Which Conor McGregor Will Show Up at UFC 257?
"Aerial. Thank you so much for joining me man. It's good to have you back my old friend pablo. It's good to hear from you. You don't call as much. But i do get very excited when you do reach out. Aerial halawani has covered mixed martial arts for fifteen years and he hosts the dc in hawaii. Podcast for espn. I don't call you much. But i call when it's important and it's an important time in your life right now in the life of conor mcgregor right now. You just spoke him in a big sit down four. Espn ahead of this. Weekend's big fight against us poor area so how would you describe how. Connor is feeling mentally right now. So that's a great question. Because i've been covering connor since two thousand thirteen since right before his have debut in. I've obviously seen all the extreme highs and lows of his career. Of course it's been a roller coaster especially the last few years when he became this This megastar this time around. Had you asked me which connor would be in front of me. When i spoke to him would it be the zen like connor. Would it be the trash talking. Connor the jovial connor. You know all the different iterations. I would've said it would have been the urinated conor mcgregor upset conor mcgregor the conor mcgregor. Who had big plans in two thousand twenty to fight. At least three times to fight manny pacquiao right. Reclaim his spot. As the man the king in may but none of that happen instead. What got pablo was actually got a very relaxed conor mcgregor accountable gregory who is like slouched in his chair. I've never seen him sit like this before he was wearing a new custom suit but he's wearing slippers as well sort of like all of us working at home these days as always already all we focus on the positive side. I was ready to continue and it didn't go that way. It is what it is. I still have that inside me now. I'm still ready to go of kept. Preparations are back. And i'm very happy to be back. Twenty twenty one. We're going to replicate this again. I'm starting the year force. Pay per view of the year and a very excited about that. He was very chill. He was very calm cool collected. I don't know if i've ever seen him that. Calm before fight. So i was pleasantly surprised to see that i wanna get into how he may have arrived at that mentality because it's been a year aerial since mcgregor last fought. That fight lasted forty seconds. It ended with mcgregor knocking out. Donald sironi so can you take us back to the aftermath of those forty seconds. What was the expectation for. What would come next for conor mcgregor so going into that fight. Everyone who's like izzy back. Is he still good. Can he stay out of trouble all this stuff and then he comes in there and completely. You know rex ceremony. What about its many style. Vegas is on fire. He gets on the microphone from town. He's calling everyone out. King is back. I mean it's just an electric seen. Only he can bring to the fight. Game had opportunity to go in his locker room afterwards and interview him. And i would describe him in that moment as happy excited actually even a little emotional as well i. I saw him get a little emotional but not satisfied. He wanted to fight february. He in his mind needed to make up for lost time because he didn't fight in twenty nine thousand nine. He spent more time in legal trouble than actually fighting twenty eighteen. The one fight against habib twenty seventeen. The floyd fight so he wanted to make up for lost time. He was pushing to fight the following month. And if not he wanted to fight in march and then of course in march everything changed and what was so interesting about what happened in march was instead of being upset. The press annoyed pissed off like the rest of us that are plans are big. Plans are big twenty. Twenty plans had been derailed. Connor almost took it upon himself to act like a politician. What does that mean. So like conner had a very close relationship with the irish people and they loved him right they had this amazing support towards him and dislike this unwavering loyalty towards him and in two thousand nineteen. They kind of turned on him. And you know you can make a strong case that they were in the they were in the right to do a lot of things to really upset them. Most notably punching that that old man in the bar that was caught on camera and so in march when the country is down in its lockdown. And everyone's depressed. He's doing these presidential videos. Truly down must began and it must begin now. The literally you go online. And he's standing there like president politicians what they should be doing. We must our airports. We must all non-essential business. We must cook all non essential travel. I wanted to call upon my people that were eight people of ireland. This fight needs us all and he started leading by example and he started filming his home workouts and he started donating millions of dollars in personal protective equipment and visiting children's hospitals like say what you about connor and twenty nineteen in two thousand eighteen. He really was on his best behavior in the early portion of the pandemic and really took it upon himself to be this sort of a beacon of light if you will or this positive role model for these people and and i think that he stepped up a lot of people didn't expect that out of him and i think it was sincere was genuine but you know to try to give back to community.

Vikings back to five hundred and then is mitchell trubisky and the bears ten point lead late in the fourth quarter fumble leading to a pair of lines touchdowns and the bears lose again their sixth straight defeat after starting the season five and one and that was the conversation.

Amber Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI way knew that he was having these phone calls it was supposed to be having he got fired after only being in the administration for the 24 days. Something like that. So which is, uh, to Scaramucci is so Flynn is is gone. And then the Miller investigation kicks up and they're like, Oh, well, we got Flynn. I mean, he was lying to us. So then they used him for Basically the kind of leveraged him in order to to bring out more information. And then all of a sudden, the Justice Department said. You know what? Mueller? Let's limit the scope of your of your investigation. You can't follow the breadcrumbs to anything else that might happen, so it just turned into a real You know, just a real mess. You know, Flynn was supposed to be Sentence. The Justice Department said to the judge. We want to drop the charges dropped the charges. He just pled guilty. Yeah, but we don't want to charge him. And the judge said, No, That's not how this works. So how any of this works? And so that was that was being hung up in court, and Trump just came outside. Dad. He's off the hook.

He's got too much money in some industries somewhere, whatever. Security consultant. International affairs, blah, blah, blah. I'll get something Worry about the trump the trump phenomenon. We had a gentleman who called us earlier in the show, and he was He was sort of the same mind set is I am And that is It's not Trump It's It's the playbook that Trump is writing, or rather resurrected from past leaders, not American leaders. Here. You've got a charismatic Well known figure. And I mean, he figured if we blew up the world of politics in United States, but he tapped into what is a psyche that we've seen play out historically. That ends up hitting neighbors against neighbors and races against races and it divides the country into the haves and the have nots even further, and he knew this. And he used it to his advantage, and he got rid of anyone that was willing to challenge his power like John Kelly. Like Rex Tillerson, who somehow ended up looking like a good guy by the time that he was done James Mattis, Dan Coats Sally Yates, who I just mentioned selling, it's got fired because she wasn't willing to Theo defend them.

What do we know about Joe Bidens cabinet?
"Us president donald trump was never going to react to losing the two thousand and twenty election gracefully us. President donald trump has never reacted to anything gracefully as we go to air trump continues to insist that he's crack. Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil. Baron wants personally awarded. Russia's order a friendship medal by president vladimir putin president-elect to biden could scarcely have made a moral docs pick as america's top diplomat. And that's where the men and women of the state department foreign service officers civil service. That's where they come in. I've witnessed their passion their energy their courage up close. Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back. Diplomacy is back.

"North america fossils of duck billed. Dinosaurs are abundant so abundant that paleontologists sometimes ignore them in search of more exciting species like t rex triceratops. They were so common often. Wouldn't lock them and just left him out in the field university of bath evolutionary biologist. Nick long rich but duck bills had never been found in africa.

Their its presence in north. Africa was problematic because the late cretaceous period. The planet was warmer which means sea levels were higher. Africa was isolated from all the other continents by water and there didn't seem to be any way that they could get their in this. Perhaps duck bills swim hundreds of miles across open ocean from what is now europe. It's not as far fetched as it might sound. In fact paleontologist once thought duck billed dinosaurs were aquatic but that theory eventually fell out of favour nonetheless. There's evidence that duck bills were well adapted for swimming. they had these really big powerful hind limbs. Great big feet. They've got a long deep tales. It could've used for sculling. They might have been pretty good swimmers. Plus other animal species have been known across oceans albeit rarely elephants monkeys and even hippos for example. Have all colonize new places after swimming or floating. There it's incredibly improbable. But over millions of years these once millionaire events will happen on average once every millionaires to better understand the migrations of duck billed dinosaurs long rich and his colleagues reconstructed their evolutionary tree. The duck bill seem to originate north america. They migrated across the land bridge into asia. Jump over into europe and then finally this european lineage. one branch of that evolutionary tree jumps into africa. Long rich's team dubbed the new species are not yet odysseus.

Learning How to Lead with Ryan Hawk
"Ryan hawk on dose of leadership man. I'm excited that you're here. Welcome the show my friend. I appreciate it. Thanks for having me rich You know we've been connected the lincoln and obviously had known about your show for a long time so similar past but always wanted to have you on this show talked. Nfl leadership junkie so man. I'm glad you're here. Like i said thanks for having me it I was read about. Your story is pretty wild especially with everything. Going on as a pilot and september eleventh man. I was I was like wow. This is going to be interesting. Yeah no it's it's it's been a journey but it so i'm curious i i would bet that are past. They're similar in the sense. That if i understand correctly football was kind your dream as you were growing up and then going through college and then you played somewhat professionally as well right and then. How did that in. I don't quite know the story how that ended. Why did the football come to an end. Eventually they tell you you're not gonna Like most guys they re. The sport retires you tire from. And so i played after college. I played for a few years in the arena. Football league briefly went up to canada. And cfl you know handful of workouts in the nfl and then they they say Yeah you're you're you're okay. But not good enough to To make it to the upper echelon of the sport and the nfl where you can actually earn a living and the really gripe played. It's essentially like playing minor league baseball right. You do you do it for the opportunity to keep playing into potentially catch. Someone's eye so that you could maybe have the story like kurt warner right. Kerr played in the arena. League gets gets a workout. He impresses he gets a job. The starter gets hurt and all the rest is history is now in the hall of fame. So i think that's why you do it you you and that's why i did it for a few years and I love those great experience. I mean you. Don't you can only do that when you're still in the prime of your athletic life and and so i'm glad i did it even though it delayed a little bit of my professional career but I i definitely don't regret. Yeah with so when you found it came to an end was it. Was it something you kind of always knew is going to happen you prepared for you said you know what i'm going to play ride this out as long as i can and then i'm going to start some sort of professional career and business or something that always in the back of your mind or was it like with me. I always thought. I was going to be a pilot and west when nine eleven happened and i got thrust in the corporate arena was a little bit of panic. Initially but How was it for you. Well i you know. I think kids. Are i talk with high school and college kids now. They're just so much smarter and better intentions than i did. When i was in college I didn't even really think about not playing football right And and so That could you know. I had friends who were really good about Building relationships creating connections setting themselves up for for life after college. I just wasn't one of those people. I i was immature like a lot of twenty two year olds and so i didn't have any thought of not playing I just happened to get really lucky. I am a family friend. Decided to take a chance on me and hire me into a sales job and And then just said hey just kind of use the same type of work ethic you learn as a player but now do this year for this job and if you do I have a hunch that things will go well. his name's rex. Goswell still a great friend to this day and just i'm just lucky. I had a person who is willing to take a shot. And then i as i try to do. I like to prove people right When they believe in fortunately it kind of my career went from there man. What a blessing to have that person kind of in your corner to kind of steer you. They saw something in you right. Which i think is an obligation of all this leaders right. Great leaders kinda see something that we don't even seen ourselves ripe and they help extract that out of you. That's great and then as i suppose you started working and that's when it was a lexus nexus nexus right and so you're in this sales position in this professional role like with me that's when it became. I started getting these moments of clarity of like. Oh where i came from. In my case it was the marine corps and flying planes in my mindset was limited. When i first started in thinking all i know how to do sleigh airplanes and but then as i got into the corporate arena i started saying oh i did learn a lot more than just flying airplanes. I'm assuming the probably same happen you with your football experience in in the great coaches and mentors you surrounded yourself around most of your life. I learned i learned how to develop a work ethic. I learned resilience. I learned preparation. I learned being coach -able. I learned how to collaborate with others. i got to college. I was on a much more diverse team people from wide variety of backgrounds. And i played a in the arena league down in birmingham so completely different from where. I'm from here in ohio and so i would say i think i learned about people. I learned a lot about myself. Learn about how to work. I learned how to do extra. I learned all that from my coaches from playing sports. And so i. I just tried to take that into the professional world and i liked the profession of selling because the people who were landing at the top of the stack rankings. The people who were making the most money the people who are getting promoted. They were the ones who were working the hardest. I don't have any experience. But i do think i could work And so i i. I was willing and still. I'm willing to to to work really hard at it. And then Eventually led to me. You know having some success in doing well exceeding the goals accompany set for me and then that led to promotions and more opportunities. And so i think that's that i direct all of that back to a combination of two things. One my family. My parents my brothers as well as My coaches who really taught me how to out of work once. I want for my eighth grade to ninth grade year.

For The Love Of Begonias
"In our main segment today. Ellen i wanted to talk about begonias because this is you know in the fall i bring my begonia plants back from summer camp and into the house and in most i would say most rooms of my house that have a window there is at least one. Begonia and the range of sizes and types is so amazing and it occurred to me that if some of our listeners don't have a lot of experience with begonias we need to be a cheerleader for this planned and tell people all of the variety and the amazing qualities that so many of them. Have you know. I wasn't sure when you said you wanted to talk about begonias. I was pretty sure you were talking about indoor begonias but i also thought could we just save a moment sometime to talk about the hardy begonia. Because it's such a great perennial and so underused so just let's make sure we save time for that to absolutely well. Of course on my mind is the not hardy begonias in that. I grow many of them in pots and they go outside in the summertime an inside in the wintertime. Let's just kind of talk about the fact that there are so many you know i read that there are fifteen hundred species of begonia. That does not surprise me. And they're hugely varied from the little ones with tiny little demure flowers to some of those giant leave tropical rainforest hairy plants that scramble for yards. But i bet you have a favorite. Do you have a favorite whatever. I looked at ten minutes ago. Yeah i gotta say. I find the wrecks pagodas to be absolutely irresistible the foliage color. The fact that you don't even care if they flower because the patterns of color and the shape of the leaf. Just i just love rex begonias. It's interesting to me. That the leaves of at least i think the majority of begonias are asymmetrical this plant. That they don't have symmetrical leaves which often makes them more interesting and the wrecks pagonis as you say the color purples and blues and silver. Those are just wonderful plants for putting in say window boxes shade or you know as a container component in shade gardens You asked about my favorite's the one. That sort of immediately comes to mind as one that i find so intriguing is one that a friend gave me and it's called. The immense begonia and it is immense the stem on this begonia is a good two inches in diameter and it kind of winds around like a snake and then the the leaves are good six inches across and long. But the most amazing thing about it is to stems. And of both the go up to the leaves. And the underside of the leaves are covered with bright pink hairs. That almost look like thorns. And i would love to see a picture of the i do not know that begonia. But your description is making me desire it and it flowers in the wintertime. It's clearly triggered into flowering by long night short days And so starting. In about january it puts out lung fronts a bright pink flowers and when you have it in a window the wonderful thing is those those bright pink hairs get back lit when it comes in the window. It is stunning. It is huge. It is very heavy. I bet when. I brought it in my husband said. Why don't you let me help you with that. And i said you know the funny thing about this. Begonia is the plant is heavier than the pot. The clay pot was not as heavy as the actual plant. Because it's you know so massive.

You could do it every time, and it's a terrible call. I hate it I wanted out of the sport, but anyway you could call it an every. Listings that or or a referee spot of the ball? You know what I mean like. I saw one thing. The NBA did a great commercial years ago. When people like Hey, the NBA is coming back. It's really exciting showed to. They showed someone crossing the street or like someone crosses street in a car. Going around the person crosses read. They shot it from above. They diagrammed it like it was the perfect pick naive to allow the car to go around. Around?

Hear to want to hear what Patrick Beverley is saying to whoever he's checking up on like I wanNA hear how he gets into someone's head. It's it's gotta be amazing. The other thing that I think guys that that when when I think about this. I think about myself going playing. It would be hard to especially when you're used to a crowd and guys like Lebron and those guys who've played in front of crowds forever now. When you go into a gym and there's nobody in there. It feels like scrimmage, and it feels like a practice and you know I worry about a bad call and a guide just boating the. punting the ball into the stands, and just being out fuck this and walking off the court. You know because the now hopefully. They've had this schooling while they've been there to be like guys listen. This is important. Like. Yes, you cannot if you do. They're serious repercussions, but yeah. I worry about how. You know how guys are going to interact with officials and stuff. Treat it like that. They should treat it like. Can you hear me man? y'All got in the Army Yup. They should treat the scrimmage from the last dance between Jordan magic and treat it like the heat. That thing as there is good. In that. The level of competition was above the rim, and it was above the level of normal scrimmage felt like a real game. You know they should dig into those things I. There's real stuff on the line I mean the the crazy thing is this season was gonNA line up to be amazing. You're looking at the Lakers and the clippers as you know. West Western confidential Western Conference finals in new and again you're looking at Toronto in Milwaukee in the East. That would have been amazing that just you think about those teams you think about those players in the NBA has stars on so many teams right now that. Joel embiid on the sixers in like just a guy like that. You always have a shot. Don't sleep on the Celtics. Slave on the Celtics. We will young team. You know who's going to be different player when he comes back. Gordon Hayward Yano, man that. Dude. He was getting it back now. He's now he's done the same footing with everybody else and sleep on. The Celtics Man I watched a game with Gordon Hayward and he would have like the beginning of the season. When he was coming back, he would have one great game and then I'd Games but I saw a great game that he had and I'm like no one can check this guy in with Brad. Stevens, you know ball datum though. On Brown Kemba, come on! Those guys are a nightmare. They just they need a big. They need big, but if you if if. That's a team that. This pandemic.

The kind of talk bites any stranger. Who tried to pet him. Megan likely to do a couple alpha roles to gain REX's respect, and she certainly received a few nips before he bonded with her. But oft four months rex. Meghan, we're a functional team. They shipped off to future in early two thousand five. Meghan wasn't sure what to expect. It had barely been six months since rex finished his first tour, and the Marines was still gathering preliminary Intel. But Meghan did know they'd be targets. The Iraqi insurgents had realized military dogs for a major threat and now aims their guns accordingly. But. Meghan was again all in. Before long she helped rex find I bomb. From, their homework went much like Mike's. Meghan would take rex ahead if the unit on his six foot leash while fellow marines watched her back. She'd keep her eyes focused on the dog primed for the tiniest change or motion. REX would give a flip of his tail. A big sniff a look back. The explosive. Ordinance Disposal Team called the E. OD would pull out the or explosives cash. Then rex got to play with his ball. Walk Signal. E. O. D. I. E. D. Full. Sniff tense up. He owed E. R. E. D.. Full step point. D. I. E. D. Bull over and over each time a success. Megan and rex were so good. They went on a second deployment this time to Ramadi another city in Iraq. Megan grew to love rex, not just as her partner in the field, but as her partner socially. Meghan said REX was a great icebreaker for her especially as they worked with different units. She later said she never personally experienced the sexism that so prevalent in the military. Perhaps that was because if anything, a person with the dog is treated better than a person alone and if anyone tried to mess with Meghan they'd risk a bite from rex. And Bite he did. Unlike Mike Megan let people pet rex. She figured they learned their lesson quickly. Rex hadn't changed, but the Marines apparently found his mean streak in deering. And as the woman, the mean dog loved Meghan quickly gained the respect of her tough guy, peers. She also earned their respect by saving lives. Together Megan and rex completed over a hundred successful missions. They planned another on September fourth two thousand six during this second in Ramadi. A new army units had just arrived in. Iraq and we're eager to have a canine units. Join them for an upcoming patrol. They requested to dog teams, but unfortunately that just wants enough available. The military would only allocate one team for the mission. Given that it was a green team of recruits, and the Meghan was the most senior of the two handlers she volunteered. She knew her experience could help everyone. Alongside the squadron, Meghan and REX set out into the heat in early September. The temperature in Iraq could hit over a hundred degrees Fahrenheit. It was an unexplored area, but rex searched with relish. Found one boom another two more each buried deep in desert sand, ready to destroy a passing vehicle at the first ring of an insurgents phone. Five hours passed and they were on a.

"And REX led the charge. Entering would appear to be a bedroom. REX paused tales stiffening. He lifted his head to snort. Then resume sniffing, taking faster bigger breaths pulling in more sense. Mike, new this so-called change in behavior signal. That rex had found something. Rex wriggled under the bed. Mike's Pulse race does he observed his dog? The other Marines of the room halted fixed on. Rexes let tail. Rex, slipped out clutching something, lodge and round in his teeth. Wrecks and Mike both grew excited. They done it. They found a bomb. They'd saved lives. Rex Turn to Mike and displayed his find. It was a soccer ball. The Marines had misjudged. This home was just a home. Rex's excitement was just that of finding a toy, proving even the best trained military working dogs. It's still fun loving animals that heart. A few days later Mike and rex return to I e E. D, Alley! Everyone was still convinced. That was a hidden stash of explosives in the area. If they could uncover the cash of Aidi components, they stop the insurgents for at least a few weeks, possibly saving thousands of lives. This time they headed away from civilization. Rex Sniff through open desert past baking sanding crackling brush. The afternoon heats was rising close to one hundred thirty degrees Fahrenheit. As they search the area Mike began to worry for REX's safety. Dogs can only sweat through their tongues than the pads on their feet. If X didn't enough to release the sweat from his mouth. His tongue would swell up. He choke before he died of heatstroke. So Mike. To give rex frequent water breaks. When rex finished lapping up water, Mike called out the command. Seek seek seek. On Q. Rex zigzagged forward Mike trotting behind him. Tramping through the dirt and Browning Grass Rex's tail flicked. The might be something here. Mike watched as rex kept sniffling along the ground. Another Tail Flick Rex stopped looking at the grounds in front of him. He looked pointedly up at Mike. Then back at the ground. It was the same tactic. Most folks used to alert their owner to an empty food bowl, but with highest stakes much higher stakes. Mike, flag the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team who hurry Dover with metal detectors. Hoping it wasn't another soccer ball. The mechanical detectors verified the Canine had found one. They'd come across something buried in the desert. Something big. Shovels hit the sand and three feet down. They found the motherload. Grenades mortar shell's detonation cord P. Four. Rex hadn't just found one bomb. He'd found the materials foot dozens. Mike reached in his pocket and pulled out the bright red cone bowl. He kept just for occasions like these. Wrecks had done his job now. He got to play. While the Explosive Ordinance Disposal. Team cleaned up. The Explosives Mike played, fetch tug-of-war and chase with the German shepherd. To this rex became a beloved fixture around the military base. Mike said having a dog with. You gives you a sense of home. That was certainly true as they move through the triangle of death, the areas surrounding Baghdad and eventually future. Units fought to take my correct sounds on daily patrols. They sneak him unauthorized trees from their holes and emory's or meals ready to eat. They nicknamed him sexy rexy and t rex on more than one occasion Mike open to cap package from home to find full of treats for REX. He founded adorable. Though rex wasn't so easily pleased, he was a picky dog who preferred bones. Although he wouldn't say no to the occasional emery bite, rex was as Mike said too proud to beg. Like old dogs, rex have personality all his own. He was smart and eager to succeed clearing roads, buildings, and 'cause with every sniff. He gave us servicemembers and Iraqi civilians peace of mind. This place was safe this onto. Rex slowly grew used to the frequent pangs of guns and explosions across the desert. He La not to box so much and Mike learn to keep his cool to. Over the ensuing months, wrecks found dozens of bombs. He also brought Mike's attention to pet rabbits, groups of excited Iraqi children and once even litter of abandoned puppies. Thanks to rex and Mike's Intel. No one else would go into Iraq blind. Though that didn't make the region any less dangerous. In September, two thousand and four Mike and REX was scheduled to return home. Their work had been exemplary and six month deployments had finally come to an end. Wrecks and Mike had done their job with dedication, and on UH setting the stage for a series of dog teams to follow in their path, but Mike hope to fit in one last mission. Around six, am he and REX Fuca to roll memo, dear alongside combined, anti armor team. REX jumped into a Humvee and Mike was about to follow him. Then, they got the orders. Go, home right now. The tour was over. Mike called rex out of the Humvee, and hurriedly packed up his belongings. The Humvee left without them. As Mike in rex finish packing one lost I e D responded in the distance. The sound felt normal now. Rex didn't even balk. Neither thought much of it. Until later on when Mike learned that the I. E. D. had blown up the very, Humvee rex was sitting in that morning.

Look at your time line and tell me what you're seeing. I'm seeing pandemics and I'm seeing politics and I'm seeing. Maybe a little bit of Tom Brady in Tampa Bay which is might be the weirdest part of the whole thing and then I'm seeing a guy in the rain running into a stop sign and I'm seeing a kid getting smacked in the face by an elephant and I'm seeing another kid given out free. Hugs at nursing homes and That's that's what I'm looking for. Where are you seeing this? I'm seeing that from the most unlikely source. I think maybe ever which is At Rex Chapman Ryen. Which do I notice rex? Chapman popping up on your timeline. It was probably a year ago in the spring of Twenty nineteen and I started to get the texts from friends who were saying. Have you seen this video? And have you seen that video? And have you seen? Who is posting these videos? I'm part of this generation where I remember. Rex Chapman as Mr Kentucky basketball. I mean this must be the greatest high school basketball player that ever lived and then he's the first draft pick of the Charlotte Hornets and then he's in he's the white dude in the dunk contest. And then he's hanging thirty nine on Jordan. What he's with the Miami Heat he's Rexon. He's King Rex. He's sexy rexy and I'm like there's no way this is the same rex. Chapman has to be this other. Shabina out there. That just happens to be some borrow twitter superstar and it turns out they are the exact same person I think. A lot of people seeing XS tweets for the first time had a similar reaction but I also find it very funny that some people may be in their twenties and younger might not even know who rex.

He was so smooth he was dribble behind his back. He was dishing the ball he was Dunkin. He was doing everything that require. Frankly white dude's weren't doing in college basketball that time and this is before the Internet before you could go on Youtube and post. Your own highlight video. People had heard about him but they hadn't seen him so any chance. You had to watch this kid from Kentucky. Play Ball you did it. He was foul before viral was thing. You've been under incredible pressure. And yet you just go on with life every day even though you're probably the biggest folk hero. I guess it's Cogan. Robert Disagree with that. I don't know I just take day by day. So rex was this huge star. And as you mentioned being Kentucky there was a massive spotlight on him. How did he handle that? He handled it by Kinda circle in his own wagons for me. I just wanted to play basketball. And that's it the playing part at Kentucky no problem I loved it. I was good at it. Could handle it no worries it was off court stuff. That really weighed on me. He didn't go to the cafeteria He tried to go to bars with his teammates and he was met at the door by the balancer. Who wrecks man? I'd love Login here. But everyone knows you are if I let you in here. The police will be here in four minutes. It just was it was it was a lonely existence surrounded by people all the time but alone every moment every minute that I wasn't in class or at practise either hsun by myself or sleeping and I was I think I was rationalizing as I'm getting my rest but I was depressed than just in you know back then. You didn't talk about that stuff. He believed that eighteen nineteen years old. He was just getting his rest. But the reality was He was dealing with depression by just going to sleep St cope with it. He started playing horses. He did what everyone in Kentucky does and He started playing the horses. A pretty young age and That was another time and place where he could feel normal. You know he could go to the horse track and he could put his face. You know in that race inform and everybody else's word about their race informs and they won't bother him so after his sophomore off more year REX declares for the NBA draft and he ends up with the brand new expansion Charlotte Hornets for the eighth in the draft and their first in the NBA. The Charlotte Hornets Select Rex. Chapman of Kentucky. What was that like a? It is hard to describe to someone who didn't experience it. Would Hornets Mania was like in Charlotte? This is bad basketball team. This is a team best player was Keller trip Yuka but they set an NBA record for attendance and they sold out every single game for years. It was Muggsy bogues and Dell Curry and REX. Chapman was the Young Guy. He was the face of the franchise. You the best player on the team he was in the NBA dunk contest. Meena I mean and going behind his back I mean he was he was a sensation his NBA career go. He never played an all star game.

She's like killing. Yes you did a whole book about John. Mayer Nicholas Shea. Like everyone she gave up. I gave up the good about them in bed.

Sometimes you would say dating. I wouldn't say we were dating. We were homeys can say other people you dated like Jaime Pressley Jaime Pressley. You D like the hottest girls like I'm stuck in two thousand and two. Data's teenager impressionable years. Yeah so I loved all those girls like Jamie Lee mcdonagh. The team movie I was like and that's why I wanted to look like it's not like that anymore. Like the bleach blond hair and take back then and I'm stuck in that era it works for you. Jamie was really fun. Jamie in Paris are both really cool. So how'd you get these girls? I don't know I guess they like funny Jews. Funny we'll do it for sure. I like to make people laugh. I think anyone watching out there make a girl laugh. You bypass everything else. Just make a girl laugh in. That is the best thing to make girl. WanNa hang out with you right. I'm alive works for me. Yeah I know and those girls were like oh you couldn't anyone normal because you've dated such hot girls. I feel that way with like who Dave Navarro like. I saw him the other day and I thought. Oh he's so hot but then I will never have a chance. You know what I mean. We can't compete with that but everyone's different you. Wouldn't you'd be surprised like that doesn't I mean I don't know like I just realized something like after all the years. Date the prettiest girl. This isn't that the end of the day it's kind of it just becomes normal and I don't think of it that way like they're just people I don't know rally attractive girls and guys like I shouldn't be around you. You're not yeah. I'm very dotcoms. What does that rooted with? That comes from the deal that way. I don't get star struck around like actors or musicians starstruck around like a athlete. Because I'm like Oh my God. They could do superhuman things like like one of hung out with like a big basketball fan and hung out with like the Golden State Warriors Steph Curry and I'm like Oh my God Steve Critic who Shit. He's because he's like superheroes. I don't get weird around like models or actors or musicians one that you're that like I don't get weird. Yeah I feel like as you're that person you're a model and you're an actor so it's different. I'm like a youtube or so when I mean mainstream people even though I've had mainstream people on here and they don't do as Youtube sometimes. I still get more nervous around mainstream older like legit. I shouldn't have them here. You know what I mean when you say they don't do as well you mean. The views counts ernest an interesting. Yeah so someone. I think would be huge. Yeah it's weird. I don't know I've had the same thing on my podcast like I'll have like there's like it's bad at all like Hannah stocking Rudy Mancuso like the biggest vine youtubers on and then I would imagine that they would or even Charlie Sheen had on my pod. He did pretty well. But then you'll have someone on this prisoner dude on who tells these crazy prison stories and his numbers shit on everybody. I'm like a crazy you never know what's going to resonate and that's interesting Charlie. Sheen one did well or is it actually did as I said? I realized that when actually did do well but I thought yeah I thought it would be the biggest one it was up there. It's interesting to see who who resonates. It's really weird. I know because I always think one thing and then you get someone else. Yeah I don't know but your social media and mainstream so you've merged those lines but I think it's just you gotta do that otherwise you disappear. You know you got to do something. And it's just like making people laugh so if I do it on instagram or song or Youtube skit or a movie. That's my job my tech talk. The only maybe you'll get me on those two. Maybe you'll be the final. I'll get you finally get somewhat if anyone's doing it'll be you because I I don't know I just I like I said I opened. I just feel old when I see these kids dancing. Yeah Oh yeah I was watching something you were like. Real Gaston. Someone's podcast. You say it was something like burping and farting yeah. It was Britney Furlan's Oh whereas I you know the micro but I didn't do that nothing wrong with it. I don't know I didn't do it. I forget did I sent her far on her thing and remember that it was only a couple of weeks. Yeah research like the day before I come on. I really wanted like delvin. But the thing is is like do all this research and then like when they come. I literally just want to know like have you had anal sex. Have you heard is like tuning into your show because you ask the good stuff that's liked about Howard? He would always ask questions like. Can you get on the Serbian like an Anna Nicole? What's your way like? You know you just like the craziest questions you asked him. One and I think that's what's interesting. You're doing something right. I mean you got like people love you things. I mean I really do this. It's like a lot of fun everything. How long is each one of your episodes? Usually now we end up whenever but I I was just curious about your talking only fans. I was trying to get more out of that. But we know we're not saying. How long do you normally go in bed? How long do you usually last is? It depend on the guy. Oh me I didn't go forever by a dead fish on it it's really. I'm not as crazy as people think they think kinky but since my job is literally fucking myself. I'm like you know I'm just can likely there for the real interesting exciting. Okay Yeah 'cause you interesting because yes some guys rather would have a girl who is talks crazy and desert or just lays there because I mean a pretty girl like you. That's all you gotta do. But sometimes we want you to do more no Ziama Chubby girl and you have to do more chubby girl. And that's good blowjobs. Because like when I was heavier I would be like I was like fifty pounds heavier. I remember like I would get upset like three hours. I'd get like every guy. Thank you for four hours literally. Whatever get bored after that long no offense? I think that's too long for a blowjob. I here's my theory on it. Is that like any even okay? A massage for too long could get annoying and boring. Oh yeah sex for too long to get annoying the best things in life so even eating feels like a chore after a while this gotta be the sweet spot of like just the right amount of time like even fucking after awhile. You like this getting boring. I'm just needs to be the. What's a good sexy time? Twenty Twenty with twenty minutes three times twenty minutes but just like not all in a row. We don't need to smoke for an hour. It's like it's boring. I was so bored the other night I was so bored. I like this is all over it because the guy was boring. Yeah I mean it's boring in John Do yeah. It's tricky stuff do so. Have you got married and had kids? Would you stay monogamous happily ever after with one person? You always want to have other people. No I've always been. That person will just so weird because like when I'm single I'm like promiscuous and stuff like that but I liked being ragas because I'm scared of diseases. I think when you're like you said the thing getting older. I'm so scared diseases like even the girls that I do like eating about. We show US AS TD RESULTS. Show everything just yet. 'cause they're only porn girls you know and so like. I'M NOT I don't consider myself a porn girl but because I'm like doing scenes with them I'm like okay. I should ask weeks and stuff so I so now that I'm clean. I'm very like youth like be careful. You know back in the day I never checked sticking who cares but that's why can't get pregnant twice and a blocked tubes shit. Let me I can kind of get like stuff will go up there but I have tried to get pregnant within like for like a year and a half and never got pregnant so that means you can never get no. I can't. It's just like I have to do I. B F or something like that does IVF Stanford internal vaginal fraud. What does that mean? I don't know it's at one way or the you like put d. I knew what it is I had. Ivf WE LOOK THIS UP. We ask the panel of judges back then. Ibf Is at the acronym or the letters. I mean look I I know what it stands for but I can't think of me. Just look it up because another audience is GonNa WanNa know and I'm just going to save them from look from looking it up. This isn't rude. I can look this up right. You look it up you can do. It stands for. Oh It's egg free. Oh in vitro fertilization. Each nation I knew what it was learning allies Jackson butthole. It's not as though it's like an egg and sperm and you put it together outside and then you put it in the years because I have a uterus okay. It's just hard to get the semen up there because it's kind of like blocked and scarred and ship do I have a uterus or is that a woman Oregon. We really my humor to play dumb. I like to play like a numb debate. I'm like are you. I think it's a little bowl. I think I can be really dumb play dumb. I'm smart enough to know when to play dumb but sometimes you know what I realized as I get older. The older I get the less. I know when I was your age. I thought I knew everything. I was such a cocky brick as I know this is what it is and then I get older. I'm like I don't know Shit. I know nothing which is a very good place to be because you can kind of just let go like I used to be on a conspiracy theories and the government of this shut. The fuck up does not then who cares like the curve. Isis conspiracy theory. I think the government is scaring us with. I don't think it's like those but you know what I realize. I'll probably never know right. So who cares? He can do anything about anyways. Exactly that's why I say..

It's okay to be a little thank. You think there's it's okay to be a little stable and like have a grasp on everything I just like being around people. I think normal people scare the shit out of me. It's like the guy who goes to work in a suit every day and goes to church on Sunday addresses like workshops irving those are the fucking ones who are doing weird shit behind closed doors. I'd rather be around Weirdos that are you know. I don't know outwardly. Weird yeah that makes sense. No I totally do. I telling me because I just feel like with you. I just feel like people.

I don't know I feel like I'm not that scared. Maybe I should thank you okay. You're young and you're healthy and you're not gonNA get sick. GotTa tell yourself well. I'm trying to tour tour too. I did three tours and so this is my fourth one and I don't want to cancel because I want to meet people like you know it's just again by the time this airs. The world might be over where it's all going to be one who knows but right now like as we're recording this like anytime you turn on any news or anything. It's everyone's kind of freaking out and you see everyone walking around the masks on which I hear doesn't stop you from getting it. It's all like germs. It's weird. It's weird it definitely says like what the fuck is worse than it was with the like. I don't know if you remember bird flu or SARS or a remember that one was already seems worse than that but anyway let's I know people are scared of that but at the same time people literally just like random people's asses and I was like that's like more of a disease. Yeah well eating random people's asses I would imagine would be a corona spreader coronas spoil proctology. Yesterday he didn't elbow bump and then he was like up on athlon. I was just like what is the point. You're like my proxy. It wasn't like a random person but like it was weird. 'cause he didn't want to take my hand he literally. I was like to be serious. And then he was like all up in there. I was like well. Saad odd thing but I just did proctology. Just recently. I went in there to get my butthole checked. And how was that I love? I love stuff like this. We'll talk about it to get my butthole checked because I just wanted to know if I was like as a I. I went in there to get the old like checkup right and for those watching. That don't know you might not know when you go into. The doctor puts like a little thing is being a goes up your butthole. Make sure you're good so we did that to me and he goes. You know you're in here about ten years too early like well. What do you mean he goes? Usually a man comes in for his prostate checkup. You know around fifty and I was like I guess. I'm just I'm Jewish so I worry a lot. I think I was just extra like wanted to know. And he's like you're fine and I had the trauma of some dude shoving his finger at my book is my first time. A man put his finger in my but hold on it. Try Okay. We could talk about this because I'm not a whole guy I don't want there's something about it. Like a couple of girls have tried before they put it in there to kind of see and I tighten up. Yeah I need to relax relax relax. That's my metaphor of life is to wound up maybe a little more butthole up there. Because I'm I'm too wound up. That's always true. The people who'd never have done anal stuff is always the ones that are so tight and it's ironic that that's called being anal. I think they say that. Like Gay dudes have the least colon cancer. Because they're happy because they have all the action going on in the area. I think the doctor told me that he's like yeah gay gay guys and women use toys on their butthole or whatever our way less likely to have anything go wrong and there because the blood flows to it and all that stuff and douching in. Dushanbe Horror Regina. Both Oh you could. Dushanbe don't want shit on it. That's what you think. What about bleaching? That's what I've been getting done laser and the because I started only fans like a couple months ago so everyone wants like butthole stuff and I never was really into balls and I was like you know what. Let me just get this bleaching laser showing it up close you know what I mean but yeah I guess that's like it doesn't hurt it. I don't know great for it. But it doesn't hurt so bleaching it so does that. Just sterilize it or does that make it. So what does it just to make it pretty? Oh for me. I mean like the sink. I didn't know I thought it was to be see. I don't I'm not educated on the butthole where to God. I thought it was for cleaning it to stay sterile. Nine to look whiter. You go like clorox and I feel so dumb. That kind of leading is not good for it. I feel like you might die. Or what do they use? They use Clark's to color. Bleach like to do the study. Okay gene okay. I don't know that's a whole other thing. I'm here to learn now. Okay Yeah I love kind of stuff. I'm interested in and I always think that 'cause I'm never was like an anal person guys like it and your prostate. I just learned the other day literally from I guess. The other day he told me like what prostate was. I didn't know. But that is what hits your. Gps buys the prostate for men. So got a funny story. My buddy I won't say who he can't no one would know who he is a friend of mine. I just don't WANNA put him on blast. He he went to the doctor to get as he had like a urinary tract infection so he goes to the doctor and the doctor shoved his finger up his ass and made a left hand turn and he just came everywhere. My friend he said. That's where the male g spot is. He didn't know this so he said afterwards he had to come in like a petri dish to get sampled for an STD's or whatever and then afterwards he's like doc. Why didn't you just have masturbate into the thing? Why did you have to shove you and he goes? I forget the reason why but he was like traumatized because this doctor with fat fingers went. Boom rail made a left of what he goes. The G spot was up and I think I can't remember you said it was to the right or the left and he goes dude. Everything just dumped out like it was a trigger like it just got triggered kick. Good way I feel bad but that's well that's interesting. What's he trying to make them? Come though or he wasn't he was he needed to sample his semen for something so then afterwards he was like what could have just masturbated. Doc You need to ramp up my ass but now I know where the g spot is. Yeah it's different for different people actually going to circle it because you don't really know it's like girls. It's not all in one spot fingernails. You can't do that to hurt somebody what to a man angles. I mean that's a whole other thing I've done it. Yeah nails actually kind of add to it. 'cause it's a little bit of pain that's sharp. I wouldn't do it to you if you're a novice. I'm a novice. I'm scared of the sharpening of my ball. I this is so funny. Because we're so wholesome and clean so it's like where even like data talk about this. I was like Oh. We'll stray away from SAM. 's does it look like a married. No wife no kids which is why feels like. I'm a forever young because I don't. I'm not tied down my kids or I don't have never been married at scares the Shit Heaven you know. Okay so why am thirty one forty five I get married? I don't know what is I? Don't know maybe it's living in La. Maybe it's I've just seen so many marriages fail around me that I've never done it. Maybe I should have. I don't know I know kids know marriage. I like the idea of kids and I would get married but it scares me because I feel like everyone that gets married is miserable. They say that but not everyone but a lot to get married. I'm like I WANNA go on. That show married at first sight. Have you seen that show? Is that the net flicks one now. It's on TLC before ninety day financing and you literally just pair you up at an at the altar is when you meet your husband and wife come on. I would do that in a heartbeat. Why I don't want to be married to a stranger. That's my options at this point so I feel like I don't know 'cause that's something I want babies and so it's like I like what four years right.

Everybody appointed the one loss, and you know, like Miami killed him. That's not true go back and look at those stats they gave up three hundred and three yards. I think really that's it. So they were wanting to play the dolphin so bad in that Super Bowl because they were gonna they were gonna tear them. You know what? So I think that was what I remember. It was great. We used to always, you know, we'd be a in a we'd have our little drink on and all that kind of stuff watching all those games, and and then we'd be cranking tunes and all that stuff. Another one by Saddam's, we play it after every game. And then I remember when they beat on a Monday night. That the neighbors downstairs played another. I went down there. And and somebody got dusted, and it wasn't me. I should've loser van I should have prefaced. The question by saying your dad buddy was the legendarily the defensive coordinator on that team. And they carried him off the field as they did. And then of course, the following year. He was the head coach of the eagles. I remember that team so vividly because I was freshman in college at Northwestern University in the Chicago area in the fall of eighty five and that was before there was direct TV. And before they were, you know, before he would have a sports bar, even and watch games anywhere you wanted. So you watched whatever was on. So I watched every game that year, and I have a long maintained in a one year timeframe that's the best team in NFL history. You just said I would pick that team to beat any other team for one year. They didn't they didn't have the prolonged success. He can't compare them to the Steelers and the forty Niners and the Packers and all of that. But for one year, I thought it was the best what ball team IRA saw. Absolutely. I totally agree with that. You got Walter Payton is running back. Jim McMahon who is very competent quarterback Willie gone at JIMBO covert should be a hall of fame. Tackle. I mean, they were they were absolutely loaded. But you know, what I thought it was just the they've everything else. Also like every team everybody wanted to watch the bears and to meet look they do the Super Bowl shuffle. They record that thing by the way, that's a real deal that they did after they got beat by the Miami Dolphins. Like, that's just how you talk about swag. And all that. Oh my God. And let's face greenie all these new rules in the league right now. Yeah. Protecting the quarterback all these type of his. Yeah. All they wanna to do is like they'll never want to see a Chicago bear type style of defense ever played again. And they knocked out ten straight quarterbacks starting quarterbacks never finished the game against him ten straight. So there was the most dominant defense team in most dominant team I've ever seen certainly I have said somewhat jokingly. That I think that team could have punted on first down all year and gone eight. I really I think it could've played no offense and one half their. That's a good point. I'll never forget, you know, being a student I use that term loosely at Oklahoma and in going down and watching you know, they played at Dallas..
