"rg" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"Sports Illustrated's Chris mannix and Howard back. It's a whole new level for you and me, Chris. This relationship. Like and subscribe for the best weekly NBA content these two are capable of. What does that mean? It could be the best duo ever. I don't see how you can beat that. Here they are. Chris mannix and Howard back. Now pleased to be joined by the man who separates all NBA players into tears, which are not rankings. They're just tears, folks. But even in tears, they are still designed to insult your favorite player in your favorite team because he's just mean that way. Seth parno. How are you, sir? How's it going? Howard, thanks for having me. I hate your team, no matter who it is and I hate them all equally. That's the point of the tears really, is that no matter what tier you're in, somehow you've been insulted. You've been slighted all tears all rankings are just made to insult and annoy people. That's why they exist. Also to get you to keep clicking, frankly. Commerce has to commerce. Indeed. I should note before we get to deep into this. Seth and I are in the back half of a home and home here, which means you can also hear me yammering on Seth's podcast Cullen shots on the call in app. It's very confusing to have the call in shots of the Colin app, but it's also on Spotify and Apple podcasts and all the other places where you get podcasts. So go look for that as well. We talk a lot of Lakers and this season and broadly parody some other things. It was a fun conversation. People should go check that out too. So back to your tears for a minute. We're going to get into some overreaction theater here with on day three of the NBA season. But before we do, so you've done the tears for the athletic a few years running now. Year three? This past summer was year three, yeah. Okay. Based solely on that and the solely unscientific gauge of social media, who are the perpetual perennial, most aggrieved fan bases either by city or player. Who is like, who is screaming at you the most about why you have been mean to their team or player? I mean, it's consistently been Knicks fans. There's a player type that I'm up front that I am, you know, I think less of than probably consensus, which is the sort of high volume moderate to slightly below average efficiency score on a mediocre team. Like the star player on a bad team kind of guy. So over the years, it's been Archie Barrett Brendan groom, players of that sort of archetype that I, people think that I'm more down on relative to kind of high level role players like I gravitate more towards the Mikhail bridges, the Dorian Finney Smith. Just because I'm like, for those guys, if you're RG Barrett and you're trying to win a championship, RJ Barrett is

"And so that's the foundation of a very black city, not supporting this team. To start with. And then you go from that to all this other failure and them doing all these embarrassing things going forward and reckless things. It's hard to get behind them and not winning. You had Doug Williams, which when a Super Bowl, which I guess helped in some ways and RG three comes about and plays well. It helps in some ways, but they can't have anything sustained and nothing worth holding on to. And you don't want to be associated with it. And the in game experience stinks, like the stadium's not in Washington. The stadium is hard to get to and get out of. This is all like in the weeds of Washington sports culture, but all that matters to the fan base around here and you're right. Whoever gets it next, the sky's the limit because the place it's a very wealthy area and an important area and a team with some history that should matter. So I still don't think anything happens because they're in a club. It's a club and you know how people are with the people who are like them in the club. They rally around them and you're gonna have to get them to like literally sell him out and if the number is big enough, I think they'll do it. That's sort of how I feel too. I mean, as has fired up as I was like, let us know when he actually starts the process of selling the team. All right, the

"Over, did they still have their home? They did. They were very fortunate because most Japanese could not own property by law. But my grandfather, I think he bought his home. And his children's name and they were American born and therefore U.S. citizens. So I think the deed was in their name and then maybe when they turned 18 that they could pass it over to him. And the house had been paid for it. So they actually had unlike most families, they had a home to return to. I mean, there was a housing shortage after the war. So many Japanese Americans who returned from the camps just had no place to live, so they would live in hostiles or there were these makeshift trailer camps. It was just it was very, very difficult, but they had their home. But it had just been completely trashed. Many things have been stripped. From that house. But it was theirs. So I want you to read another paragraph from your book. And this is about wondering what caused the dementia. Was it something in the environment, something we did? And this is also written in the style that you have become known for, which is an accumulation of details that paint a larger picture. And are very, just kind of revealing in their specificity. So if you could read this paragraph for us what was it you wonder that first made her begin to forget. Was it the chemical and the hair dye that once turned her scalp bright red for two weeks? Was it something toxic in the hairspray aqua net that she used to and sometimes three times a day for more than 30 years, hold your breath, she'd say, as she pressed down on the nozzle and disappeared beneath the cloud of coal white mist. Was it the raid that she sprayed all over the kitchen counter the minute she saw an ant. Was it sporadic, genetic, a series of mini strokes, something in the drinking water, the aluminum laden antiperspirant. Too little sleep, she had been complaining about your father's snoring ever since the day they got married. Too much TV, a dearth of hobbies, hobbies, she once said to you, who has time for hobbies. Should she have eaten more blueberries, less butter, red more books, red even one book, you don't remember ever seeing her read a single book, although there was always piled high on her nightstand beside the mountain of stray socks, a stack of books she meant to read. I'm okay. You're okay. How to talk to your teenager, teach yourself French and one week. Was it the hormone replacement after menopause? The estradiol, the prayer of the high blood pressure, the medication for the high blood pressure, her undiagnosed thyroid condition. The deep and lingering depression she fell into the year after her mother died three days shy of 101. Now, what am I supposed to do? She said, was it you? Thanks for reading that.

"On the air hello. Rg maple hope. They're playing your show and the lsu football offices. 'cause i sure would hate for it. Oh to listen to coach. Kelly slots without the onside kicks business. Although after last year it probably would have been in our interest to kick onside kicks with that because every time. Yeah yeah so well maybe. Hopefully that won't be the case this year. You know. Paul your shows becoming i said it before more and more like a first year law school. Course this the best thing about christopher. He's from alabama I'm worried now because you know. I got the shot and i didn't realize that my chances of dying from way up now i thought it was a lot less. So yeah no i i Kill people people criticize me for taking his calls. But i don't know about you augie. But i always feel better about myself. Feel better about the state of louisiana. Take his call. Why didn't what. I'd i'd i refused to let you disparage the state of alabama safely because christopher lives in the state. Well this is the best thing. I think about texas joining. Because i think texas will join the bandwagon of disparaging alabama. But you know what about old matt match cocky about a man must must've forgotten the last time these two met well matt is like the. Sec is my house your the visitor and you have to sit back and wait to be served. So i love old matt's attitude but the real reason. I went to talk to you since last week. All of those interviews. And i know you did one with the commissioner and there was one before how did you assess his demeanor. Doing those interviews. Thrissur sankey sankey yeah interesting. He was very solemn. Exact word us it was like he was at a funeral and this is my take. I think he pulled off a great crew He knows it he knows the world knows it. Texas and oklahoma did seek us out. But let's face it. There was not a lot of hesitation or barriers. Put their way. And if there were. I would fault the commissioner for that but he lives in a different world and the rest of us as evidenced by washington state president and he has to take that course of sort of being Almost apologetic solemn not wanting to stern any feathers. But you know in the background. He's pop the champagne and their own. If your lawyer so there's probably has never happened to you but you know. Sometimes you're in a position where we're something very good happens to you but you also know that people around you are not affected in the same way so you don't want to act like a frat boy on on graduation night so you i'll tell you funny story It happened to me once. I don't play golf anymore. But i used to play. I was playing with this elderly gentleman who happened to be the founder of the course i was playing at. He's very well known. In fact story was told at his funeral which was attended by about two thousand people. But we're on the fifth hole and he is not always a great golfer. I mean he belongs to every club in the key in america including augusta national. And i'm a complete hacker. Okay so i. I pull out a seven iron. The ball flies. My wife is at the women. The women's tea. And i'm i'm back here with him and and his caddy. I'm carrying my own bag. Shows you disparity between the guess what the ball takes bouncing goes right in the whole now. My wife is screaming. The caddy is jumping up in the air. But you know what i'm doing you're beating policy. I was watching the ball. And i looked over. And mr so-and-so didn't say congratulations. He handed me my tea which i had failed to pick up and it was. It should have been the highlight of my golfing career which frankly would have been the only thing that ever happened. Well but instead. I was forced to be sober about it. And i think that's where greg. I'm not trying to compare my my golfing attributes to landing oklahoma texas. But sometimes you just have to play. Play that card. And in san keys case Yeah i do. I think the champagne came out. I think it came out in buckets. But he didn't want anybody else to know he's happy. I think he tried so hard not to be happy. It basically gave the reverse impression but I think it's funny because it is it. I'm sure if you were at another school especially in the pac ten or twelve or wherever. They call themselves these days. You do see the sec. As a corporate raider during around ray pillaging and burning down villages and. Let's face it if the shoe was on the other foot. Do you think they turned them away. So so thank sankey is now the carl icon of the modern era. Where we're up against the break More more of your phone calls no more golf stories for me. Because i have a i don't have any other We are coming back with more right after this listening to the paul. Finebaum show podcast. Hey we're back in all ye is down in new orleans.

"rg" Discussed on The JJ Redick Podcast
"They're not the only teams that have had conversations cleveland. Either so we'll see how what happens over the next week ahead of the draft but ultimately cleveland is a real interesting position here to move down if they don't want mobely a. There's a possibility that maybe they flip sex and elsewhere and then moved down and get some eggs or somebody else. So we'll see what happens here but there are teams that absolutely love. Evan moberly and they want to move up to get him. What do you think. Knicks offer would be because there was that report last week that the knicks were had major interest in possibly acquiring concepts in unsurprising to me. You know i am in love with colin sex. Then i still have all of my sex than stock. He would be a tom. Thibodeau favorite he would learn alongside. Derek i think i think new york fans and him on that stage with the fire he plays with like that would be a match made in heaven. I would love for context into end up top tiptoe and in a knick uniform the question is what is the return. I don't know the value of sexton is unclear because he's like a lot of people like him a lot. A lot of people aren't so high on him. And with the knicks from them. They wanna land a star here. I mean they wanna get a damian lillard they wanna get bradley beal. That's the preference no guarantees. You'd be able to do that but call sexton would feel like settling to me if you're next fan. But then again like he is a really good player. He's really really young and he fits the time line of rg barrett and mitchell robinson. All these young guys on that roster so you know sometimes you can push things too quickly if you're angling for star instead of the younger guy who can eventually become a fixture of your a championship team. Potentially you know. I think it's stupid. That cleveland trying to try to move him or going to move him We've talked about this so many times. Kevin you are nowhere near what you are going to be if we judge you within three years you know and i've thought about this so much regarding the yana stuff that we talked about the other night. Which was if you would've looked in year in year one. He's six point eight points and four rebounds in year two. He's twelve point. Seven points and six point seven rebounds in year three. He's a seventeen and seven guy right and so. Did you foresee a circumstance. Did anyone at that time were we. You have your determination on what the guy is going to be. And i know we live in a microwave society now but we just determine and i'm not saying this just to endorse call text and i'm just saying this with anybody..

"rg" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"We were kinda worried at caches. Marsh and quincy rochet as the primary backups at outside linebacker. But now melvin ingram. Is there in full with alex. Alex smith and t. j. watt. So really it is a beautiful day. The steelers defense got better and this team took a step in the right direction. I am thrilled. I am happy and who knows. Maybe there's some more moves to be made before we get to week one but anyway getting to the real topic of today's show the pittsburgh steelers being the most over hated team in the nfl. It's it's one of those things that have been recurring all off season long Just just the voices from the national media even the local media you you hear this day in day out. The pittsburgh steelers our team that sh- supposedly is one. That's about to fall off a cliff but some who covers this team on a pretty regular basis. Daily articles Couple podcasts a week. Someone who's reading all the rumors learning about these players seeing how everyone's health is doing. It doesn't really seem like this is a team that is about to fall off a cliff. This is a team. That's built to win here now and trying to take home a championship in the twilight of the ben rothlisberger era but still it is this constant bashing from the pf fs of the world or really you just name it any sports talk show. The last couple months is basically just been writing off the pittsburgh steelers some non factor and that just is not fair. This is a team that looks to be in great shape heading into the twenty twenty one season the fact that all these outlets are trying to put a pin on pin in. The steelers is pretty interesting to me. Because i think it goes beyond just a that kind of content. Kind of getting getting your cliques. Getting those numbers up. Of course you put the steelers anything especially negative and it's like throwing gasoline on a fire. Those numbers are going to take off. But i genuinely think a lot of these. A lot of these national media types want to just say the pittsburgh steelers are bad team. And i am not seeing it i am truthfully someone who can look at a picture without any rose colored all in this case black and gold tinted glasses on. If i look at as just a by standard looking at this team i still think there are really solid football team especially if they stay healthy but for whatever reason people want to say. This is a bad football team and i really just just makes me laugh in all honesty because it just does not stop at all. It's just been the constant bashing this entire offseason and most of it has been directed towards ben rothlisberger and the offensive line starting with the offensive line though for as much criticism as that unit gets the steelers completely revamped that unit gone or marquees penalty dave decastro and alejandro villanueva. The old guard is no longer there. The steelers completely retooled the unit yet. People want to bash this team saying that. It's gone worse. how can you say that one. This is a brand new squad rolling out on the field. Left tackles a brand new guy in two weeks before he was a right tackle before left. Guard is kevin dotson who steals viewed as a backup all of last season despite being the best guy in the field when he was in the line of due to injury issues. It's matt filer and others at center kindergarten green. I guess is probably the biggest question mark but he is an athletic stuff and someone that you take over the job probably in training camp then it right guard trae turner who i if he's healthy like he's claiming he is will be a significant upgrade on injured david castro who all likelihood probably doesn't even play in twenty twenty one at all and it's probably mulling retirement for my if we can take all reports at face value and then at right tackle zach banner who looked pretty good in a half of football last year before he tours. Acl this is a brand new offensive. Line trash it as much as you want but saying it's gotten worse or whatever from last year that simply isn't fair because they've completely retooled his group are. They're these big time flashing names. Not yet i think kevin dotson could kind of develop into that if trae turner is as good as he was before a in. La yeah he could be an absolute stud to and again. We don't know what kendrick green is. The tackles are all right. I'm not saying they're the worst tackle tandem in the nfl. Though that's that's the last thing i'm gonna do but yet again the over hated pittsburgh steelers offensive line is getting buried and we haven't seen them play. It is not a fair thing for so many of these outlets to continuously be doing is just tearing them down saying how bad it's going to be. Yeah there's a ton of question marks. I agree with you. There's a ton of question marks. But right now i think it's fairly simple to look that unit be like well on paper with a new scheme new offense aggressive mindset and aggressive blockers at the very least they should be a good team running the football because those guys get after it in the run game. They're downhill guys that you're gonna push around. Perhaps ben might have to take a couple more hits this year but even in that case. We do not know how they're going to work. As a cohesive passing unit yet and to say this is the worst offense align and football which in some rankings that have been coming out the last couple of weeks is exactly where the steelers relying ranks really is not fair. I think this unit has a very very good chance of being improved from what it was last year but continuously the steelers are being slagged. I think that unit will definitely prove people. Wrong and they'll be something exciting to watch especially. Rg harris who i guess would be the The flagbearer when it comes to success of the offensive line if he goes off and hasn't outstanding rookie season as a running back. I think that's a huge testament to the offensive line as well as the talent of najji harris but so many people want to say. Oh he's just going to struggle. 'cause the offense line socks if he doesn't and there you go you can just point to those numbers and and it's one of those things you can kind of look out for to kind of gauge some of the success success of the offensive line as well as the sack numbers have been rothlisberger and how long he's able to hang out in the pocket which could be better brand new scheme brand new coach brand new guys on the offense line. Slagging them really. I think we're getting a little too carried away with that And it could bite some people in the rear end and get them featured on old takes exposed for having a prematurely bad football takes all sports takes in general but That's something i think. People are playing with a little bit of fire on another guy. Of course that is being overheated. Is benjamin todd rothlisburger. The senior pivot for the pittsburgh steelers. Yes the steeler season it tailed off and cooled off bay area very.

"He is not done that even kind of backtracked from it, I guess the other day a little bit but but yeah it's it's it's one of those fun ones. You know, one way that maybe I don't know if it's more, realistic, less realistic, but also get a little bit of news that the Knicks would be interested again. All twenty-nine teams will be interested, but the Knicks report also came with a little bit of reporting that RG Barrett's not considered to be Untouchable if they can get a superstar vire trade. And I think that that becomes, you know, one of those newsworthy items that maybe gets lost in the You know, Nick's are interested in Damian Lillard. If he becomes available headline that you know they would consider moving on from Barrett who I thought showed real growth this past season. You know. It wouldn't surprise me if the Knicks did something extraordinary. This offseason. I mean something fairly dramatic, right? I mean, maybe it's not trading for Damian Lillard. Obviously there's a lot of teams that would love to do that, but just, they gotta Taste of getting back in the playoffs and now I'm sure there's a form or they want to get ready to make a real Run next season. And if there is a star out there, they're going to go for it at the same time, though, I'm kind of like holding my breath for the Knicks, and hoping that what we saw last season does not become the outlier where they had done so many Nick. See things in the past where they tried to just jump start things with veteran players, and it just never really worked out for them. They kept going on injured, former stars, and it just didn't work and now they made a bunch of really smart moves. I'd hate to see them, throw that all away from the wrong guy. Now, I'm not saying that's Damian Lillard, I don't think that's the case with him at all, but I hope they do. Get 200 too crazy to where they throw caution to the wind and set themselves back accidentally. Yeah one or two things would happen with the old mix. It would have been. We're going to go for Damian Lillard but instead we gave up way more than we should have for CJ McCollum and nothing against CJ McCollum. He's just not Damian Lillard or they would have said you know, we're not making that trade, but we're going to do is we're going to take our fifty million in cap space, we're splitting it right down the middle, on DeMar, DeRozan and Kyle Lowry. Yeah, we're going to reunite them in New York. And as fun as a story, that would be..

I interviewed first round about covid and getting getting pretty bad like they did not talk about it as though it was like no big deal like a flu like i mean Kaya has really really struggled to get her physicality back cost said that she was basically couch writing the couch for a while. Because she couldn't she couldn't even walk around she couldn't Was getting winded and stuff like that so bouncing back from all of that and kind of bought a different drama. She moved out And her mom's her coach and so she needed to separate as coach versus momma's mom And if you know costumes whole back story kind of like with her mom and how like. It's a very emo back story of lake. She basically started playing tennis because her mom was a tennis coach. It was the only way that she could spend time with her mom.

Yeah yeah she. I was talking to somebody about her today because they had just kind of listened to her age. She did that too. Yes from like whatever fifteen fifteen sixteen years old.

"It's it's it's a it's a it's a steep drop in the scroll on my on my on my page and i'm looking at here but one of the finalists. According user saying earlier you have. Feelings are intuition Sensitive destroy how to make sense of of this news here. I mean yes okay. I understand everything that you've just said but at the same time. Since who comes in. Form having beaten serena garcia blah blah with the only player to take a set off coca golf in parma. Like she's informed. Christina's had a great clay season Made the final last weekend. We're not pardon what strasbourg And then One istanbul i guess. She's informed kazakh. A two titles this year former quarter-finalists here on social former finalists. And we know how good marquette is and how talented she is. She's just not consistent but you also know that she like on any given day can play great tennis and it's been a very very soft. A dropped her outside of kepi shroud round but she ended up bailing third and then but dosa coach has just call cousin harmony varies. You're doing there. And i don't love it but keep going. And then with the dosa she was the name player for me. At the start of this it was it was between her and cooder metaverse to get through into the semis out of this out of quarter and that remains a round of sixteen against joe. Chevelle if that's unusual but dasa. I find that to be a very intriguing match salt. I think that's really really interesting. But you know so yes i understand. You know there's a whole section here with no seeds. A lot of players have gone out. But it's these are informed players for the most part You know even sadan six. She made the final in bogota to to start the season. So these are you know Generally speaking of the players who have played well again why i think the metropole losses is probably the only one. That's really stunning to me. So far the players who have played in the clay season a right there and in the mix. So they're gonna they're gonna do get out in that section. But i i don't know man i just think but does has got a full head of seen fifteen in two best win percentage on tour on clay. Yeah i don't know. I don't know i don't i don't It's gonna take a lot to stop her. I think she's she's my sort of is my hunch would be to go on this for showers because she has momentum fund russia the beth legit fourth round and then i never went is of got to be a favorite against unless unless we're really becoming into some sort of kasatkina renaissance. We see her continuing rate scores. Stay she'd be benches to to which is very comprehensive and then if she gets a good win over johnson yaacob after beating her. Stay in this hypothetical then. Yeah i could see her. She's got more experienced in the second earn in slams and and these players i mean fossils were made that one run by done it regularly. So yeah i think the interest. It's not like i'm not saying it's bad i'm just saying it's like a notably different flavor dramatic hundred percent a hundred percent. But but yeah it's it's it's an interesting one and and look out for donsak. Honestly i think that she's she's played really really well and i was curious. The people would know her that well as a three time. Junior national Snowboarding champion from slovenia. Very that's a big one And that's how she came to play. Tennis was that she was snowboarding and shoes at a snowboard skiing camp and in the summertime. Obviously you can't be so boarding and skiing but they had tennis lessons so she started playing tennis and decide to play that. Ted decide between tennis and snowboarding and decided on tennis. Why might you ask well. We asked her the exact same thing and she said because it was too cold he said i was just like i hate the cold. I was always cold. So i played tennis like random. Cool but yeah but otherwise. Yes she was a really really good snowboarder. So there's all these kind of like puns you can have with the clay the sliding and the snowboarding and all that sort of stuff do you know. What kind of snowboarding. She did perchance i. Don't i have not asked that question I don't know if she just like if she was like a ham or a question she she she strikes me as as a as a slow lady not a half. Pipe lady It'd be cool if she did the border cross a bunch of likes lavinia children just like barreling down trying to each other going over jumps i. It doesn't strike me as border-crosser she strikes me as a slope style and a gal but slovenia's not far from northeast. Italy were senators from and so sort of a love to the Cross-disciplinary ah kids coming through the draw. Those are the draws man settlements. Thank you for being on here on day. five any any other sort of you know things enjoyed. During the ceremony there miscellany unit mentioned. Has been been nice here. We go to disrupt relatively manually so probably covered a lot of bases but on average anything worth mentioning before we miss him. No i've know it was it was. I mean some of the feel good stories. Just kind of like seeing carla back seeing danielle You know play so well. A cost york after having a really really glossed over actually because that was tough scene. Garvey hurt in that match that was lose garbage section. And this is the thing that we talked about again. Going back to the beginning of the timing that the luck involved in in getting you know because we know how good garb as we know how she can obviously win this events But just struggling with injuries the minute that the the season.

"This is bad enough. That ashes talking about it openly and she said straight up. She's like it's gonna be a tough week you know. And so and it was. And that's what looked like they pulled out a double. She and jen brady. So yeah it just. It wasn't surprising at all but it was. It was very ash though that her two retirements you know these. Are you know the one that came against cocoa. She was leading in the score and she pulled the ripcord for her arm. And then this one she got to two and then pulled the ripcord. There's like this weird. Ozzy like ash thing of kind of like i just want to be clear. Even though she was down set obviously to limit. But like. I'm not pulling it. Because i don't think i can win because i'm losing. It's yeah exactly. It's because i'm not well. And i knew i know you know. And she said that it got to the point where it was unsafe. That was the word that she kept. Using so i just feel i just feel really really really bad for ashen a lot of today. I've been thinking about a lot. You know we talk about talent. We talk about all these things that make up grand champions and great players and things like that and so much of it is timing and luck and when we talk about and we talked about this so much. When we talk about serena and twenty and getting twenty three already like. It's not just about like to do that like it's an incredible feat because it's not just about your the best tennis player on on the planet for two weeks like so many things have to go right. You have to knock it injured you have to like everything has to align for seven matches and so for ash to play as well as she had during the clay season. Come in informed healthy you know. She was all fine until this until the weekend before the tournament. That's gotta hurt and then to compound. The hurt is the fact that you know if you know ash. Everyday of clay is a closer to the grass season dots. Her that's her. Joy is the grass season which is already been shortened by a week and now she has to race to try and get better in an injury. That is not something she's ever had before she said. This is not something i'm familiar with. We don't really know what this is. So yeah if even if that means that. She can't play as many grasp tournaments as she wants. That's a bummer. For ash lake. And hopefully it doesn't it doesn't extend to having to miss wimbledon but Yeah it's just it for somebody who did it all right. You couldn't have asked for more from her. The you know the last three months It's it's heartbreaking result for no. I saw people saying both sides of nonsense. Like oh she overplayed like this year. She played too many tournaments. And now that we've no reason to think that's the reason. And so when i was like so what happens if a long layoff and take a year off my also wrong because she's been playing consistently for like a year now. If you if you want to like the strapping australia was that maybe you can go with that. But this this far into the season absolutely and also. I like when we talk about her schedule lake. What are we saying that she shouldn't have played you know. She lost second round even charleston. I mean she lost second round. Charleston may be normal season. She doesn't play charleston right. you go to miami. Maybe she flies home. And then you know goes straight into straight into madrid rome. Yeah there's no any wells this year. She's been hearing all of the year. Not a real number one. Naomi should have been no. There's a lot of things going on with it. And plus like what is she going to do. She can't go back to australia. What she's just can sit around and yeah. She played slightly. Elective tournaments if you want to even call them that in in charleston and but like those are big tournaments with pristine fields you know procedures fields maybe pristine if he wanted to be too and Yeah so anyway. I don't think there's no indication at all the added anything bad luck. This was just her and talks for her because we all know how much she wants us and and again seeing her like you said the visible emotion from her you know in in a week. It's been about reading emotion like it's been. It was pretty clear to see how out of character and how rattle she was by this. Which is tough to see some writing. The writing was on the wall for sure. Mandolin advances to the third round. Then we should play on. Shipper had really good first time went against putin silva five and two and one of the circle bowl for trimesters for sure and then winner of the net. Sheberghan winner to americans Both trending up at this year at least picture gen brady and cook with off. Tom brady having a really good win. Real one of the tougher tougher. Second rounds for sure against fiona ferro and golf beating greenwich and wong chung to get to this point any thoughts on what you've heard from this match between Brady and golf kind of feels like a little bit. I mean i think whoever wins at metro. Probably the favorite going into the fourth round against lameta shebir. Yeah no i. I mean very impressed with jan brady Just recently she split with with michael moore. She's working with brad stein. Who coaches tommy. Paul as well so not really knowing what to expect from her going into this. And i have to tip my cap to to alex mcpherson. Who brought this up In our company. Today of just kind of like jim brady the queen of coming out of like kind of tough circumstances and playing pretty well. You know hard lockdown in australia good point makes the final and here you know not coming in with very much confidence and you know splitting with the coach after rome. This hasn't really been that that long that she had the split she practice with brad once before her first round match so it wasn't like you know she's kind of going in blind and gets the win over savasta in the first round. That's not an easy first round match and then and then yeah. I've really had to battle fiona ferro and the french crowd it was. It was a fun atmosphere out there on some too so that was fun but to get that win so lots to like jim brady. She comes in no expectations. You know all that and and cocos playing great. I mean there's there's a very very strong argument that she's the favorite to make the semi gummy coming out of this top quarter now that that party is out and even after bharti's first round win that she scraped through pass para. I mean goff kind of became the one for me to watch now. That was before we saw kind of sloan. Really lock in which we'll talk about. I'm sure and a little bit. And obviously when she says in their selena mugabe it's a tough section But but i've just been really impressed with coco throughout the entire clay season. I think she's played really really well. She's managing things well. Her serve is online top. One tough tough tough one to call. But i like. I like how coco's approaching matches right now. I think all of this top quarter tipped to call with was scooter down to the second section eighth and this goes to death and i'm sure they will keep talking about this because for as much as you know there was all this talk about this the first time. The top two seeds at roland garros out before the third round. I'm like that's an illusory stat. Neither of them completed a match to beat to exit like so and extenuating circumstances on this one guys so you know but as much as there's that covid out and rescue a lot a lot of sees top players but then when i sit down and actually look at what we have certainly shattered. We'll get to the bottom quarter. We'll talk about the bottom quarter. But even then i'll make my argument but but yeah it's it's not as shattered as one would expect. Is this next section mentioned. You mentioned slow. Let's start with sloan. Sloan goes out place unbelievably high quality mattress match. Like i did not know what his preference. Carla are coming. Back from beating hodgkin's lymphoma honestly. I thought it was kinda like just happy to be here kind of match and should go get a gentleman's two and three out there with sloan and today but she played really well she. She was really fit really strong. The backhand was flowing for being her first competitive match. Like i was super impressed. And she came close to in metros then two points of winning it had a thirty love double-faulted with when she was two points away then gave slot a little bit of of life that she took advantage of and sloan was great to sloan. Look super fit and like the quality. In both of sloan's first two matches. And i wrote about sloan for the times since we saw more hundred on her than otherwise would be in the rough year..

I send us on the show in the intro to it but i definitely played a record against of the two times. That method beat him. Was like third-set tie-break adjacent longtime matches and then and then okocha beat medvedev in saint petersburg last year indoors. So i knew that. I know i feel you absolutely. Think broken clock right every once in a while. Kind of breaking the duck at the french open or as they say in france you know pro kennard or something like that it would be. I think once these done that. I feel like this sort of french. Open ghosts or gone from. It's like when zhang schwab on. They wanna greenwich the quarters that tournament so feel like his. His competence got to be good. The rest of the section was kind of nuts too because christian garin saved two match points. I think in the third set against mcdonald clinton won on return or one on. Mcdonald's serve one eight six in the fifth. They kicked the fans out of the stadium at nine o'clock and they were all cheering still through the fence. Like not having it was ten and then So that was that was rough for for to And they markers. Iran was down in the first round down five one or one five on his serve.

You're saying one of the match points like dmitrov had an open for like kind of an open put a forehand and like missed it by an edge and like the match could have been very over and then to me trust having back issues and see stop and he who lost the next nine games in a row and then retired dump three in the in the fourth such as brutal match gear.

At big surprise biggest surprise in the sector for me is philipp. Kohlschreiber on pithy ranking beating. Ostlund karassev that was that was weird. That was surprising. Yeah no i. I didn't quite understand that. One lloyd harris beating a lorenzo senegal who you informed me made a master semifinal paper that wouldn't surprise me on clay in the first round in straight-sets candidate around kim nori what made the final. I think a couple of weeks ago shouldn't be going out early as is settled surprising. Yeah they're like. We didn't mention new steady beating fan and straits in the. Yeah i i just say it in terms of that that rafa quarter of. Oh this is a tough you know quarter and all these it. It is thinning out just a little bit. I mean just a little bit. I mean not that anybody was worried about senegal or anything or you know yeah karachi may be in there may be potentially but Or rube love. But but yeah it's it's thinning out a little bit to where it's it's a little less Panic stations. I think if you are a particularly sensitive nidal fan no which so. Many of them are like why. It's fine to your dollar. French open could not could not be safer. Leave them alone. Let them have their. Let them have their reading. It's okay it's okay.

Don't pull the trigger just yet even saw the guests gave vent Bottom various very suss gasquet Bottom half features. But he's still losing to henry loxton a surprise. That's that's that's not something you see coming even. He's not the best on clay. Compared to other services he's more of a hardcore grass-court kind of guy batista on typically spanish dominic. Thiem mentioned this in the first day show. He loves day one loss but he lost pablo andujar in five and then under her then lost double bonus in the next round kind of a letdown for all the big. Pablo his blow. I mean pablo's kind of like i feel like before his peak was before. Nc time. i think he was very much a forty days. Kind of forty. He was definitely a forty deuce sky. Like we explain cirque afforded forty deuce pablo persona. He just was a very nice guy. He's very handsome so he was easy to put pictures on and create mythologies around and things like that he was incredibly. He's very nice guy. Just on tour. I was just starting to be on tour Right around then and being in the press room and just talking to people who work in tennis and stuff like he's a really lovely guy So he was always kind of for the longest time like my favorite spaniard.

"Safe and reliable energy. For millions of Georgians learn Maura Georgia power dot com slash reliability. Black voices from Big Brown is a creative and ambitious project and ups chronicling the experience of 29 current and former black executives at the company. Long time journalist and UPS communications expert. April Nelson Help to spearhead the project. She joins us now with Nikki Clifton, president of Social Impact at the UPS Foundation. Welcome to City lights. Thank you so much. April. How did you first become involved with ups? Well, I was coming off of a journalism career. I'd like to call it a successful I started out in radio just like your program, and that was my favorite thing. And then I got into television had a great career a long career, actually in South Florida, as well as the Atlanta market. I worked at Fox five. I worked at CBS 46. Yes. Took a few years off from that, just figure out what I was going to do next in my life ups. Came a calling, so I took advantage of the opportunity not quite knowing what I was getting myself into. But once I figured out they were not going to require me to drive a package car, I thought, Well, I could do this. How did your background didn't journalism help you with the project? Black voices from Big Brown? That is a fantastic question. I think it was the thing that made me know that I could do it right. This whole thing started with one of the honorees featured in the book, Can Jarvis He was recognized as our first African American package car driver at the company. He was hired in 1957, and he and I have become very good friends. He's not only my friend, but my mentor, and we talk all the time and 2019. He called me up. I knew that he had been trying to write his memoirs. And he said April I need to finish this and I really need your help. Because of my journalism background. I knew that I could died him. I never written a book. But I knew I could help him figure it out. And that's where this whole thing started. Wow. How did can advance from delivering packages to becoming a ups executive can being recognized in our first African American package? Car driver? I was actually working on another project when I met him. And it was the project was about ups. Sirs who actually knew and had a relationship with our founder, Jim Casey. And he told a story about, you know, being a driver and then in his mind, it was sort of a promotion. You got a little more money, but he was delivering mail, right? He went from being a driver to delivering mail, and he had to deliver mail to Jim Casey's office one day and Jim said, Sit down. He was on the phone, but he said, Sit down, Let's talk and he had a long conversation with our founder. And very few people got a chance to talk to our founder in that way, and, ah, big is that a lot of people didn't even believe him. But it was that relationship without founder that just it deepened. And they formed a partnership sort of a mentor. Mentee like partnership, and he started advancing through the ranks, and that's how it happened. Impressive. Would you talk about the different media you used to showcase this stories of Thies 29. African American leaders at Ups. Yeah, this started out as a black history month project. We started on January of 2020. And it was supposed to be a black History month project for this year, and we said we're going to do a book, right? And Kendra versus wish was to have a book and again. It wasn't quite what he had in mind. He was gonna make it just his story. And I said to him, I said can if you might a book, it needs to be about the tree that bore the fruit. You are the tree and you have borne or if I'm saying that correctly, you bought so many fruits. There's fruit all over the ground, and those are the ups, others who have followed your path. And so once he locked around that idea, I had to figure out how to push it forward. And so I pushed it forward through the African American Prg as we were trying to find a really Marquis project something really important and substantial. For black history Month of 2021 Little did we know the black lives matter. Movement was going to happen in the middle of this project, and that's when we knew it took on a whole different meaning from there. Would you explain the acronym, the African American Business Resource Group? Ups. We have a lot of acronyms for, like almost everything. So we call our business resource groups. Just the BR. Jeez, there's the womens womens leadership development. There's the Hispanic, the RG. They call it, Chris. There the Asian B R G. We have a number of them. What does behind the scenes of black voices examine? Oh, the behind the scenes of our production. That's that's what it's sort of examined. If you're talking about the behind the scenes clips that are on the website, we shows some photographs that we took, as say, Some of our honorees were getting ready in the green room, things like that. It was sort of some things that did not quite make the book if you will, or didn't make any of the videos just so that people could really see the honorees is fun. Inhuman and to have a podcast here offering as well Yes, yes, In addition to our hard copy book, we have the E publication and then on the website, the podcast are available. Those are introduced by Jason Martin. He's one of my ups. African American PRG colleague to help to co create the project and shape it and move it along. So we allowed him to introduce each one of the interviews, the A podcast, and those can be heard on Soundcloud, Apple music and Spotify. Nikki, You are the President of social impact and the UPS Foundation. What is the UPS Foundation? What kind of work do you too Well, I just took the helm of the foundation in November and we exist the lead the company's global citizenship efforts and corporate social impact. I'm excited that this year we will celebrate 70 years of work that reflects our mission to build safer, more resilient and inclusive communities around the globe. And so we do this through centering around four core areas, health and humanitarian relief. So think about all the things that ups is doing to advance the vaccine around the world Equity and economic empowerment. Local community engagement is marshaling our brown army of more than 500,000 ups, others through volunteerism and local communities and then Planet protection, which is our environmental stewardship, and we've got a goal of planting 50 million trees by 2030. So we really think that the best way to give back to the communities where we live and where we work.

This time he was doing this in Australia. Big difference to Michael Green should win this and he does have control by Michael Porter Jr. Are we going to see him early time out from Rick Carlisle? Monte Morris has it at the point stutter step in a drive on poor Zynga's backs him up to the three point line gets back from two Michael Green, Monty. Working against poor Seaga's drives on him again. Wraparound Pass gets knocked out of Bounds last touched by Denver and that will be Dallas basketball the other way. That's a rare turnover by Montana. But he was he was screaming and RJ Hampton at the time he wanted RJ to cut nuggets have no starters on the floor. Dallas has three of them. And here comes Trey Burke Jobs it across the timeline. I left side over the heart away. Back on top to Burke Burke gets have slipped, picked by Bazinga split the defenders, and he got bailed out by the official A foul called on Denver. Yeah, the schooling of young players in this league never ceases to amaze me. You could play basketball your life when you play in the NBA. The little things you learn on the job. RJ Hamptons learning tonight. Defensive positioning is one of them right Knowing where to be at the top is Burke left side over to jail in Bronson, Blow by on composite kick out bruising Gus in the corner three pointers on the way that one's no good. Oh, it might get a hand on that. Oh, they gave it to Denver, but I think Mike got a handle. I think the other Red's gonna come in and overrule. They're gonna huddle up here. It looks like as we look at the replay right now. Yeah, that's off. Michael Porter Jr. This is gonna be Dallas ball. So we're 180 miles away. And you and I saw that call You have six eyes is the N b, a official on the floor on the ball. And you miss that call, just saying That was basketball underneath. Trey Burke Looks in him down goes to jail. And Bronson Bronson gets to the baseline and a touch foul called on to Michael Green. Here we go again. Schemes gotten physical here. I mean, things have ratcheted up in the second half. Both teams playing hard. Nuggets got to do something about these Dallas guards just making their way just easily get into the lane. Member can still gonna stop on this possession That's taken forever. Jalen Bronson has it He goes to the left hand behind the back to Brazil goes back over to Bronson. This is their fourth crack on the same possession. Can't away is stolen by Porter. And he said in the head by for single, They're gonna call a foul on Michael Porter Jr there. All right Now you gotta get the challenge involved here. All right, team. Let's take a look at this. But tell me what you see. Okay, A steal by Porter Jr. And then retain that's Oh, I almost cost right there. How do you challenge it? Crack on the same possession for Dallas Hardaway has it on the high left side. He goes on a blow bypass. Green baseline jumper. No good again. Tip won't go either Rebound hounded you, Michael Green. What defense by Denver composite has it at the point picks up his trouble, throws it down mode of green turnaround hook shot. He got fouled, and he'll go to the free throw line did not get to win this game. I'm gonna look back at those five.
On Forbes Esports Orgs Valuations and Reactions from Around the Industry
"Year for Julissa list of the 10 most valuable e Sports organizations, they attach a massive nine-figure some to 10 works as well as some added information and every year, it causes controversy home. Mostly because of how the numbers are sourced basically Christina submitted the author of the article talks to a bunch of investors and team owners and they provide numbers while there is some viewing of these numbers with a critical lens not nearly took his done to outright trust the numbers as a true valuation first. Let's look at what the list said then some of the issues that came with it TSM is on top of the list with the valuation of 410 million dollars wage.

It is not Christine as fault, but the orgs themselves for these valuations in addition Esports orgs valuations are inflated as wolf says these orders are being valued at ten to twelve times revenue for every month besides Enthusiast gaming on this list. That's much higher than a normal valuation. Here's what Adam Fitch now business content lead for dexterity do had to say quote. It's only LinkedIn grifters and phony Executives. You share Forbes Esports pieces until the valuations come around each year. So why are people putting stock in this list now as it forms as credible and respected in our industry any other time it's harsh but he's not wrong. You don't see a ton of forums articles shared around the year. It's mostly this one that people turn to and it's not just journalists critiquing this list either because the data comes from investor conversations and team owners the people in charge of teams who don't inflate their valuations get left off the list one extremely notable Omission. This year was Envy gaming Adam Rimer the new CEO of Envy gaming as of last summer. This on his LinkedIn quote. This Forbes analysis is utter garbage to be clear. This is not a criticism of the organizations mentioned all of whom deserve to be there. I have friends at all of them and have a great respect for what they're doing across the board, but in full transparency, this is a complete drive by cursory analysis, which is led me to question the entire valuation slash editorial capability of four years as a former valuation consultant determining Equity value for private companies is by definition a huge challenge one, which is made even more difficult without considering all facets of the company estimated revenues.

Let's Encrypt's Cross-Signed Root Expires Next Year
"Something interesting has happened with. Let's encrypt on friday. They blog d- standing on our own two feet and the issue. That's come up is so interesting on fundamental that i decided to share what they've said With some inline editorializing of course About that you know the situation. They find themselves in so so they wrote what a new certificate authority comes on. the scene. Which i'll note does not happen very often. They said it faces a conundrum. In order to be useful to people it needs its roots certificate to be trusted by a wide variety of operating systems and browsers however it can take years for the oh s.'s and browsers to accept the new root certificate and even longer for people to upgrade their devices to the newer versions that include that change the common solution. A new ca will often ask an existing trusted certificate authority for a cross signature to quickly get it into being trusted by lots of devices. You know we talked about this in the beginning of of let's encrypt And we looked at their the certificate that they were producing was cross. Signed by ident- trust. I think it was anyway. So they said five years ago when let's encrypt launched. That's exactly what we did. We got a cross saito. Yeah the across signature from identity. Just their dst route x three have been around for long time and all the major software platforms trusted. It already windows. Fire fox mac. Os android irs and a variety of distributions. That cross signature allowed us. They wrote to start issuing certificates away and have them be used by a lot of people. Without ident- trust let's encrypt may have never happened. And we are grateful to them for their partnership. Meanwhile we issued our own root certificate. I s r g route x one and applied for it to be trusted by the major software platforms now. Those software platforms have trusted our root certificate. Meaning the let's encrypt root certificate for years and the s. t. route x three routes or ticket that we relied on to get us off. The ground is going to expire on september. First twenty twenty one. they said. Fortunately we're ready to stand on our own and rely solely on our own root certificate. However they wrote this does introduce some compatibility woes some software that has not been updated since two thousand and sixteen. They said approximately when our route was accepted to many root programs still doesn't trust our root certificate. Is rg route.

Metaflow: Netflix Machine Learning Platform with Savin Goyal
"Brings us to aws flicks took the at the time unconventional decision to go all in on aws many years ago at this point, and that's treated. Netflix's really well, because it's almost, it's almost like. The the whole idea around blessed programming languages where you make a strong decision within an organization to restrict the number of programming languages with an organization and it it that constraint ends up helping the organization make decisions more quickly and allow for engineering mobility and so on. This is the case. This has been the case with aws when when Netflix? Strongly moved onto aws and continue to do that. That extends to medfly show. A better flow is an open source framework, but it has a tight coupling with aws. So why is the tight coupling to aws useful for machine learning framework? Sue I won't say that. We are tightly coupled to eight of us. So when leave it open sourcing MEDOFF. No at that point in time, because we had a good amount of operational expertise with aws, we chose indicating the details are ready for this cloud integration, but the architecture of Meta flow. Is Very much vendor agnostic, so the already have people who have ported Netflix will on top of Google cloud for example. So see I wanNA. Make sure that at the end of the day. The end user are data scientists decent to worry about any of the concerns that are introduced by using it us, Rg are. Is You're in the? Cloud windows to them. They're just writing code in an idiomatic language whether it's Biton are are, and the metaphor takes care of actually understanding the code and orchestrating that on top of the AWS RG CPU or any of the other. Providers. So so yet, so that's that's a strategy that we have been falling. We started views because that's what the US internally ethnic flex. That's what we have worst amount of experience and expertise in, but. There are people who have made it. Look at JCP, and going forward as well. It's something that's on our road, not to have a more and more indications. Appointed comparison to Meta flow might be airflow the distributed workflow scheduling system that's often used for data engineering jobs. How does medfly compare to airflow? So air is what you would come as production creates getting her in the sense that you have your email pipeline, and now you want your pipeline to run autonomously, say and all. At the stroke of Midnight Day are win some. Deed is available. That pipeline should be triggered so once once you've. Created your etl pipeline, and you're happy with how it's running at that point in time it makes sense to ported to an ear flu, or see it functions Louici for example. But. What is severely lacking in some of these two? Is the local expedients to on my laptop. I WANNA. Make sure that my workflow runs both Akil, and then I should be able to deploy it and that sort of what we can. Refer to as a traditional using this workflow on top of. Airflow audited list of functions so now met up. You has this notion of a dag and bundles in a local scheduler so menu writing your Code Medoff on your laptop at that point in time, medoff Lewis local killer may be responsible for executing your code, executing the nodes of the DAG, and you can mix and match. You can certainly talk the Dag run on your laptop to notice run. Run on the cloud with specific resources that you have already specified, and then once you're happy with the injury execution off your workflow than at that point in time, metaphor allows you to compile your dad into a specification that one of these production understand so as a matter of fact in early July, we are going to release our integration, but it of just approaches, which is production skater. Available in eight of us and you can take your workflow and this one commingling argument you can deploy on of aws. Step functions now step functions like some of the. Nice things about it is, it's a highly available Dag Scheduler, and it allows Florida running workflows, which can span a year as will end. The operation footprint is really monitoring, so you get like really nice quantities when Saginaw you're running on one of these stretching rates, lives and internally at net flicks. We chose to build one. Ourselves Sets Meson and Dorado. Bunch of talks online on specific infrastructure as well as the architecture needs on that front. and. Our internal users what they do is they invite Medoff workflow in this bag, and then just one single come online argument. They're able to export that as a means on woke view and this me, saen executor's slash schooler has a good amount of fetuses it around see how do unloading how to trigger events and other wilco finish resume. Your will close. You can sit a variety of triggers based on time the on what so you get like. All those nice features it when you're on top of one of these production rates get loose, and then you also get all the lineage tracking, and the deduc would and environments not shutting using Medicare. And do our end. Users now don't really have to consume themselves with a standing the programming model that means on provides our understanding the program model that Ilias Conscience provides. They just ride their coordinate in then metaphor takes care of interfacing in your of these productions units so now coming back to the question that you had around comparing metal fluid airflow I would say that these are ready to talking to products, and they're not competing against one another on the country they are. Supposed to work well with one another, so the situation would be back. You use metaphor your local prototyping, and once you're happy with the results then at that point in tiny convincingly just export of workflow onto their.
Artist Bruce Sulzberg on painting Rafael Nadal
"Welcome to the tennis dot. Com Pot guest. I'm one of your host. Nina Pantic joined in this episode by my co host. Irena Falconi! Hey, guys! How's it going? And we have a very interesting episode of everyone today we are with the owner artists of cells media. Fine Arts Bruce Cells Bruce Welcome thank you, thank you so much for having me. Bruce? Do you have a very interesting story? I don't think a lot of people know it has to do with Ross doll. You don't usually have artists on our show, so that's why this is very unique and special you wanNA. Tell everyone story when it comes to tennis. Even if you're not a player or coach or tournament organizer, so let's start with you know where you are in the world during this quarantine and how your life is going these days, it's been very interesting. Interesting just like I would say probably ninety nine point. Nine percent of the world is trying to figure out what the hell you're. GonNa do during his time. you know the one fortunate part about it as being an artist, I've been locked in the studio painting new paintings and working with different ideas and working with RAF and his team Carlos Costa to figure out new and inventive ways to drive in bill business and do things that we are currently not used to doing. So it's been. It's been a wild interesting two months of figuring that out. What's your interest level tenants? Do you play? How did you get into this? US Fascinating I'm actually one of those weird concoctions of I'm an artist athletes so I was a big time athlete. As a kid played eight years of Baseball's all-star in baseball play basketball. I was all star in basketball. Basketball led me. Tennis I was a basketball player. Freshmen in highschool and kind of got into. An argument with my coach basically just decided to leave basketball. And I picked up a tennis racket and I had just. It was a natural thing for me to do. And before I knew I, had a professional coach, and my coach was played played on the tour and played John McEnroe. He saw me play and before I knew I was training with some of the best players in northern, California. And so I played high school career. played college and I still train. I still training a tribe while afford the pandemic I was out there every week. just started getting back out there about a week ago when they released the courts, but tennis is definitely in. My jeans had so much, so that my son plays college tennis. I'm actually had a scholarship to Chapman University as I used to play and made teams freshman, and he's also coach now, too, so and even though he still in college, but yes, definitely in my blood and strange enough. Raw Molly the owner of art encounter. That is my distributor. It turns out the way that we got this deal with him. Was He was tennis player in his whole family's sex players, and when he saw the original painting that I did have all sprouted in hadn't seen them in years we. She just freaked out. Saying Oh my God. This is unbelievable what I told him. I have five hundred signed by the dog himself. Personally and myself and we did a whole thing back in the day. When we have this painting, he's like. Nope, that's it. We're going to do something, so it's been a very unique tennis story all the way around. I can honestly say I think it's been a while that I've actually heard someone say that. They're both an athlete an artist. When was When was the moment where you're figured out like? Wow, I actually have a knack for this whole painting thing. That was easier. I I was asking rg by the time. I was five six seven years old. My parents had me in special school. Special Art schools and You know it was something that they noticed when I was one years old that I can draw and I'd actually kept first painting I drawing than I ever did when I was one and They just knew my dad was artist. He never followed that trade. Actually went into corporate business, but my dad is very artistic used to do paintings. So I kind of had that gene in me. And I just knew at a very early age. That was what I was going to do my life. We hear so much about young athletes figuring out their skill set at a young young age at like three, four five, and to see that art is very similar as interesting for those who don't know the story Bruce is the owner of Salzburg Media Fine Arts, a broad range of professional sports team three. Of National. International athletes he got three D work of Rafa. Nadal for those are not watching this on video. It's behind him, but it's also going to be a link in our episode information. He's also got artwork of Muhammad. Ali Michael Jordan Prince. Fielder Dirk Nowitzki. Irk Nowitzki I'm not a basketball person. I'm sorry. Most importantly. It's the tennis painting that we're really here to talk about, and it's Three D. art, so I want to start with what is three art. What's the process for making an artwork like this before we get into the Roth story? This was very unique idea. That I came up with lean back in nineteen, ninety five, I was doing my very first art show at the New York our next on back in those days that was the largest art show in the world. Everything was painter of any place anywhere was there exhibiting in was at the Jacob Javits in New York City, so as massive and I back then you the jury to get in so jury to get an shared a booth with another artist, and when I was there, all brought was abstract paintings on canvas, because that's what I was painting at the Time Big Love Klee Miro. Picasso, that was kind of backroom basically, and we've been in the show for five days and insult. Damn painting and I told. My My. Fiance at the time in my mom was there with me. I gotTa Take I. Just need to go walk the show and I said. You know if I'm going to do anything in my life I've got to figure out how to do something that no one has ever done and for some reason and it's time. My Dad owned art gallery. Very very successful one back in San Francisco. East Bay and I just something popped in my head. work on glass. Just a glass on the second I got home I started Phil around layers of plexiglas and low and behold. That's how it was born I. Just we just figured out how to frame it how to do the whole thing in. One, doing where usually as an artist you paying on one level is a canvas most most of the time. You're just doing everything on that level of what I wanted to do with cigarette how to take a look at an image of a painting in break it up and put different parts of each of painting on glass, and then use spicer's to separate them, so there's space in between each layer. You get that natural three d look with no gimmicks, no anything no lighting. It's all based on different layers and different perspectives, so that's how it was born and. The risk on history.

2020 AFC Win Totals
"Let's dive into the AFC after we hit the NFC last week and the Baltimore. Ravens are the first team up. Eleven Wayne Steve. Eleven for the Ravens. Weapons a big number. Baltimore was truly incredible. Astro you forget about how well this team really played so really. You're handicapping is Jackson going to be able stay healthy for the entire year. And that's too big of a question mark for me to be able to play over so I will pass on eleven. Y'All think that number is exactly right. If I had to pick I would pick the under if I had to lean one way or the other you know. They stayed very healthy last year. Matt Scott was sort of the only injury they had at center out. Expect them to have more injuries. This year I think defense is will have a much better plan for Lamar Jackson and Greg. Roman after they sort of go to option school. If you will talking with defensive coordinators in college this off season I also think you know at some point. Lamar Jackson is going to get dinged up and miss a few games. At least I'm not saying serious but he's going to miss them games I don't think. Rg Threes at great backup. So I would lean under on the eleven wins there for the Ravens. They might even lose jude on. And they don't have any pass rushers if they lose him in free agency. So I'd be under there. What about the Buffalo Bills? Their numbers only eight and a half. Steve Looks about right to me. Josh Allen played much better I'm sorry then What I expected and Alan having mobility in his legs really Made him a very capable quarterback. I just go back to Buffalo. I have a bias. Ross Against Buffalo New Love Buffalo. So we should talk about this. I never feel that Buffalo or Detroit or Cleveland can field a PL- a playoff team because there's no real Recent history of success and they're just cities that no one would wanna live in. So I think they have to pay through the nose to get free agents so I just don't see success continued success being possible. Absent a all star quarterback. How do you feel about that crazy theory? Well I think what's crazy about it is. I don't think that they need to pay through the nose. They just have to be the highest. But I'm not sure that that's that much different than the other teams. I mean when I was there. They signed free agents like London Fletcher. Takeo spikes lawyer Malloy Sam Adams I mean they signed a bunch of dudes so it wasn't like and they haven't made the playoffs in a long time now they. They made the playoffs last year and they should have won a playoff game. And so I. I don't agree with that. I think there's a lot of people that believe that I like the over for the bills. And yes maybe I'm biased. But I don't know what they won. Ten Games last year could have been more. I think that they're a pretty darn good team. I don't think Josh Allen is going to get worse. I think they know what they are and who they are. Yeah I I would take the over. I'm I'm surprised by the eight and a half number especially when you consider that New England. There's a lot of uncertainty there. I mean what a Brady doesn't go back to New England. Yeah that's a great point and and bottomline. Mcdermott is probably a top ten coach. The top ten coach. No one would ever put on their top ten list. He really does a great job. Yeah I'm surprised by that number that would that would be one of the ones I would feel strongly about at this point and I don't think that is just my bias showing again. These numbers
Tua Tagovailoa's Recovery Shakes Up the NFL Draft
"Time last year to ten goodbye. Loa was the consensus number one overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft but when a devastating hip injury in November ended his season at Alabama his NFL future was cast into doubt now with new reports. That too is recovery is on track. Teams are debating whether his elite talent is worth the risk and the entire draft. Looks like mystery? I mean at times? It's Tuesday February. Eighteenth this is espn daily presented by ADT. Todd Todd mcshay is an NFL draft in college football analyst for ESPN so todd. The last time we saw Tunga Velo on a football field. He was getting started off with a hip injury and it ended his season and Alabama title hopes along with it. News broke last week regarding the status of his recovery. What we know now well first of all I was there that day and it was brutal to watch behind. He's down to us. Down Helmet came off. This is exactly what you did not want to see happen and I was probably ten. Maybe twenty yards away from him as the to. Mississippi state defenders converged on him. And you could just tell right away. Something was wrong but then I saw the bloody nose at first and they said the trainers got. The plastic wraps in there has the gloves on their hands and and I just thought all right. They're they're just taking care of his nose and he'll be done for the day and then he went to stand up and you could tell just how deep his knee drove his leg into his hip that something was seriously wrong so it's good to hear that he has passed his first test. If you will sources confirm to ESPN at the most recent tests show is healing well and has good range of motion to what could get back to football activities in a month if he continues to progress well and is now moving onto the second phase of of the Rehab and recovery stage. There's still a lot left to determine and there's still a lot of rehab to go so that's going to be the biggest thing in terms of his evaluation between now and late. April's draft is where is he? And what are the doctors really? Think about the long-term WanNa talk to you about his injury and the draft. And you know the time line for all of that but I I wanNA talk to you. About what a good football player he is because prior to that injury he was the base star in college football. And you've been watching him for a long time wind it I strike you. This guy's got this stuff how `bout that throw in the national championship talk. He had never started a game and now he's in the National Championship with the game on the line he was coming off of a bad play was able to shake it off. He's keeping his is down the middle of the field and he's working that safety just a little bit to the right. He's trying to move the safety as much as he can because if he does. He knows that he has Smith's breaking down the sidelines. The is move the safety just enough for him to go back to Smith and make the throw of the year. I mean he just knew the spot that he had to get it to and to come in the second half and to have the confidence to lead Alabama to a victory. That kind of told me everything about him. And from that point he kept developing. But if you go back and just really study his tape the things that make him special his deep accuracy is as good as you're gonNA say he's so quick twitch he's like a drew brees from the left handed side you know just how how works in the pocket and goes from one read to the next but keeps his is married to his feet. He fits what you want in today's NFL. But is he going to be healthy enough to with that hip recovery to to have that quick twitch nece and and the ability to to move as quickly as he has tie? You're around these players but also these programs. What did you hear about how to? Oh was handling the injury in his rehab process. Everyone loves him. There's a calmness and a poise about him that you rarely see with with college quarterbacks or any college player so. I'd like to leave you with this from one of my favorites McGraw songs. When you get where you're going don't forget turn back around and have the next one in line. Always stay humble and kind so confident but so humble talking. Nfl SCOUTS IN GM's not a negative word about him. He's a special human being and wherever he winds up going. He's going to be the face of the franchise obviously but he's kind of a culture changer if you will and and. I think that's part of the draw in part of his value. It's not just this injury right. He's had other injuries that have caused him to miss time. He broke a finger sprained. A knee injured his quad. The ankles even before all of this. How much of a concern with that? It's a big. It really is a big concern and the problem is if you study the history of it if you look back. I think it's the last ten years or seven quarterbacks that had college injuries there were first round draft picks that all of them have had some varying kind of durability issues in the NFL from Rg. Three to SAM. Bradford Shawn Watson Marcus Mariota Carson wentz Teddy Bridgewater Jake Locker. All of these guys have gone on to have injuries now. They're not always the same injuries. Some guys are are just injury-prone and just knowing. Nfl teams in the amount of time and the amount of studies that they do. Especially at this position. Especially with first round picks. That are going to cost you. When you're talking about quarterbacks in the top ten twenty to thirty five million dollars in guaranteed money they're doing the research on this and they all know this. You know your job over the course of these college football seasons you're not just evaluating these players you're thinking about where they'll be drafted if to ahead gun her at that point in the season where do you think he would have gone. I think he would be the first overall pick. I think if two was healthy Cincinnati would be taking to a number one overall. I really do if he didn't suffer that injury. We would be having a great debate between two a ton of Iowa and Joe Borough but ultimately my guess is that too would probably be the decision at Number One and knowing Cincinnati. They'd probably they do something to maybe move out of that spot. Make a mistake and let Miami or the chargers Carolina come up and get that pick. If I'm being honest he's he's better than Joe Borough and I love Jober but if you tell me these two guys are going to have ten year careers with no injuries. I'm taking two but then I've got a measure. R Joe Borough has been durable. Jost has shown the ability to kind of fight through pain a little bit more and to stay healthy and so. That's really the deciding factor. In my opinion I have to ask you know. Why do you think he's better than borough? I mean rose coming off of arguably the greatest season we've ever seen by college quarterback. What is it about two as game that you prefer? If I knew he was going to be healthy I think he just kind of fits a little bit better in terms of what what the NFL is today. Terms of getting the ball out quickly and being decisive and then also when you take shots down the field. But I I love Joe Borough to if I WAS CINCINNATI. I would take her over to because of the durability issues. Borough is worth the the first overall pick and I think Cincinnati would be making mistake if they didn't take jober tied. You have to take proof your analysis because you're gonNA get clipped saying to us better than Joe Borough and that's GonNa Follow you forever. You've been spending too much time around.
Mark Regev: Israel's Modern Story
"Has been in post since April twenty sixteen prior to that he was the chief spokesman for the Prime Minister of Israel. A position he held for eight years. He joined Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Nineteen Ninety seven his deputy chief of mission of the Consulate General in Hong Kong and spokesman at the Israeli Embassy in Beijing. He also served a spokesman at the embassy in DC and he was the spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem from two thousand and four to two thousand and seven. He also said as a combat soldier in the whole brigade the idea originally from Melbourne Australia. Mock Fry bug as he wants back then moved to Israel as a twenty two year old no significant family or contacts his progress to embassador shows. How flat Israeli society is. This is one of a number of Israeli related episodes in the series of Johnny Goad Jewish. State scroll down to find biographer of Lord Balfour and the historian of the decades leading up to the formation of the state of Israel. Lord Leslie Turn Bug that's episode the Teen and life in Shin Bets with its former chief Yaacov Peri. That's episode ten so his ambassador again have and we started by unpacking that Australian background. Who is the way out of this world competition belief against me? It's not a competition and busted a regular. Thank you very much feel time and agreeing to the interview today. Here on Johnny Jewish state. I'm happy to be with you so now. Your background. Which is very interesting. I think to the Anglo Saxon. Speaking world of jewelry is that you're Australian correct. I was born in Melbourne Australia. In nineteen sixty and my father was born in Australia. He was a what they call in Australia. Postwar refugee he was a survivor dollar cost originally born in Germany. My Mother's family. She was born in Australia. They were Polish Jews who were lucky enough smart enough to get out of the nineteen twenties and they They arrived in Australia. I think even the last year of that decade and I remember my grandmother always saying that. Save the family. Had they stayed in Poland their fate would have been the fate of Polish Jews which was not good. And how did they Australia? Unity family story so I know on on both sides on my mother's side. My grandfather was on a train some going from Poland to Germany where he was studying engineering. Things were pretty GLIMP- for Jews in Poland in the nineteen twenties and he read an article in a magazine that Australia is the country of the future on the other on the German side of the family. I think after the Holocaust people say what is the furtherest place away from Europe Austria qualified. Freiburg was the family name Going back to the rations my head this thing at the age of twenty one I had. I said these people tried to kill us. Do I really want to German. Name for the rest of my life retrospectively. Now I know I made a mistake because I I very. He never said anything to me. But I offended my father very greatly but at the time at the age of twenty one twenty two when I did it. I was convinced that this was the right thing to do. I'm aware of how Ashkenazim took on the name of the town where they came from and of course a lot of the early. Zionists took their Ashkenazi names and totally he. Bray is did correct David. Ben-gurion is probably the prime example. I Prime Minister Shamir also Menachem Begin. Correct having said that though I suppose it was if it was part of me becoming an Israeli though. Part of what you said isn't correct. 'cause Freiburg the place in Germany is U. R. G. And my family was always. Rg so I'm not sure. It was connected to that physical location in Germany. Look when you head. Brewer is a name different ways of doing it so Freiberg is in English. It's free and Burgers mountain so I could have taken the Hebrew accrued of innocent played with that and I did and nothing successful came out but I was going out at the time with a woman who was studying literature at the Hebrew University. And she said you can also do it by playing with the letters so Freiberg in Hebrew is pay raise bait and you can play with the letters and rig of came out very nicely. Well I think it's It was an intriguing name when I first came across all those years ago. I'm glad to this question. Lazy Lane so now being an Anglo Saxon speaker is a real asset to Israel in the modern media world to explain Israel across borders to billions of people. Whose language is. It's their mother tongue or their second. Language is a huge asset. And something if I might say that has been quite a glaring omission from Israel's diplomatic mission in early years of the Jewish state so I think if you look at the people who held the position that I hold now we've had some English speakers of native born English speakers and And those Israelis who held the role of also had mother tongue English run persona had still has of course grading this. He is the son of a diplomat himself and as a result he went to school abroad. And so. But you're right I think The ability to speak English at mother tongue is a crucial element. If you want to successfully make the case for Israeli and international audiences it is a prerequisite but in itself. It's not enough like I sometimes made in my previous job in Israel when I was the spokesman for the prime minister is to meet a young immigrants with mother tongue English mark. I'd like a job like yours. How do I get it right and I would explain to them so good? English is important. But it's as I say it's a necessary prerequisite but it's not in itself enough. You have to know the issues backwards. You have to read everything that is relevant. After the politics you have to know the history you have to understand the issues and I think that is just as important if not more important than having a strong command of the language because he my early teens. I used to despair at some of these really politicians who were fairly Broosk in their approach and even their attire to media interviews with the BBC and others. I don't think that really helped. So this new generation I think led by the Prime Minister himself who speaks in. I think the best way to describe these fluent American. Well I believe. The current prime minister did grow up in Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and his father was a visiting professor and he he he grew up there returning to Israel to do. His Army Service is to mother tongue languages. He had both burning which is a marvellous advantage to have and but I think to be over. Critical of the founding generation because that founding generation includes people like our Evan who was an amazing spokesman for his very articulate People say that he's speeches. Go down in history as some of the most awful speeches in English in the twentieth century thousands of years ago a people land language came together in Israel birth and the cost of Man's life and thought was lifted to a new point of elevation. Then for centuries this pattern was split asunder. The people the land of the language were separated and tragedy and danger befell of the mall separated each from the other. None of these three achieved the creative potent sit which they each knew when they lived together. What IS MODERN ISRAEL? Except the reunion of this people land and language in the sublime fulfillment of history cycle a bridge thrown across the Gulf of continents and generations to symbolize the unity ofo historic experienced. Many people will know you from your competitive interviews with snow during the Gaza offenses being the media spokesman for the prime minister a hugely different communications brief to that of being an ambassador. I was arrested by that idea that when you became the ambassador it was a completely different communications brief almost a different personality from the attack dog to John. Snow on on media so being spokesman I had responsibility over specific areas and as ambassador. You have a much more general responsibility as spokesman. My job was to make sure that the people in international audiences understand Israeli government behavior is government policy and so forth and so that was done through communications as ambassador. That's part of your job as well but you have many other facets economic relationship cultural ties government to government discussions. Him obviously as ambassador. I'M STILL THE PUBLIC FACE FOR ISRAEL. I will do interviews. I will give talks. I will brief and so forth but A. I'm also doing things as ambassador that were not part of my portfolio when I was the government spokesperson. It's a more broad range of of job.
AMD Outshines Intel at CES 2020
"Think the big news for us us at this week in computer hardware as Amdi is absolutely totally and utterly taking seven nanometer into the mobile space and gunning for Intel's tells biggest moneymaker on the CPU side which is of course laptop processors or mobile processors. And and that that was the big sticking point we've talked so much in two thousand nineteen about rising three thousand processors and they had their seven nanometer zen to architecture picture and as complicated as Pew Micro Architecture is just the fact that Ed they reached that seven nanometer number to do things like really push shit with aggressive clock speeds release more cores because they went to a new manufacturing technology that uses something called chip bullets which are little. CPU CPU while they're they're small. CPU dies that go on to a larger substrates. And you can put more than one of them onto a CPU so on desktop that can fit two of these things in the same size processor package that used to top out at four six maybe eight cores. And now we have products like they're sixteen core reisen nine three nine fifty x so on on the mobile side though there was brazen three thousand which was just kind of rebranded Zen plus technology from the year before so it was still on twelve nanometer. It it didn't really make the impact on mobile that you would expect it. Although we talked previously about Intel's woes kind of getting products out the door. They had their own fourteen hundred meter Issues with supply so more and more laptops started becoming available with Andy as an option even though it was an older architecture the great thing now as far as competition goes and and seeing where this will take us as far as mobile performance in two thousand twenty is susanne to is now on mobile big announcement and we're talking about mobile parts that are up to Acor sixteen threads and that's from a forty forty-five watt part that would be the rise in seven forty eight hundred h and actually a thirty five watt variant of. It called the forty eight hundred. H S also exists Eisai's Jason is one in an RG notebook. But you know it's pretty serious stuff. We're talking about you know four. Six eight core hyper threaded or in this case. SM T like multi threaded Parts for Mobile at seven nanometers hitting the kind of TDP. EP targets that we've been used to from inside with their higher performance mobile parts which up until recently I mean I think the highest part from Intel on mobile global is probably going to be. I think it's a core sixteenth as well. There's an option for that. In some very high in notebooks and linked the new macbook pro and that sort of thing prior to that they'd had an option for up two six cores and across the board most of their options around the four core mark and those are still fourteen nanometer parts. There are some ten meter parts out there. We you definitely saw more announcements of your stuff from Intel et ce. Yes but just the fact that reisen three thousand and is now on mobile. It's called Reisen. Four thousand that's the thing the mobile parts or a generation ahead as far as the naming convention goes but it's it's literally just the notebook variant of two thousand nineteen hottest product. So that's very big news and just Everything that that involves I really at at this point. They don't have navy on mobile we haven't you know we know that's coming coming we know they're working on Nahvi integration with AP US obviously amd has has scored the win with both of the new gaming systems. Coming up with the xbox playstation decision five so we coming but for now we've already seen things at CVS like the forty eight hundred thousand seven mobile part are paired with like an arts twenty sixty in a high end gaming laptop. And that's just something that we had just totally foreign to anybody who has gone to any of these shows covered industry for the last five or six years when any gaming laptop period or productivity machine. The one I'm holding in my lap right now I was always some form of either a core. I five or core. I seven mobile Intel part and if it offered discrete graphics it was probably going to be an invidia discrete graphics exchange and now. AMD has found their way into more and more laptop models throughout two thousand nineteen and now isn't just a sort sort of metoo products where they can fill a void left by Intel struggling to meet demand for their fourteen nine meterologist parts suddenly. It's it's a significantly better alternative in some cases depending on what the target is. I can't wait to get these end because we can look at at charts and we're looking at right now watching the video of you know single threaded performance gains multi threaded gains the graphic performance. Because there there are integrated graphics with these as well But just getting them in hand testing laptops and seeing what the finished product is going to be if the battery life is going to be any different than Intel Park because if we get these and they run at the same temperature as as an integral part and they have about the same battery life but you're getting higher core counts. It'll I feel like it could do the same thing. That's rising did on desktop where really pushes Intel to respond with more and more of what had been reserved for those ultra high performance. Like mobile workstation parts. Yeah because that's kind of what this is like the forty forty eight hundred zero reisen. Part is like a mobile workstation. CPU Yeah No. I mean that's the big thing for me. is they from really from a performance standpoint. This is this is fantastic right. 'cause we can pretty much guarantee they're gonNA cost less or the same amount of money. You're you'RE GONNA get a lot more course. What I'm very curious about is to see how ambitious Abe's architect fares are architecture with battery life? Because so much of Intel's Technical Prowess or engineering focus over the last few years has not been about like upping the amount of work clock cycles so so much as they have been working on reducing the amount of energy consumed by the processor at all and the associated chipsets sets and everything else around it and they have a lot of fairly serious engineering accurate and tied up in that we think you know and part of the reason we think that or I think that is because you know until told us for years at the Pierre is not the big power consumer the CPR is not too big power. It's the screen. And then they get a massive Chains they just re architect it the way they handled You know the power of the processor and all of a sudden battery lice went up like fifty percent and it was just kind of like okay. That happened but to get back to where you were going. I think if if you can you get more performance but you have to. The battery life is becomes less compelling story. I think they have to deliver battery Park. That is comparable to the Intel parts or the battery. Life's for us to. I mean this is exciting though I really WanNa see whether or not you know. HP Dell and Lenovo. Oh step up to sign up for these parts on their premier laptop lines which would be a gutsy move for them to this is going to piss off Intel and there's always the possibility is is amby going to be able to scale on this. Are the parts going to be. It's it's always exciting when you go with something new but I envy is a lot of experience with seven nanometer at this point and we seem to still be able to buy GP SO I. I feel That that the the the processes working that said I think their goals to sell like an order of magnitude more mobile processors. They sell jeep us. Because there's a lot more mobile users than there are are people Graphics cards for gaming so I mean in terms of like our coverage is probably the biggest story at the

Putting Lamar Jackson’s brilliant sophomore season into perspective
"It is a beautiful day it is the day that everybody realizes that Lamar Jackson is an absolute freak show not only did they beat the hell out of the patriots a couple weeks ago not only did they just dismantle the Houston Texans now on Monday Night Football in Los Angeles California Lamar Jackson who was only a three and a half point favorite against the Los Angeles rams all those wins by forty RG three got sometime in the fourth quarter it's always good to see triple sticks out there throwing the ball round that god moves the needle point I don't know if people turn I came off at half time you can't blame Lamar Jack's is making the sport look like child's play not only is the faster than every human and pulls away from other humans he has this ability to dissect the defense of not a lot of people give them credit for because he's a guy who I think puts in the work behind the scenes in the in the film room which is tough to do by the way whenever you're Lamar Jackson think about this Michael Vick admitted that he had this problem think about this your entire life it doesn't matter what sport it is football let's say they're playing tag help kick the can Lamar Jackson has been the best athlete on every field he is ever stepped on his entire life he walks into a sport is a version one point bank that's for players on the field as soon as he walks on so you would think whenever you have some success which he had it will evoke any continued to grow then you would think would have some success a Baltimore although we didn't have the is the amount of success I'm sure he wanted to show the highlight of him getting clobbered against the Chargers last year at the end of the season but to think that this guy has had the amount of success that he has had at all levels and he's still putting in the work in the film room which is very obvious by the way you got a lot of very smart players blame for that Los Angeles rams defense Eric what was one of the smartest safeties ever play the game and is making a move with his eyes he's making things happen in delivering the ball into spots and it has to be so not only is he the most athletic guy he seems to be the hardest working guy he's one of the smartest guys and he's a guy that could throw the hell out of the ball what the recipe for your MVP I'm all the way on the hype train at this point I don't know how you can't be I don't know how you can't watch check I play football and say Hey that guy makes football better that guy has taken a football that has changed its offense of strategy over the past few years from the R. P. O. to the wide open offense spread throw the ball to change the rules of fantasy football numbers can go up it said the raven seems on the complete opposite direction when a bigger bodies in here and we're still going to make it the most exciting must see often sets available because we have a guy who was an anomaly a unicorn a one of one they broke the mold when they created him let's see other teams try and do this and duplicate it they won't be able to do it Lamar
Lamar vs. Deshaun: Dual-Threat Duel
"Dummy Foxworth is a former. NFL Player in a writer. At the undefeated undefeated Dominique Texans at Ravens Shawn Watson versus Lamar Jackson. I M extremely pumped to watch this football game name I mean how could you not like their playoff implications about like the first round by then you have to. MVP caliber quarterbacks going face to face race is not even that they are officiant are exciting. Like Lamar Jackson is spending people out of their shoes back. And I got a touchtone school into Shawn Watson taken feet to the face and throwing touchdown passes swatted. Betty goes down. We stay so to speak. This might be the most exciting game of the year. Well let's back up. This is not the first time these two quarterbacks have played what happened during their last match up as they played against each the other twenty sixteen in college we have a QB dual death Valley Malabar Jackson sensation in the sport but Shawn Watson. Is this delete veteran. Lamar Jackson Accent was at Louisville. A Lot less talented Louisville going up against Clemson and it was everything that you wanted Jackson Jackson. What's the pocket staff? Lived up to the. Both of those guys had great games. I think Jackson had nearly the three hundred yards passing any at one. Hundred sixty yards rushing touchdowns rushing one passing. Scores Standing at Louisville is walk. You're right back in this game and Watson won the game with over three hundred yards passing and five touchdowns through the air. In Ninety one yards rushing fires back the open it was a great game was close. Lamar Jackson and his team came this short of the end zone Jackson. Listen it go back then in two thousand sixteen. What was the perception of both of these quarterbacks like I mean Lamar was Ryan? Pretty high ended up winning the heisman trophy. That year and does Shawn Watson didn't do too bad himself want a national championship that year. I think people were very very the high on both of them right. well as I mentioned Sean went out and won the title. That year seemed like a no brainer that he would be A starting caliber. NFL quarterback a sure thing and yet the draft comes around and he falls to number twelve. He was picked behind. Mitch Trubisky and Dan Patrick Mahomes what happened. I don't know it didn't make sense because he didn't just win the National Championship. He came from behind throwing the ball through the air. Picking apart art the Alabama defense which was loaded with NFL talent. It seemed like what more do you want and then the very next year. Lamar Jackson also faced faced skepticism. When it came to his prospects in the NFL there were some respected people at this network and elsewhere who thought that maybe his best chance at succeeding being in the NFL was to play receiver which just made absolutely no sense? heisman trophy quarterback who wasn't running the option in college. He was running a pro style offense essentially at least a passing place. Where pro style? Why anybody would think that he needed to switch? Physicians was dumbfounded. You and I washed him very closely closely. Dominique ahead of the draft. We actually wrote a piece together about what it would take for him to succeed in the NFL. What was your conclusion from doing that? We look more deeply into a player's background in on field performance than I had with any other player and I remember being surprised at how developed a pocket could passer he was because all his highlights highlights that resonating. Your mind are him running so you think well maybe. He's like a running quarterback but no the criticism about him was not at all about his ability to read defenses or run a pro style offense. The criticism about him was about his accuracy which is fair but he was much further along as far as being. NFL Pro Ready Ready quarterback than most guys will get kind of tagged with that dual threat right. I went to his day in Louisville for our peace to do some reporting what did strike me about being there was during his throwing drills seeing how bad his wide receiver rose war they were dropping passes right and left. Yeah and I would think that. Having living bad receivers frankly or just generally mediocre talent would bode well for him in the draft process. That people would recognize that he was that entire program. I am all the success that they had while he was there was because he was great. And it's interesting that you bring that up because somehow teams looked at him and didn't appreciate that and then they looked at Shawn Watson in maybe poverty why he slid was because they had so much talent at Clemson. So like People looked at Shawn Watson and they might have seen maybe a guy who was just orchestrating a bunch of great talent and not a great talent himself. I'm not sure how they could watch the film and come to that conclusion. At the time I remember being kind of confused by but I don't understand Dan. How else do you select him behind? Somebody like Mitchell trubisky. Dominic what do you remember from watching the two thousand eighteen draft Well first of all I remember I remember watching it in a dark room with you and Bristol doing some sort of live show. It was really fun. And I remember Lamar Jackson showing up in that beautiful green suit and and feeling optimistic about him landing on a team early because I frankly thought he was the best quarterback in that draft and then watching him slowly. Sit there and all the time passing by and I remember thinking that. There's no way that they're going to let this heisman trophy. Winning Uber towns at quarterback. Go into the second day but the ravens swooped in and grabbed him with thirty second. Pick in the two thousand eighteen. NFL draft the Baltimore. Ravens Select Lamar Jackson in Louisville Right. Meanwhile I'm sure that he was uncomfortable in that moment and he did not enjoy sitting there in the green room with the cameras. Keep checking on his side face but it worked out because I don't think that he would have the success as in many other teams. You use the word confused to describe your reactions to watching these quarterbacks drop in the draft but really I I think you have some thoughts as to why it happened now. Oh Yeah I wasn't confused. Shocked said that because I seem like the right to say hey. I'm black man. I'm very aware of the the unconscious. Or maybe sometimes conscious bias that that goes into the decision making that happens in football and sports beyond that it just as difficult when you assume that there's so much riding on making the right decision that people have a difficult time getting past whatever biases. They are to try to succeed. So I'm not surprised. I think those those players that are brought up earlier like the contrast I bear I think makes it more glaring than anything else is like when you look at Lamar Jackson Deshaun Watson. Why are you more prone to see someone like rg three your career path? That's not successful than you are to see a career path of a quarterback who did succeed. There's just kind of faulty narrative out there that I think a lot of people whether knowingly or not kind of ascribed to is that mobile or athletic dole thread are or frankly just black quarterbacks. Don't don't pan out when they get to the
