Honestly you go here you see a heart for you go over here and you see a new shopping center. That's coming out like they're really trying to improve the overall feel of Sacramento. So I am Initially dreamed to Sacramento. You know it's it's funny. This'LL BE I. Think my seventeenth season in Minor League Baseball and a fifteen that. I've that I've worked for when I look back at some of the early days. Two thousand one. I think was my first internship when I was in college the Sacramento. It started in two thousand. And it was just man's team is awesome in in Sacramento and refused later. I was finished in graduate school at Baylor and looking for opportunities. And I was doing other internship with the Memphis Club. And there's a lot of animosity towards Sacramento towards the river cats. Because of how good they were in that they were doing things. So well and in Memphis was really good at that. Time IN NEW BALLPARK. Same time is Sacramento. But just couldn't keep in Texas in Tennessee and then and then Tacoma Washington and and Sacramento always you know one of the top teams beat a midwest kid always wanted to get out of the snow and Away southen in West so I always thought that in California would be a great place to be and really up in Tacoma. I got to know the owners the savage family. The owners of the river cats a similar league meetings in I started seeing why the team was so successful. You know having a family owned small business in Hollywood to be great and what they did but they wanna make a huge impact on the community sort of seeing some of that secret sauce in that intrigued me in a year later when when I finally said. Okay we're GONNA check out you know seriously what's going on down there. My wife and I flew down for an interview. She's northwest girl. Thought there's no way she. She's leaving Seattle or Portland. We got down here in the sunshine and and the people a feels. I don't know for me and forgive me for those of You. That are are from south Southern California that may be listening. But I had this L. A. Thing in my mind all of California I didn't realize northern California is completely different in just a gem of a place in a hidden secret in Sacramento. It's completely different than San Francisco's as well and so for us. We Love the outdoors. You know. We Love Nice warm weather sunshine. The you know we're recording this seventy three degrees out at the end of February two beautiful day. We'd love hiking we love. You know the the wine culture the culture around here so close to Lake. Tahoe on my drive home in the evenings. I can see the snow covered. Mountains surreally is the best. Everything's that's a long answer but it just gives you an idea of of always knew the good things were going on on the business side in swords out here and then when when my wife and I came to experience firsthand and we we fell in love with the community the people in everything that the Sacramento has to offer. And I think there's there's something to be said about that. An organization like the river. Cats come in you guys are here in Sacramento. You call yourselves. A was a high profile. Small Bits yes in so that people have access to you access to the players. They can feel that they can get to know them before they may take the step to the next level before they really just developed more in their careers while also being successful in being in their backyard. What that community feel for you guys being Sacramento in your eyes. What you what is the value and the impact that you're bringing city as the river and Jonathan Oman? If I could go back and tell my backstory first of all I if I go back I think my background. I think my brings typical. And and I've learned more atypical around. I need to share it now. Hopefully by sharing I can inspire other people. But but when you when you hear you understand why community and giving back is so important for me in in wine. Love Marley baseball so much in cycle backyard. I grew up in a single parent. Family home on welfare. My mom came through a bad in and wanted to pursue her her education in in. So you know in prayer and because of her faith she she said. Hey I'm going to pick up and move part three boys to Burbenay Illinois small small town about an hour south of Chicago away from family She didn't have a job she'd been a stay at home mom but she believed in education so so she she took on school loans in debt so should go to school during the day. And this is Undergrad. This isn't this isn't a higher education and then she was cleaning toilets at night in warehouse. Try again's means so. I think I was five years old at that time when we moved from Ohio to a small town Illinois the youngest pre boys. I never had anything. New was all hand-me-downs stuff in oftentimes shoes. Maybe a size too big but my my brother had grown up on so I got him next in and it was really our church and teachers at school with food drives for our family did clothing drives. They saw what my mom was trying to do. They saw a need. My brothers and I had been so at that point just realized anything any opportunity to escape. That situation was was great. So sports was an outlet for my brothers and I. I ended up playing sports and having success spores and was able to play baseball a small private school holiday Nazarene University in such a blessing in if you fast forward. My Mom completed her degree. She got the school she started working there at olive head. They paid for her masters and her doctorate. Our family has nine degrees for the price of one in Wales brothers working on a second doctorate. It'll probably be ten degrees for that price of one. My Mom's become the first woman vice president in that school's history so it's a great story. What is was finishing school. College trying decide what I wanted to do. I knew I love baseball but I looked in the mirror in realize at five nine one hundred and fifty five pounds. My career was any quickly on a bigger better. Figure out something else to do it so I turned to an internship. The cubs and white sox wanted insurance in January. Because I was playing baseball I could start until May or June under the a single eighteen Kane county cougars outside of Chicago. This said Hey will come up here. We'll put you to work. I started working in Minor League Baseball and I saw the family friendly affordable opportunity it provided people to have that excape That my family was looking for. We grew up. I got to know that the GM they're pretty well. I I would ask him questions as often as I couldn't learn but his job and I saw how he had he was able to impact the community to the platform that the team put him on in. That really intrigued me in so when when I think about Marley baseball on the opportunity we have to impact our communities to to give back always have tickets more portable than than the movie theater. I I love that because it resonates with me and how I wrote and I want a young man young woman that that was my shoes growing up to be able to go to a ball game in how good time I want that single parent mom to be able to take her kids out. You know. Maybe it's only once a year but but that's that's an important opportunity for them to get together and spend that time together and so that that just fuels you know what I do and again back to. The family owns a river cats again. They've gone through trials as well in Susan our CEO. She lost her husband in two thousand nine and he told her. Don't sell the team. You can do this I just. That's the beauty is is. There's there's so. There's so many stories behind the people running businesses in in sports teams in it. I'm trying to more and more. I'm trying to tell the story of of of the savage family in the way I grew up again trying to inspire others to help move people in this community to to share their story and do more. Now I love that. There's there's the one thing that resonates as you're sitting in your chair right or you're out at the ballpark and you can see that night. You may see this young boy walking around the stadium and you know maybe he got in. Maybe a family friend etiquette or he added script the other ten dollars. He could be in your shoes one day and that's at the end of the day. That's the most impacting. If you could go out give this gin. The time of his life for one night even like that's going to impact the rest of his life. Accusa ballpark here's enough to think about whether it's bullied in school whether it's people making fun of way whether it's you know they don't have food for dinner like dread the game. You're watching them over here going to love it and now he can be inspired as I want to do this for the rest of my life. So is that really. What fuels you? It really isn't certainly a piece of. I'm aligning times. I said I wouldn't selfish dead on Gra motives. You know. It's it's fun doing what we do. But but you're pointing the end. It is about the people again when I'm asked about the best and worst part of my job. The best parts of people come here with big visions. Big Goals just like I did that. She those goals in. Maybe it's been promoted here or maybe we help them to go somewhere else. They've got a great opportunity yet. We don't want to hold them back. The worst part is is when people don't G. Those those goals for one reason or another and they leave here maybe disappointed in or maybe we asked him to leave in. That's reality is as well. But that's certainly the worst part but the highlights to your point I love it. I'm thinking through. I've had schools. High School asked me to come speak to some of their at risk kids. I love it I love. Share my story with them. I love to try and inspire them because I see so many of them were hoping there is and again if I can keep that hope going if I can help them come up with a vision for their life. Then that's awesome in the end. I'm going to be excited about that. Our Chapel does a good job every year. He'll work with at risk kids in. We've we've had conversations where he'll bring three or four groups out and I'll talk to him but then we also some the players who may have a similar story. I them the opportunity to share their stories with with these young men and young women as as well. So that's really is a driving force in very fulfilling part of job. Now that's good. I WANNA get into your business accomplishments on in a second but there's one thing that goes into what we've been saying that's the players if you haven't gotten into so you can impact the fans again back else. The true another aspect of it is impacting. The player lives. We were giving them this platform to be seen by thousands of people nationwide and take that next step to get to the Middle East to get the San Francisco giants. Now if there's a blockage to trade he could still get up there. You're impacting these players. Lives in. That's something that goes doesn't go unnoticed. But like you think of it. As a baseball player has everyday great or most of them come from bad bedrooms allowing come from other countries Dominican anywhere else to where Comey in Sacramento. Play for you guys is incredible stab at now. You have this platform to where you want to see them. Go to the majors. It's an accomplishment for you. It may be bad because you're losing your star player but you have to let go because at the daily that's the end goal for all guys. What is it like with a player you have on it in a credible prospect? He's shown for you. Guys that you have to let go is a bittersweet like you see the giants the next week is a bittersweet feeling. Lawsuit Guy. But he's in the majors so it's like yeah. Yeah it's it's certainly bitter sweet but again we we know our role in we know the giants are their job is to put the best team on the field as possible and we know that that means that our role. Here's provide a great facility for these players to work out to provide an environment where they are comfortable and and they're able to learn grow as as best. They can in so widely baseball so interesting because were separate organization. We're not owned by the San Francisco. Giants they make all the decisions on the players in we. Just try to provide the best experience possible while while they're here we try to get to know them as young men in find out to your point what they're interested in what their goals are. Hopping WE HELP THEM WITH. Try and work with our coaching staff to understand what they're trying to accomplish. They're trying to do in. Swing can help them as much as possible. In the end in the end the player does want be here in Sacramento. They they WANNA be in in San Francisco and so that that is interesting but along the way you get to know these players than in last year. We want Triple a national championship a first team in history to win three national championships so that was an awesome ride. And we got to know those guys. Vote is bittersweet when when they get caught up in but then you want to celebrate with them. Because that's a lifetime goal on final back. I mean the eight year old might yourself really wanted to play in the Big Leagues? Heck my forty year old self still wants to play in the big leagues so you remember that you want to celebrate with with those guys and been blessed enough to keep in contact with with some of them or if we go over to a giants game connect with someone named before after the game and just see how how things are gone and check in with them because they're certainly that that human side that that drives a motivates all of us yet for us and then the Aspect to it is being in the minors. There is more of a shuffle than the major so especially around trades. Either trained through the gums Assurance crazy from the inside. What is it like intern trade season? It's busy it frantic Hof. There's a lot of anxiety it's stressful. In any again the players know to in and they know they may not be here in their talk with her agents trying to figure out. What's the best situation for them? They're trying to have conversations I do love it about San Francisco. Giants said he'd try and be very transparent with with their players and even last year when they went through a transition at the top of the baseball operations side a new model came in and we had three hundred twenty one transactions more than one hundred hundred more transactions than we had the year before and sometimes it just meant a Called for a spot star or or just to fill a role but then he was being sent back down two days later. That's tough to deal with. You want everyone to go up and stay to someone. You're not sure what's going to happen with trades and free agency. You're not sure how you fit into the teams bigger vision and then you're used to one way and then a new regime comes in. You're you're moving back and forth. That was tough last year. And we have more than eighty five guys come through Sacramento and so our goal. How do we get to know won't make me comfortable? What else remember times where you know guy was opening outset back down and just having conversations with them about hey man like what does this mean how you doing it again. Just trying to be real real back. So that's that's that's a big piece of it. Yeah and impact the mental side of the game because going through trade season going up down being in a whole different city. If you've never been there it's hard for baseball player to stay mentally intact. Few Baseball itself is a mental game. You're not their mental. You're not hitting you're not feeling well. You're making errors like for you guys. Is that something you focus on saying Kabo yet? We think about that. I think the giants do a good job as well. So every year the giants will have all their affiliates need winter meetings so we can talk and communicate get to know each other so that way when a Guy Clinton gets called up from double a party the GM. He'll give me a call and you'll shoot me attacks and be like. Hey Great Guy. Here's a couple of things and so that way when the guy comes up I know a little bit about it and I've got that connection. I know the relationship. He had partying in AA or mark in single is San. Hey San Jose we get a lot of their guys. This the more we can communicate the more comfortable we can make the player feel No you got. You're going to be good here. We can laugh at job with them. That's a huge part of it. Even in the clubhouse we try and keep some continuity with whether it's it's paint on the walls or carpeting they see from Spring Training Single-a AA AAA all the way to San Francisco. So some of those small things in here we try and keep it loose and again it was funny we were. We were close. We're close to one game away from from a Clinton a playoff berth in Twelve Games left in our season last year. Guys start to tighten up and we lost five in a row in doubt creeps in and it was it was agonizing because when you're one game away you've got champagne ready to celebrate. You've got to have the plastic. So guys are walking by that in the clubhouse in it's all under getting tight because they see it dissipating in summer one morning. I among away in Daniel who oversees our baseball operations on a car. Clubhouse guide has a look enough. Like we've got to break this up. We gotTa have fun is so we started talking and kept going back to Major League in remember in that movie. They had a certain goal in the clubhouse and every time they would win a game they would take a piece off of this goal. I won't go into too much Listeners remember that in a major league but we took a similar approach than just had some fun with one of our pitching coach. Steve Kline Call. Him is declining. I'm going to have some funnier expense. We got one game to go. And we're GONNA take a major league approach to this in it. Just be goofy and so sure enough when when the players came into clubhouse in a see what we put up this. This funny picture are pitching coach with one game left than they ever started laughing and having a good time with sure enough and I remember I said. I know the rules of baseball. We're also talk by suggest what we're talking about work lynching tonight had entire front office staff is two guys stick around for the game. Were throwing a party. Meet me in the club in the ninth inning. We're going to celebrate. We're GONNA have beers in trying to go down in celebrate with the team so I broke all the baseball rules. But guess what the guys were loose. They were cracking up. They had fun. We won the game. We clinched a playoff. Berth and it was a whole lot of fun celebrating. No that's also nets. That's part of the unwritten rules baseball. There's mccovey you do whatever it takes to get your TV Lewis. Maybe the baseball Gods will get me this year. Now we had to change something. That's it will. I mean Dell last year it also Getting back to you and your story tenuously you weren't interns and then you got to. Vpn three years. Yeah Yeah Ours. Finishing Grad school at Baylor and finished my degree instead of writing along paper. I chose to do an internship and started doing an internship with the Memphis redbirds and I remember the end of that season gave chase their GM two times chip what you WANNA do today. I WANNA be a GM by time of thirty five. I think I was twenty five at that time so I was the old intern. Most of the kids were twenty one. Twenty two coming out of college. So you'll internal set a specific goal and David Chip. You can do it. I believe in you and so I think it's important stopper. There's important people believe in you. I tell you who you are so often we look at Man. We see our faults in our screw our doubts but they have someone say across the table from you like Dave in him being the GM in looking in the eyes chip you can do it. You're going to be successful. That was powerful in that was motivating so went from there and a new phone when the run team. I need to learn the revenue side so I took a sales job in really fell in love the Frisco rough riders Mandalay baseball and and their approach to relationship sales and having a systematic way to go through it. I enjoyed it. I fell in love with it in a lot of success so I was promoted quickly and have the opportunity to leave the Frisco rough riders. Some of the other folks there had left to start a new ownership group Tacoma rainiers and they were trying to build new ballpark up there and they asked me to go up the VP of ticket sales had a brother in Seattle. Love the idea of of a new challenge. The idea of being a part of building a new ballpark so I jumped at that opportunity in in so yet went from being an intern to VP. In less than three years of the here too I worked my butt off. I think outside you before I. I used to be pretty humble. I WANNA say a lot but I think I think people need to hear that message. I missed wedding friends. Buddies were that college buddies. Were getting married. I Mr Weddings. I couldn't take vacation. Couldn't afford to take vacation. I moved to Texas my fam- moves in Chicago. I was on my own four law that but I didn't want to take time off from work. I knew I knew I was put in a great spot. Had great mentors around me extra time when when John's bolster will come into town in speak on the president. Mandalay baseball that time I asked to go with. I didn't want another sales rep having that thirty minutes to an hour in the car Jon Spoelstra because I wanted to go do something else. That was my priority to be next to him so as much as much knowledge as I could work my tail off over that time. I firmly believe the people the mentors the open doors for me but I also believe that the work that I put in a reason I prioritized learning and growing reading soaking much. That could from other people that that got me to that opportunity to VPN for years yet. No THAT'S INTERESTING. I interned here cast source going Messier Year of college and the one thing that one of my professors stuff in the whole time was taken as much as you can your first few years. Like ask questions asked for feedback. Any meeting we go in a laid on me. A good idea wrong did yawn. Did I say something to the settling weighed on me? And now you take that and learn from that will make the stakes again. Of course yeah. I'm probably made a ton of data. Have up there. But that's the only way you're GONNA learn grow from that end. So do you. Now being where you're at here you see we have the sales team right behind you instill in them daily. I certainly tried to try. Yoga would say do or do not tribal Yoda. I'm trying yeah it is something trying to instill in the young guys in and I really try and build a mentoring program here with with our culture I get it. I don't think it's new. People say millennials want to be promoted. I WANNA be promoted quickly. I I wanted to make more money but also learned the value of of having a mentor and and being open to feedback in in criticism. In one of those guys it was a senior down executive in Frisco and I started Matt Goodman us with the NBA for awhile now. He's with New York F. C. N. N. So hope good. He listens to this. It gives me a call because he'd be proud hit always. He was granted Colombo tactic. And that's something that we learned sales. You're at a meeting. And you can't overcome an objection. You're not sure you finish it up in The Hague. Flip it like. Hey I'm the sales guy talked me how. How do any feedback and what what? Connive Tom and I love that. Still try and use at Colombo tactic today because I was a young dumb sales guy. I was learning a lot. I'm still on. I think about the mentors. The people I look up to their more advanced in years and so. I want to ask them for feedback. How could I have done better? What learn from the process. I'm going through after this. All listen is podcast on people. Critique me so that I can. I can learn August. We're human fright. We all make mistakes. We don't WANNA make the same won't twice and we want to learn and we want to grow our marketing team director. Marketing just laughed. And we're looking to bring someone new on and sense the fear no marketing department and I went to them in and we sat down last week. And we'll talk through the Vision Time Line World K. And reassure them I said. Hey It's okay to make mistakes. That's how we grow. You grow from failure. I was listening to something this warning. I think about you working out. You're going to the gym. You go to failure. Because that's how you adapt and grow and if you never WANNA push yourself. You're not going to get stronger. And so on our staff doing that and marketing team butts evaluate. Let's take time to look back at what we did. Evaluated BE CRITICAL OF OURSELVES. Allow other people be critical of than to step to learn? What can we learn from that in step three is improve apply improve and we all we all want to do that and here trying to have that that safe environment? Where our young sales guys over here our marketing team. Whoever it is can be comfortable learning that way. That's incredible. I mean that's invaluable to everyone in there like you can't teach that anywhere else. You can't get your story anywhere at a Ford Office said somewhere else. You're just applying doing tasks. You're getting that true mentorship and you're the face of it. You're if you work hard. If you take all this information if you learn for people and you get feedback you can be where I'm at and nets. There's nothing humble saying Allie. It may not be selling your rubbing off. You're trying to impact their lives and I love that. So that that other aspect of yourself in what you're doing is education and networking. So you're being the community. You're begging giving back and like you mentioned with private schools churches in the area as with other business schools. Why is it so important to you? Is it another aspect of? You're just trying to touch as many lives as possible. Yeah it is so important as I said it goes back then people side and and I love seeing people be successful on and again look back and me as as a young boy as a young man or the whole lot of insecurities. I never knew my father and so I needed people to believe in need to invest in me to give me opportunities so that I could start developing myself. Confidence in early on it was baseball coaches Continue Baseball coaches through college but then some business professors and they believed in the guys like Brent stelle accused my boss in Frisco an he's gone on to have a great career in sports. John Davis was just with him at national sports form. A couple of weeks ago in John's with Kentucky Kentucky Derby now still inspires. Maybe more than anybody every time. I get with him he he starts rattling off all my successes Illinois. Reduce ME INSANE. How awesome I am. I said John I don't need you. I'm trying to guy you know like like no. I failed a lot to along along the way but people like that invested in so I can be that to to other people certainly our staff here by love it. It's one of those things I think we understand life is more than just the daily grind the daily grind. It's it's important I enjoy. I enjoy that part of it as well but we can invest in other people. There's so much reward and we can give back. There's so much reward in that that that we try to do that year in and I'll add on it is trying to create that culture. Where again partnership with William Jessop University? A small school just north of here and want to give their students opportunity to work with their marketing department. Hey help us. With our social engagement help us with their email engagement in our segmentation. I would have died for that experience when I was in college. That's that's awesome and so to give those students that exposure to our staff and then I try and meet with them a couple times a year. I started off telling my story. Hopefully maybe inspire them in a couple of them have reached out to me. I want to give time to those college students because somebody gave me that time in certainly here with with with the river cast organization will have a limited amount of time. So you can't be everything to everybody but I certainly try and identify who the leaders who are people that for me and who wants to learn grow and that's GonNa give some of that time too. Yeah now let's say I mean from what what you're saying what you've been through your whole life there's community there's getting back there's work ethic mentor ship and you're living biologics from a even from when you were younger to now it's truly playing out which is great to see so now. Lewis that's endless river cash. Yeah all right so there's two things one coming off championship where we have the season honor. We're looking forward. It's Oh man. That's that's the that's the question everybody's asking it. Let me let me share this great September Seventeenth. Twenty nineteen just have to be my fortieth birthday. That happened to be the day. We won the AAA National Championship. I was recognized as Pacific coast executive of the year. What day to cap in awesome year? I'm GonNa Forget that day right and so it internally so our our staff they'll they'll joe like down from here you can't improve on on that but but no it is exciting. Even even this morning at the gym some giants fans come up to me and like came at were excited about the river. Cats teams secretly. I think there's a lot of excitement about Rt. Maybe a little more than the giants this year. We have a great team but everybody knows even busy stocking the covers it taken that step back and I don't know if they've come out and said is the rebuilding year but everybody expects add in. We've seen the astros cubs. Red Sox had do that for a while the Yankees in for a couple years back and now they're they're competing in so the giants are doing that but they've got a lot of talent coming up in so when we look at a roster. There's some excitement about the play on the field Burundi. Tiny our coaching staff. Hobart we've got are a lot of our coaching staff coming back so should be a lot of continuity for time to go down the spring training in a couple of weeks. See the team meet with the coaches with the giants in a better idea of what we're GonNa have certainly a a lot of anticipation going into the season. Yeah that's incredible when you're going into it with obviously you have your idea of what your personal you have your bubble players who may make the giants who may not players maybe double a triple from a marketing standpoint. How does it work? Not exactly knowing who your Rosso Julia Roster is going to be. It's it's a challenge the modeling side. We always take the approach of. Let's let's talk about community. We've done a lot of that today. Let's talk about our mascot and and really focused their on the fun and the entertainment so that way no matter what players. We have no matter for winning national championships over. Not We're GONNA promote the fund the entertainment I mean in the Minor League Baseball to escape from reality. We talked about If we can be safe clean fun and family friendly affordable people are going to continue to come out the telling story on that is while NFL NBA MLB attendances declined lash remodeling. Baseball's hall was. The only league was the only sports organization to growing attendance until something. It says it's more than MTV is about the fun and the entertainment so from marketing perspective. We love it when we if we get joey barred or Elliott Ramos. This year will will promote those guys a seam. Here I but in the end you know it's always going to be about the join the fun come be part of what we're doing here at the newly named Stuttered Health Park. Yeah well that's it so I know you have taken since you've come to this organization. Major substitute prevent gauge at John did take it to the next level on us off. Actually you guys just continued on another element in Van Engagement. What are you bringing? What are you looking to improve if someone comes to a game not just watching a game? I'm bringing my kids. I WANNA go have him takes a BP run basis or whatever. It is what you bring to the table that I love. You want that love. The river cats going back to it starts at the top in Susan style mentioned her our CEO majority owner for many years. She was the wife of sports executive and she was raising two boys and they love going to to ball games which choose the one taking her sons two games in so cleanliness as a mom. She wanted to make sure the facilities claims. She didn't want her young boys running around in dirty messy place. That's where safety comes into as a mom she wants. Make sure she feels her boys or save when when they're at a at a facility but she also understand the game may be a backdrop. It's about the family time connecting together. It's Abou a mom taking a breather. While her kids can go play on the playground or Mama. Dad Can enjoy cold beverage and they know their kids are having a good time rolling down the grass berm. So it's about it's about those moments in so that's what we would try and do here nets a piece of fan engagement thanks. Sports teams can lose focus on digital so much right now we focus on social which important were coming out with a community for social social campaign where we don't WanNa be. Social narcissist always talked about the river. Cats we're talking about community we want to boast about high school baseball teams. That are playing here when a boasts about our nonprofit or benefit part of the night program. So that they were continuing to send a message of other people that are doing great things in this community but when engage fans while they're here New Video Board that we put it in. I brought up Susan's approach. Because she continues to build out our kids player a couple years ago instead of charging for we said. Let's make free back to that. Affordable family friendly entertainment. My mom wouldn't have been able to afford to pay extra for my brothers night. He'll plan on the bounce. House will guess what what's eliminate that barrier because those kids are the future fans and we're heading into our first season we started in two thousand. We have young fans and now have young families. Don't fans in two thousand now? Have Young families are bringing out in twenty twenty two? What a treat for that. That new generation to experience where recasts Baseball Star Health Park. It's awesome so that that that's certainly important community engagement. Yeah that's incredible so I mean I love what you have going on as a whole. What the river cats organization and I. I'm sure knowing that you guys at top of the attendance in value and everything that the fans recognize it too so your efforts are going along way. So I mean I've ever listen to this checks out a game this season or even watches online or two games to get these tickets but in closing.

That has been taken different ways by different people. You know right now with As as we're having this conversation there's still a little bit of a of a block. I around the Astros. What's going on and you know just coming off of hall of fame inductions the PD stuff. There are there things that can distract sports distract sports operators leaders in so. I just want to thank the fans for their continued support. Because it reminds me why we're here why we're doing this it's a reminder not to get sidetracked. It's reminder to do the fan engagement to think about that mom and in her family that the MOM and dad. I love hear stories about people that that met first day was a river cats games.

REBROADCAST: Alive - The Drew Robinson Story

"Hey guys is pablo here with a message about today's bonus episode back in february jeff. Passan reported the story of drew robinson. A former major league baseball player who struggled with mental health issues and attempted suicide in april of two thousand and twenty miraculously drew robinson survived and. He vowed to himself that he would attempt to return to professional baseball. Well this past week drew was added to the roster of the san francisco giants triple a affiliate the sacramento river cats and he started the season opener in right field. Drew story is an important one and we are honored to share it again with you here today before we begin a quick note today show deals with mental health and describes attempted suicide. Thank you for listening. Jeff you've been writing about baseball for almost two decades now and you break news. You've written a book you've investigated serious issues and the game you cover the most high profile players and deals. How do you see this story fitting into your body of work. I think this is the most important story that i will ever right. I say that because the subject of the story so universal it touches so many people. It doesn't matter what team you're a fan of. It doesn't matter what sport you're a fan of really drew. Robinson is the person who everybody knows the person who everybody loves and the person who in the end. I think everybody can see a little bit of themselves in and that is why when i was first told about what had happened to him. I understood that this was going to be unlike any other story at ever done a baseball like life. Domains that you make peace with loss with failure especially at the plate for all the time spent practicing a hitter swings and misses far more than making that no matter how good they are today. Jeff passan tells the incredible story of major league baseball player drew robinson a hitter who nearly lost his life and is now doing the hard work every day to get it back. I'm pablo toy. It's tuesday february. Second this is espn. Jeff where does the story of drew robinson began. The story. Drew robinson begins on magic moment lane in las vegas jeff passan is an mlb insider for espn and his work on the story of drew robinson is up now on espn plus it was just all those those little tiny amazing details down to the name of the street that he grew up on that drew me to him. As a person as a character and his a story and he was precocious. What's the first thing people think about you goofball. I did my best to try to lightness situation with people. I tried to make people laugh. And i thought that i was good at that. He was the kid youngest of three children who would go next door and sneak through his neighbors doggy door and steal their treats so he could bring him back to this menagerie of animals that he had in his house. There were dogs that were cats. They had a pet rat in a cage and drew is the kid who would tape his feet to a bicycle and go on a trampoline in his backyard. And just bounce around without any care. His sister britney used to hate having him around because drew take off all of his clothes. Run outside and start riding a bike and her friends would say your brothers naked again. He was also an incredible baseball player and from a very young age even though he wasn't big even though he wasn't strong he had the actions. That coaches look at and say this kid ever fills out. He is going to be something else but when drew was at that age where he needed to tell his feelings to someone where where he needed to explain that he had this. Lingering doubt in his mind that just would never go away regardless of the situation. Whether it was with baseball it was with school with friends with family. There is always something. They're pushing him toward this negativity that he just could not escape from. I can think back to when. I was twelve years old playing little league. I was a kid every single time. I struck out and slam. My bat slammed my helmet. Kreil time because i thought that i had to be perfect in every aspect of my life in terms of the scouting report on robinson war. His best attributes hit a lot of power. You know he's left handed hitter. He ended up hitting that growth spurt. Six foot one hundred ninety pounds. Just a beautiful swing gap gap power. That was going to grow into something more if his body filled out. And when it did man like he was an actual prospect high fly ball hit to right field and that's a splashdown homerun for drew robinson. Being a prospect in las vegas in two thousand. Ten pablo was no small thing. There was a player who had left highschool and gone to play junior college ball named bryce harper. Yup and there was a player at bonanza high school one of the rivals of silverado where drew wet name kris bryant and so this was pretty historic high school class and drew wound up making all state shortstop in teams. Were really intrigued. Not just by the power but by his versatility to he played shortstop but they thought he projected second basement a third baseman. Maybe an outfielder. The possibilities of what drew robinson could be as a baseball player were endless. So scouts were noticing the power the versatility and in two thousand ten drew graduates from high school and he gets drafted. He gets drafted by the texas rangers in the fourth round. And it's this huge moment for him but it doesn't translate in the end jeff too. Big league play what happens. Well he took a while to get to the big leagues. And we've seen all durham and we understand kind of honest surface level what the minor leagues are like but for drew it was truly grind. I knew i was beard. And don't get me wrong. But in the moment i was still like. Don't mess up. I wouldn't allow myself to understand. That mistakes are just mistakes. It doesn't define who. I was despite that voice in his head despite that companion on his shoulder telling him all of the things he was doing wrong he worked any worked any worked and his dad. Darryl was a mason and taught him just this unrelenting work ethic that whatever. You're feeling in a moment. Just shove it to the side and put in more work. Did you have anybody that you could go to and tell how you really truly feeling i did. I didn't know. I thought it was gonna inconvenience for them. They don't wanna hear that they don't care. I just thought that it was going to be a burden on them to give them my problems when he was inside the clubhouse and there was media in there he would think as he's saying his answer. I wonder how people who are listening to this are looking at it. I wonder what they're thinking of me. When he would run out to his position on the field he would be so called nielsen of every step. He was taking and believing that he might be doing something wrong. It just compounded itself to the point where he recognized. There was something that was wrong. He just didn't know what to do about it. So drew aches the major league roster texas rangers in two thousand and seventeen. He is twenty-five years old. What was drew's reaction. When he made it. I did it. It was just where everyone talks about. You finally achieved what you've been working all the time for. I get goosebumps thinking about that. Still just ended. And he sent those three words in attacks to his mom and his dad his brother and a sister. And a woman named diana angelo vega who had been his on and off girlfriend for for many many years and who really was the the sun the moon and the stars to him. His first major league hit was a home. Run at yankee. Stadium this ball hit well out the right center. Field defects gone drew with his first career. Begley hit and make it a home run. What a great moment and you can imagine the joy and the excitement and everything that goes along with that. How long did it last. Until the next day when i got sent down. That's the way baseball goes like if you are not a star then you're fungible and if you're fungible you are just a piece of a roster so after two years with the rangers jeff drew gets traded to the st louis cardinals and he makes the big league roster and then it gets sent down a week later and then up and down again a couple more times from there and he hurts his elbow and the cardinals end up releasing them. This is obviously a real blow to drew's career and mentally. I imagine it takes a huge toll. You know it's getting worse and worse. He's feeling more and more isolated after the cardinals released him. He started to really understand he was getting to a dangerous place. He was growing more depressed. He started thinking about suicide and that scared him attempted to do some self work. I was seeing a therapist in the off season. And i was reading a lot of self development books but again i took it in the negative way whereas look how far away i am from where i wanna be. He had proposed to diana right around the time that he got traded to the cardinals and had set a wedding date for november of two thousand. Twenty she really saw progress with him but he wasn't seeing progress with himself in that that frustrated him even more you know he signed with the san francisco giants minor league contract that offseason but just couldn't get those thoughts out of his head and he felt like he was not good enough for diana and so he broke off the engagement. So this is two thousand and twenty jeff. He's at spring training. He's with the big league organization the giants then the pandemic hits instead of throwing himself into practice in arizona. As you wouldn't a normal year. He's home alone in las vegas. What happens over those next weeks. He gets home and within a week goes to a gun. Store buys a gun and picks it up. On march thirtieth. He's alone because diana at that point did not wanna see him. She felt like it would be best for herself. Just two separate from him. He at one point met up with a woman who had a litter of puppies in drew loves dogs and thought you know. Maybe if i get a dog it'll help. He went and saw the dogs and was playing with one of them. Something happened to him in that moment. He looked at the woman and he said. I'm sorry i can't take this dog. And when i asked drew why he said that he said i couldn't take the dog because i was planning on killing myself. Your business is important to you and the best way to improve. Your business is to improve the lives of your people you k. g. develops hr and workforce management solutions designed to take care of your employees because when they feel supported and connected and appreciated. Your business will transform from a workplace into a work of art. Uk g our purpose is people so jeff to robinson has created this plant to end his life in his home in las vegas on april sixteenth. Two thousand and twenty in the middle of isolating in his home during the coronavirus pandemic when that day arrives. What does he do. It was almost like any other day for him. So i just woke up like normal arrive at the thought when today once i've made the official decision like planning to do something complete normal. He had been working sort of on a note that he was taking. You know little bits and pieces in putting it onto his phone so he didn't forget anything and that morning he woke up he ate a bagel. He drank a smoothie and he wrote this down and it was to his mom and his dad is brother and a sister diana to all the people who he loved the most he had been thinking about this for so long and this was finally the day that it was going to happen and he had a plan in his head where he was going to do it. I thought it was gonna be in his truck away from his house because he didn't want to leave a mess for his family to have to clean up but when he was out in multiple spots with his track. It just didn't feel right so he came back home and the clock was ticking and he was thinking about it. Sit on the couch for a little bit contemplating. I was afraid of hurting my family. I was afraid of afraid of leading things how they were around the clock and i'm leaning down leading to the side a little bit. Take up the gun to my head. All motion cola trigger. He pulls the trigger and what happens next. He realizes he still alive. Split-second goes by looking at the exact. Same thing i was looking at before i pull the trigger happened. Know feeling must not have worked my hand to my face feel a blood. What's going on what happened here. How am i still seeing things. How my non pain either for five or ten minutes. Just absolutely confused. How can this happen. Takes a while for him to figure out what's going on. He just knows that. There's there's a mass and he's going to try to clean it up. The blood is pooling in his mouth. He's getting nauseous throws up but he sell live. There was significant damage the set of which he didn't even realize at that point as i walked from the bathroom to bed i thought goes online. Okay this this is not gonna make it through the night. It's seven a m on april seventeenth. Eleven hours after he shot himself and he is finally in excruciating pain. Feel personally face moving. Around when i move your air bubbles. I don't wanna lay here a week and go through this. I don't wanna. I don't wanna suffer. That's when the i thought maybe try again a glance myself in the mirror. I wasn't even recognizable. My right eye was swollen in sealed chef from dry blood too. I thought towards the future came to my mind knocking baseball again then. I caught myself for thinking about baseball. We're thinking about the future. Return to survive this. He goes back to the spot on his couch where he had tried to end his life and he picks up the gun again. Gunnison his left hand this time in his right hand is his phone and he starts asking himself which is it. Am i gonna choose life. Am i gonna choose the alternative either for fifteen twenty minutes. Maybe the decision wanna live and at three forty four pm on april seventeenth nearly twenty hours. After he shot himself he called nine one one nine one one emergency spy medical okay. Tell me exactly what happened to try to commit suicide last night. And i knew and how they're just two tasks my is. Maybe i can open my right eye. And i have my head off the what did you do. Stop myself in the head bleeding. Yes is there more than one wound. shave out the other side. Go ahead somewhere. Paramedics help you now saying the line. I'll tell you exactly what to do next. Okay oh oh. Where are you located in your house along thoughts and what's your first name. Drew opposition when the police arrive at the home of drew robinson. What did they find in what happens. They were worried that this was an ambush because who shoots himself and then twenty hours later is still alive that that it sounded like a story that was too far fetched to be true They kick down the door. Income inside back medically here the bottom floor. Here's what we can see. They found drew laying down on the couch and they see blood all over the place. Eight minutes after he had called nine one one. There's a police officer there who asks him. Why did you shoot yourself. Why shoot yourself and response was very soft. Almost like he was embarrassed by it. Okay because i hate myself your wife kids jeff. What did the doctor say about how drew was able to actually be alive. How is he able to survive a gunshot wound to his head. He got lucky. That's about the best that doctors could muster because the path of the bullet essentially went through his right eye and instead of taking turn upward toward his brain which very easily could have went through the sinus area and down and forward out just above his left cheekbone. It just missed his left eye as well. Everything else was was more or less intact. After this catastrophic moment in the film version of your story drew's physical. Appearance is striking. How do you describe what he looks like now. God he's still really handsome. Jeff he really is. He's he's just a really good looking guy. And i and and i say still because the effects of the gunshot wound were devastating. And what surgeons were able to do with him. It's incredible to see his left eye is big and brown and full of life and his right eye is closed and inside of it. There is a globe that doctors place they're essentially to replace the eyeball that was unsalvageable and needed In a nuclear option to remove because it it's simply was never going to be able to function again so drew leaves the hospital and he begins this intensive psychological work on himself. What kind of help is he receiving. And what's his response to that help when he was talking with psychologists with psychiatrists with everybody in his life he just had this profound feeling of love and appreciation and wanting to get better and a meaning for being here. The one thing that nobody wants to do is to say that what happened to him directly caused his reaction afterward because that is unsafe because suicide is a terrible thing. in drew's reason for talking right now is to elucidate. That message is clearly as possible. The first thing i did was come and sit down on the couch. Hussein spot learned field again still here empowers me take a lot of people would want to take everything from that day and never see it again. You ask for some things back. I got the note that i left behind. I got the bullet. Honestly it just feels like the piece of metal. I look at this thing and think i'm stronger than you. I'm stronger than i thought. I was physically and mentally. I'll all of this is happening. Jeff drew is also beginning to rebuild his body. How long after this does he start to swing a bat again. When does he start to catch. Fly balls again. What's his goal. They're going back to that moment where he looked at his reflection in the mirror in the bathroom and thought about baseball he wanted to play. But there's the question of course of. Could he physically do it. There was the question of course of. Is this the right thing for me to try. And do considering how profoundly baseball affected me and a lot of ways negatively and i think in the end there is a value judgment by him that he feels like he is in the position now mentally. Were all of the things that inhibited him in. The past will no longer be there and if they are there he will know how to handle them better than he did back then so three months after he leaves the hospital he starts taking swings patch over his right eye and so he starts hitting fastballs. I and it's gone pretty well. And then they bring up the velocity on the fastballs and hey it's it's still going well. And then they start mixing in breaking pitches because there are questions about depth perception but one of his doctors. Pablo told me that depth perception when it comes to hitters isn't quite as big of a deal as people would think because depth perception mostly affects people up close and as he went outside and started taking swings at stadiums as opposed to inside cages. It continued to be clear. He believed that he was not just going to play baseball again but that he could get back to the major leagues talk more jeff about trues relationship with baseball today in just a moment. Goodyear knows when the season starts heating up so to the possibilities. Play off. Hopefuls are beginning to emerge and contenders are solidifying their position from here on out every game a chance to create momentum to make the right past the right move to hit the perfect shot it takes momentum to build up to the moment but it takes everything to capture it. Goodyear more driven a sixteen around mpm identified suicide. Shot myself in the head. A day later april seventeenth around four pm. Idell not want myself in an attempt to save. I want to talk about september two thousand and twenty jeff. This is just four months ago. Now and drew is visiting with his old employer the san francisco giants and he's there to speak to the team about this entire experience about mental illness. What are the players have to say about drew story. They were just so touched by what he had to say. And so amazed by his strength in standing up in front of a group of people who were his peers many of whom had gone through some of the same thoughts he had. I'm here to tell anyone that has not doing start believing herself to start being yourself as a loving yourself in a way that completely free itself ourselves. Roadmap baseball is not. This linear thing. Sports are not this linear thing where everything is on an upward trajectory even the greatest athletes even the most competent people who aren't athletes. Who are in other professions have. Down's they have low moments and drew wanted to distinguish ties. That and there were tears among teammates coaches front office. People that day there was discomfort. Because you know what what do you. What do you say to him. How do you talk with him about this. And in what struck so many people there was his openness in was his willingness to talk about all of these things that unfortunately people don't like speaking about because it is a really difficult subject. And because sometimes you just don't know what to say. Drew now feels this calling to help others who have struggled with mental health. How's he been attempting to do that. How is he been attempting to help. Other people who've gone through similar things you know. He's had conversations with other players about where they are mentally but i think this story pablo and in going public with it for the first time is really going to open up those doors as much as anything i think. He's prepared for that and he's excited for that. It's been even more profound. What's happened to his personal relationships. His relationship with his mom and his dad and his brother and a sister and diana drew story going forward is not going to be just about this guy who's trying to make an unprecedented comeback ball. It's going to be about what he teaches others. What he's taught the people he loves. That's where he finds his strength. that's where he finds his faith. There's nothing wrong with having mental health problems. It's the same thing as a diabetic who needs insulin. Your body is your body and you need to treat it in the best way. You possibly can and druze. Treatment is ongoing every single day. So as for the baseball end of this jeff because this comeback is being attempted and it is the platform upon which drew robinson might be able to stand and broadcast all of these messages. What's it gonna take to see you. Robinson play professional baseball again. I think we're about to find out because the san francisco giants resign drew to a minor league contract october. Twenty second was the day. After he had hit his first outdoor homerun and he had gotten a text from the giants manager. Gabe kappler saying you awake. Drew called them up and kappler had talked with farhan zaidi the giants president and scott harris their general manager and they all agreed they needed to bring him back and for the last few months. That's what drew's been getting ready for last week. I got a text from him. And it's a video and he's taking live batting practice which is not just the guy you know. Toss the ball over the plate and you try and whack it as hard as you can. This is a bigly quality. Pitcher named jason bradford who was in the major leagues from two thousand seventeen to two thousand nineteen throwing a sinker to drew and he takes a swing and the ball just flies a few seconds later. It lands over the fence. I don't know if that means that he's good enough to get back to the major leagues but every single day. I talk with him. He feels like he's getting better. And i am never going to doubt. Drew robinson's ability to do something that the world might believe. He can't do jeff. Drew ends every day. All of his journal entries with the same eight words. What are they. I love myself. And i love my life with two exclamation points at the end by the way not just one got to have the extra exclamation point in there and he says this pablo even on days. That aren't great at one point. In december didn't work out one day beat himself up over. It felt like he was being lazy and he saw himself spiraling some of those bad feelings that he had grown so used to before that were parts of this old life that he had. We're coming back and for the first time. Since april sixteenth thoughts of suicide came into his head again in this is not uncommon. The rate of suicide survivors. Who attempt again within the first year is staggering and on that second attempt quite often. It's successful so called diana into his room where he'd been sitting for a couple of days and he said to her. I'm depressed right now. It was such such an important moment in his life and that was the thing that put him back on track to where he is today the fact that he was able to confront this thing that in the past he hadn't been able to do successfully and make it out of that made him even more confidence in his ability to live the kind of life that he wants to deserves to live. I'm supposed to help people supposed to help. People get through something. that doesn't seem winnable. Meant to be a life meant to be life. Jeff passan thank you for sharing the story of drew robinson with us on espn daily. And it's my pleasure. Pablo thank you e sixties alive.

Sacramento. Right. From. The Abu I you know honestly I did think he would be a decent player. I just did not think he would be doing right? Did that I do not think Mike was going to do what he's doing I I'm pleasantly surprised I love it and he's One of the better players in the national. League I love it as a guy that never got a shot with the orioles noise deserved a shot and just to see as it can happen to a better human being to saw its ray really coast and cool to see he and Sam. Selma new former roommates. They played together a dandy cool to see those guys on the on the same club and and Sam Selma. No late late bloomer we got there late.

A so-called platoon player who emerged as an everyday player in three hitter on a contender but. Yeah well, we'll catch on some other players as well, but I also wanted to discuss your new book which I love, and it's called good night 'em baseball and life through Haiku. and first of all Johnny, congratulations on the project It's a collection of Haiku who's about baseball about life and plenty of lessons within which I appreciate and I recommended highly because it's so fun and plenty of giants references in there as well. Current. And Past What was the inspiration? Based on it and it was You know. I on the quarantine I had some time and I'd always written. My brother got me into the Haiku when I was younger and even during my time in traveling in the Pacific Coast League I would write I choose on on the South West magazine but never keep him I just throw thrown out I the right different pages and I kind of. Might say I was pretty good one but never keep him I always throw throw it out. I'm like optimism. Why did I why did they do that? It's really good. But then I, just when I was on this quarantine started writing a few and then turned into twenty and then I, got into a two hundred and then after a while I was like I got three weeks in I'm going to. Put together a book site. I didn't even plan on, right I was just writing I didn't plan on writing a book until I got. About one, hundred, twenty, five, hundred, thirty, hundred, fifty, and right around there and I just said, you know what I'm GonNa put book together and and It was happened really organically and I started writing a you know a lot of them were mostly just life high twos, my Weiss. Said, you know what you're in baseball you should focus on more baseball hiking and Meka rights to life wants to. But why not you're in baseball? Why not? Right. The mean lots even in this game and and she was absolutely right. So it turns out about seventy five percents. Eighty percent are are baseball oriented and I'm glad I mean she's always use the smart one of the couple preferring. Did that and it turned out great and it was a it was a really, really fun. Fun Project and and you know I'd. From point maybe write another one. It was really fun to put together Yan southwest. Airlines the magazine, the white guys always fill out the class word puzzles before I see him but but having. That would entertaining as well. But. Could you? Explain what Haiku is. I. Know It is Po- poetry and in the English version, it's what seventeen syllables, three lines, five syllables first line seven syllables second line, and five syllables third line. But I'm Steven now. It's five, seventy, five and I it's originally in Japan. They're just I. I like because I like the fact that you try to tell a story within seventeen syllables and I like the challenge of that. And it's I don't know I just I I've always loved the simplicity of Haiku yet I love the depth of it. I love the fact that you. Can tell a story with with just in be so economical with your words and economical with your syllables and. They're great and you know it's funny. I had a cut about. A panic moment although you know there are some clues they say written where you don't have to go this'll five, seven five. I two, five, seven five but as I was getting toward editing the book. I woke up in a panic at about. Two, thirty, a and apparent with the Travis Ishikawa Haiku had. Six. So it it was forever in giant's Lore. So that was five, seven six and I said, Oh, my goodness I went back and I realized that there were hike through the I've missed the syllable count on. So I had to Redo a grad checked it because I literally woke up thinking about that Haiku what woke me up but I. I changed to etched in giants lawyers was five so both not seven. Defied to not six but. They really are fun to put together their front fronta writer. Recommend anybody just go outside. With your your coffee in the morning and start writing they're. Fun. Fun to write and I really enjoyed it. Yeah. You should collar that that one it goes like this one swing chanced his life. Travis T. Ichikawa. Etched in giants lower. Right. Yeah man that's that's. A. Couple hundred of these and if anybody is a giants fan or baseball fan or Owed appreciates lessons or. History. You know there's there's plenty plenty here why the title? Why good night am well. Again, again, I have to give my wife credit for the book title because we were thinking about what? What's the title being? She said I have it. And she said I damn good. Night him I I have Since two thousand, she was born December twenty, fifth two, thousand five and then beginning in two thousand, six season at the end of every broadcast I would say tonight I take a night tour just to honor her. so Every every nightly broadcasts not during the day, but every nightly broadcast say the final store. Then the last thing I say has gone item. So it was and that was something that. I just started doing it. Oh six, I still do it now even though she's not. Really listening to my games still. I know. To. Every every time and That's You know it's funny because in two thousand eleven that Billy Crystal movie came out. He said tonight to his daughter and I'm like Hey I don't forget I started. No sick. Wow he took it really Chris I. Know they said that can do it now since two thousand six and I'm GonNA continue to it. Your fantastic self. It seems every answer you're giving me here is You involving your wife how come? She wasn't the CO author here. You know she she goes a lot of credit actually should be. SHOULD BE Doing in the Dansko for serve yet. So he's not a couple of faves that you might share. You know, yeah I like the I like the Tyler Rogers. IQ. Tight Rogers to because it really it really Touch me just the fact that I talked with brundage about it. Just the fact that he he is always told me I interviewed a bunch of times in all his years in Sacramento and he always police I call was gonNA beat his brother. His brother. Tyler deserved I think a couple of years and finally got that call and I asked the brundage about the story because he was right there. You know talking about he said that pilot is. Tire tried to call his he called his brother, but he couldn't get the words out. He just couldn't talk because he was so overwhelmed with emotion and. You know his Dave rented is telling me this story in the in the in his office. I started. Weeping I mean it was just such a moving story because I knew how much meant. Not only cuyler but details, and for him to try to try to get the words out and couldn't utter a single word and my last line is he didn't have to write visit goes Taylor News that that move me just because you know the thing about trillions, these guys get called up. And Dave Brundage. Forever, the manager is has has a way to kind of mess with a little bit, but it's always so emotional player the first time they called up. And It just that never that never gets old. Obviously you know when a man address to release a player, it's awful about the other end when a player gets called up in his dreams and another. Is. phoned his parents river of tears when I got called up you know I like Haiku that of describes how those guys feel when they when they got when they got the call and it's just Seen it so many times and in Tripoli a long time, and that never the stories never get old as far as a player getting getting the word that he's going to big lakes look can you read the title Rogers Heiko? Yeah. No question here it is called Rogers to the show is the name of the Haiku. And it goes tyler called his twin. Could not utter single word. It didn't have to. The next the guts, the Tyler Rogers Haiku Yeah you know. That's The beginning of his career when the touch me was about Kris buyer the beginning of his career. All it made me twelve again and Because that's how old I was when he debuted. But his is Turned around saw maze. Look to left saw mccovey. Shook his head in awe. Yeah and I said Yeah you chills. It does it just because I remember telling me that story he was the manager in High Desert Ninety, seven when I. When I was broadcasting their own we would we would work out together and he would always joke because he did like twenty pull Nicos did you do your pull up because I could just do one pull up yet but he was he was such a workout guy but but he He was so. Cold store you could tell he was still in all the story in just the fact He. Would be on the same field of them couldn't believe. He's twenty years old. Or older ahead just can't believe in the Big Leagues Right. Now, with those two legends I'm playing with A. Really Cool.

You talk you talk to players and players are. Constantly amazed and I Probably, there've been at least. Twenty five to thirty player. I don't even know I've lost count a players that had told me they've had conversations with Willie mays when they've been in the giants clubhouse and how. They'RE GONNA they're actually talking to me. It means talking to them and giving them advice and giving them advice and it just. Players Never They talk about a lot and they're they're amazed accessibility amazed that he's in the clubhouse just sitting there in the clubhouse and can just talk to him and he's From training and so players really are in awe and I wanted to capture that in Haikou just the fact that. These guys have an opportunity to talk to a living legend and they take advantage of it and he's not giant talking to the players which are. He's not. Tell them about what he experienced in his illustrious career. I think it's A really cool to hear about players given the opportunity to do that. Yeah. Yeah I. I imagine you've got closest even vote. Yeah Much Yup, celebrated the Stephen Votes Road Haiku who's in this hits because I imagine he's going to get a Lotta offers day he retires as a player to manage in Rosa backup single a time Major League all-star big league manager. So you that's official. It's official bigly matter he will. He's going to get a lot of offers just. As such a feel for. People in a feel for the game and I think he I think he will be great at managing a bullpen. The attributes I think go because he he's been through everything as a player. He's been on the edge of oblivion as far as his career where he thought he was he was done backup single a how long are we gonNa do this broken the big leagues you know little reiter than most people do and counted out every time and found a way you know he went to the Pacific just on on that was that was luck too I mean the guy the guy who who scouted him had two hundred and Seventy five or two hundred, eighty tapes of guys hit and they pick Stephen vote of all the people like guys. Just every assault career was like fate and he just a lot of these guys I mean the get there but he's he's a special special guy because he was on the edge living with his career he bound a way to. Not Get through that backing up at single laying working his way up in the Disney starting off for whatever it was thirty two Tampa Bay, and then got another shot with the as and the rest is history is really solid big league manager I feel just a great communicator. Let's. Do tremendous readers there another one or two that you really like. It's called elevator standing strangers feel elevator tension eyes darting no words.

And the third line is solve it play better your that all the time with Guy's GonNa Complain About AAA travel is another guy saying, Hey, play better want to worry about it right Not.

I love putting it together. Where can folks pick it up? gumming Johnny Dansko Dot Com. So Johnny Dansko last name is the arrest W. Johnny Dot Com and go. Then we'll pick out whatever you WANNA do and we'll. At first order from Germany the other day actually. Yeah. The Guy The guy was. He's a hard river listener. He he came over to Germany several years ago and he listened to all the Games and heath on twitter books. So He Said you. Pay Pals rules or something I couldn't ship it to Germany from Fan Wisconsin guys going to get it to him in in Germany that was the first though the first river cat listener from Germany. Pretty cool. Yeah. Wonderful stuff. So so Johnny you grew up as a spoiled kid. Spoil Kid L. A. and I know this because you grew up listening to Vince Gully and chick hearn. On the dodgers chick on the Lakers you. And you probably can't just every area had their own vinci which they didn't what was your What was their influence on you in your broadcast career? Oh man you're right. Spoiled listening to those guys are sure. I, you know chick hearn was if perhaps even more of an influence than men's skelly was I mean, Tacoma, the Lakers I go to bed every night listening to. Her and it just. Amazing cabinet him call call the Games Popcorn Machine yo-yoing down ninety, four, hundred, fifty hunker would express the extra cool in the battery's getting hard all that he's an incredible. Famous line was the Lakers couldn't beat the sisters of mercy right now and just about ankle all all his lines he just was so great and so quick. I loved I. Love Listening to check and, of course Vinnie as Vinnie. You know he's. He was amazing. So I was very lucky I one of those guys and I would. And there might influences their the reason I got into doing what I'm doing and I feel so fortunate to have listened to and Bob Miller with the. Kings. Was Awesome to start all three of those guys but I want to honor chicken Vinnie in with A. With a High Q. I've been been in a couple of my name but yeah. But yeah, those were my two influences in those guys that. I just started enjoyed your raised in the raised with those guys listen to those guys raised with chicken. chickeny. So I was really really lucky in that regard for sure. Well, you've been you know in the business broadcasting ball for what three decades Cedar Rapids came to. California. High Desert Fresno Grizzlies in. Then you've been in Sacramento since a one I believe in God was the Oakland A.'s was two, thousand fourteen and became the giant so. You're kind of historian in Bay area baseball in in the river cats I mean with the attendance and the wins and losses in the championships that's kind of a marquee. Minor League affiliate. Isn't it will No doubt about it I mean we. Are. So. Fortunate Cats had that. Incredible run in the as result as gave us. So much talent and it was just. It was situated we at one point one. CanNot twelve visit titles or nine out of eleven or something it was just Something crazy and all those. You know. Four championships with the as five total. Now with the giants coming in in the when championship last year in two thousand nineteen. First team to in three AAA championships when the cynical see championships in the three piece and three you know aaa championships but yet scorching it so many great players through the years in through the as it came up with us through to the as. We just very, very lucky. It was it was it. Wasn't credible Ron, and now I think the giants you know after you know giants went from nine, hundred, Ninety, eight to. What was it last year? Not Making the playoffs AAA rights that have been twenty one years. So as a giant truck affiliate so so for them to. Do what they did last year in Sacramento when it all was was. It was pretty neat to see that after after they had struggled so much in Fresno. River would dominate Fresno when when river catch for the as and the giants were in were in Fresno and it. It was domination for years. But now it's a little bit more and I think the giants are putting. A little bit more stock winning at AAA, which is nice. Well, they handed out some triple eight rings the other day off House because. So many of those guys were part of that team. Did you get a rainman? John Idea got reading. I. GotTa Rings that was. Fifth Ring on my with the river castaway seventh ring and Minor League Baseball as I ninety four Cedar. Rapids Ninety seven high desert then go three Oh four or seven wait and then two, thousand and nineteen with. Where the river cat. So you have five river cat rings. Amazing. Amazing. Well, from the current giants were there for the championships I mean a lot of guys were called up already and they still want it I mean is there anybody on this roster who was there at the very end of the AAA season last year? I'm trying to think I don't think Sammy Selman was Solan was already. 'cause Roger. Leo. Was Up do bond was up and. Was Up. The all worm. Thank like I don't think there was anybody else. That's a male he went. What about you got to know do ban what what about his confidence level I I've never seen that kid come up. Like knowing, he's going to succeed as much as this guy a lot of guys come up I, hope I do well, I i. You know I want to do well but this guy, I know I'm going to do I, want to win a gold glove and Sarah dude, you haven't ever played the position. That much confidence in me he does carries himself that way too. It's it's remarkable. The Guy so confident and and every you know we saw him at first I game I saw him play was with San Antonio. And I heard about this guy and the very next day he was traded. So we just changed clubhouses he went from San Antonio the Sacramento clubhouse. So we got to see him as a river cat after at first time seeing CNN play next days with rare cats it was bizarre. So he just changed clubhouses. Recovering Cohen did with the as and just. Three. So he was with with us and he was he was great. You know and and. You know I think. He's guys he's going to succeed and he's got to. You went to Capitol Christian out here in. Sacramento. After being from under US, and he's just a treat to watch where he plays the secondary short third. Centerfield. Made some base running blunders with us I think at the end of the year and made some mistakes but but learn like one thing I will say like. He learned from him right like I A he. Bring many office is I said, you know you talk to the guy is not gonNa make the same mistake second he's learned from and make The same mistake twice and he was yeah, he's he's a tremendous player and I think it's just just once he gets a feel for the system up there once he gets. Years in really comfortable and he's going to. Put together some some impressive impressive numbers play a a competent kid. That's for sure how about Alex? dickerson. He he he was in Sacramento for a spell after the giants got him from the padres and then he came up. in June I was with the team in Arizona and he went like nine for eight. Multiple his his I quote in the clubhouse after the game he said, he said that that felt good. I was do as A. so what do you mean you do nobody says that when I first game with with a new team, I mean you're. You must have been hidden down there. and. You can't say I was do but but he's such a character on personality. All makes sense now looking back when he said I was do. The. First game the team. Yeah. He something he I was always impressed with the watching the El Paso and watch him. You know with the PADRES AAA club in skyping hit you came to us as the reason I said, he struggled a little bit with us for a while. You know he's he he got the big banks. He you know he just started to dominate you know but. I think the reason he said he was do is because he went through a little bit of a scuffle distribute games he was with the with the river cats and then got up there and had that huge game out he got called up. I. Listen I game up there or one of those but he and he just. Was He was pretty cool to see because he had not done a lot with the river catsuit when he got when he got called up one this up there and obviously they know what they're doing because he has been successful he's and he take what he puts together. Some impressive games three homer game he's GonNa. He's got some pop. He's fun to watch. Yeah. Now I was. Okay. One More Guy Austin. Slater seemed like he was in aaa forever and it's kind of a feel good story Stanford Kid. And despite a couple of injuries at Saddam back this year he's hitting the ball. Ton The coaching staff really relies on him. Did you anticipate him being a really good big leaguer? It went up and down with me like I always knew the talent was there and I always find a reason i. say that is because he used the US yours using entire field and he showed that pop to right center in never really went on any big slumps never song going like A. Two for twenty, six, hundred, zero this didn't see. He's never did consistent solid player good athlete market I mean just smart. he he plays it off like he's not but he's very intelligent kid kid he's. Twenty. Eight years old going up but he was the but he's really tells you man and he's and I. So yes and no I mean I knew he'd without success. I just I think he's he's going to have a nice nice career and he's getting a lot of confidence. You know one thing. One hundred helped out a lot when I went up there with his competence and so I think he's GonNa. He's GonNa. Do some damage de fun to watch an he you know. He I love the fact that he taken just take that pits the other way power to right center and it he's. He's obviously great clubhouse guy to everybody loves them that An. Rep to I love to see that and the player. That's cool. So yeah, he said he had great conversations with not only about baseball, but about life and politics and he's really well rounded and fun deductive. Yeah. There was a time. The giants wanted him to hit for a lot more power but he Brings to the table so much more than than just that Yes. So the book goodnight am Yup all life through Haiku, and you know I was speaking about lessons Some of some of the poetry including. Why veterans pick up the spreads when they come down to the minors worst why scouts our heart and soul of organizations the behind the scenes of Game Day employees, what they mean the sounds of the game. At. What we I players can't be thin-skinned in the clubhouse and yes. Just great stuff man. So again. Appreciate a brother was. Yeah the little insights, the thing about All those little things in baseball maybe the fan doesn't know about are in there and you know the things that as reported, you know about that a little superstitions in the clubhouse. It's there's so much to baseball. And it's. The same year and I think, I. Think People like it and I really appreciate you. Talking to me about it. Thanks for listening to the giants slash podcast. Henry Showman, I will continue to deliver podcasts through the final weeks of the two thousand twenty season.

According to multiple reports a handful of Minor League baseball teams are in some serious trouble in the one hundred fifty minor league baseball teams forty two could wheel sees set to lose their affiliation with minors and the impact dish live in the stadium. Shut why that's part of America. Let's go back to November of two thousand nineteen. Mlb and Minor League baseball remained in a stance as they were on a new professional baseball agreement. Replacing the one set to expire at the end of this year then came a proposal. One that would drastically change the landscape of Minor League Baseball thus cutting the major league affiliations of forty two teams in the lower levels of the minors mostly short season and rookie ball teams. Here's MLB commissioner. Rob Manfred arguing. The strain minor league creates on the players. Inadequate showers tiny locker rooms. No place for players to eat no place for players to work out travel. That is not acceptable for professional players. Bus Rides long six eight ten hours and trust me in a lot of cases. It's not on a luxury cruise liner. It's on a school bus. We think are Minor League. Players need to be paid better. You want to maintain the status while we can maintain the status quo. But we'RE GONNA maintain it with one hundred and twenty franchises. That are functional. You don't have a one hundred sixty functional franchise but as Minor League Baseball look to find its feet and remained defiant against this proposal then came cove in nineteen bringing a totally new type of storm as ice latest cover story written by Robert Sanchez deals with exactly this. We talked to senior editor Jason Shorts. Who Work with Robert on the piece to tell us more about joining us. Now is senior editor Jason Schwartz Jason. Thank you so much for joining us. Louis could be her Jason Fascinating insightful. Piece from Robert Sanchez. Which you can now read. Sl DOT COM. Let's let's paint a picture. I to our listeners who may not be familiar with the world of Minor League Baseball pandemic aside. How do these clubs exist and what is their affiliation to Melby right so there are one hundred sixty minor league baseball clubs Across the country are affiliated with Major League clubs. You know you get your AAA AA single a rookie league in sort of alphabet soup down there all sorts of SINGLE-A clubs but the idea is this is where tomorrows mobile be players trained today. I'M COMING THROUGH THE SYSTEM. Get Ready For the big leagues. What are some of the attendance numbers in a minor league game so it really varies But by and large they've been pretty good lately. We've seen over the years. Minor League baseball turned into really a sustainable business last year. Was I believe the fifteenth consecutive year with more than forty million fans and there were forty one and a half million which was up million from the year before. So we've really seen that minor league clubs. In addition to featuring baseball prospects have really developed a business model based on in game entertainment. Heaven you know crazy promotions and races and all you know all this other stuff going on around the game to get fans in the door and it's been very successful absolutely soccer. Being my first sport I always connected to lower league. Soccer in many ways specifically from the hyper local perspective and given the hyper local attraction how important is minor league baseball to communities around the country. Would you say we've seen teams in all sorts of places Become big parts of their community. And that's one of charming things about Minor League Baseball. Is You've got minor league teams relatively big cities like Charlotte North Carolina Sacramento California. And also you know towns across across this great land the prairies Etcetera Etcetera In small towns where you know maybe a thousand people go to a game. But it's you know a big part of what goes on locally in the summer let's focus on the pandemic and how the miners have been affected due to. Albee's cost cutting plans as the piece obviously talks about what were the first piece of news that impacted the miners as Cova nineteen. Hit right so right now. The the minor leagues are really getting hit with a one two punch so before even the pandemic Existed Major League. Baseball was trying to renegotiate the status of its agreement with a minor league baseball. There's this thing called the professional baseball agreement that basically governs allies hundred. Sixty affiliates basically relate to the major league baseball clubs that That provide their players. It was time to renegotiate it. Major League Baseball had proposed a plan that reportedly can lead to the limitation of some forty two affiliations. Which probably mean elimination for a two clubs? It'll be tough to stay in business without those affiliations and all sorts of other matters. Boil DOWN TO SAVING Major League Baseball. Some money they say making it easier to develop prospects in more modern away and ultimately give much greater control over the minor league system retried now sorber crazy quilt patchwork of local ownership etc etc teams. Make these deals to be affiliated with clubs in different cities in. Mlb released when something much more top down that that was part one participant endemic which is blown apart business model for for reasons. You Can Imagine. Wow so you know even before the pandemic In a way minor league I if it was a box those already going kind of down and then suddenly Cova nineteen head and it's in its knees. I imagine. Yeah it's sort of soon. Nami on top of earthquake But Yeah I mean so major league baseball we know. Obviously attendance provides a lot of revenue. But it's really the TV deals that are really what drives a lot across professional major professional sports NBA MLB NFL. Whatever Minor League Baseball obviously those? Tv deals don't exist so teams are totally dependent on gate on attendance to make a revenue if you can't have fans in the seats that's just devastating. Your Business Model right as you read the piece you know I it. It's full of information based on a survey which indicated some real eye winding statistics. What are some of the most revealing numbers? Would you say Rob Sanchez writer? Who wrote this piece have been talking about? How can we capture? What Minor League? Baseball is going through right now. Because just common sense tells you you look at the landscape and go boy you know. Some of these teams are going to be in trouble It'll be real surprising if everyone makes it through so we were wondering how they might be affected so we sent a survey out to all one hundred sixty affiliated minor league clubs and ask them a few different questions not too many. 'cause we went to get responses but one of them was on a scale of one to ten. Please tell us how you think revenue lost this year will affect your ability to operate next year and in the future. Both for your club and for other clubs. You know the old sort of like how will you do? How will your neighbors do And answers we got back. We're pretty startling. Twenty four hundred sixty eight teams that replied which were pretty happy with that response. Rate Gang Sixty eight team so little more than a third told us on a scale one to ten. They're above a seven concerned about their ability to continue operating next year. So that's pretty. High level. Twelve clubs gave us a ten out of ten. That worried about their concerns. Twelve out sixty eight clubs that replied and it wasn't just the lower level once I was to AAA clubs thirteen. Aa Ones and that's especially startling. Double as the level where a lot of the prime prospects are really developed in you. Sort of think. Those franchises being established in a lot of cases And when we asked about other teams numbers were even more startling. Twenty six of the sixty eight teams told us that they're concerned. Level for other teams around them was a ten out of ten. Seventy about three quarters of the teams tell us it was above seven out of ten so the broad takeaway was everyone's worried about teams going out of business. Some clubs are worried about themselves. Going out of business. But everyone's worried about other clubs go now business as well another two big things. We took away from. Our survey was more than half. The teams told us that they had already furloughed or laid off staffers. That was in late April so wouldn't be unreasonable to think that those numbers are even higher now And we saw that fifty five of the sixty eight teams it replied. So that's eighty one percent which is pretty startling. High number had applied for and received P P loans as part of the bailout efforts. Robert did follow up interviews with several of the teams that replied and the thing we heard. Is You know these loans were getting from the government you know. They're nice though bias. A few weeks bias on you know eight weeks may be that if we don't start to get revenue coming in get people in the doors. It's GONNA be a big trouble for us. We'll return after the short messages. This is Jon. Wertheim if you like this show and our sports illustrated podcast. There's another show. We think you should check out. It's called against the rules against the rules. Bestselling author and journalists. Michael Lewis's searing could fairness in every aspect of American Life. Financial Markets Newsrooms sports arenas courts of law and more in season. Two now in full swing. He examined the role of coaches in society. It wasn't that long ago that we only had coaches and sports. Now they're everywhere. There are life coaches and death coaches. You can hire a code to improve your executive skills your online dating performance. Even your charisma but coaching has also become an odd source of unfairness. Just look around and ask yourself who has access to these coaches and the edge they provide in who doesn't in. What does that mean for? All of us subscribed to against the rules and apple podcasts. Or wherever you listen brought to you by Pushkin Industries Jason Obviously You mentioned as piece mentions how this affects communities how directly doesn't affect local communities right well affects communities in a bunch of ways. Obviously there are jobs. There is the local you know economic engine that runs through these baseball teams with advertising promotions etc etc. When new started coming out about Major League baseball wanting to eliminate some affiliations you saw out of politicians political Brouhaha Bernie Sanders Center from Vermont. A former BURLINGTON. Vermont was pretty out outspoken. About it in part because the Vermont Lake Monsters Burlington Vermont. Or one of the teams Report is potentially slated to lose their affiliation with the club and then perhaps go out of business so and you know what he was talking about. These are allowed jobs. These are good for the community. These minor league baseball teams. There's sort of a hub of activity and losing. Those teams is a real loss for a lot of places and there's also really a cultural element to it too. You Know Minor League. Baseball is really deeply woven in in our culture. In a Lotta ways. Think Bull Durham. We think of all these other movies in whatever but you know for the people who go to these Games are regulars at Minor League Baseball Stadiums. You know one thing that we've seen a lot of small towns. Is that local families. Host players in Robert has a great scene in the story of some of these host families Going in hanging out outside one of these stadiums in Colorado Springs. Because that team hasn't been doing curbside takeout with a ballpark Detroit to make little money to keep their kitchen staff going in employed and you know we saw in the piece Robert Taxes. Somebody's host families from this baseball team in. They're all you know. It's part of their culture. It's farther community. It's the thing they love doing every summer. And and that's one of the things that's really at risk here. Yeah that's a really good point because one of the things that I always wanted to know as well as obviously there's a lot of Latino talent dot com and they're hosted by these one of my favorite movies is sugar right that movie about the Dominican player that comes to the US etc so how in terms of players like how is it affecting them. Because we're not talking about you know your big time players here. We're talking about those folks who are just trying to make a living out of playing baseball right you know. They're sort of like baseball's own form of cultural exchange. You get you know players from all over the world especially the Caribbean coming to these small towns across the country and then living with folks in terms of how it affects players I it will affect how players are developed. Teams may try to develop more players in their own complexes so to speak spring training complexes that already have extended spring. Training teams. Were rookies are kept basically keep the players in house instead of sending them out to these minor league teams to to try to work them up to that point you mentioned about you know how the image of Minor Leagues and the way that MLB maybe streamlines minor league. My look different. How would that look like what would be a vision of? Mlb and their affiliates with minors right so In fairness to Major League baseball. They say that their argument is that in redoing this agreement with the minor leagues they want a more modernized system. That's you know. Hayes prospects. More gives them more modern facilities. Modern training basically just brings the whole thing to speed Right now we have this system that sort of developed over the years and is quite charming and lovable but also maybe not how you design it now where you have very you know. All these teams over the countries with different owners in major league teams. Go make deals with them to their affiliates. And sort of this patchwork you know so you might have a baseball team in California with a triple eight team in Nevada and a double A. Team in Arkansas. Who knows I'm making that up? But it's like I said sorry. This crazy quilt league. Baseball would like to see something. More geographically contiguous. I think everything sort of more streamlined. In a sense that You know teams are near other teams that they're playing in teams are near their parent ball clubs and also just gives something that gives 'em. Ob grayer control over the development of the prospects which is probably one of the biggest parts of this right. It'll be clubs. As the PS reminds us are not directly allowed to pump cash into their affiliates. But they've been helping in other ways or how. The communication between miners majors in the outbreak. So from what we understand is it's pretty nonexistent You know my major league. Baseball clubs per per various rules are not allowed to directly Give cash their affiliates and say. Hey we're going to keep you in business but with changed a lot of the executives that Robert spoke to his Geez. We haven't even gotten a call. Hey how are you are you guys? GonNa be okay. Is there anything we can do to help You know right now. Minor League Baseball and Major League baseball are in the middle of a really tough negotiation over that professional baseball agreement. And it said it's not allow love loss right now and frankly you know this is a little bit conjecture but Major League Baseball was taken a lot of flack for this plan. That was going to eliminate a lot of teams if the pandemic essentially does that work for them than it gets them where they WANNA be without them. Having to look like the villain you mentioned previously about the importance obviously of TV contract negotiations. You know the other part of this is local. Tv contract negotiations is if a season gets canceled. Because you know an empty stadium I imagined is better than no action at all I is. They're thinking of many clubs to keep the action going. You know in order for at least to get some kind of you know not just ball play action but also you know some revenue so unfortunately the economics of that just don't work for Minor League Baseball Not Enough People WanNA watch a buoy based socks. Pick Your Team. Sacramento River Cats Toledo mud hens. Not Enough People WanNa Watch those games on. Tv FOR THE TV deals to be really worth anything if they exist at all so one of the questions that we asked We asked in our survey was if there if games are not played this year. How much of your revenue expect to lose and almost every response we got was ninety five to one hundred percent teams get revenue Minor League Baseball teams only get revenue from game games being played. That's people buying tickets paying for concessions. Buying you know hats at the at the store. Whatever and you know that's another thing. Major League Baseball obviously has big merchandise business. You know you might go online by Red Sox Era Baltimore Orioles or whatever but not nearly as many people are going online and buying that Toledo mud. Hens hat is really getting people in the stadium and making your money that way and obviously also on advertising That goes on That you know and all that's in stadium as well so without games there's really no economic mildest more Minor League Baseball Jason. I'm throwing one out of left field to you here. Is there when you were doing this? Investigation alongside obviously the writer Robert Sanchez. Was there a specific area? Location spot region in the. Us was looked even more concerning than others. Which is a striking thing was that there wasn't and you know like I said one of the charms of Minor League Baseball is you know they've they've played Played main they played in Wyoming. You know on the prairie. It's big cities small cities all over. And you know it. There wasn't a discernible pattern of like. Hey Teams in you know. Bigger cities are better off or teams in well so obviously some of the more established teams might be better off the ones you probably know of but you know they're they're teams all over the country that are hurting their teams over the country that are going to be in danger of going out of business if there are no games year. Cova nineteen isn't equal opportunist. I guess Jason Give you one more question as you were doing this piece. Let let's say that you're writing a follow up six months from now. I mean it's all conjecture it's all hypothetical but what would you say would be the outcome here? How can this be solved? If we're looking at a positive light if you're thinking about the six months from now you know one of the one of the things that That's in the piece that some people some minor league baseball executives mentioned to Robert Was that if we want minor league baseball to continue to end sort of continue in the way that we've all come to know and love it that there's going to have to be some sort of congressional action there will have to be some sort of bailout and that sort of wild to think about that you know were at a point where we're going to be asking Congress to Bailout Minor League baseball of all things while I don't think that's necessarily likely I think what that does is show you how dire the situation has become so if in six it does look. It does not look likely that there will be games with fans this year And how that shakes out for Minor League Baseball you know. I wouldn't want to predict but it certainly doesn't look good Jason Schwartz Senior editor a really good piece. Thank you so much for joining us. All right thanks Louise. Jason Reminds Minor League struggles are more than just a sporting issue and in order to fully understand them. It's vital to take into account the towns and cities in which they exist. If Congress does indeed take a role it's because of the understanding that the success of Minor League ballparks and its employees are directly related to hyper local sustainability it's about the neighborhoods and the people that live inside and that's an American pastime. That can't be ignored. Thanks to Jason Shorts for joining me today. Make sure to read Robert Sanchez article on SL DOT COM.

100 Bottles of Beer on the Plane (The Legend of Wade Boggs)

"Take everybody I'm Rachel. Veneta and I'm reading for Font and this is hall of shame. Rachel Hey, girl, feel like we should start the podcast with this. Hold on. Obey. That's the sound of Rachel cracking. Open a Miller. Love it. Because today Rachel Jagger is celebrating Major League, baseball, being back yes. Yes, and also. The subject of our story today. Legendary baseball player classic mustache ever and. Drinker Mr, wade, Anthony Boggs. That's how people describe me to classic Mustache. Suffer think most of us. Women in quarantine are now classic mustache ever quarantine. Shears Hugh my, friend. Cheers Cheers Away Bob Wade boggs here we go. We're going to be drinking on the minute. Yeah, every minute we are going to take a sip of beer is I look like? You know a a big set. Up even okay like Gulp okay. We're going back to college. That's cool. This is my average. Monday afternoon. When we get towards the end of the story, you're going to see why. Yeah, it's all for our Guy Wade bugs. Yeah, full disclosure I liked baseball, but I'm not a huge baseball fan so I don't know why. I don't know why I have a beer in my hand I don't know this story about Wade boggs. You'RE GONNA. Be So excited at the end of it because you're gonNA. Know that you honored his legacy. For All I know you could be absolutely lying and we're just getting drunk on a Monday afternoon. That's day anything. All right girl cheers to start of our story. Cheers to you! Cheers his I. Guess Am I drink already know I love that. You're drinking the highlife. Sorry, but this is jammed beers so I love it. What other intriguing there! I actually do here, so I'm in my closet drinking out of a beer mug. Okay to our story cheers cheers. Wade boggs was born June Fifteenth Nineteen fifty-eight in Omaha Nebraska happy belated dude here's. A couple of weeks out of his birthday. My birthday's in October early, cheers. Early, cheers. Your birthday just passed here so that. Shears, and that I'm going to die, I'm GonNa die if we really okay. All right here we go, so he was born into a military family that moved around a bunch until they settled in Tampa Florida when he was eleven. Like you do in Tampa okay bogs went to plant high school in Tampa, he played both baseball and football. They're just like an all around athletic talent. He was so good at football that he was quarterback on the team. Oh! Shit up to being a punter and place kicker to avoid getting injured so that he could preserve his baseball career because I love, he was such a good left-footed kicker that he was offered a scholarship to the University of South. Carolina just for context, being a left-footed kicker is seen as an advantage in football, because basically you spin it in the other direction, and most receivers are used to getting because most kickers are right foot head the point of this being I'm left handed and footed. Should I become an NFL kicker? Anyway, that wasn't Wade's dream and he didn't take the scholarship because this guy was a baseball guy, and after he graduated high school, he was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the seventh round of the nineteen seventy-six mlb draft. He signed with the club for seventy five hundred dollars. We talked about this a little bit in the duck. LS episode, but basically in Major League baseball. When you're drafted, you don't just like get this big contract and signed with a team. You play for the team's minor league. League team right and you get paid peanuts correct so a professional baseball team has their own network of Minor League teams that are basically there for player development, and every minor league team is contract. It's one of the major league teams, so for example if you play for the Sacramento River cats, the goal would be that eventually you would be signed by their professional major league affiliate, the San Francisco giants. That's kind of the goal. So bogs played third base for the pawtucket Red Sox another great minor league. Minor League. Teams have the best names. The best names added to the merge added to that. The merch. Anyway the pawtucket Red Sox are the Boston Red Sox AAA affiliate. Okay, so that's where he played fun side note when Wade was playing in the minors, he played in the longest game in baseball history, lasting thirty three innings and eight hours twenty five minutes against cal ripken junior, and the Rochester Red Wings, which are the MINNESOTA TWINS AAA affiliate exciting. Cheers. Cheers the longest Ayman based listerine a long. I'm almost done my first beer. This is what we're doing. Wade boggs and be proud. Okay, I have to refill. Okay go for it. I need to drain beer. We're not far enough into the story for this to be happening, but that's the point of this. This is for Wade okay. All right so during his last year with the miners back to wade boggs, she led the league with a three thirty five batting, average, one, hundred sixty seven hits and forty one doubles, which is very good as a result of that excellent playing in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two, he got called up to the majors to play for the Boston Red Sox oh. Yeah, with them. He would have a storied career for the next decade side. Note I maybe I missed this. What position does he play Third Base Third Base? Okay, Gotcha chairs to that cheerleaders. How many beers did you debt for this situation I? Have a fridge full. So I have many beers. We'll just see what. That what is your? God. WHOA Okay, so another fun fact fogs is the player who hit a double to give the Red Sox, a five three lead going into the tenth in of the infamous beam sets in nineteen eighty cents a winning. Ron Is at second base with out three and two Louis Wilson. Little roller long first behind the. Catch. Boston player Billy Buckner. And let a routine ground ball roll through his legs, giving the victory to the New York mets, and once again preventing the red sox from going to the world series like a very famous game, because it added to the myth of the curse of the Bambino a superstition Boston fans like to blame for the team's failure to win the world series from nineteen eighteen, until two thousand and four fuck. GRUMBALL's totally screw them sieber tricky there. Why don't play softball anymore? Poor Billy buckner also. What assholes are we so tricky? Third really tricky, Uber Grandma's super good, never played baseball. They seem really tricky. You've never played like softball off ball. No, I played football I've just never played baseball counts that counts anyway. The curse of the Bambino name stemmed from the fact that there was an eighty six year drought that began with the season. The Red Sox sold the superstar player Babe Ruth who was of course name Bambi now for one hundred twenty five thousand dollars to their hated rivals. The New York Yankees. Bambino might be the greatest nickname in all of sports. It's a great nickname. Point is that's just like a fun about boggs? Use a part of that infamous game. Anyway. He had this great career at the Red Sox, and in ninety three after a decade in Boston bogs like Babe Ruth was traded to the Yankees where he helped them win their first world series in eighteen years, which incidentally would be his only championship, but he got it, and that's all you want, and your crown one at least one championship after the Yankees won the series in game six boggs memorably celebrated by jumping on the back of an NYPD. Accuser just completing victory, lap Pat Wade boggs. Still on Horseback Going around the field here at the stadium. That's one way. Touring the field with his index finger in the air, even though he was totally afraid of horses, apparently had of horses much like Yourself Rachel grossing movie. Just like a fun guy. Wade boggs cheers to him. Cheers see, you said okay, so Wade Boggs wins. The championship with the Yankees Rides on the horse so exciting. In nineteen, Ninety Eight, he moved to the Tampa Bay devil rays where he finished out the final two seasons of his long fame career, and it is final season on August seventh, nineteen, ninety nine. We're about to cheers again. He collected his three thousand pit and became a member of the. The illustrious three thousand hit club. Cheers to that. That's exciting watch literally a movie called Mr Three thousand I mean it's a big deal. Okay, the point being Wade boggs becomes a member of the three thousand hit club. What a career! This guy love using so box attributes much of his success to adhering to a very strict daily routine to put it another way. Our Dude is like mad superstitious. Like! Okay, he is considered one of the most superstitious athletes of all time examples. Oh, he ate chicken before every game. Because it's quote lean, and you can eat it without putting on any body fat and earned himself the nickname chicken man, and he was released specific about eating at two PM. To that was like chicken heating time to even wrote a cookbook in nineteen, eighty-four called foul, no spelled F. O.. W. L.. Foul Ball but is called foul tips with his favorite chicken recipes. It was all just chicken recipes. Yes, because he's a superstitious man, some other things. He woke up at the exact same time every day. Oh, he ran sprints at seven seventeen PM. This was said to be done in hopes of going seven for seven at the plate. He also just had a weird fixation on the number seven and seventeen. So you know that's how superstitions work. Do you have a like a lucky number. Yeah fifteen for Vince Carter babying and he just retired. I'm devastated. Is it adorable that you're lucky numbers, fifteen and number sixteen? Stop Right now and your axe. That's really that's really cute. More Wade Boggs superstitions. He was so precise about his route to and from his position on the field like it had to be the same thing that he liked carved a path to the dugout. Because, he never veered. This is a weird one that I couldn't figure out why, but he drew the Hebrew word, hi, meaning life into the batter's box before each at bat, though he himself is not Jewish. Centers. Doing at no, he asked. Fenway Park announcer, sherm feller, not to say his uniform number when he introduced him, because boggs wants broke out of a slump on when fellow forgot to announce his number, so he's never do it again. Never announced number again. That's wild that he's so present the. He notices like that's why. That's why that's wild wild. Here's a hilarious one. He believed that sex before a game weakens your legs, and you need strong legs to play third base so I'm guessing he didn't have sex before games ever. Are you totally thought you were? GonNa go in the opposite direction of that? He was like I believe that having sex right before a game I'll say. This weighed my son just like a piece of advice. Have your superstition go in your benefit like? Favor. Here's my deal with all of these who can argue with the results through it was a hall of Fame Baseball Player. His career batting average was three, twenty eight, and he had one thousand fourteen career. which is runs batted in which is very very very good. He finished his career with three thousand ten hits, which put him in the top thirty in major league baseball history like he was awesome, so. Whatever fucking works, do it. Whatever floats your boat. He was a twelve time all star at third base, a five time American league batting champion, and won two Golden Glove Awards and eight silver slugger awards. He is in the Boston. Red Sox Hall of fame had his Jersey retired, both by the Red Sox, and the devil rays, and he was a first ballot hall of Famer and that. Is the big old deal. A first valid hall of Famer is a player who's elected to the hall of fame on his first appearance on the Baseball Writers Association of America Ballot and being a first ballot player basically symbolizes being above even all the other hall of Famers who also awesome. It's kind of first of all cheers. Worthy of a cheers yeah, chatty is a career worth toasting. Okay, here's some other first ballot hall of famers. Just see you know the kind of leagues. Wade boggs was playing in Babe Ruth who've talked about already Jackie. Robinson Willie mays. Hank Aaron. Joe Dimaggio Reggie Jackson Tony Gwynn. Greg Maddux Ken Griffey Junior, and most recently captain clutch himself Derek jeter so like. This is. Awesome Company, no denying that Wade Boggs is a legend, and not just in Baseball Rachel. Here's where our day drinking comes into play. This is finally all GonNa make sense. It's all coming full circle a detail about Wade. Boggs career that I find especially impressive as I'm buzzed on. What is my third beer? Is that he accomplished all of it while drinking. Beer, you could imagine you cannot imagine as you and I are just on our third beers. We don't even know, but before I tell you more about that. Hall of shame is brought to you by policy genius.

Boggs is a baseball king Drinking reputation is as if not more legendary than his career. Wow! Okay, we're about to say legend a lot, but you know what when it is what it is, you just call out. Legends deserved. Legends deserve to be called legends alive. How Ya you know what I think? We as a people like were so like stingy with our praise, and I'm like. Don't be Stingy Wade boggs. If you're legend, I'll say that word a million times. You deserve it. I love this. Jealous. Is this me just wishing? I was a legend that literally anything. Okay legend has it when Wade boggs traveled across the country with his team, he would pound unspeakable amount of beer, and then he would go play baseball the next day like you and I. Don't have a game tomorrow. Resolve first. Second that's insane to me right off the bat because beer is the head, the. Like if we've learned nothing, it's like Tequila. My Dude if he's not having sex before games like that's also another way to burn off the Cowles on the beer. So he goes on these cross country flights with his team like you deal and he would drink just like ungodly amounts of beer, and then he would just go play the next day, and have this hall of fame career that he had the most famous tale of Wade boggs drinking was the time it was rumored that he drinks sixty four beers. Sixty four. So just for context UNM beer three. and. We're Roland drinking tall boys. Okay, so we drink sixty four beers on. From Boston to Angeles Sixty Four. That's so a flight from Boston to La is around six hours that means he had one beer for every six minutes or ten beers for every hour. He was on the plane. There is an episode of. Philadelphia greet show showdown about said flight and bogs actually makes a cameo. Oh, which I take is confirmation that this rumor is absolutely true. Here's what's even more insane. That number sixty four is disputed by bogs himself, not because it's too high, but because it's. In two. Thousand Fifteen Charlie Day, allege on the tonight show. The box had told him he actually drank hundred seven beers one hundred seven. You can handle seventy beers I mean well. He told me that the real the actual number he's like he pulled me aside Charlie. Really. It was one hundred seven. What? Yes, so how does? Cheers Tha that also I'm stunned. I am absolutely stunned. I would be dead twice. Traits that many bland. Was He great? He was great. Although, I'm pretty sure, he was drinking beer filming, 'cause we. Prop here and then I noticed at one point. He's drinking now like he's he's you know he's tall. Later bogs all confirmed all of it. He told TMZ most benefited. You've ever drank of one day one day. Over one hundred seriously. Is it. With that, you could tolerate Hollick. Holiday yeah, it goes down there and then I take off. That's amazing. I love getting drunk on an airplane. It's really fun. It's so fun because flying sucks. But you and I when we tugging dragon airplay, Hey, girl! I'll get that Chardonnay. Second. Let me talk about Wade. Boggs keying drug an airplane. If he drink a hundred beers on a flight cross country that would mean. He drank one beer, every three point, seven minutes or around sixteen per hour. That's like a tight schedule Kim believe they have that many beers on the plane, but there probably flying like private I don't know how that Shit works when you're in A. A baseball team probably like load 'em up Wade's coming lane learning up seventeen cases here we go I just feel like the stamina that the metabolism of that shoutout to Mr Wade Boggs. That is why you and I day drinking today, 'cause. We would be not honoring him if we didn't do this while we told the store if we were just doing a regular, you are podcast. Shameful like we owe him in the way that he drink this beer and then did his job. We owe him drinking all this fear doing art. and. I'm sure more visibly drunk after a beer and he is after one hundred fifteen. All right. Here is a funny quote. I found okay so Jeff Nelson a former Yankees pitcher recalls bogs drinking Miller lite constantly. Cheers Champagne Beers beers. So? He claims he didn't believe it. About kind of the infamous stories of bogs drinking and especially about that specific story about the Boston to L. A. Flight until he saw himself on a different trip. Here's a quote. It made me laugh so hard. It's GonNa. Make me laugh harder now because I had a lot of beer. Okay. I'm in a recount it to you in full. Here we go I'm GONNA poor little more beer than them and our cat it to you. Okay. Here we any minute now here. We here we go. This is what Nelson said. I'm not kidding you Steve, so I'm guessing Nelson was talking to some guy named Steve. You. Know what I mean okay. Here He Asli Seriously Wade was the kind of guy who is always the first one at the clubhouse so prompt. so He'd get to the clubhouse and he'd bring a six pack with him. He'd be there drinking a beer. When someone showed up, and as we were all packing our stuff up out of our lockers and getting her bags ready for the trip, Wade would sit there and drink the whole six pack. This is experience. Half dozen now at the time we were flying out of New Jersey, so it was somewhat of a drive from Yankee Stadium to the airport in New Jersey. Wade would drink another couple of beers on the bus to the airport. So now we're a six pack in another couple. In at the time, we were flying this older airplane. It make it across the country without refueling and it wasn't. She's S. Rachel, we live in different times scared and it wasn't the fastest airplane in the sky, so we would stop in north, Dakota or something United States. Here, we are far no. Wade would drink about a half rack between new, Jersey and North Dakota, and it would take about a half hour to an hour to repeal once. We got there, so he'd have a few more beers while we were grounded in north. Dakota I've lost count. Let me ask you. This. was anybody concern. I my girl Reggina was cranking down that many beers on our worldwide tour I'd be like. Somebody, call someone. It's wild, right? What is different time wow. Okay? Probably doing steroids and cocaine and MLB at this point, and he's like I'm just drinking beer. Here's the end of the club. Once. We got back in the air from North Dakota weighed would drink another ten eleven twelve beers on the way out to the west coast, the whole flight from coast to coast, usually took about seven hours. We touchdown at sea. Hop on the bus headed to the Kingdom and Wade would have another beer or two on the bus. Then all of us would get to the kingdom, and unpack her bags and sit around and BS with each other and Wade would have a beer in his hand the whole time. He was always one of the last people to leave the clubhouse to so I'd say that all in all. He drank over fifty beers on that trip, and this was an isolated incident. He did it almost every time. Oh my goodness, so I'm on beer for. And I? Just I don't know what you're allowed to impact here I feel like it's a lot to unpack. Yeah I do feel like back then. People are probably like that so least of our worries like he's. He was probably feeling like. A golden child compared to everybody else you be. He was Leonardo DiCaprio tap of the world on the titanic, and then the that didn't go. Has He had a kidney replacement at this point in his life because I feel? Or liver. That's what I meant great question. Let's talk about what we bugged this up to now because no answer, quick answer no! Long Answer! He retired from baseball in nineteen, ninety, nine, good for him and appeared in. Good for you and appeared in a few TV shows including cheers. Greatest Psych and as I mentioned, it's always sunny in Philadelphia one of the greats in two thousand nine, he hosted a fishing and hunting show called. Me Outdoors with Wade boggs that aired on the pursuit channel. Would Y I don't know what that is would watch. Though would what would. What is the pursuit? Album, Filo TV in an interview with Forbes told them that retirement was a relief because he didn't have to keep up with all of this superstitions rituals. It's like here's one thought you never did. You really. therion show. Correct yeah, but it's funny like He. He could give it like it's like my life works just fine without the superstitions rituals I only need it for baseball. It's an interesting line. I feel like my superstitions and rituals Kinda like extend I feel like baseball of all sports is for some reason, the most stressful I get it if a every story that we've done so far a lot of the baseball stories always end up being like they were doing doc. Els was taking drugs because he was under so much pressure Wade boggs was drinking so many beers because the. Crazy I didn't even if it's less nuts or more nets, but you think of it as less nets because it's slower, and then you realize it's just a stress fall, but I also feel like. Tennis and a very like singular sport baseball is in a way very singular sport, because guys are coming up to the plate and they're hitting. The game sometimes depends on one person. Game sometimes depends on one pitcher, so it can feel very like one person is responsible. I'm drunk. I don't know what I'm saying. Well. Let me tell you though he gave up those superstitions I'm happy to report that bugs still enjoys a cold one. Because did you know he's not gonNA. Give up beer. Who would so Rachel where at the end of our story? I could keep going I couldn't I could not. Hersman. Say Yeah, let's Party. This is a fun story. It's not as twisty in Terni. Do I just think we need it like a light break. Cheers to Wade boggs and his moustache, and all of our quarantine mustaches because look. Milwaukee has been closed as she. Shipping's spin caused. You know I've grown a mustache. Yeah, cheers to Wade. Boggs cheers to register I. Get to this point where we're just drunk and we're sent. I love doing this podcast with us.

An Amazing Journey

"In the nineteen seventies in the gay bars of san francisco killer hidden in plain sight lured his victims by drawing their portrait. And when you had them alone he'd unleashes fatal rage they call them the tube. I'm kevin fagin. I've been at the san francisco chronicle for twenty eight years. I've covered serial killers from coast to coast and this duper case. Really bothers me. The most prolific killer of gay men and modern history still walking free here the untold story of the dealer. Wherever you get your podcast. Hello and welcome to the giants slash podcast. I'm your host chronicle. Giants beat writer susan's certain. Today our guest is true. Robinson the giants minor league outfielder. I think many of you know his incredibly moving story Last year drew survived a suicide attempt and lost his eye in the process drew. Were so glad that you could join us on the podcast today and I really wanna talk to you for a lot of reasons but first of all you are now playing at aaa sacramento. What has that been like for you. Getting back to the triple a level after everything. You've gone through yes I thanks for having me obviously It's just so meaningful. I i've done a couple interviews in such sense. Cincinnati has come out. And every time i try to start talking about it but it's real of the things that no words can fully describe how good it feels For so many reasons but I guess i'll just chalk it up. Tuition is so meaningful for so many reasons for for me. My family doctors friends sports system organization. Everybody that's been involved in this last year. was it just. It just means so much to us. A credible what a journey. I obviously had a little bit of a rough first night But since then you've recorded your. I hit a season. Can you walk us through. What was that first game like for you. It had been a long time being in a real competitive minor league game for you. Yeah it was it was. It was just about everything that was envisioning throughout the whole offseason. I i had been looking forward to that moment for so long and work super hard for that moment to become a possibility. And there's so many times i didn't think is gonna actually happen but to be able to like of appreciate it and take it all in for the first time. Which is something. I wasn't very good doing before. My incident was my in my career. I i was treated very businesslike and try to not show mench motions and whatnot so to be able to kinda like understand what was happening and take it all in for once and even lets me motion album. My name is called Before the game started. And then unfortunately it's like you said it didn't go very well during the game but i was aware that just being out there was was a lot bigger than than any kind of performs i could have could have achieved so it was. It was very very fun and it was very emotional for me and everyone involved. That's absolutely amazing. I wish i had been there. What a moment Do you have many family members on hand. I told my manager two thousand three. The next day i was like man are not anyone will ever enjoy for strikeouts as much as i just did. It's probably true. Did you get to have friends family there. Yeah so gray. The the did such a great job of getting me at tickets for my family. Friends had had the doctors that helped back together at the game. I was there just so many people that were like. I said we're that we're involved with this was able to come out and and like just experienced with me and and it was just so much launch. All of us. It's amazing that's a. That's i mean you're right a four strikeout night. That's actually still incredibly special especially having all those people with you who love you and support if supported you through all of this now Tell us about your your first hit of the season. Go through the at battle little bit. Felt like it was a long time coming. Even those couple of games the results before that were not good it also felt like it was a while but I was able to stay on a south of pretty well located ashville down away and shoot it the other way which is also noticing that i wasn't very good at doing incident so it's kind of funny. I've kind of had some jokes with some friends about saying well. you know. that's why. I'm a little off right now. Because that's not what i'm usually pretty good at so refunding but Yeah i assume they contacted news. Good contact. I knew it had a chance when i saw go through. I was able to kind of ease up in really. Enjoy the whole route to first base and understand that it was a big moment and also was able to appreciate the cheering that was happening for my family and their section so Being able to get on first base kind of a relaxed environment because it was just a single and then be able to kind of acknowledge my family and friends and everyone that was. There was Again so meaningful and so powerful. Who is on the mound for las vegas. Say clinton sell you a other matters as he got the head. That's for sure. I was going to block it out for the first couple games. Every time i went up to hit What are the challenges of hitting with one i. It was you and i discussed a few months ago. Nobody's done that at the big league level and i'm still have not found anybody at the minor league level. Who's done it. So how are you finding that. Yeah it's it's definitely taking some adjustments in. It's kind of something. I might have even downplayed at first. Because i was able to do things so regularly with with my training and offseason batting practice and such and i just kind of figure that since i was kind of jesting pretty quickly there that it would happen the same way into game and get back to a pre similar feelings as to is and it's funny because i'm seeing the ball very well and i'm seeing like shapes and spin and all that like i normally would But since i am swinging missing so much. I think that i think i'm not giving it as much credit as i need to. With needing to make some adjustments so there's a level of i dunno adjustments at that brings some frustration because i'm not some still competitor wanting to compete and do well so It's there's adjustment period that i'm finding out that needs to happen and i'm obviously making a little bit of those judgments pretty quickly. So i'm i'm really happy with where i'm at and i'm really happy that i'm able to have the opportunity to do that so it's just one of those things. I'm going to have to go all in and just showing up and see what happens. Honestly that sounds like every like every hitter you know like it's probably a matter of timing more than anything and adjustments which all hitters have to deal with a pretty good job. I think of reminded myself. As often as i can that i was. I wasn't perfect. When i had to is still swung amiss and i still made mistakes and made ariza and such like that so sam doing a better job more recently Of remind myself that. Like what are we comparing these these things because before i did all the same thing so i was streaky. I in in and out of samson hot streaks and stuff when i had to is so i'm i'm anticipating the same kind of Similarities will happen one. I i mean. I'm not sure that there's much more difficult and pro sports than hitting good pitching for mean really once you get to the triple a level. Everybody is a really good pitcher. So yeah tons of guys out problems with that How the hitting coaches working with you. Obviously they have not worked with anybody that has any sort of visual issues so Do they have tips. Are they trying to do any research like have you had any good advice or things. That work You know that any of your coaches of kind of brought to you. Yeah we move. Just i think the coolest thing about is that. They're just treating me like another player which is really important for my mental side of things. I just think it's gone. Because i just getting back into the the game situations and making those judgments every day and whatever i can to be successful We've we all obviously kind of Flirted with the idea of opening up. More so i can get more like straight on vision with my bad guy because it is bad guy. That's the that. I'm using so opening up a little bit trying to stay more square. 'cause i did before incident. I did kind of turn my body a little bit more than a normal hitter. I would say so making sure. I'm not over rotating and losing a little bit of peripheral vision and getting my one of the things that i've i've learned that it comes into play. Is that my you. I don't know if you've heard that like you can always see your nose in your vision but users like to your brain decided not to pay attention to when i'm turned too much to one side. I see a little fuzzy. In inside. Corn my i like my personals which is my nose so much it creates a little bit of a it's a very miniscule blind swab basically just like some blurry nece so if i if i overrode states and my left looking at the picture i can tell because my nose it's in my mind peripherals a little too much so staying little square and staying More center is the main thing that we focus on. Wow that's so interesting. I wonder if that's something that's going to go away in time as your brain adjusted that it seems like if it does kind of all of us you know that that might be something happens. But that's that's wild but also it is a. It is a good little kind of check for you to just to know a little to definitely like. I don't see it all the time. There's only one. Like drastically turned one way in china. Look drastically the opposite with so. It's not like it. it's always there inside. My brain has to completely figured out right now but That's just one of the things that i'm learning. So just with my hitting setup more giants minor leaguer drew robinson in just a moment but a reminder i you can find all of the chronicles giants coverage at www dot sf chronicle dot com and to subscribe good sf chronicle dot com slash pod in the one thousand nine hundred s in the gay bars of san francisco killer hidden in plain sight lured his victims by drawing their portrait. And when you had them alone he'd unleashes fatal rage they call them doobie. I'm kevin fagan. I've been at the san francisco chronicle for twenty eight years. I've covered serial killers from coast to coast and this duper case. Really bothers me. The most prolific killer of game in modern history is still walking free here the untold story of the dealer. Wherever you get your podcast how about fielding. We talked about that a little bit. A few months ago and That's also something that isn't naturally gonna adjust. Click right back in because there could be things with depth perception and and things like that. How are you finding it. Yes it's going pretty well. I would say Infield has definitely been more challenging the outfield. And it's funny. Because that's another thing. That when i think back to before incident that was still a case because i think just more of a naturally built outfielder so infield was never like supernatural to me so it was really work at it to stay on the field. So yes i. I met the giants game right now as you can tell sorry about that so again trying to not to compare myself to perfection and understand that there's another level of doing right now but infield has been tough i. It's more the speed of the game. I think is was giving me trouble rather than the actual task. Because i mean pretty much haven't played a competitive game before spring training since june of two thousand and nineteen so there's a level of rust that will be needed to be knocked off whether to is or one i so Getting back in the game speed was was a pretty big challenge for me and i'm finding s taking a little bit more time but each day gets better so it's kind of like what we talked about options. First time i went on the field with with the outdoor backdrop with my gave me some trouble. So i'm just comparing it to that and understanding that i was able to get through that with just more reps so Like i said. I think each day i get a little bit more comfort in game speed stuff. Yeah i mean as long as you're getting better every day that's the goal especially at the in any time in the minor league level now when we talked earlier in the year There were times when you kind of figured baseball was over for you. You just thought it was going to be done The giants obviously have really encouraged. You and Wanted to give you the opportunity. Who has been the most supportive in in helped you the most through this with with the organization or or any number people i mean i. I don't wanna soundly shane's everyone but so many people have been so mazing to me in this organization and the fact that Takes the time to talk with me on a pretty consistent basis with all the stuff that he has on his plate. Also getting taxed from far han. When i just think it's i just think it's so so cool that guys. I have so much on. The play are able to still understand that this is like a crazy opportunity there so like on board with it And and it's not just because me and my situation. I've i've noticed that they do that with everyone in the organization which is just so cool. It just means a lot to me. It means a lot of all the other players organization because there's a level of human interaction that is meaningful rather than just a visit business mindset yeah They seem to me like they. You know kappler. All the time is telling us like he he just saw video from you and i know hundred pence. Obviously he's not. He's no longer and an active member organization. But he's taken a real interest in you and your journey and wanted to be helpful. I feel like the giants are all just so completely behind you which has been absolutely wonderful to see wh- spring training like in arizona. How did your teammates respond. Did you do people wanna to you about what you went through or do they avoid it. I mean did you have moments of uncomfortable. Interactions or did you talk to them beforehand. How did that go. Yeah i was a little bit of all of that. Honestly i i did talk to most some of the players beforehand. Some players were really interested. Some people some players were kind of given me that the side i look like is that guy got one i. Maybe what's going on here some some legislation. Maybe they know about the story yet. So and then. Eventually i addressed the whole the whole thing on on a on a spring training wide. Zoom call in desert. Some some stuff that i've learned my experiences in everything. So but that's another thing. Like i said with the hidden coaches. They everyone just kind of accepted me and just kind of like let me do my thing and just treated me like another player which is just so cool because it could be. It's very easy to like. Treat me like tiptoe around the or treat me a little hesitantly with with words and and know just being treated like another player means lots of name the way that once. I kinda got it all out there. Some players did Get the urge to kind of ask them more about it and asked what i've learned from this whole process and so sharing things like that has been really cool because it just shows that the openness to this is important. Yeah i mean as you know. This is mental health awareness. Month and baseball has been You know really taking strides in that in that area the league level and a lot of the teams Obviously the giants are. It's something that capital brings up a lot. How important it is And and we've seen that inaction by You know they're the fact that like last year you you came and talked to the giants And you've worked with them to to get your story out there. What do you. What kind of strides do feel like. The sport is making in terms of mental health awareness. I know people people opening up more and more all the time Ryan booked her. Who i know from his time with the oakland a.'s. Just spoke to sports illustrated about his struggles with depression. And turning to alcohol. To kind of overcome the stresses anxieties of baseball. Which is something. You know a lot about with You know dealing with the anxiety. The depression that can come with all the pressures to perform in the uncertainties of You know your stat roster status. What where do you kind of feel like things stand. Yeah i think it's i think. Isn't that phase where it's coming to light more often which is always the more uncomfortable phase of any kind of awareness movement and it doesn't have to always be. I think i think one of the things is that maybe even gets confused at times that it always seems like it's so negative when people talk about it but it's kind of like just getting it all out there at first and understanding why things are happening in what's happening and then that's when the justice period what will happen after you all the facts and everything out there and under and understanding of what people are going through and you can start to make the adjustments of making things a little bit easier for all people involved which is the most important thing and it's not like anyone's trying to blame baseball for this or blame whatever situation or setting that they're in they just want see they just want what's best for people and that's where i think i found myself and i think that's where ryan is finding himself. He just wants to make things a little bit easier for the next people or the people that are still going through it right now because unfortunately a lot of players do feel similar feelings and at times just some unneeded pressures from themselves. So i think it's in that phase right now where people are starting to point it out and it's uncomfortable for some sort for some people and uncomfortable in certain situations i would say but i think that's the starting point and i think it's the it's it's going to. It's going make a big big impact on a lot of players in a lot of organizations. Because it's i kind of compare it to. And i no cap compares to this as well as the physical rehabilitation type things in. I'm sure there's probably kind of weird at first having players are people assigned to just work players fitness up. When i kind of started so i think it's a similar thing that's going to be happening soon with specific personnel like our team psychologist psychologists our mental skills team in all that To counter supply the learnings and things that are important to help players balanced their lifestyle with a really stressful job. Yeah i i think you and i talked about this a few months ago. There's so much in all Especially male pro. Sports are so much emphasis. I think sometimes on being tough being strong and not letting on if something's bothering you. Sometimes they even extends about fitness sometimes even players who will are are injured won't say because they're so they're they're worried about looking soft so kappler talks a lot about this to you. Know it's not it's anything but that it's showing strength to go to people and say i need help with this. You know this is something. I'm struggling with exactly like you would with an injury. Do you kind of see. See the that there's that same sorta similarity there right. Yeah exactly shame because you only heard with the physical injury if you're playing her in your playing through something that's hindering your ability to perform at your best. You're not able to perform your highest level so intern. There's a possibility that you might not be able to help the team at at the highest level. They're needing all right juice before we let you go. I just have to ask you really quickly and actual baseball question Since your season is going on going on now how are things looking with sacramento. How do you think the river cats are looking. Who's standing out to you. I mean i. I haven't totally impressive. I'm just saying that sound like a nice teeth. I think we have a lot of talent out here and it's it's not even just the talent. It's the kind of people we have. there's always like that because i've been on a lot of teams now and there's always a vibe one way or the other with the team that's either going to feel is going to help you or it's going to maybe kind of hold you back because there's some things you're not really liking. There's an energy in our clubhouse where everyone kind of is on the same page and people are just good people and I know it's only been a pretty much a week now being around them. But that's that's even more evidence of how Screw that is because it's a stands out that quickly to me and let alone the town that we have We've put some pretty good shows already. we kind of slacked last three games. But that's just the way it goes. Sometimes but i think the overall talent that i've seen has been pretty impressive and i'm really excited to go through a full season with these guys. That's wonderful everyone should get out and see the sacramento river. Cats play and root root root for gerard anderson wonderful story.

The Most Important Shots In The NBA: Vaccines

"There's more than just a basketball game going on here adviser for him. The bucks are giving out free covert. Vaccinations milwaukee is among the nba franchise with the highest number of players and staff vaccinated about seventy percent of mba. Players have gotten at least their first shot and like they're certainly hoping that number goes up before the playoffs the nba playoffs. Start two weeks from saturday but some shots have already determined. What will happen on the court at the center of the sports vaccination effort is one man doctor leroy simpson the head of medical affairs for the nba. The man who's overseeing every aspect of leagues response to covid nineteen so today the doctor in charge of the health of the entire nba shares. Exactly what this pandemic is taught in where we go from. I'm pablo torre. It's thursday may six. This is espn daily doctor. Leroy sims thank you so much for talking today. I appreciate it. It's great to be here with you. This is a truly pleasure. Well listen you are the medical director of the national basketball association. That is a job you've held since two thousand eighteen. That is a job that i did not have that many questions about in like two thousand and nineteen but now i have many questions for you and i just want to start off pretty basically. What is your day to day. Been like because you're trying to keep everybody safe during this pandemic that we're still going through obviously so it will depend on the day as i continue to work in the emergency department so there are days where i'm not wearing my nba hat and actually working in the er. But when i'm not doing. Er shifts a typical day will start off with meetings and briefings as it relates to. What's happening with kobe. Interacting with not only are nba staff and personnel but are affiliated leagues. We have the wnba the g. league touquet and about to launch the basketball africa so the day is filled with meetings on those fronts. Sundays i will do presentations to our various groups weather. It's our staff. Our referees our players about cove it even as so the days do vary in terms of what the workflow looks like a. But it's intense so hold on. You've described a globe that you are sort of monitoring a literal planet of basketball. That falls under your purview. But also that you're an emergency room doctor for those who aren't familiar with how you're balancing this. What is the er section of your life. Still resemble the r. Is my bread and butter. I love working in the er one of the things that i always wanted to do was to be able to help people in any situation and i know that sounds very kotido. You want to help people. But what i mean by. That is if. I'm in a grocery store if on an airplane. If i'm on a bus and something happens i'm able to intervene and help that person at least to be able to stabilize them. And that's what. I was always interested in you. Know dr simms. It reminds me. I grew up the son of doctors. I unfortunately found no medical angle on my current profession. You did the dream that they probably still hold out for me. But i remember like being on a plane and an emergency happening and my dad being the guy and i just remember this. Immense singular pride that i felt and i imagine for you. That sense of pride also probably extends to what we just saw last year with the nba. Bubble like this sports science experiment in america that seemed to be the vanguard of how america was dealing figuring out ways to deal with the corona virus. Just how far in the rear view does that feel to you. Does it feel like it was a million years ago. Does it still feel like you're still kind of in it. It still feels like. I'm in it and primarily because we continue to draw from that experience of being in orlando when we set up a vis the bubble or the nba. Finals are global games. You name it. We start at the thirty thousand foot view. Start with the forest and get down to the trees. What will people need day in day out. How can we do it in the context of making sure people don't have to leave the bubble We were in florida. There were a lot of cases in the community. And so we need to be. We needed to be fairly contained And we had to bring a lot of resources into that bubble onto that campus that we typically would necessarily need to have on the campus like ct scanners and mri machines. So looking back at the bubble what is underrated about that experience. What is sort of being under considered about. I think the the challenge of living away from home that law because we had people who did a hundred plus days in the bubble there was a challenge for our players challenge for our staff toward the end of the bubble. We made arrangements to allow them to have a small number of family to come in and join him. And i recall. I can tell you. It's clear as day how different that campus became. It was tremendous seeing guys out with their kids. You know we had a little putting green. We had horn whole the at the pools. It was just a different feel altogether. You know for me. It was almost eighty days away from home until you've had to do it. You really can't quite appreciate how. How much of a sacrifice that is. You're family to give you up but for you to be away as well and committed to your so when you think of the virus. Now dr simms. How are you able to characterize the impact of infection on athlete health and performance. How do you begin to break that down the viruses shifty. That's how i characterize the virus but we know that some people have no symptoms. No impact in terms of people people's day to day lives in performance. We also know that people can be symptomatic or they can have what's called long-haul or syndrome where they're experiencing chronic fatigue shortness of breath headaches dizziness in confusion. And that definitely can have an impact on players. Jason tatum spoken about that. And so we know that you're not immune even if you're a young healthy athlete from the detrimental impacts of the corona virus. It is for that reason that we continue to strongly encourage not just our players but everyone to be vaccinated to protect you against that. The benefits of the vaccine are tremendous the risk of very small. The risk of covid are significant in. We should be able to protect ourselves from that. Yeah i wanted to talk to you about the vaccine in the way that you just sort of alluded to because when you are dealing with athletes who tend to be young and healthy in general and. I think it's safe to say. Also athletes bay are at the top of their profession. The guys that you're dealing with there can be a sense of confidence. Let's put it and for you. What do you find to be the common questions or concerns when it comes to how athletes may be cautiously considering the vaccine as a concept. We took our vaccine education campaign to team by team. I presented for thirty minutes to each team individually to be able to arm them with helpful information. Give them the data and to stand there to answer any questions. They would half and so their questions reflected questions that you might have or questions. I had before i got the vaccine. They ask questions. Like how do we know this a safe. How do we know that a year from now. I'm not gonna experienced some type of problem related to getting this vaccine. Keep in mind for these athletes. Their body is their paycheck So it's only natural that we anticipate they're gonna ask questions about what could be going into their bodies but they do want to know the. I had a really really great question from a player who will go nameless. But he said doc if we're young and we're healthy and everyone around us is getting vaccinated and we heard immunity. Why don't we just wait for that point. And that's a very thoughtful question because we had talked about what herd immunity means and so that player was gone. Well let me make some calculated risks and so the questions have just been great. They wanted to know if i was coming to them. If i was sent to talk to them because i'm a black doctor and syncing this is this because of the hesitancy that we're seeing in the communities and i told them no. This wasn't me coming to them as a black doctor. This is me coming to them as a doctor. They have seen a doctor who they know. They saw me on zoom before bubble. They saw me in the bubble. They see me at all star. They see me at combine. They see me at summer league. They asked me. Would this impact my fertility. How is this going to impact my performance. I was willing to answer any and all of those questions. And i think it made a difference because the message of being vaccinated is important but the messenger is also important. I think that resonated with our guys. I wanted to dive in domestically a little bit deeper on the black experience as vaccination is concerned and you began to speak to this but certainly there is a history that i think is worth being aware of a fraud. History of interaction between black americans african americans and medicine as this institution. How do you begin to explain the troubled history that i just referred to and also where we are now in why that is not a thing to be concerned about in the context of vaccine. We can't the history. In fact we learn from it and we know that for a very long time in this country. Black americans african americans were seen as people. Upon whom experimentation should take place people for whom treatments should be withheld. And that was the tuskegee experiment. Remember the ski experiment was taking people who had syphilis in simply observing what happened naturally and withholding penicillin we had a cure and that was hailed and so that skepticism of. How do i know that you have my best interest at heart that resonates we saw. That women were being experimented. On in the development of gynecological surgical tools black slave women and then those tools wants perfected were taken to europe and used on women but with anesthesia. They didn't use anesthesia on those slate. Enslaved women and so this. The history is long in terms of our interaction with the healthcare community. But it's also not just a history. It's a now story. Look at black longevity. Look an infant mortality. Look at chronic medical diseases. These are all things that we have in the black community that disproportionately high compared to other communities. So that is what informs people's hesitation not just with the vaccine with healthcare in general people. Say well you know. I'd rather take my chances than go. See someone who's not going to respect me and treat me as a human we have to get into the communities in show that we are trustworthy and that we want to partner with the people in the community. We have their best interests at heart. That's how we start to bridge again. All right after the break more from dr simms on fans at live sports and herd immunity and fighting vaccine. Disinformation goodyear knows when the season starts heating up so to the possibilities play off. Hopefuls are beginning to emerge contenders are solidifying their position from here on out every game as a chance to create momentum to make the right past the right move to hit the perfect shot it takes momentum to build up to the moment but it takes everything to capture it goodyear more driven so looking at vaccinations across the nba. Dr simms the most recent number we've heard is from adam. Silver who said that more than seventy percent of players have received at least one dose. And i know that all types of employers and organizations across america they're all grappling with how to get their vaccination rates up but in the case of the nba. I know it's currently the personal choice of players whether to get it or not so. Tell me more about that. I think it's tough to mandate a vaccine. I think that's a tough position to be in i. I do understand that when you get down to a legal question had some institutions may legally have the right. But i also don't think that we want to be in the position of forcing people to take the vaccine. Why do i say that Let's say we get to a point. That a booster is needed. Are you going to force people to take the booster. You get probably one shot to make people do stuff but if you take that shot and it turns out that needed to do it again and again. Then you're going to have you and you're going to have a problem. And that's why i think. The education comes in allow people to make an informed decision if they understand the vaccines benefit me and no. It's not the government planning chip in my arm. They understand why. That's not the truth in reality. You stand to serve people better if we start from what i heard it on the internet. That's one thing or someone got the shot and they had this reaction arm and they started to act differently. Then we can get into that like what were the adverse events from the shot but but let me understand where you coming from but this is. This is debate right you you you have to start with. The argument is not the person. You can't tell someone like you're crazy like make any sense. You're never going to reach them. You have to listen and that that is more than half of my job is. I have to listen and get information. Synthesize that information and then be able to make an assessment people. Ask me hey. I have a question and i tell them. There is no quick question in medicine. If you if you ask me can. I take acetaminophen. I'm going to go well. What past medical history do you have. What surgical history have you had. Have you been sick recently. What medications are you taking. Do you have any liver problems. Run in your family. I have to ask all these questions. In order to make an assessment. I was thinking about all of this because we dr fauci on the podcast last year and he had referenced. The hope that athletes could be helpful. I saw dr fauci recently talked to marshawn. Lynch was hanan. Marshawn lynch here man. Pleasure to meet the doctor foul cheesy himself. He was having big dog. Thank you it's good to be with you shawn no product. What's your sense of how important publicizing athlete. Nba player vaccination is and could be first informal summit doctor and my priority is the care of the patient so my first objective is to make sure you pablo and anyone else get vaccinated if you have questions about vaccination that we address those. We get rid of disinformation and dispel any myths to help you make an informed decision. So that's my that's my priority number one. Then we can start to think about reaching out to the community and having a bigger impact sort of the next level of the concentric circle we know that our legends. We know that our players we know that there are influencers in society and that has an impact but at the same time. I don't feel there should be an obligation for someone to deliver a message of. Hey do this. It's a personal decision. And the priority is the individual getting vaccinated and if enough of us as individuals get vaccinated. We will be fine. it does feel. dr simms. Like sports can often serve as a weathervane of normality. The idea that when we see fans cleared to reenter the building. In the way that we're used to that will be the sign that okay. We're getting back into direction that we're used to. How close to normal. Do you think we're going to be as the playoffs are sort of on the horizon. The season in the nba. So i feel very good about the path that we're on that trajectory but even though cases are low and we're in that sixty to seventy thousand cases a day that's still pretty high. It's lower than the two hundred and fifty thousand cases a day but it's still high and when we look around the globe look at what's happening in india. We can't forget about that that this this this pandemic goes on look at what's happening in the midwest. Look what's happening in latin america and on the african continent but look we have fans in our buildings and at the beginning of the season we did not so. That's progress and i'm all about the progress. The message of herd immunity dr simms. That feels like a concept that our listeners also could benefit from a little education on how would you describe what that is and how do we reach it. The layman's definition of herd immunity. Is this if ten of us are together in a room. An i have covert i may be able to infect the person to my right but neither one of us can infect anyone else in the room and so in that instance. The room has eighty percent herd immunity. And that that is essentially what we're trying to get to the point where any one individual can infect on average less than one person right now in the united states. i think we're at about twenty. Six percent of individuals fully vaccinated. And so that's a far cry. From maybe the seventy five or eighty percent that will need to reach her immunity really. We're in a race against the virus as long as the virus is in circulation is going to continue to mutate. because that's what viruses do they mutate and if we can get to the point where fewer people are susceptible to infection then. We start to starve out. The virus and the virus doesn't have anywhere anywhere or anyone that it can impact but if we in the united states hit herd immunity eighty percent. But we don't have immunity around the globe with globalization and travel. We're still going to be at risk from the impact of the virus when you think about what you have learned just lesson wise. Is there something that occurs to you now is like oh man this is. This is what. I had to learn how to do this job that i didn't know before thanksgiving the entire pandemic experience. There isn't one thing that i have learned and taken away learned several things i think. What's first and foremost. That depend on is really highlighted for me. Was the importance of human connectedness. And for me being home for this extended amount of time and having this amount of time has been with my wife and my two daughters very important not being able to travel to chicago to see my grandmother over the holidays or to travel to florida to see my parents and having it be so long. Since we've been together. I just so so much value that hugs. I mean not being able to hug people. You know the oc how awkward it gets when you come to people like do you. Four arm or do you. What do you do like to think of what it used to be. When you dab someone close you can't do it anymore. Like gets me the most important question. Perhaps of the day. Which is that. commissioner adam. Silver was famous dr simms. For his mastery of dep- he spoke tdap fluently in a way that distinguished him. What are the policies around depp. Going to be. Do you think as we head forward into this brave new world. I will say that commission. Silver had pretty. Great dab game was legitimately impressive. Yeah you know considering the fact that our hands are one of the primary vehicles by which we can infect ourselves. Your hands are very valuable and keeping you safe so i do hope the data comes back the dapitan the half hug or whatever and call. I'm looking forward to that. But i don't see that on the horizon anytime soon. Aw really appreciated how. Public health sentiment changed. Its nomenclature to go from socially distant to physically distant because we need to socialize with each other. We don't need to socially distant. It was more of a physical thing and it speaks to that importance. What messaging really can mean. dr simms. Thank you so much for your time for your explanations for your wisdoms. I really appreciate. It is my pleasure. I'm glad to have come on. And you as filipino as a harvard grad that very much resonates with my wife. Who's filipino harvard grad. So i one major points with this one. Well you know what i'm gonna make sure my parents hear that part so they can stop telling me that i need to go to medical school. It's not too late though. That's the issue they always say it's not too late Update here since he recorded our interview with dr simms last week the share of fully americans has risen from twenty six percent to thirty two percent. And you will hear more from doctor. Leroy sims and me next month on the national geographic podcast overheard. It's going to be a story on olympic trainer during okay up next jeff. Passan provides an update on what he calls the most important story he will ever report with. No fees or minimums on checking and savings accounts banking with capital. One is like the easiest decision in the history of decisions kind of like choosing the listen to another episode of your favorite podcasts and with our top rated app you can deposit checks and transfer money anytime anywhere making capital one and even easier decision. That is banking reimagined. What's in your wallet. Terms apply capital one. Na member fdic. here's another story. I want you to know a few months ago. We told you the story of drew robinson. The former texas rangers player who bounced around between the pros and the miners for years all while living with mental illness. About a year ago drew robinson attempted suicide and lift supposed to help people supposed to help people get through something. That doesn't seem winnable. Meant to be alive. Meant to be alive and now there is breaking news about exactly what drew robinson is meant to do. So i asked jeff passan who reported his story to tell us more. So jeff we talked with you about robinson on this podcast about is returned to baseball a few months ago but now there is an update that i need you to explain to us. What is happening withdrew. I'll just read. The lead of my new story. Here drew robinson who lost his right eye in a suicide attempt last year made the opening day roster for the san francisco giants triple a affiliate and could play as soon as thursday when the sacramento river. Cats opened their season with a six game series in his hometown of las vegas. Take that in. Just think about all of the different elements there pablo that we're dealing with drew robinson who lost his right eye in a suicide attempt last year. This is somebody who for a long time was not sure he would ever play baseball again. Who for a day. When he was clinging to life was not sure if he wanted to live and here he is not just alive but back playing baseball for the san francisco. Giants one step away from the best team in the national league thus far this season. It's an incredible story. It's always been an incredible story and it just keeps getting better. I want to hold on here for a second. Because the idea of a baseball player with one eye existing flourishing. That's not something. I knew could even really happen. Yeah and and. I went to watch his first spring training game. I i was in the phoenix area and We went out to dinner that night and it was really interesting to see where he was mentally. I think a lot of what he's learned in the past year prepared him for this moment. But what did concern me was the reality that for the first time in the last year. Pablo he was going outside of this comfort zone and here this was the real world. This was more than a hundred other professional baseball players. They're trying to show that they're better than him. This was opponents trying to avoid having to say a guy with what i hit a home. Run off me. And this was a no-holds-barred situation where they were not going to give him preferential treatment simply because he was a good story he had to earn his way and the fact that he overcame some really trying moments early on and convinced giants management that he was the right guy for this roster spot. I think is a testament to him in illustrates the growth that he has had. How has drew playing early on. It was interesting because early on the giants believed that his best chance at making a roster was going to be as utility player and that in order to be an effective utility player in the minor leagues. You have to play shortstop and drew hadn't played shortstop in a long time regularly and He was having trouble there but during batting practice he would hit the ball hard enough where he knew that it was their enduring games. Interestingly enough you know what's the what's the term pablo for somebody who takes a lot of walks in baseball. He's got a good i Drew robinson was taking a lot of walks and he was able to look in the mirror and say to himself. I've got a good. I and that part is what really i think is much as anything gave him the hope in the belief that he was going to be okay the fact that he can discern the difference between and strike with only one. I and i think the day. He hit his first home run. It was beautiful. It was a it was a beautiful majestic swing and the ball absolutely flew That told him. Hey i can do this. But he understands. The first thing that he asked to do is play his way into regular playing time and to show that he can be productive enough in. That is far from a guarantee at this point so jeff. This was the story that you called the most important story. You will ever work on. So what should we know at the very end here. This isn't the very end pablo. This is just the beginning. This is like the second inning of drew robinson's baseball game. And i'm not sure if he's going to spend the next ten years on the field doing things and defying expectations like he did. When for twenty hours he fought to stay alive and wound up doing so what. I am pretty sure about though. Is that whatever drew robinson does is going to be important and it's going to be interesting and he's going to to really appreciate everything that he has because he earned it and he got there by doing things the way that he was meant to do them. Jeff passan thank you as always for being today with us. Thanks pablo you can catch a replay of our podcast episode called alive the drew robinson story. We'll have it in the espn daily podcast. Feed right here on saturday. Ipod blow torah and this has been espn daily. I'll talk to you tomorrow

Abrupt Departure for Magic

"The day step down. No, no. I want what the hell is going on. I have no idea. I'm not going to be big. The silent survivors matter and they're worth fighting for want the system surrounding Michigan State University to change. And I want other survivors that they matter. Choosing you why are people so bothered by this? It's over it's done. Joe val? Ski score a goal with his face door. Ran out to get the bat. The picked it up. Saw the dog was right there that should never unpire another game. Again, fin the good voice as we let him stay within. What a week. It was surprised departures dogs getting bad stolen game of thrones days away. Hess head's going to explode in the Friday for now sidelines. Ryan Smith lot to cover today. The NBA playoffs tipping off this weekend and new national champion crowned earlier this week. Congratulations virginia. But all of that was lost in the biggest story of the week. Magic Johnson for his latest trick making every other headline in sports this week disappear with one impromptu press conference. Deliver step down myself. Step down the president. I have never seen a reaction around the league that I saw last night two weeks. He gave zero weeks notice what the hell is going on. I have no idea. I cannot believe that Magic Johnson quit of over. No magic to walk away from something. I found out the same time. You guys did I want to do the things I used to do. He's having a lot of fun being Magic Johnson. It was a lot of anger. It was shocked. You just shot. Everyone. Did you save faces when you stood up there? Joy of being able to tweet again how? Yeah. But you know, I think the big thing was it wasn't that? He did it. And that surprise a lot of people. But it was how he did it that made so many people it was unbelievable. And then just to see him laughing gig all about what got me was when he said, I couldn't walk into Ginny buses office and tell her because we both be crying, and I wouldn't be able to walk away. Listen, we've all been there. Right. We've had to resign from from jobs. We've had and it wasn't easy, especially if you love your your boss, but you're a grown. This is an organization that you play for you coached at one point you you don't have the the chutzpah and use the word, but spoke as a family show to walk in Jeanie Buss right before you tell the media and shocked the world is an off the cuff unprepared press conference that he held similarly to how he ran the Lakers. And there wasn't a a lot of preparation. There's no heads up, and we saw genie buses reaction to the she was respectful. She tweeted out this love. But she said that a mo- g hearts two of them in a row. And my thought was where's the genie bus? We saw that fired. Her brother. That's the genie bus that needs to run the Lakers organization, not a MU g heart. Jeremy you use emojis a lot all you need to. Look, I mean, you know. This is a train wreck out the first person to say that this has been a train wreck. This has been an unmitigated unprecedented. Kind of disaster for this franchise. What has been going on in Magic Johnson who is still associated with winning who won five titles, obviously as a player when entitled as a player in college as well. He didn't want any part of it anymore. He wanted to go back east put his own words. I mean that was the thing that was most refreshing about all this. He said, look, I want my life back. I want my fun back. I don't need this. And he doesn't need it. Why should he want to be a part of it? And be interesting thing here to of course, is LeBron situation and that interaction, and what this means going forward for the franchise, and what it means about their relationship, and nobody saw this coming seven months ago, obviously. But it is fascinat-. We don't have that he wanted to move on from Luke Walton bus deny. And they're gonna have difference of opinions. We know house can't stand if they're gonna have different thoughts on it. It and that organisms was going to go in two different directions. But in wasn't expecting Lincoln here. One thing that it did shine light on though is just goes to show that being the president of any organization takes a lot of work the traveling the scouting. And he wasn't doing what struck me. Yes, exactly. That was the problem women's struck me about this, though is this to me was LA, passive aggression at its best. She's a sister. I love her like a sister. But I'm not going to tell her directly. I'm gonna tell the media, but I'm doing that. Because I feel so strongly about her. What is that? I feel breaking feeling bad. Exactly what it was nobody. You know, what I really think in this? I think the LA Lakers going the way of the New York next member about ten twenty years ago that let me say this ten twenty years ago. Everybody said everybody wants to play a New York. The theme was everybody wants to play in LA with this level of dysfunction. You have to wonder if LA is enough. Just a star. We know money wants to work. In an environment. That's dysfunctional. We've heard how toxic it was. So I understand him resigning. Okay. It's just the way that he did it. And I think the way that he did it it even puts more emphasis on how dysfunctional organization is what LeBron James or not. It's still going to be hard to get enough to go play that makes nothing easier for anyone in the organization but him except he's not in the organization anymore. All right. Let's talk about the revelation of the week now even with the NBA Anthony Davis wore this sir to the pelicans final game channeling his inner Bugs Bunny with that little double entendre there. That's all folks, we thought it was double entendre of the year. But hey, this is explanation of his wardrobe choice that stood up. I actually didn't choose it. It was it was hanging for me already. Renite big shot lays out I'm gonna wear in a game. I have no trouble in that. Bigshot dressing talking about. Freen Rex what's happened there, of course this year. And then like I have no control over I might buy with somebody else year and he wears round on the day. Yeah. By the way, even if somebody else's choosing it he could have read in to himself. Maybe this isn't the right message sending I gotta tell you guys every week. I I have my own clothes, Bob Lee, lays them out. And because he's Bob, I just accept whatever. He does the last time I can see looking at somebody out my clothes. Same elementary school. Was my mom. I after this came out I text in communicated with a few NBA players. This is the thing. Not only do they have stylists, but the stylists not only by choose their clothes. But they tell them win to wear them. I get all that. Here's what. I know. But here's the thing. You weren't on it all of this. All of this own it. He wants to have it both ways send the message owning. Yup. And clearly he did what coming up and about hopefuls deleting tweets now, you know, the draft around the corner and by the way, the pitfalls of scoring goals with your mouth how under reported stories and a lot more coming up. Yeah. So wanna go with your mouth showing? Your home is important. That's why gyco helps make it easy to save on homeowner's insurance because home is more than just a place home is where you have a cute little reading for those rainy days when you want to curl up with a good book, but you don't even read.

The Geico insurance agency could help protect the dark mean filled corner, you call home, call Geico and see how easy it is to switch and save on homeowner's insurance. Outside. The lines is brought to you by lug Kinga value window tonight. Kita tomorrow, you try. All right. Let's under reported stories starting this story that we've covered for a while here at OT L last year, a Michigan state student filed a suit against the school claiming that three now former basketball players raped her in two thousand fifteen and alleging that when she reported the incident days later to the counseling center, she was dissuaded from going with authorities told at one point, according to the lawsuit if you pursue this going to be swimming with some really big fish this week Bailey quality revealed her identity for the first time, she was emotional as she explained why she was coming forward publicly. Decidant survivors matter and they're worth fighting for they hide in plain sight in all of all of us. And Lastly, I want the system surrounding Michigan State University to change. And I want all people to be treated with the dignity and respect regardless of their status or the revenue. They bring to the university. And I want other survivors to know that they matter. I have to applaud this young woman because people don't realize how difficult it is for someone to come forward. Like that. She now has to see now puts herself out there in a way to try to help other survivors come forward. And now she will have to face all these questions and attacks unfairly so because of what happened to her. But the fact that she's willing to do that really highlights the story brings it to the forefront and brings her case to the forefront. But but more than anything, it's about helping other survivors come forward. I really applaud her for what she did that a few years ago. There was an excellent documentary that came out called the hunting ground, and it was all about this and what an epidemic this is at a number of universities. And the one thing I walked away from is that these universities are policing themselves. For example, Notre Dame has their Notre Dame police department and when a young woman makes an accusation of rape. They're the ones who investigate I really do believe in order for the NCW to get a really good grip on this is to create an entity. That if women feel that they've been sexually assaulted they can call that outside entity to come into the universities in do their own investigation because we've been covering sports for very long time. A university is not going to be as thorough if they're investigating. They're starting quarterback there starting point guard who's gonna come in help them win a national championship and make them a lot of money. It's just not going to happen. And so I feel the NCW wants to get ahead of this. Incorrect this that's what they need to change about the situation. Okay. Another under reported story this week couple big time. Baseball players still unsigned. It is kind of amazing that at this point. And it's no longer the off season. It's no longer spring training. We're here in the season in Dallas haiku and Craig kimbrel or still out there. It's not as if teams don't need them. Now, what happened with Harper and trout the enormous amounts of money. They got near the end of the spring training. That quite a lot of the talk about collusion. What's going on with the owners cetera? But the fact that this is still going on these guys can't get signed, regardless of what exactly they're demands. Are. There seems to be some variability what they can be signed for him. It doesn't speak. Well, this situation baseball, Jerry. You know, it's interesting to Scott Boris is obviously Bryce Harper's agent. He's also Dallas titles and talking to some people in the baseball world. There is been some points. Brought up that perhaps Scott Boris was paying very close attention to this Bryce Harper situation his deal and didn't pay enough attention to his other clients like a player like guess, I young. Morris got worse has been the most effective agent in baseball for a long time. You can make that case. I find it hard to believe that he that. He didn't have his I think Dallas getting picked up anywhere. I think we'll probably was like we won't be with the Yanks. But we'll see if that want to make sure we get to one more thing I'm sorry to jump in. But there is one other under reported story that we want to get to and it's Nick Bosa because this guy is poised to become one of the draft picks. But he's been the leading some things recently right bad things like. Wow. Saying Colin Kaepernick is a clown beyond say's music is trash the Black Panther movies. The worst marvel movie Dwayne Wade looks like a parrot fish. He supports Trump anti Hillary. If you combine all these together one can assume that they're racist tweets, but more. So I think the bigger story here is that he came out. And he said he deleted them because he might be drafted by the San Francisco forty Niners and San Francisco more liberal city. So my questions him is. Okay. Well, what if Tennessee or Houston or Jacksonville was drafting second? Why does it the city matter? These tweets aren't great for your image. These big stories just like don't tweet. I mean, don't tweet stupid stuff. But especially just tweet if you're going to be a public figure, and yet people continue to unbelievable, okay? Let's go to the goal of the week. Gotta show you this. It's also known as the sacrifice of the year dope. Evolve. Key, San Jose Sharks. We're taking on the Vegas Golden Knights opened the scoring with this keep watching your camera a goal off his mouth during a TV look at during TV timeouts. I went to look for his teeth. They found him in the up ice asked. If this was the most painful goalie ever scored he said, I didn't feel good. And then later he says I feel right enough with the dental questions gotta give this guy credit. No one is tougher than I'm talking. I'm curious. They found the teeth can can you get some dental now that about. That problem. They were looking just have sort of a dentures that they just put like OB has never thought we'd be talking about dentures today. But here we are by the way coming up win and make changes that's the Sacramento Kings for you and dogs running. Getting bad stolen, billions of euros going to the dogs next. What do you do you loss to fuss more? But okay. You don't have to fly. So you're Anna needs to floss. Sports tonight after the master's with Steve Levy, Kevin Connors have all the highlights from reactions from the second round, including a breakdown of tiger scorecard. Plus inside the Mariners thirteen and to start still can't believe it and take. Oh, Cruella updates. Also sportscenter eleven PM eastern on ESPN. Yeah. Man, all about Fagor. Also all about villains talk some billon including one out of Sacramento. Let's start with the NBA here out of Sacramento. So a lot of devotes signs a four year contract extensions and immediately starts making decisions and fires his head coach after one of the most successful seasons in early in the show. I used the freeze a house divided. Can't stand will bring it back. There you go because there's this phone show against it. So not specific you know, what I like to win. More memorable but there is dysfunction here. And this is what happens look the GM needs to be on the same page as the head coach. And this was obviously this was obviously because he didn't have the same ingredient of the same thought of the same philosophies as his head coach. But again, here's another situation where they're successful. Yet. You think there needs to be changed? How does that work? It means that the owners trusting the owner is saying I'm all in with despite the twelve win improvement. But that's the big dealer. That's a tough one. Especially when the coach is well known and gets a lot of credit for the wins this year. All right onto Jeremy my villain is tiger Rome Virginia guard they won the championship Monday night. And they defied a lot of what the pundits had to say about them that they couldn't play offense cetera et cetera. What happened last year in the first round gets you MBC? He's my hero because because he had the gall to call out. Get your hero your villain. I thought. He's my villain say here on villain. Just because Mike francesa gets on the radio. And he might be wrong about something. Which was Virginia. Doesn't mean that it's nice to call him out. You know, Hugh have to flat. If you have to sit out singing's, oh, I'm all day long. You're going to be wrong sometimes, and I just think it's unsporting. Do you know? Call people out are no. But he's trying to make that no-one criticize you looking to see my point is the sports pope occupies certain in the, but he wasn't aware that you being a loss to a sixteen the year. Beefy forgot that was in retirement. How did he remember that? Hopefully, he's came out of time. I'm just saying he deserves a little respect. He's even talked to the first time it had been. Well, I'm in. One day. We can all be untouchable like that. How about that? All right. Can't speak your mind. Yup. How about that? While I don't know. That was directed at you, Jeremy because I'm wrong. Okay. Let's talk about I I have a villain here. And it look we make unpire referees villains all the time. But I just wanted to to watch this video. And know why this man is my villain. Oakland a's. Aaa club Las Vegas aviators were taking on the giant Sacramento. River cats. They have thin the bat dog you see that right there bins. Only job is to collect the bat. It's wants to do does it better than anybody else and picked it up and threw it look at Finn. It looked like the John put why? But then like the true pro he is he picks up the bat. And are you sure look at what Ben tweeted CO tonight? I'm cool. Sometimes they make that call that's class t should be capital. You know what he's a dog? He's entitled to make a wording mistake in the bat. Doug, get the case. It's like get this move dogs taking too long. Okay. I only I think even being put somebody out of the job a little boy who could have put it some internship hours into that. Now. Now our? Human. What we don't have any more dogs in the show. You know, what there are? By the way, it's time for Diana's hero. Diana. Mike hero is giving foster. So we we've been seeing on social media. Former Steeler players calling out. Ben Rothlisberger calling Antonio Brown directly calling juju Smith Schuster. And I think Ridgely went been rothlisburger was getting called out a little bit of support out there from other former Steeler players, maybe perhaps a little bit of gossip about some of the things into Brown was saying is true. But as soon as you go after juju Smith Schuster, a wide receiver who we can argue he made a vad drop against the New Orleans Saints, and it costs them the game with he was crushed from that drop. I interviewed him in the locker room for the game. He was in tears. Crying is is out for into Neo Brenton magnified that moment saying. One of the most important drops in the season of for the Steelers in cost in that game. I won't criticize an athlete for calling out another run that Reuben foster saying enough of this. Let's talk you don't want because Tonio Brown. I think is losing his mind when he thinks it's happening. This is not just for him. Yeah. And it's been a good. The overall thing is why not just move on your whose opinion. No. But he wanted out he's in Oakland. And you've got the payday and yet he's still talking about guys that supported it or next talking about foster being your hero. Here's my thing where where's Jon Gruden in Mike Tomlin and all this. Why are you know, where are they say? Yeah. Do anything about that? I mean, look at these players at this point right now, they're Twitter. There is become their own voice and their voices controlled by the organization. I mean, Mike Tomlin's good. Good to tell his players to stop tweeting that most of most of them. If I if I was the head coach would this is a bad. Look, there's this. Tell you what it's difficult situation. But I wanna get to some other things to get to my own hero that seem selfish, but I will and that hero Larry Bird. You know, because Katie loose Sanyal and loves them. She was just ratchet forth by the Chicago sky. And when she was drafted they played this video for. Congratulations on your mazing, high school and college careers, your talent termination will bid great asset to the WNBA. And I wish you continued success. Thank you for the honor of wearing number thirty three. I can't wait to see what you will -ccomplish at the next level. And that cute she wears his number two honor. What's that in magic? Right. Yes. Yes. Yes. She's always idolized him. He's been her everything is a basketball player and afterwards. She was just beyond belief just beyond if I had received video that from like Johnny United because she said she she never she never grew up watching him. I never grew up watching Johnny United's. But if I received a video like that from two I'd probably be in tears feeling. Are you from Baltimore? No, I'm from Miami. But I worked in Baltimore for four years. All right. So can we get one more hero? The two of you will hear it. No, no dog. How about the well the marathon day Saab lose this remarkable endurance ruling race across the southern Saharan Morocco hundred thirty miles over the course of six days of most humans cannot withstand it and tell us a little bit about cactus so eight hundred humans participated in this race twenty two three to twenty four miles a day six days they raised and this dog came in seventy six out of all the eight hundred humans. He came in seventy six and their as fired inspired a lot. I'm going to share this, quote, I hung out with Keith Olbermann at the seaport the other day him. And I were talking about dogs. I have five heat has to he said this dogs were put on this planet to take care of us not the other way around and it's so true. And I might get a little motion here. But I think this dog was very inspirational for the other eight hundred human next year. You are. I'm doing the. This video with hacked is by the way, before we go say congratulations to one of our own. Julia theme and moving on we're gonna miss her. We love her. She's an incredible member of our cleaner. And I have to say that. But I'm happy for her. Never trader love.

Battling It Out

"Robbed the puck dropped. The gloves raiders capitals last night. This is it around award at the gate fight in. Nhl history time boy. Three six the previous record holder was ranger devils forty twelve close with his paddle. Let's go atkins lookout scared. You should be a very of pattern. Let's look at the play by play your first right you know. War and peace. This is war and war and forty one poodle penalty minutes penalty bogged at code red. Social distancing situation was that took over the game and after the wilson no suspension and the rangers statement and the cats reits. How could it not. But there was also good in this game teaching patrick after the passing this father which was awesome. Emily kaplan is being senior hockey reporter analyst and twenty nine thousand nine hobey baker award finalist. I'm thrilled to have you here. You reported today. The rangers five two hundred and fifty thousand dollars for their statement. It would appear the initial feels like this being resolved on. The ice was the best thing for the game. Should they feel that way. Emily i view this as a mess. Hockey has more unwritten rules than any other sport and that can make it inaccessible to fans. And i think what we saw there is a manifestation of it the caps sheepish that this got overblown. The rangers will. They've had a hell of a week because all of a sudden they're owner. James dolan decide to treat them with the attention. They treats the knicks but the nhl by decision to Not suspend tom wilson because they saw that incident on monday and said in a rule book. There's nothing suspended their now. They didn't have to do that. They went by the robot. But there's room not too and they could have avoided this entire mass. Talk to be more about that. You've talked to the league and there's the rule book and then there's the unwritten rules and you feel in the best interest of the game. Should there have been a suspension for wilson. So we didn't have last night or was last night a fine outcome because the play and the game resolved itself on the ice. I do think they should have suspended tom. Wilson and. I just want to say this. I'm thrilled that. This is a one on the show. I've been dying to talk hockey on a one. I've had more appearances on. Espn in the last two days. I had my first two years in the company combined. But i don't think that's good for the sport because i don't want to be talking about this. I want to be talking to. You is about connor mcdavid or austin country. You i hear and some could argue okay. Well we're talking about on the network. But i would argue we're not highlighting the best parts of the game point blank. Was this a good night or bad night for hockey emily at page. Turn to you now. The could have prevented this. And i'm talking about the league office into commissioner gary bettman by just suspending him for one game. You know what's coming up there. Replaying the initial game. And why would you do this. So you end up with more penalty minutes in the first five minutes. Then you've had in the last forty years in this league and it could have been prevented by just a one game suspension and emily's telling us where there's nothing in the rulebook according to the nhl to cause a penalty because caused suspension. Their common sense bringing its tail. You do not let him play again. I mean i've seen it before between the detroit red wings into colorado avalanche when hate each other and had a great robbery and they would come out and do the same kind of action. The nhl doesn't learn but unwritten rules more so than this program. I think that makes all right woody. I hear what you're saying. But let's talk about the conundrum ramona shelburne. We'll bring you in here. We're talking about it. It's the biggest news in the sports world for the most part. Was it a good night or bed night for the shell ramona. I'm going to say it's a good night. I don't like what they did here but we are talking about it and and let's name names because the rangers named names in their statement george perez. The guy who's making this decision right. He's the he's the head of the commission that does this. he wasn't enforcer. He has one thousand one hundred one thousand ninety two penalty minutes in his career against eighteen goals. That's what he did so to name another name sir. Lancaster i choose. Violence chose this is what he set up. This is what they wanted. I mean i. I wanted to sing on sports last night. And i go man they they literally drop the puck. Everybody takes off their gloves and they and thought it was. It was predictable. You knew it was coming. It was a mess with the ranger citizens. And do it. We're going to do it. And and your job is to judge whether that's right or wrong. I guess and israel bring you in here now but just the sheer fact. It played out on the ice and we all move. Does that not make it a good day for the nhl real well. If that's what you want to promote for it. Because i mean with woody here was in simple. Simple answer here. You've got a multiple time offender in wilson and if you've got another team in the rangers with really nothing to play for this sort of reputation as being soft and they put out this statement. You know they're going to come over the top with their reaction and if that's what you want for the game sure i guess it's good but let's be honest here if maybe a washington wizards hits a half court shot last night. Or there's some aaron rodgers news. This isn't the first thing we're talking about. We're shoving it somewhere else in the show because frankly two teams be met. Each other and fighting happens all the time in hockey. So i don't think it's a great look and i do think it overlooked the hat trick from from there so overall no. It's more negative attention on the sport. Positive it's just a little bit deeper here on this. The conundrum emily kaplan you heard the capitals two nights ago talking about well there was a sidney crosby play and it was a similar type play and nobody was talking about that place so tom. Wilson was being picked out here because of his previous history. How do you respond to that. Well if you listen to the department of player safety they would say well. We don't look at the prior history before we decide if it's a spendable player. not so. Tom wilson's rap. Sheet was never considered. I don't know if that's the right approach. And that might be where i look for reform but lars eller from the capitals. I think he summed up best yesterday. People just don't think clearly when it comes to tom wilson lasting on the new york rangers cleaning house firing their president firing their gm. After a year the has had so many odd bizarro stories happening to them. What was the position. The rangers are in. today. Oh me more hockey. I'll they're into position where they engineered to rebuild. They've got a lot of young players that are starting to come up. I do feel for don davidson and jeff gordon. Because they did exactly what was asked. They develop these guys but chris. Juries hear the best things about him works hard. He'll do a good job with this. Where's the firing about the statement. Though specifically it was not if you listened to the ranger is that it sounds came exactly from james dole dolphins. He's treating them like the knicks. All right we'll move on news of the day in baseball now. Angels releasing over pool. Bob nightingale reporting pool wanted to be released. His playing time greatly reduced. Another report was he was upset. He was not playing yesterday. Versus ryan yarbrough a pitcher. He's wrecked in the past for the season. One ninety eight hitting six forty two for the career. Six hundred sixty seven home runs and this was the last year for the last year of that ten year. Two hundred and forty million dollars deal luna you remember what you wrote signing forever changes as well. How did this all go wrong. And what do you make the outright release remote man. I remember writing that. I remember being in the parking lot at angel stadium when they had a crowd out. There cheering the signing. This was changed in the end. They finally signed a big free agent away from the yankees and the red sox got the man. I got booed. Tony tony. The angel fans booed me. 'cause i pointed out i thought when they sign holes. He was the best hitter of his generation. If there was ever a guy you wanted to sink two hundred fifty million dollars into and you felt good that you can get at least five or six good years out of it. It was pool halls. So talk to about how this relationship just fizzled away here. Because he announced was going to be his last season two months ago. And you would think maybe there would be some celebration but clearly not now look he never really connected here in in anaheim and i think that it was really sad because i think they sunk all that money into him thinking he was going to be the older brother to mike trout. Like they were gonna have this hall of famer on his way and it. Well he'll still be the fame but trump was supposed they were supposed to be book ends. They were supposed to be the the older brother in the little brother and this is supposed to work for decade instead. All the money they're paying pu holes is the money they didn't spend on pitching and they didn't spend getting some depth around him to help trout be in the playoffs. I mean it just totally backfired on them and then you could say that. They learned from their mistake but they did the same thing with anthony ren and couple years ago and he's on the deal now not not doing anything. What are you page. Is cautionary tale about those. Big money deals for thirty players. Is this disrespect for a first ballot hall of famer. What just happened with the angels releasing pools today. I will start with disrespect. Think he's in my career. He was one of classiest athletes have ever met and i don't think he'd find anybody would say anything negative about polls but here's a situation. They could have been classy enough in their own way to let him play one more game against a fifth starter and let him get a chance to go four for four and finished his career over three hundred. Zero at three hundred reminds me a mickey mantle at the end of his career. Had a terrible year ended up to ninety nine. Really give him a shot. He's got everything else going for him. He'll be first ballot hall of famer. Yes it didn't work out. That is a cautionary tale. You're absolutely right that if you're going to sign these guys like to teach junior to those long term cobbling you. You have to be aware of that. At the end of the career he could hold it. said sees it as early twenties. Miguel cabrera might be analogous right here. And he's having the one in the raiders slumps or worse lumps of his career right. Now we'll bring in. Emily kaplan on just how it went so fast for pools in the angels of the entire ten years. And also this week. Yeah none of those. Ten years of the reign angela nearly ten years. We're good. I mean for his entire eleven year career in saint louis. He was a three hundred hitter. He never hit three hundred in his time with the angels. And i wonder you guys made it this far in his contract. Why couldn't you just give them at last year. But you said we heard this report that maybe this was meddling from the front office and that's just exactly what baseball fans don't want more meddling from the front office into baseball. Decisions were gutierrez. Well i mean with all due. Respect to ramona's story. I do remember people talking at the time about how this was a really long contract. And there's no way he's going to see the end of it at least not in a positive way right and so when he got to the final year and announced he was going to retire. You think okay this might end up. Okay obviously he wasn't nearly as good and pretty clear at this point. He's going be a cardinal in the hall of fame and not an angel of bust. But i do think it's sort of turned a little bit here with this final year. Cutting and where you think. Okay he's just going to end it with the with this team and it's a little bit of disrespect there. There's a little bit of animosity just enough to sort of make it end in a way. You didn't want to see a little bit because we all anticipated ending this. Vn's guilford watch. What tony laruso whereabouts. Route d. h. Spot i know i know there might be some disrespect. I don't think they they paid him. Like two hundred it's We want great players of any generation this generation remember that home run against bradley jr. i mean how do travelling going taking a break right here viruses on the other side anymore hockey stories.

That was in the could've been no hits no walks no errors. John means was perfect. Except for the strike out where the ball away. from catcher patriots. Have a reno ruled a wild pitch runner medicine. I was thrown out trying to steal seconds later. John means the first player in baseball history. Have a no hitter with no walk by bitch no era but no perfect game. Twenty seven twenty seven still not a perfect game like the bumgarner seventy no no. Last week i asked again. Woody does baseball. Have this world here. Should this be a perfect game. Absolutely should be appropriate. Some of these rules like this one have been around as long as i've been around. Toni go back seven decades and they don't ever look into robo go. Let's get rid of this and infield fly rule. Why don't we changing the gate. Concentrate more on trying to get people. Hits rather than concentrating on plates over at strikeout. That's okay so perfect. Aim is your ruling last night. The catholic no by nature a wild pitch is a mistake by the pitcher. Threw it into the dirt. The catcher couldn't catch it and then we want to see a perfect game but it wasn't the other two no hitters this year. They would have been perfect games. That those guys didn't hit guys pitch but they did last night. Perfect game you well. i'm actually. i'm actually surprised. If would he didn't really go back. And tell us the history of this rule because it actually comes from seventeen ninety six for a different game sound a lot like baseball where there was no catcher there because they didn't want strikeouts because they thought strikeouts we're boring and so on the third one the whole point was to get the ball in play so if you couldn't the pitcher can go get the ball and throw the guy that's what their rules for. For whatever reason they have not changed. They've kept the spirit of that ridiculous rule in this game forever. it makes no sense. That was a history lesson. Seven hundred ninety six. Excuse me for thinking. Baseball was in the eighteen hundreds. So what's this game in seventeen ninety. That's very at the name of. It is very confusing and very long. Baseball took a lot of. Its cues from it ramona shelburne. Mlb dot com just dot com. I'm looking right now. Go ahead ramona. I've never really understood this rule and came up a lot in softball to so i actually think this world could be changed but now it's a perfect game by the rules. Not a perfect game. It is a great story though jon means. He was a substitute teacher for four months. Just a couple of years ago almost had of baseball he was. He was double aa for three years. He was not a highly touted prospect. But i guess doing that against the mariners. It's not saying ou is the ace and when you throw the best game ever pitched by oriole ed that's a pretty good franchise history for pitchers three no hitters this year. And if you can't bumgarner which. I do four which means the pace would be twenty two for season the record for no hitters years eight more stats for you hitters hitting two thirty four this year. Which would be the lowest ever had strikeouts once again a record setting pace. The fourteenth consecutive year for that momo are the no nos eight sure thing inevitable byproduct of all that. Yeah it's it's inevitable byproduct of this era where everybody tried to hit a home. Run every time if you swing heart from your deal with the launch angle and you're going to strike out much more than you're gonna run so i think this is just a product of the year for baseball. I think is good. Feels like a triple double and basketball. I like when rastas if you want to change the ball and make debtor. You're gonna end up having no notes. Become yes yes all season long. And that's exactly what's happened. Tried to increase for the job. Woody catholic value. Yes yes or no. No and strikeouts are homerun. People want to see action. They wanna games and play the balls in play. So i think that You know. I think even for the pitchers who probably having these no hitters would probably like if there was more often so it would seem a little bit more special it probably takes away a little bit from them as well so i don't think it's one more thing from baseball. Tony larussa not knowing the extra inning based runner asterisk rule. I'm gonna ask you guys to do actually to be honest with me but the white hawk white sox closer liam hendriks start the inning second because they double switched earlier. They didn't know the rule that they could actually put. A base runner was a position player. Out there and i didn't know now i know hendrix lack of based running Played out in the evening and the white sox loss in extras israel. Is this all on the rooster. Does he deserve the heat that he does. Because by the way and they'll be com also. Has this information has all the rules and well it is. It's funny situation to just be caught up in the air during a press conference He said what was true. And it's a bad look. Maybe it was as bench. Coach should have been able to get that across him. You know you're coming in with the reputation of not being in with today's game and you don't know this new rule. Emily kaplan i look if you're gonna hire guy after. Dui you have to sell your fan base and this is an incredible guy. He's worth bringing in by my count. This third gap of the season. So i'm not sure incredible. Page three mistakes by manager all season. I see managers every night when i'm watching. Tv and the games make mistakes and five innings. Gimme a break. The guy came back one of the. He's in the hall of fame. That's miguel cairo. Pinch coach said hey. Coach manager okay. And how about you ramona route. You see three mistakes because you're watching the iraqis every day. It's a job to know that he's the bench. Coach was a new rule anyway. I didn't know that so. I actually like that owned it. Because i think his team used to hear that when you make mistakes along schober capital b. r. showdown page. Cudi ever is good scoring. Today you're going to like that on your season scoring average but not enough to advance momo k next. Hey there julie foudy from the podcast laughter permitted. We've teamed up with ally from day.

It's because of that I'm also the host of the town hall becomes personally podcast where we share sustainability stories from the industry's influencers and the biggest brands jam packed with tips tricks and needed no info for those that want to do better for the planet, but may not know where to start. We are covering it all last year. We spoke to some incredible people who are doing some incredible things for a planet, the Executive Director of the Leonardo Dicaprio Foundation the CEO seven generation cleaning products and one of the brains behind environmental.

Were GonNA shift gears a little bit today and talk about a topic and I think we've only covered maybe once before on the town hall. I think it was June of twenty eighteen in. That's sustainability in the world of sports. I will say the last guy that came on here to talk about. Green sports was incredible, and you have some big shoes to fill, but it was my dad closure, so I'm biased, but I can promise. This episode will be very inspiring, a wonderful way to feel a little bit of passion while we're all in this big sports free drought during cove nineteen, so welcome I guess Shinkyo. Thank you. Thank you happy to appreciate it. Okay, let's start off pretty easy in another again you know full disclosure I do Kinda feel like I knew you a little bit. Even before we met because I did. Watch you on the real housewives of Orange County, but for those listening who may not be familiar with a very unique career trajectory. Walk us through kind of your personal and professional time. Line all the stuff that you've been doing then. Where do you think you can pinpoint like sparked passion for environmental? Sustainability Yeah? We'll no. That's not a broad question at all. I guess in short I grew up around the world of sports. My grandfather, my father actually my aunt, my great uncle all played professional sports in some capacity whether it was baseball Olympic volleyball, so the world sports is literally been part of my DNA. party. Everything I've really ever done a since. I can remember I got done playing baseball myself in two thousand. Thousand ten I was in the Minor League organization. Luckily, because of sports because of my father taking our family, Japan when I was a baby. During the Major League Baseball strike I I got to grow up in Japan, will fit in Kobe father played for the Hunting Tigers and just seen and interacting with just such a different culture. Everything was done differently. Travel was done. Done differently family friendly gatherings were done differently I grew up going to the zoo basically every day, so my affinity for animals, and just understanding that people really help each other. A community is really the important aspect of anybody really growing into what they want to be in so when I got them plane of two, thousand ten I'm sitting Amir just didn't really know what, I. I wanted to do when you have time to reflect you. Look back and one of the things I really look back into was my proximity to waste now. Most people their proximity to waste is, either they're throwing it in the trash or their lugging the there been out to the curb, or maybe they're you bugged out that the a big utility truck is going down the. The street and get into way of everything they own. The landfills owned the trucks, the routes the tracks. They all had big old houses in private jets and nice trucks, and I always saw the benefits of trash so when I got done playing two thousand ten I said. You know that's that's something I. WanNa get into how or where what is to look like, but I know. Know that the world of waste is what I WANNA. Do I need to figure out what that means and how I can personalize it just like someone else who didn't know what the heck they're doing. Just kind of in, and you realize that it is really transcends every aspect of life at your work. Your house at your local bar at the local sports park waste is. Is Everywhere and I really just saw that there was so many opportunities to angle in a different direction or show people that simply that stuff you're throwing away is valuable. It's a commodity. Why do you think Waste Management? Rubicon Global? All these huge companies exists. Is Because waste valuable? I Dunno, Gandhi, a few of the people kind of said variations of it, but waste is A. A resource misplaced I've really kind of stuck to that and really been focused on showing people bare themselves their businesses, their way of life in a new perspective, so they can hopefully see what they do in how they go about their day in a different way, so you know sports I grew up around the entertainment space. Some mother was an actress and a playboy playmate I. have been on sets and I've just seen what teamwork looks like in different capacities, whether it's on a field or in production room or in a round table. Read for scripts. It's important aspect that I think a lot of companies struggle with so you know in a bid broad stroke I really just wanted to find a way to show people what they're doing in a different way, and then give them opportunity to connect with organizations that they could then kind of power each other, just like any good team would do point guards great, but if you don't got someone to throw a lot to or to set a good screen, you kinda just out there running. Running around aimlessly so I hope that answered the question. It was you know it's a lot there? There's a lot of family history that kind of goes in and out of sports and waste, and you know what that looks like, but those are kind of some of the things that got me there and truth be told the the spark again comes back to sports. two thousand thirteen. My grandfather is working for the Saint Louis Cardinals he's been working with them since like the fifties or sixties or something, he's got a lot of years in the game and they called me the day. They're leaving to go to the Saint Louis the watch the world series game. They said Shane. Our neighbors were supposed to watch the dog. Things happen they can't. Would you mind coming out the Phoenix and watching the dogs just taking care of the House for two or three days while we're gone? Yes, sure grandma, you know. I'm still in and out of trying to figure out what I'm doing my life after baseball, so I head out there and I go to hit some golf balls in a driving range nearby, and a younger general walks up and goes. You know I don't know you. Obviously, but my partners got stuck at the airport. Everything's paid for. Would you like to come play? Again twenty five years old, hundred and fifty dollars around I. Don't pay. That sounds great. Let's go ahead and play and for those of you. That play golf. You're stuck with somebody for three and a half four hours. So you get a Lotta time to talk in, you know. He was in the solar development space and you know that just took me down such a rabbit hole and. Alison I got into. You know waste, incineration and solar concentration all these crazy things that took me to France, and linked in two partnerships from around the world and all of a sudden. I'm sitting here. Talking to you. trying to figure out how to change the world. So was that enough? Yes, that was great. And before we get into kind of everything that you're doing now. I didn't WanNa Kinda back up and talk about waste a little bit. I saw her instagram like right. Before the pandemic, you had a chance to visit a landfill. And obviously you know being in the industry I think that I can be a bit jaded at times because these are. Issues and images and videos and kind of experiences that we talk about all the time, but you know for people who don't know how. Sobering moment that can be like what is a landfill. What surprised you about being? Atlanta, what was that like? It's one of those things that you think you're prepared for. You can look at videos you look at pictures. You can look at diagrams of how they're constructed and all those things, but when you really there and you're standing on what you think is just a normal like hillside in. You're looking down to this big Rabin where they're dumping. They got the trucks coming in and. You're talking to the lady who's giving you the tour and she goes, we'll. That's the base in there. And when that's done, it'll be as high as where we're standing now and you kind of look at it. You're like. Wait a second. What what do you mean? She goes well that basin down there is visually the low point, but there's actually another ten stories of waste and Phil Underneath that. and. She goes just. You have an understanding where you're standing is fifteen storeys above the baseline. So you're thinking about like wait, I'm on a thirty story building. Of. Trash and fill in their only. Thirty percent filled at this at this landfill, we went to several actually couple material recovery facilities in when you really see where these miniscule half second choices we make between one trash or another been or a plastic bottle or reusable bottle. It's hard to really understand what those choices mean. Until you see where they end up, and you see keeble siphoning through different waste streams on a conveyor belt and thrown into different bins, and then that could separate and. And then it gets compacted these big squares, and then you realize those squares end up on a container ship and get shipped somewhere around the world to get dealt with. There's a whole plastic season, so I mean I. think that's something that most people don't realize. Is that the proximity to a landfill? They just don't realize how close they are. They don't realize that you know right around. The corner is a local landfill and you know everyone wants. Wants allow in the morning when they wake up and it smells a little rotten egg, like or sulphur. That's the landfill. That's you know they're flaring or they're burning in converting that that natural gas into energy. You know they don't know what the Blue Little Cng logo looks like what that means on the back of a garbage truck or a bus that all comes from from waste in some way shape or form, and so for me, it was just. Just really great fit for be their boots on the ground. See what is actually happening. Just see the size of it, and then realized that there are hundreds and thousands of these all around the country, and we have good ones you go to some parts of the world and I. It's just really a hole in the ground with no, no engineering whatsoever, and it gets into the waste water streams. It's definitely a pretty incredible moment when you're there. I mean that would spark anybody. WanNa make a difference, and now you're the founder of we go for two so kind of walk us through the mission and inspiration behind what you're doing I mean. selfishly I really WANNA know the significance behind the name and then what kind of stuff and what kind of industries are you working with? And what kind of results have you seen? So we go for two is the Sustainability Agency so you know obviously growing up in sports and growing up in baseball in particular. When you go to, you know that's you're stretching something. You already have in the bank like base hit. You're going for more. More like that it. You've already got bank. You gotta hit your. That's GonNa Count Towards your stats. Let's stretch it out. Let's see what else you can do. And I think when I was starting my company looking at names, and I was always saying we. We gotta do this. We gotta get together. You know you can do this with us. We together all these. We's very team oriented and all of a sudden. You're like. Wait a second. That's it like we all have to go for two. We all have to take a little bit extra. We have to go a little further, and then obviously it's a nod to the two degrees Celsius that. We're all trying to stay under here. Try to keep our planet at a habitable level, but you know we go for two is really about being a platform organization. Succumb be the best they can be. While others do what they do well in that all contribute to this greater goal of working towards whatever working towards whether that's reducing waste or increasing our water, efficiency or Making it more publicly aware what's going on giving people more access and more information to not only see impact on the world. But to give their kids and their parents and their friends access the same thing, and and that's really what it's been about is. How do we use what we already have what you know very apollo thirteen like we. This is all we have. You know we can't always depend on crazy something new and innovative like let's be innovative. What we have you know so for me. It's really about taking that extra step of doing a little more you know. You could sit back and be happy with that base hit, but a doubles great, and that's really kind of where it. All kind of sparked from I've heard you describe. We go for two in some of the programs before like. It's a personal trainer to run your business more sustainably. I really liked that analogy. How do you developing breakdown like a program? Let's for a minor league baseball team. How do you get started? will just like any good personal trainer. Any any good coach or you know analysts would do. Is You got to assess what they're in what's great about? Most sports facilities is you know from? The average person they they kind of look saying they run the same. They have the same attributes, but really they're all individual unique. They're all snowflakes on her own way. You know they all have different contracts agreements with their local city, or they have different utility agreements and. Some organizations don't even pay for the utilities, all kind of engrossed in their in their lease, but you know what we do is we get in there and we just get a baseline. We have a couple industry partners who work with WHO we get set up to do benchmarking so a lot of it is just you know we compare it to like a personal trainer. Let's get your height your weight. Let's get your body mass index. Let's figure out what makes you okay now? Let's see you know. Are Your shoulders a problem? You have issues with your hamstrings. All of a sudden. You start to realize that hey. Hey a lot of the work is just identifying you know what makes you unique and then from there? We like to build a program to fit their desires, and what they really need most some teams they need more focus on water. Some need more on H. Sack, or they're trying to increase ticket sales through social media. You know so. Those are all things that we take into account, because really it makes it the easiest for these teams to transition into sustainability kind of program, if it's not just silo D-. If it's not only focused on led lights or water reclamation, you have to really encapsulate all that. That together otherwise, it's very, you know it's kind of like a funny way to say, but it's very checks. Check boxy. That makes any sense. It's like Oh. Yeah, we did that today. It's like well now. You have another game tomorrow and another game the next day and another the next day. How do you continue that down the road? You set pillars and foundations, so no matter what's going on, here's our solid foundation. You know you can do a a bench press, but if your arms on the wrong spot or you're doing shoulder press and you don't have the right positioning. You're GONNA do more damage than. than. You're going to improve yourself and I think for what we see. A lot of these teams are just starving to make this transition, but they don't know where to start sounds really expensive and the teams that do make that transition. They aren't seeing the results. They anticipated so everybody just kind of bales and goes back to the way. Things are done and were stuck so for us. It's really about just assessing what's there. And then we start to shed light on things that people thought they already knew. And then they realized within perspective with a different kind of mindset. They see things a lot differently. What are some like? What are some easy adoptions that you think that like all teams I mean regardless of League or conditions or anything can. Begin to implement if they're not already doing. What are some of the low hanging? So. I'll give you a perfect example of one in, so I can't. Which ballclub was I always always kind of lose track of what teams it is, but I was talking to the GM. He's going into some things that they're having issues with I talk about kind of that low hanging fruit, the low cost high impact things that people can do basically day one and he goes well. What are some examples of that? Said well. Is Your concession, stand run by a third party or is it internal because we have a third party? Excite and do you? Pay For utilities that they use. Yes, so you know when they turn stove's off or when they unplugged the commercial refrigerators, right? We'll know. Most of the time were not even allowed in there. Said Okay so you pay for something, but have no idea how it gets to that price point, you just know, be paid for it. He goes. Yes I said okay. Well. The first thing we would do is we would get a hold of what the concessions are doing. We would set just simple guidelines because what ends up. happening is like fryers and stoves and Ovens Fourth Fifth Sixth INNING! You don't need to cook chicken anymore. It's David. There's no reason to waste food, so let's turn the stove off. Hey, when the teams out of town for a a ten game road road trip. We don't need the commercial frigerator running. That are empty. Let's unplug those things and as I'm saying this. He goes wait. Okay, so another thing. I'm thinking of. I said okay. This is exactly what I'm looking for I'm curious where you going to go. So when the gentleman who's outside watering our field when he takes a phone call for thirty minutes, he shouldn't just drop the hose on the ground running right. and. I said it. Simple enough. You would think that that would make total sense. He didn't even see that opportunity until he started getting inside and perspective into another opportunity, so that's kind of the things that we really see as a benefit for teams right away is just understanding that something you do in one department is going to affect another department whether you realize it or not, if you. Implement a recycling program in the concessions area. Only that's going to trickle out into the rest of the ballpark. Because now back concession stand is going to be have a promotion where it's all about reusable cups or you know they're going to want to. Maybe put more placards up around wastebins, because now. They know that they're being held. Responsible, but positively accountable for what they're doing. You know it's not about like investigative journalism. It's just like look. This is not what you're good at. We can fix it simply with this quick judgment. And now we can then take full advantage of your investment when you make one instead of trying to make the investment and then get people on board the investment and you're still trying to figure out what that looks like instead of. Let's get the bare bones settled. Let's get our our feet in the right spot. Let's get our hips and ride spots, so we can do a squat. Let's not just throw a bunch of weight on the squad. confused why we're not doing it. It right, so that's really what we see is I think sustainability comes as a huge gorilla, no room instead of this incremental steps that you can really hone in perfect, and then by the time you're coming up to make a big financial decision, it's much more clear which direction you need to go in which technology or with partners and how? That's GonNa really be personalized to what you guys doing at your individual ballpark. Let's say for a minor league team or something like that. Makes so much sense. Are there franchises? Minor Leaguer, otherwise that you think are really setting the example. Is there anyone who's? Doing it right, or is it still work in progress amongst the whole or So for perspective, there's one hundred sixty minor league teams in the country. Don't realize that that's that large number. They have ten thousand games plus a year that a streamed online to have over forty million fans a year that come put their butts in seats. Obviously, this year is not going to happen that way, but you know you see you see some organization. The Spokane Indians are really really making an effort with their local utility to partner up and do composting recycling all these things the Sacramento River. Cats triple eighteen there. They've done a lot of great stuff was solar and stuff like that, but there's also organizations that have stepped out in May big know half a million million dollar investments in solar led and water reclamation all these things but You know they were in Minnesota or the northern hemisphere of the United States and. You have to you know three or four months a year. Solar panels are useless in so that's kind of the part about sustainability is it's about being efficient sustainable, not just making a bunch of purchases. And because that's what you think you do like solar is great. But it's the best option where you're in a state that gets cold. Maybe more money needs to go into making sure that we have pipes that don't freeze, so you don't have to heat locker rooms and offices to a out five months a year that have nobody in them because you have to keep your ceiling run water pipes from freezing. So those are the things were teams in? I'm really focused on is making sure that teams choose what's best for them. Not just choosing what they think. Everyone else is doing a team in Arizona great solar. Let's go team in Michigan. Maybe a cogeneration or another variation of of anti freezing technology or you know little Iot widgets that go on pipe, so you know when you have a leak, and you can shut it off your cellphone forty miles away instead of a ten hour. You know a treasure hunt to try to figure out where this little pinhole leak is, so that's kind of what I see as teams really looking to make the effort, but if they make the effort in. In the wrong direction now we have to step backwards bunch of money to get back to baseline again and start over you know PNC. The pirates are doing a great job. Obviously what what's going on in Atlanta, they are one of the pinnacles of of what's going on with the the Falcons stadium, but you know every day a new team is stepping out every time a new stadium. They're the pinnacle and that's kind of the way going so far. You tell crazy when you rake down. It seems like such a simple solution like. The part that keeps getting to me is like yeah, of course. Someone in Minnesota shouldn't have solar that all of those things and I I very rarely have like true lightbulb epiphany clicks and I'm like having one right now, and I did want to go back quickly to talk about you know the butts in the seats like you said you know Cova. This year's going to be different. But I am curious because sports like minor league ball in MLB NBA, and all of these attractions are really larger than life in have these incredible phantoms, and what are some things that you think that fans can do to help their favorite team reach US sustainability goal I mean when you're consulting with the different franchises. Do you guys think of a fan plan or something to get you know the butts? In the seats to recycle their sodas or be mindful of food waster, turn the water off in the back. You know the simple solutions that you're talking about now. It seems like you could or should or probably already. Do you have a way to communicate that to the people that are paying to see the action? yet what I've realize when you're talking about. Fans are talking about bringing new people into anything whether it's a party or some kind of sporting events. There's gotta be some incentive or you know some. Push some drive. So our EKO series program is a we've basically looked at. How do you gain the FI sustainability? How do you take it? From just a business kind of analytical setup of okay, we gotta change this this and will save this amount of money it's. How do you expand those opportunities so more people can grab onto it, so they can expand further, and they can expand further. What is it two three six separation? Remember what it is, but so R. E. R. Echo series program heart of our scoring system is fans, so they have their whole. They have a whole. A scoring system set up. Specifically France vendors have their own management have one staff has another one but fans. Make It. Go you talk about one hundred sixty teams. You talk about forty three million fans. That's Salat and the idea that they are only participating that game for the hours. They're in the Cedar in line waiting for concessions. Maybe they participate you know on social media, our facebook page or you know they come to like the weekly volunteer event stuff like that, but actually putting them into the game and scoring what they do. Do So, for example, what are Eko series program was doing as we were partying with a mobile application that would allow us to bring the fans into the game by tracking their own travel to and from the game, so let's say somebody goes. You know I've been going to the game for thirty years I I drive my car. My kids come. We have our. We have our spot back that we go get there early. And we get to the game and we have our souvenir cups, and those are the people that are are going to really bring in. Go Hey if you took? Of You carpooled and brought neighbors instead of taking her car, or you took a ride share or once a week instead of driving a car, you had a family bike trip to the ballpark you. Canal uses mobile application to track your your carbon footprint reduction in that would then tally towards the team score so it it behooves the fans and the team to work together to see the more fans. We have tracking their their transportation tracking their shopping habits. You know when you get to the ballpark. They can talk about what hotdogs they bought. And you know the the user Recyclable Cup or do they buy the ones at the Ballpark that day? And all the sun now it's more than just tonnage it's. It's individual engagement, so people now feel directly connected to what's going on outside of what the team is doing on field, so the idea that fans could feel success along with their team before the first pitch is thrown. That's what we're really excited about. Giving fans at opportunity to be directly a part of what's going on and be a part of the success because you can't. As a fan, be a part of the success on field outside of just providing energy during the game. But if you could actually be a part of the ball club success in be one of the the fans that's nominated at the end of the year at the winter meetings for being the most impactful on your community. That's where we see if you can incentivize in provide people an opportunity to take control of their own lives and benefit from it. And add that to a fanfare in the team that they love in a city in the community that is embraced them in their family, only just gonNA grow further out and out because you know for example, one of my first things and I I got into sustainability was I was like you know what I'm. GonNa do yet I know and do some trash. Someone just star. Star grabbing as much as I can. So I mapped out. I was going to get like an old ice cream truck, and I was talking all my friends and restaurant people. I knew and all of a sudden. I got people to agree to give me you know I was getting hundreds of tonnes a month. All of a sudden. You're like. Wait a second like that's. I am a directly part of the snow in, so you go around with an ice cream truck full of trash and. I, said this was like I'm just going to start. You know I don't know how to swim, but I'm just Kinda. Jump in and see what happens and like. I said thankfully in doing that when I would go, ask people. Hey, you know. Would you collect your food scraps and once a week I'll come. Pick them up and I would get hell. No, that sucks. Why would I ever do that? You know all these like just quick shot down. No I don't want anything to do with that, so I said okay. I went back to this same list and I said of I could somehow orchestrate where you guys got ten dollars a week at the grocery store. Would you do it? Hell yes, and I'll get my neighbors and make sure they do it, and then they in all solves like wasting. That's ten bucks. That's forty bucks a month. That's that's where it clicked I said Oh. That's all this is people who seem to feel like what their energy goes into is gonNA. Come back to them in some way whether it's going to help. Their kids have better food at school or you know, have a cool recyclable cup. The digging US whatever it is. People just seem to feel like they're a part of it. Not just there to support of that makes any sense, and so that's really kind of world. This has gone fans to me. Are Everything. We don't have sports have what we have. When we get to a ballpark without stance. I don't know if you've ever been to a game. When there's fans, it is the weirdest eerie thing that you'll ever experience. Something about the energy and a bodies in the seats, all energy facing the same direction that is just so powerful in as a player. You feel it. You thrive off in. You know it's. It's science it's. It's proven that energy really transcends outward. I don't think it's any different when you're talking about waster, sustainability and intellect that now I think we're in for a unique sport season this year and I'm curious to see like you said what that's GonNa. Look like I think in incentivisation is everything and you know we try to do a lot of that, too with our customers. Okay? Before we sign off, I wanted to play our rapid fire game with you I'm just GonNa off ten little quick questions disrespected with the first thing that comes to your mind. You Ready, okay? What does your morning routine look like pre covid Free Cova, a huge glass of water. Right out of bed. jozy a shower. Some version of that I'm trying I've really trying to focus this last. Six months on taking some time in the morning to just Kinda. Get Senator to get quiet. Just be one with my but get a workout or something in. It was definitely up there, but at one point it was getting up at four in the morning in California in connecting with partners back east just so I could be ahead of everything in you. Don't get that way. That was kind of my start. What is one piece of advice that you get to? ASPIRING ENTREPRENEUR? Never stopped. It feels like to cliche or something, but it's true and you have to. To do something you're passionate about, and if you can find that passion never stopped because somebody will WanNa join on if you really GonNa right separate. You're passionate about it. Okay I was I. Made You promise that I wasn't going fan girl and I was going to be cool and I've been really cool about it, but now I'm GonNa. Ask you give me one behind the scene. Secret one thing about your time filming real housewives of Orange County. A reality TV is reality in the fact that shot live, but there is definitely editing and will just say production involved. Where where's your dream vacation spot? I did Europe a few years ago. That was beautiful and I loved it Ireland is definitely on the list. That's kind of where my family came from and yeah. I think it would probably be like Ireland obviously like you know. Tropics is great, but I. it would be really awesome to see where I came from and things like that. What is one food? You could eat for the rest of your life in never get sick of chicken. Everyone always says chicken makes so much sense. I mean I can I can do. I don't really eat a lot of red meat anymore. I love fish I used to be able to inhale pizza, but I've really tried to back off I just. Too, much dairy just doesn't make sense anymore these days, but yet justice is something universal eggs. You can throw in there. I guests Bot pretty much chicken everything had taken so why not just go chicken? What are you reading right now? Two things the medical medium, so it's all about nutrition and juice, and you know plans as. Yet, a seller, juice guy and the one I, the one I'm kind of refreshing myself on. It's you know a little more particularly to what's going on right now. Culturally around the world is the Willie Lynch letter I. Don't know if you're familiar with that, but it check it out. It's a it's. It's weird to see a business plan of of how to. Control? People from plantations beyond so little, weird, little graphic, but it's it's really interesting to see kind of where all the stuff I believe started. What is one eco-friendly action that you do everyday reusable bottles? I remember last time. I bought a water bottle a US canteens or cups, or whatever that that was my? One sustainability move I tried to make about four years ago I'm done a lot of bottles. The reused as much as I can, and then kind of trickle out there. What was the first concert? You ever like to tell you the truth? I've probably been to one concert really entire life. You know like a couple like house blues. But I went to Lenny Kravitz. Like. Thirteen we had a nanny that was a little on the wild side and thought it was a good idea to take a thirteen year old to Lenny, Kravitz Concert, which I thought was great, because I didn't even know what I was looking at I just saw great music and people having a good time now looking back. Wow, that was a terrible idea, but that was my first and pretty much only conserve into. If you could be any animal. What animal would you be in lie my I thought would be dog just because I've always grown up with dogs on a shark. Cool because the ocean is awesome, but it scares the crap enemy, so in one of those two in lastly, what does success mean to you success doing something that you love? And doing something that helps others. I love that answer chain. Thank you much for being here today with us. I can't tell you I mean first of all.

So don't just sit around knitting an ugly holiday sweater. see your local honda dealer for happy. Honda days clearance pricing today. Welcome back to tv top five. The hollywood reporter's tv podcast. I'm lesley goldberg west. Coast tv editor. And i'm joined by chief tv critic and my pal. Dan fienberg dan how you doing. I'm doing okay just surfing and ever changing media landscape. How about you l. my god same. This is the amount of change that is happening. Not just in the tv industry but across the entertainment spectrum is in two thousand. Twenty alone is just mind blowing. I can't. I can't even begin to wrap my mind around it. We're gonna try in this episode. But it's just i think every entertainment journalist today especially as we record. Thursday is just. Their head is spinning. We've got layoffs going on today. At disney warner media just blew up that the distribution model. Yeah well we will. We will continue to attempt to do our weekly service of making sense of things as best we can. And if he know an entertainment reporter send them a virtual hug 'cause they probably need one getting underway. Let's start with headlines. Leading off hillary and chelsea clinton will host an apple docu series called gutsy women based on their book of the same name elsewhere at the tech giant. You knew derbez will star in a bilingual comedy series acapulco inspired by the actor two thousand seventeen feature how to be a latin lover and google bought. The raw will reunite with her former morning show. Star reese witherspoon for the psychological thriller service at net flicks melissa mccarthy and her husband and frequent collaborator ben. Falcone will star in comedy series. God's favorite idiot marking the sixth collaboration over at amazon pandemic drama years has been canceled after one season and the retail giant's is super interesting will be the exclusive first run home to the final. Ten episode of history channel's vikings with basic cable network airing the remainder of season six at a date to be determined next year so we talked a little bit at the top of the show about winnowing. Changing this is a great example. Obviously much smaller scale elsewhere amazon. The retail giant has also added twenty new cast members to the lord of the rings adaptation bringing the swelling cast to thirty five with more to come on the casting fronta armie hammer will star in the godfather making up scripted drama series from paramount. Plus which is of course if you've been paying attention the rebranded version of cbs. All access juliana margulis will reoccur on the second season of apple's the morning show and helen hunt has joined. Stars is adaptation of blind spotting on the renewal front. The masked singer has been picked up for a fifth season at fox and congratulations to elliott page on his transition. The actor will continue to star in umbrella academy which was recently renewed for its third season on ethics. Anytime someone stands in their true light. The world becomes a better place. So congratulations to elliott page with all that other way. Let's dive right into this week's top. Five number one leading off warnermedia just blew up the theatrical window. After last week's announcement that wonder woman nineteen eighty-four would stream on. Hbo max and debut in theaters on christmas day. The company revealed this week that its entire 2021 theatrical slate that's seventeen feature films including the matrix sequels suicide squad and dune among others will arrive in the same idea day and date in theaters and on. Hbo max it's landscape shifting. It's a paradigm shift. It's just it's probably among the biggest news of the year it is and it's obviously. It's sort of a culmination of the years kind of tiptoeing trends the attributes speaking you know we had obviously the decision to send hamilton to disney. Plus and of course you had new lawn going to disney plus for the additional surcharge. And then you had learning box and then you had wonder woman to hbo. So everything's kind of been taking steps in this direction but there had always been in each of those cases the insistence that it was not going to be. Basically an all encompassing thing you know so disney plus could say we're having moulana available for extra money but definitely black widow is not going the same route will hear you do indeed have hbo. Max getting the entire twenty twenty one warner brothers. Theatrical slate that is well over a billion dollars in production budgeted motion pictures. Yeah that that is just. Massive is obviously horrible for the theatrical movie industry. There's no good thing about it. And they're saying at least at warner brothers. This is only a twenty twenty one thing that they can backtrack. But what are the odds. That you can really backtrack from this leslie. Yeah i mean. I don't know i don't cover the the theatrical business but it's you know as the expression goes wants the genie's out of the bottle. It's hard to go back in so you know it is worth noting that these films will be available on. Hbo max for thirty days or a month. And then who knows. What i'm guessing. They'll be probably still in theaters or or have some other distribution whether it's it's pay per view or on demand and cetera or whatever. The kids are calling it these days you know. Dvd releases like this changes the entire ecosystem and even before the pandemic winnowing was a fascinating subject to follow in the films on the film side. Because you're looking at. How long film can actually play in theaters. Because before it goes to basic cable or four comes to pay per view before it goes to cable and has all those worldwide deals but yeah this has been something that that's changing in the in the last few years and and has been expedited by the pandemic and as we said last week when we were talking about wonder woman nineteen eighty-four. This is a major major major. Play to bolster. Hbo max and the company is saying that it's the plan for twenty twenty one and obviously in response to the ongoing pandemic which i mean it's a disaster l. a. I'm afraid to leave my house so you know but to your point. Can the go back into the bottle. I don't think so because you're this move. I mean if you're a theater operator. I'm pissed right. That's a lot of money that you're losing but you're also completely close right now and a lot of areas in the country i mean international is a different subject but hbo back also not available internationally yet. So then you've got the roku mess of it all like this is. This is a developing story. And you're gonna see a lot of analysis and and hot takes coming in the next couple of days but it was important for us to touch on as we cover the tv industry that look the line between tv and films and streaming and theatrical. That's gone now. It is and so we can repeat an awful lot of the things that we said in our segment on wonder woman and you know some of the most of them remain true that the future as we say is streaming. There's no question about that. That is how everyone is viewing. What the business model is and so for. At and t. For warner brothers. The advantages to having each max as a robust destination streaming platform. I don't know if they outweigh the amount that you would lose the after clear on all of these movies clearly it but it has whatever value has and that's a lot so you know it's the same thing we said. Last time there are a lot of people out there who simply don't know they have access to hbo. Max and this is going to be yet another way of getting those people in but as we go forward. I think the story is going to continue to be more and more as viewers are having to perform triage on how many of these streaming services they can afford. There's a lot of basically justification to making sure that you're not one of the ones that gets cut the you know you don't want to be hypothetical small streaming service acts if you know if hbo. Max is the entire word brothers theatrical library. So that's with. Less game of thrones plus friends plus big bang theory plus every single program that hbo has ever created sopranos etc. Plus all the the entire catalogue of dc movies plus j.j. abrams shows plus greg berlanti original dc. Tv shows with a higher budget like green lantern. I mean they're doing everything in their power to make. Hbo max worth fifteen dollars a month. Which is the same price. People who haven't cut the cord yet like myself are paying for. Hbo proper so we get hbo. Max because we already subscribe but this is the other piece of it too. Is the free trial for hbo. Max is going to end we. At least according to the internet is going to end before wonder woman launches on christmas so. At and t. warnermedia's parent company. Wants your fifteen dollars. Want your fifty dollars a month. And they're going out of their way putting all of their relationships with actual distribution people and partners at risk to get your fifty dollars a month. So yeah this is like you said this won't impact you if you already have it because you already subscribe to. Hbo but the thing. I was wondering on. Twitter is at what point that ceases to be the case. At what point the you already pay for. Hbo so you get this for free quote unquote at at what point that has to cease to be like at what point there becomes the hbo max plus secondary theatrical tear. You know and how much would you pay for that with all of these movies. Would you pay an extra five dollars a month for seventeen warner brothers. First run theatrical movies. Of course you would. Yes without question you would but would you pay well. Yeah i mean if you pay fifteen dollars for a ticket to go see a movie if it safe churkin hispan- fifteen dollars a month to see whatever to is out that month plus all the value add and there's tons of originals coming gossip girl and all these other. tv shows plus the entire library talking about the. I'm talking about the need for dishes surcharge. Something else to go on paying for. Hbo twice what i mean. They're forcing you to cut the they're forcing people to to choose either either. Cut the cord and pay alicarte for. Hbo max and disney plus and netflix and hulu and discovery plus which was going to be this topic but obviously bumped. But like you know. They're forcing people to choose. Cut the cord or subscribe to these platforms and right. Now we're paying for all of and and not and not just pay for all these platforms but at some point. They're forcing people to choose between this end netflix. Or this end hulu amazon. I think at the beginning of the year of the gap between those three services between netflix. Hulu and amazon and everything else was a large gap. And i think now that. Hbo max has definitely put itself right there in that big group of four and that just that all of the other streaming services whether it's eventually soon to come in all paramount plus whether it's the peacock which exists but a nose not in the conversation and they would insist a peacock that they're doing something completely different. Because it's it's primarily free it's primarily ad-supported blah blah blah but but you know not only is money finite but time is finite so. Yeah but don't forget as you talk about peacock don't forget you know of all the platforms. That had their launch most disrupted. I'm gonna give that prize to peacock. Yes it sucked the friends reunion get bumped to next year because no one can can sit in the same room on the on the burbank. Sound stage and get back together on the orange couch but peek was supposed to have the olympics as a launchpad right like you don't get a bigger launch pad and that's coming in twenty twenty one the you know. The office is leaving netflix. At the end of the year and going to peacock that basically is going to be a second soft launch for them. In the end the olympics went went. And if i think they happen next year we'll be another launch too. So you saved by. The bell moved whatever needle for however many minutes last week or whenever launch over thanksgiving and as far as i. It's really in the conversation anymore but peacock still going to have a huge twenty twenty twenty one people huge twenty twenty one p throwing money twenty one. Oh my god mine. It's melting yet going anywhere. I definitely didn't mean to imply that. I think when it comes to having but i'm just saying it's like you have to get you're gonna want to watch the olympics and watch whatever obscure event that you want. I mean for me. It's you know if there's softball. I'm going to stay up until three o'clock in the morning and softbank but like you're gonna want peacock to get the olympics. You know people are going to wanna watch the office if they don't already own it on. Dvd or if they even have a dvd player anymore. You know there's every services doing what it can to make it a must have to your point dan. so what's the breaking point is the cable. Bundle the breaking point. Because you're not gonna still pay for all access or paramount plus to get a making of the godfather show or to be able to watch repeats of csi and presumably the new csi. I don't forget the rebooting that to you. Know at some point the streaming bundle is going to become something that has to happen because you can keep track anymore it is. It's the same. It is raising the bar and raising the stakes for. I would still argue that in terms of having a a rollout screwed by the last eight months it's pretty tough to to beat quickly by And this and this will be our last chance to discuss by because quebec ceased to exist on december first and we already talked about. Its its disappearance but rest in peace kwa by but yes so the you know. Obviously we're going to keep talking about this every week but this this is such a titanic shift for an entire industry not just a medium within an industry this is an entire industry shifting thing and so thus we covered it even though it's largely movies it's not like dude is going to win a ta or next year. Every opportunity to say that to make that joke. Dan and i always chuckle. But i do want to do a quick mini segments. So we can call this. Tv's top five and a half this week number. One discovery plus is a thing that is coming january for. This was gonna be our first topic before warner brothers. Kind of blew up the the film world so in short discovery plus will be the biggest home for nonfiction programming online. The platform will launch january fourth. And be home to content from lifestyle networks including discovery. Tlc hdtv food network own travel channel. Animal planet the service will cost you five dollars a month with ads or seven dollars without them. It's going to launch with a bunch of preview content from chip and joanna gaines upcoming magnolia networks at tobacco later in twenty twenty twenty one. And it's basically all the fiction stuff that you've probably been spending a lot of time watching during the pandemic that's all going to be on discovery plus because they were smart and they didn't offloaded elsewhere they saved it all these all the streaming rights to launch this big service. They all ninety fiance in the seventeen thousand spinoffs from that at your fingertips starting january fourth for as little as five bucks. I watch all your home improvement. Shows all your cooking. Joe's i can watch all my home organizational stuff. Yeah i was gonna say if you've been waiting to binge house hunters this will be your opportunity to binge five hundred plus episodes of house hunters so then you know. This may be the best bargain out there right now. Absolutely this has value and it would have been a very worthy topic all on its own but sorry discovery plus he just got usurped. Yeah discount play this game. Dan discovery plus disney plus paramount plus apple. Tv plus eighteen plus. I'm just gonna start calling us. Tv's top five. Plus you say we added a an extra half a segment this week so daria earned it there. We go well. Let's move on to our next topic. What do you say. Dan absolutely and the next topic is. Oh yes. it's time for another ride on the executive carousel. It's time for another one of our favorite topics where leslie explains. The latest paradigm shifting industry executives changes. And i nod politely so this week big shifts and i mean this you know honestly this could have been another number one topic for the week. It would probably board a lot of our listeners to tears but it still with some of our listeners to tears thank you okay thank you know. No no let. Let's be real are plenty of listeners. Out there who would have no clue what was going on if it were not for you in this particular department and i am one of them so basically break down. What happened this week involving. Abc disney twentieth. tv fox. A bunch of names that we've heard before where things stand leslie. This was basically the next wave of the disney reorganization so we talked a little bit briefly. A couple of weeks ago about the changes to peter racist group. But now you're seeing all the changes in dana walden's entertainment programming groups. So if you are a fan of television and watch a lot of content on abc and on hulu this affects you so what we saw. This week is abc. Entertainment president kerry burke who has been in the job since november two thousand eighteen when she took over for for channing. Dungy is no longer running. Abc instead. She was moved over to the studio twentieth century fox television which dropped fox as part of the disney acquisition earlier. This year so the studio now is absorbing touchstone television which was rebranded from fox. Twenty one earlier this year that was birdsall keys division. Burt sulky is the executive who developed shows like homeland for example. Burt sake is out of job instead. He's going to return to producing and signed a whopping four year deal with disney to develop content for across the company's portfolio of networks streaming services. So what does this mean so. Abc is now going to be run by. Who lose craig erlich. So the guy who is developing all of these shows at hulu hulu is penis. shrill the handmaid's tale the guy greenland. All of those shows is now overseeing content for both who and the broadcast network so craig. We should note has spent a lot of time in the broadcast world. He previously was an executive over at fox. He previously also in addition to to working at fox for a number of years. He has studio experienced during his time. Working for peter roth at warner brothers. He's a respected executive with good taste. Obviously the handmaid's tale was the first streaming show to win. Best drama the emmys. He's developed a lot of stuff that we've talked about on our show. Dan and is the latest move to really better integrate disney for the streaming future. Like how many times can we can. We say streaming is the priority in this episode. And then on this show it's like a bingo card or a drinking game now. Every time we say prioritize streaming take a shot. Or if it's in the morning. Take another shot of espresso. You're listening to us. You know with your morning. Walk so yeah. This is disney consolidating resources so at the beginning of the year disney had four tv studios. It's now down to two twenty. Which is going to be overseen by kerry burke who before running. Abc was the number two over at free four and before that was a producer and an executive at nbc where she developed shows like the original will and grace this little show called friends and another maybe a medical drama. You may have heard of called. Er so she's got great taste great relationships. She's one of the main reasons why david kelly came back to broadcast after swearing off for a number of years and she's going to be working directly with all of the roster overall deals at twentieth tv. So people like dan fogelman for example has a deal there so she's going to help develop these shows and will work with the different networks. Like hulu and craig berwick at for eight for abc and tara dunkin at free form and help figure out what content that the studio is developing is going to go where the disney portfolio including disney plus. It's cetera a lot of changes. So what does it basically mean as a greater emphasis for erlichs. Maybe he's got some data of how some of these abc shows performed the next day on. Hulu i don't know maybe that'll change. I have no idea. We're still waiting to see this literally. Just happened a couple of days ago. But it's again you're consolidating and resources you're putting people in better positions to succeed who have strong creative relationships with top show runners and you're empowering studio executives to really be the ones in charge of deciding what content works best within the company and the other piece of it is all of these studios. Yeah they're closing their doors. They're not gonna be selling very much to outside companies which is a big reason. Why you're seeing netflix's continue to to be a draw for for a lot of content creators and scoop up a lot of these prolific show runners with big overall deals so yeah my head's spinning. And as part of this to your. There's a lot of laos as we said at the top of the show. Last underway today at disney. You know our hearts go out to those impacted. There's a lot of talented people at that company. They they brought in ton of really smart executives as part of the fox deal from a few years ago but yeah that company is losing a lot of money. I think this is all and all of the steps that there have been along the way just a reminder of how massive the disney fox deal was when it happened you know. I think people realized how massive it was but this underlines it again that the that they're still basically reorganizing pieces from a deal that came into place two years ago. I find it interesting. All of this happening with no mention of fx it sort of puts fx in its own little island space. Run by john. Landgraf probably is both what he wants and encouraging if what you want to believe that they're going to continue to be their own little fiefdom within this kingdom so yeah i mean that's a good question. We did receive a listener. Email asking about john landgraf specifically and he has maintained for years years that he wants to stay at effects that the only lane. He wants to be an fx so they wanted him to run hulu years ago. Which is that. What was the rumor craig. Erlich remains in that position. He's been rumored to be going elsewhere up for other jobs for the last feels like two or three years at the very least so what they did instead is at. And we've talked about this at length is they. Set up a tab on hulu called fx hulu where you're seeing all of the new programming from fx launch i on fx or exclusively on fx. So why the last man. In development. For like eight zillion years at fx launching on fx. On hulu american horror stories the anthology offshoot from american horror story. The anthropology will air on fx on hulu and not on the linear network. So the other piece that we're waiting to see how this is going to shake out is how much landgraf will continue to develop for fx specifically versus for effects on hulu and how much craig erlich will develop specifically for hulu versus specifically four abc. And the other pieces. You've got you know all these content suppliers and all these different development teams you have a development team at hulu. A development team at abc development at twentieth century fox at twentieth tv are all three development teams going to remain or is that what's really being hit by layoffs today because i'm hearing twentieth twenty a lot of people. Abc but it is all under. Peter rice's group that are being affected today from everything that as i understand it and i should note as i record this. I've gotten seventeen different text messages from different sources as the story is developing. So there's a lot going on and if sound harried it's well it's because i am a stay saying that. The industry is changing faster than anyone can truly keep up with it. And there's a lot of talented people that that are going to be out of work and we send our respect to those people for for for what they're going through. I've i've certainly been through to my career and it's not fun so we'll continue to monitor all the changes in how things shake out but yeah this is been a the executive carousel segment up third number three felicity. Huffman comeback has begun leslie. Tell the kids where the scandal prone. What really scandal prone but scandal sullied emmy. Winning actress has popped up this week. Yes well felicity. Huffman will is attached to star in an untitled baseball comedy that is currently in development at abc. And what that means. Is you know the comedy is going to focus on the life of susan savage whose the owner of the sacramento river cats the san francisco giants aaa affiliate and it's in development. So what that means right now is it's a script it's an idea. Abc has paid producers to write a script and it's got a penalty is a put pilot. Or i think a production commitment l. That really you know. That's basically just jargon for saying that there's a decent sized financial penalty if this doesn't go to pilot or go to series so they'll have to pay a fee if it doesn't go anywhere and the fact that she's attached to it in an early at an early point is part of an ongoing trend that we've seen of a lot of these these scripts ideas coming a little bit more fully formed. Then just an idea on paper or an idea. That's that's that's bought in a pitch meeting so it's having talent. Attached always helps show kind of get over the finish line or at least get to the pilot stage but yet the bigger piece of news here isn't the fact that that she's going to star in this show. It's the fact that she's getting work again. So felicity offense got a track record at abc. She starred in desperate housewives and american crime the network and this is her first job after she served eleven days of a fourteen day sentence after she pled guilty to mail fraud as part of the college cheating scandal known as varsity blues topic. Here your life. Don't want your show give me pitch instead. Anyway that's off topic the whole. The bigger point of this segment is hollywood. Is the most forgiving town. Dan seems like so. Mel gibson continues to get work are should does felicity. Huffman deserve the next shot. You know what do you think. This is really where you come in. This is dan second nonetheless. No it's both of us segment But no i don't think it comes down to whether she should or shouldn't the part that interests me is what it's gonna take to allow this show to exist on. Its own part of why you attach her name in. The first place is to get people's minds associated and use to her name being associated with this. That's that's just part of what it is. You know you you start the processing player part right now and then maybe when the show actually premieres in i don't know this hypothetical show might premier next september. It might premiere the following march. Who the heck knows i ended. Might never exist. Mapping the great thing about but but still. It's not even a pilot. It's not even going to get made you an idea that they're paying someone to right a script and yet they still have her name the front and center which means were talking about what we might not be talking about. Under normal circumstances we wouldn't necessarily be talking about just a random script about About susan savage the owner of the sacramento river cats. But suddenly you put publicity huffman's name in front of it. And yeah what i'm gonna be interested to see is how the felicity huffman rehabilitation tour goes before. This hypothetical show gets anywhere near airing wanted. They gonna have to do to make it okay to have her. Obviously the things she did was not was not a violent crime. The victims will victims are the integrity of a system that impacts people to different degrees and in which she was able to game as part of her economic privilege. So it's not like it's a victimless crime. But it you know she not spousal abuse naught virulent racism et cetera et cetera. So i'm just gonna be interested to see how they handle her and what interviews. She's going to have to do to discuss this so that it's not the only thing people wanna talk about because abc knows that if they put this show on next september or next march or april if they do publicity for it. There's no way she's not going to have to deal with a dozen questions every single interview about spending eleven days in jail. How do you find a way to preempt some of those questions. how do you find a way. So that people don't need to make that the lead of every review every article every conversation they have about this. That's the real question. I think it's much more germane to felicity huffman than it was going to be to laurie. Lachlan anyway. I mean you know felicity huffman is vastly more acclaimed and bankable as an actress and she was always going to get more work again. It's not like she was just gonna cease to exist so you know what what does she do so that she can go back to business in her career. And it's going to be interesting to see. But i think it is still a notable thing to see how hollywood forgives people how quickly hollywood forgives people and what things hollywood forgives people for because as you say yes. Mel gibson have to make an r. Rated christmas movie and that's just apparently okay I mean he still has representation. He still gets movie job after movie after movie job. Dan i mean and the things his and his and his his alleged crimes are vastly more repulsive repulsive than anything. That felicity huffman did. So thank you for saying that in a way that is far better than the words that were going through gibson his garbage. And that's just what it is but you know on the other hand at some point mel gibson's going to do a tv show. It's it's just one of these days you know so it's gonna be a question of what streaming service is going to be all excited about their gritty mel gibson drama and it's coming so just get ready for it My my bet. Paramount plus someday with a mel gibson. Greedy crime drama. Perhaps nick is a lot of writing it man. That would be a recipe for some fun. But that's not what we're talking about now because that's not what mel gibson's doing. So yes this is. This is a segment about redemption or about forgiveness or just about felicity huffman. Well i feel like that's a good note to end this one on dan up next. Let's go to our show runner spotlight segment number four. Our guest this week is peter. Moffett bafta winning creator of the british dramas cambridge spies undercover and criminal justice which was adapted by as the night of botha's new series. Is showtime your honor which he adapted from the israeli format cavuto. Welcome to the show. Peter thank you so much for joining us. Thank you great pleasure. So what were the steps that that brought you together with showtime for this For your honor. So lewis closer. The producer on the show rang me and she did not career has been in film so she made Shawshank redemption and when harry met sally and green mile. Whole list of terrific movies so I was listening when she rang me and she did not pretty clever thing. I think of not saying his premise right. She just came ryan with what turned out to be the premise. And said what would you do if your child was responsible. Full dot dot dot at innocence. What would you. What would you do if your child came home and told you. They hit knocked-over killed A seventeen year old boy an ran away from the scene of the accident. What what do you do as a parent. I think probably in common with most people most parents would be Go to the police station. Explain everything Work hard at getting a good lawyer and and try to make it work. Explain how your son panicked and is not self and all of that stuff bengals. The second question comes from liz on the phone which is a much tougher question And this is a spoiler alert. I suppose it's in the first episode So i should just warn you. What would you do if you discover at the police station. That the the boy is dead on the road. Roadside is the son of the main man in the biggest and most vicious crime family in the southern united states. Do you go into the police station now. With your son or do you turn around and go home and coming tested this question quite law at with with friends and family and what are actually hundreds of times i've asked people right and nearly everybody says You turn around a new go to canada now. And that's the kind of response so what i liked about. Those two questions is that. Is that when liz finished the cool with me. I quite literally the sounds like nonsense. It sounds like a to speak thing guy but his true like quite literally moved from one room into my study and started writing down other questions. I had about one hundred of them very very quickly. Imagining being that person in those circumstances and asking myself questions like question number three. What would i do to cover up the evidence question number four. Who would i tell not tell would i. Would i tell the truth to the person that i needed to help me. what would it mean to not tell the truth and you got from question. Five question hundred really really fast. Which was which was great. We just told me really really simply to be honest with you. The this was gonna make for a good drama really So that was. That was the genesis at the story of of this production and where in the process was the israeli drama was sort of the basis. For the this where you told immediately okay. We have this format that we're trying to adapt. Did you wanna watch it. Did you skip it entirely. I was told. And i was terrified of watching often my first long nights of the hundred questions and finding that i was thinking very hard and i felt at the time you know well about what the show could be I was extremely worried about watching somebody else's idea of what the same premise could be. Which was the original israeli version. Which is wonderful by the and you should watch it. I stayed away from it. I avoided it. Because i was just didn't one somebody else's thinking in my in my brain wall. My brain was functioning. Okay right i just stay with own way of thinking about this It's it's a bit like. I don't think it's a bit like come when you're writing. Sometimes they're the writers that is bad to read because at voices so strong right that it can. It can get into your head and you know become a problem and you adult to sound sometimes that other writers. If you're not careful so there are strong voices that you have to avoid when you will in the middle of writing pat choice find and it sounds like this was brought to you as already being an american version of the story. How comfortable were you with the with the milieu with the backdrop that you were handed here. I guess i've had such a nice time writing in a foreign language. It's been a real joy an an a challenge and it's slowed me down because every time somebody opens mouse dialogue. It just takes me longer to be sure that what i'm saying feels right But you know. Obviously i've spent the last two years. You know by and large in the united states and most in new orleans so Listening and maybe just maybe as an outsider that the quality of the listing is a little bit different kind of nervousness. That comes with wanting to be sure that your authentic which you know suddenly prevents complacency right. So you and so i've had my moments is usually one per draft right. The people pick out off aheads off out because it says english. English ism and i couldn't see now. I really wanna hear an example. What what is it. Example of an english title the title of the show is unbearable for me to look at right age over. And where's the you off of. Struggle is misspelled horrendous for basic deal with that. That's how i feel. Every time i see the word theater r. e. instead of e r rights. Okay yep says the former copy editor. So yeah you know. You've got an impressive list of a british tv tv work. That showcases obviously your interest in the criminal justice system. Have you had a similar interest in the american system here. Yeah so so so my history is that i was at the out the criminal bar here in the uk. I worked as a barrister for about ten years before i started writing seriously so I have had experience in in britain. And i suppose that's the i kind of felt i'm that takes you inside prisons in inside jails it takes you through the system as a barrister up close to people in crisis and people in trouble And i felt myself to be fairly unshockable British prisons nice their own victorian in cramped ugly places But but but so i came to the us it without sense of confidence in being able to look the way things are in the us. As i do in the uk. Oh my god. I was shocked in a win. Going to angola or going into opie pay all seeing a conveyor belt that is the courthouse in chicago. Which is as you probably know. That busiest in america at twenty six in california where Essentially human beings look very much like their conveyor belt of criminal processing that. There's no time to speak with your lawyer. No sense that you is the peasant appearing in court Have any idea or any right to know what on earth is going on and i- shocking me I mean even just from the point of view the optics to see african-american men chained around the ankles and around the wrists. Being shuffled into court by white people is a it was a a devastating experience. A didn't think it would look like that. I was in chicago on one occasion in a shopping mall on subterranean shopping mall. I didn't know but down there in that shopping Civil court not a criminal a civil code but will not monday whenever it was a busy day for prisoners to be brought to make appearances in civil court right like family matters or whatever. The prisoners for the day brought from prison With chain together in in in a in a chain guy right and they were moved through the shopping mall while people doing shopping on a held back by security we watched a line of chained men being processed through a shopping mall in twenty nineteen. New was deeply alarming picture as you can imagine anthem so i was there to write about it but if i had doubts about it i was very compelled then to to to make sure that i want to try and I suppose shammai shock is the best way of putting it really. Because i i wonder whether people understand that sport. It looks like and we went to the angola rodeo. Do know about that. So this is a an event. Waste ten thousand members of the public invited to an arena in which the does a rodeo and prisoners take pause and the games are things like Prisoners sit in chas in the middle of the arena and a bull is released into the arena and the winner of the game. Is the last prisoner. Still sitting down while the boo charges out them in does what it doesn everything. Most years people get a hospital right As a result of it the claim that the prison makes the inmates love it. Because well i know. I know why they say that. It may even be true because out of three hundred sixty five days locked up that place to be outside in the open Experiencing something different is a temptation. I think ugly and horrendous though it is Sorry i'm renting a little bit but i feel strongly about it. I think it's interesting though. Because the the central story of the show is one of these privileged people navigating the system with their economic and racial privilege. How early on in your research did you realize you had to make it clear that there was. There were the two sides of the judicial system. Was that always kind of in your in your vision or in your process and and one of the key things daniel is is the is the the the main character michael deshea. The judge understand himself. He's unusual thing. I think so i suppose you can call him liberal and certainly working hard to find the truth when it sometimes difficult to do that right in a system which requires speed justices sometimes slower than everybody wants it to be and he's prepared to take the time in the flack to do that but believing in new orleans as he. Does you know tells you that. By far away. The highest percentage of ethnic groups that come through that courthouse. We'll be african-american is just a matter of fact ninety percent also so at the end this is complicated business but It's it's also true. That the the ninth ward and those sections of new orleans wichita predominantly black predominantly poor And that's a starting place for michael deshea. The judge he knows all of that. He has that in his brain. And it's definitely interesting. When other people suffer the consequences of his actions who all those people who he seeks to understand and protect and do well but Which now my hundred questions around questions. Seventeen right which is prepared to allow to pay for what your son has done. Is somebody else's life worth less than your child which is a really good question a much better question in question one and a good question to self. I think so. The story in your honor is is primarily about how people have privileged specifically white people have resources to game the system while people of color dehumanized any race. So how did you decide how much race but also how much economic issues would be the spine of the show. So you won't be surprised to hear that. I do a an awful lot of research is really really important to me and particularly outside and you can see from here from my accent. I don't belong in new orleans. So i had to know that i understood it as best as i possibly could before starting to write about it properly so it's been an awful lot of time there and it is you know. Every day they really is in the criminal justice system That's how it looks and that time it is that exact cause you said as as the people who have african american on city Are up against it when the put through the criminal justice system and their equivalent. Like me so much easier. Pay for lawyer get treated differently. You know it it some. I've seen judges who who don't look the person in front of them right. You have no contact with the person in front of them. Should that person turn around to look for their mother or brother who they hope to get a quick glimpse of in the public alary than that chastised for doing that. In look at me even down to the level of contact in a basic sort of human civility is allowed to be absent in those places. Just really alarming to look and you mentioned the year coming at this from an outsider perspective. And it's interesting. That i feel like a lot of the characters the main characters in the story are also that that that you didn't for example. Have your core family. Speaking with the new orleans accent that a lot of the characters in fact seemed to be outsiders themselves. What was your approach in that respect so the pulse night on met ato in my whole history of time in new orleans. Was the cab driver who took from the apple. It's where i was staying. And he sounded exactly like he was from brooklyn right. That was his. And i sat a you from brooklyn. And he's not all ago boy okay. It's an unit. it's a real melting. Pot of voices is a melting pot of lots of things new orleans but one of the things is the voices in the accents all many and various like london. Lighten under you know you know. I sound i dunno. I dunno like prince charles was on me right. I'm i'm going to say you know. Six thousand different sounds that i could hear on any one day in london at all of whom are speaking english That's true of new orleans as well. You know remarkable difference in distinctiveness variation in sound voices wonderful amends. The music will and then having. Edward burger german director behind the camera. That s- another outsider perspective on the story. Was that something that you always thought was ideal unnecessary from the beginning. I love book with all of my heart because At for purely selfish reasons in par which is a never come across a director who pays more attention to every single word of the script so every stage direction because this is gonna sound a little bit important and pompous. But i really really really stage directions really really matter to me. The difference between a semi code on on a coma is profound right. You semi cuddles there for a reason and everybody should understand. That's why that it is there for reason different from a coma and the hundreds and hundreds of examples of that and ed understands that so he understood for example in the in the pilot there's a the big centerpiece action sequences. An accident right pages and pages and pages and he's shot that and then you get seven minutes of material which i happen to think i would say this would not is remarkable for its attention to detail right because it says at the top of the show you the audience will be inside the shoes of people who are in the show you will shed the perspective of characters in this show right. You will feel what is like to beat a young kid. Who's in that moment at that time And that's really really important. You know this. This show was announced with bryan cranston as the father. Who's obviously willing to do anything. Sometimes even breaking the law for the good of his family. How much did breaking bad have an impact on you and on how you and. Brian decided to approach this character. And the dark choices that he makes so Brian was cost I think when we had first drafts of of about eight episodes right so we will. We hadn't been writing with him in mind. I hadn't been writing with him in mind but it was very important to constant wealth fertile. Very important to somebody over the age of fifty who looks like he can run. Twenty six point two miles because the character is a marathon runner right. Brian has run marathons in the past. His personal best is a little bit better than my personal best for the marathon. So that kind of really indeed to him. But he's i'm. I wanted somebody who has a long way to fool which meant the you need an act to who has a Essential decency about them that they carry with them. You can numb. You can be on the street with prime people come up to him and they say things like keep doing what. You're doing right uncertain. That oversee doesn't mean carry on being a meth making chemistry teacher. Who fox the whole world around him right. It's because is because they feel about brian that he has a an integrity dignity and decency that he just has The old fashioned version of that. If it would be gregory peck. Who i think you know to kill. A mockingbird is is sort of an example of the most perfect piece of costing. He's everybody's dad in that right. So you wanna be. Scout cause gregory peck gothia k. And i think. I think for brian just with brian. He just has that. So it's a long way for him to fall and the that makes his use horrible would journey. I'm a much more interesting. Because he has such a way to go. Were there early conversations. You had with him where he expressed any concerns about overlaps in the thematic ours of the two shows. Just saying okay. I've i've kind of gone down that path before. Is there any chance we can go down this path with the character for example not paths but he but he picked out the two moments in in earlier drafts of two episodes Unbeknownst to me. I mean i've written them but i didn't recognize it at the time when brian says That's just way too close to something that happened in breaking bad So let's not have that until the end mean it was was a. It was a rally used veto right. But he used it. A couple of times quite rightly. Because you know. I'm gonna say that. Three quarters of the audience will have a seen in love breaking bad. So it's important. Yeah you know in a landscape like this that is so. Just everyone is now trained for binge-watching how did you approach the the weekly nature of how you want it to tell the story no differently less as the honest answer you know i. I've never written anything with an showtime doesn't have commercial breaks but anything that i've written for anybody that does have commercial breaks. I never right for the outbreak I think that you should wri. And then if you can't find your four o. Five moments in any episode which are exciting places to stop and go and look at some yoga for a bit then. You're not doing your job properly. So i kind of i want to be pushed around by. The foam really is supposed the answer. I think you need to tell your story really really well and then make it fit with the demands of the of How it's being shown where it's being shown whether it's once a week. Oh no that's almost a truthful answer. But i suppose i would say to other things I suppose i do a little bit more attention to what is the hook. The if you. I knew that the person the audience was gonna watch it in five minutes time rather than a week's time and an end as the quite good thing. Which is it's quite good known. Audience is going to have a week off right because sometimes you can say to yourself. That can sit with them for a bit. I know that it has to sit with them for a bit. I know that been seven days here. And that's quite a good feeling actually sometimes and as you were writing this to one of the big things that's happening specifically in american. Tv is we're seeing shows that are announced as limited series that find success and then all of a sudden they're no longer limited in that their renewed for a second season or they become an anthology. How would you describe your honor. That's really well put question. So it's limited series down there at ten episodes. Do i know what a second series was would look like Yes so it's a short order drama series that could live on for a second season with the same cast or is it like we'll bryan cranston be back. Is there a new case every season as you kind of think about the future of your honor and this franchise itself. How are you thinking about totaling talked about never discussed amongst the group of with with not with showtime. Not with brian with anybody okay. We haven't got that goal narrow thought about it atto full focus on what we're doing now but you know you'd be a strange human being that learned writer to knock contemplate what episode eleven might look like as you finish episode ten right and of course. I've done that interesting. Because you you did criminal justice which became the night of here and when you did a second season of that you did entirely separate second season right whereas when people have talked about a hypothetical second season of the night of over here. People talked about a continuing with the same characters. So where does your mind go most primarily. Would you wanna look at you. Know a different version within the justice system. Or would you want to look at a different story. About michael deshea can speak specifically to the nato because resolves character. He's done he's finished. He's he went from you know from a normal life right the way through the processing of the criminal justice system on the other side and we understood how changed your walls by all of that okay so any season following that with him in it would just be about how he's been affected by it. We which doesn't sound like a great premise. To me full following his character john deters character is is another thing you know the the lawyer who representative I think you have to be really rigorous and truthful with yourself That key question which is is the story over or not. Just have to toughen yourself untempted by those. Who want to tempt you into doing something you don't want to do because after all it's two or three years of your life right and i'm fifty years old and you know so i'm probably halfway haha right but his so you know. Two or three years matters the k. Really does so you allow yourself to be honest because it'll make you unhappy. I think in a television gets things wrong way round really really badly right you walk into a room and an half an hour later having pitched to a group of people an idea which may be semi formed or whatever right and they might say yes to you okay. Then than the three is begins right. You've probably spent you know a few weeks or days kind of thinking about it as hard as you're able but the commitment that you then make is absurd. It's you know what i would love to do. A writer an. I keep telling myself i'm going to do. This is is come up with idea a not tell anybody right and spend spend a year with your idea right doing all the work all of the research that needs to be dumb so that it's as close to being in a fully formed in your own brain as possible. Then you know whether it's going to make you happy for three more years or not right. And it's not true in america but it was less in america. I think in american television but unfinished television. There are a lot of shows that great and great and then full full-fat at the end right. And the reason is what i just been describing the it all turns into a big hurry at the back end of everything right story telling becomes something which is a done into shorter time and it's a problem it with some television. I think will with this as your first fully immersed american television show. How did you like the process of being in the american tv beasts was it. Was it what you expected or was it. Surprising constantly made me profoundly happy. Some of that profound happiness comes with being surprised constantly. I dunno it's only anecdotal. Daniel is only one show. I had a tremendous time. I had lovely people all around me all the time we had kind of wondrous crew who you know sat out seven months while the pandemic raged an ole came back to finish the show. We had thirty five days at the end onshore. We shut down in march and came back on october. The seventh everybody was there and it was pretty great to see people in So we had a lovely time so it was. It was wonderful. It was wonderful. You mentioned having to come back following the the key the production shutdown in march. What would you say is the biggest change to the way that you filmed the end of the series. And we're there scenes that you up having to cut out that you were unable to film with the new safety protocols that are in place. Yeah i mean. I i suppose leads the great luxury of this. The dreadfulness of the pandemic was that i got to look up and revised and think about material that hadn't been shaw Including the last episode so Which is directed by bryan cranston. So he and. I were able to kind of like you know. Talk through every moment. Every scene in kanda debt. With plenty of time in a not actually knowing if we'd ever get back to the weird thing about it but it. I think it really helps you know. It was for a terrible reason that we had a breathing. Space three quarters of the way through. Shoot but it you know. Everybody should do it if they can. You know it was really useful. Actually what was. Brian always slated to direct the last episode or was that something that changed as a result of the pandemic became a really good idea because his engagement with the show is so kind of complete. I've never had more notes from anybody right from our after lead actor. He's also obviously ep. But the great notes in really valuable We sat you know once a week in new orleans for four hours at a time and talk through blow by blow. Everything at his car was doing and everything every other character was doing. What a what a privilege a luxury to have boots on the ground communicating to you what it feels like to be the boots on the ground in advance of being the on the ground while being the boots on the ground so the when you're writing the boots on the ground boots on the ground sound right and everybody fits and it's also safer because those boots have already been on the ground and you don't need to bring in and out someone who hasn't been on the set and have them quarantine before and after and get tested and all other and all that other stuff that's happening across the industry. So how about the experience of having to live with the first eight episodes during the quarantine period. Because i assume that gave you a much longer production window than you ever would have had Did you was there a certain point at which you had to stop yourself from watching those episodes because you just couldn't do it anymore and and the real answers that i'm still doing it. You know where rum as we speak editing episode nine so when when not quite finished yet The show goes out on sunday. As you know the first episode and we're still working on it in post but it was weird when we went back because you have to rehearse in roskin face shield so act as a in a wolves between them that an an Office six feet away and all of that stuff but you know what the real answer to actually. I'm going to answer. This isn't a question. But i'm going to answer a question that i would be asking if i were listening to me. And the answer to that question is none of us. Were down a coal mine. Right we're working on a film set. it's okay. I think film sets may maybe in these dreadful time one of the safest places to be on earth. Frankly because the protocols are so good and so tough and so full but it's it's it it worked and we're lucky. Yeah it's just a shame that there's still so many positive tests in and shows it feels like i'm reading about this every single day. That another show is being shut down because of positive tests or with a member of the cast of the crew or yeah. It's it's crazy but also you know the virus out of control here in la. I think we were just talking before we started recording. It's you know pretty bad in london to well one thing we do to to ask to the show is produced by robert and michelle king who are tv royalty here here in the us. What was your experience working with them. Like and what do they really bring to the to the project thousand curtseys to begin with dot com thing but tv royalty featuring few drinks later all. Okay thank thank ray. I don't know how robinson michelle because they making. I think three other shows at the moment right plus seemingly being able to pay full attention to everything we do on your own so you know middle of the night emails from i dating he sleeps. I didn't either them. Sleep in a whole focus and attention is on the work which is an extraordinary and very very very very lucky to have them. They're great they're great and just we always like to wrap with the with the same questions. So what have you been watching and enjoying lately. So i watched them queen's gambit because My wife said oh. You should watch queen's gambit. So i went onto her net flicks and clicked on netflix and started watching gone and i loved it. I thought water episode and she was in the same room as the time she was watching me watch it and then the end i went by that and she said well what happened and i said the mom just died and then she said you're watching episode four right and i thought i'd be watching episode one right and he was episode and it totally totally works as really grown up piece of television which doesn't bother with lots of exposition right and just takes you right in. I recommend having a watching episode four as episode. One it's lovely do know though. Do i go. Do i go back to one one two three and then four again like i just carry on in my great happy state of nothingness show. I dunno. the first episode is terrific. So i would say you should probably go back to that okay so now. My question to that is what would happen to someone who watched episode. Four of your honor. I oh my god absolutely no idea what was going on although lover recap. I'd love to do a one hour. That would be cool right. Excellent well thank you so much for joining us this week. Peter we appreciate it spin guam. Thank you so much. Your honor premiere sunday december. Sixth on showtime number five as usual. We wrap things up with the critics corner. Among this week's major new launches are selena. The series and big mouth on net flicks shameless return for its eleventh and final season followed by the debut of your honor on showtime dan. What you got. I'm gonna lead with my favorite thing premiering this week. Which is the fourth season of big mouth on netflix. This has long been one of my favorite of netflix's cartoons for adults and it's really strong in the fourth season. I've seen the entire ten episode season and it made me laugh. it made me cringe at made me horribly. Horribly embarrassed uncomfortable. It made me very very relieved that i was not watching episodes on a screen in a public place that anyone could watch. It is absolutely more graphic and more harrowing in its treatment of adolescent anxiety than it has ever been before it is also a show up such boundless empathy and boundless empathy for both genders which is perhaps the thing about it. That's best is that it has a great awareness of what it is like to be a boy going through puberty and girls going through puberty and it is It is uncomfortable in both respects. This season has one of my favorite vocal. Cameos or guest starring appearances The show has done previously. And i will not spoil it but i will tease the the cameo comes from a former. Tv's top five guests. So that's all. I'll say on that subject and it also includes one of my favorite musical numbers that the show has done. It is also interesting. How the show handles the vocal transition for the character of mri The biracial friend within the group who was formerly voiced by not by racial jenny slate And has changed voices or changes voices during the season but the season is very much about her coming to understand her own racial identity. And it's it's a very interesting way that they've tackled. What could have been an uncomfortable. Change to make. And i think they've made it in a way that is substantive and character centric and worth looking at in terms of how you handle a difficult situation and so they're they're steering into it head on and yeah but once again. This is a show that you do not wanna be watching in a public place Both because you'll be snort laughing loudly and aggressively and because a lot of the animated imagery is out there Anyway big old fan of big mouth and it comes back on friday. We also have a couple of shows that we've had shutters on for the past couple of weeks and you can check out our interview with moist more of from episode ninety-six from november twentieth. And he talks about bringing selena story to net. Flix if you go back and listen to that interview you will hear moisture discuss the desire to make this a family viewing experience and i think that is the thing you have to know about it going forward and you have to know to expect. It is a very earnest show. It is a very family forward show. And if you go looking for it to be something else you will be frustrated by. It is very down the middle. It is very earnest. And i've seen a lot of critics just not enjoying it for that reason and i don't we say all the time. Oh this one's for the fans not for the critics. No this this one really is for the fans not critics. And i think it's a true thing but i i understand how it's the intent of the story that he wants to be telling it is it is hero worshipful. Full it is. This is not a. This is not a dark and gloomy gritty. take on selena's life. What with half of her family as executive producers and advisors. So you wouldn't expect it to be there. Were some things about it. That works for me. I stopped watching after four or five episodes and that was just because it just simply wasn't really for me. But i understood what it was doing and i think that some people will either embrace it on those terms or will tune out probably much faster than i did As for your honor. You just heard peter moffett discussing that one and i'm mixed on this one as well it is. It is such a good cast. It's you know bryan cranston in his first main. Tv role since breaking bad. 'cause i don't count Sneaky pete or that animated thing he did on some streaming service. I'm forgetting about but tremendous cast. So it's bryan cranston it's michael stool barge. Hope davis watch long enough. Margo martindale shows up isiah. Whitlock junior shows up such a good cast and the story which is really and truly a lot like the story of defending jacob and a little bit like the story of undoing very much history of privilege family about to go under patriarch attempts to hold the family together et cetera et cetera. It's so familiar and It it's tough because sometimes you would just like for it to be a little bit more distinctive indifferent because everybody in it is so good and you just want to sit and watch these people. Sometimes you don't necessarily want to sit and watch this show but i found it watchable. End the central dilemma is compelling enough that it drives you along so that would be those would be my thoughts on your honor and those seem like those things coming up. I haven't seen a lot of the bigger movie type things that are coming out this weekend. So i'm definitely going to be watching. David ventures manque. Which is premiering on netflix. This week and The ribs ahmed amazon drumming drama. Also premiering this weekend so there. There are lots of things to watch so plenty of stuff to watch some good some earnest and family friendly etc. Well that feels like a good place to wrap things up for more of dan's weekly recommendations.

The Morning Toast

195: Businessman Beau: Tuesday, December 1st, 2020

"Good morning millennials. We were all. They never have little behind. I'm sorry usually. I hear the click of the keyboard and ted in here it so i was just like giving myself a second but i'm sorry. Good morning millennials. Happy tuesday we did it. We made it past the monday after a long weekend and we deserves a pat. We deserve a pat on the back. You deserve a vacation so true but it is a sneaky tuesday. I woke up this morning. Yesterday was such a hard long day and it's like it's only tuesday. Ugh i actually had the most wild dream. Like george lopez. His publicist was hounding us to get george on the show. And did we have georgiana toes. Georgiana toast so then it was like it was the day of in georgia. Wanted to come on like this particular. We literally our fingers weren't working so we like couldn't get the email written. And i think it was probably my subconscious thinking that i'm always sabotaging make my own business. You know what i mean. Sure to look into it. That's what i think is shrink would say. Did we have george on toast did we. Not we woke up before he was scheduled to arrive. You gotta go back to sleep. I know that's like the worst. When you really are having an amazing dream legs franz your boyfriend or something and then you wake up and you're like bitch go back to sleep and you can go back to sleep but you never get back to the dream for sure. I feel like the worst is like. I'm always just having such an involved dream when my alarm goes off. And it's like i need to finish it out. It's not like an amazing this. I'm not to win the lottery. But like i just need to see what happens here. It's like just the middle of the movie and you gotta get up. That's also the weird thing about dreams. Like i find the timing of dreams to be so suspicious. How it's like. Why is it always that. I have to wake up right when the dream is getting good right. When something's supposed to happen i've been waiting for something to happen. In the dream up my alarm goes off or sometimes my alarm plays a part in my dream. Oh of course club. Turn your phone off. I'm gonna club. And that's the song they're playing in the navy allies like it's actually my alarm like how does my brain. No you know. yeah for me. It's always like in vietnam turning it off and then but it's still and in striving me mad because i'm like turning it off but i'm just not awake to turn it off. That's the worst. You ever have like a dream where you're snoozing and you dream that like you got up and brush your teeth and like again like i have started my day. Yeah and then it's like. Oh i'm so great. I'm not feeling tired at all. And it's because they're still asleep yet. I love talking about dreams. I think it's one of the most interesting topics of conversation. Are you being sarcastic. Yeah 'cause i think actually talking conceptually about dreams is somewhat interesting. But hearing other people talk about their dreams. I think one of my like core pillars like. I don't want to hear about your dreams to repeat myself. I know when people talk about their dreams. But you know you're talking about dreams. Subconscious not like their hopes and wishes for the world. Because honestly here seeing care about someone's hopes somebody just tuned into the show and you're like i don't wanna hear about your dreams mcmahon this girl's meeting like she's had a rough year actually watched our episode of the toes yesterday. Because i thought it was so funny and we were just being so funny. I just loved yesterday's episode when elsewhere being funny while two other times one. We did a patriot episode where we started to answer book. Seventy three questions. And it's so funny because the questions are like interesting engines every abstract. Yeah and we One of the questions like tell something that we don't know about you and we come to the conclusion that you guys like literally know everything about us. But i found that some of the questions like you are learning some new things about us questions coming from different angles. I've never no one has ever asked me. Like what would the soundtrack of your life be called. You know that wasn't a question. Maybe i skip that one because it was on. If your life was a musical what would the marquee so yeah. That was a tough question. But if you want to hear our answers head over to peach dot com slash morning toast. Also what is so and then we were also being funny again on. Instagram line was just such a funding tree for anyone who called jackie and is instagram. Live last night. It was so funny. We were just being insane. You know that our honestly when we face time like that's our commerce but it was just life everyone to see so. It was funny for those watching on youtube. You might have noticed my new mug. That i'm actually some new merchant. You can get a shot morning. Toast dot com. It is for those not watching on. Youtube is a beautiful black mug. That's his thirst monster on it. Because i love to drink and i'm quite thirsty. Yes you are. Also what is so crazy is that today is december. I i know you know when i was going to bed last night. It was twelve. O two. And i remember mike bennett turnover. I'm like it's december. And he was like that's crazy. Sic i remember last december truly like it was yesterday because nothing has happened since that is so fucking crazy like december. That one really got me. I know you know it's a little freaking out about it. Is that the twenty twenty. It's almost over which i'm glad for. Everyone's like twenty twenty almost twenty twenty. It's going to be better but like twenty twenty almost over and there's no road to better right so when i was in the middle of saying was that like i know he just finished up. Finish each other's sandwiches like it's not getting better. So twenty twenty one at the beginning like might also be like a big steaming pile of shit. And i think we all collectively need to like except that because our expectations are like way too. Like we're gonna wake up on january first like everything's going to be already no. It's not because it's already. It's only thirty days away. Yeah and nothing has changed so scary so scary. It's very upsetting depressing to think about. Yeah i'm speaking of the lottery that you literally just by men's club been like holding onto that transition. Do am glad that you could remember what you're going to say. I started lost speaking of the lottery. One of the car. I don't wanna spoil it. But i'm not gonna watch it and what else already had one of the characters like who Is on the island before it was on island won the lottery back at home and now. That's irrelevant isn't it. Oh clearly and like. Nobody believes him that he's worth one hundred fifty six million dollars. We're like yeah sure hurley. Whatever you say. And we'll talk about it in the tv recap but just remind me. Because i wanted to talk about it yesterday. And i wasn't able to also do you remember like two weeks ago. Our last episode when we were talking about something. And i couldn't remember what i wanted to say. Yes i remember that you think anyone cares. Should i say what it is. I remember what it is to now. She has say it's always nice. I've been having these moments like yesterday. We were talking about on the patriot. And we were talking about deporting way. And i was trying to think of a freeze. And i couldn't think of it and so i stumbled but what i wanted to say it was. He's a creature of habit rose. He's always at the same restaurants. I don't know what i said. Oh he's a lover of senior at one time. I was going to say to is so important. That when you remember remember stuff that you need to share and that you follow up. Yeah what i was gonna say ago. We were talking about that. Viral video of the kids from michigan. And how we are so obsessed and how anymore lovers such a good song and if you if you need a reminder to pretend too much present than i ever seven on my shirt to leave me on here dancing alone. The kim make up your mind. Well you can leave me out here. Okay i i nine nine. So what i was gonna say was that i was really waiting for justin bieber to address the viral video like in any way like celebrities love to get it on like they love to be annoying and getting on viral moments and actually just went. Live right after right before our episode of the chosen. I was like in bed watching his live commenting like have you seen the video and i just wanted him to acknowledge me or at least like the video and he didn't but that was the anecdote i was going to share whilst on the toast two weeks ago you were gonna say i hope. Justin bieber knowledge. Is it no and tell my story about me. Being life was after. No it wasn't wasn't it was going to tell my story about being a big loser commenting on justin bieber's live like have you seen the video. I'm sure he has but he should have said something about. yeah like. I'm sure the streams for any meeting my lover or so much higher astronomical yet also you know what time of year it is. This really excites me. Christmas spotify end of year data data data season. We'll be getting our data. I was just like looking through photos from this time last year. And i saw may screen shots for my decade review and i was looking at like twenty fourteen most played song. It was a little mix song that. I didn't recognize the tatum like houses. My most played songs. We went to listen to it and i remember it now. Of course it's so amazing like now it's like gonna be my most listened i'm curious other music platforms are going to do that because it was like show popular last year and it's like spotify thing but i wonder if like apple music will do their own version of it since it's like so popular they have such limited data. I don't think so. I think a lot of people like you either. Like we use exclusively spotify so we can't imagine having any apple music date but like a lot of people do. I don't mean say only use apple music to buy songs on itunes if i want to put them in a blog for sure or like a video star yet or we're doing toast radio yet but other people like use it as their mainstreaming platform and i'm just curious. I like people are going to spotify india. Speaking of toast radio. Don't worry we're not doing another episode but our holiday toast radio episode from last year like still applies to this year. So if you're looking for a radio program that will get you into the holiday spirit might suggest toast radio christmas. Twenty nineteen did you watch. Cma country christmas. I did not mean neither. Because and i really fucked myself last night because i was saying i needed to read the book for the redhead. I started it. And last night. I had some free time on my hands because there was nothing on. Tbn instead i a new season of married at for site nose up until like one o'clock watching it and i just i'm not that girl anymore. I don't wanna be that girl like it's just it's upsetting. I think it's because bruno sweets is at camp and your whole balances all got me on such a good schedule. Dare i say a sleep schedule. And now it's like. I'm up till one. I'd like waking up in such a half in. It's the drama the drama israel. Well speaking of drama tons of things won't not tons. I would say mediocre stuff here and there but you know we can make out of a molehill here at the morning tests. And that's what we do every monday. Through friday on our youtube channel to make sure your subscribe and i think i think could get right it. I think it could be time for the stories that you need to know before you wake up and take a bite out of your morning toast. I'm so glad you brought that up. Jackie because you know. I've been dying talk about it for a minute. Today's episode very appropriate to summer.

Love is in the air sources saying that rana is dating longtime friend a separate rocky months of romance rumors i heard about this did news comes after a page six reported that the couple was spotted having dinner with friends at the beatrice in new york weekend and now a source is telling people that they are dating brianna rocky together. So let's let's what through riyan like most recent dating history because she had that very short fling with drake and that was everything in the store. Even though like he embarrassed himself was just so clear like he was so into her she was and she was not an honestly. I don't think him and his ever recovered from abc. Because it was like really embarrassing like when he made that speech at like the bmi as or whatever like she swerved on him hardcore like just so not interested then she was dating prince billionaire hassan jimmy yet and they were later years for for a long time and i actually thought it was going to be it for her but it recently came to an end reinitiate so interesting because she's a very rare type of celebrity who is like a list and never have to lift a finger. Do know what i mean like. She worked really hard on her music and then her clothing savage makeup and now she's just amazing place in her life where she's just raking it in and she doesn't have to step out to like work as a celebrity like she is just eternally famous and now she could just focus. I feel like everything around her is thriving like her. Businesses are so successful now. She's gonna focus on her and like maybe it's just been the guy next to her all along you know maybe or i'm like i don't know some part of this story just makes me feel like they were at dinner with friends in. Everyone's like me more than i feel like. People are always shipping with someone. And she's like no. Who do you ship with. Ooh i feel like for a long time. It was drake that you're reminding me of that like various sad. The as that's to sad no. I know it was like for all the people who were really rooting for them. It was so exciting and then it wasn't. Yeah because i really thought that was gonna be for them. It's finally this is a super cute couple. yeah. I don't know if i see her with someone like in the music industry. Neither do i. That's actually the guy she was dating before. I'm like very very rich like cosmopolitan man of the world. Like that's actually exactly what she needed. Right. i mean that's why i was so successful. They dated for three years right. We need another one. We do another like rich mysterious. Dark handsome man. Yeah international man of mystery. She needs a businessman. Pro like one needs a businessman. Bo go get yourself one. that's what it you know. it really boils down to. It's like if you lay your head on your pillow and you look over. And there's not a businessman bow there. It's like what the fuck you doing. What are you doing. Yeah no. It's so trail because you want to know what's so great about businessmen bo businessmen. Both sorry is that obviously there was this mental like they could provide for you. that's ideal just. I'm very progressive. But i'm still a woman who just wants to be taken care of. And i think that's crazy to say like i just wanna be taken care of but also like businessmen the good head on their shoulders most of the time and i just feel like they're good partners you know. Yeah i also feel like a businessman bo when you are in a list celebrity. I think like a team of celebs is like people are taking advantage of them. Like they have managers each other paying all these people all these different things and businessmen bow can come in and run it like a business. You know who. I think an bo. Actually a quintessential businessman who. I don't think. I don't think we ever thought now that i think about it. He's really the perfect business now for reality but just in general. I think i know what you're going to say. Okay if you want to say if you guess what. I'm thinking because it's so like random i seriously you have to kill them in a lips. No but it's my gift. I guess what you're thinking. I will give you dead ass five hundred dollars okay. I'm going to give you my guests. Now you'll eat one jason terry. Thank god. I can't believe you knew that he's a businessman. But what you just described about why it's so great to be a successful woman with a businessman. Who always looking out for you. Like that's really how. I feel like jason target and caylin relationship is like so mutually beneficial. I feel like he is just like so caring about her business and he's really really smart like finance wise and you present an even. When he went on the bachelor he went on as a businessman like when he started dating caitlin after the show he came into the relationship like as a businessman and offered his services checking wreaking out. And by the way. I'm not paying you five hundred dollars like obviously you have this it. No but also when he was on the toast he was talking about how they worked together. New really. is this like great like celebrity business relationship and like of course a relationship is about love but it's also about living together and come existing in creating life and i just like warning your partner and i feel like they have literally the most ideal relationship when it comes to their bases like caitlin. Is all these things going on. Jason is like huge background in finance business management. And he's just like over here managing and it's like so ideal. Yeah he believed. I in the business. I knew that is so crazy. I we really spend too much time together. We have one brain. Yeah that's exactly what it is like happy they are. They are proof of our theory that everyone needs about one hundred percent or businessmen. Gal whatever your preferences are like you just need a businessman in your head. A business woman. Business person businessperson. Yeah yeah no. It's it's good. That was crazy. That was crazy. What was story oriana. So i actually agree with you. I could see like everyone just being like dramatic here and trying to like make that chapman but also this would be a couple agreed. Yeah one of my biggest regrets is not going to the anti-torture at barclay center. Yeah i agree with that juba. Like do you like monumental things. Concert regrets and obviously the time bruno mars was here and i was sick but like i was sick. What was i going to do really couldn't go. Yeah when when the wife of pablo tour connie's was at msg and aspect to get tickets. And he said yeah and like. I'm always like i'm always like in charge in my house and i'm always like making the plans and ben was like let me do it like i want to get us tickets on my great and of course literally than the concert for like rare totally forgotten about it. You're fucking instagram story. That you were there. And i literally did not have the one with the floating saying yeah i speak. I'm like look. I handed over the plans to you and we're sitting about on wednesday night like that was one of my biggest regrets and riana at barclays center. Yeah i'm sheriff. I keep thinking i can think of more but like those are the ones that like haunt you like especially now. There's no concerts at a secular thing. If all the concerts you missed feel like sometimes you go to a concert. And it's like really i got like i'm like sitting there bored waiting for it to be over. No because you want to know why you are a concert hall like you just go to concerts because like like i go to dinner. Do you know what i mean. I will only go to a concert. If i'm obsessed and that's how i like. I always have ten ten times concerts. Because i will not go unless and then when i do go like i will spend extra money on great seats like yeah. You just a random man. In times square. Borough go like that's what you guys do so funny because my time hop is like me margot dana nicole one to like barklays for ninety four seven like country. Add that actually sounds sam hunt performance right after the dui but he didn't amazing job. Yeah but that's i also feel like a concerts are the highlight of my life. Like when i think about when i'm like happiest the most you know endorphins in the air serotonin in my brain. It's matt concert and so it's like okay. Maybe not every hunter is going to be experienced. But like i'm gonna be on the road to happiness. Why would i just go to this one. I really just can't believe you guessed. Jason target like i i. It's not that surprising. It's not no because like we just had said to me like we have things like we. We know that we know about each other. Like if you were like oh what's an example of how patsy being invasive like dennis to think hard about it then i would say dennis is currently. Yeah ok some more romance news. Tiktok star addison. Rae confirmed she's dating bryce hall for the second time. Why are you singing your tongue. On his what the kids are doing this body. Yada yada at no. I do not support this. Do not endorse. I think this is like the most worst decision and could have made. And i feel like we come on here on the show. We're like such big fans of addison and we say like everything she's doing in her career is just like so stellar whoever's managing her as a genius and. I think this is a huge mistake. I really do and margot is their number one fan. No she was. I thought that we ship. No i all in. The harbor is nothing of the sort she has. She always been dating. Bryce isn't the on and off but they've been off for a while and now this is always like the talker. She's in but yes there is no other. There's no other talks. The first of all i just think like from a business perspective. I think that addison could date literally anyone else. It would be like so good for her business celebrity. She's a beautiful girl who wouldn't want to date her like. I actually think she could find someone better in terms of celebrity k. I also just on all the shady tiktok pages tiktok room like. I know a lot about bryce hall like i know. He literally punched away because the waiter told him not to bateman a restaurant like he's an animal and i just don't think that's who addison should be hanging out with an associated herself with and i saw some videos of him like kissing a girl this weekend in a bar or something like. I know that addison knows that and i just. I don't think that this is the wisest decision for her and above all. He's just not my type. Like addison is so cute and beautiful and she can do better. Oh wow okay. So the truckers for. Addison are agreeing with me. Wow and they're backing up because they're like lead they're they're getting out of the ports set they're getting out of the port. They are backing out. I mean i just was getting shit. Because i stand her. Change my mind. no it's just. I don't think that this is right. And she agrees the young girl like she probably feels safe with him. And i totally get. I agree with you that like she could be dating someone and her star could rise completely like obviously we know he's married to saucy baby but not it's just like i think bryce hog it's so much out of his relationship with addison. Addison gets out of it. Like i think he just brings her down and i said what i said love. Maybe let's go on a pause break while this rear trucks back it up so of course the minute we pause it stops. I'm like. I'm truly one day away from up this window and literal fashion. My and be. I will do this every day. If you just shut the fuck they'll go crazy if you do that. Nobody else i. You'll get this every day but if you're just completely time from ten to eleven no trucks backing up except on tuesdays truckers for shaft. Show up. oh for sure. We love them. Also i feel like this news about. Addison needs to just one do a pouty face for sure and then the renegade like i know margot's obsessed with them but that's because margaret's young and reckless and i'm not margo i think margot loves addison just like we love addison more and like when margot sans. She sends all facet and she not. She doesn't choose she she wants. What's best for you margaret mortgage. Just the exact type of person you want in your corner when you're a celebrity. Yes so she.

That's n o m dot com slash. Toast okay the big news. Eliciting huffman has square to acting role. This first acting role after her prison. Stint those really fast. Yeah the desperate housewives alumna who served just eleven days of a two week. Jail sentence last year has signed on to star in an untitled. Abc comedy inspired by the life of susan savage owner of triple a baseball sacramento river cats according to deadline. That sounds like a really good show In general yeah. I was a. I didn't know what the show was about comedy. I was really hoping it was loosely based off of what she went through right. Nobody it's about like a powerful woman. A powerful woman baseball team of comedy love to see the project will co star zach gap got skin. Who was in the peanut butter falcon and a bunch of other people who are working on this project. So felicity huffman and like her career. You can't help but want to compare it to laughlin right. And i feel like loy law was just such a worse position in this whole college. Admission scandal for a million reasons one. Her charges legally were more because she paid more money to. She came from full house hallmark channel very wholesome family content and she was like oh from everything immediately and will most likely not be back on those networks and doing that type of content because it is family friendly and like christian values and they just don't want to be associated with that and then she also legally like her her case went on for almost a year longer like she's in prison right now right. Yeah and let's see got out last year. like hers. went on for so much longer. I don't know why. I'm sure it was like her lawyers recommendation but like i just feel like the two situations which were similar even though they had different charges like i would have preferred to be listening. Yes i mean of course but also think that just like lori laughlin was on all these like family shows and family networks felicity huffman like we said at the beginning like this is something scotto might've done so it wasn't actually. She did do it. There's an episode where she tries to get her twins into like a prestigious kindergarten to write them a check or something. Oh that's so funny. So i i it's interesting. It'll be interesting to see what happens with lori in the next year because also felicity did get out in october. Two a year has passed a year. Whoa yeah no. It's crazy but it's just like watching the to court cases and then like the subsequent fallout and how they both come back. If lori does choose to come back. Felicity was like this has been this big news. I think that she's eating coming back acting like she could just retire. William h macy is still on shameless. He makes a lot of money. She made a ton of money like they could just like retarder. They could retire. But it's also big news. You know she got a job. You know it's both. It's like the fact that she decided to do it. And that they would let her back like notoriously con- Controversy averse like just like big media companies and corporations. They're so lame like they smell like even the smallest bit of controversy and they want nothing to do with just drop people left and right. So i do find it really interesting that felicity and was able to get a job. Yeah i do too. The show sounds interesting. Best comedy felicity huffman. We'll see yeah. I don't know if i'll be watching it. But i will definitely be watching the course of felicity huffman career. Yes that's what that's a show. I'll be tune into next up. some more. Love is in the air. Mean girls star matthew meager star. Jonathan bennett is engaged to tv. Host james von very sweet. Yeah jonathan bennett. Had like a really interesting life. I feel i know it's like there was such a lull. Yeah the last ten years and now with all the mean girls reunions on the hallmark movie and is hosting capabilities. But also i feel like he's like now sort of like an influence there because of the way that he engages digitally with his co. pass content hundred percent. I agree with you. There was after mean girls. You would think like he played like the hot guy airtime teenage dream in one of the biggest like teenage movies of all time. And you would think that would make him into like the next brad pitt. But then i think after the movie there was just just like no traction for him. And i know that for a few years. He was just like quietly hosting on the food. Network of that cupcake bake off. Show i think it was called like what was that show where they like. They had like two from bakeries across country like participating like cupcake challenges towards the end and they would like become the cup caterer for like some of that. I think it was called like what was called. Unwrap cupcake wars. Somebody like that and he was quietly doing that job. And like every time to aaron samuels and then he really parlayed that into some. It's actually quite impressive. Yeah and like we said a few weeks ago. He's now in a hallmark channel. Christmas movie called the christmas house and hid. That's the first homework with featuring a couple of crack yes fabulous and so he's engaged to james bond who's a tv host so couple of hosts getting married couple of host married. Feel like this is just a good year for him. And i'm happy for someone who's having a good year. Yeah jealous up. Yes definitely nice news by the story. A little loss of love news brandon blackstock is seeking four hundred and thirty thousand dollars in monthly support. From our queen. Kelly clarkson and let me tell you something like you'll get in. I don't know if this is like bad to say. Because i really am like all for equality of genders like i like to a fault i would say like i'm so jet like i just think like there shouldn't be any sort of inequality but something about like a man wanting spousal from a woman. It's like gero job bitch. You know a woman were to do it on like just do it you know. Maybe it's just because unbiased as a woman but like i don't know something about your team woman yeah but something about like a man like wanting spousal support like like. I know that's crazy to say because i'm so for gender equality but like it makes me sick. Sorry sorry that you're so sick. He will have a twenty one and also because that's an obscene amount yet and she was granted. Primary physical custody of their two children so he's requesting four hundred and thirty thousand dollars in monthly spousal and child support. But like where's the child support going if she's the primary custody queen. I think that might be a big element of why. I feel the way that i do like more often than not pending like some like crazy. You know situation. The kids go with the with the mom. The mom needs or its joint. In which case the if there is a parent who's not working they need spousal support to provide for the children when the children are within yet know something about just like really wealthy people getting divorced in like how it spreads like released so interesting to me. Like i think the fact that like jeff bezos says wife got half of amazon is like the best thing ever and like. I'm so here for that. But in this particular situation i'm just not here for brennan. Like trump coming for kelly's change yes. Whoever printed name brandon whatever a source told the people that he has people was going to say the publication but the publication is people. Yeah matt zine that he has been quote unequally unreasonable and his requests for child and spousal support as well as attorney fees. Kelly's offered to pay for all the kids expenses but brennan seems to think he is entitled to a need three hundred and one thousand dollars in sao support and in one hundred and thirty five thousand dollars in child support per month. That's insane his as million dollars a year. He's request is granted he would pocket more than five point two million dollars per year to care for himself. Their daughter river rose and son remington alexander even though kelly as agreed to cover all the costs of all the kids everything and to take care of them one hundred percent feel like kelly is a lot of things and one of those things. She's a reasonable person. I don't think she's trying to scam her husband. I think she just wants everything to be fair. Think she's a fair person and this same. Yeah i mean. I don't know all the background ins and outs but this just seems unreasonable. And like taking advantage. Yeah this is giving me marriage story. By of course like i'm on team. Kelly always always. It's like. I'm on the voice on team. kelly always. This is so sad. How much money thing. Kelly clarkson is i feel like. She's like oh. Yeah i'd be like. She's always like since she became. Famous has been making really good business and financial decisions and good jobs and she's never become irrelevant like she's heard lows highs and lows but she's always worked always towards she's always released music and i feel like she'd never live like crazy life like shows up like this humble life nashville so i think she must have like one hundred million dollars. That's a lot at all. So i feel like like now. She's in peak kelly season. We'd be paid like twenty million dollars a year to do the voice like crazy amounts of money. Yeah but let's not twenty five million. But i remember like lesser talk show. The talk shows huge her music her music. She has children's book. She writes songs for other people which is like a great way to make money. But i remember on x factor. They used to release how much people were getting paid. And like demi levato the season with demi levato britney spears britney spears got paid twenty five million in yes britney spears like huge so that's probably really high but i know all the american idol people. They make so much money for that season. Because it's a huge network and it's a huge show so the one of her biggest streams of income e. Let's take a look at our books. Cook a little. I mean maybe if things get really messy you might see the. I'll step in new like sometimes had information is published when we found out. How much anchor schneider was making. That was like divorce like that whole thing. A civil wars Tv recap i talk about lost just conceptually and if you've never seen it. Please don't tell me. I'm spoiling it. Just you is.

So i'm about thirty episodes in two lost which is literally the beginning of season to like it is a show. That's what you're always asking for. Yeah and it definitely has like. We first started at me in ben. We're like this is amazing and then it really gets like dry. And there's so about it that i actually don't like and just finding really interesting because i think like when it was on tv. And i wasn't watching. It live like so many of my friends were. It was like as big. As game of thrones like ending like it was like this whole big drama. And i think maybe just so much has changed in the last ten years since loss was on like. I don't think it's separate leak. It's good it's a very good show. I mean that was like in the day when it's like abc fox. They were making the best show. We're making the best shows and loss was the best of the best now with all the streaming services to take. There are so many quality amazing incredible shows that you'll probably never even get around to watching because there's just so much content out there like the bars just completely raised. It is right. yeah so. I'm i'm not. I don't think. I don't think that makes loss to bag show. But like in the age of like game of thrones the crown all look. We're living in. The golden age of television easel. Shits creek like losses is just like one one of many. Yes so it's not a bad show by any means it's definitely like super interesting and you like really grow to love some of the characters but i just i. It's just killing me. Like what the fuck happened to them. I just want to the ending so bad and it's killing me not to look it up because it's getting a little boring and i'm only on season two and i've heard that seasons one through three other bathroom on alexa. This is the best So maybe he'll skip to the end. Your husband inspired made because he said that he loved it so much. Yeah he watched shit recently. You know how i feel like. I know how. I've heard things from not from him but from like chatter yes. I'm like almost sure. I know how it ends anything. I don't wanna say it. Why because i just want people like having me like. I just don't want to say but i'm pretty sure i know what happens but i don't want to say it because like maybe i'm wrong. I don't know. I don't know why i think that it's just like in my brain. Yeah i think something might be thinking the same thing hundred percent and it's totally how it ends but it's good. I don't know if i would recommend it like hardcore now. Thirty episodes in some like definitely gonna like finish it but it's hard because usually watch on my own and so much of my job is like watching. Tv and recapping. It's watch tv pretty much all day. Ben has a real job. And when i watched like six o'clock when he gets home. It's like a moving so slow now. Yeah that's good balance. I guess i'm watching. The new season married at first sight. And i do the do. The meredith fence called it maths yet. They do call graphs which which i learned and the first two episodes all the couples just got married. There's four couples and honestly like i was getting emotional. Like really explain me entire okay. So i felt like before i watch married at per se like i thought it was an insane. Least show like stupid concept where they puck to people and then have them get married and then go figure it out but it's really not like that like there's thousands of candidates. They will also to one hundred. They went down to fifty go to their homes. They have like a sociologist. Com loved dr pastor to talk with these people and really find the best match from like the thousands of men and women that had applied and they choose four couples. Sometimes three this season they chose four. Who are compatible. In every way of life in their faith in the way that they're messy or clean things like that like they really do their due diligence and these people who have signed up for the show. They're not like thirsty bachelor. Contestants right they are people who for one reason or another like have not been able to find love on their own right like really seem like decent people who who want a partner in like want to be married and just be done with it and go on the show to get to have a career. I'm sure there are people who come in like that with like altarum ribs but like this season especially it really feels like these people like really want love and they're obviously like being attracted to. The person is a big part of a relationship. But it's not the only thing like when you meet the person they meet on their wedding day. Okay they turn back. I don't know. I've not heard of anyone turning back but it's like if someone were to turn back it would mean that they weren't there for the right reason because i have to expect that the person isn't going to look like what you your dream that of course. What are you look like right. So they meet on their wedding day their families they have a wedding ceremony and they have like some time to talk about. Everything is kind of really awkward but the way that these people are just like so excited and happy and like their parents are like. I never did this. Show like coordinate. The wedding plans it. I think so because all the weddings saying okay and their parents like went from having a thirty year old single child who is an relationship in ten years to like a son in law daughter-in-law and like they're getting married and like they're really it's really joyous and i was just getting emotional like these people on a really think that this season nine like the couples that they found the are gonna to work. I think there are some like re. I think three out of four of them could work. But then i saw like the previous season like people are packing. No always seen that bars without gallery. Shows love to pack their bags. So it's it could go either way. The episodes are really slow. But i just have so much more respect for the show and the concept now be seeing like how much goes into it. And it's not like just plug to people are like gary because you wanna me married so people have been really wanting us like dive into like the tlc reality show sphere some during married at first sight and obviously i think one of their bigger shows is ninety day fiance's before the ninety days and they've actually seen quite a few episodes because is obsessed with it and it's like always trying to get me to watch it but some i know it's like a funny show but somehow always end up feeling really sad because some of these people just make such bad decisions and i know that it's real like i saw this episode where this girl theon say. What does that mean. i don't really get it. It's like and let's before the ninety days they're dating before the ninety days or ninety days the other way they like a million spinoffs but ninety day. Fiance's is people. It starts with people in america who have met people online over the phone who live in other countries and of decided to get engaged to get like the canine visa. Gifted live together for ninety days. I don't understand the whole thing but something it's something legally but i just see these people making decisions like this one girl who lived in oklahoma who had never met this guy before she went to visit him. I forget where he lived Maybe morocco and he was so mean to her that she like literally left back to oklahoma and then wanted to go back and brought her like four year old daughter to a country where they had nowhere to stay. He was such a wouldn't let him stay. Let the and it was like the grandparents were crying begging like leave. The kid with us it was so upsetting satanic. So i don't get why people like the show. It makes me want cry like it's so sad. That is really sad. That's not like what married at first sight is except i did watch most recent episode and there was actually a really cute couple of the scarlet area from new jersey. Who married this really sweet. Like the guy and he was like they got pregnant and she liked delivered the baby in ethiopia and he was so happy and like actually they were actually kind of cute but i just. I can't run the risk of feeling sad. I watch stuff that makes me sad. Yeah no. I don't think this would make you sad. I think it's really interesting is a really interesting concept on. It's like crazy that it's a show but it's also like they're not just like trying to make television. I really do think that the people who make these matches are invested in the matches like being because it's their legally binding marriages like literally deciding to people. Like if you want to get out you have to get a divorce right which is crazy. Yeah all right. So that's tv recap segment of the bachelorette on tonight right. Nothing else. No nothing else about now. Like last night i was like what am i gonna watch in alec this week at ribes up tuesday wednesday thursday just like hits you hard like salt lake city housewives the bachelorette southern charm used to be kardashians.

GSMC Baseball Podcast Episode 147: An Idea To Fix Free Agency (1-30-2019)

"Practically every night. Golden State media concepts baseball cats we cover everything majorly from spring treat soothe the World Series got your favorite club cover from New York to Boston to LA. This is the Golden State media concepts baseball podcast. Welcome. Everyone of the GMC baseball pod has brought to you by the GMC podcast network. I'm your host Jeff with these always Mark Souza accent show on hand. We're gonna talk about fritzy free agency. Mark has an idea that he's gonna say out, and we're gonna fix free agency. Major league baseball -posedly to how. Nevermind, Jeff can't fix anything. So I will do it. Have fun with show. Yeah. We'll talk about that. We'll talk about the latest on Harper Machado any other ideas that MLB can do to live in the off season. We'll talk about some recent acquisitions AJ Pollick. Greg, Holland, San Francisco giant signing pitcher, and we'll break down the hall of fame class. We just got done talking about this last autumn class. You still have an apologize to me about what you said something very to me. I say I haven't I can't fix anything. That's not true. It was a joke. Yeah. I still like an apology. Sorry, you're offended. Okay. That was an apology. I heard I'm sorry. So it works. All right. So we'll talk next off in class. Some new players that will be on the ballot for the first time. We'll talk about their chances of getting in on first bell. And also just getting in in general. I think that'd be a good discussion as we have. Let's see one two three four five six seven eight nine ten new players that will be on the Knicks valid so. Also, we'll talk about a player who next year will be final year on the ballot. Don't think he'll be in. But I'm wondering why that is. And then a lasting. We'll talk about is knowing air not have has a relative who is also in the Rockies organization. He actually might make their MLB Rostro talk about him later on so Jeff can you give us the latest on the Harper amateur watch. What what is the latest that? You have seen are the teams. I guess still in it. Is there any news or updates at the people should know regarding this whole, what do you call this a watch this? I honestly there is little to no action at all all the that you want here. The biggest news is supposedly or there is a picture by the yes by Harper's back company, even on the name of it. It's his backup. Many. He hit the his sponsorship. Okay. And I have no idea. Gotcha. I can look that up. But I don't think they even released and to be honest with you. Anyways, they showed harp. Bryce Harper theme bats with the Phillies color on them. That's it. Gotcha. So it's like the now what the speculation is that he signing with the Phillies, and that this company knows and they're getting his bath ready. Is that kind of what the speculation is now? Yes, a bad back companies. Call victis have you heard of him? No, well, they've made to it's on social media. There's two bats one that it's red and blue and then it's the powder blue. And then there's an all powder blue bat. So basically, there's their secondary colors, and it says like some Phillies stuff on it. I think it has Harper's name on it. You want to hear the kicker do the sources from the back company say the bats were made a week and a half ago as of January twenty eighth, and we're not made as a special or they were made just in case this happens. That is the biggest news coming from free agency right now. There are rumors of him signing in Philadelphia yesterday that were floating around on the on the interwebs. There was a tweet and it was by. Let's see there is a tweet showing a picture of what it looks like ESPN prepping to announce Harper to the Phillies like with Harper and the Phillies logo with the text Bryce Harper to the Phillies. That was verified as false also Vegas gambling steam, which is some random Twitter handle put out a confirmed report that Harper is agreed in we'll tell your may contract. With the Phillies source says deal was wrapped up pending medicals Vegas taken all Bryce Harper bits off the board that was also verifiably false. So. Will he go to the Phillies? I don't know. But apparently, that's the that's the rumor right now. And it sounds like I don't know if people are trying to get their name out there. You know, make some noise that way. But yes, we've seen that kind of. I don't know what do you what do you call this conspiracy talk heat up in the last twenty four hours. Is it even do you know that there's only no there's twelve days until spring training begins twelve days. Jeff things happened. The gentlemanly what about Machado? Is. There any news on Chattos other than we kind of know there's news on Harper. And that's everybody thinks he's going to the Phillies based on some, you know, stuff some quote, unquote information, I heard nothing from Chato side. It could be legit. There's a mystery bidder. Appear in the Padres. Maybe the ministry bitter out. It's very unknown at this poem. Yeah. We did hear that the that was kind of a silly report. Like, don't you think the Padres wanna silly? Because it said Padres won't rule out there intra like everybody's interested. Do you stuff like that? When you see like, oh this team didn't flat out deny that. They don't want this player. So they must have some interest. Right. Yeah. Just because you don't flat out deny that you're going to I don't know Red Lobster for lunch. Does it mean that you're actively trying to get people together go to Red Lobster for lunch? Right. Like excellent point. That's what those reports tell me. It's like are you is this reporter, I have I have a crush on her like celebrity, but you don't see me wanting like omitting like I want to date them. It's obvious. Like, if I told you if you asked me, what are you doing after the show, and I said, well, I need to go put gas in my car, and you're like war you're gonna go to the shell. And I said maybe wealth he didn't deny that he's going to show the guest and his car. There's a hundred other guests visit seventy six that's down the street from us. That's three dollars a gallon. Yeah. That's super cheap, by the way. So I think I have the solution to solve major league. Baseball's problem and yes, me, okay. Let's ask this question. I mean, you talk about this. How major league baseball has a problem with their free agency and their off-season because it's really boring. There's not a lot of action compared to the other major sports. It seems to take a step back. Do you think other people feel this way, or do you think were the richest because maybe we're so involved in sports, and in no more than just baseball that it's just our problem, or do you think that most baseball fans kind of feel like this one hundred percent? Well, so there's not enough action. It's like watching a base. I love watching baseball. Sometimes there's a lull didn't we talk about before that an idea we had was shortening the season. Like, not the time. The players have awful like only make free in a two week window or something like something. We're like you were fans would know that there had to be action within a certain time period. So they kind of gear I don't even give them three weeks. Kind of like how the NFL has. The draft which is really exciting for NFL fans. So like the has the drive to but it's not as doesn't have an answering the season. Like, it doesn't. I actually saw video of the draft. They have dugouts like imaginary dugouts for kids. Get drafted out of. I thought it was kind of cool. I thought it was funny. Okay. So. Maybe we've talked about that idea. But I have have an idea, Jeff. Have an idea ready for it. You gotta fall with me. Okay. You get a fall along with me. All right. Imagine. Imaginative Machado and Harper. Were approached by. I don't know MLB network ESPN. CBS? GMC podcast network. What's that? Some I got fired. Imagine for a minute that Machado and Harper were poached by one of these networks decided to have a program dedicated to meeting with these players with these two men in question sitting down talking to him about their futures. And then at the end of the program, they chose their destination. Have you heard of something like this before? Now, that's kinda unusual worst. You've never heard of a program where star athlete chose a team after I dunno, narrowing it down to a few and then receiving so much backlash for it. Then backs out. No not backs out. Do you? Remember, a similar program in different sport that happened like this. You. Remember, a athlete in any sport deciding his next destination free agent destination on a TV show dedicated to this. I have the decision. Yes. The decision and who is the ugly the Brown James Brown, James. I don't I think the Brown j little more poverty that Bryce Harper though, -solutely. No, no, disrespect marver ones that no one will argue that at all. I think it's long lines of just social sure sure. But if like, I'm not saying it has to be on ESPN like LeBron James decision was. But what about going to be network? What if they're like, hey, February the fourth the day after the Super Bowl or you know, what they should do. They should have done this the night before the Super Bowl Saturday night. That would have been perfect because you know, people are gearing up for the Super Bowl. They're already probably at home. I guess. Yeah. You have the decision by Harper immature. You could do it back to back. You could do it simultaneously feel like you should wait as after though. Okay. So maybe we disagree on the timing. But what do you think about the idea? I like the idea we could work out the details. But what do you think of would that live in baseball with that make you as a sports fan? Would you k- Harper's decisions tonight at seven PM watching it? But the thing is I would be excited, but with the majority of the fan base be excited. That's though, I think baseball fans would be into it. Right. Because wasn't like bronze one of the most viewed things it was very popular. I don't think it's going to be viewed it won't it won't. I'm not trying to. I'm not saying it will be now. I see what you're saying. I'm not even saying it will register the same sort of response because we all know that LeBron got us for us. We'll be killed for. Well, you know, what we are still alive, by the way, we later found out that there's a lot of money that LeBron generated from that that went to good causes. Right. So it's another chance for major league baseball to do some good light ICS K. We're going to give all this money to. The boys and girls cove America or to literally baseball leagues across the country. You know what I mean? Right. It gives them a chance it gets major league baseball chance to promote their star. It gives them a chance to be the good guy be the organization, you know, do something heartwarming give back to the community, but should Machado and harbor have different shows. See it does bring up an interesting concept because when we're Braun did it was just LeBron but much. Exactly now, we're talking about two guys. But if you're if you're running ESPN, they say, okay, we're doing this decision thing we can do to shows one much auto one Harper on separate prime time slots or we have on both on the same primetime slot sitting extra other. What are you gonna do? Yeah. Vowed be interesting. It also made interesting make the choice. It would also be interesting if they chose the same team. Oh, my those fans if hypes the other fans we can eat. Phillies. If you're the Phillies and the in Harvard picked up the Phillies hat and the Machado picked up the Phillies, but like it would be cool because. Okay. So here's the thing about LeBron. You remember the decision, right? At least. I remember remember I like a lot of. Okay. I just went. Okay. But you knew we knew going into it. The he narrowed it down to three teams like we knew what was the third team. It was the heat. It was the Cavaliers, and it was the was it the Knicks. I was it was there was a third team because there's three or a distant third. If now that we look at it. Yes. But there were three destinations. Okay. I don't remember the third to be on regardless that we knew it was down at three. The problem is for Herber Machado. We hear that. There's like fifteen teams that are in on each. Right. That's all teams are in. But wouldn't it be cool? Wouldn't it be cool? If maybe at the beginning of the show, they started with ten and they dislike eliminated them like process of limitation like a bracket like. The bachelor. Okay. It's like, yes. Like this on board with this hat gets a rose, you know, and like these don't they pick a hat to stay on the table or get thrown away in a trash can boom money. You're welcome ESPN. And then like they can make some silly remark like wake if it make up pun about the team. Let's say if Saint Louis cardinals is one of the hats, and there and heartbreak knocks it into the trash is like, no, nightlife, not interested, you know, not enough money. Oh while. Yeah. Offer was too low. Goodbye, you know, that would be a real. That's also being a jerk like huge jerk in that sense. Right. It would bring great television home. I god. It'd be great. It's not gonna happen bachelor s. That's why I'm so sad right now. I know it's never gonna happen. That's true. I'm sorry. It's never go. Unless we buy out ESPN run our own shows and pay Harper Machado tons of money to do this. Well, that's my idea. What do you think? But the thing is that's like and then after that what is left for the off season. Well, you know, what what will be left of the offseason after these two guys sign now, I feel like it's been it's been dragging along. And I don't know how we think they're intentionally dragging along. They honestly not know where they wanna go. I honestly think they're they have no incident like for for them. What would be their reasoning for picking right now or already picked their reasoning be they have they are got offered a contract, they just couldn't refuse right? But if if if some team offers them, let's say three hundred million the number. I already know that I have an offer on the table. I don't have to jump on it. It's not going to go away. You know what I would do? Honestly, I don't know if you're allowed to legally, but I would say like this team offer me a lot of money better posted online and see if anyone could offer me more. Make your own auction almost like you can tell other teams how much they're offering. They can try to extend that make them more worth more. But I don't know if that's legal or not. Yeah. I don't know about that. It's interesting them in. All right. Let's predict when will Machado and Harper sign twelve days before suspending the day before spring training. JD Martinez didn't sign until spring training last year the day before I'm going to table for or they're naming participants Frene training. Do it afterwards. It's going to be in the middle of training. It's almost too. Well, basically is February we have seen more as this weekend. That's that was signals in my head that it's February. You know what? I mean. That's always the first weekend. So always for a little bit though. It's been like that for at least ten years. Alright. Yeah. I pretty short time in all things considered. Right. But that's just like the marker in my head. Some people might say Valentine's Day, some people might say a president's birthday. I don't know for me. It's first week. A February is always Super Bowl like when I look at a calendar. And I'm planning out my year. I we fit where I know shouldn't calendars just say that Super Bowl on the day. Yeah. Yeah. On the national holidays called off day work. It's a national holiday. It is the most called up day work in the United States, which is can't express enough. It's a national holiday sheds base. It is based in it. You know, it is it should be. The World Series is one game. Maybe get as popular as it have it in like do it Super Bowl ask. But. It's it's it's the biggest viewed sporting event in the world. Except until Machado Harper decision. If that even happens, maybe they do it at halftime super maybe they decided to take a break from baseball for a year halftime at the Super Bowl. Intendant removed five you put him down in the middle in the middle of the field. Or does major league baseball have commercial during Super Bowl of the decision money. That would cost to get a commercial do it'd be how many, you know, why the that's so much money, those advertisers too much money because so many damn people are watching right true. I mean, that's that's what it is. I mean, this is life. Wanting to say, hey on ESPN two we're going to show the decision. Instead of paying all that money. Just to get a commercial. Yeah. Anyways. What do you say we go to break the break? We'll talk about is a few signings in baseball. They actually have happened including the dodgers acquiring outfielder. The San Francisco Giants acquiring a starting pitcher the debunks also making a splash and then later on in the show. We'll discuss the hall of fame class of next year. Like, we mentioned previously. We have some we have ten new players that will have their first chance to make the hall of fame. Probably not too many.

Welcome back. Everyone of the GMC baseball podcasts. Just finished talking about Machado and Harper still not signing with anyone now onto people that have actually gone signs who have gotten sign Mark AJ Pollock's with dodgers. Dodgers spending money there. It's not before. Well, you know, they may or may not land Harper. We know that they're interested. But I don't think they're landing hopper to be honest with you. But AJ Pollick. Gives them a little bit of flexibility not about signing for team that just traded plea in camp AJ Paul inside into the into the starting lineup. I think we talked about this. But do you agree with weeks? The trade do think it was the right move in the long run. Yes, I get it. Because he's up there in age. But we still pretty young plea is young. But he's. He's not as even keeled is. I would prefer for my baseball team. Just because you know, his ups and downs. Okay. We all their well documented, right? Like, we know what do you think? Did you like them move? Usually he was like the face of the him in clear shell where like the two faces of the franchise. That's why I was little shot by it. And like like a good thing though. Like did the dodgers really want to be the face of their franchise. I thought he I thought he was thought he was doing just fine and even proving and his game, and they're like Seeger Turner Delon injure just have a gut feeling that might regret this long run. Maybe I feel bad for him because he has go to Cincinnati for very bad, read steam and. Yes, live in Cincinnati comparatively. We shouldn't we shouldn't make fun of we shouldn't mock cities that might be listening. We love you Cincinnati. It's just what would you? Where'd you rather? If I mean, maybe some people prefer Cincinnati over Los Angeles. How I would prefer to live in Nashville, Tennessee. Well, that's won't be. He'll be with Cincinnati. I think that's where I'm living in like a year from now to be honest with you, really. Yeah. Long story. Thank you. It is a booming place idea somebody friend of mine who recently moved there about six months ago. Yeah. No, my brother lives down there. People go there for vacation. Oh, it's amazing new voucher. Parties there Lorette? Parties is the main one. For the bachelorette parties. No, I've been there to visit my brother and my beautiful niece, and my my sister-in-law and we walked downtown around in every even during the day, there's girls in the those big trucks in the back with the bright with whether we're in the Vale or whatever it's called. Gotcha. And they're all going. And it's like, that's all you hear. So how was your time? That's that's the only thing they speak apparently. Yeah. I see what you're saying. So invited one though, I don't know why. You think national do they ever team? Triple eight Nashville sounds triple which I love that name, by the way for the as it is. Right believe so the as used to have the Sacramento river cats. But now that's the giants. If I'm Nashville AAA one, I will make sure okay. So AJ Pollock signs of four year contract with the fifth year option could be around sixty million there, ironically, their oddly in the Pacific coast league, but they're in the east. Their affiliates are the Rangers Rangers. Okay. Though, the recent they were the as this year. But now as from from two thousand nineteen they are now the Rangers affiliate. Interesting. So. AJ pollock. He's a right handed bat. The dodgers. The last few years. I think they've been a little bit more lefthanded heavy now, I know Kemp employees or right handed hitters, but AJ Pollick. Does I guess supplant some of that right handed hitting? He could be an everyday fielder for them. What what's your opinion? Do. You think is a good player. Oh, I think he has a lot of potential. He's a great player. No question about it. He can bring to the table. But I think there's still work to be done. They just around him just the team in general. I don't think he's like that kind of knockout like we won the offseason type guy. I think he just a good quality player that could bring a lot to the table. Yeah. Yeah. So. Yeah. Yeah. You're looking at a guy is consistent player. He definitely makes good contact on the ball to. And I think that's important because the dodgers jock Peterson in jock Peterson. He doesn't make enough contact for me. What do you think about that? Like, he's a good player. Swinging a missed no pun intended. Yeah. Yeah. I get it gets about on the ball little bit more. Yeah. Okay. Actually, looking at a Phileas still you wanna hear the greatest affiliate name I've ever seen. They are the Marlins is some mud hens or something the Norling baby cakes. What about the Albuquerque isotopes that's a triple or double think, it's triple? I will look I think it's I think it's the dodgers AAA there's an El Paso chihuahuas as good. That's a good one. I'll Kirke isotopes is solid. I also love the minor league jerseys. Sometimes they go all out for those like, David. Yeah. I love that. But no, no, there's some people that just do like internals nine or something like that. And they haven't injured hurtle jerseys and stuff like that. Which I think is super cool. There's the monk Gumri biscuits AA affiliate to the raise. Are they sponsored by Papa I hope so. Or red lobsters got cheddar babies skits. Now that's twice. I've said Red Lobster in this podcast. Not good people are going to raising their eyebrows. Or we might get a Red Lobster sponsor. Yeah. Hopefully, there's a there's a team called the north west Arkansas neutrals. What? Yeah. North west Arkansas neutrals. Yeah. That's say that three times into view any NWEA. You said the mud hens that was a team Toledo mud hens. Get they are AAA team. Oh, we gotta keep we got. Let's see. Albuquerque guess too. So. They're all Bill. I'll find Albuquerque I leave there in the triple because I believe they play against the river cats. Almost positive. Aces or in the two aces are in the league. There's also the advocacy. Is there the Colorado Rockies? Okay. So the Rockies affiliate my bad. I said the dodgers. So I think the Reno aces are the dodgers. You wanna hear the daughters? Hilarious one. Yeah. The Oklahoma City dodgers is that double or triple interesting. I hate when they just use the same name who's Reno? Then we aces. Arizona Arizona there. Isn't there Las Vegas fifty one steamers? I no longer a team there used to be. I love that name they headed alien mascot or as the logo. I love that minor league. Baseball is great when it comes at teams names. Oh, yeah. Okay. Okay. Hold on. Hold on all them. A single advance roster for the Mariners the Modesto nuts. That's my team team. I'm sorry. That is amazing Assan Manal. Kate has you know, the comedian has some knowledge from Davis, California. He has a whole spiel about the missed, and that's how we'll go is testicles. Yes, actually. Yes. Oh my God. I gotta look up. This all the nuts. Can I tell you? I have a story for you. That was voted by the by the community. I love you Modesto. They had like four team names. I can't remember them. All but it was. Okay. So the Modesto used to be the the used to be the affiliate of the Oakland A's. That's why it was the Modesto as forever guy, forever and ever. I remember going as a kid. I watched McGill too hot to play there. I watched AJ Hinch play their Tim Hudson play there amongst others, but then they're affiliate their affiliation. Ran now. Colorado Rockies came in swoop toy true. It's also played there when the switch came over, and they obviously need to change the name because it can't be the Modesto as and be the Rockies affiliate. So they asked and they there was like a bunch of agriculture names. It was like I think like there's about like, you know, because nuts like almonds almonds is a got it almonds is a big crop down in area. So. I actually didn't mean what we. Yeah. Yeah. I don't remember all the team names. But the people voted there's four choices, and it was voted upon and that's one I love you guys so much. Thank you just made. My day minister nuts, man, I looked up the liberal. But I I need to read the Tennessee smokies. I think that was because of the bear. Yes. Stop force. Fires is it or is it because of barbecue. Maybe Hartford yard goats the yard goats, another Rockies affiliate the AA. What does that mask? Look like, I that's a great question. I got something about the medicinal. That's real quick. They have three mascots L the is almond or a goat. It's the it's the it's the North Carolina. Tar heel looking go with a baseball bat in its mouth interesting. So the three mass guys L the almond Wally the walnut and Shelley the statue Denver change, never change. Minor league teams. Oh my God. There's a Jacksonville jumbo shrimp team, the JIMBO shrimps and named after food that just a food. I'm hungry. Now. I'm really hungry too. Oh, okay. I might have found the, but maybe there's sponsor hold the phone the Birmingham rumble ponies Birmingham. Tin burr. Berm Hinton Binghamton. I can't pronounce their Binghamton. Maybe it's the a AA met of being him. Tune Binghamton rumble what rumble ponies ponies ponies as in the the Hort like a horse. Yeah. Rumble ponies, though. What's the difference between a rumble pony regard pony? One wants to fight. You one's a wrestler. Could we honestly there's so many different names when it comes to wrestler names that I would not surprise me. Well, there's a okay aren't Armadillo sawed poodles. The Saad poodles. Where are you thinking of these days people? This is the same team that's affiliated like the Padres, the El Paso chihuahuas. And then this okay. You wanna hear the most lazy won the cardinals AAA affiliate is the redbirds? That's not even trying to cardinal is. I know, but it's trying to be different though. Yeah. All of their team names, all their AA single-a in AAA teams are all just CARNOT redbirds. That's that's disappointing. Yeah. Anyways, we should probably go. I'm so happy right now, you have no idea we should go to break when we come back. We'll talk about next year's hall of fame class. Again. We'll talk about the new the new players that will be up for can. I stop real quick down the Modesto nuts logo. He's right. It. Does look kind of Vini. That's go with that word. Sure. All right.

We just finished having a little discussion about the greatest minor league teams. I've ever heard in teams in journal that I've ever heard. So what's next on the gen Xers off him class? Yeah. So we're going to start off with the person who has in my opinion, the best chance of being. Of this person is the best chance of being the next Mariana Rivera. I don't think it'll happen necessarily. But it does need to be talked about. Now, it's Derrick jeeter Derrick jeeter. He's really the only lock I would say of all these would be on next year's about these are the players upcoming how he's doing how he's doing with the Marlins. I wouldn't be surprised that they let him out or leave him off because. Yeah. So. All these players. I'm not saying they will be on the ballot. I'm not even saying they'll be voted into the fame. But these are the players that will now be eligible who will be in consideration. Derek Jeter is he eighth first ballot. One hundred percent vote getter? I would say he's going to be at least ninety five percent. You think? So. Yeah, I can see some people say no, do you think is to set tad overrated. I would I would I would say like his disticts don't match up to legacy. But it's more the legacy than the statistics. Sometimes. And the moments he has he has thirty four hundred hits nineteen hundred runs scored five World Series wins. And he's a fourteen thirty four hundred hits. Yeah. Thirty four sixty five ten he get this three thousand hits at the end of his career. I don't know at the last season. He's got thirty three thousand four hundred sixty five okay. It was the before he retired. All right. So chances of him making the hall of Famer definitely one hundred percent chances of him making it on the first try. I would say hundred percent as well really is a slam dunk. He's getting in he's. Yeah. I'm Arianna Rivera. But I'm not saying is going to be unanimous. Then he then he won't be right away. You just have to eighty five percents eighty five. Okay. So you think he'll get over eighty five but not one hundred percents. I would say ninety five. Gotcha. Okay. That's a that's a good guess that works for me. I think that he will be for spell it. How about cliff Lee? Phillies pitcher, I remember him two thousand eight AL Cy Young award to fifty five postseason ERA. That's. Unless he gets in the hall of fame, but on the I tried. Okay. So eventually, okay. How about? Bobby abreo? I don't four hundred stolen bases. I. Yep. What has he? That's a tough one. I mean, I love Bobby. He's been a great player throughout his career, but hall of fame level with that strict committee that votes in and out in might be a little more difficult for him. I'm gonna say is third or fourth try because he'll get in adventure -ly. Bam not saying first ballot. Looking at his numbers here. His average. She went here's one hundred sixty two game average -ture. He averaged nineteen home runs this season ninety one RBI's twenty seven stolen bases. Ninety nine walks. Struck out one hundred twenty three times. Let's see is betting average. Two ninety one. Okay. Under three hundred get hurt lugging four seventy five his eight seventy s pretty good. He does have a lot of stolen bases. Well, simply close I'll say he'll get him. But not for a strike still. I still stand by that. How about Jason geom- b? Who? He's only eligible now or one hundred. Yeah, he retired efficient two thousand fourteen four hundred forty homers five time all star. That is an incredibly tough one. I'm going to say yes, not first ballot. No. I don't think any of these guys are going to be first. Bella, right jeeter. Yeah. I think Johnny will get in but not first ballot. These are geom- Giambi's one hundred sixty two game average over the course of his nineteen twenty the website to as of who's doing these baseball reference. So this is all fischel. Thirty two homers and one hundred three guys what he average every year. He averaged ninety eight walks one hundred thirteen strikeouts. He had a two seventy seven average. But he's slugged five sixteen his opium nine sixteen. So definitely more of a power hitter than Bobby Abreu. Walked about the same ounce. He struck out pretty good. All right. You ready for the next one hit me? John beckett. Oh, that's actually Challe. And I feel like this is just very tough for you every single one. Well, they're all good. That's the thing. But are they hall of fame? Good. That's the question. That is what I'm considering here. Beca had a thirteen year career one hundred thirty eight wins one hundred six losses. Three eighty eighty or a once in World Series too wasn't. He the lead wasn't eating the pitcher for the Marlins when they won the World Series against the Yankees. I'm going to say he gets in second time. He played for the dodgers Boston. Of course, the Marlins. He won two World Series three times all star in a World Series. MVP? It's pretty good, man. He gets in. Usually a World Series MVP two time World Series winner. Three time. Alster also is number number. Time all star. That's gonna hurt earning. Yes. But I'm not I don't think he'll get on the first try, but he will get in like, the others. I think the next person that I'm about to tell you is the most interesting person on this list. I think we're going to we're going to get a wide range of opinions on him. Eric charges. It sounds like you have some thoughts on him. Two thousand fourteen. He let's see his one hundred sixty two game average twenty six homers ninety RBI's betting ever to sixty eight slowing four seventy five his eighteen now. He played mainly for the as right? He did. But here's the thing. He has six gold glows. So out of his numbers. You can't just look at him from an offensive point of view. He was defence guide. He was a silver SOGA word winter once in six time gold glove winner. But that's basically it that's basically his career. I'm not saying he gets in. It's going to be extremely difficult for him to get in. I just say that because I wonder how much they're going to value his defensive prowess. I think it's six go glove in over ten year career. I'm gonna say now. How about? Adam done. This one's interesting. Power hitter to till he dies. I saw him one time I'm going to tell you a an antidote right here, personal antidote. This dude in San Francisco. Hit a baseball that I've I've never seen. Somebody hit a ball further or harder in my entire life. He hit into McCovey cove. In right field into the water splash. Here's some of the longest home runs in history. And I was sitting on the wall. I was sitting on the right field wall. You know, the big wall go that thing went way over like it went way over the foul pole. It was so I remember looking up Jeff looking literally up and watching it sail over my head. And then when my net couldn't go backwards any further I turned around and the ball was still traveling. And I saw it hit the water. And I was like, are you kidding me? I had never seen it ball hit. You were impressed. Oh, yeah. In fact, I remember the buzz that it created when he hit like I remember like after it hit the water like everyone to spend like, whoa. 'cause no one was cheering because he's on the other team. But it was like. Like, did you see that? Yeah. Well, that wasn't saying Adam Dunn, though, let's go back to him was when we were just time all star. I mean, let's go back to his numbers to time all star. A man who strict out about about two hundred times a year. He went over two hundred just once, but he was very close number of times as average is one hundred ninety three he hands up one ninety three batting average his average amount of strikeouts. Oh. He was definitely in the one seventies. One eighty one nineties a bunch of times strikeouts. That guy did hit four hundred sixty two home runs eleven hundred sixty RBI's. Heck she stole six sixty three bases. Which is weird. Think about he walked to pitch. So as betting to thirty seven his slugging four ninety. What do you say about Adam Dunn? He's purely a power hitter not a contact hitter. Not a defensive player. I mean, you're literally going off a pure power numbers. If you put him in. Is under sixty two game. Average again, thirty seven homers ninety five twenty seven doubles and triple. What do you say? No. Noggin not getting. How about Rafael for call? Not a for. It's about either. Getting in though, that's I would say in one of his final tries. He might Sweden. Edgar martinez. Type he was rookie of the year World Series three time all star. The low all star numbers. What's concerning me? Only three times. I'll say he gets like six seven th right? I don't know if you get in does. I'll say if he gets it. It's like an Martinez thing. Possibly all. Right. We got a couple more here. Paul conoco. Six time all star four hundred forty homers. He has four hundred homers. He's getting in the not this year. Batum din it or four hundred two but. Touche? But I have a feeling that this is just I don't just different whole his his work ethic was very lacklustre. He never ran to the basis usually. Okay. He usually hardly ever ran in general. I got one more for you. Okay. Alphonso soriano. He's getting seven time all star four hundred twelve homers. He had a forty forty season. He's getting one hundred percent on him sent first ballot. Not first ballot. But he will get in. Don't you agree? He'll get in here. He'll get in. I think it's secondary. He'll get in. I think eighty five percent a second. Dr. He ever GE thirty four hundred ninety five RBI's tastic season, forty one walks year. Let's see stolen bases. He's twenty four season. That's impressive. Yeah. He like he's like I said he had a forty forty season. Yeah. And how many of the have very four time, silver slugger, all all-star VP seven-time alster. Yeah. He's getting in. Agree with that so next. So this next year is Larry Walker's final year on the ballot. I feel like he's a hall of Famer. Maybe that's just an a stall je talking, but I feel like he was a all fame cower player. You know, if it's one of those things that gets in Dahbi cool. But if he doesn't it understandable, you know, it goes both ways so happens happens. It's not gonna lead outrage or anything. It's going to be like if we're however it happens he gets into nod thirty four percent this year. Well, you're not gonna get in the basement. Okay. That's fine. They will they won't take it to heart or anything. Josh Flint is might be the Rockies best third base replacement behind knowing Aaron auto. Fun fact for you Jeff Josh fantasy is the cousin of Nola near not oh he was under after player from zuri Baptist. He was a Pacific coast league MVP last year. He's just climbed into his way into the minor leagues. And he may make the roster for the Rockies the season. How cool of a story is that that is very cool story, especially undrafted it, and no one has an uncertain future at the Rockies. He's looking for a new contract might be on his way out. How interesting would it be? He ends up replacing Nolan auto his cousin. It'd be like it'd be funny like in that oil ago funny. That is you're you're taking the job your cousin like that kind of feeling and also it's one of those. It's the fact of the matter is coming on drafted is such a challenge in baseball. Probably the hardest challenge of any sport. When you're trying to go up into the pros. And if he's done it. He's damn well learned it by agree with it says something about. His desire being player that was under. We're talking about major league baseball when you're undrafted. That means how many rounds are there in the draft want. There's a ton or so when you go undrafted in baseball like. That means a lot of players got picked over you sound like football or like, basketball even basketball. There's like six round. Yeah. Basketball, sixty football. There's. One hundred people get drafted fifty five fifty something like that. But baseball, you're talking about hundreds thousands, right? Yeah. Twenty-five if there's twenty five rounds, and there's thirty some odd team. I will look up the actual numbers. To lot says something about his determination. Yeah. Absolutely. And he's still going up. I mean, he was a. Last year. You could say what you want about that? But he's still young players twenty five years old. He's going he's going in the right direction. Anyways. Is that our show? I think that's our show. Yeah. Let me let me let me just look at this area. Economic impact, blah, blah, blah. What are you looking up again? The draft in what you. Yeah. There's also contemporary pictures. Let's see if I can find this year. Forty rounds. Oh, you got it. Why wasn't showing me? Uh-huh. It's a lot that is a ton. First round. There was forty three I run selections in total interesting. There's over twelve hundred thousand one that last year in two thousand eighteen there was one thousand two hundred and fourteen players selected in forty rounds. Interesting. All right. Well.

Espn has announced that they are looking for a new Monday night. Football broadcast team and Julie de Deadspin has posed an interesting question cat. Should they consider putting a woman in the Monday night? Football Booth dicara correctly points out that forty seven percent of NFL fans are women and there appear to be several qualified candidates. If they want to go this way she mentions meantime. Suzy Kolber Pam Oliver Beth. Mohan's and Lisa Saulters as possible options. No woman has ever been hired as an NFL game analyst for regular season Games but Meena did do rams preseason games last year she did Beth. Moans has done. Nfl play-by-play would this be a good idea? Or would it be seen as a stunt no I while first of all? I think it'd be a great idea. I think that there are plenty of women who are very qualified. I think Meena in particular when I talked to me about football I can tell you this. She knows way more about it than I do. She knows and I watched all those Ram game she did. I know you were at a couple of think. But she was great she she was great. The answer I think to my question is it's both. It would be a good idea and it would be seen as a stunt. But that's always how steph seen it depends how it executes if people would they would take some blowback if they did it but who cares if you get the right person in there. And she's good. Let her rip man come on. Let's go yeah I mean. I think it'd be fun. I think Jess Mendoza has been great to him baseball. I don't know why you couldn't have a woman doing football on Monday night. Football the show. I mean the show. Let's be honest has There's been much criticism that it's lost some of shine into bring back some attention to create some some buzz. I think would be positive for the show itself for the game for the Monday night. Football in general so yeah. I think it'd be great. My favorite in that group would be mean. I think she'd be fantastic and I think she would do it. I think she would take on the challenge so now that she did the rams games last year and she did good. We had Andrew on right after that. We've been on since she did that. And both of them said it. She really enjoyed it and did really well at it so that the president has been said. I think it would be and you said it Monday night. Football last two years is people do is rip it anyway. Why not try somebody like that? Yeah I mean go ahead do something with Sambas bring and by the way menas really smart bring some intellect to it bring. I mean I would. I would be in favor of the old fashioned version. Which is straight man the play by play guy the funny guy. Whoever that happens to be and then some intellect and in that case so you're describing his Frank Gifford straight man Don Meredith Clown Howard cosell intellect exactly. That's a really interesting in. That's known as the best Monday night. Football Team of all time. Yup and I've never given up on the fact that it could be. It could be recreated punch fast track. Cheyenne Frontier Days was cancelled. Wednesday because of the coronavirus pandemic marking the first time. The event billed as the world's largest outdoor Rodeo has been called off in a hundred and twenty four year history. Vici- officials announced. The decision event organizers decided to the risk of spreading the virus was too great for more than one hundred and forty thousand people who visit the city for frontier days. Now it's carried on through both world wars and the Great Depression Western Heritage Festival of Rodeo. Music Concerts Carnival rides. Pariah parades downtown pancake. Breakfasts that feed thousands of people at a time bars all over the place typically standing room only so some questions first of all does it make sense given the fact that this is a gigantic public shoulder to shoulder event. Does it make sense to cancel it for this year? Yes whenever you're asking whether or not they should cancel something. You should always think these four words size of the crowd gap. That's why they're saying. Nba would know fans got. That's why they're saying for now. No concerts you could probably handle worst-case scenario outbreak in a small group. But a would you say one hundred forty thousand people over the place. You can't do it. Yeah can't do it second. Our guys in Rodeo consider do you consider them to be athletes. Yes I was when I was working Beaumont Texas my first couple of weeks there. They said Hey. We need you to be in a celebrity bull riding competition. And I didn't know I was there. A brand new said yes. Sure what the hell and I go down there and I actually had to ride a bull and I got bucked. I lasted four seconds. I want it. I was the leading celebrity Mace. I was sore for a week and at the time I was like twenty five. Yeah those guys are getting sacked by bull. Rodeo is absolutely a sport. Do you agree. Yeah I did it in Santa when I first came out to hundred ninety and I it was the the longest four seconds of that bulls life. I know there's no question that that you've got to be an athlete to roll tabs or whatever. It is the happened to be doing. Here's a question though. Ringling brothers had to shut down the circus because of treatment of animals. What's the difference between a circus and a Rodeo good? The the night I rode road the bull the way they were explained to me. Was they tie a rope? Tightly around the bull's testicles to drive it crazy and that's what and then you you get on top of the bull and then after the Bull Bucks You. They untie the rope. So how is that not cruel? Yeah how did not all all over that they probably are but there are other things in Rodeo like the calf roping disaster permanently hurt the cavs or is that just like playing with your dog. Never Hog tie your dog right but those calves are bigger than a dog. Yeah and maybe getting tied up like it sounds to me like if you're gonNA make it if you're going to make a case. That rodeo has no animal cruelty. It's going to be a pretty hard case. We really tough. Yeah going to be really tough. All right futch tack all right. May Sev- room minor league. Baseball stadiums across America are now offering curbside pickup of their favorite concession items. Some teams include sweet bonuses in their plans that Clinton lumber kings and Mississippi offered a free bobble head with orders over twenty five bucks. If you order a meal kit from the Sacramento River. Cats you get a free bottle of wine with restrictions easing in some states. A few teams are able to offer in stadium. Dining the pensacola blue. Wa Who's Waterfront? Stadium is open seven days a week for dinner including a Sunday brunch. The Cedar Rapids Kernels Open Their Ballpark to fans on Wednesday. To eat lunch on the concourse. So here's a question. What's your favorite all time concession item at a baseball game? If you could only get one thing the next time you go to a game what are you going with man? I love those Nachos just loved that that drippy I. I don't even know if that's cheese. They put on them. And then the the the the spicy the Jalapenos a little bit of sour cream. I Love I lost stadium nachos Lindsey Baseball's your favorite sport. What is your all Time Favorite Baseball Stadium? Concession Item Maya's also nachos but if I have to pick a different one than mace. I'M GONNA go with snow cones slash slush she's slash. Italian is not something on a good hot day find. What are you going with you guys ever had a? It's it's Oh yeah ice cream sandwich. Well see that's my answer was going to be in Mesa and surprise. This wasn't yours my into it's going to be a Cooler Koo Koo Koo now. Charles is a coup the same as what did you watch the? It's it's is now. A cooler coup is to cookies with ice cream in the middle. Yeah Yeah it's dipped in chocolate and oatmeal cookie to oatmeal cookies. Did yeah that's the same thing as a cooler cou. They are very similar cooler. Coups tend to be an official dodger stadium ice cream sandwich but Mason Kulik who is the mini mart and not grabbing it? Okay so a cooler Kulikov Mesa's chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream in the middle right and aren't they in? The whole thing is dipped in chocolate right. So that's what keeps it. All held together also helmet. Sundays highly underrated the miniature helmet Hot Fudge. Sundae and at some ballparks. You can get a Banana. Split inside of a mini helmet which is just gluttonous. But it is excellent at dodger stadium. I know a lot of people dodger dogs but I will walk from one. End To the stadium to to the other to get a grilled dodger dog rather than a boil dodger dog. I think the grilled dogs are much all the girl. Docs are way better. I will not eat a boiled hotdogs and well but you know the guy that selling hot dogs. That's walking up and down the aisles. Those are always the ones so. You're wondering really good. When you gotta get your ass out of your seat and go to the grilled stay. I didn't realize that. So the the concessionaires are because you can boil them quicker and so those guys are just going back to the thing and getting them in in in. It's an accident in public service announcement. Go find a grill. Go find all right More faster coming up next for you got a question lives. He's got a question seventeen. Espn rolling up with fasttrack and thought. It's you fast. Check all right last week. Mark The twentieth anniversary of the Marshall. Mathers album to celebrate eminem participated in a virtual listening party where he answered a wide variety of questions from fans including who he wants to collaborate with hasn't ever yet. He said Andre. Three thousand of outkast to his favorite Batman. He said Christian Bale and I one point during the chat someone inquired about his favorite breakfast. Cereal which replied Raisin Bran which I think is one of groceries on the market. I don't need raisins and my cereal. Please don't know how anyone any raisins in anything so with that in mind guys. Give me your top three breakfast series of all time. Okay I'll I'll go number three on the power rankings. Cocoa Pebbles Love them and also love the chocolate milk. That's left after you That sounds good number two peanut butter. Cap'n crunch I love Syria with peanut butter in it And it's Cap'n by the way. Cap apostrophe end and number one. And I think it's indisputable cinnamon toast crunch minor similar but not identical number. Three frosted flakes highly underrated. One good one number two Mesa creation of years but for a lot of the same reasons cocoa pebbles were too small for me. I like cocoa puffs Okocha Ponte who who for cocoa puffs for the same reason. You did you drink the milk when you were done eating. And THE ONLY SERIAL. Eat Now as an adult. I don't need a lot of cereal but if I buy cereal in twenty twenty it's only honey. Nut cheerios nothing else goes but honey. Nut cheerios Lindsey. How `bout you those are good for your heart too by the way excellent. I'll go on for dinner. Number three is going to be French. Toast crunch cousin to cinnamon toast crunch brunch. Yeah Yep they're delicious. Our Special K red berries is a close second to my number one which is also for an cinnamon toast. Crunch just like you mace. Is it cinnamon toast crunch though like just ridiculously sugary or yes. That's the beauty of it. For Twenty years I no particular order. I got an honorable mention. A nut cheerios. Since you do it out there one apple. Jacks to frosted mini wheats in three cinnamon toast. Crunch boy we all had. Did we all have cinnamon toast? Yeah my dad used to have a saying when he would seem eating cereal in the morning when I was kid and it just stuck in my head now. Long after he's gone let me guess. Eating the cardboard box would be healthier. You'd be better off eating the box that everybody's parents say that nine. Just remember you telling that story before. Okay Got Oh. How long have you worked her? Lindsey all stories get recycled. How long have you? How long have you been working with the? I don't know it's been long enough to be reciting stories about cereal. Box lessons could be. Apparently it is a fairly as our stories of already started recycling. I don't think even been here a year Lindsay ten. You've never heard the story. Yeah you have to pretend like you've never heard that before. Okay rewind. What did your dad say John? Please futch fast fast-track Lindsay okay guys back. In June of twenty ten then Detroit Tigers Pitcher Armando Galarraga through. What he thought was a perfect game. I remember this oh I remember it too. I remember I was actually running the board that night for the Indians Post game show and it was against the Empire Jim Joyce Armando Galarraga retired twenty-seven straight Cleveland Indians batters but the last one was riddled with controversy and here is the final call. Six twenty. Six. Down here comes number twenty seven. It's Jason Donald. Anna crowded better than seventeen thousand to its feet round. Ball right side Cabrera. We'll cut it off guitars. Say He is safe at first base comes Jim Jim. Joyce City was safety. First call was from Fox Sports Detroit. The twenty-seven fatter was indeed an incorrect safe call by the first base umpire. Jim Joyce he cut Colorado's bid for perfection just short and of course back in two thousand eight or two thousand and ten. I'm sorry when this happened. In Syria plate was only using. Mlb for the sole purpose of homerun calls so the play was not eligible to be reviewed after the game. I'm Jim Joyce was asked if he thought he got the call correct. No I get the call correct. I kicked head positioning on it. I just missed the damn call. I missed it. I missed it from here of the wall at that particular time. I thought he'd beat the play and now that I'm standing here and I've seen it on the replay. I missed it. I missed it all right so here. We are in twenty twenty ten years later to former tires pitchers asking the league to overturn that SAFCOL. So his game can officially be considered perfect in the record. Books Jim joys even gave his approval to overturn the call telling the athletic in this case I see absolutely zero arm in changing the call. The only fallout would be having to add Galarraga to the list of pitchers to have thrown a perfect game. There's officially twenty three Major League Baseball. Make the list twenty four or mono threw a perfect game. We all saw it. Make it official. Do you think should change the record? Books to give Gallaraga a perfect game. You can't you can't I mean you. You explained it really well but you can't Mace. A PERFECT GAME. Means everything has to go perfectly. You could get a bad hop. You could get a bad call. We know that Jim. Joyce blew the call but you would open a can of worms that you'd never be able to close. I don't think you can do it. Nice you agree. You know you kind of talked me out of it. I was going to go. Yes it should be changed until you said everything has to go perfect. You have to account for a bad hop a bad call. Yeah I don't think you can change into a perfect game now because Lindsey field. If you do that you have to go back and look at every game ever and say you know you go back and look at one of Sandy Colfax game no hitters Nolan Ryan no hitters. Kovacs out a perfect game and you say you know they blatantly. Miss this call. They called strike three in this and it was in the dirt. Any rational person knows this was a ball. Do we go back and change that now. So I get that argument and I agree that like okay. Where do you draw the line? But in this particular case it was the last out of the game so the outcome was that that was it like you know what I mean. There is no other. Oh well if it was in the sixth inning it that was a feel like in this particular situation. The perfect game is the perfect game and the game should have ended right then and there whereas there's other calls you could go back and argue but then what would happened with the next pitch and the next inning and the next hitter and so on and so forth last out. Yeah it's a unique set of circumstances. So Lindsey are you saying you would make it the twenty four th perfect game in Major League baseball history so I personally would not especially because it was against the Indians. I remember watching it and I remember this big argument that night. That ensued hallmark. Callers calling into the show saying you know there was so many people saying like it's all about the purity of the game and that's why is baseball and there's the human element to it and obviously now being twenty twenty with the fact that we have the replay rules and everything and you could go back and check it like that doesn't change the fact that it didn't exist ten years ago 'cause then you could take any of the current rules an and retro actively move them back to any of the other place so? I think they should leave it the same. So there's an umpire named done deck injure and he is best remembered his whole career e umpire. Who WORKED IN BASEBALL FOR THIRTY YEARS? But if you say that name around anybody in baseball he's best remembered for an incorrect safe call. He made it first base in game. Six of the eighty five world series. He just completely blew the call and it changed the whole complexion of the series and the cardinals were ahead of the royals. Three Games to one to nothing in the eighth and in the bottom of the ninth Jordan. Orta hit a slow Roller Jack. Clark Todd Morale. It was very similar to the play. Lindsey that was in the Gallaraga game called or safe. Even though all the replay showed that he was out by half step and the royals went onto win that game. Two to one. So do we go back and replay that we can't you just can't I mean I do call on the field you enjoy feel bad for Gallaraga. Yeah I do but I think if you go back in any teams lineage. You can like I feel strongly about the Tuck rule that if you go back and watch play. There's no way any rational person doesn't think Tom Brady fumbled. But you can't go back and change it. You can't even go back. I don't even think they should go back. And give the dodgers the two thousand seventeen world series. Even though I don't either even though I know the Astros cheated I just think they should take it away from the Astros. I don't want it. Yeah that's fine just wanted to take it away. That's fine but would you? I think giving it to the dodgers would be the equivalent of giving Gallaraga perfect game. Go you that's point. Yeah it would be funny in this situation on the day after that game. Colorado gave the Tigers lineup card to enjoy at home plate and Ginger. Good guy about it right. Yeah and Jim. Joyce was crying. It was like this whole thing and the two of them actually ended up coming really good friends from the whole situation and actually wrote a book together. The book is the book is about what happened. It's called nobody's perfect. I think it came out years ago but yeah this this whole thing was kind of broken down in a recent athletic article because it's coming up on ten years since it happened. Wow Yeah it's a great question I wouldn't do it. Perfect game all right more fasttrack coming up next for you. Mason Ireland seven ten ESPN role and on with fasttrack. And I think Ireland did to me. Yes credit yesterday would have been Vincent Price's hundred and ninth birthday hit that laugh. A many people remember him for that laugh. At the end of Michael Jackson's thriller.

Check all right guys disgraced former today show anchor Matt. Lauer is the subject of the People magazine Article This Week. Sources tell people that lower wants to work again in journalism and has gone on the offensive lately writing an opinion editorial last week challenging. All of Ronin Farrow's reporting about what happened to him at NBC. Phero reported that Lauer had an inappropriate relationship with a young producer who phero claims. He sexually assaulted the source. Went on to say quote. Matt believes it was a confront a consensual affair. No different than what many powerful people do. His whole mission is to clear his name end quote so lower is sixty two he has million. Some money isn't a problem but he wants to work again. Most of the powerful people who've been caught me two scandal have been unable to come back. Charlie Rose Bill O. Reilly Kevin Spacey and Louis C. K. Or all in this boat May St. You think lower will ever be on TV again as a journalist I do not. I do not believe he will ever be on TV again. I watched the morning show that Apple TV series and to me until basically plays lower and they claim it has nothing to do with it but it obviously is Steve. Carell is playing a Matt Lauer type character because there is an alleged sexual sexual assault. Here I don't think Matt Lauer will ever work again Lindsay. What do you think I agree? Because even though he wants to deny that one particular relationship I remember. There's it's not like it's only one time from what I remember. There's multiple women that have come forward and said that only one or two that he actually got investigated for so. I just think that it's people I don't know they typically don't make stuff like that up and I think that he's kind of giving it one last shot because he knows he's never gonNa work again otherwise John. You read the Ronan Farrow Book. I did not Lindsey. I don't know if you did not. I did and Red Stereo. I only read their own intro book. I read lowers rebuttal to it and I'm with you. I don't think he's going to work again. I just don't I don't believe him. Yeah he's got plenty money right all right Thoughts fast chack. Hulu has begun testing a new code. Viewing feature that will help facilitate the type of virtual movie nights that have become popular as Americans isolated home. Who Watch party. The streamers first social feature will allow subscribers in different places to co view a TV show or movie. And you get a you get a friend or family member and a little box on the screen. That technology is launching today on who lose website. You press a button that says watch party in you enter the information of who you want to watch a movie with and they will pop up on the screen John. Would you be interested in coal watching a movie or TV show? And how popular will this feature be? It's a great question. I don't know if I would be maybe a movie. I haven't seen I. I always ask a Lindsey makes fun of me because I always ask her. Hey you're gonNA date during the pandemic but maybe this is a way. Maybe this is a way for college students for example to say. Hey we can't be together so let's let's go watch a movie on. Huludao think that might fly when to. What do you think I mean? I don't know about using it for date nights during the watch a movie recent lot but I actually watched two two movies. This way with my nephew. When trolls I came out we watch together and then the other night a couple nights ago we watched spies in disguise. We did it did it. Work what trolls together were you able to like have conversations and you know we both. We both started our. Tv's at the same time like movies at the same time. My count down three two one star and then we had each other on our IPADS and my ipad would just sitting next to my nightstand in his same like he was on his ipad sitting next to him on the chair and we washed movie together. You know he's like I'll be right back. You go mix popcorn. We laughed and talked about stuff and it was fun. We've we've done it twice now. We'll probably do it again. Here's my view if I'm watching a movie I'm watching a movie. I don't want a little box in the middle of my TV set. While I'm trying to watch a movie or a TV show. I'm not interested in coaching. When go to see a movie at a movie theatre the last thing I want. Is People Talking during the movie? I don't need anybody to watch a movie with. It's a movie. I'm watching the movie. See The difference though for me at least is when I watched it with my nephew. We were on our IPADS right next to each other and it wasn't interfering with the screen but I was looking for ways for us to be able to sink the movies up because what I ended up having to do with by the movie on two separate platforms so I'd pay twenty bucks twice to watch dreams one on Amazon and one on Voodoo. Because we can't watch both at the same time on the same account so I would be interested in it for that feature if they could Singapore screens. And then if we want to communicate we can communicate. You know what I mean because you can even do like Johnny attacked different if you're connecting with a kid and you want to watch a family movie together and you. WanNA BE US. Talk during the movie. I guess that's different than me. Trying to sit down and watch a movie yeah. I don't know if it'll worker. Not I mean. The necessity is the mother of invention. We're GONNA get a lot of stuff out of this quarantine that that people are going to try. I'm not sure if this is going to work or not. Yeah it's an interesting idea points for trying all right more fasttrack coming up next for you. Mason and Ireland seventeen. Espn role and odds with fasttrack and Ireland edge to you fast track. Daniel Apt abt is as suppose. Last name is a pro formulate eraser with the Audi team. He was suspended this week after it was revealed. He hired a ringer to compete for him in a charity virtual race. Wow apple was kicked out of the race and ordered to pay ten thousand euros to charity for the infraction. The man apt is accused of hiring is Lorenzo. Horsing a pro Gamer who has also been banned. Now this is a real racer on a real Audi team. These guys are just doing this for charity during the pandemic to give some people some competition to watch right. Let's say we ran the Saudi team. Would we allow apt to apologize and come back or is this enough to kick him off our team more than enough to kick them off? The team cheating at a charity race is absolutely chew race. Yeah absolutely inappropriate and an embarrassing and absolutely not. He's not on my team anymore so you you apparently have a different standard when it comes to cheating than I do for example the one time not to listen to the birthday game yes and he told US flat out. I did not listen. Then he played in after he played. He said you know what guys I lied. I did listen. I'll never trust leeway again. You seem to think that he's capable of like of redemption. But now that I know he's willing to believe in a good redemption story. Well here's the thing you're kicking. Daniel apt off the team. Don't believe he can be redeemed. No no I think. He's brought embarrassment team. Why did you forgive Sliwa? Because he was going to be there. No matter what I have no control of other not sleep gonNA come back every night now. My philosophy is this John. I expect the best from people normally. I get it right. I expect the best from people until they lie and one. I know. They're willing to lie like sleeper. I say okay now. I know that guys willing to lie about everything. So coming full circle Daniel apt is a liar. I know he's willing to lie. I don't want him on my team. He's out Lindsey. Would you let him apologize or is this enough to kick them up? I don't know because I think one hand if you're willing to cheat for something for charity you must really really want to win money for charity. And you're obviously super competitive hurting anything. So I think I would probably listen to them in dance. You just said something. That's interesting though. So were you okay. With Lance Armstrong cheating because he raised hundreds of millions of dollars to fight cancer with the end to the ends justify the means no but in this particular situation. I think it's a little bit different because there wasn't nearly as much like at stake. You let them apologize. You kick them off. I kick him off during charity race. Yeah cheated during a charity race. Not Come on. That's pretty remarkable race. Yeah really now. I'm just saying I would give them a chance to plead his case all right fast. Track all right. The four day workweek has been talked about as a way to improve our work life balance over the years. Now it's getting a boost from some world leaders who recently raised the idea as one that might help the economy in the wake of the pandemic. It could especially help places that rely on a substantial amount of domestic tourism like California definitely. One of those places could add a little more flexibility in terms of people's business travel and their days off the longer weekend could help a lot of businesses like restaurants tourism. Four Day workweeks have become more popular recently. Employers explore whether a tighter scheduled can boost productivity companies. That have experimented with four day. Workweeks report them employees. All say they have a higher productivity better work life balance and their stress is reduced. John How do you feel about the four day workweek all all in favor of it from now on? Mason and Ireland. Monday through Thursday. What do you think third? It's going to be Tuesday through Friday. Why no Fridays are more fun to have off. I want the Carson scheduled to he member. He was off every Monday night. I went to check boob schedule. No work on fro work on Friday. It's also it's also a good plant. Says this is the Steve Mates philosophy that you need to take a mental health days every once in a while. Well here's let me ask. Louie ask you a legitimate question. I've got six vacation days left this year and my year ends on June the thirtieth right. We don't carry over vacation one year of our contract to the news. I'll be damned if I'M GONNA leave vacation days on the table even if I have to. Just sit here at my house. I'm going to take those six days. I have eighteen and them. I may ask for a waiver because of the NBA. I can't really do anything now. And if they say no I'll use them but I I may ask them for an exemption because of the NBA because meaning that if the NBA starts up. I can't use them and right now. We're in a pandemic so I don't WanNa take three weeks off before the NBA starts so hopefully they'll let me work something out. I don't know if they if they don't yell. Use Them Yeah. I'll be damned if I'm going to leave those days on the table. I am taking those days no matter what I hope man listening. Because they're coming. Do you believe anyone thought you would leave vacation days. I mean know by now. They should know me. I've never left of vacation day on the table and I never will and by the way. This is some advice to everybody out. There don't leave vacation days on the table. Take those vacation days. It is important. It does increase your productivity by the way some companies are finding that workers get more work done in a four day workweek than they do in a five day workweek. I'm all about a four day. Workweek to increase worker productivity so. Let's not just let's not just joke about a four day workweek I could actually could increase. Productivity accompanies fast track. Okay but last one for me. It's time for the alumni game. I'll give all three of you name the first person who can tell me where these people went to college wins. If you get it on the first name you get two points. I feel has a big. This funchess is been so dominant in this game as you came. Close the last time to beating him. But you're unable to.

It's over four zero. I was very fought. You're so good at that game. That game it's very tough to stump you in the alumni. All right last one last check during the pandemic several high profile figures become unlikely sex symbols now fans can wear their devotion in their pants. La Base clothing. Wait a minute what yes. Now fans can wear their devotion in their pants. La Based Clothing Brand Canova is honoring New York Governor Andrew Cuomo California Governor Gavin Newsom and disease expert. Dr Anthony Fauci with a line of Women's underpants emblazoned with their names. The limited edition line of Of underpants came out in late April with the Cuomo briefs and bikinis which apparently led to demand for new some and thou- cheap versions. When you buy any of these limited edition products they will be matching your purchase with an equal donation to covert nineteen relief. So question which of these panties do you think are the biggest sellers? And I don't know the answer Gavin Newsom Andrew Cuomo or Dr Anthony Fauci well in the case of newsome and Cuomo. They break on political lines because they are the governors of two huge states. But they're both Democrats the Republicans don't like them. I would think that kind of transcends party doesn't he publicans and Democrats that would be PFAU chief fans. I think everyone loves them. Everybody loves him. Here's the thing though John. Think about this. Who is more likely to wear underpants with? Somebody's name on them. I a Republican or Democrat Democrat. Okay who is the best looking of the three newsom? Newsom I think is the correct answer. Okay new would like to have newsom in on their undermine I actually I stop saying that newsome. I think there are days where he's been an excellent leader in a good governor so this has nothing to do with and I also think there's Times he's made mistakes. This has nothing to do with his political career. He was involved in in one of the shadiest sex scandals of all time and I think most women know that story. You think they're still riding with them after that so basically give makes them think they all have a chance. How long ago did this occur longtime ago? Maybe maybe ten. So here's what happened. His he was married his campaign manager. Who is one of his best friends was married and while he was running for. I want to say mayor of Simpson's maybe even had just got out of that. He had an affair with his with this guy's wife like he broke up two marriages with the affair and and it was very shady and it was very well covered and it was like wow. He's willing to cross that line like he's The guy that sleeps with his best friend's wife so I think a lot of women would probably be. Maybe not is that a is that a skin or did he just fall in love. No no no they immediately. When that ended they all went their separate ways. In other words. I always thought he married that woman. He no he then later he found someone else and now he seems to be very happily married. I think he's got three or four kids. But if you're if you're willing to do that if you're willing to sleep with one of your best friends wives that's a big deal particularly to women that that's a line that most people want. It was two thousand seven so that ham years ago when it comes to underwear women are probably aren't thinking about that and I think that we should also remove the word underpants from language period. Because it's just a weird word underpants rather ride with underwear underwear. Got Underpants is just a weird strange word is a weird word is on their plants. Where what? You're my grandma. My grandma used to say underpants. Little Kid put your underpants series point serious question if if sleep head. Somebody's pictures on his underwear. Oh good who would it be good question Mason? No I saw somebody from the athletic. That's what I think I know who but it'd be somebody from the plan drew. Mora I was thinking more like cookie. Monster Something Weird Amick say Oh yeah. Nba Guy from the athletic. You're maybe plachy pledged his underpants coming up next time. People Sodas come down in Los Angeles city starting open up in about to open. A Show is Allah sleep. It is sleeker at sunset coming next seven to ten. Espn let me tell you something. If you missed any of today's Mason and Ireland Show. You got to go back and listen to the PODCAST. Because this was a spectacular addition of the show it was open phones international. It was predicted by some Lindsey to be a total and complete failure but instead it turned into some remarkable radio Lindsey. Do you agree. It was great fantastic. That's show ever yet ladies very excited. Because she just got a she just got an email that they're opening the pool at the place where she lives but Lindsay. You have to wear a mask in the pool area. Apparently not so much excited about the pool as I am the hot tub because not being able to get massages for another month or whatever by definitely need hot tub all right so we do. I think very delete because right now sleet was here. It's Leila at sunset and sleep. Well we asked a very pressing question of fireplaces on excellent fireplace. What if you had? If you had to have someone's picture on your underwear would you pick? I predicted it. Would Bill plachy? Funchess said it was Sam. Amick from the athletic. And where did you end up as role more from the athletic? I think it might be the athletic logo all the athletic logo. That's very good. It's the athletic logo athletic logo. So you welcome all things athletic in your underpants I was. I haven't agreement Avenue Agreement with the athletic that if I put their logo on my underwear. I don't have to pay the monthly fee you. It's it's an understanding you're selling you're selling billboard space on your underpants who thought it was laskey who thought it was Flash Airlines. You won't come on this show and he'll come on your show you know. Normally that situation is reversed we get all the big names and then you people say to you now who you know. In in his case it's reversed you get plachy whenever you want him and we never get. That's my star fame right there. That's my star fame. Maybe maybe I'll put a word out. I'll you've got plachy. He wrote a column like six weeks ago. Said forget it. There will be no sports this year. Get over it no sports. The Sky is falling. Good Ball You. Were all over that one. Bill nailed it all right. So let's get to the part of the show that people look forward to the most trying to predict the outcome of sleep for just before we do that. John Mace just where it is today. Show rank at of just from a historical perspective for Mason and Ireland. Where would you put today show for you? I did one show in Toledo that will never be topped So that's that at the eighty six. That was the ninety one the ninety one there was a show that Ireland and I did in two thousand three that I would rank number two and I think today show third best show. I've ever been associated with in my entire career. Wow very exciting. All right the over under on the Amana guest tonight. You've been very predictable lately. It seems like you've had two guests tonight. None insistently for really longtime mace. We're going to set the number two and a half because I don't think sleep. We'll we'll go with one and the question is did he had a third guest. Two and a half is the number you go over under. It's Friday night. Other right at own is as ladies night ladies. That'S RIGHT LADIES LINE. Open eight seven seven seven seven. Espn I'M GONNA say the over. I think he's looking to mail it into night three guests to Lindsay. I'm taking the under what do you. What do you say break the time I'm going to go with the over sleep? Well how many guests tonight tonight. Two guests to guests. Yeah you've been every night this week you've had to okay John. I have a question. Should I start planning how many guests? I have not really paying attention to the show more paying attention to when we do this over under should I hear me? Here's the thing this is all we care about because we don't hear your show. What is what. The reason is to our next question How many of the two guests will we ever actually heard of the over under is one so mace? Do you think you will? I correctly predicted. I knew both guests right. I also predicting nope. He's not going to two nights in a row. I'm going under under the so. I'm going to say to one and a half under I'm going under one and a half I am going under. I think there's one guest we haven't heard of Lindsey over under well under two but don't take the over if you want to take the opening bell on all right. Who Do you got do I? Am I revealing too early? We're not asking what sports or anything. Oh Yeah we all these are how many NBA guests. We didn't do that. We didn't do. How many from the athletics right? Hold off that. Hold off on that right now. How many from the athletic one half Mace One? How if he has anybody from the athletic take the over. I think that we have scared him out of taking chance. I think zero from I think was the last one athletic. I'm Lindsay. Are you going over a panic? I think it's just one half or one one one. Oh It's definitely over. Oh you think he's got. Somebody knows okay. Allen guests from the athletic tonight how many non from the athletic s not one while what if I came in one night with just four from the athletic. That'd be fantastic. This'll be a great segment how many NBA related it was a very big NBA again. Be a day over under his one and a half Mace. I think he tipped the sand. I think it's under one and a half it's over he's got to NBA guest tonight they're both NBA Lindsay. What do you think I agree with John both the over both MBA sleeve how many NBA NFL Mason with Vic Emesa Mace? Have we heard of these people one and a half sleeve the guest to The first guest is Mark Medina Search Medina. Hurry Medina if we know the second guess. I trump you guys again. There's no way we've heard of this. Nfl guest a guarantee. I've heard of them. Who is actually? I don't know if I think you guys should but I'm not sure don't say where he's from. Just give us the name and if I can tell you where he's from that means I win. What's the name Dan Graciano? Of course he works for? Espn Dan Grazziano. Of course we know he's on the back so I had I had one time. No let me tell you and Grazziano is Deidra are what why are you downgrading him and we tell you what knows name. He's a very big Guy. He's been the tell you why five times listen about two weeks ago the front of ESPN DOT com. I was one of the writers from ESPN. And when I said his name you guys like who is he. Where does he work from so now? I'm just assuming whoever I put on. It doesn't even matter. You guys are GonNa say you have no idea? Dan Grazziano is a big star. I can't believe you've downgraded put Bob fish buying on the show. You can't Franken Bat. Was this week from the Times. I gotta find this on Instagram. Whatever the comments on their literally all the guys said Sliwa. What's in the CAN? What's in the can we haven't chance or losing the canned night's sleep. We haven't gotten it yet.

He's in the. Can I say one in the CAN? Mace the over under one and a half I am I know Graziano. In the can he would not stay up late to do sleep with show. GimMe Mark Medina's live Grazziano than the cat Lindsey. You agree feel different. Casinos one hundred percent and the can one hundred percent. Wow Alan how million can guess Lindsey. How many in the CAN guess one? Yeah all three of us. Think Grazziano is in the can and Medina is live. What is the real truth? Okay here's what happened there both case base race. Here's what on a Friday. Listen listen seven o'clock Medina's supposed to go at seven and then last-second he couldn't go at seven record in tonight. This might as well record Mondays to. Fridays are tough. Though Friday's I would imagine you have to put a lot in the can now. It's actually it's OK. P people don't want to stay Friday night only. The East Coast is where I'm always trying to accommodate some Giovanni Jovan did alive so basically most of your show has already been recorded two segments. Yeah now it's one up. Just prerecorded the whole thing. Why not just do it at two o'clock in the afternoon and just turn over the tape and let them. If if you guys want if you want I could. I could take off now. You guys can finish cross talk and I get another segment in before my shelf starts. We used to work in the same building. Mason. I've done this show over the years in like ten different buildings. One of the buildings we worked in was with Rick Dees. Yeah there are some days that rick would win. I'm not kidding is on both on from six to ten. Am and Rick Role in it. Like quarter to nine and we don't look at Ellen Huet we'd go what the hell the first two and a half hours so he rick perfected it. So here's a great rookie story so leers years ago okay.

This year because of Because remote learning because all the stuff that students had to go through this year to I just gave one to every single student That had the permission slip. Signed on just because i felt like no matter how you know all the kids no matter how hard they're working they they deserve a little something. So wow we just hear i could hear in your voice you know the passion and the dedication that you have for your students and i know You know you you serve as an exam to your peers there at Alex martino junior high and You know we got to thank you for your contribution especially now you know even more challenging. And yet you're figuring out a way to do it and motivate kids. 'cause i gotta think it's you know like we talked about in the beginning. It's hard enough. I would imagine to captivate seventh grader. In person it's gotta be a whole different challenge to try and get them to pay attention on a zoom call. Yeah i kind of i. Compared learning seventy grades seven graders learning remotely compared to like Freshman year of college distractions that during their their house. And so there's distractions of video. Games are just making tiktok videos. They're going to like wanting to walk their dogs. And so those distraction for summit craters like you have to have that self control and and so that was that was difficult for some students. But i had a hand in hand to leave kids like i was very happy with the work that they've been doing remotely. And when it was difficult to energy i am a teacher who thrives off the students energy back to me and when i see them learning and feed them excited to learn it it actually me as well and so a little bit a little bit of that was lacking because i didn't know them at first person But now that. I got to know The students in person for about two months now going back remotely. I feel like we'll have a better connection. And i think that'll end up helping in the long run. They look mr k. Of these kids. They're not focusing. It's your fault. You're the one giving them the sugar alex martinez junior high school. Thank you so much You for being amazing.

I want you to tell the story. Go ahead yeah. I mean six months. And i mean i really like. Or there's been some symbolic touring me. i'm not into it social media. I'm not into it and she is. She got a huge following an influence or something like god. I'm fine with that. You know that i'm fine. She does it. She got a big big thing. Going on but i mean she shares everything. I mean like everything and and that includes me so now. It's like how i'm being followed to and it's like you know they know everything they don't we have five. You know about like so. My habits of things are eat. Because i do like. I tried to talk to her and You know just you know set. Some boundaries gets compromise. Let her do her thing you know. Let me breathe. Let me Do mind but i have have been important questions for you. Try a first of all. Did you know six months ago when you met this girl i mean. Did you meet her on social media. Did you meet her doing his influence. Liked and did you know the scope of what she did. Because it doesn't sound like this happened in the last six months. Sounds like it's been going on that. She had the following then. She been making money on instagram. I you know. I didn't think it would be like an issue that i would be a part of you know i. I knew that it was the thing and and you know i met with that. I was like okay cool. Try it out. You know it's a it's a new thing going on and you know. I don't wanna hate on her hustler for nothing but it's just like god. I do think you wanna be a part of it but my question is did you know that i may so girl and it's happened before you know i'm an influence here or i. I run this website. I had this blog. I if i think. I'm gonna like the person i think we're gonna go out with an. I'll go look at what that person's doing if i don't already know and and then i kinda have to decide if this you have a conversation right. I mean at some point before six months you have a conversation. You're like hey You did his lifestyle blog very revealing. You talk about a lot of things like how much of this has to do with me. And then he set those ground rules from the beginning. I mean what i'm saying to. You is a house surprised. Are you that you're a part of it. I mean i'm just shocked. Like i think it'd be interesting dude. I got all these fans like people asking questions and all that and it's just like i did expect i don't know social media works and we have a good time and i just that's all i look at so you go you to her and say i don't want to be on all this i don't i i don't have any aditorial control. You know you're just you say about me. Whatever you want. And i don't. I don't wanna be on there and she doesn't care you know she. She just thinks that she just thinks that. I want her to change something. I i wanna have some to rollover and it's just that i want to be free of it i yeah i just don't want questions about me or just like all this stuff for like my own fan club like should spin it and start your own or two. Yeah six year s paulina. Secure the bag. Trae hobby and then i just i be working for myself out there putting in overtime and that you want to compete with thursday all right i just wanna reach out. I just wanna to clear before we before we weigh always want to be clear. You're dating a girl who you knew to be an instagram influence. You knew this was a side hustle. You knew that she was making money this way. And you knew that it was revealing. And now you're part of it you don't want to be you've communicated with her that you don't wanna be yet you still are and you wanna know if you can stay in this relationship. I mean i to me. It's like people who date us. It's like you know. I understand their ground rules. I understand that you know. I'm sure In the room when we meet somebody new or or win as you come up in your career. If you're already with somebody then you know then the person would say hey this. Here's where i don't want you to go and if you care about that person and you don't go there but i mean if you date me then stuff is gonna go on the air what i do. It's it's part of you know what i'm saying like i can't just decide one day. I married with kids. But you guys don't get to hear about that. Because then what i mean. What do i have to offer them. Might be sharing my experience in my life with you guys with me and us with. That's that's how this works. But you know what i mean at the same time fred. There's a company ability level of you know the person that you're dating saying ham not comfortable with that and that's where you should draw the line be like i'm not comfortable with that being on your social media. I think his girlfriend's should respect his wishes and not put him on there anymore. But i guess i'm going. This is reveal if if this is what she does and this is what she's always done and this is what her following and he knew this early on you know short. There needs to be some level of compromise. But she's probably not gonna stop talking about it because it's part of a brand. Yeah there is a level of compromise but at the same time he. She didn't make her brand using him. You what i'm saying. He's just an added value to it which he could she could easily remove and she'll be her father not going to be leaving her. Because oh my god. You're not putting your boyfriend on there anymore. i'm outta here. You don't know trae sounds pretty frigging entertain. Looks like an accountant or like a teacher girlfriend. A whole new ground play. Do you benefit from this at all. Trae i mean do you mean is there any of the money coming in. I mean any of the attention. You don't like any of it. I just wanna just want us to have a good time. And i just want argue times. Just be arkansas time. I dated a girl honestly. Sounds like your kids transactions prioritizing she prioritizes the side hustle and this instagram attention more than she prioritizes their relationship. It doesn't sound like it's getting more from that than than she is or at. Least he's willing to concede for you as it sounds like i mean it just you know i mean she comes out like it's her business kind of thing. I don't mind that she's like looking at her phone. Going out all the time or maybe take out. Take a picture of sell theater any of that stuff but it it. It's just at the same time. I just feel like. Is there any way and just get a kind of space. That's that's that's just us. And i just i don for sure he. You're not you're not saying anything that's wrong right now. I mean you deserve that. But if that doesn't work out then yeah. I don't know if she's going to go for that because that's kind of her job like she's going to be on social media twenty four seven because that's income for her but at the same time i think there should be a middle ground between the two of you saying all right. You know what. I won't share you as much or let's just do this without social media which might be hard for her. But i don't know if it'll happen. She sounds like she wants to be. One of those is corny couples. You know those ones that do videos together. The youtuber dolphins but that's kind of those Those fourteen year olds with the kissing. That made us all. They taught me how to kiss them. What the hell is this. I don't know those those seem into it so Trae portraying hold. And let's get her instagram handle so we can go liquor liquor what she's all about I have a day. We're gonna get some calls on this and we'll see what people have to say. What i good luck right right. I don't i don't i don't think what he's asking for is unfair but i also wonder how much does he knew about going into it and i also i also wonder if if he just wants to be removed completely and she's not going to do that because you know whatever her having a boyfriend is part of this whole image that she's trying to portray S i wonder how much of this he he probably should have been aware of going into it. Did he say like how. I'm sorry if i missed this. But did he say how how personal or how detailed she gets about him because they they know every fight they have and everything. That's okay he's saying like is it the specifics of the fight or i'm not sure no. He just said that. We hung up on trays. So we brought to you. By spirit hub uncommon craft delivered. This has all wanting to be healthier and that includes our health. But how do you get vision coverage retiring. it's actually pretty easy the sp the vision coverage many people through work offers individual vision plans enroll. Any time on any device can start using your benefits the same day. You don't need to be an employee to get employee level vision coverage visit. Vs p direct dot com today. That's bs p direct dot com yourself. Just thank like. I don't know i mean to talk about and also how much money are we talking about here too because it's like yeah i get it You probably its version of events and it's probably not You know an accurate portrayal of him all the time. He doesn't get to defend themselves. And i'm sure that's annoying but then again who cares because how many of these people really know him. Very few people probably even know him anyway. And if she's not using his proper name and he's just a fictitious characteristed just whatever but at the same time like a lot of our listeners. Know a lot about just just because i share stuff about you know the two of us. So why when she is cool. There's there's things out. Obviously i don't post but If we go somewhere and i get recognized they know who she is. They know who ashland is so. It's it's not like you know it's the listeners. The day no you don't saying they they follow our lives. They listen to our lives so they know a lot like just by sharing and social media so if she's using him and sharing him on her platform then they probably know a lot about him when she's that big the she. I'm not saying that we're that big but it's a little different. I mean if he's that big on the ground that she's walking around and everybody knows who she and this guy who they are than All i mean he should be happening. They probably living in a nice place. Yeah right. I'm telling you spin it where he makes income off of this himself. I mean it's a difference between like we had a little fight to going into details about the fight or being like he has a heart problem. How much like. I don't know bums out that they can't compromise because people do like that is how you relate to people like. You can't be like my life is perfect. You know what i mean. I do appreciate when people are real on social media. And i think that you know followers like that also so i don't know if she is unwilling to compromise at all at all then she's probably self absorbed and its relationship for him but if if she's if he wants to not be involved at all he wants to be raised from this thing and yet he met her and that's what she was doing then he should have known what he was getting into. Some what is i guess. My point Yeah if he doesn't want any exposure on there at all and this is what she does her character her little alter-ego or whatever it is over here. We'll and team on him. He should have said about the ground rules from the very beginning or not been with her. So this is what. I was what i was trying to get with these guys. Is this something new. Has she liked you know. Has she come up in the last six months in in whatever this is and then an attached to you and now you're the contents or pt. Has she ever when she dated is part of this as everybody else. And it's just the way that it is I want so if you dated somebody. Who had this sort of social media exposure whether it's take or instagram or whatever and you're a part of it i mean and they're unwilling to remove you from it. You jump that person i mean. Do you break up with them. Of course you attempt to compromise. But i mean like what is this guy going to do because again if he knew what he if this is what she was doing then he should have known he was getting into and if she's making money doing it then i mean you're asking her now to adjust her her revenue stream and i don't know he's he willing to supplement that and or is she or is that more important to her than a relationship and if the instagram stuff is more important than the relationship then probably shouldn't be together right. Yeah he needs to. I agree with all you guys used to get his own graham ryan and respond and they can split the proceeds of each about that right. I might watch that. He said this. Then i'd go over there. He's your what would you do. Eight five five five nine one one zero. Three five You you you day. Social media influence a you did a radio personality and you And you find yourself being part of the content. I mean how do you do. Is it shame on you because you knew from the beginning. Is it no compromise. i'm out is it. I wouldn't have even done it to with arianna is unknown. Hit us up entertainment for next fred show. What else five. I gotta look up the words to that song. I mean i've heard. I've heard it like fifty thousand times. Which part are you having trouble with it in positions for you. She's in the kitchen and she's in the bedroom. Yeah thirty four. Thirty five fred union. Move on from this song. I love the job. If you add those up maybe up to sixty nine but i just. Because i was blushing. And that's very hard to do. Just because she ll see her like she's so tiny right. I don't know but yes. She wanted label. Must have been very difficult for what's his face to keep up with Yeah pta must've been jerry byrd is great a great time. Is that right yeah. Her new boyfriend must be enjoying life right now. Like the the real estate dude. I mean if he's in the kitchen and songs written for him. I owed assume so. What do we need something of his. She's like like blazer. Anyway what about the. What about the position. What about that were up. And everybody thou doth protest too much. I think i think Shakespeare wants paulina. Told me that It's the power she goes. But i don't know what the hell that part is. I can't understand you know a little mushy for switching in the kitchen for what is it. Switches positions for you hold on a second kitchen and in the bedroom in both places. I've seen the video everything flips around in it in the white house to know i've seen a video Let me see here switching positions for you cook in the kitchen and in the bedroom. I'm in the olympics way. I'm jumping through hoops. Know my love infinite. nothing. I wouldn't do that. I won't do switching for swit- cooking and that's what it is. Parts are the kitchen in the bedroom. I think those are the parts. That i i can't understand but you know with arianna there many lyrics i understand Wonderful voice mariah high moraga morning. How are you good. I just going back on this stare. Go with traders. The second he's dating some kind of influence there and he's now part of the of the of the narrative of the story line and he doesn't like it and she apparently is unwilling to remove them. So does she go so. I don't think that it's really a stay or go. I think so. I can personally i previously awhile ago days only had a big following and i also have friends that never be crawling and although they do post their significant others on their social. Media's nolan goes into that much detail like no one knows about private trist knows about the habit when he was saying that the problem is no about every friday far he some boundaries in a little bit of privacy because no you don't want anyone knowing every little detail about your relationship and what you're going through. I still think. Obviously she has social media influence there that he is going to be part of her Page she just needs to have a little bit more privacy. Go back to and this is a number of things that he didn't really wouldn't respond to you. How long has she been doing this. And this her game she have the is her instagram channel about about relationships and her version of events because if it is well then he should have known roy then she's different from all the other ones right exactly and i think I'm not sure. Obviously she was single before they dated. I'm not sure if he really saw on the social house. She wants with another her boyfriend so maybe he saw she is a social media influence there but he never really saw how she was. What the boyfriend of as much detail that she puts into that So many wasn't clear. But i do think it bottom line is that they probably have to set some boundaries. And if he's not comfortable that ultimately he probably does have to leave can turn off Thank you have a great day more. You tell nick what's going on. Good morning how you doing good good. Are you guys doing nick great. May you can get out of this thing. Yeah i mean so get out of it. I kind of agree with the previous caller. Who said you got to set up to set up the boundaries and then decide if you wanna leave or not because honestly yes. She is an influencer. And i'm i'm sure he's seen what she does and so she talked about her personal life and so she's got a you know show that she's dating or whatever it is So he's got to put up those boundaries and yeah explain that. This is how far i want you to. We're not because it's almost the same as guys getting together out of the bar and sharing the second life with each other. You don't wanna share everything you don't wanna talk about everything but you want you want to share some things about your life especially as an influence But he's got to put up those boundaries. And like the kind of work i do and i'm not gonna go into too much of it but i have worked with people in the industry people who are implemented on things like only fans hang bad news. Buddy dad knew only. You just can't do that to us. Buddy you can't you can't just set that one down and then walk away with only nick. I don't do anything i'm a. I'm a counselor counseling. And so like some of the people that i meet with their influences are in a different way. They're not finished influencers in our food. Influencers they do something else. They always have that balance. So you have to have that balance. If not get out. No i look i i agree with you thank you today. I agree with you but that's why i kept pressing the guy i'm like trae. What what is the content on this instagram. Because if i find out that her. Instagram is like I talk about my boyfriend. He needs to grammar. Then what if you think was going to happen. If i if i find out that her instagram was like cooking with katie. And now the sudden she's talking about how you know he has stinky balls. She's cooking leans will then. That's not you know then. It's obviously sort of evolving into a direction that he's uncomfortable with Tonya good morning tanya. How're you how are you doing. Little tiny thanks for listening you get the final say on the stay or go in this Instagram influence or dynamic. There were me and they couldn't respect my which it. I would go Like i would sally. We have a role there at the table and we can't enjoy time with each other if we're busy worrying about who's joining like we need that door to that won't be able to have intimate compensation for whatever we can't be estimates. Were just explode. If i'm in saying oh hey having a great song. They don't have time for actually what you do for a living and and your partner knows that then up to a certain point and wherever that point is i guess kind of determines or is determined by what you've been doing then you gotta see this coming okay. I don't think i would. Because i can't understand what you're giant you don't read on. Shoot you that post. That i'm thinking in my head we're at dinner and we can't even order food because we're on a conversation with each other because social media has to be involved in the conversation it gets where where he you know. I understand. this is your job but you know it's like frank. I work in accounting. And he's like they account the goes and takes the word problem. You're gonna leave every gam boundaries. Don't mesa i hear what you're saying. Thank you have a great day. I still want to see her instagram. And i want to see someone. Knicks clients free five. The latest entertainment news is on the phone to the story yesterday. And honestly. I can't believe i'm even saying this. But he gas removed all references to selena gomez and jokes about her kidney transplant. In the saved by the bell reboot is that not the weirdest scented. You've ever heard. I watch those clips. Doesn't add to the story that it make any sense on. Why you even bring it up. So i guess can you still because an edited version is already streaming. So where did you just look on on on twitter like people. People are trending in the clips. Like we're watching here. Yeah so selena has remained silent but her fans were rightfully in my opinion pissed when they heard about it over the weekend the network did also apologize and offer to make a donation to her charity. What the hell were they thinking. I i don't understand especially like they were the film that a while ago has to get screened. It has to be so many people talk about transplant. This show is supposed to be like. I thought i mean i didn't think i i think i've seen every say about the bill episode up until this new thing it's supposed to be like wholesome and the supposed to be a meaning i mean why would this joke know. Who's in charge of like you know like this is what the kids are bro. Kids are talking about in school. Selena gomez and. I'm like you need to get fired if that's your your consultant of who's What they're talking high school now. Twenty seventeen or thirty years ago. Yeah be happy. she's alive. You weird up guys let me you. Nothing makes me gaafar like a kidney transplant joke. I mean there's absolutely hilarious think. It's a real knee slapper. This year is just. I'm ready for one of those things it's like. We did it on purpose. Throw now people are gonna watch more well but as a president the deal but i mean there's a lot of other ways you could have done that the more relevant way on so laurie laughlin. Laurie los excuse me. She needs to take notes because felicity huffman has already landed her first role since serving time for the college admissions scandal. The desperate housewives star is returning to abc for comedy inspired by a real life story of susan savage who inherited a minor league baseball team the sacramento river cats. Which you said. That's a real team review okay. So after her husband's dash got the team. Good for you girl. I mean take notes. If i starring own your like. You might get another chance. The irony here is. I don't know much about felicity. Huffman career post Desperate housewives and that show is so big. You know early mid-2000s but but i don't know that she would have gotten this role on a major network if she hadn't cops to all of this all the publicity and gone to jail if i mean that's that's the interesting part of it is i don't i don't remember her being cast in any leading role. I you can correct me on this. But i didn't she maybe but here she is front and center Big networks show and she cop to it. Wednesday know took the wind jail got done but the saints probably going to happen for laurie. Laurie law it's gonna wind up right back on the hallmark channel. Doing some kind of redemption movie. You know about some conciliatory tour about how she screwed up. And everyone's gonna accept her all well. She said she was sorry. And the whole thing. I feel like yeah. I feel like when she gets onto president. I feel like. I think they're going to be calling like let's tell your story. Let's tell your side of the story. Let's do interviews. Let's put your back on tv because Doesn't cop to it though it's like your you know your sentences longer and i hope she serves her whole sentence like i mean she still saying she didn't do one thing wrong. I don't like it. But yeah i mean look are you going to do is say you're sorry. Say you did say sorry. Say you screwed up and then if not that. It's right but if you play the car that i was just trying to do the best thing for my family for my kids who whatever. It's like angles. She could've played and easily city was in jail for like a day and she has a job. And i know so see felicity put us on retainer and we consulted her and we sold her what to do and look at. What's happening. I only know lori laughlin. If you'd like to be a client of our firm then you know small retainer and it's going to be more expensive now because we got more to clean up grace. It could have been cheaper but it's going to be more expensive now but we can fix this for you. Yeah and her daughter. I kind of feel bad for her daughter so hopefully she gets back. I don't know. I mean just wrong and all parts. I'm absolutely losing my mind over this couple. But i'm hearing that. Riana is dating as sav rocky yes. So they've they've they've been friends for a long time. He's been on one of her songs. He's opened up for her on tour but now people think it is getting romantic. Since she split from her boyfriend in january. I guess they were seen having dinner in new york last weekend. I can't find it now. But i follow her on instagram and she posted a picture of them hogging said something. Like i miss these hugs or something and i was like whoa. That's weird and i was like. Oh they're just friends. And then now i can't find it but we we have seen him having a good time with another lady. Oh really was quite interesting. But they're i mean they're like the hottest couple if it's true they would look amazing together more to check out online today. There's a really sad video of millie bobby brown. She's crying is out.

And how allow the gregarious people are being it reveals that the size or type of the room doesn't matter all that much but what types of masks the people occupying it or wearing and the ventilation system. It's equipped with can dramatically dr risks down. But i would imagine. I could sit on this apple day and come up with scenarios k and by the end of it be convinced i have could be coronavirus and then go get tested. Because that's how. I feel pretty much be realistic symptoms. I'm like oh i have. I have those. And then i went to go get tested and Somehow managed to not have their own it yet The state hawaii this guy.

Blogs are next on the fred shred show. Yeah talk better than they tied these. The radio blogs on the fred show is Audio journals about this time. Six fifty and fifty. We do them kaylynn wash. You got thank you dear blog so i hope this person doesn't mind me sharing. I won't use any names or anything but so a friend of mine had met someone new super excited about them. You know thought like maybe they could be the one they still might be the one but she also goes to therapy as most of us on the show and was talking about this new person getting super specific and therapists. That i have to stop you right there. And she looked up and was like why and my hand was at the therapist had dated. This person was it a patient a celebration. This person's x. also sees the therapist good on the therapist because she was like this will be a conflict of interest or. I don't know what you would use for that but like it wouldn't be fair anymore because she probably said about that guy to the therapist. I don't know i. I know that there was some other details of the relationship because she did end up bringing up. The therapist was like please. Don't bring it up. She brought it up to the new person and Obviously i don't know said some things about his ex by i. I didn't know if that was something that happens a lot. I mean it's a big city. And i've i've gone to a lot of therapy. Never never had that by that sucks because anyone who's found and what has been through therapy knows that it it sometimes can take a while to find a connection with a therapist have to have a conflict of interest in order to discover that you know that you might need to go get a fresh set of ears That that would be disappointing right. I'll tell you a similar story but not exactly the same i. I dated a girl who was going to therapy with her axe at his suggestion. Yes they break up. She continues seeing the therapist who she was seeing with the ex and now this therapist is consulting. Her on her on the new relationship with me and i told my therapist. That and my therapist is like that's completely unethical. Like if you go to therapy for a specific purpose in this case relationship counseling and this person sees you in the light and is giving you feedback in his counseling you in sort of in the in the context of of one relationship then. She needs to fire herself. You're now coming to her for relationship advice on relationship number two. Because you didn't come. There is an individual and then he came in and joins right and but but but it was your therapist you in in there together to to resolve a relationship issue and now you're coming in with a new relationship and i don't know the was just so messy and i i just i remember saying to this girl that i'm dating. I'm like this woman sees you only in one way you know. She sees you in the context of a former relationship. And you can't like. I don't care what she says about this relationship because i'm not the same guy and maybe you're not the same woman key part. That makes it unethical. That it wasn't her own therapist was bringing in the boyfriend. Only for that. It's like that they started seeing it for one and she doesn't know her before or after because you can see a therapist and date multiple people. That's i guess my dear. But yeah so i mean i just i you know and then yeah you're right. That's what she doesn't talk about like she's saying that she feels like this guy could be the one so what them yes sir. Therapist budget sucks. She can't talk about her boyfriend or therapist and we go back in you know into or whatever like in the waiting room. I'd be like is it her an does she come to you. See you to and there's a. There's i don't know if you guys read that book I believe i hope. I got the title right but hope i get a or maybe you should talk to somebody. It's a. it's a therapist writing from her perspective. Not natalie about advising clients but also about her life and dealing with her own issues in her own sort of journey through therapy. It's actually very good buck. And she doesn't get specific obviously about people's names and everybody talks about the book. She had permission to talk. About putting one case she's consulting a woman who met another one of her clients if i remember correctly in the lobby and so this therapist knows about him and knows about her and now they're dating and i wanna say that or or maybe maybe maybe he was seeing another therapist in the same office. But yet those two but therapists who work. I guess in the same office will oftentimes consult one another on cases and so in this particular case. They couldn't talk about their clients because well she represents or works with one and then the other therapists works with the other. And it's like do. Don't meet anybody in the office of therapist. Okay find another another place to hook up. you know. That was an episode of the kind of. Like if i was there that was my therapists. And they're like you can't talk about this person. Because i know i'd be kind of skeptical that the other person is still talking about. You know what. I'm saying like blink. Once if he's crazy get something which is to find a new therapist because the whole time you just thinking what does she know right down over there. I don't know it's just like so crazy. Because i guess i don't know i've never encountered that and they couldn't imagine like how my mind would turn if i just heard say like i have to stop you. I'd be like oh my god you. Did you banged him. What are you doing like credit card declined. You gotta have an. I guess i've been going long enough. And i when as a kid my parents got divorced and the whole thing and i had a bad experience with that but then i found. This woman has been great You know but but there are a few things. I've learned i guess one is you know you you've got if you're going to therapy and you really expect to gain from it. You have to. You have to be as objective as possible to be about yourself. Which i know is hard to do. But like i go out on my way to try and tell both sides of the story because if i don't if i just go in there and tell you my version of events my twisted version of events may maybe through the filter that i'm actually there to deal with then. My therapist like anyone else is just going to say. Oh well they're going to respond to you in a way that that is indicative of or responsive of what the way you told the story set like doesn't even feel bad for me if i'm telling you they give you so she's like nope. Well maybe maybe maybe she seeing some bias in the way that you're telling the story she's pretty fiery well she's probably saying so. That's fine if i go in there and maybe there's a theme in that. But if i go in there and victim of everybody then my therapist is at some point is gonna realize that i have a victim complex and we're going to work on that but if i go in there and every single time it's everybody else's fault i'm not growing unless she's going to point that out. We're going to work on that. You know so. I try and go in there and talk about objectively. That's why i bring that up. Because that's why you know she when i when i talked to her about the axe and her therapy situation. She's like if you brought your ex in here or you know at the time my girlfriend or you brought your father in here who we talk about. you know. i'm here for you so those people have to know that i don't really care about them. I'm here to make sure that you get through that process and that would be a talk that we would have to have you know in in person sits down. I i'm your therapist. I'm your doctor. I'm your whatever. I'm not there for them. I'm not there to coddle them. i don't know i'm here to work you through that. And so i guess the point of my rant is i think you've got to be. The whole process has to be as objective as possible without any bias. And if if there's any thing there. I think it's going to distract the process. I think he's gonna find somebody new. Oh totally yeah. I mean i'll update you guys on what happens but i just feel back. She does airbus speaking of like. Did you guys have to find new like because both your therapists are pregnant weird. It's not the same lady but on so they offer they'll be like so here's abc crisis. If you do want to see someone. But i was like you know what i'm gonna get my wallet break. I'm i'm pretty okay. I think knock on its designer everything that could have happened to me this year. Already check check check but yeah so they offer someone for if you want to see someone subtly they kind of leave it up to you You can find someone new. They can recommend someone new do fred. Di that was interesting is that i have the same situation but yeah in In the funny thing is i. I mentioned it when it happened. But i haven't seen my therapist person in your far i guess. And so it's all been on zoom in on zoom. You know you only see kinda boobs up. Yeah so. I didn't even know she was pregnant. And so she says to me maybe september or august she said. Hey heads up. I'm expecting and then what was interesting about. That is that she kept bringing it up and wanting to sort of get into any sort of feelings i had about it and i guess that there were what i what i was able. I was that there were people who had an issue with it like they. They were mad at her for being pregnant or they had a negative reaction. And i on the other hand was like i don't know you don't want it really did for me. Was it opened my eyes to how little i know about her. And she's there for me. And i know a good therapist doesn't cloud sort of You know the therapeutic value with with their own life perspective. But i don't know if she's married i don't know if she's a lesbian i don't know if she is dating someone. The kid was an accident. I don't know. I mean there's a million different scenarios and i did talk to her about that. I'm like you know all this really unhappy for you. And i'm cool and i'm this is my favorite time of year so like i'm just gonna take a break when we come back i'll come back to you and yeah same thing. She gave me a phone number. Anything goes wrong. You can call this number and this person's covering for me but what it really opened my eyes to was just how little i know about her after four years. And this is a person who i who knows everything about me and so we spent more time talking about that because chicago. What do you want to know. you know. Maybe i'll ask your questions. And maybe i won't depending on if it's appropriate. I'm like no we don't have to do that. I guess it's just my point is this is such a there's a level of sort of looking for there's a relationship is somewhat nurturing. Environment is somewhat nurturing but yet we're not friends you know she she. She cares an expresses care for my you know wellbeing in my progress and my growth but yet i don't do a damn thing for her and it's just i'm not used to relationship like very few close relationships in my life in those relationships i think are pretty even and those people come to me and i go to them. And then there's this other thing over here where I think the other thing that throws me off a little bit about my therapist is that she could be a peer. because she's i think a year or two younger than i am. And so i guess it's in my experience. I've never been able to relate to a therapist because they've always been so much older than me and it just seems so far away and in this case i feel like i'm interacting with appear like if i met this woman at a party i think we would be friends. I need them to feel like they could be appear. You know what i mean. I don't know. I want them to let me ask them twenty mine. She knows in the beginning. Twenty questions like show me your belly turn. How do you have any sicknesses like shit. How's your husband doing that. I stand up and show me your belly but you know me.

GSMC Baseball Podcast Episode 515: The Nashville A's, Top Performers, Storylines of the Week

"Golden state concept baseball podcasts. We cover everything major league from spring training through the road seared. Got your favorite club. Cover from new york to boston to la. This is the golden state media. Concepts baseball podcast. Hello and welcome to another edition of jesus. Mcc baseball podcast brought to you by the gsm. see podcast network. I'm your host kevin. Mahala kid is thursday may thirteenth. Appreciate you guys tuning in. We got a fantastic episode lined up for you. Here hopefully had a great week so far we're cruising right along the middle of may already. It's crazy how time flies when you got baseball going on every day. Quality matchups crazy. Things happening out there. It's just a ton of fun to follow along and share the latest information with you guys out there so once again i love all you guys listening and i do appreciate chip tune an end so i can continue to have fun and talk baseball with you guys twice a week but we got a great show lined up for you here today. Of course we got news out of oakland to discuss. I know you guys have heard about it by now. But i'm going to give you my take on everything that's going on. We're then going to jump into our standard thursday weekly routine of checking in on the college game. What happened this past weekend. Any upsets any changes in the top. Twenty five what's happening out there. Let's dive in and check it out. Search then we're going to look at some of the league leaders across the board. Give you guys an update. It's been a couple weeks since we checked out who's leading the league in home runs average. Era win saves all of that good stuff and then at the end of the episode. Talk about the games this past week and ultimately we're staying in any great performances that have happened out there but looking at this oakland a.'s situation. It's honestly kinda fascinating. And i really think this is just a power play for a major league baseball because when i read the headline got me to thinking i mean how many teams have actually relocated in major league. Baseball history right off the top of my head. The big ones that come to mind or the brooklyn dodgers to the la dodgers. You got the milwaukee braves to the atlanta braves and of course the most recent one. The expos became the washington nationals. Nba and affiliates fan in the national league. East that one hit home. Because i watch the nationals. All the time right. I watched the nationals. Here tonight on wednesday. Blame my fight and fill so. I really wanted to do some research and figure out how many teams have actually relocated here in the past. And if it's a common occurrence across major league baseball or again if this is just baseball kind of wielding their power with the local government to say. Hey figure this out because we're actually not gonna move or just gonna put it out there into the news into the world so people hear this and start to get upset with you and you actually take some action on the legislation for the new stadium out there in oakland so doing some research of course the most recent one is in fact the expos becoming the nationals in two thousand and four they made this move citing poor attendance and a desire for a new ballpark but prior to that was actually the washington senators becoming the texas rangers. Back in one thousand nine hundred seventy one so really in fifty years. It's only happened one time. So if you're under the age of fifty you've only seen one organization relocates in baseball. A lot of this took place a long time ago before baseball. Popularity took off before there were tv contracts before there were radio contracts regional games national games before the game really became the money making machine that it is today. This is when teams were relocating. When attendance and being in person was really the only revenue stream. There wasn't a ton of merchandise being sold back then or at least not to the length that is today through fanatics and all the different websites. There where you can get some gear. So just looking at the history. I mean all the way back the philadelphia. Athletics became the kansas city athletics. The oakland athletics back in nineteen fifty. Four the new york giants became the san francisco. Giants the dodgers became the la dodgers and fifty seven. But since one thousand nine hundred sixty you've had the washington. Senators moved to minneapolis. The milwaukee braves become the atlanta braves and the seattle pilots become. The milwaukee brewers so again. This doesn't happen often right so it's not like you know they can reference. Hey we're gonna do this. The expos did and moved to washington if you guys. Don't you know figure things out and start to put some money together for this new ballpark. It really is in my estimation. Just more of a power play to kind of get the local government to say. Hey we're gonna put this out there so people are going to become upset at you and you're gonna start to get the wheels in motion voting on this new ballpark and what. I don't understand this if you go out and you. Google kind of renderings or drawings of this new ballpark. It certainly looks like a fantastic ballpark in the benefit of it to oakland is. It's not just going to be a baseball stadium. They're not just saying. Hey we need to build this facility just so our team. The oakland athletics can have a nicer place to play because the coliseum really is a dog hole. I mean it is not nice right. It's one of the oldest stadiums out. There used to be a multipurpose facility with the oakland raiders and now it is just baseball so it's not set up for everything that baseball needs or the best viewing experience of a baseball game. Like some of these new stadiums citizens bank. Pnc park where you can watch the game from any part of the stadium. Walk around the city in the background. Like none of these amenities are part of the current stadium out there at oakland so it really is just like come on guys. Why wouldn't you wanna do this. Especially like i mentioned because the drawings have an apartment complex attached to it. There's a local park area. That's going to be right around it so people could go to all the time. There's going to be a promise nod on the waterfront. So there's going to be shops and stores and restaurants and this would really bring a ton of economic value out there to oakland that they currently don't have right now now yes. It's going to cost the taxpayers decent amount of coin. But still i mean oakland right now is not a destination city for anybody out. There and a lot of this is due to other organizations. Leaving town right. I mentioned the raiders. Well they got up and left and paid a relocation v to go to las vegas. They just built the death star out there in las vegas. I mean. that's an awesome looking stadium so Their owner. Mr davis right. Al davis is son. Mark davis basically came out and say. I don't want to be rude but it's to be expected the city of oakland. We were trying to get a win win with the city of oakland. We couldn't get it done so it was just a matter of time until this came up once again with the. That's completely unfortunate again for the city right. So the raiders. Leave town then. You also have the golden state warriors who used to play in oakland and now they're the bay in san francisco. There's still the golden state warriors because it's the same area but there are no longer in oakland so you've had to professional sports teams. Leave your city. The only one you have left is the oakland a.'s. Who are actually a very good ballclub. Even though they're full of money. Bob not paying big time people because they don't have any money 'cause nobody goes to the game so this team that doesn't have any revenue stream somehow wins all the time still and you don't wanna put any money into them to make them even better right. Imagine a free agent destination of plane in a beautiful city. Beautiful bar park. You can live in the apartments right next door. You can go work out whenever you want your wife or girlfriend can go shopping on the waterfront. She can eat at five star restaurants with excellent chefs. I mean you would attract top talent with all the amenities locally there in oakland to it would also live in the area right it just the economic value. I don't understand kind of what the pushback and what the problem is. I mean the raiders. Leave the warriors leave now the as are threatening to leave and if they don't have that what. What is there to do in oakland. What's the reason to go visit. Oakland would just would be an area ride. Go okay if i'm on the west coast. Let's go check out that stadium. Let's go spend some money in the city of oakland. Let's go have a nice dinner and bring in some tourist attractions and satori individuals into your city to grow economically. I just. I don't understand why the city is taken so long to potentially vote on this and not realizing the benefits ultimately that would come from a potential new stadium shops park apartment complex. Just a beautiful beautiful area and beautiful drawings. You guys should google and check them out. So they're they're absolutely gorgeous right on the water there at oakland. So if they can't get it done and the as do have to relocate. The next question is okay. Where do they end up right. I talked to you guys last year during the pandemic when we were basically trying to figure out anything and everything to talk about twice a week since there wasn't actually baseball year ago at this point so i brought up the potential expansion cities in major league baseball. It's come out since commissioner bobby manfred. He basically said we're not gonna have an expansion team until the race and now the as get themselves new ballparks because again we're not gonna go expansion team. We're just going to relocate one of our teams if we can't get new ballparks. So where are the top five cities to potentially be relocated and the top five cities for expansion. Teams is pretty much the same list. I mean it's eerily similar when you look at some of the articles of people talking about of places that they think the as could end up and if you google expansion cities it's going to be very very similar list and at the top of the list of course is las vegas because las vegas is doing the opposite of oakland right. They've added to professional sports teams within the last five years. You have the oakland raiders. Who have come to town. And they're going to start their next year or this year. You know this coming fall in two thousand twenty one. It's going to be their first year in new city and then just a number of years ago you have the las vegas golden knights the. Nhl team recently came to town and in their first year. Coming off the expansion draft made it all the way to the stanley cup finals. And you have their their pre-game theatrics they almost put on a performance in a play for pre game and the stadium sold out. It's loud as heck. It's just an awesome atmosphere cities out. They're dying for these teams and you got cities like oakland. That are just like you know what we're just going to sit on it i it just. It doesn't make sense to me so las vegas. I would certainly put at the top of the list. They have the raiders to lean on to ask them how they kind of went about this. And what you know the top steps would be in relocating how to go about at all so if you wanna stay on the west coast. You also have las vegas. The next one on the list could be portland oregon. I mean portland's been out there. It's close to seattle where they have a rivalry within the division. There's also an established local effort out in portland to build a wad of waterfront stadium. So again the locals would welcome a new team out in portland and that would just be. You know a beautiful stadium. They got the trailblazers up there so they have a professional team but they're looking to add another one in soccer. They got a fantastic professional soccer team in portland so again. That city is just continuing to improve continuing to boom and it could be an option for the oakland a.'s. But you also have san jose out there right. You got the san jose sharks. They got the hockey team. It's right next to the san francisco giants. So that's a a rivalry that goes back and forth on the baseball side of things. And then you start to talk about the east coast where the expansion cities usually don't make as much sense for the oakland a.'s. But make more sense potentially for the raise if they were to relocate. Although i do wanna stay down there in florida but you have charlotte north carolina. That's one where a lot of people are saying. It could be up for a team. Come in here. You know the near future but the biggest one and the one that i think makes the most sense and one that i am just waiting for him with die. Go visit is nashville. Tennessee i mean nashville's got to get a major league baseball teams. There's already been a group of individuals pushing to get major league. Baseball into the city of nashville. This group includes the likes of justin timberlake. Even dave dombrowski until he took the phillies general manager job. It was rumored that he wasn't going to be a gm because he was trying to get together people to to get team in nashville and then ultimately that started to fall through. It looked like it was a little bit further out than they had anticipated so he ended up taking the phillies job. But there is money and powerful individuals behind a potential move to nashville for major league baseball teams and man. If you put that right there on main street right on broad street in nashville the also have the nashville predators hockey team. That's been very good there. The tennessee titans. The nfl team is based right. Outside of nashville. So you have multiple professional sports teams. We saw the nfl draft be held in nashville last year or the year. Before i get mixed up now. Dallas was in their nashville. I think may have even been three years ago. At this. Point for nashville. Just doodoo corona virus shutdown last year but the amount of people that were there supporting that. It's just a a raucous town a crowd. You got all the country stars. You got big name. There's just a ton of economic value going on in nashville. Where i think they get a baseball team sooner than later but some outside of the box potential cities i mean. I've seen rumors on the internet of salt lake city. You got the jazz out there. There's a lot of minor league baseball out. In the state of utah. They'd be looking to bring in a professional team. They feel like they'd support it. A lot of people would go for the jazz. They've always had trouble attracting top talent. Because what is there to do in salt lake. You know basically everybody says you gotta pay everybody a lot of extra money to play for the jazz. And i don't think major league baseball's looking for that type of organization out there as well and then you see the city of montreal as well again. They lost the expos to washington. And they're looking to get another canadian team. Potentially back into the fold. You got toronto. But that's about it. Of course the nhl multiple nhl teams. So get more baseball up into canada now again. Corona virus complicates things. But hopefully that'll be over sooner than later and we can figure that out with canada. Us going back and forth and not having kind of quarantine for two weeks out of time here but truly at the end of the day. I think the as stay in oakland. I think the city figures it out because they can't lose their third and final professional sports team. But since it's happened twice already. I it wouldn't surprise me if ultimately they go that direction but i do think they would stay out west. I think portland san jose one of those cities out on the west coast makes the most sense. So baseball doesn't have to reshuffle the divisions and kind of keep some continuity within the sport itself moving forward. But what do you guys think. Do you think the as we're gonna stay out there or do you think they ultimately move a comment of what city you think they end up in. I've loved to hear from you on ultimately what you think. The end conclusion is to this latest drama with the as the city of oakland and major league baseball. But that'll do it here for segment number one of the mcc baseball podcast brought to you by the mc podcast network. I'm your host kevin mahalick. We'll step aside here now for a word from one of our sponsors and one of our sisters shows but when we come back. We're going to talk college baseball. Stick around everyone.

Ncaa regional host options will be unveiled either thursday or friday of this week so the championship oversight panel is going to take look and limited down to twenty to ultimately get to the potential sixteen here in the next couple of days. So that'll be big time news to see which teams are going to be hosting the regionals here and moving forward but before we get into the top twenty five.

So do me a favor hit that little blue bird. That little twitter icon on your iphone android. Wherever you're at and give us a follow. I certainly appreciate it. But looking at the top twenty five now the top of the list the top to remain unchanged we got the arkansas razorbacks at number one. They went to and one last week so they remain the top team. They took two out of three against georgia next up. They'll face tennessee. And what is number one versus number four matchup so spoiler alert. Tennessee is number four. They went three and last week. They move up from number five to number four after a sweep at missouri. So they'll now face off in what will be a fantastic. Sec matchup this coming weekend. I mean the sec. Just gives you know weekends off. How many times. How many weeks in a row. I talked to you guys saying that doe wants playing three to play in four seven verses eleven whatever it may be the sec just continues to put out fantastic baseball series. So if you guys aren't following along yet do yourself a favor checkout that. Sec network and you're gonna watch some of the best college baseball there is to offer because right now one through four. All in the sec. Number two is vanderbilt's they there after a two in one weekend. They took two out of three against alabama or two zero against alabama and then one game got cancelled due to inclement weather. So they swept alabama and a two-game series. And next up. They'll take on ole miss the running rebels. They'll travel to old miss this weekend. And now there's only two weeks left in the regular season here so only two more series to potentially catch Some of the best baseball before ultimately we head to the postseason we had to regionals the number three team mississippi state bulldogs they went. Let's see three and one this past week. They were able to win another conference series that south carolina so they took the first two before ultimately losing game three by score of four to three and then now return home to face missouri. This upcoming weekend the big twelve then shows up here in the next couple of teams being ranked five six and seven all come from via the big twelve. Texas the longhorns. They're the first ones at number five. They went three and one last week. They move up from number six up to number five. They've been on a winning streak. They did win two out of three against tcu so five. Six played this past weekend as tcu is the sixth ranked team but texas will take on west virginia. They'll have themselves the weekend off this weekend before finishing up the conference slate versus west virginia. In a couple of weekends. Like i said. Tcu they fall from number three to number six. After dropping the weekend series to texas and texas is now the top ranked team in the big twelve. Tcu will go out of conference to face. Louisiana monroe before wrapping up the conference slate against kansas state's in a couple of weeks the seventh ranked team the texas tech red raiders. They only played one game this past week. They move up from number eight to number seven they dealt with some covert issues against illinois chicago so they didn't play that series. They did win a week game against oklahoma and they now have three more coming up against oklahoma. That was a makeup game on tuesday. And they'll now travel to oklahoma to face the sooners this weekend and wrap up the conference against kansas a weekend later. The eighth ranked team. You got the notre dame irish. They fall from number seven to number eight after a one and two weekend. They lost the series to florida state. Who's been playing better baseball of late. And now they'll finish up. They got this weekend off and they'll finish up at virginia tech next weekend to finish up their acc slate. A few teams have this weekend off as some other teams have to catch up on the schedule from games that have been cancelled earlier on but a number nine. You got the florida gators florida. They moved up from ten to number nine after a three in one week. They were able to win their series at kentucky. And they'll face georgia this next upcoming weekend before wrapping up at arkansas. So arkansas continues to just run the gauntlet and stay at number one very impressive. They're in the sec. The oregon ducks in number ten. They're up from number eleven after having themselves a three week. They swept the washington over the weekend. They'll now face utah coming up here. As the pac ten pac twelve has a couple more weeks left in the regular season. They go through. The end of may while some of the other conferences were able to start earlier and wrap things up here sooner rather than later and number eleven you got the east carolina pirates. They move from number thirteen to number eleven had themselves a three in one week this past week as they took three out of four against two lane though now travel to cincinnati before finishing up at south florida so eight road games to end the year for these carolina. And that'll be a tough stretch here. As they wrap up their schedule the stanford garden will continue to climb. They're all the way up to number twelve from number sixteen after a two. In one week they were able to win a series against arizona as well as a victory against san jose state during the week here they face carolina for four games. They're not carolina california for four games coming up here this weekend as again. Pac twelve has three more conference series remaining before finishing up their schedule. Arizona is the thirteenth ranked team. They fall from number nine to number thirteen after a two and two week. So a tough stretch there. They lost two out of three to stanford as well as midweek lost during the week and now face washington coming off a series loss. Arizona will look to get back on track against washington louisiana tech. They are currently number fourteen. They remain fourteen after only playing two games this past week. They had some covert issues. Not sure if it was in within their program. Whoever they were facing off against as well as some weather complications they lost a week. Game against lsu but they'll know have four games against utsa texas san antonio and then Couple at old dominion before they wrap up here. In the next couple of weeks the louisville cardinal they will be number fifteen here in the rankings. They they stay at fifteen from last week as well. let's see. They went three and one this past weekend in the acc. They took two of three against duke. And also beep. Vanderbilt's during the week last week so a nice win by louisville against vanderbilt travel to north carolina to face off against the tar heels. Says they have two weekends. Remaining in the acc schedule the pitt panthers. A number sixteen they actually climbed in the rankings. After only going to to this past week tough stretch for them but still based on everybody else around them able to climb. They took two out of three against boston college and had a loss to west. Virginia non-conference lost to west. Virginia mixed in there as they will now return home to face. Nc state and their next conference matchup before wrapping up at wake forest both of those series winnable for the pitt panthers as they look to host a regional series here for the first time in a long time in program history. The florida state seminoles. They're up from number. Eighteen to number seventeen. They went to and one again. Took the series over. Florida gulf coast and notre dame this past week. They had a makeup series against florida gulf coast. But take two out of three over nortre dame allowed them to climb the rankings and then now face off against clemson at home this weekend in a nice match up always a lot of fun when florida state and clemson get together. Doesn't matter whether it's baseball football whatever sport it is it's always fun to watch those teams go at it and number eighteen. You have old miss. They fall from number twelve to eighteen after a two and two week so they were one of the biggest losers this past week they lost the series against texas a and m. and also had some trouble during their midweek games and they will now face off against number two vanderbilt. It will be at home. Adult miss to these games will be on the sec network. So like i mentioned you guys out there who get the network. Make sure to tune into that one as they have vanderbilt in georgia left on the schedule there at old miss and number nineteen you have southern miss their up from number twenty another good week for them. They went four and one against. Let's see here middle tennessee state. They swept middle tennessee state. In four games there was also a no hitter. Thrown by walker powell on saturday nights first game or saturday i guess days first game before the night action but a six nothing victory and a no hitter for walker powell being thrown a fantastic weekend for southern miss and You know. I always find myself rooting for southern miss. Even though when we played them back in my day in college they kick the living crap out of us. They beat us up pretty good scores of eighteen to three fifteen to six or whatever it was but i was a lot of fun. It was a great place to play a fantastic atmosphere so i always end up rooting for them here. A little bit. Even though. I probably should have some hard feelings left. In the tank charlotte's they moved back up from twenty three to twenty. They had themselves a foreign a week. And there are twenty two and six in conference usa play this year. They swept marshall this past weekend in moving forward there. I have four games at rice here this weekend and should be a nice test as rice. Usually a pretty solid ball club down there. Out of the state of texas. Indiana comes in at number twenty one the first big ten team in the ranking series. The indiana hoosiers. They're up from number twenty four to twenty one after three and one week. Twenty three and ten overall and twenty three intended conference as again. The big ten is only playing conference. Folks they took two games against rutgers split against nebraska. And they now have three games at michigan. Coming up. sunday's game we'll be on. Espn two so if you don't get the sec network and you still wanna watch some college baseball tune into espn two on sunday. You'll see indiana and michigan going at it but michigan's been ranked earlier this year. They've fallen out after a tough stretch but the first big ten team coming in at number twenty one. I really goes to show a bit of a down year. They're in the north conference up in big ten and just the acc are running the college baseball world and number twenty two. You have gonzaga. They fall from twenty one to twenty two after having the week off due to covert issues. They had their games against oregon postponed as well. They're scheduled to play portland this next weekend. But who knows if they'll make up some games from conference play because it's been since the end of april since they've played so gonzaga having trouble getting their games played due to some covert protocol going on within the within the program. And that's a tough break for gonzaga and number twenty three. Ucla they're up from twenty five to twenty three after a two in one week. They're fourteen and ten overall impact. Ten play they took two out of three against washington state. Next up they will go out of conference to face. Uc santa barbara before coming back into conference. The last two weekends to face cow as well as arizona state and number twenty four you have uc irvine there in the rankings. Here i believe for the first time they were not ranked this past week. But when three and one out in the big west conference twenty nine and fifteen overall twenty one in seven in the big west conference as they swept took. Three out of four from uc santa barbara. So a nice weekend there. They had split with long beach state the weekend prior and they also have three series left they'll face uc riverside field and then wrap things up with cal state fullerton at the end of the month to conclude their schedule and then number twenty five the south carolina gamecocks they fall from nineteen down to twenty five had themselves at two and two week and they're now twelve twelve overall in the sec. So bit of a down year for the gamecocks but still in the top twenty five as they lost two out of three to mississippi state but of course mississippi state a top five team so not the worst series there to get two out of three but the loss at clemson during the middle of the week is will really mark them down they will travel to kentucky for three games and then wrap things up with a top five team in tennessee at the end of their schedule the only team that dropped out of the rankings. This week old dominion they fall from twenty two to the land of unranked as they went to in two. There are thirty three and thirteen overall but a tough stretch here of late as they split with. Utsa one game one loss games two and three before ultimately salvaging is split in game four. They have four games coming up this weekend with western kentucky and then two games with louisiana tech to wrap up their schedule so overall the sec continues to reign supreme the top four teams. Then you got the big twelve at five six seven before the acc starts to sprinkle in as well as the pac ten and those teams certainly seem like the top conferences. But jack out the sec network check out the family of espn and you're gonna start seeing more college baseball as we ryan things down. Here as the end of the regular season becomes.

There's about twenty five different shows so whatever it is you're into we got you covered here within the umbrella. The podcast network. But let's look at some individual stats. It's been a minute since i've talked to you guys about some individuals. Some league leaders some surprises. What's happening out there across the board here recording this late on wednesday the twelfth so there could be some changes if somebody goes down town. I don't know four or five times on the west coast here. Maybe these fluctuate but as of now these look like the stats heading into thursday the thirteenth. Your league leader in home runs is nobody other than ronald a kunia. He's got eleven so far this year. He is in sole possession of first place. He's gotten out here recently. He now has eleven but the next part of the list. Those are the guys. I thought i didn't know a kunia was at the top of the list and obviously having a fantastic year. I didn't think he was all the way to eleven. But there are four guys tied in second place with ten starting off with j. d. martinez. He's been hot all year long. Of course he continues to rake. He continues to be excellent for the red sox. You also have shohei ohtani shohei. Ohtani what can you say about this guy. There's so many stats are records being broken and honestly i take some of them with a grain of salt right because you see all these tweets always the first guy since one thousand nine hundred eight since nineteen twenty since one thousand nine hundred ten to have ten home runs and ten plus strikeouts in a game or this that and the third and it's like yeah obviously nobody hits and pitches at the major league level. So i mean do i take it as yeah. This guy is excellent. He's doing both very well here early on in the season yes of course i mean he's got ten home runs to fifty seven twenty six. Rbi's he's also pitching quite well but just people who tweet out. He's the first guy with ten home runs in ten plus strikeouts the history of baseball since nineteen. Whatever it's like. Yeah i mean come on. We haven't seen the guy do this and one hundred years so of course he is right. Like i don't want to take anything away from shohei but just some of them. I do chuckle. Because i'm like yeah. Nobody does both so. Of course he's the first guy since babe ruth. Nobody's done both since world war. Two so of course. It's going to be the first time since the thirties. This has happened. I mean come up with a statistic pitching in hitting twenty home runs twenty whatever and it's going to be the first time since somebody did it since babe. Ruth's era when they actually went both ways so he is a ton of fun to watch. Don't get me wrong. I'm not taking a shot at him anyway. But i'm just saying the people on twitter. Stop stop acting like you're flex in your muscles because you're saying oh look ridiculous stat about shohei just take a deep breath grabbing adult beverage sitting on the couch and watch the guy play because he is absolutely entertaining. And he's filthy on the mound. He's crushing baseball's. So stop trying to tweet out since one thousand nine five this this and this and just watch the game and enjoy yourself because the kids a ton of fun to watch you. Gotta jose ramirez. Ten home runs also tied with second and then one of the surprises. I also have mitch haniger. The right fielder for the seattle mariners with ten home runs here early on. He's at the top of the list there. In second place in certainly wouldn't have put any money on mitch haniger being potentially at the top of this list when the year started. You got a lot of guys with nine home runs. It looks like let's see here. Ten guys with nine home runs just running through the list. kris bryant. Hey zeus aguilar byron. Buxton nick castellanos nelson cruz. Rafael devers freddie freeman. All the way up to nine home runs a dullest garcia down in texas. Jean carlos stanton fernando tatis junior and then even more with eight home runs as we continue down. But you're legally right now. Ronaldo kunia the leader in the clubhouse with eleven as we head here to thursday the thirteenth. Who's leading the league in rb. Is that would be jd martinez. He's got thirty two. He is one ahead of jose abreu in. Hey zeus aguilar. So i down to miami starting to figure things out and having himself goodyear offensively so far nine home runs thirty one. Rbi hidden to ninety three starting to come around. He's also got sixteen walks to twenty one strikeouts that's one of the better ratios they. You'll see for a power hitter at the top of the list here. Jose abreu like i said martinez leading it. And then you got three guy or two guys with thirty rafael devers l. For houston down there doing a nice job in the middle of that lineup. and then you start to taper off trae man. Seaney with twenty nine jared walsh of course who is the reason why our pools no longer owns the first base position out there at anaheim having a good year or hidden. Let's see three twenty eight with seven home runs in twenty nine. Rbi's is randolph. Greet chuck with twenty eight mitch. Haniger twenty seven. David peralta out in arizona with twenty seven. And those are your top ten guys here in the list of rbi's let's look at triple sev- we had a lotta triples yet. David peralta arizona's five. He's at the top of the list. And then you got four guys with three next akil due out in detroit the rookie out there still having himself a good year is average is back down but three triple showing off. The speed nikki lopez. The shortstop for kansas city has three chris owings second baseman for the rockies. And chris taylor the center fielder for the dodgers each with three. So you got five guys with at least three triples here offensively when it comes to doubles kris. Bryant leads the league with fourteen. He's one ahead of brian reynolds. The left fielder for the pittsburgh pirates. Who has thirteen nolan air. Nado and michael brantley each with twelve and then a handful of guys with eleven. Mookie betts. sandra bogart's raphael diverse. adam frazier. Who was recently got no. He's still there. Was the other frazier was cut by the pirates. And got into todd. Frazier got into it with the media out there in pittsburgh uriel cedric mullins and jorges layer each with eleven. Rb is on the year the most hits this year. That goes zander. bogart's about teammates at the top of the list. Bogart says forty six and j. d. martinez says forty five on the year. They are one and two in the league. Cedric mullins from baltimore also has forty five yuri with forty four. And adam frazier with forty three as the top five in hits for the year runs scored on a kunia thirty two jd. Martinez thirty one. And then bobishenko makes it on the list for the first time with twenty nine runs scored leading the league and walk so far. Max muncie out there in. La with thirty six walks as monte grin grondahl has twenty nine and then carlos santana and kansas city continues to have a great eye at the plate with twenty eight. Now strike outs. This is kind of the opposite. You don't want to be at the top of this list. But joey gallo fifty strikeout. So far this year he continues to swing and miss at an outrageous clip. You also have. Mac chapman with fifty two and then go. Rhino suarez with fifty out there in cincinnati. Stolen bases wit. Mary field leads the league with eleven so far for the kansas city royals and you have ramon lorraina. Oh the center fielder for the as with eight and a lot of guys with seven following him up. Who's winning the batting title. So far we got your mind mercedes. Still at the top of the list hitting three seventy six. of course. He had an eight eight stretch early on so that had him at the top of the list but he is backed down to three seventy six. He's leading the american league ahead of mike trout. Who is at three fifty five yard and alvarez at three forty seven zander bogart's at three thirty three and then on the national league side of things jesse winkler has himself a really big lead currently. He's in three seventy so one point behind mercedes by leading the national league in the next guy in the national league is trade turner all the way down at three eighteen. Jt rio mutoko coming in third at three fourteenth so a catcher their third on the list and the national league mike trout leads the league in eleven fifty had the top of the list at eleven. O one you got jesse winkler and then chris. Brian at ten fifty rounded a kunia. Ten forty three anything over a thousand is certainly fantastic as those guys currently lead the league so quite a few names that you've seen on there a few other guys have sprinkled in but seems to be the usual cast of characters leading the league offensively now when it comes to the pitching side of things. You're era leaders. Jacob degrom he at point six eight and it is fascinating and he's got six starts. He's got five decisions in those six starts. He's three and two so he's got two losses with a point six eight era. i mean. how does that happen. He's giving up three earned runs and only six total rut. So it's not like he's got a ton of unearned runs also scoring against him. He's given up six runs in six starts total and the guy's got two losses. I mean picking up new york. Mets offense you guys are killing jacob. Degrom this guy should be twenty and two every year and he's three and to hear through the middle of may allowing six total runs. Only three of them earned in forty innings pitched the opponents are hitting one twenty eight off the guy and somehow the other team has won two games. While he's been in there just fascinating. John means for baltimore second in the league in. Era fantastic for john. Of course he had the no hitter thrown last week but he has four. No with a one to one as giving up seven runs in fifty two winnings this year just tremendous tremendous story for. John means here garrett kohl's next to a one three seven era he's giving up eight earned runs and fifty. Two and two thirds of an inning brandon would drift one six four trevor rogers down in miami one eight nine matthew boyd in detroit. While he's pitched himself onto the markets. I mean they tried to trade him last year. Couldn't get anything for him because of how bad he was but he's certainly going to get moved this year with a one nine four he. Ra in forty one innings. danny duffy. A one nine four. Era and then kevin guzman at one nine seven as you have eight guys with an era under to here when it comes to the starting staffs who leads the league victories. That would be jack flaherty. He's six in. Oh for saint louis with a two eight three erin savelli has five wins garrett cole. Five clayton kershaw five. Stephen matt says five. Nick pa- vada five and three one ninety. Ra for boston. They certainly have one. That trade with the philadelphia phillies. He was never that good in philadelphia. Carlos road don five zero and guadagno rodriguez coming back off a year where he missed. Cove it at five in one and of course. Boston has the most victories. So ten between bavaria and rodriguez fantastic start for the red sox pitching staff. Let's see here. Who leads the league in saves as we continue down. That's mark milan-san out in san diego. He is twelve twelve on save. Opportunities has yet to blow a save. Ian kennedy down in texas is ten for ten. He's been fantastic for the rangers. Jake mcgee out in san francisco. He's got ten saves and eleven. Chances and alex rodriguez for saint. Louis also has ten saves so good start there for the bullpen guts. Shane bieber leads. The league in innings pitched at fifty five through eight starts. You got a handful of guys over. Fifty zack wheeler garrett cole john means and trevor bauer have all hit the fifty start mark here and the twenty twenty one season or fifty mark and the amount of home runs allowed. Mike fulton ovett's he's allowed the most with eleven tied with kyle hendricks who seems to be broken for the cubs. He's got a six to three. Era patrick corbin. Also broken for the nationals. Ten home runs seven three six. Era in six starts so that signing does not look good for washington here a few few a man a few years into it. Strike out your league leader garrett cole or no he's second actually shane. Bieber has passed him with eighty five in fifty five innings and eight starts garrett cole has seventy eight n eight. Starts tyler glass now third. On the list was seventy-five his slider has been absolutely filthy. This year driver. Bauer was sixty seven. And then jacob degrom with sixty five there on that list and then lastly average against jacob degrom at the top one twenty eight freddie peralta the next to be in brewers peralta and woodruff one forty two and one forty four certainly impressive tyler glass now. One forty six and wade miley teams only hitting one. Forty seven off of wade miley and of course a no hitter over. Twenty seven outs certainly helps that That go away down when it comes to the batting average but those are your stats right. Those are your league leaders across the board. Hopefully some some of you guys listening. Learn something or updated out there. Hopefully you guys enjoyed that. But we'll step aside here one last time with mcc baseball podcast for word from one of our sponsors and one of our sisters shows when we come back. Let's look at the standings. Let's talk baseball. What's going on out there this week. Stick around find out. Want to know the latest and soccer. That listened to the golden state media concepts soccer podcasts from m. l. s. the world premier league. We've got you covered a latest update hottest matches news on the league's top players. It's the golden state media concept soccer. Podcasts listen again and welcome back to the fourth and final segment of the gmc. Baseball podcast brought to you by the gsm. See podcast network. Let's jump right into it. It took it till may twelfth may. Eleventh may tenth. Whatever it is this past week but we're finally dealing with the covid. Nineteen virus corona virus is poking its ugly head out once again here causing some issues across major league baseball fernando tat tatis. Junior has well as will myers to stars of the padres tested positive for covid nineteen earlier this week as well as three other position players serbian-held indefinitely as they undergo. Mlb's contact tracing protocols. These two were put on the list. Tuesday night as myers was removed from the game in the third inning because he got notified of his test in the third inning. So one things fascinating how. We still don't have the timing figured out. How before the game. We know these guys tested positive prior to the start of the game. It's still in the middle of the game before we're getting these results you would think. Baseball is figuring out when to test these guys to get the results back before the guy has a couple at bats in the game and ultimately comes back with a positive but both eyes are a symptomatic inner feeling okay according to san diego's manager so that's a positive but again the padre shorthanded here for the next couple of days ultimately maybe ten days minimum of ten days. They're required to stay on. There could be activated sooner but they gotta have multiple negative tests and pass a series of protocols and the guys who were in contact tracing have to do the same so just a tough break for the padres here early on as again. They're one of the. I team hit where some of their star players have been hit with the virus as well. I mean myers in peace in the middle of that lineup. So it's gonna be a tough week and a half year for the padres without those two guys and the padres aren't the only team dealing with virus issues. You also have the new york yankees who find themselves in the middle of outbreak but it seems to be within the coaching staff. Not so much the player side of things but the staff side of things prior to wednesday's game the manager aaron boone confirmed that seven staff members at tested positive for covid nineteen. Now the yankees have voted and they are still going to take the field and they're gonna play here wednesday thursday friday as long as things don't continue to spread but it has been acknowledged that third base coach phil devon first base coach. Reggie willits as well as pitching coach. Mack blake have tested positive for the virus and this is a bit of an interesting one with new york because the new york department of health is also starting to look into these cases because all seven members who tested positive have have taken. These single dose johnson and johnson vaccine. Now six of the seven staff members are symptomatic which is part of the vaccine right so the fact seen isn't one hundred percent effective of not allowing you to get the virus but if you do get the virus you are ase symptomatic and avoid hospitalization and avoid the severity of the disease. Now again are antecedents reports that they had tested positive after the fact seen the d. o. H. is investigating these to determine if they meet the formal. Cbc definition of a vaccine breakthrough again breakthrough cases are expected. Vaccines are effective in our critical tool to bring the pandemic under control. However they're not one hundred percent of preventing illness and there's a small percentage of people who are fully vaccinated who will still get sick but again six out of seven are a symptomatic so they are looking into it. But it's certainly a story line to kind of keep an eye out on again. They basically said and major league baseball. You hit i believe it was eighty. Five percent of your team is fully vaccinated. They ease up on some of the restrictions. I think you're allowed to eat out at restaurants. You're allowed to go out have a bit more freedom. So that's of the incentives for teams to get vaccinated is to not have to sit in quarantine and your hotel on the road here but just an interesting story. There for the yankees. Meanwhile shortstop gleyber torres says. He won't play wednesday due to an abundance of caution. They didn't get specifics into why he's gonna be out but he's quote unquote fine. He had the disease in december has since been vaccinated but it just sounds like he'd be uncomfortable taking the field with everything going on around ten. Let's see bouncing around. What else is going on. Miguel cabrera is now tops. In major league baseball for hits for player he is fifth inning. Rbi single here. On wednesday nights was his two thousand. Eight hundred and seventy eighth hit of his major league baseball career. Moving him past omar vizquel for forty third on the all-time hits list and the most by venezuelan born major leaguer. Miguel cabrera has already the venezuelan-born major league leader with four hundred eighty nine home runs one thousand seven hundred thirty five. Rbi's thousand four hundred and sixty one runs scored and five hundred eighty two doubles. So basically he is just. He's the top venezuelan-born player in the history of baseball. I mean when you look at it like that now as the most hits home runs runs scored in doubles or at least the best offensive venezuelan-born player you could argue defensively. Of course omar. Vizquel was a magician out there defensively but the offensive mastery of omar vizquel and miguel cabrera. Just passing him for hit so next up on the list would be mel ott who currently sits forty third and he could potentially be caught by cabrera next but shadow to miguel cabrera passing omar vizquel the top venezuelan venezuelan-born player with the most hits and major league baseball history. Next we got the seattle mariners. They ushered in a new era. They called up. A couple of their kids was finally. Jared kalinic day. He finally got the call up again. This off season we talked about how the former president general manager ceo. Whatever his title was said that they're gonna keep him down to manipulate service time which again he is going to fight it. He may actually win this time. Kris bryant fought the cubs a few years back but there was no hard evidence that said they manipulated his time. Well when you have a guy on tape saying yeah that's exactly what we're doing. You have a bit more of a case to potentially win that argument and court. So jared got the call up. He finally made his debut as well as logan gilbert. They were both starting against cleveland here this week. So it'll be a fascinating time to be a mariners fan as both of those guys will make their major league debut coming up here. This week so seattle mariners. Your team's pretty solid this year and they're calling up the kids as well so it's an exciting time to be a mariners fan now when it comes to negative news. We have to talk about the houston. Astros starting pitcher jose. Your tweedy was removed from tuesday's game after only three and two thirds with a right posterior shoulder discomfort as of now. He's day today but they're certainly going to look at and get an mri to see. What what lingering offense there could be an ultimately if he's gonna miss more time there was also a report pain cleveland that the indians have made extension offers. Shane bieber the past two spring trainings but bieber turn both of those down. He is still under team. Control through two thousand twenty four via arbitration. So basically cleveland trying to do by out his remaining three years or two years of arbitration and probably a couple of years into free agency but bieber looking at the market looking at Trevor bauer getting forty. Forty five million a year. I mean that contracts going to be what fifty million a year and three years if he continues to deal like he has so there's no incentive for him to kinda jump the gun and buy out some of that free agency time as well as he's a client of rosenhaus sports representations so drew rosenhaus we know represents the top guys and it's going to be tough to get him under contract so don't look for him to sign any deals. I mean aaron nola signed a deal for forty five million over four years a fifth year club option bought out his arbitration years and it looks like a good deal for the phillies as things. Continue to move forward here. But shane beaver. Certainly doesn't seem like he's on that same track. Moving forward finally a story. We gotta talk about drew robinson. A gentleman who we spoke about in the past. He returned to baseball after a suicide attempt. Just over a year ago. Well he hit a home run and a triple eight game for the sacramento river. Cats they're the triple a affiliate of the san francisco giants and the guys only got one. I i mean he's playing baseball with one i. It's hard enough to hit with two is in today's game. I mean you see that with the averages being what to thirty four for the year so drew robinson doing it with one eye able to go yard in aaa game showing that he can still play he can still hit. And this isn't just feel bad for the guy story. He's still playing. He's still got some game left in them and just a tremendous story. So little caveat anybody out there dealing with mental illness just call somebody reach out to somebody say something. Of course we're all dealing with it with the pandemic trying to figure out our place in life as us millennials skies in the ages of twenty thirty dealing with some stuff we've never dealt with before man. Just just reach out to somebody because stories like this. They're tough to read tough to talk about but just wanted to give a shout out to robinson was able to fight his way back and ultimately have a very positive moment of going yard in aaa game so next. We're starting to hear rumors of trevor story. Being traded which we all expect to happen of course iraqi's interim gm after letting him go trading. Nado trevor story is going to be on the move. I mean they're in the basement and the nfl west. He's gonna leave in free agency so there's no reason to hang onto him. So who are the best fits right now for Trevor story moving forward. Well there's a couple of names out there that are starting to be floated around. Of course she got the new york. Yankees anytime atop players floated around the yankees seemed to be involved and of course they got gleyber torres at shortstop right now but some scouts scouts potentially believe that torres is better suited for second base. I mean they moved door there at second base but they have the eighteenth ranked farm system. They're top prospects are probably untouchable. But that could be an option for trevor story. You also got the oakland ace. I mean they've been getting horrible production from the shortstop position after marcus. Simeon left elvis andrus and fa male sean have combined for a three ninety seven s so Average plus slugging or on base plus slugging three ninety-seven just a horrible horrible man. That is bad. I didn't realize it was that bad in oakland so they got the twenty sixth ranked farm system. So may not have the ammunition to go. Get him but they could certainly use him offensively. The milwaukee brewers are solid landing spot there twenty twenty-six than baseball with runs scored dealing with some injuries christian yelich Jackie bradley jr. and he also underperforming. He also got issues at shortstop. Louis sharia struggling out there so they could potentially look to booster that offense with that pitching staff holding them in contention there in the nfl central you also got the cincinnati reds in that division. They're hanging in there. Despite kind of up and down start at we know swore as is struggling for them so they could move Story into that shortstop spot. They got the twentieth ranked farm system. So that could be an option. And then lastly the tampa bay race. Willie adama joey wendell. They've struggled at the shortstop spots. They got a top ranked farm system in major league baseball. So they certainly have the ammunition to get a deal done. But it'll be interesting to see where story ends up as things continue here over the month of may and june teams kind of jockey for position and ultimately who's in the spot to make a move but looking at the standing tear briefly as we wrap up today's episode and the american league east the yankees continued to stay hot. They've won four in a row and since we last talked the red sox have dropped three straight so the yankees are only a game back in the american league east now with the blue jays also right there at nineteen and sixteen so all three teams was sixteen losses. The red sox with twenty two wins the yankees with twenty in the blue jays with nineteen all could potentially be tired as they finish their makeup games and the american league central. The white sox moved into first place with four straight wins. There are half a game over the indians who have bounced back to win three straight in our eight and two over their last ten. So they're separating themselves as well as the royals that hotstar that good start all for not. They've lost ten in a row and they are now sixteen and nineteen so struggled coming here for the royals out west. You got the athletics in the astros over. Five hundred seattle right at five hundred after losing three straight at eighteen and eighteen so in the american league you got boston chicago and oakland at the top of their divisions with the wildcard teams right now being the yankees and indians with the astros in blue jays. Hot on their heels and the national league. The mets lead the national league east. They've won seven straight. They are now eighteen thirteen after being eleven thirteen the phillies have won two in a row. So they're a game back at three games over five hundred in the national league central. You have the cardinals at the top of the division at twenty two and fifteen. The brewers solely two games behind them at twenty and seventeen. And then out west the giants. They continue to play fantastic baseball.

Ep. 206: 2020/21 Olympics: So Many Questions, So Few Answers

"What's up y'all is juicy. And i've teamed up with mountain dew to produce a hilarious new basketball podcast called the on jersey. Learn the back of your favorite ballers and celebrities like jamal murray. Did you have like a favorite team was the represented tom marino was the raptors even started on the top tomorrow. Oh fifty. Taylor rose asia wilson and many more. You won't want to miss this. Listen to the do zone. Withdrew ski on apple podcasts. Spotify wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to burn it. All down the feminists sports podcast. You need. I'm amirah and this week. I'm joined with jessica and charene. We're going to be talking about the olympics because yes there are still questions. Yes it's allegedly still happening. Yes it feels like. There's a lot going on there We'll unpack it a bit and get into where we're at in terms of the olympic games can't establish in my mind. What is fair here. And i think there's no answer is unsatisfying thing. I think it is unfair to japan to hold these games. And i think it is unfair to a lot of these athletes. Who of course we're going to be burning some things and lifting up some torchbearers who are lighting the way to a better sporting feature but before we dive into all of that. I have to tell you about my favorite video. That i saw this past weekend In the midst of another glazer's out protest. That was much more tapered down this week. And before the man you Game there's so many people on the ground reporters talking about the buses arriving and they're giving these live action shots and there's this one shot that you have to go find where the buses are arriving and then in the midst of this to people riding a bike one bike is like a basket and in the basket is just this poodle and they all look absolutely bewildered by what they have just rolled into the randomest video bombing appearance that i've ever seen. I'm just calling it. Manchester poodle made me chuckle. But it also made me think. What was the randomness thing you've ever seen in or around a sporting match because as soon as i saw that poodle made me. Think of that parrot at that penn state women's soccer match. I don't know like i was like. Is that a parent. It was apparent on a leash. Who was the pair of jordan. Ken s grandfather. Who had driven this from new york to state college on a leash to watch jordan's game that she couldn't play you told her easy l. so it was just there observing being an unofficial mascot. It was the randomest thing i've ever seen like the poodle. It was also hilarious. And kind of q so. I wanted to know if you guys have random things that came to mind. I love to this question. So much loved the when. Amir put at our whatsapp group. Because i was obsessed with this parrot but i ended up going down a rabbit hole. Because you know. That's how i do and around just forty match one of the things. I love our pitching bidders whether they're humans or I'm not interested in the naked white men. That seemed to do that a lot but i was really interested in animals like there's a compilation of like squirrels in cats and then these professional footballer sending going how do we pick up a squirrel or pigeon because a pigeons are like really bad ass which is so funny. I just realized that you said pitch invaders. 'cause i really thought you said pigeon baiter to pitch invaders. I was like exactly how this ass got it pitch invaders. Sorry i just. I love all of that. Like i. Love how they struggle with picking up a pigeon because picking up a pin is a little more complicated than we think it is but my favorite thing in less. You're a pigeon. I think it seems very complicated. What i would do you covered. I feel like we should do that. Next get together is fries okay. Now my favorite thing is watching a tooth from a two thousand fourteen match. I believe it was a qualifier. was a brazil playing south africa and there was a little boy who ran on the pitch he ran over. And then you see like they're called the stewards who are monitoring the games and trying to prevent and it's this little beautiful boy who's probably around five or six years old and he wants to run towards neymar junior and he's he gets stopped and he's frightened because all these men are running at him and so then neymar goes on and he picks them up and then they get a photo and david louise's taking a photo of them and it's just it's a happy thing he's a little kid who was starstruck and it's beautiful and that's actually my favorite thing. That's vague cute. Jessica i had a hard time answering this. I just feel like nothing sticks out in my mind. So i did a phone a friend and i asked erin because he'd just remember members say different things and he pointed out to me that at so many running events. You deceased so people in all kinds of costumes. And he's specifically thought that. I should mention that. There is a guy that he has seen running a marathon who juggles the entire which is just calm. Down like down like multitalented. There's this person who like list and was doing ridiculous kind of workouts and at one point held with one hand in the middle of pull up and in the other hand solved. The rubik's need that and it was just like what are you molten. Elite lake in people can be multifaceted really talented but it also feels like kind of like rubbing it in our face that like you can solve a rubik's cube and you can solve it with one hand and you can solve in one hand while hanging your full body way and the other hand and it was too much. I was and it reminded me of when i worked at center for talented youth at hopkins over the summer and they have like a talent show at the end and the act like brought the house down. Was this little boy who with one hand tied behind his back solved a rubik's cube. Wow reciting the entire number chain of pie. And that's kind of how i feel about the like you just shared jessica when you said the number chain of pie immediately. Thought cherry or pecan took me a second to register that you were talking about the number. I'm like why are the numbers involved in baking. Welcome to bring all downward this morning. We're basically all amelia padilla's so whether you are baking pie or reciting the number chain ed or you are a pitch invader or maybe inventing new job as a pigeon baiter. We look forward to all of these random moments of hilarity enjoy in and around sports so as of today when we're recording this the middle of may may sixteenth The olympics are still on despite it feeling like maybe that shouldn't be a thing and you know many many questions and very few answers quite honestly so in order to try to sift through. What's happening with the olympics. Weiner going to dive right in and tell you from the top that there are a lot more questions than there are answers both general but also in this segment every other day. There's a news item about the olympics. And it seems to be jumbled up in the kind of mayhem of the up and here we are. And i think the place to start is where we have to start the reason why we're having the twenty twenty olympics and twenty twenty one is because of covid because of the global pandemic and that is not over and that is still one of the biggest concerns leading into the olympic games so The i'll see announced that they were going to be offering vaccinations to all participants in the tokyo games. recently and this is one way that the irc thinks that they can keep the olympic safe and make them go still just. What was your reaction to that announcement. Yeah i think it's a complicated reaction as you're saying like i feel like i have more questions than i do answers on this so the way that it will work at the. Icu will provide the vaccine to athletes in their countries ahead of time. Obviously they need to take them before they get to tokyo in order to be vaccinated and so it'll be administered domestically by whatever program within that country there won't be a requirement though that athletes coaches officials or others be sitting in for before coming to japan. So i just feel like. I don't know how to feel about it. If you're going to force these games on a public that's in crisis as japan is right now it around cova it does seem right to send in as many vaccinated people as you possibly can to lessen the burden at the same time if feels weird because we're talking about a country. Japan has maybe one percent of their country vaccinated. This point i saw a stat that maybe it's up us highest three percent. But it's incr- like that's so low. It's the difference between those. Two numbers is negligible The idea that we're going to vaccinate athletes to send them into a country to put on a sporting event when that country is still struggling to even get people vaccinated. Just feels unethical. When i think of it that way so pardon me things good. This is a good thing to do. We're going to do this but should we be doing this should we. This is like a reoccurring a reoccurring question Serene i mean there's also that sense of feeling injustices listening to just talk about that number. Two percent three percent is is horrible. It's really really really stressful. But also the idea that they'll be offering fascinations to athletes coming in as opposed to people of their own country is wearing some as well. But also you can't force people to vaccine elites have reservations or staff or team officials or whatnot coaches medical teams themselves have issues with that. I come from a place particularly in canada where the history of medical and pharma history is excruciatingly horrific with black and indigenous communities and racialized communities. So there are hesitate about it. And i understand that. Get that so. You can't force people to do that. And athletes come. they don't want to be vaccinated then and now soccer actually said was quoted. And we'll put the the lincoln show notes. She sat on vaccinating people quote. I feel like whatever makes everyone more comfortable and more save. There's going to be a lot of people entering the country so they definitely have to make the right decisions on that. I've gotten vaccinated at the end of the day. You can't force anyone to be vaccinated. She did also add. If you're going into the olympics and whatever make the host country happy end quote so there's a lot there i mean she herself has been vaccinated but again the disparity between who has access to it and visitors coming and what's the priority there then. I think about like what this means. If they're giving the vaccines over two different domestic programs like there's going to be an equity in like how which countries are gonna have infrastructure to get their people vaccinated like it's just there's so much there that it seems good on the surface but then as soon as you scratch like where are we certainly and i mean. This is like part of the context. The tapping right now is that we also are seeing extreme inequity in vaccination distribution here. The united states and a lot of people were kind of shocked and pleased to see the us the administration has indicated that they support waving patents on the covid. Vaccinations which it's pissing off the us pharmaceutical regime of course but that would allow that ip to be shared in in places where they're having less ability to even get them and so. I think we're talking about the olympics. They're talking about a global competition. You have athletes and teams and trainers coming in from all parts of the globe and we have tried and in my opinion failed many times over this past year to underscore that this has been a global pandemic and the the way to safety through it is also going to take a global effort. And you're talking about people coming in from around the globe that still very equitable in terms of the resources to vaccinate. So i think that this is not the same bubbles or wobbles that you see. Us domestic leagues being able to put up with still had their problems right. You're talking about people from everywhere. Come into tokyo and then if we focus zoom in on just even where they're being held in japan. There's there's vaccine issues there right. Just yeah so not only. Is there this low rate. But there's just general infrastructure struggles to get people vaccine so like last week. For example there were technical problems at derailed their corona virus vaccination crash a ton of places and this was an isolated japanese issue. It was a global problem with a us based cloud computing vendor. That was overseeing this website but it also comes on the heels of other issues like there was a contact tracing application that failed to pass on vital information. There was cumbersome database at health workers and japan were really reluctant to us and so it does kind of leave. You like the. This is the government that people in japan are supposed to trust to put on a quote unquote safe olympics. Like you can see why people in japan are not feeling this are very worried about like what this will mean for their communities if the olympics actually show up can they trust that the government is actually doing. Its part to make sure that it's the safest possible. Those are legitimate questions at this point. Yeah and some of the loudest voices that are objecting to this come from the medical professionals in japan. One of the things that struck me as really upsetting all this is that you know we keep forgetting that this plague as i call it continues and the frontline users still doing their work like they've been the most impacted and the i reached out to ask five hundred nurses to volunteer for the summer games. And just saying that allowed makes me want to vomit like in the middle of all this. You're dealing with stressed out community in your country. And then the walks in here with their bazillions and are like volunteer and so the total number of cova deaths. According to the guardian article it will actually also put in the show. Notes is past ten thousand and the highest in the region. Miss this article is from may the third. So it's it's fairly recent but the ten thousand medical workers. According to olympic officials will be required for the games ten thousand in a country. That can't handle this. At the moment infrastructure wise and and mentally and emotionally and psychologically physically cannot handle it so it sent out a wave of rage on social media. Were the nurses were no. This is not happening. And according to makuto a kedah who's a nurse in nago. She said quote beyond feeling anger. I was stunned at the insensitivity of the request. And that from you sums up everything how absolutely detach the ioc and organizing. People are from folks on the ground which is also worrisome. Reckless and dangerous and like. I wonder what this means for athletes who are going to show up to compete like we can talk about them. Getting covert and lengthened stressing the system that way but also just athletes get hurt all the time when they're competing at the highest possible level. They're pushing themselves beyond what they probably should in order to win medals and so. What does this mean for athlete health. I mean that's that seems like such a small issue when we're looking at kobe general but you can see how this will ripple out that way and the ripple effects are many and varied in switching a little bit from the medical concern of it. The other thing that we see happening is when we're talking about the olympics. We're talking about a huge logistical thing. That involves different sites in locales on the ground and one of the things that the relies on as many many host cities towns that even before the opening ceremonies star host athletes for things like training camps exchanges To get them in in into the country and kind of settled before the parade of nations and the games kicked off and so usually they call upon hundreds of towns to do this. And we've seen this week that at least forty towns have already declined have changed plans to host these. Visiting athletes citing cove concerns in medical resources already. And some of these places aren't necessarily in cities right. They're smaller enclaves. That were you know. Regions that we're going to host specific sports and so yes. It's going to be a logistical headache. But that is also something that we're thinking about the concerns here. We have to take into account like just said all the ripples but the full picture and so we know for instance the place where the us track and field team is supposed to have. Training camp is one area. That has been very hard hit by this fourth wave in japan. And so when you hear these things like how is this right like how. How like how the other thing that. I i read this week in prepping for the segment was japan's closed borders to one hundred fifty two countries. What have the olympics. what it's like what. I'm sorry that's all. I can feel like that's all i can say about this and it wasn't like the head of the. Isd didn't go on a trip to japan because it's not safe. It's just how can all these things existed the same time i feel like i feel amir's how feel sharon's like i don't have words for this like how can we put all these pieces together and have a complete puzzle that makes any kind of sense to us. It just doesn't as questions now on top athletes from japan are starting to speak out in. Res concern our beloved naomi. Osaka for instance. Listen there's so much important stuff going on especially the past year but you know it's putting people at risk and it's making people uncomfortable than there definitely should be a discussion. And she noted like that's what she thinks. Things are at a fellow japanese tennis player. Japan's top ranked player came. Nishikori also echoed. These concerns a few days later and he talked about how you know like look. It's not like one hundred people coming to these tournaments. He noted that like ten thousand people in the village playing tournament and he was like what's happening in japan right now. It's not doing good in. He raised a lot of concerns about what it would take to make a good and What the risks were And it's a major step that athletes are starting to speak out and it's not surprising that japanese athletes are kind of leading the way on that But we've also seen other tennis players. Join with them in talking about some of the barriers to participation. what is serena saying. One of the things. I thought was really interesting. Was that serino was interviewed about this for the washington post and she said that she wouldn't actually consider going if she can't take olympia which we know. She travels with her family tall. Almost every you know event which is amazing and amazing for several reasons one that she has resources to be able to do this to that. She's setting a precedent for this kind of thing in professional women's sports. I love all of this. However the lack of options will affect participation very often places like the olympics. You have family go and support their athletes and for some families not going in not having childcare will result in not going and what this looks like and these are all pieces. That haven't been figured out yet because the people making the decisions at the table are clearly not mothers. clearly not people that are caregivers their their men with power who make these decisions. And i think this is something that serena said in this article for washington post while that she would focus on other events like major grand slams instead because that's really the crux of she's won medals at the olympics. Undoubtedly and that's important however grand slam is more important so unlike other athletes were olympics is probably the pinnacle of competition grand. Slams are so important and she saw has those options which she will look to and hopefully be able to participate in as opposed to the olympics. But it makes me think the other athletes who don't have those resources. Roger federer has also joined the chorus of tennis players raising concern. I'm noting that while he would love to obviously play in the olympics and win a medal for switzerland He would understand if if the olympics had to be cancelled and he noted that ultimately what athletes need right now is a decision and that they can't live in this uncertainty and. I think that that is really valid. Many athletes who listen. I'm just putting my head down and training. I can't i can't afford to stop trading in case they go on but like i also have these concerns and i think many athletes are absolutely most sick of uncertainty around it and i think that the point shooting just made is absolutely one of the kind of critical things. It's a surprise that some of these early voices are coming from tennis. Players who are on a circuit in which there is many a big event in the olympics is like cool bonus and many of them will be there. But it's not a. It's not their big tournament but be it's not actually where they're going to make the most money and so one of the things that i think about when talking about athletes in more kind of precarious positions in why. They're like no. We can't afford to stop training because this is it the they trained for years for the olympics. They've already had to figure out how to sustain that training over a year In the time when everything got pushed back but the olympics is where they get their most sponsored their endorsements it sets them up financially And so i think for athletes in sports that are truly olympic sports where this event is the pinnacle of their career and their economic. This is definitely much more complicated. And the uncertainty is still an issue but the the pro and con list looks a little bit different. Yeah i definitely think. Tennis players have a very different relationship to the olympics. Then most athletes that compete in the olympics. Because they're constantly doing international competitions all year long so it says now that it's not important. Roger federer cried when he won his metal with stan wawrinka and the doubles. It's not like this is not important to them. But yeah i i agree with you a mirror that there's just a different relationship that they have to these games so it is interesting that they are the voices hearing a lot from at this point and i think it's like your thoughts about like what should happen with the olympics. Also really depends on who you send is when we're talking about hospital it's being overrun and we're talking about people on the ground. It's hard to hear any of that and not automatically say absolutely like the. This is not worth it. You know what. I mean when you think about tennis players is easy to say like oh yeah it will be sad but we'll see you australian open etc etc. But then like sometimes. When i sent her you know i think about those olympic athletes who talked about how they returned to uber. They returned to cleaning houses for a year waiting to get this payday like this was going to be the thing that put food on the plate for their family for the next foreseeable future and when i sent her them i think about like what is at stake for them with kinsley shen. I'm not thinking about the pockets of the that will know their pockets will be lighter. Who gives a damn but like actually for folks on the ground or marginalized athletes who use the olympics to get into a place. That's safer right to literally leave their countries and go to other places It's hard it's hard but there are people who have in addition to athletic voices and people on the ground. of course we have We've talked about anti-olympic activists constantly and of course much of their concern is being proven by how these games are being held our good friend gills boycott for instance Just wrote a piece for the times calling for the olympics to be cancelled. Medical officials in japan and across the world are clamoring for the olympics to be cancelled. Olympic athletes are amazing to behold no question but the olympics are a wholly optional sporting spectacle not some essential service to humanity choosing to press ahead with the tokyo games means creating a massive potentially dangerous petri dish for the sake of global public health. It's time to listen to science to tokyo. Olympic games should be cancelled. Why do i take this position. While i out of concern for global public health three point three million people have died corona virus thus far second out of concern for public health in japan where cases are surging. They're in the midst of their fourth wave of covid. Nineteen and less than two percent of the population is fully vaccinated third out of concern for the health of olympic athletes. We don't yet know. The full effects of corona virus on the body including the heart and forethought respect for the japanese majority right now around sixty percent of the population. Want the games to be cancelled. The only complicating factor really is that cancelling the olympics means depriving athletes of a chance to shine as listeners of burn. It all down. Well no the olympics aren't enormous pedestal. for women athletes. the tokyo games are also slated to include trans athletes in the potential for serious athlete activism. But as a former olympic level athlete. I still don't think the games should go on. I can appreciate how difficult the situation is for athletes. A cancelled olympics would be devastating. Arguing for cancellation brings me absolutely no joy when i think of olympic athletes in all they've done to achieve their five ring dreams and i don't expect them to like my conclusions. Let alone agree with them. But i hope that one day. They'll appreciate where i'm coming from. I also might point out that. The international olympic committee foreclose the option to postpone the games further making cancelation clear option. I can promise olympic athletes. This i will continue to fight for athlete rights. I will continue to fight for athletes to get a bigger slice of the olympic money pie and should the games ultimately be cancelled. I will fight for olympic organizations around the world to increase funding for mental health support and counselling for many spectators. What is most alluring about. The olympics is their audacious impracticality with thousands of athletes from many sports coming together from around the world to compete in one place however during a global health crisis this has potentially lethal consequences pressing ahead with the olympics risks drinking poison to quench your thirst for sport the possibility of a superspreader catastrophe is not worth it for an optional sporting spectacle. It's time to cancel. The tokyo olympics suggests again. Lots of questions Few answers but i'm wondering if we could think about how we even kind of take take this conversation. I'm really not sure like one thing. I keep thinking about is who should get to make this decision about cancelation versus. Who is actually going to make this decision. Also say now. Like i think it's going to happen in the end. I don't i don't really see the i. O. c. pulling the plug here because of the amount of money that these stakeholders have invested in these games. I don't know if japan can afford to pull this financially But what does that mean. Can they afford it as far as like what. The impact on their infrastructure is going to be on the health and lives of the people who live there. And i think about these towns and amir talked about the forty that have pulled out and said you can't come here like we can't handle this and that there was a part of me that felt a little relief in reading that that they do have some ability to wield a little power in this decision making but i am just. It's one of those moments where you see power and you see capitalism. And you just think it's going to roll right over the people of japan at the same time. It's that very as mira said very well. What does this mean for the individual athlete to up to this point in time like i can't establish in my mind. What is fair here. And i think there's no answer is unsatisfying thing. I think it is unfair to japan to hold these games. And i think it is unfair to a lot of these athletes who you know. Maybe this system of the olympics is not good. Maybe it is bad and exploitation and all the ways that it is set up so that these people are dependent on these games happening every four years in order to feed their families. Maybe that is a bad system that we should be rethinking but it is the system that exists right now and it will harm people if individuals that we care about the athletes. We care about if these games don't happen. And i just think there's no answer to that tension at this point and i i don't know i keep wondering i. I'll watched the olympics. If they happen. I feel real bad about it just preparing for that. I always grapple with this is something we talked about on the show for four years over four years. Like sort of struggling with despising the mega events that gentrify militar- is you know that are so toxic in so many ways joel sad but also the implication of women's sports in that we don't see that this is an opportunity for exposure and para games as well and this is something that i struggle with particularly. When do we get to watch. Iranian women are chores or skeet shooter. When does that happen. This happens at the olympics that we get to see we get the photography we get the video we get this is just that was just one example but my point is that i feel that i've learned this year in grad school and save us. It's complicated and that's what all the smart people say. It's complicated because it truly is. There is no one answer. Will i watch the olympics. Yeah if they happen. Will i hate myself as i'm doing it. Yeah i think about you know the the colleagues that i have that will be attending and reporting on it and their safety. What does it look like for them. And the heaviness with which they're attending and taking resources from a place that has just said can't carry it and amir. You've had gwen berry and had so many conversations gwen on the show before. And i think back to her so often and her words about how she was relying on those games last year when she was on the show talking about it and she comes to mind first and foremost that we need to be able to have something to support these athletes in that currently doesn't exist. Yeah it reveals just how janki these systems are and yet there are systems and i think that yes. It's complicated but also we can't like afford to throw up our hands at complication because harm continues in that kind of confusion in so for me. I think a lot of this as much as i hate philosophy. You know a lot of these are like those type of ethical questions that don't ever feel resolve because because it there is no perfect thing that makes everybody safe and happy and have what they need. None of the. Perhaps it isn't that there are so few answers. But also the every answer just feels very unsatisfying An incomplete and and i think about that and know just think a lot about fairness in sports in many different ways whether it's in terms of doping or about barriers to participation of a number of ways and i'm wondering how this of has factored into your thoughts about the kind of ethical dimensions of spore and what we consider to be fair not. Yeah i think what is fair mean in this in this moment and i don't think we can say i liked that amir that there are answers. And they're also unsatisfying. Ray like how ever we answered this question. It's going to feel deeply unfair to someone. And i think this is one of those moments where i worry that. This is a good discussion that is happening. You know nio me saying we should be having this conversation is yes and i worry that these games will happen and they will be over and there will be few reporters within japan. Maybe some international that will tell us about the ramifications on their communities and they will be like little sidebars newspapers. Or you know there'll be a couple of tweets about them or something and we will forget and we'll ramp it all back up for china next year but it's so fleeting. This model is so useful and forcing the conversation to end. And what will this mean when it's all over too so i don't know i just feel this makes me feel well. That's the technical term is block and abdul absolutely co-signed. That well like i said this is of central concern and is something that we will continue to follow in the lead up of the inevitable opening ceremonies and they think that the last kind of point i wanted to to make about the olympics. Is that for us for lay consumers or consumers and bystanders the olympics. I think that there's a way that technology really office gates some of the ways that these concerns are are on the ground. So and what i mean by that is when the olympics inevitably open up with the opening ceremony. And you're watching the parade of nations from your couch. It might not feel different because we're watching people because of camera angles because it's inside. The stadium is not on. The outside is not looking at the medical professionals holding signs and windows saying no olympics. It's not looking at the activists on the ground is not seeing these other concerns in negotiations and and dilemmas. It's going to speed the spectacle. And i think that because of that it becomes harder to hold and wreck in with all parts of this conversation so our attempt here at brennan. All down is to continue to have this conversation as the olympics. A roll roll on And while we spent most of this segment talking about in impact in. This dilemma is the olympic. So you know there's a whole heap of other bullshit that we wanna talk about leading up to the games and so if you're on our patriot platform please head over there for the extended part of this conversation and with me charene in jessica are going to take you through some of the other olympic mess. That's happening. It's a mini burn of sorts. We're gonna talk everything from drug testing to messed up. Boxer rankings because of pregnancy to the asinine ban on black lives matter merchandise. There's a lot of other crab that we're going to discuss in terms of the olympics so basically had the ioc sitting down with a style guide and deciding that words like peace respect solidarity and inclusion equality are permitted but equality and inclusion in solidarity. For what you can't say so again. That's over on our patriarch and check out the rest of the conversation there and stay tuned for that space. Because i have a feeling is not the last time we're going to do a mini burn segment on the mess. That is olympic games over the next few weeks. So jess amira. My birthday is on the horizon. Yes no i think. I'm turning thirty three this year. Which feels like a very grownup age to me. So i was like damn. I really should start taking vitamins like old. People do not just for old people. Vitamins are for all so. I was super excited to discover ritual and ritual. First of all look sleek has like these little beads in asia. Like looks cool. The bottle is clear. the vitamins are clear. I just think it's very pretty absolutely. It's a new type of vitamin right. Yeah and it's traceable you'll always know what nutrients you're taking and where they come from thanks to rituals one of a kind visible supply chain so the thing that i like is that it's just really easy. You know your vitamins ship. Free always there deliver right here door and then really important for folks like me who are. Adhd you can stop. You can start.

If you don't love it in your first month the refunder order this makes healthy habits very easy for everyone not just the old people for the new adults to see. You can get key nutrients without the bs rules offering our listeners. Ten percent off during your first three months visit ritual dot com slash burned ten b. You are and one zero to start your ritual. Today this week. I talked to bianca tilik. The founder and executive director of worth rises worth rises as a nonprofit were dedicated to dismantling the prison industry. And all of its exploitation. One of the things that they are. Centering is telecommunications and it's an often overlooked site of the extent of the prison industrial complex. So i'm going to talk to bianca about the recent direct action protests that worth rises facilitated against. Tom gores the detroit. Pistons owner who also has investments in a private telecommunications system that is very harmful and has been impacting many families across the nation and their ability to communicate with their loved ones behind bars. Prison telecom industry is a one point four billion dollar industry entirely around communication of people inside with their loved. Ones outside is time for everyone's favourite segment the burn pile. I wanna start off with a mini burn. Sent to us by a flame. Thrower amanda williams. Who took screenshot shot of the cbs coverage. She had turned on the tv to watch the wnba opening weekend of gains went to cbs and found the game was not being showing yet why well because despite the fact that the wnba games were starting Cbs would not turn away from the exciting action at the end of the cornhole tournament and so people tuning into the wnba games on cbs. Were delayed before watching the twentieth anniversary. Season tip off so thank you amanda for that many burn so the other thing that i'm burning this week is not tim o. Signing but what his signing represents and how. It was talked about so for those of you. Who missed the news tim team. I signed a contract with the jacksonville. Jaguars reuniting with urban meyer. I'm in resurrecting football career. He was looking at him to play tight. End one of the tweets that caught my eye in reaction to this was this black woman laverne spicer. Who's running republican candidate in florida and her tweet was getting signed because he knows how to throw a football. Colin kaepernick isn't getting sound because he doesn't is not about race and it's like to me haha. We all know this is bullshit but also indicates just how much political cachet is believed that you can gain by dumping on kong cabinet how he has become the symbol. That's divorced from reality in many ways. Because first of all tim tebow can not a ball which is why. He's not even getting signed to be quarterback he's getting signed to be a tight end second of all very rich to compare the the football cume of to tibo who threw one unbelievable pass to get team into the playoffs that one time once With congress renege who led his team to the playoffs and to the super bowl and invitation to win it so clearly. You know not of what you speak but that doesn't matter to you at all. The reason why people are mad about the signing is because when you compare to him t-bone colin cabinet which has been a useful comparison for people to point to whether it's the different reactions to people taking in the right doing the same action and there's different reactions to why and how and when they're taking a knee but also because it is another example of people who are not as good of players getting second and third chances being brought into the league and every time it just doubled down on the fact that calling was blackballed. And that's what it is like. You can't look at these things in come away with other conclusions And it's old hat at this point it's kind of shrub and as will hear from a showering later columnists up two different things these days continuing to do the work and so it was a mess and i would like to burn the continued misrepresentation of everything around hong capra nick and his protests and it as a quote unquote distraction. And if you don't think. Tim tebow is a mother. Fucking distraction to your team. Just look at the media. Frenzy set off when they announced the signing so all of the tired as things that we've now been talking about for five years it was just a reminder that there are still going and i would just like for old time sake to burn it down for all right shreen. What are you burning this week. This made me real mad. I've been mad line. I'm always mad a lot. But this particular thing. And i want to offer trigger wearing to anyone listening because this is actually violent white supremacy taking place here. I was notified by my friend. Use of honda. I in pen and you had sent me a tweet. Kubota story that was written about a high school softball player. Name nicole piles of hillside. High school in durham north carolina. While she was playing she was told by two empires. One is black and one is whites to cut off her beads and her braids during the game. During the game she was singled out. And although the city of passed a nondiscrimination policy unfortunately efforts to make the policy. Statewide were unsuccessful. So she was actually told in the words that she used. And this is the first line of this piece is. Does anyone have any scissors. Which is incredibly jarring. And the first thing that i thought about when i heard this is about the wrestler andrew johnson. I wrote about him in two thousand eighteen. Who was who had his dried sued off so he could compete and how the narrative around that was. Oh he's a great team player. No you know what this is. This is him being a victim of white supremacy in sport. That's actually what this is and this was the same thing. I want to hold space for nicole for being incredibly courageous and brave to talk about this because she sun high school and having to deal with this is so upsetting and we've covered this before whether it was being kicked off the court for volleyball for young volleyball players who are job or whatever this is about racist about identity. And this is unacceptable. So as an actionable steps. I would recommend everybody to contact the nf. S h. h. S a two state worganization and write them north carolina to let them know that these policies are actually created by state organizations and an association. So it matters if you email them even if you're not from north carolina please contact them and let them know and there will be this story in the show links. You can cite it in. This is unacceptable. I want to take all of this guy. And i just want to torch it for just brings him so just a note. I'm about to talk about sexual harassment and abuse earlier this month. Northwestern university announced they were hiring. Mike polinsky the school's deputy athletic director as athletic director. This announcement was met with over a week of protests because polski is named in sexual harassment lawsuit filed in january by former northwestern. Cheerleader hayden. Richardson if this sounds familiar. It's because shreen burn this episode one ninety two back in february the lawsuit and what it isn't it. Polinsky is not just part of an athletic department. That is under scrutiny. Here he is a defendant in the lawsuit. Richardson named him directly. You might recall. The new cheerleaders were being presented as sex objects to tiddly the men that funded the majority of north western's athletic programs in the lawsuit. Richardson said she was groped and touched by older men and said the cheer teams head coach required female members to me ingle with power donors for the schools financial gain according to the chicago tribune in her complaint. Richardson says polinsky dismissed her concerns and that multiple black cheerleader said. He did not take complaints of racial discrimination seriously. So it boggles the mind that he would get the gig as the new. Ad in response there were student. Led protests and six female faculty members wrote a letter as university administrators asking for an investigation into the hiring process. Nine days after he was hired polinsky resigned from the position. Saying he didn't want to be a distraction. I kind of don't know what to say at this point to be blunt. I'm fucking tired of the shit. We know what it looks like when athletic departments and those in charge of them do not take reports of harassment discrimination abuse and assault. Seriously we were reminded of it just this week. in fact. The university of michigan released a report by a firm that looked into a doctor who worked at the school especially within athletics for nearly forty years. And who was accused by so many people of sexual abuse misconduct. The firm found at least twenty two zero occasions when a student athlete or other individuals spoke with someone on the university staff about this man's abuse. At least eight of those were student athletes directly complaining to a coach or other athletic staff members including legendary football coach bo sham boeckler and an athletic director. Don canham who did nothing after being told twice about the doctors abuse. I'm guessing northwestern is hoping that police key's resignation will mean that the heat will be off of them but it shouldn't be. They should have to answer for how this hiring process went down. Why a man accused of dismissing harm done to student athlete. Promoted up the chain. This is all terrible. And i just i want to burn it this week. So burn for her after all. That burning is time to highlight some torchbearers of the week. Who are leading the way to a better sporting future. We'll start with the memoriam charene. Thanks to mira. I wanted to hold space for the family and community of chandra tomar. Who is an indian markswoman. She died last month at the age of ninety. She is was noted around the world and picked on social media for her incredible accurate shot. She i picked up a gun at the age of sixty eight and she lives in jodi which village in the state of In india and she had discovered that she had a gift for shooting When she was younger much much younger. And i think it's really incredible here because this speaks to us about breaking down gender barriers because guns are seen as the venue. Marksmanship is seen as a sport. that's predominantly male and for her to be an older woman in a community in indian a small indian village to be able to do this has created opportunity. And it's helping people learn what that can be and she you know she would enjoy firing her pistol and the on her face and she's a beautiful woman and she trained at night while her family's slapped holding heavy jugs so she could keep her arm study so she doesn't have access to gyms and all these things so she was using very traditional an old fashioned things to build her body up and to stay fit and i just want to hold space for that and for her and she. She's like a light. And someone i looked to and i think okay when my over then i can start marksmanship and so so. I would love to be this. This older indiana stuff. Asian women who shooting things just so johndroe we love you and hope he rest in peace jessica. Who's our dream team of the week.

And now a drum roll please. Our torchbearer of the week goes to everybody who was involved in the production of one. Forty four the documentary chin- mccain of course the credit for that one forty four captures the last year that was in the wnba from the decisions to go into the bubble of the life in the rubble. The players only meeting discussing what protests would look like it's a fascinating compelling documentary Charene i know you wrote about one. Forty four For the guardian jessica. I know that you were very touched by. It was so impactful about this documentary that you want our listeners to know one of the things for me is i interviewed filmmakers for my piece in the guardian and the fact that they're both racialized woman was block when his latin ax was really important because of the nature and the way and also the way the vulnerability of the players struck me. The most. and this is. I've watched a lot of athletes docks but this one really hit me is. I've never seen one showcase some as so vulnerable in real time and that was like i cried in it Multiple times because of the way that it was done. I did too. Yeah i cried aligned. Just the rawness of it. And how much i've been thinking about. That affected the foam acres while in their process of doing it. And that was something i talked about in the pieces while but it was also a place that they help joy and that was very intentional to it was just. It was beautifully done. And i would highly recommend teaching it. I would highly recommend watching it. I would highly recommend showing everybody whether or not into basketball. Yeah the honesty. Anna is beautiful. You can stream it on. Espn right now. If you missed it you should go watch it. I will say one of the highlights is how much we got to cd. Oke hamby and her daughter. Maya but i just think the honesty that these men were willing to put on screen was. It's a hell of a thing as a real gift and i can attest to how much just enjoyed it. Because i have a running text conversation it was. It was mostly just me saying i'm sorry it was like again. I'm crying again. So to chennai to the filmmakers to the hundred and forty four players on this documentary film and to everybody who supported and continues to support. The w wow. We're celebrating the first week of returning to action. Please definitely make time to watch one. Forty four is our our torchbearer of the week. Can i just really Leisure clarendon. I love you so much. It was so tough because a tip off was this week. Season was starting to get an interview for my piece. I message them and they replied with beautiful statement. Leiva you're my favorite person in the entire universe for doing that for me again. I love you all right. What's good in your world jessica. I don't know it's hard at this point. I will say it was really fun to see the dallas wings. Do their opener against the sparks. Ninety four seventy one. I'm going to be better about supporting my women's pro teams here in texas so the wings and the dash. The dash unfortunately lost their opener to gotham this weekend. But man i you never know what to expect with the wings It was fun because becky johnson their head coach and she played in the very first wnba game. Ever against the sparks. She was on New york at that time so for her to come out in be in the opener. You know the first day of play in the twenty fifth season and the team just look good at. It was fun. And then the other thing i was i was like what is been good. Aaron and i started watching the very canadian show letterkenny at it is the weirdest strangest thing it's on hulu. I don't really even know how to describe it i have to look a lot of the slaying. They talk very fast There's a lot about hockey and ed's but it is so funny. I think it's a very specific kind of humor. So i'd would necessarily recommended for everyone but you should give it a shot and see how you how it goes for you. But what a weird little show. Did the words sheni hockey come up at all in this because you know what that is now not yet but have to keep googling phrases like a whole site. that explains letterkenny jargon that evolved. Because i don't know if it's actually like i think it's good for the show not necessarily just like canadian hockey or whatever so it's a good well my what's good is a bit more forward facing. I think than like what's actually happening. I do wanna shout out my sister-in-law chevron cunningham who has waited a week year to walk across her graduation stage. And it's actually getting to walk in graduation as we speak this moment But yeah a lot of my. What's good is like things. I'm looking forward to I will be talking on monday so by the time you hear this. We'll have already happened. But i'm really excited to be speaking for this program called celebrate field day and feel day is This dramatic performance piece reimagining track and field But as a space for black queer trans folks in new york who are coming together to put on this performance space to kind of up and track and field and binary sports by using movement styles from other places in which Moving free looks different. So whether that's vogue gaming or up weather or a blend of fitness exercises and house music dancing line dancing so that event will stay tuned for that. That will be in late. June but i'll be speaking In the run-up to enjoining many voices as we lead up to a field day to talk about race and gender binary in sport. And i'm very excited about the work. That's being done for field day. You to know more you can go to. The website celebrate field day dot com for more information and links to past and future conversations. I'm also like now that the semester is over. I'm like in writing mode. I'm writing a bunch of stuff. But i'm starting to get really excited about moving to austin and you know putting this in the universe because i hope to be there in june just for a little bit with jess so he can go see all of the funds soccer. That's being played. And so i'm just like hit me the other day like yeah. I'll be flying in june to do that. But i'll have a whole year. Where i can drag jessica to so many different sporting of reel very excited about that and my daughter got her first shot. My son got his too so at the same time. Y'all can i tell you about the universe and observation at the exact same just like yeah observation. Because he just got his first. I said that's literally where i am right now and i even make somebody take a picture to to demonstrate that we were in fact waiting in observation so that feels kind of cool and it means that her second dose will be my birthday week so my birthday weekend we can like. I don't know what we're still not doing shit but still feels like something i've been so that's kind of where i'm at Charene i want to see mubarak to everybody. He was on thursday. it was. It's been a heavy time with soma happening with the heaviness of palestine and we offer our solidarity to those communities out there On that note. I managed to hold tab some joy and hold some happiness my own family and it was a very low key illegal but it was wonderful and we were able to have that space i had community and friends and neighbors who have not met before dropping off sweets like so my house like a bakery to a point where i was panicking. Because i was like. There's so much sweets or so many boxes of things that are being dropped off. And you know you're reciprocating. And i have one particular neighbor who i love. She's wonderful but she sends his beautifully packaged things. And i get stressed out because it can't reciprocate so i'm like it's okay. It's a wonderful thing to happen and one neighbor. I hadn't even met yet brought over box. Crispy kreme donuts and my kids were like yes. It's like jackpot. i hadn't even have lived here for two years. Have you met them before so. That was a beautiful thing. I think the weather has something to do with it. One of the key fund pieces of ede was. I got my parents book by canadian. Author named erin reynolds. That's called effenberg's so it's pictures of birds with just profanity and my mom lost at laughing. She 'cause like it's like a picture of al saying like fuck you and she just loves it like she just she. Has this laugh that i love that. She laughs which morphs into a wease and cough and then she starts coughing uncontrollably and then tears run down her face so it was just a lovely to hold that space. The wnba again. I'm again in love with candace parker. Lovett tim duncan Otherwise known as my husband was enshrined into the hall of fame. And i love his dreads. And i love him in that maroon blazer so thank you to me for giving me a gentle nod that i don't know if everyone else picked up on but that was for me Lossing i do want to say is that i took my kids. The first time ever took my kids to a palestinian pro-palestine pro gaza rally was unsafe. Who is now twenty one so happy birthday to my baby who turned twenty one of twenty one year old son folks which is wild. He was the baby. And i took him as an infant and put them in a sling with a cafe which is palestinian palestinian headdress. Anyway took my kids last night. The three older once to a palestinian solidarity rally last night. and it's very cool for me 'cause and rallying and activism as part of my life. Since i was a baby particularly on this issue for chosen family and community so going with my kids was was incredible. This is something that. I hope that we don't have to do forever. I don't want my grandchildren to be protesting this. I don't want my grandchildren to be fighting for this particular or any type of racial injustice. Police brutality occupation ethnic cleansing. But there was a moment that it was really like. I was really important for me to be with my children in them to be able to hold space and there was community care. There was love. There was support many different communities and to have that insured was super important to me and of course in the background is the maple philistine which is an anthem. That was playing through all the cars that were honking and the flags that were there. It was wonderful so holding space for you so there are lots of things on screen tells me that in addition to nhl moving into this postseason the international hockey. Men's championships are also happening. this week. the two leagues that we especially want to shout out We have a lot of action.

You have to actually know what you're talking about this thing through it it. Yeah it's nerve wracking right if you've never done it before. Like what am I gonNA sound like? Who's GonNa listen to what I have to say in you? Just start doing it and it becomes a habit and you just end. It becomes a way to learn a lot. So it's like y you can learn a lot about yourself. You can walk speaking habits. You can learn about the questions you you can learn about other people so if you're trying to go down the self betterment track like just like you said if you WANNA learn about podcasting go talk to someone else about high gas in my podcast. And they'll say yeah would love to do that right. That's an incredible leverage component to it as well in its authentic because you do want to learn but there's other things and you WanNa tell people pass possibly what I'm doing but I still think it's authentic if you do it authentically. It makes a lot of sense. Yeah and people will. WanNa talk to you. Say Glenn. Can I be on your podcast? Bub To talk to you about that. Yeah and you really just brought up like a main thing which is the Ama- good enough question and I want to get into that. Yeah but we got ahead of ourselves a little busy fests what we do. Yeah let's just start off with. Who are you what you do? There's a bunch of brands. There's a bunch of stuff so just give us the lowdown will depend on you. Ask What am I right to your dog? You're the one that feeds me. It takes me out. My wife is like take the dogs out stuff. So but for the sake of this podcast and what I do created a content marketing company in two thousand fifteen and coming from the insurance industry realizing that message was bad in that industry and it's boring and it's dull and it's like how are we going to get some attention to what we're doing in an authentic way. There's that word again and I just started thinking sir. What a mortar. My interested in Hamad interested in business. I'm interested in the business that I'm in. I'm interested in entrepreneurship growing the business. And I'm thinking through things I'm interested in sports and so anyway started creating a block so just said I'll start writing about it. I don't know if you read it but I'll read it or people on the team will read it so he started really creating content fast forward. Now go back to that a little bit but the way I look at it as we help business leaders create and share content. What does that mean? What kind of content? We want to help others. Craig and I think when you talk to a entrepreneurial business or someone out there they have these amazing things that they know or have learned and they could young could be old and I think they have a story to tell and that's kind going back to where I was. That's where I was like. No one cares what I have to say possibly until you realize like Oh maybe one person does care and that one person is really all you need and you find out. Maybe there's some more people I did it for myself. I did it for this company. We did at this company together and I went down this journey and I said I can help others do it. But I didn't know that until someone reach out to me and said I like what you're doing. Can you help me do that? Well that's amazing so I just created this content. Someone came to me and there was obviously a lot more to that conversation which actually started on twitter and lead to more messages and emails and phone calls and meetings and more and all that kind of stuff and I was like well. Someone saw our content. That became proof of concept to say. Can you help me do that for my business? So what we do is what we've done here. We now do it for you so we continue to do it here. We do it for you. If it's good enough for me it's good enough for you is how I look at it and I think it's an amazing journey to watch different people that we've helped in some small way because let's be honest there the brand. They're their own talent if we can help them and get them to next level of whatever that might be a wherever they are on their journey. It's awesome I love it. That's I just enjoyed talking to get. It does feel good and let's be honest. It's all GonNa work out in the end. We have to make money. We have to grow a business. We have to do the things that we want to do. But if I can build a business that allows me the company here that people that we love to have your to create meaning. Yeah we have to pay bills. We have to do certain things we have to eat. But it's I look at it like entrepreneurial artists so we get to create so we're building a business allows us to create more create for ourselves Crete for the person that we work with and we get to talk to entrepreneurial type people all the time. And there's just this vibe that when you have like you talked about before we I sat down and started talking like or listening and hearing or reading. The same people do more of that. That's fine. You learn a lot back that self betterment and then you start thinking about all these different things. And how can I help? This person can help that personnel. And as a result it helps our own company out so yeah so that time. It was all written content blog blog posts. Mostly Yeah so all blog posts. It was about sports and business called Sports Apron. You're so I took sports in business and combined together and really just create analogies around sports and business and it's evolved messy more intersection of Sports. Business Life Entrepreneurship. Thinking like just continues to grow into different. Just what am I thinking about? What do I see I like to collide things? So I can see a sports I can collide that into a piece of content whether it's a blog but yet to answer your question at all was all writing at the time in sports leaper was the first place he started writing. Or did you start writing? As the Insurance Company wrote a little bit as the insurance company but didn't really know what to talk about. And who's going to pay attention in so we were showing up so we work with at the insurance business still exists. It's a separate business inside of Cazadores Kesslers insurance and we with wealth. Managers property casualty agents insurance agents. And we do insurance distribution four there for them in their class right and the thing. Is We be showing up to these advisor's offices and house like we sound just like a lot of other companies would possibly some in? It's just not an exciting conversation. I'm getting tired of it has been doing it for a long time and had a lot of success doing it but I don't want to continue to build that there's more like what is more. I don't know but I knew there was more that will we could be doing. But what if we had this content and that content was the introduction and the content could be about sports? Well people like to talk about sports. It's a great icebreaker along with many others try and so they came in and said well. That's interesting I liked this content. Oh no by the way you do life insurance. I need to talk to you about that. That was the door opener and it was a little bit that but it became more of a see what you're doing. Can you help me do that for my business? Which is the content. Didn't have you can hate sports but you could like a writing style or you could like the way. We design their website. Or You could like just the way things and feel and yeah. I know I need to do that. I WanNa talk about traveling or hiking or a WanNa talk about my legal business or whatever that is. I need someone to help me do that. And create a story around it to then wherever your audience is that. They'LL WANNA talk to you about it right. Did you try to bridge the insurance business and the sports or was it really business and entrepreneurial lessons that you see on the sports field or was like how closely tied was at the beginning. I'm sure you were like trying to to insurance pretty tight I was thinking about. It is funny because this this is just something that people have seen so you sit the movie the social network and he talks about and facebook created facebook and there were talking something about what is the end. Goal here and Mark Zuckerberg actor and saying this is never finished. There is no end. This just keeps going and that's something that people see in the movie. They might remember that scene. I think dorm there is no end to this. It's like fashion. It just keeps evolving keeps changing bread. There were times I tried to box it up and I wrote about this at one point because if you ask like who are you what he was like. Oh my goodness how much time do you have like? You asked like all these I get it you can you know we create and share amazing that type of thing. I get it but there's just I don't know it's hard to box it up but at times. I was trying to box it up. So what does this mean so this content is going lead to visit? I eventually realizes just right just create in. I would go in there and it'll come out of it once. I realize it is just create content. The things will have it so just create and that could be the attention to a wealth advisor. Says I WANNA talk to you. That could be the person that comes into sessile what you wrote and I would like to hire you to do that for my business and so at the beginning yes I was trying to tied in. But they're separate separate websites. They've nothing really to do with each other. They're more tied in now. Just different brands of the cast stores company. Yeah when did you get to the point? A couple of people approach you. Can you help us? You are excited. Because it's Kinda work you love to do. At what point did you decide? This is a company. Like I'M GONNA go create a content marketing company. It was early on. I kinda saw it before. The first person probably came like I want to do more of this and I was starting to hear from people and they were seen. You really liked this. Don't you see? There's a if you have a passion for something they you spend a lot of time thinking about it. You spend a lot time right. He's been talking about. It is something you want to spend more time do. And then they started getting those hard questions like if you had to choose. What would you choose? What would you work on the most interesting? What makes you think a lot? And so I think it was probably beforehand but in two thousand fifteen is when I say that started evolving to two thousand sixteen it was like clients in working with more and more into starting to think through a more building out that aspect of the business and in the podcast started falling after that just realizing because I was reading so I was thinking about my journey to becoming a business owner. So going back is my younger self would laugh. Because I didn't like to read. I read things that I enjoyed but I didn't really read. I didn't really listen. I just you know friends and sports in Business and whatever but I knew I wanted to go out and build a business. So what did I have? I start really started getting interested in reading so I started reading and I was like what is this. Thinks he can listen to this podcast while I walk my dog or my kids my babies at the time and I could do that. And that gave me good positive stuff to think about. Because at the time it's like my dog had died. We had our third child with their child was in the hospital for week when she was a month old. That'll change you a lot that I remember after that I wasn't feeling great was feeling right stressed. Al You're anxious you lie and I'm not happy where I'm at right now. Business at a large company of doing five in starting my business yet and sure enough. I wake up one morning I get a call from one of my clients and he says you guys just got bought out by a large bank in Charlotte and I was like what are you talking about. And no idea. Company just got bought out by BBC which BBC's company was like I live in Charlotte. I don't want to work for everyone. Works for a bank. I don't want to assure enough. I worked for Bay overnight so anyway during this time as you have a lot of stuff going on and I realize what positive stuff was happening from podcasting and thinking and going through these things and remember that as I got further along with my with cash source is I WANNA create content. I WANNA share. 'cause this helped me a lot along the way. I was reading these different things. I was listening to these different things and I just needed to get up the nerve to do. It is really what it was into like not care what someone would say like a friend. Who'd be like you're creating a blog? Would he do and deer like kind of stuff and you like even today? I still get that. I'm sure you do too absolutely or people didn't even know you or they knew you had. It might say something offhand. Like I didn't know you listen. I didn't know you you know you didn't say so. That goes back to kind of what we were talking about. In the beginning is it is scary to get started and it is really easy to think to the hell cares what I have to say. Am I good enough those things? How did you wrestle with those? Because you have to put it out there before you get the positive feedback right so for all those people that are listening. I WanNa do it in our little. Bit afraid like. How did you kind of like process that in the beginning or was it you just had the fire and you were just going forward no matter what no? Yeah a little bit of everything one you have to put your head down and just like a severe gonNA write. Just start writing the published. Anything yet but at least start writing and getting in front of some people see what they think. I think. What's kind of cool? I mean that one. You can find one person. Who's the one person that thinks? This is really good. Like one person you trust and I don't know maybe it's your mom. Your wife May get your aunt for me it I I mean I remember. My aunt like it's just hilarious relationship like that and she just loved it right and it doesn't matter who is that it could be. Your Business Partner. It could be a client of yours and you should. You should do this and I think just having someone that believes in what you're doing doesn't hurt but at the same time it's up to you right. I think it's just you have to put your head down so if you realize if you think that you should do it just give it a shot because I think to be relevant you have to create like what do you stand for. What do you believe in and it might not be writing. Might be a podcast. Might be a video. It might be pictures. Could be like it might be a speaking of NF. Whatever the thing is I think you just have to think about what is it. And it doesn't have to be just so obvious about your business like if you're in law they don't have to just write about law you to write about South Charlotte if you live in South Charlotte or traveling and you like you like traveling to California. There's so many different ways to do it because then they can relate to. Yeah are ways to do it or if it's just a logo on the other website whatever that might be or you just talk about it a lot because people are gonna WanNa talk to you at all by the way you do that. I think there's a lot to it so it's a challenge so I mean I think everyone's going to have a different way of dealing with it putting yourself out. There is not easy. It's really not. It gets easier though right. Like if you put in the reps yes to have it so you guys talked about it on your podcasts. With my body and he had said much creating a one a two second video. If you create this habit it were a book. Power habit has tons of bucks tons of content about this. It's it's just science. It's like it just proven that if you do the same thing it you can repeat it so if you've a podcast that you put out every Monday and you do that enough times you'll put it out every Monday. You hold to it so it's going back to like how do I create content? Well I would say I think I did Tuesday and Thursday. I would publish a bar on Tuesday Thursday. Now it's changed in Santa Ana aren't necessarily have set days that I'm doing it at the beginning to get it off the ground. I felt like I had to do it on those. And maybe those date. Maybe it was one day a week at a time. Then it was two days and it was whatever that is doesn't matter if it's one a month right just if you stick to that you create this habit and it just becomes part of what you do is a lot of people. Have these exclusives right? Islam? Don't have time and I totally get that companies like you and I exist because we can help with that and there's plenty of people that can help with that. You can hire someone overseas if you want to help with that. But I believe it's a habit and you were just talking about earlier We had a client that we're working with and he's reading the book. David Doggies can't hurt me and so I was just giving the example. Someone had read the book yet and talks about getting calluses when you play golf or you climb or whatever it is you get blisters and stuff will if you do it enough times. You actually get a callous. And now it's not gonNa drop anymore so you have to tell us your whatever your mind to continue to go every single day and if you hear people talking about the ones you hear about Exercise Journal. Meditation Waking Up at a certain time like whatever thing that is at excites at one person. If you do it enough times in a row it becomes a habit like waking up in the morning is not much fine but if for the for the person that can do it every single day at five. Am eventually they'll just wake up at five. Am because their body saying it's time to get up. So I think those types of things if it's just this routine so like Vlada case of what you're doing if you happen to plug your phone every day when you wake up and take a video or picture of wherever you are if you travel a lot you don't you do that. Twenty times in a row us can do it every day is going to do. I think that's it is putting your head down doing it. Not An yeah you have to have this thing of like not caring but I also think there's this point of people are so worried about what if they don't like it? What if they don't care about it which I think is a good thing because they were never your audience anyway. You're not trying OCTA those people why I love that one hundred percent what. I'm trading decision for you. That's okay that's totally. Oh and it might not be it. Might be later might be down the road but you have if you start to get into different businesses. There's always someone that's GonNa come in plans officer could be your business partner to be somewhat. I don't know if we should do this. We might turn some people off those people. You're turning off. Maybe it's a future employees. Maybe it's an existing employees. They start hearing your thoughts and you want to work for you anymore. Maybe needed vet them out any way that they shouldn't have been at the company or prospect that you're going to go spend hours with. I mean isn't it? That not to be polarizing. It doesn't mean you have to go and take these crazy tags and who knows what you're gonNA. What type of stuff? You're going to put out there. But I think he just who you are and you just share it because there is an audience that says No. That's I like that. I want more of that and I WANNA talk to. You can have your time. Can I have some your expertise? Soom your specific knowledge. I need that for my business if that or just let's just hang out right young people but yeah. It's such a healthy viewpoint. I think it is one of the things that people are terrified of. His is negative comments or negative feedback. And if we come at it with this perspective of it's not for everyone nothing is think of anything in your life sure. Hopefully that little message got through to some people. Because I think that's what people need to hear it's really important. He mentioned multiple platforms. Started in writing. Obviously before podcasts and video were what they are today right now. I think you're mostly focused on podcast. Kind of your core pillar content is true. How much are you still riding about kind of managing funny recently? Like I've been writing more. Okay but still doing podcasts. To do it at all it spins. I've just seen like if you know. They always said like well. If you start creating content people will find it eventually. Perhaps if it's good or maybe not maybe one person finds it. Maybe that's the one person you need it. Google is a real place. People still go to Google and they searched off and they find and I just had someone in here is like I will. If I don't find the business on Google then I don't think they exist or feud on I two pages of Google that I'm not interested. That's his perception. It's on my is not yours. That's what he thought. He found our podcast production article about it. And that's how we found us. It was through Google's through Seo but it was all genuine comedies. Like I liked you. That was it so anyway. I guess what I'm saying is all of it which creating all of it. It content writing writing a lot podcasting. I would say podcasting is like you said the pillar is like a lot of it starts there because you can think through these things a lot when we're talking you have to be on a little bit because all all re listen to this and I'm like what was I talking about there. We now or no. That's a really good idea. Let's dive in share it with the team and so the team can take the high castle. Yeah I think podcasting is just such an easy way to consume content. And there's so many different ways you can look at it because it could be for the growth of Your Business. It could be for internal train for your team. It could be for your existing client base so many viewers focused on growth right. Like isn't it better to buy your existing clients? Keep the people that you have keep them happy maybe. Faq podcast and you talk about whatever it is that you talk about with your clients. Are they ask questions? You answer them on the podcast. That your podcast. So a lot of it starts with that in the naked. Turn into as you know you can transcribe our gas and it can become your blog if you clean it up a little bit exactly in when we first started this we talked about how scripted or an Oscar de onto being. Both of us have kind of the same style lake. Let's just sit down and and talk and that's the most interesting to me because of what you just said you're in the moment you have to be quote unquote on and paying attention. And that's where the most interesting things come if I sent you ten questions ahead of time and you had prepared answers. This wouldn't be that interesting in my opinion. Th there's a place for that and some people need to start there but I love interview I think in some ways can be a crutch in podcasts and can get a little bit too easy in an escape but if you do this and really like explore and you say something hang on a second. Let me let me learn more. You can number one deepen relationships with who you're talking to but really get those nuggets out to your audience right while you're talking right now. It's your podcast. You're the one who controls the Mike. You control the conversation you can tell me to shut up and you take what People Wanna learn from you. They want to hear you. They want to hear the gas. Perhaps but they tune-in because view. You're the one kind of directing it and I think there's a lot to it. Sound Bites are good. Or what's the context or did originate from getting tired of soundbites like if running if we have people running for president where they can get up and they can speak in thirty second to minute clubs or someone can see what's their hour long talk about this in might be back and forth question answer like what do they think about this and they might not hit every answer out of the park and I get it so much of this stuff has to be scripted. But what do you think about it? Like the Joe Rogan. Podcast not to say you have become Joe Rogan. Because listen to that there'd be three our podcast to our podcast. They're divey you get out of it. You're like I am so tired. Just talks or an hour to we had someone on our podcast and he loved it so anyway published a podcast. It was ninety minutes long and he talks by business. Party came in and he said I think he was too long and he looked at him. He said you're asking people to spend and what the number is. Let's say it's not a cheap investment of the type of business running but they're spending thousands of dollars every quarter to work with you. Do you think just going to buy from you. And not to say they're going to buy after listening to one podcast in their spending time with you like. They're actually sitting in a room with him every single month for years on end. They're going to invest ninety minutes to listen to you to hear by while that's the type of person I want to spend time with so I think that allows people to get behind the curtain a little bit to say what does he stand for. What does she stand for? I want to spend time with that person that goes back to one of the first people that engaged us because they were like they're in the financial services industry. Not Most of our clients aren't in that industry but we do have some in there but they're trying to recruit other young advisors to come in there he says we're lying to these people and they're lying to themselves because we're telling them that they can win. So we enter four hundred people we hire a hundred people. Four of them are pretty good. One of them's really good. Those are terrible numbers and it's a waste of time. We're spending all this money. So why would someone worth you? Start listening all their products and services in his grades. Unlike that's great I get it. We already know you have a good company good products. You have good services for the people that like it. What do you stand for starts telling these stories getting these things out there? And you're like that's the stuff that people want to hear. What did you believe? And he's got this foundation that he created for different things that he was doing and he's got these leadership styles in these books that he's reading. He's got a way to captivate an audience. That's it the products and services and all that other stuff is somewhat assumed that you already have that or we'll figure that out down the road why would I even WanNa talk to. Oh I get it because if I'm going to grow my career I want you to be my leader. I want you to be my metaphor right. That's it nothing to do with financial services so the compliance office is like well. If you'RE GONNA talk about financial services we're going to have an issue but if you're talking about leadership doing the things and traveling and family have at it right not have at it but for the most part yeah it goes back to the old saying that's been around for my entire life is people buy from who they know like and trust and podcast or video or writing. Less people started to get to know you. I mean it's pretty simple when you boil it down in those simple terms sometimes. It's hard like I think. Some with a podcast. I've noticed this. He started getting the getting the groove. Let's say certainly in a little bit of a flow state when you start talking with someone else but at the beginning it's and you might lose it zero. I got warm I talk about. I forgot but at the beginning. It's like you gotta just feel each other out a little bit and I think sometimes you don't get to some of that good stuff until later on. Not just an podcasts. Such as an conversation in general and I think as you think through things are just. There's ways to do it so it's not going to be at that one blog posted at one podcast. That one video might not do it but you do it consistently overtime over in. You might update your thoughts or thesis on that topic. But that's okay cause. Aren't we here too just like you're doing it? Constantly refining where small business were allowed to do it. You know it's like we don't have to turn on the titanic. You see if we're ever worked for a large company. See LIKE WE WANNA GET. This approved like well. That's GONNA take eight months. So why can't we just go? We can pivot as we see fit. And it's up to you if you made a bad decision. Well you have to live with your decision maker but I think we can do that with content and continued to share Graydon Edit and so now you're taking all this great content knowledge and experience and kind of the results had and you've got all these other people and we're both in the same boat here I think is what we're trying to push people a little bit into exploring some of these different platforms. Are you having good luck? Having people consider starting their own podcasts or decent video content like how? How successful are you? There it's interesting because use the word push and I know you don't do this either but that's an interesting it's all it's an you've heard this right. You can't convince the unconventional becomes a waste of time. I've sat there before. If you've ever sold anything and they start telling you every. Why am I here that you asked me here but you already figure it out so have at it and if someone is saying I would never do a podcast? Hey podcast I think people who do pockets are stupid. It's not the you know and I get it. We're not necessarily talking about that person but there are people there like the insurance industry is a perfect example of this because we came in like. You can't do that. They will say that they would look at you. Funny you're like wait so you create content and the insurance business and what is content even mean and then it was like a podcast. You're really wasting your time now right so they would say these things well. They were the unconventional they would never consider it. Not a million years but then you show up and all of a sudden. They're like they start paying attention. They see an email they see social media. They ask questions you see him an event. What are you too saw your blog? I heard about this. You're doing these things. And then they start getting interested and then people start coming around. So then yeah. I think that's just an example of people that weren't invincible. But over time and they go to their networking events or their trade shows of their trade magazines and they start hearing that you have to create contact. You have to be authentic. What do you stand up what you stand for what you believe in and so? Yeah so the people that sought for everybody. But it's becoming for more people I mean the stats proven out. I mean just watch the acquisitions. That's going on and podcast in the amount of money so anytime. There's a large sum of money sums of money that are being thrown around. There's clearly interest in this platform content. Podcast ANY TYPE OF CONTENT. Really podcasting. Obviously being a big thing. So yeah I mean it's It's interesting conversations to have but typically we see it like they had to have had some level of marketing in their past. They've done something. They've tried it out break. Maybe they started. Why because you you and I built seen this or you go to website and the last ball posted from two thousand sixteen and we laugh at that but it's true. It happens all the time or have an instagram pay. I see businesses that they have these things or business leaders. They have these things but they're now updated so actually is a negative. Because like saying you're on social media you say you do these things you say you create content but you did and you don't you're linked doesn't even work. I click on twitter page. And you don't even have a twitter profile but you still have it on your website. You're not paying attention and people are back checking these things. They're going your business. Found you on Google. So that's good. That's one now. I'm GONNA go check. And I'M GONNA Backtrack Song I go to your linked profile. You're not active on like. Do you not doing these instruments. What are you doing? What are you stand for and I think more and more people are looking to say you said trust. I want to trust you. I want to see what you stand for. Now there's still other things s still gonNA meet. You gotTa shake your hand or see you on a video call. Whatever that might be your phone call by. Are you really there you really doing this? And so people are realizing now that I need to do this and it might not be a podcast and that's okay. It could just be a boggles ages. Be Update you're linked in profile little things like that. What do you stand for him? And then just do that and just little by little. So we're not here to say you need to go critic podcasts. And Blah is too much. It's no different than when you started. I started like you just small steps. What's also cool is. We've found people that we are talking to and they've already created content but it was in their notebook or on their computer at home and they were journaling and they were writing and they realized that they thought that was just for their team. They're four people on their team than they're sharing it over email so the last two years and I'm like I bet you there's good stuff in there and he's like I think you're right and so before was like all product company-specific thanks xena. They find this and they're like dat becomes their blog posts that they put on Lincoln and people are saying. Oh Man I really liked that stuff. It's possible you've already created a lot of this content and now used to curate it so to me. It isn't even about marketing. It's about content all these different tools and social media Lincoln. Dan I think what people need to do is just create content. What you do at that content. There's all sorts of things you can do with it. 'cause what it's social media or whatever internet or whatever the stuff just stops to exist instagram shutdown linked gone. I mean these things happen. So people were the INSTAGRAM experts. Or they were the pincher. That's fine just create content because the world shuts down you still have the Content Ryan. It might be in a piece of paper. It might be a handwritten letter that you send me based on. I thought you'd be interested in this. And it's a gift to the other person to create that stuff. I think it's all about content in this if you look around and pay attention to what you consume on a daily basis. It's all contact tron. Net flex was Amazon prime. Doing they create million dollars. Shows just a you subscribe to Amazon prime for for that. So they got us. 'cause they have the ability to charge a fee for that content and other companies can do by just pay attention a sporting event where they do it for steak and there's other business aspects of it. They get to sell advertising on the back end of it. They could try new relationships on the back end. It's to me. It's all about content. So are you going to create the next Amazon? That's not what this is about. That's an extreme example. I think we can take it down to something much smaller and it could be just the business coach in your local town. That creates it that way. I think you brought up a great point which is some people are creating content and have no idea. Maybe they know they're creating content but it is for this specific audience right or whatever so if they can take a step back and really see what they're doing whether it's journaling or anything along those lines even emails that they're sending that they're not even thinking of viewpoint they're probably said in that sitting on gold and I hadn't really thought about it in that perspective. I'm GONNA personally take that little nugget away because I'm always having this conversation. I'd love to do this but I have nothing interesting to say. I've never created anything which is just crazy to think about right. We're all creating every single day. I guess it's the same analogy always here where I'm not a salesperson. I'm not going to sell them. You're selling people on your ideas and your opinions every single day. So it's another way I'm GONNA use that. That's another way for people to think about content. One thing you're not going to become the next Joe Rogan. Maybe you are go for. You're not gonNA ask Taylor Swift. Maybe I don't know like not your to crush people's dreams or anything but imagine if you had ten people or zero. Let's say I'll go the ten people ten people listen to? What if that one person was the one person that could change the course of Your Business? It happens it happens. How many people do you need? I I talked to this. One person there in the fitness world and there they wanted to be huge they want linked in and facebook then numbers they wanna to ads and they wanted to reach all these different people said well. What do you want? I start talking about their clients. Some clients that they had an eagle in. This person is woman listed. These kinds described his client guides very similar. If in any one went to this one client so came down to this one specific client if I had a client. That was like this. That's what I want. And so those do you like thirty. I said. Then why do you need to reach hundreds of thousands of people? It's just thirty and then to think through that so maybe nobody does care what you have to say except for the people that actually do care in that might be just a few people just talked to those people. Don't worry about everybody else. You're not going to get those people anyway. So what are we doing here again it? It's frustrating like you. Put instagram posts. No one like you know. Good Lox so you're not that algorithm like Google talks about good luck gaming. Gulu people try to do it. Well then they'll come in. You're like we need to do this because this is how the only doesn't work like that because guess what cares if anyone liked your post. Maybe one person likes your post but that was the person that you got. Have a conversation with the new. Learn something or who knows. It doesn't have to be a game to get a business deal out of it because all times. We're talking about that or nobody lessons that go back to zero. You've like you said the beginning you learned from just having a conversation or maybe learn nothing from me right but force your team so we had a podcast that we did in here with Tim Pike. Who is anyone follows football so she is basically Ohio states and he was urban. Meyer's coach so in two thousand twelve. A reminder got there. They went undefeated but he realized he went national championship game. And he's like while we're way behind Alabama. We're have to figure this thing out. And they realize that there was a leadership issue in here anyway. Fast forward he meets Guy Tim Kite at a cocktail party and then they met like a few days after that. And they're like we need to work together and he said he's like urban. I will work with you and your team but I have to work with you. I worked on. Leadership is a coach and he works with large brands. All over the world. All this kind of stuff and reach out at one point that heard of him at this time and sure enough two thousand fourteen. They win the National Championship. But you could see like getting into this was all based on the leadership that they had developed internally the culture of the organization the accountability that they had in a organizations in the in the program the football program at the AD so anyway. We have tim on the podcast recently. Well that's required listening for everyone in our organization because the stuff that he was talking about related to all the things that we talk about as we're leading this company and guess what if you listen to that you don't like it or do you think it's just total bs or whatever it is then you know were you not maybe not in the right place for someone wants to come work here. Go listen to this. This is an example it can be copyright so no one on the outside. Listen to it but you're team. Listen to it for the people that might eventually listened to it. And you don't know when you gotta go hire someone new will now you have all this content that could relate to that right so it doesn't have to be about. I want to grow my business people. I WANNA ten times by bit. Whatever that's great. Those are great ambitions to have what about keeping the stuff like I mentioned before that you had so these required listening internally and maybe people listened to on the outside too so obviously I believe in it. Sometimes I think it's a blessing to have no listeners. Especially in the beginning. That's what I try to tell people to and they're like well. What if no one likes or whatever or more so? I'm afraid to stare into the camera lens or do something but you have no viewers or listeners. In the beginning so it's just practice right just go again put in the Reps. It's so important in. I do get out of just doing it for myself. So no one listen to. No one even gave me any feedback. I would continue to do it. Maybe not forever. I don't know right. It's hard to put yourself in. Their shoes were lucky enough to like touching people in some way at least a little bit. Yeah I mean you have to look at it in all those different levels. Yeah you do and I mean I see you come in your smile on your face when you're having fun doing it and not. I get it to you though there's people that say. I have no time for this. And there's no doubt and you don't and you don't have the energy of the know how people look at this stuff because you would say well. This is really easy but you handed the record. Someone else it'd be like what do I supposed to do at this thing? I'm watching. It doesn't work that way so you have to scale back or you have to hire someone internally you go outsource. I mean. Everyone's doing this. You probably have a CPA outsourced to taxes attorney. You have someone that cut your grass. Maybe you have someone that comes and fixes the things that you don't know how to fix in your house. Isn't that the same thing? And it's like whether or not you're willing to make the investment on it. Are you willing to invest in this content? Maybe you're not right now and that's okay. It's just like us before. There are people that are not there. That's fine but maybe they will be there. I think there's just so many different things that we can do and see it with even with like people who are in an older generation to say. They're not seeing it yet but the realizing they're not going anywhere anytime soon like they might not wanna work forever but they actually do want to work. They just don't want to do the job that they're doing but they learned all of the stuff through all the years how much they can give back. You start seeing them. They Start Mentoring. They like to help other people out internally at their company maybe those are the types of people they can go magic. They created a blog or a podcast then. They've hired to become a speaker and like there's so many things that can happen as a result going back to the question. What did we expect sports producer to be calmer? Did we have to you? Don't know she don't know when someone might call you up to say I wanNA talk to you about that. I WanNa talk to you about writing a book. I WanNa talk to you about training our team. I WanNa talk to you about create an internal podcasts. Yeah so you are currently producing multiple podcast internally multiple properties where. You're writing plus you're helping some of your clients do the stuff. How are you managing the work without easy? A management team gets involved right time. Management is tough. I've been thinking a lot about uninterrupted time lately. So I have not read Neil Stephenson's book he's got he's a Scifi writer and but I've paid attention to it and it's not a sci fi reader but I wrote a blog post I came across it and I think I found it. I think Tim Ferriss had shared it out somewhere. You know. It's like one of those things that you just kinda come across the talked about in its uninterrupted time. So if you want him to write. The next great Scifi novel needs that time so he tells the people that are in his life that people that he loves. It says. I need this time to do this so he realized there's interrupted time. Have at it. What kind of questions? What are we GONNA do? It's got the uninterrupted time. And it's different for everybody. I think the point is as someone who's creating a lot and that's a lot of ideas and kind of like thinking visionary type stuff you can really get yourself. What am I supposed to do next because I could pick a number of things to do so anyway? That's also making sure that you have people on your team. Whether it's internal or outsourced that can help you do it. And also the things all productivity stuff by. How are we doing it well? You've mentioned like pillar content before so the original. Podcast IS ENTREPRENEUR perspective. That was the first one. I just wanted to talk to entrepreneurs they feel like there was no right or wrong answers to a lot of things. But there's these perspectives. That exists out. There I just WanNa talk about those perspectives. You might say I hate social media. That's great. I'm not here to tell you right or wrong. Let's just talk through blogs or whatever that might be what are your perspective but it got deeper and deeper and deeper into just all these stories and why you actually are the way you are. Why you do the things that you do anyway. Those became long form pieces of context our ninety minutes well that becomes snippets of context. I could be a minute. Two minutes five minutes then in every episode inevitably if nothing to do with content or content marketing. Let's say we might talk about content like they might have a website? They might have a podcast of their own. Did you create a podcast? We talk about that for five minutes muscle will. Why don't we have a podcast? We call it content matters and with Z for. You know the cavs stores brand but it was about topics is content matters in its matters is like a words plan words about different topics in the concept marketing arena. So we talked about that we pull that and that becomes a podcast episode. It could be four minutes long. That's that episode. So he didn't WanNa hear some long Forum Bang. You just wanted your four minute snippet about different content topics. That's what that is. That was that and then the sports he preneurs podcast that we have Bullseye on writing a lot and it's taken a lot of time. Can I just turn on a Mike and just start talking about it because then once you start getting into like why just talk about it now where I could go interview somebody or we could go. Get that person on our podcast. Because they're Tom Murphy plays for the Seattle Mariners innocent catcher and watched him at bath and they said he played baseball at the University of Buffalo. I'm from. He's literally at Bat. I'm on Instagram at ten thirty nine doing message the Guy Tom. I was just watching you at Bat. And here you see. You're off to a great start the season. Iva podcast. I would love to talk to you. And he's like it was like the next day that'd be great in the back and forth and then actually this conversation and then you take that with this amazing conversation. The new learn about his story and you learn about what it's like to be a baseball player but he got traded the season before he's got wife and kids and like I just got traded. It's not gonNA fly here to fly there. It's like you get these real stories and you skipped how genuine Anyway we started talking about it. So that became that podcast because I want to have these conversations with these people maybe else listens to it. But I talked to Tom Murphy. And it was really cool. And it's like opens the doors and John his going out to Sacramento John Team. He's got Sacramento. His girlfriend's worker is in school there right now. And he's going to me with the whole strike the Sacramento River cats. That's the name of triple a baseball team. He's the general manager of the team and he says he knows Tom Murphy. He looked at our staff to see. Oh Yeah I love to talk to you know Tom Murphy. You know. So there's like these different connections. It was so they're related. Honestly we use the PODCAST interchangeably. So like if we have someone who's sports related on sports heap in your podcast but they can relate to be an entrepreneur perspectives. Might be two months later. We'll repurpose that. They're different in trout troll mentioning a totally different content. Yes a refrain it but it's similar content right so just just different ways to do it. Yeah are you taking the whole peace or you really editing that down both it depends? It's pens on the percent. Yeah so we've liked safe. I had a forty minute conversation but it was like. Here's fifteen minutes this fifteen minutes and then frame. It then explained it in the blog post in different tax. So how are we doing it? We have people here right so we have graphic design. We have video works. You know. We're not video company but we can do some video work but that's where we worked with you so we had this a client of ours and they were doing this event and they wanted high quality video work like we know someone that does high quality video work than we work well with and trust and we would like to bring them in and so you and I are talking on the phone. I think you're out it's how you like. I'm there let's do it. And so there's different ways to connect with people and to create all these different content but then we have podcast editing websites. But again if we're saying that you can outsource Gustaf will we're GONNA make connections as well with other people that can help us out. Because at the end of the day it's about bringing the best of the client always lived in that world of bringing the best to the client. Yeah how do you handle the siege? Said you're doing some podcast editing for some other for some clients. Are you recording? Are you taking commitment and recording? Are You coaching them? Hey here's a couple of different ways you can capture content and send it to us for now. That's the second one so we're guiding them along on what they should have like. There's different levels you can grab a USB Mike and plug into your computer and you can start basic or you can go get Zuma quarter right and you can do it that way. We'll show you how to do. It will help them out. So it's a combination of those things that we have not were not like showing up with the equipment. We could like if someone wanted to use it. We've talked to people. We have not done that yet. Were Sane will help you with the strategy and the ideas and the thinking through it and you know how to Gaston if you want. Guests are all those things but more or less you handle the actual audio we take the file on the so. We do all the pre in the post while you're doing consulting on the front here's some great topics absolutely strategy. Think talk about. It's like Kevin this kind of conversation. Like what are you interested in thinking about? What's the purpose of this? Or what's the purpose today in what he wanted to be an all those types of things absolutely? It had a meeting this morning. You kind of like an hour. And a half conversation with a client and those that's it but it evolves and then inevitably. They're going to go home and they're gonNA think some stuff. I had this idea. Our I heard this podcast and I really like this. And we talk about that. And there's constant stress strategies huge once they get a little momentum us right. I feel the same way even get a few episodes and all of a sudden. You're noticing things on the day to day that maybe didn't stick out before new like that would be a great thing to talk about. And no one knows what the heck to talk about but just get a little bit in the groove in the practice of it and all the sudden there's more content than you can even imagine. There's no shortage of things to talk about. But most of the people that I talked to say they have nothing to say when they go down. You said it right. You go down this journey at the beginning. It's really hard and then you start going down this path and I've watched people do it. They love it they want to do more of it they wanNA spend. That's what I did so some state and wake I lived at I witness other people now doing it and it's really cool to see it and it doesn't happen overnight and I'll tell you should tell that story. We had a guy and you know again. He's talking water corporate stuff business. And it's fine. I get it in a lot of people wanna understand recruiting the different things. He told me the story that he was in a bar. And he's a bartender. These two guys walked in and they have these nice seats on and they talked well and they had these guys any chatter with these. Like what are you guys do what we're financial advisers? Don't WanNa do that. And he didn't have the means he in think to do something like that and he said I'm going to do that. And then he tells the story from there. I'm like that's the story. People WanNa hear even if it's the most accessible advisor that's out there that's some real miss to it like that's raw stuff. I want to hear that story. Not The buttoned-up version that we you know. Maybe this today. I want to hear that type of thing if you're willing to talk about it if you're not I get it. That's fine too but I think most people are the picture that goes viral. Jeff bezos sitting in his office and stuff over the Amazon Cran on a big piece of less extreme examples again. But it's like. Hey Buddy go to the bank next door. Make sure line of credit doesn't close so Amazon doesn't go out of business this afternoon and it's wild. That's real stop. People are going through these things and again. It doesn't have to always be the rags to riches stories. It doesn't have to be a Saab Story. Could be entertainment can be funny. It could be about your kids. It could be all these different things. And so yeah. Yeah that's a good spot to end it. So where is the best place for people to find? He wears the entry point.

The office has been like dude so some about the post office. Yeah i just wanna know feel weird asking okay so i got this letter in the mail and it looks like you know car that you would get a holiday card and the corner was slightly ripped and then it looked kinda like it was resealed right And then i opened it and it was a car from somebody that usually put something in that card but there was nothing in the card. But so i feel weird to call up that person go. Hey show this card or didn't you. Why do you feel about calling them. What about if they know. I didn't put anything in. And they'll say no and input. Is this something or cash. Yes either give carter cash. Usually and there was nothing in it this time. Who's the person's family member. No just a friend. What's the big deal right. I don't think it's a big deal to call and ask like you really wanna know you've got jacked and you could tell them why you're asking. Yeah i feel kind of weird. The way i have never once gotten a bill where the corner of the envelope. There've been torn up your. It's never the bills. It's always something that looks like it could be a check or like any kind of like a card Uh-huh yeah that's just that little corner a little piece of jack ryan goals on the back of the envelope. This is the second time this has happened since i've moved to this new right. Yeah on like kind of tripping out because the place. I lived at before constantly ripped.

Wait i don here. Why do you have to play any game. i'll just be straight. I have no shame and be like. Hey you forgot to put the gift card in it. Just a joke about it.

Looks like he started a little fire in the toilet and then the steak and goes back to his seat saying that they don't give you hot meals on flights anymore. So he came up with the solution. Well it's not going over well because delta is pissed saying it's no joke in that nothing is more important than the safety of their customers and crew. Now as for marcus monroe. He's now saying it was all staged. It was all fake just a hoax.

Why you creaming what show. We'll be right back. I'm going to talk to the people holler at your boy. Is we should talk an probe. Woody show back to the show is tuesday morning. So menace posted something on our instagram yesterday. And i get how greg feels okay about certain things like you know. he's like a grammar not total nazi. Sometimes i am. I have two things when people use them and they oh right the way that people love to use them now and so he posted on instagram. For what it says. If you dated anyone with j at the beginning of they name you're probably traumatize. yeah and then ellum. Fao father so either. She just misspelled there now. No no no. I it was purposely. Did i see that's the thing. It's one thing if you're even speaking that way. But then when you consciously type it out that way that's like nails on a chalkboard to me like at the beginning of they name like when my kids were learning how to talk that like my son would walk up to a little dog like i touch him foot right. Touch him knows. It's cute cute when ugly insides k. Got gotta loser on spooky goth loser posted on instagram. But if you're an adult and you speak that way. I don't know how you function in the world. So one of the comments on her instagram would say. I'd be traumatized if i was dating somebody who used them in. That context. They in your greg greg talking about it and righteous totally right on this. It's the celebration now of stupidity stupidity. It's it's to be embraced and if you don't embrace it your disa- stick in the mud beyond our culture. Our culture day. Call sir really really. They them celebration but a lot of that stuff is just done. Comedic -ly i. Yeah but i think when you follow the l. m. f. Al there's that's a stupid personnel. Maffeo should be reserved for something hilarious like a raffle like a music group or something. Yeah raffle. It doesn't mildly funny. People people punctuate senses now with. Ll but then. I thought about it. I'm like man traumatize dating somebody with a j. Whose name begins with jay and thought of the my ex girlfriend yana. Ooh that was the worst. I went and i thought about brutal girlfriends. Bright atop the list james and traumatic for you or me probably actress and your name starts at the j. but beyond the awful grammar here this makes no sense as a concept so santa for jason jessica right right. Yeah yeah there's probably more james and other than just one of those things like horoscopes mathematically. Yeah just like the nets date anybody with four letters in their names. You might see because you know. I'm not really any other social media platforms of twitter and every once in a while pop on instagram to see what's up there. Although like my instagram usage is way tammy to way down the last week. I think i've looked at at one. Looks good news and stuff. Yeah but on. There was a hashtag worst relationships. Of course i click on that and so people were sharing which zodiac signs. You should avoid dating mcguire. Click on this so the consensus on the three worst okay. The worst is gemini. So if you meet someone between born between may twenty first and june twentieth you're supposed to just run and then the runners-up scorpio and sagittarius there. a lot of scrolling. If you were interested in such if you're not interested that's it. What's bad about jinnah. i just made up. who cares. yeah he should known that zodiac sign. Enough right oh march areas. They're crazy. They certainly are insane. Yeah so much drama. Greg's immature replies to text messages coming up next on the woody. Show eric crazy fan. Just brought cookies again.

Born and nick sound wave and the production. Randy's here phones are open. Eight seven seven forty four one. Eight seven seven forty four forty. I said coda for you this hour. I want to get to that conversation. Somebody brought it up when Somehow we got in the topic of things we hadn't done in a while on the show. One of them was the topic of what do you do. And how much do you make. 'cause a lot of people have been like reconsidering things this year for different reasons. Maybe lost job. You got Furloughed downsized whatever or just all this time to sit around and think. Because you're not doing much else has gotten you wondering what else could i be doing. I think about that every once in a while. I kind of realized this is just what i do now and this is pretty much all i'm gonna do qualified for but i think like this didn't work out You know what. Could i do right you know and a lot of things you don't even know are out there. There's somebody jobs or jobs that you think like You know. I don't know that'd be okay but i don't know a bill to swing that financially. It's probably not going to be enough And then you realize like wow. I didn't know that that job paid that now. These are individuals who call it. You don't have to tell us your name. You call anonymously. You don't give us please. Don't give us the name of your company. We're not looking to start any drama at your work Things like that but we are interested. What do you do and how much do you make. And it could also change depending on what area of you're living in as well like There is a stories about In silicon valley there's all facebook's and the googles and whoever based out of Silicon valley and with the shutdown of the offices. You had a lot of employers. Just decide they're going up and move somewhere where one on and there was an article recently. We had brought this up when when it first came out about how some companies are cool with you relocating. But if you're relocating from somewhere super expensive cost of living in the silicon valley And you're going to go move somewhere else. They're not gonna pay. You is what the companies are saying like. Look that's fine but we're going to pay you less and people are angry about it and you know the reason we pay you what we pay you to live. Here is because of the cost of living. It's not just the job. It's all these other factors combined and so You know it just depends where you're at your job wherever you are now might pay a lot more if you'd be willing to get up and move and go do it somewhere else but cost living's higher so it's just interesting you do. So what do you do. how much do you make. That'll be coming up later on this hour here on the woody. Show a brand new animated podcast for you.
