"Kiana meals was from safety to linebacker to become be starving in the actual base defense. The nichols watching how they do is going to be a real bellwether the whole defense because not only will we hopefully see them making better. Plays and see parsons using his speed in his coverage ability out there to prove that he was a wide selection Now we hoping to see. Neil you know do well as in the nickel which means he's going to be able to use the fact that he's got safety to maybe come in hell bound with some of that slot corner slot coverage and pick up someone. So maybe they don't rely jorge luis You know we're hoping that maybe light vandross going to have a bit of a revival 'cause when he first got there he went bad it coverage either if the linebackers are looking good. That's also gonna tell us that. Hey those defensive live in front of them are keeping them clean and they're not having to deal with offensive lineman getting to the second level heartbeat and disrupting thanks and hey maybe the secondary is holding up a little better than it was which is giving the linebackers a chance to take care of business You know so to me watching what happened. The linebacker is going to be the ferry early indicator and not just the fact that mike parsons was a good draft. Pick is gonna tell us that the whole defense is gelling a kind of a rounded. and that's what. I'm really hoping we're going to say. I really wanna see parsons in meal and light van rash and even jalen smith have good games and show that they are not going to be the pushovers that they so often were at twenty twenty and the opportunity to see it. All is just hours away as the cowboys. Take on the daca. Nears in this season opener thursday night football dak prescott and is arsenal of weapons. Take on tom brady. And is our snow of weapons star studded as you could imagine for an opening night and oh by the way fans will be in the house for the first. Nfl football game really. I know we had some era dallas several times over but this will have a little bit different of a field committee and i fully anticipate being a raucous crowd as our own meg. Murry from the girl's talking boys guests is actually going to be attending this game and may even be taken over the blog instagram. Make sure you check that out and check her out. She's trolling some bucks fans. I promise you cowboys win will be one of those ones that you want to follow at With four ours. And i also wanted to to midge the fact that i saw report from A guy i got to be on an ochsner who goes by jay. tuck On the on on twitter there were some planes headed towards tampa bay with a lot of cowboys fans so it looks like as always dallas the dallas fan base going to travel well so this may be a little bit less hostile arm Than you might expect for the defending super bowl champions of their first game back home so it's going to be going to be one to watch and now have to focus on not hyperventilating until kickoff. That will further tampa ham fans that kickoff time a little bit past their bedtime for most. So it'll be interesting to see if the cowboys fans of snacks. Those tickets as we expect. And maybe they have a decent showing up but hey it's time to get going baby. Cowboys opened the regular season night against the tampa bay buccaneers. And we got you covered here on the roundup.

I am going to do with the fact that this isn't the kind of what we thought it was gonna be. And i think the cowboys are going to to not look horrible but still come up short. I've act predicted a thirty. Four twenty four win for the buccaneers relate Just cover the spread. And i kind. I think that's what's going to happen As long as we can get most of the team out of tampa bay healthy than out. The i think they're going to be okay because the straight to the next four or five games certainly will to lot more manageable than this. This is going to be. I think their toughest game of the year for a variety reason. So hopefully it's all downhill from here. Yeah i see the bucks win. This one is well thirty. Six thirty one cowboys. Get a late touchdown to cover. But it's not quite enough to To overcome what really is very consistent and beria wealth put together tampa bay buccaneers. And i do want to.

"Think he needed two home runs. At the beginning of that season to go past him, and he did three players, of course of it more than 700 home runs in the history of Major League baseball bonds at 7 62. Siren at 7 55 on the K rod, is it 6 96 didn't even stick around it for more home runs and become Justin Fourth player ever. You get 700 home runs but nevertheless those air to mega mega stars that died over the weekend. Hank died Friday and wonder Larry Di Saturday. Deliver with Saturday. Yes, you know that Hank Aaron on January 5th. Got the his first covert vaccine shot. I don't know if I I don't believe you got the second. He never got the second. I say he died of coping. Know he died in his sleep peacefully was the report I thought I'd write covert on front. I didn't see cause of death. I think I did. I think I think they're saying covert 86 years old, but Great player. Great man. Very gracious man had to deal with all of the racial issues and a switch. Lowry pointed out the story about the man with a gun that Fulton County Stadium that night when he hit the home run, move past Babe Ruth. The white folks in this country were very unhappy. It's not a black man was a legend like Babe Ruth, especially the South. I mean, really what he went through with in the Negro leagues and and then when he joined the Braves In the minor leagues, not being able to stay with his. You know his teammates that type of thing. We talked to the great Yankee last week. Roy White Roy White. Same thing. I mean, it was just disgusting. What happened, particularly with these Jim Crow laws in the South, which were rigidly enforce the right up right up until the early sixties. It was worse for Hank and Roy because as good as Roy was, he was an all star back in 1969 in 1970. He was not the star. After that. That team had guys like Thurman Munson and Reggie Jackson and Chris Campbell s and will he ran off and on and on. Hank was the star. He was the man and he had to deal with that. In the very beginning to the very end. He played for, like 25 seasons 22, or 23 in Atlanta and the last two years in Milwaukee. And Wasn't easy, but he was a gracious man, a great man. And a lot of people like I've said a couple of times this morning still recognize Hank Aaron, despite the fact that he had seven less home runs and Barry Bonds because of the steroids bonds at 7 60 to 1 of our own at 7 55 lot of old baseball pants still consider Hank Aaron, the home run King. Look, we all know Barry Bonds went from looking like Article two of the rock overnight and I know hand eye coordination is one thing that he did win when he looked like Oracle and Chris Rock and all that stuff with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He did win MVPs. So he was already a great player or Hall of Famer before he became this this legend in San Francisco. What the young with the Giants when they would walk him with the bases loaded. But in addition to hand I cordon coordination, you need power as well to hit a home run. So it did make it somewhat easier had to help. It gave me an edge at the very least. And so, yeah, he shouldn't He? I believe Hank Aaron should be considered the home run king at this point. I'm not Barry months, all right. Larry King was married eight times. Eight different women. It was just I was looking at the his history of the shows and all the folks that he interviewed. I guess he never interviewed Elvis JFK. Or God. I think those are the 33 only three Don't interview, But the list of wides is very long. Yeah. Well, the idea that I was going to say there's nothing there was nothing not to like about Larry King always had a, uh, upbeat demeanor. But apparently the wives didn't think so. There was something something went on there. I don't know what it was exactly. But look, he was a smoker. Yet heart attacks toe that that he live T o. Whatever. What was in 87 87 87 Daddy lived that long is really a marvel on a testament to modern day medicine because This guy had everything wrong with him throughout the years. On. Of course his lady is I'm sure they weren't pleasant, but he still made it 87. You know, I would. It was still working on the show's on the RT. That's right. The Russian television station He did everything you wanted to do. It was he was the man for a long time. And you know he had a great life so it should be celebrated. Will you mourn the loss of somebody, but you celebrate their life as well. We're going to talk to the great Roy Firestone coming up at 905 this morning. Do not miss that. I believe he second toe Larry King in terms of how many interviews he's done. He's done more sports interviews and anybody interviewed Hank Aaron. A ton of times. So Roy Firestone's going to stop by at night talking about sports huge sports weekend. We know now that Tom Brady is on his way to his 10th Super Bowl. He played a nine as a quarterback for the Patriots. He wants six and three owing to against the Giants also lost to the Eagles. Now, his first season in Tampa. He's got the Buccaneers playing the home game in Super Bowl 55 up against Patrick, my homes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Chiefs won it all last year. My homes on the M V. P and Mahomes is trying to become the first quarterback since Tom Brady to win consecutive Super Bowls. A lot of story lines up a lot of story lines. He probably will. If yes, may he'll beat uh, Brady, even though they're in Tampa Bay, the home city of the Buccaneers. But it was kind of exciting. I guess. You know, the Tom Brady himself made it exciting. My throwing three interceptions in the second half, which again doesn't bode well for him in the Super Bowl. Of Mahomes. The concussion was not a factor. It was great. Yeah, it was, And there's no reason to think he won't be on in two weeks when the Super Bowl of clothes now Here's the question. Ah, lot of people a lot of restaurants, you know they That's a big night. Super Bowl night. People come, they eat. What is this Super Super Bowl goes later than 10 o'clock today, throw every everybody out with five minutes ago. And you know the game is tight. Is that what they do? You don't have to do that. Or they could find a million dollars. It's a good question. I don't know. We do know they're allowing 22,000 fans in the seats. And 7500 vaccinated workers will be there to chiefs Right now. We're 3.5 point favorite over Tom Brady in the book in years, but that's a very good question. When it comes to the restaurants we do have a this week is restaurant week, but it's to go here in New York, a lame facsimile. What we're really gonna do, But listen, we gotta stick with sports. Yes, it is The Chiefs and the Buccaneers and the Super Bowl. And we had Jim Nance on last Friday to talk about which was a great guest. But we also want Dana White on last Friday and he was getting ready for this big fight. As we were in Abu Dhabi. The return of Connor McGregor. And to say Connor was disappointing may be an understatement. No, he did Hey, won the first round and he's just strike three knocks people out. If it was lightning fist strikes he's got these long arms like Popeye disarms his knuckles drag on the ground. But he didn't he hit. The guy who was fighting didn't knock him out. He got knocked out himself in the second round. He it was a leg kick affair. He got his leg kicks so much. That he was like stumbling around, and then the dude knocked him out to do. It's a beast. His name is Dustin Por Yai. And there's a new economy. Gregor. Very mature economy. Gregory pre fight after fight None of none of this cockiness and this arrogance. Honestly, Gillison getting getting your ass kicked plans The humble every, obviously before the fighters. Well, he's the one who put his hands out. I saw that touch hands, and he's like he's got his hands out. You know, there was a lot of respect as opposed to his previous years. He's been humbled because he's done some stupid things in the past, got arrested in Brooklyn for hitting a bus with a chair and then he punched an old man in a bar in Ireland, right and he was hammered, they say, so he's lost a bunch of fights. I think he's 43 times in five years, So if you want to really stay well event in the sport, he needs to fight. Ah, lot more often. We need to get my set up by we can beat somebody up really badly to make a stand back, and he says he will, he take said in the post fight interview, which which, by the way he stuck around for after they interviewed the guy who knocked him out..

Thank God Almighty. We're free at last. Beastie Boys. No Sleep till Brooklyn But after that minute of that unbelievable speech, taking you back to the Lincoln Memorial, August of 1963 march to Washington over 200,000 Americans assembling for that wonderful I have a dream speech Now, 57 years later, we celebrate the great Dr Martin Luther King Junior who, of course, was assassinated back on April 4th of 1968. Now his birthday was actually Friday. What a bunch of people say was celebrating his birthday today. That's Really bad If you don't know that it's part there was actually Friday, but we are celebrating. That's the holiday today. The way we do all holidays these days to make it to make it three day weekends, right? That started. What about 20 years ago? Yeah, this holiday actually started back in 1986. Ronald Reagan put him into writing in 1983. Started in 1986 a lot of states, including states like Arizona and New Hampshire, very late to the party. In fact, all 50 states did not start celebrating this holiday until the year 2000. So it's only been about 21 years, brother. We played no sleep till Brooklyn because the Brooklyn borough president Eric Adams, who may very well may very well be the next mayor. He said to join us now, But he's not here yet. So no, he's not. He's late every time. So what we will say this following in the footsteps of building blocks. What? Well, maybe was later. Hey, may very well have a good excuse will wait and see. Look, the stock market's closed today is the banks. The schools, Post offices all closed today in honor of Martin Luther King Day. And I will say this He was born in 1929. By the way, his maternal grandfather was half Irish, somewhat. Luther King is 1/8 Irish. Wow. He's one of my people. So you like related to him with my people. What I'm saying, bro. Hey, look in 1955. He led that the boycott of the Montgomery of Excuse me. Montgomery, Alabama bus bus. Is that was 1955 the Montgomery bus boycott. As Fred Watch told us. Excuse me. He was a young man. And in 63 was the march on Washington. You heard part of the I have a dream speech. There. That was 63. That was a couple of years or a year or two before the Civil Rights Act was voted into, you know, was voted in that and the Voting Rights Act so he had all off obviously had a lot to do with it. But one of the more interesting things that I mentioned it earlier this morning. Was that he went to Morehouse College. He was born in Atlanta. Morehouse is in Atlanta. He went there and he went when he was 15 years old. He was that smart. He passed the test. It was 1944 1944. Lot of blacks were in the army, even though they were segregated. Ah, so they were actually soliciting people from junior high schools and stuff like that. And he passed the test. So before he went to Morehouse heist a college that summer he went to work in Connecticut on a tobacco farm to make some money. So while he was on his way up to New York, he noticed some things. Now he lived in the Jim Crow South, which was horrible. The Jim Crow laws lasted until the the Civil Rights Act in 1965 stuff started to Ah, Fall apart after Brown versus board of education in 1954, But But here's the thing on his way up to Connecticut. He wrote this to his dad, he says On our way here, we saw some things I had never anticipated to see. 1944 After we passed Washington There was no discrimination at all. The white people here are very nice. We go to any place we wanted. Sit anywhere We want to And he talked about being in Hartford, Connecticut. While working on this tobacco farm, he says, we could go to one of the finest restaurants in Hartford and that Negroes and whites go to the same church. And this was the impetus for him to become a civil rights activist. He said. If it could be that way in the north, why not the South? Yes, A very good question. We did speak told time. New York Yankee Great Roy White back in the six o'clock hour. Roy was a great Yankee. Between 1965 in 1979 was on those two Yankee teams that beat the Dodgers in the World Series in the summers of 77 78, behind the rocks of Reggie Jackson and Bucky Dent. And he talked about how when he was a minor leaguer A. He played for a double a Yankee team, which was named the Columbus Confederates, and he got away the Confederate flag on his jersey. And then he talked about how early in his minor league career. The minor leaguers will be staying at a hotel in these cities, and he couldn't even stay there. He had a state by himself. Some black housing community couldn't travel with the team. So Roy really experienced how ugly all this was in the early 19 sixties, And then by the end of his career he was in, you know, partying in New York City with guys like Thurman Munson and Bobby Mercer. Yeah, No, he was very, uh, It was very articulate and is almost casual. The way described it, I guess maybe at the time it was, it seemed normal, but it's It sounds so horrendous. So, uh, so offensively ating these days. I mean, it was really awful. What happened? Well, that's why I brought up to him. I said when you hear LeBron James talk about these MBA owners. As a plantation owner was a slave owners when the bronze making upwards of $100 million and staying in a five star hotels and driving Richie cars. I mean, Roy White couldn't even stay at the team hotel. So when you hear LeBron James bitching Willkommen copper nickel made about $90 million with the 40 Niners. How do you feel when he gave a great answer, which is? Hey, look, those guys they're trying to further or good cause and That's probably the best answer you can give. Yeah, yeah, I guess so. So anyway, Roy White. He was fantastic. Go to WNBC radio dot com. If you wanna listen to that, By the way, I was struck by he 77 years old..

"Certainly give him credit for that. No doubt the Roy white former Yankee great on the Bernie and said show, So after the whole civil rights legislation passed, and it was sadly after Martin Luther King was assassinated, though, ah things did you experience a tangible You know the difference in the way you were treated, you know, in various cities, especially in the south. I mean, obviously you were allowed to stay with your team. But I mean, there was still this anger and this hate, I guess directed at that black individuals, especially in the south by by white people. Yeah, There was still a little bit of that. I mean, you got some of it at the ball perps. Uh, you know, there was some racial epithets, you know, Insults shouted at you. Sometimes. From my from the bleachers out in left field. You might hear something, Uh, It wasn't regular. But here and there, you know that existed. I mean, it still does. Today, It still happens and it's uh it's really a shame the other. There's so much hatred and In a lot of people on this issue has been going on for so long. And, uh, it's really scary. You know, you know what's happening. What the capitals that is that many angry people out there. You know that overthrow the government and change things that it was this really Is really frightening. This p. What's going on? The great Roy White between 1965 in 1979 became one of more popular New York Yankees of all time. And then when you get to the Yanks and made a lot of your good bodies, Roy were white men like Bobby Murcer. No, was a good friend of yours and Like they always remember the story. Bucky Dent tells me it every year when Thurman Munson passed away when his plane crashed and all you guys, of course with devastated But if I'm correct, you were very, very tight. Back then with Bobby Mercer. Yes. Yeah. Thurman Thurman and I sat next to each other in the locker room. He our lockers were side by side. And what was that? Ryan? How do you know that? Yeah, the last the last to elect of lockers on the left side. You know, as you went in the last two were right before you got to the trainer's room. Thurman at the last one, and I had the second to the last one. The very last locker. He always put his catcher's equipment is low, So we became very good friends way, sat together on a lot of plane flights and then had dinner together many times. You know, you talked about his His family. You know, Dick family man and talked about what he was gonna do. When he got out of baseball, You know how he wanted to develop shopping centers and Canton, Ohio. And, uh, Mercer. Now you know, we came up together. So we were friends, You know, being rookies on the Yankees in 1965 when we got called up, And then when he came back and 68 so therefore, Bobby, he he called me his his own hitting instructor. He always used to say that what he was doing wrong. You know what? He got this love, Roy. Watch me. What am I doing? Yeah, yeah. Getting out on the front side, you know? Yeah, I would try to tell about Yeah, You're you know, getting on your front foot too. Too early. You know, you gotta hold back a little longer and stuff so Yeah, It's sad to lose both of those guys. You know, they were closed and you know, they're both of left too early. You know, from the baseball scene, no doubt about it. No doubt the Roy Hilton white former Yankee great that Name to two All Star teams during his career. Roy White. No conversation about You know, the black civil rights movement, especially with the baseball player would be complete, especially a guy who played for the New York Yankees. If we didn't talk about Jackie Robinson now he lived in New York City while you were a Yankee. Did you know him? And what about his legacy and how it impacted you during your baseball career? Yeah, I measured against several times. You know, at some dinners in the off season, you know, back when I'm going first came up with the Yankees in the early sixties, Uh, met his wife later on that it's um, benefits and some golf tournaments and up a great guy to talk to, uh, Uh, Dr. Respect him tremendously for what he did when we were kids. We all know about Jackie. You know, I grew up out in Compton, California. And we knew about the Dodgers and Jackie Robinson. And and what do you have to go through and what he had to endure? You know, so the guys like us could get to the big leagues. So so that was a great throw when I got a chance to meet with Jackie Last one, Roy and again I can't thank you enough for getting up at 6 a.m. for me this morning. You really are a good friend of sorry, But you've been so wonderful this morning so wonderful. You guys got swept in the World Series in 1976 by Cincinnati and that really pissed off your old boss George Steinbrenner. She went on. He got a guy named Reggie Jackson and the next two years after that, the summers of 1977 in 1978. You guys were World Series champions, Beating the Los Angeles Dodgers into Great World Series with the Dodgers suffered their own laws last week when they're great manager Tommy Lasorda. Passed away What? We have memories in the other dugout of Tommy Lasorda with those great Dodger teams. Yeah, he was quite a character. No doubt about that. Ah! Very good sense of humor. You know, he was the guy you're gonna be around and was always gonna have you laughing about something. You know, He had a lot of good baseball stories to tell. So so that was a big thrill. You know for me, you know, growing up in Los Angeles and getting a chance to play against him in two world Syriza's Uh, with my my parents, you know, in the stands, Wow. And it also playing against my my little league buddy Reggie Smith. We both played the same little league out in Compton. And went to the same high school. So so that was great, and I'm beating them in those two times. He was a great plan. But it has that dream..

"You way are celebrating an okay day here on the Bernie and sit show in a big way, form a giant superstars O J. Anderson and let it marshal will be here as well as Councilman Robert Corner G. Alveda King. She was just on Fox News. The niece, of course of Martin Luther King, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams ahead of the P A. L. Fred Watts, where we start with a guy that I really, really love and so do most New Yorkers between 1965 in 1979. He became one of the more popular New York Yankees. Of all time, All Star games in 1969 and 1970, Of course, part of those great Yankee teams that beat the Dodgers to win the World Series and the summers of 1977 and 1978. Here he is. The Great Roy White Roy. Good morning, sitting Bernie, How are you, pal? Oh, Roy. Like I said on Lee, you what? I only you when I get up. It's six in the morning to be on the Children. 30. I know. I texted Bernie, Wait a couple days ago. What time to get up in the morning? He said seven. I said Well, Monday getting up at 60. My God. Brutal. Right, Roy. Thank you, Roy. And again, New York loves you and you were such a great Yankee and Such an important part of those teams as they got better and better, eventually got Reggie Jackson and won the World Series. But before we get there talking about Martin Luther King, you know was a young black man in Los Angeles Growing up and What it was like. And then, of course, there's a story that when you play double a baseball for the Yankees, the name of the team were the Yankees Confederate team, and you are a Confederate flag on your jersey. But back then you had no idea what the symbolism was. And it didn't matter because you knew about the racial strife. Just growing up in Los Angeles. When you look back now wearing a Confederate flag, double a baseball for the Yankees. What was that? Like? Uh, w I never even thought about that. You know, being down in Columbus, Georgia, and it was the Columbus Confederate Yankees was the name of the team. And when you're 18 years old, and you just happy to have a uniformed and be playing baseball, you know, trying to get to the major leagues. And you certainly couldn't have done much to protest it in those days. I mean, you know Who was I to come out and start speaking out about where? The Confederate thing you know, the Confederate flag on the uniforms? I would I would have been out of baseball quickly, You know, Release do something so So it was really kind of ridiculous. You know that. You know, I got interviewed about that a long time ago. You know, several years ago, and that's why I told the guys and you know what is an 18 year old kid's gonna know about. You know, we're in the uniform of the Confederate flag on it. You know, no doubt. Roy White on the burning such a former Yankee great sensibilities. Uh, it's etcetera have changed since then. But Roy would tell us about Martin Luther King. You were a Yankee. Obviously, before the civil rights legislation, then the civil rights legislation passed Martin Luther King had, you know everything to do with all that. And then he gets assassinated in 1968. Do you remember where you were and how you felt the night he got assassinated? Uh, I don't Remember exactly where I was, but, uh You know, I experienced a lot of the, uh, the segregation in the south. You know my first my four years in the minor leagues for the Yankees from 1962. Until 1965. And in those seasons, I never stayed in the same hotel. With my team. Wow! In those four years that's always had to stay in the home on the other side of town. And and some of those places weren't too good. Sometimes we're, uh some of the black players had to stake And actually for me. It was better than the guys that came up before. For me, you know, faced a lot worse. Uh, racial insults and discrimination and all kinds of things so, But you know, things are slowly getting better, even in spring training with what the Yankees down in Florida. That wasn't able to get an apartment for my wife and I We had to stay in a home in the black section of town, you know, and then get a cab to go to the ballpark every day. So you know it took a while. But, you know, all because of Martin Luther King, you know, we're able to, uh Finally get some justice and, uh, got to stay with our teams. And you know things got better for so you know, everything was due to him, so it was Definitely a great blow. You know, Uh They hear about his death when that happened, But I don't know where I was. But when that happened, probably and in Jersey somewhere, but a very sad day. No doubt about it very said. So how do you feel today? The great Yankee Roy White, who's also a great man, and I'm proud to call him a friend of mine. Roy When you hear LeBron James yelling and screaming, how he plays basically for slave owners, and he's making about a billion dollars or Colin Kaepernick out there yelling and screaming. I mean, these guys get to stay at five star hotels. They stayed with white players say they tried the fanciest cars and you're talking about how when you were a minor leaguer. You couldn't even travel with your teammates. So when you hear these guys speak, what do you think? In one? You could be honest. What do you think it No, I give credit for LeBron James. Where's for trying to make a difference in society? You know, he's spoken out on a lot of issues and, uh and Colin Kaepernick. I may not agree with the way he's going about With things. But, uh, you know, they were in a position to make people listen to him so I know..

One of player he was an All star back in 1969 in 1970. Then, of course, is on those two Yankee teams that beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 1977 in 1978. The Dodgers lost their great manager of those clubs, Tommy Lasorda, couple of weeks, so we'll talk to Roy White. But all that stuff and boy did you have to deal with racism in the early 19 sixties and the Yankees minor league organization and, of course, going up in Los Angeles, so Roy is going to be a terrific guest coming up. About done about 10 minutes and Bernie's old excited today because he's got his told Biden Jersey. Ready to go 20 Day morning, Right? Joseph R. Biden. Well rocking that jersey that is, uh, I'm going to infiltrate the supporters of job I know. Am I excited about it? Not in the least. But you know, the latest news is that the president is, of course not going to attend the inauguration. He's not even going to receive Joe Biden at the White House. I tell you Well, what I mean No, no, no. Said whatever. I've been right every single time. But after what I After what's transpired, for example, Joe Biden's calls for unity, even though he has not said to Nancy Pelosi and these people, listen, forget about the impeachment is AH, lot of some of our guests. Esteemed guests have suggested he do. That would that would actually be a called for unity and expression that he really means. Let's unify, however. S o. The president was will not go. He will not receive job and this is the read These other reports. Nobody knows for sure. And he's going to have a 21 gun salute at Andrews Air Force Base as he exits Washington, D. C during the inauguration on Wednesday. But the violence by the way that was predicted and warned about over the weekend at the Capitals in the 50 states, and all that stuff never materialized, And some tells me that the there over playing the whole like Washington D. C thing is ridiculous. First of all, nothing's gonna happen because they've got enough. Gorge there an army folks there to win a war. I mean, forget about those folks that showed up a couple of Wednesdays ago. Show up this week. They ain't gonna be no riot, and then they use the same national guard type people that they were being they were. They were actually furious that when the president and others wanted to send him into cities to to quell some of the riots now they're like, you know, done a complete 1 80. It's great to have him and if they would have been very useful last year, Excuse me four years ago during the president's inauguration, when Antifa thugs were actually beating the crap out of people in the streets, and of course, they would have said that this president is Well, they would have accused him of being a dictator and militarizing this that the other But whatever. So it's going to be that way on the Wednesday Joe Biden, it's gonna be a virtual inauguration. You know what we were? What Lady Gaga singing the national anthem should be good and a few other. Let's see celebrities J. Lo, Tom Hanks or whatever the hell Yeah, obviously Ping. Okay, I will be sleeping already. We got the other big NFL weekend. We just saw that to the Saturday the Packers beat the Rams and the Bills beat the Ravens and then on Sunday, Kansas City, they lost their star quarterback Patrick Mahomes Toe a concussion, The backup quarterback Chad Henny was able to hold down as the Chiefs held off the Browns and Tom Brady. Now, when his 14th championship game first one as a member of the Buccaneers, they win in Wallens as may be the end of June Breeze career, so the games are all separate Sunday for the right to go to the Super Bowl. The NFC side has Brady and the Bucks at Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at 305, and then you get the bills at Kansas City at six. 40 here Is Jim in Brooklyn. Bernard Online one. Good morning, Jimmy. Hey, Good morning, fellas. April the 4th 1968 received my draft notice. I'm going in the army. April 23rd I take my date to their new Madison Square garden. The old Garden up on 50th. The nature is like my second home. Where for 50 cents. I got an MBA doubleheader way. Go to the game. That night. Grange is 13 to 1. By the way.

That crazy crazy night Dr. King got killed. Wow. How about that? Yeah, I kind of in the back of my head. Remembered as well was a tough time to be a white kid in the projects back in after Bart Luther King because there were riots believing in God, and they had a lot of angry, justifiably angry black people, but Sometimes they may have taken it out on the wrong people like you like me, right. Quick call before the great Roy White. Here's Ted. He's in Forest Hills online to this morning. Good morning, Ted. Thank you so much. What I want to hear life is sacred. I want to hear a black realist. Mean schmuck comes over from Europe and does better than any Afro American. That's been here for 400 years. I don't want black kids to be tortured to be told they're dumb. They're not dumb, but only a realist must talk. You must not get married early.

You were for people list thing who are of a certain age or not of a certain age. You were at the game where Mickey Mantle in his 5/100 home run, correct. Yes, Yes, yes. Brought me to tears sitting. My friend Todd may So I went to school with was a schoolmate lived on the eighth floor of my building. I lived on the third floor. On his birthday was May 13th. On DH. We're both make it I was made 27. His dad got him, Uh, tickets to the Yankees on May 13th. 1967 for his birthday on DH. I got invited, and I remember that season because now result and well, he wasn't really old trick Sanders, but he was hurt. On not having productive years seasons anymore. 65 I think was his last 300 season 30 homerun year, so 67 now and he was struggling. Finish the season for 96. I remember we knew we had tickets for May 13th about three months before the season started, so I had a very difficult Position. I was in a very difficult position. Of wanting to see Mantle hit a home run every time it came up, but I only wanted him to hit three on my game. When he got out. He had three fairly early. I believe so I had to root against him, which was what do I still feel like I betrayed something peope, You know, Tio Ah to pull that off. Sure Enough figures against the Orioles. Yeah, And I was sitting on the 1st 1st base side. And he pulled one, of course about 12 rows deep, right field seats. He also hit a single, uh, we went to before, So it was a good day that day. But it made me it made brought tears to my eyes were cheering. It's used limping around the bases, and he was a great uh there's a great um uh, thing to have witnessed The I love to ask athletes this and I love the answers When I tell them like I say, Like I asked Bernie Williams, if you close your eyes, Can you still feel the ball hitting your glove for the final out of the world? Serious things like that you close your eyes. Can you still feel the sensation of standing up and watching that ball go over the fence? Oh, yeah. No. Yeah, no, Never. I'll never forget that the first time one I ever saw. I still remember because my father picked me up and we're along the left field. I'm sorry. The right field. Seats. Next I was in the right field. I was down the third baseline from Mantle from runs straight angle on it. And I was on the first base side kind of in the mezzanine with a Bit of Ah, overhang for the 62 world Serious Game five. On my father picked me up and I still see it. I can see her right now. Tom Trash hit a high floating line drive that went well into the right field seats for the go ahead home run in the eighth inning. And that was the first one I saw on that man was, you know, still pretty early in my home runs count. Andi. I just remember specifically wanting it show bathroom, knowing how he gets his home runs, especially left handed. You know that I pictured it before it happened. That would've been nice if he kind of got a hold of one that went up for deck, but I was very happy with with a line drive. You know, he's on two strikes level swing a little bit not shooting from the field so much, and that's when those line drives. Line drive home runs happened. I'm not sure what the count was, but I do remember that flight of the ball. Yeah. What's the where somebody You went to some World Series games obviously mentioned 2000 going with your with your infant daughter. What a savory other favorite. Ah, memories of going to games. Well, 60 62 way had we had tickets to 63. But I remembers five or six where they I just swept the Yankees and four but know where they were. There must have been in l A. So we must have Gans tickets to Game six. I don't think they went back and forth through 56 and seven in those days, so I don't remember. But we didn't see any game and 60 for the Yankees lost the Cardinal's seven. We did not have tickets. And then you know, and then the drought, then the thie hardship the years of hardship when you had Teo root for horrors. Clark and Gene Michael, too Try to get over the 2 32 40 number. We lost ours.

I want him to talk to me a little bit about who you are Is Clark was a player because he always seems to kind of get labeled in this awful Yankees era. But they play in the big leagues for 10 years. He wasn't that bad of a ballplayer. You know, he was all right. He was alright. Get he supplied some of one of my favorites. Moment. I'm pretty sure the stars Clark, right. How long did he play for 65 to 74? I believe 74 so it couldn't have been 74 say I don't know. And I remember sitting in the upper deck along third base side. With a few friends on hard.

Was he? A great player in all of Famer was he had money? A park? I know, but On the week of his passing. Let's just remember it that he played 10 years. The major leagues played for the New York Yankees played almost every day between 67. And 73. He never played fewer than 143 games. Ah, took more bats and anybody you know again, he's kind of a symbol of some bad Yankee teams. But it's unfortunate to be labeled that way. You don't play that long in the big leagues. If you don't have some ability, and it's nice that Roy White was able to share some memories of him as a ball player and his friend, you know, back in the day before. Before union contracts.

"Card. It's all from your flagship station. For the New York Yankees baseball, the fan. My wife. Uh, What a round of a 32 out here the night that the Yankees are down by two. Fans are going wild and the ball game. That's one of 160 career home runs and one of 1803 career hits. Sounds pretty memorable to me as we continue our virtual old timers Day we're joined by Roy White Roy. Remember that when it's a game tying homer from 1977 and you passed Phil Rizzuto on the Yankees hit list. I remember that. Well, that was off a Bill Campbell. In the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs. And it was the only time I felt like I was gonna hit a home run. Here goes the Priorat bad. I kind of just missed what I really felt great as I could get one more chance. You know, I could probably hit on as the only man but actually happened, Man, Roy. It's great to hear your voice so usually see an old timer's day. And since we can't all be there together, figure we bring it to everybody on the radio. So it's nice to hook up with you on the phone for this one. Not great to be on. You know, I really missed. That we don't have the old timers game this year that had my hopes up until about a late April. May I could see that it probably wasn't gonna happen. So this thing and all the guys you know that everybody comes together than in it. It's a great experience, so You're not going to be on with you today. You know, Roy, It's been a tough week. Ah, listen, you live in this area and you tell me yesterday that you know power got knocked out for days and days and Ah, ah lot of people dealing with the same thing. But you lost a teammate and not just the teammate Horace Clark was was one of your closest friends on the team in the late sixties and early seventies. Yeah, you know, after I signed it started coming up to the Organization, You know, horse was always Like two steps ahead of me in the classifications like when I was in deep ball. He was probably already in B or a. So once I got up to the higher elevations of minor league baseball. You know, we became friends and Probably around the I guess around 1964 you know, and we roomed in spring training. Several times and then he was in Tripoli and I got the double E. And finally, he already had got up to the club from Tripoli. Then I joined the club in at the tail end of 1965. And you know every room together then. So, so we're roommates for like four or five years. With the Yankees and became very good friends, real great guy. And you were telling me you guys used to share a love of music together and take music on the road with you is a lot different 1965 than it is in 2020 isn't it? Yeah, Our common denominator was was jazz, music and Latin jazz. And one of our favorite artists was Cal Jader played the vibes. And chorus really loved. That ended up after he got out of baseball, learning how to play the vibes and having his own bands about that, But we used to carry the portable record players back in the day and we had the The 12 inch records that you know the knows no CDs. No Walkman, no digital stuff a bit. Wow, you, can you, Roy, Can you shed some light on the kind of player that Horace Clark was because he kind of gets a bad rap. Sometimes when you You know, when you think about that era of the late sixties early seventies, and the Yankees were between championship eras. It's not viewed as a very Fonda part of Yankees history, and it's always kind of thrown around as the Horace Clark era, but it sounds very derogatory. But here's a guy who played almost what 10 years in the big leagues. Right. Ah! It's really kind of an unfair rap that they picked out a horse. Like a scapegoat or to be the face of the Yankees during that time, probably from 1965 up until 1974. And you know horses. Really? It was a good, steady ballplayer. You know, he came out every day, ready to play. You know, never begged out of the lineup. Plate. Ah, almost every game basically play 100 55 games, he'd be out there. Ah it to 60 probably lifetime or close to around 2 60 I could steal a base for you. Ah, one particular year broke up 33 no hitters in the eighth or ninth innings. So he was really underrated him and they talk about defense's, but him and Gene Michaels led the American League and double plays. I believe, 1970. No, kiddo. Ah, Yeah, you could look it up. You 2 69 70 They were up there, so ah, so it was really not fair wrapped in the you know, I feel badly for him. It seemed to come on. You know, during those years, it wasn't said much then. But towards the end and all of a sudden they jumped on horse and and made him kind of a scapegoat. So So it was really an unfair label that they got on it. He? Ah. He finished twice, first in the league and double plays turned by a second baseman, 69 32 are 1236 years in a row as ah, As the leading assist man as a second baseman. Fours leading put out man So mean, hit the bars when you're getting out Yeah. So you know if you're a guide was supposed to bail out on the double play, So there was a wrap that you know that horse would like a lot of the double play. Get out of the way because he didn't want to get taken out. How could you hit him and taking double plays? If you're bailing out of the double play situation, so So? So it was a lot better than you know. Then what has noted really? Dad averaged about 20 steals a year. Is you talking about between six arriving in 72 So Ah, yeah. Listen and condolences to you and to Horace's family..

So now I gotta rush home back over my stuff. And get my my wife, Gretchen together to go with me because she was six months pregnant. OK, 56 months pregnant. So we throw everything in the back of the car with your stuff. When we start driving from Random West Virginia think rainy monsters from Random Virginia. The place was unincorporated. No police department, sleeping trailers. Sleeping. Traded with a shotgun right next to them in the bed has two story. I mean, if this plane was rough Jumped in our car and we started driving towards the Pittsburgh OK, so well, you know, It's like one of two in the morning. I feel cup like cough behind me, and I'm going on, man. I'm trying. Probably speeding a little bit like two. No one. Nobody was out. But I try to get to Pittsburgh as quick as I can You imagine climbing, getting quoted a big league. I'm like I got to go. So I guy pulls me over some things. Not just okay, son, you've been you've been You know, being a little bit slow down, Give me a ticket, and I'll be on my way. He tells me that I got to go to this little telegraph to the precinct. And I'm like, Wait a minute. You mean like when I go to the big leagues right now to get called? I'll pay you $500 for a speed. Just let me go on and keep going and willing. What time what time a night was 2 30 in the morning. Okay, so so he takes me to this place and where we're going through this little backwoods place Whatever. I'm going through all these bushes and I'm looking at my wife going. You know what? We're gonna die. We're gonna die. I just I was just terrified that that this guy was going to do anything I'm like, Why are you taking me to some prison? I just with a speeding ticket or whatever. Okay? So, so, you know, we get to this little places like maybe no bigger than a closet. It was like a little olding, Phil And the guy you know, pulled me in you, you know, made me pay cash right there for the tickets. I didn't hear what it was. And I just got out of there quick as I could, man, but we wouldn't care if I looked at my wife and again. She's six months pregnant. I'm thinking myself. Oh, my gosh. I just make a U turn here. Just hightail out here was with him in a smart move, but obviously you know why That was so I went there and I just Big fly upside relief when I gave him the cash and I want left their place of some some guys sitting in the holding cell there. You looked like, you know, he was drunk. But anyway, the bottom line is I've got a quick as I can. We got to Pittsburgh. I don't know. I must've got it like that. We have that morning. Obviously. And the clapping with somewhere in Georgia, where because stops, so we we would just ride and we finally got there early enough to get a little sleep. And then we went to the ball park, but that was my first big league bound by Highway Patrol guy. And at the time I said, Oh, my God, I don't know what's going to happen here because I didn't realize Wait a minute. You just give me a ticket and I'll slow down. We'll move on. But it didn't work out that way. But I got a bunch of those kind of stories going back to the minor leagues, Guys when you go to a little town in the South, man, you know it wasn't always picnic. Nothing like Jackie wasn't like a lot of guys like Roy White guys that go to like that stuff. Hank Cameron, but I experienced a match stuff. That's not it's not a lot of fun will add. That's scary. And it's crazy to you. You know what? They reminded me of you telling that story. Have you seen the movie? Mississippi Burning? Yeah, okay. That's what it reminds me of beginning beginning of that movie. Okay, you see the year? Well, lights going on in back of you, You know, early in the morning Me, That's that's crazy, Anna and listen, That's you know, that's something that I can't go through and Sweeney can't go through. You know, that's you know, a cz they say driving while black. Okay, That's Sze in. It's scary. It's definitely scary. And and then I was back in 1975 a day, you know, I still get profiled and pulled over and most people You know, they don't think that you know, he's really Randolph. You know, we know And they don't realize that happens in a lot of times. You have to kind of suck it up and don't talk about those share it. You talk about yourself some time with some of the guys and stuff about the most part. Is it very demoralizing. Very frustrating and again. Like I said I had all this time. You know, you wouldn't think that we still be kind of in this place in this country. Will you wear that thing like, are these kind of conversations CC Sabathia, Talk of the day about having conversations like this. You know, with any of his team with Brett Gardner, Onyx, Any other teammate when you're in your clubhouse? Are these conversations you're having with guys like, you know Dave Winfield or Mickey Rivers air having with Don Mattingly and Ron Audrey. What's what kind of thing? What's the dynamic where you're able to openly talk about this with your teammates? Yeah, it depends on the group of guys. You know, we know usually The guys are pretty open back in today, Guys like Ron, get Gery who was my brother who We should talk all the time that he's from Louisiana and hey, grew up around a lot of that environment. So you know, he was always very open and honest about that. You know, one field can be senior. Yeah. The brothers would always talk about stuff like that. Because, you know, we all experienced the same thing. You know, with that, at times back in the days, it will be more of a whisper, You know, because you always felt like, you know, you want people to think that you were you the militant or you were trying to start a potter. You're angry, so you have to suppress them and stuff. But it wasn't fair and we needed to express it so we would go out. Have a few beers and talk amongst ourselves every once in a while. Uh, today, kids are a little more open about it. I think you know, I've talked to you know, like, you know, some of the kids that come to the clubhouse hang on Robbie Yakuza's office a lot. Not the case. Come today and we'll sit down. We'll talk about different issues, and they seem to be really open minded. The kids today are a little bit more into the culture and you know as far as hip hop culture with the music and then the way these guys style and hang out, so they're really open minded to it, And you don't hear it is much because again as a coach, you're not really right on top of what the guys are talking about. But when I was coming up through through baseball, we talked about it quite a bit. And and and even guys like Don Mattingly and guys that that that I felt really comfortable with, you know, I would always be free and open with them. And they were always very receptive. Willie Randolph.

"He's still young. But it's all about greed, I want I want. Was spring training. Start. No, you're you're right. And I you know, I think five years is a good number. But the money is probably going to be more like thirty. I wouldn't pay because thirty five years. What am I telling Gary Sanchez? What am I dealing Karen? What am I telling? So you're gonna tell them you your time will come because you know, you look at what you paid him. You know, you're gonna get more the eggs had to figure out what are you going to squeeze all the guys on the the one salary roof? Because the thing is that right now on paper I could win. But you got right now. But beckham. I am not comfortable. I mean, I love cats. You got you resign? Another pitcher. That was good. But the problem is that everybody's saying, well, they got the big time full time now people now singing, and I've heard you Tony tonight. Five out of a starting pitching. Thoughts. Because my God blesses foam is still alive and you still pitching coach he would get seven. We all know. Yankee. Injury. But you gotta you gotta remember nobody's doing that anymore. Yeah. Couple years ago. Yes. We equality starts eighty seven innings. Now. It's five we if you have a loaded bullpen, and I think a lot of teams want to have a lotta bullpen. The first game of the year. Severino goes five hundred third bullpen is up and running. He could probably go seven, but they don't want them to. Then you gotta conundrum when you get to the postseason. Now, you want your bullpens tired, and you expect these pictures to go seven they can't let's go to Bob and Tom Bob you're on the fan. Hey, how you doing? All right, man. Are you? Okay. Looking at the radar here. It shows pretty good condition. Feel all of central New Jersey is still Driza bone very nice now no precipitation, and I was just outside a few minutes ago. And it's thirty four thirty five degrees. So I don't know. I think you'll be okay. Doesn't look like there's much coming in from the west either pug later today. And the Snell has been melted then washed away. There's no snow ear anything like that. It's just rain coming down now. Okay. So appreciate it. I think it'd be okay. You know, the you're talking about these big contracts these agents in order to get the clients the big clients like hopper and Machado. They oversold. They oversold what they could do. And you know, what you and your Machado was like in those guys and harmony will wait a minute. I mean, I thought you said you knew the market, you know, here it is pitches and catches are here already. I gotta be there soon. But I don't know where I'm going. Well, you know, the other thing too was they got an offer right at the very start. Then you're three hundred million bucks a year for ten years. And that wasn't a he turned it down. Because I think that was from the nationals. I think that Boris had told them. Yeah. I can get you ten years thirty million a year and the Yankees. Yeah. There's only there's only so many teams that can you know? Take on that kind of financial responsibility. Some teams like, you know, I I don't need a right fielder. I Don I got my feel set. I don't need it. I said earlier in in the winter if it could have figured out a way to move Stanton to the dodgers, then you wanna go because okay, maybe replacing one for the other maybe the contract fits, but you've got a left handed bat now it again ki- stadium. Because they still use of. Yeah. But they're not, you know, it's anybody anybody right now, there's not teams I can't believe there's people fighting ten years and three hundred million. They're fighting for that one two year deal, you know, some- somewhere between thirty and thirty five billion a year. Let's go to Austin in Jersey City Austin what's going on. Hey, tony. Hey, what's up? I got a quirky. Frank Robinson story for you. Okay. I lose I grew up in lower Manhattan, Chelsea and background seventy-one. Some guy had tickets. The Yankees they were playing the Orioles at night. And I I got seats. Right. Feel able to roll over the because back then you know, that wasn't a big deal. Get right. You can roam whatever it wasn't. And the place is pretty empty was a night game. And it was fly ball hit. And my way, in fact, Roberson stuck his arm out, you know, in towards the seats. You know that that was the time when the the right field central for like three feet high or something. And I thought afterwards not that. I thought beforehand to do anything like this and morally wouldn't do something like this. No, am I stupid. But I wanted one. Post on his arm jumped him and kept him from. What would it would? I have made it out of the hospital or were there have been been had a one way trip to the morgue. Baltimore New York. Ron Robinson wouldn't have taken too kindly to it. Yeah. Did he fall into the stands? No, he extended his arm. He caught it. And I was about three feet away from him. You know? And I I didn't I didn't say that. I didn't I didn't say anything no inclination to say anything. I'm not one of those people. You know? I was just looking at the fly ball say, oh, he's got beat on this. You know? And and I was thinking afterwards. You know, also wondering if that if that was filmed, if if all we're all games filmed at that time 'cause that was at the time that was prior to the purchase by Steinberg those to CBS ownership. Right. So I don't know. I'm thinking this little silly fantasy that could possibly see myself, though, the lighting wasn't that great at that time. And you know, the most. It might have been on TV. They saved it though. Right. I remember there was a game. Remember reading about it. 'cause I listen to it on the radio they ROY ROY white hit a shot to right field. And Frank Robinson jumped in the stands in quarter and fell and somebody said the ball popped out of his glove. But he, you know, but just you remember how would it be? Got gotta be sixty seven sixty eight something this is prior to the Orioles because he was like seventy seventy one when when you when you went to your wheels. They went to sixty six really. Yeah. To what? One in sixty nine seventy seventy one I think he was gone seventy two seventy three. I think it was somebody when I was there. So I would have caught him right toys towards the end of his tenure. But you know, it was interesting little experience that they had there. And he's thinking back in retrospect, just one of those quick. It's not a to anybody else. But it's one of those little plastic experiences. A stays, you know, anyway, it's great always and people do that. I remember that. Because I remember the picture have peaking his head up from behind the the the wall. What does Adolf looking up and he was holding the ball? Somebody said now the ball popped up, but nobody's no-one pies. Thought let's go to Paul in Norwalk Paul you're on the fan. Hey, Tony this whole Bryce Harper. Manny Machado thing with know. I can see the Mets offering you know, these guys contract. And granted it doesn't have to be you know, a multi year contract. You can say, hey, I'm you know, a three year contract. I guarantee you. Whether it's thirty thirty five forty million dollars. But I one at one year, right? The two year coming here. I expect you to win the World Series now as a fan or as as Brody bringing them in. And the thing is like, do you think? You know, is it really off the wall to say, hey, look want you vote you want you to come in, you know, hundred and five. But you're only gonna get guaranteed forty million. Because after the first year, you know, God forbid, if you don't wanna get hurt because everybody seems to get hurt, you know, and you know, is insurance going to cover something like that. You know, like, you know. Well, I tell you this much this is all going to be guaranteed. It doesn't matter. If it's ten years a one years, it's everything's guaranteed. You know, he's not going to be like football money. It's you want you want to pay for forty four wanna give us forty million as forty million. He gets hurt. The first day is forty million. You'll get talk about insurance all you want. But now, he's these guys, you know, baseball. God bless him. You love a sport.

I know we got off the beaten path real quick on those Stottlemyre on a down note passed away seventy seven years old or seventy six seventy seven, and I remember growing up and watching the Yankees, and you know, I didn't mind him so much because they suck back then when they had horse Clark at second ROY white with that goofy stance in right field. And you know, they weren't a great team. Bobby Mercer always like. Horse had a great glove, but it was afraid to turn the double play they're nine. And then.

And now he's the other thing because people remember the D H would started in the early seventies. But before you know, that rule came into place Stottlemyre was one of the pretty good hitting pitchers in the American League. He actually had one game that he went five he had five hits in nineteen sixty five and also had an inside the park grand slam. Wow. He's kids. Todd was also a pretty good hitter. Jesse was yes, he was he had seven career home runs a five-time all-star. And again, you're talking about the era where the Yankees sucked. Yeah. And you know. There weren't very many.
