lebron james is a guy who is completely different from kobe and completely different from michael jordan. He does more often as we pointed out here led the league insists he does far more often. Defer make others look. Good is much more sharing the basketball. He's a lot more like magic johnson. Then he is like kobe. Bryant or michael jordan agree. not only. Do i agree. I'll i'll put this out there. I grew up watching magic. And kareem. Who i think. Are you know two of the top ten players in nba history. I covered kobe and shaq their whole careers. Lebron's the most complete basketball player i've ever seen ever there. There are other other people that do things better than lebron kobe. You could argue was a better score than lebron same jordan shack had had more force he was more dominant just using power. But there's never been the combination of size speed and smarts that lebron james has ever in the history of the league. And he's he's a package of skills that we have never seen ever. And that's why i think he's in a class by himself. He just does everything not he doesn't have weakness right. he's not just about scoring. he's about everything but you know. Pbc can't shoot three so he added threes to his game shooting thirty eight percent this year. Defense he's an excellent defender when he wants to be the best. Passer on the lakers. Right now he's and he's the consummate leader us look. He's played his whole career in the finals. So i see for me. He's an and. I know. I didn't see bill russell and i didn't see elgin baylor and all those guys spot for me mike For me lebron. James is the best basketball player. I have seen in my lifetime. I have no problem with that statement. And i will just say. He's the most complete player i've ever seen he has. He has a package of skills. Kobe might have a better offensive game than lebron. Kobe was underrated defensively but kobe. Passer lebron was yup. Kobe would lead with an iron fist. Lebron kind of brings everybody into the tent. What lebron has done off the court. He doesn't get enough credit for. He's the most complete basketball player ever coming up next for you. Bill plachy is gonna come on and hang out with us. He's from the l. a. Times of course legendary columnist And then john at one forty the weirdest way to burn your house down a british woman almost did it. Do you know that story now okay. That's coming up for you at one. Forty mason ireland seventeen. Espn so guy. We love to read in the la times. Virtually every day always on it does plachy. Is here a bill. You doing man. I told you don't sleep on this. Golf mcveigh thing. Your bill glad you. I'm glad you brought it up. Because i've been with u. lockstep. I think they need to move on from off. The question is for guys like me and you are. We pipe dreaming. he's a gigantic cap hit. It would be monsters the millions it even if they if they can trade him which i think is hard to do. He'd still be a twenty two million dollar cap. Hit is what you and. I are advocating even realistic. Yeah i think in any other nation maybe not but the rams they've done this stuff before we traded for jalen ramsey betrayal marketing way. Back in. I know. I know but they have done they. They rose from the hot lowest draft. Pick ever to get the number one pick and they tried everything away. I don't know. I just know this shawn watson available. I know that. And i know a couple of quarterbacks are going to be available no actually. I'm just. I'm just not i don't count less. Need out with with for anything. I don't know why. I don't know why sean mcvay would say what he said. And come out and actually agree with you. I've been talking about. Why would he say it unless he thought there was a chance they can move on from it now because there's a welcome back you don't part of the ramle ashtec ramdas. I love the rams and dig it older. I actually bought personal seat licenses for next year at sofi stadium. And i i. There's no i don't wanna shine. People on the shawn watson thing is a total pipe dream. I don't see any way that could possibly work. Obviously miami's got the lead on that one. But i do think when it comes to the nfl and when it comes to making things happen less need head to have young talent. They have young offensive. Challenge mean they can. They can do a lot of things i just. I just think i'm not counting aranda. There have been so bull and even brazen green was now gun in the substance of stuff. They've tried to even build an even scrawny building a stadium in the town that hadn't had. Nfl in twenty two years. Yeah they keep doing the impossible. You're right pill and and we're talking to build pal bill. Here's my here's my wild idea. Tell me if it's ridiculous. The other team to shawn watson has been linked to adam. Schefter started it. And it's it's got some traction is he could be traded to the jets. The jets have a ridiculous amount of draft capital. They have cap room. They could trade for the while. You're not saying you're not saying. Bring sam darnold back. I am you know. I don't think it's why don't you like it. I just don't think he's. I don't think he could be a big time. Quarterback golf recall two point. Oh that'd be in run sam and plus built. We tend to write out off guys way too early. You know josh. Allen didn't emerge until year three. I mean it takes some time for guys to develop. Yeah i don't know. I haven't seen enough from san but it would be a good. Pr thing for them. Would you want to be judged by your first two columns bill your first two columns my first my first aid stories for the la times were totally rewritten by the desk bills. Devin a bill. If you went back eight in a row eight hundred were were totally redone. Bill if you went back and listened to the first three weeks of the mason ireland show in nineteen ninety four euros so bad that mason. I know i don't alternate career. Mississippi you guys back then. Back in san diego. i did. Listen you guys back. Then i lived in san diego. The time you will have your was at the beginning was bad. Hey so let's vivid for a second to the dodgers of you've been advocating. They re signed justin turner. You think it's important because of the way the domino's have moved you now think it's likely the just turner's coming back. Yeah i think with toronto. Made a big move for george springer. Toronto is gonna be atlantic spot right. Yeah i think that. I think yes and i think the fact. I think it's not lost on anybody. Who was one of the players at tommy. Lasorda's moral service. Yesterday justin turner. Don't don't think but don't forget that he was one of the the he was on. The two players who were there who were invited was an invitation. Only deal he was there that means something. Yeah i think. I think i think. In a perfect scenario andrew freeman would not bring him back. he's kind of goes against what. Andrew friedman believes in replaceable players younger players better contract but i think justin turner supersedes that as as we've talked about before the show and i think that i think freeman knows at see i think in the case he he was at how you gonna let a guy go days after he was at the funeral. One of the few players at the funeral of your of your of your most revered ambassador. Bill i think kika is is gone. I i think he's gone. But i think marcus simeon is a guy that they're gonna sign. I think they're gonna wind up with both justin turner and marcus simeon. Do you think yeah. I think that's very possible. And i think do their be. There's going to be the best team in baseball again next year if they get justin turner. I think it'd be the best team in baseball once again next year by talks about toronto being so stacked and so loaded. But that's that's a massive lineup. The dodgers they're just on cruise control right now. But i think the turnover thing is is going to be the next domino to fall and i think because trump with now the braves are still in the running for understand. Yeah but i do. But i do think again. I think his ties to the community. I think he i think mentally the dodgers no. He's more viable here than anywhere else. I think he knows he has more value here than anywhere else if you make some more money someplace else. We're not going to build plachy from the l. a. times you can read bill almost every day. La times dot com. He's he's written more good columns for that paper than anyone alive. Bill when you look at when you look at the the lakers and kind of the way the west to stacking up. I love this team. I'm biased. Because i call borough these games but i think they're gonna. I think the brooklyn nets are coming out of the east. I think that that move. They made to get. James harden moves them to the front mason. Thinks it's not gonna work. He thinks there's only one ball and those three guys aren't going to be able to share it. What do you think oh no. I think you're right john. I actually watched the net before the laker game before. Listen to other night to milwaukee bucks. It's gonna work man. Just add car first off. His first james harden's first game was a triple double. How many points durant scoring game in hard guy triple double forty two to forty two. You tell me. He can't share the ball. You tell me they won't work together. You tell me car. We won't be bought in now. We know this from some players. Or that i have all of the nba terry bill. It's honeymoon period. No with no but the honeymooners real. This is real. This is a real wedding. Will marriage the meal days. I was gonna ask you why. Why do you come on the show and always agree with john and disagree with me as you're wrong you never take side on anything. I think the point is that europe pretty much wrong. A lot of the later on by the way we're going to do we're gonna do the thing. I love about john. The most and the thing i hate about john the most part will be longer building. We'll be long. He's going to do the same for me. What do you love most about mason in ireland. And what do you hate most about mason in ireland. I love most. You guys have been there together forever. That continuity is huge. You got sound like an old. Mary couple talking to talking to each other. That that is on the radio today. That is huge. That that just doesn't happen. And i hope y'all don't don't take for granted no definitely don't so long the people we work for quite some time so we don't know so what are you hate most about us. You usually full of crap. Now that act that you just the the nextradio the fact that you share it is tremendous tremendous in congrats to both of you. You should not take that for granted. Cool i you know what i think. We need more people that come on and compliment us love that i get a coffee. You say you went fishing building nowhere else to go nowhere else. What else did i say. Do not exclusively compliment for the record. Not unsolicited. I read your column about a staple center and how weird it is to have nobody in the bill. Did you actually have you been allowed to go inside. Staples center will gosh steve. I wrote the column brought their a hope to close outside the building in writing about inside. No no yeah. I mean it was. It was hard to. It's hard to watch john. What do you think absolute Worst part about what we're doing. Bill i i love the fact that their games. I happy that we're providing a form of entertainment for for basketball fans. I hate that there are no fans i mean. I can't tell you much aid. It it is. And i know the players hate it too. It is part of the game. It's hard hard games are boring. there's no wrong. There's no momentum. There's no inspiration. There's no nothing. That's what i thought. I think lord standard shipping. Mvp of of the team this year for for announcing that there's somebody there ladies and gentlemen have saved thrive home. Lt who you're talking to wasn't surely one eighty gentleman out there somewhere. I mean it's it's hilarious but it's it's really weird is i do know what the caller was. That is so striking. The lakers are the entertainment team of Sports most entertaining night in sports is or leaker game at all the country into have it be like. This is just bizarre. Yeah not the same but Bill i think the one thing we will get back when if and when and hopefully it soon we get fans back. I don't think everyone anyone will take this stuff for granted anymore. I think we will have a great appreciation of what it's like to be communal to be together to experience these sporting events i mean billion. I've talked about this. It's the best part of our job. Is that sports. Brings people together of all walks like. We had an inauguration today at a laker game. You can't tell who's a republican who's a democrat. It doesn't matter you're rooting for the same matter. And it's something we took for granted and they talk about. Mvp's we we've learned through the pandemic. Gimme as fans of the sports world and the standard ovation. I guarantee the players will give the fans of standing ovation when they come back yet. They're they're terribly terribly missed. Yeah i just like. I hate to cut you off but i'm going to cut off. I would say that wait a minute. We invited him. What if compliment. Cates continue continue bill. Don't you got all right as always appreciate you giving us your time and coming on man stays joying our stupidity document got. There is a bill plachy times. I like i used to not like him. And then all the sudden. I started liking him. Why did you not like them. I always thought he was just like i always thought he was just kind of negative about everything. But now i think probably i'm that guy that guy that negative about everything i mean not to me. Okay i know i know. Yeah so. Yeah i no. I think that you're i say because that's our three o'clock hour today. Yeah i coming up next for you the weirdest way to burn down your house. A british woman almost did it in somebody who expected a pardon today and did not get it. Wait a minute everybody got one no no. They were not handed out like candy bars today. Not everybody got one also to clock today. Don't forget our lakers. Back phrase that pays we will give you the first part of the phrase it to the second part of the phrase at two fifteen your chance to win at the bottom of the hour to thirty. And we've got a great price package which includes one hundred dollar lakers store. Gift card and autograph lakers basketball and you qualify to win a grand which were given away on friday mason. Ireland seven ten. Espn so what i say is you know we have that Jingle espn seven tan. Los angeles sparks. Yeah we use it all the time. I think it's time to find another jingle that we can sort of mix in. But how do we find it lindsey. How do we find that new. Catchy jingle that is going to show up at all. Chris paralysis fantastic imaging stuff and i think that was a once in a lifetime. Deal don't expected to happen again. Oh come on. Somebody's going to do it. Somebody will deliver. I'm sure of it. Can we give out the voicemail line and see your can. We put out the voicemail line and male line is anymore. Oh god that's so sad. Well send us an mp three tweet us an mp three at venice mesa at la ireland. Wanna find something else. That morales can use though. I love the jingle as it is and by the way linda you said all the tangles were bad. Technically this was a bad jingle which we turned into a good one so sometimes the bad ones can agree. I think it was a i. I think it was a great jingle. Start you do okay. I think we mocked when it first came on all right so john. This is a weird story ready. Yes okay so a lady. In britain her name is helga. Agarwal which name. I completely made up helga at her wall. Pretty good made up name. Yeah she bought a candle and she put in her house in the candle almost burner place down it exploded. She says it was scary at the time. But funny looking back and you know what the candle was. No it was that candle. That gwyneth paltrow made this supposed to smell like a vagina. I do remember that candle. Yeah that candle blew up. it blew up. It absolutely blew up by the way. That candle has a thing. It's here's what guana says on her fancy goop thing. Hate that goop thing. Just lisa read goop. No yeah. I just think it's garbage. Anyway she says sent notes including geranium citrus bergamot and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with damascus. Rose and ambrish seed. That's according to her online goop store. Where she scamming people with a candle that smells like a vagina subject. Don't you think it's a total scam. Yeah i would not buy a vagina. Candle queue up that line. I was gonna say. Specifically morales is that he went. What so you know who didn't get pardoned today and was expecting a pardon as as he pardoned like one hundred and fifty people he did. So this guy you don't make that cut you've got to have no hope there's a guy that hired a goon to kill carole baskin. Do you remember. who am i talking about. Joe exotic joe exotic is prison is imprisoned down in florida and he had a limo waiting outside the prison because he was sure he was get pardoned. And i mean. These pardons seem to be pretty random. I guess he pardon little wayne. Low wayne exactly. There were random parts. And i think joe exotic thought he was going to get one and honestly he sort of hired goon to hire carole baskin. There was kind of a weird exchange of of money. That might have happened in. The guy never actually got close to carole. Baskin should joe exotic actually be in prison. I don't know enough about it. I thought after watching tiger king that there were several people on that thing. That should be in prison. Here's the interesting thing. The shine has kind of worn off of that tiger king. Fifteen minutes or up and aren't there to movies in the works about it. Two movies in the work out to the movies missed their window. Like get back. i keep mckinnon's involved with one of them came. Mckinnon is producing in place. Carole baskin and one of them. I'll watch anything kate. Mckinnon does me too. It's going to be a miniseries. i think on netflix. Speaking of of miniseries a documentary series. I think the embargo is now lifted on the tiger. Woods documentary part two right. Oh yeah so. I think. I recommend this documentary. I think it's on. Hbo max Hbo oh max. It's confusing but i figured that out. And the first part of the tiger woods documentary the thing that jumps out at me is the whole winnebago story so earl woods when tiger was growing up and was young and learning golf had a winnebago and they showed it like parked by the court side to golf course and he had a steady stream of women coming in. And out of that winnebago. Now you think about that as a kid. You see your dad doing that. Isn't that your destiny. Aren't you destined to do exactly the same thing. Which is what tiger did right and then it becomes systemic right. And you and tiger watch earl. Probably lie to his mom and then he ended up lion to that documentary. The first part is all about golf. Except for this part you're talking about and then the second part is all about the fall like how he fell. And then i had forgotten by the way would have huge deal. It was like the way we watched that press conference and how the world kind of stopped that was a gigantic gigantic press conference. We all watched that from beginning dan well and there was. There's amazing things in this like. It was kind of like we have this story yesterday. With jeered porter. The mets guy. And that's happened in two thousand sixteen in. Espn had the story in two thousand seventeen and they elected not to run it. In the case of tiger the national enquirer had the story two years before they ran it. Yeah and the thing that just goes to show how absolute power corrupts. The national enquirer also owned a fitness magazine fitness. Yup and basically tigers team cut a deal. Tiger will do your cover and do it exclusive fitness story with you if you kill the story and they did it and that was the perkins pancake hostess. Who and this is the weird part so tiger and eland would go to this perkins pancake restaurant all the time and he got a he he just fell in love with this hostess and so he ended up hooking up with the hostess at a place where he and eland would go to eat breakfast. All the time. I mean won't point. They say tiger was living seven. Different lives at the same time you know he would have. It was kind of the girl in every port thing right right but it wasn't just hookups. Like he would have actual relationships where they were sharing and they were intimate in what they said. It wasn't just about sex. It was intimate in what they said. And all these women felt that they were the only one in the world to tiger and he was able to have like multiple of these relationships going on at the same time. It wasn't just a hookup. It was an actual relationship and the ability he had to compartmentalize. Like if you were doing that. Imagine if you were if you were living that life or in that case seven lives and then you're still winning every tournament. You're still like he could just turn it off when he got to the golf course i would be like my head would be in a million places and you saw when it all came tumbling down that his head went to a million place but while it was going on he was able to compartmentalize it and it was it all it. All kind of worked for him. Did you know anything about that. Whole navy seal training. He would go to this navy seal training and then we'd go to kill house and they said yeah. We could do just about anything to tiger. As long as we didn't touch his hands so they would like fire rubber bullets in him. I mean i. I never knew about that. Oh i did yeah. Espn wrote a whole. I think it was right thompson. Wrote a whole long piece on it and the thing that struck me is when you when you reach a certain level of fame and tiger certainly got there when he was young. You don't everything's given to you you don't like you don't really pay for anything in life and one of the stories was when he used to go work out with the navy seals. One day they said. Hey let's all go to lunch. And they went to this lynch place around the corner and you would think you know. These seals have been leading tiger workout with them for like two weeks. And you know they don't let anybody else do that. And the bill came and tiger not only didn't offer to pay it. He didn't even throw any money in for what he and it was because he was just so use to somebody else. Picking up the tab and even Retail you could tell stories of when it all came crumbling down. He called her and said my lawyers are going to call you. Get as much as yeah. Yeah and the the interesting thing about that is. He's telling her to get as much of his money. Yes yeah. He didn't even see that. That was weird. He's he was saying. you know. get as much as you because what that told me was. He just didn't have control of his own life. The surreal thing is when he was having this relationship with rachel. You could tell who's probably the most famous of the the women that he had relationships with and at one point the national enquirer. Wrote a story about rachel you could tell and tiger in so tiger explained to elon. There's nothing going on. It's a misunderstanding. She happened to be at this place at this time play. She runs the club with my friends. And rachel you could tell got on the phone with ellen and spent a half hour explaining to her how there wasn't any relationship between her entire doubling down on the lie a half hour of her explaining basically a total lie to to elland. And you know what's weird is. I came away from that tiger woods documentary feeling like feeling kinda guilty about all the jokes i made about tiger because there was a real person there who is going through unbelievable personal trauma and after seeing it. I think i will route harder for tiger. Wow did i ever asked me. Because i thought you were going to the opposite. I thought you were going to say like you always do. There is consequences for behavior like this and everything that happened to him. He deserved but we saw the police say that we saw the price that he paid right. I mean he paid an enormous price. Amlie lost his family lost his way and the idea of coming back to win. The masters was just now. I think those other golfers crumbled around him you know like they showed that one thing. They all got to the twelfth hole at augusta and it was all tied and everybody into the water into the water. Speak into the water and then tigers puts it on the green and runs ahead of all those dudes anyway worth watching. It's a two part documentary. It's on hbo. Max it's called tiger. It's created and directed by alex. Gibney the guy who did the smartest guys in the room. And i think you'll have a new. Understanding of who tiger woods is as a person and what has happened in his life. How it all fell apart so coming up next for you lakers back to back. Fraser pays chance to win a great price package and a chance to win a thousand dollars on friday. Plus dan graziano will join us for me. Spn talk a little bit about this. Weekend's nfc afc championship. Game as mahomes. Gonna play all that stuff. And a little bit about jared. Goff's relationship with sean mcvay mason ireland seventeen espn.

HR 1: How did the Lakers look last night?

"Thanks for listening. Thanks left for tuning and we appreciate you very much and especially during this time of the season when we are competing with coast and they play all christmas music. We will give you some. We will give you some so john justin bieber if you're controlling it but we will give you some. So here's the deal. I've made a decision. I wanna see if. I can get you on board for this all right. Do you think we can do a show without mentioning cove it. Can it be done because i talked to. Somebody wanted to guest says it. We can't control that right. We can't control that but we've we've only got oh shoot. Matthew berry had covid right. So he's going to have to talk about gay or we're going to have to ask him about it. we have to. We have to check and see how he's deal. Yeah let's not even ask him. Let's not use the c word. We don't see where today bill plachy about how he was feeling yesterday. It's true that's true. Exactly okay. she had cova months ago. So we're going to covert free cova. Three hey what do you think. Last night john the terrible third quarter then. I was shocked at what happened in the fourth. Quarter they rallied back It was a great night for cow. Kuzina let me tell you. Some there was a stretch from about five minutes to go in the first quarter through all of the second quarter. Where if they play defense like that. Forget about it. Nobody's going to be able to. I mean their defense was so good for those seven sixteen. Seventeen minutes. I i was stunned. They just suffocated the sun's just. I mean the the sons had trouble getting one shot off when they did the lakers. Grab the rebound and just took off down on the other end. Yeah the held phoenix to one thousand nine points in the second quarter. That's that stretch that you're a your day. Went from being ten down to fourteen up like it was nothing and sure in the third quarter. When lebron an ad sat out they blew the lead and then coups mma and teach brought him back and just took over the game in the fourth but this team has the potential to be not. Just good but great. I think that depending on issues in terms of since. I can't say the seaward does yet depending on health issues. They could flirt with sixty wins. They keep everybody healthy. Okay so let me see if it's too early for this straight to the title. It's not it's not too early. no i love that. They're the team to beat. I completely agree with you. They are so frigging good now. I was just watching the jump in nick. Fidel was on there Who's a good writer. Recollect for somebody know who does he writes he writes for. Espn dot com. Okay so far. Warriors reporter. the subject came up of t h t and rachel nickell said. Are you buying the hype. And what nick for dell said is there's one guy that goes crazy every year during the preseason and everybody gets on the hype train and it's like whoo it's not real. That's what he said about. You can say that. Here's the thing. I picked the lakers to win the title. Without t h t. Yeah t h he onus. I i'll take the other side of that equation. I think he's playing himself into being the first guard off the bench. I guard off the bench. Yeah i think he's in. Michael thinks that too. I think he's run himself right to the front of the line from the second unit comes in like over caruso over everybody like. Who's if you're starting now. I could be dead wrong frank. Vogel deci to places. We're just speculating. Here if you if you start dinner shooter in case ep. That means that. You got wes matthews. You've got caruso you got ta got a whole bunch of choices to bring in off the bench. I would go. You think it's possible it could be. I think he's playing like this. You gotta keep trying. I mean here's great although unison so hard to judge right so because he did a lot of his damage during you know what essentially was garbage time which was anytime after the first quarter he had a shot in the second quarter or hey. I don't know if you can find this shot. But when we were describing him. I thought he made me think of kobe. He was a reverse layup at the basket where he just drove. Right down the middle and reversed it over his head and there's no way he could see the rim from where he shot it any any. Just put it up in. And i mean he has at least one moment like that every game play bass i gotta find it. I just love the way ireland says. Hey can you find this one shy. He's like my exact words were. I don't know if you have it. But we're we're incredibly shorthanded at the radio station so i assume we have anything there last night. We nobody there last night for the whole first quarter. We had no net sound. It was just me and michael talking. You know. I didn't realize until i was watching last night. Billy mack in that. You're not travelling for any of the road games. They're not traveling for any of the road game. So i assume everybody's calling everything off of some master feed from the arena. Mace the tnt guys aren't traveling no one is trump. They're doing every game from from atlanta wherever the hell air. Yeah wherever they live. Kevin harlan setup in his basement in minnesota or kansas city relived. Wow yeah that's crazy all right. So here's taylor horton tucker in the second quarter. Here's t h t driving down the middle reverse layup. Good that at a little kobe in it. I don't even know how he saw the basket. Here's booker driving the other way. I find myself saying that once a game about tiger. So i mean nick for dell can say is. There's one guy like this every year. It doesn't matter and maybe the lakers keep him under wraps for another year. But this is what kuzma look like when he was on the summer league team as a rookie. Yani scored thirty points in the summer league championship game and everybody said well. you know. there's a guy like this every year in summer league that you know he was first team all summer league and then coups came out and broke all sorts of lakers rookie records including the rookie record for threes. So here's the thing. I had a good night last night. Yeah leaving for what eh for. Whatever reason a bunch of the fan base no longer a fan of kuzma. For whatever reason what reason do you think that it is not twitter. Nine oh god. He deleted himself from twitter at one point. Yeah because they they were so much crap. Yeah they were killing them. I'm trying to remember why but it was. It was a situation where he had he had reached out to try and do something positive. Of course because twitter is a incestuous hellhole. they all came back with well. Why don't you make more threes. And then we'll help your charity. I think he was like a pit of hell. Isn't it yeah. I think he was trying to you. Know he's been very active in trying to ways raise awareness for the water situation flos so it may have been something like he was trying to do something nice and everybody just well. Why don't you improve. Your three point percentage. That would be nice and he got you. You've heard this right. You've heard this fans you've seen this on twitter haven't you well. I think there's a debate over whether or not they should extend coups because he's in his contract year. I don't think they shouldn't. I don't think they have to. i think. Just wait and see how this plays out. But i'm a huge fan. They lose that game last night without him. I mean he was really good. I think that their second unit if it has kouzmin and i don't know how you guarded. Here's why i think people went south on kouzmin or some people in south and cousteau. It's because we and everybody sort of promoted him as the third best player on the ad lebrun ad and kuzina was going to be the third best player on the those eight probably high expectations. Too high for kyle kuzma. Because he's not ever going to be that guy. I don't think he's ever going to be the opposite. Helaire off the top of your head. Who is who is third in scoring in the lakers last year behind. Lebron y the way you're asking it sounds like it was kuzin. Yeah yeah. I mean he averaged twelve points a game i. I don't know if there's much more room when you've got both those guys. Average and thirty. Kcpt league cosmic can be the third player on championship. You think it'd be the third best player this year. He could be. I think it's between him. Casey p mark assaults going to get into that argument now assured or could be in that argument by the way the one guy who and i know he injured his ankle but he was the one guy that sort of it'll take a little time. He's the one guy that sorta didn't fit last night. You don't understand who her schreuder. It's like they're not. They're not accustomed to playing together yet. The pieces and nor should they be but the pieces don't quite fit intruder. I thought was sort of odd man out of the guy that didn't wasn't integrated into what was going on. Because he's a new guy. I actually thought he looked good but he tweeted ankle. And so my guess is he'll ankle's bothering him in any way you just sit him martin tomorrow night. Yeah not play tomorrow night. But actually thought he had his moments. The one thing he's going to have to figure out is. Lebron led the league in assists last year because he was the point guard and dinner shooter by definition is a point guard. So he's got to figure out how to play with lebron win there on the court together because lebron's probably going to have the ball shooter. Average nineteen points a game. Lash right right. The sixth man of the year last year in the nba was mantras. Herrell and second in the voting was shrewder and lakers got them both. Yeah yeah All right so. I want to ask you something next and this is going to require complete and total speculation from you and i want you to be able to do it without saying well. I don't you just take a shot at what's the question. The question is what will more often than not be the lakers closing line-up more often than not the lakers closing lineup. By the way if you want to jump in here. Eight seven. Seven seven ten. Espn anytime hear anything you want to react to. You can jump on the phone. Mesa and ireland seventeen. Espn yon john. You know who this is. Let me hear it. karen carpenter no that is pentatonic. Do you know who pentatonic says their german. No they're one of them acoustic singing groups. Everything you hear there is the pentatonic singers making all the noise in the background from pitch. Perfect or glee. Exactly i'm surprised you don't know who they are. You were like a big choir. Weren't you in your high school choir. I wish that was a dream with your beautiful singing voice. I wish our won the mason ireland choir. Good this is terry. What are you talking about this though. No mcclinton quincy. This is not great. I it is dope man. Okay so we were talking about the The lakers here and we know john. Do you feel throughout the starting lineup is going to be. Just guess okay. I think we'll lebron locks. Yep i think mark assaults gonna start. Because he's such a good passer and he does any defends well and he's just i think you want to start him then. My guess is shorter or bath us. One of the two. They started kuzina at guard last night. But i still think coups is gonna come off the bench. Yes i think. Caruso is going the bench i think t h. He's gonna come off the bench so it's the other guard spot that i'm not sure about so. Let's say they start schreuder. I don't i if i had guess. Duck your question schreuder in case ep. But it could be sure and matthews. And then casey p caruso come off the bench with coups t h t and mantras herald center. And that that gets you ten deep and then markeith morris is kind of your wildcard. He's your eleventh. Yeah so lebron. Ad kcpt schreuder ghazal. You're a better question is who are. They playing like for example if they're playing denver denver as yokich yup the guy so the closing line-up has to include either gosol or herald. Probably guess all not foul trouble or if he's healthy now if you're playing the warriors they don't have a center. If you're playing the clippers they really don't have a center unless they're playing zoo bots and he's not a big score so then you can go. You could have herald finished the game. You could have markeith. Morris finished the game you could. Have you know lebron play center. He's six on uses genuine candidate to finish the game. Yeah i think this is a genuine candidate to start. Yeah i do too. I absolutely think the starting lineups gonna switch around the two big questions are what do you do at t h just is he a guy like if you look at kobe second year in the league. Yes kobe came off. The bench played a little but very rarely had thirty or forty minute games. Maybe t h t is that this year. Maybe a twenty minute. A game plays five minutes quarter. And that's it. But i think he's gonna play and i think there's a chance he could be out there on some nights at the end of the game could be on out there. I do think that could. Wow so john. I did a little one of those Video promos you know. How do those video promos all the time seven ten. Espn and i was wearing. The hoodie i was wearing was a kobe. Hoodie with the eight on its side. So it's one that's great sweatshirt and twenty four and a two on the side. Exactly where did we get. That i know was given to us by free for free but i don't know like people always ask me. Where did i get that. And how can they get it. and i. i don't even know i don't know. But tommy lamb does so before we tommy carlo know janice those guys know so we don't screw it up. It's a website and they sell them so await for one of our social media team too because they they did that because they did. They gave us those sweatshirts specifically so this what happened. They were trying to get him to go viral right. And you can't run later. Yeah you can't remember where they came from from the hoop berry. That sounds right. Yeah that sounds right But it is a really cool hoodie players. Have to ensure yeah. It's it's really cool. It's really cool all right so last night. I leonard was on jimmy kimmel and i think that's an unlikely guests. Jimmy kimmel the book. He actually did so one of the most interesting things. Everybody knows the apple story with coli right. I don't know that one time. He showed up at at a team dinner and he had sixteen apples and he gave each teammate. An apple and then he ate his with the knife and fork. You never heard that story never heard it was really heard. That's very okay. So he was asked about the whether or not the apple story was real last night. Here's what he told kimmel. There are a lot of odd stories about. I want to ask about one of them. Because it's very odd and the story goes like this. You were at a team. Dinner with the spurs when he played for the spurs everyone was eating. You didn't order anything instead. You brought twelve apples to the table. Read apples you sat there with a knife and fork and each apple and said it's apple time apple time with this story. It's not true. Okay up. Which we but. I didn't pick my uncles and bring them to dinner and eat them with a knife and fork. Yeah no dude dude. Funny last night on kimmel. I'm telling you the first time it in person. He's playing in san antonio and michael set up. And i were set up on the court right and clay and pay played youth basketball together so koiwa. It's like two hours for the game. Quiet walks over to the table. Where mike mike are sitting next to each other any sticks out his hand to michael and michael stands says. Hey how are you man. Great to see. I'm proud of you. You're doing great. He goes because you know ireland. And i go. I stand up go. Hey why and i stick my hand out and shake hands with him. He's got giant hands by the way. And i said equal. I pleasure to meet you. I'm a big fan. He nods in michael says. Hey quite big say hi to your Folks for me and keep it up and coin nods at michael and he walks away. We had a whole conversation. And i never said a word. Wow wow yeah no. He's an by the way the only reason that interview work last night. His jimmy kimmel so good so good note from management. The website had to stop selling those sweatshirts. They didn't have the rights. Oh man now you don't wear that anymore when you're going to be like hash money. That hoodie all right coming up next for you. John lindsay and i are getting rich. Explain that plus who else got rich this year. That's coming up next for you. And then at one. Forty steve fezzet. Fez will be with us with all the gambling advice for this weekend and and his best bet of the week mason and ireland seventeen. Espn he was on saturday night. Live this week. did you see him. For springsteen i did yeah. Yeah yeah and i think that's the best version of santa claus is coming to town when you say you like it better than the beeps. Do the be spills. Tell santa shake it baby shake i will take springsteen over the beeps i will on that particular care. How about every day and twice on sunday all right so john you probably don't you may remember this 'cause you mocked me for it. You mocked me. Because i'm always looking for the next big thing Lindsay is also in on the ground floor of what now has become a big thing. Bitcoin is twenty three thousand dollars a coin now. A bitcoin is worth twenty three thousand dollars. Do you remember when you mocked me over bitcoin. I'm still gonna make you try and turn one of your bitcoin today and see if you can get the twenty three thousand. I could sell it right now. Okay do it at least go and hire a bitcoin. Bitcoin and you take it out out of the bank just like you would with any other cash. Okay if i do that. I'll believe in bitcoin. But while i will sell at this point it's already twenty three thousand dollars. Some people think it will someday be one hundred thousand dollars. Well then you should keep it. Yeah exactly. that's what. I'm talking about all right so talk about rich. I don't care what you don't get though. What do you mean. You don't believe it like i literally before right so when you go type of currency correct. I think that you should win. Mason pays for something with bitcoin and see him with that particular thing in his hands. I will believe in bitcoin. You can so far. It's only bought a lot of things with bitcoin all right. We'll just do it in front of me win. And then i'll believe it next time i see okay. I'll be that good. How record it. Yeah i'll record it next time i do. It gets together again. Baya's lunch bias. Lunch with bitcoin. And then i'll believe it. Okay go all right all right so john forbes has released its list of the celebrities who made the most in twenty twenty two. I love this list. Never been on it my dream. I've never been on it. My dream is to date and or mary a woman on this list. Are there any women on the list. In the top ten there is one woman in the top ten. There's one woman. And i will give you hints. She is number one really. Is it anybody i've ever heard of. Oh god yes really somebody. You've talked about a lot on the show is it is it. Jeff is ex wife and no although she did really well. She's not considered a celebrity. It's so it's not her. It is a car dash. Ian really is one of the young ones. Yeah well. I think she's one of the young ones right. Yeah kendall nope go the next one kylie kylie kylie twenty two. She made five hundred and ninety million dollars. This year now lindsay. Apparently she makes makeup. Is her deal yet. That is insane. It's crazy it's crazy for her little makeup kits or whatever the hell she sell and the one who has a child with travis scott oh really yeah yeah yeah no five hundred ninety four dollars i think. She makes a lot of her money off of posting on instagram. Like companies will pay her to where their clothes or shoes or whatever or say like hey by this herbals. She mates is she. The only kardashian on the list. she's the only one in the top ten. I haven't gone through the full hundred. She's not in the top twenty. I can tell you that nobody else all right. So take a shot at everybody else in the top ten well so these are just people from this year correct just for twenty twenty the money they made in twenty twenty money they made in twenty twenty and their athletes so so i would think if there are a number of athletes. Lebron has got to be on their lebron's number nine at eighty eight point two million dollars. Okay now are there. Are there Soccer players on their there are three. Yes so I'm guessing one of them's messy. Yup i'm i'm guessing. One of them is neymar. Yup five point five million and number okay and the other one is rinaldo. Rinaldo hundred five million. He's number for the rest of them. Are one is related to the kardashians. Oh it's konya konya and seventy million dollars. Yeah everybody single. he's got. He did that big sort of church sort of thing this year and released an album based on that i think he's like a born again or got Became a christian this year but harder seventy million bucks. Are there any other athletes. That i haven't named yet one more. Okay so lindsey i. Have you seen the list lindsey. Now i just heard the first okay. I think it's got to be somebody from an individual sport that doesn't have to share their money so it's a golfer or a tennis player. I don't think there was no golfer that set the world on fire. They can't like tiger didn't have a big year. Although he won the master's it's either going to be nidal or federer. Say on the doll. It is roger. Found one hundred six point three million. You're right there you had it. There's one movie star one talk show host and i guess another equal. I think. I think i know the talk show host okay. Because he signed a big deal is it is the talk show host howard stern bam ninety million dollars. He made their share. And by the way worth every single penny of it. Listen to them all the time. Okay movie star. I think it's got to be an action star. Yep it's not the one that his crew yeah lindsay. Did the rock make any movies this year. In twenty twenty. I don't think there's any came out this year. No okay licensing deals and all that kind of stuff. Rock the wrong number. Ten at eighty seven point five million. I could give you a million guesses and you would never guess number six a million. I'll try one clue. Reading of one clue madisha. Well that i know it based on that one clue that then did you're. You're talking about tyler perry perry. How did tyler perry get so rich. He may he owns all the material he produces so he ninety seven million dollars. Yeah good for him by the way our friend. Bill simmons is on the list thirteen and he made eighty two point five million dollars a i knew him when i knew him when and he basically is. He sold his company to start thinking about breaking away. And yes starting your own company selling its side. Side-hustle dual side hustle by the way ryan reynolds is on their. You know ryan reynolds started a mobile company airless company. He does ads for him. Yeah it's crazy. I mean he's out there inventing all kinds of stuff seventy one point five million dollars for him so that's the forbes list of Famous of famous people and how much money they made I wanna. I'm surprised it isn't on there. Who maybe this is. Because it all got shut down on broadway but you know much money it cost to get into hamilton. I'm surprised Miranda's not on there. But maybe that's because all the shows got shut down now. Well miranda did make. He's down the list He made forty three million dollars this year. 'cause memory sold hamilton to disney. And that's why they were able to air it on the fourth of july so got it. That's so lin. Manuel miranda did really really well Coming up next for you. We've got the feds. How now when. I was out last week house the feds doing on best bets. He nailed it easy. He he said take the under in the rams patriots game and it was never even cut that the under the number was forty three and a half and the final score was twenty four to three. Yeah yeah good for him. So he's coming up next his best bets around a role. If you're a gambler you want to make sure you stay listening for this. And at the top of the hour. What frank vogel said about kyle kuzma performance last night against phoenix in that preseason game mason ireland seventeen. Espn yeah. he's hot. He's picking winners. He's the fez and he's on right now says what's going on man living the dream during the holidays hoping to finish strong as your pick last week your best bed of under forty. Three and a half was an absolute lock. I i bet five grand in mythical money on it. I wish i would have been twenty five grand but fez. I'm so impressed with the rams that i've been proclaiming all week that i think they're going back to the super bowl now. People think i'm too high on them. That i'm crazy but let's say i wanted to bet my hunch that the rams are going to the super bowl if i walked into a sportsbook today what could i get what odds could get on the rams not winning the super bowl but just making it. They're winning the nfc. You know what. I just looked at the division and the rams are minus one sixty. I believe and. I'll double check this for you. I believe you can get the rams four to one to win the nfc one. Wow that is that they actually. You're on the rams four to one is pretty good. They are they third fez. I think the saints in the packers might ahead of them Packers or two to one day and saints are three to one and what you can actually get a plus four fifty on the rams famous seattle. That surprises me because the rams are favored to win the division. Yeah so tonight. The other l. team. The san diego chargers. Oh i you were going to say. The raiders will play The oakland las vegas raiders. Both these teams have recently changed cities. You know this feels like a big spot for the raiders. They are seven and six the right in the middle of potentially a chase for the playoffs and the chargers seem mean. They seem so much better than their record. I i don't know. Does that make sense. It doesn't make sense in the problem with. The chargers is their special teams are rated last in special teams. And how many times do we have to see this team. Ponting with twelve guys on the field. Punting with ten guys giving up a special teams touchdown two of them against new england so the chargers seemingly every week we we say wow. That's were pretty good. But they lost tough to back the chargers minus three. And a half. what do you like. I am going to lean to the chargers because of all the injuries the raiders are down at least four defenders. And let's face it. The raiders defense wasn't any good anyways so if the charges would have had all their playmakers. I would've loved the chargers but they're down there number two wide receiver williams and i don't know if they're going to have their number one wide receiver and if he plays i don't know if keenum allen's going to be close to one hundred percent because of that just a lean to the chargers all right this weekend fez and we're talking to our buddy steve from pregame.com. The rams hosts the jets. The winless jets at sofi stadium. When this game. I hit the board. The rams i saw it as high as seventeen and a half as this morning when i looked i saw some books had it at thirteen. And a it's been bet down all the way they're a where is it now. And what's the right side of that game. There's a lot of points there for somebody. If you wanna take the jets the you got the numbers right but it. It's the opposite to the rams last week on the look ahead were minus thirteen and a half but now all the money but after that jets performance seattle has been on the rams. Rams are laying anywhere from seventeen to seven floors up. Okay it you got you know what you look at the jets. They had to fly all the way across the to seattle. Got crushed fly back to los angeles. How interested are the jets. They know they're not gonna win. This game we know they wanna win a game. But this isn't going to be it if you're gonna play it. I think you have to lay it. Do they want to win. A game do they. I'm not sure that they do anymore. We wanna win. Don't know about the organization. Yeah so Seventeen and a half. Would you even touch a game like that. I'll touch any game. Is there a right side to that one but usually what will happen. Is i'll play props. And i'll play alternative. That's in different ways to get at things. Such as you know who kicked the longest field goal probably would take the rams just because the jets probably behind by so much that they won't be kicking field goals in the second half but you know having said that who knows what these gets all right so says. There's a couple of other big numbers on the board this week for example monday night. Jacksonville goes to war. Thirteen a half in an nfl game. Thirteen and a half is a ton of points. I know jacksonville stinks. But if i can get thirteen and a half in an nfl game it'd be tempted to take. What do you think. Yeah jacksonville's no longer on monday night. They're like we can't have that. Game are monday night game. So that's on sunday and they moved your ira and we're all thankful for that. Although frankly now the steelers are playing the bengals. So i don't know if it's really gonna matter much. I actually liked jacksonville. And here's why. I don't think i've ever seen this before baltimore. This is their third straight short week. They played on a wednesday then. They played on tuesday and then they played on a monday now. They have to play in the sunday. They just one there. What many are calling the game of the year against the browns and now they have to wheel back against jacksonville. I can see baltimore looking. Pass this like jacksonville and the points. Are you mentioned. The other big spread the inmates pittsburgh. Twelve and a half point favorite on the road in cincinnati and pittsburgh last two games in rio. What's the right side of that game. I could only lay it with pittsburgh. Obviously cincinnati stinks. I don't know brandon. Allen is going to be able to play in ryan. Finley is worse. Both of them are horrible. And if we're gonna lay points on the road. We need a motivated favorite after back to back really bad spots and their own short weeks for pittsburgh where they wilted in the second half. You gotta feel tomlin's going to have the team ready. Oftentimes pittsburgh isn't ready as a road favourite. I think they will be for this game so game of the week the kansas city chiefs versus new orleans. It's at new orleans. There is some question about whether or not i mean will drew brees play. Willie not play. I don't think anybody knows the answer to that right now. Sean payton is really showing his hand at all. There is a three point spread. Kansas city's got to be the best overall team in Sportsbooks right oh yes kenzees rated number one for me but you know what. If breeze came back healthy the saints would be number two but with some hill saints. I have as my tenth best team. Will there be an adjustment if we find out on sunday morning. That drew brees is going to play. Well that line swing to great question. I think it will swing but just modestly and why is it only modest breezes a good three point upgrade versus tastes some hill however. I don't think anyone expects drew. Brees to be close to one hundred percent when he comes back so i don't think you'll come back. And even if he does. I don't think he'll nippy nearly as effective and because of that it would only be a modest impact of the point spread iphone. Let's take time to get your best of the weekend already. Talked about it or is it not been brought up yet. We have not brought it up. What is it all right. New england miami. You know we went with the news or last week. And we got the under and the new england rams game. I'm on right back to the well. I'm play patriot. Game under here against the dolphins this is setting up beautifully now. New england the last three weeks. They run the ball two thirds of the time almost so they've abandoned the run. Excuse me abandoned the pass and fellow checks like hey if we got a chance. It's going to be on the ground with cam and if you bet under you love a team that runs the ball especially one with no playmakers like new england. Now looking miami. Here's a team. We gotta worry about two and that offense but that offenses compromise the top. Three running backs are out. And i know i just said hey. Wait a minute running for the under well. Miami's also missing the receivers. So koseki their tight end is out there. Wide receivers are injured. Their number one receiver is not one hundred percent. He may play. And because of that with all the guys out for miami and new england unable to score we see another smoother seventeen. Thirteen don't know who wins. We go under the total forty one. A half okay. Last thing for you here says what is the number one christmas song for you. What's the the one that that really captures. The holiday season in is the most memorable to you. Which one do you love to hear at christmas time. you know is it the mariah carey. Wish you were here. Oh god everybody says that. The mara carry the song the song you're thinking of his all. I want for christmas is you the although diehard is clearly the number one christmas movie it is not a christmas movie christmas christmas bolivia just happens in december right. It's not a christmas. That makes it a christmas. A weather outside is frightful as confetti down says. Thank you very much man. I appreciate it. Thank you as always been. Oh and we won't see before. Christmas so does have a merry christmas. Thank you very much ever really boring game in south beach. Thank you there. You go all right. There is the fest jennifer you one in the rams. Yeah that's that's pretty impressive for you. John christmas song power rankings. What is your number one. And let's let's not do it as a particular recording of this. Let's just do it on the song itself longer. Be a particular recording because certain songs as certain recordings don't do justice if somebody else sings it you know Yeah you're complicating things but no. It's not a christmas. Song is made a christmas song. Most likely by the person who's singing it. Okay all right so john. Do you have a thought on that. Well it breaks right on the argument you tour. Having ella fitzgerald version of sleigh ride is a song that you will ever hear way. Ride the one. That doesn't have any words. No no no. Just hear those sleigh bells jingle to come on. it's lovely weather for sleep version. I'm thinking of that. I always hear plays the one without the song that that affects me emotionally the most depending on who singing it is. Oh holy night me too. Yeah that's the one that you go. Whoa if you get the right person. Look out in the category of like super. I think it's very religious. One i would put oh holy night and i'm trying to remember whose version i can't remember whose version i like. A lot of people do that. One and justin bieber. That's probably the probably does bbb says do oh holy night and then i like Bieber's version of chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Did i like johnny mathis versus. He say does bieber asked the nets to shake. Shake it baby shake shake shake it. Shake it baby. Remember a couple of years ago. We had a christmas carol sing off yet and i would've won and chris mcgee. That loser voted for you. I thought peter was in the bag for me. You don't remember that it was. We both stacked the judges and And so you thought the channel eleven girls would vote for you and they voted for me. And i thought gator would vote for me and he voted for you and i remember who swung but there was a third judge. That didn't that neither one of us had in our pocket and as it turns out the people we thought we had in her pocket win against us and against us. Exactly one the third one you because that's one one thing people don't know about me and this is everybody's will will be surprised that i have a beautiful singing voice. That's the that's the that's part of me seeing off anytime you want anything off thing off your challenging me to a sing off seeing off any day anywhere. Kay tuesday then our last day of the year. What are we sing. You sing your best christmas song. I'll sing my best when you do a sing off. Feel like you should sing the same song here. I got buried here. Let's you and i challenge sodano and l z to a sing off. Oh so you. And i do a duet what we can do at duet but who said yes we would we would we execute for not in the same place. That'd be hard to do. It'd be difficult to do. I think we just stick with you. And me. And elle's ian scott caplan to prepare their individual songs to wait. Wait wait wait. I think that everybody should do the same song though. Because then it's better. It's easier to compare because it's like we'll take your best shot or american idol. You pick your own song. Yeah we all take our best shot. Do you know what your songs are going to be done. No i know exactly what mine is going to be. And i will absolutely now. I do a song come on lindsay. Well that's the point if you can't sing that's what makes it good. No like i literally can't sing i. What do you mean everybody can sing. No you're physically see right now right now. Sing jingle bells jingle bells jingle bells jingle all the way jingle bells jingle. he's not like siri siri. it's true you can't sing. Oh my god my favorite christmas song but only four plays it. okay if you can't sing what a joyless existence trust me. I wish i could say. I used to think i could sing for the mason in ireland. Spring sing will come on rings. I could have my dog thing better for me. Because yesterday when i went out to run to the pharmacy. My roommate actually texted me and said. I think julie's upset 'cause i put him in his whenever i leave and he said he sounds like an r. and b. singer because he goes ooh. Oh now that right. There was not bad. That was that still a little crooning. That was good. Yeah record that all right. Hey coming up next for your cow. Who's talking about what his role is going to be on this team.

Interview with Former Disney Channel Star Alyson Stoner on Mental Health Struggles, Overcoming an Eating Disorder & Battling Depression + the Dangers of Idolizing Fame

"Hi i'm dr caroline lifan. Welcome to my podcast cleaning up your mental mace. Today's podcast such an case. Alyson stoner remembers exactly heartfelt when it all became too much sterner who was in the base known as the little girl busting a move in mus were could with your and for playing one of steve martin's young daughters in two thousand. Three's cheaper by the dozen. She checked into rehab to treat an eating disorder shortly after she was just seventeen at twenty seven stone as has had time to look back on experience of start another young age and how to fix it who. She didn't like much of what she found now. Ellison has made it her mission to advocate for children working in the industry she spoke about the problems and potential solutions to what she's called the toddlers to train industrial complex in today's podcast. We really get into the danger of children being put under pressure in any industry whether it's the entertainment industry education sports the impact on the lives the changes in the brain and how to manage this and how to de escalate situations so really advocating to understand how to help children and appreciate that. Children are under just a reminder these podcasts of educational purposes only and are not medical advice if you need medical advice. Pcb appropriate medical professional. And if you haven't picked up a copy of my new book cleaning up mental. Mace do so now. It's available every sold including outside of the dot com and now aren't today's ellison. What an honor and privilege to meet you to talk to you and to hear you a nasal story so part cost today. Thank you so much. It's truly mutual and honored to be here as well thank you. I'm a great fan of yours. I watched you in. You're a little girl and in movies you've done and you've got such a phenomenal story. Would you mind share you story with the audience. Yes sure. I began working in entertainment at six years old and it was a fulltime job. You could say. It was a combination of training and learning about the craft also embarking on the industry side of things so meeting with agencies and having representatives and going on these auditions and it was a very reoccupying all consuming endeavor that ended up up rooting my entire family from ohio. All the way to the other side of the country to las angeles. And you know there's a mixed way of interpreting this because in many ways i was very very fortunate to have experienced quite a significant amount of success. Early on you could call it. Beginner's luck you could call it really great mentorship from my teachers. But there's also the flip side. Which is the psychological impact the developmental impact when you're removed from normal socialization. And when you're no longer in academic settings and you're you're learning a lot of different patterns that deeply embed themselves and and and give you a sense of reality that's quite skewed from the quote unquote normal. So it's been a multi layered experience but it's the story that i have to work with so here. We are turning turning everything we can into something purposeful. I love it and you've become a huge mental health advocate and just before we began. You made a very interesting comments about helping others in two different states one way you still proceeding through and one way you sort of proceed through now you moving into that other side. Can you talk about this. Because i found it really stinks. Yes as i'm meeting with a lot of different folks in the space were discussing the advocacy at hand for child actors child performers in terms of labor laws in terms of mental health practitioners on sets etc etc. I'm noticing that of course everyone is at different stages of their own healing and process. And you know some like to bring their pain into their advocacy because it's it's the passion it's the spark it's the fire that that really keeps them going and there's no judgment there however my personal approach is i wanted to give myself time and space to heal as much as possible and find a sense of wholeness as well as a tool to manage my own pain triggers. Difficult things that i would. I might need to reprocess fryer to this direct advocacy. Because you know. I i like to. I like to be as prepared and as grounded as possible. And i also wanna be as as clear minded if i advocating for someone else's wellbeing i don't necessarily want to be projecting my my own traumas onto them. You know everyone's experiences so so unique. But you know all that to say everyone can start where they are and be a part of emission or a revolution and there's no judgment it's just how can we become more aware of what's driving us on a daily basis and continue our own healing as we hope to help others. He'll very very important statements that you've made and so important that we do as as a as a world globally advocate for mental health. Because it's being made out to be something that is only affecting a few. But meanwhile every human since the beginning of time is becky adverse circumstance the pandemic whatever and everyone's got story. Everyone's got to anyone's going up and down with depression anxiety. These are very no response to adverse circumstances. Certain things can acute lifelock at standing yours. And you're going to speak specifically to industry more. Did things accumulate. An people have point to a crash and that something. You were also just mentioning. Before we started was that they just is billy the space these more talk. Now the whole thing's going around diagnosing labeling which actually the research shows. And i'm in this field of for thirty years now actually doesn't help to diagnose label it connects you sit back. We had to do on a people's narratives and the context and understand the mind brain connection the impact brain and body work in hosting golden nations. I'm so excited to finally announce that we are going to be back in person. My interview mental health retreat in dallas takes us to see as third through fourth.

This is a bit of you know a parallel and of course it's completely imperfect parallel. But when i think about my journey into understanding my sexuality. I actually appreciated being bull here that there were labels for it. There was a word to describe my experience however thereafter. I didn't wanna be glued to that label. And you know it's it's a both end right. And i think you know at least in the west here. We absolutely love our empirical data and that is essential to the scientific process. It is essential to evidence based practices. But then you know if you're one overriding a person's subjective experience because you so prioritize logic in cold hard facts over let's say intuition or someone's embodied recounting of their experience than you're dismissing the in my opinion a more rounded perspective nuanced perspective where. There's a mindful awareness. There's an embodied presence in your method of reasoning. And that's something. I see as returning to diagnose we're trying to treat it's like wow were. Were really still in that either or mentality instead of that holistic approach and yes. We all exist in space in a situation in an environment. How could we not affected exactly. It's environment mind person environment in mind purses into brain vanished buddy such environment brain mind brain body psycho neurobiology and you could look at that and you. So rock rocco sit on pledged to underline that point at the label can initially give you a sense of comfort but then it's then know not it's not like cancer which is very specific were diabetes which is very specific anxiety. Depression on actually. It's they not actually illnesses their descriptions so we can always talk about them as warning signal as a symptom or two of an underlying cause so yes the things and and a symptom off as opposed to. It's an illicit fixed in your brain. You now have broken brain and that's so demoralizing to think a cam battling with lie have gone through these experiences on top of untold. I have a brain disease eventually becomes difficult to be rather. Hey listen you've been through terrible stuff in life it's impacted you. It's created this extreme state of anxiety. It's not chronic. It's acute to become a chronic situation and that's affected you but these debts just the that's just a clue that's the warning signal go to become serious to take us to go deeper and you've done that. You have come to the other side. You advocate specifically for child. Actor said love to just quote something as a twenty seven year old. You can look back on your experience of start at a young age and how to fix it you you talk about the toddler to train wreck. Industrial complex around child performers essence. And you say your. Ac which is beautiful by the way it is expertly constructed and bolted into place by cinching. The harm happening behind the scenes manicuring. Espa original lifestyles are comes in watching an lives tragedy. Implode that was disputed free sate. Can you talk about that. This is something that very few people actually talking about as you know yes and a couple of things to mention prior i i fully understand that the way we've positioned actors and performers and entertainment within society is solution of separation right. It's we intentionally sort of remove people who experienced fame as either. If it's a superior thing or it's it's a an unapproachable ability something just less relatable slightly less human now that little window of space already allows for. Let's say a lack of empathy of someone comes forward on something. There's there's a lot of different consequences when for any reason we slightly or largely dehumanized one. Another oh so just wanna laid that context here. A child comes forward when they've already been positioned within the media as being problematic diva per se. Then there's no space to listen to what's actually going on behind closed doors and we see that of course in a bunch of different settings with young kids who you know who don't have the agency or autonomy to to be believed by the people around them but they're crying out and then they resort to whatever tactics necessary to have their voices heard whether positive or negative so specifically the toddler to train wreck pipeline as i call it is this measurable industrial complex and young artists are subjected to incredibly unique risks and pressures and experiences in. I'll name some of them. Is it okay to go. And course absolutely go into this with absolutely okay there. These are triggered warning. These are the they can be harsh realities and i'll keep it high level. No that's on me. Talk about kinds of things on the spot costs okay so it might include forced or free labor for for a child. These are minor i. It could include sexual physical and psychological abuse and violence it could include exploitation and extortion from teams from networks it could include coercion into using illegal substances and performing very degrading acts. I unfortunately have stories of of artists who you know had bags of of drugs pushed across a table to them and they were told. You're going to meet this to keep up with your future rehearsal schedule. And then there's the rapid adult education. Where i'm on set and as the adults leave to go take their cigarette break. They offer me the same cigarette. Because i'm viewed as a peer instead of a seven year old and there's this public objectification where people are able to actually think fi- as a friend says me and an turn me into whatever really they would like me to represent in in their mind and then there's set conditions that are quite harmful for example. You might shift from regular day shoots. That can already be long to suddenly going into two overnight. Shoots says got a bunch of minors who are working overnight. Perhaps wearing you know very thin summertime clothing. But it's in the middle of winter in vancouver canada because your movie is about the summer and it'll come out in the summertime but we're actually. Our lips are turning blue. Because we're or so cold but you're told that's that's what to do you know if you're a dedicated actor and so then there's there's a loss of control as well an autonomy over your body and appearance So i have you know. I'm going in on this audition in not only tells me exactly what they're looking for in the breakdown but based on my particular body type there's already a preset trajectory for who i can and cannot portray in film. I was told that my nose shape prevented me from ever being a leading character. Something so harsh to hear when you think. I want to believe in my skill. Set your already limiting me based on something. I could not control. Then there's the chronic sickness. I mean the list goes on because your body will out speak for myself. I was in such a constant state of stress. But we didn't really have verbiage for it and when you're on the hamster wheel and there is this excitement in this adrenaline rush in there. Are this these blends of really powerful impactful beautiful As it's hard to be able to really compute everything that's compounding within your body within your mind over time then you start to see it unravel at some point. And that's when you know the child is rebelling or acting out or whatever but the media begins to portray them as an isolated incident of being a train wreck as opposed to this is a systemic set up. And when i say it's a setup i'm not saying that i'm a victim saying you can literally measure generation over generation over generation and the complex. Ptsd the diagnoses. The different experiences that are copy and paste are just good nominal to witness especially knowing. We haven't done anything to intervene. We have not shown up and said how can we not only prevent this but be available in these crisis moments or before they get to you know crisis that's a lot but that's some context for that is brilliant and you've opened people's eyes because people don't see been and i'm so glad you've spoken about the way that the world object is and just assistant editors in chief speech senior old to deal with that and i mean this is just it's terrible. It's actually shocking. You actually talk about gene like an eighty year old only twenty seven from all the experience so this is not in any of you hear the. This is not just a one off situation. I mean you in the world. These child ex's are really suffering as adults now know a few celebrities and has been from very young. And it's the same it's the it's era be to medic and people though you rich and famous and beautiful wall you know. What are you going through. But you have had your child almost stolen from you well. And it also speaks to the fact that we portray fame and success as aspirational. So if if people think that you have what they're supposed to get or supposed to be aiming for then of course that's that is. We are perfectly creating an environment for conflict and for apathy and for hatred toward each other or misunderstanding. Because we're not truly listening to the reality we have on. All sides been programmed via media via tabloids via just society and how we've decided to portray the arts and fame and excess to wear this. I don't blame or shame or criminalize response or lack thereof to my experience. All i care about is how can we begin to really hear each other. At the core level of what's going on and take a look at the deeper impact so that we can heal within this industry and trust that if something happens in media and entertainment that can ripple into so many other industries. This isn't just about me saying fight for my cause this is me saying here's a strategy so that we can better fight for kids everywhere because if you get the arts to do it you can take this to sports. You can take this to academia. You can take this. A lot of different plays three way. Because it's it's really rampant. Me one in four girls are six abuse one in six boys. And that's what we estimate and you know the trauma the bullying the manipulation as you said every industry i love the fact that you have abreu. It's not just one industry. You're you're advocating free tire. Take action over. Children that will getting objectified at such young ages. We knew do what you love like running like racing like enjoying the great outdoors.

Think when you you had to check into rehab an eating disorder. And i mean that just shows you eventually got two points of ten years. Eleven years into the industry just was discarded too much. And that's that's pretty pretty common thing. Isn't it that that happens at these breakdowns. I mean i'm anura scientists. So i can tell you that your brain is taking twenty five years to grow and then for the rest of your life. It's still growing at each stage. These all the impact the tumor so you were living constantly touma so your brain was constantly. Your mind is experiencing that environment in two brain who mind were extremely brain brain response in ukraine tells you what to do see. Your body was in concentrated inflammation and all the race would have you know. Constantly challenged at their depression. Anxiety just manifestations signals that hey this imbalance everywhere and you've looked on you've lived under so years so you know. I'm not surprised to hear that there was wasn't eventually accumulative balled up in a crash and that's not uncommon either in not even just in the indu- field but in in how many child's experts in the sports world and as you say soviak -demia we've crashes is so much patience on. Can you a little bit to that. Yes at in it manifest in such an individualized way. No some some of us get just physical injuries. And you can't figure out why you have lower back pain and how that might relate to the you know social or emotional turbulence that you're experiencing and for others it's it's you know seems to be solely mental health and so yeah for me and in a way choosing to go to rehab i was. I was on the brink of the decline that would lead to you know combustion in in a way for me. I actually for some reason you know perhaps again the the loving mentors and my wife were able to point out. Hey if if you don't pause right now you are still developing. You have a chance to change some of these patterns. The longer you wait the more difficult it might be to reorganize these thoughts and beliefs and different. You know your your whole paradigm so. I chose at seventeen to go before. I would have been admitted to the adult unit particularly because i learned that as adults yes that it can feel a tad more grim. It's a different approach. It's you've got more experience that more time logged in certain ways of being and not to say that it's impossible because it isn't. I'm so amazed constantly by the plasticity and flexibility that we possess s of the brain and down even into your body language. And how you can truly go from being in a constant fighter flight to now that i'm able to have this conversation candidly and openly as opposed to rehearse something and feel closed off and in some state of anxiety the whole time so you know the change is available but a couple of things that came to mind when you're speaking. I can hear people listening in going. How dare her family even allow that to happen. You know i would never let my kid do this. And so when i tell you it's so easy to say that when when you're not on the ground with us seeing what the day to day interactions are like in how how this miss happens without the family really feeling like either. We have the choice or the awareness and tools to know. What's in real time. So i just want to be very clear that a lot of parents deeply love their kids included. They are rooting for us. They are making sacrifices with the best you know discernment that they have to support you know the passion and the career feeling here and parents yes. Some might be staged parents who you know are kind of like hoping that their kid's success is something they can live vicariously through mine at least to my knowledge are not that way. We were a normal family. Nothing to do with entertainment and we just took every day moment at a time and because there are no resources or kind of media literacy courses or industry literacy courses. It's it's hard you would. There's no way that you would be able to anticipate all of these are happening. I mean let alone. We're talking about mind body connection on for the average family. How much does the parent or guardian understand but rain developing rama and brain development and the symptoms and signs and no these notification happening at school so happening enough in the public. I know that's why i do what i do. I have my full trying to educate people but you so right. It's just not healthy so it's important to note that this really could be any of us and so it's important to be proactive about setting people up for success. If you want to you know let your child explore this creative passion in this context. How can we do this in the most ethical way in in a at a pace. That doesn't overwhelm the child or lead to maladaptive coping mechanisms. You know how can we do. Just some basic education for parents and guardians also for agencies and representatives and then the networks. Everyone plays a role. Here it's not a single person and trust me a lot of kids. Do love what we do. I'm still on shows. You know. I love it. It's harder to choice of korea's to it was just the whole the as you say. The whole kontic's was not well managed is educating around exactly. So it's not. I'm not here to say down with hollywood altogether. I'm here to say. How can we heal repair and reimagine a new version of for me. This is my particular expertise and experience so my industry but really everywhere as we continue learning and evolving understanding the brain understanding the body. Like we've of course we want to see that progress take place in in all settings you know this is an up. This is a call forward for all of us. Oh i totally agree with you and we go to train our kids from very young we should have licensing school about understanding the mind brain connection and emotions and husband years in south africa and here working with training teachers and parents to train kids from young in mind management. Because that's really what we're talking about here is being able to understand. Hey this is. The experience is a problem in utah. About addition christine in which characters kidnapped and raped and in rushing off to try for prince. His toy add immediately often in ways the hottest job with the psychological support to to manage the child. What was the pre in person. That's what you talking the. Isn't this just this assumption. Hey you very gifted you talented. You can do this. And they don't this. The education day for the impact. So you advocating now a change in education their whole having psychologist on site to help the transition and understand citra. I love that you bring up pre and post. I do wish that. I had those tools much earlier. The concept of de rolling. So really taking off the mask of your character for the day and saying okay. Now i'm back to being me young alison. I have two older sisters. This is my role within my family. And this is my role within this household. And then tomorrow i'll put back on the mask or the costume and i will re enroll myself but that after care. Oh my gosh collation is so important that preparation was your mind as you think experience as you having the experience you don't have the brain development all mind magic from brain at a six seven year olds understand they kind of transition so you have to have someone saying okay. This is real. And that's because they built in your brain. I mean you've experienced freezing rain and when it's a toxic toxic tree over here that's our show in a moment but it's a reality new brain that your mind goes in and if you as a child if you too hard to distinguish for child of that age pre twelve years of age to distinguish between that and that as one as being my real reality in one is being an imagined reality and that requires intensive therapeutic preparation before during and after and now i'm going to add i'm gonna raise the stakes even further and that is if the child does let's say a quote unquote successful job at portraying the scene. There's a strong chance that they will then be positively rewarded. Ooh okay raise from not only people on set but then they might even get an award from you know a prestigious academy for their intense per trail so talk about a mind game or you start to associate that kind of vulnerability that that helplessness whatever that portrayal might be with livelihood and and rewards and acceptance of us person. So do that. I get that but if i do that. Don't get that. But i can't do that because it's not niece. I think that's me but it's not me. So the interpretation of the experience becomes very toxic and that can lead to tremendous confusion and break. Even she cumulatively will end up in disaster right. And you really you truly is. It's all of these different things. That are a combination of what the imagined scenario is plus the you know the aftermath of how people respond around you and i remember you know being in different acting classes where you're celebrated if you know how to cry on cue and there are different methods of being able to reach that state. Some teachers ask you to use substitutions. So go into your own trauma. Even though this character didn't experience the same thing it might elicit the same response. If you imagine a horrible thing that happened to you now. That is so psychologically. Oh gosh you're able. But that's one of many techniques that are used by artists constantly. So you think about this. This retraumatize asian as well as the open wounds. And you and you start to see why we might have this archetype of the. You know brooding moody artist. Who's always using their art for catharsis cool can't heal too much. Because then they might lose their artistry. And i'm convinced that you don't need to be fragmented and broken a million and a million pieces in order to be artistically powerful and impactful but we really cling to that sense of of pain and and even self inflicted torture to get into that head space. Because that's when you're taken seriously as an arnez ellison saying this my hardest breaking but as a scientist. I am going to tell you that we have the most power or bring to separate but you have to teach someone how to do that especially child because the child will blame those those different roles and it's very hard to separate least you have incredibly taints of therapy and going back in retraumatize in cooling that up awareness creates efi samba. I use q. Gene manure scientific research will look at when someone's in an ohio state of awareness and in tumor and it's chronic these you get over lease rates arts across the brain with and you get an imbalance in coherence in the brain which in fix wounds and your body goes inflammation. I mean i can go on and on and on your dna even though telomeres which are the of the prescriptible cells at attila. My research to those you'll biological age intellectual biological age do what he becomes older than what she actually are doing you sit. You're an eighty eight year old is this is. This is the research done but you can reverse. The the problem is the to what you say. Even here we can be if we aware of this kind of education. How can we change the way that you train someone to to to go into. That state traumatizing stiffen begun to damage with at abuse. You can use that same creativity that you'll gifting to to actually. You don't have to recreate the tumor to get the cry. You can do other things. But that's education and that's and then in these needs to be an understanding of the impact on the mind brain and body people knew see. Genetics are gosh. I mean you could have the discussion then on this is like. Thank you for what you're doing and being prepared to talk about this. This is so important. Well i i have a question for you as well as a comment on the aging that is a genuine fear and i. I haven't shared this really anywhere. But i sometimes wonder how many years of my life i have shaved off and or m shaving off with the level of intensity that i experience or did in the past but then also even now. It's so easy for me to maintain this sort of workaholic mentality. it's something. I actively have to break as a pattern and what i would consider for myself a trauma response because mind you on top of the industry. We also have our home life and that has its own toolbox. Of course this is just using a human in vanity. Has its only of tormenta what well how well intentioned yours appearance ready. But that's just humanity and then as you see these industry that's kind of mismanaged in the saints and you've got to coming together use. The impact is massive. Am iraq down to the level of of certain every every minute every second you making a million new cells but the is in your best city in the fact that your mind drives brains. Humans not your brain. Your brain is physical part. Your mind is the literally the this energy field that every pick up these mine so it does so as we change your mind or mind is has the power to actually change. The brain added some of the. I guess to city research back in the eighties late eighties when they didn't even accepted. The brain could change with erected in. Britain contains directed one input. You changing the ends of the brain. So he has a toxic thought so literally. This is a healthy sorta music just but you can see this oldest daughter so every experience you head as as you've gone through your acting career and being a child and a family just being human everything has been converted In environment experience with your mind and fitness. You set newsreel brain your brain response. Electro-magnetic chemically you both. If experiential brain healthy sorts toxic these tumors and is different labels. Like really bad thomas more was big tumors and you will have a lot of these from what you've gone through. This energy is this is the the mind. Is the environment mine into brain sets osas stored in the mind as sort an energy field or quantum electromagnet extending the brain of protein structure. And that instructs the judean the body certain three cases now. I showed with my research that the telomeres and all the different biomarkers specifically asking by. Tim is that determined city the health so if we have a lot of trauma that is is constant as you have head he said would impact your health and your telomeres. They shouldn't get weaker. You said it yourself get eka. The differences is showed that within nine weeks you can reverse that so as you. So we had some subjects that the biological tyranny thirties biological age was an sixty sixty five year old with a nine weeks. It had on back to their own age so with elected. Mind input. What you doing you healing so that the very process of of getting to the poetry recognize you ranches. Three heck where you recognize the need with you as as a young. It'll devos teen years. You've been really working hard. At healing you would have reversed process. So this is the beauty of the mind brain. Nick shen is that thomas lee. You can still talk about. But you've changed you'd be conceptualized at certain literally that all the thomas experiences a child going through what she did he reconsider last into healthy tree and keesa that has been changed into this scenario. You've gone through the process. Assistant painful the story. But it's now driving force as opposed to chain chaining you back into. It's now become being converted into energy foresees. Now become an advocate to change so you not changing the future and that prosise changes the telomeres back to the health that they should be so. That's so life is a process of doing that all the time so there are too so heavily backed my management. And that's what you've done. You know you doing it so beautifully with what you all how you functioning non talking about so. It's good news. It's very Lease and it's also something. We need to be educated in people are not educated in this. And that's why do what i do. So and similarly that's exactly what's driving my company movement geniuses. How can we and make this information accessible. So people can feel safe and comfortable and confident in their mind and body and not feel like a victim or a bystander. in their life e-e-e-e-no victim. I mean to their own mind there. Of course different events that are beyond your role not minimizing downplaying that whatsoever and then how can we empower ourselves to feel like we can manage whatever our day brings us because yes events are inevitable but that resilience men is what a what a powerful word and a potent word that that really changes your day to day reality and quality of life. So yeah we're i'm i'm i feel like we could talk for ages. Two underway is just underway right. Actually the clothes you wait. Ricky on your body are so much more than let me undies. Believes that when we feel comfortable being almost excels we short true candles and can property celebrate one. Another that's why they're partnering with the los angeles. Lgbt sainted to me and this gives initiative they working together to build a world with lgbtq is a intervals thrive as healthy equal and complete members of society has made a nation to the into that will provide tents sleeping bags hygiene products and other essentials for the homeless youth.

That's me on these dot com slash. Dr lose the link. Details will be in the show notes on a notice what you see that resilience factors are treated. I showed with my research notions of thirty eight years of being the field. They'd been you do what you've just described understand that resilient to recognize you you see the word empowerment a couple of times one of the things. I shipping. I'll send you. I'll send you my latest book. We have actually these pictures of this in that essentially when you when you talk about the agency empowerment that enables a person to start looking at those toxic issues and actually seeing them. Okay what can i learn. What's the obstacle what's the burien hot worker or and show that start making. It shook than you prove that you actually created this point in case in point that you can get the eighty-one percent control feeling of control over the anxiety and depression which is not the issue. It's a signal of an issue. The issue is the source. Think of a tree. It's called a source extra. That's the experience in the industry. That's interpretation of yourself. You say on the news interpretation. I'm not good enough. That they're produce depressionol eating eating issues that eating disorder so that eating orders. Not the it. It's the single symptom of hey interpretation of me was wrong because that was wrong. We deconstruct reconstruct and that process enables you to increase power lovie over these kind of things up to eighty one percent and and it is a simple process if you know what it's hard but it's it's simple process the system getting a mind management going and but it's a bit. It's hard work to to do it tonight. It's a combination of the time factor and years of newark Rewiring brain and right and then of course. There are the practical issues of course and lack of access. And but i i will say if there's any bit of encouragement i can offer just very humbly and my imperfect human journey is that i share this not to not to gloat but really to reflect on the beauty of our brains and bodies because i would have never guessed that the kind of trauma and things that i've experienced could ever be in a state that i could heal to a place where my day to day. Experience is full of joy. It's full of safe. Trustworthy and trusting healthy secure connections with people. It's a reflection of of real transformation and again it's i'm not. I'm talking about myself. A bit distanced. Because i want you and people to know it really is possible and of course it's at your pace you you can peel back just the top right corner you know inch by inch and and manage what you can as you hand but resources are available. Obviously what you're doing making the successful is brilliant and so important and there are so many people who want to see you thrive and we need you to thrive. This is a a group effort. Were we are all truly in this together. And i know everyone comes to the table with different identity markers circumstances even goals of what mental emotional physical wellbeing. Look like for you authentically. But it is worth it. You're deserving and it's possible. I promise because i didn't know when i was in the throes of it when i was on bed rest for forty days unable to stand i couldn't have told you that i would be able to have healthier secure relationships with anyone or that my body would feel strong. My immune system would rebuild itself. I mean we're talking someone who went from you know seizures and hair loss and an all kinds of physical symptoms to my body being able to say. Actually we got this. We can repair ourselves and yes. Healing looks different. Health looks different. It's not a one-size-fits-all just letting you know you're worth it. And it's possible and snob beautiful.

HR 1: Still Stunned

"Blah boy it is great to wind lindsay. Up isn't it. My favorite part of yesterday was when she just like. Didn't take the bait at all and goes. I know what you're doing a better. I better not get to route up. I don't want serial killer is to come after me. That was creepy today. That video you did today was just flat wa role in get out. They made it look like serial killer. You got it is. I do not real killer is oh sure yeah. Very funny very funny. Yeah i it was the knows. Now it's the is. I just can't win with the nose just big. The is our serial killer. Hey this is like. I get excited to do every laker game. It's a laker games tonight. Is this is as excited as i've been to do a game since the finals last year and the bubble this has everything so just a few sassy stats all right. Yeah bring it lakers. Ten on the road obviously best road record in the league sixers nine and one at home record in the league. The two favorites to win. Mvp depending on what sportsbook you go to. But the one. I read this morning. Lebron one joel embiid to going head to head for the first time. Yeah dwight howard and danny green who both won rings with the lakers last year. Both playing against the lakers nice. I can't wait. i think philly's really good. I like i think. Doc is a big upgrade coaching in philly over breath. They got shooters around those guys. They added Curry mentioned it. So here's the three point. Shooting percentage leaders in the nba number. Four seth curry our. I'm sorry number. Four kentavious caldwell-pope lakers number. Three wayne ellington we tomorrow night in detroit number two seth curry who played for the sixers tonight and number one. Alex caruso ac lakers. This is by the way. The sixers are comparable and talented the lakers. They've been simmons. They've got tobias harris. They've got this kid shake milton. This kid tyree maxi. Yep this is if you only one game to watch her. Listen to this week and the lakers have several pick tonight four thirty mason and argo until three or handed over to michael ansley with this game is house land. Yeah it's a great way to great. When i'm i'm incredibly excited i watched a embiid versus the celtics. Last week. he went for forty two. He was just playing. Bully ball with those guys and weirdly. He's also shooting over thirty. Five percent from three embiid is really developing his game. Great player deserves to be in the mvp conversation. I think you're gonna see three of the four. I team all nba players in. Tonight's game i think. Lbj team all nba center. Lebron is going to be first team all nba whether you put them at point or put them at small forward ad will be first team. All nba powerful. So you're gonna get three of the five tonight well and you know publicly in in press conferences and stuff Lebron in a d. Don't talk about like when they played jaanus they didn't they didn't talk about. It was just another game right now. The game he happened to win back to back. Mvp and defensive player of the year last year and those guys just rose up And lead them to that win. I think the same thing happens tonight. You won't you won't hear lebron say you know embiid. Mvp any that's but that's their care the front the prenton the smartest players ever to play in this league. You don't think that's in the back of mind. Come out by the way the the other day when they beat chicago on saturday when he beat chicago. Yeah we'll surround. Did you see that. The bull said afterwards that lebron was calling out their offense of sets as they were as they were on the floor as they were an offense and lebron came out afterwards and said you know. I studied these guys i study. I watch their games once. And then i go in and i look at their offense of sets and i look at the way they play and i and i figure it out and i make make sure my guys know it. That's the interesting thing about lebron. Not only is he the best player in the world He is his training is unbelievable. His physical spa as a physical specimen. He's unbelievable but he's also incredibly cerebral studies. The game he knows what these guys are gonna do. Okay great. I got a great story about that particular wrinkle of lebron. Yeah i've heard this twice. I heard it once from jeff. Van gundy and once from frank vogel okay. So lebron does that a lot like he'll call out the other teams plays before they actually execute the play sees it start he no. He goes back door coming. Hey mark your man's going to screen high so one time jeffy and gundy and tap into him to said. This guy is ridiculous. He knows all our place so he told his point guard he goes. Hey call this. An and the point guard goes. I don't know that play. You just call it. I want to lebron. Yeah so the guy comes out. He goes triple high. Ucla post and lebron turned and looked right at van. Gundy and goes nice. Try you don't run that play. That's smart yeah. Yeah he does the work in every way and that's one of the reasons why he has been so successful for so long know. I used to do a show. This was before you. And i got together. I did a show with rick schwartz too much show. Of course. I know much i feel like. That's what we've got today. I feel like we've got too much show for only quite you. And rick to the king's stanley cup run in ninety three. You married yourself to that gretzky kings team and for a years. That was the best kings team until they won the cup in two thousand twelve. Yahoo whenever you never think too much show i think of you guys and the fact that you jumped up. I think you guys are on the king station. Yeah we're the things we would often go on the air after a kings game so called kings postgame. Yeah and you guys used to pull the same trick. That i would pull in hacksaw. Yeah would call nick nixon and pretend or someone else. Yes yes We did a lot of messed up stuff on that show. That was fun. Show that's schwartz is a funny guy. I occasionally why do you get out of the business. I think he made a lot of money doing other things. Oh good for him. Yeah why why piddle around here right so yesterday and there's continued fall out from this bill. Plachy is gonna join us in ten minutes. Continued conversation about jared goff and the ram so we all heard the press conference yesterday with less need talking about the magical mystery of what's going to happen next beautiful beautiful mr any quoting obviously aaron rodgers. So here's foxworth this morning jorges. Follow me on get up. You know he's talking. He's talking to aaron rodgers or he's taking the players on his own team. He's making sure they all know that we all see the same thing. Jared goff is good but he's not good enough and if we can get aaron rodgers look over here. We're gonna make whatever sounds we can make say whatever words they're gonna probably wear in bed shirt that aaron hat on the all the whole front office and coaching staff to grow mustaches. Today and come out and stay safe and beautiful mystery to try to era. la so there's dominique foxworth then. Graziano is like a cold bucket of water. They are totally stuck with this guy. Twenty seven and a half million fully guaranteed for this year. He's got another twenty five million plus next year of which fifteen and a half is already fully guaranteed if they cut him it. Sixty four million dollars dead money this year. That's a third of what the cap is going to be so impossible not practically and i don't know who's trading for that contract and all that money now look could they bring in a cheaper option and compete with him and if that guy ends up being the guys maybe jared goff's a highly paid back up until they can get out of the contract but look what are they gonna do their first round. Pick on a quarterback. Oh wait they don't have one so the rams whereas off anymore. I've got some bad news for them. He's not just a ram right now. It's going to be really hard for him not to be around this time next year. Two sides of the coin. If graziano i was trying to figure out why is less. Need doing what he's doing if dan everything. Dan said was factual right. They can't cut him. It would cost from sixty plus million now if they wait until after july first cut him. Which is a little risky. Because then you're bringing in a quarterback late but you could do it that cap it goes down to twenty two million but the really so i if you wait until after july one. It's only at twenty million dollars. Well only that's still a lot of money. It's a lot of money but it ain't sixty five million. and what. what are you gonna do. Use that money and you lose the ability to give it to another quarterback. So i mean there's there's a trade is preferred so i can't figure out why especially when bill plachy yesterday laid it out as simple as he did he said to less. I want to give you a chance to bail yourself out here. I want to give you a chance because you know you. You've just bought yourself a summer of people asking. Why do you hate. Jared goff and less didn't take it. He didn't take the offer that bill gave him. And so i've got a couple of theories. I wanna run by bill. I know he's coming up next but less is a smart guy. You say want about less need. He did give gurley a weird contract. You did pay off kind of early. But he's not stupid he's also the guy that went out and got jalen ramsey. He's the guy. That drafted cooper kupp. He's the guy that's built the rams. He's the guy that hired sean. Mcvay less isn't stupid so there has to be a method to his madness. I have one idea and okay by you and bill coming up all right. That's coming up next for you. Mason and ireland seventeen. Espn bob cat in the sack. Excellent answer so what is going on. Thank you very much for being out there. Thank you very much for listening. We appreciate you. If you weren't out there we wouldn't be able to do this. Dumb show everyday built a minute. But first i wanna play. Let's play the exchange that bill had with less need yesterday during a press availability. This talking about jared goff given your uncertainty today. You know you could end all this. You're setting yourself up for a full summer questions about jared. You could end it right now. Say needs a quarterback of the future for this team. So i mean you you realize what you're saying yourself up for here in this job right. You're always gonna get questions. So i think a good. I'm giving you a chance. I'm giving one more chance to say. He quarterback jared gulfs. He's he's aram right right now. How so what's the date. Genuine kuni six. I mean that's that's a fact. That's obvious he's writing meetings number two and wins amid move partner together. I mean that's i mean tom. Brady's gotten more in this. The things tom brady's doing. I don't even know if i can put that works. I mean so. That's been a heck of a partnership what i do know. Isn't i think that the real thing that should come out of this is hey we want to be a better oftens. Wow i mean. I don't know if i've ever heard a gm throw at us like that. Yeah and joining us right now from the la times. Is bill plachy bill. You've been doing this a long time. Have you ever heard an executive be that noncommittal before yesterday well yeah actually. I love need by the way l. a.'s. Lead you to. He does this every year. He does sit out and meet again season. He basically did the same thing last year with todd. Gurley look at the numbers. Look at the quotes. He basically set the stage for the departure last year. That's why this was so compelling what happened yesterday is that he is setting the stage for the departure golf that it that is that much is clear now now what they'll get for him how they'll do it whether they'll be able to do it or not is uncertain but they they they would've gone from him and again he's less. Yeah that the exchange we had. We had similar exchange last year at rams park over the over over a conference room table with several meeting members about todd. Gurley the sad. I'm like would you trade. Todd gurley would you actually says i'm not saying that i'm just saying he was the same thing so given the history of this of the situation. There's only one conclusion you can draw on that. The rams moving your goal yeah. It's you know it's the how it's it's the. How can they do it. That is the big question. And i'm not smart enough to figure out salary caps and all that stuff sixty five million dollar hit twenty. Two million dollar had all that stuff but i mean. Is it weird. That he's quoting aaron rodgers in his aunts. Snow recruiting aaron rodgers quoted quarterback three times. Right that that stood out to you guys to completely he's quote yes I mean. I'm thinking maybe just trying to stir up the pot a little bit but in in you'd say and yes on face value and i'm like you steve. I'm not a cap gun. Order any of this stuff but how that works. But i do know. The rams once traded up from fifteenth. I get jared goff. I do know the rams you know dumb. Todd gurley and twenty million dollars just like that i do know they built a five billion dollar stadium in la. They got money. They got recklessness mean got fearlessness. i think it's fearlessness. Their bowl they wanna be better. Mcveigh they have a great coach. They have a great defense. They want a great quarterback. So i wouldn't put it past them to do anything. I would pass up to acquire anybody at any stretch of the imagination. I just i just wouldn't put it past them because they're looking at history. We're talking to bill plachy from the la bill de you believe we talked about aaron rodgers and head of the packers came out yesterday and said we're not idiots. We're not letting aaron rodgers go. Of course aaron could force it. Do you believe bill that. Aaron is on the packers week one next season. I'm going to say no real. I'm going to say given the empowerment of the athlete today. In these guys the nfl. See what happens. Jim be and he sees what he can come. I mean he can come to a place like la where he's got the number one defense in the league and he's got a running game and he's got a great coach and you know or or some other destination where he can get the super bowl quicker. He's running out on him and the ran. The packers just aren't put together the kind of team around him that they need to do. Yeah i'd say given the air of athlete empowerment. I won't be surprised courses. We out of their. What's interesting about aaron rodgers. Is i sorta dig this whole. You know it's all a mystery thing in it's about the moment and all that it's almost like he's he's almost like he's channeling phil jackson on some of this stuff out. He's really intelligent but he's also really he's gotten very philosophical about it it makes them. I actually like them because of that. Yeah no i think he's very area died about all this and that was easy. He's not packer. Blitzed through and through. I think he leaving a heartbeat. I think he'd go in a heartbeat. And i think also. Let's talk about how the season ended. His coach didn't trust him on fourth eight goal from the yard line. His coach didn't trust him to win the game for them. That's the bottom line right. He's coach thought he was smarter than aaron and thought he had four downs. Now that all plays into it feels like a deal. Breaker feels like a deal breaker. It does and i. I saw everybody says oh. La your dream your dream. I don't think again going back to hate to compare nfl the nba. Anthony davis forced to trade here. When it comes to la teams in the money they have and the power they have in the boldness. They show the is possible. Just beyond those days are saying this could never happen. I mean tom brady played tampa. Bay buccaneers. i'm beyond the days of saying it's gonna happen even in the nfl. So i think something's going to happen now. What's going to be. But i just cannot see i know for sure. I don't know about aaron rodgers. But i know jared goff not going to be the i cannot see him. Can you beat the starting quarterback. Absolutely not not after this absolutely no way. Yeah i don't. I don't think he. I don't think listening talks to you like that yesterday bill. If that's a possibility with you. I think why don't know what it looks like. But i think he's out. And i think his agent had to heard an interview heard or hurt that the quotes and had to be on the phone with less right away so i talked to another bill was already. I think the agent was already on. The phone went there and was benched. And we're gonna win. Twenty third was benched by wrote he. He was benched right. Do you think this is possibly. I talked to another agent today. And he threw this theory at me. He says what he thinks happened. Is that the rams went to jared. Goff is an agent and said hey we need to rework the deal we gave. We paid you early. We took care of you now. We need to improve the rest of the team. We need you to come back to the table. And rework the deal. Jared and his agent said no and that set in motion. What happened with you unless need yesterday. You buy that. He acted totally. See that happening. I mean he he he did mention. There is a possibility trying to light a fire. Or jared there is some tall that he's not the worker. Bee that a wolford or cooper copies. He's not he's not you know he's not the film that that mcveigh is that once. He got the big money he didn't you know eat. The intensity was a little bit down. I heard reports that. So maybe that's something to think yes. I think they're clearly mad at him. They're really mad. Really mad at him for something and And and i don't see how he comes back. They don't have the confidence in me. He's he'll basically till you're right john. They threw wonder the boss. Yeah yeah hey bill. On another subject This has been debated subject on the show here. And i wanted to get your take on it you when i have known each other a long time. Do you think serial killer is yes. Yes serial killer hair serial killer hair but my eyes are okay mason periodic jealous of your hair. Not your eyes. Oh you gotta be jealous. My hair right barbie private far. You're talking about anybody. Tear it takes me to take him a haircut five barbara five minutes ago by here time. Here yeah bill. I think that. I think we're going to be playing that clip that we played at the start of this. Say with you for a long time. And i think it's going to end up with another quarterback play until aaron rodgers gets here. That's right i think it's not too too crazy dream that i really. I really think history. They'll do anything let's need that's what i love. He'll do anything to make them better. He doesn't care he doesn't he'll he'll spend any amount of money he's been email draft pixel trade. Anybody you don't care. They want to get better. Yup good for. Hey bill thank you. Bill wrote a column about this today for the l. a. times and really good stuff as always thanks bill. Thank god theme. There's bill plachy so Yeah i mean can you there. It next year's kind of the grand opening of the stadium right next year is kind of. We assume that the vaccines are going to roll out and people will actually be able to go to a rams football game at suffice stadium. Son were the first time. Yeah some people. I think will be able to go but can you imagine the buzz talk about winning the day if less need in the rams can figure out a way to acquire aaron rodgers. That will be insane if they are able to do that. Just insane well and it could be someone other there. In rogers sharing economy matthew stafford. It could be russell. Wilson who had been shot citing. Yeah russell wilson unlikely but those are the three big ones right. Aaron rodgers shawn watson and matthew stafford. Sure to shawn. Watson isn't a better option. Look at his new is younger. Yeah i think he'd be working don't you. Yeah but he can. We sign shawn watson signed for four years right controlled. Yeah and he's younger. Aaron rodgers three eight years old. But i'll give me a couple of years of aaron rodgers. I'm seeing what tom brady. Is doing and forty-three. Gimme a couple of years of magical mystery tour. Whatever the hell aaron rueda full mystery novel mystery even listening to the beatles lately or something. Yeah why i told you. I just read that book. The last days of john lennon. So yeah. I've got kind of got beatles brain coming up next for you. John a very embarrassing moment for a los angeles city councilman yesterday. I've got that for you. Don't forget we got all the usual stuff coming up for you even though it's just a two hour show we're going to do the school we're going to do the game of games. It's plus two points today. it's lindsay's game will wind up lindsay on some subject. Probably something to do with cleveland all kinds of stuff coming up. Thank you very much for being out. There mason ireland seventeen. Espn there it is is a little bit. I keep talking about aaron rodgers and saying it's a magical mystery tour. It's actually a beautiful mystery tour right right. I guess it's not really a tour. Don't you think. He's like sounding like phil jackson all the sudden little bit. I'm in moment. i don't want to think about the future. It's a beautiful mystery. And that's why less need is quoting him. Can you imagine. can you imagine all right. So john kevin. Daily own is a city councilman representing boyle heights. Okay and he had a very awkward moment yesterday at a city council meeting hit that. Hey isn't it. Today is tuesday in time for the flag salute. please Lead us in the pledge of allegiance this morning. Oh no presents be another pledge allegiance to the flag of emad states american under visible allegiance to the flag on america. Oh no school.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america to the republic for which it scans one nation under god indivisible with liberty and justice for all you got it. How do you forget that. Now when ours. A little everybody saturday years when i was little kid to little kids still say it like at the beginning of the school day like really. Wasn't this big big point of contention and they pulled it out of schools. I think they still do. I'm going to ask my sister right now. Find out little because little kids. I did it probably until fifth grade every day. Well so much. Eagles wanted to take god out of it to a lot of people because says because forcing kids to believe in god or something like that you know people are michael. You can say it right.

I was four thirty four thirty five thirty five thirty six. You're adding you're adding an extra one. Suddenly bahamas yeah michael. How you feel about tonight's game. This is a big one right bombed on depressed. Why because airland knows when the lakers specially when the lakers are good koby shack lebron d. Magic corinne and the crew when the lakers a good and the sixers a good. There's no better atmosphere in basketball fan. Fan i mean i. This isn't a strong enough word. But they're just me. I mean they're yellen stuff about like go online and look up your girlfriend's name your sisters philly angry and philly because let's see the phillies never win. The the fliers don't win anything to eagles. One wants so that the frustrated fans. Yeah from philly and i said you guys booed santa claus and his immediate retorted. Me was that santa claus was drunk. You deserve to be boom. I think the only two athletes that have never been booed and philly. Because mike smith was booed and great. I think the only athletes has never been buddhist eight. I am dr j. gay. I called figure there. He was a coat and michael. J. did get buoy. I cannot match. Dr j. no i think it because classic doctor. No no no. No michael was over when you weren't with the blazers yet lake ocean but no in seventy seven what you get to the blazers. Seventy eight okay. So julius irving had they had lost to the blazers in the final saw. Yeah yeah and julius erving said we owe you wind and everybody made a big deal out of it well and then the next year they didn't win it or lakers wanted and then they would boom. Wow when he got introduced but then when he wanted he won everybody back. Oh of course. Here's my best. Filly story so anyway. Lindsay lindsay says the tech. Your sister they do. Say it in your nephews. He's in third grade and he she said he says it everyday. Good good so my best stories. So my aunt maj live. I've told the story before. My aunt maj lived in philly and my aunt man. Great name. why don't they keep naming kids that name. Yeah imagine beautiful name edge so so my aunt maj used to run numbers for the mob and i remember as a little kid. My aunt maj would go for a walk every day and she would stop into stores and stop on people. Stoops and i would just be walking. I had no idea. I just thought she knew everybody. I thought she was friends with. Everybody wanted to go say hi instead. She was actually running numbers. So when i was a little kid the first wedding i ever went to was my cousin. Maureen matches daughter. And a guy named dicky defago and sounds like he's right at a casino and it was a mob wedding. It was the hardest. I have ever been to and about ten years later. I think we stopped talking about dicky because he stopped showing up because he got in trouble. We are very certain that he got wack. Wow wow very certain dickie guy wax z. Philadelphia is a tough town. And you're and by the way the reason we're talking about this is lakers sixers tonight. Four thirty michael. And i'll have the call on the laker radio network it'll be on regular. Espn tv. i think it's on spectrum. Also michael wouldn't you if you had an mvp valid vote. Lebron one joel. Embiid to yeah. That's yeah that's so far like would you put third. I'd put yokich slurred. Yeah yeah he's third even denver's kind of underachieving but he is having a great year john. Lucas been really good now. Dallas has been a dump dumpster dumps by the way i think. Last time i checked. He was leading the league in assists such a brilliant amazing. Yeah hey may his great player. Since we're at the end of the and i wanted to wait till michael got here to do this. We often say a king last week. Hail fellow well met yes. I have a hail madame. Well met michael. Didn't know i was going to do this. But we when we fly during the season with the lakers the flight attendants take such good care of us. Especially michael and i like like they always check on us. I always make sure that we're we're doing good and the biggest laker fan of all of our flight attendants a woman named linda cooper and we got the word yesterday that linda unexpectedly passed away. You know we're losing a lot of people. I don't know if it was covered later or not. She was in her sixty. She's still pretty young. But i wanted to give her a shoutout. Michael i know a that. Linda would she would. Linda was such a big laker fan. That when we were playing home game so linda would take a stall the road games on delta. And we're playing home game. She would come say hi to michael and i. Yeah that's how that's how into it. It was she lives. Sweet lady always took such good care of on. The planes betas hated to go back home to our wives. Because he's a julie tip like this in a waiting on us. Make sure. I got my food i because i usually got my food. Last on the plane may speakers. I sat in the last seat in the back and And and coach. So i would always get serve last after island. Everybody'll eat already. Eaten but linda is make sure that i was able to get food early. But yes she was so yeah you played in the nba. You get special treatment. You know the the the one of the coolest things that can say about linda. Mace is that almost everybody on the plane thought that we were her favourite. Yeah you know she made everybody think that right. You know me. Trudell billy mack. Allison you know everybody. And so hail. Madame well-meant linda and her family or family in south carolina but But we're going to miss her tremendously. And i know a lot of people are losing people and yeah and so Our hearts go out to linda and michael. I was talking to another one of the flight attendants today and she made the point. I didn't even think about it. Her absolute favorite player ever was koby and now they ended up at passing away on the same date. Which is weird way somehow appropriate. But we're gonna miss her so thanks for letting me get that in there. Sure sure all right. So coming up next. Foia the hazards of facetime. Dating a lot of people are now dating on facetime really because of kobe. Yeah yeah plus a brand new thing that we're gonna start around here. John i will explain it to you next. Mason ireland seven ten. Espn bag on mason day. There's nothing wrong with my eyes. What about them makes them. Serial killer is creepy. Y creepy creepy. You've got like your little beady eyes like you're up to something the one thing people. I tweeted that out. The one thing people say is that. I don't blink when i do those video promos. Oh excellent blinking. Maybe that's what it is all right. So john I've given out our email address a bunch of times. I used to give out years. But now i'm giving out the official show email address which is then s mace at gmail.com. And so i want to start reading the best email every day on the show the best email we get bringing up at g mail and today i just wanted to mention this guy. He's got a podcast name. Is cameron moynihan. You know what makes them famous. John cameron moignan. Espn los angeles nagai. Yup the guy. Oh good for him. he's been immortalized. Yeah got a podcast. It's cam dot cast and you could say anything by the way in these in these emails and cameron. Thank you one of the things. I've been looking for and you can email an mp three because lindsey voicemail anymore right lindsay. You're done with voicemail. You don't wanna do that. You know you guys just stopped doing it. Okay so you can email an mp three of a new jingle that we can try. And i will sort through them and we'll figure out if there's one that we can add to seven ten. Espn los angeles sports. So we'll do that again. It's venice mesa dot com all right so john interesting story a lot of people now because of covid have been video dating so this is a story about an even like match dot com. Now it's not just a verbal profile. That you right out you can actually video date on match dot com. And this is the story of an actress named casey boycotts. She's twenty four years old and she started video. Dating a girl named allie. Who's a twenty six year old actress back in march so just the pandemic restarting and they started setting up facetime dates and they would make cocktails forum And after dating for four months she says casey says. I don't think i've talked to someone on the phone for that long. Since i was a middle schooler. We learned so much about each other spent so long talking to each other and felt like we were in a relationship. I had talked to her so long. And the only part. That was weird. As i wondered how we going to hold hands. We'll surprisingly they have their first in-person date after quarantining for ten days. They decide okay. We're gonna meet complete failure When it came to the hug she felt off the remainder of the evening. They never touched when the date ended. They never spoke again after spending hours on the phone with somebody why did you. Why do you think it didn't work. So there is no physical connection physical connection all it was was me on one phone her on the phone. We're talking on facetime. we're drinking cocktails. They talk on the phone for all hours of the day and night. 'cause they think they're falling in love then they meet each other and it's like bam it's over. They never speak again. I did you ever go and completely blind date single. I never went on one completely blind. I like i met. I met girls for coffee occasions. Somebody else would have set up. Yup but i. I don't think i would go very far down the road of a relationship without meeting someone in person. I got to see him or be there in person but he did. I don't know if that's realistic. When i think it is. I think certain people have a smell about him like a sent. Have you ever that that. Somebody's gotta sent to them chur. I think that's what it is. I think you meet somebody you talk and by the way this can work like my brother. Talk to somebody for hours and hours an email back and forth over a period of three months. They ended up getting married together when they actually met. So it can. It can't work but it's weird in the dating scene right now because you really have no choice but to video date lindsay. Have you been video dating at all. No i'm not not a big video data. I don't think i would ever do that. You're not you've got a crazy guy emailing or texting you. I guess now. How did you meet that guy. Lindsay was that one of your friends. Hooked you to of you hours. I got i d- brothers. Friends friend was not against that. I'm not against like to. You should meet my friend. john. Read my friend lindsay. And but i don't think i would let it go very far without ever meeting them in person when those girls met mace they finally figured out. Hey we just formed a bond a friendship and then they cut to see each other face to face. They didn't feel that romantic spark but more like a friend but they never spoke to each other again michael. Well it's probably from the big disappointment because they thought this was the love of my life. Then they finally meet and they just didn't feel that connection so you just don't want to feel awkward after that a series of blind coffee dates when i was in the market as they say twenty years ago and sometimes i would just look at the guy and i would say look. You seem like a nice guy but this is not going to happen. This is not gonna happen to let them know. There was over because otherwise i want to sit there and have coffee and pretend like something's going to happen when it's not going to happen. Just look at the guy and say no not going to happen not feeling nice meeting you. Not there. Sorry about that. I worked with the news photographer once and i was out with them all day. And we're shooting stories like we were. This was when i was working in san diego and so we're chargers practice we're working on a feature. We get the thing done and all throughout the day. He was telling me about this date. He had yep that he had to be done yet to be out of the station by six o'clock because he was going out on this date at seven kind of excited about it and it's seven fifteen. I stayed late and was working on the story and seven fifteen. He comes walking back in the door. And i go what happened to your date. He said it's over said why you meet. It's over goes walked in sat down to for five minutes and said this isn't working. I'm out why. Extend it. Because i make it last any longer. If it's never going to wipe pretend like it's going to happen. It was easier for me to say this is never gonna happen route to walk away after five minutes like my friend did No because you're wasting the other person's time why let the other person think there might be something happened. And when there's nothing and i felt the most convenient thing was just to say this has never happened in nice meeting. This never happened. Maybe that's wow. I think it is true. Yeah michael did you hear our mean tweet segment yesterday. Were bergman amanda read mean tweets about mason. I know who would say stuff about you. Guys ought we have. We have a new one. That morales is just put together. You ready yeah. I'm ready all right here. We got at our gwenda real. I find add. Venice dog voice for sophie. So annoying i fast forward through it. And i know as we'll say screw you but no screw you and your pathetic dog voice dog voice. My dog sophie has got a voice. This is southie. How don't your michael. you don't have dogs too. You know well you have. Rocco rocco yeah. Does your dog have a voice. That's closed off. Rocco had a voice. He what sounds like. Probably louis armstrong allow. See i've got two dogs and they can have conversations. I've got a bulldog. He can't have a voice mike tyson or michael jackson. I've got i've got frayed. Whose italian. He's he's from the old country from napoli and i've got sophie kansas and they can have conversations like hypothetically hi. Hello how're you. Doing sophie they can have full conversations. Taylor okay hold on. I accused frago of being fake italian. No atwitter here's the old country michael. Do you ever watch those hallmark movies. And they'd like to use all the same actors actresses for all the movies every once in a while for some reason they'll give him an accent. Yeah and they don't need one and so like right there mason. You just said. I'm from the old country. You talion right but you didn't you didn't. There was no accent when you said country. I am italian. Oh works totally. The mario brothers by the way one of the emails today is why doesn't hor. Hey ever make up a game. Why don't you make he does. Why don't you going to say. Does he does more work than anybody else. He doesn't have time to make up games. Win may think about it. We all any sound that we run on the show we send george. Yeah and then. George scrambles to put it on the wanna put it.

Mason and Ireland HR 1: Across The World

"Hey Hey guys suggests we mark four and a half weeks of doing the show Liam houses today. Yes wow I cal- half weeks this week. Excess weekend is what started the NBA playoffs man. Come on that's six years for this. Can you imagine God? Can you imagine you know? I don't say I'M GONNA be optimimistic today. I'm going to be positive. I'm going to be optimistic. I think it's all coming back in some way shape or form. I think it's all coming back John. And there were inching our way towards it certain states or now trying to Sort of reintegrate the world into daily life and we hope that all goes well maintaining social distance etc. One thing that bummed me out was they officially cancelled the Taylor. Swift concert at so-fi stadium which was scheduled those the grand opening of S-o-f-i on July the twenty six and you know my first question is when do I get my money back Wait a minute. So they officially cancelled it now. Yeah officially cancelled her weight. I wonder when Wendy in your own head when you think you're going to set foot in that stadium. God I hope by the end of the season right. Don't Know No. I think we're going to have football. Fans Yeah I mean. I hope I hope. By the end of the season I get to experience a game it. So even if it's with social distancing even if it's you know a handful of people per section I hope we get some experience of suffice. Stadium this year There was a public survey that I came across here. That says forty six percent of people in a survey conducted by Seton Hall. Say that the NFL season should be delayed. Only thirty six percent feel the seasons should start on time. I have a feeling I've a feeling there's going to be a delay of some kind but I do feel like there's going to be an NFL season. I think people are starting to get the right perspective and not everybody's Bill plachy not. Everybody is just cancel the rest of the. Nothing's going to happen. Why even waste your time talking about? No not everybody's that there are so many smart minds out there right now. Working on plans that will help bring us back to sports in some way shape or form and sports can help lead us out of this thing as it has led us out of terrible disaster to let us out of World War Two got US through Vietnam. Got Us through nine eleven. I mean tr- gray tragedies in American history sports has helped lead the way out of those things and I think people understand the importance of it. Well we're going to. You're GonNa hear an interview we did. We taped it last night. We're GONNA play it in about fifteen minutes with a guy named Dan who's in Korea. He's he's an American. He's baseball player and they're already starting to play baseball in Korea. Their playing squad games now. They're they're turning the corner now. They don't expect they're going to be with fans and most of the seasons seem to be getting made art to control crowds but on the other end mace. I just you know I just saw live picture of the beaches in Florida which they reopened today and there's hundreds of people on the betray now. Yeah I mean. I hope that works. I hope that works out. You know who who knows what happens when you put all those together. It's sort of a great big lab experiment and every time something like that happens. They open up something and they all go to the beach. We get some data Adam. Silver did a call. Today they may still be going on he did a call with NBA media and he said the data owners call this morning and Bob Eiger the CEO of Disney was on the call and he said you know people keep asking him when. When can we do this and win we can? We do that and standard. Answer is it's not about the date it's about the data. It's in every time something like the you know. We're going to talk to Dan straightly something like a South Korean baseball league happens. We get more data every time one hundred people go to the beach at the same time in Florida. We get more data so anything that brings us more data. If you're a glass half full guy and you and I kind of are where the Anti Skis. I don't I think Jay Ski. I think bill's did wrong. I think we are going to see sports in some way shape or form and not only. Are we going to see it in twenty twenty? I think we're GONNA see it in the summer of twenty twenty. I think we're going to get it in June July and August this year. We're already getting golf in June. Yeah we're getting I mean I'm guess I mean if you were to ask me. Put me on a lie detector. I would say to lie. June probably seems too soon but July seems realistic to me that that we are going to see in some way shape and I think we're GONNA see by the way basketball lead the way out of that because you can operate a basketball game with just fewer people. You've got game personnel. You've got officials and you've got teams of Say Fifteen People and coaching staffs of five. You can really dramatically limit the number of people involved in the case of baseball. It's it's more people in the in the case of football it's the most people that it requires to put on a game so I think base basketball is going to be the way that we see what the world looks like in this sort of two point zero version. I you agree with that. Yeah and just so you know you guys can kind of get your head around all these stories that are being reported. I'm kind of following this. Call that silver is on right now with the NBA media and he just said that in terms of all these bubble proposals like the one where they go to vegas or they go to one spot. He's not seriously engaged in any of them. He says that he's only listen to them. And has an investigated. Putting ON A BUBBLE TYPE SCENARIO IN VEGAS ORLANDO or any of them. He said he stole just listening and not seriously engaged in any of them. So that would lend itself to your theory. That July is probably more reasonable. Yeah Yeah and you know and I think that you know the one thing we gotta get our head around is and we'll talk about this with Dan. Stray Leo here in just a couple of minutes is the idea of testing and temperature checking and all that kind of stuff is something that we're probably going to get used to even if we do on a limited basis go back as fans probably temperature. Checks are going to be something that we're going to have to do on a regular on a regular basis You know the the exciting thing about this weekend and there are by the way you won your bet with Alli Brocchi handling I thought. Zach Levine was kind of a jerk. He was making he was doing shots. That were physically impossible for Allie. Quigley to do. I thought I thought he kind of had the thing rigged did not know. I thought that That they weren't letting him dunk so he was doing stuff in the air that it is impossible for Allie. Quigley down the height to be able to do that stuff in the air. I thought it was just going to be a shooting contest. I don't think anybody's taking a very few people have taken threes. Who won the other matchup? Mike Conley when the whole thing and I think Mike Conley had a distinct advantage. Yeah Mike Conley had an indoor gym. He was the only one of the competitors who had an into so he had no weather. Variables Zach Levine. Was Shooting at an outdoor court and frankly so is everybody else Mike Conley though I should have thought more about this Mike. Conley is the most ambidextrous player in the NBA. He makes us many shots right handed as he does left-handed Michael when we do the Games amphibious he which which isn't doesn't actually make sense. Well whatever does the but kindly D- shot a lot of shots with his offhand. That Levine couldn't make you think that's unfair no no I. Don't think making shots with your offhand. You should. He should've cut her a break. Because she's a girl I just think what she. Yeah she can't get she can't get up in the air for a reverse dock with her bought with your legs there gnomes. Well I mean or or get up in the air that high and and be able to get the ball through your legs and doer reverse at the same time. It's just not fair to expect that I mean I thought it was just going to be a shooting contest I thought even Zach Levine said. I'm not cheating. I'm not cheating but I'm competitive. I thought it was kind of. I thought it was kind of On cool you think I didn't know about was I did not know the story. Of Courtney Vander sloot and Allie Quigley. That they are a married couple and they play on the same team in one advantage. That must be that has to be a first right. Oh yeah the. Wnba draft is tonight and And we eat like especially now the the the PR guy for the sparks. Reach out to me this week and he said. Hey if you guys Wanna get Chalet or or Derek Fisher. Candace parker or any of those people on. We can do it and now's the time to do it. We should talk zones guys because Brunei rescue. Who'S GOING TO BE? The number one pick tonight is was Geena. Bryant's favourite player. Guess she spoke at the memorial. Yeah so we can get into what we should definitely get Dirk Fischer because he can talk about the Wnba he can also talk about the rest of the NBA right and all these games that they keep rerunning on ESPN every night. He's in a hold of him. Yeah he is. He's in all of them. You know I have this big idea John. Sometimes I've got a big idea and this is a big one. So do you have Michael. The I don't know if you've heard this Jason Alexander Okay no this. Is Jason Alexander on a piano at his house and you. I was completely amazed by this platform a some Fox. Lactic get away from other blood Hudson River New York stay so I am so impressed. That George from Seinfeld is able to perform that song as well as he does. You thought that was good. I thought it was awesome. Did you think that was good? That was an affront to billy Joel. Man Way that was an awesome version on my gosh. That was it was priceless. Looks good about it. Well first of all I think the vocal was great. Don't forget he want. I didn't even know that he wanted to Tony. For best actor in a musical on Broadway right. He should not try and sing. Billy Joel Songs. I thought he nailed that detailed. That Lindsey panelist on on the voice. Do you think Jason Alexander makes it to the next round definitely did it nail it. I am not turning my Turk Mason. Sounds like he would've turned his chair around. In the first five seconds I think in my chair around at all he signed his. I think like broad Broadway. John might have better. Voice is the Paula. Abdul of the panel was outstanding. I'm doing is I'm in cal- funds. What did you think I thought it was good? It was okay. Aren't you watch the video? And he's playing a piano and you know doing all that stuff. It's Great Mason put up a poll. Yeah fewer judge on a music show. Would you have given a thumbs up or thumbs down to Jason Alexander Okay? I'm putting up right now and coming up next you can hear an interview. We taped in we typically last night right after the show. Dan straightly and Lindsey. The reason we did is because when we're on the air that's when he's at practice right well they're sixteen hours ahead of us so when we taped it yesterday at six thirty. He was just getting ready to go to. I think he was just getting ready to go to the ballpark but he actually hit an off day yesterday. So ten thirty. Am Tomorrow Confront. Also when we come back play Billy Joel's version of New York. We listen to the good part of Jason. Alexander is no good part. Yes there is. He is a big finish to that. Terry is a Finnish to that song. Never getting a Gig on any music show. I cannot believe we have this. Level of disconnect. Yes that is a guy from Seinfeld on piano in his living room. Doing New York state of mind by himself on Instagram live version. It shouldn't stayed by. I WANT YOU TO Q. In just just so. We're fair after after danced railing of it to into the big finish banish So we'll we'll do that coming up and I put the poll up. What do you think of Jason Alexander's version of New York state of mind? Awesome or terrible. Awesome or terrible okay. So we'll keep track of that for you to Mason. I I still have gotten to my big idea. I've still have a big idea. Based on what Alexander based on that I already voting no okay. I'm voting on it already in advance. Mason Ireland seven ten. Espn our guest has been a big leaguer in in the US for eight years including a couple of really good seasons fourteen in eight for the reds in two thousand sixteen now. He is in South Korea preparing for his first season overseas in what is got to be a surreal environment. Stray lease here. Hey Dan how are you? I'm great how are you guys doing? We're good Dan. We appreciate you doing this. Were you in South Korea win? The pandemic broke out. If you've been over there dealing with this the whole time no we. We're very fortunate. We're in south. Australia has an our spring training We kind of we've I've I've been very fortunate to avoid all like quarantine mandatory quarantine situations as we've moved around the world getting ready for essentially so we had to. We got delayed there because we were not allowed to come back here because the quarantine so we spent more time in Australia avoiding it. So how long have you been in South Korea? Now just think just over a month right right right around him on. Maybe just a little bit over. Korea has been a little bit ahead of us in other words the the cove nineteen got there before it got to the United States and peaked their first and is now receding there. So what's the state of things now moving around and pretty much Pretty much like normal not supposed to gather in large groups. Um So baseball games. Obviously fans right now But they did the same thing like they have a basketball league over here. They immediately cancelled that they cancelled a lot of different things You know I'm not sure if gatherings like church gatherings are loud yet or not We get updates constant our phone but there in on that first we were asking our translator all the time like. Hey what's this say what's to say. Hey what's this say and now we're just like hey let us know anything crazy options and we need to know about it so The sense over here is that obviously everyone's still you know doing their part being safe but at the same time gaining a little bit of that normalcy back. And we're talking about your good. Oh this is just like last night. We were able to go out to eat dinner which I know that sounds like such a foreign concept to people back home in America right now right but but a good one. We'd we'd love to get that back. We're talking to Dan Streuli. Who is playing in the Korean Baseball? League? Dan has has the way we know baseball. And the way you know baseball are there. Any rule changes that that that have been implemented it because of the current virus in other words are the catcher in the empire. Still standing right next to each other is are there still normal? Bang Bang plays at second base or if they made adjustments in any way only adjustment. I've been made aware of so far. Unpire wear masks like a requirement. And that's that's it like that's as far as I've I've heard The idea I think over here is that we weren't gonNA start until everything was deemed completely safe and until the the the powers that be the decision makers in the government decided that it was safe for us to start baseball So they're they didn't WANNA change the game. They just wanted to make sure that it was like you know were roll out when we feel safe enough. Everyone's participate without without a great risk of anything. So have you been tested or are they? Are they testing guys regularly? How does that part of it work? You don't get tested for the virus. You have a fever or showing symptoms over here and so but every single day when you walk into the baseball field you pass and right in front of US security camera that is like the infrared cameras that you like see like at the airport and so if you have temperature. The alarm goes off We had one case where a guy had a slight temperature. I believe the the conversion we did like he was like ninety nine degrees and with that was enough of the temperature that they felt that like he had other symptoms that he wasn't feeling well that was enough maturity cancelled practice. Everybody go home and stay at your place until he gets his test back and we'll go from there and he came back and he just wasn't feeling well he was fine He was negative for negative for the virus and so we came in the next day at practice. He's just a few days off mature he was feeling better. Came back to practice so they're just being very cautious and very smart about how we and deciding when we gathered when we practice when we play games and so like those like logistics. We're not getting tested for the virus. But we're getting tested daily in terms of like our temperature and making sure that we're all given masks and washing hands and hand sanitizer and trying not to like. I feel like little things that are weird to do baseball if they're telling you not to do like he's normal too in baseball they're telling you to high each other. It's like try to avoid those things and we're doing the best we can. Dan straightly is with us. Stand pitch for several years in the major leagues. In July of last year he went to the phillies and then in December Dan. You signed a one year contract to play in the Korean league. I'm curious you mentioned. No FANS ARE FAMILIES. Allowed to be in the stands like are. Do you have any family over there with you or you over there on your own. Like what's the story with like people that live with you at your house or are they allowed to come to the Games? You know we were actually asking that question the other day. And we're awaiting our answer. My family is not here. They would be but right now. It's not a good time to be traveling. It's just not time for that We actually only have one coaching one. One American who's he's a coach whose families over here right now and they got here and they had to sit in his apartment for fourteen days without leaving without any human contact In order to be allowed into the country. And that's what they're doing with anybody that comes in any anybody coming in right now have to do that And it it's absurd but like they track your phone. They do everything like they make. Sure that you're staying. Put you check in constantly with the you have like every everything's being. Jack. You're not allowed to leave your space and My son's two and a half. My wife is an absolute absolute trooper. But there's no way I would ever ask her to go through that with a wild tuna trilled to come sit in a small apartment for fourteen days straight. So they're just they're they're they're Corinthian and Oregon so they're they're at home just getting through like everybody else dinner. You actually playing games on the schedule or you guys playing interest squad games. What's what's going on with that. Yeah so we've been playing baseball games and getting really boring They've been televising them which has been awesome giving the people of South Korea their baseball And then next Tuesday. We start playing Spring Training Games and we get four like it. It's like I know that sounds absurd. Compared to what we're used to like we had we had ten on the schedule and six and five hundred on the floor and We're doing those four games and like five or six days and then if everything goes smoothly we start our opening day early will have official games. Starting in early May Major League pitcher who is pitching in his first season in the Korean base. While again I know this sounds weird but most people over here can't see what baseball might look like in three or four months. Everybody is. They're not even letting US gather at all. Do you believe I'm sure you've thought about this? And I know you have friends and former teammates. Do you think we'll see baseball in the states? In twenty twenty. And do you think we'll see it in stadiums or what do you think we'll baseball look like your two months from now? That's a crystal ball question right there like I really i. I really hope that we get baseball. Because that means that we've probably found a cure for the virus or vaccine for the virus or the country is. He's doing so much better so in a way like I just I really hope we get baseball at the country's just trending in the right direction But you know I think it's one of those situations that we can all talk and say like I'm I'm glad I'm not the one in charge of making that decision on when where and how baseball moves forward because that's a lot of pressure and Yeah I don't have an answer for that. I'm just glad I'm not the one that has to decide when y when where and how. That's GonNa Look Dan. You mentioned the guy that had the ninety nine degree temperature one day and everybody had to evacuate have. Have you guys talked about what happens if somebody comes in and actually test positive for covert nineteen? What would happen Yeah we we shutdown stopped. We stopped practice. We stop everything I don't know I'm trying to call. I think they don't WanNa keeping us from us. It's like you know I haven't reached out and asked because like there's no I don't WanNA panic myself. I don't WanNa create more worrier stress. That's on needed. So but they have. I know they have a protocol but he was like if someone has it. We just we stop operation and I imagine we all get tested imagined everything. The whole stadium gets clean and are seeing. It's pushed back even further and that's why they're emphasizing to US players. Like you know it's okay to go to the grocery stores. Go get some food to do this. But like avoid crowded places. And that's because if anybody tests like positive for the virus than our whole season for the whole and that's not just our team that's all the league that if anybody gets the virus I believe. Our season is delayed further so That's that's a pretty I mean it's it's it's Kinda hard to say with really good protocol for because nobody wants to be responsible for shutting down the season even further so everybody just do your do your part and stay home. Stay stay safe lesson for me Dan. The you mentioned no fans and you mentioned that they want to keep the numbers down. We've been seeing reports that and I know you may not have encountered this yet. But they're putting cardboard cutouts and some of the stands they're putting robots out there. They're trying to monetize. Maybe put some advertising in the stands is is pitching or playing a game with no fans. Is that going to be a really weird thing or I would think that in high school and maybe in some of the minor leagues. You didn't have a lot of fans what's it like. Or what do you anticipate? It'll be like playing an empty stadiums. You know we've we've joked around about it quite a bit but it's a it's it's you when you're when you're watching the game from the dugout like the days. I'm not pitching you're just like wow like. There's no energy in here like this place is dead quiet like you're just kind of like you know. What are we doing and then the days? I've pitching though I've never even really noticed that it was empty. Because you're just so dialed in and focus on your jobs at like and even though the game like you still like you you you you take pride in a as a professional athlete you take pride in everything you do. You WanNA put your you know it's your it's your your outing your game you you. WanNa put a product on the field that you like proud of and so I don't even really notice it when I'm performing but when you're it's really weird when you're like sitting in the dugout between starts and you're like this is just quiet and you know. I guess I'm my team is known for having allowed a stadium. The most bands like just all kind of stuff and so being there and just dead silence and we actually had to go we start. We asked for our general manager if we could get some music on between ending because it's just like awkwardly quiet and I heard the idea tossed around fan noise during Games Just like you know. Crowd noise that have be playing on the stadium speakers just to try to emulate some sort of normalcy But you know it'd be could you imagine like the Yankees Red Sox playing without any heckling? No it'll be awkward. Yeah yeah it's really weird. It's going to be really weird. Hey Listen Dan we appreciate you spending a couple of minutes with us. We wish you lots of success during your season there in in Korea and above all stay safe driving so there's dance trailer. Who JOINS US? We recorded that last night because of the time change. It's already tomorrow and South Korea all that stuff Gives you a little bit of a flavor of how it might work and that includes temperature checks for players when they go into the ballpark not necessarily testing? Which is interesting. Which I thought was kind of surprising. Didn't you John? Yeah and I think that the thing I was most encouraged by was no like ridiculous game altering things like no pires said. We're wearing masks. Which is not surprising. The but the catcher was right behind the plate. The Pros Redmond the catcher. The plays at second base where the same day he said they were doing some social distancing in the dugout but it that's a very good lab experiment for the United States. If that league goes well for a couple of months then I think we get it up and running so I'm going to be we're going to check back in with straight we later this summer and we're rooting for him. Obviously absolutely absolutely it Becomes the template for how we might be able to do the same thing so speaking in baseball Joining us next one of the biggest baseball fans that we know Clinton Yates is GONNA join us. He's got a brand new baseball tonight. Live show that he's doing with Tim. Kirkman I guess every night even now we'll ask them. We'll find out a lot but we'll chat with him. We'll talk to Clinton Yates coming up next for a little bit later bill. Walton's going to join us a hall of Famer. He's doing a big thing tomorrow. Called bike for humanity to help raise money for Cova nineteen causes. So we'll talk to Bill Walton about that plus we gotta senior shot out and I've got a big idea to pitch to everybody and we got a bunch of voicemails to get two five three zero. Espn seven ten. That's five three zero three seven seven sixty seven ten Mason Ireland seven. Espn now this is what a singer sounds like. He's GonNa Forget Orchestra. It's a completely different thing. This is what are you talking about. His nickname is the piano man. Listen TO IT. It's a full orchestra. It's a full ban. It makes a difference. You can you alone member of the George Costanza Sing along club. You cannot compare what Billy Joel is doing with a full orchestra to what to what Jason Alexander did on his piano in his house just to cheer people up and here you are bagging on the poor guy So that's billy Joel with a full orchestra in concert. Wherever the holiest now constant q into the to the highlight of of I want I. I shouldn't call him George to to Jason Alexander Guide yet it really SNL skit. He's sitting in his living room playing the piano. Have you ever tried to play the piano and sang at the same time Broadway? No and nor will I think more New York Bring it home pitcher. Mayors you hear Tony Tony Wetter. Grammy Winner Jason Alexander in his living room singing New York state of mind. And you guys were just bagging. The living hell out of them. The here's Eddie. The reaction in Eddie C Mason. You have the worst taste in music ever from Jeff Ireland regarding Jason Alexander's Rendition. I've said it before and I'll say it again. That was Poopie. We even had a voicemail. Okay here it is here. It is forty six percent. Say Awesome fifty four percent say terrible. We've got forty six percent. Well that's because people people are impressed by it. Forty six percent of the people for almost half. It's almost fifty fifty. You play the voicemail Nathan your home down. You cannot judge music every day. It's almost fifty fifty on whether or not it's awesome or terrible influence you for those of you. Who What? Tickets to the case in Alexander's sing along at the Hollywood bowl at Venice maze. Hey running sold out. Billy Joel has never won a Tony Award. Billy Joel ever even play. Tony Lists Jason. Alexander has won a Grammy Award. Yes you're right. He is one of the elite songstress seniors of the poor guy. I Call Cope. Jason Alexander Get Jason Alexander on the show. Now I mean. What are the odds? We're GONNA GET HIM ON. The show tweet is from Laker Room. And it says I like Iran's logo now you like this with your head running running fifty fifty whether you like it or not or not. The people agree with me. Feel pretty good about half the people half the people think it's awesome. People think it's terrible. If you put the Billy Joel version out what do you think would be with a full orchestra? In which really honestly think that. That's the difference that if we find the one from the nine eleven tribute where he's just playing the piano. It's not easy to get find the one from nine eleven trivia where he's just playing the piano and It would be completely that that song. It's not good. I can't really not big stage. He's on a stand up piano in his living room. Have you watched this? He's GONNA stand up piano. It is live I heard it. It's terrible and half the people disagree with you which is fine but literally figuratively hit song. You need like eighty percent of the peace trying to have a hit song. He's trying to play. He's trying to cheer people up a little bit depressed me that that was an affront to Joel so then I don't know how you're gonNA feel about the big idea. What's the big idea? So so our song in Los Angeles is I love. La that class okay. So what do you think the odds are? We can on voicemail and with a singing lines put together a version of I love. La Absolutely terrible idea. You really tickets terrible. Why it because it. Because we don't need to would you? Would you remake chinatown bothers? It's not a matter of remake can play a fifteen year old song at the end to Laker Games. 'cause it's perfect. I know but I want our listeners. To be able to participate in something on voicemail. We do it in every day for everybody to sing a line. Now they're doing it every day. I mean the voice mail is great. I think we should play any voice mail that comes in if they WANNA sing matter anything else I think redoing I love l a with a different renewing argue. I do say you just said let's Redo. La is ever going to Redo it but do attribute to it absolutely Lindsay. Would it be attributed or an affront if we tried to sing? I Love La. I think it would be. I don't know because I've got. We've got a couple listeners. Have sent in really good stuff like musically. This just overpass like day right then and then. You've got the other ones where it's just like. Oh my God. It's a complete nightmare. Both of those could be good voicemails. That good citizen. The bad ones okay. Somebody Voice Malice The first verse of I love. La by Randy Newman. By the way Randy Newman would be a great guest right now. He's already on my list. We're going to Redo greatest song ever with singing. I'm not asking anybody to cover it. I'm asking listeners. To pay tribute to the city of Los Angeles is a cover to cover. Nobody's covering it. We take la. We're taking a bunch of different lines. I don't know why you're against like coming up with with interesting stuff to do while you anti interesting stuff to do. I'm not saying that we shouldn't play the voicemails. I'm seeing that you and I should not try and sing randy. Newman's I love edit voicemails together so we've got version of. I love La if we're going to do it. Like I think just like for sound quality purposes we should have people like email it to us like either like on their voice recorder on their phone or on the computer. Something because the voicemail. It's just the quality of the phone call so we could have emailed us just like one of our listeners. Email song earlier stand tastic He he emailed us a voicemail. He emailed us a song like a whole song. He created for the show really. Oh that's good okay cool. Why haven't we played that the show started? We play it right now. It's a it's a three hour show good replayed now before we call Clinton or we could play it later when we sit on it. And we'll talk to Clinton coming up next okay so Clinton Yates is coming up next. He's got a brand new baseball show with Tim. Kirch in We'll talk to him about the state of baseball. We talked to Dan Stralia already and got some ideas about how baseball might be able to move forward and hang on. Freddie prints is saying that Billy Joel has won a Tony Award was the play. He must have done well. No they did a play based on all his music. They need a play called moving moving out. Yeah I WANNA Tony. Not for singing but for them doing a jukebox musical. Yeah good point good point all right. Clinton was coming up next for you. Mason in Ireland seven ten. Espn optimism and Thursday. Seattle them positively. We are excited to be on the air with you guys today. Thank you for listening. We're all getting through this thing together. Couple of poll. Actually I didn't tell you about pull I put up John. This was four better. Call Saul fans. Do you think Kim Wexler gets out of this season alive. I don't by the way although right now I'm a no I also know. Forty-two percent say she survives fifty eight percent say no way so the lien is no way and on Jason Alexander's version of New York state of mind. It is now forty. Eight percent awesome fifty two percent terrible. Okay so we're welcoming Clinton Yates to the program. Who's hosting a new baseball tonight? Show any Clinton. How are you holding up? I'm good and hold on. I have to check in on this. This Alexander Situation. Yeah no I was just going to play it for you. Have you heard it okay. I've heard it. I was listening to this show so I will not force you to play the sound but here it's going to take on this okay now while as much as I except Ireland is in. Its own right. This is garbage. I'm with you in that. He did it in that spot and at that level of execution with no you know no hurry. Up No quiver. He nailed it for what he was doing. I'm giving it of credit on both fronts. No I don't want to listen to that but during this time for him to pull that off in that way I respect him for doing it. That's splitting. Here's here's here's the difference Mason Ex. Mesa they actually played that thinking that listeners. We're going to be touched that listeners. Forty percent of people said listeners would think that Oh my gosh. What a moving piece of music and its hackery. I mean there is no he just put your the saw. Set it up. Well I was ties into you've jumped in talking about the musicality of it which is never the point out. You know I get it. I mean it was fun enough. I don't need that for me. You won't see me anywhere close to doing that kind of a bit. But that's why I'm not a singer nor my famous actor runtime exactly exactly so. Clean your show every day. You're doing a baseball show every day every week. Now what we're doing is for something called MLB MLB for two days. You know they show old games on the network and we started with twenty one. Thirty one talked to cal- Tim Kirk about that Last week we had of course right here in Los Angeles nineteen eighty eight game. One of the world series. He joined US recall. He was on deck. When Kirk Gibson hit that home one gay one so it was a little condo. I would say I'll tease next week. We're doing the double nineteen ninety-five Seattle Mariners Can't tell you who the guests are going to be just yet. But that's that's where we are. Now that's cool man. That's fun and coaching is A. He's a living legend. Well urging knows everything and not only discouraging know everything at everything you know what I mean. So he's always got some personal story about the parking lot attendant or the young lady selling principles in God knows what stadium across America in whatever division series and whatever decades. He's got a story so he's the perfect person to be. They're known for a long time love to McKay. He's a great guy to have around telling old baseball stories about anything at all right so you don't Fred Willard that you knew Fred. Willard is Clinton all right Masonite Fred. He's a huge baseball fan. And he had Fred Willard in once. And you gotTA throw this in the next time. Eat Willard said we may remember this he goes. I have the greatest baseball trivia question of all time yes and this was prior to the Internet. You couldn't just look it up so you can't tell Tim it's coming but here's the question. There's only one player in the history of baseball. Who Died. He was killed as a result of something that happened in a game. Ray Chapman Cleveland Indians. He got hit in the head and died all right. It was in nineteen nineteen one hundred percent loss. The Curtain GonNa know that. Okay no no no. Here's the question. Okay who pinch ran for the dead guy is a great question and I know the answer but Nixon. I'm your win Winston time you're with Kurkin hold on. I can't decide if that's a better question or a funnier joke on. Hillard Willard had the Willard had the answer like written to to to like baseball America and had them look it up and then I looked it up. And it's he I know the answer. Okay but I'll do. I'm all with him on Tuesday and I will. I will absolutely make that part of the show and passed a bit and I will. I will mention you and Fred Willard on there you go. That's great so so here here. We go we're doing. We just talked to Dan. Stray Lee who is in South Korea right now and they're starting to play intra squad games and they're doing temperature checks but not necessarily testing of everybody are reviewing that now as the model by which Major League Baseball can return. I don't think I've talked to a couple of players and I've talked to a couple of former players and I don't think that that's something we're going to see. I just don't see a environment in which we're putting ourselves through that. Because I think honestly I I think the large segment of America that. Just find that unbecoming. They're not going to do something like that to watch. A sporting event in a baseball game might be part of that. And there might be a Lotta culture a lot of community connectivity. WanNa bring back. But I don't see a world in which people are sticking things in their mouth or sticking their hands on things before they go watch a baseball game because I just honestly don't believe that that's worth it for a Lotta people. Personally I would do that. You know what I mean but I think that we're GONNA more likely to see a scenario in which you play without fans and or until some sort of vaccine comes into the picture. You can't ask you do all that weird stuff man people. Just WANNA show up and eat hotdogs and drink beer ball and I don't see pricking your finger anything like that coming into play anytime soon at all right. Well said that they're going to play it without fans but but the the surprise me was. He said they're not altering the game in any other way. Like the empire is standing right behind the catcher. The catcher is right behind home plate. What do you think that's reasonable? You think we're looking at baseball. Would know fans in two thousand twenty or you're more like L Z and Bill plachy who think no sports in two thousand twenty at all. I don't think that it's going to be up to any of the Sports League at all. And I think that's why we're not GonNa see twenty twenty if this comes down to a situation where commissioners and Conference leaders and stuff are the ones making the decisions. We gotta Kinda different problems there and I don't think they're even going to be allowed to have that in their hand. You look at what the governor has done in this state. You look at what the governor has done in other states. It's going to be based on. What the lawmakers in America when it happened. It ain't going to be based on what you me or Joe Blow in the office. Thinks it really isn't and so as much as I would like to believe that we can get to some sort of picture where we think about what that's going to happen. That's what happened in the world of sports so click you know that Anthony Fauci said two days ago that he says there is a way to do this. You heard that right out. She Anthony Ouchi doesn't answer to anybody. Nobody votes for Anthony Couch. I'm not going to get too far in politics. I really absolutely believe the sports league SORT OF RANDOM POSITION NATIONALLY. Where people think that what? I'm GONNA use the word being here boiling the sports world. What we do is going to push something else. I think it's the other way around. And I think that a lot of commissioners and so forth. We're going to have to be real about what that means to what their product is. Never mind how that's going to relate them with But the thing about it. Wow you're you're kinda you kind of wet blanket today. I'm going to get up at three. Am to watch Taiwanese baseball game. You know why because they're doing something that is obviously worked and that's kind of my thing about this. If you gotta look at this and say I want sports games back. I'm going to look at it and say what you have to do to make that happen. And I'm willing to wait longer so that I can see a product that I know. I'm GonNa like that. I answered his get people out there to risk it. A lot of the coaches that are in the PAC twelve and said the same kind of thing. Why would we have games? If we'RE NOT GONNA have kids in class. The fans are just as much a part of this as anything. So why is the reason why is because I want these people? I only to be alive to go to these as Clinton is it. Is it your Certian that we're going to have to play in an environment? That has no risk whatsoever. I think we're going to have to play in environmental where people either sign away their risk or the mid-sized minimize. Yeah and that's fine. You know what I'm saying. I think I probably rather do that. And that's you know that's not me being upset about it. That's me looking at it as we can make it back to full go as opposed to. We're probably never going to be the same. Just deal with the crumbs are GONNA get. Yeah I Clinton. I think you're being too pessimistic but I mean that's okay. Everybody's got an opinion. You got an opinion on this. It is the one thing I would tell. You is though if we use South Korea and we like the Chinese Basketball League is going to start up before we do. We're going to get data from that South Korea's GonNa play baseball. We're going to get data from that. Football is the most interesting kind of quagmire. Because you're tackling and grabbing and sweating on top of each other and and and I think football is is is pro involves more people to put on a football game. That's the one that I think is going to be. The most interesting makes you the question that asks Mason earlier in the show wins the first time any of us are going to set foot in. Suffice Stadium. Bro. I mean they just have to have money all the way out to twenty twenty five hundred. You know I'm joking but I think that's a good question. What are you gonNA have in there? I mean I used I forty event. Yeah well I mean. They canceled the very first event was going to be Taylor swift on July. Yeah can't I think we're more likely to see a non sporting event in so far I and we are a sporting event simply because you can get people like I was able to give away to live. If there's only one or two people on stage that you care about much hotter operation for ten on a football. Yeah I think by the end of the year we're GONNA see greatly limited but still fans inside s-o-f-i stadium to see a game even if it's even if it's a few fans per cent per section. I think we're GonNa see something like that. So let me tell you that they quickly because I know we're up against it. Here's the last thing I do think in a more positive way but first we're going to see sports fans are not his California. I absolutely believe that based on all the things that have happened here based on the force amount of moving I was allowed to do but rather the amount of movement I was forced to do while. We're still moving around. When this first band I started happening places. I think that the measures that the state has made are gonNA put them in a position to do this well before any other state and to do it safely and data. I'm definitely looking forward to a new resident. Walk that all right cool. Hey Clinton thanks a lot for coming on Tuesday nights and Clinton let me know Kirk and gets the WHO pinch ran for the dead guy question. I'm very curious you feed dial and I will hit you exercise.

The boost it deserves start your Scotts turf builder program today. This is a Scots yard similar to the NBA. We have an all star break of our own almost like spring, bravely. Dan, Patrick, he's not here. Something's missing. But filling in the ngelo Russell if you will replacing Dan Patrick come on. We didn't come to the game to see that area. Doug godly and Bill plash game. What have good morning to you? The legend Bill Laskey. I'm just Doug Gottlieb, diangelo Russel, I like that. There's a little de ngelo Russell seven every year. He's a here. All-star kid. Yeah. Let's empty points hanging out guy. Lakers. Actually, don't miss him. We can get into that discussion if you want Br brought to you by on CD AM g driving performance. Well, there's a bunch to get to Bill. I actually think the maybe get to know maybe say, no, well, I like, I'm not Catholic. Capper Nick is being is being jerked. No, no. I want to get to cabinet. We wanna get to Kenny G, and whether or not you thought it was a baller move for forced to Konya to hire. Kenny, gee, why would soom higher Kenny G to come over and play a couple of songs or Kim Kardashian, restaurant camper, Nick, and Kenny G you in the same sentence. Thank you for that. And then of course, you've got the Anthony Davis discussion which his own current head coach called a dumpster fire last night after the pelicans and beating one the game the Oklahoma City thunder. And oh, yeah. By the way, there's this. There's the video of in the in the first half. Anthony, Davis blocks the shot, or this is horrible may have heard his shoulder, and then gets gets an X Ray or MRI. And then leaves the building goes home doesn't come with. But that's not the video was him leaving the building with Richard Paul with Rich Paul escorted out of the building. Just like he escorted them trying to escort him away from the pelicans. It was the optics were not good on that. Rich Paul has done nothing. That makes any sense the last month that would make one think that he knew what he was doing. Okay. You know what? I mean. Let's we'll start there. Let's start there. Because I do think that a lot of the a lot of all of these stories you bring your own inherent bias. And I think it's I think it's only fair to live when you when when people parachute in everyone knows, Dan and the danettes and kind of if you listen to the Dan Patrick show, you kind of know where they stand on different topics because they've been around forever. But I don't think people know is for example, your before the Anthony. Davis for the Colin cabinet before for these stories that we have today in the Colin Kaepernick story is reportedly asked for twenty million dollars there to play in the af here in rebel said. He actually asked for a bunch more that story just he he he just dropped. But we'll get to that. We'll get to that upcoming. Let me start with Anthony Davis. So you go back a couple of weeks ago, actually, go back a month ago month and a half ago. And there started to be kind of leaks about Anthony Davis. Wanting to be a Laker being rep by Rich, Paul and the fact that he wouldn't sign that the two hundred forty million dollars except she extension you go back a couple of weeks ago. And now the sudden there's all kinds of stories out there, your reaction at that moment was what my first reaction was. I thought Rich Paul by coming out and saying that Anthony Davis wasn't gonna play for the pelicans put everybody in a difficult situation by second reaction is an LA times. Sports. Columnist was go get a magic go get them. So I was on both sides of the thing. But I do think that I was stunned. We because we've never seen this before we've never seen an agent and actual somebody on the record not a source not some Twitter bomb, but an actual rely rely persons speaking saying my guy's not gonna play there. You've mazal get rid of them. And I thought that put everybody in a difficult position with lead pelicans. And so that was my bias was Rich Paul was Trump was really trying to power play their boy this. Better work. I think the entire thing was a power play. I think they've tried to power play with Luke. I think they've tried to power play did were GD bus shut that down. That's a it's it's the coup d'etat. And so the like look this is by the way, this is what Phil Jackson said happens with the Bron James. You may not have liked the word posse. But this is what he warned you of why don't like to wear posse. I call him. Why? Because he's guys are brilliant businessmen. They are. That's still stunning how Rich Paul acted so foolishly these these are business. I thought he's as brilliant brilliant businessman. Well, you just said, he's a brilliant man, and he screwed homeless screwed up. He's he overplayed he's he's nine. I think he's tied. Lebron James is a Bill is billionaire. I agree. Look LeBron James is an unbelievable brand. And he has done he has done some amazing things. And how do we the brand got to be where it was because he's a great place or not a pasta. These guys were business associates of his these guys are smart business oceans of his they're just not bigger than the Lakers, which they found out this week. What's that? You're giving him credit for LeBron James like look money makes money and is athletes. We've seen lose lose everything. It'd be worth not look again. I agree with you in that LeBron has handled himself. There's never been an there's never been anything off the basketball floor to derail his nothing. Right. And that is and then he's been with a couple of exceptions on the best before markedly successful that. But like, I don't think it's because of the advice of Rich, Paul. I don't understand the idea. Like, why is he this is a little bit of the Magic Johnson. Right. Magic Johnson gets credit for being a billion businessman like is. He yes, actually, he is. Or is he because he's Magic Johnson. No this if that worked and how come eighty percent NFL players are bankrupt five years after their careers earth over. No that doesn't it doesn't always go hand in hand, you know, as well as I do not here. He's businessmen. Hold on Olen. Is is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar brilliant guy. Absolutely. Okay. Marcy, he lose all his he lose all his money. I think he he does all his money because all back Niang it all back. He lost. There's career does bar at one time lost all his money because he was with a financial advisor. Oh, okay. So then LeBron James doesn't lose his money because with financial people who are smart, and you're not giving them credit. The Rich Paul is on a financial guy. He doesn't. But they're they're all involved in that. No. I. Fan. I'm not big fan. Lebron right now. Okay. And I've been on record saying that. But you've got to give credit to his business associates his business. His brand is unbelievable. I I agree. But but having guys and look part of it is to some people posses a loaded word it is. I mean, it's not. It's just not posse is a group possible. Jackson used it deroga-. He he knew what he was doing. He said it. I know Phil Phil's another smart guy. Right. Well, this is that's all news. But he knew what he's doing. He said, okay. But he's he's not wrong. They they come in. And they hijacked the process. That's what they do. And they they enrich the process. Look, look what he's done I understand. But they hijack who. Well, I mean look at what has written. What happened in Cleveland? Like, look we really want to look at Cleveland. Was it a success because they one? Yes. Yes. Yes. It was a success. But but hold on they they had they had Kyrie Irving not yet in his prime. They went out and traded the number one. One pick because they had tanked to get Kevin love they want an NBA championship. And what happened afterwards? It would happen afterwards was is when always championship. No, no. It doesn't always happen. Not not right away. The Brown James wanted to trade for Chris Paul because he says buddy and the LeBron James wasn't. You know, wasn't happy with how he was coach. He's never happy with how he's coast, and they. Jambi LeBron jeans brilliant business, associate Rich, Paul got got Tristan Thompson and JR Smith his clients overpaid. But that locked up the Cleveland cavalier. They got back to the NBA finals again. Yeah. Of course, it does. Knows your phone LA would take that in a heartbeat. I understand but they're in the eastern in. Don't think boss. You don't think Boston was the boss was inferior team last year when they beat them in that game. Oh, absolutely. I told you they beat him in the Boston Garden. They don't they didn't have Kyrie's Irving or do, you know, the starting? What was the starting lineup for the Boston Celtics in that game? Like, we make it out. Like there was some miracle that Cleveland one they had the brawn and Kevin love and they came to the night. But I'm just saying you can't say LeBron just destroy Cleveland. Yes. He did let how do they how he went a championship there? I did. I'll take you know, he he can destroy LA. All he wants to the championship. Here a championship. What are you talking about? Well, again, why are we playing anything beyond that beyond the ring? It's about the ring. Well, it's it's it is it is a is about the ring. But but at at what cost at what price paradise. That's that's really the question. There n word is paradise Cleveland in paradise us that the same same. That's that's makes it worth. Well, look, my thing has always been. I do think the I think there's a lot. There's there's way. More good than there is bad with LeBron. And with his guys you want to say his crew, that's fine. Recru- is bad. Yes. It is Bill. Just stop it. Stop being that guy that you want to use every word and make it some negative connotation crew group of guys. How you roll your all deep? You have you Jeff Bezos has a crew. Yes. You think Howard show has a crew? Yes. Oh, they have a business associates. I have to have a team, but they have up saying you don't use those words for Jeff Bezos. Yes. Can I never anybody there going to Basil's in his crew rolling in here to the Amazon business boardroom? No, you know, you don't of course, you do if you haven't crew you say his team fails unless I have his team his group of business associates there. Okay. So. There homeys. That's there's no it doesn't have to be. If you wanna take every word and make it into all. Do you become the guy who's who's so far who's who's everything is not offensive? It's just not K. There's no offensiveness to it. Rich, Paul did not have he's he's mishandling this thing. Because he thinks he is more powerful than he really is. That's pretty obvious and he's own up. Only because his best friend is LeBron James. That's it. He's not powerful in on its himself. He's powerful. 'cause you LeBron James would have dumped him if he thought he wouldn't do them any good because the brand James is super loyal because they they are they are that close of friends. That's a good one of the good things about the brunch. Lebron James's smart. I don't know that he could on his own do what he's built without his team. I just don't know the done absolutely could have done. I absolutely. I don't I don't think. Okay. So look the point here on that one. The the point is Bill Plaski Doug Gottlieb in for Dan and the danettes, but rich this was a powerplay. Correct. Correct. And so far it has failed miserably. And so we're left with take a listen to this comment. This is Alvin gentry who by the way, and you can tell me if I'm wrong as respected a guy as there is in the NBA, maybe not the greatest head coach in the world, but respected guy. I love avenue a covenant closer to clippers. I love him. The media loves and the fans love him. Yes. I would say he's among the top ten most respected people of any Elkin MBA. Okay. Absolutely. Let's let's see if he's happy with Rich, Paul tell you the truth, you know. You know, this whole thing has been a dumpster fire. You know, and it's just hard. You know, for guys, you know, we won't to be professional. We want them to do this. But it's hard for guys to go through what they've been through. When he says, we want guys to be professional that leads you to believe he thinks this whole thing has been handled unprofessionally fair. Absolutely. Okay. And then Rich Paul is in the arena. And oh, my God, my shoulder hurts, I gotta have it. Gotta have. I gotta have. I don't believe the injuries. Even I think there's a whole thing was a fake anyway, just to get him off the court. I agree which is again a power play against the NBA power play against New Orleans New Orleans pelicans. So I guess the question becomes you can't trade him. Now, we're past the trade deadline, and I believe this is from the people, I know within the Lakers is I believe that as you said, and, you know, this town better than I do, and, you know, the league better than I do that you mentioned Rich Paul China Power play to get Anthony Davis moved because he came out and said, he ain't gonna play for you. Right. And the pelicans met fire with fire and leaked all these phony trade reports because my guys in the Lakers like dude, we did offer Kyle offering cow Kuzina. Lonzo ball Brandon Ingram zoo, botch, Andhra fix and capital of like, nobody would not offering a Herschel Walker trade, we're not complete and total buffoons. Like, that's Anthony. Davis is a great player. He's not worth our entire roster. The positives within our roster outside of LeBron James. But it was their reaction to his unprofessionalism was them being unprofessional and poisoning the well of the Lakers. And now we're left with the pelicans being a dumpster fire. The Lakers being right now on the outside of the playoffs. Looking in Luke Walton struggling to keep his job where Jeannie has to come out and say, you know, leak as an unnamed source that Luke's gonna stay and we got a mess on her hands. And I'm asking you Bill Plachy, how do you fix it you fix it by LeBron James stepping up and being LeBron James? This is what I've written everyone. We've talked about this earlier this week. I've written the column about this whole thing can be fixed if the Lakers can act like the Lakers. Lebron James can do what he's supposed to do what he came here to do. He gets him in the playoffs. Then everything everything out here is calmed down. Anthony davis. Then the pelicans do not play him. He should not play the rest of the year. The leaves should give him a pass on that. It's so much of a mess. It is a dumpster fire. Get him out of that fire. Sit him down the rest of the year. Then they're probably trained to Boston in the summer. There's no way they're training in the Lakers. Now, there's no way Lakers are gonna ever get Dante Davis. No way bliss second. Anthony Davis is dad said he never ever play for the south six because leading now that was a another Rich Paul, of course. You. Paul comprise the whole thing. Chris Broussard saying LeBron James could play if it was the play offs. Who was it from from ESPN who said LeBron James would his you know, what I knew LeBron James is a love the the impact with his team has had on him. But I'm just sick of the way, he's behaved on the court for the Lakers. And I think Laker fans are to all right. We'll get we'll get to that. Plus news on the con- cabinet funny. Like, really, yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Really news on the Colin Kaepernick front con camper. Nick apparently was offered a chance to play football. And wait to hear what his ask salary. Wise was will we see Colin Kaepernick play football. You won't believe the price tag next. If you're over thirty five you're enzyme levels have already begun to decline.

But he'll say great energy, very tremendous. Yes, he there'll be a free broS there. They'll be me and him getting out on the tennis. He wants to play tennis with me. I'm kind of I'm in on that. He's like the greatest guy. I mean, he's like he does make coffee nervous though, it is. But it is hard to get a baseball player. Baseball players. Just don't seem to have that kind of you know. It it factor that he's got it. Yes. Wish is the best man is good people, by the way. Do you? Are you do you like the fact that the dodgers do not appear interested in signing, Bryce Harper? I do not like that. At all you kidding me. Eight billion dollar TV deal out here for the local TV rights making money hand over fist. They finished short of the World Series. The last two years the fans have invested in this team for thirty one years, and they can't put any money back into it and sign Bryce Harper. Yes. I'm very upset about that age age of. Yes. Absolutely. And he'll show you would be so so you just like, whatever if you give them if the ad and you pay the dodger tax write everybody knows there's a dodger tax. It's a lot like the Laker tax. Yes. Anybody within dodge like, yeah. We have to sign them. They're going to say like, look, it's L A. It's more expensive higher taxes and you can afford it. So the ask is, you know, ten years three hundred fifty million dollars our town. I don't know if you go that high. But I'm no, here's the thing. Yes. It is. Oh, how many people dodgers draw last year? They record attendance right gate it. Why do they need Bryce Harper? Well, if one thing they traded Yaw COP one thing he was he's the one star. They had this is still a snort. No they show up because they win. This is still a star town in the dodgers. They have the money to do it. And they have the money in Bryce Harper put him over the top and be that extra bit of juicy need to get to that win that one more game tumour games need, and he wants to spend money for it. And instead they they settled for Asia Pollock. It's settling. I think settling stop settling is idea of not not going your money. What do you care? Well one. Look, the luxury tax is is punitive. Secondly, like looks you want to eight Bill art, they have it in for people who don't live in L. You don't know this an eight billion dollar TV deal. That's so outrageous local carriers won't carry the game's over half of Los Angeles doesn't see the dodgers on TV. This is the price of fans are paying where eight billion dollars at a team is getting he will not they don't make any dollars in one year. No, they make. How many years is the eight billion dollars over twenty years twenty something you, okay? It doesn't matter. It's still big money. They won't redo the deal. So they're third raking in the money. Let's spend some more on the team they're using. Now, they did they did you have to spend it on pitching on bullpen like look if and the idea is you hired Andrew Friedman to run the team a guy who has done. It has done it, you know, bare bones with. And he's doing that. And he's trying to do that here with this team and working. While working you mainly you must be from town. That's okay to get to the World Series. But not winning no championships. They they have a great regular seasons. But in the World Series, they the last two seasons have been failures winded and failures they went to game seven of the World Series two years ago. And last year they lose to to another team. I don't really much for fans to demand that they do whatever it extra takes to get that last game this last two games. And Bryce Harper is not a guy a rightfielder is not a guy who gets you the last couple of games you win with pitching defense, and yes and timely hitting and like, look, I I don't timely hitting. Yes. Yeah. And I mean, there's not one guy team. That's sat because the analytics they set for twenty home run guys for two first game one and game to the World Series. Yeah. A nice Winston which which I didn't like. But again, they're the ones who have gotten a two straight World Series. So so you're you're battling the billionaires. So I'm Bob back backing the billionaire. Yes, you are don't. Oh, no, no, no, no eighty I'm backing people that are smarter than me that understand their sport based upon their numbers more than I do I trust their man. We know I'd trust. We'll do we do. We know Andrew Freeman would not sign Bryce Harper on his own. We don't know that he's taking orders from STAN cast. He's taken orders from his bosses. He's taking orders from the owners. This is on the dodger owner, Andrew Freedman, by the way, is brilliant. Yes. And he's done a trainer saying, you know, what you're saying. He's brilliant right on the other hand, you have gotten a two World Series a place. They haven't been in how many years since they had been in the World Series along. Thirty thirty since eighty eight right anyway, it was it was twenty nine years before the the thirtieth. So they've been to two straight World Series there in position to get in another one. Right. They've they've improved their out the improved their chemistry there. I would guess they're going to improve their pitching rotation and their bullpen. And you said, he's brilliant. And you're like, yeah, he's brilliant. But they're being cheap. Or maybe I didn't say he's being cheap. I'm saying his bosses are being. And that's because I do you know enter Freeman wouldn't sign Bryce Harper. He's not going to say that. It's not that he wouldn't sign them. It said he wouldn't sign him for three hundred million dollars. Sure, they could get him for for they they could come to a degree with Boers. And they're they're not going there. They're just not going there. And they should when we come to win giants. The giants are going there. The Padres were going there suck that the giant suck. They don't need to put it all their money in one guy. This. It's great to got the World Series. LA is not a second place town. It just isn't. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Out getting to two straight World Series and saying that somehow a failure is no they've failed. They got through. It was a success they failed in the World Series. Just like, in fact, y'all COP who I've had many many fights with and been fighting with him at demanded he betrayed and all that stuff. He'd nonetheless did say this a couple of weeks ago. He said, you know, what it's almost like we just play for an extra month for nothing. It was like it was like nothing, and that's the way fans feel fans have gone home heartbroken here for two straight years. And you're telling me, you can't spend the money to sign a player who could be difference maker. I don't I don't buy. That's because you're saying that's because you're saying Bill Plachy, you know, more about their business than a guy who you just said was was brilliant. No, we just much the patriots. And the the the genius to the patriots. It's not just that. They have Tom Brady, and you have your own Tom Brady and Clayton Kershaw. It is to all my God. They have Tom Brady and Bill Bill, Jack. Correct. But I'll radio. Also, most put also, but also the fact that Tom Brady does not command top dollar. So they can spread all their money around. That's what the that's the brilliance of to see the dodgers at least make more of a of a concerted effort to get a Bryce Harper now. Manny Machado, no way. But Bryce Harper. Yes. Okay. Okay. We'll get back. We'll we'll give you some way to hear the the the latest is Colin Kaepernick story upcoming which which which which we did Bill Plachy Doug Gottlieb in for Dan and the danettes. Let's welcome in Michalis senior NBA writer for the Michael last night in New Orleans, a guy who Alvin gentry who everybody respects. Everybody likes comes out and admits this has been a dumpster fire. He talked about professional guys he asked guys to be professional essentially eluding to what's happened with Anthony Davis and Rich Paul has been unprofessional. What's your reaction to what you saw? And what you heard coming out of New Orleans. Wasn't amazing that three franchises can be wrecked by one trae requests to the few look at what happened with the Lakers since his how they've all faltered look at the pelicans and just how that whole season just crumble, and you look and just recently with Boston and just how they were on a hot streak, and now they stumble, you know, after you know, stuff came out about Tyree. So just one one trade requests can can rock the whole day. But I I just feel like it's a sham. You know? I think that the moment they didn't pull off the trade the nation of just been allowed to just shut down Anthony Davis if he's not fully committed to being a part of the program, then he shouldn't they shouldn't play them. You know, we've seen situations where Jared Smith the shutdown Chandler Parsons been shut down. I've seen it, you know, stars in the same skill of Anthony Davis. But if he doesn't wanna be there, then it doesn't bode well for the whole team. Nobody wants to participate. Nobody wants play hard. And you saw when they got blown out by our Landau. It's just there's a cloud now. And that. Not going to be removed, unless they just, you know, remove this whole situation, and that's really disappointing because Anthony Davis had, you know, probably one more impeccable reputations of anybody in the league before this came about. But he just completing this fire miscalculated one how the Lakers were going to be able to get him into. How pelicans we're gonna play the game. And they clearly playing Michael. Hey, Bill, plastic good talking to you, man. What's? So whose whose fault is this? Well, clearly, if Anthony Davis is fall, you know, I mean, because we we can look at it and say, you know, LeBron Rich Paul and everybody, you know, for sort of, you know, you know, creating this whole thing, but he's the guy that hired him, you know, for this purpose, and I think that that sort of that everyone at -ticipant at the minute happen. I mean once he left that as former agent and went this route. I think you know, the Tennessee went off and was like what's going to happen here? And I think that if anything was going to do this the right way, though minute he knew he was gonna fire at that. He should have just went ahead and. Manage request in because there's no need to be give you a half-hearted commitment to the pelicans this season because he's looking at roster. I don't see how they should have been as bad as it been this year, especially if you have a player of his talent, you know, tr- holiday, Julius Randle. You haven't found at pieces. You didn't have just flop surrounding him. You had some quality players, but they can sense whether you're all in and I think last year when DeMarcus cousins went down you saw at Davis play at this superhuman level. He was carrying them. He's putting a forty twenty rebound games. Like, it was nothing. And I think that you didn't see that kind of effort, and I think that just affected from the beginning of the season sort of felt like he had one foot out the door. I think it kind of falls on him. No matter what I mean, you know, rich positive and what he can try to give them LA. That's what he wants. And he did their best, and they they misfired. But but I think in the end it really comes down to the star. Because he's the one that pulls all the strings and holds all the power are. So Michael you said there's three. Rec teams. We know. The pelicans aren't getting into playoffs. We know Boston is gonna get into playoffs. Do you think the Lakers make the playoffs? And if they don't you think the bronze legacy stained? I think that they make it because LeBron I think that they'll figure it out. You know, I think that you know, he's he's you know, they were good. They were fourth team in the in the west, you know, before he got hurt. And then they they know things going to sell the par while he was out. And I think they'll be able to figure it out if they do miss it. I don't think it's gonna hurt his legacy. I think his legacy is pretty much intact. I think it will hurt his reputation among a Laker fan. And I think that's that's really what matters, you know. Because they they didn't you know, if you're gonna come join the Lakers, you gotta be about elevating that franchise and about taking it to the next level. You can't just go there as a retirement home. You know, just gotta be a place that you elevate. And I think, but I think people will still recognize him as one of the all time greats, but it's probably going to retire. But all time leaves scores. Don't have everything else. Missing. The playoffs is not a crime, especially if you're in your sixteen season. But I think the Laker fans del it'll be much tougher for them to embrace him. If he can't at least the liver on the basics which just get into the playoffs when you come in with so much height. Yeah. I just wonder I think we all operate, Michael Lee. Our guest senior NBA writer for the athlete. Bill. Plachy? Doug Gottlieb in for Dan. I the days the man and the danettes here on the Dan Patrick show on FOX fuck sports radio. I think there's a lot of us operate on the assumption that he's like remember that old thing the Clapper by clap on. After your. House. I'm aware of that. Okay. Okay. It's going to have a couple of glasses of wine. He went on his personal vacation, go also break, and then all the sudden bam. He's back. I I do wonder if he how much of that old gear. He's still has like he's a better shooter than he used to be and his basketball. I q is through the roof. But he does he has an at least this year consistently moved the way he used to move. He doesn't play defense the way he used like a we sure that he still has that in the bag after all this trend is off the tires. Yeah. I mean, it's it's a fair question to ask, you know, think that if you come back, he's sort of been playing, you know, you know, some caution, you know, but you look at his numbers still pretty incredible numbers of, but I guess sort of answering the question again, you know, about his legacy. We don't I don't think anybody really holds Michael Jordan's last year's in Washington against them. You know, he's still regarded as but he like, Michael it. Let's be on he retired. He retired. It was over. Over and he only came out of retirement. That's not where LeBron LeBron is right. Not at all. I guess I was saying that, you know, no one holds against him in that respect. But I I think that again, he also went to the wizards, which is the franchise to had no history to have the legacy that had no, you know, reputation for being, you know, just kind of the gold standard for, you know, for the sport with the Lakers. The Bryant has to step up and deliver you know, 'cause that's not a franchise. I mean when you have five years without the play offs and you come in. It's like the savior you have to deliver. And I think that's that's that's what he has to do. He has to deliver. And I think that he's going to do everything in his power to come through. I think the all star break be good for that group because we have this young. And clearly this fragile you know to do with all the trade. Rumors and speculation that made it very unsuitable for them. But I think maybe the break they come back. Regroup Luke Walton is maybe feels a little more. Secure because they have a fired him. I think they have the talent, you know, to to come through and make it. I mean, it's not like the teams ahead of them are just so great that they don't have a shot. I I just think they just need to kind of get past this period where everybody was on the basically have two teams on the tree block. And now, I think they'll be fine. Michael questions being asked out here in LA. And I want to ask you the pew in. Maybe you can assess you Selena what the NBA landscape thinks about the question, we still want to know why LeBron come here. Why do you think he came here? Think he came here for his business and display basketball? What getting his business built or you think he really came here seeking seeking another champi. Thank you came for all of the above. You know, I think he came for the best place that could maximize, you know, just what he can offer, you know, you know, from a special standpoint, and, you know, LA's a great place. It is a great place to retire. We don't want him to retire. He said it was the icing on the cake, if he did well here that really rankled people. Did it did y'all yet? You sure you agree with that? Yeah. Absolutely. But I think that you know, he he wants to win there. And I think that's one of the reasons why you know, he wasn't sweating, you know, and the star player if they already had it lined up that AB wanted to come, you know, I think that's if you add Anthony Davis, your whole French has that the authors. Of course, you're franchising in allows you to extend your your your your run a championships, you know, chasing championships. I think if they were able to land Anthony Davis look LeBron let differently right now the affect that. They they weren't able to get him. And that that whole situation is now soured Anthony Davis reputation and split the Lakers sort of in a tailspin it all it looks very bad. But I think that he came in there with a game plan. It's it just now it's failed and he has to kind of regroup and take another path. But I think that primarily it was you know, all about the it was about this. It was about. About being a liquor being a Laker elevate him in the base for the being the greatest because he would be part of that legacy playing in the franchise where you have will rain and all these guys kinda of end argument. Yeah, he could add the Laker fan base to his side of the debate. At being that go to your retire there as like all timeline score and everything. So I I think it all comes together. Yes. But it is it is fast. They take a listen. This is Scotty, Pippin Scottie Pippen went all hot take. But I do think it was hot take. But hoping hold on. I'll I'll actually validate. I know a superstar gay who I've had drinks with who in in privacy of our own conversation said the exact same thing wasn't that. I because you're telling us about no, I'm not telling you. It was the exact same thing about LeBron. Take a listen to Scotty Pippin. He's not what my goals as a player. He's not even what Kobe Bryant was as a player. So. When you talk about trying to compare Michael's instinct, his ability to take over gains, his ability to want to have that last shot, the moralize, you get a living hell outta LeBron doesn't have that, gene. So Scotty, not in him look. So that look I don't I do think that he's taken over games. He has taken more thinking. But you've got three ring then he came back from down three one question is ability. No. But, but I do think that there is at the very in the in the real discussions of the great NBA players. They're like, wait. You kidding me? You didn't come to LA to win a championship. You don't step on every every floor thinking, I am like that's the he's wired differently. Like the idea that he would come here for his brand and not with one sole intention, and that's to win an NBA chips, even Wilt Chamberlain who's who's seen as a colossal choker at the very elite level against Bill. Russell ultimately finally won a championship. He wasn't the best player on that team. But it didn't a championship. You mentioned all these other guys like and the idea that he didn't come here. Win a championship to me. This legacy to me. It hurts his legacy. Absolutely. And so many things he did in Cleveland Michael helped his legacy because it was about pursuing that championship. I just think it's a massive misstep to say, I'm not chasing anything. Why are you playing basketball? You only play basketball to win basketball games. That's what they is not fair to compare him to Mike because you know, I always say that, you know, Mike them wanna check it was one in the game in the bronze number of check. This was not always just to win stuff. Look good. What went in and collecting a lot of stats in the process. I think the fair comparison is Wilt Chamberlain. It's always has been Brian because he always has been the biggest advantage sky. He always has put up statistics that blow your mind, but he's not always going to be the one that winds up with the trophy at the end of the day. And I think that's that's more of a fair comparison because I always say if I want to win a game, and I got to pick between Mike and nj. I mean, I'm Jay LeBron. I'm taking Mike because Mike was going to try to cut Schlicher next. You know to try to win the game, right? The bronze objective has always been different. And I think that that didn't necessarily mean that he is a bad thing. Right. They're just different people found, but always thought there will was the fair comparison in that respect. And if you look at look back, and we'll you go on to L A. Actually, they want to go there when the championship, but they had Jerry West there. They had. There. Lebron went to a team that had Brandon Ingram and Lonzo ball like you when he went there. You knew that they weren't ready when it championship. But I think that the fact that he was trying to pursue an Anthony Davis, you know, right away. And I'm sure there's someone to do everything to try to get the star to come there. Eating just go there just to just have fun. He clearly had an objective. But this this thing blew up in his faith now. And I I think that now is that a group, but but he's got a save space. But some thing I'm not chasing, the anything that that's more of a pride thing coming out than anything else to me. Michael a great writer for senior NBA writer for the Atlantic. Michael.

The all new raff Ford LTd, Toyota, let's go places JBL and clarify registered trademarks of Harman international industries, Inc. Doug Gottlieb, Bill flash. With you here on the Dan Patrick show. So yesterday Twitter was nearly broken with all these Valentine's Day messages and Plachy. I know you're a big Kardashian follower of all thing. I have gotten into a fight with Kardashians aware of that. No. Yes. Back when Lamar Odom was with Chloe, I wrote a column saying that she needed to get out of it. You need it to stay out of his business. Keep him off the show. She was emasculating him. It was it was it was I I just I just killed him. I killed her and I killed him. I mean, I I know he nearly killed him. Yeah. Yeah. But it was just I just felt like the Lakers were being affected by this. She was a distraction again, he would be on the show. They're making fun of him on TV when he's supposed to be a, you know, a rebound and one night. Anyway, I wrote this column when he won the sixth man of the year ward shoes at the press conference and she yelled at me and her mom yelled at me. And then though they got in the playoffs and. Lamar ELO called me over one day one after one in Dallas after game. He says he talked to and he said all right simple. Let's go outside. So we went outside the locker room, and I give him a lot of credit 'cause when players are mad, as you know, in your former player you like to yell at writers in front of other players it gives you the tribal gang up mentality. That's you know, they they take power being around their colleagues. So he said, no no school in the hallway the hallway. And he said, listen, he goes, you could write or anything you want about me in on. And you do it for years. And that's okay. Leave my wife out of it. She's still my wife. I love her leave her out of the story. I'll just say this. So so he's like he's like the great the great. He's got a lot of personal demons. Yes, he greatest guy ever comply, everything I've ever heard you've had more interaction with them. But everything is he's a sweetheart of a guy who just incredibly rough upbringing, and he's had a tough go of tough, go of it in his personal and at times professional life, and of course, trying to get back on his feet. And so that that only that only makes it. More clear to me, the type of human being that he is Bill Plaski dugout Rb ashes, bad or bad folks to be around. Okay. So Kanye west. Who again, a dude he he went through a period of making music, which is I think is good a period as as anybody in the hip, hop industry or in the pop music industry. Whatever you wherever you want. Whatever John are you want to put him in? But there are a lot of people that don't like cognac yesterday Kim Kardashian periscope or she just puts it out on her Twitter feed that they have. What's his name play in the cagey? Kenny, gee, k playing in a in a living room with no furniture and all in single roses in vases, and your reaction is what it was. Also you talking to me about Kenny. Gee, are you kidding me? I thought my heart swooned I bought it was great. Okay. So what's your questions? How could you? You're heading your Kenny. Gee, how much does it cost to get you to do that? I think you do it for nothing because their Twitter even want to like it there, Twitter and Instagram and all that stuff there's social media. So through the roof, you're getting yourself more publicity by doing that. It's making you more money in free publicity. I would do it for nothing fifty nine point five million followers for him Kurdish. Yep. I think if I'm if I'm Kenny, gee, I'd do it for nothing. How can you question? What is your? Why was there? No furniture in that room. Do you think they moved all the furniture out of that room or was a room with no furniture? Well, I've I've lived in both houses usually there's no furniture because it's all in the backyard, you know, getting getting aired out or something. So I think I think probably he took all the furniture out. And I think they probably have enough big enough house to handle the rest of the furniture. Okay. Do you did did they did Kenny g get in there? And then they put the flowers in there or does Kenny G have to kind of step over all the roses. Jeep my man. He's he's he's he's nimble nimble. He's very he's very athletic. Yeah. I don't think you do it for less than one hundred grand. I mean, it's I think you do for nothing. And I know you have to you have to because then other people like man, that's a Baltimore. How much Kennedy cost you like I thought he did it for free. 'cause then you become the guy that did it for free guide the different for AB. You say you did it for hundred grand. But you do for us. I think it was worth. It was we're talking about Kenny G on the radio on a national radio show. It's worth it for that alone is performance tonight in Orange County, and my wife just sent me a text, and we're going to see Kenny G tonight. Are you really no we're not going to see cake?

Major League Anticipation

"Patient for dodgers. Padres this who. I hope it will last but now the news today. Fernando is gonna be active. He's ready to play. We thought he was out to the year. What the padres edwin grandma the draft. Let's go a flood grimmer a way for the weekend flu season decision to activate and play fernando touchy junior after last week and it looks like it could be shoulder surgery. It could be a loss season. The decision san diego's prepare to make right. Now is a big one. I mean he's one week into fourteen years and three hundred forty million the reports coming out of san diego. She's talking to taty about learning how to swing differently right now. Don't take one hand off. The bat and learning went to give it in his own went to not give it. This is a conversation. The team is having with their future and current store. Plash y'all bring you in right now. Are the padres making a sound decision. I can't wait for this week at twenty. I can't wait now. The padres with totti's and i think it's what they have to do. They got to find out what what what's going on with them and have to know how much painting play in. Apparently it's not getting worse by play and they got to figure out what what what they've got what he's got. How much pain he can he can do with. He's batting one sixty seven. It's five games so far. This year hasn't done well with that. He hasn't done. What would that and you say that because this has been an injury the subway station the shoulder if he wanted to be specific here and i know what he it's. Dr pain has been bothering for a while. What do you bring you in here on the decision. Making around what you do with. Who's not going to have surgery but clearly is not one hundred percent. We're talking about april bill and you're getting so excited about a series and bringing him back to find out how much pain he can play with. The guy took batting practice yesterday for the first time since he was injured. And you wanna put him in the lineup and he could get hurt again and then he indeed would be season. That makes no sense in the world when you're playing a team nineteen times. You really think this one game is that important. No give it another week. At least we did think he was going to be a way for months. And now we're talking about changing swing putting him back in the lineup trying to find out if he can play with pain. It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Sarah spain it doesn't seem to make sense right. Your gut instinct is to look at these little snippets of things that are coming out and to say what are they doing. But who cares more about whether totti's healthy now and later who cares more about whether fulfills the length of that contract who cares more about whether they're doing the right thing not us talking heads in these boxes as much as we might think that we're always right so my assumption is that they've done all the due diligence to realize it's not going to get any worse that he isn't gonna have surgery now than they are going to see how we can play on it and look i'm never gonna make millions of dollars a year because i'm not the person's gonna say i know better than the manager of the gm. The player the doctor and everybody else who made this decision. I know we like to do that around here. But i have to assume that they're making this with the intelligence behind it to make it feel okay and just intensely. Medical records are private. So i have no clue what for an fernando tatis records. Look right now but it doesn't feel good. We fell on that side wing. It looked violent so this time to bring him back. I'm not sure but the decision to do so. It kinda feels like that younger brother energy like i have to beat my big brother. I have to prove a point right now. They haven't won a season series against the dodgers since twenty ten. So i'm really. I'm really apprehensive. This game one and what could be a five year series like you don't need to get it all on the first drive but i'm i'm bob year fourteen year. That's the deal. They just signed with totti's but i hear what you're saying sarah who would know better and bill you getting this. Who were no better than the franchise who would want to make the right decision that sometimes he got total vision sometime just so focused dodgers padres. We've been looking forward to it for months now after the war that they've had right bill plachy and talk to me about the dodgers rearranging their rotation to get euler cursed off and power for the first matchup. This weekend roberts quote you're going to read into it. Anyway you want and quotes and joe matz grove of the padres quote. I think this is going to be towed center for how these series going to the rest of the season close bill. What's at stake this weekend. We'll justin turner said this is one thousand nine hundred world series games. The dodgers are sick and tired of the padres. Chirp chirp chirp chirp even though they're ninety seven and forty nine against them. The dodgers are in the last eight years. The dodgers basan trevor bar as a response to the padres getting so much better winter. So the padres. Meanwhile so sick and tired of the dodgers being the big brother being the arrogance being the division championships. I think this is really a turf war. And it's gotta start here and it it literally four. It's about homefield advantage already. Every game matters in the postseason dodger. Stadium's of big home field advantage. The wants a fans get back. Dodgers are fighting for that potter's fighting for that. And i'm are for one. I agree with the dodgers. I'm sick of the padres win. Some and then popoff says. The dodgers got one championship and now they can tell people right just in one hundred sixty two game season how much this one game series better in the grand scheme not a lot but i love the drama and we're talking about. We're talking about baseball in april in rivalries. This is great. I love the trash. Talk from the padres. I love the chess moves from the dodgers. This obviously means something to the dodgers as well. When you're on the top of the hill you you recognize when people throwing rocks at the throne so this has all the makings to be the marquee robbery in baseball and one of the best sports period. And if i'm baseball. I'm pushing all the chips to the middle of the table. And this this this this is special ed page. You really want in on this netflix. Go ahead yeah. I'm just so excited. The padres are going to draw bill to come down to san diego on the pacific coast highway and see a game. I think that's really series. But i'm so i am thrilled to watch this game. And even though i said it's a series in april. I'm so tired of of even this network. And everybody else talking about the red sox and the yankees. We've been hearing that for fifteen years that they are actually other robberies besides that and the clubs and the cardinals. And i think this robbery's great. I like the padres chirping. Bill i think it makes sense that they got confidence enough that they can finally have the players to play against the dodgers and make the dodgers something of than just a runaway choice in their close enough to stay close enough if they can win this series. They're going to be basically tied basically except for the championship. The dodgers have last year in the padres. Haven't had a rivalry and bill is even hesitated. You're calling it that so you gave him more credit than bills giving it sarahspain. How about you. It's not a rival. Well i mean it's very rich that bill. It's over from the perspective of the team that got beat watching that team in the world series very very rich that bill who said this will be the greatest team in the history of baseball already getting his and a bunch in april about a team that had some good offseason moves and now wants to try to contend. I think you should be a little chest to your about your club and have enough confidence outlet. The padres gets you so early. bill. Now this is april there will be many meetings but i do think this means way more to the padres so that the narrative. Oh no. I said that they can compete. We'll actually stick around for the entirety of the season. If they get blown out here than that rivalry is gonna ready and that's no fun. Bill pledged please back at feed win more than five games. Sarah and then and then you can say something okay. And then the and the dodgers season rav four this season before the season. The dodgers are going to have the best team in baseball history. I stand by that. And this is just another roadblock. I'm glad you standby no one and a half weeks ago. Bill de display out all season. Long i'm here for we'll move on this. Let's talk last night strapped maceio. O'ryan grandmother the winner. All right you as you all do as well. I say that respectfully to all who were drafted and all who put down last night. He's virtual dress with no red carpet. You might feel bad. But but the way everyone's attacking the virtual red carpet has been incredible and they show person look look at airy mcdonald hero with the pronunciation. The back charlie collier number one dallas drafted half the league last night. Every mock draft went up in smoke after two picks. So what is the story of the draft sarahspain while you already highlighted some of the most fun moments there which were great but as far as go you mentioned the wings. We knew where they're going with the top two but they got dana that thirteen which is ace steel. You look at the sky. They take sheila named shiloh from australia. To finally give courtney vandersloot some backup epa when there were a lot of movies. They're beyond the first couple of picks which threw people off. Is the idea that people believe that there are only about nine or ten open spots in the league right there. Any person drafted after about nine or ten in the league doesn't necessarily have a good shot at even making a team. Which makes the best push we've ever seen for expansion in the league. And i think it's really likely that that could happen as early as next season. Justin these story of the draft for you may not be the big story but i really like with the minnesota lynx. They went with Davis says she's a really good defender at a tennessee. She had thirty nine double doubles while in college. You pay her with christy crystal dangerfield. Excuse me who the rain rookie of the year. So they have something very special in minnesota. I like that. But also i a shot out. Charlie collier's draft night. Look it was designed by sergio. Hudson who designs a lot of michelle obama's gear and if you're in any conversation with michelle obama and fashion when page the story of the draft. It's got to be the best performance by wings since paul mccartney formed his own band. Name that. I think that i'm sure away you miss you. Miss it evans. Let me give you done g to. They got to outstanding guards that are shooters and then got two big men. Sorry too big women. The i usually help that we need. This was last year but they turned it around with the top. Two draft picks that they were able to choir and add two more players. They've got four guys. Generally the can elephant in the lineup next year and help them get into the playoffs and allow for learning experience for all woody page you say flash value. Sarah the wnba right. What do you do know that that's what it is. Okay make sure you understand that. No the the. La sparks won the night. Clearly the la sparks. They need to replace chelsea gray. And the did that. Jasmine walker stephanie. Walk watts a real orontes who felt incredibly liz draft as well got three first round picks in the first round the sparks on their way back to owning the city. Only mealy sarah less wordplay still hot from lepers also four to one day bill flash plastics says any team that is la one. You lost candace parker to the chicago sky. And you're like yeah. There's big winners. This is going to be great man who for really we had a flavor sway page picking up the pieces of your arguments here. At least patience is something you have.

That's geiko dot com. Welcome back around the horn. Coming to you. From the heineken river decades here seventeen fire sell and we start with a question about ronaldo kunia junior becoming the best player in baseball before our eyes which sounds ridiculous because he was one or two takes below the best player in baseball before our eyes last couple years but the last week last week has been taking out routine grounders tagging pop ups. The second bob's pitches that would have hit him. He's leading the majors. Its home runs. His opie s is fourteen. Ninety two woody asked this honestly knowing mike opie s well seventy one right now but is the best player in baseball. Yes when you look at what is surrounding him. He's big paired numbers of lou brock. Barry bonds and hank aaron of course a kuna matata. This is After what we learned last know your heart is here but please stick to sarah. Spain might truck compared to hank aaron before mickey mantle willie mays with comparisons are comparisons. How good is the kunia right now. Jamming coming into this season expectations where he's an mvp contender. He needs to cut down the strikeouts. He has the flaw in his game. That people pointed to and he's doing everything else well and he's doing it in highlight fashion. Which makes us pay attention even early in the baseball season. I don't think it's sustainable at this level. So i'm not going to pass them on like a trout yet but right now in. This moment is absolutely best player. He's planning to work any keeping atlanta float. The braves are five. And that's with the best hitter in the world right now. I have had put emphasis on right now. And he's also lead he's he's also the all time leader aka home runs which how big it is kinda cool that we get video clash gave you wo- will like you said mike. Trout is still hitting twelve. Seventy s my crowd is still mic. Drop plate in the east coast. We wouldn't even be having this discussion. However his fifty fifty two total bases as a leadoff hitter through thirteen games in baseball in one hundred and twenty one out. Yeah so he's off to the best start for anybody in baseball. But let's just let's mike trout still bill typically. You might walk into nude if you're playing off the west coast east coast bias but a lot of braves games happened on tv this week. And that's why it's right in front of our pace with the kunia. We'll move on her cell to the list of thirty seven to choose from that washington. Football team sent to its fans. They're saying this is not a bolt but an opportunity to capture insights and perspectives. In this next phase of the rebrand dirty next phase of the rebrand journey. Thirty seven names is possible. The football team is over thinking this service for one. No one's ever accused. Dan snyder of overthinking anything. So this is the first but this is typical washington man. Thirty seven names. Thirty seven eight. I'd say just call them the red cells and get it over with but i know they're going fumble this somehow what other names is the rubies. The washington rubies. Are you kidding me. Some of these horrendous there. Yeah i hate to put in their hand call them. The washington football team worked. It felt good. It felt right. it felt solid. Just keep the name. You're putting it in the teams hands but the team is is actively seeking from fans one of the names that came about you. It's so simple phoenix suns. When they were born at a contest you think out ten thousand people sit in names and they were all sudden. How difficult is it to think this out. Not over get and they are sarah speed. Submissions will get you boaty mcboatface. We don't want that but we also need thirty seven of these nothing to do with politics. Thirty two f. c. Sounds like bras. You can't put vendors defense ducks. Everyone's gonna say anything that can be connected to read because then people will try to bring the stuff back. Just pick something better to has to be one of these one of the hogs because at least you can have a cool pig logs. Okay that that gets back to their their best run in the eighties. Got red tails. Plachy pages yelled out real quick. Wf all right. Well what do you page. You wouldn't have our big guys but not today. No no no no good. No not today. Bills slaski sarahspain to wait for this ball. Going through your loved through your glove. This is an era but did trae. Main seaney deserve era bill de sarahspain. Welcome to showdown. Bill i you. He s he absolutely deserved. An era of the glove is part of his hand. It's part of his possession. He needs to take care of his glove. It's actually fielder's choice. It was his choice for lousy glove. That's called her play in the first place so yes. unfortunately you can't actually market as if f c. It's gotta be a hit or an error and in the case of this wasn't a hit. It was an error. You gotta know that about your glove. I'm sure that coaches have told a million times to make sure your equipment is right. So it's on bill. Sarah took you out in about three different arguments today and you didn't get much fire and the belly as you did the fielder's choice. We'll give you the point move. On iran hosting is own break-up video tribute of the jaylo a-rod era as it comes to a close kanye post your own brick of video. Is that allowed. Sarah's vein you can but you shouldn't we all feel so bad for him and makes us all think of our own heartbreaks. He needed to finish a photo of himself alone framed. Like give us a smile at the end a ride. It was too dark for me. You come to the right place. For break-up videos tony yes i would have posted. That maybe have posted something like that. My heart breaks for how many people have gone through this. Everybody can understand that everybody can relate to this and he's heart broke down track of coldplay. We weren't allowed to play because they would come after us. Our show i would do. I'd have a brain video. That's why you have somebody bring this bill plaski. I'm not saying this. Because i feel bad for you but thirty seconds of bathroom. You wanna give cheers wayne way. The announced the buying part of the ownership stake in the utah jazz. This is a tremendous trend in diversity and ownership in the nba shack. Owns part of the the king's granules part of the atlanta hawks. Of course michael. Jordan runs the the The charlotte team. So it's really important as the wayne wade said to make real change you got to do it from the top and this is how changes made in sports and we talked about diversity. In all areas of sports it starts with the ownership in so gratefully players to use their funds and use their resources to make a better world. You're doing so i'm curious. Especially in utah incidences in the pass with the fans so great to have him after the john man right go plastic. Today's win one more thing. I wanted to draw attention through. Justin had very difficult decision for me. This week is barber Not open this week. Do you get a haircut from a different barber during a pandemic right before you go on television absolutely not.

Why There Is A Change Coming To Your Local Weather Forecast

"There is a change coming to your local weather forecast next month. The data that it's based on will be updated that will make the warmer climate literally. The new normal here's npr's jennifer. Ludden weather forecasters work off a thirty year average and it gets updated every decade right now. What's normal for temperature and precipitation is based on nineteen eighty one to two thousand ten. That's why we've all gotten used to this. Well temperatures for your friday. We'll be running about ten degrees than normal seven degrees above average yesterday. Look into tomorrow above. Normal temperatures will the past decade. Was one of the hottest on record mike. Pilecki of the national oceanic and atmospheric administration says that will show up in the new averages called climate normals. They'll drop the eighties and wrap in the twenty tens. It was a very substantial upward trend in temperatures especially along the west coast of south and along the east coast. He says there were exceptions. Oh you can go to fargo north dakota. That would be a place where it's actually cooled a little bit if that's your interest especially in the springtime but the fastest warming places. We'll see a real bump up in their averages. Amber sellin is chief. Meteorologist at abc fifteen phoenix. Where she says last summer was incredibly hot. We set a record of fifty three days at one hundred. Ten degrees or hotter. The previous record was thirty three days so it wasn't even close what's more she says. In the entire past decade phoenix did not said a single record for low temperature now oddly after the update in may some really hot days or nights could become officially cooler than the new normal plans to take more time to explain all this. We're going to have to remind people especially this year. Hey if we're at one fifteen. That is five degrees above the average but remember this average has changed. This average is not what it used to be. That's important says bernadette. Woods plachy chief meteorologist with the nonprofit climate central. She says research shows people are really good simply resetting what feels normal and she sees danger in that were not aware of how much warming is happening on a regular basis. It's that slow grind. That's eating away at the changing normal. That doesn't give you the opportunity sometimes to sit back and look at what it used to be. Marshall shepherd heads atmospheric sciences at the university of georgia. He wonders if even using the term normal might be confusing and he agrees that for most the new weather. Averages will not impress when degree warming doesn't sound like a lot to most people. In fact many people say oh great. I can have cookouts in december more often but that steady warming has a big impact which he says meteorologist can help people understand. It helps fuel increasingly extreme weather. Wildfires floods hurricanes shepherd says other impacts are more subtle things like rising food prices declining water supply. the spread of vector borne. Disease is about things happening right. Now that are affecting their kitchen table issues their pocketbook their livelihoods and their health industries feel the impact to and for them. The official thirty year weather average is losing its relevance now is my policy says businesses want more recent data that reflects the risks. They face now. Energy companies to predict extreme heat and cold or take construction. They like to know. How many days does it rain during a certain period of time so they have a certain number of rain days that they build into their plans so for the first time this year. No noah will also put out fifteen year averages to help keep pace with a climate normal that just keeps changing jennifer ludden. Npr news washington.

History In The Making

"Sarah spain is quick tears. New lions coach vic campbell says he wants a pet lion at lines practices. What could go wrong. And the play extravaganza teams not die. It's mostly let's go to catch a quick headquarters arts tomorrow night on. Most newer mostly died. Play tonight wizards. After the start they had one of the hottest teams in the league and the celtics after the start they had one the cold. This and biggest disappointment to the league and hornets and pacers. After seasons of and then dark. Wizard celtics israel gutierrez. Who should be favored. And what's at stake specifically for the celtics after the let down this season was i think it's just looking from the outside and most people would say just given the way. The end of their seasons went. The wizards should be favored here. I'm not so sure here. I think one of the issues with the celtics is while they have been inconsistent. They still have had some high moments. And that includes jason tatum as well. Even the sixty point game that he had it was required because it was a big comeback against the spurs there. So i think they can have their moments and against a team like the wizards who does not do not exactly play great defense. They the celtics have that ability. Jason tatum could go off or it could be sort of a whole team effort there but i do think that the celtics have their chance to get bodies back. Marcus smart's calf. Might not be one hundred percents so he might not play as well as he can so that could be disconcerting for the celtics. What's at stake for them. Well obviously if they win they get to play kyrie irving and a playoff series. Which would be quite interesting. They'll probably lose it. But they'll be some definite storylines and some back and forth there but just a little bit of stability a little bit of an ex hail for them because their season has been so up and down. People are looking at firing danny age. Maybe looking at brad. Stevens here maybe looking at roster overhaul. I think all of that would be quieted. A little bit if they settled into an actual playoff justin tinsley. Of course understand why. Boston is favored there at home but is truly think. The wizards are favored here. Boston's five and ten since april nineteen sixty eight without jalen brown. Everson's jaylen brown went down. That team look completely deflated and washington's playing. They're playing great basketball. They're playing really good basketball right. I won't say great. They're four and four in their last Eight eight road games. They've won two on the road. I think westbrook and bill would just be too much. I know bills. Hamstring is bothering him. I don't expect him to go. Eight for twenty seven again like he did in the season on the season finale but know also entertainment factor for me too. I want the which is to win there. So we can get russia versus katie eastern conference version. Even if it will be a quick look you to space right now. He's like the plane starts tomorrow. And i understand what you're saying there tonight. We got a game between two teams and half the teams are one hundred percent and then gave between awarded pacers. I don't wanna be here. Is the plane working for you. Plachy starting tomorrow night steph against lebron. That's all that's all just calisthenics before that but just a statue read their man my goodness. I'm i raise the white flag on that. I think the the wizards have to be favored in this series. But i think you're right. I think when jalen brown went down the celtics checked out. I think they've lost focus lost direction. I think bill and bills complain about his hamstring. Score twenty points in the second half of his last game. He'll be fine. The wizards will be fine. The celtics they're going to lose their the probably still getting the playoffs. I think stevens loses his job. It's been eight years now. I mean eight years. The team is going nowhere. I don't think that was the fire. Take i was expecting gutierrez intensity to make sarah start. There are no. It's not do or die for the celtics but doerr mostly dead and after the letdown of the season. What position is brad. Stevens end injured right now. And mostly shut to miracle max. Your friend isn't dead. He's mostly bed at least two blade quite so far as to say anyone is a runaway favourite here. Nobody's mentioned that kemba had three thirty point games in the month of may he's coming on at the right time for them to need another guy but bradley. Beal has the highest and don't mute me on. This is just a fact tony bradley. Beal has the highest average against the celtics over the course of a season of anyone since michael jordan forty one points a game against this team so while he may be a little bit hobbled. They have not found a way to shut him down. I'm gonna put my money on a hot headed. Russ who finally learned how to pat myself on the back and say that he's got it and bradley beal who's been unstoppable against the celtics. They just the celtics have not been consistent enough to put my money on them in a one off game like this right so the celtics then in your opinion losing tonight's game but but once again just to focus on what this team has become what is at stake. Sarah i could see absolutely both agent stevens going. I think it's not that you want anyone to throw anyone under the bus. But we've heard so much equivocating from everyone with this team that if there's fingers pointed around everywhere and you can't just unload an entire roster than who's gonna get the blame it's going to be both the guy who hasn't taken advantage of picks and assets and the coach who hasn't been able to find any sort of way to bring the talent that they do have together. I wouldn't be surprised if both guys are gone of despair. Some might say for boss. Israel something you wanted to add. Yeah here's here's where. I can't fire brad stevens this year right because coming onto last year with the bubble and covert and everything else and then this year the back to back seasons that they've had with a little bit of breast miami. Boston the lakers also experienced very similar situations this season. So if you weren't getting ready to pull trigger on brad stevens a year ago or two years ago. You probably shouldn't do it this year. Danielle does a different story. His player personnel choices. You can't really blame too much on. You wanted to add something. Yeah i mean. Let's face it either. These teams have any chance at all. Once you get into the playoffs in the i rails asking questions what are the answers tinsley. No of no show all right and would you say the same for the pace hornets. Because then i would ask you. Just what are we doing here with the plate if both of these teams and all four of these teams have no chance. Look this is just a means to an end. They're going to destroy it. In the first round pacers pacers hornets feels like resistible force in very movable still go with still go with the hornets. There's there's no time to look ahead. You just have to praise the play. That's all we want is games that matter right now. No time to look ahead well but this is matter if you just told me none of them ever going forward sarah you wanna you wanna tease us with pacers knowledge. Go ahead what. We've all been asking for deeper runs for the lower teams in the east where that conference. Just just flush all the way down to the bottom. I think the play and can't be decided on whether we're excited about those matchups. We know we're excited about lakers warriors. In any given year we could get some really great matchups. We've seen it work overall so we can dog these teams as much as we want but and we should focus. That'll be the last word unless you wanna make a pick tonight for indian charlotte. Yeah i'm going. I'm going pays. That sounded like a lot of conviction. And how about you plaschke's you. I'm going with the bonus and this'll be the least watch game of the season entire nba season because both these teams are so injured. Nobody knows who they are. Nobody cares. it's over difficult. Could it be more watched on playoff game. We'll move on another overtime last night. I stanley even though it was only thirty seconds. It's still cats. i checked it was formed. The first five playoff games went over time just lunacy. Boston scored on the ancient wall. Craig anderson late in the third got a greasy goal. Taylor hall said to tie it. And then brad marchand Marsha ending in overtime bruins. Cavs one one of the series. Sarah who's got the advantage. Who showing you more. They have been super tight so far. But i'm giving the edge based on goal tending to what we've seen garage has been beaten mostly on deflections on the other side. You've got a thirty nine year old about to be forty craig anderson. And we've certainly seen some backup. Goalies in the past excel in the stanley cup playoffs. That's one of the best storylines we can follow as one unexpected guy stands on his head all play offs. But i'd rather go with the guy that got you. They're all your than your taxi. Squad third stringer. So i don't know if we can expect as much from him as we did coming into action in heroic effort in game one and then getting beat fairly in game to go plachy in regulation time. The bruins won an incredible sixty three percent of the face offs. The really getting into the capitals. I think the the outshot and forty seven to thirty nine there mucking love in front of the net. The capitals have difficulties with goaltending. On what they're gonna do with all that who's going to be behind. In in the next i go the bruins just tinsley first of all shannon. Nhl they started the postseason off with five straight one goal Game so hopefully the nba taken notice on that. But this is a very close series. But i got boston by proxy. They're going back home for two and all season long before the trade deadline marcham bergeron passionate day kind of for forty eight percent of their goals and that was a that was gloom glaring issue all season for the bruins an game one they combined for one that says and game two. They went crazy so if they wanna keep this momentum that those three players have to continue playing at the level that they're playing gutierrez from washington. I'm not feeling that bad. Obviously i'm feeling bad that i let that one get away but you won the first game and then you had to boston. Had to come back to beat you in this in this last game. You mentioned the greasy goal from hull there. That tied it up. And you really can't say much about a minute in the first goal in the first minute of overtime hockey it's wide open. So what have you. So if i'm washington. I'm looking at this. And even anderson. He had a stretch of thirty eight straight. Jj game and again just met hall one sort of snuck by him. So i don't really have. I don't think that this is a huge momentum. Change for boston. I think washington sheffield pretty. Good giving a shadow for all these. Ot games show for the fact that one of the divisions is still finishing the regular season while the plano and bill class. last word. keilor. The taylor hall has drawn three penalties in into bruin. It's still says he's got more and more to give. That was greasy gordon. Easy the ingredients. We've been taking a break guys. See this is this is near and dear to my heart. So i got thrown out there. Did you see new york mayor. Bill the blasios in the. How do you do fellow kids collection today. Oh god about the playoffs.

Former immediately of roy smalley did not like that bill by herself. I totally by this. This is wonderful theatre. It's great drama and it's it's. It's incredible that it's almost if one team stops trying to stop trying to. I love it when position players pitch because they can strike them out or give them home run either way. It's still baseball on rules. Right me crazy. They're yeah they drive me crazy to this. Looks like it's out of chicago sixteen inch softball game. I like that. There's something weird about the end of these blowout games that we should all enjoy is not like people are giving their money back. Broadcasters not getting paid for fewer innings fans aren't leaving early. This is a game this is entertainment. Keep playing until the game is over and suck it up if you're on the losing side. Why isn't it considered an insult that a team is throwing out a pitcher who's throwing forty some miles per hour to a professional baseball hitter. Okay of course. He should swing that. Think he's got all the time in the world to think about it as well. It's just infuriating when only one side gets the play along these little. Unwritten these announcers and people that ilk that turn their nose up this thing. Make my skin crawl. There's too much dip on a chip. I hate unwritten rules. It is probably the most frowned upon topic in sports. This is professional player. Looking at forty seven mile an hour pitch. i would have been more. Except if he didn't swing albert pujols holes dodgers debut. Rbi machine started played. I clean up. It's a single up bumgarner pool. Says he'll do whatever. The dodgers needed to do. Bills or any way. They get production pool. I don't know that's uncertain right now. It's really up to prove holes in his attitude. He left the angels because he didn't want pinch it off the bench. He told him that yet. He said yesterday now he will his last pinch. It was two thousand nine. He's not really equipped to have that mentally. I'm not so sure sarah. We've seen a lot of this. This is why we often say the the greater the last to know it when they don't quite have anymore but for the most part most of them said i wanna come off the bench and wanna be a star they get humbled by being cut or traded and then they come around. I think the attitude is going to be fine. I don't think having good attitude changes as production though. That's wonderful adding that based on the last couple of years. I don't know what's going to give you confidence. It's going to say you. Can you know get out of that and play significantly better for the dodgers but what you're looking for hoses a slight improvement from what he did. You're looking for a moment or two and maybe the new environment maybe. The new person relative personnel around can help them and the dodgers need wholesome pinching situations. He's a to sixty seven pinch hitter. But as bill alluded to he hadn't had a pinch hit since the first obama administration. So i have no clue how that's going to go from being productive is always about what you can do in the field with the bat in your hand. It's about once team healthy. Can you be a positive mentor off the bitch or in the dugout. So that'll be interesting to see. Plays out meyer sell three. He's doing okay. He's okay caterpillar tweeted. He's doing fine three hours after taking the ninety mph fastball to the face multiple nasal fractures meeting with a specialist in atlanta. How many of these we've seen this year. Just hit by pitches because for the fourth straight year. Most hit by pitches per game in baseball history. Justin tinsley tom. Verduci sports illustrated called an epidemic. What's you call it looking baseball. Do about it. Tom had to correct me. And my stomach stomach turns every time i see a highlight like that. This is all the product of relievers being coach. Did value velocity and speed over control. And tony pete this man there. In the first six weeks of the season there have been five hundred ninety. Five total pitchers used throughout this season and the entire two thousand and once he's five hundred ninety one. Total where you like. That's where we are right now. Wow that right. Israel gutierrez just add onto that. The armor has been a discussion right the body armor that the batteries wear has been a discussion over the years particularly the elbow guards. You got guys leaning in so hard. They're not fearful of the pitch that's coming whatsoever and there's times where i've seen guys seemingly in the strike zone by a pitch which i think that's maybe rule you want want to look like if you're in the strikes on leaning over that heavily. You should not talking about that opening day. Marlins mets could foretell won. The game for the mets sarahspain. How about you. Justin stat is so important because specialty relievers have the highest percentage of hit by pitch. When you have that. Many pitchers coming up working their their their wares across the league. This what happens. Wild pitches are up. Walk rates are up and hit by pitches. it's all relating to control. Verduci has a number of reasons that he thinks this is happening. Combining them all together. I think is true. That's what's leading to it. We don't really have a fix though. And i think a lot of people who want extreme cases. I just don't see baseball. You don't see fix plaskitt. Ucf pictures anyway. I see an absolute fix. You know how to get these young pitchers to start caring about location. If you hit a guy he goes to second base automatically from home to second base not first base second base. Put that in your spin rate and smoke it. The idea is fine. I just don't know where. Bill rates Oh okay gutierrez. Shutout is playing in town and tom to lock in the final playoff spots gives teams. Something complaints defend your position easter's acres of each other and upset the or anything can happen in a given night and begin your run. Only the strong survive make history circadian football match. It's not done yet. The state farm play in turn spurs grizzlies at seven thirty. Eastern warriors lakers at ten tomorrow on. Espn wnba is on. Its way back playing basketball in a pandemic looks like this. No six feet apart took. Put yourself in harm's way decision. We are dedicating this season. To ron taylor the unity that we were able to experience with something that we won't forget and we can lean on as we move forward. I do it all over again because bigger than me to figure my teammates. Espn films presents. One forty four presented by honda now streaming on espn plus bossy williams. Your favorite head coaches favourite coach winner of the nba coach of the year from his peers. Out beat out nash. Weed out nate mcmillan and the other twenty six. I guess right collioure israel. I don't think there was a wrong call. Here is probably between him and tom. V nato obviously with monty williams did with phoenix better record in the probably slightly tougher conference. I'm totally fine. Giving it to him. Overthrow yeah absolutely this. This team mitch. Taken tremendous drive since he got there when they nineteen sixty three and now now now. They've won fifty plus games and plus money williams one of the greatest guys in the league. No nobody should be mad at this. This should be award for greatest guy the league. That's a good point. Just one of five teams history to go plus fifteen and then plus fifteen at least back to back years point tinsley. We'll move on dan. Campbell says he wants a pet line on jane manicured trained to take a dump and then be in attendance at detroit. Lions practice city will also would be willing to lose it armed with a super bowl. Jt is this fun or is this making the lines joke. If i'm aligns fan. I'm ticked off. They haven't been to the playoffs as twenty sixteen. They haven't won a playoff games. Barry sanders was one of the young stars in the league. Stop with the antics. And just give me wings. I mean you can have fun. But the actual phrase pet lie is something that i don't think you should share with america. And he also said that he wanted to lion the lion to use the restroom in the center of the field and that way the players have to get tougher as a result that i don't understand but you also don't need a lion for that you're going with that israel but i am s- putting the point and then i'm giving you an extra point for the pet line part. We don't need to be doing that anymore. We'll move columbus. Sc you guys. Had a good run was a wonderful week. For the wonderful part there was such outrage in columbus. they're going back to the columbus crew name. Is this a win. Because the people have chosen or l. overall israel. Well it doesn't need a lion you can just human coupon field but Yes i love. The columbus crew name. I actually tried to convince my flag football team named one year to name ourselves do crew. I love everything about it. The black and yellow early on the color of the construction work. i'm workers. I'm glad they got his name back through i. They tried to move the team in the fan base revolted. Then they tried to change the team name. The fan base revolted. How does the crew not consult the crew mad and matters that mattered just winning and also. We did not need that clarification. Gabe tinsley thirty seconds of past weekend. We saw the greatest fame class of all time going with kobe. Bryant tim duncan catches and kevin garnett and more but also never bought to you that the superfan from the toronto raptors also went into the hall of fame. Now he's been to every rapid game since the since they came into the league but have a hard time wondering how did he beat spiteful. Ian jack nicholson great. That let's celebrate.

Whole New Game

"They had utah the mvp from an elimination game. Can you wrote back ardent. Now that irving doused. Can you make the foot that stopped. Lookie joked embiid literally. The other foot flashy collishaw lee and dunkin today. Let's go fan. you believe donald jog. Oh you know what we're going to take a look at that new about the points for that is the latest on kyrie irving rushes leaving the arena last night and a walking boot. I can't watch ankle injury. Tell me when it's over. Hate them whether the buffs are now in control after one. Oh seven ninety. Six and evening the series to whether it's iran can give any more. He played basically every second through fourth quarter. That has zero in the fourth quarter and sat outlay whether there's pressure to play james harden sooner than they may have like and whether glenn davis can honestly make this about the. That's i'm lucky when the foot game to start with you said you mentioned it. Let's take a look at. Oh it's brighter than thousand sons burs here. Let's go you saying that we all over you is. you know. i'll give you poise. Whoever shirt phoenix son has a great sense of humor is leading the tour de france. That's the line you had it in your backpack. You thank you bill. Where on this series now. We are obvious. The nets don't have irvine if the nets don't have hardened the nets are it's over if they don't come out of everybody's got it over everybody's gonna say well they were four and one with kevin durant this year. That's a small sample size and we played five games with iran as their only only weapon. He was nine for twenty-five mystery. The bucks can swarm now. The nets have a clue. You count on joe. Harrison blake griffin to win. You a playoff series. I don't think so. I think as as as tough as the bucks play as choke as much as choke down the down the stretch. They've got this game. The other outmanned the nets they have more players in the nets. Now they have a more of a better strategy to combat it with durant is the only weapon there. Everybody wants back in one. Splashy says something is operatives collar. Showed you the overstated things as usual. He's on the right track brooklyn brooklyn great. This is a hypothesis right now. We really don't know what they are like with those three guys together because they never play together. But if you're in milwaukee and you lost game up there by thirty nine unless you have found a way to stop kevin durant. Les you can assure yourself. Joe harris one of the most reliable shooters in the league is going to go for. Nineteen as again continued that as he did the two games in milwaukee the series is even that is all and even with the injuries i think durant and the rest of that casts can compete with milwaukee and probably win game five at home. Okay there we go june lee. Are you with plachy or cowlishaw. Stats prove plaski. Wrong if you look at how. The nets played with kevin durant kyrie and harding together on the floor plus thirteen and with just kevin durant. They're also plus thirteen. And also if you also look at the fact that it was another level by the fact that. Pj tucker is wearing. Kevin durant shoes. I think kevin durant is going to be able to carry this team at a lot of. And i just don't believe yet that the bucks are gonna be able to carry on through the plan they haven't been able to prove it When When they did win wasn't able to carry them down the stretch. They have to rely on. Chris milton and on jrue holiday. I'm gonna wait. And see what the boss and i still think that the the nets are going to be able to get there especially as collishaw said joe harris and blake griffin are able to step it up and l. dunk where we in this series right now with hard already out and irving now we have no idea on the timing there. Yeah i don't know. And i think it's okay to not know it's funny because doc rivers before the second round said that this round is going to be the survival of the fittest and at the time. He was talking about embiid's injury but he's not wrong. If kyrie mrs time you guys. He would be the seventh all-star to missed postseason action. This season alone it would be an nba record. That's a whole other conversation about how quickly they were rushed back. But i think in terms of the nets says it's a small sample size but at the same time he was very efficient in those games he shooting sixty three percent. In those games is kevin durant wanted to just him so In their winning by almost ten points on average of those four or five games But if there is one bright side. I i suppose nets fans because the issue as june said is that it looked like the bucks were starting to run into form bef- before kyri even got hurt. Pg tucker is is playing like a guy that they made a trade for. He's doing a great job As the primary defender against kevin durant. But if you're a nets fan and you're trying to glean some optimism out of this right if you're trying to turn lemons into tim cowlishaw. It's the okay the bucks do fall of history on yourself. Nets team has no history as presently constituted. This team hasn't really played together. Let me ask you question l. The idea that they have to bring hard back. Are you on board with that now. You all you have to do is look down the bench for exactly how to handle that situation poorly right. Kevin durant is playing for the nets right now because the warriors rushed him back and he hurt himself and it was a trusted. They could never build back with him. Leonard left san antonio for the same reason. Don't do it your opinion on that. I think you have to play the long game. It's not just this season that they're going for the championship. You want heart in kyrie and katie healthy forward to so i. I wouldn't want to risk injury long. I think hard being a little less of a high flying player than kyrie irving knows when he could come back at maybe eight hundred eighty five percent. And i'm gonna guess that's going to be pretty quickly. Bill plash nets. Need to rush hardened. And there's a better chance of is a better chance of durant's bodyguard coming back thing. Yeah we haven't seen much from and think we will after blowing up that separation. Anyone real quick on yanni's getting underneath kyrie irving the way he did or his body getting underneath him. Let's say was purposeful. Does anybody think that's something that calico you're shaking your. No no i mean the way kyrie leg kind of flying out there you would. I don't think you would even anticipate that that would happen. That'll be the last word here. We'll move on sons in four. Who had anybody in this panel. I don't think. I know somebody who had somebody who was sitting in the seats watching the game. Yeah okay that jokey jackson. Let's talk about this because this is pain and it's pain and it a shot which we can see is on the nose grazes nose or whether it's completely on the nose you guys can decide a flagrant two. And then you check shen in a playoff game but for it to be the league. Mvp with a flagrant two in a playoff game. That's an elimination game tim. Keller you're shaking your head in disbelief go ahead. I couldn't believe it. I think a lot of people watching couldn't believe it. I don't think it really matters whether it's a superstar. Not you shouldn't throw a good player out of a game if you breaks the guy's nose or something sure this was an inadvertent. He's swinging out of frustration. Yes he probably gonna hit him. There was never no sense. Cameron payne was ever gonna leave the game. He got bumped down the knows. He grabbed his nose and he went down to shot. Free throws and played basketball. We shouldn't we shouldn't be tossing people out of the games for this and we shouldn't be obscuring. What the phoenix suns. We're gonna do to denver anyway. Had yo could state in. That's what i really really hate about it. They were already eight. Denver was already eight points behind and struggling when that happened. Bill plaskitt you seem surprise. Keller argument inadvertent so tim. You're saying they out of the game if they want to check the injury and see how bad it is and happened. Call that inadvertent. He clearly wound up. He clearly hit him there clearly. Following the rules mean a special exception yokich clearly need to be thrown out of that game. There was no question about that. L. wasn't dejection worthy to you in a second question. How does yokich look here. Victim of a tough call or an mvp losing while getting swept out of the playoffs. Okay we're going to have to look up the word inadvertent in the dictionary. That was inadvertent to cal shop because we clearly don't think it means a sank you. I hate that. You're gonna make me side with bill here and like by the book. Yes like by the book it was technically. I disagree with him. It does matter how good the player is. that's the league. Mvp you can't kick him out. You've got gotta find a way to keep him in you give them a flagrant one. You say. watch it. Whatever i think. The idea that he he did do it in a moment of frustration is what led to the intent. He reared back back. It's the rule experts. It's the royal family. It's the rules you'll is a. You'll is a big video game player in. This gave off a lot of rage quitting vibes that being said. I think that was a bit of a camera. Pain like flair for the dramatic here. It was really like european soccer vice. Where he's kind of flailing and going out like i thought it should have been a flavor one. Obviously there was a cock back and you hit the obviously hit him in the face but it didn't seem like it got to the level where should be of flavor to my gal. You want to respond s. Your argument was dismantled by l. dunkin. There's a big difference between cocking back to hit somebody and swinging your arm fully to get the ball and you hit the guy in the nose as a win by. He didn't seem you got again though. Argue not paying paying was never gonna leave but let's throw out the mvp. Well you can be hitting the nose. Just brush up against. You really can't tell you. What a staggering was the way. Yokich would after booker there as a man. i mean. i'm not stephanie. Yokich your life. Tim cowlishaw the. Let's talk about the suns because what they've done this turn around l. Duck and this team coming to form both last year in the bubble and now this year and michael malone said chris paul could arguably be the greatest point guard of all time so when you hear the sons and how they vaulted now to the conference finals. Are you beginning to move chris. Paul up your list of all time. Point guard I think chris. Paul paul is probably athlete. Put on my list is a top by like i'm still saying that the preeminent point guard is magic. I'm still isaiah girl. And i still jason kidd girl. But for chris paul i found myself with sort of ancillary storylines really rooting for her for him based on the injury bug and his history. And what's happened to him in the past and i give a lot of credit to james jones who is the gm for the sons because he said his approach. This offseason for chris. Paul was not telling. Chris paul you know what he can do for the sons but trying to figure out what they could do for him and it is working. He has been an absolute revelation for a suns team. That has the hottest one in the nba. Now whom kyle. I would put him ahead of jason kidd on. Liz certainly not ahead of the first two but the more important thing is he might be saving the game of basketball for all of us. He went fourteen for nineteen from two point range. Nba general manager. That that's better than shooting forty five percent from three it is okay to dominate a game from inside the three point. Klatsky the nbc. This year. and i think it'd be. He's proven however next sunday the nba. Finals they won't be utah. The clippers trust me. It can't winning all. They don't match against the clippers. I'm just telling you.

Welcome back to around the horn brought to you by chase coming to you from the seaport district here seventeenth assure say. Us gone. And i use and there got it or how close i. i don't know a defeated. That's not good. The doctor who brought christian erickson back to life was the amazing news of the weekend. The other side of the stories. We'll be from danish striker martin braithwaite and what this teen had to go through. And they said we had two choices from uefa to go out and play the match. Mealy play the next day at noon. None of those choices were good. We took the lesser of two evils to finish the match but many of the players were not in condition to play the match. They were in a different space bill during at all. How do you consider it all. Shame on uefa for putting in place hands should have made. An executive decision should cancel the game. They should have rescheduled for the following evening. They should give the players time to go through their degrees of of apparently seems seemingly watching team. Die those with a paddles. The horror of the site the the impact on the team. There's no way they could play at the end. There's always gonna make a decision should have made. Its own decision cancelled. The game brought it back the next night trump. It made more sense to finish the match the next day. But we all know what would have happened if they'd have done twelve. Bill said the players. We saying they didn't give us any choice. In the matter. We would have rather take continued to playing start over or play another day. They they didn't they couldn't move it back much. Further finland got a game. Wednesday denmark has one thursday. And they've got all these other teams playing june. Yeah i don't know understand. Why uefa this decision in the hands of the players i. This is something. I think should have been above their heads. And i can't imagine just the the mental anguish. That one goes through when you see someone. Who's a friend and a teammate. Go through that on the field at work I think this is a decision where you have to take the emotions out of it and tried to make a decision as a governing body to move it back dunkin but this is why people think governing bodies are heartless right because he's were extenuating circumstances. This was like a typical soccer. Injury was an you know. An e injury. The man literally died on the field. His teammates had to guard him from people taking pictures of him with the difference defibrillator on his chest. It's like there was a happy medium between make an emotional decision right now or just cancel the whole thing and we'll just sort of seeing in perpetuity. Because given them a night at the very least it feels tough decisions to make. I think we all agree the idea of someone photographing and we ought a hard time watching this. And that was the feed from eighth but it becomes a news event. I think we understand that too but those story is they brought him back to life on the field. I mean just incredible. What doctors of medicine to do. And it's in the end just a miracle we'll move on buyers fell to novak djokovic is thrilling comeback from down to to win the french open over sixty s and the riveting fascinating seventy five dollars where he beaten adult. It's now nineteen career majors for jovovich one back federer and the dow him. What does this. French open title for joke. When the three greatest men's players of all time are done and we can look at the whole entire body of work be number one for a couple of years. You may have the most grand slam wins. But even if doesn't somehow If you look at how the careers with and when federal started winning he was beating lleyton hewitt and philipoussis and a thirty five year old andre agassi and it's no knock on those players beating them in the finals but when when jovic started winning finals he was beating federer in the doll. That's he had to get through his entire career. That's almost all he's been doing is trying to beat those two guys. And he's not nineteen times and he just did it to rafah and klay number. One says callous. Show how about you julie. The discussion around the great tennis player of all time is always centered around better and all and jovovich deserves to be one in this. I think he's in great position to eventually becomes a number one overall player. He's a better head to head on a head to head. He has a better record against a federal doll and he has spent more weeks at number one. Then both of those guys and you can't understand how hard it is to be clear. I think it's really really hard to understand so Joke richards in this conversation. I think he has a great chance of being the number one at the end of the day. all dumping. you're just shaking your head no because despite all those numbers that you just threw out if you ask any sports fan like who are the two best tennis players that are men of all time. They're gonna say rafa or listen. Christy turlington was an incredible supermodel back in the ninety s and had an iconic career. But guess what. She came out the same. Time as cindy crawford in campbell so under literally. Nothing did she can do. The only thing that he can do is be the first guy in half a century to complete a grand slam if he can win wimbledon and us open then maybe because that would be the one thing he did better than them. What we did beat the head. I think we've already established that. Wait when did this turn into next top model. I didn't see that coming all right bill. Laskey if you're gonna talk about supermodels bitches racquel welch the gold. Nobody knows what i'm talking about it anyway. Thank you for going back to that is though you would have said over. Please essel murmur. He's beating the other two players head to head and he'll become the free the first player in the open era to win each grand slams twice. I dunno edina before. He's not the greatest. Now it's going to be the greatest dunkin you play some mind games class. You're brought up supermodels and he threw gaming up to just start spouting about raphael wealth. Which is a wonderful thing but Total here bill plachy. It's over so my june lee taking the seat for show tim. Cowlishaw throws up a forty and l. in nineteen buyers fell over showdown.

It's a very evenly matched team. It's going to be a great sear. All right thank you very much. You take away great. You know what you might be if they win it all.

How should this goal be remembered. L. dunkin strike from shake or for keeper. David marshall's meeting with the net. Basically like the soccer equivalent of like. This is why you should cut. The plastic offers six packs of beer because then the poor animal. We'll get caught in the net and it could choke them. That's exactly what ended up looking like it's about the reaction all right tim. This was on the goalkeeper. What was the marshall plan here. I don't know but he ended up looking like jim. Marshall going the wrong way for the vikings fifty years ago. Play forty yards out of debt. What are you going to do up there. Look like the keeper. You ended up looking the keeper. Look at this. You're wearing the same shirt caper to challenge. Shaw take your face time. Turn our attention out of the sunshine state where the best team in baseball again. Despite the fact they traded blake snell about five minutes after they lost the world series to the dodgers. They traded williamson. He wanted to this year. Tampa bay rays. Everybody thinks they always give up on players. They have the best in major league. Baseball after seventy after sixty six games. Don't do anything especially great on offense except they walk.

Let's go fish dad. I can more be guilty of recency by in prison. Me in your moment whatever. This was a great baseball series. Everything out these junior dated from the game winning double play to the home runs to the bauer kabuki photoshop on our to san diego six-run comeback last night. Of course they went extras. Of course there at drama padres took re of war for the season out in seven games. San diego four. La's three every game close. We're going to get twelve more baby. Maybe we're going to get news. Nineteen ten college call. What did you learn from this series and what we have here. I learned a long hard. Wait for those twelve games. I mean because these guys put on great shows if you watch the their series and the playoffs last year in arlington texas. Of course you saw that. The padres had the bats to score some runs on these dodgers. But they didn't have any starting pitching back. Then so they go out and get darvish and snell and then they get some of the pictures. They had healthy and they can battle. They could always score runs on them. And you have to score a lot of runs on the dodgers to compete. But like last night and eric hosmer delivering a big hit. He was ki- kind of a key. Young guy for the royals when they were going to the world series six years ago now. He's the veteran presence. They need along with machado to maybe lead them to their own world series soon. But what do we have here. I'm baiting you to tell me. This is the best rivalry in sports right. The best rivalry baseball seed in twenty years. I'm bathing you okay. Well you you win. It is and the people say it's not rivalry because the padres have done anything. Ignore the fact that we used to call the yankees and red sox this for several years. The red sox broke through in two thousand four and won their first an eighty. Jackie monja what we have here with the padres and the dodger check so i was one of those people have said. Maybe this isn't a rivalry. And i would like to retract. Okay thank you mesmerized. That's okay i mean. I think honesty usually get a few points back. But that's certainly up to you. What i love about this series well. I'm just say what i love about. This series is. It's all centered around to tease for me. Tony because he gets the home runs. He's still watching ground balls but you can't take his eyes off him and you can't take your eyes off the diego padres team. You mentioned pitching tim in eight thirty. Six two-thirds innings they've only given up eight runs to the dodgers. Their starting pitchers think about that. That's that's pretty good so they've got great pitching they've got the fact that manny machado is somehow an afterthought in this discussion tells you. Just how intriguing. The padres are usually manny's the headline here whenever we're talking about intrigue and rivalries frank guy solo. Would you learn this series this time around. Padres dodgers. well. I think the san francisco giants would like to have a word with you because they like to think that they have better rivalry against the dodgers. But i do think if you go back to the nineties early two thousands what you had with the yankees and the red sox was mesmerizing and somewhat similar. The yankees had won all these world series. All boston did in their media and their fans including jackie was whining about the curse of being. Maybe there's a cursive steve. Garvey with the san diego padres. I have no idea but that game last night was a great character building when think about the dodgers they had gone two hundred twenty five consecutive games where they had had a six run lead and won the game and dustin may last night here. We are in the sixth inning. The guys dominating the game and what do they do as always they go to the bullpen and the bullpen blows it. We see it all the time. Baseball monica mcnutt frank. I'm glad you brought that point up. And i was listening to the broadcast last night. And a-rod said that this is a team that plays with so much swag energy. A lot of that probably comes from sightseers junior but when you talk about the comeback i think how you went plays into rivalries just as much as the actual winning and losing and for this team the young guys come and get the big bad big brother in such a dominant in terms of coming back from such big deficits that speaks to where this team is headed for. Sure i agree with everybody was watching in. They're the real. Dear you say donald x ratings four to three and seven games right now. I'm not sure that qualifies. We'll move on. Because we need to talk about ballard versus tateishi junior because our says he's okay. We'll talk to you celebrating a home run like that. Just calls back to our spring training pitcher with one eye closed. Because who knows why our but he wasn't okay peaky in here which we we are spotlighting right now. Talkies called it all payback. Oh bill blatch you. What are you doing this panels losing points. Because what they're calling guys are all in trouble for bill plaschke's right he says. The dodgers are the victims of cheating again. Frank sold whose right is anybody wrong. Bill plachy and is this all good for well. Cheese is absolutely good for baseball. What a player. What a performance he put on and that weekend series. And i think some of the antics i think. Trevor bauer was right. He said you know what he's giving it some of it back to me. He's having fun out there but trevor bauer also said where you know. The old school baseball way of peaking at the signs. That's something that could get you in trouble. I think most baseball traditionalist will have an issue with that. As opposed to some of the other antics including running around the base Cheating definitely feel strong from plastic. And i'm sure he makes eloquent case about it but the bauer todd thing in particular i love it this energy i mean cheese is a guy that is bringing in an entirely new audience of the game of baseball and bauer if you want him and from the mouth then you get it right back. I loved it in cal- show tell plastic ones at nine columnist of the real time. You can't get the get the location to know what to do. It's not cheating. Jackie macmullan. I want my points back. Because i've made a living on this show disagreeing with. That's how i spent. I've stayed all these years on this show. I don't know about the cheating part of it. That's that's that's i understand franks point. I don't know that everyone loves that. But aside from that. I love this more than bench clearing brawls and they did have a bench clearing incident but not bra. I'm all about this on twitter. It's on social media. You're poking fun. That's what makes great rivalries. That's what gets trashed outgoing. I think we can all sign off on that old back. In the reason. I keep mentioning the yankees because i want upset bill. Plachy number one thing though. Jackie it's all fun and games until they got to the playoffs last year and then grabbed her all started throwing his glove in his hat after belgium made the great catch on tat cheese and then manny machado was the one that was getting upset. So we're all going to sit here and say no no. They should be allowed to celebrate but it was the padres that got upset less you because they felt the dodgers at crossed the line. Remember that so maybe they'll learn something. Frank happens sometimes. you know. Maybe you're saying everything is great. Well they became arbiters of what is acceptable. And what isn't they. Were the ones that were losing it. When the dodgers went overboard celebrate on rules everybody has a different book. They go to because bauer that were so intriguing to me. Because he's he understands. No pitcher should be throwing out a guy over how they react to a home run. It's my job to strike the guy out which is refreshing to hear. Not every pitcher feels that way and then two seconds later. It's just the other way on the peekaboo there so he so hard to read. This is so good. I'm here for the next five months. We'll move on madison going. I don't know where i'm going. But i'm still here. Madison bumgarner no hitter in a game for baseball. But it's not an official. No hitter explained to me. Mlb was the one who decided. Doubleheaders would be seven innings. Now and bumgarner allows no hits pitches. A whole day gets the shutout got the win. How does not get any no hitter. Go ahead defend your sport. It get a no hitter. Because he didn't get twenty seven outs. It's not a complete gay. It's not a real wasn't completely avenue game. Seven inning games are we. It's a product of the virus of the availability of teams and try to cram in as many games as you can in a certain number of days if you pitch and the rain and it rained out after six or seven innings. That's not a no hitter. This is not a novak. You shaking your head no please. If you pitch in the rain and you'll get rained out. It's not a no hitter. Was perfect weather. Tim perfect weather. He pitched exactly how many innings he was allowed to pitch. Believe me if tom could've it would've made everybody come back out for two more mornings. Don't sit there and tell me about how pure your sport is. When now when there's extra innings you put a guy on can't have it both ways. No right guys stolen. Well then blame the commissioner jackie because those are the rules that were set forward by the league all the way back in one thousand nine hundred ninety one mad bomber has been outstanding. His last two starts. Era is under one. He's a terrific pitcher former world series. Mvp but even he knows that is not a no hitter. It was seven innings. Tim for the first time in his life happens to be one hundred percent right. He didn't get twenty seven outs. He knows if the diamondbacks no the brave certainly no because they can get a hit off they go. They can get hit Well maybe you would say. Tim's right for the second time in his life because both of you went to the same closet got the same exact eight. Please listen here. Twinsies when the rule was made in nineteen ninety-one no one can vision. Protect your ears. This unprecedented circumstances that will lead to me. But if you tell me that we're going to have a seven series or seven inning game and that's a total game and i have a perfect performance then it counts. The rule is dumb. Cowlishaw back yet. Pick up the pieces i mean. I don't think it's fair to let. Jackie monica post stopped me and frankly ladies are all very similar to back off a little bit. Wardrobe had one hit in fourteen innings. Nobody's going to bring that. That'd be helpful. All right well macmullen. Nineteen and i sold us well mcnutt eleven and then realized he dressed like i it today. These selected zero.

That's geico dot com. Welcome back to around the horn. Coming to you from the heineken river deck pier. Seventeen late sunday afternoon. Shocker from college basketball. Make a double take you see across this. Is this for real kim. Mulkey leaving baylor to go to lsu. Three championships wins at baylor. She grew up in tick fall louisiana state championships at having high school and then the two championships as a player. But that was a louisiana tech. Lsu job monica by herself mochi. Making the mood. I'm buying this. Kim mulkey has proven that she can win. She's one of just four coaches that have three national titles and she's won twenty games in each of the twenty one seasons that she's been at bulky the at baylor excuse me. Lsu on the other hand hasn't been to the tournaments that's twenty seventeen. They haven't won a tournament game since two thousand fourteen. She's bringing winning ways to an sec. That's already tremendously respected for women's basketball. This cala show. This is your cap. Baylor basketball go ahead. i'll give it. It's puzzling move. And i think i think she like a lot of great people is a little difficult to deal with. And maybe not totally close to the baylor. Men's coach but respect anybody's decision. Who's had a great career that wants to ended up in a way that. Wow that's an odd move. She's from louisiana. Wants to close it out there and be a hero. They're finally sorry. I just muted you. You must be a little difficult to deal with. Jackie macmullan jackie. Here's the one thing about. Kim mulkey indisputable. She is an independent thinker. That does per way whether you like it or not. Lsu's coming off a major scandal when baylor was embroiled in the major scandal. Was there a better spokesperson for baylor than kill moat monkey. Aside from that she just a flat out terrific cope. No i'm just saying for baylor recall. Exactly we're talking about. Oh that's but that's what i'm saying. It doesn't matter what we thought which she did for baylor. What the way. She backed her own school. That's what i'm talking about whether we like or disagree and we all disagreed at the time but the one thing about her is she wins everywhere she goes she scares people she's a she's and i don't mean players. I mean other coaches. Because that's how she is. She's i think she's a real dynamite. Started mulkey making the move from baylor. Lsu i think jackie judd under percent right. The one thing that she's going to do is win. Yes she getting probably gonna get a lot of money absolutely. She's not going anywhere. She doesn't think she could win. You have to transfer portal. And what tim said it makes me laugh at. She wasn't getting along with the men's to care. All i know the only thing that could have been more stunning would have been gino. Rem had left uconn to me. This came out of nowhere. She's a great coach the fashion on the sidelines. She is the whole package. Yeah it's got. You got the championship prevail this year. All right well. He's got two more to catch up. The greatest coach in baylor history. Kim mulkey will move on buyers fell to thirty. Three points ran out yesterday in his first game back after after missing three after i gave back after missing. Twenty twenty eight minutes and it was cruise control an easy thirty three. And that's rolled son. Frank woody by yourself well. He wanted an academy award last night and now he's the leading candidate for sixth man of the year. In fact he stuff that came up to pinch last night. Tony nets finally followed my advice. I've been telling team for the longest time if you're gonna play in twenty eight minutes. Brought them in with eight minutes to go in the second quarter. I met that meant out of the thirty. Two minutes remaining. They could play him for twenty eight smart. Move by steve nash. And by the way kevin durant still pretty good. Moniker not pretty good. Yeah there's no secret that when katie came in the second half that's when this game opened up up until that point that have been a really good game including the sponge. The sons having a thirteen point lead at one point he described it like riding a bike. He's part of that elite group that is truly like that. Give them a basketball warm-up. He's banned words from monica appropriate. You say so go ahead to a tribute to durant and it's not as easy as riding a bike for some anthony davis came back with seven hundred. Twenty nine mavericks for two nights. Durant came back and he was kevin durant. That's remarkable and that's the thing about durant. He makes it look so easy so effortless to seven foot guy. Ailing the ball's shooting threes. It's not easy. It's a lifetime of work. You know what. I looked at four in the box score. Tony's turnovers those twenty eight minutes. Only one turnover. You just let the game come to him. He didn't force anything. Fire sell three. Nfl draft seventy four hours away. The san francisco forty nine. They traded up to get the number three. And it'll be mack jones or trey lance at number three or they take. That's according to right before the nfl network. Sports todd mcshay reporting kyle. Shanahan wants jones. Maybe the front office wants lane so of all that true seemingly roulette. Justin feels with them. Jimmy garoppolo on notice as we all suspected buy or sell tim. I'm still selling it. I think they're missing out on a guy named justin fields. But if it's between those two. I think it's gotta be mack jones. I think you gotta go with the who did it for alabama rather than the guy who might be a great player but barely played this past mcnutt. There's something to be said for the fcc to we're going to talk ohio state bias when it comes to their quarterback then i wanna talk fcs bias and there's a guy named carson winston who sort of kind of a mess right now. I'm just not in land. So i think what they're doing here as well when you move up in the draft. They know who they want so they already have their guy targeted and i get the whole justin feeling. Whoever is drafted ahead of him. There's going to be a ton of pressure on. But i do think tim. I think there is some truth to that. Where there's a bit of a bias against quarterbacks in real estate for the success or lack thereof that they've had in the nfl so. I want to believe that everything that's been reported is true because every reporter just named top notch knows their business inside out but just days before the draft. What happens all of a sudden all. The waters are murky. How can this be so murky for the top three picks. We've been saying for months what they're gonna be now all of a sudden. We're not sure you're not buying a trade off to get to take you. They knew they wanted all this stuff. That oh shanahan wants one runoff. His once and other smoke and mirrors interesting monarch nuts. Never got what. I sent you the list of banned words that you can't you got that. That's the one you i defended by using my goodness she. That's it that's it college show. I sold them. Mcmullan showdown superbeets. Hey kim taylor glazer change your blazer so you don't look like i sold a catholic joined the ghana's brecca talladega this weekend. This car was airborne for seconds. I mean totally over bubble cars. The god who said on one hand. I'm mad about being in the crash on the other hand. I'm happy to be alive on another hand. I'm wondering what are we going to stop because this is dangerous. What are they doing. I gotta roll bar head. That's not okay. So he had three hands a roll bar. Does that bubble walls told you is car with complete cheryl. He said quote. I'm telling you my underwear is worse than my car thing. it all. Just say what. Frank i still. That's good quote by bubba. The need for speed. They make these cars lighter and faster this stuff happens. It's amazing that no one was hurt and it's amazing that all those other cars somehow avoided him remarkable really but the thing about talladega. Frank is there have been people hurt there. There have been people killed there. And there's a reason it's always the number one track people talk as the most dangerous. So i'm listening to. What can you do to make that. Racecourse safer come on this. Just the car is constructed. How it goes eric knowledge. Oh yeah we'll split the point and we move on. We have some great catches from the weekend. Let's take a look old kowloon. He's had to catch. the fed. Had the catch paul. Who's a good catch. But not the best catch. Maybe when you consider album were junior ranging to the wall or tracking appraiser going completely parallel. Gronk catching the football from a helicopter. Six hundred feet which was a world record. What we the catch the weekend. Jackie by i love gronk and this is crazy to me but come on. Let's give it to cole. Calhoun because when that little kid with a crash. Davis glasses stole that from. He's thinking i should be open. It's okay it's foul here. You go kid have a fist bump instead. If the poor kid was from chicago they make him out to be a villain. How 'bout gronkowski ball out of a helicopter from that height. Remarkable that he did it smart wearing a helmet to i mean terminal velocity does exist in the world frank. It's what's the shocker. With gronk is he didn't add another ninety feet. Remember six hundred and ninety four face. Todd lebron james is already missed now. Eighteenth straight game since he entered the league. We've never gone this long without seeing lebron james play. So we'll talk about the other king from akron steph curry. How about the month that he is having. You know that. Larry bird had eighty. Two three-pointers led the league in nineteen eighty five. Eighty six steph. Curry has five with a month of april and he could get one hundred because he's got two games left pretty good champ. We'll see you tomorrow.
