"It's you know it's ask in in in a way the way that he The way that he speaks the way that he carries himself in the way that You know he's he. He handles himself with the press. Even and the fans you see a lot of a lot of similarities. And i have a feeling it was Had some influence from it wasn't just that he played every day said he played every day and he was good. Like that is important. That i think people you know garrick same thing. He played every day and he was good. If you're if you're not good you probably don't get the right to play every day and probably played through some injuries. That may be would be better off if you just took a day or two off. But the fact that he was good gave something everyone in that city and around around the league to to grasp onto really respect and mac. You mentioned something about that. That ethic that that ripken personified. If this rumor true that's a little. That's a little dent in that ethic. And i think that's also why. The story is so fascinating. Yes and her to you guys like you. You've talked about this and it's something i related to. I think he did it in the first episode. It's like you know you don't have the same relationship to baseball today as adults as you did when you were kids but you still love the game and if something was told you know you've found something out about ripken from that era it would bother you because you had such an important connection to him and what that streak meant and So i think it's i don't really have a question it's just it's just I think that's why the investigation into this works Just like oh was there a scandal. It's like okay. Everyone has a scandal at some point right. So it's it's it's so much more than that really. Yeah for sure i stakes for baseball baseball fans. But then i you know for for sammy. It's like there. Are these these very personal stakes. And i one thing. I love about the story in our work on it. Is you know that can change like it's it's kind of nuanced. I think it's very rare in sports. Where you have winners and losers in good guys and bad guys to have a kind of weirdly personal nuance story. That can change almost minute to minute. Depending on new info that were learning at. It's interesting because if this is true ripken's wife was cheating on him with a seemingly a friend in kevin costner ripken's the victim in that portion of the story but if he then conspired with the orioles to get the game the power cut and the game delayed he also becomes evil in the whole story. So it's sort of like he's a victim on one hand but also it's like he's skis ball on the other hand because he's doing things to preserve streaking. And so that's also a cool angle to it. No andrew eight. You're really putting your finger on on the absolute heart of what we're trying to do with this thing. 'cause as you've just described the implication of the story is that cal ripken may like other human beings contain multitudes and Th that idea as obvious and on the nose as it sounds you know maybe in this conversation when your kid and you're growing up idolizing somebody. It's not just that you can't conceive of your hero whether it's a baseball player or a movie star. It's not just that you can't conceive of them as being nuanced in containing flaws It's that it would be destructive to your self conception like you need somebody who is beyond reproach because your body's changing in your mind is evolving and those things are happening on different tracks in You know your life's in chaos and and you're trying to mature and everything and there's such an incredible value in having a figure in your life lead. Cal ripken who you can consider to be just the embodiment of having doing things the right way and a right exactly a role model and i think the thing that has been really exciting about this project is the chance to interrogate. You know we're using ourselves to tell the story but hopefully it's a universal universally relatable thing what does it mean to move from needing somebody to loving them for who they really seem to be And that's one of those things you know. It may sound deceptively simple out loud. But that's something that we're all trying to do whether it's with our parents or our partners. Our children are are Other members of our family or or any anything in our our life and it's a very bumpy process. And i think you know not that. The show is only for You know sis. Hetero men or Or that hetero men are the only people who care about baseball. But i do think Just speaking for myself as assist hetero man like baseball was how i was able to talk about feelings. Yeah for my life. Everyone has something in their life that they love so much. Whether it's baseball or whether it's or whether it's you know. What are you singing like. Whatever you want to a and if that gets taken from you in any former fashion that everyone can relate to that answer. That's a little yeary that you gave those three examples. Because i was a decent little league baseball player than at a certain point. I told my mom. I wanted to stop playing. And she was like oh Why do you wanna do something else instead. And i was like yeah. I want to draw in play the guitar and to this day. There aren't two things. I'm worse that than drawing and playing the guitar. And i really wish i really wish stuck with it really was. That was a decent The league shortstop. Yeah well i think. I stand with the orioles Any of us could probably i. I use those examples because it was brought up that you were in a band at some point in the nineties and then drawing i think because i also like to draw a kid i. I don't know why. I picked those three examples. Whatever okay you're not reading diary. I guess but still your but i want to get into a little bit like nuance because also i. I'm i'm not like huge true crime fan but like over the years you know you get into these different whether it's cereal the podcast or whether it's The jinx is another one that i really got into on hbo. I love the details sort of finding out like in the interweaving of it so this happens the incident in august of nineteen ninety seven. He's already broken the consecutive games record long ago. So if if if he just didn't play that he's he's he's already achieved what he set out to achieve. So why is it. So why is it so important. It's because oh if he did it. Ninety seven maybe he did it in ninety three and maybe maybe something happened in ninety one. Nine hundred eighty eight. Something happened that they covered up to sort of build him up to this family. Those that ripped young back going going through what they need to go through to make sure that they're still the ripken family. Even though billy we'll talk about building another therapy peeling back the onion is what is what makes it really fascinating And it's like..

"Got our joking. You can tell. Baseball fan is by if you ask them. What position does dick. Our can play whether they say third base or shortstop and he's a third baseman to me and he's a shortstop to scott so that's just another thing that time but talk about in the eighties in the early nineties. How important ripken was to the city of baltimore. And the orioles. And and i think that's a reason why this story works for sure mack. Feel like you might be better qualified to to start this off. I have a thought but you now. They mentioned that andrew Sort of similar for salmon. Me like you know. I when i was a fan of the team with the years. That ripken. I came up And then you know. I think sam was more of a die. Hard fan like through the nineties kind of bridge. That time you're talking about and yeah. I mean it's it's it's in the show to some extent We have you know. We spoke with journalists and other folks to comment on exactly what you're asking and i don't think it's giving too much away to say you know Is it even by mixing up. I don't wanna give anything right. But they referred to him in With the highest of craze. In like we say in the first episode like the streak is credited by a lot of people saving baseball right because he broke gags record in ninety. Five and ninety four was the players strike in the postpone world series. Two coming out of that. The league really needed this story very badly and it delivered in ways. They couldn't possibly imagine But even when it came up he was rookie of years first year. Mvp a second year. They win the world series in eighty three catches. The last out. I mean is the son of this legendary oriole coach at some point as brothers lying second and he's playing short and his dad's third base coach. I mean it's really a royalty for professional sports team the legs of which i can't really think of an equivalent for any other team So yeah i mean it was just. He say baseball a saved the city. These are not hyperbole to say new this study. I think something that has been really fun for me to have sort of confirmed by the reporting that we have done which is something that i always had. Maybe a gut instinct about or a sense of but that it was really exciting to hear people multiple sources really say in in literal. Words is that you know whereas new york for example or la are both big media market cities that are associated with you. Go there to be a star whether it's to be a star in the movies are to start the culinary industry or to be a star of a baseball team and baltimore is had. Has this really really deep Sort of post industrial blue-collar identity to it and the fact that cow was famous and renowned for just showing up every day. And doing what he was supposed to do. And that there was any kind of a claim for that. I think touched a very deep nerve in baltimore because that's an identity that a lot of folks in that city had going all the way back to i think the forties and the fifties and through into the eighties. Maybe even when by the time it was the eighty s in the nineties a lot of the industries that had been in the city had and helped create that ethic and sensibility had moved on. And so cal was a reminder the fact that that was such a part of the fabric of what it means to be a baltimore in And so i think having somebody who was an embodiment of that doing amazing things on the field every night. At the time at shortstop you know literally physically cutting presence at shortstop. That was unlike what most people were used to. Which was this smaller. More y relight hitting sort of figure. Here's this big hulking guy who As we say in the show Clubbers home runs and tenders cradles ground balls tenderly. It was i think it was a real revelation and and for baltimore specifically it was a real reminder of what's at the heart of of being somebody from that particular place and one last thing just to add to that but i think it's important also so the orioles win in eighty three in the winter of eighty for the colts leave town. And you know. I mean you've seen diner for two minutes you understand The relationship between the city in the colts and we had a source. Tell us that the day after they left everyone drive with their lights on in the city was a funeral. So like to have this. You know son of baltimore royalty come up at that time especially that time. I think to sam's point it really very quickly very immediately. just solidified. that idea. That was him in his ethic or like impossible to untangle from the city itself. You know. I think when you go even beyond the city obviously the impact in the city. Just as you guys describes was so massive But looking just at baseball. And the way cal i think shaped a lot of what the future was going to look with players going to play that position our own derek. Jeter you know six four Alex rodriguez six three six four. You see these guys as that normally would probably be at first base or third base or in a corner outfield spot are now you know showing their athleticism and able to to play short. There weren't many big shortstops. Calverley really opened the doors for a lot of just baseball players. Going and actually thinking they can play in that position too so The yankees certainly appreciate that. Because i think you know it was direct influence on on derek. Jeter and and him going up and you just see the way. Derek jeter carries himself..

"And when I even as I'm Cal Ripken streak of crying on consecutive days in like, you know, it was hard. Only old people get that reference. Oh, I know. But, you know, like I did have plenty of days where just getting out of bed felt like the win and yet I'd still start my day with gratitude, like finding the good that was already present despite the conditions that I was in was a way to just hack a little bit of how I might because of that gratitude practice, go on the hunt for things to be grateful for. And so some of it was just this conceit of good things are going to come out of this. You will become something because of the post traumatic growth that can come out of the hardest thing that you've ever experienced. And it's, of course, way easier to say that and see that today than it was in real time. But I just had a little thing here, a little thing there. A text from a pasture that came every day for the first two months of the experience, 11 really profound words, what small piece of sadness can I hold for you today? He wasn't trying to diminish the pain agree if he wasn't trying to even do anything more than just offer solidarity and some empathy for the fact that this is a shared experience kind of thing. I'll walk alongside you while you do it. But the fact that that showed up every day was just a reminder, some evidence of the things you need are going to show up when you need them along this journey. I'm out running and a new neighbor has happened to move in down the street. I had my head down. I was very emotional that day. I was not interested. I got on a plane kind of thing..

Played in more consecutive games than anybody. Lou Garrick held the record for decades in 2130. Cal Ripken played in his 2131st game in 1995, but didn't stop there. He played another 501 more consecutive, like another 3.5 years. Yeah. He finished his career playing in 2632 consecutive games. Think it goes without saying a record that will never be broken. Davey Lopes of the L. A Dodgers set a major league baseball record on this day, stealing his 38th consecutive base. That is hard to do. It's hard to steal three bases in a row. Much last 38.

"Same age. Oh there's a lot to save your ears. Say he's grace off the side. Why why did it take major league baseball so long to come to day. I'm not sure i know the remember. The the ice bucket challenge that went around the country of the gods awareness it really came from a grassroots effort and one guys who was who had the disease say look. I want to do something about it. And how do i get partners collected to do it. And that was amazing. And i think that success you know pushed another grassroots effort on this time around it started with all the families and the people that had it. What can they do to help. Other people and the obvious move was to get major league baseball involved Lou gehrig's disease lou gehrig best player in the league and have them in their collective power on the issue. I thought was a wonderful thing. Gear as a player is enough. You know really look at it. Was the most player. He was greatly respected admiration as a baseball player. Any was the epitome of an everyday player. You know we play and we grind it out in the sport and it's not easy and he went out and did it every single day and he was a model for someone like me. He was a an inspiration for me to be considered in everyday player. He was he was the ultimate. So i don't know why it took them so long but i am so glad that They did commissioner. Manfred was a big part of that. I knew i had had some conversations with him about. And i just think the The idea was fantastic and each and every year. This is the first one each and every year. We'll be able to shine that light on very horrible disease. College a will here. Is it true that you've never watched the replay of you breaking garrick streak until a couple of days ago. Is that true. Well it was. It was this last year in the twenty th anniversary. I decided that i that. I preserve the memory of that night for my own aunts and i thought that was pretty cool and refrain from every once in a while and see highlight on tv. And i will turn it off right away. But i decided to sit down and watch chris berman and you know we in that. Twenty one minute Ovation kristen say a word. And i thought that was that was pretty interesting but going back and watch it. I was able to take in some things that i didn't know what was happening in and around the and it was it was a wonderful way to go back and look on twenty five years.

"They will play the milwaukee bucks in the second round of the eastern conference playoffs. That begins game. One saturday night in brooklyn and i think we can all agree. That's probably going to be. At least you hope it will be billing to be the best series that will get in the eastern conference be just because of the matchup because of how compelling is going to be the bucks a team that has been on the cusp of championship contention for a couple of years waiting for them to make that next step. This might be their biggest challenge. And can they be up to that challenge. And there's the big three of brooklyn averaging eighty-five points a game in their first round series against the celtics and jay. You're not really taking the celtics seriously like as far as like. Yeah all right this now. This is the test for the nets of this is. This is their biggest test far. I fourteen that hasn't really jailed yet. That still has every team has to go through growing pains this year. You had katy. I was out for a little bit time. Kyri that's gone through different things. You james harden out for about a month and a half so now they're actually finding a rhythm against a team that is retooled and tucker bobby portis bryan forbes do holiday like bringing an element of toughness to this team and shooting to this team so matchup between jaanus and kevin durant. That's primetime that's primetime james harden. Vp's going ahead tonight. A special exactly. And james harden is the one guy that makes the offense he unlocks it for brooklyn so seeing. How coach bud. Who look i think how they play in this series. We'll determine if coach bud is the coach of the bucks next year. Wow if we would if we see clean smooth play from brooklyn where they're just kind of coasting along and getting it done in milwaukee on the other hand is what we've seen the last three years i think coast bud is done. No i mean what what. Not even necessarily the coach. The makeup of the team do you now. All of a sudden started saying. Oh here we go again. Honest well on your on his point. If this is a close series we expected to be scratching claw which means last two minutes. Big possessions bigshots. Who has the big shot makers is jaanus a guy that gets it done late even on the free throw line. No he hasn't proven to be that guy brooklyn's got guys that can do that. So there's the thing like if you get to the last two minutes of these games and it's a close game we think this will be tight series the the the upper hand and that's where again more of that jaanus criticism will come out is can you. Can you get it done in crunch time because he has to do that while he's not the time player. I think we've recognized that having. We saw that players. Chris middleton i mean he's been the guy who has the ball on his hands he was against. They need to make big shots. I mean he was even last year but they got three versus. One guys are talking to me. Like i'm picking milwaukee to win this thing. I never came out and said that. Just asking you for pro basketball expert about challenge. Saying he's a basketball. Experts are still have brooklyn winning. I just think that you know for anybody that thinks they're going to just walk in this series and win it.

"ripken" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"R. is the number to text or call four one five am Caskey Texan says is it me or does cal Ripken look like a more mellow Dana white he'll take a more marshmallow he Dana white like nowadays he does for terror cal's gonna blown up I was I was so surprised yeah he was still pretty finished or the rail going back in in ninety six even it wasn't wasn't a big deal we do now he said you know what most people get a little older you retire in so if you want stuff in the gym everyday it's all good ninety five checks in on the touchline and says biggest take from cal Ripken junior talk he use them from the sky box I'm not sure what that means is that name I tell my kids all sitting in the sidewalk and he said no I told my kids are sitting in the Starbucks they had no clue starter on a luxury suite I'm not sure what the character references to that though and then for one sciences are Ripken's Garrett juice was contrived garbage so over rated well I did do my I hate if you got a takedown of cal Ripken by all means that it might take down of of Duke Snider last week so so when I take down Lou Gehrig to my next column a ball hog forgetting it is exactly what I just I don't understand what the it was a can it was contrived garbage you do have to pay a little bit of attention to after ninety four you have to think about what the the motives of the the media surrounding baseball world right like you gotta you gotta figure out or or make of your he made the most of your opinion I guess as to what baseball wanted to do after the ninety four straight right people left people weren't coming back to the game so if you could tie cal Ripken to Lou Gehrig and get people in seats in a new ballpark I can totally get that I can also see what bugs you would just sort of turn the other cheek when it came to the the home wrenches in ninety eight it brought people back to the game so at four one five I'm not gonna just be you at all I don't remember the the media surrounding it or the chase leading up to it as I said I just hadn't seen this game and I wanted to to get a piece of history but Hey I'm not going to speak to you if that's how you felt about it I don't think pager Gomez's chasing around or anything he was a fall of not only to fall in Barnstable carousel Pedro was like the bonds guy Hey I scarecrows on on the phone lines let's talk which that's the growth yeah with all these changes already baseball's much as the next guy when does it stop being based polymers start other game thank god for bid we keep rob Manfred from turning this into some kind of video game at separate sector but I would be more worried about what about a year of know what income firm small market media market teams and how much is that going to shift things around which is a lot since I wonder though like I I'm with you and I've got a problem with saying Hey to to better double has used on the line if okay to other problems soon seven inning doubleheaders I know they do that the miners but we don't keep track of minors records for the history of the game hi how many no hitters have we seen go seven innings and then get broken up in the eighth or ninth how many will we see if we only play seven games I understand the like we're risking changing the game of baseball and I am more than maybe anybody doesn't want to change I like the way baseball is I hated the DH eight instant replay I hate this three better minimum I hate any of that stuff that gets added I'm a baseball guy I like baseball the way it was a reason simply for a hundred and fifty years I do gain more do think however scarecrow may be sure the sermon maybe not that for this season and maybe this is only we do have to do something different if we want to get any kind of game on the field I know the the small market stuff is gonna make an impact either way I mean if they're only playing baseball in in Arizona can impact big markets as well so you don't do for the second just get on the field I'd be okay with changing it up for this year I'm afraid though that if we make changes this year there may be positive ones in the eyes of the league and I don't want to change back that's what I'm fearful well never mind the fact that these guys have never met a dollar bill that they haven't fallen deeply in love where but the point being this is a game that has a history it is a little bit more I mean it's a business but it's a little bit more than that and to be perfectly honest with you I just assume not played at all well I that's that's something that's probably on the tables must care for a person to call me and I was appreciate when you chime in yeah I I that's probably in the cards but I think that's why they're talking different changes for this year because I think the if it comes down to playing any baseball hi in a in a modified fashion versus pulling none at all you're talking small markets are hurting every small margins would still like to have the TV revenue I think the radio stations to like to have those games broadcast on their networks you know so I yeah we were talking dollars and sense but we're also talking about can you mitigate some of that and get some product on the field is that less important in the sanctity of the game maybe but he's he's keeping his sentence he became more valuable than not playing anything at all I think you lose more by not playing anything then you do by playing something modified that's just for my state so when they go away when Leeds go away it's hard to get the fans back the casual fan doesn't go back you're talking ninety four hockey said the same problem football won't because football's really sick but oddly it's hard to find if you have taken a certified Hey let's hear from Dan Straily the former Oakland ace pitcher he was ballooning ERA's tonight Lester football's world okay that's that's all your news of a job in the JV by the way you wanna go pitching career go out now and get rocked in Baltimore for a one of the worst teams in baseball anyway tickets freely he's in the KBO now and others to be first season there and they asked him about what the process is going to be for getting guys on the field maybe baseball can take a page out of the KBO book start again on the twenty first practice games and we have six games and there's ten teams so you know everybody's playing six games and if if we get through those six games with no player or staff member getting the virus then we move forward if anybody anybody if the number one starting pitcher to thank the person the cleaning security are indeed to anybody gets sick in that time one two weeks like this is about keeping the people safe this is about keeping our employees safe by keeping our fancy and even many people getting sick as they can possibly control yeah so they're talking they've got a plan they're saying we're gonna get out there we're gonna do a test basically just gonna do a everybody hears a Guinea pig and they're talking buyers to talk in hi team officials anybody who's tied to any of this if there is anyone who contracts a virus in the shut down for two weeks and this is after six games I don't know what their living situations are I don't know what the dugout situations are an imagine they're gonna take some precaution in that regard but they're out there playing with masks on the right I mean I I don't know I just my sister was asking yesterday really think baseball can get back in may it seems seems really optimistic you know I got I'm hopeful I would love for there to be something in may but it seems optimistic kind like wish in one hand and one the other insurance you get first class I don't know it's I don't see it happening and and here's the thing too is is we're asking you know is there something else I want to watch it all fans could watch whatever they put out when the NBA had players playing NBA two K. last weekend I watched it D. was watchin I racing you know people are people are checking stuff out if there's something to watch people I think are gonna pay attention which is why Dana white is working so hard to get this you'll see two forty nine on the air be it in a hurry a casino on the reservation here on tribal land in in California so the the other irony that it's in a place where you're gambling that he's going to have this desire right is ironic the other part of this is what players feel about this we discussed this yesterday players you would have to be on board with this in that you've got guys who would be maybe sequestered from their families for upwards of four months and I and I know they did I mention this yesterday the either Dominican and Venezuelan players and foreign born players anybody comes over from Japan or Korea obviously they're away from their families for that number of time but you've got to get now players who are here in their home countries to agree to do that if you're going overseas obviously you're making that agreement is part of your inner voice your journey but if your dad was pitching in your hometown you signed on to we never get to use the home town discount right and you've now got to be away from your family maybe that's a feasible maybe that's not something that's in the cards and I think he would agree the happy wife happy life mantra applies to people outside of outside of the sports world and on rosters as well oh absolutely that is the mantra that any married man should should live by so you live happy wife so so Jeff Passan actually spoke to he won't name the player but he spoke to a player who initially said absolutely not dude I can't do that I'm not leaving my family to play in a in a bio dome image of passes it yeah it's actually a little later on he changes to pass the Clara couple nights ago if you have to go into a city and you are separated from your family for an indeterminate amount of time and this is a player who has a wife and kids is that something that's going to work for you in his initial response was no F. in way.

We'll talk with White House chief economic adviser Larry cudlow about that and prospects for trade deal with China. But I the other fights on Capitol Hill the controversy over whether Michael Cohen has lied to congress again and Democrats still divided after passing a resolution responding to congresswoman Ilhan Omar's comments on Israel. Here's chief congressional correspondent, Mike manual. The resolution has agreed to without objection. The motion to reconsider is laid on the table Democrats expanded the measure to condemn anti-semitism, Islamaphobia, racism and other forms of bigotry and only indirectly references congresswoman Ilhan Omar this resolution ended up really being an effort to protect her. Ed was completely watered down the controversy taking attention away from Democrats passing of a massive election reform Bill. Let us look to the Senate and say when we pass this Bill, it's not just what happens on this floor. It's the message it sends to the American people. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said that Bill is dead on arrival. Meanwhile, House Republicans are questioning democratic staff spending hours with Michael Cohen prior to his testimony last week, some Republicans charge. It was an effort to coach a witness while Democrats say it was normal preparation, and there are more questions about whether Cohen who was later to begin a three year prison sentence in may for crimes including line to congress lied again. I have never asked for nor would I accept a pardon from President Trump.

"Alga hang down Cal Ripken. I mean, you know, as as we said, there are different tiers of the hall of fame and in that top tier those guys should be unanimous. I mean, how can you argue against the great. But I think, you know, look Rivera outstanding outstanding contributor postseason guy. Nothing. Nothing wrong. Everything was great. Lee Smith dominant and his time very very, you know, just an outstanding pitcher from someone from team to team. But when they brought lead Smith, and you know, it was going to be trouble. Edgar Edgar Martinez, and I must say going back to the early nineties when I played fantasy baseball. I had and the guy was amazing just could hit and hit and hit and he never stopped hitting. So the physicians you gotta acknowledge A D H. He was one of the one of the best ever. So might be seena. Look he's in that tier of pitchers that were terrific. But that's the modern world today as not Jim Palmer is not Seaver is not Carlton. He's not any of those people. But he was a guy that, you know, once you in seventy six games so wins did mean something and you gave him the ball. And and things happen for him and halladay of his time. He was the Seaver of his time. And even though the numbers are not two hundred ninety wins in that era of baseball when nobody nine innings, and nobody did stuff that Halliday. Did he did? And he did it in the postseason. So you know, they top tier dis Marianna probably is sure. That's that's how good he was the rest of them. Probably are not top tier? But certainly they should be remembered forever. And that's what the hall of fame is all about here here. Great stuff mardi fan fest, Saturday, February ninth and you'll get rolling again. We'll have weekends. The park to be a lot of fun looking forward to seeing you. And so, yeah, we'll see you Saturday February ninth out there at FanFest. I don't run into the station.

"Here on seven twenty WGN. It's Wednesday morning. Wildcard wednesday. Win. Get your requests in any artists any song anything Larry requesting. The cure just like heaven, and we are back by the way, Dan, you know, we had dinner at the Marie very brothers Caddyshack restaurant before the screening of slapshot last night. And the food was great. And it was really a lot of fun. And I don't know if the if they knew that I would be pleased with this. But they had the eighties. You know, the eighties music station on or whatever the channel, you know. And they were playing jams like the whole time. We were there like some of my favorite eighties music like back to back to back to back to back. I was happy. He played the fixed. They played the Thompson twins. It was fantastic. So Duran Duran. Great. We're talking about sport moments or sports that sports that made you cry because it was either a great moment or a sad moment. And let's see we've got more of these moments here. Three one nine eight one seven two hundred. How about this? Cal Ripken junior. Takes a lap. Ripken. Went out. Went out there every day and played without complaining and had a respect for the Orioles fan base. Like, nothing I've ever seen before in my life. So when he finally broke Lou Gehrig's consecutive games streak record. He they would not stop cheering after five innings had passed. He went out for a curtain call and then took his place in the dugout. However, he was forced to come back when the Baltimore crowd would not stop cheering. They went on and on and on and on and on eventually forcing Cal to take a lap around the stadium. It was an extremely touching moment. Hey, you know, I got the interview Cal Ripken junior. Really? Yeah. I was I was filling in for Cochran, and he came in studio first of all. He's a massive guy. He's a big, dude. He's a I mean, I'm not a big, dude. I'm five eight, you know, I'm a little weasel. But but I mean, I had no idea he was that big and one of the nicest guy, one of the really one of the nicest guys, what a nicest athletes I've ever met really really good guy. But I remember my my one of my friends used to make fun of makes fun of her used to make fun of Cal Ripken. Because it was like was he so what does is it just because he has the best attendance record? But that you know, that's impressive to play. I mean know, I while you're playing a sport every single game is a risk of you getting hurt. And it wasn't like he was bad. It wasn't like he played every day. And he sucked he played every and he was good. But like, my friend friends who totally made fun of that record of SU who cares about that record? Because we know when when when you were at school, did they did they give you a prize for like, did you get like anything for for best attendance? I did. Yeah. Yeah. I do too. I got socks tickets. They used to give us what did you do you? Remember, we also received the this was back on the cups axiom was the exhibition game. We got tickets to that. Yeah. We would we would get SOX tickets, which of course, I was disappointed about because I, you know, live six blocks away from field and the school. I went through was four blocks away from Wrigley field. So it was a little like why are you giving me? Why are you? Giving me SOX tickets. It's really hard to get the Comiskey if you're like twelve to I could walk to Wrigley three. I don't like the socks. But yeah, that was a reward for for for for most attended or best attendance. And. And I got I would never get any kind of other. Like, I'd never got any kind of academic award. You know, so. See like, unlike Cal Ripken, I would show up every day and not be good. That was that was that was the difference between Cal Cal Ripken. I did I ever tell you did I tell you the story when we we you know, that my friends, and I went on that epic baseball trip back in nineteen ninety we stopped at a bunch of places including Baltimore, and it was the year that Camden Yards opened up. It was the very first year that would be a credible stadium. So, you know, the babe Ruth's house where he was born. And where he grew up is in Baltimore. And so we did I tell you this now. So we go we go. We went to a lot of when we got the Baltimore. The first thing we did was we had to go to the stadium. Either scalp tickets because you couldn't get tickets. It was the the very first season of Camden Yards. It was a brand new park. So we had to get tickets off the streets. We got our tickets put things away. And then I, of course, insisted that we had to go to any place that Edgar Allan Poe had ever been in in. We went to his grave and all that stuff, which isn't a really really CD part of town. Let me just let me just say that if you're gonna if you're gonna visit Baltimore. And you got to you want to go to pose grave go I suggest going with a group and going into the day. That's that's my suggest pretty CD part of town. And it's cool, though, highly suggest that you go because it's awesome. Especially if you're oppo if you're oppo fan, so and then we're like, hey, babe. Ruth's house is not very, you know, let's let's let's go to babe Ruth's out. So we go to babe Ruth's house, and this is like the house. He was born in like, they actually have you know, like, the the bedroom that he was born his born in the house the veteran that he was born in had like a velvet rope in front of you couldn't go in and it had like the furniture, I know probably replica furniture, obviously or something. So you're so you can walk through the house, and it had little parts little plaques up on the wall. But one thing that that we were like astonished by week. This is babe. Ruth's house. This is where the baby was born. Okay. You know, one of the greatest baseball players in the history of the sport. And acknowledged by everybody to be that and the living room on the first floor when you walk in living room on the first floor. And I don't know if it's still like this or not. Had a gigantic display case that took up a wall and a half like a glass shadow box display case filled with nothing, but Cal Ripken stuff, pictures, and jerseys and all kinds of stuff. And then if you walked up to the never forget this if you will. When I walked in. I'm like when did Cal ripkin move into babe? Ruth's house. How is this? How is this legal? How how is is is is Cal Ripken allowed to take up half of the room and babe Ruth's house, and then on top of this whole display shadow box case filled with pictures and memorabilia and stuff you could press a button, it was like one of the things you could press a button. And it played nobody does it. They played like three verses of nobody does it better. And while we were in babe Ruth's house like walking around you heard. Nobody does it because people kept pressing the button. I can't imagine being employees at baby like a a security guard or something who has to stand it, babe. Ruth's house and listen to nobody does it better five thousand times a day. I just thought that was weird. I was like what what's all this? Cal Ripken stuff doing here. It doesn't make this is just no connection accepted. Cal Ripken was at that time nineteen Ninety-two Cal Ripken. But still it's Babe Ruth houseman move out. Take Carly Simon with you. We're still cool though. I can't remember who they played. But the but the Orioles distract remember who they played. But you know, I think it was I think it was. It was it was Oakland. It was Oakland. They destroyed him. I remember they just stayed destroyed them. Yeah. Yeah. So all right. Let's take a quick break. We'll come back. We got the news coming up, and then more sports stories that make you cry right here on seven twenty WGN. WGN radio.
Creepy New Trailer For 'Slender Man' Movie Has Been Released
"We randomly talk about multiple weeks in a row, like always makes, yeah. Like what Willie walk had the long stretch that's currently the. That's the Cal Ripken of of running news stories, which we talked about Willie Wonka for a very long time. So that is Star Wars, and Charlie's angels. We were done with Star Wars for now, put a lid on it also by the way we're, we've been view in this episode what a great host. I am here not even setting that up. We have an interview with the Patrick Renna AK ham porter from the San LA, Kendrick, Jack, and I talked him for about fifteen twenty minutes. We don't have that in the middle of this podcast. So she'll be a fun one. Ken Jak admitted to him that he doesn't like the big green or like the big ring wasn't on his top ten list, and it was pretty funny exchange. And then let's move on next bit of news. Slender man, new slender man trailer. We kind of were anti slender man trailer when it first came out. This is a new one opinions changed. You wanna see more. You wanna see a less. I wanna see it even less. I think they're making this fucking movie after this horrific actual real life of that happened, not even half a decade ago. This is like. Exploiting it like another sound soft. You know, whatever. But I think it's stupid. I think just straight up stupid. It's dumb as hell. My opinion has not changed. You need a reference in this specific time code or talked about it before because I don't think we could summarize it any better. Fuck, fuck this movie. And I don't say that a lot. I do not say that a lot in this podcast, you know, I'm very careful with with saying bad about the brands in about the movies, but I just I do not like this movie. I do not like what they're doing with it. It's it's really fucked up. The stabbing was only like four years ago, like you're saying, it's it's necessary. It's not. It's not a famous event where you can whitewashed for the event of what for the profit of movie theater. It's silly like even Billy idea even like patriots day or they call it. The Boston marathon bombing movie, which was in sanely way too early to make a movie like that. There's actually been two of them because there is the stronger one, but that was don't hall on.
